Storm Relief: Romney's A Bigger Liar Than I Thought

 
Last night, I posted about Mitt Romney's misguided photo-op involving donated food for victims of Hurricane Sandy. But I was unaware that a Mormon bishop would actually stoop low enough to send his aides to Walmart with 5,000 dollars for goods to use as props for pictures, even after the Red Cross specifically asked for cash and blood! Then, when the Red Cross told the Romney campaign that the food donations could not be used at this time, they threw them away. Instead of washing clean dishes and posing with goods that will never make it through West Virginia during a blizzard warning, the Red Cross suggested grocery store gift cards......but it is harder to pose with grocery store gift cards. If the Mormon Church is really all about sweetness and goodness, they will excommunicate Mitt Romney after this stunt. If Mitt Really wants to help, why doesn't he just help? Quietly? Without telling anyone? He certainly has enough money to just make a quiet donation, and then move forward with whatever pandering he still intends to do, while pushing to dismantle FEMA.

Mitt Romney Panders At The Expense Of Storm Victims

 
Mormon Republican, Mitt Romney, doesn't stop. He said he was going to stop campaigning and leave everyone alone because of Hurricane Sandy, but he went ahead and had his pandering session anyway, and renamed it a "storm relief effort". Here's the problem: the Red Cross needs donations of cash and blood. He is collecting food and other goods, which currently cannot be transported from Ohio to the places that would need it if the Red Cross were able to use it. The people who showed up with goods were told to wait until he arrived, and pose with him for pictures while giving the items, personally, to Mitt Romney. Had Joseph Smith ever heard of a pharisee?

Here's a description of what went on: "The event itself was billed as a “storm relief” benefit, and the Romney campaign asked supporters to bring with them food and other goods to donate to victims of the storm. But soon, reporters poked holes in the campaign’s explanation for staging the rally. First, the relief event was scheduled for the same time and location as a recently canceled political rally. Then, photos emerged, showing that donors were asked to wait to drop off their goods until Romney arrived to accept them himself, suggesting a photo op not unlike the one his running mate Paul Ryan staged earlier this month in a soup kitchen. And Salon noticed that the targeted recipient of all of the donations — the Red Cross — doesn’t even accept most of what the Romney campaign collected in Ohio."....thinkprogress

Here's a picture of the condition of a lot of the roads on the East Coast right now:


Don't listen to Mitt Romney. He's a liar. The Red Cross needs cash and blood right now, more than it needs anything else.

The Book Of Trolls

There are three demographic "types" I bust on here in Siri's World: Republican politicians, Christian religious fanatics, and violent criminals, especially those who harm children. The reason I enjoy picking on Christian fundamentalists so much is because, not only is their religous text, the bible, badly mistranslated in many ways, but even the "Christ" archtype is misunderstood by most American Christians and the associated piety is almost always misapplied. Then, these people preach to me about who I should vote for, or where I should go to church, or what I should teach my children. The thing is, I already have a religion, and it isn't Christianity. I can, and do, teach my children anything I choose. There is nothing that a Christian fundalmentalist can offer me in terms of lifestyle that I need. I do not wish to vote with them in a bloc, I do not wish to attend any of their churches, and I do not wish to hear about their interpretation of their badly mistranslated scriptures at the PUBLIC school my children attend. This is what the troll who sent me this comment fails to understand: I have a constitutional right to vote for whomever I please without harassment. I have a constitutional right to bring up my children as I choose without interference. My neighbors here in Northeast Kansas have overstepped the bounderies of the law and of my constitutional rights concerning those things on more than one occasion. Here's the comment:

"Because you proclaim to be a christian, but OBVIOUSLY have missed Sunday School, here are a few verses from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Which if you check in the "Mormons" standard works, (their books of religious text), this is what WE use to study Christ's word. Matthew 7:1 Judge not that ye be not judged. Matthew 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. If you hate Mormons so much, and proclaim to be such a better person, why not turn the other cheek like Jesus tells you to do? Smile to them that wrong you? Why do you not confront them in person even? Why Ms. Julie? Why do you feel so much comfort in cowering away to your computer, speaking evil behind that Mormon ladies back, doing the same things you claim she does to you? And if you think you are better than the "racist" mormons, think again.".....Words from the Book of Trolls
 
First off, my Mormon sounding troll, I NEVER proclaimed to be a Christian, unless I did it during another lifetime, which brings me to my second point; of COURSE I missed Sunday School, because I am not a Christian. Third, I do not believe I compared myself favorably to Mrs. Mormon Lady, or stated that I was better at she; I simply stated that I wished she and Mitt Romney both felt that the laws applied to them as much as the laws apply to everyone else. I also fervently wished, while recovering from major illness, that I did not have to go outside, daily, in the snow, for about six months, and clean up the trash her dog strewed all over my yard. I don't think anyone would appreciate that. Other neighbors did not appreciate it, either. And yes I did confront Mrs. Mormon Lady in person. She screamed at me and slammed her door in my face. Apparently, if I am not Mormon, I do not deserve any curtesy at all. Did you not read my initial post?
 
