   MsCharlotteVale posted on Main Page The Lobby  Re the "800,000 children" who got dragged to America from down south; that number doesn't even cover it. According to stats, the majority of illegal immigrant children don't graduate from HS, much less go to lawyer school. They rely heavily on govt services. Too, they're not hiding in the shadows as our pols/activists are so fond of telling us. I see them everyday, everywhere and they're living large. Theyn were given the green light years ago. Some years ago I read that they transfer billions back to their home countries every year via Western Union. While their relatives improve their lives in Mexico, we taxpayers are picking up the tab for education, food and housing (among other bennies ). As I keep saying, it's all unsustainable. Refer to Cloward-Piven if you don't know what I mean.

   Escaped commieny  They are lined up at the Customer Service line at Walmart cashing their checks and sending money orders to Mexico. Years ago I called on the Florida farms, before I got the company truck, I drove a white ford Tempo, just like ICE. Hysterical, pull in,see hundreds of heads in the field just, poof, disappear.

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Main Page The Lobby  It's become clear to me that people in Congress are afraid of the administration (for whatever reasons ) and/or they're afraid of repercussions if they in any way censure Bari Kardashian. Although I deplore violence, I'm at the point where I'd say, "Bring it on, draw your line in the sand." After it's all done, we'll go from there. I don't want to be held hostage by X% of 13% of the population. My ancestors didn't own slaves so what do you want from me? I owe you nothing. Unlike Bari and Mooche, I actually picked cotton when I was young, as did my parents. My dad fought in the Battle of the Bulge and he wasn't ashamed to pick cotton because he was an older vet and couldn't get a job. (His retirement pay in '59 wasn't even $100 per month. ) I also worked in the school lunchroom when I was 12 in order to pay for my lunch. I'm not complaining, I enjoyed it but I'm saying "Look how far we've come."

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Movies & Reviews  I grew up watching B&W movies from the '30s-'40s and there are so many movies I really love. Too long of a list to post here. My favorite movie is Now, Voyager and every time I watch it it resonates with me. I love Bette Davis's movies and also The Quiet Man, GWTW, Fiddler on the Roof, The Manchurian Candidate (original ), The Ghost and Mrs Muir, Sunset Blvd, Miracle in the Rain and all of those glossy soap opera movies from the '50s; An Affair to Remember, Peyton Place, Madame X, "own and own." hahaha,

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Pet Peeves  Nowadays I'm always amazed when I dial a phone number and a live person answers (whether business or person ). Sometimes it confuses me and it takes me several seconds to regroup and speak. When I'm dialing a #, I'm always mentally composing a message to leave. hahaha.

   Linder  Yesterday, I was dealing with a utilities company problem and tried to go through the computer generated system for an answer. No luck until I remembered at the beginning of the call I had been asked to press a certain number if I were not a customer of the company. So I hung up and dialed anew and this time pressed that button and sure enough the company thought they were going to sign on a new customer and answered with a live person. The rep solved my problem. I'm going to use that tactic from now on.

   MsCharlotteVale  I've tried to call govt entities and have been hung up on. If I don't know who I need to talk to, how do I know what extention to press? I think it's all deliberate. If you can't get through, they're not bothered one whit.

   Hollyhock  WSI mentioned the huge money laundering influence from California. I am watching for the California state AG being set up for a Supreme Court appointment. It's a hunch but I believe she is a muslim. I also think California is getting ready to ask for a bailout. What do you think? This is beyond corruption. Ulsterman's regular commenters have figured out a lot. I check it out every day too.

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Main Page The Lobby  That must read on the main site about the "slobbing down" of America is a great thread! I could write a book on the subject. I remember when parents, schools and churches would teach us to wear our Sunday best to go to a job interview even if you were applying to dig ditches or change tires. I've been offended by people wearing short shorts to church. We no longer know how to show reverence or respect. So many parents no longer teach morals and manners. Probably because they weren't taught themselves. One of the most offensive trends is having pajama days at schools. These "educators" are either stupid or evil. What is their mindset?

   MsCharlotteVale  When I was a senior in HS, we had "dress up" Friday, just for seniors. We were allowed to wear high heels and the boys wore suits and the girls wore their best Sunday dresses. That was the thing I loved most about being a senior, getting to wear high heels to school.

   Nugoddess  When I went to school, boys had to wear ties to school back in the day (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. ) My mother used to wear heels and hose when visiting the bank.

