Good Morning P4A Kids…

Welcome to the new rows of “Children of the Corn”….you are most welcome here!  At this rate we will need more Corn Producing States in order to make room! EGADS!

Prayers to Firelight and her family!  Surgery is not fun…I know…I have had three.  But it is time to take care of your health and I am honored to step in to help in your absence.

Well I am still fighting the depression of putting someone else’s pet down.  Thanks all for the support.  Now it is just monitoring the other cat as he knows all is not well and now he is wandering the house looking for his lost friend.  The dog could care less.  She is only ever looking for her ball.  I give thanks to the owners friend as he came over to watch the death then took Maxie…made a box and came back to bury her on the hill behind the house with the other pets.  The whole thing is just bizarre and sad…to be honest! I was just about ready to let the dogs out Monday night for their nightly doody call….when I spotted a Mtn. Lion drinking from the water barrel just off the patio.  It was one of those…Oh SH*T moments!!!  So I can safely say….Monday was not a good kitty day!

Well let’s get to the headlines…shall we?


The truth hurts….

Sad but let’s hope not true!

It’s a record! 10 minutes…ALL LIES!

Do we know what they are protesting? I’m confused!

Oh please God…NO!

Let Him die?  Double Standard strikes again!

Best tweet of the day…..

Land of fruits and nuts

China’s Doormat?

Who ever said all porn is bad? YIKES!

Avon Calling…or NOT!

I am just so sad with having to report this news to you all!  I know your day will be tougher…for that I am sorry!

I threw mine away…I just know I did!  I had it..then I threw it away…REALLY I DID!

And because every father and daughter should share the love….

On this day:

1863 – Confederate Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was wounded by his own men in the battle of Chancellorsville, VA. He died 8 days later.

1865 – U.S. President Andrew Johnson offered $100,000 reward for the capture of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

1885 – The magazine “Good Housekeeping” was first published.

1941 – The Federal Communications Commission agreed to let regular scheduling of TV broadcasts by commercial TV stations begin on July 1, 1941. This was the start of network television.

1954 – Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals set a new major league record when he hit 5 home runs against the New York Giants.

1970 – Student anti-war protesters at Ohio‘s Kent State University burn down the campus ROTC building. The National Guard took control of the campus.

    Good roundup, Cruela.

    Prayers to Firelight on her procedure today.

  • cookboy

    Firelight, when my Hannah got her gall bladder out she walked the 80 yards to the hospital, and wanted to walk home. They made me pick her up in a car, which took longer than her walk would have. You’re gonna feel great!

  • ErinMC4

    Yes, prayers to all who are going through anything tough these days! Thanks Crueladev, for that reminder. :)

    I’m a graduate of Kent State University and, at least for the rest of this week, still working in the city of Kent. This week always brings tons of memorials and rehashing of the events of 1970…some truthful and sorrowful, some not.  The students that attend the university these days don’t really know much about the event, and there are some professors that were students at the time that take advantage of this lack of knowledge. When I attended in the early 2000’s, I was one of those students. And one instructor I had spent half the semester “teaching” about it. Literally. Except that the “teaching” was all from one point of view.  I wasn’t as conservative then as I am now, and my views were still shaping so I was open to everything. But even I knew that in her history lesson was a glaring gap: the other side of the story. Anyways–it was a sad, sad time for all parties. And the specific events that happened in Kent left a big mark on this area that some conspiracists still don’t want to let die.

    On a lighter note: holy cow! Good Housekeeping has been around since 1885!? Dang…my mom loved that magazine when I was growing up. I guess the new-age thing taking it over is Pinterest. Too bad. (Not getting sucked into pinterest, by the way…)

    And I have a question that might get answered (a little scared to ask)…but what is this reference to “children of the corn”? You don’t even have to answer directly, but does it have to do with a certain TB?

    • hrh40

      My mom still takes Good Housekeeping.

      And I have no idea what pinterest is, though I certainly see a lot of tweets about it.

      Is children of the corn something to do with Stephen King novels?

      Cru is becoming the Dennis Miller of cultural references!

      • ErinMC4

        I still don’t know what pinterest is…but lots of my facebook friends have it. I feel like it is just another thing on the internet to take my attention away from life, so I’m gonna continue to stay away… :)

  • hrh40

    Great roundup, Cru. Love the history. Yay Jack Benny!

