America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- February 15, 2016 – February 19, 2016 Remember 9/11

Hello!

In the days ahead, expect more positioning and speculation in regard to Congress vs. the President on the Supreme Court vacancy. Of all times….an election year when it seemed everything was already hanging in the balance….this is the worst.

Then, in the days after the latest contentious R debate and before the Saturday S.C. primary, there will be more insults and attacks. I’d rather the focus was on Hillary!, Bernie, 0 and the failed policies of the Left.

And finally, Wall Street and the markets: Is another recession in our future? If so, what does that mean for the 2016 election?

They really don’t like her Grim news…

    Hello! So far, so good. One more day of weekend to go.

  2. Molly Pitcher says:

    Goodness. CSPAN is covering live the Scalia mourners at the Supreme Court, and there are still people paying their respects.

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote

      The IRS attacks conservative groups — and not one IRS worker has the integrity or guts to resign on principle, not one. Political correctness is a creed, and the creed holds that American conservatives are ignorant, stupid, and evil. This has been the creed for a generation, but people are angry now because we see, for the first time, political correctness powering an administration and a federal bureaucracy the way a big V-8 powers a sports car. The Department of Justice contributes its opinion that the IRS was guilty of no crime — and has made other politically slanted decisions too; and those decisions all express the credo of thought-police liberalism, as captured by the motto soon to be mounted (we hear) above the main door at the White House, the IRS, and the DOJ: We know what’s best; you shut up.

      -D Gelernter, The Elephant in the Room

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning, and it’s Friday! I’ve been surveying bumper stickers. Surprisingly, with all the primary turmoil, etc., I’ve seen very few bumper stickers….maybe 1 Trump…..1 Hillary!, and that is it.

    • The Raven says:

      Molly.…today, you get your paint scratched. So you put the bumper sticker on someone else’s car.

    • The Raven says:

      You know, Congress can set the number of Supreme Court justices and has changed the number from time to time. They don’t have to add one. They can subtract one. Perhaps, the last one added. Or the youngest. Or the oldest. Or the next one vacant.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Whoa…scratched….so bumper stickers are going, going….gone.?

    • tillacum says:

      We’re going to have that this a.m. His feet just hit the floor. Except we’ll be having left over steak instead of bacon, of course, with a cuppa.
      I sent you an article, if you want to share it, it’s a bit long but interesting.
      Good Morning Everyone. Beautiful day in central Texas. I’ll be outside, may play a little golf today. Wish you in the white stuff belt, could join us.

    • tillacum says:

      Molly, just saw the socialist’s emblem for the ex-bum (communist) who is running for president. The silent majority “may” rise up and elect someone who REALLY believes in the American Idea, not the one preached in the mass media.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning till. It is a verrrry windy day down here on the Gulf,south of you. Warm…..but the onshore wind is not going to make for pleasant walking.
      I would like to see some coverage of the Scalia ceremony at the Supreme Court, but so far have missed it. Found a photo of the casket being carried up the steps tho ..that must have taken an effort of strength and endurance. May God in his mercy bless our late Justice.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    THIS is sickening.

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning Lysie, I just had a fruit bowl that looks just like that!!! Now I need an egg that looks like that.

      I’m getting real down with the almost inevitable win of Trump and the inevitable loss of what we all hold so dear. The loss of the Presidency, the Senate, and the Court means the loss of freedom. The loss of cheap energy, Even the loss of common sense. We will need to be told everything as tyranny enters our lives from all sides and the global economy fails.

      What is so sad, is that we know what will happen when the liberals win. We know what will happen if they are defeated. The choice to the uninformed is left to propaganda and promises.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav.

