moe's barber shop

Once upon a time, a florist went to a barber for a haircut.

After his trimming, the florist asked the barber how much he owed him. The barber replied, "Nothing, I can't accept any money from you, I'm doing community service this week." The florist was pleased and grateful and left the shop.
When the barber came to open his shop the next morning, there was a "Thank You" Card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later that same day, a cop stopped in for a haircut. When he tried to pay for the service, the barber again replied, "I can't accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week." The cop, too, was pleased and grateful and
left the shop.
The next morning when the barber came to open his shop, there was a "Thank You" Card and a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then, just before closing time, a Congressman came in for a haircut. When he tried to pay his bill, the barber again replied, "I can't accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week." The Congressman was pleased and grateful and left the shop.
When the barber came to open his shop the following morning, there were two dozen Congressmen lined up at his shop waiting for a free haircut.

. . .and that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the knucklehead politicians who run it.

Hey art, I sent you an email but forgot to include a link to this incredible video you need to see. Just google "Freedom to Fascism" by Aaron Russo. Here's a link to reviews and the DVD at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/America-Freedom-Fascism-Michael-Ruppert/dp/B000JVSUSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1265904020&sr=8-1-catcorr

he made this video documenting the truth behind income taxes, etc, then he suddenly died of a fast onset of cancer. Quite scary and suspicious in my opinion. -Sonja

Nice post.

I say,
The emphasis of a barber school's education is to teach the essentials of providing hair and skin services for men. They often learn to perform razor styling, hair cutting and coloring, blow drying, foam shaves, steam facials, and facial massages.
Using a good hair salon is key to great hair care. But how do you select the right hair salon from the many choices available?
You can do to guarantee that you always receive the best hair cuts, latest professional techniques and stellar service is to choose the right hair salon. Granted, that is easier said than done. With hair salons on practically every street corner, narrowing down your options to find the right salon can be confusing.
