Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas!

"I heard the bells on Christmas Day; their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the word repeat of peace on earth, good-will to men!”~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I know times are tough what with all the millions of people out of jobs and our president focusing relentlessly on shoving government run healthcare down our throats instead of putting American's back to work, but surely you can scrounge up a few bucks to purchase the new Michelle Obama Action Figure!
Those toned arms! Those awesome sleeveless dresses which prominantly highlight those toned arms! Those nifty black flats! That hip and happening hair! That smile!
What will they think of next?

Knowledge is power

Thinking about getting the H1N1 (Swine) flu shot?

Maybe you should think again.

Below you will find links that will give you information that you will not see in the mainstream media. It's up to us to educate ourselves and that's where the internet is invaluable--you will be able to find all points of view presented, not simply the one that promotes an agenda of persons who might not have your best interests at heart. Refuse to be manipulated by fear because that is what the powers that be are counting on--that you are so afraid of getting this flu that you will subject yourself (and your loved ones) to a vaccine that has not been properly tested.

Vitamin C and vitamin D3 are great immunity boosters. Getting a daily dose of sunshine is also a great natural way to help your body remain healthy in the winter months. Our government likes to focus on the environment and how we must not pollute it, yet they encourage the pollution of our human bodies with mercury among other frighteningly horrible things.

Shouldn't our government's main focus be on the welfare of the people they are working for?

Lose the race card already


Jimmy Carter insists that disagreeing with Obama means we're racists. I just saw a clip of him on TV and he referred to dissenters as "radical." Oooooo---radical racists! Can't get any more hateful than that! Did he take a look at the majority of attendees at the Tea Parties? Most of them are over the age of 50 and looked about as harmful as teddy bears. to Jimmy Carter: Last time I checked, we still live in the USA where we supposedly have free speech. Methinks Jimma Cahtah is projecting HIS (racist) beliefs onto legitimate protesters. How in the world can he explain how he got inside the heads of millions of people to come to this nefarious conclusion? He can't. It's mere speculation and a ploy to derail opposition.

The former failed president needs to go back to picking peaches off trees or something because he's making a colossal fool of himself. We're getting desensitized to the cries of racism because they are being thrown at us from every direction at the drop of a hat. It's losing it's power to shut people up. That's a crying shame for all those who pull it out to silence differing opinions. Whatever will all these race card throwing fanatics do when the race card has been played out?

Jimmy Carter also attacked people who live in the south and I'm sick and tired of that nonsense. I guess he forgot he lives in the south himself, consequently tossing himself into the racist southern hillbilly category. White people who preach to other whites about racism in public arenas make me suspicious that their motives for doing so have nothing to do with the people they are defending and everything to do with elevating themselves to hipster heights while pretending to be color blind.

Here's a little advice, Jimmy: Live and let live. Burn those race cards!

PS: Does Jimmy ever stop to think about how it is ok for HIM to sit in judgement of the entire south all the while demanding that WE shut up and just go along with the fascist agenda of the NWO ? Hypocrite much????

Enough already with the Ted Kennedy Adulation

Let's not forget Mary Jo Kopechne .

When you are filthy rich, you can kill people and others forgive and forget about it. You don't have to spend even one day in jail for leaving the scene of an accident (while driving drunk), leaving your passenger to drown all alone in the dark of the night while you swim to safety and go on living.

History gets rewritten and when YOU die, the brainwashed population produces a different script where YOU become the hero and the masses cannot say enough good things about you. The state run media makes sure your memorial services are covered 24/7 so that the foul truth of your life gets erased then replaced with propaganda.

The truth, however, will never die.

Your real legacy? Murder, and writing bills to take money from people who work hard to care for their families to give that money to those less fortunate while squirreling away your own wealth because it's always more fun giving to the poor when you're not giving away any of your own money.

What a guy!

Just sitting here enjoying a day filled with rain. I love days like this, to get things done inside that otherwise I would put off if the sun were shining. Do you realize how much I love the sun and summer? lol

Those who know me, are aware of the recent big changes. We won't mention them here though because well, um...why would I do that? LOL

The blog I mentioned in the previous post was a scam. What a dumb ass that woman is. It made national headlines. Imagine all the time she wasted from her life to go to such an elaborate scheme. Sad thing is people do it all the time. My thoughts anymore are "they will get theirs in due time".

