The IRS decided to audit Grandpa, and summoned him to the IRS office. The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.

The auditor said, “Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I’m not sure the IRS finds that believable.”

“I’m a great gambler, and I can prove it,” says Grandpa. “How about a demonstration?”

The auditor thinks for a moment and says, “OK. Go ahead.”

Grandpa says, “I’ll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.”

The auditor thinks a moment and says, “It’s a bet.”

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor’s jaw drops.

Grandpa says, “Now, I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.”

The auditor can tell Grandpa isn’t blind, so he takes the bet.

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye. The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa’s attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

“Want to go double or nothing?” Grandpa asks. “I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.”

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can’t make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor’s desk.

The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. But Grandpa’s attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.

“Are you OK?” the auditor asks.

“Not really,” says the attorney. “This morning, when Grandpa told me he’d been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you’d be happy about it.”

Don’t mess with old people!

    President Obama walks into a local bank in Chicago to cash a check. He is surrounded by Secret Service agents. As he approaches the cashier he says, “Good morning Ma’am, could you please cash this check for me?”

    “It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?”

    “Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am former President Barack Obama, the President of the United States of AMERICA !!!!”

    “Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of 9/11, impostors, forgers, money laundering, and bad mortgage underwriting not to mention requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.”

    “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”

    “I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”

    “I am urging you, please, to cash this check. I need to buy a gift for Michelle for Valentine’s Day”

    “Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into one of our bank branches without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a coffee cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check.”
    “Another time, Andre Agassi came into the same place without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot where as the tennis ball landed in a coffee cup. With that shot we cashed his check.
    So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States?”

    Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, “Honestly, my mind is a total blank…there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I don’t have a clue.”

    “Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?”

Among other things, jet engines are more efficient at higher altitudes while turboprops are more efficient at lower altitudes.  Since the smaller regional flights don't generally fly at the high altitudes, at least for long, turboprops are more efficient.

Spin Zone / Re: Why does Trump say stupid shit like this?
« on: January 17, 2020, 02:18:54 PM »
I watched the clip. Give me a break. Can no one recognize Trump demonstrating absurdity by being absurd?  He knows exactly what he’s doing, and “love” has nothing to do with it.

Trump has tamed Kim. No other president has done that. He has done so with his whip and with a pat on the head. He knows you never turn your back on a dangerous animal, but you also don’t need to constantly use the whip either.

It’s a shame that I have to explain this.
Another aspect of Trump is that he gets everything all out there. Nothing is untouched. He is the most transparent President in history. And his willingness to call shit out is causing a tsunami of honesty and citizenry speaking up to leaders throughout the world, from Brexit to Hong Kong and Iran. He points out the failures of past administrations to address the inner cities, unemployment, bad trade deals, etc. so even Latinos and Blacks are waking up.

Not saying he’s perfect, but he’s what the world needs now.

Does she get to leave the country, or does she just disappear?

It's not like that place is Arkansas

Mitch McConnell just gave a great speech on the floor of the Senate.  If you can find a YouTube of it, take a listen.

Spin Zone / Re: So, Giuliani was the puppet master
« on: December 17, 2019, 09:36:13 AM »
True.  So why is he giving interviews about what he's doing?  I miss the good old days when lawyers didn't talk about what they did for their clients.

But that doesn't make it better.  If he was working for Trump, then he went to Ukraine to find dirt on the Bidens for the purpose of exposing them.  That's absolutely legitimate, he can do that.

But now you cannot convince me that Trump didn't ask Zelensky to investigate as part of the same thing, exactly because he had already sent his personal representative to Ukraine to do the same thing.  That requires doublethink, that Trump was acting on a personal basis in sending Giuliani to do this, but he was acting out of patriotic motivation when talking to Zelensky? 

Now you'd have to say that Trump sent Giuliani to Ukraine out of patriotic motivation and that dog don't hunt.

 You're ignoring the much, much larger picture here and accepting the MSM narrative as fact.

It's been known within the establishment that Biden, Kerry and a few others have been milking the Ukraine for financial gain, and using taxpayer dollars to accomplish this.   By virtue that the President sets foreign policy, and has taken an oath to uphold our laws, he has every right to make sure foreign aid is appropriate, and to investigate (or have investigated) when corruption is involved with that foreign aid.

 Please go read the transcript of the phone call.  Please go read the depositions and testimonies of the witnesses in the house impeachment inquiry.   If you do, you will see none of this was politically motivated.  None.

 The establishment is freaking out because the lights have been turned on, and they are being exposed in corruption using foreign aid, which is a criminal offense (several actually).

  The President of the US (Whoever it is) has the right to investigate how our money (taxpayers) is being spent in foreign countries. 

 Ukraine is a hot bed of corruption.  We have been sending millions upon millions of our dollars in "aid" in which we now know huge sums of that have been involved in various corruption.

 The whole "Ukraine Hoax" was started because President Trump wanted to find out what was going on in Ukraine before we committed even more money to them.  This set off alarms within the establishment because too many of them are involved in the corruption.  Names like Biden, Kerry, Clinton, Schiff, Pelosi and even several prominent republicans.   The last thing they want is their personal piggy bank called Ukraine to be done away with, or worse yet for it to be exposed what their involvement is.

 Same thing with Afghanistan.  Yet another corrupt country that our leaders in the establishment have long been milking away billions of our dollars for their personal gain.

 That's what's driving this whole race to impeach bullshit.  The lights have been turned on and the roaches are scattering.   And they know if Trump gets a second term even more of their corruption is going to come to light.

Spin Zone / Re: Democrats try to restore a tax cut for the rich
« on: December 15, 2019, 07:17:34 AM »
The limit on the federal deduction makes local taxes that much more painful for the wealthy, so high tax states will see an increased exodus of high income earners. These are the same people who create or own businesses, and they are likely to take them with them.

So wouldn't these high tax states need to look at tax reform, and even start controlling their spending?   Wouldn't it also benefit these high tax states to develop tax reforms to attract business, rather than force them to leave?

 Right now there is an exodus from California and NY to states like Tennessee, Florida and Texas.  It's not hard to figure out why.

Rashida Tlaib initially blamed the shooting on White Suprenacists.  Oops:

Isn't Tlaib great?  Hates America, hates Whites, including Jews, and lies, and/or speaks before she knows the facts.  Just like Obama used to do.

This is all an attempt by the Republicans to overturn the results of the 2018 election and expel the Democrats from controlling the House.

Wow. So this will be on cnn too, no?

Maybe the FBI will do a 5am raid of her home with SWAT teams.  And maybe they'll tip off CNN?    Ya think?

The president does not control the department of justice.  It must follow the laws duly enacted.  Historically, both parties have treated the justice department as an independent branch and avoided putting much public pressure on it.  Breaking with that is one more way that Trump has damaged our republican democracy.
The Justice Department is part of the Executive Branch of government.  It must ENFORCE laws as written by the Legislative Branch.  But the Legislative Branch is not immune from its own laws.

Gee... which president used the FBI to spy on a presidential candidate and later on a sitting president?

Odd how "donations" to the Clinton Foundation plummeted when Felonious lost the 2016 election.

Anybody with eyes, and half a brain can see that the Clinton Foundation was/is purely a money laundering operation to finance the Clintons fun, profit and politics.  The fact that they lost $16.5 Million in 2018 since Hillary LOST to Trump (lol!) should tell even the deaf, dumb, and blind something.
