Ferguson MO....Hands Up, Don't Shoot


Do we live in a zoo? Because all I see at the moment are a bunch of animals!  
Actually, to compare them to animals is unfair because most animals do not act as barbaric as what I am seeing. What am I looking at? The riots, looting and violence in Ferguson MO all because of the death of Michael Brown, who was dubbed "The Gentle Giant."  As details are emerging, Michael Brown is looking less like a "Gentle Giant" and more like a criminal, thief, thug _____________ (you can fill in the blank.  Not to long before the altercation with the cop, Brown and his friend (Dorian Johnson) strong-arm robbed a liquor store. 

 This same "friend/accomplice" is also being used as a "credible" witness to what happened, even after admitting he and Michael took part in the robbery  


They say he was unarmed but I ask you this... Can your fist be a weapon?  In this case and many others, the answer is absolutely, especially considering the police officer has broken bones in his orbital area (eyes). 
Knowing he probably was filled with adrenaline from the robbery (and pot per toxicity report) definitely gives us a glimpse of what Darren Wilson was up against.  A 6ft 4', 300lb man that is throwing a fist into your face. How would you react? I would have done the same thing!
 Did Brown go for the gun, we may never know.  We can only take the officer's word for it, which at this point, facts are supporting.  The "witnesses" that say he was running away with his hands up, were proved wrong with the autopsy report, as there are no bullets in his back.


Darren Wilson now lives his life in fear.   He was a 6 year veteran that received a commendation for 'extraordinary effort in the line of duty' in February.  Yet people judge him without knowing any facts.  Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?



My biggest issue with all this is the looting and "protesting" going on after the event. Using your 1st Amendment Right to protest what you perceive is an injustice is a right that we all have in this country. That isn't what happened.  Instead of waiting till all the facts are in and then deciding what the best action to take was, they came in like a pack of wolves and destroyed everything in sight.  Why?  Will it bring Brown back?  What exactly were they protesting?  That a cop killed a criminal? Or was it only that a white cop shot a innocent black kid that was just getting ready for college?  Unfortunately as more information is revealed the picture that is forming is a criminal that went after the cop and ended up losing his life for it.  Forensics don't lie and in the end, that will tell us the full story of what did or did not happen.

Shades of Grey...Porn?

I usually love Matt Walsh's blogs but this one was an exception!!

http://themattwalshblog.com/2014/07/25/women-america-4-reasons-hate-50-shades-grey/

There is a big difference between condemning the book and condemning the person reading the book. If you think the book is smut then you are most definitely within your right as an American and a Christian. This attack on those who read and liked the book is showing so much more about you than the reader him/her self. 


John 8:7 "When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."

Luke 6:41 "A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher. 41"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 42"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye."

Romans 2:1
"You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things"
Just as you can find scriptures on this kind of "evil," I can find just as many against judging and condemning other people. Just like Samantha, I am usually the one on the Christain side of most issues and defending my beliefs. If this was just about saying the book was bad and describing why I wouldn't have a problem with it, even though I may disagree. When you start name calling and casting judgement on those who don't agree with your opinion, do you really think you are answering God's calling? Are you perfect, because last I checked, nobody was. Have you ever looked at a man and thought "Wow, he is hot!" (In God's eyes you committed adultery) Have you ever looked at someone else and wish you had something of theirs? (money, car, looks, ring, job, etc) You broke one of the Ten Commandments. I try to witness to others through my actions and love, but certainly not by looking down on them and thinking your superior. That doesn't bring anyone to Christ!! If anything it pushes people away. We all make judgments every day but when you take it to this extreme and start going after people it crosses that fine line.


LOVED this response!!!! Couldn't have said it better!

Dear Matt,

I am an ultra-conservative, non-feminist, married, adult woman who generally agrees with your blogs, but I have to say, this one has left me quite insulted.

1) I don’t disagree that the book was poorly written; it was. It was awful. But so are lots of books. There is a plot, and who are we to decide what others can read or not? Your reference to stabbing your eye out with a screwdriver just rings of extreme drama to me. It sounds like the Goodreads reviews. Some reviewers would also rather stab their eyes out, as well as declare that E.L. James’ eyes should be cut out and her hands and tongue cut off so that there is no possibility of her ever writing another story. I think that is quite extreme and not very Christian, imho.

