Today’s Humor

An Amish farmer, walking through his field, notices a man kneeling down and drinking from his farm pond.

The Amish farmer shouts:

‘Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuhen haben dahin gesheissen.’ (Which means: ‘Don’t drink the water, the cows have crapped in it.’)

The kneeling man shouts back:

‘I’m a Muslim, I don’t understand you. I speak Arabic and English. If you can’t speak in the sacred tongue of Islam, speak in English.’

The Amish farmer says:

‘Use two hands, you’ll get more.’

Creativity

I tell you, some people are so imaginative and creative.  Either that or they have some very strange “connections” with their pets.  Or, their pets are typing in English and completing their own blogs (scary).

Go take a look here, and don’t laugh too hard.

Europe’s Terrorism Puzzle

Across the Atlantic, a number of pieces of the terrorism puzzle are gradually being exposed. We see some indication of the size the issue, and the pervasiveness of institutional funding that originates in the middle-east.

Douglas Farah has broken some of this down in a post today and he begins to ask the logical questions that should follow from this trail.

The most disturbing to me is a report that Britain’s Home Secretary Jaqui Smith believes the police are being overwhelmed by the growing threat of radical Islam in Britain.

“There are 2,000 individuals who are being monitored. There are 200 networks involved and 30 active plots,” she said.

And she warned the menace of Islamic fanatics is mounting so fast that police will be unable to cope within a year—

Where Mr. Farah does not draw a connection yet, and it would be interesting to pursue if I had time, is how similar events and trends in the United States are complicated by the open routes on the southern borders, and the Latin American links to, and organic terrorist threats and drug cartels.

Today’s Humor

One dark night outside a small town on the Wisconsin – Minnesota border, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed over to the fire chief.
‘All our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They
must be saved. I will give $100,000 to the fire department that brings them
out intact!’

But the roaring flames held the firefighters off.

Soon, more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. In the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian Rural Township volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians well over the age of 65. To everyone’s amazement, that little run down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant and, without even slowing down, drove straight into the middle of> the inferno.
Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old-timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire and fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Norse old timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret formulas.
The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000 and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters. The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking their chief,
‘What are you going to do with all that money?’

‘Vell,’ said Ole Oleson, the 80-year-old fire chief, ‘Da first ting ve gonna do is fix da brakes on dat stoopid truck!’

Did You Know…?

Did you know that SEAL Team 3, Michael Monsoor’s unit is the most decorated team since Vietnam?

Did you know that Michael Fumento is the only reporter that has written about Monsoor’s CMOH, that was embedded with the team?

Get on over and read Fumento’s piece here.

Congressional Medal of Honor – Monsoor

Our nation’s highest military award. It is awarded for extraordinary valor in action against an enemy. To quote the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, “The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor.”

Today this award is being presented by the President of the United States. Did you know that? Did you read it in today’s USA Today, NY Times, Washington Post? Did you see a blurb on CNN? I certainly haven’t seen a word. Now in fairness, perhaps they like to report after the fact but still this day has been on the schedules for a while now. There should be some attention being paid to it.

I was going to write a lengthy rant on this but, I think it is in appropriate. Instead, I ask you the head over to Blackfive. This is what we should be doing. If you cannot get to B5 you need to find a way, because you need to know Michael Monsoor. You need to know that there are heroes among us, and that there are folks who will / do / did “water the tree of liberty” without hesitation.

When you get to B5, take the time for the video clips.

If you are still interested go to the CMOH Society site for the history and background of the CMOH.

Today’s Humor – Father Murphy

Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and says to the first man he meets, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’

The man said, ‘I do, Father.’

The priest said, ‘Then stand over there against the wall.’

Then the priest asked the second man, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’

‘Certainly, Father,’ was the man’s reply.

‘Then stand over there against the wall,’ said the priest.

Then Father Murphy walked up to O’Toole and said, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’

O’Toole said, ‘No, I don’t Father.’

The priest said, ‘I don’t believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don’t want to go to heaven?’

O’Toole said, ‘Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now.’
