A Day With the Obamas

The final stage of terminal nausea is settling in. I don’t know how much longer I can do this.

Queen Forces Obama to Reduce His Carbon Footprint… Banned Half of Obama’s Choppers from Landing on Windsor Lawns


The Queen called Obama’s bevy of choppers “over the top”, meaning the Secret Service had to rethink their plans to land about six aircraft in the 300-year-old gardens of her main residence.

“It was a write-off and the Queen was not amused,” ‘Daily Express’ quoted a royal source as saying.

“Her Majesty refused to back down and said, ‘three helicopters only’. The Secret Service had to go away and think about their plan. The President’s officials were told that the Queen regarded Windsor Castle as her family home and the most important of all royal residences,” the report said.

Democrats Allow Voting By Felons to Help Hillary Clinton

McAuliffe is a lifelong best friend of the Clintons. This wasn’t subtle. There was no attempt to hide or disguise what just happened. This is clearly his gift to his close friend Hillary. The Governor of Virginia just added 200,000 low-lifes and dirt-bags to the voter rolls in Virginia to try to steal the election for his buddy Hillary.

Funny how these things work when you’re tone deaf to what this looks like to good, hard-working, law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.

Democrat Governor McAuliffe’s new law applies to any convicted felon…even violent felons…even felons from other states now living in Virginia.

It doesn’t just allow them to vote — this new law allows them to run for office, serve on a jury, or become a notary public.

Obama And The Brave New World…

Obama tried virtual reality this weekend with his occasional frenemy Angela Merkel at an industrial technology trade fair in Hanover, Germany. He reportedly reacted to the technology by saying that it was a “brave new world.”

YOUNG Pro-Lifers are so awesome!

Pro Life protesters - young

The majority of our young people are Abortion Abolitionists!

Back in the 1990s, the 18-29-year-olds were the age group most supportive of unrestricted legal abortion. Nowadays, this group is more Pro-Life than their parents’ age group (30-49), though not as Pro-Life as their grandparents’ age group (50-64).

  • 2003: A Gallup poll found 79% of Americans between the ages of 13 and 17 believe abortion should be illegal or limited to only the rare rape-incest-life of mother exceptions.
  • 2008: A New York Times, CBS News, MTV sponsored poll found that 62% of Americans under 30 said abortion should be illegal or limited to only the rare rape-incest-life of mother exceptions.

Personally, I’m a almost-no-exceptions person on this issue.

LIFE: I know there are situations in which a pregnancy poses a clear and present danger to the mother’s life.  In those situations, I believe the OB/GYN should treat both patients aggressively, not just kill off the one who has no say in the matter.  I would support legal termination ONLY where the possibility of a live birth is NIL (ectopic pregnancy, for example).

RAPE: Two wrongs don’t make a right.Where else does anyone think that killing an innocent bystander/witness to a crime is justified or would/could/should make the victim of that crime feel better? And who supports killing the rapist himself? Anyone?

The only major study of pregnant rape victims ever done found that 75-85% of women who conceived as a result of rape chose life. I’ve also read personal testimony by women who regret choosing to abort for this reason. The most compelling quotation by a woman explained why she was having a harder time recovering from the abortion than from the rape. “I was a victim of the rapist, but I chose to kill my child.”

INCEST: writes:

The case against abortion of incest pregnancies is even stronger. Studies show that incest victims rarely ever voluntarily agree to an abortion. Instead of viewing the pregnancy as unwanted, the incest victim is more likely to see the pregnancy as a way out of the incestuous relationship because the birth of her child will expose the sexual activity. She is also likely to see in her pregnancy the hope of bearing a child with whom she can establish a true loving relationship, one far different than the exploitive relationship in which she has been trapped.

But while the incest victim may treasure her pregnancy because it offers her hope of release, and the hope of finding a nurturing love, her pregnancy is a threat to the exploiter. It is also a threat to the pathological secrecy which may envelop other members of the family who are afraid to acknowledge that the abuse is occurring. Because of this dual threat, the victim may be coerced into an unwanted abortion by both the abuser and other family members.

For example, Edith Young, a 12-year-old victim of incest impregnated by her stepfather, writes twenty-five years after the abortion of her child: “Throughout the years I have been depressed, suicidal, furious, outraged, lonely, and have felt a sense of loss… The abortion which was to ‘be in my best interest’ just has not been. As far as I can tell, it only ‘saved their reputations,’ ‘solved their problems,’ and ‘allowed their lives to go merrily on.’… My daughter, how I miss her so. I miss her regardless of the reason for her conception.”

