America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- November 23, 2015 – November 27, 2015 Remember 9/11


Belgium has extended its highest alert status as more raids were conducted Sunday. Authorities requested media silence on these raids, and the media cooperated.

In this country, the NYPD conducted a terrorist attack drill at an old abandoned subway station.

And the President’s words and INactions attract more and more attention.

Donald Trump’s comments about a registry of Moslems, distorted or not, set up or not, are still a distraction.

    The Power of his personality is not much, it seems. No oceans receding, no terrorists fading away..the era of Peace and Goodwill will have to wait.

  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you, thank you…I’ll skip the bagel in favor of more stuffing later….We also had cinnamon ice cream for dessert.

    • lysie says:

      Cinnamon ice cream…..Love it.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      The next question: Should I get peppermint ice cream for Dec.? My husband would love it…I would have to ration it out….

      So, are you about ready??

    • lysie says:

      Yes to ice cream.

      Not quite…for the.. ready question.

      I had Greg check the weather in Vegas and he was surprised that it is so cool there.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I don’t know the elevation there, but that may have something to do with it…high deserts can be cooler, especially at night. During the day, better. But the rise and fall can be dramatic.

    • tillacum says:

      I don’t think I’m ready for that right now…I’m still full. Speaking of ice cream, Molly, Blue
      Bell is back on the freezer shelves. Later, we’ll have pumpkin pie and Blue Bell.
      I know everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family. We had a nice small group. Football later. Good friends, good food, God at the head of the table. It was a nice day.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning till. It’s nice to hear about our friend’s happy moments.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      TEXAS Greetings to you till… Yes…Blue Bell…I will have some in Feb when we are down there. YUM

    Morning diversion

    Check out this rare photo of a kingfisher in action

    Diversion #2…T-Day is over….back to politics

  4. lysie says:

    Nice day we had. Hope all of you did, too. There was plenty to eat, but I behaved. 🙂

    Greg’s turkey was delicious….moist…tasty…yummy!

  5. The Raven says:

    Well, Johnny Manziel is in deep doo doo – after going to rehab earlier this year and announcing he was a changed man, he got caught partying in a two night bender and then telling the coach it was an old video. He got demoted to third string.

    • lysie says:

      Saw that. What the heck is wrong with these athletes?

      Taters, butternut squash and rutabaga peeled and in cold water. Cabbage salad made. Stuffing is baking in the oven. Greg said the turkey should be done in 3 hours.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      He had so many chances to get it straight too! Some never get those opportunities, and HE threw them away. I just can’t get over that part.

  6. Prairie says:

    Wishing all my ATRW friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for your friendship, for the links, for your punditry observations, for the companionship and camaraderie. Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.

    • lysie says:

      🙂 Same for you, Prairie. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. We are blessed in so many ways in spite of you know who.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks priaire You, too!
      I am grateful for Liberty, In God We Trust, & E Pluribus Unum, the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution, & the Star-Spangled banner, long may it wave…I am grateful for Don’t Shoot til you see the whites of their Eyes, for Valley Forge, Antietam and Appomattox, the men who stormed Normandy, Iwo Jima, and for Mom & Apple Pie. I’m grateful for the movies of John Ford and Frank Capra, for all those Irving Berlin “I love America” songs, and for everyone here at ATRW who continue to share and support each other thru these times.

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

      Gobble Gobble

      Molly – cutting the bird into pieces is something I’ve seen in other places. The “Best Recipes” cook book precedes their go-to recipes with a couple of pages of background research on how they came up with the procedures. For turkey, they had problems — the shape of the bird and location of parts almost guarantees the breast will be overcooked when the dark meat is the right temperature. So they tried all sorts of things like cooking upside down, different oven temperatures, etc and finally ended up with a small bird (7-8 pounds) as the answer. The bigger birds are too hard to cook without either over or under cooking. I suppose you cook 2-3 small birds with a crowd.

      The other solution is to cut the bird into parts and cook them different lengths of time, although with this recipe – you don’t get to present the beautiful browned Norman Rockwell bird at the table.

      Anyway, I’m cooking the bird in the smoker this year. And I’m trying the recipe’s drop dead gravy recipe as well.

    • lysie says:

      Greg’s preparing the turkey to smoke as I type.

    • Jemian says:

      Try the pumpkin pie. It is fantastic!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Love the gifs. Gobble, gobble back to everyone!
      Well, maybe I will give the “chopped up bird” version another go….sometime. FWIW, I”m doing the turkey upside down this year. Last year I meant to but forgot.

      Did you hear this joke? about the incident on the Syrian border this week between Russia and Turkey? This was the year the turkey shot back!

    • The Raven says:

      Good morning Lysie and all.

      Be forewarned that Debbie Wasserman Shultz has published a guide for liberal nieces and nephews – providing talking points for arguing with their conservative uncles at Thanksgiving. They have everything covered from Trump to Global warming

      Here’s an answer to one of their talking points:

      Climate Change would be easier for the libs if they had facts on their side (you know…if the temperature actually was going up) — so as it is, they need to use scientists opinions based on unverified models. And, if they exclude the scientists who make a good living by accepting research money for global warming, then 97% of the scientists DON’T believe man-made global warming is something for concern.

