Sleep last Night?

Posted in My E-mail with tags , , , on May 10, 2010 by spikestl


Bed a little lumpy…?
Toss and turn any….?
Wish the heat was higher…?
Maybe the a/c…?
Had to go to the john…..?
Need a drink of water…. ?

Yes.. It is like that!     

Count your blessings, pray for them,

Talk to your Creator


The next time when…

The other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,


 you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,


 you’re served slightly warm food at the restaurant,


you’re sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,


the shower runs out of hot water, Think of them…

Protecting your freedom!  

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do                            

Something to pay tribute

To our fallen comrades so since we are part of the only

Marine Infantry Battalion left in  Iraq  the one way that we could

Think of doing that is by taking a picture of

Baker Company saying the way we feel.

It would be awesome if you could find a way to share

This with our fellow countrymen.

I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your

Papers to let the world know that


And are proud to serve our country.

Semper Fi   1st Sgt Dave Jobe.

The attached photo

was forwarded from one of the last U.S. Marine companies in Iraq  

They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the

folks back home know that they remember why they’re there and

that they remember those who’ve been lost….. 

Farm Kids

Posted in My E-mail on May 1, 2010 by spikestl

An Alberta farmer in his pickup, drove to a neighbor’s, and knocked at the door.

A boy, about 9, opened the door

“Is your Dad home?”

“No sir, he isn’t; he went to town.”

“Well, is your Mother here?”

“No sir, she went to town with Dad.”

“How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”

“No sir, He went with Mom and Dad.”

The rancher stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, and mumbling to himself.

“Is there anything I can do for you?

I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give dad a message.”

“Well,” said the rancher uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to your Dad.

It’s about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Suzie, pregnant.”‘

The boy thought for a moment.

“You would have to talk to Dad about that.

I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the hog, but I don’t know how much he charges for Howard.”

A man boarded a plane with six kids.

After they got settled in their seats a woman sitting across the aisle from him leaned over to him and asked,
“Are all of those kids yours ?”

He replied, ” No. I work for a condom company.
These are customer complaints. ”

Irish Viagra

Posted in My E-mail on March 2, 2010 by spikestl

An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask his advice on reviving her husband’s libido.

‘What about trying Viagra?’ asked the doctor.

‘Not a chance’, she said.. ‘He won’t even take an aspirin.’

‘Not a problem,’ replied the doctor. ‘Give him an ‘Irish Viagra’…

It’s when you drop the Viagra tablet into his coffee. He won’t even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went..’

It wasn’t a week later when she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to her progress.

The poor dear exclaimed, ‘Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! T’was horrid! Just terrible, doctor!’

‘Really? What happened?’ asked the doctor.

‘Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was almost immediate. He jumped straight up, with a twinkle in his eye and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm, he sent me cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there passionately on the tabletop! T’was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!’

‘Why so terrible?’ asked the doctor, ‘Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn’t good?’

‘Freakin’ jaysus, ’twas the best sex I’ve had in 25 years! But sure as I’m sittin’ here, I’ll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again!’

Little Old Lady

Posted in Cool Beans, My E-mail on February 9, 2010 by spikestl

Defense Attorney:
Will you please state your age?

Little Old Lady:
I am 94 years old.

Defense Attorney:
Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April 1st?

Little Old Lady:
There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm spring evening,   when a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.

Defense Attorney:
Did you know him?

Little Old Lady:
No, but he sure was friendly.

Defense Attorney:
What happened after he sat down?

Little Old Lady:
He started to rub my thigh.

Defense Attorney:
Did you stop him?

Little Old Lady:
No, I didn’t stop him.

Defense Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years ago.

Defense Attorney:
What happened next?

Little Old Lady:
He began to rub my breasts.

Defense Attorney:
Did you stop him then?

Little Old Lady:
No, I did not stop him.

Defense Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven’t felt that good in years! 

Defense Attorney:
What happened next?

Little Old Lady:
Well, by then, I was feeling so ‘spicy’ that I just laid down and told him
‘Take me, young man. Take me now!’

Defense Attorney:
Did he take you?

