Here´s to hoping we all keep our jobs, the unemployed find new jobs, and Obama can´t do too much damage, and therefore focuses on different ways to get applause and adulation for himself. It´s the only way to keep him busy yet without harm to ourselves.

Having some shrimp dumplings from Trader Joe´s and wonderful Korbel champagne.

I have high hopes for a "kick them where the sun don´t shine" year and will keep fingers crossed...and take back MY country. I can´t express the rage I really feel because my Irish temper would get me kicked out.

Happy New Year to all in 2013!

Happy New Year. I pray that in 2013 the Republicans in the House remember to read the Constitution and stand up to the Dictator-Wanna-Be Obozo and use the power of the purse to stifle this evil man and his agenda.

Boehner needs to stand up or stand aside.

My usual optimism is really being strained by the turn this country has taken and direction that was confirmed in November. God Help Us. Oh, and Obama Voters...you´re on your own, you´ll get NOTHING from me. Go ask your Uncle Sugar, I´m personally all tapped out.

To top off this great year, I just stopped up my garbage disposal. I came in to my computer to calm down before trying to fix it.

2013 has to be better!

Happy New Year......one day closer to the end of the Obama era. Remember the old Charlie Brown strip, he´s walking out of the house with the weight of the world on his shoulders.
From inside comes a voice..."Have a good day Charlie Brown.........survive." That is my prayer every day for our wonderful country.......SURVIVE!

Two scientific predictions for 2013.

1) We are just over a week from breaking the record for the most number of consecutive days without a tornado fatality in the US (197). January is the safest month for tornadoes in the US, so we have a good chance.

https://twitter.com/spann/status/285798051082289153

2) There´s a comet coming in 2013 that could be a great show. Comet predictions have a terrible track record, so note the word "could."

And God bless America´s authentic patriots who have secured and maintained Life, Liberty and Justice for ALL throughout the history of the USA! We know that, ´´Freedom Isn´t Free,´´ but we cherish the bountiful blessings and possibilities which America´s Constitutional principles of respect for each individual´s inherent liberty provide.

God bless the USA and that personal Liberty for which it stands!

May this be a blessed and happy new year for all of us; and may health abound especially to our generous Hostess and her faithful staff.

To get our minds off the fake illnesses of various political actors in the news lately, I have put a platter of garlic bread sammiches at the end of the bar for those who forgot to eat hearty before clinking glasses in the new year. (Or for those who could get lost in a snow bank or a dense fog.)

How its done: 6 slices (purchased) frozen garlic bread--heat by directions on the package; top each with slice with dejon mustard, thinly sliced ham or turkey and some Swiss or Gruyère cheese. Toast lightly until cheese melts. Serve them on a pretty platter to mask how easy it is.

A most happy new year to the Lucianne staff and all of the posters, from the north Georgia mountains. This web page has helped me in so many ways. I pray that 2013 will be a better year, personally and politically.

I did a lot of cooking/baking over the holidays, so my contribution to the virtual buffet is a Honey Baked Ham -all I have to do is pick it up and pay for it!

A happy, healthy and blessed new year from our house to all the Lucianne family, the staff and all Ldotters. This country wasn´t destroyed by the civil war. We survived Pearl Harbor and successfully fought the Germans and Japanese simultaneously. A skinny Chicago street hustler is going to be a piece of cake by comparison, even with an allied MSM and an army of uninformed voters. Keep the faith.

Happy New Year and good health to all. I consider myself lucky, I remember growing up in the great State of Vermont, before the communists moved in, I remember how great California was before jerry brown became governor in the 70’s and things started to erode, and I remember how wonderful America was when the Democratic Party was full of patriotic folks, before carter, clinton and this wretched administration set out to destroy this noble Experiment in Democracy. But I still have hope thanks to all who share this forum.

I´m going to join my cousin and his wife at the San Diego Zoo for an early dinner, along with a group of friends. We always enjoy the company of the animals on New Years. They can´t regurgitate left-wing talking points, and they´re safely confined to cages, where the Left in this country belong.

It looks like 2013 is starting out to be the year of the venomous snake, a king cobra perhaps. Fortunately, snakes eat their young, so maybe Harry Reid will devour Nancy Pelosi, who will in turn be gobbled up by Robert Gibbs. Not that I wish ill on anyone, mind you...

