Silent Running - Mike + the Mechanics Take the children and yourself And hide out in the cellar By now the fighting will be close at hand Don't believe the church and state And everything they tell you Believe in me, I'm with the high command Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? There's a gun and ammunition Just inside the doorway Use it only in emergency Better you should pray to God The Father and the Spirit Will guide you and protect from up here Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Swear allegiance to the flag Whatever flag they offer Never hint at what you really feel Teach the children quietly For some day sons and daughters Will rise up and fight while we stood still Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Random rants and food for thought
Thursday, May 24, 2007 11:43 PM
I have a very mundane job at the moment, to some it has importance and may actually help in some way, but as a's a job....contract at that. So during the course of part of it today, I had thoughts cross my mind I just have to share with you, dear reader who out of shear desperation of finding nothing else better, reads my blog. I know, the paint is drying and you can't escape the room, that's okay with me. Company's and CEO's......have you noticed that today's market place is constantly revolving employees more than their product itself? Why is that? Why is retention so difficult these days?? If you take a notice, the retention is always in the 'workforce', never in the 'administrative' side. Wonder why....I don't. CEO's today are either way out of touch with their workforce or find a perverse pleasure in turning the screws on their workers to 'make profit'. Dilbert management I surmise. If you did like me, grew up in the 80's, ever wonder why you could chill out so easily and have time to relax? Think about it, all you basically had was cable TV,video rentals, the movie theater, concert, real Music Television Videos, and radio or your stereo. In 2007, you have cable TV with up to 500 channels, your stereo, your IPod, your Computer, Blackberry, Cell-phone-camera-TV-IPod all in one, video on demand, still rentals thank at least two jobs and/or two jobs and school. Where do you relax these days and how??? What can you just turn off and do without??? Me, I"ve pretty much given up on movies, but need to change that and give up on TV....most shows suck anyway these days or the writers kill the show off due to lack of creativity...24...BSG. What about all those electronic records and means of communication we DEPEND upon these days. Ever catch an episode of Jericho?? With all that we put into our insurance and health records just to name the two biggies, how everything is electronically done....what is going to happen when we get nailed by an EMP?? (Google or Dogpile EMP and learn). Our entire system is going to collaspe the way things are set up now. And all the meaningless minutia about this document goes here, this agency says this is the way this or that is done in this order, even legal records can be lumped into this mess of insurance and health. Turn off the electricity and it's all meaningless. Get hit with a real disaster, hurricane, fire, tornado, terrorist attack......and all those rules and regulations regarding administration just go right out the window in the face of survival. So why not do away with all the meaningless ways of doing business and build systems, means, and ways that will not fall easy victim to disaster. Oh, I know why....lawyers and big business, thrive on the meaningless these days. No longer the good of the Nation and of the People, it's the promotion and good of oneself over everyone else. If you read my blog, you notice I'm not fond of Islam. More and more I believe with every day that this, like any form of strict segregation and discrimination by force, is an evil that free people must resist. I heard a song a couple weeks ago and it is more relevent today than it was in the 80's. For today there exist the growing threat of Islamic dominance over the World and those (Socialist, Democrats, Liberals) who ally themselves with and deny that Islam is today's biggest threat to peace. Silent Running - Mike + the Mechanics Take the children and yourself And hide out in the cellar By now the fighting will be close at hand Don't believe the church and state And everything they tell you Believe in me, I'm with the high command Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? There's a gun and ammunition Just inside the doorway Use it only in emergency Better you should pray to God The Father and the Spirit Will guide you and protect from up here Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me, can you hear me running? Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Conspiracy,Syndicated radio, Third World USA..nine and counting
Thursday, May 24, 2007 10:58 PM
A few days ago after work, I channel scanned into Sean Hannity, who I have listened to and do thank for all he does for the U.S. Military. But that day, he cut off two callers in a row who were linking illegal immigration and the North American Union movement. I thought this was him being more of an RNC spokesman than talk show host. Most talk show host will cut off any caller real quick if they start sounding conspiritorial, Sean will mock them for a bit. But all host have done this to a degree, which makes me wonder why After Dark/CoasttoCoast have survived for so long and gained in popularity and have had a huge list of legitmate guest???!!! Now today, WND is bringing to the light the truth: PREMEDITATED MERGER North American union plan headed to Congress in fall Powerful think tank prepares report on benefits of integration between U.S., Mexico, Canada Look at the names behind this: A powerful think tank chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is in the final stages of preparing a report to the White House and U.S. Congress on the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one political, economic and security bloc. Now this integration will have one purpose, power for the few over the many. Mark my of the very first casualties to this merger will be July 4th, American Independence Day celebration and observation. Since the United States will lose it's soverignty under this bill as a Nation unto itself, there in truth, will be no reason to observe July 4th as American Independence. It will become a footnote in the new history books of the World Socialist movement governed by therse 'elite' few. One security 'bloc'. Take three independent Nations and mege them into ONE!!! That's what this is all about, nothing more and definitely nothing less. But in the end, it will not work as the millions of those who are outside the United States flood into the land mass that is the United States and begin taking what they now feel is theirs. The North American continent will resemble Yugoslavia, Lebennon, and Iraq as factions begin fighting for their own automony and outright survival. Tell me I"m wrong...I dare you. Tell me this will not happen...I dare you. Tell me that by invading Iraq and removing Saddam, the Iraqi's will flood the streets with joy and set up a 'democratic' based government and make life sweet for all of them. Tell me in 1970, that those junkie Japanese autos will never amount to anything. Tell me that media uncontrolled will have no ill effects on our youth because parents control what kids see and hear. I tell you, this NAU will be the second nail in the coffin of the United States.

