Who is this idiot (I was taught to respect my priest while I was growing up but this is too much) Father Michael Pfleger?
I am shocked that this priest stood up there imitating Hilary Clinton and spewing hate. Ok, I am not SHOCKED (nothing shocks me anymore), I am disturbed by it.
What happened to Catholic decency. How can this man preach the word of God and spew hatred at his fellow man/women or what have you?
Never have I been a Hilary fan but this is just disgusting.
His words can be found here
The video can be found here
A well written post regarding this story can be found here
Read, watch, educate yourself.
Also, I am appealed at the people who are responding this the video on You Tube with such hatred, nasty, disgusting words. This is the reason this country will suffer during the election. This is the reason we will not see CHANGE during this election. I can only hope that the next generation teaches their children acceptance, acknowledgement, respect, and dignity. All are very much absent from what I have been reading in the political forums online.

I am still reeling from last night's 2 hour season finale.
So many twists, storyline reveals, and more mystery.
My dad and I called each other during commercials to dish and my sister and I spent an hour summarizing what we got from the finale and what we think will happen next season.
This season, flash backs have shown us that Jack, Kate, baby Aaron, Syid, Sun and Hurley all escape the island but now we know that more escaped and 1 in particular sacrificed his ride to freedom to save Kate, Jack and Hurley.
If you TIVO'd and haven't watched it yet, I suggest you watch and then re-watch. There was so much going on.
Sawyer's leap before whispering to Kate (btw..I had just told my dad that Sawyer was on the helicopter but I wasn't sure why he got off "maybe to let Sun on.") still makes me weep. Whhhhhhyyyyyy Sawyer. Whhhhhyyyyy.
I would love to know what he whispered to her. If we are following along we know that she had to do something for him when she got back but what?
When she asked "why are you telling me this?" I knew he was jumping. Grrrr...and on another note what happened to his shirt? Not that I oppose a wet, shirtless Josh Holloway but did it get eaten by a shark? He didn't lose it while jumping in because he had it on when he came up. Anyway no biggie, wet, topless Sawyer will do any day...I digress.
Here are my questions:
So why did Jin not dive into the water when he knew the boat was about to explode?
Why did we not see a helicopter or a boat on the water when Juliet and Sawyer looked over to the now smoking freighter?
How did Locke become to be the dead guy? What made him come back if he was the "guy" in charge. Is it even Locke??????
Other than Kate being a "piece of ass" what is her role on the island?
Why is Syid working for Ben?
WHO ARE THE HIDING THE ISLAND FROM?
Why did Desmond, red haired girl, and paranormal guy chose not to go back?
Why are they lying? I still don't get it. John asked Jack to lie but Jack never listened to him before so why now? Why trust him and Ben now after everything else? Why trust them with the lives of people who WERE trying to get to that freighter? Who made them God?
Why were there so many shots of Penny holding baby Aaron?
Why did Syid take Hurley to someplace "safe"?
Why does Jack and Claire's father always seem to be around? He understand himself showing himself to Jack and Claire but why was the there before the bomb went off? Why did he tell Michael, "you can go now!" Kabloom!!
My OMG moments:
Sawyer jumping out of the helicopter into the ocean to save his buds.
Claire's haunting visit in Kate's dream "Don't you dare bring him back!"
The phone call Kate receives during her dream sequence where the garbled message if listened to backwards says, "the island needs you. Go back before it is too late."
Locke being in the casket. How and why did he come back?
Sun screaming in the helicopter after watching the freighter blow up with Jin on it.
Sun (all decked out like a secret agent) growing a huge set of balls while on the island and sticking it to her father and Whidmore.
Syid working for Ben (just killing a la vigilante style).
God damn Walt got big.
The Octagon Global Recruitment commercial that aired during the finale. WTF?
Ben making the island disappear (or travel 10 months into the future which is the time travel Ben does during his Casimir Effect that brings him to the Sahara Desert)after walking through some blown out hole and entering a frozen, snow covered what the hell was it room. What the hell did he steer? Was that the wheel of a ship? When he walked through that rabbit hole and entered the frozen area, I felt like I was watching Logan's Run. (anyone ever see that movie?)
So, what we know for next season:
Sawyer, Juliet, and a bunch of others are on the island.
Jack has to get the rest of them to go back to the island.
Ok, now I am off to watch the alternate endings. Ta
Oh as for the kiss....whatever. It was semi hot. Where was the tongue damn it?

