North Korea begs for decimation

Isn’t it interesting that the North Koreans are trying to claim that T-Rump declared war? I am guessing that the supreme leader does not allow for education, let alone the subject of history.

It was after all the North Koreans that declared war by invading South Korea on June 25th, 1950.

That painful war, dragged on until July 27th, 1950 when they signed an armistice, not a peace treaty, but an armistice bringing an end to the fighting.

On at least six occasions, the North Koreans had backed out of the armistice. Obviously I do not want to see nuclear arms in play. Even in the “good guys’” hands, they are a terrible idea. But when a psychopath controls them (yes, in this case, both sides) it is a scary situation.

I am not normally a hawk, but it may be time to finish this one. The current regime appears to be hell bent to see some action. I am not saying that T-Rump is not without fault. The Hyper-Tweeting Orangutan has been bickering with Kim Jong Un like a school kid. If it were just saber rattling, we could just move on as long as the war does not heat back up. The events that led me to believe that we should bring this chapter to a decisive conclusion is that Kim Fatty the Third keeps escalating his testing of weapons that put millions/billions at risk.

It is time for us to make Kim yell out: 이런 벙커 버스터는 어디서 나온거야? (Holy shit, where did all of the bunker busters come from?)

 

Ferguson, yes I have views too

So the world has been watching to see where this went.

Before I begin, I was not there, nor was I in the grand jury, so I know only what the public knows.

I am in a different camp than Wil Wheaton, and others. I am probably in the minority of Anonymous, as the vocal side is stomping their feet that this was such a travesty.

I do not know what factors told the officer that deadly force was the best reaction.  Perhaps he SHOULD have used a non-lethal.

Am I racist? no, will I be called racist, could be.

We knew that the chance was high that there was going to be trouble either way tonight.  How many riots or destruction has occurred after winning a pro ball game or hockey game? People get overly excited and lose their common sense.

The bottom line is that the grand jury did not see enough to compel ANY of them to put forth charges. Not ONE!

We know from the strong arm robbery shortly before his death, that he was not in his right mind. He may have been kind and gentle normally, but not that day.

Sorry, this was blown way out of proportion, and most of us knew it in August. So much money and time spent. I will not call it it a waste, because our society seemed to feel the need for it to be intense. So be it.

We also knew in August that the masses were no going to accept the outcome.

Now it will go to a civil case where you don’t really have to prove a case. At least not anywhere near as conclusively.

God help those who have been directly impacted; family, friends, the community, even the police…

To those protesting: Please do not rip up your communities…

Interesting Reading for the Fourth of July

Do you know how many times God is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Once.

Just so nobody thinks that I am taking it out of context:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation. ”

Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is much more than just God. That is is the equivilent to god, leaving all faiths open. IN fact Nature’s God coule be interpreted to be much closer to Pagans than Chistians. Funny thing isn’t it?

 

How many times does God appear in the Constitution? Zero.
How about the Bill of Rights, is he there? Nope.
How many times does God show up in the Articles of Confederation? Zero.

For a nation that some feel was founded on God, the supporting documents just aren’t there.

Now a country founded on the belief that ALL should be able to practice the religion of their choosing, that is all over the place. The First Amendment does a good job if putting that out there for us.

Amnesty vs Path to Citizenship – We Cannot Afford Either

We have seen the fight between the politicians and the citizenry over the issue of illegals.

I am not going to with some wimp assed semantecs over illegal vs undocumented alien. Other than to call them what they are; aliens who are here illegally, hence the phrase.

So we have an estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the country.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I do not care what country they come from. I am not a racist… I just want them to arrive legally.

Before you even start with the whole stupid line of remarks about how white people were the first illegals let’s get this out of the way too.

Even the “Native Americans” (hereafter referred to as Indians (that is another topic)) came here from another continent.

There were no immigration laws until there was a government who saw need for them.

When the economy is strong, we tend to take a more lazaire faire attitude. If it isn’t posing us a direct financial impact we let it slide.

With our household finances, when times get tight we have to find ways to save (those who are smarter don’t feed the pig to begin with) money wherever we can.

Now the government on the other hand when faced with this doesn’t seem to notice the needs changing. They just keep spending and giving stuff away. Money that is not THEIRS to give. It is ours for them to look after. We have entrusted it to them.

