CATHOLIC EYE OPENER

Charity Hospital run by the Sisters of Charity in New Orleans , along with the Upjohn company developed the plasma system in the 1930's that saved so many lives in WWII, Korea , Vietnam and in the middle east now. 
During the Civil War most of the nurses were nuns. 
   
EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC, THIS IS EYE OPENING.. 
   
When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital. 
   
When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools. 
   
Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world. 
   
The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up the loss. 
   
Also, all Catholic adoption services would come to an end; a human disaster. 
   
There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country. It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president. 
   
I am asking all of you to go to the polls in 2014 and be united in replacing all Senators and Reps with someone who will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions with perhaps the exception of Islam. 
   
Mr. President, you said, "The USA is not a Christian Nation". You are wrong - we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to Worship & Practice Freely. Something Islam will never do. 
   
Oh, by the way, on MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America ... 
   
Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, 
seen a Muslim band march in a parade, know of a Muslim charity, 
ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, or ever seen a Muslim Candy Striper volunteering in a hospital? 
   
Have you ever seen a Muslim do much of anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?

IRS AUDIT

The IRS suspected a fishing boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him. 
IRS AUDITOR: "I need to know how much you pay your employees
". 
Boat Owner:  "Well, there's  Clarence, my deckhand, he's been with me for 3 years and I pay him $1,000 a week plus room and board.  Then there's the mentally challenged guy.  He works 18 hours a day and does 90% of the work.  He makes about $10 a week, pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of rum and a dozen Budweiser's every Saturday night so he can cope with life and occasionally he gets to sleep with my wife". 
IRS AUDITOR: "That's the guy I want to talk to - the mentally challenged one". 
Boat Owner: "That would be me. What do you want to know"?

THE TRAIN

 
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side.
 
  However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
 
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant - i.e., our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
 
  Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.
 
  Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats!
 
  This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.
 
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers . . . requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
 
The mystery to everyone is:
 
We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.
 
So, we must live in the best way - love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.
 
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -
 
- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
 
I wish you a joyful journey for the coming year on the train of life.
 
  Gather success and give lots of love.
 
Lastly,
 
I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!

MY FAVORITE JOKE

A husband and wife were invited to a swanky costume party.  The Mrs. Got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone.
 
He being a devoted husband protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time being spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain and, as it was still early, decided to go the party.
 
Since her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him.
 
She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice woman he could, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.
 
His wife sidled up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his   current partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new babe that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.
 
Finally, he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed.
 
So off they went to one of the cars and had a quickie.
 

Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away, went home, put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior.
 
She was sitting up reading when he came in, and she asked what kind of a time he had.  He said: "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there."
 
"Did you dance much ?"
 
"I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening. But you're not going to believe what happened to the guy I loaned my costume to...."
