Locker Room Humor

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.
A mobile phone on a bench rings and one of the men picks it up with the speaker phone on
and begins to talk..Everyone else in the room stops talking.

MAN: "Hello?"

WOMAN: "Hi honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes"

WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat..It's only $2,000..
Can I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead, if you like it that much."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models.I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$70,000."

MAN: "OK, but for that price, I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing..I was just talking to Kate and found out that the
house I wanted last year is back on the market..They're asking $980,000 for it."

MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000 .They'll probably take it.
If not, we'll go the extra $80,000, if it's what you really want."

WOMAN: "OK, I'll see you later. I love you so much!"

MAN: "Bye. I love you too."

The man hangs up.
The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.

He turns and asks, "Anyone know who's phone this is?"

Why did Rick Perry cross the road?

to get his mugshot taken.

Why did Bobby Jindal cross the road?

To avoid being called PIYUSH

Why did Jeb Bush walk across the road?

Because his mother asked him not to run.

Martians and Earthlings

A Martian couple and an Earthling couple have met and are talking about all sorts of things.
Finally, the subject of sex comes up:
"Just how do you guys do it?" asked the Earthling.
"Pretty much the way you do," replied the Martian.
Discussion ensues and finally the couples decide to swap partners for the night and experience one another.

The female Earthling and the male Martian go off to a bedroom where the Martian strips.
He's got only a teeny, weeny member..very short and very narrow.
"What can you do with THAT?" exclaims the woman.
"What's the matter?' answers the Martian.
"Well," she replied, "It's nowhere near long enough; it'll never reach!"
"No problem," he said, and proceeded to slap his forehead with his palm.
With each slap of his forehead, his member grew until it was quite impressively long.
"Well." she said, "That's quite impressive, but it's still pretty narrow."
"No problem," he said again, and started pulling his ears.
With each pull his member grew wider and wider until the entire measurement was extremely exciting to the woman.
"Wow!" she exclaimed as they fell into bed and made passionate love.

The next day the couples rejoined their normal partners and went off together.
As they walked along, the Earthling male said, "Well, was it any good?"
"I hate to say it," she said, "but it was really wonderful..How about you?"
"Well," he said, "It was the weirdest thing..She kept slapping me on the forehead and pulling my ears all night."

More on Hillary Clinton's differences with Obama over Syria.

Newsvandal.com
August 21, 2014

The Progressive news site, Newsvandal.com, posted an article recently titled:
"Why Wolfowitz Declared Victory In Iraq",

About halfway through the article about Wolfowitz, there are a few paragraphs about Hillary Clinton under the heading "Hillary Clinton's Protests"

"Since Obama didn't go as far as Hillary now says she wanted to go in smashing Syria, it's even more likely that she played a significant role sucking two more secular regimes down the jihadist rabbit hole, Muammar Gaddafi's Libya and Bashar al-Assad's Syria (although "regime change" has come up a little short in Damascus).
True enough, some Syrian rebels were only helped covertly through her State Department's Conflict Bureau (and the CIA) and, although never officially linked to the U.S., through Libyan weapons transfered to the fight against Assad, another 'Hitler du jour', reportedly at a little-known port at a place called Benghazi.

But now there is little doubt Clinton was present at the creation of yet more reason for Muslim radicals to organize and arm themselves against U.S. aims, allies and proxies - from drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan to Muslim persecution after the 'foreign policy success' of Myanmar."

A Drunk Walks Into a Biker Bar

A drunk walks into a biker bar, sits down at the bar and orders a drink.

Looking around, he sees three men sitting at a corner table.

He gets up, staggers to the table, leans over, looks the biggest, meanest, biker in the face and says:
"I went by your grandma's house today and I saw her in the hallway buck-naked...Man, she is one fine looking woman!"

The biker looks at him and doesn't say a word.

His buddies are confused, because he is one bad biker and would fight at the drop of a hat.

The drunk leans on the table again and says:
"I got it on with your grandma and she is good..the best I ever had!"

The biker's buddies are getting really mad, but the biker still says nothing.

