America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- August 25, 2014 – August 29, 2014 Remember 9/11

Hello!

The Sunday morning news shows were packed with guests talking, reporting with VERY serious concern about the ISIS threat…Some of these guests were administration officials, but we still have to wonder, acutely and with sad experience, if this group includes the person at the top of the administration. What a thought!

In national news…a return to Ferguson, where the streets have quieted down…but not the rhetoric. There are ominous signs that some people…officeholders in the state, for example… expect an indictment of officer Wilson…or else.

Such strange parallels…stop the intervention in Iraq…withdraw, or we will chop off more heads…

And indict, or expect more violence….

How is a country founded on certain legal principles, believing in certain civilizing principles supposed to react to these threats?

    WHITE HOUSE TO PUTIN: Don’t ‘Even Think About Messing Around’ With The Baltics

    Oh, puh-leeeeeeze! What’s it going to be, another “red line” like Syria? What’re you going to do, get Eric Holder to file a law suit? Write them a strongly worded letter? Hold your breath and stamp your nasty little feet??

  2. Prairie says:

    Mt. Tuvurvur volcano erupts in Papua New Guinea [pics]

    Jemian just for you if you’re around here these days. Amazing pix, worth a click.

    • Jemian says:

      Yes, I’m hanging around. I’ve seen two pics of that eruption. I’m very thankful that winds go from west to east.

      I hang around and lurk, but I’m dealing with the aftermath of dengue, specifically depression. Most days I feel worthless and that my life is pointless. I am totally dismayed by current events. I have very little uplifting to say. SO, I know those are just feelings and the fact is that God is divinely orchestrating events, both in the world and in my life. I’m of infinite value to Him and He is using me, so therefore my life is NOT pointless. However, I don’t want to bring others down into the trough where I am, so I am quiet. I try to check in every now and then.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Do check in Jemian….this may interest you.

      The mother in law of one of my cousins has just died after suffering from MS for some 20 years….confined to a wheelchair for years. But her life was a true testament to God’s goodness as those who loved her…looked after her…learned. She never lost her joy in life, was engaged, loving til the end . Her life was one long hymn sung to God in his faithfulness, and to that music she is now dancing in heaven

    • Prairie says:

      I will pray for you Jem. You’re right about your value in the sight of God…..you are deeply cherished. Sorry to read of the depression though, I’ve experienced that in my life too. I thought this was good from Charles Spurgeon about his sufferings of depression:
      “I often feel very grateful to God that I have undergone fearful depression. I know the borders of despair and the horrible brink of that gulf of darkness into which my feet have almost gone. But hundreds of times I have been able to give a helpful grip to brethren and sisters who have come into that same condition, which grip I could never have given if I had not known their despondency. So I believe that the darkest and most dreadful experience of a child of God will help him to be a fisher of men if he will but follow Christ.” (Charles Spurgeon, 2200 Quotations from the Writings of Charles Spurgeon)

      And that sounds like you, friend…..a fisher of men. As for current events, I don’t think that any of us have anything very positive to say about them. So you’re in great company there…. 🙂

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      What a blessing it is that this great preacher also produced so many written works.

    • The Raven says:

      Oh no, Jemian. I feel my life is worthless when I compare to what you’ve done. You’ve sacrificed the good life and risk strange diseases to pass the word.

      PS–Coming soon, football !!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That Nat King Cole hit….summer of ’63. We had to spend it in Conn., parked not too far from the Sound, while my father did some work in NYC. I will never forget that summer. Did it ever rain? I don’t think so…we spent time sightseeing, climbing the rocks on the nearby beach… I stayed up all night reading Gone with the Wind, and we went to see Mutiny on the Bounty with Brando…ugh…

      So thank you for the memories Raven

    • lysie says:

      Sorry. Late for the party.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Just in time for my evening snack!

