QUOTE: LAMESTREAM MEDIA



"The moral code, the moral compass of the state-controlled media is something to behold. Now, some of you may not know the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner hosted a state dinner last night (January 19) for Hu Jintao of China. Hu Jintao is holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner in prison in China. Not making it up. The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner hosted a dinner for the guy holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner in prison, and the media does not get the irony of this at all. They're too busy running around chasing Sarah Palin and radio talk show hosts over 'civility."'

ARIZONA GUNMAN SELECTS WRONG POLITICAL PARTY EVENT FOR SUICIDE.

Could the very sad and unfortunate event in AZ been avoided, or at least minimized by a friendly, gun-toting constituency ?  Of course! A 2nd Amendment, pro-gun, conservative crowd would have undoubtedly drawn arms and killed Arizona gunman immediately.  Instead, a gun-free crowd of Democrats sadly, are again victims of their own policy/ideology... gunman continues killing and maiming innocent people. Fortunately, the gunman was tackled by two bystanders...Tackeled, not shot!  Pansies!

Unfortunately, an unarmed, passive, feel good, utopian group of people prevented a perfectly legitimate suicide from occurring. Now, they will feel good paying for his life long therapy in prison.

THE TROUBLE TREE


I'm on a tree theme here I guess; this is a story I've been familiar with for a long time...and seems really appropriate for the first day of the new year...I've never forgotten it.

                                      ~
The carpenter I hired to help me restore an old farmhouse had just finished a rough first day on the job. A flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw quit, and then his old pickup truck refused to start.
 
While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation. His tanned face was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.
 
Afterward, he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier.
"Oh, that's my trouble tree," he replied. "I know I can't help having troubles on the job, but one thing is for sure, troubles don't belong in the house with my wife and children. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home. Then in the morning I pick them up again."
"The funny thing is," he smiled, "when I come out in the morning to pick them up, there aren't nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before."
 
Everybody needs a trouble tree...

HAPPY NEW YEAR !
