And Then There Were 14- Mother Of Octuplets Has 6 More At Home!

No wonder the California mother of octuplets refuses to reveal her identity, and any other information surrounding the multiple births. All that hoopla about 8 miracle babies has suddenly turned into a moral and ethical question of personal responsibility, or lack thereof. Why?

1. It turns out the thirty-something year-old mother is possibly single, living with her parents in a 3 bedroom house. There has been no mention of a father.

2. The grandmother, Angela Victoria Suleman, filed for bankruptcy last year. The grandfather, who is said to be an Iraqi national,(though that's not confirmed) is returning to Iraq as a contractor to help support the horde.

3. And the kicker? She also happens to have 6 other kids! 7, 6, 5, 3 and 2 year-old twins. (The woman has been busy!)

4. She underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF), and it's highly likely the twins were a result of fertility treatments, as well.

The whole ultra-bizarre situation begs for answers, which won't be forthcoming any time soon, as the family is asking for privacy.


1. Where is the father?

2. Why is a young mother of 6 toddlers getting in vitro fertilization?

3. How could the fertility doctor, in all good conscience, even allow this young woman to undergo treatment in the first place; and why did they implant so many embryos when it's a danger to both mother and babies?

4. Who is going to take care of all those kids, and how are they going to support them? Taxpayers' money? The kindness of strangers? It's going to cost millions just for the bare necessities for the 8, let alone the 6 others. And the birthing and extended hospital stay (for the octuplets) is going to cost well over $1,000,000.00.

5. Are they going to cram all those 14 kids into 1 bedroom? The grandfather claims they have another large house somewhere (that he refuses to disclose), but is that true? And if not how are they going to manage? Aren't there legal issues regarding how many people can live under one roof?

6. How is she going to nurture, love and give enough attention to all 14?

7. What is wrong with this woman's parents?

8. What is wrong with her?

Frankly, I find the whole situation rather obscene.

UPDATE 1/31/09

This story gets more bizarre by the day. According to her mother Angela, Nadya Suleman (we finally have a first name), has been obsessed with having babies since she was a teen, and ALL 14 children were through in vitro! She is definitely not married, and has a degree in child and adolescent development. She is studying for master's degree in counseling. She also apparently had some psychological counseling of her own to deal with her obsession, which obviously did no good.

This young woman has major problems and has been failed by her parents, the psychologist, and the fertility doctors. Someone should have said NO, at some point. I feel sorry for those poor children!

Bad Boy Blagojevich Goes Bonkers

I can't decide whether Rod Blagojevich is incredibly stupid, supremely arrogant, totally nuts or all of the above. Maybe that mop of hair has somehow put too much pressure on his brain and he's just flipped out. But you have to admit, the Illinois Governor has been highly entertaining these past few months, since he was busted trying to sell Obama's vacant senate seat. He's run the gamut from denial to defiance to paranoia to outright lunacy.

He's been in denial since day one, and continues to be so. In a recent interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC'S Good Morning America, Sawyer asked Blago if he had done anything wrong. His response,

"Absolutely not and I'll have a chance in a criminal case to show evidence and bring witnesses. And this impeachment trial actually gives me an opportunity, if it was fair, if it allowed me to actually bring witnesses, to prove that the allegations are not true."

Does he truly think he will be exonerated when FBI wire taps have him saying things like
"I got this thing and it's bleepin' golden. I'm just not giving it up for bleepin' nothing.".

And, he claims the Illinois house is out to get him because he helped the people of Illinois.

"The causes of the impeachment are because I've done things to fight for families."

Huh? What delusional, paranoiac world is this man living in? But I guess he might as well chalk it up to some kind of conspiracy theory since he has no other leg to stand on.

His latest bizarro act is claiming he had considered offering the seat to Oprah Winfrey. How wacky is that?!

And it's not just trying to auction off the senate seat the man is guilty of. The Chicago Sun Times compiled the following list of transgressions:

1. Gov. Blagojevich plotted to auction off President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat for personal benefit.

