BABIES FIRST TIME . . . . TOOOO CUTE!!!

First time watching fireworks:


First time being dunked into water that's way too cold:



First time getting caught in a bubble shower:



First time chatting with a puppet:


First time finding a new recipe in a cooking magazine!!




First time forgetting how spoons work:



First time having their toes licked by a cat:



First time "drinking" out of a hose:



First time forgetting how glass windows work:




First time opening a present:




And finally, the first time experiencing the last of sour:




TWO DIFFERENT DOCTORS' OFFICES

Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does?

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.  Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

What Can I Do To Act More Like The Savior?

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. 

Be kind anyway.


If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway. 


The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

A Restaurant Manager Who Knows His Public Relations Because He's A Dad!

Read The Open Letter This Restaurant Manager Wrote To A Woman And Her Child Who Was Being Loud
March 14, 2016
A restaurant manager was asked by a table if he could say something to another table about the child being too loud. This is what he wants that family to know...

Left: Tony Posnanski / Right: stock photo 

To the woman and child who sat at table 9,I did not introduce myself to you.

My name is Tony Posnanski. I have been a restaurant manager for fifteen years now. My day consists of making sure my restaurant runs well. That could mean washing dishes, cooking and sometimes even serving tables. I have also dealt with every guest complaint you can imagine.

A few weeks back you came into my restaurant. I was very busy that night. I was running around helping the kitchen cook food. I was asked to talk to a table close to yours. I did and they said your child was being very loud. I heard some yelling while I was talking to that table. I heard a very loud beep from a young girl.

I started to walk to your table. You knew what I was going to ask. You saw the table I just spoke to pointing at you. I got to your table and you looked at me. You wanted the first word. You said… "Do you know what it is like to have a child with Autism?"
You were not rude when you asked the question. In fact, you were quite sincere. Your daughter could not have been more than five years old. She was beautiful and looked scared that I was at the table. She looked like she thought she was in trouble.

In fifteen years I do not have a lot of memorable moments as a restaurant manager. I remember some guests who were mad that their burger was not the way they wanted it. I remember a woman who called corporate on me because she said I gave her a regular Coke instead of a Diet Coke. I remember having to cut people off from drinking alcohol and I remember having to tell tables to have their child be quieter.
However, I do remember everything about the day my son was born. How I cried when I heard him cry. How I stood there and told him I would do anything for him and be the best father possible. I remember the day I married my wife. How I cried and promised to be the best husband possible. I remember the day my daughter was born. I did not cry that day. I was just so relieved because I lost a child two years earlier.

I know what I was supposed to say when I went to your table. I was supposed to politely tell you to please not have your daughter yell. I was supposed to offer to move you to another area. I was supposed to offend you by not offending you…
I did not do any of that.

Instead I just told you I hoped your meal was awesome. I high-fived your daughter and then I told you that your meal was on us tonight. It was only sixteen dollars. It meant more to me than that. I do not think the other guests I spoke to were happy about it. At that moment it did not matter to me.

I do not know how you reacted. I had to leave to go cook because the kitchen was not doing very good that night. When the server asked me why I bought the food I just said you did not enjoy your steak. I did not tell anyone what you said to me. I was thankful you did say it to me though.

You asked me a question that I did not answer. The truth is I do not know what it is like to have a child with Autism. I know what it is like to be a father. I know what it is like to be a husband. I know what it is like to not tell his wife how much he loves her enough. I know what it is like to want to spend more time with his children.

You asked me the question right away. You have been through this before in other restaurants. I did not want to be like other managers for one moment. I did not want to tell you what you always heard.

Honestly, I wrote this to you and your beautiful daughter because I wanted to thank you both.  You have given me a great restaurant memory. One that I needed for the last fifteen years.  You also taught me a valuable lesson…

Sometimes doing the right thing does not make everyone happy; just the people who need it the most.

Sincerely,
Tony Posnanski

Why Go To Church?

If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this! 
If you're spiritually dead, you won't want to read it.
If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!



A Church-goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday:

'I've gone for 30 years now,' he wrote, 'and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons, but for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the preachers and priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.'

This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column.  Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

'I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!

When you are DOWN to nothing, God is UP to something!  

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!  Be Thankful to God for our physical & our spiritual nourishment!  

IF YOU CANNOT SEE GOD IN ALL, YOU CANNOT SEE GOD AT ALL !

B. I. B. L. E. simply means: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!

When you are about to forward this to others, the devil will discourage you.    So go on! Forward this to people who are DEAR to you and TRUST GOD.

The Elephants That Came To Dinner

Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia, is built over an ancient Elephant Park.
It wasn't known at the time that this is a place the elephants come to eat mangos!
And they come each year, walking through the lodge to get to the mangos!
Incredible Video!  Enjoy!

