An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, “I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”. The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad.

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.

She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same rea she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down.

She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

The moral of the story?

If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable.

I saw this on FB and even if its not true, its still quite comical.

Bran's Celebration of Faith and Patriotism

Have you ever felt you needed a break from the heated political exchanges on social media, the destructive Antifa demonstration coverage, and the endless political coverage of partisanship coming out of Washington? With 90 percent negative news and a dwindling supply of puppy or kitty videos to bring a smile to your face, we crave something positive, fun, patriotic, and faith inspiring.

Enticed into scheduling a 4-day vacation in Bran, Missouri, my wife and I weren't sure what to expect. We traveled light and wondered whether the positive gossip we'd heard about the area was true.

There seemed to be an almost endless supply of shows and entertainment options, so we planned early. We had tickets to cover the gamut-a comedian, a Christian musical, a 50's music tribute, Irish tenors, a country western tribute, and Celtic women.

This certainly wasn't California! Bran has created its own culture that just draws you in. Every show took time to honor the military in the audience and thanked them for securing the freedoms we treasure. It's no wonder, Bran is one of the most popular military reunion destinations in America. Veterans are applauded, respected, and welcomed. You join in and see the support's impact on the veterans and those who love them.

The patriotism is evident with flags for sale, flags flying throughout the city, and flag patches on hats and T-shirts. When audiences were asked to join in singing "The Star Spangled Banner" or "America the Beautiful," they belted them out with gusto. It made you proud to be with crowds that valued being American. We were celebrating freedom over the 4th of July holiday in the best country in the world. Yes, people in Bran aren't afraid to say that, because they believe that it's true.

As we drove from the Springfield MO Airport to Bran, you couldn't miss the impact of faith on the people who live there. There are small churches, big churches, and darn right massive church campuses throughout the route. You read about the Bible Belt, but in Missouri you see its presence. You see people comfortable visibly praying before meals in McDonald's. Faith is celebrated. Doors are opened for you. People are quick to help.

There is a pervading attitude of fun that you can't help but notice. People are smiling. They're courteous. People are friendly and ready to laugh. Laughter and smiling are both contagious, and we caught it!

Our first show was at Yakov Smirnoff's theater. In the '80s, Yakov road the Cold War tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States to stardom as that "Russian comedian." Even today he weaves a steady stream of humor about the America he experienced as a poor Russian immigrant to an appreciative crowd. His payoff line-"What a country!"-worked over and over again as we laughed together about ourselves and our country.

He'd describe how careful you had to be as a comedian in Russia: "If you said, 'Take my wife, please,' when you got home, she was gone! In Russia, they also have free speech, but in America you get a bonus-you have freedom after you speak!"

But the recent calls for "democratic socialism" by many democratic candidates concerns him. Socialism was why he left the Soviet Union; it doesn't work. Yes, healthcare is free, but you get what you pay for. He might want to turn his tagline into a warning-"America! What a country...if you can keep it!" That was Ben Franklin's warning at the founding of our republic. It is a serious warning for us today!

Yakov pulled no punches in leveling his humor against socialism:

Two socialists are talking to one another. One said: "If you had two houses would you give me one?"

The other one replied, "Of course you're my fellow socialist, of course I give you one.

If you had two cars, would you give me one?"

His friend said, "Of course, why even ask. That's what we socialists are supposed to do. We share things."

The other asked, "OK, if you had two chickens, would you give me one?"

"No!"

"Why not?"

"Because I have two chickens!"

When it's not your property at risk, it's easy to celebrate socialism and sharing their property. But when it means sharing your possessions, no way! He continued: "We were told that Adam and Eve were socialists because they had nothing to wear, they had no roof over their heads, they had to share one apple between two people, and they were told they live in paradise."

Living in socialism is not paradise, but visiting Bran and the faith and patriotism it inspires comes pretty close. Give it a try, and you just may catch the spirit. I wish the same thing could be said about every city in America.

