The RosettaSister Gang of Liberty Lovers — número tres





Cyn in Paris 1973

In Paris 1973

My name is cynkading and I am 52 years old. I am a stay at home wife and love it.  I am very reclusive and do not post often. I live in a small town in Arkansas and some people say that this area is a hunting and fishing paradise. There are 2 state wildlife refuges within 5 miles in either direction of my home and I am 10 minutes from the White River.  I am married and have 2 daughters, 2 step-sons and 2 grandchildren.


I have been reading daily at Rosetta’s for over a year now. I have learned so very much from everyone that posts information there. I can’t thank you all enough for the truth, the humor, the friendship, and most of all your love for God and this country.

    BTW, Cyn, how old were you in the photo taken in Paris?

    I’m curious because we’re the same age (my birthday was July 2) and in the Spring of 73 (I was 15) I also traveled to Europe (Italy, England, Ireland)

    My parents took us out of school for a month, it was great!

    I ate a lot and gained weight!

  2. cynkading Says:

    Rose, I was 15 as well. My mom took me on a 6 week vacation. We traveled to Germany , France, England, Italy, Switzeralnd, Austria, and Holland. My birthday is July 12th! Our paths may have crossed somewhere along the way…..

    BTW, I lived in Mexico, about an hour away from Guadalajara, for close to 2 years. Was living there during 9/11. I tried to return to the U.S. soon after but the borders were closed and I was not allowed to pass through for a couple of months……Was the longest couple of months of my life. All of my family were in the U.S.

  8. cynkading Says:

    I did suffer a nervous breakdown from all of the stress….Not really happy about that admission but what the hey….

    “The name’s Obama — BARACK Obama.”

    Of all the outside-the mainstream notions I’ve posited on this blog, the one that annoys the most people is my suggestion that the CIA recruited young Barack Obama during his days at Occidental College. I would further suggest that the Agency link runs in the family. I believe that, at an earlier time, the Agency (or some other branch of the intelligence community) may have recruited his mother, Ann Dunham.

  11. rosettasister Says:

    Cyn, I can relate to that, too.

    Did you happen to read the post I put up about 9/11?

    I’ll find it and post the link.

    You know it was the longest time before I could even speak of it.

    And when I finally put pen to paper (so to speak) the emotions just came pouring out of me.

    It was actually very cathartic.

    My husband says I suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    I told him that if that’s true I’m certainly not the only one.

    Everyone was affected in a different way that day.

    Nothing to be ashamed of.

    And it’s good to tell your story.

    Everyone has a story.

    Dear Mrs. xxxxxxx,

    Thank you for sharing your perspective with us regarding our decision not to advertise during the Glenn Beck show. Like many other advertisers, we work through a media buyer to purchase time on broadcast stations during periods when our targeted demographic is likely to be watching. Our advertisements are never intended to support or endorse a particular program, and we do not determine our media purchases based on interest groups or political agendas.

    Regarding this decision, we want to be clear that ConAgra Foods is firmly committed to diversity. That commitment is not related in any way to a political or special interest group agenda-our commitment to diversity is core to our company’s values. In addition, our advertising objectives-including reaching our targeted demographic-can be accomplished without the use of purchased air time during the Glenn Beck show.

    Seems like she’s saying ConAgra doesn’t need consumers from the Beck audience??? Losing them won’t hurt a bit???

    White House: 10-year deficit up $2 trillion to $9 trillion

    My Reuters colleagues break the news that the White House is revising upward its ten-year budget forecast to $9 trillion from $7 trillion:

    “The new forecasts are based on new data that reflect how severe the economic downturn was in the late fall of last year and the winter of this year,” said the official, who is familiar with the plans.

    “Our budget projections are now in line with the spring and summer projections that the Congressional Budget Office put out.”

    The CBO said in June that deficits between 2010 and 2019 would total $9.1 trillion.

    The official said the 2010-2019 cumulative deficit projection replaces the administration’s previous estimate of $7.108 trillion.


    Expect the CBO to also crank up its forecast, which will be higher than the administration’s.

    Also, this is further evidence that the common wisdom that people don’t care about budget deficits (no matter what the polls say) is wrong.

    C’mon, leaking such news on a late Friday afternoon?

