RE: Taxidermist

Posted 3/12/2011 5:02:00 PM

A guy walks into a bar in  Arkansas  and orders a white wine.
 
All the hillbillies sitting around the bar look up, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.

The bartender says, "You ain't from around here, are ya?"

The guy says, "No, I'm from Canada ."

The bartender says, "What do you do in Canada ?"

The guy says, "I'm a taxidermist."

The bartender says, "A taxidermist?  What in tarnation is a taxidermist?  Do you drive a taxi?"

"No", says the Canadian "A taxidermist doesn't drive a taxi. I mount animals."

The bartender grins and hollers, "It's okay boys. He's one of us."

Feedom Bulbs!

Posted 3/13/2011 4:25:00 PM

Oh man, I thought we were going to talk some Canadian football…instead peas… Well I’m glad to see that we now trust what a Congressman says as unbiased best interest of America stuff instead of the olden days when they said what was in the interest of their PAC money….
 
Now in fairness the Congressman was from Texas so the big words in the bill probably threw him…
 
The law does not mandate CFLs. In fact what the law does is set energy standards for light bulbs sold in the US. There are incandescent bulbs that meet the requirements and thus will be available after 2012 and technology pushes by manufacturers to develop incandescent bulbs that will meet 2020 efficiency requirements.
http://money.usnews.com/money/business-economy/articles/2007/12/19/faq-the-end-of-the-light-bulb-as-we-know-it?PageNr=2  Or maybe the Congressman was talking about the bill Republicans sponsored and supported and GW Bush signed into law in 2007 banning incandescent bulbs by 2020? http://gratewire.com/topic/note-to-fox-news-george-w-bush-banned-incandescent-light-bulbs  
 
The “EPA Law” the Congressman referred to are actually just recommendations and carry no weight of law. There is no “light bulb police” nor laws that say you have to do anything with your old CFLs.  
 
CFLs do not contain enough mercury to pose a substantial health risk and the net amount of mercury pollution will actually be much lower because mercury is a byproduct of coal produced electricity. There are actually several factors less mercury in CFLs than mercury thermometers. 

And before someone starts with the lady that "had" to pay $2000 for a hazmat clean up crew... well 1) she was an idiot and 2) the company ripped her off for all they could. 
 
Actually despite the Congressman’s claim that all CFL bulbs are made outside the US there are CFLs, LED and other light bulbs made in the USA. http://www.usstuff.com/lightinc.htm
 
And really, how many of them cheap incandescent bulbs do you really think are made in the USA. My guess is there’s probably a higher percentage of energy efficient bulbs made in America than incandescent bulbs.

And really, Thomas Edison's legacy? Where were those cries of outrage when they got rid LPs? I miss those
 
But as a newly minted die hard tea party’er I’ve got to set facts aside for the good of America, pick up my pitchfork and join the outrage. IF’n I want to send MY hard earned money to the Bin Ladens and Kaddafi and if I want to help fund Iran’s nuclear program and increase China’s competitive advantages then that’s my right.
 
I’ll bet that Ground Zero Victory Mosque will have them CFLs instead of Freedom Bulbs!

Oh so you were being sarcastically facetious with the link and no punch line.... Still tasted like peas...

Besides, I got as much of a chuckle out of "freedom bulbs" as my converted little tea party heart would allow.

(To save PG the poof butten I'll just post the link...( warning; F word) http://www.motifake.com/listen-up-baby-demotivational-posters-80409.html

Jehovah's Witness (no, I'm not talking about CP)

Posted 3/14/2011 1:07:00 PM

There was a knock on the door this morning. I opened it to find a
young man standing there who said: "I'm a Jehovah's Witness."

I said "Come in and sit down, what do you want to talk about?"

He said,

"Beats the $hit out of me, I've never gotten this far before."

"I'm not talking about CP" + "I said "Come in and sit down, what do you want to talk about?" He said, "Beats the $hit out of me,..."
 
Hey that's redundant.

Like grandad said, marry a fat tattooed ladly; you'll have shade in the summer, warmth in the winter and moving pictures all year long.
