Jamaican Sandals

A married couple walked in to a souvenir store in Jamaica. The Jamaican man said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. Dey make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try dem on, Mon."
So, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on.
As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants, and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming, "You got dem on the wrong feet! You got dem on the wrong feet!"


H/T to my Brother in Law for the joke

Phelps Phucked

Fred Phelps preparing to protest at a soldiers funeral

FINALLY ! A military family finally took the bull by the horns and used the courts to send a message to the hateful morons of the Westboro Baptist "Church" and let it be known that they wouldn't take the members of this so called church publically
disrupting their private grief without paying a price.

There are some commenters at Hot Air that decry the ruling against the Phelps as being a case of being a bad first step on the slippery slope towards making unpopular public speech actionable.

But does it really do this? The Phelps clan certainly have an unpopular view, but I think that the venue is what makes their speech actionable, not the speech itself. Funerals are not really public events to be disrupted by anyone wanting to get their name in the news, or at least, they shouldn't be.

The commenters at Hot Air say that the problem thay have is that the standard of what constitutes actionable speech is "too arbitrary" and "drawn differently for different people", and they are correct in that the standards ARE different in different circumstances.

Unpopular, especially radicaly unpopular speech, should be protected in the public arena without fear of legal censure. BUT with that right of public free speech comes responsibility. The courts have long held that you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater without bearing a responsibllity for the consequences.

I believe that we can all agree that private funerals really aren't the correct venue for the type of antics that the Phelps clan seem to like to perform to bring publicity to their political/religious views.

I hope that Snyder family does receive a just recompense for the emotional pain that the Phelps tribe inflicted on them, not because they deserve cash for their grief, but because it seems that with some groups, only monitary pain can provide the common sense decency they otherwise seem to lack.

War, Huh!

This is self explanitory, and should be the response to those that say "violence never solved anything", when clearly, sometimes violence is the ONLY answer...

D is for.....

So. I went to my quarterly check-up with my Cardiologist yesterday just to make sure that the surgeons' handiwork was still working properly. And to reregister my usual plaint of "how the HELL do you expect me to be able to afford the plethora of pills you keep adding on to my list ?!". They drew the usual blood sample to test the usual factors and to ensure that I hadn't had a "silent" cardiac incident in the time since my last check-up.

The doctor on call for the Care Group called me in the evening and informed me that I should hie myself to the Emergency room and expect to be admitted, as my fasting blood sugar level had tested out at 398 and with my B/P and other risk factors, I was seemingly near a stroke or cardic incident occurring.

I went to the ER and they hooked me up to an IV and started drawing about 7 tubes of blood for lab tests. (The nurse/tech was cute, but when she thought it was "normal" for blood to be pooling around on the outside of the IV needle, I started questioning her abilities). They informed me that my glucose level was now at 500+, but that the IV would take care of that. An hour later they unhooked the IV and told me to go home and that I was to go see my Primary Care Physician first thing in the morning, unless I experienced any unusual pains or numbnesses. which I should regard as a sign to return to the ER asap. (they had me there, why not just keep me for observation if they were concerned of further developments?!).

I saw my PCP this morning....I didn't have an appointment, and the desk clerk was outraged at the lack of same, but my PCP is a good guy and slipped me in between some regularly scheduled victims patients and added two new drugs to my already overextensive list of daily meds and told me to come back in three weeks.

They took a blood draw to check my kidney and heart enzymes but never took a glucose reading, just assumed that a diagnosis of adult onset type 2 Diabetes was to be added to the list of my medical conditions. So I'm in limbo for the next three weeks as the newly added drugs (to) my already extensive list of daily medications start the process of trying to keep a stable blood glucose level in my system. What fun!

Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh at it all, and remember that, no matter how seriously you take yourself; you aren't making it out alive at the end, so enjoy the ride while you can.

"CLINTON'S DANGEROUS WORK ENVIRONMENT"

Having had an argument with an ardent Shillery supporter this morning, I thought that this list was apropos for the upcoming debates. And before you say it, yes there ARE legitimate accidents and/or suicides in any large group of people, but think of any large endeavor that you have been involved in and ask yourself if it isn't strange that so many had accidents/committed suicide in such a concentrated period of time and in such a way that investigations into various Clinton affairs/scandles were stymied because of those deaths.

Co-inky-dink? I dun't theenk so Lucy!.

Just a quick refresher course lest we forget what has happened to many "friends" of the Clintons.

1- James McDougal - Clinton's convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr's investigation. (I think that this one was "natural causes"...but you have to admit that the stress Mr. McDougal was under could be labled "Clintonian induced")

2 - Mary Mahoney - A former White House intern was murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown. The murder happened just before she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment in the White House.

3- Vince Foster - Former White House counselor and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock's Rose Law firm. Died of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide (even though there were heel drag marks leading up to where his body lay in a park; there was very little blood found at the scene,and the fatal bullet was never found).

4- Ron Brown - Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman, reported to have died by impact in a plane crash. A pathologist close to the investigation
reported that there was a hole in Brown's skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died.
A few days later the air Traffic controller committed suicide.

5- C. Victor Raiser II- Raiser, a major player in the Clinton fund raising
organization died in a private plane crash in July 1992.

6- Paul Tulley - Democratic National Committee Political Director found dead
in a hotel room in Little Rock, September 1992. He was described by Clinton
as a "Dear friend and trusted advisor".

7- Ed Willey - Clinton fund raiser, found dead November 1993 deep in the
woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head.
Ruled a suicide, Ed Willey died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton groped her in the oval office in the White House. Ed Willey was involved in several Clinton fund raising events.

