    Mornin’ everyone. Really nice day here. It is almost 70* but with low humidity. Very comfortable. Everybody surviving Election Week? President Trump warned us about this and Pelosi told us they were going to cheat, big time.

    My friend told me why the protestors left this area back in the summer. As long as they were peacefully protesting in the right areas, they were left alone. But, then they went to the freeway to block traffic. At that point, our wonderful Sheriff Grady Judd told them to leave or his deputies would start shooting. They believed him. LOL, and left. We have had no more problems that I have heard about.

    Well, looky there – – –

    I guess it all depends on the timing.

    One twitter response:

    “And now Ted Wheeler sees no benefit to them rioting and is cracking down immediately. People in that city were used for politics. Businesses were damaged for politics. So gross man.

      That’s right. People – on both sides – were used for leftist political purposes.

        It’s not a surprise, but it’s a gut punch to understand, again, that when we point out the worst things about their methods, their goals, and their perspectives, we are not in much danger of exaggerating the ugliness.

        • When researching how to open the minds of people such as relatives who just get hysterical about orange man bad even though they actually agree with most of his policies, I was reading what a person who survived one of the revolutions in South America wrote (maybe Chile?). He said the brainwashed useful idiots (and I’m guessing that includes the brainwashed rioters) will not give up their fantasy until they are going through dumpsters looking for food to eat. How sad.

          You’re unfortunately not much in danger of many of them giving a dang either, near as I can tell.

          • Afternoon Menagerie, Yes I think many are homeless, drug addicted, have mental problems, and may already be eating out of the trash or at all from the looks of some of the mug shots.

            It probably sounds harsh, but the truth often does, I think some % of the above problems stem from too many “social safety nets” giving tax money to capable people. How many people, if they knew ahead of time there was no welfare for capable adults, only welfare for those in asylums, the underage orphans and severely disabled, would they even try the drugs? I’m sure a small number, but this lifestyle of drugs and night time rioters is supported by our tax dollars paying for them through welfare. Growing up even the lower capability men worked for the town shoveling sidewalks and picking up trash. They were respected, because they worked doing a good service. We need to go back to that.

            • Last thing – Imagine how much more money we would have for our own needs, for the truly needy unable to care for themselves, or how much lower the national debt along with our own debt would be if people earned their welfare benefits just like we earn the money to pay for them & their benefits. When Maine stopped giving welfare benefits to capable adults with no children, their welfare rolls dropped by almost 70%.

              “You can vote for candidates who support abortion on demand, and you can personally oppose abortion.”.
              – That is a paraphrase of a comment by the Pope.

  6. ‘All that is needed for evil to flourish is for good men (& women) to do nothing’. and I add: ‘or do the bare minimum’. I know many here are of retirement age, have medical problems, and have already done much, but for those who can, including our beloved lurkers, we must all become activists to the best of our capabilities. Many of those on the other side are. That is how evil flourishes. Yes they cheat and are violent, but bullies are cowards, and cheating can be exposed and stopped. They are vocal, organized, and active – many of us are not.

    I posted this yesterday next door: “I am most angry at the people who are conservatives, know what is going on, but do nothing except usually vote. They go on vacations, watch tv & sports, but somehow are too cowardly to become activists, run for office, or work/volunteer in important positions.

    If God is merciful enough to give us 4 more years of a chance to slow the decay of this country, EVERYONE had better give up their excuses, organize and ACT! Otherwise YOUR OWN LIVES along with those of your children and grandchildren will be a misery, and you have no one to blame but YOURSELF.

    I personally know there are people like this that read here, and that is to whom this is directed.”

    Remember the cost paid for our country. Recounts, lawsuits, standing in line, volunteering or running for even ‘minor’ local offices are nothing in comparison.

    May God bless those who fight for His way, give courage to those who are afraid to, and change the hearts of those who do not love Him.

    I have to run. I had a back injury in July that disabled me through Sept on top of everything else, and have so much to catch up on! Will try to pop in when i can, but once I start, you all are like potato chips – I just can’t respond to one!
    Have a Great Day, Have Faith, Be of Good Cheer everyone! 🙂

    Dear Democrats:

    “Election fraud is very rare,” is not an argument.

    My Dad was breathing on his own on Thursday and the OTs & PTs working him to near exhaustion. And he is eager to take it on. I arrived home a couple of hours ago.

    My Dad had a massive stroke 3 years ago. He had to learn to swallow, chew, and everything else that comes with it. He did his full 100 days of treatment. That means he made progress every day, something almost unheard of. Some of the people working with him had heard about something like that but never had seen it. A truly Olympic effort on his part. He also thought he could go back to living on his own, but that did not happen.