As for the book of mormon being a legitimate scripture for a Christian, it ain't so. Read the last chapter of the book of Revelations in the New Testament of the REAL Bible. Saint John emphatically warns that it is blasphemy to add anything to the scriptures. That would, in the Christian world, include the book of mormon. And racism IS codified by the book of mormon, making it nothing short of an anathema to any religion or path of Light or Love.
 
I will hand over to some REAL Christians here, who can explain this much better than I can.

One More Mitt Romney Video



In Case You Missed Church This Sunday

In case you missed church this Sunday....I think I will pick on Mormons again, today. Allow me to delve into my own personal experience with Mormons, which, thank the Gods, is not terribly extensive. It is only recently that I discovered that Mormons have a "Jesus" icon, which, while different from the Jesus revered by actual Christians, is enough to create some confusion among outsiders as to whether or not Mormons are Christians.

There is a middle-aged Mormon woman who lives two houses away from me. She holds a paraprofessional position at the local public school as well. When I first moved here, she was never terribly friendly or nice to me, despite the fact that our children are about the same ages, and many of them are in the same classes. In fact, she was always rather snippy and rude, preferring to gossip about me behind my back instead of returning my friendly Southern "hellos". Having had worse neighbors during the course of my lifetime, I did not pay her attitude much mind, and when her huge Golden Retriever mutt puppy dog tipped over my trash, the kids and I just picked it up. I thought that her dog's jaunt through the neighborhood despite leash laws was an isolated incident. Then, day after day, week after week, the same dog visited our garbage cans, constantly strewing garbage everywhere. Tired of it, I decided that paying Mrs. Mormon Lady a visit and asking her politely to keep her dog indoors or tether the dog would be kinder and more polite than calling Animal Control, or the Kansas equivilent of same. So I knocked on her door, and when she answered, I told her about the dog tipping over the trash. She immediately began yelling and screaming that she did not have a dog. Then I pointed out that I had seen a Golden Retriever mutt in her yard. She then screeched that the dog was never off of her leash. Then, the dog ran down the sidewalk from the north end of town, turned the corner, ran up the front steps, and sat down on her porch. The dog offered me her paw. "Is this the dog that is always on a leash?", I asked. At that point, Mrs. Mormon Lady slammed the door in my face. She has done quite a bit of backstabbing since that day. She even gathered my children, while at school, to tell them that I cursed at her during the exchange on her front porch about the dog, which is NOT true. I did not even raise my voice, let alone use foul language. So, my firsthand information about Mormons is that they are irresponsible about pet ownership, and manipulative and dishonest. It's one of the reasons I will never vote for a Mormon.

When I stop having ugly experiences with people who claim some sort of "holiness", or "betterness" than the others with whom they share this earth, and stop hearing lies from them, that's when I will start taking these individuals seriously as respectable citizens. Not until then. And that includes Bishop Mitt Romney.

Obama Does His Job While Romney Runs For Cover



 

A big storm threatens the East Coast. Obama headed straight for Washington D.C. Romney, on the other hand, ran away, getting as far inland as he could without running into another storm. If Mitt Romney cannot stand up to a storm, how on earth would he stand up to an enemy? He'd be the first in retreat. Every time.
 
But then, Mitt does not keep his money in America, either.
 
Update: "And while both Republicans and Democrats were tiptoeing around politicizing the storm, some progressive news sites pointed out Sunday that Romney called federal disaster relief funding "immoral" in a primary season debate last year.".....Yahoo News

One update to this: at this point, there have been thirty-two straight months of job increases, not twenty-seven.

Someone Shut Paul Ryan Up, Please.


Geesh. My teenagers have more realistic notions about the world and the population at large than Paul Ryan has. Yes, rape IS another form of conception, but does Paul Ryan want to encourage it? It certainly looks that way. I really can't think of a better way to become one of the forty-seven percent of Romney's instant "throw-aways" who "do not matter".

Special Announcement

For the entertainment of my gentlereaders, gentletrolls, friends, and spectators, and especially, for the pompous, lawbreaking, religion-loving folk in a certain small Kansas town, here's a special announcement......If any of my children come home from school with any tales to tell of pressure to join up with any so called Christian church, or if, for the upcoming holiday season, or any other season, for that matter; the school deliberately or accidently favors any religion above any other.......I will publish the picture of one of my most dishonest, backstabbing, and antimessianic trolls right here on this blog. The person is a teacher at the PUBLIC school to which I refer. If I flip through the school's holiday program and see any reference to Christianity at all, or hear anything about the need to convert, or join one of your dumbass churches, as I have in years past, I will go ahead and give a face to the troll who made these rude, unkind comments. That's right; a picture of this person will appear beside some the more virulent comments proffered by the troll. I will let the rest of the world decide whether you guys really represent Jesus.