We're all doing fabulous and that's all I really have to say~

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Over the last couple months I started following a blog because it was one of those that pulled at your heart. Not even sure how I came across this blog. People found themselves hoping and praying things would go the way everyone would want. Favorable. With a miracle. When I say with a miracle, that doesn't mean things would turn out perfect because nothing is perfect in this world but any triumphs in this situation would be a miracle. Things just weren't looking good from an earthly prospective.

The last few days several updates were made and miracles were happening, but those miracles (and if true) would still have a sad ending. It's what was happening in the middle that was the main focus of prayer and the miracle, for hundreds of readers. I opened the blog this morning to see how things were going, sort of like a novel where you can't put it down. The blog is gone. Now, yesterday an entry was made about the author/s being attacked by unfathomable comments/emails and horrible things were being done to pics they posted. Makes one think how sick and cruel people are in this world. Understandably, the author had removed the anonymous comment ability about a week ago. Yesterday, they removed all entries and placed one that said they were simply going to put current updates and that would be the only one visible and no comments were allowed. This morning, the whole thing is "removed". I guess I'm just wondering why not take it private. At least the owner of the blog has a temporary, safe keeping to the chronological events of this special time. Hell, they very well could have been safe keeping the entries elsewhere and just figured the blog wasn't needed with all the hate being put on them. No one will ever know.

With finding the blog gone, there are so many "what if's". I personally don't want to accept that it was a hoax, because for one...who has that much time on their hands to create something that elaborate and two, what would make someone so sick to think up such a story? The other thing is what kind of person would attack another going through what this family was going through? Sick people, that's who. We all know hoaxes happen. It's the internet and well...people think it's a playland where there are no rules or feelings. I can't say elaborate schemes in sucking people in (for whatever twisted reason) as a farce hasn't happened, because it has. I've seen it first hand and have also been the brunt of shitty things regarding my dad's passing. (Who the fuck says shitty things to another when a loved one passes away?) I just think that if you are the creator of a scheme like that, you'll get yours in the end. People who do that, play with fire.

I'll have to tweak my prayers regarding this situation from here out. I don't want to believe it was a hoax~

My day started YESTERDAY at 3:00 a.m.

Mom and I got on the road at 3:45 a.m.

5 hour trip for a 9:00 a.m. appointment.

After some blood work, a port flush and a brief visit with the doctor, we were sent on our merry way.

11:00 a.m. and we're on the road, heading back south.

2 hours into the drive, my cell rings.


Umm...someone needs a blood transfusion.

They were as shocked as we were because she just feels and looks so damn good.

We turn around and drive two hours BACK to the clinic because they want to make sure there was not human error on the bloodwork.

Arrive back at clinic, get blood drawn, wait...wait...wait...and wait

Yep. Hematocrit and hemoglobin W A Y too low.

More waiting while they call the hospital to schedule a short stay transfusion.

After getting tired of waiting at the clinic, we head to our fave restaurant for dinner.

6:00 p.m. I get a call to head to the hospital, bed ready.

7:00 fill out a whole slew of history papers because for some reason, hers were not in the computer.

More waiting on doctor to bring something to the nurse.

More blood draw for cross type yada yada

Wait, wait, wait on blood.

10:00 p.m. still waiting.

umm remember, we have been up since 3:00 A.M.!

Midnight, the blood arrives.

2 units and 6 hours later, transfusion complete.

hellooooo it's 6 a.m. this morning.

Blood pressure too high to leave, more wait, redo.

7:50 a.m this morning, we finally get the go ahead we can leave.


Wait...forgot we have a 5 hour drive home.

It took us 5 1/2 hours to get home due to shitty rush hour traffic, but we got arrive safe and sound at 1:30 p.m. TODAY. With the help of a lot of coffee!

OMG I am way too old to be pulling all nighters.

It would have been great had I been able to catch a few winks at the hospital but being that I had a bedside chair similar to a wooden kitchen chair, that wasn't happening.

At this point, I'm almost delirious and just trying to keep busy until I can get to bed around my normal time so I don't screw up my regular pattern.

One hour to go and man, my bed is screaming my name.

All is well, it was a hilarious adventure really~

Driving to the trail to run this morning I had the radio on and the morning talk show was discussing the Miss America pageant and Miss California. Apparently Perez Hilton is in a hissy fit over her answer regarding gay marriage. Boo hoo Perez, you didn't like her response? It's her response, her opinion.

