The President gives his SOTU speech Tues. night, and for me, the best part of the evening will be seeing House Speaker BOEHNER sitting behind him, and NOT Speaker PELOSI!
Hope everyone in the areas covered by the Arctic cold is staying warm and safe as can be.
Well said! It is so immensely full of holes. His life and his family’s life is being threatened at this very moment.
Maybe we won't but I suspect you're wrong. When he appears in public again, he will be questioned about it. And he loves the limelight and I think Evans won't be able to resist opening his mouth again. Right now I think he's in trouble. I think he didn't know what he was getting into. He just knows Abercrombie and thought he could trade on that relationship. He opened his mouth w/o getting it cleared and now he is in trouble and I bet Abercrombie is in trouble because of Evans, too.
It won't go away. The mainstream hasn't mentioned it yet, but Fox has.
Damn, girl. I think you have it down very well. I cannot disagree with anything you said.
You’re sweet to say that to me. :)
Safe travels, 2/3rds...
In the fwiw department, I can produce my COLB, with the state seal, in about 45 seconds.
Otherwise, I wouldn't have a passport, or have served in the Army.
Methinks the Kenyan emperor has no clothes.
Greetings! I think you may be right. I think those responsible for putting him in office are beginning to realize their farce is beginning to fall apart. They’re trying to keep it together but there are just too many holes in it and they can’t keep us all fooled all the time.
Is this going to be the shove or ... well, I was going to say, do we keep on working but we must keep on working IRREGARDLESS just to keep it going.
Oops! I think I had Jem on the brain, lol! Thanks Molly!
He is hiding something very incriminating.
They were so absolutely thoughtless and reckless in their voting, they, in themselves, are even a danger to our Republic giving no thought to the very important ramifications of their vote.
Thank you for breakfast, lysie. I was hungry this morning!
Good morning. Me, too.
2/3rds...you and Jemian were having a very intense conversation on that subject. Fascinating!

What happened to the chicken liver?
Abercrombie told Mike there “ain’t” no birth certificate of Barak Hussien Obama in their records. LOL HA HA HA. Evidently nobama was hatched...like your chicken liver.
My chicken liver is actually a RINO. One of the better RINOs, to be sure, but a RINO, nonetheless. He crossed and sat with a RAT in a “strong show of unity and bipartisanship.” I don’t want unity with the RATS or bi-, dri-, swi-partisanship. I want NO-partisanship with them. Apparently, Mike Rogers (R-3rd district AL) didn’t get that message.
GOOD A.M. TO YOU, kind lady, here I come to the computer at about half speed. can’t find my glasses, trying to warm my ‘shack in the back’. hungry as a lumberjack. think I will have a second ‘heping’ of what you posted.
We are still having a bout of the flu, hoping in its last stages, GD staying home, I do my regular thing, nothing but a little slower today.
Now for my last cup of coffee, one thing my career taught me well, drink coffee.
I'm not moving very fast this morning, either. One more cup of coffee and I must get my act together.
Here is one for you, my dad’s name was Tobe Dunn Wood, the foks at the birth certificates wrote mine up as Toby Wood and the folks wrote it up as Toby, my folks liked it so here I am stuck with my name.
I have a couple more days of my diet which was a total failure. I would cheat and say I lost 5 pounds but know it is more like a ‘couple’ of pounds. I must admit, didn’t try so bery hard.
Went to WalMart yesterdy, forgot my list of things to get.
Me thinks you’re correct. I have my bc and DD214 when I renew my passport.
Hmmm, I think we’ll have a Jimmy Dean sausage w/scrambled eggs when Roomey begins to move, oh and a cuppa.
OK, found my glasses, strange, the were exactly where I left them last night....
I was shocked to see Boehner wearing that silly black and white solidarity ribbon during the readers rendition of a writers words. That reminded me of a bunch of kindergardeners in a school play. Or as baba boxer said, it was like prom night sitting next to the opposition.
AS soon as I get my ‘get started’ period of the morning, I am going to give my ‘shack in the back’ a top to bottom cleaning. Well, maybe.....I have the feeling my ‘reading stint’ will keep this from happening..
