That Barbie Really IS A *itch!

A mother in Middlesborogh bought a Barbie toy mobile phone, and was surprised (to say the least) when her daughter was singing along with swear words.

HA! Thanks, Barbie, now I have to unteach my kid the f-word!

I assume, that is. The news story doesn't mention what song was being sung, and what the vile language in question was... Just that there were several expletives involved.

Jordanian Prince condemns ARABS?

Prince Hassan of Jordan, who was once in line for the throne, told an international conference that the Arab leaders are guilty of wasting billions of dollars, and condemned Iran's nuclear ambitions!

At the Kyoto conference, Hassan said:

"Arab leaders stole billions of dollars from the Arab people in order to spend them on weapons to fight Israel, which they can never defeat, instead of using the money for health and education purposes to aid their people."

Ever feel like you've awakened in an alternate universe?

Big Business:

Attachment: You're Fired!

Ever been fired by e-mail? 400 folks from Radio Shack have.

From the story on AP:

Employees at the Fort Worth headquarters got messages Tuesday morning saying: "The work force reduction notification is currently in progress. Unfortunately your position is one that has been eliminated."

Can you imagine? Talk about dehumanizing, and cowardly, too.

I wonder how much money and time they saved with this bone-headed move? It won't be long until they declare massive losses, or maybe even bankruptcy, in my opinion. In my area, they close stores almost as quickly as they open, and the service in the ones that remain is terrible. They NEVER have what I'm after, and the salesmen are ignorant and rude.

Go capitalism! Get rid of the weak! Now if only the government would stop subsidizing NASA and the airline industry!

History: Pt.1

Today I will be posting on a little family history I have recently run across, and asking to pick my fellow bloggers' brains for historical knowledge.

My Grandmother has a small metal box full of letters and a few old things, but her knowledge about it is limited. This post will focus on half of the box.

I have a relative, Robert Lunsford, who was apparently in the Army from 1911 to 1916, and then in the National Guard, as a Corporal.

I have surmised from this medal that he must have been at the battle of Meuse-Argonne in France in 1918, as this is a Victory Medal with service bars from that front.

There is also a dog tag, from shortly after the Army made them mandatory. It in includes only his name and serial number on the back. (The picture I took of that was too blurry, so I didn't post it here.)

What I'm having some trouble with is the uniform patch with the eagle in the circle. Does anyone know what this stood for? Also, I belive these handcuffs belonged to him. Do they look to be the right time period? There is a possibility that they could've belonged to a Civil War soldier in the family.

Thanks, all!

History: Part 2

In that box of stuff that my Grandmother has are many, many letters from my Great-Great Grandfather, who was a Union Soldier in the Civil War.

Most of them are to his wife, and consist of : How are you, I am fine/ We marched a lot/why don't you write me more often/ how's the family, ect.

John Carter did not make it out of the War; he died in a Confederate prison camp, one day before the prisoners, including his brother, were released.

A few letters are from his wife, who later married a man from Kentucky... Only to find out that he was a bigamist! She had the marriage dissolved, and had to re-apply to the Army for John's pension, citing extra-ordinary circumstances. The Army graciously re-instated her monthly stipend. She never re-married.

Now, to pick your brains again... These invaluable letters are in frail condition, and I would like to know if anyone knows a way to preserve them? Will a museum do it? If they are donated, do they become the museum's property, or are they considered 'on loan' from the family?

Thanks, all!

So much for the NeoCon thing...?

Bwaaahaaahaaaa! Ghandi! *whew*

The REAL Reason For The Space Shuttle Delay...

Nasrallah: Oops!

The intrepid leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah gave an interview yesterday on Lebanese television... And the comments were interesting, to say the least.

Nasrallah insisted that he would never have kidnapped the Israeli soldiers had he known that the response would be so strong...

So we have more proof that might makes right in the Arab mind, straight from the lips of one of it's scummiest leaders. Helloooo... Are you guys in Washington getting this?