Do you 'loath' the military, do you protest the military on your campus, do you do nothing but abuse the military for your own political gain? Then check this website out and look into their eyes and read a brief description of these great people. People who to me, that stand far far above most in this Nation. Memorial Day wil be upon us this weekend, and remembrance for those from the American Revolution to the Iraq War who gave the ulitmate sacrifice so you can sit on your fat arse and whine and do nothing about the growing threats of illegal immigration and Islamic terrorist. For those of you who do 'get it', click and paste this website into an email and send it to as many as you can as well as your politicians. Make them all look into the eyes of the fallen.

Ah we go again
Tuesday, May 22, 2007 10:47 PM
I"m throwing this in the Culture of Life section since while it talks of religion, it is in reality, a 'way of life and culture'. One that has and will gravely affect the way of life in the United States. This poll report says more than it displays: Click that link to read the whole article, I"m just going to take a few bits and pieces and comment.
WASHINGTON (AP) - One in four younger U.S. Muslims say suicide bombings to defend their religion are acceptable at least in some circumstances, though most Muslim Americans overwhelmingly reject the tactic and are critical of Islamic extremism and al-Qaida, a poll says So if these one in four young U.S. MUSLIMS decide that their religion is under attack, expect your local Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Macy's, to have someone walk in with a backpack or very loose clothing and terror seen only on our TV's, happen here...courtesy not from Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddist, Atheist, Wiccans.....but Muslims.
Even so, U.S. Muslims are far less accepting of suicide attacks than Muslims in many other nations. In surveys Pew conducted last year, support in some Muslim countries exceeded 50 percent, while it was considered justifiable by about one in four Muslims in Britain and Spain, and one in three in France. If the current trend of illegal immigration continues unabated by our lack-luster political leaders in D.C., the U.S. will have that one in four grow to five in ten. That statistic in Europe is a sad foreboding warning of religious/civil war in the E.U.
In other findings:
_Only 5 percent of U.S. Muslims expressed favorable views of the terrorist group al-Qaida, though about a fourth did not express an opinion.
This is I found startling....ONE FOURTH did not express an opinion, which means to me, they are more likely to support Al Qaida killing European American Caucasions and any Christian or Jew or none Muslim, than they would say anything to authorities to stop such an attack._Six in 10 said they are concerned about a rise in Islamic extremism in the U.S., while three in four expressed similar worries about extremism around the world.
_Yet only one in four consider the U.S. war on terrorism a sincere attempt to curtail international terror. Only 40 percent said they believe Arab men carried out the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Only 40 percent....???? Put the facts in their faces and they still deny that fact that it was Saudi Arab MUSLIMS that committed the greatest murder spree in U.S. history. It's a tenent of Islam to deny facts in face of any 'infidel' for the sake of Islam to further Islam and the ulitmate goal of subjugating none-muslims.
_By six to one, they say the U.S. was wrong to invade Iraq, while a third say the same about Afghanistan—far deeper than the opposition expressed by the general U.S. public.
_Just over half said it has been harder being a U.S. Muslim since the 9/11 attacks, especially the better educated, higher income, more religious and young. Nearly a third of those who flew in the past year say they underwent extra screening because they are Muslim.
Wha, wha, wha......more senior citizen bred, born, and raised Americans have gone through more screenings than any muslim thanks to FEAR from our politicians to do the right thing. Fox News is reporting this poll tonight and shock shock, O'Rielly is supposed to be talking about it tomorrow. I'm sure there will be a 'spin' favorable to Islam after a call from D.C. to the O'R Show will be made between now and tomorrow night....talking points!! A Nation can not stand united without a common border, a common language, and a common culture. Yugoslavia is the best most recent and proven fact of this and it is what WILL happen here within the next thirty years under the current course of action and in-action by our politicians and American population. Sometimes the right course of action is not the most popular in order to achieve the goal that will benefit the greater good.

ABC News - Treason Central
Tuesday, May 22, 2007 10:18 PM
The blazing headline says it all " Bush Authorizes New Covert Action Against Iran "May 22, 2007 6:29 PM Brian Ross and Richard Esposito Report: . The key word here folks is 'covert', which means no one is supposed to know outside of the operational personnel. "The CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government, current and former officials in the intelligence community tell the Blotter on" But some traitor within the Pentagon, White House, or Congress 'leaked' the story to ABC who being the pro-Hillary-Socialist lap dog organization, thought it would be fun to tell our enemies that U.S. Military and Civilian perssonnel will be in their neighborhood and get ready for them to kill them. The United States will not stand a chance of survival if/when we have to fight a World War again with the likes of ABC ready to tell our enemies our every move. ABC -Arnold, Benedict Central, Always Bill Clinton, Americans Bought by China. So much for 'journalistic integrity'.

Bubonic Plague in Denver
Monday, May 21, 2007 11:40 PM
Hush, hush, we don't want to alarm anyone that one of the World's most deadly plagues just happened to show up in 'DENVER, COLORADO.!!!!!!!! Has the mainstream media been on this story/?? Nope... that hard 'spike' from D.C. is landing hard on the 'Exec's' in TV News land. Wouldn't want to say due to such lax immigration and law enforcemnet inside the United States against non-Amreicans....all you old American Woman and children line up while TSA screens you for carrying a nail clipper. Yeah, it's just an anomally that BUBONIC PLAGUE shows up in Denver!!!! Monkey dead from bubonic plague in Denver Mon May 21, 2007 8:58PM EDT DENVER (Reuters) - A Denver Zoo monkey has died of bubonic plague, apparently after eating a squirrel stricken with the disease, Colorado health and zoo officials said on Monday. Five squirrels and a rabbit found dead on zoo grounds tested positive for the flea-borne disease in recent weeks, Denver Zoo spokeswoman Ana Bowie said. Zookeepers on May 15 noticed the 8-year-old hooded capuchin monkey was lethargic, and the next day it was found dead in its enclosure. Zoo veterinarians sent tissue samples to a state laboratory where it was determined the animal died of the plague. The death was announced on Monday. Zoo veterinarian Dave Kenny said that the risk of plague spreading to humans was extremely low but that visitors were being urged to avoid squirrels and rabbits. "There are species in the zoo collection, especially monkeys, that could be susceptible to the plague," said John Pape, an epidemiologist with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Bowie said none of the 17 other capuchin monkeys in the exhibit -- or any other animals at the zoo -- have shown plague symptoms. But as a precaution, all the capuchin monkeys have been moved to an inside enclosure and are being treated with a regimen of antibiotics, she said. Don't fret, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Rielly will do the same to this story as they've done with the Immigration Bill......toe the 'Party line' and say everything is okay. Everyone is just jumping to conclusions. I mean, c'mon, Bubonic Plague in Denver, Colorado???!!! Phaaleeezzz. The Black Death: Bubonic Plague In the early 1330s an outbreak of deadly bubonic plague occurred in China. The bubonic plague mainly affects rodents, but fleas can transmit the disease to people. Once people are infected, they infect others very rapidly. Plague causes fever and a painful swelling of the lymph glands called buboes, which is how it gets its name. The disease also causes spots on the skin that are red at first and then turn black. Since China was one of the busiest of the world's trading nations, it was only a matter of time before the outbreak of plague in China spread to western Asia and Europe. In October of 1347, several Italian merchant ships returned from a trip to the Black Sea, one of the key links in trade with China. When the ships docked in Sicily, many of those on board were already dying of plague. Within days the disease spread to the city and the surrounding countryside. An eyewitness tells what happened: "Realizing what a deadly disaster had come to them, the people quickly drove the Italians from their city. But the disease remained, and soon death was everywhere. Fathers abandoned their sick sons. Lawyers refused to come and make out wills for the dying. Friars and nuns were left to care for the sick, and monasteries and convents were soon deserted, as they were stricken, too. Bodies were left in empty houses, and there was no one to give them a Christian burial." The disease struck and killed people with terrible speed. The Italian writer Boccaccio said its victims often "ate lunch with their friends and dinner with their ancestors in paradise." By the following August, the plague had spread as far north as England, where people called it "The Black Death" because of the black spots it produced on the skin. A terrible killer was loose across Europe, and Medieval medicine had nothing to combat it. In winter the disease seemed to disappear, but only because fleas--which were now helping to carry it from person to person--are dormant then. Each spring, the plague attacked again, killing new victims. After five years 25 million people were dead--one-third of Europe's people. Even when the worst was over, smaller outbreaks continued, not just for years, but for centuries. The survivors lived in constant fear of the plague's return, and the disease did not disappear until the 1600s. Medieval society never recovered from the results of the plague. So many people had died that there were serious labor shortages all over Europe. This led workers to demand higher wages, but landlords refused those demands. By the end of the 1300s peasant revolts broke out in England, France, Belgium and Italy. The disease took its toll on the church as well. People throughout Christendom had prayed devoutly for deliverance from the plague. Why hadn't those prayers been answered? A new period of political turmoil and philosophical questioning lay ahead.

Outside the box on the Imm-Bill
Monday, May 21, 2007 11:27 PM
I was thinking a bit today about this Immigration Bill that was done in secrecy, in the shadows, out of the public eye. I was thinking what if, I was one of the bad guys. How would I look at the United States? All the U.S. Government has done is talk talk talk, put up a few miles of fence, run a bunch of dog and pony shows for the media. But nothing concrete. Nothing to seriously address the issue and fact that there are at least, 12 Million illegal aliens living inside the United States. Where at least, 98% of those illegals came across the Mexican Border into the United States. As a bad guy, I'm not going to worry. The 'police' in the United States are not allowed to ask if you're an illegal alien, or to ask for any kind of identification. The citizens of the U.S. have been the most active participants against the illegal alien invasion, but it's been piece meal at best, with their Minuteman Milita groups of old people sitting along the border at various sites. But as a bad guy, I just use the internet and find out where they are at. It's been pretty easy being a bad guy. Sneaking in, actually, just walking into the U.S., then disappearing into a big or small city, smile and say ola to everyone. It has suited me and my jihadist friends just fine. With 12 Million and thousands more coming across every day and all the politicians in Washington can do is talk and talk and try their hardrst not to 'offend' anyone. It's been great. We're just having a good time, taking jobs that your born and raised sons should have, getting a few of your daughters pregnant too has been a big plus and not worrying about raising the infidel spawn, who may someday, grow up and become like his father. Yep, sitting on the outside, one does not have to worry one bit about being an illegal inside the United States, the 'Greatest' Generation is about all dead now. Their children are spineless, their grandchildren are spoiled, and great grandchildren are morally and socially inept and lost and will be easy pickings. Not too much longer now and the time will come. Thank you Washington politicians for being so indecisive and split, thank you Americans for lacking courage, actually thank you for caring more about Paris Hilton and American Idol than your own country. We'll take care of it from here on once we taken care of you. If I was a bad guy on the outside looking in, this is what I would think. Fortunately, I'm one of the good guys on the millions of our Fore Fathers...waiting to see the 'whites of your eyes'. We know we can not count on our politicians. We know, it is our time to take care of our Country, once again.

