...a sad day for us all...the murder of an abortion doctor while he was at church is wrong and will have consequences...it was cold blooded murder...just as the murder of five...six...and seven month old developing babies is still murder.

the murderers will ultimately be judged by a higher energy.

...so the trouble was just gitmo...oh...okay.  so move the prisoners at gitmo to other prisons around the country...oh..okay.

...if that is the problem...bush in true "bad cop" form basically held in captivity in cuba..radical guerrillas for seven years probably tickling al quedah and taunting the organization's radicalized religious war freaks.

...so now they are going to be put in jails around the country...

oh...okay...but drag it on for a while, though and use it as smokescreen.

...good. :)

Obama's first victory went beyond luck
By H.D.S. Greenway


April 14, 2009

 WITH THE RESCUE of Captain Richard Phillips from a pirate-filled lifeboat in the Indian Ocean, President Obama has survived the first dramatic crisis of his administration with colors flying. All the world was watching to see how a new, untested president would react to one of the most elemental tests of any president: how to handle the public kidnapping of an American citizen being held for ransom. The deeper crises he faces are long-term ones and will not be resolved so easily, but the success of Easter Sunday will make it all a little easier politically.

Obama was lucky that it was only one American, and not a whole embassy full as in Tehran 30 years ago - a crisis that ended with the hostages being released after 444 days and a failed rescue mission, but ended any chance that President Carter would have a second term.

Obama was lucky, too, in that he was dealing with pirates beyond the law of any nation, not a sovereign state, and on the open ocean and not among the warrens of a hostile town. The whole incident was over in a matter of days, not months.

It takes nothing away from the skill of the US Navy Seal sharpshooters to say there was a good deal of luck that the incident did not end in tragedy. If the pirates had not gotten careless and showed themselves - perhaps they thought they were protected by darkness - there might have been days of national mourning for an undoubted hero.

Obama's handling of the affair went beyond luck, however. He didn't heed the advice of those on the left who said the pirates were only businessmen of sorts and that ransom should be paid, as is the custom. Nor did he bluster and threaten the way Teddy Roosevelt famously did over the kidnapping of an American, Ion Perdicaris, by a Moroccan bandit named Mulai Ahmed Raisuli 105 years ago. The statement that America wanted "Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead" electrified the Republican convention in Chicago that year, and if there was any hesitation over TR's renomination before, there was none after.

TR sent warships to Tangier, but the matter was resolved when the Moroccan government paid the ransom. That Perdicaris had renounced his American citizenship years before was kept a secret. The Perdicaris incident was recalled in right-wing blogs last week before the Phillips rescue, almost wishing that Obama would be found wanting. But Obama never said "Captain Phillips alive or Somali pirates dead." As it was, he got both.

There could not be two more different men than Roosevelt, the greatest political showman of his age, and no-drama Obama. But by sensibly not urging a surrender to pirate demands, and leaving it to the officers of the USS Bainbridge to decide when and if to use lethal force, Obama won the day. US bombers are not raining down death on Somali villages, nor is a shameful tribute being paid - neither overreaction, nor under-reaction. There was a certain symmetry, too, in the rescue ship USS Bainbridge being named for William Bainbridge, one of the American Navy officers who helped suppress piracy on the Barbary Coast of Africa 200 years ago.

The Somali problem persists, however, and, as the pirates threaten, they may seek revenge against Americans or other foreigners. Memories of "Black Hawk Down" and the failure of other expeditionary forces in Somalia stay the hands of those who would go in with Marines and clear the pirates out. Casualties among noncombatants would be high, and Somalia is the quintessential failed state with little chance of beneficial change anytime soon.

An answer could lie in a convoy system for merchant ships, which would make it easier for navies to guard them than with shipping spread out and uncoordinated over vast stretches of ocean. Perhaps an exclusion zone far out to sea in which fishing vessels would be banned might help, as pirates use fishing boats to stalk their prey.

