    I don’t hear too much impeachment talk.

    That will never work.

    We’d have Clinton going around sobbing, saying “See....every chance they get the Republicans try to impeach a Democrat President.”

    Obama would have all the celebs....Beyoncé, Kanye West and his little daughter, North West-yes that’s her name....RoseAnn probably....Man it would be a laugh fest. to wait until November when I do think the American people are going to deliver a big message.

    David Brooks said...I paraphrase, but closely: “I used to think the problem was Washington, “ he said during a round table on Meet the Press…”but now I know the problem is…..”.

    Yon reader should guess.


    He really said this. The problem is NOT Washington...but US dolts out here in the country.

    Seriously. He really said this.

    So to my complete surprise David Gregory of Meet the Press shows a video, provided by Israel I must assume, that shows, in front of our lying eyes, rockets being launched from a UN School.

    The guest being interviewed, some Hamas apologizer, was insulted! “David, you do me unfair, showing me this video without preparing me or allowing me to ascertain what is going on.” As I paraphrase.


    This is exactly what Israel has to do, to fight back long and hard against the mighty Arab PR machine.

    The Arabs, or the sons of camels nutjobs within, use an oppressive religion to control the people. It’s why they don’t allow Christians. Christians follow Christ. Christ was a much better human than Mohammad, who especially liked young girls.

    They don’t, and CAN’T have an army. I believe the vast majority of people in the Arab countries would love to have a life like America’s Middle class. Indeed the peoples of every country in the world would like it.

    But there’s no constitution thing and elections throughout the world are suspect, at best. It’s difficult for just ONE person to rise in power to kill and dominate the people but usually it’s a group of some sort.

    It’s the so-called terrorists in the Muslim world, versus the elite sons of camels Saudis who have all the money. The Saudis finance the terrorists all over the world because….well the terrorists control the population. The disgruntled testosterone-fueled populace amongst the oil-wealthy nothing-burgers, those that might rise up and, say, start a constitutional type gubmint, can join a terrorist group and get all that anger out of them system.

    Better shoot rockets at Israel, for no reason, than to maybe take control of their own country, build some roads, start a free gubmint, maybe grown an economy….than to shoot rockets at those that oppress for the luxury they quite like.

    I mean this is the narrative and has been the narrative since Arafat and it will keep on going until Israel boom, just blows that silly little country off the map. What a waste of money and good peoples’ time Palestine is.

    The Arab spin machine is amazing. Man they are able to get people to stand still as they are murdered by mastery of political correctness as people stand still for the burglar’s gunshot lest we insult his abused childhood. They outright buy media outlets….Saudi has a big money investment in Fox News in fact. They come here to America with a grand plan to sign up the prisoners to become so-called “Black Muslims”. They recruit and groom one to be the spokesnoid for their cause.

    That guy is our current President, raised and trained on ascension to purchased power and milking the power for all its worth.

    Somehow this administration is getting all kinds of cash from the sons of camels and no way is their grand experiment going to go public and admonish Israel.

    It will be up to Israel and the American people to finally figure it out and somehow, someway, state they’ve had enough.-

    Morning AB, All.

    I have a terrible week this past.

    But not to worry yon reader, I shall not bore you with the details.

    Today begins a new week and so it shall be better.

    My fine state of Delaware took in 117 of those border kids and trust, my granddaughter will be going to school this fall in a tent. Already it’s 50% immigrants. Now she gets a shoddy education and looks like I did her wrong bringing her here.

    What irks me more than anything...NO ONE CAN STOP THIS?

    Okay, let me shut up.

    Thank you AB, for doing this thread and greetings yon readers.

    Be interesting to see what the talk show crowd does with this subject this week.

    Oh....and the great Arab lying spin machine doesn’t seem to be working so well on the Gaza thing. I see a couple of “Mohammeds” on today so let us see their stupid reasoning as to why they should be bombing a neighboring country.

    In the day of Arafat this nonsense worked.

    Not in this day and age is my thought.

    Fishtalk to Cheerio

    On a small level I am going to agree with you Mr. Cheerio.


    It depends on what happens with the so-called “tea party”. As we all know, the tea party does not exist; it is but an acronym for Middle Class America.

    The left wants to wipe out the middle class. Except I am not sure just how big this tea party/middle class is. I think we’re a pretty big group that, like cats, can’t be herded. They love to mock us only because when they begin mocking this Tea Party....we tend to shrug and think “musta be talking about that guy over there. I’m no racist.”

    So many people might not consider themselves “tea party” but would proudly proclaim themselves to be part of the middle class.

    There’s too many people in a middle class in a country and America has created a most dreaded monster in its vibrant and sprawling middle class. Makes it difficult for dictators and despots and oppressive religions run by sheiks to run and control things.

    I am of a mind that the Ruling class will overstep its bounds just one time too many and this MIDDLE CLASS....not the TEA PARTY but they are one and the same, is going to fight back.

