Whatever you give a woman, she can make greater.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.

Everyone has a position on gun bans, or the right to have guns, or how dangerous or not dangerous guns are.
Unfortunately, there are some interesting facts on a greater risk to the population that is being left out of the media.
We want to make you aware of a very common and much higher life risk than guns.
Please review the following statistics on our medical profession and gun ownership.
(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. Is 700,000.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.
by doing the math:
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.
( Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.)
Now think about this:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. Is 80,000,000.
(Yes, that's 80 million)
(B) Many own multiple guns, some have extensive collections, a conservative estimate is over 320,000,000 guns in the U.S.
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, for all age groups, is 1,500.
again, doing the math
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.
( Statistics courtesy of FBI )
So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
So, 'Guns don't kill people, Doctors do.' would be a more accurate phrase.
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
This is a public service message intended to show you how much the media distorts and sensationalizes for advertising sales.
Perhaps the slogan for the generation that said "don't trust anyone over 40" should, for the new decade, be "Distrust the Media".

We are about to conduct the largest release of admitted terrorists who already plead guilty, without ever verifying that they are indeed guilty, and acting accordingly.
This is not as simple an issue as the media would present, and we are being treated as simpletons by the media in their presentation of the issues to us.
Those that are celebrating a Cuban detention camp closing need to watch the INTERNATIONAL news and dig a little deeper - several who were already released from the US camp in Cuba have rejoined the active terrorist cells they originally belonged to, and are committing worse atrocities to others than they did before, or our detention did to them.
For an education on more on that aspect, try the Wall Street Journal from 1/24/2009 - Opinion: "The Laws of War Have Served Us Well"
This article can also be accessed if you copy and paste the entire address below into your web browser.
We already do a catch and release. It's one of the biggest jokes on ourselves.
Osama Bin Laden was caught and let go under a past administration.
We lost the towers on 9/11 due in part to that folly.
Now we are doing catch and release on the detainees we had in Cuba.
No wonder so many around the globe hate Americans.
We catch them,
We let them go,
they go kill more people in the name of whatever cause is the moment,
We then go to capture them again,
and destroy towns and cities while trying to capture them again.
We decide we can't get our hands dirty,
so we give them to other countries to torture for us,
then we decide the other countries are too inhumane,
so we do it ourselves,
then we decide we are against holding them, or torture, or any other war related action,
and we turn them loose.
If you think any of this is made up - feel free to contact me - I have articles that show this process is how the US conducts it's business abroad.

Let's reflect for a moment on truths that have arisen out of the ashes of great cultures in history,
and for many, ashes is all that remains.
History is a dry subject that many ignore at their own risk.
You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.
What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.
Those who do not study the history of such cultures are soon doomed to be a part of that history.
Now we have a choice - make history, or be a part of historical teachings

