Autism and Gina Marie Incandela

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

When Gina was about 2 years old she was diagnosed with PDD NOS (an autistic spectrum disorder). The pervasive development disorder diagnosis was a result of evaluations sought because Gina could not speak at age 2.

In fact, Gina did not really start speaking words until after age 3. In addition to a speech and language delay, she had many other developmental delays. She did not have age appropriate social skills. She had poor eye contact, sensory issues, and feeding issues among others.

She had difficulty transitioning and did not adapt well to new environments. She was often afraid in public and could not tolerate noisy places such as theme parks or carnivals. She had odd behaviors such as scratching the floors and walls and stacking her toys instead of playing with them. She had no imaginary play skills. When she went to a playground, she showed no interest in other children. She would simply pick up sticks and rocks.

The doctors that diagnosed her were unable to state whether her condition would improve or worsen. They were unable to tell us whether she would ever be able to speak.
Gina’s Story

Gina has worked very hard over the past few years to reach every goal set for her. Now, this beautiful child that once could not speak, has established herself as an up and coming vocal star. She has performed the National Anthem at major events around the Country including the 2008 US Open, NBA, MLB and NHL season games.

Having worked with autistic children for years, I personally know first hand the indescribable joy when a child made eye contact with me for the very first time. When that child, who had been nonverbal for a long time, or perhaps forever – uttered his first word.

au-tisicimage

I learned to love children who seemed to live in their own “autistic world”, completely unresponsive to those around them, including me.

au-tisticchild2

One precious little girl never uttered a word. Ever.
I was told she was non-verbal and not to bother communicating as she would “never respond to me.”
One day, during trampoline excercise, I began singing..song after song.
Soon after, I heard a little voice, singing along with me…ever so quietly.

Esther sang and sang….and sang.

Do I believe in miracles?
Lord Yes.

By the way…………….
The Magic are now 5-0 in the playoffs whenever Gina Marie sings.
Hmmmm.

Close Gitmo: NOT

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

gi-tmoterrorist

Seventy-four, or one out of every seven, terrorism suspects formerly held at the U.S. detention site at Guantanamo Bay are confirmed or suspected of having returned to terrorism, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

One in 7 who leave Guantanamo involved in terrorism
Apparently the innocent lil Muzlim tourists, who “just got caught up in the middle of a war torn country “, have returned to what they do best: Terrorize.

gi-tmo

Sheesh. Color me astonished.

Guess we shoulda provided them job training, so they could seek another field of gainful employment.
Maybe we could train them to be um..”community organizers”?

gi-tmoterroristtv

I’m thinkin Congress could initiate an “Adopt a Detainee” program eh?

But of course, tis all America’s refusal to to acknowledge the brutal, killer terrorists’..ahem.. inmates’ “basic humanity.” As if they had any.
The “rights” and humanity of the families of 3,000 Americans who were slaughtered on September 11, 2001 doesn’t even hit the radar.

You know. According to the Leftard mentality:

Tis all about the “root causes and rehabilitation” of terrorists.
And imprisonment just causes more crime, right?
bombani-skool.gif

Taking a stand and defending ourselves against terrorists causes more terrorism too, right?

muzflagblood

End Torture.
Close Gitmo.

Nice bumper stickers aint they.

The harsh fact is that most of the Muzlim terrorist thugs in Gitmo have gained weight. They’ve never eaten better (of course all halal) in their God forsaken lives.
They’ve never received better medical care.

They get to excercise daily and pray (for infidels to DIE) on their very own “government-issued” prayer rug and handy dandy Koooran.

“Ain’t No Sunshine”: Classic song by Bill Withers.
Ain’t No Sunshine is ranked as the 280th spot on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs.

bi-llwithers

Withers: “I was watching a movie called Days Of Wine And Roses (1962) with Lee Remick and Jack Lemmon. They were both alcoholics who were alternately weak and strong. It’s like going back for seconds on rat poison. Sometimes you miss things that weren’t particularly good for you. It’s just something that crossed my mind from watching that movie, and probably something else that happened in my life that I’m not aware of.”
SongFacts
This was Withers’ first hit. After spending 9 years in the US Navy, he had a job at a factory making parts for airplanes when he was introduced to Booker T. Jones from Booker T. & the MG’s. Booker was an elite session musician with Stax Records, where Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and many other Soul legends recorded. He brought in some other top-notch musicians, including Stephen Stills on lead guitar, and produced this album for Withers, who was 32 when it was recorded.

New York: Muslims try to Kill Jews in Synagogue Bombing Plot

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

muz-ny250x227

Four Muslims have been arrested over a plot to shoot down US military aircraft and simultaneously blow up two synagogues in New York.

WORLD: Plot to blow up American jets and Jews

muz-terorny

He was caught on tape complaining that the “best target [the World Trade Center] was hit already”. In the same conversation Cromitie, who has been arrested 27 times, said:

“I hate those motherf***ers, those f***ing Jewish bastards … I would like to get a synagogue.”

The plotters allegedly planted one fake bomb in the boot of a car outside the Riverdale Temple and two on the seat of another car outside the nearby Riverdale Jewish Center in the Bronx last night. The gang then planned to drive 60 miles north of New York to Newburgh to collect mobile phone detonating devices.

muz-terrorny2

riv-erdaljewish-center

In the meantime, Our media here in the good ole USA say NOTHING about the terrorist Jew and America haters being um….MUSLIM. Because as we all know..that’s…err..irrelevant, right?

