You cant see me but Im here inside my mothers womb.
But I will never see the light. Her will becomes my tomb.
My mommy and the doctors wont take faith in what is true.
They say Im not alive, but there are things that they can do.
She walks into a room and sees a nurse dressed in a grin.
They dont know what theyre doing is the Greatest of All Sin.
For what will happen at that time will make the angels mourn.
The world wont see the life and joy Id have when I was born.
Ill never play with other children, nor will I ever learn.
Ill never have to wait in line, for Ill never have a turn.
Ill never pass through teenage years or chat with friends online.
Ill never have a watch to check the hands of flying time.
Ill never feel a puppys fur rub up against my face.
Ill never fall in love and feel my spouses warm embrace.
Ill never be the President or cure the common cold.
Ill never have a wrinkle and I wont live to be old.
I hope my mommy sees the things Ill never ever do-
The people I cant cherish, the things I cant go through.
My mommy had a choice to make, and she didnt choose well.
For theres one heartbeat less on earth, one story less to tell.
She took my life away from me, and under no circumstance
Did I have any choice in this, I didnt stand a chance.
For when you put a child against machines of modern day
Theres nothing they can do and so the price is theirs to pay.
By taking life away from me, oh, the trouble she is in.
She doesnt know shes guilty of the Greatest of All Sin.
But I forgive you Mommy, its the right thing I should do.
Cause Jesus gave his life for you, and Mommy, I did too.

Socialist members of the European Parliament, The French, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Pakistanis, etc (article also includes a list of people who are nervous about the Democrats take over...but their opinion doesn't matter sense they don't want to blow us up)...
Wow...who would ever have thought that all of our "friends" abroad liked Democrats better than Republicans...with friends like that, who needs enemies?
And now for some local notables:
Global Warming Alarmists (aka...the same people who thought the Earth was on the verge of an Ice Age in the 1970s due to man-made causes):
On a brighter note, I haven't seen nearly as many conservatives crying and running off to therapists as I saw liberals doing 2 years ago. Kind of amusing.

Williams: Like Terrorists, U.S. Special Forces Willing to Go on Suicide Missions
Posted by Mark Finkelstein on August 10, 2006 - 22:01.
Brian Williams of "NBC Nightly News" surely intended to praise the heroism and selflessness of our various service people. But he employed at best an awkward, at worst an inappropriate and offensive manner of doing it.
On this evening's 7 PM ET edition of Hardball, Chris Matthews mused about the UK-born terrorists whose plot was foiled today:
"Here we have maybe 24 people who have lived in London and England and the free world for all these years that become citizens, subjects of the Crown, and, yet, after having gotten to know us, they want to kill themselves to hurt us. Isn't that an even deeper conundrum here than the chemicals being used in these attacks?"
Williams [appearing from London's Heathrow airport]: "And that, Chris, that last aspect, the willingness to take one's own life -- I always tell people there are guys on our team like that, too. They're called Army Rangers and Navy Seals and the Special Forces folks and the first responders on 9/11 who went into those buildings knowing, by the way, they weren't going to come out. So we have players like that on our team."

Wrong. Our people are highly trained to accomplish their mission in a manner that gives them the best possible chance of survival. Yes, they heroically assume great risks, knowingly putting their lives on the line. It is mistaken for Williams to suggest that their commanders are sending them on suicide missions. Moreover, their goal is to save innocent life. To compare them with terrorists - often young, confused people being exploited by cynical masters who send them to their deaths for the purpose of taking innocent lives - is wrong.

