Came across these on the net – these are priceless!!!

Lesson 1:

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,…

“Who was that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbor,” she replies. “Great!” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable. exposure.

Lesson 2

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish” “Me first! Me first!” says the admin. clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Poof! She’s gone. “Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii,relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Poof! He’s gone. “OK, you’re up,” the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3

A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,”Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.” Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Lesson 4

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him,”Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.

A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

Lesson 5:

A turkey was chatting with a bull “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.

Lesson 6

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story:
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
3. And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!

I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.

FOR EXAMPLE:

One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed. Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says “I don’t feel like it, I just want you to hold me.”

I said “WHAT??!! What was that?!”

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear…


“You’re just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man.”

She responded to my puzzled look by saying, “Can’t you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?”

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.

The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn’t decide which one to take so I told her we’d just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said lets get a pair for each outfit. We went onto the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamondearrings. Let me tell you…she was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn’t even know how to play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I said, “That’s fine, honey.”

She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation she finally said, “I think this is all dear, let’s go to the cashier.”

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, “No honey, I don’t feel like it.”

Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled “WHAT?”

I then said “honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You’re just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman.” And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, “Why can’t you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?”

Apparently I’m not having sex tonight either.

Ahh it was a good day! As noted, Street Sense, Hard Spun and Curlin were the class of the race. And I knew that it would be Curlin and Street Sense down the stretch.

I ended up placing only three wagers in today’s Preakness. As indicated before, I picked a 4-7-8 trifecta box, a 7-8 exacta box and a 4-8 exacta box for a total of $24. I was a bit scared away from doing a $48 4-7-8-wheel for 48 which in hindsight I should have done!

In any case I cashed the 4-8 exacta but as I predicted, it only paid $23. But the 4-7-8 trifecta made the day worthwhile paying $50. So I doubled up my money, plus a little.

Cant complain!

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of water, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure their safety and that they work as advertised.

All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – now Joe gets it too.

He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some girly- man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.

Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for the laws to stop industries from polluting our air.

He walks on the government-provided sidewalk to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation costs because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union.

If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get a worker compensation or an unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

It is noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the country would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime. Joe also forgets that his in addition to his federally subsidized student loans, he attended a state-funded university.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards to go along with the tax- payer funded roads.

He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers’ Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans.

The house didn’t have electricity until some big- government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification.

He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberals made sure Dad could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to.

Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees: “We don’t need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I’m a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of himself, just like I have.”-

Well, ok so we kinda did ok at the Kentucky Derby, but could have done a bit better. But then when you have the 20 best 3-year olds running in one race, its a bit hard to put all that together and choose 3 horses. The Preakness wont be quite as hard, but there are opportunities for surprised (though not likely).

The Preakness is run at Pimlico Race track two weeks after the Kentucky Derby. This year its the 12th race on the card, and has a field of nine horses, 4 of which were in the Derby. The other 5 chose to skip the Derby for one reason or another. The Preakness is 1/16th of a mile (1/2 furlong or 110 yards) shorter than the Derby, which really means nothing come to think of it overall.

The top three Kentucky Derby horses are all back: Street Sense, Hard Spun, and Curlin. Not surpirsingly they are the pre-race favorites. There’s little chance that anyone else can compete with these three if they run up to their potential. However, in any given race, things just happen to give other horses an edge. Let’s review each horse, and see what the past performances tell us.

Remember some of the coding:

G1 = grade 1 race (races with good competition and high money)
G2 = grade 2 race (lower money, but usually very good competition)
G3 = grade 3 race (lower money and decent competition)

Beyer = An objective measurement of speed of the horse considering the track and times. In general a higher Beyer is best. Beyer’s greater than 100 are exceptional. These are usually followed by the competition grade (like 92-08). The larger the differential the more competitive the race. At these levels, you need to consistently be running in the mid 90’s or above to be competitive.

1 – MINT SLEWLEP (Robert Balles/A. Garcia) Track odds: 30-1
Right out of the block this looks dicey. His longest race today was 1-1/16 in March at a G3 where he placed 5th, running a 75 Beyer against a mediocre field (80-17). His best Beyer was an 85 (86-27) which just seems to me to make him WAY out of class here. The 30-1 seems a bit right, and might go up. There’s a decent chance this horse finishes dead last.

#2 – XCHANGER (Mark Shuman/R. Dominguez) Track odds: 15-1
This horse is coming off an impressive win at the Federico Tesio Stakes (1-1/8), winning by almost 5, and sporting a Beyer of 95 (92-12). However, outside that performance, there’s been little to get excited about. He’s struggled in most graded races pulling a couple of 3rds in G3s and a 6th at the Champagne G1, posting Beyers mostly in the mid 80’s or below. In his last outing however, he leaped out and won wire to wire running a 1:49-4 which was better than Street Sense did in losing the Blue Grass by a nose. Dominguez returns to ride this time and if it rains, this horse does VERY well.

