AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 1797) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
Various News Sources and FReepers | December 22, 2005 | All of Us

Posted on 12/22/2005 4:27:55 PM PST by Chairman_December_19th_Society

We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!

Good evening!!

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!!

TWU Local 100 agreed to go back to work in New York, ending the illegal transit strike there. Two million dollars worth of fines, pending appeal to a New York State Appellate Court, has been levied against the union local, and Gov. Pataki has said they will not be waived. No change in the negotiating position of either the union local or the City of New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority has occurred, and there exists the possibility of another walkout.

Saddam at his trial indicated the United States is "the number one liar in the world." The trial has been adjourned until January 24, 2006. In other words, so far, there have been four or five court days and weeks upon weeks of nothing.

And President Bush stated "it's been a good year for the American people."

For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Caue, the Chairman.

Sorry for the delay in reply. I have been finishing the last batch of cookies, which I am going to hide from my husband until tomorrow night.

You know what's so puzzling to me? When Lott left I thought Frist was a better choice because I thought as a heart surgeon he would have had more moxie. He is the first surgeon I have ever heard of who is wishy-washy.

I don't know that Lott would have done a better job. Given his performance with the first two years of President Bush's administration (power sharing, missing the Jeffords defection) I am not so sure about him, either.

I am so disgusted with the Senate right now that I can't make a decent judgement about any of them.

It was supposed to get warmer here starting yesterday too but that never materialized. That was some bad storm they had in your son's area; lots of accidents and power outtages. Hope he has a cell phone plan because otherwise he's paying a fortune for any calls he makes.

We have a cell but use it very sparingly (like maybe 20 calls a year). One day I was leaving the mall from shopping for Christmas and every single person who walked in the door, a mad rush, was talking on a cell phone. I don't get the attraction to them myself.

Good morning sweetie. After a rather strange dinner, Mr. P implored me to make a spice cake. I had no frosting in the house so improvised using an internet recipe and it came out quite good. Although frosting cakes is not my specialty and the cake looks rather ravaged.

That businessmen rely on cell phones is understandable, but the housewives who use them, sometimes within minutes of leaving their home where they have a land line, is mystifying to me. We really like peace and quiet too much to want to be in constant contact via cell phone, I guess, Two Thirds.

And you be careful on that bike!

AH! I had totally forgotten about the Jayhawker ties we have. Dear kassie, I ride almost every morning in MUCH colder weather than this BALMY 39 degrees, to the bus. This morning's ride was to run an errand and to wish my bus driver Merry Christmas, since I won't see him until next year.

Good Morning!

the Rats will take credit for any reduction in troops in Iraq. It's all they have - to steal ideas from the administration.

And they think they are going in 2006?

I often think that's the reason they are throwing everything at this Administration, in hopes that something will stick, giving them leverage in the next election.

When you lie, eventually it all catches up. Perhaps that's why they are so desperate to say anything these days.

Their newest lie and amnesia regarding the NSA spying matter has started to amuse me. Ask the average American if they care about this and I'll bet that 70% of them not only don't care but expect the president to use all the powers of his office to do whatever is necessary to protect the country.

My daughter thinks I'm nuts for not wanting one.:)

.....and I have to admit, there are times....car trouble, etc.,when it would be advantageous.

But I spend enough time on the phone when I'm home. When I leave the house I prefer to concentrate on other things.

I actually borrowed Ev's cell when he was off at basic & AIT.....I think I used it twice; both times to tell my daughter I had arrived at her apt. building to pick her up.

Could've walked up the steps & gotten a little exercise instead.;^)

Our driveway right now is a skating rink, as are the side streets.

The main roads have been salted/sanded so they are okay.

I see that all the schools are closed.....(Green Bay/De Pere/Howard/Ashwaubenon districts are off today anyway.)

Oh, kassie.....He did.....it was heart wrenching...I have to tell you this story.........he told me some time ago that his brother was dying of cancer. I think he said his brother was a soldier in WW2, (like my Dad), when he told me about his brother's (who is in his 80's) cancer. My bus driver is in his seventies and drives for extra money.

When I arrived at the bus where he was starting his route, he was very cordial (we are talking the greatest generation here), and then he asked if I remembered that he had told me about his brother having cancer. I said yes as a matter of fact I was thinking about his brother yesterday and even this morning. Well, he told me that his brother died yesterday. Then he told me that he just simply fell asleep with his family around him, and what better way for one to go than that, and he was relieved that his brother's suffering was over. I have to stop now and recompose myself. I was just going down there to wish this sweet man a Merry Christmas...

Re cell phones

I have one that I seldom use...but my children insist that I have it for emergencies: when lines go down here (rural area) as they often do during the winter or when a driver wrecks against a telephone pole some distance away...they also insist that I carry it w/me in case I fall or something outside and need help. It makes sense, I guess.

Yesterday, I was driving in heavy traffic and the darn phone in my purse started ringing....I don't drive and talk on the phone at the same time, so I had to pull into a store parking lot to take the call.

Tell me if I've got this right about the current status of the Patriot Act........since the House voted for a 1-month extension yesterday and the Senate voted for a 6-month extension and then went home, there must be a reconciliation between the 2 for the Patriot Act to remain in force, but it is against the rules for such action to take place because the Senate has already stopped meeting.

So my question is what is going to happen to the Patriot Act come Dec. 31 w/no resolution? Looks to me like both houses will HAVE TO cut their Christmas vacation short...tough LOL...in order to provide protection for this country. Is this the corrct "take"?

I will compute it for you. They have ALWAYS been that far left. They have just been faking any inkling to the right out of desperation to do ANYTHING to get votes. Easy calculation. I didn't even have to get out my calculus book and use differential equations, Bessel Functions, Legendre Polynomials, not to mention Conformal Mapping in the Complex Plane, to do it! LOL! :))

Upon reflection, you're probably right. Since they could never permit themselves to be called liberal, they had something to hide and I think what that was they were hiding was their deep distrust of the government (when run by Republicans) and absolute hatred of the country.

I was wondering about the resolution on the Patriot Act too. Can someone answer for us?

Where is Toby? Has someone called him? How can I start my day without his morning message from Mississippi?

We have had lots of rain for the past few days - but no icy weather and that is fine with me!

MERRY CHRISTMAS DEAR FRIENDS! You all mean so much to me - your prayers and friendship have sustained me through very difficult times....I love you all!

I am so disgusted with the Senate right now that I can't make a decent judgement about any of them.

I'm disgruntaled, too. Obviously.

I don't necessarily think Lott would have done a better job, either. But I've heard enough stories about his ruthlessness, I have to think those who got off the reservation would have been demoted. That usually shapes them up in a hurry.

Ethicswise, I think Frist is head and shoulders above Lott. But he doesn't seem to be able to make things happen.

I'm headed back to the kitchen shortly to start the Krispie Treat Tree.
