AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 2216) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
Various News Sources and FReepers | February 15, 2007 | All of Us

Posted on 02/15/2007 5:07:46 AM PST by Chairman_December_19th_Society

As we settle into the nighttime of despair, fret not, for the Sun will rise again!!

Good morning!!

We, here, will never forget those who died on September 11, 2001, as we seek to protect the Republic from all who will do her harm!!

F

This is the grade snow removal personnel in Virginia get the day after the winter storm. Almost a full day after precipitation of all kinds have come to an end, we have:

** Hard pack in several places on main roads.

** Side streets often unplowed.

** Where side streets are plowed, berms left in main roads

** Roads not plowed to full width

** Turn lanes under impassable amounts of ice/snow.

** Sometimes lanes next to the turn lanes under impassible amounts of ice/snow.

** Lanes disappearing (unplowed) on far sides of intersection.

** Sand? You heard of that?

The only saving grace--it's bitter cold, and snow and ice become less slippery in such situations.

In other news, it is reported that Russia, India, and China appear to be performing a partnership to challenge United States domination of the world.

The London Times, in their article on the subject, writes about how these three countries, together, make up 20 percent of the world's economy.

That's nice. The United States, by itself, makes up 33 percent. Be careful of what you ask, you might just get it.

Oh, and a picture of our challengers...

Let's play, caption the photo...

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

Hi! Still looking for that global warming? Anyone seen it? Can't remember it being this cold this late in February in the 20 years I've been in Washington. Oh, wait, it hasn't!

Here is a very interesting and important article:

How Not to Talk to Your Kids (The Inverse Power of Praise)

I highly recommend clicking through and reading the full article. It concerns a study of why kids who seem smart do not achieve their full potential, how self-esteem has not worked as intended, and how to praise children without giving them empty, "feel-good" compliments. It is very important, and I am going to try to implement it with my grandkids. Anyone who deals with children should read it.

Of special interest this morning is the story about the black legislator from South Carolina whose firm just happened to get a $200,000 contract from hitlery.....just days before he made the announcement that he was not supporing Barak Obama.

He also made the disparaging comment that if a black man were on the top of the ticket the entire democrat slate of candidates including governors would go down in defeat.

Morning folks. Took me ten minutes to open my car door this morning.

Those of you who are home, watch the debate in the House today on the funding of troops. Congressman Sam Johnson's speech is going to be a keeper.

Good morning!

I understand that Bubbah has been working the phones soliciting funds...and who knows what else...for Hillary. Looks like these 2 are determined one way or another to return to public housing/the WH.

After reading that article you linked, MM, I now know why I did well in college. (I don't remember my dad ever praising me for making good grades. He expected me to do so. Period.)

As a naive girl from a small town and public school, I was mightily impressed w/the questions, comments, and class participation of students from other states in my freshmen college courses. I remember thinking that I needed to bear down if I was going to make it, so I studied to 'catch up'.

Imagine my surprise to learn much later that I was making better grades than these students were. In freshman English class, I labored over and over to get beyond a B grade on my compositions.

One day while writing still another essay in class, the professor went round the room returning our last compositions. He reached over my left shoulder and placed my last composition squarely on top of the one I was writing, and when I saw that it had an A- on it, I glanced up at him....must have looked startled...because he smiled!

I valued that smile even more than the grade!

When I was a junior/senior in college, I was in a discussion class with about 12 other high level, including grad students in a history class. One morning, our professor was running late, so we started the debate on our own. She walks in and we're deep in the middle of our own argument. Then her husband, who was a fellow history professor, walks in, and she tells him that we started the debate on our own. He does a jig right there. It was hillarious...

Since the media rushed to Edwards to comment on his foul mouthed bloggers why is there no demand for comment from hitlery. Her supporters denigrating a black candidate?

She must be asked to comment!

Delightful story, ABG! He recognized true excellence in self starters.

I've learned that lesson well, OF...there is worth in the effort of trying anything. Failures even teach one to try again because you've learned what didn't work. Inventors and scientists use that method all the time.

Grades aren't the be-all of anything either. Working just for a grade is not really learning imo.

Another memory coming up! On a T-F test in a psychology class, the professor had marked one of my answers as being wrong: in the Q&A, I told him that I thought my answer on that one was correct because I had myself observed the opposite 'fact' to be true. His reply was that "according to the textbook...."blah blah blah. I told him he could keep the point...I wasn't interested in that. I maintained that the textbook's author was wrong. He chuckled and that was the end of it.