#3 – CIRCULAR QUAY (Todd Pletcher/J. Velazquez) Track Odds: 8-1

At 8-1 this looks like a possible play. This horse was highly touted in the Derby, but couldn’t handle the big field and finished 6th. A better post position plays much better to his advantage. He’s definitely a stalker, and prefers to lay way back and make a big run, which will probably put him in the company of the favorites. His personal best 102 Beyer came in his win at the Louisiana Derby against a 98-07 field, so the horse can run with the best of them.

#4 – CURLIN (Steve Asmussen/R. Albarado) Track Odds: 7-2

After destroying the fields in his previous races, Curlin had to settle for 3rd in the Derby, getting caught too far outside to finish an impressive run from 6th to 3rd. Still he was 8 lengths from the winner (Street Sense), and 5 lengths from the place horse, Hard Spun. A shorter race (albeit only 1/16th) might favor him. The middle position is very good also. Its hard to imagine this horse not in the money here since he hasn’t had a Beyer less than 97. The 7-2 should hold close.

#5 – KING OF THE ROXY (Todd Pletcher/G. Gomez) Track Odds: 12-1

Definitely in play for an exotic at 12-1, Roxy is a decent wild card here. He skipped the Derby to prepare for the Preakness. There is some concern over the consistency of his races, as he’s run Beyers ranging from 40 (3 outings ago at the BC Juvenile) to 103 in winning the G2 Hutcheson. He came in 2nd only a ½ back of Tiago at the Santa Anita running the 1-1/8th in 1:49-2., so he has good speed. When he’s been in the money, he’s gone out early, preferring to hover around 4th or 3rd and charging to finish although at the Hutcheson he seemed to stalk toward the back. He draws a middle post which could be good for him to push to that position again.

#6 – FLYING FIRST CLASS (D Wayne Lucas/M. Guidry) Track Odds: 20-1

Another inconsistent horse with Beyers ranging from 53 to 107 in 5 outings. He won his last outing at the Derby Trial, going out in the top 4 and moving to the lead midway and never looking back (92, 93-13). What’s troubling here is that he’s been in two races with Curlin, and been left in the dust finishing 6th at the Arkansas Derby (G2) and 8th at the Rebel (G3) running only an 82 and 73 respectively. The concern is what this horse can do when he runs with good competition. It doesnt look good, but a $2 bet on a D. Wayne Lucas horse isnt the worst thing in the world. If this horse is allowed to run out to the lead, he could pop into the money at the end.

#7 – HARD SPUN (Larry Jones/M. Pino) Track Odds: 5-2

The Derby runner up is likely to be close to a co-favorite by post time, so the 5-2 is accurate. Pino jumps on again to reprise his KD ride. This horse likes to jump out to the leading pack, and did so in the Derby almost leading wire to wire. His history supports this (except for the LanesEnd). With Beyers greater than 100 (101, 107) in the last two graded races, it could be a very close finish this time. If Street Sense gets hung up, this is the horse to beat.

#8 – STREET SENSE (Carl Nafzger/C. Borel) Track Odds: 7-5

Your Derby winner should have no problem with this turf or distance, but there will be less time to pull away. Street Sense blew by the field at the end of the Derby as if they were standing still, sporting a scary Beyer of 110 (Equibase had him at 113!). The thing that just scares you to death is that this horse loves to start at the back of the pack and run up at the end (he was next to last in the Derby at one time). There’s no doubting that he should be the favorite, and he HAS won back to back graded races before, but the real test here will be how he will break with Hard Spun next to him that likes to run to the lead. The Preakness doesn’t treat kindly to those that stalk, so something has to give.

#9 – C P WEST (Nick Zito/E. Prado) Track Odds: 20-1

This could be a very interesting exotic play and long shot. You have to love the trainer/jockey pairing here, and while this horse hasnt seemed to find the winners circle in graded races, he’s run up to 2nd a few times. But, its very hard to think there’s a chance here, with his Beyers not measuring up (highest was a 92). He’s inconsistent, and his only quality race was the BC Juvenile with horses here, and he finished 6th. He’d really have to run a superior race and show speed he never has to be in the race here (or it would need to be a SLOW race). Coming from the far outside wont help either.

So my analysis says we have maybe 4 considerations: Street Sense, Hard Spun, Curlin and Circular Quay. I will be watching the workouts and reading more, but my first hunch on wagering would be:

Exacta Box: 7-8 (Hard Spun, Street Sense)
Trifecta Box: 7-8-4 (Street Sense, Hard Spun, Curlin)
I will probably do a few exotics with Circular Quay and maybe Flying First Class.

