Congressman wants “parole in place” (amnesty) for millions of illegal aliens

Congressman wants "parole in place" (amnesty) for millions of illegal aliens
examiner.com ^ | April 3, 2011 | Dave Gibson

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 10:22:29 PM by Free ThinkerNY

On Saturday, at an event in providence, Rhode Island, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) gave a speech to a crowd of hundreds of legal immigrants and illegal aliens in which he criticized the federal government over deportations.

The event was one in a series which Gutierrez has planned across the country to gather stories on how deportation are affecting illegal aliens, in an attempt to convince President Obama to limit removals to only those illegal aliens convicted of serious crimes.

The U.S. Congressman spoke to the group gathered at Oliver Hazard Perry Middle School almost entirely in Spanish.

With the DREAM Act defeated…Yet again, Gutierrez proposed amnesty by another name, this time something he calls a "parole-in-place" program which would allow illegal aliens who had their children in the U.S. to stay here with them.

Under the Congressman's proposal, illegal alien spouses of citizens would also qualify for the program.

Well this is interesting. Glenn Beck thinks Hillary sees the writing on the wall and will run for President in 2012.

Obama might be a socialist

Obama might be a socialist
Washington Times ^ | 4/4/11 | Wayne Allyn Root

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 9:56:19 PM by Nachum

I ought to know. I was Mr. Obama's college classmate at Columbia University Class of '83. Our college was dominated by socialists and Marxists who hated capitalism and America. Let's look at the facts up close and personal - Jeff Foxworthy style. Mr. Foxworthy leaves no doubt as to "who might be a redneck." Let me leave no doubt that "Obama might be a socialist." If you believe it's greedy for American taxpayers to want to keep more of their own money, but not greedy to demand that government confiscate other people's money and redistribute it to those

Obama's War of Choice - Did the president mislead the American people about Libya?

Obama's War of Choice - Did the president mislead the American people about Libya?
Reason ^ | April 4, 2011 | Steve Chapman

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 9:11:19 PM by neverdem

Remember when a crusading president, acting on dubious intelligence, insufficient information, and exaggerated fears, took the nation into a Middle Eastern war of choice? That was George W. Bush in 2003, invading Iraq. But it's also Barack Obama in 2011, attacking Libya.

For weeks, President Obama had been wary of military action. What obviously changed his mind was the fear that Moammar Gadhafi was bent on mass slaughter—which stemmed from Gadhafi's March 17 speech vowing "no mercy" for his enemies.

In his March 26 radio address, Obama said the United States acted because Gadhafi threatened "a bloodbath." Two days later, he asserted, "We knew that if we waited one more day, Benghazi—a city nearly the size of Charlotte—could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world."

Really? Obama implied that, absent our intervention, Gadhafi might have killed nearly 700,000 people, putting it in a class with the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. White House adviser Dennis Ross was only slightly less alarmist when he reportedly cited "the real or imminent possibility that up to a 100,000 people could be massacred."

But these are outlandish scenarios that go beyond any reasonable interpretation of Gadhafi's words. He said, "We will have no mercy on them"—but by "them," he plainly was referring to armed rebels ("traitors") who stand and fight, not all the city's inhabitants.

"We have left the way open to them," he said. "Escape. Let those who escape go forever." He pledged that "whoever hands over his weapons, stays at home without any weapons, whatever he did previously, he will be pardoned, protected."

Alan Kuperman, an associate professor at the University of Texas' Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, is among those unconvinced by Obama's case. "Gadhafi," he told me, "did not massacre civilians in any of the other big cities he captured—Zawiyah, Misratah, Ajdabiya—which together have a population equal to Benghazi. Yes, civilians were killed in a typical, ham-handed Third World counter-insurgency. But civilians were not targeted for massacre as in Rwanda, Darfur, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bosnia or even Kosovo after NATO intervention."

The rebels, however, knew that inflating their peril was their best hope for getting outside help. So, Kuperman says, they concocted the specter of genocide—and Obama believed it, or at least used it to justify intervention.

Another skeptic is Paul Miller, an assistant professor at National Defense University who served on the National Security Council under Bush and Obama. "The Rwandan genocide was targeted against an entire, clearly defined ethnic group," he wrote on the Foreign Policy website. "The Libyan civil war is between a tyrant and his cronies on one side, and a collection of tribes, movements, and ideologists (including Islamists) on the other. ... The first is murder, the second is war."