2. Blagojevich tried to get members of the Chicago Tribune editorial board fired.

3. The governor signed a bill in exchange for a campaign contribution from the horse racing industry.

4. Blagojevich awarded a Tollway contract in exchange for campaign contributions.

5. The governor threatened to withhold reimbursements to hospitals and doctors in Illinois in exchange for campaign contributions.

6. The governor engaged in pay-to-play in making appointments, and plotted to award a state job to Ali Ata with the Illinois Finance Authority in exchange for campaign contributions.

7. The governor tried to award state contracts to Joseph Cari for campaign contributions.

8. Blagojevich attempted to exchange state permits for campaign cash.

9. The governor failed to abide by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules and unlawfully expanded the FamilyCare program.

10. Blagojevich purchased additional flu vaccines without proper approval, making the sale illegal.

11. The governor attempted to import prescription drugs from Canada without consent of the Food and Drug Administration.

12. Blagojevich did not follow the appropriations process when he allocated money for the Agency Efficiency Initiative.

13. The governor violated both state and federal laws in the firing and hiring of various state employees.

That's some list of accomplishments!

As entertaining as this whole saga has been, I find the man incredibly distasteful. He looks like a a 2-bit thug, and you have to wonder how on earth did he manage to get elected Governor of Illinois not once, but twice!

If he had any shred of dignity he would have stepped down ages ago. And had he been a Republican, this prolonged circus act would have ended long ago.

Mess At The Mall And Monument After Inauguration

Ironic that all those lovely liberals left a pile of crap to be cleaned up once the hope, glory and change of Obama's inauguaration ended, costing the taxpayers plenty, with crews having to clean into the night. What happened to not trashing the planet?
Apparently the park service collects tons of trash daily from the Mall and the Monument, but one would think the Obamaniacs would know better.

Just because a liberal, Democrat was elected president, don't expect the government to pick up after you! Pick up after yourselves!

Gitmo Terrorist Detainees- Coming To A Backyard Near You!

So get this- claims military officials released a SECRET list of potential military bases to house about 250 of those charming terrorist types that are currently being held in Guantanamo, when Obama closes the place down.

So tell me, since when did secret mean BLAST THE POTENTIAL LOCATIONS ACROSS THE WORLDWIDE WEB?! I had no idea there was a new definition for "secret".

Let's see we have

"Camp Pendleton in California, Fort Leavenworth in Kansas; the Marine Air Station in Miramar, California; and the U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig in South Carolina ."

One of the bases is in my backyard, and frankly I don't want them within 5,000 miles from where I live, which means not on this continent. And, sure, let's advertise this "classified" information globally, so all their little terrorist friends can make plans for their escape. If 8 inmates from a Clovis, New Mexico prison were able to break out of jail last August (4 are still at large, I think) you don't think the suicidal peeps of all those Gitmo detainees won't attempt something brazen? Remember when 100s of militant Taliban fighters (along with 100s of other criminals) escaped from a prison in Kandahar, June 2008! You don't think they'll try that here?!

If we ARE going to transfer them to the U.S. I don't want to know where. I don't want to know this information. I don't want unfriendlies to know this information.

There's a thing as too much information. Keep that kind of information classified, please!

More Hamas Dirty Tricks- Ambulances Not Off Limits

The Swedish Red Cross recently condemned Israel for targeting an ambulance in the Gaza Strip.

But look carefully at this video, and you will understand why the Israeli military might target an ambulance.

Not that this is anything new.

Just another Hamas dirty trick, like hiding behind children and women's hijabs. Or shooting rockets from schools, mosques or hospitals.

Adolf Hitler Taken From Parents Home In New Jersey

Yup, young Adolf Hitler (3) is alive and well and living in New Jersey with his parents. At least he was living with them until New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services removed Adolf and his other 2 siblings from their home- 1 year-old JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie who is 8-months-old. No reasons were given for removal. But N.G. Berrill (forensic psychologist) considers naming a kid Adolf Hitler child abuse. Which it is. Mind-pollution at its best.

"Part of it is the infantile nature of the parents’ behavior," Berrill said. "You can name your dog something weird, but they think they’re making some kind of bold statement with the children, not appreciating that the children will have separate lives and will be looked at in a negative light until they’re able to change their name. It is abuse."