    And, with instant mass communication so easy today, as we drive, or poop or read our Kindles, we can share pics and directions, boom, no problem.

    Hey, maybe it’s a dumb idea but I still say our numbers are mighty. Once the majority of those numbers are offended, be they Republican or Democrat, the middle class will rise up.

    I don’t see any kind of armed rebellion. Maybe a country wide work stoppage....something that will so affect America’s middle class that the vast majority of them are going to flex their muscle.

    If that does not happen, than I agree with you Cheerio, the country will be fundamentally changed. I will always respect the will of the majority but will also always assert to a voice in my country’s political process just as the transgenders of 3% get with all pride and kowtows by Obama. Because the middle class is sure a whole lot more than 3% and we have a right to a voice without being audited and mistreated.

    okay, I’m done.

    I’ve seen their commercials.

    I think they should be a little more aggressive. Like Harry Reid speaks terrible about them, American citizens innocently running a business and employing people.

    If I were a Koch brother or on their Board, I’d suggest a commercial something like this:

    We are the Koch brothers. We run steel mills, coal mines, factories....(and so on). We employed 1.5 million people last year (or whatever). We provide full health care to our full time employees, we deliver needed services, we bring prosperity to local communities and cities.

    We ask that you remember this when Senator Harry Reid insists on going out in public and using his senatorial bully pulpit to bash and debase our business.

    Send your resumes to.....”

    Why don’t some of these businesses do this? Throw it back at them?

    Gregory tells Kerry that THIS is the lowest moment in American-Russian relations. Kerry says OH NO! Then Kerry lists all the things Russia is doing with America....especially on Iran.


    There is no need to tell us all the nice things Russia has done. Downing a civilian airliner is a terrible thing; a prelude to a loss of civilization between nations.

    Then Kerry goes on to tell Russia to step up. Evidently Kerry first repeated the administration line and then tentatively took a little state department stance.

    Then Kerry goes on to speak harshly of Hamas and its constant lobbying of missiles into civilian areas in Israel. He says that there is nothing right about Hamas doing this BUT.....

    There’s always a BUT isn’t there?

    BUT, Kerry says, we need to get a “cease fire” so we can discuss the underlying issues.


    What “underlying issues”? Israel giving the pee poor humanity living on the Gaza strip more land?

    They never stop lying.

    Morning AB, All,

    Hope all is well with yon fellow freepers.

    Last week when the plane fell from the sky and war raged in Israel, I quickly booted up the puter and went right to FreeRepublic.

    I type this with hopes that yon freepers contribute to the freepathon because every once in a while you need FreeRepublic more than you might think.

    Thank you AB for doing this thread. Thank you yon fellow freepers for joining in and offering your many and varied wisdoms.

    Lots on this week but for now, my first ire comes at, guess who?

    President Obama!

    Yeah I know….so what’s new?

    Lookit, for a country to deliberately blow a passenger airline out of the air is an act of war and nothing less.

    And Obama’s at fundraisers and as of yet has refused to even mention Russia in connection with that downed aircraft.

    And if blowing an airplane out of the air ain’t enough, now the Russian sepratists in Ukraine are BUSY MESSING WITH THE BODIES AND WRECKAGE!

    Still, nothing from Obama.

    And how about Israel and Gaza?

    Anybody remember Arafat? He spent years lobbing missiles at Israel as Albright and Hillary kissed his perverted face.

    Just who the hell do those people think they are, since when is lobbing rockets into a neighbor country an okay thing to do?

    I’m hoping that this talk show Sunday is filled with explanations and where America is going with all this.

    Maybe I’ll be surprised and our pathetic president will show some courage.

    One can dream, can’t one?

    Oh my AB is angry with me.

    Well first, I was referring to a comment by Rocklobster as he and another poster on this thread engage in a love fest over the very elite trying to work with the Dems that they too may remain part of the Ruling Class.

    I never thought of you as a RINO lover, AB...never even crossed my mind.

    Hey, I live in purple Delaware....with one county bright red, one light purple, one bluer than an morning sky. In the 12+ years I’ve been living here it’s went from Repub to Dem control and hey, that’s ok. The will of the people and all that.

    I do NOT think that for the party representing me should be changing with the demographic or else they should join the other party. MY principles didn’t change but those I elected DID.

    Still, it’s a matter of degree isn’t it? I’d easily have no issue with a Repub that didn’t oppose abortion (as opposed, say, to one who ENCOURAGED it) but Mike Castle went too far.

    I am reminded of Charlie Crist....say, weren’t we told to trust this guy, that he had to say some things, don’t us worry about how he sounds like forked tongue? So where is Charlie now?

    Say he’s now a Democrat? Who’d a thunk?

    Or Thad okay he won but the pub elite spent millions and right now they’ve got millions from the Chamber of Commerce crowd.

