America in all its Glory

Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia

What a gorgeous shot of Mabry Mill in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Virginia). Such a peaceful, serene setting.

Sitting on the edge of the water. Taking a worm and baiting it on the hook of a line that is attached to a long, thin tree branch. Gently "cast" the line into the water. Now to sit quietly, watching the dragonflies skip across the surface of the calm water. Listening to the frogs calling to one another. All the thoughts of your daily life are no longer with you - all you are thinking about at this moment is the beauty of the trees, where they simply meld into the banks of the water.

Who cares if you ever get a nibble on your line. Just to enjoy this moment that you will never live again. That is life!

Every crime committed by an illegal immigrant should never have happened!!!

Read my posting under Illegal Immigrants.

A quote from President Theodore Roosevelt addressed on immigration in 1907:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people."

3 Bodies Found at Home With Dead Infant

OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) -- Investigators found three tiny bodies in and near the home of a woman who was charged last week with killing her newborn child, police said Monday.

None of the bodies was full-term, said Ocean City Police spokesman Barry Neeb. He said it would take testing to determine the causes of their deaths and if they were all related to Christy Freeman.

Freeman, 37, came to authorities' attention on Thursday while she was hospitalized. Medical personnel called police after determining she had been pregnant but could not account for the child.

After interviewing her, police searched Freeman's home and found the body of an infant wrapped in a blanket. Freeman was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder and manslaughter under a 2005 law allowing charges for the death of a fetus that can live outside the womb.

Officers continued searching the home and property during the weekend and found the other three small bodies in the house and nearby, Neeb said.

Police said Freeman's four other children were safe and with her longtime boyfriend.

Freeman, owner of Classic Taxi in Ocean City, was to have a bond hearing later Monday.
I cannot believe that this woman has not heard of birth control. One dead infant and 3 dead fetuses and 4 live children. And she is 37 years of age. My gawd - clinics give free birth control pills!
