Cheering Murder of Person with Disability

Cheering the murder of a person with a disability is standard procedure for blood thirsty yahoo citizens, journalists, police and prosecutors. With no PAC and negative political connections it is simply OK to kill persons with disabilities and accuse them of murderous intent. Who will doubt what the politically connected and wealthy psychiatrists say? They are all wired into police and prosecutors' offices. How many vulnerable people die each year from intentional harm by psychiatrists in the name of good? When will journalists open their eyes and begin to scrutinize these criminals and their armed murderous accomplices?

Dems Fear Tea Party

[From article]
"So, mean right-winger Tea Partiers are hurting the feelings of our sainted elected officials in Washington. There are rumors of intimidation, death threats and, horror of horrors, inappropriate language. So thin-skinned are these folks that Sarah Palin's simple exhortation, "don't retreat, reload," was referred to as "violent words and imagery." Even dead Republicans are the subject of posthumous excoriation, as in these noble words of Barry Goldwater: "Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice." One wonders what they would make of Thomas Jefferson's observation that, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

High Tech Crimes

It is amazing that he was arrested at all. Police and prosecutors have a difficult time understanding new technology besides consumer electronics and their gear. They do not like complicated cases. There is a pervasive lack of ability, training and concern about high tech criminal abuses by public and private persons.
Journalists are not much better in this area which is why criminals are free to abuse humans with technology that few know about or care about.

Black Professor's Criminal Hearing Adjourned

Why is the fact that Prof. McIntyre is black and the woman he allegedly punched in the face is white and that they were arguing about race omitted from this story? Do the facts conflict with the misguided liberal propaganda that all black people at Columbia are victims and white people at Columbia are racists? If it were reversed and the accused assailant was a white man and the woman attacked was black and they argued about race, would that be reported?

"To end the practice of "birthright citizenship," all that is required is to correct the misinterpretation of that amendment's first sentence: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside." From these words has flowed the practice of conferring citizenship on children born here to illegal immigrants."

Anti Semitism in Sweden

[From article]

"The fundamental difference is that here in Copenhagen, Jews feel that the police, state and authorities take the issue very seriously and are on top of the situation, while in Malmo the Jewish community feel unsafe because the political will is not there," he said.

Malmo's Jews say they feel little support from Mayor Ilmar Reepalu, a left-winger who told a Swedish newspaper in January he thought the anti-Semitism was coming from extreme-right groups. He also drew criticism for blaming Malmo Jews for not distancing themselves from the Israeli campaign in Gaza."

A Point of No Return?

By Thomas Sowell

Ed Freeman Medal of Honor Winner

You're a 19 year old kid.

You're critically wounded and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley.

November 11, 1965.

LZX-ray,Vietnam.

Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense,
from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're
not getting out.

Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll
never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.

You look up to see an unarmed Huey.

But ... it doesn't seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you.

He's not Medi-Vac so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into
the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load
2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses.

And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!!

He took about 30 of you and your buddies out who would never have gotten
out.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died August 21, 2008
last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise,Idaho.

May God Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's
passing, but we've sure
seen a whole bunch

about Tiger Woods.

Confessions of a Muslim

[From several internet sites]

From the heart of a Muslim - Tawfik Hamid

I was born a Muslim and lived all my life as a follower of Islam.

After the barbaric terrorist attacks done by the hands of my fellow Muslims everywhere on this globe, and after the too many violent acts by Islamists in many parts of the world, I feel responsible as a Muslim and as a human being, to speak out and tell the truth to protect the world and Muslims as well from a coming catastrophe and war of civilizations.

I have to admit that our current Islamic teaching creates violence and hatred toward Non-Muslims.

We Muslims are the ones who need to change.

Until now we have accepted polygamy, the beating of women by men, and killing those who convert from Islam to other religions.

We have never had a clear and strong stand against the concept of slavery or wars, to spread our religion and to subjugate others to Islam and force them to pay a humiliating tax called Jizia.

We ask others to respect our religion while all the time we curse non-Muslims loudly (in Arabic) in our Friday prayers in the Mosques.

What message do we convey to our children when we call the Jews "Descendants of the pigs and monkeys".. Is this a message of love and peace, or a message of hate?

I have been into churches and synagogues where they were praying for Muslims. While all the time we curse them, and teach our generations to call them infidels, and to hate them.

We immediately jump in a 'knee jerk reflex' to defend Prophet Mohammed when someone accuses him of being a pedophile while, at the same time, we are proud with the story in our Islamic books, that he married a young girl seven years old (Aisha) when he was above 50 years old.

I am sad to say that many, if not most of us, rejoiced in happiness after September 11th and after many other terror attacks.

Muslims denounce these attacks to look good in front of the media, but we condone the Islamic terrorists and sympathise with their cause.

