Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray

We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

We're slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

But Lord, I'd like to take a few minutes more
To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know

Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person invited

Thank you for a nice offer for formaldehyde turkey,
I am sure it must be tasty.

There's 2 charming ladies cooking a meal fit for kings, and the food or their home is safe from pollutants.

Still have a nice meal with your family and friends.

This is a day of blessing, because of caring people.

Leslie Davis to
re-release Always Cheat.
In response to Jesse Ventura announcing another book of garbage for spring 2008 release, Leslie Davis has scheduled a spring 2008 re-release of his book that knocked Ventura out of office.
Davis' book appeared at book stores such as Barnes & Noble, and many libraries, in April 2002 and Ventura announced his retirement in June 2002.
Davis said today, "In addition to a special "Always Cheat" web site set for February 2008, I plan to do several interesting promotional events surrounding my book's re-release around April 1, 2008, that will get Ventura the attention he craves and identify his network of slime like John Wodele, Dean Barkley, Steven Bosacker, Susan Gaertner, Charlie Weaver, Charles Balck and Thomas Heffelfinger."

Facts I want you to know about Jesse Ventura
by Leslie Davis

Killed caged birds at a game farm with Maria Shriver in 1998.

Told single moms that they were on their own regarding government help.

Told University of Minnesota students to, “win if you can, lose if you must, but ALWAYS CHEAT.”

Supported a raid at Highway 55 where more than 600 police arrested and tortured 17 peaceful protesters. My colleague Henry Fieldseth was one of the people tortured. Henry was handcuffed and pepper spray was put in his eyes.

Told young people that if they were smart enough to go to college they should be able to figure out how to pay for it. Yet when he went to school the government paid for him.

The pot heads actually elected Ventura. Enough young people liked what he said about pot, even if they didn’t smoke, and they showed up on election day and put him over the top. Check it out and you will see that the pot head vote put him in office.

Lied about being a Navy SEAL in Vietnam. If he was a SEAL in Vietnam he would have the Combat Action Ribbon. He doesn’t have it.

Told Star Tribune columnist Dennis Anderson that you haven’t hunted until you’ve hunted man. The only man Ventura may have hunted would have been in a Hennepin Avenue bookstore.

As governor he was terrible on the environment. He appointed Karen Studders from Minnegasco to head the Pollution Control Agency, canceled the auto emission testing program, allowed animal factories throughout the state to expand and failed to implement a proper energy plan for the state...and more.

Supported light rail (LRT) on Hiawatha Avenue, a location where a bus doesn’t even run. Ventura and his associates (Tynklenberg, Mondale, et al) lied when they said LRT would cost less than $500 million. It is now well over $700 million and rising.

Appointed Ted Mondale to head the Metropolitan Council. Mondale had his staff person, Nacho Diaz, lie to the feds about the ridership potential of LRT. Based on the false figures by Diaz the feds gave Minnesota hundreds of millions of dollars.

Mismanaged state finances. The economic downturn was apparent before 9/11 but Ventura was too busy promoting his private money making ventures to see it. The tax cuts and rebates he promoted and endorsed broke the State of Minnesota and contributed to our lower credit rating today. The State Investment Board also suffered incredible losses while he was on the Board.

Insulted people who were religious, overweight or mentally ill. He called U.S. Army personnel “pukes.” He called retired Army Master Sergeant Dick Franson a puke, When SEAL Commander Salisbury said Ventura was a phony SEAL Ventura called him a puke.

Drove out of office, Employee Relations Commissioner Karen Carpenter, and Ethics Officer Sandra Hyllengren, because they warned Ventura that his SummerSlam referee event planned for August 1999 was a conflict of interest. Ventura replaced them with Julien Carter, an out of town stooge, who supported Ventura. I sued on the conflict of interest and the judge did not rule on the merits of my case but ruled that I did not have “standing” under the statute to bring the lawsuit. The media misinterpreted her order by reporting that the judge cleared the way for Ventura to do the wrestling event. The media got it wrong.

Bribed Bill Dahn to leave the Reform Party in July 1998. Dahn had registered to run for governor in the Reform Party in order to complain about an improper government sponsored insulation program that contaminated his house. Ventura wanted Dahn out of the Reform Party so he wouldn’t have competition in the September primary election and could keep his KFAN radio show. He lost the show anyway because Dick Franson warned KFAN that he would complain to the feds if they let Ventura stay on the air without giving equal time to his opponents. Doug Friedline and, secretary Mavis Huddle arranged for Ventura and campaign committee chairman Dean Barkley to go to Dahn’s house on July 19, 1998 and promise to fix his house if he would leave the Reform Party and register as a Republican. The media reported that the bribe was a $600 fee Barkley paid for Dahn to register as a Republican after leaving the Reform Party. It was not. The bribe was the promise to fix Dahn’s house. I have significant evidence that Barkley worked to fulfill the bribe. However, after Ventura was elected Barkley lost interest in Dahn and Dahn lost his house.

Fixed the investigation of the Dahn bribe. Complaints were filed against Barkley and Ventura for bribing Dahn. The complaints were filed with Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner. When Gaertner received the complaints she should have immediately declared a conflict of interest because her employee/lover John Wodele was a personal friend of Barkley’s. Gaertner held the case until after Ventura was elected and in December she declared a conflict of interest and sent the case to Anoka County to be fixed. Charlie Weaver (former Anoka County prosecutor), Phil Villaume (Barkley attorney and brother-in-law), Thomas Heffelfinger (Ventura attorney), Wodele, Barkley, Weber (Anoka County prosecutor) and Charles Balck (Assistant Ramsey County Attorney), fixed the results and Weber announced them on December 31, 1998 (New Years Eve Day). It took 161 days to get a decision on the bribery complaints. The media blew this one too.

December 28, 1998, unemployed John Wodele, boyfriend of Gaertner, was rewarded for helping with the fix by being named Ventura Communications Director.

December 31, 1998, Anoka County prosecutor attorney Weber dismissed the bribery complaints against Barkley and Ventura.

January 2, 1999, unemployed Charlie Weaver was appointed Commissioner of Public Safety as his reward for fixing the bribery case in Anoka County. Barkley had set Weaver up for the fix by having him appointed to Ventura’s transition advisory committee on November 17, 1998. Weaver was Governor Pawlenty’s Chief of Staff and is now the chief schmuck with the Minnesota Business Partnership.

January 6, 1999, Barkley was appointed Director of Minnesota Planning.

February 4, 1999, James Weber, Anoka County prosecutor who dismissed the bribery complaints, was appointed to the Governor’s Commission on Judicial Selection.
