Read & then watch video clip…

 

The attached is a recording from a car dash camera of a Los Angeles Police car in pursuit. The recording is only a minute or so in length.

This is a good justification of why the police should have such dash cams. Think of how vivid and accurately what happened can be communicated to a potential jury of the event. If YOU had experienced this chaotic event, without the dash-cam recording, how well could YOU explain to a jury of your peers what happened? According to “Black Lives Matter” officials, the black guys were not actually shooting at the cops. They’re just a couple of innocent guys en route to their college enrollment when the cops shot them IN THE BACK because they were black.

Of course, that explanation from BLM was made before the dashcam video capturing the chase and the shooting was publicly released by the police. Unfortunately, before the truth came out, local news reports indicated that this incident was just one more example of police targeting young blacks.

Sheila’s Understanding of Californians

I have noticed that a large number of people are implying, with bad jokes and anecdotes, that Californians are not real smart.

I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment.

Anyone who would build cities on the San Andreas Fault and in the path of the annual Santa Ana winds….and then fill these cities with Democrats…

is a Damn Genius.

ON MY SOAPBOX…Life needs a rewind button


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

Heavens to Murgatroyd….was an expression popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss, a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s. Murgatroyd!  Do you remember that word?

Tell a youngster that in your youth, you drove a Jalopy. They will be totally confused and ask, “What is a Jalopy?”

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and get a Chuckle from it.

Some old expressions have become obsolete because of the unstoppable invasion of technology.  These phrases included:  A kodak moment, Don’t touch that dial, Carbon copy, You sound like a broken record, and Hung out to dry.

Back in the olden days we had a lot of  moxie.  We’d put on our best bib and tucker, to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy!  Gee whillikers!  Jumping Jehoshaphat!  Holy Moley!

We were  in like Flynn and  living the life of Riley; behind our backs we may have been called a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill.  But not to our face….Not for all the tea in China!

Remember when life was SWELL? When is the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pedal pushers.

Kilroy was here…..but he isn’t anymore.

Earliest human drawing discovered in South African cave

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, “Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!” We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed as common as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues, pens and  keyboards.

Poof,  go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind.  We blink, and they’re gone.  Where have all those great phrases gone?

Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it.  Hey!  It’s your nickel.  Don’t forget to pull the chain.  Knee high to a grasshopper.  Well, Fiddlesticks!  Going like sixty. Okidoki, I’ll see you in the funny papers.  Don’t take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! (Carter’s Little Liver Pills are gone too!)

Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth.

See ya later, alligator!

 

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS PAST. NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN.  WE WERE GIVEN A PRECIOUS GIFT:  BEING BLESSED TO LIVE IN AMERICA WHEN ALL AMERICANS LOVED OUR COUNTRY. THANKS TO THE DEDICATION AND MORALS HANDED DOWN TO US BY THE “GREATEST GENERATION!”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—Save our monuments


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

SAVE OUR MONUMENTS!

Rockdale County, Georgia Commission Chairman Oz Nesbitt announced Tuesday, June 30, 2019 that the county would remove the statue of a Confederate soldier from outside the courthouse building in Conyers, Ga., and  was taken down by midnight on the same day. Legislation was passed by the General Assembly of Georgia and was signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp in 2019 prohibiting monuments from being altered, removed, or discarded. The law states:

Chapter 3 of Title 50 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to state flag, seal, and other symbols, is amended by revising subsection (b) of Code Section 50-3-1, relating to description of state flag, militia to carry flag, defacing public monuments, and obstruction of Stone Mountain, as follows:

    (b)(1)  As used in this subsection, the Term:

         (A)  Agency means any state or local government entity, including any department, agency, bureau, authority, board, educational institution, commission, or instrumentality or subdivision thereof, and specifically including board of education, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, and any institution of the University System of Georgia.

         (B)  Monument means a monument, plaque, stature, marker, flag, banner, structure name, display, or memorial constructed and located with the intent of being permanently displayed and perpetually maintained that is:

                (i) Dedicated to historical entity or historically significant military, religious, civil, civil rights, political, social, or cultural events or series of events: or

                (ii)  Dedicated to, honors, or recounts the military service of any past or present military personnel of this state; the United States of America or the several states thereof, or the Confederate States of America or the several states thereof.

         (C)  Officer means an officer, body, employee, contractor, representative, or agent of any agency, whether appointed or elected.

     

         (2)  It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, corporation, or other entity to mutilate, deface, defile, or abuse contemptuously any publicly owned monument located, erected, constructed, created, or maintained on real property owned by an agency or the State of Georgia. No officer or agency shall remove or conceal from display any such monument for the purpose of preventing the visible of the same. A violation of this paragraph shall constitute a misdemeanor.

         (3)  No publicly owned monument erected, constructed, created, or maintained on the public property of this state or its agencies, departments, authorities, or instrumentalities or on real property owned by an agency or the State of Georgia shall be relocated, removed, concealed, obscured, or altered in any fashion by any officer or agency; provided, however that appropriate measures for the preservation, protection, and interpretation of such monument or memorial shall be prohibited.

Please contact Governor Brian Kemp’s office and tell him to please uphold the rule of law and prevent any more  of Georgia’s historical monuments and memorials from being removed, especially the Stone Mountain memorial. We must take a stand against the Marxist mob that is hell bent on destroying the history of our great country. True, slavery was a terrible blot on the history of this country. It may be offensive to some people, but it must not be erased from the history books. George Orwell may have said it best when he wrote: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”

 

If you reside in Georgia. Please forward this post to your friends, family, or anyone who believes our country and its history is under siege and ask them to contact Gov. Kemp’s office at:

gov.georgia.gov or call 404-656-1776

“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” Category

A bill introduced by New York state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi (D-Bronx) would require police to obtain personal liability insurance to cover civil lawsuits filed against them for excessive force and other abuses as a way to deter misconduct.

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

I have a suggestion for the Marxist mob. Just paint Communist China’s flag on the street instead the Black Lives Matter mural. It would be a lot easier and would save you a lot of time.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Comet NEOWISE over the Swiss Alps
Image Credit & Copyright: Philipp Salzgeber, foto-webcam.eu; Text: Adam Block

Explanation: Comet NEOWISE has been wowing photographers around much of the world during dawn and dusk, at the margins of day and night. For the most northern residents of planet Earth, however, the comet circles the North Star and never sets. The night part of this circular arc is apparent in the featured composite of images assembled from a webcam located at a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. Images were selected at 30-minute intervals throughout the night from July 12th -13th. Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) will continue to become more accessible to northern hemisphere observers as its motion places it higher in the sky each evening after sunset over the next few weeks, as it begins its outbound journey. As with all comets, departure from the inner Solar System comes with inevitable fading. Binoculars are the best way to find and observe the comet visually.
