Tony - NOTHING.  I just C&P'ed as usual here. 

I noticed the Lord and Taylor piece did not come through though.  I guess it is all in how they are sent to me.  Will print out latest Manual later.  Printer in Library Annex is down and I can't send to Library Printer.  Glad something finally worked.

Joe, Try storing your pics in your pictures folder then upload here it as an attachment. And these days you can add attachments to your old postings. That should keep you busy for a while!

Be well, do good work, and keep in touch!

Initially, I read your response as a successful post on my part.  Sorry for all the grief there.

No need to be text only. Just find a way to post your pics differently.

Bro. Joe:


Save the attachment to a folder such as my documents, or my pictures, or make up a folder just for these forwards..just remember where you put it. (on the bottom of the e-mail, it gives you an option to read, save, delete) you want to save it.


On the bottom of the thread on this Board there is a statement that says manage  attachments. click on it...a box will pop up with about 4 or 5 lines to  the right of each line there is the word browse, click on it, go to the folder where you saved the attachment, when you find it, click on it, then press open, go back to the box with the four or 5 lines, in the top line will be the URL that you opened, look at the bottom of that pop up it will say  upload, click on upload,it will then appear in your post.


I hope this will help..cutting & pasting will not do shows that you have posted it because it's on YOUR hard drive,,but no one else can see it.


Good Luck...

Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die. This is so priceless,
and so easy to see happening, customer service being what it is today.

A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February and
March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and then added
late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00,
now is somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to Citibank:

Family Member: "I am calling to tell you that she died in January."

Bank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still

Family Member: "Maybe, you should turn it over to collections."

Bank: "Since it is two months pas t due, it already has been."

Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"
> > >
Bank: "Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to
the credit bureau, >maybe both!"

Family Member: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"

Bank: "Excuse me?"

Family Member: "Did you just get what I was telling you - the part
about her being dead?"

Bank: "Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor."

Supervisor gets on the phone:

Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you, she died in January."

Bank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still

Family Member: "You mean you want to collect from her estate?"

Bank: (Stammer) "Are you her lawyer?"

Family Member: "No, I'm her great nephew." (Lawyer info given)

Bank: "Could you fax us a certificate of death?"

Family Member: "Sure." (fax number is given)

After they get the fax:

Bank: "Our system just isn't set-up for death. I don't know what more I can
do to help."

Family Member: "Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just
keep billing her. I don't think she will care."

Bank: "Well, the late fees and charges do still apply."

Family Memb er: "Would you like her new billing address?"

Bank: "That might help."

Family Member: " Odessa Memorial Cemetery , Highway 129, Plot Number

Bank: "Sir, that's a cemetery!"

Family Member: "What do you do with dead people on your planet?"

After living what I felt was a "decent" life, my time on earth came to the end. The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house.

The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table. As I looked around I saw the "prosecutor." He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes. He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room I couldn't take my eyes off of Him. As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, "Let us begin."

The prosecutor rose and said, "My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell." He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and in the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank.

I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about. As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all. I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I'd done?

Satan finished with a fury and said, "This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise."

When it was His turn, my Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.. As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty. 

I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior. He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, "Hi, Dad," and then He turned to address the court. 

"Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished."  Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, "However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine." My Lord continued with, "His name is written in the book of life and no one can snatch him from Me. Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy." 

As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, "There is nothing else that needs to be done. I've done it all." 

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips.. "This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed." 

As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, "I won't give up, I will win the next one."

I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, "Have you ever lost a case?" Christ lovingly smiled and said, "Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you."

This is TOO good!

5 million of our older Americans have not signed up yet for their

Medicare, Part D, drug plan------they are old and confused.

We are NOT going to grant them an extension.

However, 12 million illegal aliens are in our country and we are

Going to allow them to stay, protest, procreate, receive support

Monies, attend schools, avoid paying income taxes, have our

Teachers take 300 hours of ESL(English as a Second Language)

Training at our expense, etc.



If it ticks you off, pass it on!!

Don't forget to pay your taxes......

12 million illegal aliens are depending on you!