Nasrallah then followed up with a little face-saving taqiyya: He insisted that he knew of an Israeli plan to attack Hezbollah in October, and merely moved up the timetable of the Jooos attack that was going to happen anyway.

Ah, so it's still those pesky Zionists' fault; NEVER hold the innocent Muslim responsible for his own actions!

"The Israelis wanted to begin this war," Nasrallah said, calling it "an American decision" with "many European countries" involved. He insisted Israel was looking for "an Arab cover."

Nasrallah also gave no regrets or apologies for the deaths of Israeli civilians, saying that Israel was the aggressor. He also gave no indication that Hezbollah would comply with the U.N. disarmament treaty...

But we all know how that one will turn out, don't we?

128 Students Suspended On The First Day Of School

Morton High School, in Hammond Indiana, sent home 128 students on the first day of school for inappropriate attire.

Getting suspended on the first day? Ouch!

Principal Theresa Mayerik suspended kids for too baggy pants, low cut shirts, tank tops and graphic tees with inappropriate messages. Cell phones being used in class were also a source of contention.

"This was the worst year I've seen in a long time," said Principal Theresa Mayerik. "It's gotten out of control, and we needed to send a message that we're not messing around."

Kudos, Principle Mayerik! Someone needs to draw a line in the sand; to send a clear message that school is about education, not a social club where fashion trends are set and you can put that pesky history lesson on hold to call your 'peeps' in the class down the hall.

The school has offered to remove the violations if no other infractions occur in the first 12 weeks of school.

School board members said they support Mayerik and the mass suspensions. "I'd be supportive if half the school was sent home, because 99 percent will get the message our schools are for education," board president Rebecca Ward said.

Too Old To RAWK!

Is Sir (HA) Mick Jagger too old to rock?

At 63, the singer keeps and oxygen tank backstage to get him through a two hour performance, strapping on a mask during Keith Richards' two guitar solos.

Actually, I'm shocked he made it to age 63, let alone that he can still put on any kind of a show! Rumor has it that he uses the oxygen to get a 'natural high', to help keep him awake for after-show partying.

I hope he knows that oxygen dependence can grab you just like any other drug addiction... Your blood loses it's ability to carry normal amounts of oxygen efficiently when pure oxygen is abused, thus making one reliant.

Ah, what the heck... Pass the cannula!

What If...

What if The New York Times ran as rampant in WWII as they do now?

History would've been a lot different...

Yeah, I know... But it's never too late to mock the NYT! ;)

Instant Blindness: Public Nude Bathing

A homeless woman in Berlin has taken the term "public indecency" to a whole new level...

"Billie", who weighs 300+ pounds, insists on bathing in the capitol's public fountains. She has been busted, shampoo bottle in hand, more than 21 times for causing a public disturbance, as well as breaking and entering.

Berlin social workers say that she steadfastly refuses to use the homeless shelter's facilities.

"We can't force her," a public spokesman said.

OK... Here goes the cruel, insensitive NeoCon in me... If this woman, "Billie", is homeless and destitute, (and obviously a nutter) how is it that she weighs more than 300 pounds? Apparently she's got money to eat!

Cows Have Accent?

Mooo? Moooew? Moowwww? Mmmmmo?

Can cows moo with an accent? A group of British farmers from West Country Farmhouse Cheesemakers thinks so.

"I spend a lot of time with my Friesians and they definitely 'moo' with a Somerset drawl," he said, referring to the breed of dairy cow he owns.

"I've spoken to the other farmers in the West Country group and they have noticed a similar development in their own herds.

"I think it works the same as with dogs - the closer a farmer's bond is with his animals, the easier it is for them to pick up his accent."

Although they think more study is needed on the subject, University College London Phonetics Professors think that it isn't so far-fetched. They have found similar results in bird species.

So, I wonder if you take a cow from the South and put him with a heard from the North, will they be able to understand him? Heh.