    The middle class, which is mostly us, are mostly happy, law-abiding folk....and we’ve been called names before. Nixon called us the silent majority....a vast wasteland.

    We don’t turn things around quickly out here and la-la land and that might be a good thing. We are in the millions and our power is in our numbers but it’s a power difficult to harness.

    Still I’d argue, with Charlie Crist and Thad Cochran the trend is to slowly but methodically get those Elites out of there.

    Just my two cents and now they’re only worth a penny.

    Mike Castle too was part of this changing trend and he was going to lose soon to a Democrat anyway. I’d argue the base is winning but it’s slow. Yet still today, yay many years after the great Castle throwover we are still out here in la-la land trying to overthrow the elite and hey, it’s one step backward and two steps forward sometimes.

    In the end the numbers will win.

    We got rid of Mike Castle here in Delaware and every day I wake up and am glad he’s gone.

    Given what they did to get Cochran elected will you RINO fans EVER GIVE IT UP?

    No....I don’t care that they get the best offices and committee chairmanships....I don’t care how happy that makes THEM!

    I care that they represent me and every day I am glad that Chris Coons is in there instead of Castle.

    Cause the enemy I know is safer than the enemy who pretends to be my friend.

    I think you are exactly right.

    Every morning Obama gets his marching orders from Michelle and VALJAR. Obama is the public face of the effort to destroy America’s middle class and his job is to go out and say what he’s told to say.

    Meanwhile in the background of course the power behind the throne won’t let this guy go and be photographed at the border. “Whatever you do,” Mooch tells him, “don’t go anywhere near that border.”

    See, if the president says something at first it is viewed as accurate, the truth.

    The administration knows this so he must keep up the public sham and hey, the guy is the absolute BEST at it.

    Only a fool full of himself could act like a jerk, joking about moats and alligators.....and for a while he gets away with it.

    If anything is going to bring this administration down it’s this immigration thing.

    Don’t forget that the Republicans are helping with this destruction of the middle class looking for some crony capitalism money.

    And while most of those imported will vote Democrat, the RINOS espousing this “immigration reform” don’t care. They want their share now, the future be damned.

    So I watched Israeli prime minister Netanyahu talk on Fox News Sunday and he was, as always, very good.


    Back in the day when Hillary and that awful female secretary we had were kiss Arafat’s ass the jerk was lobbing rockets at Israel and with the help of America, Arafat and his backers were getting away with it.

    Eventually Arafat died and the asshole had to be buried in somebody’s back yard!

    Now they are doing this again?

    David Gregory spoke to the foreign minister of Iran and he’s going on about the poor children being killed in GAZA. So does Gregory say anything about Hamas PUTTING those people in the way of Israel’s incoming defensive rockets?

    These Arabs pee upon our feet and tell us it’s raining.

    I’ll tell you what....MOST of America is in the interior. As an aside, didn’t I hear that Delaware was asked to take some of these? Delaware has a HUGE illegal immigration problem for our chicken industry and they all come from Ecuador and Honduras.

    I predicted that Delaware would get hit with this as this is all to provide crony capitalists with cheap labor thank me very much to explain this.

    Three years ago ABC’s “Home Makeover” came in and built some shyster soup woman a new house and soup kitchen and rumor is that the big area around it would be a tent city.

    The place had been zoned NON-SIT-DOWN EATING (or something) and ABC knew this BEFORE they ever broke some dirt. Now a few years later the place sits fallow save for the boyhood friend of Moochelle’s brother who lives there as, again, they build a soup kitchen in an area non-zoned for sit-down and now I know what was the plan. This is only about 3 miles down the road from me. So look for me in the evening news cause this is Sussex county and WE’RE READY!

    I’m told even Markell turned down the Democrats.

    Already I got an invite to attend some kind of prayer meeting at this site and hey, I’m going to go. This coming Saturday so if you don’t hear from me next Sunday send out the guards!

    I see why the spinm eisters don’t want pics of those kids on the trains or Obama walking amongst them. They WANT to keep all this under wraps and so McCain carried on and put on a show that he be admitted.

    Well was he? If so, WHERE ARE THE PICTURES?

    Americans are shocked because so many are not aware that there is NO fence on our border and our president is bussing them in.

    We know fences and locks here in America and while Obama desperately wants to destroy America’s middle class, THIS will not be tolerated.

    Coming thoughts on Israel.

    Morning AB, All....

    .....So today is my cooking day as most of you might know. I have some shrimp out to thaw as they make a great little dish with some cocktail sauce. I find that with just feeding myself I am having to adjust all my quantities, indeed even my choices as cooking for beloved husband was very different than preparing meals just for me.

    Beloved deceased husband would never, for example, eat shrimp of any kind. He’s born in Indiana and those folks think seafood is immoral.

    Gerald, the black and white cat who always helps me cook, however, considers shrimp quite the delicacy and so I must cover, and hide and watch the shrimp as I drain it in a colander that hooks over my sink.