2) It is a marketing ploy, but so are many (all?) movies. They are in the business of making money by delivering films that people want to see. The ’50 Shades’ novels were a hit. It isn’t surprising or worthy of condemnation that someone saw fit to adapt this particular novel to film. We can argue the morality of bringing anything questionable to film, that’s fine, but again, it’s not exclusive to ’50 Shades’.

3) This is where my ire begins. You declare that this is anti-Christian. Perhaps it is, but not in the ways that you are getting at, and to read it or watch it does not make one anti-Christian. I read these books b/c I was a librarian and my patrons were wanting to check it out and I thought I should be informed as it relates to my job. Does that make me unChristian? This series didn’t corrupt me. It changed nothing about what I believe or think and did not lead me to sins that I would have otherwise not committed. I rolled my eyes a lot, and laughed a lot, and at the end, found myself somewhat surprised that there was actually a bit of a plot to the thing after all was said and done. I had no expectations going into it, knowing that this was Twilight fan fiction that somehow became popular, so admittedly it didn’t take much to exceed my expectations.
However, this is where I don’t agree with you. You are looking at this through a man’s perspective. Men watch/read/look at porn for a purpose, and that is not the way that women work (in general, I do not speak for ALL women). I read plenty of romance, but it’s not to ‘get off’ or for immoral purposes and I do not look at on-screen men lustfully. Women (at least some of them) are interested in these stories for the ROMANCE, not the sex. I would have had the same opinion of this novel with or without the graphic scenes. I discussed this particular blog post with a friend, and she admitted to skipping the sex scenes while she read it. They certainly didn’t add to the story. But interestingly, you DIDN’T READ IT. There is a plot. It might be a sorry one, but that is a matter of opinion, and everyone has different tastes. I don’t think men in general like romance novels. (Surprise!)
At any rate, I think it’s a stretch to compare it to porn, or at the least, it’s offensive that blanket statements and opinions are being made where they are not applicable. I stand by that also b/c I don’t think even porn affects women the way it affects men. I can’t say I’ve ever heard about a woman with porn addiction. I think that is b/c we are built differently and that kind of thing affects us differently (i.e…not at all. :P). Now, if there are full out nudity scenes in the film, which I don’t know b/c I haven’t seen it, I’m not saying I think that’s okay, but I don’t think it’s any worse than any other film that contains nudity. I find it very interesting that female nudity is much more prevalent than male, but I think that is just evidence of what I stated above; it’s because it ‘sells’ to men, while it doesn’t do much to increase women’s interest, b/c it doesn’t affect us the same.

