America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant –June 24, 2019 – June 28, 2019 Remember 9/11

Hello!

AOC has been offered a private tour of Auschwitz. Let’s see if she accepts what would presumably be an eye-opening, mind- expanding experience for her.

And Hillary! has swung into action and rhetoric on behalf of the children in the Southern border detention camps. Will anyone be paying attention?

It’s now known that U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computer systems on Thursday. Is this the future of warfare? If so, how should we prepare for it?

    TGIF!! Sorry I have not been around. Very busy. Hope all of you are well.

  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning all…..long day of travel yesterday to Illinois, a state I do not like to visit as it is so messed up.

    • Jemian says:

      So, Molly, are you now back in your home state?

      The youngest is on the road with her kids to spend a week with us. Her birthday is Sunday and her daughter wants to give her mom a party. So, we’re having a cookout. Hamburgers on hubby’s new grill. I’m baking a large birthday cookie tomorrow and C will help decorate it on Sunday afternoon. Balloons and dancing. Now, C has it in her mind that we must hide and shout “surprise” when the youngest comes in. Only the youngest is the one who informed me of C’s wishes. Also, the invitation was addressed to the youngest. No surprise now! Anyway, C was super excited when she saw that HER VERY OWN NAME was listed as a hostess.

      Hubby and I are playing in a Fourth of July concert tonight. Two of the numbers seem to me to be just notes thrown onto a page and call it music. But even those are nice sounding. Other things we’re playing include “Shenandoah”, “Across the Great Plains” (which is a tribute to the Pony Express), “Fantasy on Yankee Doodle”, “A Tribute to Gershwin”, and “Jersey Boys”. Of course, we’re playing “The Thunderer,” “Stars and Stripes Forever”, and “The Star-Spangled Banner.” I’ve really enjoyed playing with this group. Oh, and hubby has a bunch of solos. He is a very good sax player.

    • lysie says:

      Sounds like fun is in store for you , Jem. Enjoy.

    • Jemian says:

      In memory of Jim Pike, who just passed away,

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Great musical selections Jemian…..have fun!

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    Mueller will testify before Congress July 17 what a piece of work he is. Well, it might not turn out as well as the Dems hope

    • edinva says:

      Molly, I can’t even imagine Mueller’s testimony working out well for the D’s even tho he will go as far as he can to help them. I think the Rs on the committee will be loaded for bear.

    • The Raven says:

      The Dems need to extract an impeachable offense from him. No matter what he says, they will declare victory. I think the full front attacks the Dems have planned for Trump in 2020 (state attorneys, prosecutors, impeachment, voter fraud, etc) will make their fake Russian attacks look like a walk in the park. Every Dem who is aware of the strategy is so impressed, they run for president themselves.

      PS: Is it a liberal trick to use “Congress” instead of the “House?” I noticed the use of Congress is pretty widespread on this.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I’m thinking the Rs will have plenty of ammunition, yes ED
      Raven...The two terms do seem to be used interchangeably.

      So did anyone watch the debate last night? I could have, since the played an afternoon game, but I didn’t take advantage of the “opportunity”.

    • The Raven says:

      I didn’t watch the debate. What happened? Paying off mortgages? Credit Cards? Car loans? Home improvement loans? Free IRA retirement accounts? Free vacations?

      This vote buying can get expensive. Probably cheaper to use Fusion GPS again.

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  6. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hello, hello! Thanks for breakfast . The plan for the day, or at least one plan…is shopping for some new clothes for my husband. He wore out his summer suit finally some time ago, and since he’s retired, didn’t replace it. Today we are going to do something about it. Unfortunately the precipitating cause is that he’s been going to too many funerals lately & feeling the loss of a good suit to wear.

    • The Raven says:

      Last time I was at a funeral, the mourners outside of immediate family were dressed casual.

    • edinva says:

      Dressing casually for a funeral may be a regional thing … around here everyone wears their best “Sunday Go to Meeting” outfits. I would imagine in a retirement community few people still have ‘dress up’ clothes. If I moved to one of those, I’d keep one nice outfit that could be dressed up or down for weddings, funerals or other events. Of course, I doubt that either the deceased nor God would much care what mourners wore!