Happy New Year to the best people in the world (wide web)! I´ve made my annual New Year´s meat and veggie egg rolls as my contribution. I´m passing on any libations, though, as I may get to drive my daughter to the hospital to deliver a new granddaughter to our family at any moment! Her hubby is currently in Afghanistan, so I´m blessed to be his stand-in!

It´s been a tough year, but I´d just like to thank you all for your wit, wisdom and insight each and every day. I depend on it more than you can know. I wish you all of you lovely LDotters every blessing in 2013. Cheers!

Dear Ldotters,
2012 has been one heckuva year for me. I finally finished my divorce in July which went on for almost 3 1/2 years. I gave her everything there was to give money and property wise plus an extra $2,000.00 to top it off. It was wort every penny and more and I am happier now than ever in my life. My career as an Architect has hit bottom thanks to the economy. The good news is I went to school this month and now have a Security Guard license. I will continue on and become an armed guard and maybe I can protect children in schools in the future. Not sure what gun to buy. Thinking of a Sig Sauer 9mm, or the Smith & Wesson Sportsman 10mm. Probably will go with the 10. Bigger is better. Go ahead and make my day suckahs.... :-) 2013 is going to be awesome! Happy New Year to all!!!! JJ

Thank you Lucianne and Staff. You allow me to vent a lot of frustrations.

First, I am not a doctor, but many members of my family are. They all agree that the treatment of Hillary defies all medical logic. From her diagnosis of brain clot to the treatment of blood thinners. The usual result from such treatment is death. Sorry Hillary, but you know too much.

Happy 2013 everyone. Things can only get better.

To the L-Dotters and your contributions, Friends you enlighten me beyond the bounds of nation/state.

Happy New Year All! Be blessed in the knowledge that "Truth Prevails"

2013 begins my career as an author of "The Fighting Hawks at D-Day" an historical fiction to teach our kids the value of their freedom. Freedom isn´t free will no longer be just a slogan. One of the characters is my stepson who was killed in Iraq. Available on Amazon.

Please take time tonight to remember our military all over the globe fighting to keep us free. Please especially remember the families of the fallen in 2012. Tonight will be a very difficult night for them.

May God recognize that this country is still worth saving. There are still more of us than them.

Happy New Year fellow LDotters! It will be up to God, with our help, to save this great nation!

Happy New Year to all great LDotters, to our wonderful Hostess and her family, and to the Staff that helps keep this place on the ball.

Hagar has been busy shucking some delicious Chesapeake Bay oysters for us to enjoy as single fried oysters, all you can eat. If you prefer them raw, then we have those too. Blackeyed Peas are in the crockpot along with some yummy greens to round out the offerings. Sure hope someone else thought of homemade rolls and maybe some dessert....we got FAMILY to feed here!!

Some of you great folks join us the rest of the year on the Connection....we sure need all the good people we can get.

Bless you all.

I am also sad to see Photoonist disappear. What an amazing contributor and, poof! gone? Hazymac signed off, and I´m sorry to see him go as well. I hope they come back in the new year along with others who I may not have kept tabs on.

As for me, well, I really don´t feel like celebrating anything this evening. Do we have anything to look forward to? Is survival something to look forward to. I wish there was a bigger fight I could join in to defeat the hijackers who have stolen our country.

I resolve to do my part to go Galt in the New Year as I do think that is the best we can do short of a full-on revolution. Each individual needs to work to undermine Obama at every turn by simply not playing along -- don´t create wealth and don´t pay tax by not creating wealth. Live frugally. Find enjoyment in denying the leftists their golden eggs, as they cut us open to get them all now.

Glad to have a place to go for New Year´s Eve, lol. We seem to have hit this timeframe where the college kids get to go out and the teenagers still need rides because they need rides home, but we stay home! Ugh. I will be attending a Watchnight service tonight at church - my first, so I´m curious - but I´ll be glad to have a drink with you all in the meantime!

Hi everyone! Here´s to a happy, healthy and hopeful 2013 -- no matter what anybody else says. I´m not particularly religious in the traditional western fashion, but I love when I hear Christians say "I´ve already read the last chapter, and we win." Way cool. THAT´S the mindset that will get us through this beastly fix we´re in.

