“Many a little makes a mickle.”

Handshake.jpg

 

In Switzerland it has long been customary for students to shake the hands of their teachers at the beginning and end of the school day. It’s a sign of solidarity and mutual respect between teacher and pupil, one that is thought to encourage the right classroom atmosphere. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga recently felt compelled to further explain that shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.

And the reason she felt compelled to speak out about the handshake is that two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who have lived in Switzerland for several years (and thus are familiar with its mores), in the town of Therwil, near Basel, refused to shake the hands of their teacher, a woman, because, they claimed, this would violate Muslim teachings that contact with the opposite sex is allowed only with family members.

At first the school authorities decided to avoid trouble, and initially granted the boys an exemption from having to shake the hand of any female teacher. But an uproar followed, as Mayor Reto Wolf explained to the BBC: “the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school. In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought home to the children in school.”

Therwil’s Educational Department reversed the school’s decision, explaining in a statement on May 25 that the school’s exemption was lifted because “the public interest with respect to equality between men and women and the integration of foreigners significantly outweighs the freedom of religion.” It added that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake. Furthermore, if the students refused to shake hands again “the sanctions called for by law will be applied,” which included a possible fine of up to 5,000 dollars.

This uproar in Switzerland, where many people were enraged at the original exemption granted to the Muslim boys, did not end after that exemption was itself overturned by the local Educational Department. The Swiss understood quite clearly that this was more than a little quarrel over handshakes; it was a fight over whether the Swiss would be masters in their own house, or whether they would be forced to yield, by the granting of special treatment, to the Islamic view of the proper relations between the sexes. It is one battle – small but to the Swiss significant – between overweening Muslim immigrants and the indigenous Swiss.

Naturally, once the exemption was withdrawn, all hell broke loose among Muslims in Switzerland. The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland, instead of yielding quietly to the Swiss decision to uphold the handshaking custom, criticized the ruling in hysterical terms, claiming that the enforcement of the handshaking is “totalitarian” (!) because its intent is to “forbid religious people from meeting their obligations to God.”

That, of course, was never the “intent” of the long-standing handshaking custom, which was a nearly-universal custom in Switzerland, and in schools had to do only with encouraging the right classroom atmosphere of mutual respect between instructor and pupil, of which the handshake was one aspect.

The Swiss formulation of the problem – weighing competing claims — will be familiar to Americans versed in Constitutional adjudication. In this case “the public interest with respect to equality” of the sexes and the “integration of foreigners” (who are expected to adopt Swiss ways, not force the Swiss to exempt them from some of those ways) were weighed against the “religious obligations to God” of Muslims, and the former interests found to outweigh the latter.

What this case shows is that even at the smallest and seemingly inconsequential level, Muslims are challenging the laws and customs of the Infidels among whom they have been allowed to settle [i.e., stealth jihad toward sharia dominance]. Each little victory, or defeat, will determine whether Muslims will truly integrate into a Western society or, instead, refashion that society to meet Muslim requirements.

The handshake has been upheld and, what’s more, a stiff fine now will be imposed on those who continue to refuse to shake hands with a female teacher. This is a heartening sign of non-surrender by the Swiss. But the challenges of the Muslims within Europe to the laws and customs of the indigenes have no logical end and will not stop.

And the greater the number of Muslims allowed to settle in Europe, the stronger and more frequent their challenges will be. They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society, and eventually, through sheer force of numbers from both migration and by outbreeding the Infidels, to fashion not a parallel society but one society — now dominated by Muslim sharia.

The Swiss handshaking dispute has received some, but not enough, press attention. Presumably, it’s deemed too inconsequential a matter to bother with. But the Swiss know better. And so should we.

There’s an old Scottish saying that in one variant reads: “Many a little makes a mickle.” That is, the accumulation of many little things leads to one big thing. That’s what’s happening in Europe today. This was one victory for the side of sanity. There will need to be a great many more.

They won’t shake hands but they will rape them in a heart beat.

