The Government Explained in Layman’s Terms
Born: November 28, 1820.. Friedrich Engels was a German philosopher, communist, social scientist, journalist and businessman. (Not a Layman)
1. From the first day to this, sheer greed was the driving spirit of civilization.
2. All history has been a history of class struggles between dominated classes at various stages of social development.
3. Some laws of state aimed at curbing crime are even more criminal.
4. We find two great gangs of political speculators, who alternately take possession of the state power and exploit it by the most corrupt ends -- the nation is powerless against these two great cartels of politicians who are ostensibly its servants, but in reality dominate and plunder it.
NOW::: How Little Johnny sees it. (I understand this)
A teacher was teaching her second grade class about the government, so for homework that one day, she told her her students to ask their parents what the government is. When Little Johnny got home that day, he went up to his dad and ask his what the government was. His dad thought for a while and answered, ''Look at it this way: I'm the president, your mom is Congress, your maid is the work force, you are the people and your baby brother is the future.'' ''I still don't get it'' responded the Little Johnny. ''Why don't you sleep on it then? Maybe you'll understand it better,'' said the dad. ''Okay then...good night'' said Little Jonny went off to bed. In the middle of the night, Little Johnny was awakened by his baby brother's crying. He went to his baby brother's crib and found that his baby brother had taken a crap in his diaper. So Little Johnny went to his parent's room to get help. When he got to his parent's bedroom, he looked through the keyhole to check if his parents were asleep. Through the keyhole he saw his mom loudly snoring, but his dad wasn't there. So he went to the maid's room. When he looked through the maid's room keyhole, he saw his dad having sex with his maid. Little Johnny was surprised, but then he just realized something and thinks aloud, ''OH!! Now I understand the government! The President is screwing the work force, Congress is fast asleep, nobody cares about the people, and the future is full of s**t!''
After all the hiking it was time to enjoy myself at the banquet..LOL (Have a Great Day)

I think I've discovered the secret of life
Have A “Quality Time Day”
A balding, white haired man from Sherman Oaks in California , walked into a jewelry store in
a local mall this past Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side.
He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.
The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.'
At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over.
'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000' the jeweler said.
The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.
The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'
The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, 'by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick up the ring Monday afternoon.'
On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said 'There was only $25 in your account.'
'I know, said the old man,
'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'

1. This morning when I put on my underwear I could hear the fruit-of-the-loom guys laughing at me.
2. I came from a real tough neighborhood. I put my hand in some cement and felt another hand.
3. I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.

A guy was looking for a place to sit in a crowded university library. He asked a girl "Do you mind if I sit beside you?"
The girl replied in a loud voice: "I DON 'T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!"
All the students in the library started staring at the guy; he was truly embarrassed and moved to another table. After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy's table and said with a laugh: "I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt really embarrassed, right?”
The guy then responded in a loud voice: "WHAT, A $1000 FOR ONE NIGHT? ... . . YOU MUST BE GOOD TO CHARGE THAT!"
All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock. The guy then whispered in her ear: "I study law: I know how to screw people."

What Is It With Blondes
Ivanka Trump slowly transitioned from honey blonde to a cooler shade. Is it a power move? Nooooooo she wanted to use her private email for government business…..
A blonde driving a car became lost in a snowstorm. She didn't panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it." Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. And she explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, do you want to follow me over to Best Buy now?"

Why Has America Become So Divided?
Maybe the better question is; “Can the United States Become More United.”
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”
— Senator John McCain (2018)
“Four reasons the United States doesn’t seem so united anymore” READ ARTICLE Joe Pierre M.D. from Psychology Today…. Worth the read..
Some of “My Friends” both Democrats and Republicans on Facebook have made very disparaging exaggerated and untrue statements concerning each other. The attack ads for the most recent election gave me the idea I shouldn’t vote for either candidate. I think this “win at all costs mentality” is very divisive for for our country. The article from Psychology Today adds some much needed perspective. Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Day…… (For my own part, I will be more careful about what I post/comment)

War & More George S. Patton Jr. Born: 11-11 1885
My thoughts on a sad situation at bottom of post…..
George S. Patton Jr. Born: 11-11 1885
George Smith Patton Jr. was a General of the United States Army who commanded the U.S. Seventh Army in the Mediterranean theater of World War II, and the U.S. Third Army in France and Germany following the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944. Wikipedia
A. “Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.”
B. “Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.”
C. “If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.”
John McCrae’s ‘In Flanders Fields’
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.”
My thoughts on a sad situation:: There was a mass shooting in a popular bar in Thousand Oaks, California. Twelve are dead. The killer was a local ex-Marine. For his final act, he killed himself.
A. Gun control ( right or wrong ) isn’t going to happen anytime soon. ( just a fact ).
B. ( PTSD ) “Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a real illness. You can get PTSD after living through or seeing a traumatic event, such as war, a hurricane, sexual assault, physical abuse, or a bad accident.PTSD makes you feel stressed and afraid after the danger is over. It affects your life and the people around you. Read More ( MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE)
C. The U.S. Dept. of veteran affairs & our military need to do more. PTSD: National Center for PTSD …
Veterans Crisis Line:
D. Alcohol and Drug addiction is a major cause of all crime/deaths in the U.S.A. PREVENTION/TREATMENT IS THE ANSWER. SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357), (also known as the Treatment Referral Routing Service) or TTY: 1-800-487-4889 is a confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental and/or substance use disorders. This service provides referrals to local treatment facilities, support groups, and community-based organizations. Callers can also order free publications and other information.
E. In our world today we all need to be more vigilant and aware of our surroundings/situation. If you hear/see something that needs to be reported do it.
F. Prayers are probably doing much more than we realize. KEEP IT UP… In particular I use:: “YOUR will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (pretty much covers everything)
AND BE VIGILANT & SAFE……

Martin Luther & Mikhail Kalashnikov…..
Martin Luther: Born: November 10, 1483, Eisleben, Germany.. was a German professor of theology, composer, priest, monk, and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther came to reject several teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. He strongly disputed the Catholic view on indulgences. Wikipedia

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.”
“I wanted to invent an engine that could run for ever. I could have developed a new train, had I stayed in the railway. It would have looked like the AK-47 though.
I made it to protect the motherland.
I was probably born with some designing abilities.”
I was talking to a young woman in the VFW last night.
She said, "If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you'd look all right.”
I said, “If I did that, I'd be talking to your friends over there instead of you.”
Cost me a fat lip, but...
When you’re seventy..............who cares?

Joe Todd Says, “Have a great day…………..
Robert Sargent Shriver Jr November 9, 1915 – January 18, 2011)
Shriver was the driving force behind the creation of the Peace Corps, and founded the Job Corps, Head Start, and other programs as the "architect" of the 1960s "War on Poverty." He was the Democratic Party's nominee for Vice President in the 1972 presidential election.
“Peace requires the simple but powerful recognition that what we have in common as human beings is more important and crucial than what divides us.”
“The most important thing that I know about living is love. Nothing surpasses the benefits received by a human being who makes compassion and love the objective of his or her life. For it is only by compassion and love that anyone fulfills successfully their own life’s journey. Nothing equals love.”
"It is not what you get out of life that counts. It's what you give and what is given from the heart."
"It is well to be prepared for life as it is, but it is better to be prepared to make life better than it is."
"Serve, serve, serve. Because in the end, it will be the servants who save us all."
― Sargent Shriver
