Attacking the people that exposed Planned Parenthood of trafficking in human body parts

CEO of Company That Worked with Planned Parenthood Admits To Selling ‘Intact’ Aborted Babies – Report

The disturbing part of all this is that California is more concerned with prosecuting the reporters Daleiden and Merritt, who blew PP nefarious activities wide open than the subsequent revelations of PP confirming that they were , in fact, doing just that!

It throws a whole new light on just how odd California is and where their true morays lie IMHO. The Stem Express admissions are almost matter of fact. It seems to me that this should generate some serious charges of illegal activities on the part of PP. But for now it looks to me like California is locked on to prosecuting the reporters for invading PP privacy.

This is insane.

 

We need to support the HAVEN Act

Bankrupt vets can lose their disability benefits. This new effort would protect them.

Read more here – HAVEN Act 

The Honoring American Veterans in Extreme Need (HAVEN) Act seeks to create the same immunity in bankruptcy cases for benefits provided by the VA and Department of Defense to disabled veterans and their surviving spouses.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, introduced the bill, which has already been endorsed by 10 Republican and 10 Democratic senators. It has also earned the support of organizations like the American Legion, Disabled Veterans of America and the American Bankruptcy Institute, among others.
“Right now, veterans and their families are forced to dip into their disability-related benefits to pay off bankruptcy creditors,” said Baldwin during an unveiling event for HAVEN in her Senate office. “And that’s not right. This reform will protect veterans’ disability benefits when they fall on hard times.”

And the garden is in too!

It’s planting time!

After a bit of a wait for the weather / calendar to dictate prepping and planting the garden spot, the time has arrived! Cause Faye Dean says so ! That’s why! And Yeah! For now it looks like a nice big square of dirt! But it is a very nice square of dirt!

It didn’t take much but I got it done in a few hours. A rental tiller made short work of the primary prep. And with everything blended in and leveled it was time for the planting. This year we are keeping it simple but trying some new stuff. As usual tomatoes are a primary choice. This year we are adding carrots, radishes, onions and beets. Never done these veggies before so we shall see how it works out.

Some flowers, too!

And while we were at it we did some planting in the front of the house. Mostly added Lilies. And filled the wagon planter with some mixed garden seeds. We will see how well they do in the wagon.

Only thing left to do is the daily watering and then just watch it happen. So stay tuned to see the results.

 

RIP Our Companion, Snoop Dog

We have released Snoop Dog to his next great adventure

After serving as our companion for over 16 years we have released Snoopy to pursue his next adventure. That is to search out and reunite with his past companions Blue and Freckles. He was also released from his physical detriments and his cancer. Both of which he lived through uncomplaining. While his release is not without some pain to us it is a beginning of his new adventure. Wherever it is he will be looking down on us we are sure. Along with Blue and Freckles.

Snoop, we all loved you for 16 years and you loved us back and protected us unfailingly. We will miss you. A lot!

RIP my Buddy!

 

The Carlos Santana concert was outstanding. Except …

vuku_2

Except for a political injection in the middle of the concert

All in all it was a great night out with my daughter on Wednesday night at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill. As expected Carlos Santana was awesome with his diverse guitar work. And his notable style . The set included some new works and , of course , the classics.

The only thing that did get my attention was that during a set about peace, love and understanding,  he injected a monologue on the subject. By nature it was expected because he professes that theme and has for years. Unfortunately it included a commentary about how the government, the pentagon and others feed us BS. And that President Trump and North Korea just need to get along.

My take on this

What caught my ire was that it was all well and good until the political injection. I guess you can feel any way you want but I don’t need to have it thrown at me in the middle of a musical concert and as a captive audience. It seems that it has become commonplace for musicians, actors and other media “personalities” to hit me over the head with their take on events both political and social. You are entitled to your own opinion but I don’t remember using them as a guideline for making my own opinions.

Getting a reaction

In this case it was subtle and only mildly abrasive. But when you have Ashley Judd going media ballistic over being called “sweetheart” at an airport now you are going off the rails. And you get it every day from every corner from so called “celebrities” that just gotta say something about something because it is cool. Who cares?!

Unfortunately, more often than not, it creates a firestorm of controversy which gets them the attention they wanted but from both sides, good and bad. Many of these personalities you could care less about. Many times you have no clue who the hell they are! And for anyone that was neutral about them it just pushed some to distance them from that personality. And I am that way also.

