Americans Must Show Their ID Everyday

September 6, 2010

On Sun, 9/5/10,  Pat Christensen  wrote the following email.  I decided it was good enough to pass on, but I’m not an expert at implementing computer functions, so instead of copying and pasting, I had to re-write it to put in on my blog.   I hope it helps those who are against the Arizona Immigration Bill reconsider their stance on it.  

I’m a Legal American Citizen and I must show my ID when: 

  1. Pulled over by the Police.
  2. Making purchases on my Department Store Credit Card.
  3. When I show up for a Doctor appointment.
  4. When filling out a Credit Card or Loan application.
  5. When applying for or renewing a Drivers License or Passport.
  6. When applying for any kind of Insurance.
  7. When filling out a College application.
  8. When donating Blood.
  9. When obtaining certain Prescription Drugs.
  10. When making some Debit purchases, especially when I’m out of state.
  11. When collecting a Boarding Pass for Airline or Train Travel.

 I’m sure that there are more instances, but the point is, that we Citizens of the USA are required to prove who we are almost everyday.

 Why should people in our country Illegally be exempt?????

 So, why shouldn’t we guard our borders as closely as every other country in the World?  ss

Governors With Guts! Christie, Jindal and Brewer

July 3, 2010

Well, I like Governor Christie of New Jersey.  I like a Politician that does what he says.  To help balance his states budget, his state Treasurer gave him 378 quick-freezes he could put thru and he did 375 of them.  Now, this is a guy who takes his job seriously and does it. 

Congratulations Governor Christie, you are a man of your word.  We need more Politicians like you.

I would like to also point out that there are a couple of more Governors out there that need mentioning.  One is Governor Bobby Jindal.  This guy has been out there with his constituents everyday, since the oil spill, which is about 75 days in a row, helping and doing what he can.  Now, that’s dedication.  He certainly deserves recognition.

And last but not least Governor Brewer of Arizona.  I mean this woman is really good.  I’m amazed that a Governor has taken on the crooked machine in DC, and even the President.

And she has been very straightforward in her criticism of Obama, and I love it.  She’s mad that he has not secured the border, and she’s right.  It is his sworn duty, his obligation, to make that border secure.

There are Americans being raped, kidnapped and murdered in Arizona by illegals, gunrunners, and Drug Lords and “He” (Obama) wants to sue her, and the state of Arizona.  It’s time he gets his priorities straight. 

I call for Impeachment!  He has basically destroyed this country and done it in a year and a half too.  It’s time for him to go.  He may (or May Not) have been born in the USA, I don’t know, because whether or not that Birth Certificate they show on the Internet is real (and I’m one of those who says it’s not) or not, he doesn’t act like an American.  Which should be a tell tale sign that he’s not. 

So, he can’t be Impeached until the Republicans replace 41 Representatives in the House, and gain a majority, so all I can do right now is pray that they do.

Then we can fix what he has broken.   ss

Mr. President, Secure Our Southern Border!

July 2, 2010

I got up early this morning.  I thought I would get an early start, go buy some groceries for a Fourth of July celebration that I’m having tomorrow, on the 3rd.  I thought I would prepare the food today, clean the house, and then relax tomorrow and enjoy our company. 

I happened to watch the news this morning, which is a daily habit of mine, and as usual, I’m upset again, about what I see and hear about Illegal Immigration and more importantly about the fact that President Obama still has not secured the Arizona border.

I am truly tired of hearing his campaign rhetoric about the comprehensive Immigration Legislation that he basically is demanding that Congress pass, and of course is blaming the Republicans (again) for not joining him and the House Democrats in passing this urgent (again) Legislation, which they undoubtedly will not read, even if it comes up for a vote.

Governor Brewer made a statement yesterday, and I happen to agree with her, that Americans are tired (so tired) of Obamas refusal to implement the Federal Immigration laws already on the books, to secure our Southern border.  She agrees with him that we need comprehensive Immigration legislation, as do many Americans, but right now, it is more important to cut off the illegal infiltration of our country by Drug Lords, Gun Runners, Rapists, Kidnappers, and Murderers.  This is an immediate and urgent matter, the lives of Americans are at stake, and the only thing he can say, is “I want immediate Immigration legislation passed”.   It’s always what “He wants”, never mind that 70% of the American public agree with Governor Brewer and the new Arizona Immigration bill. 