      I cringe to think that Hillary or Sanders as President, Rav. In over 7 years O has shaped our country where it’s hard to recognize. Imagine another 4 years with another. 😦

      Pray , Rav…pray.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank so much!
      Joining you in prayer…
      And the list…thanks Raven…..now how could I forget Portman??
      Apparently the CNN R town hall last night was fairly decent…and part 2 is tonite…
      And finally I caught a little of CNN yesterday in another way: promoting Denmark as a viable socialist model for us. How do you like that? We may hear more of that as a way the Left media outlines their future for us.

      Really: Denmark…..U.S. Sure…soooooo much in common🙄

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ron Johnson would be a loss…now I wonder…there have to be 1 or 2 vulnerable Dems available to knock off….

    • The Raven says:

      Maybe the left wingers are paying Trump to run.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yeah…maybe that’s one of the deals he likes to brag about.

    • tillacum says:

      Hi Molly, it’s really windy up here too, but warm. I was thinking of spreading some fire ant
      sand, but hubby recommended I wait until the “breeze” lets up a bit. It’s still windy. I was hoping for some golf but someone came over and needed help to convince the Sec. of
      State, they need to incorporate their historical meeting place for veterans and citizens. It’s been here for the purpose of gatherings since 1908. It does need a lot of renovation and sprucing up around the acreage. I guess we’ll be in the middle of that too. Being retired is not for someone who wants of laze about.

  6. lysie says:

    It’s being reported that O will not attend Scalia’s funeral. Good you *&^&*&Z&*!!!!

    No one wants you there!!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      He is such a pathetic juvenile. Yes, stay away…no telling what extra insults he’d provide.

      Ok...God and Politics in Esther. That’s the title I just placed on my “must read ” list.

    • lysie says:

      Sounds like a good read, Molly.

    • edinva says:

      I’m sure there’s no one the Scalia family would rather see as they bury their husband/father/ grandfather/brother/ cousin/uncle than ole Barry. I’m also guessing it will be a rather old time traditional Latin Funeral Mass, so at least Uncle Joe has some distant familiarity with that, and the whole RC ritual. Besides which, the links beckon.

    • The Raven says:

      Molly….here’s a list of the ‘Pub seats from Dan Henninger’s WSJ column:

      Justice Scalia’s death forces to the surface not only the Court but five at-risk GOP Senate seats: New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte, Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, Ohio’s Rob Portman, Illinois’s Mark Kirk and Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson. Throw in Marco Rubio’s open seat. Democrats need to win four to end the GOP majority.

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • mustknowhistory says:

      Delicious breakfast!

      Can the news get any worse?

    • lysie says:

      Hi mkh. Now what? I was without internet several hours last night.
      Do you mean the probability the pubs will cave on the SC nominee?

    • mustknowhistory says:

      My comment was just a reflection of the past serval days, weeks, months…nothing in particular.

    • Jemian says:

      I’m thinking theoretically the news could be worse, but in reality, I think this as grim as it has been in my lifetime. I really hesitate to read the headlines. I find myself reading the fluff at Yahoo because the real news is so depressing. If I hadn’t read the ending of The Book, I would be quite depressed.

    • lysie says:

      I see.

      I pray it doesn’t get worse, but the jack@sses in office are trying their best to make it that way.

    • Jemian says:

      I am really trying not to be suspicious about Scalia’s death, but it would not be the first time in history a murder for power had occurred. Why do we think humans are noble now and wouldn’t conceive of such a thing? Of course, it is a possibility!

      Why wasn’t there an autopsy?

    • lysie says:

      That’s the sad part. It’s plausible. 😦

    • Jemian says:

      And on these happy notes, I think I’ll go read a regency romance and then go to bed!

      I pray your day today is a good one. The wish is for everybody!