2016_04 25 Boycott Target

On its web site this week, Target announced, “[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. … Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”

This means a man can simply say he “feels like a woman today” and enter the women’s restroom, including men who are actually sexual predators.

If you agree with me that Target’s policy is unacceptable, sign this petition.

This is not a made up concern designed to cover some alleged prejudice against transgenders.  I grew up in one of the most liberal towns in the country.  I DON’T CARE if a man wants to dress as a woman or vice versa.  At, there is a list of links to real news stories about cross-dressing men abusing women in public bathrooms.

Unisex bathroom

I DO CARE about people with special needs having access to comfortable and safe public restrooms.  I would cheer Target or any other entity that installed single occupancy bathrooms.  It’s the obvious solution to many potty issues.

Our local mall installed one way back when my girls were little.  It was spacious enough for any handicapped person and attendant(s).  I had no trouble with my double stroller and I appreciated the toilet without walls that made it easy for me to help my newly trained toddlers perch on the seat.  And when the girls shopped with just their dad, he could either choose to come in and help or else stand guard outside.

While I was making the graphic, it occurred to me that this facility would be a welcome relief to shy urinaters and also to child care workers shepherding multiple children.  I expect there are lots of other people with special needs who would benefit.

You Might Be a Liberal…

… if you think adult college students should be protected from hearing or seeing things they disagree with, but children using public bathrooms should not be protected from hearing or seeing things that could traumatize them.

Also, Leftists tried to suppress study results because they show that fracking is “a safe source of jobs, prosperity and low-cost energy.” They find this result “disappointing.” That says a lot about the Left, no?

“Geologists at the University of Cincinnati just wrapped up a three-year investigation of hydraulic fracturing and its impact on local water supplies.

“The result? There’s no evidence—zero, zilch, nada—that fracking contaminates drinking water. Researchers hoped to keep these findings secret.

“Why would a public research university boasting a top-100 geology program deliberately hide its work? Because, as lead researcher Amy Townsend-Small explained, ‘our funders, the groups that had given us funding in the past, were a little disappointed in our results. They feel that fracking is scary and so they were hoping our data could point to a reason to ban it’.”

Surprisingly, this story made it into Newsweek.

Gender Bending: It’s About Hating God

Gender bending

Pope Benedict XVI called gender bending “a profound falsehood.”

Austrian Bishop Andreas Laun reports that, in a personal conversation with him, Pope Francis called gender bending “demonic.”

Paying attention to pH

When I first encountered the idea that body pH was important to health, it made total sense to me. I have been keeping tropical fish for many years and, as all enthusiasts know, maintaining the right* pH in the tank is critical to keeping the fish healthy. Organic waste is acidifying, so as the fish eat, pee, and poo, the water becomes increasingly acidic. Timely water changes are a must for success.

Other things I’ve picked up along the way …

  • A healthy human body is slightly alkaline.
  • Diseases thrive in an acid environment, including diabetes, cancer, arteriosclerosis, and chronic fatigue.
  • Minerals buffer pH, which suggests to me that acidity also causes bone loss.
  • The more acidic my pH is, the higher my pain levels are.

Dearest and I have been working for a long time now to shift our diets to the right on this chart. It gets easier the longer we stick with it, because the foods one eats seem to become the foods one prefers. Plus, the personal connection I have made between pain and pH has been a huge incentive for me to eliminate coffee and only take OTC meds when I can’t get my symptom level low enough naturally** to get a decent night’s sleep.

Acid Alkaline foods chart

I’m going to try this recipe tomorrow. It looks yummy and we have all the ingredients on hand.

*Fish tank pH: Each species of fish has its preferred pH, based on where it comes from in the wild. It’s important to choose fish that are not only compatible socially, but that also need the same pH. The simplest and cheapest thing is to stock only those fish that thrive in the pH that comes out of your tap. A pH test kit costs less than $10. If you want a happy, healthy, beautiful tank, you should test the tank pH often enough to learn how much and how often to do water changes.

**Naturally: I use stuff like prayer and meditation, light exercise (mostly stretching to relieve muscle cramping from pain), epsom salt foot soaks, magnesium oil and essential oil massage, essential oil diffusion, supplements (herbs, vitamins, mineral), and some tonics I mix up myself that I’ve found helpful.
