Happy Halloween! An addition to this post

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!  And to any Democrats reading, this is just a joke. Okay?

A group of kids came to my door and I started handing out candy.  Well, I put in a Heath bar and began to put an Almond Joy when all of a sudden the boy I was giving candy said, "What is that?" I told him it was an Almond Joy, and with I got the cutest response, "THAT'S NASTY!!"  I started to laugh and gave him some milk duds instead and he was quite pleased with that choice and went on his merry way.

Kids really do say the darnedest things and are not afraid to express themselves, gotta love em.

Do Crosses at Catholic University Violate “Human Rights” of Muslims?

The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.
The investigation alleges that Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”
The complaint was filed by John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School. Banzhaf has been involved in previous litigation against the school involving the same-sex residence halls. He also alleged in his complaint involving Muslim students that women at the university were being discriminated against. You can read more on those allegations by clicking here.
Banzhaf said some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate in the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”  
"It shouldn't be too difficult somewhere on the campus for the university to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus,”  
And so another fine example of Muslims bullying their way where they don't belong.  Did they not realize that they were going to be attending a CATHOLIC University when they enrolled?  Can they not read?  Did they truly expect this Catholic institution to bow down to their Muslim demands?  This was intentional, make no mistake.
This is ridiculous.  It would be as if someone walked into a bar and was offended because alcohol was being served and filed a complaint to management.  
I could spout out some more analogies but I believe I made my point.
When are people going to wake up?

Public School Dist. To Pay Muslim Teacher Over Mecca Trip

A public school district in the U.S. must pay a Muslim teacher tens of thousands of dollars and establish a religious accommodation training program for refusing to let the instructor take three weeks off to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.

The settlement marks the conclusion of the first lawsuit filed by Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) as part of a pilot program designed to ensure “vigorous enforcement” of civil rights in the workplace. “Employees should not have to choose between practicing their religion and their jobs,” said Thomas Perez, the open borders advocate Obama appointed as Assistant Attorney General for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.  

The math teacher (Safoorah Khan) sued the Berkeley Illinois district when her middle school denied the leave request because she was the only math lab instructor and her absence would come at a crucial time right before exams. To further back its case, the district pointed out that the union contract did not allow that sort of leave for any teacher.

So Khan, who had worked at McArthur Middle School for barely a year, resigned and sued the district for religious discrimination. The DOJ’s bloated civil rights division quickly moved to help her. In a December lawsuit, the DOJ accuses the Berkeley School District of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by failing to reasonably accommodate Khan’s religious practices. By denying Khan a “religious accommodation”, the district compelled Khan to choose between her job and her religious beliefs, the DOJ claimed.

Feeling the wrath of the powerful and much wealthier federal government, the district agreed this month to pay Khan $75,000 for lost back pay, compensatory damages and attorney’s fees. It also caved into the DOJ’s demand of creating a new “religious accommodation policy” to “reasonably accommodate the religious beliefs, practices and/or observances of all employees and prospective employees.”  

Read the rest of the story here:

Now, let's see if this were a Christian or Jewish teacher making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, would they get the same results as this Muslim teacher?  I doubt it.  

As I have often stated in numerous posts, it is about accommodating Muslims and acquiescing to their ridiculous demands.  This woman has not had time to accumulate vacation time.  Most companies expect you to work full-time and to be in employment for a full year before earning vacation or paid leave, right?

And furthermore, most people put in for vacation time, you cannot just take vacation when you feel like it. That's just normal policy.  My husband's job requires at least 3 months in advance to schedule vacation time.  The only exceptions are a death in the family or sickness.  The employer must have ample to find a temporary replacement to cover the shift and position of the person taking vacation.  When the school denied her vacation it was for a legitimate reason, THEY COULDN'T FIND A REPLACEMENT.  

This is an injustice to everyone else who follows office protocol.  Muslims do NOT have the right to change corporate policy to suit their needs and then sue if they do not get what they want. 

Nuff said.

