Slavery Saga Lives On in Connecticut | Only In America | English

Slavery Saga Lives On in Connecticut | Only In America | English:

"In 1839, African slaves bound for a Cuban sugar plantation escaped their shackles.
They killed the captain and cook aboard the schooner Amistad and ordered their two slavemasters to sail to Africa. Instead, the slavers steered the ship into U.S. waters.

The slaves were recaptured off Long Island and tried for murder in the northeastern state of Connecticut - one of the few northern states that still permitted slavery.
Now, the Custom House Maritime Museum in New London, Connecticut, offers a permanent exhibition on the saga."

Comment.....I live in the next town over...Its very interesting...

Heightened US-Egypt Tensions Raise Concern | Middle East | English

Heightened US-Egypt Tensions Raise Concern | Middle East | English: "Egypt's refusal to allow several American citizens to leave the country has heightened tensions between the traditional allies and has some people wondering if it heralds a more fraught, post-revolution relationship. But others in Egypt believe it may be little more than the military leaders posturing for a domestic audience. Several Americans took refuge in the U.S. Embassy in Cairo after being barred from leaving Egypt, raising the stakes in a confrontation concerning U.S.-backed democracy organizations and prompting questions about the future of $1.3 billion in U.S. aid.

Mr. Obama confirmed during an online town hall discussion Monday that drone attacks have been used to target al-Qaida and its affiliates, adding that many of the strikes have been in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. The president defended the operations, which have greatly increased during his administration, saying they are used for "very precise, precision strikes" in the fight against al-Qaida."

Broward man cleared of cigarette smuggling charges - South Florida

Broward man cleared of cigarette smuggling charges - South Florida

"MIAMI — Arturo Marrero is one lucky guy.
Last October, his criminal case on cigarette smuggling charges ended in a mistrial when the FBI arrested a juror who tried to extort money from the defendant's family in exchange for the promise of a "not guilty'' verdict.

On Monday, a federal judge threw out the charges altogether, saying prosecutors failed to make their case against the Davie construction executive at his second jury trial."

Comment ...........This is an example of the States case going up in smoke.... Pun intended...

"Actor Commits Suicide After Pup's 'forced' Euthanasia"

Soap Actor Commits Suicide After Pup's 'forced' Euthanasia | Fox News:

"A down-on-his-luck soap-opera actor took his own life this week after he was forced to put his beloved dog to sleep under pressure from his Upper West Side condo and became wracked by grief, pals said. Nick Santino euthanized his dog, Rocco, Tuesday -- on Santino’s 47th birthday. That night, his guilt over the gut-wrenching decision became too much to bear. “Today I betrayed my best friend and put down my best friend,” a despondent Santino wrote in a suicide note, said close friend Stuart Sarnoff."

Comment....I can understand and identify with the pain he suffered.. I know why he did what he did. Not a day goes by when I don't think of my all time best friend Albert. I still pray for him...I've been around for a while and I never suffered such a loss. My Parents are gone and I have lost best friends but I suffered more losing my little dog...

FBI software to scan tweets to predict crimes - Tech News - IBNLive:

"London: American intelligence agency FBI is reportedly developing new software to scan social networks Twitter and Facebook to look for emerging threats and predict crimes.
The FBI has asked technology firms to create software that can effectively scan the websites for words, phrases and other suspected behaviour, the Telegraph reported.
It will also be able to translate from foreign languages as well as detect patterns of users misleading the police."

Comment.....Freedom of S...........Can I still say (whispering here) speech? Did you know I'm afraid to say certain words? I mean I feel funny like someone might think I actually want to hurt someone....Well guess what? I have discovered in the past few years that I can, if I choose throw barbs that can hurt people intentionally. Why would I want say anything that would hurt anybody...I don't need to that...Speech is a very powerful thing...I have had to apologize a few times....I am very careful NOT to hurt anyone's feelings. Never mind say the words I know they are looking for...

