MICHELLE OBAMA INTERVIEWED ON CNN TONIGHT ...EXCLUSIVE...

Really wonderful interview with Michelle Obama by Suzanne Malveaux. Caroline Kennedy also sits in for part of the Interview as well. Michelle's brother is also interviewed. Excellent Interview. She handles the questions with grace and warmth...all class. She will be a wonderful First Lady.

( as a side note I have to encourage you that if you live in NC or Indiana please go see her- she is an amazing speaker. I have Linked to the Title Youtube Video of Michelle and Barack speaking to a group in Indianapolis, thank you Jack for sending it...)

UPDATE ON THE CHILDREN IN STATE CUSTODY FROM THE YFZ COMPOUND....4.30.08


463 total Children under 18 now in State Custody. 196 Girls under 13, and 197 boys, but only a handful of teenage boys ( there are questions as to the Missing Boys, the "Lost Boys").53 Girls between 13 and 17 ( or 18 depending on the source), 31 of these 53 girls have been pregnant or are pregnant, or have born a child.One young girl delivered a healthy baby boy this week. 41 Children have histories of Fractures ( more definitive information must be investigated, including X Rays).Then today there is concerning evidence that the young boys have possibly been sexually molested. For the first time I am hoping since it is Sweeps that the MSM does indeed keep this story above the fold.

The Children have had their DNA tested, only a small amount of adults from the Compound have been tested, or consented to be tested. I am still calling it the YFZ Compound, I am calling it a Compound, because to call it a "ranch" is a lie. A "Ranch" implies a nice Western Home, and that is not what is coming to Light.

At this point none of this situation is shocking....It is good that the children are being held in state custody while this is investigated further.

THE IDIOT KING WON'T SAY THE WORD "RECESSION", MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST TEACH HIM THE DEPRESSION WORD INSTEAD....


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
We as a Nation Face HUGE Problems right now....a War without end costing 2 Billion a week...50 Million without Healthcare....27 Million Living in Poverty.....18 Million Empty Foreclosed Homes.....Millions without Jobs or Prospects or relief....300,000 VETS with Mental Health Issues ( PTSD and brain trauma).....6000 VETS returned from Iraq have committed Suicide....We have Huge Problems facing us as a Country....How do we remind the Government and the Media of THAT ?

TUESDAY RUMINATIONS....DANCING WITH THE TRUTH AND THE DAMAGE...


My son and I have been having alot of talks about the Obama Campaign and the Reverand Wright Controversy, because it is in the Media 24/7,(and because 6-6 is worried that it will hurt Obama's Campaign).It is the conversation that will not end.And in a shocking turn or events, now Rev Wright has decided that he is on his own mission to keep his name forward in everyone's minds. I think Something Really Awful has happened and it is because a Man, a Preacher was attacked by the Media.I do not know this Preacher, I do not understand him, but I do think that the media was Hellbent on painting him as a Angry Black Man.....and I do think there are repercussions....sadly even for Obama.But now the past two days Events Wright himself painted himself , and made a spectacle of himself and disrespected Senator Obama.

I originally actually felt sorry for the Rev Wright....that maybe he had even reduced to soundbites that mis-painted him. So I heard that he was going to be on Bill Moyers, and I watched him and thought he handled himself well, explained himself as a person. I also think that Bill Moyers is a genius, and could interview a Lamppost and give dignity to the interview.But then after the Moyers Interview Wright has been seen everywhere, the NAACP Event in Detroit ( and aired over and over on CNN), and also the National Press Club. I am concerned, WHY would a Minister go on such a Publicity Barnstorm ? It seems selfserving and egotistical. I am also confused, I can understand the Moyers Interview as attempt to salvage his reputation and image, but these other events were cynical,angry and mocking.And the timing of it is a Nightmare, falling right into the Ratings Sweeps, so that the media would feast on it like a slaughtered fresh lamb. Why Reverand Wright would do Something Like this to Senator Obama is beyond me.....and I told my son that.

I am a white woman,not that that it really matters or should matter, but I say it, because maybe I have not known or Experienced all of the American experience.And I have tried to figure out if that is why Rev Wright confounds me,that perhaps as a minister I did not understand him.... I have been spiritually conflicted in my life, and that means I have gone to all kinds of churches and services and religous havens.As a child I went to a Presbyterian church with my parents, and to Quaker Meetings with my grandmother. ( It also means I have gone to Buddhist temples, and Native American Services). It means as a teen and in college I even went to a Black Church for a spell.....and again since living in Downtown Cleveland I have gone to two different Black Churches. I will say that Services at the Black Churches were and are different than the services I went to as a child, they are more Expressive, more vocal, there is laughter, joy, weeping,and more dialogue.

But that said, that cultural difference does not mean that it should be a worry, a distraction or another line of division in this country. And it should not be a way to malign Barack Obama as Good Man running for President.It should not be used to define the man, or question his Faith and his quest for the White House and to Lead our Country.What kind of Country or people are we that we would allow this to happen ?

For monthes Senator Obama has been trying to dispell many lies about his Faith and his religion, including the email and phone calls that occur in primary states that he is Muslim....He has tried to focus on The Issues, and problems we face. He has tried to keep the Media focused on the problems of the People. He went to a church for many years, and now he is seeing side of this Minister that is shocking and worrisome....But it is so unfair to Senator Obama to caste him in a dark light due to this Minister's Behavior.

Senator Obama gave a press conference today about this turn of events.... And he will have to continue to speak out and explain his position to this dreadful situation....Please do watch his press conference and his remarks, he has every right to be concerned about this Continuing Controversy.

Governor Easley and the Pansy Comment at Hillary's Endorsement Announcement


Today Governor Easley endorsed Hillary at a press conference, it barely got mention on the National News....so I watched a snippet of it on CNN, and I was struck by the comment....it was A Good Old Southern Man being all folksy....and he made this odd comment saying that" Hillary makes Rocky Balboa look like a pansy". Am I the only one that heard that and thought WHAT???? Now she has an endorsement that openly compares her to a Fighter BUT has slur in it against gays ? And she stood and clapped and smiled....

I HAVE A QUESTION : IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING TROUBLE READING THE COMMENT MODERATION LETTERS?


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
I have been having a really hard time reading the Comment Verification Words, and I have been failing reading them properly and so over the past week...I have been having a hard time getting it right so that I have even had to give up on some of my comments....the letters recently seem more blurred, squiggly, and mishapened....

Is anyone else having this trouble ?? Or do I just need my vision checked ?

HIllary 's New Demographic....Nuns with Guns over 60 making rush to the Polls


Obama is ahead in Delegates,he has momentum in the Superdelegates ( only 22 behind her now),he is ahead in the Money (with more money from small donors),More States, More RED States, More New Voters, More Diverse Voters, More Independents, More Young Voters, and More Voters all ages, More Voters Under 60, More Male Voters....the Media can spin her Dirty Pa. Win 20 ways from the Truth, but we all know she played dirty to maintain a Win in a State that she had Claimed was a Cakewalk....and Obama gave her a run for her money there. ( Speaking of which , HOW broke is she ???...) I am sick of HER ( and Bill too)...it is embarrassing....The Rovian Playbook used within Our Own Party to Damage Our Own Party...All because Hillary is unable to do Math.

I had the Hall&Oats Song "Rich Girl " stuck in my head....I blame Hillary for that.....so I linked it to the Title.

