They support hate our Troops

The US Navy's Blue Angels have draw the wrath of the San Fransisco anti-war crowd... Well this is not news, they try every year to stop the Blue Angels from performing, except that this year it seems that they may seceded. So why do they want to ban the Blue Angels...
SAN FRANCISCO Efforts by several peace groups to stop the Blue Angels air show during Fleet Week in San Francisco have gained the support of Supervisor Chris Daly.

They’re weapons of mass destruction and there’s really nothing, I think, about them that people should think of as being good or desirable,” said Paul Cox with Veterans for Peace. “In a time where we’ve got a war going on in Iraq, it brings images of the kinds of death and destruction these things rain down on people around the world.”

And I will bet when asked he'll tell you he supports our troops

Update: Resoultion fails, more hate the troops..
“The Blue Angels are totally unnecessary,” said a resolution supporter. “I believe they are sent here to terrorize this town because we are an anti-war city.”

The Hill.com has made it's list of the 50 most beautiful people in Washington.
Nancy Pelosi made it at #4.

Ties to bin Laden here.
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.

I wonder if this was before or after Clinton bombed the empty tents in Afghanistan?
Answer: After...

In response, the U.S. launched cruise missiles on Aug. 20, 1998, striking a terrorism training complex in Afghanistan and destroying a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Khartoum, Sudan, that reportedly produced nerve gas. Both targets were believed to have been financed by wealthy Islamic radical Osama bin Laden, who was allegedly behind the embassy bombings as well as an international terrorism network targeting the United States.

Something I read.

Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together.

After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home. No, he responded. Heading out I asked? No. I'm escorting a soldier home. Going to pick him up? No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Iraq, I'm taking him home to his family.

The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honor for him. He told me that, although he didn't know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier's family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days. I turned back to him, extended my hand, and said, Thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family and I can do what we do.

Upon landing in Chicago the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the United States Marine Corps join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign."

Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his action made me realize that I am proud to be an American.

So here's a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.

Red Fridays. Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority." We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.

Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -- and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that ... every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red.

By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make things better for you?" is. "We need your support and your prayers." Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

Inside the Green House: A bit imposing

So often I've heard the line "don't impose your morality on me"... It seems that is not the case when it comes to the moral stewardship of our environment...
When Gareth Groves brought home his massive new Hummer, he knew his environmentally friendly neighbors disapproved. But he didn't expect what happened next. The sport utility vehicle was parked for five days on the street before two masked men smashed the windows, slashed the tires and scratched into the body: "FOR THE ENVIRON."
The good neighbors have some definite ideals of what is right and what is wrong.
Neighbor Lucille Liem, who owns a Prius hybrid, said that a common sentiment in the neighborhood is that large vehicles such as the Hummer are impractical and a strain on the Earth.
"The neighborhood in general is very concerned with the environment," said Liem, whose Prius gets about 48 miles a gallon compared with the Hummer's 14 miles a gallon. "It's more liberal leaning. It's ridiculous to be driving a Hummer."
And then comes the moment of spirtal purity.
Liem quickly added that she does not condone violence.

Pirates remorse

A 17 teen year old got drunk and stupid. In the morning he took a step in the right driection?
A lakegoing, kayak-paddling robber has acknowledged participating in recent heists on at least six boats on Hayden Lake, a gleaming blue jewel in northern Idaho better known for its calm bays than for its buccaneers.


The 17-year-old confessed to stealing wakeboards and other equipment from boats at six private Hayden Lake docks last weekend -- all incidents in which the teen and his companions accessed private docks with a kayak.

A conversation on Abortion

There are many pro-life videos on YouTube I was viewing them in an attempt to update some of my knowledge. I checked it again for this post. Now it seems someone has taken an interest in what I had to say and said something rather insufferable... here is the full conversation between me and a guy/gal named Freeplay.


WatersMoon110 (10 months ago)
Try using you know, facts next time.

