Memorial Day 2015

May 22nd, 2015

They fought for our precious Freedom of Speech..
Yet we get scared and stay Silent.

They fought for our precious Constitution..
while most of own children haven’t a clue about it.

They fought and died to offer us Freedom of the Press…
as our very own media aids and abets our sworn enemies.

They fought to offer us a government which serves the people…while our fellow citizens vote for a terrorist enabler, Dictator wanna be.

I apologize to the memory of all the soldiers and their sacrifices……

I promise I will
never give up the good fight.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Bless them and bless you all Sweet Friends.

Thank you for your service and may God bless you George.
You are not forgotten.

If you are ashamed to stand by your colors, you had better seek another flag.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas! :-) (hint hint?)

May 8th, 2015

Being a mom is the hardest job of all, and it’s tough to find a Mother’s Day gift that will reflect your appreciation. What it comes down to is how much thought you put into the gift. So what are you gonna get your best cheerleader?

Thrifty Ideas that won’t break the bank. heh.

Homemade Potpourri

Create a natural air freshener for your mom by making a bowl of potpourri with a carefully picked blend that caters to her preferences.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries>

If your mom has a sweet tooth,(hint hint) this is the perfect gift for her. Melt some chocolate, and dip strawberries into the mixture. Place them on a baking tray, and cool it in the fridge.
(p.s. You can always cheat and eat these yourself)

Scrabble Coasters
Give this set of Scrabble coasters (or any other theme) that spell out the word “love” to the Scrabble-lover in your life.

Hand Cream
Hand cream should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.

DIY Bath Salt
Bath salts are such an easy yet practical (and beautiful) present to make. Not to mention, it’s budget friendly, and you can get all the ingredients at the supermarket!

Mothers Day gifts


Buy Her Groceries

Moms definitely love and appreciate practical gifts. If you know your mom well, buy her groceries before she makes her regular trip to the supermarket. Or, ask her for her grocery list, and tell her you’ll be making the trip for her as a Mother’s Day present. If you like, you can slip in a surprise, such as a card.

Clean Up
Tell your mom to take the day off, and clean her residence until it looks like it’s brand-spanking new! Mop, scrub, and polish until you can see your reflection on the surfaces.
Organize her items if necessary, and if you’re ambitious, you can attempt to color-code her closet!
(Warning: Do not attempt to touch my closet..grr! ha)

Homemade Eye Mask
When traveling or simply at the end of a crazy workday, a soothing eye mask is just the thing to relax Mom’s worries away. And making one for her is also a great way to repurpose an old shirt.

Gold Spray-Painted Jars
Breathe new life into pasta and condiment jars with the help of gold spray paint.

DIY Tea Bags
Make these cute tea bags with a special blend of customized tea to show your love.

Wanna get me something?..ha

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MY DEAR FRIENDS!

It was once said:
“The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents.” ha

Conservatives:)

April 30th, 2015

In light of and in spite of our descent into the ObamaNation, a.k.a. Marxism and soft tyranny……………….

To all genuine Conservatives who are struggling to remain guardians of our precious Constitution, despite being beseiged and under attack by our fellow Americans and media.

We understand profoundly why the framers of this one of a kind, prized document specifically called for limited government.

Limited as in limited.

Why?
Because, unlike the pseudo-compassionate Leftards, who want BIGGG government to institute arbitrary rules and regs..They actually believed in maximizing individual liberty.

Individual liberty.
Y’all do remember that, don’t you?

Yet Conservatives are the ones labelled uncompromising, and of course – heartless extremists.
Izlamo Nazis who murder and maim worldwide never warrant such vitriol.

To all of you who wrestle daily to secure our steadily slipping away liberty.
You know who you are.

You resist succumbing to the sinister, gutless promise of BIG government-provided security.
You treasure family, believe in hard work, traditional values and God.

This battle is a call to action like no other.

Here’s to all of you.

You cherish the United States of America as we have known it, and are not quite ready to kiss it …………goodbye.

I salute you.
Cheers.
Steady on sweet friends.

Hope is the only real tonic.

Happy Passover and Blessed Easter!!

passover-table5d1b3

At the stroke of midnight …..G‑d visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, who were mercilessly enslaving the Israelites.
biting4

The Good Lord spared the Children of Israel, “passing over” their homes—hence the name: Passover. (Get it?) daydream

Pharaoh virtually chased his former slaves out of the land.

