Slow news days and not much to write about. Just wanted to say thanks to all who take time to stop by and read and comment.

I pray we survive the coming year.

Barack Obama’s self-absorbed, egotistical obsession is not leadership and puts this country at great risk. He is presiding over the spread of Islamic fundamentalists and fracturing the basis for international economic cooperation. But he does know how to play golf and vacation.

On that Happy note, enjoy the holidays.

    May all find a path with Heart on this Christmas. It is not enough to just survive the coming year. We must “Improvise, Adapt, Overcome”. I thank you for one of my prized gifts under the tree.
    The reminder that In our personal lives we must speak truth to power or be vanquised by lies.
    Peace unto all …pay it forward.

    Thank you Mr. Johnson for such a forum for all of us, and thank you to all the contributors. I appreciate all the info I get here, real unbiased valuable info.

    A merry Christmas to all.

    Larry, thank you for providing this forum for my frustrations with what’s happening in this nation. If my contributions are not always on target, at the very least you are keeping me off the analyst’s couch!
    Merry Christmas. By the way, I hear far more Merry Christmas wishes wherever I go than in recent years and I also see many, many more homes decorated with Christmas lights. It is a pleasure to behold and I can but hope that there is a movement afoot that can’t be stopped in this country.

    • KenoshaMarge

      Maybe people just want to enjoy their Christmas without the damn PC police telling them what to say. I am, in that spirit, wishing you a Joyous Christmas Elizabeth.
      And I love your contributions.

      • elizabethrc

        And I wish you the very same and send a very large hug to you. I am in awe of you and so many here who put a little sanity into this insane world with your sense of perspective (I think it’s the secret of life!) and your lack of meanspiritedness in getting your points across, something so painafully rare today. I learn something from you every day and for that I am so grateful.
        To not look back on my attitudes of last year and say to myself “how shortsighted or silly of me” is an indication that I have grown maybe a little and I owe part of it to the good and intelligent people here and even the ones who are not so good and not so nice. I use them as a measure of what not to be, how not to think.

        • KenoshaMarge

          I don’t know how I would have gotten through the past year, especially the past few months without the good people here. That most definitely includes you.
          If you learn something from me it’s only because I make an effort to find the truth. Not always easy these days but those of us who seek it and refuse to live by talking points at least deserve some credit for trying to find facts not hyperbole and bullshit.
          And you dear lady are far kinder and far less mean-spirited than I. Once my dander gets up I tend to fire all guns. Even the ones I’d rather I hadn’t.

    Merry Christmas and God bless all here and your families.

    Every year I find a radio station to stream Mannheim Steamroller’s “An American Christmas.” It’s wonderful to play in the background all day. You may learn something about the Christmas tradition too!

      Keno…….Turkey today with Wisconsin cheese ?

      • KenoshaMarge

        No turkey, I’m a vegetarian. But Cheese, here in Wisconsin, goes without saying!
        Hope you have a wonderful day Harp!

          You too my friend.

    • HELENK2

      please remember at this time of the year, this country has gone through bad times before and came out of them.

      we are a country of survivors. we have some that lose their way but most do love her and will do all that is humanly possible to keep her free.

      this poem is from a bad time in the country but we survived

      • KenoshaMarge

        Thank you so much for all that you do Helen. I hope you and your have the best of all Christmases and the very best New Year.

        Here is one of my favorite groups singing one of my favorite carols. Hope you all enjoy it and them.