Blogs From Afar

Remember Fatima, our favorite unfortunate Lebanese homeowner?

She's got her own blog now, chroniclling her latest adventures in real estate.

And following his victory in Lebanon, Nasrallah has decided to start his own blog as well, covering life as the leader of a *cough* honorable, *cough* peaceful, *hack* legitimate organization that has *sputter* nothing to do with terrorism.

Coming Soon: Hezbollah!

And we let these animals walk away with a U.N. sanctioned "victory."

Arabs CANNOT Be Anti-Semitic?!?

This story from the Arab News is a farce! If this guy weren't serious, it'd be a laugh riot.

I will reproduce the story here in its entirety... Although the entire article is a display of moronacy, all bold type is my emphasis on statements of particular stupidity.

Arabs Can’t Be Anti-Semites
Khaled Almaeena,

Last week I wrote about the phone call from an Italian friend who asked me whether Islam and Muslims were characterized by fascist tendencies or beliefs. His query came as a result of US President George W. Bush’s unfortunate and ill-considered use of the phrase “Islamic fascists.”

Inaccurate and incorrect as the phrase is, it was not born from the brain of Bush — or even from the brains of his speechwriters. It was first used soon after Sept. 11, 2001, by Christopher Hitchens, a former diehard Marxist who is now a mainstay of the American neocons.

As a neocon, Hitchens enjoys great privileges and is a member in good standing of the media group which regularly attacks Muslims and Islam. His popularity is great in both neocon and Zionist circles. Included among those he is close to are Daniel Pipes, Richard Perle, David Horowitz — all closely associated with the American administration and its destructive and internationally unpopular policies over the last few years.

The word “fascist” seems to have been used because the Bush administration and its sycophants (the neocons, evangelists, extreme right-wingers and the Zionist lobby) have this false and preposterous idea that Islam wants to take over the world. They are convinced that Muslims want to conquer the entire world by force and convert everyone to Islam by the sword!

Have they drawn this conclusion based on what they know of the terrorists’ beliefs and practices or on the beliefs and practices of the 99.99 percent of Muslims who are not terrorists? And while, as always, our Arab media focuses on trivialities, their media is slowly and insidiously planting negative ideas about Arabs and their alleged anti-Semitism.

How, I wonder, can Arabs be anti-Semitic? They are in fact themselves Semites; the word derives from one of the sons of Noah — in English Shem — who was the ancestor of both Jews and Arabs. The Oxford English Dictionary defines “Semite” as “people who speak a Semitic language, including in particular the Jews and Arabs.” In other words, it would be highly unusual for Arabs to be anti-Semites though they might well be anti-Zionists. But that is not the same thing.

In order to combat the lies and half-truths about Islam and Muslims, we need our own researchers. And we have very few indeed. We Arabs, for whatever reasons, are not known for funding or encouraging research unless we are fairly sure what the end result will be. Nor do we have enough people who are fluent in other languages. For example, how many Arabs are fluent in Hebrew? Nowhere near the number of Israeli Jews who are fluent in Arabic.

Of people who say they have doctorates from this or that university, we have many. Unfortunately, the holders of such doctorates can do little except demand special consideration because of their alleged academic excellence.

We need researchers who are able to state — and back up the statement with facts and evidence — that “Zionists are often anti-Semites.” Because that is a fact. The Zionists, by and large, are Ashkenazi Jews which means they are of Central or Eastern European descent. The great majority of Israeli Jews today are Ashkenazi and it is they who control the country and, in the past, it was they who made the rules and regulations and government policies. They do not always consider their Sephardic brothers — Jews of Spanish, Portuguese, North African or Middle Eastern descent — their equals.

After World War II, the Ashkenazi Jews poured into Palestine, dreaming of a new life and brainwashed by traditional myths and legends; it was of no importance to them that the land they poured into was populated by Arab Semites who had lived there for thousands of years. At one point, during the British Mandate in Palestine, there was surprisingly only one Jewish family in Jerusalem.

