What's the fuss over Arizona?Missouri has had a similar law since 2008

Evidently when it comes to laws to limit illegal immigrants-particularly those from Mexico- the Show me state really showed the way. Recently all the headlines have been about the controversial anti-immigrant law in Arizona.

Liberal politicians have been foaming at the mouth over it, the President has practically declared war on Arizona over it, and the liberal elitists in Holly Wood have boycotted it,but really ,what's all the fuss about?

Missouri passed a similar bill in 2008, aimed at cutting down on the number of illegals-read Mexicans-in Missouri and no one even noticed. Here's a quote from Missouri's bill...
"Law enforcement officers must inquire into the immigration status of any individual detained in a jail facility for a violation of state law. If the individual is found to be illegal, the officer shall cooperate with any request from federal authorities regarding detention and custody transfer"(click read the bill).
Here's my take on it. the Missouri bill was short, concise, and to the point,it wasn't a contentious issue before it was passed, and it the support of not only the people, but, both parties, and to cap it all off it became law without very much fanfare.

The same-unfortunately- cannot be said for the Arizona bill . In Arizona there seems to have been a rush to get any law passed-and understandably so-since the Federal government apparently didn't have any intention of providing security for the state.
Then during the debate several portions became quite controversial-causing it to become a lightning rod- thereby insuring that the MSM and the liberal elites would get involved and muck everything up with political correctness.

Well as the old saying goes the rest is history Arizona has now become a political circus, while, Missouri's law still goes largely unnoticed.
So to sum it all up "whats all the fuss about?" Arizona didn't take enough care in drafting their law, and most importantly the crazed Liberal Democrats got involved, along with their lackey's in the Liberal press, and have done nothing but turn something that should have been a local and state matter into total mayhem!

I Am America! By Krista Branch

I Am America by Krista Branch! This is a great video and bound for my music of Freedom page. Enjoy!

"We The People"

The Constitution of The United States of America. In my view one of the greatest documents in the history of mankind. Surpassed only by the Bible.

In fact in my opinion this document is close to holy writ, and is without a doubt inspired by God.

The Constitution has brough tunprecedented freedom, prosperity, security,and stability to,not only the United States,but the entire world.

Because of the words- penned over 200 years ago-in this text people have been guaranteed freedoms that preceding generations only dreamed of.

We can pick our own leaders, hold them accountable, and demand they do OUR will. Not the other way around.
As a result of this Nation being formed, and this precious document being created freedom has not only blossemed in America, but has also began to spread around the world.

This country-guided by the principles set forth in the Constitution- has set entire peoples free from the strangle hold of tyrants and dictators time and time again.

The world has beaten a path to our door seeking the freedom,peace,prosperityand security that is afforded by The Constitution.

Alas today our Constitution is under attack like never before. It's time that We The People demand that our elected leaders return to the Constitution.If they refuse they must be turned out of office period.
Just some thoughts from the Freedomlover

John Kerry loves taxes for you and I but not for himself!

Well, well, well, seems John Kerry -one of the most tax loving liberals of all time- apparently has attempted to dodge a $500.000 tax bill.

Yeah that's right Kerry it seems he has attempted to avoid paying excise taxes to the state of Massachusetts by keeping his new multimillion dollar yacht moored in Rhode Island.

Once again a -"fat cat" multi-billion dollar- liberal is caught red handed trying to dodge taxes,that he and his ilk, love to impose on everyone else. In this video, from Fox News Boston, Kerry appears to be a little nervous,and definitely not "transparent, as he is confronted by a Fox news reporter and a vidiographer.

Note that Kerry say's ,"We'll pay our taxes, we've always paid our taxes,it's not an issue period, we've always paid our taxes". Sounds like he's trying to convince himself ,as much as ,he's trying to convince the reporter. Then after being pressed he later tries to dodge the question of taxes by saying "it depends on who owns the yacht".

Well turns out it's owned by his wife's company. He spends some time ducking and weaving by saying something about maintenance, and , warranty work. Well for goodness sake the thing isa brand new multi million dollar yacht why in the world does it need warranty work already? Sure as heck sounds like a dodge to me

Yes it seems this unbelievably rich "man of the people" doesn't like taxes. Libs love to laden you and I down with scores of laws, taxes, and regulation's, but when it comes to themselves their much ballyhooed "transparency" starts looking more like a Klingon cloaking device!

Joint U.S. South Korean exercise draws ire of Kim Ill Jung!

What a sappy looking jokerthe "Glorious Leader" of North Korea,Kim Ill, has gotten him self into a  tizzy over joint U.S. South Korean military operations near the east coast of Korea. In fact this nut is threatening to retaliate with nuclear weapons in what Pyong Yang calls a "Sacred War".

Kim ill with nukes is like a child with matches given enough time the entire house is likely to be set on fire. This guy should be thankful -as well as hope- that the F-22 Raptors being used in this operation aren't dropping shock and awe bombs on his crazy little head!

The Associated press is reporting...
"The drills, set to run through Wednesday, involve about 8,000 U.S. and South Korean troops, 20 ships and submarines and 200 aircraft. The USS George Washington, with several thousand sailors and dozens of fighter jets aboard, was deployed from Japan."
that's a pretty massive show of force. I dare say there's enough firepower to pretty well take o'l Kim out! I'm heartened to see us flex our muscles in this way as an answer to Kim's outrageous sinking of a South Korean naval vessel,but, we should actually be taking out a North Korean vessel,or, military installation in retaliation.

When it comes down to brass tacks the only thing his kind understands is unequivocal brute force. Kim has no respect for our current leader whom-I'm sure- he considers weak. Well if he keeps it up even Barack Obama may be forced to use force to put him in his place.

Kim ill don't threaten us with nuclear war,just be glad, your not dead already!

Truth or Dare

Last night, rumors circulated all around the Internet that two ranches in Laredo, Texas had been overrun by a Mexican cartel. It appears that many elements of the story may actually have been rumor, and many believe the entire incident was nothing more than a hoax. Although it's apparent that there was violence in the area yesterday, the specific nature and details of that violence remain unconfirmed.

The entire event bothers me for a couple of reasons. First, it is entirely believable that such an incident could in fact occur and that the media wouldn't report it, directed not to do so by the local authorities or the federal government. There are legitimate reasons for giving such news only brief attention - fear of revealing critical tactical information, for example. A media blackout, on the other hand, would be entirely unacceptable; this is in fact what the rumors of the alleged event stated had happened. And obviously, there are many people who believed this could have been the case. The last presidential election and the events which have taken place since have completely destroyed much of the credibility the press once possessed. Simply put, the public by and large does not trust the media to report the facts.

The other thing that bothers me about this is the alacrity with which so many accepted the incident as a hoax. If the events of the past three years have taught us anything, it should be that we don't stand a chance of achieving our goal by attacking each other. United we stand, divided we fall. While most people were simply concerned at the serious nature of the story, there are a few who rather viciously attacked their “friends” for being so gullible as to fall for a trick likely perpetrated by the left. By taking such a position, these people give the impression that we should all just shut up and sit down for fear of being ridiculed. That mindset is a great deal of the reason we are in the situation we face today.

There are very few journalists in our country today who are regarded as trustworthy. In a political atmosphere rife with the tension of corruption, citizens are forced to acknowledge that if we want the facts, we're going to have to ferret them out ourselves. Additionally, we're going to have to set aside our innately human fear of being ridiculed. Does this mean we should report something as news without having verified the surrounding facts? Of course not - but we're going to have to be willing to work hard and research quickly. And perhaps most importantly, we must fix firmly in our minds the reason we're doing this. Not for recognition or profit, we are doing this to save our country.

Ronald Reagan said, "There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." This same sentiment applies to ridicule; you can accomplish anything when you don't mind being laughed at if you fail. If we are to be successful in restoring this Republic, we need to lay aside dreams of glory and fears of ridicule. I can only speak for myself, but I'm in.

Hypocritical N.A.A.C.P seeks to capitolize on Sherrod mistake

In what can only be called a brazen move the NAACP is seeking to capitalize on it's shameful railroading of Shirley Sherrod! That's right the organization that showed how quick they are to eat their own is now attempting to gain support for their anti-tea party vendetta by asking people who visit their full length video of Shirley Sherrod to take their "Pledge against hate"

After signing their pledge they want people to share their propaganda on their Facebook page. The Audacity of this move astonishes me. Within just a day of crucifying-arguably- one of their most ardent supporters the man who stuck the proverbial knife in her back Benjamin Jealous and the NAACP is trying to whip up anti-tea party hysteria. Once again the lefts old tactic of demonize, and ,vilify any one or any thing that dare disagree with them can be seen in full swing.

As it stands now I believe their unreasoning hatred of the Tea Parties is going to cost them dearly in their desperate attempt to tar and feather the Tea Party people as "racists" they are wagging the finger of shame not only at whites,but, also blacks and Hispanics. Several speakers at tea party, and tea party like events -such as Fair Tax rallies- are black and even crack jokes about how according to the NAACP they should be afraid of being lynched.

No in their "rush to judgement" of Ms. Sherrod-as well as- the Tea Party movement that have showed hypocrisy in not following their own advice not to be prejudice from the blogger's point of view they have out lived their usefulness.

Shirley Sherrod was given a raw deal by the Obama administration

I have to admit I came a little late to this story. I had heard something about it yesterday,but, I was busy with other things and didn't check it out. I'm always a little Leary of jumping on "She's a racist/he's a racist" bandwagons anyway. That said I was watching the Today show this morning when they headlined this story. It rapidly became apparent that something had gone terribly wrong with this particular case of "she's a racist"

Matt Lauer gave out information about being able to see the full video of what Shirley Sherrod had said over at the NAACP website, so, I hustled to my computer and brought it up, what I saw and heard appalled me, clearly this woman had been railroaded by someone!!

Matt quickly started blaming Fox News, and, Brietbart for peddling"garbage" but,I thought. who did the firing? IT was the Secretary of agricultur, whith I might add, the tacit approval of Barack Obama himself!

Why were these two so quick to condemn this woman without making a thorough check of the facts? If this wasn't bad enough the NAACP had turned viciously on one of there own .and, had hastened to throw her under the bus. They had to in order -in the judgement I feel they made at the time- to save face after they had just been giving the Tea Party hell for alleged racism in their ranks, as well as, views.

I hardly agree with Shirley Sherrod on many of her political points- she is an advocate of class warfare in my opinion, and most definitely a left leaning socialistic democrat, but I have watched the full video(posted above) and applaud her for recognizing her own racism and repenting and turning from it. No this woman was given a very very raw deal by the Obama Administration.

She deserves a personal apology from The President, Secretary of Ag, and the head of the NAACP.

BP finally gets it right! Oil Cap Holding in the Gulf!!

This is a very, very welcome sight! It appears as though British Petroleum's cap of the Gulf gusher is going to hold.

Now the next step is-according to reports-to kill the well. This is to be done by boring into the pipe that is channeling the oil up to the cap. This worries me though-it seems to me- that they will have to relieve some of the pressure when this is done. or , risk another blowout!

At this point I don't envy BP one bit -if after having sealed this monster-they have another blowout during the bottom kill process- what then?

I sometimes may be quick to criticise,but, I'm also quite willing to give praise for a job well done. True after the first cap was taken off there was quite a large release of oil into the Gulf,but, and this is a big one,by God this time they got her shut down- and for this they deserve praise-I say well done to all the people involved in getting this cap in place!! You folks-the ones who have bled, sweated, and done the tough work, from engineers to laborers deserve a big job done well round of applause.

Now all that remains is to seal the deal, get this thing killed, and get this badly needed oil into proper production. Meantime we need to do everything in our power to make sure this doesn't happen again. As I said in an earlier post we need to look at everything from  BOP's to surface collection of spilled oil and make sure if this does happen we are better prepared to deal with it. America needs the energy from the Gulf.

Obama's Information Czar Cass Sunstein a threat to liberty!

In this video Glenn Beck unloads on Cass Sunstein,Obama's "Propaganda Minister", and his theories about cotrolling thought, and speech by making"anti government opinion, ideas, and movements,illegal! It seems to me that this Sunstein fellow is a real whack job. What really is amazing though is-as Beck points out-Sunstein's own ideas amount to a conspiracy theory of their own! Maybe its time to hoist old Cass on his own petard!!

Then there's this post over at BrietBart T.V.

Looks like Obama's "information "Czar" is a guy who thinks government censorship is a Good thing! I guess he hasn't read the first amendment lately,especially the part about congress not abridging the freedom of speech. Seems to me that liberals think that freedom of speech only applies to them, and ,liberal -so called-professional journalists.

Sunstein advocates that websites "voluntarily" provide links to websites that hold views opposite to what they are expounding! However-and this is a big however-if websites- and I assume sooner or later bloggers and every body else who posts on the web- would be required to post opposing views- if they don't want to do it voluntarily.

Sunstein calls it "mandates" and proposes that Congress hold hearings requiring what I've just talked about. This is exactly opposite to what the founding fathers believed. They believed that anyone should be able to put forward any political argument they wanted without fear of retribution from the government,and these fools wonder why there is a Tea Party movement.

While doing research on Mr. Sunstein I came across some interesting links. One is from facebook here you can find comments such as...

"Cass Sunstein prepared a 2008 paper that proposed spying on Americans, infiltrating groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that might question government". See:

or consider this post from the same page...

In a review of Sunstein’s, he said that Sunstein had difficulty suppressing “the impulse to exercise centralised control” and that he distrusted consumer sovereignty. Nagel noted with disfavor Sunstein’s proposal to compel Internet sites to link to political sites that opposed their own...

Seems this guy just doesn't trust the people-or in my opinion - democracy -as well as-freedom! Consider Mr. Sunstein in his own words...

"I have argued in favor of a reformulation of First Amendment law. The overriding goal of the reformulation is to reinvigorate processes of democratic deliberation, by ensuring greater attention to public issues and greater diversity of views. The First Amendment should not stand as an obstacle to democratic efforts to accomplish these goals. A New Deal for speech would draw on Justice Brandeis’ insistence on the role of free speech in promoting political deliberation and citizenship. It would reject Justice Holmes’ “marketplace” conception of free speech, a conception that disserves the aspirations of
those who wrote America’s founding document.
--Cass R. Sunstein, Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech, The Free Press,"(Click here for more SunStein quotes)

Reinvigorate the forces of democratic deliberation?!!! What he means is to give the government more power to take away freedom and replace it with oppression!!! The founders would take up ARMS against this lunatic!! Wake up America Obama and his so called Czars are a bunch of "Communist liberators" and communistic liberation equals slavery!!!!

Time for Obama and his crowd to be thrown out of office_that is if Sunstein's "forces of democratic deliberation" doesn't cancel the next election.

Mr. Obama :Secure our borders now!

"In recent days, the issue of immigration has become once more a source of fresh contention in our country, with the passage of a controversial law in Arizona and the heated reactions we’ve seen across America."(Click here for text of speech)

Mr. President I have news for you. For many Americans this has been -and never stopped being- a contentious issue since before George Bush was president. Especially for the people of the border states who have had to live with threats to their lives and property for decades now. These folks have,in recent days, seen a severe escalation in violence on the Mexican and American sides of the border.

I'm writing this on July 2,2010 and the morning news told the story of a military style firefight in Mexico only 12 miles from our border in which 25 people were killed. Mr. President there is a civil war going on in Mexico and it is spilling into this country and threatening the security of not only the border states but also our entire nation. Add to this the fact that illegal immigration along the Mexican American border has practically became a hostile invasion. Indeed Mexican Army units have been caught on our side of the border and have even shot at our border patrol. This in my opinion is unconscionable!

Mr. President you have sworn an oath to protect and defend this country and it's people,and yet, your speech yesterday showed weakness, defeatism and a catastrophic lack of leadership. You have said that "the system is broken". No it is not! All that needs be done is to enforce the law. That is exactly what states like Arizona and Missouri have been trying to do enforce Federal law as it regards immigration!

You have said this is a nation of laws,and, so it is. So why is enforcing current Federal law so controversial? It's not controversial when local police routinely arrest other kinds of criminals who have broken both state and Federal laws. Why should it be so in this case? I'll tell you why, because you are driven by left wing political correctness and not by the Constitution. I could go on and on but for now I make one simple request. Mr. President do your job and secure our border now!!!
