America the Right Way – Staying Vigilant April 13 and April 14 , 2013 ( Weekend Edition)

One of the most evil quotes of the week goes to Melissa Harris-Perry who said, “We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had a private notion of children; your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.”

Rain, rain go away.

    Good morning everyone. We were away most of the afternoon attending a “fish” party.
    Several months ago , one of Greg’s cousin, who is not an avid fisherman like Greg and his other cousins, caught a 40 inch Lake Trout on Skaneateles Lake. Catching a Lake Trout that size on Skaneateles is very rare.

    The cousins chipped in to have it mounted, thus the party. It was an unveiling so to speak. What fun they all had telling the fish story about the one who did not get away.

      lysie, what FUN! Always nice to have family together for a fun occasion.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      that does sound like fun…awhile back I was reading an article about Glacial Lake Iroquois…basically an enlarged version of L. Ontario, and where all that water went when the dam burst..

      Anyway, it reminded me of Wayne county and the lovely drumlins there

      Gosh another winter storm forming in the west.

      Today is Giambi’s first game starting…

    I am feeling really ignorant, ladies: who is Swisher?

    That Harris-Perry apparently teaches now at my dear daughter’s alma mater. She came after sainted daughter had graduated, thank God. BUT when she was a student there another woman professor started off class on Day One with anti-Repubican, anti-Bush (then-POTUS) comments. That prof at least had the decency later to apologize. I can’t even imagine a mea culpa from Harris-Perry because she herself is so indoctrinated she can see absolutely nothing wrong with her comments. You could try to educate her till you’re blue in the face, would do no good whatsoever.

    Today is the culmination of the annual Cherry Blossom festivities. Parade this morning, all kinds of stuff going on on the Mall and around the city. Nice but somewhat overcast day, not hot, barely chilly. My kind of temps. Within ten days we went from Winter to Spring to Summer, back to Spring. Yesterday I was looking at some trees that a week ago were bare and are now green. I’d have sworn they were getting greener and leafier as I was watchin, that’s how fast it’s happening.

    Jemian, my prayers are continuing for your guyz. And galz.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Swisher is a Force of Nature…otherwise known as a former Yankee – thus lysie’s knowledge of him – and now Indian, thus mine. He used to be an outfielder, but he’s transitioning very easily to 1st Base. He’s a Buckeye, thru and thru having gone to OSU

      Jemian Thanks for the update yesterday…prayers continue for Eric and Steven right? maybe I misspelled his name..

      How was the concert Raven ?

      The Valley is coming alive these days…finally…and the Great Blue Heron nesting site carefully watched and photographed. It seems to attract more people every year.

    • The Raven says:

      Molly….It was a C to C minus.

      The Four Tops and the Temps both had only one remaining original and the replacements were bordering on terrible…..off tune and screechy. I had seen them maybe 25 years ago and they had most originals then and maybe one replacement…..much better then.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh that’s too bad…just not like the originals or your memories of them..

  3. lysie says:

    I ask you. How can someone NOT like Swisher and his excitement?

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    De humanizing word games Gosnell-style NRO…this story just sticks in my heart and mind

    The Left’s ideas lead to slavery, destruction, death

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning!

      We played a really wonderful game last night…pitcher’s duel going into the bottom of the 9th, then the batter got a hit driving in the SOLE run of the game. And the batter? Swisher! He was so excited, he almost went into orbit…. I love games like that…no score whatsoever for 8 and 1/2 innings. It was beautiful, and the fans in the ballpark seemed to appreciate it too.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      In Britain in the Seventies, everything that could be nationalized had been nationalized, into a phalanx of lumpen government monopolies all flying the moth-eaten flag: British Steel, British Coal, British Airways, British Rail . . . The government owned every industry — or, if you prefer, “the British people” owned every industry. And, as a consequence, the unions owned the British people. The top income-tax rate was 83 percent, and on investment income 98 percent. No electorally viable politician now thinks the government should run airlines and car plants and that workers should live their entire lives in government housing. But what seems obvious to all in 2013 was the bipartisan consensus four decades ago, and it required an extraordinary political will for one woman to drag her own party, then the nation, and subsequently much of the rest of the world back from the cliff edge.

      Yeah, the Nazis believed in raising children too…not the parents who couldn’t be trusted, but the state. Wish someone on our side would make that connection….how fascistic those disgusting beliefs are.
