CNN...God Warriors?

Every night before I tuck myself into bed or read a few e-mails or surf the web, I always watch CNN News. Not sure about everyone else, but I think it's awesome to have CNN! I am a huge News Junkie. Anyways.....

How lucky do I feel that I live in America? I feel damn lucky. Tonight's show was over Iran. You know that evil country on the other side of Iraq. I just don't understand how their country is still allowed to treat women like DOGS. Doesn't make sense to me. Here in America we are able to have women as Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, and even have a woman Senator run for President. However in Iran the men do not look at women. Nor do they show any affection towards women in public. The women have to wear their"Hijab". Hijab is is the Arabic term for "cover". They have to wear this out into public at all times. I am sure you have seen them around here in the USA. Which I don't think they should wear them here. They have freedom here, why do they do it? I just don't get it. Do you?

One segment of the show they did say that some women in Iran were trying to take them off. The women in Iran are getting stronger and stronger each and everyday to stand up for what they think is right. They showed one lady getting arrested. The lady was kicking and screaming.
Again, I just don't get it!
And you know what? Another thing that gets under my skin is that you have these people that are from Iran, Iraq etc., that come to America and they complain about how America is wrong, or should do this or do that, but yet they are forgetting they are in our COUNTRY....If they don't like how we run things then LEAVE.
My point for this blog is just remember that we all need to be PROUD to BE AMERICANS! Be thankful that we are able to choose where to work, what to wear, and go from point A to point B without having to answer to anyone.
Remember to Vote in 2008!

Until then...Peace OUT!

President Bush..Just don't get it!!!

Okay, so I was reading my http://www.democraticunderground.com/ blog and I came across a good POINT!!!

Before I start I would just like to say that my heart felt thoughts and prayers go out to the families that were part of the Minnesota Interstate 35W bridge that collapsed on Wednesday. And to think OUR WONDERFUL PRESIDENT could have saved the bridge!


Bush Administration Killed Increased Highway Repairs In 2004

When a bipartisan majority in Congress suggested increasing the federal excise tax on gasoline back in 2004 for the first time since 1993 to pay for road and bridge projects, the White House threatened to veto the measure because it contained a tax increase. At the time, the White House said they would not support any increase in federal gas taxes to pay for road improvements, and then said that highway needs must be met solely through the existing, woeful level of funding in the highway fund and not the general fund, a position that by all accounts within Congress and among transportation experts shortchanged our true needs to the tune of several hundred billion dollars.
But the White House says "let's not politicize this", like they did to cover up their negligence after Katrina.


My views on the above article:

How in the world is this man still able to sit in the highest chair in America? When Bill Clinton shacked up with Monica Lewinsky the Republicans were trying to impeach him for his wrong doings. Yes, I think its wrong for a married man to have an affair, but however it was none of our business as to went on between President Clinton and the famous Monica Lewinsky! Okay, maybe he shouldn't have lied, but was it hurting our COUNTRY? For example: tax payers money, bridge repairs etc...??? NO, it was not!

I could go on and on, but however I am not going to wast my breath on a President that is going down as THE WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICA!!!


This is just my honest opinion!

Until then...Peace OUT!
