A gynaecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could.
When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynaecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, "I don't want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?"
"The instructor said, "During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark." After a pause, the instructor added, "I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the exhaust, which I've never seen done in my entire career"

The Bathtub Test:
During a visit to my Doctor, I asked him "How do you tell whether or not an older person should be put into an old age home."
"Well, we fill up a bathtub, then we offer the person a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to empty the bathtub" he said.
"Oh, I understand, a normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup" I said.
"No" said the doctor, "a normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

"I see ObamaCare as a big trainwreck
coming down the track."

architects of the 2,800 page bill, with its 17,000
pages of regulations, so far.
Which group inspired the Second Boston Massacre?
Was it the Christians?
Was it the Buddhists?
Was it the Hare Krishnas?
Was it the Jews?
Was it the Sikhs?
Was it the Rastafarians?
Was it the Hindus?
Was it the Shintos?
Answer: It was the Muslims.
For the past 20 years, since the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, dozens of Muslim terrorist attacks have occurred, although some were aborted by their own stupidity or our security forces.
With shouts of "Allah Akbar," by many with "Muhammed" in their names, thousands of our fellow citizens were killed or wounded.
Yet this administration always says we should not jump to conclusions. Well, the Left gets their exercise by jumping to the conclusion that it was the Tea Party, or white supremacist groups, or the Republicans. When it has always been the Muslims.
Are you going to believe your own lying eyes, or what comes out of Washington?
Perhaps "Islamist Radical Jihadist" is a fancier term. But make no mistake, it is those cultists, who are brainwashed five times a day facing Mecca, that go over the edge to the terrorism we saw last week in Boston.
We say, it's the Muslims stupid.
Where the Muslims are in complete control of government, Pakistan, Iran, they are plotting ways to destroy the Great Satan America. Yes, it's a tough world out there. Some groups are always attempting to take over weak, sleeping giants.
Political correctness is killing Americans; from
Benghazi to Boston; from Little Rock to Fort Hood.
It's not "workplace violence," it's Muslim terrorists.
This Barrack Hussein Obama administration has
not clearly indicted our self-proclaimed enemy.
Why? Only one person really knows, and he's
not talking ... Even with his TelePrompter.
God bless those first responders.
