South Korea Will Still Serve Dog Meat At Olympics

South Korea is well known to favor dog meat in their meals. There are several really heart-breaking videos of them storing the dogs tightly in crates, then beating them to death before butchering them. Several humane groups in Western countries have pressured to stop the gruesome practice with little success. With the upcoming Olympics, the Officials have strongly encouraged restaurants to NOT serve dog meat to avoid offending countries who find this “food” repulsive. They’re meeting with resistance.

As a life-long avid dog lover, I find this practice abhorrent!!!!!!!

The Faces of the Democrat Party

The Democrats have lost their friggin’ minds. They have been unable to accept that Hillary lost in spite of all the illegal attempts to ensure her victory. Even though we suspected they tried to rig the election, we’re now beginning to learn the true extent of their corruption. Faces of Democrat Party

Their behavior during the State of the Union speech was atrocious! No doubt many Republicans will use those dreadful pics in their ads against their Democrat opponent. Many jokes were made on Twitter about Nancy Pelosi’s strange mouth movements. Every time there was an opportunity to applaud, Nancy looked around at fellow Dems to make sure all were following orders to not applaud. (Gotta keep ’em on the plantation) Some Dems actually booed when President Trump began his recognition of the two families who lost their daughters to the vicious MS-13 gang members. When President Trump touted the new lower black unemployment rate, the Congressional Black Caucus sat stone-faced. There is a telling video of Joe Manchin (D-WV) beginning to stand while starting to clap until he saw Chuck Schumer’s evil eye from the end of the row. Joe sat back down. At one point, the audience began the familiar USA – USA – USA chant. When that began Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) left his seat and hurriedly stomped out!

No one knows what the Democrats’ vision for America is. They’ve moved so far left that they seem to be adopting Bernie Sanders’ form of Socialism with Big Government. FREE STUFF for everyone – paid for by Papa Gov’t. An ideology where everyone becomes poor – like Venezuela! Other than that, it seems the Dems platform will be “Russia-Russia-Russia” and “we don’t like Trump“!

Dems have a low opinion of Americans. Hillary called Trump Supporters “DEPLORABLES“. Very rich Nancy says our $1000 bonuses are “CRUMBS“. Adam Schiff (D-CA) says we’re NOT SMART ENOUGH to understand a memo. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said his #1 priority is to illegal Dreamers! Guess he forgot that he took an oath to support/protect Americans.

Hillary’s loss stopped the Dem (Soros) plan for NWO and Globalism. Obama was put in place to begin the destruction of America. Hillary was to win to put the final 8 years in place. Not sure who put together this chart but this was their 16-year plan:

Americans voted for Trump to stop the destruction. That’s why MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN resonated with middle America, the Patriots, the hard workers, the Faithful … or as Obama called us “the clingers”.

To-Dos For January Hibernation

I dislike winter. I dislike being cold. Sure the snow is pretty – it’s just too bad it has to be cold to produce snow. Since I’ve retired I tend to hibernate during January. I only go out if I have to. I don’t mind driving in snow since I have a Jeep, but I don’t like being cold until the heater starts blowing warm air.

Christmas decorationsThis year I need to apologize to my neighbors. My Christmas lights are still up. I put them up in early December when we had some warmer days. I kind of overdid it since I had a new 8-ft stepladder. Except for a few days, we’ve had snow on the ground since Christmas. I’m not eager to put that ladder in 4-6″ of snow to undo the lights.

Christmas LightsThis Hawthorn tree is around 20ft tall – with THORNS! I got creative in putting the lights on it with my “new ladder”. I’m not looking forward to removing the lights when the temp is 15°. I did the same thing with a slightly smaller crab apple tree in the front. In the next week the weather is to be in the 30s so maybe some of the snow will melt so I can remove the lights.

On the plus side, I checked a few indoor projects off my to-do list. I cleaned out a bunch of files and took the sensitive papers to the UPS Store for shredding. I took some old non-working appliances to Sims Recycling where they paid me $2.38 for them. I did more planning for a major project that I’ve been working on. I’ll start it “soon” and that’ll keep me busy through February. Then there’s a couple storage closets that need to be sorted with outdated STUFF thrown out.

