- The economy is turning around. In spite of the fact President George W. Bush left a bigger mess than anyone knew, the economy is finally turning around.
- Our educational system is improving. Under Obama, the teachers have taken their educational mission to heart, and they are inspiring a new generation of scholars to love learning.
- Our defense posture has never been stronger. All our former enemies are extending us hands of friendship.
- The environment has never been cleaner. Even hungry, starving, and ravenous big white, man-eating polar bears are doubling and tripling in their numbers. The only sad bit of news is the sudden reduction in the numbers of Eskimos.
Then I realized that such a post would not be funny.
- All the people who are out of work would not see the humor.
- All the parents who have the heartbreaking choice between sending their children to a public school, a private school, or homeschooling would not see the humor.
- Military personnel stationed in far off war torn lands, stuck with Obama as their Commander-In-Chief, would not see the humor.
- Employees and stockholders in coal companies, seeing that the government is in the process of destroying their industry, would not see the humor. And the Eskimos probably would not like it either.
So I had a puzzle. I like jokes, but to tell one I have to offend somebody. So what do I do for April Fools Day? The answer? Well, I guess I will have to swear off ever telling or posting any more jokes. Nope. No more jokes. Never again. Even if I choose to laugh at the escapades of the Fates, I have no right to cause anyone else to feel bad.
- My New Life as a Liberal Progressive from Freedom, by the way. An important blogger is lost to the ranks of the Conservative movement. :-(
- The modern church service posted by bluebird of bitterness. Here we are reminded of the importance of laughing at our own stupidity.
- Just when you think Obama can be no more pathetic… from Boudica BPI Weblog. Obama really does know the importance of education.
- The SHOCKING new cost of Obamacare from American Freedom. About an April Fools joke from our president. With Democrats, every day is April Fools Day.
