I was so proud, this morning, to see prayers around the flagpoles at two schools in our county. WAY TO GO! Exercising our freedom to worship while we still can!

I'd love to hear from others..........is this common all over our country?
Thursday, July 8, 2010
Our government officials under this administration are doing just that. They are providing support and encouragement of illegal behavior.
It shows their disregard for our country's well-being. These people (ILLEGAL immigrants) have broken law to enter our country....they have NO respect for ANY of OUR laws. Their country and culture is entirely different. They must often resort to violence and lawlessness to survive their own corrupt country.
Our citizenship requirements teach new prospects about OUR laws, language, history, & customs; thus providing a step towards assimilation. Daily, I see illegal immigrants breaking laws with no consequence.
1. I have seen 10 adults and 8 children pile out of a vehicle at a store. I see this type of offense frequently. There is no way possible to utilize the correct children's safety seats in this situation.
2. I have seen adults and children working together to steal at yard sales.
3. I have seen them get prepared food at the deli counter in a store, then discard the bag elsewhere in the store after eating the food; thus leave without paying for the food. They do this with other packaged foods as well. This makes OUR costs rise.
These are just a few examples of complete lack of respect.
I consider our country occupied. A group of people have illegally entered our country and
1. utilized our healthcare system - to the point of bankruptcy in many cases
2. utilized our education system to the point of ruin. Many classrooms are forced to slow down the learning process because of the children that do not know or understand our language - thus sacrificing the education of our children
3. tried to force our country to become bilingual or spanish speaking
4. lawlessness, often petty laws in which police are unwilling to waste time and resources because they will never be able to track them down again (due to illegal status).
5. brought 'gang' activity to every corner of our country, often bringing drugs, prostitution, and other crimes with it
6. taxing our country financially to the point that we may never recover
7. expect Americans to conform to their customs and learn their language
If we, as Americans, were doing this to another country, I can assure you there would be an uproar.
Arizona, in an effort to protect itself, is being "sued" by Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and his administration. Are the votes really worth it Mr. President? You are causing so much division and hostility in this country; after promising unity. All the years of work to try to overcome racism in our country....and within a couple of years in office, you have destroyed much of it. I hope you are proud of yourself and your "heritage". Perhaps you could move back to your homeland and "fix" that country as you are trying to "fix" our country. You are attempting to bring the same corrupt governing to the United States as you have experienced and seen in other countries.
I am not against legal immigration; and have a great respect for diversity. Forcing my children to conform to Mexican language & culture, however, is testing my patience.

So, since I can't micro-blog right now, I'll have to create a long overdue regular blog post.
The founding fathers of our nation would be ashamed!
For if men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter ~~~~~George Washington
Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny ~~~~~Thomas Jefferson
Our founding fathers were well studied in the history of dictatorship....after all, that is all the world had ever known. Their vision for a free people was new and radical. Furthermore, over time, we proved that free people are happy people. And happy people are successful people.
However, there will always be the feeble-minded that NEED dictatorship in their lives. They need someone telling them what they can say and when they can say it.
Woody Allen, who has lived a controversial life and produced, what I consider to be, rubbish films has now stated for the record that he feels Obama would make a nice dictator.
Read about Woody Allen's dictator statements here
And the Heritage Foundation shares all the details about the FCC's desire to take over and regulate the internet. WHAT????
Read about the FCC power grab here
And if that's not enough, Obama wants us to only trust what he says. All other information will just confuse you. Only trust what he says.........after all, he is so well versed and can speak with such eloquence.
Listen to Obama's speech here
So, he claims he doesn't know how to work an ipod, but
read here about his gift to the queen of England.....an ipod.
But back to the matter at hand, Obama's desire to socialize America. Social justice is what he wants & he will stop at nothing to get what he wants. His ability to ram through a healthcare bill that Americans overwhelmingly didn't want was his first mistake. And you can see here that our founding fathers realized that this could happen if the wrong people tried to gain too much power.
