JOIN THE ADVENTURE...NOW IN OUR FIFTH YEAR OF BROADCASTING.George A. Sprecace, M.D., J.D., Host
We all know Fred Astaire and GeneKelly were great dancers but they weren't the only ones.
JamesCagney and Bob Hope at a Friar's Club
Meeting in 1955, back when
actors were real performers; Hope was 52
and Cagney was 56.
This looks like it's from a movie, not a routine from a Friar's Club meeting. Doesn't take away from it though!
For the young folks, here is something you probably never seen before and, unfortunately, you may never see again.
For us older folks, this is the best of the best, and we had it for many years! This is a side of these two entertainers you hardly ever saw, but it shows you their enormous talent. Bob Hope, the best of comedians, and JamesCagney, mostly cast as the bad guy, a gangster in the movies.
WHAT'S AN INFIDEL
Mathes, is a well-known
leader in prison ministry.
man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you
pulse you have a purpose.
Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in
United States , especially in the minority races!
month I attended my annual training session that's required
maintaining my state prison security clearance.
the training session there was a presentation by three
speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths,
who each explained their beliefs. I was particularly interested in
what the Islamic had to say.
Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam,
with a video.
the presentations, time was provided for questions and
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:
'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and
clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the
infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a
command to all Muslims)
they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me
the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation,
he replied, 'Non-believers!'
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of
Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so
they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'
expression on his face changed from one of authority and
to that of a
little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.'
He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The
all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr.Stanley ordering all
Protestants to do the same
in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'
The Muslim was speechless!
continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when
and your brother clerics
are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order
for you to go to heaven,
or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and
He wants you
to be there with me?'
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the
'Diversification' training seminar
were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and
exposing the truth
about the Muslims' beliefs.
twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to
elect the President!
WAL-MART VS. THE MORONS (NOT A JOKE)
I know lots of folks don't like
Wal-Mart, but this is fascinating
PLEASE, READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!
Wal-Mart vs. The Morons
1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at WalMart Every hour of every day.
2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak English.
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is
approximately 6.5 Billion.)
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart. You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run
Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
This should be read and understood by all Americans Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature:
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country?????
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey...And now Pakistan ........previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS to say nothing about the handouts to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!
Now Obama wants to give 500 million to Syrian fighters.
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks.
AMERICA : a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?
What happened to the old rule, "Charity begins at home"?
Another value we have discarded thanks to our elected officials... both parties!
