In order to get to the heart of the matter, sometimes you have to cut out the unneeded parts to get at the good stuff...

Any member of Congress who participates in the illegal and unconstitutional act of "Deeming and Passing" in order to illegally confiscate private property of US Citizens without due process of law for the express act of income redistribution may have committed an act of Treason by their actions.

Those who commit an act of Treason during wartime are subject to criminal prosecution and if found guilty subject punishment up to and inclusing the death penalty.

Grab your pitchforks folks...

One man's opinion and until this passes, this is still a free country...or at least it was until that asshole occupied the White House.

Kevin James Hannaford

Born: Oct 8, 1968 - Brooklyn, NY
Died: Sep 11, 2001 - New York, NY

Married: Apr 4, 1997
to wife Eileen McGinley Hannaford
Patrick James Hannaford - Born 1997
Kevin James Hannaford, Jr. - Born 2002

Occupation: Commodities Broker -
TradeSpark, a divison of Cantor Fitzgerald.

Passion: His family and friends.

Kevin was many things to many people. He was a respected athlete, good friend, respected collegue, brother, cousin, son, uncle, husband, and father to two sons.

He is remembered by many for his infectuous smile and sense of humor. I think that you can almost feel that in this image of him. He shared his positive, upbeat attitude with those around him and it rubbed off. Even after he has been gone, his smile still brings happiness to those left behind.

His focus in life was not in himself, but standing in the background, basking in the glow of others accomplishments. His pride was in his loving wife, his eldest son, his namesake son whom he never knew personally, his family and his friends.

Kevin was a gifted athlete. He enjoyed snow skiing, swimming, soccer, and lacrosse. Kevin was a great and valued friend. He took an interest in others' passions and was supportive of what they wanted to do in life. He also enjoyed sharing what he liked to do with others.

On Sept 11, 2009, please take a silent moment and reflect. Pray for those who perished, for those who were left behind, and to appreciate how lucky we are to have known friends, relatives, collegues, neighbors like Kevin and to have the blessings of what we have.

Life is a mircle. Kevin James Hannaford proves that statement is true.

Sometime today, September 11, 2009, take a few minutes and call your husband/wife and tell them that you love them; give your child an extra hug before you drop them at school; call your parents/grandparents just to say hi. These are simple acts that we let slip away from us. Do it for the ones you love; do it for yourself; do it in honor of the 2996 who left us to remember them as they were; most of all, take the time and just do it...

Death of the Capital Punishment

Attorney David Senior, lead counsel for Michael Morales, has succeeded in a manner that no other death penalty lawyer has. He put forth the argument to a sympathetic judge (the Honoroable Jeremy Fogel, Clinton appointee) of the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Senior's argument, in a nutshell, is that lethal injection using a 3 drug "cocktail" might possibly cause the person under sentence pain during the process. The pain, as the person's breathing / heart are stopped and the brain dies from oxygen deprivation might occur if the first drug is not sufficient enough to completely sedate the prisoner. This pain becomes "cruel and unusual punishment" and thus violating the prisoner's constitutional rights.

Judge Fogel method to resolve the impass forced the medical establishment into the capital case with modifications to Protocol 770 and thus, with one fell stroke of a pen, has put capital punishment on hold for the entire United States. 770 is a well thought out and oft reviewed and affirmed. It is the pattern for most states using lethal injection as a method of execution. I guess that Starrie Decisis is only an appropriate judicial philosophy for laws that liberals view as legal and just.

What everyone needs to consider is the following: when a human is going through natural death, they go through similar experiences as a prisoner who is being executed. If you are modestly aware of your surroundings (not fully sedated), you would be aware of and possibly feel pain as your brain goes through oxygen deprivation and dies.

As such, I postulate that:
1. Either natural death is in violation of the constitution as it is cruel and unusual "punishment" (price you pay for living) and should not be allowed.
2. Since the manner of suffering between natural death and execution by lethal injection are visited upon all without discrimination, then the suffering is not unusual and not cruel, so therefore is not unconstitutional.

