** Three Things to Ponder *** – –

Standard

** 1. Cows **** 2 The Constitution **

** 3. The Ten Commandments ***

Herd of Cows

** Cows – Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a single cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington? And they track her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow. ***

Constitution

** The Constitution – They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don’t we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we’re not using it anymore. **

The 10 Commandments

** The Ten Commandments – The real reason that we can not have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You can’t post “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,” and “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness (Lie),” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment. **

Thanks to SB!!
