aSide Order

While the economy is paramount in everyone’s mind, it’s time to get back to the basics for some guidance.  And Karl Denninger from The Market Ticker will show you exactly what that means in this video.

 

A look at life before (or without) video games.

A guy walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check. He marched straight up to the counter and said, “Hi. You know…., I just HATE drawing welfare. I’d really rather have a job.”

The social worker behind the counter said, “Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a Chauffeur and body guard for his beautiful daughter. You’ll have to drive around in his 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You’ll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say but you will also have as part of your job assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20’s and has a rather strong sex drive.”

The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, “You’re bullshittin’ me!”

The social worker said, “Yeah, well … You started it.”

And in the “you gotta be kidding” department, try this from Philadelphia. Man shot 16 times and survives.

Liberals don’t love big government because they think it’s efficient, compassionate, fair or even remotely useful. They support big government because they are guaranteed the support of nearly everyone who works for the government.

Undocumented Christians Rounded Up In Beijing

We know of the danger and threats to a country that undocumented aliens can cause. But did you know that in communist China undocumented Christian churches are too!

“I think this reflects the overall panic mood of the government leadership over what’s happening in the Middle East and north Africa,” said Bob Fu of the China Aid Association, a Texas-based group critical of China’s controls on religion, which has monitored the Shouwang Church dispute.

Is it really anything new? China has suppressed religion all along. And Tiananmen Square proved that they don’t like public displays of anything that is contrary to, or not approved by, the government.
