Roger on Main St.

Yea! Arizona!

Arizona is enforcing the law. It is illegal to enter this country except with a visa, or as a citizen. Sneaking in across any border is against the law. Arizona is enforcing this law to the distress of the criminals. We’ve had a problem for years. Congress ignored the problem. No wonder Arizona is taking action.

Profile me!

If they start profiling elderly Caucasian men, I’ll start carrying my passport. If you see a man in a mask with a gun, you don’t assume he’s a high school kid on his way home. You check him out. We profile all the time. That’s the way the law is enforced. The fuss about profiling is misplaced. We need to profile kids with cans of spray paint, for example. Let’s let law enforcement to do their job!

Elect me

I’m surprised that all the candidates trash their opposition. I’d like to see one say, “I want to be elected to Congress and try to work with the other party to pass good legislation for the good of the country.” Instead they brag that they opposed laws and “Just say No,” or they claim they supported the same laws. A little co-operation between the parties would be a wonderful change and we might get better laws to benefit all of us.


As I was admitted the hospital for a procedure, the clerk asked for my wrist,saying, “I’m going to give you a bracelet. “

“Has it got Rubies and Diamonds ?” I ask coyly.

“No,” he said. “But it costs just as much.”

Love these kids

*A little boy: “Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it. I’m having a real good time like I am.”

*After the dedication of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally Jason replied, “That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys.”

*A mother had been teaching her three-year old daughter the Lord’s Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after her mom the lines from the prayer. Finally she decided to go solo. Mommy listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us some E-mail. Amen.”

*A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?” “I wouldn’t know what to say,” the girl replied. “Just say what you hear Mommy say,” the wife answered. The daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
