In Seattle, Washington, the Port of Longview experienced a violent, armed attack Thursday, Sept. 8, 2011, from 500 terrorists. (1)With the security detail overrun and held captive, private property was vandalized, and trains were sabotaged, with no shots fired in defense of the Port or the men themselves.There were no arrests, nor public response from Homeland Security.Why not?There is Doug Averett, the Director of Operations for the port, who also serves as the Facility Security Officer of the Port, whose duties include carrying out the responsibilities for Homeland Security. Half a million dollars have been spent in security upgrades since 2001, 80% of it from Homeland Security grants. (2)You would think those responsibilities would include keeping the facility secure, and protecting the cargo and equipment. You would think.I don’t know what type of training Janet Napolitano had this fellow attend, nor how much it cost the American taxpayer. Whatever it is, it was all wasted, as evidenced by the lack of a pile of terrorist bodies at the gate of the facility, and strewn throughout the grounds.Why wasn’t he fired first thing this morning?The fact that hundreds of violent saboteurs made their way safely into the facility, and the entire security staff was cowed and surrendered without firing a shot, shows just how protected Homeland Security has made us, under the guidance of an ignorant, lying, inexperienced “security” expert, “Big Sis” Napolitano.Is CAIR paying attention?Are they currently organizing their terrorists to mimic the unions terrorist tactics? Are they, at this very moment, getting their Muslim Brotherhood sponsors prepared to make a similar attack against a wide open Port of entry to America?They don’t even need bombs or guns, just proud American Union signs, like, “Workers of the World, Unite,” (3), and, “Take Out the Sons Of Bitches,” (4), and the so-called security team will immediately surrender.These violent, criminal union thugs, unopposed, took over a United States Port in minutes.The surrender, in the face of threats by men armed with baseball bats, of at least one law enforcement officer, presumably armed with a weapon capable of taking out at least 6 people, (which would have immediately scattered the rest of the cowards), must make all his law enforcement brothers feel warm and tingly inside. (5)We know these terrorists committed sabotage, cutting the brakes on boxcars and dumping over 70 freight cars of grain along the tracks.That is what we know they did, but what else did they do while in control of the port? Did they assist in getting weapons on or off a ship in the riot? Did they use the chaos to move drugs in or out of the port?Does anyone doubt that today’s union members wouldn’t destroy everything any American has, if it meant an extra dollar in their bloated pension?Is this the security offered and accepted by the obama-Napolitano Department of Homeland Security?I don’t know about you, but I’m not impressed.
There is an article, (1), today, (Sept. 2, 2011), in something called the SB Nation, about a Presidential invitation extended to a group of NASCAR drivers, and bemoaning the fact that 5 of the group have declined the invitations, citing scheduling conflicts.
The writer, a Mr. Jeff Gluck, is beside himself, stating in a snarky manner that these drivers must be very busy, not to want to meet with the leader of the “Free World”, and implying they should do so regardless of political affiliation.
He states that any sponsors or other appointments they may have should be rescheduled, because, (and he uses italics because he is SOOO right), we’re talking about the president of the United States.
Mr. Gluck goes so far as to throw the Patriotism of NASCAR as a whole into the mix, claiming a reaction like this from American citizens is, in his word, “strange.”
Lets address some of this. Pay attention now, Mr. Gluck:
You think any Americans, regardless of how they feel about a president that is the antithesis of what they feel, should allow themselves to be used as puppets to help the president that is the antithesis of how they feel, get elected.
You think, as this Royal president thinks, that his mere initiating a meeting with Americans, whether they be unelected citizens, like NASCAR drivers, or elected representatives, like Congress, should immediately be met with total acquiescence, or you cast aspersions on their patriotism.
Mr. Gluck, no President has the authority, (as we have just seen with this presidents attempt to bully a co-equal branch of Government into a meeting when they had other plans), (2), to order any citizen to appear, or should have the expectation that any citizen has an obligation to appear, because he has invited them, or planned a meeting without consulting them.
Certainly, no citizen has an obligation to stand next to someone who over the last 2 years, has done everything he can to destroy the industry they depend on for their livelihood.
You see, Mr. Gluck, NASCAR represents success, not failure. GM is a failed union retirement industry, making cars on the side, cars that no one wants, leading them to the brink of a (deserved) bankruptcy.
No winner wants to be seen with a person that rewards failure.
Now, I’m not saying that any of this is why they turned down the invitation of president obama. This is all conjecture on my part.
Maybe they just don’t want to be used in campaign photo ops as “token southerners.” That wasn’t right when blacks were used that way in the past, and shouldn’t be expected of NASCAR drivers, today.