Enough of my rant

I guess I just did what I was just talking about! Oh well! On with it! The concert was a musical festival of Carlos Santana at his best and despite the political injection a great time out.

Just one mans opinion.

Daddy, what was it like in the Navy?

…How to simulate life on board a US Navy Ship…

1. Buy a steel dumpster, paint it gray inside and out, and live in it for six months.

2. Run all the pipes and wires in your house exposed on the walls.

3. Repaint your entire house every month.

4. Renovate your bathroom. Build a wall across the middle of the bathtub and move the shower head to chest level. When you take showers, make sure you turn off the water while you soap down.

5. Put lube oil in your humidifier and set it on high.

6. Once a week, blow compressed air up your chimney, making sure the wind carries the soot onto your neighbor’s house. Ignore his complaints.

7. Once a month, take all major appliances apart and then reassemble them.

8. Raise the thresholds and lower the headers of your front and back door so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through them.

9. Disassemble and inspect your lawnmower every week.

10. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, turn your water heater temperature up to 200 degrees. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, turn the water heater off. On Saturdays and Sundays tell your family they use too much water during the week, so no bathing will be allowed.

11. Raise your bed to within 6″ of the ceiling, so you can’t turn over without getting out and then getting back in.

12. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your spouse whip open the curtain about 3 hours after you go to sleep, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and say “Sorry, wrong rack.”

13. Make your family qualify to operate each appliance in your house – dishwasher operator, blender technician, etc.

14. Have your neighbor come over each day at 0500, blow a whistle so loud Helen Keller could hear it, and shout “Reveille, reveille, all hands heave out and trice up.”

15. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she’s going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in your back yard at 0600 while she reads it to you.

16. Submit a request chit to your father-in-law requesting permission to leave your house before 1500.

17. Empty all the garbage bins in your house and sweep the driveway three times a day, whether it needs it or not.

18. Have your neighbor collect all your mail for a month, read your magazines, and randomly lose every 5th item before delivering it to you.

19. Watch no TV except for movies played in the middle of the night. Have your family vote on which movie to watch, then show a different one.

20. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone shouting that your home is under attack and ordering them to their battle stations. (Now general quarters, general quarters, all hands man your battle

stations.)

21. Make your family menu a week ahead of time without consulting the pantry or refrigerator.

22. Post a menu on the kitchen door informing your family that they are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for an hour. When they finally get to the kitchen, tell them you are out of steak, but they can have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they ignore the menu and just ask for hot dogs.

23. Bake a cake. Prop up one side of the pan so the cake bakes unevenly.

Spread icing real thick to level it off.

24. Get up every night around midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on stale bread. (midrats)

25. Set your alarm clock to go off at random during the night. At the alarm, jump up and dress as fast as you can, making sure to button your top shirt button and tuck your pants into your socks. Run out into the backyard and uncoil the garden hose.

26. Every week or so, throw your cat or dog in the pool and shout “Man overboard port side!” Rate your family members on how fast they respond.

27. Put the headphones from your stereo on your head, but don’t plug them in. Hang a paper cup around your neck on a string. Stand in front of the stove, and speak into the paper cup “Stove manned and ready.” After an hour or so, speak into the cup again “Stove secured.” Roll up the headphones and paper cup and stow them in a shoebox.

28. Place a podium at the end of your driveway. Have your family stand watches at the podium, rotating at 4 hour intervals. This is best done when the weather is worst. January is a good time.

29. When there is a thunderstorm in your area, get a wobbly rocking chair, sit in it and rock as hard as you can until you become nauseous. Make sure to have a supply of stale crackers in your shirt pocket.

30. For former engineers: bring your lawn mower into the living room, and run it all day long.

31. Make coffee using eighteen scoops of budget priced coffee grounds per pot, and allow the pot to simmer for 5 hours before drinking.

32. Have someone under the age of ten give you a haircut with sheep shears.

33. Sew the back pockets of your jeans on the front.

34. Lock yourself and your family in the house for six weeks. Tell them that at the end of the 6th week you are going to take them to Disney World for “liberty. At the end of the 6th week, inform them the trip to Disney World has been canceled because they need to get ready for an inspection, and it will be another week before they can leave the house.
