Today, DH and I went to see the film "Obama's America 2016".

It is a documentary, and extremely well done.

None of us know a whole lot about Obama, and after seeing this film, I am much more informed.

I really urge ALL Americans to see this film!! It will definitely open your eyes!!! emoticon

    My first question is what is the director's agenda.

    I read a review that at the end cautioned people before seeing the movie to check more on the producer, who he is, and what is his agenda. The entire review was not pro or con, just said that movies like this are not always one way, that there can be reasons for being released when they are by who makes and releases them and to try to think for yourself rather than accept everything for what it is. Most of life is not so cut and dried, but rather shades of gray. I thought the review very well written and by not taking one side or another made it was quite convincing. I think he was trying to say that some of it is true and some of it is not. Just my thoughts on what I've read. I intend to make up my own mind.

Dirt Obviously Transfers!!!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I have been very busy working in the garden.

Most days I have been putting in at least 4 hours at a stretch.

I have pulled weeds, planted winter crops, made new beds, pruned, clipped, gathered, raked, shoveled, hoed.

I have built up a huge burn pile of waste, so when the rain comes, I can burn it all down.

I have gathered a bountiful harvest, and I have questioned myself as to what the hell was I thinking in planting so many carrots, beets, peas, tomatoes, squashes, beans and lettuces.

My garden overfloweth.

My neighbors are not talking to me, nor are they answering the door when I show up with more produce to off load on them. I can hear them snickering behind the door, and I KNOW they are home!! They aren't fooling me one little bit!

Don't they know how healthy they can get if they eat my over flow????

Maybe it's that last wheelbarrow full I left on their doorstep.

But hey! Waste not, want not, right??


Today I am changing my routine. I am staying home and cleaning house.

Yes, you heard me correctly. I am going to stay out of the garden today.

After watching the TV coverage of the Convention last night, I took a look at my house.


Every where I look there is clutter. And dust. And DIRT.

All those rows and rows of hoeing the dirt, raking it nice and smooth! I seemed to have a lot less dirt after getting all the weeds out and making it all pretty.

Now I know where the dirt transferred itself. It's in my house, getting ready to sprout brand new weeds, I'm sure.

So today is the day I bring in the rake and shovel and clean my house.

I can't wait. I'm so excited at the prospect that I could just pee myself.

    I take my excess produce to the local food bank. They love to have fresh food to give to their clients, even the zucchinis that look more like baseball bats.

Too bad we live at opposite ends of the state. I'd take your produce in a heartbeat. This year I only got beans and squash. The snails and rabbits got everything else.

    This blog is very humorous and uplifting. I don't know where you are, but you can leave your neighbors alone and send the vegetables to a homeless shelter or food pantry. My daughter has been donating fresh tomatoes and the people really appreciate the fresh food.

  Forgot to add, wish you were my neighbour as I would LOVE all the free fresh produce....your neighbours don't know what they are missing. Take it to the Mission Kitchen for them to use for the homeless etc.

  I am always amazed at how many calories one can burn working in the garden....I spent 4 days pulling out cedar tree stumps and enjoyed every minute

Coil of Rage........A must Read...

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Well, you can figure that I wouldn't have read anything Obama wrote, so it is an eye opener, though NOT a big surprise, to see his inner thoughts written down. People who DID vote for him should read this, and maybe his books, to see where he's REALLY going. His dealings with the Mid-east show that he is carrying out those guidelines. Wake up, America!

How do you like him now,America?

Coil of Rage ~

When you've read to the end, come back and read this first paragraph again.

A Coil of Rage

The character of any man is defined by how he treats his mother as the years pass... need I say more about this person below other than there is no character, no integrity but there is a ton of attitude and arrogance that defines his shallow past and hollow future... I rest my case.

I bought and read Obama's book, Audacity of Hope. It was difficult to read, considering his attitude toward us and everything American. Let me add a phrase he used to describe his attitude toward whites. He harbors a "COIL OF RAGE". His words not mine.


Everyone of voting age should read these two books by him: Don't buy them, just get them from the library.

From Dreams From My Father:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

From Dreams From My Father:

"I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

From Dreams From My Father:

"There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."

From Dreams From My Father:

"It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to
show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

From Dreams From My Father:

"I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes ofMartin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

And FINALLY...........and most scary:

From Audacity of Hope:

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

If you have never forwarded an e-mail, now is the time to do so!!! We have someone with this mentality running our GREAT nation!

Keep your eye on him and don't blink.

I don't care whether you are a Democrat, a Republican, a > Conservative or a liberal, be aware of the attitude and character of this sitting President.

    I never bothered to read much about him because I did not like his position vis a vis the military but the quotes you have brought to our attention are scary.

Take In Some End of Summer Outdoor Fun!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Today my friends and I are traveling down to Tacoma for the Pacific West Quilt Show. I am sure we will find something we MUST have, although we probably already have a dozen just like it. But those quilt shows are so much fun, and they have such neat vendors! Who can (or should) resist???

We are now heading toward the end of summer.

Let's all see what bazaars, fairs, shows, and events we can pack in before the leaves begin to change and the temperatures drop!

Let's all see how much fun we can pack into our lives this weekend. After all, it IS life on life's terms, right?

Scary Obituary

Friday, August 24, 2012

This has been around for a long time,

The 912 project has been educating citizens about this and the Constitution for the past three years.

I believe this is all happening right before our eyes.

That's why, when I talk about adding 2 plus 2 and getting 4, balancing a checkbook and reading legislation before it's voted on is now considered radical, extreme and labeled as a neo-con.

Actually, it really is radical and extreme, because the new norm is to borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend and don't be concerned for the record debt and deficits.

In fact, we as a nation are about to receive QE 3, that's Quantitative Easing III, The printing of more money, that will add to inflation and more debt.

We need more people to become productive, self reliant, more workers, more tax payers, not more or higher taxes.

I am for good government that takes responsibility for it's citizens.

Read up on 45 Goals of Communism, Saul Alinskys, Rules for Radicals and the Cloward-Piven Project, these have contributed in the past 50 yrs, that make up the new normal.

Worth reading:

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government.

A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
>From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in
St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens
of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low
income tenements and living off various forms of government

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
"complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million
criminal invaders called illegal's - and they vote - then we can say
goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how
much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our

This is truly scary
