Safe & Sound

***Mom's here with us, safe and sound and doing well. This isn't "home" and she's probably not really happy about it, but we're afraid to let her stay by herself. Some major decisions coming up for our family, please keep us in prayer. For now, we're very thankful that she has nearly completely recovered from her TIA.

***Obama: "We'll back every dime of bailout." CBO: "Bailout will lose $24 billion."

Yet millions will vote for him. Unbelievable.

From the comments section, this is awesome:

Listen my friends
And you will see,
What King Obama
Has done to you and me.

On January twentieth
Two thousand and nine,
He took control
We started our decline.

With record unemployment
And people forlorn,
Our tax money spent
Poverty the Norm.

With free phones for some
And EBT cards too,
The lazy ones come
Freebies from me and you.

On November the sixth
Two thousand and twelve,
You must go vote
Or we're going to hell.

The country deserves better
Than the King and Moochele,
America must survive
And ring the liberty bell.

 John D. USN 71-77

***And...Hillary falls on her sword.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to douse a political firestorm over the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, saying she's responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.
"I take responsibility," Clinton said during a visit to Peru. "I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision."
 
Seriously? You're going to tell us you knew and the President didn't? They really do think we're stupid. Okay, the blind, rabid, no-matter-what Obama supporters are, but the rest of us aren't.

***Rudy Guiliani says and interview with Soledada O'Brien is like debating someone with the President's campaign. Well, sir, it is EXACTLY like that.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was never known for being soft on journalists during his time in office. On Monday’s "Starting Point" on CNN, Giuliani pushed back at CNN morning anchor Soledad O’Brien, who started their interview typically by offering the Obama talking points for Giuliani’s reaction.
But when O’Brien started insisting that the word “cover-up” was going too far, and started asking her assistant Miguel for all the Obama transcripts, Giuliani asked, “Man, am I debating with the president's campaign? I mean, the defense of the president is overwhelming.”
Giuliani simply did not believe that if the Obama administration had any savvy, they would believe that the terrorist attack on Libya erupted out of a spontaneous demonstration over an old YouTube clip uploaded from California. He thought U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice should have known this public-relations line would flop before she announced it on five Sunday network news shows.
“Susan Rice goes on television four days later -- I was on CNN with her that morning. Says it was a spontaneous demonstration,” he said. “I knew it wasn't. I'm not part of the administration; I knew it wasn't the day after. And she had to know it wasn't. They were saying it wasn't, the national security adviser said it was a terrorist plot.”

This administration has lied and covered this up so blatantly that it's beyond comprehension that somebody calling themselves a journalist tries to defend their actions. But they do. Imagine if this were the Bush administration.

***                                                  Multitasking:


***Obama weighs in on American Idol. Well, at least he has his priorities straight.

***I don't watch TV, and I kept hearing this phrase "Honey Boo Boo" and seeing it on Facebook, so I Googled it. Oh, a reality show. No wonder I've never heard of it. Kind of amazing what people waste their time on...? I also had no idea what "honey badger" was and looked that up. I figured that was some dumb celebrity nickname, but at least that's a real animal.

***Bush and Cheney comforted troops privately. Yes, because they have character and really care about them as more than a photo op.

For much of the past seven years, President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have waged a clandestine operation inside the White House. It has involved thousands of military personnel, private presidential letters and meetings that were kept off their public calendars or sometimes left the news media in the dark.
Their mission: to comfort the families of soldiers who died fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and to lift the spirits of those wounded in the service of their country.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

-- By Al Albrecht, Home Spun Poems

Home is where the heart is, where love should be all the time,
Respect and kindness, and peace and joy, that you can say are mine.
It's where in times of illness, concern comes from the heart,
And little acts of goodness, will always be a part.
Home is where there's hope and joy, and laughter does abound.
No matter when, or where, or how, that's where it's always found.
Don't ever let the blues come in, just pray them out the door,
Just try your best, and keep right on, you'll be a winner sure.
Home is filled with gladness, sadness is never there.
There are miles and miles of praises, you hear them everywhere.
So keep looking up and be cheerful, as cheerful as you can be,
That's the key to never-ending love, in a home for all to see.
Home is where the "River of Love" flows like a mighty stream,
It's banks are full to overflowing, like a never-ending dream.
Yes, times may come and times may go, but let me tell you this,
The home where God is worshipped, is the home that He will bless.
So hang in there, dear friend of mine, it's worth it all the time,
From early morn til eventide, with God always by your side.
Sure man you picked a winner, with me you must agree,
Just take time out, they will get better, pray and wait and see.

***Sitting for hours is deadly, even if you exercise.

I'm in trouble.

***Bob Knight selling rings, medal at auction.

Hall of Famer Bob Knight is selling his championship basketball rings and Olympic gold medal.
A collection of the former coach's memorabilia will be auctioned by Steiner Sports Memorabilia. It's part of a sale that features the jersey Yankees pitcher Don Larsen wore while pitching a perfect game in the World Series.
The auction, which has already started for some items, runs through Dec. 5 and will feature Knight's rings from his three NCAA championship teams at Indiana - the undefeated 1976 season and the ones from 1981 and 1987.
Steiner Sports CEO Brandon Steiner says Knight wanted to be able to give some of the proceeds to his grandchildren and charities.