What the insane Immigration Bill will do to the USA
Saturday, May 19, 2007 11:44 PM
Allow the 12 MILLION mainly Mexicans into the USA gratis by having broken one major law already and what took place in Mexico WILL happen here in the USA. President Reagan tried 'amnesty' for 5 million. That opened the door for 12 Million that President Bush is about to grant amnesty to. Next it will be 20 million as no one outside the USA will respect any sense of legal immigration. Let this group of 12 million break the law, and these stories happening now in Mexico will begin happening here.Associated Press Updated: Sat. May. 19 2007 1:47 PM ET ARIZPE, Mexico — Assailants shot dead a police commander in a wealthy Monterrey suburb on Saturday, the latest in a wave of killings of law enforcement officials across Mexico. Mario Sanchez, 47, was killed by gunmen wielding automatic rifles after he finished a night shift in San Nicolas de los Garza, one of Mexico's most affluent municipalities, Mexican media reported. Police in Monterrey did not answer calls seeking to confirm the killing. Gunmen linked to drug-trafficking gangs have been increasingly targeting police and soldiers as President Felipe Calderon wages a national offensive against drug cartels, who make billions of dollars smuggling cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin into the United States. On Wednesday, a group of about 50 armed men drove into the town of Cananea, near the Sonora border, and killed five policemen and two residents. The assailants then fled to the hills pursued by police and soldiers and sixteen assailants were killed in the ensuing gunbattles. Sonora Gov. Eduardo Bours said authorities have received information that the assault in Cananea was "some kind of retaliation by the hit men for their betrayal by local police, implying that they had had some kind of deal." Mexican officers often face the choice of "plomo o plata," or "silver or bullets," meaning they can either take bribes to allow traffickers to operate or risk retaliation. Drug cartels place special emphasis on killing officials who break such deals. Meanwhile, the leader of a state investigative police team was shot and died Friday in Hermosillo, the Sonora state capital about 321 kilometres south of Cananea. Hours later, gunmen also killed the chief of criminal investigations in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco, Raul Lopez Lopez. Friday, May 18, 2007 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SOUTH OF THE BORDER Mexican bloodbath raises fears in U.S. Arizona towns alarmed by rise in attacks, rumor convoy headed north -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: May 18, 2007 7:37 p.m. Eastern -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2007 A bloodbath just south of the Mexican border has alarmed neighboring Arizona towns that have nervously monitored a rise in violence in the Mexican state of Sonora the past two months. Mexican police killed 15 armed assailants in a fierce gun battle Wednesday after tracking a group that killed four policemen, leading to fears this morning that an armed outlaw convoy was headed to the U.S. border. About 40 assailants apparently related to Mexico's powerful drug gangs, drove in a convoy of up to 15 vehicles into the town of Cananea, 20 miles south of the U.S. border, to seize the policemen Wednesday. Mexican state police confronted the gunmen in the mountains 60 miles south of Cananea and reportedly killed 15 of the gunmen. (Story continues below) Today, meanwhile, rumors spread to Naco, Ariz., that its sister city of Naco, Sonora, was threatened with a possible imminent attack from outlaw gunmen who were headed their way. The Mexican town reportedly closed schools, businesses and city hall. Jesus Rodriguez, spokesman for the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector told WND the report turned out to be "bogus." He said border agents have been informed of the attacks in Mexico but have not been under any special orders or heightened alert. Brian Levin, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, said officers at the Naco, Ariz., port of entry are aware of the situation, but the border is open and operating normally. There also were reports of a second narco hit squad entering the town of Cuitaca, 10 miles west of Cananea, the Sierra Vista paper said. Local radio stations issued an advisory from city officials to remain at home, according to the Mexican paper El Imparcial. Officials in the border town of Nogales, Ariz., say they want to see measures taken to ensure the violence does not migrate across the border, reported. "We are monitoring the situation very closely," Mayor Ignacio J. Barraza said yesterday. "I have asked that the Nogales Police Department prepare a briefing of what has transpired in the last few hours and over the past month." City officials in Agua Prieta, Mexico – which borders Douglas, Ariz. – were on very high alert, surrounded by police and soldiers, Douglas Mayor Ray Borane told the Herald. Borane said his officials also were taking a similar cautious attitude. After news of the Cananea incident, Borane traveled immediately to Agua Prieta for a briefing from Agua Prieta Mayor Antonia Cuadras, who later traveled to Douglas for a meeting at Borane's office. Borane said he plans to ask for help from the state of Arizona "to provide additional funding for local law enforcement needs." In Cananea Wednesday, the bullet-riddled bodies of the four policemen were found on the side of a road, along with 50 spent cartridges, hours after they were seized. A total of five policemen were killed, said Sonora state Gov. Eduardo Bours, but he did not specify how the fifth officer died. Another incident took place Wednesday in the Sonora state capital Hermosillo, where unidentified assailants tossed a hand grenade from a passing car at the offices of the newspaper Cambio, causing minor damage. Gov: Attack Was Revenge by Drug Cartel for Police Betrayal May 19th, 2007 @ 7:38am by Associated Press A commando of drug hitmen who overran a town near the Arizona border in an attack that left 23 people dead were apparently taking revenge on police officers for betraying an agreement, the state governor said Friday. Sonora Gov. Eduardo Bours said authorities have received information that the assault in Cananea was ``some kind of retaliation by the hit men for their betrayal by local police, implying that they had had some kind of deal.'' Mexican officers often face the choice of ``plomo o plata,'' or ``silver or bullets,'' meaning they can either take bribes to allow traffickers to operate or risk retaliation. Drug cartels place special emphasis on killing officials who break such deals. Meanwhile, the terror generated by the attack was palpable Friday, as residents panicked over reports of another possible assault, authorities declared a curfew and drivers raced through the streets, causing several accidents. Though the reports proved unfounded, the city's mayor said 15 policemen have resigned since the attack. About 50 assailants, pursued by police and army troops after Wednesday's assault, fled to the hills, ditched their vehicles, commandeered horses and forced ranch hands to serve as guides, according to an account from a man abducted by the armed gang. Sixteen assailants were killed in the ensuing gunbattles in the rugged desert mountains outside Arizpe, 60 miles south of the U.S. border. One man who was kidnapped said Friday that his captors identified themselves as ``Gulf people,'' an apparent reference to the Gulf drug cartel. He said they carved a ``Z'' on his back with a knife, referring to cartel's hit men who are known as ``Zetas,'' and demanded money. The businessman, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisal, escaped when police began to pursue the gang. On Friday, Mexican army troops found a body in the search for members of the drug cartel assault force, which kidnapped and killed five policemen and two Cananea residents. Authorities say they have arrested four suspects. Mexico is struggling to tame drug gangs responsible for a recent spate of executions, and has sent thousands of police and army troops to several states. Mexican Federal Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna said Thursday that drug gangs are relying on a flow of arms from the United States, including assault rifles, machine guns and hand grenades. Meanwhile, the leader of a state investigative police team was shot and died Friday in Hermosillo, the Sonora state capital about 200 miles south of Cananea. Jose Larrinaga, a spokesman for the state attorney general, said there was no information connecting the killing with the violence in Cananea and Arizpe. Hours later, gunmen also killed the chief of criminal investigations in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco, Raul Lopez Lopez. Pass this bill that the foolish in the Senate and White House want to pass, pass that bill and it will usher in the start of drug gang wars and public offical corruption that will break this country at it's core. The time is now for real Americans to take a stand, to rise up and be the true Patriots that our Fore Fathers were. The Torries of Washington today have only but one thing on their agenda, personal power and lust of money. They care not of the United States, but of only themselves. This immigration asylum bill is fit only to benefit the 'New Torries' of the United States, and they are the ones who have drafted and support this bill. Only a very firm and immediate hard line stance and course of actions can save the future of the USA from the open warfare that plagues the Middle East, Africa, and Mexico. True Americans, true Patriots, stand now for the future of America is in your hands at this moment.

