Reposted. Since we migrated to the new server, folks are complaining that some of the old links to this post don’t work.

Roger Williams is running for Congress in Texas, and he’s one of the good guys.

He’s also got a sense of humor. But Democrats probably won’t like him.

From Williams’ website, the donkeys are actually his donkeys from his ranch. And it’s an interesting story…

It all started with an ad that Roger and his wife, Patty, saw in the paper. An older gentleman had several donkeys he could no longer care for, so Roger and Patty headed over to meet the man and the animals. I asked Roger once, “Why donkeys?” He responded by saying, “because they’re living creatures and I didn’t want them to be destroyed.”  And that’s how the first donkeys came to be at the ranch. Over the years, Roger and Patty have adopted more donkeys, and the herd has multiplied into the dozens who star in the video.

Nice guy. The donkeys don’t really mind being exploited for political purposes, anyway. Happens to ‘em all the time, doesn’t it?

    WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV
    AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT
    OR REPUBLICAN, GIVE THE
    FOLLOWING
    SPEECH?

                                    ‘My Fellow Americans: As you all
    know,
    the defeat of the Iraq regime has been
    completed.

                                    Since Congress does not want
    to spend
    any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is
    complete.

                                    This morning I gave the order
    for a
    complete removal of all American forces from Iraq . This action
    will
    be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the
    reckoning.

                                    Before me, I have two lists.
    One list
    contains the names of countries which have stood by our side
    during
    the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom , Spain
    ,
    Bulgaria , Australia , and Poland are some of the countries
    listed
    there.

                                    The other list contains
    every one not
    on the first list. Most of the world’s nations are on that
    list. My
    press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later
    this
    evening.

                                    Let me start by saying
    that effective
    immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2
    ceases
    indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will
    pretty
    much pay for the costs of the Iraqi
    war.

                                    THEN EVERY YEAR THEREAFTER It’ll GO
    TO
    OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM SO IT WONT GO BROKE IN 20
    YEARS.

                                    The American people are no
    longer
    going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch
    those
    government leaders grow fat on
    corruption.

                                    Need help with a famine?
    Wrestling
    with an epidemic? Call France

                                    In the future, together with
    Congress,
    I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing
    social
    problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to
    terrorist
    organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and
    eliminate
    you and all your friends from the face of the
    earth.

                                    Thirsting for a gutsy country
    to
    terrorize? Try France or maybe China
    .

                                    I am ordering the immediate
    severing
    of diplomatic relations with France , and Russia . Thanks for all
    your
    help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as
    well.

                                    I have instructed the Mayor of
    New
    York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located
    in
    Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites
    where
    those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don’t
    care
    about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens
    of
    thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch
    your
    precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of
    the
    finest chop shops in the world. I love New
    York.

                                    A special note to our
    neighbors:
    Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more
    of
    each other, you folks might want to try not ticking us off for
    a
    change.

                                    Mexico is also on List 2.
    Its
    president and his entire corrupt government really need an
    attitude
    adjustment.
                                    I will have a couple
    thousand extra
    tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am
    going to
                                    put ‘em? Yep, border
    security.

                                    Oh, by the way, the United
    States is
    abrogating the NAFTA treaty – starting
    now.

                                    We are tired of the one-way
    highway.
    Immediately, we’ll be drilling for oil in Alaska -which will take
    care
    of this country’s oil needs for decades to come. If you’re
    an
    environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List
    2
    above: pick a country and move
    there.

                                    It is time for America to focus on
    its
    own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of
    isolationism.
    I answer them by saying, ‘darn
    tootin.’

                                    Nearly a century of trying to
    help
    folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us
    the
    undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time
    to
    eliminate hunger in America ..
                                    It is
    time to eliminate homelessness
                                    in America .
    To the nations on List 1,
                                    a final thought.
    Thank you guys.
                                    We owe you and we won’t
    forget.

                                    To the nations on List 2, a
    final
    thought: You might want to learn to speak
    Arabic.

                                    God bless America

                                    Thank you and good
    night.’

                                    If you can read this in
    English,
                                    thank a soldier.

    My friends: thanks for sharing – he’s having fun – the useful fool – maybe I’ll weigh in on his blog if I find the time, but someone needs to tell him and his audience that Obomber is not the ‘socialist’ he’s painted – he’s the best puppet for which Wall Street ever bought and paid – installed to run left cover for the globalists’ agenda

    the mule skinner doesn’t get it that petty plutocrat politicians (on either the so-called right or left) are only water carriers for the global finance oligarchy, which continually screws us all and has essentially hijacked the military apparatus of the so-called free world to server their hegemonic global agenda as a mercenary force

    in service to the globalists the most brutal and heinous regime change operation of late is NATO’s Rape of Libya (50-100-k perished) – and now they’re ginning up the cause with voluminous agitprop to launch an invasion force of mercenaries on Syria – after that it’s Iran – it’s va banqe – shoot the moon – essentially a manic flight forward – in truth, the empire is collapsing!