Oscar Stolen

 

170227_gma_robach_16x9_992.jpg

I had the TV on without sound last night and I looked up just as the announcement was about to be made for the best picture. Two dinosaurs were in charge, Warren Beatty held the envelope and Faye Dunaway (Bonnie and Clyde) was at his shoulder. He opened the envelop and looked at it befuddled, then handed it to Dunaway. She looked right at the teleprompter without having even glanced at the card and announced La La Land. The crowd cheered, and actors were running to the stage. The usual mayhem followed. All seemed normal except for one thing, the real winner was Moonlight. A Producer on stage took the card from Beatty and showed it to the camera it clearly said in very large letters “Moonlight.” Even a very sight impaired person could have read it.

moonlight-wins-best-picture.jpg

What happened? I think Beatty and Dunaway were in cahoots in an effort to steal the best picture award. Except Beaty couldn’t bring himself to do it, so he handed the job off to Dunaway who declared the winner she wanted rather than to read the card.

If I were the the true winners from Moonlight, I’d be filing a huge lawsuit today to sue Dunaway and Beatty for a trillion dollars. They succeeded in stealing a million dollar moment from the people who were rightly selected as the best. It is interesting to hear all the lame excuses the Oscar company is spinning about how it happened. Each of them is a lie.

Here they are heralding the best of the best of their industry, and it turns into a fake news event, that’s Hollywood.

I could be wrong on this. Knowing the morality of Hollywood it could be that La La Land was the real winner, and the Producer stole it from them by slipping a false Moonlight card into Beatty’s hand.

Simple Solutions

This simple analogy has been around for awhile, but I like it because it is so illustrative of the differences between people who believe big government is the answer to every problem versus the people who believe in small government big liberty.

The governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the governor’s dog, then bites the governor.

main-qimg-253cb719a926b08bac854889c38a8e2f-c.jpeg

15.jpeg
The governor starts to intervene, but then reflects on the movie “Bambi” and then he realizes that he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.
He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

He then calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases.

The governor goes to hospital spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish and Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

The governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a “coyote awareness program” for residents of that area.

The state legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re: the nature
of coyotes. PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.

Meanwhile in Texas…

fast_draw_by_animaker131-d4o594l.jpg

The governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

The governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.

The governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge. The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

That is the difference between a Red and a Blue state, explains why California is broke and Texas is not, and speaks to why we have Trump and not Hillary.

Assimilation???

This video is somewhat alarming, but not unusual for new immigrants coming into the country. I live in Chicago and over the past seventy years I have seen neighborhoods similar to this one in Dearborn with some exceptions. The signage was in Polish, Italian, German, and most recently Mexican. People who come into our country need to live near other people of their own nationality. Think about it, if you were suddenly dropped into an area of Iraq and had to learn the language, read the strange alphabet, assimilate into their culture how would you like it. Most likely, you would want to live in there American village with all the other Americans. Do you think the Iraqi’s would welcome you with open arms? Most likely, they would be hollering and screaming at you to get the hell out. Also not an easy thing to take. Assimilation takes time, learning a new language takes time, learning your way around the block takes time, finding food you can eat all takes an effort. None of it is easy.

What seems to be different with the Muslim immigrant is an Imam preaching not to assimilate. All of the kids I went to school with were pushed by their parents to learn the language, and to learn in school. My brother learned to speak English in grammar school. My sister and I learned from him, my parents learned from us, and from English classes for immigrants. There wasn’t a single nationality that harbored a hatred for America. Every Mexican I know is a friend. I love them as a people. They love America, they learn the language, they work hard, and they want to be your friend.

I would love to be alive a hundred years from now to see just how this new world works out.

PSA-170214-Did You Know?

I have seen too many of my friends posting negative comments on Facebook about Republicans, and President Trump taking their Social Security benefits away. The implication is that the Republicans will be the bad guys who leave us hanging out to dry. The brief history below timelines all the changes to the Social Security law from the inception. After you read this ask yourself which party is the most likely to remove your benefit?

Your SS Card – did you know?
History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Just in case some of you didn’t know this. It’s easy to
check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show
it to your family and friends. They need a little history
lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether
you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated
the number and card were not to be used for identification
purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now
has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway
and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
��
1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary
��

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65%
on the first $90,000
��

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible
��

4.) That the money the participants put into the
independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the
general operating fund, and therefore, would
only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other
Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to
The General Fund and Spent
��

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never
be taxed as income.
��
Under Clinton & Gore
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed
��
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
now receiving a Social Security check every month —
and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put
away’ — you may be interested in the following:
��
———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —-
��
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the
independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically
controlled House and Senate.
��
———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —
��
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.
��
———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —–
��
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting
the
‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the US
��
———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— –
��
Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants?
��
AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That’s right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democratic Party gave these payments to them,
even though they never paid a dime into it!
��
———— — ———— ——— —– ———— ——— ———
��
Then, after violating the original contract (FICA),
the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans
want to take your Social Security away!