The other point to consider is did Michael Morales ensure that his victim, 17 year old Terri Winchell, did not suffer as he raped, strangled (unsuccessfully), bludgeoned (repeatedly), and stabbed (repeatedly)? If he made sure that she was fully sedated and could not feel anything, then he should be given clemency and a life sentence. Since he did not, his right to a punishment free of cruel and unusual punishment is forfeited, along with his miserable right to existence.

Michael, may you feel as much, if not more pain that what you have caused the victims (including the surviving members of the Winchell family) ... may God grant you pardon, but put you in a place where you can ponder your many sins...and that place, in my heart I know, is not heavenly.

The next Supreme Court Nominee is...

Consuela Maria Callahan.

Here is why.
1. Bush loves to pull the unexpected. Very few saw Roberts as the favorite.
2. Would put Boxer, Kennedy and all the libs in a tight corner. Callahan was elevated to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals with a 99-0 vote. How would the libs explain that Callahan was not qualified to sit on the SCOTUS after that kind of approval.
3. Is female and hispanic.
4. Is conservative.
5. Is from California.
6. Is a former prosecutor (in San Joaquin County).
7. Has judicial experience.
8. Would push Howard Dean into a apoplectic fit.

Most moms deserve sainthood for bearing us and bearing our shortcomings and loving us unconditionally. I know that my Mom does...

However, the MSM is going overboard on how it is portraying Cindy Sheehan.

Take a look a this image :

What you don't see is this:

Some times it is not what you see, but what they won't show you that is worth the 1000 words.

A manufactured story

HT on story to Laurie Byrd from Polipundit.com ... her story got the dicing blades going...it is also blogged on Michelle Malkin...

AP Posted the following story...

Unlike earlier wars, nearly all Arlington National Cemetery gravestones for troops killed in Iraq or Afghanistan are inscribed with the slogan-like operation names the Pentagon selected to promote public support for the conflicts. Families of fallen soldiers and Marines are being told they have the option to have the government-furnished headstones engraved with "Operation Enduring Freedom" or "Operation Iraqi Freedom" at no extra charge, whether they are buried in Arlington or elsewhere. A mock-up shown to many families includes the operation names.
The vast majority of military gravestones from other eras are inscribed with just the basic, required information: name, rank, military branch, date of death and, if applicable, the war and foreign country in which the person served.
Families are supposed to have final approval over what goes on the tombstones. That hasn't always happened.
Nadia and Robert McCaffrey, whose son Patrick was killed in Iraq in June 2004, said "Operation Iraqi Freedom" ended up on his government-supplied headstone in Oceanside, Calif., without family approval.
"I was a little taken aback," Robert McCaffrey said, describing his reaction when he first saw the operation name on Patrick's tombstone. "They certainly didn't ask my wife; they didn't ask me." He said Patrick's widow told him she had not been asked either.
"In one way, I feel it's taking advantage to a small degree," McCaffrey said. "Patrick did not want to be there, that is a definite fact."

Now do the following: Google Nadia McCaffrey

Is it coincidence that AP chose to cover this story and refer to this family? I think not. It is another case, my opinion, of AP publishing an Op / Ed piece under the guise of a news story. This family is suffering a great loss and my heart goes out to them. But they are using this loss for political capital. That is where my sympathy for this greiving family ends.

Nadia McCaffery is interviewed here (from KTVU website) talking about her intent to join Cindy Sheehan in Crawford for the "protest"... She is also a member of the GSFP, a "non-profit" organization that is acting more like a political group, which might be in violation of its non-profit status from the IRS. Gold Star Families for Peace is a front group founded by Cindy Sheehan to achieve a political means to ending the war.

I fully support the President and his administration in the prosecution for the war on terror. I make no bones about it. It is such a shame that Nadia, Cindy and a few others are using the names and memories of the loved ones, ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice, for political means. I grieve for their loss and am grateful for the gift of freedom that their loved ones, along with so many others throughout history have given so that we all can have the freedom to debate the GWOT.

If it wasn't for the sacrifice, none of us would be able to have that ability. What say you?
