Alan Grayson Gets Some Medicine

Posted by Nancy on September 30, 2010

Earlier this week Florida congressman Alan Grayson, probably the most execrable member of the House of Representatives, released an attack ad against his opponent calling him “Taliban Dan” and showing a clip where Dan Webster quoted a Biblical passage telling women to submit to their husbands. That Daniel Webster must be a real woman hater!

Only thing is, when shown in context, Webster was advising men NOT to use that passage, but to worry about their own responsibilities to their family and let their wives take care of theirs. Totally opposite of the ad’s message.

Now Townhall has made a fake ad using Mr. Grayson’s modus operandi.  Nothing like a taste of one’s own medicine.  Hope you enjoy it, because I don’t think Alan Grayson will.

Vote as if Your Life Depends on it

Posted by Nancy on September 23, 2010

There has been no more important election in my lifetime than the one we are facing this November.

We must work together to get out the Conservative vote – grass roots organizers from the right. The Constitution’s governing powers must be restored and respected.

After November we must remain diligent to ensure the new Congressional members do not become corrupted by Washington. They must govern with integrity or be removed themselves.

Remember in November

Very interesting. When you go to youtube and type in “Mourning in America” and hit enter, it brings up Reagan’s “Morning in America.” When you type it the second time it gives you what you want. I tried it three times with new browser windows – happened every time. A little political mischief going on there?

9/12 March on DC

Posted by necessarygrace on September 13, 2010

Our family attended the 9/12 March on Washington DC again this year. The weather was soggy and there were fewer attendees than last year, but enthusiasm was high. Where last year the frustration was palpable and there was a desperation simply to be heard, this year everyone has November 2nd on their minds and people are ready for real change.

If you’ve never been to a Tea Party/ Conservative rally, I’d encourage you to go. Across the board the people are friendly and the sense of American pride and community is invigorating. And if you have kids, it’s an excellent educational opportunity too. A few pictures from our day:

Never Forget

Posted by necessarygrace on September 11, 2010

Its name has been changed from Cordoba House to “Park 51”.

Its purpose has morphed from a place for Muslims to worship to a “community center” “Like a YMCA” where people of all faiths would supposedly meet.

And though the planners chose the site because of its proximity to Ground Zero, now they and their supporters say it is “blocks away.”

Watch this video.

Do you see the building in the background? It’s the Burlington Coat Factory. Does that look “blocks away” to you? It is covered in dust and ashes, a rescue worker is standing in front of it.

Now look at this map:

348 FEET. That’s how close the nearest remains were found. It is possible there are more remains even closer that may be disturbed when/if construction begins around the Burlington Coat Factory site.

Today we remember what happened nine years ago. We remembered all those who were lost. We remember all who have died in the years since fighting for our freedom and security. And remember who it is we are fighting. They are terrorists. They accomplish their purposes by pretending to be what they are not; by lying to everyone around them. They hate us simply because we are Americans.

On CNN last week, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf told Americans:

If we do move [the community center to another location],” Rauf continued, “it will strengthen the argument of the radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country.”

“If this is not handled correctly, this crisis could become much bigger than the Danish cartoon crisis, which resulted in attacks on Danish embassies in various parts of the Muslim world,” Rauf said later. “…. If we don’t handle this crisis correctly it could become something which could really become very, very, very dangerous indeed.”

Definiton of a Terrorist: Somebody using violence for political purposes: somebody who uses violence, especially bombing, kidnapping, and assassination, to intimidate others, often for political purposes

Tell me again how “moderate” Mr. Rauf is. How his purpose in building this supposed community center is “peaceful” and meant to “unite” us. Seeing is believing. All I see are lies, obfuscations, threats and intimidations. Never Forget – what happened nine years ago today, and who was behind it.

And People Wonder Why I Don’t Want the Government In Charge of My Health Care

Posted by E. on September 1, 2010

First, I have to say that I don’t send my children to government schools (aka public schools), so you may think this shouldn’t matter to me.  But it does.  It does matter.  It matters because it is just another example of the crap you get when you put the government in charge of some program – any program.

“And what,” you ask, “is the crap to which you refer now?”

Doughnuts.  Doughnuts for breakfast.

Today’s mail brought a full-color, magazine-type mailer from our local government school district that talked about all the recent goings on, new things for this year, and reasons for which the administrators should all break their arms patting themselves on the back.

One of these reasons is their “universal breakfast program” which is being expanded, on a trial basis, to the high school.  Apparently they’ve been feeding their elementary and middle school students free garbage since the 2008-09 school year.  The district’s Director of Dining Services said, “We know that a nutritious breakfast increases our students’ ability to learn.”

Why then, I ask, does your “cold breakfast” include the option of doughnuts?  In what universe is that considered nutritious?

Specifically, the article in the mailer says a cold breakfast includes: milk, two breads, or one bread and one protein, along with fresh fruit or 100% fruit juice.  It further explains that a serving of cereal or a donut is equal to one bread, a bagel equals two breads, string cheese or yogurt is equal to one protein, a breakfast sandwich is one bread and one protein, and the ever-nutritious peanut butter and jelly wafer (what is that, even?) equals one bread and one protein.

And how many sugars?  Hmmmmm?  How many sugars does each one of those things equal?  I’ll tell you:  a boatload.

So, assuming kids go for the cold breakfast (I won’t bore you with the details of the hot breakfast option, but it couldn’t be more processed and carb laden were it made with the Mr. Wizard Science Kit: AP Version, rolled in a mountain of white flour, and deep fried in a vat of MSG) . . . so assuming kids go for the cold breakfast option, what do you suppose they are going to get?  My bet is on:  milk, two doughnuts and the required juice or fruit, which will wind up in the trash.

The fruit/juice will wind up in the trash because by the time they’ve downed the milk and doughnuts (we all know milk goes much better with doughnuts than juice) their blood sugar levels will have spiked to the point that the idea of fruit/juice makes them want to hurl.

And then?  You’ll have a lot of grumpy second period teachers.  Because?  That is when everyone’s blood sugar will crash and all those students stuffed full of their United States Department of Agriculture subsidized doughnuts will go to sleep.

And people wonder why I don’t want the government in charge of my health care.  They can’t even figure out what “nutritious” means.

Although, I suppose, they are guaranteeing themselves a crapload of future patients.
