Three commissioners arrested by FBI

By: Dub L. Entendre

Reminiscent of a previous raid thirty years ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigations raided the offices of three undisclosed members of the Hillsborough County Commission today.

Stunned citizens and county government employees were shocked by the scene of armed agents entering One County Center around 1:30 p.m. today. The agents arrested three commissioners and a number of staffers, and later removed hundreds of boxes and several computers from the building.

“It was like a scene out of a movie, I tell you,” Ben Had, a witness to the raid said.

The three commissioners whose offices were raided were arrested and escorted out of the building.

“All of them appeared to be male. I don’t think Commissioner Murman was one of those arrested, as they all were wearing cheap JC Penney brand type shoes and all had their heads covered by their suit jackets,” said Richard Cranium, a witness, in referring to Commissioner Sandy Murman, the lone female on the seven-member board.

According to the FBI, the arrested commissioners were taken to an undisclosed location near Guantanamo Bay, Cuba leaving all the dumb legal experts to believe the three commissioners are being investigated for terrorist activities.

“I’m pretty sure Mark Sharpe was among them. I think he’s been working with the Taliban to take over the world and force everyone to take public transport and use those stupid CFL light bulbs that aren’t that bright,” said erstwhile citizen activist, Shanda Lear.

“They have been removed from the country for security reasons. We expect they will all sing like canaries under questioning from our investigators,” said FBI spokesperson Carrie Oakey.

FBI field director Joe King, added, “This is not a laughing matter.”

Super funny (unless you’re Charlie Crist)

Listen to the funniest segment on the radio (at least last night) by clicking here: http://www.newstalkflorida.com/news-change-over-the-years-with-guest-al-ruechel/#disqus_thread Then click on the “play” button for the segment titled “Charlie Crist.”

By Chris Ingram

Last night I had the privilege of interviewing Al Ruechel, local TV personality at Bay News 9, while I was guest-hosting “Florida Tonight” on AM 820 News/Tampa and AM 1190 News/Orlando. Usually Al is interviewing me on Bay News 9 where I serve as the Republican political analyst. Last night, I got to ask the questions.

Al was his normal self: calm, cool, and collected. All this, even though HE was the one being interviewed — which he is no doubt, not used to.

So we’re in the third segment of the show (Al was on for an hour), and we started talking about Florida’s version of a weathercock (yes, there is such a thing, click here) when the conversation turns to Continue reading “Super funny (unless you’re Charlie Crist)”

Bill Clinton’s hooker problem

Thanks to my friend Larry for passing this along this amusing tale (joke).

hookers

Bill Clinton started jogging near his home in Chappaqua.
But on each run he happened to jog past a hooker standing on the same Street corner, day after day.
With some apprehension he would brace himself as he approached her for what was most certainly to follow.

“Fifty dollars!” she would cry out from the curb.

“No, Five dollars!” fired back Clinton.

This ritual between Bill and the hooker continued for days. Continue reading “Bill Clinton’s hooker problem”

Understanding Obama-nomics

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment?

Understanding Obama-nomics — Abbott and Costello style circa 2012.

Author unknown

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 8.1%.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that’s 14.7%.

COSTELLO: You just said 8.1%.

ABBOTT: 8.1% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 8.1% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 14.7%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 14.7% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 8.1%.

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 8.1% or14.7%?

ABBOTT: 8.1% are unemployed. 14.7% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed. You have to Continue reading “Understanding Obama-nomics”

N.Y. Times media bias exposed!

Last week a Harley-Davidson motorcyle rider who really looked like a sterotypical “biker” was at the zoo when he saw a little girl leaning into a lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabbed her by the cuff of her jacket and tried to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

Last week a Harley-Davidson motorcyle rider who really looked like a sterotypical “biker” was at the zoo when he saw a little girl leaning into a lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabbed her by the cuff of her jacket and tried to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumped into the cage and hit the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumped back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brought her to her terrified parents, who thanked him endlessly.

A reporter from the The New York Times was at the zoo, and he had watched the whole event and approached the biker.

The reporter said, Continue reading “N.Y. Times media bias exposed!”

Ode to the Welfare State

But if Sam treats us all too well
And feeds us milk and honey,
Please, daddy, tell me what the hell
He’s going to use for money.

Democrat Dialog

Father must I go to work?
 No, my lucky son.
We’re living now on Easy Street.
 On dough from Washington.

We’ve left it up to Uncle Sam,
 So don’t get excercised.
Nobody has to give a damn–
 We’ve all been subsidized.

But if Sam treats us all too well

 And feeds us milk and honey,
Please, daddy, tell me what the hell
 He’s going to use for money.

Don’t worry, bub, there’s not a hitch
 In this here noble plan–
He simply soaks the filthy rich
 And helps the common man.

But, father, won’t there come a time
 When they run out of cash
And we have left them not a dime
 When things will go to smash?

My faith in you is shrinking, son,
 You nosy little brat;
You do too damn much thinking, son,
 To be a Democrat.

While the preceding is applicable in the class warfare President Obama and congressional Democrats are currently engaging in, take heart in noting it was entered into the Congressional Record in November  of 1949 by Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-OH). It seems the Democrats’ free-spending ways, general fiscal irresponsibility, and class-warfare tactics have deep roots.
