America the Right Way-Staying Vigilant-23 months left Feb.19-20,2011 Weekend Edition-Remember 9/11

Good morning!

We’ll be watching Madison, WI again today as opponents and supporters of the Governor there face off in rallies.

The U.S. House last night passed a continuing resolution to fund the federal government. 61 billion in cuts are part of the bill which now heads to the Senate. But an amendment to make further cuts, supported by conservative Rs., was defeated when that party split its vote: not a good sign, and sure to anger the R base, and encourage the Left.

      Jemian, Mozartlover … IF it came to pass that the gov could declare the Dems seats abandoned, and fill them himself .. instead of appointing Republican cronies, he really should pick a name at random out of the phone book from each of their districts, to make the point that folks would be better served, as Buckley said, by X unknown individuals out of the phone book than by those elected to ‘serve’ them.

  1. Prairie says:

    I really like the Andrew Brietbart video you linked Molly. We need a lot more people willing to take a verbal stand. I don’t know who that guy is, but he’s spot on.

    • Jemian says:

      What is the weather doing in WI?

    • Prairie says:

      Freezing rain with temps that feel like 18. A winter weather advisory is in place until noon tomorrow. Also wind.

    • mozartlover says:

      That’s down south. Up here, and for most of the state, there’s a winter storm warning until noon tomrrow and about a foot of snow expected.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      prairie Breitbart is a Hollywood-based conservative activist…I expect there’d be some opinions of his you and I would have problems with, but for the most part he is a conservative and has a couple of websites at least with those views…

    • Jemian says:

      Yes, but if the RATS are out of state for 72 hours, 3 days, their seats can be declared vacant, right? And the Gov can appoint his choice of people to fill those seats until a special election, right? Pray for blocking snow!

      (Disclaimer: I am not familiar w/ Wisconsin’s laws and may have this wrong.)

  2. Jemian says:

    Live stream of the start of the Iron Dog. Go Todd!

  3. Prairie says:

    Happy Lord’s Day everybody. I just saw the interview of Gov. Walker on Chris Wallace’s show. The governor did well, he does look tired……can’t imagine why….

    I’m off to check the news, maybe a nap, maybe a hot-tub later…

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Poor man, but he’s used to these tangles.

      Congrats to the good folks in WI who elected him!

    • mozartlover says:

      Molly, that’s a far cry from a comment on facebook yesterday; a unviersity professor I work with regularly actually posted “Shame on everyone who voted for him!”

      I deactivated my FB account shortly after reading that, and about a million other negative comments from other profs and students. I don’t need the aggravation.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Understand the aggravation, MozartLover… what gets me is that the Leftists so often assume everyone agrees with them…so a comment like that becomes a piece of unwelcome garbage on your FB page.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning everybody….didn’t get back here yesterday as planned due to longer than expected event yesterday, AND when I did get home…found a sick cat and a slightly unnerved husband.

    So several plans for the rest of the day went out the window.

    Also very behind in the news.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Molly, I hope your cat is better this morning and your hubby is his likeable self once again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • edinva says:

      Good morning, Molly, everyone

      Thanks for breakfast, lysie.

      What little news I did catch yesterday really infuriated me with the docs in WI who were handing out ‘sick slips’ for the protesting teachers. What a disgrace. I can’t imagine there won’t be complaints filed with the medical licensing board AND, more important, their professional liability insurance carriers.

      Another sunny day here in Northern VA, not so warm compared to the past few days, but wonderful compared to past few months. It’s all relative.

      Here’s hoping you each have a beautiful and blessed day.

    • tillacum says:

      How is the cat today? Hopefully as soon as you took charge of sick cat, hubby was back to his normal self.
      Today we’re helping put together tables, chairs, etc for the Republican President’s Day dinner tomorrow evening.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      lysie, ED, All Good afternoon!

      lysie, my cat is better, but I’m beginning to think he’s losing weight. Fortunately, later in the week, he’s going in to the vet…already has an appt….

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      ha, ha… till, my husband was a little discombulated, that’s about all…he was trying to get some work done, and had to keep paying attention to the cat instead, but he really was really pretty good about it.

  5. Prairie says:

    Haaaa! I checked out the forecast for Madison….tonight snow developing, tomorrow a “wintery mix” with 2-4 inches accumulation and 15-25 mph winds, Monday snow showers with highs in the mid-20’s.

    That might take some of the wind out of the leftie’s sails.

    • Bitwhacker says:

      Got this from a friend from Wisconsin over on FB — very interesting:

      “…Senate Rule 91 has a 72 hour clock on it… meaning the senators have to be gone for 72 hours before the Quorum Rule can be changed…There are also provisions in the state constitution to deem them as having abandoned their seats but it’s really a long process… but in the end Governor Walker could appoint ALL republicans to fill those vacated seats for the remainder of their terms… the Governor does not have to hold special elections if the seats are deemed abandoned… [but] its much more efficient to just wait the 72 hours and change the Quorum Rule…”

      Ha! They’ve been out 48 hours already, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Prairie says:

      That’s interesting, Walker should replace all of them. FoxNews just forecast 4-9 inches in Madison.

      Fox is reporting that people who may or may not actually be doctors are going around the crowd issuing medical sick-notes so people can stay out of work. A Fox Business producer posed as a unionista, asked the female “doctor” if she wanted to see any ID, the doctor didn’t need that, just wrote her a note for the length of time she wanted. Fox anchor asked the FBN producer if it was a real doctor and she responded that the woman was “wearing a white coat and that was pretty much it.”

