8 year old commits suicide…

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on May 27, 2011

http://www.kltv.com/story/14713790/death-of

Something doesn’t sit right with me on this one….she was found on her knees with bailing wire wrapped around her neck.

How many 8 year olds do you know who could do that?

Scrapes and abrasions on her body…I wonder if anyone bothered with a rape kit?

I don’t blame her parents AT ALL….why was she allowed to go traipsing through the woods alone?  How do we know she actually committed suicide?

I don’t like it….AT ALL

“Plus Size” models–what a joke

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on September 9, 2009

Crystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model out there. 

She is a size 12.

When did a size 12 become “plus-size” –that is something I would like to know.

I was watching Fox and Friends this morning and this gal was on, talking about her career, and her new book, and how plus-sized models were becoming more and more accepted. They are “back on the catwalk”. 

What catwalk is she talking about, exactly?

  Image comment: Crystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model of our times
Image credits: 3.bp.blogspotCrystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model of our times The image below has been resized. Click on it to enlarge.‘; document.getElementById(‘imgfgf’).style.display = ‘block’; this.width=810; }”>

Now, she is very beautiful, no doubt, but lets be very clear about something, size 12 is now considered plus-size.

Let that sink in. 

I used to think size 16-18 was plus size, didn’t you?  Let’s be honest, the term “plus-size” in itself has negative connotations.  I hear “plus-size” and I think “fat”.  It’s a knee jerk reaction as I have been conditioned by the media to think as such.  Havn’t you?

So, I currently am one size off from being “plus size” since I am a size 10.  Wow, just gonna let THAT one sink in!  Have you even been over to the plus-size section at the clothing store?  They consist of sizes 18 and up (and lots of size 22)..I know because I was looking at some cute clothes the other day, they were all to big, and then I looked up and saw that I was in the “Women’s” section.

Whitney Thompson First Plus Size America’s Next Top Model

 

The problem is our perceptions.  Above is a picture of  “America’s Next Top Model” winner.  She apparently is plus size too.  And supposedly a size 14 at a height of 5’10”.  36-32-43

whitney-thompson

Yep, she looks like she belongs in the “plus-sized” catagory to me too (rolls eyes).

What we really need is to change our perception of what is acceptable/achievable.  The MSM isn’t going to help us do that by printing photos of plus sized models as they are way to busy keeping us up to date on Brangelina

Is this really a “movement”?  Will magazines start to show size 12 girls on it’s covers in lieu of the immaciated pre-teens we are used to seeing?

Is the media just looking for a good story to up their numbers, and charge more money to their advertisers???

makes me wonder…..

How does that make you feel?  I don’t think it will make one iota of a difference in the MSM because magazines will put pics of this girl on their covers instead of the what is really out there. 

We simply prefer to look at  the unattainable on the covers of magazines.  It makes us feel better about ourselves…doesn’t it?  (rolls eyes)

Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Birth Control in an ear of corn? The wave of the future…

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on July 8, 2009

Well, we can thank Glenn Beck for clue-ing me in to this little tid-bit of information.  He was interviewing an author of a new book called “The Doomsday Key”.  The author talked about researching GMO foods and how he found out about a company, called Epicyte, which developed a line of GMO corn which renders males who eat it infertile.

Did you get that?  The men who ate the corn can no longer make sperm….no sperm, no babies. 

Check it out for yourselves…http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=563

A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.

Ahhhh, our old friends Monsanto.  Did you watch the movie from the last post yet?  Wow, these guys are into everything…

The rest of the article is even scarier….read on….

In the 1990’s the UN’s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, allegedly against Tentanus, a sickness arising from such things as stepping on a rusty nail. The vaccine was not given to men or boys, despite the fact they are presumably equally liable to step on rusty nails as women.

Because of that curious anomaly, Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization became suspicious and had vaccine samples tested. The tests revealed that the Tetanus vaccine being spread by the WHO only to women of child-bearing age contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy. None of the women vaccinated were told.

