Nonchalant Attitudes Concerning Penn State: Despicable and Discusting


I don’t care about Penn State’s tarnished imaged. I don’t care about their football program. I don’t care how many years Joe Paterno devoted. Those kids and what happened should trump all of it. I can’t believe how many people I see in this country that care more about Joe Paterno’s career and the school’s image over what happened to those KIDS.

I am so disgusted with the nonchalant attitudes concerning the R-A-P-E of these children. No one bothered to call the police. I feel as though the country has gone to hell. People care more about their football, loyalty, years devoted than they do about children being R-A-P-E-D. I am literally sick to my stomach disgusted to the point of throwing up.

Gardasil is back in the News

Vaccines that work to prevent cancer and STDS are a good thing. It has nothing to do with encouraging sex out of wedlock.

How irresponsible of Michele Bachmann to tell the whole world that Gardasil causes mental retardation. She made some horrible excuse about misunderstandings and I knew at that moment she needed to get out of the race. What an idiot!

Furthermore, I have no respect for anyone who tries to connect important medical advances to sexual promiscuity. Any time the medical community can prevent cancer and/or STDS I consider that a good thing.

Of course the controversy has come back up because they are saying that Gardasil can benefit boys too. That’s AWESOME!!

The other thing that ticks me off is people who go to church who scoff and pretend that cancer, genital warts, STDS, etc...are some sort of punishment from God. Oh you don’t want to get me started.

Vaccinating your children has nothing to do with immoral sexual promiscuity. It’s interesting that a vaccine to possibly prevent cancer is okay but you throw in a sexually transmitted disease as rampant as the Human Papillomavirus and people start freaking out. Go figure!?

Thank You Paul Ryan!



It's a national disgrace that the Senate has not produced a budget, as of October 16th, 2011, in 900 days. Senate Democrats, during this time of national crisis, failed even to present a budget plan — in open defiance of the law and the public they serve. Senate Majority Leader Reid said it would be "foolish" to have a budget. The reason for this evasion is clear: Democrat leaders in Washington think it is politically foolish to commit publicly to the kind of tax increases and health-care rationing that would be required to sustain their vision of ever-expanding federal government.

Tea Party vs Occupy Wall Street



They keep talking about getting out there and having their voices heard. What did they think the Tea Party was doing? We were having our voices heard. Yet they call us “racists” and “domestic terrorists” go figure!?

Our government had no business bailing anyone out. If a company goes under they should experience the consequences naturally. Government throwing our money to companies in the name of “green” is all wrong too. The government doesn’t decide what is best for us.

This administration is trying to take control of every aspect of our lives. People are speaking up in the name of R and D instead of in the name of the issues. I’m tired of Government standing in the way.

I find it disturbing when an Occupy Wall Street protester looks into the camera and says that he wants ME to pay for his college degree. I don’t think so! Get a job and work your butt off and pay for your own college degree. Nobody owes you a living! You have to get out there and make things happen for yourself in spite of the audacity of Government and all the rich butt-heads that think it’s cute to avoid paying their taxes.

In all of my adult years...statistics and unemployment rates NEVER kept me from working…EVER and I don't expect my next door neighbor to pay for my education.

Hat Tip: Conservative Daily News

I Agree! It's Your Decision

Wall Street Butt-Heads

For all their contrived displays of independence and non-conformism, the Occupy Wall St. protesters can’t even properly be called original. For one thing, Communism, their preferred ideology, was thoroughly discredited more than two decades ago, while most of the occupiers were still in diapers. For another, virtually their entire list of grievances against crony capitalism and bank bailouts has been plagiarized straight from the tea party’s platform, which is now nearly three years old.

If they had such a principled opposition to bailouts and corporatism, where were these occupiers in 2008 and 2009? Where were they in 2010? Rather than waiting around for hope and change, perhaps Occupy Wall St. should have been on Main St. with the tea party protesting bailouts before their disastrous economic consequences became readily apparent.

These shallow, disenchanted hipsters have confused informed political activism with tweeting trite condemnations of “capitalism” from their iPhones. While I hardly expect intellectual consistency from such a group, much less an understanding of history, economics or human nature, it seems worth taking a moment to list just a few of the times FreedomWorks stood up against exactly the kind of cronyism the occupiers are now protesting.

We have to stand up for America


I was at work in Clarksville Indiana and I got a phone call from a coworker that a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. I turned on Fox News and was shocked at what was happening. I knew we would be at war. I will never forget that day. And I will never forget how brave the 1st responders were. I try and not let 9/11 change my life because if I did the terrorist will be happy. But it has. It has shown me we have to stand up for America. If we don't it will encourage attacks.

10 On Tues: HPV & Politics

1. Getting a little sick and tired of hearing Bachmann referring to girls as sweet and innocent when referencing the HPV vaccine. I don’t believe Govt should mandate the HPV vaccine but I sure wish folks would educate themselves on it.

2. My oldest is vaccinated and I plan to have my 7 and 5 year old vaccinated when the time comes. Being able to prevent genital warts and cervical cancer is huge in my book.

3. You won’t be tarnished if you say the words “cervical” “genital” or “sex” – educate yourselves. They are not bad words.

4. Michele Bachmann and her diarrhea of the mouth. I'm officially done with her. I won't even consider her for secretary of state! She has taken the HPV vaccine and she has annihilated it.

5. People have turned this discussion into one about condoms, birth control and sex education. Any time the words “cervical” “genital” or “sex” come into play people freak out instead of educating themselves. The discussion turns into one of morality and promiscuous behavior. Any time you can prevent viruses from wreaking havoc on someone’s life is a good thing.

6. Bachmann: Gardasil causes “mental retardation”

7. I am done with Michele Bachmann. Done. Done. Done. Done. Done.

8. Everyone keeps saying Sarah Palin should run. If she was gonna run she should have been involved in all of these Presidential debates. It’s okay that’s she’s out there doing her own thing – she’s entitled. But, she’s not someone I would consider voting for and I’m getting a little tired of the prospect of her running for the office popping up. She’s one that needed to poop or get off the pot a long time ago.

9. The people that need to back off and stop wasting our time are Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, and Barack Obama. They all get a big fat NO from me.

10. Mitt Romney is sitting at the top of the see-saw and I’m about to hop off so his butt hits the ground HARD. He is very close to being a big fat NO too.

Crazies, Haters & Fanatics

No one I met expressed hatred for the president. A few had voted for him, and others, like Christy Smith, said they were deeply moved when he was elected. Many others opposed him all along. But now, the predominant mood is deep distrust. They believe Obama will raise their taxes, that he will blow up the health care system, that he will weaken America's defenses....You've probably heard descriptions of the marchers as crazies and haters and fanatics. Perhaps there were some in the crowd. Far more important, though, was the very presence of so many everyday Americans protesting in Washington.

What did Barack Obama and his party's leadership on Capitol Hill do to bring doctors and truck drivers together in common cause on the streets of the nation's capital? More than anything, these people are afraid that the new president is running the country of a cliff.

Quote of the Week

Where was God on 9/11?


Not long after the horrible events of September 11, 2001 unfolded before our eyes, variations of an email titled “Where was God on 9/11?” began circulating that gave a bit of perspective to such a soul-numbing tragedy.

Have you ever thought, "Where was God on 9/11 when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked?" Well, I know where my God was on the morning of September 11, 2001, and He was very busy!

He was discouraging people from taking those four flights. Together they could accommodate more than 1,000 passengers, yet there were only 266 aboard. He was on those four flights giving the terrified passengers the ability to stay calm. Not one of the people who was called by a loved one on one of the hijacked planes mentioned that passengers were panicked, nor was there any screaming in the background. And on one of the flights, God gave strength to the passengers to overcome the hijackers.

God was also busy creating obstacles to prevent people who worked in the WTC from getting to work on time. The work day had begun, more than 50,000 people worked in the two towers, yet only 20,000 were at their desks. On that beautiful morning, God created scores of unexpected traffic delays, subway delays, and commuter train delays. A PATH train packed with commuters was stopped at a signal just short of the WTC and was able to return to Jersey City. And far more meetings were scheduled elsewhere than was usual.

God held up each of the two mighty towers for a half hour so that the people on the lower floors could get out. And when He finally let go, He caused the towers to fall inward rather than to topple over, which would have killed so many more people. The foundations of six surrounding buildings were demolished by the fall of the towers, but God held them up for many hours until all the occupants were safely evacuated.

And when the WTC and Pentagon buildings went down, my God picked up almost 3,500 of His children and carried them to their home for all eternity. He also sat down and cried that 19 of His children could have so much hate in their hearts, that they did not choose him, but another god that doesn’t exist, and now they are lost forever.

He sent people trained in dealing with earthly disasters to save those that were injured. And he sent in thousands of others to help in any way they were needed. And He brought people together across the world in a way that moved thousands to tears and hundreds of thousands to prayer—and caused millions to turn to the one true living God.

He still isn’t finished. Every day He comforts those who lost loved ones. He is encouraging others to reach out to those who don’t know Him or believe in Him. He is giving the leaders of our great nation the strength and conviction to do the right thing, to follow His will, not a popular poll.

So if anyone ever asks, "Where was your God on 9/11?" you can say, "He was everywhere! And, in fact, he is everywhere today and every day." Without a doubt, this was the worst catastrophe most of us have ever seen. I can’t imagine getting through such a difficult time without God at my side. Without God, life would be hopeless.

Additionally…

As you might know, the head of one company survived 9/11 because he took his son to kindergarten.

Another fellow is alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.

Another lady was late because her alarm clock didn’t go off on time.

One was late as a result of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.

One more survivor missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.

One’s car wouldn’t start.

One went back to answer the telephone.

One had a child that dawdled and didn’t get ready as soon as he should have.

One couldn’t get a taxi.

The one that, struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, went to work by his usual way but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.

Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone…all the little things that annoy me….I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can’t seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don’t get mad or frustrated; God is at work watching over you.

May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.

Original Author unknown – there were so many variations that circulated it’s difficult to say where it originated. If you know, I’d love to give proper credit where it’s due.

Almighty and merciful God,
You cannot be understood

You cannot be accepted

Look upon our painful
human condition tried
by cruel acts of terror and death,
comfort your children and open
our hearts to hope, so that our
time may again know days of
serenity and peace.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Free Stuff

The folks who are getting the free stuff don't like the folks who are paying for the free stuff because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

The folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop and the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting.

The people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff, have told the people who are receiving the free stuff that the people who are paying for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

The people who are getting the free stuff, have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free-stuff-giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded because the voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776 235 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff.

Ford is that Company for Me



I wasn't gonna buy another car that was bailed out by our government. I was gonna buy from a manufacturer that's standing on their own. Win lose or draw that's what America's about. Taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail you gotta pick yourself up and go back to work.

The illegal immigrant working on my neighbor’s house just raided our vegetable garden. He was sneaking himself some cucumbers. I stepped outside and asked him what he was doing. He said something in Spanish to me. I told him, “Go ahead. You can take it.” I’m frustrated. My heart breaks. Are these people going to hurt me? Are they hungry? What else was I supposed to say? I wanted him to know he could take it BUT why do you have to steal it?

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

How many free passes does this president get?

How much uncertainty is Obama providing the market every time he opens his mouth? How much golf does Obama need to play before he can come up with a job plan 3 years into his presidency? Why prance around the country talking about it if Obama's not going to do something about it?

The only thing Obama has managed to do is turn 1 TRILLION into 4 TRILLION and you want to know why there is so much uncertainty going on? Nobody has confidence in our country or our government. We have been DOWN-graded and people are still making excuses for him.

Why would he WASTE tax payer money prancing around the country to talk about JOBS and the ECONOMY in a Canadian-made tour bus? It’s do as I say but not as I do mantra. Obama can’t pass go because he does not possess the leadership or the ability.

Everyone was so anxious to have their first black president. So many are having voter’s remorse right now and I can’t say that I blame them. I expected more from Obama. I expected him to take this job that was entrusted to him a little more seriously.

“Yes We Can” --- Really? Budget and Spending, Healthcare Reform, Fundamental Tax Reform, Energy and Environment, Workplace Freedom, School Choice, Red Tape, Hidden Taxes and Regulation, Medicare, Social Security and Entitlement Reform…these are all issues that need to be addressed. You can’t just pick and choose which ones our Govt gets to go skating on…and yes Obama is the president.

The buck stops with Obama just as it does with every other sitting president and I don’t give a rats butt what color he is!!!

I Knew Then This Was Beyond Huge


I was at work, in my dental office. Patients were not due for another 30 minutes. Becky our receptionist was making coffee and came into my operatory and said I needed to see this. We were watching the film from the first plane hitting the tower over and over.

All of a sudden while they were showing the smoke coming from the 1st tower, we saw the 2nd plane hit. I remember being very confused thinking how did they do that. Becky said it was not a trick, another plane hit. I knew then this was beyond huge.

The majority of our patients that day did not come in or called to cancel. The few that did make it did not get any services done. We all sat watching the televisions in the break room, waiting area and doctor’s office. Patients kept apologizing for coming in, but they seemed to be stuck on automatic.

Only one patient was actually seen because he was in so much pain. He cried the entire procedure, even after we turned on the nitrous. I kept rubbing his arm and letting him know the anesthesia would take affect shortly. He said he was scared from all the news and he was only there because of the pain. He wanted to go home and be with his family. I wanted to go home and be with my family too.

By the time I got home with my husband I was in such shock. If I slept more than 3 hours that night I would be surprised.

I'll Never Forget


I was lying in bed. My husband got up to get ready for work and saw it on TV. He brought the baby in the room to me and said, "Get up and go watch TV. I have to go to work. I love you and I don't know when I'll be home". (He was an aviation ordnance man at Naval Strike Air Warfare Center). It was such a sad moment in history. I'll never forget the senses of people in the windows of the towers or those jumping from the towers. What a horrible place to be to have to make a decision like that.

Obama’s new phrase should be, “No we can’t.” The question was.. “What has liberalism done for the black community.” I’ll answer that question.. “not a damn thing!”

Charlie Rangel is special.

What THE!?

When is Obama going to learn that you can’t continue to raise taxes because you went on a spending spree? The American People can NOT sustain it. Obama wants to put another stimulus package in place. What THE!?

He’s the real life walking talking definition of INSANITY.

BTW, MSNBC is the biggest crock-o-poop! Rachel Maddow is a delusional left liberal loon! lol

I was flipping through the channels and saw that she was ranting about something so I decided to stop and listen to her. It was all about Rick Perry, racism, Tea Party, Republicans and what a wonderful plan Obama is going to share next month. Really? Next Month? She sounded like a fool.

The only thing that has changed is that we are worse off than we were before AND we've been downgraded to a double A credit rating.

Thank You for nothing Barack Obama!!

The Opposite of Freedom

There are lots of "HIMS" and "HERS" running around taking advantage of the system that was set up to FAIL because nobody knows how to do for themselves any more. Who taught us that? The Government did and all in the name of CONTROL which is the opposite of FREEDOM.

Barnes & Noble Called Me Today!


For those that have been following my Barnes & Noble saga they finally called me today. Those explicit adult only books are coming off the wall that makes up the children’s section. They are going to move them to another location in the store.

It’s going to take a few days to transition the books off that questionable wall by the bathroom that makes up the children’s section but they plan to get it done. They are going to plan it out with the field merchandiser and the project should be completed by next week.

The district manager could not have been more nice or professional about it. He agreed that you shouldn’t have to pass this questionable material as you access the children’s section.

I also found out that I am not the only one that has complained about this particular store layout. Apparently people have been complaining to the store manager since March. Some of these complaints were not formally hand written so they are working on opening up the lines of communication between the managers with regard to verbal complaints too. That’s good to know!

Tim C. plans on coming into town next week to check on the progress. I’m impressed. We also discussed the fact that there are always going to be complaints about the nature of the subject matter. No matter where you put these books people are going to complain. I let Tim C. know I didn’t have an issue with the subject matter. My issue was that it made up the children’s section and our kids should not have access to this material upon entering the children’s area. He emphatically agreed!

