After I get up in the morning, I begin the cruise for news and posts at my favorite sites. Usually I follow the same routine each morning.
UPDATE: Over $1,000,000.00 was raised!! Read all about it.
Some say Carlin was way out there when it came to his observations of life in the U.S., or anywhere, for that matter. His routines could get edgy and uncomfortable--depending on where you stood on an issue. But overall, this guy was a comedic genius. I have one of his books, "Brain Droppings", and it's funny from start to finish. The bonus, though, was that his comedy often left you thinking, which is rare in the comedy industry. Thinking is good...or bad, as he observes in this routine about education: (since it's Carlin, language warning)
Recently, two stories came to light that are disturbing and dangerous. One we can do something about come November; the other we have to live with for quite some time. Many stories get reported by bloggers and just go by the wayside as newer, more shocking stories develop. However, these two stories are not going away. And, like I said, we can do something about one of them this November. If we lose the White House to Obama and congress to the dems, there will be little we can do about either of these stories. November is everything.
Melanie Morgan's weekly commentary at WND--HOT TALK--is now published. I urge all of you to read it because it's one of Morgan's most important columns.
I mentioned above that Andrea Shea-King is involved in this effort. She's included in the All-Star line-up that will be broadcasting "live" on June 26. Andrea's part in this effort was even mentioned in my local Sacramento paper.
Pictured below is Andrea. Because I work with Andrea, I often have her picture posted here at my site, and, I might add, she takes a good pic. But this time, I don't have her picture posted for you to see her; I wanted you to see the lady to her right. This is Mary Lou Wade from Florida's Space Coast and Andrea's very good friend. When it comes to supporting our military, few can match Mary Lou's passion.
For decades, Mary Lou and her family suffered with the loss of a loved one. That loved one was one of our military heroes. Loss is one thing, but not knowing is quite another--Capt Herbert Crosby, Mary Lou's brother, was MIA for decades. Last year he was finally brought home to his family and laid to rest at Arlington. Andrea attended and reported on it.
This kind of loss and suffering can jade and weaken even the strongest of families. It would be understandable. Mary Lou, however, hasn't been weakened. In fact, I think she's stronger than ever. Even after being pounded with grief year in and year out, she continues to think of our military. She's an inspiration and we could use more like her.
This past week, Mary Lou did something that made a difference. Did you? Some would say it's no big deal--but I think it is given what this woman and her family have been through. She went that extra mile in pointing out something we rarely consider as we go through our daily lives here in the States. And she did it with our military in mind.
I'm not at liberty to mention what she did and it's really not important that I do so, but if you read Morgan's commentary, Mary Lou's fingerprints are all over it. And, Morgan did a great job of painting the picture for us.
Whether it be time or money, it isn't important how large your contribution is to the support of our military; the important thing is that you contribute something and continue to do so when you can. Our military needs our help; they deserve our help.
Now, if you think Mary Lou's done for the week, think again. Go that extra mile, make a difference. Be like Mary Lou.

Rep. Murtha and Time Magazine reporter, Tim McGuirk, are about to pay the price for their dangerous and irresponsible actions against at least one Marine. LTC Chessani and his attorney are drawing up battle plans:
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- A military judge dismissed charges Tuesday against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis.
Here's where we are now:
Of eight Marines originally charged in the case, only one is still facing prosecution in the biggest U.S. criminal prosecution involving Iraqi deaths to come out of the war.
Give Murtha a call at 202-225-2065 to see if he has a comment. Malkin has much, much more.
Known as "The Daisy Ad," it was the most controversial political ad in the history of televised, presidential politics. The ad aired one time and had to be pulled. But its effects lingered (MSM replayed the ad on nightly newscasts) and LBJ won the White House going away in the 1964 elections. Tony Schwartz obit. (I bet this movie ending had everything to do with the making of this ad)
What qualifies Obama to be our next president? Good question. And it's one that we shouldn't have to ask at this stage of the presidential race. We should already be clear on this point, but we're not.