So I took a Break from the Hillary Wrecking Ball Mission, Scorned Earth Campaign this weekend...I took care of a sick cat....cleaned my frig....made oatmeal cookies...hennaed my hair and painted my toenails purple....and listened to alot of music from the 70's and 80's.....and I made some calls for Obama....We gotta help him WIN Indiana....that is all there is to it.

Sunday Night Soulfood: Lilacs , Green Tea and Walt Whitman...


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
It is Sunday Afternoon....I finished sweeping, cleaning the frig,taking the trash out. and brushing the critters. I am making Green Tea Sun Tea and Homemade Pizza for dinner.....and I trimmed my Ancient Lilac Tree ( bush) by the porch....and then I took a break to watch the Indians play the Yankees ( don't ask).....And then I took a break and listened to this great music that Will"take no prisoners" hart reccommended , songs that are sung by another Redhead, Neko Case, she sounds Canadian or from the Northwest....anyways click the title and enjoy......the Song is "Hold On, Hold On".

( by the way I stayed up way too late reading Walt Whitman last night, I was looking for a poem about trees, but I became very distracted....very....holy cow ...Have you ever read him? I mean Really read him ??? he really was a very sexy writer....how did I miss That....? I never did find the Tree poem....oh well....)

Hope you had a Good Sunday.....

HAPPY ARBOR DAY....


Last Friday of the April...Plant a Tree this weekend....I am holding off for a week, we are supposed to have cold temps and snow Monday and Tuesday ....So that gives me more time to decide what I want....I am torn...It has to be Something that will go nicely with my Lilacs...a Rhodi to satisfy my Northwest heart...or something Exotic...like a Lemon tree ...or a Peach Tree.....Camille....I want my porch to smell Heavenly this summer....like Gardenias, Lemons, Lilacs,Jasmine.....and maybe some yellow roses...Now if I could get inspired to go find my shovel....

MCAIN SAYS THAT WE ARE BETTER OFF, HOW DO YOU DEFINE "BETTER"


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
On the New DEM Ad, McCain falsely says "that over the past 8 years , WE ALL are better off", "more prosperous". So I guess it all depends on HOW we define "Better" and "Prosperous"....and what the Hell is used to Measure HOW Well Things are Going ? So is he old and delusional ? What the Hell has he been Drinking ? What say you this Friday Night?

MCAIN WENT TO NOLA THIS WEEK PRETENDING TO HAVE COMPASSION.....


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
McShame continued on his Compassion Tour? Or His Attempt to revive his Memory Tour...
McShame went to NOLA this week, and he said that he would have (cough) handled NOLA and Katrina "differently". Now here is what disturbs me....in 2005 WHEN it happened...WHAT DID HE DO??? He was in Arizona , Hosting a Party Entertaining the Flyover King....I even remember Blogging it at the time....as He and the King ATE Cake...While People Drowned...

( More People died AFTER Katrina waiting to be rescued...then died from the actual storm....)

WORLD MALARIA DAY.....4.25.08


Malaria is a disease that is ravaging Africa....and other parts of the world. 2 Million a year die, a child dies every 30 seconds. 75% of those diagnosed with the disease are children. The MSF ( Doctors Without Borders ) treats 1.7 million a year for this disease. Africa faces a huge crisis as it battles this disease, AIDS, and Malnutrition. Add in Civil and Political Unrest, Political Corruption creating a disruption of Medical Care and Distribution ( as well as Food), and the added burden of a Staggering Refugee Crisis and you begin to see how Catastrophic the Crisis truly is.If we as a People can start to see this Tapestry of Crisis for what it is....that No Piece is smaller or less weighted than others...Maybe the People will see relief in our Lifetime. Maybe.

Malaria is Treatable, Detectable and Preventable.

There are many fine organizations that are working to educate and distribute NETS to families. The Nets are treated with Insecticide. This is One Step in Preventing the Disease and preventing more deaths and disease. NothingButNets.net is one organization that is bringing Nets to thousands of families , these nets prevent the disease and protect children and families.

Doctors Without Borders ( MSF) is working hard to care and treat the afflicted, 1.7 Million last year alone. If you would rather support their medical care and treatment I encourage you to go to their site and support their work. Their work requires the use of ACTS, this is a drug regime that utilizes a combined therapy, based on using a Chinese plant, sweet wormwood, called artemisinim that is reccommended by WHO ( World Health Organization), and is the most effective treatment against this disease. This treatment costs more than chloroquine treatments, but is much more effective.

Another Aspect of this Crisis that I am asking you to look at is the Refugee Issue and Malnutrition. For many of these families they are displaced and starving, so inadequate medical care is just a piece of their plight. So I am also encouraging you that you can always give to organizations that deal with the Refugee Crisis and Nutrition issues. International Red Cross, Unicef, and World Vision all do amazing work with this issues and serve millions in need.

I believe that the Health of the Planet is indeed tied to the Health of All Peoples...that we are all Neighbors on this Earth. Global Neighbors.

"Hurry,Hurry has no Blessing" . A Sawahili Blessing meaning the time to act is Now....

**{{ Please also do read the New Post up over at Lydia Cornell's...she has a beautiful post up about many of these issues as well....that we all are connected.}}**

And last by least....this weekend do Play "FREE RICE". IF we all give Something back....we can Create Change.

THE MORNING AFTER.....


Barack Obama has clearly shown that he is More Presidential, he has won More States, More Votes, More NEW Voters,More Delegates,More Money, More Endorsements....He has continued to wage a Campaign of the People , by the People, For The People. He has run a Campaign that is Respectful of the People and all that we have suffered and endured the past 8 years.Two weeks ago he was perdicted to lose to Hillary by 20-23%, and he did lose by approximately 10. He has fought long and hard for us, and attempted to keep the focus on the race on us, and The Issues.He is concerned for our Unity as a Nation, and that Healing is needed so we can begin to problem solve all the issues we face.

Hillary may have manuevered a "Win" in Pennsylvania, but her campaign has descended to a Show, a Spectacle.She has shown that Nothing is Beneath her now, Lies, Distortions and Distractions, Defaming Attacks.Obama clearly will continue to have a Two Pronged Battle Battle for the next 6 weeks.He will need our help to continue the Momentum that was started in Pennsylvania, and the gains he has made.We the Voters will have to educate People on Hillary, her Lies, her Desire to Bomb Iran, her Questionable " Experience", and her stability, and lack of character. I am not saying that we should stoop to her level, but we should stand up for Obama, and also make sure people really have looked at her, blog, write to media etc. Obama needs our Voices to help him....the Media seems hellbent to not portray him in the Light of Truth.

Hillary reminds me of the Queen in Alice In Wonderland....Her wrath and narrow vision mean we need to work harder to bring Reason to this Situation...It is up to us to keep Growing this Movement.

We are the Power of this Movement, Our Future is in Our Hands.

HELLTHCARE IN AMERICA: AND WHY OBAMA'S PLAN IS BETTER THAN HILLARY'S


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
HEALTHCARE FOR ALL SHOULD BE A RIGHT GUARANTEED IN THE CONSTITUTION... As an RN of 20 years,if it was up to me...and I think Florence Nightingale would agree...and in all my years of Nursing it is the thing that breaks my heart as much as when Reagon pretended that we did not have an AIDS crisis,pretended millions were not sick or at risk. This is just another such Crisis. But after Katrina I think we all know that MUCH of our Infrastructure is Broken, Healthcare is One More Broken Piece.
( We can just add it to the List it actually fits with Financial Hardship of Lost Homes and Bankruptcy, Crumbled VET care,and even homelessness).

