OK, so I tried to compose something different that was just as heartfelt and sincere as all the previous posts. But the posts before me say it all. This is the first site I check when I go to my computer and is always the last I check before turning in at night.

Our dogs are freaked out with the fireworks going on around the area. So I keep leaving and coming back. When I re-read what has been written already, I realize someone just said what I would have liked to have said.....So, I’ll just add my contribution to the table and thank you all for always being there.


I tossed most of 2 bricks of cream cheese in the blender.
Added about a cup of mayo and about a 1/2 cup of sliced
jalapeños from a jar ( I started with about 1/3 cup and added
a little more as I blended to taste).

I added about a Tablespoon of the jalapeño juice because it was
pretty thick and a little heavy cream too - I had some in the fridge
from Christmas...Maybe a 1/4 cup or so until it was the proper
thickness.

My husband tried it and thinks it tastes just like jalapeño poppers. The only thing I’d do differently is not make so much. I was just trying to use up things in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy it. Oh, there goes another fireworks BANG! There go the dogs,
headed downstairs....

Bless every one of you. Wishing you all the very best in 2013.

There´s never been a more vindictive, unsuitable person in the White House.
The good news there are at least one million
good citizens watching, or trying to watch his every dictatorial move. Bilary´s in bed with another even more evil than she is, and right now her life is on the line and she knows it and remembers Vince, Ron, all The Friends of Bill who died prematurely
over one hundred victims.
Lucianne, one of America´s finest fighters for truth and honesty, and the 24/7 superb news gathering and attitude pushing that you do like no other....the most serious, and soooo funny on top of it all. I love you

Happy New Year all you wonderful people. Lucianne and staff, thank you so much.
We opened our bottle of champagne and toasted along with Rio de Janeiro. No need to stay up late with Ryan Seacrest.

Big yellow dog is curled into a ball under the table. She DOES NOT like fireworks. There have been many days lately when I´ve wanted to do the same. This too shall pass; we only have +-1480 days to go...

We put our Army daughter on the plane yesterday and she is on her way back to Korea after spending two weeks leave with us so I´m feeling a little blue. Want to wish all of you, Lucianne, the staff, as well as all of the posters a very Happy New Year. As a New Year´s resolution, I encourage all of you to spend time in prayer every day for our country.

Wishing everyone here a wonderful New Year. Pray for our country. There are laws of nature that cannot be thwarted that will be coming into focus soon. Debts must be paid. You can´t print money indefinitely. So pay off your houses. Plant a garden. Keep your loved ones close. Pray. We will be ok.

Thanks to Lucianne for keeping me sane.

Happy New Year to one and all! Thank you Mrs. Lucianne and staff. What a terrific job you all do. Thank you for this great site. Right now I am still making the rounds, so many good friends already here to say hi to and hug, but please save me a spot at the bar. I haven´t had a drink since Nov. 6 and I need one after that shocker.
Little he is not in command, God is. Never give up hope.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year with all the very best of God´s peace and blessings.

Only about an hour left of this awful year, thank goodness.

So, let´s all lift our glass to Lucianne for providing this party for us, and to each other for being who we are.

Happy New Year friends!

Eagles Up and Happy New Year to All L-Dotters. Special 365 days a year thanks to the staff at Lucianne for keeping us all sane and heading in the right direction.

Been down so long that it looks like up, especially since Nov. 6th. Still, glad to see that the One dropped 5 points in approval rating this week. Begging people to attend the coronation also bespeaks a loss of glow for the annointed one. Hoping for millions more to have their eyes opened in 2013.

I want to say thank you Lucianne for giving us this site and The Connection. When my husband passed Sept. 2011, my friends on The Connection helped me through and prayed for my husband and family. Going into 2013, I´m hoping to start realizing a new normal and help my kids continue to heal.

My kids are watching a New Year´s Eve special this evening -- waiting for the ball to drop -- and every 5 minutes my son walks in to tell how inappropriately the ladies in there are dressed. Now he´s screaming at his sister to turn it off! Got to go!

Happy New Year LDot friends!