As to your observation that seems to say that they should accept because this is from The Office Of The Presidency, well, I bet if they wait for this president to go on the road, they would be happy to visit the Presidencial Office, for which I’m sure they have an abundance of respect.
Hewlett-Packard Motto “Selling Chinese Garbage To Americans, Paying Foreigners To Tell Them It’s OK”
Just a note to anyone who is thinking of buying a Hewlett-Packard product.
DON’T DO IT! You and your family will be much better of without the incredible amount of frustration and aggravation that will reign down upon you, should you buy a new Hewlett-Packard “Piece Of Excrement.”
Do yourself a big favor, unless your idea of a good time is buying a product that will immediately cease to work, after the incredible workload of three, that’s 3, copies in 3 months! Having, of course, to uninstall and re-install it both times, after the initial installation.
I realize it might be considered unreasonable for anyone to think such a workload could be handled by a new Hewlett-Packard machine, an Officejet 4500, which will be refered to for the rest of this article as what it is, a “PIECE OF Excrement”, or, “POE.”
If you have money and time to waste, by all means buy a new Hewlett-Packard “POE”. I can tell you what you can look forward to. Once you have made the biggest mistake of your life, putting you and your family’s peace of mind at terrible risk, you can immediately start making trips to your local Fed-ex Kinkos to make copies and pick up your re-directed faxes, the ones your new Hewlett-Packard “POE” at home won’t send or receive.
Hewlett-Packard does try and make the world a smaller place, by introducing you to many fine people around the world, some of whom can actually be understood if you ask them to speak real slow. Somehow, they have managed to pay these people from anywhere in the world but America, to try and teach you, in your hours of interactions with them, how to build a (printer, computer, or whatever Hewlett-Packard “POE” you have been unfortunate enough to purchase).
Somehow, after spending hours of your time, and being driven to the limits of your patience, (your family really enjoys this part, watching you fight with a new Hewlett-Packard “POE,” trying to find ways to avoid contact with you, as you explode when the foreign tech asks incredibly stupid questions like, “Is it plugged in? Is it turned on?” Or, after it breaks down again, (it only works when the tech is on the phone, after a minimum of an hour. As soon as they are gone, the new Hewlett-Packard “POE” stops working, forcing another fun call, where you will be told, “It says here it worked after the last call, so it works.”
Even the foreign techs realize how much fun it is to call them over and over, so they think they have to weed out the purely pleasure calls to find the ones that concern a repeated breakdown of the Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Excrement.”
You get the idea. Hewlett-Packard is in business to steal your money selling sub-par Chinese “Pieces of Excrement,” so they can redistribute your hard earned money around the world to foreigners, for much less then they take in selling the new Hewlett-Packard “Pieces Of Excrement”, making a fortune on the difference.
So, if you want to meet new people from around the world, and alienate and scare your friends and family once you have been driven to anger and frustration by a Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Ecrement,” then by all means purchase a Hewlett-Packard “Piece Of Excrement.”
If you actually want to print or send documents, or any of the normal acts associated with computers, avoid them, (Hewlet-Packards “Pieces of Excrement”), at all costs.
Pardon me,as I download this to a memory stick on my computer, right here next to my Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Excrement”, so I can go back to Fedex Kinkos, print copies to mail to friends without computers, and fax this to the Hewlett-Packard Headquarters, which happens to be in Palo Alto California.
This has been a public service announcement.
I hope, at this point, we can all agree that the greatest enemy to our Representative form of government is “Bi-partisanship.” After this recent debate over the raising of the Debt Limit, and the successful screwing of the taxpayer yet again, it is clear that “Bi-partisanship” just leads to deals being made so egotistic politicians can say they made a deal.
I, for one, do not want my Congressional Representative, the person I picked to speak for me in Washington due to their stated beliefs, to give up those beliefs for the Politically Correct label of “Bi-partisan.”
I don’t want someone who claims to be for smaller government and less spending, to agree with a plan, in my name, that spends 5 times more, in one day, than the spread-over 10 years, never gonna happen anyway, proposed cuts.
We have just handed obama and his America-hating progressive compatriots in the government, on both sides of the aisle, what they have wanted for the last hundred years. An automatic mechanism, attached to a bill designed to collapse the economic system, that will also decimate the military.
All the progressives have to do is hold up this “Special Committee” in Congress, (read: committee set up to cover the asses of cowardly politicians who refuse to stand up and make the hard decisions they were elected too make). By refusing to cut anything from their sacred cow entitlements, they will ensure the completion of their grand plan.
It is up to the voters to continue the fight we started last election cycle. At this point, many Independent voters are realizing these current economic policies have not worked, either here or anywhere in the world, at any time in history. Even many Democrat voters realize this country is on the way to financial disaster without radical changes in policy.
