Under the Leather and Behind the Shades

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Under the leather and behind the shades stands a biker. We ride for the sense of freedom it gives us. The encouragement to take the road less traveled in the chance that we may encounter something new. We ride for the friendships we make along the way, as well as, the solitude of the open road. We don’t really care what you ride, just that you do.

Under the leather and behind the shades is a beating heart. A heart filled with compassion that on any given day will be riding for those in need. Ask one of us for help, but don’t be surprised when all of us show up.

Under the leather and behind the shades stands a proud American. We are as diverse a group of people that you could possibly assemble. We are men, women, tradesmen, doctors, lawyers, retirees, military, civilian and on and on and on. We stand silently with reverence and one voice that, in the silence, can be overwhelming.

Under the leather and behind the shades stands an invited guest to the funeral of a soldier that we most likely have never met. We hold the flag of our nation as a tribute to the greatest sacrifice anyone can make. Out of respect for the fallen, we travel to stand firm for a family, a community and a nation to lean on.

Under the leather and behind the shades stands a biker with sons, daughters, brothers and sisters of our own. Beneath the rough exterior we tremble and weep at your loss. You may not see that, for we are there to support you. That’s why we stand so silently under the leather and behind the shades.

The time has come for Gawfer to add his name to the roster of these noble individuals. I have a bike, and will get envolved with the local chapter, but a bike is not necessary to join and show support. I'd encourage each of my readers to search their hearts, and if you support these men and women, then perhaps you'll add your name to the roster to be counted as well.

Remember, by Greg Laurie

Thursday, November 23, 2006


"Remember the Lord, though you are in a far-off land. . . . "

— Jeremiah 51:50

In the book of Genesis, we are told that after God brought judgment upon the world through the Flood, He remembered Noah (see 8:1). Though He had dealt harshly with the world and rebellious humanity, God remembered Noah. Later we read that when Noah and his family landed on terra firma and stepped off the ark, Noah brought an offering to the Lord. So not only did God remember Noah, but Noah also remembered God.

That is something we need to do: remember God. We need to remember all that He has done on our behalf. The Bible tells us to remember our Creator in the days of our youth (see Ecclesiastes 12:1). Not only are we told to remember the Lord when we are young, but we are also told to remember Him when we are in a distant land. Jeremiah delivered those words to Israel, reminding them that when they were in bondage and surrounded by a pagan culture, they were not to forget the Lord (see Jeremiah 51:50).

In many ways, we are living in a pagan culture today. We are living in a culture that has no interest in God, for the most part. People are interested in spirituality. People are interested in religion. But are they really interested in the true God?

As Christians, we are to remember the Lord in a distant land. We are to remember that God has a plan and purpose for our lives. Why? Because He is constantly thinking about us. He is aware of us. He never forgets us. Therefore on this day set aside for giving thanks, let's be sure to remember Him.

Army Spc. Donald L. Wheeler

22 years old from Concord, Michigan
A Company, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division
October 13, 2003

Spc. Donald Laverne Wheeler was affectionately known as "DJ" to his
family, which included three sisters and eight brothers. In the military,
he picked up the nickname "Sunshine." "They called him Sunshine at Fort
Hood in Texas because he was so tall he stood out from everyone else
and he was always smiling," said one of his sisters, Andrea Barrett.
Wheeler died on October 13, 2003 in an attack in Tikrit. His mother, Mary
Cay Wheeler, said he decided to enlist after the Sept. 11 attacks. "He
loved the Army but at the same time he missed his family", she said.
They had a photo of Wheeler blown up to near life size and brought it to
his sister's wedding reception because he couldn't attend. "I shall
always remember him, a big kid who gave everything he had on that dusty
day," said Lt. Jason Price at a memorial service in Tikrit. "It's
difficult to say goodbye."

These brave men and women have given their lives so that others may
enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call
them Hero.

Security accused of Assault

Daily Bruin
“It is a real mistake to treat a Taser as some benign thing that painlessly brings people under control,” said Peter Eliasberg, managing attorney at the ACLU of Southern California.

“The Taser can be incredibly violent and result in death,” Eliasberg said.
According to an ACLU report, 148 people in the United States and Canada have died as a result of the use of Tasers since 1999.

