    You’re early with this, this year Steve!

    OK, I’ll start…
    It’s been a bitch of a year hasn’t it? There has been lots of bad news and very little good news. I guess we’ve all been there before but that doesn’t make things any better.
    Still, we’ve got this little corner of the internet – the house that Steve built- where we can gather and cry in our beer together. Maybe pass on some information that others didn’t know about. Maybe -hopefully- come up with some comment that results in a smile or a good old fashioned snort amongst the membership here.
    Maybe make a friend or two – I’ve sure lucked out in that regard here.
    It ain’t always pretty and it’s seldom politically correct, but for all that, it’s still a nice place to spend an hour or so and commiserate with like-minded folks.

    Steve, for the fifth time (five Christmases??? Wow!) thank you for your time and effort in keeping this place running!

    I wish everyone here a merry Christmas and all the very best in the new year.

    And if you’re in uniform and in a bad place far from home…please…Dear God please come back safe and sound.

    God bless.

    Hey – Last year when my Dad passed away, I posted my eulogy to him on S&L. You guys really made my day. Like me, you appreciate the sacrifice & values of the “Greatest Generation.” So, my Mom moved on the other day & hope you don’t mind me posting my words about her life. I apologize if you feel it inappropriate, but thank you for your understanding.

    I SUPPOSE no one remembers August 9, 1974. It was the day Richard Nixon resigned as President. Now what in the world does Richard Nixon have to do with my mother (aside from her voting for him three times)? Well, I’m gonna tell you.

    It was early afternoon & the networks – all three of them – were broadcasting from the White House. I was home & my Mom asked me to watch it with her.

    If you recall, the President rambled & was mostly incoherent. Then, at once he stopped – paused & muttered,

    “My Mother Was a Saint.”

    I thought that kind of weird. Here is the most powerful man on earth – broken & humiliated before the entire world – while his enemies leered & cheered & the guy stops to remember his mother?!

    I thought he had it coming. But then – I look over at my mother AND SHE’S CRYING.

    SHE FEELS SORRY FOR THE GUY!!

    I haven’t thought about that day until just last week while I reflected on my mother. And you know what I came up with?

    If Richard Nixon’s mother is a saint, THEN BY GOD, MY MOM IS TOO!!!

    She was born in Bremerhaven Germany in 1920. Her father having survived Verdun with valor & insight into war’s hell knew his family would not survive in that broken country, much less another war.

    In 1929, they sailed across the Atlantic surviving what was called the worst storm in the North Atlantic in centuries. They settled in Hoboken. With no friends, my mother collected every kind of animal she could. As an immigrant little girl who spoke little English, they were her only friends.

    My mother was a great friend to animals. I know because years later, whenever there was a Cowboy & Indian Picture on TV…My Mother Would Root For The Horses!

    CERTAINLY, MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!!

    When she was 19 years old, she went to a YMCA dance & met a not so shy guy a few years older than her.

    As the story goes, this wise guy kept dancing her under the mistletoe trying to steal a kiss by bending her back over a table. While trying to keep her skirt properly below the knee, she politely spurned his advances.

    My father years later confessed, “I couldn’t understand why she didn’t want to kiss; All the Other Girls Kissed!”

    Afterwards, Prince Charming offered, “Come on, I’ll walk you home.” When he found out she lived a hundred blocks north….He Walked Her to the Subway Instead!

    And She Still Went Out with Him Again. They Married, were together through a depression, A World War, had four nominally normal kids & truly Became One as the Bible teaches.

    AND FOR THAT, MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    When my sister came down with polio, my mother made sure she got the best of care. Linda was provided a level of physical therapy that was unheard of then & today, you would never know my big sis ever suffered from such a disease.

    MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    With two young children in tow, my father took the family to Mexico. When they arrived at the border, the Mexican authorities wanted to administer several “vaccination shots” to the two little ones – for a fee of course. Their mother refused – Absolutely. Finally, after much arguing, the Federalies declared,

    “Well then we will give them to you instead – one for each kid!”

    And they did. My father paid the fee & they were on their way with one sore & sickened mother & wife.

    MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    I was born in 1957. As legend has it, I was the biggest kid born at that hospital in 2 ½ years….

    My brother was born ten years earlier AND HE WAS EVEN BIGGER.

    LADIES WILL AGREE MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    While other kids’ bedtime stories were a steady diet of Seuss & Disney, my little brother & I were entertained with John Bunyan’s bedtime delight from 1678 “Pilgrim’s Progress”.

