    An elderly gentleman of 85 feared his wife was getting hard of hearing.

    So one day he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked. The Doctor made an appointment for a hearing test in two weeks, and meanwhile there’s a simple informal test the husband could do to give the doctor some idea of the state of her problem.

    ‘Here’s what you do,” said the doctor, “start out about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears
    you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”

    That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he’s in the living room. He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.”

    Then in a normal tone he asks, ‘Honey, what’s for supper?” No response.

    So the husband moved to the other end of the room, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Honey, what’s for supper?” Still no response.

    Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, “Honey, what’s for supper?” Again he gets no response.

    So he walks up to> the kitchen door, only 10 feet away. “Honey, what’s for supper?” Again there is no response.

    So he walks right up behind her. “Honey, what’s for supper?”

    (I just love this!)

    “Damn it Earl, for the fifth time, CHICKEN!”

    Probably not realistic, given Hollywood politics, but this entire event deserves a movie - possibly a keystone cops sorta thing, but serious since at the end people die.

    I guess no matter what resources our government has, someone needs to make a decision for use and when that doesn’t happen, gather around the wagons and cover all butts all the way to the top.

    I just don’t get it - he’s preaching to the believers, so how on earth does all the expense, etc. for travel, etc. gain him converts to his plan?

    Doesn’t he have other things to do?

    On the other hand, perhaps this effort has a silver lining in that he’s not doing other things that may cause even more trouble coming our way.

    Here’s one...

    The audio is of Paul Harvey explaining how he would destroy us [America] if he were Satan…

    “If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

    And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, good day.”

    All true. Actually, Hanity can readily counter democrat talking points - he need to have some demobulbs on that are not totally stupid, even Colmes would be a good regular guest, but not every night. Most of his guest, or contributors are like preaching to the choir types - with the few demobulbs mind numbingly stupid and unable to digress from talking points. It’s just boring at this point.

    It’s so absolutely clear that the ban proposal is just a first step this time around. If the government is allowed to take away constitutional rights based on activities of a few crazy people there will be no end to what will come down the road. Driving cars and trucks, eating fatty foods, knifes, axes, chain saws, wood chippers, fists, blunt objects, etc. all kill people.

    Of course, smoking hasn’t actually been banned it’s just being taxed to death - actually a penalty not a tax when compared to the small tax on ObamaCare if one doesn’t sign up. Come to think of it - the high tax on smoking is unconstitutional since it’s really a penalty.

  • 65% See Gun Rights As Protection Against Tyranny

    unique3 to neverdem

    Below are some quotes of our Founding Fathers concerning their views of the importance of the right of Americans to keep and bear arms:

    “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
    - George Washington

    “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
    - Benjamin Franklin

    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”
    - Benjamin Franklin

    “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
    - Thomas Jefferson

    “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
    - Thomas Jefferson

    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”
    - Thomas Jefferson

    “Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense.”
    - John Adams

    “To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.”
    - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.”
    - James Madison

    “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”
    - William Pitt

    “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
    - Richard Henry Lee

    “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
    - Patrick Henry

    “... arms ... discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.... Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them.”
    - Thomas Paine

    “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
    - Samuel Adams
