In honor of the political arena, the debates and the on going bickering back and forth. I thought it would be cute to throw out a couple political jokes. Hope you find them funny.


An old sea story


There's an old sea story in the Marine Corps about a lieutenant who inspected his Marines in the field, and afterward told the 'Gunny' that the men smelled bad. The lieutenant suggested the solution is that they should change underwear.The Gunny responded, 'Aye, aye, sir, I'll see to it immediately!'The Gunny went straight to the squad tent and announced, 'The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowsky, and Brown, you change with Schultz. Now get to it!'

THE MORAL:

A candidate may promise 'change' in Washington ,

but don't count on things smelling any better.


And One More Just because I have it!!!

A Father/daughter talk...


A young woman was about to finish her first year of
college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself
to be a very liberal Democrat, and among other liberal
ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support
more government programs, in other words, redistribution of
wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch
Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the
lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional
chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for
years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he
thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to
higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government
programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her
professors had t o be the truth and she indicated so to her
father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a
4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain,
insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load
and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go
out and party like other people she knew. She didn't
even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have
many college friends because she spent all her time
studying.

Her father listened and then asked, 'How is your friend
Audrey doing?' She replied, 'Audrey is barely
getting by. All she takes are easy classes,20she never
studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on
campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited
to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even
show up for classe s because she's too hung over.'

Her wise father asked his daughter, 'Why don't you
go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off
your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That
way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be
a fair and equal distribution of GPA.'

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's
suggestion, angrily fired back, 'That's a crazy
idea, how would that be fair! I've worked really hard
for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of
hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her
degree. She played while I worked my tail off!'

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,
'Welcome to the Republican party.'

When my boys would go deer hunting for a long weekend, they came home reeking! I told them that they needed to change underwear daily and they always replied: "Oh mom, we did. I took Chuck's and he took Kevin's and Lance has Lenny's and Chris has Lance's!" I think they still recite this same thing every year during deer season!

Love them both, but especially the second one. It makes a lot of difference when you are on the giving end and someone else is doing all the taking.

These are great! I'll have to pass them on to Jeremy's side of the family. They live up in MI, but are conservative to a "T".
