Dear Miss Manners

Dear Miss Manners • I am engaged but have been married before. My finance has been married twice.
How do we let people know we would appreciate gift cards instead of gifts at our reception? We have three of everything.
Gentle Reader • If you have three of everything, why aren’t you thinking of sharing with those who don’t have any, instead of plotting to make others help you get even more?
And by the way, the word is “fiance,” not “finance.” Or maybe in this case, it is.

O'bama's New Americans

They are just committing the crimes americans won't commit
One of the best articles I have read in a long time.
A couple of highlights:

Will people ever rise up and make that sickening agenda-facilitating suppression of truth known as political correctness exactly what it should be: a recognized vile heresy, to be stamped out with extreme prejudice? 
Unfortunately and as has been said before, treason today is now the norm. If you don’t drink deeply of the cup of multiculturalism, internationalism, Western demographic genocide and cultural suicide, you’re a “nativist” or, worse still, a “racist,” the latter of which has just come to mean “anything bad” to young skulls full of mush whose now putrefying gray matter endured endless sanitary spin cycles in the propaganda mills masquerading as universities.

Happy Independence Day, United States of America



The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. –Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.
He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.
We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

A Little Humour......

Not quite sure if it could really be classified as humour. It is just too close to the truth.
Thanks, Dear Duffers for the email.

Today's Random Thoughts

As I read the news today:
·         The confederate flag is not my heritage so I am not bothered, however I do believe we set a dangerous precedent.  And now they are talking about taking down all the confederate monuments.  They will be erasing our history and that is never good.  I think of it as taking down all the William Wallace monuments in Scotland.
·         I do not care about who is winning in the polls today.  My state primary is in April 2016.  I will care then
·         Robert Stacy McCain wrote this: in the comments of his post Confederate Thoughts
An alternative theory: We truly are doomed beyond hope of all redemption.
The Almighty God saw fit that a Christian people should have this nation and, so long as they were faithful to God, they were preserved against all enemies. The nation they founded grew strong, prosperous and free, so that all the world marveled at America. It was foreordained by God's will, in this view, that America would endure great trouble and yet grow ever stronger.
First, we defeated Britain, overcoming the greatest empire in the world to gain our independence. We conquered the continent from coast to coast, and fought a great war amongst ourselves over the issue of human liberty. Ever stronger America grew, becoming a mighty industrial colossus. We destroyed Spain's empire in this hemisphere, and when the French and English were besieged by the Kaiser's vaunting armies, America lent its strength to defeat the power of Germany and her allies.
American emerged from the First World War victorious, her world prestige unparalleled. Surviving through a Great Depression, once against America was called to war against enemies of liberty. We crushed Hitler's Thousand Year Reich, and blasted the Japanese empire into smoldering ruins. Yet still was our nation's great mission not fulfilled.
The world now stood terrorized by the Soviet tyranny, and Communism soon raised its banner over China. A war ensued in Korea, and a great patriot from Wisconsin stood forth to warn that our nation's leadership had been subverted by agents of our worst enemies. Joe McCarthy was destroyed by the slanders of Communist stooges, yet other patriots who saw the menace of subversion realized that a new movement was needed if America was to prevail in the Cold War.
Bill Buckley, Stan Evans, Phyllis Schlafly -- to cite just three names from a roster of glorious heroes -- rallied the forces of freedom, and chose as their champion Barry Goldwater. He also went down to defeat, but not before America heard from a man destined to be the Great Champion of Freedom.
This was "A Time of Choosing," Ronald Reagan warned in 1964. It took another 16 years to elect Ronald Reagan president, but from the day he took the oath of office as Commander in Chief, the clock began ticking toward the final destruction of the Soviet Union.
Here we are then, scarcely a quarter-century after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and we find Americans seem to have forgotten everything they ought to have learned from history.
Most shockingly, America has forgotten God, who delivered us from every evil in the past, and who blessed our nation with wealth and power exceeding everything the world had previously known.
So ... we are doomed. It has suited God to bring our nation thus far, so that an ungrateful generation might forget all that God has done for us, and thus to invite the wrath of the Almighty to destroy us. If that be God's sovereign will, so be it. Yet those of us who still have faith in God must never cease to speak the truth, nor surrender to the satanic voices that bid us to aid in the works of evil now afoot.
Fight on. Stay true. And pray. Selah

Meds

No, I am not missing in action, nor have I been on a fabulous holiday.
I have not been well - I have sciatica and have been knocked down with the pain for the past few weeks.  So I am on medication. HaHaHa.  And I can't take the prescribed pain killers and work.  Well I could, but it is not wise.  And I spent too many days as a single mother on my knees asking our Lord for wisdom to throw that away.   So all my meds are taken when I get home.  At least I am sleeping.
I send myself notes about things to post here but am too tired to do so when I get home.  All of those random thoughts just put to waste.  Tis but a shame.
Another month of this before my doctor gives me the exercises.  I could start them sooner but he went on holiday.  Lucky for some, eh?

Invest in Silver!

I received this email:
Dear Trader / Investor,
Right now there is very exciting news in the silver market.
The largest investment bank in the country today is JPMorgan Chase & Co. In 2012, they held 5 million ounces of silver in their corporate account.  However, recent reports have revealed that JPMorgan Chase now holds a staggering 55 million ounces of silver! That's an increase of over tenfold in just 3 years. This April, alone, JPMorgan Chase purchased 8 million ounces. That's a lot of silver for anyone to buy--even an investment giant like JPMorgan Chase. What could they possibly know about silver that we don't?
Let me tell you what JPMorgan Chase's CEO, Jaime Dimon said in a letter to his shareholders, "Some things never change – there 'WILL BE' another crisis, and its 'IMPACT' will be felt throughout financial markets."
So here we are. The CEO of the country's largest bank is telling his shareholders - THERE WILL BE another crisis - and to protect shareholder value, they are buying silver by the hundreds of tons.
Don't you think it's time that you consider owning physical silver?
Need another reason?
$24 an ounce. That's the all-in production cost it takes the average mine to process one ounce of silver.  Right now silver is trading at around $17 an ounce. That’s nearly 30% lower than its production costs!
The last time you could purchase silver below its production costs was 2002. Guess who famously bought 30% of the world’s above ground silver supply back then?
Warren Buffett. Two years later he doubled his money.
So, JPMorgan Chase & Warren Buffett, two of the most successful investors on the planet, both stocked up on silver at a price below production cost. Buffett bought right before a crisis happened. JP Morgan is buying right before what they think will be another financial crisis.
Stocks are at record highs. Debt is soaring. Uncertainty in the world is at historic levels. Silver is on sale right now and JPMorgan Chase knows it—just like Warren Buffett knew it 2002.  Now that you know it, will you let this opportunity pass you by?

 And so now I am wondering if I should invest in silver because this product is about to hit the market:
Can these panties.....
Thinx
The entire inner lining is treated with an anti-microbial application of silver, which becomes embedded within the fibers and fights bacteria.
Now aren't you glad you read my blog today?
