America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 5, 2014 – May 9, 2014 Remember 9/11


It sounds like Speaker Boehner may appoint a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi.

A prime candidate to head the committee would be Cong. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) who said today that he’s certain the 0bama administration is hiding more key documents concerning that night.

Dems in Congress are vowing to boycott any such hearings.

Welcome to Election Year, 2014.

In other news, free market economics lost a significant and productive figure this weekend: Gary Becker from the Univ. of Chicago School of Economics.

    Unfortunately, the Chilean economy (which Milton Friedman advised way back and has been on a 30 year run) will now run out of gas as they elected a Marxist and she is raising corporate taxes from 20% to 35% immediately!! Then – free education, etc.

  2. Prairie says:

    Where was O during Benghazi??

    Blowing coke and / or weed and sipping high priced cognac in the WH, I’d wager. TGIF everybody

    Good morning everyone.

      Good morning….more showery today, so will probably have to work around/thru that..been working in segments …lengthening segments…in the garden beds…think I can now salvage my rose bush.

    • lysie says:

      Wow! We had a huge, but quick downpour last night. Best of luck with your rose bush. I have one that is in a location that I don’t want. I’m going to move it today.

    “Dawg Pound, here we come”

    Congrats Molly on getting Johnny Football.

  5. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    “There are some in this building that think we can actually regulate [media]. The solution to that problem is to put the building to other use.”

    from James Taranto’s WSJ column – quoting FEC’s current chairman Lee Goodman (R) on whether the government can regulate Conservative media.

    Patricia Heaton is promoting her new movie: a family-oriented comedy with real people for Mother’s Day. Sounds like a load of fun, and I know everyone here is very fond of her….something to see in a movie theater with other people laughing. Sounds wonderful!

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    The boys were very pleased to see her..along with our dog and cats. Of course , Dad and Mom are happy as well. 🙂

    I have some blooms on my tomato plants. Some of my friends have green tomatoes, I can hardly
    wait for everything to ripen. I have pulled some onions, then read I wasn’t supposed to wash them.
    Oh well, they’re in the fridge and I’ll see if my yard man would like to take some home. They are
    so white and pretty. Now for the red ones to get ready. A friend has some really nice big red
    onions. I do love onion and Tillicum cheese sandwiches with mayo slathered kinda thick on both
    pieces of bread. yum.

  10. The Raven says:

    Sooooo…… Obama now going to pull the trigger on the bad stuff so that the hit to the nation is after he leaves? Bad stuff being… warming (high energy costs), minimum wage, immigration, taxes, defense reductions, and worse…..the attack on Republicans, the Tea Party, and the Constitution will continue and get worse (see Drudge today)

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    In the Not Good Economic news Department. And Brookings is no conservative think tank

    At sanctuary, retired race horses win a second chance at life

    Do we dare go to the open house? We may come back with a few. 🙂

  14. Molly Pitcher says:

    A.M. report…well, I’ve been to workout, stopping to vote on the way back home….primary day…

    Y’all are going to love this – NOT! – radio news reporting some study citing huge increase in serious highway accidents due to heavy, heavy trucks on roads for the drilling and fracking boom.

    There you have it…first railroad accidents, now highway deaths…

    • lysie says:

      Well, the libs should be for the pipeline then , right??? Too logical for them, though. They wouldn’t know logic if it hit them in the head with a 2 by 4.

  15. The Raven says:

    We are approaching Zero hour. The time where Zero makes his pronouncements on Global Climate Change….(better known as global warming). A competent President would have prepared thoroughly and may have gone something like this:

    President: Do I have this right? We are headed for a catastrophe based on 70 models predicting the effect of man-made greenhouse gases we are emitting.
    Staff: Yes Sir.
    President: And all 70 models have been wrong and have over-predicted temperature rises the past 15 years? In fact there has been no change in temperature the last 15 years?
    Staff: Yes Sir.
    President: And the emissions of China and India are such that even if the US had zero emissions, the models are still predicting a disaster.
    Staff: Yes Sir.
    President: Plus all research monies are paid to those finding catastrophic global warming and zero goes to those who do not find a problem? And when East Anglia didn’t find problems they covered it up? So we also have fraud? Do I have it right so far?
    Staff: Yes Sir. They don’t consider it fraud, Sir. They think they need to exaggerate to get attention.
    President: So what will the “fix” these alarmist want cost us?
    Staff: Quite a bit, Sir. Upwards of 1-2% of GDP. Depending on the speed of fossil fuel reductions.
    President: What do we use for energy?
    Staff: Unknown sir. There simply isn’t enough “clean energy” to go around.
    President: Sounds like a recipe for economic collapse. Has anyone looked at the potential consequences of these policies on the country?
    Staff: No Sir. No one cares.
    President: When there is no money, the first to go is defense spending. And when you don’t have defense….you know what happens?
    Staff: Yes Sir.
    President: Congress should be involved. And I’m not spending a penny on this until all of my concerns have been addressed.

    [But why pretend when we have the real thing……? We join Barack Obama on the way to his morning golf appointment……]

    President: Yes…what is it?
    Staff: Tom Steyer has instructed you to act on Climate Change before month’s end. He stands to lose money if there isn’t anything done soon.
    President: OK…tell him it is a done deal.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh that is so good… You should send that to Am thinker…the blog part of their site publishes shorter, “punchy” pieces like this one.


    • lysie says:

      Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Flies on the wall could hear that conversation, I’m sure. Very likely to happen or is happening.

      Very good , Rav. I second, Molly. You should send that to Am Thinker.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Delicious Day Starter. Thank you! How’s the fisherman doing?/ Did he get his Walleye/?

      I’d better back away from the keyboard…fingers and brain not in sinc….

    • lysie says:

      Greg and his cousins didn’t catch any Walleye, but they did get some bass. The only one to catch a Walleye was the wife of a cousin. Ha! Take that you fisher- men. LOL

  16. Molly Pitcher says:

    Buffett’s real rule

    It’s been awhile since I’ve expressed my complete disdain for this guy…

  17. lysie says:

    All the President’s Dudes???

    Dat totally righteous, dudette Molly. 😉

  18. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    “…The reality is that fat doesn’t make you fat or diabetic. Scientific investigations going back to the 1950s suggest that actually, carbs do.”

    Those of you with low carb diets have probably seen the recent study showing fats are not as bad as the government has been telling us. The quote is from an article on this subject but it is in the subscription based WSJ:

    The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    I was trying to post this image on my iPad last night with no luck…anyway, I’ve been looking at it for a few days now over at the Gospel Coalition site, and it gets to me every time…..

  20. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the new week’s start, Molly.

    Rav, as I posted on the other thread, I see what you did with the Derby horses names. 🙂

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      What did he do, Miss sharp Eyes? I will have to go back and check….

      Love the breakfast lysie Things to do around here, then lunch with my old singing group.

    • lysie says:

      Have a nice lunch with the group, Molly.

      With a nice day in store, I’m doing laundry. I’ve put it off far too long because of all the rain. We never get water in our basement, but this year there is a little because of the high water table.

    • The Raven says:

      Yep…I thought Molly would pick up on the “curve”

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Nope….it was an off day…didn’t have my “stuff”…..
