Iraq War Veteran, Wife Assaulted Outside Florida Theater by Teen Mob

FoxNews:  He was an Iraq war veteran home on leave in time for Christmas. She was looking forward to a night out with her husband after so much time apart.


But a group of teenagers had other plans for Federico and Kalyn Freire, who were assaulted outside a Florida movie theater after asking the teens to be quiet during a movie on Christmas Day.


Federico Freire, a 28-year-old Marine, and Kalyn Freire were attacked after the couple attended a showing of "Little Fockers" on Saturday in Bradenton, Fla.


"The saddest part about it was that this was out first date night together in a long time," Freire's wife, Kalyn, said in an interview Wednesday with FoxNews.com. "We were just looking to spend some time together."


Freire, a Florida native stationed at Camp Pendelton in California, said he and his wife asked a group of "obnoxiously loud" teenagers talking on cell phones to "be quiet" during the 8:20 p.m. movie.


"This was my first time back in town from my tour in Iraq," he said.
Freire said that when the disturbance escalated and the group began cursing, his wife called the manager, who asked several of the teenagers to leave the theater.


The couple said they thought the fracas was over until they walked out of the theater and were assaulted by a mob of menacing teenagers.


"On our way out of the movie theater, my wife gets surrounded with about 10 to 15 girls that were about to attack her," Freire told FoxNews.com. "As soon as I saw this I immediately ran and got her out of harms way."


Freire said he was kicked and punched as he and his wife tried to run from the group.
"I leaned down to grab my purse and there were literally 100 teens around us," Kalyn Freire said, "While the manager was in the corner with his mouth open and not doing anything."


Freire said one bystander stepped forward and told the couple to follow him to his car, saying he could scare the crowd off with a gun. But before the two reached the man's vehicle, one of the teenagers said, "I'm going to knock your wife out," before punching Freire's wife to the ground, the couple said.


Deputies from the Manatee County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene and arrested two 15-year-old brothers and charged them with misdemeanor battery.


According to a police report, three others -- 16-year-old Ishmael Dunbar, 17-year-old Reginald Gardner and 20-year-old Destiny McNeil -- were arrested and charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer and trespassing.


"All available units were requested to respond to disperse the crowd for officer safety and to restore order," the police report said. One teenager was stunned by a Taser.


Authorities said the fight attracted about 300 bystanders.

This is absolutely an outrage. I believe the parents should have been contacted, fined and all of those vile miscreants placed in jail at least 30 days or more and then perform community service at a garbage landfill. Oh, definitely should have confiscated all of their cell phones.


This is a perfect example of parents who don't give a poop about their kids and allow them to do what they want.  They lack respect for their elders or anyone else.  They have been raised with a "entitlement" mentality. And have probably never suffered the consequences of their actions.  


It is time for parents to start disciplining their kids as was done in the 50's and below.  You would have have never heard of this kind of behavior back in those days.  I bet the manager of the movie complex would have been allowed to whack a few of those bottoms and then the parents would take over from there.  Maybe the police even hosing them down or using their batons.


This is what we get for allowing progressives to usurp parental authority.

'FAIR' education for 'positive' outlook on homosexuals

ONENEWSNOW:  A California senator is proposing a bill that would radically promote the lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement in schools and wouldn't allow parents to take their children out of discussions concerning the alternate lifestyles.

State Senator Mark Leno (D) has introduced a measure that would require public school textbooks to be re-written to contain information about the LGBT movement. Under the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful) Education Act, textbooks must highlight key LGBT figures who contributed to the history of the United States and include details about the homosexual movement.

But Penny Harrington, Concerned Women of America's (CWA) legislative director of California, says the bill mandates certain instruction in social sciences and removes safeguards from communities.

homosexual"This bill will prompt open discussion in classrooms of all ages about sexual practices, and these are conversations that most parents are going to consider inappropriate," she notes.

Under SB 48, Harrington explains that charter and alternative schools in the state will be required to adopt the changes. Only private and home schools that do not receive state funding will be exempt. So the pro-family activist is concerned that the measure will "control the moral attitudes" of students concerning alternate lifestyles.

"The bill's language demands that nothing can be said about the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender lifestyle that reflects adversely on these persons. So only positive messages can be shared about behaviors that can have serious...emotional and physical consequences," the legislative director explains.

She adds that the FAIR Education Act will take decision-making away from local governments, and parents will not be warned about inappropriate discussions in public schools.

Is anyone else seriously getting tired of this gay agenda crap?  Because I sure am.  It's a lifestyle, it is a choice, NOT something that a person was born with, NOT genetic, NOT a race, not anything of consequence,  It is simply a behavior that people have chosen to follow.

I sure as heck am not going to teach my children about it or allow a public school official or instructor to usurp my authority over what  MY CHILDREN will learn or not learn!  

