Even the Romans Knew!

So what have we learned in 2,065 years?




"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."



Cicero - 55 BC



Apparently nothing!!!

This Says It All; the Stupidity and Ignorance of Obama's TSA (from an email)

As the Chalk Leader for my flight home from Afghanistan, I witnessed the following:




When we were on our way back from Afghanistan, we flew out of Baghram Air Field. We went through customs at BAF, full body scanners (no

groping), had all of our bags searched, the whole nine yards. Our first stop was Shannon, Ireland to refuel. After that, we had to stop at Indianapolis, Indiana to drop off about 100 folks from the Indiana National Guard. That's where the stupid started.



First, everyone was forced to get off the plane-even though the plane wasn't refueling again. All 330 people got off that plane, rather than let the 100 people from the ING get off. We were filed from the plane to a holding area. No vending machines, no means of escape. Only a male/female latrine.



It's probably important to mention that we were ALL carrying weapons. Everyone was carrying an M4 Carbine (rifle) and some, like me, were also carrying an M9 pistol. Oh, and our gunners had M-240B machine guns. Of course, the weapons weren't loaded. And we had been cleared of all ammo well before we even got to customs at Baghram, then AGAIN at customs.



The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it re-inspected. Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area, the TSA decided not to re-inspect our Cargo-just to inspect us again:



Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected, re-inspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever. So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.



This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying

pistols.



So we're in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that they're going to confiscate his nail clippers. The conversation went something like this:



TSA Guy: You can't take those on the plane.



Soldier: What? I've had them since we left country.



TSA Guy: You're not suppose to have them.



Soldier: Why?



TSA Guy: They can be used as a weapon.



Soldier: [touches butt stock of the rifle] But this actually is a weapon. And I'm allowed to take it on.



TSA Guy: Yeah but you can't use it to take over the plane. You don't have bullets.



Soldier: And I can take over the plane with nail clippers?



TSA Guy: [awkward silence]



Me: Dude, just give him your damn nail clippers so we can get the f**k out of here. I'll buy you a new set.



Soldier: [hands nail clippers to TSA guy, makes it through security]



To top it off, the TSA demanded we all be swabbed for "explosive residue" detection. Everyone failed, [go figure, we just came home from a war zone], because we tested positive for "Gun Powder Residue". Who the F**K is hiring these people?



This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine

guns-but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.



Can someone please tell me What the F**K happened to OUR country while we were gone?

From an email: HB 1388

Subject: HB 1388 PASSED








The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings;

The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

W. Churchill



HB 1388 WAS JUST PASSED (In Secret)



You just spent $20,000,000 to move members/supporters of Hamas, a

terrorist organization, to the United States ; This includes: housing, food, transportation, the whole enchilada.



HB 1388 PASSED



Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S.

Needs to know....



H.R. 1388 was passed behind our backs. Now, read about it.

It wasn't mentioned on the news...



Just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.





"Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the

USA." This is the news that did not, and will not, make the headlines...





By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza .





The "presidential determination" (ain't that nice?) which allows hundreds

of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States, was signed and appears in the Federal Register.





Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a

free ticket replete with housing, transportation and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.





Now we learn that he is allowing thousands of Palestinian refuges to move

to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense. These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.





Doubtful? Verify this for yourself:

North Korea

Today, the North Koreans shelled a South Korean island with civilians living on it. People are speculating what the US will do about it beyond lip service and platitudes, and the answer is: NOTHING! I hate to tell you good folks, but we cannot and will not do anything about North Korea, or any other nation in the world unless they attack this country directly, and even then with who we have as president, I doubt we would retaliate. The reason we cannot and will not do anything is this: WE ARE NO LONGER A SUPERPOWER! I know that hurts, and I know that shocks, but we are no longer a superpower. China is the world's sole superpower now. The United States stopped being a superpower for probably the past 5 years at least and to prove what I'm saying is correct, look at where just about everything you buy at WalMart, Home Depot, Lowes, or any shopping mall is made: CHINA! The People's Republic has almost 2 billion people living in it. 2 billion Communist slave laborers which is the reason why American manufacturers have closed factories in the US and moved them to China. Cheap slave labor. That and the fact that China holds all our debt, which makes it next to impossible for American made products to compete internationally. This may seem like a huge digression from North Korea, but it isn't. Here's how the two tie together. We, the United States of America no longer have the economic or military trump cards to hang over the world's head anymore. If we threaten action against North Korea, Kim Jong (mentally) Il will laugh at us and China will say, "America? SHUT UP! You're not going to take any kind of action against North Korea or anyone else unless we (China) give you permission to do so."  Because China holds all our debt, they theoretically have the power to do that. Let's face it everybody, we are no longer the world's sole superpower. We are no longer even a second rate power. And as far as I'm concerned, we brought it on ourselves. Pretty soon it's going to get to be questionable if we can protect our own security, let alone defend any other nation. And as far as being the world's policeman forget it. This may be the tipping point folks, this may be the start of the "times that try men's souls."