My opinion is like hers. It is MY BELIEF that marriage is between a man and a woman. Does that mean I have a problem with gay people? Absolutely not. Miss California answered the question with how she felt PERSONALLY on the subject. As if a question like that really has a place in a beauty pageant.

Then he has the nerve to turn around and call her a bitch because he didn't get the response he wanted.

What the hell is wrong with people?

A day to rejoice!

A day to praise!

A day to give thanks!

A day to sing from the rooftops!

A day to dance in the rain!

A day to count my blessings!

A day to cry tears of joy!

It's just a fabulously, glorious day~

America's Cover Girl?

Sitting here watching the news this morning and I have to laugh at some of the things being said and where these news hosts come up with their story subjects. The First Lady is America's Cover Girl? Seriously now, I'm lmao on that one!

I recently met up with a childhood friend of mine at Fishbone's. We spent about two hours catching up which was great. We had been friends from elementary school to our sophmore year of high school when she moved away. Funny thing is she moved just a few towns over but back then, getting to her town was rather "far" so the get togethers became fewer and fewer. we laughed at how things have changed so much and the town she moved to had sort of just melted into a few towns over as the years have gone by. Hell, you used to travel a country road to get to her new town but now it's all city streets and just a hop, skip and a jump. It was great reconnecting with her and find out what she's been doing all these years. We'll definitely keep in touch and get together again.

Things are good on the homefront. Nothing new or exciting going on. The weather is crazy as is in most parts of the east. We went from 65 degree days to 6 inches of snow just 5 days ago and today we are hitting 75. Funny thing is we still have some snow in our yard where the direct sun hasn't melted. What's left will melt today without a doubt. The snow was pretty but damn, not in March.

I hope all those Obama supporters are happy with what a fine job he's doing and how freely he's doling out the moolah. Jesus. Our kids, their kids and their grandkids will be forever busting their asses to pay that back. Our country is crumbling and gone to hell in a handbasket.

Toodles. Enjoy this fabulous weather~

My story for now...

I've been kind of quiet here but that's only because I decided not to burden this blog with anymore of my political rants, and created a separate one just for that. I'm not sure if it's going to be a short-lived passion of mine or not. I just know that it's what I feel like writing about at this time.

I've gotten away from personal blogging because my heart isn't in it anymore. I don't know how many different ways I can write about getting up and living my life without it becoming stale--at least for me. I have a mostly fantastic life filled with fantastic times, interspersed with moments that aren't so fantastic. In other words, I live a life just like everyone else. My experiences are unique to me, but they are not unique in this world.

I've gotten away from reading books lately because of blogging, and as a result, I stopped feeding my brain with new things that challenged me. I've found an idle mind breeds discontent. And so I've gotten back to reading everything I can get my hands on, but more than that, challenging myself to read things and learn more about things I normally told myself I wasn't interested in--like politics. It's opened my eyes and broadened my world in ways I cannot explain.

So that's my story for now. My other blog is here. I'm conservative in a world of conservative haters and "hopenchangers" so if you lean right, I'm your cup of tea, and if not, don't worry, I won't hold it against you.

I hate that my pictures come with the extra space at the top and at the bottom but oh well. In the scheme of life, it's just a little annoyance. lol This is a picture I took while waiting to pull into traffic. The sunset was gorgeous! Glad to feel temps have warmed up into the fifties today. There are some things needing tending to in the yard and I can fiddle around out there without freezing my knuckles off.

Thought I would play a little game here in that I would answer questions about myself, as long as they aren't too personal. lol Maybe whoever is in Kentucky and searched me out will come forward to play along too since I must be intriquing or something. Really, I'm just a person with a family, kids, a couple dogs and cats who lives like mainstream America. Maybe it's a coincidence on the search because I don't know a single soul in Kentucky. Granted if you search JCINNC you will come upon lots of links that don't pertain to me at all. Maybe whoever it was just saw Party of Three and decided to give it a look. Oh, never ask to post a pic of any member of my immediate family or extended family. That would be pushing it unless you are a friend and it's done through email.

So, ask away~

Just Thoughts

Just going through old pics on the computer and figured I'd share a pic of the past. If you were to walk in my house, you will find quilts almost everywhere. They are not for decoration only, they are to be used regardless of where they are sitting throughout the house.

