PHOTOS: PARTY FOR THE NRA

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

 

On Saturday, August 19, Conservative Women’s Forum and ICON Lectures joined at hosting a  party for the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Chapel Hill.  Their  excellent  training programs ensure that the public is trained to use firearms responsibly.   I’ve taken several of their classes to qualify for my concealed carry permit and the classes are exceptionally thorough and stress the  responsibility that goes with gun ownership.  The  NRA’s help in the 2016 election is also greatly appreciated. 
Our local affiliate of the NRA, is the Chapel Hill Friends of the NRA.  If you would like to support their efforts, checks can be made payable to CHFNRA  JDG and mailed to Chapel Hill Friends of the NRA,  123 Cub Creek Ext, Chapel Hill, NC  27517.      Nancy

CULTURE ROT – PHOTOS – GAY PRIDE PARADE, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, JULY 15, 2017

Friday, July 21st, 2017
While in San Diego  recently, I was able to  watch and photograph  a gay pride parade which is a yearly event in San Diego.  The old saying –  ” a photo is worth a thousand words”  applies here.  Surprising  and disturbing to me,  many of the churches, the army, navy, marines, air force, coast guard , the police, the sheriff’s office and the FBI were all  represented in the parade plus all the candidates for public office.  Additonally, there were many children in the parade that were being exposed to this lifestyle which I also   found very disturbing. 
These photos are being posted under the category “CULTURE ROT ” as I feel that our country’s traditional values are being undermined and homosexuality is  being  pushed to weaken us as a nation.    Nancy

DAY 3 – NORTH CAROLINA INAUGURAL BALL
The following photos are from our last night in Washington D.C. – Saturday, January 21, 20017 at the North Carolina Inaugural Ball.  So much fun to see friends who had been working on the various campaigns during the past few years.  It was a real celebration as everyone felt that they had played a small part in putting our candidates over the top.

PHOTOS – DAY 2 INAUGURATION, JANUARY 20, 2017

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017
PHOTOS  DAY 2 – INAUGURATION
The following photos were taken at the inaugural ceremony on Friday, January 20, 2017.    I’ve included several crowd shots to try to show you how closely packed we all were since the leftist media is making such a big deal about the crowd size.  There was a tremendous amount of people there and we were all standing shoulder to shoulder for hours.  
 One big difference I  did see  between the Obama crowd and the Trump crowd was that I remember seeing on TV the amount of trash that was left on the ground after Obama’s inauguration.  I saw one empty soda bottle left lying on the ground  at the Trump inauguration ceremony, no other trash.  So,  I would say that the Obama crowd definitely  won the trash contest !!!!  Nancy

The following photos were taken at the welcoming reception on Thursday evening at the Lincoln Memorial.   The crowds were huge so it  was difficult to get close enough to take quality photos but the entertainment was excellent and President Elect Trump and his family did appear for the evening.   There was such excitement in  the air as everyone was there to celebrate this historic  inauguration.  Nancy
