House conservatives on Thursday blocked passage of a relatively uncontroversial energy and water spending measure after Democrats attached an amendment that would bar federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

The appropriations bill failed with many Republicans opposed because of the gay rights provision, which would have the effect of enacting into law a 2014 executive order by President Barack Obama.

A similar amendment caused disarray on the House floor last week when Democrats tried to attach it to a Veterans Affairs appropriations bill.

The appropriations bill failed 305-112, with many Republicans opposed because of the gay rights provision.

The Not-So-Dumb Coworker

I came in to work early the other day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my co-workers came in and asked me what I'm doing.

"Shh," I said, " I'm a light bulb -- I'm acting crazy to get a few days off, as there is an out of town wedding I need to go to until Tuesday."

A minute later the boss walked by and asked me what I was doing.

"I'm a light bulb!" I exclaimed.

"You're going crazy," he said. "Take a few days off, and come back when you are less stressed."

With that, I jumped down and started walking out. My co-worker started following me and the boss asked where she was going.

"I can't work in the dark," she said.

Received from Thomas Ellsworth.

Havaii

As Morris and his wife, Sherry, were planning a vacation, they ended up in an argument, "It's 'Hawaii', I'm telling you!"

Sherry said. "I never KNEW someone so stubborn! 'Havaii' is how it's pronounced!" he replied. And so it went all the way to the vacation... As they got off the airplane, they passed a man.

Morris abruptly stopped the wife and turned to the man to ask, "Now that we're on the island, you can settle an argument between my wife and me. Is this 'Hawaii' or 'Havaii'?"

"This is Havaii," the man replied. "Ha!" the husband gloated to his wife. "See, didn't I tell you never to argue with me?"

As they began to walk away, Morris turned back and gave the man a hearty, "Thank you!"

"You're velcome!" he called back.

You have to focus on the right problems.

These are the crucial leverage points that, once solved, clear the way for other situations to quickly improve. Our best business leaders understand this, but few in the political world do.

In The Right Problems, Herman Cain discusses the nine crucial problems that must be the focus of the next president and every member of Congress. He also offers solutions and a discussion about what has kept these issues from getting the attention they deserve, as well as a look at the kind of leadership we’ll need from the next president in order to make this happen.

Johnny's Teacher

Johnny's teacher paid a visit to his house one day. When little Johnny opened the door, she asked "Are your father and mother in, Mr. Morton?"

"They was in, but they is out now," he answered.

The teacher gasped, "Why, Mr. Johnny Morton, it is 'They were in, but they are out now.' Where's your grammar?"

"She's upstairs taking her nap."

Introduction
You have never lost until you agree that you are defeated.

Who am I?
Over time I have built a world-view, like constructing a map of the cosmos, and from this, essentially everything is understandable and anything is possible. The most important things that I have learned have been self-taught by picking up on or asking myself good, clear, penetrating questions to expose and articulate the hidden structures that underlie the experience of living.

It’s a complex world, and I believe we each should develop the facility to interact in a wide variety of ways. If something really interests me I have an incredible ability to stick with it — even though I have a larger perspective, I can be very focused and zero in on a point. I have always seen the world at many levels.

I’m always interested in developing expertise in new areas. I tend to be someone who looks at all the what-ifs, anticipating all possible scenarios and their likelihood: I rarely have just a 'plan A'. Once people comprehend the significance of what I am explaining to them, they usually also recognize its importance. The problem is that it may be ten years before they realize that I am right -- ten lost years which could have been productive.

Autonomy is important, to be respected for my own thoughts and feelings, ideas and creativity. It is frustrating when people simply dismiss a concept without trying to understand or worse when they actually fight against progress because doing the best thing for everyone would mean they collected less money than they could get otherwise. Greed is a very ugly abuser. Still, I never really think of others as 'too stupid to understand': only that I have somehow still not explained in a way that they can grasp, although sometimes I must concede that they simply don't want to understand. I am instinctively tolerant but the one thing I cannot stand is people who just don't care: about the quality of their own work or their effect on others' lives.

I am naturally organized, structured, and analytical. If a project enters my mind it immediately assumes the form of its pieces, its basic structure, and what sequence of events is required to get it done. This isn’t something I do: it happens instantaneously without effort. Issues are multifaceted and I try to think from different perspectives, not only my perspectives but others’ too. I’ve found it’s good to gather as many facts as I can. Sometimes there is a piece that needs to be thrown out, or maybe it’s the seed of another project.

My analytical instinct also makes me coolheaded even under extreme circumstances: when others loose their head in a disaster, or become trapped in placing blame, I am already working out solutions. If a shooter walked into my classroom and shot me in the heart, I would still act, knowing that I had about 6-8 seconds to stop him from harming anyone else before my body quit working.

I won’t do something if I feel I can’t do it well.
