Then, on Friday during the G-20 Summit we traversed to downtown Pittsburgh again. We looked for protesters once again, but only ended up finding a few clusters of protesters. Thanks heavens, these protesters were peaceful and actually really nice. One set of protesters actually stopped just so I could take pictures and video of them. Downtown Pittsburgh was very peaceful and the streets were quite desolate. There were bunches of police officers but hardly anyone else walking around downtown. My husband referred to this as the "pleasant face of Martial Law."
Here are some videos and pictures of both days:

King Obama sits on his throne in his sinister lair with his computer right by his side, amidst the mountainous terrain in Poland. Obama has capitulated to Russia and squelched the Missile Defense System that was promised to Poland. The only reason Obama would veer off in this drastic direction is that he has gone looney. Obama traded Russia gold, and the U.S. received mere peanuts in return. The snake(Obama) has made a back door deal with Putin and supposedly promises to create a better Defense Missile shield while stringing Poland along at the same time.
All of a sudden, Obama sees a bright orange light. Clear as day, Its a missile. The orange light gets much brighter, bigger, and even bigger. With his computer Obama fgures out the missile will hit Poland in about 6 hours. He says, AaaaHH!! Its coming at me!! OMG, meanwhile there's NO missile defense shield to protect him or the surrounding area. Well, gosh dangit, Maybe Bush was right afterall? The Missile Shield would have been a great idea!! Maybe, I could save Poland from a horrible disaster with my messianic powers? But, he thinks... I can't betray my fellow fascist, thuglike dictators- Putin, Ahmadinejad(will refer to him as Imad), and Chavez. They are my bros. What the heck has Poland done for me lately? Nothing. Poland has only sent soldiers into Iraq and Afghanistan and supported the Patriotic USA loving Bush. I can't be a part of any of that. I'll just leave Poland to deal with that drat missile.
King Obama fleets off in his commando type plane in warp speed to a far off hideaway place located in Iran, to meet his good budddies Imad, Putin, and Chavez. King Obama's good buddies lead him inside a cave, what is supposed to be a safe place for an extended stay for all of them. Obama says Gee, this kinda looks like the layout of Club Gitmo. A rock falls on his head, and as the iron bars come down, Imad says, The terrorists liked it so much we thought we'd replicate it specfically for YOU. King Obama says, What the hell? People call me the One. Some even call me the messiah. The door closes and through the little window, Obama's so called good buddies tell him, We knew that you were weak. We used you so that we could rule the World. We're much better manipulaters and liars then you are. Plus, that God complex irks us to no end. Imad, Chavez and Putin say, Your way too much of a Christian for us. Obama said, Oh! No! That Christian jargon was just an act and a complete cover up during the election, to get me elected. A says, Oh Well Shit happens. There are only enough riches in the World for us three amigos to sponge off of.
Within an hour Biden receives word from the secret service that Obama has disappeared from Poland. Then, a message comes through from Chavez, Putin, and Imad saying, we have your cowardly pussy of a President. We are holding him until you relinquish all rights to the fortune of America. Biden says, UH! We don't have fortune in America. Haven't you heard that there's a global recession that started with the U.S.? Putin, Chavez and Imad say, Is he really a man? He didn't put up a fight at all. Biden says, Of course, Last I checked, he was a man. Biden says, We need the One, We'll get call you back. Meanwhile all of the national security were in the process of trying to think of a plan to rescue King Obama. Biden says, How about Bush, Cheney, and Chuck Norris? Wicked Witch Pelosi says Hell No! They approve of the use of that enhanced interrogation technique crap. Biden, says, It might be torture, but it works. The Wicked witch Pelosi states, I won't be a part of this unethical business of rescuing the President. The wicked witch goes flying on her broom back to San Francisco.
Biden calls the cowboy trio and they are willing to use their tactics to rescue King Obama. A few CIA agents accompany Bush, Cheney, and Norris to Iran to rescue Obama. Chuck Norris uses his expertise in Karate to capture the Iranian guards. The CIA start the process of gaining intelligence information using a new and particularly vicious enhanced interrogation technique adapted from the works of the late Douglas Adams.
Another hour later, Biden does just that. First, the military intercepts the missile and shoots it down. Then the military headed to Iran and they bomb, bomb Iran. They kill all three of the rogue brutal dictators Putin, Chavez , and Imad. And, King Obama is now safe and sound on his throne in Washington D.C. Thanks to the skilled CIA agents using EIT's, Chuck Norris's karate skills, and Bush and Cheney.

During the anti-war protests from 2003-2007, Pelosi never spoke out against images that depicted George Bush with a Hitler mustache (outrageous!). Both Nazi uniforms and swastikas were quite prevalent at both the anti-war marches and rallies. Pelosi did not denounce them back then. What a damn hypocrite!!
Both Senator Robert Byrd and George Soros compared George Bush to Herbert Goering, who was a top Nazi. These scum filled leaches are utterly disgusting and appalling!!! Al Gore referred to George Bush's computer team who fielded criticisms during the 2004 campaign as, "brownshirts." Harry Reid called Bush both a "Liar" and a "loser." What a bunch of hypocrites!! Organizations from the DailyKos to Moveon.org, to Democratic bloggers called Republicans racists, homophobes, anti-Semites, liars, cheaters, thieves, war mongers, thugs, and worse so these hypocrites have no reason to complain. There decorum during the Bush years was horrendous to say the least. So, now I say to them, shut the hell up and take your comuppance!!! We had to put up with your false hateful crap for eight years and now its our time to stand up for the constitution, freedom, and all that America stands for through the eyes of our founding fathers.
Plus, Joe Wilson was right!!! You damn liberals were just so , so wrong. We put up with you freaking libs being wrong and hateful under Bush for eight years. And, you liberals continue being wrong about pretty much everything related to politics. You are wrong about us conservative freedom fighters. Now, we are continuing to stand up for the TRUTH. Yes, I will say this again, JOE WILSON WAS RIGHT!!!! The 14th amendment of the constitution states that "NO state shall. . . deny to any person within the jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." So, any government paid program for health are would most definitely cover illegal immigrants. Obama had to know that this is in the constitution. Or is he going to play dumb, just like a dirty dog? Well, anyways Obama is either dumb, or a liar. Either way, Obama is just oh so wrong!
Under the Emergency Medical Treatment Act
the Medical screening requirement is:
In the case of a hospital that has a hospital emergency department, if any individual (whether or not eligible for benefits under this subchapter) comes to the emergency department and a request is made on the individual's behalf for examination or treatment for a medical condition, the hospital must provide for an appropriate medical screening examination within the capability of the hospital's emergency department, including ancillary services routinely available to the emergency department, to determine whether or not an emergency medical condition.
I apologized to President Obama for my "you lie" outburst during his recent speech. The President immediately accepted my apology. Yet you and nearly all members of your party in the House of Representatives demanded that I make yet another apology from the floor of the House. I refused and then received an admonishment by resolution -- passed almost completely down party lines.
"Bush is an incompetent leader," you said of the then-sitting president. "In fact, he's not a leader. He's a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon." If a Republican --especially a Southerner -- attacked Obama that way, former President Jimmy Carter would call him or her a racist. Apologize, Madame Speaker.
Sen. Ted Kennedy died never having apologized. Kennedy accused the Bush administration of lying about the intelligence leading up to the Iraq War. "Week after week after week," Kennedy said from the Senate floor, "we were told lie after lie after lie." Please check the rules for a posthumous resolution of admonition.
How about an apology from now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? She played the race card. Before a predominately black audience, Clinton said, "When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation. And you know what I'm talking about."
Imagine attacking Obama's intelligence the way members of your party did to that of President Bush. "I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Neuman is in charge in Washington," said Clinton, referring to the dimwitted icon of Mad magazine. She even used Neuman's catchphrase, "What, me worry?" to describe how Bush handled tough issues.
What about an apology from Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.? Like his colleague, the late senior senator from the Bay State, Kerry also accused Bush of lying. "Their plan," Kerry said on Don Imus' show in 2006, "is lie and die. And that's what they're doing. They lie to America about what's happening on the ground; they lie about why we're there; they lie about what's happening." Kerry, too, questioned Bush's intelligence. As the returns for the 2004 presidential race came in, Kerry said, "I can't believe I'm losing to this idiot." Imagine someone in my party -- based on the current standard of "civility" -- saying something like that about President Obama.
What about Democratic Sen. (and then-minority leader) Harry Reid of Nevada? He called Bush a "loser" and a "liar." Reid apologized for the "loser" comment but let stand "liar."
What about Democratic Rep. John Dingell of Michigan? On ABC's "Nightline," he compared the then-GOP-controlled House to "the Duma and the Reichstag" -- referring to the legislature set up by Czar Nicholas II of Russia and the German Weimar Republic's parliament, which brought Adolf Hitler to power. (Of course, "Bush equals Hitler" posters, swastikas and calls for assassination were commonplace at anti-Bush rallies.)
What about the use of the race card by now-chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Democrat Charlie Rangel of New York? He called President George W. Bush "our Bull Connor." Who was Bull Connor? He was the racist Birmingham, Ala., public safety commissioner who sicced dogs and turned fire hoses on civil rights marchers in the 1960s.

Here is an article by Gil Troy: Playing The Race Card Makes for Ugly Politics
Barack Obama's election to the presidency was supposed to usher in a new, more mature era of race relations, but it could not evoke nirvana. There's a growing chorus complaining that this summer's hostility to his stimulus package, to his health-care reform and to Mr. Obama himself is racist.
I think it's based on racism. There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president,” former president Jimmy Carter said, clearly forgetting the euphoria when Americans elected a black president.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd said she heard “an unspoken word in the air” when Republican Representative Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” during the President's speech to Congress last week: “You lie, boy!” She also located Mr. Obama “at the center of a period of racial turbulence sparked by his ascension.” In fact, Mr. Obama is at the center of a political storm sparked by his leadership – as all presidents have been.
American politics is a contact sport. The long, rich tradition of American centrism does not negate the equally long colorful tradition of American mudslinging and partisanship. It is unfair and itself divisive to impute racial motives to Mr. Obama's opponents without evidence. The shrill opposition reflects the high stakes surrounding the current debate, Americans' enduring ambivalence about big government and the ugly way modern politics plays out in the media, within the blogosphere and on the streets.

EVERY morning, I take a small white pill that makes me think deep philosophical thoughts about the American health care system, the value of life, and the relationship between man and state. No, it is not some illegal psychedelic left over from the 1960s along with my tie-dyed T-shirts. But if you bear with me, I bet this pill will have the same effect on you.
The pill is a statin — a type of pharmaceutical developed over the last few decades to lower a person’s cholesterol. My father died of cardiovascular disease, and unfortunately I inherited his genetic predisposition. Yet I am hoping that modern medicine will help me avoid his fate. So like millions of middle-age men, I take my little pill every morning.
Here is the question I ask as the pill passes through my lips: Is it worth it?
Now you might be tempted to say, “Of course it is.” Most people would prefer to avoid an early death. If the wonders of modern science might put off the inevitable for a while longer, why not give it a shot?
And that is, indeed, how I thought about the decision when my doctor recommended the treatment. One thing I did not consider was the price. Like most consumers of health care, I was insulated from economic concerns. I knew that the insurance company — and, indirectly, all its policyholders — would pick up most of the tab. This arrangement, encouraged by the tax system, ensures that I get the benefit of the pills while paying little of the extra costs they generate.
An optimist might hope that my doctor, or someone higher up in the health care hierarchy, made a rational cost-benefit calculation on society’s behalf. To figure out whether my treatment makes sense, one would have to weigh the cost of the drug against the benefit of an extended life. And to do that, one would have to put a dollar value on my life — the kind of calculation that makes everyone but economists squirm.
Not long ago, I read that a physician estimated that statins cost $150,000 for each year of life saved. That approximate figure reflects not only the dollars patients and insurance companies spend on the treatment but also — and just as important — an estimate of how effective it is in prolonging life. (That number is for men. Women have a lower risk of heart disease.)
That estimate is, at best, approximate, but it certainly suggests that preventive care is not always cheap. The magnitude of the figure also brings to mind hard questions of political philosophy. CONTINUED