Till now our 'reputable' top religious authorities have never issued a Fatwa or religious statement to proclaim Bin Laden as an apostate, while an author, like Rushdie, was declared an apostate who should be killed according to Islamic Shariia law just for writing a book criticizing Islam.

Muslims demonstrated to get more religious rights as we did in France to stop the ban on the Hejab (Head Scarf), while we did not demonstrate with such passion and in such numbers against the terrorist murders.

It is our absolute silence against the terrorists that gives the energy to these terrorists to continue doing their evil acts.

We Muslims need to stop blaming our problems on others or on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. As a matter of honesty, Israel is the only light of democracy, civilization, and human rights in the whole Middle East.

We kicked out the Jews with no compensation or mercy from most of the Arab countries to make them "Jews-Free countries" while Israel accepted more than a million Arabs to live there, have its nationality, and enjoy their rights as human beings.

In Israel, women can not be beaten legally by men, and any person can change his/her belief system with no fear of being killed by the Islamic law of 'Apostasy,' while in our Islamic world people do not enjoy any of these rights. I agree that the 'Palestinians' suffer, but they suffer because of their corrupt leaders and not because of Israel.

It is not common to see Arabs who live in Israel leaving to live in the Arab world. On the other hand, we used to see thousands of Palestinians going to work with happiness in Israel, its 'enemy'. If Israel treats Arabs badly as some people claim, surely we would have seen the opposite happening.

We Muslims need to admit our problems and face them. Only then we can treat them and start a new era to live in harmony with human mankind. Our religious leaders have to show a clear and very strong stand against polygamy, pedophilia, slavery, killing those who convert from Islam to other religions, beating of women by men, and declaring wars on non-Muslims to spread Islam.

Then, and only then, do we have the right to ask others to respect our religion. The time has come to stop our hypocrisy and say it openly: 'We Muslims have to Change'.


Dr. Tawfik Hamid (aka Tarek Abdelhamid), is an Islamic thinker and reformer, and one time Islamic extremist from Egypt. He was a member of a terrorist Islamic organization JI with Dr. Ayman Al-Zawaherri who became later on the second in command of Al-Qaeda. Some twenty-five years ago, he recognized the threat of Radical Islam and the need for a reformation based upon modern peaceful interpretations of classical Islamic core texts.

Hotel Business After Civil Rights Complaint

[From article]

"The couple saw their Liverpool business brought to its knees after an investigation into what was deemed a religiously aggravated hate crime against Ericka Tazi. The 60-year-old white British convert complained that the couple had called the prophet Mohammed a 'warlord' and told her that Muslim women were oppressed.

The case against them was thrown out after a judge at Liverpool magistrates' court said it flew in the face of their right to freedom of religious expression."

WSJ on Sarah Palin

[From article]

"the same species of class bias that Mrs. Palin provokes in her enemies and her admirers is at work among the conservative intellectuals who are so embarrassed by her. When William F. Buckley Jr., then the editor of National Review, famously quipped that he would rather be ruled by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the combined faculties of Harvard and MIT, most conservative intellectuals responded with a gleeful amen. But put to the test by the advent of Sarah Palin, along with the populist upsurge represented by the Tea Party movement, they have demonstrated that they never really meant it.[. . .]

As for me, after more than a year of seeing how those "prodigious oratorical and intellectual gifts" have worked themselves out in action, I remain more convinced than ever of the soundness of Buckley's quip, in the spirit of which I hereby declare that I would rather be ruled by the Tea Party than by the Democratic Party, and I would rather have Sarah Palin sitting in the Oval Office than Barack Obama."

What is a Recess Appointment?

What is a recess appointment?

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution grants the President the authority to:

Nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, . . . appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law.

Under normal circumstances, when a vacancy occurs in one of these posts, the President nominates an individual to fill the position and the Senate then votes to either confirm or reject the President's nominee. However, the Framers anticipated that vacancies would occur while the Senate was not in session. The Constitution provides that (also in Article II, Section 2): The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

While this provision is fairly straightforward, it has produced several differences of opinion between the Congress and the President. How many days must the Senate fail to convene for it to lapse into a recess? Does a position have to become vacant during a Senate recess for a valid recess appointment to be made or does the position simply have to remain vacant during the recess? Instead of allowing the Court to settle these disputes, the Congress and the President have generally agreed to work together to solve them. This makes sense because neither side has a particularly clear interest in forcing the issue. If the President tries to force recess appointments on the Senate, thus circumventing the normal "advice and consent" process, the Congress can refuse to appropriate funds to pay the salaries of the appointees. The Senate might also take the extraordinary measure of blocking future nominations to "teach the President a lesson." Furthermore, if the Senate took a hostile approach to all recess appointments, it would essentially have to remain in session all of the time--an inefficient solution, to say the least.

Currently, the President and Congress generally adhere to a procedure for recess appointments that minimizes the potential for interbranch conflict. If the President wishes to make a recess appointment or appointments, he generally sends a list of persons to be appointed to members of the Senate shortly before or during a recess. If Senators express serious concerns about a nominee, the President will likely hold off on the appointment until the Senate is back in session and the normal procedure can be followed.

[From article]
"For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the president withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of.

Yet that is how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.[. . .]
the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House phone line."

Dangers of US Deficit

[From article]
"The "tipping point" we see in Greece (and the "contagion countries" on the edges of Europe) occurs when debt exceeds 100 percent of the country's GDP. That's the signal that a nation will be unable to pay its bills -- jeopardizing financial stability.
[. . .]
Pre-TARP, gross federal debt was 70 percent of GDP. It's now estimated at about 90 percent of GDP. Add in the $1.6 trillion debt liability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and we're already at that 100 percent debt-to-GDP tipping point."

Recent hostile outbursts by the US gov't must be viewed in the context that the US-Israel relationship has been on a downward spiral since Obama.

Black and White TV

[Written by an old person]

Black and White TV. Excellent
"Good night and may God bless."
i don't think the pics willcome through, but the reading material is good. I think you'll enjoy
it. Whoever wrote this must have been my next door neighbor because it
totally described my childhood to a 'T.' Hope you enjoy it.
Black and White
Black and White (Under age 40? You won't understand.)
You could hardly see for all the snow,
Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go.
Pull a chair up to the TV set,
'Good Night, David.
Good Night, Chet.'
My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting
board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food
poisoning.

My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw
sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown
paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e..coli.


Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a
pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a
pager was the school PA system.

We all took gym, not PE...and risked permanent injury with a pair of high
top Keds (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic
shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall
any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer
we are now.
Flunking gym was not an option.... even for stupid kids! I guess PE must
be much harder than gym.

Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and
staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.

We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system
we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was
allowed to be proud of myself.

I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station,
Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.

Oh yeah... and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got
that bee sting? I could have been killed!

We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant
construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of
mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did)
and then we got our butt spanked.

Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49
bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the
contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a
threat.

We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either; because if we did we got
our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got
home.

I recall w neighbors from next door coming over and doing his tricks
on the front stoop, just before he fell off.

Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house.

Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof.. It was
a neighborhood run amok.
To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they
were from a dysfunctional family.

How could we possibly have known that?

We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes.

We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn't even
notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac!

How did we ever survive?

LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA; AND TO ALL WHO DIDN'T, SORRY FOR
WHAT YOU MISSED

Ann Coulter's Health Insurance Plan




http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=36080

Ann Coulter
My Healthcare Plan

Murphy's Law for Police

Murphy’s Laws for Law Enforcement

1. Bullet Proof’ vests aren’t.

2. The bigger they are, the harder they are to
make fall. They also punch, kick and choke harder too.

3. The speed at which you respond to a fight call
is inversely proportional to how long you’ve been on the job.

4. Pepper spray works on cops too, and
regardless of wind direction, will always blow back in your face.

5. High speed chases will always proceed from
an area of light traffic to an area of extremely heavy traffic.

6. If you know someone who tortures animals
and wets the bed, he is either a serial killer or he works in the Chief's Office.

7. Placing a gun back in the holster with
your finger on the trigger will cause you to walk with a limp.

8. Flash suppressors don’t really.

9. If you have `cleared’ all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.

10. If a cop swings a baton in a fight, he will hit
other cops more often than he will hit the dirt bags he swings at.

11. Domestic arguments will always migrate from an area of few available weapons (living room), to an area with many available weapons. (kitchen).

12. If you punch out a handcuffed prisoner
for spitting at you, you are about to become a star on `Eyewitness News’.

13. Bullets work on old cops too. They also work on weight lifters, martial arts experts,
Firearms Instructors, Detectives, S.W.A.T. jocks, and others who consider themselves
immortal.

14. When a civilian sees a blue/red light approaching at a high rate of speed, he will
always pull into the lane the cop needs to use.

15. If you drive your patrol car to the geometric center of the Gobi Desert, within five minutes
some dumb ass will pull along side you and ask for directions.

16. You can never drive slow enough to please the citizens who don’t need a cop, and you
can never drive fast enough to please the ones who do.

17. Any scum bag with a rifle is a better shot than any cop with a pistol.

18. From behind you, the bad guys can see your
night sights as well as you can.

19. On any call, there will always be more `bad guys’ than there are good guys, and the
farther away your back-up will be.

20. The longer you’ve been a cop, the shorter
your flashlight and your temper gets.

21. Just THINK, whatever you are about to do, if there is a
good chance it will get you killed, you probably shouldn’t do it.

