THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE


Why do you keep coming here?…… Mom ask.  Without giving a seconds thought I replied “This is where you are.”    She just smiled, as much as she could, like it was the most meaningful thing she had heard in a long time.   I was glad I said it.

I saw her in the cafeteria of the Lutheran Senior Services Center at the dinner table.   I walked up behind her, took a chair on the end next to her, just her and me.   She looked up, recognized me just as she always had; she didn’t look the same to me.  A “that isn’t my Mom” thought came to mind.  Her eyes were sunken a reddish pink color.  A hollow look ……..my real Mom isn’t there anymore.  It’s the first time I ever felt that.  She looks lost, defeated.

Just a few days earlier she was ready to go home; but she has more days of rehab., to gain strength back from a short hospital stay.  Maybe she was just having a bad day.  She was tired from rehab.  She couldn’t hold a fork in her hand…..there was silverware on the floor underneath the wheelchair.  What a difference a day makes.

We spent some time talking, only bits and pieces made sense.  I really didn’t want to leave her.   After awhile I got up, rubbed her back and told her I loved her.   As I walked out, all I could see was her face, lost, lonely, but this was a different loneliness than what she has felt since we lost my dad.  I feel helpless.   Maybe tomorrow she’ll be back, I can tell her I love her.

There is no love like a mother’s love.  If you are fortunate enough to still have yours, give her a hug and tell her you love her.   What a difference a day makes.

Family Of Immigrant Detainee Sues President Obama, Government For Wrongful Death


THAT’S CALLED OBAMACARE !

CBS Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)   —  A local family says it will sue President Barack Obama and several federal agencies because their loved one, an immigrant being held in various detention centers, died while waiting to get medical treatment.

Nancy Luna fought back tears Friday as she discussed her husband’s ordeal.

At a news conference Friday, attended by CBS2’s Amy Johnson, Luna said her husband had Type 2 diabetes, and his care was neglected.

He was held at the Metropolitan Detention Center, among other places.

Last March, Roberto Aguilar Batista, 38, died from complications of diabetes at the Dalby Correctional Facility.

“It’s so tough, because he was so young,” said Batista’s niece Esmeralda Aguilar.

She said her uncle was constantly writing letters.

“He was letting [his wife]  know it was really tough in there. That he didn’t want to be in there,” said Aguilar.

Batista lived in the LA area for 10 years with…

President Obama Clarifies Administration’s ISIS Policy: “We Are Fucking Clueless”


Perfect…………Maybe by the end of summer, after we figure out what to do about the immigration thing at the Southern border, maybe then we can come up with some kind of plan.

Sounds good B.O.

The Cretonia Times-Picayune

THE CABIN ANTHRAX, MURPHY, N.C. (CT&P) – At a White House press conference yesterday President Obama outlined U.S. policy regarding the group of savage religious zealots known to the world as ISIS. The position has been described by pundits as a policy “hovering somewhere between vague and nebulous.”

Although the Administration has ordered around 100 airstrikes on ISIS targets around Iraq, it waited until it was almost damn well too late to do so, and it has stopped short of bombing targets located within the borders of Syria, thus giving the Stone Age terrorist cretins a safe haven from which to operate.

“We don’t want to get all crazy and upset the delicate balance of power within Syria,” said Obama. “If we did that, something bad might happen. We’ll eventually get around to some kind of plan, but we just don’t have a strategy yet.”

White House Press Secretary Josh…

HILLARY SPEAKS, BUT IS THE JURY STILL OUT?


Hillary Clinton is shown. | AP Photo

A quote from Hillary Clinton:

“Imagine if white drivers were three times as likely to be searched by police during a traffic stop as black drivers, instead of the other way around,” she said, or “if white offenders received prison sentences 10 percent longer than black offenders for the same crimes.”

The above statement was Hillary’s response, first words after nearly three weeks on the shooting in Ferguson and the protesting/rioting.   I’m not sure why Hillary should be so well versed on this coming from Arkansas.   There weren’t too many blacks or whites for that matter getting pulled over by the Arkansas Highway Patrol.  Their responsibility back then was finding and dropping off young ladies for Bill.   By the way Hillary, I thought a lawyer would know that police officers don’t send blacks or anyone to prison.  Do you understand the responsibilities of judges and juries?  If the jury finds you guilty of breaking the law, the judge will impose a sentence which may include prison and will determine for how long.    Where did the 10% longer sentence come from for blacks?  I’m not arguing it, but I am questioning it; I’d like you to actually confirm your stats with sources, you know back it up.  Sorry, but you’ve had credibility issues lately.

Hillary I noticed you scooted right by the Ferguson “situation” without saying a word about Michael Brown or the shooting.  Is the “Jury still out”?

“Jihad” Recruiters Arrested in Netherlands, Germany


Reblogging this as some on Twitter have called me paranoiac for mentioning recruiting such as this could or could be happening now.

Friends of Syria

Militants 21Police in the Netherlands and Germany have arrested two men for allegedly recruiting “jihadi” fighters to go to Iraq and Syria, Dutch police said Thursday.

A woman was also held with the man arrested in Germany as part of a long-running investigation, police said in a statement.

All three are from The Hague and are accused of inciting hatred through social media and plotting terror attacks, police said, likely referring to help allegedly given to would-be extremist fighters to reach the Middle East.

“The two male suspects are suspected of recruiting for the armed terrorist struggle in Syria and/or Iraq and conspiring to commit murder with terrorist intent,” the statement said.

Dutch police said they raided four homes as part of the operation.

State broadcaster NOS said that the man, 32, and woman, 24, arrested in Germany were a married couple.

Nine people have so far been arrested as part…

Obama Going On Democratic Fundraising Trifecta


Why is it politicians, for lack of a better word for the moment, are so successful and energetic raising campaign funds, but so poor at everything else? Help me out here.

CBS DC

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is going on a fundraising sweep through New York and Rhode Island as he continues to help Democrats raise money for November’s elections.

Obama headlines three events on Friday. Two are just north of New York City, in Westchester County, and the third is in Newport, Rhode Island.

The New York fundraisers will benefit the Democratic National Committee, which is still paying off debt from the 2012 campaign season.

In Rhode Island, Obama is the headliner for a fundraiser benefiting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which works to elect Democrats to the House.

Obama is expected to be joined at the Rhode Island event by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

He’s spending the night in Westchester County.
