America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 26, 2014 – May 30, 2014 Remember 9/11

Hello!

President 0 made an unannounced visit to US troops in Afghanistan today…I’m sure this visit had nothing to do with his declining polls numbers, Dems’ troubled prospects later in the year, the VA scandals and his own foreign policy debacles. It was all about Memorial Day, and his great respect for the military of which he is Commander in Chief.

No….I’m not sure of any of that at all.

However, we here at ATWR do honor deeply and most respectfully our fallen heroes. I am definitely sure of that.

    Good morning everyone.

    Hey…I have an idea!!!

    Since most of these mass murdering young males are from liberal families…..they should share their child rearing techniques so we can all avoid doing the same.

  3. Prairie says:

    I see where an errant gust of wind blew Kate Middleton’s skirt up where photographers were treated to her completely bare derriere. Two observations. Those of us who live in windier areas like TX know to either wear pants, a straighter skirt or hold onto our full skirts while walking outdoors. But perhaps the wind wasn’t fully expected and one of the princess’s aides needs to inform her of the weather forecast before she dresses for outings. Just an idea.

    Is the complete lack of lingerie….not even a G-string….no slip etc….is this a new trend? Personally, I can’t imagine not having underwear on especially under a dress. Without elaborating further, I suspect she keeps the palace dry cleaners busy….ahem…

    We will be on the road soon. Will check in as able. Take care, all.

    • lysie says:

      Nope. No surprise to me. How about MSM? Will they report as totally unexpected?

      Also this statement “Real personal consumption expenditures (consumer spending) rose 3.1% in Q1” are food / grain prices included? In this family’s case that is about all we buy. Not too many unnecessary gadgets are bought here.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wow, he sure is fired up….

      It is so pleasant outside…just gorgeous

      Forgot to provide this nature report the other day…woke up to a lovely rainbow off to the west Tues. ….nice treat to see first thing in the a.m.!

  4. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  5. The Raven says:

    Yesterday, Powerline suggested the Democrats foot the bill for slavery reparations because of their racist past. I have another suggestion to relieve their guilt some more. Since Obama is “hot” on the trail of global warming regs, he probably is looking for solutions that do little damage to Joe & Jane Everyday. But Joe and Jane must sacrifice and better their non-critical greenhouse emissions are quashed rather than their bread and butter emissions like their job, home heat and automotive use to and from work. So best to address non-essential, leisure activities:
    1) No television news or newspapers – only radio
    2) No movies on TV or theater…….
    3) No sports on TV or stadium….radio only
    4) No vacationing outside the country.
    5) Students must share housing with their professors to save heat and A/C

    If this seems overly burdensome on liberals, it is by coincidence they use so much fossil fuels in unimportant activities.

    We just returned from a visit to a downtown county office where I applied to the real estate tax division for a senior discount… We had handled that and it was good my husband went along because even tho his name is not on the deed, his I.d. Had to be checked and his signature collected.

    So, that being done we left, walking down a set of stairs a couple of hallways past some other offices, and i looked down to find a bank debit card on the floor. So there began the What to do? Discussion.

    My husband wanted to take it to the nearest lost and found. I wanted to get to a branch of the bank. But the discussion went on, and finding the location of a branch, etc, etc.

    Really it was all calm & patience , but at one point I laughed…were we on a reality show? Aging couple given a problem to solve….how would they handle it? Or maybe it was a benign episode of Survivor, taking place in a mid sized city downtown….not some strange exotic island…hmmmm.

    It wasn’t the easiest find, but we did make it to a branch to turn the card in.

  7. Bitwhacker says:

    ‘Morning everyone.

    Hey, in re this father in California saying that the ‘politicians did nothing’ to stop gun murders:

    I think it’s horrible what happened to his child, but Californa just last year proposed 18 and passed 11 new gun control laws, making California the most gun-restricted state. Before this Rodger thing, California was being touted as the model for what gun laws should look like.

    So which is it: They did nothing, or they created the model gun control program for the nation?

    The other thing is: Who bought the guns for him? He’s been in therapy since he was 8, and he has no job, so somebody had to get the guns for him…

    • edinva says:

      Bit, as I read it, he had no record so could and did get the guns and ammo himself. He had access to plenty of $$$. Remember, too, he STABBED/hammered/macheted his three male roommates. How that happened is beyond me, that there was no resistance from three victims at the same locale? Need to learn more,

      After a quite hot day here yesterday, we had evening POURING rain with lots of glorious t-storms. Cooled things off a bit but it still feels ‘clammy.’ But after the long, bitter cold winter we’ve just barely emerged from …. no complaints (yet) about the heat.

    • The Raven says:

      I have it. Most of the whackos are democrats . so — better to just put all the people who vote for them in jail. problem solved

      doggon it…my keyboard shift doesn’t work…….i have to use caps lock.

    • lysie says:

      Yes it is horrible what happened to his child, but in the same respect what have the politicians (not that I want politicians involved) done for Justina Pelletier whose parents have an unjust legal battle with Boston Children’s Hospital. Her parents have been labeled unfit? How about Rodger’s family? Does anyone dare label them?

      I’m not saying any of them should be labeled. All I’m saying is Rodgers had a “problem” for most of his life. He was the problem not the gun.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      There are definitely A LOT of angles to the WHOLE story.