I really don't care how long Mr. Music Teacher has been doing his unwelcome and untrue "Jesus" thingy in his class.......if you want a Christian school, go teach in one. You currently teach in a public school. As for "tradition", drug cartels and the Mafia have traditions, too. Should we uphold theirs, even if unlawful? When you bring your religion into MY child's school, you violate the law. Here's something else you might try.....get the city council to secede from the union. Write to United Nations, and tell them that because you want to force your religion on others, and it is against the law here in America, you are demographically different from others in this country, you want their help in becoming your own little nation. You could call it "Naziville", after your cousins overseas. Maybe Darkagesland, for those of you who still think the earth is flat. (I'm sure some of you think that, too) Of course, if that does not work, you'll be stuck with the responsibility of keeping the law. And if I hear any more about your silly religion, I'll be stuck with the responsibility of informing and reminding your judicial system and mine of Abingdon School District vs. Schempp, 1963, Engel Vs. Vitale, 1963, and, more recently, Ahlquist v. Cranston, 2012.

Don't ever tell me that if the majority feels it's "okay", you can violate the law. The principal of the school in question actually told me that he could break the law, and allow his staff to break the law, while on the TAXPAYORS' time card, if the "majority" "felt" that it is okay to do so. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Consitution says what it says, regardless of any "majority". If the majority wants to drive while drunk, it's still unlawful to drive while drunk. If the majority does not mind if the principal passes a bong around at pep rallies, it's still against the law for him to pass a bong around at pep rallies. The only thing in our government system that is somewhat dependent upon a majority is a popular election, but even those can be superceded by the electoral college. Indeed, my local Bolshivekers, a whole state's worth of bigots discovered in the above cited case, Ahlquist v. Cranston, 2012, that the majority does NOT necessarily rule, and that one underaged girl can insist upon a whole state's obedience to the law.

So there's my announcement. My local troll will not only have a voice here in Siri's World if this religious nonsense continues at the expense of my family's serenity, but a face.

Colin Powell Endorses President Obama

Ann Coulter, Another Reason To Vote Democrat

 
This is Ann Coulter, conservative political commentator and professional bigot, posed with a recent tweet she made after the third presidential debate between Romney and Obama. Obama called Romney out on at least half a dozen lies, gave Romney a lesson on military strategy, and kept Romney on the defense most of the evening. In short, Obama won the debate. This was to be expected, since Obama had clearly done his homework before the debate, and has clearly done his job for the past four years. Mitt Vote-For-Me- Because-I'm-White Romney neither had answers or honesty in any of the debates, and he was unprepared for a discussion with Obama. Having learned his lesson after being told to sit down and be quiet during the second debate, Romney decided to behave this time. And so......we got to hear the nasty comment from Ann Coulter. Here's a letter she got from a man with Downs Syndrome.

John Franklin Stephens

Dear Ann Coulter,
Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?
I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.
I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have.
Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next.
Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift.
Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more.
After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.
I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.
Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.
No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.
Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.
A friend you haven’t made yet,
John Franklin Stephens
Global Messenger
Special Olympics Virginia

This letter is a lot more intelligently written than anything I have ever heard from Ann Coulter. Ann Coulter has given all of us one more reason to vote Democrat, as far as I'm concerned.

Rumors Of My Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

Amazing. A man in Brazil discovered that his family was planning a funeral for him, and when he went to his mom's house to tell her to call it off, they were having the wake!!! Gilberto Araujo actually interrupted his own funeral! His mom didn't mind, though, once she got over the initial shock! A case of mistaken identity at the morgue led to this situation. At least Gilberto did not have to contend with Westboro Baptist Church in order to get inside!

 
"Son, you are going to give me a heart attack someday!"
Happy news is always great!
 

Oregon Court Moved To Compel Dede Spicher To Cooperate

As an update to the last post I made, about Dede Spicher's refusal to testify concerning the Kyron Horman case, here is a link to the motion filed by Eldon Rosenthal, who represents Desiree Young, Kyron's mother. The claim is that a mere witness does not have a premise to use the fifth amendment in a civil case to evade testifying. Other privileges do not exist, such as spousal relationship or parent/child relationship.

DeDe Spicher Wants Fifth Amendment Rights In Kyron Horman Case

There is now a new motion on the table in the lawsuit filed by Desiree Young against Terri Horman for answers about her son, Kyron Horman's disappearance from his school in 2010 from his school in Portland, Oregon. It seems Terri's friend, Dede Spicher, wants to assert her fifth amendment rights when she is only a witness, not a defendant. If Dede is ordered to testify, yet still refuses, or worse, lies, she might actually go to jail. Would Terri Horman visit her? It seems that Aaron's Law is proving  to be somewhat of an enigma to those who wish to keep a missing child unfound.

 

Interesting Picture

I don't think we know enough about the Romneys. Look at the expression on Ann's face. Could this be the real reason Mitt said to "use Ann sparingly"?

Private Message

To a young lady whose extended-former-step-family has been grim and intimidating..... if you are legit, I think I know where you are coming from. No; it certainly isn't easy to be a good person surrounded by bad people, or people who want to cover for (I think the technical term is "enable") bad people. It's a terrible, frightening, heartbreaking, and lonely position. Not many people understand, either, because of the middle class, materialistic koolaide that so many people have been drinking for so many generations. This notion that you "owe" your siblings, cousins, or other relations the "loyalty" of looking the other way when they commit minor crimes is what I'm talking about.  Then, you "owe" them the loyalty of allowing them to get away with more serious crimes, too. Then, you suddenly grow up and realize that people other than the perpetrators have been hurt. Next, you even realize that children have been compromised, hurt, or killed by these people who want you to keep the family secrets.

You wake up one morning, realizing that your life cannot operate the same way as the lives of the dysfunctional members of your immediate and extended family members. You wish you didn't have to see them anymore, and you don't want them to hug or touch you. The fact that you share a surname in common with some of them is an embarrassment to you. You cringe whenever you see a policeman near your door, because you wonder about whom you are going to get supeanoed to witness in court against this time. You are beyond tired of it. And speaking of witnessing in court, everyone from your parents to the person who's in trouble this time is practically threatening you.....you had better keep your mouth shut......

Suppose, this time, it involves murder or human trafficking? Yes; it's possible for a dysfunctional family to be deluded enough to demand that everyone sweep those crimes under the carpet, as well. But do they really care about you? Do they care if you can never get a security clearence for a job you have always wanted, because you are covering for them? Do they care if no one nice will ever want to date you, because you are involved with them? Do they care if you end up going to jail for contempt of court, because you were loyal to them, and not to your conscience? Do they care if your children, or your childrens' safety, is compromised, because of their dangerous lifestyles and associations? Do they even give a rip about the healthy relationships and pursuits that you may wish to enjoy, over the course of your life, that will not happen, but for your involvement with them? In my experience, and sadly, I have had some; the answer is "no". They don't care.

I first noticed your online presence last week. I was skeptical, thinking you might be another troll, throwing in your two cents. I looked at your comments, and at the situation you discussed with a friend of mine, and decided that you may very well be for real. If that's the case, you have some serious choices to make, not only for a very young crime victim and a young adult bystander, but for yourself. I just want to encourage you not to let a bully scare you. If you discreetly do the right thing, and talk to the right people, and the situation at hand gets resolved, many people will be very grateful to you. No; things will never be the same between you and certain individuals close to this case, but then.....are things terribly positive and enjoyable for you as they sit? It's an awful choice to have to make, and I don't envy you, but I will support you and help you in any way I can if you need it after you have made the productive, positive choices I know you would love to make. No; things will never be the same, yet that is part of a great blessing that you can one day appreciate. And yes, life will go on. I promise.

 

Donald Trump Has Something Big?

Donald Trump has "something very big" concerning the president. And that's fine, except, it sounds like a personal problem to me. Could it be bigger than big bird? Donald Trump likes to howl and cry with the birthers about Obama's birth certificate. He might be racist, or he might simply be unwilling, along with other very wealthy people, to invest in the middle class. Or, he may have other issues. "The Donald" says he's going to announce "the big thing" via "the Twitter" on Wednesday. Perhaps he should take a cold shower instead.

Does Terri Horman Still Love Halloween?

 
What does Halloween look like these days at Carol and Larry Moulton's house in Roseburg Oregon, now that they play host to Terri Horman, sometime step parent of Kyron Horman, who disappeared from his school in Portland in 2010? Do the Moultons still get trick-or-treaters? Does Terri still get dressed up in costumes? Is that Terri's face in the picture below, or did her neck explode? Is Terri still enough of a liar to fail a polygraph? Questions, questions! Do you still love Halloween, Terri?

This idea actually came from a poster on Facebook, who thought Terri looked like Bigfoot when the crew from America's Most Wanted attempted to interview her. Does she do the same thing when process servers show up wanting to talk to her?

Did You Miss Church This Sunday?

I think Jon Stewart says it all, this Sunday!

Blasphemy, Just For Republicans And The Past

Mitt Romney just met with Billy Graham and manipulated him into being his new bitch, convincing Graham to buy advertising in the name of Jesus, and, of course, in the name of Mitt Romney, for the republican ticket. Not only is this tacky, but it is also blasphemy. Jesus, as Saint Matthew tells it, had a very low opinion of the political and materialistic "Pharisees", and he also did not care for the mixing of spiritual matters and business matters. Anyone remember how he reacted when he went to synagogue and discovered the vendors making money by selling animals? Mitt Romney may as well be one of those vendors.

The very possible true reason Billy Graham is Mitt Romney's new bitch is, I suspect, racism. Billy Graham's America was racist. Most of Billy Graham's financial empire was built during a time when talented entertainers of other races were not permitted to compete with him. His fame was built upon forced undersocialization. And now he's donating millions to the republican party because Mitt Romney is white, and Billy Graham really wants a white president. What a jerk. This is one of the reason why I am so sure that Christianity is nothing but hollow and shallow.

Half Of Americans Still Don't Matter To Romney And Ryan

Since Romney is focusing on his binders of women, and trying to make us forget that half of us are unimportant to him, Paul Ryan attended a fundraiser at the home of Marc Leder, the private equity investor at whose home Mitt Romney announced that forty-seven percent of us don't matter. Apparently, sucking up to the same donors who heard Mitt present the fact that Americans don't matter to him yet still want to support his campaign, is more important than running on his own record. But then, he's not terribly honest about his own record.

