Call the GOP Senators & Reps NOW. Tells them do NOT pass the clean Bill. It is imperative the more people who call the better the chance of keeping them from going forward. Perhaps it will not stop them, but it is better to try than to sit back and only complain!

Call your Senators & Representatives. Tell them to vote NO on a clean Bill for DHS. Tell the Senators to enact the Nuclear Option. Pass the damn thing. Let Obama Veto it & TAKE THE HEAT. Tell The GOP We put you there & We can take you out. This is more than shutting down DHS which it will NOT. This is about preserving the Constitution and our core. They do listen if enough people push. PUSH!

Many years ago, the wife of a member of the orchestra at the Miss Kansas Pagent gave birth to a baby, not knowing she was pregnant. She was obese and her menustral cycle was not only irregular, it was virtually non-existant. We Chaperones and Pagent Officials made donations to buy just the basics, as they had NOTHING to bring the baby home to. This was the first time I or all of us had ever heard of such a thing, and we all were leary that it could happen.
However, since that time, untold numbers of incidents have been and are reported, and it is NOT uncommon. The old “walk a mile in her mocassins” adage certainly applies here.

Good Morning RJJ-Hold that thought. I think we’ll see a few others drop out (please, Dear God, please) for the good of the country..damn few unfortunately. Most of them think they are the answer to our prayers for a winnable candidate, “winnable” being the operative word. The next drop out will hopefully be Jeb, followed by Christie, followed by…. I have to go now and soak in a tub of ice. My temp must have risen to a dangerous level and it’s effecting my thinking. Ronnie, is that you?

Interesting, didn’t I read high school students now graduate with a seventh grade reading level skill and our PINO (President In Name Only) Obama’s SOTU was at a ninth grade reading level? AANNHHHH!! Buzzer-you’re out! A disconnect by two levels of reading skills..I’m betting the low-information voters do NOT read/comprehend at a seventh grade level. If only NOT knowing the Painted Desert was the ONLY knowlege missing from people’s cognitive data base. The U.S. would not have had to suffer through two terms of pure, unadulterated Hell, courtesy of dummies and Democrats. What’s wrong with me…I stated an oxymoronic phrase.
Good Morning to you RJJ- Here’s another take on the subject-Some people Follow the likes of Westboro and loads of Democrats and Liberals to track them & see what they are Tweeting so they can counter their Tweets. You don’t have to Follow someone to do this but it insures you don’t miss any..just a thought. I Follow some people I am 180° politically or morally aligned with just so I can refute their Tweets…or ignore them depending upon the day (i.e. whether they are worth the effort! LOL!)

Hi RJJ-Did you blink a little faster when Bambi’s Mom got killed the first time you saw THAT movie? LOL That’s reaching back a long ways!
I think there are things besides movies that make men tear up. For example, when the U.S. Hockey team received the Gold Medal for winning over Russia, and they were playing the Star Spangled Banner, with Old Glory waving in the breeze? Or when they played the variations of the singing of the National Anthem from across the country, ending with Whitney Houston going higher and higher with each chorus, hitting every note without sliding or screaming, at the dedication of the refurbishing of the Statue of Liberty under the helm of Ronnie Reagan?
Some guys wept openly & unashamedly when NumbNuts was RE-Elected as President. Some guys (and gals) are still weeping.
I don’t think they make movies or movie stars like they used to. I miss those days. Oh, they don’t make Presidents like they used to either.

Hi Mr. The-Monk Obama’s narcissistic ego no doubt wouldn’t let him attend the rally with the other 44 World Leaders because HIS presence would detract from them. When Michelle stated she hadn’t ever been proud of the United States until her husband was elected, or words to that effect, I was appalled, along with millions of others. NOW I can honestly say, “Michelle, I have never been ashamed of my country, UNTIL your husband was elected.” Obama gives chicken manure a bad name.

Any word, idea, cartoon, or whatever media that is published runs the risk of offending someone or group of somebodies. Free speech is not free. But paying the price with 12 lives is not only oh so far too high, it is incomprehensible. May God have mercy on their innocent souls.
And may the United states WAKE UP and see what unacceptable behavior and actions Islam, the Quran, and Sharia Law are bringing to our country. Islam and democracy are incompatible. Sharia Law and the Constitution canNOT co-exist. And this does not only apply to extremists-it applies to all of Islam.
So, where is the hue and cry from the Muslims that say they are NOT extremists?
Their silence is deafening.

Hi RJJ- The Officer was probably just getting the H out of Dodge. Capt Billy avoided the press at all costs-which is why they, CHP, have Public Affairs Officers-people who supposedly do NOT put their feet in their mouth OR step in it. As a man of “few words” and “quick stepped” (and small feet,) he did neither. His motto was “What was NOT said couldn’t be mis-quoted, most of the time.” LOL
mscaptbilly, Sorry to have probably missed you again. A short time after posting this my son got me to go into town with him to help with his horse sized dog. Just getting back to it now. Yeah, I can understand your husband's reasoning for that. My usual answer and as I had been ordered to give was to contact 'so and so' at PAO. Gave them the number and address if requested, and was as courteous as possible.