The Israelites left in such a mad rush that the bread they baked did not have time to rise.
They began their trek to Mount Sinai and their birth as a People.

matza-border

So what’s the matzah all about?

matzaver1

The characteristic of leavened dough is that it rises and swells, symbolizing pride and conceit.

Matzah, on the other hand, is thin and flat, signifying meekness and humility.

Freedom and humility sweet friends, are the essence of the holiday.

Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all.
(William Temple)

Stay humble sweet friends.

And just remember…..when IzlamoNazis wail about their so called “rights”…..

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
(Abraham Lincoln)

Spring Fever ?

March 20th, 2015

There’s something in the air my sweet friends.

Birds are chirping, flowers are blossoming and budding, the crack of a bat, a deep line drive………
It’s a time for new beginnings, spring cleaning…….perhaps a budding romance.?

There’s an illness that has been documented by poets for centuries. Its symptoms include a flushed face, increased heart rate, appetite loss, restlessness and daydreaming. It’s spring fever, that wonderfully amorphous disease we all recognize come April and May.
Fact or Fiction?: ‘Spring Fever’ Is a Real Phenomenon
..Clearly, there are marked correlations between moods, behavior and the lengthening days of spring……..

Ah…….
The New York City forecast for the next cupla days:
Winds gusting past 20 mph and colder, 6 inches of snow! …breezy and BRRR!…ccccold.

They’re expecting a bit of a N’orEaster!…egads!

So, the question is my sweet friends…

Can ya still have Spring Fever in the middle of a N’orEaster?..lol

Israel Creates Twitter Technology!

March 12th, 2015


New Israeli app brings live video to Twitter

Meerkat by Israeli technology company Life on Air, was originally a side project but has caused a massive stir since its release.

IsraelWins Again

Meerkat allows Twitter users to stream video of themselves or their surroundings to their followers with just the touch of a button. How does it work? You download the app to your iPhone and begin filming a video clip. At the same time, your Twitter account will automatically post a Tweet with a special link.

“There are plenty of live video technologies that put out amazing products that will stream something happening in beautiful quality from the most remote place on Earth; however our goal is to bring live video, as a medium, to everyone in the most consumable and engaging way.”

Israeli technology to reach every Facebook user:

The popular social network recently launched a new application allowing the owners of any type of cellular phone with Internet access – even the simplest ones – to easily access their Facebook account.

Perhaps it’s time to have a look back to what someone prophesied back on Sept 11 of a different decade.

Sept. 11, 1973: (Note the date)
Israel Police minister Shlomo Hillel speaking to the International Police Association about confronting terrorism (including aviation terrorism).

“Surrender to terrorism,” said Hillel “results not only in the decline of the value of law but also degrades every international moral authority, encourages the growth of murder, terrorism and global extortionism, and pushes the world into a state of anarchy and chaos.”

Army Major Matt Golsteyn Betrayed by Leaders Indeed

February 8th, 2015

Despicable. This will make your head spin my friends.

Afghanistan War Hero Stripped of Silver Star
(Full story here)

This is the state of our Nation my friends. There are NO words.

By February 20th, 2010, the Battle of Marjah had been underway for a week. In order to seize the Afghan district—an IED-infested, Taliban-dominated collection of villages and crisscrossing canals and tree lines that were a defending fighter’s dream—the U.S. military had divided its force into thirds….

As the Special Forces soldiers wore Afghan Army uniforms, the Taliban concluded that there were virtually no Americans on their southern flank. The fighting there was intense.

Having secured a defensive position in the heart of the Balakino Bazaar (picture the Bakara market in the film Black Hawk Down, but more impoverished) the Special Forces team, led by a captain named Matt Golsteyn, repeatedly attempted to expand their footprint, but regularly met fierce resistance. On the 20th, one of the team’s assaults into Taliban territory took a turn for the worse.

An Afghan soldier was wounded and a vehicle got stuck in the mud as insurgents raked the coalition formation with gunfire.

Under heavy fire, Golsteyn, as Dan Lamothe of the Washington Post summarized this week, “ran about 150 meters to the trapped MRAP to retrieve a powerful 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, an anti-tank weapon. While moving under gunfire, he coordinated a medical evacuation for the wounded Afghan soldier and then opened fire with the Carl Gustav.”

Running through the open despite the fact that the Taliban had successfully pinned down the rest of his men, Golsteyn looked like he “was alone fighting 30 enemy fighters out in the poppy fields.” He then coordinated airstrikes from F/A-18 Hornets and a drone, silencing the enemy. The battle lasted four hours.

