Camp Topridge - A Great Playground

Meditation or climb the steeple and ring the bell.
How about some canoeing
Just like at home.
Some Russian somebody.
Carvings all over the place.
Relax in the sculpture field.
Guess why all the crows.
Spot faeries in the trees.
How about a creek running through your deck?
A couple of guests decide to try the zipline. Fun!
Perfect zipline form.

Fort Montgomery, Rouses Point, NY

Yes, we did go to visit Fort Montgomery during the "open house" a couple weeks ago. You can see a portion of the old civil war era fort as you cross the Rouses Point bridge towards Vermont. We never thought we'd actually get to walk withing the "walls" of the mostly dismanteled fort. You can learn much more about the fort here.

And, yes, the Fort and surrounding property is still for sale, if you happen to have 10 million dollars to invest.

Health Care Cost vs War Cost

Health care reform is predicted to cost as much as 1 trillion dollars over ten years. That's 100 billion dollars per year. How much have we spent on two wars so far.....912,341,987,178 since 2002. That's well over 100 billion dollars per year. So why can we afford to spend a 100 billion dollars per year on wars but not on health care?

ACORN et al.

Congress rightly passed a law, with bipartisan support, that blocks federal funds from any organization or company that has filed a fraudulent form with any State or Federal regulatory agency. That effectively stops Federal Funds from going to ACORN. Accidentally, it also blocks funds going to other companies - such as defense companies that have filed fraudulent claims to the government. Companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrup Grumman and General Dynamics, just to name a few.

Why is going after ACORN more important than going after companies on the POGO list?

Values Voter - Our Women More Beautiful

Values voter, Jason Mattera, at the Values Voter Summit:
“You know his daughter must have been beautiful because there’s no guy whose gonna die for an ugly girl,” Mattera chortled. “Our women are hot. We have Michelle Malkin. Who does the left have, Rachel Maddow? Sorry, I prefer that my women not look like dudes.”
Conservative women must be very proud.