And why the Hell are all of your pictures of born babies white, huh?




fartohard (me) (9 months ago)
What, you didn't read any of the facts listed in the movie? Why do people have to bring race into things? Unless they are racist.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
Because the video only showed white children, implying that minority children aren't as important to protect ;)




fartohard (me)(6 hours ago)

Abortion Is Racist more than twice as many blacks have died from abortion than from heart disease, cancer, accidents, violent crimes and AIDS combined; Blacks make up about 12 percent of the population but account for 32 percent of abortions; and About 1,450 black infants are aborted every day in this country. Jessie Jackson said in 1977. "Abortion is black genocide what happens to the mind of a person and the moral fabric of a nation that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby

And which gamete contains the soul, the sperm or the egg? Might we as well say masturbation is murder, since every sperm could have fertilized an egg and created a baby? How about condoms? Are condoms murder? Spermicidal jelly kills sperm!




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
FreePlay; The child's life begins at conception when the person first begins to grow, this is undeniable. Masturbation is not murder but it is a sin, for it does two things, feeds the potential to develop a sexual addition and it builds up unrealistic expectations thru fantasy. Some people are so full of hate and intolerance. I pray for people like you everyday.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
"Masturbation is not murder but it is a sin, for it does two things, feeds the potential to develop a sexual addition and it builds up unrealistic expectations thru fantasy."
Excuse me, but are you somehow implying that procreation isn't something you should enjoy? And you want to talk about unrealistic expectations... think of all the Christian teens who think that sex will be AMAZING for them when they finally have it for the first time... at age 25. That's a total f*#king disappointment.




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
Excuse me, but are you somehow implying that procreation isn't something you should enjoy? What? How did you twist my words to get this question? Sex is not to be all of life buddy. Sex without love is always a disappointment. And waiting for love is always better then not waiting, even though it is very hard and many will not make it, shouldn't every child know they have the option to wait? I think that if more children were told they can say no they would.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
You claimed that sex isn't something to become "addicted" to. And masturbation can't lead to sexual addiction because it's NOT SEX. But you seemed to be implying that developing a desire to have sex for pleasure is a bad thing."Sex without love is always a disappointment." Are you kidding? It's awesome. Sex without any messy commitments is very satisfying. And you obviously have too high an opinion of children's ability to make important decisions about their lives.




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
All addictions are bad because they become controlling behaviors that overrule rationality. And how in any way do you get the ideal that masturbation is not sex. That shows a lack of rationality. Commitment in a sexual relationship is the foundation of civilization.




FreePlay (6 days ago)
"Commitment in a sexual relationship is the foundation of civilization." No, it's not. Monogamistic love-based marriage are a recently NEW development. The most common form of marriage in the world TODAY is POLYGAMY. Sexuality has nothing to do with the foundation of civiliazation. Do your research.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
And shouldn't masturbation just as well be murder? After all, aren't all sins considered equal in the eyes of God?






fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
Yes





Then more on a different subject...


FreePlay (1 week ago)
Except that in most cases that young girls have abortions, the child would *not* have a chance at a good life




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
Based on what FreePlay?
I want to tell you I know lots of people who have made good lives from hard situations. Every life has potential. What you refuse to see is that every child is alive.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
"What you refuse to see is that every child is alive."
And what you refuse to see is that merely being alive isn't enough, when you're unwanted, abused, and despised.




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
I see you have a low opinion of women. To think that all of the 40,000,000 children kill by abortion were saved from this abuse you are certain these unloving woman were bound to force them to suffer thru. Again, it is possible to rise above your circumstance and that is especially true here in America.




FreePlay (1 week ago)
I don't have a low opinion of women. I have a high regard for the truth. Children who are born to parents who didn't want them or weren't ready to have kids yet are more likely to be abused.
And no, simply not having sex isn't always an option. In some marriages (like traditional Christian ones for example) sex and procreation are considered duties. Women are expected to become mothers whether they want to or not.