    Mark Steyn’s MST3K of Newsweeks’ podcast


    [audio src="" /]



    HH: One more clip. (Newsweeks’ podcast)

    …symbolized to many people. Why did SPLC president Richard Cohn call for CNN to fire anchor Lou Dobbs?

    Well, it was, the immediate cause was over his floating once again of the birther claims, that you know, Obama needs to show his real birth certificate to show he’s really a legitimate citizen, and then therefore president.

    Really, though, this came at the end of a seven or eight year back and forth between us and Dobbs over his continual claims that are false.

    Most of them have been surrounding immigration, and have the effect of demonizing immigrants, and are…

    MS: No, no, wait a minute. Wait a minute. No, they haven’t.

    Lou Dobbs is quite clear on that. I speak as an immigrant. I am an immigrant in the lawful sense.

    That is to say I did the paperwork, and I submitted it to the government, and they returned the paperwork with a stamped yes on it. That’s what an immigrant is.

    Lou Dobbs in the main, and I don’t agree with Dobbs particularly, I don’t agree with him particularly on this birther business, although I don’t see why he should get fired over it.

    But on the immigrant thing, what he’s concerned about is people coming to the United States and working for low wages, people who are in the country illegally, taking jobs and depressing wages as Lou Dobbs sees it.

    Now the Southern Poverty Law Center, one big cause of southern poverty is in fact depressed wages caused by illegal immigrant labor.

    You’d think that would be their issue.

    HH: Mark, we’ve got about a minute left.

    Just a comment on Newsweek’s approach here. We’ve only done 8 minutes.

    The podcast goes on and on and on in this vein.

    They really have no idea, do they, of how ludicrous this is.

    MS: I don’t think they do, and what is sad to me is

    I think those of us who are so-called right wing actually live in a world where we’re exposed constantly to other people’s views, to the other side’s views,

    not just through political discussion, but through comedy and movies and education and all the rest of it.

    These people are living in a bubble, and talking to themselves.

    They’re the ones in the bubble, not the right wing.

    Michael Yon’s incredible reporting from Helmand Province in Afghanistan

    Listen: Michael Yon comes in approx: 19:00



    Benjamin Kopp

    MY: Well, Benjamin Kopp was a United States Army Ranger from the 3rd battalion of U.S. Army Rangers.

    And he was killed last month in July in Helmand Province in a firefight, and he was an organ donor. And…I’m sorry, Hugh?

    HH: At 21 years old. I just wanted people to know that.

    MY: Yeah, he was 21 years old. It was his third combat tour.

    And he was a corporal, and he was an organ donor, and his heart immediately went to a woman, a family friend who was very much in need of a heart.

    And I saw an article in the Washington Post where she was quoted as saying something like

    you know, why wouldn’t, you have to be happy or something like that to have the heart of a 21 year old Ranger beating in me.

    It’s just a phenomenal person.

    He must have had an incredible mother to raise up a soldier like that who would then become an organ donor and continue to save lives even after he’s given his own.

    Joseph Etchells

    HH: Michael, when we went to break, we were talking about the amazing Corporal Benjamin Kopp, age 21, killed on his third combat tour, and that hero donated his heart and organs so that others might live.

    And you also tell us about Joseph Etchells, who is an extraordinary British soldier who, I’ll just read from the dispatch here,

    “I attended a small ceremony for a British soldier from this base in Helmand who was killed in combat the day after Benjamin Kopp passed.

    His name was Joseph Etchells.

    I was told how Joseph died in a bomb ambush, and that his last request was to be cremated, loaded into a firework, and launched over the park where he used to play as a kid.

    When Joseph’s last request was explained, I burst out laughing, and the British soldiers who told me was also laughing.”

    You know, Michael, these people are just sort of beyond the ordinary experience of folks.

    But what do you suggest we do about this unusual halo effect on helicopters, and these two amazing heroes?

    MY: Well, I would suggest that the effect, which is unnamed, be named the Kopp-Etchells Effect,

    in honor not only of these two incredible soldiers, both of whom were on their third tours in Afghanistan, but in honor of all the soldiers who’ve been, and troops in general

    who’ve given their lives and limbs in all the wars that our country has faced, and that the British have faced alongside us.

