Did you ever go to the market with grandma and hear her tell you to "watch the butcher so he doesn't put a finger on the scale."?
She was worried she might get ripped off.

"This folks, is why this country is big trouble!"Maybe we should ask our soldiers to "police their brass" while they are being shot at, might improve the environment.Poster-child for what is wrong in Washington , DC
You will simply not believe this. Our 8th District US Congressional representative, the Hon. Gabrielle Giffords (Democrat), in a meeting of the House Armed Services Committee, asked General David Petraeus the following question:"General Petraeus, what are you doing to reduce carbon emissions in the war on terror?"
Wow. I had to read, and re-read this several times to believe it. Folks, there are American sons and daughters dying every week on the foreign battlefields of southwest Asia . The nation is completely bankrupt and ... quite literally, borrowing 43 cents for every dollar in federal spending. We have the largest environmental disaster in the nation's history in the Gulf of Mexico , and we have Mexican drug armies invading our nation. And yet ....
A sitting member of Congress from Arizona 's 8th congressional district took the time to ask our battlefield commander what he is doing to curb carbon emissions in the war.
Gabrielle Giffords is the poster-child for what is wrong with the US Congress. We are being led by imbeciles. To the rest of America reading this blog, and to Gen. Petraeus if this e-mail makes it to your inbox ... my sincerest apologies for the stupid question asked of you by my US congressional representative.
General ... I am sure you have better things to worry about than carbon emissions on the battlefield. I assure you, as a registered voter in Arizona 's 8th congressional district, I will do everything I can to ensure Rep. Giffords is voted out of office in November, and I pray you'll get back to business of fighting the war on terror without worrying about such petty and nonsensical matters as your carbon footprint in the war.

Tucson, ArizonaFYI: The 8th District surrounds Tucson to the north, south and east ( Tucson is in the 7th District) and covers the south-east corner of AZ.
What Google says about Rep. Giffords:Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Az) took Afghan Commander, General David Petraeus, to task for what she characterized as willful disregard of the environmental impact of our war effort. There is no policy, no plan to minimize carbon emissions in our military activities, Giffords charged. Bombs are dropped and bullets are fired without considering the environmental impact. Giffords insisted that she was not demanding an immediate halt to current military operations in the Middle East, "I'm just saying battle plans should include an environmental impact assessment as a regular part of the process before attacks are launched."
She also suggested that the Army put more emphasis on less environmentally damaging methods, like stabbing or clubbing enemy forces in order to minimize the carbon output.
New Rules of Engagement:I think we ought to put her on the front lines so she can stab or club the enemy. God help us if this is the type of idiots that are continuously elected to office. Walk softly and carry a big knife or big stick to save the environment.
ps. Al Gore is a dick.

According to The Trustees for the Social Security Administration,
" THERE WILL NOT BE A COST OF LIVING INCREASE FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS IN SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS.
They, the Congress (BOTH "REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS TOGETHER") say no increase is warranted because of the lossesin gross national product and other cute things..
NOW SPORTS FANSTHIS IS THE ONE THAT WILL FLIP YOU OUT!!
Keep ReadingTHE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION IS FUNDING TWENTY-FOUR MILLION DOLLARS-- LET ME REPEAT THAT AMOUNT...SO YOU UNDERSTAND IT $ 24,000,000.00 DOLLARS FOR NEW ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS PROCESSING FOR OUR CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS !!
THEY ARE OBTAINING THESE FUNDSAndI QUOTE DIRECTLY FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY WEBSITE...
"THIS MONEY WILL BE COMING FROM THE SAVINGS TO BE GENERATEDFROM WITHHOLDING "COST OF LIVING INCREASES FOR 2010 & 2011In SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FOR THE ELDERLYAND A $2.00 INCREASE ON ALL MEDICARE RX BENEFIT CO-PAY"
Please pass this to ALL your friends and have them"PROTEST TO THE IDIOTS WE ELECTED TO CONGRESS"Who by the way, have just voted themselves ANOTHER 3% SALARY INCREASE!!!
We must put a stop to this outright thievery!It is THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE, BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS,WE CAN'T FIRE THEM, BUT WE SURE CAN NOT RE-ELECT THEM,And WE CAN IMPEACH THEMOr DEMAND RECALL ELECTIONS !!!HOW ABOUT WE ALL GET TOGETHER AND DUMP THESE CLOWNS.
All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here..
The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt.And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties.
I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy,But,As a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunchTo ever disgrace our Nation.In November of 2010The entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election;All 435 of them.One third of the Senate,A total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.Vote every incumbent out.
And I mean every one of them.No matter their Party affiliation.Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 peopleWho have absolutely no experience in running that body,With no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents.Let's make them understand that they work for us...
They are answerable to usAnd they simply have to run that body with some common sense.. Two years later, in 2012,Vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.
We can do the same thing in 2014 and,By that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.
We, the People,Have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully.
That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.
I am also suggesting term limits on the NEW BUNCH8 YEARS FOR REPRESENTATIVES AND 12 YEARS FOR SENATORS.NO EXCEPTIONS.THE LONGER THEY STAY IN OFFICE THE MORE POWER THEY GETAND THEY LOVE IT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET RE-ELECTED.
WE HAVE TERM LIMITED THE PRESIDENT -NOW LET'S TERM LIMIT THE LEGISLATORS..