“Football Withdrawal”

    Every year I go through the same thing..The symptom's are involuntarily carrying the TV remote around the house unconsciously changing channels looking for a game that doesn’t exist. The feeling of anticipation about next season. Random thoughts of the Super Bowl and the half time show and lastly. Tiny flares of anger wondering why the season is so short..I keep saying to myself it will pass and I know it will. The only way to relieve the symptom's are long walks on the beach and and making a nice Sunday three coarse dinner. The next step is turning off the TV opting to watch movies on the internet. Its much more relaxing and you know how I feel about commercials…I know I will feel better in a week or so as soon as the Super Bowl is over. That game cumulates a long up and down season for my Giant team. Of coarse I’m going to pick the Giants to win and I will tell you why in a later post. Now I’m going to focus on what to have for dinner, which movie to watch and finding something to do….I’m starting to feel better already…...

FBI to Build Social Network Spy App | PCWorld:

"The bureau said the system it wants must be able to automatically search "publicly available" material from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites for keywords of interest. FBI agents would be alerted if the searches come up with evidence of "breaking events, incidents, and emerging threats."

“Change Again!”

Things are really changing…My favorite Saturday morning anchor girl is gone..The new girl said, “now that Heather is gone we have been”…I turned off so I don’t know..Heather has been gone for two weeks and miss I her. She was like a real person with the greatest smile in the whole world…I liked waking up with her on Saturday and Sunday mornings…Its like losing a girlfriend. …She going to Boston of all places. Lucky Boston. I actually thought about moving….

My home page on Live Journal, of which I pay for by the way. Now its filled with subtle (suggestions?), commercials and ads that want me to go to certain pages and from what I understand, buy something or join something…Note…I will never buy, be suggested to, charge or be provoked into doing these things…The more I’m tempted, the more I resist.. I notice there are more ads and commercials on TV also..Some are good, some are horrible designed to get your attention. I do like the little boy that is standing in the crib and talks. I don’t know why or what for but its cute. He will be very popular on Super Bowl Sunday..I figured it out and my TV is muted 93.7 % of the time..I mentioned in the past that I don’t like change but it isn’t the change I don’t like. Its that now you don’t get a chance to enjoy stuff because it changes too fast..Like before you know it, its gone..I’m the type of guy that likes to smell the coffee in the morning..There are no surprises anymore because you don’t get a chance to enjoy stuff.

One last thing while I’m thinking about it. Gas is $4.00 a gallon soon to be $5.00 gallon. Hey!…All you morons out there. Did you know that the faster you go the more gas you burn and the more they will charge you later on..You are doing exactly what the Greedy Bastards want you to do…

U.S. News - Second Conn. home invasion killer is sentenced to death

U.S. News - Second Conn. home invasion killer is sentenced to death

"NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A Connecticut man was sentenced Friday to die for killing a woman and her two daughters during a night of terror in their suburban home, a gruesome crime that unsettled the suburbs and halted momentum to abolish the death penalty in the state."

Comment..... If you don't know what happened or haven't read the story you need to read this...
Sentenced to death...I don't know what to say...I can't think of anything appropriately bad enough to say about these two monsters. They are the scum of the earth if there is such a thing, there is no lower form of animal or humanity than the sub-humans that did this to this family...If anyone deserves to die, its people like this. Not as an example or deterrent but just because these Bastards don't deserve to live..May they both burn in Hell...

Comment......There is a poll on the link page...

What is going on out there when you can't make a tongue in cheek comment? Are there any underlying issues beneath the surface? I'm Italian and yes I eat spaghetti and pizza and Taco's are one of favorite foods...I did try grits once but I didn't like that...Golumpkies (stuffed cabbage) is delicious and they sell it frozen along with Creamed dried beef. SOS to us ex-military...Stop being overly sensitive and get with the program...

“Priest's Retirement Dinner”

Someone sent this to me…………..After thinking about it for about 4 seconds I decided to do a little editing and post it….The way the politicians are these days it could be a true story… 
A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish. A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner for the Priest..

However, the politician was delayed, so the Priest decided to say a few words while they waited.

