Happy Birthday

Tomorrow morning I fly to Denver for four days. My Mom turns 80 on Saturday and we have planned a surprise Birthday party for her. My son, his wife, and their three kids will be flying in from Anchorge. My daughter from Arizona, my sister from North Carolina and her daughter and family from Florida.

My parents have absolutely no clue we are coming. They are not suspicious in the least! Woo hoo! I am so super excited!! We all arrive in Denver tomorrow and will all meet up to hash out the details, then Saturday morning, beginning at 9:00 a.m., we will individually knock on their door, at half hour intervals.

We also have arranged for 80 carnations to be delivered on Saturday and Henry's sister has made a beautiful soft throw and embroidered all the grand kids and great grand kids names on it.

Definitely bringing our video camera to record the event. It is going to be so incredibly fun!!!

Buckle up Fido

Ok, I agree this is not safe for the pet. For Pete sakes, use common sense! However, I also don't agree with what the state of New Ersey is now doing. Requiring pet owners to use safety restraints on their pets while in the car, or pay a fine and face up to 6 months in jail.

"According to CBS in Philadelphia, police and animal control officers will be authorized to ticket New Jersey drivers between $250 and $1,000 if they have “unrestrained” animals in the front seat of their car, on the driver’s lap, partially out the window, or even in the back of a pickup truck.

Islam-~~~~Spawn of Satan

The hypocrisy, the disgusting and the demonic so called religion of peace. The following is from barenakedislam website.

Saudi boys and men grinding to the music

One of the men seems particularly fond of his man boobs as he keeps showing them off and having them touched. So, where are the Saudi ‘morality’ police when you need them? Oh, that’s right, they’re busy arresting women for wearing lipstick and trying to drive.



Dog Danger

It's always good to be educated on where our food comes from, and just as important to know, is where the food and treats we feed our pets come from. Take for example, Waggin Train jerky tenders. Jack has been loving these for over a year. This is what they look like:

And, this is what the Waggin Train website says about their product:

"To ensure Waggin’ Train treats are not only delicious, but also safe and healthy, they are produced, packaged and inspected in accordance with the highest sanitation and safety standards. In fact, we undertake the extra step of sterilizing every product through irradiation in accordance with USDA guideline."

Wonderful!! In accordance with USDA guideline. Sounds like there's nothing to worry about. Wait. On May 10th, there was a story reporting tht dog treats are coming out of China, and people across the country have made the connection between these products and the deaths of their dogs. Notice in the blip above, they are quick to ensure you that their product is 'produced, packaged and inspected....". NO mention of where the product is made. That is until you go to the FAQ page of their site, where we find the following:


"Q:Where are these treats made?

A: These treats are made in China at facilities that are modeled after U.S. Department of Agriculture standards for quality and safety. In China, dark meat chicken is more popular with consumers than white meat chicken, and so the supply of quality, white meat chicken used in our products is more readily available for dog treats. The factories are under stringent safety and sanitary guidelines and monitored by a dedicated team of quality control inspectors, who are in the plants where the products are being produced. The benefit to our consumers is a premium dog treat at an affordable price."

Stringent safety and sanitary guidelines, monitored by quality control inspectors, my ass!

Of course I pulled out Jack's package of treats and sure enough, right there it says 'product of China'.

Guess I should have paid closer attention before, but suffice it to say, he is now enjoying chicken Chewies and turkey/pumpkin treats which are a product of the good ol USA!!

Jack

Jack is resting....but notice his leg dangling? Silly boy.

The cost of going Green

From L. Rockwell~~


Some facts:
1) Wind was 17 times higher than the cost of nuclear power
2) Wind was 5 times higher than the cost of coal power
3) Solar was 31 times higher than the cost of nuclear power
4) Solar was 9 times higher than the cost of coal power

As of 3/29/2011 Nuclear power generated 13.5% of all world electricity and solar a mere 0.6%.

Germany: Our Green Energy FutureMay 2, 2012 6:53 am
Every year 600,000 households (2 million people) are getting their power switched off in Germany because they can’t afford the skyrocketing electric bills. At that rate the country (population 80 million) will become blacked-out like North Korea by 2050.
It’s one way of reducing carbon emissions – just catapult your population back to the Stone Age.

