This is so darned typical… check it out.
Congressman John Barrow, a “Blue-Dog” Democrat from Georgia, is a good guy.
He recently did a TV commercial in which he proclaims his steadfast support for the Second Amendment and is endorsed by the NRA.
Then the liberals got hold of his commercial… a group of gun grabbers calling the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence did some edits on his commercial making him look like a crazed child-killer… and asking the Congressman’s constituency to contact him and make him change his evil ways. These folks are pathetic… but fortunately the good guys prevailed and John Barrow was able to keep his seat in the upcoming 113th Congress.
These commercials are less than a minute and you may want to watch them more than once to realize just how sneaky these little creeps are. John could do “nothing” to stop these commercials from airing… he just stuck to his principles and did not waiver.

A livestock fair held in Rajasthan, India every year called Pushkar Mela, brings out the best. Here’s a sampling of camel hair styling.
“The job takes about 3 years to make an engraved tatoo for an individual camels. First 2 years, there is just growing the hair and starts trimming. Inhabitant of desert does not use the iron engraved for the camels. They just cut and dye the camel hair. I have never seen such a beautiful works in the world” Osakabe Yasuo
In a busy Parisian cafe, a tourist is sitting alone, enjoying a crème caramel.
Another tourist approaches:
Me sit here?
Thank you, very nice…
Are you on vacation?
Me, I arrive yesterday…
What country are you from?
Quebec? Me not know Quebec ..
Quebec … near the Atlantic, next to Ontario , the Great Lakes …
No, me not know these places.
Never mind then, I’m from Canada ..
Ah! Canada! Canada I know! So why you tell me you come from Quebec?
Because, my first country is Quebec.
Oh, you were born in Quebec and immigrated to Canada ….
No, no, I was born in Quebec and I stay in Quebec …
Oh, then your father is from Canada ?
No, no, my father, my mother, my wife, my dog, everybody, they come from Quebec …
So why you say Canada?
For Gosh sake, because you say you don’t know where is Quebec!
OK, but if you say you not know Norway, me I not say that my country is Japan…
Shit! Canada isn’t Japan. Canada, it’s my country.
Oh, your country not Quebec anymore?…
My country is Quebec but my country, it can be Canada too, if the person I speak to not know where is Quebec, Tabarnak!
Me not understand…
Look, it’s simple: I come from the Province of Quebec , in the country of Canada.
Ok! But me not ask you what province you’re from, I ask you what country. Me, I come from Lofoten region in Norway , but I answer you Norway when you ask me what country I come from…
I know, I’m not stupid, Coulisse! But me, when they ask me what country I come from, I answer Quebec even if it’s the name of my province. For me, it’s my country.
Oh, now I understand. You are a separatist, you want your Quebec province to be your country…
Are you crazy, Hostie? I don’t want to know nothing from that shit!
Me, I not understand anything anymore.
I tell you before, it’s simple. You ask me what country I come from, I answer Quebec because Quebec is my country, but I don’t really want it to be my country, it would be too much trouble. I just want to say it. So, why
don’t you just let me say it?
Me all mix up. You have passport from what country: Quebec or Canada ?
So why you not tell me Canada right away?
Because it don’t feel right. For me, Canada is Anne Murray, the Calgary Stampede, the Mounted Police, SARS, it’s not my home all that. Home, it’s La Famille Plouffe, Saraphin Poudrier, La P’tite Vie, Falix Leclerc, La Poune, Les Canadiens de Montreal, Les Bougons… Do you understand???
Less and less…
Listen, forget all that shit. Ask me another question.
Ok, what town you come from?
Mmm…, I don’t know anymore…
You not know what town you come from?
Yes, yes, I know what town I come from, but my town it merge with another town, but soon it is going to demerge from the town that was supposed to be my town…
Oh, that very complicated. When you write your address, what do you write?
I don’t know anymore. Before, I used to write Hull , but Hull changed to Gatineau , but they tell us to wait 3 years before stopping to write Hull to not mix up the mailman. But now, the Liberals they pass a law that make it ok for Gatineau to be Hull again, but I don’t know if we have to
wait 3 years to be able to write Hull , or when the 3 years are passed, if we have to write Gatineau for 3 years, and after we write Hull . Unless, of course, the PQ come back in power and we remerge with Gatineau, then we’ll have to write Gatineau for 3 years.
I leave now; I have hurt in my head…
It’s so simple Tabarnak: My town is Hull, my country is Quebec but if you prefer, my town is Gatineau and my country is Canada.
OK, I think I understand.