I am tired of Obamas repetitive speeches on what “He wants” all the time.   I am tired of this President’s constant immature behavior, his name-calling, and his threats to anyone who disagrees with him, and I’m just tired of him.   He is, in my opinion, by far, the most unprofessional example of a President this country has had the misfortune to have in the White House, and instead of representing the American people, chooses to impose his radical agenda on us all.  He deliberately ignores the fact that he is there to do our bidding, not his own. 

Just a side note here: Yesterday, just 12 miles over the border of Arizona, into Mexico, there was a battle between two Drug cartels, in which 21 people died.  This happened just Twelve miles away from the Arizona border.

The day before, a gun battle on the Mexican side of the border, sent bullets from AK47’s into the outside walls of a City Hall building on the American side of the border.

Last week along the border, in Arizona, the Federal government put up signs (on American soil) warning Americans to “go no further”, because that area has been taken over by the Mexican Drug Lords, and Americans could be killed.

Just how much land are you planning on returning to Mexico, Mr. President?  You keep saying that the border is as secure as it ever was.  Well, I don’t recall the last time that the United States of America, gave land back to Mexico. 

What are you waiting for Mr. President?  When will you start defending Americans on the home front by  “Winning the Hearts and Minds” of the American people?

McChrystal’s “Walk of Shame”

June 23, 2010

 General Stanley McChrystal, the top guy, the U.S. Commander and Strategist for the Afghan War, after being summoned to DC, by the White House with his resignation in hand,  awaits his one on one meeting with President Obama.   The controversy is over an article that appeared in  Rolling Stone magazine, where  McChrystal and his aides mocked the National security team and critisized Obama over their stance (or lack thereof) concerning the Afghan War.

McChrsytal is expected to endure the “Walk of Shame” by first having  an initial meeting with the Defense Secretary Robert Gates at the Pentagon, then head over to the White House and have a sit down with Obama, and then meet with the administration officials in the Situation Room.  His future is uncertain. 

It is my opinion that he will be replaced and that this appearance at the White House is more of a “Walk of Shame”  before he is relieved of duty.   It is a well known fact that Obama cannot tolerate ANY critisism (as Jack Nicholson put it in the movie A Few Good Men when he said “You can’t handle the Truth” of his performance, by anyone, so this man’s fate is definitely already decided.


It was just announced that McChrystal has been relieved of duty ( the media keeps repeating “relieved”) not that he resigned, because the White House (who is in bed with the media) wants to give the impression, even if not true, that McChrystal was “fired” and didn’t resign. Obama must always have the upper hand publically.

It is a sad day for this country when the reputation of a man of  McChrystal’s long, heroic and patriotic  service to this country is wiped out by a man who never served in the military, was never vetted and was not qualified to be President in the first place.

 The news media will not remind the public about the fact that McChrystal requested soldiers last year in order to carry out his mission successfully and that Obama (as usual) waited and waited to respond to the General even though McChrystal at the time said he needed these soldiers ASAP if we were to win the war.  Instead Obama took, I believe 2 months before ever responding to the General’s request, and then he gave him 30,000 troops instead of the 40,000 he requested, and it took another 4 months for them to get there.

McChrystal as the top General of the military forces in Afghanistan, certainly earned the right to be upset, having to wait for a response, while trying to do the impossible, for a group of unqualified administrative officials, and President Obama, most of whom, never served their country in the military, to make up their minds,  about his increase in troops request.

 Obama and his group of administration officials set dead lines for progress and ending the war and bringing the troops home, yet Obama took his good old time giving McChrystal the tools (troops) he needed to perform the job.

 It is too bad that the message in Rolling Stone magazine was overlooked, just because it’s Politically incorrect  for a military man to point out the Presidents incompetance, when in fact, that is all he has displayed since taking in office.

