Uh-Huh

Buuuut, the science is settled about global warming, and we have to eat organic and  non-gmo.

Weze Nappin With Mom



Who gave us fleas.  Nobody has been outside in the grass for 2 months except Mom doing yardwork.  Mom gave us fleas...

Well, The Suck Continues

Phone call from the friend who is cat sitting while I'm away.  My big boy Perry died completely unexpectedly sometime during the night and she found him this morning.  He was only about 5 years old.

Can I rewind this year back a few months and have some choices as to how it was going to go?

Inspired

The Religion of Peace has a webzine, "Inspire". And its second issue contained an article titled "The Ultimate Mowing Machine.” Guess what it was about?  Well, if you said it was instructions for how to use a truck as a weapon to maximum effect, you'd be right.

Muslims have killed nearly 12,000 men, women, and children this year alone.  And it's just July.   Yet we are bringing 700 un-vetted muslims into this country every week.

When are people going to give up on the myths of islam?  When are they going to get that no, they do NOT worship the same God that Christians and Jews do, despite islam starting out as a Christian heresy. Islam has a very different concept of God.  When are they going to get that no, the koran isn't the same as the Bible? When are they going to get that the "jihad is an interior struggle" dance is just that - a dance?  When are they going to get that major portions of the so-called "good" muslims admit that they wouldn't report a family member who was planning an attack?  When are they going to get that islam has been spread by the sword from the beginning, and that's STILL its accepted way of furthering it?

When are people going to get that we are not far behind France and Belgium in these kinds of attacks thanks to a destructive, evil administration deliberately filling small cities with young muslims who hate the very countries they are settled in?  When are people going to get that we are not far behind countries like Sweden with its soaring (but largely hidden by the media) rape and assault rate, because our towns are being embedded with followers of a "religion" that fosters a twisted concept of sexuality and treats women with disdain?

When are people going to get that every one of these attacks come from FAITHFUL muslims? Muslims who are TRULY following the demands of their prophet?

We're just a few steps behind Europe.  Yet we spend more time worrying about Pokemon Go.


This is YOUR child, folks.   Coming soon to YOUR town.

Well That Just Sucks

I've spent a lot of time crying today.  And I'm not a crier.  But I'm heartbroken.  And the weird thing is, it's because of the unexpected death of someone I never met in person.  I feel funny about that, but don't seem to be able to do anything about it.

Years ago, when my daughter lived in Baltimore, I got attached to a small conservative Baltimore talk station, WCBM. While it offers syndicated shows like Limbaugh and Hannity, I much prefer the in-house crew, who are smart, witty, and well informed.  Sean and Frank come on too early for me to catch their whole show except through podcast, but every morning, Monday through Friday, Tom Marr came along with me from 9 until noon no matter what I was doing. Tom was passionate and knowledgable, always curteous (although if YOU weren't you'd walk the plank), a proud American, a former Marine, who started every show with John Wayne's version of the Pledge of Alligiance.  And he seemed to be a genuinely nice guy, a very, very good person.  He was the friend who came to chat each day on a variety of subjects both local and national.  I disagreed with him sometimes.  I yelled at the radio because of that sometimes.  And although I never called in, despite him saying on air that he wished I would, I e-mailed him regularly. I sometimes had to laugh when I'd fire off an e-mail when I was angry about something and he'd get through part of it on air, pause, say "...and I can't read this part on the air..." and then would read the less profane parts.  I respected him greatly and he made me proud when he would say "You've hit a home run with that one!"

And then there was his way of singing "Happy Birthday" to people.  I forgot to ask him to do that for me last year.

Folks who listen to Mark Levin have heard him sit in for Levin.  They were good friends despite some big political differences.

Tom went in for back surgery for a pinched nerve last week.  On Sunday he suffered a massive stroke.  And today, when I heard a bit of stumbling in the background as his fill-in was on the air, and I heard Frank break in for an announcement, my heart sank.  Tom died at 10:36 this morning.

I feel a bit odd grieving so much for someone I never really knew.  My comfort in that being that although WCBM is a small station the miracle of technology and streaming led to him having a fan base all over the world.  And it's a family station. Part of my grief is also for his WCBM family.

Rest in peace, Tom. And Semper Fi, Marine.

After several days traveling.  They drive me crazy and I'll cry as each one goes.
