In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. 200 miles north of Westchester this morning, sippiin my coffee on a lake on the ADKs, loving the peace and tranquility. Got a friend who worked the wedding at Stone Barns last night, he is a manager there,…report to follow.

    Hang in there. Posters, 2016 aint that far away.

    H

        1. Moo has the girls wearing boob belt styles too. To me that is just plain ugly & unattractive, but I don’t wear $1000.00++ dresses either.

        1. Yep – the guests will be staring in disbelief. Mo and Malia remind me of cocktail waitresses we saw at Caesar’s Palace many, many years ago – black see-thru chiffon with gold lame. So trashy!

      1. nobody ever smiles in that crew. They all look miserable.I don’t understand. Its not like they have a tough life. They go to school and vacation. Looks like the younger girl returned from wherever she was.

  2. And what would a Sunday (or any day for that matter) be without yet another example of the federal government acting in a fashion completely against the best interests of the taxpayers who pay for it.

    As part of a settlement in an ACLU lawsuit over the ‘unfair’ treatment that some illegals received by agreeing to SELF DEPORT, our tax dollars will now go for advertisements in Mexico advising others who left voluntarily it’s now OK to come back.

    It’s bad enough Obama has our Border Patrol changing diapers and has opened up miles of border that can’t even be patrolled because of federal “off limits” regulations, but now the legal American citizen struggling harder than at anytime since the 30’s has to pay to invite illegals back? WTF?

    Leading up to the 2012 elections I repeated one phrase over, and over, and over: Obama 2012: Kick him out or Kiss it goodbye.

    We are now getting our kiss. Of death.

    1. Thanks for the clip.
      Illegals land by boat near San Diego. All adults men and woman. Some were caught the others got away.
      Another boat arrived with illegals (20 adults, men and woman), but they were able to catch all of them.
      cncnews.com…/illegal-aliens-storm-beach-san-diego
      or just type as I did: bunch of illegals land by boat near san diego.

      1. Lee, you made me LOL with your final search phrase:
        “bunch of illegals land by boat near san diego”
        Amazing that a search engine now recognizes “bunch” as a real, definitive number.
        No sarcasm to Lee at all….plenty of sarcasm directed at O and his Administration for their use of words like “bunch.”

      2. I had heard about it early this morning. I didn’t use the word storm when I was searching for it.
        As far as I am concerned our fine soldiers stormed Normandy Beach. I consider these illegals a bunch, and they weren’t storming, they were sneaking onto our beach.
        Glad I brought a smile. :)

    2. Well they spend money on signs (in English only) that warn us
      off-roaders to stay away from certain border areas as there will be illegals around & it’s not safe for Americans (on our own land!).

        1. I’m a Bible believer and “quoter”. Contains the truth for me when there is so little honesty left in this world. Read this or not, but if you do, hope it makes you feel … better.
          Psalm 37:1-8 King James Version (KJV)
          Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
          For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
          Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
          Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
          Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
          And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
          Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
          Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

  3. Children being held at Islamic State training camps are being forced to beheadings and taught to fire machine guns. And Obama parties on.

    Obama parties on.

    1. I read it this morning. As usual a very imformative piece.
      I still cannot comment there untill I get a new computer box.
      As far as listening to the rhetoric I will not. I just turned off Fox for a moment, because I didn’t want to listen to the Al Shap.
      news bit, won’t give him the satisfaction.

      1. Thank you for stopping by Lee.
        Many of the people that comment there are anticipating voter fraud in the 2014 elections similar to what happened in 2012.

        Only 6 seats are required to take the majority in the senate and remove Harry Reid from his monarchy over the senate.
        We must pray for that to happen.

  5. Some Middle Eastern terrorist militia, sect, jv team is frolicking in the US Embassy pool in Tripoli. Unexpectedly that Embassy was successfully evacuated before being overtaken.

  6. I got a kick out of the lead story on Weasel Zippers this morning. It seems the feds have already spent $2.87 million of our taxpayer dollars on a study of why lesbian women are obese, and they are continuing to study the problem.

    It reminded me of one of those Hitler memes which were so popular a few years ago using a scene from the movie The Downfall in German and doing English subtitles on different topics. My fave was the one of Hitlery Clinton losing the Indiana primary in 2008, and Hitler is raving about “marshmallow shaped lesbians”.

    1. I don’t have any expertise in this, but that won’t stop me from giving it my attention:
      This – the obese eat more than they should and some of the obese are lesbians. Of course, some obese people are not lesbians, some are heterosexuals, some are White, some Black, some Asian, and young/old/, too.

      Now, where do I apply for my piece of the money?

      1. And some obese people eat normal amts and are still obese–and lesbians–which is a travesty. Sorry–all the grants for this yr are dibbed. (Or–and this is just a working hypothesis for my study proposal–perhaps lesbians, both being women, are more body-tolerant and don’t get “hints” from hubbie about taking off a few, while HE sits there pounding in the nachos.)

  7. I would appreciate it if some kindly informed person would tell me what is going on in England with the elections or whatnot. I have never really followed it — it seems that the right is left, the left is right, etc. And I cannot even adjust to driving on the right side of the road and I am no fan of roundabouts.

    1. All I know is that Ukip stands for UK Independent Party. They are neither Tory (Conservative) or Labour or Liberal. They are a new party which wants to leave the European Union and for Great Britain to stand by itself with its own currency, I presume. I also think they would not be for open borders, as serious an issue for them as for us.

        1. Deservedly so, about those buttons! And so far so good on the kindly. At least here. Thanks Julie.

          IMO — the whole EU and Euro thing — folly then , folly now. But that’s just me.

      1. UKIP is also considered to be anti-immigration, particularly from islamic countries. Of course, they are called “racists” by the left.

        1. Yes. IKIP gives me hope.
          Anybody that’s stupid enough to
          *fly wthe PINO on AF1 to go to a basketball game (!) and eat hot dogs on camera (that would be Cameron), and
          *have a selfie w/the PINO and the good-looking long-legged blonde ambassador at the Mandela funeral-
          well, that guy might expect some trouble?