NO! On Fred Upton

A message to the incoming Republicans, whatever you do when you get sworn in at the House of Representatives, if you do nothing else DO NOT APPOINT FRED UPTON AS CHAIRMAN OF THE ENERGY COMMITTEE!!!!! Fred Upton was instrumental in getting incandescent light bulbs banned starting in 2012! Please, I beg you do not appoint this man to ANY committee chairmanships whatsoever! You Republicans were elected to roll back an increasingly intrusive federal government. If you choose to appoint this man to a committee chairmanship, especially to the energy committee of all things, then you will have totally lost credibility with myself and millions of other Americans. Always remember, WE ARE AWAKE NOW! WE ARE PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU DO! We elected you to roll back the things that Progressives like Upton voted into law, namely the banning of incandescent light bulbs, which as far as I and most people are concerned, IT'S NONE OF THE GOVERNMENT'S BUSINESS WHAT KIND OF LIGHT BULBS I OR ANYONE ELSE USE!!! And stop trying to artificially increase energy prices in order to force WE THE PEOPLE  to use products we may not like or want. Remember this incoming House Republicans, I'M GOING TO KEEP AN EYE ON YOU!!!! Myself and millions of others are going to keep an eye on you, wer're awake now and we're watching!

Congrats to the Republicans, DON"T SCREW IT UP!"

Congratulations to the GOP for their tremendous win last night November 2, 2010. Sixty seats in the House of Representatives are now in Conservative/Republican hands, possibly more once all the votes are counted, and the gap between the Dems and the GOP  in the Senate has been significantly narrowed. Now that the GOP has the House in their hands I have this to say: DON'T SCREW IT UP! Don't make the same mistakes you made from 1994 to 2006. And above all, DO NOT "GO ALONG TO GET ALONG" WITH THE OBAMANATION OR ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT!(Progressive) The message is this: No Retreat, No Surrender, No Compromise. We did not elect you to compromise with the enemy, or go along to get along with the enemy. John Boehner has already talked about repealing Obamacare, which is a step in the right direction. I know, I know, the Conservatives do not have the votes to override an Obama veto, but they can keep proposing the legislation, and keep casting Obama in a very bad light as he keeps vetoing it, and  going against the will of the American people. Also, since the House controls the government's purse strings, they can also de-fund Obamacare along with any other program, depending on who's in charge of the Ways and Means Committee. Another item is making the Bush tax cuts permanent, which is another great idea. The bottom line (God I hate that phrase!)  is this: To all Republicans who were elected last night, We The People are sick and tired of being told it is our "patriotic duty" to pay tribute (taxes) to an increasingly intrusive federal government, we are sick and tired of being told that we're racists because we want to keep our borders secure, we are sick of being told that we're stupid when we say we don't want the government running healthcare, we are fed up with being told that we don't know what's good for us when we say we don't want the government running our schools, we are sick of hearing true patriotism being called "jingoism,"
we are tired of our values being impugned, and our way of life being blamed for "global warming." Compromising, backing down, going along to get along are not options this time around, for if you do any or all of those things, there may not be a Republican party in 2012. Like the title says: Congrats Republicans, DON'T SCREW IT UP!

How Did Jefferson Know? (from an email)



John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the
brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement:
"This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to
gather at one time in the White House with the exception of
when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."





When we get piled
upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe .
Thomas Jefferson




The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson




It is incumbent on every
generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on would save
one-half the wars of the world.
Thomas Jefferson




I predict future happiness for
Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the
pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson



My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much
government.
Thomas Jefferson




No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson




The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson




The tree of liberty must be
refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson




To compel a man to subsidize with
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson




Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
'I believe that
banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow
private banks to control the issue of their
currency, first by inflation, then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will
grow up around the banks will deprive the people
of all property - until their children
wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
conquered.'

For Our Favorite Gal From Hanoi



Heartwarming
After more than 40 years...the Vietnam Veterans of the United States of America raised a phenomenal amount of money to memorialize another one of Hollywood's American citizens



This memorial says it all!
I get teary eyed when I see this.





She went out of her way to aid and abet the enemy and congratulate them on their treatment of U.S. POW'

The Witch and the Communist

Isn't amazing how the Dems are trying to derail Christine O'Donnell over something she did when she was in high school? Look at the "dabbling" the left wing has been involved in since, well since the early 1900s at least. Let's also take a look at her opponent, Chris Coons, a self-proclaimed Marxist aka Communist. If I was Christine O'Donnell, I would hammer on the fact that her opponent is a Communist and also state that we already have one in the Senate name of Bernie Sanders. So, my take is this; a choice between a "witch" or a Communist. I pick the "witch".

Beck Hits it Out of the Park

I had the great pleasure of attending the Glenn Beck/ Special Operations Warrior Foundation Restoring Honor event yesterday, 8/28/2010 in Washington D.C.. We left at 5:00 in the morning, we meaning two friends and myself, and drove to the Shady Grove Metro Rail station near Rockville, MD. The ticket office didn't open till 7:00AM, and already there was a long line. After waiting in line for an hour and forty-five minutes, we finally got our tickets and boarded the train. It took half an hour to reach Metro Central in D.C., where we finally debarked the train and walked from 13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue to the  National Mall. My feet were singing Ave Maria by this time. We could not believe the number of people that were lined up on both sides of the reflecting pool from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. The mood of the crowd was upbeat, everybody was courteous to each other there was no pushing or harsh words spoken by anyone. Beck, Sarah Palin, Reverend C.L. Jackson, Doctor Alveda King, and Marcus Luttrell were all fantastic speakers. I left the event with a feeling of hope and a renewed determination to do what I can to help put this country back where it should be. The event showed  that we all matter, and that a hero can be anybody. Anybody. And that race and color are irrelevant. It opened my eyes to the fact that if we all do our part, our country can once again be returned, restored to it's rightful place of honor and greatness. More importantly, the event reinforced my faith in God, and showed me that the Almighty will not allow this nation to perish from the earth, as long as we do our part. Glenn Beck hit it out of the park, and no matter what the so-called "mainstream" media and other bloggers say to downplay or mischaracterize this event, half million Americans will firmly disagree. Myself included.

