Al-Arabiya TV and Fox News are now both reporting that Saddam Hussein has met his maker. He has been hanged and executed for his crimes against humanity.

Hillary...you were saying Iraq would be better off with a person who exterminated over 180,000 people?

My Mood: calm calm

Saddam Hussein, the former Iraqi dictator who is reponisible for a minimum of 180,000 murders in his time is set to die. He has been handed over to Iraqi officials and he will be executed within 48 hours by hanging.

I think their constitutional rule of "must be executed within 30 days" is a good thing in this case. At least they are not wasting time with him.

Today, ground was broken on the new Martin Luther King memorial down in Washington, DC on the National Mall. All I can say is that King truly deserves this honor and it will be an excellent addition. I think it will properly pay tribute to all the work he did to help gain equality to African Americans, and pay the lasting tribute he deserves.

I haven't heard when construction is supposed to be finished, but the next time I get to DC (whenever that may be), I will have to check it out.

In the meantime, I did make a $30 donation to help with the memorial. If you are interested in helping further the cause, consider making a one-time gift. You may do that online at http://www.mlkmemorial.org and in return, you do get recognition for helping build the memorial. Not that it's important for the recognition, but it's a cool perk in return.

Well, for those who thought that Saddam Hussein would never die, guess what...he is about to. He got convicted for crimes against humanity and therefore will be sentenced to death by hanging.

I wonder what would have happened had John Kerry had his way and been the next president...

Well, it has now been 5 years since we had that awful day here in our country.

We remember the day when the first attacks occurred when the World Trade Center was hit and then collapsed. Then, it was followed by the attack on the Pentagon and then the crash in Shanksville, PA. I'm sure many of us were wondering "why" when everything happened. I know...I was there also and went through the same emotions that everyone went through.

I can still remember the day where I was in my first year of college and was in my 8am psych class, listening to the professor and kinda falling asleep at points during the lecture. As I left the class, I turned on my car radio and then heard the news that we in fact had been hit by terrorist attacks.

Later that day, I went to work as usual, and then we all ended up closing up based on the events. I still feel that was the right thing to do knowing there was all the uncertainty going on. Noone knew if we were going to be attacked again, or if it would be much worse.

The immediate days after the attacks saw all of us running to help our fellow friends, families, and people we didn't even know. There was one common goal, and that was to be as strong as we can be. I feel that we have become stronger.

I look back and I am very lucky in that I did not lose anyone in my family. It truly is a blessing. However, there are friends of mine that did lose family members. I felt for them since their lives changed radically forever and still feel for them as the process will never fully end. There were many long conversations and also times where a big hug and comfort was in order.

5 years later, we are still proudly the United States of America. The land of the free, and the home of the brave. Nothing will ever make us question or patriotism, and nothing will ever make us question our resolve. Nothing is going to ever question the hard work our nation does, and nothing will ever make us forget the sacrifices and the heroism that those men and women made for us. They didn't have to sacrifice...it was their nature to do what they do, and to the best of their abilities. Nothing will ever make us question the patriotism of those who wear our nation's uniform. These people didn't have to. They volunteered to help protect all of us, and for that we will forever be grateful.

I want to put aside my political stance for a minute and say to everyone that has helped us during these times that we appreciate everything you do. Without the help, sacrifices, and effort, we would not have the life that we do.

So in closing, I want to tell you to say a prayer for all of the people that have ever had importance to you and to also give a heartfelt thanks to all of the men, women, and anyone who has sacrificed for the good of us, both on September 11, 2001, through today, and beyond. We truly appreciate it.

September 11, 2001

Let’s start this off with a quote….

“It was leadership here at home that gave us strong American influence abroad, and the collapse of imperial Communism. Great nations have responsibilities to lead, and we should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag.”
– President Ronald Reagan

With all that’s gone on during the last week in England and it’s ramifications here in the United States, we should be happy to know that someone, somewhere, was doing some good old fashioned electronic surveillance. As someone in our government was determined enough to check out bank records, it was also revealed that some of the airline bombers were duly unemployed, yet suspiciously had thousands of pounds in their British bank accounts.