As I write this the President is giving another speech on TV.  It seems that is the only thing he is good at: reading the teleprompter.  This is just one more opportunity for  Obama  to be Presidential and keep the man who came up with the plan to defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan,  in charge of the Afghan War.  But, his groupies, the Dems in the House wanted this man out, claiming it would show weakness if the President did not relieve him of duty.   His weakness is that he can’t make a decision on his own.

I believe it would have shown strength if he had kept McChrystal on the job, after having a one on one meeting with him and disgussing their differences.  Sadly, Obama can not see his own biggest weakness, which is his “High Regard” for “Himself”.

As I listen to his speech I hear him say that “He” just can’t tolerate division in the ranks”. Obama said he welcomes debate but won’t tolerate division.  Is he kidding?  He has done nothing but divide every aspect of our country, and every group of Americans (The Tea Party people), including “blacks and whites” (when he called Boston’s,  White Police officer’s actions stupid,when he detained Obama’s  Harvard friend, Gates) and how about the hatred he has promoted between American citizens and Mexican citizens and illegal Mexicans. 

I believe Obama will go down in history as the “Divider”.  As for the fact that he welcomes “Debate”  I don’t think so.  He and the Democrats in the House have done nothing but relentlessly and publically “slice and dice” anyone (Gov. Brewer, Sen. Barton, BP CEO Tony Hayward, and even Sarah Palin and the Tea Partiers) who has disagreed with them. 

This is truly a sad day in America, because after repeated incompetance by the White House, and Congress,  many Americans still don’t see it.  ss

Will Obama, Step Up And Secure the Borders?

May 13, 2010

I have been watching Cable news for the last few days and am quite upset with what is going on in response to the new Arizona Immigration law.   Obama preempted Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s scheduled press conference last week, where she was going to announce her decision to sign the new Immigration bill into law.  In his speech, at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the military, Obama made the following statement about the Governors decision to sign the Immigration bill, “Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe”. 

I cannot tell you how upset this President has made me.  Then I think who am I, that he should even care what I think?  My answer, to myself, surprised even me.

I’m a Patriotic American citizen, President Obama is supposed to “REPRESENT” me.  He is supposed to “PROTECT” me, as an American citizen.  He is supposed to be “HONEST” with me.  He is supposed to “LEAD” the American people.  He is supposed to be “PROUD” to be the Commander and Chief.  But what has he done?

He is more interested in “DIVIDING” than he is in “UNITING”.

Obama has been more interested in “REPRESENTING FORIEGNORS” than the people he was elected to represent.  He is more concerned with “PROTECTING” the rights of Illegals, than he is at protecting the LIVES of Americans.  He is more interested in “LEADING” the Global community than in Leading Americans according to the Constitution.  He is more “PROUD” of being Black than he is at being part Black and part White, a fact that he could have used to Unite Americans.  He seems to have forgotten that he is both Black and White.

His thinking is Racist, yet he constantly accuses others,  “Whites” of being racist.  He is more interested in driving a wedge between Blacks and Whites than he is in bringing the Country together.  Consider Martin Luther King, Jrs. words  I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”. 

Yet, Obama has, with his comments about the new Arizona Immigration Law, deliberately misled all those who believe in him as a leader.  He has divided the American people.  He has convinced them that the new Immigration Law is Racist, that it involves racial profiling, even though, it plainly states in the Law that no racial profiling will be tolerated, it is prohibited.

He completely avoids mentioning that the new Immigration Law in Arizona was passed to help protect Arizona residents, Hispanic and White, from drug dealers on killing sprees, and from Kidnappings that have been in so many numbers that Arizona is second in the World, only behind Mexico City as the Kidnapping Capitol. 

He has refused to do anything to help these people,  American citizens, White, Black and Hispanic, who are legally here, by continuing to build the Wall, which was started a while back, to help keep the majority of Illegals out of the country.   He refuses to secure the Borders.  Foreignors do not belong here unless they come in legally.  It’s the Law and Obama has no interest in enforcing the Law.   Now, why is that? 

Why would the President of the United States of America not give a damn about protecting the American people?  Maybe some news media person might consider asking that question, that’s if there are any left who actually care about reporting “NEWS”.

