Where are all the wise politicians?

The more I read what this man wrote, the more I am awed by him. I would love for him to be around today to talk to the politicians and the voters. Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Thomas Jefferson

Spam really works???

I did a post a while back about spam emails and how it seems to me the senders aren't even trying any more. See it here:

I got a real winner this morning. Here is the headline:

It was Soapy's design to ass

An attention grabber, yes?

The body of the email (with links excluded - I don't want to send them any business):

You might have revieved an alert about that in our store (link was here) a lot of quality products. By purchasing our product you get a great gift. Many products and discounts.

Really? This is how you make a living?!?! Like I said before, it is said that the reason spam is around is IT WORKS! Who responds to this stuff? And spammers, if you are going to spam english speaking countries and people, AT LEAST LEARN ENGLISH! There is no work ethic any more. Sheeesh!

Just checked - the voices say I am still OK

Well we made it! 20+ years of teenagers is over!! My youngest turned 20 today. If you don't know or recall why I am happy, I wrote about this day in 2009. See it here:

16+ years of at least two teenagers in our house! It is a wonder I can function at all.

Happy birthday youngest! Move out.  ; )

The results are in!

I discovered today where all the old stewardesses (yes, stewardesses - too old to be flight attendants)
go to die...

Delta (more specifically, Delta Express)

I thought I had spotted the fossil remains of one, and then she stood up and started doing the safety demonstration. (moved well, for a mummified creature!)
