Thanks for bringing this up. Not only did President Bush champion immigration legislation but so did President Reagan. Reagan's plan also included border security which never happened because Congress did not provide the funding. These two events alone indicate that we must strictly control our borders and immigration policy along our Northern and Southern borders, our and or Ports of Entry. I have a friend in California who tried to alert City, State and Federal authorities of the fraudulent papers given to him by applicants for work. These officials understood the applicants were illegal, but told Fred to hire them anyway. The reason immigration is not working, the problem is government is not enforcing the law.
Sorry, I only saw the article in passing. It briefly caught my attention because I wondered what would be next after gay marrige gained traction. I didn't save or file the story because It not an issue which I am involved in. I don't have a dog in the fight in other words.
I agree with you about NAMBLA as a pedophile organization. Understand however, that while many of those members hide their activity, many are very influential and hold very high public office. They will have influence in this debate.
As an (old school) researcher I never try to misrepresent or twist facts. Facts are what they are. I guess time will tell as the debate continues. Thanks for your post, I enjoyed the conversation.posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 21:05
It isnot only the GOP who is outraged at the illegal activity of the IRS but it's the Democrats as well because they know another administration could target their special interests. Even Charlie Rangel (D, NY) who has had his own tax scandles was most upset at the IRS targeting the Presidents political opponents. Thank goodness a GOP lead committee opened the investigation, but every freedom loving Americsn, Democrat, Republican, Indepemdent, must demand corrective action be taken and reins placed on the IRS.posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 10:33
If you look at all the outrageous scandles coming out of Washington, the IRS crimes, the Jusrice Department wiretaps, the H&HS Directors shakedown of private business to fund her projects in violation of an Act of Congress and the EPA selective Emforcement, what's to prevent this? If I thought of of it, I would bet a steak dinner that several people in this Administration have thought about it.
There were a some recent articles (possibly in some SF publication) following states legalizing gay marriage arguing that child sex between consenting people should be the next thing to be considered. Sex or simulated sex between adults and children is practiced in some South Sea cultures and in Africa. We have NAMBLA in the USA and members believe that sex betweens men and young boys is normal. It was standard practice many years ago to have young boys serve British Navy sailing ships for the use of officers.
Remember, at one time homosexuality, Lesbian (gay marriage) was considered perverted and was illegal. Most states had laws against this activity. I even knew a guy who was fired from his job as a state trooper because he was living with a gal and they were not married.
Don't jump on your horse, call me names, accuse me of twisting anything and shout that I am for this or against that. All I'm stating is that the dialog has begun in some circles.posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 10:15
With what we have seen with the IRS, targeting political enemies could it be that the Feds. could target other political foes and load porn onto a computer then arrest the computer owner? What's to stop them? Evidence is often planted on suspects, a bag of drugs, etc. Why couldn't porn be placed on the computer of an innocent person? With the testimony I watched yesterday and the attitude, the word games and the hostility displayed by the IRS Director, I now believe this government could do anything.posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 09:19
Another political hack who was sponsor of a failed political stunt which was the Presidents Sequester. Why am I not surprised.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 12:16
Yeah...what your point?
We must look at the pattern and practice and the culture of intimidation by this administration. There was a conservative group who was having trouble gettin tax exempt status so they changed their name to Green House something-or-other and got rapid approval. Another poster told the story of the Presidents relative. How did tax information of political candidates get into the hand of opponents? A pattern and practice is telling. We should all be concerned because if avuse can happen to them, it can happen to you.
The people who can take away everything you have interfered with a citizens right to representation and redressing grievances. Weather a conservative or a liberal, we all should be deeply concerned and not allow this to go unaddressed. Remember, if you allow this to affect the TEA party people someday they will come after you. Nobody will be able to stop it
Oh??? The President appoints the Sec. of the Treasury? If you appoint like minded people to critical positions you will get like minded operations. The President has a a political agenda. How did Sen. Harry Reid know all about Romneys tax livelily? We also mist look at a Pattern and Practice of abuse. We must look at the questions asked of these applicants. Over 500 orginazation or groups were targeted. According to reports the questions bordered with mindset and philosophy. This scandles might make the Nixon scandles look like Childs play. Nixon had no control over the IRS either. Obama seems to have no control over everything.
Demand a blood test if arrested for DUI. These machines may be pron to inaccurate readings. These machines perform a medical procedure but they assume a body average when measuring the BAC. If you were going to have a medical procedure would you want you doctor to assume you are average, or would you want him/her to run test to be spot on? A defendant cannot examine the software used in these machines. A defendant can cross examine the operator neither the officer nor the operator can testify about the operational software. The machine cannot be cross examined. The software is proprietary. These machines are sold on low bid and to make them affordable, corners must be cut. The Chief and the department could save a lot of money if he rejected these machines and relied on accurate blood tests drawn by medical professionals.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 09:17
Some conservative groups have asked the IRS to review the tax status of a highly political group called Media Matters. Their purpose is very political yet they receive a tax break as a 501 C 3. The IRS ignored these requests. Clearly, in this case the IRS is being used as a political operation. Remember also, thousands of IRS officers will become imvolved in health care. I believe the three legs of the political stool, Republicians, Democrats and the Media are all outraged at this scandal. There is another one brewing which is being called a shake down by the H&HS secretary. Stay tuned.