Obama Administration Bans the Truth About Islam and Jihad

From Front Page Mag: It has been a long time coming, but the Obama Administration has now officially banned the truth. Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole declared Wednesday at a conference in Washington that he had “recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security.” This “reevaluation” will remove all references to Islam in connection with any examination of Islamic jihad terror activity. The Obama Administration has now placed off-limits any investigation of the beliefs, motives and goals of jihad terrorists.
Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasizedthat training materials for the FBI would be purged of everything politically incorrect: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”
Holton said that he had spoken with Attorney General Eric Holder about FBI training materials that Holton claimed were “egregiously false,” and that Holder “is firmly committed to making sure that this is over….we’re going to fix it.” Holton said that this “fix” was particularly urgent because the rejected training materials “pose a significant threat to national security, because they play into the false narrative propagated by terrorists that the United States is at war with Islam.”
Well, there you have it folks the great and almighty Obama administration has spoken and therefore we must comply.  I think not!  

What kind of message is this sending Islamic terrorists?  Did they just give them permission to enter our country unchecked and unchallenged?  Make no mistake people, the United States and any nation or culture that stands against radical Islam is at war with them.  

I seriously wonder what compels this administration to want to protect terrorists who are bound and determined to kill, maim and destroy anyone who stands in their way?  

What happened to protecting Americans?

Occupy Jonesboro attempts to make a ruckus

Yep! I was there and guess what? We DID enjoy eating are wonderful Chick-Fil-A sandwiches! I loved the patience of our group. Teresa was such a trooper. I am SO glad that I wasn't caught on film! LOL!

However, I am in this picture:

I love that I am involved in this fantastic movement and I am doing my part to keep America free from socialism.

Blog Tour Along Wooded Paths

Thank you LitFuse for my copy of this book to review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Book 2 of the Big Sky series.....All she wanted was a simple Amish life . . . But now Marianna Sommer finds herself depending on Englisch neighbors. Although proud of living apart from the world, she and her newly relocated Amish family have discovered that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together.

As Marianna begins helping those different from herself—and receiving their help—her heart contemplates two directions. She’s torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a closer walk with God than she’s ever seen before.

Who should have young Marianna’s heart? What is God asking her to sacrifice? Her traditions? Her community? The answer is found along the wooded paths. 

MY REVIEW:  I have to be honest and say I absolutely LOVE Amish novels, they give you a wonderful glimpse of how the Amish live on a daily basis. I have always been fascinated with them because they choose to live separate from the "Englisch."  And seem to thrive without all the modern day conveniences that we take for granted.  Sometimes I believe that we are the ones missing out on life.

However, I digress.  As with most Amish novels, you have basically the same story line but the characters have different names, at times. This book isn't like most, you are immediately drawn into Marrianna's life and how she struggles with life's daily grind and you realize that the Amish struggle with the same feelings and emotions that non-Amish experience. She is torn between two men and no matter whom she chooses someone is going to get hurt. It's a touching novel of self-discovery, strength and courage. You will fall in love with Amish, I know I did.


She has written thirty books including Songbird Under a German Moon, The Swiss Courier, and the mommy memoir, Blue Like Play Dough. She won Historical Novel of the Year in 2005 and 2006 from ACFW, and was honored with the Writer of the Year award from Mt. Hermon Writer's Conference in 2003. Tricia's book Life Interrupted was a finalist for the Gold Medallion in 2005. In addition to her novels, Tricia writes non-fiction books and magazine articles for publications like MomSense and Thriving Family. Tricia is a regular speaker at conventions and conferences, and has been a workshop presenter at the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International Conventions. She and her family make their home in Little Rock, Arkansas where they are part of the ministry of FamilyLife.

Nothing racist about the tea party'


A black conservative activist has taken the tea party into the heart of South Central Los Angeles to educate residents about political nominees during the campaign season.

The South Central L.A. Tea Party was founded this summer by Jesse Lee Peterson, the founder and president of BOND Action, a brother organization to the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND) that works to motivate and rally Americans to greater involvement in the moral, cultural, and political issues that threaten the country. He says it is important to dispel the notion that the tea party movement is made up of nothing but white racists.

