Early Bird

***Blogging early today - before yard saling. I have a lot to do today! Lots of transcription to catch up, and company coming for Fathers Day tomorrow. You know how I am about my house when company's coming. Mark has a couple of jobs today, so he won't be able to help as much as he usually does. Oh well, it's family. They won't care if I miss a few dust bunnies, right?

***Yeah, right. The IRS is claiming they had a computer crash and lost two years of Lois Lerners' emails. Well, isn't that convenient? If that doesn't prove her guilt, I don't know what does.

So the IRS suffered a catastrophic hard disk failure and — lo and behold! – two years of Lois Lerner’s emails have vanished: poof! Just like that. Imagine. Evidence of those happy days targeting conservative groups, gone. So much for the memoir. Eliana Johnson reports that Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, is really steamed. He has even asked the Justice Department to look into it.  “The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” he said in a statement. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.”
Still laughing? Yes, that would be Eric Holder’s Justice Department.  Don’t hold your breath, Mr. Camp.

The lawlessness of this president and his administration is mind-boggling. Even more mind-boggling are the awful people who continue to defend him.

***Vets watch as insurgents undo sacrifices in Iraq. This has to be heartbreaking for our military. They had done a wonderful thing in Iraq, and this president has completely destroyed it.

At VFW halls, kitchen tables and rehabilitation clinics around the country, this week's stunning advance into Mosul left many U.S. veterans reflecting with bitterness and sadness on the sacrifices of a war that lasted for more than eight years and killed nearly 4,500 Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis.
"In many ways, it just feels like a waste — a waste of many lives, a waste of many years," retired Army Col. Barry Johnson said from his home in Potlatch, Idaho.

In the same vein: "Why did you throw our sacrifices away?" Because he's an incompetent coward, sir. He is unworthy of being Commander-in-Chief, but there he is.

Thank you, clueless Obama voter. This is your fault.

***Baby animals so ugly they're cute:

This is a story about how important is being persistent and never give up, no matter how many failures you have experienced in the past.

A man was spending his holiday in Africa. One day he watched the elephants passing by. To his great surprise these giant strong animals were being held only by a small rope, tied to their front leg. Obviously, they could easily run away any moment. However, they did not.

Then he saw a trainer and asked him, how could this happen that not a single elephant makes an attemp to break free. The trainer explained: „When the elephants are very young, we use the same size rope to tie them, and at that time it is enough to hold them. Gradually they grow up, get stronger, nevertheless they never try to get away, as they believe that the rope will still hold them.

The man was stunned. These strong animals could break free any time, but they did not, because they believed that this is impossible.

Sometimes people act like elephants, when they give up after the first failure. Remember, that failures are part of learning. If we want to succeed, we should never give up, but try and try again.