OK So I am sitting here about 4 hours to post time, and just returned from the track to place my wagers for this year’s Kentucky Derby.  This is a magnificent field of 20 horses, with around 15 of them with a real shot, under certain circumstances to end up with the roses.  However, the gamesman that I am, I have to go out on a limb and try to pick em. So here goes.

The track is already soggy from yesterday’s rains, and the sun probably isnt going to come out enough to dry things out to be a “fast” track. With the caliber of horses in this race, this wont effect the major running, except for one factor – the race will be slower. A slower race brings more outside horses into the race which makes those an interesting proposition.

Look for Cowtown Cat, Stormello, Sam P and maybe Teusflesberg to jump out quickly, especially Cowtown Cat being in the 6 spot and having good speed. Most of the major contenders will be content to stalk and drop into the midpack and make clearing moves. Street Sense, from the 7-hole, should pop out but settle in around 6-9 and close to the rail if possible. Closers might even drop further, especially those like Dominican coming from the 19 spot, Any Given Saturday from the 18,  and even Circular Quay at 16.  Im thinking the 1/4 goes at around 22 or 23 secs, and the 1/2 at around 46 but could be slower.  If its slower, beware of the outside speed horses.

At the top of the stretch, I think you’ll see a pack including Street Sense, Circular Quay, Nobiz Like Shobiz, Scat Daddy, Curlin and maybe Dominican. If Street Sense has access to the rail, look for him to dive toward it and go all out.  IF Curlin and Dominican are in it, and they are anything like they were in past races, look for them to sprint to the end with Street Sense. Circular Quay will break also.  I think what finally happens is that Street Sense pulls away with Circular Quay a length or two behind, and Curlin and Dominican sprinting to catch and pass.  Street Sense is gutsy enough to hold off Circular Quay, but Curlin catches and passes for the win.

1) Curlin

2) Street Sense

3) Circular Quay

4) Dominican

Of course, you all can either worship me as a horse racing wizard in 4 hours, or feel free to chastize me all you want.  No matter how you look at it, it will be a great race.

A long time ago, I can remember being ideologically drawn to the Republican party. Certainly as a youth this was a bit counter-culture to most my age. Yet, I saw the appeal of things that I admired: Values based platform, respect for state’s rights and less big government, balanced budget, discerned spending, and a sense of nationalism.  Republicans seemed to always be the more compassionate party, while Democrats were always the kooks. These were the things that Ronald Regan stood for and I was proud to support him in both terms. There hasnt been a finer example of Presidential-ism since.

But things have changed – drastically.  I think it more common to become more conservative as one ages, not the other way around. However, with the mass ideological shift of the Republican part, it just seems that they are out of touch with mainstream America, and as such, ineffective.

I came across an interesting perspective that seemed to hit it on the head…I paraphrase it here for brevity.  Think of these as the new, 21st century beliefs you must adhere to if you are to be in the Republican Party today:

1.  You must believe that being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime – unless you’re a millionaire right wing radio gasbag; then, it’s an “illness” and requires prayer for “recovery”. Right Rush?

2. You must believe that those born to privilege achieve success on their own, but that all of their customers are lazy and stupid. Sadly, I have to admit this has always been the case.

3.  You must believe that ethics are an inconvenience that only Democrats bother with, and that any way you raise money is okay, so long as you don’t get caught. Hence why in 6 years the Republican members of Congress have solidified against every ethics initiative brought before the bodies. And we dont need to talk about Rove, Libby, and other corrupt officials.

4. You must believe that folks who work for their money should be taxed at a high rate, but those who get their money for nothing should be exempt from taxation.  Sadly this has been the case for a while also. I dont understand why someone making $10,000,000 a year should pay less tax than a father of 2 trying to make ends meet and sending a kid to college, and not getting any tax break for it.

5. You must believe that being “morally upright” means hating gays and liberals, and anyone else who doesn’t hate gays and liberals.  When did it get to be national politics for your biases to become law and force them on everyone else, who also so happen to be citizens of this country.  Show me ANYWHERE in the U. S. Constitution that hints at this. If you dont like it morally, thats your business, work with your church to do whatever you wish – that is the proper vehicle for MORAL change, not the Federal government.

6. You must believe that, to rid the country of crime, you must rid the world of people not like you. You speak alot about terrorism, and yet the single thing that drives terrorists wild, is the idea that all citizens in this country can speak their mind, without fear of reprisal. Pluralism is the hallmark of democracy, yet Republicans feel otherwise. Shame on you.

7.  You must agree that racking up huge amounts of debt and handing it off to future generations is worth the few thousand extra in tax breaks given to your wealthy “investors.” Nuff said on that, review the last 6 years and see where the deficit and debt levels have gone!

