Just had to share this story I saw recently in a River Road Church Of Christ publication...


When Christian Herter was Governor of Massachusetts, back in the 1950's, he arrived at a barbecue one evening, after a long day on the campaign trail.

Moving down the serving line, he held out his plate to the woman serving chicken. She gave him a piece of chicken, and quickly turned to serve the next person in line.


"Excuse me," said the Governor, "Do you mind if I have another piece?"


"Sorry," she said, "I'm only allowed to give one piece to each person."


"I'm starving!" said the Governor.


"Sorry," she replied again, "Only one per customer."


The Governor decided to throw his weight around a bit.


"Do you know who I am?" he asked. "I'm the Governor of this state!"


"Do you know who I am?" said the woman, "I'm the lady in charge of the chicken. Move along, mister."


It's good to know exactly who you are dealing with.

Rick, this is government people problem in each country .. They think they are something more. They are the same as we do. They (emit gas from the anus) fart to the chair, they have the same ass hole, they breath the same air.Those people must serve us. They must be(should be) humble.

Cheers Rick.
