Thought for the day

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be
redundant) is tragically hit by a car and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there
is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so
we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is
have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where
to spend eternity.”

“Really?, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down,
down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.

In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his
friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake
his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at
the expense of the people.

They played a friendly game of golf and then dined on lobster, caviar and
the finest wines and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having
a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it,
it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter
is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven…”

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls
moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good
time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter
returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose
your eternity.”

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never
have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would
be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to
hell…

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land
covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting
it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there
was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank
champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland
full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says,
“Yesterday we were campaigning,

Today, you voted.”

*Vote wisely in* *November!!!*

One Response to Thought for the day

  1. I’ve been googling for an answer to one simple question, did Melowese Richardson vote today? I’m sure people like Melowese Richardson voted today and often.
    For anyone who is scratching their head and wondering who I referring to, Melowese Richardson is the Ohio poll worker who illegally voted for Barack Obama six times in 2012. Though sentenced to five years in prison after conviction, today she is free. After mere weeks in jail she was quietly released when her sentence was “amended” to probation. By a Democrat.
    Since in Ohio…”one convicted of a felony may register and vote while on probation or parole or after completing his or her sentence.” And it requires (this kills me) a person to be TWICE convicted of violation of the elections laws before they are banned from voting for life. TWICE!

    So my question is, did Melowese Richardson vote today? But I’m sure she did. If we’re lucky she only voted once. (That must have felt strange to her, like wearing one shoe.)