During the altercation between Tabatabainejad and the officers, bystanders can be heard in the video repeatedly asking the officers to stop and requesting their names and identification numbers. The video showed one officer responding to a student by threatening that the student would “get Tased too.” At this point, the officer was still holding a Taser.

Such a threat of the use of force by a law enforcement officer in response to a request for a badge number is an “illegal assault,” Eliasberg said.

“It is absolutely illegal to threaten anyone who asks for a badge [number],” that’s assault,” he said.

OK, so after watching the video, this is my assesment.

An individual of Middle Eastern descent was sitting at a work station in the computer lounge at UCLA when for some unknown reason he attracts the attention of the campus security. When asked for his student ID, he becomes defiant and refuses to cooperate with the security officer. The officer then calls for additional assistance, and attempts to remove the individual from the building. The individual becomes increasingly combative and as a result is tased. Still unwilling to comply with campus security's request to stand up and exit the building, he is tased again repeatedly. Students who were also in the building become agitated begin to interfere with the officers during arrest and are told to back up or will also be tased and arrested. Seeing the quantity of students vs. the quantity of security officers, I'd say it was an uneasy position for the officers given the immediate circumstances, and their actions were completely justified.

State Constitutions Posted by Anna

This is one of the most interesting posts I've read in a while as it apparently defies the Liberal's idea of 'Seperation of Church and State'. Clearly, not only the forefathers of the this country, but the founders of each individual state recognized the authority of God, and paid tribute to Him in their preambles.

Anna has published some very important information that I think is crucial to the existence of our country, the greatest nation on God's Green Earth.

State Constitutions
November 19th, 2006 at 2:46 am (History)

My Dad often sends me very interesting emails. This particular one shows that not only did our Founding Fathers refer to God and Creator in our Declaration of Independence and Preamble to the Constitution, but each state in their individual state constitutions did as well. Even Alaska and Hawaii, neither of which become states until January and August 1959 (respectively), have God and/or Divine Guidance in the preamble to their state constitutions. Here are just a few, but you can look up your own state’s constitution and see that they also referred to God, Creator, the Almighty God and so on.

Arizona: We, the people of the State of Arizona, grateful to Almighty God for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution.

California: We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, in order to secure and perpetuate its blessings, do establish this Constitution.

Florida: We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits, perfect our government, insure domestic tranquility, maintain public order, and guarantee equal civil and political rights to all, do ordain and establish this constitution.

New York: We, the people of the State of New York, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, in order to secure its blessings, do establish this constitution.

Ohio: We, the people of the State of Ohio, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, to secure its blessings and promote our common welfare, do establish this Constitution.

It’s interesting that some have very unique references to a higher power. For example, Colorado refers to “Supreme Ruler of the Universe,” while Maine refers to “the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe.” It’s also interesting that while looking up this information I found that there are states wishing to amend their state constitution’s preamble. I know that Arizona is one such state. I encourage you to look up your state constitution with its preamble. You may find that the “PC Police” or ACLU have been working to get that reference to God removed.

(Information originally received in an email, though verified by looking up the individual state constitutions online whether through historical documentation and/or state websites.)

Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Commander Yahya Safavi on Iranian TV: 'The Americans Have Many Weaknesses'; 'We Have Planned Our Strategy Precisely on the Basis of Their Strengths and Weaknesses'; U.S. Forces in Iraq 'Are Very Cowardly'; 'We Never Reveal All Our Cards to the Enemy'

In an interview on Iran's Channel 2, that aired on November 12, 2006, Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps commander Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi stated that Iran had based its strategy on the U.S. military's strengths and weaknesses. He discussed the capabilities of the Shahab missiles and the weaknesses and the cowardice of the U.S. military, claiming among other things that the Iranian military could disrupt enemy satellite systems

The following are excerpts from the interview


"We Have Planned Our Strategy Precisely on the Basis of Their [The U.S. Military's] Strengths and Weaknesses"

General Yahya Rahim Safavi: "The Shahab 3 missiles, which were fired with a cluster warhead, deviated a few meters [from the target]. Considering the extent of the explosion, a few meters is...

Interviewer: "Is this within the norms of missile operations?"

