America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant-9 months left May 28, 2012 – June 1, 2012 Remember 9/11

Hello!

Memorial Day Weekend continues, and I hope it’s a safe and enjoyable one for you!

It’s hard to believe that it’s not June yet, and the campaign ads and attacks are already so strong & frequent. The conventions are months away, and the election even more months away. What will it be like in mid-October?

Perhaps the upcoming WI election gives us some clues as to intensity & outcome…and perhaps our being able to survive it all. We’ll see.

    Good evening everybody! We’ve been in a whirlwind of traveling, visiting hubby’s sister and b-i-l and of course, running the business in the process. I’ve been relegated to getting my news from FoxNews so I’m glad to have a moment to check in, thanks for the links everyone who posted them.

    We did receive some bad news on a health problem that hubby’s sister has developed. Will post more as things develop, hopefully surgery will correct it.

      Glad you’re ok..travel working out…keep us posted on your prayer needs.

      I have cousins travelling now in Israel…they are about 1/2 way thru their Moody Bible Study tour, so I’m thinking of them every day.

    Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Molly, was O’s stupid comment reported on network TV?

      I’m deeply offended by his remarks.

      Greg’s paternal and maternal grandparents emigrated here from communist Poland. One grandfather raised 6 children and worked in a foundry. Greg’s dad was one of those children. He was a religious and hardworking man. He did construction on the Syracuse University Dome. He also helped us build our house.

      His mom’s father raised seven children. He had a willow basket/furniture business. He grew the willow, processed it and weaved it. During the Depression their house was foreclosed, but later his business thrived and he bought it back. When I was young I remember going with my gram to by the baskets.

      Hey, O’Bozo, top that !!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, that phrase was horrible, and in the circumstances too, in which it was made.

      He was using a teleprompter, too, right? No unintentional mess-up.

      Much appreciation for Greg’s family and their strength here.

    Dr. Sowell, an exceptionally intelligent man with common sense and no snobbery. Oh, how I wish more people knew about him and his teachings!

    In the real world, many things are done simply because they have to be done, not because doing them brings immediate pleasure to those who do them. Some people take justifiable pride in working to take care of their families, whether or not the work itself is great.

    Exactly! It’s called being responsible.

    We got our rain…along with thunder and lightning. Power was off in some areas.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We had a stronger storm roll thru late afternoon…it’s cooled off too..

      Dr. Sowell’s common sense. Thank goodness for his long life and his many writings…that’s all …..

  6. Molly Pitcher says:

    Texas Primary Day…will there be a run off?

  7. lysie says:

    Feel better soon.

  8. Jemian says:

    Good morning! The breakfast looks yummy!

    I wish someone would send some rain our way. We could definitely use it.

    I was supposed to head up to B’ham for an eye check-up. But a bad headache put the kibosh on that. The pain meds have worn off and the new dose hasn’t kicked in yet so this is the little moments of lucidity. I’ll be drifting back to sleep any moment now. I’ll be better tonight or tomorrow probably.

  9. Molly Pitcher says:

    We broke some heat records in the area yesterday, and severe storms may be on hand today.

    Didn’t you have some pass thru your area yesterday a.m. lysie? I caught TWC mid-morning….

    Lots of violence in Chicago over the weekend…another records broken, it sounds like…

      As a youngster this gentleman taught me all about Decoration/Memorial Day. I was honored to help him place flags on the graves of veterans at many cemeteries in CNY.

      Thank you Gramp.

Buell is remembered by all who knew him as travelling miles during Memorial Day seasons to make certain that every veteran’s grave in every cemetery for many miles around was marked with an American flag; and maintained constant personal contact with the members of the area’s veterans organizations, working actively in the best interest of those who fought for their country;

    • Jemian says:

      Good morning! Lysie, what a great legacy of a great man!

      Finally, after much labor and study, I have unveiled our updated web site. It is at http://www.mmlott.org.

      I am remembering those who have fought for this country’s freedom and also those who have volunteered to help keep us free.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      lysie wonderful Memorial Day memory and tribute to your Grandfather. What a special man!

      Hi Jemian…congrats on your website. I know that’s been a goal and project of yours for sometime now.

  11. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning! Did I delete the right posts Raven ?

  12. The Raven says:

    Zero playing fast and loose with the debt problem was disgusting

    – If he has no clue spending is a problem and thinks he is in line with previous administrations, then that is an impeachable offense.

    – If he knows and is purposely acting like a clueless teenager and lying through his teeth, then that is something to shake our collective heads at and wonder as a nation how we could have done it.

    – The lefties where I work are still goo goo gaga over him and believe all of this nonsense.

    • The Raven says:

      Clinton had the Reagan peace dividend — substantial defense downsizing.

    • lysie says:

      Yes and Newt.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, I heard Steve Moore discussing Clinton’s record in this area. Just as you say, he was living off a lot of Reagan’s policy dividends with the help and restraint of the R Congress after 1994.

      Moore wanted to give Clinton some credit too, for adjusting after the ’94 election, unlike 0 after the ’10 election.

    • lysie says:

      Moore wanted to give Clinton some credit too, for adjusting after the ’94 election, unlike 0 after the ’10 election.

      As much as I didn’t like Clinton, I’d take him over O any day.