    • Jemian says:

      You mean this stand-off might be over by Monday morning. I really hope so and that the Gov will indeed appoint all republicans in the RATS place.

  6. Prairie says:

    A View From Wisconsin Blood pressure alert, everybody. Grrrrrr.!

  7. 4littlebears says:

    Feel better till. that’s an order! LOL!

    It’s really windy here in Northern VA too. Today the traffic lights were out at every corner for about 5 mikles traveling E/W in Rt 50 in Fairfax/Chantilly.

  8. Prairie says:

    That could apply either to WI or TX.

  9. Prairie says:

    Playing around with the gravatars.

  10. Prairie says:

    Good afternoon everybody.

  11. Jemian says:

    I just noticed something. There are no keywords here! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Awwww! No more fun.

  12. Bitwhacker says:

    I don’t know if this was in anybody’s links, but you have to check out this article:

    CBS News takes NOAA Fisheries Management to the woodshed

    …and if you can, watch the actual 4-minute CBS news report of how these fisherman in Mass. got royally screwed by their own gov’t over trivial things like paperwork errors, how they were intimidated, threatened and some put out of business, and how, when an Inspector General came around to look at the files, NOAA had a ‘shredding party’ in which the head of NOAA ‘enforcement’ admitted that he got rid of 80% of his files. And, this guy wasn’t fired, he was just made an ‘analyst’ somewhere else in the monolith… I am just shocked that CBS told the truth, although it should have been a 60 Minutes half-hour with grilling interviews… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. edinva says:

    Good morning, everyone !!

    Thanks, Jemian and tillacum for your good wishes. My husband came home yesterday and is ever so happy to be here! He claims to have had enough fun with hospitals for a while. A good, long while!

    We have a light note for today after all the not-so-fun adventures of the past month or so. It’s kind of weird, BUT .. one of our sons is going to be on America’s Most Wanted tonight. As an ‘actor’ portraying a serial killer. How proud can a mother be ?? My son the serial rapist/murderer! He was recruited in the absence of a pro meeting the required 30-something, scuzzy, bearded white guy requirements. They had to age him some and do other Hollywood makeup tricks, but at least he overall fit the bill. He has ONE line. It tickles me that he’s in such a horrific role because he’s as straight, in every way, as it gets! So, if you’re free tonight, and want to watch, it’ll be shown on Fox’s regular network. 9p EST. I don’t know about elsewhere.

    We’re enjoying yet another sunny, warmish day.. not as warm as the past 2, but maybe mid-50’s (and heading down over the next couple of days before coming back up). Nice, open-window weather. At least for this 3-day weekend, kids can play outside, so I am sure mothers of school-aged kids throughout the region are pleased. It’s supposed to be lovely Monday, so I may go into the City of Alexandria for the George Washington’s Birthday (as it’s still called here) parade. This is GW’s hometown, so they are not about to go for that “President’s Day” nonsense!

    I am hoping you all have a beautiful, blessed day.

    • 4littlebears says:

      Hi EdinVA, which hospital was hubby in? Glad he’s home and happy.

      We had 25 kids at Tim’s Reading/Movie club last night. it was a hoot with 24 14 and under kids. They sure can eat the snacks! Most of them go to Poplar Tree E. S.

      The wind is blowin’ everything around today – including me!


    • edinva says:

      4Little, … looks like maybe your power got blown away? Did you see the National Christmas Tree got blown down? We go there every year and only in my relaying the news did one of my adult sons realize it’s not like the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, (or home) where a new one is cut down and brought in every year.

      Hubby was first at INOVA Fair Oaks; then INOVA Mt. Vernon. Think of it as a medical time share. We’re trying to make the rounds ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Prairie, I tried today to do the picture and it wasn’t working for me, either. I have a great Catherine Zeta Jones that I use and try to convince people looks JUST LIKE me.

    Lysie is testing for Toby.

  15. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    “…That the protesters speak in a different voice can be seen in the signs they carry. Many compare Mr. Walker to Hitler, Mussolini or Hosni Mubarak. One placard had the slogan โ€œRepeal Walkerโ€ with the governorโ€™s head in sniperscope cross hairs. This is the symbolism that Democrats recently denounced as โ€œhate-filled rhetoric,โ€ and it is far from the voice of the public. It is rather the voice of an entitled class that seeks by any means to stop its free ride from coming to an end.”

  16. Jemian says:

    Good morning, Molly, lysie Thank you for getting us started today. Breakfast looks good.

    Edinva, prayers up for the challenges you and your husband face. I hope today will be well for you.

    My neighbor has one daffodil open. Mine should open any day now. The sky is clear, temps should be warm today and I expect to be outside. I am still upset by the act of pure meanness by that one individual. Bama has formed a “Tide For Toomers” group and has already raised over $18,000 to help with the treatment or removal.

    Several years ago, a business in Auburn blew up and caused damage for about one square city block. My question is “WHERE WAS HARVEY UPDYKE WHEN THE KOPPER KETTLE BLEW UP?” /silliness

  17. Molly Pitcher says:

    Thank YOU lysie I’m heading out to a Women’s retreat at church, and will be back late in the afternoon…

    Everyone have a good, safe day. It’s still VERY windy out there!

  18. lysie says:

    Thanks for the start, Molly.
    Good morning everyone.

    • tillacum says:

      Good Morning everyone. Watching to see what happens in WI.
      I’ve been under the weather for about 4 days and it ain’t fun.
      Toby, come on over and visit. We’re missing you.
