The 40 to 1 Ratio: Legitimate Religious Freedom or Islamization of America?

August 24, 2016

It’s okay to fine and jail Christians who in following their religious beliefs refuse to bake a wedding cake for same-sex couples or force the Little Sisters of the Poor to comply with Barry-care’s contraceptive mandate.

According to Gallup Americans believe between 10-23% of the population is LGBT (Q is not yet been figured into the stats ~because social justice warriors just recently made it up. In case you’ve had your head in the sand, Q = questioning). But in fact LGBT are only 3.6% of the population.

Try to require a Muslim truck driver you employ to deliver alcohol as part of his job and a ton of bricks will come down on you. Likewise a Muslim taxi driver who refuses to pick up a blind person with a guide-dog because and dogs are seen as unclean in Islam, somehow keeps his job due to religious freedom. It’s bullcrap!

stop-islamization-america-RALLY According to CNN, Muslim taxi drivers in Minneapolis refuse to take passengers carrying alcohol. About three quarters of the 900 cabbies serving the airport are Muslim, and many regularly refuse passengers carrying beer, wine or liquor. Maybe the cabbies need to get another job!

Muslim prayer rooms are being forced on American businesses. Many airports have built special areas for Muslims to pray. It’s all part of a very deliberate pattern to impose Islam on the secular marketplace. Disney has been sued by a Muslim woman who refused after being hired to dress according to the job-mandated “Disney look” which did not include a hijab. ACLU-SC attorney Mark Rosenbaum said “the suit aims to force a change in Disney’s policies” ~and across America (my words).

According to Bloomberg News, about 40 percent of workplace complaints involving religion filed last year with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission were related to Muslims which make up only 1% of the population. At a certain point, we have to say “Enough” and stop accommodating their arrogant and aggressive demands. Either that or we’ll all be subject to Sharia law before we know it.

Who Better To Vote For A “Should-be” Felon Than Honest To God Real Ex-Felons?

August 21, 2016

Skirting a Virginia Supreme Court ruling that Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe could not restore voting rights of 200,000 ex-felons in one fell swoop with his recent executive order, crafty Democrat that he is, McAuliffe is working to restore voting rights to these ex-felons on a case-by-case basis sparing no taxpayer expense (hat-tip Zero-Hedge), and he’s making great progress.

felons votingAccording to the Washington Post, Gov. Terry McAuliffe will announce Monday that he has restored voting rights to 13,000 felons and will not stop there. Using an autopen to individually sign orders restoring rights he plans to complete the task for all 200,000 felons within 2 weeks.

Republicans, incensed that it covered violent and nonviolent offenders alike, said the move was really a bid to add Democrat-friendly voters to the rolls ahead of November’s presidential elections, when the governor’s close friend and political ally, Hillary Clinton, will be on the ballot. Would he really do that? Well yes. In fact in a previous order McAuliffe had mistakenly (wink-wink) restored voting rights of 132 sex offenders still in custody! Didn’t you know, voting is a human right now.

Here’s my take, the Republicans have shown us over and over that they are ineffective in representing us because in fact, they only represent their own self interests. The Democrats on the other hand, are out-and-out Marxists determined to take down our country. With Killary at the helm, this plan will accelerate at a much faster rate than by the ineptitude of the Republicans.

Let’s Explore The Impact of 65,000 Refugees Under Hillary’s Plan

August 19, 2016

With nearly 323 million people one may think America could easily take in a small fraction of that in foreign refugees and still be okay. That’s what Obama, Killary & the libtards want you to believe. BTW, none of the people pushing for more refugees will be personally affected by their presence here. So let’s drill down a little deeper, look at the way these refugees are dropped on us and see the real impact of these 65,000 refugees.

immigration familySo bringing in what would be about .02% of our total population as it turns out has many implications of huge significance. Due to Germany’s open-door policy on refugees some areas of Europe have turned into war-zones swimming in crime, massive unemployment, social unrest and fractured budgets.

Most of the data in this blog post comes from ACT for America, the NRA of National Security, where we learn that the process of resettling refugees is a strategic one, sneakily coordinated between the UN and the State Department. The UN High Commissioner under the influence of a powerful Muslim group called the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, chooses most of the incomers (explaining the very few Christians selected for refugee status). In fact most of the incomers are from Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq & Syria, many of whom hate Westerners and our way of life.

These refugees are then dispersed to 190 cities & towns (far away from the elites in Washington DC) where 6 months later the federal subcontractors in charge of refugee resettlement start paperwork to bring in the relatives of the original refugees. Don’t forget the multiple wives and numerous children common in Muslim culture.

The price tag for this refugee resettlement is upwards of 1 billion dollars, not including welfare, healthcare and other benefits bestowed on these immigrants.

School systems are not prepared for the influx of non-English speaking students. Subsidized housing and welfare benefits more often goes to the immigrants at the expense of poverty-stricken Americans.

Refugee cities have become hubs for foreign illnesses. TB is mushrooming. State pension funds are underfunded due to massive spending on immigrants and crime is through the roof.

So don’t be fooled by the .02%, a mere 65,000 refugees they tell us we must accept with open arms. You better make sure Hillary is NOT elected!

The Thing About Italian Bathrooms

August 7, 2016

Ok we’ve been to Europe many times before. Some things stay the same and others don’t and some depend on your economic situation. Believe me when we first started foreign travel many years ago (People Express, $99 per person from Newark – Brussels!), we went on the cheap. I’m talking youth hostels and student Eurail passes, and even some hitchhiking. At that level, nothing really surprises you and you take what you can get and hope for the best.

B&B bathroom

Notice no curtain or shower door. There is a drain in the floor, but EVERYTHING gets wet!

But I’ve never been able to work out the European shower situation. The showers are rarely enclosed and they all have the telephone shower heads and may or may not be fixed to the wall so you’re left holding the shower head with one hand and trying to scrub various body parts with the other. Shampooing is a whole other adventure. Remember now, there’s little or no enclosure. Maybe a narrow glass or plastic panel or a flimsy curtain, or maybe nothing. My point is there’s no way to shower and get clean and not get water all over the floor.

It seems a simple fix, but this situation has not changed in all the 30+ years since we’ve been coming to Europe. I know these people don’t want water all over their floors, but they just haven’t figured this one out. It baffles the mind.

The B&B we stayed at in Ravenna, which by the way was really clean; well located (equally easy walk from the train station or the main piazza in the old town where there are a gazillion restaurants and sidewalk cafes to pick from), but had a terrible bed. We solved this problem by doubling up some spare blankets in the room, using them underneath the bottom sheet for padding. I mean this bed had some mean springs!

          It’s not hard to figure out what to do.

Now the toilets (water closets) are pretty standard. They may look a little different shape wise and the water tank is not at the back of the toilet but above it. Some are squatter’s (a picture is worth a thousand words!).

Push the big oval for #2, the small one for #1

Push the big oval for #2, the other for #1

Most have the obvious flush choices, you know to  take care of the big job or the small job. Then there’s the bidet. I’ve never quite figures out the intricacies of those. We just don’t have them in America.

Not to worry, it’s all the differences that make travelling such a treat.

Well, Well, Well. All Is Not As It Seems

August 1, 2016

Okay, I admit it. I felt a little bad for Mr. & Mrs. Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star parents who lambasted Trump at the Democratic convention (where not a single American flag appeared until day 3 when they were shamed into it -ha!) for his suggestion that we should maybe not admit people from countries involved with Islamic terrorism. KhanKhan then added insult to injury, accusing Trump on national TeeVee of never having read Constitution, despite being in a room full of those types!). But I did have a moment of “Jeeze Trump don’t keep putting your foot in your mouth with your response” -until I learned this as posted on Breitbart today:

Khizr Khan has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United Statesand has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation. Ah-ha!

And BTW, no where does the US Constitution say there cannot be a religious test for those seeking asylum in the United States. I don’t care how many times Khan reads the Constitution, he will never find any word or statement saying the United States does not have the right to limit immigrants of any particular religion.

Wow, Trump nailed it again. How does he do it?

Here’s another thing you should recall. Donald Trump came out early against war with Iraq. Hillary voted for it. Army Captain Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004. Maybe they should blame the Hillary not Trump. And the media with their righteous indignation over Trump’s reaction to all this sure was different from their treatment of Pat Smith, mother of murdered Benghazi victim, Sean Smith. They are such damn hypocrites!

Just saying!

What The Hell Happened to The 10th Amendment?

July 31, 2016

This story from Activist Post, but first we need a primer if you will (thank you Revolutionary War & Beyond) on the 10th Amendment.

The 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution is a guarantee of States’ rights. The Constitution designed the federal government to be a government of limited and enumerated, or listed, powers. This means that the federal government only has powers over the things that are specifically given to it in the Constitution. All other powers are reserved to the States. The 10th Amendment in the Bill of Rights reads like this:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

By Heather Callaghan for Activist Post:

We regret to inform you that President Barack Obama signed into law, S. 764, which was the newest manifestation of the DARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know).

GMO TomatoThe DARK Acts were a way to establish federal labeling – i.e. the lack of GM labeling – and would banish all state labeling initiatives under a federal standard. A brief press release by the White House simply mentioned a list of bills and S. 764, “which directs the Secretary of Agriculture to establish a national mandatory bioengineered food disclosure standard,” was listed at the end. The “disclosure standard” must be an inside joke, because the disclosure involves the consumer having to scan a QR code on a food product to find out about genetically modified ingredients, or call a 1-800 number. These measures might not even happen for another five years.

The federal measure authored by Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and fast-tracked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (no committee, no debate) has now quelled all state efforts for clear text labeling of genetically modified organisms in food. This writer wonders whether the state labeling initiatives purposely held off their labeling efforts until 2018 – 2016 at the earliest – in anticipation of this federal measure. After all, the Senators receive millions from Big Agri.Read about the tricky business involved in ramming this measure through.

All I want to know is what the hell happened to a limited federal government and states’ rights? If you would like to be a part of taking power away from the federal government, go to Convention of States and volunteer!

The Infamous Roundabout

July 27, 2016

RoundaboutIn Europe, the UK and many other locations for that matter, the roundabout replaces stops or traffic lights at intersections. They keep traffic moving. And they’re quite handy especially if you miss your turn or don’t really know where you’re going. You can just keep circling till you figure it out. It Italy it’s also called a rotator or a rotonda.

And BTW, Italians love to drive very fast and to them there is no right side or left side, they’re in the middle when you round the bend. If you’re lucky you may hear a warning honk. No question it’s exciting, but can be nerve-wracking. Even when stationary, Italian drivers are bold. They’ll park facing either direction, halfway up the kerb (European spelling), handicap spaces, no worries wherever they can fit the car they’ll park it! If they’re being extra cautious they may put their hazard flashers on but that doesn’t stop them from parking wherever suits their needs – another good reason to have the smallest car you can get just to be competitive.

double roundaboutTraffic in the roundabout has the right of way, so in heavy traffic it can be tricky breaking in. Horns honk of course and you may even encounter the occasional hand gesture. Luckily here in Italy they drive on the same side of the road as we do in the USA, otherwise navigating the roundabout could get really hairy. And though we didn’t see any there is such a thing as a double roundabout!

Here’s the cute little roundabout in Visgnola where we rented our apartment through Airbnb. And how classic, there’s an olive tree right in the middle!Roundabout (2)
