America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- May 30, 2016 – June 3, 2016 Remember 9/11

Memorial Day Greetings!

Sadly, several monuments honoring our veterans and war dead have been vandalized across the country. It is another sign of our decaying culture.

And there is one lucky small child this evening in Cincinnati. He was rescued from a gorilla at the zoo there. Now the gorilla was in his habitat and had to be shot. The child had somehow fallen into a place he shouldn’t have been, so there is more to be known about this incident.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend and be safe!

    Years ago, I was at a hotdog stand in Atlanta’s airport trying unsuccessfully to “pump” mustard out of the stainless steel container when all of a sudden it exploded and got mustard all over my shirt. I turned around to warn the next person in line who turned out to be Mohammed Ali. He just stared at me with not even a smile. He ended up drawing a small crowd after picking up a small child to the delight of the girl’s mother (as others started yelling “It’s Mohammed Ali!! He’s here!”). I felt like a child next to him. I’m 6’1″ and was amazed how BIG he looked in person.

    The time was after he quit boxing but before the Parkinson’s started his decline.

    Rest in peace, Mohammed.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Very, very good! And “forever victims” is not a founding principle….but we already know what the Left thinks of the Founders….

    • lysie says:

      Good for Lloyd and Snoop. That is the way I feel about today’s woman’s movement. I don’t need special treatment. It weakens me. I’m not a victim. I do my best and in doing so I’m stronger than those who cry “it’s not fair”.

    • tillacum says:

      The democrat party, movie industry, entertainment industry, the mass media, politicians, all want Blacks to fancy themselves “put upon” and inferior to the rest of Americans. I’ve
      seen universities do the same thing to Blacks. And the women’s movement is also a group of “educators”, politicians and the mass media trying the same thing. Both areas of inferiority pushers to put themselves above those who believe such junk.

      Morning quote:

      We easily get into trouble if our defense of free speech is premised on whether it contributes to truth-seeking or not, or whether it serves democracy or not, whether it is blasphemous or not, whether it offends or not, whether it undermines the war effort or not or, whether it is a threat to the common good or not—all these arguments are used every day to silence people all around the world.
      … No politician or public opinion should have the power through criminalization and bans to hide opinions and speech from us, implying that we are not able to handle it in a reasonable and responsible way. It takes away our dignity because it is based on the assumption that we cannot be trusted to listen to certain kinds of speech. … free men should not be free to choose unfreedom for others.

      Today is laundry day. We don’t have a washer or dryer at the camp so there are mounds and mounds to do. Actually, I kind of enjoy doing it.

    • edinva says:

      Can’t miss out on Donut Day!! My sons have a fav shop in Richmond (VA) that has blessedly opened an outlet in Alexandria (VA) .. wonder what they will offer? Their basic donut (well, nothing ‘basic’ about ’em) runs @ $2. They are worth it, every last penny, every last calorie, and every last carb! I have to use absolute self-discipline to drive by there and not stop in for a visit, and maybe purchase.

      Today is babysitting day … so I am having a wonderful time of it. Miss Z is taking her mid-day siesta (oh, to be a baby again!) She will be joining her parents next month on a vacay to Japan. Her mom was an English teacher there at a little village in the mountains 4 hours NW of Tokyo (In fact, in Fukushima province that no one ever heard of before the tsunami/nuclear reactor problem. Alas her village is way inland, in the mts, vs on the ocean so it was relatively unaffected). They are timing it to be there for a festival that village has hosted for EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS!!! Talk about tradition. Z’s mom participated in the village festival as a Buddhist bride**, very much the honor for anyone much less a non-Japanese, before leaving to return to the USA 10 years ago. So a happy, fun homecoming it will be as she visits with DH and Z.
      ** Molly, if I can find a pic of DD at the festival, I’ll email to you.

      Guess who just woke up ??? Later…

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Have fun with baby Z. Fascinating to read about your daughter’s teaching experience. How were the living conditions? I taught for awhile…a little English class in a private school outside of Seoul…it was pretty primitive…a very poor school, and I was NO teacher. Bless their hearts, those students and the man who had organized the school.

    • edinva says:

      [I apologize for TMI here .. but wanted to respond to Molly’s query about my DD’s living experience in Japan]
      Molly, as you probably know from your Seoul experience, English is the lingua franca (so to speak) throughout Asia. At some point, the Japanese realized their English was not up to snuff. So the Japanese government started the Japanese Exchange & Teaching Program (JET). Each year they recruit @ 2000 recent college grads from around the English-speaking world to go to Japan to teach English in their public schools. It begins with maybe one class a week in 3rd grade, then builds up through their public school experience.
      The JET recruits are considered ‘representatives’ for their home country. The application process (at least here) once the applicants get past the first round, is an in person interview at the Japanese Embassy, that includes a rep from the U.S. State Dept. and one from the Japanese Embassy as well as (usually) an American who’s done the JET program, and I don’t know who else.
      Once selected for the program, the JETS are assigned a town or city, and their contract is with that city. The base salary is comparable to starting salary for a new college grad in the States. Beyond the basic income, work time requirements, etc., the benes change. DD was lucky to be placed in a town that subsidized 2/3 of her rent, and provided a car, for which they charged her a $20/mo fuel fee. They took care of all auto expenses, insurance, repairs, and petrol. BUT she could not drive it beyond the border of her prefecture (for insurance purposes). The people in her village could not have treated her any better. The JET experiences, from what I gather, run the gamut depending on the community (and, to some extent I would imagine, the JET).
      For DD it was a mix of things. She chose to go because she didn’t know what she really wanted to do after she graduated (undergrad), and wanted to take time to sort it out. And, she wanted to travel, but even tho at the time she was also being recruited for the Peace Corps, she thought this suited her better because it was only a 1 year commitment (renewable up to 3 years) vs. Peace Corps that’s 2+ years. She ended up in Japan for 2 years, but didn’t want to make that commitment before going there.
      She had her own apartment, very Japanese, somewhat modern. Another JET lived in her small apt building, so she had one English-speaking neighbor. Otherwise, there was no one else in the village who spoke English as their first language. Her neighbor had already done Peace Corps and other teaching positions throughout Asia, so she was considerably older (35!!) so there was an age gap. DD was 22 when she went. On weekends, JETS from several nearby towns would get together for their social life. But it was a pretty solitary and often lonely in between. I think she learned a LOT about emotional independence there. Several families ‘adopted’ her so she did have families she could spend time with, some of whom had kids her age, but half of them lived in Tokyo, 4 hours away. She was able to exchange language lessons with an adult so she was getting Japanese and the woman was receiving English lessons. She also bartered English lessons for ski lessons (the town is a popular ski resort). And cooking, as I recall. So there was a LOT to be said in favor of the experience. The day she left, taking the train from her town to Tokyo, half the village came out to bid her adieu, and she’d been feted with luncheons, dinners and miscellaneous receptions in her final weeks. That’s the kind of village she was sent to … very warm, open, welcoming. Obviously that’s not true of all of Japan. And that’s a wrap!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wow, that was pretty cool then for your daughter…yes, the Asians valued learning English. that’s why that poor, poor school I wrote about recruited me to spend a few hours per week with them. Thanks for report. She had a wonderful time then, and no wonder she wants to return!

