Just Another Adoption Book

The adoption books that come out really make me laugh. this is a new one:

Adoption: Unchartered Waters by David Kirschner, Ph.D. is a bit like the Kinsey report in the sense that the people they interviewed were already troubled (in the case of Kinsey - sexual deviants and perverts - in my opinion). Some data sources included the diaries of convicted child molesters, 25% were, or had been, prison inmates, and 5% were male prostitutes. Really not a good mix of people to get accurate results...

This adoption data gathered is also like walking into a Union hall and taking a poll about which presidential candidate would win, or going into a stage production of La Cage Aux Folles and use the actors to poll how many gay men there are in the US....
It's just NOT a good section of the population to do a true study.

David Kirschner is a psychologist and psychoanalyst with a private practice. He founded and directed for 25 years, a community mental health clinic and used all his "data" from patients for this book about how adoptees are not coping well.....that makes me laugh.

The sad thing is Dr. Kirschner is nationally and internationally recognized for his clinical & forensic work on adoption issues, and for his concept of an Adopted Child Syndrome. (what is the percentage of adoptees that have that? As far as he is concerned - most so).

God bless him for trying to open records....and I'm sure he has helped the small number of patients who actually do have a problem with their adoptions....but this guy THINKS he knows adoptees like people that work in nursing homes THINK they know old people. They don't see the other side of it....they are very bias one way....because of their own limited experience. People that come to see this guy already have trouble.....he never talks to the millions of happy adoptees out there....
I hope there was more for happy adult adoptees to write about - but they wouldn't sell....and who has time to write books about a happy normal life when you are busy living it???

*******Adoption REMINDER Post*********

I honestly forget that our sweet pea is not biologically from our DNA - she is SO much like DH it's absurd. She is over two and smart as a whip. She can say her ABCs better than I did at 4 or 5. I used to say m-n-n-o-p (could never get that right). She counts objects up to 15 all the time and points out all Os, Ts, S's and B's everywhere we go. The stop signs are a constant form of entertainment in the at every block! She tells me things are "perfect", that she "wants everything" and the best is she tells me to "spit it out" when I steal a grape or cracker from her plate. She says "please" and "thank you" and "I'm sorry" at every chance and very rarely throws a little temper tantrum....and that is usually about us being too tired to keep playing ball....going home or going to bed. She will be an athlete - of that there is no doubt.

She is her father - loves pickles and chips, will play soccer until she falls over, snores, can't sit still, and that's just the tip of the ice berg - I think they even have the same sense of humor - I have tried to squelch that ....with no avail.

I cannot remember a day without her and don't ever want her to grow up and get married because it means she would move away.....we love her so immensely, so fully and so deeply. I tell her all the time - You make me happy.... and she puts her little hand on my face and kisses my cheek. Then we say together "i love you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" while jumping and pumping out arms up and down........"much".

First Lady???!

When Obama chose to ask Michelle LaVaughn Robinson to marry him it must have been love because no one with only political aspirations would/should have considered it.

When I first heard about Michelle's Princeton Thesis being anti-white, racist, etc. I thought it was a fabrication. As Republican as I am, I realize that some of that will happen and you cannot believe everything that comes over on your e-mails. S o, I checked it out. Snopes didn't deny if was true but at the time they came out with information, the university had "temporarily withdrawn" the thesis from Princeton's library until after this year's presidential election in November (hmmm, interesting). Since there have been a number of sources who have uncovered the thesis and it's is allarming and I'm sure it will all come out during the campaign if Obama does run.

Her whole thesis is based on a questionnaire of black alumni from Princeton (of which only %22 percent responded) and how their experiences of being black on the campus of Princeton had affected their attitudes later. She gives such examples as: More comfortable with interacting with Blacks or whites in various activities, will they feel obligated as a member of the black community to help other blacks who are less fortunate than themselves...

She wrote she felt "obligated to this community" (I presume the black community) she was "somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future recourses to benefit this community first and foremost".......?

"These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a white cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant. "

She has hypothesis in which she quotes the definition of Black Power "which guided me in the formulation and use of this concept in this study" . Great.

She stated that "individuals must create a motivational hierarchy from which the individual can determine which social groups are most important to benefit. Some may place the highest value on benefiting themselves or their families. Others may value their occupational feilds most highly. Others may put God before anything else. In still other instances, one's motivation to benefit either the U.S. society, the non-white races of the world (?) or the human species as a whole, could be most powerful"

On page twenty she is presuming that "Blacks who are more comfortable with whites than with blacks will probably be less interested in benefiting the black community."
She goes on to say "the more time respondents (black alumni) spend with Blacks, the more more positive and compassionate they will be in their attitudes towards lower class Black Americans."
WHAAAAAA?? (read page 20 to read all about that)

SHe did NOT get the response she wanted even form the %22 of the respondents....
Her explanation of this was clear (found on page 47):
"These findings make it possible to speculate that at the Post-Princeton point (after college), as more respondents were becoming increasingly motivated by their occupations, they had less attention to divide among their other priorities. As a result, some of their motivations to the Black community may have become withdrawn in order to put more emphasis on occupational attainments."

She even goes on to talk about the "guilt" that people must feel who do not have the notion that the Black community needs to separate themselves or the guilt of "betraying the black community": "If separatists ideologies are based are total separation ,a certain level of guilt is more likely to be felt by a respondent who became a sept/plu (seperationist or pluralist) than by those who became int/assim (integrationist or assimilationist)." (page 48)

So her conclusions you can read yourself- they sat on page 51 in section 3 of her thesis.
First of all - as a Princeton Graduate, I am appauled that THIS is an exceptable thesis -
Secondly, I get that she believes the more time you spend with White people the less likely you will care about poor black people. She is basically saying shame on all those black people who spend time with white people because they cannot care about their "black community" very much if they do. Because only %22 of the black alumni even bothered to answer the survey - It makes me think that Princeton did on okay job on educating all races equally and the people who did NOT respond was as disgusted as I am by this thesis subject.