I was able to bring mom back home after me being up there for four days. Her next round of chemo starts next week and with her feeling well enough to travel, hubby and I (along with mom) decided it best she come here and get acclimated to her new "apartment". Since her surgery and a short break in chemo to recover, she's grown a little stubble on her head. I've become so used to her being bald, that even seeing pics pre-cancer with hair, she looks so different. A sign of hair falling out is a tender head and sure enough, that stubble is already coming out. She's comfortable being bald and I think that's great. She's fared this last round of chemo better than expected, we just hope for the same with the forthcoming treatments. Experience has shown me that with each round of chemo, side affects become worse and the person becomes that much weaker. We'll keep our fingers crossed and our prayers ongoing. We are heading back out next week and depending on how she feels, after her nupergen shots (one everyday for 4 days post chemo) we will be back until the next round.

Today has warmed up a tad and tomorrow is to hit the fifties. Yahoo! I'm so over this bitter cold crap. No snow, no reason for it to be so damn cold. Right, B? lol

I watched very little of the Inauguration. I'm just not getting all the hype about him. I want to believe he will make a change, but we'll see.

The tot mom in Florida needs a public hanging even more with the new shocking evidence presented. Who kills their baby, wraps their mouth in duct tape and puts a heart sticker on the tape over the mouth area? Sick, sick girl.

And some more disturbing news that the degenerate that stabbed the girl at Virginia Tech yesterday beheaded her. How can a human being hurt and kill another?

Things here are quiet and that is good~

Kid Quilt

Several years ago, my princess decided to take a gander at quilting. I didn't pursuade her to try but she rather decided on her own that she wanted to make something. She picked out bright, kid friendly colors and we chose an easy pattern called The Yellow Brick Road. Enthusiam came to a halt rather quickly but hey, she's a kid and sewing really isn't something a lot of kids want to do. We put it away with thinking one day she'd want to finish it. A few years passed and I came across it in a bag tucked neatly away in my fabric closet. About 6 months ago, I decided to go ahead and finish it for her and this is the end result. She had her blocks pieced, it just needed the blocks sewn in rows, layered, stippled and the binding put on. I machine quilted it over the last few days and while watching football last night, I hand sewed the binding on. I'm not one for just rolling over the edges on a quilt. I cut, piece and sew binding on. Personally I think quilts look better that way.
Not too shabby for a kid, huh? Maybe as she gets older, she'll decided to carry on the hobby. If not, I'm totally ok with it. ;)

When I write letters to my children, I like them to remain between me and them. Not so for our PEBO. When he pens a letter to his children, he gets it published in Parade Magazine so that we can all take a look-see at what a swell guy he is. Of course Parade asked him "to get personal" because he is such a devoted father, blah, blah, blah...Obama considers his election "a great adventure that he's taking them all on." OMG. Understatement of the year, for sure! His letter to his children reads more like a love letter to himself with very little focus ON THE CHILDREN. I can smell a phoney a mile away and this guy is a BIG TIME NARCISSITIC PHONEY.

One really good thing about Obama and those who mindlessly follow him is that they don't seem to mind if you don't pay your taxes. Scratch that. They care if you are Joe the plumber, down on your luck and you can't pay your taxes, or if you're just a regular working class person trying to get by, however if you're wealthy and Obama wants you for his SECRETARY OF FINANCE, then if you "forget" to pay your taxes for four years in a row, it's just a minor "Hiccup!"

Oh, and Geithner didn't realize that overnight camps for the kids AREN'T allowable expenses when calculating dependent child care! Give me a break. CROOK!

Hope and change we can believe in!

DC's homeless getting the boot for inargural

Muslim Violence in New York

It's happening all over the US, but it's not being reported in the MSM. The MSM are calling them "protest rallies" rather than violent hate-fests. If you're not concerned, you should be. Here's a portion of the article over at Atlas Shrugs:

"After walking home from the 42 Street & 7th Avenue Pro-Israel rally, I watched the Muslim rally participants march up 8th Avenue closely controlled by many NYC police to keep them moving along. Even so, it appeared that many of the young men and women were eyeing the bystanders on the sidewalk in threatening ways almost challenging someone to disagree with their Death to Israel and God Bless Hitler chants.

