  We have a new Wall, it is CRAFTS, Thank you [BirdsNest] for your suggestion.



   Fireball27  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!

   Bettijo  “Today’s decision jeopardizes the health of women that are employed by these companies,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.

How in the world can not having "insurance covered" birth control possibly "jeopardize the health of women"? You would still have to have a doctor's prescription for some drugs; then you would go to the drug store and purchase them just like you do now.

"Birth control pills can come at very different prices. Sometimes they’re actually more expensive if you have insurance!" http://clearhealthcosts.com/blog/2013/04/q-how-much-do-birth

   Bettijo  OMG, I just read Hobby Lobby co

"Hobby Lobby offers coverage for 16 different types of contraception for its employees." Apparently there are only two types they are unwilling to cover, the morning after pill and two kinds of IUDs.

   MeiDei  I remember a time when doctors would only prescribe contraceptives if you were in your late 30's/early 40's and you were through having children. The idea being that you would only take them for 15 years - which at that time was considered a safe period of use. They would also prescribe, for short term only - less than a year, to correct a medical condition.

Today privacy & modesty are a thing of that past. With so much publicity & in your face sexual encounters it's difficult to keep from being a Peeping Tom by default. It's also difficult to refrain from thinking - thank God those women are not reproducing.

Maybe I'm wrong but I'm really not interested in what Sandra Fluck thinks or does, or any celebrity, or my next door neighbor when it comes to something that should be their business only. OK, that's my rant.

   Balogreene  Today, listening to Mary Katherine Ham (Hotair.com ), and Dan Bongino on WMAL.com (actually, since I live in the DC area, I listen mostly on the radio ), Mary Katherine said there is a huge difference between a refusal to pay, and a ban on an item. Just because they don't want to pay for 4 of the 20 drugs, does not mean you cannot go out and by them yourself.

   Bettijo  I remember reading a long time ago, that the GOP could not challenge the Demos re voter fraud. I went looking for the article and found this.

The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.
Yes. You read it correctly.
In fact, legally the GOP cannot ensure voting integrity, nor can it prevent vote fraud.
Here’s the astounding reason, which is kept from the American people.

   StormCnter  No, it's not true that the GOP cannot challenge voter fraud. They are limited in how it can be done, but they are not prevented.

I've been reading about this for years. Maybe this analysis from The Blaze would be helpful information.

   MeiDei  As RR said, "Trust but verify" - this is a sticky subject because we have strong suspicions that voter fraud exists i.e., precinct counts well over residency, software techs admitting to default counts, boxes of ballots mysteriously showing up favoring one decidedly, etc. I read all the above links including those within the links. While I'm disappointed in my vote being cancelled by the opposition I can accept it; what is infuriating is having my vote meaningless by fraud.

Wasn't it Stalin who said, "it's not who votes that count, but who counts the votes" - & isn't this why Soros spent much on the election of State Secretaries?

   Allsogreat  Vet is Threatened with Losing His Home After He Humbly Puts a Symbol of Patriotism in a Flower Pot

   Gerty  Please excuse me as I give this matter another look, Allsogreat.
1. We should be very careful to read every word of a contract we sign---especially if it has to do with our day to day living situation. This courageous Vet is living under a set of rules to which he agreed. We cannot just pass over this aspect.
2. It seems to me that the situation could be resolved by simply taking the flag out of the flower pot and re-positioning it elsewhere. (I'm not so sure that a flower pot gives the flag the honor it deserves. )
3. Disagreements of this kind are usually more an indication of other, perhaps more serious differences between individuals and homeowner's associations. (Like people getting divorced because one of the marriage can't stand the way the other squeezes the toothpaste tube from the center! )

   MeiDei  I once lived in a community with covenants. It was the builder who had the sole voice of these covenants not a Home Owners Association. The builder was distant, impartial & without personal associations within the community. A HO's assoc. can exceed it's bounds based on petty differences & perceived power; see what happened to Ann Barnhardt. I think this gentlemen should be able to fly his flag, but planting one should be reserved to cemetary plots, not flower pots. It may be time to review the restrictions, have a clause regarding proper display of flags according to tradition and having a vote on it.

   MeiDei  This from an email today. While not believing much of what 0 says this escaped me; thank God for the nit-pickers out there in cyberspace:

"Subject: Historically illiterate president

You may recall that a few weeks ago, our illustrious president spoke of past presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, much like his swap he said convincingly. CNSNews.com carried this quote, “This is what happens at the end of wars,” President Barack Obama said Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists. "That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back. And that’s the right thing to do.”

While that sounds good, let's check our historical facts- the Revolutionary War ended in 1783 and Washington did not become president until 1789. Lincoln was assassinated in mid April, 1865 and the war didn't end until May, the month following. As for FDR, he died of a stroke before the end of WWII. So there you have it, none of these presidents were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any prisoner swaps.

So much for our historically illiterate president. You would think that someone on his staff would keep him from making these foolish blunders, but speaking half truths and telling whole lies has become his pattern of speech when it comes to the American public".

   Mildred  As far as I can tell, the only people who are saying Obama is 'smart' are those being paid to do so. He blunders and stumbles so often that you would need several books to publish all of them.

   Gerty  Obama does not have to be historically correct. His minions and followers would not know the difference and then there are those who don't give a hoot!

But he does sound like he knows what he's talking about. And for democrats, that's what matters.
June 26 at 18:49 EST .


   Belwhatter  'At the end of wars' is a telling phrase. In the past wars were concluded by a surrender signed by the leaders. Since guerilla warfare became the in thing, fighting faceless people not a sovereign nation, means a war cannot be concluded, therefore prisoners are not exchanged, but held for future ransom of killed. There was a strange degree of honor in warfare in those days that no longer exists.

   StormCnter  This is what I understand: I have heard several legislators, notably Trey Gowdy, talk about the difficulty of suing the President because the courts won't give members of congress legal standing as having been individually injured. However, the basis for the Boehner suit is different and, according to Jonathan Turley, it could work. The suit will address Obama's usurpation of powers that constitutionally belong to the House. The claim will be that each member individually and the House ,collectively, has been legally injured.

No, the legal action won't get us a fast result. It will take years, but I'm all for it. I say, good for the House GOP.

Have you exhausted the problem with the L.dot staff and, in particular, Mr. Luis? I have always found them very helpful and eager to rectify any situation--not only for me but for others.

You are not only a prolific poster but I, for one, will sorely miss your interesting and informative comments.

Please reconsider with the help of the Connection Staff.
