We saw a bumper sticker this week that really made us stop and think. It appears that so many people feel this way anymore and so many people have such little respect for our government.
The bumper sticker
We Love Our Country
We Fear Our Government

Obama Healthcare Makes Me Sick
Had a great story we wanted to tell you about someone, but I forgot who and what it was.
We have a new cat at our house. He is a Manx breed, you know a big M on his forehead and no tail. They are a little on the odd looking side as their back legs are longer than their front legs and no tail at all. We have two other Manx cats and they fit right in with our odd family.
We got this one at the shelter in Frankfort. Chanson found him on the internet and since he came from the capital, Chanson named him “Governor.” His favorite past time is resting on the arm of the chair and watching the screen of my laptop while I am working.
If there are a few cat hairs on your paper this week, he is here now watching me talk about him.
If Men Got Pregnant...
Maternity leave would last for two years...with full pay.

Natural childbirth would become obsolete.
Morning sickness would rank as the nation's number one health problem.
All methods of birth control would be improved 100 percent effectiveness.
Children would be kept in the hospital until they were toilet trained.
Men would be EAGER to talk about commitment.
They wouldn't think twins were quite so cute.
Fathers would demand that their SONS be home from dates by 10:00pm.
Men could use THEIR briefcases as diaper bags.
They'd have to stop saying, "I'm afraid I'll drop him."
Paternity suits would be a line of clothes.
They'd stay in bed for the entire nine months.
Menus at most restaurants would list ice cream and pickles as an entree.
The personnel office received an email requesting a listing of the department staff broken down by age and sex.
The personnel office sent this reply...
"Attached is a list of our staff. We currently have no one broken down by age or sex. However, we have a few alcoholics."

Not for sure about the following but we will pass along anyway.
Top 10 Reasons Eve Was Created
God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the garden because he would not ask for directions.
God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and hand him the remote.
God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him.
God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor's, dentist, or haircut appointment for himself.
God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the garbage on the curb.
God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing.
As the Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he left his tools.
Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.
As the Bible says, It is not good for man to be alone!
When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched his head, and said, "I can do better than that!"
