An English professor wrote the words, "Woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly. The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing." The women wrote: "Woman: Without her, man is nothing."

Obama urged the Senate to move quickly to produce" a bipartisan plan to raise the debt ceiling." Isn't that like saying "You can have apple pie or chocolate cake, as long as it's apple pie?"

Unless, of course, they were stating that is when the RECESSION ended and the DEPRESSION began.....

While out & about today, I overheard many "average" citizens (NOT libertarians or Tea Party folk) express their anger at ALL politicians. One man said he admits that it's the fault of Americans for being so complacent for so long where the government is concerned. He said, "No more. It has to stop now!" and a woman ( a stranger to this man) replied, "It's time for a revolution."

Matthew, running a restaurant as we do we are seeing it all day with people. In fact, today we one of the news channels on the TV in the dining Room and when we do have it on that people often just glance at it. Today their eyes we glued on it non stop with the endless coverage of this DC insanity.

ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY--NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK---CAREFULLY!
With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.

This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.

This is our right to know, but the government and related departments decline to share this information with the consumers, so we must educate ourselves.

In a barcode, if the first 3 digits are:

690-692 ... then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 - 09 ... USA & CANADA
30 - 37 FRANCE
40 - 44 GERMANY
471 .... Taiwan
49 ... JAPAN
50 ... UK

Wegmans is a family-owned supermarket chain with 77 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maryland. Yesterday it was announced that they received about $750,000 from the state to expand their distribution center in PA because they will bring jobs to the local economy. Today, principals in the company have been arrested for hiring illegal immigrants. I would post a link to the story in The Morning Call, but apparently they pulled the story from their website. Your politicians and government at work.

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it.

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be!

We all know things are bad -- worse than bad -- they're crazy.

It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone."

Well, I'm not going to leave you alone.

I want you to get mad!

You've gotta say, "I'm a human being, goddammit! My life has value!"

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell,

"I'm as mad as hell,

and I'm not going to take this anymore!!"
