Susan Boyle: You Got Me

susanboyle-200x150I know, 45 year old Randy Johnson turned back the clock and blew away the Diamondbacks..  the NFL draft is this weekend, and the NBA playoffs are heating up.  But the the story of the week is Susan Boyle...... the biggest YouTube sensation in the history of civilization.  Her stunning performance.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY.. has been seen about a trillion times..... As Mark Blankenship wrote..  "Her clip enacts a story that we want to be true.  No matter how much we mock those we consider beneath us, it's much more satisfying to be reminded that everyone has dignity.  That's because when we laugh at someone for being a freak, we're laughing out of fear.  We're laughing because we want to prove that we are not like that loser over there. If we can shame the people who don't belong, then we can prove that we do."  But maybe there's a little bit of Susan Boyle in all of us.....

If you think Susan Boyle is something, look up ELEVEN YEAR OLD Bianca Ryan...my mouth was dropping to the floor from the first note.

I had a dream to start my own organization, but I did not have got enough amount of money to do this. Thank God my close mate recommended to take the loans. So I received the commercial loan and realized my desire.