It later came out that the Rockefeller Foundation along with the Rockefeller’s Population Council, the World Bank (home to CGIAR), and the United States’ National Institutes of Health had been involved in a 20-year-long project begun in 1972 to develop the concealed abortion vaccine with a tetanus carrier for WHO. In addition, the Government of Norway, the host to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault, donated $41 million to develop the special abortive Tetanus vaccine.

I used to wonder why some peep’s, mainly homeschoolers and the like, refused to vaccinate their children.  Some think it causes Autism, which there is a lot of evidence, to say the least, of a connection, and some think vaccines are just unecessary in a society which has virtually eradicated most of the diseases we routinely vaccinate for.  Now, I find out our own government, along with the WHO (world health organization) had developed a vaccined to make a certain sect of women unable to carry a pregnancy to term. 

Utter Ridiculousness.

I think I may have to stop eating corn.  If this has been planted out in the open, and methinks it likely has, do we really think this corn was contained to only the test fields into which it was planted?  Do I look stupid to you?  No wonder we have a crazy amount of women on fertility drugs.  If this stuff is out there, and it is currently in some farmer’s field, reproducing and infecting other strains of corn, we have no way of knowing if we are eating it or not because our fantastic former president declaired GMO’s and regular food the same and therefore they don’t need to be labled as such. 

Think about how many things we eat that have corn, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup in them….

Hundreds of thousands of items….everything from your ketchup to your soft drinks to your yogurt and even your applesauce (unless your like me and get unsweetened applesauce). 

More to come on corn syrup and it’s chemical cousin high-fructose corn syrup…

I betcha can’t wait!!!

GMO’s–Genetically Modified Organisms–Frankenfood

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on June 22, 2009

Well, a good friend of mine sent me an email today about GMO’s and how they are the bane of society. 

I tend to agree with her. 

I understand the basic premise of altering our food’s genetic make-up for the better-ment of society, mainly by food becoming shelf stable for a long time…a really long time.  And because it looks fantastic…you don’t realize that tomato you are eating on your hamburger is acutally three weeks old.  It’s an atrocity.  How nutritious do you think that tomato is?  How long do you think it took to get to your local Micky D’s? 

We really have lost all touch with reality when it comes to our food.

GMO’s can currently be found in 95% of our corn supply, in our canola, soy and cotton.  All of these are marketed by a company called Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar pesticide and seed manufacturer. 

They own patents on seeds.  If they find their seed growing in your field because it blew in from another farmer’s field, or was dropped there by a passing bird, they will sue you.  Nice folks. 

Now, the powers that be, are getting ready to add wheat to the GMO list.  And then, whether you want to or not, you will be eating wheat created in a lab.  Kewl.  Really (rolls eyes).

Here is a really neat movie about our food system and how perverted it is courtesy of Monsanto and greed.  It’s long, about an hour and a half, but it’s eye opening. 

 http://www.hulu.com/watch/67878/the-future-of-food

(one of these days i will figure out how to imbed one of these video thingies)

I have watched about half of it, and it’s very disturbing, to say the least. 

I don’t know what else to say about it.  We have to change our diet, I have to change our diet.  I’m working on it. 

hmmm…i will be doing more research on this topic…it’s very interesting to me

Freedom of Choice Act is really freedom to murder

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on January 21, 2009

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:H.R.1964:

 

 

A BILL

To protect, consistent with Roe v. Wade, a woman’s freedom to choose to bear a child or terminate a pregnancy, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Freedom of Choice Act’.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress finds the following:

(1) The United States was founded on core principles, such as liberty, personal privacy, and equality, which ensure that individuals are free to make their most intimate decisions without governmental interference and discrimination.

(2) One of the most private and difficult decisions an individual makes is whether to begin, prevent, continue, or terminate a pregnancy. Those reproductive health decisions are best made by women, in consultation with their loved ones and health care providers.