50 Million Americans WITHOUT Healthcare, that is a HUGE Number. It would be like if a Whole Country had NO CARE, like the size of Canada. This means that there are 50 Million not just without Insurance, but without Healthcare. AT ALL. It means when they are sick for the most part they don't go to the Doctor, they ride it out or pray it goes away or they use Over The Counter Remedies. It also means that many of these people may well have diseases, conditions and illnesses that are not getting any kind of Care or Treatment. It also means that there are millions not even getting basic care or monitoring or any preventative care. NONE.

It means that Sometimes that people do end up in the ER, but it is the place of LAST resort. It is the not the First or Best Option, it is quite simply the ONLY Option. Many of those that are ending up in the ER, it is not that they are poor, or lazy or "irresponsible" ( as Hillary has said in her Road Tour Speechs). People , especially the Middle Class and the Working Poor have No Where else to go. Many Clinics Require Payment or Credit or Insurance. Many People can not get Insurance either it is VERY Expensive or MANY, and that Means Millions ARE DENIED COVERAGE FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS OR HEALTH HISTORY OR EVEN FAMILY HISTORY.

WHO CAN AND IS DENIED INSURANCE AND HEALTHCARE, OR HAVING IT CANCELLED AFTER PURCHASING IT ?
Many People with the Following disorders and Diseases:
Asthma,Autism, ADD&ADHD, Depression,PTSD, Diabetes, Obesity,Cancer Survivors,Thyroid Disorders,Cardiac Disease.

And this includes Family History. There are other States that are Denying or Cancelling Care based on Credit Scores.The other phenomena that is occurring is that People apply , they pay their first three monthes coverage, and THEN they get a letter that they are cancelled due to one of the Conditions mentioned above or due to Discovery of One of the Above.

People are literally DYING from Lack of Care, NO ONE is actually tracking the hard number, but the estimates are staggering. One study placed it at 10,000 / month. Another issue that has not gotten any focus , is that many of the VETS that have returned , if they are in the Guard, they are ONLY given care or coverage for TWO years- that is it. That is WHY there are so many Homeless Uninsured Vets with PTSD on the Streets. That is why we should be very concerned that over 300,000 are estimated to have Mental Health Issues, Brain Trauma, and PTSD. That is Hundreds of Thousands Vulnerable and how many thousands without care....and their Families struggling to get them care, daily.

Another Issue that gets NO media Mention is that People are Overcharged, and Under Care for that do have insurance. They pay their premiums and copays Hundreds of Dollars a month, but the insurance still ONLY pays what they want to pay and that means that people are getting only so much care paid for ( they are being Walmarted by their OWN insurance...discounted...but not getting ALL the care they need or having ALL of it reimbursed). This means that they pay What they can , their insurance being up to 10% or more of their income, Thousands per years, and they then must find more money. Many people during this crisis the last 10 years declared bankruptcy or refinanced Homes BECAUSE OF HEALTHCARE CRISISES CREATED BY THE INSURANCE LIMITING WHAT IT WOULD PAY FOR CARE. WE ARE THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT HAS THIS CRISIS.

PEOPLE ARE LOSING HEALTH, HEALTH CARE AND THEIR HOMES ALL AT THE SAME TIME. AND THE GOVERNMENT AND THE INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE COMPLICIT. HILLARY'S PLAN WOULD AND DOES NOTHING TO LIMIT OR STOP THIS PROBLEM. SHE THINKS THAT IT IS ACCEPTABLE THAT WE PAY UP TO 10% OF OUR INCOME, AND THAT WOULD NOT CHANGE. SHE ALSO HAS SAID NOTHING ABOUT PEOPLE BEING UNDERCARED FOR OR OVERCHARGED OR THE PREEXSITING CONDITIONS AND DENIAL.
It is unfortunate that one of the Big Lies she told about the poor woman in Ohio was about such a HUGE issue that needs focus. Instead of being dramatic and making up the story she should have just talked to the crowd and asked for their stories , there are thousands of horror stories.

Most people if you ask them WHAT is their Biggest Expense per month after mortgage/rent, and many with insurance will tell you that Food and Healthcare Costs are tied at this point. Many will also tell you that there are many times they do not eat as well because they have meds to buy. It is like a Horror Story that you hear of a Slavic Country back in the 1970's. How many of us have seen old women buying cat food, knowing damn well they don't have a cat. I have.We are the only Country in the World that the MEDs cost MORE than Food.People should never have to choose.

Hillary wants Mandatory Insurance, like Cars Being Insured. It is NOT that simple , and she never mentions ANY kind of Regulating or Control of the Greedy Insurance Companies. She wants to cut deals with them. THIS is the Same Wall and Hellfire that caused the Failure the first time back in the Nineties, she turned it into a Competitive Bidding Bloodfest and we all lost (and she did it behind closed doors with limited participation, and it turned to chaos).

Obama's Plan is stronger,and he has promised to have Public Accountability and to have Hearing on cspan to watch the Process. He also has told of his mother's story and watching her die from Ovarian Cancer, and Fight the Cancer WHILE fighting Insurance Companies....For Obama this Issue is REAL and personal. He KNOWS what Millions are going through every day.His Plan is For Universal Healthcare FOR ALL. Even people that have been Cancelled and Denied. He also would Regulate the Companies and make sure those Horrible Practices ceased. ( Hill's would not). He also has said that ALL Fees and Rates would be reviewed because we are paying too much. ( Hill has said in speechs - and I have watched many- that Rates would be capped- but if they are too high already- that does NO ONE any good- it is too late). Obama has made no promises to Pharmacy or Insurance Companies. Obama's Plan addresses Problems on all levels, and admits that we all are Paying too much for too little, he talks that it needs an overhaul. I would rather have someone that recognizes HOW broken it is be honest and willing to fix all of it. "Caps" is not enough. Please do look at Obama 's Plan in his website, and read it ( it is very similiar to John Edwards plan).

*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
My personal Epilogue. I am an RN Without Health Insurance. I work really hard at attempting to be healthy and take of myself. I don't smoke, and I am not obese.I don't drink alcohol. I don't eat alot of salt, fat and sugar. I buy organic when I can. But after searching high and low, and being turned down by 14 companies. ( Because if you work partime and perdiem you have to buy an individual policy). I found a company, and within 4 monthe and after paying thousands of dollars, I was cancelled due to a Cardiac History and History of Cancer in my family. This is wrong...I am being denied care for two things totally beyond my control. And I will probally die younger because I am not being monitored for the two Risks that I do have.

So this year, I had to go to the ER, for the first time in many years, because I had a bad fall and smashed my illiac crest and hip.Within hours it was a bruise larger than a football, and the pain was like childbirth. I was treated terrible at the ER , like I was Invisible. I would think it was because I had No Insurance, but all the people around me also were treated as poorly, so I ended up taking care of 3 patients near me, hobbling about.It took many hours to get any care, and the care I got was less than adequate, and yet I know that it will be a bill for thousands. I dread it daily.And the Hip still has not healed, but there is nothing I can do.Nothing.