I went back to my apartment where I met my boyfriend who had also just returned from the second Pro Israel rally on 39th Street & 7th Avenue. We walked outside the building and across a major midtown avenue on the West Side to buy some groceries. He was still carrying the Israeli flag and we were both wearing baseball caps with the American flag and USA on the brims. A large number of Muslims were milling around since it seems that their rally had reached its end point and was dispersing. Six Muslim men were being photographed with posters with the words, "Praise Hamas and Hezbollah, Reopen the Ovens" and were taking photos of themselves and their posters. Seeing us with the Israel flag, they began screaming, "You're assholes, Kill the Jews, We are going to kill you, This is OUR country," etc.

We went into the corner deli and they began banging on the window and stood outside in a very threatening mob waiting for us to leave. I heard one man say, "She is a female" - very observant. I don't know what this was suppose to signal to his fellow terrorists. When we left the deli a mob of the original Muslims and others who joined them came up to us screaming death to the Jews, and one man around 19/20 years old ran up and with force and hatred threw an egg into my friend's eye. This may not seem like much but I am sure the intent was for the egg shells to be lodged in his eye. The egg was not thrown from afar against his coat but was thrown like a rock would be - to inflict as much harm as possible. The assailant then grabbed our Israeli flag, threw it to the ground, and was spitting on it and wiping his feet on it. When we asked a traffic cop to make an arrest, the assailant ran away down the block but the traffic agent did not answer us nor did he call 911. He passively stood by doing NOTHING.

Two people standing on the street took photos of our attack and said they would email us with the photos to identity the criminals. We then walked back across the street to our building and were followed by a pack of Muslims - about 8 or 10 - who continued to threaten, mock and scream at us. They seemed surprised at our ferocious counter verbal attack. However, they came right within 6 inches of us saying they would kill us. One of the men was about to attack me when my boyfriend saw the assault about to begin and said, "If you touch her, I swear I'll kill you." At that point the original traffic control cop came over and a second traffic agent joined him and forced the crowd to disperse. They asked us to go into the apartment building lobby which we did.

We immediately called the police and asked to make a police report. Two NYC policemen came to the apartment about an hour later hour and took the information. They were very courteous and said they will file the report and a detective is to contact us tomorrow. They apologized for taking so long to come by but explained that there were many incidents of a similar nature that were taking place as the Muslim rally broke up. They also shared that 2 NYC police officers had been attacked at the rally and that the Muslims are 'out of control.'

Without the photos, it will be near impossible to find the Muslims involved. Even with the photos, I am not sure if the police can find the assailant or make an arrest. I am told by an attorney friend, that just the act of following and threatening is a crime in and of itself. Whatever it takes, we'll take it as far as possible to prosecute.
Any ideas as how to pursue this would be welcome. This attack could happen to anyone. This attack happened in midtown Manhattan, a major American city on a Sunday afternoon. Our country is under attack from within. We need to do much more than attend rallies."

My Hobby

The art of quilting came to me by chance or maybe just by getting my mother off my back to "just try it."

Try it I did after a couple years of her pursuading me to at least attempt it. Frankly, I didn't have time. I agreed to make what she sent me just to get her off my back. The kids were keeping me busy enough as it was, how would I find the time to sit down and sew a million little pieces together? Hell, I didn't even own a sewing machine. Didn't want one! She upgraded her Bernina and thus, I inherited her not so old other Bernina. I took a day that was less chaotic and set out to create a lap quilt. Not far into it, as I was seeing something beautiful come together right before my eyes that I was making, I got hooked. Thanks Ma!

Over the years I have accumulated a walk- in closet lined with shelves that hold enough fabric to have a mini store. More fabric than I could use in my lifetime but it gives me so much to choose from when I come upon a pattern I want to make.

I do get commissioned to make quilts for others but it is not a steady business for me. Mostly because I haven't pushed my desire to make it full time work quite yet. That time is coming and that's what I'm most excited about.

Someone once asked me how many quilts I make in a year. You know, that really varies and I can't say I set out with a set number in my head that I want to accomplish. Each quilt takes more time than the other and I'm personally more about quality, not quantity. Depending upon the size of the quilt and the design, some go out to be professionally quilted. Some I do myself here on my machine. It depends on my time. Not to say there aren't smaller projects thrown into the mix of wall hangings, table runners, etc. that I do in between quilts. There is always the need for me to be working on something and that hasn't really been happening for me for the last 6 months.

