Election Information

According to Ambrose Bierce ~ an American Journalist,
Politics is a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles;
the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”

Hi All...thought this would help you while you think
about the elections in United States and Canada:

There's an old sea story about a ship's Captain who inspected his sailors...and afterward told the first mate that his men smelled bad. The Captain suggested, perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The first mate responded, “Aye, aye sir. I'll see to it immediately.”

The first mate went straight to the sailors' berth deck and announced, “Hey, the Captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear.”

The first mate continued: “Pitman, you change with Jones...Brown, you change with Schultz...and McCarthy, you change with Witkowski.”

(Of course, if this were currently in Canada, the orders would be: Mulcair, you change with Harper...Trudeau, you change with Mulcair...and Harper, you change with Trudeau.”)
The Moral of the Story:
Someone may come along and promise...'Change'...but don't count on things smelling any better!

Dear Airlines...
Dump the male flight Attendants! No one wanted them in the first place!
Replace all the female flight Attendants with YOUNG good-looking strippers!
The strippers would at least triple the alcohol sales and get a 'party atmosphere' going in the cabin.
And of course, every businessman in this country would start flying again, with the hope of seeing the naked women. Because of the tips, female Attendants would no longer be dependent upon their job salaries, thus saving even more money.

Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing naked women. Hijackings would come to a screeching halt...and the airline industry would see record revenues.

This is definitely a 'win-win-situation' if we handle it right ~ a golden opportunity to turn a liability into an asset, which is a big plus!

Why didn't Bush or Obama think of this?
Why do I have to do everything myself?

Comments from the Populace:
I once saw a politician walking his dog and I thought, “How absurd! ~ an animal walking an animal.”
Then I thought, “If given the choice, I'd rather vote for the dog.” (Jared Kintz)

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge over which there is no river.”
(Nikita Khrushchev)

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common...they both should be changed regularly and for the same reason.” (Anonymous)

Politicians are mostly people who'd had too little morals and ethics to stay as lawyers.”
(George R.R. Martin)

He's an honest politician ~ he stays bought!” (Robert A. Heinlein)

Three groups spend people's money:
 children...thieves...politicians. All three need supervision!”
(Dick Armey)

Charity Sunshine Tillemann-Dick suggests the following,
(to which I say, Amen!)
Perhaps we should worry less about judging people for being Mormon or Baptist or Muslim or gay or straight or black or white or Latino or by their religious or political brands...and be concerned more by electing thoughtful, serious and ethical politicians on both sides of the political isle 
who are willing to work together for progress!
