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.

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.