    • lysie says:

      You, too, Jem. Thanks. Enjoy the book. ((hugs))

    • The Raven says:

      Jem, with the left, the end justifies the means. And a nice lead-in to today’s

      Morning Quote:

      No cause, ever, in the history of all mankind, has produced more cold-blooded tyrants, more slaughtered innocents, and more orphans than socialism with power. It surpassed, exponentially, all other systems of production in turning out the dead. The bodies are all around us. And here is the problem: No one talks about them. No one honors them. No one does penance for them. No one has committed suicide for having been an apologist for those who did this to them. No one pays for them. No one is hunted down to account for them. It is exactly what Solzhenitsyn foresaw in The Gulag Archipelago: “No, no one would have to answer. No one would be looked into.” . . .

      To be moral beings, we must acknowledge these awful things appropriately and bear witness to the responsibilities of these most murderous times. Until socialism—like Nazism or fascism confronted by the death camps and the slaughter of innocents—is confronted with its lived reality, the greatest atrocities of all recorded human life, we will not live “after socialism.”

      It will not happen. The pathology of Western intellectuals has committed them to an adversarial relationship with the culture—free markets and individual rights—that has produced the greatest alleviation of suffering; the greatest liberation from want, ignorance, and superstition; and the greatest increase of bounty and opportunity in the history of all human life.

      This pathology allows Western intellectuals to step around the Everest of bodies of the victims of Communism without a tear, a scruple, a regret, an act of contrition, or a reevaluation of self, soul, and mind.

    • tillacum says:

      WOOF, WOOF, WOOF to everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      What a breakfast! Ok….now we can take that 5 mile hike we’re taking this a.m in the frigid temps. 😉

    • tillacum says:

      Rave, that is so true. During my early years, we were told about Stalin and his complete evil as a being. He would actually insist on so many people be slaughtered each day.
      Now we have a group of elected, in our country, accepting a communist, running for president and a islamist who serves with them. It’s amazing to watch and listen.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wow…good morning everyone.

      till you made me laugh..

      …..there is a new, sort of, concern I thought of early this a.m. That is: a few Senate races that are imperative to retain this Fall. One is Rand Paul’s. I need to research the other ones. As maddening as the Rs can be.. in races against Dems, they are still our team, at least this year.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Speaking of the Bible, I heard a great interview with an author of a book on Esther yesterday. His idea is that it is so pertinent to our times…because…there is no mention of God in it, & as you know, that is pretty amazing. So… What is there? ….well politics…potential annihilation of a people…despair…but also courage and self sacrifice.

      I will post the title and author later

      Love the quote. Great!

  8. lysie says:

    Good evening everyone. Snow, then rain, then wet snow and now snow. What a mess out there.

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ok! We are well fed as usual. Good morning lysie….everyone

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly.

      It’s hard to imagine that it’s 50 degrees warmer than the other day and yet…..it’s only 30 degrees outside. I’ll take it. Ha!

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      Republicans have been waiting 30 years for payback for the shameful rejection of Bork; that day has arrived. Time to pay up, Dems.

    • lysie says:

      If only. I pray they get spines , Rav.

    • tillacum says:

      I love those. They are so easy to prepare.
      We’re in this election year for a wild ride.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, till. We are getting rain on top of the snow and it’s turning into a slopping mess.

    • edinva says:

      Lysie, when I first started coming here I was a size 8. Now I’m a few sizes larger. OK, more than a few. All your and your breakfasts’ fault!!!

      This afternoon I decided to lay down and take a nap. Not five minutes later the radio station interrupted loudly with breaking news. Obama was going to make a statement. He came on and rambled, rambled and rambled some more. I had to get up and turn it off. He was crying ’cause the big bad, nasty, rotten, miserable Republicans aren’t going to let his SCOTUS appointment get a fair hearing. blah blah blah blah.

      Weird day here … within about 26 hours we had bitter cold temps/heavy snow/rain/snow showers/ sleet/more rain/fog/gloom/more rain/warming temps/sunshine. Got up to lower 50s from single digits night before last. Let’s hear it for climate change (that we used to call ‘weather’).

  10. Molly Pitcher says:

    Evening everyone…sorry about the weather in the n.e. I don’t think it will last too long…then the temps rise again. Back home is getting hit, too.

