Best blonde joke you’ll ever read!

 

Best blonde joke you’ll ever read!

Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family ranch. Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble..

In order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock.

Upon leaving, the brunette tells her sister, ‘When I get there, if I decide to buy the bull, I’ll contact you to drive out after me and haul it home.’

The brunette arrives at the man’s ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she wants to buy it.

The man tells her that he will sell it for $599, no less.

After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram to tell her the news.

She walks into the telegraph office, and says, ‘I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I’ve bought a bull for our ranch.

I need her to hitch the trailer to our pickup truck and drive out here so we can haul it home.’

The telegraph operator explains that he’ll be glad to help her, then adds, it will cost 99 cents a word.

Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette realizes that she only has enough money to be able to send her sister one word.

After a few minutes of thinking, she nods and says, ‘I want you to send her the word ‘comfortable.’

The operator shakes his head. ‘How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to haul that bull back to your ranch if you send her just the word’comfortable?’

The brunette explains, ‘My sister’s blonde. The word is big.

She’ll read it very slowly… ‘com-for-da-bul.’

Meeting Cancelled?

 

 

LORETTA,

Unbelievable.

Kent Conrad, who chairs the Senate Budget Committee, said last year:

“History is going to judge whether we have the courage, character, and vision to stand up for America’s future. Those who take a walk, those who turn away, those who don’t have the gumption to stand up, are going to be judged very, very harshly.”

He’s singing a different tune this year.

Yesterday he announced Democrats won’t — for the third year in a row — offer a formal budget, in clear violation of federal law.

Have you ever heard of such a thing?

Many Democrats didn’t even bother to show up to the meeting. The empty seats shown are where Senate Democrats would have been sitting, if they cared at all about America’s future.

Senators are paid over $160,000 a year. And Democrats can’t even be bothered to do the most basic thing we pay them to do — passing a federal budget.

It’s time to judge Kent Conrad — and the rest of the Democrat Senate — “very, very, harshly.”

It’s time to stop the games and restore control. We need a Senate we can be proud of. A Senate that will stand up for America’s future and won’t take a pass on difficult issues.

Help us do that today. Sign our petition demanding Senate Democrats stop playing games and propose a budget.

And thanks again for everything you have done.

Valero Memo to Employees

 

 

For those of you unfamiliar with Valero, it is an independent oil company based in San Antonio , TX . It owns 2 refineries, but no oil fields – it buys all the oil it refines and processes via contract or on the open market. Its origin was as a public utility providing natural gas to the city of San Antonio , but it has grown to be a significant gasoline retailer in a good portion of the southeast and southwest, as well as a purveyor of natural gas.

It is a significant economic force in Texas , even in light of the other majors (Shell, Exxon Mobil, etc.) based in the state. This memo to employees is a realistic insight into the economic importance of the proposed XL pipeline.

Date: January 24, 2012



To: Valero Employees

From: Bill Klesse

Subject: Keystone XL Pipeline Statement

As you know, the Obama administration decided last week to deny TransCanada’s application to ship crude oil via the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast . Valero has planned to be a shipper and purchaser of that oil since 2008, and obviously we were disappointed in the decision. We issued a statement in response to questions from the media, and I wanted to share it with you in case you get questions from friends or business partners, and so that you would know why Valero supports the Keystone XL pipeline. This is the statement:

Despite the uncertainty and political fighting over the Keystone XL pipeline, Valero has continued to invest in its U.S. refining operation. In 2011 we spent nearly $3 billion on projects, and for 2012 our capital expenditure budget is over $3 billion. These expenditures are keeping our employees on the job and putting additional people to work. To reference two of our refineries, at Port Arthur , Texas , we have 1,600 contractors working on an expansion project, and at St. Charles Parish, Louisiana , we have another 1,000 contractors working on a separate project. We need this kind of economic activity to accelerate to help all Americans.

This illustrates why President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline is so absurd. There are pipelines in every neighborhood all across America . The administration’s decision was not about pipelines, it was about the misguided beliefs that Canadian oil sands development should be stopped and that fossil fuel prices should increase to make alternative energy more attractive. Instead, we should be impressed with how well the oil sands engineering and recovery technology has advanced, and the economic benefits this development brings. Having more oil available in the marketplace has the potential to lower prices for consumers. As an independent refiner, Valero buys all of the oil we process. Due to the administrations misguided policies, refiners like Valero will have to buy more oil from other sources outside the U.S. and Canada . Consumers will bear the additional shipping cost, not to mention the additional greenhouse gas emissions and political risks.

With all the issues facing our country, it is absolutely unbelievable our federal government says no to a company like TransCanada that is willing to spend over $7 billion and put Americans to work on a pipeline. The administrations decision throws dirt into the face of our closest ally and largest trading partner.

The point above is that it is not about pipelines as many pipelines cross the Ogallala Aquifer, in the Great Plains region, and, in fact, there is already significant oil and gas production in the area covered by the aquifer. This is politics at its worst.

Thank you for your support.

Shocking News from ABCs Diane Sawyer

—–

Absolutely disgusting!! Thanks Obama!!! (and state of CA)


Obviously not cleared with the White House – Shocking news from (main stream media) Diane Sawyer with ABC News.

Click on the video near the end of message: U.S.Bridges, Roads Being Built by Chinese Firms. This is unbelievable. Another way to destroy capitalism in the USA. The ones in charge seem to have a huge play book to destroy America as we know it and they just trot more stuff out each day.

Diane Sawyer reporting on U.S. bridge projects going to the Chinese…. NOT Americans.
The bridges are right here in the U.S. and yet Obama has approved for Chinese contractors to come in and do the work. What about jobs for Americans???
Watch this short video as it explains what’s happening.
This one should be tough for the supporters of the current regime to swallow….AND it comes from ABC NEWS…no Snopes or Wikileaks on this one!!
U.S.A. Bridges and Roads Being Built by Chinese Firms. Shocking to say the least! This video is a jaw-dropper that will make you sick. (It was also shocking that ABC was actually reporting this story.)
The lead-in with Obama promising jobs in the U.S. by improving our infrastructure is so typical of all his promises! Our tax dollars are at work – for CHINA!!!
I pray all the unemployed see this and cast their votes accordingly in 2012!

I-95 & I-75 Gridlock


 

 


I AGREE!! I HAD TO PASS THE TEST TO GET THE $7.50 CENT JOB WHEN I RETIRED.

Sounds good to me!

Only 49 more states to go!!!!!!!
Hooray for Florida!
I-95 and I-75 will be jammed for the next month or so with druggies and deadbeats heading North out of Florida, because this is the first state in the union to require drug testing to receive welfare!

Hooray for Florida! In signing the new law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott said, “If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free”.
Applicants must pay for the drug test, but are reimbursed if they test drug-free.

Applicants who test positive for illicit substances won’t be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment.

Those who fail a second time will be banned from receiving funds for three years!

Naturally, a few people are crying this is unconstitutional.
How is this unconstitutional? It’s a legal requirement that every person applying for a JOB has to pass drug tests in order to get the JOB, why not those who receive welfare?

Forward this if you agree!

Let’s get welfare back to the ones who NEED it, not to those who WON’T get a JOB.
I AGREE, DO YOU?