22. You should never do a shotgun search of a
dark warehouse with a cop whose nickname is “Boomer.”

23. The better you do your job, the more likely you are to be shot, injured,
complained about, sued, investigated, or subpoenaed on your day off.

24. If a “large group” of drunk bikers are “holed-up” in a house, the Dispatcher will
send one sector car back-up.

If there is “one” biker “holed-up” in a house,
they send the entire S.W.A.T. Team,
GO FIGURE!!!

Drug Company Deceptions

[From article]
"On the morning of Sept. 2, 2009, another Pfizer unit, Pharmacia & Upjohn, agreed to plead guilty to the same crime. This time, Pfizer executives had been instructing more than 100 salespeople to promote Bextra -- a drug approved only for the relief of arthritis and menstrual discomfort -- for treatment of acute pain of all kinds.

For this new felony, Pfizer paid the largest criminal fine in U.S. history: $1.19 billion. On the same day, it paid $1 billion to settle civil cases involving the off-label promotion of Bextra and three other drugs with the United States and 49 states.

"At the very same time Pfizer was in our office negotiating and resolving the allegations of criminal conduct in 2004, Pfizer was itself in its other operations violating those very same laws," Loucks, 54, says. "They've repeatedly marketed drugs for things they knew they couldn't demonstrate efficacy for. That's clearly criminal."

The penalties Pfizer paid for promoting Bextra off-label were the latest chapter in the drug's benighted history. The FDA found Bextra to be so dangerous that Pfizer took it off the market for all uses in 2005."

Dems Silent About Shooting of Republican Office

[From article]

"Eric Cantor, after specifically condemning all acts of violence - which, considering that he’s a Congressman whose office got shot at, is damned charitable of him - called for the Democratic leadership to take responsibility of their own side’s hotheads and help cool this all down."

The DNC thinks shooting at Republicans ‘appropriate.’ [And a fundraising opportunity!]

Eugenics, Marriage and Match Makers

[From article]

David Popenoe, a founder of the National Marriage Project, is the son of Paul Popenoe, the father of marriage counselling, who is best remembered for the Ladies’ Home Journal feature “Can This Marriage Be Saved?”[. . .]

he was a leader in the campaign to sterilize the insane and the weak of mind.[. . .]

For Popenoe, marriage counselling was the flip side of compulsory vasectomy and tubal ligation: sterilize the unfit; urge the fit to marry.[. . .]
California passed a forced-sterilization law. (Two-thirds of American states eventually did the same.) In 1913, [Stanford University President David Starr] Jordan appointed Popenoe editor of the Journal of Heredity. With Gosney, he charted the progress of California’s sterilization project. He traveled from one asylum to the next, counting, inspecting. Some twenty thousand men and women were sterilized in California. Popenoe estimated that about ten million Americans—about a tenth of the population—should be sterilized.[. . .]
The constitutionality of compulsory-sterilization laws was brought before the Supreme Court in 1927, in Buck v. Bell. [. . .]
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., writing for the eight-to-one majority, concluded, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” Buck was sterilized.[. . .]
Eugenics relied on a colossal misunderstanding of science and a savage misreading of history.
[. . .]
Eugenics dates to the Progressive Era, when it was faddish. Early on, and particularly before the First World War, it was embraced by reformers on the left, from Jane Addams to Woodrow Wilson[. . .]
In 1934, Popenoe wrote about “Mein Kampf” admiringly, and at length. “Hitler himself—though a bachelor—has long been a convinced advocate of race betterment through eugenic measures,”
[. . .]
Paul Popenoe launched computer dating in 1956, on a UNIVAC.[. . .]
in Popenoe’s most influential book, “Life Without Father” (1996), he described what he called “the human carnage of fatherlessness.” The nation, Popenoe worried, was at risk “of committing social suicide.”

New Jersey Move Over Law

NEW New Jersey LAW

New Law: If a patrol car is pulled over to the side of the road, you must
change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down by
20 mph. Every state except Hawaii and Mary land and D.C. has adopted this
law now.

In New Jersey , the "Move-over" law became operative in 2009, fine up to
$500. _http://www.moveoveramerica.com/_

It is a fairly new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side
of the road, if you are able, you are to move into the far lane. The
cost of the ticket includes 3 points on your license and a mandatory
court appearance.

Civilian Life Compared to Military



When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard....

...
to listen to his son whine about being bored.


.....to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes
.


To be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.


....to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep.


...to be silent when people pray to G
od for a new car.


.....to control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower.


...to be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying.



.....to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to
Send their kids off to summer camp.


.....to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.



.....to control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.



.....to remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog.



......to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.



......to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.



.....to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.


The only thing harder than being a Soldier...



Is loving one.
