The Lady Don’t Mind



The Good Lady of Nohant

Last time she jumped out the window, well, she only turned and
smiled. You might think she would say something, but you’d have to
wait a while.

Well the lady don’t mind.
No, no, no, the lady don’t mind
She just turns her head and disappears and
I kinda like that style

Little boat that floats on a river, it’s drifting through a haze
She floats by whenever she wants to, well, there she goes again

Well, it’s no trouble at all.
No, no, no trouble at all
Well, what she does
is all right with me, and
I kinda like that style

Come on. come on. I go up and down.
I like this curious feeling. I know, I see.
It’s like make believe. Cover your ears
so you can’t hear what I’m saying.
I’m not lost but I don’t know
Where I am. I got a question.
All right. All right. This is what we like.
Who knows, who knows,
What I am thinking

She says love is not what she’s after,
but everybody knows.
Each time she looks in the mirror well,
she lets her feelings show.

Well, the lady don’t mind
No, no, no, the lady don’t mind.
she just turns around and dissappears,
I kinda like that style

Uh-oh. Uh-oh. Here we go again
I don’t know, I don’t know,
What I’m sayin’.
Hey man. Hey man.
I sure don’t feel the same
She likes to say what she’s feeling
Hey. Did I get a big surprise.
I know you think so.
Come on. Come on. She says anything.
Who knows, who knows,
what she’s thinking.

Uh-oh, uh-oh
Uh-oh, uh-oh
Uh-oh, uh-oh ….

    Sure has been quiet ’round here as of late. Me? I’m painting my kitchen/dining room in a lovely shade of, Tropical Mango! Mmmmmmm. I hate prep work!
    Am also keeping up with the latest and just waiting for the other shoe to drop. The Usurper in Chief continues to embarrass and infuriate me, simultaneously.
    I am reading that his THUGS continue to farm or mine (whatever) email addys as they try to destroy Sinclair’s, Becks and other websites which are trying to keep the truth “out there”.

    I appreciate that the conversation has been taking place on shows like Hannity and of course, Beck’s re; the NWO, IMR and the eventual (total) takeover of our financial system.
    Oh and did anyone see this?

    So that’s what ‘s up with me. Not that anyone asked…………..:)

    I’m in deep mourning for a dear friend whose adorable, sweet 4 yr. old dog (which I consider as one of my own) will be put down on Friday morning. She’s lost the use of both back legs, has just been diagnosed with cancer, and has no hope for recovery. Yet to see her, she’s the same adorable sweet girl who just can’t get up. It’s a horrible death watch and long goodbye that is breaking our hearts.

    Still lurking every day – just not worth much to the conversation for now.

    JAC – I saw yesterday that Dr. Bob Basso is scheduled to be at the Tea Party in Indianapolis. I’m sure he will be a huge draw and a wonderful addition to the event.

    We’re going to Denver – anyone else going to a Tea Party?

    Check out how many are on the schedule now!,-96.679687&spn=27.495109,57.128906&z=4&source=embed

    I am helping organize one right here in my City 🙂

  7. j.b. Says:
    And on it goes……..

    *sorry to hear about your friends dog, katie. So young!*

    I, too, plan to attend a Tea Party at our Capitol in Lansing, MI. Adult children (2, possibly 3) in tow! Can’t wait. I feel the momentum building and think this is going to be HUGE, ALL ACROSS OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!

  8. hockeyfan530 Says:

    I’m going to the St Louis tea party. I’m listening to one of the organizers and it sounds like it’s going to be pretty big. Music and speakers. Hope it’s huge

  9. Katie Says:

    Thanks, j.b. – this is so painful and difficult. I visited the pup yesterday and she looks and acts so normal. It’s one thing to put down an old, sickly dog who is in pain. She just looks so normal, tail wagging, nose kisses…man, it’s hard. I can’t stop crying.

  10. Katie Says:

    On a positive note, a week or so ago I sent an email to suggesting they put a counter icon on their home page to show how many Tea Parties are registered – the media’s descriptions of “dozens” of Tea Parties isn’t exactly accurate (shocking, I know…)

    This morning I got this personal reply:

    “We are over 300 now, with probably another 100 sitting in my inbox. Hard to say. They are honestly coming in too fast to post. Sorry!”

  11. NEConservative Says:

    I’ll be attending the Tea Party in Lincoln, Nebraska. It’s on April 11th.

  12. Tucker82254 Says:

    My family and my sister’s family will be attending the Tax Day Tea Party in Atlanta, GA. Sean Hannity is going to be there and will be broadcasting live. We’re ready and excited. LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!!

  13. Tucker82254 Says:

    Oh, and, last time I checked we had over 3,000 committed to attend just on Facebook alone. Woo Hoo!!!

    In case you’ve been following Senate Floor coverage on CSPAN2

    Divisive Legislative Tool Gaining Democrats’ Favor

    Health-Care Reconciliation May Be Option

    The House reconciliation language would allow lawmakers to bundle into a single bill all facets of health-care reform, combining the coverage initiatives that President Obama has advocated with the tax increases and spending cuts needed to offset the program’s high costs.

