America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- December 1, 2014 – December 5, 2014 Remember 9/11

Hello!

First the non-Ferguson news…Some woman got a pig on a US Airways flight this weekend. Huh?? A pig among the flight attendants and passengers??? Eventually the woman, and her pig were escorted off the plane.

Now to Ferguson, where it gets dicier and dicier.

0 will hold a Cabinet meeting tomorrow on the subject. This can’t produce anything good. When was the last time you heard about him meeting with his Cabinet….Calling a special meeting??

Louis Farrakhan keeps calling for violence across the country; a civilian group organized to provide some protection for businesses and residents, and was asked by the local police to stand down; now those civilian protectors are angry; many on social media sites scream for cop killing; and Officer Wilson has resigned, his continued presence on the force considered to dangerous to the others.

But the Christmas Season is here, so let’s rejoice and celebrate that.

The Bitter End Mary Landrieu…being familiar with the territory, I enjoyed all the local color, not to mention the end of her Senate career…

    Till, I read your shopping post. I have an idea. Someday, if we visit , we will let the boys go shopping..together. 😉

    Morning quotes on a Democrat in the news (Mary Landrieu)

    With the odds stacked heavily against her, Landrieu soldiers on virtually alone—this year’s political equivalent of those holdout Japanese infantrymen who were discovered waging war on remote Pacific islands decades after World War II had ended
    -Washington Post’s Sean Sullivan and Karen Tumulty

    To say that Democrats have thrown in the towel would be an understatement. The Iraqi Army fled Mosul slower than Democrats abandoned Mary Landrieu in the wake of the November thumping in Senate races across the country
    – ABC’s Jeff Zeleny

    Hat tip- Taranto’s WSJ column today

  3. The Raven says:

    Democrats in the news – as suspected, it was a hoax.

    The fraternity — which has been vilified, had its house vandalized and ultimately suspended all of its activities on campus after the Rolling Stone article — said in its statement Friday that it had immediate concerns about the story and has been working to figure out what happened.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    OK! Just got back from the store….where I remembered all, ALL, 10 items on the list, even tho I FORGOT the list at home….

    • lysie says:

      Ha! Good for you…I think. 😉

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We have to claim those victories…small as they may be!

    • edinva says:

      Molly, that is MAJOR! I can go into the store for three items and forget two!

      OK, so is anyone surprised about the Rolling Stone retraction/apology for its UVA story? My first reaction was “TWO WORDS: Crystal Magnum.” Forget about the bad journalism set to fit an agenda, this harms further every woman, every student who will be raped in the future. It will be more difficult to come forward, because, as if things aren’t bad enough, there will be suspicion that the story is fabricated. Oh, and let’s not forget the damage to UVA, its students, its Greeks. Interesting timing, too … just when h.s. seniors are getting their applications out and/or winnowing down the list. This is somewhat personal in that about 1/4 of my own daughter’s h.s. class went on to UVA. Not one of them can I conceive of ever doing anything violent, much less sexual assault. Not that it couldn’t happen on this or any other campus.

    • lysie says:

      Yes. I agree. I’ve left many lists home.

      If I’m alone in the store without a list ,usually, I can remember everything. If Greg is with me….another story. I swear he’s like a toddler in the grocery store. In fact, one time I mentioned that to a cashier. She said she could relate and laughed. We both had a good chuckle.

    • tillacum says:

      I’m like lysie. If I’m alone I buy only what is needed, if hubby is with me, he takes a cart, goes off, happy as a clam at high tide. Shops, finds me, empties his cart into mine, then sails off again for another adventure down an aisle. He says he hates shopping….

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  6. The Raven says:

    WARNING!! Obama is slipping in an internet tax – by making the internet a utility like telephones….and thus susceptible to the gazillion federal, state, and local taxes you see on your phone bill. I suppose, also without Congress.

