We're here to shine the light on the darkness of Cults & Hategroups in America. Hate isn't just about Race, Religion, or Sexual Preference, Violence against Women & Children are also Hate Crimes! How do we as a nation smother out hatred?
CULTS & HATE GROUPS HIDE BEHIND THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND SPEECH LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY. WE ARE HERE TO EXPOSE THEM FOR WHAT THEY REALLY ARE... RINGS OF TERROR!
Hatred In America. As I am researching for this group, I have found way too many hate groups in America. I felt sadness and even shame, for that is not what America is suppose to be about! The hatred around the world, for America runs just as deep. On Sept, 11, 2001 the hatred for us as a Nation, came crashing in on us! I found a really nice poem written by a Canadian woman. I'd like to share it with you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Candle Of Hope by Mysteria ------- As destruction's dust settled on today's horrific tragedy, It blanketed not only one nation, But all of humanity in a black, dusty, mourning shroud. Hearts break worldwide over losses, But fill with a new found love of family. Sad that it takes a catastrophe to make us Value the treasures we already have. Life, and our love of family Become our most valued treasures. Please join us as we light a candle in the window. We will stand as one family, united and strong, Illuminating our wish for peace and healing for all. A light of hope from our hearts for a safe world. Our little candle burning brightly, Added to millions, will hopefully send healing energy to today's victims, and a message That we stand united as one in hopes of peace. God Bless You All In America And Keep You Safe
WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT LEGALIZING MEDICAL MARIJUANA! Marijuana aided many people with the coping of terminal diseases. The use of medicinal marijuana has allowed many with no hope, to enjoy life more fully and lead rather decent life-styles!
If marijuana has no medical value, why would someone with a serious medical problem decline to use legal medicines that would be covered by their insurance and insist on something that could subject them to arrest? If marijuana has no medical value, what is the appropriate jail term for a sick, dying or disabled person who uses it? If marijuana has no medical value, what is the appropriate jail term for a doctor who prescribes it when he finds that no legal medication works as well? If marijuana has no medical value, why is it used in cancer and spinal cord injury wards through out the country? If marijuana has no medical value, why is the government providing it for free to eight people? If marijuana has no medical value, why is its principle active ingredient, THC, legally available by prescription? If marijuana has no medical value, why was it called "One of the safest therapeutically active substances known...." by the Drug Enforcement Administration's own Administrative Law Judge, Francis Young, in 1988. If marijuana is so dangerous, where are the actuarial statistics about its victims? Where are the bodies?
A caring, supportive group of people who support our military members and their families who make sacrifices daily for each of us. You don't have to agree with the war, just support our people who are there or making sacrifices here at home.

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, "I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you."
The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.
That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.
"What's wrong, are you well," she asked?
My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.
"I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you," I responded.. "Just the two of us."
She thought about it for a moment, and then said, "I would like that very much."
That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date.. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary.
She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel's. "I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed," she said, as she got into the car. "They can't wait to hear about our meeting."
We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through the entrees, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips. "It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small," she said. "Then it's time that you relax and let me return the favor," I responded.
During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation- -nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other's life. We talked so much that we missed the movie.
As we arrived at her house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you." I agreed.
"How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home. "Very nice. Much more so than I could have imagined," I answered.
Shortly after that, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I didn't have a chance to do anything for her.
Some time later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same place mother and I had dined.. An attached note said: "I paid this bill in advance. I wasn't sure that I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid for two plates - one for you and the other for your wife.
You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son.."
At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: "I LOVE YOU" and to give e our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more important than your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these things cannot be put off till "some other time.."
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby..... somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "normal" is history.
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct .... somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring .... somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.
Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good"....somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.
Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices ... somebody never came out the back k door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother.... somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.
Somebody said you can't love the second child as much as you love the first ... somebody doesn't have two children.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books.... somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery....somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten .... or on a plane headed for military "boot camp."
Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back somebody never organized seven giggling Brownies to sell cookies.
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married....somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home....somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her..... somebody isn't a mother.
Pass this along to all the "mothers" in your life and to everyone who ever had a mother. This isn't just about being a mother; it's about appreciating the people in your life while you have them....no matter who that person is...