For his actions, Golsteyn was awarded the Silver Star, and was told that the medal would likely be upgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross (the Army’s equivalent of the Navy Cross, and second only to the Medal of Honor) after review by the Secretary of the Army.

I can confirm that this was true because I was present at the ceremony where Golsteyn received his Silver Star, and personally overheard Lieutenant General John Mulholland, then the commander of the Army’s Special Operation’s Command, say that an upgrade was under consideration.

In fact, I know Golsteyn—now a major—well. I served alongside him in Marjah for months (though not on the 20th of February—I was among the thousands of Marines fighting elsewhere in the district that day) and can attest that he is one of the most courageous, dedicated, and honorable officers I encountered during my service in the military.

He would give his life for the men he led without a moment’s thought—and he very nearly did, on several occasions. When we returned from our deployments and honors began to roll in for Golsteyn, I reflected that it is nice to see the good guys get recognized.

It didn’t last long. In 2011… I learned that the Army had launched a criminal investigation into his actions during the battle….

The investigation, apparently, had nothing to do with the acts of bravery that earned Golsteyn his medal. Instead, according to the Washington Post, which cited officials familiar with the case, it concerned “an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.”

….Alerted about the controversy by another Army officer, Captain Will Swenson, Congressman Duncan Hunter wrote last year to John McHugh, the secretary of the Army, asking about the status of Golsteyn’s seemingly endless career freeze. Apparently the secretary did not take kindly to the inquiry, as he responded in a letter last November that not only would he not be upgrading Golsteyn’s Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross, but would be revoking Golsteyn’s Silver Star entirely…

The revocation of an award such as the Silver Star is extraordinarily rare, and typically would happen in the case of the recipient being convicted of a serious crime that in some way dishonored his service. But not only has Golsteyn not been convicted of a crime—he hasn’t even been charged with one.

McHugh would not reveal to Hunter specifically why he was taking his action beyond submitting the innuendo that he was privy to “derogatory information” regarding Golsteyn’s record.

What could this information be? Who knows? Having, according to Hunter, spent years threatening Golsteyn’s men, searching for and failing “to find one piece of evidence to corroborate the allegation” that launched the investigation, the Army clearly decided to punish Golsteyn anyway, through publicly dishonoring him in a manner that allows him effectively no recourse or due process….

Such is the quality of American military leadership that generals and political appointees like McHugh will send courageous soldiers like Golsteyn into incredibly difficult (some would suggest impossible) circumstances, then invest years in second-guessing their actions after the fact—and then, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, still publicly dishonor the man without giving him a chance to defend himself.

Never mind the fact that if a Taliban bombmaker did in fact die in a violation of the rules of engagement, then in what topsy-turvy universe is that a bad thing?..

In any event, if the Army truly does believe that Golsteyn violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, then they should charge him with a crime. If they can’t do that, then we must conclude that insufficient evidence of a crime exists, in which case Secretary McHugh should give him the Distinguished Service Cross he deserves….

Golsteyn, Swenson, Gant, and others like them are led by men who interrupt their political intrigues and email flirtations with wealthy socialites only to crucify the troops actually doing the fighting when, for whatever reason, they become politically inconvenient—preferably, as with Golsteyn, in a manner that allows for no response or appeal.

Most Americans would take one look at Golsteyn’s record of service and call him a hero. The men who will not share Golsteyn’s risks, but who will hurl innuendoes at him after the fact and publicly dishonor him in a manner that allows him to mount no case on his own behalf?

There’s a word for them too: cowards.

How many ways can you say disgraceful?
Perhaps the new ROE’s should just include surrender. Pffft.

Unlike our PC pathetic so called “Commander in Chief”…our Soldiers, Navy, Marines are the ones who see a clear line between Good and Evil.

This lack of gratitude should not go unpunished.

And…Unlike the dhimmi Congress members, our soldiers actually ahem…work.

Their sacrifice, self-discipline, and personal responsibility is unparalleled.

As y’all know, I have worked with soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, and trust me Sweet Friends…Whether they fly, march or sail….They got our back.

Perhaps someone needs to remind the real “cowards” who demean our heroes that FREEDOM AINT FREE.

God bless you Army Major Matt Golsteyn.

Hang tough. Your true allies have your back, as they apparently always have…..