Read This Please: I can't come up with a title for this piece...This better not be true....from an email

Need something to get your blood boiling????




Has anyone heard of this new word? Dhimmitude?



Amish and other religious groups may be exempt from forced purchase of healthcare policies under Obama care.



You know what other groups this could include???



Muslims and Christian Scientists may be exempt from having to have government healthcare.



Word of the Day: Dhimmitude







Unbelievable



I had my doubts so I checked with Snopes. There is an exemption for "certain religious groups" in the Health Care Bill.



Obama supporters check it out yourself.



Had never heard the word until now---Type it into Google and start reading Pretty interesting.



Note that Muslims and certain other religions are exempt from the Obamacare penalties and it is supported by law.



We are surrendering from within!



The prez is leading us right down the path to total Muslim control and you don't care! Maybe you voted for him but now the truth comes out. Maybe you should rethink what you have done.



Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad.



Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to islam.



The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia muslim diktat in the United States .



Muslims may be specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured.



Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking" and "usury" and is thus banned. Muslims may be specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient.



So I John Smith, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, cars and etc. and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax.



Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance at our expense.



Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.



Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to islam.







In this case, the incentive to convert to islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor or belief in God!



If you don't believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver.



"Sure, I'll be a muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, brother?"



Now all you Obama voters get in line for your free stuff!...However, I suggest you don't hold your breath!...



I recommend sending this email to all your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it and what the past election has done to all of us!



PS Have you heard about the summit Obama is holding this month in DC for the future Muslim business leaders in the US ? He wants to increase their ability to begin business opportunities in the US for the Muslim community!







Better start looking for a country that doesn't cater to the Muslims ~ Australia doesn't because this country will be overrun by Muslims like Europe is currently experiencing.



And you thought our problem was the Mexicans!......

Was George Bush an Idiot? (From an email)

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?




If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?



If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?



If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, would you have said that he is clueless.



If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas, would you have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.



If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?



If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes as proof of what a dunce he is?



If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?



If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?



If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?



If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.



If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?





So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 15 months -- so you'll have two years and nine months to come up with an answer.

This is the "Religion of Peace"? ( from an email)

The things I didn't know............More work to do - isn't this "news" to Americans? anyone seen it in the "media?"


Be sure and scan all the way down and see the photos sent from a Canadian about what's going on in England!!!

Oh, it is a religion. It has nothing to do with God. A former Muslim,

who is on the Muslim hit list, spoke at our church, and I was afforded

an opportunity to talk to him about Muslims. I told him that I could not

resolve the Lord God, Jehovah with Allah. He looked me straight in the

eyes and said, 'That is because Allah is Satan.' Armed with that

knowledge, it all falls in place.



Mass Muslim Marriage in Gaza



Poor kids - what a terrible fate to be born as a girl in a Muslim country



HAMAS PLAYS HOST TO PEDOPHILIA





Muhammad married a six year old bride. But Islam has evolved in 1500 years. In Hamas land, in 2009, the brides are almost seven.




Mass Muslim Marriage in Gaza



450 Grooms Wed GIRLS Under Ten In Gaza

By Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

Thelastcrusade.org



A gala event has occurred in Gaza .



Hamas sponsored a mass wedding for four hundred and fifty couples.

Most of the grooms were in their mid to late twenties; most of brides were under ten.



Muslim dignitaries including Mahmud Zahar, a leader of Hamas, were on hand to congratulate the couples who took part in the carefully staged celebration.



We are saying to the world and to America that you cannot deny us joy and happiness, Zahar told the grooms, all of whom were dressed in identical black suits and hailed from the nearby Jabalia refugee camp.



Each groom received a gift of 500 dollars from Hamas.



The pre-pubescent girls, dressed in white gowns and adorned with garish make-up, received bridal bouquets.



We are presenting this wedding as a gift to our people who stood firm in the face of the siege and the war, Local Hamas strongman Ibrahim Salaf said in a speech.



The wedding photos tell the rest of the sordid tale.





The International Center for Research on Women now estimates that there are 51 million child brides now living on planet earth and almost all in Muslim countries.




Twenty-nine percent of these child brides are regularly beaten and molested by their husbands in Egypt ; twenty six percent receive similar abuse in Jordan .



Every year, three million Muslim girls are subjected to genital mutilation, according to UNICEF. This practice has not been outlawed in many parts of America .



The Islamic practice of pedophilia dates back to the prophet Muhammad, who amassed eleven wives and many concubines after the death of his first wife Khadijah in 619 A.D.


After Muhammad’s elderly wife, Khadijah, died in 619 A.D., he amassed eleven wives.


He arranged the visits to the tents of his women around their menstrual cycles. His

capacity for sexual congress seemed to be boundless. Sahih Bukhari, one of the most

revered Islamic texts, recounts: The Prophet used to visit his wives in around, during

the day and night, and they were eleven in number. I asked Anas, Had the Prophet

the strength for it? Anas replied, We used to say that the Prophet had the [sexual] stamina

of thirty [men].[1]



For in-between treats, the Prophet kept a stable of concubines, including Reihana,

his Jewish captive. His wives and mistresses were compelled by Islamic law to satisfy his

sexual needs at any time of the day or night, and the Prophet reserved the right to enjoy

them from the top of their heads to the bottom of their feet. [2]



This might not appear shocking to students of the Kinsley Report, except for the case

of Aisha, Muhammad’s favorite wife. Aisha was the daughter of Abu Bakr, the Prophet's

closest friend and most faithful follower. As soon as Muhammad laid eyes on Aisha, he

came to fantasize having sex with her. There was a problem with this fantasy.

