Politics- Mosque at Ground Zero

So since this will be my first official week back I would like to bring in a big controversy flying in our faces right now. Should the Obama Administration allow the Muslims to build a mosque at Ground Zero?

Most Americans say no, they feel it is insensitive to the families of those killed in the 9/11 attacks. But after being polled some of the families decided in the name of peace they didn't care. Well, I think they should care. I don't think any church or religion has the right to put a building so close to the site of thousands of deaths. It's just wrong, none have the right to turn a place of such mourning into a place of worship. I think some are taking it too far in saying that it's all the Muslims fault that it even happened. That's not true. The Muslim people were not the ones that rammed planes into our buildings, it was Al Queda. A Muslim extremist group, not the entire Muslim population.

I personally think they shouldn't allow the building to be put up, I believe that is a place of mourning and rememberance, not the right place to have a joyful worship service. I do think it was insensitive of the Muslims who choose to put there Mosque up there. Can they not find another building spot? The families deserve a place to go and remember the ones they loved at that sight. They shouldn't have to go through the pain of seeing the place of worship of the religion from which the group that commited the crime derived itself from. If they so choose they shouldn't have to deal with any religious group of people. They were the ones who lost loved ones, not those going to be worshipping at the Mosque. I'm pretty sure that there were people of many different backgrounds who died in those towers, so why do the Muslims get the oppertunity to build their worship building on the site? I mean how up in arms would we be if a Southern Baptist church choose to build a building there? People would throw a fit! But in the name of perserving our diversity and being peaceful with the nations of the Middle East we sit back and allow this to happen. Um, well, a few alarms go off in my head about the wrongness of this. I personally say that it is unfair to the people who died and their families and friends to build a place of worship so close to this place of mourning. I say no! What do you say? Let me know either on the poll or leave a comment. Or if you'd like to keep your oppinion private shoot me an e-mail at We would love to hear from you.

Books- Alex Rider #2

Yup, I'm writing about Alex Rider...again. Well, I decided to write about it again because I'm rereading them. I already read the whole series but I decided to write again. Anyway, at this moment I'm reading Snakehead. It's really exciting and is amazingly written. I love they way it's written! But Snakehead is a really good book. I'm on chapter 10 (my book marks there). Chapter 9 is so freaky, evidently he's trying escape from _________ (to find out what it is you have to read it) and he had to go under a lakeside building. He ends up being surrounded but of all creature...RATS!!! I forget what exact kind of rats but that's gross! It makes me cringe every time I think about it. Some stuff is really exciting, and some stuff makes me want to gag. It's just an amazing!

Movies- Letters to Juliet

Okay, I know, I know, this has been out of theaters for a little while. But I haven't had time to blog on it, and I really wanted to. This movie recieves 4 1/2 stars, it was excellent. The only thing that I did not like was that I wanted more about the letter writing process and it didn't give it to me. But it was otherwise a fabulous movie, just terrific. The plot was excellent, the actors were good, and best of all the music was pretty darn amazing. Being a huge Taylor Swift fan myself, it made the movie all the better. There were some parts that kind of dragged, but otherwise. I was very pleased with this movie. I was in love with the characters and the history in the movie. It was amazing to me to get to see the beauty displayed in the movie. It made me want to go to Italy! (Well, I sorta already wanted to go there. ;) I enjoyed everything about the movie, it was a sweet, romantic, definte chick flick, it was funny, but not to the point of being dumb slap stick humor. (No one getting walloped with a hammer, not a person being slapped with a 2 by 4 and there wasn't anyone who fell down a hole or got thrown into a swimming pool! :) So I advise for you to rent this from Redbox, order it from Netflix, or get it from your local movie store. It was one of the best movies I think I've seen in a long time! I very much enjoyed it!

TV Shows- A-Team

Remember, this is the old TV show not the new movie. I heard that the movie was horrible! One of the actors that was in the old TV show said they ruined it.
I love the old TV Show. I'm watching it right now and I'm giggling like crazy. Well, it's super old so if your all about the technology stuff it's okay. We agreed that it's a mix of the old TV Show MacGyver and a new TV Show Leverage. It's funny! There are normally 5 characters:
  • John "Hannibal" Smith- now he is the main guy. He is the head of it all. He is the main person who brings them all together. His favorite saying "I love it when a plan comes together." And he usually says it when they finish something and it isn't perfect. He's the colonel.
  • H.M. "Howlin' Mad" Murdock- one thing you need to know about Murdock is that he really is insane. Most of the time when they have a mission one of the other guys has to break him out of one of those hospitals and that is the most fun part about it. He's the captain.
  • Templeton "Face Man" Peck- He's one of my favorites. He's hilarious! Of course, he's one of those guys who flirts with every girl with blue eyes and legs. He usually does the cons and such during stuff. His favorite saying is "Not the face!" I still think that is funny. He is mainly their con-artist. He is a lieutenant.
  • B.A. Baracus- B.A. is the buff guy that does most of the bone breaking. He's really funny because he can't stand Murdock because he's insane and does dumb stuff. One time he (Murdock) found an alligator and goofed off with it, and one time he pretended that he was a movie director and he was filming their mission (no camera)
  • Sometimes they a girl who isn't supposed to have anything to do with them but they are switched around a lot and she usually doesn't show.

Well, that's a lot. Another thing you need to know about them is they are convicts. They are army or something and they got framed for robbing a bank, but they escaped from a big jail-ish thing. I'm not really sure about it. Anyway, that's mainly what I am doing right now. Now a lot of you must think I'm a nut but some stuff is really funny the only thing that bugs me is that nobody dies. Even guys who's car flips they show them getting out. I really like it and it's really close to Leverage because during their spare time they help people. Well, anyone who can find them.

So Jeggings, their about as lame as you can get. If u want a pair of jeans dont be lazy and buy a pair of leggings with jean print on them... buy a freaken pair of jeans. Now if your doing this for comfort I can sort of understand :/ but if u have the money I know an amazing brand of jeans (only a hundred dollars >.<) that feel like your wearing a cloud around your booty! Let me just say I'm saving up money to buy a pair of the jeans that feel like sweats! Ahhh! Amazing! And yes, I've tried on a pair, let me just say their delicious! And the white stitching is sooo cute!!

Until later my loves <3
