    The Big Energy Corporations only want the American sheeple to think that it is colder so that they will turn up their thermostats.

    The media have you all hoodwinked.

    Where are you, and what is your thermostat setting at the point in time you read this?

    Just add some humor and we'll all laugh together. :tongue3:

    I was at Tractor Supply today plunking down $32 for a new snow shovel. They had a grand total of three in stock. Cashier lady says, "Kinda late in the season to be buying a shovel." I told her that I had worn out the old one and nobody let the weatherman know that it was too late in the season to snow.

    The new shovel has a longer handle than the old one so I can pitch the snow over the banks along the driveway and sidewalks.

    I know. I know. It has to get colder because it getting warmer. It is -5 right now and I'm thinking if I have to choose between Walter Cronkite and some climate change feller.... Hello, Walter. That's the way it is.....

    Now, if you spent some time in Germany, esp on REFORGER - and you were in the field for weeks at a time - pulling guard duty, ect in that cold German winter - you wouldn't be complaining so much.

    Well, not every joke plays with the audience well. I think that I will throw that card away.

    I may try it on Poncho first, though...:laugh:

    Don't throw it out yet! It's a keeper!! All you have to do is exchange Big Energy for your favorite talking point: Big Bank, Big Business, Big Pharma; Big NASCAR and modify the rest of it to make it industry specific. Boom! The perfect line for every occasion.

    Big Oil wants you cold. Big bank wants you broke. Big pharma wants you sick. Big NASCAR wants you to be Jimmy Johnson fans. Big government wants you dependent...
