Why I never want to have a girl.

This article on Foxnews.com reminds me why I always say I hope I never have a girl.

Angry Dad Attacks Naked Boy in Daughter's Room With Metal Pipe

Saturday, September 13, 2008

DELTONA, Fla. — An angry Deltona father whacked his teenage daughter's boyfriend with a metal pipe after finding the boy naked in his daughter's room.

Authorities say the father, 45, didn't even know his daughter had a boyfriend or that the youngster had been sneaking into the home for more than a year.

When he heard noises coming from his daughter's bedroom Thursday morning and saw a stranger standing naked on the girl's bed, he swung a metal pipe. He then chased the teen out the front door and called police.

The boy was taken to the hospital where doctors closed a head wound with staples.

The father was charged with aggravated battery on a child and bonded out on $10,000.

They charged this man with a crime, for what! If their was a naked guy in my daughter's room I'd swing the pipe first and ask questions later. I don't know any father that wouldn't do the same. He didn't even know that his daughter was seeing this guy so in his mind it was an intruder.

Admittedly the fact his daughter didn't think she could tell her dad she had a boyfriend doesn't speak well for their relationship. Note I said tell him she had a boyfriend, not what she was doing, no father wants to know about that.

I imagine this case will get dropped as soon as everyone calms down. I would imagine the parents of the boy in the hospital probably wanted the father charged, but I hope they drop their complaint. This man did nothing anyone else wouldn't have done in the same situation. Please Lord if I ever have kids make them all boys.

Looks like not every judge in New York is crazy.

"Balan sued supermodel Le Call for $1 million, claiming that he lent her a Jean-Paul Gaultier-designed umbrella — and that she returned it to him in two pieces.

Balan claimed emotional distress and said that the model had intentionally damaged the umbrella."

The judge fined the lawyer $500 for wasting his time. He should fined him $5,000. Lawsuits like this make the case for tort-reform. Can we please stop clogging our system up with every jerk trying to take advantage of a situation to make a quick buck. Balan was actually trying to sue for emotional distress over his broken umbrella.

ABC interview edited to make Palin look bad?

It appears that ABC edited out important segments of some of Sarah Palin's answers. They also used the widely debunked quote about Palin saying the Iraq war was God's will. What Palin actually said was that we should pray that the war is God's will. In other words pray that we are doing to the will of God and not serving ourselves. This is the prayer of almost every religious person I know, without regard to their religion. Here is the complete quote.

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan."

Also regarding the question about Bush Doctrine there are several definitions of the doctrine. Bringing Democracy to the Middle East, preemptive war, If you harbor a terrorist you are a terrorist, and American unilateralism. All these are called the Bush Doctrine, so Palin was correct in asking for clarification.

Now that I have given this information up front I feel comfortable posting the interview. I hope everyone enjoys and feel free to leave comments and donate to my blog.

McCain attacked on the View

McCain handle the interview with ease. Aside from the absolutly ridiculous assertion by Goldberg that McCain become President would force her back into slavery. Apparently she's forgoten about the 13, 14, and 15 Amendments of the Constitution. The Amendments that the first Republican President Abraham Lincoln was responsible for. If it was me I would've said something like. No, Whoopi Republicans ended slavery 140 years ago. We also made African Americans citizens, and gave them due process rights.

Joy Beihart asked some questions about separation of church and state that McCain handled flawlessly. She basically implied that if your a Christian your biased against people of every other religion and people who don't have a religion. McCain quickly knocked that assertion down.







Obama makes fun of McCain for not being able to send an E-mail

So Barack Obama ran an ad today saying McCain is out of touch with America. One of the reasons listed was that he can't send an e-mail. While it is true that McCain can't send an e-mail it is because he's phyisicaly inable to so having his fingers broken during his time has a POW. Of course Obama once again failed to do any research. Here is a quote from a Washington Post article from 2000.

"McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball."

I don't think Obama intentionally made fun of McCain's war injuries. The ad does show someone who doesn't think before he speaks. It would've taken me two seconds to think, hmm I wonder if it has something to do with his status of a POW. Then ask one of my staffers, make sure this isn't related to his POW status before we shoot this ad. Obama just assumed that because McCain's an old man that must be the reason he can't use e-mail. Way to offend senior citizens and make fun of McCain's war injuries in one ad. Maybe next time you can make an ad that mocks.... I've been thinking for like five minutes and I can't think of anything worse. If you can leave it in the comments

What I was doing on 9/11

I guess this should've been posted yesterday, but like I said earlier this week I've been extremely busy.

I was running late for school, as usual, I basically got threw on some clothes and jumped in my car. On the radio it said that someone had flew a plane into the World Trade Center. I thought to myself "What an idiot! How do you hit a building? That must be the worst pilot in the world." Has I pulled into the parking place the second plane hit the towers. It was only then I realized what was going on. I said outloud, "Oh my God we're under attack." I got out of my car and walked into school. I kept looking around expecting something to blow up. I don't remember anything about what happened in class that day. I do remember there was a TV in the student lounge, I kept going in there every time I had the chance. I think watching the replay of the towers falling was probably the worst. Listening to the voices of the people watching the towers fall is what really got to me. One voice said "Oh, My God." The other said "Oh no, oh no!" You could hear the terror in their voice.

I also knew what was ahead of us on that day. I understood as did everyone else that this was going to be a long fight. I believed that the attack was just the start of series of attacks the U.S. mainland. I am honestly shocked it's seven years later and we haven't been hit again. No matter what you believe or think about President Bush he has to be given credit for that.