It’s about time. Anyway, it was fun talking to you, if you come around where I live; maybe you come and see me…
OK, but where? Hull in Quebec or Gatineau in Canada ?
You’re a pain in the ass. Forget the whole thing
That, my friends, is the portrait of Quebec!
I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone. I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there. I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I live close so it’s a short drive. I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore. I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often. I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm. Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get! And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not. People keep telling me I’m in Denial but I’m positive I’ve never been there before!
I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is to get there. I actually kind of enjoy it there. So far, I haven’t been in Continent, but my travel agent says I’ll be going soon.
NEVER share your secrets with ANYONE…
This can be self-destructive.
NEVER tell your problems to ANYONE…
20% don’t care, and
80% are glad that you have them! !
Life is similar to a Boxing game..
Defeat is NOT declared when you fall down;
It is declared when you refuse to ‘Get Up’!
Always WRONG persons teach the RIGHT lessons in Life !
Everything is valuable only 2 times:
1. Before getting it; and
2. After losing it! !
Two things bring happiness & success in life:
1. The way you MANAGE when you have nothing, and
2. The way you BEHAVE when you have everything !
Two places are MOST VALUABLE in the world:
1. The NICEST place is to be in someone’s Thoughts, and
2. The SAFEST place is to be in someone’s Prayers.
One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness.
Faith is taking the 1st step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Keep your face to the Sun,
And you will not see the shadow!
A Deaf child says: “For all of you, I am deaf;
But for me, all of you are dumb…”
Moral: Life differs in each perspective. Live the way you want to.
It is always good to check once in a while,
And make sure that
You haven’t lost the things that money cannot buy..!!
Attitude at its best:
My BACK is not a VOICE MAIL..
Kindly say on my FACE.
Ego is the only requirement to destroy any relationship.
Be a bigger person; skip the “E”, and let it “go”..!!
One good thing about Egoists:
They don’t talk about other people!
What is SUCCESS?
It is when your photos are uploaded on GOOGLE,
Instead of FACEBOOK..!!
Do you know why God didn’t give us the gift to read others’ minds?
We could have the chance to “TRUST”,
And privilege to be “TRUSTED”!
As long as we don’t forgive people who have hurt us,
They occupy a RENT-FREE SPACE IN OUR MIND!
Always keep hoping for good.
Keep a green tree in your heart.
The singing birds will automatically come..!
God always likes to know again and again what you want…
It is not that He forgets your Dreams & Prayers;
But He loves to check your passion towards your desire..!
We have solutions to all the problems,
When they are not ours !!!
I asked God: “If everything is already written in Destiny, then WHY should I pray?”
God smiled and said: “I have also written- CONDITIONS APPLY…”!!!
Empty pockets teach millions of things in life…
But full pockets spoil us in million ways !!!
No one in the world is afraid to speak the truth.
Everybody is afraid to face the consequences after the truth is told!
Getting angry is punishing yourself for the mistakes of others!
Trust is like a STICKER.
Once it is removed, it may stick again,
But NOT as strong as it holds when you first applied it..!
Always take care of relationships.
Everything about the future is uncertain,
But one thing is sure:
God has already arranged all our tomorrows…
We just have to TRUST HIM TODAY !!
NEVER win people with Arguments, rather defeat them with your Smile!
Because people who always wish to Argue with you, cannot bear your Silence!!!
The search for happiness is one of the main sources of unhappiness.
Diplomacy is an art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that
they tend to ask you for directions..!!
If a drop of water falls on a Lake, its identity is lost;
If it falls on Lotus leaf, it shines like a Pearl.
Drop is the same; but the company matters.
Our HOPES should be like Hair & Nails.
No matter how many times they get cut,
But they never stop growing.
“F-E-A-R” has two meanings:
1. Forget Everything And Run…
2. Face Everything And Rejoice..!
Choice is ours..!!
If you walk the way guided by humans, you will find hopeless end;
& if you walk the way guided by God, you will find endless hope.
Memories are always special…
Sometimes we laugh by remembering the days we cried;
And we cry by remembering the days we laughed…!!!
Sea is common for all…
Some take pearls,
Some take fishes,
Some come out just with just wet legs!
World is common to all; what we get, is what we try for!
To smile without condition,
To walk without intention,
To give without reason, &
To care without expectation,
Are the beauties of any Relationship!
Life is very complicated…
When you have standards, people call it ATTITUDE;
When you are simple, people try to CHEAT you; &
When you cheat others, people call you SMART!
All communication problems are because
We don’t listen to understand;
We listen to reply…!!!
