Thank you, each and every one

Here in America, we’ve had nonstop negative politcal commercials, until last Tuesday, when the election was held.
I always knew I could find a safe haven here; of friends enjoying the harmonica together, without politics!
Thank you!
Don

I didn’t even think about that…very cool not one mention of politics…good point Mcmanus

Harp on!!

I think when politicos get into elections, at the beginning they swear against any negative campaigning bullshit. But when push comes to shove, at least in the final stages of it, they’re always saying the other person is negative. And people in glass houses, eh?!

But yet, I’ve watched Parliamentary meetings (verbal jousting) on the BBC channels here - And those blokes can get rather down and dirty into it too!

Anywhat…How about the Extreme Right & Left Coasts thinking they own the country when the Middle, North & South actually does?!

And so too, my civic duty votes went for the winners in my state…Who’d you cast your ballots for?

I don’t vote, but I’ll SAY I vote for the winners - works for me

Wish I could do that with the horses and lottery pics - then I’d really have something, eh?!!

Kinda like saying I voted for the one telling the truth and cares about whats good for the People! ::slight_smile: :o I voted for SUPERMAN!!!

Thanks, PB!

T’was another write-in vote for me!

Yay!!

Rock on, yo!!

I think I voted for the ‘best fibber’! ;D

What? you think politicians lie? surely not? ;D

Only when their lips are moving, H-Rod; only when their lips are moving! :stuck_out_tongue:

“Economical with the truth” I think they call it ;D

H-Rod:

You forgot the most important part of that statement. To wit:

“Economical with the truth…” Maybe, yes! “Economical with OUR Money!” No, never!

Found this to help better explain it all. Enjoy!!

Cows & Politics Explained

A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

AN AMERICAN REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

AN AMERICAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk.

A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them World-Wide.

A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. They are mad. They die. Pass the shepherd’s pie, please.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don’t know where they are. You break for lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.

A BRAZILIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You enter into a partnership with an American corporation. Soon you have 1000 cows and the American corporation declares bankruptcy.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship both of them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported on them.

AN ISRAELI CORPORATION: There are these two Jewish cows, right? They open a milk factory, an ice cream store, and then sell the movie rights. They send their calves to Harvard to become doctors. So, who needs people?

AN ARKANSAS CORPORATION: You have two cows. That one on the left is kinda cute.

I love that one SPD!

I make it a rule not to talk religion or politics with people. I can comment on happenings, and talk about what outcome I might see of a situation. But I never talk to others about my opinions, because it’s simply not productive. Either you’re of the same opinion and you end up jerking eachother of, or you disagree and neither will change opinion because the other protagonized.

“economical with money”

Pay your taxes!!!
The Government can waist it more efficiently than you can!!!

Doing some research for another post came across this:

“Sarah Palin has been sighted wearing an “I Shot Bullwinkle” T-Shirt. The Moose have retaliated by putting a bounty on Sarah Palin’s rack.”

Works for me! Eye luvs Palin! And why wouldn’t I? She has my favorite lady name of all time!! :smiley:

Moose, Mooses, or Meese? Which is it?
If you order one, you just say, “I’d like to order one moose. While you’re at it, send me another one too.” No spelling errors.

The only political observation I’ll make is that several times in this country…all through our history…the Demopublicans and Republicrats have shifted positions and become each other several times. The more things stay different, the more they become the same…sorta.
The hurrieder they go, the behinder they get.
Life just gets curiouser and curiouser.
We don’t need political humor and satire. The politicians are providing that for free…well we are paying them, aren’t we? We could hire a bunch of Rich Little’s a lot cheaper now that I think about it. And the politicians never know how to end a joke. They just keep it going and going and going…
Didn’t Will Rogers say, “When I make a joke, it’s funny. When Congress makes a joke, it’s a law.”