Online German flagship daily Die Welt has an article on how skyrocketing electricity prices are making electricity unaffordable for a large number of Germans.…Over 10 years ago Germany enacted the Renewable Energy Feed-In Act (EEG) which requires power companies to pay small producers of renewable energy exorbitant rates for their green power. The power companies in turn simply pass the higher prices on to their customers. Electricity prices rose 10% in 2011 alone!

Meanwhile in the USA:Renewable “Green” energy source requirements (2010 reports) have increased costs, on average 32%:
1) 29 states have adopted new standards including DC and Puerto Rico
2) Residential rate increases = 31.9% higher than in remaining 21 other states
3) Industrial rate increases = 30.7% higher
4)Commercial rate increases = 27.4% higher

This doesn't include coal fired electricity plant closures, coal mine closures and EPA regulations restricting everything conventional energy producing. Family budgets will definitely feel the pinch of "Green energy" costs.

God Bless America ;)

WRONG! THIS MAKES ME PHYSICALLY ILL

 

Doctors Feed Aborted Girls to Dogs

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, May 23, 2012

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY APPALLING!


Doctors in Beed, India are reportedly feeding aborted girls to dogs to hide evidence they are doing sex-selection abortions.
LifeNews reported:

In a news story that sounds like it is more out of bad science fiction movie than reality, a newspaper in India reports doctors in one city are so desperate to hide evidence that they are doing sex-selection abortions that they are feeding the remains of aborted girl babies to dogs.

Spme physicians in the city of Beed, India are engaging in the practice, according toIndia Today, which spoke with Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, an NGO working against the practice. Maharashtra’s Public Health Minister Suresh Shetty also admitted to the newspaper that he had heard of reports of the practice taking place.

“A person even saw a foetus being fed to the animals. This is known to everyone in Beed, but the police are not taking action as Munde is influential,” Deshpande said.

She added that some other doctors in Beed kept dogs for the same purpose – to avoid the hassle of disposing of the bodies.

Health Minister Shetty said: “I have heard of the practice but have no evidence.”

He added that since the local police seemed to be under a lot of “pressure”, he had decided to ask the crime branch to investigate the latest case.

Gallup released an abortion poll today. It revealed 41% of Americans now identify themselves as “pro-choice.” This is down from 47% from last July and is one percentage point below the previous record low in Gallup trends.

Our Tea Bagging' prez.






Oh, lookie here!!! A photo from 1997 of our dear idiot in chief, marching in a July 4th parade in Chicago ! Breitbart.com has the story today.

Please note the Gadsen flag, 'don't tread on me' at the right. Remember when Odumbo made fun of the Tea Party? Hahaha. WHERE has this photo been? Looks like a "tea nagger" to me!

Memorial Day Weekend

As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of groceries towards my car, I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a lady sitting inside the car, with the door open.


The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car, and continued to watch the old gentleman from about twenty five feet away.

I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming too, and took a few steps towards him.

I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something. The young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac Escalade. He then turned back to the old man. I heard him yell at the old gentleman saying:

'You shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car at your age.' And then with a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking lot.

I saw the old gentleman pull out his handkerchief, and mop his brow as he went back to his car and again looked at the engine.

He then went to his wife and spoke with her; he appeared to tell her it would be okay. I had seen enough, and I approached the old man. He saw me coming and stood straight, and as I got near him I said, 'Looks like you're having a problem.'

He smiled sheepishly, and quietly nodded his head. I looked under the hood myself, and knew that whatever the problem was, it was beyond me. Looking around, I saw a gas station up the road, and I told the old man that I would be right back. I drove to the station and went I inside. I saw three attendants working on cars. I approached one of them, and related the problem the old man had with his car. I offered to pay them if they could follow me back down and help him.

The old man had pushed the heavy car under the shade of a tree and appeared to be comforting his wife. When he saw us he straightened up and thanked me for my help. As the mechanics diagnosed the problem (overheated engine), I spoke with the old gentleman.