"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."
Margaret Sanger,
What did you do, go to a Planned Parenthood propaganda class?




FreePlay (6 days ago)
Guess what, kiddo? In that time period, eugenics was considered to be a scientific necessity for the good of the human race. It was upheld by politicians, scientists, celebrtities, and charitable organizations in the same way GLOBAL WARMING is today. if you didn't support eugenics, people blasted you for being anti-progressive, anti-science, and anti-American.




Fartohard (me)(6 days ago)
So then you did go to your propaganda classes. You seem to have learned well.
Just so you know opponents of eugenics in the 20s were almost all faith based,
and support was not as far spread has you have been lead to believe. I'm glad
you mentioned global warming, funny how history repeats.

Eugenic ideology was deeply embedded in American popular culture during the
1920s and 1930s. ... In church on Sunday, they might listen to a sermon selected
for an award by the American Eugenics Society -- learning that human improvement
required marriages of society's "best" with the "best." So much for THAT argument.




fartohard (me)(2 days ago)
3w-dot-orthodoxytoday-dot-org-slash-articles2-slash- RayEugenics-dot-shtml
"The few real critics of eugenics in the early 20th century were mainly conservatives and Christians like G.K. Chesterton who saw eugenic planning as just another arm of the wider campaign to impose a "scientific" socialist planning. In fact Chesterton subtitled his anti-eugenics tract "Eugenics and Other Evils" as: "An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized State."






At this point the conversation switches more to talk of God...

FreePlay (1 week ago)
The fact is that life is not as simple as anti-abortion activists seem to think it is. They see in black and white, when life is actually filled with shades of gray. I do not promote abortion. I hate the idea of abortion. But I hate it even more when people try to infuse my legally-secularized government with religious ideals.




fartohard (me)(1 week ago)
Your "legally-secularized government" is based on religious ideals. Our founders knew that without faith the rights we hold so dear would not be. It is for that reason that "endowed by our creator" is used in relation to our rights. Most of our laws are based on the time honored traditions of religious faith. Where these traditions had been ignored in the past you have Mao, Stalin and Hitler. Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood was a proponent of forced eugenics and segregation.




FreePlay (6 days ago)
'Your "legally-secularized government" is based on religious ideals.'
No, it's based on the confident that we hold these truths to be SELF-EVIDENT - obvious *WITHOUT* need of religion to tell us they're true.




Fartohard (me)(6 days ago)
And what was self-evident? That we are ENDOWED BY "OUR CREATOR" with the right of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness that is a religious ideal... our history our laws and our way of life are based on this ideal of "our Creator" being the source of our right not the government.




FreePlay (6 days ago)
And yet they saw fit to write in a LEGAL SEPARATION of any religious group from the state. How odd!




fartohard (me)(6 days ago)
They also wrote in the very same 1st amendment a prohibition against restricting religious groups by the state. The intention there was to protect religion from the state not the other way around.




FreePlay (5 days ago)
It was to do BOTH. The last time we had state-endorsed religion in America, people were burned at the stake.




"new"

fartohard (9 minutes ago)
The last time we removed "state-endorsed religion" was from our schools... You can see how badly that's turned out...




"new"

fartohard (9 minutes ago)
Schools now believe they have the STATE GRANTED RIGHT To take a 14year old girl to have a medical procedure that DOES have very serious risk and not even advise the parents to watch for any symptoms. You say I have too high of a regard that children will make the right decisions, Do you think that a 14 year old girl who was too scared to tell her mother she might be pregnant will tell about the bleeding her state-paid secret abortion has caused?




armourup (6 days ago)
Nothing is as abusive as dismemberment before you had ANY chance. See my daughter's story. Your COGNITIVE DISSONANCE is showing.




FreePlay (6 days ago)
Let me ask you a question. Do you support the war in Iraq? The death penalty? In-vitro fertilization?




fartohard (me)(6 days ago)
Can you say murder of 40,000,000 children is a right but defending your nation against killers and terrorist is wrong?




