The Brits Fly-by salute to Obama

In case Obama didn't understand how the Brits felt when he sent the bust of Churchill back to England , a gift from the English during the Bush administration.


These pilots have not forgotten Obama's disrespect for America 's friend and ally.
YOU HAVE TO LOOK REALLY CLOSE IT SPELLS OUT 2 WORDS
ENJOY the Brits humor on Obama's last visit. They will never forget nor forgive! The Brits may be prim and proper but they still get their point across.


Harrier jets' fly past (fly-bys) over Downing Street in a air show salute to Obama.
It's good to see the RAF have a sense of humor.

Look at it from an angle or lean back in your chair, and squint; squinting works best.

Heaven or Hell!


While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be redundant) was hit by a bus and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St.. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."


"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator.


"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."


And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.


The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.


In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.


Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.


They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.


Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.


They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.


Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.


The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where

St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven...?


So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.


"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."


The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."


So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell...


Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.


The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.


"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"


The devil smiles at him and says,
"Yesterday we were campaigning,

Today, you voted.."


Vote wisely on

Evolution of Teaching Math

I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this? Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:


1. Teaching Math In 1950s (when I was in elementary school):

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

==============
2. Teaching Math In 1960s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

==============
3. Teaching Math In 1970s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?


==============
4. Teaching Math In 1980s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number 20.


=============
5.Teaching Math In 1990s:

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it's OK).


=============
6. Teaching Math In 2010:

Un hachero vende una carretada de madera para $100. El costo de la producciones es $80. Cuanto dinero ha hecho?
ANSWER:
Sus ganancias se $375.000 debido a que su negocio de registro es s?lo una fachada para su granja de marijuana.
[His profit was $375,000 because his logging business is just a front for his marijuana farm.]

From an e-mail........


Quote:
The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver,
came out strongly opposing AZ's new immigration laws.

Arizona's Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement in
response to Sarver's criticism of the new law:

"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were
sneaking into games without paying?
What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers
and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce
their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn't be ejected.
Furthermore, what if Suns' ownership was expected to provide those who
sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink?
And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured,
the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?"


- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer
