AmericanS in the HoT SeaT

America, the Global Target

"Hoping to lower tensions between the Mus-lim world and the West, British Prime Minister Tony Blair maintained the other day that the world confronts "a clash about civilization," not "a clash between civilizations." But the overriding lesson of events since Sept. 11, 2001, may be that you can't have one without the other.

In radical Isl-amic propaganda, the United States has graduated from being a mere Great Satan out to undermine Iran's ayatollahs to being depicted as a global monster responsible for virtually every crime and failing since the dawn of modern history. Meet the new Jews: the Americans.

Don't misunderstand. Americans have not replaced Jews at the top of the hate parade in Is-lamic countries. But the history of anti-Semitism, a word coined in Germany to provide a bogus scientific basis for prejudice against Jews, and its spread in recent years across the Middle East as an all-purpose explanation of whatever is wrong, should give Americans no cause for complacency.

The centrality of American power to global change -- good and bad, economic and political, topsy and turvy -- inevitably carries with it a heavy burden abroad of resentment and opposition. In the wake of Sept. 11 and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a widespread stereotyping and a visceral hatred that imputes racial characteristics to national policies and actions have also taken hold.

The distemper of these global times can be read in a wide variety of settings, where this new virulent anti-Americanism competes with historical anti-Semitism as a single explanation for the failures and delusions of entire nations..

Second, Americans need to recognize that the problems we face in the Middle East are bigger than the failings or mistakes of Bush & Co. Those problems would not fade quickly if U.S. troops left Iraq tomorrow."

Someone commits a hate crime every hour in the good ole U.S.A.and at least three Jews become hate crime victims.
American history is rife with prejudice against groups and individuals because of their race, including Blacks as well as Jews...However, the 20th century witnessed tremendous progress in outlawing discrimination, and nowadays most upstanding Americans are against any form of bigotry.

But "hate groups" such as Izlamofacists haven't caught up with the times.They must produce stereotypes, the evil Jew, the arrogant American, to justify their unequal treatment,terror and to maintain an atmosphere of rage among their people.
At different times in history hate wore different faces...Today the Jew and the American have earned the spotlight.
The murderous Izlamofacists and the PC-dominated left wing groups who appease these enemies and publicly defame our soldiers, now unite.

Acceptance of differences and tolerance of others , however is human choice. It stems from a deep rooted belief that all people are valuable, that no one is inherently less than another. Not exactly consistent with Izlamofacist indoctrination now is it?

Tony Blair maintained the other day that the world confronts "a clash about civilization,"...
The left wingers are nothing but a poor blend of fascist, Communist, and socialist ideologies ..Couple that with empathy for Izlmofacists...and there is no longer "civilization".

WhaT do we ReallY OwN?

Fallen troops' effects handled with care Medals, mail -- maybe even a forbidden pup. These folks get it home.

"ABERDEEN, Md. - The personal stuff they carried to war, the remnants of lives lost in Iraq, was spread neatly across long tables in a drafty warehouse last week.
Mortuary affairs troops wearing surgical gloves at the Joint Personal Effects Depot went about the tedious work of counting and separating out what belonged to the soldier and what belonged to the government...

In three years of war, Lt. Col. Deborah Skillman, the depot's commander, said her unit at the military's Aberdeen Proving Ground has cut the time for getting the personal effects back to the families from 45 to 22 days.
But the checklist efficiency does little to relieve the stress of handling, photographing and doing the inventory on the last items a fallen comrade may have held, laughed about, cared about.

"You're touching somebody's life here," said Army Capt. Cathy Carman, 34, of Eustis, Fla., who is in charge of the section that carefully packs and boxes up the belongings for shipment home.
"It's an emotional job; nobody here will argue about that," Carman said.

She gestured to a box of tissues kept nearby for the 120 troops and civilian personnel, many of them retired military, who handle the items belonging to soldiers and Marines killed in action.
Driver's license, house keys, letters from home, a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart, diaries, cigarette lighters, Air Jordans, photo albums, children's drawings, Christmas stockings. Also the spent cartridges from the farewell salute fired by the service member's buddies in Iraq.

When a soldier is killed, his unit inventories and packs what he kept at his bunk site in rucksacks, sea bags and footlockers.
The personal effects of the more than 2,300 troops killed in Iraq have all gone first to the Dover, Del., Air Force Base and then to Aberdeen.

Rivera pointed to a torn-up piece of a brown paper bag with "We Love You" in what appeared to be a child's scrawl written in crayon upon it.
"We don't know what that is. Maybe it's something a kid in Iraq gave to him. It was in his stuff and that's going home.."

Is it about what they "own"?
Sometimes we construct meanings for material objects much in the same way we construct meanings for people..
We all have that special, cherished, or "favorite" possession.
Yes this is our "stuff"..a mere tangible item - clothing, jewelry..perhaps a saved letter.
But it is not of consequence what this soldier "owned". It is now about letting those who loved him or her own more "joy" through the memories of her prized possession...own more love by letting his memory shine out to all those honor him...
and for us ..to own more respect for those laying down their lives for us...even as we speak.

You must see this over at thirdworldcountry.it's time for a little less talk and ALOT more action on illegals.

OdE to Sept.11 FamilieS of LoveD OneS

More Human Remains Found Near WTC Site
"NEW YORK - Construction workers cleaning toxic waste from a vacant skyscraper near the World Trade Center site have found more bone fragments and human remains, officials said Tuesday.

The city medical examiner's office plans to extract DNA from the latest remains to be recovered from the former Deutsche Bank building and try to match it against a database of the 2,749 people killed at the trade center on Sept. 11, 2001, said Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for the city medical examiner's office.

More than 40 percent of the victims at the trade center have not been identified. The medical examiner's office is storing more than 9,000 unidentified remains and hope that more sophisticated DNA technology can allow for identifications in the future."

Bone fragments of an innocent American man or woman...Unspeakable.

The Izlamo-fascist Terrorists attempted to teach us some lessons from the taste of our own blood..
They who teach their children to dance in the streets upon viewing carnage.
They who share the hallmarks of a true barbarian :a total lack of empathy while demonizing of the innocent.

What do the Terrorists want?..
Is it our land, our wealth, perhaps our stunning monuments..
Perhaps... But the true goal is much more insidious than that my dear friends..

The ultimate aim is to rent a room inside your head, your psyche,
to rob you of your precious peace of mind, of knowing what it feels like to have faith and trust in something larger than yourself..
To prevent you from believing that this convoluted world of ours can also be merciful, excercise justice, and celebrate true freedom...
But most of all...to kill your belief that Love survives.

But my precious fellow Americans and New Yorkers...Love has...It has.

So bring it on Izlamo-fascists...because God is still in His Glorious Heaven...and
There isn't a bomb built that can ever extinguish that.