"There's nothing racist about the tea party movement at all," he assures. "I've spoken at several tea party rallies around the country. And now that I've started South Central L.A. Tea Party, we have blacks and Hispanics and old and young and white -- everybody's in the party. And the more that they learn about what we're about, the more people are joining."
Jesse Lee PetersonHe explains that the group is about taking the truth into the community.

"It gives us the opportunity to educate the people about the folks that they've been voting in, year in and year out. [Democratic Congresswoman] Maxine Waters is one of the persons in that district," Peterson notes. "And so it's very, very important in that area, because a lot of the folks have not been educated as to what the country's about and why it's so wrong to have government involved in your life."

And Peterson says the South Central L.A. Tea Party will work extra hard to educate area residents during the 2012 political campaigns.
READ this and you will understand what the Tea Party represents:

Tea Party Patriots Mission Statement and Core Values

Mission Statement

The impetus for the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Core Values

  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Constitutionally Limited Government
  • Free Markets

Fiscal Responsibility: Fiscal Responsibility by government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor. A constitutionally limited government, designed to protect the blessings of liberty, must be fiscally responsible or it must subject its citizenry to high levels of taxation that unjustly restrict the liberty our Constitution was designed to protect. Such runaway deficit spending as we now see in Washington D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of future generations.

Constitutionally Limited Government: We, the members of The Tea Party Patriots, are inspired by our founding documents and regard the Constitution of the United States to be the supreme law of the land. We believe that it is possible to know the original intent of the government our founders set forth, and stand in support of that intent. Like the founders, we support states' rights for those powers not expressly stated in the Constitution. As the government is of the people, by the people and for the people, in all other matters we support the personal liberty of the individual, within the rule of law.

Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible, as do we. Our current government's interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a return to the free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business.

Our Philosophy

Tea Party Patriots, Inc. as an organization believes in the Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. Tea Party Patriots, Inc. is a non-partisan grassroots organization of individuals united by our core values derived from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America, the Bill Of Rights as explained in the Federalist Papers. We recognize and support the strength of grassroots organization powered by activism and civic responsibility at a local level. We hold that the United States is a republic conceived by its architects as a nation whose people were granted "unalienable rights" by our Creator. Chiefly among these are the rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Tea Party Patriots stand with our founders, as heirs to the republic, to claim our rights and duties which preserve their legacy and our own. We hold, as did the founders, that there exists an inherent benefit to our country when private property and prosperity are secured by natural law and the rights of the individual. As an organization we do not take stances on social issues. We urge members to engage fully on the social issues they consider important and aligned with their beliefs.

Any questions?  I am sure I will get plenty of comments.

One last thing, I went to a Tea Party rally this past Saturday that was co-sponsored by AFP (Americans for Prosperity) and this is what happened to me, I posted this on my Facebook wall......

Had a lot of fun! And guess what? AFP wants my political blog address to help me join other fellow conservative bloggers!  AND get this... they give scholarships to these bloggers to go to Washington, DC!!  That would be a dream come true for me. 

And we had our first disgruntled, loud-mouth wannabe OWS (Occupied Wall Street) people present, and, of course, they were rude and continually interrupting our speakers. Finally, one of our older fellow patriots told the loud heckler to "let her talk" and Teresa (speaker) said it was fine and it was all right. She was very tolerant along with the other speaker. 

 Finally, got a little fed up and told the guy he was wrong, said it twice, but my best-friend and new Tea Party recruit, tapped me gently on the shoulder and asked me not to do that, hee....Okay, I behaved myself. LOL!

You know what I found rather comical was you could spot these guys out of the crowd just by the way they dressed and were groomed. They looked like unbathed hippies, totally stood out, which probably was part of their agenda.  While the rest of us were dressed neatly and were respectful and polite to each other, and let me add, we left that parking lot just the way we found it, CLEAN!

NBC Celebrates 'End of Traditional Marriage

NBC Correspondent Jenna Wolfe gushed: "A new report says more women are choosing to be single and loving every minute of it."

Translation: Men are not needed for a modern, educated woman to be happy and fulfilled. Get rid of the useless deadbeats.