  3. Prairie says:

    Rubio flips again on immigration

    Perhaps Rubio could just claim that the press misinterpreted his prior remarks. After all, it works for Obama…

    • Prairie says:

      Well, I agree. Anything that Stinky can do to subtly encourage the terrorists, even by inaction or dragging his feet, that’s what we see.

      No major plans here. Going to put Mr. Prairie to work on the BBQ grill with some steak, pork chops and chicken in no particular order. An excursion planned for tomorrow, sightseeing etc.

    • The Raven says:

      Let’s waterboard it out of him

  4. mustknowhistory says:

    Sorry to repeat myself, but David Cameron sounds good. Explaining and leading.

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  6. tillacum says:

    Iowa governor told Obama that Iowa did not want illegal children. Obama sent 124 – 13 to 19 year old to Iowa. A plane landed in Des Moines. The airport manager notified the governors office. Gov Bransted drove to the airport and chartered a United flight from Chicago. Within 8 hours, the kids were loaded on, got fed and flew to Honduras. 4 social workers from Iowa made sure the kids got to the terminal and told the Honduras officials these are your kids, they had no papers to enter Iowa and Iowa refuses to take them.
    Now I call that Governor a man with a pair and they’re made of solid brass.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I know! That “JV” team he mentioned earlier in the year. ? He was actually referring to HIS administration

    • Prairie says:

      Saw both Stinky’s remarks and Krauthammer’s analysis. Personally, I wasn’t surprised.

      Good evening everybody. We have vacated the land of deer, elk and bear and have returned to modern civilization. Had some work done on the rig today and are looking forward to what is forecast to be a beautiful Labor Day weekend weather-wise. Saw a CO pot store today with the sign outside advertising 1/8 oz for $24.00……before tax I’m sure.

    • Prairie says:

      The pot store calls itself something like the “American Wellness Center”. Throat and lung cancer, anyone?

      Speaking of throats, I see where Joan Rivers had a bad episode during an endoscopy today. Apparently she was resuscitated but was listed “critical” for a while.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good evening prairie. Travel safely.

      I agree..Dr. K really shouldn’t be surprised….shocked again, but not surprised.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Have you seen reports on how big the corn harvest is going to be this year?…record size, sounds like.

    • Prairie says:

      I have not seen or heard specifics, but we generally grow a pretty substantial corn crop.

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.


    • edinva says:

      lysie, it’ll be a while (6-12 weeks after surgery while she’s full of hardware) till they know if this worked. If not (God forbid!) she will need to have the C1 and C2 vertabrae fused surgically. I am going to try*** to send a photo by email to molly and she can share with you… ok, Molly? I don’t want to “publish’ online but want y’all to see what she’s living with. My niece says the little girl is a real trooper .. ya can’t keep her down. Thanks so much for asking, lysie.

      *** STILL learning how to use this Mac. Some of us are slower than others 😉

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      lysie, ED What a sweet little girl! You did well ED…and I will get it off to lysie shortly. All will be well with her….a little cold…goodness!

    • lysie says:

      Hi ed. Got the email from Molly with the photo of your sweet little niece. Thanks , Molly.

      Prayers continue.

    • edinva says:

      Thank you, lysie. My niece’s husband wrote a lengthy description of what all happened. Bottom line, we just all hope and pray that this last series of surgeries will fix her up. She’s just adorable, more personality/spunk that imaginable. Thank God, I think that’s what’s getting her thru this as if nothing’s happening.

      Tonight, I’m meeting my daughter and together we shall traverse the DC Metro to its outer reaches in MD to meet my sil and yet another niece, this one the gal who’s going thru the Stage 4 breast cancer that’s metastasized to her liver, but for now has it under control. Isn’t my family just a barrel of fun? Never rains but it do pour!

  8. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    Horrible time connecting to internet this a.m.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Well, that’s not the best way to start the day….the internet problem, NOT the breakfast! lol

    • lysie says:

      It seems to be fine now. I have no clue why it was acting up. TW might have had problems.