Rrrright it Must Be the LobbY

"There are two ideas that America, even now, will support; the ideally good and the underdog. Israel falls into both of these categories."

..John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt have released a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” They attempt to explain how Israeli lobbies are guiding the policy of the United States in the Middle East region..
Israel the Good Underdog clarifies.

Israel is the lone democracy in a sea of despots and oppression. Despite continuous harassment they have been able to build a successful society in a sea of despair. For the last 58 years Israel has done its best to establish and maintain this democracy. Living in an area smaller than the state of New Jersey they have been able to stave off attacks from the enemies that surround them. In fact, they are a constant reminder to the surrounding nations of their own failures. Despite living in a terrain that is not conducive to crop growth they have been able, with the exception of grain, to be self sustainable. With a labor force of less than 2.5 million they have a GDP of $123 billion. Because of their lack of resources they have learned to excel in the services sector of business.

Being a relative sliver of land they have been able to defend themselves physically and ideologically from their surrounding enemies. They have stood up against nations that have
superior resources and finances. The only true ally that they have has is the United States.

Every day they face homicide bombers and enemies on the brink. They have had to watch as diplomats made excuses for the actions of those who wish to destroy Israel...

They have watched murderous thugs receive peace prizes and awards from the world body. Despite this, they continue to fight for their right to exist. Had their neighbors accepted the partition in 1948 none of what they face today would be occurring."


Did you know that Israel celebrates Independence Day by holding a Bible contest..All citizens have health care..Airplanes have sky marshals, (go figure!)..
Close to 99% of all Israelis have families, and are regularly in touch
with them...

Western societies are just that: "societies". Israel is made up of
"a People",
..and no mere amalgam of private selves releasing a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” can change that fact.

All the NewS NoT fit to PrinT

Funny, I must have missed this headline in my local newspaper..
Come to think of it,in my local news report, radio newscast,...or even on the World Wide Web (of deceit).......
"U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq have distributed more than 1,000 free wheelchairs to disabled Iraqis since July 2005, according to a non-profit group that donates the chairs.
American Heroes: Soldiers Build Wheelchairs for Iraqis
The specially-designed chairs are made from modified plastic patio chairs, mountain bike wheels, and steel frames. Each chair costs less than $45 for parts and shipping.

According to the group's website, the design makes the wheelchairs durable and the mountain bike wheels enable the operators of the chairs to navigate rough terrain where a traditional wheelchair would give them trouble.

Soldiers and other volunteers use their free time to participate in the program. Soldiers assemble the chairs and distribute them to Iraqis of all ages who have debilitating diseases like cerebral palsy and injuries that limit mobility."

One small detail that mainstream media seem to forget:
The soldier, not the liberal reporter -is the one who preserves our "freedom of the press".
So to the the ones who eagerly report on our "Reign of Terror" in Iraq and are on the edge of their seats anticipating updates for the Abu Ghraib Abuse Photo Gallery....
Howza bout a wheelchair for a young girl in the town of Baladiat assembled by Pfc. Erik Meyers..

Guard the Borders Blogburst of the Week

This past week there were numerous demonstrations across the country, as immigrants were organized to protest any federal legislation that would tighten immigration enforcement. The rallies were organized by unions, church groups, socialist activists, civil rights advocates, and immigrant organizations to demand free immigration rights as their due and protest the "unjust laws" of our nation.

Los Angeles had the nation's largest mobilization of immigrants ever, which the LA Times described as "boisterous" and "spirited" and "mostly peaceful": "The marchers included both longtime residents and the newly arrived, bound by a desire for a better life and a love for this county." ("Newly arrived" being a politically-correct euphemism for "illegal".) The estimated crowd of 500,000 proudly carried tens of thousands of Mexican flags, which belied the blissful claim that they are "bound by a love for this country".

"There has never been this kind of mobilization in the immigrant community ever," said Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. "They have kicked the sleeping giant. It's the beginning of a massive immigrant civil rights struggle."

In Georgia, many Latinos protested a newly passed bill aimed at curbing illegal immigration by not working or shopping for the day. Guess what? The state's economy didn't collapse! A small American rally in Temecula, CA, focused on border security and law enforcement. We also saw peaceably demonstrating American citizens attacked by an unruly crowd of pro-illegal immigration and socialist protesters in Indiana.

This week, our Senate continues the debate on illegal immigration, with an upcoming vote on the McCain-Kennedy Amnesty bill. And, pressing for his "guest worker" program, our President repeats the tired (and untrue) refrain that our country needs these workers to do what Americans won't:

"We must remember there are hardworking individuals, doing the jobs that Americans will not do, who are contributing the economic vitality of our country," the president said in his weekend radio address.

However, the Minuteman Party has responded:

No longer content to sit on the sidelines while politicians sell out our sovereignty and turn our citizenship into a yoke of slavery in the service of foreign interests, we are fighting that government "of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth".

What is this precious sovereignty that we need to safeguard? Why is it central to our existence as a free nation? And how does it relate to our national security? Considering the fact that pro-illegal immigration forces were able to mobilize hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to demonstrate their demands for what Americans have and their rights to the privileges of our citizenship, it is imperative that we understand how much we have to lose. Because once lost, it can never be regained. These issues have been addressed in layman's terms in a series of excellent essays by LinknZona. The first in the series defines security and sovereignty and how the two are irrevocably linked (reproduced below with permission). Links to the follow-on essays provide a step-by-step examination of the true impact of unchecked immigration and permissive illegal immigration on our sovereignty as a nation.

Security and Sovereignty No. 1: What Are We Talking About?

This is the first post in a new series addressing the security and sovereignty of the United States. These words are related but quite different in meaning and nuance. Security is a noun meaning safety, the absence of danger or risk. In the national context, it means vigilance and actions taken by the government to prevent invasion, attack, and the sabotage, spying, and treason that accompany them; the totality of measures taken to keep the nation safe and free from danger. More realistically in today’s world, rather than free from danger; security means to minimize the risks or threats.

Sovereignty is a noun and means a government free from external control or the authority of one country to govern another. An important point is the source of sovereignty. The historical model of a kingdom was that the king ruled by divine right. In a totalitarian state power is gained and then held by force and coercion. In democratic countries, i.e. the US, power derives from the people. There are additional forms and various gradations between the definitions, but for the purposes herein, we will emphasize totalitarian and democratic countries.

One shudders at the thoughts of countries without a history of security: Poland, Israel, and the Low Countries – these have been invaded throughout history and repeatedly have lost their sovereignty. That they stand free today is a tribute to man’s strength and hope. Jordan kicked the Palestinians out of their country and chased them into Lebanon and for more than a quarter of a century Syria held de facto sovereignty over most of Lebanon. In contrast, the United Kingdom has remained a sovereign nation for centuries.

A country can lose its sovereignty in several ways. By conquest, by a division or a ceding as in a small country caught between two powerful neighbors, by appeasing an aggressive neighbor with territory or control, or by allowing migration, or infiltration of peoples from one country into another one until sufficient numbers and power are gained by the infiltrators to demand partitioning or complete control. Thus, we see the link between security and sovereignty. In the ever dangerous world in which we live, sovereignty cannot be maintained without security. Therefore, if sovereignty is the will of the people then they must devise and organize a national strategy for security. Sovereignty requires security from war and conquest, from domination by other countries and partitioning or territorial ceding, security from threats and intimidation, and security from infiltration.

Security and Sovereignty No. 2: Setting the Ground Rules

A summary of the sworn duty of the one person most responsible for our security and sovereignty: the President.

Security and Sovereignty No. 3: The President's Duties

In light of the President’s Constitutional duties to our national security and sovereignty, this essay assesses how he is meeting the obligations of his duty.

Security and Sovereignty No. 4: How Many Illegal Aliens are in America?

Frighteningly enough, no one really knows. The sheer volume of illegal border crossings makes any figure a guesstimate. How secure can our country be when millions of unknown foreigners are crowding our towns and cities?

Security and Sovereignty No. 5: A Tale of Two Small Businesses

What’s the overall economic impact of illegal aliens on American workers and taxpayers? The short answer is they cost America hundreds of billions of dollar a year.

Security and Sovereignty No. 6: A Threat to Our Two Party System and Some Steps We Can Take

This essay outlines the threat of illegal immigration to our sovereignty and what we might do to save America. The short answer is that we must eliminate illegal immigration, preserve our two party system, and restore respect for the rule of law in America.

These essays are offered to our readership because knowledge is power, and forewarned is forearmed. If the pro-illegal alien crowd is geared up towards positioning wide open borders as a "massive immigrant civil rights struggle" then we have to make sure that the "sleeping giant" they've kicked is not ignorant of the ultimate costs of his continued inaction. This giant doesn't have the luxury of sleep anymore - there is too much at stake.

Bashing on BumperS

Woman Gets Ticket For Bush-Bashing Bumper Sticker

Decatur, GA -- The officer cited 47-year-old Denise Grier for her bumper sticker that takes a dig at President Bush. It combines Bush's name with a vulgar four-letter word, as in "I'm Tired of All The (blank)."

The officer cited the registered nurse at Emory University Hospital for violating a state law prohibiting lewd or profane stickers and decals on vehicles.
Grier, the officer and an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union will meet in court next month when Grier contests the misdemeanor charge which carries a $100 fine.

Grier told the Athens Banner-Herald yesterday that she's not "a huge political activist or rabble-rouser." But she says, "I am so appalled at the officer's attempt to squash my freedom of speech.
The ACLU says the Georgia Supreme Court ruled more than a decade ago that the law against lewd bumper stickers is unconstiutional.

In addition to the offending bumper sticker, Grier's white Chrysler's rear window sports two other political statements: A crossed-out "W" and "Hillary 2008."

Obscene” speech, “fighting words,” “clear and present danger” speech, defaming and libelous speech “can, consistent with the First Amendment, be regulated because of their constitutionally proscribable content....” R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul, Minn., 505 U.S. 381, 383(112 SC 2538, 2543, 120 LE2d 305) (1992).
In Cunningham v. State, supra, 260 Ga. at 831, we observed that “lewd is much broader than obscene ... meaning, among other things, vulgar, base, evil, wicked,poor, worthless.(1989).2OCGA

People who feel the need to "express" themselves via lewd and crude bumper stickers..ah yes...
vulgar, base, evil, wicked,worthless...

And to boot-A Hillary fan..Well, that explains it, now doesn't it.

Who's TherE?

Don't FlatteR YourselveS

"KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan court on Sunday dismissed a case against a man who converted from Is-lam to Christianity because of a lack of evidence and he will be released soon, officials said.

The announcement came as U.S.-backed President Hamid Karzai faced mounting foreign pressure to free Abdul Rahman, a move that risked angering Mus-lim clerics here who have called for him to be killed."

"He said several of Rahman's family members have testified that the 41-year-old has mental problems. "It is the job of the attorney general's office to decide if he is mentally fit to stand trial," he told AP."

Mus-lim clerics had threatened to incite Afghans to kill Rahman if the government freed him. They said he clearly violated Is-lamic Sha-riah law by rejecting Is-lam.

Karzai has had to be careful not to offend Is-lamic sensibilities at home and alienate religious conservatives who wield considerable power.
He said Rahman had been asking guards for a Bible but that they did not have any to give him."

Have you ever heard of a major political decision being changed "so as not to offend" women, or Jews for that matter? Despite huge outcry and civil protest anti-Christian artwork is routinely displayed, and yet the proprietors don't reconsider "so as not to offend" Christians.

Why is that?
It's all about the Anger.
Anger is "an emotional state that varies in intensity-anywhere from mild irritation to intense rage.
The instinctive,or what some would even call the most "natural way" to express anger is to respond aggressively.
Anger is a adaptive response when one if feeling "threatened".It often evokes powerful, aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves (and our loved ones) when we are attacked. In other words, a certain amount of anger, is healthy therefore,and even necessary to our survival."

Conversely, we can't very well physically lash out at every person or object that upsets, irritates or annoys us. That's called barbarism.
We therefore inact laws,institute social norms, and trust that common sense will place limits on how far our anger can take us.

Then there is the sociocultural influence.In some cultures, anger is often regarded as negative, while in South Central L.A.for example, gang members are "rewarded" and considered "macho" when they riot and burn cars.
Some consider anger "taboo", and may be taught that it's all right to express anxiety, depression, or other emotions but not to express anger. As a result, they don't learn how to handle it or to even channel it constructively.

One thing we do know is that family background plays a huge role. Typically, people who are easily angered come from families that are disruptive, chaotic, and not skilled at emotional communications.

In essence when governments withdraw political positions "so as not to offend" Muzlims, what they are really saying is ..."so as not to incur their wrath"..and their subsequent pathological. rageful, murderous, barbaric behavior.

You see, a "healthy" response to an anger provoking situation is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes.
You learn very early on in life that you can not eliminate or avoid, all the people or things that enrage you, and you certainly know you have no power to directly change them. The one thing a 'mentally healthy' person learns, however is that he or she can learn to control his or her reactions.

In essence when we hear of policy change due to government's "sensitivity" toward a "group"..(since when has government of all things concerned themselves with emotion?)...
that "group" should be far from flattered.

