While suturing a laceration on the hand of a 90-year-old man, the doctor asked his patient how he thought Barak Obama was doing as President.
The old man said, "Y’know, Obama is a post turtle." Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a "post turtle" was.
He said, "Did you ever drive down a country road and come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top? You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor thing down. That's a post turtle."
SENILE LIKE A FOX
One sunny December day in 2012, an old man approached the White House from across the lawn, where he'd been sitting on a park bench.
He spoke to the soldier standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Romney.”
The guard replied, "Sir, Mister Romney is not the President and he isn’t here."
The old man said, "Okay," and walked away.
The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same soldier, "I would like to go in and meet with President Romney".
The guard again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Romney is not the President and he isn't here."
The man thanked him and again walked away .
The third day, the same man again approached the White House and spoke to the very same soldier, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Romney.”
The soldier, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to President Romney. I've told you already several times that Mr. Romney is not the President and he isn't here!... Don't you understand?"
The old man answered, "Oh, I understand you fine. I just love hearing your answer!"
The soldier snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir!
THE RIGHT KIND OF MONEY
Someone once asked me what I thought was the ‘right’ amount of money a person should have.
After due consideration I guess I’d have to say that it’s enough to let you be free but not enough to let you deny freedom to another.
