It's A Tough Day Today

Portugal, Spain, fun and frivolity after twelve days in Europe and it all pales in comparison to the hurt people are forced to endure after a genuine tragedy. Maybe you heard this story that took place last Friday on the West Coast. As I now know it was covered by the national press and television networks and was on the front page of the DrudgeReport. I read about it in Europe but didn't put two and two together. A 9 year old girl died when she was covered by sand after falling into a sinkhole on an Oregon beach. Normally, and we all do this, we'd read the story and say, "How sad", then move on to other things. I'll be leaving for the Minnesota lake cabin on Thursday and since I'd be driving through Wisconsin thought I'd give my dear and 36 year long friend who lives there a phone call hoping we could get together. Except, he wasn't in Wisconsin. He was in Oregon. The girl who died was his granddaughter and I found out the horrific news as he explained his loss in between sobs of anguish. My friend and his wife were notified after halftime of a high school football game. The field was  being dedicated to him in his honor and a party was to follow the game. For the rest of his life he will have to associate what should have been his professional shining moment with this disastrous situation.
Writing about Portugal doesn't seem like much fun today. Praying and reflection are more appropriate. If you have children and grandchildren love them and hug them. I'm having a very tough day today.

The 35.4%

109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded "means-tested programs" — also known as welfare — as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.
The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.
But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.

How To Railroad A Man

I make this prediction: With the governor of Missouri demanding vengeance before the evidence has been presented against Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson the man will be railroaded. Without regard to the evidence, Eric Holder will have the federal government carry out as many autopsies of Mike Brown as he can to have Officer Wilson indicted. Forty FBI agents are in Ferguson. That's 40 more than investigated Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the VA and  IRS scandals combined!. By the time I return from Europe Officer Wilson, now in hiding, will have an indictment brought against him by a paid off and/or cowering grand jury. There's a civil war coming and this administration will have to answer for it. They are the primary instigators causing racial problems since the Divider-in-Chief too office.

What Quote Does Eric Holder Carry In His Wallet

According to Department of Justice whistleblower J. Christian Adams, AG Eric Holder has a certain something in his wallet. It is a quotation — and he has carried it for decades. It essentially says, to quote Adams, "Blackness is more important than anything, and the black US attorney has common cause with the black criminal." It's not surprising that Holder would feel this way about black lawyers and criminals.

Personally, I'll Take Elin

Strange bedfemales are these two comely ladies. Ex-wife of Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren shown on the left, has just splint with her 56 year old billionaire boyfriend. Wood's current flame is Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn. News reports state that Nordegren realized that Vaughn would be spending a great deal of time around her two children and wanted to better get to know her. She did and they've now become best of friends, so say the tabloids. Both are snazzy looking but, for me, I'll still take Elin. I hear she's the better cook.

OMG! The Left Will Say It Was Self-Inflicted

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Obama Taking Orders From P Diddy

Since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, the nation has watched the situation in Ferguson, Mo., continue to deteriorate as tensions boil between the police and protesters.
While watching coverage of Ferguson on TV last night, Diddy took to Instagram to deliver a video message to President Obama.
"This sh-t ain't right," Diddy said. "Obama, get on a plane -- it's serious. These are your people, baby. These are your people."
