Yesterday was a significant day for the Jeffers’ Family and many of you played a large part in it. Ground was finally broke for the new Fisher House of the Emerald Coast on Eglin Air Force Base here in NW Florida. The wonderful and giving community here has already donated tens of thousands of dollars to support this wonderful charity. Nearly eight thousand dollars has been given in memory of Sergeant Eddie Jeffers. We are so grateful to all of you and know that our Fisher House here in the Florida Panhandle will be a home away from home for our precious military families.
Here is the groundbreaking site:
To piggyback on my last post, it seems that if someone steals during economic hard times it is the result of “survival panic.” Leave it to a psychiatrist to come up with this doozie.
“Your honor, my client, while he indeed did take items from Krogers it was not because he is a thief, it is because he had a panic attack,” presents the attorney, psychiatrist nodding in the afirmative.
(Hat tip to Lance Fairchok for this)
I have forever been saying that if I could ban one word from the english language it would be “entitlement.” If ever there was an example of what a social disease entitlement has become, the audio link below is it. Listen to this actual message left with a car repossession company. I have no words to describe my feelings.
Hat tip to one of my regular email buddies Pete whom many of you prayed for his wife Shirley when she was having heart trouble. This really helps to put Christmas into focus:
This morning I heard a story on the radio of a woman who was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable. And after hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.
SIT UP AND LISTEN UP!
CLASS IS IN SESSION!!
America, including all you Obama mice, disconnect your four-point-of-contact and read slowly and out loud if necessary the two following articles.
This is what is called speaking the plain truth, something most of you under the age of 35 are very unfamiliar with so tighten up your seat belts and get out a snivel rag if necessary to dab your eyes.
A very interesting development over at the American Digest and a hat tip to Larwyn Greer once again for alerting many of us in the blogosphere about this. Vanderleun has found some very inconvenient information about the President-elect.
First remember yesterday Mr. Obama’s statement referencing Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s arrest on “for allegedly seeking money from potential candidates for the U.S. Senate seat that Obama had held until he was elected.”
A hat tip to Rurik for this slide presentation.
This is quite a thorough explanation of what happened to the TERRORIST ATTACKSSSSS in Mumbai (Bombay), India.
You are not going to see this in the mainstream media.
Last year I posted an opportunity to make sure our troops in Hawaii, with many of them deployed, and their families had a wonderful Christmas dinner. That opportunity is available again this Christmas season. That seems fitting to post about today, the day that will live in infamy.
When I realize this need still exists it breaks my heart that our magnificent military families are still in financial need, especially around the holidays. Karen and I felt blessed to provide dinner for a family and many of you were so generous in your donations. Thank you!
The title is a rough translation for “Not Born Here” in Hawaiian. That is what the blog Earth Frisk is claiming and the evidence is compelling.
It’s been a few days since I last posted and I didn’t want to start the week out with all the gloom and doom that the news is filled with so how about some funnies?!! A hat tip to Bob Cousin for these.
GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:
