    Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

    When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.

    One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.

    “I may look like just an ordinary guy,” he said to her, “but in just a few years, my father will die and I will inherit $200 million.”

    Impressed, the woman asked for his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.

    Women are so much better at financial planning than men.

    Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

  • Soapbox Saturday – College Educated Idiots

    What is soapbox Saturday? No, I’m not going to sell boxes of soap. When I lived in Chicago we had a section called “Bughouse Square”

    Bughouse Square (from “bughouse,” slang for mental health facility) is the popular name of Chicago’s Washington Square Park, where orators (“soapboxers”) held forth on warm-weather evenings from the 1910s through the mid-1960s. Located across Walton Street from the Newberry Library, Bughouse Square was the most celebrated outdoor free-speech center in the nation and a popular Chicago tourist attraction.

    In its heyday during the 1920s and 1930s, poets, religionists, and cranks addressed the crowds, but the mainstays were soapboxers from the revolutionary left, especially from the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Proletarian Party, Revolutionary Workers’ League, and more ephemeral groups. Many speakers became legendary, including anarchist Lucy Parsons, “clap doctor” Ben Reitman, labor-wars veteran John Loughman, socialist Frank Midney, feminist-Marxist Martha Biegler, Frederick Wilkesbarr (“The Sirfessor”), Herbert Shaw (the “Cosmic Kid”), the Sheridan twins (Jack and Jimmy), and one-armed “Cholly” Wendorf.

    A Bughouse Square Committee, headquartered at Newberry Library, has continued to organize free-speech gatherings there each July in conjunction with the library’s annual book sale. (REF:Encyclopedia of Chicago)

    A soapbox was a wooden crate that they stood on to raise them above the crowd so their voice could be heard better, or make them the center of attention easier. Every once in a while, on a Saturday, I’ll post one of my rants.

    College Educated Idiots

    “This is a petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” the Campus Reform reporter informs students before asking if they would pledge their support for the notion.

    “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream,’” the petition read. “Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”

    What kind of idiots are our colleges turning out? Is this because they are promoting kids in school without an education just to get rid of them? This is just as stupid as “Columbia Law School postpones finals over Eric Garner Trauma

    Our kids are not being allowed to think for themselves. Schools no longer teach how to think but what to think.

    Wake up America!

  • Wednesday’s Hero Departure

    I’m departing fromt the regular Wednesday’s Hero post to ask you do do something special again. On December 13th I asked bloggers to post a picture of a wreath on your blog to commemorate the dead military heroes. Now for something completely different.

    Recently, the law enforcement community has been blamed for the deaths of several people that were in the act of committing crimes, committed a crime or resisting arrest. You have crowds chanting “Death to the police” walking down main street USA. The news media publicizes one side of the story. Very often they minimize the truth for sensationalism. Why? Because, it sells advertisement space, political pressure, or they want to promote a civil war?

    Someone on FaceBook is starting a “Sea of Blue Campaign” the following is from their page. https://www.facebook.com/events/791209947592296/

    Every 58 hours an officer dies in the line of duty. 71 officers died in the 911 attack. Police officers put their very lives on the line every day, making split second decisions. As wives, sisters, mothers and daughters of the men and women in blue, our campaign seeks only to say “We love you, we support you and please come home safely”. On Saturday, December 20th, we are asking everyone that is a member of the force, a family member of the force, is the friend of a police officer, or has simply been helped at one time or another by a police officer to display a blue ribbon. Put it on your mailbox, deck rail, tree, etc. Many will be working on Christmas eve and Christmas Day, missing special moments with their children. They will be there for you when called. Please show our officers in blue how much we RESPECT and APPRECIATE their service and sacrifice.