Aisha, at that time, was a small child of four or five, while Muhammad was a middle-aged man of fifty.[3]



Still and all, the Prophet wasted no time in making his fantasy a reality. When Aisha turned six,

Muhammad asked Abu Bakr for his daughter's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr thought that such

a union would be improper - not because Aisha was a mere child but rather because he considered

himself Muhammad's brother. The Prophet quickly brushed aside this objection by saying that

the union was perfectly right in the eyes of Allah. Abu Bakr consented,

and Muhammad took the little girl as his new bride.



When they were married, Muhammad, in his mercy, permitted Aisha to take her toys, including her dolls,

to their new tent.[4] The marriage was consummated when Aisha was nine, and the prophet fifty-three.[5]

The three year waiting period was not caused by Muhammad concern of sexually molesting a child

but rather by the fact that Aisha contracted some disease which caused her to lose her hair.[6]


Pedophilia was not only practiced by Muhammad but also sanctioned by the Quran.


In its discussion of the waiting period required to determine if a wife is pregnant

before divorce, the sacred text says if you are in doubt concerning those of your

wives who have ceased menstruating, know that their waiting period shall be three

months. The same shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated ?(65:4).

Those who think that modern Muslims have abandoned this teaching should study the pictures and

videos that accompany this article and recall the words of Ayatollah Khomeini, the most famous Islamic cleric of the 20th Century:

A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate;

sodomizing the child is OK. If a man penetrates and damages the child, then he should be responsible

for her subsistence all her life. This girl, however, does not count as one of his four permanent wives.

The man will not be eligible to marry the girl's sister. . . It is better for a girl to marry in such a time

when she would begin menstruation at her husband's house rather than her father's house.

Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.[7]

PICTURES FROM LONDON ....THIS IS BEYOND SCARY




Makes you wonder doesn't it...can you imagine having a Christian demonstration against Islam in downtown Baghdad ?



View the pictures below and decide how you really feel about the future of the Western World. These pictures are of Muslims marching through the STREETS OF LONDON during their 'Religion of Peace Demonstration.'


Why would anyone think that we should be at war with such nice, peaceful Muslims?!


You need to forward this one to everyone! These pictures tell it all!

Muslims have stated that England will be the first country they take over!

These are pictures not shown on American TV or in American Newspapers , but were forwarded by a Canadian who thought All Christians ought to know!

Troops' Voting Rights in Jeopardy

I guess Obama and his minions can't win without attempting to violate the voting rights of our men and women in uniform ( our military, to you leftists out there). Apparently several states  are in violation of the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE). And as with the Black Panthers' voter intimidation tactics in 2008, Shyster oops.....Attorney General Eric Holder is doing nothing to stop these states  from carrying out their non-enforcement of a federal law. Hmmm, sounds like what's happening in Arizona doesn't it? The MOVE Act was passed in October of 2009 to ensure American citizens and military personnel stationed overseas are not disenfranchised from their right to vote. This has happened on some occasions, but to the best of my knowledge the problem was corrected and the military and overseas ballots were counted. But that was then and this is now, and it seems we have to deal with an administration that apparently only enforces the laws they agree with. The states in question are: Washington, Hawaii, New York, Delaware, Maryland, and Alaska (if you can believe Sarah Palin's state would try to disenfranchise Alaska's military personnel, of which her own son is a part of). Senator John Cornyn (R Texas), an author of the MOVE Act has demanded an explanation from Eric Holder's Justice Department, but so far nothing has been forthcoming from Obama's Shyster in Chief....oops Attorney General. I strongly suggest the good citizens of the states I just mentioned contact their state representatives and senators as well as their U.S. Congressmen and Senators in order to put an end to this travesty and stop Mr. Obama from disenfranchising our brave men and women in uniform, who incidentally are laying their lives on the line for our freedom every day. Obama and Holder have never faced death at any time in their lives, yet they seem to have no respect for those Americans who do. It's really sad that they have to deny certain people the right to vote in order to win elections isn't it? I guess maybe it's because most military personnel vote for people who will support them and their mission rather than the other party that will consistently dime them out any and every chance they can get.

YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE THIS RANCHER'S OUTLOOK & COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO LIFE. From an email.


              

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''..
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of idiot put him up there to begin with'.

Good Answer (from an email)


President Obama was having that one, lone brief conversation this year with General McChrystal about Afghanistan .

Things were obviously not going the way the General had hoped. Obama could sense this, and told him, "I bet when I die, you'll piss on my grave."
To which General McChrystal answered, "No sir, I've always said that when I get out of the Army, I'll never wait in another line."