Mainstream Media Lies of Omission

The same RIVERDALE JEWISH CENTER THAT ALLOWED A MUSLIM GIRL TO PRAY INSIDE THEIR HALLOWED WALLS.

Rabbi Jonathan Rosenblatt says nothing of this in his ahem..”statement.”
Rabbi avoids some of the Facts

Dinar Enggar Puspita had never been inside a synagogue until she came to Riverdale in August; now she prays at Riverdale Jewish Center every Wednesday.

Ms. Puspita isn’t Jewish — she’s a Muslim exchange student from Indonesia spending the year living in Riverdale..

muz-pray-inshul-riverdaleAnyone question HER yet?!

“We’re just helping to welcome somebody’s child from overseas,” said Rabbi Rosenblatt on Nov. 12. “I only hope when my children travel halfway around the world they will be as scrupulous in their prayers as Dinar is in hers. “She’s got a standing invitation to join the synagogue for Sabbath services, Rabbi Rosenblatt added.

A Muslim gets a standing invitation to join his synagogue?!!!

Dhimmitude in all its glory.
Jews eating their own.
Indeed. We reap what we sow my friends.

Hat tip to my friend democast.ha-t-tip-icon-ani

From Copenhagen to London, IzlamoNazis are on the offensive.
From Tehran to Indonesia, Izlamo dictators are trying to regain the upper hand not only in the Middle East, but worldwide.

The hateful enemies of liberal democracy are working tirelessly to weaken the United States, Israel and freedom loving nations everywhere.

muzkid-

The United States of America and its allies, including Israel, – seek to embody the principles of decent, civilized, democracy.

We did not seek this war. But we are at war, my friends and should we lose this one…….there may be no turning back.

This is a critical moment in the history of our civilization, beset by enemies who feverishly and irrationally embrace their own destruction along with ours.
anger

Yet our fate and destiny is in the hands of alleged “leaders” who make a virtue of avoiding decisive action or even genuine reflection.

They have allowed our precious Judeo-Chrisian culture to be hijacked and discarded.

muz-hez-sign

Liberals yet again demonstrating their detachment from the pulse of America.

Despite those who hurl stones at us to grind their own ideological axes, America remains the greatest bastion of liberty and freedom in the world and the least tainted by anti-Semitism.

Israel: The Truth

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

is-soldier6

Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu gave an interview and was asked
about Israel ‘s occupation of Arab lands — his response was:
“It’s our land.”

The reporter (CNN) was stunned — read below:
“It’s our land.”
israel-ani.gif

“Crash Course on the Arab Israeli Conflict.”

Here are overlooked facts in the current Middle East situation.
These were compiled by a Christian university professor.

BRIEF FACTS ON THE ISRAELI CONFLICT TODAY.

( It takes just 1.5 minutes to read!!!! )

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem .. Israel became a nation in 1312
B. C. E. Two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part
of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment
of the modern State of Israel .

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B. C. E., the Jews have had dominion
over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land
for the past 3,300 years.

4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 C. E. lasted no
more than 22 years.

ha-massburnflags

5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital.
Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity.
Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem , they never sought to
make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish
Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem . Mohammed never
came to Jerusalem ..

mo-therblood

8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem .. Muslims pray with their backs
toward Jerusalem ..

9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged
to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews ..
Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

10 The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to
Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.

israelshaiatias2

11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to
be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is
estimated to be the same.

12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated
into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory.
Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only
refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated
into their own peoples’ lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed
into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey .

muzisraelsign

13. The Arab – Israeli Conflict: The Arabs are represented by eight
separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish
nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel
defended itself each time and won.

14. The P.L.O.’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel.
Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land,
autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.

muzbowswastika

15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the
Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all
Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible
to people of all faiths.

16. The U.N. Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security
Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel .
antagonize

17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990,
429 were directed against Israel ..

18. The U.N was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed
by the Jordanians.

19. The U. N. Was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated
the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
angry07

20. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like
policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall
.

And there you have it :AGAIN.

But hey, Keep it up, Leftards..Spread all the bold faced lies and propaganda you want. You’ll soon be pledging allegiance to All-ah — at the point of a gun.

But who expected THAT vocal range?

Why do ya suppose so many male Sopranos stay far away from “Nessun Dorma”?
Who can hit these notes?! I mean …really.

op-era-calsmallgirl

A bit of cultural background: heh.
NessunDorma
opera-casmall

Nessun dorma (English: No one shall sleep) is an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot, and is one of the best-known tenor arias in all opera.

It is sung by Calaf, il principe ignoto (the unknown prince), who falls in love at first sight with the beautiful but cold Princess Turandot. However, any man who wishes to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles. If he fails, he will be beheaded.

Nobody shall sleep!…
Nobody shall sleep!
Even you, o Princess,
in your cold room,
watch the stars,
that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me,
my name no one shall know…
No!…No!…
On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!…
(No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.)
Vanish, o night!
Set, stars! Set, stars!
At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

WTG Greg~!

Mothers.

Our mother’s love determines how
We love ourselves and all others.
There is no heaven we will ever see
Not lit by that first love.

Devoid of love, the universe
Would drive us all mad with pain.

Mom,
Because of you… our world still has
the soft grace of your warm smile,
And every wind of fortune bears
The scent of your very first caress.

mo-thersdaytoon7

Close your eyes friends, and wish for the one thing
You simply cannot do without.
When you do..
in your heart you will find it, always there:
Love.