The current situation of pirates getting richer and richer on ransoms, and ranging farther and farther out to sea to disrupt shipping and taking hostages, however, is no longer acceptable, and never should have been.

What are Indigo and Crystal Children ?

Celia Fenn

How do you know if you, or someone you know, is an Indigo or Crystal Child or Adult?
We will describe the main features and characteristics of these people. But we want to stress that the Indigo/Crystal phenomenon is the next step in our evolution as a human species. We are all, in some way, becoming more like the Indigo and Crystal people. They are here to show us the way, and so the information can be applied more generally to all of us as we make the transition to the next stage of our growth and evolution.

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and wayshowers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing abilities and degrees of technological and creative sophistication.

The Crystal Children began to appear on the planet from about 2000, although some date them slightly earlier. These are extremely powerful children, whose main purpose is to take us to the next level in our evolution, and reveal to us our inner power and divinity. They function as a group consciousness rather than as individuals, and they live by the" Law of One" or Unity Consciousness. They are a powerful force for love and peace on the planet.

The Indigo and Crystal Adults are composed of two groups. Firstly, there are those who were born as Indigos and are now making the transition to Crystal. This means they undergo a spiritual and physical transformation that awakens their "Christ" or "Crystal" consciousness and links them with the Crystal children as part of the evolutionary wave of change. The second group is those who were born without these qualities, but have aquired or are in the process of aquiring them through their own hard work and the diligent following of a spiritual path. Yes, this means that all of us have the potential to be part of the emerging group of "human angels".

The following extract describes the difference between Indigo and Crystal Children. It is from Doreen Virtue's article Indigo and Crystal Children:

The first thing most people notice about Crystal Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years. Their eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for the child to see. Perhaps you've noticed this special new "breed" of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful and forgiving. This generation of new lightworkers, roughly ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed ... and its a good direction!

The older children (approximately age 7 through 25), called "indigo Children", share some characteristics with the Crystal Children. Both generations are highly sensitive and psychic, and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament. Indigos have a warrior spirit, because their collective purpose is to mash down old systems that no longer serve us. They are here to quash government, educational, and legal systems that lack integrity. To accomplish this end, they need tempers and fiery determination.

Those adults who resist change and who value conformity may misunderstand the Indigos. They are often mislabeled with psychiatric diagnoses of Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Sadly, when they are medicated, the Indigos often lose their beautiful sensitivity, spiritual gifts and warrior energy..........In contrast, the Crystal Children are blissful and even-tempered. Sure, they may have tantrums occasionally, but these children are largely forgiving and easy-going. The Crystals are the generation who benefit from the Indigos trailblazing. First, the Indigo Children lead with a machete, cutting down anything that lacks integrity. Then the Crystal Children follow the cleared path, into a safer and more secure world.

The terms "Indigo" and "Crystal" were given to these two generations because they most accurately describe their aura colours and energy patterns. Indigo children have a lot of indigo blue in their auras. This is the colour of the "third eye chakra", which is the energy center inside the head located between the two eyebrows. This chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions, and spirits. Many of the Indigo children are clairvoyant

The Crystal Children have opalescent auras, with beautiful multi-colours in pastel hues. This generation also shows a fascination for crystals and rocks......

Indigo Children can sense dishonesty, like a dog can sense fear. Indigos know when they're being lied to,

DNA test pending in case of 13-year-old father
16 hours ago

LONDON (AP) The spokesman for a 13-year-old who reportedly fathered a child says a DNA test will be performed to identify the dad for certain.

The test comes after a Sunday tabloid newspaper reported that other teenage boys had come forward claiming to be the father of the newborn baby girl.

Family spokesman Max Clifford said Monday the boy still believes the week-old baby girl is his. But his parents want a DNA test as soon as possible to be certain.

The teenager's 15-year-old girlfriend gave birth to the baby girl last week in Eastbourne, 70 miles (110 kilometers) southeast of London. The couple made headlines in Britain when the fresh-faced boy posed on the front page of the Sun newspaper with the baby.
