  1. Molly Pitcher says:

    WI passes right to work Some good news this Friday to end the week

  2. lysie says:

    Molly, EPA link:

    Greg and I are worried that they might tell us we can’t burn wood. We have a very efficient wood-stove with a catalytic convertor , but knowing the EPA that won’t be good enough.

  3. The Raven says:

    Ah…for those Classical Music lovers….

  4. The Raven says:

    In the news:

    NASDAQ’s Apple will be on the Dow Jones Average – joining other NASDAQers Microsoft and Intel

  5. The Raven says:

    OK……..I was up all night getting it just right. My proposed amendment to the United States Constitution. I wanted to get the verbiage right and the sophistication correct so the libs can’t criticize it out of hand.

    So here it is:

    In order to maintain integrity in this Republic, those who are gullible enough to vote for those lying, corrupt Democrats and their ilk, shall never again be allowed to vote. If they attempt to vote, or if they complain, they shall be hog-tied, tarred and feathered.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning everyone.

      Rav, some way Rino needs to be included.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Never again? Oooo, that is tough. Is there no remedial course of 15 years, followed by temporary voting privileges in certain cases for 20-25 years (individual cases considered), and then provisional voting for 15? Something like that….

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning and thanks for breakfast, my favorite meal of the day.

    • The Raven says:

      Lysie….the RINOs are covered with the word ilk. It also includes Supreme Court Justices’ votes.

    • lysie says:

      Ah! I should have known, Rav. Nothing gets by you. 😉

      Good morning, Molly. You are welcome. Breakfast was my mom’s favorite meal. I can remember many times it would be getting close to dinnertime and she would say “let’s have breakfast for dinner.” I never argued because I love breakfast as well.

    • Prairie says:

      Perhaps they could then be transported to some communist third world hell hole so they could experience first-hand the realities of what they believe.

    • mustknowhistory says:

      How about Steyn:

      “For what it’s worth, I prefer mansplaining to ‘Bamsplaining, where he peddles a lot of gaseous pap interrupted by cheap digs at straw men and all delivered in that set-your-watch-by-it left-right prompter-swivel. (To stick with the Mother Jones shtick, real men don’t use prompters.)”

      So glad that Steyn mentions the teleprompter thingy. Netanyahu just used his notes occasionally. I get seasick watching Obama.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      “teleprompter thingy”. ….that’s funny

      Well here Victor Davis Hanson gets in a good whack or two, also ..The audacity of weakness

    • Jemian says:

      Well it looks like Friday because it is Friday.

      And, it looks like measles on my feet and ankles. I should know what measles looks like ; I’ve had them TWICE! And, I’ve been vaccinated. So, it can’t be measles. However, there is an epidemic here.

      School this week has been miserable. The week is over. I am not going back all weekend and no one can make me. At least the power is back on and we don’t have any snow. Yet.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Another rash of some sort? Did some bug get to you? Jemian have a good restful weekend.

    • Jemian says:

      I think it just have been a bug. It doesn’t itch, but that is really the only thing which makes sense.

      I am extremely glad I have this SwiftKey on my iPad. I loathe typing with thumbs. I know I sound like a commercial, but the difference is palpable.

    • Jemian says:

      BTW, I’m going to Kuala Lumpur in late April. Any advice? Can I get anybody anything?

  6. The Raven says:

    Well, M Levin had on Carvin (plaintiff’s lawyer in King v Burwell) and was praising him. Others have been praising him for being cool under fire. I think he’s the wrong guy. He had no passion. He argued wrong. He is losing. He had the world’s easiest case and he losing.


    • edinva says:

      Rav, from all I’ve read, the tide was turning against the challenge over the past month or so. The Justices are ‘afraid’ of the consequences of overturning the law now, the social upheaval. Past Courts didn’t seem to care much about causing social upheaval. I don’t think it had to do with how the arguments went yesterday; it almost feels like a foregone conclusion, sorry to say. And Roberts got in his one CYA question that will allow him to vote, again, for O’care.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      There are supposed to be only 2 votes “In play”……Roberts and anthony Kennedy …..maybe that approach you describe is meant to appeal to them?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Goodness…are all these people cowards?? Congress? These particular judges?? You would think this fundamental transformation had been in place for decades, and it was truly unassailable.

    • The Raven says:

      Well, it is my point. There is no passion on our side……the low key arguments need to be shouting and screaming. We will let the world know about the intellectual corruption on the court and in the media. Instead, we lose and shake our head and say next time it will be different.

  7. Molly Pitcher says:

    Hillary Who?? WH searching for escape hatch….

  8. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      I pray it is not a victory for O.

    • edinva says:

      I am really really really really upset with the reports out of the SCOTUS hearing yesterday. Sounds like the justices are totally abdicating their responsibility, and worried more about ‘what t’ll look like’ or ‘what the neighbors say’ than interpreting the law as written. Sounds like they will go for the flim-flam. Sad and sorry day for America if that comes to pass.

      I read Roberts is preparing a ‘way out’ for himself to vote against the Constitution, by claiming that the next POTUS might interpret the law differently and change it to his/her liking. So, we could look forward to its changing every 4 or 8 years, depending on whom the people elect, and how that person interprets the law? This is not the formerly great U. S. of A. D’Souza really nailed it.

