America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- August 18, 2014 – August 22, 2014 Remember 9/11


What’s going on in Ferguson, MO tonite? I guess we will find out soon enough.

In the meantime I’ve been thinking about the charges of oppression and injustice shouted by many of the rioters. What do they mean by these words? What are they aiming at?…For awhile I was struggling with the definitions of these words as the rioters might think of them, and as I think of them.

Then I had an insight and shifted gears slightly.

And because the investigation into the death of Brown is still underway, I would like to put aside the possible misconduct or worse of the police in this particular case, and focus on the larger scene. Is it possible the protestors/rioters are identifying a problem, but misdiagnosing the cause of the problem – the oppression and injustice?

Perhaps at base the rioters should be confronting the Liberal/Left plantation of the past decades? Think of the death & decay in so many cities like Detroit …Chicago…the dependency promoted by failed poverty programs…the absence of fathers…the crime in so many neighborhoods. It IS a despairing situation.

The people in these cities may need to shake certain chains loose….turn away from certain longtime political patterns and TO themselves for true “hope and change”.

  1. lysie says:

    Leaving soon.


  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      “Do you like horror movies?” “Have you ever traveled around another country alone?” and “Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?”

      Three questions that, if answered the same by bride and groom predict, with a high percentage, a successful marriage

      ROBERT M. SAPOLSKY in todays WSJ

      I would add “Did you vote for Obama” but young ‘uns coming out of brain washing are all progressives
      PS: As you can see below, I thought yesterday was Friday – thought all of you were not in the partying mood!!!!

    • lysie says:

      I noticed. Not a problem. We’ll do it again today.

      We are going to the NYS fair later today to see John Amderson…(Swingin’) on the front porch guy.

      Did you decide on furniture? I would love a new sofa and loveseat recliner, but with 3 cats I think that is out of the question. We have 2 lovely ..barely used …sofas in the basement that were Greg’s mom’s. I don’t dare put them upstairs…

    • lysie says:

      Goodness…. Marriage based on horror movies, travel and sailboats. Top priorities….yes indeed y-doo for us.

    • The Raven says:

      Lysie…we have Idol Scott McCreery at out fair. We may head out to that. Probably gonna buy that furniture at Costco…….Probably Chinese? Although I have never, in the past, been concerned about furniture construction techniques, after seeing how our current loveseat is put together (looks like my old treehouse when I was a kid) I need to see if I can get more info on this Costco “no-name” brand

    • lysie says:

      If you go to the fair, Rav…have fun.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      You are losing track of the days…thinking every day is Friday….a sign that you are definitely in retirement mode!

      I figured that but…no big deal…I just loved the bit of artistry you posted.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yummy breakfast, and glad you are taking some extra security measures…we are more sensitive to that issue too the past few years.

    • mustknowhistory says:

      I need about 6 cans of DC to get started these days…

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, MKH.

      I need about 6 cans of DC to get started these days…

      I understand. Mornings are getting darker it seems….in more ways than one. BUT, we must continue to fight the “good” fight. Plus, my animals won’t let me mope around. 😉

    • tillacum says:

      Good morning Everyone. Thank you for breakfast, lysie.
      I CANNOT believe that holder is going to track down the killer of Mr. Foley. When the killer is found will he be read his Miranda rights when/if he’s found? What is it with this group of nobma sycophants WE’RE IN A WAR ! for heaven’s sake !!

    • The Raven says:

      tillacum…Holder got Foley mixed up with the Ferguson police officer

  3. The Raven says:

    T G I F

    Well, it’s a little late in the day, so how about some lovely, soft, Art Pepper?

    The better half and I went to local furniture stores to replace our worn out living room pieces and on the way, stopped at that left-wing Costco’s. They had a leather sofa and love seat with motorized recliners for about $1800 for both. We then went onto La-z-Boys and a similar set was running around $4000 on sale. Hmmmm….which way should I go?

  4. Prairie says:

    Well, Mr. Anderson of The New Yorker and author of the> link up-thread…..(assuming my best Sean Connery voice): Now WHAT are you prepared to DO about it?!!

    It’s all well and good to lament the blood-thirsty fanatics who killed Foley. But when the barbarians are at the gate….which they are….are you satisfied to simply lament on your keyboard or will you realize that the 2nd Amendment, a strong American military, decisive action and a rejection of “tolerance” have sound basis in dealing with this murderous plague? As Molly indicated, it’s TBD.

  5. The Raven says:

    This was linked on Powerline a day or so again and is worth the read.

    The Meltdown – Bret Stephens

  6. lysie says:

    Thanks for all your links, Molly.

    If I was as incompetent as O…as a mother I’d would be in jail for child abuse.

    If I was as incompetent as O as a telephone operator the late 60s…my headphones would have been yanked off my head.