    THAT’S RIGHT, MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    Years later, at 17, I came home from school & right on schedule went up stairs to take a nap after an exhausting day of fooling the high school faculty that I was learning something.

    Just half under, I heard my mother scream.

    “Great! Now What?!”

    As I opened my bedroom door, I saw the reflection of flames off the walls. I don’t recall touching a step, but I turned the corner into the kitchen, there was my mother shoving a kettle of flaming lard into the sink. Some of it splashed back coating her arm – burning it to the third degree.

    The flames went out & the next thing I know I’m holding her on the couch – just holder – as she cried out in excruciating agony – her layers of skin pulled back from her finger tips to her elbow.

    The good part was at 17, I felt obliged to break every traffic law possible to get my mother to the hospital. We arrived at the Emergency Room Entrance. I checked her in & was told to wait.

    And so, we waited….and waited. After over an hour, I turned to her & asked, “Does it hurt, Ma?”

    She just looked at me, smiled slightly and said, calmly, “Oh Yes.”

    MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    From where she came – through all she went through, my mother loved God & believed that Jesus was & is her friend & Savior.

    Sometimes, she had a peculiar way of witnessing to her children. One time when I was probably how you say, in “rebellion”, my mother turned to me & with a certain quiet sternness said, “You know I prayed that the Lord keep you restless until the day you accept Him as your Lord & Savior.”

    “Gee, thanks, Mom. How about a scourge while you’re at t?” I thought – but didn’t dare say anything.

    NEVER THE LESS, MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    But I have to admit, my Mom’s prayer was answered. About ten years ago, while my folks were over, I mentioned, “Hey, I’m thinkin’ maybe we should move to California.”

    Mom only said, “Oh please, don’t do that.” I’m not sure why that was the end of it, but here we are & looking back on the years of caring for our aging parent, I know now exactly why my mother admonished me over such a thing.

    It hasn’t been easy. Sometime is was heartbreaking. Other times, absolutely hilarious. Some people wonder what kind of God allows the ravages of blindness, dementia & illness that advanced aging can bring. Why does it have to be so helplessly sad?

    But when you think about it, what does it take to make someone helpless’ day? A little humor, a hug & a kiss, a little time spent just holding hands, saying “I love ya Ma!”

    To tell you the truth, in spite of all the trips to the doctors, the Christmas Eves in ER, talking care workers out of quitting & the utter hopelessness of dementia, I would not have missed these last years with my mother…and father for anything.

    For me, these were the last great lessons a mother could teach her son!

    AND FOR THAT I KNOW MY MOTHER WAS A SAINT!

    The day our Mom passed away, I came home & planned to do what I often do, get into our hot tub & watch the night overtake the evening sky. This night, I thought better of my usual beer or gin & tonic; instead opted for some bottled water.

    As I leaned back in the warm water with the jets going, I looked up as I always do. Most times, I replay the day, think of tomorrow, worry or just say a prayer. But this night I thought…

    “Well, if there’s something you’d like to say, I’m listening.”

    “Anything you want to show me to let me know you’re there?”

    As I looked up I saw a very faint star seeming to move. Perhaps I was wrong so I tracked it using the other stars to measure its position & yes, it was moving. It was a satellite higher up than I’ve ever seen one before with sunlight reflecting off its fuselage.

    In half a minute, it disappeared. And I thought. “Well, that was nice. But it was after all a Man Made Object.”

    Just then, from due east to west a fireball; a fireball as big but brighter than my neighbor’s porch light appeared dead center where I was looking with a big long tail blazing in orange & red plasma streaking behind it.

    Like a vapor, it vanished in just a few seconds.

    “WOW!” In all my years looking at the skies through telescopes, binoculars or just looking up, I have only seen one such thing. It is a rare thing as can be.

    And I thought to myself, “Well, that certainly was not of this world. Imagine That!”

    Now, as a Lutheran, I know that was NOT MOM sending me a message from Heaven. But, since there is no such thing as Random in a Loving God’s Universe…

    And Being That I Did Ask In The First Place!!

    I knew it was put there at that moment, in that place to tell me….

    Your Mother IS a Saint!

    Thank you & don’t forget. Call you mother.

      Guard duty…..walking post on a fence line in Iceland.

      RB……..God Bless you!
      You said all of those things about your mom soooo eloquently and with fore thought.

      May God Bless you and your family this Christmas.
      Your Mom and Dad are dancing under the mistletoe (sneaking kisses) in heaven!