When I shook hands with him earlier, he had noticed my Marine Corps ring and had commented about it, telling me that he had been a Marine too. I nodded and asked the usual question, 'What outfit did you serve with?'

He said that he served with the first Marine Division at Guadalcanal Pelieliu, and Okinawa.

He had hit three of the worst ones, and retired from the Corps after the war was over. As we talked we heard the car engine come on and saw the mechanics lower the hood. They came over to us as the old man reached for his wallet, but was stopped by me. I told him I would just put the bill on my AAA card.

He still reached for the wallet and handed me a card that I assumed had his name and address on it, and I stuck it in my pocket. We all shook hands all around again, and I said my goodbye's to his wife.

I then told the two mechanics that I would follow them back up to the station. Once at the station, I told them that they had interrupted their own jobs to come along with me and help the old man. I said I wanted to pay for the help, but they refused to charge me.

One of them pulled out a card from his pocket, looking exactly like the card the old man had given to me. Both of the men told me then that they were Marine Corps Reserves. Once again we shook hands all around and as I was leaving, one of them told me I should look at the card the old man had given to me. I said I would and drove off.

For some reason I had gone about two blocks, when I pulled over and took the card out of my pocket and looked at it for a long, long time. The name of the old gentleman was on the card in golden leaf and under his name was written: 'Congressional Medal of Honor Society.'
I sat there motionless, looking at the card and reading it over and over. I looked up from the card and smiled to no one but myself and marveled that on this day, four Marines had all come together because one of us needed help. He was an old man all right, but it felt good to have stood next to greatness and courage, and an honor to have been in his presence.

Remember, as we approach another Memorial Day, OLD men like him gave you, and all of us, FREEDOM for America.
Thanks to those who served and still serve, and to all of those who supported them, and who continue to support them.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall.

If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Remember, Freedom isn't Free. Thousands have paid the price, so that you can enjoy what you have today.
LET'S DO THIS: JUST 19 WORDS:
GOD OUR FATHER, WALK THROUGH MY HOUSE AND TAKE AWAY ALL MY WORRIES; AND PLEASE WATCH OVER AND HEAL MY FAMILY; AND PLEASE PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS, AND WATCH OVER OUR TROOPS, WHO ARE DEFENDING THOSE FREEDOMS. AMEN



Twins!

Newly delivered baby moose twins. Adorable.

CRIME

‘THIS IS FOR YOU, WHITE B–CH’: WOMAN ALLEGEDLY ATTACKED WHILE ORDERING LUNCH AT COLO. MCDONALD’S

Woman Attacked Ordering Lunch at a Mcdonalds Drive Thru in Colorado | This is For You, White B  ch

(Photo: AP)

A Colorado woman was reportedly attacked by three African-Americans while ordering lunch at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Colorado recently, after she asked one of the alleged attackers not to leave her trash in the parking lot.

“I witnessed this young lady throwing trash out of her car and all I said was that it wasn’t cool,” Shannon, the woman who was seemingly assaulted, explained.

Before she knew it, she said, the woman and her female friend lunged at her, punching her face and pulling her hair through the car’s open window. Then, in the midst of the confusion, a man interjected himself into the fight, throwing a soda at her.

“This is for you, you white b–ch! This is a grape soda,” he reportedly said before taking off.

As for the women, Shannon recalled: “She was right in my window just punching me in my face, pulling my hair…She started biting on my hands so severely. I thought she was gonna bite ‘em off actually.”

Via the blaze.

Every day lately, I have been reading stories like this. Ever since the Trayvon Martin story, things have escalated. In Dallas, over the weekend, a young white girl was randomly stabbed in the back at a Target store, by a black guy. She didn't know the guy..no words were exchanged. He just stabbed her and walked away. It's black on white random crimes happening every day, randomly . Be careful!

The protection of Mom

A friend of mine, from a forum I belong to, was telling about what happened this weekend. Her little dog, Lucy, was outside in the Greenbelt, when my friend suddenly heard start barking loudly and yelping. She goes running over to see what had Lucy so upset...only to find an angry mama deer literally on top of Lucy. My friend screamed which chased the deer off.......but later, she decided to take a closer look and figure out what had the deer so angry. The picture above is what she discovered. Aww.......mama protecting her baby.

