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."

The list of names of the "entitled" just keeps getting longer!

A quote from Paula Abdul.
"The whole thing about me being a judge on ‘American Idol’ is, it is the toughest job for me, because I have to think about something positive to say even when they're trying to rise above adversity, " she said. "So sometimes when I'm excited and want to get something out to say, I'll stop."

This little lady has no idea what a "tough job" really is. She needs to get out in the real world to see what a tough job is. And she really needs to stop whining and feeling as though she is "entitled" to anything.

What is it about people who have money or fame (even if the fame comes from just being an idiot) that makes them think that they are entitled.

I have watched 2 clips from her reality show. One was when, according to her, she was fired from the Bratz movie (according to her Reps, she quit due to a busy schedule). And the other was when she was to make an appearance on some show in New York. She and her entourage of assistants were in a cab and due to the bad weather, Paula's hairdresser and another assistant she needed to help put words in her mouth for the interview were not able to get a flight to New York because of the bad weather (not sure whether the bad weather was at the starting city or in New York).

Well, that was not an excuse, according to Paula. They had to get to New York.

I guess the work of God just is no excuse for Paula.

In both of these clips, Paula is slurring her words terribly and ends up crying. She is a train wreck waiting to happen. Thank goodness she is always being chauffered around and not driving herself.

I have news for Paula. She is no better than I am, just better known.

This another one of those spoiled people with money. She is in the same category as Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
