America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 23, 2016 – May 27, 2016 Remember 9/11

Hello!

Closing arguments in the second “Freddy Gray” trial took place on Friday, and as this is a bench trial, the judge will deliver the verdict on Monday. Let’s hope it is one true and worthy of the facts in the case.

A police officer was shot and murdered in cold blood over the weekend in Massachusetts. The killer was shot and killed at the end of an hours long manhunt.

  1. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hi dear lysie….how you doing? Not too sore I hope from various activities? So far so good here…off to exercise and back later…outside stuff and inside stuff. Husband is busy with fellow Vets selling poppies this weekend. Hoping the weather holds, and he can cookout tonite.

      Morning Quote (Again !)

      -The Single Best Thing to Ever Happen to Jimmy Carter

      – Trump on Obama

    • lysie says:

      Ha! A good quote.

    • tillacum says:

      Thank you for breakfast. How are you today? Hopefully, feeling better.
      We’re expecting MORE rain today. It rained all day yesterday, it started soon after I checked my back yard. We’ve had so much rain, it has produced chiggers Just walking out to the garden, I picked some up and boy did they itch. Thank goodness for Clorax.

    • lysie says:

      I’m well, till. Thanks. Sorry about the rain. Take care.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, too much rain in TEXAS…good morning till
      Out and about…listening to radio in car, and alarm bells going off….while my husband and his fellow vets, and many, many others honor our war dead…0, abroad in Japan this Memorial Day is NOT. Waiting to hear further coverage and discussion, but it doesn’t sound good. He goes in thru the back door to apologize, but that’s what it is nonetheless.

    • edinva says:

      G’day, All …. lets just face it: there is NOTHING that Obama enjoys more than thumbing his nose at the American public (well, except possibly golf). He’s just a low, low life. And 1/20/17 at noon cannot come soon enough … don’t even want to think of the harm he will do during the interim.

      Today DH and I have our election official training that’s required every 3 years. That doesn’t include all the OTHER training that’s required every time they change equipment, which is every single election, including primaries, and in VA we have elections every single year! This may just be our last year doing this. I was not meant to be up and out about at 4am! What about my Beauty Rest?

      We are, incidentally, enjoying our 3rd straight day of beautiful sunshine and warm air. Not yet hot and muggy. It’s supposed to stay nice thru Sunday and I am hoping to go Arlington to watch the Rolling Thunder ride. It’s always such a stirring event.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hope you get to see the Rollin Thunder folks, and the weather is good for their parade ED

    • edinva says:

      Just watched the San Diego “protest” vs Trump. BIG police presence. Blankers eventually left.

      Also, read that our Gov McAwful looks like he’s in deep kimchee with the FBI and his Chinese donor who he swore just days ago he’d never met, could be sitting next to him and he wouldn’t know him (just a guy from the neighborhood!). Seems da gov brought Wang to Casa Clinton in DC, following which he immediately made a generous $500K donation to the family’s slush fund, and completed a $2M donation within a year. This followed his $60K donation to McAwful’s gov race. McA met Wang another time thru NC’s D gov who also benefited from the Chinese donor’s largesse. Oh, what fun we’re gonna have here in ole Virginny!!! Maybe NC, too!!!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      McAwful definitely in trouble…thanks for the new info…

    Morning Quotes:

    Perhaps, one of the most important accomplishments of my administration has been minding my own business
    -President Calvin Coolidge

    …in order to be effective a doctrine must not be understood, but has to be believed in. We can be absolutely certain only about things we do not understand
    -Eric Hoffer in “The True Believer”

    Only people not being able to find comfort in their own mind seek to silence others.
    – Per Bylund

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Perfect…and that last one reminds me of an observation about Lefties, or confused Rs, for that matter, like John McCain and his campaign reform advocacy…the personal becomes the political with them…whatever bothers them personally has to be taken into the political arena. Thanks Raven.
      I miss ol’ Cal…HA! I guess I can say that in this way: I miss that I can’t remember him as President.

    • lysie says:

      Excellent quotes, Rav, Thank you.

      Morning, Molly.

  3. The Raven says:

    >>>>>If Gender is Fluid What about Race and Age? Or maybe the earth itself? Check this out

    You know, this fall I’m going to identify as a Democrat and vote twice.

  4. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      I was reading this article on Weiner and kept thinking of Bill Clinton.

      So, everyone, what are your plans for the weekend? Here, we are having family over for some BBQ and maybe a boat ride if I get her seaworthy in time

      Morning quote:

      “We’re going to begin with that breaking news we told you about at the top, right now out of Pennsylvania, Bill Clinton is set to arrive at a suburban—excuse me, Bill Cosby is set to arrive at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse any moment now for a key hearing in his criminal sex assault case.”

      MSNBC host Steve Kornacki confusing former President Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby

    • lysie says:

      Ack! I opened the link and first thing I saw was Weiner’s profile. Now I can’t get it out of my head. LOL

    • lysie says:

      Gee, I wonder why.??