Radio Patriot has a nice tribute from her hometown.
Soon after I got up this morning, I found myself reading a story about trees in France. It didn't take long to get good and pissed off at the French again. But, on second thought, I'm not too sure I should be pissed at them.
Yesterday was an important day for all Americans. It was not a good day, either. We learned two more things about the democrats.
We're beginning to see some fallout from Hillary being thrown under the bus. One of Hillary's supporters has started his own website--HCSFJM.COM--and the site is getting huge traffic. Let's hope this catches on. Head over and pump his stats!!
We've seen enough stories about the selling of key American businesses as well as parts of America's infrastructure to indicate that, yes, America is for sale. Now, don't get me wrong. Doing business with folks is a good thing--investment is a good thing, but not transactions that involve key industries and infrastructures with national security implications.
The government tracks and reports on transactions involving foreign investment on a regular basis. Hell, the government tracks just about everything these days and these reports provide the public with some very important information. Maybe, too important.
Now, what I'm about to tell you is completely the fault of Americans like you and me. We've caused our government some problems by having the audacity to follow up on things we think are dangerous to our Nation.
At times, we wrote about it, emailed about it, phoned congress about it, even faxed about it. Need I mention Talk Radio?
For example: When we found out about the Dubai Ports deal and made our voices heard, the deal had to be scrapped. The aftermath of our stunt left those in Washington very unhappy.
Since then, our man at Treasury, Henry Paulson, has been running around the globe trying to drum up investments in America. Seems he's being met with some reluctance, thanks to loud mouth Americans like you and me:
"In May, during a four-day trip to the Middle East that included Saudi Arabia and Dubai, U.S. Secretary of Treasury Henry Paulson encouraged foreign investment in the United States, arguing the controversy over Dubai Ports in 2006 did not reflect an adverse U.S. attitude toward foreign investment."
After voicing our concerns about certain Nations investing in America, mainly Islamic Nations, those Nations are now trying to calm our fears:
"WND previously reported since the beginning of the year, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, two of the largest United Arab Emirate states, have been in discussions with the U.S. Treasury, offering reassurances that their investments in U.S. banks and security firms would not impose restrictions usually dictated by Islamic law, commonly known as sharia."
I feel much better, now. How you feeling?
PROBLEM SOLVED: By reporting on such deals as Dubai Ports (Duncan Hunter comments), we created some political roadblocks for the "Monty Halls" in Washington who purport to represent our best interests. So much trouble was caused that they came up with a very simple, yet effective, solution.
"Foreign investment in the United States is on the rise and key U.S. businesses and infrastructures such as roads and airports are being sold to foreign investors. Now comes word from the U.S. Department of Commerce the Bureau of Economic Affairs will stop publishing a key report tracking those foreign dollars." (my emphasis)
Read the story as reported by WND's Dr. Jerome Corsi.
**Here we go, again--another voice. If you're not careful, Washington's next "solution" might be shutting down the internet. After all, they have deals to make and we have our "assurances". Please, DO NOT WRITE about this subject anymore. Stop...before it's too late.
The news is all over the place...especially in Detroit!! In a related story, it's being reported that unemployment figures are expected to surge by at least one...in Detroit.
Veteran ABC sportscaster, Jim McKay, died Saturday at 86. McKay was one of the best sportscasters in the history of televised sports. His name and voice were known worldwide through his decades-long association with ABC's Wide World of Sports. The show's intro by McKay:
Last night, the primary season came to an end with Obama sealing the deal. The only unfinished business for the dems is what Hillary's role will consist of in the coming months. As of today, it's Obama v. McCain.
Let's recap here: We have Obama's ongoing racist church fiasco...and we have the Florida--Michigan seating debacle. No matter how either of these are dealt with, some huge block of voters are going to be pissed off. The gal in this video is explaining how and why McCain will be the next president, and she's a Hillary supporter!! I'm tellin' ya, this a freak show--and it's FREE FREE FREE:
