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?

Democracy Begins With The Power of the Ballot

May 17, 2010

“And let it be said that we are the party of open, honest government that doesn’t peddle the agenda of whichever lobbyist or special interest can write the biggest check. The party who believes that in this democracy, influence and access should begin and end with the power of the ballot”.  Barak Obama, August 28, 2008

 With the passage of the Health Care Bill and the underhanded, manipulative and as far as I’m concerned,  illegal way this Bill was forced upon Americans, I can see why so many are truly angry.  I’m just an ordinary American.  I’m not famous or rich(far from it), but I have had a good education, and have had successes and failures in life.  I do have common sense though, and for the life of me, I can not understand why so many people don’t.  Maybe people don’t  have common sense because they didn’t have proper family guidance growing up, or maybe because they didn’t have a religious upbringing, or maybe it’s because they didn’t get a good education.  For whatever reason, it appears that ”common sense” is not as common,  now days, in the USA.  What we do have is an abundance of betrayal, bribary, cheating, lies, manipulation, threats and retaliation by our elected officials, directed at the American people and aiming at the heart of our Constitution, the foundation of our Republic, and it appears to be taking place on World Wide Cable News. 

As Americans we don’t want to be made fools of, so many try not to acknowledge what is taking place, hoping that if they ignore it, it will certainly go away.  Well, folks “it ain’t gonna happen”, it’s here and it’s here to stay until we defeat it by fighting back.  Others say “let’s give him a chance” referring to Obama (like  he hasn’t had enough time)?  Maybe if he got off the campaign trail and actually acted Presidential instead of like a Community Organizer, America would feel like someone was actually in charge in Washington. 

But to our dismay we have been led down a trail of back room, in the dead of night, unethical, and  in my mind, illegal deals putting the Health Care Bill into Law, by any and all means possible, even though the majority of the American public polled was against the Health Care Bill as it was written.  It has always amazed me at what point a person could be bought.  It seems though the price tag is above and beyond the price of money, and power, the price of Freedom is too high a price to pay, and Congress never had the right to sell what was not  theirs to sell,

So, to say that the Democratic Party is the Party of “Open, Honest” government is just another lie by a group of elected elitiests who have completely ignored their duty to God and Country for fame, money and power.  How were they able to accomplish this? By Americans lack of involvement, until it was too late, to stop them. 

The Tea Party people, though they have accomplished more than I believe anyone thought they would, and they have much more work to do, if they are to succeed in the end.  Success for them involves taking back their country from the grasp of the czars, (30 +) radical buddies of Obama’s and it entails removing a President from office whose agenda has always been to replace  our Democracy with Socialism.   More interested in hearing himself talk, by constantly campaigning, he has betrayed the people he was elected to represent, by not listening to what they have to say.

Now, he has encouraged the poor, uneducated, unemployed and those who have illegally entered this country to ban together and protest the legality of the new Arizona Immigration Law, by misrepresenting what it says.   We now have protests and marches all over the country against Arizona and it’s citizens.  Obama seems to forget that the residents of Arizona are part of the USA also. 

He is not protecting the citizens of Arizona from drug dealers, murderers, and kidnappers, by closing the border.  He’s made no attempt to recitfy the situation by continuing to build the wall which already had funds in place to pay for it.  He has said nothing to the people who are marching asking them to go home and wait for him to work something out with Arizona, like enforcing the Federal Law already on the books.  He has done nothing to stop what may well turn into riots during the hot months of this summer, when the unemployed full of dispair, become restless.

Today, the Obama administrations Michael Posner, Assistant Secretary of State, in a meeting with the Chinese, brought up the problem of illegal Immigration in Arizona, and the new Arizona Immigration Law.  Actually apologizing for America’s Human Rights failures as though China is on equal footing with the US on this issue.   What can this guy be thinking?  Just where has the “common sense” gone??? 

I believe a good education, where one is taught how to analyze the facts before making a descision  is imperative in possessing common sense.  By law most Americans have had an opportunity to get a good education.  Sure, some have not had it as good as others, but the basics have been taught in, I would think, all American public schools.  Students have been taught  that one plus one equals two.  It’s a fact.  We have been taught to look at the facts and come up with the proper solution. One plus one is always and will always be two.  