      Sounds like you are ready for some fun.

      How are you this morning? The heat is coming our way along with T-storms.

    • lysie says:

      Public-urination? Sure, why not? What could possibly go wrong?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning and thank you lysie…getting my Bennett podcast fix. He revealed in the second podcast…from about the first week in May …that mid April he unexpectedly needed surgery…5 hours of cancer removing surgery. He is slowly recovering, and the prognosis is good, but…a concern for sure.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      The good news….I will have quite a display of iris this spring….guess I remembered to fertilize them late last summer.

      The bad news…looks like we will have to spend $$$$ on chimney repair…getting estimates…

    • lysie says:

      Dang about the chimney.

    • edinva says:

      lysie, silver lining on the chimney: it’s not Fall, so probably nowhere near as expensive as it’d be next October when those workers will be busier vs Spring when they NEED work.

    • lysie says:

      Good call, ed.

  5. The Raven says:

    Morning quote:

    “Right, black folk having been voting democrat for the last 70 years and we don’t have s**t to show for it.”

    – rapper Azealia Banks quoted by Alicia Cohen in her article Black Lives Do Matter But Not To Leftists

  6. The Raven says:

    Not sure how the IG report socks it to Hillary. Here’s the conclusion:

    Longstanding, systemic weaknesses related to electronic records and communications have existed within the Office of the Secretary that go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State. OIG recognizes that technology and Department policy have evolved considerably since Secretary Albright’s tenure began in 1997. Nevertheless, the Department generally and the Office of the Secretary in particular have been slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications, particularly as those risks pertain to its most senior leadership. OIG expects that its recommendations will move the Department steps closer to meaningfully addressing these risks

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  8. The Raven says:

    My new gravatar on display

    • lysie says:

      Sure would be nice. Alas, it will magically vanish.

      Greg got two free truck loads of mulch and spread it around our trees and flower beds,

      I think my leg is almost back to normal.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Free truck loads? Wow, that is great…also about your leg….more garden work today…just a few more hours and it’ll all be done.

    • Jemian says:

      I am very glad your leg is improving. As has been said, growing old ain’t for sissies. I saw a chart the other day which had a movable scale. Move the line to your age and it shows you an approximation as to how many in the US are older or younger than you. Was it here that I saw that scale?

      Anyway, 81% of the US is younger than me. 19%, perforce are older. That, to me, is a weird statistic. There seems to be more older people than that!

      Went to dinner with my dad and steps tonight. I lost the battle for the check. How hard is it appropriate to fight for it? I won the argument earlier this spring with my son.

    • edinva says:

      Jemian, if it makes you feel better, I’m in the 19% !!

    • The Raven says:

      I saw that with a political scale. You move the pointer to who you voted for. For instance if you voted for Obama than 55% of the country is as dumb as you are.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      ED I have some Clark’s …love them…almost bought a pair yesterday…Riekers are also good, soooo comfortable, and you can find them on sale online. Read the reviews, too. That is a plus to online shopping.

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      That decline in public trust link highlights what I’ve been telling my wife for a while now. That the system won’t work if one party follows the rules and the other party doesn’t. And if everyone (er, I mean – non Democrats) starts breaking the law and cheating, that’s when the Dems send the brownshirts.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Remember how under Reagan, trust in government grew??

      And Dems….underneath their lies is this operating theory: we can’t be trusted to govern ourselves. It ‘s true….humans are flawed creatures…but when the government & its bureaucrats grows too large, those accompanying flaws grow too: tyranny, yes….just as our Founding FATHERS predicted…. well what do you know!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks lysie..to the gym, then out into the garden beds…

    • The Raven says:

      Molly…I’m not sure we can be trusted to vote either. The Progressives of the past rearranged our Founding Father’s brilliant system.

      The original Constitution provided the solution. The only federal politician the voter could place into power was the House Representative. The Senate was chosen by State Legislatures (twice removed from the voter) and the President chosen by the electoral college (once removed from the voter). And the Supreme Court was an appointment as well. So the “Representative” government with its professional voters was replaced with the populist voter and targeted propaganda. According to the WSJ today, 38% of today’s voters could not pass the naturalization test administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. It consists of 10 questions randomly chosen from a list of 100; applicants for citizenship must answer at least six of them correctly.

    • edinva says:

      G’day, all
      Yes !!! A glorious, warm sunny day here, too!

      Don’t know if I mentioned a few weeks ago my son was at one of his final classes at G. Mason U, car parked safely in the garage. Safely, except for the poor lady driving a mega-SUV who swiped said car. She left a note, a campus police report, her phone number, insurance policy number, etc. How often does that happen? So today it was off to the body repair shop, and car rental … all covered by her insurance. I felt badly for her. She should just buy a normal size car. We had an Expedition and happiest day of my life was the day we sold it!