Spare Us More Change.....We've Had Plenty the Last Two Years

This is crossed posted from Smart Girl Politics. I thought it was so good I asked for permission to post it here. I hope everyone agrees with me.
http://smartgirlpolitics.blogspot.com/


In a letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Dave Bastl of Manor, PA wrote very simply what I have been trying to put to words for a few months:


George W. Bush has been in office for 71/2 years. For the first six years, the economy was fine. A little over one year ago:

Consumer confidence stood at a 21/2-year high
Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon
The unemployment rate was 4.5 percent
The Dow Jones hit a record high of 14,000-plus
Americans were buying new cars, taking cruises and vacations
overseas-living large!

But Americans wanted "Change." So, in 2006 they voted in a
Democrat Congress. And, yep, we got change alright:

Consumer confidence has plummeted
Gasoline hit $4 a gallon
Unemployment is up to 6.1 percent
Americans have seen their home values drop by trillions of
dollars
1 percent of American homes are in foreclosure
The Dow Jones is probing another low--nearing 11,000--and $2.5
trillion has evaporated from our investment portfolios.

Yep, in 2006 America voted for change! And we got it--a
Democrat Congress led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

Now the Democrats' candidate for President claims he's gonna
really give us change! Just how much more "change" do you thing you
can stand?



The fact of the matter is that it has been the do-nothing Congress with their pitiful 9% approval rating that have landed us in this current position. I have my own beef with President Bush. The fact that he has approved almost every spending bill this Congress has sent him is aggravating. However, many of the issues occurring today cannot or could not have been changed by Bush alone. Bush does not write bills, Congress does.

What bills have they written? Nothing significant that would help every day citizens. Yes, the bi-partisan Congress passed a stimulus package, but it was too late to stop the downfall. Have they taken ANY steps to reduce our dependency on foreign oil?


Republicans were voted out in 2006 because of the war and corruption. Well, the war is going better, and now the Democrats have the majority on corruption....Senator Dodd, Senator Rengle, Congressman William Jefferson.

Finally, a thought for my friends here in the Ohio Valley and for that matter OH, PA, WV, and MI......who runs your local, county, and state governments? How many of your Congressman and Senators are Democrats? I know this area. These areas have continued to lose jobs and population for decades and in MOST cases, the Democrats have run their governments for DECADES.........To agree with Mr. Bastl above, it's time for change...just not the change Obama offers.

McCain up 10% among likely voters in new Gallup poll

This same poll Maybe more importantly McCain has broken through the 50% threshold. This is extremely bad news for the Obama camp. It appears McCain's call to action resonated with undecideds across the county. I also believe returning to his original Maverick self is having an effect on voters. When I hear McCain talking about stomping out corruption and making pork barrel spenders famous. A chant I first heard at the South Carolina Republican Debate comes to mind, "Mac is Back!"


"McCain leads Democrat Barack Obama by 50%-46% among registered voters, the Republican's biggest advantage since January and a turnaround from the USA TODAY poll taken just before the convention opened in St. Paul. Then, he lagged by 7 percentage points."

"In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most likely to vote. The survey of 1,022 adults, including 959 registered voters, has a margin of error of +/— 3 points for both samples."

"McCain has narrowed Obama's wide advantage on handling the economy, by far the electorate's top issue. Before the GOP convention, Obama was favored by 19 points; now he's favored by 3."


Among the findings:

• Before the convention, Republicans by 47%-39% were less enthusiastic than usual about voting. Now, they are more enthusiastic by 60%-24%, a sweeping change that narrows a key Democratic advantage. Democrats report being more enthusiastic by 67%-19%.

• Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a national unknown before McCain chose her for the ticket 10 days ago, draws a strong reaction from voters on both sides. Now, 29% say she makes them more likely to vote for McCain, 21% less likely.

Obama was up by 7 points in the same poll when it was taken during a two day period
8/30-31. That means this is a seventeen point bounce for McCain from the Convention. I predicted 15 points so It turns out I was off by a little.

Sarah Palin will be interview by Charles Gibson This week.

I guess Palin has come out of "hiding" in Alaska. According to Sarah Palin has granted her first interview to Charles Gibson and the interview will occur later this week. It appears Gibson's decision not the question McCain about Palin's personal family life during the feeding frenzy last week led to him getting the interview. Gibson interviewed McCain during the convention and never gave asked about Palin's family, although he did ask about Policy positions and experience. It looks like the interview will take place this Thursday.
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5h21ZbzgPbTVRftcJPT5vkHkonY5QD93256F03

I have no doubt that Palin will handle herself very well in these interviews. She is very intelligent and should have no trouble answering policy questions. I'm also sure this interview will get huge ratings so probs to ABC for that.

I'm expecting a fair interview from Charles Gibson. I've never known him to be unfair to either party. I'm sure all the other media hounds are second guessing their attempts to belittle her and her family.

I would not expect to see Palin on NBC, or CNN due to their bias coverage of her right after the annoucement. I also don't think the American people will have a problem with her skiping those forums as long as she does interviews on the other networks, and answers questions at some events. Palin has bought life to the McCain campaign. If McCain wins this election I believe this pick will have a lot to do with it.

Hat tip: Blogs for John McCain

McCain 48 Obama 45 says Gallup

This poll does not take into account McCain's speech on Thursday night. This is the second poll I've seen that gives McCain the lead and I'm starting to be excited. I'm hoping McCain will top fifty percent in the polls that come out on Monday. It looks like the debates are the only thing that separate McCain from the White House.
