Last month, we got with the program and got SKYPE. Enjoyable to talk to one son and our two grandkids who moved from Missouri to Denver, Colorado. And this morning? Big freaking surprise for me on father’s day. Our son in Texas, who is the world’s worst when it comes to calling dad, actually called. I said, if you have skype, get on it now. And bam! We got to not only talk with our son and our three grandkids (yes, his wife also, can’t leave her out!), but got to see them. Except for pictures, the two youngest we have never seen until this morning. It was a great time for us to talk to each of the grandkids (youngest not yet 2 years old). And to have them talk and see us. Blast with the youngest, who had to get up close and personal with the camera, all the better to see us with. LOL… Anyways, now we got another contact on Skype that will be used quite often.
Are you on Skype? Why not?

U.S. Census: Father’s Day – June 17, 2012 “The idea of Father’s Day was conceived slightly more than a century ago by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., while she listened to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who was left to raise his six children on a farm. A day in June was chosen for the first Father’s Day celebration June 17, 1910, proclaimed by Spokane’s mayor because it was the month of Smart’s birth. The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Father’s Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent.”
In 2011 there were an estimated 70.1 million fathers across the United States – Provided by U.S. Census Bureau
BIG NEWS OF THE DAY? A RACIST PIG HAS FINALLY DIED! Probably on drugs or alcohol, maybe both! But I say good riddance to our planet! May quite a few other racists on the left leave also.
Rodney King, whose beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was caught on camera and sparked riots after the acquittal of the four officers involved, was found dead in his swimming pool Sunday, authorities and his fiancee said. He was 47.
Police in Rialto, California, received a 911 call from King’s fiancee, Cynthia Kelly, about 5:25 a.m., said Capt. Randy DeAnda. Responding officers found King at the bottom of the pool, removed him and attempted to revive him. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital, DeAnda said.
There were no preliminary signs of foul play, he said, and no obvious injuries on King’s body. Police are conducting a drowning investigation, DeAnda said, and King’s body would be autopsied.
“His fiancee heard him in the rear yard,” he said, and found King in the pool when she went outside.
Kelly was a juror in King’s lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles in 1994.
Trying to convince everyone that obama is not a law breaking butthole!
Senior White House adviser David Plouffe insisted Sunday that President Obama’s decision to defer deportation of certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as children was “fully within” the president’s authority and not made with the 2012 election in mind.
This is a great graphic of how the liberal media can spin something! Like they did with the above guy who died finally and what they have done and are doing with George Zimmerman!
In New Jersey’s annual budget battles, State Senator Loretta Weinberg is Sisyphus, eternally pushing the public financing of Planned Parenthood’s charnel houses. Yes, once again she’s sponsoring a supplemental appropriations bill which would send taxpayer dollars to the merchants of death under the guise of “women’s health.”
Chris Christie will, of course, veto it. Just like he’s done every time before.
But this year thanks to the fine feminists at Susan G. Komen there’s a ray of sunshine headed Loretta’s way. Yup, the folks who pretend to save women’s lives from breast cancer have stepped up with a huge donation to the murderers of countless baby girls.
The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today.
Waving a planted press commentary, Obama recently claimed on the campaign stump, “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years.”
Peggy Noonan aptly summarized in last weekend’s Wall Street Journal the take away by the still holding majority of Americans living in the real world:
“There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration. It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents. This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s Presidency. People sneered: The President was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture! But you know, why would he go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”
What this shows most importantly is that the recognition is starting to break through to the general public regarding the President’s rhetorical strategy that I’ve have been calling Calculated Deception. The latter is deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture.
Voyager 1, a space probe launched by NASA in 1977, has reached the edge of the solar system, extending its record for being the most distant man-made object in space. On its trip, the probe has made observations of several planets and their moons. It also carries messages for any extraterrestrial life forms it may encounter on a golden phonograph record that includes information about Earth’s life and culture. The probe is now approximately 11 billion miles (18 billion km) from the Sun, and signals from the craft take nearly 17 hours to arrive back at Earth.