When I contacted Miller, he discounted the talk of vast slaughter. "Benghazi is the second-largest city in the country, and he needs the city and its people to continue functioning and producing goods for his impoverished country," he said.

Maybe these analysts are mistaken, but the administration has offered little in the way of rebuttal. Where Bush sent Colin Powell to the United Nations to make the case against Saddam Hussein, Obama has treated the evidence about Gadhafi as too obvious to dispute.

I e-mailed the White House press office several times asking for concrete evidence of the danger, based on any information the administration may have. But a spokesman declined comment.

That's a surprising omission, given that a looming holocaust was the centerpiece of the president's case for war. Absent specific, reliable evidence, we have to wonder if the president succumbed to unwarranted panic over fictitious dangers.

Bush had a host of reasons (or pretexts) for invading Iraq. But Obama has only one good excuse for the attack on Libya—averting mass murder. That gives the administration a special obligation to document the basis for its fears.

Maybe it can. Plenty of experts think Obama's worries were justified. But so far, the White House message has been: Trust us.

Sorry, but we've tried that before. In 2002, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice waved off doubts about Saddam Hussein's nuclear ambitions, saying, "We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud." Right now, the Benghazi bloodbath looks like Obama's mushroom cloud.

Herman Cain: ‘It’s okay to call me black … Obama is not the president of black people’ [VIDEO

Herman Cain: 'It's okay to call me black … Obama is not the president of black people' [VIDEO
Daily Caller ^ | 4 Apr 2011 | Laura Donovan

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 9:20:10 PM by mandaladon

Potential Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain doesn't want whites to beat around the bush when addressing his race, according to a video interview he did with Accuracy in Media reporter Benjamin Johnson.

"African-American Republican presidential nominees … never did they get such media fanfare," Johnson said to Cain. "Can you comment on this? Is this telling about the media or is this telling about the party system?"

"I think it's more about the individual," Cain said. "By the way, it's okay to call me black, see, I am, I am an American Black Conservative, an ABC, it's okay, it's okay, I'm not hyphenated!"

After a moment of laughter, Cain said, "This is what America is all about! Why can't we just get along?"

"Since he [President Barack Obama] has not served the people of this country very well, he has not served the African-American community very well, and secondly he wasn't supposed to be the president of black people, he was supposed to be the president of the entire country, so I don't look so much at how he has served the black community of this country, I am evaluating the lack of effectiveness of his policies across the board," Cain said. "It's not about what color he is, it's about the lack of leadership."

Terry Jones Is Not the Problem

Terry Jones Is Not the Problem
Townhall.com ^ | April 4, 2011 | Rich Galen

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 6:30:36 PM by Kaslin

That preacher in Florida who burned a Koran is a ______ (Fill in the Blank). On that, I think we can all agree.

The notion that a guy with a 30-person congregation can hold himself up as - literally - a judge, and some of his massive congregation as jury, to decide on the legitimacy of Islam as a religion would be laughable, except we don't laugh about those things any more.

Both U.S. President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the actions of Terry Jones but Karzai's comments were used as a match by Imams in Mosques across Afghanistan at Friday prayers to light the fires of an insane overreaction.

Yesterday Karzai issued a statement "calling on the US Congress to condemn a Christian preacher's burning of the Koran."

Ok. Fair's fair. I would consider the U.S. Congress voting on such a resolution just as soon as Karzai issues a statement condemning the murder of innocent people in Mazar-e-Sharif and across his country.

In the attack at Mazar-e-Sharif, which is in northern Afghanistan, a mob of about 1,000 people stormed the United Nations compound, killed at least four guards and three U.N. staffers - none of whom were Americans.

Since Friday some 20 people have been killed across Afghanistan in demonstrations against Jones having burned a copy of the Koran in Florida.

“DEPRIVED OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT”

"DEPRIVED OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT"

30 March 2011

Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin had questioned Obama's eligibility to issue orders, was court-martialed in December 2010 and sentenced to six months at Ft. Leavenworth as well as discharge from the Army and forfeiture of pay and benefits. He has a wife and three young children.

204 Lee Avenue
Suite B12
Ft. Myer, VA 22211-1199
Subj: LTC Terrence Lakin Clemency Request
Major Kemkes:
It has come to my attention that letters from military veterans would be helpful to Colonel Lakin in connection with a request for clemency which you are preparing on his behalf.
I am a former naval aviator with service in Vietnam. Following active duty as a regular naval officer, I served in the Naval Reserve until my retirement in 1982 with the rank of Commander USNR. I am also a retired airline captain, having retired in 2000 as a JFK-based international captain with Trans World Airlines.
I have followed Colonel Lakin's case with great interest and concern. I have admired Colonel Lakin not only for his long and honorable service to his country, but also for the courage of his convictions which he displayed in the matter that resulted in his court martial, conviction, and imprisonment relating to the validity of orders he received from what he believed to be a defective military chain of command................

Update: Japanese TV Captures Emotional Reunion Between Owner & Lost Dog
The Blaze ^ | April 04, 2011 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 5:52:43 PM by RobinMasters

TOKYO (AP) — A dog rescued from drifting ocean debris immediately jumped to her owner and wagged her tail at their reunion more than three weeks after Japan's tsunami.

Toshio Suzuki described Monday's reunion at the animal shelter he heads in the tsunami-wrecked Miyagi region of northern Japan. The owner of the 2-year-old mixed breed named Ban saw Friday's rescue on television.

The woman was not identified for privacy reasons. Suzuki said she has an adult daughter and that the family suffered tsunami damage but was not specific.

Why You Better Pray that God is Not Dead - Dennis Prager Diagnoses America's Disease

Why You Better Pray that God is Not Dead - Dennis Prager Diagnoses America's Disease
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | April 4, 2011 | Diane Schrader

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 5:51:55 PM by HorowitzianConservative

Editor's Note: Diane Schrader attended the David Horowitz Freedom Center's West Coast retreat this past weekend and will be filing several reports on the various speakers and panels. This is the first.

I've got a few weighty things on my mind that I'm about to unpack on you. But let's ease into it gently, courtesy of Rush Limbaugh:

Q: What do God and Barack Obama have in common?

A: Neither has a birth certificate!

Q: What is one difference between Obama and God?

A: Leftists love Obama!

Q: What's another difference between Obama and God?

A: God doesn't think he's Obama!

Heh heh. El Rushbo tells a good joke. And that's a lighthearted introduction into a heavy topic – a topic that talk show host and nationally-syndicated columnist Dennis Prager opted to take on as the final keynote speaker at this weekend's David Horowitz Freedom Center retreat in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

God, according to Prager, is in trouble.

Of course, God is not really in trouble. We're the ones who are really in trouble, because of what we as a society are doing to God. For the purposes of this discussion, it really doesn't matter if you're an atheist – the ramifications apply to us all. But Prager thinks he knows why atheism might be more attractive to a lot of people right now, and he outlined a number of reasons.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blasted the US administration for its deceitful policies, and warned that US President Barack Obama will have to face an end far more embarrassing than what his predecessor, George W. Bush, encountered.

Speaking at a press conference here in Tehran on Monday, President Ahmadinejad stated that the capitalist system sough to save itself and its main base in the Middle-East, i.e. Israel, through entering new players into the scene under the guise of the motto of change and defending the rights of the nations.

But soon it was revealed that change means a change in nations in the interest of capitalism, he added.

Attention Bill O’Reilly: The Rest of the Story

Attention Bill O'Reilly: The Rest of the Story
The Post & Email ^ | April 04, 2011 | Butterdezillion

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 5:01:03 PM by RobinMasters

WHAT WILL HE SAY NOW?

Last week in an on-air debate with Donald Trump, Bill O'Reilly based his entire case for Obama's supposed Hawaii birth on newspaper birth announcements.

With new information emerging now, O'Reilly may be interested to learn that the announcement images that were posted online cannot be from the microfilms we were told they were from. This article documents that the stories we were told were a well-orchestrated lie, which raises serious questions about the microfilms O'Reilly says he has found, since those lies back in 2008 would not have been necessary if the microfilms O'Reilly relies on today had actually been in the libraries in 2008.

Who orchestrated those lies in July of 2008, and why? O'Reilly might want to send his investigators out to find the answers to those questions, since it is his credibility – not Trump's – which is on the line now.

Sorry to make you click an extra time, but the only way I know to post the images effectively is in a PDF :

The controversial pastor who has sparked riots in Afghanistan which have left at least 20 dead has said he would rather die than stop preaching against Islam.

Reverend Terry Jones said his right to speak out was more important than the lives of those who had died during the unrest - or any American soldiers who might be killed in the future.