I could not believe this came from an English newspaper. Leave it to the creators of the language, the English, to express distinctly what happened in the election of Obama. We all should examine who, how and why this cult of personality was created. Obama doesn't have a clue about what he is about to undertake. This individual could not have gotten a security clearance if he had joined the military service. Now he is about to be the Commander in Chief of the U.S. armed forces.
An editorial from the London Daily Mail Obama's Victory
A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.
A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon. Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.
Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.
A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.
A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Maybe it 's just me looking at this as crazy, or maybe the U. S. Public went back to sleep.from the following article:
"SCHIP now covers about 7 million children and is set to expire March 31".
"Analysts say H.R. 2 would add about 4.1 million children to SCHIP, at a cost of about $32 billion."
"The Senate SCHIP bill would add 3.9 million children to SCHIP at a cost of $31.5 billion, analysts say"
for this math - call it 7 million plus an even 4 million childrenthat's 11,000,000 children insured for $ 31,500,000,000 - that's $ 3,000 per child, per year, of Federal dollars.
That cost does not include the matching state dollars, plus the co-pay schedule at the Dr.'s office.
Yet I can do children's policies all day long for $ 1,500 per child, per year, and be profitable.
Now does anyone wonder why Universal Healthcare is going to break the Federal Bank, when we, the taxpayer will pay twice as much for the service?
SCHIP Action Moves To Senate
BY ARTHUR D. POSTAL
Washington Bureau -- NU Online News Service, Jan. 14, 2009, 3:38 p.m. EST
House members today voted 289-139 to pass H.R. 2, a bill that would extend and expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
The Senate Finance Committee will vote on a similar bill Thursday morning, according to Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the chairman of the committee.
SCHIP now covers about 7 million children and is set to expire March 31.
Analysts say H.R. 2 would add about 4.1 million children to SCHIP, at a cost of about $32 billion.
The Senate SCHIP bill would add 3.9 million children to SCHIP at a cost of $31.5 billion, analysts say.
Both bills would extend SCHIP for 4.5 years.
America’s Health Insurance Plans, Washington, has issued a statement praising the House vote.
“Today, the House voted to ensure children in working families have comprehensive coverage for essential health care services, including primary care, preventive care, and immunizations,” AHIP President Karen Ignagni.
SCHIP expansion is “an important building block for comprehensive health care reform,” Ignagni says.
Ignagni notes that AHIP has worked with a broad coalition of groups in support of SCHIP reauthorization.
“We expect minimal hiccups on the path to passage and enactment” of an SCHIP extension bill, Beth Mantz Steindecker and Ira Loss, health care experts at Washington Analysis, Washington, write in a commentary.
House Republicans have been trying to draw attention to provisions in the House bill that relate to children who are legal immigrants.
The House bill would let states waive a federally mandated 5-year waiting period for public benefits for children and pregnant women who are legal immigrants.
Provision supporters say it would help states add 400,000 to 600,000 children to SCHIP.
But more than 100 House Republicans have signed a letter opposing the bill because the bill does not specifically outlaw coverage of the children of illegal immigrants.
“Without strict limits on who is eligible for the program, the ability of disadvantaged children to access this program will be jeopardized,” according to a spokesman for Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, the House minority leader.

it looks like someone is finally saying what many are thinking - and if this does happen, once again, Congress got it wrong.
Government Bailouts Could Backfire
BY DANIEL HAYS
NU Online News Service, Jan. 13, 2009, 3:51 p.m. EST
Massive efforts to support troubled financial institutions might end up increasing instability, by affecting the “precarious fiscal positions” of the United States and other countries.
The World Economic Forum, Geneva, Switzerland, presents that prediction in the 2009 Global Risks Report, a world risk assessment conducted by forum staffers with help from experts at Swiss Reinsurance Company, Zurich; Marsh & McLennan Companies Inc., New York; Zurich Financial Services Group, Zurich; and the Wharton School Risk Center, Philadelphia.
The authors of the report note that the United States is currently running a deficit equivalent to 4.6% of the country’s gross domestic product.
But the warning against excessive spending applies to Australia, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom as well as to the United States, the authors of the report write.
Trying to address immediate economic concerns without remedying the root causes could sow the seeds of new problems that may have a strong impact at a later date, the report authors warn.
Global equity values already have fallen an average of 50%, and there continues to be vicious circle involving declining asset values, write-downs and pressure on financial institution capital positions, the report authors write.
Sellers have flooded the markets with more assets than they can absorb, triggering further price drops and further financial institution capital charges, the authors write.
Meanwhile, chronic diseases, wars and terrorism continue to mar the lives of many, and the threat of a major influenza pandemic continues to loom in the background, the authors write.
The authors acknowledge the need for better governance globally but warn against a knee-jerk overreaction that could increase transaction and compliance costs and ultimately prove ineffective in the face of the next crisis.
But this year could prove to be an opportune moment to strengthen global governance and build the political will to restore global financial stability and focus on the longer-term challenges of managing scarce resources and climate change, the report authors write.
“If business leaders and decision-makers can overcome the behavioral biases toward immediate, short-term solutions and switch to longer-term thinking, then they will have made significant progress in adopting an attitude suited to the mitigation of increasingly complex and interlinked global risks,” says Howard Kunreuther, co-chair of the forum's Global Agenda Council on Mitigation of Natural Disasters.
