WEATHER BULLETIN:
Up here in the Northern Plains we just recovered from a Historic event --- may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.

FYI:
* George Bush did not come..
* FEMA did nothing..
* No one howled for the government...
* No one blamed the government
* No one even uttered an expletive on TV...
* Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit
* Our Mayor's did not blame Bush or anyone else
* Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else either
* CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC did not visit - or report on this category 5 snow storm ;
* Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.....
* No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House....
* No one looted...
* Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something
* Nobody expected the government to do anything either
* No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No GeraldoRivera
* No Shaun Penn, No Barbra Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found And
* Nope, we just melted the snow for water
* Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars
* The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny
* Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments delivered it to the snow bound families
* Families took in the stranded people - total strangers
* We Fired up wood stoves
* Broke out coal oil lanterns or coleman lanterns
* We put on an extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die"
* We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.
* Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early...we know it can happen and how to deal with it
ourselves.

God, I love this posting. About time someone took responsibility for thier own conditions and went about it with determination. Thank you Dakota, I'm going to cut this out and post it in my school so my students can see what people can do in times of adversity. God bless you!

Glad to be of assistance. You should also tell them that whining never got anyone anything unless you're a Democrat.

Black boys are delicious
Chocolate flavored love
Licorice lips like candy
I keep my cocoa handy
I have such a sweet tooth
When it comes to love

Once I tried a diet
Of quiet rest no sweets
But I went nearly crazy
And I went clearly crazy
Because I really craved for
Chocolate flavored treats

Black boys are nutritious
Black boys fill me up
Black boys are so dandy yummy
Always satisfy my tummy
I have such a sweet tooth
When it comes to love

Black black black black
Black black black black
Black boys!


White boys are so pretty
Skin as smooth as milk
White boys are so pretty
They're like Chinese silk

I tell you that the white boys give me goosebumps
White boys give me the chills
And when they touch my shoulder
That's the touch that kills

Well my mama calls them ninnies
But I call them picadillies
My daddy told me stay away
But I said come on out and let's play

White boys are so groovy
White boys are so tough
And every time that they're near me
I just can't get enough

White boys are so pretty
White boys are so sweet
White boys drive me crazy
Drive me in the street

White boys are so sexy
Legs so long and lean
I love those frayed old trousers
Love the love machine

My brother called them trouble
That's my kind of trouble
My daddy told me no no no no
But I said white boys, don't go

White boys are so lovely
Beautiful as girls
I love to run my fingers
And touch through all them curls

Give me a soft, a sweet, a sexy, a sweet
A pretty, a juicy white boy
Black boy! White boy!
Black boy! White boy!
Mix me up
