Indian Winter

Posted in Now That's Some Funny Shit on July 30, 2011 by The Blonde

It’s late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the winter was going to be like.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.
But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea.  He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service asked, ‘Is the coming winter going to be cold?’
‘It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,’ the meteorologist at the weather service responded.
So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.
A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. ‘Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?’
‘Yes,’ the man at National Weather Service again replied, ‘it’s going to be a very cold winter.’
The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.
Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. ‘Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?’
‘Absolutely,’ the man replied.  ‘It’s looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve ever seen.’
‘How can you be so sure?’ the chief asked.
The weatherman replied, ‘The Indians are collecting a shitload of firewood.’

Some of you may have read about this little girl already, but if you haven’t you need to read this article, and trust me it will bring a tear to your eye.  What a beautiful child, she would have been a great asset to this nasty little world that we live in these days.  Read the whole article here, it’s sad but wonderful at the same time.  MSNBC.COM

The Quote of the Decade

Posted in Political on July 26, 2011 by The Blonde

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

 — Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Well, it didn’t take long for Brett (I wanna be a whiner) Favre to start in again.  Granted they are just rumors about him coming out of retirement to possibly play for the Philadelphia Eagles, but shit, really, give it a rest already.  I wonder if he realizes what everyone thinks of him.  I would like to see him hog tied, honey poured all over him and then lay him across an ant hill in the sun in the hottest part of Texas you can find.  Fire ants would be an especially nice effect.  Maybe he would have a real reason to whine then.

You can read the articles here, if you want.  It makes me wanna puke.
