time for a laugh

Skii's mom sent this to me and I thought it was funny enough to post here.....plus, I really don't have much else. So....enjoy! :)


COP COMMENTS

These 16 were taken off actual police car videos around the country:
[these are some mighty 'quick witted' cops!]

16. 'You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through.'

15. 'Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while.'

14. 'If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document.'

13. 'If you run, you'll only go to jail tired.'

12. 'Can you run faster than 1200 ft/secondbecause that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you?'

11. 'You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?'

10. 'Yes sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?'

9. 'Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket.'

8. 'The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?'

7. 'Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop.'

6. 'Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.'

5. 'In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC.'

4. 'How big were those 'two beers' you say you had?'

3. 'No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can.'

2. 'I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.'

AND THE WINNER IS....

1. 'You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't..........Sign here.' [Ouch!]

If it's good for the canadians...

This video is a documentary about one person in Ontario trying to get treatment for his illness. He ended up coming to US for help and if he hadn't, he'd probably not be here to tell his story.

Those who think a "National" health care plan is a fantastic idea, need to rethink it. I think if it was privatized, and the gov't got it's nose OUT of it, we'd be better off. The insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies wouldn't have to worry about pleasing the gov't and just worry about helping its fellow citizens.

Listen to what the gentleman has to say at the end of the video. Makes you think. And, for any Canadian out there that might read this, please feel free to give your two cents worth (either good or bad) in regards to National Health Care.






And take a look at this next one concerning the "Uninsured" in America. It's ignorant to willingly complain about this gigantic number of those without coverage and not take a closer look at just who makes up this number. The following documentary does it for you. (what can I say? I'm all about giving.)

Also, from someone who's worked in a hospital before, I know first hand that there are many programs out there that will help people with their medical bills. The hospitals make room in their budgets for those who cannot or will not pay their medical bills. Sure, they try to collect, but after a while, they just write it off. No use trying to get blood from a turnip, eh?

Oh thank heavens!

Ralph Nader is running for President.....again



Why not just wrangle up Ross Perot while we're at it?! I miss those graphs, charts, and pointer of his!

Adios, el dictador, el diablo!

If you haven't heard, Cuba's main man, Fidel, has stepped down as supreme ruler of all.....in Cuba. This must be a very sad and difficult day for those "Americans" who idolize him and his wonderful ways of ruling.

So, we bid adieu to Fidel. May you have a wonderful and peaceful retirement. (you'll need it for where you'll probably be going once you pass from this world.)

Thank G it's February!

It's amazing what kind of comments you can receive on your blog.

Some praise what you've posted, while others criticize you for it.

At times, nothing more is said other than "Hi! Thinking of ya!"

Then, there are the ones that you just can't ignore. The ones that are so profound that you can't help but to create a new post from it.

I received just such a comment today. Here's what it said: Has anyone told you it's February yet??? ;-)

Yes, if it weren't for KC and his band of Merry Sunshine Men, I would still be under the assumption that it was January and not, in fact, February.

So, thank you KC! Who knew your little comment would inspire me to post about it?!
