When Truth is Funnier Than Fiction

Thanks Mike for sharing this on Facebook!

It would be funnier if it wasn't true and if it wasn't a model for how the current administration deals with everything. Arrggg! What is a serious American to do? Laugh or cry I suppose and be sure to vote responsibility. Okay, stepping away from my soapbox!

That is funny and sad all rolled up in one. When did DC become its own planet? I agree with Laura, but even if we do vote responsibly, it seems like these guys get to DC and truly enter their own little bubble world. Do they even know the rest of us exist???

I think it would have been funnier if Poe dressed up in a white powdered wig and did Thomas Edison, don't you?

That is very funny and a bit's a sad state of affairs that this country is in for sure! (Bonnie, if you are on Face Book, look me up, I am there too) ;D

And that's not all the government wants to do. Whether people want to admit it or not, the government is collapsing our education system. (It's a monetary "monkey on their backs" that they don't want to deal with anymore.) The ever increasing higher academics on younger and younger children; ever increasing juvenile delinquency which teachers are not getting any support for controling; testing of neurologically impaired children on their peer level rather than their ability level and those failing scores mandated to be averaged with the general ed. scores; paper process that almost takes a year to get children identified with learning disabilities; integrading special needs children (without assistants) into the general ed. classroom; cutting jobs of other needs and putting them on the teachers to do (truancy officers, being made to be the contact for consistantly late or unexcused absentees; nurses - giving shots, meds, inhalers; exercise "gurus" for overweight children; psychiatrist & pschologist for ESE children being put into the general ed. classroom; analysis, collecting and charting data for whole grade levels; secretaries, stuffing folders with our "business" partners brochures; neurologist, dealing with transexual gendered children; the list can go on; you will find being teachers of the curriculum to be at the bottom!) Let's see, 18children in a class; 2 neurological impaired, 3 juvenile delinquents, 4 ESOL (who have no idea what you're saying), 2 children being brought up to building level for learning disabilities. That leaves 8 children with a good % of passing. And, the govt. wants to pay our salaries according to how many children succeed!! Sounds like a set up for failure to me.
History repeats itself. Will man ever learn from his mistakes? Every great civilization fell due to governments overloading their citizens until it collapsed or was at such vulnerablilty other nations stepped in and took over.
And to think ours could start with the demand of a light bulb, ha!
Love and hugs,

Hi dear! Yes, I have been going Ensign crazy and have even begun a study of LDS with a very nice lady I met recently at a ladies luncheon. It's been such a wonderful eye opener for me. I have so much to learn but I'll get there eventually!

I've been popping in and out of Blogger and have read your previous posts but I didn't have time to leave any comments since I usually read right before I head out the door in the morning. Marshall and I have been quite sick these past two weeks and we have missed two weeks of work due to our bronchitis. We had to go to the emergency room on March 6th and that is why we got our new nebulizer. The motor on our old one had finally shut down. We both had very low oxygen levels and they immediately gave us two breathing treatments then and there. We still have a bad cough and we are both very hoarse but our asthma has really calmed down these past few days. We have gone through five bags of cough drops. Even our cough medicine with codeine and a round of Z-pak didn't work very well. Boo hisssssssss!

I can't tell you how happy I am that Miss Hazie is doing well. I have prayed and prayed for that little bundle of joy to be well and that her mommy and daddy would be able to go on their trip. Praise Heavenly Father!

Hope you and your sweetie are doing well.

P.S. I am craving food from the Fair. Footlong corn dogs, funnel cake, turkey legs, fried pies, cup of cold root beer, corn on the cob and cheese on a stick. I miss the Lubbock County Fair!!!

Deanna :D