While not as strident as a lot of things I have seen about illegals let me point out some things that were left out:
1) Illegal aliens are not lazy. They do a LOT of work all of which was left begging by locals (legals)
2) If their children were NOT in school, where would they be and how ignorant would they be when they grew up? Both would be OUR problems.
3) Our economy would have major negative impact without them.
4) They are a burden on our social services only to the extent that they have no choices....they sure can't afford health insurance.
5) They are good people and would make great citizens.

Now, the other side of the coin equally valid:
1) They are not "undocumented immigrants". This is a word game that hides the fat they are  trespassing  and illegally so.This is like saying they left thier papers at home.  It is like calling a guy who steals your car "an untitled owner"
2) Children born in the USA regardless of the fact that they did so by illegally being in the USA to begin with get unquestioned citizenship. (a loop hole that deserately needs to be closed) These are called "anchor babies".
3) There are likely 200-300 million other people who would also make excellent hardworking citizens, many of which actually are educated, but they wait in line for legal immigration.
4) As pointed out in the post, "illegals" pay no taxes.

I am always amazed at how both sides of this issue seem to want to ignore the valid points of the other side. As you see I am in the middle on it and it is very lonely here. I would propose:
1) NO AMNESTY, no "earned legality" , the only earned legality is legal and you don't put yourself ahead of legal applicants by demonstrating your good citizenship by committing a crime as your first act.
2) Visiting worker program with teeth. This would be administered by the IRS which would levy a large tax on the workers via withholding to be returned to the worker upon thier return to thier native land (less taxes).
3) Visiting workers do NOT bring thier families.This will be tough for those already here in the USA for enforcement.
4) Automatic USA citizenship will be confered ONLY on children whose mother is legally in the country to begin with.
5) Once the guest worker program is in place, beefed up immigration staffs will enforce employer compliance. It is a lot easier to hire a "guest worker" than and illegal so they start complying.

I am tired of one group trying to say it is about "immigration" and that they are "immigrants" andy more than a burglar is a "guest" in your house. I am tired of the otherside who demonize good people and say that they are here for social services instead of work. Both obfuscate the truth and neither side helps the solution.

My 2 cents.

Do You or Anyone you Know like  a job...


picking fruits & vegetables in 100 degree weather paid piecemeal


washing dirt  & crud off someone else's plate for $2.00 an hr.


cleaning merd from public toilets for $3.00 an hr


sewing the clothes YOU proudly wear in the most horrendous working conditions & being paid piecemeal


If so......the line forms to the right....


If all the illegal aliens stopped work for ONE day, this wonderful country of ours...would shut down.


We are spending millions on a war, that sees no end in sight...

put some of those funds to a GOOD purpose..find a viable solution for the illegial alien problem.

Just to add perspective....I have never been able to pay a day worker less than $10/hr. tax free. That was 20 years ago. Now I have guys turning thier noses up at $15 due to scarcity of laborers. I do not know if they are legal or not. One does not take social security numbers for guys hired for the day.

Donna's comments are part of the picture...I add a little more. The problem is both a problem of abuse by and abuse of illegal aliens. The problem is that everyone is playing it for votes instead of trying to get a real and fair solution.

I am not sure what gauls me more...those that seek special rights to violate the law for hispanics and pervert immigration to include invaders or those that demonize them as lazy and evil. Neither side seems interested in dealing in the truth, but that is what dominates the discussion.

Let me add a personal touch to this thread...


Someone very near & dear to me is currently working as a PM in Miami.  It's a temporary project.  It's a government contract & supposedly everyone on the job got security clearance.  The GC is Portuguese, the workers are Cuban.  The job is slowing was supposed to last six weeks,  that was October 23rd..  He's begging the guys to please work so he can come home.  Friday he found out the truth..The GC has not paid his workers in three weeks (even thou he was given seed money for the project)...their all supposed to be legal.  He couldn't believe it,  especially since I kept telling him how important Saturday was to Hispanics ( The Feast Of The Three Kings).  He cleaned out his wallet ( he only had $100 cash on him) the workers gave it to one guy..he was the one with the kids.  He said it was an extremely humbling experience.  These guys went thru the holidays w/o a pay check.  Now their supposed to be legal..can you imagine if they weren't????  Here is a perfect example of an immigrant taking advantage of another immigrant.


The government needs to do something & fast....