    Well Gerald, despite the cutting board and kitchen items piled on top of it spends many minutes pondering how to get to the draining shrimp and next thing I hear crashes and falls and the sound of tinkling metal.

    Gerald begins to MEOW very loudly and as I rush to see what the hell I note Gerald is trying to get his paw out of something, there are utensils all over the floor and shrimp are everywhere.

    Somehow Gerald got his CLAW stuck in one of the little colander holes and folks, it was agony and screaming, both human and cat, as I tried to wrest his claw out of that little hole.

    I might need to obtain some type O blood but I did get Gerald’s claw out of the hole.

    He was on his last legs, life was ebbing from him, only the shrimp could save him. Psssst, what’s one claw when you got a big pile of shrimp?

    Thank you AB for doing this thread every week and big this week I suspect will be that border problem.

    If ever there was a ham-handed move by a Presidents it’s this one. Most Americans didn’t even know about this onslaught at the border and it would have been better to not to show it for all of the country to see.

    We understand fences and locks out here in la-la land and I think one of the more revealing glimpses this past week was that video that went viral of that black woman ranting about all this.


    She said it all even better than I could.

    Here is the scene, as I envision.

    President Obama enters the room, skeptical that his team of spinmeisters “decorate the lies” is how he phrased it, came up with a way to get around the American public’s silly rules about immigration.

    Barry sat down next to Michelle, one of the KEY, if not THE key person on his decorate-the-lies team. He smiled quickly but was time for business.

    “You think the VA was great,” Michelle whispered so softly that Barry had to bend toward her. “We had a couple Repubs get grumpy from all the complaining but we got millions through that system.”

    Valerie Jarrett entered the room and both Michelle and Barry held their breath. VALJAR being present meant business was about to happen.

    “And the Benghazi thing,” Michelle said after watching VALJAR leave the room. Evidently things were not ready.

    “So far that’s going nowhere but this team pulled it off.” Barry smiled at his wife; they’d discussed this plenty of times.

    “The IRS, heh,” Michelle continued, scanning the room for VALJAR.

    “We’re getting things done, sure, shell,” Barry said. “We got big funds for that terrorist thing and already they’ve forgotten all about Bergdahl. Got the pipelines money. And I think we got some Iranian money coming in for a little bit of Iraq action. Val got that....she tells me lots of bucks.”

    “wait till you hear about this immigration solution. It’s genius.”

    Barry shifted his upper torso at these words from Michelle. The immigration money is out there but there was yet any funds coming in cause the capitalist cronies want cheap labor in exchange for big bucks.”

    “Well it better be good, Shell, cause I got a call yesterday from a big wig at the World Bank upping the price another ten million. Hell we even got Boehner and McCaonnell on line with us , only took an offer of a million bucks into selected campaign coffers.”

    Both Obamas closed mouths as VALJAR again entered the room. She turned right around and walked back out. Michelle Obama leaned over to her husband. “They’re going to arrange an influx of thousands, maybe in the millions, of young kids from Ecuador, Honduras. Barry, it’s brilliant PR!”

    Barry sat and pondered this idea. His team did do a good job of not only figuring out ways around the law-for that they also needed Holder- but the clever spin on it. He admired them, he sure did, but a bunch of kids suddenly appear at the border?

    “Come on, Barry. The American public will like it! What’s a better story than a young child fleeing oppression and gang balance to make their unchaperoned way to the shores of America. We got Mexico in on it-cost us a bundle- lot of work getting this all set up.”

    President Obama sat and pondered this plan. VALJAR again entered the room. Barry let out a slight smile.

    The American public would love this story, Barry thought, leaning back to hear VALJAR’s version of things.

    President Obama didn’t count on the fact that the very public whose hospitals are filled, cars are wrecked by uninsured, schools are filled by non-English speaking students....


    Just a little fiction ran through my head last night and thought I’d share.

    While we’re on the subject, guys, and you may thank me very much, allow The Wise I to explain this thing about women and birth control.

    When I was a young and lush female, I absolutely hated being a female. It wasn’t that I was born a man or any silly stuff but putting all the choices in a basket, I assumed the male of the species was better off.

    I became a woman’s libber of the highest order and I’m not proud of that.

    I DO know, however, the issue women have with birth control and I shall explain.

    About this female thing, my logic was that the woman had all the trials and tribulations. She had to have the baby, she had to be pure in her sexuality, she had that awful thing every month, the pain of childbirth. She had to wait for the man to ask her out or to dance. Men only wanted pretty women, brains and personality didn’t matter.

    I couldn’t make myself into a man but I could HATE them.

    Now I say that softly because I really didn’t hate men; Lord I married four of them and that don’t count the ones I dated. AND I thought I was one of the ugliest women on earth which, of course, I was not. I was quite pretty and I look at young pictures of myself and frankly I was a knockout.