      WA state primary today. Gee, I wonder who’ll win? I heard there were some shenanigans over the w/e with insiders till going for Cruz. Go figure. There are now 44 delegates at stake. I wonder if that will get DJT beyond the 1237? No D primary there. Then in 2 weeks the entire primary season is over.

      Did you all read about the veterans protest @ Trump Tower? After many denials, the organizers finally fessed up .. yeah, it was organized by the Clinton Campaign. Gotta love it. Seriously, is anyone surprised???

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That was an honest lady…some good news about that….looking for it where we find it, right?

      Didn’t know that about the protesters, thank ED

      Back from trip to the shoe store, now back to the gardens….I found just what I wanted/needed at the store, too….I figure you’d want to know that. HA! Mission accomplished for my hard to fit feet and picky nature….

    • edinva says:

      Molly I am one who TOTALLY appreciates having just the right shoes! When I was young it was important that the shoes went perfectly with the outfit. Now they have to go perfectly with my feet!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      It helps that these days, the comfortable shoes for us older ladies also have more style than they used to…the olden days…YIKES!

    • edinva says:

      So true! I have a pair of Clark’s that I just LOVE, more comfy than slippers, and I am forever getting compliments on them, how nice they look, etc. To be honest, I don’t remember my mother ever wearing old lady shoes, or even old lady clothes. She dressed every day, casual in her final years, but always looked nice. hahaha, more than I can say!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      You are right…under the Progressives, we have become dangerously ignorant voters

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      So…..Bernie has managed to get a bunch of Lefties on the Dem platform committee….

  10. The Raven says:

    Democrats in the news:

    Obama did this on purpose. His way of screwing with the Christians

    Wicked witch

    And….there’s this

    Terry McCauliffe under FBI eye

  11. edinva says:

    Oh, in other news today, Obama lifted the embargo vs. Vietnam so he can sell them weapons. There is no bottom for him, and 7.5 months to go!!!

  12. edinva says:

    Not guilty!! How great. Imagine being a cop, putting your life on the line every single day you show up for work, having to deal with the absolute dregs of humanity, then face the emotional and psychological trauma, to yourself AND your family, of being charged with a crime for doing your job? I sure hope he countersues, but if he does and collects, it won’t be against the individuals who brought this hell down on him, but the city … but then again, it was the resident of the city who placed those people in office.

    Good morning! (there’s sun out here today but don’t tell anyone)

  13. Molly Pitcher says:

    Officer Nero NOT Guilty please join me in a prayer of thanks for this outcome…some good news to appreciate.

  14. lysie says:

    Sad situation in Venezuela. “Ain’t” Socialism grand??? /S

    • tillacum says:

      It is grand for the leaders. Look where their president is “visiting. Remember how well the leaders in the USSR lived, how well the leaders in china live? Yep socialism is grand, when one is top dog. I do not understand people believing the promises Sanders and shrillery are putting out.

  15. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the new weekly thread, Molly.

    • The Raven says:

      I’ll take one of those

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning….I’m trying to go more carb-less, but not this morning. Thank you lysie! One of my cousins, doing no carb, has lost 3 inches around his waist, but no pounds….we were trying to figure that one out…

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav. How are things?

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly. That’s seems stange. I always thought an inch was about 10 pounds.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Exactly….the diet is definitely no carb…5 eggs in the a.m. …lots of protein and certain vegetables…as snacks too.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh there was some “wonderful” news out of the administration this weekend past…did you hear about the new, improved food labels which might not be that exactly…
      And how about the EPA …new ethanol regs which will blow up small engines…none of those have any of those, right??!! Good grief…

    • lysie says:

      Ack! EPA?? Idiots.

      We have a gas station (Fastrac) that carries ethanol free regular gas that we use for small engines. It cost a bit more, but worth it.

    • The Raven says:

      Molly….I was reading the New Atkins book and there was a section on weighing. It isn’t very accurate and can go up & down – especially if you do it daily. Better to weigh every week instead.
      When the docs wanted my mother weighed daily…they specified – first thing in the morning after the bathroom visit and before eating/drinking. I was amazed how consistent it was when she did that.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks …yes, inconsistent weighing…good point. I will see him again in July, and see what the situation is…OH! Just remembered seeing this…near the end of the evening, I saw him return to his table with a nice-sized piece of wedding cake. Also seeing this, his uncle and I looked at each other and laughed.

    • The Raven says:

      We live on a lake and ALL nearby gas stations carry ethanol free gas for the boats. I use it for all small engines as well as the boat.

      Last year I had to get one of the engines repaired. It had a tank full of ethanol fuel from the dealer when I bought it and it gummed up over the winter – even with the additive for storage.

    • lysie says:

      Ethanol for small engines is like eating pork fat for humans. 🙂

    • tillacum says:

      I’ll have one too with a cuppa.
      Beautiful day in central Texas.

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, till. Enjoy your day. It looks like we are going to have a nice day, too.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good a.m. till…everyone in good mood cause the weather is so nice. Finally.