At the end of the day it’s up to the parents to parent their children so if they allow their children to wander around the book store that is not the fault of Barnes & Noble.

I am relieved that Barnes & Noble took the time to call me back. I am impressed that they agree with me and are making changes to that particular store’s layout. That tells me that Barnes & Noble thinks this issue is important and I appreciate it because we really do enjoy shopping at that book store as a family.

NOW…next week when I visit again I hope to see the changes have been implemented. As a matter of fact I will wait a couple of weeks before I head back to the store with my family. I hope to be able to capture the wall with my camera and report back to my trusty readers what a great job Barnes and Noble is doing.

While I think it’s important to report injustices I also think it’s equally important to report all the kudos and positive efforts people make to do what’s right.

Until then…stay tuned.

It has been a little over one week and I still have not received a telephone call from a single Barnes & Noble representative. Go figure!? Do they think I'm going to go away or forget about this issue? No, I'm not going to go away. In fact, I am not letting this issue go. Placing sexually explicit adult books as part of the children's section in their store is not acceptable.

I would appreciate it if a Barnes & Noble would take this seriously and have a district or regional manager call my house so I don’t have to start from the beginning with some random Barnes & Noble customer service employee.

To God Be the Glory ~Oprah


I have been watching Oprah Winfrey since I was sixteen years old. I haven’t tuned in the last few years for personal reasons. I am glad I watched her last show today. I was happy when I heard her say, “To God Be the Glory” as she walked off stage for the last time. I am curious to see what Oprah will do next.

Barnes & Noble Follow-Up

My Note to Barnes & Noble:

I wanted to let someone at Barnes & Noble know that your location at The Crossroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska has an inappropriate collection of sexually explicit adult books outlining the Children's section. Literally, you have to walk by "Tickle His Pickle" and "365 Naughty Nights" when you take your child to the Children's area of the store. These books outline the wall that makes up the Children's section. I'm hoping someone at Barnes & Noble has the authority fix this problem because it's inappropriate and unacceptable.

My Note to Barnes & Noble:

Case #XXX

I have enclosed three photos that will fully explain the point I am trying to make. The reason I have contacted Barnes & Noble via e-mail is because the conversation with a Barnes & Noble supervisor as well as a Barnes & Noble Manager was not satisfactory to me. I would prefer it if a district manager or a regional manager called me as I do not wish to speak to any of the store managers from that particular location. They were extremely rude and unprofessional in their handling of the situation.

What Is Wrong With Barnes & Noble?




What’s going on in your local Barnes & Noble Book Store?

Do you have this inappropriate mess right next to the Children’s section of your local Barnes & Noble Book Store?

Do you have to walk by “Tickle His Pickle” or “365 Naughty Nights” when you take your child to Story Time at Barnes & Noble?

I want to encourage EVERYONE with a camera phone or Kodak Camera to carry it with you the next time you’re at Barnes and Noble and take pictures if you see the Children’s section surrounded by smut!

If this explicit inappropriate adult material is close to the bathroom at Barnes and Noble then make sure you take a picture of that too. In my case the bathroom was right next to the Children’s section so it’s completely unavoidable either way.

This is a developing story…so stay tuned.

What happened to the Tea Party?


What has happened to the Tea Party? I’m to the point where I don’t even want to use the #TeaParty hash tag on my Twitter Profile any more.

In the beginning it seemed as though like-minded people were coming together for a common cause: Traditional Conservatism, Less Government and the idea that we are Taxed Enough Already. Isn’t that what TEA stands for?

I’m seeing so-called Tea Partiers arguing about non-issues. I cannot believe people are still talking about Obama's birth certificate. They are still overwhelmingly debating this non-issue. Seriously? Come on!!!

I’ve also witnessed a lot of Tea Party in-fighting going on. What for? Why are Tea Partiers fighting with each other?

Then I hear that the original Tea Party is not the same Tea Party that some politicians have latched on to. Really? I thought the Tea Party was supposed to be one united cohesive movement of people who believe that we are Taxed Enough Already?

