How we perceived life...once

Most poignant pic of the day

PALM DESERT, CA - JULY 12: Steve Ford (L) comforts his brother Jack Ford during the funeral for their mother and former first lady Betty Ford at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church July 12, 2011 in Palm Desert, California. Family, dignitaries, including first lady Michelle Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clintonattended the service at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, during which former first lady Rosalynn Carterand journalist Cokie Roberts presented eulogies for the outspoken Ford, who will be buried alongside her husband, former President Gerald R. Ford, in Grand Rapids, Michigan following a second service July 14.


When my own Mother passed, in 1982, there were politicians at her funeral, too.  But they were always 'too busy' to visit her...she suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis--ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)...and they, Dems all, apparently thought she was USELESS at that point.

She still had her very good brain...simply, she could no longer speak.

THAT'S when I began to distrust Democrats...and it will always be that way, especially as I, myself, am now 65, disabled, and the Obama-boy is saying my SS check might not be there on August 3rd?


My deepest condolences to the Ford family upon the loss of your very courageous outspoken mother.

She did all of us well!
