Yesterday the Dow had its fourth worst day of 2015 plunging over 367 points. One would think this is O’s plan. Agree?

AND yesterday O gave Ryan credit for passing the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill.

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you and good morning! The sun is shining…a tad windy…making plans for the day which include church and a Christmas luncheon there after the service. Then home and a nice nap…..These naps are becoming more and more important…hmmmm…

    • lysie says:

      It does look yummy.

      Send the sun our way.

      Yesterday we attended another funeral. Our dear friend Rachel has been quite ill for the past year. RIP Rachel.

      The roads were fine when we arrived at the funeral home in Oswego, NY. On the way home was another story. There was lake effect snow with an accumulation of 5-7 inches …it looked like. Boo! All will melt as temps in the 60s are coming in a few days.

      Advent Prayer

      Holy Jesus, as I spend these days waiting to celebrate your birth, give me the grace to greet you without suppressed sighs of weariness. Grant me the spirit of generosity; let me open my front door to you, without any thought of inconvenience. Let me work every teaching and commandment you gave us, let me know your love and share it abundantly with all I may meet, remembering throughout this time your message and example of long-suffering love and infinite patience.

      Amen.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you for the lovely prayer lysie. Am so sorry that you have had another loss in your circle of friends and family. We are heading out shortly for a little exercise. Weather is about perfect, but rain more likely tomorrow. We are also looking at schedules to go see the Star Wars movie, but later in the week, it looks like.

    I came across an interesting history tidbit that I was unaware of. The 16th amendment (income tax) was passed because the federal government took in fully 1/3 of revenues from alcohol tax and prohibition would end that source. Who knew?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That is interesting….and once prohibition ended, that the income tax was abolished, right??? Oh……

    • The Raven says:

      Yes, of course, the income tax is now ended as well. ‘Tax the Rich’ was replaced with ‘Tax the Glenfiddich’.

      Actually, I read that income tax fact in a book review claiming the progressives got their start with the prohibition amendment

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I was going to ask you the book title. well, I think Prohibition came out of a Progressive movement which was well under way…

    • mustknowhistory says:

      And don’t forget the direct election of senators. That amendment is right after the tax amendment.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good point…And the enfranchisement of women?? Maybe we better not go there, altho…

    • The Raven says:

      Yes, MKH!! Reminds me of my younger days. I was on Free Republic right before the Monica stuff learning about Conservatism, and this other blogger on FR was giving me a history lesson. He enlightened me about the different government entities and how the Constitution provided for democracy with only the House. The Senators were chosen by the States and the President by the electoral college who were in turn representatives of the people. And the Supremes were chosen by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

      Although I knew this, I had never thought of our government that way and it was certainly an eye opener for me. I was later chatting with someone else on FR about what I had learned form this Freeper mentor when he told me my teacher of history and the Constitution was none other than Mark Levin (F. Lee Levin as he was known then from his occasional appearances on Rush). Someday, I’ll call into Mark’s radio show and tell him how he influenced me.

    Morning quote:

    “… he looks like a creature genetically engineered in a lab to crush HRC. By dint of his youth and energy, he turns her greatest strengths into weaknesses. He’s a devastatingly good debater. As he showed Tuesday night, he can take a punch. And his political instincts are brilliant.”

    Covering up for 0 The Federalist…did I already post this….feels like it, but the saga continues, so the old is new, the new is old….

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning lysie That is a lovely breakfast…
      Thanks for getting us up and going. You are a year-round Christmas present!

    • lysie says:

      Thank you , Molly. Were you able to get much done yesterday?

      Cooler temps for the next few days, but by mid week milder temps headed our way.

    • tillacum says:

      That is a colorful scrambled egg. Think I’ll copy it, as soon as Hubby gets out from under the covers.
      You’re right Molly. lysie is a year-round present.
      Has the Rave hit the road?
      We’re having 30 degree nights, but it jumps up to the 60 and 70s during the day.
      How about our royal elected voting to issue 300,000 visas to “Syrians”? I’ve had some questions about Paul Ryan. I think he is a Rino. Follows democrat orders.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning. till. Yours and Molly’s comments make be blush.

      Ryan….I’m sick of him all ready.

    • The Raven says:

      The Rav doesn’t hit the road until the 28th. We are today preparing this and that to have a family dinner next week (remember the blow torch? it takes a lot of prep time).
      And so, does Obama have the goods on everybody? He’s got Roberts & Ryan in his pocket. Who knows who else. Maybe he made a deal to keep some secret details quiet in exchange for cooperation. Otherwise, why would otherwise, normal people act like they are crazy? Help me out here. What’s going on?

    • lysie says:

      Lots of reason., Rav. The press, afraid of being called racist, afraid of riots, the press..etc.

      If you use a flame thrower wear an asbestos suit. 😉

    • The Raven says:

      Republicans in the news:

      ” ……. “

      Taylor Swift, a class act, responding (with silence) to cheap shots from feminist Paglia who called her “a blond, elitist Nazi Barbie” – probably because she is Republican.

    • lysie says:

      Jealous much , Camille??
