Are you feeling bad for the "children" coming across the border?

Know what you are talking about before you let your emotions run.


Sympathy for the "children" is what Barry and all the Latino groups are hoping you'll want to let them stay.

Just an observation:

No good story ever started with "We were having a salad and then...."

It is always racial

So shutting off the water to non paying residents in a predominantly black community is racist because said actions impact black american more than whites.

If I ever had any respect for the NAACP, I lost it when I read the article.

Note this line: "Water was restored to 43 percent after customers paid or worked out payment plans.".

For some reason this didn't post when it should have.

And this was the crowning achievement for NASA

45 years ago, we put a man (actually 2 men) on another celestial body.

(the actual time 3:18 PM Central time)

6 hours later Neil Armstrong became the first human (as far as we know, anyway) to walk upon the surface of the moon.

By today's standards, the equipment they flew in and used was very crude. Your cell phone likely has more computing power than all the computers used in the effort...your desktop or laptop that you are reading this post on almost certainly does. If you fly commercial, you will likely be in a more complex craft.

It took a great deal of effort, and lot of money to do what they did.

Sadly, today, NASA no longer has the drive nor the people to do anything remotely as ground breaking as putting people on the moon. NASA isn't the NASA we think of when we think of NASA.

They have become, at best, a political arm of the current administration, and a waste of money.

But take a moment and reflect on the achievement of the people of NASA then.

Now we gotta beg ex commies for a ride to the "international" space station.

ETA: THis is true. Sad, but true.

James Rockford is finally off parole....

James Garner has passed.

Hell of an actor, Great voice.

I grew up watching the "Rockford Files". 

So many great roles played out so well.
I always thought his role in Maverick was a great swan song...Playing the father of a character he had played in his youth.

All good rides must come to an end.

cause and effect....

Imagine that

Dude must be a racist and all.

Remember: "Weapons of war

Have no place on our streets"
   Barry Obama

Saw one of these on a flatbed in a truckstop today. Had a minute or two to take a decent look at it up close

Looks like there are several vulnerable spots on it:

Brake chambers, which would immobilize the vehicle.

Oil coolers. I saw 2.


Fuel tanks...not that they would blow up or burn, but just leak fuel and stop the vehicle when empty.

All these could be hurt with a decent medium caliber rifle.

Just sayin'.

Hey, the feds actually gave up for once

So the press actually did it's job for once, rather than carry water for Barry and his policies.

Seems that the plan to buy a luxury resort for nearly $4 million to house up to 600 illegals has been scrapped due to public outcry.

Now it the press would only point out the other things that Barry and his minions are doing here, we might actually get somewhere towards stopping him.

Congress certainly ain't doing their job, and House just folds every time there is a confrontation.

I bet we could build a lot of fence with $3.8 million...

If true

If it is true, then THIS should make your head explode.

Newly arrived Illegals given EBT cards and bussed to walmart to shop for supplies. 


So the big talk these days is that we need to increase school funding or class sizes will increase. Currently, the average classroom has 23 students in it in the local area schools .

Now I may well be mistaken, but in elementary school, I remember having 35+ students, and I was reasonably well edumacated. (I lernet to reed and rite pretty good!)

I had classes in high school that exceeded 30 several times, and 27 or so wasn't unheard of.

Yet somehow, my teachers were able to impart some knowledge into my meager brain.

So how is it that 25 students average classroom sizes is too much a load for modern teachers? Especially with modern teaching aids?

Or is this a union thing? Or NEA?

'cause if  not, then my teachers were terribly overworked....


Obama can't find enough funds to fix the VA, cannot give vets any additional help nor find enough funding in order that vets can get the care and equipment they need (and have earned).


He CAN ask for 3.7 BILLION dollars to help illegal immigrant "children" who came here uninvited because their parents believe that Obama won't deport them...

Shows his priorities, don't it?

It is said that the victors write the hisory

And this, apparently, shows that the left has won.

And they are changing the history that is taught to schoolkids today.

Not brown enough?

So there is, apparently, racial discrimination at the border crossings. 

Apparently, only brown people are allowed to enter the country without the proper paperwork, while blonde women from Europe are not, but are, instead, detained.

