Redneck at a Party

A filthy rich Florida man decided that he wanted to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and neighbors. 

He also invited Leroy, the only redneck in the neighborhood. He held the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion. 

Leroy was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ and flirting with all the women. 

At the height of the party, the host said, ‘I have a 10-foot man-eating gator in my pool and I’ll give a million dollars to anyone who has the nerve to jump in. 

The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a loud splash. Everyone turned around and saw Leroy in the pool! 

Leroy was fighting the gator and kicking its rear! Leroy was jabbing it in the eyes with his thumbs, throwing punches, head butts and choke holds, biting the gator on the tail and flipping it through the air like some kind of judo instructor. 

The water was churning and splashing everywhere. Both Leroy and the gator were screaming and raising heck. 

Finally, Leroy strangled the gator and let it float to the top like a dime store goldfish. 

Leroy then slowly climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring at him in disbelief. 

Finally, the host says, ‘Well, Leroy, I reckon I owe you a million dollars.’ 

‘No, that’s okay. I don’t want It,’ said Leroy. 

The rich man said, ‘Man, I have to give you something – you won the bet. How about half a million bucks then? 

No thanks, I don’t want it,’ answered Leroy. 

The host said, ‘Come on, I insist on giving you something. That was amazing. How about a new Porsche and a Rolex and some stock options?’ Again Leroy said no. 

Confused, the rich man asked, ‘Well, Leroy, then what do you want?’ 

Leroy said, ‘I want the name of the summamabich that pushed me in the pool!’ 

Morning Briefing – The Telegraph

  Good morning.

Theresa May kicked off the Conservatives’ conference here in Birmingham yesterday by talking about her plan for Brexit, in the hope that doing so would avoid it hanging over the next few days and allow talk of other issues. The Prime Minister delighted her party by confirming that she would take Britain out of the EU so it could be “truly global”.  “The party and indeed most of the country will have rejoiced at her announcement,” observes former party chairman Lord Tebbit in today’s paper. Article 50, she suggested, would be triggered by the end of next March at latest, so that suggests she intends to have Britain out of the EU by 2019 – which would make good on her promise in time for any general election to make Brexit mean Brexit.

The Prime Minister will speak again on Wednesday, but will use that chance to focus on domestic policy. In the meantime her cabinet ministers will get their moments, with Philip Hammond the biggest player to take to the stage this morning. The Chancellor will doubtless bang the drum for Mrs May’s Brexit plan, but it will be more interesting to look out for signs of how his economic management will differ from that of George Osborne. He has already dropped his predecessor’s target to eliminate the deficit by 2020 following the Brexit vote, and shows little hurry to reinstate it. Has Brexit forced him to sideline the “long-term economic plan“?

Some of his cabinet colleagues think he shouldn’t dump Osborne’s agenda outright, with Liam Fox declaring that the Government should be “very clear” that it is still balancing the books during the Brexit process.  Hammond is standing his ground, and will reiterate today that Brexit means there should be no deadline for clearing the deficit given the “new circumstances we face” after the referendum. Osborne’s policies were “the right ones for that that time,” he will say, but “when times change, we must change with them”. Is he perhaps mindful of how much Osborne struggled to keep his deficit reduction on target? Make sure to follow today’s events on our liveblog.

The new Chancellor will vow to “restore fiscal discipline”, and will outline how this requires a “fiscal reset” for the economy which will require borrowing billions of pounds to invest in infrastructure. He may be reining in on the austerity, but that is unlikely to stop the anti-cuts protesters outside of the conference venue. Brexit will loom large, but today’s speeches will serve as a reminder that there are other issues ministers have to tackle as well.



Khamenei Frightening Regret of Nazi Defeat

Beyond the Cusp

Iranian Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei in a speech on September 18, 2016, while denouncing President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani calling for more investment in the economy rather than increasing military spending also made commentary which was far more disturbing. Khamenei lamented the results of World War II and insisted that military spending continue to be the highest priority even if the people are made to suffer economic hardships as Iran must not suffer the same fate which was the fate of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. What makes this all the more threatening is for Iran to suffer such a fate would require their placing themselves in a similar situation threatening other nations to the point where warfare is thrust upon much of the world in a determined effort to resist the threat of world conquest be a single minded nation led by people determined to…

The Temple Mount and UNESCO

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, is known throughout the world for the many places it designates as World Heritage Sites. There are more than one thousand of these, distributed unequally in many countries, with Italy at the top, followed by China.

The largest single category of sites consists of religious sites, categorized under the heading of cultural locations (as distinct from natural ones). Within this category, UNESCO has carried out many dialogues with communities in order to ensure that religious sensitivities are acknowledged and guaranteed. UNESCO has undertaken many measures in this field.

In 2010, the organization held a seminar on the “Role of Religious Communities in the Management of World Heritage Properties.”

“The main objective of the [seminar] was to explore ways of establishing a dialogue between all stakeholders, and to explore possible ways of encouraging and generating mutual understanding and collaboration amongst them in the protection of religious World Heritage properties.”

The notion of dialogue in this context was clearly meant to avoid unilateral decisions by one nation or community to claim exclusive ownership of a religious site.
