A UNC student went to an eye doctor to have her eyes checked for glasses. The doctor directed her to read various letters with the left eye while covering the right eye. This student was so mixed up on which eye was which that the eye doctor in disgust took a paper sack with a hole to see through, covered up the appropriate eye and asked her to read the letters.
As he did so, he noticed the student had tears streaming down her face. "Look," said the doctor, "there's no need to get emotional about getting glasses."
"I know," agreed the UNC student, "But I kind of had my heart set on wire frames."

"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book." --Abraham Lincoln
"For we must consider that we shall be as a City upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw his present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world." --John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630
"America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness, which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scriptures. Part of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily perusal of this great book of revelations. That if they would see America free and pure they will make their own spirits free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit." --Woodrow Wilson
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here." --Patrick Henry, original member of the Continental Congress
Goodbye for now & Happy Rapturous Autumn!!! Your friend, confidant, & cohort, Howdy (probably spurious) P.S. I am reading a very interesting book about anti-gravity. I just can't put it down.
JFK said in his inaugural address that "the rights of man do not come from the genrosity of the state but from the hand of God. We dare not forget we are heirs of that first revolution. The word should go forth to our friends and foes alike: that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans, born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed. We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and successs of liberty."
You won't hear that from Nancy Pilosi!!!
