A Conservative Oasis in a Desert of Liberalism

Disgusting, Despicable…..

Here are some of the things taking place in the world, and in the USA this week:

Malaysian airliner shot down by a Russian-made missile

The US southern border overwhelmed with illegal immigrant people from Central America

Israeli-Palestinian war in Gaza, where Hamas shoots rockets from residential neighborhoods

Court rulings cast ObamaCare subsidies into doubt

Planned Parenthood suggests sadistic sex to teenage girls

US Marine held in Mexico for 113 days-the US does NOTHING to get him back

The IRS scandal continues to fester, with officials’ honesty questioned



He does the only thing that he does really well, he goes out of town (in Air Force One, on YOUR DIME), to attend Fund-Raisers!  And the equally sorry excuse for a Media, simply slobbers all over his boots, and whines about poor, poor Barack...

The world around us is, literally, burning, and OTL holds $35,000 per person fund-raisers for the Democrat Party.  Here’s hoping all those funds do him no good, and in November he gets his ass handed to him on a platter, and the Republicans take back the Senate and increase their lead in the House.

Asking for Advice: What should I do with my First-generation iPad?




As of this fall when the new iOS is released, my first-generation iPad will no longer be upgradeable.  I bought mine the first week they went on sale, and it has been lovingly cared-for all its life, so it’s in pristine condition.  I will definitely buy a latest-generation one.  I can get about $200 from Apple if I trade it in on a new one.  Or I can keep the old one as a collector’s item, and just pay full price for a new one.

What would all my readers/followers suggest I should do?  Please leave a comment!


Steeleye Span


Great Music, Re-discovery of a group I love: Steeleye Span

Way back in the 1970′s, when they were new, I discovered a British band called Steeleye Span.  They play and sing medieval and Renaissance English folk songs, with modern rock instrumentation.  Sounds weird, but they were, and are, simply wonderful.  I still own a bunch of vinyl albums from their early years, and we play them sometimes on our turntable.  But a couple of weeks ago, on Ricochet, a member posted a link to a 1975 promo video they did, singing their song “All Around My Hat”.  I could not remember ever hearing that song, and it occurred to me that I had never seen them!  I bookmarked that video, and I play it at least once a day now.  Their lead singer, Maddy Prior, has a gorgeous voice, and she really does a great job with all their lyrics.  Take a gander at this:

I guarantee you’ll love them.


I’m Up to the Challenge: Dinner Party Edition~History’s Best

This week’s challenge is a great one for me, as I have already given lots  of thought to who I’d invite to my “ideal dinner party” table.  First, the table is round, so everyone gets to talk to everyone else.  First guests are myself and my husband.  We are both middle-aged, Conservatives, and classical musicians (he plays clarinet and accordion, and I play violin).

Given the title of my Blog, the invitees are, first, Rush Limbaugh and his beautiful wife Katherine.  Rush is deaf, and has difficulty with hearing in large crowds, so they would be seated together.  Next guest is Johann Sebastian Bach, unarguably the world’s premier musician and composer.  No one, but No One, surpasses Mr. Bach for contributions to music.  My husband is a huge admirer of Bach, and he would have some excellent stories to tell about his times.  Next is Mr. Adam Smith, whose book, The Wealth of Nations, marked the beginning of Free Market Capitalism, which has enabled more of the world’s people to escape from poverty and tyranny than any other idea.  Finally, the last guest would be Mr. Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.  A polymath, who made contributions to our country in many different fields (science, business, music, statecraft, government, letters…), he also would be a terrific conversationalist, who could enlighten the party with stories of the early USA.  I’m almost certain that Rush would be in Heaven at this dinner table, deafness or not!

All Hubby and I would have to do, aside from providing dinner, would be to sit back and listen, and learn from all of our distinguished guests.  My guess is that this dinner party would go on for many productive hours.  Daily Post-here’s one more!

We Stand With The State of Israel

US-Israel flags


For the past week, Hamas Terrorists from Gaza have been raining their rockets down on the State of Israel.  Their rockets are fired from within civilian residential areas of towns.  And they have the unmitigated gall to demand a cease-fire from the Israelis!  Hamas has absolutely no problem with targeting Israeli civilians in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Rishon L’Zion, and Haifa.  They have brought the Israeli airstrikes on themselves.  Hamas is evil.  It is time for Israel to finally put them out of business.

And the One that inhabits our White House bears a huge portion of responsibility for the failure of the United States to support the only working democracy in the Middle East.  His behavior is despicable.  And with his declining approval ratings, one religious group supports him and is policies: Muslims.


Save Hillary? Donate to Her (undeclared) Campaign?

There has been a great deal of commentary regarding Mrs. Clinton’s recently-released book, in which she tried the “poor me” defense.  So far, she hasn’t been able to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of most potential purchasers (I heard that the publisher printed over one million hard copies, and fewer than 15% have sold).



Hat Tip to Rand Simberg on Ricochet.

I do have to agree with Rush from way back in 2008-would you want to watch Hillary age?!