I am a nurse, I should not have such a story.....and there are Millions like me. 50 Million.

DC DOESN'T NEED AN ELECTION IT NEEDS AN ENEMA AND A CRASH CART....


I am not sure WHO needs an Enema More Washington or the Political Media , but they both do need one....STAT.
( And if they don't Someone needs to keep the Crash Cart by the Door...)

10 Million Tuned in to the ABC Debate on Wednesday NOT to hear Two Out Of Touch Elite Media Pundit Pinheads Peddle Right Wing Propaganda....BUT THEY HAD HOPED BITTERLY TO HEAR THE REAL ISSUES SPOKEN WITH CLARITY AND CONCERN. Instead we were served Rusted Metallic American Flag Pins made in China , and they had the Dishonest Nerve to call it " Patriotism".
We tuned in to see Who was Presidential....that was What was on Our Minds, Future President Talking About the Real Issues....Not Flag pins.

Millions of People have shown up at rallies, and Voting Boothes, NOT Because they are Happy and Patriotic. BUT because they are Bitterly tired of Corportocracy of America that has Effected Their Lives. Edwards said there are TWO Americas, The "HAVES" and the "HAVE NOTS", but there is a Third Group that Needs to BE acknowledged, and that is the DC ELITE and the MEDIA ELITE who at some point morphed into this Insatiable Powermongering Beast, that is not only Deaf and Blind, but Out of Touch ... but is NOW Out Of Time to Get the Big Picture...

The BIG Bitter Picture is THIS:
People are Bitter, and they are in Pain and they have suffered Enough. What is Enough?
Eight Years of Hell and 5 Years of An Illegal War that has driven OUR Country into the Ground....Literally Lives, Blood, Tears, and Sweat Shed by the minute HERE and Iraq....IRAQ HAS KILLED OUR MIDDLE CLASS, OUR WORKING CLASS, OUR ECONOMY AND OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURES....

Millions of People Without Jobs ( Thank You Nafta and THE Clintons)....

50 Million WITHOUT Healthcare.....( that is MORE People than ALL of Canada)...

Thousands Dying Each Month due to Lack of CARE....and MEDS....

Millions of Homes Lost, and Thousands of Homeless Even VETS....

300,000 Of VETS with PTSD and or Traumatic Brain Injury ( Thank You Iraq)....and their families living on Food Stamps....
4000 + dead Americans in Iraq, 35,000 Wounded and 6000 Suicides at Home Upon Return, and more than a Million Dead Iraq's.....It is TIME to deploy...

Millions of People Whose Retirement Accounts have been Wiped Out.....And Savings Too.

Teetering Economy that is Desperately Looking Depressionish.....

Yet the President is Giving BILLIONS AWAY EVERY month to the Iraq War....

People making Choices between Fuel and Food.....Everyday...

30 Million Living in Poverty.....20 Million Hungry Children....

And a Shredded Constitution....and a Delusional President who Wants MORE war with Iran...

Meanwhile On TV this week with 20 Hours a day of Pope-liness and CNN has the nerve to hold a "Compassion " Forum....we have an Empathy Deficit, and are Hemmorhaging Our Humanity....

And I am supposed to be worrying about Godamned Flag Pins ?

At This Point WE ALL have been Katrinaed....

The Song tonight linked to the Title is "ONE" by U2 and MJ Blige....
There is a line " Is it getting any better ? Do you feel any better ? Will it make easier now you have Someone to Blame".
I think that this song is about Change....about how we have to view each other as Brothers and Sisters...and view it as Something that we share....We Claim...We Cling to...We Own.

CLICK THE TITLE: "NO MORE" BY EDDIE VEDDER FOR "BODY OF WAR"



This Incredible Documentary " BODY OF WAR " made my Phil Donahue about the Life of a Very Heroic VET, and WHY he is against the Iraq War is worth Anyone's Time....it is Beautiful...Many Clips On YouTube. Mockingbird ( of Mocking Bird's Medley ) really got me thinking he brought up the Question " Do we have any good Protest Music Right Now." So here is what I came up with, but I think we need MORE....( Because we all Know that the Music was the Messege in the Sixties). Okay so 6-6 helped me make this list ( that is why I have a teenager in the house)....Do You all Have More ?? I bet you do.....

{1} Eddie Vedder's Song ABove "NO MORE" ( actually the WHOLE sound track is Great )
(2) PINK " Dear Mr.President"
(3) Dixie Chicks "Not Ready to Make Nice"
{4} Dave Matthews " American Baby "
{5} John Mellencamp " Our Country"
{6} Sarah McLachlan " World On Fire"
(7) Green Day " American Idiot"

WHERE IS YOUR DAMNED FLAGPIN HILLARY? TOM EDSELLS' NEW POST AT HUFFPOST EXPOSES THAT YOU ARE USING THE ROVE HANDBOOK TO SANDBAG OBAMA


I for one want to KNOW HOW ABC KNEW to ask ONE person about the PIN Question..NOW that we know this poor Mrs. McCabe woman has had a very hard life ? HOW did ABC Happen to ask her to be on the show and submit a question? ABC never asked for any of us to submit questions- so how did that happen? They just happnend to hear from her- or did someone GIVE her name to them....So Hillary I have seen your Tiara, but I want to see your PIN.....Or Maybe it Fell Off when you dodged that Fictitious Sniper Fire.....jus sayin'.

(( Add: Huffpost has new article up this am by Thom Edsell and it turns out Hill People have been Calling People and giving they the Rove' Playbook On How they are going to Go After Obama with the Ayres Crap....Now here is the thing WHY do her People have this? and WHY are they Sandbagging Him with it now- that ONLY helps her. Anyone also want to Bet that it was forwarded to Georgie and Charlie to help them "Prepare" the Debate ?Even though it is trumped up and absurd...as he was 8 years old...Please do read it...and call your Superdelegates and let them know that ALL we have is Our Vote.WE Don't have Rove's Playbook. And I don't mean to be rude- but her Baggage Is MUCH Worse....Vince Foster to Monica to Rwanda Silence to Nafta etc etc.)

FIRST FLAGPIN PROTEST SERVED TO ABC IN BURBANK TODAY 4PM:GO TO CROOKS&LIARS FOR DETAILS

Today there is a Protest Planned at the ABC Burbank Studios Honoring the Craptastic Debate and Party Favors are being awarded, FLAGPINS will be given to ABC Employees. There is Nothing Worse than "Patriotism" Shown with Crappy Metallic Pins made in China.

I have 2 Thoughts:
(1) Where is Hillary's Damned Flagpin ??( Which Begs the Question How Come the Media has Never asked her or Bill this Assanine Question)

(2) Is it me, but whenever I watch CSPAN it is always the Repug DC Fella's Sporting the Shiny Metallic Patriotism on the Lapels?

Meanwhile the Angst inflicted by this So Called "Debate", has been heated and swift, the ABC Website is still bombarded by Thousands Complaints of the Anemic or Absence of Journalistic Integrity....And Writers ( real ones) from around the Country have weighed in on the Outcry. I still have all the ABC Exec NY Phone Numbers and Addresses. ( If anyone wants to email me the LA ones I would be ever so happy to post as well). WE THE PEOPLE deserve better. Enough is Enough.