  8. lysie says:

    Thanks for the links, Molly.

    Obama should take his “I heard it….” on the road with these guys.

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  10. lysie says:

    To quote Thomas Sowell from the above link. Yes!

    “Sometimes I think that this is an era when sanity has become controversial.”

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  12. Molly Pitcher says:

    You have got to be kidding: the Cubs have signed Manny Ramirez to be a player/coach on one of their farm teams…hmmm,hmmm, hmmmmm……

    • lysie says:

      Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said….”…..we do think at this stage of his life he’s a nice fit as a mentor for some of the young talented hitters we have in the organization,”

      Huh? Testing positive for performance-enhancing substances is a nice fit???

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      When he was in Cleveland everyone loved him…his great skill with a bat, but shook their heads at his immaturity , and worked with and protected him as best they could…but the big $ drew him east, and that was a disaster waiting to happen. Too, too bad.

    • edinva says:

      Interesting take, Molly. Sometimes people don’t understand how they just aren’t ready for and can’t handle living (and being a celebrity) in a huge city. The temptations are expanded geometrically.

    • lysie says:

      Perhaps, he has changed his ways. I hope for the best.

  13. edinva says:

    Blessed Memorial Day to all.

    In the process of making his appearance in Afghanistan known, the WH blew the cover of the top CIA official posted there. Sent his name and title along to all reporters, US and Intl, who forwarded on to yet others. Good show. One article I read pointed out, (WaPo, of course) that the mistake was made by the military and (after the fact) found by the WH. I’m not sure which is more disgusting, the leaking or the attempt to cast blame elsewhere. The now former C.I.A. operative is a marked man. Will those who raged over Valerie Pflume (who at the time her name/employment was publicized was NOT ‘in the field’) rage similarly against the Obama Administration for this atrocious lapse? Ha! Hey, “stuff” happens!

  14. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for pointing out my mistake Rav. I think I was sleep-posting. 😉

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      My husband has now joined the local VFW post, so yesterday he helped collect donations for the poppies, and today their post organized the ceremony we went to. Most of the vets are pretty old but then there are a few like my husband, and some from Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They can welcome a few more younger ones tho…would be nice.

    • lysie says:

      Oh! How nice, Molly. You can meet the nicest people at many vet organizations.

    • lysie says:

      We went to the cemetery and decorated Mom’s, Gram’s and Gramp’s graves…..along with weeding around the plots. Fondest memories of going with Gramp to place flags on all the vet’s graves when I was a youngster. As founder of the Fulton Veteran’s Council, Gramp made sure each Oswego County vet’s grave had a flag. He did that proudly for 40 plus years… along with organizing the Memorial Day parade.

      After that, we went to my brother’s place. It’s my sister-in-laws birthday today..as well.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh that is a day well spent…hope the weather cooperated for the outside work

  15. lysie says:

    Have a blessed Memorial day everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Nice, very nice graphic. It reminds me of story I am sure I told here some years back…..but a now deceased friend of ours told how he and his buddies gave food to starving children they had liberated in Belgium…the Netherlands…late 1944….they were not supposed to give them food from their own food lines (other arrangements had been made for the poor people) but they just couldn’t help themselves.

  16. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning everyone. We are off soon to an early a.m. Memorial Day ceremony.

  17. The Raven says:

    >> “…I’m sure this visit had nothing to do with his declining polls numbers”

    If this is the first time he’s done something like this, then you are probably right. Maybe he’s going to fess up and tell them he was personally behind the delays in their absentee ballots and the delays in the VA because he despises the military and the CIA.

    But we give the Zero too much attention today, don’t we? Hopefully his remaining time will fly by! We need to be thankful that he had a willing Congress for only the 1st two years. (by the way … the political scene in Europe is getting interesting)

    On a personal note, my father wasn’t in the military (too young for WWI and too old for WWII) but his company (which invented the circuit breaker and he was the plant manager) was approached by the navy to make torpedo “triggers.” Since it was all top secret at the time – he didn’t tell a sole and when the war was over…he still didn’t tell a sole (they never told him he could). Maybe 50 years later, long after the technology was obsolete and when he was nearing the end of life, he confided his secret to my mother.

  18. Prairie says:

    We do indeed, honor our veterans. Both of my grandfathers served in WW1, one being wounded in France and awarded a Purple Heart. My dad and my father in law both served in the Pacific in WWII. God rest all their souls.

    Speaking of WWII, we ordered up the Monument Men movie on satellite tonight. Here are the marks as I see them. First, the movie did not offend me in any way, a major accomplishment for a Hollywood production these days and I always try to recognize when that happens. Major critique: the movie is clumsy and hard to follow for the first 45 minutes to hour of the show. Thankfully, it picks up half way through but many folks might be tempted to turn the channel initially.

    Was it worth watching?……..yyyyyyyes…..some big name actors and the subject is interesting. But we’re glad we only paid the $5 to see it and not movie theater price. Meanwhile, as we contemplate the utterly failed foreign policy of Barack Obama:

    Iran’s Supreme Leader: Jihad will continue until America is no more

    ‘Karzai refused to meet Obama’

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    Everyone stay safe this holiday weekend…the kickoff to summer.