The General and the Community Organizer

                                                    


By Paul R. Hollrah


June 26, 2010


Channel surfing from ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN through MSNBC and Fox News,
 the inside-the-beltway pundits had a field day trying to get inside the heads of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, General Stanley McChrystal, and McChrystal’s top aides. The one thing common to all of the analyses, by the most famous and highly-paid talking heads in the Western World, was that they are all wrong… dead wrong. What is certain is that they all owe General McChrystal and his senior aides an apology for assuming that they are lame-brained numbskulls.
The facts of the McChrystal case are not in dispute. General McChrystal and his senior officers allowed a reporter for Rolling Stone Magazine, Michael Hastings, to have almost unprecedented access during an extended stay in Paris. The extended stay was due, in part, to an excess of atmospheric ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, keeping the McChrystal party grounded for days.
In an interview with CNN, Hastings reported that he had a tape recorder in his hand most of the time and that McChrystal was “very aware” that his comments would find their way into print. He said, “McChrystal and his people set no ground rules for their conversations, although they did ask that some parts of their conversations were off the record.” Hastings subsequently published a lengthy profile of General McChrystal on June 22, titled, The Runaway General.
As Hastings wrote in his profile, McChrystal thought that Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated” by the roomful of military brass during their first meeting. Of their second meeting, an advisor to McChrystal quoted the general as saying that it was “a 10-minute photo op.” He went on to say, “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about (McChrystal), who he was. Here’s the guy who’s going to run his f_ _ _ing war, but he didn’t seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed.”
As General McChrystal flew from Afghanistan to Washington to face Obama in the Oval Office, the almost unanimous opinion of the talking heads was that the comments made by McChrystal and his staff were off the cuff and inadvertent. But to believe that is to totally ignore who these men are.
General McChrystal and his top officers are not simple-minded, knuckle-dragging brutes. To the contrary, they are intelligent, thoughtful, highly educated, patriots… graduates of West Point and other fine universities… who are dedicated to duty, honor, and country. To think that such men would be so careless as to speak unflatteringly of Obama, Biden, and other top administration figures, in the presence of a reporter for a notoriously left wing publication, defies logic… at the very least. To think that men who are trained to be careful and deliberate in everything they do, could do something so careless and so unguarded is simply beyond comprehension.

I would argue that McChrystal and his aides knew exactly what they were doing.

From the day that he became the handpicked “spear carrier” for Obama’s unique brand of warfare… playing at being Commander in Chief while playing to his far left constituency… McChrystal’s life had been one of constant frustration. After telling Obama exactly how many troops he needed to carry out his mission, Obama dithered for months before deciding to give him just half the troops he requested. McChrystal could not have been happy about that.
The Obama team insisted on new Rules of Engagement designed to reduce collateral damage (civilian casualties). Obama’s ROE required that U.S. Troops must be able to see the enemy with weapon in hand before they were allowed to return fire. One videotape circulated on the Internet showed a platoon of Marines pinned down by enemy sniper fire. But since the enemy was firing from some distance behind the open window of a building, the Marines could not actually see the weapon being fired. Although they were taking deadly fire, they were prohibited by the ROE from putting small arms fire or an RPG through the window opening.
Under Obama’s politically correct ROE, our soldiers and Marines were required to fight with one hand tied behind their backs. McChrystal could not have been happy about that.
A strict new interrogation policy, dictated by Attorney General Eric Holder, required that prisoners must be delivered to an Interrogation Center within twenty-four hours of being captured or be released. A great deal of actionable intelligence was lost as a result and battle-hardened enemy fighters were returned to the field to kill Americans. McChrystal must have found that to be incomprehensible.
But the greatest insult to our troops in the field, and to the officers who lead them, may be a new battlefield medal designed by the Obama team. It is called the Courageous Restraint Medal and is awarded to soldiers and Marines who demonstrate uncommon restrain in combat by not firing their weapons even when they feel threatened by the enemy. Would we be surprised to learn that the preponderance of these medals were awarded posthumously? McChrystal must have found that to be an insanity.
I suggest that, having his best military judgments subjected to the White House political sieve for nearly a year and a half, McChrystal decided that he’d had enough. And when he announced to his senior staff that he was prepared to retire they decided to push back… to make the most of a bad situation. It was clear that, if McChrystal were to simply take off his uniform and walk away, his retirement would be page-twenty news for a day or two before the mainstream media and the American people forgot all about him.
They had to make the most of his retirement because it provided a one-time opportunity to show the American people, as well as our enemies and our allies, that the man who claims the title of Commander in Chief of the U.S. military does not command the respect of our men and women in uniform. To make the most of that opportunity they had to choose their messenger very carefully.
They knew that, by openly showing their disrespect for Obama in front of just any newsman, they may not attract the attention they desired. Like any astute observer of the MSM, they knew that most reporters would turn on their own mothers if it meant a good story. But they could not take a chance that a mainstream media reporter might suffer a rare pang of conscience when confronted with the prospect of ruining the careers of some of the most senior officers in the War on Terror. They had to fix the odds as much as possible in their favor so they chose to use Michael Hastings and Rolling Stone Magazine.
During the long hours that General McChrystal was in the air between Kabul and Washington, Obama knew that he had just two choices… both bad. He could declare McChrystal to be an irreplaceable asset in the war effort, give him a public reprimand, and send him back to Kabul. Or he could fire McChrystal, sending a clear message that, at least in his own mind, he was the Commander in Chief.
In the former case, he was certain to appear weak and ineffectual… a man not totally in charge. In the latter case, he might at least win a few rave reviews from the Kool-Ade drinkers in the mainstream media. He chose the latter of the two options.
But what is now lost in all of the hand-wringing and speculation is the fact that McChrystal and his people have succeeded in doing exactly what they set out to do. They wanted to plant the seed in the minds of the American people that Obama is not up to the task of being Commander in Chief and that he does not command the respect of the men and women of the uniformed services… from the newest Private E-1 up to the top four-star generals and admirals.
That seed is now firmly planted and it cannot be unplanted.
From this day forward, no one will have to tell the American people that Stanley McChrystal is a true warrior, a man’s man, and that Barack Obama is nothing more than a… community organizer. Well done, General