He said he would continue his campaign against Muslims even though every single one of his 30 parishioners had deserted him.

"In 1794, Washington personally led an army of 13,000 to crush a tax revolt in Western Pennsylvania. This was the first and last time a President ever led troops into action"

The U.S. Constitution: Tool of Centralization and Debt, 1788-Today
Gary North

(Excerpt only ~ Continued @ link...)

By 1791, Hamilton had created a vast Federal debt and the nation's first central bank, owned privately.

He had planned it from the beginning. That was why he promoted the Constitution. This was why he wrote most of The Federalist Papers.

The anti-Federalists predicted accurately what was coming in 1787. It came.

There was a conspiracy in Philadelphia in 1787. It was successful. I have written a book on this: Conspiracy in Philadelphia. You can download it for free here.

To understand the expansion of Federal power in 1788, consider this. In 1786, the Federal government's total army was 1,200 men. It was too small come to the rescue of the state of Massachusetts in putting down Shay's rebellion. This was a rebellion by rural counties against the state government's decision in 1786 to pay off state debts in silver, collected from the counties. The governor and most of the members of the legislature had bought these debts for pennies in fiat currency. Now they were about to get very rich at the expense of rural taxpayers, who had little silver. A lot of counties revolted.

That was the trigger that got George Washington to attend the Convention, which he had previously refused to agree to attend. He had been completely misinformed about the motives of the protest. A former general of his sent him letters that concealed the politics of the revolt. Read my article on this revolt: "John Hancock's Big Toe."

In 1794, Washington personally led an army of 13,000 to crush a tax revolt in Western Pennsylvania. This was the first and last time a President ever led troops into action. Because so few men volunteered, the Federal government imposed a draft. This was the whiskey rebellion.

The revolt was against Hamilton's 1791 tax on whiskey -- a tax used to raise revenues to pay off Federal debts at face value -- debts that the holders had purchased for pennies. If this sounds like a replay of Shays' rebellion and its outcome, that's because it was, but on a far larger scale.

Centralized power? I guess so.

What Hamilton didn't do, Federalist Party Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshal did do, 1801-1836. Among other things, he wrote the opinion for McCulloch v. Maryland (1819), which authorized the privately owned Second Bank of the United States to exercise a government-granted monopoly over the monetary system.

In only one fiscal year, 1836, has the U.S. government ever been debt-free.

The Constitution was from day one an instrument to consolidate Federal power and expand it. The Constitution has proven to be a weak reed in every attempt to slow down the expansion of Federal power. It has proven utterly impotent to roll Federal power back as little as a decade, ever.