    • Jemian says:

      It may be a regional thing, and it may be a class thing (and this is where the snob in me comes out, sorry). My step-mother passed away in late January. She was in a separate “class” of people. This is seen in different activities, ways of talking, etc. Although both sides of the family are from the south, Dad’s side dressed up in Sunday clothes and we all wore various shades of black. Her daughter and son-in-law wore black and dressed very much like we did, the rest of the family was dressed casually, in all sorts of colors with some people in jeans and tee shirts. The lines were very visible. The thing is, both sides were there to mourn the passing of a human being and to give honor to her life. We just did it differently.

    • Jemian says:

      And Ed, it may be just the way I was raised, I keep a black dress on hand always (in every country) just in case I need to go to a funeral.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Well, I stirred up some comments, didn’t I?
      It’s several things….my husband goes to funerals of fellow vets, so it is showing respect for them he believes, and also a lot of former professional colleagues, and the law is one profession that still dresses up, so to speak. Then there are old friends from church, etc..
      Regional, too, yes, that’s true.
      Oh! We found the suit but learned that suit buying these days is pretty much right off the rack. No waiting for alterations…

    • The Raven says:

      I think it is a spin – off from corporate America shedding the suit in the 90’s. Heaven’s – I used to dress up to fly on a plane.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes! How about watching old baseball film , and the men in the stands are wearing suits, ties, and hats ?

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the new thread Molly. Mopping Monday. Back later.

  8. edinva says:

    G’day all ….
    Can anyone shut Hillary TF up ??? Honestly, it’s clear no one loves her enough to get her muzzled. So she continues to make an a$$ of herself. Rather pathetic to have such a public mental breakdown.

    I am sick of the BS about the children and migrants’ treatment at the border. Is it really any worse than the caravans they chose to take to get to those detention centers? I am heartless at this point. Just don’t care.

    Saturday I had a personal tour of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (formerly the Old Executive Office Bldg) where most of the White House staff work. It’s a HUGE (or yuuuuuge, if you prefer) building on the WH campus. Before the Pentagon was built it was the largest office building in the US, if not the world. It used to house the Navy, the War Dept and State Dept … till the 1930’s when the govt started its grown towards today’s massive size. Often considered ugly (HST said it was “the greatest monstrosity in America”) – it’s French 2nd Empire style, and very very different from all the Federalist type buildings in DC. Anyway, the interior is fascinating. Just fascinating. And as you can imagine, so much history took place there! I must have driven past the building a million times and was only inside once, and that for a specific meeting. This time we got the full tour with a friend’s son who works there. Fantastic. Then, small world that this town is, we went X the driveway to the entrance to the West Wing and the first person I saw was the young man who runs the dept where I volunteer. His in-laws are visiting from Germany so he’s taking them to all the hot spots in town.

    In all, it was a busy weekend and not one minute of news did I see except the quick presser POTUS held on his way to Marine One before flying off to Camp David. Sure is nice to take a news break now and again.

    Tomorrow we should hear the SCOTUS decision on the citizenship question on the census … apparently they may defer because of some notes of a now-deceased GOP operative that doesn’t bode well for the Administration… we’ll have to see/hear.

    Oh, and tomorrow, at long last, I am starting the Silver Sneakers program at the gym .. the program I signed up for three weeks ago .. yeah, that one.

    • The Raven says:

      Speaking of SCOTUS…..Molly – did hubby comment on the U of Houston confiscation of copyrighted material ? I believe yesterday’s Knick v. Township of Scott partially addresses it.

      And AOC has the answer to immigration…..it is what now?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Very good ED I feel like I took that tour too! Thanks you. I’m interested in when the building was built…do you remember that? Good luck with your gym program…

    • edinva says:

      Molly, wiki actually has some good info on the EEOB: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisenhower_Executive_Office_Building

      Well, one more day of procrastination for the gym. I’d forgotten that the medical supply company messed up scheduling pick up of DH’s wheelchair all last week, so they were to call this am and give a time frame (11a-2p; he got her around 1:30 of course, consuming most of my day, but at least it’s outta here). So now the gym program starts tomorrow.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      It is a pretty distinctive building…not fitting very much with the WH architectural style….Anyway, I found out it was built in 1871 and additions later…
