Some Irish Music

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I would like to share this particularly moving rendition of "Danny Boy." It's very touching - have tissues handy!

Crazy Racist Pastor

Check out this link for some pearls of wisdom from Barak Obama's pastor. I really hope people caught up in Obama-mania realize that he looked to a CRAZY RACIST as a spiritual leader.

If this man is Barak's moral compass, his inspiration, and one-time pastor of his church he has attended for decades, should it concern us that Rev. Wright supports the Palestinian terrorism against the Jews? That he claims we deserved the 9/11 attacks because we suppress the black man? That he actually presented the Louis Farrakhan (who, among all of his racist ranting claims to be Jesus) with a lifetime achievement award?!?! Do your research, people, this is serious stuff. Barak spouts sweet nothings about "hope" and "change," while managing to never say anything. That way, he can present himself as a blank slate for people to project their hopes and dreams on. He is slipping in under a foggy cloud of mediocrity, neatly side-stepping any real controversy by avoiding tough issues. (Notice how many times he has simply voted "present" as a senator.) He will solve all our problems, supply all our needs, and create peace and harmony and a lemony fresh scent wherever he goes. Wake up and smell the disgusting stench of racism. Barak is seeking revenge, not office.

Marine Invasion!!

Viacom had the video pulled because it is copyrighted material.
So, you'll have to follow the link to Lex's site off Jess's blog!!
It's worth the couple extra clicks.
I laughed so hard at this video. (You have to laugh to keep from being overwhelmed with disgust at these idiots.) Check out this post at Jess's blog! **Warning** If you watch this with a Marine present, be careful!!

Marines: Get Out!

Zwaggle Update - SCRAPBOOKING

Wow- impressive customer service!! I e-mailed Zwaggle and suggested they add a scrapbooking section. I figured there would be moms (like me) who have accumulated a stash of supplies that we are getting tired of, but can't afford to go buy new stuff!!! Well, I got a response asking for more details from the actual founder of the site. I responded, and within a couple weeks they added an "Arts and Crafts" section with a "Scrapbooking" sub-category. I am anxious now to go through my stash and get rid of all those papers and embellishments that I am tired of looking at. I especially went overboard with the "baby girl" and "It's a girl" stuff. Exactly how many pages did I think I could scrap that say, "It's a girl"?!?!? Not to mention my paper fetish - Argh. My in-laws will be thrilled, since I keep my scrapping supplies over there!!!

So, calling all scrappers: swap your extra scrapping stuff for points!! Keep in mind, they just added this section. Last I checked, there were three items there. Still, the only way it's going to grow is if we put our stuff on there, and spread the word!!! All you scrappers who are cheap like me, this is your chance to trade the old for the new! We may still never have time to scrap, but at least we'll have a better variety in our stash. (Har, Har)
