The Wisdom of Maxine


Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately; illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, wild animals attacking humans in Florida. Not me. I concentrate on solutions to problems. The result is a win-win-win situation:

      * Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border

      * Use the dirt to raise the levies in New Orleans

      * Put the Florida alligators in the moat. 

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?

To delete Housework permanently?"
6. Calmly answer, "Yes," and press mouse button firmly......

On Politics ...

  Here we are already discussing the future President of the United States in the Year 2008.  Well, I have my own candidate and I'm sure that once you know who I'm for, you will also agree.

For those of you who would like another choice for President, I have the best solution:  It is probably time we have a woman as President.  My choice, and I hope yours as well, is a very special Lady that has all the answers to our problems.


PLEASE give it a thought when you have a moment....



                      MAXINE FOR PRESIDENT!!!



                    Very eloquently put............don't you think?