8- Jerry Parks -Head of Clinton's gubernatorial security team in Little Rock.
He was gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Park's son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information.
After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house.

9- James Bunch - Died from a gunshot suicide. His "Black Book" of people
which contained names of influential people who visited prostitutes in Texas
and Arkansas was never found.

10- James Wilson - Was found dead in May 1993 from an apparent hanging suicide. He had ties to Whitewater.

11- Kathy Ferguson - Ex-wife of Arkansas Trooper Danny Ferguson, was found
dead in May 1994, in her living room with a gunshot to her head. It was ruled a suicide even though there were several packed suitcases, as if she were going somewhere.

Danny Ferguson was a co-defendant along with Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones lawsuit. Kathy Ferguson was a corroborating witness for Paula Jones.

12- Bill Shelton - Bill Shelton, Arkansas State Trooper and fiancÚ=E9 of Kathy Ferguson. Critical of the suicide ruling of his fiancÚ=E9, he was found dead in June, 1994 of a gunshot wound. He also was ruled a suicide at the gravesite of his fiancÚ.

13- Gandy Baugh - Gandy Baugh, attorney for Clinton's friend Dan Lassater,
died by jumping out a window of a tall building January, 1994. His client was
a convicted drug distributor reputed to have sold drugs to the Clintons.

14- Florence Martin - Accountant & sub-contractor for the CIA, was related
to the Barry Seal Mena Airport drug smuggling case. He died of three gunshot
wounds.

15- Suzanne Coleman - Reportedly had an affair with Clinton when he was
Arkansas Attorney General. Died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head, ruled a suicide. She was pregnant at the time of her death.

16- Paula Grober - Paula Grober, was Clinton's speech interpreter for the
deaf, from 1978 until her death, December 9, 1992. She had vast information
about both Clinton's personal lives. She died in a one car accident on a
deserted Arkansas road.

17- Danny Casolaro - Danny Casolaro, an investigative reporter, was investi-
gating Mena Airport and Arkansas Development Finance Authority. He slit his
wrists apparently in the middle of his investigation.

18- Paul Wilcher - Attorney investigating corruption at Mena Airport with
Casolaro and the 1980 "October Surprise" was found dead on a toilet seat June
22, 1993 in his Washington DC apartment. He had delivered a report to Janet
Reno 3 weeks before his death.

19- Jon Parnell Walker - Jon Parnell Walker, Whitewater investigator for
Resolution Trust Corp., jumped to his death from his Arlington, Virginia
apartment balcony August 15, 1993. He was investigating the Morgan Guaranty scandal.

20- Barbara Wise - Commerce Department staffer, worked closely with Ron
Brown and John Huang. Cause of death unknown. She died November 29, 1996. Her bruised, nude body was found locked in her office at the Department of Commerce.

21- Charles Meissner - Assistant Secretary of Commerce who gave John Huang
special security clearance, died shortly thereafter in a small plane crash. (boy, small planes were really having problems in the Clinton Era, huh?)

22- Dr. Stanley Heard - Chairman of the National Chiropractic Health Care Ad-
visory Committee died with his attorney Steve Dickson in a small plane crash.
Dr. Heard, in addition to serving on Clinton's advisory council personally
treated Clinton's mother, stepfather and brother.

23-Barry Seal - Drug running pilot out of Mena Arkansas , death was no
accident.

24-Johnny Lawhorn Jr. - Mechanic, found a check made out to Bill Clinton in
the trunk of a car left at his repair shop. He was found dead after his car
had hit a utility pole.

25-Stanley Huggins - Investigated Madison Guaranty. His death was a purported suicide and his report was never released.

26- Hershell Friday - Attorney and Clinton fund raiser died March 1, 1994
when his plane exploded.

27- Kevin Ives & Don Henry - Known as "The boys on the track" case. Reports
say the boys may have stumbled upon the Mena Arkansas airport drug operation.

A controversial case, the initial report of death said, due to falling
asleep on railroad tracks. Later reports claim the 2 boys had been slain before being placed on the tracks. Many linked to the case died before their
testimony could come before a Grand Jury.

THE FOLLOWING PERSONS HAD INFORMATION ON THE IVES/HENRY CASE:

28- Keith Coney - Died when his motorcycle slammed into the back of a truck.
7/88.

29- Keith McMaskle - Died stabbed 113 times, Nov, 1988

30- Gregory Collins - Died from a gunshot wound January 1989.

31- Jeff Rhodes - He was shot, mutilated and found burned in a trash dump in

April 1989.

33- James Milan - Found decapitated. However, the Coroner ruled his death
was due to "natural causes". (yeah, Jihadi death by a knife/sword cutting through the throat is "natural causes" too!)

34- Jordan Kettleson - Was found shot to death in the front seat of his
pickup truck in June 1990.

35- Richard Winters - A suspect in the Ives / Henry deaths. He was killed in
a set-up robbery July 1989.

THE FOLLOWING CLINTON BODYGUARDS ARE DEAD:

36 -Major William S. Barkley Jr.

37-Captain Scott J . Reynolds

38-Sgt. Brian Hanley

39-Sgt. Tim Sabel

40-Major General William Robertson

41-Col. William Densberger

42-Col. Robert Kelly

43-Spec. Gary Rhodes

44-Steve Willis

45-Robert Williams

46-Conway LeBleu

47-Todd McKeehan

Quite an impressive list!

Talk about a dangerous work environment. Like I said at the outset, any single one of these deaths could be truly "accidental" or unrelated, but you take the sheer volume of the numbers and the fact that the only tie between all of them is that they were all involved in some way to the Clintons, and that they could testify against the Clintons.

How would you feel if you knew damaging information about either of the
Clinton's?
