Offensive?

***Hillary Clinton goes on the "offensive" regarding Benghazi in her new book? Believe it or not, (yes, I know you believe it), she's accusing Republicans of politicizing the matter. As if Democrats, if this had happened during a Republican administration, wouldn't have tried to get to the bottom of it. No, I'll take that back; they wouldn't have tried to get at the truth, which is what Republicans are doing, they would have tried to use the tragedy to destroy as many Republicans as possible. Nobody politicizes a tragedy like the Democrats. This woman is psychotic...how she can look at herself in the mirror knowing she had a direct hand in the death of those four Americans is beyond me. Liberal/Socialist Democrats are just wired differently.

She is unfit for any office, let alone being President of the United States. She would be just as bad as Obama has been, and I hope to God America recognizes that.

***Snoop Dogg leads campaign against gun violence. Well yeah, there's a guy whose opinion I value. Not. Never mind that no gun law would have prevented what happened at Vista, California. Remember, to liberals, facts don't matter. It just makes them feel so good to go along with the other ignorant liberals in Hollywood, y'know?

***Obama cleans house? The house will be filthy as long as you're in it, sir.

***Beam me up? Not yet, but physicists are able to teleport data.

Physicists have proven it’s possible to teleport information encoded into sub-atomic particles between two points about 10 feet apart – an important first step toward developing super-fast quantum computers that would be hackproof.
 
***Yikes! Willis Tower glass ledge cracks. I wouldn't get on it in the first place. Mark really wants to see this next time we go to Chicago, I hope they have it repaired by then.

For a few frantic seconds, Alejandro Garibay thought the only thing between him and the street 103 stories below was a pane of glass that was rapidly cracking as he sat in the clear box jutting out of the Willis Tower.
“I had my palms on the floor and I could feel it cracking,” said Garibay, who was posing for pictures on the skyscraper’s Ledge attraction Wednesday evening with his brother and two cousins. “Honestly, I was in shock, in disbelief. I was scared.”
But Willis Tower officials said on Thursday that he was never in any danger. Only a 6 millimeter thick protective coating cracked. Three half-inches of structural glass underneath the coating that are capable of holding five tons remained intact.

***5 surprising things that 1960s TV changed.

These are interesting: 1. TV became a political force. No doubt about that. 2. The rise of TV journalism. Well, that has become unfortunate in recent years. It's no longer journalism, it's leftist hackery in most instances.

***Yard sale heaven today! It's the US 40 yard sale, and Mom & I are gonna hit it!  After I drop her off back home, Johnny & I are gonna hit it again! :-) I've been looking for a 10" cast iron skillet, hopefully I'll find one today.

***The future is secure...

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?"
"50 cents," replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.
"How much is a dish of plain ice cream?" he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.
"35 cents," she said brusquely.
The little boy again counted the coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.
When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents... her tip.

 
 
***This woman is smart! (Really, Captain Obvious?) When Mom stays with me I watch Jeopardy! with her. I've seen this woman play a couple of times. She knows so much about so many different subjects. 


"Jeopardy!" champion Julia Collins is keeping her winning streak alive. The TV game show says Collins scored her 19th consecutive victory on Thursday's contest. That puts her in a second-place tie for most consecutive non-tournament wins.
She shares the No. 2 spot with season 22 contestant David Madden. The top "Jeopardy!" player is Ken Jennings, who won 74 straight games in season 21 for a total of $2.5 million.
The 31-year-old Collins' latest victory pushed her cash prize total to $410,000.
The Chicago-area resident already has set another record: She's won more games and more money than any other female contestant.
Collins began taping her "Jeopardy!" appearances in January but remained mum about the outcome — although she did quit her business consultant job.

***  Well, that's one way to get on the counter...



***“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”
Daniel Webster

***Have a great day!

  1. I dropped by to say hello! I have been absent from blogging for a while, and I did miss your posts. It’s good to be back. It looks like the cat, as opposed to the government, can actually accomplish something.