A British researcher, Tanya Hsu, who has done a great deal of work in this field and has suffered a lot in the process, believes that an approach using accurate information would go a long way toward opening people’s minds. “I am always surprised when talking with people in the West who do not understand that one cannot become Semitic by merely learning Hebrew,” she says. “If I speak Arabic, am I now a Semite also? Until the late 20th century, Hebrew was a dead language, revived by Zionists seeking to claim the land of Israel. Most Israeli Jews do not even appear to understand this fundamental flaw in their arguments.”

Unless we have a credible research center to highlight all this and to focus on the forced demographic changes in Palestine because of transplanting people from the ghettoes of Europe, we will never convince the poor, gullible Americans who have fallen victim to this web of lies. As Dresden James said: “When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.”

This unfortunately is what appears to have happened in America in the last 25-30 years. The media, Hollywood and any other means are used to create the picture of a country under attack, living in a “bad neighborhood” protecting its democracy “by having to suppress and kill women and children,” making the desert green (by stealing other people’s water) and a number of other things.

The latest attacks in Lebanon, the killing of 1,400 women and children, the callous destruction of property and infrastructure has all exposed these unsubstantiated claims and allegations for what they really are. Let our researchers do some work and expose them even more.

Location, Location, Location...

Those Cincinnati Bengals aren't just famous for losing games...

In Hamilton County, Ohio, a new tax is going up for a vote. It seems that there are too many criminals, and not enough jail space. Miscreants are being released prematurely due to lack of room... I say that their comfort should not be of particular concern, as they are criminals who spit on the rights of law-abiding citizens, but that's another discussion.

Rather than punish the hell out of criminals, thus deterring them from future deviant behavior, the taxpayer is expected to put up even more of their hard-earned, honestly made money to powder these animal's butts. It makes me sick.

Last In Line

A bus carrying only ugly people crashes into an oncoming truck, and everyone inside dies. As they stand at the Pearly Gates waiting to enter Paradise and meet their maker, God decides to grant each person one wish because of the grief they have experienced.

They're all lined up, and God asks the first one what the wish is. "I
want to be gorgeous," and so God snaps His fingers, and it is done. The second one in line hears this and says "I want to be gorgeous too." Another snap of His fingers and the wish is granted.

This goes on for a while with each one asking to be gorgeous, but when God is halfway down the line, the last guy in the line starts laughing.

When there are only ten people left, this guy is rolling on the floor,
laughing his head off.

Finally, God reaches this last guy and asks him what his wish will be.

The guy eventually calms down and says: "Make 'em all ugly again!!!"

"Submission Pt.II": Coming Soon!

You no doubt remember that almost two years ago, Theo Van Gogh was brutally shot, stabbed and mutilated by Dutch-born Muslim Mohammed (surprise) Bouyeri, 26, who could not tolerate his short film about Islam's degradation and brutalization of women. He could not tolerate the Truth.

Van Gogh was murdered as he cycled to work in broad daylight in front of witnesses. He was reported to have begged for mercy as he lay dying after sustaining several gunshot wounds, saying, "Can't we talk about this?"

Bouyeri shot him again, slit his throat and stabbed him, pinning a letter to his body.He was later arrested.

So much for diplomacy and reason. So much for the Religion of Peace.

Theo Van Gogh was not the only one behind the making of Submission. He directed and produced it, but it was conceived and written by a 35-year old woman, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Hirsi Ali is an apostate and a member of the Dutch Parliament. She was forced to go into hiding for three months following Theo Van Gogh's murder, as she was threatened in the note pinned to Van Gogh's body. She later returned to Parliament.

Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of Islam's treatment of women, calling Mohammed the 'Prophet' a "perverted tyrant."

She shook up Dutch politics by pointing to the blind spots in this tolerant democracy, like the murder of Muslim women who stray from the faith; so-called "honor killings."