Third World USA...10 and counting
Thursday, May 17, 2007 11:14 PM
The Supreme Senate and the Bush misAdministraton did the following:
In a striking reach across party lines, the White House and key lawmakers agreed Thursday on a sweeping immigration plan to grant legal status to millions of people in the country unlawfully.
Sealed after months of secretive bargaining, the deal mandates bolstered border security and a high-tech employment verification system to prevent illegal workers from getting jobs.
President Bush said the proposal would "help enforce our borders but equally importantly, it'll treat people with respect." I want you to note a key phrase "secretive bargaining", which means this was done without consultation with Constiuients i.e. the American People, having any knowledge of this. This is not like nuclear technology and military deployments, this concerns our very country and who and how people are allowed in. You know Mr. President, what would help enforce our borders......all the troops that are from Fort Hood that are overseas playing referee in a Iraqi muslim civil war. Part of a military members oath is to protect the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Part of that protection means physical protection that extends way beyond the guarded walls of the National Archive building. Who is being treated with respect?? The illegal aliens who broke the laws of the United States or the American people????? Sure is not me, a bred, born, raised retired military American. Sure is not my wife, who went through the entire (then INS process over a three year, cost of $3000.00) process, and a FUBAR process it was. So, it's not respecting those born and rasied, nor those who came here legally, nope, it's respecting the illegal and primarily Latin American people who broke the laws of my country and are on a daily basis, ursurping U.S. tax dollars and JOBS that Americans would do if they were not undercut by low wages and a welfare system that has created a society of apethetic lazy bums (skin color does not apply).
Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record), R-Ariz., who led the charge last year to push through an immigration overhaul, called the deal "the first step" and urged moving it forward before the politics of 2008 made such action impossible.
"We all know that this issue can be caught up in extracurricular politics unless we move forward as quickly as possible," said McCain, who is seeking the GOP nomination for president.
Seems those 'politicians' who live along the border with Mexico are the most to give up on enforcing existing laws and getting tough on illegal aliens. Fear of the Mexican. Tu quiere guerra con Los Estados Unidos...trajaylo. The ghost of the Army of the Confederacy is about to ride again, to fight again to save State's rigths, to fight again to preserve the dreams, vision, and way of life set forth by the Founding Fathers, to save a Nation from an invading force. But this time, the Confederacy will not be just made up of 'Southern' States, it will expand the entire breadth of the Nation as real Americans each day, become more and more disolussioned with the politicans in Washington D.C.
A Vote of No Confidence

More than half of Americans—56 percent—say they're not proud of the country's leaders. Two thirds and more say the country is in a leadership crisis. Nearly three quarters say the nation will decline without better leadership.

Congress Approval at 12-Year Low
Rating slipped four percentage points since March
by Lydia Saad
Public approval of the job Congress is doing has dipped to its lowest level of 2006, and is now the worst Gallup has recorded since the closing days of the Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994. The current approval rating for Congress is a near-record low according to Gallup survey trending.

They missed what Ron Paul said
Wednesday, May 16, 2007 11:07 PM
As we watched the debate in our household last night, myself, I had a better understanding of the candidates. I didn't get to hear all of the talking heads on the radio new job has me in a 'cave' to describe it best, no radio waves can penetrate the walls. So my viewpoints are of my own tonight, not skwed by voices of media. Only one I heard was a local host and some of the 'finest minds in the South' callers. I told my wife, I don't think Mr. Paul has a big chance of making it to the GOP nomination, but I would have him in my Cabinet for sure. He would definitely not be a 'yes-man' and his knowledge and experience would be a great asset in any highly charged decision. Most people missed it in what he said and why. They missed it that Ron Paul is from one of our Nation's oldest generations and that his views are based on his lifetime experiences and learning enviroments. I could understand why he is upset, I could understand what he was really trying to relate to the American people. But it seems most of the talking heads on TV and radio were just shooting from the gut of their mouths without taking the basics of human learning and lifetime experiences that form the person we are. It was a good debate, look forward to the next one. As for the Socialist..err, I mean Democrat(ic)s, one: the DNC Candidates FEAR Fox News and fear the viewing audience of Fox News and also...have NO respect and/or consideration towards the viewing audience of Fox News, otherwise they would not have run away so fast from a televised debate on Fox News. Secondly: all of the DNC candidates might as well just quit now and not waste anymore time and money on running a campaign. Hillary is the coronated queen that is supported by ABC, NBC(MSNBC), CBS, CNN, and the rest of the mainstream media on TV, radio, and print. The rest of the DNC candidates don't have a chance of any real support or coverage from the 'drive-by' media.

CBS's Jericho's and the Surge's reality
Saturday, May 12, 2007 10:46 PM
I've watched the CBS's series 'Jericho' the past two seasons, and much of what the writers had done with the show are fairly accurate as to what will happen to the United States if and when we get hit hard by an attack. I don't see the 'town' against 'town' wars as much as many roving gangs of murderous opportunist. Seems someone, though Clinton camp people, are taking things serious enough to start at least doing some serious discussion: concerns grow that terrorists might attack a major American city with a nuclear bomb, a high-level group of government and military officials has been quietly preparing an emergency survival program that would include the building of bomb shelters, steps to prevent panicked evacuations and the possible suspension of some civil liberties. As we witnessed with hurricane Katrina, in the year 2007, after the sneak attack of December 7th, 1941 that brought us into World War Two, after the sneak attack of the hijackings and monsterous murderous actions of the MUSLIM group Al Qaeda, the succeeding Presidents and Congress all, have failed to truely act and initiate legislature and resources to be truely prepared. All succeeding Presidents and Congress were too busy with their own personal power trips to act together as a Nation and ensure America and Americans were prepared and ready for any kind of catrastrophe be it man or nature. President Reagan was the only President who acted in a pro-active manner while battling a self absorbed Democrat majority that led Congress the whole time. A thought to you. I've been watching the 'Lord of the Rings' movie trilogy the past few weekends, catching bits and pieces, mostly watching the battle scenes which are/have been Oscar material rightly so....but as I watch, I see today's history unvieling. I see the dark armies of Mordor, made up of murderous hideous orcs, monsterous creatures, men of black hearts and minds, fighting against armies of men, elves, dwarfs. The similarity between them to me represents modern day Islam of the Middle East and the Europe/America and the rest of the non-Islamic World. J.R. Tolkein was way ahead of his time in thought, maybe he was prophetic in his words in which he foresaw the dangers of Islam. This now is my segway into 'the Surge'. I heard on the news and read tonight of now 3 missing U.S. soldiers in Iraq, along with their 'interpeter'. This news has made me sick and angry. How FRACKING STUPID could our leadership be????!!!! Start at the top and go down to the 'Stars' for they are the ones in charge. "We'll put small detachments of soldiers alongside the Iraqis and they'll stop all of the violent attacks in Baghdad'. Our leadership has done the classic blunder of falling into the divide and conquer role. Divide our forces and be conquered.
On June 16, 2006, two American soldiers -- Pfc. Kristian Menchaca of Houston and Pfc. Thomas Tucker of Madras, Ore. -- went missing after their Humvee was ambushed at a checkpoint near Youssifiyah, north of Mahmoudiya.
Their bodies were found days later, tied together with a bomb between one of the victim's legs. But the remains were not recovered until the next morning, after an Iraqi civilian warned that bombs had been planted in the area. One would think that someone would have learned from that horrible lesson. They did, we didn't obviously and sadly. I supported the war initially, amid all of the CIA's reports that Saddam had a growing stockpile of WMD's and all of the World's various intel agencies reporting the same thing. Saddam's refusal to abide by the UN resolutions 17 times. Anything about Iran had better be 'fool proof'!!! After four years of a war that has turned more civil than insurgency, it's time to step back and let the inevitable happen unless America is prepared to send hundreds of thousands of Americans into Iraq to seperate all of the combatants, which means a draft of Americans. Pull out and let the vaccums of power be filled by the victor, and if the victor is Al Qaeda and a Talibanish rule is set up, at least we know where they are so we can 'purposefully' bomb the entire area. Their children or ours...choose. In the end, there is no grey area, no middle ground, no compromise, no happy ending written by Hollywood. It's war, their only victors and the defeated, which in it's archaic way, brings peace.....Shogun Tokugawa finally brought over two hundred years of peace to feudal Japan. Only massive firepower can subdue today's modern enemy, this piece meal style we are fighting now is only fueling their ranks. I'm sick of seeing our military being needlessly used and abused. Our Air Force has been reported as being near broken, great news for China no doubt. Is anyone in D.C. giving a dang????

