Ronda Rousey in nothing but a smile




A Mexican (an undocumented Democrat), a Black (a documented Democrat), a Muslim and a Redneck were walking together on a beach when the Black stumbled over a bottle in the sand. He picked up the bottle, rubbed the sand off it, and a Genie appeared.
“I can only grant four wishes,” the Genie said. “Since there are four of you, you may have a wish apiece.” Pointing at the Black, he said, “Since you found the bottle, you may have the first wish.”
The Black thought for a moment then said, “I wish for a fleet of ships so that I can gather all my people and take them back to our homeland, Africa .” Poof! It was done! Thousands of ships appeared on the skyline.
The Mexican said, “I weesh for enough Cheby peekups to take all my peoples back to our homeland, May-he-co!” Poof! It was done! Row after row of Chevrolet pickups appeared on the beach.
The Muslim said, “I wish for a hundred thousand camels to take all of my people away from this horrible country loaded with infidels so we can live in peace in Muslim countries and serve Allah.” Poof! It was done! A hundred thousand camels suddenly appeared on the beach.
Turning to the Redneck, the Genie asked, “And what is your
The Redneck watched as the loaded pickups began moving toward the border, then looked out to sea and watched the loaded ships sailing out into the sunset, then he looked at all of the Muslims getting on top of the camels and riding off.
The Redneck said, “Just give me a Bud Lite. It doesn’t get any
better than this!”

A DEA officer at a ranch in Texas

A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas, and talked with an old rancher.
He told the rancher, ”I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.”
The rancher said, “Okay , but don’t go in that field over there….,” as he pointed out the location.
The DEA officer got red in the face and exploded, ”Mister! I have the authority!”
Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher.
“See this badge?!  This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. On any land!!  No questions asked or answers given!! Do you understand?!!  HAVE I MADE MYSELF CLEAR?!!!!!!”
The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.
A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher’s big Santa Gertrudis bull.
With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety.
The officer was clearly terrified.
The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs.
“Your badge, show him your BADGE…….. !!!”

Busy with commuters, amid well-manicured lawns, walkways and convenience to Starbucks and Trader Joe's, 'The Archstone' complex next to the South San Francisco BART station would be an unlikely place for a prostitution ring.
Yet, as reported by the San Francisco Examiner on June 13, law enforcement busted a prostitution operation which was coordinated by a husband and wife team referred to as "Bob and Coco." The husband, Zhi Liu, age 49, was arrested. While wife, Wei Gou, age 51, was not present at the time of the raid. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe's office was pleased to tell this reporter on assignment for the Peninsula Progress, that bail for Liu was increased to $200,000. "This is a very serious case," said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti. When the Peninsula Progress called on Wednesday June 19, to inquire for more details, Guidotti noted that Liu was to attend hearing that afternoon. She explained why the case was serious. "This is not simply prostitution, said Guidotti, this involves human trafficking." She also noted that by increasing the bail, prosecutors seek to keep the suspect from taking flight in an attempt to leave the area.

We've all seen coverage in the news of the IRS scandal, but how many people know that the IRS will play a major role in ObamaCare, as the agency chosen to enforce the many taxes, regulations and mandates contained in the law?

Ami Horowitz went to Manhattan's famously liberal Upper West Side to find out exactly how much the locals know about the IRS and ObamaCare. The results are in, and frankly we don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a robot bird whose wings can flap independently of each other.
Called the "Robo Raven," the breakthrough engineering technology allows the robot to achieve any desired motion and to perform aerobatic maneuvers.
Developed by University of Maryland Professors S.K. Gupta and Hugh Bruck and their students, the robot birds could one day be used for reconnaissance and surveillance.
The final design enables a tiny video camera, can be launched from the ground, and can fly in winds up to 10 mph.
The micro air bird even fooled a local hawk, which attacked the robot in mid-flight on more than one occasion.

Obama Says Religious Schools Divisive

President Barack Obama angered some proponents of Catholic education during his visit to Northern Ireland this week when he told a Belfast audience that towns will remain divided "if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs." An article, which subsequently appeared in the Scottish Catholic Observer, carried the headline, "U.S. President Undermines Catholic Schools After Vatican Prefect Praised Them." The article said Obama "made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland," and quoted from recent remarks of the Vatican’s Archbishop Gerhard Müller, who had said that Catholic education was "a critical component of the Church." Dr. Matthew Bunson, senior correspondent for Our Sunday Visitor and author of the new book "Pope Francis," tells Newsmax the president should have chosen his words more carefully, and he pointed to the contribution that Catholic education has made to bringing about the 15-year-old peace in the once-troubled region. Ashley McGuire, a senior fellow with The Catholic Association, also viewed Obama's remarks as an attack on Catholic education. "Catholic education is a longstanding tradition and a gift to society at large," she said. "Why the president chose to attack that tradition is beyond comprehension and represents his continuing effort to relegate religion to the private sphere." Read Latest Breaking News

 How Much Do Bad Habits Cost?
A cigarette here, a few drinks there and choosing potato chips over baby carrots all add up. Indulging in vices is often portrayed as the fun part of life, but letting bad habits go unchecked can have a deleterious effect on your wallet -- not to mention your health.