Read between the lines.
What is meant is that your "people" have a history of acting in ways that are out of control and frightening. They are viewed as undisciplined, unevolved "hotheadeds" who clearly get angry more easily and more intensely than a balanced person does.
They are prone to show their anger in violent ways - cursing, throwing things, burning buildings, cars, physically assualting or killing other people.

In other words, they simply have no ability to take things in stride, most especially if the situation seems to them somehow unjust.

But as we all know...(or at least the "healthy" ones among us)..
Unbridled anger actually escalates anger and aggression. In addition to which it does nothing to help you resolve the problem or situation.

So, in essence, we are dealing with not only one person but millions who have proven themselves incapable of proper "impulse control" and " conflict resolution".

They behave very much like a poorly disciplined child or bully, who feels self righteous and justified, believing that there is no way to solve the problem. They thus choose to bully, alienate,humiliate and torture people who might otherwise be willing to work with them on finding a compromise or long term solution.

The attorney general's office is to decide if Rahman "is mentally fit to stand trial,"?
That's laughable.
In a culture where they all feel morally right, where any compromise or changing of their ways is an unbearable indignity that they deem that they should not have to suffer...
where violence is the first response to disappointment and frustration...

Oh yea, they are excellent diagnosticians of 'Mental Health' aren't they?

Free Speech: As LonG as You Don't SpeaK

Controversial Prophet Mu-hammad Cartoons Appear At Free-Speech Rally

London, England -- About 200 people have turned out for a free-speech demonstration in central London. And some of them carried posters of the controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muh-ammad that infuriated much of the Mus-lim world.

Protest organizers had originally invited protesters to display the images on banners and T-shirts. But they later withdrew that invitation to avoid alienating sympathetic Mus-lims.

The reversal prompted hundreds of angry Internet responses from people who called it political censorship.

Some demonstrators showed their support for the cartoons by carrying signs saying "Stop Toonophobia." Others draped themselves in Danish flags.
Nine men identified by police as Mus-lim counter-protesters were escorted away."

Escorted away eh?..ahem..were those the "symathetic ones"?

Is your belief in 'free speech'based upon your morals, or on other people's morals?
We know the United States Government rarely gets directly involved in censorship issues, save during wartime. (which despite the elective "blindness" of the Left..this IS)

Our oft quoted First Amendment guarantees freedom of expression within certain limits defined by the Supreme Court. Senators and congressmen have always been loathe to create censorship laws, as just about every attempt to do so (even involving brutal and violent images of torturing women) have been struck down as unconstitutional.
And along come the Muzlims claiming some cartoons "offensive". The presses come to a grinding halt.
But if dehumanization of an enemy is a component of wartime propaganda, they are guiltier than any other in their unending depiction of Jews and Americans as ugly, long nosed , sinister vultures.

And now a handful summon up the courage to stage a FREE speech demo. and then don't excercise the very free speech they are protesting for - so as to ..."avoid alienating sympathetic Mus-lims?

I think I need a stiff drink...and I don't even drink.

Stop the ACLU has Open Trackbacks and the usual goodies.

Afghan Christian 'likely to be released soon : official

"An Afghan Christian facing possible execution for converting from Is-lam was likely to be released from jail "soon," a senior government official said following huge Western pressure over the case.
He is likely to be released soon," the official said, adding there would be a top-level meeting on the matter Saturday.

Abdul Rahman was arrested two weeks ago under Is-lamic Sha-ria law and faced a possible death sentence in a case that has attracted widespread condemnation, especially from the United States.
Afghanistan's Supreme Court said Thursday it was trying to find a "good solution" to the case, the first of its kind here, including persuading Rahman to revert to Is-lam.

Sha-ria law, on which the Afghan constitution is partly based, rules that conversion away from Is-lam must be punished by death if the accused person fails to revert."

Well sweet friends, Now is the time to wake up and dust off our state of complacency
This is only an indicator of things to come.

Don't Mess with TeXans

"It's a good thing President Bush is a Texan. I’m sure he sees the similarities between shoveling horse manure and taking questions from certain members of the White House Press."
Oh..Yeeehaww!..I'm luvin that one!
When You Play With a Texan… tells it like it is. Heh.

"Obviously I’m not surprised at the left wing hypocrites within the press. These vultures will attack the President every time they get a chance. However, they should at least be more tasteful. The blatant cynicism and more accurately, the extreme loathing for President Bush that the main stream media and some members of the White House Press illustrate, gives a tainted view on our country—and that should never be tolerated! Thus, Helen Thomas would be advised to know, that when you play with a Texan, you’re going to be lassoed in front of the press for slanted journalism."

Jus thought I'd dedicate that to mah Texan buddies..You know who You are!..Heh.

DusT off YouR Bible

The 'Bible Literacy Project' - Not Attacked by the ACLU Yet! goes on to say..
“Congress granted the approval to print “a neat edition of the Holy Scriptures for the use of schools.” Congress’ endorsement stamped on the first page: “Whereupon, Resolved, That the United States in Congress assembled...recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States...”.

Okay, American Civil Liberties Union, People for the (anything but) American Way, and People United for Separation of Church and State --- don’t get yourselves in an uproar! It’s history. The above event happened twice --- 1777 and 1782 when Congress ordered 20,000 Bibles each time for the benefit of citizens and childrens’ education...

..Then there was no question about the Bible as education...The last 80 years, the ACLU and others have taken America’s Christian foundation to court --- and Won! through the idiocy of socialist-minded, self-serving Supreme Court judges...

Today’s public schools, connected as they are to the purse strings of the secular federal government, have pushed God and His Word out of the schools thereby limiting childrens’ education. Children lack background reference to many phrases common in language such as “walk on water,” “pearls before swine,” “30 pieces of silver,” “the Golden Rule,” and “the last shall be first.” How would a child or an adult know where these phrases originated or what they mean unless they have read the Bible?

Despite the attempt to twist the First Amendment to suit small-minded and self-serving interest groups, the people are responding through adopting Bible curriculum as an elective in high schools. One such group is the National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools (NCBCPS). Their course called “The Bible as History and Literature” is taught in 1,100 high schools in 346 school districts in 37 states, from Alaska and California to New Jersey and Florida. The Bible is the textbook. The ACLU does not endorse this curriculum but has not sued to date.

Imagine the Congress authorizing the printing of the Bible for public schools today. The enraged outcry from special interests, minority groups, and other secular, atheist factions would further extinguish the voices that speak to us through the Bible."

Back in the day, a common question would be - What does Bible say about..?It was God who set the moral standards for mankind. How does morality exist outside of the theological context?
Look around you these days...it doesn't.

What you bear witness to is moral chaos reminiscent of ancient Israel before the time of its kings when "everyone did what was right in his own eyes" (Judges 21:25).To state that moral relativism and situational ethics work in the long run is a purely dishonest rationalization.