    If I was as incompetent as O… as a person…I would go to seek help.

    Can any of you add to this “If I was as incompetent as O” list?


  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Okay, this is a help yourself breakfast. 😉

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wow! Thank you, and good morning everyone.

      prairie…Great links from last night. Thanks!..

      ..we had some more heavy rain yesterday p.m…..

      ….Swish is out for the rest of the season, but expected to be ready to go next spring on time.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly. Aww! Sorry to hear about Swish.

      T-storms today, here, too. The boys are inside.

      Our security cameras arrive today. Plus, we bought another driveway alarm.

    • The Raven says:

      Lysie – Don’t forget the equalizer

    • tillacum says:

      I agree with Molly, WOW. OH, the bisquits, hotcakes that sweet bun look sooo tempting.
      NOPE, gunna stick to my eggs and sizzlers.
      Good Morning Everyone. Tis another “warm” day in central Texas.

    • lysie says:

      Thanks, Rav.. A few years back we had a rabid fox and other rabid animals in our yard. They were equalized so that they would not infect other animals.

    • lysie says:

      Yes. I did… because I try to be aware, BUT because of MSM no one else will.

      Thank you for providing that link, Prairie. I’m emailing others.

      On a much happier note…we will be going to the NYS Fair tomorrow to a John Anderson concert. is at a “Midway” stage…we all will be “Swangin” 😉

    • Prairie says:

      Have a great time sounds like fun!

    • tillacum says:

      With the news release from the half Whitehouse, about the Special Ops troops not finding Mr. Foley, I’ve come to the conclusion that #1, the half Whitehouse should not have made that news release, #2, the half Whitehouse is trying to make Special Ops troops look incompetent, as they have been trying with the Seals. The news media is helping.

  8. Prairie says:

    Obama blasts terrorists, returns to golf

    Stinky couldn’t wait to get back to the tee box and yuck it up with his buds. Look at that grin.

  9. tillacum says:

    nobama told the family he’d pray for them? On his prayer rug?

  10. tillacum says:

    I watched the video of the isis beheading. The reporter never moved or blinked during the commentators speech. Then he pulled the reporters head back and began the process. The reporter didn’t struggle, just allowed himself to be done in. It’s almost as if he had been drugged.
    Then the next scene, the body was laying on it’s front with it’s head on it’s back.

    • Prairie says:

      Undoubtedly he was drugged big time. Animals.

      I understand Mr. Obama told the family he would pray for them. I wondered out loud just who he would be praying to…..

  11. lysie says:

    You are welcome, till..

    So, what would you all like me to serve for breakfast tomorrow? Just let me know when you are ON carbs and you’ll be eating waffles until you pop. LOL

    • tillacum says:

      A wonderful egg something, served with little sizzlers. Today was shaved ham with eggs flavored with extra small dice onions, shaved tiny diced celery, and home grown shaved sweet red peppers all held together with a bit of full cream. Not bad. I did add tabasco sauce for a bit of a kick.

    • Jemian says:

      I love the low carb brekkies. I’m avoiding current events. It is a horror show everywhere you turn.

      School has started. I’m teaching only four periods, but I’m wiped out by the end. Dengue effects. I’m not sick. Just tired.

  12. lysie says:

    Molly, I forgot to comment about the WP dashboard…editing changes. Took me a moment to figure some of it out. I’m not sure if I understand all the changes….yet.

  13. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  14. lysie says:

    D@MN!!! (sorry)

    A County Sheriff came to our house to question about a break-in at our neighbors. Tools and several other items were taken from a LOCKED…shed. He wanted to know if we saw or heard anything.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh dear, that is a shame. Take care, and be watchful.

      Good, good on the medical front!

    • The Raven says:

      I lost a lot of stuff from a shed. And from inside the house. I suspected relatives but can’t prove anything. After that, I installed security cameras

    • lysie says:

      We have a few cameras and we just bought another system. Plus, we have driveway alarms, a five foot fenced in backyard. (front will be soon), a German Shepherd and other security items. (ahem) Still, I feel very uncomfortable.

      Someone broke into our vehicles by smashing the vehicle’s windows…about 5 years ago. Sarah had her wallet in a locked glove compartment…that was found 20 miles from us in Syracuse. Greg had a computer in his State truck. That was taken as well. We saw the foot prints in the snow.

      I guess living 200 feet from the road doesn’t matter.

    • The Raven says:

      U should also have a few weapons……..

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      A solemn evening…Reading about the likely execution of American journalist at the hands of ISIS. …..prayers for his family and friends. Having escaped death earlier, this time it wasn’t to be.

  15. lysie says:

    PTL. Test came back negative.

    After what mom went through….Greg worries a bit….me, too.