It´s cool and clear out here in the SoCal desert. New Years Eve is amateur night -- second only to St. Paddy´s maybe -- so I´m diving for cover safe at home this evening. A couple cocktails (ok, a few) and some fun on the phone with my out-of-state homies, a few pop-ins with you guys, and poof! it´s 2013. Up at 5:30 for an early morning desert bikeride, and that´s that. Life is good. Bring it.

Molon labe.

Happy New Year!

Thanks, Lawsy0, for the garlic sandwich recipe. Sounds delicious, and is about as complicated as I dare go in the kitchen.

Happy New Year to all my Ldotter friends, especially those who I´m not seeing around much anymore. It is my hope that they will eventually wander back home.

Happy New Year with heartfelt thanks to Lucianne and her fabulous staff. May the new year be filled with many blessings for you and yours.

Also saw that on Election Day were Photoonist´s last post #36 and #53 ...

Hopefully he still lurks and will know how much we miss him... and maybe stop by and help me carry one of the magnum´s of bubbly from the back seat of Miss Lucianne´s pink caddy parked behind the diner... Stopped by our OC pizza bakery for three of their yummy white [extra] garlic and spinach pizzas, to keep with all y´all´s garlic theme ... and can carry them myself... And a virtual pound and a half of See´s dark chocolates for Miss Licianne and her team since she promised another song at midnight ... and a trip to see the Hop Bird at the Zoo at noon, which we hope will become a Blessed New Year´s Day tradition for all LDotters... xoxo

Happy New Year to my Ldot family from south central PA. Sorry I already ate all the Brie. I received my latest Limbaugh Letter newsletter today. I´d like to share a little bit. The photo on the front is Rush wearing a tux. WOW! The back cover has an illustration by Mark Herron. It´s sad but at the same time deliriously funny. His creativity is suburb.

Thanks for the comfort and good laughs and also the tears from this wonderful group of like minded people.

After the election I was very upset and just happened to open the Bible to 1 Timothy 2: 1-3 and found my peace.

Thanks to Lucianne and all the staff. Happy new year to all and keep the faith.

I wish dear Lucianne and her family, the incredibly dedicated, talented staff and all of you wonderful L-Dotters a very healthy and happy 2013. 2012 was a killer with the disastrous ruling on 0bamacare and the even more disastrous re-election of the malevolent 0bama and all that that brings. It´s been a tough one. I too wondered what happened to Photoonist. There is definitely a void without him and his posts.

I have been avoiding the news for the last few days. I´m sick of hearing "fiscal cliff" over and over again. There´s only so much you can tolerate. I don´t know what we would do without this port in the storm during these difficult times where we can all comisserate over the difficulties are we facing in our nation. My best to all of you for 2013. We will all persevere somehow.

I have really missed Photoonist. I really hope he comes back but realize that he was very disappointed about Obama´s re-election.
Happy New Year to all of you and for just being there.
No matter what the results I still love my country. My 17 yr old refrig gave up today. I picked up the phone and in 2 hrs, I had a new refrig delivered and the old taken away. Where in the world could you do that? Remember that simple joys matter.

Happy New Year, belove Ldotters, Ms. Lucianne, and all of the hard working staff that keep everything going.

2012 was a rough year between losing AB, then later, the election. It has been the wonderful people here that have made going forward with hope, possible. We´ve already been to Mass, and prayed for our country, our enlisted, and our loved ones. We must endure.

I left a wonderful selection of hot Hors d´oeuvres- including our family favorite, hot beef and horse radish toast points- on the bar. The wine is on it´s way.

Love to all, and prayers for all of those who have taken a vacation from this family. Until they return, we will hold them in our memories, and welcome them when they are back.

Here´s to 2013!

A Deadly Mix in Benghazi

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

But he said nothing; he had been silent during much of the evening, except now in this private club in Beverly Hills he seemed even more distant, staring out through the smoke and semidarkness into a large room beyond the bar where dozens of young couples sat huddled around small tables or twisted in the center of the floor to the clamorous

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information

Theft of US weapons in Libya involved
hundreds of guns, sources say
Fox News, by Adam Housley    Original Article
Posted By: LComStaff- 9/25/2013 12:24:32 PM     Post Reply
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But
