Marines Dont Take Crap
We live in a world of widgets.† People manufacture, distribute, and sell them.† You name it, they're doing it.† I have a friend who is a toilet paper salesman.† God bless him.† It's an honorable job and my butt and I give him a two ply thumbs up thank you butt it's not something I, personally, could ever do-do.††† † I have a friend who told me once that the litmus test for taking a job is if you meet a girl and you're embarrassed to tell her what you do for a living then you probably shouldn't be doing it.† † Let me tell you about a career choice I was never embarrassed to tell girls about, the Marines.† Make no mistake.† The Marines are a business.† We manufacture the world's finest fighting force, and distribute them worldwide to sell Democracy.† If we have to, we'll kick their you know what, provide toilet paper to wipe their butts, and not even take their names because we wouldn't even know how to pronounce them. † † The enemy usually needs toilet paper when we get through with them because when they see the Marines land we usually scare the crap out of them.† What can I say?† War stinks! † There's a lot of things Marines do that stink.† We don't like it and complain that it's not what we signed up to do.†† † We joined the military to see the world but all we end up seeing is bad weather and bad attitudes.† So we say, "If I wanted to deal with this merde I'd have taken a summer vacation in hell or a winter vacation in France.† The Germans spanked them, we had to save their butts, and now they're little ungrateful terds.††† † I'd love to see a recruiter now.† "You'll get to travel the world."† Let's see, where I could have gone in the last ten years, Somalia, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Baghdad.† Wow, can you throw in a free trip to Liberia?††† † It's hard to tell a service member that the grass is never greener on the other side because the places are young men and women go usually don't have grass but war has some positives.† For instance, it educates the American people.† If you asked most Americans what the capital of South Dakota was they'd say, "I don't know."† If you asked them the capital of Afghanistan they'd say, "That's easy, Kabul."† † They also learn geometry too, hello Sunni Triangle.† The only problem is in a few years they might make the mistake of trying to book a vacation to the Sunny Triangle because they heard it was, to use the parlance of our times, "The bomb." † Marines actually have to go to these sewer holes.† They have to live there and survive and it is no joke to them or their families but they love it.† I used to get a kick out of Marines who said, "This is the hardest job in the world.† You never sleep and when you do it's in the dirt; you get to go hiking, with a 100 pound rucksack on your back, and you get paid to visit areas of the world you'd never pay money to go on vacation to see, but it's the greatest job in the world.† You'll love it." † Make no mistake, Marines love their jobs and as you probably know, are "The Few, The Proud."† Marines are prouder then game roosters and meaner then cocks.† If the Marines made toilet paper it would be two ply steal plates in order to cover their butts when they use the head. † Being is a Marine is a dirty job but the best part of it is that we don't take crap from anyone. †Every young man and woman should do a stint.† If you're interested, go down to your local recruiter and put your signature on a piece of paper, preferably one ply.† †

They've been digging and shoveling and leveling posts. I unloaded some boards to be a Mister-Rogers-kind-of-neighbor. And she was still talking about the human bone she'd shown me the day before.
Funny Things We Dream
I often wonder why I wake up so happy, ready to start the day. When I was younger I'd whack the alarm clock, for the fourth time, grumble out of bed and stomp around with a major sour puss. Now I'm up before the alarm clock most mornings, and I don't grumble, not as often as I used to anyway. I'm often anxious to see what the day will bring.
Setting History Straight
Have you ever heard the name Will Schwenk? Or the name Artie Seymour? Probably not. But you will, you will, when the word gets around about how these two inglorious talents were by-passed, how they missed being touched by the magic wand of Fate. For contrary to popular belief, the series of light operettas commonly attributed to Gilbert and Sullivan were in effect written by the pair of nonentities named above, Artie being the melodist and Will the versifier.
I've never really thought of myself as being funny. I don't have much of a sense of humor at all.

The Jokes On You -- Who Should be the Butt of Your Jokes?
This article was prompted by something I heard (second hand) about the performance of a local magician at a child's birthday party. Now, granted, this wasn't done by a clown, but I've seen clowns doing similar things. As one of his tricks, he has a child (a young girl approximately 9 years old) holding two handkerchiefs knotted together. He pulls her hands apart, and instead of a third handkerchief appearing (or a flag, or whatever else) he has a pair of ladies' panties appear. The magician received the reaction he wanted: the audience laughed loud and long at the discomfiture of the young girl. She, however, was on the verge of tears, having been publicly humiliated, for having done nothing more than helping on stage when asked.
Cloning Advantage Super Families
As the cloning debate of humankind continues we find ourselves in an interesting predicament. We see the need of self to extend past one's own lifetime as an innate characteristic; self-preservation has always been one of mankind's greatest drivers of motivation. World Religions in their haste to rally group support and social order amongst the masses have in fact been able to capitalize on this to a large degree, purposing the idea of eternal salvation for a promise of the individual in this life time to do as they are told and live their life in a certain way. That certain way includes among other things; not upsetting the current hierarchy of power. Human Beings obviously have questions which need to be answered such as; How did I get here, How did all this begin, what happens to me when I die and what will happen to the entirety of all I see in the end, when will it all end. World Religions can use these needs of the individual to know such things as a lever to control their psyche, by carefully answering all those questions in some sort of believable and yet un-provable way. Of course over time as more scientific light is shed on various subjects these religions must adapt their story line a bit to keep all the believers buying the storyline. Most of the most successful religions have done a good job of using vague comments on the answers so that they are able to adapt over time.

New Orleans First to Experience Housing Bubble Burst
Are we starting to see the Housing Bubble Burst in the wake of Hurricane Katrina? In New Orleans many homeowner's had their equity literally washed away. They are upside down in negative equity and basically underwater. It appears that the New Orleans Housing marker has gone down the drain. New Orleans experienced significant growth in the past year, prices had increased; many had taken out second loans to pay off credit car debt, which helped fuel the economy there. Relatively few need their credit cards for recent shopping sprees, as they just broke in with a little help from their friends and took those few items they needed for survival.
