    I am, myself, hoping to see some shiny bikes on the road today. Like many, I cannot forget that day, or the days that followed. Everything changed.

  2. September 11th…

    It’s been 12 years since my friend, and thousands of other innocent people, were murdered on Tuesday morning, September 11th…

    It’s been five years since I wrote this post, and my feelings haven’t changed.

    I post this today in memory of my friend and all of the victims of 9/11/2001, both those seen and unseen.

    Fewer familiar faces on the train commuting than before 9-11. This place not the same either. I walk passed it every day at work.

  4. barnslayer says:

    It won’t bring anyone back, and it’s probably not very Christian but I can’t think of anything less that would make me feel a little bit of justice.

  5. zmalfoy says:

    It is fitting that our verse for the day up top is from one of my favorite psalms:
    ■Psalm 121:1-2
    “A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

    Proud defiance is in order for this day

  7. freedom1781 says:

    Threat made to State Police forcing vehicle inspections, increased patrols

    Things are getting weird around here. I think there are some sick people out there and if this a prank, the s.o.b.’s need to be punished.

  8. Hmmmm. Impeachment?
    “I say no. I prefer that we drink this cup to the dregs, take this road to its lonely end. The liberals need to undergo the whipping that they have dodged for over seven decades. The voters of this country, who have treated politics like a reality series, need to be backhanded by the world as it exists. We require a rude awakening. This country’s pols, both left and right, need to be overwhelmed with worry as to what the next day will bring. The people of this country need to be buried up to their necks in the results of their own infantilism. All the fantasy castles need to be demolished to the last stone. Liberalism must be discredited and humiliated, its adherents defeated and dispersed. The leader of the whole circus must be tormented to the human limit and beyond, forced to break down in front of the cameras as he begs for help that will not come.”

    “Liberalism has outlived its time. Obama is in the process of destroying it. Let it come down.”

      Hubby could have written that article. He wants it all to crash and burn; He can’t believe how many idiot voters there are in the country and he wants them to suffer.

      • I’m with him, and it’s getting harder to keep my opinion to myself.

        Gruntessa ran into one of our local Obama-Mamas at the mailbox yesterday, and the OM asked her if our boys were interested in babysitting for her kids. Her answer was: “busy!” My answer would have been: “Lady, if you’re so stupid and clueless and destructive that you STILL have an Obama/Biden sticker on your Jeep after all this, there is no way I’m letting any of our kids into your house. Who knows what kind of weird, fake legal trouble they’d end up in.”

    It is especially appropriate that on this day those who truly love this country band together
    The 911 Justice for Benghazi Rally Organizers Invite the ‘2 Million Bikers to DC” to Join them on Capitol Hill

    “We welcome the ‘Bikers Benghazi Brigade’
    with Open Arms to join our Justice for
    Benghazi Rally as we already have a permit.”
    — Mitchell Mason, Rally Organizer

    Can’t stop laughing…

    Number of People Who Showed Up For “Million Muslim March” . . . 21…

    Grandpa and Limpy’s hack is also a big fat lying liar! 👿

  12. texan59 says:

    Why Bronco Bama loves the green. It always goes back to Chi-town. 👿

  13. texan59 says:

    If any of you send your son to Yale, you are insane. IMHO. 👿

  14. freedom1781 says:

    Companies lay off thousands, then demand immigration reform for new labor

    Saw this over on FB! 😆

    The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and walked out into the lobby of the convention center where he was introduced to a U.S. Marine General. As they talked the Iranian said, “I have just one question about what I have seen in America.” The General said, “Well, anything I can do to help.” The Iranian whispered, “My son watches this show called Star Trek and in it there is Kirk who is Canadian, Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, Uhura who is black, and Sulu who is Japanese, but there are NO Muslims. My son is very upset and doesn’t understand why there aren’t any Iranians, Iraqis, Afghans, Egyptians, Palestinians, Saudis, Syrians, or Pakistanis on Star
    Trek.” The General laughed, leaned toward the Iranian Ambassador and whispered in his ear, “That’s because it takes place in the future…”

      Funny how oblamer’s approval rating never takes any real nosedives. Just like the WH version of the unemployment numbers. Okay actually it’s not funny. But 21 moslems (including assorted reporters and bystanders) instead of 1,000,000 is very funny.

  16. Great “connect the dots” story about what probably happened in Benghazi. From the National Patriot, via IOTW.

  17. Dis you gotta see. (Sorry, I was still thinking about Barn’s explanation. 😳 )

    Can you believe this b*tch? Rand Paul owes the pResident an apology for criticizing him in a gentlemanly way? That’s a disgrace? And she says the pResident has been “so cautious” after going and killing Bin Laden himself, with his bare hands. Wow. Hat tip: Weasel Zippers.

    This is research worth funding. 🙂

  19. texan59 says:

    This guy is an absolute nut. I don’t necessarily agree that he should be burning the korans, but I don’t exactly see where it is illegal. PC run amok. Again.
