President Carter On President Obama

President Carter gets, and takes, the opportunity to fall to the position of second worst President in our nation’s history.

In describing Obama’s successes or shortcomings of American foreign policy, Carter says . . .

I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when he took over.

Remembering The Time, And Sacrifice

Remembering those who fought for, and died for, their country on Memorial Day Holiday.

The country was never more united in the effort. In music, and in Hollywood.

In movie theaters . . .

Buying War Bonds was buying a share of freedom. I can’t imagine what they would be called today.

Suicide By Train?

Today’s incident occurred on the tracks beside Hwy 97A,  just south of Quintet road, Cantonment, FL. There are two sheets covering the tracks, about 15 feet from each other.

Today makes the second pedestrian death by train in three days. The victim today has yet to be identified except that it is a male.

UPDATE 4/5/2015: Local news sources have not reported that the victim had been identified. This “comment” on North Escambia’s website tells all we need to know and, what to do.

From the father of the victim . . .

I am the father of this young man. This is a horrible thing to have happened for everyone involved. My request is that prayers go out to his 5 brothers and 1 sister that is enduring a horrific period of time in their lives. I also request that we keep the Engineer in our prayers.This particular incident involved more then my son. The engineer was fairly young. He did everything correctly and everything he could have to possibly avoid such a horrid ending. I pray for you as well I know your life has been affected greatly with this incident.I hope you see this. I personally want you to know your in our thoughts as well.

On A Jewish Holiday

After the mid-term elections, Barack Hussein Obama, not feeling well and concerned about his mortality, goes to consult a psychic about the date of his death.

Closing her eyes and silently reaching into the realm of the future, she finds the answer: “You will die on a Jewish holiday.”

“Which one?” Obama asks nervously.

“It doesn’t matter,” replied the psychic. “Whenever you die, it’ll be a Jewish holiday.”

What a memory!

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is
not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs  to look for him.

She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of
coffee in front of him.

He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip
of his coffee.

‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she
steps into the room. ‘Why are you down here at
this time of night?’

The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘It’s the 20th
Anniversary of the day we met.’

She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear
up.

The husband continues, ‘Do you remember 20 years ago
when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only
16,’ he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears.

‘Yes, I do,’ she replies.

The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily.

‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back
seat of my car?’

‘Yes, I remember,’ said the wife, lowering herself
into the chair beside him.

The husband continued. ‘Do you remember when he
shoved the shotgun in my face and said, “Either you
marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20
years?’

‘I remember that, too,’ she replied softly.

He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, ‘I would
have gotten out today.’

The Lunch Counter Blog, The First 10 Years

Timeout for a moment to mark some time. A decade. That’s how long The Lunch Counter Blog has served up politics, the right way. Exploring the issues, exposing the Left, holding the news media to account, and generally annoying Liberals with no argument beyond name-calling.

The Lunch Counter software has evolved as information sharing software evolved. Beginning with a software platform called Radio UserLand, then finally settling on WordPress.

Take a look back to August 2004, when The Lunch Counter began.

Looking forward to another decade.

Biden Discharged From Navy, Fails Drug Test

Hunter Biden, the youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden, has been kicked out of the military after testing positive for cocaine. Why not require a drug test for everyone who works in The White House, including the president? What’s good for the goose . . .

Whether President Obama would have passed a drug test on the night of 9/11/2012 is still out there. What he was doing on that night is still not known.