  7. The Raven says:

    If it isn’t Hillary…then it is Liz I’d rather have Hillary than Liz….4 sure

  8. The Raven says:

    I was just thinking….suppose we get a bunch of bumper stickers with something real nasty about liberals……like F&^%%$& PROGRESSIVES …and then put it on some libs cars so that other liberals will key scratch it.

    HAH !!!

  9. Prairie says:

    Just as a point of observation, I’d like to point out that Eric Garner was obviously breathing during the eleven times he claimed that he couldn’t. Since he is engaged in speech eleven times, there is obviously respiration occurring. It could well be that the cop should’ve released or loosened his hold on Garner, but since Garner was speaking clearly and repeatedly, he may have thought that Garner was just trying to pull a fast one.

    The Forgotten Word

    Dec 1 | Posted by: Charlie Daniels | Tags: Ferguson, Race relations

    I sometimes wonder what would have happened had Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived and retained the helm of the civil rights movement, this compassionate man who advocated a non-violent approach to civil disobedience and challenged all people, by example, to grab their bootstraps and pull, to get an education and accept responsibility for their own lives…..

    God help us.

    What do you think?

    Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

    God Bless America

    Good morning All. The weather in central Texas is perfect. Cooooool.
    I just finished reading about Obama calling a meeting with al Sharpton. Sharpton will be on a 40 city speaking tour. I wonder what words of wisdom he will be sharing with the audience. I have been surprised with FOX, they’ve been replaying the scene of the police taking down Garner and him telling he couldn’t breathe.

  12. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

      ARGH

      My computer (an iMac) failed a couple of weeks ago. I took it to Apple and they thought it was the new operating system and reinstalled it – but in doing so had to wipe out my hard drive. When I got it home, I restored everything from my backup. I have an MS Windows running on this machine and for some reason….it didn’t get saved in the backup. The Windows file is only one file and is huge. Then I started getting the same problem again. So — this time, I ordered a new computer and later took the old one back to Apple. A little later they called and said it was my video board and for some reason was subject to a recall and will be repaired for free.
      If they had had it right the first time, I would not have lost my Windows (and checking account files from 2007 – present)
      But, anyway…here I am on the new computer. Do I look any different? [showing profile]

    • lysie says:

      Frustrating, Rav.

      And yes. You do look different. You look more handsome. I never thought that could happen, but it is what it is. 🙂

      How are you and the wife feeling? Better, I hope.

    • The Raven says:

      No….still have my cold, although it is less intense. The better half never got it.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh my you have had enough computer problems to last awhile. Raven

      This latest thing in NYC….AAAGH. What did that Grand Jury hear/see that led them to this decision? It has a lot of people puzzled on both sides. Not sure what to think myself.

      I do know, however, that di Blasio’s comments were asinine, uncalled for, disgusting and demagogic. IE…I did not like them.

    • lysie says:

      Well, then, get well soon. Glad to hear it’s not as severe.

    • lysie says:

      If it’s the law enforcement being questioned by diBlasio, Sharpton and others why are the masses targeting innocent people? Why not loot police departments? Wanna know why? Because there’s no valuables in it. Just my opinion.

    • tillacum says:

      Looks good lysie. Will be fixing something similar.

  13. Prairie says:

    Grand Jury Declines to Indict NYPD Officer in Eric Garner Chokehold Death: Sources

    The victim had over 30 criminal arrests which may not be germane to this death by a cop, but I’m betting the cops knew his record. Still, this will likely fan the Ferguson flames. Whole danged country may be torched before this is all over.

    Good afternoon all. Nice party being arranged for tonight, I’m taking queso dip and looking forward to it.

    • Prairie says:

      This may simply be a sign that people are sick to death of the level of crime from the black “community”. Or a half-hearted attempt by the prosecutor?

