    What the hell. The woman began walking even before the first truck came to a complete stop. Then proceeds to walk further into the street without looking. I hope she got ticketed.

    • MLCBLOG

      Maybe she was drunk. That would explain it. Or on drugs of some sort, or preoccupied mightily.

      You are correct. She started crossing before the first truck was stopped.

      PLUS, if you look at the traffic in the on coming lanes, where was she going to go? There was not a break in traffic coming the other direction until they stopped for the second truck.

          Sometimes we can be so heavenly minded we are no earthly good.

          I hope you will try not to be so perfect and also not to correct others so much but maybe look at yourself in case there is something that needs correcting.

            But far and away more often, people are earthly minded.

            Matthew 5:48 “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

            I do look at myself, MLCBlog and realize I am full of imperfections.

      Lovitz is ALSO a President >>>>

      Watch this from the Tonight Show http://youtu.be/pkYNBwCEeH4

      It looks as though Obama has been revealed

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      *BLEEP!* While he makes great points, we need to give language warnings for this kind of stuff. Glad my 11 year old wasn’t in here when I turned it on ;-)

      • Patriot077

        Ditto. Though I don’t have a child at home it was still very coarse for even my old ears.

      • MLCBLOG

        Just for the record, I agree.

    • GraceKnows

      Thanks for the clip, E. Lee!

      Jon Lovitz was my favorite SNL character. I didn’t know if he was still around, doing standup, movies, or what. I thought it was great, except for some of the language, and the kind of ignorant guy interviewing him. I’m sure most of the audience didn’t get it – thought that was part of the show or something.

      I’m glad that some in Hollywood aren’t afraid to speak the truth about Obama. I wonder if the Secret Service or FBI is going to investigate him now.

      Hey Mike >>>>>

      DID YOU KNOW ? ( I am sure you did!)

      That the US — had a WAR HORSE in Korea?

      True story, I never realized that the Marines in Korea had their own version of War Horse….

      Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoil-less rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars.

      But this horse did something more….during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 50 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers…without anyone leading her.

      Here is her story and photos to prove where she was and what she did….

      http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=YIo3ZfA9da0

      SEMPER FI! (takes on a new meaning with Sgt. Reckless

      WHAT A GREAT STORY! – (Please pass it around)

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        What a cool story! Thanks Joe!

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQI5D66OXO7X2FE4NVCZC7BAMA Joe

          This Mare was smarter than the woman above!

          Good thing she wasn’t carrying ammo!

      • MiketheMarine

        I’m impressed, Joe. I did know about Reckless, who has a statue at Camp Pendleton. Reckless would carry a load of ammo up the mountain to the troops and return carrying wounded. That horse make 50 round trips while being wounded twice and the best part is, Reckless did it all without a handler.

        That is one bad @$$ED Marine, horse or not.

        Semper Fi, indeed, Brother.

      • GreenBeretWay

        Great story Joe,All of your stories are interesting.Thank You

  • MaxineCA

    Here’s a great video by AFP CA. The Dept. of Interior will certainly destroy these ranchers that have property near the Klamath River. But with DOI’s plan to remove dams across America, it’s much larger than this example.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      OK. I live on the opposite side of the country, but this pi$$es me off to no end! These idiots in the government have always done more harm than good when it comes to co existance between nature and humans. The Kissimmee River in Florida comes to mind.
      Has the DOI in Cali never heard of salmon ladders?! Duh. This shows that they could care less about people who live in rural areas. This salmon is not a native, but even so there are other ways to do something other than destroying the dams, the electricity generated and the people who live and depend on that river.
      I get so mad here where I live- my husband’s family has lived on this little piece of land since the early 60’s. Now that all the land surrounding us has been taken over by the county for a preserve space, the FL. Wildlife management people come out here all the time to do whatever it is that they do (most times getting stuck in their big ol’ fancy Ford F 350s out in the middle of the pastures) but they act as if they know more about this land than the people who have lived here for generations. Does the government really believe that snotty nosed kids fresh out of university know more about the habitats than those people who have lived there? Do they believe they care more about the land than those who have lived on it?