Hope everyone had a big family Christmas and continue with a happy New Year and a prosperous one. Forgive the typing - brain surgery did nothing good for my skill. I want to thank the best hostess of all time and the trouble and work put into this site. We all know who I am talking about. Love the fellow posters and look forward to their posts. I am not going to mention the O word or politics. I am crazy enough with that subject.
Love to all and let´s have a better year, this one was a doozy of face slaps to Republicans. My Posey cat is trying to get on my lap so I cannot type. She pretty much does as she pleases. Goodnight and will check for more posts later on.

If you are in a partying mood with friends, let me pass along my friend So. Africa friend Petr´s family recipe for holiday punch:

Fill you largest punch bowl to within 1/2" of the top with Kentucky sour mash bourbon.
Add 1 cup of your favorite fruit juice and several ice cubes.

Stir well. Repeat process if necessary.

CHEERS!

Echoing so many previous sentiments - thank to our lovely and gracious hostess, who I want to be like when I grow up, and her staff. Pinchem, what a marvelous New Year´s greeting! Photoonist, Hazymac, CAP marine, and others no longer here, we love and miss you.

There is so much over which to be discouraged. I am determined to not cave in. I think L.Dotters were somehow inoculated against Statism and the nasty germs that bring it on.

At least now the progs are starting to talk about the Constitution rather than simply pretending it doesn´t exist. The piece in the NYTimes today on scrapping it will be helpful to us in crafting counter arguments.

May God look with favor on his humble servants and hear our cries and prayers for this grand nation. Love to all and Happy New Year from Ramona (the Pest)

I, honestly, would like to thank everyone here. But I´ll start with the staff. I had several problems this year when Lucianne.com changed servers. I couldn´t access the site because I live outside the US, in the Philippines. I inquired and with no prodding or pleading on my part the staff stepped right up and fixed the problem. You girls and guys ( I mean men and women) didn’t have to do that. I appreciated it very much. Next I´d like to thank the article posters. You folks keep me and many American Ex-Pats around the world up to date on events in the land of my birth. I love the United States but I fear for the future. I will be moving all of my assets out of dollars this year because I despise Obama´s incompetence, blithe mendacity and unhinged narcissism. And finally I want to thank my fellow posters. I very much enjoy your views. I don´t always agree but it gives me a good idea as to how people in America, right now, see current events. Have a great "Year of the Snake" .

I´d like to add my very best wishes for a Happy, Healthy New Year, to Lucianne, Igor and all the faithful Staff.
And to all the brilliant Ldotters that post here. You feel like family...only likable. LOL!

I raise a glass to Lucianne and the staff for what they do and to my fellow posters for their wisdom and fortitude. I also miss Photoonist and Cap.

I was also in a dark place after the election. Took me a while to recover from the shock. (Here´s irony for you: I had predicted the electoral count 331-207. It was 332-206. Phenomenal guess, right? Except I had Romney winning.)

Over the years, some of you have asked me to put together a collection of my satire posts which appeared here and at Breitbart´s during my time as a contributor there. I´m working on it.

The tentative plan: an e book, $0.99, proceeds to be donated to lucianne.com. I´m figuring about 80-100 ´´columns,´´ with the material updated and revised. Target: spring.

Have purchased my ´´Publishing E-Books for Dummies´´ but haven´t cracked it yet. I said ´´tentative´´ earlier because I don´t know yet what difficulties might present themselves to cause me to drop the project: writer´s block, lack of experience in self-publishing, unforeseen obstacles/costs, so forth. Best laid plans, etc. We´ll see.

Happy New Year to Lucianne, Steadfast Staff, and fellow Ldotters from balmy Mat-Su Valley. Our mini Schnauzer, Natasha, has had two doggy downers and is still unsettled by the fireworks. My neighbors must have money to burn (literally), as they have been setting of fireworks yesterday evening and tonight for the past four hours.

I heard a strange noise a bit ago and thought the wind was blowing something about. It was a moose that´s been hanging around our backyard who was also agitated by the fireworks; sounded like a very large horse snorting. I don´t have enough doggy downers to help him and wouldn´t want to try and dose him either. I guess the dogs won´t be going outside for a while; they´ll just have to hold it a bit.
Dear Lucianne and Friends I haven´t forgotten the goodie box; just got delayed a bit.

