Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Party......

About "Inconvenient Truths!"  The EPA did not publicly release a March report that raised questions about the validity of the agency's conclusions that carbon emissions were a cause of global warming and a danger to human health--primary assumptions behind the cap and trade bill that passed the House on Friday.   Critics--including eight congressmen--say the document was suppressed in spite of an Obama administration pledge to bring greater transparency to government.
According to the Miami Herald, Johns Hopkins is one of the four schools (the others being Georgetown, American University and the University of Virginia) in the DC area where Cuba fishes for spies.
Talk about Ponzi schemes!  Bernard Madoff was an amateur.  When FDR first instituted Social Security there were 37 people working for each retired person. The baby boom occurred after that and was obviously not anticipated.   When boomers start to retire in droves, there will be 2 people working (and paying into SS) for every retired person receiving payments.

Particular Paul's Penurious Puns..............................
Mr. Combs had a furniture store specializing in ornate antiques in the baroque style. He had walking pneumonia but was at the store anyway. He was in one of the baroque style chairs rubbing Vicks Vaporub on his chest when he discovered that the soothing ointment gave the furniture a wonderful, deep, rich shine. He immediately told the other furniture store owners since their furniture was more modern in style and they were not competitors. Soon he got reports that the Vicks treatment not only failed to work on the modern furniture, but ruined some of it. Mr. Combs is very unpopular now, and his only consolation is that he learned one important rule: If it's not baroque, don't Vicks it.
During a hike with my friend, I noticed a black bird roosting in a nearby tree. "I've always wondered what the difference is between a crow and a raven," I said. "You have to count the pinion feathers on the wings," my friend explained. "If there are four, it's a crow. If it's five, it's a raven." "Really?" I said, although I knew he didn't have a clue what he was talking about. "Oh yes," he replied. "The difference is just a matter of a pinion."

Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.
God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, but probably prefers 'fruits of the spirit' over 'religious nuts!'

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.