(3) In 1965, in Griswold v. Connecticut (381 U.S. 479), and in 1973, in Roe v. Wade (410 U.S. 113) and Doe v. Bolton (410 U.S. 179), the Supreme Court recognized that the right to privacy protected by the Constitution encompasses the right of every woman to weigh the personal, moral, and religious considerations involved in deciding whether to begin, prevent, continue, or terminate a pregnancy.

(4) The Roe v. Wade decision carefully balances the rights of women to make important reproductive decisions with the State’s interest in potential life. Under Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the right to privacy protects a woman’s decision to choose to terminate her pregnancy prior to fetal viability, with the State permitted to ban abortion after fetal viability except when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health.

 

What about protecting the life or health of the baby?

 

 

(5) These decisions have protected the health and lives of women in the United States. Prior to the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, an estimated 1,200,000 women each year were forced to resort to illegal abortions, despite the risk of unsanitary conditions, incompetent treatment, infection, hemorrhage, disfiguration, and death. Before Roe, it is estimated that thousands of women died annually in the United States as a result of illegal abortions.

 

Uh, ok…huh?  Forced is not the correct term here.  Those women let themselves get pregnant because of irresponsibility, because let’s face it, it is ultimately up to the woman to stop herself from getting pregnant.  I don’t see how they were “forced” to get an illegal abortion…why didn’t they just have the baby and then give him/her up for adoption?  This is something I don’t understand…Nobody forced them to do anything (unless they were raped which is a different discussion).

 

(6) In countries in which abortion remains illegal, the risk of maternal mortality is high. According to the World Health Organization, of the approximately 600,000 pregnancy-related deaths occurring annually around the world, 80,000 are associated with unsafe abortions.

 

Why have abortions if they are unsafe?  Giving birth in these countries may also be “unsafe”.  The bill doesn’t mention this part.  Do these countries have the most basic of understandings of washing hands and using clean instruments?  The wording here is disturbing.  What does an unsafe abortion in another country have to do with the United States?

 

(7) The Roe v. Wade decision also expanded the opportunities for women to participate equally in society. In 1992, in Planned Parenthood v. Casey (505 U.S. 833), the Supreme Court observed that, `[t]he ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives.’.

 

Whaaaaa????  So, it’s all about living the American Dream at the expense of our children?  We are to stop pregnancy so we can work and “participate equally” in working and paying taxes, hmmmmm?  Again, with the disturbing wording.  It’s very swaying and underhanded.  We women are asked to give up our prime childbearing years so we can become workers in society.  Maybe if we weren’t so busy climbing the career ladder, we wouldn’t be going in for fertility treatments at alarming rates.

 

(8) Even though the Roe v. Wade decision has stood for more than 30 years, there are increasing threats to reproductive health and freedom emerging from all branches and levels of government. In 2006, South Dakota became the first State in more than 15 years to enact a ban on abortion in nearly all circumstances. Supporters of this ban have admitted it is an attempt to directly challenge Roe in the courts. Other States are considering similar bans.

 

Yeah for South Dakota!!

 

(9) Further threatening Roe, the Supreme Court recently upheld the first-ever Federal ban on abortion, which has no exception to protect a woman’s health. The majority decision in Gonzales v. Carhart and Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood Federation of America permits the government to interfere with a woman’s right to choose to terminate a pregnancy and effectively overturns a core tenet of Roe v. Wade by abandoning more than 30 years of protection for women’s health. Dissenting in that case, Justice Ginsburg called the majority’s opinion `alarming,’ and stated that, `[f]or the first time since Roe, the Court blesses a prohibition with no exception safeguarding a woman’s health.’ Further, she said, the Federal ban `and the Court’s defense of it cannot be understood as anything other than an effort to chip away at a right declared again and again by this Court.’.

