Debate On Why The Chicken Crossed The Road...

The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!
My friends--that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.
When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure -- right from Day One -- that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me...
The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW' problems.
Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road...
We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
That chicken crossed the road to steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.
Did the chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes, the chicken crossed the road,
But why it crossed I've not been told.
To die in the rain. Alone.
Because the chicken was gay! Can't you people see the plain truth? That's why they call it "the other side." Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like "the other side." That chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.
In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.
It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.
I have just released eChicken2007, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part of the Chicken. This new platform is much more stable and will never cra...#@&&^(C% .......reboot.
Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
I invented the chicken!
Did I miss one?
Where's my gun?
Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.

I thought to myself "Oh My God!"

So I was on ebay the other day. I wanted to sell an item that I had engraved incorrectly. So I decided to type the name Cayden, to see what came up, and if there was anything for sale similar.
What I got blew my mind. There was a person selling photos of a little boy on a bed in suggestive poses.
I grabbed my husband and started crying. He was in agreement that it was definately child porn.

I got on the net and called a hot line I found and this is what took place:
"center for missing and exploited children."
" I would like to report someone selling child pornography"
" Where is this happening?"
"I was searching something on ebay, and someone was selling partially nude photos of a boy"
"about how old was the boy?"
"9 or 10"
" Since it was through the Internet you need to log onto our website and email us your complaint"
"But the listing will end and it will be gone, is there someone I can call?"
"Your local police department and they will just call us."
"what about higher than that?"
"You can call the FBI"
"What would be their next step"
"They would report it to us"
"Does the police department or the FBI have to send their complaint to you via email too?!!!"
"excuse me ma'am"
"NO!!! There is a little boy somewhere being hurt and you want me to email you even though I have you on the phone with all the information you need."
"That is how the procedure works, we will follow up with it and let you know what happens, someone will contact you"

I slammed down the phone at that point.

I sent the complaint. Through my own digging, it turned out the photos were from a movie and they were still shots. They were very disturbing, but legal.

What upsets me even more...It has been two days, and I haven't heard a thing about my complaint. If it turned out to be a real boy, he could be dead by now.

Voting based on race???

So now we have the Democratic Nominee and the Republican Nominee. A white republican vs a black democrat.

Unfortunately, in this race, race is going to be a major issue. It is crazy to think that some black republicans wouldn't jump the pub boat b/c for the first time in history, they could possibly elect a black president.

It doesn't matter much to me what color the president is, as long as the president is the best person for the job. What I don't get is, it is a stereotype that black republicans are often considered outcasts when it concerns political agendas. If I am not mistaken, the majority of the black voters in this country are democrat. Why that is, I don't know. So if they are already being scrutinized for their republican views, why jump ship just to vote a candidate into office that you don't believe in based on race.
Part of me feels that Obama is counting on this to occur. And has always done so. He tries to appeal to the white voters by stating that he is half white, but to me, Obama has always lived his life as a black man. He called his grandmother a
'typical white woman'.

Why post this? I am not the first,
Here is the link to the article. A snippet below:
"I don't necessarily like his policies; I don't like much that he advocates, but for the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it," Williams said. "I can honestly say I have no idea who I'm going to pull that lever for in November. And to me, that's incredible."

Just as Obama has touched black Democratic voters, he has engendered conflicting emotions among black Republicans. They revel over the possibility of a black president but wrestle with the thought that the Illinois senator doesn't sit beside them ideologically.

If you don't agree with him, or like his policies, what makes you think that he is good for our country??? In a perfect world, race wouldn't be the issue. But we live in a world that doesn't see a persons values first, you see a persons physical characteristics first. With that first perception follows a stereotype, and that stereotype is believed until proved different.

The article is very interesting. I hope those reading check it out.
This is going to be one of the most historical and memorable elections in history. It has already made history in the primary electoral process. Follow it closely, vote wisely

This spells T*R*O*U*B*L*E;

Compared to it's size, Washington DC's crime rate is in your face all sorts of crazy. It's ranked # 7 on the highest murder rate in the country.
Well in order to curb DC Crime, they are trying to implement a new program called 'neighborhood safety zones'. The attempt is to seal off rough neighborhoods in order to prevent the spread of crime.
The Examiner reports "Under an executive order expected to be announced today, police Chief Cathy L. Lanier will have the authority to designate “Neighborhood Safety Zones.” At least six officers will man cordons around those zones and demand identification from people coming in and out of them. Anyone who doesn’t live there, work there or have “legitimate reason” to be there will be sent away or face arrest..."
So say you were going to a neighborhood to sell drugs, you would be turned away if you didn't live there. But don't you think that they already have drug dealers living in their neighborhoods? What about profiling? What about search and seizure?

Although I agree that the neighborhoods in question.. I nor my family, would step a pinky toe into them. BUT, in the United States, you have a right to move about the country free. Who is to say who can go where? I think this sets up a certain precedent. What about rich neighborhoods looking to deny access to someone coming in? If you don't have the right car...turn around!

Granted, the police are working this task force, but it is a can of worms just waiting to be opened.

I think the police department needs reform. Did you know that if a police officer touches a criminal and the criminal cries about it, the officer is automatically releived of duty first and investegated second? The criminals have more rights than officers. That is why no officer wants to patrol DC. Not only that, but they are underpaid by a city that is #7 in the United States!!! Would you want to work as an officer, being scrutinzied and underpaid in DC.

Neither would I!

We weren't ready, but he was

Friday, Michael and I had to make the decision to let our Dakota pass.
The doctor came over, we were outside, the sun was shining bright, the wind was blowing a cool breeze and the birds were chirping. Dakota gave us one of his quirky smiles with the Elvis lip, then laid his head in Michael's lap.
The Vet bent down and gave Dakota a hug and said "I'm sorry I couldn't make you better". She teared up a bit.

Michael and I were devestated. It was one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make as a couple. We are truly mourning his free spirit.
The house is a bit quieter this evening, but we know that Dakota was tired. His spirit was so broken. We loved him so much. I hope that he knew that. I can only pray that his last moments were filled with nothing but love.
