Night of the Long Knives
In Germany, Nazi leader Adolf Hitler orders a bloody purge of his own political party, assassinating hundreds of Nazis whom he believed had the potential to become political enemies in the future. The leadership of the Nazi Storm Troopers (SA), whose four million members had helped bring Hitler to power in the early 1930s, was especially targeted. Hitler feared that some of his followers had taken his early "National Socialism" propaganda too seriously and thus might compromise his plan to suppress workers’ rights in exchange for German industry making the country war-ready.—History Channel
Sorry of the lite blogging lately. I was sick a little last week and played golf all weekend. So I was too busy or sick to post that much lately. I am still here and will continue my little blogs with rants and insightful commentary of politics and news.
Also I wanted to tell you about another little adventure I got myself into. I am also posting and D=S Video Dump. Pretty much you will find a little bit of everything there. Political videos, Monty Python, and other interesting videos from Youtube. SO go over and check it out. You can also submit videos for posting. Be warned some are NSFW.
Check out my latest, The Origianl "Spam" from Monty Python.
A blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer,
decided to hire herself out as a ‘handy-woman’ and started canvassing a
nearby well-to-do neighbourhood. She went to the front door of the first
house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do. ‘Well, I
guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,’ he said, ‘How much will
you charge me?’ Delighted, the girl quickly responded, ‘How about
$250.00′ The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and
everything she would need was in the garage.
The man’s wife, hearing the conversation said to her husband, ‘Does she
realize that our porch goes ALL the way around the house?’He responded,
‘That’s a bit cynical, isn’t it?’ The wife replied, ‘You’re right. I
guess I’m starting to believe all those we’ve been
getting by e-mail lately.’ Later that day, the blonde came to the door to
collect her money.
‘You’re finished already?’ the startled husband asked. ‘Yes, the blonde
replied, and I even had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.’
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $250.00 and handed it
to her along with $10 tip. ‘And by the way, ‘ the blonde added, ‘ it’s
not a Porch, it’s a Lexus’
I know I have posted this before, but I am going to post it again.
For those that don’t know about history…… here is a condensed version.
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were:
1. The invention of beer, and
2. The invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer.
These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can we re invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to barbeque at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly barbeques and doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men.
Some note worthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth , the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu,and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys,journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals.Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer.They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers,firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives,athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively.Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today’s lesson in world history……. It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off….
This is a sad story. A puppy lab got stuck inthe tar pits of an oil refinery.
Labrador puppy dies after efforts to save her from tar-pit injuries
BY HOLLY MEYER
A Labrador puppy rescued earlier this week from a tar pit died Wednesday night.
"It’s bittersweet because I know she is in a better place," Partners4Pets volunteer Mary Parker said.
The dog, named Ashley by people helping her, was found trapped Monday in a tar pit by Roxana resident Bob Gihring after neighbors heard yelps. Workers and volunteers from Partners4Pets in Troy and Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital in Collinsville tried to remove the tar by using everything from shortening to mayonnaise, and they tried to nurse the pup back to health.—Belleville News Democrat
NEVER BRING PLANTS INTO THE HOUSE!
Garden Grass Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can
be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes.
A couple inSweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants. During a recent
cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from
a possible freeze.
It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of
the plants and when it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it
go under the sofa.
She let out a very loud scream.
The husband (who was taking a shower) ran naked into the living room to
see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa.
He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that
time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind.
He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the
His wife thought he had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to
lie still and called an ambulance.
The attendants rushed in, wouldn’t listen to his protests and loaded him
on the stretcher and started carrying him out.
About that time the snake came out from under the sofa and the
EmergencyMedical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher.
That’s when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital.
The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on
a neighbor man.
He volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up
newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone
and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief.
But while relaxing, she dangled her hand in between the cushions, where
she felt the snake wri ggling around. She screamed and fainted and the
snake rushed back under the sofa.
The neighbor man, seeing her lyin g there passed out, tried to use CPR to
The neighbor’s wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery
store, saw her husband’s mouth on the woman’s mouth and slammed her
husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him
out and cutting his scalp so that he needed stitches.
The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor
lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that he
had been bitten by the snake. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle
of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man’s throat.
By now the police had arrived.
They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a
drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the
women tried to explain how it all happened over a little green snake.
The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his
The little snake again crawled out from under the sofa.
One of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it.
He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over
and the lamp on it shattered and as the bulb broke it started a fire in the
The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the
window into the yard on top of the startled family dog who, jumped out
and raced into the street where an oncoming car swerved to avoid the dog
and smashed into the parked police car.
Meanwhile, the burning drapes were seen by the neighbors who called the
The firemen had started raising the fire truck ladder when they were
halfway down the street.
The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires and put out the electricity
and di sconnected the tel ephone s in a ten-square city block area. (But they
did get the house fire out).
Time passed and both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was
repaired, the dog came home, the police were issued a new car, and all was
right with their world.
Several days later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a
cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they
should bring in their plants for the night.
That’s when he shot her.

Mormon leader killed by mob
Joseph Smith, the founder and leader of the Mormon religion, is murdered along with his brother Hyrum when an anti-Mormon mob breaks into a jail where they are being held in Carthage, Illinois.
Born in Vermont in 1805, Smith claimed in 1823 that he had been visited by a Christian angel named Moroni who spoke to him of an ancient Hebrew text that had been lost for 1,500 years. The holy text, supposedly engraved on gold plates by a Native American historian in the fourth century, related the story of Israelite peoples who had lived in America in ancient times. During the next six years, Smith dictated an English translation of this text to his wife and other scribes, and in 1830 The Book of Mormon was published. In the same year, Smith founded the Church of Christ–later known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–in Fayette Township.—History Channel