    The rule also would protect the legislation from a Republican filibuster, allowing what is perhaps the most ambitious domestic policy bill Congress has considered in years to pass the Senate with 51 votes.

    But Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), a moderate Republican, warned that adopting reconciliation would be “a colossal mistake.” Democrats remain two votes short of a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority in the Senate, and Specter is a key swing vote.

    “There are those of us on this side of the aisle who have cooperated” Specter said. “I think it fair to say that to misuse the reconciliation process would be a very strong blow against bipartisanship and cooperation.

    Obviously, it would impede future activity by the Obama administration in reaching across the aisle to get necessary Republican votes.”

  16. rosettasister Says:

    Fast-track budget tool would kill bipartisanship, GOP says

    A congressional tactic described as a “freight train” to run over the minority party could derail any hopes of bipartisanship with the Obama administration, some Republicans warn.

    “Reconciliation” is a procedure that could put some of President Obama’s major initiatives, such as overhauling health care, on the fast track to becoming law if lawmakers adopt it in their budget resolution.

    The process would allow senators to cut off debate on some legislation with 51 votes — a simple majority — instead of the 60 usually required.

    Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics

    The reconciliation process can be used to help the president move swiftly on his platform, but he’ll be burning bridges along the way, Sabato said.

    “Essentially, reconciliation is a freight train in which you pour all the coal into the fire and it steams ahead unstoppably, but there’s a cost to that. You own everything, and you cause hard feelings that can last,” he said.

    As evidenced by the stimulus bill, every vote counts. The fate of Obama’s stimulus package rested in the hands of three moderate Republicans, who broke ranks to support it after round-the-clock negotiations by Democrats.

    The administration, Sabato said, now owes it to those senators — Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine — because they’ve been dogged by their own party ever since.

    “Good will can be a bankable commodity,” Sabato said. “Most Republicans are never going to offer him good will, but he needs that slice of Republicans who will. It may be a small slice, but they can be critical.”

    The President Is ‘Keeping Score’

    Chicago politics has moved into the White House.


    Members of Congress should also worry about how Mr. Obama is “keeping score.” He is steeped in the ways of Chicago politics and has not forgotten his training in the methods once used by Saul Alinsky, the radical Chicago community organizer.

    Alinsky’s 1971 book, “Rules for Radicals,” is a favorite of the Obamas. Michele Obama quoted it at the Democratic Convention. One Alinsky tactic is to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” That’s what the White House did in targeting Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santelli and Jim Cramer. (The president’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, went so far as to lash all three from the White House press podium.) It may also explain Mr. Obama’s comments to Mr. DeFazio.

    After all, Alinsky’s first rule of “power tactics” is “power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” Team Obama wants to remind its adversaries it has plenty of power, and it does. The question is whether the White House will wield it responsibly. The jury is still out, but certain clues are beginning to emerge. “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” even if said with a wink and a smile, isn’t quite the “new politics” we were told to expect.

    Karl Rove accuses Obama White House of ‘ethical problems’

  28. rosettasister Says:

    Mark Levin (at approx. 5:45)

    “The government is so gluttonous that it’s stealing the money from future generations in order to pay for benefits today.

    It’s going to make us poor. And I suspect that’s exactly what Obama and the statists want because … “

    (Here Sean Hannity didn’t let Mark finish his thought. Geez, Sean!)

    So Mark Levin agrees with Karl Rove that Obama is crippling our economy on purpose.

    And our elected representatives are enabling Obama to do just that.

    From Veronique de Rugy (I really like her reporting. She’s been very good on the deficit debacle.)

    New Accounting Rules for Mortgage-Backed Securities

    According to the New York Times:

    The independent Financial Accounting Standards Board voted to adopt guidelines under the so-called mark-to-market accounting rules, which require companies to value assets at prices reflecting current market conditions.

    The changes could reduce the losses banks have been forced to report as the values of their mortgage-backed securities have crumbled. The decision will allow the assets to be valued at what they would go for in an “orderly” sale, as opposed to a forced or distressed sale. The new guidelines will apply to the second quarter that began this month.

    It was never clear to me whether reforming mark-to-market rules was a good idea. Some experts say it is, others disagree. My understanding is that mark-to-market rules are good rules in principle. Supposedly, it was the timing of the reform at the end of 2007 that helped fuel the crisis. I would appreciate your opinions on this issue.

    That being said, markets are responding positively to the reform, says the Wall Street Journal:

    Stocks jumped on the news, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average up more than 250 points and above 8000 for the first time since February 10 as bank stocks rose.

    Obama Indicted under a citizen Grand Jury!

    While many groups have sought by civil actions to force Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate, someone new has emerged onto the scene to use another avenue to force that same production.

    Georgia resident Carl Swensson, has used his influence by way of his website to advance a criminal complaint against President Barack Obama.

    Swensson is using the Magna Carta as his basis for the authority to form this citizens grand jury. The Magna Carta is the bill of rights formed on British Law.

    Over the weekend the 25 sworn Jurors took testimony from many sources, and then filed them this morning with the States Attorney’s Office in Northern Georgia. The jurors were picked, sworn in, and informed of all official procedures.
