   John C posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just tried to leave a message for McConnell via his KY office and was told that they can only take in-state messages and for me to have a good day.

   Grahamcracker  That practice really frosts me. If that is the philosophy of our elected elites, then their salaries should be the responsibility of their constituents. Not only do all of us pay all of their salaries, their decisions affect all of us.

   StormCnter  Many officeholders have that same rule. It's not unique to McConnell. Try a snail mail letter. Most of them pay more attention to a physical letter than to an email or phone message.

   Bettijo  Several years ago I was trying to contact somebody in Congress (forget who ) and had to provide an in-state or in-district ZIP code. A little research turned up an acceptable ZIP code and I was able to get through. But, like you, my tax dollars pay his salary and he should have someone available to take messages/concerns from any/all of us.

   RedWhiteBlue  If their decisions only effected THEIR little state then OK (LOL ), but when their decisions, voting, etc effects the whole country and it's good citizens then they should and must be able to take responses from the all of us! There's a jerk Kildee in Michigan that is about to vote for the Iran deal and was going to read him the riot act I could not email him OR call his office and do the same. His nasty vote on this horrid mistake is going effect ALL of us not just Michigan!!!! What a loony state and all the loony voters. After all it's supposed to be a government of, for and by the people and if these jerks don't know what WE want then they are not doing the job they were sent to D.C. to do! Well, they're not doing a good job anyway....99% should be canned and sent packing to find a job on the street!

   John C posted on Main Page The Lobby  Charlie Rose interviewed David Plouffe, now an exec with Uber this morning.
Lo and behold he is predicting a big influx of population into the cities in the next 10 years. Can you say Agenda 21, new people Data banks targeting the suburbs, continued illegals immigration, all giving a boost to Uber and the democrats who will then control every state.

So, I would like to ask people on this site to contribute financially, every little bit helps, so we don't have so many popups! Please help support this sight!

   Bettijo  I am not surprised. I rarely log on anymore when this used to be my first site to visit each morning. We have lost so many of our "old timers." Some, I have been told, were barred from Lucianne.Com. I miss those folks and their thought-provoking comments. I also miss the man (name escapes me ) who used to post the gorgeous flower pictures. Sorry, John, but Lucianne just isn't "wonderful" any more. And, I am sick of birthday cakes! If anyone finds a site to replace this one, please let us know as I miss the comradery we used to share.

   MeiDei  I am sorry you feel that way Bettijo as I've always enjoyed your posts; sorry too that the cakes annoy you - but seem to be appreciated by others. No hard feelings here.

I miss some "old timers" too: Mr & Mrs Cow, YNaught, Yotty Here, RakeKing, Wrightwringer, NuGoddess to name just a few. But I've noticed others have joined in, probably people who have been readers more than posters in the past. For years (since the Monica mess ) I didn't post on The Connection - not wanting to intrude on what seemed to be private or long term friendships. I welcome the posts from those who are new to the walls just as much as I regret missing the others & wonder if they're having computer problems (haven't we all at one time ) or facing serious medical problems (again, haven't we all ) or have passed from life (CaptTet, theMotherCO ). An illness kept me home & Rake's movie quizzes put aside my lurking & with the encouragement & acceptance by those who frequented that Wall - well, here I am - annoying you with the Cakes (chuckle! ) after having learned from others here how to find them, and get them in & out of my computer. Saw your suggestion for a separate wall for them & surprise - I & 17 others agree with you! The hope is that they're never looked upon as a measure of popularity, the idea of just posting one cake at the beginning of each month for all who share a birthday that month has been a serious consideration - perhaps posting them on the under-used Events Wall instead -what do you (or anyone else reading here ) think?

Finally, putting thoughts to sentences & posting leaves some of us vulnerable to misunderstanding by others. That's a sad consequence of not being able to hear the mirth, or recognize the naughty-but-nice tease, the compassion for those in distress or the sincerity of a prayer of faith. When opinions differ, and challenged - feelings can get hurt - arguments develop; sad that some will ban themselves rather than by Staff. I hope you will reconsider leaving The Connection, but if not - know that I wish you well as I'm sure others do also.

   StormCnter  Thank you, John and Spahrkl, for reminding us that is free to us, but not free to our hostess. There is staff and bandwidth to take care of. We all should donate from time to time if it is possible.

Here is a pictures of politicians raising the Flag for Gay week in Boston, and a report that a Beth Israel Hospital doctor
was fired for telling the truth of gay behavior.

   Gerty  A very informative link, Mr.John. We have gone from Gay pride day to Gay week in Boston.

I have no wish to bash gays. Some of my best friends are.... You know the drill.

However, homosexuality IS a questionable life style with all kinds of health implications. Some of its representatives equate love with sex. Not so; they are not the same thing. No more than: If you love me, you will have sex with me. = If you have sex with me, you love me.

   MeiDei  Thanks for posting John. I scrolled down and read the survey "to-do". Most intrusive; having taken one similar in HS many years ago - most of us had to go to the dictionary to find out what the questions referred to. It was a time of uncomfortable loss of innocence - and Marxist conditioning.

   Belwhatter  The Great Britain we once knew is overrun with unassimilared muslims who have set up unchallenged their own community governance, so it would not be difficult for the Flotus to locate a muslim school. I cringe at her audacity as she traipses around the world on our dime, dragging the surly girls in her wake.

   John C posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just unbelievable- From the massresistance website POSTED: May 5, 2015

Across Massachusetts – and across America – thousands of schoolchildren are given sexually graphic, psychologically intrusive surveys by the public schools without parents’ knowledge.

These surveys ask youth to reveal their criminal activity, personal family matters (guns, drug use ), and other intimate issues.

Every two years the Mass. DOE creates a new statewide version of the CDC national Youth Risk Behavior Survey and makes it available to each school district. The school districts can further modify the surveys if they wish and are given wide discretion as to how they notify parents, whether they allow the parents to see the surveys, how the surveys are administered to the students, etc. When questioned the department didn't have time to answer.

   Safetydude  From Nova Scotia(the Alabama of Canada )to all of Canada by one of my favorite performers who happens to be Canadian.
Sometimes I would see Gordon in a cafe in Yorkville, (Toronto )when I lived around the corner from Eastern Sounds Studios, when he was recording. No, I was not a draft dodger and he never recognized me. Bummer.

There are better video's but I like this one because that's how he looked in the early 70's.

Excess ammunition? We were begging for excess ammunition for training purposes. And I recall on several occasions when I was an Army exchange officer with the II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune working out some issues on ammunition transfer and training between XVIIIth Airborne Corps, Ft. Bragg. So what is this baloney?
