बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो

नसमाएको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मेरा हातहरु
नखोजेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मेरा साथहरु
नदेखाएको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो असली जातहरु
नकाटेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मसँग रातहरु!

नजोडेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मसँग नाताहरु
नओढेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो च्यातिएको छाताहरु
नखोलेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो उधारो खाताहरु
ननाघेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो सीमान्त हाताहरु!

नकोरेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो प्रेमका खाकाहरु
नमारेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो छुट्टिने टाँकाहरु
नगरेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मायाका वाचाहरु
नगाएको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो पिरतिका भाकाहरु!

नचोरेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो असल फेसहरु
नहारेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो जीवनका रेसहरु
नफेरेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो क्षणमै भेषहरु
नगरेको भए बरु बेस हुन्थ्यो मायाका गेसहरु!

NORMA WHITE : Guest Columnist

Each presidential candidate is giving his rendition of the changes he wants for America.

Here are few that I believe all Americans want.

# Limit Congress from serving more than two terms.That is all that presidents are allowed.
# Stop Congress from voting for their own raises. How did that ever get started?
# Stop paying for lawmakers' high-priced insurance premiums.After all, they are only part time employees.They might pass some law changes on the insurance companies, if they had to find one.
#Stop paying lawmakers their full salary after serving just one term, or at retirement. We need to get rid of that pension plan; they've let other companies get rid of theirs. You were lucky to get 40 to 50 percent of your salary after working somewhere for 35 years, but they get 100 percent.
# Make Congress pay into the Social Security system. They make laws for it. If they spent some of their own money, they might be interested in making it solvent.
# Stop handing our aid to illegal aliens. If we did, then Medicaid and the food stamp program would have enough money to aid aged and the poor.
# Secure our boarders.
# Stop allowing babies born to illegal aliens in the United States automatic U.S.citizenship.
# Stop the abuse of our benevolent welfare system. We feed children free meals three times a day until they are 17. Churches give away good, clean clothes. Companies buy and donate school supplies. Emergency rooms provide health care at taxpayers expense and the food stamp program is buying food at home. What are parents doing for their children?
# Have a computer program that cross checks Social Security numbers with finger prints to stop fraud on many fronts. Use it on voter registration, too.
# Stop bailing out mortgage companies and banks that give loans to people who can not afford them.
# Stop companies from paying CEOs and other executives outrageous salaries and bonuses while doing away with workers' pensions.
# Stop all unnecessary spending so we will have the money for our nation's security, and no help needy and elderly Americans.
# Stop permitting anyone to have a photo with their face covered on driver's licenses.

Whoever wins the presidency will not be able to make these changes.Only members of Congress can do this, as they are the lawmakers.

I don't believe Congress is interested in changing anything, do you?

This article is quite a few months back, but good one. Let our new president know this too.And hope he will do something for the nation.

Robert E. Lee would be 'very confused,' Obama jokes

The nation's first African-American president attended his first Alfalfa Club Dinner as commander in chief last night, and Barack Obama got into the spirit of the evening with jokes aimed at the dinner itself, his famously profane chief of staff and even himself.

According to the White House, among the jokes the president told were:

• "I am seriously glad to be here tonight at the annual Alfalfa dinner. I know that many you are aware that this dinner began almost one hundred years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of General Robert E. Lee. If he were here with us tonight, the general would be 202 years old. And very confused."

• "Now, this hasn't been reported yet, but it was actually Rahm's idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again. Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony."

"But don't believe what you read. Rahm Emanuel (Obama's chief of staff) is a real sweetheart.

"No, it's true. Every week the guy takes a little time away to give back to the community. Just last week he was at a local school, teaching profanity to poor children."

• "But these are the kind of negotiations you have to deal with as president. In just the first few weeks, I've had to engage in some of the toughest diplomacy of my life. And that was just to keep my BlackBerry.

"I finally agreed to limit the number of people who could e-mail me. It's a very exclusive list. How exclusive?

"Everyone look at the person sitting on your left. Now look at the person sitting on your right. None of you have my e-mail address."

As the Associated Press notes, among the others in attendance at the Capitol Hilton in Washington were 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain, a senator from Arizona, and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The dinner is supposed to be off-the-record, but reports of what was said always leak out.

Politico reports that:

Looking to Joe Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent-turned McCain supporter, Obama told the Connecticut senator he had no hard feelings.

The door is always open, Obama assured Lieberman, who observes the Sabbath, so feel to drop by -- any Saturday afternoon.

To Palin, Obama expressed surprise to see her with such members of the Washington elite she railed against during the campaign. Or, as he termed it in language Palin is familiar with, "palling around with this crew."

The Washington Post says that Lieberman, who also spoke, "noted that former vice president Richard B. Cheney injured himself while moving into his new home, according to a source inside the dinner. 'I had no idea waterboards were so heavy,' Lieberman quipped."

And, the Post reports:

The incoming club president, Sen. Christopher S. Bond, R-Mo. reminded guests that a newspaper recently published a list of the 25 people most responsible for the global economic meltdown. "You know who you are," he said, according to the source. "And it's good to see you here tonight."