FreePlay (5 days ago)
Yes. I can.The Bible says "Thou shalt not kill," not "thou shalt only kill if it's convenient for you." I can't reconcile a belief that life is sacred with a belief that, if someone becomes an inconvenience, we should be able to kill them. And I notice you said nothing about in-vitro fertilization, so I'll ask you again: Do you support it?




fartohard (me)(4 days ago)
The proper translation is "thou shalt not murder" self defense is not murder so our war is just, I personally do not agree with the death penalty but only because of the chance of getting it wrong... If there is no doubt at all then yes, it's OK, But if you're wrong... So life without parole is a harsher punishment anyway.




FreePlay (4 days ago)
"The proper translation is "thou shalt not murder" Funny, I've never heard ANYONE make this excuse. "If there is no doubt at all then yes, it's OK" Psalm 94:1"O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth,shew thyself." Vengeance belongs to God, not to man. The death penalty is anti-God.




FreePlay (4 days ago)
*STILL* waiting for your answer about in-vitro fertilization.



FreePlay (4 days ago)
Seriously, though, I've never heard *ANYONE* claim that it's supposed to be translated "thou shalt not murder." That's just shoving in a wedge to give you an excuse to kill. And whatever happened to "if someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also"? Didn't JESUS say that? Do you really think revenge is justified?




fartohard (me)(3 days ago)
Talk to someone who is Jewish, that is how they read it. Funny how you defend atheism AND quote the bible. And If someone strikes me I'll turn my cheek, and if someone is on trial in a death penalty case I'll ask not to serve. But I do not think it's wrong for the state to mete out the justice called for by law, and I have served in the Navy. I never had to fire any weapon in anger but I would do my duty if called. And at no time did I feel I was out of step with God's will.




FreePlay (3 days ago)
"Talk to someone who is Jewish, that is how they read it." I just did. They laughed at your interpretation."I do not think it's wrong for the state to mete out the justice called for by law" "If someone strikes me I'll turn my cheek" Hmm. Nice contradiction. If you think you can kill a human being without going against God's will, you're an odd duck. So... how about that in-vitro question you keep avoiding?




fartohard (me)(2 days ago)
"I do not think it's wrong for the state to mete out the justice called for by law" "If someone strikes me I'll turn my cheek" No, because one is my personal reaction and the other is the state fulfilling their obligation.

Twisting the words to your liking is just a sign that you're trying to justify an anti-Biblical viewpoint. If you start nitpicking the subtleties of Biblical translation over this, you're really reaching.

Ok, if you want to say trying to place a historical context is nitpicking, then it is clear your mind is too closed for reason. Good Bye.




FreePlay (15 hours ago)
No. It's not about "context." It's about nitpicking the meaning of a word so that you can fit SOME killing in because it's CONVENIENT for you. It's about the hypocrisy of the so-called pro-life movement. It's only pro-SOME-life.




FreePlay (1 day ago)
And how is it a tough one? You had no problem justifying the killing of tens of thousands of people in war. You say abortion is murder. I say that ANY KILLING is murder.




fartohard (me)(1 day ago)
From the little I know on this subject... (and why I did not answer)... It seems to be a great tool for couples who have no other option to have their own children. In-vitro fertilization from what I know does not kill the embryos that are not used, they are stored, and this is the tough part because in ever since the embryos are only waiting to be destroyed, so I like the ideal that it helps people. I am concerned about the ethics for the unused. Tough one...




FreePlay (1 day ago)
"I am concerned about the ethics for the unused." Then how can you support it at all, if it's guaranteed that some will be destroyed? After all, as you said, life begins at conception, and every single one of those embryos has been concealed. What happens to the souls of the frozen garbage babies?

