something like THIS comes up!!
BOSTON (AP) — More than one out of every five dollars of the $126 million Massachusetts is receiving in earmarks from a $410 billion federal spending package is going to help preserve the legacy of the Kennedys.
The bill includes $5.8 million for the planning and design of a building to house a new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Senate. The funding may also help support an endowment for the institute.
The bill also includes $22 million to expand facilities at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum and $5 million more for a new gateway to the Boston Harbor Islands on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a park system in downtown Boston named after Kennedy’s mother and built on land opened up by the Big Dig highway project.
What’s a girl to do?
I’m just saying…
“Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.
Security officials said the strikes, which saw up to five missiles slam into houses in separate villages, killed seven “foreigners” – a term that usually means al-Qaeda – but locals also said that three children lost their lives. ”
This past Sunday, in Lansing, MI, a gay group called ‘Bash Back’ infiltrated an AOG church during worship service. You can follow these links for “media support”on the story (HT to Nick for providing these links at my request):

You can also google Bash Back Lansing and you’ll find their home pages with the plans and after-action reports.
Here are excerpts of a report by Nick De Leeuw, at RightMichigan.com.
On Sunday morning, amidst worshiping congregants and following unifying prayers that our President-elect be granted wisdom as he prepares to lead our nation through difficult global, social and economic challenges, the Michigan left declared open war on peaceful church goers.
They did it with banners, chants, blasphemy, by storming the pulpit, by vandalizing the church facility, by potentially defiling the building with lewd, public, sex acts and by intentionally forcing physical confrontations with worshipers.
I returned home myself yesterday, from church and an afternoon watching football with the family, to find an email in my inbox from a friend in the Capitol City… Yesterday’s email began with an understated proclamation; “So church today was exciting…”
On Sunday, November 9, 2008 Michigan liberals sat peacefully through announcements, worship and prayer for the sick, our nation and our President-elect before staging a coordinated, disgusting and repulsive attack on worshipers and the broader concept of the church itself at Lansing’s Mount Hope Church.
The lefties were a part of a liberal organization known as Bash Back Lansing… called on “queers and trannies” from across the state and the region to converge on Lansing for what they refer to as an “action.” While many of the members claim to be anarchists ..their broader goal is stated plainly on one of their lefty blogs.
“I can tell you that we are targeting a well-known anti-queer, anti-choice radical right wing establishment.”
Mount Hope, for the record, is an evangelical, bible believing church whose members provide free 24 hour counseling, prayer lines, catastrophic care for families dealing with medical emergencies, support groups for men, women and children dealing with a wide variety of life’s troubles, crisis intervention, marriage ministries, regular, organized volunteer work in and around the city, missions in dozens of countries across the globe, a construction ministry that has built over 100 churches, schools, orphanages and other projects all over the world and an in-depth prison ministry that reaches out, touches and helps the men and women the rest of society fears the most. They also teach respect for all human life and the Biblical sanctity of marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.
This is what Michigan liberals label a “radical right wing establishment,” and over 30 of them showed up in force yesterday. Wearing secret-service style ear pieces and microphones they received the “go” from their ringleader and off they went.
Prayer had just finished when men and women stood up in pockets across the congregation, on the main floor and in the balcony. “Jesus was gay,” they shouted among other profanities and blasphemies as they rushed the stage. Some forced their way through rows of women and kids to try to hang a profane banner from the balcony while others began tossing fliers into the air. Two women made their way to the pulpit and began to kiss.
Their other props? I’ll let them tell you in their own words… from another of their liberal blogs:
“(A) video camera, a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, pink fabric…yeh.”
…According to a source inside the church yesterday there was a “journalist” from the Lansing City Pulse along for the ride, tipped off about the action and more interested in getting a story than in preventing the vandalism, the violence and anti-Christian hatred being spewed by the lefties. We’ll see what he files and what his editors see fit to print.
The “journalist” e-mailed Nick – you can read that e-mail in his post here.
…The church’s response? After things settled down, the blasphemy ended, the lewd props removed and the families safe from fear of additional men and women running into and past them the pastor took the stage and led the congregation in one more prayer… not for retribution, or divine justice or a celestial comeuppance (that’s what I’d have prayed for) but instead that the troubled individuals who’d just defiled the Lord’s house, so full of anger and hate, would know Jesus’ love in their lives and God’s peace that exceeds human understanding…
I just love Ken Timmerman and his writings. He’s at it again at Newsmax.com. This time it’s his posting dated today, October 27, 2008, regarding voter fraud perpetrated by Barack Obama and his campaign staff. Seriously, are we, the people, going to just sit back and allow this to happen? We do not have to be afraid of this man!!
Here’s some of what Ken wrote:
…Obama’s surprisingly strong win in Iowa, which defied all the polls, propelled his upstart candidacy to front-runner status. But Lynette Long, a Hillary supporter from Bethesda, Md., who has a long and respected academic career, believes Obama’s victory in Iowa and in 12 other caucus states was no miracle. “It was fraud,”
…In Hawaii, for example, the caucus organizers ran out of ballots, so Obama operatives created more from Post-its and scraps of paper and dumped them into ice cream buckets. “The caucuses ended up with more ballots than participants, a sure sign of voter fraud,” Long said.
…In caucus after caucus, Obama bused in supporters from out of state, intimidated elderly voters and women, and stole election packets so Hillary supporters couldn’t vote. Thanks to these and other strong-arm tactics, Obama won victories in all but one of the caucuses, even in states such as Maine where Hillary had been leading by double digits in the polls.
Do yourself a favor and follow the link to the whole story! Informed voters are, well – INFORMED VOTERS!!
I’m just saying…
This is what AP Writer, Amy Fortlitl, has to report on protests at the RNC.
And here’s just a bit about the “shinannigans” of those peaceful anti-war protesters over at Atlas Shrugs.
Hell in a handcart, I’m just saying……