This is simply getting out of hand. And speaking as a Christian I am truly praying for all of us (believers) that God will forgive this nation for what it is doing and not send His wrath down on all of us.  I am seeing the United States of America changing into Sodom and Gomorrah.  And it is very troubling.  May God have mercy.

Breath Of Heaven - Amy Grant


I heard this song for the first time and it touched my heart.

Lyrics

I have traveled many moonless nights,
Cold and weary with a babe inside,
And I wonder what I?ve done.
Holy father you have come,
And chosen me now to carry your son.

I am waiting in a silent prayer.
I am frightened by the load I bear.
In a world as cold as stone,
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now.
Be with me now.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven,
Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
Breath of heaven.

Do you wonder as you watch my face,
If a wiser one should have had my place,
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan.
Help me be strong.
Help me be.
Help me.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven,
Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven,
Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven.


I normally post "Mary Did You Know" but this song, wow!! I truly was touched signing it at church.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! To all of my dear and precious sisters and brothers, my fellow bloggers, in Christ Jesus.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS! I LOVE YOU!

Obama wrestling with gay marriage question

This is what we get when we have an arrogant, narcissist in office who doesn't give a rats-rear-end about this nation only that he gets his way.  And this afternoon his demand was finally met.  Today he pridefully signed the new bill allowing gays to openly serve in combat.


And.... had the audacity to state that it would strengthen our military. Please tell me how being openly gay is going make our military stronger?  The man is so consumed with gay rights, etc.  He can't see passed his own hands.

Get this, a few hours after he signed this disastrous bill, he began to wrestle with the question of whether gays should have the right to marry.

He was so anxious to get this bill passed that he didn't even bother to way the options or the consequences of what this bill would represent to this nation.


I cannot believe how much damage this man has caused in just two years being in office and what even gets me angrier, are the Republicans who have stroked his pride and are kissing up to him and to his liberal cohorts.


I detest liars, traitors and hypocrites.

The Clouds Roll Away Blog tour

Thank you LitFuse for providing me a copy of this book to review.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon returns home for Christmas but discovers Richmond, Virginia running low on goodness and light.

Although her exemplary service in Seattle lifted her disciplinary transfer, Raleigh lands a hometown civil rights case riddled with problems that could get her sent away again. When she helps out a fellow cop, her life goes on the line, forcing her undercover in a sting operation. As Raleigh realizes the lines are crossing and double-crossing, her domestic life starts to unravel. Her mother's mental health cracks like ice, her closest friend grows cold, and her old boyfriend DeMott comes a-calling, hoping for more than chestnuts by an open fire.

While the city glows with Christmas lights and carols, Raleigh is forced to rely on her sharpest skills to stay alive, hoping for that one clear moment when everything makes sense and the clouds roll away.

MY REVIEW:   This is the first novel I have read that was written by Sibella Giorello.  I must admit when I first began this book, it was a bit slow, however, I continued to read and it progressively got a lot better and very interesting.  I don't want to give much away, but this book is definitely a thriller-mystery.  I would easily compare it to something you would see on CSI.  I loved unsolved mysteries and this one is a definite must read.  I fully enjoyed it.

Repeal of Military Gay Ban Clears Final Senate Hurdle Before Passage

WASHINGTON -- After two failed attempts, Senate Democrats cleared the way Saturday for passage of a landmark bill that would end the Clinton-era ban on gays serving openly in the military and mark a major triumph for President Obama, liberals and the gay community.


In an unusual weekend session, senators voted 63-33 to advance a bill ending the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.


The repeal, which passed the House this week, could win final passage by Saturday afternoon. The Senate plans to vote at 3 p.m.


Obama praised the Senate, saying the policy undermines U.S. national security and violates "the very ideals" that members of the armed services risk their lives to defend.


Ending the ban will mean that "thousands of patriotic Americans" won't be forced to leave the military "despite years of exemplary performance, because they happen to be gay," Obama said.


Democrats won support from six Republicans to advance the bill: Sens. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mark Kirk of Illinois, George Voinovich of Ohio and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine.



This is very, very disappointing, especially of the Republican betrayals.  Sen. Scott Brown was was very clear about DADT when he was running for senator that he would not vote for the repeal, and low and behold, he did a flip-flop on us all.


Things will continue to spiral down from bad to worse as long as that vile and deviant man continues to sit in the White House.  He has systematically tearing down our great, and once, Christian nation.  


This blogger is truly in a saddened state.

Sorry for not posting as often.

Sorry I am not posting as often as I used to. I am just staying a lot busier nowadays. I work part-time as an office manager. On Tuesdays, which is my longest day,I am babysitting five kids, and homeschooling four of them. Then I sell Avon on the side, not to mention caring for my boys, home, etc. Whew!

Anyhoo, this is why my posts are a bit neglected. I will try to do better. Because I love blogging and visiting my blogging buddies, as well. We keep each other informed.

