Update: Labor Day Vacation has come to an end ...

Photo: Well, a week's vacation seems to end all to quickly!  Photo is similar to the view from our lake-front cabin.  I hadn't had an actual "vacation" in almost 4 years, so words cannot truly express how wonderful a week swimming, boating, and spending time with family was so refreshing for me.  But, all good things come to an end; however, there are plans for next summer, so I can smile and now, get back to the business of taking back our country from Obama.  .... Always good to spend time away, but just as good to return home. :)

It will take a few days to get up to speed after being away this past week.  To describe my vacation in one word, I would say "refreshing"!  The photo (above) is similar to the scene directly across from our lake-view cabin.  With family and one young grandson, I had the most wonderful vacation experience and we took advantage of all the ammenities offered by the camping resort: swimming in a crystal clear lake; using the hot tub to relax these old muscles; boating and fishing; and at the days end, sitting by the camp fire roasting marshmallows.  In eight days, we only had one rainy evening; we were greeted each new day with the kiss of a bright sunny morning.  We've made plans to return to the camp site next July 2013.  

The cabin had cable TV and so, I did not miss the best speeches given during the NRC and if I had to choose just one speech, it would be difficult to choose.  However, to narrow it down, my favorites were the speeches given by Romney, VP candidate Ryan, Rubio, and of course, the guest speaker Clint Eastwood's direct and to the point - Obama's "empty chair".

While I swim through this week's news and commentaries, here's a video that sums up this so-called "war on women" in an interview with Michelle Malkin:

Mia Love, Susana Martinez, and Condoleeza Rice ALL all delivered breakout speeches at the recent Republican National Convention, yet the Liberal Left 'War on ''Conservative' Women continues in full force. Syndicated Columnist, NY Times #1 Best Selling Author, and CEO of, Michelle Malkin, offers her perspective on this ongoing issue with Fox and Friends. Also discussed: Clint Eastwood's speech is discussed, along with the reaction it caused on both sides of the political aisle.

My favorite painting entitled "Obamanation":

My favorite comment of the week, referring to Clint Eastwood's "The Chair":

"It doesn't talk, so it can't lie"

In closing, one more video entitled "The Poster":

Youth unemployment remains high, with 18-24 year olds facing unemployment over 15%. In a poll conducted by Crossroads Generation of 800 registered voters aged 18-29, only 22% said that they thought Obama had put into place policies that have made it easier for young people to find jobs. We can do better. Join us at
