America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- December 14, 2015 – December 18, 2015 Remember 9/11

Hello!

WOW! Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!

But before we get to that happy, joyful day we have….

another GOP debate this week…Tuesday…hosted by that solid conservative media figure, Wolf Blitzer. I jest, of course, about Blitzer’s bias.

There’s also more Fed Reserve/interest rate anxiety ahead, and probably more empty Presidential comments on ISIS.

Our Superstitious President Victor Davis Hanson

0’s Awful Year Jim Geraghty

Attacking the Truth Tom sowell

The Dems’ Terror Compassion Gap Glenn Reynolds

Mum on 0’s Failures The Federalist

Selling out American Workers the latest Omnibus spending bill….Powerline

A Surprising Snag for 0 a roadblock from one of his own officials…..

Lost! 10,000 Lost…. from yesterday’s Congressional testimony on DHS procedures

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh boy, and good morning! One week before Christmas….can you believe it?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Regularly the past years, I’ve gone to the UK Telegraph to read the obits of passing greatness. Here is one: from this week: Commander David Corkhill . I always wonder if the one I’m reading will be the last, as these men, and sometimes women , leave us. May God bless them all, and much appreciation to that paper for its faithful recording of that era.

    • lysie says:

      Thanks for the link to the Commander David “Corky” Corkhill article, Molly.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      You are welcome. Off to the races…back later…did you ever make it to Tractor Supply? That’s on my list too…
      The past year, we have had some new stores open…grocery, etc…all year it’s been my plan to go check them out….sigh…not happened.

    • lysie says:

      Yes. We did make it to Tractor Supply. As you know that is one of my favorite stores.

    • tillacum says:

      MMMMM. Looks good.
      NO Molly, this year Christmas has been rushing in like a tornado. We’ve had one party, then invited to a couple, time in the community garden. Yesterday we pulled some turnips, beets, picked all sort of Asian greens. This evening I’ll clean, cook and freeze them.
      Off to Waso this a.m. to finish shopping.

  2. The Raven says:

    Absolutely ridiculous. This fear of government shutdown is such an effective weapon it has paralyzed the Republican party. It needs to be fixed for our government’s sake. Rush is right….why bother with Republicans…..what do they do? Now, they’ve even caved to Washington DC charter schools.
    However, if the shoe was on the other foot, if the President was a Pub and Congress was Dem, the Democrats would not cave they would blame the shutdown on the Republicans and it would work.

    Maybe a Constitutional Amendment is needed. Get the States involved. But by that time, the USA will be gone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      There seem to be way too many troubling aspects to this Spending bill…they tried to sell it first by telling us “End to oil embargo”! Great…but that was the first and last laudable item in the deal, it sounds like.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Are your travel preparations proceeding? Everything checking out on your motor home? I’ve forgotten what you call it.. One of my cousins has landed similarly in AZ for the winter. They live in KC, and this will be their second winter down there at a park.

    • tillacum says:

      Get some Republicans with a backbone and NOTHING to hide, then let a government shutdown be bandied about by the democrats. We need to put some Republicans into office who have a clean background and a lot of strong, conservative, PURE American
      love of country.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Awful…till it passed the House this a.m., and some members of the Freedom Caucus voted “aye” too. Local radio guy is very, very upset.

    • tillacum says:

      Molly, I read, a couple of days ago that the bill would pass, the republicans were about to flaamox the conservatives, and they did. I’m quite upset. Now I need to read the whole thing. I want to know how much they gave nobama to import the isis immigrants.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Reid and Pelosi are extra happy! But I heard that when the bill passed in the House, the Rs stood with the Dems and applauded, too! It’s just sickening.

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That is delicious! And it reminds me….we have a new restaurant opening in the area….and its specialty is all kinds of melted cheese sandwiches. Oh my….There’s a similar restaurant already downtown, and it’s quite popular, and the servings huge…the times I have been there, I’ve brought home most of the sandwich.

      Good morning everyone. Thank goodness we are quickly approaching the shortest day of the year – Jemian, we love that don’t we?…and winter has been so mild…it’s crazy, this global warming.

    • The Raven says:

      Yes, this global warming weather is crazy. But they warned us that it was el nino, didn’t they? [Notice on the above average temperature area where Lysieland and Mollyland are.]

      I was reading in many sites about the Cruz/Rubio debate. Maybe that’s a good thing. Like when the founders argued in public (federalist papers) for the Constitution. Rubio and Cruz would take the debate to such a high level they would leave everyone else out.

      Next Cruz/Rubio debate topic can be Obama stopping the sail-by ships in the Chinese occupied South China Sea. Then, what to do about the Obama debt. Then something else….like reversing Obama’s policies, and soon, after a few months, one would simply choose between Rubio and Cruz, as the rest of the field (Hillary, Trump, etc) would be gone???? (I know, dream on)

    • lysie says:

      If weather didn’t change from day to day, week to week and year to year we wouldn’t need overpaid panic-stricken forecasters would we?