But when those Islamo-fascists (our friends over at CAIR hate it when we call them that) act up, they now know they’ll have more time to not only plot their terrorist deeds, but the chance of actually boarding an aircraft with an explosive device is greater because of the criticisms of people within our own country.

Also, with all that’s gone on in Israel and Lebanon over the last few weeks, it’s becoming increasingly clear who is on our side and who is not. Apparently, we cannot trust Reuters. We knew we couldn’t trust the likes of CNN when it came to internal political differences, but according to Yaakov Lappin of ynetnews, it was CNN in particular that appears to be using its position as a disseminator of news to portray one side as villain and one as victim.

How cool is that! They are so damn lucky!

American Idol winner Taylor Hicks and his fellow finalists, including runner-up Katherine McPhee, visited the White House Friday – but President Bush provided the entertainment.

"We gave him some presents," Idol's Ace Young tells PEOPLE. "On behalf of Taylor winning, we gave him a harmonica that said American Idol on it that he attempted to play. He didn't sound bad! And Taylor gave him a Soul Patrol T-shirt and he said it'll be his new jogging shirt. And I gave him an Ace beanie. He said it's a little too hot for the beanie, but he'll save it for winter."

The President, who posed for photos with the Idols and gave them a tour of the Oval Office, asked them how long it had been since they'd seen their families and told them, "This is the highlight of my day."

"Before we walked in," Young says, "everyone was asking who voted for him. … A majority (of us) didn't. But when we walked out, every single person said, 'Wow, what a great guy!' It felt like we were just hanging out with him."

Elliott Yamin missed the first part of the visit with the President. About five minutes after it started, he was seen racing down the hall toward the Oval Office, wiping his brow and saying, "Phew!"

"He was sleeping!" Young explains, adding that the Idols – who have been on the "American Idols Live" tour since July 6 – arrived in Washington, D.C., at 5:30 a.m., and that some of them have been having a hard time sleeping on the bus that takes them from city to city.

Before meeting the President, the Idols, accompanied by finalist Paris Bennett's mother, Jamecia, were given a tour of the White House by the First Lady's press secretary, Susan Whitson – Hicks's onetime 9th-grade English teacher.

A favorite stop? The library, where the Idols took books off the shelves looking for a secret passageway – to no avail. "We lost Kellie (Pickler) for a little while," says Young, laughing. "We thought she'd found something! When we were up in the Oval Office, Kellie told President Bush we'd been looking for secret passageways. In a joking manner, he said, 'Yeah … don't.' "

The visit came just hours before the Idols hit the stage at D.C.'s Verizon Center – the first time McPhee performed with them on tour since recovering from bronchitis and laryngitis. "She hasn't shown any nerves," says Young. "She'll get right back into it."

Ok, tell me this is not deliberate insanity here.

Cindy Sheehan buys land near Bush’s ranch
Antiwar mom used insurance money to buy Crawford, Texas plot

Activist Cindy Sheehan, seen at a protest on July 3, plans to use her Crawford, Texas property for an antiwar gathering.
Updated: 39 minutes ago

CRAWFORD, Texas - War protester Cindy Sheehan has purchased a 5-acre plot in Crawford with some of the insurance money she received after her son was killed in Iraq.

The group she helps lead, Gold Star Families for Peace, says on its Web site that it will return next month to protest the war in Iraq in the small town near Waco where President Bush has a ranch. Like last year, Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004, will again demand to meet with the president.

"We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George’s resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world," Sheehan said in a newsletter set to be sent to supporters Thursday. "I can’t think of a better way to use Casey’s insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves."

Her anti-war gathering in Crawford is scheduled for Aug. 16 through Sept. 2. But Bush is scheduled to be at his ranch mainly during the first two weeks of August.

Sheehan, from California, reinvigorated the anti-war movement last summer with her peace vigil, which started in ditches off the road to Bush’s ranch. As it grew, the group also set up its protests on a private, 1-acre lot closer to the ranch.
