    I hate to wonder, but Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover never secretly brewed nor drank beer during their tenures at the time of Prohibition, did they?

    Sober, he was the best president since Lincoln; drunk, he was the best in the last 75 years. May the Lord straighten out your thinking.

    A team of astronomers have been preparing for a meteor shower for weeks. When the day of the spectacle came, onlookers looked up to the sky, but saw nothing different. When reporters confronted the head astronomer about this blunder, embarrassed, he responded “No comet.”

    That would be an amazing sight, if you didn’t have to be in Louisiana, Arkansas, or Mississippi to see it.

    If I remember rightly, Jefferson made wine and Washington made whiskey.

    I’m pretty sure I read at the time that Jimmy Carter brewed a batch when home brewing was legalized in the late Seventies.

    The Moon of course has no brightness of its own, acting like a big mirror reflecting a small amount of the Sun’s light onto us romantics here on Earth.

    Take care, may Flat Earth Society member George “If The Earth Were Round I Would Be Able To See My Own Back With No Mirror” Wankord be with you, and gesundheit.

    It is surprising that the sculpture is limestone, since that type of material erodes much more easily than other material.

    At the time, those statues were selling for 50 Canaanite cents

    Years ago I was traveling late at night and on a country road. All of a sudden the sky got bright and I thought I was passing a street light and was confused because it wasn’t in the city. Looked up and it was a bright meteor flashing through the sky.

    Chico Marx,the “Italian Brother” had a fondness for high-stakes card g ames. One day in the 1920’s,he dropped $1,200.00to the f amous newspaper columnist Heywood Broun.

    Chico had only $18 in cash on him,so he wrote Broun a check.Itbounced.Broun was angry,of course.

    Chico says—“A mere small oversight.Try the check again tomorrow.But not before noon”

    So Broun does that—-the check bounces again.“I got to the bank at 5 minutes after noon!”,yells Broun.

    “Sorry”,says Chico,“that was too late”.

    Statues, volcanoes, clues of the Raleigh settlers, my ancestors the Choctaw kings. Much lies beneath us. I often wonder with awe.

    The best president? REALLY?

    He cut Military spending, cut V.A. funding, weakend the economy, gas prices were high, (not as much as now, but high). Affordable health care? What a joke. My wife was on it. Every year we had to pay more than the year before. At the end of the year we had to pay the government back for the supplement. I couldn’t afford to put my wife on the insurance that the company had, because it was to high.

    So you want to tell everyone that he was the best?

    Your full of crap, he was NOT the best.Reagan was better than what we’ve had in a long time.

    Canaanite goddess? Interesting — polytheism in “The Promised Land.” Then along comes Moses, quoting the God of Abraham, “You will have no strange gods before me.”