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly. Can you imagine someone not liking melted cheese? I can’t.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Solar farm completed No more donations to my alma mater, and I will tell them why….ridiculous waste of money.

    • lysie says:


      Producing an expected 7.86 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) the first year or approximately 2% of the typical electrical demand for the Urbana campus

      Hardly worth the cost, I say.

    • Jemian says:

      Yes, Molly, we do love that! Perforce, spring must be following close behind. It is the promise of spring which gets me through the long, long January night.

      We were in the grips of an El Niño drought from mid-June through the end of October. We had virtually no water running through our pipes starting in July. We got by by having a truck of water brought to our house once or twice a week. Thankfully, it began raining again. But, be warned! This El Niño is extreme.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Afternoon, everyone….Glad the drought is over Jemian…well if our mild winter so far is El Nino related , I’m all for it. But I know there are problems elsewhere with it.
      Purposely did not listen to much news today or talk radio….have had my fill for the week, but tomorrow, may change my mind. You know it just gets to be poisonous sometimes??

    • tillacum says:

      Sometimes a good bacon and egg sandwich is wonderful to start the day off, with a cuppa.
      lysie, Molly and Prairie, how are your sniffles, aches and such. Hopefully you are all on the mend.
      Today I had my first sonogram. My cardiologist thought he heard a murmer. It was really interesting to watch and learn the various slides the techno made. It”s the first time I’ve seen the inside of a heart, working. Very interesting.
      I watched Trump, yesterday, arrive in Mesa, AZ. There were about 10,000 people awaiting his arrival. He’d already appeared somewhere else, but I’ve forgotten. Suddenly, the nose of a “shark” appeared rolling in front of the cameras and the hanger then the rest of the airplane followed. He worked the crowd then appeared on the raised “stage” and gave his candidate speech.

  4. The Raven says:

    Strange but True story

    Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania asked that Lynch Hall, named after a Clyde Lynch, be renamed not because of anything Clyde Lynch did, but because his name was too similar to the verb “lynching.”

  5. Molly Pitcher says:

    I guess the jury is still deliberating in B-More? That may be big news this afternoon, besides the Fed’s action.

  6. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We will gather ’round your inviting breakfast. Good morning!
      Do you have alot going on today?

    • lysie says:

      Grocery shopping and Tractor Supply shopping. I hope Greg will install the new sump pump so I can do laundry. I’ve been washing Sarah’s scrubs by hand.

      How about you?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I hope he gets the new pump in, too!
      Exercise as usual…grocery & errands…desk work. My husband has a luncheon, and teaches a class, and he needs to get his part of the Christmas card operation done…please, please….
      Our old cat is still going…so that is something…

    • lysie says:

      Just finishing up Christmas cards. 🙂
      Need more stamps.

      I think of your precious cat….often. ((((hugs))))

    • tillacum says:

      WOW, you gave us a great selection. I would love the dish in the middle. Hmm, which one. Good Morning lysie.
      Molly, what’s with you kitty? Is it an age problem?
      Off to the dentist…just a cleaning. We have the gentlest dentist. He’s a gem, and his helpers are great, some so funny. His office is always full of laughter and kidding.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning till….yes, in human years Casper is 101 +, I think that was the figure I came up with. Seems like he is holding on to see youngest son again when he arrives for Christmas.

  7. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    To urban liberals, guns are like cigarettes — products that when used as intended only hurt or kill people, and that are also low-class and crude.

    – Jonah Goldberg, Why the War on Guns has Failed

  8. Prairie says:

    Went to the MD…..Mr. Prairie had to become quite the squeaky wheel to get me in to be seen before noon, they wanted me to come in at 4:30….Anyway, sinus infection and bronchitis. On mega- powered antibiotics.

    I just lost several days out of week that I could scarcely afford to, Christmas season and all.

  9. Molly Pitcher says:

    For some strange reason, I’m up for the debate tonite….

  10. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  11. edinva says:

    Molly, the “JV” is “contained.” That is all you need to know! Sleep well.

  12. tillacum says:

    I agree, she doesn’t look happy to be here, she should have covered her face and eyes so we wouldn’t see the evil eyes she was giving the camera. She’s showing Americans she doesn’t like being in America.
    What I’m really SICK of is that creature in Our whitehouse protecting islam and the muslims who wish us all dead. I loath him and the real power behind his desk in the oval office. She was produced by her parents for the purpose she is performing now.

  13. Prairie says:

    Hello all. I am still sick….symptoms may be lessening some but I still feel lousy. I’m off to go to bed for the afternoon. Take care, all.

  14. lysie says:

    Thanks for the start, Molly.

    Good morning everyone.