I know I voted once before on Idol but never for the overall winner. It was so long ago that I don't even remember who it was for. Oh blahh...anyway, tonight..I just had to vote.
Mostly I voted because I felt that David Archuleta is a shoe in based on Simon's feedback after all three songs. I think Archie is great but he was never my pick for the WIN. I thought he was in the zone tonight and both guys were awesome.
The reason I voted tonight is because if Archuleta wins over DC, I couldn't be upset about it unless I actually voted.
Kind of like how I feel people who didn't vote in the last presidential election have no right bitching about how much they hate our president, You had opportunity to make a difference, as little as it would be, but you chose not to.
I have Barry Manilow's "One Voice" playing in my head right now along with the Star Spangle Banner.
Ok, I digress.
Congratulations David, whichever one of you win. I would love it to be my David.
For my son's 5th birthday I mentioned Wii to my husband. I thought it would be something that we could build on and all enjoy over time.
Playing the hero, he surprised us with it and we have been enjoying it ever since.
The game was bundled with Wii Sports, a 5 game disk that includes bowling, tennis, golf, boxing and baseball and we got him Super Mario - Super Galaxy.
He also got 2 other games from my sister-in-law, Mario Kart and Go Diego Safari Rescue.
We, as a couple are having so much fun! We used to spend a lot of time together before kids, playing games on XBox, listening to music, talking, hanging out together, etc. Then kids come and everything is about them. We have different interests and different directions right now. He started his own company and works the hours of well the president and I am a full time mom also with few hours to burn. We enjoy different TV shows on our down time and rarely spend alone time together which is really bad for a marriage.
Hello, not saying that Wii has saved THIS marriage, we were hardly leaning toward that road but we are enjoying more time together. Our competitive side comes out and we pat each other on the ass while we strut around the room with our Wii remotes poised and ready to kick some spousal ass.
So, Wii thank you. Thank you for allowing me to try to kick my husband's ass at bowling or golf and legally knock my son out with a few rounds of boxing all while occasionally kissing the palm of my hand with a little game bop vibration through the wiimote.

There are interpersonal tensions among the Oceanic 6. Jack initially won't visit Kate at her home, not wanting to see Aaron. ("Eggtown") He eventually relents, and they become engaged, but after he begins to abuse medication and she performs a chore that Sawyer apparently asked her to do before she left the island, their relationship deteriorates. ("Something Nice Back Home"), ("Through the Looking Glass").
After Hurley was re-admitted to Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, Jack visited him and questioned him to make sure his apparently deteriorated mental health status wouldn't diminish his adherence to the story. ("The Beginning of the End") Matthew Abaddon suspected the story to be false, and questioned Hurley about it. ("The Beginning of the End")

I have no idea but I was wondering...why does she do that thing with her mouth when she sings now. I am not a huge fan of her type of music but always liked her and especially her with Nick Lachey.
Watching some of her older video's she didn't do this over mouthing thing. Did someone tell her that was hot or something because I am not sure when it changed. She is a good singer and can definitely hold some notes but her weird mouth movements and expressions are so weird. Just saying. She is trying to do Jewel or something but ummm...Jewel is Jewel and Jessica is well Jessica. Get it?
You be the judge!

Love Me Tender was very sweet and he sounds like a seasoned pro.
David Castro sang I Shot The Sheriff and Mr. Mr. Tambourine Man.
I liked the vibe on I Shot The Sheriff and he forgot the words on Mr. Tambourine Man. WTF dude?
Syesha sang Proud Mary and I See A Change Coming On.
Proud Mary wasn’t great for me but I kept comparing it to Tina and Beyonce’
As for ISACCO, it was just ok and I couldn’t wait for it to end.
David Cook sang Hungry Like The Wolf and Bubba O’Reily.
On Hungry (I was never a Duran Duran fan so don’t take my word for it), it was just ok and well boring but that was what I thought of the original too.
As for Bubba, well it was friggin awesome. Hello!!! I loved it!
When the project was first announced, Vin Diesel was going to star as Agent 47. Despite Timothy Olyphant taking over, Diesel is still credited as executive producer.

Like, let's hear, Syesha do some Missy, Get Ur Freak On.
How about David Cook singing some Creed. You know he wants to.
David Archeleta could do some Beyonce, or wouldn't it be funny to hear him sing Your body is a Wonderland by John Meyer? He would be so embaressed.
Bored, bored, bored.
Paula's flub, big friggin deal. I know everyone and their brother is talking about it. She sounded crazy but really whatever, why are we surprised? She was confused and it is a live show, people make mistakes, let's move on.
Brooke White was eliminated
How long was her little montage? Looooonnnnggg right?
Waahhhhh I was crying too at the end of this. Poor wee, little Brooke.