Supreme Court Rules in Favor of the Second Amendment

In a 5-4 decision(scary), the Supreme Court Of the United  States ruled that the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution also applies to the  states, and to local governments. Another good decision by SCOTUS along the lines of Heller. The case brought before the court was McDonald vs Chicago, the plaintiff is a man by the name of Otis McDonald, who challenged the City of Chicago's 30-year ban on handguns because he wanted to have a pistol in his home to defend himself against gangs in his neighborhood. Several amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs were filed in this case, most notably from Senators Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R, Texas), John Tester (D, Montana), and Representatives Mark Souder (R, Indiana) and Mike Ross (D, Arkansas). 58 Senators and 251 Representatives signed the brief, the most of any amicus curiae brief in U.S. history. I'm hoping that this a sign that The Supreme Court and Congress may finally be adhering to the Constitution, rather than some cobbled-together set of "laws" based on early 20th Century Progressivism and European/Marxist doctrine.

Sarah Palin on Russia

To all you left wing Marxist, Progressive idiots out there who mischaracterized what Sarah Palin said about "seeing Russia from her house" here's what she really said: "They're our next-door neighbors
and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska --from an island in Alaska."

"Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia,
and on our other side the land boundary that we have with Canada....
It certainly enhances my foreign policy credentials.
It is very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia.
As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go?
It's Alaska. It is just right over the border.
It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure
that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia,
because they are right there, next to our state."

Show Me a Great Immigration Law! (from an email)

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the Official language of Missouri. Nearly 90% voting in favor! English became the official language for ALL governmental proceeding in Missouri. It also means no individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.
In 2008 a measure was passed that requires our Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be here illegally. It allows Missouri law enforcement offices to receive training to enforce federal immigration laws. The bill makes it clear that illegal immigrants will NOT have access to taxpayers benefits such as food stamps and health care through Missouri HealthNET.
In 2009 a measure was passed that ensures Missouri's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are here illegally. The law also requires all post-secondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.
So while arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember Missouri has been proactive in addressing this growing problem.
Missouri has sent a clear message that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in our state and they are certainly NOT welcome to receive public benefits at the cost of Missouri taxpayers!

I Guess We're Not a Christian Nation After All, from an email

Very Disturbing


Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , Va.



"I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet / fundraiser event in Starkville . "As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube, a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn't have much of a chance for survival to come. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg , NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn't know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. Wonder what kind of news we all will receive next. You're just starting to see the Obamanation. Your religion is on the list next. I don't know about you, but this makes me furious.



What a rotten thing to do by the "commander-in-chief". And I'm afraid we ain't seen nothin' yet.

Elena Kagan: the First Amendment Limiter

Well, well, well. Now we see where Obama really stands on the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. All you have to do is look at this latest pick for Supreme Court Justice to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens; Elena Kagan. Here's a real winner if you're a dyed-in-the wool Marxist-Progressive America bashing left winger. A real loser if you believe in individual rights and freedom and liberty, or Gaia forbid, you actually believe in the Constitution! (Gaia is the earth goddess that liberals/progressives worship rather than the Almighty that normal people worship.) Some of her work on free speech issues suggests that, had she been nominated in 1776, she would restrict or actually outlaw Thomas Paine's Common Sense, as well as The Federalist Papers if James Madison and Alexander Hamilton refused to reveal who paid to publish their essays. What is with Obama and all these minions he surrounds himself with? Why do they hate this country so much? Another instance that should give any senate judiciary committee member pause are her efforts to restrict corporate campaign contributions, which by the way, are a form of speech. Her work on the First Amendment has repeatedly promoted the idea that rights come from government and not God. She elaborated on the subject of free speech in brief pertaining to the United States vs Stevens case in which she stated, "Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs." Uhhh excuse me? Balance? Who the hell decides  the balance? Obama? Pelosi? Kagan herself? Rahm Emanuel? Some other dictatorial federal bureaucrat? This is yet another example of Obama's hatred of America, and the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. I've heard it said Obama will not see a second term, and he probably won't. The question is, can the nation survive even a first term with Supreme Court picks like this?

Showing Their "Colors"

It seems a school can now pick which days of the week their students may wear or otherwise display the American flag. A student by the name of Daniel Galli and four of his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, California minding their own business when a vice principal ordered two of the boys to remove their American flag bandanas and the others to turn their American flag t-shirts inside out. When the boys refused, they were ordered to go to the principal's office. Says Daniel Galli, "They said we could wear it any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday." The holiday in question is Cinco de Mayo. The administrators called the boys' shirts "incendiary" and said they could lead to fights on campus. My opinion is this: bring it on. This is the United States of America, not Mexico. Can you imagine if Americans living in Mexico picked fights with Mexican citizens for displaying their national(Mexican) colors in their own country??!!?? This politically correct sensitivity crap has got to stop. Many Mexican-American students said they were offended by the boys' American colors being worn on "their" holiday. One student, Annicia Nunez said, "I think they should apologize because it's a Mexican Heritage day, we don't deserve to be disrespected like that." We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July." Well Annicia, I hate to tell you this, but you're not in Mexico anymore! You are in America, and I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you're here legally, so that means you are an American citizen! Not a Mexican citizen. A mother of one of the boys said, "I think it's absolutely ridiculous, all they were doing is displaying their patriotic nature and expressing their individuality." As for an apology, sorry Annicia, I doubt you'll get one. The boys and their parents have said, "Fat chance." Galli has stated, "I'm not going to apologize, I did nothing wrong. I went about my normal day." I might have worn an American flag, but I'm an American and I'm proud to be an American." Bravo to you Daniel Galli! Perhaps there is hope for this country yet if we keep raising kids like this young man. The five boys and their parents later met with a Morgan Hill Unified School District official on Wednesday night. The District and the school were not in agreement regarding the incident and released this statement: "The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions."
Wow, that kind of statement coming from the District Administration of a San Francisco Bay area school. Amazing. This incident just goes to show you where political correctness and Progressivism and globalism leads you.

