America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 25, 2015 – May 29, 2015 Remember 9/11


It is certainly good and reassuring to read and hear about all the Memorial Day ceremonies across the country. We have not forgotten!

Some in authority it seems would have us forget. They do not hold our country in the kind of esteem and honor that we are used to in our elected leaders. And in various ways…speeches, actions, or non-actions, they signal this disregard, and try to influence us in the same way.

But it will not stand. It will not stand.

  1. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We are up and going!

      Thanks lysie ….Friday! wow…

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      ED….that Hastert thing is very strange indeed. What ever happened was a long time ago it appears….he was either protecting himself or someone close to him? Blackmail? And the JDept caught him for not reporting the withdrawals of his own money? C’mon! There are several problems in this whole affair.

    • edinva says:

      Molly, IF, and it’s a big IF, the NBC story about his making blackmail payts to a former student are true, it’s a very nasty story (and quite disappointing).

    • The Raven says:

      That is really strange……he was withdrawing his own money. And the whole purpose was to pay blackmail so he had to lie as to where it was going. Why don’t the fed’s use that energy on the Clinton”s? It’s just reserved for ‘Pubs?

      Speaking of the ‘Pubs, Our local talk radio booted Mark Levin to 9PM and put Savage in his spot. Last night Savage was promoting that the ‘Pubs develop a propaganda strategy to compete with the Dems. Hmmmm…..there’s no way. Dems are too good at it.. Although, after hearing my lib colleagues at work trash Bush endlessly, I made a promise to myself to never again say anything remotely favorable about a Dem. unless they promoted dissolving the Democrat Party

    • mustknowhistory says:

      Yes. The hastert story is very strange. Apparently, just moving cash around in increments over $10,000 is subject to government scrutiny. Was this part of Dodd-Frank? There have been news stories lately about small business owners getting caught in this trap, just trying to reform their legitimate business transactions.

    • mustknowhistory says:

      Here is the wikipedia entry on Currency Transaction Reports:

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, some small businesses affected too. Does the apparatus have something to do with fighting the drug war and the money involved with all that? It’s a stretch by the authorities to go after these other people, even Hastert whatever he was up to….

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That’s helpful, thanks!…surely there must be something there to snag Bill and Hill….sheesh I forgot..they are above the law….

    • lysie says:

      Well, I think MSNBC should offer Hastert a TV show.

    • The Raven says:

      The FBI computer, no doubt, has a logical if statement to filter the transactions. If ( money transfers>100,000 AND Person=Republican OR Person = Menendez ) then …… indict ELSE MSNBC show

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ha! No doubt

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hey….I want a national crawfish day!!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ha…a shockeroo, right?!?

      It kills me…every time there is a list of circumstances announced to accompany this kind of news….you know….the very hot weather…..the very cold weather…..all the snow in the n.e……the drought in the west…whatever…I am waiting, waiting for the time when the report adds President 0 to round out the list of calamities…..

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Is that our bedtime snack?? Ok!

    • edinva says:

      Molly, it’s tomorrow’s breakfast! Lysie’s just getting ahead of herself here.

      Jem, my teachers grades 1-12 always wore the same thing every day of the school year. Of course, it was 50’s/60’s RC schools, back when the sisters actually wore habits. I think they should bring them back, frankly. In retrospect, they were kinda cool, at least some of them.

      Was this a slow week in politics, or am I that out of it? THO, I did see Denny Hastert was indicted today. Not good. Maybe the MSM will be too obsessed with the FIFA investigation to bother with Republicans for a while.

      How are our friends in TX faring thru all this flooding. Horrible. I’d far rather see FEMA $$ going there than to Baltimore where they’d repair stuff just in time to have the mobs burn ’em down again.

  2. Molly Pitcher says:

    I liked this story….a Bedouin tribe’s pride in Israel.

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning lysie We finally had some good rain last night. No need to water today…..

    • lysie says:

      Yes. We had some , too. Much needed , also.

    • Jemian says:

      Good morning. Grades are in. Inventory mostly done. Won’t be done at least until Tuesday. This week was a riot! No real lesson plans but mostly tying up lose ends. At last I can tell of a joke I was running on my students. I posted this on Facebook:

      “Purple. Dark purple. NOT maroon, but purple.

      “I have three shirts the exact shade of purple.

      “Back in early March, I got the idea to wear all the shirts on successive days and just see if anyone would comment. NO ONE did. So, the next week, after having laundered them, I did it again. Still, no comments. Then, I decided to wear the shirts all week (laundry in the meantime) and see what happens. No comments. I have worn those three shirts every single day since the last week in March. NOT ONE OF MY STUDENTS COMMENTED AT ALL! School is out. Game over. I won.”

      Two of my students have seen my post. One couldn’t believe he didn’t notice. Another said she noticed but was afraid to comment because I might have gotten mad. “Yeah, right, Clementine. Sure, you noticed. I believe you.” /s

    • lysie says:

      I noticed. LOL

      Good prank, Jem.

    • The Raven says:

      In this high tech world, if you ever wondered way back when what the first generation of auto GPS navigation system were like, you are in luck, because they still use them in todays Honda and Acura cars. I spelled out a store name and it gives me every store in the United States and Canada — regardless of distance.

      No wonder Apple is looking at this as a market.

    • The Raven says:

      In high school, we had a student teacher in German. She wore the same blue dress every day of the year. We figured she didn’t have enough money to buy clothes. We called her the Blau Frau. (What rhymes with purple?)

    • lysie says:

      (What rhymes with purple?)

      Burple, murple, durple, and kerfurple, silly. 🙂 Ha!

    • The Raven says:

      The left is after Christians……

      -Rubio and Rush

      Morning quiz:
      Who is this?

      answer here

    • lysie says:

      We must not allow them. Sure would be nice if the press agreed with us instead of instigating,

    • lysie says:

      Never would have guessed that, Rav.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Who is it? Can’t tell from going to the Drudge page…

    • The Raven says:

      Molly….it seems Dennis Hastert took over the Drudge site…here is where it was

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      For goodness sake! Well I couldn’t agree more with her warning.

  4. The Raven says:

    Democrats in the news:

    Attack of the PeddaPub – Hah

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We were just talking about this at supper! Have you ever seen one?

      We have out in Portland. I can’t’ see getting so upset by it, unless the drinking is way out of line. But what we saw was just people having a good time in the early evening hours..a moving bar of happy people consuming adult beverages.

    • The Raven says:

      Yes…saw a couple of those peddle pubs in Savannah…..took some pics of them……

  5. lysie says:


    It was a faulty wire on the pump not the pump itself. We have water.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ha…very good….we have gotten some fix it jobs done this a.m. also . Let’s just relax the rest of the day!

    • lysie says:

      Relax, Molly? You bet I’m going to.

      I’m a little sore. While Greg was lifting the pump out of the casing I had to make sure the flexible pipe didn’t kink or break. Sheesh… that pipe must have been 70 feet long and a tad heavy. Trust me. It IS well worth a little soreness considering the savings.

      Went to the store earlier and bought some items for special dinner. Nothing too overly fancy, though.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh take care … left hand (arthritis) has been hurting off and on….am so glad it is not my right hand, tho…

      Am cooking pork tenderloin for supper….asparagus and salad…still more outside work to do tho

    • lysie says:

      Oh no. Sorry about your hand, Molly.

      We are having pork , too. Greg is bbqing it as I type.

    • The Raven says:

      Maybe it is just me, but I thought Fiorina’s answer was horrible — titles, political class, etc……

    • lysie says:

      I understand her point. For example the title husband, wife , father and mother mean little if those people don’t act and do as they should. However, like you I think she could have worded it differently and perhaps shortened her comments and made them more precise.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Fiorina is usually better and more articulate than that.

  6. lysie says:

    Thanks for the links Molly. Too far left or too far CRAZY? One and the same?

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  8. The Raven says:

    Democrats in the News:

    Bernie Sanders wife. Hah!! Figures

    Democrats in the News 2

    Warren Wilhelm?

    Bill de Blasio’s real name according to Powerline

  9. The Raven says:

    This upcoming Supreme Court case is one to watch. With all the illegal voters, they are essentially wielding power in getting counted for congressional districts. I wonder what the electoral college distribution would look like if only registered citizens were counted.

    And the appeals court upheld the hold on Obama’s illegal immigration power grab

  10. The Raven says:

    IRS again….I bet it is all Republican candidates for office.

    • lysie says:

      Jeepers. I’d like an enclosed deck…paved 300 foot driveway…a small second story room (we have a ranch) , cherry hardwood floors throughout the house…an addition to the garage..Let me think…I may have more “needs”. Guess what? It won’t happen because it doesn’t make sense to do ALL that. Plus can’t afford. What part of can’t afford don’t these jerks get???

  11. lysie says:

    Thanks for the links , Molly.

    Liberals = People are not responsible for self or family. Others are.
    Conservatives = Take care of self and family so other don’t have to, yet help others when possible.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Very good!

      till Safe travels and have fun!

      We are having some work done around the foundation today…patching and repairing, plus a crack in the front walk. Later an AT and T guy is coming to do another repair on the line.

  12. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      The BBQ was really, really, really good [but a lot of work in prepping]. Better than any restaurant. And we had absolutely perfect weather for days on end now. I blame global warming, Bush, and the Koch Brothers.

    • The Raven says:

      Democrats in the news #1

      Pimlico may get out of Dodge, Democrat paradise, Baltimore because of taxes.


      PS…Lysie..did you know the Yankees started in Baltimore? Yep….they were originally Orioles. The same Yankees who now lost 10 of the last twelve games.

      Dems in the news #2

      Bus powered by poop

    • tillacum says:

      Good Morning everyone. Leaving for CA this a.m. NO TV, no phones. “See” you when
      we get back.

    • lysie says:

      What the heck happened to the Yankees? Few hits , poor pitching. Half game out now.

      Happy to hear everything went well at RAV’S HOUSE OF GOOD EATS.

      You are welcome, Molly.

      Have a good time , till. We’ll miss you.

  13. The Raven says:

    Morning quote

    “…we have a federal government that’s too big to fail.”

    – Scott Walker

  14. Molly Pitcher says:

    Hi everyone. We had a fine service this morning…veterans, safety personnel, Boy Scouts and families….good sized crowd in the community where my husband’s VFW post is based.

    Oh the horrible news out of Texas and OK……just heartbreaking ,and now the weather system is moving east into LA.

  15. lysie says:

    From ed’s videos of yesterday’s Rolling Thunder demonstration/parade. Thanks so much , ed.

  16. tillacum says:

    Were you a flight attendant or ? d

  17. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you!

    • The Raven says:

      I don’t know why I do this. I followed a link and it was a New York Times article. I should have stopped there but I started reading. Then I came to this and the noises coming out of me startled the dog.

      Ms. Fiorina, whose net worth is between $30 million and $119 million, has generated headlines and steady crowds of conservative voters.

      [emphasis mine]
      I wonder if we could find that qualifier after Hillary’s name in the NYTimes. And these are the same people who didn’t think Rubio had enough money

      then later…same thing

      Whether Ms. Fiorina, the only woman in the Republican race, can build from her status as a crowd-pleasing speaker…..

      How about…..”Ms Clinton, whose net worth is well hidden but upwards of a billion, is the only woman in the Democrat race.” ?? Not gonna happen.


    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Really…that is revolting….

  18. The Raven says:

    Very nice words, Molly.

    • tillacum says:

      You’re right Molly, this administration has been trying for 6 plus years to turn America
      into the 3rd world country his father lived in. He WON’T turn us. We have strong
      citizens who love America and her Idea. Our elected seems to have turned chicken when dealing with this group in OUR Whitehouse. He will soon be gone, but WE the People will still be here, we will prevail.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks till and Raven….but it wasn’t what I’d thought about in advance. When I started typing, it just poured out. It was truly odd, as it seemed to write itself.

      You can cue the twilight zone music now….

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      And till Thanks for your reply to my Osan question. I met quite a few AF in Korea, but never got to Osan myself. I was a civilian, flying in and out of Seoul.