ABC, CNN are now Fighting for this as their NEW Motto:
"When Fascism Comes to America it will be Wrapped in a Flag Carrying a Cross ?" Sinclair Lewis

( Oh come on , remember the CNN Crap-Passion Forum was only on Sunday.....what a week...choreographed around the Coming of the Pope....meanwhile the Real Deal The Seeds of Compassion Conferance in Seattle got NO coverage...even though the Dalai Llama was there...a Great Peaceful Spiritual Leader.....I digress.....TBIF.....)

WHAT SAY YOU, SHOULD RACHEL MADDOW AND JACK CAFFERTY HAVE THEIR OWN SHOWS ?



Over the Past Few Monthes there are certain Journalists that really do speak the Truth and Ask the Hard Questions. These Two People are Amazing... And should we Petition MSNBC and CNN....( to be honest I think MSNBC "responds" a little More than CNN...)

What do you think Should Rachel and / or Jack Have Their OWN Shows ?

HONORING THE VICTIMS OF THE VIRGINIA TECH SHOOTING RAMPAGE LAST YEAR


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
32 Seconds of Silence to Honor the 32 Lives Silenced on a Spring Morning One Year Ago......

Last Year on this date, on a hazy Virginia Morning, 32 people lost their lives by 10am they were all gone...and others were wounded and scarred for life. The WaPo has a lovely tribute on their site that tells a little about each of the Victims, and WHO they were as people. They all were interesting, and wonderful people at the peak of their lives. It is sad that a young man in such trouble, not getting the care or support he truly needed resorted to this Violent Inexplicable Ending. We never got the whole story....and maybe we never will. In the Comments and here later tonight I will post more about Gun Safety Actions that planned and being pursued today and around the County and in DC. Or you may call the Brady Compaign at 1-202-898-0792 to learn more. 100,000 People are wounded or killed per year in incidents with FireArms.

There are Lie-Ins and Memoriams planned today around the Country, atleast 32 Planned in more than 70 Communities. To Learn more you can go to the Site : ProtestEasyGuns.com, or go to the Brady Campaign to learn more about today and What you can do, as well as Legislation that needs our Support, especially to better protect students and young people around the country. It is time to urge Congress to repair dangerous loopholes in the laws that allows dangerous felons and convicted Domestic Abuse perpetrators to easily obtain weapons.

Here in Ohio, as a Consequence of this horrendous rampage last year there are people attempting to pursue Concealed Weapon Permits for college campuses, for the Students. There are many here that are concerned that this will only feed a bigger problem.( It has been pointed out that Cho could have even gotten such a permit legally.) Yet funding for the care and support he needed has been cut from programs around the country.

The Video that is attached to this Post was chosen by my teenage son, 6-6. It is called "Tear Drop" by Massive Attack. It is very moving, listen to it, it is a beautiful song. We had an amazing conversation last night about the Killings and Gun Laws. We talked about how Many that say they wish to "Protect Life" are the same ones that support the NRA. 6-6 said " they support the Lives UNTIL they get here, and then they don't". He also pointed out as a young person that this week was interesting , he got to see a Presidential Candidate drink and talk about Letting Children "Go Shooting " with the Family. He pointed out that he didn't know what she meant, and it came off wrong, that kids should be allowed to shoot ANYTHING ? He also asked why there were Not age Limits for Children and guns, after all there are age limits for learning to drive and drinking , and in the wrong hands Both can cause Harm. He said sadly it seems that the 2nd Amendment does not really protect children, only Guns and Gun Companies. Shootings and gun victims are reported on the news here almost nightly, he said he should not be "used" to seeing that, it is as "familiar as the weather..and they are always young".

{{ Background , the First and ONLY time my son ever saw a gun, was by accident, he was eight, a Landlord had left it in the Kitchen Drawer of a Rental. I am blessed with an amazing son and he came to me, and did not touch or Play with the gun....He came and said, I think there is Something Very Wrong here, there is a gun in the Kitchen, a Real Gun. The Landlord, a single mom with a young son, I thought it MUST be a toy. My Son was right, it was indeed a Handgun. Loaded. I removed it from the House and returned it to the Landlord with a Messege of my Concerns. But since then 6-6 and I always have discussions about Guns.....with great honesty}}.

We talked about Cho too..."He needed someone to talk to. Anyone. Maybe his parents, they should not have left him alone on the College Campus alone during vacations.He needed help, it is weird that his roomates tried....I don't know but it seems like his family just kind of dumped him there... He needed more than roomates could have given.I am not blaming the family, maybe they didn't know how to get him help." If you have a young person in your life, give them your Time, your Listening Time, your Support....a Hug.


He said the Media today will spend all day on the Pope, and the Victims and their families will be lucky to get 32 Seconds of Notice......

32 Seconds of Silence....for Tears in Heaven. Namaste.

"When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a Flag Carrying a Cross". Upton Sinclair

I feel positively ill....and disgusted. Cokie Roberts from ABC was personally invited to share the Wondrous Moment with George, Laura and Jenna. The King told Cokie during the Limo ride that The Pope is a Internationally Spiritually Loved Leader ( well I wonder what he thinks the Dalai Lama is ? ). President Bush is throwing a Big Dinner at the White House, and yet the Pope will not be attending The Dinner. I find it very very interesting that The Pope does not wish to Break Bread with Bush.Tomorrow Morning the Pope will meet with Bush, I hope that he sets the President Straight and Explain Human Rights Issues to him.

I saw on the News last night that the Pope is awarded all kinds of Protections and Security, millions of dollars worth.....I guess sadly that only certain Spiritual Leaders are "valued".

I find it ironic that The Pope is visiting While the Pedophile Crisis in Texas is going on......

POOR ENTITLED HILLARY'S BITTER DINNER DEBACLE IN PENNSYLVANIA.....Shortest Speech EVER


So Poor Hillary, had a Bad Time last night. ( Please pass the tissue, I feel a little tiny tear coming on.) She arrived to the Jefferson Jackson Founders Day Dinner in Philidelphia County, and had the Press get there 2 hours early. She was told beforehand by the Democratic Team that she might have to cut her Remarks Short.....

Apparently the Crowds Were less than welcoming, and continued Eating, Drinking, CLinking glassware, and Visiting the Bar and other tables. She could not speak above the Noise and Chatter. ( I am shocked that she could not Yell like she always does. ) She did indeed cut her speech short, to a Mere 5 Bitter Minutes....ahhhhh what a Pity.

I am Shocked that Fellow Dems could have been Sooooo impolite. I do wonder were they trying to Send a Messege ?

*{ Click the Title : A Horrible Hill Video, I have been looking for the Dinner speech, if anyone finds it- please send it to me.}

SINCE HILLARY HAS GONE ROVE, THE VIDEO LINKED TO THE TITLE IS DEDICATED TO HER SCORCHED EARTH INSANITY.....


So today Hillary is Comparing Obama to Bush ( boy that is Soooo Rich.) I found this Video, and since she has taken this RovIan Campaign to a New LOW.....this Video is dedicated to her.....( I have been polite....for a long time...but my patience is shot to hell). I am a Woman and you could NOT pay to Vote for her....HELL Would indeed Freeze over....

DEAR HILLARY, WHY ARE WE NOT ALLOWED TO BE BITTER, FIRST YOU STOLE OUR HOPE, NOW WE CAN'T BE BITTER?

originally post 4.12.08

*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
Read Ghandi's sobering words on Bitterness, and What it means,
"I have learned through Bitter Experience, the one supreme lesson, to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so Our Anger can be transmitted into a Power that Can Move the World. " Ghandi.