The U.S. Constitution: Tool of Centralization and Debt, 1788-Today by Gary North

The U.S. Constitution: Tool of Centralization and Debt, 1788-Today

Recently by Gary North: Insider Trading: A Bum Rap

On a conservative site last week, the editor wrote this:
While the Constitution has been largely ignored over the last 80 years, the document is very real, and its purpose is clear: to limit greatly the powers of the federal government.
Having said this, he went on to a conclusion:
If Congress proves unwilling to force indiscriminate cost reductions on government then it should apply constitutional principles to the budget whereby government functions not enumerated in the Constitution are abolished, privatized, or passed to the states.
When we begin with a myth, we have a tendency to expect miracles. Let me explain.
The Constitution was established in order to strengthen the powers of the Federal government. It strengthened them vastly beyond what the British had attempted to impose on the colonies in the early 1770s.
Before the American Revolution, the British level of taxation was in the range of 1%. There were sales taxes on imported goods, but most people, then as now, bought domestically produced goods. There were taxes on paper after 1765. This affected mainly lawyers and newspaper publishers. By alienating these two influential groups, the Parliament stirred up a hornets' nest. When professional talkers and writers get squeezed by the government, the public gets an earful. "The end of liberty is nigh!" On the contrary, the end of a debt-free colonial governments was drawing nigh.
Revolutions must be financed. They are always financed with debt and fiat money. Creditors buy the IOUs with good money, then weaker money, and then – at the end of the revolt – worthless money. Then they have a supreme political goal: to get the new government to pay off the worthless IOUs at face value in gold or silver. In the 1780s, it was silver.
The Constitution was deliberately designed to centralize power vastly beyond what the legitimate constitution – the Articles of Confederation – allowed. The Federal government in 1787 was weak. In 1788, it was vastly stronger.
The newly created Federal government immediately did two things. It accepted responsibility to pay off state debts. This was Alexander Hamilton's proposal. He proposed it specifically to centralize the government by granting enormous profits to the investment class that had bought state debts for practically nothing.
The Wikipedia article on this consolidation of Federal debt is accurate in its discussion of Hamilton's motives.
Hamilton's economic plan had multiple goals. First, the debts and honor of the nation would be secured. Hamilton felt that the Federal government would not be able to borrow money from anyone in the future if these debts were not paid. By selling bonds to pay the debt, bondholders would have a direct financial interest to help the new United States government survive and thrive. Creditors who purchased the bonds could use them as collateral for loans, stimulating the economy even more.
The plan would also create a bureaucracy of agents across the country who would be tied to the Federal government instead of the individual states. Assuming the debts of the states would likewise couple financial elites in those states to the national government and less so to state governments, thereby reducing the risk of secession. Hamilton's scheme was called "debt assumption plan," and it was a radical idea in 1790.
Hamilton's Report supported ideas of war debt assumption, redemption of Confederate securities at face value, and funding of new national securities as a permanent national debt. Hamilton reasoned that creating a large financial structure, which wealthy citizens would support and belong to, would enhance the revenue and fiscal system of the national government and bring prosperity to the Federal government. He also reckoned that failure to establish the creditworthiness of the Federal government would weaken the United States, and called a permanent, reasonably-sized public debt "the powerful cement of our Union."
Hamilton's statements at the time were quite frank about all this.
When Madison and Jefferson opposed the plan, Hamilton bought them off by promising to support the swamp today known as Washington D.C. as the nation's Capitol. This was done at a private dinner with only the three in attendance. Jefferson later wrote about it..........................

Geraldo

Geraldo

Anyone see Geraldo in Libya?

The man is such a flake. he shouts he's being shot at while hitting the deck but then a guy walks behind him like nothing is happening.

Geraldo hits the deck while his pick up truck moves away with a guy sitting on the back and his camera man records Geraldo hitting the deck and shouting.

The second pick up truck has a guy firing into the air, why if they are supposed to be in a fire fight?

Yet again it seems Geraldo has staged yet another dramatic scene to get ratings and sympathy.

Why can't FOX just fire this guy and get it over and done with?

Our Dangerous Attorney General

Our Dangerous Attorney General
Human Events ^ | April 4, 2011 | Editorial

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 2:36:29 PM by jazusamo

Eric Holder should've never been confirmed as attorney general. Any man who would, as he did, urge President Bill Clinton to grant clemency to 16 members of the Puerto Rican domestic terrorist outfit FALN (a Spanish acronym for Armed Forces of National Liberation) was not only unfit to be America's lawyer, but he himself should have been investigated.

Yet Holder is, indeed, our attorney general, and his priorities are exactly where we'd expect them to be: dangerous.

Holder: That darn Congress has screwed-up 9-11 criminal trials

Holder: That darn Congress has screwed-up 9-11 criminal trials
Fox News Channel | 4/4/11

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 2:39:16 PM by pabianice

An insufferably snot-nosed and self-righteous Eric Holder just spoke on TV regarding trials for the 9-11 monsters who created the 9-11 massacre of civilians. The US Attorney General just blamed all of the bad and corrupt Obama decisions regarding these criminals on a nasty 'congress who has violated the will of the people.'

Has there ever been a more corrupt and anti-American administration? Price for Obama to win in 2012: one billion dollars from his domestic and foreign backers.

Confederate Commentary: Isn't it strange that the same people who advocate your 'voting responsibility' are the same ones who tell you that 'you can't fight City Hall'!

Confederate Commentary:
  Isn't it strange that the same people who advocate your 'voting responsibility' are the same ones who tell you that 'you can't fight City Hall'!