    Prayers for Firelight.

  • hrh40

    Lookie, a daughter of a politician is starting a writing gig!

    Huh. Where have I seen this going on lately?

    Note that Palin chose a neutral blogging site while Santorum did not.

    I’m going to doubt here that Hot Air would have turned down the Palin name at their blogging site.

  • section9

    There are some people over at C4P who believe that Steve Bannon’s Palin expose got spiked. This was the series of stories that were to be written by Tony Lee, Whitney, and Stacy Drake that were promised to be published earlier this week but have yet to go online at Breitbart. The stories were a series of reveals about how the GOP Establishment and Palin have been at war since 2009.

    Conversely, they may just be waiting until the Thursday news cycle begins.

    I hope that there aren’t people willing to see Palin get slimed just so they can play team ball for Mittens, because the Establishment never returns any favors.

    • hrh40

      Perhaps also waiting for OWS May Day violence stories to get full play.

      Also, POTUS’s spiking the football “surprise” trip to Afghanistan.

      These haven’t been slow news days.

      • section9

        May Day was a complete fizzle for OWS. If this was a “Spring Offensive”, than I’m Colonel Blimp.

    • John_Frank

      Read this comment by Chris over at c4p:

      Does not look like the series has been spiked. Just waiting for the right time.

      • section9

        Yah, good news. I read about Tony’s tweet. That’s quite a relief. Waiting for the Dan Savage news cycle to die down before rolling out the Palin stuff, I guess.

  • HoustonGracie1

    Thanks for the warm welcome Cru :) Busy poking around the site. Good work!!!

    Excellent roundup Crueladev. Thank you for the morning political news.

    I hope Firelight’s operation goes well.

    In other news:

    World View: Russia and China Prepare for Central Asia Meltdown when U.S. Pulls Out

    Mr. Xenakis, who posted the World View report, notes that in his speech from Kabul, “That One” told us that he has wagged his finger at the Taliban, informing them that:

    “Fourth, we’re pursuing a negotiated peace. In coordination with the Afghan government, my administration has been in direct discussions with the Taliban. We’ve made it clear that they can be a part of this future if they break with al Qaeda, renounce violence and abide by Afghan laws. Many members of the Taliban — from foot soldiers to leaders — have indicated an interest in reconciliation. The path to peace is now set before them. Those who refuse to walk it will face strong Afghan security forces, backed by the United States and our allies.”

    Mr. Xenakis opines:

    This part of his speech is a total joke. “We’ve made it clear,” he says, that the Taliban have to “break with al-Qaeda” and “renounce violence.” Oh really? Does he really believe that the Haqqani Network is going to agree to this? And what happens if the Taliban refuse to break with al-Qaeda? Will Obama then reverse his plans and move troops back into Afghanistan?

    Indeed, because shortly after “That One” left Kabul, Taliban insurgents claimed a suicide attack in the Afghan capital Kabul–hours-after-US-President-Barack-Obamas-visit

    Morning all….another bright, sunny 90 degree day in the great desert Southwest….Good luck Firelight on your operation and you didn’t ever have to go before the “death panel”. You got in just under the gun. Where is Sarah and what is she doing?    ….she hasn’t called me yet, so I dont know. She is due in Vegas in a week, so she still might stop here for a cup of coffee….Well, I off to the doc again today for more pictures. You all play nice and remember we are here to support Sarah in whatever she does, and not to fight among ourselves.

  • blackbird

     All the best Firelight.

    Thanks for the round up Crueladev and I wanted to post this story for some time now, do not know if you had seen it. Freedom and Jeff –