 

Yep, a baby can be bad for the woman’s health….therefore, maybe she should NOT get pregnant and get sterilized so that no further pregnancies could happen and then she wouldn’t have to murder her unborn baby…just a thought….Besides, how many women get pregnant when they have cancer and stop chemo, have the baby, and then go on to fight and win the battle against cancer???  Should she have aborted the baby?  Should that baby not have been allowed to live so the woman could stay on chemo?  It’s not the baby’s fault, is it? 

 

 

(10) Legal and practical barriers to the full range of reproductive services endanger women’s health and lives. Incremental restrictions on the right to choose imposed by Congress and State legislatures have made access to abortion care extremely difficult, if not impossible, for many women across the country. Currently, 87 percent of the counties in the United States have no abortion provider.

 

Is this supposed to make me sad? 

(11) While abortion should remain safe and legal, women should also have more meaningful access to family planning services that prevent unintended pregnancies, thereby reducing the need for abortion.

 

This is what is really comes down to…if you don’t get pregnant there is no need to murder your child.  So…be responsible, don’t have sex unless you are willing to take up the responsibility of a child.

 

 

(12) To guarantee the protections of Roe v. Wade, Federal legislation is necessary.

(13) Although Congress may not create constitutional rights without amending the Constitution, Congress may, where authorized by its enumerated powers and not prohibited by the Constitution, enact legislation to create and secure statutory rights in areas of legitimate national concern.

(14) Congress has the affirmative power under section 8 of article I of the Constitution and section 5 of the 14th amendment to the Constitution to enact legislation to facilitate interstate commerce and to prevent State interference with interstate commerce, liberty, or equal protection of the laws.

(15) Federal protection of a woman’s right to choose to prevent or terminate a pregnancy falls within this affirmative power of Congress, in part, because–

(A) many women cross State lines to obtain abortions and many more would be forced to do so absent a constitutional right or Federal protection;

 

Maybe these women would think about abstinence….are we just cattle that get pregnant all the time and need to kill our children out of convenience?  The wording here pisses me off, like women will continue to get pregnant and need abortions…no one NEEDS and abortion.  “Forced” is a strong word, don’tcha think?

 

(B) reproductive health clinics are commercial actors that regularly purchase medicine, medical equipment, and other necessary supplies from out-of-State suppliers; and

(C) reproductive health clinics employ doctors, nurses, and other personnel who travel across State lines in order to provide reproductive health services to patients.

 

Cha-ching!!  And those doctors and nurses pay taxes on the money they earn from abortions, don’t they?  I wonder if there is another agenda here. 

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

In this Act:

(1) GOVERNMENT- The term `government’ includes a branch, department, agency, instrumentality, or official (or other individual acting under color of law) of the United States, a State, or a subdivision of a State.

(2) STATE- The term `State’ means each of the States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and each territory or possession of the United States.

(3) VIABILITY- The term `viability’ means that stage of pregnancy when, in the best medical judgment of the attending physician based on the particular medical facts of the case before the physician, there is a reasonable likelihood of the sustained survival of the fetus outside of the woman.

SEC. 4. INTERFERENCE WITH REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH PROHIBITED.

(a) Statement of Policy- It is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child, to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability, or to terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to protect the life or health of the woman.

 

If a baby is able to live outside of the womb, why kill him/her???

 

(b) Prohibition of Interference– A government may not–

(1) deny or interfere with a woman’s right to choose–

(A) to bear a child;

(B) to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability; or

(C) to terminate a pregnancy after viability where termination is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman; or

(2) discriminate against the exercise of the rights set forth in paragraph (1) in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information.

(c) Civil Action- An individual aggrieved by a violation of this section may obtain appropriate relief (including relief against a government) in a civil action.

SEC. 5. SEVERABILITY.

If any provision of this Act, or the application of such provision to any person or circumstance, is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of this Act, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which the provision is held to be unconstitutional, shall not be affected thereby.

SEC. 6. RETROACTIVE EFFECT.