"Forgiving does not erase the Bitter Past. A healed memory is not a Deleted Memory.Instead Forgiving What we can not forget creates a New Way to Remember.We Change the Memory of Our past Into a Hope of Our Future". Lewis B.Smedes.

So Now Hillary wants to take away OUR Feelings, even if they are True, that we as Middle America, the Downtrodden do Feel Bitter and yes, we do hold the Past and Present Administrations Responsible. Why shouldn't we ? We are not millionaires, we did not Profit from the NAFTA debacles, we did Not Hire a Union Busters to break Our Spirits , we are merely Working Class Americans attempting to make a living and raise our Children, and while we were all working hard OUR Government Sold us down the River. Yet we are not to have Knowledge of that Inconvenient Truth ? We are to NOT speak of it to an Entitled Woman that is running on the Legacy of her husband and His Name ? Does she take all of us for Mere Fools to soak up her Delusional Lies ( Bosnia Sniper Fire and Ireland Peace Talks non withstanding, and her Campaign Manager meeting with Columbian Officials).

So this week Obama mentioned in a Fundraiser Speech that People in Middle America ( Pennsylvania and Ohio etc.) MIGHT be" Bitter" after having survived the Past Dynasties of Bush and Clinton and Bush of the past 20 years. That people might have suffered a Loss of Quality Life, Quality Dreams and Quality Hope, and that maybe, just maybe Have Found themselves Bitter.I know I have found myself Bitter....as have my friends and neighbors, it is merely a Simple Truth. I say that with Pride, Not Shame. Does it make Us Un-Patriotic to be Bitter ? Is it another false membership Test like the Flag Pin ?

But here is the Forgotten Lesson, People that are Bitter, Fight Harder for a Better Future, and Understand the Hardship of The Truth Self Evident, and are not spoon fed Lies Anymore.We have Suffered, but even an Entitled Millionaire in a Prada Pansuit can not take away Our Wisdom, Our Hard Earned American Perspective.
**************************
Click the Title "Which Side are you On" An old Union Song from 1931.....sung by Natalie Merchant, because Hillary has been in DC too long, she has no idea WHOSE side she is on....but not mine. She has not cried tears of a single mom struggling to pay bills at 3am, or at the grocery store putting back meat, to buy Milk. Shame on her.

BREAKING NEWS:::FUNDING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SECT.....NBC REPORTED TONIGHT

*{YFZ Temple during Construction, please note 3rd floor is where "Marriage Beds" were found, Note Window Size/Shape}*

Many of us have watched the Yearning for Zion Compound story unfold and some obvious questons start to poke our Minds. HOW do they fund their lifestyle ? The Huge Houses ? The Huge Temple ? the Multitude of Huge SUVS ( Suburbans), as well as Trucks and Large Equipment....WHAT pays for all of this? ( It does appear that they are frugal , and use child labor for much of their needs).

Tonight on the NBC Evening News Lisa Myers opened up the beginning of an Investigation into WHERE the money came from, and the answer is not pretty, it is more than Concerning....Federal Funds are involved. There are contracts with the Federal Government, and the Defense Dept ( Pentagon). The Original Contract was negogiated with Leaders of the Sect,who work with Warren Jeffs, John C.Wayman, and Wendell Neilson. The original Contract was with Utah Tool and Die, and then Western Percision.Now the Company that has the Contract is New Era Manafacturing based in Nevada. They were paying the Sect over 100,000/month. The Contract was for Airplane Parts ( wheels, wheelwells, and brakes) as well as Other Equipment. These contracts were also funded by GE and Wells Fargo to Western Percision. There was another contract that I am still researching in regards to Nevada that there was a Water Treatment Contract that is worth over 11 Million. The 2 individuals named were also very involved with Warren Jeffs and his Hiding from the Authorities during the FBI Manhunt.

My Concerns And Questions About the Contracts:::
(1) NBC stated that New Era has not been able to make a Statement about the situation. They said that they were told that Religion does not enter into the Question of Assigning Contracts by the Pentagon.But the Bigger Question is do they award Contracts to Felons, Pedophiles ? Doesn't Homeland Security investigate/vet These Contracts ?
(2) These Contracts that are mentioned , WHO did the Actual Work, was there any Child Labor Used ?
(3) IMPORTANT :::: NOW I have a very strange Question, Isn't it true that the Planes that were grounded last Week were ALL American made, and were about the Wheel Wells Level of Safety ? Perhaps this is just a Coincidence, but considering the number of Planes Grounded and the Vague Information about this Safety Check, it is very odd.
(4) The Sects Documents in the Temple included Documents about Cyanide, should Nevada Authorities be concerned about their Water Contracts...and Safety ? Nevada already had one Health Catastrohe this year with Contaminated Needled infecting Thousands....we would hope they would Investigate this issue rapidly.( more will be posted tomorrow).

CHILDREN SEPERATED FROM MOTHERS DURING TEXAS INVESTIGATION: EVOLVING STORY, MORE POSTED IN AM


TWO BREAKING NEWS ISSUES AT MN::::
(1) I will update Blog in AM there are two major developements that have occurred in the past 12 hours, The Children have begun to be moved to the San Angelo Stadium , and the reports that came out during Nightline and CNN Anderson Cooper, The Children have been moved, and that children over 5 are now seperated from their mothers. ( I don't know if the Mothers even have access to Legal Aid, or attorneys, and many have never had to deal with secular Attorneys, it is unclear HOW this is being handled). The Children ( 416) also are being appointed Attorneys. I am trying to read up on the Issue and Find out WHAT is going on. ( I don't understand WHY the State would seperate the Children from the Mothers, the mothers were not named in the original Abuse Charges). I am confused as to WHY the Children could not stay with their mothers, unless there are Obstruction issues that we the public are not aware of. As a Nurse I am concerned about these young children,who have poorly developed idenities, even though they are Programmed and Brainwashed, It seems like the Mothers staying with the children might decrease the Trauma of this situation.

It is concerning that the Caller "sarah" has never been found or located....and perhaps related to this current decision.

(2)The State Authorities TDFPS has updates on their website- but it does not explain WHAT is currently going on.

Issue Number 2:
Many have been asking WHERE does their Money ,it has been rumored that Jeffs is/was worth up to 400 Million Dollars. As someone watching we all have wondered where the Money came from for the Huge Houses and the Suburbans and Trucks, and Heavy Equipment ? Tonight on the Evening News it was revealed that the Sect and Church Leaders does receive MONEY from the Federal Government, Pentagon Contracts, atleast 1.5 Million Dollars and another Contract that is worth over 11 million dollars that is with another State. I am still investigating this. BUT that OUR tax Monies and Federal Money might have been funding this abuse is very concerning, even while Jeffs was Placed in the FBI Top Ten list for Crime Against Children...And perhaps explains Why Federal Government has been Quiet. Children, especially young girls are being transferred across State Lines For Sexual Purposes and Abuses, and yet there have been NO Federal Charges ? It is very concerning that Jeff 's Sect Leaders were still negogiating Contracts worth such large amounts.

*******************
CNN Update::: Gary Tuchman reporting from Arizona tonight- there are large meetings today and tonight. He also did explain that the Authorities are also part of the Sect ( the local police are not helpful).