He went to podium and said, “I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. At first I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He said, he had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had an affair with his boss's wife, taken illegal drugs and gave VD to his girlfriend. I was appalled. But as the days went on, I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people”.
Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician breathlessly arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately walked to the podium and began to make the presentation and start his talk by saying, “I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived, In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for confession”.

                        Moral of this story….. Never, Never, Never Be Late.

Secure our borders from illegal aliens or country will fail | Great Falls Tribune |

Secure our borders from illegal aliens or country will fail | Great Falls Tribune |

"Today, 500,000 illegal immigrants from Mexico sneak across the border into the United States each year. .
What happens to them after they arrive here? They don't often get deported. Instead they live amongst us, dodging the law, yet taking advantage of everything we have to offer. Many suggest that the noble act of sacrificing everything and taking the risk to provide a better life justifies the act, and that our land of opportunity should be available to anyone and everyone. This thinking is flawed in its practical application.
A nation that does not enforce its borders and laws will fall. Many civilizations have collapsed because they have not properly protected their borders, including Rome. Let's not make that same mistake."

Comment.......The way this country is now is a sign that this may be true...Laws and rules being manipulated. Greed at its highest level, the crime rates exploding and taxes going up. Welfare like I have never seen it...A predicted $5.00 a gallon for gas by this summer..........It may be too late...

Last year I joined a web site about sea glass collecting, I walk on the beach everyday and look for sea glass. The site is called is called "The North American Sea Glass Association.

Hi All,
First I want to thank the many members who responded to the request for newsletter submissions!

Grim murder no surprise in Central Valley, Calif., U.S. meth capital –

Grim murder no surprise in Central Valley, Calif., U.S. meth capital –

"FRESNO, California (AP) – When a 23-year-old Fresno woman fatally shot her two toddlers and a cousin, critically wounded her husband then turned the gun on herself last Sunday, investigators immediately suspected methamphetamine abuse in what otherwise was inexplicable carnage. It turned out the mother had videotaped herself smoking meth hours before the shooting.
"When you get this type of tragedy, it's not a surprise that drugs were involved," said Lt. Mark Salazar, the Fresno Police Department's homicide commander. "Meth has been a factor in other violent crimes." A mother in Bakersfield, California, was sentenced Tuesday for stabbing her newborn while in a meth rage. An Oklahoma woman drowned her baby in a washing machine in November. A New Mexico woman claiming to be God stabbed her son with a screwdriver last month, saying, "God wants him dead."...A mother in Bakersfield, California, was sentenced Tuesday for stabbing her newborn while in a meth rage.

Deciphering Mixed Messages On Drinking And Health : NPR

Deciphering Mixed Messages On Drinking And Health : NPR:

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that binge drinking, usually associated with young people, is an issue among adults as well. And the University of Connecticut recently found Dr. Dipak Das, who studied an ingredient in red wine, had falsified data on its benefits."

Comment.....And they just figured out that drinking to access is not good for you? Think about this! I'm willing to bet that you know of one family member that has a drinking problem. Not someone that will admit that but someone that you see that on occasion drinks to much and ether makes a fool out of him or herself or gets in trouble. I could go on and on with the symptoms but the bottom line here is Alcohol is a mind altering drug and highly addictive. If you drink too much for too long you will die just like a drug addict. One of the warning signs are if you are sick in the morning and don't remember clearly what you did the night before you have a problem...If you do this often and can't stop even if you say you will you probably have a drinking problem...Did you know you don't need to drink alcohol to have a good time? The people that sell this drug want you buy it for greed and so they can make money...They don't care if you live or die. Your family does.

The day it all started was March 6,1836. On that fateful day,
Davy Crockett woke up and rose from his bunk on the
main floor of the Alamo . He walked up to the observation
post along the west wall of the fort. William B. Travis and Jim Bowie
were already there, looking out over the top of the wall.
These three great men gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving toward them.
With a puzzled look on his face, Crockett turned to Bowie and said:
"Jim, are we having some landscaping done today?"
And that is how it all started..


If you have heard of Planking you need to see Bree...This is crazy but what the Hell its snowing and Bree is a very attractive young girl.... why not?

“Snow Day”

My plans are made for today. Stay home, take a break. Later maybe I'll go out and brush the car off. The first snow storm of the season, for me anyway is upon us. I have all kinds of stuff to do here at home to make the day slide by peacefully..I remember when I had to go to work on days like this..The phone would ring and my stomach would tweak...Now its easy...Movies and relaxation...No stress and anxiety. Later I'll make a pizza and do some writing...This new web site is doing exceptionally great, I have over 10,000 page views. It seems like people enjoy my sometimes flip, unflattering comments and opinions....I don't do that all the time. In fact most times I'm serious and I just don't understand human behavior and why people do the things they do. I was taught to learn by other peoples mistakes and so-far it works..That's it for now. Take care everyone and if its snowing in your area stay home and take a break...

EXCLUSIVE: Pakistan Official Says US Military Will Be Allowed To Return, But Not CIA Drones | Fox News

EXCLUSIVE: Pakistan Official Says US Military Will Be Allowed To Return, But Not CIA Drones | Fox News:

"U.S. military trainers will be invited back into Pakistan "as early as April or May," but the nation has ruled out allowing CIA drones back into the country, Fox News has learned.
Relations between the two nations have been at an all-time low since 24 Pakistani soldiers were killed in an inadvertent aerial attack by NATO in November."

Comment....OK, does this mean we can stop all aid to Pakistan and deport all Pakistani people that are not citizens of this country....

Technolog - Anonymous says it takes down FBI, DOJ, entertainment sites:

"Hacking group Anonymous said Thursday it knocked out the websites of the FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, and several entertainment industry sites as retribution for anti-piracy efforts by both the government and the entertainment industry. The group said it was "the largest attack ever," with 5,635 participants involved in bringing down the sites."

Comment.....I don't think the FBI was ready for this kind retaliation from the hacker world...Its the overwhelming response because they shut down a popular TV and movie site...I have a feeling this is only the tip of what is going to happen....Stay tuned....

The Iran Hostage Crisis, 31 Years Later -- PICTURES - -

Allen West on the Marines Incident:
 "Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell"
 January 13, 2012
Representative Allen West (R-FL), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends
THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines' video, & has given
us permission to publish it.

 "I have sat back & assessed the incident w/the video of our Marines
urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation
when our Delta snipers Shugart & Gordon had their bodies dragged thru
Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage & condemnation of our
Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, & hung
from a bridge in Fallujah.
All these over-emotional pundits & armchair quarterbacks need to chill.
Does anyone remember the 2 Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who
were beheaded & gutted in Iraq?

The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade
level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level
letter of reprimand in their personnel file, & have them in full dress
uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God,
Country, & Corps videotaped & conclude by singing the full U.S. Marine Corps
Hymn w/out a teleprompter.
 "As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut
 your mouth, war is hell."

Golshifteh Farahani: Iranian actress banned after posing nude in French magazine | Mail Online:

"An actress who has starred with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe has been banished from her home country of Iran - because she posed nude in a French news magazine.
Golshifteh Farahani says she has been contacted by the Iranian government, telling her that she is no longer welcome in the country and advising her not to return home.
The offending photo - a black-and-white 'art shot' featuring the 28-year-old Farahani posing against a black backdrop with her hands strategically placed over her breasts - was first published in Madame Le Figaro."

Comment.....And I'll bet if she goes home anyway they will stone her to death....

Are U.S. and Iran Veering Toward War? | PBS NewsHour | Jan. 18, 2012 | PBS

Are U.S. and Iran Veering Toward War? | PBS NewsHour | Jan. 18, 2012 | PBS:

"VALI NASR, former State Department official: I think we are in a place where we haven't been with Iran before.
We are in a situation that the two countries have no relations with one another. There's no hot line between them. There is a great deal of pressure on Iran. And the Iranians for the first time have begun to react to this pressure by threatening either closing the Straits of Hormuz, putting economic pressure on the West, or as they did in response to the killing of a scientist in Iran, that they may retaliate even outside of the Middle East."

Comment......I only know from past experience what is happening now has not happened before...Not as bad, that is...There have always been threats but cutting off oil to countries is like the worst thing they could do...Even worse than taking hostages. We have been letting them do that for years and paying ransoms and forgetting about it.... Sort of...Who knows now what might happen? I hear talk of $5.00 a gallon for gas and with our economy the way it is now, I don't think we are going to let that happen...Iran is like a pesky sliver in a place where you can't get at it...Something has to be done but this is a major decision...I don't know where we can find someone to do that...

“My Take on Casey”

The master manipulator is at it again..Everyone scampers to the internet and the TV to see if she is finally telling the truth…All those leaks, the doctors talking, Utube videos  are all tools for Ms. Anthony to play with your minds…Her intention is to create diversions and to titillate you. Talk all you want, this is what she wants. Its her way of controlling what is happening around her.
The Catholic theological definition of a lie is, "To deny others access to knowledge to which they are entitled". The dictionary describes a lie as “Deliberately saying something that’s untrue“. A deception, hiding a secret, an untruth and lies of omission are still lies. It’s all the same no matter what you call it or how you say it. From the moment a lie is conceived it begins to grow. It has life. It’s the beginning of its cycle. It has a life span. When a lie is told, someone’s future could be changed. A lie is told or suggested to someone. A lie is always a secret. Its something that someone doesn't want someone to know. There is always a victim, if convinced and the person doesn't suspect, a trusting unsuspecting or even a suspicious victim will believe it. Usually a lie is a cover up of a mistake. It could be a broken promise, a secret or something embarrassing. It could be anything and to what degree will it be painful when found out? It depends on who tells the lie. The longer a lie is left untold the more damage or pain it will cause. If left uncorrected the lie will fester and expand for weeks, months, years and maybe even generations. It doesn't matter, sooner or later the victim of a lie will be hurt. Sometimes the teller of lies is so convincing that they believe the lie themselves. A lie can start at the telling of story, the denial of an affair or even something smaller. The key to being a good liar is to believe your own lies. The first thing the victim does when told the truth, or the truth is uncovered, is wonder why? That question leads to anger, pain, hate  and resentment. An feeble attempt to cover it up and manipulate the truth usually fails but not always, its just a matter of time and its out in the open. You still don’t know if this master manipulator is telling the truth. What we do know now is if that two people know a secret it isn't a secret. Remember, there are two kinds of truth. The real truth and the truth as seen through the eyes of a compulsive liar...…...

Secaucus ex-mayor's sentencing on corruption charges rescheduled for March -

"The sentencing of former Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, who was convicted last summer of accepting a $10,000 bribe in an FBI sting, has been postponed until March.
Elwell, 66, was found guilty on July 6 of pocketing a cash-stuffed envelope that had been passed to him by an admitted middleman, Ronald Manzo. The money came from Solomon Dwek, an FBI informant who posed as a corrupt developer seeking the mayor’s assistance on a hotel project."

Amateur sleuth finds serial murders in old case files | The Republic

Amateur sleuth finds serial murders in old case files | The Republic:

"ROCHESTER, N.Y. - A computer analyst turned amateur detective used old FBI crime files to identify a cluster of unsolved murders of young women in upstate New York that police agree was the work of a little-known serial killer active in the early 1990s. Kevin Fallon, 38, an information technology analyst from Buffalo, N.Y., has proven it's possible to spot serial murders by carefully studying FBI records of America's 190,000 unsolved homicides committed since 1980. About a third of all homicides go unsolved each year in the United States."

Federal Authorities Charge 7 In Insider Trading Case : NPR

Federal Authorities Charge 7 In Insider Trading Case : NPR: "A hedge fund co-founder, a hedge fund portfolio manager, four financial analysts and a Dell Inc. employee teamed up in a record-setting insider trading scheme that netted more than $61.8 million in illegal profits based on trades of a single stock, authorities said Wednesday as they described a cozy network of friends in finance who made the most of their connections with corrupt employees of technology companies.

The scheme was outlined in a criminal complaint in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that charged four of the men with conspiracy to commit securities fraud and securities fraud, among other charges. Three analysts have already pleaded guilty and are cooperating with the government, according to the court papers."

