In five days, the midterms elections of 2014 will be OVER (with perhaps the exception of a runoff in Georgia and/or Louisiana). With any luck, we will know clearly on the night of November 4th how the checks and balances within our Constitution will be set up. Of course, we then have to hope that those in “leadership” do the correct thing!

So how do you see the 2014 Elections play out?

And then on November 5th, we start all over…… toward NOVEMBER 8th, 2016

Thomas Jefferson was one of the great visionaries of his time. This is his quote, his reflection, on how our Democracy could be crippled and cease to exist:

“The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work, and give to those who would not.”

I guess that speaks VOLUMES for itself!!

 

On Saturday, the Boston College Eagles will take to the football field, against the USC Trojans. But the story isn’t about who they are playing. The story is the “story” behinf the red bandanas that will adorn their uniforms, and that the fans in the stadium will wave. It is the story of Welles Remy Crowther, BC Class of 1999, American hero!

While at this hour we focus on the nearly three thousand lives lost in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania, let us also pause to remember the four brave Americans who were attacked and killed on this date two years ago when our consulate in Benghazi, Libya was attacked.

The newspapers, the live media, the blogs, can all write and say hours of print and video. But the simple fact is that at 8:46AM, we pause for a moment of silence to remember 9/11/01.

Let us always remember, Let us never forget !!

 

This “humor” was in my INBOX this morning:

1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.
2. If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.
3. If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.
4. If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy leaders in Egypt, you live in a country run by idiots.
5. If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you live in a country run by idiots.
6. If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.
7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.
8. If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of grade school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you live in a country run by idiots.
9. If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones, you live in a country run by idiots.
10. If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working, with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work, you live in a country run by idiots.
11. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.