 

Phone Call To Northeast Kansas School's Insurance Company

At a meeting at my childrens' school yesterday, I was told by the secretary that while the superintendent had, indeed, told everyone concerned that all adults not employed by the school should, upon entrance to the building, sign in at the office, he was not serious and that it was not actually required. The principal backed her up, stating the the school's lawyer had told him that accounting for adult presences in the building in such a manner was unnecessary. So we are back to everyone from the local Avon lady pimping last year's lipstick shade in the hallway to the local sex offender registrants dropping in to use the restrooms. A "visaul" sign-in, wherein the secretary personally knows everyone who might pop in for some reason, and remembers each and every person who passes through the office will be just fine, no need to take the same precautions the rest of the nation's schools take in protecting children. And, oh.....the secretary absolutely knows everyone who might enter the school, too. And she is clairvoyant enough to know exactly which people present danger or have ulterior and unlawful motives and which people are innocent parents. Without a doubt. She will also psychically know if someone has gotton into the building, completely escaping her notice, and is hiding out in the janitor's closet, at which time she will call the principal and the football coach, who, in turn, can handle any emergency. This makes me uncomfortable, as my children are entitled to a safer school experience than that. It also is not compliant with the requirements of public schools in the rest of Kansas, or America, for that matter. It also is not only a tragedy waiting to happen, but a liability waiting to happen, so I decided to skip the normal channels I usually use when providing government employees with new anal passages and called Insurance Services of Seneca, who covers the school's insurance needs, and spoke with a young man named Matt Bachman about the liability and risk with which his company is involved. He listened, and was a bit surprised that the school board was unconcerned about students and their safety. It was also a bit of a surprise to hear that the superintendent would promise a parent one thing, and immediately negate that promise without telling the parent. What stunned him the most, though, is the statement I made about missing children, evidence, and law enforcement. If a child were ever to disappear from that particular school, law enforcement and the FBI would need a written list of every, single adult to enter the building on the day said child went missing. "Visual" sign-ins and the wiles of an inexperienced secretary DO NOT count. Without that information, a crime such as a kidnapping could take years to solve, if it was ever solved. As a taxpayor, I certainly have a right to higher standards than that for my children. Another thing about which I made him aware is this: if anything unsavory happens to any of my children at this school, and investigations reveal that it could have been prevented with simple accountability that was not implemented, I WILL take action. It will be an open and shut case, because children do have rights to appropriate protection, and after my lawyer is paid, someone WILL be making a hefty donation to the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children. If not the school district itself, the insurance company who covers the school district would probably have to pay. Insurance companies will not cover drivers who consistantly get pulled over for DWI, and they quibble about pre-existing conditions; well how is allowing the public at large access to a school for a pre-existing condition?

Thankyou so much, Matt Bachman, for listening to me, and thankyou for caring enough to try to stop a tragedy before it happens.

Dust Storm Causes Traffic Hazards

This hazard, featuring almost no visibility on route 35 in Oklahoma and Kansas is remniscent of the Dust Bowl of the 1930's. The very dry soil left over from this summer's drought, coupled with yesterday's windy conditions, caused at least three dozen cars to wreck yesterday.
"Also, the timing is bad because a lot of those farm fields are bare. The soil is so dry, it's like powder. Basically what you have is a whole bunch of topsoil waiting for the wind to blow it away. It's no different from the 1930s than it is now."

Steve Austin, a Kay County commissioner, said visibility was terrible.

"It looked like a huge fog was over the city of Ponca City," he said. "We've had dust storms before, but I don't remember anything of this magnitude in years."......Yahoo News

Cloud of dust in 1930's.

Hugh Cranford Roaming Free

Kansas went ahead and let Hugh Cranford, the friendly Lutheran vicar in Topeka, Kansas, go free on $250,000 bond after charging him with sexual assualt of a minor. His court date is January 3 of 2013. He lives in Texas. Will he even show up for court? Kansas, don't get your clergy at Kmart!

Ann Romney Can't Dig

 
Gotta love the expression on Ann Romney's face after her husband lost the debate on Tuesday night. She looked like she really thought that Obama OWED her husband a victory, even if her husband did not win! My my, Ann! What has a life of too much privilege and not enough work done to you? Are you completely unable to "dig all jive", or do you hate Langston Hughes, too?

Hooray For Candy Crowley!

I think I have a new favorite female news person! Candy Crawley apparently does not care how much money Mitt Romney has, does not care how elevated he is within his silly cult organization, and does not give a rip about the fact that he has been getting away with bullying and lying all his life. It was wonderful to watch her work last night. She just told Romney to "sit"...something his mother should have tried!

Jason Thompson Wants Obama To Go To Kenya

Jason Thompson
 
Nice. The son of Republican Senate candidate, Tommy Thompson, in Wisconsin, just told votors at a public event that November 6 was when they could send President Obama "back to Kenya". How sweet. Especially since President Obama is from America. What on earth do these Republican types teach their children, anyway? Here's what young Jason Thompson said:"We have the opportunity to send President Obama back to Chicago - or Kenya.".....Reuters

Supposedly, the candidate's embarrassment of a son has apologized, but once again, Republicans, is ethnic background really that important to you?

A Totally Awesome President!
 

Commercials During Sesame Street?

One of the reasons I have always liked PBS stations for childrens' TV shows, such as Sesame Street, is the fact that there are no commercials. Not that I have anything against advertising or business, but I have always enjoyed having a network my children can watch that does not attempt to sell them everything from ice cream to ovulation kits before they even know how to count money. Not only do I think it's better that way, I KNOW it's better that way. A child's formative years should not be heavily influenced by the advertising industry. I also never liked Mitt Romney, and I have never even come close to believing his wife's rhetoric about being a happy housewife bringing up five boys. But now that I have heard Mitt say that Big Bird better better get used to corn flakes, I know that if he cared at all about his own children, something I tend to doubt, he certainly does not care about your children or mine. Once again, Mitt Romney, the biggest corn flake of all, has made it clear that he does not care about American families, and has no intentions of investing in the middle class.

Words For Terri Horman


 
The words were almost written just for you, weren't they, Terri?

Casey Anthony In Cahoots With Nancy Grace?

Meet the modern Republican, folks! It votes for psuedo religious reasons. It gets manipulated by fake morals. It votes for people like Mitt Romney because he's white. It believes that Obama's Hawaiian birthplace was temporarily out of the country because he's black. It thinks that Jesus was an Anglo Saxon, just like the pictures of him in Methodist churches. It thinks that there is a resident evil, somewhere, named "Satan", who is responsible for all of it's shortcomings and character defects, absolving it of the duty to take responsibility for anything. Meet the modern Republican dumdum. And, oh....did I mention that one of those dumdums, in Pennsylvania, truly believes that Casey Anthony is not only in cahoots with Nancy Grace, but in league with the aforementioned Satan, and is plotting to kill her? That's right; Naomi Riches, of Pennsylvania thinks that Casey Anthony has been inducted into the Illuminati Hall of Fame, and that for some reason, not clearly outlined in the three billion dollar lawsuit she has filed against Anthony, Anthony has threatened to kill her and poison her drinking water! So much for Casey Anthony finally going away......it looks like she will get undue attention for the rest of her life. Why hasn't this lawsuit gone away? Does it really have merit?

It's hard to say which idea is more amusing: the notion that Nancy Grace is in cahoots with Casey Anthony, or the idea that an imaginary group of highly focused, very intelligent evil people who hate publicity and wish to remain secretive have recruited and initiated an attention seeking, undereducated, unfocused spoiled brat like Casey Anthony!  It's hard to remain in the shadows when your members have the paparazzi following them around! Also, who would have the grim responsibility of teaching young Casey the disciplines involved in the ways of evil? (I am only jesting, folks, don't get paranoid) Would that fall on some poor initiate who had somehow fallen into disfavor with the rest of the Illuminati? What a terrible punishment! Pray it never happens to you! Or to Nancy!

If Republicans want to focus on conspiracies, why can't they look at things that are actually happening, such as the fact checks on Mitt Romney's claims during the recent debate? Why not look at the Koch Brothers, and how their family has been buying elections and bankrolling conservative candidates for years? Why go with things that are complete nonsense?

D'Andre Lane Found Guilty In Bianca Jones Murder

Bianca Jones, the toddler who disappeared in Detroit shortly before Christmas last year, is still missing, but her father, D'Andre Lane, was found guilty yesterday in her murder. I wish I could hug the grandmother in the video. This is so sad.

What's almost completely unbelievable is that D'Andre Lane actually wore an orange shirt to court.....the same shade of orange as jumpsuits worn in prison! He may as well have worn a sign reading "I did it. Find me guilty, already!"

 
Terri Horman should take note of this case. D'Andre Lane was charged, tried, and convicted despite the failure to find Bianca.
 

Where's Lisa, Debbie?

I must say; I've had some interesting hits to my tracker in the last couple of months. Also some interesting comments, some published and some not. Here's a message to someone who wants all of the media attention to Lisa Irwin and her missing persons case to stop. The problem is, Lisa has not been found. And Lisa's parents have not cooperated, very noteably, Lisa's mother, Debbie Bradley. To the left, is Lisa's missing persons poster, with the word "kidnapped" shaved off. Perhaps the word "missing" describes the situation better.

Sadly, Jessica Ridgeway's remains were identified today. Hers are the remains that were discovered in Arvada, Colorado, about seven miles away from where she disappeared.

Mitt Romney And Our Enemies


Jessica Ridgeway Still Missing

 
An OMG moment, here.......the other day, someone in New England called in a tip in connection to this case, involving a missing Colorado ten year old girl named Jessica Ridgeway. Over two thousand miles away, in Maine, someone heard about the case and remembered that she had seen a blue station wagon with Colorado plates and a child resembling Jessica riding in it. She called it in as a tip, and guess what.......in New Hampshire, a recently abanadoned blue station wagon with Colorado plates was recovered behind a Walmart! No joke. Still, amid rumors and misinformation, closed highways, and unanswered questions, Jessica has not been found.

