America the Right Way-Staying Vigilant! 29 months left[Weekend Ed.]August 14-15,2010

New York's 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a decision of a lower court by claiming Congress can withhold funding to Acorn (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). ACORN may consider a second appeal. "We cannot let Congress be pushed around by the right-wing media machine into becoming prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner of politically unpopular people or organizations," said Bill Quigley, legal director for The Center for Constitutional Rights arguing for ACORN.

No Bill, the Federal Government should not fund a criminal organization, not a left one or a right one.

"Right-wing media machine".

This guy's quite the comedian, in a tragically stupid sort of way.

“Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground,” the president said.

IMO, with that statement after his endorsement for the mosque, he just became a one-term president.

Good morning, Everyone!

In case you missed it, be sure to go to yesterday's FR thread about Vacation Gal....It's delightful satire....WITH PICTURES...of Michelle Obama's travels.

Laughter (it's said) is good for what ails you; Your response to the thread will prove it...guaranteed.

Good morning ya'll. Thanks so much. I really don't know how you keep track of these birthdays, but it made my day.

The First lady is going to cook me a special breakfast in a little while, but unfortunately I've got to cut the yard first. Life's rough when your unemployed. 8^)

Maybe I'll get a lotto ticket today...

Good morning, Molly Pitcher!

Regarding the mosque at ground zero:

Putting himself directly at odds with the majority of the American people (again).

I guess it’s the Chicago Way - never worry about re-election: the fix is always in.

We are off to a walk-thru at Greg’s parent’s house. Wish us luck. I can’t see us heating the house for another winter. The strain is hurting us.

Thanks, Onyx. I appreciate it. On another matter, this Auburn fan is surely enjoying the Bama-Miss State tickets. Another poll came out placing them as one of the top party schools in the nation (no surprise there) while we are listed as one of the top academic schools. HA! This has been known for some time in this area of the country.

FWIW, it has been overcast all morning and I think I heard thunder a little bit ago, but I could enjoy a steady rain instead of a mist.

That's the thread for Vacation Girl.....Freepers quantim and aphid did it in honor of BahBah, an exceptionally wonderful Freeper, recently deceased.

We really miss her calm, knowledgeable, level-headed, funny, and cheerful insights...especially on the Sunday Talk threads.

The thread even inspired some other freepers to make a YouTube video!

Prior to Obama's flying to FIVE fundraisers and then taking the family to a TEN DAY vacation at Martha's Vineyard, the Obama family is flying to Forida today for ONE NIGHT .....

It's RAINING there now. LOL

Good luck with the walk-through. Does this mean that you’re finished sorting and packing and are ready to put it on the market?

HA! It is as insulting to imagine that 27 hours of deigning to be on the gulf would make up for the months of neglect, thereby exacerbating the oil leak. What do you want to bet that the family doesn’t leave the hotel except for maybe an hour. And of course, he isn’t going to Alabama or Mississipi {sic!] (I wrote it that way in honor of the other institution). We’re being punished for our daring to stand up for states’ rights in the 19th century.

Mr. Prairie was speechless last night at the news that Zeroman endorsed the mosque. Then he wasn’t speechless.

Interesting link about the Greek Orthodox church’s difficulties, I reposted that on FB for greater exposure.

Also posted the land grab article from Malkin earlier....we are reading similar articles this morning Molly.

Good morning and Happy Saturday everybody.

Hopefully he’ll be forced to resign before 2012, by his own party, or Col. Lakin’s lawyers will be successful in their request for the muslim’s sealed records, school records, birth certificate, medical records, etc. Which makes me wonder, how can secret military records be leaked, but no one has found a way to leak the muslim’s records.

Good morning...puter problems this A.M., thinking about letting kids get me a lap top.

Got up late, 2nd time this week, not like this at all. Oh well, just won’t do what I had planned, nothing.

As always your breakfast hits the spot but leaning toward two eggs over a bowl of grits.

Oh boy, oh boy, the Bambam family coming to the coast. I know things are going to be OK now for sure and glad to report that he is not coming to Ms, we are low on the pole I reckon.

Mississippi State is in the fine tradition of land-grant colleges and has a dairy sciences program which produces some of the finest cheese I have ever eaten.

Now, Ole Miss, otoh, is ... well, in a different category.
