Oh but I think I found one credible threat of a democrat congressman. Maybe this is the angry Tea Party protester the MSM keeps describing? Oh never mind, he was a two time donor to Obama's campaign and a self described Shi'ite Muslim and the congressman was a Republican from VA.
Or maybe this one constitutes violence from the right?-never mind; it did happen at a Tea Party Rally but it was SEIU thugs beating up a black conservative selling bumper stickers in support of conservative ideals.
And was it the 2008 Democrat convention that had violent protesters? No, no that was at the 2008 Republican convention that elderly delegates were sent to the hospital from violent anti-Bush activists. I would say it was anti-war protesters but they have been strangely silent since the One took office so I can only surmise it was all anti-Bush rhetoric.
I know it was Biden's church that was burnt to the ground after he was chosen as the VP? No that was Sarah Palin's church in Dec 2008.
This must have been at a Tea Party rally. I am just sure of it. Nah, never mind it was in San Fran right after Bush was elected for the second time, which is something Obama will never be.
Muslims even got in on this particular violent rally against Bush in London.
John Hawkins has compiled a list of hate speech from liberals in this Townhall article. Go ahead, check them all out and then show me the ones where Tea Parties have erupted in violence or with proof have been disrespectful to any congressman as insinuated by the black caucus and Barney Frank without proof.
By the way, this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to violence from the entitled left. I left out all of the Code Pink rallies, the communist man flying his plane into the IRS building, and the shooter at the pentagon who was a 9/11 truther and Bush hater as well.
These are all things that make me go, "hmmmm..."

"There have been accusations of violence flying everywhere since the dreadful healthcare bill was passed on Sunday night. It’s certainly true tensions are running high, just like they have been for an entire year. And for good reason. Many of our freedoms as Americans were stripped away when healthcare passed. But are the threats of violence just a charade to distract Americans from learning about what the massive healthcare bill really does? I think so.
"Could you imagine what would happen if someone set fire to, say, Nancy Pelosi’s church? (Does she even go to church?)
"Or what if a Congressman who supported healthcare reform was beaten up so badly that he had to have stitches on his eye? How about if a Congressman’s car window was shot out because he opposed healthcare reform?
"The same media so excited to rush to protect the “defenseless” Congressmen barely mentioned that someone set Sarah Palin’s church on fire or that private citizens in California were personally harassed and targeted for simply suggesting that there should be a ballot initiative on marriage, or for donating to it.
"That’s right, Sarah Palin’s church was damaged by arson after the 2008 election. One man in Modesto, CA was beaten to a pulp because he was handing out “Yes on Prop 8” stickers and a pastor’s car was shot up because he also supported a ban on gay marriage.
"But you never heard liberal activists described as “domestic terrorists” did you? Of course not. That privilege goes to the far-left media and those who decided to ram healthcare down our throats.
"Congressman Eric Cantor, the House Republican Whip, whose own office was hit by what police say was a stray bullet at days ago in Virginia said yesterday that the Democrats are needlessly and “dangerously fanning the flames by suggesting that these incidents be used as a political weapon.”
"I agree. Not only are the Democrats acting like cowards but they are deliberately trying to distract the public from what’s really in the healthcare bill that they passed without ever reading.
"“Read the bill,’” said Rep. John Conyers. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”
Anyone in the public eye has war stories. There’s no need to call a press conference over a nasty email or phone call."

We went to a beach to walk in the sand and collect shells (G's favorite part of the trip). I got to take a 2 hour nap, Saturday. G and the 11 year old collected some worms to bring to G's grandad (oh yes she did). G also played volleyball and basketball with the 11 year old. Many checker games were played and many movies watched (DVDs). It was a very restful weekend, but I am still tired because you can't catch up on sleep (though sleeplessness is or feels to be cumulative; sleeping though, not so much).
G is now back to school and I am fully back to the food give away. We have less than 30 slots to go to 400 people, yippee! I will start calling volunteers this week and make sure the paperwork is all correct. After April 9 I will be able to catch up and comment on all my fav. blogs!!

