'Her Majesty' and His Holiness, however, have seen it all before, so to make it a little more interesting, the senator says to the Pope,
'Did you know that with just one little wave of my hand I can make every Democrat in the crowd go wild?'
He doubts it, so she shows him. Sure enough, the wave elicits rapture and cheering from every democrat in the crowd. Gradually, the cheering subsides.
The Pope, not wanting to be out done by such a level of arrogance, considers what he could do.
'That was impressive. But did you know that with just one little wave of MY hand I can make EVERY person in the crowd go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display like that of your subjects, but will go deep into their hearts, and they will forever speak of this day and rejoice.'
The senator seriously doubts this, and says so. 'One little wave of your hand and all people will rejoice forever? Show me.'
So the Pope slapped her.
Today, I went to pick up the item we purchased.
Being a child genius I thought I could fit an object larger than my Jeep inside my Jeep. Didn't work. Much consternation on my part followed.
The staff at pick-up picked their brains and offered alternative solutions. The solutions didn't work because of me (not them) and my love affair with keeping my money thus not wanting to pay an additional delivery fee because of my stupidity.
To my amazement the staff (including the Asst.? Mgr) went to the store manager to discuss my situation. I would have loved to have been a fly on that wall.....
Within minutes the store manager arranged for two employees to drive a Sears vehicle that could hold my purchase, delivery it to my home in the next town over AND place said purchase in my home. At no charge to me.
I did tell them that I was shopping at Sears because of their support for our troops (the staff there sent Thanksgiving packages and are now putting together Christmas packages to send), but I also was very pleased to tell them that price AND customer service would keep me coming back. I also pledged that I would tell other people about my pleasant experience, which is one of the reasons for this post.
The others? Well, Sears & Roebuck is a traditional American company (and an American tradition) which not only takes care of their customers, as I have explained, but they also take care of their employees and the community, all while offering great products at great prices.
If we do not support companies such as Sears then companies like Sears will continue to disappear.
I plan to write Sears & Roebuck's corporate and regional offices to tell them of my experience. I kept track of the names of the people that helped me and called the store later to confirm spellings and titles. I hope you all do your Christmas shopping at Sears and are as impressed as I am.
Sears, it's not just for tools!
President Bush and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki have signed a declaration of principles on the continued U.S. presence in Iraq. Our President bush stated that the agreement was an excellent agenda with which negotiations between Iraq and The U.S. could begin to form mutually agreeable treaties.
esteemed Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, issued a statement which included the pure genius that follows:
“President Bush’s agreement with the Iraqi government confirms his
willingness to leave office with a U.S. Army tied down in Iraq and stretched to
the breaking point, with no clear exit strategy from Iraq.
“The President should take responsibility for his Iraq policy rather than
expect the American people or the next Admisitration [sic] to bear the
consequences of his mistakes. The President can do that by working with
Democrats who are fighting every day to bring our troops home responsibly,
honorably, safely and soon.”
If MizzzzzPelosi, as spokespersonage for her party, doesn't believe that any Democrat should have to deal with the consequences of our freeing millions of people and routing al Qaeda in Iraq or if Her Highness believes it might be a little too tough for them to handle then she should bundle up her group of losers, cancel any remaining debates, forego any primaries and go home.
The country will not mind. At all. You may not know it Nance, but this country is stretched to the point of snapping as it tries to put up with your crap and we are also sick of the quagmire that you and el Reido have made of congress.
