Miracle: 8 in 10 Americans Say Prayer Helped Save Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) … Gabby Leaves Hospital & Transferred to Rehab

According to a recent FOX poll, 8 in 10 Americans believe that prayer helped US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) survive following the Tucson shooting that left 6 dead and 13 injured. Not only was her survival a miracle, but Gabby Giffords left the Tucson area hospital yesterday and was transported to a rehab center in Houston, Texas. Who could have ever believed that following the initial reports of Giffords’ shot in the head at point blank range, in critical condition, that in such a short period of time she would have been responsive and out of the hospital?

Less than two weeks after being shot in the head, she is now out of the hospital and off to rehab, that is a miracle.Keep saying your prayers for Gabby … they do make a difference.

Nearly 8 in 10 American voters say they believe prayers helped Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords survive the Tucson shooting, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.

The congresswoman and 18 others were shot on Jan. 8 at a town-hall meeting in Tucson. Her neurosurgeon has called her recovery “miraculous.” Giffords is expected to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility as early as Friday to continue recovering from brain injuries she suffered after being shot in the head.

Seventy-seven percent of voters believe prayers helped save Giffords, while 17 percent don’t believe that. The remaining 6 percent are unsure.

Those most likely to believe prayer saved Giffords include white Born-Again Christians (95 percent), those who regularly attend religious services (91 percent), blacks (91 percent), Republicans (84 percent), Southerners (83 percent) and women (81 percent).

Of course such stories of prayer must just drive certain folks over the edge. Gee, I wonder who those 17% consist of?  As Weasel Zippers states, file this one under stories that make the LEFT wince.

More Political Correctness: CNN Apologizes for Guest Using “CrossHairs” … What Would they Ever Say about George Carlin and his Baseball-Football Skit?

In the immortal words of George Carlin … WTF!!!

How pathetic has political correctness become? CNN actually apologized for a guest using the word “cross-hairs”. Imagine that, that evil, hate monger used the term, “in the cross-hairs”. That gets an apology, but the incorrect and purposely false reporting that Jared Loughner, the alleged Tucson tragedy gunman who killed six was a right-wing Tea Party member gets nothing. This is the message that the MSM has learned from the Tucson tragedy? One would think there would be a greater look into mental health and the ability to “target” mentally disturbed people sooner capable of violence.

Would CNN take add $’s from Target?

With the PC hysteria, the media might want to start with themselves. So metaphors of CNN’s choice are now deemed bad. Just curious, in a CNN board room have they ever stated they would target a certain demographic or would CNN ever accept commercial ad space from TARGET?

 

From Real Clear Politics:

HCNN’s John King: “Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term ‘in the crosshairs’ in talking about the candidates. We’re trying, we’re trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he’s covered politics for a long time, but we’re trying to get away from that kind of language.”

Classic Values is not so many words tells CNN and John King where to stick is apologizing for free speech.

 What would CNN ever do with comedian George Carlin and his skit on Baseball vs. Football? The comic classic would be watered down to mere dribble if CNN and the rest of the pathetic MSM had their PC way. Would they be apologizing ffor the following, “Football is played on a gridiron, in a stadium, sometimes called Soldier Field or War Memorial Stadium“. Oh no, Carlin said war, we must apologize. Then there is this horrible comic line that has caused so many madmen to take up arms, “Football is rigidly timed, and it will end even if we’ve got to go to sudden death.”So does this mean that in all sports cast, the announcers will no longer be able to use such abusive language like “sudden death”?

 George Carlin, Baseball vs. Football

 

The object in football is to march down field and penetrate enemy territory,
and get into the end zone; in baseball, the object is to go home! “I’m going home!”

And, in football, they have the clip, the hit, the block, the tackle, the blitz, the bomb, the offense and the defense;
in baseball, they have.. the sacrifice.

It is unbelievable that freedom of speech and the political correctness police have come to this. What a sad state of affairs. Will CNN print a manual of acceptable words that can be used on their air without having to sit in the corner in time out if used? Just curious, how many shooting sprees was George Carlin responsible for?

Shooting Victim Eric Fuller Apologizes for “You are Dead” Threat to Tea Party Leader Trent Humphries

63 year old Eric Fuller, the Tucson, AZ shooting victim who was arrested for make a death threat against tea party leader Trent Humphries has apologized for his comments. Fuller was taken into custody following the taping of ABC’s town hall event,  “An American Conversation Continued” after Fuller said to Humphries … “you are dead”. Fuller was involuntarily committed to a county mental health facility following his death threat,

Dorothy DeRuyter, a companion of Fuller’s, provided CNN with a statement.

“I would like to tender my sincerest apologies to Mr. (Trent) Humphries for my misplaced outrage on Saturday at the St. Odelia’s town meeting,” Fuller said in the statement. “It was not in the spirit of our allegiance and warm feelings to each other as citizens of our great country.”

