He took two Van Goghs, a couple Monets, a DeGas, and many others.
Everything went perfectly, except he was captured sitting in his van with the paintings only 2 blocks from the museum. His van had run out of fuel!
When asked by the police how he could plan such a successful robbery and then be foiled by such a simple error, he replied...
''I had no MONET to buy DEGAS to make the VAN GOGH!''
Everybody have a great weekend!
''I had no MONET to buy DEGAS to make the VAN GOGH!''

I didn't write this...but it's appropriate- From Esquire Magazine-
In my life, I have watched John Kennedy talk on television about missiles in Cuba. I saw Lyndon Johnson look Richard Russell squarely in the eye and and say, "And we shall overcome."
I saw Richard Nixon resign and Gerald Ford tell the Congress that our long national nightmare was over.
I saw Jimmy Carter talk about malaise and Ronald Reagan talk about a shining city on a hill.
I saw George H.W. Bush deliver the eulogy for the Soviet bloc, and Bill Clinton comfort the survivors of Timothy McVeigh's madness in Oklahoma City.
I saw George W. Bush struggle to make sense of it all on September 11, 2001, and I saw Barack Obama sing 'Amazing Grace' in the wounded sanctuary of Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina. "
These were the presidents of my lifetime. These were not perfect men. They were not perfect presidents, god knows. Not one of them was that.
But they approached the job, and they took to the podium, with all the gravitas they could muster as appropriate to the job. They tried, at least, to reach for something in the presidency that was beyond their grasp as ordinary human beings.
They were not all ennobled by the attempt, but they tried nonetheless. "
And comes now this hopeless, vicious buffoon, and the audience of equally hopeless and vicious buffoons who laughed and cheered when he made sport of a woman whose lasting memory of the trauma she suffered is the laughter of the perpetrators.
Now he comes, a man swathed in scandal, with no interest beyond what he can put in his pocket and what he can put over on a universe of suckers, and he does something like this while occupying an office that we gave him, and while endowed with a public trust that he dishonors every day he wakes up in the White House.
"The scion of a multigenerational criminal enterprise, the parameters of which we are only now beginning to comprehend. A vessel for all the worst elements of the American condition. And a cheap, soulless bully besides. We never have had such a cheap counterfeit of a president* as currently occupies the office.
We never have had a president* so completely deserving of scorn and yet so small in the office that it almost seems a waste of time and energy to summon up the requisite contempt. "Watch how a republic dies in the empty eyes of an empty man who feels nothing but his own imaginary greatness, and who cannot find in himself the decency simply to shut up even when it is in his best interest to do so.
Presidents don't have to be heroes to be good presidents. They just have to realize that their humanity is our common humanity, and that their political commonwealth is our political commonwealth, too. Watch him behind the seal of the President of the United States. Isn't he a funny man? Isn't what happened to that lady hilarious? Watch the assembled morons cheer. This is the only story now." -

She is genuine...More genuine than any politician you're going to see...She hasn't been in politics long enough to get jaded, long enough to be bought..or sold...She's what each and everyone of could be if we had the guts, the imagination and the luck to become..
Just a few years ago..she was a college graduate who was bartending to make ends meet..She was like me and most of us recent college grads...We had loans that had to be paid, now...No time to even dream about attempting to get a job in OUR MAJOR!..We've got to survive first...
So she was a bartender...An opinionated bartender with a college degree....She made a run for congress in her district against a popular incumbent Democrat....The kind of person that keeps getting elected by default....They no longer have to promise anything, they no longer have to do anything..People just elect them because well, they know the name...Most of the time...Nobody even bothers to run against an incumbent like this...They don't even bother to campaign....They know they got it in the bag..
Not this time...This time, a pretty little upstart shocked the establishment and the nation...she actually won! She was 28 years old and 29 when she was actually elected..The youngest woman in U.S. history to be elected to congress.
She's an anomaly...She's actually doing what she said she was going to do....And she's caring the hell out of the right wing Republican establishment....
THAT'S WHY I LOVE HER!!!

