Undeserving nobel prize winners Al gore and Obama


The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving....

Irena Sendler

There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive' ... She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German.) Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids..) She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family.

Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

Recently, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize ... She was not selected.

However, Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming and Barack Obama won for a speech on peace.

Powerful message, especially the "cartoon." Let us never forget!

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it's powerful

Then read the comments at the end.
I'm doing my small part by forwarding this message.

I hope you'll consider doing the same.

In Memoriam

It is now more than 60 years after World War II in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, 6 million Jews and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned and starved with many of the world’s people looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with extremist Muslims claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it's imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because Muslim extremists are trying to do it again.

No you Don't need a Droid FREE cell phone

Really, what a great deal - but no, I don't think you need a Droid cell phone.

No, even if it is a FREE cell phone.....

Yep, that was my opinion - not that it mattered much. Why, Because she [ my wife ] went out and got herself a Droid cell phone. Great it’s a free cell phone at this website - Verizon Wireless Android Sale.

verizon android sale free cell phoneI personally believe that 99 percent of the people who own any kind of "smart" cell phone - do not really need it. In fact most of these people do nothing with these smart phones other than use them as toys. The funny thing is that I watch people with their cell phone, I have two co-workers who have smart phones and they basically use it as a toy at work. They don’t do anything productive at work with their cell phone, they just watch videos, play games and spend their time on facebook. Wow, I remember how smart phones were originally sold as tools for business people so they can stay connected with their business. Today staying connected means keeping up with your facebook and twitter accounts.

I know, everyone loves these cell phones - they can't live without thier smart phone. Oh my we all have to have them. Why? Because your friends have one? Because it’s cool? And do you really need to be online that much? Really, I ask you - do you really need to know what is happening on facebook every minute of the day?

But back to my wife and her FREE Droid cell phone.

free cell phone
I explained to my wife that all she was doing was getting into a new debt to pay just so she can have this nice status symbol called Droid. She works in and office and has access to a computer [ the internet ] and a phone all day long. She has no need to stay in contact with anyone after work and other than making calls - she never had a need to check her facebook account or the likewise - so why get a Droid cell phone? Why get a 2 yr contract, a high cell phone bill - when I know that she will either not use the phone to it’s full potential in a productive way and if she uses it, it will only be to play online.

The sad thing is, I am the villain, I am wrong for saying that she doesn’t need it. I am old fashion simply because I am being practical. What she doesn’t realize is - that I sell "cell phones" for a living. I see people all day, everyday, who come to my store looking to buy a Droid cell phone - and 90 % of these people only want it because they think everyone else is getting one. I also see more than half of them complain about how expensive it is to own these Droid smart phones.

Now don’t get me wrong - if you can afford it fine. If you really need it [ meaning that you do work as in business with it ] then fine. But if not why get it? Well, in my wife’s case - because it was a FREE cell phone.

It's two days later and my wife is still setting up her free Driod smart phone.
I called her yesterday from work at her office - called her cell phone that is. No one answered - so I left a message.
After waiting 30 minutes I sent her a text message. No response.
I called her on her office line and she picked up. I asked her why she didn't respond to my call and text message on her cell phone - her response: "Oh, I have my cellphone in my purse let me go turn it on." ??????

When I got home late that night my duaghter told me that Mom, my wife, had spent almost two hours playing with her phone.

Update 2 on free cell phone
free smart phoneOk, to be fair [ becuase my wife says I am picking on her ]. The free cell phone [ droid ] she got did come in handy this weekend. I have to say - the free gps that google provides is great. Especially the beta step by step voice direction navigation system. When I sell the phone I always set it up for customers - but this was the only time I could see it in real action. I think it works great.
With other verizon cell phones the gps cost $9.99 a month. So there is one perk.

But like I said before: if you can afford the monthly cost of a smartphone plan and actually use all the functions of a smart phone - fine. But if you don't, even a free cell phone doesn't justify an expensive monthly bill.


Home Insurance - what a SCAM

We all think that insurance is a waste of money - that is until we need it.

A co-worker of mine was telling me how a client of his was getting a large $90,000 dollar check from his home insurance company.

home insuranceApparently the client was home and decided to start cooking his evening meal, then decided to go outside and check on the kids.
He spent a wonderful time playing catch with the kids and then realized that he forgot that he had forgotten about cooking dinner. I guess all that billowing smoke and the flames bursting from his home must have been a clue.
Sadly enough his entire home was burned down to the ground, thankfully no one was hurt in the fire.

Having a house - the great "American" dream.... no one likes paying for house insurance - that is until you need.

I have never really enjoyed anything that has to do with insurance, I simply can not put my head around the idea that we are basically gambling with me having my life turned upside down.
My house, every American has one dream - to own their "Dream Home"... and what is House Insurance for, to protect that dream. Ofcourse house insurance is basically a gamble - the insurance company that covers my house insurance is betting that I never have to call them on that policy. I am betting that the insurance company will pay me if the house insurance is actually needed. Sadly enough I am at a crossroad.
While I don't want to ever have to collect on my "house insurance" I can not help but feel a bit secure knowing that I have it, even if I don't like to pay for it.

My problem today is not so much fear of losing my home, but of losing my "Home Insurance".

State Farm insurance decided that they were getting out of the home insurance business in Florida. Ofcourse that means I being one of their lucky customers have to find a new home insurance carrier before my current policy expires. So where does that leave me, well - it's hurricane season and apparently none of the current insurance companies that still offer home insurance policies in Florida are offering any policies right now.

Why, because of hurricane season. They basically simply close shop every time the weather man reports that there is a new named storm brewing in the ocean. So here I sit waiting, waiting, waiting for someone to send me papers so I can get insurance to protect my dream - my home from the very thing that is keeping me from getting home insurance from these idiotic insurance companies.

Funny, pillow fight of death

Oh I just had to post this, it made me luagh so hard.
It reminded me of real life oddly enough. Did you ever start a simple game or a simple play fight and then you end up getting way out hand.... no really. I remember when I was a kid me and my older sister were play fighting, we had just finished watching some television show that inspired us to "play fight". I don't remember what the show was about, but I remember what happened afterward. We starting play fighting, I got the upper hand and decided to boast how strong I was and how I was going to win. I do not remmber how but I had some how over powered her enough to have her pinned on the ground - [ thinking back she may have planned it that way ].

Some how she destracted me by warning me that she was going to win....

I stopped to gloat and some how she bent her legs and planted her feet on my chest - the next thing I know I was flying across the room and landed upside down with my feet up on the dreser... not funny.

Ofcourse I did get revenge years later...

We were playing football in our apartment and we had this long hallway... she had the ball and I simply could not catch up to her. So when she was about to touch the goal she slowed down, in that very instint I just decided to push her forward.... right into a wall [ ouch...]. but don't feel bad for her, she gave me a punch to the gut as pay back.. Ah brotherly love, isn't great to have family.
