The gazelle and the leopard –
Or should the gazelle’s horns be cut off?
Good stuff………regardless of your political viewpoint, the logic of this video on gun control is difficult to disagree with!
I only wish our Congress was REALLY listening to Bill Whittle, our Virtual President.
THE WAY FOR THE GAZELLE TO PROTECT ITSELF FROM THE LEOPARD?
This is a video that needs to be seen by every person in the U.S.

Saint Peter is sitting at the Pearly Gates when two guys wearing dark hoodies, and sagging pants, arrive.
St. Peter looked out through the Gates and said, “Wait here. I’ll be right back.”
St. Peter goes over to God’s chambers and tells him who is waiting for entrance. God says to Peter:
“How many times do I have to tell you? You can’t be judgmental here. This is heaven. All are loved. All are brothers. Go back and let them in!”
St. Peter goes back to the Gates, looks around, and lets out a heavy sigh. He returns to God’s chambers and says, “Well, they’re gone.”
“The guys wearing hoodies?” asked God.
“No. The Pearly Gates.”

Orb splashed through the slop to win the 139th Kentucky Derby, giving Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey his first victory in the 3-year-old classic.
When the field turned for home on the cool, overcast Saturday afternoon at Churchill Downs, Normandy Invasion grabbed the lead while Orb was gearing up. But in the deep stretch, Orb prevailed, carrying Joel Rosario to his first Derby win.
According to the Wall Street Journal, a $2 win bet on Orb paid 12.80. The live odds on the Kentucky Derby website reports that more than $4.7 million was wagered on Orb of the $36.6 million gambled on the race, making the horse a 5-1 favorite as betting closed.
“I’ve always dreamed of this day and it finally came,” 62-year-old McGaughey said after the race.
Long shot Golden Soul was second with Revolutionary third.
Normandy Invasion faded to fourth.
Orb, the 5-1 favorite, ran the 1 1/4 miles in 2:02.89
Here’s video of the exciting race:

PNP comment: Yes, this is a great April Fool’s joke. But, then again, Senator Boxer may go after this one! — Editor Liz Bowen
Time to go after pressure cookers
We need legislation NOW to prevent further needless violence against our citizens. The two pressure cookers used in the Boston bombing resulted in 3 deaths and 140+ injured. Why don’t we have laws requiring background checks prior to their purchase. We should ban all pressure-cookers with removable lids and require immediate registration of any existing pressure-cookers.
We expect major opposition to this new legislation from the powerful Cookware Manufactures Association lobby funded by All-Clad, Caliphan, Faberware, Reverware, etal.
We merely have to substitute “pressure-cooker” for “gun” in NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s description of the latest NY SAFE Act gun control law to see how simple a task this is:
“The CRAP Act stops criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from buying a pressure-cooker by requiring universal background checks on pressure-cooker purchases, increases penalties for people who use illegal pressure-cookers, mandates life in prison without parole for anyone who murders a first responder, and imposes the toughest assault pressure-cooker ban in the country. For cooks, chefs, and law abiding pressure-cooker owners, this new law preserves and protects your right to buy, sell, keep or use your pressure-cookers.”

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be
distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 46 million people.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us
“Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is because
“The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”
Thus ends today’s lesson!

PNP comment: I’ve used this and it does work well. Just remember the MOST important item is to follow with the pot of boiling water and pour it fairly slowly! — Editor Liz Bowen
Recipe is as follows:
Get a BIG kettle of boiling water ready on standby…..
1/2 cup baking soda…dump this in the drain……
1/2 cup white vinegar…dump this in next….
Pour boiling water in the drain…
it will foam up a LOT…
when the water drains out…run the TAP HOT water in the sink and see if the water goes down like it should..
if it doesn’t, reapeat the process.
It took 3 times to unclog my kitchen sink, but it works like new now.
There are NO fumes from this.
Remember to do this ONE time a week to keep the drains running clear….