This Act applies to every Federal, State, and local statute, ordinance, regulation, administrative order, decision, policy, practice, or other action enacted, adopted, or implemented before, on, or after the date of enactment of this Act.

 

If this is passed, all states will allow this.

 

Did you know that I was an accidental pregnancy?  So was my husband.  Are our lives not worth protecting because our mothers got pregnant before they wanted to?  Partial birth abortion is disgusting…any abortion is disgusting.  Why do things like this have to happen?  So many families want to adopt and can’t…so many babies want to be born and are killed.  It makes me so sad. 

 

Please sign the petition to keep partial birth abortions illegal. 

 

http://www.fightfoca.com/

 

 

Our wonderful new president has promised to sign this into law….

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf0XIRZSTt8

 

 

This is NOT about women’s health!!  This is about killing our future. 

 

Remember, God IS watching….

 

 

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.  2 Chron 16:9

Christmas: the first of three

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on December 23, 2008

well, we will have 3 Christmas celebrations this year, as we have multiple family members that don’t/won’t get along and so we have to spend time with them all, separatly….oiy

we spent a ton of money on presents this year mostly because hubby worked a LOT of extra night clinic so we could have more cash to spend for gifts and stuff…he is a very generous guy and i think after so many years of being cash strapped from school and stuff, he really is ready to spend and give and have some fun.  he is even taking his father to the cotton bowl game on jan 2, the first ever for either and they are both very excited!  i am happy for him.

so, my point of this post is….why did i mentally add up how much they spent against what we spent?  because i am selfish and a brat.  that pretty much sums it up.  hubby did it too.  we both spent hours shopping, happily, looking for things to buy them.  i went by myself with the two littles at 8:30 am to bed, bath, and beyond to get a few more things, and then to toy r us….they did great, we didn’t fight large crowds and no tears from newt cause he didn’t get a toy…although i did buy him some new play-doh so he could mix them together(his latest addiction). 

i am almost always disapointed by christmas gifts because they are always so thoughtlessly given.  we got a gift card, a gift card, and a gift card.  we didn’t even get to open anything  (i lied, i got to open one present, some placemats from another in-law).  we DO NOT like gift cards.  our niece and nephew didn’t even say thank you for the nintendo ds games, pixos, and magnetix toys we got them….they opened, tossed aside and opened the next….didn’t even really smile or say wow…of course they liked the ds games….so do the parents, by the way….when they play them they are quiet and the parents get free time (that is a separate issue that i have with parents not really parenting). 

hubby and i think said children are brats, spoiled at that.  they have lots of everything and very few limits. 

we need to agree on what we want for our two boys.  how do we do that? 

anyway, that is off topic.   back to the subject at hand.  i did a mental count and we outspent them 3 to 1 and we recieved no joy from it.  because the children went thru the presents so fast, i couldn’t enjoy them looking at them, parents the same.  everyone pretty much opened at the same time, except us cause we didn’t get presents, we got cards, ugh. 

like i said, i’m being selfish.  i wanted to get some joy from watching them…and i got none. 

why do we celebrate this way?  why is christmas so joyless?  why?  hmmmmmm….

now, when we have our own family christmas opening it will be much better cause our 3 yr old will get all the presents and have time to look at them and play with the toys before rushing to the next one. 

when did christmans become so unfun?  i mean, it’s like the more the better.  let’s just open open open and not appreciate or be thankful for what we just recieved.  well, the parents teach them this by buying them to many things.  this is something hubby and i have talked about.  since he is a doc, it will be very easy for us to go overboard, but we will not because we don’t want this for our boys….not at all….i see it all the time…brats everywhere….unappreciative…unthankful….expecting more and more each year….more and more…where does it end?????  does it end???

this is when i say i, again, want to check out from society and move to the country and forget tv because i am t.i.r.e.d. of it all.  tired of seeing the demise of our families on tv and in the church.  tired.  so tired. 

they already have valentines crap out!  can you imagine?  ridiculous….preposterous…..ugh. 

