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."

What in the world is going on?

In the headlines today!

Mom was drunk when she killed her baby by microwaving her.

In Pittsburg, a 1-year-old girl was found strapped in a car seat, rain-soaked and covered with leaves and dirt, after her mother left her for about 10 hours with the sun roof open as a violent storm raged.

A California woman is charged with beating her children, ages 2 and 4, on a commercial aircraft and interfering with the flight crew. 38-year old Tamera Freeman was arrested on Monday at Denver International Airport upon her arrival on a Frontier Airlines flight from San Francisco.

Los Angeles Police officers arrested four juveniles last week for allegedly throwing a smoke bomb at a Downtown homeless man sleeping on the street.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Three teens suspected in the gang rape and assault of a mother and her 12-year-old son.

LONG BEACH, Calif. - A mother charged with driving her 14-year-old son and six other juveniles to a skate park so they could attack another teenager pleaded not guilty Tuesday to murder.
Police said Eva Daley knew her son and the others planned to kill Jose Cano when she drove them to the park June 26. Cano, 13, died of stab wounds. Police said he had previously been involved in a dispute with the youths.
An angry confrontation between supporters of Daley, 30, and the slain boy broke out in the hallway outside the courtroom shortly after she entered her plea.
As people screamed at one another, one of Daley's supporters punched a television news cameraman.

In Ireland, a father has been charged with raping his two daughters over a 12-year period, starting when one of them was four years old.
It is claimed that one of the girls was raped six times and indecently assaulted 22 times. The other girl was allegedly raped once and indecently assaulted 17 times.

And from 2003 -

CINCINNATI -- Prosecutors released new information Tuesday about a man accused of raping a 3-year-old child on the Internet.
Investigators said Paul A. Kraft, 31, raped a 3-year-old girl at least five times and broadcast the rape live on the Internet at least twice.

I could go on and on, but this just highlights the injustice against our young and innocent. And this is just what happens here in the United States! The atrocities against children in other countries, especially third world countries, is horrible.

What has happened to society?

Ex-nurse gets life for dismembering her husband.