But don't worry; you can change. A study by researchers at University College London in the United Kingdom shows that it takes a little more than two months on average to break a bad habit and form a new one.

The first step to kicking a bad habit is to understand exactly how it impacts you. Here's how a few of the most common bad habits wreak havoc on your budget every year. Bankrate shows how you can reverse the trend and amass some serious money instead by annually investing those funds in a long-term savings vehicle that returns a modest 6 percent a year on average.

Smoking cigarettes

Savings after 30 years of compounding interest: $201,994

Cigarettes retail for about $5 to $12 a pack, depending on where you live. But factor in increased medical expenses, insurance costs and the impact of secondhand smoke to society, and the real price increases dramatically. Researchers from Duke University and the University of South Florida estimate that, for a woman, the all-inclusive cost of smoking over a lifetime is $106,000; for a man, $220,000. This includes social costs imposed on others via Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Richard Kappers, director of marketing at Cigna, says smoking not only drives up life insurance costs by 20 percent and increases health insurance expenses, it can also impact your ability to qualify for either.

But renouncing the habit pays off. Quitting smoking at age 39 can reduce the "excess risk of death from any cause" by up to 90 percent, according to a January 2013 article in The New England Journal of Medicine, and can qualify you for the same insurance rates as nonsmokers, says Kappers.

"Generally, they want you to be tobacco-free for 12 months before you can get the nonsmoker rates," he adds.

It's difficult to put a price on smoking for an individual. Considering just the cost of the cigarettes themselves, smoking a pack a day at $7 a pack will leave you $2,555 lighter in the wallet per year. If you instead invest that amount annually, after 30 years, you will have amassed $201,994, assuming a 6 percent return.

Drinking alcohol

Savings after 30 years of compounding interest: $123,331

Unlike smoking, casual drinking won't drive up insurance costs. But heavy drinking can cause liver damage and other health issues, says CFP professional Anna Molin, an independent insurance agent with Huntington & Wheatsworth insurance and financial services firm in Towaco, N.J.

"They will do a blood and urine specimen (during insurance medical underwriting)," she says. "(Alcohol) is tested in there, same as drugs. That could increase your premium," though how much depends on the level of the damage.

Drinkers who get behind the wheel and land a conviction of a DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI, (driving while intoxicated) will also have to cough up around $10,000 in fines, bail, towing, insurance, legal fees, treatment and license reinstatement costs, according to the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

Drinking can still take a financial toll even if it's done in moderation. Consume five drinks per week at a cost of $6 per drink (budget more if you're swigging cocktails versus beer or wine), and you'll rack up a $1,560 tab by the end of the year. If you instead invest that amount annually, after 30 years, you will have amassed $123,331, assuming a 6 percent return.

Poor eating habits

Getty ImagesYearly cost: $432 to $4,879
Savings after 30 years of compounding interest: $34,153 to $385,725

More than 1 in 3 U.S. adults is obese and therefore more prone to obesity-related health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They're also prone to higher health and life insurance costs, medical expenses, food and clothing costs, decreased productivity, and lost wages from missing work.

A study by researchers at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., estimates that extra pounds cost the average overweight man $524 per year and the average overweight woman $432. For the obese, costs dramatically increase. GWU estimates that the annual cost of being obese in the United States is $2,646 for men and $4,879 for women.

Weight issues not only drive up costs; they can also prevent consumers from getting the coverage they need, says Kappers.

"Now you see diabetes and weight issues at the top of the reasons why people are getting declined (for life insurance coverage)," he says. "They're hand in hand."

"Human beings are simply wired to spend," says Jean Chatzky, author of eight personal finance books and head of the online financial literacy program Money School. "Our brains get a lot of pleasure out of rewards that we can have right now and very little, if any, pleasure out of waiting for things."

That may partly explain why the U.S. savings rate is currently a dismal 2.5 percent, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Research shows that overspending isn't just fun; it's easy to do without noticing. According to a survey from the life insurance and capital management company Country Financial, more than 1 in 5 respondents said they spend more than they earn for at least half the year, but only 9 percent classified themselves as living beyond their means.

"If it's a minor problem ... then track your spending for a little while. You'll see where the holes in your budget are and should be able to stop yourself," says Chatzky.