"My accusation towards the Dutch society was, 'You think you are tolerant, but if you look behind those curtains in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, there are women who are abused. There are women who are taken to Morocco and Turkey and are killed there. They're murdered. And there are no records of those murders,'" says Hirsi Ali.

"I suppose some people would say we can't impose our alien laws on these new citizens,"

"That was the definition of tolerance before I came," says Hirsi Ali. "And now we are redefining that by saying, freeing these women, giving them a chance at life is not imposing Dutch will, or let's say Dutch values, on others. But it's protecting these individuals."

"They just don't get it, I think," says Hirsi Ali, who says her father thinks she's misguided. "The last time I spoke to my father, he told me that he believes that one day I will return to the faith."

Hirsi Ali is a bulldog. Although she was frightened by Theo's murder, she refuses to cower, and will start producing "Submission, Part II."

"By not making 'Submission Part II,' I would only be helping terrorists believe that if they use violence, they're rewarded with what they want," says Hirsi Ali.

Yummy Virgin Mary!

Chocolatier of the wealthy, Martucci Angiano has a new claim to fame: An appearance of the Virgin Mary in his chocolate.

From the AP:

Workers at Angiano's gourmet chocolate company, Bodega Chocolates, discovered under a vat a 2-inch-tall column of chocolate drippings that they believe bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary. Since the discovery Monday, Angiano's employees have spent much of their time hovering over the tiny figure, praying and placing rose petals and candles around it. "I was raised to believe in the Virgin Mary, but this still gives me the chills," Angiano said as she balanced the dark brown figure in her hand. "Everyone should see this." Kitchen worker Cruz Jacinto was the first to spot the lump of melted chocolate when she began her shift Monday cleaning up drippings that had accumulated under a large vat of dark chocolate. Chocolate drippings usually harden in thin, flat strips on wax paper, but Jacinto said she froze when she noticed the unusual shape of this cast-off: It looked just like the Virgin Mary on the prayer card she always carries in her right pocket.

So what do you think? Random occurrence? (I'm going with that one!) A fanatic seeing what they wish to interpret? Scam? Or is this a divine sign that chocolate is one of God's greatest gifts to mankind? (Hmm... I may have to go with THIS one! LOL!)

Just Make Sure To Use The Left Hand!

I'm not exactly shocked by this:

Iran Suspected of Attempts to Rearm Hezbollah Since Cease-Fire

Oh, and they're going through Syria and Turkey. Again, no big surprise!

It's Almost Here...

Seen at Glenn Beck's website:

Sounds like a good deal, huh? Just watch out for that fine print...

Bling On Your Grill

Check out the Grill! In this AP photo, we see Sebastian, a black long-haired Persian cat sporting gold crowns on his lower cuspids, which grew sticking out from his lips in an underbite similar to a bulldog's. Concerned that his cat's exposed teeth would be damaged, Dr. David Steele (a dentist from Alexandria, Ind.) had gold crowns made for his pet.

I'll bet this cat is even more haughty for it, too!

More Sunshine From Iran!

Iran said today, days before the self-imposed August 22nd deadline for an answer, that they would NOT give up their nuclear program. No surprise there, really.

But not to worry, folks, President Ahamdinejad released this statement:

"Today, we are fully mastering the nuclear fuel cycle for our peaceful atomic activities. It is a native technology... No one can take it away from us," he continued with, "The Iranian nation will not yield to pressure but is ready to resolve the nuclear issue through talks."

So now they want to talk? They're the ones with the stick: Iranian officials often say the country could weather sanctions and argue such measures would hurt the West more than Tehran by lifting already high oil prices to levels that would be unmanageable for industrialized economies.

The American People should be SCREAMING for oil independence from these thugs!

And does anyone else still think that Aug. 22nd may still hold some significance? Thousands of Lebanese citizens have taken to the streets chanting, "Lebanon won, Israel destroyed." In Iran, public celebrations of solidarity with their child, Hezbollah, are taking place in the streets of Tehran.

And while the celebration party for Hezbollah is taking place, an exhibition of more than 200 cartoons mocking the Holocaust opened in Iran Monday. It was spawned at the urging of Ahmadinejad. The 200 featured were the cream of the crop out of more than 1,200 entries.

You will of course remember the Mohammed cartoon debacle earlier this year. It is apparently okie-dokie to mock six million people who were systematically tortured and murdered in attempted genocide, but not to so much as draw a stick figure of old Mo the Pedophile.

Hypocrisy Most Foul.
I may as well get in on the cartoon warfare, too... So I would like to submit THIS picture for your viewing pleasure:

McKinney Flops The Race Card YET AGAIN!!!

Shying away from those Joooow-hating remarks that she made, Cynthia McKinney has opted for a new/old strategy... Blaming THE MAN!

McKinney said yesterday that the 'black community' should stand up and oppose electronic voting machines, because they are designed to steal elections form black voters.

Oh, geez... I think I need a drink, or a chocolate bar, or something to calm my nerves!

She also said that the State of Georgia shouldn't allow crossing over party lines in primary elections. WTFrick?!? SO WHY BOTHER SHOWING UP??? JUST VOTE FOR ME, McKINNEY!!! So now she doesn't want people to vote for whomever they choose? NOW who's stealing elections...?

Apparently unable to accept that voters are sick of her racist, cop-punching, 9-11 conspiracy theory antics, McKinney laid the blame for her loss not on herself, but on the voting machines used during the primaries while speaking at the National Dialogue and Revival for Social Justice in the Black Church. It was sponsored by the (You're going to be shocked....NOT!) Rev. Al Sharpton's group, the National Action Network.

Thank goodness this moonbat crazy is unemployed!

What Is A Girl Worth?

What is a girl worth? Is she a valuable member of society? Or is she a liability to her family, to be disposed of like garbage?

The Prime Minister of India, Monmohan Singh, called for parents in India to stop viewing their girls as commodities or economic liabilities and end the abortions of female fetuses... A.K.A.: BABIES!

In rural India, where girls are still required to have a high bride-price to be considered marriageable, abortions have become a common practice to ensure that a family will have more sons. Ultrasounds at four to five months of gestation reveal the sex of a BABY, and act as a perverted insurance policy for families who do not want too many girls.

Singh's voice comes as a call to sanity against a ghoulish practice.

"We must end the crime of female foeticide. We must eliminate gender disparity," Singh said in an address to the nation.

"We have a dream of an India in which every woman can feel safe, secure and empowered. Where our mothers, sisters and daughters are assured a life of dignity and personal security," he added.

A study by British medical journal The Lancet said this year that India may have lost 10 million unborn girls in the past 20 years, but Indian experts say the figure is not more than five million.

Under Indian law, tests to find out the gender of an unborn baby are illegal if not done for medical reasons, but the practice continues in what activists say is a flourishing multi-million dollar business.

Premier Singh urged parents not to neglect their girl children.

"It should be ensured that every young woman is educated and skilled and capable of guiding a new generation," he said.

Many men in rural India demand a dowry far beyond the financial means of a wife's family, and the new bride is often murdered by the groom when the family cannot meet his demands. Indian women's organizations put the figure of these murders at about 190 per day.

The disproportionate ratio of men to women brought about by female fetocide, coupled with bride-murder puts India into a humanitarian and population crisis.

Let us pray and act that India will resound with more voices such as the Premier's, and that their culture will evolve and change for the better!

Innocent Of Offense!

What do you see when you look at this little girl? A beautiful, doe-eyed child, or an object of offense?

A Single Drop Of Rain


Well, although it's no longer the same temperature as Hell outside, it hasn't rained for awhile. The hubby hasn't needed to mow the lawn for quite some time now, and the only thing green in my yard are the weeds! LOL!

I hope that the lawn greens up a bit for autumn.

The Littlest Shaheed?

