To Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it 'in.'

5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the memo field of all your checks, write 'for smuggling diamonds'.

7. Finish all your sentences with 'in accordance with The Prophecy.'

8. dont use any punctuation

9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10 Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat...use a serious face.

11. Specify that your drive-through order is 'to go.'

12. Sing along at the opera.

13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.

15. Five days in advance , tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

16. Have your coworkers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Bottom.

17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream 'I won!, I won!'

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling, 'Run for your lives, they're loose!!'

19. Tell your children over dinner. 'Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.'

20. And the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity...send this e-mail to someone to make them smile.

It's called therapy
Let Me See If I Have This Straight:

His father was a Kenyan, Moslem, black - we have seen pictures of his African 'family

His mother is a Kansan, athiest, white - where are the pictures of his Kansan, white mother and his white grandparents who raised him?

His father deserted his mother and him when he was very young and went back to his family in Kenya.

His mother married an Indonesian Moslem and took him to Jakarta where he was schooled in a Moslem school.

His mother returned to Hawaii and he was raised by his white Kansan grandparents.

He later went to the best high dollar schools, how?

He lives in a $1.4 million dollar house that he acquired through a deal with a wealthy fundraiser. How?

He 'worked' as a civil rights activist in Chicago - has never held a productive job. The presidency is not a civil rights post nor is it subject to affirmative action set asides.

He entered politics at the state level and then the national level where he has minimal experience.

He is proud of his 'African heritage' but it seems that his only African connection was that his African father got a white girl pregnant and deserted her. I didn't know that sperm carried a 'cultural' gene. Where is the pride in his white culture?

He goes to an 'Afro centric' church that hates whites, hates Jews, and blames America for all the world’s perceived faults and then repeatedly covers up for the pastor and the church.

He claims that he could not confront his pastor but he wants us to believe that he can confront North Korea and Iran, right!!!

Yeah, I think I see how he could be a uniter and bring us together, I think the hope is that he hopes no one will put the pieces together.
Americans Afflicted with 'Governmental Reliance Syndrome'

Each time a major event happens in American, whether it happens to be a hurricane, rising gas prices, some housing foreclosures, you name it, the first reaction of the media is "Now that Event A has happened, what is the federal government going to do about it." They expect America's tax dollars to bail out people who spent too much on a house, to be used to artificially change the price of goods, and to "stimulate" an economy that naturally has ups and downs. The problem is that the more the media speaks, the more people listen, and it is becoming alarmingly clear that too many Americans expect government to "solve problems" rather than stay out of the way.

A new survey by Rasmussen Reports shows a shocking level of Americans (63%) feel that "the federal government is not doing enough to address the troubled U.S. economy."

Only 19% hold the opposite opinion. The economy goes up and down, yet nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the government should jump in and try to fix it? This is most disturbing. Why should tax dollars be spent to "fix" something that will fix itself? Why should America borrow money and go into further debt to "stimulate" an economy that is the strongest in the world?

The media has spoon-fed the notion of government involvement for so long that expectations of many Americans have changed. Yet, Americans don't know how the government should get involved. They simply believe that the government should do "something." The problem is that whenever "something" is done, that "something" costs money, and that money comes from us.

As Rasmussen points out, "It is not clear what response is expected." Some (32%) believe governmental regulation of financial markets should be increased. Others (22%) believe it should be decreased. "Forty-five percent (45%) favor increased regulation of the mortgage industry while 24% believe less regulation is needed."

As Republicans work to regain the trust of Americans as the party of reform, lower taxes, and smaller government, focus should also be put on educating the electorate on the wasteful spending that goes on in Washington. The best use of tax dollars is determined by the individual taxpayer, not the federal government. However, as more Americans listen to the media and "expect" government to act, it is up to the Republican Party and conservatives at large to show the American people that government is the problem, not the solution.