Denigration of men was sprinkled throughout the segment. Wolfe quoted "author and single woman" Kate Bolick: "A major factor [in the rise of single women] is the rise of women in the workplace. As women have climbed ever higher, men have been falling behind. So instead of marrying down, women choose to be single and successful."

Translation: Chances are any guy you meet isn't as professionally successful as you. Why bother with the loser long-term?

NBC brought Bolick onto the show, where she argued: "Today marriage is an option, it's not a necessity, the way it once was."

"Today" approvingly quoted Bolick: "It's time to embrace new ideas about romance and family - and to acknowledge the end of 'traditional' marriage as society's highest ideal."

It's the brave new feminist world, where marriage is a matter of convenience, and men are irrelevant. Wolfe noted the decrease in the percentage of married men and women in society: "Research shows that marriage is declining in the United States: According to the Census Bureau in 2010, 50 percent of the adult population was single, compared to 33 percent of the adult population back in 1950."

And there you have it folks, feminist views at its finest. And since they seem to be repelled by marriage, they are promoting promiscuity.  How wonderfully progressive of them. Makes me wonder how they are going to feel years after they are retired and have a nice empty house, but no one to share it with, no children to visit, nothing. Was it worth it?  
This kind of liberal and progressive thinking is one of the main reasons that this nation is in turmoil.  Society has become flippant in its attitude towards traditional marriage, and quite frankly, seem to hate men or rather despise them and marriage altogether.

And since they have such a low opinion of men who do not have high paying jobs as themselves, do they also look down upon their own sex and ridicule those women who have chosen to stay home and care for their families, or are happy just working part-time?

Since when did staying home and raising and caring for your family become a faux pas?

I truly despise the feminist movement and hate how they ridicule men.

Obama Huffing and Puffing Can't Breath Life Into Jobs Bill

President Obama has spent countless millions in taxpayer money over the past six weeks, criss-crossing the country to beat the drum for his "Jobs Bill"--demanding that it be passed now!

Finally, the first vote on it was taken in the Democrat-dominated Senate last evening--handing Obama his first defeat.

According to a New York Post article, the official vote was 50-49, short of the 60 votes needed to surmount a filibuster.

However, as Republicans hold just 47 seats, and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) absent, due to treatment for Prostate Cancer, it is clear that 3 Democrats voted against the bill as well.

Now that's bipartisan.

Not surprisingly, President Obama is blaming the Senate minority Republicans for the defeat, and trotted out his standard fire and brimstone response with great hubris:

And what do I have to say about?  Man up and take it like a man and enough with the temper tantrums!

This bill, like Obama's presidency, is a big, huge, FLOP!  And I am glad to see that his own party are not supporting his ridiculous bill.

He wants to cause a class warfare among the people and that's not going to fly with many Americans. I, for one, am truly grateful for the wealthy and successful business owners who are providing jobs. It's because of them that most of us have employment and NOT relying on government hand-outs, as Obama wishes.

We need to keep these businesses in operation and not tax them to death where they are forced to lay-off or fire their employees. Moron.

Zombie Church Blog

Thank you Litfuse for providing me a copy of this book.

A creative, entertaining approach to resurrecting the undead church. 

There is something missing in the church today. Stuck in a rut of routines and rituals, the church is caught up in doing what it is “supposed to do” but is lacking the true essence of what it is supposed to provide: life. Real faith--and a real relationship with Jesus--is not about playing by the rules, attending services, and praying before meals. Real faith is more than religion.

Believing there is a way to breathe life back into the church, Tyler Edwards adopts a contemporary and entertaining metaphor--zombies--to highlight and challenge the problematic attitude of today’s believers. 

Written for the discouraged, disenfranchised, and anyone unsatisfied with their same-old church routine, Zombie Church challenges readers to turn away from hollow religious practices, which characterize “zombie Christianity,” and turn toward a radical relationship with Jesus.