    • The Raven says:

      From a previous post

      The Raven says:
      Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at 6:03 am EST (Edit)
      The Dem’s are real quiet about the upcoming OCare Supreme Court decision. They were also quiet before the last time Obamacare came before the court. I’m guessing one of the lib justices gave assurances to Obama that Roberts is in their camp again. Othewise, wouldn’t they be filling the airwaves with noise?

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      In theatrical terms, Benjamin Netanyahu killed it. His performance was a virtuoso mix of skill and substance as he showered his audience with obligatory gratitude, yet offered absolute clarity on the stakes.
      … Never before has a president been so outplayed on his own turf, but never before has a president so blatantly refused to do his duty.

      -M Goodwin, Netanyahu presents strong case against Iran, NYPost

      Related link:
      NY Post Podhoretz on Bibi’s Grand Slam

      – For me, the speech was stark contrast to the inept leader we have. A reminder of what a speech should sound like.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav. Thanks for the morning quotes, links and toon.

      Netanyahu has something O could never have…concern for someone other than self.

    • The Raven says:

      Those potatoes look so good. When we lost power two weeks ago — I temporarily went off low carb as the meals were all take-out pizza, Chinese, etc. But I never went back on the low carb and have managed to go up a pound or two.

      Not as much as I thought.

    • lysie says:

      Since Greg is on a low fiber diet.we are off low carb, too. I’ve actually lost a little because I don’t eat large amounts and don’t snack in between.

    • lysie says:

      Today’s breakfast is a cup of eggs, cheese, sausage and peppers, I think.Could be potatoes in there, too. Yesterday’s brekkie had taters, too.

    • lysie says:

      It’s above freezing, here. Wow! It’s been a long time.

    • Jemian says:

      Good Thursday morning to everyone. I’m still trying to avoid politics but it is so pervasive that one can’t really ignore it altogether.

      I have no news from my kids. I am assuming things are going along well. Here, of course, we’re in our last three months of this school year. Nothing too remarkable to report here, either.

      All for now.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Jem. Hope you have a great day.

  10. Prairie says:

    And then there’s this:
    Covering Clinton, what is one thing that has surprised you about her?

    Amy Chozick: Hmm. She likes to drink. We were on the campaign trail in 2008 and the press thought she was just taking shots to pander to voters in Pennsylvania. Um, no.

    Just what we need, a slosh in the White House. This out of ABC News, no less…!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Very interesting. Don’t quite know how to address this, except to say that if this is a problem I actually feel sorry for her. For many, it’s a lifelong struggle. One of those demons that we all face, but in different forms.

      She really should stay in private life, love her grandchild, and not mess with our lives!

    • The Raven says:

      Well, that explains her falls. She has been out of the limelight recently. Maybe she has been in rehab?

    • Prairie says:

      I said much the same on the other forum Molly. Agree with you completely.

    • Prairie says:

      Nancy Pelosi said that she was almost in tears during Netanyahu’s speech.

      More like she was spitting nails.

    • Prairie says:

      Look how her hands are balled into fists…..yeesh.

    • Prairie says:

      Lastly, she is not “talking” with colleagues as the caption says…..she is turning her back on the Prime Minister and gesturing in frustration at her fellow donks, reading them the riot act, to try to get them to stop clapping.

      OK, enough pix of the San Fran witch. BTW, did you see this?


    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, he had to apologize for that one. And he did, very sincerely, too. A lesson on how to do it

    • The Raven says:

      Isn’t that the same woman who was briefed on waterboarding of high value terrorists and forgot she was in the meeting? Maybe she was watching the soaps on her phone.

  11. Molly Pitcher says:

    Hi everyone. Driving, I was able to hear excerpts of The Speech almost as they happened, I think, on Brian kilmeade’s radio show, then later on Limbaugh’s show.

    What is there left to say?

    The reference to Moses at the end moved me particularly, because never was there a man more devoted to his people’s cause but also more abused by those same people. And then I thought of his successor, Joshua, a warrior/leader like Bibi, and very strong. I always remember his “…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” and tears come to my eyes. He too was often under appreciated , like Moses, and now Bibi. But his faithfulness to God, and his devotion to his people stand thru the ages.

  12. The Raven says:

    I guess with the push for equality I should say I hate ALL Democrats – not just a few. They act like babies. Not adolescents… babies.

  13. Prairie says:

    Post 101 of this FR thread has a list (may or may not be fully complete) of the donks who disrespected Netanyahu by their absences. I took the time to look up each and every one of the Representatives. And I was somewhat surprised to see that a clear majority of them are black.

    Certainly the CBC is clearly in Stinky’s pocket, but it’s shameful to see the extent to which these black elected officials are firmly on the democrat plantation and continue to bow to both Barack and party masters. (I should’ve kept the actual numbers and figured the true percentage…..I’d estimate at least 60%.)