    And so that’s why I named that dispatch the Kopp-Etchells Effect.


    HH: So Michael, after your time in Afghanistan this time, do you see the new strategy unfolding in real time, the McCrystal strategy?

    Is there evidence of it working? Do we need more troops?

    MY: Definitely need more troops in my view. And that’s based on a lot of travels in different parts of Afghanistan.

    It’s too early to tell.

    You know, I recall in early 2007, and late 2006 in Iraq when it started to look like we might really lose the war, yet we came in with a new strategy and new troops, and you remember the turnaround in mid-2007.

    In fact, it was on your program in about June, I think, of 2007, I believe John Burns and I were the first ones to report the turnaround.

    HH: Yup.

    MY: And I think we both did it on your show.

    HH: Yup.

    MY: But you know, that was a phenomenal turnaround. It was almost unbelievable.

    And so despite how gloomy it looks here now, and it does look gloomy,

    I’m not going to kid you, I’m still hopeful, and not that hope is a strategy, but

    that our combined experience that our commanders have now, they’ll be able to make it work here. (in Afghanistan)

    But I do think it’s going to take a lot longer than we ever saw in Iraq.

    I don’t foresee this thing being over anytime soon.

Here evidence is collected and presented which, according to Jane Burgermeister, reveales that there is a plan in action to reduce the world population by using contaminated vaccines. Jane Burgermeister shows that several international organisations are invloved with this plan as are several international companies.

    Iranian boy who defied Tehran hardliners tells of prison rape ordeal

    The 15-year-old boy sits weeping in a safehouse in central Iran, broken in body and spirit.

    Reza will not go outside — he is terrified of being left alone.

    He says he wants to end his life and it is not hard to understand why:

    for daring to wear the green wristband of Iran’s opposition he was locked up for 20 days, beaten, raped repeatedly and subjected to sexual humiliations and abuse.

    “My life is over. I don’t think I can ever recover,” he said, as he recounted his experiences to The Times — on condition that his identity not be revealed.

    A doctor who is treating him, at great risk to herself, confirmed that he is suicidal, and bears the appalling injuries consistent with his story.

    The family is desperate, and is exploring ways of fleeing Iran.

    Obama Banks on Congress Dems to Push Health Plan

    By: Dick Morris & Eileen McGann
    Having stuck his neck out — through trial balloons suggesting a possible abandonment of the public option — President Barack Obama is now retreating into Fort Democrat and relying on his own party members to jam through healthcare legislation. With 60 senators and a 76-vote margin in the House, he need not compromise or even listen to Republicans.
    He can invoke the so-called “nuclear option” and pass his bill in the Senate with just 50 votes and no possibility of real debate, much less a filibuster.
    So no matter how low Obama’s plan sinks in the polls, he feels that he can rely on his loyal troops to march in lockstep and pass his healthcare proposals.
    The firestorm of protest his possible abandonment of the public option set off represented a signal to him from the party’s left: We will stay with you through thick and thin, just don’t compromise.
    Can he pull it off? Probably. Except if the elderly block vote against him in the polls.
    Already seniors oppose his plan by 32-49 in the latest FoxNews poll. If their margin of disagreement swells . . . and their anger continues to manifest in the town hall meetings and other public gatherings . . . and senators and congressmen are deluged by handwritten letters from seniors opposing the bill, there is a chance to stop it.
    Ever since Franklin D. Roosevelt passed Social Security in 1937 and Lyndon B. Johnson pushed through Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, the elderly have block voted for the Democratic Party. Their support is one of the core elements on which the party continues to rely for its political backing.
    If the Democrats can be convinced that there is a real chance that healthcare reform, financed by Medicare cuts, will reverse the elderly’s staunch Democratic devotion, they may not cast the fateful votes.
    After all, just as education is primarily a concern for parents usually in their 20s and 30s, healthcare is mainly an issue for the elderly (particularly since all children can get insurance through the SCHIP program Bill Clinton passed).
    If the elderly manifest their outrage and concern, the Democrats cannot ignore the firestorm of criticism from their traditional base.
    No less a figure than Leon Trotsky once said “revolution is impossible until it becomes inevitable.” That’s our current situation. Stopping healthcare from passing with the top heavy Democratic majorities in both houses is clearly impossible . . . until it becomes inevitable. That is until the seniors weigh in with massive opposition and red hot intensity.

