Skip to comments.AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 1696) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
Posted on 09/12/2005 4:22:45 AM PDT by Chairman_December_19th_Society
We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!
Do not let the victims of the attacks on New York and Washington, nor the brave members of our Nation's military who have given their lives to protect our freedom, die in vain!!
Louisiana is preparing for an epic legal struggle as tens of thousands of homeowners there will soon discover their insurance policies won't cover rebuilding as floods are not covered. Moreover, Federal flood insurance only covers losses up to $250,000.
Otherwise, recovery from KATRINA continues.
For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.
A quick start today--the Federal budget is due to the Executive Office of the President today, so I'm going to be busy...
Good morning and thanks for starting us out on a new week.
I am on AOL. Last week my daughter came and used the computer and changed the font size in "preferences." Because she did this, my font on my e-mail and on the reply box when I type in posts on Free Republic is the smallest possible. It is very difficult to read. (In case some of you were wondering about my weird spelling errors lately, this is why. I can't even read the Spell Check corrections very well.) My husband had to have me put on my magnifying reading glasses yesterday to read HIS e-mail to him!
I cannot get the preferences to switch back. I have tried re-setting the font size, re-booting and re-setting it, etc. If anyone has a simple answer, I would appreciate it. Otherwise I will have to spend some time on the phone with AOL, which I do not look forward to. Thanks!
I think you can go to View at the top of the toolbar and click View, then Text Size.
I'm missing you this day.
That's not even logically consistent, but, sadly, predictable...
Last evening, elements of Troop 1550, Leesburg, VA, BSA conducted a Flag Retirement Ceremony in conjunction with a 9/11 Memorial at Crossroads Baptist Church in Leesburg.
The Four Scouts and Two Assistant Scout Masters from Troop 1550, together with a single Scout from Troop 982, also of Leesburg did a creditable job of conducting this important ceremony in the greatest of solemnity. In addition to helping with the disassembly of one flag, Da Kid, to his Old Man's pride, concluded the ceremony with a beautiful delivery of Taps.
As long as we can keep the Boy Scouts of America functioning with its traditional values, we will have a continuous source of fine future leaders.
We will never forget!
Give Mary credit...she is staying within the boundaries of her alternative reality!
And if you don't, then throw away your computer, it's taking up too much space...
I know many of us have been outraged the past 2 weeks over the calumny & race-baiting
Good morning to all, and thank you Chairman. Good luck with the Federal Budget...I'm sure it's a small, oh 10-20 page affair, right??!! /sarcasm
When Chris Wallace presented evidence that the Bush administration funded more levee strenghtening than the Clinton administration, Landrieu complained that Clinton had to deal with Reagan's deficits.
Hello? #1. There WAS a Bush administration in between Reagan and Clinton. #2. Clinton had huge surpluses. #3. The state of Louisiana mis-spent levee/flooding money on important things like bike paths.
Sadly, Wallace didn't think fast on his feet and let her get away with that particular piece of spin.
Well I thought everybody kept cash in their freezers Molly.
Good mornig, thanks for the link. I'll email it out later, ought to make some lib heads explode.
Thanks! I got it fixed thanks to your advice. Of course, now I have made the print VERY BIG, but I think I will leave it this way for a while. At least my husband can read his e-mails. I will mess with it again tonight, after he is done with the computer, to see if I can get it normal.
FYI--My piece is about a 1,600-page input.
I just posted this
Indians hit for cycle in first inning ESPN... he, he....
How are you?? Do you like where you are??
oh, sheesh....YOU go stand in the corner! LOL!
George W. Bush has cut precious little spending throughout his terms, it's one of the points of difference I have with the Pres. Taxes yes, spending no.
But the cross-eyed dithering masses will probably fall for it.
We are well, thank you and hope you are the same. I like it here a lot except for the mind-numbed liberals that are around. Mr. Prairie and I are pulling double duty being truth warriors. Hence the new tagline..
Question about your budget:
Is it divided into segments, one for each Agency and a Catch All? Or is it all in one big chunk?
Good Morning to all.
I deal with the information technology portion of the budget, and that is divided into major projects, but otherwise forwarded as one, very large, massive chunk.
I can understand that frustration, but you have to remember there has been some dollar shifting, with additional $ going to projects the Bushies consider to be more important.