Big and Fancy

Friday night~~we were invited to a get together with some people from church. It was to be held at one of the couple's home. Wow. Have you ever driven through a very elite neighborhood, have seen ├╝ber huge homes and wondered what the owners possibly do with all the space?? Well, I admit, I have. Last night, my curiosity was satisfied. The house is 9,000 square feet AND there is a guest house that is 1400 square feet. A courtyard, pool, spa and incredibly huge patio connect the main house to the guest house. Anyway, yes, the house is beautiful. I do not know how many bathrooms, because, honestly, I lost count. I will say, however, they have a huge butlers pantry, a silver room (yeah, I don't know), exercise room, a kitchen larger than anyone could possibly need, a sitting room that preceded every room, two huge staircases to the second floor, gorgeous hardwood floors throughout, ceilings that were at LEAST 20 feet high, and two other rooms I am not sure what they use them for. Wondering how many people live in this home? TWO.
All I could think while touring their home, was I am pretty sure they only use the master bedroom/bath, kitchen and living room number 1. So, why does anyone need or want 9,000 square feet?? Crazy.


Saturday~~today was topless day in Dallas (Jeeps), and there was a meet up arranged for Jeepers at a popular place called Kellers Hamburger Drive In. We thought we'd check it out, so pulled our sorely neglected Jeep out of the parking garage and went down there. There were probably close to 20 Jeeps there, and it was fun to look at all the modifications people have done.
There are no off road places in Dallas without traveling an hour and a half out of the city, and even then, because there are no BLM lands here, any off roading places are done only on private property with the approval of the owner......and only after purchasing an annual off road sticker from the state, and also paying the owner a permit fee. Needless to say, we have not yet done that. I do miss Jeeping though!!!!

The picture below taken today of a couple of the Jeeps there. At first glance you may think that's our blue Jeep, right????
Nope. Haha. Here is our poor little Jeep. Ours was definitely the oldest one there, but I guarantee our Jeep can climb the big rocks with the best of them. She just needs a new coat of paint. :)

That's been our weekend thus far.

A little Saturday stupidity

And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support.

Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV.

The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old.

Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.

Back in 2009 when Hatchett was in court to answer charges that many of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.

The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. He hasn't broken any laws, according to the report.

What a stupid individual. Actually, the women are not so bright either. The victims are the children...and then they will be future welfare recipients.

NATO Summit...Chicago

Some pictures taken tonight of Chicago. The NATO summit is this weekend and looks like there is a strong presence of officers...and protestors.

 

They're on bicycles.

On foot.

And on horseback.

Could be an interesting weekend.

The Hollywood Elite...no clue, Whatsoever

Awww, the liberal Hollywood crowd, or at least this idiot in particular, shows how ignorant and out of the loop he really is. He loves this country and is willing to pay his fair share......until facts come into play.


Will Smith: I have no issue with paying taxes and whatever needs to be done for my country to grow. I believe very firmly that my ability to sit here—I’m a black man who didn’t go to college, yet I get to travel around the world and sell my movies, and I believe very firmly that America is the only place on Earth that I could exist. So I will pay anything that I need to pay to keep my country growing. . . .

Interviewer: Do you know how much in France you would have to pay on earnings above one million euros [under new French President Francois Hollande's proposal]? Not 30%. 75%.

Smith: 75?! Yeah, that’s different, that’s different. Yeah, 75. Well, you know, God bless America.

What an idiot. I will have to add his name to the 'never watch anymore movies by this guy' list.

Dallas

 

Two days before I left for my two weeks in Colorado, Amanda and Tyler visited us. We had a great time hitting some of Amanda's favorite Dallas spots, but we also discovered an awesome little area called Bishops Art District. We have driven by the area many times but having never gotten off the main drag, we had missed this cute little tucked away district. Little shops and cafes on just two streets....unique vintage shops, an unusual fudge factory.....and the vintage bottle shop! That's where Amanda snapped this picture.

