FYI, That is Just wrong

U. S. Army Warns Soldiers of Christian, Tea Party ‘Threat’ to Nation, Classifies Christians as “Domestic Enemies”

This has gone entirely too far.  According to this article at CBN.com, our United States Military freely and openly accept gays, witches, and satanists but label Christians as domestic enemies?!?!?!?

Soldiers at a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told evangelical Christians and Tea Party members were a threat to the nation, according to FOX News.

According to FOX journalist Todd Starnes, another soldier attending the briefing says they were told groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.”

The soldiers were also reportedly told donating to such groups could lead to punishment under military code

Again, it seems the only ones whose rights this government not only opposes, but  goes out of their way to squelch are the Christians’.  We have our rights, we just can’t use them.

Whether you agree with us or not, you know that this is just wrong.

The New Chrome Browser and Why I Stay With It

Somehow we were among those chosen (read “forced”) to try out a trial version of a new Google Chrome browser.  Let me start by stating that we have been using Chrome as our internet browser for several years now and we loved it.  Me in particular.  (They have absolutely the  cutest theme called Stitches


The pink and green at top look like linen fabric.  I love this theme!  Chrome, in general, is where my beef is.

They have just really messed it up.  if I accidentally closed a window full of tabs, (yes it is easy to do in Chrome and this is the only real fault I had with Chrome,) all I Used to have to do was open a new tab,  click “recently closed” on the bottom of the page and click on “28 tabs” (if that was the one I want reopened), and it would reopen.  If I had 9 windows full of tabs open and Chrome crashed, I could reopen them all.

Not so now.  I have the option to reopen up to only two windows.  I guess I should be grateful since we just got that much back.  Until today, reopening whole windows was not possible.

And they have a really good “parental control” feature which locks out whatever you tell it to.   It misses a picture every once in a while, but my browsing experience  is a whole lot better with it than without it.

Is Chrome perfect?  No, but neither is any other browser, so I guess I will stick with it for now.

And they have Stitches!

How “Obamacare” is REALLY Going To Be Paid For: The Truth Is Out

We knew it was too good to be true, and sure enough it is.  This is just exactly what the middle class needs now:  tax credits cut and ridiculously high and uncalled for taxes added. (***NOTE: This was typed dripping with sarcasm and my head shaking slowly and sadly).  Well, America used to be the Land of the Free.  We are, however, quickly becoming – for thirty-five percent and growing of American citizens – The Land of We Can Either Eat or Pay Our Taxes.

Read the story here. There will be twenty (yes, that is a 2 followed by 0 or 10 times 2) new taxes added to pay for Obamacare.  This article says, “In fact, analysts estimate Obamacare will cost the average taxpayer nearly $6,000 in extra taxes as early as next year. …The new taxes go into effect January 1, 2014. But they are already infuriating millions of Americans.”

You can also read about it here.

How much is this going to cost the American Middle class?

ONE TRILLION DOLLARS ($1,000,000,000,000).  Yeah, that is just what this country needs.  Right?  The middle class is already being eradicated  (See 60 facts that prove it here.), but let’s tax them even more!

Survival-ism is looking better and better from where I sit.

In fact, it’s starting to look down right essential!

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Our landfills are full and leaking and a lot of people, it seems, don’t know not to flush medicine.  Because of this, myriad medications are showing up in our drinking water to the point that the safety of drinking it is becoming very questionable. There is an answer though.

The D. E. A. is having National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this coming Saturday, October 26, 2013.  They will be taking back unused and expired medications and will properly dispose of them.

The program is open Saturday, October 26, 2013, and from 10 am to 2 pm.

To find the nearest take-back site go here and enter your zip code.

Remember: it is only Saturday, October 26, 2013 and only from 10 am to 2 pm.

Finally!  A really good excuse to make ourselves clean out that closet!  If you’re like me, I can always use more de-cluttering.

Now, where is that calendar?!?!