While it is certainly appealing to think that humans would discover "on their own"- that murder, lying, stealing, and pornogrpahy are harmful enough to the general welfare to be considered morally wrong...the evidence lies in the decadent Godless culture you see before you.

When deciding issues of "right or wrong" it seems most find themselves hopelessly trapped in a maze of confusion with no clear direction.
Homosexual marriage?

Wer'e lost with respect to the most fundamental aspects of our lives: Our locus of control,what truly gives us self-esteem, our social values, and the status of the family.

Perhaps next time we are faced with a moral dilmemna, we would do wise to ask "What does Bible say about..?"

Homeowner Finds Bloody Alligator On Doorstep

"Bonita Springs, FL -- So now the alligators are going door to door.

A Florida woman heard someone knocking at the door of her home in Bonita Springs this week. When she looked out, she saw an eight-foot alligator.

Lori Pachelli says the bull gator had a bloody lip from banging its head against the door.

It apparently had wandered up from the pond behind her house. She says it may have followed her home from walking her dog.

The gator remained at the door for about an hour before going back into the water, where a trapper later captured it.

The trapper says it's not unusual to find male alligators in interesting places this time of year since it's breeding season."

Moral of the Story anyone?...heh.

HillarY on JesuS

"Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that Republican-sponsored border security measures making it a federal crime to offer assistance to illegal immigrants would "criminalize" even Jesus. "It is hard to believe that a Republican leadership that is constantly talking about values and about faith would put forth such a mean-spirited piece of legislation,"

GOP Bill Would 'Criminalize' Jesus, Sen. Clinton Says
Clinton said during a news conference regarding a bill that was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in December. A similar bill was introduced last week by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.). "It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scripture because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself," she said. "We need to sound the alarm about what is being done in the Congress." While noting that "we need comprehensive immigration reform," Clinton added: "Taking a harsh position is not going to solve the problem."

Okie...Let us see now sweet readers........In addition to sneaking into this country, which in case Hil forgot is in violation of the immigration law that requires that aliens be documented for legal entry affectionately known as ""entry without inspection" , others enter with legal documentation and then proceed to violate the terms on which they have been admitted by taking jobs that are not authorized or overstaying the authorized period of stay in the country.

According to CIS The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) estimates that in January of 2000 there were
7 million illegal aliens living in the United States, a number that is growing by half a million a year.(You do the Math) Thus, the illegal-alien population in 2003 stands at at least 8 million. Included in this estimate are approximately 78,000 illegal aliens from countries who are of special concern in the war on terror.

And what of the hundred thousand that are ahem...."of special concern in the war on terror."Oh. silly me...There IS no WaR on TerroR, because wer'e not being terrorized Hil Right?...what was I thinking?

But Truth be told, The "Jesus" touch was priceless. You know how it goes..The more extreme and passionate your contempt for moral values and God, the more the "blood letting" begins.

Oh , by the way...Did Hil get "religion" while we weren't looking?

From my buddy : Gribbit:

Abstinence Is Harmful? News To Us

Today the American Civil Liberties Union issued a press release which is featured on their website's " Newsroom" page that is titled, " ACLU Hails Rhode Island Department of Education Efforts to Stop the Use of Harmful "Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage" Curriculum in Public Schools ". Only the ACLU and a liberal state like Rhode Island could find abstaining from sexual activity harmful.

The fact is that abstinence is the only form of birth control and STD prevention that works 100% that it is employed. By practicing the ultimate in safe sex, NO SEX, no children are unnecessarily slaughtered in the name of choice, no drugs are being used in order to prevent pregnancy for the sake of promiscuity, and no one will need to be treated for sexually transmitted diseases. So what is the ACLU's difficulty with teaching this effective form of birth control? Homosexuals in this nation cannot be married in any other state than Massachusetts. And no other state except Massachusetts recognizes marriages performed to same sex couples. If abstinence is taught as it should be, as the ONLY effective form of birth control and STD prevention, homosexuals will not be receiving the indoctrination that the ACLU believes that they should.

By accepting that teenagers are going to have sex before marriage and taking a position of defeatism in the war to prevent this from occurring, we are then telling teenagers to go ahead and have sex. This is akin to telling your child not to shop lift but if they are going to anyway to not get caught. Then teaching them methods on not getting caught as opposed to teaching them to just plain not do it.

Abstinence is not harmful, it is the only truly safe and healthy program out there. Condoms don't protect against Human Papilloma Virus or Herpes. Hormonal birth control don't protect against STDs and is only 92% effective (this means if you have sex 100 times, you have an 8% chance of getting pregnant even with the pill when taken as directed.). And we all know how many women forget to take the pills. Add to that the dangers when artificially changing the hormonal balance in a woman's system can lead to increased chances of cancer and heart disease.

Fact - Condoms break, leak, and do not protect against HPV or Herpes. Some people are have allergies to latex.
Fact - Birth Control Pills don't protect against STDs and mess with the hormonal balance in the woman's body.
Fact - Herpes is transmitted by skin contact and requires no fluid transfer.
Fact - A fetus is a living being called a baby not tissue or a parasite.
Fact - Abortion has been linked to increased occurrences of Breast Cancer.
Fact - Post abortive women experience a high rate of depression and repeat abortions.
Fact - Some risks associated with abortion include internal bleeding and infection.
Fact - The only way to avoid these complications is to not have sex and the ACLU calls teaching this fact harmful.

AfricaN IsraeliS

Why do you suppose so many are outraged by even the very existence of the State of Israel?

I contend it is because they have been duped. The association has been made that has likened Israelis to "The White Man" a.k.a. the bad ole European oppressors and A-rabs, who prefer the fictitious name "Palestinians", to Blacks or Native Americans namely, indigenous people of colour who have been abused and kicked out of what they purport to be their native home.

Then the liberals or or even some conscientious, though ignorant people - sound the cry of Racism! Colonialism!..and the A-rab propaganda machine is off to races.

Reads like a real fairy tale, however, without a morsel of Truth.

For starters, most of the Jooooooooooos in Israel are not even White. While the A-rabs were ceremoniously rejecting those who fled their homes and allowing the formation of "refugee camps" for their people instead, hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from Arab countries flocked to Israel, who welcomed them with open arms. They and their generations of children make up the majority of Jews in Israel.

As to some in the Black community, who have been known to use the heated term "apartheid" when referring to Israel-- I say - not only were women and Jews a huge part of the Civil War Movement in this country, but a large majority of the Jews who never left Israel were from North Africa. So I suppose we could call them "African-Israelis" if you will.
Many others came from what is present day Iraq, Morocco Egypt,Syria,and Yemen. Not exactly "White Europeans" eh?

