What do people fear most

What do people fear most?



Two magazines, Country Living (99.99% white readership)

and Ebony/Jet (99.99% black readership) did surveys on

'WHAT DO PEOPLE FEAR MOST?'



The results were interesting, to say the least.



Country Living magazine's top three answers were:

1. Nuclear war/terrorist attack in U.S.

2. Child/spouse dying/terminal illness.

3. Terminal illness/self.



Ebony/Jet magazine's top three answers were:

1. Ghosts

2. Dogs

3. Registered mail







AND TO GO WITH THIS, TWO QUOTES:

ONE PITIFUL, ONE GOOD





My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.

I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

-- Barack Obama





''Life's tough, its even tougher if you're stupid.''

-- John Wayne

Is the quote from the Messiah accurate? If so, that is wonderful!

If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

I don't like Obama, but even if he said that, it doesn't necessarily mean he wants to destroy it.

On the other hand, LOL @ the exact 99.99% figures, and LOL @ "streight." Two, possibly three or four depending on pronunciation, spellings for that sound, and she still mist.

I know he doesn't want to destroy the country, but after all the Obama supporters slammed Bush every time he said something funny, I find it humorous the Messiah said something like that.

I'm surprised dogs are not #1 on the list . At my old shop I had a male and female Rott inside an 8' high steel fenced in area next to the building . We were on the east side of town right in the middle of 90% black community and a lot of people walk on that side of town . Anyways , those fuckers that walked by would cross the damn street and walk on the other side for at least a half mile before and after passing the shop . The mexicans that walked by just walked by like it was no big deal . Almost every black person I have met is scared to death of Rotts .

I truly believe that all blacks are terrified of dogs that are not their own. I am legally blind and used a Guide Dog for many many years and most people were fascinated with my dog except for about 90% of the black people I came into contact with. I was in a Wal-Mart store one day, I ran into s friend and was talking, the tallest, largest black man that I had encountered in a long time came down the isle and when he saw the dog lying down he said Oh My God and turned and almost ran back down the isle. We almost laughed our _ _ _ off. If you only knew my Flair she is the gentlest dog in the world, and the worst she will do to anyone is lean on him or her. Most of the Black Children were frightened of my dog also.

On the other hand, LOL @ the exact 99.99% figures, and LOL @ "streight." Two, possibly three or four depending on pronunciation, spellings for that sound, and she still mist.

Now as for you Mr. Smart _ _ _ I am Legally blind and have been for many years, and do not always take the time to make sure that my fingers did not walk onto the wrong keys or that my head did not forget my childhood teaching. Now I know you think you are the spell check of DFWstang & Im sure everyone just loves your comments so much. But I just wondered if you were this big a jack _ _ _ all the time

If you believed that, even for a second, you're not only gullible, you're probably a racist too.

DO YOU THINK SHE FEARED GIVING UP HER JOB!


At the top right hand corner of Page 17 of the New York Post of January 24th, 2009, was a short column entitled "Replacing Michelle" in the National Review "The Week" column. I found this interesting, so here it is, word for word, as it appeared a few days ago......

'Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama: The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to run "programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority contracting."

In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to $317,000 - nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator.

Oh did we mention that her husband had just become a US Senator? He sure had. Requested a $1 Million earmark for the UC Medical Center, in fact. Way to network Michelle!

But now that Mrs Obama has resigned, the hospital says her position will remain unfilled. How can that be, if the work she did was vital enough to be worth $317,000?

We can think of only one explanation: Senator Roland Burris's wife wasn't interested.

---The Editors of National Review, writing in the Magazine's Feb 9 issue.'

So there you have it. We can all draw our own conclusions. Alight now , don`t rock the boat , Editors "


"BOY I WOULD NOT LIKE TO LOOSE THAT KIND OF SALARY"

Bullshit! I grew up around those people, all of that is as true!!

You must not know any black people. Throw a cat, dog, snake or a little black kid at one and they'll run like a motherfucker.

Sorry to hear that you're legally blind and have been for many years and all that other stuff, but that's a lame excuse to misspell "straight." Or "strait." Or "strayed." Or whatever the other one I was thinking of was. And yes, I'm a big smartass and a big jackass, and most everyone enjoys (some even love) my comments so much.
