Forgot to tell you that last evening a few "rules" from Saul Alinsky were read without us knowing the origination. The one that really piqued my curiosity was the advice to use ridicule as a tool to control people. I was not a bit surprised to find out where it came from since it really answered a question I have had for quite some time. The question? Why does Barak Obama ridicule people who don't agree with him? It must be a hold-over from his old "community organizing" days and his work with ACORN and other such groups.
That wasn't the fun part unless you consider learning trivial stuff fun. Here are the fun emails I rec'd today. I know everyone eventually gets all these, but just in cast you haven't heard them yet, here goes:
Subject: Do I Understand the Health Care Plan?
Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it and whose members will be exempt from it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that is nearly broke.
What could possibly go wrong?
Cash for Clunkers worked so well, there will now be a new program called Cash for Codgers.
CASH FOR CODGERS WORKS LIKE THIS.........
Couples wishing to access health care funds in order to pay for the delivery of a child will be required to turn in one old person. The amount the government grants them will be fixed according to a sliding scale. Older and more prescription dependent codgers will garner the highest amounts.
Special "bonuses" will be paid for those submitting codgers in targeted groups, such as smokers, alcohol drinkers, persons 10 pounds over their government-prescribed weight, and any member of the Republican Party. Smaller bonuses will be given for codgers who consume beef, soda, fried foods, potato chips, lattes, whole milk, dairy products, bacon, Brussels sprouts, or Girl Scout cookies.
All codgers will be rendered totally useless via toxic injection. This will ensure that they are not secretly resold or their body parts harvested to keep other codgers in repair.
