Before we all move on to the rest of the Christmas Season...Remember this little story!!!

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind.

She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.... He was always
there for her.
She told her boyfriend:
'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her.
When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked
'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.
The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that.
The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears.....
and days later wrote a note to her saying:
'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before,
and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today....before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.
Today....before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.

Have you gotten your FREEBIE today??

So long as our society moves in the direction of "spreading the wealth" and becomes a "land of entitlements" will no longer mean anything to "live within your means"!! It is already a concept that is becoming extinct as we find new ways and reasons to "bailout" a FAILURE!

Many of us do it today with our "youth" under the guise of "protectionism", "no child left behind", and the need to "make it better for the next generation".....
All at the expense of never learning the lessons of life!!

Yes...I know; we must keep up with the needs of "the household" and the busy schedule of our hectic two-income lives that.... well, its apparently OK for the government to step in and provide those things we just don't have time for, Right?? After all, its more important to adhere to "peer pressure" and keep up with "the Jones's"

Did you make room for the "Golf Balls" ??

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough.....
remember the The GOLF BALL story with the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

Here it is:

"A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty
mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.. He then asked the
students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar
He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between
the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They
agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar
was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the
entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the
sand. The students laughed..

'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life..

The golf balls are the important things, your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions and .....if everything else was lost and only they remained,
your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and
your car.

The sand is everything else---the small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room
for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have
room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children.

Spend time with your parents.

Visit with grandparents.

Take time to get medical checkups.

Take your spouse out to dinner.

Play another 18.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter.

Set your priorities.

The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented.

The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.'

The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's......

always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.....

Please share this with someone you care about...

The "QUEEN" at work !!!


Talk about vain arrogance!!!

Newt Gingrich, a Republican, served in the House from Georgia from 1978 and as House Minority Whip in 1989. He was Speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999. During that time he never made use of military air craft.

Nancy Pelosi, Democrat from California, current Speaker of the House. The Pentagon provides the House speaker with an Air Force plane large enough to accommodate her staff, family, supporters, and members of the California delegation when she travels around the country. But, Pelosi wanted routine access to a larger plane. It includes 42 business class seats, a fully-enclosed state room, an entertainment center, a private bed, state-of-the-art communications system, and a crew of 16. Pelosi wanted "carte blanche for an aircraft any time," including weekend trips home to San Francisco . Pretty nice but very expensive perk! Her Air Force C-32 costs approximately $15,000 an hour or approximately $300,000 per trip home.


Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco . Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home district. Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi. Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan workforce.

Paul Pelosi, Nancy 's husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock. In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage.. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition's.

Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an 'economic development credit in American Samoa ..'

Pelosi has called the Bush Administration "CORRUPT" !!

How do you spell "HYPOCRISY" ??

EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD READ THIS !! Especially before entering the VOTING you won't Forget!!

I've figured everything out !!!

The new Health Care bill from the House uses the word “shall” 3,425 times. The word “shall” in a bill becomes a government order when that bill becomes law. One of those “shall” provisions deals with vending machines. Under this bill, the federal government will now dictate how snacks are arranged in vending machines - imagine that! Talk about the long arm of the federal government! Good thing everything is so transparent and OPEN, huh!!!

GEE, and you thought they were going to "sneak" something by you!!
Shame on you!!

Here's the latest update from Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn:


Working in the district this weekend, I encountered so many people who have deep concerns about the latest version of the Democrat health care bill. Over and over people asked me for sources of accurate information about the bill and Republican alternatives.

Of course, the best source of information is to read the bill itself, which you can find on my website. The bill is nearly 2,000 pages, so it may take you some time. As you read it, what will become clear to you is that if this bill passes, it will centralize health care decision making in Washington, rather than in your doctor's office. For more on that, I would also point you to this piece by Minority Leader John Boehener. He lays out the principles of reform that Republicans, and many Democrats agree on.

Floor debate on Speaker Pelosi's health care bill could begin as early as this week. A theme in that debate from liberals is that if you oppose this one bill, that means you are comfortable with the status quo and oppose any kind of health reform at all. A similar theme was picked up in the editorial pages of the Tennessean this week. As I explained in a Letter to the Editor that was published this morning, this simply isn't true. We can go a long way to fixing what is wrong with health care by committing to the reforms Republicans have laid out in the bills we have written:

1) Allow families to purchase insurance across state lines.

2) Allow individuals, small businesses, and other groups to pool together to purchase insurance in the same way that labor unions do today.

3) Curtail frivolous lawsuits and the defensive medical practices they create.

Liberals believe that if we shift the decision making on health care from your doctors office to Washington, it will cost less and more people will be covered. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has already warned Ways And Means Chairman Rangel that their Washington run public option would "typically have premiums that are somewhat higher than the average premiums for the private plans in the exchanges." I discussed the true costs of this plan on Fox Business Channel this past Friday. Tennesseans know from our experience with TennCare that a public option doesn't lead to lower costs.

As always, I will keep you posted as this debate continues. In the meantime, don't hesitate to speak out about how you feel about the Speaker's 2,000 page health care bill. Each of you has a strong network of friends and families who value your opinion. Let them know what you think, and as I keep you informed, please keep them informed.

My Best,


Ready or Not...Here it Comes !