Little Old Lady:
Hell, no! He just yelled, ‘ April Fool!’ And that’s when I shot him, the little bastard

Congresssman Akin speaking at a podium.

Dear Missouri Friend:

What is your share of the national debt? Would you believe that Congress just raised it’s own credit limit again – and your share of the bill will be $46,319 by the time they are done spending?

On Thursday, I voted against increasing Congress’s debt limit (the amount that Congress can spend our country into debt) and I introduced legislation to make it more difficult for Congress to keep raising its debt limit. I blogged about how it is necessary to force Congress to take responsibility for out-of-control spending: “Congress needs every possible incentive to get its fiscal house in order. My resolution requires that a debt limit increase be voted on separately – not hidden in another bill. And, with a super-majority requirement, raising the debt will not be quite so simple.”

On Wednesday, I went down to the House floor to discuss the President’s new budget. In case you missed it, my staff has put together parts of that discussion on YouTube for you to watch. While we are still not finished reviewing the new budget, the big picture is clear. This budget will raise the deficit to a record level: $1.6 trillion and 10.6% of our nation’s gross domestic product. It will double the national debt in five years. By 2020, the interest on our debt will reach $840 billion. In addition, this budget raises taxes by $2 trillion. Even as our current entitlement spending is ballooning out of control, the White House has added brand new entitlements to this budget, including $1 trillion for government run healthcare.

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the President’s budget, the debt limit increase or any other subject.

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (AP) — General Motors on Friday marked the end of the line for a class of V-8 engine that’s been in production for 51 years.The auto maker’s western New York plant stopped production of the latest variation of the “big block” V-8 engines. Plant manager Steve Finch called it “the end of a remarkable era.”The big engine was developed in 1958 to keep up with the growing size and weight of American automobiles. Over the years it’s been redesigned, with the latest version, the L18, going into production in 1999. Made only in Tonawanda, it powers full-size trucks like the Chevrolet Avalanche and some boats.
Its end puts about 150 employees on indefinite layoff.“Although it bears older technology by today’s standards, the reliability, ease of maintenance and the overall quality of this engine have made it a steady performer for many years,” Finch said before the last engine rolled off the line at GM’s suburban Buffalo complex.It was the second time in a year the western New York plant has stopped work on an engine. Over the summer it wrapped up production of a “high value” V-6 engine, which accounted for about 43 percent of the site’s total production volume last year. The company will continue manufacturing smaller-displacement “small block” V-8s at other plants.The large V-8 was the plant’s longest-running engine line, but has accounted for only about 3 percent of total volume lately as emphasis has shifted to smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles.The phaseout of both engines was announced in June as part of the auto maker’s bankruptcy restructuring, which spared the plant from closing but not from the loss of 25 to 30 percent of its work force.The Tonawanda engine plant — which 20 years ago employed 4,350 people — currently has about 663 hourly and 140 salaried workers, spokeswoman Nina Price said.
The facility’s main engine line now is the L850, a four-cylinder, 2.2-liter engine found in the Chevrolet Cobalt and Malibu.

Dear Missouri Friend:

On Wednesday night, the U.S. House of Representatives adjourned for the year. There will be no more bills, no more laws and no more spending until 2010.

Before leaving town, the majority voted to increase the nation’s debt limit by $290 billion. It seems that when Congress puts too much money on the charge card, it can just increase its own credit limit. That’s what happened on Wednesday. America had exceeded the amount of money that our country can legally borrow, so Congress changed the law. In fact, Congress has raised the debt limit 91 times since 1940!

The individual share of the National Debt is now approaching $40,000. What’s the big deal? Irresponsible spending drives our annual deficit and total national debt up further every year. For example, next year, Congress has voted to increase optional, non-defense spending by about 8% over 2009 levels.

And, in the long run, wasteful spending limits economic growth and kills jobs. I went on the House floor to talk about this on Wednesday night and you can listen in here.

I’ll be enjoying time with family over the next couple of weeks and I hope you will be as well. Have a safe and happy rest of the year and a wonderful 2010.


W. Todd Akin
