Busy days of Spring
Cleaning winter out of the yard was a longer process this year but, it’s finally finished. All that is left is cutting the bamboo down so it will flourish. Spring has finally made it to the North Coast! Deciding to take a much needed break from the crazies on Capitol Hill and just enjoy the outdoors always gives me a huge boost. We all need a break on occasion. A myriad of phone calls came in for projects and the balancing act began. This year it caught me by surprise.
There was a big uproar on the Rhode Island University campus. Seems there were rumors of a gunman on campus. Campus Police jumped into action, armed with pepper spray and batons. Campus police are not allowed to be armed due to a state law. State highway patrol were still arriving 20 minutes after the report went out. Does anyone else see something amiss with this scenario? Rhode Island is the only state that, by law, prohibits university police from carrying guns.
The Obamas’ certainly had a good time during the “sequester soul concert”, bobbing and weaving as the family was serenaded. Bo even sang along. In the meantime, one third of our combat jets have been grounded.
‘The current situation means we’re accepting the risk that combat airpower may not be ready to respond immediately to new contingencies as they occur,’ Gen. Mike Hostage, commander of Air Combat Command at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, said in a statement. The Air Force’s budget for flying hours was reduced by $591 million for the rest of the fiscal year. Air Force officials have warned that such cuts could lead to the forces being listed as ‘sub-optimal’ levels of readiness, the Air Force Times said, also reporting the 17 squadrons that will stand-down. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2306513/The-Blue-Angels-grounded-Air-Force-active-combat-jets-taken-sky.html#ixzz2Q3wbZZhE
By now most of you have heard about the new Obamabudget….dead on arrival as per usual. Dhimmicrats are up in arms….the “Kind of” Party. The Fiscal Times reports the fourth time will definitely not be the charm for the Obamabudget. But, when as a private sector citizen one runs up 300 grand in credit card debt, we really should not expect any understanding of the word “budget” from Our-Man- in the -White House.
We haven’t heard the last of the Wright family. Maybe the FBI is acting “stupidly” too?
“Unexpectedly” the jobs report is as bleak as ever; A Fourth Straight Spring and Summer Bummer
This time, as a well-known Democrat amazingly noted on Sunday, President Barack Obama, his administration, fear-mongering leftists, and their sky-is-falling media apparatchiks shouldn’t be able to hide from the direct results of their handiwork — though of course they’ll try mightily.
We’re still at square one, incompetence and political one-upmanship, a drooling Neanderthal media, greed, fraud and waste at every level of government, and no end in sight for any respite from all of it.
