No! The end IS in sight!

No! The end IS in sight!
"And in those days there will be signs in the heavens!"

Who wrote the National Anthem?

"The only thing necessary for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing!" I shall not be silenced! I shall demand truth! "Any thought left unchallenged is established as fact!" The thought that this is a "Muslim nation" is a lie! I shall challenge any insane individual that makes this claim! Nor were the founders of this nation and the framers of the Constitution deists!
My Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, was and is the living Son of the living Jehovah God! Allah is not "just another name for the Jehovah God Jews and Christians worship!" Allah is a god fabricated by the Prophet Mohammed and is celebrated in the Qu'ran as a "great deceiver!"

Veritas! Latin for truth.

Veritas. "Very and verily" get their origins from this word.

"Proof of facts and documentation are meaningless and irrelevent in an age that does not cherish truth!" Kenneth Schustereit (Arrogant wasn't it?)

There's an old Hebrew proverb that says the most powerful thing on the earth is truth, it never changes!

A newspaper that refuses to allow the truth to be printed and legitimate commentary on that truth by people who actually put their names on what they write has become a rag!

Kind of like my local paper!

My maternal grandfather lay in a trench in 1919 for three days with a bullet hole in his leg so I could stand up and declare the truth!

It's a shame when a 200 year old newspaper becomes a rag!

Survival tip #2

Make your own laundry soap! How many out there are tired of buying laundray soap and every time you turn around the bottle gets smaller and you see that "2Xs concentrated" but when you pour it in the washing machine it seems soupier than the last time?

Make your own! Buy a box of Borax Laundry booster, some hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and various types of shampoo you pick up at garage sales. Use a grater and grate up a couple of bars of Ivory soap and you're on your way to washing much cheaper!

Oh and by the way, powdered laundry soap from Mexico costs about 1/3 what American liquids do!

Save about five empty milk jugs. Add a cup of Borax to each. Grate up one bar of Ivory soap per gallon and add to two 10 quart cooking pots. Heat the water up. Don't biol it. Add 1/2 cup of peroxide and 1/4 cup of baking soda. Pour this heated mixture into the five gallon jugs. Add the shampoo to each.

You can pick up shampoo and bubble bath really cheap at second hand, resale shops and garage sales. This makes excellent laundry presoak too!

Just another way to survive times that are only going to get harder!

However, the Lord did not make his children to endure the times to come!

King David said, "I have been young and I have been old and I have never seen the righteous forsaken of his seed begging bread!" Use the money you save to feed someone!

Survival tip #1

In these times that are getting harder and harder think about a time when you won't be able to buy prescription medicines. It's coming! Get used to the idea!

Foot neuropathy and foot pain.

Take a pint salve jar and add three tubes of generic, non-greasy muscle rub. Add three tubes of Ora-jel or generic benzocaine. Crush six Ibuprophen and four Darvocet or Perkocet and three naproxen sodium into a fine powder. Add the contents of six capsules of indomethicin, two crushed niacin tablets. Add six crushed Levitra or Viagra or Cialis. Empty the contents of six L-Arginine caps. Add two ounces of DMSO from the feed store and add the contents of six neurontin caps if you can find it.
All of the tablets and caps must be crushed into a fine powder. Lastly, add two tubes of hydrocortizone cream.

Mix it well. Let it sit and mix it again. This mixture should be slowly rubbed into freshly washed feet then covered with socks before bed!

Works well on both neuropathy and foot pain.

Next time you go to the doctor ask him for a tube of lidocaine gel and a script for some 2.5% hydrocortizone cream. This will be a good addition to this foot salve.

Christianity vs. socialism

TRUE Christianity, taught by true ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ, is about, after acceptance and public acknowledgement of Jesus as one's only salvation and Way to the Father, service and giving.
Service and giving! I have an almost irresistable urge to serve and give to others. Especially to those I know are in need. It's almost a compulsion! I will often give the last penny I have to those in need. Any true Christian will feel the same. With Jesus in our heart in the person of the Holy Spirit, we instinctively want to give, to help, to serve, to supply and provide.

On the other hand, socialism is more about coveteousness and taking. A man works hard all his life to provide for his children and grandchildren-to leave a legacy of provision. He plans ahead and wants to be a good provider for his family and along comes socialistic government, looking at all he has ammassed and takes a share of that and gives it to others THEY feel need what he has worked for!

Government, by force of arms TAKES what one man works for to give to another man! I went out to the garden yesterday and picked vegetables. I moved the water hose. I walked over to the orchard and turned on a valve to water the pecan trees. I moved a soaker hose to water the grapes and figs. From the sweat of MY brow and MY labor I shall eat fresh squash for lunch.

If I decide to sell some of my produce and crops I will take the money I make and drive to town. I'll buy some gas for the truck. I'll buy some cheese to go into the squash. I'll buy some seed and other groceries. That is what capitalism is all about. Buying and selling. Making a profit. Spending that profit by investing in more seed for the fall crop.

Socialism seeks to take a larger and larger portion of my profits to give to other people. Many of whom do not sweat or work for themselves. And THEY work only to put more socialist-thinking people in office to provide themselves what I work and sweat for!

As primary caregiver for my mother I am unable to leave the house for more than a few hours at a time so I visit construction sites and ask for salvage materials. The more metals and useable wood and building materials I haul off and recycle and reuse the more money the contractor saves because he pays by the ton to have it hauled away. I picked up a stainless steel hand rail to help keep my mother from falling tonight at 9:50 PM out of a construction dumpster. I seperate and sell the metals I don't keep for my own projects and save the other building materials for those projects. I pick up large amounts of cardboard to add to my brush pile where I burn building materials and use a magnet to glean metals from the ashes and recycle them.
By the sweat of my brow I have made work, created income from work others will not do. It helps the environment, keeps materials out of the landfill which helps the community, provides me nearly free building materials, does away with a large amount of waste and creates commerce. It's very hard, grueling work!

And I do all of this while caring for my aging mother and raising crops to feed both myself, my mother and people I sell and give my produce to. Capitalism at it's finest.

And yet, my property taxes went up again this year while the actual selling price of land and real estates has either remained static or dropped. Socialist government wants it's cut of the work I have done.

There is a strong Christian value that those who do not work do not eat! That's the way it should be. Socialism has a SIMILIAR value but it doesn't care much for those who do not produce! My mother is 74 years old and about the only thing she can produce is prayer for her children and grandchildren! Prayer is a valuable commodity to the Christian faith but is useless to the socialist.

A friend and hanger-on around our president, Ezekiel Emmanuel, has said that "useless eaters" are worthless. To Emmanuel, my mother is a useless eater and therefore worthless. Our president Barak Obama has told the American people to judge him by the people around him! And he has surrounded himself with radical socialsits, communists, fascists and sexual perverts.

My conclusion is that what I love the most; sweating and hard work providing for myself and others around me-others in whom I see a need, is deemed a bad thing by the average socialist and it must be stamped out! Stamped out how? By taxing me out of business and allowing my mother to go uncared for until she's gone!

True Christianity is about service and giving, true socialism is about one coveting what another has worked for and taking it by force of government and giving it to whomever HE deems deserving! True socialists believe in the central government planning and distribution of resources it takes through confiscatory taxation to both themselves to people THEY wish to give it to!

China suffered from this very thing between 1958 and 1961. The People's Liberation Army went into the rural areas of China and confiscated foodstuffs grown by the people and hauled it away to the cities and fed themselves and people THEY deemed worthy to survive. Literally millions died due to socialist central planning! And during this time the Chinese propaganda machine was hard at work as we see in the photo! Socialism is a work of deception!

In 1932 and 1933 the Soviet Army rolled in to the bread basket of the Soviet Union, the Ukrane, and confiscated every scrap of food they could find! This act by the Soviet government is still remembered as Holodomor! And thanks to socialist central planning, literally millions of people in a land of plenty starved to death! People who worked and sweat to produce, to provide were rewarded for their labor with Holodomor!

Lastly as we examine the differences between true Christian principals and socialism let us look at the direction THIS nation is headed! In 2007, for the first time in modern history, this country became a net food importer. The USDA is promoting agricultural practices that push American farmers to grow less food. Much of Texas' winter garden has moved over the border to Mexico. Our production and processing of foodstuffs and meat products has moved away from the consumer. Our foodstuffs are dependent on a fragile transportation system and Americans have moved away from gardening and growing their own food. In the name of safer food the USDA is promoting a program called "Farm to fork." Google it! This p[rogram alone will drive up the cost of food!

Christian, biblical principals are all about service and giving and socialism is all about taking and distributing! Are YOU a useless eater? And who is worthy to decide when another becomes a useless eater? Think about it!

Institutional corruption as a policy!

1974, summer, it was hot! I was in the Victoria County Jail. Spent two weeks in Tank 2 before the Sheriff made me a trustee. Sheriff Dalton "Dutch" Meyer was a friend of my grandfathers and Pop was sick. Sheriff Meyer laet me out to visit him before he passed. Let me out for his funeral too.
Anyway, while I was in the tank we were visited by a well-known local businessman preaching the Word to us inmates. I could quote John 3:16 and he was impressed so I asked him for a job when I got out. He promised me one and made good on it! Then I was impressed.
Uh...er...until I saw how his business operated. It was corrupt! Selling un-needed car repairs. In a meeting we were told to cut off every valve stem on every wheel we put a tire on and we'd get .25 cents out of the $1.75 charged for the valve stem.
This was corporate, institutionalized fraud, theft and corruption as a matter of policy! Hmmm! Maybe these folks needed to spend some time in Tank 2!

Today it's much worse! Went to Wal-Mart tonight and they have a bulk items "Rollback" isle! And there it was, Kraft Miracle Whip at $1.97! Boy, that's cheap! HOWEVER, look closely! It's not in a quart jar anymore! It's a 30 ounce jar!
I spoke about rising food prices two years ago on the local rag and got labeled a fear monger for it! Well Archie, I told you so!

And it's everywhere you look at almost all commercial businesses. Went to Sears to buy lawnmower blades. Always makes me grit my teeth paying $38.00 for two blades made of such soft metal they don't get past the second sharpening! The nice young man said, "You can get $15 off if you apply for a credit card," so I figured I'd just get my discount and pay the other $18 and cut up the card and poof!
Ooooooh no! What the nice young man didn't tell me was there was a $59 yearly fee! So to get a $15 discount I was on the hook for $59! He even folded the reciept for me to sign in such a way that I couldn't see the yearly fee!
Corporate corruption as a matter of policy!

Greed, covetousness and outright fraud is everywhere! Chuckle! My local paper hired an admitted plagerist!

Immigration activism; read it and weep for America!

This blog post is a brief examination of just a small portion of the activism we see in America today! Activism designed to destroy the fabric of what should be a united nation. Activism that is just as racist and just as destructive as the activism of groups like the Arian Nation and KKK(of which two of my ancestors belonged).

I have noted, over many years of my own activism, that the average Hispanic/Latino citizen of these United States does, in no way, exemplify the sentiments and hatred of those quoted below.

As for the sentiments I express; not only am I aware of the richness of the Hispanic/Latino culture and what that culture has blessed this nation with, I am aware that some of those crossing the southern border are my own close blood relatives.

Therefore, any accusation that I am somehow prejudiced or bigoted in my examination of this issue is patently false and an example of racial profiling. Nor would this examination violate the user policy of any NORMAL newspaper.

My intermittent comments will be in bold italics:

As Mr. Horowitz is Jewish I trust no one will hurl the words “bigot” or “prejudiced” at him. “Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes.” I find this both naïve and amusing since the further you travel into Mexico and indeed the purer the actual Spanish blood, the more you find “pale skin and blue eves!” This is a prime example of the racial profiling that is NOT making headlines! Please examine the credentials this “professor” has been gifted with at the expense of every Texas and American taxpayer; even those with “pale skin and blue eyes;”

From Tejano Voices, University of Texas at Arlington

This learned and highly educated individual has received, of the Texas and American taxpayer. the best of the best educational opportunities at the best institutions the tax dollar can build and provide and in return he has spit in the faces of those very same taxpayers!

The very idea that this individual represents the feelings and opinions of the average American Hispanic is insulting! The idea that those Hispanics who hold more Congressional Medals of Honor than any other race are represented by the likes of this individual are patently outrageous!

The idea that those Texicans of Hispanic descent who died at the Alamo DEFENDING IT’S WALLS, are represented by this individual is an outrage!

Gloria Molina;
"Tonight Latinos across this country are coming together and they are shouting one thing - we are united. And we are united because we want to demand the kind of political respect that we should have. We demand to be counted. And what we know as well is that the big giant that they keep talking about is awakening. And he's pretty angry about what's going on. Ya basta! (enough). This community is no longer going to stand for it.
Because tonight we are organizing across this country in a single mission, in a plan. We're going to organize like we've never organized before. We are going to go into our neighborhoods, we are going to register voters, we are going to talk to all of those young people who need to become registered voters and go out to vote and we are politicizing every single one of those new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country.
And what we are saying is by November we will have one million additional Latino voters in this country, and we are going to march, we are going to march right to the ballot box because we are tired of being taken advantage of for far too long and the only thing that many of these people are going to respect is our vote.
And our vote is going to be important. But I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, 'I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to PAY THEM BACK!'
And this November we are going to remember those that stood with us and we are also going to remember those that have stood against us on the issues of immigration, on the issues of education, on the issues of health care, on the issues of the minimum wage.
So let's all remember that we're united across the country, in Chicago, in New York, in San Antonio, in Sacramento, in all of this country we are coming together to remind everyone, su voto es su voz. Muchismas gracias.

I would question here what the very pretty Ms. Molina wants to “pay them back” for? Her education paid for by the taxpayer? Is it the intention of Ms. Molina to turn the streets of Los Angeles into the same slums we see in Mexico City or Maztlan? If so she has a good start!

Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council. "They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay."

Alatorre, was fined twice for conflict of interest violations and was convicted on federal tax evasion charges for failing to pay over $42,000 in income taxes.
Audio of his comments and documentation of the various charges are available at snopes.com

"We're here to stay." Is the intention of Mr. Alatorre to imply that white Americans want to deport all Hispanics? Personally, I'm glad Hispanic/Americans are "here to stay" since I love both the language and the cultural richness of the race! I would question whether the activists, Professor Gutierrez, Ms. Molina and Mr. Alatorre would like to spend a year living in MS-13 gang territory in Los Angeles and THEN preach this same bigoted, racist garbage?

I also find it interesting that none of these people actually live on the border and suffer the violation of their private property that border residents of all races do.

I also find it interesting that the Arizona immigration law, that the Obama administration admits they didn’t even read before claiming racism, was passed with 70% approval of that state’s voters. Now that number is not even possible without a significant number of Hispanic voters.

Am I a “hater” as I was labeled in the local paper (The Victoria Advocate)? Yes! I’m a hater! I hate racial prejudice! I can’t stand being in the same room with a bigot, no matter the color of his or her skin! I hate “hate” simply because Jesus hated hate!

What and whom do I love? I love Jesus first! I love my family! I love my Hispanic family members! I love my heritage, even my Native American Mandan heritage! I love being of service to others! Of any and all skin color! I love my church family the black ones, the brown ones and the white ones! I love my pastor, a Chagga tribesman from the slopes of Mount Kilamanjaro, Tanzania, East Africa! I love his family and serve them on a regular basis! I love Ys’rael and all Jews! I serve Ys’rael and all Jews!

I also love my country! I have served my country in it’s military alongside my black and Hispanic brothers and sisters. I love the sovereignty and independence this nation was founded on and I love the opportunity that sovereignty has provided to people of all races, skin color and religions! I love my neighbor, of whatever skin color, as myself!

What these people practice and preach are the politics of division, strife, hate and offense against the very nation from which they have benefited. They preach offense and seperatism in a nation that needs healing and unification! Not the unification of the seperate races but the unification of all races with respect and even honor to the richness those different cultures bring to the whole!

Travel to Houston on the Katy Freeway(I-10) and turn north on Eldridge Parkway! Running parallel to that Interstate just about ten blocks north is Longpoint Avenue. It's an older part of Houston where the big retailer have moved out. In those spots is a menagere of cultures; Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Chinese, Korean, Arabic and African/American. You can get any kind of food cooked right in front of you! It's a wonderful place to visit and buy anything from resale items to gold jewelry! Talk about richness! Talk about tolerance! Talk about diversity! It's all there! A wonderland of smells, colors, sights, and sounds of the culture of the world! All together, in harmony, in one place! That, is what America is all about! Not the hatred preached by those quoted here! This is the America I love! Not the ingratitude and division preached with vile hatred spewed by those quoted above!

Oh, and one last thing I can’t stand; I can’t stand a stinking ingrate! Hmmm! But I’ve said that before haven’t I?

A definition to consider!

Capital flight is defined as;
"The movement of money from one investment to another in search of greater stability or increased returns. Sometimes specifically refers to the movement of money from investments in one country to another in order to avoid country-specific risk (such as high inflation or political turmoil) or in search of higher returns. Capital flight is seen most commonly in massive foreign capital outflows from a specific country, often at times of currency instability. Often, the outflows are large enough to affect a country's entire financial system."

Let's look at that again; "Often, the outflows are large enough to affect a country's entire financial system."

The country of Mexico, in the 80s, was benefiting from over $10 million per year in wages sent home by illegal workers in the U.S. and since that time the number has risen into the billions.

That is money NOT creating commerce here. NOT putting Americans to work. NOT being spent here. It is a drain on this country's economy but can anyone actually say it's a boost to Mexico's economy?

I mean all you have to do is go to Google or Bing Images and type in Poverty in Mexico and tens of thousands of photos are there! Right there for all to see!

What all do NOT see is where all that money is going!

Capital flight always has been and is now a clear and present danger to the stability of this country's economy! It's a clear and present danger to our way of life!

And neither political party has done anything to stop that flight!

Why? Democrats and organizations like LULAC, MALDEF, La Raza want more peasants for their patron democracy! People who will vote however the patron tells them. This is an insult to those Hispanics who are just as intelligent as anyone else but it grows every day!

Republicans want more illegals here because the wish to drive wages down and I am sad to say they want better, more motivated hard working people! A scarse commodity
amongst almost three generations of American workers! George W. Bush put troops on the border but all they did was build vehicle barriers and make a show. He didn't want to stem the tide! It would have hurt his fatcat buddies in industry!

Caught in the middle are those people, Hispanic and Anglo, who live on the border who are victimized on a regular basis by this influx.

Is there a solution? Of course, there is! The most scary solution anyone has ever considered doing! I wrote about this over twenty years ago and the situation has only grown worse! The solution is to-are you ready for this-put people to work! Put Americans to work! Cut welfare and food stamps for every single able-bodied man and woman! Cut the programs that pay women to have children! Repeal the Davis/Bacon Act and put stringent new regulations on unions.

Ah, yes! Such harsh measures! Actually make people work for a living for a change! People becoming skilled workers again! Learning how to fit pipe! Training a new generation of industrial workers skilled in their crafts and trades! Start building America again!

Revolutionary I know! And for these radical notions I was kicked off the local rag!

"Service!" A forgotten concept!

On page 342 and 343 of "Great People of the Bible and How they Lived" there is a pencil art scene of a biblical times Hebrew wedding.

On the right hand side a man arrives and the lowlyist servant washes the feet of the newly arriving guest.

Jesus, the Christ/Messiah/Machiach/Anointed One girded himself and started washing the feet of his deciples as an indication a type & shadow of his service to mankind! He lowered himself! God in the flesh humbled himself to wash the feet of his creation!

Service! Service to one another! Service by a man to his neighbor! Service by harvesting his crops while he's in the hospital. The service of a farmer coming in from the field and seeing his wife weary with cooking and cleaning and sitting her down and giving her a good shoulder rub while his own feet are on fire!

Generally speaking, this type of service is a forgotten concept!

Perhaps if we all tried to live more like Jesus did we'd live in a better world! Simplistic isn't it?

Sweat is what it takes to create things, to build things to produce! Many Americans have lost that talent!

There was a time when we were an industrious and determined people! Due to a number of factors we have generally lost that!

I had a Job experience. No not a job experience, a biblical Job experience. I lost everything! I very nearly lost my life!

In the space of five years I lost my health, I lost my ability to work, my life's savings were wiped out almost over night. I lost two vehicles to the repo man. I had two side jobs and lost both of them. I tried to go back to work and broke my foot the second day. I was diagnosed with the start of conjestive heart failure, Type II diabetes, high blood pressure and foot neuropathy. I visited the office of the woman I deeply and truly loved and heard her office mates repeating her boast of Demi Moore who had married Ashton Cutcher an actor half her age because she was living with a former office mate half HER age. My son had been transferred to St. Petersburg, Florida and I found out that an international corporation had told a potential employer that I was a convicted felon and implied that I had served seven years in prison and none of it true! For two years I had zero income!

Yes, I could say I'd had a Job experience. I mean, what else could I lose? And then my father died a terrible death. The only good thing was that I knew he is with the Lord!

How could this be happening? I tithed, gave offerings, did alms and had a ministry of helps to the Pastor and how could this happen to me?

It was a slow, gut wrenching climb back up but I lost 165 pounds and got with the right doctors/got the right meds and in late 2008 I was up in the top of a construction dumpster taking out some plywood needed for the remodeling to a renthouse that was given to me and the Lord finally spoke! He said, "Now you know how to survive!" I wept!

I thought about it all the next day and examined the changes he made in my life. Since I was unable to get away from the house more than a few hours at a time because I was and am the primary caregiver for my mother, I learned who and how to ask to salvage construction sites.

I learned that there wasn't anything legal I wouldn't do to make an honest dollar. It's amazing what a man's pride being stripped away will lead him to if he's a committed Christian!

I had a learning experience and the Lord doesn't teach a class that severe unless those skills learned won't be needed!

I believe America has a Job experience coming! A storm is coming indeed! Are you ready?

A $23 billion teacher bail-out?

How about it? A cart load of money to buy a loaf of bread? Sweeping money up off the streets like trash? Stacking worthless bank notes? Hmmm! How about that young trillionaire?

Didn't someone say that if we don't learn from history we are doomed to repeat it?
Hmmm! You'd think teachers, educated and supposedly intelligent would know all of this! I guess not!

A $23 billion teacher bail-out for a profession that is currently turning out an inferior product!

And the money! Where's it going to come from? We have two options; borrow it from the Chinese or just print the money. Now since the Chinese aren't lending any more and are trying to convince others not to lend to the United States the only other option is to print the money.

Hmmm! Now since Ben Bernanke ordered $1.2 trillion in new currency printed up in March of last year, are we nopw to believe we will need to print even more?

And since the Obama administration and congress is still holding more than $34 billion in unspent TARP money, why print up more?

And how much of the stimulus money from last year is still unspent?

And shouldn't we consider all of this money funny money since there's nothing backing it?

It seems all we are doing is re-arranging the deck chairs on a sinking ship!

A storm is coming!

Money: The root of all evil?

No! The LOVE of money is the root of all evil! I hate what the love of money and the things money can buy does to people!

In order to alleviate present crises governments down through history have just printed up money without thought of consequences. Resulting in hyper-inflation, usually ending in terrible poverty and eventual war!

In order to increase one's own immediate comfort and desire for the THINGS money can buy people have cheated, lied, murdered and maimed without thought of consequences, immediate or future.

Let me tell you a story;

Linda (not her real name) met Robert (not his real name) at a night club where I tended bar. A perfect match! Everyone saw it and so did Linda and Robert! Both about the same age. Both nice looking people. Both well-liked and popular. He worked at a local industrial plant and owned a house in a nice neighborhood. She held a clerical position and lived in a mobile home in a secluded rural neighboprhood. Both had nice lives and their meeting made things nicer.

It was obvious to all that she loved him (she told me several times) and he literally worshipped her(he was ready to scream it to the world!).

Problem! When a younger girl Linda has suffered from some very severe poverty. She was grimly determined never to go back there again. It seems that while Robert's financial position was nicely fixed it still wasn't enough for Linda.

In steps Bill(not his name). Bill is a multi-millionaire rancher from a nearby small town. He's no match for Linda. He's crude and pretentious! Obnoxious and loud and Linda would be just another posession. He bought her a diamond ring with a rock so big it weighed her arm down.

I had occasion to visit with Linda at length and she admitted she loved Robert but intended to marry Bill. And she did!

And so is the way of the world! A sick world! This literally broke Robert's heart! From that time, the early nineties to today, he has never been the same. Linda, a stunningly pretty woman for her age, aged terribly. BUT she was rich!

Not my definition of rich but she was rich!

And by the purest definition of the word, she was and is a prostitute. Immediate creature comforts and wealth were more important to her than the love she had for a very nice fellow and her perfect match!

Today! In America today we look for immedicate comfort. Immediate relief without sacrifice! This is the reason we have now begun to borrow from and steal from our grandchildren! This is why we have monetized our national debt by printing money.

Like linda, we have prostituted ourselves and put the next two generations of American children(those we haven't butchered in abortion mills) into debt that we ourselves cannot begin to pay!

There's a storm coming people!

A storm is coming because since the "Greatest Generation" we have raised almost three generations of children who have lost the grit and determination to work hard and sweat at a trade or craft building this nation!

We SHALL pay for this!

A storm is coming!

I can't stand a stinking ingrate!

Let me see, the Sunni minotity in Iraq had butchered the Shiite majority for decades under Saddam Hussein. At the cost of American lives we free the Shiites and now they attack us with car bombs and IEDs! Worthless stinking ingrates!

Walaki, the American born and educated Muslim cleric urges his fellow stinking, murdering ingrates to kill innocent Americans!

So, what does Islam teach that makes ingrates out of normal human beings?

What does Islam teach that would make a man teach his children to hate others who are different?

Are we, indeed, a Christian nation?

Hmmm! These soldiers certainly aren't praying to Allah!

I though I would pass this on to those agnostics and athiests our there still claiming this nation was not founded on Christian principals! Some even claim the founding fathers were deists. They know this is a lie but they tell it anyway! Like Hitler, they tell the "big lie!"

President Barack Obama said in Turkey : "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation.
We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."

I found this very interesting.

Another story not told!

This just in from KING5 and A.C.E.*:



Posted on May 21, 2010 at 8:16 PM

Updated yesterday at 6:22 PM

•Alleged rapist caught in Edmonds
•Edmonds rape suspect deported 4 times

EDMONDS, Wash. – The KING 5 Investigators have learned that an illegal immigrant accused of raping a woman in Edmonds Sunday has been deported nine times. That's much more than previously reported.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement won't comment on the case of Jose Lopez Madrigal. But KING 5 got the information through confidential sources and documents.

Larry Klein was the man who heard the alleged victim's cries for help. Police say the suspect pulled the woman off the street to a dumpster and raped her.

"I could see the back of his head. I could see his pants were down. I could see her lying on the ground. I could hear her crying, but I couldn't really see her face," said Klein.

Klein called police, who quickly arrested the suspect. But learning his identity took much longer because of some 30 aliases. It was only through fingerprints that they identified him as Madrigal, a Mexican citizen.

Madrigal's arrest and immigration record includes a staggering number of contacts with law enforcement since 1989. That's the year he was convicted of theft using a firearm in California.

He was deported a couple of times after that. Then in 1999, he was arrested for drug sales in both San Diego and San Francisco. Records show that he was deported three times that year between April and August.

He was arrested for drugs again in Stockton, Calif. in 2000. In 2002, he pleaded to third degree sexual assault in Denver. Later that year, he was deported again. And in 2003, records show he was deported three more times.

People who live near the scene of Sunday's alleged rape wonder how it could keep happening.

"Makes you wonder, what are we doing wrong? How is he getting back in here?" said Kirby Aumick.

"It’s troubling. I mean, if this man should not have been in this country, he should have been behind bars then, really, this is a senseless tragedy," said Klein.

According to our sources, Madrigal's last contact before Sunday was around 2003. So, it's not clear how much of that time Madrigal was in this country.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has refused to comment on the case which started making national headlines when it was learned that Madrigal had been deported several times prior to the Edmonds case.

In reviewing records and talking with confidential sources, the KING 5 Investigators learned just how extensive Madrigal’s immigration and arrest record is.

They found he was first deported in California in 1989 and since then he’s returned from his Mexican homeland and been arrested for drug crimes, a sex assault in Colorado and other offenses.

One criminal justice source says Madrigal is a "poster boy" for the federal governments ineffectiveness at keeping the most serious "criminal aliens" – illegals who commit crimes – out of the United States."

The republicans, generally speaking, don't want immigration reform because they want cheap labor! The democrats, specifically speaking, don't want reform because they want more people on public assistance and dependent on the socialist order they are growing! MALDEF, LULAC and LaRaza, specifically speaking, want more people dependent on the patron democracy they are growing! Business, commercial and inductry don't want reform, specifically speaking, because illegal immigrants make better workers than many young Americans! Why is this? Simply because we have raised two generations of children who not only don't want to sweat and work hard learning a trade or craft but don't know how to work!

As someone in supervision at an industrial plant in the recent past, I can say that ilegals were the best overall hands we had. They worked harder, came to work sober, showed up to work every day, didn't study too hard for their piss test, listened carefully to instructions and did the best job they knew how to do!
I'm sad to say I had very few American young people with those attributes!

A story not told? You won't see this on the Evening News on ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN!

Not one dime!

That's what our president promised when he was on the campaign trail. If you make less than $250,000 per year you could expect "not one dime" in new taxes!

And yet under HR3590 we see:
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Enrolled as Agreed to or Passed by Both House and Senate)



(a) In General- Section 6051(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (relating to receipts for employees) is amended by striking `and' at the end of paragraph (12), by striking the period at the end of paragraph (13) and inserting `, and', and by adding after paragraph (13) the following new paragraph:

`(14) the aggregate cost (determined under rules similar to the rules of section 4980B(f)(4)) of applicable employer-sponsored coverage (as defined in section 4980I(d)(1)), except that this paragraph shall not apply to--

`(A) coverage to which paragraphs (11) and (12) apply, or

`(B) the amount of any salary reduction contributions to a flexible spending arrangement (within the meaning of section 125).'.

(b) Effective Date- The amendments made by this section shall apply to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2010."

Hmmm! Why would the government want our insurance benefits listed on our W-2 forms as income?

Oops! Go to www.thomas.gov and enter HR 3590 and see for yourself. This is the website of the Library of Congress.

My mother got a notice in the mail from our electric cooperative saying that if the Cap & Trade bill passed she could expect a $100 surcharge on her bill since part of her electricity comes from a coal-fired power plant.

Not one dime? That IS what he said isn't it?

Now I have a question; since all businesses, large and small, use electricity, what will the Cap & Trade tax do the cost of the items I buy every day?

Not one dime! That's what he said!

What is being poured out on mankind and by whom?

Do we live in a world of hate or ever-spreading love? Do we live in a world of abundance or want and famine? Do we live in a world of morals and ethics or worsening corruption?

I believe we can find the answer in Acts Chapter 2. We live in a world of both!

Shall we walk slowly through the first Christian day of Pentecost?

My commentary will be in bold font.

Acts 2
1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

Hmmm! Right here in the first verse we see the key to this first Christian Pentecost, "...they were all with one accord...!" How many churches do you see all on one accord today? People whine and moan about no miracles, no healings and no power of God in their congregations and we see strife and division in their midst. Is there any wonder why the power of God, the workings and gifts of the Holy Spirit and peace are not present?

2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

A sign from heaven! How many times in each of our own lives have we seriously needed and prayed for a sign from heaven? How many time would that sign have been all we needed to pick ourselves up and march boldly forward in the face of overwhelming odds? Yet, how many Christians seek that sign and turn right around and gossip about the folks in the next pew? Is that being in "one accord?"

3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

"...and it sat upon each of them!" A sign from God-power directly from the Lord God Jehovah sitting on "each of them!" Notice here it doesn't say, "...each of them, except brother Joe Bob over there in the last pew!" It's very evident to those who UNDERSTAND AND DISCERN THE LANGUAGE of what they read that when a Body of Christ is truly in ONE ACCORD the power of the Holy Spirit will be there and manifest itself with POWER AND SIGNS FROM GOD!

4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

"And they were filled with the Holy Ghost," When the power of almighty Jehovah God fills you it is a demonstrable, evident and emotional experience! You FEEL that power through the presence of the Holy Ghost(Spirit). However, be warned, just a purely emotional experience can be mistaken and that's why we are admonished to "test the spirit." How do you test the spirit? Always test the spirit with the Word of God! Does this emotional experience comfort, exhort and edify? If it doesn't then tell that spirit to "get thee behind me in Jesus' name!" Even demons have emotions. They feared Jesus when they were cast out of the demoniac of Gedera. "...and began to speak with other tongues...!" I'm not going to get into the subject of speaking in tongues here but suffice it to say that in this particular instance Gallileans, considered particularly backwards and uneducated, were speaking in numerous dialects and languages of the known world at the time. Something absolutely un-orthodox and unbelievable to the educated of Jerusalem at the time.
"...as the Spirit gave them utterance" Is there any doubt that if God wanted he could enable his children to speak utter jibberish so someone, somewhere could understand it?

5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

The way I understand the LANGUAGE of this passage these "devout men" were all Jews who were from all of the nations of the known world. "Devout" would seem to indicate educated. Now "educated" at that time, to my understanding would mean, highly educated and learned in the Torah, the Books of the Law, the major and minor prophets and the Books of Poetry. I understand that these men would have had most of the Torah memorized. This could not happen without many years of painstaking study. There would have been no way to fool these men with a simple performance!

6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

Numerous different languages and numerous different dialects of Hebrew, all spoken by a group of men considered uneducated and backwards.

7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

This questions does not just ask the questions about Gallilaeans but the fact that they were indeed Gallilaeans! They were not considered educated people.

8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

Now do we begin to understand the power of the Holy Spirit? Who was it who confounded the languages in the plain of Shinar? Did the Lord God not invent language? Is it beyond his power then to make every man understand what these uneducated, backwards Gallilaeans were saying? It must have scared them. Possibly they feared their positions. They very well could have been insulted that these unlearned, backwards men were gifted with such power THEY KNEW WAS FROM GOD! See the parallel here? Jesus came from humility and demonstrated great power and here we have the same thing!

9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

Such power! A demonstration of the power of God in these Gallilaeans!

12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

Amazement, doubt, mocking and an accusation of drunkenness. The exact same reaction to the coming, the works and the life of Jesus!

14But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

Ah oh! Here it come! More fulfillment of prophesy! This must have been the last thing these learned men wanted to hear! After all, they had seen Jesus die, they had seen the curtain in the Holy of Holies torn, they experienced the earthquake, they had seen the dead walk up out of their graves(very little of this is spoken of or preached about), they had experienced the sun growing dark in the middle of the day and they knew the Romans had guarded the tomb and had to have known his body wasn't just moved! And now here was yet another miracle! Do you again see another parallel? These learned and "devout men of Jerusalem" were descendents of those who witnessed the plagues upon Egypt and all of God's miracles in the desert and here they were doing the same things their ancestors had done! They did not believe! One would think they could look back into their own history and simply believe! Now lest we point fingers, how much is this like our own lives today? We have a recorded hoistory of the power of God and we have seen his work in the Body of Christ and even in our own lives and still we doubt, still we fall, still we blunder and still we sin!

17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

"All flesh?" Or just some flesh? Or just those who tithe and support the church? Or just the preachers? Or just the deacons? Or just those self-righteous, self-appointed movers and shakers? Personally, I think all means all! And the rest of this verse depends on what? Being in "one accord!"