While other books have addressed legalism in the church, this is the only book that effectively capitalizes on a popular entertainment genre in order to diagnose and correct the problem. Realizing that even his own church is part of that problem, Edwards has written an accessible and often humorous book that will help believers change the Spirit-draining (or life-draining) habits that stop them from achieving a full, fulfilling life in Christ. Order a copy here.

MY REVIEW:  Typically, I normally don't like these kind of books. But this one kept my attention, there were few things that I disagreed upon, but other than that, he made some very valid points. 

Church isn't supposed to be boring, rigid or legalistic. It's about worshiping God and our Savior with joy and thanksgiving. And welcoming the Holy Ghost.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Tyler Edwards is the lead pastor at Cornerstone Christian Church in JoplinMissouri, where he works to help people learn how to live like Jesus, love like Jesus, and look like Jesus—so they carry out the mission of Jesus to the world. He graduated from Ozark Christian College with bachelor’s degrees in both Biblical Literature and Christian Ministry. He has written articles for Lookout Magazine, spoken at various campus ministry events in Missouri, and served overseas in MbaleUganda.

Tyler loves cheesy horror films. He is particularly fond of movies like Dawn of the Dead, The Signal, and 28 Days Later, where zombies run wild and threaten to infect an entire town. Connect with Tyler on Facebook

Billie Holiday - The Very Thought Of You

I absolutely LOVE this oldie but a goodie, I hope you enjoy it!

Yeah, I know I didn't post about politics, but I have a book blog coming up this Wednesday called, "Zombie Church." Then after that back to politics.

Lyrics to: The Very Thought of You

The very thought of you
And I forget to do
Those little ordinary things
That everyone ought to do

I'm livin' in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a queen
And foolish though it may seem
To me, that's everything

The mere idea of you
The longing here for you
You'll never know
How slow the moments go
Till I'm near to you

I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Obama Praises Wall Street Protesters, Calls TEA Party Extreme

Los Angeles Times: Obama: ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protests Show Americans’ Frustration
President Obama said Thursday that the Occupy Wall Street protests show a “broad-based frustration” among Americans about how the U.S. financial system works.

Speaking at an East Room news conference, Obama said he has monitored the movement, which has spread to dozens of cities nationwide.

“I think it expresses the frustrations the American people feel, that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country … and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on the abusive practices that got us into this in the first place,” he said.

So, more than 750 people being arrested in a dozen cities nationwide is just fine with President Obama, because their movement “expresses the frustrations” felt by the American people due to the financial crisis.  When it comes to the Tea Party, however, with one arrest out of millions of Americans who have gathered at hundreds of events, the president dismisses the movement as “extreme”, motivated by race, and bent on espousing views which are rejected by “a vast majority of Americans.”
Obama, as usual, is extremely out of touch with reality. Darn right we are frustrated, but instead of telling these people to get their lazy arses back to work, he supports them.  AND then he is has the audacity to criticize and ridicule the Tea Party, who from my point of view all have jobs, regardless of of where or how much they are being paid. Because we are RESPONSIBLE Americans.  Honestly, since when did Patriotism became a threat and extreme?
Is Hussein looking for a civil war?  Is he wanting division between classes and race? Does he want to dismantle everything our forefathers built?  Yeah, I am convinced he does. He hates this nation, he hates Christianity and he hates that the majority of us do not want government interference.
For the record Tea Party Patriots never receive payment for being at any of the functions, EVER.  We are proud Americans who are the true grassroots activists. 
Furthermore, when a TPP is approached at one of our functions as to why we are there, we readily have an answer.  We don't fumble our words, we don't get agitated, angry, confrontational, physically abusive, hateful and spew out vulgarities because we are unable to come up with a coherent and intellectual response.
Nuff said, for now.  I have a funny picture I am going to share this weekend and I am anxious to get your reactions.