When the news of the foiled airline bombing plot hit the news last week, did anyone else think it was odd that parents were being asked to taste (Eww) their children's formula?

Well, here's why. From the Daily Telegraph:

A HUSBAND and wife arrested in the British terror raids allegedly planned to take their six-month-old baby on a mid-air suicide mission.

Scotland Yard police are quizzing Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his 23-year-old wife Cossor over suspicions they were to use their baby's bottle to hide a liquid bomb.

The theory is one of the reasons security chiefs are now insisting mothers taste babies' milk at check-in desks before allowing them to take bottles aboard flights.

The pair are among up to 23 suspects being questioned over a plot to bring down nine airliners over five US cities, killing thousands of people in the air and on the ground.

Can you believe this? What God commands that you use your BABY as a tool to murder innocents?

And yet these animals' neighbors seem to be deeply entrenched in thier own dhimmitude.

Police spent yesterday combing through the Alis' east London housing commission flat for clues.

Cossor took her baby with her to the police station during last week's raids but her son is now being cared for by grandparents.

Cossor's grandfather, Nazir Ahmed, 84, said Abdula had travelled to Pakistan about four weeks ago.

"We didn't understand what the hurry was and why he needed to go," Mr Ahmed said.

A neighbour at the flats where the married couple lived said he would be stunned if claims were true.

"I simply cannot believe he could have been involved in a plot like this. He is religious and seemed to love his family," the neighbour said.

"I would never have dreamed he could have been involved in anything like this."

A family friend of Cossor said she had known the arrested mother 12 years and believed her to be innocent.

"I think it is a case of mistaken identity. The last thing she'd be interested in is terrorism. They are just simple day-to-day people going about their own business," she said.

Police in England have reportedly recovered bottles containing peroxide, including some with false bottoms, from a recycling centre close to the homes of some of the arrested suspects.

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. The "Religion of Peace", using infants to kill the infidel. Let's wipe these walking abominations that are Muslims off of the face of the Earth!

UPDATE: Florida Abortion Clinic Loses License

In an update to my previous post: Punch The Clock, Kill A Baby... Just Another Typical Day At The Abortion Clinic...

From Life Site:

(Red type mine)

Florida Abortion Clinic Loses License Over Murder of Born-Alive Infant
By Peter J. Smith

HIALEAH, Florida, August 10, 2006 ( - Officials in the Florida city of Hialeah have revoked the occupational status of an abortion clinic that is the subject of a police investigation into the murder of an infant born-alive on the premises.

According to the Miami Herald, at Hialeah's city council meeting Tuesday, city officials revoked A GYN Diagnostic Center's occupational license, effectively putting an end to the clinic's operations. However, the clinic pre-empted the city's move by voluntarily surrendering its operating license to the state's Agency for Health Care Administration, ending its ability to operate in Florida. So they apparently know that they are guilty as sin and in a world of trouble.

''What led them to surrender their license, we can't answer,'' said Lorena Bravo, a Hialeah assistant city attorney according to the Herald.

The city acted to pull the clinic's license over credible allegations that abortion employees murdered a child born alive in their waiting room at 23 weeks gestation. The doctor was not in the office at the time to legally kill the child before birth. That sentence puts it very succinctly, IMHO: LEGALY KILL THE CHILD BEFORE BIRTH.

City police chief Rolando Bolanos had previously ordered the clinic closed July 29 pending a full investigation.

The investigation began when city police received an anonymous tip that abortion clinic employees had murdered the born alive son of an 18-year-old woman who had been waiting for the abortionist to arrive on July 20. Police learned that clinic employees placed the infant in a bag, and walked away. The baby boy was found dead 9 days later in a biohazard container. It makes me want to scream that such a defenseless baby had to endure such a cruel murder! What made the tipster call police after the fact instead of calling an ambulance right then and there? Was it initial cowardice and delayed morality?

The police and State Attorney's office are conducting an investigation to determine whether there is enough evidence to constitute a murder charge. An autopsy has been concluded, but the results have not yet been made available to the public.

