This is Lexington, Kentucky Principal Gerry Brooks spreading humor in the world of education.

This guy is the Art Buchwald of YouTube. He is so funny because he sounds so sincere as he lampoons life in the public school. I have done a lot of substitute teaching in my time, and this stuff is priceless.

Recent clip:

This is my favorite:


How about forwarding this blog post to your favorite teacher?

Finally, have you volunteered for Kindergarten lunch room duty lately? You are really missing out on a great experience.

I thought the tracks going through Kalamazoo, Michigan were bad, but these scenes are a virtual panic:

And, while we are at it, take a look at some very strange automobile conversions for rail use:

It is important, friends. South of the Mason Dixon Line any restaurant that does not serve grits will fail for sure. 

There are also two other items that better be on the menu. Fried okra and good biscuits. There are no bad biscuits in Tennessee. That is because any cafe with bad biscuits closed yesterday.

So, how important are grits to southern folks?

Let brother Jerry Clower explain it to you.

If you have been failing to live  up to your expectations, is it possibly because you have let someone else define you?

The truth is, we are all from minority groups of some sort. 

That's me on the far right. Jesse paid us a visit in Tennessee
via the Photo Shop skills of Jay Crosby.

I am a White Anglo Saxon American. But, I am a King James Bible only Fundamental Christian. I am also a US Army Veteran. I am from Texas, California, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, Arizona, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.

And, I speak Swahili, and the walls of my home are covered with gongs and trinkets from Africa. I suspect none of you reading here belong to a minority that small.

So, who defines me?

Homeland Security says I am a potential terrorist because I am a Veteran and I carry a Bible and study prophecy. Honest, HLS believes that.

The Young Turks roar and use the F word when they talk about my group.

Barak Obama wants my group to shut up about Jesus Christ, as if Jesus has also become a "potential terrorist."

So, will we go quiet, and stop talking out in the open, about what we love and why life is good for us?

Will we let the media, the neighbor, some racist, a school teacher, or the President define us?

Please watch this TED Talk:

So, if you let the mob define you, they will then define what the world can expect from you. And, that will not be much.

Will you let them get away with that?

Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Ah, so there is someone on my side.

Thank you, my Savior.

So, you live in the city. That is no excuse to claim you have no time to go bass fishing. You may not have to go far to catch bass.

So, you prefer live bait? Here it is.

And, it is exciting.....

You might even catch a snapper:

This post is about 75% comic relief, and 25% deadly.

What I mean is that there are Christians out there today who are going over the the flat earth theory. I have not been able to identify the center of gravity of this seduction. Someone must be driving this along.

In any case, Stefan Molyneux does an exceptional job of trying to take this seriously while you can see he is having a terrible time not to roar out with laughter. Stefan is an Atheist, but unlike most modern Atheists, Stefan is not a vicious beast about it. So, Stefan is fun to listen to. 

One more note: Stefan is an Anarchist of the benign variety. He has the idea that getting rid of all authority and laws would result in a contemplative society in which people did mostly nice things to one another out of survival instinct. He will, or course, get his wish during what the Bible calls the Great Tribulation.

But, you need to see how Stefan trashes the flat earth theory. I have had a very hard time to take these people seriously until the other day when I saw that Bill Schnoebelen had taken up on the flat earth notions. There is something very seductive about this.

The only people whom I could forgive for believing in the flat earth theory are folks in Iowa and Illinois. The highest thing in Illinois is an overpass on the interstate close to Springfield.