General Yahya Rahim Safavi: "Naturally, a 20-30 meter [deviation] is acceptable, because the force of the explosion and the radius of the shockwaves exceed 20 or 30 meters.

We are currently in a very strategic location, but if the Pelosis and Murthas of our government have their way, we'll be 'far, far away' in no time and then will struggle to deal with these idiots next.

Rosie O'Donnell: 'Don't Fear the Terrorists, They're Mothers and Fathers'

I found this post over at BeastMedia, and felt it warranted reposting. This woman is becoming another Cindy Sheehan, only she is a verbal bully who uses her rotund size to intimidate.

No one told me Rosie was doing comedy these days...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Rosie O'Donnell: "Faith or fear, that's your choice. You can walk through life believing in the goodness of the world, or walk through life afraid of anyone who thinks different than you and trying to convert them to your way of thinking. And I think that this country–"

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: "Well, I'm a person of faith, so I, but I also believe–"

O'Donnell: "Well, then, get away from the fear. Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers."

I guess Rosie has never heard of Palestinian Mother of the Year and Hamas politician Um Nidal, who is also known as Mariam Farahat. Um became famous when she was filmed bidding her 17-year-old son Mohammed farewell to die through a terrorist attack. She ordered him "not to return except as a shahid [martyr for Allah]." Ordering one son to die was not enough, thus far, Um sent three of her sons to die and murder others.

When a mother orders three of her children to kill themselves and to kill innocent civilians with them, what better candidate could you have to help run the new Palestinian government?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Today, Mariam Farahat, is part of the Palestinian parliament and she has this to say to mothers everwhere:

Umm Nidal on raising children:

Ever since [my son] Muhammad was a little boy, he carried and used a weapon. This was natural for him. It is not that he all of a sudden took up a weapon, carried out operations, and so on. This was a gradual process for him, ever since he was little.

Umm Nidal on sibling rivalry:

There was an operation that was about to take place - the same operation that he eventually carried out. [My eldest son] Nidal, may he rest in peace, said to me: "I want to give this operation to my brother Muhammad." He insisted on this because he loved Muhammad very much. He chose him. He chose him for the operation over the rest of the guys. Some of the guys were even a little mad at him for not considering them for this operation, but he said: "By Allah, this operation leads to Paradise, and I will choose nobody but my brother."

Umm Nidal on what boys want:

Allah be praised, we have thousands of young men. They all yearn for martyrdom for the sake of Allah. Some of them even cry when they do not get the chance to commit martyrdom. As long as we have such determination, we will prevail, Allah willing.

Umm Nidal on the meaning of life:

We believe in the faith charted for us by Allah, and believe that if someone is destined to die, he will die, even if he hides in a crate - but why shouldn't we take the initiative and die as martyrs? There is an abyss between one form of dying and the other. So why shouldn't we choose martyrdom? Allah has chosen us, from among all people, and has bestowed upon us the honor of Jihad in the front line of Palestine. So it is all the more fitting for us to initiate martyrdom, before death reaches us while we sit at home.

and finally, Umm Nidal's message to all the Muslim mothers, who want to raise their sons, and hope they will attain worldly things, university degrees, luxurious palaces, and fancy cars:

A Muslim mother should raise her children on prayer, good deeds, and, of course, on Jihad, which is one of the duties on which we should raise our children.

Jihad in Islam is a duty that one cannot forego. It is like any other religious duty. If we understand the true meaning of Islam, the notion of Jihad will be included among the Islamic duties, and in Palestine - an individual duty. If we are remiss in this duty, we sin.

Now, that might make you feel all warm and mushy inside Rosie, but mothers like Um Nidal scare the crap out of me.

Is Rosie listening to Condi Rice? Now that's really scary

Wednesday Hero!

Maj. Guy Barattieri
Maj. Guy
36 years old from Seattle, Washington
National Guard's Alpha Co., 1st Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group
October 4, 2006

Everyone called him "Bear." In fact, many of his colleagues at FOX News
learned Guy Barattieri's full name for the first time when they read
his obituary.

To FOX News journalists, Bear was a protector. He worked with FOX as a
guard in their Baghdad bureau, leading their large security team when
that office was attacked with a cement mixer full of explosives last

A 1992 West Point graduate, Barattieri first served in the regular Army
infantry before becoming a Green Beret and serving with the 1st Special
Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Lewis.