Finally 4) as for the ‘abuse’, and ‘anti-feminism’ aspect of your conclusion, I think you are quite wrong, and you would know that if you had actually read it. For one thing, what two people do behind closed doors is no one’s business. You can argue the morality of pre-marital sex, and I wouldn’t disagree with you, but as for the MANNER in which two people have sex, that is not anyone’s business. If my husband likes to tie me up and I like it, too, then who’s business is it but ours? No, it may not be something that appeals to YOU or 90% of the population, but again, I don’t see what difference it makes and I don’t believe it’s inherently evil.
This is the key that makes me vehemently deny this is demeaning to women. Ana (the protagonist) has a choice the entire time, and she makes the choice to go along with everything b/c she LIKES it. When Christian crosses the line, and goes too far SHE LEAVES HIM. How is that anti-feminist? Ana stood up for herself and she left! I think if anything THIS shows women empowerment b/c she made it clear that she would not put up with it. And guess what? If you read the rest of the books, Christian CHANGES. He IS a little whacked, but his experience with Ana and the love they come to have changes him. Is THAT unrealistic? Probably. But that’s a romance, and that’s what happens in romances. Honestly, what happens in this romance is that they reach a compromise, satisfying both of their preferences, which is in a VERY broad sense, what makes marriage work: mutual compromise. So, even *gasp* a lesson to be learned if one knows where to look.
I don’t disagree with the immorality of ‘hooking up’ and relationships solely for sex. I don’t disagree that nudity on the big screen is too common. I don’t disagree that this story is not very well done. But once again, this isn’t exclusive to ’50 Shades’. Watch any primetime drama, or the majority of movies that are on the big screen. I can’t think of many (if any) that don’t involve these things. I feel your attack on this specific film is missing the mark. Attack them all, or none. Or attack this one, but don’t give the impression that anyone who didn’t reach your conclusions is stupid, corrupt, wicked, sinful, and anti-Christian. That is what this post made me feel. Judged. B/c I didn’t feel this way about the story. I don’t believe that reading something wicked makes you wicked or that it is corrupting, and the only thing that was morally questionable about this novel is the fact that they were not married before they had sex. Nearly all novels are going to contain scenes or events that are not moral. You wouldn’t be able to read anything if you are required to avoid them. You couldn’t watch the news, either, b/c people in real life do bad things all the time. Just b/c I read about them, doesn’t make me do them. I can read about adultery and it doesn’t make me want to go cheat on my husband. I can read about murder and not feel like killing people. And novels that contain these things aren’t wicked simply b/c they contain them. Often, reading about things like that helps drive home the reality of why they are wrong. And in THIS case, no, I don’t really believe that women are reading or watching ’50 Shades of Grey’ and deciding they need to go out and let a man tie them up and spank them, nor do I believe it’s leading women to premarital sex that aren’t already doing it anyway. There are problems, but the root goes much deeper than one novel-gone-film. If you truly are interested in convincing women not to support it, you should definitely rethink your approach. I feel you skimmed the surface, and did not truly touch on the heart of the real issues going on, while insulting everyone who didn’t hate the novel.
That being said, I don’t intend to watch the film, either, b/c as most movies go, I imagine the big screen adaptation will focus on nothing but sex & nudity, and miss the point of the novel entirely.

Where Is My Country? If You Find It Let Me Know!

Where on earth is the country that I grew up on?


Where a kid could twirl a pencil in his hand, eat a pop tart, make a gesture with his fingers and not get expelled or suspended for having a "gun" in school.


Where your word actually meant something.

Where hospitals kidnap children and use them as guinea pigs for psychiatric drugs so doctors and drug companies can line their pockets with "drug money."



Where a president actually loves his country and the people in it.  Where a president embraces freedom and fights for it and does not aid and abet the enemy.




Where breaking the law actually had consequences rather than trying to provide amnesty and other resources to those that break it.


Where we were economically, morally and military strong.

Where a lie was really a lie and you were called out on it instead of it being covered up by the media and politicians.

Where people's lives actually held value rather than being expendable when they no longer became important or threatened exposure.





Where you could send your kids to school without fearing the absolute crap they are being indoctrinated on.



Where America is a powerhouse and people actually respected us rather than us being a complete joke.

Where being patriotic was a good thing and something to be proud of.



Where you didn't live with the fear of always offending someone when expressing an opinion.

Where the American Flag was something to be respected and a sober reminder of the sacrifices of our military.


Where immigrants came to this country legally and blended in instead of trying to change the country.

Where the Constitution mattered to Congress and the president.



Where personal responsibility was expected rather than looked down upon.

Where welfare wasn't a way of making a living.



This is a total different country than what I was raised in.

 I am saddened that this is the country that my children are growing up in.  All I can do is pray for this nation that so desperately needs it and teach my children the morals and values that our parents have passed on to us.

Americans Do NOT Negotiate With Terrorists!




Was this a case of "Terrorist In Training?"  5 years of experience to come home and blow up his "fellow" Americans?

I am in such a state of numbness about the newest betrayal from our so called "president."  I truly thought I was beyond shock, beyond disgust, beyond the ability of Obama to horrify me, but indeed, he has reached an all time low.  His lies are typical.  Fast & Furious was horrible.  Benghazi was an absolute disgrace.  IRS scandal, VA neglect.... either he is a complete imbecile or an evil genius.  The jury is still out on that one.  He has made this country a weak, tattered, debt ridden, empty shell of the country it used to be!  That is not the kind of country I want to leave to my children and I have nothing but contempt for the man who made it this way.  But I digress.....


