Super Smart Kid Shows Up His Class

Kids-in-classroom

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing
some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty, or give me
Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for
Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand
up: “Patrick Henry, 1775,” he said.

“Very good! — Who said, ‘Government of the
People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the
Earth’?”

Again, no response except from Little Akio:
“Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”

“Excellent!” said the teacher continuing,
“Let’s try one a bit more difficult — Who said, ‘Ask not what your country
can do for you, but what you can do for your country’?”

Once again, Akio’s was the only hand in the
air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.

The teacher snapped at the
class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Akio isn’t from
this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”

She heard a loud
whisper: “Fuck those Japs.”

“Who said that? — I want
to know right now!? she angrily demanded.

Little Akio put his hand
up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”

At that point, a student in
the back said, “I’m gonna puke.’

The teacher glares around
and asks, ‘All right! — Now who said that?”

Again, Little Akio says,
“George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.”

Now furious, another
student yells, “Oh yeah? — Suck this!”

Little Akio jumps out of
his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica
Lewinsky, 1997!”

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little shit! —
If you say anything else — I’ll kill you!”

Little Akio frantically
yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying
against him, 2004.”

The teacher fainted. As the class
gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, We’re
screwed!”

Little Akio said quietly, “The American people, November 6,
2012”

Another Reason to Vote the Bums Out

A gasoline tax map that explains a lot

In last week’s post about ExxonMobil’s 2013 earnings, I noted that we earned about 5.5 cents for every gallon of gasoline and other petroleum products we refined, shipped, and sold in the United States. Consider this: The federal and state and local governments collected 40 to 60 cents per gallon in taxes.
The American Petroleum Institute just updated their map showing the combined local, state and federal tax rate in each state as of Jan. 1, when new taxes took effect.

API-US-Map
API US MapThe federal gasoline tax is the same from coast-to-coast –18.4 cents a gallon – which means any variations have been implemented by state and local governments.
The highest gasoline tax in the country is in California, where it now exceeds 70 cents a gallon. Combined with California-specific fuel-blending regulations that drive up refining costs, these taxes help make Golden State gasoline prices the most expensive in the country.
Several other states, such as New York, Connecticut, and Hawaii, are close to California in terms of the fuel-tax burden their residents bear, though none has yet joined in crossing the 70-cent-per-gallon threshold.
I encourage you to study API’s map (click the graphic above to enlarge), or dig into its interactive version for state-and-local-level specifics.

Grumpa Joe’s Opinion

Cigarettes are taxed worse than gas, but I don’t buy them. Politicians know we need fuel to get to a job if we are still lucky enough to have one. Still, they continue to pick our pockets from every angle they know how. Gas is one of those necessary items we need to stay alive. Here is what I propose, that we use our vote to kick every incumbent State politician out of office and replace them with fresh new crooks who will take a year or two to figure out how to bilk us.

Black Activist Awakens His Community

I met the Paul McKinley, the man in this video, at a Tea Party meeting a couple of years ago. He is a fascinating young man who is trying his best to change the system. He has run for office, but failed to beat Jesse Jackson Jr.’s machine. Yet, he has not given up his drive to educate black people on the way our Democrat leaders, going back to Lyndon Johnson, have been enslaving them year after year.

Paul is on the right track, I hope he continues to make a difference. Life has to become better for blacks in America, and men like Paul will make it happen.

PSA-1410310-Mediscare Delayed Announcement

READ THIS AND LEARN………..

Did you receive your Medicare Handbook for 2015 yet? If you have already received yours in the mail please turn to page 12 and go down to the bottom of the page and read Find out what you pay for Medicare (Part A and Part B) . It states that the premium and deductible amounts were not available at the time of printing. It further states you may call 1-800-633-4227 to get the most up-to-date info.

I did just that and talked with a Medicare representative. She told me that they probably would not have those figures in until the end of the first week or possibly the second week of November. Now, let that sink in.

As soon as she stated that to me I replied , My, isn’t that convenient for the Obama Administration to actually hold off on those figures until after the 2014 election results. There was dead silence on the other end of the line. I told her thank you and that I would call back.

I may be wrong, but I really think that I am right!

You see on our Social Security increase for next year we are only receiving an increase of around 1%. Even the military are getting just over 1%. You can bet after the November 4th election the increases for Medicare A & B will be greater than any 1%. That is why they are delaying what the increases will be. Because if they had put it in that handbook, any elderly would be voting against the Democrats.

So anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to get the increases that are coming after November 4th.

******************************************

Since I already passed Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel’s (architect of Obama Care) optimum age to die (75) I am a Zombie, but I did not find any references in the Medicare 2015 book on benefits for Zombies.

I received the above message as an e-mail from my brother who is quite concerned about costs as all seniors are. This delay in announcing the premiums for 2015 falls right in line with earlier Obama Care announcements.

To be sure I was not being duped again, I called the number above to check things out.

Here is what I learned. Contrary to the information in the scare message, the agent gave me the costs and deductibles for each of my plans A, B, and D.

Here they are:

Medicare A-Doctor visits-FREE (in line with Obama Care) the deductible remains the same.

Medicare B-Hospital stays-$104.90/mo unchanged from 2014, the deductible goes to $1216.

Medicare D-Prescription plan-here is where things got interesting. The agent asked for my address,  county, and drug store. Strange, I thought. She returned with the following. My monthly premium for the prescription plan is $48.90, the deductible is $275, and the quarterly cost of my drugs will be $102.62.

Now that I know Obama did not with hold this information before the election I feel obligated to vote Democrat across the board for this gift, NOT!

I will not vote Democrat except for maybe one office. It seems our Sheriff, named Paul Kaupas is retiring. He hired his cousin Ken Kaupas from the State Police a short time ago, and soon afterwards promoted him. Ken Kaupas gets pension from the State for his service with the State Police. He will receive another pension for his tenure working for the Sheriff, and if elected, he is entitled to another pension as Sheriff. I lost track, is that double or triple dipping? Somehow this seems unfair and unethical, but it is perfectly legal. What makes me sad is that Kaupas is a Republican and he is as dirty as any Democrat ever. This is a normal process for Illinois politicians and for School Superintendents too. State of Illinois political retirees live a pretty fat life on our tax dollars.

In another case, our Senator Dick Durbin seems clean, but is he? His wife works as a lobbyist in Washington and gets some pretty fat paychecks doing so. It seems the Senator knows exactly who to hire for the best paying jobs. Durbin went to Springfield 34 years ago as a former teacher, now he is one of the richer guys in Illinois thanks to his enterprising wife.

Somehow the thing reeks of skunk to me.
