Indian forces end Mumbai siege

While it was happening I prayed for those involved, the victims and the forces fighting the terrorists. Now that it’s over I pray for the families of the victims and I pray for those injured. Now it’s going to be finger pointing and a lot of posturing. What exactly am I talking about? The attack on the Taj Mahal hotel in India. Here are a few links for a rundown of the events.

Here’s A Worthwhile Cause.

November 27, 2008

Caitlyn Arnold an eleven year old girl from Eastland has started a fund raising drive for the leukemia research department at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston Texas. She is asking for every Texan to send her one penny. When was the last time anyone asked you for ONLY ONE penny?

There are around 20,851,820 people in Texas. If half of the people in Texas sent me one penny, we could give MD Anderson $104,259.10.

I have spoken with M.D. Anderson. They are aware of my fundraiser. I have started collecting from my family and friends. I have written down all their names in a spiral notebook to send with the final amount so they can see all the people that are willing to help their cause. This is what I am asking from the wonderful people of Texas. Please send me one penny (more if you would like) in an envelope with your first and last name to the following address: Fundraiser, 209 S. Virginia Ave. , Eastland, Texas 76448

Taxpayer Field

November 25, 2008

Citigroup and AIG still plan to go ahead with sponsorships of sports teams despite asking for bailout funds.

As part of its federal life preserver, Citigroup will stop dividend payments for the next three years and curb certain executive compensation.

Ok Good start so far, doing something to stop the bleeding, good, good.

But the banking giant and other recipients of taxpayer largess — AIG, the insurance behemoth, for instance — will continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to put their corporate logos on sports stadiums and events, ABC News says.

Now see, here’s where you lose my support, if you “need” money to keep yourself afloat you don’t go spending money “willy nilly”. Ok Congress…how does the Citigroup and AIG bailout smell now? Kinda fishy if you ask me.


Bye Alan Colmes.

November 24, 2008

It’s been reported here, that Alan Colmes is leaving the Hannity and Colmes show on the Fox News Channel after 12 years.
I can honestly say I will not miss seeing him on the show, I know that he contributed to the shows success but I just did not care for him.
Now can we petition Kirsten Powers to be the new co-host? She’s a liberal, but at least she one of the few intelligent ones.


Do You Guys Hear Something?

November 22, 2008

Hotair covers a lot of these stories about terrorists meeting their maker at the hands of our finest. I can only imagine the feeling the drone operator has when one of their missiles strikes it’s target.
All I can say is, thank you President Bush and the United States Military.


GM giving up luxury jets, almost.

November 21, 2008

It’s hard for me to feel sorry for corporations begging Congress for money when you have CEOs jetting to Washington on private jets. Well after the grilling they received on the hill GM announced it was dropping the lease on some of its jets.

Foxnews has the complete story, but here is a little tease.

Two days later, on Friday, General Motors Corp. announced that it is terminating the leases on two of its five private jets in an effort “to cut costs.”

Well, they have to keep some of the jets for emergencies don’t you know. I love the people claiming that we must save the auto industry because of all the people that will lose their pensions and health benefits. It’s hard to feel sorry for them when you don’t get either at your job. Hey I got an idea, how about the unions compromise on some ways to cut costs and make some cars that people will actually buy.