(i have other issues with valentines too, by the way…)

so, here i am asking myself, why did i do a mental tally of money spent?  why do we give presents if there is no joy to be gotten from it? why do we give presents at all?  who started that?  oh, yeah, like most everything  we do at christmas time, it started with the pagans, yeah!  I bet God really likes that, huh? 

i’m starting to question lots of things, and this is good because i will grow from it, but it is also bad because it will likely cause some tension in the family if/when i push the issue….hubby likes to ignore most of these things…i will have to take it slowly with him if i want to change the way our family celebrates (which i do). 

now, tommorow, christmas part 2 with my mom and step dad….yeah (she says with sarcasm in her voice cause her mom humg up on her a week ago when she couldn’t go to mom’s house on mom’s schedule and mom got mad and hung up…)

One World Order

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on November 21, 2008

 

just in case you missed it….

The G20 had a meeting this past weekend about our economy, or lack thereof, and talked about what to do.  Not much was said on the msm, of course.  They plan to meet again in a few months after Obama takes office. 

Why do I make mention of this????  Didja notice the title???   Sound familiar???   Have ya read Revelations lately?

Here is the link to the story http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08321/928422-82.stm

The leaders’ 11-page statement spoke of broad principles, leaving the details to be worked out by lower-level aides before another summit meeting in April, after Barack Obama assumes the presidency. But the gathering in Washington of the nearly two dozen nations — from every region of the world — reflected the new balance of power emerging in the aftermath of a financial crisis that has devastated even well-run economies, a wrenching process that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has dubbed “the birth pangs of this new global order.”  (emphasis mine)

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
1Th 5:2-5

Now, I know the above quote didn’t come from Revelations…although this particular event is there.  A one-world government, a one-world currency, a mark on your hand or head to buy food….

I’m just saying….It will come about very slowly, almost like you won’t really notice what is happening.  You know they already have microchiping for humans, dontcha?  http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=48760 and that story is over two years old…first it starts with out pets, then it’s for our safety, as with having our medical records on the chip so that we can be treated by doctors in an emergency situation….remember, the frog jumps out of boiling water, but he will not jump out of cold water that is slowly brought to a boil. 

Just go to Youtube and look up RFID; you will get a lot of videos and commercials for it…kinda interesting if ya ask me.  (incidentaly you will also get lots of endtimes, 666, and the like, some of which is good, some you should skip)

What’s next?  One world religion…think it can’t happen?  Think again…

“Russia has come up with an initiative to establish a council of religions as a consultative body under UN auspices that will provide support for the Alliance of Civilizations international project, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told an international conference of foreign ministers from several countries in Astana on Friday.”

“This idea is sometimes treated with suspicion. But this approach is wrong. It is not intended to replace mechanisms functioning in the inter-civilization field. It does not infringe on anyone’s prerogatives, and it is not aimed at creating a dominating position in inter-religious dialogue for anybody,” he said.
http://www.istockanalyst.com/article/vi … 18124.html

“We hope that this objective coincidence of common interests will make it possible to form a permanent platform for religious figures’ dialogue,” Lavrov said.

http://www.understandthetimes.org/inthenews/22_owr.shtml

Right now, the water is still pretty cool, but methinks it’s getting a little warmer with stories like these floating around….

