Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

Ron Paul for President!

Linda Schrock Taylor has written an excellent article regarding Ron Paul:

I also just read this article on the YouTube debate:

So, where's the Ron Paul quote? Or was he even invited?

The "hillbillies" about which the article talks refer to the two fabulously funny guys in Red State Update.

"Gimme Your Guns!" Says Government

I received the following bulletin from a MySpace friend. I've said it before, but I didn't understand the gun thing, and its importance to individual freedoms, until recently. Most people are brainwashed by the media on this one. Gun thing = Second Amendment :)

Thanks to lusciousgirl for letting me know about this.

From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia. Here is the link:

Hi Yanks,

I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender their 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. (That's $780.79 for every gun collected and destroyed. - RRP)

The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent; Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)! In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not.

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly.

Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in "successfully ridding Australian society of guns." I suspect that you won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the state Assembly disseminating this information.

The Australian experience proves it. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note, you Americans, before it's too late!

This has been verified by many other sources. Here are a couple of them:

DO not let your gun rights be taken away.

Go Here to Take Action Before it is too Late!!

The Well-Meaning Adoptress

For those of us who've been unbrainwashed by seeking and finding the truth about adoption, it seems especially odd for a mom of two sons to seek other children to adopt. This week, at one of my son's classes, a white adoptress had a black baby in her sling. Either she changed dads since the boys or she adopted, I thought. I found out soon after seeing her that she, a la Madonna, has a little black baby that is not hers, and will never be hers, riding on her hip. Funny how one never seems to see a black mom or adoptress (or both) with a white baby on her hip. Nonetheless, the Madonna adoption complex seems to have hit L.A. It's a real shame.

I have a real problem with someone who not only takes someone else's child and pretends to be the mother, but who seems proud of her legal kidnapping. I find, however, that many people have been so brainwashed by the $1.5 billion adoption industry that they rejoice when an adoptress takes a child. They also mourn when a real mom takes back her baby. With such brainwashed people in the United States, it's no wonder that the "War on Drugs," "War on Terror," and "War on Poverty" can so easily slip by the American people. Let's face it: Most people are so glued to the television that they've lost their intuition, the intuition that says a mom and baby belong together. In the rare circumstances where a mom and baby need to be separated, let's call a spade a spade and not pretend that the family who raises the child is the child's real family. But then again, people might have to turn off American Idol and the nightly news to think about that one.

By the way, while having a Thinking Mama Barbie Beauty Day yesterday, I picked up a copy of People or some other celebrity gossip magazine (sorry, they all look pretty much the same to me:). Sure enough, adoptress Sheryl Crow was being hailed as a "mother" and the real mom of the child she was holding, a child that is longing for its mom, was conveniently left out of the article. My guess is that Sheryl, like Sharon Stone, went to Gladney or one of those other agencies that cajole moms by giving them scholarships, et al. for taking away their baby. Well, Sheryl's new adoptee will have all the comforts of Hollywood, a real blessing to a child who so recently lost its most important connection, the one to its real mom.