  That Liaise-Faire attitude has crippled America by allowing the forces behind a two-party hegemony to take & steal from you every aspect associated with what once was the American Republic !
  Anyone believing that this Country today is a 'representative' commune fulfilling the wishes of the People is living a fantasy of major proportions.
  The American People are controlled and ruled  by a two-party system whose basis is entirely self-serving and supported via THEIR numerous acts of 'inordinate' legislation that has been passed routinely and consistently over many years in which our rights, freedoms & independence have been more than compromised.
  Washington DC is a depot of mass corruption & manipulation controlled and run by a litany of Special Interests Powers whose thirst for power is unequivocal and without end.
  Anyone believing that the road they put us on, beginning in 1865, will change, is living a dream of ill-begotten nightmares whose consequences are everything everyone is seeing today but having difficulty with in understanding, identifying & rationalizing with as to why!
  America has been so long dumbed down and fueled by social upheaval that few can see the forest from the trees.
  Americans do NOT understand their history and thus they have willingly & stupidly allowed themselves to be raised as sheeple---forgetting who they once were and the greatness associated with the Republic that is NO more!
  The very word Confederate has been so demonized that the majority of Americans cannot understand the simple fact that a Confederate and its association as a people, et al, to the original Republic, as in a Confederation of Sovereigns and referred to by the Founding Fathers numerous times over, means PATRIOT!
  Thus we turned our backs on our heritage & our identity because we allowed Washington, DC to rewrite our History and alter the compass of direction resulting from an Un-Constitutional War levied against those American Confederate PATRIOTS of long ago who realized and saw what would come if they did not secede and leave in peace as they did.
  It has been, EVER SINCE, Reconstruction in the worst un-imaginable venues!
  
  The recent findings relating to THEIR Federal Reserve System regarding their far-reaching financial schemes and the lending of over $ 3.3 TRILLION DOLLARS to foreign 'elements' AND THE OBVIOUS CONSEQUENCES, ALL NEGATIVE, for the American Taxpayer should be cause for an all out Revolution.
(Remember that it was we Confederates who reported to YOU via our sources that an estimated $ 4 TRILLION add'l dollars had been printed by the Fed only months ago)
  Sadly however, the average American today CANNOT comprehend what this means to them! 
  Thus they will continue to support their Federal Jailor's whose chains are being tightened around them each and every day while willingly fighting another of their Corporately inspired Wars in another
far-off part of the world in the name of our National Security!
  It is sheer madness and fueled by an in-ability of the electorate to understand because of their own arrogance and ignorance that allows this moral ineptitude & decadency to live on.
  Meanwhile, and because of 'Corporate Globalism', our People fight & Die for the Black Gold while the puppet Obama puts constraints on further oil exploration here in the U.S., the expansion of natural gas supply's and nearly 2/3 of the entire world's fossilized fuels better know as COAL, using his EPA and other Federal agency's to prevent them from allowing America to become Energy Independent.
  And these are the 'People' who the Two-Party system asks you to diligently & dutifully 'elect' each election eve!

  The same one's that gave you the Housing debacle, Obama Care, the Revised Immigration Act of 1965, Numerous Wars & Unnecessary Deaths, the Nanny State, Entitlements, the Departments of Transportation, Energy, Agriculture, Housing, Welfare and let us NOT forget the all-seeing and all-knowing and thinking Department of Education TO NAME BUT A FEW.
  These are the SAME PEOPLE who DON'T read any of the bills they pass but whose Cancer 'We the People' have to bear.
  These are the SAME PEOPLE who have the temerity to tell YOU "that we need to pass this bill or that bill, so we know what's in it."
And These people are 'called' Representatives....or are they simply YOUR Jailors draining you of every describable aspect of YOUR American Individuality & Freedoms?
  We Confederates have always been ahead of our time.
  We saw what was coming long before 1860 and we have been telling you ever since just what in the hell has been going on.
  But it was made easier for many to look the other way once too often and most Americans allowed others to attack us and portray us in a contemporary politically-correct light as racists or rednecks, when all the time we were simply Confederate Patriots like our ancestors of old.....and calling out to YOU for the same reasons as did they when Centralism was Invading Sovereignty & personal Liberty.