    • lysie says:

      Ed , give Miss Z a huge from me.

      How wonderful they are all going to Japan for a family vacation! Sounds like they will be busy enjoying all the “events”. 🙂

  10. The Raven says:

    Morning all.

    Ready for a rant?

    Over the weekend, I read an article “The Liberal Blind Spot“ by Nicholas Kristof in the NY Times which bemoans liberals stereotyping and discrimination of conservatives as a form of bigotry and calls on his fellow liberals to back off.

    My first reaction was “What took you so long” and then after some thought realized that the liberal author, Kristof, does’t get it either. He addresses some conservative stereotypes as if he believes they are true. He brings up none of the conservative arguments against large, tyrannical government or for originalist jurists, the 9th & 10th Amendments, or liberty and freedom for markets and people.

    A quick read of the comments and you see the indoctrination of liberal propaganda. Conservatives are insulted as bigots, idiots, or religious fanatics or not scientific or rich, greedy, selfish, white capitalists.

    So my take is that the libs don’t have a clue as to what a conservative is or stands for. Mark Levin says it is too hard to explain and many of us give up too early. What is left to define us, when we give up, is liberal propaganda. That is what explains conservatives today, liberal propaganda. You tell a liberal where you stand and they look at you with distain. Defective !!!

    I recently saw a pollster stating that over 80% of Bernie Sanders supporters couldn’t accurately define socialism. I’d wager that a similar poll asking progressives to define conservatism would get a correct answer percentage close to zero. Too bad, ’cause we’re right and they’re wrong.

    Sooooooooo … after all that ranting, my question is…..”Fifty years from now, will liberals look back at abortion the way they now look back on eugenics (was Margaret Sanger wrong on both) ?”

    • lysie says:

      Good morning , Rav. Your rant is justified and accurate.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh I saw that article and wondered about reading it….now my reservations, I know, were justified…thank you for doing that…it does seem to be impossible to get thru to such wall of indoctrination and ignorance. as for your last question…the Left might not support eugenics now, but Margaret Sanger is still fine with them, and probably always will be. And I question that the Left has discarded eugenics, come to think of it…..

  11. Prairie says:

    hello everybody, checking in briefly. Hope everybody had a good Memorial Day weekend. It’s hard, but necessary to remember and honor our fallen veterans.

    We are leaving in the AM to attend a music festival for a few days. I’ll try to check in if able, but may have to head into next week before I’m back. It’s already almost June….the summer will be gone before we know it!

  12. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning everyone…did you notice? There was no Google doodle yesterday, till later in the day when this was noticed, and a small flag and yellow ribbon was posted. Wow, they are sure on a mission, aren’t they with those doodles…

  13. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Back from camp. The internet went out Sat. night.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yummy! Glad you are back, and hope your weekend was relaxing away from the internet!

    • lysie says:

      It was fun, but good to be back.

      Greg caught tons of fish. Some of our friends came to visit to fish, too..

    • edinva says:

      lysie, thanks for the beautiful, summery breakfast!

      Sometimes losing internet is a good thing … to totally get away from it all. We’ve become such addicts. Happy for you to have gotten out, enjoyed a break from your everyday, and now lots and lots of fish. Not a bad weekend, eh?

    • lysie says:

      Thanks, ed. We has a nice few days.

      When we arrived home we couldn’t believe how fast the grass grew.

  14. Molly Pitcher says:

    This is a perfect piece for a day of remembrance.

  15. edinva says:

    This is a holiday that I find hard to enjoy … it’s about those who died fighting for us, so it’s sad for those who died, and for their families and friends whose lives will never be the same. It’s wonderful that the men who returned unthanked from VietNam, and others, honor the dead and the MIA with their Rolling Thunder ride.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes all honor to those who gave so much, and their families. It’s true: we celebrate the country which values liberty, and there is regret that for some this came with a dear cost.
      Good morning ED and till.
      And thanks for the DC Metro update, too!

    • lysie says:

      Memorial Day to me is what my Gramp taught me. Not a day to “celebrate” , but a day to honor , respect and remember. Thank you Gramp.

    To our Vets…Thanks Guys and Gals.
