Nice pic with a even better caption

12 posts in this topic

Would have been a better pic if the photographer had leveled the subject. The building rises slightly from left to right. And no, that wasn't a political statement. winkwink

Very true statement on the picture. The problem is they would rather take a 5 week vacation then find a solution to the problem they created. Aren't they suppose to be working for us? If I took a 5 week vacation before my work was done, I would be looking for a new job when I returned.

In my days working for the State of Minnesota, I frequently quoted Will Rogers: "Just be thankful that we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

That's just it. We've made it so their jobs are too secure with our indifference when it comes time to vote. If we paid attention and voted according to our needs rather than which party endorses them, they wouldn't stay in office very long. There are just too many of us that don't vote that way.

Dear Boss,

I have enjoyed working here these past years. You have paid me very well,

given me benefits beyond belief, supplied me transportation to every place

imaginable. I have 3-4 months off per year and a pension plan that will pay

my generous salary and supply health care and medicine for my entire family

for my life, and after my death, my wife will continue to draw that salary.

Despite this, I plan to take the next 12-18 months to find a new position.

During this time I will show up for work when it is convenient. I fully

expect to draw my full salary and all the other perks associated with my

current job.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that if my search for this new job proves

fruitless, I will be back with no loss in pay or status. Before you say

anything, remember that you have no choice in the matter. I can and will do

this.

Sincerely,

Every Senator and Congressman running for President or for office

This is why I vote anti-incumbent. In general, I think we're almost always better off with a new nitwit as opposed to the old one. I call it my progressive platform.

I guess that's one way, Forgive me but that sounds like a bit of a cop-out to just vote anti-incumbent. That doesn't really sound much different than voting solely based on party support.

This picture reminds me of a bumper sticker I once had.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
