28th Amendment

New Amendment Proposed
At the present time there are 27 Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America. A recent email I received has proposed a new amendment, the

28th Amendment:

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.

“When the people fear their government,
there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Thomas Jefferson

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Today is December 15. Seventy-One years ago today I was born on my Mother’s Birthday. My Mother was a very special person and I have missed her very much since her death in 1974.

Quote of the Day
I miss thee, my Mother!  Thy image is still
The deepest impressed on my heart.

Joke of the Day

A pretty little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a number tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing FREE KITTENS.

Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her. Out of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man. "Hi there, little girl, I'm President Obama. What do you have in the basket?" he asked.

kit1 "Baby kittens", little Suzy said.

"And what kind of kittens are they?"

"Democrats," answered Suzy with a smile.

Obama was delighted. As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens. Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men agreed that the president should return the next day, and, in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk with her basket of "FREE KITTENS" when another motorcade pulled up, this time followed by vans from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.

Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy.

"Hello, again," he said, "Id love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."

kit2 "Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're Republicans."

Taken by surprise, the president stammered, “But … yesterday, you told me they were DEMOCRATS.”

Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know. But today, they have their eyes open."