The issue is 60% of We The People want Boehner out as Speaker while 25% don’t, according to the latest Polls. SO, why aren’t the Members of Congress LISTENING TO and VOTING to reflect what WTP want? That’s the whole problem in a nutshell. Congress forgets who they work for-they work for WTP.
We put them there & we can take them out. Unfortunately, WTP also forget that. Too many WTP do NOT keep in touch with Reps & Senators, telling them what, who, why, and how to vote. Believe it or not, they do count the number of Pro and Con replies and contacts they receive on the issues.
IF The House GOP’s were listening to WTP, Boehner would be defeated by 60% of GOP Reps, provided WTP contacted their Reps & said “Boehner must go!” We can but try.

Not necessarily. Self preservation due to lack of choice could kick in, not being co-opted. It could be they don’t see the choices as being good, or having a chance to win, and their “Nay” vote putting them on that proverbial “list.”
January 5, 2015 at 11:42am
I must agree with Ablindmule. I do like Louie, but he doesn’t have the finesse that is required to bring the Party together to pass legislation. And that’s necessary. Trey Gowdy is a much better choice in that he’s highly respected, not only w/the GOP but also by the Democrats. The problem is he’s said No.”
January 5, 2015 at 11:36am
This will prove to be interesting. Will GOP’s have the courage to actually vote against Boehner when it comes down to the wire..when they have to SAY “NAY” to Boehner or “AYE” to someone else? Either way, their name is on a proverbial list IF Boehner is re-elected, and I believe THIS pesky little item is what they are weighing. Yoho has about as much chance as that “snowball” and I question Gohmert’s ability to bind the House GOP’s, no matter how hard he would try. I fear that will be the deciding factor. (I love Louie, but he does have his short-comings and his inability to finesse is one of them..a much needed skill in order to get legislation for WTP passed.) Stay tuned, with any luck, someone will nominate Trey Gowdy!
Trey Gowdy will not run. He is right where he wants to be but whether he votes for Boehner remains to be seen. The positive thing is the vote is public so we will know who everyone voted for and come their re-election, they will have to face the music.

Hi RJJ..trolls seem to smell out where they aren’t wanted, don’t they? Happy New Years!!

Any one that has 35,000 employees and turns their back on them, does NOT talk to them, but takes a loaded shot on national TV is not only a fool, but a piss-poor Manager & boss, regrdless of who did what. He has NO managerial skills and his mouth has over-loaded his A..nkles.
 January 4, 2015 at 11:01pm
Thank you The-Monk. So good to see you, too. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. May you have the very best of 2015..from me to you.

de Blassio needs to put a STOP to all of this. APOLOGIZE. Put it to bed. Then let the NYPD begin to heal from the lack of support from their boss. But it has to stop and they have to move on, with the Mayor being the one to make the first step.
Only then will relations with police all over the country just start to change. But not until then. It’s not hard to figure out, di Blassio. Swallow your stupidity, your false pride, and just do it!
Good to see you again MsCaptBilly... Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
Talk is cheap, he is going to have to walk the walk and I'm not sure he can. Be interesting tho, gotta admit.
That will never happen. That would require him to admit he made a mistake and that he will not do.
He didn't do anything wrong, and he must not apologize because that would lend apparent validity the cops' infantile delusion that they have a legitimate gripe.

One time yrs ago, Capt. Billy & I were sitting in the airport in Auckland, NZ when the table next to us seem to have trouble with a little girl, Molly. Molly coudn’t keep her hands off Aunt Betty’s purse. After 5 or 6 times of telling Molly to “Now, Now, leave Aunt Betty’s purse alone!” Molly fell on the floor, rolled under MY chair, and proceeded to throw a kicking tantrum. I turned and gave the parents the “old eagle eye” to which they absolutely ignored me. After about what seemd like the 1000th kick, I started to rise from my seat, and was going to take matters into my hands. Although being foreigners, not knowing laws, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do. The Mother saw me start to rise and JUMPED up and came over to my chair, bent down and said, “Now, Now, Molly”…I interrupted her and very loudy said..”IF that was my kid, I’d get a BIG STICK!” She raised up, looked at me, bent down, grabbed Molly in one swell swoop, and they all moved about 6 tables over. You can rest assured they followed my every movement until it was time to leave for our boarding area. That was over 20 years ago and Molly would be in her late 20′s or early 30′s now. If she has children, I PRAY Molly’s kids turn out just like her as her punishment, because she got ZILCH from her parents.