    Though, per the women’s libber lesbian-based creed, looks did not matter and so I figured hey....forget I am pretty, love me for my brains and personality....heh....well few men really loved me for my looks that I recall but if they admitted such a thing it would not be a compliment to me, just the weirdness of the women’s libbers.

    I dated fellows, sure, plenty of them, Here’s the thing about being a woman and NOT wanting to get pregnant. You don’t really take birth control pills all the time as a single woman as well you got to date a guy at least a couple of times before sex. So maybe two months go by, three or four, before a fellow comes along that I would date long enough to be intimate with. Then it became a big deal.

    You go through your old scrips and see if your BC scrip expired. If it did you got to make another appointment to the GYN to get a new script. IF the scrip was still good might only have a couple of months left.

    Lookit, it’s AWFUL.

    The solution is, of course, LET BC PILLS BE SOLD WITHOUT A SCRIPT.

    Hey, the AMA contributes to political coffers and without forcing women to come see them for a script they lose business, right?

    It’s always the woman who has to be bothered and why? So Brad can have sex and not worry about me getting pregnant?

    Understand that this logic is not...well, logical but it’s how young women think. The guy, he can buy a condominium at any drug store, no questions asked. The woman, even to get a freaking IUD, has to make appointments, put legs in stirrups....the least they could do is give us our BC pills as part of our treatment. Health insurance did not pay abortions either. Not sure how it is today.

    I thought it was only I who was bitter about all this but hey, it would seem that lots of women want their BC pills paid for....or....HERE IS A SOLUTION...

    ...let the women buy BC pills at the drug store. It’s been over 30 years since the BC pill. There’s very few side effects of the thing and, if so, THEN you go to the GYN.

    Course this will take away contributions to politico’s funds so we must fight this silly battle.

    Gubmint controlling our life. All to keep the Blue Blood elite in power.

    Let me get my big fear out of the way.....

    Here in Delaware there is a huge chicken industry, as most likely know....and recently ABC and Extreme Home Makeover came in and re-distributed wealth by giving a woman a huge house for this rinky dink soup kitchen she had.

    Of course it was illegal but that big house is still there and they started putting tents on the thing. Rumor is that it is expected to become a tent city for the homeless.

    The chicken workers here in Delaware are mostly from Ecuador and Hondorus. I got a hunch there is a plan to bring in a boatload of illegals and put them in Tent City, which is only about 2 miles from me.

    You can believe we’ll be out there protesting. This whole thing is part of a plan and our opposition party SAYS AND DOES NOTHING.

    When I was a young lass I worked for AT&T. Back then AT&T was everything telephones; cell phones were a distant dream.

    Anyway, we had a union, the CWA, communication Workers of America. When I was hired you did not have to “join” the union, or pay dues.

    Exactly almost the day I started work a new ruling came down, I think it was a state thing. It was what was called, heh, at the AGENCY shop.

    You didn’t have to JOIN the union, so went the logic, but you HAD TO PAY DUES!

    Well I got an attitude cause if I have to pay dues I for sure was going to JOIN the union.

    I did and for the next 15 years I drove the company a shop steward you must smile.

    I guess the AGENCY shop is no more?

    Heh....and trust there’s a lot of folks like me who don’t like the union but get involved cause they HAVE to pay dues.

    Almost every teacher I know despises their union but that’s just anecdotal.

    This is a major blow to the unions and come on, workers belonging to unions are no more than 10-15% of the population. It’s like these thugs own us.

    I’m ready to move on MID....sad to say.

    They have huge bucks coming to them from big businesses, crony capitalism and all that. The Blue Blood elite have power and they want to smack down the Tea Party.

    Speaking for myself, I’m ready to move on. It’s like Mike Castle....they tell me...”well Mike Castle would at least be a REPUBLICAN if you dolts in Delaware hadn’t voted him out. Are you happy with Chris Coons?”

    Well of course I am not happy with Coons (who is devoted, you should smile, to somehow convincing me he’s on my side but that’s another story....just know that Coons and I speak from time to time) but at least he doesn’t pretend to be my friend!

    Same way with these Blue Bloods. Once we break with the Blue Blood elite we will take away to gain power, funds and influence but the longest trip in the world begins with one step.

    However, I caution yon reader, I don’t suggest any move until after these mid-term elections. I suspect the Blue Blood will get a rude awakening as to our powers and numbers.

    We shall see.

    I’m with most folks, Rand Paul talks out of both sides of his mouth.

    I just listened to David know he lives right down the street from me? Brooks said, as I paraphrase:
    “Until the Republicans can come up with Blue State Republicans they’re going downhill fast.”

    Say what?

    Say Blue state that what we call them now?

    Folks, the Tea party, that name they put on us though we know they know nothing, needs to keep plowing on and stick to its guns. We are a political force and hey, if we’re in the minority, fine.

    Homosexuals are in the minority, blacks are in the minority , that doesn’t mean they don’t have a voice, that they should be mocked.

