Default The Difference

My son's orchestra leader sent this.

First of all I don't think it's professional for her to send this kind of crap to people who are not personal friends of hers.

Second, why the NFBSK does she assume I'll agree with this gigantanormous load of HORSE SH*T.

Third - I SO want to send a snarky reply back but I'm holding off.


This is just so full of baloney on so many levels. Simplistic and stupid.

The Differences Between A Republican & Democrat Made Simple



Senators Fred Thompson and Hillary Clinton were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. (DC has a lot of them)


The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.


Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.


Now, do you understand the difference??

But when the homeless person got to his office, Fred Thompson told him: "I'm sorry, I already filled the job with a fellow who doesn't speak English too well, but he'll work for less than the legal minimum wage and no medical benefits."

"Now be sure to go out there and tell the Democrats that their liberal immigration policies and medical care schemes are ruining our country."

Gah, that sounds like something my FIL would send out. All I can do is shake my head.

Yep. Republicans are made of sugar and Democrats are made of straw.

I didn't know lobbyists had a lot of open jobs waiting to be filled by homeless people.
