“Little Miss Muffet Leads to Russia”

Share

LVC Editor’s Note: This article ran in the Commentator’s Summer 2017 print edition on the front page.

by, Linda Shuker

In the years between 1553-1604, lived Dr Thomas Muffet, who had a liking for spiders, so much so, he considered them to be pets and gave them the run of his house. He, also, had a daughter, who did not share in his affection for them, but tended to be so spooked, as to run from them. In 1805, the first printed version of a rhyme, written by the good doctor, went like this ……

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey; Along came a spider, who sat down beside her, and frightened Miss Muffet away.

Yes,

REPUBLICAN PARTY: The Republican Party has internal rules that Party members (R-Committee) must support the Party’s nominees or else risk being thrown out of the Party.

CONGRESSMAN CHARLIE DENT: Republican Congressman Dent went on national TV and announced that he will not support the Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump. Trump won anyway.

CHARLIE DENT THE HYPOCRITE: One of Mr. Dent’s administrative assistants was elected Lehigh County Republican Party head. Her name is Jessica Bonatai. Once in office Ms Bonatai has been reportedly moving to remove Trump supporters from the Lehigh County Republican Committee. Looks like Charlie Dent saying– do as I say– not as I do! Also, we are receiving reports that the Northampton County Republican Party

HARRISBURG: Governor Tom Wolf pushed the Transgender Bathroom Bills in Harrisburg. It had bi-partisan support and opposition. Many citizens rose up to oppose these measures, led by the group “Protect My Privacy.” The pressure became so great that the politicians pulled out an old trick—they split up the bills trying to get them passed piecemeal. Thus far it has not worked. Citizen demonstrations and visits to the legislators has had an effect. Not only will these bills harm our wives, daughters, and grandchildren’s privacy in the bathroom, but they also include showers and other accommodations (rooms on trips) and may kill women’s athletics. Stay tuned to this.

THE NATION: Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for a temporary halt to all Muslims coming into the United States. Mr. Trump wants our government to seriously look into whether or not Jihadists are infiltrating the immigrant populations. Trump has been vilified by many across the political spectrum for this position. But is he right? Kelly Ripa, of the Kelly and Michael Show, questioned Trump about the Constitutionality of this move! Trump responded that there are no Constitutional questions for foreigners; the Constitution applies to American citizens.

 

Is Trump right? History does come into play with our answer. During World War Two—did we allow citizens from Nazi Germany, or Japan to immigrate into the United States? No

Bruce Klingner, a senior research fellow for Northeast Asia at The Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center, spent 20 years in the intelligence community working at the CIA and Defense Intelligence Agency.

 

After a series of previous failures, Pyongyang achieved partial success with the most recent launches of its Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile.

On June 21, the two Musudan missiles traveled 150 and 400 kilometers—far short of a fully successful test but indicating incremental progress toward eventually achieving its estimated range of 3,500 kilometers. North Korea’s four previous Musudan test flights in April and May 2016 had

As Republican policymakers nationwide continue debating ways to replace Obamacare with patient-centered solutions, a Colorado group has landed a plan implementing a single-payer model of health care on November’s ballot. Coloradans are already bracing for its impact.

In the general election, Colorado residents will not only head to the polls to cast their votes for president, but they’ll also weigh in on a controversial ballot measure: Amendment 69, which would create a government-run health care plan in the Centennial

The Barber

Blessed are those that can give without remembering, and take without forgetting.

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.’

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.

The cop was happy