Adolf Hitler? JoyceLynn Aryan Nation? Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie? (Supposedly named for Heinrich Himmler!)

The family made news last December when Shoprite refused to sell them a cake decorated with "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler". Heath and Deborah Campbell (the parents) were outraged. Daddy Heath complained that
"Other kids get their cake. I get a hard time. It's not fair to my children. How can a name be offensive?"

Though he claims he and his wife are not racist (yeah, right!) the house is filled with swastikas, Heath wears an old pair of boots belonging to a Nazi soldier, he doesn't believe the races should mix and he is a holocaust-denier. Papa Heath is also baffled why people are shocked by his son's name.
"They're just names, you know. Yeah, they (the Nazis) were bad people back then. But my kids are little. They're not going to grow up like that."

This is a perfect example of why people should be given intelligence tests before being allowed to bear children.

Mickey Rourke Doesn't Blame Bush!

Well, well, well, is actor Mickey Rourke a closet Republican? I had no idea, but one has to wonder.

In an interview with Britain's GQ Magazine, he shared the following:

"President Bush was in the wrong place at the wrong time, I don't know how anyone could have handled this situation.......... I don't give a f**k who's in office, Bush or whoever, there is no simple solution to this problem... I'm not one of those who blames Bush for everything. This s**t between Christians and Muslims goes back to the Crusades, doesn't it. .....It's too easy to blame everything on one guy. These are unpredictable, dangerous times, and I don't think that anyone really knows quite what to do."

He also mentioned how surprised he was at Britain's acceptance of Islamic fundamentalism:

"I was in London recently and I couldn't believe all these hate-talking fanatics you have over here who are allowed to carry on doing their thing even when a bus full of women and children gets blown to pieces.

"I know you've deported one or two of them, but it seems crazy. I think there is worse to come, something terrible will happen to either America or the U.K., or France even. I don't think these fundamentalists should be allowed to talk all this crap, and brainwashing these young kids."

You certainly have to give him credit. When most everyone, these days, is hyper-critical of G.W. Bush's 8 year's in office, bad-boy Mickey has the guts to come out and admit he actually sympathises with the President, and doesn't blame him for all the ills in the world.

What a nice surprise this was!

Welcome to the fold, Mickey!

Peace, Love and Understanding

The lyrics of this old song, by Elvis Costello, keep running through my mind. Costello's words seem to sum up what many of us are feeling, during these turbulent times. The song really says it all.

If we all could just set aside our religious, cultural and political differences, set aside our hatred, our fear and ignorance of others, our beliefs that my way is the only way, we might achieve peace in this century. It is up to us as individuals to affect change, when we change, the world changes accordingly.

" You must be the change you wish to see in the world" Mahatma Ghandi

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
Theres one thing I wanna know:
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding? ohhhh
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

cause each time I feel it slippin away, just makes me wanna cry.
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding? ohhhh
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding?

So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

cause each time I feel it slippin away, just makes me wanna cry.
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding? ohhhh
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding? ohhhh
Whats so funny bout peace love & understanding?

The Story Of Gaza- Golda Meir Quote

This was sent to me via email. Another gem from Golda Meir. Pretty much sums up the Israel vs Arab situation in the middle-east.

Palestinian Hatred In Our Own Backyard- Ft. Lauderdale Pro-Hamas Demonstration Shows Their True Colors

This whole situation in Gaza seems to have flushed all of the anti-Semitic rats out into the open. Yes, I know most will say they are NOT anti-Israel, they are NOT anti-Jewish, they are simply anti-Zionist, but I don't buy that for a minute. You simply have to look at the comments on pro-Palestinian blogs (or other Islamic sites) to see that it goes way beyond Zionism. It's truly sickening.

A recent pro-Hamas demonstration, right here in downtown Ft. Lauderdale, Florida , on December 30, 2008, also shows their true colors, in no uncertain terms. The Sun-Sentinel account of the anti-Israel/U.S. protest was shamefully tame, considering what actually occurred there. I emailed the reporter asking him why, but have yet to hear back. I will update, if and when I hear back.