Here´s an easy hot dip for you to try: Artichoke dip
8 oz. cream cheese (soft), 1/2 c. mayo, 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, 1 c. parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Combine in blender or processor. Bake at 350 about 15 minutes, till bubbly.
Enjoy and a blessed New Year to All.

Special New Years Gift.

Ms Lucianne may have a file of WRT´s somewhere, however, I have been collecting a few (25) WRT´s throughout the past 10 years and finally have them cataloged, zipped and online. You may peruse the list and feel free to download any you wish to read. With some of the older ones, it is sort of like walking through Memory Lane.

There are multiple pages in each WRT so I zipped them up to keep them together. You can use pkunzip or rar to open them to read. Enjoy

Happy New Year

My hope for 2013 is that we might return our country to that which was bequeathed to us by our forefathers. Their one fatal design flaw was in neglecting to give us term limits, so we must limit the terms ourselves if we are to save this great country.
This will necessitate the expulsion of all house and senate members who come up for election in 2014, with the exception of the few who stood by the Constitution and limited government in recent votes. We need to work in 2013 toward that end as we approach the 2014 elections. And yes, even my representative and yours need to go!

#159, Happy thought but not realistic. Think...let´s take the Senate that has majority of Democrats. If we threw out all those up for reelection in 2014 that means we lose all Republican Seniority and the Democrats will control the Senate until those die off and the newbees gain Seniority (in how many years?).

We may have to hold our tongue and keep some we may not care for but just remember, MAJORITY is what RULES in both the House and Senate.

Agreed that 2012 was annus horribilis, but even the rainy dawn of 1/1/13 brings promise. Thank you to all US Troops now serving to preserve the republic. God bless us everyone.

#161 Seniority has not been working for us. They just become infatuated with their own power. I am sick of the current system that results in 5 people telling the other 535 how to vote!!!! We have no representation under this system of power brokers. Our only hope is to clean house...and senate. Cut off the nose and the face.

Since the early dark days of the Clinton era, our gracious hostess has provided an intellectual refuge for conservatives; the coffee´s always on, somebody refilled the ice cube trays, the last guy remembers to wash the brandy snifters and reorder the Hennessey. No longer content to wait two weeks for the next National Review to leave our fingers stained with blue ink, we now huddle and stay warm by the glow of Ldot. May the discussions remain intellectually honest and in good humor and may the cherished wayward regulars come back in due course to where their ideas are valued and needed.
2014 cannot come soon enough.

From snowy, brisk, and coldly crisp northern Michigan comes sincere gratitude and loving best wishes for a happy, blessed, joyous, hope-filled New year to dearest Lucianne and staff; to each and every Lucianne.com poster, reader, and commenter; to every single member of our precious military, past and present - both home and away (and all the members of their families); to every person who works daily and tirelessly to serve and protect us; and to all those who strive with their words and their deeds to preserve this great nation as the land of the free and home of the brave.

There is a pitcher of mixed Mimosas, a tray of hot Bacon-Corn Griddle Cakes along with little browned sausages, a basket of Angel Biscuits, and a festive plate of Chocolate glazed Cherry Croissants at the end of the counter for anyone who may now be looking for a little food after last night’s festivities.

To all:
"May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace."
Numbers 6:24

#164...still wishful thinking and it would be ideal but it´s still fairyland. Remember the Senators have 6 year terms and are staggered over 3 election cycles.

I´d love to hear your plan to throw them all out in one fell swoop in one election. Do we then become the "dictators"?

Gosh, a lot of us must have hangovers - I expected to find 3 or four pages of threads from our friends in Lucianne Land. I am afraid that I cannot, went back to sleep and am completely disorientated now. Have a good day and wish I had a hangover but cannot drink my scotch or vodka martinis. With age comes medicines that do not allow it. Later

Happy 2013 New Year to Lucianne, her great team and to all LDotters present and past.

Count me in the group who can´t stomach TV news since the election. It´s old movies, reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond and the Animal Planet. Vowing to shop only the perimeter of the grocery store and stay healthy.

The Senate bill doesn´t raise taxes on the 400K crowd. Isn´t that what a U.S. President makes per year? How convenient.

Vowing to be debt free by the end of 2013 and stash some more cash. Stay strong, y´all and love your animals.

The NotaBenes were busy last night watching movies, eating, drinking and enjoying each other´s company. Our son taught us to watch Netflix streaming and has been a wonderful thing. Stopped watching TV on November 6.