Terrorist In Training?

US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, an "American soldier" and deserter got captured by the Taliban.He spent 5 years in captivity and was traded for five mid- to high- level Taliban being sent to Qatar from the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. 

Questions began to arise when Anti-American statements and actions were revealed. What was his true role?  Hostage? Spy? Deserter? Traitor? Afghan sympathizer?  Will he be thrown in prison for going AWOL?  Murder charges? We have to wait and see.  Below is detailed information on his actions and statements.


Obama freed 5 terrorists, (5 men that want us DEAD) in exchange for a soldier that was a deserter, and bypassed Congress to do it. 




His little walk off base killed 6 of our soldiers in their attempt to get him back.  How many lives are now at risk because Obama set the terrorists free? If one of Obama's terrorist buddies happens to blow up another airplane or bomb another building, the blood will be on his hands and his hands alone! Then again, to Obama, these lives are just another casualty of his presidency.

Bowe's fathers' first words were in Arabic because he wasn't sure if he would still understand English.  I laughed at the outrageous claim, but you know what... it really isn't funny!  

I can't help but wonder if this is Obama's way of "closing Guantanamo Bay?"  




"Sgt. Bergdahl seems to have grown disillusioned with the mission, bitter about the Army and especially higher ranking enlisted men and officers, and simply walked off – gone “outside the wire” or protective base limits – and disappeared."
“The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at,” he wrote from Afghanistan. “It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies. The few good SGTs are getting out as soon as they can, and they are telling us privates to do the same."
"I am sorry for everything here," Bergdahl wrote at another point "These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live."
In his final message, Bergdahl refers to having mailed home boxes with his uniforms and books.
“Feel free to open them, and use them,” he wrote.
Later that night, Bowe Bergdahl’s father Bob Bergdahl, a UPS truck driver, sent his son an email from their home in Hailey, Idaho, with the subject line: OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!
"Dear Bowe," he wrote. "In matters of life and death, and especially at war, it is never safe to ignore ones' conscience. Ethics demands obedience to our conscience. It is best to also have a systematic oral defense of what our conscience demands. Stand with like minded men when possible. dad."

From Rolling Stone...

  “Ordinary soldiers, especially raw recruits facing combat for the first time, respond to the horror of war in all sorts of ways,” Rolling Stone observed. Bowe Bergdahl “decided to walk away.”

“In the early-morning hours of June 30th, according to soldiers in the unit, Bowe approached his team leader not long after he got off guard duty and asked his superior a simple question: If I were to leave the base, would it cause problems if I took my sensitive equipment?
“Yes, his team leader responded – if you took your rifle and night-vision goggles, that would cause problems.
“Bowe returned to his barracks, a roughly built bunker of plywood and sandbags. He gathered up water, a knife, his digital camera and his diary. Then he slipped off the outpost.”

Where Kids Help Kids With Research... Bazinga!



Sounds so innocent doesn't it? The whole kids helping kids part makes you feel all fuzzy inside until you realize that it's at your child's expense. I'm going to lay the facts out there and let you come up with your own conclusions.

The Clinical Investigation Policy and Procedure Manual from Boston Childrens Hospital says this:


"Children who are Wards of the state may be included in research that presents minimal risk or greater than minimal risk with a prospect of direct benefit."

Sooooo basically, if  DCF gets custody of a child, they become your guinea pig that has minimal risk or direct benefit. . Ok, got it.  Well, this obviously isn't it, because Justina did not get better.


"Children who are Wards of the state may be included in research that presents greater than minimal risk with no prospect of direct benefit  or only if the IRB determines and documents that such research is related to their status as wards; or 

 conducted in schools, camps, hospital, institutions, or similar settings in which the 

majority of children involved as participants are not wards"

Ok, this gets even better... basically saying that they can pretty much do whatever the hell they want to your child, even if it is life threatening as long as the are wards of the state. All they have to say is this loaded bit here... "such research is related to their status as wards"  Of course it does.  If they take the child away claiming "medical child abuse" then diagnose Justina with Somatoform, they have 24/7 access to her and complete, unchecked power.  It doesn't matter if you are a parent or single, sick or healthy...this should scare the living crap out of you!!