This is why Senator John Kerry, D., MA, (who, I believe, served in Viet Nam), finds it necessary to call for the censorship of ideas HE thinks are so incorrect, no one should face the potential harm they cause…(like getting 87 new people into one House of Congress).
We need to keep our principles, and elect those that do the same. Better no deal, on ideological lines of principle, than an ethically challenged, morally bankrupt bastardization of the principles of both sides, resulting in deals no principled person of either side believes in, and further eroding our faith in our own citizen-government’s ability to exist within the parameters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, created by and for “We The People,” and not, “We The Rulers.”
The only thing we won in the Debt Debate is a clear list of those we need to replace in Congress, as soon as possible.
Face it, our country has been working with a fraudulent credit rating for years. All of the rating companies ignored the unrelenting growth of our government, and even helped perpetrate the fraud by keeping the rating up while they knew we were packaging worthless bank loans into “derivitives,” giving their stamp of approval to Barney Frank and Chris Dodds expediting the collapse of the real estate market.
We came close to starting to solve our problem, but certain Republicans have got to be removed to make further progress. As soon as we can, Tom Coburn must be removed. He was ready to violate our promises to veterans, claiming billions could be saved by taking away their promised health care benefits. For that suggestion alone, he should be immediately recalled. 1) http://news.yahoo.com/american-legion-slams-veteran-unfriendly-coburn-proposal-cut-202104518.html
Mitch McConell, he of the “give my responsibility to anyone else but me” form of government, suggested giving all responsibility to a new, unconstitutional “super congress,” rather than stand his ground for what is right.
John McCain, the biggest fraud and liar in the Republican party, and the largest obstacle in the way of the Tea Party, proved once again he deserved to lose the Presidential election. It would be a close call as to who would actually have done more damage to the US, obama on his course now, or McCain and his lies. Of course, McCain supported McConnells attempts to screw Americans.
At least obama didn’t know how to keep his outrageous mendacities covered up as well as McCain, which allowed us to see how terrible he is for the country, leading to these public fights. McCain would have already given us open borders and more criminals invading America.
Every republican, every politician, who voted for this debt deal, which is another big government fraud and will cost us another 2.4 trillion dollars with nothing to show for it but the gutting of the defense department when the dems refuse to cut anything and the “trigger” is pulled, should be “primaried” and voted out. They need to be called out for the con they just pulled on the American people. They are like a roving “three-card monte” street game on a table in NYC. They just suckered us again, and now they have folded up their table and are moving on to the next suckers down the block. Unfortunately, every block they contaminate with their liberalism and theft hurts more Americans.
87 House republicans was a good start. Did they all vote “no?” If not, add them to the unemployment lines next election.
While we’re at it, we need to fire anyone claiming a problem with, “political purity.” Our government has been purely progressive for many years. We don’t want “bi-partisanship” from our representatives. We want them to stand on our American principles, and get the government out of our way.
Recently, my faith and optimism in America and her greatness, and her innate ability to rise above what nature and her enemies reign upon her, was restored. Not by some vainglorious political speech meant to portray the latest narcissist as the next coming, here to rescue us all. No, this humbling reminder came from friends, one of whom I’ve known for 22 some odd years, the other a mere 2 or three years. Most of America would consider these men “rednecks,” or “good ol Florida boys.” Neither of these men has ever had anything handed to them. They have worked, against the system that tries to destroy small businessmen, for everything they have, often being pummeled and bruised by the system.
I keep a 30 old motorhome on my buddies property, for when I visit him or am in transit to our production studios in Alabama. I recently stopped in on the way back from an Alabama trip, and spent a few days working in the garage on my bike.
While I was puttering around, I noticed my friends starting to collect a bunch of throwaway metal, waiting to be scrapped, and bringing it to the garage. They were especially interested in an old mobile home outside staircase railing. When they pulled out two 24 inch bicycle tires, I had to ask what they were up to.
It seems there is a young man in this out-in-the-woods neighborhood, about 15 to 21 years old. He has a slight speech problem, and might have a learning problem, although he was very polite when I met him, and he knew tools apart. He must be homeless, or, at the least very needy. He is unwashed and goes barefoot.
My friends noticed this young man struggling by on his bicycle, pulling an old “Red Ryder Wagon” behind him, and returning with it full of cans, struggling to keep them in the wagon. They decided this stranger needed their help. They explained to me that any man fighting to work deserves as much help as can be given.
Life’s obstacles can be overcome. Governments obstacles are forever.