    • lysie says:

      I see your team did well last night. Yankees stunk. Idiots.

    • lysie says:

      Just as I suspected…it is a Time Warner problem.

      Time Warner Cable apparently down nationwide

    • edinva says:

      Good morning, everyone. Trying to catch up here, and with my life, generally.

      Can’t believe Labor Day is upon us. The Obamas are back from Martha’s Vineyard. Congress will be back next week. Schools have open again in DC and MD, but not VA. That’s next Tuesday. What a difference that makes re traffic, noise, just every little daily activity. So another week of relative peace and quiet.

      Last night dh and I took our (nearly) daily walk, past a local school. Lots of families, kids out walking, playing, riding bikes. After we’d passed, I asked hub: “were are we?” Seriously, in the time it took to walk by there, say 5-7 minutes, I heard not ONE word in English. Not one. At the risk of sounding xenophobic, that’s just not good. The youngsters should be speaking English, at least among themselves. What’s going to happen in all those hamlets across the fruited plain where Obama & Co have sent the recently arrived “youth” who have come to these shores “unaccompanied?”

      On the home front, both sons have returned to what is expected to be their final year(s) of undergrad. Huzzah! The son (Jack) who’s been living at home is talking with a woman who owns a home near campus about renting a room there. That will make us officially “empty nesters” at long last. Not sure how we’ll adjust, but somehow I think we’ll manage.

    • tillacum says:

      Have you been having weather problems? Happy you were able to connect. Breakfast looks good but where’s the coffee?

    • lysie says:

      Here you go , till.

    • lysie says:

      Hi, ed. Happy you checked in.

      Woohoo! Re: sons. Sarah has about 9 months and she will be done with her 2 degrees. One in Vet tech and one in Animal Care. With all the holidays mixed in it really isn’t that long.

    • edinva says:

      lysie, will Sarah be returning home after she finishes, or will she seek employment elsewhere? I would imagine with her training she will be in big demand, smart girl!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Exciting news about your children ED……now how is your little niece?? Better, I sure hope.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      2 degrees for Sarah! That is so good to read. A big celebration is in order, yes?

      🙂

  9. lysie says:

    Re: the Sharpton article….For a split teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy- tiny miniscule of a second he almost sounded like Ben Carson, Allen West, Herman Cain, J. Elder, etc.

    Re: Toby Harnden’s article. Sad that O’s people took the events at the Bundy ranch more seriously than they do terrorists.

  10. Molly Pitcher says:

    Go Home and Be Decent from Bonfire of the Vanities, 1990

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning lysie, everyone

      Just heard a fantastic clip from some movie…the final words, impassioned, effective, deeply moving: “Go home and be decent” I will have to seek out the full context, but it’s the Bennett show and the subject is Ferguson.

      Isn’t that wonderful?? For time to come, we will be able to say “Ferguson” and know what we are referring to….not wonderful, but very distressing, and it’s not over yet, is it??

  12. The Raven says:

    I was listening to a call-in radio show the other day and a woman called in and said her daughter was in a special school for high IQ kids. They had mandatory reading material over the summer and it was all left wing gobbly gook including Thomas Piketty’s “Capital.” Unbelievable

    • lysie says:

      The left is always whining about fairness…Why not have 2 sides to the economic debate? Why not have a a second book by Milton Friedman? No need to answer that one, Rav.

  13. lysie says:

    Not sure if any of you read about the 2 Amish girls who were kidnapped and returned….sad…but..here’s a follow up nice story…

    Thank you: Amish to build garage for pair who returned abducted girls

  14. The Raven says:

    It is time for the Republicans to announce what they are for. The Dems have been doing it for them and it is getting ugly. Here’s a start.

