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.

I'm reading Jeter's book and got a jersey for my Bday. But I think I told you about the jersey already, and may have even included a graphic from Dick's Sporting Goods if my memory serves me right..... See, not getting that old yet. LOL!

Thanks so much for steering me to Diane Ravitch's The English Reader, Molly. I've ordered it and will certainly enjoy this anthology.

I've also been enjoying reading Elizabeth Kantor's The Politically Incorrect Guide to English and American Literature, a Christmas gift and an excellent consideration and analysis of the best Western literature that, unfortunately, is NOT being taught in our schools/colleges...and that's the premise of the book.

(One consolation to being my age is that I DID have teachers who taught the classics. Kantor's book gives new insights into them, and I am enjoying this bonus.)

Boy, you aren't kidding about the clothes this year! Again, Talbot's has let me down. I guess I will make do with what I have and order some polo shirts and tees from Land's End which I will mix with things I already have.

There has to be some place to get clothes that don't look like retro seventies!

Did I ever tall you that a friend of mine used me as a source for students in his middle school class? I would get calls from kids who would ask me questions about history, literature, poetry, science, etc.

It was pretty amazing, because the questions were about things which I thought were common knowledge.

I don['t understand the desire to ignore such great contributions to Western civilization in favor of pop authors who will be forgotten in 20 years.

People here have asked me what JT is doing now. My stock answer is that he shoots people and breaks things.

That is absolutely crazy and explains a whole lot why the sheeple vote the way they do. Shallow, shallow, shallow.

I read only the article announcing her death. And then, I've avoided it all. Shoot, I read more about Barbaro than her.

The hand is improving, BUT I can't put weight on the wrist, like picking up a pillow, or a drink, or a plate, without pain. So, the doc is sending me back to the hospital for another x-ray. She said that sometimes green stick fractures don't show up immediately. There is still some swelling in the area, too.

It's amazing, isn't it, that what we thought everyone knew is not common knowledge? Being a source for those students is a great compliment to you and indicative of your continuing effort to educate...your grandkids and ...right here on FR, for instance. LOL

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.

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.

To: Carolinamom

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.

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.

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.

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

Finding clothes is a nightmare. The styles and fabrics are awful.

Have found some decent sweaters and shirts at Monteray Bay. Need to check their sizing closely though as they fit bigger. (Mediums are too big and that is what I usually wear).

Sometimes Spiegel will have dresses that work.

Good luck!

Quality seems to be pretty good in the sweaters and shirts, better than the mall stuff. And, a smaller size is always nice. :-)

I don't know when this began, but I can remember the 60s when my girlfriend and her husband were upset their girls were not being taught art, literature etc, as we had been taught. Even home ec was about instant foods and not basic food planing etc, my area of interest. I Know I was a nurse, but my interest was and is homopathy and food. I don't think they teach music either, unless one is in a band..we were taught music appeciation.

If there are misspellings, blame it on my broken wrist. I'm typing, for the first time, with both hands. It's amazing which fingers are weak.

I'm glad to hear that about the quality, Rheo. And that's good advice about looking at them online.

I shared an extra catalog with a woman at church and I'll ask her if she's ordered anything from them yet. They really do put outfits together nicely, casual but stylish.

You're doing great, Tillacum! A broken wrist is so debilitating, and it takes a long time to heal. The exercise of typing could be good to strengthen your fingers.

I'm not giving a big dinner party like Peach is, but I do have company coming tomorrow night and Sunday, so I've been cleaning, planning multiple meals, and grocery shopping.

I'm pooped and have decided to just let some things go until tomorrow. I may even bake a cherry cheese cake for dessert.

Right now, though, I have a very good book that is beckoning me. How's that for making excuses to keep from doing more housework? LOL

Hi, Two Thirds.

Because I like Rudy, there is a pretty vocal group on FR who is wanting me banned. So if for some reason that happens, I just want you to know that I've enjoyed talking with you through the years. I doubt it will happen, but a lot of others aren't so sure. LOL

Anyway, here's the thread:

you seem to always be considerate & thoughtful in your responses.

Even if people disagree, if they do so with respect they should not be banned IMHO.

The idiots that join, trash all in US including our president, the values we hold dear, resort to name calling, & obviously have a socialistic agenda are the ones I cheer when shown the door.

I think Jim respects you for a lot of reasons. One learns on these threads..Lord knows I do.

When someone confronts you or disagrees with you the options are to fight blindly or to restudy & come back either changed or comfirmed in your mindset.

I dont think you are too closed minded to change but I think you are well read enough to NOT be thrown for a loop with data (true data that is) presented
