    A Boston Red Sox fan, a Chicago Cubs fan and a NY Yankees fan were all in Saudi Arabia performing military duty for the US Army. While off base, they were caught sharing a smuggled case of booze. All of a sudden Saudi police rushed in and arrested them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime they were sentenced to death! With the help of good lawyers, they were able to successfully appeal their sentence down to life imprisonment. By a stroke of luck, a benevolent Sheik decided that they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik said, "Its my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each one of you one wish before your whipping". The Cubs fan was first in line (he had drunk the least), so after some thought he said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Cubs fan was carried away bleeding and crying. The Yankees fan was up next (he almost finished an entire fifth by himself), and after watching the scene, said "OK please tie two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again, sending the Yankees fan crying like a baby.

    So what? Taft was only a one-term President, and he appointed 5 justices. The point is that every President tries to appoint people who share his views. But many times it backfires -- Teddy Roosevelt, for example, appointed Oliver Wendell Holmes because he thought he would be a strong supporter of the antitrust laws. It turned out otherwise. Some justices turn out to be more liberal (Eisenhower appointed Earl Warren, Gerald Ford appointed John Paul Stevens, and Bush senior appointed David Souter) while some become more conservative (FDR appointed Felix Frankfurter). In a 1984 speech Former Chief Justice William Rehnquist pointed out that while there's nothing wrong with "court-packing", it doesn't always work.

    His plan was rejected by an overwhelmingly Democrat Senate by a vote of 70-22.

    Isn't religion sold on fear? (Repent, or you'll go to Hell...)

    The SS benefits you will receive will have come from the payroll taxes paid by others (your payroll taxes have gone to pay for the benefits of those already receiving SS), so by your reasoning they're stolen as well. You can't have it both ways.

    It just goes to show that insurance and faith don't always work out the way they're supposed to.

We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."
