The 3rd pic I am on the fence. While both of the commissioned officers are REQUIRED to salute, the 'hand over the heart' thing is a common courtesy/force of habit.

I am the furthest thing from an Obama defender, but in these instances I call bull****.

See?
I just want to ask who wears their wedding ring on their right hand? I was trying to see if this was reshopped but look at his pin he wears it on his left in every photo.....just saying!

Well they shouldn't be competing with the private sector, they should just be efficient with the jobs they are assigned by the Constitution, and efficient with our Country's Budget.

Well, let's look at defense. The government should be resonsible for protecting and defending the people against a military threat, right? How could we replace the military with a private sector organization? Who would fund it, how, and why?

This job - defense of the people - can not be commercially feasible, and it's pretty damn difficult to quantify its efficiency. "Well, we didn't get attacked this year, so we're doing well." "Well, we only lost Florida to attackers this year, so we're operating at 98% efficiency"

Dunno how it came across, but that was meant to come across as an agreement to your statement.

Military and our defense should be the gov't job. But as for the examples I had in mind when I read that, that would explain my reasons for saying that, I couldn't tell you... wish I could, but haven't been feeling well and my meds have me cloudy :/

PARADE IN GERMANY

If you don't think we are the laughing stock of

Time for a change I think!!!!!


These floats were part of the annual Carnival
Parade in Germany watched by an estimated 3
million people in 3 German cities including Dusseldorf ..







This is my favorite one of the bunch. There is enough there to go around for several bites !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If teaberryeagle posts it, you can probably find it by searching for "snopes <subject>" where <subject> is the subject line of the email.

This particular example of a teaberryeagle post is unique in that it's the first one Snopes has deemed "True."

Learning from Obituaries...





It seems that every couple of days we loses one of our treasured

ENTREPRENEURS.







Let’s get the players straight before we go on with this.




LARMONDO "FLAIR"ALLEN

His Companion: Kawanner Armstrong
His Sons : Christian Allen
Kwan Allen
Armando Allen, Jr.





His Daughters: Deidra Allen

Larmenshell Allen
Lamonshea Allen
Larmomdriel Allen
Larmerja Allen
Korevell Allen






AT AGE 25 - He had 9 Children.

(Could Kawanner Armstrong Possibly Be The Mother Of All Of His Kids?)





His Father: Burnell Thompson

His Mother: Esther Allen
His Stepfather: Bruce Gordy






His Brothers: Burnell Thompson

Edgar Thompson
Wil Willis
Danta Edwards
Reshe Edwards
Mattnell Allen
Burnell Allen
Lester Allen






His Sisters: Shannail Craig

Lekiksha Thompson
Gwendolyn Carter
Jessica Willis
Katina Gordy






Grandparents: Delors Allen

J.C. Allen
Anna Laura Thompson
Will Thompson






So, lets see now....



His Father, Burnell Thompson, fathered his brothers Burnell, Edgar and his sister Lekiksha.


His Stepfather, Bruce Gordy, fathered his Sister Katina.

His Mother, Esther Allen, must have been unwed when she gave birth to: Armando, Mattnell, Burnell and Lester.

We don't know who fathered Wil Willis and Jessica Willis, or Dante and Reshe Edwards.


Lets hope sisters Shannail Craig and Gwendolyn Carter are married.


GOT THE ABOVE ALL STRAIGHT?

********************
NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY





He was 25 and had 3 sons and 6 daughters.


NINE welfare recipients collecting$950 each.....

That equals $8,550 a month !!!

Now add Food Stamps,

Free medical, Free school lunches, and on and on




Do the math...$102,000+ /year.




Anyone out there, sittin' on their butt while reading this e-mail, making


A HUNDRED GRAND doing nothing?


Now that, to me, is a real Entrepreneur.




(ALSO, BECAUSE OF THEIR FATHERS DEATH, ALL OF THE KIDS WILL COLLECT

SOCIAL SECURITY UNTIL THEY ARE 18)




EVEN BETTER...IF "FLAIR'S"


THIRTEEN BROTHERS & SISTERS


FOLLOWED HIS ENTREPRENEURIAL


STRATEGY--THAT'S AN ADDITIONAL


$1.3 MILLION PER YEAR


BUT WAIT...THERE'SMORE!


IF ALL THIRTEEN BROTHERS AND SISTERS CAN


DUPLICATE HIS FEAT OF 9 WELFARE STRATEGISTS


THAT BREEDS 117 NEW RECIPIENTS COLLECTING $100,000/YR!!...OR AN ADDITIONAL


$11,700,000 PER YEAR...


& THAT'S ONE FAMILY


(And demands 100% the Taxes Paid by 1,000 avg. taxpayers)




And THAT is why this once great country is


BANKRUPT!!


ANY QUESTIONS?

It's not 9 welfare recipients collecting $950 each. $950 is about the sum total that his immediate family could have collected in welfare and housing assistance per month, not $8550.

While there isn't currently a Snopes article on this, there is a thread on the Snopes message board, and that led me to the Louisiana DCFS site.

teaberryeagle, when you come across something that you want to share, please do at least some basic fact checking before posting. When you get outraged that the government is doing something stupid, chances are pretty damn good that the situation has been misreported.