18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

Dependent on what? Being in "one accord!" Is the Body of Christ today in one accord? Denomination! That little line that divided a fraction is a denominator. A divider between the two numbers? The very word "denomination" means division. This is not a spirit of accord! Is there any wonder that the Christian church/the Body of Christ today has so little power?

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

"Fire and vapor of smoke!" In the recent thunderstorm the power of almighty God was displayed in the lightning but the Victoria Advocate's headline for that story and photo was about Zeus visiting Victoria!

20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

Prophesy had been fulfilled right before their eyes and Peter was reminding them of it. That had to sting!

21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

And so it is today that "...whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!" And so it is today that Christians are doubted, mocked and scorned, just as these first Christians were!

22Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

"...as ye yourselves also know!" Look in the mirror before you point your finger at these "devout men!" Look at how many times per day you doubt! How many times per day you just don't think God can or will do whatever it is you've been praying for! These men KNEW! They SAW! They EXPERIENCED! And yet they douted, mocked and scorned!

23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

24Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

25For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

28Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

29Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

31He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

34For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

35Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Line by line out of the prophesies of Joel and David it is demonstrated to the "devout men" of Jerusalem that Jesus was their Machiach(Messiah/the Christ/Anointed One) and that they had not only rejected him but tried to kill him!

37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.

40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

"Then they that gladly received his word..." Oops! Read closely! Did it say "all?" "Then all were baptized...?" No! That's not what it says. It says, "...they that gladly received his word were baptized:" Not ALL of those "devout men" received Peter's word. This is evident in the fact that later in the chapter we read that Peter was jailed for preaching Jesus as the Christ. Look in the mirror? How do you receive the Word of God? Do you test the spirit and see if it is indeed the Word of God?

42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

44And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

Now add fear(read that respect and humility, not fearfulness) to "one accord" and we begin to not only SEE the power of almighty God but experience it in our lives!

46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

And here we go again, "continuing daily in one accord!" How many of us go to church and receive the Word of God and go back out into the world and live like the world?
"...did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart!" Here we go with the "one accord" thing again! The church of Jesus Christ is the Body of Christ! We are to have one heart, one mind, one Spirit and always looking to improve that relationship! How many of us look first to differences?

47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

"Praising God and having favour with all people...!" Do you want favor? Favor with man, favor with your employer, favor even with people who don't like you? Promote accord in both your church and your personal life and you will begin to see uncommon favor out in the world! If you wish to add members to your church daily then promote such accord that the people out in the world will see what you have and want it! How many people look the the Body of Christ today and see nothing but division, bickering, strife and self-righteousness? Who in their right mind is going to want that? Hmmm! And promoting "one accord" doesn't mean beating others over the head until they see things your way! I think it means the biggest tither, the most devout and faithful man in the churc, the head deacon, the praise and worship leader taking out the trash or washing dishes after a fellowship and leaving before anyone can praise him for it!

We need to understand that we see hate in this world today because Jesus said we'd see it! We see the hatred of the Jews because Jesus said we'd see it! God said in the last days he would pour out his Spirit upon all flesh! Is not Satan the imitator of God? Doe he not try and create the fake to deceive the weak-minded of the Body of christ and the wicked in the world? What makes us think that if God said in the last days he would pour out his Spirit upon all flesh that Satan would not do the same with every spirit and demon he commands?

Therefore, what is being poured out on mankind and by whom? It is our responsibility as Christians to discern the spirits and live in "one accord!"

The curse of Miriam!

Miriam, the sister of Moses, had a problem with his marriage to a Nubian(black) woman. She spoke out against Moses and God punished her with leprosy.

The word of almighty God warns man against racial prejudice but man insists on hating his brother for the color of his skin!

Therefore there is a curse on those who hate on the basis of race!

I hate any kind of racism!

Every man, no matter the color of his skin, is my brother man!

What if this were in your back yard?

Hmmm! I wonder what would happen if the president of Mexico had this illegal alien superhighway in his back yard? What if he could literally look out his back door and see this?

I wonder what would happen if Mr. Calderon spent a little time in the homes of Mexican/Americans who live on the border and are victimized regularly by an incredible hoarde roaming through property they pay taxes on?

In the 80s this was going on in Texas. The Valley Morning Star reported and quoted Mexican/American citizens complaining of the traffic, trash and public urination going on in their yards!

And while this "debate" is going on no one seems to be complaining about the reverse racial profiling I see every day! The same racial profiling I saw in the 80s and the same racial profiling I've seen concerning the political policies of this presidential administration! If you support immigration reform or if you disagree with the politics of Barak Obama and you have white skin, you must be a bigot! You must be prejudiced!

Personally, I hate all forms of racial prejudice! I believe it's a sin and God will punish it. I am well aware that I have relatives that come north across that border all the time.

This is not an issue of skin color or language. It's an issue of national soverignty, economic survival and the public safety of our own citizens!

And whose fault is it? Look in the mirror! Yes, look in the mirror! The American people have taught two generations of children that to work hard, to sweat, to labor with one's hands at a trade or craft building America is a bad thing! We have taught our children the idea of entitlement!

We have raised, generally speaking, two generations of children who not only don't want to work but don't know how!

And the sad fact is, foreign workers make better employees! Yes, people! Read it and weep! You are one of the main reasons we have this problem!

Worse yet, we have aborted two generations of children who would now be paying into a social security system that is broke! We have aborted better than 50 million workers!

So! If we round 'em all up and send 'em home, who's gonna do the work?

Hmmm! Now have I properly irritated both sides of this debate?

Are we to be unarmed? And by whom?

Photos by AP

As the world Islamofascist jihadists train their own children to butcher the innocent;
as the drug wars in Mexico creep across the border;
as the federal government carefully and clearly refuses to enforce the law;
as neighborhoods along the southern border suffer from an invasion;
as inner city neighborhoods fill with illegal immigrant gangs;
as our federal government continues to increase investigation of anyone who questions it's leaders;
as the government continues to pass legislation the vast majority of American citizens do not want;
Yes, as all of this is happening there seems to be a quiet effort to disarm the American public!

