Wow, this whole time I thought palestinians were the only ones who used caskets for non-casket activities, like casket surfing.
This week at Coreta Scott King's Funeral, liberals one upped the palestinians and used a casket as a podium for Bush Bashing
This got me wondering, "what other fun things can you do with caskets?" Here's some of my ideas:
Use it as a giant pinewood derby car!
Add an extra pantry to your house!
Put a glass cover on it and show off your beanie baby collection!
Burry it 6 feet under and use it as a bomb shelter!
It'd make a great container for candy at halloween!
If you live in New Orleans you can use it as an ark for the next hurricane!
Apparently, according to Robert Kennedy, hurricane Katrina happened because the US didn't sign the Kyoto treaty.
I wonder what evidence he has as proof for that logic. Did he have a talk with Mother Earth, where she confided in him that she was going to send her daughter, Katrina, to punish the US for not signing the treaty? Yes he did, and here's what was said.
Bobby K: Oh holiest mother I bow down to your southern pole in honor of your ruler-ship over me.
Mama Earth: Your pathetic groveling pleases me. Come my minion, sit with me and talk.
Bobby K. Oh holiest mother, ruler of this earth, I give my life to you. I have tried, in your name, to get the world to acknowledge your supremacy over our species, but there is one country who will not acknowledge your glory.
Mama Earth: What country dares to not acknowledge my rule of this earth?
Bobby K: The country of United States my holiest mother.
Mama Earth: This displeases your mother. I will send my daughter, Katrina, as a warning of my power. The ignorance of not signing their country over to me has will not go unpunished. I will send my daughter to attack the southeastern part of the country, and I will continue sending offspring until they sign Contract Kyoto. As it is written in liberal prophecy, let it begin.
Bobby K: Oh holiest mother, you are all wise and powerful. PAISE MAMA! PRAISE MAMA! PRAISE MAMA!
Mama Earth: Now be gone with you, and warn of my dominance.
Liberals are really unbelievable. It's at the point now where you can't even think or you'll pollute the earth and cause some kinda future catastropy. But I guess that's what they're really striving for, a world of people who don't think, just obey.
A new study is out supported by the german government of all things, that says dandruff is causing climate change and dire effects on agriculture. Millions of tons of dandruff are circling the Earth, blocking out sunlight, causing rain and spreading disease
(note the part about causing rain. 1. That's nice to know that dandruff causes it to rain, I'll have to remember that this summer when it gets really hot and I need to cool down. This just proves how junky liberal science is. Next thing you know a new study will find that fish live longer when hung by their tails from trees. Also, with fish out of the oceans there will be less chance of tsunamis, which also cause global warming
. 2. Did I miss the memo on rain being bad for us? Do I need to purchase rain insurance now? God forbid that it rains and stuff grows, talk about sounding the 7th trumpet.)
Over the last few days we've seen a flurry of articles designed to assuage the guilt of the people who favor starving Terri Schiavo to death. Here's an excerpt from a typical article in Newsday
"In the evolving saga of Terri Schiavo, the prospect of her suffering a slow and painful death from starvation has been a galvanizing force. But medical experts say going without food and water in the last days and weeks of life is as natural as death itself. The body is equipped with its own resources to adjust to death, they say.
"What my patients have told me over the last 25 years is that when they stop eating and drinking, there's nothing unpleasant about it - in fact, it can be quite blissful and euphoric," said Dr. Perry G. Fine, vice president of medical affairs at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in Arlington, Va. "It's a very smooth, graceful and elegant way to go."
Schiavo, who hasn't had any food or water since Friday, has been in a persistent vegetative state for 15 years that makes it impossible for her brain to recognize pain, doctors say.
"Her reflexes with respect to thirst or hunger are as broken as her ability to think thoughts or dream dreams or do anything a normal, healthy brain does," Fine said.
But even if her brain were functioning normally and she were aware of her condition, she would be comfortable, doctors say.
"The word 'starve' is so emotionally loaded," Fine said. "People equate that with the hunger pains they feel or the thirst they feel after a long, hot day of hiking. To jump from that to a person who has an end-stage illness is a gigantic leap."
Aside from the fact that contrary to what the article says, Terri Schiavo does feel pain -- she cries out when a sharp piece of wood is applied to her back
-- don't you find it convenient that all these doctors are coming out of the woodwork to assure us that starvation isn't a painful way to go now that pro-death lobby is working so hard to starve Terri to death?
I mean, who knew we were denying so much bliss and euphoria to starving kids in Africa by sending food to them? Heck, why have we been giving people on death row, lethal injections, when starving them to death would obviously be a much more humane way to kill them?
But on the other hand, there's this story brought to us today by the Times Argus
"A Cabot farmer convicted of starving his cows to death has begun serving a reparative sentence imposed by Washington County prosecutors as part of a plea bargain.
Christian DeNeergaard pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty in January. He received a suspended one-year sentence as well as 30 days of work crew assignment as part of a deal with prosecutors. DeNeergaard, 47, may not own or possess livestock during his year of probation and must also undergo alcohol-abuse counseling.
In October, then-Washington County State's Attorney Tom Kelly said he would seek at least some jail time for animal neglect, which claimed the lives of at least 11 cows.
"We think some jail time is appropriate," said Kelly in an October interview. "The cows suffered tremendously."
Somebody tell that Washington County State's Attorney that those cows enjoyed starving to death! Apparently it's a "very smooth, graceful and elegant way to go."
Isn't it sad that we've gotten to the point in this country that the State will prosecute you for starving cows to death, but will help you starve a woman to death over the protestations of their parents?