11 millions people inside the country illegally; some just over stayed their visas, others came in illegally to begin with.

Our government has chosen to bring in people for high tech jobs with claims that we don;t have viable candidates locally. This year they are giving more visas than their are jobs for. Shit we even have high tech visas for ENTRY LEVEL positions… wait what?!? for every level? Isn’t the definition of entry level a position that a beginner can do?  Are they expecting us to believe that we don’t have some high school grads that cannot fill those jobs? Does’;t corporate America have a responsibility to have a pathway to employment? (well the phrase works for illegals right?) Why should business think that they can just decide that they hire experts only for every role. Sure you want experts… train them.

Unemployment has been bad, and devastating in the teen markets. They don’t need more hurdles thrown in their way.

Corporate America is wanting the moon, but only wanting to pay for a model rocket, or perhaps a stomp rocket. Corporate America feel that they should set the job requirements for college degrees for (seemingly) an job within their organizations. I am not knocking upper education, as it is a wonderful thing, but is it really required? Don’t you think that life education can count for something? I have over 30 certifications from Microsoft (and others) but they do not equal a college degree to an employer. can a brand new college graduate do all that I can? Sure after they have a long time in the field like I have. My experience truly includes blood, sweat and tears.

So since corporate America wants to push for the education, do they bolster the student loans? How about push for lower tuition and books? no, no no… that would make too much sense. They choose to grant in state tuition for criminals who slipped into this county in a variety of ways.  Now some kids, were dragged along as baggage… As a dear friend said (as best as I remember) if a dad steam a car and gives it to their teenager, does the teenager get to keep it? NO! It is still a stolen car.

Where else are illegals costing us?

Medical costs are debatable, but I think that if you are not supposed to be here, then we should not have to pay. If my license to drive has been suspended and I drive anyway, resulting in an my being rear ended who is at fault? Me, for being on the road in the first place.  The same principle applies doesn’t it?,

Aren’t we spending too much on translation services?

With all of these extra costs, they want to give green cards to everyone here that didn’t come the right way.

That just spits in the faces of all of those who did do the right thing in their path to become Americans.

We have a solid pathway to citizenship already.

http://www.uscis.gov/greencard

If a person has a green card, I am quite happy to help with getting through the test, improving language skills, etc..

Would another amnesty help? Sure, those that can start working above the table, could start working towards a retirement. Politicians who were able to stand there and say that they helped the illegals get legal… sure they would be better off as long as the newly legal  made it worth their wile to cover the loss of those who opposed their actions.  Would farmers prosper? they would have to start doing things legally themselves.  They already should be… but we know the truth.

We cannot harbor criminals.

We cannot afford it

We cannot keep doing this.

We cannot.

 

Dog the Bounty Hunter, the latest threat against Snowden

Dog the Bounty Hunter has sworn to bring Snowden back to American, though what ever illegal means he can find.

http://www.chronicle.su/news/dog-the-bounty-hunter-to-pursue-snowden-bounty/

And just who has offered a billion dollar reward for his return? The government isn’t allowed to hire mercenaries or brake international law in pursuit of the accused, so who is backing this?

Counter Protest in Washington State

Good morning all!

Tomorrow I will be participating in a counter protest against Senate Bill S. 744. Since I cannot make it to Seattle, I will be part of the presence in Vancouver at Officer’s Row.

I am choosing to use my time and large physical presence to speak instead of my wallet.

You will find the original alert that went out from Washingtonian for Immigration Reform and RespectWashington.us.

Sorry for the short notice, but I just found out about it yesterday and my PTO has been approved.

TO: All WFIR Members and Supporters:

 

Friday, June 7th is the last day that we can hold a counter protest to S. 744 before the Senate votes on it on June 10th.

 

This email is twofold and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can participate in one or the other of these two events.

 

PRESSURE!     PRESSURE!     PRESSURE,  WE MUST KEEP THE PRESSURE ON TO   THE PASSAGE OF S. 744, AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS…..

 

 

(1) Washingtonians for Immigration Reform and RespectWashington.us would like to hold a Counter PROTEST against S. 744, the “Gang of Eights”

amnesty for illegal aliens if enough members are willing to come forward and stand on the line in opposition to S. 744

 

Where:  U.S. Federal Building

915 – 2nd Ave.  (Between Marion St. & Madison St.)

