JUST MARCH ON IN (For a new life!)” 


"CLASSMATES"    #1      

CLASSMATES, before we get to all your articles and what is on your mind, I thought it might be good to hear “Comments from a CNN reporter & a Navy Seal (October 29, 2018)”       #2

The Tax System Explained by Beer”       #3
Contributed by Maggie (Tuba) Horwitz   [Better than the actual tax explanation!]

“The Blonde And The Cow”     #4     
Contributed by a Classmate
[Here is one for ladies, especially all the blondes out there who have suffered through years of harassment.  Hope you like it.]


A blonde city girl named Amy marries a Wisconsin farmer.  One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, the farmer says to her, 'The artificial insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today, so I drove a nail into the 2 by 4 just above the cow's stall in the barn.  Please show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?'

The farmer leaves for the fields. After a while, the artificial insemination man arrives and knocks on the front door.  Amy takes him down to the barn.  They walk along the row of cows and when Amy sees the nail, she tells him,  'This is the one right here.'

The man, assuming he is dealing with an airhead blond, asks, 'Tell me lady, 'cause I'm dying to know.  How would you know this is the right cow to be bred?'


'That's simple," she said.  "By the nail that's over its stall,' she explains very confidently.
Laughing rudely at her, the man says, 'And what, pray tell, is the nail for?'


Amy turns to walk away and says sweetly over her shoulder...  “I guess it's to hang your pants on.”  [It's nice to see a blond win once in awhile.]

“WHY SHOULD I CARE”     #15
Contributed by Edward Dumke
[Some very interesting stats.]

A friend sent me these statistics from the government:

"Hell, I live on the West Coast why should I care if workers in the Rust Belt are now finding jobs which were lost and were not supposed to ever come back?  And then they told me that Black and Hispanic unemployment is at an all time historic low.  So what, I am not African American or Hispanic.

Contributed by A Classmate Living In CA
[Great read, especially if you live in California!]

 Every governor wants to raise taxes. Several states are basically flat broke.  Check out the numbers for California.   We've known for some time many illegals don't pay taxes, because they work for cash, yet they get government freebies like food stamps, phones, school, medical, utilities, rent, etc.  We are taking care of illegals better than American citizens & our Veterans in actual need of assistance.  State by state detailed Info-graphics on how much illegals burden you and your state:
