America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- August 24, 2015 – August 28, 2015 Remember 9/11

Hello!

Let’s highlight some good news for a change…how about those American heroes in Europe who thwarted a terrorist attack? They deserve so much gratitude for their quick actions. They seem stunned by the attention, they are probably modest, and seem matter of fact, about what happened, but I hope they will get some recognition. They certainly should.

And here in Louisiana today, everyday citizens captured a man who had shot, seriously shot, a trooper during a traffic stop. Others worked to stabilize the officer til help arrived. The community is continuing to rally behind the trooper as he struggles to survive.

So….let us not be passive in the face of aggression and danger. Two amazing examples can show us the way to reclaiming our American culture.

    Good morning everyone.

    Morning quote:

    I wish you bunch of sold-out, jaded, burned-out hacks would just go home and let some people who still have some vision and whose consciences haven’t been seared past the point of reminding them when they’re wrong take over and start to claw this nation back on to the path of sanity,

    Your ratings are in the single digits, your morals are in the gutter, your minds are on self-preservation and somewhere along the way you traded your honor for political expediency.

    You’ve violated your oaths, you’ve betrayed your country you’ve feathered your nests and you’ve sat on your hands while an imperial president has rubbed your noses in the dirt time after time.

    You’re no longer men, you’re puppets, you’re caricatures, jokes, a gaggle of fading prostitutes for sale to anybody who can do you a political favor.

    Charlie Daniels on Congress. ( I wish he’d get off the fence and say what he really means )

    The trip was great, Lysie [ fell asleep at 7:30 last night….now I’m up at 2am] ……we had great weather (couple of half days of rain…but otherwise- sun and 70’s & 80’s) and did some mega walking with our usual self-guided tours. Barcelona was great. Krakow was a surprise. Amsterdam was so-so……
    We are home for a few days and then off to see my MIL (who is getting very senile and may not know me) in Wisconsin over the holiday weekend. My mother is temporarily in assisted living.

    • lysie says:

      Happy you had a good time.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Sounds wonderful! I have cousins who lived in Krakow for awhile while the husband managed a plant there. They loved it…the children loved it and found it welcoming. As for senility, just take it as you find her. Seems like there are moments of clarity that are surprising, but short-lived.

    EPA blocked we’ll see if this sticks, but it’s a start…

    Good morning everyone.

  6. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    Last year, the College Board, the nonprofit corporation that controls all the high-school Advanced Placement courses and exams, published new guidelines for the AP U.S. history test. They read like a left-wing dream. Obsession with identity, gender, class, crimes against the American Indian and the sins of capitalism suffused the proposed guidelines for teachers of AP American history.

    As of a few weeks ago, that tilt in the guidelines has vanished. The College Board’s rewritten 2015 teaching guidelines are almost a model of political fair-mindedness. This isn’t just an about-face. It is an important political event.

    Good morning everyone.

    Thanks for the links, Molly.

    Good for the New Orleans school system!

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hey there….thank you for the breakfast as always, delicious! Saw a friend yesterday whose son is a firefighter out West, one of those on the front lines, these days, based in CO, but he’s been in AK, and more recently WA. She wishes she would hear from him more often, but he is just too busy. He loves what he does tho!

    • lysie says:

      Good morning , Molly. You are welcome.

      I have much respect for firefighters. Bless them all.

      Greg picked a huge amount of green beans this morning. Wish all of you were closer. We’d share.

  10. Prairie says:

    Hello all, checking in briefly. All is well here but lousy, lousy internet. Hope all here are well, will check in as able but it’s pretty inconvenient. Oh, how internet dependent we are and in ways that we maybe don’t always remember (statements, bills etc) Take care and God bless.

  11. The Raven says:

    DOW is minus 600 or so

  12. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    Thanks for the start and the uplifting report, Molly. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the good stories, Molly. Speaking of your being in LA, did you see the Robin Roberts Katrina special tonight? Happen to be visiting a friend in NY, so we watched it. You know I *never* watch TV. Those who survived that storm will never quite get over it. I haven’t been to NOLA since then and since the passing of our friends there over the past year, have no reason to return.
    Just up here in NY enjoying the last of summer. May have to divert to Albany where my brother is now in the hospital, in ICU, again. Long story, but praying for him and his sons. The past few weeks have been a roller coaster.