And as they say..The rest is history.
Once the Muzlims conquered Israel, Jews were massacred, abused and oppressed for over 1,300 years.

Oh, and the next time you read in the news how the "vicious Israelis" stole -"the West Bank" or "Gaza".Let me fill you in on a tidbit. After Israel was declared a State in 1948, and the
A-rabs subsequently chose to wage war to destroy her...Guess who controlled "the West Bank" and "Gaza"?..
The "White Imperialist Israel"?..Sorry. No cigar. They were controlled by Jordan and Egypt.
THEY built the "refugee' camps to throw their own brothers and sisters in.
Now that sounds like racism and apartheid to me.

The only reason "the refugee" problem is Israel's to begin with is due to yet another war waged against her in 1967. Despite that- Israel shelled out millions for their "inherited A-rab population" in medical, housing and educational needs alone.
Bear in mind, dear readers , there are 22 A-rab States ...doing less than nothing to ameliorate the very "refugee" problem they created.

Sorry if the facts don't offer the sanctuary of political correctness.

GaG Order for CarteR

They're angry, they're motivated, and they say their voices are going to be heard: A conservative, pro-military group has launched an effort to have former President Jimmy Carter censured by Congress.
Group Seeks to Censure Jimmy CarterThat effort includes a CensureCarter website, ( Censure Carter )-which includes photos of Carter with various dictators and terrorists. Next week, Move America Forward said it will unveil a television ad campaign to spread the word about the effort to censure Carter.

"...Carter has attacked American foreign policy in North Korea while praising that nation's brutal dictator; he has attacked American foreign policy in Cuba while propping up "the murderous thug, Fidel Castro." And now Carter is condemning American and Israeli policies against terrorism while urging support for the terrorist organization, Hamas.

A non-binding censure resolution serves as a Congressional reprimand, and can be issued against either a sitting or former president or other political leader.

There is a growing constituency of Americans who have had enough of "Blame America First" politicians hurting our nation and the important missions being served by our troops in the fight against terrorism,"

Censure is in essence a process of Congressional reprimand, namely the political equivalent of a strongly-worded letter. Less severe than outright expulsion, a censure, otherwise known as condemnation or denouncement- is a formal statement of disapproval, which can have a powerful psychological effect.

Perhaps Carter only influences those of a weak mind who are susceptible and vulnerable to his pathological, anti-American and anti-Semitic lies. But he clearly needs to jolted back into reality.
Perhaps his senses have been temporarily disabled, or his mind unable to grasp the consequences of his words.

It is widely known that all spiritual teachers have uniformly recommended "the practice of silence."
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue" (Proverbs 18:21).

It is high time to remove that power from Jimmy Carter.

Stop the ACLU has the latest on Feingold’s Censure Army.

FooD For ThoughT?

What's the first thing that springs to mind when I say : FOOD?

A plate of pleasure with guilt to follow has some insights.

"Guilt about the pleasure of eating is nothing new, and if diet gurus sound almost evangelical, there's a very good reason for it.
..although cloaked in the language of science and nutrition, prevailing Western preoccupations with diet, self-control and the body stretch back...to antiquity.

Clearly people find pleasure in eating foods, but pleasure challenges self-control, and pleasure has a long history in our culture of being highly problematic because it challenges reason and logic - what you're doing is caving in to bodily and hedonistic senses."

Let's face it. Food = Pleasure (at least for most people I know, or at least the ones willing to admit it..Heh)

Do you eat for "pleasure" or just for its dietary benefit. (Yea...Rrrrrright..Heh)

The pleasure of food is the sensation of well-being that derives from the fulfillment of a basic natural instinct.
What many don't realize is that the pleasure we get from food is not only physical sensation, but emotional and psychological as well.

But..What to eat?
Bland rice cake or rich, decadent brownie?


Do you monitor the content or gobble down the gummie bears?

Do you consume more if the food is attractively presented?
Do you appreciate food for its its "ritualistic value"...dinner with the family at 6.
Is the only food you can eat without guilt a celery stalk or carrot stick?
Do ya feel "deprived" if you don't have your "favorite" dish or dessert?

Some find the ultimate pleasure in eating the creations of a well-known chef, whereas others enjoy the emotions associated with a "home cooked meal" by a loved one.
Historically, food has also been a way to cope with stress...Ice-cream anyone?

Try as we may to avoid it, so much of our social life revolves around food.

So g'head, indulge that appetite, but don't forget to give thanks to the One who gave you the glory of this simple pleasure.

CA-IR Doesn't CARE

"What does the Council on American-Is-lamic Relations have to say about the trial of an Afghan Mus-lim who may get the death penalty for converting to Christianity? Nothing so far, noted a conservative, pro-family group.

"Ibr-ahim Hooper of the Council on American-Is-lamic Relations so far has been silent," the Family Research Council said in an email message on Tuesday."
Is-lamic Advocacy Group Silent on Afghan Apostasy Trial..they have more important concerns apparently....

"Some of CA-IR's leaders, along with other Mus-lims, met on Tuesday with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Karen Hughes and top officials of the National Security Council. But the meetings focused on outreach efforts to the Mus-lim world and "how to address growing levels of Islamophobia in the West," CA-IR said."

Rrrrrrrrrrrrrright..CA-IR can just check their integrity at the door.
They are at best a joke and circus sideshow. but at worst- the very Izzzzzzzlamic fundamentalist regime they purport to ahem...object to.

BrotherlY LovE eh?

Parents of son charged in beating may lose girl

This gives new meaning to the word "brother." An archived story:

"MADISON HEIGHTS -- The Oakland County Prosecutor's Office on Thursday will attempt to permanently end the parental rights of a Madison Heights couple who police say neglected to seek medical help for their daughter after her older brother allegedly beat her over her relationship with a non-Muzlim boy.
The 15-year-old girl, who is a Madison Heights Lamphere High junior, suffered a broken back in the beating, according to court documents.

She complained of the injury to her parents, but they didn't take her to a doctor because they condoned the punishment her brother gave her," said Robert Zivian, an assistant Oakland County prosecuting attorney assigned to the neglect case.

The following day, when the girl was still complaining of injuries, her parents called for an ambulance, according to Madison Heights Police Detective Sgt. Ron Hillman.

She was in a lot of pain, and when she eventually went back to school, it was in a wheelchair, Hillman said. It was too painful for her to stand for any period of time.

The girl initially told hospital workers she fell, Hillman said. After being questioned by police, she admitted that her brother had beaten her because he was upset over her relationship with a boy who was not of their religious faith, Hillman said.

She wrote me a two-page statement about how both her brother and her parents disapproved of the situation," he said. "She wrote that's what prompted the beating in the first place."

Now she is recanting the original story and also claiming she fell down some stairs," Zivian said."

