Prostitute Santa

"Parents have trouble saying no," said Allison Pugh, a University of Virginia sociology professor. She says parents often buy toys to avoid guilt and ensure their children feel in sync with school classmates.

"Even under circumstances of dire financial straits, that's the last thing parents give up," said Pugh. "They'll contain their own buying for themselves before they'll make their child feel different at school."

Amanda Almodovar says she encounters such families in her work as an elementary school social worker in Alamance County, N.C., where homelessness and unemployment are rising.

"I had one parent who said she'd prostitute herself to get what her child wants," Almodovar said. "It's heartbreaking. They feel inadequate as parents.

"I try to tell them, worry about your home, your heating bill — but they're the ones who have to look into children's faces, the children saying 'I want this, I want that.'"

Parents have trouble saying no?
Here's a thought.... try opening your mouth and just say it! NO...N-O...NO.
All of our kids understand times are hard right now....even for Santa!
They also understand what Christmas is about.
They understand it's not about getting as many or more presents as your classmates!
They understand it's about family, friends, caring, sharing, memories and Christ.
Christmas is about Christ...Christmas is not about "I want this, I want that!"
Now would be a good time for some of these parents to teach this to their kids.

Wouldn't you think a kid that went to school and heard his friends say "We can't play with you cause your momma is a prostitute" would make a child feel more different than "We can't play with you cause you didn't get no toys for Christmas"?

Dead Deer Recipe

If your one of those women that likes to hunt (like me and Sarah Palin)
and your wondering.."What do I do with a dead deer?"


Here's one of my favorite dead deer recipes:
2 pounds of backstrap (dead deer loin)
1 quart of apple cider
1 to 1 1/2 pounds thick sliced bacon
2 - 12 ounce bottles of barbecue sauce

Cut dead deer into 2 inch chunks.
Put chunks of dead deer into a shallow baking dish.
Pour enough apple cider to cover dead deer chunks.
Cover dead deer and gross friends out by putting it in your refrigerator for 2 hours.
Remove from refrigerator after 2 hours (of listening to "I can't believe you killed Bambi")
Pat dead deer dry.
Throw away apple cider. (or serve it to your girlfriends that won't shut up saying "I can't believe you shot and skinned Bambi")
Put dead deer back in baking dish.
Pour BBQ sauce over the dead deer chunks.
Cover and put back in fridge for 2 more hours.
Remove dead deer from fridge and let sit 30 minutes or until it is no longer chilled.
Pre-heat outdoor grill (High Heat, I like charcoal)
Wrap each chunk of dead deer in sliced bacon and secure with toothpicks.
Brush grill with olive oil when grill is hot.
Place dead deer on grill, make sure chunks not touching.
Bacon is gonna make flames from the grease, so be careful.
Piss off your friends by saying "Burn Bambi Burn"
Grill and turn, grill and turn.
Bout 15 to 30 minutes...you've grilled before, you'll know when it's done.
Serve and listen to your girlfriends tell you how good Bambi is.

Keep Darfur in Your Thoughts on Thanksgiving

Send a postcard urging President-elect Obama to make Darfur a day one priority. Together, our combined voices cannot be ignored. Together, we can help end a genocide.

Dear Mr. President,
As a candidate you promised "unstinting resolve" to end the genocide in Darfur. I urge you to keep that promise by making Darfur a priority from day one of your term to achieve:
*Protection of civilians from violence, starvation and disease
*Sustainable peace for all Sudan
*Justice for victims and accountability for perpetrators

Honeymoon

Okie Sister has informed us the Wedding Burglars struck again:
A Lawton man is going to jail after he was spotted stuffing women’s underwear down his pants at Kmart Tuesday night. The suspect also pilfered a sporty man's thong for himself. The “responsible” young man did stop and pick up some contraceptives before leaving for his planned romantic encounter. Instead he was “encountered” by security in the parking lot. The man took the items “for my girl, I was thinking about her,” the 26 year-old said.

You can go to Okie Sister's blog if you want to see the man bulge....very sexaaay! http://www.okiesister.com/okie_sister/2008/11/man-gets-panties-in-a-bunch.html

And here's something fun to do if you get bored after Thanskgiving dinner. Go do a google image search on big bulge....oh my!

Sheriff Warns Hunters NO TRESPASSING!

Sheriff Johnny Tadlock issued a warning to hunters thinking of violating trespassing laws.."DON'T DO IT." With the new federal laws in effect concerning trespassing and hunting clubs leasing land, Tadlock said hunters need to know whose property they're hunting on before they even leave the house. Federal orders say the Sheriff's department must enforce trespassing laws. Sheriff Tadlock wants everyone to know if your name is not on the lease, don't be on that property.

We Went To That Cookie Tree Lighting


The Christmas Tree Lighting by Our Kids
It was dark and cold. We got cookies! We stood there forever. From 6:30 till forever before they lite that tree. They said they was lighten that tree at 6:30. They DID NOT light that tree at 6:30! We got cookies. We stood there in the dark forever before they lite that tree. They should have lite that tree and then sung them Christmas songs. It was too dark and too cold to stand there forever and wait on those lights.
We got cookies! That tree was pretty when it finally came on. They should sing a few songs then turn the lights on then sang some more songs. It was forever! We got cookies. We took some really good pictures. That tree is pretty with the lights. We got cookies.It was cold. The lights were so pretty when they came on. We got cookies!

