THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Recommended Posts

Preparing to say Goodbye

Clint Eastwood
at 84
In My Twilight Years
 
 
If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my age.  As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end.  There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn't any "more."  No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.  It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let everyone of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, "He was my friend, and I know where he stood." 
 
So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this:  I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!
 
Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.
 
Best Regards,
~~~ Clint

 Quotes attributed to Clint Eastwood

http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/c/clint_eastwood.html

( just a few)"... Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that's real power. Clint Eastwood Respect, Power, Efforts They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning. Clint Eastwood Funny, Heaven, Lightning The country has come a long way in race relations, but the pendulum swings so far back. Everyone wants to be so sensitive. Clint Eastwood Race, Sensitive, Wants I don't like to see a president who is just out campaigning all year long or for the last four years. I'd like to see somebody who's going in the office. In fact, I'd like to not see them because that way you'd be sure that they'd be working. Clint Eastwood Office, Year, Fact It's a very confusing era that we're in. Clint Eastwood Confusing, Era It takes tremendous discipline to control the influence, the power you have over other people's lives. Clint Eastwood Power, Discipline, Control You make a movie, and if somebody reads something into it, then great, more power to him. Clint Eastwood Great, Power, Somebody Crimes against children are the most heinous crime. That, for me, would be a reason for capital punishment because children are innocent and need the guidance of an adult society. Clint Eastwood Society, Reason, Punishment There's a rebel lying deep in my soul. Clint Eastwood Deep, Soul, Rebel Comedy isn't necessarily all dialogue. Think of Buster Keaton: the poker face and all this chaos going on all around him. Sometimes it's a question of timing, of the proper rhythm. Clint Eastwood Chaos, Timing, Face When you're young, you're very reckless. Then you get conservative. Then you get reckless again. Clint Eastwood Again, Reckless And I think it's that time. And I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane. Though maybe a smaller one. Not that big gas guzzler you are going around to colleges and talking about student loans and stuff like that. Clint Eastwood Time, Step, Student I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it. Clint Eastwood Control, Gun, Policy I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it. Clint Eastwood Tried, Reasonable If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster. Clint Eastwood Funny, Buy, Toaster I mean, I've always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else's hair. Clint Eastwood Alone, Hair, Leave You should never give up your inner self. Clint Eastwood

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. 
 He had not even so much the led the Cub Scout troop, coached the sports team, or Commanded the military platoon.
So he is made the "Beloved Leader" Of North Korea.
 
 Terrific!
 
 
Oh nuts! I'm sorry...
 
 I just remembered That We did the same thing. 
 

 

We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, never ran so much to an ice-cream stand, and made him Commander-in-Chief.
The guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him "Beloved Leader" of the United States - Twice! 
So if you think North Koreans are stupid ...
 
I'm sorry I brought this up .... never mind!

Do-It-Yourself el-cheapo mosquito trap
Modern
          technology has brought us many benefits, including mosquito
          traps that cost hundreds of dollars, but sometimes we overlook
          simple solutions to difficult challenges such as mosquito
          control. When it comes to controlling pests, research tends to
          focus on chemicals or concepts that can be patented. Unless
          someone can make a profit from an idea, the public may never
          become aware of it.
          HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
          Items needed:
          200 ml water
          50 grams of brown sugar
          1 gram of yeast
          2-liter plastic bottle
          Or US conversion:
          1 cup of water 1/4 cup of brown sugar
          HOW:
          1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
          2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour
          in the bottom half of the bottle.
          3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide,
          which attracts mosquitoes.
          4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of
          the bottle, taping them together if desired.
          5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top
          uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your
          normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color
          black.)
          Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control.

This is what we get if Trump isn't elected.
 
BILL CLINTON'S LOVING WIFE --- by DICK MORRIS
           
If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background, beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone. I offer a few corrections:
 
Bill says: "In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor."
           
Facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in 'Law School' was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a 'Federal Agent.' She went to Court every day as part of a Law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.
 
Bill says: "Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a Children's rights project for poor kids."
           
Facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.
 
Bill says: "Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers."
 
Bill says: "Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers."
           
