Man mistaken for deer, left dead on roadside for days

Now here's a gruesome little news item for you:

FRANKLIN, Pa. -- Pennsylvania police said a man who died after being struck by a vehicle may have been left on a roadside for days because his body was apparently mistaken for a dead deer.

Police said the man was found on Monday by a motorist, who at first thought the man was a deer because of tan clothing and snow that covered part of his body.

The motorist realized the man wasn't a deer after noticing his shoes.

Authorities believe that many others drove past the body, assuming it was a deer. Police said the man was a passenger in a vehicle that wrecked last Friday.

Police said he'd been walking along the road when he was hit and killed by another vehicle.

Maybe the hit-skip driver who hit and killed him and then left the scene and never reported it also thought he was a deer. Right? Yeah, sure.

A Thanksgiving Story

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"

Public schools sponsor anti-Bush "field trip"

Posting at BabbleFest, J.P Jones reports on a school-sponsored trip to an anti-US anti-Bush hatefest:

From Neil Boortz' website:

If you are sending your child to a government school for their daily programming, chances are overwhelming that your bundle of joy is going to wind up becoming a liberal Democrat. Today, courtesy of The Los Angeles Unified School District, we're going to show you how it's done.

There was a Bush-bashing rally being held in Los Angeles the other day. It was called "The World Can't Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime." Eager for as many people to attend as possible, the school district allowed 800 high school students from 10 schools to walk right out of class to attend. No word if they were given extra credit for their participation.

On top of that, adult staff were supplied to accompany them, and buses were provided for their return. That's right...taxpayer money being spent for the whole thing. Now stop and ask yourself something for a minute...suppose an anti-Hillary Clinton rally were being held. Would the same courtesy be extended? Of course not. The students wouldn't even be given the time of day to attend.

But because it was an event protesting the evil George Bush....the liberal, leftist, bedwetting school administration jumped right on board. Those who send their children off to be indoctrinated in government schools should take note.

Through the wonder of modern technology which is the internet, we don't have to guess at what went on at this school-sponsored day trip.

Courtesy of Little Green Footballs, we have available a photographic sampling of the fine educational fare made available to the kiddies at taxpayer expense, compiled and published by the seemingly ever-present Zombie. Check out the photo gallery for yourself, and watch for the three main themes: Communism is the world's salvation, 9/11 was perpetrated by the US government, and, of course, President Bush is evil/retarded/Hitler/a chimp.

Remember, some school administrators decided this was a wise expenditure of taxpayers' dollars. Do you know what they're doing in your kids' schools? Maybe you better find out.