If the minority, and a small one too, is suffered to dictate to the majority, after measures have undergone the most solemn discussions by the representatives of the people, and their will through this medium is enacted into a law, there can be no security for life, liberty, or property; nor, if the laws are not to govern, can any man know how to conduct himself in safety. ~~~~George Washington
It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood ~~~~James Madison
So, what we have in Washington now are career minded politicians. People that realize the benefits of holding an elected position.....and the perks, privileges, and lifestyle. They are no longer servants of the people.
See for yourself.......these people will do whatever they must to get re-elected.
They will change parties....
Listen here, in his own words
They will lie! Blumenthal lies about his service in Vietnam.
Check out Blumenthal's lies
What else will they do to our beloved nation?
If you have NOT been involved until now, please become involved. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors. If not for yourself, think of the future generations. Our nation has always been the beacon........the standard that the world looks to for leadership & guidance.
Now, we are destined for a coup d'etat. For in the words of 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
and he also said
Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.
And to end this post, I'll state that Arizona's law was short & understandable and that they are protecting their citizens. I think our forefathers would be proud of Arizona. And so am I.

Here is a suspected bank robber.
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - Authorities need your help today to identify the suspect in an afternoon bank robbery. He’s described as a black male wearing a black coat, blue jeans, white shirt, and black hat with “DC” on on the front
Link full story about this crime
And here we have another suspected bank robber
6-foot-2 white male, in his late 20s
And a link to this full story
And last, I don't have a link to a full story for these suspects. The quantity of suspects is a little overwhelming, so I decided to help Arizona out. These are suspected of illegally crossing the United States border from Mexico. If you can identify any of these suspects, I'm sure Arizona would appreciate your assistance.
Based on the pictures, I would guess that the suspects are Mexican and of varying heights & weights.

So, if we are to follow the letter of the law regarding racial profiling, I'm going to make up a "situation". This is a purely fictional situation, directly from my over-active imagination. So humor me.
A man goes through a sub-division one day and breaks into 30 homes. He vandalizes property and kills 15 people. The subdivision is 95% caucasion. None of the homes had security cameras; but one person managed to hide & escape harm without detection and managed to provide a description of the "alleged" person committing crimes. The person drove a white SUV and was African American.
Now, as the police begin looking for this criminal, will they randomly search all white SUVs to make sure they are not accused of racial profiling? Or will they pull every black man driving a white SUV? Or will they search every white vehicle? When the folks in the neighborhood hold a candlelight vigil for the lost loved ones, will they accuse them of being racists? Will they drill the one surviving victim for evidence of racial insensitivity? When the police set up roadblocks to try to find the criminal, will every black man stopped try to sue the police for racial profiling? Or will the citizens complain that they were inconvenienced and refuse to produce identification on the grounds of invasion of privacy?
This insanity has got to stop.
We KNOW, using scientific methods of predicting odds, that a caucasion 95 year old woman will not bomb a plane.
We KNOW, using scientific methods of predicting odds, that a blonde hair blue eyed mother driving kids to soccer practice is probably NOT an illegal immigrant in a border state smuggling drugs.
Why can't we even use common sense any longer to protect citizens? The political correctness in our society has taken dangerous steps and protects the criminals instead of protecting the legal law-abiding citizens.
If I lived in Arizona, I certainly wouldn't mind showing my I.D. at any time. That's right, in the Walmart or on the road in a random road check. If I thought it was being done to protect citizens, I wouldn't mind. The only people that DO have a problem are the ones BREAKING the law. So, why are we protecting criminals in America?
It has gone too far & someone needs to reign in the communists; and if they truly desire a state contolled country, ship them to Cuba or Siberia. Give them a taste on the bottom end of communism. It is NOT eutopia for the bottom class. Communism does NOT eliminate classes. They are even more distinct. Politicians & Police are TOP and everyone else at bottom. Politicians vote themselves BIG pay and will control the pay of everyone else (just like Obama administration is trying to do now, controlling the pay in the private sector).
Wake Up America.

And what part of our laws are they talking about 'REFORMING'? They seem perfectly reasonable to me.
But, just to be fair, I'll give you some information I dug up and let you decide for yourself if our laws are "fair" or not. All of this information was researched by me and obtained using a variety of sources. However, if you are wishing to obtain more information or citizenship, please go directly to the country in which you desire to obtain citizenship.
