America - the Right Way!! Staying Vigilant
here, there and across the globe | July 5, 2011 | Freepers of good heart everywhere

Posted on 07/05/2011 5:23:29 AM PDT by Jemian

Good morning! It is a new month and a new thread! I hope everyone had an enjoyable Fourth of July, celebrating the founding of these United States, a glorious experiment in world government.

The National March by Sousa, conducted by Bernstein

May God bless America again.

It seems so and it seems to be working. This is a bit of an oblique attack. As if other news companies are lily-pure.

Romney is the liberal pick for the republican party. The key to defeating that is in New England. That was where, last election cycle, they selected John McCain. Have the pubbies done anything to insure that the libs won't be pretending their republicans again? Are libs still going to declare that they are pubbies and vote in the primaries?

Good morning, All. We're starting off today at my house with a brunch as our german brother and his family breeze in. They're coming from the Atlanta airport and will be heading to a resort in South Carolina. So, on their way they'll fit in a visit here. (Our house is NOT "on the way". This will add about 8 extra hours to their travel time.)

I have done everything to get into the new site, use the right name lysie gave me and just can not get in. Needless to say I miss ya’ll. sometimes change is not good if yor get my drift.

The Christian camp Allie went to has asked her to come back next yeay to help them. This kid has her head on straight. Her grades are that she will get in at the top of the list.
Of course I take credit for her smartness and the kids go along with me cause I am old.

I shall retire to get another cup of coffe, watch the news some more which makes me mad and sad.

I’m sorry that you can’t get into the new site. We can carry on here and I’ll relay (sporadically because I am not consistent) your news to them.

I am so proud of Allie. That is quite something that the camp has requested her to return. They must really like her. You are right to be proud of her; you have helped raise her and you raised her right!

We’re having company here in a few minutes and this afternoon I have a visit with a cardiologist. Must be boat payment time.

Hi all! I’ve been sik with pneumonia since the end of June, was sick for my birthday, too sick to go to church, etc.

Meanwhile, my Dad calls me sick as a dog and asks me to find my neice who lives with him to tell her to come home. He ended up being ambulanced to the hospital. We live 162 miles away and i was too sick to drive to him. Too scary it was.

Glad to catch up with y’all. I haven’t worked in 3 weeks.

Of course they will. Goes without saying. Whatever it takes, legal or illegal.

Enjoy your German brother and family.

We had a great visit. Everything went very smoothly and no family fights. Yay!

This afternoon was spent at a cardiologist office. Last Tues. I had an EKG at a doc-in-the-box and he referred me to the cardio. The visit started out with me filling out enough papers to choke a goat. Then, I had an echocardiogram done. Finally, after waiting, I met with the doc himself. It was a good visit. He voted conservative and agrees -— NEVER AGAIN! When I said, “Palin/Cain”, he said, “ANYBODY BUT ...” The problem is, for him, the current climate has put this state-of-the-art cardio facility out of business. He’ll continue in another venue.

I still have to do a stress test in two weeks to measure blood flow. But the EKG and ECG are both fine, normal and nothing to change.

Basically, I am over-stressed and need to trust God better.

You are correct. The muslim in Our whitehouse is a worst diaster than any tornado, hurricane, WWI, WWII, Korea, Grenada, VietNam, Iraq and Afphaganistan I, put together. He is a true destroyer to this country. God save us from this piece of destruction.

WE ARE FINALLY GETTING SOME RAIN IN CENTRAL TEXAS, YIPPEE. How long it lasts?????, but am thankful for what we are getting at this moment. We truly need it. We’ve been without rain for at least 35 days and every thing here is suffering, especially the wild animals.

THE JURY SYSTEMS WORKS!! Casy Anthony was not found guilty because the facts just not there. The Jury acted with what they had.

Only one thing is important now, pray for Casy. I just hate she stepped away from her parents and u you know that they hurt. All things are possible with God, he sure is my main stay, he guides my every step.

The kids will not let me drive, I am sure I can and be safe at it but, they just want let me. Every weedend one of the three take to me to my church, they go a church where their pastor is their own age and my pastor is older, more to my liking.

Now, for my last cup of coffe and get ready to face the day.

It finally happened. I missed 2 each door-knocks today. I didn't hear them. So I finally put up the sign that says "Hearing Impaired, KNOCK LOUDLY".

I wouldn't care, but I'm working with this new start-up and I get deliveries, etc... here.

At this point, I believe the only event that is going to save this country from destruction is Divine Intervention. The national electorate is mortally ill.

I hope those grits were tasty this morning! Our weather has been alternating between sunny and hot and rainy. We had a very good gulley-washer here yesterday. So much so that I need to replace some of the mulch in my rose garden. A lot of it got washed down the drive to the front lawn.

My azaleas are big and growing and I’m enjoying the blooms on some of my encore azaleas now. I love blooming things.

Good evening everybody. I have been busy helping with clearing and cutting wood and.....JUNIPER (ugh!).... off the property, not enough energy at the end of the day to post much. But things are well.....temps are cool here....and God is good.

The other day when pulling juniper (ugh!) I was pulling hard and as it sometimes does, it released all of a sudden and I went over backward.

Of course I was standing on a slope which made it worse and while I was tumbling head-over-apple-cart all I could think of was you, John and think to myself. “I hope there isn’t a sharp stump that I’ll land on”. Luckily, I rolled with the fall and no harm was done.

We are finished with the juniper (ugh!) though. Mr. Prairie rented a Bobcat and that has made ALL the difference. Now we are working on falling dead trees and limbs. We won’t finish this year but we made a heckuva dent in it.

I have the same trouble. I wear hearing aides but heck, when I’m in the kitchen and the tv is on in there and the living room I don’t hear squat. My friends just come on in, but I have a note on the door and at our local Fed EX and UPS to just leave whatever behind the screen door and I’ll eventually find it.

Yay! Best not to bust internal organs in a slip-fall.

Funny you mention that. Kiddo (64) across the street said my recounting of the tale was nightmare material. I never saw it as that.

Waking up with a Navajo woman in charge didn't change my opinion, until I said yatahe... And then she explained me how I would live.

Not much different from what I was raised with... Be good, be right. be strong.

It could have been worse, I could have woke up speaking russian. spacebo, tovarich.... etc....

Yes it was a tragic morning yesterday. I kept having to remind myself that we are no longer the leader in manned space flight and it ended instantly overnight with wheel stop. If President Bush's vision and plan were still in place we would be full bore on flying again as early as 2013. Right now, there is a 2015 or 2016 date, but it keeps getting pushed back. A LOT can happen in, well, frankly, just a few months, let alone 5 years.

Americans want independent access to the space station. The muslim WILL take the fall for this when more and more of them realize that it was on 'his watch' that we lost this key position in world power that we have enjoyed since it all began.

I have the song from the 60's, "Telstar" by The Astronauts, on my mp3 player and it came on as I rode my bike out from work today, and my throat got real tight and tears flowed.

I feel so helpless to stop this monster and his annihilation of our culture, our society and our Constitution.

Dear God, please help us. Amen.

My brother, I will miss you so much. I have enjoyed your stories for these many years. I was going to nag my husband into heading into the gulf this fall so we could finally meet. That will now be held off until Jesus calls me home or until Christ returns.

I take comfort knowing that you are walking more intimately now with Our Savior than before. You have set us an example which will be hard to emulate. Tell Treva “hello” for us. I look forward to meeting her soon.

Jim Robinson, I looked for Toby’s obit in the paper, but it is too soon. As soon as I can, I’ll send you the details so Gulfcoast6 can be added to the Freeper Memorial Wall.

Rest in Peace, Dear Brother!
