You then spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.
Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put away the cold water.
Next, remove another of the original four monkeys, replacing it with a new monkey.
Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by the fourth.
Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs.
Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the Banana.
Why, you ask?
This is how today’s House and Senate operates, and this Is why from time to time,
DISCLAIMER: This is meant as no disrespect to monkeys.
Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is continuing his attempt to “take down America any way he can” by accurately reporting the truth. Saturday on Twitter, Assange highlighted an article from Thursday where the Financial Times noted how many Syrian rebels are getting salaries from the CIA.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians
per year are
(C) Accidental deaths per physician
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept. of
Health and Human Services.
Now think about this:
(A) The number of owners in the U.S.
(Yes, that’s 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths
per year, all age groups,
(C) The number of accidental deaths
per gun owner
Statistics courtesy of FBI
So, statistically, doctors are approximately
9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
Remember, ‘Guns don’t kill people, doctors do.’
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed
by a doctor than by a gun owner!!!
Please alert your friends
to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors
before this gets completely out of hand!!!
Out of concern for the public at large,
We withheld the statistics on
for fear the shock would cause
people to panic and seek medical attention!
Just because we all need to smile Thanks Ellen
A union boss walks in from the factory next door and is about to order a beer when he sees a guy at the far end of the bar wearing a TRUMP “Make America Great Again” cap with two beers sitting in front of him.
The union boss doesn’t need to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Republican, so he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender….
but not for the Republican.”
Soon after the drinks have been passed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him then says, “Thank you!” in an equally loud voice. This infuriates the union boss.
After a few minutes, the union boss once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. As before, this doesn’t seem to bother the Republican.
He nods and smiles, and again yells,
A few more minutes pass and the union boss orders another round of drinks for everyone except the Republican.
Just as before, this STILL doesn’t seem to faze the Republican who continues smiling and again yells out, “Thank you!!”
Frustrated that he can’t seem to get the guy angered, the union boss asks the bartender, “What is wrong with that Republican? I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the dummy does is smile and thank me. Is he nuts………
“Nope,” replies the bartender.
“He owns the place.”

From Muth’s Truths
OK, let’s talk about the “failure” of Republicans in the Senate to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill this month. But first, a little history lesson.
After the Revolutionary War, the new states – former colonies – owed a boatload of debt for financing the war effort.
Then-Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton favored a robust central government and wanted the feds to assume the debts of the states. As such, according to Hamilton biographer Ron Chernow, Hamilton proposed “a gigantic package of fiscal measures (related to “assumption”) that he wanted accepted all at once.”
Then-Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson abhorred the notion of a strong central government and opposed the funding proposal. And on April 12, 1790 “the House voted down Hamilton’s assumption plan…and two weeks later voted to discontinue all debate on the issue.”
But there was another very controversial issue front-and-center at the time: Where the new national capital would be located. Hamilton desperately, adamantly wanted it to be in New York close to all his banker buddies. Jefferson, however, wanted it somewhere on the Potomac River – where Washington, DC is today.
You can see where this is going, right?
Yep. In order to get his assumption plan passed, Hamilton gave up his burning desire for New York to be the new nation’s capital.
Why did he ultimately capitulate? Because, Chernow writes, Hamilton clearly saw that the funding scheme “created an unshakeable foundation for federal power in America.”
The kind of federal power that today forces every single American to purchase health insurance or pay a fine for not having it on their tax return!
As Hamilton himself wrote about his reason for compromising away the capital to get his assumption plan passed…
“Whoever considers the nature of our government with discernment will see that obstacles and delays will frequently stand in the way of the adoption of good measures, yet when once adopted, they are likely to be stable and permanent. It will be far more difficult to UNDO than to DO.”
And this is exactly the political corner Republicans now find themselves backed into as it relates to ObamaCare. As difficult as it was to do, it’s even more difficult to undo.
Now, with our history lesson out of the way…
Senate Republicans DO own ObamaCare now – despite President Donald Trump’s declaration to the contrary. Yes, Democrats approved ObamaCare without a single Republican vote. But Republicans campaigned last year on “Elect us and we’ll repeal it.”
That check has now arrived. The bill is due. And the GOP owes it – even though it is, in fact, harder to undo ObamaCare than it was to do it.
The problem, of course, is that while we have a Republican majority in Congress we do NOT have a conservative majority. As such, a handful of liberal and populist Republicans have been able to block the bill – including some who voted for repeal in 2015 when they knew President Obama would veto it.
There was no real political risk then. No responsibility. A coward’s way out.
That said, understand that the fat lady hasn’t sung on this yet, because Donald Trump has a completely different concept of “failure” than most members of Congress and the talking heads in the fake news media.
To a businessman and entrepreneur like Trump, failure just means you found something that doesn’t work. Which means only that you need to try something else. Failure only occurs if you quit. And “quitting” is not an option in Donald Trump’s world.
So you can bet that behind closed doors in The Swamp, negotiations will continue and ObamaCare repeal is not dead. It’s just in a coma – until it’s resurrected.
And while I know many conservatives are not exactly fans of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, don’t sell the man short. He’s been at this game a long, long time. And he’s perfectly capable of pulling a Harry Reid-like “Louisiana Purchase” or “Cornhusker Kickback” out of his hat to get the one, two, three or four votes he needs for ultimate passage.
Just like the assumption/capital compromise between Jefferson and Hamilton.
But make no mistake. If McConnell doesn’t get this done before the 2018 elections, both the country and his GOP majority in the Senate are screwed. This is the last chance to uproot ObamaCare before it’s set in stone – like Social Security. And like Social Security, it will only grow bigger and get worse until it collapses under its own weight.
Which will make repeal far more painful down the road or make “saving” ObamaCare far more expensive.
The bottom line is this: It ain’t over ‘til it’s over. Trump won’t quit. And McConnell still has cards to play. The media can call what happened this month a “failure,” but it’s a nine inning game and we haven’t even hit the seventh-inning stretch.
On the other hand, Republicans never seem to blow an opportunity to blow an opportunity. And if they blow this one, they will pay dearly for it at the polls in 2018 – just like they did in 2006 and 2008.

As a “joke”, my Chev dealer gave me a Volt as a loaner while my full-size pick-up was getting some attention. He thought it was funny to give his energy company CEO this thing here on Vancouver Island! I live 30 kms outside of Victoria near Sidney.
The battery was dead – later he admitted they almost never charged it. While the car was “ok”, on gasoline, it was pretty anemic. So for the extra money, even taking into account Chev rebates and Provincial incentives, you get an under-powered, heavy car that felt “too small” for its actual size (battery has to go somewhere).
Now the kicker: at a neighborhood BBQ, I was talking to a Neighbor, a BC Hydro executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious. If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service.
The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On our small street (approx 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than 3 houses with a single Tesla, each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.
This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles … Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So as our genius elected officials ram this nonsense down our collective throats, not only are we being forced to buy the damn things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive, new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This latter “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead end road that it will be presented with an oops and a shrug.
If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are Eco-friendly, just read the below:
Note: However, if you ARE the green person, read it anyway. Enlightening.
Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors…and he writes…For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.
Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kWh battery is approximately 270 miles.
It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.
According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kWh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kWh. 16 kWh x $1.16 per kWh = $18.56 to charge the battery.
$18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.
The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000………So the American Government wants proud and loyal Americans not to do the math, but simply pay 3 times as much for a car, that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country…..

Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats… yet they are still POOR.
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
