    On the matter of Obozo speaking in Troy today, he is right where he belongs. Here in the wonderful capital of the People’s Republic of New York we have a saying:
    “Albany is the ‘behind’ of New York, and Troy is 5 miles up it”.

    (I WOULD take this opportunity to say “Run Rudy, Run!” or even invite Sarah to move to NY, but I don’t want any flaming Viking Kitties thrown at me, so I won’t.)

    I think Paterson is just talking out his butt. Am I correct in saying that if the dems don’t want him to run, he doesn’t have a chance of being on the ballot, unless he wants to use his own money?

    Defund ACORN Act...

    ... thinking a bunch of them misread the title of the act -
    I’d bet they thought it said “Defend” Acorn.

  • NEVER FORGET: Where Were you on 9/11?

    Wife of D to DaveLoneRanger

    I was working the front desk for MC-2 (squared) in Chestnut Ridge, NY. (a trade show company). Getting in about 8AM and turning on WABC from NYC on my radio.... first plane hit and I was alarmed but really though it was a commuter and was just waiting... second plane hit and I knew it was terrorists - (who didn’t?) and I picked up the intercom and made the announcement the that World Trade Towers had been hit by planes....
    I called my fiance - ‘D’, in New Jersey - he worked at Morgan Stanley in the WTC complex but was home that Tuesday.
    The school my kids were in - Highland Falls CSD - came under immediate alarm as the kids from West Point Military Academy were there. Everyone from my company left but as I was the front desk I was told to stay until about 4PM to field calls. I remember driving home and looking up at the sky every 30 seconds. My 2 daughters were never so precious as when I got home. My ex-husband came around and dug out his guns from ‘the safe place’ and disappeared for 2 days.
    I lost a brother-in-law from the 101st floor, several school friends, and 2 business associates. The funerals went on for months as bits were found and identified.
    At this 4:20AM on September 11, 2009, I mourn for all the souls lost on that terrible day... and for the American Innocence lost 7 years and 4 hours ago.... changed everything, didn’t it? God help us.

    Thank you for asking this question that I would never have thought to ask. It’s important to have a touchstone back to that horrible day. Terribly fresh still. Of course, the links are going up on my Facebook account.
    BTW, on FB I play Mafia Wars and folks in my crew have posted requests for no attacking tomorrow. It’s a small gesture, but it’s something.
    Y’all be blessed. God help and have Mercy on the United States of America.

  • FL: 5-17 year olds forced to listen GREAT LEADER Obama's "necessary" speech OR ELSE

    Wife of D to steve0

    The article says they will not provide an alternative “opt-out” space for kids who do not want to see the speech. Unless I missed it, though, there wasn’t a threat of punishment or discipline for any child not in attendence, so absolutely keep your kid home that day.

    Of course, this speech will be recorded for future viewing, which they will likely spring on the absentees without notice at some point in the future. If your kids have cells tell them to text or call you if this happens on Day 2 of school then go get them for a family emergency.

  • Progressives Warn Obama Against "Weakened" Public Option In Healthcare Bill

    I learn more every day. I didn’t know there was a Congressional Progressive Caucus. My opinion is that “Progressive” has no business in a United States government body - may as well say ‘Socialist, Marxist’, etc.. This caucus has way too many members in it. All democrat? I also know that not enough Americans realize what “Progressive” really means.

    The link is a few months old, I think. At this site is a list of the members of this group. I know most you here are aware, but this is for those of us like me who are still learning.

  • FTC orders Daniel Chapter One to lie to customers about cancer remedies

    Wife of D to Scythian

    This is very true. I agree there are quacks (in any field) but my God!! The Good Lord made the earth and put all good things in it! Of course we’re going to find good things for our bodies there! And as for doctors and the medical field -they all don’t know everything, and I don’t trust any of them that scorn organic or ‘natural’ things.

    I myself have a terrific interest natural things, which is why I describe myself as a Christian, Conservative hippie. I’ve had some small success as a weekend herbalist. And funny, just 10 minutes before I read this thread I was looking for more information about natural remedies for a problem I’m having and said a little prayer that I might find an answer. And I think He also sent a confirmation. :)

    This thread is from yesterday afternoon on this topic:

    The article was Titled
    “White House Seeks to Capture and Archive Citizens’ Comments on its Facebook, YouTube, Myspace”
    From: CNS ^ | 9/1/09 | Fred Lucas

    This article today left out “its” from the title. Please look for yourself.

    I am not a fan of the current resident so I am NOT trying to defend -I’m pointing out a difference in meaning. I read through most of the comments and didn’t see anything pointing to yesterday’s thread.

    There are enough things to fear and loathe about bamie and the purple shirts, and we have to keep information as clear and honst as possible.

    Just FYI.

    Wife of D to dila813

    I think Bamie totally misinterpretted what ‘keeper’ means. But he’s never read the Bible, so he’s completely ignorant. I believe he thinks of himself-as-keeper as something that contains or holds or controls or keeps within bounds. That kind of keeper.
    “I am the one that contains and controls and keeps you all within the bounds I set”. That’s what he’s actually saying.

    Although I choke down vomit when I try this, I do attempt to pray for Barry’s soul. I know that God can do all things and any- thing. Still, that God would shame my doubting faith and turn this man from his arrogance and sin.....

    Not that I don’t deserve a good smiting of my own, but for using this phrase and attempting to turn good for evil, may God smite the hell of this foolish jerk, and Forgive me if I enjoy it too much.