Unfortunately, I have four quilt tops hanging in my studio that have been put on hold for now. I never like to have projects unfinished, it kills me. lol My plan is to take a couple with me to finish while I am away from my home.

My time here is coming to a close and I will be heading out soon. Mom's chemo started again and it's already hit her like a ton of bricks. You never know how a round will affect a person and I had her cycles pretty much figured out. Two days after chemo and getting sick has not been the norm for her. Chemo is a vicious bastard.

Quilting~ Try it, you might just love it~

Wow, another post. Maybe this is just making up for the months that dear K took the brunt of carrying this on for us all. You're the best!

Decisions were made recently for my mother to move in with my family but unfortunately we are stuck in limbo for at least another few months. The transition will happen and treatments will continue but for right now, a stipulation was put on her by a physician and what it boils down to is money. Won't go into details about that but will just say it's they don't want to lose the money they stand to make. I'll give this physician a few more months but then I have to put on all halts and make the transition without any roadblocks stopping me because quite frankly, things will be better when she is permanently here with us. I can't go months, years doing what I'm doing. Not physically and not mentally. My best interest lies with my mother and I know in my heart what's best. It's just a matter of getting it done.

With that being said, what my husband and I did this weekend was move her belongings to our house. It couldn't have been done any other time without killing me in the process. We've moved our children's rooms around leaving the roomiest space for my mother. Creating an in-law suite basically. She has her living room set up and her bedroom set up. She's good to go when she comes. Boxes still need to be gone through and stored. That is what I'm tending to today.

It's become an emotional task. Holding all the pictures that were displayed throughout my parents home. Pictures of dad that when I was at mom's house and walked by them, I would run my finger over him. Telling him how much I love and miss him. I'd ask him to watch over mom and help us keep her safe. I know he's here with us in spirit. Guiding us and helping her get through this mean beast that she's been dealt with. The worst was going through a bin of their jewelry chests. Coming upon dad's wedding ring that was cut off his finger. I'm assuming on his second to last trip to the hospital. Placed in a tiny zip lock bag by most presumably, a hospital employee. Tears flowed as I took the ring out of the bag. Wishing... possibly that if I rubbed it, life would go back to normal. Back before any of this ever happened. Life is never normal though. Is there really such a thing? Not for me, not for anyone. We deal with issues dealt us and muster through them with the best ability and move on. Not to say it's always the best outcome but no one ever said life was fair.

Back to the task at hand I go~


I wish the media hounds would leave the Travolta family alone to let them mourn the loss of their son. Why do they always have to try and find wrongdoing when something like this happens? They obviously wanted privacy even way back when their son was born and tried to keep things normal for the family and out of the limelight of Hollywood.

Go focus on the dysfunction that runs rampant in Hollywood. Not that us normal folk really even care.

We're five days into the new year already. Damn, where is the time going?

I've been able to stay at home for a few weeks now, but heading back to enjoying life here at home is about to come to a halt. Haven't picked what day I am heading back out, but I'm taking one day at a time hoping the possibility of staying here the rest of the week will happen.

Being here has been wonderful. Of course it hasn't come without a little turmoil and resistence and people thinking I'm the village idiot. I think perhaps it's the other way around because my plan was best despite meaning we had to give up our weekend, not to mention still haven't finished trying to figure out where everything is going to go. Their part in what took place was so minor I couldn't understand what all the complaining was about. A major change but for the best and hopefully within a few months time our origininal plan from over a year ago will truly happen.

New Year's resolutions are something I never make. It's comical how so many people hit the gym or start out with an at home exercise plan yet it fails for them every year because they aren't motivated enough to stick with it. My new year will continue on as it has in the past in regards to my health. I will continue to run daily as it's become even more of a mental release for me.

So anyway, just a rambling post and to wish everyone the best in 2009~

Hollywood brilliance

More Hollywood brilliance.

It seems that Hollywood has its hands in everything. Every time I turn on the news I am met with some Hollywood know-nothing-who-thinks-he-knows-everything telling me how I should vote, what I should support, how I should feel. These directionless fools think we CARE what they think. Anything to get their faces plastered on a tv screen or in newsprint somewhere. It would be funny if it wasn't so shameless and dangerous.

Here's a newsflash for Hollywood types who think their audiences are comprised of followers waiting in the wings for direction from them: Stick to your talents of singing or acting and leave the THINKING/DOING to those of us who have working brain cells and can do more than "perform." Thank you!