I am just a nurse, a mom, I try really hard to blog on What Matters, about Health, Children, Human Rights, and yes , even Politics and Anti Iraq posts....the Past few weeks I have been Blogging Human Rights Stories- YFZ Compound ( the Texas Compound, which I mentioned pedophile and abuse concerns ), Tibet and Rights of the People there, and yeah, sometimes some not so nice posts about Hillary. I am now being Filtered By Google, Wordpress, Blogger, and Some Favorite Blogs ( I must have pissed off somebody of Blogatopia Royalty ?)....this makes me sad...I live in Middle America, I am bitter, I should be allowed to dialogue with Other Bloggers....at my favorite sites.....I have tried to let Skippy and C&L know that I am being filtered- but they are big Blogs, have thousands of readers....so I don't think they will miss me much....But some of the smaller blogs might miss me- so I just wanted to say I am sorry, but I have tried to leave messeges- but they are not getting through...only sporadically....

I will try posting as Anonymous...that might work...

DEAR CNN, WHILE YOU WERE BUSY PLANNING YOUR SO CALLED "COMPASSION " FORUM, YOU COMPLETLY IGNORED THE COMPASSION CONFERENCE BEING HELD IN SEATTLE ....


"Compassion is Not an Emotional Response , but Firm Committment founded on Reason"

Dear CNN While Cloaking oneself in "Compassion" and then holding a "Forum" on it , is definently teetering on some Journalistic VERY Shakey Ground. I am also concerned that Only Christian Leaders were allowed or participating in the Questions. I did not see any questions raised by Other Spiritual Leaders there asking Relevant Questions. So sadly this leaves those watching KNOWING that Other Religions don't Count in Any Equation. I found the Questions were Mostly oriented in Evangelical Right Wing Christian Political Agendas: Celibacy and Celibacy/Abstinance teachings related to AIDS prevention, Creationsim Vs. Evolution/ Teaching Science....etc etc. ( and a Chance to Quiz Obama on Muslim issues, and Rev Wright, and about his own mothers death- which seemed totally rude).

I am sorry, but if you want to hold a Christian Conference ,so you can test the Candidates ability to be Religous enough, don't pretend that you are holding a Conference on Compassion.....and Next time INVITE all Spritual Leaders, Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh,Hindu,etc.

By the Way while you were airing your Charade, there was an International Conference on Compassion in Seattle, called the Seeds of Compassion held in Seattle this weekend and this week. The Honored Guest was the Dali Lama. I noticed just like Tibet , that you did not cover this Esteemed Exiled Leader, in either his arrival or his messege. You also have been having difficulty covering Human Rights Abuses in Tibet.

CNN My Question is When are you Merging with FOX ? or did it already happen?

Weekend Reading......


I started reading this book this weekend, it is wrenching, infuriating, disturbing. The Cult in Texas , is by No Means a Normal Religion or Lifestyle Issue. It is matter of Children and Women being treated in a manner that is beyond Comprehension. I encourage people to watch this young woman when she speaks on Interviews. This Case will be in the news this week, as the Hearing on April 17th will determine the fate of the women and Children from the YFZ Compound. 416 Children and 139 women ( mothers). In the Four posts below I thoroughly raised Health and Welfare issues of these Children, as well as Human Rights Issues, please know there is also information in the Comment Threads as well as there are Interesting interviews and Documentary pieces Linked to All the Titles.

"KEEPING SWEET" AT THE YFZ COMPOUND: INVESTIGATING THE CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN AT THE YFZ COMPOUND IN TEXAS, VICTIMS OF RITUAL PEDOPHILIA AND INCEST

{originally posted 4.09.8, Please also read the Posts Below about Rituals and the Missing Girl}

11PM UPDATE: CULT IS NIGHTLINE TONIGHT, ALONG WITH INFO ABOUT THE TEMPLE BEDS AND THE ESCAPEES.
BREAKING NEWS 3:30 PM FRIDAY4.11.08 ( PRESS CONFERENCE PLANNED FOR 4PM):
MSNBC 3:30 PM announced that Cyanide Poisoning Documents were found amoung Papers removed from the Temple. Press Conference is planned to announce what was found in Compund and Temple.More will posted here , I will liveblog the Press Conference in the Comments of this Post. Press Conference was cut short by MSNBC.

BREAKING NEWS VERY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT 4.10.08 :::
Texas Friday AM Papers are reporting that Cadaver Dogs were taken to the Compound late Wed. ( This was after Beds and Shredded Documents were found at The Temple. ) The Missing Girl Sara has still not been identified or found. As a 16 yr old 8 monthes pregnant she should have been found in the 416 by now. From the Research assembled in the Posts below and do read the threads and the LINKED Titles, and due to the High Temp Furnace on Site, I hope the Authorities with The Dogs, do Check the Following Sites at the Compound:
(1) the Quarry
(2) The Cement Plant ( Take Ash Samples)
(3) Any New Cement Projects
(4) "The Potato Shed"
**************************************
As A Nurse that has Studied Community Health Forensics on a Large Scale, I have some Questions regarding the Investigation of the YFZ Compound. These Questions are Not Comfortable, and may seem Morbid but Someone Needs to ask them. ( I studied the Health of an entire Region in the Northwest of over 150,000 people ). These Questions are based on the Latest Updates of the past three days, read the four posts below, as well as Comment Threads and also check the Title Links. As a Nurse, I need to encourage that this Investigation is about Crimes against Children, this is not about Lifestyle or Relgion or Polygamous Relationships being judged. It is a Human Rights Issue. It is about Children in Danger.

(1) Pregnancy Infant and Obstetrical Care of the Women:
What are the Pregnancy Rates, especially amoung the teens, and WHO is providing their prenatal Care. What are the rates of PostPartum Infection, Complications, Death. What are the rates of Complications for the Infants: ICN /neonatal Complications, and yes Mortality. With Such High Rates of Inbreeding and Incest, this increases risks of Disabilities and Defects. Also are there STD records for these young teen mothers, or even risk records and pregnency records. Who provides care to the young mothers, are there Midwives on site ? If the young mothers collect Medicaid and get State Benifits there should be records of all of this. Health Records on the 416 and the 139 Mothers.

BUT THEY ALSO NEED RAPE KITS:
All the Minors that have been sexually violated should be treated as Rape Victims, that means Rape Exams need to be done to check for damage, trauma and infections and unknown pregnancy. This is a Compound Where Sexual Crimes were part of Daily Rituals.There were beds found on site at The Temple that were used for Rituals with Young Girls being raped, forced into Sex with Males over 17. ( DNA could possibly be obtained from the beds).

(2) There is an Incinerator (2700 Degree Furnace) on Site, see post below, these records must be checked, and the Incinerator dust must be Tested. ( Electric Company must have records and permits). Ash also could be used for the Cement Plant that is onsite as well. WHY is there an Incinerator connected to the Temple. Do the Members bury Family Members on site ( there should be records). It is assumed that they would not wish to be buried in a public cemetary, with Heathens. Who issues Death Certificates ? Is there a County Coronor or Medical Examiner that issues ?

