Taking Back America!

Obama flying into Chicago for his 50th B-day fund raiser looked at Biden, chuckled and said, "You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy." Biden shrugged his shoulders and replied, "I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy". Hearing their exchange, the pilot of the plane said to his co-pilot,"Such big-shots back there. I could throw both of them out of the window and make 310 million people VERY happy
Current Events Breakfast Discussion
Posted by Doug Kolonia
Back when I coached college football I had the honor of meeting and listening to a famous "Good Old Boy Coach" from the South named Irk Russell. He used to be famous for head butting his players after a good play. Of course, he did not have a helmet on and they did but that is another story! He says he stopped doing that after a while because the blood in his eyes from the cuts on his forehead made it hard to see the game.
Anyway, during his speech to a room full of coaches he talked about how after he retired, once a week he would go to a Stuckeys restaurant (remember the blue roof?) and meet with a group of his friends for breakfast. Each week someone different in the group would discuss a topic. This week was Irk's turn and this is how the story went according to Irk...
"I was pretty nervous about what topic I would discuss this week at our breakfast meeting because it was my turn! I had coached in some pretty tough situations during my football career but none of those made me nervous like this, talking in front of my friends. So I thought long and hard and came up with two points that I would talk about. 1) Ignorance - People just don't take the time to learn anything these days about what is going on with their country and 2) Apathy - Not only do people not want to learn about current events they seem to only be concerned with the frivolous things in life. I figured that was a pretty important topic to discuss!
So the big day arrives and after breakfast is served we start to eat. I keep thinking about my "talk" that is about to start.
My buddy sitting next to me leans over and whispers in my ear, "Irk, what are you going to talk about today?" I say back to him, "Ignorance and Apathy."
He replies back with a disappointed look on his face, "Geez Irk! I don't even know what that means and I sure don't care to listen to you talk about it!"