The store carries sodas with old labels, like Creme soda, grape and orange. The kids spent forever in the shop which is how they stumbled upon the restroom with its wild and colorful decor. I love the picture!

Guess I should locate a picture of the kids, too. It was fun having them here. We even took them to our favorite sushi restaurant!

Elke's warning; Really LISTEN to her !!!





She was born under Hitler, raised under the USSR's sovereignty in East Germany, and came to America as a young adult.

Economy, Bennie and Greece

From the Washington Post today:

"Several members of the Federal Reserve’s policymaking committee said they would consider expanding efforts to stimulate the U.S. economy if threats to the recovery worsen, according to minutes of the panel’s April meeting.

Officials cited several factors, including tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect in January that could limit the economic recovery, according to records of their discussion released Wednesday. Tax increases you say? Color me surprised, not.







Pers

" If the problem appears politically intractable at the end of this summer or even sooner, Sinai said, “I can almost guarantee you our stock market will have a major sell-off.”

Rewind time-----On March 13 of this year,, Bernanke said the following about Greece and Europe:

According to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, it's no big deal for the U.S. The man who famously assured us in 2007 that the subprime lending crisis was "likely to be contained," now vows that he'll protect the "U.S. financial system and the economy" from Europe's mess. Yeah, uh, right, Bennie.


And in April:

Bernanke also said that European governments had taken a number of constructive policy actions aimed at solving their debt crisis. And he said the mild recession in Europe should not have a big impact on the U.S. recovery. Mild recession?? Good Lord. Does he really think we are that stupid?


Which is it, Bend over Bernanke?? Never mind. We really don't need your wise input or advice, because anyone with half a brain can see where we're heading. Hello economy? Meet cliff.

 

Obama's world ain't so wonderful Lately

From gateway pundit:

Rev. Jeremiah Wright: Barack Obama Has Done Nothing For Black Community (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 7:37 PM



Ouch. Barack Obama’s former pastor and mentor Jeremiah Wright told author Ed Klein ofThe Amateur that Barack Obama has done nothing for the black community. Wright also said Obama was selected. Klein played the audio today on the Sean Hannity radio show.


Wright is right. Barack Obama owns the highest black unemployment rate in 27 years.

Ed Klein also said Jeremiah Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce his “Islamic background.” Klein also has this on tape.

5/16/2012

Ouch!!

WOW!! That's a pretty strong statement coming from a hard left, anti-American! I believe what he's saying though. Have you looked at Obama's body count lately? He's making Clinton look like a saint.

Noam Chomsky: “When Obama Administration Decides They Don’t Like Somebody, They Murder Them” (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 2:55 PM







When you’re a committed leftist and you lose Noam Chomsky, you know you’re in trouble.

Anti-American author and leftist Noam Chomsky told reporters this week,
“If the Obama administration decides they don’t like somebody, they murder them.”

Iranian Press TV reported:

Noam Chomsky has slammed US drone strikes and said while the Bush administration kidnapped and tortured, present-day White House resorts to murder.

“If Bush, the Bush administration, didn’t like somebody, they’d kidnap them and send them to torture chambers,” the renowned American scholar told Democracy Now on Monday.

“If the Obama administration decides they don’t like somebody, they murder them, so you don’t have to have torture chambers all over,” he said.

Chomsky also criticized Obama team for the extrajudicial murder of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born cleric, in Yemen in a drone strike.

“He (Awlaki) was killed. The guy next to him was killed. Shortly after, his son was killed. Now, there was a little talk about the fact that he was an American citizen: you shouldn’t just murder American citizens.” Chomsky commented.

“But, you know, the New York Times headline, for example, when he was killed, said something like ‘West celebrates death of radical cleric,” he continued.

“First of all, it wasn’t death, it was murder. And the West celebrates the murder of a suspect. He’s a suspect, after all. There was something done almost 800 years ago called the Magna Carta, which is the foundation of Anglo-American law, that says that no one shall be subjected to a violation of rights without due process of law and a fair and speedy trial. It doesn’t say, if you think somebody’s a suspect, you should kill them,” Chomsky stressed.