"Are you sick and tired of those dry, old, Bible stories that don't seem to relate to life in today's America? Well, RWN is coming to your rescue by rewriting the Bible to reflect modern mores. Enjoy!"
Two women came before wise king Solomon with a baby, each claiming the child as their own. Solomon faced a dilemma: how could he know which woman was the true mother of the infant? Solomon quickly came up with a clever idea that would settle the question once and for all. Solomon spoke to the two women:
Since we don't know which of you is the mother, we're going to take the baby and leave him in his crib without food and water until he dies. What do you think about that?"
The first woman was shocked and horrified at Solomon's suggestion. She begged for the baby's life:
"Please, please, King Solomon, do not do that to my child. Anything but that! I renounce all claim to the baby. Please just let her live!"
Solomon then turned to the second woman and asked what she thought of his proposal. She replied:
"Sounds good to me! She's my baby and I think that's what she'd want. Can we start right now? Oh and could you station some guards around her to make sure that no one brings her water?"
After hearing from both women, wise king Solomon immediately knew what to do:
"Well, since one of you renounced your claim on the baby, then it follows that I must appoint the other of you as the baby's guardian. Furthermore, since the guardian thinks we should let the baby starve, that's what we'll do!"
The first woman, anguished at the turn of events pleaded for the wise men who counseled the king to try to change his mind or step in and try to save her baby. But they explained why that wasn't possible:
"You certainly care more for the baby and we believe you have the best interests of the child at heart, but the king traditionally chooses the guardian of the child and we'd have to break precedent to try to change his mind. It's tragic that a child has to die, but you know, it's better to watch a baby starve to death rather than take a step down the slippery slope by taking more time to find out the truth of the situation."
Soon thereafter, the baby was left in a crib and denied food and water until she perished and they all lived happily ever after -- well, except the real mother and the baby who was of course, dead.
If you don't know your history, you're doomed to repeat it.
They played a movie in Germany with characters who viewers could relate to, and one of the characters ended up in the same situation as Terri Schiavo. The majority of German's agreed with the euthanasia which started the whole mercy killing that was/is going on in Europe. This is all the liberals need to expand their beliefs in this country and take us down the drain.
Liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals.
Note* Interesting that the group that does the majority of Nazism accusations is the group that is following Nazi ideas.
My mom is watching a video about Revelation and Prophecy and the guy speaking is talking about Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Saddam thought of himself as the present day Nebuchadnezer. Saddam had himself photographed not long ago in a war chariot of Nebuchadnezer. In the bible the Jewish prophet Isaah said that babylon would never be rebuilt (Isaah chap 13). Saddam wanted to prove the bible wrong and crown himself the king of the arabs. Every time he tried to rebuild babylon a war broke out. He tried rebuilding it a second time and the second Iraq war broke out. He's not going to get a third chance at it. It's amazing how people try to prove the bible wrong and they continuously fail at it.
So there's another reason we went to war, we had to fulfill prophecy! Even though Bush doesn't think of this as a holy war, it sorta is.Interesting page from free republic about Saddam and Nebuchadnezer
POLICE HARASSING PEOPLE
Recently, California ran an e-mail forum (a question and answer exchange) with the topic being "Community Policing." One of the civilian email participants posed the following question:
"I would like to know how it is possible for police officers to continually harass people and get away with it?"
From the "other side" (the law enforcement side) a cool cop with a sense of humor replied:
"It is not easy. In California we average one cop for every 2000 people. About 60% of those cops are on patrol, where we do most of the harassing. One-fifth of that 60% are on duty at any moment and available for harassing people. So, one cop is responsible for harassing about 10,000 residents. When you toss in the commercial, business, and tourist locations that attract people from other areas, sometimes you have a situation where a single cop is responsible for harassing 20,000 or more people a day. A ten-hour shift runs 36,000 seconds. This gives a cop one-second to harass a person, and three-fourths of a second to eat a donut AND then find a new person to harass. This is not an easy task. Most cops are not up to it day in and day out. It is just too tiring. What we do is utilize some tools to help us narrow down those, which we harass. They are as follows:
PHONE: People will call us up and point out things that cause us to focus on a person for special harassment. "My neighbor is beating his wife" is a code phrase we use. Then we come out and give special harassment. Another popular one on a weeknight is, "The kids next door are having a party."
CARS: We have special cops assigned to harass people who drive. They like to harass the drivers of fast cars, cars blasting music, cars with expired registration stickers and the like. It is lots of fun when you pick them out of traffic for nothing more obvious than running a red light. Sometimes you get to really heap the harassment on when you find they have drugs in the car, are drunk, or have a warrant.
RUNNERS: Some people take off running just at the sight of a police officer. Nothing is quite as satisfying as running after them like a beagle on the scent of a bunny. When you catch them you can harass them for hours.
CODES: When you can think of nothing else to do, there are books that give ideas for reasons to harass folks. They are called "Codes"; Penal, Vehicle, Health and Safety, Business and Professions... They all spell out all sorts of things for which you can really mess with people. After you read the code, you can just drive around for a while until you find someone violating one of these listed offenses and harass them. Just last week I saw a guy smash a car window. Well, the code says that is not allowed. That meant
I got permission to harass this guy. It is a pretty cool system that we have set up, and it works pretty well. I seem to have a never-ending supply of folks to harass. And we get away with it. Why? Because for the good citizens who pay the tab, we keep the streets safe for them. Next time you are in my town, give me a single finger wave. That is a signal that you wish for me to take a little closer look at you, and maybe I'll find a reason to harass YOU. Looking forward to meeting you."