Wednesday we went to the zoo with some different friends.

Today we are watching Muppets Take Manhattan (consignment tape). Grammie called too and mentioned that G's grandad bought her a basketball goal because he wanted her to have one. They had to take it back though because a part is missing in the box so off they went. We are waiting on them to get back so she can go play ball.
This week also started the sign up for the food give away so I haven't been around a computer until now. I have gotten some studying done though. We have less than 150 people to finish signing up to meet the 400 for April. I hope it gets done today or tomorrow cause G' has S.B. next week. Hoping it will be pretty and we can spend one day at the zoo!

I watched as another SUV going West hit the second deer, and I tell you I will never get that scene out of my head. I am so glad I didn't hit it but that was only by 3 feet or so that I didn't. Made me ill. Of course there was no way to stop or do anything since it didn't happen on my side of the interstate and other cars did stop on the other side. And I can only believe it was killed on contact. Can't stand to think of it suffering.
Anyway, I got to thinking of all the odd car accidents I have seen in my life. I watched my own dogs get hit (one died), I watched two bicycle riders get hit at different times of course (one had a foot severed), I watched other car accidents besides the ones I have been involved in and I once personally ran over a turtle which makes such an aweful sound that I really never can get that sound out of my head either.
I also backed over a stray cat that did suffer greatly because it didn't initially kill it and I can't forget the look and cry of that cat either. I also rescued a cat that someone else ran over and left for dead. That turned me into a hysterical wreck when I took it to the vet and paid to have it put down even though it wasn't mine (I think they didn't believe me that I just found it that way). Too much I tell you. Of course I haven't even really seen anything when compared to Haiti or the areas hit by Tsunami or other desperate areas. Truly mine are mere flea bites of terrible scenes if you think about it. Tis but a flesh wound in comparison actually. Not really even worth posting, really, but I did.
G even agreed to the girls making her bday cupcakes and pizza for dinner. G is so very excited and was so very excited last night when I brought it up that I had to silence her about talking about it so she could go to sleep. She has planned, asked questions, discussed certain scenarios and planned some more. So anyway, I have my mom feeling out the child's mom to make sure she will be willing to spend the night before I call her for the official invite.
Oh and I participated in a consignment dealio last week and made a bit over $200. I feel pretty good about it. I had 83 items submitted and sold 54. I came home with 29. The majority even sold at full price. Not that I have enough stuff to make me a full time consignor or even would wish to be! I also got some great video deals and books for G for $27. Included in that was a set of tinkertoys (probably not a full set) that G has so far enjoyed!

"You knew it was coming. Well, now you can carry around Che Guevara's quotes on your iPhone -- as just announced by the good folks at iPhone! Alas, many of us, though not customer of this unquestionably hip product, suspect that most of Che Guevara's hippest quotes are missing from this hippest of iPhones.
Among those we fear were overlooked: "My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood...Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!" (From Che's own diaries, later immortalized as The Motorcycles Diaries, though we note that executive producer Robert Redford "overlooked" this unquestionably dramatic citation for his movie.)
"Hatred as the central element of our struggle!...Hatred that is intransigent....Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine...We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow!... The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we'll destroy him! These hyenas (Americans) are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!" (thus spake the icon of flower-children)"
If you are letting your children or you yourself have Che stuff floating in a "way-too-cool-for-school" way, knock it off, keep it off your kids and learn what a true monster this person was. Don't let Hollywood dictate what you should or should not think of this murderous tyrant. If you chose to keep the Che stuff after learning what he did, then all I can say is you should move to Cuba. I suspect though any sane person, when learning what he stood for, would throw it to the dogs where it all belongs, and stop supporting people who hold this man up as a hero.