You can have anything you want – if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, have anything you desire, accomplish anything you set out to accomplish – if you will hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.

Got to have fun with a moron!
Early in the American Revolution and soon after the battles of Lexington and Concord, colonial troops laid siege to Boston. When they began occupying hills overlooking the city, newly reinforced British troops attacked. After two failed assaults, a third charge dislodged the Americans, who had run out of gunpowder. Though the British technically won, their unexpectedly heavy casualties were a psychological blow, and American morale soared. On what hill was the battle actually fought—and why? More…
Okay, obama says kids should not be used by politicians, and those seeking office, blah blah blah. The way I see it, the very damn minute he used his kids in this ad? Makes them FAIR GAME for the republican party to use them to dirty their mom and dad!
Except when HE wants to use his kids!
(USA Today) — The Obama campaign is marking Father’s Day with a new web ad that highlights President Obama’s relationship with his two young daughters.
The ad, which is narrated by first lady Michelle Obama, includes a montage of photos of and video of Obama with Malia and Sasha over the years. In the video, the first lady offers Father’s Day wishes to all dads and pays tribute to her husband, who she says has managed to remain immersed in their children’s lives despite the demands of his job.
In his biography and remarks over the years, Obama has repeatedly noted the absence of his father in his own life and the premium he’s put on his relationship with his two daughters.
“They know their dad is president of the United States, but when it all comes down to it, he’s there for them,” Michelle Obama says. “I don’t think he’s missed a parent-teacher conference in their entire lives. He’s at everything he possibly can [be]—every concert, every game that he can make. He knows it is important for girls to have the love and support of the most important man in their life and that’s their father.”
When obama decided to be a black….
Barack Obama decided to ‘become black’ after being teased at university by black students who called him ‘Oreo’, a new book claims.
The future President got sick of being compared to the black and white biscuit so decided to define himself as more African than American.
He spent hours listening to the music of Bob Marley and became obsessed with his deeply political album ‘Survival’.
Mr Obama also became a huge fan of Stevie Wonder and took a boring low paid job so he could understand what it was like to be poor and black.
Mr Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961 to a Kenyan father and a white mother but his parents split and his dad returned to Africa.
He spent most of his youth wrestling with the question of who he was and in the end constructed his own ‘blackness’ without a male figure to guide him.
In ‘Barack Obama: The Story’, Washington Post journalist David Maraniss reveals that during his university days at Occidental College in Los Angeles Mr Obama was mocked by UJIMA, the black student group on campus.
They found him unsure of who he was and too mixed up to be part of their society.
The group’s leader Barry Hook said that some of them ‘just couldn’t tolerate the multicultural style of Obama’.
He said: ‘They called him an Oreo. .?.?. We’d get into some discussions about the Oreos.’
Whilst at university Mr Obama had no time for the punk that was popular on campus, but he and friend Eric Moore bonded over their shared love of Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder.
More class from the left!
“Waiting to Exhale” author Terry McMillan managed to squeeze just about every anti-Republican stereotype into a stream of Twitter rants yesterday.
Oh, and she also compared members of the Grand Old Party to Hitler for good measure.
McMillan, known by many for using her May/December romance with a man who turned out to be gay to inspire her bestseller “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” told her Twitter followers she’s never been more scared of the big, bad, racist GOP.
Rep. Allen West says the new Dream Act policy issued by the president reflects desperation as he heads into reelection and has everything to do with “politicizing” the immigration issue and “balkanizing the United States of America.” He worries the impact that this will have on our unemployment rate, of which he notes is really about 14.8%, and says that he strongly disagrees with giving work visas to people under the age of 30 because the issue, he adds, isn’t about minors but rather adults.
On the issue of dealing with children of illegals who were brought here by their parents, Rep. Allen West says they don’t need to be deported but also doesn’t believe there needs to be a blanket policy fix either, especially one being issued via a verbal order by the president. He said instead these issues can be dealt with on a case by case basis.
Also, watch to the end for special surprise by Allen West on this Father’s Day.