Customer service: then and now

People think it is worse...and it is. But:

Not all you might think

As I thought, it is the customers that make things more difficult than they did 10 years ago.

How many have been fired?

Seems that the Police in Durham NC have found an easy way to come up with a pretext to search a home even when there is no legal justification for said search.....

Now, if the police can lie and get away with it in a case like this, (enough that the Chief of Police has issued a memo saying that it should stop immediately) then can we ever use their testimony in court? Any policeman? I mean, really, since there is no negative consequences to them, and they are, apparently not willing to clean their own house, I would take any testimony that any Durham policeman gave as a lie.....

From the comments:

"We have blithering idiots running the country".

You may be right.

However, I think it is part of a plan to damage the US...more and more, like ants eating a healthy tree.

Eventually, it falls.

Kids? Maybe

Missing the clues there

Went to the fun show Saturday.

Lots and lots of vendors had lots of guns.

Prices were high. Mostly overpriced.

Ammo of nearly all kinds available.

Prices were high......Cheaper online, even with shipping

All the vendors were complaining no one wanted to buy anything.

If ever there was evidence that we have been invaded

Simply go to a Lowes home improvement store.

The signs are all in Spanish and English.

I mean, I have no issue with people coming to this country (legally) and wanting a better life. I have no issues that they retain and honor the culture from which they came.

But for god's sake, after you choose to live here, learn the native language.

I have known many immigrants, Polish, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Indonesian, Russians.......they all chose to learn english. . I worked for an Italian immigrant when I was in high school, washing dishes in his pizza restaurant. While his english wasn't good, HE SPOKE ENGLISH.  He learned to speak the language of his native country. I do business with a guy who is a motor repairman. He is German (Very Cherman) Yet he speaks english, because HE LIVES HERE AND IT IS HIS COUNTRY.

Not so, these new people. They speak only spanish, and there are enough of them that places like the Banks and now Lowes are catering to them, with Spanish language signage and even spanish language clerks.

I foresee a day, however, when this will backfire upon these businesses. People are getting tired of the pandering to those who are invaders, not citizens. 
I predict there will come a day when those businesses who pander to these invaders will be burned and their property trashed, Where they will be afraid to show spanish language signage.And I will support such actions.

So how does the bottom of the bus look there, folks?

Who loses most from amnesty?

One group is African Americans. (For the folks who are slow,  that would be the ones who are darker than the brown people).

The DNC is willing to toss them under the bus, now that they don't need their vote.

Biased news

Watching the news this morning, I see that the media is still condemning Israel for targeting sites in Gaza that shoot missiles into Israel.

Oddly enough, when these missiles are shot from areas where there are civilians (which is nearly always), then the return fire damages the civilians homes.Sometimes the Israeli airstrikes hurt other people as well.

No one points out that:

 1. History shows being anywhere near the area where Hamas is shooting missiles is bad for your health...the smart person leaves home when Hamas shows up and begins setting up their missile tubes.

2. Israeli civilians are targeted by Hamas missiles.

3. Strangely, Israel doesn't shoot or bomb into Gaza when there isn't anyone shooting at Israel.

Instead, the reporters, generally female and with a quasi British accent, mournfully (while breathlessly narrating) show the damaged concrete boxes  apartments and injured "Palestinian" children and families....and never blame the folks that start this mess...the Hamas nissileeers.

Has anyone else noticed

That since the We Wanna Take Everyone's Scary Guns Away crowd has more or less given up until the next legislative group comes in at the end of 2014, that the number of mass shootings by heavily drugged psychotic individuals has dropped to No more Adam Lanzas with a long history of mental illness and drug treatment or James Holmes and Jared Laughners that had serious mental illness but somehow were unreported and allowed to purchase firearms and go on a rampage.

Odd that, isn't it??

Now I'm not one for tinfoil helmets (shiny side out please) and I hate to think that there would be a group that wants to disarm us so bad that they would sacrifice innocent people and children  and a US Senator just to make their agenda move forward but.....Hell Yes I think that.  Since the gun control legislation went down in flames, there hasn't been a mass shooting of any note. And those who have tried to commit such atrocities since then were, strangely, not long term users of psychotropic drugs.

Odd that, Innit?