"A CRACK SUICIDE SQUAD FROM THE JUDEAN PEOPLE’S FRONT: Obama approval rating at 43%. 'Barack Obama hits the campaign trail again this month in support of a tremendously unpopular ObamaCare bill — and his numbers have started nose-diving again. Rasmussen’s latest daily poll shows Obama now at 43% approval, with 56% disapproving, the lowest figures of his presidency. His “passion index” has once again hit its lowest level at -21, as less than a quarter of registered voters now strongly approve of his performance. . . . It took George Bush almost six years to get to this level of job approval. Obama’s managed it in 14 months.'"
Thanks to Instapundit.
G and Grandad will be so very disappointed. And only after getting to use her new fishing pole from Grandad just once so far.
We need to stop the green movement in favor of humans. Guess what? Humans are the darling of the universe. Shouldn't be ashamed to say so!

I asked her why she wanted to give Woody away since her cousin had given them to her and she said, "They don't DO nuthin'." And they won't be sold as they are small and made of cloth.
As if I needed yet another reminder of how literal G is, here is this morning's conversation:
I don't remember what exactly we were talking about, but she asked me why someone did something and I said, "Well, you can just chalk it up to being not very bright."
To which she responded, "No, we only have one chalk board and that is mine. I will say when to put up the chalk board." heh heh heh

Read the whole speech, Islam and freedom cannot coexist.

G said, "What did she say?"
I said, "She asked for Joy."
G said, "But you can't give her that."
When I stopped laughing I said, "You are right who can give you joy?"
She said, "Jesus."

The sign up form asks for people to sponsor her at $10, $20 or more, yes it really does start with $10 and then goes up from there. She doesn't really have a goal per se, but I notice I have 62 followers on this blog and some of you have blogs so I am asking for a $10 or more donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (checks to be made payable to St. Jude) as a sponsor of G's math-a-thon participation. Also, would you put this out on your blogs so other people could sponsor her as well, please, pretty please with cinnamon and sugar?
Yes, I know the economy is in the tank and there is really not a lot to go around, but this is for a good cause. Actually two good causes, not just to give money to support St. Jude, but also to give G some mail. She told me yesterday that she never gets any mail from anyone. What a good way to do both, help St. Jude and send G some mail. Not just is she a math
If by chance you would like to participate (I would maybe do a happy dance in a vlog post if you do) please e-mail me or just a leave a comment with an e-mail so I can send an address to you. I will need to turn all monies in by March 18. I cannot pay on a pledge though so if you would like to help a little math
Paypal might work too but I would still need to submit name, addy etc for tax donation verification.

Incredible meltdown on TV. The deal is a complete misunderstanding of the origin of the Tea Parties. This is totally from the bottom up not top down like Obama's men. The organizers are from their own cities organizing meetings in their own cities.
By the way have you heard that Obama's organization has a talking points website for people to use and call conservative radio shows on behalf of Obamacare? Then the site asks the callers to come back and about the call.
Funny thing I noticed gaining two followers recently but I haven't been very political what with all the star student stuff and racial comments oh and the loose tooth dealio, maybe they will still around even if our politics don't match.

It really hasn't gotten to the point of truly coming out but it does hurt her when she eats something sometimes. I am guessing it hurts because it moves funny or something, eh?
G's grammie and grandad had lunch with her today at school which made G very very happy. They liked seeing her star student picture outside the class. Other kids liked seeing them come visit with G too.
We haven't been getting to bed on time lately which has added to the high emotional meltdowns around here, literally 5 in 3 days. We have got to get back on track with our sleeping!! G hasn't been snoring any since I purchased an air freshener from my Vollara website. I plugged it in next to the bed and literally she hasn't snored even with a sinus thing going on. So even though we aren't getting to bed on time this week, she is sleeping better while asleep as am I.
"The Bible is very easy to understand. But we as Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand we are obliged to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined. - Søren Kierkegaard"
Thanks to A Life Outside the Box for posting this. I hope I got the link righ;, my computer crashed, and I lost the link in the re-boot only to re-post from memory which you know is... what was I talking about again?

Calendar Girl! She's my Calender Girl!
Here she is the calendar helper for the week. The kids are asked to raise their hands when their birthday months are called so here they got to April.
I am very tired and G fell asleep in the car on the way home. What an exhausting day it is to be a Star Student or for that matter a parent of one, heh.