Dorothy DeRuyter went on to say that Fuller “is apologetic and very sad” about his outburst, he wishes he could go back and do things differently.” I am sure he does; however, making a death threat following the Tucson tragedy allegedly at the hands of Jared  Loughner that left 6 dead was hardly the words one would want to use to further to discussion.

Return of the Jedi … Sarah Palin Says to Liberal MSM, “I Am Not Going to Shut Up”

The Momma Grizzly responds …

During an interview last night on Fox News, Sarah Palin stated to Sean Hannity that despite the constant attacks by Democrats and the liberal MSM, “I am not going to shut up.” Those who respectfully and rightfully petition their government for change cannot make us sit down or shut up. Getting rid of respectful dissent would destroy our Republic. You do not use a tragedy to try and stifle political debate.

 

Those of you on the LEFT might want to listen to her words. A stifling of free speech might just be one days be yours as well. The full interview can be seen at Sean Hannity.

Yet Another Poll that States that Sarah Palin’s Cross-Hairs & Political Rhetoric Had Little to Do with Tucson Shooting

CNN has yet out another poll looking for blame in the Tucson, AZ shooting tragedy that left 6 dead and 14 wounded. However, once again those polled do not find Sarah Palin’s bulls-eye map or political rhetoric to blame.  Previous polls from CBS and Quinnipiac University confirm the same, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Fox News had little to do with Jared Loughner’s evil acts.

“But while a large majority predict that tragedy in Tucson will lead to more civility in political debates, only one in ten think that change will be permanent,” adds Holland. “Seven in ten say politicians will tone it down in the short run but the change won’t last very long, and 18 percent think there will be no change at all.”

Seven out of ten blame the resources available to deal with people who may be mentally ill as a contributing factor to the shooting.

According to the poll, the public doesn’t blame Sarah Palin’s website for the incident in Arizona. Only a third of all Americans say that the website – which had an image that looked like the crosshairs of a gun marking Gifford’s congressional district – deserves a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. The former Alaska governor put the website up last year during the debate over health care reform, to highlight 20 congressional districts won by Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election, where Democratic representatives were voting in favor of the legislation.

Full poll can be read HERE (pdf).

More from Weasel Zippers and the 35% of loons who continue to have PDS and believe all that has been disproved and the fact that there is zero evidence that Loughner had ever seen Palin’s bullseye map. Even more pathetic, 56% of Democrats believe the bulls-eye map myth. How is there supposed to be this so-called change in political discourse if more than one 1/2 of a party polled lives in an alternate universe and is so consumed with hate and Palin Derangement Syndrome, that they will believe all that has been disproved? But when you have a MSM and Pima County Sheriff with an agenda from minute one disseminating false information and their own opinions in place of facts …

Christina Taylor Green, 9 Year-Old Tucson, AZ Shooting Victim’s Organs Donated to Boston, MA Girl

From something terrible and of unspeakable evil, comes something good and beautiful … Christina Taylor Green makes a difference beyond her years.

“She wanted to make a difference in her life. She wanted to make her mark, and she did so in so powerful a way that even she cannot imagine,” said Bishop Gerald Kicanas during his homily.

 

Billy Joel’s “Lullaby” was played at the mass of 9 year old Christina Taylor Green

Goodnight my angel now it’s time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

Someday we’ll all be gone But lullabies go on and on
They never die that’s how you and I will be

Make no mistake about it folks, good always conquers over evil.From something terrible always comes something good. Such is the case of the eye-tearing and senseless loss of 9 year old Christina Taylor Green whose life was taken far to soon at the hands of an evil madman Jared Loughner. Christina Taylor Green was born on a day of  unimaginable horror, September 11, 2001 and died on another, January 8, 2011 during the Tucson massacre. From the terrible loss of the little 9 year old girl who tugged at our hearts, COMES LIFE. The organs of  Christina-Taylor Green have been donated to a Boston-area child. Christina  Green lives on … and saves lives in death.

Rest in Peace, You made a Wonderful difference

The organs of nine-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, the youngest victim of last week’s shootings in Tucson, Ariz., have been donated to a Boston-area child, her father revealed to The Boston Globe

The Globe reports today that John Green told the newspaper that he received a phone call about the transplant, but does not know any further details about who received his little girl’s organs, or at which hospital.

A spokesman for the New England Organ Bank told the Globe he is unable to comment on donations.

Green told the Globe that the news that his daughter’s organs were able to save the life of another child “really lifted” his spirits, and he and her mother, Roxanna Green are proud of Christina, “who has done another amazing thing.”

Christina has made the greatest difference one could ever make, she has helped save a Boston area girl. She has fulfilled her wish of always wanting to make a difference. Christina’s parents were asked whether they would like to one day meet the girl who received their daughter’s organs … John Green responded and said, “yes, he would, I’d give her a big hug. It’s a blessing”.

Tucson Shooting Update: US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D)  has improved from critical to serious condition. More great news coming from the evils of the Tucson tragedy.

Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell Calls for Early Detection System for Mentally Ill to Prevent purchasing Firearms

During the Sunday talk show, CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell called for an “early detection system” designed to keep mentally unstable individuals from buying guns. So we are going to arbitrarily commit people to mental institutions who we perceive as mentally unstable? Really? Who makes that deceision and where to start. Rendell might want to start with 3/4th of those that post on Left-wing moonbat websites. As Weasel Zippers stated, “Does he realize that under this system liberals won’t be able to buy guns?”

Rendell might want to start with these folks from a moonbat march

Two high-profile politicians today called for sweeping reforms to the nation’s mental health system that would prevent individuals deemed ill from legally purchasing firearms.

Had numerous concerns about alleged gunman Jared Lee Loughner’s mental status placed him on a list restricting his ability to buy a gun, his Jan. 8 rampage might have been prevented, said former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican, and Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, a Democrat.

During a “Face the Nation” appearance, Rendell called for an “early detection system” designed to keep mentally unstable individuals from buying guns.

Giuliani said among the problems that led to the shooting spree, which left six dead and 19 injured, is the nation’s “inability to deal with mental illness.” He urged policy “adjustments” that balance things like an individual’s constitutional right to own firearms with keeping guns out of the hands of unstable people.

Wonder where the ACLU would stand on this one, the guns or the mentally unstable?

Tucson Shooting Victim James Eric Fuller Will Undergo a Mental Health Evaluation after Arrested for Making Death Threats in ABC’s An ‘American Conversation Continued’ … Will MSM Blame Themselves for His Actions?

As if the situation could not get any more strange with the Tucson, AZ shooting and the days that follow … So much for civil discourse and will the MSM blame the LEFT, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and themselves for  J. Eric Fuller’s actions?

Talk about bizarre beyond all comprehension. J. Eric Fuller, a Tucson shooting victim of the hideous Tucson Massacre, has been arrested for make a death threat to a Tea Party spokesman during a taping of ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued.’ He yelled “YOU’RE DEAD”during the taping to Trent Humpries of then AZ Tea Party.    J. Eric Fuller will also under go a mental health evaluation.

A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling “you’re dead” at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.

After all the comments to refrain from harsh rhetoric, to try and be more peaceful, during ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued’ town hall meant to move on from the terrible happenings of one week ago …   J. Eric Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.” WHAT!

KGUN reported that Fuller took exception to comments by Republican state Rep. Terri Proud and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN reported.

Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.”

Some media reports said Fuller kept booing and making other remarks before deputies escorted him from the church.

So let’s understand the craziness. We have a gunman in Jared Loughner who by all accounts is “bat S#it” insane where numerous people have stated that he was a menacing individual and they feared that he would one day bring a gun to class. We have the evil Jared Loughner who was kicked out of a community college after doing the following VIDEO, yet he was never made to take a mental health eval. This evil punk then went on a shooting rampage that leaves 6 dead. We then have a bias sheriff who is agenda driven provide his opinion, rather than facts and evidence that it was political rhetoric from the RIGHT that was to blame, even though he had and there was zero proof.

Now we are witness to one of Loughtner’s shooting victims at a town hall setting meant to move on threaten another with death threats and he is sent for a mental health evaluation. Can it get any stranger? As Powerline states, ”isn’t the only untreated mental patient on the Left. And we haven’t even started talking about the New York Times’s columnists”.

So what will come from  J. Eric Fuller’s verbal death threats? Will the liberal MSM blame themselves for his actions seeing that ever since the evil acts of Jared Loughner, they have blamed the Right, Republicans, talk radio,Sarah Palin, Rush and Glenn Beck.

So who is to blame for  J. Eric Fuller’s death threats … can you say  J. Eric Fuller!!!

Fantastic … US Rep Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) Breathing on Her Own & Off Ventilator

From the LA Times, US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) taken off ventilator. Fantastic news from such a tragic event. With all the negative news, speculation, false accusations, and hideous and senseless acts of violence by gunman Jared Loughner … it is great to se this uplifting and positive news that Gabby Giffords is well on her way on the mend … good luck Gabby and our prayers are with you.

Doctors in Tucson take shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords off a ventilator, which means she is breathing on her own.

Surgeons at Tucson’s University Medical Center removed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from a ventilator Saturday and inserted a tracheotomy tube into her neck to assist her breathing, according to the center.

Removing her from the ventilator, which means she is now breathing on her own, allows the medical team to assess her ability to speak and is another step toward stabilizing her condition so she can leave the intensive care unit and be moved to a regular hospital room.