Talking About Rachel

Rachel Corrie was protesting the punishment of terrorist by standing in front of a 9 ton bulldozer this was her last act of giving aid and comfort. After her death her family and far left anti-American-war protesters attempted to gain political points by suing the manufacture of above Bulldozer. This case was recently thrown out of court and now the lefties are trying to get the case reinstated...From blatherwatch
Caterpillar built the D9 bulldozer involved in her death, and the suit, ridiculous on its face, was summed up today by the Corries' attorney, Maria LaHood, on the Dave Ross Show (KIRO m-f,9a-12p). "We're arguing that you can't knowingly provide the means to commit war crimes, which is essentially what Caterpillar has done."


Update: The Blatherwatch page has a photo of Rachel after her death that may be a bit hard to view. Here is the News story.

Truth and laughs

just 2 of the E-mails I've recived today :)
Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro Station in DC:
"There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one. An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20ish) female protester offered grandma a pamphlet, which she politely declined.

The young protester put her hand on the grandma's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?"

The little old woman looked up at her and said, "honey, my father died in Germany during World War II, I lost my husband in the Korean War and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your ass and open it."


And this one with a picture

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately; illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida.
Not me. I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a win-win situation.
+ Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.

+ Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.

+ Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today ?

McDermott Goes to Court

Jim McDermott wants the Supreme Court to overturn a ruling against him in the case of details leaked from an illegal recorded phone call
The U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled by a 5-4 margin back in May that McDermott improperly leaked the phone conversation, which involved GOP leaders - including Boehner - strategizing on how to deal with the fallout from an ethics case against then Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

Back ground on this: The phone call was recorded by a couple who had given money to the democrats and received a radio scanner has a thank you gift. It was illegal to modify a scanner, yet somehow it had been so that it could receive signals on the cell phone bans. March 2006 A lower court ruled 2-1 in favor of John Boehner
The court said, "Because there was no genuine dispute that Representative McDermott knew the Martins had illegally intercepted the conversation, he did not lawfully obtain the tape from them."

Now for a little background on the phonecall that started it all.
The call was intercepted by Mr. and Mrs. John Martin of Fort White, Fla. They were driving through Jacksonville and listening to a new police scanner illegally constructed to intercept broadcast phone calls. They also had a tape recorder on the front seat.
Upon recognizing Newt Gingrich's voice they stopped and flipped on their recorder. The message was coming through to Rep. Boehner enroute to Marco lsland. He was parked at a restaurant while his family had breakfast.
The group were discussing what Newt's response should be when the Ethics sub-committee released Gingrich's admission confession the next day. Gingrich asked his lawyer if the Ethics Committee special counsel, Jim Cole, had approved the three-way discussion. The answer was yes. The question was pertinent because Gingrich had agreed not to make any "public announcements" in his defense. Democrats later contended the private call violated the agreement, though it is clear that the embattled speaker had checked first with the special counsel and never defended himself -- a tactical error.
The Martins -- Democrat party activists -- took the tape to the local office of Florida Rep. Karen Thurman. She listened and advised the Martins give the tape to Minority Whip David Bonior when they went to Washington, D.C., to attend the opening ceremony of Congress.
Bonior denies knowledge of the tape, but someone on his staff told the Martins to take it to Rep. McDermott. They waited several hours outside the committee room door for McDermott. He took the tape and thanked them. The Martins said they had been promised "immunity" from any legal consequences of taping and distributing an intercepted phone call. Thus, it is obvious that all knew the tape was illegal

With a little effort it would not be hard to think that this "gift" was given expressly to get this type tape.

Jogging is a hate crime

Well not yet. But when french intellectuals refer to it being right-wing, hate crime status can not be far off.
President Sarkozy has fallen foul of intellectuals and critics who see his passion for jogging as un-French, right-wing and even a ploy to brainwash his citizens.

Oh no! "all your jogger are belong to us." must be a tin-foil shortage in France
“Is jogging right wing?” wondered LibĂ©ration, the left-wing newspaper. Alain Finkelkraut, a celebrated philosopher, begged Mr Sarkozy on France 2, the main state television channel, to abandon his “undignified” pursuit. He should take up walking, like Socrates, Arthur Rimbaud, the poet, and other great men, said Mr Finkelkraut.

