“I’m a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office
in foreign policy matters with war on my mind. Again, I wish it
weren’t true, but it is true. And the American people need to
know they’ve got a president who sees the world the way it is,
and I see dangers that exist, and it’s important for us to deal
with them.”

–President George W. Bush

1000 Valentines Day Cards

Saturday, February 14th, 2004

A guy walks into a post office one day to see a middle-aged, balding man standing at the counter methodically placing “Love” stamps on bright pink envelopes with hearts all over them. He then takes out a perfume bottle and starts spraying scent all over them.

His curiosity getting the better of him, he goes up to the balding man and asks him what he is doing. The man says “I’m sending out 1,000 Valentine cards signed, ‘Guess who?’”

“But why?” asks the man.

“I’m a divorce lawyer,” the man replies.

Enron and the Presidency

Wednesday, February 11th, 2004

This is an interesting bit of information that
you don’t hear much about in the media —

a.. Enron’s chairman did meet with the president and the vice president in the Oval Office.

b.. Enron gave $420,000 to the president’s party over three years.

c.. It donated $100,000 to the president’s inauguration festivities.

d.. The Enron chairman stayed at the White House 11 times.

e.. The corporation had access to the
administration at its highest levels and even enlisted the Commerce and State Departments to grease deals for it.

f.. The taxpayer-supported Export-Import Bank subsidized Enron for more than $600 million in just one transaction. Scandalous!!

g.. BUT…the president under whom all this happened WASN’T George W. Bush.

SURPRISE ……… It was Bill Clinton!

The Promotion

Saturday, February 7th, 2004

My brother Ken was home on leave from his post in Hawaii,
when he announced that he had just been promoted to
lieutenant commander. We were all pleased with the news,
but some of us less knowledgeable about military rankings
asked Ken to explain what the promotion meant.

After several failed attempts to get us to understand, he
sighed and said, “Before, I was Hawkeye Pierce, and now
I’m Frank Burns.”

Expressions of understanding immediately lit the room.
