JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) shared a joke


McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973)

I think you’ll appreciate this joke!

Obama, Hillary and Trump are standing at the throne of heaven. God looks at them and says, “Before granting you a place at my side, I must ask you what you have learned, what you believe in.”God asks Obama first: “What do you believe?”

He thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, “I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my countrymen”.
God can’t help but see the essential goodness of Obama , and offers him a seat to his left.

Then God turns to Hillary and says, “What do you believe?”

Hillary says, “I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. Like Obama I believe in hard work. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I’ve always tried to be a true patriot and a loyal American.”

God is greatly moved by Hillary’s eloquence, and he offers her a seat to his right.

Finally, God turns to Trump and says, “And you, Donald, what do you believe?”

Trump replies, “I believe you’re in my seat.”

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on NYC Traffic


Amazing!  It’s like they’ve just discovered what I was saying 40 years ago!  Sheeesh!
Just sent them my note below:
You may know of me as a thorn in the side of the Antismokers, one who knows their tricks and techniques and lies and strategies and exposes them repeatedly and bloodily.  I like to say that the reason I know them so well, is that I used to BE one of them… sorta.
I was actually an ANTI-DRIVER!  I was a 100% dyed-in-the-wool bicycle/transit activist doing EXACTLY what you describe in that NYC Traffic article.
Back in 1976 I laid out and had published an entire strategy that was pretty much EXACTLY what you described in your article here forty years later.  See my two articles, Free Peoples Transit, and AATTAACK! (more of a short satirical piece written about 1990 — AATTAACK! stands for Americans Against The Tobacco, Alcohol, And Car Killers!”)
See them both at beneath my Election 2016 analysis.
I think you’ll find them quite interesting in light of your article, and you’re more than welcome to quote freely from them with attribution in your future writings! 
Best wishes in all your future endeavors!
ccing all three co-authors here.

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) shares pictures of Little Luke


 Good Evening All,

I hope this works out as I am trying to share some pictures of our Littlest Jasper, Lukie, as he celebrates his Ninth Birthday. His Mom asked me to share these pictures with you and thank you for all your prayers. Judging by his smile, Lukie is enjoying himself. He is having a wonderful year and making great strides in school. So I ask you to keep the prayers going for our littlest Jasper. Thank you. God Bless.

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) on Thanksgiving Day


Good Morning Dear Friends,

As we gather at table to give Thanks this Thanksgiving for our many Blessings, we also remember those that have been called home. We as we miss them give thanks for their having been part of our lives for a period of time and we celebrate that gift and Blessing. We are thankful for God’s Bounty, for our freedom and loved ones, for those many in our Armed Services, living and dead that have given so much. We are truly Blessed. I count each of you as part of my many Blessings and am thankful for your being there with love and support for those many for whom we pray. Thank you. God Bless. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Families.