After leaving active duty as a captain, Barattieri became a
citizen-soldier in August 2000 with the state National Guard's Special Forces
outfit in Buckley, which is east of Tacoma. From August 2001 to 2004, he
was a Seattle police officer in civilian life, and he was elected
president of his police academy class.

Barattieri went on active duty in 2002 as a Special Forces detachment
commander in Kuwait. In March 2003, his team led the 101st Infantry
Division on its march to Baghdad. Barattieri received a Bronze Star and
Combat Infantryman's badge for his role.

He was killed when a roadside bomb while traveling to a power plant
near Baghdad. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

These brave men and women have given their lives so that others may
enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call
them Hero.

Ban the Pledge of Allegiance?

Students at Calif college ban Pledge of Allegiance

By Dan Whitcomb Fri Nov 10, 1:53 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Student leaders at a California college have touched off a furor by banning the Pledge of Allegiance at their meetings, saying they see no reason to publicly swear loyalty to God and the U.S. government.

The move by Orange Coast College student trustees, the latest clash over patriotism and religion in American schools, has infuriated some of their classmates -- prompting one young woman to loudly recite the pledge in front of the board on Wednesday night in defiance of the rule.

"America is the one thing I'm passionate about and I can't let them take that away from me," 18-year-old political science major Christine Zoldos told Reuters.

"The fact that they have enough power to ban one of the most valued traditions in America is just horrible," Zoldos said, adding she would attend every board meeting to salute the flag.

The move was led by three recently elected student trustees, who ran for office wearing revolutionary-style berets and said they do not believe in publicly swearing an oath to the American flag and government at their school. One student trustee voted against the measure, which does not apply to other student groups or campus meetings.

The ban follows a 2002 ruling by a federal appeals court in San Francisco that said forcing school children to recite the pledge was unconstitutional because of the phrase "under God." The

U.S. Supreme Court struck down the ruling on procedural grounds but left the door open for another challenge.

"That ('under God') part is sort of offensive to me," student trustee Jason Ball, who proposed the ban, told Reuters. "I am an atheist and a socialist, and if you know your history, you know that 'under God' was inserted during the McCarthy era and was directly designed to destroy my ideology."

Ball said the ban largely came about because the trustees didn't want to publicly vow loyalty to the American government before their meetings. "Loyalty ought to be something the government earns through performance, not through reciting a pledge," he said.

Martha Parham, a spokeswoman for the Coast Community College District, said her office had no standing on the student board and took no position on the flag salute ban.

"If their personal belief is that they don't want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, the district certainly isn't going to dictate what they do," she said.

More than 28,000 students attend the community college, located in conservative Orange County, California, south of Los Angeles.

Well, doesn't this just warm the cockels of your heart... like a bad burrito!
Riddle me this: Aren't Community Colleges still underwritten by the State? and if so, shouldn't they fall under the jurisdiction of the Public school system?

These schmucks are getting their core classes at a very discounted rate on your dollar, and then spitting in the face of the very country that affords them the very opportunity. A typical behavior pattern for the next generation of Flaming Liberals.

A pal of mine was musing this young fella needs a little love, perhaps in the form of a 'Blanket Party' or 'wall to wall counseling. I'd tend to agree.

George Carlin's new rules for 2007

RATED PG-13 for inuendos...

New Rule: No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for
weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes, graduations, and releases from
jail. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you
isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.

New Rule: Stop giving me that pop-up ad for! There's a reason
you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't particularly like
them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing
these days: mowing my lawn.

New Rule: Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde
teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these

New Rule: If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you're
gay. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you're a
grown man, they're pictures of men.

New Rule: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about
your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

New Rule: There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of
this crap at the supermarket - water, but without that watery taste.
Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water?
Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.

New Rule: Stop f***ing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned
pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the
bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be
in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the Social Security

New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the a**hole.
If you walk into a Starbucks an d order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low
fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light
ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge a**hole.

New Rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card,
entering my PIN number, pressing "Enter," verifying the amount, deciding,
no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "Enter" again, the kid who is
supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy.

New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make
you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to
"beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were
praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.

