0Ammon Bundy, like his father before him, hates the Fed except when taking money from the Fed.. Surprise, surprise, surprise! Ammon Bundy, a man best known for his eloquence and being white enough to not get in trouble for breaking the law, has an awkward history with the federal government his railed against all afternoon today at a press conference. If you haven’t heard, Bundy, his other brother Bundy, and a bunch of other “patriots”, stormed an empty area and have occupied a Federal building in Oregon, shutting down area schools, and threatening to hunker down for a long time. They’re doing this because the United States federal government is a tyranny! The U.S. is tyrannical! Don’t tread on me! Leave me alone! Give me money! Wait, what? Ammon Bundy runs a Phoenix-based company called Valet Fleet Services LLC, which specializes in repairing and maintaining fleets of semitrucks throughout Arizona. On April 15, 2010—Tax Day, as it happens—Bundy's business borrowed $530,000 through a Small Business Administration loan guarantee program. The available public record does not indicate what the loan was used for or whether it was repaid. The SBA website notes that this loan guarantee was issued under a program "to aid small businesses which are unable to obtain financing in the private credit marketplace." The government estimated that this subsidy could cost taxpayers $22,419. Bundy did not respond to an email request for comment about the SBA loan.
Remembering some hilarious fails: The Breakdown There are days of little pleasure leaving hardly time for leisure; waiting for the break-down service, regretting a lack of practice - mumbling against the evidence - there is no lucky providence. Remember when the power failed: a flash of lightning, while it hailed put the lights off in the city, including the publicity; people with torches filled the ways - a strange atmosphere nowadays … Other events strike on the road, some car collapsed under the load, or a bus stands with a flat tire, and no taxi is found for hire; repairs may last a few hours while black clouds are pouring showers. Traffic jams are quite common trouble: champ the bit until you see double! Delays seem a prevailing state playing with a poor chap’s estate, because one is too often late, some argue about a wicked fate. Households have their proper sources, smart brains also need resources when the dishwasher starts to leak, because some tube is far too weak; the victim wipes the consequence of the flooded kitchen sequence … Business says that time is money, thus, hard work does earn the honey; but a day lacking its humour is a knight without his armour, against ordinary dullness, laughing brings about happiness.

For many of us, Mondays - and sometimes Tuesdays - are not the most inspiring days. "Laziness" - About the Daylight Saving Time "Will you get up, you lazy bugger - just fit for drinks and watching rugger! Pal, you are to work for your living, if you can take, you must be giving ..." Quite too many are no early birds, although rules command the human herds: common people shall be efficient - you don't want to be insufficient! There is no excuse for late risers - trust all the busy advertisers: "Six days thou shalt work" says the Bible and the idea is rather tribal. The world belongs to workaholics, sober crews and nonalcoholics; health indeed is highly relevant, from the manager to the servant. Yet, why change the hour for some dime, and impose the daylight saving time? They say that we save on energy, and that grouches trouble synergy. There are so many grumpy people among the mass of resigned sheeple; a lack of sleep, too much frustration - in midst of heavy aberration. Hooray, this is the idyllic dream, where gags swim in a pathetic stream; consumerism wastes Mother earth - rather than face some financial dearth! Jet-lag symptoms and spring tiredness can bear on steady devotedness, you have your biological clock - don't follow blindly the biggest flock. Stop rushing, allow yourself a break, leave the speedways, pull aside and brake - take some days off, enjoy the seasons - no haste, less speed: there are good reasons! Marianne More
Some secrets are good to keep, others are not good to keep at all. Those Secrets, the ones you should not keep, are best told hopefully before real trouble begins.
Sunday Morning Sex Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn't come along." I will never hear church bells ringing again without smiling.