The tip about the blue station wagon may prove most helpful to law enforcement. Anyone who notices something that stands out in a missing persons case should speak up.

Vast Conspiracy Against Terri Horman

 
Once again, about four or five people seem to be complaining about the negative attention that Terri Horman has gotton by not testifying in her stepson, Kyron Horman's, missing person case. He disappeared from his school in Portland, Oregon, on June 4, 2010. Terri Horman was the last person to see him, and to date, has not given law enforcement factual information about her own whereabouts on that day. She has also failed two polygraphs. That's the extent of her exposure to the search for Kyron.

Since then, Terri Horman has abandoned her daughter, hired not one, but three attorneys, requested delay after delay in all court proceedings related to her relationships with family members, had a restraining order granted against her continueously for at least a couple of years, dodged summons servers, torn down posters with Kyron's picture and information, and attempted to intimidate any person with information about the case. Among other things..... but these are just the foremost examples. Yet...a media source, Anorak, from England has run a badly worded article about "poor Terri" because Kyron's mother filed suit against her in civil court and a judge subsequently referred to Terri as the "prime suspect". Well! Sorry if this is a problem for you, English Journalist, but the state of Oregon actually has a legal vehicle in civil court to stop a noncustodial party from committing custodial interference. Since Kyron's mother loves him and wants him back, she took advantage of civil law! As for being called a "prime suspect" by the judge, what do you think Terri IS in his court room, English Journalist? A court reporter? Terri Horman is the prime suspect, thanks to her own conduct, and would not be in this position had she behaved less like a perpetrator and more like a parent looking for a missing child.

America's Most Wanted recently included a segment about Kyron. In it, John Walsh, host of the show, states that the evidence all seems to point to Terri Horman. You can see the segment in my sidebar. This, too, has thrown the handful of persons who don't want Terri Horman to testify for a loop. Once again, I say, "Get over it".

To this handful of Americans who do not want Terri Horman answering any questions about Kyron or his whereabouts, you can rant on and on about how much you like this particular English newspaper, but remember; had Terri been involved in the same sequence of events in the same manner in a lot of other countries, England included, she would probably be waiting in jail for Kyron to be found and for all the evidence to surface, if she did not want to testify.

 

Employers Threaten To Fire People If Obama Wins?

I thought American elections ran on SECRET ballots, and I thought it was each citizen's prerogative to vote for whoever he or she chooses. But the owner of Westgate Resorts thinks that bullying is how elections should be won. David Siegel contacted all of his employees to let them know they need to vote republican, because if Obama wins, he will have to keep paying taxes and reduce the size of his company. Waaaaaaa! As if the former republican administration had nothing to do with the state of the economy! As if! Here's what the lying crybaby said:

"If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company," he wrote. "Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone."....Yahoo News

Now; not only is the economy NOT the fault of the president, a NEW president is NOT a guarantee of financial smooth sailing. If David Siegel must lay off employees during a democrat presidency at this point in history, chances are quite strong that he will have to do so during a republican presidency. In addition to threatening his employees, he's falsely implying that everything will be fine if Obama loses. That's not true.

He also apparently feels entitled to more than one vote, via dictating the votes of his employees: "In a version of Romney's "47 percent" remarks, Siegel added that "people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn't. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for."....Yahoo News

There are too many people on this planet for the population to act as a collection of autonomous individuals at the sacrifice of acting as a community. David Siegel did not earn his empire by himself. It never would have happened for him if others had not been involved. While he prides himself with making "all the right decisions", I would bet that luck had a little to do with the fortune he has amassed, as well. And now, to protect his fortune, he is using his fortune to threaten others to vote for his candidate! His logic is a bit twisted, anyway. I made all the right decisions when I had my children. I invested everything I had in them. I also worked, and the fact that my children and family were important to me was a source of friction in the workplace. There were no rewards there for putting one's children first. I didn't get rich, but I won't be told that I made the wrong decisions, just because my income places me in a catagory of humanity that "doesn't matter" to the Romneys. Bush Jr. started a war. He did not care how many parents had invested everything they had in their children; the young people were simply Bush's for the taking, to fight his war. Do we support this war with enterprises that operate in our own country? No! In fact, that's a major difference between this war and WW2. Why isn't David Siegel upset about that?

Mitt Romney has made it clear that he has no intentions of investing in the middle class. Almost half of Americans don't matter to him. David Siegel's employees enjoy the same chances of stability or lack thereof no matter who wins the election.

 

Local Person Wants To Defend Racist Mormons

"Please read this. You might gain some insight into Mormons views on racism in their PAST."


Okay, local person who wants to think racism is acceptable if it can be properly disguised or hidden; I got your comment. I did not publish it in it's complete form because it contained a link to a site defending the blatently racist and ignorant statements and doctrines of the Mormon church, and I am not here to defend such crap. If God is really who the gospel of Matthew says he is, then, believe me you.....all of the Mormon gibberish is nothing but a bunch of crap. You stated to me that the racism is in "the past". Then you gave me a link citing that this "past" is 1978! In my world, 1978 was not that long ago. In fact, my world is largely made of things I learned in 1978 and before that! 1978, while in the past, is part of the RECENT past. So is 1956, by the way; the year Brown vs. The Board of Education in Topeka was won in the Supreme Court. Yet Kansas schools remain unconsolidated in an ongoing effort to ignore the Constitution. Coincidence? I think not!