Facts are: She flunked the D.C. bar exam, 'Yes', flunked it, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, 'None', and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.
 
Bill says: "President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its Chairman."
           
Facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.
 
Bill says: "She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital."
           
Facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart Board of Directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.
 
Bill says: "Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance."
Facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.
 
Bill says: "Hillary was the face of America all over the World."(LOL)
           
Facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.
 
Bill says: "Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for Children's and Women's issues."
           
Facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire N.Y. delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize Woodstock.
 
Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our Country (that's you and me) when it comes to the 'War on Terror'.
           
Facts are: She flunked the D.C. bar exam, 'Yes', flunked it, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our Country (that's you and me) when it comes to the 'War on Terror'.
1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.
 
  2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA.
 
  3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.
 
  4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA.
 
  5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the Military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.
 
One cannot think of a single 'Bill', Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our Country in the 'War on Terror'. But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our Country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us. 
           
Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.
 
Share this with everyone you know, ask them to prove Dick Morris wrong. Think about it - he's (Dick Morris) said all of this openly, thus if he were not truthful he'd be liable for 'Defamation of Character' !
And you better believe Hillary would sue him.
 
Her winning in 2016 means the final death knell for America! Her whole public life has been a LIE.
 
By Dick Morris, former senior political adviser to President Bill Clinton

SIMPLY AMAZING, WHEN YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT IT.
 Isn't it amazing that, within only one week of Tiger Woods crashing his Escalade, the press found every woman with whom Tiger has had an affair during the last few years?     And, they even uncovered photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc.! 
 
 Furthermore, they not only know the cause of the family fight, but they even know it was a wedge from his golf bag that     his wife used to break out the windows in the Escalade.     Not only that, they know which wedge!    And, each & every day, they were able to continue to provide America with updates on Tiger's sex rehab stay, his wife's divorce settlement figures, as well as the dates tournaments in which he was to play.
Now Barack Hussein Obama has been in office for over seven years, yet this very same press:
  Cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors;
 Nor find any of Obama's high school and college  
  classmates; 
 Nor locate any of his college papers or grades;
  Nor determine how he paid for both a Columbia and a Harvard education;  
 Nor discover which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the 1980's;  
Nor even find Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis on racism. They just can't seem to uncover any of this.  
 
 Yet, the public still trusts that same press to give them the whole truth!   Don't you find that totally amazing ?   NOW TELL ME THERE IS NO CORRUPTION IN THE  AMERICAN PRESS. 
 
Remember, you cannot get the water to clear up until you get the pigs out of the creek.

Never Said Better

You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville , Florida on January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote: The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio . The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered,settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.

 A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers,union members,environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood,uninformed young people, the"forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other"fellow travelers" have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take zealots, not moderates, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status. People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order. The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told. Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness.

Got the guts to pass it on? You bet I do and just did.

HJ and all valid passport holders and Brazil visa's. The hottest weather here is in Sept. and Oct. then in Nov. it starts to get a little cooler for the rains to start. The rains are usually from mid Nov. to April. Some days it rains a lot and some it only gets cloudy and around 80°. 

One good thing to think about is there are thousands of small gold bearing streams here that have never seen a dredge!

I just so happen to have a 5" in moth balls. One or two days tinkering with the Hondas should put it back in top shape. 

HJ the cost of a Brazilian visa is $160.00 USD. Then when you leave another cost of I think is 80.00, don't know if that is in Reis or Dollars. The visa is usually good for 90 days. 

GYN is the airport for the state capitol here in Goias.

Two guys grow up together but after college one moves 
to  Maine, the other to  Texas .
They agree to meet every ten years in Vero Beach and play golf.
 
At age 30, they finish their round of golf and go to lunch.
“Where you wanna go?”
 “Hooters.” 
“Why?” 
“Well, you know, they got the broads, with the big racks, and 
the tight shorts, and the legs …”
“OK.”
 
Ten years later at age 40 they play.
“Where you wanna go?”
 “Hooters. 
“Why?”
“Well, you know,
they got cold beer and the big screen TVs 
and everybody has a little  action on the games.”
“OK.”
 
Ten years later at age 50 they play  
“Where you wanna  go?” “Hooters.”
“Why?”
