Don’t Pay for me (Joke)

A little child in church for the first time watched as the
ushers passed the offering plates.

When they neared the pew where he sat, the youngster piped up
so that everyone could hear; “Don’t pay for me Daddy, I’m
under five.”

Our Country was Founded on the Belief in Personal Freedom

Our country wasn’t founded on socialist ideals.

Unlike Europe, we believe in individual freedom and freedom of choice. Our ancestors all migrated so they could practice not only religious freedom but freedom of choice in all areas of their life.

We as a country, or at one time we  believed in individual responsibility.

More and more people are losing the concept of this and more and more are letting the government make all of their life decisions.  Why would a normal thinking human being allow that to happen? This is the same government that couldn’t organize a two-car funeral.

No one can determine what is best for you, but yourself.  It would be bad enough if elected officials were determining our fate, but we are now beginning to have unelected bureaucrats in Washington run our lives.

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

When it comes to healthcare the bureaucrats are deciding what is best for us instead of our doctor or ourselves.

When the government finally totally takes over our health care system, they will control one-sixth of our lives. Just with that one action alone. Is that what we really want?

We Americans are headed down a dangerous slope. The only way off the decline is for us to once again take control of our lives.

When it comes to health care, in many instances, we can heal ourselves. There are many natural cures that should and can be tried before resorting to unnatural and unhealthy prescription drugs. Because of the adverse side effects, both known and unknown, they should be avoided like the plague, if at all possible.

Proper diet and exercise would go a long way to prolonging our life. In today’s world, it is often difficult to find good nutritious food. Our soils have in many cases, the soil has been depleted and food processing takes many of the vitamins and nutrients out of our food supply.

Our only recourse it to take good vitamin and mineral supplements to replace the nutrients no longer available to us in our food supply.

If something is broken, like a leg, go to the doctor and get it fixed, for many other diseases, the are better alternatives than prescription medicine.

From what I have seen and heard, socialized medicine isn’t why Europeans are living longer if indeed they are.

Most countries with socialized medicine see long waiting lists for service and medicine, and that is already beginning to  happen in America.

In the final analysis, I don’t want the government to run my life, maybe you do. If you do there are plenty of countries where you can make that happen, it doesn’t need to be a reality in the United States.

If someone screws up my life, I want it to be me , not some bureaucrat in a far off office cubicle. I kind of like freedom, that’s why my ancestors moved here.

That’s a choice each individual needs to make for themselves.

Father's Day 2016

Women Are Better At Estate Planning

Women are better at ESTATE PLANNING

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

He toiled at it for years, until finally his father was on his deathbed — Dan would inherit a fortune! He decided he needed a wife with which to share the vast estate.

One evening at an investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Her natural beauty took his breath away. “I may look like just an ordinary man,” he said to her, “but in just a few weeks, my father will die, and I’ll inherit 100 million dollars.”

Impressed, the woman accepted his business card. And just three short days later, she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at estate planning than men.

The Improvising Nuns

A couple of nuns, who worked as nurses, had gone out to the country to minister to an outpatient. On the way back home they ran out of gas. They were standing beside their car on the shoulder when a truck approached.

Seeing ladies of the cloth in distress, the driver stopped to offer his help. The nuns explained they needed some gas.

The driver of the truck said he would gladly drain some from his tank but he didn’t have a bucket or can. One of the nuns dug out a clean bedpan and asked the driver if he could use it. He said yes, and proceeded to drain a couple of quarts of gas into the pan. He waved goodbye to the nuns and left.

The nuns were carefully pouring the precious fluid into their gas tank when a highway patrol officer arrived.
The trooper stopped and watched for a moment, then he said, “Sisters, I don’t think it will work, but I sure do admire
your faith!”

How I Used Thieves From Young Living To Save My Teeth and Gums

 

Several years ago I suffered a broken tooth crown a few days before we were scheduled to embark on a cruise.  The broken crown came about on a Thursday evening and we were leaving on Monday, there wasn’t much time to have the tooth extracted before we left.

To compound the situation, I hadn’t been to  a dentist in years and consequently had no dentist where I was currently residing.

Since retiring from my lifelong profession as a parcel redistribution specialist, I no longer had dental insurance. I had gone to the dentist faithfully for several years, but since there was never a problem I had quit going.

Luckily, I was able to get in to see a dentist the next morning and during the examination, it was revealed I had periodontal disease, several of my teeth were loose and my gums were in serious need of repair.

The next step was to see a periodontist who wanted to do an $8,000  surgery to repair my gums, and  there was no guarantee the problem would resolve itself. It didn’t seem like a good option to me. The other option was to have all my teeth removed and replace with dentures. 

I didn’t like that option either.

I began doing what I should have been doing all along, flossing and brushing twice a day. I also bought a water pic and used it twice a day.

That helped a lot, but didn’t really heal my gums, it only delayed the inevitable.

Shortly after that I was introduced to Young Living and their super product , Thieves.

Thieves is a miracle oil that can alleviate many medical issues.

Thieves is composed of oils the thieves used to rob dead people during the European plague centuries ago. The oils protected them from the diseases of the day so they could carry out their dastardly deeds.

I began using the oil, putting a few drops of it in my water pic and filling it with water. I also started using the Thieves toothpaste, within a short period of time, my gums healed and my teeth were no longer loose.

Will it last forever? Will I  ever need to replace my teeth with dentures? I don’t know, but it has been eight years and so far so good. 

I have preserved my teeth for eight years that I would have lost years ago and saved eight thousand dollars and the expense of having all my teeth extracted.

The total bill would have been over twenty thousand dollars, I’ll take that gamble any day of the week.

The birthplace of UPS

In a way UPS is an Amerian dream and exemplifies the America way. It demonstrates how anyone even those coming from humble beginnings can achieve anything they desire, as long as they have the will and the ability. UPS grew with America, coming on the scene at the beginning of the industrial revolution, it was a beneficiary as well as a contributor to America’s success. Neither would have survived without the other.

UPS needed a capitalistic, free enterprise market to survive and America needed a reliable and dependable delivery system to enable it to move products from one location to another in a timely manner.
