Letter Sounds

Surely a grandmother has the right to blog about anything she wants. It is still a free country. So, here we are with another Christmas day layout of Caleb.  The teacher in me fell in love with the magnetic letters that make the letter sounds when pushed. He's only two, but almost three and...oh well better to have them now than to never have had them at all.  

I did say it is a free country. Of course daily I hear of new challenges to that. Someone got in trouble for putting a comparison  on FaceBook of our president to Hitler with his confiscation of fire arms.

So you have free speech...unless 'liberals' don't like it.

Senators will not obey the Senate's own rules.  Those rules call for publishing a bill online at least 48 hours before they vote on it.  But Democrats will bring up a bill one morning, not put it online and vote on it the same day...even one that is 600 pages long. 48 hours are not even enough! Tell me how many of you would actually read a 600 page bill in a few hours and understand it well enough to make a decision that affects your country?  Oh by the way and attend to your other duties as well?  No wonder we are in a big fix. All sorts of things are becoming law without the benefit of Congress even knowing what they are doing.  A bill entitled one thing may include lots and lots of clauses that have absolutely nothing to do with it, but in some way increase taxes or inhibit the freedom of our people. No one knows until after  it is law. Like Nancy Pelosi said, "But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."