    Obama War Room – Special guests today: Elizabeth Warren & Dan Rather

    Obama:  I made the gutsy call to take out Bin Laden.
    Axelrod:  Yes Sir, we know.
    Valerie Jarrett:  I think the photo op was nice. You still feeling a little jet lag?
    Obama:  Yeah, didn’t sleep on the plane at all. 
    Plouffe:  Sir, I’ll be honest, I think we’ve maxed out the Bin Laden killing. 
    Obama:  Huh?  Maxed out?  What do you mean?  I made the gutsy call.  You questioning it?
    Dan Rather:  Ya know, I report on fake documents.
    Obama:  Um, Dan, what does that have to do with my gutsy call on Bin Laden?
    Rather:  It was a gutsy call on my part to do that fake documents report, that is all.
    Axelrod:  Sir, I need to pivot just a second this morning.  Elizabeth called and needs your help.  She has run into a little problem in MA about her Native American status and Brown’s people are running with it along with the media.  It isn’t going well.
    Obama:  What’s the issue?
    Axelrod:  The Republican operatives and media think she is lying.
    Rather:  Boy oh boy do I know about lying.  Can I be of service here?
    Axelrod:  Um, no thanks Dan, we’ll take it from here.  Sir, Elizabeth wants you to do a commerical or fly into MA for a fundraiser ASAP.  Can I tell her yes? 
    Obama:  Get her on the line.  I’ll talk her through this.
    Axelrod:  Right away Sir.
    Obama:  Hi Tonto, how are you?
    Elizabeth Warren:  Um, funny Sir.  Been better.  These guys are just sooooooo sexist for questioning my Native American status.  Harvard was getting blowback about their lack in minority hires and they are claiming I used that to get in and now I am getting heat for it.  How dare they?!
    Obama:  I feel your pain.
    Bill Clinton:  Hey, that’s my line!!
    Obama:  As I was saying, I feel your pain Elizabeth.  What can I do for you?
    Warren:  Well Sir, a fundraising appearance would help to start.  It also would be nice if you could bring your college transcripts along so I could prepare my statement about how you were able to run for President on good grades only and I wanted to follow your lead.  They actually think I tried to use minority status to get into Harvard and advance my own career. 
    Obama:  You’re kidding?!! 
    Palin:  I know Mr. President.  Can you even believe it?!

    • Whitney Pitcher

      Tonto. Heh.

      Michelle Malkin’s story on this is pretty funny:

      • Riley4Palin

        Whip, another good article by Malkin.  While many are afraid of “hurting feelings”, being PC, and lacking the guts to speak the truth about current events and political whoppers, we can always count on strong women like Malkin to take them to task.

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Good afternoon, all. Thanks, Cru, for the roundup, and prayers for Firelight and any others.

    Thanks for mentioning Stan Musial. One of the best baseball players to play the game, not only because he was left handed, but because he played in an era when professional athletes as a whole tended to be more humble. Musial left baseball to serve in the Navy World War II on his own accord, though he didn’t ever go into combat. One of the few things I’ve agreed with Obama on is giving Musial the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    “Children of the Corn”…we live in the cornfield of banned TAMS….the list is growing and growing and thriving.  Shocking and sad…really!
    HoustonGracie1 is the newest row we had to plow…nice to see her here.

  • Riley4Palin

    Cru, Whip & All Fans of Pat Summit – very nice article in USA Today:

    • Crueladev

      Thanks Riley…
      I just cried again…but thanks!
      I can remember watching Tyler crawling up the ladder with his Mother when he was just a kid to cut down the nets! Seems like only yesterday!

    Not a good day for the NFL.

    On the same day the NFL suspends four players for their involvement in the NO Saints bounty program, Junior Seau commits suicide.

    Very sad day for his family and friends, leaves behind three kids.

  • hrh40 has been polling possible VP picks.

    They’ve finally gotten to Sarah Palin.

    You know what to do:

    Right sidebar.

  • Riley4Palin

    My take:

    I don’t think this book has anything to do with the media actually wanting to vet Obama.  A job they failed miserably at the first time around.

    From my seat in the nosebleeds, this seems like the Obama campaign trying desperately to channel the Bill Clinton women voters because their internals are horrible.  Nothing makes insecure women scream for Obama like they did for Clinton like when they actually thought Clinton was a ladies man.  IMO, the Obamas are trying to get Lewinskys to vote in Nov by talking about Obama’s past girlfriends.  LOL

    Of course this wouldn’t be an Obama campaign without the ruthlessness of the Chicago machine talking about the ANGER of black people either.  They need to get their base voters excited again for The Won and I bet their own fingerprints are all over this new book.

    Feel free to grab the barf bags if you care to read the article.

    DUDE. Mark Lodes can’t leave me alone. LOL. I wrote about him here —> and having fun. Knowing that I’m right and he feels intimidated to tell me I’m a “dumb rock” just goes to show that a liberal Republican isn’t worth it. LOL LOL LOL

    Sorry, I’m still LOLing. I’m having too much fun with him.