So, why, is it that this ability to add the facts up properly doesn’t extend to other problems in life?  It certainly should.  It’s at that point, when we aren’t talking about math that a problem and how to add up the facts and come up with the same answers, or the right or common sense answers gets slightly confusing.  Why is that?  Could it be because so many other factors enter into the picture?  For instance if the facts include lies, then how can you add them up and come up with the right answer or the same answer that someone else comes up with?

In the real world we have people coming from all sorts of backgrounds, educational opportunities, life styles, and upbringing, which all enters into how we look at the same facts but come up with different answers.  When lies, or false-hoods become a factor, when people cheat, or hide the truth, or when they don’t follow the rules or break the law then you can not expect to come up with a common sense answer to any problem which presents itself, much less agree on with others, what the answer is and common sense “will” bear that out.

I know this may sound confusing, but bear with me here.  Politicians have a way of either speaking the truth as it is, or speaking “a” truth as to how they want those listening to them, perceive it to be.  Politicians have gotten so good at spinning the truth that no one can actually tell what the “truth” is any longer.  This is where common sense “Must” come in, if we are to survive. 

It is up to each American to take the time, to read about the problems we as a Nation face.  Each of us, by any and all means, which includes TV, Radio, Papers, Speeches, Tea Party Rallies, or by whatever means are available, “Must” gather all the facts about what is going on in our country and then make a common sense decision as to what action needs to be taken and how we must move forward.  I have tried to do this and have come up with facts that I deem to be true which have helped me make some “Common Sense” decisions as to my part in reacting to the “Change” in America, which has been forced upon us by our elected officials in Washington DC.  

It’s not a pretty picture, I must say.  History tells me that it’s my “Duty” to participate and to come up with my interpretation of the facts, based on common sense.  It is my responsibility to decide for myself what is going on in DC and how it will affect my fellow Americans and me, and then I can act on this decision appropriately. 

So, it up to everyone to get involved, we cannot leave it up to the present elected officials in DC, to correct the wrongs that have been done, because they are the culprits.

We need new and honest representatives in Washington, men of character (not characters), men of honor to lead the American people out of the darkness and into the light once more.  We can do this starting with the primaries and work our way up the ladder to the mid-term elections. 

As our President said, The party who believes that in this democracy, influence and access should begin and end with the power of the ballot”.  Barak Obama, August 28, 2008

 Finally he and I can agree on something.  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

Arizona’s New Immigration Law, Good or Bad?

May 1, 2010

I have been thinking about the new Immigration Law in Arizona and how people are reacting to it.  It’s not pretty.

You may have heard the saying, which is often, used in movies, where one of the characters will say to another, “I’ll have my people call your people”.  Well I think that is just what happened last Friday, April 24, 2010.  I think Obama’s people called the Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer’s people to find out whether or not she was going to announce the signing of the new Arizona Immigration Bill.  We can pretty much guess what they were told, because just hours before Governor Brewer’s scheduled News Conference, when she was to announce her decision, President Obama made a preemptive move.  He announced his displeasure with the Governor. 

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”. 

 In my opinion, he as well as admitted that the Federal Government has not done it’s job to protect the citizens of this country and the citizens of Arizona in particular, something that I, as an American, find very irresponsible on the Governments behalf.  Still he calls the Arizona Governor irresponsible.  I don’t think that Governor Brewer has acted irresponsible at all.  She is doing what she has been elected to do, and is paid to do, and that is to protect the citizens of Arizona.  You would think that after 911, the Southern border would be locked up.   

Obama has ignored the fact that Phoenix, Arizona has become the 2nd worst city in the world for Kidnappings.  Yes, that’s right 2nd worst in the World and it has become America’s Kidnapping capital.  Yet he neglected to bring this to the attention of the Americans he was speaking to when he chose to blame Governor Brewer for doing her job, and implying that this Bill she signed into Law was a racist, law, when all she’s doing is trying to stop crime in her state. 

Obama said he instructed the Justice Department to examine the civil rights and other implications” of the new law.  This statement really angered me.  Mr. Obama should have said, “I have asked the Justice Department to look into why the Federal Immigration Laws already on the books have not been enforced”.  He should have told them to start enforcing them immediately, to keep Americans safe from the Illegals who are climbing walls, digging tunnels, transporting drugs or just coming to American to take our jobs.

