Friday's Musings

Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance...............................

13 years ago (Clinton Administration) Senator Harry Reid (D) Senate minority leader pushed his bill to send all illegal's back to Mexico and to put armed guards on the border. Yesterday (4/6/06) Harry did a mea culpa on the floor of the Senate in which he told a heart warming story about being instructed by the daughter of an illegal that he was wrong several days after introducing that bill - and he swore he would redact the bill and sin no more. Well folks, 7 months later he reintroduced the same bill. In short, Dirty Harry Reid, (D) lied on the floor of the Senate - and he is still there and still the Senate minority leader.


Franks Follies ..........................................

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

Before resolving to jog five miles a day, visit a cardiologist to have your heart examined, a podiatrist to have your feet examined and a psychiatrist to have your head examined.

A true friend is someone who knows you're a good egg even if you're a little bit cracked

Nobody can be just like me. Even I have trouble doing it.

But on the Other Hand.................................

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