  8. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  9. The Raven says:

    I am thankful for the coming end to Obama’s term (hope we make it) and the red and blue lines heading in the right direction

    Morning quotes:

    “… when President Barack Obama says that defeating ISIS is going to take a long time, how is that different from saying that he is going to do very little, very slowly?”

    – Thomas Sowell

    “The leader of the free world urged a broader assault on Islamic State yesterday and called for more nations to join forces to crush the enemy. In response, President Obama said he would think about it.”

    Michael Goodwin, NY Post

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Excellent! Thanks for the links Raven..gobble, gobble….
      you know since you left the area, 2 or 3 old-timey farms have re-established themselves in our beautiful valley. One seems to raise goats; another, chickens, geese, and vegetables; another farm, sheep. We drive past 2 of these several times a week, usually. And last Sunday, one of the farmers we passed was just pulling a goose out of his gaggle (?). He had that bird by its feet, it was upside down, and flapping its wings, excited and it was striking to see. It occurred to me that that farmer must be pretty strong to control that angry goose!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      BTW, that super-smart President of ours, with his super smart staff, doesn’t and can’t and probably won’t pronounce President HollanDE’s name correctly. So there! Pathetic….

    • The Raven says:

      Yes…I left when Lebron was a teenager. And Obama was an Illinois State Congressman. Florida had just introduced the word chads to my vocabulary.

  10. Molly Pitcher says:

    So 0 is holding a press conference with Hollande…that means another dose of confusion, lies, and extremely muddled thinking from 0. Do I want to listen??

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Well, I’ve just learned from her son of the death of his mother an old, old friend. It is a shock as the chemo she had just started reduced her capacity to fight infections, and she went so fast, and so unexpectedly. Vicki was only a couple of years older than I, but her children were older than mine, so she often gave me (unsolicited) advice, but I needed it.
      She really was shaping me up, I think, and oh what an irreverent sense of humor she had. Often I would crack up, sitting in choir practice or working on some project, over some comment she made. These are long ago memories, but still close in my heart. RIP, Vicki, you will never be forgotten

    • Prairie says:

      I’m sorry, Molly. It’s hard to lose our friends.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks prairie….you are right…hard.
      Another strange day of news ..close to home, and far away.

    • lysie says:

      Treasure the fond memories of Vicki, Molly. (((hugs)))

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks lysie I will remember her with smiles on my face, yes.

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    Good morning everyone.

    Monday Morning quiz:

    Which NFL football team was named when their coach insisted they use his last name for the team name?

    Hint 1: It isn’t the Washington Redskins. Hint 2: It is Condoleezza Rice’s favorite team.

  14. The Raven says:

    Wow…every time I hear Obama talk, I feel violated. His rhetoric is challenging my beliefs and it is certainly not microaggressions, but overt assertions. Amplifying my fears is the coddling Press; experts at turning white into black, up into down, lies into truth. And what happens if we have President Hillary Rodham Clinton?

    I therefore demand a safe space (/sarc) . As a white Republican male, where do I go?

    And that is a good lead-in to today’s quote (from today’s WSJ’s Notable and Quotable)

    Student leaders have pulled the mat out from 60 University of Ottawa students, ending a free on-campus yoga class over fears the teachings could be seen as a form of “cultural appropriation.”
    Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering free weekly yoga instruction to students since 2008, says she was shocked when told in September the program would be suspended, and saddened when she learned of the reasoning.
    Staff at the Centre for Students with Disabilities believe that “while yoga is a really great idea and accessible and great for students . . . there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice,” according to an email from the centre. . . .
    The centre goes on to say, “Yoga has been under a lot of controversy lately due to how it is being practiced,” and which cultures those practices “are being taken from.”
    The centre official argues since many of those cultures “have experienced oppression, cultural genocide and diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy . . . we need to be mindful of this and how we express ourselves while practicing yoga.”

    • mustknowhistory says:

      Sheesh. The instructor should just call it something else, something which has no cultural reference. Are we to ban all historical and cultural references? What happens when they ban Beethoven for being German?

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav and mnh.

      Strange. No yoga for fear of cultural appropriation, yet Bruce can become Caitlyn. I guess gender appropriation is allowed.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      The earliest manifestations of this sickness were the moves against using American Indian-related names & mascots for sports teams…I think that is correct, and it is still on-going of course. The “fight” against Chief Illiniwik at U of I took years and ultimately succeeded. So who knows how long all this will last? There seems to be deep well of all kinds of resentments out there! I resent the resenters! That’s my grievance and I demand satisfaction. Where do I go??

    • lysie says:

      Yes. I resent the resenters, also.

    • tillacum says:

      How about calling it a Stretching class or Exercise class? Seems students today are not getting the education their parents thought they were paying for. I’d ask for money back.