    Happy Belated Birthday Raven. We had a similar experience at the SS office when we were there just trying to get some basic information. LOTS of young locals in the place, hardly any retirees. Our solution: go to an office up north where they stand a better chance of knowing about how SS works for retirees and not just locals / illegals / disabilities. I think we got better information using that track.

    • lysie says:

      Netanyahu, ” When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is you enemy.” “Don’t be fooled. Iran and ISIS are competing for the islamic empire.”

      ” Iran, 1. Stop its aggression in the Middle East. 2. Stop supporting terrorism around the world. 3. Stop threatening to annihilate MY country, Israel.” Iran deal, “this is a bad deal, a very bad deal. We are better of without it. The alternative to a bad deal is a better deal.”

      Introduces Elie Wiesel who is in the House.. WOW!

      Netanyahu–“May God bless the State of Israel and may God bless The United States of America.” He means that more than O.

      Sorry there’s more, but I can’t read CC and type at same time. LOL

      Reagan like speech….truly…

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good job summarizing lysie.. A reference to Esther? Krauthammer just mentioned that…not one of the clips I heard!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hillary has disqualified herself from any consideration as President. Period. End of Story.

  14. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Thanks all for the birthday greetings and kind words.

      Yesterday, I became a ward of the state by turning 65 (Medicare, Social Security). Earlier in the year, when I went to the local SS office to do my paperwork, I was the only blue hair there. The rest were young and for the most part, latino. Probably disability ?? Why else?

      Today I have to go there again as my company gave me compensation after I left and SS wants proof that the money wasn’t coming from working wages. Otherwise, they subtract it from my SS check.

      Today is Bibi v. Bozo. Bibi wins.

      Tomorrow is King v Burwell and once again the court has no choice but to rule against it. Otherwise they legitimize Obama changing laws to suit his fancy and making Congress and the Supreme Court irrelevant. The Obamakins have no chance as the early Congressional version of Obamacare had subsidies for both State and Federal exchanges, but in order to placate Senator holdouts, they removed the federal subsidies. My only fear is Roberts – he may say, well it doesn’t have any effect on the budget since the subsidies are paid the same if it is Federal or State. No harm no foul.

      But, if they do indeed throw it back to Congress, Obama will throw a temper tantrum the likes of which we have not seen. I believe the clues are the recent suggestions that he will make bullets illegal, the secret FCC internet takeover, and the suggestion that he will increase taxes by executive orders. He probably has many more in the wings including the AM radio Fairness Doctrine and whatever equivalent he can use with the internet sites to get rid of the Free Republic and the likes.

      Or, he may simply ignore the court.

      Probably impeachment will raise its ugly head in that case.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning. Rav.

      Funny you mentioned disability. Recently I read a Charlies Daniels’ column titled “The Tipping Point”. He mentions A pandemic of people purportedly “hurt on the job”,

      Tipping Point- Charlie Daniels.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      Obama obviously believes the law is what he says it is, a delusion evidently shared by his party and the press. He behaves as if he possesses the power to unilaterally change laws and create new ones merely because the opposition party actually opposes his agenda. Adams characterized such behavior as that of “a despot, bound by no law or limitation but his own will; it is a stretch of tyranny beyond absolute monarchy.”

      D Catron, Am. Spect.

    • lysie says:

      Yes. Sad part, who will stop him? Who or what group? Do they have the nerve to stand up to him? If they do , will the media report it truthfully?

    • tillacum says:

      Good Morning Everyone. It is nice and cool in central Texas, the temperature will rise to
      the low 70s and tomorrow we’re do for another “Northern” into the 30s. But come mid week we’re supposed to warm up…………again.
      Stay warm everyone in the cool country and stay safe.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Till. Enjoy the nice weather. I’m patiently waiting for it here.

  15. tillacum says:

    Belated Birthday Wishes, Rave. I agree with Molly. Always check to see your words of wisdom.

  16. edinva says:

    Happy Birthday, Rav

    G’day, all

    Big day tomorrow. Can hardly wait to hear Bibi. Have to take car to shop tonight for work on it tomorrow, so will forego trekking to Capitol, even tho for that I’d do Metro. Going to be rainy and chilly (30s). I’m getting too old for this!

  17. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start, Molly.

  18. edinva says:

    I’d be good with keeping Bibi here, and sending O to Israel. I am still laughing at his turning down Feinstein/Durbin, not wanting to appear partisan by attending such a meeting. He is so far ahead of this pack of chumps.

    The Supremes hearing and eventual opinion should be interesting. It’ll probably be the last one released in June.

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    Oh my…first Ernie Banks, now Minnie Mimoso. Well, they are both playing baseball in heaven, and smiling still. RIP Minnie, and huge baseball thank you’s from the bottom of my heart. Old comiskey Park, + Minnie Minoso+ Luis Aparicio+ Nellie Fox= Pure Joy

  20. tillacum says:

    Where are you today? I can hardly wait to hear what he has to say. Whatever it is, ole Obama thinks it will blow him (Obama) out of the whitehouse, I’ll bet. Bibi knows something.
    If you’re traveling tomorrow, please be very careful. Stay safe.

  21. Molly Pitcher says:

    Long day of travel here, and catching up at the end of it is a very good thing.
