WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT

The fascinating thing about my regular Thursday breakfast with my kin is you’re never quite sure who will show up. This morning it was me, Uncle Bob, Uncle Roger, my cousin Trish, and my cousin Pam’s daughter, Carrie, who I haven’t seen since she was a little girl. She’s 32 and has two children. She works at a mega-church thrift store in town. We spent more than an hour eating and being peppered with questions from Carrie about the family history. There is a chalk portrait in her mother’s home she never realized was of her mother, Pam, done by my mom. She seemed enthralled by all the things she never knew and I look forward to seeing her again. I consider it of utmost importance to pass on the history of the family so when we pass on the history of who we are and where we came from can live on.

The world is a cold, hard place, unfeeling and uncaring. Many days I don’t even check what’s going on because everything seems to be wrong. It’s at a point where nothing matters much anymore outside of my faith and my family. I will still post the usual stuff as the spirit moves. God bless you all.

    Vets outraged: Hillary says it DISHONORS military to hold her accountable for Benghazi
    IT’S THE VAST RIGHT-WING CONSPIRACY,BITCH!

    Does this woman have any shame?

    Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton took offense to remarks by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that the ongoing House select committee investigation into the Benghazi attacks is hurting her campaign, and used members of the U.S. military as political pawns in disparaging the probe.

    Clinton appeared Wednesday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and told host Al Sharpton that McCarthy’s comment “demonstrates unequivocally that this was always meant to be a partisan political exercise.

    Restaurant Refuses Service To Soldier For Carrying Firearm
    LET HER TELL THAT TO THE NIGRA THAT COMES IN TO ROB THE PLACE WITH A GUN
    When Welch finished ordering his food, a waitress signaled for him to come over.

    “I got up and I walked over to them, asked them how they were doing and stuff, and they said I’d have to take my firearm outside,” Welch told Lex 18. “I don’t feel comfortable taking my firearm away from me. I always keep it with me and they said, ‘it’s one of our policies.’
    Welch told the waitress he could not leave his weapon outside.

    Is An Unborn Baby With a Human Heart a Human Being? Pelosi: ‘I Do Not Intend to Respond’

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said at her press briefing today that she did not intend to respond to the question of whether an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver is a human being and that the question has “no basis” in the public policy they do in Congress.

    Obama Regime Deports 22 Iraqi Christians After Denying Them Asylum…
    While granting 4,200 Syrian Muslims asylum.

    Iraqi Christians fleeing persecution at the hands of ISIS are being turned away at the American border despite having family sponsors – as thousands of Muslims are granted asylum.

    At least 27 of the targeted minority, known as Chaldeans, have been held in detention in San Diego since entering through the Mexican border this spring.

    Powell: ‘I Want to Continue to Be a Republican Because It Annoys Them’
    IT’S WORKING,YOU DESPICABLE INGRATE.YOU ANNOY THE HELL OUT OF ME.

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed President Obama in 2008 and 2012, told the Washington Ideas Forum that there’s a special reason why he doesn’t change his party affiliation.

    Powell confirmed that he’s still a registered Republican. “I want to continue to be a Republican because it annoys them,” he quipped.

    • Believe it or not, I’m still a registered Democrat. I just never changed it from the salad days of my bomb-throwing youth, and now I use it to vote for the least likely Dem candidate as my token protest in their primaries (e.g. Mickey Kaus over Barbara Boxer). If all Republicans would register as Democrats tomorrow, we could ensure Deez Nuts wins their nomination!

    CNN: Biden out of Dem debate
    I HEARD ON THE RADIO THE OTHER MORNING THAT IN SOME POLL CRAZY UNCLE JOE BEAT EVERY REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE.
    EVEN A FOUL-MOTHED BUFFOON CAN GET VOTES

    According to CNN, Joe Biden will not appear at the first Democratic presidential debate, scheduled for October 13th in Las Vegas. The current Vice President has decided that he can wait even longer before making a decision about entering the presidential race, Jeff Zeleny reports, although maybe Zeleny should dump the “window” analogy:

    Iran female soccer team accused of manning up

    Eight players on national team, which plays in hijab and full body covering, revealed to be members of wrong gender
    ALLAHU YUCKY-POO
    He claimed that some of the men had enjoyed a whole career as female players and only outed themselves just before retiring from their teams.

    It was not clear how many of the national squad players were born as men or how long they had been playing before their surplus credentials were uncovered. Iranian female footballers notably play wearing hijab head scarves and outfits that fully cover their arms and legs.
    Sharifi accused Iranian football’s governing body of being responsible for the “unethical” cock up.

    Trump: Rubio and Jeb Playing Nice Is ‘Political Bulls–t’
    Donald Trump doesn’t buy that Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have a good relationship with each other and got a little profane during his New Hampshire speech tonight talking about it.

    He did his usual anti-politician rant and talked about how Bush is viewed as Rubio’s “mentor,” so the assumption was that the latter wouldn’t run against the former. The fact that he did, Trump said, is “disloyal.”

    Valerie Jarrett Throws Hillary Under the Bus on Email Scandal

    “Yes, there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said when asked if the White House sent guidance to Cabinet secretaries about not using private email. “Obviously we want to make sure that we preserve all government records, and so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email that it should be turned over.”

    • It’s not so much that Hillary supporters are stupid, but rather the interviewer phrased the questions to encourage confirmation bias. He could have used Cruz, Trump, Biden, whomever and generated the same results.

      Also, Trump’s tax plan was only a day or two old, and even today how many have actually read and memorized his position paper? And how many people were interviewed to arrive at these four?

      The easiest game in the world is to make other people look stupid. Bless these folks for being good sports about it.

    • Take hormones, don’t take ’em … either way it doesn’t really change the fact that life is hard and the choices we make create as many problems as solutions. And as long as it’s not another excuse for some stranger’s hand in my wallet, a Detroit 14-year-old can become a deep-sea fisherman or a prima ballerina and my world remains unaffected.

    Trey Gowdy puts Planned Parenthood boss through the wringer; wipes the smile off her face
    IT SEEMS TO ME GOWDY IS A PAPER TIGER.HE’S ALL JOHN WAYNE CHAIRING A COMMITTEE THAT WILL NEVER INDICT ANYBODY BUT WHEN A GROUP OF CONSERVATIVE REPS ASKED HIM TO STAND FOR SPEAKER AGAINST UBER-RINO KEVIN McCARTHY HE TURNED THEM DOWN.TOO MUCH IMPORTANT BUSINESS TO DO TO ACTUALLY LEAD.
    n trademark Gowdy style, the South Carolina Republican attempted to make Richards understand why some people oppose Planned Parenthood’s continued killing of unborn babies, but Richards was smug and defiant.

    Until one exchange when she said, with a smile, “We don’t believe that women’s health or women’s rights should be a partisan issue.”

    “And we don’t think eating dinner salads and drinking wine while you’re discussing infanticide…we have a problem with that too,” Gowdy fired back, wiping the smile off of her face.

      I have read somewhere that Trey Gowdy really wants to be appointed to a federal judgeship and he doesn’t want to do anything so extreme in that committee as to make him look like he is too political, etc. for the job.
