Where's Obama Going With This? -- State of the Union Address
We need to take responsibility for our deficit and reform our government. That’s how our people will prosper. That’s how we’ll win the future.
I’m not sure I know what he’s meaning. Changing our government? I may be stepping on toes here… but the first thing that comes to mind is more a more socialistic government. We’re already heading that direction. Another inclination I have is communism. It’s extreme, but I don’t think it’s far off. I sure hope I’m wrong
“There’s always another way, there’s always another choice… finding the BEST is the challenge”—This was a motto that originated for me and I posted it a while back, my dad added on to it with “finding the best is the challenge”.
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
This was an article written in the Oakland Independent in Oakland, NE in 1967. It, once again, reinforced my gratitude for America and all that we had. But that wasn’t what was so amazing… the man in the article was my Grandfather. He was a great man. He recently passed on December 15, but I will always remember listening to his stories. I never heard this one though and I’m sure there were many others I missed out on, but I’m thankful for the ones I did hear. I thought I’d share this one with you so you can enjoy it as well!

“Another year of life is now in the past. A new year is opening before us. What will be its record? What will we each inscribe upon its spotless pages? The manner in which we spend each passing day will decide this question.”—via David Agbessi
Bob the Announcer: “Good Morning and welcome! I hope everyone is having a great New Year’s Eve…!
Jake (aka the guy who makes everything run smoothly): (PSSSSST!!)
Bob: Umm… hold oonnn… Yep. Just wait one second.
Bob: (whispers) (…this better be good) …Yeah?
Jake: Sir, that was yesterday… Today is New Year’s DAY!
Bob: (covers microphone) YESTERDAY? As in… Friday, December THIRTY-FIRST?
Jake: (adjusts headgear) That’s correct sir.
Bob: (keeping the mic covered) $@!&%# Year!
Jake: Sir cussing won’t make the day come back, but it WILL make our ratings go down…
Bob: (places other hand over mic) That means instead of sharing a wonderful evening with my girlfriend, I spent it eating over-salted potato chips and watching this dumb crystal ball drop early in New York Ci… Ah MAAAAN! I stood my girlfriend up! I’m in the dog house now for sure! Awesome.
Jake: Sir? The show?
Bob: (as if realizing something) Oh yeah! (uncovers mic) I just received a shocking news bulletin! New Year’s EVE was yesterday! Haha… ha. I’m kidding! I was just trying to see how many people were actually AWAKE this morning and not hung over!
Bob: (mutters) Luckily “Jake” wasn’t..
Bob: (continues) Well that’s all for me! (thank goodness) Have a GREAT day and a MERRYYY New Year!
Bob: (clears throat) Umm… HAPPY New… Year.. (gives a big cheesy smile)
This wasn’t off anything, just a thought that came to my head so I typed it up and posted it… not exactly in that order. Have a great day and a MERRY New Year!