Society, as a whole, has tried very hard in the past few generations to blur the lines of race and this is a slap in the face.
I am a White educated woman who cares about the lower class - all of them equally, not just one race. Why can't we concentrate on that?

This information comes on the heels of Rev. Wright and I feel like Michelle is just a repeat of what Rev. Wright was spewing... black Liberation Theology at it's best. Rasicm, hatred and

First lady? Good Lord, I hope not!

Michelle's Thesis:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

I don't like Hillary but at least she wrote about Saul Alinsky who is controversial (to say the least) but at least tells people to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps....and make things happen for themselves.

Our "beloved" Ted

Ted Kennedy was rushed to the hospital Saturday morning. He had a seizure and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he spoke to Kennedy's wife in the afternoon and was told "his condition is not life-threatening, but serious."

"But the one thing I can say, if there ever was a fighter, anyone who stood for what we as Americans, we as Democrats, stand for, it's Ted Kennedy," Reid said addressing the Nevada Democratic Convention in Reno.

"stood for what we as Americans, we as Democrats, stand for, it's Ted Kennedy"....What? Getting away with murder?

Glad for Kennedy's family he's okay - as much as I dislike the man - no one deserves stroke, death and pain for a family.....but common..... talking about him like he's a model for the Democratic party? That's just sad - but maybe fitting.

Irena Sendler passed away on Monday May 12th, 2008 at 8:00 am CEST in Warsaw, Poland. She live most of her young life in Otwock, Poland. During World War II she was an activist in the Polish Underground and the Zegota Polish anti-Holocaust resistance in Warsaw. She convinced the Nazi's they may, too, get sick if typhoid broke out amongst the Jews because of such bad conditions. So under the pretext of conducting inspections of sanitary conditions during a typhoid outbreak, Sendler visited the ghetto and smuggled out babies and small children in ambulances and trams, sometimes disguising them as packages, suitcases, boxes or in sacks. She placed them in safe homes all over Poland and kept records of each one in a jar she buried by an apple tree in her back yard.

When the Nazi's discovered what she had done they broke both of her legs and tortured her. She was set for her execution when she escaped (on broken legs mind you) and got to safety where she hid until the war was over. She went back to her house (that had been destroyed) and dug up that jar with all the children's information. They all received their family information and those who had parents who survived, were reunited with them.

One woman who led the rescue of 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust in World War II with no thought of her own life and safety. She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

Instead of this wonderful deserving woman receiving the Nobel Prize - Al Gore won it. I am so ashamed of those who applaud this!

Irena Sendlerowa was 98 years old.

More and more will come out about him......

Click HERE for a great little video about Obama....

Monday, May 12, 2008

This is a picture of our "wonderful" Mr. Obama NOT covering his heart and singing the National anthem.

Watch it HERE....the singer is so bad I may have put my hands over my ears instead of my heart - Obama is blatantly NOT putting his hand over his heart when even the other LIB DEMS are!

He has dishonored our Flag, our Military and our Nation.... I know all you "lovers of Obama" don't care but I sure do....
If Our President Resigned Today

I love this e mail - this would be GW's resignation speech....if he got fed up with all the stupid Dems:

Normally, I start these things out by saying 'My Fellow Americans', not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.

I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.

The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.

Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it doesn't sink in.

Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security.
We face real threats in the world.

Don't give me this 'blood for oil' crap. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq 's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty.

Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Clinton established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you?

You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out-spend and out-tech them.

That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the bastards are all over the globe. You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people ha ve worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, you might just as well Fed-Ex a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over the Internet, it just isn't on the pages of the New York Times or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol.

I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city that's below sea level and has a Category 5 hurricane approaching.

I could say more about your idiotic belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

So, I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream of) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too.

That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it - you can have her. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

So that's it.

God bless what's left of America . Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you - kiss my a**!

In Obama's own words

A few lines from Obama's books in his own words: And this guy wants to be our President???!!!
Pay close attention to the last comment!!

From Dreams of My Father:
'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'

From Dreams of My Father :
'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'

From Dreams of My Father:
'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'

From Dreams of My Father:
'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
From Dreams of My Father:
'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'
From Audacity of Hope:
'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'
Eckhart Tolle is Creepy

Oprah is one of the most dangerous people in the world. She is smart, charismatic, rich and very influential. She once was a Christian and now follows this "guru" Eckhart Tolle, who is SOOOO Creepy. Remember, the devil disguises himself as an agel of light.

Oprah and Mr. Tolle have twisted religion to suit themselves and actually deny Christ. It's amazing how they are sweeping people up in their "feel good"'s so weird..... The World According to Oprah.....
Lick HERE to see the creeped out Mr. Tolle.

Michelle Obama..... a first Lady? Lord NO!

I don't think Ms. Michelle could ever be a great first lady. After all, she hasn't been proud of her country until now. Now that people are following her husband like sheep. She's not proud until now? Victory in the Cold War? how about only things that have made liberals proud — all the accomplishments of inclusion? How about the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1991? Or Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s elevation to the Supreme Court? 25 years of economic progress and social progress and she's not proud until now? Wow, she's selfish and shallow.

She said "Hope finally feels like it's making a comeback".....keep hoping Michelle, hope the people can forget what an insensitive, idiotic remark you made.

Another Obama-nation

Great E-mail...... This guy KILLS me!

Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171, During rendition of the national anthem when the
flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.

"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides," Obama said. "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it."

WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this could possibly be our next president. I, for once, am speechless . .