Out of the ground right now Nafural gas relatively inexpensive, but government has yet to impose draconian taxes as a motor fuel. We also have the politically active radicals who are attempting to shut down natural gas production. There are few filling stations and it's almost impossible to take the family on a trip. If you want to fill at home, the piping and a natural gas pump will be expensive to install. I checked many years ago and at that time the cost would have been over $3500. Farmers in the 1950's and 60's operated their trucks and tractors on Propane so this is not new technology, it's just being revisited.
Holder is again using the Sergeant Schultz defense. He used it when Operation Fast and Furious came to light and he's using is now employing it with this new scandal. The defense is, " I know NOTHING...nothing." Why doesn't he know something? Do we have another inept AG?posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:43
Remember Richard Nixon? This has happened before and look what happened to him.
No, the Tax Enough Already people wanted an end to draconian regulations and high taxes. That is the mind set of this like minded group. Remember, there is no organised TEA Party, it is more of a universal thought. Targeting a legal organisation, demanding donor and membership lists is third world. Targeting individuals who have petitioned the government for a redress is illegal. Big difference. This should be a concern to everyone, liberal or conservative. Remember Nixon had his enemys list, might we have a new government enemy list?
Family history and genetics can predispose a woman to breast cancer which was obvious in this case. But many woman do not have this history and still may contract breast cancer. Researchers have found a very simple way woman can greatly reduce the likelihood of breast cancer.
Singer and Grismaijer published in their book, Dresses to Kill, who claim 70% of breast cancer cases are unexplainable by the then-current [as of 1995] known risk factors for breast cancer. The surveyed over 1000 women and their study findings were:
3 out of 4 women who wore their bras 24 hours per day developed breast cancer.
1 out of 7 women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day but not to bed developed breast cancer.
1 out of 152 women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day got breast cancer.
1 out of 168 women who wore bras rarely or never acquired breast cancer.
A new 15 year study of women just published from France by Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, a sports science expert at the University of Besançon in Eastern France found that the bra is a false necessity. This new study shows that bras damage a woman's body.
Leave the bras in the drawer and live a more healthy life.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:26
Here we go again, another federal mandate. In my law enforcement career I have seen the BAC standards lowered from 0.12 down to the present 0.08 and now they want to reduce it even lower to 0.05. Do you know that depending on the food you eat, the human body can manufacture a BAC level at almost 0.02? They make these wild statements that this lowering will save a specific number of lives but they can provide no scholarly data to prove their point. Look at the arrest data over the years for DUI. Arrests have remained relatively constant with the exception of a few dips largely due to economic conditions. Rather than lower the levels we must look at new ways to identify the chronic repeat drunk driver rather than go after you and I. When we look at all the fines, costs,and fees associated with DUI enforcement, this appears to be another revenue grab rather than a safety program. Let is see through this and nip the scheme in the bud.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:21
What was the original reason for the stop? Why did the Banks Deputy want to stop the car in the first place? Was the attempt to stop legal? Most traffic stops are for minor regulatory infractions. Was it worth creating all this destruction and loss of life? What is the pursuit policy of the Banks Sheriffs Dept and the GSP? Do commanders have the ability to stop a pursuit of it becomes too dangerous? The report stated the road was very congested so I guess that means it was heavily traveled. In this case, did the desirability of stopping these people outweigh placing everyone on that road in danger? Every police pursuit places the officer and everyone else in danger. We have no control over the clown who refuses to stop, but we do have control over law enforcement trying to stop people for minor infractions.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:10
Again, these people are resorting to ancient methods which have been replaced by cheaper, more efficient, effective and reliable sources. We burned wood for fuel and transport in the past. Many forests were denuded. We used grass for transport, we fed it to our horses, remember the by product of this process? I understand the process is different in this case but let's see if it takes more energy to produce this energy. There are new advances to search for a new energy source coming from the work at CERN. A new fusion process is being developed and the research into Dark Energy is stunning. Let's more forward rather than try to return to the future.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 08:54
I know, which is why I mentioned all the investigation and articles since then. I felt I was dealing with a low information person and at the time I really didn't have the time to go into all the details. Thanks for providing same. About the WMD, Hillary (who also favored the war) addressed a meeting of Code Pink and told them she contacted her own Intelligence experts and they too agreed there were WMD's. Even Ted and Al agreed. What we don't hear is a tyrant (don't forget about his two sons) was removed from the world and a people were given their freedom.
Good point, I too thought his numbers were a little high but I didn't want to waste my time looking it up. Perhaps we should also go back and look at Korea. The problems we are having today can be directly tied to the decisions Truman made during that "police action".
Yes indeed, of course. And there have been official and unofficially Investigations, there have been countless news reports and investigative articles. Yes indeed, I'm glad you see tha value of getting to the bottom of contentious events. Thanks for the post.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 09:58