Keeping America Christian

THIS IS ONE FOR CHRISTIANS TO READ AND FORWARD!
 SOME STATES ARE ALLOWING MUSLIM STUDENTS TO PRAY DURING SCHOOL HOURS. IF THEY ALLOW THAT, THEN WE SHOULD BRING BACK OUR FLAGS IN THE CLASSROOMS AND ALLOW OTHERS TO PRAY TOO! TIME FOR THE CHRISTIANS TO SPEAK UP.  DEMAND THEIR RIGHTS.

When we get 100,000,000, that's one hundred million, willing Christians to BOND together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God's help. 

Become one of the One hundred  million...  Then let's get 200 million.  It can be done just by sending this email to your friends. Do the math.  It only takes a single willing heart and a fed up SOUL.

God Bless America and Shine your light on Her!

In  1952 President Truman Established one day a year as a "National Day of Prayer." 

In 1988 President Reagan Designated the first Thursday in May of each year as The National Day of Prayer.

In June 2007 (then)  Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Declared that the USA  "Was no longer a Christian nation.
In 2009 President Obama Canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at  the White House under the ruse of "not wanting to offend anyone"

HOWEVER... On September 25, 2009 From 4 AM until 7 PM, A  National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION Was Held on Capitol  Hill, inside the White our House.  There were over 50,000 Muslims In D.C. that day.  PRESIDENT OBAMA PRAYED WITH THE MUSLIMS!

I guess it doesn't matter if "Christians" were offended by this event –

We obviously don't count as "anyone" anymore.

Now President Obama is encouraging schools to teach the Quran for extra credit, while at the same time, they cannot even talk about the Bible, God, pray, or salute the American Flag.

The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

Those Were The Days!

Heavens to Murgatroyd!
Would you recognize the word Murgatroyd?   


Lost Words from our childhood:  Words  gone as fast as the buggy whip!  Sad really!


Words gone as fast as the buggy whip! Sad really! The other day a not so elderly (65) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said what the heck is a Jalopy? OMG (new phrase!) he never heard of the word jalopy!!

So they went to the computer and pulled up a picture from the movie “The Grapes of Wrath.” Now that was a Jalopy!

She knew she was old but not that old… I hope you are Hunky dory after you read this and chuckle…

WORDS AND PHRASES REMIND US OF THE WAY WE WORD
by Richard Lederer

About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. These phrases included

“Don’t touch that dial,”

“Carbon copy,”

“You sound like a broken record” and

“Hung out to dry.”

A bevy of readers have asked me to shine light on more faded words and expressions, and I am happy to oblige:

Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie. We’d put on our best bib and tucker and straighten up and fly right. Hubba-hubba! We’d cut a rug in some juke joint and then go necking and petting and smooching and spooning and billing and cooing and pitching woo in hot rods and jalopies in some passion pit or lovers lane.

Heavens to Betsy!
Gee whillikers!
Jumping Jehoshaphat!
Holy moly!

We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a regular guy couldn’t accuse us of being

a knucklehead, 
a nincompoop or 
a pill. 
Not for all the tea in China!

Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when’s the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers. Oh, my aching back. Kilroy was here, but he isn’t anymore.

Like Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle and Kurt Vonnegut’s Billy Pilgrim, we have become unstuck in time. We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! or This is a fine kettle of fish! We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.

Poof, poof, poof go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind. We blink, and they’re gone, evanesced from the landscape and wordscape of our perception, like Mickey Mouse wristwatches, hula hoops, skate keys, candy cigarettes, little wax bottles of colored sugar water and an organ grinders monkey.

Where have all those phrases gone? Long time passing. Where have all those phrases gone? Long time ago: Pshaw. The milkman did it. Think about the starving Armenians. Bigger than a bread box. Banned in Boston. The very idea! It’s your nickel. Don’t forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Turn-of-the-century. Iron curtain. Domino theory. Fail safe. Civil defense. Fiddlesticks! You look like the wreck of the Hesperus. Cooties. Going like sixty. I’ll see you in the funny papers. Don’t take any wooden nickels. Heavens to Murgatroyd! And awa-a-ay we go!

Oh, my stars and garters!

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter had liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff, this winking out of the words of our youth, these words that lodge in our heart’s deep core. But just as one never steps into the same river twice, one cannot step into the same language twice. Even as one enters, words are swept downstream into the past, forever making a different river.

We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeful times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory. It’s one of the greatest advantages of aging. We can have archaic and eat it, too.

See ya later, alligator!

