John McCain says I'm not only deplorable, but I'm also unpatriotic, practice spurious nationalism, and tired dogma...

well, okay then.

During a ceremony where he received the Liberty Medal on Monday, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) stated:
McCain said, “To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is an unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
No doubt he's taking a back-handed swipe at Trump and Trump supporters.  Other than that, I'm not even sure about what he's actually saying - and I doubt he is either.

It appears that he's trying to say putting the interests of America and the citizens of this country first is somehow wrong.

He's built an entire career by touting his service to this country that, at best, is "spurious."

John McCain is the poster boy for term limits.  He's been kicking around the body politic for about 35 years.  Politics should not be a career and a gateway to enormous wealth. 

I will say that I find it very disturbing when people hope for a speedy and painful death due to his brain tumor.  That is a perversion of the virtue of Hope.  If you find it impossible to actually pray for him, at least just pray for God's will to be done and leave it at that.

Hillary Clinton continues Obama's legacy of trashing the U.S. while in the UK...

and defends the angry whining football players "taking a knee" for the systematic racism practiced here.

Question number one:  Why is she running around the UK promoting her book?  Why should the people of Britain care one whit whether she lost the election?  For that matter, why should anyone care?  It's only important that she did lose the election. 
Hillary Clinton: You have to resist the very clear dog whistles to that base. That’s what the black athletes kneeling was about. That was not against our anthem or our flag. That was actually kneeling was a reverent position. It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system… I think it would be a grave error for Democrats to recede from those fights and so therefore we have to stand up, fight back, resist!
Speaking of dog whistles, did she just call us deplorables a bunch of racists - again?



Being an equal opportunity insulter, she hies off to Wales to essentially call them stupid and responsible for kids being bullied in school:
The former New York senator was presented with the award during a ceremony at Swansea University’s Bay Campus on Saturday for her “commitment” to promoting the rights of families and children. The university’s College of Law was also renamed the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law. 
During her acceptance speech, she claimed children were being “disadvantaged” by Brexit, and the democratic vote to leave the political bloc was the source of “bullying” in British schools.
[...]Clinton stopped over in Wales to pick up her honorary degree en route during the British leg of her What Happened book tour, during which she has gone to lengths to propagate conspiracy theories of how she lost the election, to demean Brexit voters, and to deflect criticism of her party’s longtime association with Hollywood mogul and alleged rapist and sex offender Harvey Weinstein.    source
Way to go Wales - rename your school of law after a disbarred lawyer.  Now that's something to aspire to.

After her last appearance Hillary, wearing her best horse coat swiped from a nearby paddock, and her best gal pal Huma Abedin had supper at the La Petite Maison.  Must have been one heck of a liquid dinner as she "fell and hurt her ankle" and cancelled all her interviews today.

What a vile woman.

Your Sunday Good News: ANONYMOUS DONOR BEHIND CAMPAIGN TO INSTALL NATIVITY SCENES NATIONWIDE...

let's put Christ back in Christmas.

From World Net Daily (emphasis mine)
An anonymous donor has joined with the activist group American Nativity Scene and the Thomas More Society in a campaign to provide free Nativity scenes to display at or near statehouses across the nation.
The organizers say now is the time to prepare for the displays because of the process required to obtain permission.
[...] The mission of American Nativity Scene is to place a Nativity scene within or directly outside state capitol buildings across America. Last Christmas, it provided 14 displays.
The attorneys at the Thomas More Society have defended citizens who privately fund religious displays on public property, arguing they are protected by the First and 14th Amendments of the U. S. Constitution.
The organizers explain a permanent federal injunction banning discrimination against religious speech assures that the Christmas creches are protected from erroneous applications of the widely misunderstood concept of “separation of church and state.”
American Nativity Scene says it already has shipped more than 300 scenes to 32 different states to be erected in public parks, libraries, farm roads and government buildings.  Read the rest

Outdoor Nativity Store Silhouette Outdoor Nativity Set - Holy Family Yard Scene (Standard Size)


Almost all 5 star reviews. 







I wish we had a place to put a Nativity scene outside, but our house is completely blocked from view by our landscaping.  Not to mention we're on a private road with only four houses.  I do however hang lighted stars in inside of my windows and you can see them across the field on a road a half mile away.  Check Walmart for the window stars soon because they sell out fairly fast. Ace Hardware and Lowe's usually have them too.  They only cost about $12.00 and look amazingly pretty from outside.

Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson posts conservative message on Facebook and ends up closing due to threats...

while I understand the concept of free speech, I think a cafe should just be a cafe and not make political statements.  But that's just me.

However - if they do make a statement they, their family, or their employees should not have to suffer death threats either. 

Isn't it enough to just eat somewhere else if you object.

I keep asking this, but what the hell is wrong with people?
An Arizona was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users. 
Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported. source
But what I really find appalling is the number of violent and ugly commenters calling them "racists" and threatening violence against them. 

Nothing they said is the least bit racist.  They didn't say they wouldn't serve black, green, or orange people.  They didn't say they wouldn't sell food to registered democrats.  They even specifically said they were against hate crimes and hate groups.  

Is "racist" some sort of default position for anyone who doesn't agree with you?  

Here's what they said:


Please point out the racism to me.  Thank you in advance...


Facecrap Assault


And check out this woman who just attacked me on my Facebook page - a woman I don't even know, in response to my last post on Hillary Clinton.  I have deleted the names of my friends and replaced them with question marks to protect their privacy.  

She has since deleted her parting shot.  I guess the irony finally got to her.  And guess what???  Her Facecrap page has disappeared too.  

 (?)  Heard a rumor she might become a professor at some snowflake university. Ain't that precious?

Adrienne Streeter Patrica - that is a ridiculous, inflammatory, and unnecessary thing to say to anyone -let alone someone you don't know. Didn't you just complain about the negativity of Facebook? Why don't you try begging God's forgiveness for being a negative busy body.

Patricia Gonzalez look in the mirror, Adrienne -- describing yourself -- you're describing yourself, a nasty name-caller -- typical Trump troll! I'm no snowflake, but you, madam are what you describe me as being -- I'm expressing my opinion in a free country - and I despise Trump and what he is doing to the US, simply because he is a vindictive egomaniac ripping up any good thing done by his predecessor -- gotta teach them uppity guys a lesson, doncha know! Now bugger off and let me get back to my crossword!And BTW, you spelled my name wrong!