    I’m not buying it and unlike the pundits who want to talk endlessly about whether the IRS intentionally lost emails, I live in and Rush.

    We have juries out here in la la land and the juries don’t sit and talk about something on and on and on if the IRS deliberately lost the emails.

    We pronounce a verdict and out here in REALVILLE we’re already of a mind, common sense to the fore, that the IRS deliberately lost Lerner’s emails and come on, also lost the email of everybody she emailed?


    So in REALVILLE we’re tired of hearing the lovable and well-liked David Gregory go on forever about the guilt of the IRS.

    We’re ready for the congress, especially the House, to do what they should do when the executive branch has flipped them the bird.

    Instead they want to continually discuss.

    Okay, so here’s what happened with my daughter and the neighbor. And you know I don’t make this stuff up.

    It was last Monday. Daughter, Melissa, lives directly next door to a lady known as the community recluse. This lady lives cater-corner to me as well and in 12 years of living here I have never laid an eyeball on this woman.

    Melissa, and her husband at the time, Mike, got to know that lady right quick and every week Kaitlyn would take her trash out to the curb.

    This past Monday both Melissa and Kaitlyn were about to come over to my house to put their trash in my trash can but before they went over and knocked on recluse’s door (name is Audrey Jean Bell-more on that saga later) to ask if she needed her trash put out.

    Jean (what she calls herself) did have trash to go out and she asked Melissa to please bring in some cases of water from her car. As Melissa was lugging in the water bottles and while Kaitlyn was in the yard getting Jean’s trash, Jean complained of being dizzy and faint. It was very, very hot here Monday, in the mid-90’s.

    Melissa was discussing stuff with Jean and, intriguingly, she was sending me text messages while she was talking to the woman. Explaining that they’d be at my house soon, now talking to chatty neighbor. Sent me a couple of text messages to that effect so Jean, it turns out, likes to talk.

    Suddenly Jean says she thinks she’s going to pass out.

    And she did.

    Only, ladies and gems, she did not pass out.

    She dropped straight down, dead, dead, dead.

    Obviously there’s more to the story. As I type this, in fact, Jean is alive at a local hospital but in a coma where she has been since this past Monday night.

    All I know is that Kaitlyn came running into my house and told me that Mommy needed her inhaler, to get the keys and come with her. I wasn’t sure why I needed my house keys but I got upset as Melissa had just finished mowing my back lawn and had been complaining about shortness of breath. I thought the person in trouble was MELISSA.

    So I give Kaitlyn the keys and she runs to her house, which was evidently locked as Melissa is super careful not to leave it unlocked and she WAS coming over to my house. Meanwhile I’m limping across the road to see if Melissa was ok. I got my first foot in Melissa’s yard when an ambulance comes roaring in. Now I’m freaking. Melissa needing an inhaler is one thing, ambulances are more ominous.

    As I am walking across the street I could hear Melissa softly murmuring something from INSIDE of Jean’s garage, which I thought odd. She didn’t sound like her breath was labored.

    As I enter Jean’s garage I see the ambulance guy unpacking to handle Jean’s CPR and there is neighbor Jean, laying on her garage door, blue almost as the sky and not breathing.

    Soon four ambulances come, a firetruck and a police car. Kaitlyn and I are all over the place and, in general, chaos.

    Turns out that Melissa caught the woman as she fell. Since Melissa always has a cell phone with her, she was able to call 911. They had her do CPR on Jean, something Melissa never did before. She was sweating and pressing on the woman’s chest and sobbing her sorrow at sweating on the unconscious woman. Did this for ten minutes till first ambulance came.

    It took all those emergency vehicles over an hour to get out of there. Nobody knew Jean’s next of kin though some neighbors say she had a nephew in Pennsylvania and on and on.

    Melissa called hospital that night, next day and went to visit Jean the third day.

    Jean’s heart was beating on its own but it took two shocks to get it out of arithymia, and she was on life support.

    It would turn out that Melissa did save Jean’s life but you know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, no?

    So Melissa follows this drama and it took over four days before Jean’s nephew was found.

    Imagine if this woman had died in that house. She might have laid there for a week or more before anybody knew it.

    Understand that while Jean IS alive as I type this, and is responding to neurological stimuli et al, she is not in very good shape and is expected to not live without life support. Why the plug has not been pulled by now is a mystery to me.

    So this nephew of Jean, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, he’s got the hots or something for Melissa. He comes over to Jean’s house and gives her a low wolf whistle as she was working in her yard (I have NEVER had a man give me a wolf whistle for what that’s worth) and at this point Melissa flat out dislikes the guy.

    He tells her that Jean had a “do not resuscitate” order, which meant what for him to tell Melissa that….she was supposed to check her wrist before administering CPR? Do people wear “do not rescusitate” orders when they’re walking around, NOT in a medical institution of some sort?