8.  You must believe the US should pull out of the UN, at the same time you claim our highest national priority is to start a war to enforce UN resolutions. Something I never understood. In addition to starting a war on manufactured, deceptive information (and defrauding Congress). you ask the UN for permission to conduct an offensive, then ignore it, but wish to hold other countries to the resolutions. Is there ANY surprise that the US and Israel are the largest violators of UN resolutions in the history of the organization?

9. You must believe that government should stay out of people’s financial lives, but should socially engineer any behaviors deemed “unacceptable.” That the government should stay out of our checkbooks, but feel perfectly at home on our bedrooms and doctors offices.

10. You must believe that profitable pollution is perfectly ok, and that all science is bunk when it cuts into profits.  Now look where we are!

11. You must support prayer in schools, as long as no one prays to Allah or Buddha. Hyprocrites.

12. You must believe that rushing to Washington to vote to keep a dead woman’s tube in place is more important than seeing thousands of people drown in a hurricane.  Perhaps the single most embarassing, tragic and defiled abuse of governmental power in the history of the US.

13. You must believe that no Republican is crooked, as long as he says the right thing and writes you a big enough check.

14. You must believe that, while a woman cannot be trusted with decisions about her own body, huge multi-national corporations can be trusted to make decisions affecting all mankind with no regulation whatsoever. Irresponsible pharmaceutical companies that sell a drug for cents in Norway, sell it for hundreds in the US, just because the insurance companies can pay.

15. You must believe that Jesus loves you, but shares your hatred and distrust of the poor, homosexuals, and the Clintons.  If you dont believe this, please go listen to the ultra right wing, fundamentalist rhetoric in the past, and in this current election. Oh by the way, yes they are funded by donations that could be saving people all over the world, helping mothers make good moral decisions, and rendering aid to the underprivileged. But, lobbiests give more publicity.

16. You must believe that the best way to show appreciation to the troops is to charge them to fly home for leave, serve plastic turkey and cut their VA benefits.  Yes its thre Republicans that did this, all the while talking about “honoring their service”. Look it up if you dont believe it.

17. You must think that keeping sex education and birth control out of schools is the wisest course, because without them, teenagers will never have sex.  Yeah that will work. How about those churches using that money to build activity centers for kids to help teach them? Oh, no that wont work.

18.  You must think that the best way to fight terrorism is to alienate our allies and piss off the rest of the world at the same time we demand their cooperation and money. Do we really have any friends left?  Didnt the UK just announce the reduction of troops? Hmm.

19. You must believe that single-payer health care, in which everyone pays for and receives health insurance, would be a disaster compared to the current system, in which 40 million people are forbidden from paying into the system, but still receive emergency health care. You must also believe that insurance companies only care about giving you the best darn health care there is, damn the profit. You must also believe that providing health care to Iraqis is good policy, while providing it to Americans is a “Socialist plot.”

20.  You must agree that the link between tobacco and cancer is “dubious,” that claims of global warming are “junk science” and that creationism has a sound scientific basis that should be part of all school curricula.

21. You must agree that Saddam Hussein was a good guy when Reagan was sending him arms, a bad guy when he invaded Kuwait, a good guy again when Cheney did business with him at Halliburton, and then a bad guy again when Bush decided that a war in Iraq would be a very lucrative deal for his “investors.”

22.  You must believe that the Bill of Rights is absolute in the case of the Second Amendment, but negotiable with regard to the rest of the document.  Oh I’m sorry, if you are a Republican you have no idea what the Bill of Rights is.  Google to find out.

23. You must agree that the adulterous affairs of Democrats require public embarrassment and impeachment, while those of Republicans are a private matter, and excusable because, well, “boys will be boys” (or girls). I repeat… Hypocrites.

24. You must ascribe to the notion that the Clintons’ business deals were major breaches of the public trust, while the fact that Dick Cheney is still being paid by Halliburton, which is now getting billions of your tax dollars, is no big deal.

25. You must believe that everything that Democrats do should be public knowledge, but that the public has no right to know anything that Republicans do.

26. You must always deride a Democrat’s changes of mind and philosophy as a “flip-flop,” while referring to those of fellow Republicans as “growth.”

27. You must openly support “state rights,” except when John Ashcroft wants to force local libraries to turn over their records or Tom DeLay wants to impose new districts because he doesn’t like election results.

28. You must agree that income tax cuts for the rich are good for the economy, while payroll tax cuts for the working class are bad. Furthermore, you must believe that making sure that the rich have a few extra dollars in their pockets is good for the economy, while raising the minimum wage is detrimental.

And the list of rules grows everyday that Bush and Cheney run the government.
