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.
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!
HAHA! You got that right, Chairman! Thanks for the start and intro...
Awaiting the Dishonor Roll WSJ on Congress "supports the troops" vote
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.
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.
I caught the tail end of that report on Fox. Do you know if there is an article posted about it?
Curley, Moe, and Larry...
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.
Yes, pretty near the top on the main FR board.
Thanks! I will go look!
I just freepmailed the link to you.......at least I hope I did.
I wonder how much this will getcovered. Not a lot, I bet.
Do you know when he will speak?
Today was the first I heard of the payoff, but the ugly comments about a black on the ticket harming all democrats was covered during the day yesterday.
..but I will want to read this for sure.
I didn't pay that much attention to the news yesterday, other than the President's press conference. I need to catch up on this story!
Wouldn't you care for a cup of tea, Father Ted? I made cake, it has cocaine in it...
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!