  1. A salesman dropped in to see a business customer. Not a soul was in the office except a big dog emptying wastebaskets. The salesman stared at the animal, wondering if his imagination could be playing tricks on him. The dog looked up and said, “Don’t be surprised. This is just part of my job.” “Incredible!” exclaimed the man. “I can’t believe it! Does your boss know what a prize he has in you? An animal that can talk!” “No, no,” pleaded the dog. “Please don’t! If that man finds out I can talk, he’ll make me answer the phone as well!”
  2. An old geezer became bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic.
    He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s clinic. Get your treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000.”
    Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about
    medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $$. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.
    Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me ??”
    Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”
    Dr. Young: Aaagh !! — “This is Gasoline!”Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

    Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

    Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t, — that is Gasoline!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back . That will be $500.”

    Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

    Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak — I can hardly see anything!!!!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, ” Here’s your $1000 back.” (giving him a $10 bill)

    Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

    Moral of story — Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”

    Remember: Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to tick us off.

    ENJOY YOUR DAY !!

    3. The Pope went on vacation for a few days to visit the rugged
    mountains of Alaska. He was driving along near the campground when
    he heard a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods. He
    found a helpless Democrat wearing shorts, sandals, a ‘Vote for
    Hillary’ hat and a ‘Save the Trees’ shirt. The man was screaming
    and struggling frantically, thrashing all about and trying to free
    himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly bear.
    As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers
    wearing Go Trump shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a .44
    magnum slug right into the bear’s chest. The two other men pulled
    the semiconscious Democrat from the bear’s grasp.

    Then using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off the bear.
    Two of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their
    pickup truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat
    in the back seat.

    As they began to leave, the Pope summoned all of them over to him.
    “I give you my blessing for your brave actions!” he proudly
    proclaimed. “I have heard there was bitter hatred between
    Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now
    I’ve seen with my own eyes that this is not true.

    As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, “Who was that
    guy?”Dude, that was the Pope,” another replied. “He’s in direct
    contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom.

    “Well,” the logger said, “he may have access to all wisdom, but he
    don’t know squat about bear hunting. By the way, is the bait still
    alive or do we need to go back to California and get another one?

    4. A balding, white haired man walked into a jewelry store this past Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.
    The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.

    The man said, ‘No, I’d like to see something more special.’

    At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. ‘Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000 the jeweler said.
    The lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.
    The old man seeing this said, ‘We’ll take it.’
    The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated,
    ‘By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I’ll write it now ;and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds; I’ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.’

    On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said ‘Sir…There’s no money in that account.

    ”I know,’ said the old man…’But let me tell you about my weekend.’

    Not All Seniors Are Senile…

5.   A young man with his pants hanging half off his ass, two gold front teeth &
a half inch thick gold chain around his neck, walked into the local welfare
office to pick up his check.

He marched up to the counter and said, “Hi. you know, I just HATE drawing
welfare. I’d really rather have a job. I don’t like taking advantage of the
system, getting something for nothing.”

The social worker behind the counter said “Your timing is excellent. We just
got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and
bodyguard for his beautiful daughter.

You’ll have to drive around in his 2016 Mercedes-Benz CL & he will supply
all of your clothes.”

“Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You’ll also be expected
to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward
but you will also have to satisfy her sexual urges as the Daughter is in her
20’s and has a strong sex drive.

The guy, wide-eyed, said, “You’re bullshittin’ me?”

The social worker said, “Yeah, well . . . you started it.”

UP, A Two Letter Word

upwallpaper4qq1.jpg

A reminder that one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition.

UP
Read until the end ….. you’ll laugh.
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is ‘UP.’ It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].
It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.
At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.
We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, the earth soaks it UP. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!
Oh . . . one more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?
U
P !
Did that one crack you UP?

Don’t screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book . . .. or not . . . it’s UP to you.

Now I’ll shut UP!
