"Billy Graham drives a Limo..." 'Obama Da Dog' (Source- from somewhere on Facebook)

Obama Da Dog would like to share this recent story  she found on Facebook...



Billy Graham drives a Limo

Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home. As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver. 'You know' he said, 'I am 87 years old and I have never Driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?' The driver said, 'No problem. Have at it.' 

Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap. The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.

 The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo then got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure. The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor.

 I know we are supposed to enforce the law.... but I also know that important people are given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person.' The supervisor asked, 'Is it the governor?' The young trooper said, 'No, he's more important than that.' The supervisor said, 'Oh, so it's the president.' The young trooper said, 'No, he's even more Important than that.

 After a moment,the supervisor finally asked, 'Well then, who is it?' The young trooper said, 'I think it's Jesus, because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!'

via Facebook,"You discredit yourself, Jim, by continuing to praise this proven anti-Semite. You don't' grow older, and evolve into a non-prejudicial person; you just become more tactful and careful in representing the sentiments. In your quest for personal relevance, sadly, you seek validation by naming your dog, Obama, and more seriously, lauding a man with disreputable character. How you can forget his recorded words is akin to overlooking the pre-Holocaust pronouncements of Hitler, thinking he really didn't mean them. Claiming you are a rabbi, and showing this man's picture, suggesting he is a decent human being, is a conflict of terms."

Happy new year Myron. Myron this is a joke, you take everything so serious. Myron you over-intellectualize everything, sometimes just enjoy a joke and chill...

Oh for Pete’s sake, Myron — no one could possibly excuse ME as being a defender of this man who, despite a good heart and the kind of good intentions to which the road to hell is paved, was definitely a bigot against Jews and African Americans.

But for goddess sake, Myron, it was a joke and it was funny.
For my views on Christian mythology, and how Billy Graham regurgitates the message of the renegade “apostle” Paul that completely contradicts the teachings attributed to the JEWISH RABBI named Jesus (aka Yeshua, Joshua bar Joseph), see one of my web pages at:

via Facebook," I don't see humor in honoring, or giving even deferential distinction to anti-Semites. Obviously, you ,have more tolerance. This is black and white. With reference to my being serious, I'll take that as a supreme compliment. I ignore most of your self-serving fluff; but when you post imagery and verbiage that could EVEN be seen as a credit to such individuals, I sound off. Count on it. Joke, if you must, about things that are funny. The words of a bigot remind me, too well, about struggles I experienced in my youth. I'm sorry you don't understand where the lines should be drawn, RABBI."

KimoRosen said...

Davis, there are folks out there that cannot laugh... I think it was a pretty funny punch line. This is not religious, it is a funny joke that i am betting even Billy Graham would laugh at himself in this joke.

Davis D. Danizier (3-D) said...

Kimo — I agree with Myron that there is no humor in honoring an anti-Semitic bigot. Where I disagree is that THIS IS A JOKE — it is not “honoring” this bigot, it is holding him up for ridicule.

KimoRosen said...

Again Myron, a friend of mine Chester Lau (Unc) calls me Rabbi, it is in fun. It would be like me calling you Governor, or Senator which I do with some friends who are into politics and handle a joke... Rabbi is used in fun, again, Myron you cannot joke, try it. you may enjoy it.

KimoRosen said...

P.S. Myron, did you even read the joke, or did you just sound off after seeing an image of Billy Graham?

Myron Rosenberg said...

via Facebook;" Billy Graham and his instigator, Richard Nixon, should rot in Hell. If they have any value, it is only to be used as a bad example, nothing more. It is clear that Rosen did not grow up in an environment where antisemitism was rampant. I did. But, some people learn from the experiences of others, and don't have to, personally, experience the pain and, in my case, fear, of simply walking home from school. It is pathetic that he is oblivious to the sociological underpinnings of prejudice, and how, if the words, themselves, are not challenged, then unacceptable behaviors can be soon expected to follow. This treatise on prejudice should be unnecessary for any Jew; it is remarkable that this simple minded (tacit) endorsement would be from the hands of one.

On a separate note, you will forgive my ignorance, even though I taught Sociology; I have no knowledge of people being called Rabbi in the American culture, as a figure of speech. For that matter, since you mentioned it to substantiate your verbiage, I have no familiarity with people calling others Governor, if they were not a Governor. Maybe, you are thinking of the script for Pygmalion, (My Fair Lady,) where the term, 'Gov'nor' is used. It is not used in the U.S., nor is Senator, for those who have not been one. Your words are like reading revisionist history. Just because you say it, doesn't make it so.

About humor, if you say something funny…which has become infrequently rare…I will indicate my enjoyment. If you even suppose to dignify an anti-Semite, you will hear more rebukes. My mother would say you should be ashamed of yourself. Get in touch. You disappoint me, Rabbi."

Myron Rosenberg said...

via facebook;"You may not be aware, but it illegal to represent yourself with a rank or a service record that was not earned or experienced. You don't hear people being called 'General' if they were not one, except, perhaps, in 'your world."

Linda Meyers said...

My parents used to call my oldest sister Senator. I am pretty sure they weren't breaking any laws...

KimoRosen said...

Linda, remember my friend Herbert, I use to call him Governor, sometimes even Pastor, all in fun...

Linda Meyers said...

Yes, I don't think it's uncommon here to call someone by a nickname like that. Governor, Rabbi, Colonel, etc.

Harmony Bentosino said...

I would like to say something, but it is hard to speak up without offending Myron. Watching his reactions to other posts can be thrilling like watching a train wreck.

KimoRosen said...

Harmony, say what your thinking!

Harmony Bentosino said...

That was pretty much it. I empathize with you having been on the receiving end myself before.

Myron Rosenberg said...

Via facebook,"Linda, you may know someone that you call Humpty Dumpty; but, you will not find this in common usage. And, that, is my point. I'd wager money that Rosen will not be able to produce one other person who is called Rabbi, who has not earned the title. Therefore, his self-proclaimed reference is esoteric, and he might as well refer to himself as President, (since his dog is already, 'there'.)

Just ride your dog, and be silent, if you your words do not contribute, Harmony. Slurring my posts, by innuendo, is neither appreciated or credible. If you take exception to anything I have said, here or elsewhere, just state your objection. Otherwise, may I categorize your comment as pure BS, playing to your friend?"

Linda Meyers said...

That's why I was posting, to point out it might be a bit more common than you thought.

KimoRosen said...

Actually Myron in my Chabad group of friends we all call each other Rabbi in fun...