    • ptat says:

      what did we do to deserve such eloquence?! thanks, brother!

    • proreason says:

      Sorry for your loss RB, but there can’t be a prouder Mom in heaven than yours after your loving eulogy.

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      Because of a “chronic shortage of time” these days, I don’t get to get here as often as I used to and want to. I’m glad I “got here” today .. and want to Thank You, RB, for your wonderful tribute to your Mom!

      Both my folks moved on early in life; so I have a sincere empathy for the loss of one’s parents whenever and however it happens.

      God Bless you and yours’ especially this Christmas season – enjoy some of the shooting stars!!!

      And yes .. thanks for the reminder .. I’ll be sure to “call” my Mom (and Dad) again this Christmas and watch for their stars, too!

    • jobeth says:

      RB, Like the others I am sorry your wonderful mother is no longer on this earth, however, she still lives…as only saints can.

      She lives within your own ability to share the joys and gifts she gave to you and your family…and now to us. Your mom truly WAS a saint.

      My own personal saint was my grandmother who never had to raise her voice. There was something about her that just made you want to please her. And to please her all she wanted was that you love God and please Him. I had the privilege to live with her…in California…for a year and a half where I learned more about right and wrong and Christian decency than most people have the privilege to learn in their whole lives though her.

      So I understand your deep love and appreciation for this special woman…a true saint. My Grandma joins your mother in this special place in God’s order.

      We are blessed to have them and their life lessons live on within us and through us.

      Thank you for sharing such an appropriate story at this time. It’s something that I will take with me. So your mom lives on even still through those of us who learned of her. What a blessing she is.

      I wish all a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful HOLY Day. I also pray for each of you to have a blessed and safe New Year.

      I feel like I have a whole group of very good friends though we have never met in person. I know your hearts and for that I am grateful.

      Thanks to you all. You have steadied me when I felt like quitting and gave me hope when the politicians of our beloved Country have faltered.

      I know you all join me in prayer (for those of you who know our God) and good wishes for our deeply loved country and for our men and women who are willing to give their very lives to give us the freedoms we enjoy at the moment.

      And to Steve…I know you understand how important your work on this page is…but I doubt if you will ever know the depth of appreciation we bloggers feel. Without this site, there are so many things we would have never even known about. Without this site many of us would be so isolated in our thoughts and fears and hopes for this country.
      A very special Christmas Blessing to you and yours. You are a true patriot and as Hannity would say…”a Great American”. Truly

      Love you all….

    • Reality Bytes says:

      GROUP HUG!!! Thanks folks – I had a feeling many of you would have similar feelings – that’s why I shared my sentiments on my Mom. Yes! There will be more than one RBTini hoisted during this Christmas Day Toast (perhaps a nice Arturo Fuente Maduro too).

      Merry Christmas Everyone & to Steve, Ann, Rush, The Great One et al – Thank you for standing up for we Americans. Remember Washington surprised the Red Coats on Christmas Eve & a nation was born.

      How far we’ve fallen…How far we’ve fallen.

      There’s much work to be done. God’s Work!

    • catie says:

      RB, I’m sorry for your loss. God Bless.

    • wardmama4 says:

      Beautiful words RB. I have been all over the emotional map with my mother – and the struggle has left me a much better Christian. As she is approaching the end of her life, as the two siblings who stepped up to care for her are now dead, I (the youngest of five – yes, there are two who won’t even call her) am the one there at the end.

      I just sent her a picture of my oldest son with his newest child (we are going down Saturday to visit, as he is deploying next month to Afghanistan – and of course to see that new granddaughter) – her 16th/17th great grandchild – oh, our family – one was given up for adoption.

      Tuesday (22nd) our 3rd child William would have been 25, Tomorrow Christmas will be the 25th anniversary of his death – It took us years of comfort and prayers to find joy and happiness on Christmas again.

      And that is what the true meaning of Christmas is about – that in all things we will find faith, hope and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

      May your Christmas be filled with Faith, Hope and most of all Love.

      And thank you Steve for this place to unload our anger before the sun sets on it!

    • I hope you have a lot of kids.. Merry Christmas.

    Any year fighting for loved ones, life, liberty & freedom is a good year indeed. Merry Christmas SG & to all S&L’rs where ever you are.

    PS: – Didn’t know St. Nick was Italian (either that or he traded his sleigh for a gondola – that’s Venice in the pic – I do believe right outside Harry’s Bar – where yes, they do make a proper RBtini).