WAL-MART VS. THE MORONS

The original email forward I received is below this one at the top . . . some guy went ahead and checked out this whole email!!s  So his response to each one is in BOLD

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons  (The real morons are the ones who believe this claptrap without checking their facts first!) 
1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.
True.
2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!
That’s why three members of the Walton family are among the top ten wealthiest people in the world.
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.
That’s due to Economies of scale.  If you control the means of production from seed to table, you can sell more than everyone else, too!  Only one other economy has managed to do the same thing on such a wide scale – It’s called the Chinese Communist Party!  Ironic that most of Wal-Mart’s products come from there!
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.
You, too can be bigger than all of your competitors if you can control the entire production and distribution chain, ignore human rights, poison the environment, bribe foreign governments, and help turn millions of Americans into thoughtless consumers!
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.
Over 80% of these “employees” earn minimum wage, have little to no health insurance, no job security, and can be fired for complaining about an abusive supervisor.  If all we want in the world is a debtor class who mindlessly do what their told all the time, Wal-Mart’s model is the one to follow!
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.
True.  But at what cost?
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.
Wal-Mart almost exclusively sells Genetically modified, factory-farm-produced food.  GMO seed produced by Monsanto must be grown using millions of gallons of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in order to maintain their single-crop model.  It’s been scientifically proven that GMO-produced food contain less vitamins and eating such foods may even be counter-productive to your overall health and well-being as your liver and kidneys have to work twice as hard to dispose of the preservatives and pesticides in the food you eat.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.
Again, this is due to a massive misinformation campaign by Monsanto and Con-Agra and supported by Wal-Mart.  Local, farm-fresh food developed using sustainable agriculture are being driven out of business by Wal-Mart’s “Low-Low” prices.
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.
Sad.  Who do you think is going to pay for all those people getting cancer, liver disease, heart disease, and diabetes from eating Wal-Mart’s food?
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
Each one responsible for destroying hundreds of local small businesses and putting millions of Americans out of work.
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)
You’ve got to hand it to them.  They really know how to spread the word.
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
And this is something we should be celebrating?
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
Why should they?  They already run the government!  They spent over $1.5 million in direct lobbying in 2011, the Walton family has given over half a million dollars to SuperPacs so far this year (all of whom have been accused of corporate bribery), former Wal-Mart and Monsanto employees sit in key positions on the FDA, EPA, SEC and the Federal Reserve (just to name a few).  In short, it’s laughable to suggest that Wal-Mart should “take over the government” because they already have.
This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
As if this was news, but who made them into corrupt morons? 
a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
That’s because it uses an outdated model that pushed the true cost of a postage stamp too low for political reasons.  Surprise!  They’re broke now.  Try sending a “letter” at UPS.  Do you think it’ll cost you less than a buck to send it?  Think again.
b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
Entire books have been written on this subject.  What it basically comes down to is
1)  Americans started living longer and the system as it was originally designed didn’t adapt.
2)  It was politically unpopular to increase the SS payroll tax to support the fact that people were living longer, so they simply let it go when it would’ve been an easy fix twenty years ago.
3)  As corporate profits increased, corporate lobbyists insisted that taking care of people post-retirement was the government’s responsibility, not theirs.  They then supported those candidates who maintained the status quo so they could protect their bottom lines.
4)  During the “surplus years”, Congress used the Social Security Trust Fund like a piggy bank to fund pork projects.  That money was supposed to be held in “trust” for every American who paid into it.  Now they’re calling it a “benefit” – the implied subtext is that benefits can be reduced or taken away.  If you paid into Social Security all your working life, you are “entitled” to that money.  It belongs to you because YOU paid for it!  Now they’re saying that you’re probably not going to get what you paid for it because they decided to rob the piggy bank and they don’t feel the need to pay that money back!  How wrong is that?
c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
Again, whole books have been written on this subject.
1)  Fannie Mae was doing fine up until the 1990’s, which is when Wal-Mart and other mega-retail corporations felt it would be better for their bottom line if more people owned homes.  That way they would need to buy more stuff to fill those homes.
2)  They then lowered mortgage rates and authorized the development of the Mortgage-Backed Security Market so that Wall Street investors would bear the brunt of the downside risk.  Unfortunately, the downside risk was also borne by pension funds and municipal governments.
3)  This ballooned into a massive mortgage market where people were being approved to own homes who had no income and no means to make a single payment.
4)  After the 2008 financial crisis, in order to avoid total economic collapse, the government needed to nationalize and embarrass Fannie Mae for essentially doing what it was told to do by its corporate masters.
5)  Four years later, mortgage rates are still artificially low because Wal-Mart is afraid that if too many people lose their homes, nobody will be left to buy their cheap products, which denies the market a natural bounce-back, which then only prolongs and deepens the crisis.
d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more..