So I had to put my car, A Nissan Maxima (Car pictured on bottom) in the shop for a few days...They had to keep it overnight because they needed to order some parts...
This was Wednesday.. They gave me a loaner...The Car pictured(On Top)...a 2019 Nissan Rogue....
(My dealership is good like that) One of my cousins said-'It's a set up man." He was right...Naturally, I fell in love with the new car smell...It had Sirrus on it, so I'm listening to a new station with new R&B and Hip Hop...The weather is nice and I've got my sunglasses on and driving everywhere ,looking like Quincy Jones...I was gonna say with my hair blowing in the wind...but I shaved my head bald a few weeks ago, so that's not happening...not yet..
I'm loving the car...But alas.. They called me Friday and told me my car was ready and I had to bring the loaner back...I did so....and no sooner had the guy gave me the keys to my Maxima, he goes..."You liked that Rogue didn't you? It drives smooth don't it?" he said, looking and sounding like Satan... I smiled and said.." Yeah." He goes..."Come talk to me in awhile...I can put you in that....For real brother...I can do that." I felt like a girl being hit on for a second...I said "I'll think about it" and pulled off.. WDAS FM was playing The Temptations. "Don't Let The Jones Get You Down" and Dennis Edwards voice boomed out of my speakers... "Your Car Might be Old...but remember...It never failed to get you where you wanted to go...OHHHH!" I smiled and pulled off down the highway..

Boy: The principal is so dumb!
Girl: Do you know who I am?
Girl: I am the principal's daughter!
Boy: Do you know who I am?
A blonde drops off her dress to the dry cleaners.
The lady says, "Come Again!"
The blonde says, "No, it's toothpaste this time."

In accordance with today being World Autism Awareness Day I present to you this..
I didn't write this, This was written by someone who is a highly functioning person with Autism..
This strikes a chord with me because my grandson is a highly functioning person with Autism...
"April is Autism Awareness Month. People will be dusting off the puzzle piece ribbons and holding fundraisers. Awareness is a great thing. But it’s not acceptance. Awareness is like putting a bandage on a severe wound. It’s a nice thought, but what good does it do? It can’t fix the issue. Acceptance can. There is nothing most people want more in the world than to be accepted, and that also holds true for people on the spectrum.
It can be really difficult living in a world that wasn’t made for you. I struggle every single day with sensory overload and social skills. People with autism have to adapt constantly. I think a great way to accept people with autism is to adapt with them. For example, if you know someone has a sensory issue, try to stay away from it. I’m able to go to crowded and loud places, but I adapt greatly to do that. In exchange, my husband knows to make sure I have days where I don’t have any human interaction at all. His adaption allows me to recharge.
When I go out in public, I try really hard not to stim, because I don’t have that same acceptance from the outside world. I’ve been stared at and even had people think I was making fun of disabled people. Another huge piece of acceptance is not judging people on the way they look. Just because I don’t look or seem autistic doesn’t mean I’m not.
I’ve gone on a journey of self-acceptance as well. I learned to hide my autism in public, which would lead to huge meltdowns once I got home. I was encouraged not to flap, stim or talk to myself in public so I didn’t seem weird. I think that really hurt me in the long run. I’ve only recently started to let myself act autistic in front of people other than my family. If I get really excited about something at a store, I flap and jump. If I’m having a bad day, I’ll use whatever coping mechanism I need so I can complete my errands and get home. It is freeing and it helps immensely with the meltdowns. I no longer need to bottle things up and let them explode.
I’m very lucky to now work in a place and live with people where I can be as autistic as I need to be. I’ve had people walk in on me stimming and jumping and they don’t bat an eye. Their acceptance truly allows me to be myself. In the general world, I think things are slowly moving away from awareness to acceptance. People are starting to realize that people with autism truly have a lot to contribute to society."
Don't just be aware..Accept someone with autism today!
