Random Thoughts for July 2019
By Robert A. Hall
Feel free to post or forward.
There is a difference between tenacity and being a damn fool. The trick is to know where the line is.
People who always “live in the day,” have miserable tomorrows.
A Progressive is always willing to make the poor suffer a lot if he can make the rich suffer a little as part of the deal. He calls it “fairness.”
Socialism is the morality of the hive.
“I never heard any other reason for the quarrel then slavery.” –Confederate General James Longstreet speaking of the Civil War.
The progressive plan to deal with overwhelming flood of illegal immigrants is to use taxes, regulations and socialism to turn American into a third-world hellhole where no one will want to come.
Quote from a vet at the VA: My old man said, ‘If you blister your ass, you’re the one who has to sit on it.’
"When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary." –Thomas Paine, Common Sense
We bought “Picky No More” dog food. They must have tested it on starving strays, because our mutt isn’t much interested.
If people could read my thoughts, they’d throw a net over me. Probably applies to you, too.
Don’t expect miracles from me. I can’t even make my dog heel.
Some people think they can slide through on the “Cliff’s Notes” version of life.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." ~President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
It’s scary that someday our grandkids will look back on these times as “The good old days.”
Facebook meme: Two plantation owners talking. “It’s okay to enslave blacks. They aren’t really people.” Two Nazi officers talking. “It’s okay to kill Jews. They aren’t really people.” Two planned parenthood supporters talking. “It’s okay to kill unborn babies. They aren’t really people.”
"No people ever lost their liberties unless they themselves first became corrupt. The people are the safeguards of their own liberties, and I rely wholly on them to guard themselves." --Andrew Jackson
Progressives are people who look down on the people on whose shoulders they stand. -Rev. Alison Bucklin
Bumper Sticker: I break for liberals. Sometimes.
Bringing a child that you can’t support into this world is child abuse.
I think there would be a market for funny sympathy cards. “He was a good bloke, sorry he croaked.” “He was only a pup, but now he’s toes up.”
Rotten egg gas holds key to healthcare therapies
Excerpt: Scientists in Exeter have already found that the compound protects mitochondria – the “powerhouse” of cells, which drive energy production in blood vessel cells. Preventing or reversing mitochondrial damage is a key strategy for treatments of a variety of conditions such as stroke, heart failure, diabetes and arthritis, dementia and ageing. Mitochondria determine whether cells live or die and they regulate inflammation. In the clinic, dysfunctional mitochondria are strongly linked to disease severity. ... Dr. Mark Wood of Biosciences, at the University of Exeter, added “Although hydrogen sulfide is well known as a pungent, foul-smelling gas in rotten eggs and flatulence, it is naturally produced in the body and could in fact be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases.” (I'm not a public nuisance, I'm a public health service! ~Bob)
I was out of multi-vitamins, one of the 30 or so pills I have to take every day, so I went to CVS. There were multi-vitamins for women and for men. None for the many other genders that progressives say exist. Shameful! Why are there not mass protests in places like Madison? And while we are at it, what vitamin should a transsexual take for health? One for the biological body or one for the identified gender?
In 20 years, kids will go to the zoo to see a Walmart cashier.
The lottery people are very picky. I was only off by one…
If your mother didn’t spit on a hanky to wipe smudges off your face, you probably grew up to be a snowflake.
If you could call in tired like you can sick, most workplaces would be half empty.
You may be physically beautiful and still be an ugly person.
If you are friendly to people, they will usually be friendly. If you are hostile to people, they will usually be hostile.
If one door closes…kick in another one!
Self-denial is the basis of all progress. What you want to see done, you have to get up and do.
“An expectation is a disappointment in the planning state.” Dr. Danusha Goska in “God Through Binoculars.”
Some people will use and abuse you as long as you let them. Forgiveness is often a signal to them that it’s okay to come at you again.
Most people are too busy asking God for things to thank him for what they have.
