I'm breaking doctor's orders b/c I'm simply too pissed off & stunned NOT to post
Yes, yes... I am being a very disobedient pregnant patient and ignoring my doctor's specific orders of taking a wee blogging sabbatical, but some things fall into the "you have got to be fucking kidding me category" and the following items amply fit: 1) A peace sign wreath, on a private residence in CO, w/a bright string of Christmas lights and a big red Christmas bow on it is actually being contested at Christmas time? WTF? I guess these folks (some who ridiculously claim that the peace sign is a Satanic symbol... sigh...) skipped all of that Christmastime is the time to wish and pray for "peace on earth and good will toward men" and never read the parts in the Bible that specifically refer to Christ's birth as the birth of The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9: 6) "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his govt and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever." 2) So Bush blames ALL of the violence in Iraq on al Qaeda and has the gall to attack NBC for having the good sense to call civil war in Iraq exactly what the hell it is.... CIVIL WAR? Hmm... I guess those Shiite militias and death squads being fueled by uber-powerful Shiia clerics w/ heavy ties to Iran add no fuel to the fire, eh?... and if Iraq is such a safety walk in the park, then why exactly is Bush meeting al Maliki in Jordan and NOT Iraq? It wouldn't have anything to do w/ the fact that Iraq is in such utter chaos and is a complete safety clusterfuck for all human beings, now would it? 3) Newt Gingrich wants the 1st Amendment tossed into the garbage for... get this... to stop terrorism... WHILE HE WAS GIVING A SPEECH AT A 1ST AMENDMENT CEREMONY! Umm, Mr "I cheated on my dying wife but I'm still the pinnacle of GOP family values"... the only terrorists I seem to find wanting to do harm to American citizens and the very fabric of America are you and your evil theocratic- dictator wanna be GOPers. 4) Watch this YouTube clip of US soldiers taunting Iraqi kids w/clean bottled Evian water. Our guys never throw the ragtag group of kids water... they just laugh at them. I can't imagine what it is like for our troops over there, but WTF justifies taunting little kids w/ a basic necessity of life like water? Thirsty little kids for God's sake... in a land that we have utterly laid to waste and have made their daily lives worse than under Saddam, and made their water supply next to nil... it is simply unspeakable. On a good note... Baby to Be appears to be doing A-okay: While watching Hubby and BabyGirl decorate our front living room Christmas tree (I was on the couch, in charge of detangling the garland and making sure hooks were properly affixed on ornaments) we were listening to the fine Spanish guitar & flamenco/ Arabic music of a collection of downloaded Alabina & Gipsy Kings' songs. Baby to Be seems to be quite the international fan of music because he/ she was just flipping around in utero for the entire CD. Good to see that my unborn has such good taste in music, no?