    • edinva says:

      Normally, I’d prefer not to opine on the NYPD** non-indictment, since I didn’t sit on the Grand Jury and see all the evidence. There’s an argument being made that “all” Garner did was sell cigarettes, without the outrageous NYC tax ($12/pack in NYC!). Did anyone ask where/how he got the cigarettes, and what racket it is supporting? Most of the truckloads of cigarettes driven illegally to NY from VA/NC are to profit drug dealers, the Mob and/or some terrorist organization. These are not a “Mom and Pop” organizations. That is not a victimless crime. Garner was a very low level minnow on an atrocious food chain, but he was, in fact, a willing participant in it.

    • lysie says:

      I wish we could hear more about the moral and ethical blacks who are tired of the “other black community” who are not helping the cause. I’ve heard a few speak out, but there needs to be much more.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Well, I heard one guy on Bennett’s show yesterday…. He said he had truly suffered at the hands of police in the ’60s. But that was then, and now is now, and he has seen a terrible downhill slide of his people, a lot of it because of liberal policies. He’s a happy capitalist now and tired of pulling the weight of non productive people …dangerous people….whatever their race.

    • Prairie says:

      Excellent points ED.

      A great time was had by all at the party. Wonderful food. Don’t be shocked but I ate too much……!

    • Prairie says:

      Molly and Lysie, I do think that plenty of blacks are appalled at what is going on within their communities and their race. Too bad the collective lot of them is so firmly on the democrat plantation and always will be. Cause–effect, you know….

  14. lysie says:

    Cuteness once again.

  15. Molly Pitcher says:

    Safari Park Rules Am. Thinker….unfortunately true. When I think of the times…not so far in the past when I drove/walked around on my own in places like DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, I just shake my head……scary to think of it now

  16. lysie says:

    Thanks, Molly, for the Sowell link. Once again he explains it with clear reasoning.

    Feel better , Rav.

  17. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      I intended to get back yesterday, however, the tire change took longer than planned….then,,,,since the sun was shining and the temperature was decent, Greg wanted to go to the camp to fish. He did and it started snowing after a couple of hours.

      After arriving home my aunt called. Love her..dearly..but…. even she will tell you…..she loves….. to talk and talk and talk. 😉

      Then watched SU basketball who , unfortunately , lost to Michigan. Twice in the last minute that had a chance to win and twice SU players couldn’t hold on to the ball

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning! Fighting the chills this a.m….I think that is all….just cold.

      Did I ever tell you I have a “Happy” light now? Nothing fancy…just a special bulb in a simple fixture…something handmade by my husband’s brother eons ago. But anyway, it is very nice to have in the winter as it is placed above the desktop here. .

    • lysie says:

      How nice, Molly. Lately it seems like we need “happy” lights all year round.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      HA! “Happy” something….true. You know what I mean by a happy light – that’s what son calls it….a full spectrum light to mimic the sun’s light

    • lysie says:

      LOL. I really didn’t know what you meant, but anything relating to happy….I like. 🙂 Happy, happy , joy, joy.

  18. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    I see that 0 was doing his best “I’m stll relevant” routine today with a bit of his old community organizer role thrown in. Ugh.

  20. lysie says:

    NFL player Benjamin Watson’s Ferguson post on Facebook goes viral

    “At some point while I was playing or preparing to play Monday Night Football, the news broke about the Ferguson Decision. After trying to figure out how I felt, I decided to write it down. Here are my thoughts……..

    More at link above. What he posted is worth the read and thought provoking. I hope many in “hate mode” read it.

  21. lysie says:

    Good Monday morning everyone. Thanks for the start, Molly.

  22. edinva says:

    did you see the #Ferguson protesters closed I-395 a/k/a DC’s Southeast/Southwest Freeway, at the Capitol exit? har har dee har har. I’d imagine about 90% of the folks inconvenienced were black. Just what are these people trying to accomplish? I imagine they’re turning off more people than they’re attracting to their cause. Not for lack of trying ,but at least there was no rioting in DC. They’ve barely recovered from the 60’s riots. Don’t know they could go thru all that again.

    • The Raven says:

      So, why is Jim Webb running? He has less than a zero percent chance of winning so there must be a financial angle. Or maybe he is to provide an alternative to lefty Warren so Hillary looks good??
