My common sense is tingling

Saturday, October 13, 2012

When all else fails, turn to common sense.

Seems like a great idea in light of the current tone of politics in this country. Sometimes, solutions come in the simplest forms, and sometimes they come in moments of comedy.

A friend of mine, a true patriot who served this country as a Navy Seal for more than a decade and now works in the private sector, forwarded this to me via email. My email is constantly filling with interesting commentary, jokes, cartoons and other items.

This particular submission, credited to Larry the Cable Guy (although I can't confirm it), deals with some pressing issues facing this country. Thought it might be fun to share them for a chuckle in an attempt to lighten the mood in the final month of the 2012 political warfare.

Whether we credit Larry or not, I can't say for sure, as I checked online and multiple persons have credited him, while several others have taken credit themselves. Nevertheless, the following entry offers some good ideas for "getting 'er done."

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in our country lately: Illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida. Not me, I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a win-win situation. Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border. Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees. Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians; it creates a hostile work environment.

Thanks to the author, be it Larry, or whoever you are. That's funny right there.

Those are funny. Thanks for sharing. When I first started to read the article I thought it would be all Obama bashing jokes.
