Donkey and Elephant

The Democratic donkey was first associated with Democrat Andrew Jackson’s 1828 presidential campaign. His opponents called him a jackass (a donkey), and Jackson decided to use the image of the strong-willed animal on his campaign posters. Later, cartoonist Thomas Nast used the Democratic donkey in newspaper cartoons and made the symbol famous.

Further Nast coined the Republican elephant, first shown in a cartoon that appeared in Harper’s Weekly in 1874.  Nast drew a donkey clothed in lion’s skin, scaring away all the animals at the zoo. One of those animals, the elephant, was labeled “The Republican Vote.” It quickly became a recognized and then official symbol of the Republican party.

Ignorance

The greater our knowledge increases the more our ignorance unfolds.

Buddha

The 27 books of the New Testament, as known, constitute the fundamental holy scripture of Christianity.

Without the four Gospels according to Matthew, to Mark, to Luke and to John, Christianity is virtually null and void.

Recent epoch-making discoveries of old Sanskrit manuscripts in Central Asia and Kashmir provide decisive proof that the four Greek Gospels have been translated directly from the Sanskrit.

A careful comparison, word by word, sentence by sentence shows that the Christian Gospels are Pirate-copies of the Buddhist Gospels. God’s word, therefore, is originally Buddha’s word.

Comparison reveals that there is no person, no event, no locality mentioned in the four Christian Gospels not already present in the Buddhist Gospels that, for sure, are far earlier in time than their Christian copies.

Dancing with a man

I saw her sittin’ in a barroom
In that smokey atmosphere
She smiled back at me
As I drank down one last beer
She pulled me on the dance floor
We danced a song or two
It was then I realized that I
Bit off more than I could chew

Chorus
I think I’m dancing with a man
She’s got calluses on her hand
She’s got a voice like Johnny Cash
And she hiding a mustache
I think I’m dancing with a man

We sit down and talked a while
And we listened to the band
[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/H27i ] And a friend of mine walked by
And he asked her if she’d dance
Then he gently took her hand
And he twirled her round and round
It looked like he was havin’ fun
Until her skirt fell to the ground

Chorus
I think he’s dancing with a man
The boys at the lodge won’t understand
As they two-stepped ‘cross the floor
I quickly headed for the door
I think he’s dancing with a man

Good Lord we’re dancing with a man
It’ll be known throughout the land
Two boys from Texas danced a jig
With a dude who wore a wig
We’ve been dancing with a man

She crushed a beer can on her head
Good Lord her forehead’s red
We’ve been dancing with a damn big man

Crowded classrooms…

Crowded classrooms and half-day sessions are a tragic waste of our greatest national resource – the minds of our children.
