    A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.
    Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her
    inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.


    The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

    Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
    A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'
    The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'
    The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page...
    So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'

    The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.'
    The journalist leaves.
    The following morning the biker buys the paper to see news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

    U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT
    AND STEALS HIS LUNCH

    That pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days.

    A preacher wanted to raise money for his church, 
    and being told there was a fortune in horse 
    racing, he decided to purchase a horse and enter 
    it in the races. However, at the local auction, 
    the going price for horses was so high that the 
    preacher settled on a donkey instead. The preacher 
    figured, since he bought the animal, he might as 
    well race it. To his great surprise, the donkey 
    did quite well and came in third place. The next 
    day, the racing sheets carried this headline: Preacher Shows Ass The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that 
    he entered it in the races again, and this time 
    the animal won first place. The paper said: Preacher`s Ass Out In Front The Bishop was so upset with this kind of 
    publicity that he ordered the preacher not to 
    enter the donkey in any more races. The newspaper 
    printed this headline:
