A Trip To Rome

A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband.
She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded: “Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”
“We’re taking Continental,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”
“Continental?” exclaimed the hairdresser. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”
“We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome’s Tiber River called Teste.” “Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s going to be something special, but it’s really a dump.”
“We’re going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.”
“That’s rich,” laughed the hairdresser. “You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it.”
A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.
“It was wonderful,” explained the woman, “not only were we on time in one of Continental’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel was great! They’d just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it’s a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner’s suite at no extra charge!”
“Well,” muttered the hairdresser, “that’s all well and good, but I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”
“Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.”
“Oh, really! What’d he say?”
He said: “Who fucked up your hair?”

The Action of Inflicting Hurt

Where in the world did Obama get the idea that he needs us to vote for revenge? He is obviously upset that we the people have wronged him in some way. Perhaps he is upset because we have tried to vet him in spite of his efforts to hide his true identity. Perhaps it is  because the 2010 election removed his total advantage to turn the country upside down. Elections have consequences is what he told us of shortly after taking office. I’m sure he will remind us again if he is so lucky as to be elected again. I shudder at the thought.

After reviewing the dictionary definition of “revenge”  The idea that he would want to hurt the country is appalling. There are those of us who do not believe his direction is in our  best interest. After all, not everyone believes in a socialist society of huge government controlling every aspect of our lives. Not everyone believes in protecting the environment to the point of returning the planet to a Neanderthal state. After viewing the news photos of the chaos created by hurricane Sandy on New York and in particular the chaos created by a minor gasoline shortage I’m sure we are glad that it isn’t happening to us. Yet, our energy policy will make those gas lines seen in New York a universal scene. Think about what would happen in your life if there is no gas. How long would it be before you become desperate? Is that why Obama wants revenge, because we don’t want his energy policy?

Here is one more analogy from New York. People are scrambling for food, clothing, and shelter. The hardship these folks see is obvious because we see them on TV. Again we are glad it is not us. What we don’t see is the hardship experienced by the twenty-three million people who are out of work. Oh, but they are on unemployment and food stamps we argue. Imagine yourself  in that situation before you rationalize how benevolent the government is. Perhaps Obama wants to revenge those of us who still have work and don’t need his huge government help.

What ever the reason he wants revenge it will not matter provided we do the right thing tomorrow. We need to make this election have some serious consequences for him.

Fire Fly Air Force-Chapter 16

Chapter 16

The Phyro King Gandor received flashes from his spy, Prince Lex. Lex told him the story of Torch’s rescue. The king became furious. He was upset that an outsider interfered with his business. A complete stranger stole a meal right out of his hands. He wanted revenge. The angry king planned an attack on Luke’s Lucern clan. Gandor sent flashes to his subjects. “Go immediately to where the air force is performing for Morty.”

Phyros sneak into the crowd at the fire fly competitions often. They loved to capture insects to eat. This time though, Gandor’s plan was to capture the air force. Gandor called for his Phyro fliers to hide in the grass to watch the show for Morty. On King Gandor’s signal, the Phyros were to fly up to capture a Lucern. He pictured thousands of Phyro’s, flashing in midair, and catching Lucerns. His tribe would meet afterward for a great feast. One by one, the Phyros took off to the meeting place with their taillights off.