      Sorry Maxine, this really gets my hair in a knot no matter if it’s California, Florida, Alaska or Texas. It’s a pathetic abuse of power by another bloated big arm of government using our tax money to work against us.

      Thanks for posting it.

      • MaxineCA

        Sorry, ABC, I didn’t mean to upset you. I’m outraged as well but the story doesn’t seem to be getting coverage. Did you notice she mentioned Agenda 21 at the end? They totally destroyed Central CA farms a few years ago, by controlling (shutting off their water). When you think about all of the regulations they have passed it’s enough to make one’s head explode!

    • GreenBeretWay

      I’m sure you have heard about this in the central valley.IDIOTS.

      • MaxineCA

        Oh yeah. It was so sad to see it happen. Thank you Obama, Salazar and Pelosi. First they ruin CA, and if it works here….. they expand their over reach into every other part of the country, by whatever means.

        To add insult to injury, there were so many unemployed people as a result (40,000-80,000), when they went to the food banks the boxes of food said “imported from China”. At the end of that clip you posted, there are several more clips that folks who are not aware of what happened, should view.

      • freenca

        “we will import all of our food.” Nancy Pelosi actually said that in response to questioning about the manufactured water shortage.

    Okay, open thread time. This Secret Service issue with hookers has been bugging me for some time now. Time to get one more conspiracy theory off my chest.

    First, we know Obama has hidden most his college records from us and did drugs back then. Secondly, on his birthday, Michelle and kids go to Spain while Barry went to Chicago. Thirdly, Obama disappears for several hours from the media, later we are told that he went to a daughter’s soccer game (with some curiously photo-shopped looking photos). And lastly, but not leastly, Barry and Michelle take seperate flights to vacation in Hawaii.

    This all leads to the Colombian visit, where Secret Service members are being accused of getting and using hookers. My suspicion leads me to think that the Secret Service was getting those hookers for Obama, and getting caught, merely took the fall. All these incidents make me think Obama is doing things that are, shall we say, illegal and/or immoral. Does anyone have any more suspicious incidents of Obama that just doesn’t ring true? I’m curious.

    End of conspiracy theory. Just had to get it out there before the breaking news.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      “Does anyone have any more suspicious incidents of Obama that just doesn’t ring true? I’m curious” Nukefriend.

      Scoop would ban me permanently from his site if I commented on everything. The comment page would be about a mile long.

      What I’d like to know is with these secret service guys (and your theory sounds quite plausable!) he says, “let the investigation take it’s course, I will not get involved” (or something to that effect) but yet, a kid gets killed in Florida (how rare is that?) and he’s got to send in the DOJ and all his investigators. Hmmmmm. sorry hit the reply before I was ready. Which of these two cases does dear leader get more benefit from?

    • StandingGround

      You know how it is – when people try to perpetually hide things from us or refuse to give reasonable answers to reasonable questions, we tend to let our imaginations run wild as we fill in the blanks for ourselves.

      In BO’s case, I don’t think our imaginations could come up with worse things than what have probably gone on in this imposter’s life. I never thought of tying these things together but you could be as right as rain. Good a theory as any, I say!

    • GreenBeretWay

      Doubt they were getting hookers for O,they were females.I think the dear leader is a little light in the shoes.

      • Nukeman60

        Doh! Okay, only one conspiracy theory at a time, please. I have a hard time keeping up.

    • GreenBeretWay

      The real story.O was cleaning house.He only wants the loyalist around him.Loyal to him.It was a set up and the boys took the bait by hooking up with hookers.

    This woman seemed to be a little annoyed that the truck got in her way.

    In grade school, one of my best friends was hit by a car, in the same spot, two years in row. He wasn’t hurt…much. the first time he was so scared he ran home. The second time he picked himself up and walked the rest of the the way to school. He lost a lot of fear that after that.