There are programs out there who aren't getting increases. (Government employees get a 'step increase' whether they get an actual salary increase or not). Salary and Insurance expenses are charged out to each Agency, and if they don't get an increased appropriation, they need to come up with it out of their existing budget (not a bad thing, just pointing out their Administrators need to make spending adjustments to recoup enough money to fund those increases for employees).
I have a great deal of empathy for anyone involved in writing the federal budget.
On another thread was the BEST Katrina quote EVER (and I might not have it exactly right):
If Mary Landrieu were as good at bussing black people to safety as she was at bussing them to the polls, none of them would have died.
Thanks for the link, Molly! Hope you have a great day!
LOL - I have a great deal of empathy for anyone involved in paying the federal budget ;-)
Randy Roads (ERR America) said Nagin used "city buses because they had air conditioning and trained drivers".
City buses are mass transit, right?
The liberals can't even get their talking points right!
Not another dime from me for any of theiere books or magazines. And to the Republicans llike Newt who are piling on, no votes from me!
LA Times: 10-page Internet hit piece solely focusing on the Federal response to KATRINA, implying that if the Federal Government had acted differently, everything would have been fine. No discussion whatsoever about the painfully evident problems at the state and local (what about those school buses, mayor?--oh, forgot, it's the President's fault you didn't use them because of funding constraints on mass transit that doesn't even affect school bus use) level.
Darn George Bush, I found one of my chickens that went to the big coop in the sky and BUSH did it.
You need to take some time to re-coop. Bugging your daughter is a good way to pass the time while you rest up.
Like Kathleen Blanco, another grossly incompetent liberal hack, this disaster has revealed just how lacking the RAT party in Louisiana has become. Blanco is finished as a politician. If she isn't recalled, impeached, or forced to resign, she'll be thrown out in 2008 for the same reason Mary's political future is on life support: New Orleans will not be the factor in the next couple of election cycles that it usually is because it will take years to rebuild the city, and a lot of those "reliable voters" have left the state. Some will return, but many won't. Without New Orleans to offset the rest of the state, neither one has a chance.
As it is, I think Blank-0 has been reduced to irrelevancy already. Those of us who've known her over the years weren't surprised by the arrogant high-handedness she's put on display for the entire world to see the last couple of weeks. She kept it hidden behind the facade of the concerned hausfrau image she's maintained for her political career. Truth is, she's an arrogant, elitist, clueless snob. Her husband and her entire family are the same way. Louisiana voters prefer their pols to be populists in the mold of Huey Long or Edwin Edwards, or at least down to earth like Mike Foster. Blanco is neither a populist, nor is she from this planet. ;^)
By the way, here's a good one: More on Katrina [Ben Stein]
Was out freeping the Sheehan tour last night. They were sans Cindy, sadly, but their choice to hold a peace vigil at a mosque on 9/11 was just a little beyond the pale for me.
Will post more details once I'm back from class.
Miss Mary wouldn't let Chris Wallace talk. He tried to interupt quite a few times, but when she began talking there was absolutely NO stopping her. Sen. Vitter was given little chance to say anything as Miss Mary took up all the airwave time.
Good Morning All. I have some sort of bug...dang...
Oh, feel better soon !
(((lysie))) are you feeling better???
A little comic relief to ease the stress:
Four Religious Truths
1.. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's chosen people.
2.. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
3.. Protestants don't recognize the Pope
as the leader of the Christian world.
4.. Baptists don't recognize each other at Hooters
LOL, thanks for the laugh!
This is the first chance since the storm I've had to check in and let everyone know we made it through Katrina in good shape. We live 15 miles north of the coast, so we didn't have to contend with the tidal surge that devastated the coastal areas, but we did get about 10 hours or so of 130 - 160 mph winds. Got some minor damage to the roof, which was put on after hurricane George in '98, and lost a bunch of siding, but overall, we did good. We finally have power back as of 10 Sept, and are back at work helping to get Keesler ready to resume it's training mission. Have been talking to the folks here that lost everything and offering to have them stay with us until they can get back on their feet. We feel it's the least we can do.
I'll check in as time permits.
Our thought and prayers are with all who were affected by this storm.
And our most heartfelt thanks to all who are being so generous and helping all of us in our time of need. Words will never be able to express how much it means.
Yep, Ketchup, outdated at that.
That was a great Ben Stein article; thanks!
Prayer and blessings to you, and if you need ANYTHING, just let us know. We are delighted to hear you're okay!
Thanks! Hope you're feeling better SOON!
feel better soon
