LTG (Ret) Sanchez’s Speech

Posted in Politics on October 13th, 2007

On October 12, 2007 LTG (Ret) Ricardo S. Sanchez gave an address to the military reporters and editors at a luncheon in Washington D.C.. Since then the US media has made a big story of how his speech was a rant against the Bush administration. As is all too common in today’s partisan and agenda driven “journalism” outlets they have both slanted the truth and chosen to only report on part of it.

I’m not going to include excerpts from LTG (Ret) Sanchez’s speech in this post. Doing so, given the nature of his address, would be committing the same transgression the main stream media has.

Please read the Full Transcript of LTG (Ret) Ricardo S. Sanchez’s speech and form you own opinions.

My Brother-In-Law

Posted in Humor on October 13th, 2007

For some a government sponsored or run healthcare system may not be needed. I hope you enjoy this bit of humor!

Mr. Smith was brought to Mercy Hospital (a Catholic hospital), and taken quickly in for coronary surgery.The operation went well and, as the groggy man regained consciousness, he was reassured by a Sister of Mercy, who was waiting by his bed.

“Mr. Smith, you’re going to be just fine,” said the nun, gently patting his hand. “We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?”

“No, I’m not,” the man whispered hoarsely.

“Then can you pay in cash?” persisted the nun.

I’m afraid I cannot, Sister.”

“Well, do you have any close relative?” the nun questioned sternly.

“Just my sister in New Mexico,” he volunteered. “But she’s a humble spinster nun.”

“Oh, I must correct you, Mr. Smith. Nuns are not spinster – they are married to God.”

“Wonderful,” said Mr. Smith. “In that case, please send the bill to my brother-in-law.”

This wonderful bit of humor is from Insurance Samachar.