    Jerk also tells Melissa that Jean has a couple of busted ribs which a)she does not, Melissa checked with nurse, and b)even if she did, Melissa was not pushing on her chest hard enough to break a rib. Those paramedics banged on her chest so hard that Melissa remembers thinking that if that’s how hard you have to hit then she didn’t do it right.

    It’s the same old, same old. Jean has this awful nephew and he tells Melissa that his half-sister already went into Jean’s house and stole a bunch of money. And go on, he and his daughter, who happens to live close by, were there and they were going treasure hunting in Jean’s home, yes they were.

    Meanwhile Melissa’s hurting because, well hey, she was the last person to talk to the woman alive; she and Kaitlyn really liked her. Jean even gave KaILTYN A Christmas present, left it hanging on the mailbox.

    So poor Melissa, already having gone through a nasty Protection from Abuse hearing the prior Friday (SHE WON! Got even more than she asked for. Jerk must stay away for a FULL YEAR!)….she has a neighbor drop dead in front of her AND this neighbor has a jerk only living relative, a bunch of vultures, ain’t that always the way?

    Melissa’s been up to see Jean a couple of times, she talks to her. Hey, the nurse tells Melissa...the only person visiting Jean that isn’t ready to tear off the woman’s earrings...that she MIGHT pull through this. Though I must wonder why they have not yet pulled that plug.

    So that’s where it stands now with Jean and Melissa.

    I’m so proud of that child of mine. She’s doing so well, taking care of Kaitlyn, she continues to do my yard work, she sold Mike’s awful truck wreck and his setting up her own business on Ebay.

    She’s a great kid….AND SHE SAVES LIVES!

    Morning AB, All

    Thank you AB, as always, for doing this thread. Thank you yon ladies and gems for putting up with me. Cause later in the thread I got a story and it really happened.

    It involved my daughter saving her neighbor’s life (also MY neighbor as daughter lives across street from me) and hey, I thought I had all the men but this girl has them all, on the road, at the gas station, visitors to various neighbors. She recently took off her wedding ring and the men have noticed.

    Which is interesting because I never thought that she might get married again. Not that marriage is near but she’s NOT going back with that awful husband.

    Between her and I we got the male population of Sussex county pretty tied up.


    I want to say I am so angry at the IRS, at this poor soldier stuck in Mexico in what is obviously a mistake, the situation in Iraq and on and on and on.

    But no, I am not really mad at these folks. Obama is only doing what he was elected to do, which is to put a price on everything and launder that money through to the peeps, voters and friends.

    I am furious at the Republicans and I know, I know...what’s new.

    What, John McCain knew nothing about the VA abuses in his own state? He who is the ersatz champion of POW rights and McCain can’t help the soldier in Mexico? Obama’s waiting for an offer of the right amount of money because it’s never about idealogy with him and his, it’s always about how much money we can bring in and how to best re-distribute to the supporting peeps.

    I know it’s the same old complaint and yeah, the pubs excoriated the IRS pretty good but they need to do like the Dems, send people out everywhere, remind of the power the IRS has and the joke of them having lost the emails.

    I spent a large part of my life dealing with the IRS. I did payroll most of my life and was charged with sending in the money withheld from paychecks. Even back then the IRS was an arrogant bunch of people.

    One time I got a notice after filing my quarterly return….a form you calculate all money withheld and all money sent to the IRS and they better agree of Lucy got some ‘splaining to do.

    This was for a large Baltimore hospital and know that the FICA and fed tax withholdings was in the 50-75K every two weeks payroll. The thing they sent me said I was short over TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!

    You have to send in this money within three days of payroll so on the quarterly return you list paydates and money sent in. The twit at the IRS said I didn’t send in one week’s worth of withholdings.

    Of course I tore the payroll department, found cancelled checks, didn’t sleep nights, told the management and, natch, called the IRS.

    You can’t imagine how this upset me. It would upset anyone for God’s sake. The IRS accusing me of shorting them by over $20,000 and my employer was not happy.

    Finally, with payroll docs verifying the amount to be sent, and with cancelled check to prove I sent the correct amount, I talk to the three year old at the IRS who sent me this notice.

    I remain on the phone as she examines my faxed documents and cancelled check proof.

    “Well okay, I guess we made a mistake,” the toddler said.

    I screamed.

    I screamed into the phone and I screamed some more. All the payroll department came and wrested the phone from my hand.

    “So that’s it?” I shout. “You, la-di-da just accuse me of not sending you almost half year of my pay and…’oops, my bad?’...that’s it?”

    “Don’t get so upset,” the IRS child told me.

    They have no idea. NO IDEA. They don’t bother to re-check themselves because they are God, right here on earth, the mighty IRS and I owe them money for THEIR mistake.

    It took forever to get the fines and penalties they assessed us; in fact I had to get the little lesbian Barbara Mikulski to get involved.

    The pubs got a great arguiing point with that kid in Mexico and the IRS and lookit, if the Dems had these scandals, we’d all know about it, every day, every minute, every second. The pubs would all be impeached.