WHAT SIDE DO YOU SIT ON?




If you've wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!



If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn`t buy one.

If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants guns outlawed.



If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.

If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants meat products banned.



If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.



If a conservative is down-and-out, he tries to better his situation.

A liberal wants to know who is going to fix it for him.



If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.

Liberals want those they don't like to be silenced.



If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.

If a liberal is a non-believer he wants any mention of religion silenced.



If a conservative needs health care he shops for it, or looks for a job that will provide it.

A liberal demands that the rest of us provide for it.



A conservative will read this and will forward it, so his friends can have a good laugh.

A liberal will read this and delete it, because he's offended.



Well, I forwarded it to you people, so you know where I sit!

From someone who works at The Kennedy Space Center (sent to me in email)

Hi Friends:




Thought you all might like to know what the "visit" from the President to the workers at the Kennedy Space Center was really like. The day before the meeting, a 747 landed and unloaded 6 limousines and a small army of his security staff. They drove 3 miles to the building where he would be, checked it out, then turned around and drove back and got into the 747 and left. (Your tax dollars at work).
The meeting was held at one of the smallest buildings on KSC. All the staff in this building were told to stay home and not come to work. Then only 40 guests were invited to hear him speak. ALL DIGNITARIES AND VIPS AND NOT ONE, I REPEAT NOT ONE, WORKER FROM ALL THOSE THAT WORK HANDS ON AND ACTUALLY WITH THE SHUTTLE WERE INVITED.
It was so staged and phony, it just makes my blood boil. Then that man said he wants to land on an asteroid!!!! Idiot. Here he is giving the Space Station to the Russians who want to charge us 100 million dollars per seat to fly one of our astronauts to the Space Station.
Just another case of the stacked deck. Rumor now has it that the last mission also may be canceled.

An Email from a Friend: Audie Murphy's Widow Dies

October 7, 1923 - April 8, 2010




Pamela Murphy, widow of WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, died peacefully at her home on April 8, 2010. She is survived by sons, Terry and James. Pam established her own distinctive 30 year career working as a patient liaison at the Sepulveda VA Hospital, where she was much beloved. Services will be held at Forest Lawn (Hollywood Hills) on Friday April 16 at 2:30PM



Pam Murphy, the widow of Audie Murphy, was involved in the Sepulveda VA hospital and care center over the course of 35 years, treating every veteran who visited the facility as if they were a VIP. Pam Murphy died last week at the age of 90.



 

After Audie died, they all became her boys. Every last one of them.


Any soldier or Marine who walked into the Sepulveda VA hospital and care center in the last 35 years got the VIP treatment from Pam Murphy. The widow of Audie Murphy – the most decorated soldier in World War II – would walk the hallways with her clipboard in hand making sure her boys got to see a specialist or doctor — STAT. If they didn't, watch out. Her boys weren't Medal of Honor recipients or movie stars like Audie, but that didn't matter to Pam. They had served their country. That was good enough for her. She never called a veteran by his first name. It was always "Mister." Respect came with the job. "Nobody could cut through VA red tape faster than Mrs. Murphy," said veteran Stephen Sherman, speaking for thousands of veterans she befriended over the years. "Many times I watched her march a veteran who had been waiting more than an hour right into the doctor's office. She was even reprimanded a few times, but it didn't matter to Mrs. Murphy. "Only her boys mattered. She was our angel."

Last week, Sepulveda VA's angel for the last 35 years died peacefully in her sleep at age 90.

"She was in bed watching the Laker game, took one last breath, and that was it," said Diane Ruiz, who also worked at the VA and cared for Pam in the last years of her life in her Canoga Park apartment. It was the same apartment Pam moved into soon after Audie died in a plane crash on Memorial Day weekend in 1971. Audie Murphy died broke, squandering million of dollars on gambling, bad investments, and yes, other women. "Even with the adultery and desertion at the end, he always remained my hero," Pam told me.

She went from a comfortable ranch-style home in Van Nuys where she raised two sons to a small apartment - taking a clerk's job at the nearby VA to support herself and start paying off her faded movie star husband's debts. At first, no one knew who she was. Soon, though, word spread through the VA that the nice woman with the clipboard was Audie Murphy's widow. It was like saying Patton had just walked in the front door. Men with tears in their eyes walked up to her and gave her a hug. "Thank you," they said, over and over.

The first couple of years, I think the hugs were more for Audie's memory as a war hero. The last 30 years, they were for Pam.

She hated the spotlight. One year I asked her to be the focus of a Veteran's Day column for all the work she had done. Pam just shook her head no. "Honor them, not me," she said, pointing to a group of veterans down the hallway. "They're the ones who deserve it."