What happens to old and expired supermarket foods? - WFSB Channel 3

What happens to old and expired supermarket foods? - WFSB Channel 3:

"So what comes of all of this food? Fresh vegetables and meats, are often cooked up for in-store deli and salad counters before they spoil, says supermarket consultant David J. Livingston. A portion of it is inevitably thrown into the garbage and ends up in landfills. But surprisingly much of it finds a second home. Some is given away to food banks, some sold to salvage stores and the rest taken by people who scrounge outside supermarkets."

Comment..........I always wondered what they do with this food....When I buy frozen food usually its the things I like and its got to be on sale. I think that happens when when the expiration date gets close to the end...In this story they talk about scavengers ( imagine being someone has to do this ) waiting by the dumpsters to pick it up the food they throw away....I'm tempted to go and see who is there because I already know who isn't...

"Federal Benefit Payment"?

   A friend of mine sent this to me. I thought I'd pass it along.

           Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now referred to as a "federal benefit payment"?
    I'll be part of the one percent, to forward this, our government gets away with way too much in all areas of our lives, while they live lavishly on their grossly overpaid incomes! KEEP passing THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS READ IT.....
    This was sent to me, I am forwarding it because it does touch a nerve in me.
Get angry and pass this on!
    Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.
    If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.
    If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
    The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.
    Entitlement my butt, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!
    Congressional benefits ---- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages,  three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement entitlements?
       They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.
Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.
    Sad isn't it?
    99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.
    I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did.
Remember.....Election day is coming soon.

"President For a Few Days" Part Three

This is part 3 of the 3 part series about some of the tough decisions that need to made.  I realize some of these things are impossible.... But if only.....

    There will be a Ban all television commercials starting immediately. Ban all suggestive material which includes music and video games designed to entice teenagers to be violent, have sex or use drugs. Anyone caught importing drugs from any country into the U.S. will be arrested for attempted murder. This includes the street drug dealers or anybody that has anything to do with illegal drugs. No exceptions. Any drug addict who wants help can have it as long as they deem it necessary. It will paid for in full by the money that will be confiscated from any and all the countries that have drug money in any bank in the U.S. Treatment is free to citizens only. 

     Then I woke up……………..Think this is Extreme and a fantasy? I would be the first one to agree with you. If this or any part of this is done, I believe the smiles you don’t see anymore would come back. There would be less crowded roads and highways. It would be less crowded everywhere. The air would be clean. Can you imagine looking up at night and seeing the stars again? Did you know there is so much pollution that your kids have never seen the stars the way it was? Can you imagine drinking the water out of the faucet in a real glass instead of a plastic bottle? Can you imagine getting gas at your local gas station and seeing a High School kid named John instead of Abdul working the cash register? Can you remember when you heard the name Mohamed you thought of a Heavy Weight Champion instead of death or a bomb blast somewhere? Gas would be $49.9 cents a gallon the way its supposed to be. People would trust one another again. Families would stay together instead of being torn apart and ruined by drug abuse and teen pregnancy. Honesty and morals would be a mainstay and the thing to do. Love would be what real love is supposed to be about and not just a passing desire for a few years or until you are tired of one another. Marriage would be when, “Through sickness and health” meant just that. The perfect family where Dad works and Mom watches the kids just might reappear. Maybe the kids would be outside playing in the yard instead going on the internet or playing video games. Just maybe a movie would be shown without a gun or death in it. Yes, and to all you people that will say this country was founded by certain principles, your right but most of those principles don’t exist anymore. You are right though, I would be the first to tell you the old words to the Constitution are there but Lawyers and corruption have changed and twisted the words to make them be whatever they want them to be. It seems we are so busy fixing all the world problems we are not watching what is happening in our own back yard. Our country is growing faster than our coping skills can handle it. Maybe it would take some tough decisions and limit setting to fix things but right now the United States is not United. Right now, it has no future. If you think it does, you have been blinded by all the lies and manipulation. If the United States continues on the path it is going, well you think about it. Project a little into the future…You will see what I mean and if you don’t, may God bless you. Your going to need it.