Mr. Obama is right ... America is soft

BELOW: Are Pastor Youssef's own words.  If you ever get the chance tune into his broadcasts, he's awesome.......
When Americans elect a president without doing the hard work of examining his background, beliefs, or ideologies:
America is soft

When Americans elect someone who has no respect for human life and who considers the issue of abortion “above [his] pay grade”:

America is soft

When Americans elect a president who tells them in black and white that he will radically transform America, but they never ask what direction the transformation will take:

America is soft

When Americans elect a president who for 20 years sat under the preaching of an anti-American pastor and thinks that none of that will rub off on him:

America is soft

When Americans vote for a president who, when he held elected office, voted “present” time and time again, determining not to take a stand on so many issues lest he offend one of the special interest groups:

America is soft

When Americans elect a president who has friends with checkered histories, to say the least:

America is soft

When Americans elect a president whose wife, the recipient of so many of America’s blessings, declared that she was ashamed of America:

America is soft

As an American who was born in Africa, I am deeply grateful to be in America. I thank God continuously for allowing me to be in this great and blessed land. This is a land and a republic for which many faithful men and women have bled and died to secure the liberty and blessing that I now enjoy.

Far from being soft, I paid for my own education, and I paid for my children’s educations. I taught them to love and respect the Founding Fathers and the founding principles of this great nation.

Far from being soft, I respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the biblical foundation on which this country was built.

Hard work, personal responsibility, love for God, not envying those who are more blessed than I am – these are the strong building blocks of America’s foundation.

Maybe Obama’s “America is soft” comment will wake Americans up to their sterling heritage and solid foundation so that next time around they will elect government officials and leaders who share their respect for that blessed heritage.

 He is absolutely spot-on!  You cannot argue his logic.  We don't need a government that wants to control every aspect of our lives do we?  Who on earth would want that,right?  Right?

So precious

Got a call tonight to go to the hospital, my precious and dearest friend, Frances, is dying. The cancer has completely destroyed her liver and her brain. She is on a breathing apparatus, but there is no hope, she has hours or days left. They are keeping her heavily sedated. 

I am asking for prayers for her to be at peace and no pain and for her family, especially her husband and daughter.  I just held them and cried with them. What else could I do?

I held Frances' hand and kept on talking with her, and when I gave her a last kiss goodnight on her forehead she opened her eyes for a few seconds, it was so beautiful. I was able to tell her how much I loved her.

She is being sent home to live her last hours or days.  

I am losing one of my dearest friends, and my heart is so broken and torn.  I love my friend so much and this is so difficult for me.

Thank you for your prayers at this time for the family and friends who adore and love her.


My precious friend went home to be with the Lord this morning at 5:30. I got the call at 6:30 and rushed back to the hospital to see my beautiful friend for the last time. 

God is my strength. I am grateful to Him, that she is no longer in any pain. 

So, this morning her daughter reminded us that we should, "let her go and rejoice that she is no longer suffering."

Those were Frances' wishes.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston Thinks Hurricanes Should Be Given Black Names.

My sister's friend posted this tid-bit on Facebook and then I ran across it on the web and saw that Malcontent had posted it on Sept. 16, 2011.

So, I thought I would share this as well.  Okay, there is some bad language, but I am sure you will see the necessity of it.

And btw, I still can't stop laughing.

Here it is.........................

Just when you think you have heard all of the stupid things that are going on in the US -- this comes along...

Black hurricanes....

Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about. A black congresswoman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston), reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names.

She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaquille, and Jamal.

I am NOT making this up!

She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in 'language' that street people can understand because one of the problems that happened in New Orleans was, that black people couldn't understand the seriousness of the situation, due to the racially biased language of the weather report.

I guess if the weather person says that the winds are going to blow at 140+ MPH, that's too hard to understand

I can hear it now: A weatherman in New Orleans saying...

Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo' yo ass like Leroy on a rocket! Bitch be a category fo'! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo' chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo' de nearest FEMA office fo yo FREE shit

We hope this makes Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Happy !

And there is this:

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee — who once famously asked where she could find photos of the American flag that Neil Armstrong planted on Mars — yesterday insisted, in stark defiance of basic facts of history, that 

Direct quotes from the Queen of Idiocy...
today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.
And I thank you professor very much. I’m going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.
Okay, so I can, with all honesty, say, "I am SOOOOO HAPPY that she is NOT a Republican, whew!!"
