Look what we missed when the press was focused on Elmer Fudd Cheney.

I was bumping around al jezeera earlier today (one line at a time, the free translating is a pain but this slow task is worth the trouble as the English version is somewhat sanitized, shall we say?) - Do you realize that the good video is on the Arabic website? It's true. Just like sister networks CNN, MSNBC and others that come to mind, Al Jezeera, has video highlights. Granted, these may be incomprehensible if one doesn't understand Arabic, however, when a somewhat (God help us) prominent American is on Arabic television looking angry, you can bet there is more about what exactly was being said, somewhere.

This very newsworthy story made the pages of at least two Arabic papers - They did not miss a beat; not one word about Dick Cheney's hunting accident could be found in two prominent Arabic newspapers, but Al Gore made the front page. Think about that for a moment. In our country, a former vice-president who takes a side trip and slams the U.S. over and over again for alleged abuses to Arabic's living here, (he also invented the internet), is not quite as important as the current V.P.'s goof-up in a quail shoot.

Putting things into perspective for a moment, the hunting accident was funny in a way, however, the media has taken it to extreme's - what should have been a huge cartoon on every editorial page in the country, landed front page press. What would these progressive communists posing as liberal democrats do if they took the time to research just how many hunting accidents happen each year - to include guns, bows, arrows even fish hooks! This revelation might call for an entire new diagnosis by some mental health guru for the depression they would suffer and the legislation they would propose.

I believe what is most shocking is a that a former vice president who sounds a lot like Fidel castro (code pink's favorite poster boy), is allowed to run about making statements that sit on the edge of insanity and border on treason.

Since no mention will be made in the front pages of any times in the country (maybe there will be an exception, but it's hard to track 2000 plus newspapers - then perhaps more hunting accident's could occur. What about a group hunt?

I realize I’m going to sound a bit right of center today, maybe even somewhat fascists, however, we know john kerry likes to pretend he can hunt, let's throw a party and put him, palosi, gore, carter, kennedy (oh wait, the republican party needs him right where he is) - say in vermont - with any weapon and see what happens. My left of center union organizing, card carrying democratic party faithful should be turning at a rapid rate in his grave over this. He was above all a patriot and despised communism and fascism in any form. His party is no more.

This latest outburst just really takes the cake. Links below

The Reality of a Good Relationship

I thank God every day that He sent me (or let me stumble upon) my husband. Every relationship has its good years and bad (the bad feeling like decades), but when you know that you have something worth fighting for you stay put - you dig in with your teeth like a pit bull (and complain heartily to your friends in the meantime). Separation, be it work or war or both, can be devastating to a marriage, however, with trust, faith and most importantly, a healthy sense of humor two can survive anything...

The Email

I’ll bet that you probably didn’t watch the Kentucky Derby, but during the after race interviews, there was a defining moment for the society that we live in. I was appalled when the network interviewed the owner of the winning horse and he first thanked Billy Joel and plugged his latest album and then said (of his wife standing next to him), “and married to this beautiful thing “,talking about all the wonderful things in his life. She was looking up at this “fat cat” excitedly and apparently no one understood that great head could get you into the winner’s circle at the Kentucky derby wearing a great hat. Perhaps I’m too sensitive, but it just sounded bad. It was an off-the-cuff remark and seemed to delineate just what’s wrong with the values in this world. If I ever have a great success and refer to you as that “beautiful thing “, you have my permission to shoot my ass with the very gun that I gave you! Even though I think that you are beautiful, that’s not the way to refer to your partner in life. Call me old fashioned, but respect is the cornerstone of a worthwhile relationship. Remember! , you’re one of my heroes and are deserving of not only my undying love but a great respect as well!
Love you

The email:

I had all kinds of problems sending my Valentines, but I think that you’ll just get extra copies. Hopefully they all arrived safely. Oh, and since yesterday, I’m not allowed to read your blog on the government computer because you have apparently exceeded the allowable number of questionable words! How’s that for censorship.
It’s been raining off and on all day and can’t seem to make up its mind. I’d like to get a haircut today, but I think that laundry is more critical at this point. With this six- day work schedule, I use a lot more black socks and white T-shirts. I’ve also got two uniforms in the commercial laundry to pick up. All this domesticity is depressing; I really just want to take a nap!
