Acid Rain Update

     This is an "Acid Rain" update. Since Bethany Storro has been accussed of throwing acid on herself and claiming that she was attacked by a black woman, she has appeared in court before a judge to agree to postpone her trial date. The new date is March 9th and she had to waive her right to a speedy trial in order to do so. The trial was postponed due to ongoing negotiations.
     Her face is realluy jacked up! It looks like someone drug her by her face accross uneven pavement. One of the things I can't believe is that people are still using "the black person did it" excuse. I mean come on. Well, let's just hope that she gets what she deserves in March.

Nothing But Net...

Politics Gone Crazy?


A gunman shot a semi-automatic weapon, during a public gathering for Representative Gabrielle Giffords, into the crowd. He shot her in the head and killed Arizona's chief federal judge and five other people. The shooting was aimed at Representative Giffords and left her in critical condition. Twelve other people were wounded including a 9 year-old girl and a U.S. District Judge. The 9 year-old was later pronounced dead in the hospital. People were angry because Giffords supported President Obama's health care plan. They expressed their anger by vandalizing her office in March and, at an earlier event, someone showed up at her rally with a gun. The suspected shooter was identified as Jared Loughner and his motive was not known. He as been described as mentally unstable and may have been acting with an accomplice. His former classmates described him as a pot smoking loner. At one point, he had tried to enlist in the army but was rejected for reasons not disclosed.
     What contributed to this tragic event? Was it all of the hostile political rhetoric that has become associated with the Tea Party and some Republicans? For example, Republican challenger Jesse Kelly urged his supporters to help remove Gifford from office by joining him to shoot an M-16 rifle. Also, Gifford was among 20 Democrats that were posted on Sarah Palin's facebook page with the cross-hairs of a gun scope over each of their districts. Did these events help some devoted supporters go over the edge and act out these threats?
     I feel that all of the threats have contributed to a very hostile political environment. Some of the things that have been said, like all of the racial slurs that were blurted out, anti-gay speech, and anti-semitism rhetoric, makes you wonder what exactly is the agenda of the "Tea Party." Since the Tea Party has gained some steam, more radical Republicans have even jumped on the band wagon. Democratic Congressmen and women had their offices windows smashed and have received threatening phone calls. Is it gonna get worse as the Presidential election is coming up? I thought that everybody claims that it is all for the people. How does further separation in Congress and this senseless violence help the people?

Where Have All The Blackbirds Gone?

     Every once in awhile there comes along an event that defies logic and goes unexplained.  This may very well wind up being another one.  It was like an eerie scene from a horror flick.  On New Year's Eve, in Arkansas, thousands of blackbirds died and crash landed all over streets, roofs, and backyards.  U.S. officials were trying to figure out how this could have possibly happened.  Some officials think that high winds and tornadoes, in the area, could have caused the bizarre event.  Another theory is that maybe fireworks shot in the area could have stressed the birds out so much that they got disorientated.  And maybe even lightening could have struck the flock and killed the birds.  About 100 dead birds were sent to laboratories in Georgia, Arkansas and Wisconsin for examination.  We won't know for sure until these tests results come back.  So what do you think happened?  Everybody rules out the possibility of a disease or virus.  Is that just to cover up some experiment gone bad?  Is this just the beginning of other animals dying off in the future?  And last but not least, is this one of the first signs of the end of the world?  What do you think happened?  Why did all of those birds die?

Where I Have Been...

     It has been a long and tired journey to make it this far.  I haven't been updating my blog regularly because I was in the hospital for the last 2 and a half months.  I went through a lot of tests; from MRI's to Bronchoscopes and everything in-between.  I have had blood taken and have had blood transfusions.  It has taught me to never take anything for granted; even the simplest things.  Before I was admitted in the hospital, I got to the point that I couldn't even walk.  Thank God that an ambulance was called for me when it was because I was just laying in bed scared of what the diagnosis would be when I did actually go to the hospital.  It was a miracle when, out of the blue, my family showed up and off to the hospital I went.  It was scary but, at the same time, I was relieved that I was finally getting the help that I was afraid to ask for.  First, I went to ICU and then it was to the 8th floor to a medium sized room that would wind up being my home for the duration of my stay.  I was isolated there and couldn't leave my room for anything but tests and x-rays.  All I saw were the fours walls that surrounded me, doctors, and nurses.  My computer went on the fritz a couple of weeks earlier so I didn't have a way to update.  But, now that I am back, I will keep the topics coming regularly.  Thanks for any comments and thanks for following!