  4. BillK says:

    Merry Christmas to you too, Steve.

    As bad a mood as I’ve been in of late, I can’t imagine what it would be like not to have a place like this to vent or to post articles proving just how biased and agenda driven our media is today.

    Perhaps if Steve is single Santa will recognize his good deeds and leave him a nice gift under the tree. (Four words: Ann Coulter. La Perla. :D :D)

    (If he’s not single, I suspect his SO or spouse wouldn’t approve of that, so perhaps just the La Perla part. ;-))

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      Wow, Bill!!!

      I’m single. I’d go for Ann!

      Gosh .. the tune “All I Want for Christmas ..” all of a sudden is playing in my head. Go figger …

    • wardmama4 says:

      I’m married but I do think I could go for a guy who would buy La Perla (as this lil ole poor wimin folk, hears it is a mite expensive)!

      Truly I do think that my dear and perfect hubby would buy it, if I would wear it – so that is the rub – my Victoria’s Secret body went out with the 4th (or was it the 5th) baby!

    • jobeth says:

      Wardmama…I wouldn’t worry about your body not being what it used to be. Your heart and head sound perfect… :-D Besides I’m bettin’ Mr Wardmama thinks your girlish figure IS perfect ! *grin

      We women tend to lose our girlish figures but in return we get something more precious to our guys. A little wisdom that comes with maturity. A heart that is developed though the ups and downs of life and a faith in God that comes with it all.

      AND a love for our men that ignore most of their imperfections and an appreciation they overlook some of ours.

      I’m the mom of 5 myself…so we share a few things there.

      We are sooo blessed for so many reasons …Thanks for sharing!

      Our country is so vast so we may never meet each other but I for one feel like I have a wonderful group of close friends that have shown their care for each other as we falter in our hopes for our country. Today’s tech has given us something our parents and grandparents couldn’t even conceive of.

      After deep reflections tonight and church services…lets go celebrate our Lord’s Birthday!

      Merry Christmas Y’all

  5. Rusty Shackleford says:

    To Steve and all the S & L’ers.

    Thanks for letting me join in and gain perhaps the best education I have had in decades when it comes to the political situation. It was a breath of fresh air for me to find this site and be allowed to participate. I think it has done a world of good by keeping the truth true and the facts factual. I abandoned the beat of the MSM drum years ago and had hoped for something that would fill the gap that has been replaced with useless information. However, this site makes much better use of that information by turning it on itself and identifying it for the garbage that it is. For me, that’s the whole point.

    But finally, I wish everyone here, and on all the Earth a peaceful Christmas, a marvelous and happy New Year and that things will work out for the good for all of us.

  6. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Merry Christmas to you SG, and everyone else. It’s been one roller coaster of a year watching the Left at the helm and running the ship into the rocks. Here’s to a better year for all. May 2010 and 2012 shake off the coils of voter apathy so we can purge the evil from the land.

  7. tranquil.night says:

    Merry Christmas Steve and all the worker bees!

    When the Libs said that 2009 was going to be a historic year, man I had no idea. Now I’ve never felt closer to all those historical knights and had a clearer understanding of what they stood for. To see the miracle of the tea party movements, to the miracle of what that anonymous hacker did with ClimateGate to Dopenhagen, I am a 100% believer now in the presence of a force of the truth; physically and metaphysically.

    This year I am most grateful to have found my way into “Steve’s Hive.” As we all know, Rush is show prep for the rest of the media but SG is seriously show prep for Rush. :)

  8. proreason says:

    S&L is the gift that keeps on giving.

    2010 will be the year when the tide of hatred, corruption, greed and marxism begins to be reversed.

    Next year will be a much more Merry Christmas for us and for the country. We will have the majority in the House, and close to a majority in the Senate. The Moron’s approval ratings will be the historical low of all time. And if we are very very lucky, he will have a mental breakdown because his massive ego won’t be able to deal with overwhelming rejection of everything he stands for.

  9. MinnesotaRush says:

    Merry Christmas to you, Steve! Many, many Thanks to you for having this wonderful site .. truly a vehicle for staying informed, being educated, and being able to visit with other real patriots! My travels are better ‘cuz your here!

    Merry Christmas and heaps of God’s grace and blessings to all of you S&L’rs (and yours)! Thanks for your sharing and support. You’re a terrific bunch!