The law says that DCF must try to unite families, not destroy them. (cough, cough) Sorry had something in my throat.

Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 119, Section 1 says: "It is hereby declared to be the policy of this Commonwealth to direct its efforts, first, to the strengthening and encouragement of family life for the protection and care of children . . ." 


Did I read that right?  Encourage family life?  In what possible way is DCF trying to bring families together?  Oh, I see... they are putting them through this nightmare so the remaining family could be closer?  No?  Then by all means enlighten me!!  Please! 


There are a few questions that I have for DCF and BCH because I can't imagine it would be possible in America to take away a child on a trumped up charge of medical abuse when the family was only following doctors orders.


1.  If you are sooo concerned that the Pelletiers are "medically abusing" Justina, why did you leave Jessica in their custody when she has the exact same thing as Justina does?


2. If it was Somatoform, like the "doctors" (in quotes because they are not doctors in my eyes) say it is, why after a whole year is she WORSE than when she was being treated for Mitochondrial Disease.


3.  If you are so confident in your diagnosis, why are you dead set against a second opinion?


4.  If there is nothing shady going on why would a judge put a gag order on everyone involved making it impossible to investigate the case?


5.  How did you in only 3 days was it decided that Justina had Somatoform, determine there was "medical abuse" by her family, call DCF and get a judge to issue custody to the state and incidentally BCH?  


It took me 17 years to get diagnosed with Dysautonomia.  It astonishes me that you had the ability to do all that in 3 days.  In all my hospital visits it took forever to get labs back and get test results, let alone, to contradict a diagnosis that top doctors and hospitals had given me.


So what we have here is simple math...  BCH + DCF = Research on guinea pigs, Ahem...I mean research on children.


I was once told  "If it looks like a duck and walks/quack/flies etc. like a duck, it is a duck" and from the quacks in charge of this case, I can only conclude..IT'S A FREAKING DUCK!!

Who Was The Real Victim?



Dennis McGuire was a murderer and a rapist!  He had the blood of 3 victims on his hands.  Joy was expecting a child and her husband ultimately took his own life after losing his newlywed wife and unborn child. Dennis strangled her.  He slit Joy Stewart's throat, not once, but twice, and severed the carotid artery and jugular vein.  She was anally sodomized. To top it off, he tried to frame his brother-in-law for the murder.

Dennis was tried and sentenced to death.  His execution took 25 minutes.  I wonder how long Joy was anally sodomized?  Outrage because Dennis gasped a couple times during the execution..  I wonder how many times Joy gasped for air as he slit her throat twice? Shall we compare the pain and suffering of each of their deaths?

This quote by the defense attorney says it all......
"All citizens have a right to expect that they will not be treated or punished in a cruel and unusual way"  

YES!!   I couldn't agree with him more.  Joy had every right to expect that she not be "treated or punished in an unusual way."  Dennis took away that right from her and her baby.  Sorry if I don't have any sympathy for a murderer and rapist, but hearing the family was going to sue because he gasped, was just too much.  Her death was brutal as she lay drowning in her own blood after being anally sodomized.  His family should be ashamed of themselves.  Maybe they should revisit the details of the crime and remember which one of them was the victim.  Execution means death....where exactly does it say that it has to be pleasant or painless?  I hope the judge throws this out of court and makes them pay the true victim for putting them through the trauma all over again.

Boston Children's Hospital....Jail Or Hospital?




These cases are becoming far too common.  Hospitals and government getting to high and mighty and deciding what is best for our children.  Unless we start standing up and taking a stand, these cases will continue to rise.  Imagine if this was your child?  Imagine being limited to just a few hours a week to spend with her?  Imagine what this poor girl is going through?  She is sick and scared and locked in a psychiatrist ward in a hospital where nothing is familiar.  I've written about this before because it is so close to my heart.  To read my other post on Justina, it can be found here.


PANDAS - It's not just the cute little bear that lives in China and eats bamboo.  Educate yourself about this rare and debilitating order that doctors fear like the plague.