I’m not sure I can associate myself with the Tea Party any more. It’s getting out of hand. People are losing their way. I can’t stand what this country is turning into. The extreme sides of both aspects and/or political parties I find to be disgusting.

I’m to the point where I have to question your intelligence if you are debating these non-issues. That’s pretty sad. Then there are those that want to make EVERYTHING about race or racism. Seriously? I’m over THAT too!!! As you already know I AM NOT A COLOR.

I have a lot of reorganizing to do. The wind is shifting here at Casa Divapalooza and THAT is all I’m gonna say…FOR NOW.

I Am Not A Color


My name is not Angela ‘White’ or Angela ‘Caucasian’. My name is Angela. I am not a color. I’m a person. I’m not a color. I’m a human being. If people want to see me as a color then they have a problem. What Dr. Martin Luther King said in his ‘I have a dream’ speech was not meant to become a double standard. I AM NOT A COLOR. I am a person. I should not have to photo-shop my skin color in order to be taken seriously. Racism is found e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e and not just the things that you don’t like. Bad behavior is just that…BAD BEHAVIOR…doesn’t matter when you were born…It’s not a color. Evil is not a color. Good is not a color. I’m pretty sick and tired of e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g being about race. The human race is the only race I know. Skin color is not the total sum of what makes us who we are. Every creed and every nation has had stress, trials and tribulations. FAITH, HOPE and LOVE transcend ethnicity.

May Day 2011: Osama Bin Laden is Dead. Where were you?


Where were you when you heard that Osama Bin Laden was dead? I was sitting in my TV room next to my husband. We were watching Iron Man 2. My brother texted the news and we immediately flipped on the news channels.

The news media has been frustrating for a long time now. We kept flipping through the channels because most of them didn’t even have all the facts and they were trying to report on something they knew nothing about.

Whatever happened to keeping your YAP shut until you have confirmation of the facts? Trying to make guesses as to what happened so you can remain cutting edge makes you look really dumb.

We finally settled on watching ABC.

All I could think of was WOW. This calls for some extra celebrating! We had just spent the day with family to honor my nephew's first holy communion. It made me think of the day Saddam Hussein was captured. That was the same day my middle child was born.

You have to know this is not over. They will attempt to retaliate. This is how terrorists operate. We need to stay alert.

Obama did a GOOD job with his statement. He needed to get that sucker right and he did. My husband saw his girls peaking around the corner as he was walking to the podium at the White House. I thought that was cute.

It’s good to know that everyone connected to 9/11 has been vindicated and justice has been served.

I wish I could be at the White House or NYC Times Square celebrating!!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!! Kudos to our military!!! Props to Obama!!! Hat Tip to George W. Bush!!! We will never ever forget 9/11!!!

I must tell you that the conspiracy theories floating around out there on the internet and in social networking media is ridiculous. I cannot believe how easily distracted people are. I am really beginning to loath the hard fringe LEFT and the hard fringe RIGHT. People who are easily fooled by these distractions I have no time for.

You need to start thinking for yourself and CUT the CRAP.

Our Armed Forces are our heroes!!! They have sacrificed and put everything on the line to get the job done!!! George W. Bush AND Barack Obama get the credit AND a JOB WELL DONE. Yes!!! Whether you love them or hate them they BOTH get the credit. It’s pretty obvious to me that they are communicating with one another in spite of their difference so what does THAT tell you?

Really everyone...we don’t have time for this partisan nonsense. Every time you see someone saying something over the top change the channel. You need to look at the news objectively and ask yourselves, “are they reporting the facts or are they full of it?” Try not to shoot from the hip until you have a chance to really think about what’s going on without getting your cues from commentators OR reporters who haven’t bothered to obtain all of the facts. If they can’t admit they don’t have all the answers then change the channel. If they are ranting and raving about the right or the left then change the channel. Think for yourselves people!!!

Where were you when you heard that Osama Bin Laden was dead? Leave a comment and let me know where you were and what your thoughts are on all of this.

Never Forget. Where were You on 9.11.2001 and what were you doing? What were you thinking? How has 9.11.2001 impacted your life?
