  4. That video is priceless and too funny~

    You have a fun and safe holiday weekend!

    1. Liz,
      It may be the Paperless Age, but you couldn't tell that from the way my home office looks!

    2. Exactly. Just look at our judicial system. They are laden with paperwork, as is our schools, our Social Security Office, and as is The Department of Human Services. We are not the paperless society or age that is being purported. Just another lie from mainstemerers that have nothing better do with their time than to make up "paperless lies!"

  5. We've been gone all day on the motorcycle, seeing part of this beautiful State of Tennessee with friends. Great weather, good food, good friends. I haven't had time to even think about the holiday.

    Hubby and I always celebrate our anniversary on Labor Day weekend (September 2). 41 years this year.

    Right Truth

    1. Debbie,
      Mr. AOW and I celebrated our 41st anniversary on June 17.


    "Nick Vujicic, a well-known motivational speaker and evangelist born without arms or legs, got married last year."

    I thought it would be sad and filled with a crying need for "empathy," but instead it made ME to feel much better about my own prospects -- and more grateful for all the many good things I have and have had. This man -- born with out LIMBS -- is a fine, fully developed, charming, attractive individual with a sunny disposition who OUGHT to be an inspiration to everyone who has ever for an instant been tempted to feel sorry for himself.

    I do have to say, however, that putting a commercial beginning with the words "Do you suffer from ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION? in front of this particular video has to be the height -- or the depth -- of bad taste and absurdly poor judgment.

    If Nick is aware of it, however, I'm sure he just thinks it's a hoot, He and his bride are expecting their first child, so obviously Nick has no problems there. Nevertheless "somebody" in the ad business ought to have his friggin head examined.

    1. FT,
      You have singled out one of the most uplifting stories on the list.

      It's wonderful that at least one blogger takes the time to post some good news. I, for one, have grown weary of doom and gloom all the time.

  7. Thanks for lifting the spirits of an old man who sometimes gets lost in a disfunctional world.

  8. ________ PRIMARY SOURCES ________

    Look well upon the men who dig in mines,
    And work machines in mills and factories grim.
    Be aware that those who tend the vines
    Or till the soil give much for wages slim.
    Reaping sowing, weeding, hoeing make
    Full the nation’s store of nutriment.
    Overland the burly truckers take
    Rich provisions and accoutrement
    Coast to coast. The teamsters load and haul
    Enormous hordes of stuff that we’ve empowered,
    Shipped in freighters, stored in silos tall,
    Delivered, well-displayed, and then devoured.
    Awards are due the goods and who supplies them,
    Yet the wise despise the guys who advertise them.

    ~ FreeThinke - The Sandpiper, Summer, 1996

  9. Too funny. Even in the computer age my office is full of paper. We're getting better, but we're more like 'Poor Emma' than not.

  11. What would Martin Luther King say about a president who is as inept as Obama?
    I think that he would be Embarrassed by this president.
    Obama and his administration have become the real racists in our society. MLK would not have approved of this, I’m sure.
    Sr King would turn his back on the likes of Obama, Jackson,
    and the clown Al Sharpton.
    King was a good man. Oh he had his faults…just like JFK he was a womanizer. But as for blacks and the country as a whole, his heart was in the right place.

    This president as well as the left entirely has been exposed for what they really are.
    Did you see any placards or any demonstrations saying that Hillary Clinton and John Kerry voted for the war? Or that Obama IS a Warmonger.

    This president expands the Patriot Act and spies on email and phone call data...no sweat, liberal either cheer, or they are silent.
    You liberals will find every excuse in the book to justify him being there
    And Guantanamo? When's the last time you heard about that?

    Everyone have a safe weekend. As for me, I'm going to try to forget the mess we are in for this Labor day weekend. At least I have a full time job - for the time being.

  12. Here is a question that I am waiting for someone in congress to ask. Obama has stated that he will not try to remove Assad by force. He has also said we will not attack the chemical weapons themselves.
    Okay, we bomb something for a couple of days, Assad stays alive and in power and then, when the ships leave, he hits the civilians with the chemicals again. What then? This is what I do not understand. That and why in the hell did we tell him that, and why did we tell him the day we were planning to strike and the duration of the attack. Revealing information like that will usually get you put in front of a firing squad.

    Secondly, since we strike him but left him alive and in power, what's to keep him from giving some of those weapons to terrorists to explode in an American city? This is the price we pay for weakness, this is the price we and the whole world are paying for Barak Obama.
    He's bragged about how he doesn't need Congress for anything, that he can rule thru EOs, and he picks the one area where he has absolute discretion to decide to consult with Congress. I hope they don't fall for his head fake. In the wee small hours of the night like he did with everything else that the public was opposed too.
    And if Obama does elect to go ahead with this silliness of his we should be loud and clear and we should call it "THE ILL CONSIDERED LIBERALS WAR". So now we have a super leftist/progressive nut-job in the Oval office and if left alone he would have bombed Syria, because Syria was bombing the Muslim Brotherhood revolutionaries who were bombing civilians. I just dońt believe any so called evidence about Assad gassing his own people, because those making the charges are worse than Assad. Sending Long Face out there to spread your rumors isńt the smartest thing to do. His past is rife with lies.
    Israel will face retaliation if we bomb as well, but what the heck........ the way he figures it, it́s only Israel. This time zippy, unlike Bush, really is trying to go it alone. Plus, I dońt know why anyone would believe anything that this administration says. This is the perfect time for the Republicans to say to the dems and the WH, "You told the world that Bush lied about Saddaḿs WMD́s, so why should WE believe YOU now? Get involved in Syriás civil war? He!! no! Oh, and by the way, where exactly did Assad get his WMD́s? Could they have been the missing WMD́s that couldn’t be found in Iraq?
    And has anyone noticed that the pressure is off of IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate and AP-gate etc, etc, and etc!

  13. Should Liberals be allowed to celebrate Labor Day?
    What Liberals Need to Understand is that you need to work before you can celebrate labor day

  14. By the way, I almost fell off the chair watching obumble turn John Kerry into his court jester when he was being interviewed by Chris Wallace.

  15. _______ In Praise of Those Who Work________

    May God bless the practical women and men,
    Who rise from the hay every day, and then 
    Produce what we need 
    Without rancor or greed, 
    Make things run, 
    Get things done, 
    Keep things clean, 
    So they're fit to be seen, 
    And continuously smooth the way, 
    So that we may live comfortably every day.

    ~ FreeThinke

  16. Labor Day is a day to salute the Working Man and Women, all other need not apply. Trust me, I have dealt with people that have been on government support for many years. These people don't gravitate toward independence, competition, and a loyalty to community. If you take away their EBT card (Electronic Benefit Transfer) otherwise known as Moocher card), they will mooch off friends, and realities, beg, steal, or live on less. Take away child support and they will dump their kids on friends, relatives, or just on the streets. Many of these people are completely irresponsible.Because that is how they've been conditioned to be from generation to generation. I suspect that since the time these people were children, they have been failures and regardless of what you do, they will continue to be. For these people, social welfare programs just keep them from being a bigger problem for society, like Travon Martin was headed for.WTF is wrong with these people??.

  17. lol saw this AOW and luved it!..hope u had a great holiday :)
