A "Spring" Egg Hunt? Really?
This "politically correct" crap is getting out of hand! Christmas isn’t the only holiday too hot to handle for school districts. Easter, another holiday rooted in Christian faith, is now being marginalized by governmental entities.
School districts and cities across America are holding “Spring egg hunts” and similar events, frequently omitting the word “Easter” from calendars and public announcements. Consider these:
• On March 16th, Flat Rock Elementary School in Anderson, South Carolina is holding a "Community Egg Hunt."
• West Shore School District will be holding its "PTO Egg Hunt" on March 16th.
• New York’s East Meadow Schools will be holding its "Spring Egg Hunt" on March 19.
• The Prospect Heights Public Library District in Illinois is holding its "Spring Egg Hunt" on March 26th.
• California’s Manhattan Beach Unified School District has its "Spring Egg Hunt" in late March.
• The City of Upland, California will hold its "Spring Egg Hunt" March 30. There are many, many more examples.
They’re detaching "Easter" from "egg hunts"? "Culturally sensitive" bureaucrats are further secularizing America by wiping Christian names off traditional community events. Really?
Like Christmas, Easter has become increasingly commercialized. Continuing to embrace the Christian rooting, we’re remember the real reason for the holidays.
I guess we'll just have to eliminate Ramadan, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah celebrations. That's politically correct, as well.
The News As I See It: A man in England has created a car that runs on coffee. What a genius ! Let's pick a liquid that costs even more money than gasoline.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) If a state trooper asks, "You drinking?", the correct answer is not, "You buying?" 2) Now that I’m older, my memory is a mighty fortress. Nothing penetrates it. 3) It is hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial cost and blame it on the cost of living. 4) Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give their vacuum one more chance? 5) I have all the money I'll ever need - if I die by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of Tampax and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?" The boy replied, "Eight."
The man continued, "Do you know how these are used?" The boy replied, "Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They are for my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. He can't do either one."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: One day a teacher was teaching religion, when she asked the class, "What part of your body do you think goes up to heaven first?" Two children rose their hand. One was little Johnny. Hesitant to pick on him she chose little Mary. Mary answered, "I think your heart goes first because, that's were your emotions of love are." The teacher said, "Very interesting. Mary."
Seeing no one else had their hand raised but Johnny, she finally called on him. Johnny said, "I think your feet go up first." Confused but relieved the teacher said, "Why is that?" Johnny replied, "Once when I walked in my parents room, I saw my mom with her feet in the air saying, "Oh God! If it hadn't been for Dad on top of her holding her down, she'd be in heaven"
Little Johnny had a cursing problem and his father was getting tired of it. He decided to ask his shrink what to do. The shrink said, "Since Johnny's birthday is coming up, you should ask Johnny what he wants for his birthday. If he curses while he tells you his wish, leave a pile of dog poop in place of the gift or gift he requests."
Two days before his birthday, Johnny's father asked him what he wanted. Johnny answered, "I want a damn teddy-bear laying right beside me when I wake up and when I go outside I want to see a damn bike leaning against the damn garage."
The day of his birthday, Little Johnny woke up and rolled over into a pile of dog poop. Confused, he walked outside and saw a huge pile of dog poop by the garage. Johnny walked back inside with a curious look on his face. The next day, his friend asked, "What did you get for your birthday?" Johnny replied, "I think I got a dog, but I can't find the son-of-a-bitch!"
That's it for today, my little munchkins. Remember, the big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money usually costs a lot less. I'm going over to AREA 51 for some drinks and karaoke.
That's it for now. Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