They spent the next two days cutting things up, and creating a lightweight 4×4 cart, perfectly balanced, with a tailgate! When I moved it, it rolled easily, with just my pinkie guiding it. They invited the young man over, and created a goose-neck hitch for mounting their creation to the back of his bike, and away he went. He was happy and appreciative.
I have not named my friends because if the government knew, they might track down the kid and charge him a “GIFT TAX”, or some other absurdity, like we saw with the Derek Jeter baseball fiasco. 1) http://www.louisville.com/content/fan-who-caught-jeter%E2%80%99s-3000th-hit-gets-visit-irs-arena
These Americans didn’t wait for the government to fill this need. They saw a problem they could help with, and they acted.
That’s why I believe America will survive, regardless of how gloomy and horrific the news is on a daily basis.
The American spirit will save America.
…Let Them Eat Their Shoes And Sandwiches, And Boycott The NFL!The NFL, Nike and Subway, in an incredibly insulting slap in the face to the 86% of Americans that own and cherish their companion animals, has gone out of its way to hire the only person they feel appropriate to promote their products, Michael “DOGKILLER” Vick.I guess OJ Simpson wasn’t available.I figure they want everyone that handles their products to feel just like Michael “DOGKILLER” Vick felt when he had his hands around the throat of his dog, choking the life out of it for losing a fight. As they slide their feet into the shoe, they can think of “DOGKILLER” sliding his two innocent house pets into the pit to be terrorized and ripped apart alive.With every step of their feet hitting the ground, they can imagine feeling like “DOGKILLER” Vick did as he lifted another fight-losing dog high over his head, and slamming it into the ground repeatedly, until it was dead.The tingle of excitement they get from wearing new Nikes must make them feel just like “DOGKILLER” felt when he was electrocuting still other dogs that lost fights for him.As they wash their shoes, they can be just like “DOGKILLER” Vick was, as he drowned his other dog, laughing as it struggled to escape its cruel fate.Nike is missing a big new market, “DOGKILLER” Trading Cards! Every child under 12 should receive, FREE, a pack of explicit, beautifully embossed, autographed photographs, with hand written descriptions, detailing all of the wonderful, new ways “DOGKILLER” enjoyed, (the quote of one of his friends was that, “he got off” on finding new ways), to kill his animals.The depraved actions of this thug against animals is similar to the history of many serial killers, so of course the NFL, Subway and Nike, in a craven quest for the almighty dollar, have thrown their support behind this “DOGKILLER”.Michael “DOGKILLER” Vick is an abomination, a piece of human excrement that deserves to be shunned. His actions are not deserving of a position of respect in the NFL, where children get to see and admire him.Anyone that would stand next to him on the playing field is an unethical, morally challenged coward. Their paycheck is more important than their being associated with this monster.I had one pair of Nike sandals. They are in the garbage. I will no longer eat at Subway. I will never again go to an NFL game. I hope the rest of the 86% of animal-loving Americans feel the same.If not, we are in more trouble as a nation than we think.
On 9/11/01, when terrorists killed almost 3,000 innocent Americans during an attack on our economic system, Americans were outraged. We went halfway around the world to exact vengeance, and spent the next 9-plus years hunting down the leader responsible.
Tough words were thrown around by politicians looking to be out front with their patriotism and desire to protect Americans, as only they know how.
These same politicians have ignored a much more dangerous enemy, one that has killed many more Americans than the muslims ever did, and whose leaders are blatant and up front about their desire to destroy America. These leaders are even printing instructions for their terrorists accomplices, showing them how to break into America, and how to cause as much damage to the American economy as possible.
When are we going to get an honest politician, a true leader, one who will tell the truth of the danger we face on a daily basis from these invaders?
They have the same philosophy as the muslims. As their terrorist leader has stated publicly, wherever they are, it is their country. It matters not whose borders they have breached. As long as they are there, no one else has any rights.
When the 9/11 commission released its report, they stated that the muslims had been at war with us for years, we just didn’t recognize it.
Well, what’s the difference between the war the muslims waged, and the war the Mexicans have been waging for 60 years and more? Both are killers, but we only hold one responsible for their actions.
We toppled the Taliban in Afghanistan, not because they attacked us, but because they harbored Al Queda. How is that different from a corrupt punk president of a backwater, primitive nation sending his drugs and killers to America to terrorize citizens? Helping them steal as much as they can from our government agencies, depriving American citizens of much needed resources?
The only difference between Al Queda and Mexico, is Al Queda realizes they are never going to be accepted, that they are killers who pray to die as martyers. Mexicans, on the other hand, believe they deserve to be treated not just as equals to American citizens, but better, in that Americans can be killed with impunity, their property destroyed or taken over, and any attempt to stop them is racism. No American laws apply to them. No American laws can be passed to deal with them, or their corrupt president runs to fellow America-haters, the World Court, or obama and Holder.
