IT'S TIME TO GIVE PROFOUND THANKS

It's time to thank the good fortune of our birth and/or citizenship/legal residency in this great and good country we are lucky enough to call home.

It's time to thank God for the blessing of having George W. Bush as our President during this past six years - and for another 2 years. If nothing else, with our encouragement and prayers, he will do his duty by deflecting the worst of the moonbattery that is destined to come from the decidedly liberal Congress, while preventing the craven in Congress from somehow instituting "cut and run" as our new national posture.

It's time to thank God for the blessing of our brave, all-volunteer military and to further give thanks that the insanity proposed by Rep. Charlie Rangel appears to have been deflected.

It's time, most of all, to thank God for our family, our friends and our good fortune to have the blessings that we do have.

It's time, for me at least, to thank God for all of you who read my blog and for all my friends in the blogsphere who have encouraged me over the past couple of years, and to further thank the Diety for the blessings of good health, freedom from want and freedom to worship as I so desire.

TO ALL OF YOU, I WISH THE MOST JOYOUS OF THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS and may the weight gain be negligible! After all - there's still Christmas to consider!

AND FROM THE SUBLIME TO THE RIDICULOUS:
National 'Nurse-In' Planned at U.S. Airports Over Treatment of Breast-Feeding Mom
Tuesday , November 21, 2006

MONTPELIER, Vt. — Twenty-four-old college student Valarie Roney doesn't have children, but she plans to park herself at an Atlanta airport "nurse-in" just the same — just on principal.

Pregnant mother Ashley Clark, 26, of Calverton, N.Y., accompanied by her 2-year-old son, will do the same in New York.

Others irate over the ejection of a nursing mother from a Delta Air Lines commuter flight in Burlington plan similar actions Tuesday at more than a dozen airports around the country. Among them: New York, Baltimore, Detroit, Nashville, Tenn., Minneapolis and Las Vegas.

"This is not an isolated incident," said Roney, of Carrollton, Ga. "It's every day in every city, people walking up to women feeding their babies, saying 'You should go to the bathroom,' or 'You should put a blanket over her.' They wouldn't want to eat in a bathroom or eat lunch with a blanket over their heads."
Ladies, they are BABIES but we are ADULTS and excuse me for being crass but I do NOT want to see your big tits while I am in a restaurant, on an airplane, on a public street or anywhere in public. Have you stupid cows (pun intended) never heard of discretion? I'm sure you think you are being all "back to nature" and the like and certainly breast feeding is healthy for your child - but do you have to SHARE with the world as if you are the FIRST woman on earth to breast feed? It's called MODESTY ladies and it is an all too uncommon attribute that needs to be revived!

I can't call this post so great. Babies are a miracle to wonder about and the nursing of them is an even greater miracle... just watch God's best work at hand people !!
It's not about modesty. It's about our culture's fixation on bodily functions as being something to be ashamed off or something that must be hidden as shameful, as if nursing a baby is something despicable. But it is not !! Women have breasts for just that function, never mind that men fix their sexual desires on them, they are tools and work miracles.
When you see a woman nursing in public don't avert your eyes in displaced shame, but celebrate the miracle happening before your eyes: Mother giving sustenance to Child. Is there anything more beautiful than this ?