Keep in mind that overspending costs you in the long term, too. Exceed your paycheck by just $100 per month -- the equivalent of a modest date night -- and you'll rack up expenses of $1,200 per year.


Getty ImagesYearly cost: $600
Savings after 30 years of compounding interest: $47,435

We're wired to overspend, but we're also naturally inclined to put off things we don't want to do until it's too late. Witness the hordes who don't sign up for their 401(k) plans even though they get matching contributions from their employers. Even modest procrastination comes at a cost. Lose $50 monthly to an unused gym membership or grocery coupons that never got clipped, and you'll lose $600 per year.

"If the cost of procrastinating something is high enough, you won't do it," says Dean Karlan, an economics professor at Yale University and co-founder of the goal-setting site,

One way to avoid procrastinating, Karlan says, is to make the cost of skipping that to-do item so high that you won't avoid doing it. Sites such as stickK and apps such as GymPact allow procrastinators to attach a financial reward (or punishment) to their goals. But for incentives to work, Karlan says you have to want to change first.

"There is some needed self-reflection for any true behavior change," he says. "It doesn't have to be superdeep and intense, but there does need to be some 'aha!' moment."

One  to forward!
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the  Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
This will  take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it  on. This is an idea that we should address.
For too long we have  been too complacent about the workings of Congress.  The latest is to  exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that passed ... in all of its  forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is  above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican,  Independent or whatever . The self-serving must stop.
If each person  that receives this will forward it on to 15 people, in three days, most  people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one  proposal that really should be passed around.
Proposed 28th Amendment  to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies  to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the  Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that  applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally  to the citizens of the United States ..."

Kuala Lumpur based illustrator Tang Yau Hoong pairs his illustrations with a famous quotes

Famous Quotes are Paired with Clever Illustrations

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based illustrator Tang Yau Hoong has just released a brand new series where he pairs one of his older illustrations with a famous quote. A few years ago, we discovered Hoong and we quickly became fans after we saw his ability to cleverly incorporate negative space into many of his works. As he told us then, "I enjoy making illusion art because it has the ability to mislead us. We rely on sight in our lives and yet it is so fragile that we could easily be deceived by what we see."
In one of our favorite new prints, Hoong takes one of Steve Jobs' famous quotes, "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish" and illustrates it by putting two half eaten apples next to each other. Within the negative space, one can subtly make out Steve Jobs' silhouette.
As he tells us, "Most of them are old illustrations that I redrew to match the style I was looking for and the meaning of the corresponding quote. One day, I was browsing through old designs when I thought about giving them new life. Here is the result. Only the illustration of Steve Jobs' quote is brand new, which triggered the project."
If you enjoyed these posters, make sure to check out Evan Robertson's underlined book quote illustrations, here and here.

You can pick up these prints over at Hoong's shop.

Some Americans are starting to get pissed!

Some Americans are starting to get pissed! It's like when we were over in Germany back in the 70's. Old Hog Face used to tell us how we wouldn't stand a chance if the Russians came through the Fulda Gap. We Americans are soft, laying around the barracks all the time. The Russians trained 30 days a month, in the field, living in tents, crawling through the mud and dirt every day. Finally one day I told old Hog Face, "NO! You're wrong Top! The Russians are used to that. It's nothing to them. You take us Americans out of our warm barracks, out of our day rooms, away from our color TV, poolt tables, beer machines, etc. We're gonna be PISSED!!!! God help those Russians!"



Drafting Guys Over 60
This is funny & obviously written by a Former Soldier... New Direction for any war: Send to the Service Vets over 60!

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ass-backwards.

Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.

For starters, researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a month, leaving us more than 280,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry.' We are bad-tempered and impatient, and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10am. Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the hell. Besides, like I said, I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.

If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would be easier for old guys.. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however... I've been in combat and never saw a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start a conversation with a pretty girl.  He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.

Let us old guys track down those terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple million pissed off old farts with bad attitudes and automatic weapons, who know that their best years are already behind them.

HEY!! How about recruiting Women over menopause!!! You think MEN have attitudes??
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my God!!! If nothing else, put them on border patrol. They'll have it secured the first night!

Send this to all of your senior's in big type so they can read it.

One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in the back of his limousine when he saw two men eating grass by the road-side. He ordered his driver to stop, and he got out to investigate.

Why are you eating grass? he asked one man.

We don™t have any money for food, the poor man replied.

Oh, well, you can come with me to my house, instructed the lawyer.

But, sir, I have a wife and two children with me!

Bring them along! replied the lawyer.

He turned to the other man and said: You come with us, too.

But I have a wife and six children, the second man answered.

Bring them as well replied the lawyer.

They all climbed into the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine. Once underway, one of the poor fellows says: Sir you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.

The lawyer replied: Glad to do it. You™ll love my place; the grass is almost a foot tall.
