I just posted on Jess's blog yesterday because she raised the question about Bin Laden and how she felt about all the people celebrating in the streets, on Twitter and Facebook - and I told her how I felt on her comments section and then I said I didn't even blog about it... I didn't want to shove my thoughts down people's throats. But after a day has passed I decided well maybe I WILL blog about it because two weeks ago I was crying in Chili's over George W's book and the chapter The Day of Fire.

So here's how I feel.

I didn't shove my feelings down anyone's throat. I didn't put flags on my car and I didn't come in to work hooting and hollering. I'm not TACKY. But inside, I am dancing a jig. I've been listening to ALL of these people on the radio and TV saying how BOTHERED they are by the jubulation and how we should never, ever celebrate a death. That he was human and we should care about his humanity and he had kids and wives, blah blah.

Here is how I feel about it. He was anatomically human, yes. So was Manson, so was Ted Bundy. NONE of those men had a drop of humanity in their bodies. When BL decided he was going to plan this Day of Fire, he did it over a looooong period of time, he sent people over here to go to flight school and even during all of that time he was still bombing ships and spreading his terrorism all over the planet. He sent those people here and he KNEW there were babies on those planes. He knew  there were mom's and dad's in the Pentagon. He KNEW there were parents working in the Trade Center and innocent people eating in the resturant at the top. HE KNEW and he didn't care. So I don't care about him.

I don't believe that everyone who doesn't believe in Jesus should be nailed to a cross to see how it feels. I love Hindu's, Jews, Christians, Buddists. I have respect for everyone. It REALLY ticked me off that just because we don't believe the same things, he sent his Nasty Ninnys over here to do his dirty work.

When I first saw the news Sunday night, I sat in my bedroom and cried for about 30 minutes. I cried for all the people who lost their lives and all the families that had to carry on without them. You can laugh and say "Oh she's from Texas death penality state " .... but I believe in an eye for an eye. I believe if you kill people, you deserve to be killed. It's in the Bible.

I was VERY proud when George W said "the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon" ... I do support the death penalty and I'm not afraid to say it.

I think I'm fairly non-judgemental, but I actually sat in my car listening to the people talk about humanity and how they "could not celebrate a death" and the first thought that went through my head and it has NEVER gone through my head was "Bleeding Heart Liberals- MEH" and I switched off the radio. That's how I feel. If people want to cry for him, then go ahead but I won't be joining you.

Justice was served. As Toby Keith said "we'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way"  - I am 100% ok with that. After I was done crying, I did a little celebratory dance in my bedroom and and as Conrad and I watched the President talk I just kept thinking GOOD, GOOD, GOOD. He deserved it. It was 9 years, 7 months and like 20 days coming.

Also, I have heard from several accounts they didn't just break into the compound and shot him. He knew and he ran. He looked right into the faces of the black ops people and he knew the jig was up and that America was going to make him pay for what happened. That is satisfying to me.
