"WE WANT TO BE HEARD"; Families United Launches New Web Video
Families United press release Cedar Rapids, Iowa Families United today released Voices, a new Web video featuring Gold Star Families who feel their voices and their support for our troops and their mission are not represented in the mainstream media. In the video, available online at www.familiesunitedmission.com, Gold Star Families share their stories of sacrifice and display their hope that America's mission in the Global War on Terror especially in Afghanistan and Iraq is not abandoned before it is completed successfully. The video also implores mainstream media to no longer overlook stories of success and heroism in the War on Terror, and to look beyond the anti-war leaders of the left as regular sources for War on Terror stories.

The Middle East Media Research Institute Presents: Since the attacks on September 11, 2001, The Middle East Media Research Institute has monitored, translated, and recorded what was said in the Arab and Iranian press about that day. Prominent journalists, members of academia, leading religious figures, and even Arab government officials helped shape conspiracies about what "really" happened. The carefully documented collection is now available as a PDF and includes a compilation of articles and editorials from the mainstream Arabic and Persian language press, as well as transcripts from television programs. A documentary film about the Arab and Iranian reaction to 9-11 incorporates footage from various TV and satellite stations in the Middle East. It was made with Interface Media Group and narrated by acclaimed actor Ron Silver.

The Bear was a "teenager" looking for its own range. A garage door was accidentally left open and the bear found our garbage can quickly. A neighbor called to tell us a bear was in our driveway. I grabbed a video camera and took this footage. I mildly encouraged the bear to leave until I had some footage. Then I became forceful and he left. IT was too old to have a mother around and too young to have good respect for humans - especially with the enticing odor of food nearby. It was better to encourage the bear on its way as soon as possible to avoid it gaining a tolerance for people. We have too many snack sized kids in the area for bears that have no fear of people.

Here are some of my thoughts on the pickle the R's now have with the Foley mess... I think it needs to go into the strategy for defense of the Republican leadership.
WHY HOMOSEXUAL CONGRESSMEN (Public Figures who are also predators) - Get by For so Long:
I think one of the questions not brought out by anyone (that I have seen) is the roll played by "socially acceptable" ways of confronting homosexuals who may have predatory tendencies. I am thinking most heterosexuals are confused about exactly HOW to confront issues involving homesexuality in society. When most heterosexuals learn of a person's homosexuality, they are now "tuned by acceptable behavior norms" to AVOID making the person's orientation an issue. It is avoided at all costs because of laws prohibiting harrassment of persons of color, race, religion, orientation, age, sex, nationality, regionality, physical challenge, height, weight, style of dress, financial status, educational status, or profession (among other things). So - people who are "thought to be" homosexual - are given a wide berth of "polite" avoidance in any discussion (with ANYONE) of the person's "orientation". This allows the homosexual PREDATOR a wide margin of error in their activity until wide public knowledge of their orientation is expressed. Thus, some congressmen who are homosexual and known to be so are more acceptable to their constituents. If sexual misbehaviour occurs, it will be obvious. When such a pubic figure is secretly homosexual (like McGreevy) the public and even their peers in government are unable to effectively identify misbehavior until it is too late. "Don't Ask - Don't Tell" may work in some cases, but "Not Telling" reduces oversight. It probably should be criminal for an elected official to represent his constituency under any false pretenses of sexual orientation. Once "outed" there should be criminal charges for misrepresentation because while "in the closet" the public is isolated from potential misbehaviour by the social rules of conduct that are effectively a "gag order". A heterosexual who misbehaves will be more readily exposed because the rules SUPPORT the reporting and discussion of sexual harrassment. A closet homosexual who misbehaves is using the social stealth and cloaking tools provided by rules supporting suppression of discussion about orienteation.
