New Jersey Housewives Reunion - August 30, 2010

There were two of these urns but one was broken by Jacqueline's mother the day that they were all leaving for Italy.

The picture of the pool table is the same one that was in one of the scenes of NJ housewives. Teresa was on one end of the table leaning down to her "boobies" we on the table while her hubby was ready to shoot pool.

Poker table were the husbands of the housewives were teaching Jacqueline's daughter's boyfriend how to play poker. 

Catalog of all the items up for auction with the MANSION. Note there is one "Go-Cart", of which, was given to the older daughter on her birthday. Remember that lavious party Teresa gave for her daughter with the limo and all?


My thoughts:

After watching Part 2 of the reunion, and how everyone acted, I would only be lowering myself if I broke down my thoughts of each and every NJ Housewife.

I will say this though, it appears Caroline only has control of the "housewives" more so then within her own household.  :)

Martin Luther King Jr., "I Have A Dream" August 28, 1963

LISTEN TO SPEECH HERE:  http://www.archive.org/download/MLKDream/MLKDream_64kb.mp3

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

We cannot turn back.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: "For Whites Only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."¹

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,

From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.

And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.

Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

But not only that:

Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

Cesar Laurean Guilty Of First Degree Murder

The jury returned a guilty verdict of first degree murder, not guilty of robbery with a dangerous weapon, and guilty of financial card theft.



My thoughts:
I am thrilled over the outcome of the trial today.  I recall how draining it was when Maria went missing, how she was murdered along with her child, and then Cesar taking off.

Issues nor Nancy Grace seemed to show little to no interest in the case, however today I just found out that the baby Maria was carrying was not even Cesar's.  I found an article back from May 15, 2009 indicating the DNA results showed Cesar was not the father of the unborn child.

All that matters is justice has been served for Maria and Baby Gabriel.  Although Cesar's attorney feels Cesar is "not guilty" of the crime and plans to appeal, however, they can appeal all they want, Cesar is GUILTY!!!!

Terri Moulton Horman - Insight Into Terri's Life Through Other People's Eyes

Great article and worth reading.

I find Kaine to appear to try and switch things to his favor. For instance while reading the article about Terri wanting to know daily how Kyron was doing in school; according to Kaine, Terri wanted Kaine to discipline Kyron should Kyron misbehave in school. Kaine is Kyron's father and had total control over Kyron and if Kaine didn't want Terri to get daily reports from the school, all Kaine had to do was call the school and tell them "don't give Terri daily reports regarding Kyron."

Brad Conway Resigns As Attorney For George and Cindy Anthony

Brad Conway's Resignation Letter
With regret I am forced to resign as George and Cindy Anthonys attorney. The defense motion filed on August 9, 2010 contains allegations that are not in fact true. As an officer of the court I cannot stand idly by knowing allegations involving me have been misstated. I am now a witness to an innacurate legal pleading filed in our court system. As such, I cannot continue in good conscience as a legal representative. George and Cindy Anthony have done nothing improper, it is the failure of the defense to verify the facts alleged in their motion that forces my withdrawal. I will continue to support the Anthonys, will continue to attend hearings and the eventual trial and most importantly I will continue to search for the full truth regarding the killing of Caylee Marie Anthony.

Bradley A. Conway, Esq. Law Office of Bradley A. Conway 189 S. Orange Ave. Suite 1850 Orlando, Fl. Office: 407-246-0803 Fax: 407-386-3114


TConway resigns because of a motion filed by Baez regarding the TES documents? WTH has that got to do with being the attorney for the Anthony's?

Nancy Grace Reports On Fantasia's "Alledged" Affair

Why in the world are you making such a big deal over the fact that Fantasia is having a relationship with a married man? WHO CARES! Fantasia is not the first woman to have an affair with a married man nor will she be the last woman to have an affair with a married man.

Spewing the crap for the first half hour of the show was a total waste of air space. Leave it for the tabloid stations to cover this story and concentrate on what really matters - "MISSING CHILDREN AND ADULTS" or perhaps day to day crimes, anything but the love life of a singer who won American Idol years ago.

Did Terri's Friends Provide Terri With A New Cell Phone?

According to an article written by the Oregonian, the reporter states: "Investigators have been focusing on Terri Moulton Horman's close circle of friends after learning that one of them obtained new cell phones for her so she could avoid investigators' scrutiny after becoming the focus of the inquiry into the disappearance of her 7-year-old stepson."

IMO, this is the reporters take on what she thinks the reason is regarding a new cellphone more so then what the investigators are thinking.

However, the general public will run with Terri trying to hide something because Terri is under investigation.

Could it be as simple as Kaine cut off the "family plan" cellphone service after finding out about the "sexy" text messages? If that is the case, Terri needed another cellphone in order to be able to communicate with the outside world?

How the heck is Terri suppose to be able to get a cellphone in her name when she has no job or income?

Maybe the Oregonian should check into whether Kaine cut off Terri's cellphone service or perhaps IF the Horman's had a landline, and Kaine cut off that service. Maybe the Oregonian should check into whether Kaine closed out all joint bank accounts leaving Terri without money. Do we know that part of the story? NOPE, we only know what reporters are thinking that LE is thinking is the reason for Terri's friends obtaining a cellphone for Terri.

Casey Anthony Jail House Visitors Log 10/15/08 - 7/21/10

I still find it strange that Casey's parents never went to the jail to visit their daughter.  I understand that the visits are recorded, but at least go and visit your child just to show her "we are here to support you" no matter who is watching or recording us.

Terri Horman Writes About "Kitty" On Her FaceBook Page

I recall reading at an online news website and across the chatter on the Internet regarding "Kitty" and people chatting about Terri writing about  the "Kitty" while Kyron is missing.

Well, upon reading the comments on Terri's Facebook page, it appears that "Kitty" is a nickname for her daughter "Kiara".

Here are a couple of postings about Kitty:

Terri Moulton Horman: Kitty has been hugged by lots of people both in person and via internet. She keeps going in Kyron's room, sitting on his bed and reading his books. :)

Terri Moulton Horman: Kitty has figured out that she can push her personal potty over to James' bed and climb up to look out the window. Only trouble is that it's paned glass from the 1930's....

Terri Moulton Horman: Kitty is already in the groove for the gym. She sported her new Notre Dame backpack given to her by Pam and carried it around like I do. When she walked in, she told the 2 people behind the desk "MUAH!" and blew them a kiss. Little Miss Social Butterfly.

Terri Moulton Horman: Trying to sneak a shower in since Kitty already had one. Told her "No." when she tried to come in with me. She responded with "Okay, bye bye." which she never just leaves. She took my shower mat out the door, put diapers in the toilet and bathroom sink on her way out. Wonder where she gets the passive/agressive from? ;)

So much for the speculation that "Kitty" is a cat!

Terri Horman "Allegedly" Posted Comments on KATU.com

My thoughts: Can you imagine, you are reading an article at an online media website and you decide to post your opinion. The website can track you down right down to the color of your nail polish. Posters beware of what you say when commenting on websites.