On a daily basis, Mexicans are a much greater threat in American than muslims are.
It is time to declare war on Mexico. Make it a state and take the oil it has, as payment for the years of stealing and death they have wrought. Either their government must immediately give all the rights Mexicans demand in America, to ANYONE in Mexico, like owning property and businesses, or we should invade.
Is Hillary about to be drafted?obama is spiraling into the inevitability of a one-term presidency.His policies of appeasement around the world have caused the overthrow of the only middle-east regimes that either recognized Israel, or leaned just far enough toward the west that they could be counted on in tough times. The middle-east doesn’t reward weakness, and consider “negotiations” a victory for them, because their demands can never be met, if their negotiating partner still has room to exist.His destructive economic policies have led to government-created or subsidized jobs, which, according to the Weekly Standard, cost the taxpayer $278,000 each.His energy policy, to shut energy and coal companies and make costs, “necessarily skyrocket,” is the only thing working as he promised. Gas is 100% more expensive since he became president, and coal companies are under attack.His raping of the financial system of this country, his collusion with the corrupt Federal Reserve, the Billions he has stolen from the taxpayers for secret payments to foreign banks, have helped destroy and keep down a now-struggling economy.The Democrat party will be able to run on having the most “failed catastrophicly ignorant and dangerous policies.” Not a category soon to be rewarded by the majority of the American populace.So, under the heading of, “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull$hit,” are we about to see a reshuffling of the ticket?Face it, Joe Biden brings nothing, zip, zero, nada to this ticket. Unless you count ridicule. Biden is the only person in the White House that manages to say more ignorant things than obama. (I think Biden knows what year it is, and how many States are in the Union…I think…) Even after obama announces his amnesty position to get the hispanic vote, he can’t win with his current demographics.obama and the dems have nothing going for them, but…THE BILL and HILLARY Show!Hillary would energize a lot of women, who would figure with Hillary as VP now, she’s the next President after obama. Many independents that were ready to support her last time would conceivably come home. Bill and Hillary are respected, on a “Rock Star” basis, both here in America and abroad. I do not agree with anything she says, but she still has a loyal base that would run to support her.Remember, the muslims are in revolt all around the world because of the weakness in the White House. Hillary would bring two things to the White House that are currently “conspicuous in their absence”:1) Memories of an economic policy that wasn’t self-destructing, and2) Testosterone! She has more than anyone currently in the White House.There is no past or future policy that will get obama re-elected, now might be the time for the old “razzle dazzle.”We have a tough climb, they’re going to pull out all the stops, they won’t give up without a fight.
Along the line of, “some things never change”, we have now entered a realm similar in circumstances to the passage of the Health Care Bill.
At the time, Madam Pelosi posited that because the bill was so large and unwieldy, and there was so little time to read it, it would be necessary to, “pass the bill, so we would know what was in it”.
Now, at a time when the UN is full of itself in the absence of an American-interest protecting President of the United States, a time when the world is waiting expectantly to see which tyrannical dictator the United States President will next bow and grovel apologetically before, we have gotten into a “situation”.
There is no time to decide the correct path to take, we must act immediately to start killing people, we will find out what was in it for us, what actions will be undertaken against us, what terrorists we have just elevated to heads of state, later.
I especially love the fact that our Follower-in-Chief jumped to and keeps referring to the request for a no-fly zone by the Arab League.
I don’t see one of their planes in the air, with us offering support and guidance. No, that is not how the islamists do things. They go to the subservient infidels and get them to fight their wars for them. They get what they ask for, and then immediately attack the infidels for having the temerity to have done exactly what they were asked.
Where are all the “moderate” Arab countries, willing to fight to put down their fanatical brother muslims?
They do not exist. We have put ourselves, or actually, our Dhimmi-in-Chief has put us, right in the crosshairs of the next wave of fanatical muslim terrorists. Should Wacky Khadaffy survive, you know he will continue his exportation and funding of terrorism, and it will be us he will target.
Should we manage to help al quada and the muslim brotherhood, whom we are working alongside right now, defeat Wacky Khadaffy, does anyone think their gratitude will be such that they immediately cease all terrorist activities around the world, and stop trying to force sharia law on the west?
No, they will use their new-found positions of power and weapons to fortify and magnify their activities and demands against civilized cultures, attempting to re-create their seventh-century savagery around the world.
This is what the,”Pelosi Foreign Policy”, will bring us. We have entered a war without debate or clarity of mission, and we will find out what awaits us as a result, later.