Seattle, WA 98104

When:   Friday, June 7, 2013

If you will attend this protest at the Federal Bldg., Seattle, on Friday, June 7, 2013, please respond to this email

stating that you will attend.

 

WE NEED A VERY LARGE TURNOUT TO MAKE THIS PROTEST EFFECTIVE….. If we do not get enough volunteers,

the protest will not make an impact and will show our elected people that the opposition to amnesty is just not there

and they will win the battle and they will pass amnesty.

 

This PROTEST will only work if we have many, many bodies on the Protest line.

 

 

 

AMNESTY.. VOLUNTEER TO JOIN THE PROTEST ON FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2013

Bring a sign or Flag.  Some suggestions for signs:

 

Please, DO NOT USE PROFANITY on your signs.

 

NO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

NO AMNESTY, NO CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

OPPOSE S. 744 AND AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

SECURE THE BORDER / NO AMNESTY.

DO NOT REWARD LAW BREAKERS – VOTE NO AGAINST S. 744

 

(2) The second part of this day’s activity is to hit every district office of our 2 Senators and 10 Congressmen/women in the state to make it clear

to them and their staff(s) that a vast majority of citizens are adamantly opposed to the “Gang of Eights” S. 744 amnesty for illegal aliens.

 

(SPECIAL NOTE) There will be a petition sent out in the next few days for everyone to copy and paste or print out to take to their local offices.

We need a point man/woman in each congressional city/district listed below to coordinate delivering this petition to each of the following offices.

Please let me know if you will be the point man/woman.

 

To make it easy for you to determine which Senator / Representatives district offices you should visit, listed below are all locations with addresses.

 

(Note:  Some Senators and Reps. offices are in the same building in some cities which will make it easier for you to visit both of them on the same day.)

States and Nullification of Enforcement of Federal Laws

Does anyone else see this trend of states getting fed up with the federal government and enacting legislation (or coming close to anyway) that nullifies federal laws?

I find it interesting but a little unnerving.

Does this bring us closer to my concerns of civil unrest or rebellion?

  • More than a dozen state may be nullifying Obama Care
  • Missouri – The governor has a bill to consider nullification of federal gun laws
  • Kansas (and others)- passed a law that guns made and owned in Kansas were exempt from federal firearms laws
  • Washington and Colorado legalized recreational marijuana possession and use.
  • Washington legalizes gay marriage
  • Pennsylvania –  may be nullifying federal bans on some weapons and ammunition
  • or even the opposite, states try to help the feds by trying to enforce voting or immigration law and the feds can’t permit THAT.

I am sure that there are other examples.

So if states won’t enforce the federal laws, then I guess the feds will have to ramp up their staffing to be able to enforce their own laws.. What a concept.

At some point, the federal government went feral and now the states have decided that they need to take back some of their domain.

Do we see an end to this? What other areas will states start to take back?

How will the feds compensate for their losses in power?
The federal government need to constrict its size and power.

Will they have a flippin’ temper tantrum and over-react?

.

Amending amendments

I am curious about the process and authority of altering amendments.

The process of making an amendment is pretty well known and not the easiest of tasks.

We have seen them get pretty well gutted, by legislation and the court, but I am wondering more of HOW they get screwed with.

The First Amendment is pretty clear, but yet we have thrashed over the years.

 

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

We know that religion is not is not really free in this country, nor is speech, the press has quit being an investigative tool. People’s rights to peaceably assemble has been nipped, and what is the federal petition process?

 

Some of this is cultural, but most of it has been the government just fucking us over, left and right.

BTW: for today we are containing this to the First Amendment.

And we’re on to our next challenge!

Seems North Korea is at it again.

And I will reiterate the last paragraph;
When an unstable communist dictator openly threatens to nuke you, what is the proper response. I’m especially interested in the opinion of left-wingers who reflexively dismiss any sort of aggressive response as only making the situation worse. Fine. What would you do? Pay them a king’s ransom? Ignore them and pray they’re not serious? Go to the Chinese (you might want to bring some money, since we owe them a little) and ask them to get the kid under control?

 

Being moderate, I try to steer away from total destruction. And I’d like to see us (the US) get out of other countries’ business, but this time it is a direct threat on us. We invaded the middle east because of an indirect threat, what will we do to counter this direct threat?
