America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 14 , 2016 – May 15 , 2016 Remember 9/11 ( Weekend Edition)

I was thinking.

The way O is pushing orders , most recently his transgender directive to public schools, it concerns me that he has no plans of leaving office.

Frightening. Am I being silly?

    G’day, all

    Fascinating, dramatic weather you’ve had, Molly! Yesterday was the 3rd break in the overcast/rain/dreary blah we’ve ‘enjoyed’ since roughly mid-April. And, perfect timing. My former roommate started a yard sale 18 years ago to raise funds for the abused women/children’s shelter in Alexandria. Over the years it’s grown into an annual event, and a yuuuuge sale that covers a full city block, then wraps around the block at both ends. It’s now supported by every faith congregation in the city, as well as other charities. They receive and sell some incredible items, too. Some junk as well, but mostly good stuff. And it’s very social. Dozens and dozens of volunteers from churches and schools Definitely a community event in an otherwise urban environment. Yesterday was this year’s day. The skies cleared late Friday afternoon, it got warm and sunny for Saturday. The rain and strong winds showed up at 3:01pm … for the sale that ends at 3pm! We did a VERY quick, record-breaking, take down of the many tables and stands, and were out of there in about half an hour. The shirt I was wearing is STILL damp 24+ hours later.

    Yesterday was one of my son’s graduation — at long last! — from George Mason University here in Fairfax. Bless his soul, he put it off as long as he could. Now he wants to continue on to a Ph.D. If only he were wealthy, he’d be a full-time, lifetime student. Alas, the world harkens and he must line up a J-O-B. He chose not to participate in the graduation exercise and instead helped out at the aforementioned sale. Next Sunday our family will have a day long celebration, doing the things he wants to do, dining where he wants to dine, etc. (but not before I get to spend ALL of Saturday with Zoe while her parents go to a wedding!) Life is GOOD!

    I hope other states line up behind NC and TX and tell Obama where to go with his potty mandate. I can’t get over the threat to with hold funding (otherwise known as bullying/blackmailing). But only to public schools, of course, for the private school dad. My memory from days when I was very active in school and county budgeting matters is that the federal contribution to our schools was only 5%. That may have changed, as my activity was mostly in the 90s. But for that minor a contribution, they sure do make a lot of mandates and put a lot of cost onto local taxpayers, everything from the requirement to educate children who don’t belong in the country to begin with, to the bathroom accommodations.

    And, the Administration is deleting/condemning the use of the word “felon” as somehow racist; and now demanding that colleges no longer ask about applicants’ felony, oops … judicially-involved .. pasts. 1984, anyone? I suggested all judicially-involved college students wait a year then go to Harvard with Malaria. Ugh.

      Very good on the weather break you had, the yard sale, son’s graduation….very, very good, AND excellent point about 0’s dear daughter…no she will not experience the dreadful consequences of her father’s edict.

    Good morning everyone.

    Morning Quote:

    The first socialists were not economists or technocrats. They were romantics and nostalgists.

    – Jonah Goldberg – How to cure the Millennials of Socialism
    – PS – Tennessee was named the most conservative state last year by the American Conservative Union – maybe we can import Millennials and deprogram them.

    – – – –

    This isn’t exactly Sunday reading. – Hillary’s past
    Jake Tapper on the case – Hillary’s Present
    Hillary’s America – Hillary’s future

    PPS – I would love to try one of these new Segways..or even the old Segways…or maybe the BOXX

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Congrats to Tennessee! Wow. Hold on to that achievement and title.

    • lysie says:

      We were at a wedding last night. I would say almost 100 Millennials attended. I didn’t see one Bernie or Hillary button. The thing that was noticeable was their attire. Yikes! Some of the high heels looked toe crunching.

      The young men’s attire made them look like Pinky Lee. They seemed to dance his way, too.

      They were all polite.

    • The Raven says:

      I read 100 millennials and for some reason – I thought big numbers — like 50 billion or 200 gazillion or something.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    ok…a couple of book reports:

    First, I am reading this now, and it is a short, timely, quick read: The Moon is Down, by John Steinbeck. He wrote this in fable-like fashion during WWII to describe totalitarianism. the book was copied, and copied and passed around thru out Europe during the war altho it was outlawed, so it was all underground. Read it now, and it will remind you of fresh threats to our liberty.

    Second: an audio book we listened to some weeks ago: An Army at Dawn, by Rick Atkinson. The book is an account of the Allied invasion of North Africa. The author brings so many details and individual stories to the history, it is simply amazing. The personalities are something…from Patton to Eisenhower to other officers, and plenty of enlisted men. What a job of research and writing! We can easily forget that before D-Day, there were other amphibious invasions…n. Africa and Sicily, and those were brutal, brutal. To read this book is to remember the sacrifices so many made.

    • The Raven says:

      Excellent. I’d like both of those.

      Alas, my list of unread books grows long. My wife and I have been toiling outside with this and that yard work for what seems forever. Then the tube after dinner. No time for reading. Need some rain.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I read a few pages and get so sleepy. That is my problem.Some of my favorite shows are ending for the year…so except for a movie now and then…that should help. Plus I can read and keep track of the baseball game.

    • lysie says:

      Thanks for the book reviews. I will check out my library.

  5. lysie says:

    Happy 27th birthday to our buddy , PB.

    I will make an apple and carrot cake for him. 😉

  6. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      I knew immediately that he was a fraud the first time I watched Barack Obama

      – Black author Kevin Jackson, Barack Obama is Lucky to be Black – Am. Thinker

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav. Excellent Kevin Jackson column. Thank you.

      I like this:

      “erase all the excuses and blacks would revert back to the time when we demanded success, excellence, education, morality, and so on from ourselves as the necessary ingredient of personal advancement.”

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Nope….he said awhile back that he would be loathe to turn over the office to someone he considers unworthy….You are not silly.
      For the time being however…the time between now and next January, I am most concerned about what else he has up his sleeve to impose unlawfully on us.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Excellent AT column.

      Good morning and thanks for start and breakfast…

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Homeschool for Freedom…Private Christian schools are good too.
      Charter schools, no, as they get gov. funds, and will be forced into this madness. I truly find this latest move just about the scariest, as the government forces the faithful to defy God, or else…in effect, we, and our poor children, grandchildren…have all become Little Sisters of the Poor. Can we stand up to the government? Our grandchildren are already homeschooled, and we will continue to make every effort to be as supportive as possible.

      Busy a.m. ahead. Back later with some book reviews…

    • lysie says:

      Homeschool, yes. However, it’s infuriating that while homeschooling taxes are collected. Why must we cater to smaller group of people? Why must children who are raised with values be subjected to such a worry? Perhaps, those children not agreeing will be looked as abnormal. The children today have plenty to deal with emotionally. Why subject them to another?