Do you as parents really want Planned Parenthood in your child/childrens public school? Hell NO!!There is a high probability that this will happen if H.R. 3200 is passed in congress. In section 2511 (pages 993-1001) of H.R. 3200, there is a provision that is made for "School-Based Health Clinics (SBHC)." 'Under the provisions of this section, the Secretary of Health and Human Services is directed to “establish a school-based health clinic program” which will locate clinics “in, or...adjacent to a school facility” a clinic which is “administered by a sponsoring facility.” '
A "sponsoring facility" can be a hospital, a public health department, a community health center, or a nonprofit agency. This is where Planned Parenthood comes into play. Planned Parenthood is a non for profit (c) (3) organization that proudly grandstands the fact they operate "850 health centers" across the United States. "Under H.R. 3200, each one of these “health centers” is eligible to become a “sponsoring facility” of a school-based health clinic."
With President Obama and Secretary of Health & Human Services Kathleen Sebelius being staunch supporters of abortion rights, how much of a chance do you think there is that they choose not to take advantage of this opportunity to indoctrinate and propogandize school kids into their pro-choice army? I think that it is very likely that this exact thing will happen. My suggestion is to take your kids out of public schools before they are brainwashed with liberalism garbage. We must stop this bill from being passed in any form. This is only one example of how Obama and his administration want to squash your parental rights and propogandize your kids into believing that being "Pro-Choice" is the right way to go. Abortion is evil. Abortion is wrong. All life is precious, especially the UNBORN. Parents, this is the time to stand up for your children and fight against this bill. This provision is one more example of the type of control and indoctrination Obama wants to have over your kids. This is utterly outrageous!!
And, Yes, these clinics will be federally funded. Your taxpayer dollars will go to this horrendous propoganda that promotes the murder of our most precious babies. This bill expressly says that “funds awarded under a grant under this section” may be used for “the payment of salaries for health professionals and other appropriate SBHC personnel.” Hell, freakin, NO!! I am not paying tax dollars to fund anything related to Planned Parenthood. In addition, the Secretary of HHS is directed to “begin awarding grants” for these SBHCs “not later than July 1, 2010.”
July 1, 2010.” So, we must stop this NOW!!! This must be made known to the public. The Obama administration is ready to start the process of indoctrinating kids even before the bill would go into effect, if passed. This bill must be stopped. This bill is not about health care. This bill is about power and control. And, if they can get their hands on your kids and control kids thoughts and their value systems, instead of the parent, then the parent is screwed. Parents, I hope you fight back against this intrusion into your kids lives and fight for your right to teach your kids what principles and values you see fit. Don't let this administration encroach on your parental rights.

I am so sick of liberal hypocrisy. I'd like to see Pelosi's face against astroturf. Hell, maybe it would even help her face? These liberal companies pay for a person's political involvement while we conservatives volunteer our time and attend authentic grassroots events. Conservatives are not paid for their participation, unlike liberals at liberal events. And, speaking of hippies I unfortunately had to encounter a know it all hippie yesterday. And my rant continues here.

September 11, 2001 is a day that will be ingrained in my mind forever. We must honor the FALLEN who died on this tragic day. We must never let the enemy slide through the cracks as they did that day. We must continue defending the nation against the terrorists. Evil came to us on that fateful day and we must continue to battle against this evil. As Americans we all came together on Sept. 11. WE MUST NEVER FORGET SEPTEMBER 11, 2001!!
This is corruption at its worst. And, what's worse is that this criminal enterprise is being funded by the government, which means oh yes, your tax dollars are going for criminal acts.
ACORN must be stopped and disbanded!!
Here are the videos:

This is my first post on my new blog. I just wanted to let everyone know that this blog will include ponderings on absolutely everything. My rants and raves will include a broad spectrum of issues related to being a married college student. For awhile I have been fascinated by the Hippo and that is why I used that animal in the name of my blog.What is quite puzzling to me and quite frankly I can't understand is why some people seem to care more about the welfare of terrorists who want to kill us than the the defense of the United States and the governments right to defend all of its citizens.

Patrick Courrielche who works in creating arts initiatives and is a former employer of the NEA's Director of Communications, was invited to participate in a conference call by the National Endowment for the Arts on August 10th. When he attended the conference call that was hosted by the NEA, the White House Office of Public Engagement, and United We Serve, all of the participants in the phone call were asked to promote positive change. The people were urged to use their artwork to promote Barack Obama's political policies such as health care and energy and the environment. "The service was to be attached to the President’s United We Serve campaign, a nationwide federal initiative to make service a way of life for all Americans."
"We were encouraged to bring the same sense of enthusiasm to these “focus areas” as we had brought to Obama’s presidential campaign, and we were encouraged to create art and art initiatives that brought awareness to these issues. Throughout the conversation, we were reminded of our ability as artists and art professionals to “shape the lives” of those around us. The now famous Obama “Hope” poster, created by artist Shepard Fairey and promoted by many of those on the phone call, and will.i.am’s “Yes We Can” song and music video were presented as shining examples of our group’s clear role in the election.
Obama has a strong arts agenda, we were told, and has been very supportive of both using and supporting the arts in creative ways to talk about the issues facing the country. We were “selected for a reason,” they told us. We had played a key role in the election and now Obama was putting out the call of service to help create change. We knew “how to make a stink,” and were encouraged to do so. "
Patrick was disturbed and uncomfortable with this call to service by the White House. He asked himself, is this the role of the NEA? And, come to find out this type of tool used by the State is never mentioned as one of the National Endowment for the Arts policies or initiatives. I am outraged!!! I guess the Obama administration is planning on using the NEA to recruit members for Obama's civilian army. Gee, Is Obama beginning to look a lot like Hitler? The power abuse that this president has committed since he took office eight months ago has been on a scale of magnitude both vast and profound.
Imagine the outcry that the public would have raised if Bush administration had asked the NEA to get artists to promote the Iraq War?

According to New York rabbi Gary Moscowitz, pretty much anybody could walk into a synagogue, "say 'Shabbat shalom,' and then blow the place up and start shooting." Or, he says, they could just run in with a gun screaming "Allah akhbar, or whatever." It's for this reason, and recent threats to city temples, that he started the International Security Coalition of Clergy in Kew Gardens, Queens. The former cop is training fellow rabbis how to become rogue warriors and fight back under various attack scenarios, teaching them how to shoot guns, use everyday objects (like folding tables — you need to watch the video) as protection, use hand-to-hand combat, and defend against hostage-takers. So far the group has had 100 hours of training. Of course, Jewish law forbids carrying guns on the Sabbath, but some rabbis are willing to compromise on this. "Jews are not like Christians," Moscowitz said. "If I turn my cheek, I'm coming around to make a kick."

Here is some of the fabulous
musical talent at Hotel Gitmo!!!
Eric Holder, one of Obama's Chicago TOP THUGS has just ordered a special investigation of our CIA AGENTS, and how they kept the United States safe for over eight years. These CIA agents were following and carrying out their orders for President Bush in response to the catastrophic terrorist attacks of September 11. Attorney General Eric Holder appointed John Durham, who is a career Justice Department prosecutor from Connecticut. These CIA agents are patriots serving our country and had a duty to protect us from another terrorist attack by gaining information. What the hell do these liberal pansies want us to do in order to thwart another terrorist attack? Libtards just want CIA agents to sit down peacefully with terrorists who are wiling to die for their cause. Liberals think that these terrorists who have been trained on how to kill, mutilate, behead and commit other horrific acts are just going to spill their guts about future attacks. These Chicago pussies have no clue what it takes to keep a country safe from terrorists. They just want to sing Kum Ba Yah and hold their hands and hope everything will turn out okay for U.S.
If I was in the CIA I would refuse to perform any interrogations at all unless I received a pardon from President Obama. This has immensely lowered the morale of our fine CIA agents who are supposed to be protecting us and gaining information to avert other terroristic threats, or attacks. Obama says he wants to move forward but he's not and by him ordering Eric Holder to conduct these CIA investigations proves that. He even said that he wanted these investigations to happen during the presidential campaign.He is trying to have it both ways which is really scummy in my book.
In a Washington Times article , Ben Conery stated regarding Eric Holder, "He made the decision over the opposition of CIA Director Leon E. Panetta and despite the often-stated wishes of President Obama to "look forward" and not become entangled in a debate over the past practices of the war on terror.
In a New York Times article, Scott Shane and Mark Mazetti wrote: "But the strong impression that emerges from the documents, many with long passages blacked out for secrecy, is by no means one of gung-ho operatives running wild. It is a portrait of overwhelming control exercised from C.I.A. headquarters and the Department of Justice — control Bush administration officials say was intended to ensure that the program was safe and legal."
Managers, doctors and lawyers not only set the program’s parameters but dictated every facet of a detainee’s daily routine, monitoring interrogations on an hour-by-hour basis.
"The interrogators’ objective," the background paper says, "is to transition the HVD to a point where he is participating in a predictable, reliable and sustainable manner." The policy was to use the "least coercive measure" to achieve the goal. The harsh treatment began with the "attention slap," and for three prisoners of the nearly 100 who passed through the program, the endpoint was waterboarding.
"Elaborate care went into figuring out the precise gradations of coercion," said David B. Rivkin Jr., a lawyer who served in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. "Yes, it’s jarring. But it shows how both the lawyers and the nonlawyers tried to do the right thing."
Among the chilling details in the documents, titled "Khalid Sheikh Mohammad: Preeminent Source On Al-Qaeda" and "Detainee Reporting Pivotal for the War Against Al Qaeda":
• The identities of key participants in an al Qaeda program to develop the ability to mount anthrax attacks.
• The identities of about 70 people whom al Qaeda had "deemed suitable for Western attacks."
In a Fox News Poll, 94 % of Americans do not want an investigation to happen. So, What the hell happened to Obama's promise to listen to the American people? That went out the window, along with most of his other promises.
"Detainee reporting has helped thwart a number of Al-Qaeda plots to attack targets in the West and elsewhere," one of the reports said. That included plots to fly planes into buildings on the West Coast, setting off bombs in U.S. cities and planning to employ a network of Pakistanis to target gas stations, railroad tracks and the Brooklyn Bridge.
"These documents suggest that enhanced interrogation techniques prevented terrorist attacks and protected our country," said Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, which filed the request under the Freedom of Information Act.
The two CIA documents that were just recently released, have proven that indeed Dick Cheney was right all along regarding the effectivess of the enhanced interogation techniques.
The EIT's did WORK!!!! The high-amount of effectiveness that the enhanced interrogation techniques had led to an overwhelming domino effect of captures and information regarding future terrorist attacks.
Because of the Fact that Enhanced Interrogation Techniques
Worked Effectively, They Created a Domino Effect.
An article by Rowan Scarborough, in the Human Events Newspaper dissected the recently released CIA documents very well. Here are some facts that the article pointed out:
1) After being water-boarded, Abu Zubaydah started singing like a canary, and revealed the name of a high-value Al-Qaeda member named, Khalid Shaik Mohammed (KSM), as the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
2) KSM was captured. And, after being water-boarded he divulged high-value information ranging from how Al-Qaeda operated, ranging from the finances to recruitmant, revealed other attack plans, and the names of other terrorists who had not before been identified. KSM admitted to funneling money to Al-Qaeda operative Majid Khan.
3) The CIA captured Khan, and admitted giving the money to another operative named Zumbair. Zumbair admitted working with Hambali, an Al-Qaeda leader in South Africa who pulled off the horrific 2002 Bali, Indonesia bombings that killed 240 people.
4)Khan's information led to the capture of Hambali, who is now at Guantanomo Bay, Cuba. Then, Khan gave up the name of Hanbali's brother Rasmun Gunawan as his successor in Africa.
5) Gunawan was captured and ended up giving up mega doses of high-value information such as: He provided a vast array of mobs of terrorists to travel to Kurachi, Pakistan for training,and it was in their plans to send KSM to groom them to travel to the U.S. and unleash attacks. One attack envisioned by KSM as an encore to Sept. 11 was to hijack more aircraft and fly them into skyscrapers around the United States.
Other Plots Foiled:
1) KSM had recruited an Ohio truck driver named Iyman Faris-to kill Americans. He was arrested while it was in the planning stages. He was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
2) Khalid exposed yet another plot that he was conspiring with Sayf al Rahman Paracha to smuggle explosives into the U.S., to bomb buildings in New York City. Paracha was located and arrested before he could set off bombs, and is sitting in Guatanomo Bay, Cuba.
3) Bomb U.S. embassy in Pakistan
4) Truck- bomb the U.S. military base on the Horn of Africa and
5) to fly into airport terminals at Heathrow Airport.
According to the CIA Report titled, " Detainee Reporting Pivotal for the War Against Al-Qaeda", it concludes that "Detainee reporting has helped thwart a number of al Qaeda plots to attack targets in the West and elsewhere. Not only have detainees reported on potential targets and techniques that al Qaeda operational planners have considered but arrests also disrupted attack plans in progress."
Are the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques
the Reason Why We Have Not
Been Attacked in Over Eight Years?

Last night, I watched two candidates running for the senate seat in Pa face off on the health care debate at Muhlenbergh College in Pa. Pat Toomey and Joe Sestak are two candidates who want to oust Arlen Specter from his senatorial seat in 2010. Pat Toomey is in the lead in the Republican primary, according to a Rasmussen poll. Pat Toomey's popularity spread like wildfire among Republicans, and then Sen. Arlen Specter like the opportunist that he is, ran to the Democrats like he was scared. Joe Sestak is challenging Arlen Specter in the Democratic Primary. The two both agree that health care reform is needed but disagree on how to fix it.
When Sestak spoke during his opening statement he looked like he was auditioning for Broadway. Sestak is against Tort Reform. He claims that it is only a very small percentage of the health care problem. Sestak said, competition is important but he doesn't want to open up the borders so that citizens can cross state lines to buy health insurance. As the debate moved along Sestak started with this dramatic sob stories, and then looked like he was going to cry. To me, he was acting like a drama queen. It was like he was trying to gain the sympathy vote, or something. Sestak was there defending and promoting Obama's health care bill.
Toomey said that we need to change the way we pay for health care, that access to health care is a problem, and that escalating costs is also a problem. Toomey said that big government mandates, huge new taxes on both workers and employers is not the correct way to fix the health care problem. Toomey is pro Tort Reform. Toomey is positively for opening up the borders so that there can be more competition among insurance companies and citizens will be able to cross state lines to buy health insurance policies. This type of competition would almost certainly force the health insurance companies to lower the costs related to health care. In Pat Toomey describing U.K.'s health care, he said that the U.K. has commissions who decides who gets health care and who doesn't. And, the commission has stated that one person's life for 6 months is worth $23,000. That is exactly how much Britain will spend on a person's health care over a 6 month period. Plus, Toomey stated that a huge number of Canadians cross over the border to the United States to gain better access to health care.
Sestak was like a guy in an empty suit. He wasn't very inspiring at all. He was boring. His answers seemed like they were in some type of code. Toomey was straightforward. In my opinion, he was on fire and nailed every question. Toomey, a former business owner, even made the connection of how Obama's health care bill would affect small business owners.

Emergency Update Bird Flu FEMA Coffin Connection -
One of my good twitter friends sent me this video and neither one of us know how true this is, but, I have heard rumors concerning the bird flu vaccine to be used to actually spread the H1N1 virus. This is some extremely scary shi*t. I just hope that the rumors aren't true. Below, is an article I found regarding Homeland Security planning the mass vaccinations of children and the dangers of what's in the vaccine.
In an article by Dr. Mercola, he stated that "According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall."
First, Dr. Mercola says that the vaccine is an extremely high risk to your children. Less than 100 children die from seasonal flu viruses, and if you go the estimations made by the Australia model than there could be 100 additional children that could potentially die from the H1N1 virus. But, If Sebelius is correct about children being the first group to be targeted to receive the vaccine, than more than 75 million children would be injected with a fast tracked vaccine containing novel adjuvents including dangerous squalene. Should children really be subjected to this when there is an equivalent number of deaths among children who catch the flu virus each year? Any loss of life is tragic and especially a child's, but is this prevention method over the top and to the extreme? Is this unnecessary? The dangerous adjuvent squalene is known to cause a host of debilitating autoimmune diseases. Plus, the fact that Homeland Security is planning the unnecessary mass injection of millions of children is a reckless, dangerous plan.
Dr. Mercola says, "When a virus is injected into your body in a vaccine, and especially when combined with an immune adjuvant like squalene, your IgA immune system is bypassed and your body’s immune system kicks into high gear in response to the vaccination. Injecting organisms into your body to provoke immunity is contrary to nature, and vaccination carries enormous potential to do serious damage to your health. Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns. Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of government and the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions from their vaccines."
"Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties."
"The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant."
"Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.
Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene.MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets. A test was developed to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients, and a clear link was established between the contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who had been injected with the vaccine containing squalene."
According to Dr. Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., a former principle research scientist for the government of Australia:
“… this adjuvant [squalene] contributed to the cascade of reactions called "Gulf War Syndrome," documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War.
The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, Sjorgren’s syndrome, chronic diarrhoea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.”
"There is virtually no science to support the safety of vaccine injections on your long-term health or the health of your children."
