Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, lost of equity in my home, the wars, lost jobs, savings, lost homes, Social Security, retirement funds, etc …. I called a Suicide Hotline.

I had to press 1 for English.
I was connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal.
They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck……

Folks, we’re screwed…..

Dear Friend,

Last Thursday, our family lost a dear friend to suicide. He was my daughter’s boyfriend for over a year, and they loved each other greatly.

While I cannot do anything to help him, I am walking to raise funds that may be able to help prevent another horrible loss in the future. Even one life saved will be worth all the effort!

On this Sunday, November 7, 2010, I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide to walk in AFSP’s Alabama WalkOut of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 33,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.

I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click the “Support This Participant” button on this page.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

Before there was a forest, there was a tree. Before the tree, there was a seed. And, before the seed could grow, it needed the right climate and care to reach great heights.

If you are a parent,a volunteer, BSA staff member, or Scouting supporter, you have helped to sow a seed of greatness in every Scout whose life you have touched. How well you take care of a seed impacts how well it can grow. And after a century of planting character and in

tegrity into the hearts and minds of our country’s young people, more than 100 million Scouts have grown into some of the nation’s greatest leaders, advocates,

citizens, parents, and friends.

From the first Scout in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has created a legacy. From one tree today, we can create a forest to witness the next 100 years of Scouting.

We invite you to help in the planting of 100,000 trees, creating a strong, living symbol of Scouting’s century of contributions.

Arbor Day Foundation
Boy Scouts of America. 100 years of scouting.

Through the Arbor Day Foundation, everyone can plant a Boy Scouts of America 100th Anniversary tree. For each tree that is ordered, the Arbor Day Foundation is donating a corresponding tree to build the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Forest in Montana. Or, you can have both trees planted in the BSA Centennial Forest.

Who will you plant your tree for?

The US Postal service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow-jackets away.

Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer. I use it when I am working outside. It really works. The insects just veer around you. All this time you’ve just been putting Bounce in the dryer! Continue reading »