New Rule: Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly
sins. ESPN recently televised the US Open of Competitive Eating, because
watching those athletes at the poker table w as just too damned exciting.
What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. They're already doing that. It's
called "The Howard Stern Show."

New Rule: I don't need a bigger mega M&M. If I'm extra hungry for M&Ms, I'll
go nuts and eat two

New Rule: and this one is long overdue: No more bathroom attendants. After
I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex
with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be there, or just
some freak with a fetish. I don't want to be on your webcam, dude. I just
want to wash my hands.

New Rule: When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months
"27 Months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese.
And I didn't really care in the first place.

Warning: not for the faint of heart

This is an email I received today from a close relative, and thought it would bare publishing:

When is the average American of today going to realize that this Country was based on being a republic, not a democracy.... small wonder that we are sinking faster than a swamped boat. Don't believe me. Re-acquaint yourselves with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for the United States of America.

How Long Do We Have?
About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new Constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor At the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

• 1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
• 2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
• 3. From courage to liberty;
• 4. From liberty to abundance;
• 5. From abundance to complacency;
• 6. From complacency to apathy;
• 7. From apathy to dependence;
• 8. From dependence back into bondage;

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:

1. Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;

2. Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000;

3. States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29;

4. Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1;

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country.

Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase. If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals and they vote, then goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Admittedly, no citations were provided for these stated facts; however, it appears to me the philosophy presented here will stand to reason.

Yet Another Logical Solution

An email from a friend:

Two Proposals Worth Considering...

New Gas Plan... Pres. Bush wants us to cut the amount of gas we use. The best way to stop using so much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants! That would be 11 million less people using our gas. The price of gas would have to come down as a result.

New Immigration Plan... Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the border. When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Iraq. Tell him if he wants to come to America, then he must serve a tour in the military. Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it. After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country. He will also be registered to be taxed and can become a legal patriot in the process. This option might deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Iraq, and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves.

If they refuse to serve, ship them to Iraq anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo. Problem solved.

For nothing but self love, we frequently make things much more complicated than they really are.

I am reminded of a story of a truck driver who attempted to drive under an over pass that was 2" too short for his trailer. The truck became so lodged under the overpass, that city engineers were called to consider removing a section of the overpass to free the truck. As they discussed the situation, a little boy on a bike who had been watching the whole fiascle, approached the city engineer and asked "why don't you just let the air out of the tires of the trailer?"

Sometimes, solutions can be as obvious as the nose on our face, yet screaming liberals and politicians look for every opportunity to inflate their self worth. If people want to come to this country by other than lawful means, why not direct them to boot camp, English school and a tour in Iraq or wherever the freedom they seek is being challenged?

U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Primer

New York Times???

November 3, 2006
Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

Last night, the government shut down the Web site after The New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts and arms-control officials. A spokesman for the director of national intelligence said access to the site had been suspended “pending a review to ensure its content is appropriate for public viewing.”

So, once again, we jump into the 'way back machine' and see that the fear of "WMD's" was very accurate. Seems to me, after 9/11/2001, one of the biggest fears we had was a 'dirty bomb' being detonated in a metropolitan area. Hmmmm, I wonder where the nuclear fuel would have come from. Perhaps someone with the ability to refine Plutonium, who had a strong hatred for the President as well as the United States of America, and enough money (golden toilets) to underwrite such an attempt?

Seems to me the decision to get after Iraq and S.H. wasn't quit the Fubar as some have purported.

Stay the course or cut and run. In the late 70's here in Mexifornia (formerly California) there sat super freeway overpasses that went to nowhere. Seems the democratic Governor (Jerry Brown) decided that it was best to abandon a huge infrastructure enhancement project for the sake of $$$. His solution was 'cut and run' also. Fortunately for Mexifornia (formerly California), Republican Pete Wilson followed up and finished the job.

Let's clean up the mess we made in Iraq, and move on to the next threat against America and her Allies.

Shirley Phelps Roper on 10/14/06 Tyra Banks Show Part 3

I typically don't get to watch daytime TV, so I miss 'all the good shows'. So when one like this makes youTube, I'm all over it.

I must say, I was very impressed with Tyra's questions to the Phelps kids, bringing into light just a little decency that hasn't quite been snuffed out... yet
