I'm with you OM! Too much butt sittin and not enough a$$ kickin! Jaw-jackin, lip flappin never solved a thing and it won't solve anything now. I've suggested, numerous times that with Memorial Day on us, (Thank you for your service BTW) why aren't there some peaceful protests happening? What a better time to remind the govt. what our service MEN fought and died for than the day set aside to honor those men and women of the the armed forces? No, we can plan our cook-outs and beer drinking but we can't be bothered to stand up and fight the most important battle of our lives! We'd rather not let something as distasteful as government atrocities interfere with our self serving plans! Not that I have anything against cook-outs or a few cold beers, don't get me wrong. I just think we need to get our priorities straight, for once, and act while there is still time to, maybe, save our Nation. E-mail, snail mail, faxes and phone calls may all be ignored by the intended recipients, but at least there is an effort being made. If NOTHING else, they will realize the increase in correspondence and, even if they don't actually KNOW what that correspondence says, they will know what it means.

TXTJ, I purchased a brand new Chevy truck 1/2 ton with heavy duty towing package and high geared rear-end, automatic tranny in 1976 and I still drive it today! The only trouble I ever had with it was my son tore the transmission out of it and threw a rod, hot rodding it when he was 16. He worked many long hours to pay for that repair! But it taught him how to treat a vehicle so I don't regret making the investment in repairing it. It has over 300K miles on the "new engine and transmission" and it still runs like a top! It is easy to work on, though replacement parts are harder and harder to find. (Lost the oil dip stick and had to go to a wrecking yard for one). I'll drive that thing to MY grave! I also have a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser. It gets better gas mileage but I had to replace the transmission at 57K mi. It just went out, no warning, no slipping, no grinding, nothing to forewarn me. Thank God for extended Factory warranties! I will probably never own another Chrysler product, though I will keep the Petey car. My main means of transportation, around locally, is a little Honda 250cc Rebel! 75+ mpg and a lot of fun! The Petey car is for longer trips and the truck, well, it's for everything else like hauling fence supplies, horse feed, hay, moving the kids, etc. If all else fails, I'll still have my horses! And there's not a "mustang" in the bunch. Sorry, I just don't LIKE fords!

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>I pity you that you did not get the support from your famliy that you desperately needed. I had my parents to turn to. It was difficult on them, as well, but they were VERY supportive of me and were willing to stand by me, regardless of the decision I made. We discussed all of the options and, even though they did not believe in abortion, they recognised it was my decision, and my decision alone, to make. This was NOT, under any circumstances, a decision that was taken lightly. It seemed like an eternity of discussions before I made, what I thought, was the most intelligent decision I could make. Even after I had decided what I was going to do, we discussed it some more. My parents played "devil's advocate" and proposed every possible scenario for me to consider before we made that appointment.I was blessed that they were willing to support me. Maybe it would have been different if I was pregnant because of consensual sex instead of a rape, butI really don't think that would have been the case. So, you, my friend are the one, IMHO, that is to be pitied.</DIV> <DIV>BTW, Be proud of your decision to raise your child.I know it had to be hard on you, but I think my choice was just as hard, if not harder, on me.</DIV> <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial">

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>I can't understand how any woman could not be tormented by a decision to end their own child's life, regardless of the circumstances under which that child was conceived. Imho, these women are either lying or they have no conscience. I'm betting they are lying (more to themselves than anyone else) so they don't have to face the reality of what they did. I have been on an emotional roller coaster all day, since I first made that post. (Though I am very tired, Ican't go to sleep!)I opened up a very old wound and it still hurts to go back to those days.I am a Mom, and Granny, and I know the love a Mother feels for her children, and the grief of "losing" a child. I pity those women if they are being truthful that they have no regrets about their actions.</DIV> <DIV></DIV> <DIV>

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>The Republicans are worse than the Democrats! They are SUPPOSED to be the Consertative Party, but they are just an extension of the Liberals operating under a different name. The whole bunch of them, (R)'s and (D)'s are worthless and need to be run out on a rail, tarred and feathered for good measure!If just 1 of the republicans stood up and showed some backbone, maybe others would follow, but they are all too politically correct to rock the boat. They would rather stand by and watch our country flushed down the S--- hole! The best hope we have is to let them know that we are not going to take it anymore. We have to scream long and loud, daily, until they get the message. I would like to suggest you visit http://www.theythinkyouarestupid.com/index.shtmla... see what is happening in the Texas Hill Country. Then get your local tea party organizers to coordinate with other tea party organizers so we can keep the momentum going. We cannot sit on our laurels and wait for others to take the lead any longer. It's way past time to act so we have to make up for lost time!</DIV> <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial">

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial">I suggest you take a look at the San Antonio Tea Party site http://www.theythinkyouarestupid.com/index.shtmla... see what they have working. Get your local tea party organizers to coordinate activities with other tea party organizers, like they did for Tax Day. If you aren't involved with a tea party group, get involved or start one! I'm sure any of the groups that are up and running would be more than happy to help another group get started.Visit other forums and see what they have going on. Like I used to tell my employees, "Do SOMETHING! Even if it's wrong, just do something!" My husband has increased his w-4 dependents to 99 so nothing is going to Uncle Sam right now. In 6 months, he will change it back to 3 +$50.00 so we won't owe next April. Six months of no $$ coming in will get their attention, but, of course, it will take more than just a few doing that. (The unemployemnt rate may take care of that!) Instead of blogging, send emails, snail mails, faxes, and telephone calls to your "representatives" and let them know what you think. Do it everyday! They may just be ignored, but they will know something is going on by the increased amount of correspondence they are receiving. It doesn't matter if they are Democrats, Republicans, or Clowns, let them know you are mad as HELL and are through with big government.Threaten to move to Texas! Throw a temper tantrum until they hear you, it works for 2 year olds! Get everyone you know informed and taking action. Keep the momentum rolling and, like a tiny pebble dropped in a pond, the ripples will go on for a long time. Then, if everything still fails, at least you will know you did SOMETHING, even if it was wrong!</DIV> <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial"></DIV> <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial">

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>Yes, I was reluctant to proceed for the very same reason, but the petition, IMO, is on the right track. I was careful not to sign up for anything else and unchecked the appropriate boxes and check the ones that needed to be checked. It can be tricky, but I am overly careful and think I may have used their trickiness against them!I apologize for not mentioning this but I needed to dash out the door as soon as I finished that post and just didn't slow down long enough to go into the details.</DIV> <DIV>

 IntenseDebate Notification <DIV>That is not too difficult to answer, now. Knowing what I know, no, I would not have made the same decision.I would have had and raised that baby. Now I know that God would have provided for me and it and I would have loved it, even though I hated the circumstances under which it was conceived. That child had no part in the violent act that created it and would surely have been loved, in spite of it's origin. </DIV> <DIV style="FONT: 10pt arial">

It is my deepest hope that someone can learn from my experience. Then what I went through, and still am going through, will have a purpose. To have gone through something so traumatic can only have some "good" come from it if I share it so that, maybe, another woman can draw some strength from my words. If I manage to "teach" as beckgether put it, even one person, that life is precious and should not be bandied about like a playing chip in a board game, then my trauma will have some meaning. As I have read the kind replies, tears have been streaming down my face. I have opened an old wound, and it hurts, but I know, because of the replies, that there is more healing, too. Thanks to each of you that have encouraged me and taken the time to ''pen" that encouragement. I have been blessed, this day, by your words.