“The food is pretty good and there is plenty of  parking.”
”OK.”

“OK.”

                                                         McCarran-Walter Act

 

Wouldn't it be interesting if, at some point during his Presidential campaign, Donald Trump asked, "Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, DC, ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?"

Not many know of this act, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.
 
Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington, DC, do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in their OWN country.
 
After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims). 
 
The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and racist. 

Congressmen and senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our illustrious president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.
 
Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the "Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.

The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary,  suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate."
 
And who do you suppose last enacted this process? Why, it was Democrat President Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States.
 
But he actually did more. 
 
He made ALL Iranian students who were already in the United States check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. 
 
Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.
 
So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat senators, representatives, and the Obama administration?
 
Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”

Dear College Cupcakes:
 
Ray Starmann
 
Editor in Chief, US Defense Watch
 
 America has watched for the last year or so, as our nation’s universities have been consumed by a new strain of left wing totalitarianism that has all the traits of the haunting Marxist dictatorships of the past.
 
Free thought and expression and discussion are disappearing from college campuses and being replaced by behavior and lexicons out of 1984.
 
In the greatest arenas of free speech across this land, you shriek and howl and cry and stamp your feet like two year olds when someone disagrees with you.
 
You have mental meltdowns when reading passages from the world’s greatest literature that somehow offend you in every conceivable way, shape or form.
  
You feel oppressed and terrorized when viewing someone in a Halloween costume that you dislike.
You are triggered by opposing views from Presidential candidates, who do nothing more than say things that you may disagree with.
 
When triggered by every imaginable word, phrase and action on this planet, you find it necessary to retreat to so-called safe spaces, where you will be further coddled by counselors, Play Doh and Bubble Guppy videos.
  
Like raving martinets, you accuse anyone you disagree with of being a racist, a rapist, a sexist or any other derogatory term you can create to soothe your tender and warped psyches.

You have been told for your whole lives how special you are and these fantastical words have been reinforced by the ridiculous behavior of helicopter parents and idiotic teachers who found it necessary to control every facet of your lives and ensure that each of you precious little snowflakes received a trophy, even though many of you only deserved a kick in the behind.
 
Your latest irrational tirades concern the election of PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP. Inspired by the lunatic behavior of your socialist professors, you are the laughing stock of the rest of the country as you hold cry-ins, need therapy dogs and hide under the covers in your dorm rooms because a man was elected President.
 
Today is Veterans Day, when we honor those who served, which I have no doubt none of you ever have. The nation particularly honors our combat veterans who drained deep the chalice of courage and who fought against real racists, like the Nazis; real boogeymen like the Imperial Japanese Army, the Chinese, Victor Charlie, the Republican Guard and the Taliban.
 Today, at this very moment, as you tearfully meltdown because Donald Trump is our next President, our current military is in harm’s way in Mosul, fighting real sexists who call themselves ISIS.
 
King George, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Saddam, these were real threats, some of the greatest madmen the world had ever seen and our veterans fought and defeated them in hot and cold wars.
 
Our veterans, men and women, many of whom were your age at the time they served, never had the luxury to wallow in self-pity over imagined nonsense and monsters.
 
Their threats weren’t created in the hallowed ivory towers of Harvard Yard. Their threats were created in the British Parliament, in Bavarian beer halls, in jungle outposts and jettisoned across the globe to cause havoc and death. The only thing that stopped them, the only thing that prevented the world from descending into darkness was the US military and our veterans.
 
There were no safe spaces on Iwo Jima or Omaha Beach. There were no cry ins on Bunker Hill or at the Frozen Chosin. There were no counselors in the Ia Drang Valley or at Khe Sanh. There was no time to protest imaginary enemies at Fallujah. The enemies were real and were doing their damnedest to kill Americans and destroy our way of life.
 
As I stated, our enemies were fighting against Americans who were mainly your age. I and many Americans have serious doubts that you aggrieved marshmallows could rise to the occasion and fight anyone, much less the Redcoats or the Waffen SS.

 How and why America has gotten to a point where being a wimp is looked upon as normal behavior for young people is the subject of another article and a disgrace in itself.
 
Instead of claiming half the nation is racist for voting for Donald Trump, you precious little snowflakes might want to get off your asses and read about men who overcame real prejudice and racism and fought for their country; like the Tuskegee Airmen.
 
Instead of being offended by words in books, you precious little cupcakes might want to step out of your safe spaces and read about American matadors at places like Trenton, the Wheatfield, Seminary Ridge, the Meuse-Argonne, the Bulge, New Guinea, 73 Easting and Tal  Afar.
 
As for the election, get used to saying President Trump.

Suck it up buttercups.