We still cannot believe Romney will not be our next President and it is difficult to believe we have four more years of this pResident.

Thank you Lucianne for keeping this website going, we read the posts all the time to keep us sane, not posting much lately. We also love the connection, Yotty and Nu´s adventures, Rake King´s movie quizzes, book recommendations.

God bless all Ldotters, Ms. Lucianne and all of you that keep this website going and God bless this beautiful country.

Happy New Year to LDotters and Ms. Lucianne and staff! You are a big part of my day! Up late like everyone ushering in the new year, and side by side with a terrific win for Clemson in Chick-fil-a-bowl. Hubby, son and I will be walking on air for a while. They won in last few seconds with a 37 yard field goal. How sweet!
Pork roast in oven, with collards soaking, saffron rice and blackeyed peas all done, and hopping john in the works. We will eat up around 6 and toast our wonderful country. As someone said, we survived the civil war, War I and II, Korean and Vietnam Wars, so gut feeling is that O will not destroy us. Don´t believe that the biggest loser ever will last 4 more years, I believe he will be found out and resign, just my deep feelings. Prayers for a glorious new year and love to all the true Americans out there!

#167 If we fire enough of them the rest of them should start to listen to their voters more than their "leaders". The "leaders" are interested in only one thing - maintaining their power. They are only tapping the brakes lightly as we barrel toward the inevitable high speed collision.
I do not believe we can keep doing the same thing and get different results. When is John Galt going to show up?

Sorry to come in late here. Between cooking and celebrating with my family, I´ve been busy. I´m also thankful both my husband and I have jobs. Neither one is a job we thought we´d be doing at our ages, but both jobs are fun and interesting. More important, they keep us warm here in the Frozen North and put food on our table.

I´ve stopped wishing and praying for prosperity in the new year. Not that I´ve lost faith - I know He hears me. I´ll be grateful to God if my family just hangs on.

Happy New Year
I am so proud of my family as they continue to stride forward and the love they spread to each other.
Our College kids new and currant have been blessed with an extended family vow they will be able to continue to sop up all the education they can. They will not have to borrow or go hungry as family will be there with combined resources.
The younger children are filled with the joy of childhood without fears pressed onto them.
We follow the word of the Lord and place our lives in those cupped hands.
My wish for all of you is look back to the days when life was that simple and we will recover our honor.

I wish you all a healthy and better year than 2012! We will have a very difficult time trudging along for the next four years. And I don´t have high hopes anymore for the future of this once-great nation. Most of the voters are morons-and that includes most of my family and friends. I can´t believe how hard it is to try to make them understand what is going on in this country! So much worse than trying to teach those college freshman English courses at the beginning of my career!! And I thought those kids were dense! This forum is one of the few places I can find solace and like minds, and I thank God every day for Lucuianne, her staff, and all of you wonderful people. Keep praying.

Happy New Year to all these fine friends of many years.

Nice to see Sagman came back. Wish CapMarineTet68 and some of the others would as well.

Had a tough time with the election, hardly look at any tv, still listen to Rush but not his replacements;

Tough to see Obama´s snide smirk. Change channels immediately.

But I still start every day reading the posts on Lucianne.
Always nice to know what is going on.

This New Year intend to continue helping my family thrive in spite of these difficult circumstances.

Hope our Republican leaders begin to grow spines.

My Mom loves to watch the Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale - they have been having right now (on the SPEED channel) we are looking at mouth-watering cars that remind us of "the good old days" -

but then they have to have these ads for some really scary looking movie and we scramble to change the channel ASAP - don´t they know that watching these auctions is a form of escapism, of not wanting to watch the news or think about the 2012 election - but to go back in time - also, nice to see someone laying out a whole bunch of money to help support returning military and their families - so WHY do they need to have ads like this? We don´t even know what movie it is and shouldn´t they think that the people that want to watch the car auction are not the same people who want to watch these horrible movies - I just don´t get it.

And WHO ARE the people that want to go see movies like that? Mom and I think they are the ones who need to be "registered" - more so than gun owners!

Just getting this off my chest - thank you very much.

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

Theft of US weapons in Libya involved
hundreds of guns, sources say

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

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his