The vets disagreed. Mrs. Murphy deserved the accolades, they said. Incredibly, in 2002, Pam's job was going to be eliminated in budget cuts. She was considered "excess staff." "I don't think helping cut down on veterans' complaints and showing them the respect they deserve, should be considered excess staff," she told me. Neither did the veterans. They went ballistic, holding a rally for her outside the VA gates. Pretty soon, word came down from the top of the VA. Pam Murphy was no longer considered "excess staff." She remained working full time at the VA until 2007 when she was 87. "The last time she was here was a couple of years ago for the conference we had for homeless veterans," said Becky James, coordinator of the VA's Veterans History Project.

Pam wanted to see if there was anything she could do to help some more of her boys.

Funeral services for Pam Murphy will be held Friday at 2:30 p.m. in the chapel at Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles. Dennis McCarthy's column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

Mexico's Immigration Law (from J. Michael Waller at Human Events)

Think Arizona's new immigration law is Nazi-like? Read this!


 Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:



in the country legally;

have the means to sustain themselves economically;

not destined to be burdens on society;

of economic and social benefit to society;

of good character and have no criminal records; and

contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:




immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;

foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;

foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;

foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;

foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;

those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.



Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:




Foreigners are admitted into Mexico "according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress." (Article 32)

Immigration officials must "ensure" that "immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents. (Article 34)

Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets "the equilibrium of the national demographics," when foreigners are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when "they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy." (Article 37)

The Secretary of Governance may "suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest." (Article 38)

Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:



Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)

A National Population Registry keeps track of "every single individual who comprises the population of the country," and verifies each individual's identity. (Articles 85 and 86)



A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).



Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:



Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)

Foreigners who sign government documents "with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses" are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)

Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:



Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)

Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)

Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico -- such as working with out a permit -- can also be imprisoned.



Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,



"A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally." (Article 123)

Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)

Foreigners who "attempt against national sovereignty or security" will be deported. (Article 126)

Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:



A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)

Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)

All of the above runs contrary to what Mexican leaders are demanding of the United States. The stark contrast between Mexico's immigration practices versus its American

immigration preachings is telling. It gives a clear picture of the Mexican government's agenda: to have a one-way immigration relationship with the United States.



Let's call Mexico's bluff on its unwarranted interference in U.S. immigration policy. Let's propose, just to make a point, that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member nations standardize their immigration laws by using Mexico's own law as a model.

Now after reading this, who has the more Nazi-like and/or draconian immigration law, Arizona or Mexico?

Letter To Obama at White house Sent from 95 year Old Pearl Harbor Survivor !! Fantastic!!




WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out !






This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.


Dear President Obama,


My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man. So here goes. I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. I can't figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

" We're no longer a Christian nation"
" America is arrogant" –(Your wife even
announced to the world," America is mean-
spirited. " Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)
I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to her ideals."
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know, the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don't want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight? You don't mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you're the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you're thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle...



Sincerely,

Harold B. Estes

S.B. 1070 Arizona's New Immigration Law (Fact Sheet)

Bravo to the Arizona state senate and Governor Jan Brewer!



Assigned to PSHS FOR COMMITTEE





ARIZONA STATE SENATE
Forty-ninth Legislature, Second Regular Session
FACT SHEET FOR S.B. 1070
immigration; law enforcement; safe neighborhoods
Purpose







Requires officials and agencies of the state and political subdivisions to fully comply with and assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws and gives county attorneys subpoena power in certain investigations of employers. Establishes crimes involving trespassing by illegal aliens, stopping to hire or soliciting work under specified circumstances, and transporting, harboring or concealing unlawful aliens, and their respective penalties.







Background







Federal law provides that any alien who 1) enters or attempts to enter the U.S. at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, 2) eludes examination by immigration officers, or 3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the U.S. by a willfully false or misleading representation is guilty of improper entry by an alien. For the first commission of the offense, the person is fined, imprisoned up to six months, or both, and for a subsequent offense, is fined, imprisoned up to 2 years, or both (8 U.S.C. § 1325).







The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the primary authority for enforcing immigration laws. ICE was created in March 2003 as an investigative branch of the Department of Homeland Security. ICE was the result of combining the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the U.S. Customs Service.







Current statute defines criminal trespass in the first degree as a person knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully in areas related to residential structures, residential yards, real property subject to a valid mineral claim or lease under certain circumstances, property if the person defaces religious symbols or religious property, or critical public service facilities. Depending on the circumstances, criminal trespass in the first degree provides penalties ranging from a class 1 misdemeanor to a class 6 felony (A.R.S. § 13-1504).







In 2007, Arizona enacted the Legal Arizona Workers Act (LAWA), prohibiting an employer from knowingly or intentionally employing an unauthorized alien and establishing penalties for employers in violation. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office administers the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program. The SAVE Program, together with the Social Security Administration (SSA), administers E-Verify, which allows employers to electronically confirm the employment eligibility of all newly hired employees. LAWA requires all Arizona employers to use E-Verify to verify the employment eligibility of new hires. Proof of verifying the employment authorization of an employee through E-Verify creates a rebuttable presumption that an employer did not intentionally or knowingly employ an unauthorized alien.



The fiscal impact is unknown; however, there may be additional costs associated with criminal prosecution and detention of persons who are accused and convicted of the crimes established in this legislation. Additionally, the addition of new fines associated with this measure may also have an impact.