UNITED STATES immigration laws allow the government to control population and make sure people have met requirements. We are learning what lack of population control leads to....chaos. When people come here legally and comply with our laws, they appreciate the true value of U.S. citizenship. It is an honor to be a legal citizen of this country. If anyone does not appreciate it, they should find another country in my list and make themselves at home somewhere else.
So, here are the Eligibility Requirements for citizenship in the U.S., taken directly from the official U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
To be eligible for naturalization under section 316(a) of the INA, an applicant must:
*Be 18 or older
*Be a permanent resident (green card holder) for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization
Have lived within the state, or USCIS district with jurisdiction over the applicant’s place of residence, for at least 3 months prior to the date of filing the application
*Have continuous residence in the United States as a permanent resident for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of the filing the application
*Be physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application
*Reside continuously within the United States from the date of application for naturalization up to the time of naturalization
*Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).
*Be a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States during all relevant periods under the law
Citizenship requirements in U.K., Australia, Canada, and Ireland are very similar to U.S. All require applicants "desire" to live in country, reasonable assimilation, and loyalty to the country.
FRANCE naturalization will only be successful for those who are judged to have integrated into French society (i.e. by virtue of language skills and understanding of rights and responsibilities of a French citizen, to be demonstrated during an interview at the local prefecture), and who show loyalty to French institutions.
GERMAN citizenship can only be applied for after a number of years; and you generally have to fulfill most or all of the following conditions:
*a valid Aufenthaltserlaubnis or Aufenthaltsberechtigung residency permit
*legally resident in Germany for at least 8 years
*a livelihood-guarantee of you and your dependants without recourse to social welfare or unemployment benefits (excpetions are made for people under 23 years)
*adequate knowledge of the German language
*an oath on the German consitutionein
*you have to give up your former citizenship
German citizenship is determined by inheritance from parents and not by place of birth. Children with a German mother or father are automatically citizens at birth. But not all children born in Germany are automaically German; in face, there are 100,000 non-German children born every year. If both parents are foreigners, then the child only gets German citizenship automatically from birth if one or more of the parents ahs been legally living in Germany for a period of 8 years and has a valid Aufenthaltsberechtigung or has had an unbefristete Aufenthaltserlaubnis for a period of three years. These children get German citizenship, as well as that of their parents. Then, they will choose which citizenship they wish to keep at age 18.
In general, birth within the terriotry of IRAN does not automatically confer citizenship. Citizenship may be acquired upon fulfillment of the following conditions: Person must be at least 18 years of age, have resided in Iran for 5 years, not be a miliatry service escapee, and not have been convicted of a major crime in any country. The wives and minor children of naturalized Iranian citizens are also considered citizens.
****Note**** Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal have been detained in Iran since July 31, 2009 when they accidentally crossed an unmarked border during a hiking trip in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan. They were in a peaceful region of Iraq that is increasingly popular with Western tourists. They are in prison and allowed limited contact with friends, family, and counsel desparately trying to get them released. These are three young persons that were simply hiking & enjoying nature. Just a note so you can see what kind of immigration enforcement Iran uses.
As of November 20, 2007, all foreigners, including foreign residents, get fingerprinted and photographed upon entering JAPAN as a measure aimed at preventing terrorism. People refusing to cooperate are not granted entry into the country.
*Foreigners, who wish to work in Japan, need to get a work visa from a Japanese embassy or consulate outside of Japan in order to enter the country on a status of residence permitting work.
*If you change jobs while you are in Japan and your new job falls into a different professional field (e.g. from education to engineering), you will need to change your status of residence.
*You MUST carry your visa with you AT ALL TIMES
*All foreigners, who stay in Japan for more than 90 days, need to apply for an alien registration card within the first 90 days of their stay. Applications are to be made at the local municipal office (e.g. city hall). The alien registration card is an important document required for opening a bank acount, obtaining a cell phone, and similar activities. Foreign residents are required to carry their alien registration card with them at all times
*Reside in Japan for at least 5 consecutive years (less if married to a Japanese National), have shown good conduct, have never plotted agains the Japanese government, have sufficient assets or ability to make an independent living and are willing to renounce any other citizenship held
*You must hand write in Japanese a letter stating why you desire citizenship
Now I'd like to address MEXICO requirements for citizenship or naturalization. Their constitution addresses all issues of citizenship and states that
• Immigrants and foreign visitors are banned from public political discourse. Article 33 “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.” Article 9 states, “only citizens of the Republic may do so to take part in the political affairs of the country.” Foreign-born, naturalized Mexican citizens may not become federal lawmakers (Article 55), cabinet secretaries (Article 91) or supreme court justices (Article 95).