Stole It From A Man Who Stole It From A Man.

McCurtain Gazette:
A 21 year old Hugo man was arrested Monday after trying to pass a stolen check at Idabel Wal-Mart Super Center. The suspect said he didn't actually steal the checkbook, but named the man who did. The man was arrested for forged instrument, possession of stolen property and obtaining merchandise by false pretense.
(So he stole the checkbook from the man.. who stole the checkbook from the man.. it really belonged to.)

McCurtain Gazette:

Deputies investigated the theft of a .223 rifle from a man's truck while parked at a Smithville bar. The bar owner identified the suspect and the officer drove the man's truck home. The suspect admitted he had the stolen rifle, but said he wasn't the one who took it. Officers also saw a shotgun in the man's home and knew he was a felon. The 35 year old Bethel man was arrested for possession of stolen property and two counts of knowingly concealing stolen property.
(So he stole the rifle from the man...who stole the rifle from the man..that it really belonged to.)

Isn't there an unwritten rule in McCurtain County that crooks can’t steal from other crooks? And don't criminals make life rough on snitches?
Wait maybe we're thinkin' of this

Planning A Wedding!

McCurtain Gazette:
The Sheriff's department is investigating the theft of $3600 in guns, electronics, rare collectables and trading cards from a Smithville home. The victim said his family moved to Pittsburg County about a month ago, but still maintains their former home at Smithville. Recently he discovered someone had broken a window with a rock to get inside. Taken were two rifles, a shotgun, about 2,000 older NBA trading cards, rare action figures, collectables, a camcorder and a cake cutting set.

We're thinkin....they need to be looking for someone that's getting married.
Rifles & shotgun.... used to MAKE someone get married.
Trading cards and collectibles...selling them and using money to pay for the wedding.
Rare action figures....a wedding gift.
Camcorder...record the wedding.
Cake cutting set....cut the wedding cake.
The Sheriff's department needs us.

Again with the Wedding!

McCurtain Gazette:
A man called police after discovering his son's home burglarized Tuesday. He told officers his son works out of town, so he checks on his house while he is away. A DVD player and several pieces of jewelry and clothes were taken.

We're telling you it's someone getting married.
DVD Player.....watch the wedding.
Jewelry.....wedding rings.
Clothes...wedding clothes.
The Police Department needs us.

Again!

McCurtain Gazette:
Deputies investigated the burglary of the First Assembly of God Church in Hochatown Wednesday.

Told ya it was someone getting married!

My name is Ex-Husband

McCurtain Gazette:
A man called the Sheriff's department after a woman's ex-husband cracked his windshield Sunday.
The victim said he was at a woman's house when her ex-husband drove up and was angry that he was there.
The suspect grabbed a small figurine from the yard and beat the man's truck with it, the victim said.
The woman said both men are her ex-husband's.
She might want to go here http://www.i-hate-my-ex.com/front.html

Rock Handy

McCurtain Gazette:
Police are investigating the third burglary of an Idabel Medical Rental Vehicle this year. Large rocks were used to break the windshield of the vehicle, officers said. Taken were a first aid kit and a tool box which contained meters for analyzing liquids.

Guess there were no small figurines handy.

Idabel Mailbox


McCurtain Gazette:
Idabel officers investigated a mailbox being
run over.

No word on the condition of the mailbox today.
We did learn it was taken to the same hospital
as the Idabel Arm. So it should make a full recovery.

Sonic-America's Resturant....for voyeurs!

Sonic manager arrested for videotaping women's restroom in Oklahoma City.
The general manager at an Oklahoma City Sonic Drive-In was arrested and later fired after he was accused of filming female employees in the women's restroom.

He could always say "I thought someone was stealing toilet paper and I just wanted to see who it was."

Veterans Day History

President Eisenhower signs HR7786, officially changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day.


President Eisenhower’s letter to Harvey V. Higley, Administrator of Veterans' Affairs, designating him Chairman, Veterans Day National Committee.


The White House Office
October 8, 1954

Dear Mr. Higley:

I have today signed a proclamation calling upon all of our citizens to observe Thursday, November 11, 1954 as Veterans Day. It is my earnest hope that all veterans, their organizations, and the entire citizenry will join hands to insure proper and widespread observance of this day. With the thought that it will be most helpful to coordinate the planning, I am suggesting the formation of a Veterans Day National Committee. In view of your great personal interest as well as your official responsibilities, I have designated you to serve as Chairman. You may include in the Committee membership such other persons as you desire to select and I am requesting the heads of all departments and agencies of the Executive branch to assist the Committee in its work in every way possible.

I have every confidence that our Nation will respond wholeheartedly in the appropriate observance of Veterans Day, 1954.

Sincerely,

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