    1. A simplified tax system and elimination of the graduated tax. No more social engineering with the tax code.

    2. A return to law and order with immigration, voting, campaigning, and government agencies. Using the government to attack political opponents needs to stop and all such policies reversed. The tactics used by Obama, and Wisconsin & Texas prosecutors needs an investigation by special prosecutors.

    3. All of Obama’s illegal executive orders need to be cancelled and nullified. All of his failures need to be fixed. Starting with healthcare.

    4. Mandatory high school class on the 10 amendments and how the Democrat party subverts them for their subversive power gains. [I’m throwing this one in for effect !]

    5. A statement of a clear foreign policy and US objectives.

    Feel free to add more…..

    • lysie says:

      Good ones.

      6. Showing by examples how the liberal press lies about Conservatives by editing and falsifying what is really said and meant.

    • tillacum says:

      This is my personal opinion. IF we have a national sales tax, everyone who shops will have a little skin in the tax roles. The people on welfare, illegals, tourists, you name them, they’ll help with the tax. That will leave us normal tax paying citizens with fewer headaches from January to April 15. I think some of the IRS employees will have to be retrained into another department, as there will be fewer IRS investigators, fewer reviewers of a few million tax forms, as there will be no individual, tax forms, it will be all SALES tax. I know each state controls the taxes for themselves, and if we have a national sales tax, the sales taxes will increase. Each state will collect the taxes and send whatever amount is agreed upon, to the federal government. There will probably be fraud, and it will have to be taken care of. We can’t control the fraud now, but with a national sales tax, might cut down on the prisoners and illegals getting money they don’t deserve, plus other cheaters.

      I agree whole heartedly with #3. Cancel the laws he’s put in the government, ALL of the EOs and fumigate the whitehouse.

      Doing away with education and public employees unions

    • Jemian says:

      A major problem with the pubbies is their lack of credibility. I know I can’t agree with the Rats, but the pubbies have a history of campaigning in one direction and then capitulating completely once in office. As far as I’m concerned, they can campaign however they want now, I DO NOT BELIEVE THEM.

      With the Rats, I already know they’re commies.

    • The Raven says:

      tillacum…I think a VAT is OK if and only if there is an elimination of the income tax with an amendment. Something like the 9-9-9 will last a short time and then the 9 will be 40 then 70.

  15. The Raven says:

    What is deeply troubling is the Democrat tactic of outing Republican donors (not only the IRS – but Wisconsin, Harry Reid, etc). Once outed…the donor either gets an audit, or a negative news article, or the Koch treatment.

    So donations are down. And freedom of speech is only free if not a Conservative point of view. But worst, the Conservative “brand” is becoming severely tarnished. We’ll all NEED to hide soon.

  16. Molly Pitcher says:

    Uh oh….there’s a boater missing in L. Erie, and police are searching for a woman’s body in the National Park

    Lots of wine lost in the earthquake yesterday, sounds like

    Another weird juxtaposition comes to mind: in this country this summer, we are absorbed with a mission to douse heads in ice cold water to benefit a charity, and far away in a country we are familiar with….at the same time, we see a widespread event: chopping off heads out of hatred and intolerance. Strange times……

    • tillacum says:

      I saw a picture of a wine shop…oh me. Broken glass everywhere. However the bottom shelf had some plastic gallon water containers and they all looked safe and undamaged.
      Wouldn’t you know???

  17. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start, Molly.

  18. edinva says:

    Why do our Republican women seem to be the gutsy ones, while the men leaders are virtually worthless? Have they been that emasculated? (To ask the question is to answer it!)

    • lysie says:

      Good question, ed.

    • tillacum says:

      #1, most of our Republican women haven’t been tainted by the idea of “their” POWER, which I think many of the “old timers” have and some of the “new timers” look forward to.
      Besides women, real women, are wired differently than men. The women of pussy Pelosi’s ilk, try to be men, in their thinking and lust for power.

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    I just watched Judge Jeanine Pirro’s comments on 0bama’ s lack of leadership…she was forceful to put it mildly.