On the other hand, Tom Trento, of the Florida Security Council , took his video camera and walking amongst the Palestinian protesters shot approximately 5 to 6 minutes of footage of the hate-fest.

To set the scene: According to Trento some 200 to 300 people amassed (over time) at a busy intersection of downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Across the street were about 50 pro-Israeli supporters. One has to wonder why the Sun-Sentinel reporter, Scott Wyman, quoted the following: "Pro-Palestinian demonstrators called on the United States to stop aid to Israel. Ahmad Suid of Naples brought his 8-year-old son and 9- and 10-year-old daughters to the rally holding signs saying "Stop the Genocide" and "I'm not a terrorist.""This is absolutely inhumane," Suid said. "This is a modern-day holocaust.""

and not the following:

A young Palestinian woman shouting "You loser. Your mother's whore!" Others, shouting, "Go back to the oven!! You need a big oven, that's what you need!!" Another young woman holding a Nuke Israel placard screamed " Nuke, nuke Israel!!" "There is no Israel!!" And many shouts of "Go to hell, Israel!!"

At one point, Trento films an African-American Imam calling the male protesters to prayer. The Imam then spends a few minutes rallying the troops in Arabic. I haven't a clue what he said, but whatever it was, it riled up the crowd, and I can guaran-damn-tee you it was inflammatory. Trento then shows the Palestinians violently and aggressively attempting to confront the pro-Israeli group, as the police attempt to hold them back.

There is also a short interview with the Imam explaining how the Muslims must try harder to educate people about Islam, "..because once people really understand the real beauty of Islam, they will have no choice but to accept it, because they will realize it's part of their nature." Telling words. No choice but to accept.

The real beauty of Islam? Great way of educating, dude- young girls in Hijab telling people to fuck themselves, screeching "Nuke Israel". Angry Arabs shouting obscenities. Lovely.

Part of my nature? Not mine!

Accept it? Over my dead body.

Palestinian Calls For Death To All Juice!

What kind?? Grapefruit, Orange, Pomegranate? Oh, the idiot seems to have written Zionist between "To All" and "Juice". Anyone know what Zionist Juice is? Tangy? Sweet?

Note the little kid behind the placard... bet he hates Tomato!

Photo was taken at a pro-Palestinian protest in Manhattan last week.

Such ignorance. Sigh.

With Wishes For Peace In The New Year!

The fireworks, last night, sounded like the crackle of gunfire and it saddened me to think that in so many parts of our world, this disturbing sound is probably a daily occurrence, and I wondered what it must be like to live in constant fear.

2008 was a turbulent and troubling year with violence erupting throughout most regions of the world; from the Middle East to India to our own back yard. I'm not just referring to the bloodshed that's perpetrated in the name of religion or politics, but also to the violence that occurs in our cities, inner cities, suburbs or rural areas because of drugs or family disputes or whatever pathetic reason that drives someone to harm another. In today's society people (like possessions) have become disposable and it seems, for many, that the easier option is to kill rather than deal with whatever negative situation they happen to be in, or think they might be in. So mothers suffocate their babies and dump their newborns in canals, rather than give them up for adoption; husbands kill wives because it's simpler than a divorce; daughters kill parents because the parents disapprove of their boyfriends; brothers kill sisters because of disputes over their inheritance; criminals and drug dealers kill for an easy buck (or revenge), because they're too lazy to work, pedophiles give in to their sick lust, rather than seek help. People choose the easy way out (whether through lack of conscience or ignorance or both) regardless of the consequences, and as a result, the innocent suffer.

But, in spite of the daily barrage of bad tidings we call 'news', I still harbor hope! Hope for a world in which people can live in harmony and peace. Where freedom (our greatest gift from GOD) is something that is cherished and encouraged and allowed to flourish.

Every New Year brings, with its birth, the possibility for transformation and renewal and evolution. We start each year with a clean slate, and it is up to us, as individuals, to make the necessary changes within ourselves to move forward as enlightened beings. If we purge our hearts and minds of hatred and all negativity and replace those feelings with Love we can make a difference, because Love does truly conquer all.

God bless this country and all those in the world who embrace freedom, and God bless our troops and allied troops, who make that possible!!

Happy 2009 and God bless you all!