Rashida Tlaib: The Term ‘Illegal Immigrant’ is “Dehumanizing!”
Posted:Jul 14, 2019 9:49 am
Last Updated:Jul 15, 2019 7:06 pm

For quite some time, the Democrat Party has evidenced their proclivities towards accepting illegal immigration. First, it began with claiming individuals who unlawfully enter the country should be granted amnesty or a path to citizenship.

In 2019 alone, Democrats have considerably upped the ante, especially as their party regresses into radicalism. Many candidates running for office support providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants at the American taxpayers’ expense and decriminalizing unlawful entry into the states altogether.
Now, as unbelievable as this may seem, it gets even worse. There are Democrats serving in the United States Congress who don’t even want Americans to use the term “illegal immigrant.” According to House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, referring to someone as an illegal immigrant is “dehumanizing.” The congresswoman made this statement during a House Oversight Committee hearing, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

While speaking before the House Oversight Committee on Friday, Tlaib discussed issues pertaining to the Southern border and detention centers which are housing migrants who illegally entered into America. The congresswoman then went on to assert no individual is illegal; this is a common talking point used by progressives who support those who breach this nation’s immigration laws.

In Tlaib’s own words: “First, no one is illegal. term is derogatory now because it dehumanizes people. You can say any other forms of maybe ‘coming in without any regulations’ or so forth, but the use of ‘illegal’ is disrespectful and I ask my colleagues to try in so many ways to not dehumanize our immigrant neighbors who are trying to come in for safe haven.”

The Errors in Tlaib’s Logic

Yikes! Where to begin?

There are so many problematic aspects with Tlaib’s statements, namely the false claim “no one is illegal.” By definition, when someone sneaks across the Southern border or otherwise enters the United States without going through the lawful immigration process, is illegal. Migrants who do not follow the immigration laws are, in fact, illegal immigrants. This is not a tough concept to comprehend or come to terms with.

With the swift action being taken against illegal immigration, Tlaib’s antics are only the beginning. The enforcement of legal immigration is bound to bring out more twisted narratives and insanity from the left-wing.

RACIST: Democrats New War Cry

It seems the Democrats have a new war cry, labeling those who disagree with them as RACIST. In fact they even are now using it on fellow Democrats.

Kamala Harris ambushed former VP Joe Biden by accusing him of being a RACIST. Based solely on the fact he associated with segregationist Senators. Mr Biden has been apologizing profusely for working with coalitions to try to achieve solutions he thought right. Joe Biden had nothing to apologize for after causing an outcry for touting his working relationships with segregationist senators. Now along the way, “Uncle Joe” (just one of his many nicknames) has made any number of gaffes. them whatever you want, I believed his heart was always in the right place even when his mouth — or hands — indicated otherwise.

Then you have the new "Fab Four" led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, along with Ilhan Omar,Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley whose combined efforts are giving the House Democratic leadership heartburn. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dismissed them, their policy initiatives, and said that their clout is grossly overrepresented due to their social media activity. And now, AOC has struck back saying that Pelosi is singling out these women of color, which is a sign of gross disrespect. Ms Pelosi had reportedly chewed out progressives in a closed-door meeting. She noted that any misgivings should be brought to her, not aired out on Twitter.

Now while I don't agree with Mr Biden or Ms Pelosi on their policy or most of their solutions to issues, I would be hard pressed to label either of them RACIST.

Yesterdays Answer and a Whole Lot More

Yesterday I posted a group of positions and asked you people to tell what the origin was. I also said I would tell the answer today. Just to refresh your memory's here they are again.

increased military spending
-increased spending on hi-tech weaponry
-increased funding for space exploration
-pro-life
-pro-abstinence
-lower corporate tax
-decrease capital gains tax

The year is 1960 and these are planks from the Democrats Platform. Now in case any of you have forgotten, it was the same year the Democrats nominated a young energetic charismatic Senator from Massachusetts named John F Kennedy. The very same man who in his inaugural address uttered the quote: "Ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country." The same man whose idea of a tax cut was hit with the same old tired argument that its a tax cut for the wealthy, to which he replied " a rising tide lifts all boats", the same man who challenged us by his idea of putting a man on the moon within a decade, which was done in July of 1969.