I know I am sounding a little wacko..but better to be aware than to be a sheeple (you now sleeping sheep people who believe everything they see on tv is the truth…)

oh, and if you think the news always tells us the truth, check this out.  It’s old, but I’m sure it’s still happening…

ugh…i don’t like any of this.  i’m not too worried though, i know how the story ends 😉

Pregnant “Man” makes me sad…

So, I am watching 20/20, which I hardly ever do anymore…they used to have really great reporting, great stories that were worth watching;  now they seem to do what most tv news/msm seem to do…report on the sensationalism of the week so their sponsors can make money (in this economy?  yeah, right!)  But I digress…

The only story was on the pregnant “man”.  It was an hour long Barbara Walters speacial.  Now, I think she is a good reporter, but somewhat boring as of late…I would like to see better questions…again, I digress…The thing that makes me sad is that, yes…legally he is a man.  Biologically, “he” is a “she” because “he” still has a uterus.  He and his wife are legally married as well, but she is not gay/lesbian (not sure how that works).  They have a 5 month old daughter and are currently expecting again.  They live a “normal” life…the wife even breastfeeds the baby (ya gotta admit, that’s pretty kewl). 

As always with these “news” shows, they have other “experts” they interview for soundbites, and for extra fodder that will support whatever bias they are trying to report.  The one guest was a midwife, who exclusively serves gay/lesbian/transgender couples, helps them concieve and give birth, with her delivering (I guess).  She says that mother and father are “social terms” and…..WHAT!!!!  I’m not sure I remember what she said next because I was bitching at the tv…wait, I can rewind my tv…damn, ya gotta love that DVR! 

oh, wait, someone else said that mother and father were social terms and that as long as one was called mother or father that is all that matters. (oiy, my aching head)

“The face of family is changing.  It has been changing for a long time and each time that something pushes the edge of that family our society at first tends to think it’s wrong wheather that was people having interracial babies, or weather that was single mothers by choice, or that was gay or lesbian families, the same is true for transgender families.”  the midwife said this…

Ok, while I have no problem with interaccial babies (I mean they are beautiful, aren’t they…I remember when jungle fever came out and couldn’t figure out what the big deal was..I mean if they liked each other what was wrong with them dating….way off subject), I do have a problem with single moms who CHOOSE to have a baby without a husband.  We were created to be our husband’s helpmeet, we are the walls, he is the roof, and Jesus is the foundation.  I HAVE to have a problem with gays having famiies because it goes against my core beliefs…that being said…they do make wonderful parents and I don’t begrudge them at all for adopting.  I will not judge them because that is not my job, it’s God’s job. 

Now, God did give us some wonderful technology and fabuously smart people on this planet to make life better for us and to (hopefully) draw us closer to Him.  I cannot imagine His plan for us being that we would turn to our own kind to make families and reproduce in such a way as this couple has chosen.  I mean…she is with another woman…right???  I dunno, it makes me sad…in so many ways. 

Leviticus 18:22 is translated: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”  Remember the story of the Sodom and Gomorrah?  Ya know the one..two Angels came to visit Lot and the men, old and young, came to surround his house and called out to him that he would let the men (Angels) out so they could “know” them.  (Genesis 19)  Ya, that story…remember what happened to those two cities…yeah, ya do, they were destroyed for their sin (terrible sin at that!)

so…we know how Yahweh feels about that…

Thomas Beatie is not the first pregnant “man”. 

“Most transgender men who choose to be pregnant are simply choosing to make a family”  Sorry, they may look like a “normal” family, but they are in direct opposition to God and his commands.  I know…I’m a rotten sinner as well…all I can say is I do my very best everyday to walk the path….they are not walking the path or even trying to walk the path…they are digging up the path and directing it to an alternate destination. 

35-40 have already done this.  More sadness.

“He had the capacity to have a baby.  That didn’t invalidate him being a man”

Ok…huh?  All throughout the Bible and throughout the history of the world, woman have always given birth to children….Methinks this most certainly invalidates him as a man….most certainly…if he has a uterus and had a vaginal birth (he did), then he is a woman in my book…legally is another matter.  I am thinking if I were up in Heaven with God and Jesus, they would agree with me that “he” is a “she”, wouldn’t you???  Just because she looks like a man doesn’t make her a man irregardless of the fact that the government agrees and says she is a man.