Convenient-truthist not going to like this!
Friday, May 11, 2007 8:52 PM
Found this little gem of a story while reading some southeast Asia news.....informed people do this...something you'd think our politicians would do, but what do I know, all I have is a high school diploma and some wasted years in various colleges (though a few classes and professers were valuable and educational). Seems the Al Gore Inconvenient Truthistas and Sheryl Crow One Square-Per-Shotites will not like seeing where the real air pollution threat is finally and truthfully being identified. Read on dear reader:China could overtake US as biggest emissions culprit by November
· Tipping point for CO2 was not expected until 2010· Rapid growth confounds global expectationJohn Vidal, environment editorWednesday April 25, 2007
GuardianChina may overtake the United States as the world's biggest source of greenhouse gases within months, one of the world's leading energy analysts predicted yesterday.
Dr Fatih Birol, chief economist of the Paris-based International Energy Agency, said the country's economic growth had been so fast in 2006 and 2007 that the historic global shift of climate-changing emissions from west to east which was previously predicted for 2009 or 2010 could now happen by November.
But these predictions paled into insignificance, said Dr Birol, if China took no measures to restrain emissions. At current rates, he said, it would be emitting twice as much CO2 as the world's 26 richest countries together within 25 years.
"[By then] CO2 emissions which come from China alone will be double the CO2 emissions which will come from all the OECD countries put together - the whole US, plus Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand" said Mr Birol.
China has signed up to the Kyoto Protocol on climate change, but, as a developing country, it does not have a cap on its emissions. The new prediction that it will become the world's largest contributor of greenhouse gases this year will add to pressure for it to control emissions after 2012 when the treaty runs out.
"Without having China on board, no international climate change policy has any chance of success at all. "Without China playing a significant role, all the efforts of every other country will make little sense. It is terribly important."
However, Dr Birol accepted that on a per capita basis, people in rich countries still emit far more than individual people in China. US emissions in 2004 , the most recent figures available, totalled 5,799 million tonnes of CO2 from 293 million people, compared to China's 4,732 million tonnes of CO2 between 1,296 million people. Historically, China has also contributed little to the present buildup of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.
"By 2030 we calculate each individual in China will emit nearly 7 tonnes of CO2 a year, but the average in OECD countries by then will be 13 tonnes," said Dr Birol
China's breakneck industrial growth, which has been running at nearly 10% a year for four years and was reported to have increased unexpectedly to 11% in the first three months of 2007, has been fuelled almost entirely by burning coal. The most populated country in the world has the world's second largest coal reserves, estimated to be over 185bn tonnes, and 70% of all its greenhouse emissions can be traced to coal. This compares with 32% in the US.
Moreover, there is no sign that China is about to reduce its emissions. Last year it built an average of five 300 megawatt coal-powered electricity plants a week, and burned more than 1.2bn tonnes of coal. Energy consumption in China is expected to continue rising fast as it aims to quadruple the size of its economy by 2020.
It is also massively increasing the amount of oil and other fossil fuels that it uses. Between 1996 and 2003, its oil imports increased from 20 million tonnes to 90 million tonnes. The number of cars on its roads has increased by at least 30% since 2002.
However, China has made serious attempts to stem the growth of its emissions. It demands far higher emission standards from its vehicles than the US, and plans to produce 16% of all its electricity from renewable sources by 2020, while reducing the energy intensity of its economy by a further 20%. China improved its energy intensity by more than 60% between 1980 and 2004.
But while China's leaders speak of their awareness of climate change and the need to address emissions, not enough is being done, say analysts. A progressive renewable energy law came into force in 2006 but it has been implemented slowly. This week state officials are expected to say at a conference in Milan that only 80 wind farms have so far been built - far less than in Britain or Denmark.
China is well aware of the probable effects that climate change will have on the country. According to a report published by its government at the weekend, change will mean larger deserts, more severe droughts and reduced water availability, as well as declining crops and increased spread of disease. The country is also vulnerable to sea level rises and the shrinking of glaciers which provide much of its river water.
However, it is widely believed in economic circles that the country should focus on development first before cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
China this week delayed publishing its long anticipated national "action plan" on climate change. It gave no reason.
Hotter air
Gases present in the atmosphere absorb radiation from the earth's surface causing heat to be retained. This property acts as a natural blanket over the earth's surface. Without this effect the earth's surface would be 20 to 30°C colder. Humans are adding to the naturally occurring greenhouse properties of the atmosphere which leads to increased global warming
International agreements aim to cut back six greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide is by far the most widespread but others are significant.
Carbon dioxide is mainly emitted by the burning of fossil fuels.
Methane is widely emitted from landfills, coal mines, oil and gas operations, and agriculture.
Nitrous oxide is used as an anaesthetic, and also released naturally from bacteria in soils.
Hydrofluorocarbons are used by industry as a refrigerant.
Perfluorocarbons mainly derive from the semiconductor industry.
Sulphur hexafluoride is used by the electrical industry in circuit breakers. Guardian Unlimited © Guardian News and Media Limited 2007 Seems the answer to it all Socialist-Communist kind of governing is not the answer Hillary and Company hoped for.....don't we all know this already.

Enjoy this Mother's Day
Friday, May 11, 2007 6:20 PM
I didn't have a clue as to what I wanted to write about this week, I was both very busy with the new job and very ill at the same time...bronchitis, my doc said there has been a lot of it in the area. I have been trying to keep up with the news, and today, with two medical appointments and much needed sleep all day, I've been gleaming over the websites to play catch up. Stories that did catch my eyes this week was the 'Fort Dix Six', (not all muslims are terrorist but all terrorist have been muslim), the fires on both coast, floods in the heartland, and the already first named tropical storm of the season. Also just read about a story about squirrels dying in Denver from a Black Death type plague....just an anonomly, not in my book. With the ebola type virus in the Great Lakes and now this in Denver, HELLO, anyone in D.C. paying attention???!!! With all the fires burning down both coast, where in the world is PETA, Green Peace, Al Gore, and all of the other enviromental wacko's!!?? Why do I ask that. Because if all of those groups and individuals would put their time and money into true research and development, along with the rest of common sense America, our Nation would have ecology all worked out by now. Our Nation would have a system of diverting all these flood waters into an aqua duct system and transport it into reservoirs, man-made ponds and lakes (oh my..a place to take the family fishing...), and be able to keep this Nation from drying up. Nope, we watch year after year of flood water that eventually makes it way into the ocean or seaps into the ground. 2007 mankind...and people are talking global currencies and politicis.....we still living in caves, we just dress them up better than the Geico caveman did...(sorry dude, just trying to make a point). With all of this, maybe you can see some of what has been causing my pessimissm about the future of the USA. Watching the story too about MUSLIMs in Germany prepping to murder more people that are White European Christian or any of the three despite race. Forget all of this for one day, and totally focus on spending it with your Mother and doing the most boring mundane thing she wants to do. It's her day, with her, you wouldn't be reading this....(Hillary and the New Socialist Democrats of the DNC haven't gained power yet and started mass producing test tube lab-rat humans) , for without your Mother, you wouldn't be here.