If a population is kept ignorant and without access to basic necessities, they will be a burden on society.  However, if you educate them and provide venture capital for them to start their own businesses, then they will prosper.  The problem is that the current model serves the Wal-Mart corporate interest.
1)  Where do the majority of the nation’s poor shop?  Wal-Mart.
2)  Where do they get the money to shop?  Welfare, Food Stamps, Social Security.
3)  Does Wal-Mart support the social safety net?  Absolutely!
If the social safety net were ended today, then Wal-Mart would need to start closing stores in some of the poorest areas of the nation – losing millions in profits in the process, so it’s in their long-term business interest to maintain the status quo.
e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
Again, entire books have been written on this subject.
1)  Both Democrats and Republicans have expanded these programs with absolutely no idea how they were going to fund it.
2)  Wal-Mart and other employers have no intention of picking up the slack by insuring their minimum-wage workers, so they’ve been telling the government to provide health benefits and to take the cost out of the paychecks of their employees while they’re at it.
3)  The mega-medical corporations didn’t want to be left out, so they inflated their costs so that they can increase their profits while refusing to give health benefits to their lowest-paid employees.
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
See Fannie Mae above.
g. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
The DOE started working on ways to build an alternative energy infrastructure in the late 1970’s, but lobbying from EXXON, BP and others in the oil and gas industry, as well as US Automakers prevented it because a renewable energy infrastructure would hurt their bottom lines.  Only now we’re starting to build such an infrastructure but now even that effort’s being undercut by hydrofracking.  If we have lots of cheap natural gas, why invest in solar or wind?
You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
From Wal-Mart’s point of view, the government is working just fine.  Their mega-profits are assured, and the ignorant masses will continue to purchase their harmful products without any worries about government interference.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ?
The Affordable Care Act was another example of corporate welfare to the Health Insurance Industry.  Wal-Mart is bitching about it because they’re going to have to spend some of their money to their friends in that corporate bloc and not lining their own pockets.  But don’t worry, Wal-Mart has a solution like only Wal-Mart can do.  They just started their own Health Insurance Company!  They’ve even started putting Health Clinics inside of some of their Super Centers so that Wal-Mart’s shoppers can get a check-up by a Wal-Mart doctor who can then recommend Wal-Mart healthcare products and Wal-Mart brand prescription drugs!  That way Wal-Mart can sell more products while taking more of our taxpayer money in the form of expanded Medicare and Medicaid coverage.  Once the individual mandate kicks in, don’t be surprised if Wal-Mart starts offering Health Insurance to its customers just as long as their family doctor is a Wal-Mart employee.
Just don’t expect your friendly Wal-Mart doctor to provide you with actual healthcare.
Folks, keep this circulating.. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.
Yes, please circulate this with the rebuttals.  Only then can we start a meaningful debate instead of simply grandstanding a single point of view masquerading as the truth just because it’s repeated a million times.
AND I know what’s wrong. We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, that’s rich!  The author is an ignorant a$$ and anyone who challenges his point of view is washing in the bath of political correctness!  Give me a break!
Someone please tell me what the HECK’s wrong with all the people that run this country!
It’s simple.  The corporate political state has brainwashed the masses into believing everything they see on TV.  They provide money to politicians who support their point of view so that their name and message can appear on said TV, and then they’re elected into office so that they can do their bidding with absolutely no checks and balances.
We’re “broke” and can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.???????????
Now this guy is starting to sound like a Liberal!  If you want to help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans and Homeless, dismantle the entire military industrial complex, end the global American Empire, dismantle the Federal Reserve, end corporate “personhood” and outlaw the practice of fractional banking.  I guarantee that within three years, we could turn our country around.
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey, and now Pakistan – previous home of bin Laden.   Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
Aid to foreign nations is not the issue. Wars of Occupation is.
Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks.
True.  But they’re going to die soon anyway, right?  Oh wait, no.  They’re living longer, so I suppose we’ll have to depend on the children of aging seniors to support them.  That is, if they can ever pay off their student loans first!
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment, etc.,etc.
Exactly.  Sad, isn’t it?
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries.  Sad isn’t it?
If you took all the money given to other countries and instead gave it to “US”, Wal-Mart and every other mega-corporation would find a way to funnel the money back to themselves.  Of course, Halliburton won’t do down without a fight, so no help there, either.
99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.
I hope you do.
I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did.

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel

And yes, it's a fact that Sam Walton, who started Wal-Mart in Bentonville, Arkansas, always drove himself to work in his pick-up truck.
I reckon he did that so as not to incite his underpaid wage-slaves to find and hang him. 
 
It is also a fact that the tax "relief" given to the five surviving Waltons under Bush 43's "More, Much More for the Very Rich!" program 
was greater than the entire amount of tax relief given to the WAL MART Monster's SIXTEEN MILLION wage-slaves. 
 
These five have no brains or talents whatsoever. They simply were lucky enough to be born into Sam's family, just as Bush 43 was born to theĆ¼ber-rich, with a silver spoon up his nose, causing him to miss almost all of his Texas Air Reserve flight training.
 
It's as hard to get those records as it is to get the Obamamama's real Kenyan Birth Certificate!
