  1. I had to revive this thread. I bought this as soon as I could and watched it last night. I cried through the whole thing and even at times today while explaining the parts that touched me sooo much. The way the movie expressed the bond between a mother and a child was beautiful. Whether it was the actors or the directing...I am unsure all I know is I felt it. The beating was a bit much for me, I covered my eyes most of the time, but imagining what that family went through at that time was, for lack of anything better, incredible. I really can't even describe my feelings. I guess I never viewed him as a person, if that makes sense. The only part I can definatley say I found silly was the depiction of the "devil" after he "lost". I don't know how I owuld have liked to see that but that part made me wonder what they were thinking! Truly a great movie though
  2. I was sad enough hearing about it on the radio, seeing it on the news this morning, seeing those poor kids and the bodies. I lost it!
  3. Mabey next month I will try to be 1st hahahahaha! Here gettting my baby boy ready for pre-k a little nostalgic...does anyone have a tissue?
  4. I am late...as usual. I am usually not this late when someone joins my own fleet though. New Record! Welcome Alric!

    Oh, God!

    I hate remakes!!!!!!
  6. I absolutely loved this show! I am all over getting the DVD when it's available.
  7. I hate when they do stuff like this, especially after the sequels blew! I won't be wasting my time on this one.
  8. Sounds like I would need a box of tissue!
  9. I have slipped back about 15 years and have been dusting off my NWA tapes...yes I said tapes. I think it's because I am 6 months from the big 35. And before anyone comments I know....."Rubbish"
  10. I have fallen in and been stopped by a closed cover..a bit of a pain but not enough to get me upset. I feel bad for you guys. Since I have been training my son, I am more confused about you guys than ever....when to sit when to stand, what to do in the morning if you're "happy"! What a trip! I feel bad for those German men!
  11. I am torn between the 2nd and 3rd. I like the red eyes but the second on is really cool.
  12. Jag for President 2008!!! Why not? This election is like pin the tale on the j'kass. Oh wait! That loooks like I am calling him one. What I mean is...not having a career in president stuff behind you!
  13. No good. I pay a 5% state sales tax already, in order to make up for the fed income tax paid by all in my state, the sales tax would have to at least double. I also currently do not pay a sales tax on food, if the national sales tax added a tax to food then I cannot see how this could possibly help me. Is there a place to learn more about the proposed tax?

Quote: To expect anyone to give you a $15-$20 an hour job just because you're a single parent (male or female) with kids and don't wanna work two-three jobs to support "your" family is no one's problem but yours. If you can find a $15-$20 an hour job that's great, if not, you gotta do what you gotta do. Simple as that. _________________________________________________ You are missing the point. I would work 10 jobs for my kids, what I find is unfair is people losing high paying jobs only to replace them with 3 low paying and then hear people boast that emoployment is up. Also the fact that you need a $20 + dollar an hour job to raise two kids and have a home. As far as the whole single parent comment is concerned, it is happening to happily married men and women too, be careful not to generalize, it may make you sound like a jerk.

  16. I think the death penalty doesn't deter crime stickly becasue we never seem to kill them. As far as getting innocent people to confess to crimes. i believe the whole system needs to be reviewed and revamped. The senseless murders over senseless things. Don't kill your wife and claim you were insane, kill yourseld, or better yet get divorced. Don't want your girlfriend cuz she is knocked up, don't kill her, use protection. Think someone stole your Xbox, steal it back or buy a new one. There have been senseless stupid murders and shooting occuring in Boston as of late, for no reason. Kids are driving down the street shooting. People are again afraid to step foot in the area. Something has to be done. Something extreme, here and everywhere else.
  17. I say rape em' back. If he forcebly put something where he wasn't invited he gets it back.

I am trying to remeber what I was watching when that thought originally popped into my head it may have been "Meet the Press" or MSNBC or CNN not sure. I know it was a Sunday. I can try and find a source to b/u my finding. Or is it you are goint to tell me the stations and broadcasts are "owned" by specific parties?

  20. Don't you think a speedy end to the guilty would deter any inoccents from confessing? I do. Besides that who are these people?
  21. Sorry Lost, I have been too busy stuffing and mailing the Kerry for President bumper stickers Quote: ________________________________________________ I suggest they come to NY. Mcdonalds and alot of other companies are always looking for workers. _________________________________________________ Are you telling me it is totally exceptable to lose a $20.00 an hour job to flip burgers for $7.00 per hour? If I got laid off I could easily go back to being a Nursing Assistant for $7.65 per hour but even with extra shifts and hand me downs, I won't be able feed my kids. I want to see a President re-examine the credit card companies or why a house that cost $146000.00 7 years ago could be sold for $369000.00 now. Kerry's wife is a Heinz by marrige, I don't know the details of what she owns or what part of the business she is involved with, but I am pretty sure Kerry doesn't get much say as a second husband. Jag...when I am unemoployeed and wrokinf in the nursing home full time, I will gladly add a few hours at target...but do you honestly think that is right? or that someone should brag about employment being up? That is nothing to brag about. I do agree with you on how people take advantage and want a free ride, so focus on that don't cut music from my kids school carriculum. (sp?) and there my spelling issues are why I can't home school... I don't oppose the war, I just feel we should level them and leave. Heartless? perhaps. My mother would like to disown me for those statements. My finall observation, or thought is...I hve been listening to various arguments between Republicans and Democrats...why is it that a Republican will tell a Dem that they are stupid and have "no idea what you are talking about" yet a Democrat will continue to make the point without being outwardly rude? I used to read these posts and tell myself not to respond becasuse you guys know more than me...I have decided, no matter how dumb I may sound...I am a true representation of a lot of 30 something women who vote.

  23. I truly belive in "an eye for an eye" I have problems with the whole "rights" thing. If you are guilty and say you are guilty then done...you are guilty. They admitted they are guilty of taking bats and knives to people as they slept. A poor family not 50 miles from me had to provided dental records becasue their daughter was soo badly beaten they can't positively identify her....for a G.D video game?!? My problem with the "rights" is it takes wayyy too long to long to convict people and wayyy wayyy toooo long to kill the guys on death row. When there is no doubt of guilt it should be faster.
