______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, Somerset, Texas
Non-American citizen arrested for voting in Texas FIVE times faces up to 20 years A Texas woman, who is not a citizen of the United States, was arrested Friday for having illegally voted in Dallas County five times. Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, is presently a resident of the Tarrant County Jail, where she is being held on a $10,000 bond, according to the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate Channel 5 News, which reported: Ortega is married to an American and is living legally in this country, but is not a citizen and therefore, not qualified to vote, said Harry White, who supervises public integrity and white collar crime investigations for the Tarrant County District Attorney. Ortega applied to vote in Tarrant County and acknowledged on the application form that she was not a citizen, White said. The county rejected her application and notified her she was not qualified to vote. Having learned her lesson that only American citizens may vote in Texas, she re-applied five months later, this time claiming to be a U.S. citizen. Although Ortega never voted in Tarrant country, records indicate that she did so five times in neighboring Dallas county the earliest in a 2004 Republican primary, the latest in the 2014 Republican primary. Her charges illegal voting is a second degree felony, punishable by a two to 20 year prison sentence. A running battle between Republicans and Democrats is centered on voter ID laws. More than 30 states currently have some form of voter ID requirement. Republicans claim that such laws are necessary as a protection against voter fraud. Democrats claim stories of voter fraud are overblown and voter ID laws amount to voter suppression.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella Re: Desk height for typing Dear Webby, A kitchen table is between 29-30 inches high and a desk is about 27 inches high. For the keyboard it needs the pull-out tray that is at 25 inches from the floor. Noella Dear Noella For somebody as cute as you are, those numbers are probably qite OK. For the rest of us, the guidelines are: (For fastest typing speed without causing discomfort or carpal injury) Back straight, upper arms straight perpendicular, forearms level when the heel of the palm rests on the wrist rest of the keyboard. Luckily nowadays office chairs are cheaper than kitchen chairs and are adjustable in height. For Web-TVers and "Slouch-on-the-couch" FB activists those guidelines of course need to be adjusted a bit. DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Joe was on the phone and told his wife what a lousy day it'd been. She asked, "Will you be joining me in the hot tub tonight?" "Wow, how sweet. What a lovely way to spend an evening," he thought. He was just about to tell her how considerate and wonderful she was being when she continued: "'Cuz, if you're not, I need to start adding more water to the tub." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Rib-Eye and Roasted Garlic Vegetables This is a nice "put it in the oven and forget it" meal. The meat melts like butter in your mouth. It's so good. We found mixed mini potatoes on sale at the store instead of red potatoes and I forgot to put the onions in the bag, when I made the roast this time. It was still tasty and my kids did a better job eating it, so I might leave them out on purpose next time :) I really love the oven bags for easy meals. Rib-Eye Roast can be VERY expensive so keep an eye out for sales and you can always opt to use a cheaper cut of meat. Approximate Time: 2 1/4 hours Yield: 8 Ingredients: 1 large Reynolds Oven Bag 1 Tbsp flour 1 1/2 tsp oregano 3/4 tsp pepper 1/2 tsp salt 3-3 1/2 lb ribeye roast 1 1/2 lb small red potatoes, halved (I didn't half them) 1 pkg (16 oz) baby carrots 2 med. onions (I forgot them) 1 whole bulb garlic, unpeeled 1 Tbsp butter additional salt and pepper to taste Steps: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shake flour in oven bag. Place bag inside a large baking pan. Rub raw beef with oregano, pepper, and salt. Place beef in bag. Arrange veggies in an even layer around roast. Add extra salt and pepper if desired (I would recommend it). Cut 1 inch off the top of the garlic bulb and place in bag. I placed it top down on top of the meat. Close bag and cut 6 - 1/2 inch slits in the top of the bag. Cook for 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 hours or until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees (this took closer to 2 hours). Let meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Place vegetables and garlic in bowl and toss with 1 Tbsp. butter. Serve as a side with the sliced meat. I also served with green beans for some color and extra nutrition. Source: Reynolds By Stephanie [154] ______________________________________________________

Turn around now before it's too late!" They planned to hold up the sign to each passing car. "Get lost, you religious nuts!" yelled the first driver as he sped by. From around the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash. "Do you think," said one to the other, "it's maybe bad luck to use the back of a Madonna poster, or maybe we should instead put it in not so religious terms and make a sign that just says 'Bridge Out' ?" ___________________________________________________

the story of Jonah - told in the cutest way ____________________________________________________ We were listening to a lecture on psychic phenomena in our Comparative Religions course. Our instructor told us about a woman who was contacted by police to assist in a missing-persons case. "She gave eerily detailed instructions on where to find the body," the teacher said. "In fact, the detectives did find the body just as she had described. Now what would you call that kind of person?" While the rest of us pondered the question, a sheriff's officer taking the course raised his hand and replied, "A suspect." ____________________________________________________ The spammers from bratan.org sent me some spam asking me to sign their petition that the death penalty for murderers and terrorists be abolished.

A few days later, my boss called me into her office and asked if I could show her how to draw a line. Thinking she wanted something exotic, I searched for a way to draw a line for her. Turned out, all she wanted was to add a line after a prompt for filling in the name, like this: ____________________ On her typewriter you could only backspacen and then underline actualtext but not empty spaces.