During my cateract surgery, my Dr put in a lens where I can read a book, but need glasses for the phone directory and fine print. I have 5 pair of #1s from Wallmart and cannot find one when I need it. I’m far sighted so don’t need them for driving.
I love chicken livers but I am the only one in this family who does. Can’t see buying a bucket full for only one person.
I just want to know, how much snow is enough snow?
Do you see that first flake? That one there, just floating down from the dark and foreboading clouds above? It is just floating down happy to escape the gloom and doom, innocent, carefree, delightful. Yes, THAT one.
OK, that's enough snow.
LOL somehow that first one is such a distant memory to me.
We got slapped with yet another 7” last night and get to look forward to another storm next tues into wed.
One more foot of plowable snow and I won’t be able to find the mailbox.
Seriously tho I wish it would warm up enough to melt the ice building up on the roof near the gutters. It is about 12” high now.
We need a good two days of 40 degrees and get some of this melting going
Hope a warm up comes soon. You’ve had way too much of that white stuff. Ugh!
Are schools closed there?
Good morning Molly. Glad you enjoyed it. It is a fascinating subject.
Here's something to think about....
I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old. I asked, "Is Castro a good guy or bad?"
Dad said he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana at the time. Dad was in the army there.
Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.
This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.
This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s. His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary paradise.
Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved America on the Fourth of July.
We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington .
But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist"
We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."
The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just like Barack Obama?"
He responded; "Yes, just like Barack Obama."
He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied."
"I remember my uncle saying after it started; 'Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware store.' But that is exactly what happened; Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because others are moving in with you."
The lesson learned from this discussion is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.
If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society would be evaporating just like it did in Castro's Cuba in the early 1960s.
But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without due process by the government. Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled by the Attorney General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime and illegal activity and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers while the innocent are killed and overrun. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.
Without the rule of law the U.S. Constitution is a sham. Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book, a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.
The only way this problem will be fixed is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally must come together and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end now. And yes, it can happen here.
And may God save the United States of America !
Thank you lysie. I remember those days. I remember Nixon trying to alert Preisdent Eisenhower and the adminstration, at that time, that Castro was a communist. The democrats and a lot of Republicans began calling Nixon a liar. I also remember Castro being welcomed to NY City and put in the Waldorf Astoria, I think he was given 4 or 5 floors. One night during his stay in the US he decided to have a “party” in his suite (free to the new gov’t of Cuba, thanks to the US), Castro decided to have a bbq and build a fire in the middle of the floor of his suite. I’m not kidding, if it’s not been pulled, it’s somewhere in the “Old Time” or “Post” magezines. It was an amazing, unbelievable piece of “No Care and NO Respect” by a visitor to the Us. Cuba did not pay for the repairs, the US did. So from the beginning, our democrats and a lot of “progressives” of that time did not want to call Castro “common faire” and dangerous, as my Mom did.
All liberals, “progressives” are of the same ilk, look what Pussy Pelosi has done as “screetcher of the house” with her demands of an AF 757 fully equiped aircraft with a full compliment of AF personnel to do her bidding. They are all alike and we have a full compliment of progressives in OUR whitehouse accompained by his tzars, the AG and the democrat party with some Rinos in the republican party.
We must be very alert of what is happening in our country. We cannot allow what has happened in Cuba, Old Russia and the Sudaten Land after WWII. We cannot let the American Idea die.
Nicely stated, till. I agree.
The sun might not come up in the mornings but lysie, you are always here serving us a breakfast. Thinking of fixing me a bowl of grits.
Went to WalMart. left my list at home of items needed. Hate doing this.
I got to get SIL to look at my coffee pot and see if he can find something on it to turn it up, the heat that is. The way it is now I can pour a cup and gulp the intire thing down.

Thank you for breakfast, the pretty sunrise and valuable words and thoughts.
That looks yummy. But today I think we’re going to have a couple of sausages and the pancakes you served the other day with raspberries.
Good morning. Make an extra one or two for me. :-)
Schools were only on a 2 hr delay
We such a mixed range of snow here in the Hudson Valley. We got over 7 inches, yet folks about 8 miles north of us only got 3.
More headed our way next week.
Ok, come on over in about 30 minutes. Roomey is beginning to stir. It’ll be brunch.
Wonder how much my mom got in PA ...... gives me an excuse to call
