Ghost Whisperer - Don't Read If You Haven't Seen Last Night's Episode!

Spoiler Alert: This article discusses the Ghost Whisperer episode from last night (November 7th). If you don't want to know what happens, stop reading now.

To the writers of Ghost Whisperer: You guys suck - big time!

One, you killed off Jim. Why would you do that? The whole premise of the show is someone who talks to ghosts with a lovely understanding husband. You've taken away the best part of the whole show. Jim can't hang around as a ghost.

And,two, that sixth sense, "look at me" nonsense when he died was just stupid. You couldn't write it any better than that? Aren't you supposed to be professionals? He's going to be all right, but the nurse mentions the one thing that could go wrong and it does. Dumb, Dumb, and Dumb. He deserved better than that.

And, three, what a shitty thing to do to the characters. Not only has Melinda lost her husband, but if I remember Jim's family history, his mother is now burying a second son. Haven't these people lost enough? Which brings me to point four.

Four: No baby? Melinda now goes through life without a piece of her husband -- the love of her life? No baby. Yeah, that's the way it happens in real life, spouses lose their partners all the time and are left with nothing but memories, but I don't watch TV to see real life, I watch TV to see things that'll never happen to me. So, not having Melinda pregnant is just stupid and dumb. Plus, you've lost the coolness of her passing her gift to her child. And, don't try putting Melinda with some other guy, because I can't see that happening.

Now, Cheryl tells me we have to watch the next episode, so I will, but pretty much -- you've lost a fan.

Jerks.

God Bless

Least of these My brethren...

"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holyangels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'

"Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

"Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'
"Then they also will answer Him,saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

For those of you who voted in AR, CA and Florida to deny gay people the right to marry and adopt, you are the ones on the left. For you had the opportunity to give to your fellow human being the rights, freedoms, acceptance and equality that you enjoy and you chose to turn your back and under some misguided idea chose not to give. I feel sorry for you; for you have not been paying attention to Jesus's words and message. You're lost and wandering in a desert of hatred and fear. I can only pray for two things: 1) you see the error of your ways and ask God for forgiveness and 2) if you do not do the first, that God has mercy on your souls.

For my gay brothers and sisters, we have lost a few battles, but we have not lost the war. Growing up, I was told that there wouldn't be a black President and just look at where we are today. There is hope for if we lose hope, we've lost it all. We will prevail in our quest to be treated equally to our fellow Americans. For Jesus said: "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

We may not have our equality here on Earth, but in the eyes of Jesus we are loved and in Heaven our reward will be great.

God Bless

The Morning After

I didn't stay up last night to watch Obama's speech, but I did watch McCain's. I thought he gave an eloquent and well thought out speech. I like John McCain, even if I disagree with him. His speech last night reminded me of why I like John McCain.

There are three reasons I didn't vote for John McCain:

1. He said he didn't believe in gay people adopting children. People who think that are too narrow minded -- yes, Arkansas, I'm speaking to you -- to be able to think clearly.

2. His healthcare plan.

3. Sarah Palin.

Here's what I'm hoping will now happen to the Republican Party while they're at home licking their wounds. Maybe, they'll try to get back to the Republican Party of Lincoln and Roosevelt. Maybe, they'll come back even stronger and with fiscal responsibility on their lips. I love it when an uninformed moron says to me that Democrats are tax and spend while we have the highest deficit ever.

Obama has a long way to go to help fix our broken America. We didn't allow our nation to be torn to pieces overnight and we won't be able to fix it that way, either.

I like the way McCain said he's going to work with Obama. I like that he said we're all Americans, because that's what is important. If we all work together, we can build this great lady back to the shining nation she once was.

God Bless

I Voted -- Did You?

I leaped out of bed this morning because today is election day! This is the most important day of any American's life. This is the day we join together to decide who will make the government decisions for ourselves. Anyone who has been following my blog will not be surprised to find out that I voted for Obama. I wasn't surprised that the line was long. Nor, was I surprised at how friendly everyone was.

What actually surprised me is that there were two positions in Racine -- Register of Deeds and Country Treasurer -- that only had a Republican running.

Are these the only two people qualified in all of Racine County for the positions?

Next time, a Democrat needs to step up to the plate and run. What good is an election if no one ran against you? And, does anyone know what happens when the voter votes straight party and that party doesn't have a candidate?

God Bless
