    The old adage, "Never judge a book by it's cover"


    Very interesting....

    Question 1:
    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three
    Who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
    Syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

    Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.
    Question 2:
    It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
    Here are the facts about the three candidates.
    Candidate A:
    Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists.
    He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10
    Martinis a day.
    Candidate B:
    He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
    College and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening..
    Candidate C:
    He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks
    an occasional beer and never committed adultery.
    Which of these candidates would be our choice?
    Decide first... No peeking, and then scroll down for the response.

    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

    And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:
    If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.
    Pretty interesting isn't it?
    Makes a person think before judging someone.
    Amateurs ... Built the ark.
    Professionals ... Built the Titanic
    You gotta pass this on.....2 TOUGH QUESTIONS.

    wow... hindsight really IS 20/20...

    extended the depression 10 years
    was more Obama than Obama
    KNEW about Japan actually declaring war on us BEFORE Pearl Happened
    was a staunch supporter of racial eugenics
    did all the OTHER crap you mentioned

    not electing him... no great loss to me

    Winston Churchill...
    after Great Britain had a subsistence-level dole for 40 years, he was instrumental in making it less advantageous to take an entry-level job than it was stay on welfare... after he came back into power as PM for the Opposition Party

    Hitler... :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:
    what a scumbag, but he DID: take a desperate, bancrupt, and broken people into one of the most technologically advanced, disciplined and deadly military forces on the planet... in a handful of years

    I had the opportunity to teach this lesson once. I was working as a salesman at a Jeep dealership in Anchorage way back when. A real scraggly man in dirty clothes, beard came onto the lot and was looking at some new Grand Cheokees. None of the 'professional' salesmen would go meet the guy, they were just cracking jokes about the 'trash on the lot'.
    Me, being a broke newlywed and new at the sales game, went out and said hello.
    Short story....he was fresh off the plane from Dutch Harbor off a crab boat, paid CASH for a $47000 Jeep. I also made a friend and a great commission.

    Beethoven-I don't think my world would be much different. Take Edward South, he came up with the inexpensive cure for most cancers in 1996, if his tramp mother hadn't aborted him, after her fling with an eminent pathologist. Can't miss him if he never had a chance to be born, so if we didn't have Beethoven, we couldn't miss him...

    Now for the three SOB's...

    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    Was a dirty socialist SOB, who helped start the United States down on a path toward it's destruction. He extended the Great Depression several years creating entitlements and programs we couldn't afford. He seized gold from private ownership. He ensured that we got into World War II too early, ensuring the Soviet Union wasn't destroyed by the Germans, ushering in the Cold War. He possibly betrayed us by allowing Pearl Harbor. Too bad he wasn't aborted.

    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.

    Was an SOB. I like him, but he definitely made some hard decisions. England needed him or they would have wound up a socialist country where people couldn't speak their minds and didn't have a right to defend themselves, sooner.

    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

    No vegetarian ever did anything worthwhile and they're usually people with some really sick behaviors. Look at the other famous vegetarian, Gandhi, who liked to sleep with children!!! Children!

    lifestyle choices like being a Vegan don't bother me so much as the person that becomes a Militant Vegan & then tries to force their brand of superior morality upon the rest of us "for our own good" of course :mad:

    :gaah: HEY! Michelle Obama! A little MORE time on the Stairmaster and a little LESS time on Sesame Street trying to turn my Godchildren into guilt-ridden reticent appologists, just so that you can feel better about spending $$$MILLIONS$$$ on personal trips! :gaah:

    Well, 'Dolf did create the Autobahn, leading to our major express highways of today and our 'car culture', and he supported Ferdy Porche's dream of The People's Car - the venerable VW Beetle. Just sayin'....... :D

    Thank Goodness Dolf was a dumb ex-army Corporal with no grasp of strategy and tactics, and no respect for the Navy and the Airforce, or we'd all be goose-stepping today.

    A LOT of our considered 'Great Men' were really barstages with God trips going on.




    Even old Teddy Roosevelt

    Imagine if Einstein, Edison or Billy Gates had been aborted. Our technology would maybe have developed quite differently!

    If Bill Gates had been aborted, then Paul Allen would have had a better partner who wouldn't have brought out the fiasco of Windows Vista and the lame Windows 7.

    Or we'd all be using Macs, virus's would be something we avoided during flu season, and we'd be able to down load things in seconds!