This is a far cry that is coming from today's Democrat Party. It appears that the candidates have become so openminded that their brains have fallen out. They are for open borders, Medicare for all even those who are here illegally, wiping out college debts, it has become a contest of who can offer the most free stuff from all these people. It no wonder that people say I didn't leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.

Another thing from the congress in those days despite the campaign rhetoric, there was a lot more willingness to compromise with the other party to get things done. Sure as he)) don't work that way now does it?

"STUNNING - Trump calls Indicted SEX TRAFFICKING PERVERT "Terrific Guy" ...Women DISGUSTED with abuse"

This National Informer type headline is just another in the long list of fecal material being spread by our human manure spreader Leaf. It seems he forgot to include a few names headed by Bill Clinton. If those who have been on this story for years are to be believed -- and I put quite some stock in their words because they have dug extremely deep -- the fallout from this arrest could be huge. For example, Epstein is (or was) on friendly terms with Bill Clinton, British Prince Andrew, as well as others.

In the case of Clinton and Prince Andrew, it is well known the former president and the prince visited Epstein's "orgy island." This is where much of the abuse took place. For the moment, Clinton is not accused of abusing any of the present. however, one says Prince Andrew did have sex with her when she was a minor.

Other famous names in Epstein's "little black book" include Tony Blair, Naomi Campbell, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Bloomberg, and Richard Bran. According to one of the victims Epstein actually wired his mansion, where he often received his friends and other guests, with cameras. He then secretly recorded orgies they had with girls, after which he blackmailed them.

Trump's Patriotism Vs. The New Anti-Americanism
Posted:Jul 6, 2019 4:30 am
Last Updated:Jul 7, 2019 6:40 am
198 Views

Despite all the grousing and griping about his "politicizing" of the Fourth of July and "militarizing" America's birthday, President Donald Trump turned the tables on his antagonists, and pulled it off.

As master of ceremonies and keynote speaker at his "Salute to America" Independence Day event, Trump was a manifest success.

A president acting as president is almost always a more effective campaigner than a president acting as campaigner. And Trump, in what he said and did not say, played the president Thursday night.

The crowd on the Mall was huge and friendly, extending from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. The TV coverage was excellent. Friday, virtually every major newspaper had front-page stories and photos.

Earlier, former Vice President Joe Biden had snidely asked, "What, I wonder, will Donald Trump say this evening when he speaks to the nation at an event designed more to stroke his ego than celebrate American ideals?"

Thursday evening, Joe got his answer.

Despite predictions he would use "Salute to America" for a rally speech, the president shelved partisan politics to recite and celebrate the good things Americans of all colors and creeds are doing, and the great things Americans have done since 1776.

"Together, we are part of one of the greatest stories ever told -- the story of America," said Trump. "It is the epic tale of a great nation whose people have risked everything for what they know is right and what they know is true."

It was not a celebration of Trump but of America.

"What a great country!" declared the president. "(F)or Americans nothing is impossible." Ours is "the most exceptional nation in the history of the world."

The second half of Trump's speech was given over to tributes to the five branches of the armed forces -- Coast Guard, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army -- with each tribute ending in a display of air power.
The flexing of America's military muscle had evoked early howls of protest. But the flyovers of F-22s and F-35s, the B-2 stealth bomber and the Ospreys, and the culmination of the aerobatics with the Navy's Blue Angels, as the Marine Corps band played and all sang the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," was exhilarating, even moving.

It was positive, uplifting, patriotic. And one imagines that not only Trump's "deplorables" standing on the Mall loved it.

Still, one wonders: Where is all this negativity, this constant griping and grousing by the left, going to lead? Do these people think America will turn with hope to a party that reflexively recoils at patriotic displays?
Everywhere it seems the left is attacking America's history and her flawed heroes. Monday, the Ctesville City Council voted 4-1 to remove April 13, the birthday of Thomas Jeffer, as a paid holiday.

Why? Because our third president was a slave owner. The council's public comment period featured demonstrators accusing the author of America's Declaration of Independence with having been a racist and a ra#ist.