  16. The Raven says:

    The oldest granddaughter started first grade and “common core” (the program to take the quality of the teacher out of the equation and give the same education to everyone across the nation…..stamping out like toaster ovens, an army of Democrat robots). Her mom is hating it.

  17. tillacum says:

    Good luck with the appointment today, lysie. I do the same thing when we have an early whatever. Just finished reading “When All Hell Broke Loose”. What a bunch of ???. Seems some of those riot for any reason and there’s always a pansy reporter ready to blame the police.

  18. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning!

      A couple of darn nightmares last night….but the day now beckons, so it’s time to get up and moving I guess

    • lysie says:

      Hi, Molly. No nightmares for me, but I was up early for fear of missing a yearly checkup at 8:30. I think by waking up at 4:00am it gave me plenty of time to get ready and be on time. Only 15 minutes away…lol

      Back later.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh those early a.m. appts.! What you did…that’s exactly what happens to me…

      Good luck, hope it all goes well, and enjoy the rest of your day, for sure. HA!

    • The Raven says:

      Wow…this Perry indictment is an unbelievable abuse of power. I am really upset. Need to work in the yard or something

    • tillacum says:

      Thank you lysie. With a cuppa, we’re ready for the day.
      Good Morning Everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Considering Travis county’s history, I am surprised this lawsuit took so long to be jigged up. The dastardly Dems are getting a little slow on the draw it seems to me.

  19. The Raven says:

    I’m sitting here wondering what the Dems have up their sleeve. It seems improbable they will go into the fall elections without a Hail Mary of some sort. Will it be immigration or perhaps keeping Ferguson growing and spreading – and blaming everything on Republicans? A war? Some diversion for sure.

    • lysie says:

      How about all of the above.

    • The Raven says:

      But, as always, putting the Progressive movement, the Democrat party and Obama above the people and the country. Far above. Speaking of which, how much money does it cost to have fake charges against Republicans? Grand Juries, lawyers, trials, staff, judges. It ain’t cheap. The Republicans win but go broke defending themselves. The public picks up the cost of the losing Democrat crusades. It must be a crime to take out a political enemy this way (abuse of power, misuse of funds, etc). If not, we need to make it one.

    • tillacum says:

      I’ve been thinking along those lines too, Rave. Nobama’s “civilian military force” is something to think about. I’ve read some have graduated from their training, complete with uniform.

  20. lysie says:

    Good morning, mkh.

    That can’t happen. Al would not approve.

    Rav, if that’s the case…it’s all because of our horse Bentley…I can hear his flatulence when he’s 100 feet away.

    I read that a lib reporter is trying to say that the Bundy protestors were treated special because of their color.

    • The Raven says:

      Yes….Lysie, maybe we can figure a way for Bentley and the world’s cows and horses to let loose at the same time at some apropos time (Hillary’s inauguration?).

  21. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh those layers of scrumptiousness in that egg dish!

      Good morning!

      Long live Heartland!

    • tillacum says:

      Is that cream cheese between the crepe layers. Looks interesting. hmmm
      Good Morning everyone. Seems the democrats are busy in Ferguson and in Texas, trying to jail our governor. Ferguson is interesting, right now, who is in charge of the riots? Could it be the “civilian military force” put together by nobama? Why did the Fergusonians suddenly begin using Molotov cocktails? Interesting.

  22. mustknowhistory says:

    Uh oh. Electrical grid may not be able to provide enough energy for a bad winter:

    Tough news for those of us in northern climates. Also, the governor of Missouri has now called out the national guard. This comes twelve hours after he deplored the overly militaristic response of the Ferguson police department.

  23. The Raven says:

    One of the worst aspects of the progressives is they are never short of irritations. Now that they have attacked coal, the next item on the greenhouse gas list is cow farts. From todays WSJ OpEd page:

    Angela Tagtow, a self-described “environmental nutritionist” formerly with the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, was recently tapped to head the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s effort to revise federal dietary guidelines.

    Say goodbye to meat.

    Do the Americans want this? There is a nearby article with poll results – rating progressives (who often hide their culpability when programs tank including the mortgage crisis).

    A full 76% of American adults say they aren’t confident that “life for our children’s generation will be better than it has been for us,” up from 60% in 2007, before the financial crisis and the Obama presidency. And, reports the Journal, “Some 71% of adults think the country is on the wrong track, a leap of 8 points from a June survey, and 60% believe the U.S. is in a state of decline.”

    But anyway, I now know the title of my book. “Cow Farts”

  24. lysie says:

    I would like to address your opening , but for tonight on a more pleasant note…after several years of stubborn Greg is watching Heartland. He loves it. In fact, when I tried to say something to him he said..shush I want to hear this part. LOL

    He’s on season 2. I think I will hear many more..shushes.;-) MEN!!! Ha!