The drunk leans on the table one more time and says:
"I'll tell you something else, boy, your grandma liked it!"

At this point the biker stands up, takes the drunk by the shoulders, looks him straight in the eyes and says:
"Grandpa...Go home!"

War is Hell....by Jim Hightower

War is hell.

Major General Harold Greene could certainly tell you about that - but he's dead.
On August 5, General Greene became the highest-ranking American soldier to die in our unfathomable, 13-year war in Afghanistan, joining 2,339 other service members who've paid the ultimate price for being sent by warmongering politicians into that fight for...well, for what?

No political leader has offered a credible answer for why our troops have been made to sacrifice so much for so little.
Indeed, how bitterly ironic that the general was not killed by the Taliban, whom we're supposedly fighting, but by one of the Afghan government's own soldiers, who we're supposedly helping.
Also, the hellish absurdity of our political leaders' quick-draw approach to war can be seen in a recent report by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service on how much the Afghanistan and Iraq wars are costing us taxpayers.
The tally has now topped a trillion dollars -- not counting the future health care bill for veterans or the enormous interest payments that'll be made on that debt, which will multiply the trillion-dollar outlay three-or-fourfold.

And the meter is still running..The Pentagon, White House and Congress intend to keep a contingent of soldiers and trainers in the line of fire in both countries for the foreseeable future, plus providing more billions of dollars to both countries for building their infrastructure and education systems.
Meanwhile, a trillion dollars and so many American lives later, Iraq is in chaos and falling apart, and Afghanistan is mired in corruption and facing a Taliban takeover.

Think what a trillion dollars could have done for America's infrastructure, educational system and middle-class opportunities if invested here in the past decade.
War is hell...and this one is stupid.

Justin Bieber saves Russian fisherman from bear attack

"Justin Bieber Ringtone Saves Russian Fisherman From Bear Attack"



Justin Bieber saved a Russian fisherman from the clutches of a killer bear.

The deadly beast bolted after hearing the pop brat's smash hit "Baby" blasting out of Igor Vorozhbitsyn's cellphone.

The 42-year-old was walking to his favorite angling spot in the Yakutia Republic when the animal pounced.
As it clawed his face, the rodman feared he was about to be killed.

But then his cell phone started to ring; and the Bieber tone installed by his granddaughter startled the attacker, who fled back into the forest.

Vorozhbitsyn, who suffered deep cuts and bruises to his face and chest, then used his cell to call for help.

The GOP's Minimum Wage Nuttiness....by Jim Hightower

Jim Hightower
July 30, 2014


Anyone who works full time, ought not live in poverty, period.
Raising the minimum wage above the poverty level, is not a question of economics
(even though it would be a big plus for our economy), but a question of morality.
Who are we as a people, a nation - especially in the richest nation in the world - if we dishonor the work ethic with a wholly-unethical wage floor?
It's disgraceful, which is why three out of four Americans support raising the floor, including a majority of Republicans.

Yet, the wage stays stuck at the unconscionable level of $ 7.25 an hour because Republican leaders are stuck on the low-wage dogma dictated by corporate elites.

At a forum in April, GOP Congress critter Dennis Ross of Tampa was confronted by a fast-food worker who asked him to support a minimum wage hike.
"Who's going to pay for it?" snapped Ross, who's paid $174,000 a year by us taxpayers.
A person in the audience rose to say he'd gladly pay a little more for a hamburger so workers could be paid a decent wage - a comment that prompted applause from the crowd.
Yet Ross railed against the very idea of a minimum wage.
"If the government's going to tell me how much I can get paid...then we have a serious problem in this country."

Yes, we do have a serious problem, and it's name is Dennis Ross.
Or, let's call it Lamar Alexander
The Republican Senator from Tennessee said of the minimum wage, "I do not believe in it."
Indeed, he "believes' in the immorality of letting executive-suite kleptocrats set sub-sub-sub-sub-poverty pay scales to impoverish America's workforce.
Or, how about John Boehner, the GOP Speaker of the House, he's gone operatic on the issue,
declaring that he would "commit suicide before I vote to raise the minimum wage."

These guys aren't just out of touch -- they're nuts!
