    Heh heh, you wish...the only way I listen to their so-called music is when it's parodied by Wierd Al. I'm more of a classic rock fan....KISS, Pink Floyd, Scorpions...that sort of thing.

    Have you heard the "Moments of Glory" CD? I saw them perform it live with the San Jose Symphony Orcestra in San Francisco at the Cow Palace (Don't laugh, it's a real place).

    I have seen some of their stuff on Youtube. I remember the 80's ,early 90's when rock/heavy metal was all over radio,and television and had very little pop,rap music back in those days. Back in those days the only way to see nonstop rap back in 1990 was on BET.

    This is something I just can't get past. I was in their shoes, I also had a stillborn baby. There was a small funeral with just family and a couple of very close friends. The thought of taking the dead body home for a while with me is just way too creepy and morbid and something I would have punched my husband out for if he'd even suggesting such a thing. I agree it was a good thing to let their other children be involved in seeing the body and understanding what had happened, but it would have been a bit more normal to have taken them in for a private family viewing at the funeral home.

    Exactly right.

    Yeah, but I am also looking past that goal at the day after we boot the Kenyan out of our house. Look beyond election day to when the new president is in the drivers seat. Who is going to be the best person, Rick or Mitt, to run this country like a business and get it back on track and profitable again. Rick is a good person and a godly man and all that. You might rather have him for a next door neighbor that Mitt. But nice and squeaky clean is not what we need right now. We need someone like Mitt who has the business focus and sense to turn things around without trying to save our souls and preach to us at the same time.

    This is a job application and we've been interviewing the applicants for some time now. It's down to the top two applicants. You can't let a personal bias based on religion, age, family life, home state, looks, etc sway or cloud your judgement. You have to look at the job description, and then decide which of the two applicants has the best qualifications and experience to fill the job.

    Here's a homework assignment. Given the situation this country is in write out on paper a job description and a help wanted ad you'd run if you were the USA HR director. Then honestly look at the resume of both men and decide who is most qualified and experienced to fill the job. I want a sharp businessman with turn around experience who can get us out of debt and back in the black. Mitt is the one I'd hire.

    Normal? Yes. Creepy? Maybe. Unheard of? No. This used to be the way it was handled and the funeral home if used was used after the family was done for final disposition of the body.

    This sounds a bit extreme and I believe Rick would see his personal religious views as unproductive. As for preaching, I believe most of this is pre-election media attacks and Rick needs a good team around him to counter this crap.

    None of that clouds my judgement. I see Rick as more honest than Slick Romney. That alone is reason enough to support him over Romney who cannot stand on principle.

    You have to look at the job description, and then decide which of the two applicants has the best qualifications and experience to fill the job.
    Or look at character traits that are a non starter, kind of like the way you are looking at Santorum.

    OK, I finished. I looked at both resumes and concluded that Romney looks good but was only filling in the blanks with what HE thought I wanted to read. He also appeared to copy off of several other applicants on matters of true Conservatism. He apparently didnt grasp the concept well enough to "sell" me that he was the man for the job.
    Sure, he has the ability to get the job done while I am watching, but he doesn't seem to posess the character traits that give me the comfort that he will run the business the way the rule book (Constitution) demands.

    I've concluded that I'm not sold on either of the two applicants, but I need to fire the present job holder for negligence and for running the business against the rules and against MY desires. So, I decided that since I'm firing the present employee for his lack of Character and failure to understand or obey the rules, that I'd rather have a person that can at least possess those qualities and hope that he has enough sense to appoint quality people to help turn the business around.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Good points good points all. I know I'm in the minority here for
    picking Mittens over Rick. I'm not avidly out campaigning for
    him and to be honest I'm not even following the campaign news
    as much these days as far as the primary goes. It's clearly down
    to either Mitt or Rick and I will be fully behind whichever ends
    up getting the nomination. But of the two I'll be voting for Mitt.