• Immigrants and foreigners are denied certain basic property rights.
Article 27 states, “Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican companies have the right to acquire ownership of lands, waters, and their appurtenances, or to obtain concessions for the exploitation of mines or of waters. The State may grant the same right to foreigners, provided they agree before the Ministry of Foreign Relations to consider themselves as nationals in respect to such property, and bind themselves not to invoke the protection of their governments in matters relating thereto; under penalty, in case of noncompliance with this agreement, of forfeiture of the property acquired to the Nation.Under no circumstances may foreigners acquire direct ownership of lands or waters within a zone of one hundred kilometers along the frontiers and of fifty kilometers along the shores of the country.”
• Immigrants are denied equal employment rights.
Article 32: “Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable. In time of peace no foreigner can serve in the Army nor in the police or public security forces.”
• Immigrants and naturalized citizens will never be treated as real Mexican citizens.
Article 32 bans foreigners, immigrants, and even naturalized citizens of Mexico from serving as military officers, Mexican-flagged ship and airline crew, and chiefs of seaports and airports: “In order to belong to the National Navy or the Air Force, and to discharge any office or commission, it is required to be a Mexican by birth. This same status is indispensable for captains, pilots, masters, engineers, mechanics, and in general, for all personnel of the crew of any vessel or airship protected by the Mexican merchant flag or insignia. It is also necessary to be Mexican by birth to discharge the position of captain of the port and all services of practique and airport commandant, as well as all functions of customs agent in the Republic.”
The president of Mexico, like the president of the United States, constitutionally must be a citizen by birth, but Article 82 of the Mexican constitution mandates that the president’s parents also be Mexican-born citizens, thus according secondary status to Mexican-born citizens born of immigrants
• Immigrants and naturalized citizens may never become members of the clergy.
Article 130 says, “To practice the ministry of any denomination in the United Mexican States it is necessary to be a Mexican by birth.”
• Private citizens may make citizens arrests of lawbreakers (i.e., illegal immigrants) and hand them to the authorities.
Article 16 states, “in cases of flagrante delicto, any person may arrest the offender and his accomplices, turning them over without delay to the nearest authorities.” Therefore, the Mexican constitution appears to grant Mexican citizens the right to arrest illegal aliens and hand them over to police for prosecution.
• Immigrants may be expelled from Mexico for any reason and without due process.
According to Article 33, “the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.”
I think they are telling a little white lie; which, in my book, is just as bad as a Big Black Lie.
For the record, I am ANTI-racism.
First, I'd like to address Imus vs. Toettcher
It hasn't been that long ago that Don Imus was harassed; yes, I said harassed. Al Sharpton, whom I consider to be a racist, pubicly stated that he would put pressure on CBS to fire Imus for comments he made.
Fast forward to April 2010: Fred Toettcher makes a reference to Tebow's draft party: “it looked like some kind of Nazi rally. . . . So lily-white is what I’m trying to say. Yeah, Stepford Wives,” No coverage so far from anyone screaming for his resignation.
Imus was BIG NEWS for weeks, with all the mainstream media milking it dry. Let's see if Toettcher issue even gets covered, much less to the personal harassment level as was in the Imus case.
And I'll quote the now famous words of Janeane Garofalo: "This is racism straight up"
The next issue I'd like to address is another item I saw on the news yesterday. Chicago asking for the National Guard to restore order in the city.
Now, if Fred Toettcher wants to look at a group of people and make a broad "categorize" by the color of their skin.....then I think we should be allowed the same privilege. However, I suggest you keep your opinions to yourself or the media might be camped out in your front yard harassing you for racism.
