Finding humor in life is really very easy….

Image result for random acts of kindness



True story. Last week in the grocery store, a gentleman walked up to me and said, “has anyone told you that they love you today?” I replied, “No, I cannot say that they have, but the day is young.” He said, “That was a random act of kindness and Tuesday is my day to do Random Acts of Kindness.” I smiled, he smiled and we parted ways.

I did not feel more loved and his act did not appear random since Tuesday is his allocated day to disperse kindness. Perhaps, our government has incorporated a twelve step program for unkind people? It may start like this…”Hello, my name is Sheila and I have been unkind.” The group would respond “Hello Sheila.” I did think about the concept of ‘random kindness sharing’ as I was driving home. I decided it is a good idea.

Who can I help? Who is in need of help? The answer came to me a few minutes later as I was watching television. It was like a Divine Intervention. A Nutri-System commercial was the source of my inspiration.

Poor Marie Osmond. For twelve long years she has talked about losing 50 pounds. I know I would have given up long ago on the search. I would like to ask for the people in Readerland to assist me in my Random Act of Kindness. Please do not pick a specific day or time, that would not be random.

Just be alert that somewhere in our great country, fifty pounds has been lost by Marie Osmond. If you find it, do the right thing and return it. She may even offer you a reward. She may give you an autographed copy of “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock & Roll.”

Or fifty pounds of “Paper Roses.”






The Editor:  Is this really about love, LL ?

Cupid Cat:  Some of it is,  O.J. is first.  Like Simon Says O.J. has a viewpoint.  Love is all around.

Simon Says.

O.J.  ” has a little getting even to do ” he said/exclaimed on Twitter.

Loyal reader MST suggested that KARMA wasn’t finished getting even with O.J. yet.

Here is an old quote from Hillgal and George Stephanopoulos.  Hillary said to George ” I love you, George Stephanopoulos “,  George said to Hill gal ” I love you too “.

Here is more Hillgal and Slick Willy news.  The play couldn’t get enough government employees to buy tickets.

Here are two ( 2 ) love birds/traitors that should be tried for trying to overthrow the government.  Someone produced a play about their antics.  Romeo & Juliet, Sampson & Delilah, move over.

Here are songs for our optimist and realist.

A View Toward M106

Explanation: Big, bright, beautiful spiral, Messier 106 dominates this cosmic vista. The nearly two degree wide telescopic field of view looks toward the well-trained constellation Canes Venatici, near the handle of the Big Dipper. Also known as NGC 4258, M106 is about 80,000 light-years across and 23.5 million light-years away, the largest member of the Canes II galaxy group. For a far away galaxy, the distance to M106 is well-known in part because it can be directly measured by tracking this galaxy’s remarkable maser, or microwave laser emission. Very rare but naturally occurring, the maser emission is produced by water molecules in molecular clouds orbiting its active galactic nucleus. Another prominent spiral galaxy on the scene, viewed nearly edge-on, is NGC 4217 below and right of M106. The distance to NGC 4217 is much less well-known, estimated to be about 60 million light-years.

From the Deplorable Infidel



When the State Department announced in October 2013 that it was cutting
hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Egypt, it was yet another
manifestation of Barack Obama's unstinting support for the Muslim Brother, a
support that had already thrown Egypt back into the Russian orbit. The aid
cut was essentially given the Egyptian people a choice between Muslim
Brotherhood rule and economic collapse. Nothing else could have been
expected from Obama, who has been a Brotherhood man from the beginning.
Obama's support for the Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his
presidency. He even invited Ingrid Mattson, then president of the Islamic
Society of North America (ISNA), to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral
on his first Inauguration Day - despite the fact that ISNA had admitted its
ties to the Brotherhood. Even worse, in April 2009, Obama appointed Arif
Alikhan, the deputy mayor of Los Angeles, as Assistant Secretary of Policy
Development at the department of Homeland Security. Just two weeks before he
received this appointment, Alikhan (who once called the jihad terror group
Hizballah a "liberation movement") participated in a fundraiser for the
Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Like ISNA, MPAC has links to the
Muslim Brotherhood. 


Early in 2009, when the Muslim Brotherhood was still outlawed in Egypt,
Obama met with its leaders. He made sure to invite Brotherhood leaders to
attend his notorious speech to the Islamic World in Cairo on June 4, 2009,
making it impossible for then President Hosni Mubarak to attend the speech,
since he would not appear with the leaders of the outlawed group. Then on
January 31, 2011, when the Mubarak regime was on the verge of falling in the
Arab Spring uprising, a former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Frank Wisner, met
secretly in Cairo with Issam El-Erain, a senior Brotherhood leader. That
Meeting came a week after a Mubarak government official announced the
regime's suspicions that Brotherhood and other opposition leaders were
coordinating the Egyptian uprising with the Obama State Department.


Obama's foreign policy displayed a decided pro-Brotherhood orientation.
Former U.S. prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has listed a great many strange
collaborations between Obama's State department and Muslim Brotherhood
organizations including:

*       Secretary Clinton personally intervened to reverse a
Bush-administration ruling that barred Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the
Brotherhood's founder and son of one of its most influential early leaders,
from entering the United States.

*       The State Department collaborated with the Organization of Islamic
Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Brotherhood, in
seeking to restrict American free-speech rights in deference to sharia
proscriptions against negative criticism of Islam.

*       The State Department and the Obama administration waived
congressional restrictions in order to transfer $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt
after the Muslim Brotherhood's victory in the parliamentary elections. 

*       The State Department and the Obama administration waived
congressional restrictions in order to transfer millions of dollars in aid
to the Palestinian territories notwithstanding that Gaza is ruled by the
terrorist organization Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestinian branch.

*       The State Department and the administration hosted a contingent from
Egypt's newly elected parliament that included not only Muslim Brotherhood
members but a member of the Islamic Group (Gamaa al-Islamiyya), which is
formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization. The State
Department refused to provide Americans with information about the process
by which it issued a visa to a member of a designated terrorist
organization, about how the members of the delegation were selected, or
about what security procedures were followed before the delegation was
allowed to enter our country.


Once in power in Egypt, the Brotherhood government drafted a new
constitution, enshrining Islamic law as the highest law of the land,
restricting the freedom of speech and denying equality of rights of women.
The Associated Press reported that the constitution reflected the "vision of
the Islamists, with articles that rights activists, liberals, and Christians
fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities and
civil liberties in general. Egypt was a reliable and pivotal ally of the
U.S. in the Middle East for three decades. With the Camp David Accords it
kept an uneasy but unmistakable peace with Israel, while the Sadat and
Mubarak regimes kept a lid on the Brotherhood and Salafist forces that were
clamoring for Egypt to declare a new jihad against the Jewish State. Egypt's
unwillingness to go to war with Israel during that period stymied the
anti-Israel bloodlust in neighboring Muslim countries as well, for Egypt's
size, position, and history give it a unique in the Islamic world.

The Muslim Brotherhood said the following in a memorandum laying out its
goals to dominate America:

*       The Muslim Brotherhood must understand that their work in America is
a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization
from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the
hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made
victorious over all other religions.





Farmers up and down California's Central Valley are up in arms over the
state seizing their land to build the now defunct high-speed railway and
then failing to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars owed then for
years. California cannot pay its citizens for land seized by the state, but
they have plenty of money to pay for illegal aliens' health care.



You can't give the government the power to do good without also giving it
the power to do bad - in fact, to do anything it wants.