Violence can shatter your life in many ways. In our culture most often the violent person who punches, kicks, rapes, and mutilates women is a husband, former husband, boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend.
One of the first pieces of advice offered to victims of violence is to seek help from other family members and friends or community organizations.
A brother perhaps?
Big brothers are the ones who protect their little sisters from the "bad boys" aren't they?

Perhaps Muzlims need to have some new words put into their vocabularies: Umm...this is called ABUSE:
physical abuse.
psychological or emotional abuse.
sexual assault.
(and ..it's a crime not to mention a violation of human rights.)

To say that this religion and culture don't legitimize and therefore perpetuate violence against women is a bold faced lie. This story is no isolated "incident".
The fact is- Muzlim women all over the globe live in an atmosphere of terror, which often permeates abusive relationships.

Contary to the mythical liberal notion, we cannot transform the cultural, social, and legal environment in the Muzlim community that gives rise to and condones widespread violence against women.
It would require long-term commitment and strategies involving all parts of their government and society.
Only when women are viewed as equal members of society will violence against them longer be an invisible norm but, instead, a shocking aberration.

And when praytell will that happen?

Ilegals Again?

Illegals involved in crashes, traffic stops, say authorities

My buddy David is jus gunna loveeeeeeeeee this one!

"Four vehicles loaded with 42 suspected illegal immigrants were involved in separate accidents early today on highways in Eastern Colorado, authorities say. Two other vehicles were stopped on the Western Slope, with more suspected illegal immigrants inside.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in the process of arresting each of the suspected illegal immigrants, Wynn said.

At 6:35 a.m., a 1995 Ford Econoline carrying 16 people rolled on U.S. Highway 6 near Brush. No one was injured in the accident and all 16 occupants were taken into custody by immigration officials, Master Trooper Ron Watkins said.

At 7:11 a.m. on Interstate-70 near Seibert, a Chevy Suburban rolled with 10 occupants aboard.

At 8:03 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush a 1999 Chevy Suburban rolled with four occupants. Some of the passengers had minor injuries, but no one was taken to a hospital, Watkins said

At 8:19 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush, a 1998 GMC van with 12 occupants rolled. No one was injured, he said.

The series of accidents happened as a stream of illegal immigrants are entering the U.S., mostly from Mexico, at the beginning of the growing season, Wynn said."

OK...May I delicately point out:

Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or

Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.

Illegal Immigration is a Crime
"Apologists for illegal immigration like to paint it as a victimless crime. But in fact, illegal immigration causes substantial harm to American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population--the poor, minorities, and children.

Illegal immigration causes an enormous drain on public funds. The seminal study of the costs of immigration by the National Academy of Sciences found that the taxes paid by immigrants do not cover the cost of services received by them. We cannot provide high quality education, health care, and retirement security for our own people if we continue to bring in endless numbers of poor, unskilled immigrants."

Well, ya best buckle yer seat belts now...they're on the roads...and from the way it looks...it's gunna be one bumpy ride.

An AmericaN SoldieR

Coast Guard.
An American Soldier.

They stand tall, take an oath and Swear, "To protect and serve."
Yet some of us feel they never quite get the praise that they deserve.

Some of us speak up for the American Soldier, one of the most generous and possibly the least appreciated person on all the earth.

This is my attempt in a small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrifice themselves for us.
Some whose fates are still unknown and some- still waiting, to come home.

As some of my buddies know, I have had the blessing to work with soldiers returning from Iraq as well as their families. Make no mistake, my friends, we stand now at a critical moment in the history of our civilization, beset by enemies who irrationally embrace their own destruction along with ours...and yet our fate lies in the hands of the American soldier.

As some of you know Blue Star Chronicles dedicate themselves to honor and even whip up local support for our men and women in the United States Armed Forces.

Let's give them some 'muscle' shall we.

Check out Stop the ACLU for an analysis of President Bush's speech and reactions.

ChinA and IndiA's LegacY of HatE and MurdeR

S'cuse me while I hurl.

Too many boys enlightens us..

"Twenty years ago, the ultrasound scanning machine came into widespread use in Asia. The invention of Dr. Macovski, a Stanford University researcher, the device quickly gave pregnant women a cheap and readily available means to determine the sex of their unborn children.

The results, by the millions, are now coming to maturity in Bangladesh, China, India and Taiwan. By choosing to give birth to males – and to abort females – millions of Asian parents have propelled the region into an extraordinary experiment in the social effects of gender imbalance.

China, India and other nations have outlawed the use of prenatal diagnostic techniques to select the sex of an unborn child. But bribery and human ingenuity have made it easy for prospective parents to skirt the law; a suitably compensated ultrasound technician need only smile or frown at the expectant mother.

Women now risk being kidnapped and forced into prostitution and wedlock. Mass sexual frustration is adding a potent ingredient to an increasingly volatile regional cocktail of problems that include surging economic growth, urbanization, drug abuse and environmental degradation.

Understanding the effect of the testosterone overload may be most important in China, the rising Asian superpower. Prompted by expert warnings, the Chinese authorities are already groping for answers.

In 2004, President Hu Jintao asked the country's senior demographers to study whether the country's one-child policy – which sharply accentuates the preference for males – should be revised.

In 19th-century northern China, drought, famine and locust invasions apparently provoked a rash of female infanticide.

Some Chinese experts speculate, off the record, that there might be a connection between the shortage of women and the spread of open gay life since 2001, when homosexuality was deleted from the official "Classification of Mental Disorders." It is possible to dream up all kinds of scenarios: Mumbai and Shanghai may soon rival San Francisco as gay capitals.

More likely, the organized crime networks that traffic in women will shift their deliveries toward Asia and build a brothel culture large enough to satisfy millions of sexually frustrated young men."

Deeeeeeeeeeep breath.
OK, Let me get this straight.
In Asia- Women are needed for one thing only: to assume the role of stimulators of men's visual and sexual interest. Just like in the pornography industry- women exist solely to fulfill men's desires -- they have no real substance of their own. To see anyone as existing only to serve you and to fulfill you is, one of the worst forms of dehumanization.

These ahem.."men', for lack of a better term.. can value and appreciate the physical characteristics of women but ignore her personal "being" or any of the inner complexities that are inherent in human beings. She is therefore: disposable.
This hatred, scorn, hostility and animosity is so strong that mothers kill off their own baby daughters.

It is the absence of all compassion, the absence of a recognition of even a common humanity for "girls".

Thus, Women should be allowed to live when sexually expedient but murdered before they are even born if they are deemed "of no use." After all they are nothing more than a collection of body parts.

But how ironic?..