Here are some racist excerpts from the book of Mormon, which you seem to wish to defend. I'm gonna have to tell you now, though; I would be completely embarrassed and humiliated to support this nonsense or be in any way associated with an organization which so recently promoted it and only stopped promoting it because of social pressure. A doctrine that is central to a religion is central to that religion. It cannot change just because of outside peer or social pressure......and didn't St. John state, in the biblical book of Revelations, that it is blasphemy to change or add stuff to the new testament scriptures, anyway? Hmmm?

"Mormon scripture: God curses bad races with black skin
2 Nephi 5:21
"And the Lord had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them."

Alma 3: 6"And the skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the mark which was set upon their fathers, which was a curse upon them because of their transgression and their rebellion against their brethren, who consisted of Nephi, Jacob, and Joseph, and Sam, who were just and holy men."
3 Nephi 2:14-15
" And it came to pass that those Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites; And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites."


What the hell kind of word is "delightsome", anyway? That sounds like something a pervert would say while committing a crime!

Mitt Romney Belongs To A Racist Church

Mitt Romney is a bishop in his church. His church, the Mormon Church, is historically and currently racist. Whenever he is questioned about this part of his church's doctrines, he evades the question about whether or not he feels he has a literal god-given right to deny constitutional rights and justice to people who happen to belong to races that are not defined as Caucasion. A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for taking America backwards into a part of history that no one should wish to repeat.

 
Here's a bratty, spoiled rotton little Mormon boy telling the world why he thinks it's okay to be a racist. Would we really want to turn back the clock to that?
 
 
 

Bring Me Another Shrubbery

An elderly couple in England were caught recently with a shrubbery in their garden, which, unbeknownst to them, was marijuana! They bought it as a seedling at a "car boot sale", which is kinda like a rummage sale in the United States. They claimed that they had no idea it was cannabis, and the police did not press charges. But they do need another shrubbery.

One More Private Message For Those Local

John Trudell says it better than I seem to communicate it: he has always been so eloquent.

 

One More Reason To Omit Mitt

 
Actually, when the Constitution was first drafted, while marriage was considered to exist between a man and a woman, women were still considered chattel and did not have the right to vote, own property beyond their wedding dates, or bank their money in a lot of places in America. It's beautiful that we have all been able to move beyond those days, and bring the Constitution with us. Marriage would actually be better defined as between two adults, (heavy emphasis on the word adults) of sound mind.

Illinois Students Suspended For Possession Of Caffeine

Yes, you read that correctly! It is not against the law to drink or possess caffeine. It is not against the law to drink or possess tea or coffee. One may also eat chocolate, which contains caffeine, and also consume and share the confection at school. Yet......four high school students in Illinois were suspended for "consuming unfamiliar mints" in the cafeteria! Instead of simply asking the students what they were eating, the drama queens who run the school in Peoria, Illinois hauled the students into the office, confiscated the package, which, by the way, lists all the ingredients, suspended the young people, and called their parents! Let me remind everyone at this jucture that if a crime had actually been committed, the school would have had a responsibility to notify law enforcement. Law enforcement would have had to pack up some doughnuts and COFFEE for the road and go arrest these naughty children. But that didn't happen, because the children did nothing unlawful. But did the drama queens at the school "unsuspend" the children and apologize for accusing them of criminal behavior? (I'd sue the school over that if it were my child) Did they give the students back the instructional time, which is their right? Did they even abide by federal law, which states that children must attend school until the age of sixteen? No they didn't. After the successful dramafest, the school decided that they should continue to deny these children instructional time at school!

"According to EnergyFiend.com, each mint contains 101 milligrams of caffeine along with guarana, green tea, ginseng, acai, mangosteen and goji.

McMichael's father said school officials later admitted they did not know if the chewable, unmarked mints were, in fact, illegal drugs, but upheld the suspensions anyway, saying the teens displayed "gross misconduct for taking an unknown product."....Yahoo News

The Food And Drug Adminstration actually takes all the mystery out of these "unknown products" by requiring a list of ingredients on all foods marketed commercially in the United States. That includes mints, gum, candy, coffee, and tea. Imposing discipline in a school is a very serious thing, especially a suspension. The principal, teachers, and any other faculty involved has the reponsibility to find out what has actually taken place before depriving a child of the right to an education.

Quite a few of us actually drink coffee in support of world peace! Can anyone imagine what would happen if everyone with a caffeine habit was suddenly denied? Another question that deserves an answer here involves the teachers' lounge at this school: how much coffee is consumed there? Had the teachers involved in this incident abused anything stronger and less legal than caffeine before they suspended these children? Had the teachers involved in this incident had their coffee yet?

 
Mints and candy will not be tolerated in Illinois schools! So says the Furor!