They, like the Luciferians, are deluded enough to think that they are helping the incapable American public. These bastards need to go home. The man was absolutely correct, “you’ve been in there long enough and it’s time you got out.” It seems the only thing that will get through the criminal minds in D.C. is for the public to force them to listen, force them to give citizens standing, to force them to stand down, to cut off all support to the national government, and to especially stop giving away our production, property, children and sovereignty to a bunch of lying thieving private banksters.

    Under the Hammer

    The White House has done a fantastic job of handling the debate on Obama’s background. Anyone who wants any information about Obama other than what has already been provided is a “birther” defined as a fanatic and an idiot. There is no need to discuss things with fanatic idiots.

    What I would like for someone to take the time to explain is why on earth Obama doesn’t ask Hawaii to send him a copy of his birth certificate with the state seal and the name of the doctor who delivered him, his weight and length at birth, the hospital where he was born and all the other information that is on everybody else’s birth certificate.

    I don’t understand why it is a crazy request, but by making it I am an idiot and a fanatic. No doubt Duke University will send someone out to repossess my diploma and the North Carolina Press Association will get a court order and take all of my awards back.

    We don’t know much about Obama. He went to an exclusive and expensive private school in Hawaii. How did he get in? Who paid? Did his grandparents pay? Did he get some kind of scholarship?

    He was at Occidental College in California and then transferred to Columbia. That is a huge leap up in the college world. Was he making straight As at Occidental? Did he have a professor who saw his potential and sponsored him? Why is it that nobody at Columbia remembers him? Certainly he must have had some friends at the school.

    The same questions for Harvard Law School; how did he get in? Who paid? What did he make on his law boards?

    When former president George W. Bush was running against Sen. John Kerry the college transcripts for both men who were Yale graduates were released and it turned out that Bush had better grades than Kerry.

    It was not considered wrong to ask about Bush’s college grades, or to interview people who knew him at Yale. It seems that everyone who knew Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton at Yale law school has been interviewed and that is OK, but ask any questions about Obama’s past other than what he has covered in his two autobiographies and there is something wrong with you.

    Look, dropping the public option doesn’t cut the mustard. Burn the blasted bill in its entirety and work on tort reform.

    I’ve been reading the 5000 Year Leap. There is a lot of good stuff in that book. Unfortunately, I just came to a chapter that says it requires a majority to throw off a tyrannical government. That is simply NOT true. It said that the majority was responsible for the Revolutionary War and DOI. That is simply NOT true. Only about 7% of the population participating actively in the revolution. Yes, there were representative from all of the colonies involved, but definitely not a majority of the people. Only about 23% of the adult population voted for S/Ob.

    If we allow our republic to be destroyed, it will be because WE ALLOWED OUR REPUBLIC TO BE DESTROYED. Leo is smart…he is not always right and he is not God. I don’t know what the future holds for us, but I do know that we will only have what we fight for.

    Agreed, Ten, the Revolutionary War was not a really popular thing at the time, but as the fight continued, more and more people came to see how valuable their freedoms were. Then and only then did they become ‘patriots.’ But, the majority of the people at that time were not in favor of revolution.

    Ten, if you think having government-run versus NO government-run is not important, then I beg to differ.

    Some are saying Conrad’s coops are just government-run by another name, but I do not trust them.

    In fact, I believe those that are spouting that are playing right into Dem playbook.

    “See, Repubs don’t care about you and only want status quo.”

    Then they’ll try and ram the public “option” down our throats, and it won’t taste too good.

    I am reserving judgment on coops, Enzi is right, Dems will try and manipulate in conference.

    You know I agree with Regina Herzlinger and prefer the Swiss model or Wyden-Bennett.

    But Wyden speaks out of both sides of his mouth.

    And you know I want everyone covered somehow, but that doesn’t mean I am in favor of government-run anything.

    In fact, if I had to choose between NO universal coverage and government-run I would choose the former.

    But it doesn’t have to be that way, if both sides would just STOP playing games.