 
  Today, we are living the consequences of what results when resolve & involvement are sacrificed at the alter of political correctness.
  Today, as yesteryear, ALL that we have ever predicted and warned you of is happening and occurring & YOUR eyes can NO longer deny what you are seeing!
  In short, ALL the chickens are coming home to roost and the Federal Fox has been revealed for the Beast it is.
  And now, in their hour of total desperation, they want MORE from YOU to support their failed Ideology of these last 150 years.
  The Confederacy NEVER surrendered to the Federal in 1865!
  Our Military did but our Government did NOT!
  Therefore, it's Congress and it's Government can & needs to be re-seated.
  A process that can be realized providing MOST will awaken from their Federal coma in time to realize that the Confederacy is the last bridgework remaining for a Constitutional Republic---
a Constitutional Republic that has been stripped & taken from us by Design via a Federal Oligarchy whose basis is EVERYTHING  that the Founders warned Against & tried to prevent from ever becoming.  They knew full well what mortal man was capable of and put us on a path-way to prevent that which has sadly become reality today.
  The Federal has circumvented EVERY LAW ever written to protect us while replacing them with THEIR 'new' laws, ever since 1865, allowing them to do what they were NEVER supposed to!
  Essentially, they have galvanized their illegal status into that of a legal embodiment through deliberate political deception using legislative malfeasance to under-write their station over us! 
  They exist via a controlled mandate of self-exercised deceit & corruption and they are NOT our Representatives but Representatives of those Special Interest Groups whose National & International  Interests run this Country today.
We are NOT a Government of the People, by the People and For the People!
We are a Government of the Special Interest, by the Special Interest and For the Special Interest.....
  .....and the quicker and sooner that one and all come to realize this the better YOUR chances will be for your children and grandchildren to survive!
Remember, When the Confederacy Lost, so TOO Did this Entire Country....but Only We Confederates Knew it at the Time!
Become a Confederate, become an American Patriot--- for that is precisely what the word Means... and the Country and Life YOU Save may just be YOUR own!
ALL Roads Lead to 1865- the beginning of the end of the Republic!
Craig Maus,
president, The Confederate Society of America and Proud Member of The Confederate Alliance of Independent Organizations.
Staunch Supporters for the RESTORATION of the Legal Government of the South- The Confederate States of America.

PS- ......Then as Now, It was always about Power & Control- a Sovereign Ideology vs a bloated Federal Oligarchy that would bleed it's People dry...pure & simple!

No fried food: Health Dept. workers cringe at new rules restricting foods, fragrances, decorations

No fried food: Health Dept. workers cringe at new rules restricting foods, fragrances, decorations
The New York Daily News ^ | April 4, 2011 | Kathleen Lucadamo

Posted on Monday, April 04, 2011 1:48:07 PM by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

No overbearing perfume. No obscene pictures. And definitely no French fries for work lunches.

That's the new edict for employees of the same city Health Department that brought you calorie-counting menus and snuffed out smoking on beaches and in parks.

The updated rules - which range from what workers can serve at agency powwows to how loud they can talk in the office - come as the Health Department begins to move into its new Queens digs today.

A set of guidelines for "Life in the Cubicle Village" sent to employees asks them to avoid wearing products with "noticeable odors" or posting "any displays, photos, cartoons, or other personal items that may be offensive."

They also should avoid eavesdropping.

If they can't - "at least resist the urge to add your comments," the cubicle rules recommend.

Employees also got a bright-colored brochure stipulating what can and can't be served at meetings and parties.

Tap water is a menu must when food or drinks are served. Other beverages must be less than 25 calories per 8 ounces.

"Cut muffins and bagels into halves or quarters, or order mini sizes. Offer thinly-sliced, whole-grain bread," the brochure states.

Deep-fried foods are an absolute no-no and "cannot be served."

For celebrations, cake and air-popped popcorn - "popped at the party and served in brown paper lunch bags" - are allowed.

But when a "celebration cake" is served, cookies can't be offered.

"These standards are mandatory for meetings and events sponsored by the Health Department," the brochure states.

Health honchos say they are just practicing what they preach.

"The Health Department is leading by example by updating its guidelines for food and beverages served at agency meetings and events," spokeswoman Erin Brady said.

Still, one Health Department worker said she was surprised by the brochure's nitpicking detail.

"This seems like micromanaging," she said.

The cubicle village tips are good - but unnecessary - advice, she said. "As somebody who does not have sensitivity to perfumes or scents or smells of people's foods, I thought it was kind of ridiculous, though I'm sure the people who do have those kinds of problems are grateful."

The gerbil-loving food choices are in step with Health Commissioner Thomas Farley's push to reduce New Yorkers salt, sugar and alcohol consumption.

The Daily News reported in December that he put the kibosh on booze at the agency's holiday bash and called for a menu that included "healthy options."

The agency's nearly 3,000 employees begin a massive move today from their age-old lower Manhattan headquarters to new office space built by Tishman Speyer in Long Island City, Queens.

The move is expected to be complete by May.