Click here to read the MSNBC "Deadly Weekend" story
I think much of the problem starts in the home. As I was researching for this post, I came across a website in which the author questions if "white kids" have enough "anti-racist education". Well, I'd like to pose the same question. Do black children have any anti-racist education? Seems they go into the world with a chip on their shoulder and expect the government to give them handouts in reparation for something that happened 200 years ago. They hear about it in their homes and in their churches.
My father passed away when I was only 14 years old, but I remember him mentioning "Soul City". We lived in North Carolina, so it was in newspapers and on the evening news. This was a test community, supported by the government and awarded $14 million in HUD grant money. It began in the early 1970s, and the model was touted as a Eutopia of socialism. Totally self-sustaining with all the infrastructure to maintain the population; housing, parks, schools, police, the whole nine yards. By the late 1970s, there were lawsuits being filed for misuse of funds. If you drive there today, you'll see just how much got accomplished with all the money they were given. Not much. Many projects began, but not much completed. There is not much written on this Eutopia experiment, but have fun with the research. I listened to people grumbling about tax money going to fund an black community when I was young.....
Now, I'm sure I'll be called a racist simply because I mentioned Soul City. Go right ahead. I would be embarrassed too - had I wasted the money that was provided by the government to start a socially progressive city. You had your chance, and wasted it.
TEA PARTY vs. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SUPPORT rallies
Wow. I must say that I was impressed with the contrast in these groups. Yet the mainstream media has yet to point out the differences.
Allow me, please.
I have attended tea parties, in North Carolina and Washington, DC. They were generally peaceful with occassional loud chants such as "U.S.A." repeated over and over. I noticed people hugging each other, lots of American Flags, high fives, and exchanging of email addresses. They cleaned up behind themselves and respected the property they were on. No riotous or violence whatsoever.
In Arizona, the governor decided to take a bold step to protect the LEGAL citizens against what was proving to be a problem in their state; and one that the federal government was doing nothing to help with.
So, African Americans and Immigrants (many illegal) gather to protest the law. Destruction, Riots, and Violence.
So, the mainstream media focuses on the hostile "brandishing of placards" of the tea party protesters and glorifies the illegal immigrants.
Where am I? I have a feeling I'm not in Kansas any more.
Monday, April 26, 2010
Now, when the Today Show comes on, if it gets left on because I'm too busy to change it......well, it's really just to stay on top of my game & know what my opponents are thinking. Or sometimes their lack of balanced journalism makes for good entertainment. It's funny to watch Matt get red-faced & riled up when someone conservative challenges his political correctness. No longer are they a resource for current meaningful journalism. They are, in my opinion, socialists, quite possibly more intent on communism and their ability to control every aspect of our lives.
They decide when something is no longer a moral issue. Then, they force their opinions on the entire country, like it or not. Hmmmm. Sounds kinda like a dictatorship, huh?
Well today was just the icing on my little cupcake. I was busy in the kitchen when I heard them discussing the financial reform. Someone mentioned an email to an investor in which it celebrated how the housing crash was going to be a financial benefit.
Okay, for those folks that are unfamiliar with options, shorting, and hedge fund investing........this might seem shocking. Which is exactly what the media wanted. SHOCK media. They found someone to hang in order for the government to take more control and they will paint a picture for the public that will glorify government control.
Now, I'm not saying that everything all brokers do is right or moral, but to throw someone under the bus for making money on a legal gamble is wrong. This is all a part of our financial industry..........and is NOT intentionally preying on disaster. That, my friends, is reserved for the ambulance chasing trial lawyers. But the trial lawyers end up like, oh let's just say John Edwards as an example. And if they are holding elected positions, they will do whatever they can to defend their cronies. Most financial industry people love their work & love the action; despite the heartburn. I loved it.
So, before you listen to lamestream media and allow them to help form your opinion, do a little research. These investments are highly risky and not allowed for those that don't have huge disposable income and can afford huge losses. But if not for the risktakers, there wouldn't be many of the opportunities for the middle class. So, when they occassionally profit from one of their risks, we can't hang them. That's kind of like biting the hand that feeds you.
do research. I know there is a lot of wrong-doing in the inudstry. I'm firsthand witness to some of it. But a government takeover is not the answer.
