   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Happy Thanksgiving to all my L.Dotter friends and their families. We are all so lucky to live in the U.S. People like you are the reason this country is so great. I often wonder about other countries, and why they are so backward. My friend was from East Germany, and the city he grew up in was over 1000 years old! We sent him off to meet his maker wearing the Proud to be an American T-Shirt he loved. I'm proud to have known him. If any of you have seen the movie "Night Crossing" you will understand what life was like for him and his family in East Germany. That movie is a true story about a family trying to escape to the west in a homemade hot air balloon. My friend got his family out in 1976. It was almost impossible, but he made it happen.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Please people, don't let the media get away with the amnesty story they are putting out. Remind people the ILLEGALS are not just here ILLEGALLY, they are committing IDENTITY THEFT. Even the President says they are working here, but doesn't mention they have to be committing IDENTITY THEFT if they are. IDENTITY THEFT and FRAUD! Ask the media if the ILLEGALS are using THEIR Social Security Number. Most people won't know their S.S.N. is being used, at least until they file for Social Security. People on Social Security have had their accounts screwed up by ILLEGALS because income has been reported on their account, when the account holder has not worked. Just try to get that straightened out!

   Hollyhock  My son had his SS# used to open a bank acct in California.

Yes, it is identity theft and fraud just like it is fraud for people to vote who are not citizens. Voter fraud is a felony. Folks who have been convicted of felonies should be denied citizenship.

Sorry about the delete but I had to fix my bad spelling.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  The city of Houston is going after 5 pastors for what they preach in their sermons. They are claiming the pastors are Homophobic, and need to be taught a lesson about being more progressive. Guess what group is not being called out. That's right none of the 10 mosques in the greater Houston area are being asked to change their stand on homosexuality. How about that!

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hey everyone it's October!!! Time for the new Obamacare insurance rates to start showing up in the mail. I received mine! Up, yes, up, 25.9%!!! I will be waiting to hear all the liberals start to howl when they get theirs. I hope they get what they deserve.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Here is a good question for your liberal friends. It will point out the difference between liberals and their "feelings" and conservatives and their "logic".
The city says "homeless people are people too, and deserve a hot shower". We therefore will offer vouchers for showers to be taken at the city pool. A city police officer visiting the city pool notices "known criminals, up to and including registered sex offenders" as well as drug offenders at the pool. Now ask your liberal friends if they would send their children to that pool? Of course they would! Homeless people are people too! Conservative logic says the liberal city compassion has ruined summer for the kids. This has happened in the city of Seaside, Oregon. Reported today in the Eugene Register Guard.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just got home from seeing the movie "America". It is worth going to see. I haven't been to a movie in years. This is because I refuse to line the pockets of the Hollywood leftists. I went to see this movie to support the telling of the truth of what America is really about. I urge everyone to go and see it for themselves.

   Fireball27  Thanks Linder. I learned quite a few things from the movie. One thing being the first woman to make a million dollars in the U.S. was a black woman. She made, and sold door to door hair care products for black women.

   Alice  Yes, D'Souza's 2014 America movie is worth seeing! It is interesting and informative. And if anyone here has watched videos of the Sopranos enough to remember, you'll smile when young Anthony Soprano's history book's author Zinn gets raked over the coals.

Pickle1 is right -- Heaven is Real is really good too! It is lovely.

My husband and I do not boycott the leftists' movies, but 99% of them are dreck aimed at young people. Crude comedies, boring explosion-chase action, and warped dramas with no redemption. We think life is hard enough and many problems tedious enough -- why pay to see more of that?

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Someone please help me understand. The mantra I heard is we will make the illegals "get in the back of the line". Can someone please tell me at what point there is a "back" of the line? Is it just behind the 1,000,000th person legally trying to enter? If so, does that mean they are cutting in front of the 1,000,001st person trying to enter legally? I know it sounds so "moderate" and p.c. to say "back of the line", but is there really such a thing? I doubt it. The so called line is never ending, and anyone wanting to gain access to this wonderful country should have to do so legally. Please point this out to the people spout this nonsense. Just my take on this, but I'm really tired of the p.c. bovine scat!

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Man I am hot right now!!! Charlie Rangle said "he doesn't think anyone is going to lose sleep over Benghazi". On the Mother site, I posted a note to Charlie. I said tomorrow is Mother's day so maybe Charlie should ask all the Mothers of diplomats stationed around the world if they will lose any sleep worrying about how our government is protecting their children. Ugh!

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Over a year ago, I mentioned here on the Connection, that my wife and several other "lunch ladies" were upset with what they were being forced to serve the kids per Mrs. Obama's involvement. Today there is an article on "The Blaze" that explains what has happened. My wife retired one year earlier than she was intending to because of this. Having to serve what the administration was putting forth was just too much. She was proud of the food they used to serve and our school district was one of the top two in our state. Then came the Obama's. Imagine working your whole career, trying to put out the best product and succeeding, and have someone come along and make your job miserable, and put out garbage. 37 years and the last one was, well the last straw.
So sad. At least the students are speaking out. And they are seeing who did this to them.

   Safetydude  Agreed Top, and we as American Citizens and voters have allowed it.

Maybe it's time for a change.

I don't think Thomas Jefferson actually wanted a revolution every tweny years but he did write something like ...'the tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Paitriots and Tyrants'...

When do we reach that tipping point?

I hope the Obama administration is that tipping point and there will be, at least, a small change this November.

Lonestar,

I agree that Texans are like that.

This is not something limited to Texas. Rick Perry may be the Steward of Texas but the President, along with Congress, is supposed to be the Steward of the whole country. And the President's job is to see that there is a country to hand over to his successor.

I don't think two-hundred-million Americans will fit in Texas. We need to save the whole country.

Maybe 'Big Sis' was right when she feared Veterans.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I'm having nothing but trouble trying to read articles on the mother site. Pop up ads for updates keep popping up, not allowing you to stay on the article. If you X them out, and get back to the article you were reading, by the time you find the last line you read, the pop ups come up again. I checked with my IT guys, and they said it was the web site. So please Lucianne, get this fixed.

   Iraengneer  The adblock works fine on my desktop (Windows 8.1 ) and my Android tablet running the newest FireFox. On my new (and previous ) Android smartphones (Samsung ), using the embedded browser, it's a never-ending series of what is approximating a highjack. And it is ONLY on the Main site and here. I hit the "back" rather than the popup's "cancel" option (I don't trust these vile bums ) and it keeps coming back. USED to have the problem on the tablet before the latest FireFox update, even had one occasion on the Main Site here that actually did a full system reset on me! Sent the info to Luis, six months ago. Perhaps I'll get a response some day Real Soon Now. The problem has not gone away, that is certain. Earlier problems seemed to be related to the awful over-use of misbehaving JavaScript routines. Enough already!