Last week, too, ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick urged his sponsor, Nike, to pull off the market its new Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July sneakers featuring Betsy's Ross's first American flag on the heel. Says Nike, Kaepernick told the company he finds the colonial flag offensive, as it was flown when slavery was still legal.

Just how far and fast the Democratic Party is moving left became clear last week with some startling findings of a new poll.
According to Gallup, while 76 percent of Republicans say they are "extremely proud" to be an American, only 22 percent of Democrats say the same, a sharp drop from last year. In 2013, the beginning of Obama's second term, 56% of Democrats said they were "extremely proud" to be Americans.

Another jolting note: While huge majorities of Americans -- 9 in 10 -- are extremely proud of the U.S. military and America's scientific achievements, more than two-thirds of all Americans now say that our political system no longer makes them proud.

This is especially true of Democrats. Only 25 percent, 1 in 4 Democrats, professes to be proud of our political system, our democracy.

A specter of anti-Americanism appears to be rising on the left.

Listening to the Democratic debates, and the depiction of the nation and its economy by the candidates, one would think we were living in the Paris of "Les Miserables" or the London of Charles Dickens.
Demography undeniably favors a millennial-dominant Democratic Party over the middle-aged and seniors party that is the GOP.

Yet how does a party, 3 of 4 of whose adherents profess no pride in its political system, persuade the nation to put it in charge of that system? How does a party, not one-fourth of whom are "extremely proud" to be an American, persuade a majority of Americans to entrust it with the leadership of their nation?
From liberals and progressives, we constantly hear griping, grousing and grievances. When do we hear the gratitude -- for America?

Scientists Recommend Reducing The Number Of Democratic Presidential Candidates To Help Fight Climate
Posted:Jul 4, 2019 2:35 pm
Last Updated:Jul 6, 2019 3:51 am

Scientists have issued a dire warning: the current of Democratic presidential candidates is simply unsustainable.

“No one ever thought this many people would run for president,” said climate scientist Dr. Raymond Hall, “and the planet just can’t take it. We’re talking each of them eating up resources vying for airtime, printing stickers with trite slogans, and flying from Iowa to New Hampshire. If they were actually all to be in one place for a debate, it would be an ecological disaster.”

Scientists recommend the current Democratic field be reduced to less than half the current or we could see an increase in hurricanes, droughts, kaiju, and “other climate change things.” As for what to do with the excess candidates, researcher Jeannie Perry said, “As always, I’d recommend firing them into space. Barring that, someone should just sit down with them and explain to them that no one is ever going to vote for them and hope that keeps them from running around consuming resources in a futile effort for presidential power.”

Scientists also have recommendations for the average citizen so they can help. First off, they say to never ever say anything even slightly encouraging to a politician, as they always take that as an impetus to run for president. They also say no circumstances should anyone give to a candidate, because that only fuels their destructive behavior. Added Dr. Hall, “It would literally be nicer to the planet to dump a barrel of nuclear waste into the ocean.”

One of the people I admire wrote the following as a tribute to the greatest nation on the planet.

Our nation’s story is nothing short of incredible!

It was a nation of settlers who fought for faith and freedom, declaring liberty over life. On July 4, 1776, they successfully rebelled against the king of England and his formidable army.

This attempt looked outrageously stupid, and the odds were against them.

Miraculously, these rebels and revolutionaries prevailed, and our fledgling country grew stronger. Since then, our Founding Fathers have embedded radical notions that have never existed before. A government with three branches that check and balance each other to maximize the freedom of its citizens. They have formed a nation that empowers the individual instead of the state.

Tragically, Americans seem oblivious to these tenets that make up our country.

Our nation has been far from perfect, but the genius of our basic constitutional framework is that we do have the power to change it. Hopefully, we continue to do so without neglecting our foundation.

Our founders have based our society on Judeo-Christian values that uphold the individual and the rule of law. So, when we celebrate the 4th of July, let's not just celebrate BBQ ribs, potato salad, and hot dogs…