    Driving thru LA today we had dome heavy rain, but the worst was n. of us…the tornado in Alexandria, LA for instance. At lunch I had a sweet potato beignet..ok, I like sweet potatoes…I love beignets…but the combo not so much…too,too heavy.

    • edinva says:

      Molly, some things are best just left along, to wit, beignets! Haven’t had one in forever. So, so good!

      Right now we have rain/freezing rain .. gonna be a total mess overnight BUT by noon, it’ll be plain ole rain and temps @ 51, so all that pretty snow will be gone. Just grateful I dont have to commute to work in the am. The roads/metro will be ungodly. See, there are advantages to ‘maturity.’

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hope it’s already warming up…sun is bright and clear here after yesterday’s storms.

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start, Molly. We are having a heat wave. Minus 2 right now. Minus 12 overnight. I must put on sandals. 😉

  12. edinva says:

    G’day, Molly, lysie, all

    I’m really sad about Justice Scalia’s passing. For his family, and his colleagues, and our nation’s legal system. He was the Justice with the best (if not only) sense of humor. And the timing couldn’t be worse. Gotta admit, tho, that he was there in TX doing what he loved, so there’s that. I’m not sure which I’m finding more distressing, the politicization that will get good and ugly, or the conspiracy theories. Can we not acknowledge that J. Scalia was 79 years old and considerably overweight? People die! Especially older people, especially older heavy people*. OK?

    I know not to complain as compared to CNY or Ohio, but, man, is it cold here! Brrrrr. Not often we get minus readings. Tonight after midnight we’re supposed to get a little snow, but it’s supposed to be accompanied by ice, so that’s a concern both for safety on the roads (the VA DOT asked folks to just stay off the roads till 10am tomorrow) and in terms of losing power. I’ve charged up all battery operated equipment, and fill tubs/buckets of water. At most I suspect we’d have power restored in 12 hours or so.

    Happy George Washington’s Birthday, everyone. That is still the official holiday and I far prefer it to including all of them (especially a couple who’ve served in this millennium, and end of last, who shan’t be named).

    *one of which such persons I am !

    • lysie says:

      I’m with you, ed, re:birthdays.

      I suppose some people question the death of Scalia because of the low life actions of the dems.

    • Jemian says:

      Ed, are you sure Washington’s birthday is first? I thought Lincolnshire was the 12th and Washington’s was the 22nd.

    • Jemian says:

      Dumb spell check. Lincolnshire = Lincoln’s

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I like separate birthdays as well. Each deserves to be honored on the right day.

    • edinva says:

      Jemian, I’m not clear on your question? Yes, LIncoln’s b’day is 2/12 and Washington’s 2/22. When I was in school we observed both birthdays (day off of school!). Some years back (1970s – 1980s) when the movement arose to move holidays to Mondays when possible, to achieve a longer weekend, they decided to rename “Washington’s Birthday” to “Presidents Day” to celebrate ALL presidents. It also had to do with the inclusion of MLK day into federal holidays, so rather than adding one more holiday, they incorporated both Abe’s and George’s birthdays into the one day. But, the U.S. government still recognizes the official federal holiday as “Washington’s Birthday.” I don’t like throwing the likes of Clinton and Obama in with Washington and Lincoln.

      Our forecast of 1″ of snow is now at @ 5-6″ and climbing .. it is STILL snowing at 1pm, after starting in the early hours. Alas, it IS a federal holiday so not much loss today but probably delayed openings for govt and closed schools tomorrow. Thankfully no loss of power despite there being ice mixed with the early snow.

  13. Prairie says:

    I agree Molly. We were stunned about the Scalia news. We try hard to remember that God is in control though.

    The politicization is going to be nauseating.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes…ironically as someone pointed out, if we had more Sacalias on the bench, the politicization of the Court would be a lot less. Its significance would decrease. This mess is the result, largely, of judicial activism.
