   StormCnter  Gram, I'm in north Texas where it's been hovering around 100 for way too long. This morning, I had to kick the heat on for 30 minutes to offset the 55 degree temperature. I'm with you. I'm loving it.

   Fireball27  Anyone see the photo of a man holding the "fetus" in one hand? It was on Facebook yesterday. The words said "This is what we all looked like at 12 weeks in the womb. Legal to kill in all 50 states. Anyone think its not a person? Pass this along. It might literally save a life." I'm not that up on how Facebook works, so I couldn't get a copy of the picture. I would love to make a t-shirt of it. Maybe someone on here can find the picture and post it. It truly shows what most of us have been trying to get across to the "pro-choicers". The baby has all of its parts, and is so cute. No one could look at it and say its unviable tissue.

   Fireball27  Yes the one is what I saw. Notice how they say it isn't real. I didn't think is was real, I thought it was a doll the whole time. It was supposed to be a representation of a 12 week "fetus". So its a doll. Even if it is close to what a real baby looks like at 12 weeks, you can't look at it and say it isn't a baby. Which I think was the point. The one, brings home the point real well. They want to rip apart a BABY!!!

I would like to see a side by side picture of 2 babies at the same gestation age, say 6 months, and a caption about one going into the NCIU because the parents want her, and the other headed to the abortion provider. Two babies, both able to be a healthy child, but because of "Choice" only one gets to live. Not only is the fact one will die as a "choice", it is how it will die that is the point.

   MeiDei  Don't you think that PP et al know this & that is why they are so vehement about NOT showing sonograms or giving anesthesia to the unborn when the baby can feel pain before they remove it? My Vet puts my animals to sleep before giving the shot that stops the heart, it's the humane thing to do and sad enough. How callous of PP, or others, not to.

   Tulsa  I posted just today on Computers and tech board how to stop ads and pop ups. ...sorry. I'm just tied of verbal conflict and the headlines. Took a badly needed break.

Install AdBlock Plus. Free download. Blocks ads, pop ups, tracking, etc. After (free ) download which only takes seconds check the boxes for no tracking, etc. I do not know why I waited so long. Most ads are gone. Amazing product. The icon is shaped like a stop sign with the letters ABP inside and appears on the tool bar line. Make certain you click the correct website. Don't be fooled by copies. I downloaded it for Firefox and for IE. No more ads, pop ups.

Another tip is to surf with your sound off. I don't need no steenking sound effects. It's easy peasy to turn the sound on when needed.

I know nothing about Ipads or pods or macs.

Also NoMoRobo for your phone is a must have. Att (u-verse ) supports it as do others. One ring and the program stops the call. Go to NoMoRobo website and see if your carrier supports it and download it. Free download also. Feds awarded $25,000 to two different individuals who designed programs to stop telemarketers.

Safetydude. We're in God's hands. He is in charge. 'All things work for good for those who love the Lord.' All things. Evil can not work without God's permission. It's in the Book. Give Him the glory. Surrender to His will and rest.

Gram77. South Carolina is our home. I read the SC US Sen. and Reps voted against Fed help for the victims of Hurricane Sandy(NJ ). I do not know if that is true. I don't remember Fed aid for all the hurricanes that have hit South Carolina, but then I wasn't paying attention then.

I do know bill and hill closed the Naval base in Charleston after SC voted against him for potus. That was devastating to the State.

   Safetydude  Is there ANYBODY left out there that doesn't realize that our country, and the world, is in deep Kimchi.

When challenged by “60 Minutes” interviewer Steve Kroft about ceding leadership in the Middle East to Putin, Obama argued that leadership on climate change was more important than leadership to combat terrorism.

“My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris,” Obama said. “My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world community to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.”

That's a quote from the "60 Minutes" transcript, via GOOGLE.

Obama is also quite proud of his milestones on climate change, particularly after reaching a “historic” deal with China in 2014.

This is a man that lives in his own head, not the real world!

I don't watch ABC, CBS, NBC, NBC, CNN, et al so this is secondhand from FOX
and a GOOGLE search.

   StormCnter  It's hard for me to decide whether Obama is still trying to convince us of his very specialness no matter what we hear and read, or, is the man truly delusional. I'm beginning to lean toward delusional.

   Gram77  Question: As you all know I am not terribly smart when it comes to politics, but I have a burning question which some how is surely a connection to politics. Why is S. Carolina on their own with this terrible flooding disaster? Doesn't this state qualify (or whatever the proper term is ) for help from FIMA? Are they going to have to paddle their way out of this mess all by themselves? If this is a political problem, then I am even more angry at this country than before.

   StormCnter  It's an excellent question. Texas, also heavily Republican, has soldiered through several disasters without the Feds. During the terrible fires of a few years ago when a lot of Central Texas was afire, the Feds refused to loan us their tankers with fire retardant which were based just a few miles from our state line.

   FlatCityGirl  With the Mulatto Muslim in the Spite House, it stands to reason that any state that is heavily Republican will be punished if a natural disaster hits.

The Mulatto has been punishing Texas since the day he took the first oath of office. Not only has he refused to help in the face of natural disaster, he's sicced the EPA on us [as well as other federal agencies] and brought lawsuit after lawsuit against Texas.

I make the reference to "Spite House" for a reason. A good reason. There has never been a more thin skinned, petulant or petty Head of State in our history than the Mulatto Muslim who resides in the People's House. There isn't a fire in Hades hot enough for him. I hope my grandchildren live long enough to see his grave turned into a public toilet. I'm going to leave instructions in my will for them to make a contribution in my memory.

Rant Over!

   Namma  because Obama knows that Republican governors will not hug him like Christie did. so he wont send federal aid.
oh and did you know that even after that big smoochie hug fro Christie, parts of N.J. are still waiting for aid.

   FlatCityGirl  Actually, if I were a private business or a public agency, school, etc., I wouldn't want either one of those signs posted.

It's always better to make a possible bad actor wonder.

I think that's one reason why, out here where I live in Gun Country, were have such fewer car jacking, rape, muggings, push-in robberies, etc., compared to places like Chicago, Newark, Detroit, et al.

Certainly not everyone out here is armed, but those of us who are don't walk down the street or put a sign in the front yard advertising it, therefore a possible mugger or push-in robber just never knows when he's going to come up against a .357 or 12 gauge.

by John Cleese - British writer, actor and tall person

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be alright, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

A final thought - “ Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC”.
