Trick Saweetie. Brick Mason Gucci Mane. Deadstar 2 Smokepurpp. From the Beginning to End Donnie. Lil Wop.This despite the impelling political show put on by Congressional and White House social conservatives that's hijacked the news for a week. Dave Reichert, Republican from the 8th District was busy all day on the radio defending his vote against it.
Both had deep feelings that transcended reason for voting the way they did. Conservatives, they claimed, were the stalwart bulwarks of reason and we were weak, touchy-feely lady-boys ruled by our wives, the vagaries of hysteria and momentary fits of sentiment. Now Republicans have let loose the dogs of feelings.
The hypocrisy is stunning. The Bush Congress is still trying to kill or maim these life-affirming programs. These are the zealots trying to bust Roe V. These are the folks who are stopping stem cell research, a lifegiving technology that gives hope to someone like Terri Schiavo.
Bush ignored pleas to show mercy on Tucker by the likes of the Pope, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, one of his own daughters, most of the civilized world and Bianca Jagger.
They pled: couldn't she spend the rest of her life helping other prisoners change their lives? But no. A deaf ear and an "eye for an eye" won the day and after taking it to the Lord in prayer, the pious Christian Governor George W.
Inin an unguarded moment during the presidential campaign, Bush shocked conservative Tucker Carlson by derisively mimicking and mocking Karla Faye Tucker. Carlson later said he lost all respect for Bush, the man he'd been most impressed with in the campaign.
And neither is a brave judiciary--if you wanna pray for someone, today, pray none of these "we-choose-life" bigots shoot a judge. Digg This Save to del. Right on. This opinion piece is so good! I think the only thing left out is the fact the pro-life people are making death threats once again! It bothers me, however, that New York Vinnie, who is filling in for Alan Prell yesterday and today, seems totally unaware of the facts as presented even on the other KIRO talk shows.
He fell for the phony video released to the TV news showing Schiavo reacting to someone. It's simply not so. Erin Hart said it was time-lapse.
Someone else said it was from long ago. The thing is, Vinnie keeps saying it shows life, falling into the trap, unaware that her brain has been pronounced dead.

After that it was purchased by National museum Stockholm. The painting with two gloomy boys carrying an angel on a stretcher with bandaged forehead and a bloodied wing makes people curious in a second. The composition is still considered as one of the finest work of art sinceand it is in the same year it was produced by Finnish symbolist painter Hugo Simberg.
The painting was a source of strength for Simberg, as he had been suffering from meningitis from a very long time. The woman in the painting was suffering from a muscular disorder that prevented her from hiking. However, she was still doing an effort to get to the farmhouse that was situated quite far off.
The challenge here for the artist was to do impartiality to her extraordinary conquest of life which most people would consider hopeless. The beautiful painting with a deep meaning and desire to achieve is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The four characters in the painting are isolated and disconnected from their environment despite being in a chic environment.
On the outside it looks that the man and woman are holding hands however on closer inspection they are not even looking at each other.
The other two characters also look like talking to each other however they are not. The painting was bought immediately after it was completed by Hopper by the Art Institute of Chicago which remains there till date.
Although Hopper claimed that the location was real however people were not able to find any such restaurant. The painting gives an idea that everyone in this world is alone since the characters are disconnected and placed in an ambiguous relationship.
This masterpiece was produced in Haldankar was stuck with the idea of painting it on an Indian Festival Diwali — The festival of lights; when he saw his daughter in a beautiful Indian outfit saree with a candle in one hand and her other hand protecting the flame from the wind.
Haldankar made his daughter Geeta the subject of his painting and immortalized her on painted handmade paper using water colors. Water colors were used deliberately by Haldankar since he wanted to prove that he can make a painting without any mistakes. Oil colors can be erased however it is not possible with water colors.
Haldankar celebrated women in this painting of his with the use of color and the subject — his third daughter. The lavender in the saree represents grace and the gold color defines royal touch. The effect of the painting is heightened with the shadow behind the subject. Salvator Mundi, the 66 cm x 45 cm long and wide artwork was created in century by Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo.
The medium oil painting depicts Jesus as a savior of world, making the sign of the cross with his right hand, while holding a transparent crystal globe in his left. The painting is called to be a copy of a lost and original one, which was rediscovered and restored, and included in a major Leonardo exhibition at the National Gallery, London, in It is a new record for the most expensive painting ever sold at a public auction.
Unfortunately intwo thieves broke into the museum and stole it with 12 other artworks. Sadly, it is still missing. This theft is still considered as one of the biggest art thefts in the US history.

The scene featuring primary colors of yellow, blue and their combinations, illustrates the affection of dog with nature. Marc was known for painting animals, as he felt they were pure and closer to God. Of all his popular creations, this was very intimate and close to his heart.The parents of Jahi McMath are receiving financial backing from a foundation started by another family famous for their battle to keep their child on life support.
Jahi McMath suffered complications after having her tonsils removed, causing her heart to stop and massive brain damage that the hospital say is so severe that she is effectively dead. The case of Terri Schiavo became famous in the late s and early s when her husband attempted to remove her feeding tube against the wishes of her parents. Terri Schiavo had suffered a heart attack in after which her husband cared for her, until when he filed a petition to have her feeding tube removed. Michael Schiavo claimed that it was his wife's wish to 'pull the plug', and after several years fighting her family in court, Terri's feeding tube was removed in Terri Schiavo's parents set up the foundation in to fight for Terri's case and now the organisation is devoted to helping families of incapacitated patients facing a loss of life support.
Jahi underwent a tonsillectomy at Children's Hospital Oakland last month to treat sleep apnea. Her mother Nailah Winkfield, believes her daughter can recover and is fighting plans to turn off her ventilator. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, she said watching her daughter suffering will haunt her forever.
She knew something was wrong. To see your daughter like that is just heartbreaking. In fact I have more than hope. I am positive my daughter is going to wake up. I talk to her about it all the time. Tragic: This is Jahi McMath's eight grade photograph left and another school photograph is seen right - the happy teen suffered brain damage after complications from routine surgery to remove her tonsils in early December.
Mrs Winkworth, 34, a Home Depot worker, was comforted by her husband Marvin, 33, a truck driver, as she sat on the wall outside the hospital which she has not left since December 9th when the complications occurred. I have not been home since December 9th, I have been sleeping in the waiting room.
I cannot leave Jahi. She said that the way the hospital has treated her daughter and the family has been 'disgusting'.
It is disrespectful. It is disgusting. They refer to her as the deceased, or the body, or the dead and my daughter is not dead. Backing: Terri Schaivo was at the center of a right-to-life debate that captivated the United States for several years in the late 90s and early s, and a foundation set up in her name is supporting Jahi's family.
Mrs Winkfield, who has three other children, said all she wanted to do was get her daughter away from the hospital to a place that cared for her. She said she feels a mixture of anger, sadness and guilt. She was scared. That is why I feel guilty. Wedding: This photograph shows Jahi McMath right at the wedding of her step-father Marvin Winkfield 2nd right to her mother Naliah not pictured - also in this photograph are Mariana Winkfield left and her grandmother Sandra Chatman 2nd left.
Tragedy: Jahi McMath, 13, was declared legally brain-dead after undergoing a routine tonsil removal that dosctors suggested as a means of eliminating her sleep apnea. The operation must be carried out before a care facility can take her in. I just have to keep faith. I just want to get her away from here.
