Skip to comments.AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 2216) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
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!!
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!!
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.
I was shocked to learn in one of my English 12 classes that before I could teach Milton's sonnets that I first had to explain his Biblical references, the Biblical parables, and metaphors.
Cavalier poetry was a breeze for them, however! Raging hormones stimulated their spirited discussions about female beauty being short lived ("Gather ye rosebuds...") Lol
The year before I retired the NC School Board was requiring that English teachers get on board teaching literature from "diverse" sources.....had nothing but mimeographed copies of the stories, which in my opinion had nothing of literary merit to recommend them but that their authors were from obscure African and Mideastern countries.
While I am all for broadening students' minds, I do think that they first should be exposed to their own culture and literature before venturing into the one worldism seeping into our schools.
'Guess I'm just a dinosaur.
He did post the sunset pic first, but I think you're right. At first I wasn't sure who that silhouette was for sure, but then I noticed the nose. It is JT.
BTW...what is a green-stick fracture?
It is a fracture where the bone doesn't really break but sort of bends and has some splits in it. It's name is from what happens to a stick which was still growing when taken off a tree. The stick doesn't break with a clean snap but has some splits through it.
FWIW, I plan to ride my motorcycle to the hospital! LOL!
I need to get ready for chapel and other things. It is now approaching 6AM here. BBL
Oh my. What great pics. Thank you.
A handsome nose it is, too.
At 1506 hrs it's a blistering 39 degrees.
If you find such a place, let me know. I finally found a simple A-line dress with matching full length jacket for aster Sunday, but when I asked the salespeople about A-line dresses, it was like I was talking Greek.
Even my husband, who has zero fashion sense, looked around one store and said the colors and styles were the ugliest he'd ever seen.
I'm so glad I sew. I've just joined a sewimg group, what a group of talented people. Of course, I haven't done anything in the group, yet, but as soon as I can, I'll whip something up.
To the winning imbecile goes $94 Mil. I was sipping my firt cup coffee when they were talking about the body being held in FL until.......when one of the reporters said something like, "while the body is laying there it's decaying". I just to laugh over that. Macabre sense of humor before the second cup.
Well here's another dinosaur. My boys are always surprised when they borrow one of our history or "old" reading books, how history was taught in our "age" compared to theirs and how English usage was used then and how clean our stories were compared to books today.
Very nice picture of JT, and you are right, that's what he does.
When I was in grad school, one of my favorite professors confided to me that he was having "a God awful time" of choosing novels for his British novel course and could only depend on the 19th century and early 20th century novels, which were more circumspect (i.e.not vulgar) and would not get him into trouble. LOL
Love the pics! I hope JT gets to break lots of things and shoot lots of bad guys!
Love the pics of JT.
And I hope the wrist straightens up soon.
Nice to see you here this evening, Sweetie. I hope you're feeling stronger these days. I miss so many posts during the week, I never know for sure what I've missed.
Please know that you, Herb & the rest of your family continue in our prayers.
Thank you for sharing those awesome pictures. And please thank him for his service, tell him we support him and all our fabulous Military! Good job!
Thanks, sweetie! Daughter-child and family are coming in this weekend so we'll have a houseful.
Off to watch tv with hubby for a while now.
