Lame Blogging Alert
Sorry for the nonexistent blogging, guys.
I spent the last 36 hours unconscious, which (as one might imagine) makes it hard to type. Still recovering, but will have a 4th of July post up tomorrow.
Here are two good reads, though:
... at her core, America is the mother who starts an organization in her kitchen to support some of her son’s brothers and sisters in arms, serving overseas. America is individuals seeing a need, and asking “how can I fix this? What can I do to help?”
America the beautiful that I see does not wait for a President to call them to one day of service. The America I love is the army officer whose career is dedicated to serving, and preserving his country, no matter who his CinC is. This same officer prays with his young son and wife as he heads off to Iraq. The America I know is full of special individuals who don't need to ask what they can do for their country. They are already busy doing it.
As the resident of the White House says she “has never been more proud of America,” the mother who welcomes her Marine son home from a warzone, as she bursts with jubilation, pride in her son and her country is the America I hold dear. She, and her son, ARE America.
As I look at America, I see the retired grandfather, who works longer hours now than he ever did, helping to make his community a better place, for the families in it.
Oh yes, Presidents come and go, but the real Americans I am blessed to call friends remain; it is they who ARE the America that most of the world never gets to see, as the msm perpetuates the mythology of the icon which is the President of the US – any president.
Read it all. Beautiful.

I am not America. I just transport it so its work can be done.

Yikes, unconscious for 36 hours! I hope you're well.
Here's a shot of noisy, digital adrenalin to get that ole Chrissy Matthews leg tingle going for the Independence weekend celebration.

Speaking of Moms in the USA, Governor Palin exits stage right with half a million in debt to defend herself and her family against the slurs from the fearful left. Interesting that she makes the announcement over the 4th of July weekend so that the small people who tried to destroy her can marinade in their toxic stew of pre-emptive self destruction.
I can only hope that she rises to fill the vacuum that is the Republican leadership today. She can also stand up to the sexists, misogynists and insane activities of the far left. Call her primitive in comparison to the coastal elites and their gated communities of seperate and never equal communities. They called her out and she accepted the challenge.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! We have had our first black president - how is that working out for us? Time to have our first female President with a "PAIR" not afraid to flaunt them! If I were Letterman, I would be looking over my shoulder! The same goes for that knothead Schmidt? running the campaign who refused to acknowledge her leadership abilities.
This extraordinary move will make my 4th of July one to remember! You go girl! Whatever the reason, you have my respect and admiration!

Priceless. There was no rain in the forecast...

Hmmm. Even a bear of small brain like me knows that's not good. Prayers going out to you.

Sending thoughts and prayers.

Cassandra, I hope that all is well with you. I haven't seen anybody effectively unconscious for 36 hours for fun since my long ago fraternity days--and I know that you're not and never were a drunken Pi K A at dear old State U.

Sounds like your body is playing "Catch-Up" from a marathon bout of Real Life...

Feel better soon. And I hope you're recovered enough to enjoy Independence Day. (Perhaps you can ask for the silent fireworks display if your head is still wobbly.) It's gorgeous here in New Jersey and hope it's just as beautiful down your way.

I feel better today, thanks :) Just a bit groggy. Though I just got up a few minutes ago. For me, 6:30 is usually "sleeping in"!

Shake up a pomegranate martini and celebrate the Froth of July...