I do not ''dress up'' as much as I should but I am clean and presentable in public and I do know how to dress like an adult.

   Persecutor2  Sadly, Nu, I have kind of let myself slide in the "dress up" category too. At my youngest son's commissioning ceremony, he asked me to be up on the stage with him to put on his shoulder boards, and my oldest son to put the bars on his beret. I honestly felt like I would be one of the better dressed folks in my khakis and dress shirt, and my older son wore jeans( yeah, the one who used to put on a tie to go to Wal-Mart ). Happily, but a bit embarrassingly to me, most of the other dads/moms/girlfriends, etc were nicely dressed, making me wish I had follwed my wife's advice and worn a jacket and tie too. I will say that my son considered my attire to be fine, as well as his older brother's--but still...

   Belwhatter  It's this attitude of anything goes. Young people on the whole have no dress sense whatsoever -witness the local college students who are an ongoing testament to crappy dressing - from minimal to unsuitable to downright frumpy. This not only affects their attitude but mine among others too.

   Escaped commieny  I wear a dress to Mass, DH suit and tie. BUT, when I go to Walmart, (5 miles from Sanford ) I dress WAY down (clean ) but no indication of any 'money', I don't want to get mugged by the 300 lb, blue acrylic 4 in nails, ruby red dyed, tattoed mamas that roam around in packs

   Rollingcow  I never dress up if I can help it. I grew up on a farm, we were extremely poor and I had good jeans and work jeans, I wore jeans to school so did my brothers and just about everyone else at our high school. Now that I'm an adult and can afford 'fancy' clothes I just can't bring myself to wear them since they're all so danged ugly. I wear jeans to Mass-do I disrespect God? Hell no, I see no reason why I have to dress for other people, if they don't like what I'm wearing they don't have to look. I figure God knows me for who and what I am, He knows my heart and my mind I've never thought clothes really mattered to Him.

   Surfhut  In life, there are so many differences depending on where we live and what we do. I work for a hydraulics mfg. company. We wear jeans and t-shirts. It gets dirty around there! But I'm in the office and always have my nails & hair done. Mrs. Cow doesn't disrespect God because she wears jeans to church! I'll bet she's not the only woman who dresses casually for Mass. God knows her heart and is glad she's there.

I must admit that when I went to my son's college graduation, it was a little shocking how sloppily many parents dressed. Given what we've been through, and the "big deal" school, it was a banner day for both of us. I wore a suit and heels. My son wore dress clothes under his cap and gown. NO WAY were we going to look back at pictures of this important day and look like scruffians who didn't appreciate what happened that day. But that's just us!

   Balogreene  I'm really torn on this, tho I think I wouldn't wear jeans to a graduation, maybe "business casual", but not jeans. Since the 70s I've worn jeans and a nice top to church. Tho as a fat old woman, I wear trousers, cause I feel sloppy in jeans. I wear jeans, and nice tops to work. It's funny, I have stained tshirts for gardening and pajamas, ok tshirts with writing on them for shopping, and nice tshirts, with embroidery or piping, for work. I have worked places I have to dress for work, in the '70s it was skirted suits, in the '80s it was pant suits, in the 90s, in NY it was business casual, as I'm an illustrator, not a "professional". Whe I moved to the DC area, it was business nice, with Friday business casual. Then I got this job in a lab, we wear jeans, unless a General is coming, then we have to dress.

   RoseOfTexas  As far as church attire, I think casual is fine as long as it is modest. One of my most memorable worship experiences was at a Rich Mullins concert at a church & he was barefoot.

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Main Page The Lobby  Why are so many so-called Conservatives so intolerant of us who believe in the Ten Commandments? What is the difference between Christians and athiests nowadays? Not much according to surveys. I've committed more than my share of sin but I finally saw the light and became born again and I try to live by God's rules. Even though I was always a nominal Christian, I did my own thing and this, that and the other. I bring up this rant because of a thread I commented on today. Do morals no longer apply to everyday life?

   MsCharlotteVale posted on Main Page The Lobby  In '08 I commented on something that bothered me:

4 years of Bush
8 years of Clinton
8 years of Bush and if Hill had won,
8 years of Clinton and then another Bush would have stepped up to the plate and then it would be Chelsea's turn at bat.

Our founding fathers didn't intend for us to be a monarchy. There are more than 2-3 families in America who can be president. Wake up! I have no doubt that the Bushes are a nice family but Wake Up!