    And special wishes and greetings for all the veterans here (I know there are many) .. as well as thanks for our collective thoughts and prayers for all the good men and women serving our Country currently!

    God Bless America!!! God Bless Our Troops!!!

    Merry Christmas, all!!!

  10. mr_bill says:

    “To the American People: Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.”
    ~ Calvin Coolidge

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holy-Days all.

    A very special Merry Christmas to those currently serving in our military as well as our veterans, thank you all. May the new year bless us all with the Light of Freedom and Blessings of Liberty which you all so valiantly defend, God be with you.

    Mr. Gilbert, thank you for S&L.

    It ain’t easy, it ain’t cheap but you’re point for us, and we do know that, and care very much that S&L continues.

    “I’ve been lied to by just about every part of every culture and every form of religion and most certainly every government, but one thing rungs true, and continues to ring true to this day … good men and women who will not settle for anything less than their Freedom and Honor.” – (anon)

    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year.

    Despite the damage inflicted upon the foundation of our country this past year by the liberals – we can take heart that we are still a free people and we will put our country back on track in historic fashion in 2010.

    Remember to stuff Steve’s S&L stocking this Christmas. He has definately earned it.

    Now that I think about it, an Ann Coulter riff on “Santa Baby” would be just about perfect.

    “A Different Christmas Poem”

    The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
    I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
    My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
    My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.
    Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
    Transforming the yard to a winter delight.

    The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
    Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.
    My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
    Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.
    In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
    So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

    The sound wasn’t loud, and it wasn’t too near,
    But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear..
    Perhaps just a cough, I didn’t quite know, Then the
    sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.
    My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
    And I crept to the door just to see who was near.

    Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
    A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.
    A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
    Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
    Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
    Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

    “What are you doing?” I asked without fear,
    “Come in this moment, it’s freezing out here!
    Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
    You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!”
    For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
    Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..

    To the window that danced with a warm fire’s light
    Then he sighed and he said “Its really all right,
    I’m out here by choice. I’m here every night.”
    “It’s my duty to stand at the front of the line,
    That separates you from the darkest of times.

    No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
    I’m proud to stand here like my fathers before me.
    My Gramps died at ‘ Pearl on a day in December,”
    Then he sighed, “That’s a Christmas ‘Gram always remembers.”
    My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ‘ Nam ‘,
    And now it is my turn and so, here I am.

    I’ve not seen my own son in more than a while,
    But my wife sends me pictures, he’s sure got her smile.
    Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
    The red, white, and blue… an American flag.
    I can live through the cold and the being alone,
    Away from my family, my house and my home.

    I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
    I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
    I can carry the weight of killing another,
    Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..
    Who stand at the front against any and all,
    To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall..”

    ” So go back inside,” he said, “harbor no fright,
    Your family is waiting and I’ll be all right.”
    “But isn’t there something I can do, at the least,
    “Give you money,” I asked, “or prepare you a feast?
    It seems all too little for all that you’ve done,
    For being away from your wife and your son.”

    Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
    “Just tell us you love us, and never forget.
    To fight for our rights back at home while we’re gone,
    To stand your own watch, no matter how long.
    For when we come home, either standing or dead,
    To know you remember we fought and we bled.
    Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
    That we mattered to you as you mattered to us.”

    Merry Christmas to the S&L family and God Bless our Troops

    Merry Christmas everyone!! JoBeth, we know what it would be like to have a socialized country like the UK – so we should never give up, fight on! Thanks Steve, for this site – it’s a breath of fresh air after being bombarded daily by the MSM.

  21. Conservatus says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone here! This is my favorite site on the internet.

    I see things posted here days, even weeks before they get reported elsewhere — if ever.

    I know it must be a hellavu lot of work. But there are thousands of us out here who might not post many comments — but we really do appreciate it.

    A very warm and heart felt Merry Christmas to all at S & L where words shared often offer sanity, humor, and hope in these dark times for America. May God continue to bless us and keep our troops safe.

    Merry Christmas to all of my fellow S&L’rs. I’ve been extremely busy lately and haven’t visited as often as I used to. I’m so appreciative that this bastion of sanity exists even if I can’t visit as often as I used to. God bless America because she needs it now.

    Thank you all for keeping me sane this year. I first found Sweet n Light pursuing news that disappeared off the internet.
    Sweetness and Light has blessed my Christmas Day. I know I’m not much good at spreading cheer, but I do find it here, where lemon-aid is made from lemons sweetened with honey. God bless ya all, and God bless the USA & and stand tall.