Several years later, I met him on campus and he addressed me by name (which surprised me because the class had had 75 students in it....probably remembered my impertinence in doubting the textbook. LOL

My greatest academic accomplishment was the A I got on my mid-term in Structural Geology. I STILL remember one of the questions: "Relate the theory of pressure faulting and strike-slip faults to the Mohr-Coulomb Theory of Rock Failure."

I worked SO HARD in those geology classes because I was a woman, because I did not have a strong high school math/science background, and because I was paying for the classes myself.

There is a lesson in there somewhere.

GOOD A.M. CHAIR, ALL FROM THE 'COLD' MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST USA and NO CHAIR, CAN'T FIND GLOBAL WARMING HERE EITHER!!!!

What would you do about the body of Nicolle. Even though there was a strange relationship with her mother she is just that, her mother. If Her 'common law' husband was more interested in her than the bunches of money she MIGHT be entitled to I don't think he should get the body. I have always said that no matter what your children do, they are part of you and your love for them never leaves. I also feel that the baby should be put in mothers care until the true daddy can be established. So much for my 'wisdom'.

It is cold here this morning with the high for the day to be in the 40s. It was by my old Copper tone weather systen detector, it is 37 right now and to us, that is cold. I am happy to say that we do NOT expect any snow, sleet or frozen rain.

Jason bulletin!!!! He likes to put bowls on his head, with food in them, but other wise eats very well. Of course you KNOW that 'BawBaw' gives him some sweets after breakfast which is against the rules set down by D, oh well, what she going to do, fire me?

Got to go and get some chicken feed today, crushed corn as that is the favorite of the El chick O's. I also want to see when the farm store starts getting their chicks, turkeys, etc., so I can 'upgrade' my flock.

D starts preparing to get another foster child and it might be the sister of Jason, if not she still wants one more child, me too, how often does a guy get to spoil a child again and again.

I had to run to the big house a while ago and me and Jason watched BLUES CLUES, that kid picks up on things real fast.

Here is hoping that all have a good day, a safe on and one filled with love towards someone.

I know what you mean. I had a grad course in Shakespeare that I absolutely loved and another one...a lab...in biology!

Unfortunately, I never had what I would consider to be a good history course....even thought it might be my fault in not being interested in wars, treaties, and memorizing dates. Instead, I found through my own wide reading and through literature that history...ideas, personalities, changes, countries/geography, etc. is fascinating!

My husband and I talk about this self esteem bit a lot and how it's damaged kids.

USA Today had a hilarious article about 6 mos about about the first college graduates who were raised under this self esteem model.

New employees were given relatively easy tasks, such as drafting a memo for their supervisor. Said supervisor was dismayed at the number of spelling and grammatical errors and tried to discuss these issues with the new hires.

Several Fortune 500 company supervisors who were interviewed for the article said that the employees would respond when told their spelling wasn't good "That's your opinion". LOL

Peach, did you ever find a dress? I believe the Appleseed catalog has some possibilities worth looking at.

Dolly, how about your heat? It wasn't bad out there principally because there was little wind...still you need heat in your home, wind or no wind...that just made it less frigid doing errands.

Raven, my husband cleared the ice and snow from the only pipe by our furnace, whatever its function...it seemed like a good idea. They mentioned this on TWC last night and I thought I heard it was the intake valve, but maybe not.

Yes, I found two dressses but it took a lot of doing because the clothes are really rather ugly again this year.

I'm a wreck because we're hosting a big party Saturday night and a new neighbor is coming who lives part time in Zurich; he's a board member of their stock exchange. So we're cleaning like mad; I hadn't realized how I'd let things go since my sister was here.

It's a good time for us to get to these projects, Molly, since it's cold. In a month or two we'll be glad we got it all behind us so we can enjoy the warmer weather.

It was 23 degrees in central Texas and by 0900 it was up to 28 degrees. Beanie, our outdoor pup had her nose against the patio door waiting to get in. Of course, she spends most of her time in the house when the weather is too warm and when it starts getting cool, now it's cold, so she sleeps on her warming blanket in the garage, but come daylight, she thinks it's time to come inside. So much for being an outside dog.
