Aphorisms

AN APHORISM:

A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE THAT EXPRESSES A WISE, OR CLEVER OBSERVATION OR A GENERAL TRUTH.

 DSC_31511. The nicest thing about the future is…that it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog…but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don’t have a sense of humor…you probably don’t have any sense at all.

4. Seat belts are not as confining…as wheelchairs.

5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is…when you’re in deep water.

News Briefs – Nothing But the Half Truths

I am going to shock you…

  1. Politicians lie!
  2. The main stream (old media) covers for them…at least the Demoncrats.

Brief 1: July’s jobs report came out and Obama hit the stump bragging about how many private sector jobs were created that month.  Apparently we are heading in the right direction;

“That means that we’ve now created 4.5 million new jobs over the last 29 months, and 1.1 million new jobs so far this year. Those are our neighbors and family members finding work and the security that comes with work.”

I Swear On My Mother’s…

It’s an often used phrase to indicate your sincerity, word, honor about something when you swear on your mother’s grave…assuming she is dead of course.  It really is a meaningless statement for those who think nothing of lieing to achieve their goals.  Why would a sleazebag care about his mother when he has an agenda to push or a point to make.  Perhaps they consider it “poetic license” to use a loved one in such a manner.  I believe it is despicable.

Spy Catcher

The book’s inscription says “One of my gifts, January 14, 1989.”  The gift was given a year or so after Spy Catcher was first published and I found it on a shelf at the End Of The Line bookstore (a charity bookstore in a train car).  The selection is vast, but is hit or miss as far as any particular book.  I have found some rather unusual and old books.  Spy Catcher caught my eye and I thought it was a novel about the world of espionage.  Had I paid attention to the cover I would have noted that it was subtitled “The candid autobiography of a senior Intelligence Officer.”  Author Peter Wright was indeed a “spy catcher” or perhaps more accurately a spy suspecter. 

The BIG Black Lie

“I gave him the challenge that I give to all Democrats. If a Democrat can name one thing specific to Democrats that has improved the lives of black people and justified blacks voting 94% Democrat for the last five decades, then I will pay his monthly mortgage payment once for each issue on which he is right. For the record, I have made this bet with Democrats from all walks of life, including political science professors, and have yet to pay a mortgage.”

Broke

Before I get into the meat of Glenn Beck’s latest book (although I think he has since released another) I would like to thank him for the quality of the books that he releases.  Forgetting the message for a moment, Beck’s books are printed in a quality unsurpassed by others.