The fact these very same "men" now need women for sex.. apparently feels quite disempowering (particulary since they killed off all the girls..and can't seem to "get some")..which only adds to the anger and resentment these muderers and misogynists feel thus justifying forced prostitution, sexual slavery and lives of endless Hell and torture for thousands of girls and women.

What I'd like to know is: Where are the women and men demanding accountability for these mass murders?
And..when Is Hollywood putting out this movie..and who is the leading role?

Guard the Borders Blogburst

From :Guard the Borders:


On Thursday, March 16, the Senate Judiciary Committee told their staff to meet behind closed doors to construct an immigration bill that would include provisions from the Kennedy-McCain bill. Known as S. 1033, the McCain-Kennedy bill includes an amnesty for illegal aliens, a massive "guest" worker program that leads to citizenship, and an estimated one million additional permanent immigrants each year.

Millions of illegals to become citizens?

Kennedy-McCain immigration reform bill likely to pass Senate committee after recess

A bill that would give millions of illegal aliens in the United States the opportunity to earn citizenship is closer to becoming law today as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee signaled likely passage of a proposal by Sens. Edward Kenney, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz.

Though a committee vote will not be held until after a week-long congressional recess, likely March 27, committee members appeared ready to back the Kennedy-McCain bill.

"The votes are there," said Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.

Congress is working to pass a reform bill that includes enforcement, a policy on dealing with illegals already in the country and a guest-worker program pushed by President Bush.

Under the legislation, illegal aliens in the United States would obtain six-year nonimmigrant visas under which they could work in the country and travel outside the country. The aliens would have to pay a $1,000 fine and undergo background checks.

After six years, the aliens would be able to meet certain requirements and then apply for a green card, or permanent residency.

Besides voting on the bill after the recess, committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said the panel also would vote on a bill by Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., that would give illegal aliens up to five years to leave the U.S. After returning home, they could then apply to return, either as temporary workers or for permanent residency.

"Our intention is not to strand anyone outside the country," Kyl said, according to an AP report. But he asserted the McCain-Kennedy plan would give an illegal alien allowed to stay and work in the country a "huge advantage" over a person having to wait for years in his or her own country for a green card.

The McCain-Kennedy bill would start off with offering 400,000 of the new visas.

To compare the various bills please click here to view a .pdf chart created by NumbersUSA.org. You will be able to see for yourself that what the spin-meisters are telling us about the various bills clearly does NOT match the actual provisions of the bills themselves.

Although Sens. McCain and Kennedy adamantly deny that S. 1033 is an amnesty for illegal aliens, it clearly spells out a path to jobs and residency for illegal aliens. Among the significant immigration-increase provisions of the bill are: a new visa category (H-5A) for 400,000 low-skill foreign workers (this cap can be adjusted upwards); a new temporary 6-year visa category (H-5B) for illegal aliens (and their spouses and children) already in the country; an amnesty for illegal aliens who apply for an H-5B visa and pay a $2,000 fine; a provision for the H-5A temporary workers to apply for permanent resident status after four years; and an exemption of immediate relatives (spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens) from the annual level of 480,000 family-sponsored immigrant visas thereby providing additional visas to the family preference categories.

Supporters claim S. 1033 contains measures to increase border security, yet it contains virtually no such provisions. Aside from creating a Border Security Committee and requiring a few reports, the main "enforcement" provisions are aimed at helping Mexico control its borders!! S. 1033 does, however, require machine-readable immigration documents, and create a new electronic work authorization system that would eventually replace the current "I-9" system. S. 1033 would require the federal government to reimburse states for the cost of providing emergency health care to H-5A and H-5B workers.

Aside from the fact that any guest worker plan would be nothing more than a disastrous amnesty deal tied with a big red bow for lawbreakers, there is another reason to reject it: Our government can’t handle it!

Our government is not capable of handling roughly 13-20 million temporary worker applications when our illegal alien population suddenly becomes eligible through guest worker legislation - USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service) simply cannot handle the administration overload it already has. The only solution would be to massively increase the government. The link above outlines a report from the GAO that shows how the USCIS is already irrevocably buried under a backlog of immigration adjudication. It's a whole other perspective on the various administrative amnesties proposed by the Senate. Mundane? Perhaps. Crucial to the overall scope and size of our bloated and sprawling federal government? Absolutely.

SilencE is GoldeN...or is It?

Mus-lim Woman Sparks Debate With 'Apartheid' Remarks

"Malaysia is considered one of the most moderate nations in the Mus-lim world, but the daughter of a former prime minister has sparked a row by comparing discrimination against Mus-lim women in her country with the treatment of black South Africans under apartheid.

As non-Mus-lim women catch up with women in the rest of the world, Mus-lim women here are only going backwards," Marina Mahathir wrote in a newspaper column.

Mahathir, a women's rights and HIV/AIDS campaigner, was referring to new family laws that will make it easier for Muzlim men in Malaysia to take multiple wives and claim property after divorce.

Under Izlamic law (sha-ri'a), Malaysian Muzlim men already are allowed up to four wives. But the new legislation will give them more rights to claim assets after divorcing a wife, to seize property belonging to existing wives, and lessen their obligation to pay maintenance.

Organizations that came out against the proposals were attacked for promoting "western"-style gender equality, and parliament passed the legislation at the end of last year.

In multi-ethnic Malaysia, where Muzlims comprise about 60 percent of the population, the proposed new laws will only apply to Muzlims.

Mahathir wrote that, more than a decade after apartheid had ended in South Africa, an "insidious" form of discrimination was developing in Malaysia, between Muzlim and non-Muzlim women.
The article was due for publication last Wednesday, International Women's Day, but The Star newspaper - for which she has long been a regular columnist - held it because of the controversial content.

Mahathir then published it on the Internet, with a note saying: "For the first time in some 17 years, The Star is refusing to publish my column ... they said that the powers-that-be there think it's too tough on the government and it's not the right platform etc."
The column eventually was published on Friday."

Here we go again:
The ongoing struggle between two irreconcilable value systems, one based on the Enlightenment tradition, the other clinging to religious dogma which it freely imposes upon its citizens, particularly its female ones.
Not only are they political aggressive,-holding publication of the article, but to add insult to injury they are culturally arrogant about it.

Lest we forget, we are dealing with a religion which does not recognize any separation of politics and religion.
This has always been so and in case your'e wondering.. will always be. It is the very nature of the religion.

In their framework of government, Al-ah has all the power...not the "people", not the "courts", not a document written by forefathers. The Qu-r'an, is always taken literally. Those words are considered to be the actual words of their God and can therefore, never be altered. There will be no "amendments"...trust me.

And yet again they promote a restrictive theocratic view of human relations and world politics, trying to silence a remark by a Muzlim woman, because "the powers that be" deem: it sends a wrong message to the world."

And needless to say-THEY always know best. Don't they?
