"I'm 85 AndTired"  
I'm 85. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.  
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.  
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honour"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to. 
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..  
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.  
I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?  
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.  
I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.  
I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.  
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 85. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my grand daughters and their children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

I think the majority of us understand just what this gentleman is defining.  He hit the old nail right on its head and has driven it all the way home. I too worry about my children, grandchildren and all the great and greater grandchildren to come.  I pray God will take us back to where we should be and they can all grow up in the same kind or even bewtter place than we. The Bible says if enough of us ask,  he will. Do we have enough Christians left to get this done?  That is the 'trillion' dollar question!
 
"Two Mexicans And A Trucker"  
Two Mexicans are riding a bicycle on a road about 15 miles outside of Lafayette, La.   One of the bike's tires goes flat and they start hitching a lift back into town.  
A friendly trucker stops to see if he can help and the Mexicans ask him for a ride. He tells them they can ride in the trailer if they could fit in with 20,000 bowling balls he is hauling.  
They manage to squeeze themselves and their bike into the back and the Driver shuts the doors and gets on his way.  
Wanting to make up time the Trucker speeds up.  
Sure enough a blonde cop pulls him over for speeding.  
The officer asks the driver what he is carrying, to which the driver jokingly replies "Mexican eggs."  
The Blond Lady Cop obviously doesn't believe this so she takes a look in the trailer.  
She opens the back door and shocked, quickly shuts it and locks it.  
She calls for immediate backup from headquarters, the Border Patrol and the Swat Team.  
The dispatcher asks what emergency she has that requires so many officers.  
 
"I stopped a Tractor-Trailer with 20,000 Mexican eggs in it...  
Two have 'hatched' and they've already stolen a bicycle."

The reason Politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would 'hate' to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.

Until the morrow.
 
     
Dear God, 
If it be thy will, 
please keep our country safe from harm. There are those who seek to destroy it. We need your help, your guidance,  your love and your protection at this difficult time 
in our lives and that of our beloved country. Be with us all in this time of need. We ask and we pray in Jesus name. 
Amen