(3) Records of Illnesses, Accidents and Disease. If they do practice Eugenics there should be meticulous records on all of this, especially the Birth Records. ( Jeffs was obcessed with Bloodlines- and "Pure Bloods", but there should still be records of Illnesses.) There is a KNOWN Inbreeding Disorder called Fumarase Deficiency that has already been identified in atleast 20 children in this Religion ( Mostly in the Arizona babies- it is a RARE disease only found due to Genetic Inbreeding, it causes Severe Defects and Damage at Birth, including Severe Mental Retardation, Hypotonia,seizures. It is in the Jeffs Bloodline, Sect.There should be records of their medical care and condition, and also they do have shortened lives, there should be records. According to the Escapee Blogs- Defective babies are smothered at Birth- if this is True- there must be a way to find out more about the demise of these afflicted infants.).

* Due to Abuse Concerns- there should also be XRays taken to track longterm abuse and damage on longbones and ribs.

(4) In the Aerial Photographes I have looked at - 5 years worth, there are no photos with children playing outside, especially Little Boys. There are photos showing the girls helping their mothers in the fields. But No Boys are seen at all. Susposedly the boys do help in the Quarry. Are there accident Reports. Has any Child Labor Specialists or labor Investigators ever gone to the site ?

(5) Elderly Care Records, and again Death Records and Certificates.

(6) Records and Permits for the Premises: the Quarry, the Cement Plant, all buildings, and roads and the Water and Sewage
(7) On Aerials there are Large Containers on site- are there records for the Semi's and the Containers ? What are they shipping?
There should be trucking records.
(8) Susposedly they raise "Mohair" at this Ranch, and tend Sheep, yet NONE of the Aerials Show a single sheep. There should be records of the "Sheep" and also for the Dairy with the Department of Agriculture.
(9) As Barlow has been named as the Attacker and Abuser of "Sara" the Missing Girl, HOW is he allowed to still live near children and on a Compound with Children. ?
(10) There should be records by Health Officials regarding Corporal Punishment and "Christian Disipline" , there are records showing a rise in Texas, from a division of the Human Rights Watch that monitors in Corporal Punishment. ( Local ER's should or might have Accident Reports and Injury Records- espeicially if they are of suspicion).
(11) And Last but not least- aren't the Marriage Records Public Record? and shouldn't they have age on them ( just like Birth Ceritficates ? ) Texas Government might also be complicit with this Cult, but the Records need to be studied by an Outside Independent Source.

These are just some of the Records and Reports that need further study. Let's Hope that they Authorities are Ascertaining much of this information, as the Children and women will not be willing to speak, but maybe the Records will give Helpful Information, that could best show WHAT is going on in regards to the Health, and Abuse of the Children.

It is Important that Texas do a thorough job investigating and protecting these Children, and it might indeed lead to the other Branchs and Sects being Investigated for Crimes Against Children.
*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*

Three Documentaries that are worth Seeing, so we can self educate about this Pedophile Cult all on Youtube:
(1) "Banking on Heaven" ( about the Actual YFZ Compund- very compelling and disturbing.
(2) "Lifting the Veil"
(3) "Many Wives:Vows of Silence"
On another post I have linked the Aerial Footage of the Compound.
*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
Please do read the Three Other Posts Below, and do Check Links to the Titles.
I will update in the Comments Thread during the day.....Please do see Linked Videos about the Cult, the Aerials, and the Post below about the Missing Girl , and the Practices of Blood Atonement.

WAS BLOOD ATONEMENT USED AT THE YFZ COMPOUND?DISTURBING VIDEO ABOUT BLOOD ATONEMENT,CLICK THE LINK.

Click the Video, Jeffs was susposedly a Supporter of this Abandoned Mormon Practice. He desired to have this Practice brought back. The Temple was built with this part of the Plans, there was a High Temp Furnace put on site. 2700 Degree Furnace ( Incinerator ? or Crematorium ? ) The Electric Company should have records when this was placed ( there should be Permits. Some Blogs say it was to be placed BY /At the Tempe. Other Blogs say to look for the "Potato Shed "On Maps and Aerials. )

They also revealed that the Temple has Computers and BEDS and Records, and Vaults. Let's Hope that the Authorities explored all the Temple to better Investigate Crimes against the Children. This is the First Case in American History where Bed(s) were found In a Religous Temple, where Rituals were done to young girls.

The 16 year old Victim that called for Help on a Cellphone to a Domestic Abuse Center, Easter Weekend "Sara" , mother of an 8 month old infant still has not been found. She was beaten earlier this month, while pregnant and supposedly had broken ribs and was given medical care. ( Hopefully the records about her will be located ). Is it possible she has been transferred to another location? The Girls are routinely transported across State Lines ( Trafficking for Sexual Purposes is a Federal Crime). I still find it interesting the Federal Authorities , even the Justice Department has said Nothing about these Crimes By Pedophiles against Children. ( Perhaps WACO left them impotent on how to properly handle such a situation, but this is Crimes Against 100's of children. This is Human Rights Issue. This Debacle is also in Bush's State- yet his Silence has been deafening. As a Fundamentalist Christian perhaps he is conflicted how to Address these Crimes In His State).

( All of Information about this issue was obtained from Escapee /Former Sect member Blogs, for their safety I am not including their links...Please also read the Other Posts regarding this Investigation- there are links to information about the Compound and Updates about the Search for the Girl.)

THE MISSING 16YR OLD GIRL IS STILL MISSING,UPDATE FROM THE YFZ COMPOUND CASE( and Issues of Child Abuse and Pedophilia)

{originally posted 4.9.08}

*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
Where is the Girl that called for Help a week ago ? The Girl whose calls for Help on a cellphone has still not been found....Has she been Taken away ? Is she hidden in some secret Location at the Ranch ? Is she locked away ? Is she hidden at the Dairy ? the Quarry ? Did they check the Temple ? IS there a basement in the Temple ? 416 children and 170 women have been removed from the premises. The Girls' name is suposedly "Sarah", she was 16, she said she was beaten and raped by her spiritual husband multiple times. , she gave birth to a baby girl when she was 15. She claimed that she is pregnant again, and that a month ago she was beaten so bad that she suffered broken ribs. The Girl claimed that her Husband was Dale Barlow , who is 49, and that he was out of state. She said that she was beaten for disipline, but also locked in a room and denied food. She made calls to a Domestic Abuse Hotline on Easter Weekend, she was crying and fearful. ( I do hope that the calls were forwarded and recorded to 911).

Over at Blueberry's site there is a site that has amazing Aerials. I spent alot of time researching the other night, and looking at those aerials.Looking for little children, boys and girls. Most of the photos are empty of Children and Toys and children playing. The Fields do show girls working the crops. The Boys susposedly work in the Dairy and The Quarry , and the Cement Plant. ( How could anyone not recognize this as an Imprisoned Work Camp). The "Yearning For Zion" Camp was far from a Haven.....it was Nightmare for the Children that were being raised there. The All Seeing Eye Temple was also discovered tonight that there was a Bed Found at the Temple used for Sexual Rituals.

I worry the Media will mistakenly focus on the Religous Issues, and treat this story as a Religous Story, or "Lifestyle" issue. ( CNN is already starting to focus on the Polygamy angle- THAT should not be the main focus.But the Last Large Raid at one of these Compunds was 1953. My Question : NO ONE thought to check the safety of children there before now- Jeffs was investigated and put in jail over at year ago).Let's be clear this is about Children, MANY children , boys and girls being sexually abused, physically abused, and neglected....and emotionally traumatized. And about Children being held Captive in a Pedophilia Compound and being Victims of horrific Crimes.