Were you aware that the bombers who attempted to blow up a fuel tank farm at a New York airport crossed the border from Mexico in Texas? They probably came right up U.S. Highway 59! Four miles from my home!

There are, by some reports, 51 million guns owned by Texans alone! Other than a revolution how are they going to get them?

In this Rueters article I see a real danger to the national soverignty of this nation and another nail in the coffin of this republic!

U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, "operates under the rules of consensus decision-making."

"Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly," Clinton said in a written statement.

While praising the Obama administration's decision to overturn the Bush-era policy and to proceed with negotiations to regulate conventional arms sales, some groups criticized the U.S. insistence that decisions on the treaty be unanimous.

"The shift in position by the world's biggest arms exporter is a major breakthrough in launching formal negotiations at the United Nations in order to prevent irresponsible arms transfers," Amnesty International and Oxfam International said in a joint statement.

However, they said insisting that decisions on the treaty be made by consensus "could fatally weaken a final deal."

"Governments must resist US demands to give any single state the power to veto the treaty as this could hold the process hostage during the course of negotiations. We call on all governments to reject such a veto clause," said Oxfam International's policy adviser Debbie Hillier.

The proposed legally binding treaty would tighten regulation of, and set international standards for, the import, export and transfer of conventional weapons.

Supporters say it would give worldwide coverage to close gaps in existing regional and national arms export control systems that allow weapons to pass onto the illicit market.

Nations would remain in charge of their arms export control arrangements but would be legally obliged to assess each export against criteria agreed under the treaty. Governments would have to authorize transfers in writing and in advance.

The main opponent of the treaty in the past was the U.S. Bush administration, which said national controls were better. Last year, the United States accounted for more than two-thirds of some $55.2 billion in global arms transfer deals.

Arms exporters China, Russia and Israel abstained last year in a U.N. vote on the issue.

The proposed treaty is opposed by conservative U.S. think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, which said last month that it would not restrict the access of "dictators and terrorists" to arms but would be used to reduce the ability of democracies such as Israel to defend their people.

The U.S. lobbying group the National Rifle Association has also opposed the treaty.

A resolution before the U.N. General Assembly is sponsored by seven nations including major arms exporter Britain. It calls for preparatory meetings in 2010 and 2011 for a conference to negotiate a treaty in 2012.

Yes, I can see why I was booted from the local soft soap sheet! Hard news is hard to come by on those pages! Hmmm! And anyone who can adequately defend himself against the progressive liberals is seen as a dangerous individual and must be shut up!

Chuckle! Kind of like government investigators did to "Joe the Plumber!"

Well, at least I'm in good company!

For the first time in modern history...

A sitting presidential administration has threatened to openly and overtly NOT ENFORCE THE LAW OF THE LAND!

I am beginning to wonder if those who voted for "change" knew what they were getting into!

We have seen the Black Panthers intimidate voters! Heck, we've got it on camera and DOJ has refused to prosecute!

However, we have seen Arizona finally, in a last ditch effort to protect itself, pass an immigration law and not only is the Obama administration asking DOJ to look into possible civil rights violation by this state law, we now hear that the immigration service may refuse to process illegals detained!

Not only is all of this unconstitutional, if is bizarre and defies common sense!

Are we a country of laws or a country so politically correct that we will not enforce the law no matter how much money it costs and how many American citizens die?

And THEN we allow the visiting president of Mexico to stand before our congress and lecture US on discrimination while HIS country discriminates against immigrants as a matter of law!

And the democrats in congress actually stand up and cheer!

This is bizarre! This is sick!

What about all of those Mexican/American citizens of THIS country who have seen their neighborhoods over-run with crime and gangs from just about everywhere south of the border?

These people have been crying out for years and no one has heard their cry!

The only cry we hear are those of LULAC, MALDEF, ACLU, the democrat party and the republicans party!

Yes the republican party! They've had numerous opportunities to fix this problem and haven't because they want plenty of cheap labor for their corporate buddies! And we all know the democrats only want more people on public assistance and more voters!

And who suffers?

Yeah, we got "change!"

How many more have to die?

Why isn't this con artist in jail?

According to a piece by Gene Koprowski there is a growing consensus amongst the scientific community that the earth is actually cooling and is expected to get even cooler.

"The hottest new trend in climate change may be global cooling, some researchers say.
Contrary to the commonly held scientific conclusion that the Earth is getting warmer, Dr. Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University and author of more than 150 peer-reviewed papers, has unveiled evidence for his prediction that global cooling is coming soon.

'Rather than global warming at a rate of 1 F per decade, records of past natural cycles indicate there may be global cooling for the first few decades of the 21st century to about 2030,' said Easterbrook, speaking on a scientific panel discussion with other climatologists. This, he says, will likely be followed by 'global warming from about 2030 to 2060,' which will then be followed by another cooling spell from 2060 to 2090.

Easterbrook spoke before a group of about 700 scientists and government officials at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change. The conference is presented annually in Chicago by the Heartland Institute, a conservative nonprofit think tank that actively questions the theory of man's role in global warming. Last year the Institute published Climate Change Reconsidered, a comprehensive reply to the United Nations' latest report on climate change."

This begs some questions; if in fact(and it is a very well documented fact according to recent reports on NPR) the earth has not warmed in the past decade as is claimed, then just how much cooler will it get?
Is it true that the carbon dioxide emitted from the volcano in Iceland has more than surpassed any reductions in emissions humans have made? (Psssst! Yes, this is true!)
Is it also true that the ash and various green house gasses emited from that volcano will contribute significantly to global cooling for the next two to three years? Yes, according to the National Weather Service and NOAA.
Is THAT cooling figured into Easterbrook's predictions? I understand it isn't!
Hmmm! 'Nuther couple of questions; Should I cut another couple of cords of firewood for this winter? Wonder if Al Gore's foundation will award grants for heating low income American homes this winter? Chuckle!

It seems it's only the highly educated and those making money from global warming that still believe in and promote this scam!