    Same old, same old.

    Keep at it Bray, keep at it.

    Bray, I got a real neat something I found out.

    I got a snoop (I got snoops all over the place, damn I’m good at it) who sent me an email and asked if I wanted him to forward it to me daily.

    What it is, and I never knew such a thing existed...the county, and state I must suppose, pays a guy and all he does is gather links to the local media, newspapers, web sites, radio talk show bytes....on all local and state issues.

    So my friend (one of my men friends....there are many, THESE guys will tell you anything, insert wink here)...forwarded this email to me and guess what I found?

    MY BLOG POSTS....zillions of them!

    Heh. I have a special way of titling my blog posts”Delaware politics read ‘em and weep....the 0/00/00 edition.” There were a slew of these; made me consider re-doing this Blog thing.

    As I understand it, every employee and elected official of all counties (there’s only 3 of them in Delaware, don’t get too excited) and state get a copy of this email, gathered by a paid state employee.

    What a hoot!

    So I am told, and I have no proof of this but I am told by someone who would know, that Governor Markell reads my column every day. Not that this fact is a source of pride, Markell being a low-IQ liberal.


    I am reaching THOUSANDS of people every day and never even knew it. Although there were clues. My editor keeps calling me and asking if I need anything, am I okay?

    When I request an interview they jump at the bit to work with me. I am very nervous about FreeRepublic. I know of one Freeper who joins sometimes on this thread but I trust him.

    I say a lot of things on this thread I’m not sure I’d want those many gubmint employees reading. Some day, some way, I think they’re going to fight back against me.

    If your group doesn’t have a Blog, get one.

    Adding to the bemusement, daughter’s PFA comes up right as a local guy I supported is on trial for rape and a local elected guy too has a PFA.

    Melissa says to me...”What is John Atkins’ wife name? Is it Heather?”

    Heh. Which it is. Long story about this guy but daughter knows it. Said she and Heather were in same room yesterday than it’s a media firestorm as Eric Bodenweiser (”Mom, you got his bumper sticker on the Jeep!”) and his wife come trotting up.

    Sometimes I think God has a plan for me and arranges these things perfectly.

    But I dream.

    Well I just don’t know about this.

    I remember going to visit my father in jail because he didn’t pay child support. Now my father was a cheapskate and he ended up taking custody of all three of us as he figured got pay rent anyway, kids cheap to feed. It wasn’t a very good experience to see your father in jail.

    Further, I thought they called that debtor’s prison.

    Not that I blame my daughter but I’m going to talk her down from this.

    Guys, it’s sad really, but this son-in-law-NOT ON ANY SUNDAY TALK SHOW-is such a loser. Obviously I am helping what with buying them a house and goodness they were sharing my jeep until SIL told me to shove it up my ass. Then I also turned off his cell phone, that I pay for.

    When they moved down here, myself, and my daughter as well, wanted nothing more then for them to succeed and be happy. Here they have a wonderful house that they don’t pay a dime for. Daughter gets a monthly disa. pmt, not much but all SIL needed to do was mow a few lawns for cigarettes...they get food stamps and all medical paid by you guys and me.

    Nobody wanted this but you do what you gotta do.

    Interested in the spin on those children being carted in at the border. Also following Bergdahl the hero. Already the spin is that he was held in a cage and tortured.

    How long is this President going to keep flipping our separation of powers method the bird? How long is the congress and opposition party going to stand by and let him get away with this?

    Daughter got her year long PFA(protection from abuse) award this past Friday. Husband, heh, was his own lawyer and it was the stuff of situation comedy.

    Son-in-law gets to interview daughter on stupid is this? He asks her if she ever had to call the police on him before.

    “Just that time that you ran me over with the car and I had to go to the hospital,” daughter answered to the guffaws of everyone in attendance.

    Anyway, he’s filing an appeal, heh....the gift what keeps on giving.


    Somehow I got hold of them, have the Republicans call me.

    Fishtalk to don-o

    So I thought I’d jump in here and give an opinion, thank me very much.

    I say....follow the money.

    This administration does what whoever provides the most money desires, never mind loyalty and patriotism.

    They’d been offered a huge amount of money for the Taliban 5 and we know the admin tried over and over to make it happen.

    This time they said hell with it and came up with this big Bergdahl silly thing. We know the Bergdahl pair had been at that WH many times than makes sense so this thing had been in the works for many months.

    I think they sat for hours and figured the spin, got Rice to agree to be the paid for liar....don’t tell me this woman ain’t got a big account in the Swiss alps.

    Finally, here’s the bigger thought....I THINK THE REPUBLICANS ARE FULL AWARE OF THIS!

    And they let it go on.

    Sure, it’s not going to be easy to launch a campaign, not impeach....but STOP this man from systemically destroying the country.

    Last night we sent a Brat-y message.

    There will be more.
