Actually, don't conservatives want everyone eternally in debt to them, so they can collect the interest?

And one can naturally ascertain that what follows is, if Liberals did invent beer then they will always keep the others "eternally" in debt..

It seems likely that it was a liberal who invented beer, thus conservatives are eternally in the debt of liberals. 7;-]

I guess in my old age, it now so much about Obama as it is about liberals.
I received this story in an e-mail. Humor!!

History of Conservative and liberals:
Well, I didn't read this from a book, but I did get it from a relative of mine - who happens to be a devout Democrat. Anyhow, he knew I'd get a kick out of it.

Here it is for your muse:

For those that don't know about history . . . here is a condensed version:

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of Nomadic Hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the Invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get Man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and
together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals or 2. Conservatives

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of Agriculture. Neither the glass bottle or aluminum can was invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for
them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery.

That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as The Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men (this term was coined in later years by a Conservative Governor from California). Some noteworthy liberal achievements Include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the Concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant.

Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard Liberal fare.

Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher Testosterone levels than what their men have. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are Liberals. Liberals invented the designated-hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the baseball pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Military, and generally anyone who works productively.

Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than what Americans are. That is why most of the Liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the
Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history: It should be Noted that a Liberal May have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above Before forwarding it.

A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to p.. them off.

Judge Jeanine is both funny and gets to the point...

Judge Jeanine Pirro used every rhetorical trick in her quiver to go after Obama and display how feckless a leader he’s been, and how dangerous the world has become because of his irresponsible recklessness. My favorite part is when she demands he put on his “big boy pants” and get into the game. Somehow I doubt he’ll take the advice.

Of the total of 44 US Presidents: Obama rated 5th best president ever. I was just reading a Democratic publicity release that said,
"...after a little more than 4 years, Obama has been rated the 5th best president ever."The details according to White House Publicists:

* Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and 7 others tied for first,

* 15 presidents tied for second,

* 17 other presidents tied for third,

* Jimmy Carter came in 4th, and

* Obama came in fifth

Obama the fundraiser-in-chief! After Benghazi he was off to Las Vegas for a fund raiser, he went to Texas but stayed away from the border crisis to attend two fund raisers and drink beer and enjoy pool. Yesterday a commercial airliner was shot out of the sky and today he is off to another fundraiser. He just doesn't want to be involved and wants to remain at a distance from the events that a president should be very concerned about. Someone today said he is acting more like an ex-president then the current one. I do not disagree.

The yahoo article is still a liberal view of the dysfunction. Reality is Obama has no interest in negotiating a compromise. He's just not that engaged. If he can't get what he wants, he walks away.

I think it is right about Boehner being better than one of the hardliners. He's trying to keep things together, but there's just no basis for compromise with Harry Reid and Obama. It's really Reid that absolutely stops EVERYTHING dead.

He's a foreign policy amateur and a domestic policy amateur. He's done damage to our economy and to our relations, particularly in Europe and in the Arab world. He went on an "America Sucks" tour in Europe as a candidate, not even as President. Would you guess I like Obama's policies? I thought not.

Now is the time to fully embrace the continuing "Fundamental Transformation of America", the destruction of the middle class family so necessary for totalitarianism to succeed.