''The State Attorney's Office is still reviewing the case, along with the Medical Examiner,'' said Mark Overton, Hialeah's Deputy Police Chief on Tuesday according to the Herald. ``We are awaiting test results. Once they are back, they will be making a decision on what charges will be filed, if any.'' I would say that if the autopsy shows the aveoli in the lungs were inflated, we have a slam-dunk murder case.

If there is enough evidence for trial, the employees involved may be charged with murder under Florida law on account of the protections accorded to a baby under the Born-Alive Infants Protection Law. Under the BAIPL a child born alive at any stage of development is entitled to full legal protection and all necessary medical intervention. God, I hope they are! They deserve to pay for what they did! It's too bad that they will never pay the price that the little baby did!

Mike Wallace Takes on Amahdinejad

I am blogging while watching the Mike Wallace interview of Iranian President Ahmadinejad. I will be noting things that catch my interest, as much as my limited typing skills will allow.

After only five minutes, I am flabbergasted! Lebanon, according to Pres.A, is simply defending it's land, refuses to answer questions regarding Iranian arms to the Hezbollah, and claims that the UN is in the pocket of America, and Mike Wallace is a Zionist propagandist, not a reporter.

Unbelievable. Oh, and BTW... This is being translated by Pres. A's personal interpreter. I'm sure that all of this is reeaaly honest...

"This is the era of thought, dialogue and cultural exchanges"

WTF?!? HYPOCRITE!!! Isn't this the guy who wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth?

Ahmadinejad is attempting to set the pace of this interview, telling Wallace what the will and will not discuss. Wallace, to his credit, so far seems not to be holding any punches.

Ahmadinejad says the Israeli government is "fabricated." He implies denial of the Holocaust, saying "where did it take place?" Um... Nazi Germany?

I am struck by how he shies away from wearing the usual military uniform or Islamic garb that most leaders of that part of the world wear, and by his deceptive demeanor. He has an oily smile, and fires back at Wallace with sarcastic comments.

Now, Ahmadinejad says that the American military is killing Iraqis on a daily basis. He also says that Saddam's part of Iraq's history is past. He calls America the "Great Oppressor." The Hubby says that comment sounds very much like an old Commie line.

*Break for commercial*

Wallace asks what Amahdinejad thinks of Pres. Bush. He refuses to answer, and Wallace hammers at him, asking if he has the courage to answer it. Go Wallace!

Ahmadinejad thinks that he should save American culture without using threats, occupation, and derides our healthcare and prison system. He alludes to the letter sent to Bush six months ago, saying that he expected Bush to change his behavior and take a new perspective on war, and that he should love all people.

WTF?!? HYPOCRITE!!! Again, "wipe Israel off the face of the Earth!"

Wallace hammers away again, reminding Ahamadinejad that he despises the "Zionists."

Ahmadinejad put in his letter to Bush that he should follow the teachings of Christ more closely, rather than be a killer in the Middle East. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Ahmadinejad says that Bush's low approval ratings is a bad thing... I suppose that when the people are too scared of you to disapprove...

Now he speaks of his hobbies. Like I care. He jokes about combing his hair and looking his best.

Now he claims that the US cut relations with Iran, and refuses to answer the question Wallace poses about if he would be willing to resume relations with the US, after 27 years of not having them. He has refused to give a straightforward answer four times now...

We talk down to him... And the American government just needs to change their behavior and EVERYTHING WILL BE SOLVED... He sounds rather like a Democrat, huh?

Ahmadinejad says he must conclude the interview because it is time for night prayers...

Wallace asked about the suicide bombers brigade. Ahmadinejad gets visibly nervous, sits up in his chair and speaks faster. He says it is to defend themselves against America, and that he is concluding the interview.

There you have it, dear readers: The leader of Iran's interview with Mike Wallace. I am defiantly not comforted by what I saw...

A Nasty Virus

It kind of pales in comparison, huh?