Eco-terrorism hits Great Lakes
Sunday, May 06, 2007 1:07 PM
This story ran a few days ago, from a United Kingdom source, and it has to deal with the Great Lakes here in the United States. You know, look at a map, it's that huge bunch of lakes that are up North, between the U.S. and Canada. But, like I imagine, so many things that happen here in the U.S., the mainstream media chooses not to address the issue or the Fed's cover it up so as not to 'frighten' the public. But as you read the following story, how could such an invasive and powerful strain of virus travel with such deadly intent if it were not intentional!!??
Revealed: the deadly invader that is bleeding Great Lakes fish to death
Aggressive virus brought in by ships devastates freshwater species - and could spread across the continent
By Geoffrey Lean, Environment Editor
Published: 06 May 2007
Tens of thousands of fish have been bleeding to death from an aggressive Ebola-like virus in North America's Great Lakes. Officials fear that the plague will spread to devastate waters across the continent.
The epidemic - caused by what one US government scientist calls "the most important and dangerous fish virus known worldwide" - is believed to have been brought into the lakes by ocean-going ships.
It is focussing attention on the scores of alien species already spreading uncontrolled in the lakes, which contain a fifth of the world's fresh water. State governments are belatedly trying to introduce measures to control this "living pollution", only to be sued by shipping companies for "placing an undue burden" on them.
The killer - called viral haemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) - has already affected some 37 species of fish in the lakes, including salmon, trout, perch and white bass. Almost every species caught commercially or for sport in the lakes' $4bn (£2bn) fishing business has been hit.
Victims bloat up and bleed from bulging eyes before dying. The extraordinarily virulent disease is sweeping rapidly through the lakes and is expected to start going on full rampage again within the next couple of weeks when the water warms up to its favoured temperature.
When first discovered, just two years ago, the virus was affecting only two species in a few patches of water, but it quickly spread to Lakes Ontario and Erie, and Lake St Clair, on which Detroit stands. It has recently been confirmed in Lake Huron, and is expected to reach Lake Michigan soon.
"Updates over the winter suggest that it has spread further than we thought, even last year", says John Dettmers, a fisheries biologist for the Great Lakes Fisheries Commission. "As much as I'd like to say we know exactly what is going on, we don't. We're all sitting on the edge of our chairs waiting to see how bad it's going to be this year."
Genetic tests show that the virus probably originated in the Atlantic off New Brunswick, Canada, right next to the start of the St Lawrence Seaway, the shipping route which leads to the lakes. That points the finger squarely at the 220 ocean-going ships that enter the lakes each year as the source of the plague.
Ships take in ballast water to steady them when they are sailing without a cargo, only to discharge it when they reach the ports where they load up. But the water is inevitably populated by species of fish, plants and viruses which are then given free rides around the globe. Some flourish vigorously in their new surroundings, creating plagues.
In all, 183 such alien species have been found in the Great Lakes and a new one is being discovered every six months. Just one - the zebra mussel, originally from the Caspian Sea and imported in ballast water in 1988 - has already caused $3.1bn of damage, clogging up drains and vents and damaging boats. Others include the colourfully-named bloody red shrimp, quagga mussels, round gobies, sea lampreys, and spiny and fishhook water fleas.
The invasion - and the spread of the virus - is fuelling an ecological xenophobia over "creepy crawly things from foreign lands."
"How would you like to invite a bunch of strangers from other countries to come over and go to the bathroom in your bathtub?", asked a writer on Detroit's Metro Times earlier this year. "Sound sick and disgusting? Sure does."
The disease does not threaten people; cooking kills the virus. But environmentalists fear that it is only a matter of time before one arrives that poses a danger to human health. "The lakes are vulnerable to any pathogen getting in here", says Jennifer Nalbone of the Great Lakes United conservation pressure group.
Scientists fear that the virus will spread throughout the continent's rivers and lakes. "Once a species has been introduced and establishes itself, it will continue to grow and spread, not only in the Great Lakes, but across the waterways of North America", says Professor David Lodge, the director of the Centre for Aquatic Conservation at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
And Dr James Winton, the chief of fish health at the US Geological Survey in Seattle - who calls VHS "the most important and dangerous fish virus known worldwide" - adds; "Its discovery in our freshwater is disturbing and potentially catastrophic."
Last autumn, the US Department of Agriculture banned the transport of live fish from Great Lakes states unless they could be shown to be free of the virus.
The State of Michigan has banned ocean going ships - known as "salties" as opposed to the "lakers" that ply their trade within the Great Lakes system - from discharging ballast water unless it its first sterilised. Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana and other states are considering introducing similar rules.
But nine shipping groups representing the salties are suing Michigan saying that the law is unconstitutional, unjust and unfair. They say that it "places unreasonable burdens on interstate commerce and is clearly excessive in relation to the putative local benefits gained."
But Bob McCann of the state's Department of Environmental Quality replies that the law is "Michigan's way of saying enough is enough."
The biggest freshwater lake system on Earth
* The Great Lakes - Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario - were formed by glacial meltwater at the end of the last ice age
* They are the largest surface freshwater system on Earth, covering 243,000 square km
* They hold one-fifth of the world's surface freshwater supply
* They contain 35,000 islands - including Manitoulin in Lake Huron, the largest in any inland body of water
* 183 invasive "alien" species have been found in them, and a new one is discovered every six months
* Spread out evenly, their water would cover the 48 contiguous US states to a depth of 9.5ft

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If this were just an 'accident' due to the unfortuneate side-effects of international trade, then there is more steam for the protectionist movement. Our borders are wide open, our fresh water supply is wide open, and Nero and the entire 'Senate' sit and watch while 'Rome' burns, as they have since the end of World War Two. But this 'ebola-type' infection is in our major fresh water supply!!! Hello...anyone home listening!!! I expect to see a blip on the TV news from a 'concerned' D.C., ...'there is a Senate/Congressional subcommittee looking into this...blah blah blah, yada yada yada.'. Nothing but your tax dollars will be wasted and the U.S. continues to die a slow death.
