|Good old Texas...where the tea is sweet and accents are

|Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a
speaking engagement and when his plane arrived,
there was a limousine there to transport him to his
home. As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped
and spoke to the driver.
'You know' he said, 'I am 87 years old and I have
never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it
for a while?'
The driver said, 'No problem. Have at it.'
Billy Graham gets into the driver's seat and they head
off down the highway.
A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper
operating his first speed trap.
The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph
The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo, and
he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure.
The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and
when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to
see who was driving.
He immediately excused himself and went back to his
car and called his supervisor.
He told the supervisor, 'I know we are supposed to
enforce the law.... but I also know that important
people are given certain courtesies. I need to know
what I should do because I have stopped a very
The supervisor asked, 'Is it the governor?'
The young trooper said, 'No, he's more important
The supervisor said, 'Oh, so it's the president.'
The young trooper said, 'No, he's even more
important than that.'
The supervisor finally asked, 'Well then, who is it?'
The young trooper said, 'I think it's Jesus, because
he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!'

Obama did NOT kill Bin

a few weeks earlier was
debating on whether or
not to PAY, did. It's not
an Obama victory, but

So I explained to her that my dogs are
mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can't
speak English, and have no frigging
clue who their Daddys are.
They expect me to feed them, provide
them with housing and medical care.
So she looked in her policy book to
see what it takes to qualify.

|I am a soldier.
My blood permeates the soil of many
I have gasped my last breath on many a
desolate stretch of beach. For you…all of
you, the children who play in the parks, the
mothers who watch over them, the fathers
who struggle to sustain them.
There are those here who have belittled and
reviled me, who have made a mockery of
me and what I stand for. You, also have I
suffered and died for. I withstood heat,
insects and disease so the right to dissent
would be yours.
I endured the pain and terror of battle and
the maiming of my body to ensure that you
might worship as you please. I died in
agony in order that you, no matter who or
what you are, Have the freedom to choose
your own destinies.