For the President of the United States to say that the Governor of Arizona is threatening, “to undermine a basic notion of fairness that we cherish as Americans” is ridiculous when he and Congress are more concerned with being fair to Illegal Immigrants, who entered this country illegally than to the citizens who pay their salaries.

We have Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Home Land Security, when asked by Congressman Lindsey Graham the other day, if the Arizona/Mexican border was secure now, replying with, “that’s an unfair question”.  My God, what planet did she come from?  Does this woman even know what her job consists of? 

We have Al Sharpton, saying he’s bringing in outsiders to march in Arizona,  for the Civil Rights of the Immigrants, and Americans of Hispanic descent.  I ask myself, “Why are these people making a genuine effort to divide the people of this country, instead of leading them to a place where they can work together?

I know I’m just an ordinary, Patriotic American, who loves the Freedom she has, and thank God, I’m still allowed to think for myself, because I really see something wrong with this picture, and can’t believe that anyone who looks at what is going on, with an open mind, doesn’t see it too.  

Obama gave as an example on how the law will work, saying; if parents of Hispanic descent decided to take their child out for an ice cream they could be stopped and asked to show their American ID (citizenship papers) and this would be a direct result of Racial profiling.

As I understand the law, people cannot be stopped and asked to prove American citizenship unless there is a suspicion that they have committed a crime, or they get caught in the act, like robbing a store, or stealing a car, or committing any number of crimes.  By the way, when anyone in this country is suspected of committing a crime or has just run a red light, they are stopped and asked for their ID, so this is nothing new.  The law, and the Governor specifically stated that there is to be no racial profiling.

 Let’s say someone of Hispanic descent came to this country through legal channels, applied for citizenship and became a citizen.  He may have had to wait for years before he was allowed to come to the USA, he may have had to do a number of things to be eligible to become a citizen of the USA.  He is more likely than not, happy he is here.  He is now an American citizen.  He should be glad that he lives in a state where the Governor is taking his safety seriously.   His safety and security is now one of the privileges he has as an American Citizen of Hispanic descent.

He should also be directing his anger not towards Governor Brewer but towards those illegals that come into our (his country now, too) everyday.  It is because of them that he may be asked to show his Citizenship papers.   It is because the Illegals committed a CRIME, by coming into the USA, illegally, he may someday be asked to show his proof of citizenship.  It is still a Crime to enter the USA illegally, and it’s time he realizes that the laws are to protect him tooIt’s time for him to act like an American.

Mr. Sharpton if he had any common sense at all, should, if he really wants and needs the press coverage, bring his people to DC and march there.  Why you ask?  Because the Federal Immigration Laws are already on the books, but have not been enforced.  If the Congress or the White House had enforced them, there would have been no need to pass the Arizona Bill.  If Al Sharpton is interested in justice, and not just getting his name and picture on the news, then he needs to go to DC to march on the Capital.

So, here’s the deal, as I see it.  The Arizona Immigration Bill was signed into Law because the Federal Government, again, is not doing its job.  President  Obama readily admits that the Feds have been irresponsible in not doing anything about the Laws already on the books, and he intends to continue down that path.  He down played the seriousness of the situation, (the Kidnapping Capitol of America) but, he has, with carefully chosen words, made race an issue where it was not.  He has started, what I believe will be a long hot summer, filled with Protests and Civil Rights marches.  

All week long I have thought about what he has said and done about this new Law, and all I can think of is Protests and Civil Rights marches, will be used as his new reason to coerce Congress into writing a new Immigration Bill and then pass it fast.  They won’t need to read it, but just vote for it (as usual), before the mid-term election.   And if things get out of hand this summer, well then Obama can impose Marshall Law, with the New National Police force that I have heard about.   Is there one?  I don’t know.  But I have heard about one.  I guess we will have to wait and see.

No one can ever say Americans are a dull people.  Stupid, maybe, but dull?  Definitely not! 

Well these are my thoughts on the subject, but, hey, who am I, but just an ordinary still, free, American.  ss