I dunno…I have never wanted to be a man, so I don’t know what that feels like.  I do know that we have a choice in this life.  We can either choose to live the way God made us, or we can radically alter what he has made us to be and then live according to our own selfish desires.  I have watched these shows before with transgenders and gays and they say they have always felt this way, they never felt right.  I feel very sorry for them and cannot imagine life like that.  I know many commit suicide, abuse themselves and others, turn to drugs and other things. 

It’s her choice to become a “man” and get married and have kids, but it still makes me sad that as a society we now give this type of story prime time coverage.  This is the way things are made acceptable to us…just like the midwife said…one day this will be “normal”.

That will be a sad day indeed.

well, roo roo is now 6 monts old and i am happy to say he likes rice cereal…i am one of those weirdos who doesn’t give their babies’ any solids until the age of six months…and boy was he ready!!  he grabbed the spoon, ate the cereal and eagerly awaited his next bite… the next night i added in some formula for some sweetness and a little more cereal and he ate all of it and would’ve eaten more if i had it…he then had a full nursing session about an hour or so later…they boy can eat…i expect to see those much missed neck rolls again soon. 

i have decided to try out cloth diapers, and i am going to make them myself!  hah!!  hubby thinks i am nuts and wonders why i don’t just buy some more dipes….it’s a funny thing but i feel like God has been talking to me about some stuff….awhile back, like 3-4 months ago i get this feeling like i just want to check out of society.  i mean like i am tired of watching tv (we mainly watch the news and cartoons).  i dunno really, i got the feeling like life would be so much better if i didn’t have to go out into society and “the world” and all that….i know it sounds like i am outta my tree on this.  i guess i am tired of the way the world is lately.  lots of commercialism.  lots of buy-ism.  lots of “you gotta do/have/buy this to be happy.  i have been longing for a simpler life for several months now…i told hubby that we should buy some land and wouldn’t it be cool to have a small farm and some chickens and some fruit trees?  he said that would be a lot of work.  ugh (as he goes to surf the internet for a “new” suv gas guzzler, lol)  i dunno,  i have been reading lots of bible prophecy stuff and it would be nice to know that i could take care of my family if the “grid” went down, or something like that.  right now all i can do, since i live in suburbia, is start with cloth dipes and wipes….oh, and way less tv…which is driving newt crazy since he looooooves cartoons.  i usually give in because i don’t know what else to do with him, but i know that if i stopped the tv watching he would get better at playing by himself.

the hurricane damaged our roof and fence…just over 3 grand in repairs…how much is our deductable you ask??? 3 grand…oh yeah!  where is this money going to come from???  why hubby is gonna work lots of night clinic so we can fix and repair…great, more time alone with out husband…i love residency and being some 180 thousand in debt…it’s great!…only 8 1/2 more months to go…

my mom-in-law is having part of her colon removed this morn…cancer.  i prayed that it would be gone and that her surgeons would have steady hands (hopefully they won’t leave any tools or towels in her either…to many discovery health specials on that subject!)

made some tortillas with coconut oil last night and they are great.  coconut oil is a fabulous substitute for shortening.  it is naturally solid at room temperature, which means in here in texas it is mostly semi-solid.  i works great in biscuits too.  i can report no coconut flavor, at least in the louanna brand from wally-world.  i have been using an organic kind on my face at night as moisturizer for ummmm….10 months or longer and it is great and cheap.  no breakouts from having pure oil on my face and it absorbs rather quickly too.  it’s pretty cheap considering an 8$ jar has lasted me this long and i have at least another 6 months of oil to go.  i have been using way less make-up too.  i dunno if this is part of that “tired of consuming” attitude i have had for awhile now, but it is so nice to not worry about it.  i do wear some for church, and occasionally for dr’s apt’s and such…but for the most part i have naked face. 

sooo, with that, i am gonna be printing lots and lots today to get ready for stuff…what that is i dunno yet.  i will post something on that later. 

until then, take care, and keep some cash on hand! (and some food for that matter)