He is too dumb to know that walking is better for the nation world.
“Western civilisation, in its best sense, was born with the promenade. Walking is a sensitive, spiritual act. Jogging is management of the body. The jogger says I am in control. It has nothing to do with meditation.”

The English translation... it's too manly American.
Le jogging, originally known as le footing and now more fashionably as le running, caught on in France, as elsewhere, in the 1980s and eight million claim to indulge. But Mr Sarkozy has rekindled a French suspicion that the habit is for self-centred individualists such as the Americans who popularised it.

Patrick Mignon, a sports sociologist, noted that French intellectuals had always held sport in contempt, while totalitarian regimes cultivated physical fitness.

Now we know how to save democracy in America, don't exercise and eat at McDonald's. What ever you do don't go to the gym.
The “hypnotic” daily images of presidential running are not innocent, said Daniel Schneidermann, a media critic. Mr Sarkozy uses the video images of his jogging as “a major weapon of media manipulation”, said Mr Schneidermann.

See this is not about an Innocent run around to park, it's about establishing the NWO.
I'll bet Alex Jones is all over this one.

War is the answer

It appears that the furthest left of the far left peace movement is getting froggy...this is an add for a Ward Churchill book 'Pacifism as Pathology'

Pacifism, the ideology of nonviolent political resistance, has been the norm among mainstream North American progressive groups for decades. But to what end? Ward Churchill challenges the pacifist movement's heralded victories—Ghandhi in India, 1960s anti-war activists, even Martin Luther King's civil rights movement—suggesting that their success was in spite of, rather than because of, their nonviolent tactics.

Time now to start the new revolution?

Poster Girl

Someone who sings right truth to the left's power.

Money doesn't grow on trees

But it seems Euros may just appear out of thin air.
A police spokesman in the small western town said the 24-year-old woman saw the money flying through the air in her rear view mirror late on Wednesday. She pulled over and tried to collect all the notes, unsuccessfully.

When you charge people hundreds of dollars

To see your farewell concert, you're supposed to go away! Barbra Streisand is on a European tour right now.
Streisand, one of the best-selling female artists of all time, is on a six-week, eight-city tour through Europe.

So why is she in Germany now for the first time in her career?
"I'm really glad to be in your city -- it's filled with culture...and the deserts I love," Streisand said in the open-air Waldbuehne arena,
This after having been sued by fans who felt ripped off after they paid hundreds of dollars to see her farewell concert. This was not just a I think I'll call it quits thing, in 2000 she flat out said She would never again perform in public and using this she was able to charge an average of 350$ a ticket. I don’t think the fans won though, I don’t know at all. A quick search didn’t reveal any outcome of the suit.
I noticed in the linked story that Barbra didn't do much complaining about the Good Ol' USA, or at least they didn't report it. That is out of character for her
Even though I may complain about certain things, I've come to look at the glass as half full."

And from a different source
"Through understanding and education we can avoid the horrors of the past, whether it is the atrocities of the Holocaust, or Rwanda, or Darfur, or anywhere else in the world."

Maybe she is beginning to see the light. :)

Sunday Scan


The shredded money came from a novelty shop in a shoe box that claimed to contain 1,000,000 dollars so I added a little change to it and took this photo

Remember the old days

When they wanted to change the laws over smoking pot because we were putting 19 year old college kids in prison for years over a joint.
Well now that some of those 19 year old kid are grown up and in charge and are worried about their property value we have a new crime that has put a 21 year old pregnant woman behind bars.

A Gwinnett County woman's grass is high; there are cars in her front yard, and now the 21-year-old pregnant woman has gone to jail because of it.

Now to be fair

Gwinnet County police said a trip to jail is not a typical result. They said they always issue a written notice of violation first, then try to work with the homeowner to get things cleaned up.
