Obama and Ahmadinejad
Monday, March 25th, 2013 | Author:

Some humor from Joe K

Iranian President Ahmadinejad calls President Obama and tells him, “Barack, I had a wonderful dream last night. I could see America, the whole beautiful country, and on each house I saw a banner.”

“What did it say on the banners?” Obama asked.

Ahmadinejad replies, “UNITED STATES OF IRAN.”

Obama replied, “You know, Mr. Ahmadinejad, I am really happy you called, because believe it or not, last night I had a similar dream. I could see all of Tehran and it was more beautiful than ever, and on each house flew an enormous banner.”

“What did it say on the banners?” Ahmadinejad asked.

Obama replied, “I don’t know. I can’t read Hebrew.”

I realize that there are folks who would like to benefit from Obamacare (e.g., a barber without health insurance).  However, I predict that they’ll discover that it’s not as beneficial as they hope

Obamacare regulations stacked one on top of the other reaches to more than seven feet in height. “This is over 20,000 pages and measures 7′. These are all the Obamacare regulations published in the Federal Register up through last week. Then last Friday they added another 828 pages.”

Another Reason They Call Him ‘Manchurian’
Friday, March 22nd, 2013 | Author:

Comments about Obama…

Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

If you haven’t been paying attention, the EU said that they would bail-out the failing banks in Cyprus, but the depositors at the banks would have to provide up to 10% of their account balances to help.

This cartoon sums it up rather nicely…