Here's some info on the recent Qana bombing that apparently CNN and the other networks missed (at least on there websites). I can't imagine why this wasn't something they found more newsworthy...
Taken from: Greg Sheffield's blog at http://newsbusters.org/node/6691 (there is a picture there if you wanna see it):
Was Qana Staged?
Posted by Greg Sheffield on August 1, 2006 - 13:54.
Israel Insider (http://web.israelinsider.com/Articles/D
In the Qana incident, the media reports that a building collapsed and the Israeli Air Force is to blame for dozens of civilian deaths. Israel Insider, a daily Israeli newsmagazine, says they've seen this all before.
The setting was also perfect: Kana was again being used as a primary site for launching rockets against Israeli cities. The IDF reported that more than 150 rockets had been launched from Qana and its vicinity at Israeli civilians, wreaking destruction in Kiryat Shmona, Maalot, Nahariya and Haifa. It was only a matter of time before the Israeli Air Force would come for a visit, using pinpoint targeting of the sites used to launch rockets, Hezbollah logistical centers and weapon storage facilities.
On the morning of July 30, according to the IDF, the air force came in three waves. In the first, between midnight and one in the morning, there was a strike at or near the building that eventually collapsed.
Brent Sadler of CNN reports that the Israeli ordnance did not even hit the building but landed "20 or 30 meters" from the structure.
There was a second strike at other targets far from the collapse building several hours later, and a third strike at around 7:30 in the morning. There too the nearest hit was some 460 meters away, according to the IDF. But first reports of a building collapse came only around 8 am.
Thus there was an unexplained 7 to 8 hour gap between the time of the helicopter strike and the building collapse. Brigadier General Amir Eshel, Head of the Air Force Headquarters, in a press briefing, told journalists that "the attack on the structure in the Qana village took place between midnight and one in the morning. The gap between the timing of the collapse of the building and the time of the strike on it is unclear."
Gen. Eshel appeared genuinely mystified by the gap in time. He "I'm saying this very carefully, because at this time I don't have a clue as to what the explanation could be for this gap," he added.
The army's only explanation was that somehow there was unexploded Hezbollah ordnance in the building that only detonated much later.
So there is a mysterious time gap. Then there is the nature of the building itself.
Eshel reported that as recently as two days ago, military intelligence reported the building area had been used by the terrorists for storage or firing of weapons. It was a bad place to cram dozens of women and children.
There are other mysteries. The roof of the building was intact. Journalist Ben Wedeman of CNN noted that there was a larger crater next to the building, but observed that the building appeared not to have collapsed as a result of the Israeli strike.
Why would the civilians who had supposedly taken shelter in the basement of the building not leave after the post-midnight attack? They just went back to sleep and had the bad luck to wait for the building to collapse in the morning.
Then there are the suspicious bodies.
There was little blood, CNN's Wedeman noted: all the victims, he concluded, appeared to have died while as they were sleeping -- sleeping, apparently, through thunderous Israeli air attacks. Rescue workers equipped with cameras were removing the bodies from the same opening in the collapsed structure. Journalists were not allowed near the collapsed building.
Rescue workers filmed as they went carried the victims on the stretchers, occasionally flipping up the blankets so that cameras could show the faces and bodies of the dead.
But Israelis steeled to scenes of carnage from Palestinian suicide bombings and Hezbollah rocket attack could not help but notice that these victims did not look like our victims. Their faces were ashen gray. While medical examination clearly is called for to arrive at a definitive dating and cause of their deaths, they do not appear to have died hours before. The bodies looked like they had been dead for days.
Viewers can judge for themselves. But the accumulating evidence suggests another explanation for what happened at Kana. The scenario would be a setup in which the time between the initial Israeli bombing near the building and morning reports of its collapse would have been used to "plant" bodies killed in previous fighting -- reports in previous days indicated that nearby Tyre was used as a temporary morgue -- place them in the basement, and then engineer a "controlled demolition" to fake another Israeli attack.
The well-documented use by Palestinians of this kind of faked footage -- from the alleged shooting of Mohammed Dura in Gaza, scenes from Jenin of "dead" victims falling off gurneys and then climbing back on -- have merited the creation of a new film genre called "Palliwood."

Here are 10 of my favorites, 10 reasons that -
"You might be a liberal if...
….you've ever left your sociology class thinking, "That professor really knows what he’s talking about"
….you associate the words "model American" with "Bill Clinton"
….you think Dan Rather represents media impartiality"
….you've ever tried to protect the ozone layer"
….you have a bumper sticker that says "You Can't Hug With Nuclear Arms" on your car"
….you have the entire menu at Cup-A-Joe memorized"
….you stay informed by watching MTV News"
….there is a ring in any part of your head other than your ears"
….you think Ted Kennedy is sober and monogamous"
….you’ve ever gotten angry with your kid for smoking a cigarette .... until you realized it was a joint"
> A Conservative and a Liberal were walking down the street when they came
> to a homeless person. The Conservative gave the homeless person his

> took twenty dollars out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.
> The Liberal was very impressed, and when they came to another homeless

> Now you understand the difference between a Conservative and a Liberal
Question - Who was the first liberal Democrat?
Answer - Christopher Columbus. He left not knowing where he was going, got there not knowing where he was, left again not knowing where he'd been, and he did it all on borrowed money.
Question - What is the difference between a liberal and a puppy?
Answer -A puppy stops whining after it grows up.
Q: How many liberals does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Let George Bush fix it! It’s his fault it’s dark anyway!
A shepherd was tending his flock in a remote pasture when
suddenly a brand-new Jeep Cherokee appeared out of a dust cloud, advanced
toward him and stopped. The driver, a 24-year-old young man wearing a Brioni
suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and a YSL tie, leaned out of the
window and asked our shepherd, "If I can tell you exactly how many sheep you
have in your flock, will you give me one?"
The shepherd looked at the young guy, then at his peacefully
grazing flock, and calmly answered, "Sure."
The young man parked his car, whipped out his notebook
computer, connected it to a cellphone, surfed to a NASA page on the Internet where he called up a
GPS satellite navigation system, scanned the area, then opened
up a database and some Excel spreadsheets with complex formulas. He finally
printed out a 150-page report on his hi-tech miniaturized printer, turned
around to our shepherd and said, "You have here exactly 1,586 sheep!"
"Amazing! That's correct! Like I agreed, you can take one of
my sheep," said the shepherd.
The shepherd watched the man make a selection and bundle it
into his Cherokee. When he was finished the sheepherder said, "If I can
tell you exactly what your political persuasion is, where you're from
and who you work for, will you give me my sheep back?"
"Okay, why not," answered the young man.
You're a Democrat from Palm Beach and you're working for Jesse
Jackson," said the shepherd.
"Wow! That's correct," said the young man. "How did you ever
Easy," answered the shepherd. "Nobody called you, but you
showed up here anyway. You want to be paid for providing a solution to a
question I already knew the answer to. And, you don't know squat about what
you're doing because you just took my dog."
