Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered. Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.
The first said, “I had a big house built for Mama.”
The second said, “I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house.”
The third said, “I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her.”
The fourth said, “You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can’t read anymore because she can’t see very well.
I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it.”
The other brothers were impressed. After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes.
She wrote: “Milton, the house you built is so huge I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway.”
“Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home and I have my groceries delivered, so never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks.”
“Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I’ve lost my hearing and I’m nearly blind. I’ll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same.”
“Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you.”
WHAT IS AN INFIDEL?
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.
The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you have a purpose. The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races!!
Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.
After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: ‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’
I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’
He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’ I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’
The Muslim was speechless!
I continued, ‘I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President!
I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference…
They say if you email this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along?
Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue
I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!
STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters….. S T. R.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ….she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR. Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
History is not made the way our news media and politicos write it!
This is what the Navy Seal team looked like when they went in to get Bin Laden.
A couple of things to notice:
50 caliber sniper on the right.
Knee, knuckle and forearm protection.
Various plastic/wire ties.
Absolute identity denial to protect their families.
Free choice of footwear.
Fourth from the right has three artillery simulators and CS gas grenades on his belly. He’s the ‘shock and awe’ guy.
Group Photo of Seal Team Six, . . . . . . and you can imagine the look on Bin Laden’s face when these guys came through
Let’s be clear on this:
OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American sailor, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did.
In fact, if you remember a little less than two years ago his administration actually charged and attempted to court-martial 3 Navy Seals from Seal Team Six, when a terrorist suspect they captured, complained they had punched him during the take down and bloodied his nose. His administration further commented how brutal they were. The left were calling them Nazi’s and Baby Killers. Now all of a sudden the very brave men they vilified, are now heroes when they make his administration look good in the eyes of the public. Obama just happened to be the one in office when the CIA finally found the guy and our sailors took him out.
Essentially, Obama only gave an answer. Yes or No, to him being taken out.
This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!! Share IF YOU AGREE!!
Response Time in El Paso, Texas-PRICELESS
Three armed felons crossed the U. S . border and attempted to rob an off-duty El Paso police officer dressed in civilian clothes while he stood in front of a bank.
The plan was for two of them to grab his backpack and pass it to the accomplice on a stolen motorcycle.
However, the well prepared police officer shot all of them, killing two immediately. The third was shot in both arms and bled to death before the ambulance arrived.
This is how much the U. S. Taxpayer would have had to pay to prosecute these thugs:
Arrest and detention for 1 night = $6,000
Transportation for deportation back to Mexico the next day = $1000
Air time for Obama to apologize in 30 min speech $25,007,000
What it actually cost:
Four .40 rounds = $1.00
Taxpayer savings = $25,006,999.00
They Picked The Wrong Man to Rob – Only in TEXAS!
THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL I S
THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .40 S&W ROUND IS ABOUT 1225 FEET PER SECOND .
I LOVE TO READ THESE STORIES WITH SUCH BEAUTIFUL ENDING.
The message from the unelected bureaucrats at Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to American workers couldn’t be more clear: sit down and shut up.
Last week three Boeing employees, with free legal aid from Foundation staff attorneys, filed a motion to intervene in the NLRB’s outrageous case against Boeing for creating thousands of new jobs in Right to Work South Carolina rather than forced-unionism Washington State.
At the urging of the NLRB’s Acting General Counsel, an administrative law judge has denied their motion to intervene — effectively telling the workers, “You have no stake in your jobs.“
Incredibly, even though the Acting General Counsel is seeking to force Boeing to move over 1,000 jobs from South Carolina, the administrative law judge ruled that the Boeing workers who would lose their jobs have no “legitimate direct interest” in the outcome of the case.
Foundation attorneys have already appealed with the full NLRB and filed a motion with the judge to stay proceedings until the Board rules on the appeal.
But rest assured, even if the Obama appointees stonewall on these requests, your Foundation will not relent.
We will pursue every opportunity in the press and the legal process to expose this case for what it is: the latest outrageous example of political payback by the Obama Administration to the Big Labor bosses who spent hundreds of millions of dollars in 2008 getting Obama elected.
“This is our Wisconsin,” one IAM union official told the press, inadvertently revealing it’s once again all about Big Labor’s lust for forced dues.
Government-sector union bosses threw a tantrum in Wisconsin after Governor Scott Walker pushed for and ultimately signed a Right to Work law for most government workers, cutting off the forced-dues pipeline that corrupts the political process.
But due to South Carolina’s popular and longstanding Right to Work law, IAM union brass can’t seize a dime from the Boeing workers in Charleston.
That’s why the IAM union hierarchy is asking the NLRB to move those jobs 3,000 miles away to Washington State.
And if that’s not bad enough, if the NLRB rubber stamps this despicable union-boss greed, job providers across the country could be forced to get approval from union bosses before they expand their businesses.
It’s a blatant attack on the rights of workers and businesses alike.
And as the economy continues to struggle, it’s the last thing we need.
“If I lose my job, my family will be devastated,” explained Dennis Murray, one of the Boeing workers seeking to intervene.
But Big Labor and the Obama Administration don’t want Murray and other Boeing workers to tell their story.
That’s why your continued support is so critical.
By chipping in with a tax-deductible contribution of $10 or more, you’ll help the Foundation stand up to the forced-unionism bullies at Big Labor and in the Obama Administration.
These Boeing workers deserve to be heard. And your Foundation will not stop until they are.
P.S. The Foundation relies completely on voluntary contributions from its supporters to provide free legal aid.
Please chip in with a tax-deductible contribution of $10 or more today to support the Foundation’s programs.
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by compulsory unionism abuses. The Foundation, which can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-336-3600, is assisting thousands of employees in nearly 200 cases nationwide. The Foundation’s mailing address is 8001 Braddock Road, Springfield, Virginia 22160. Its web address is www.nrtw.org/.