Hopefully by then it will be SPRING!

A Look Back at 2017

2017 was an interesting year. Mostly it was a good year, but there were a few ‘bad’ things. I’ll start with the bad first. Both my home and my Jeep are now 20 years old, so it’s been a year of rather costly maintenance on both. Water heater, large maple tree removed, fence repair, exterior trim painting, new fridge, some new faucets, etc. Typical homeowner expenses.

The good news is Murph is 13 yrs old and I’m grateful to still have him. He’s a little deaf and moves more slowly but he still has spirit and is unbelievably spoiled. Another granddaughter got married so my family increased by ONE. I still have great neighbors who sometimes help me with projects or scold me when they see me doing something they think I shouldn’t – like climbing ladders! And of course, I’m so thankful for my loving family!

I’m also glad we have a President who is working for the people and America. He’s eliminated many, many regulations that made it difficult and costly for businesses. He’s working to secure our borders and deporting illegals who commit crimes. ISIS has almost been decimated. He’s installed dozens of Constitutional Judges to rule based on law, not progressive activism. Starting in 2018 we’ll get tax cuts for Americans and Corporations which will infuse money into the economy to grow it. Anyone with a 401K or pension fund benefitted from the skyrocketing stock market. Best of all is a direction to consider America First rather than globalism and the New World Order concept. Now if Obama and Hillary would just go away, life would be good.

I’m excited about 2018 and what new exciting things it will bring.

The National Anthem explained …

Currently the NFL is disrespecting the American Flag and the National Anthem. Someone posted this YouTube video on Twitter with a suggestion that the football players should be reminded why we revere the Flag and memorialize all the Americans who have died to protect the Freedoms we enjoy – unlike any other country.

Those of us who are older studied American History in high school. I’m not sure they’re teaching it anymore. This vid is a good refresher course for us and a good lesson for younger people. It reminds us why we stand for the National Anthem and put our right hand over our heart.

One quote in the video is from George Washington. I think it is appropriate given what the overpaid football players are doing.

“The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the World is he will die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees.”

Most Patriots will get misty eyes as they watch the video. It makes us proud of this GREAT COUNTRY. If you’re not affected by the vid perhaps you might find another country more to your liking. As we use to say Love It or Leave It!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

#LivePD is must watch TV

LivePD TV showWeekend TV is pretty bleak but I now have a new fun show to watch on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s on A&E and is “Live PD“. I’m sure I’m late to party in finding this show. Just in case you haven’t watched it, Dan Abrams and others follow law enforcement officers in several cities/states. Greenville, SC and Phoenix seem to have the weirdest people. What makes this a fun show to watch are the tweets using #LivePD. Some of the comments are hilarious as they comment on people’s clothes or the lack thereof. Flex, one of the K9s, is a superstar of the show. He loves to bite the bad guys and barks continuously when he’s held back. Bad guys are more afraid of Flex than they are of the cops.

It’s a good show to highlight the terrible, disgusting people and things that LEOs have to put up with. So many perps actually fight with the officers for no reason. Often it takes several officers to hold them down to put the cuffs on. Another really disgusting things is when the officers do a pat-down for weapons and drugs. Most druggies hide their stash in or near their genitals. One guy even had a syringe in his rectum, which the LEO had to remove. Some of the women are just as vicious as the men. People that claim “police brutality” are LYING! It’s the perp that starts it. If they didn’t resist, they wouldn’t be manhandled!

The other surprise to me, is the number of folks who have some sort of drug in their cars. The officers may stop them for a broken tail light then find a bunch of drugs or an outstanding warrant or they’re driving on a suspended license. That’s unnerving knowing I’m might be sharing the road with them.

If you want a fun time at 9:00pm on Friday and Saturday nights, I recommend watching the show. People tweet that they watch it with the whole family to have a good laugh at people’s stupidity. Click here to read more about this TV phenom.