Thank you for being so understanding. 


MOVING ON....


I ran across an article that had me giggling.

So a group of atheists in Fort Worth, Texas bought some ad space on buses that says “Millions of people are good without God.” 

And then a group of pastors and business men got together and did a reposte and bought a van to shadow any bus that has the atheist message with this:

“I still love you. — God,” with another line that says, “2.1 billion Christians are good with God."



I love it!! Needless to say, the atheists are not happy with the van message, but oh well, it's a free country!

Michelle Obama doesn't believe parents are capable

President Obama along with his wife, Michelle Obama have signed a new child nutrition bill, effective today.  Which means for parents, more government interference and control of our public school system and control over what our children can and cannot eat while at school. 

This bill is going to cost all taxpayers $4.5 billion that will allow more children to eat lunches and dinners at school, which is part of Michelle Obama's campaign to end child hunger and fight childhood obesity. She basically is forcing schools to cut down on foods like pizza, hamburgers, or whatever kids love to eat.  This bill will give the government the power to DECIDE what kinds of foods may be sold in vending machines and lunch lines, and it could even limit frequent school bake sales and fundraisers that give kids extra chances to eat fun tasty goodies.

And to add further insult to parents Michelle Obama was quoted stating, "It's clear that we, as a nation, have a responsibility to meet as well," she said. "We can't just leave it to the parents." 

Apparently Michelle Obama doesn't believe that parents are capable of being entrusted with their own children but believes the government can do a better job feeding our children. What's next?

I don't think for one minute that either of those two give a rats-rear-end about my children or anyone else's children. It's about training our children to be good, obedient little socialists.

Otherwise, we wouldn't have this ridiculous bill to begin with.  Once again, the Obama's and their administration are forcing Americans to embrace socialism.

Liam Neeson angers C.S. Lewis fans

OneNewsNow:  Actor Liam Neeson has angered fans of C.S. Lewis on the eve of the opening of the latest installment in the Narnia film series.

Neeson -- the voice of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia movies -- acknowledges that "there is that whole God-like, Christ-like imagery there." But in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which opens in theaters Friday, the Irish actor prefers to think of the lion he portrays as a mentor and guardian -- and says the character is also based on non-Christian "spiritual leaders."

While he acknowledges that the story's author, the late C.S. Lewis, was a "famous atheist" who became a "very famous Christian and convert," Neeson has angered fans of Lewis's stories with recent comments to the press leading up to the film's release.

Describing Aslan, the character he voices in the film, Neeson told London's Daily Mail: "Aslan symbolizes a Christ-like figure, but he also symbolizes for me Mohammed, Buddha, and all the great prophets and spiritual leaders over the centuries. That's who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids -- that's what he means for me."

Seriously, this guy grew up in Ireland, is a practicing Catholic and has played Aslan in the two Narnia movies and is absolutely clueless of who Aslan represents?  How on earth did he miss the whole meaning?  I just don't get it?  Did someone hit him on the head too hard?  

What? Did the whole scene on the rock just go right past him and his brain was unable to comprehend or grasp the meaning of Aslan's Resurrection?  Good grief!  Hollywood actors are truly lost.

Developers for the Ground Zero Mosque ask for money

OneNewsNow:  A New York City construction worker who witnessed the 9/11 terrorist attacks thinks it's "absolute madness" that the developers of the proposed "Ground Zero" Islamic center have applied for a $5 million federal grant to build their "victory mosque."

Following those attacks more than nine years ago, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation set aside $17 million for the community and cultural enhancement program to provide funding to rebuild the area surrounding the 9/11 attacks. But it was recently revealed that the developers of what is now being called the "Park51" project have applied for $5 million of that money to fund their mosque project.

Andy Sullivan, a lifelong New York City construction worker and founder of the 911 Hard Hat Pledge, reacts to that news.

"Is that not the most audacious act you've ever seen? This is not only adding insult to injury, it's saying, 'Hey, we know this is hurtful; we know this is almost sacrilegious to you, and guess what -- we're going to make you pay for it now, too,'" laments Sullivan. "This is putting the dagger in your heart, twisting it, and then putting another one in there. It is absolute madness."

The Hard Hat founder of the group that is working to prevent the mosque's construction at the proposed site considers it fortunate that the grant request is unlikely to be approved because that money usually goes toward finishing or assisting ongoing projects -- not starting new ones.

Let's hope they won't see one dime of that money.  Talk about audacity!! They have completely ignored and disregarded the outcry of the majority of Americans who absolutely do not want this center built, at ground zero, yet they expect us to foot the bill.

If they don't have the money than too darn bad. Maybe they should think about cancelling the whole thing or moving it to another and more affordable location.  Quite frankly, I hope that monstrosity never gets built.  I am sure many people won't shed tears over it.
