A physics teacher in high school once told the students that while one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train very much, a billion of them would. With that thought in mind, read the following, obviously written by a good American.

Good idea .... one light bulb at a time ....

LOL That thing cracks me up just looking at it.

Sheesh. What’s wrong with everyone today?

Wrong side of bed?

Stuff in their Rice Crispies?

I had several weird posts to me today as well, even from old timers.

Post on.

What do you do when a lot of the products just say ‘from Arkansas’.

As comforting as it is to buy products "Made in the USA," which I do, I often wonder where the contributing food/grain/juice products are from that are used in the production of the product.

I have refused for years to buy Tyson chicken because they employ illegals. Same goes for Smithfield hams and Paula Deen, who is their spokesperson, is off my list. There are also "made in USA" products which are managed by foreign countries or questionable characters so you have to make sure you know who you're dealing with rather than relying on a label. Just yesterday I found out a friend had bought a product on the internet which turned out to be a scam and was declared a scam by the BBB. Even though the home page had "made in the USA", everyone he spoke to was some middle easterner.

Vendome is also the name of a chain of liquor stores in the Los Angeles area. I always thought you were a swiller...

Yesterday I got a small “Greenwise” chicken, first making chicken soup from!

Same time I found in the store Peter Luger’s “Steak House Old Fashion Sauce w/no MSG. Ingr: Tomatoes, Vinegars, (Distilled Grain and Cider) Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Corn Syrup, Salt, Grated Horseradish Roots, Molasses, Water, Caramel Color, Onion, Garlic, Eschalots, Spices, Anchovies, Natural Flavor (Contains Soy) Tamarino!!

I halved the chicken in two pieces for the grill and showed the bottle to my wife, saying “see honey, no MSG.” She said you can put it on yours, but NOT on mine, unless you can eliminate the Corn Syrup/High Fructose Corn Syrup. Period. I tried it on mine and it tasted far better the the usual BBQ-sauces!!!

Same here, have a 89 Towncar and 91 Olds S/W Custom cruiser!

When people/friends complaining about the job and economic situation in general, I ask what kind of car they drive. Seven/eight out of ten says foreign cars!!

When I then tell them that they themselves have partly the answers to their complains and are part of the problems, they look at me like I’m from out of space!!!

A lot of foods, beverages & medications don’t have a “made in” label. I’d like to know where the food and drugs that my family consumes comes from.