Obama has, because he knows that he has the “power of words”,  used those words, to encourage  those, many who are Illegal (and as far as I’m concerned, do not have the right)  to march and protest in our country.  He has welcomed their misconception of what is a right of an American citizen, and what, if any, are the rights of visitors to our country, much less what is the right, IF ANY, of an Illegal alien, in our country. 

I can assure you that Illegals DO NOT have the right to demand that America changes it’s Laws to satisfy their wants and needs. 

No President, no Czar, no Congressman, no Illegal, and no misguided American, can tell me that it is “Illegal” for me to demand, as an American citizen, that the Law of the Country, my country, be enforced and “NOW,”  and if I know anything, I know this;  that it is “My” right to speak out.   ss

Obama Challenges Arizona Immigration Law

April 24, 2010

By Paul Davenport And Jonathan J. Cooper, Associated Press Writers

PHOENIX – Civil rights advocates vowed Saturday to challenge Arizona’s tough new law targeting illegal immigration, saying it will lead to racial profiling of Hispanics despite the governor’s assurance abuses won’t be tolerated.

Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill that supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation’s busiest gateway for human and drug smuggling from Mexico and home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants.

Read complete article here:  Advocates vow challenges to Ariz. immigration law - Yahoo! News.

Earlier Friday, President Barack Obama called the Arizona bill “misguided” and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it’s legal. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level — or leave the door open to “irresponsibility by others.”  

Now, Obama, made this statement (most likely her people spoke to his people, so he knew she was going to sign it) before Governor Brewer announced she was going to sign the bill into law, so that he could set the story up to go his way. 

In my opinion, President Obama instead of insulting, yet another, duly elected official in this country, who just so happens to disagree with him, should have said that “I’m going to check with the Justice Department and Home Land Security, since it is the Federal Governments job to make sure that AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE SAFE, and see why they have not taken care of this problem, of Hispanics coming into the USA illegally. 

That would have been the appropriate response, from my point of view, but then, who am I, but just another American citizen who is not happy with what is going on in DC?

 American laws were set up to protect Americans, and law-abiding citizens, but in the last 20 or so years, it seems that there purpose has been changed to protect criminals, illegals and terrorists trying to destroy  the USA.  I am tired of anything that is described as “Politically Correct”.   

I know, I’m not a Congressman, I’m not one of the 4% richest people in the country, and I surely am not some liberal Professor from Harvard.  Nope, I’m or shall I say I was a hard working American Citizen until I lost my job.  But I do know one thing, and that is if you want to talk about “Political Correctness” then we should start by discussing how it is that Congress is considered “Politically Correct” when they vote for bills that their constituents do not want. 

Maybe we should discuss what,  I would assume, Nancy Pelosi feels is “Politically Correct” when she refers to American Citizens as being Astro Turf or radicals because she doesn’t like them disagreeing with her, and because, as she puts it, she feels that she is a better judge of what we need than we are.

Or maybe we should talk about the fact that OUR PRESIDENT feels an obligation to continually apologize to the world for what he feels is bad behavior on the part of the American people.  Just how is his non-Presidential behavior, which he has been displaying almost daily, in one manner or another, gets  misinterpreted by the Liberal media, to be “Politically Correct”? 

I’m so tired of people complaining about Racial Profiling.  If you are looking for illegal Hispanics (Mexicans) then it stands to reason that you are not going to stop and question a Japanese citizen 99% of the time.  Yes, probably many legal Americans of Hispanic descent are going to be stopped and asked to prove American citizenship, and why, because they look Mexican.   Hey, the saying is If it looks like a Duck, Talks like a Duck, then it’s a Duck”. 

 Why should this be Racial profiling?  It would be considered, along with how he was dressed,  part of  the description of someone who  potentially committed a crime;  like sneaking into the United States of America.  Yes, folks, that’s still ILLEGAL!  And I’m tired of constantly being forced as an American to bend over backwards to satisfy the sensitivities of people who are, in this particular case, “Enemies of the State (USA)”.  Yes,  if you are here illegally,  it’s a CRIME!     ss
