A Crack in the Dam

October 28, 2009

Cultural diversity and political correctness and our own judicial system used against us is the hairline crack in the dam. It is the means by which radical Islamists get in, get a foothold and then expand their beliefs, customs and laws to the point where they have the political legitimacy to then impose those beliefs, customs and laws on the rest of us.

US Airways just settled an intimidation lawsuit filed by six Muslim clerics who were removed from a flight after complains by other passengers. Once on board, the men took separate seats in the cabin’s front, middle and back. The men, though not large in stature asked for seat belt extenders (easily used as weapons). Airport police, consulting with the FBI, removed the men and questioned them but later released them without arrest. According to USA Today, the imams called the settlement a victory. They were testing the waters and they were successful!

Islam is a complete total, system of life. The ultimate #1 goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law worldwide. Sharia law is a strict moral code prescribing how Muslims should conduct their lives. Under Sharia law, women are less than 2nd class citizens. They are banned from working outside the home or appearing in public unless covered from eyes to ankles. In many places they are deprived of education. They cannot share taxis or buses with men. Fornication outside of marriage is punishable by stoning, and theft is taken care of by amputation. The sale and consumption of alcohol is prohibited and is punishable by public lashing.

  • Islamization begins when there is a sufficient Muslim population to agitate for their religious or cultural rights.
  • As a small percentage of the population (up to 2%) like in the US, Canada, Australia, China, Italy and Norway they are considered a peace loving minority.  When they reach about 5% of the population they begin to recruit from other ethnic minorities -especially from the prisons, jails and street gangs. This is taking place in Denmark, Germany, the UK, Spain and Thailand and is the best reason NOT TO RELOCATE GITMO DETAINEES TO PRISONS IN THE USA.
  • Next they push the local government to allow them to rule themselves in their neighborhoods and ghettos under Sharia law.


  • University of Michigan has installed foot baths -at taxpayer expense on campus to accommodate Muslims who wish to wash their feet before prayer.
  • A Muslim woman from Ontario, Canada attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) forced female only swim times so not to break Islamic sharia law.
  • An aquatic center in North Carolina bowed to demands by Muslims to segregate women for swimming and also have called for proper attire in the pools.
  • In London, the fanatical group Islam4UK have urged Muslims from all over Britain to converge on the capital this October 31st to demand the full implementation of sharia law.

And check out the Muslim birth rate if you don’t think this is serious.

Ignore this at your own peril.

That’s it for now!

Listen Up!

Pay attention -Listen to what they're sayin'

Pay attention -Listen to what they're sayin'

I know you haven’t forgotten all the whining about how the union members shouldn’t be the only ones to be penalized in the recession. Why should they have to suffer pay cuts or get the pink slips? The State budget is not bad enough, they have to waste tax dollars by suing the State to prevent furloughs, pay cuts or layoffs.

Uh hello, take a look around buddy everyone’s been hit and plenty of people have lost their jobs not just been forced to take a pay cut (while still enjoying full benefits, I might add). And if they cared so much about the keiki (you know, the kidlets) losing 17 days of school instruction as a result of the furloughs, why not give up some of their phony baloney waiver days or some of the many paid holidays, sick days and other pitiful ‘excuse to not show up’ days of which there are plenty:

  1. 21 Paid Vacation Days (with the ability to accumulate up to 90 days)
  2. 21 Paid Sick days (with no limit on the amount you can accumulate)
  3. 13 +1 Paid State holidays ( the +1 is an extra day every election year)
  4. = 55 Paid Days Off every year + an extra during election years

Now add the 17 furlough days and if you graduated school before the unions took over running the schools you come a grand total of at least 72 days a year the teachers DON’T TEACH. That’s 6 days a month! Is it any bloody wonder Hawaii ranks so high (nearly dead last by all measures) in academic rankings nationwide? Oh, by the way these are the same benefits for all County & State employees in Hawaii. And in Hawaii 24.3% of all employees are union members. 2nd only to New York in the nation according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

So if you think having union representation is such a good thing for Hawaii (or Michigan; 15% unemployment, or California; 10% unemployment) when CARD CHECK comes around again-and it will you better LISTEN UP.LiSTENUP

That’s it for now!

Now Here’s A Journalist!

October 18, 2009

545 vs 300,000,000

Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years and this taken from his story, “545  PEOPLE”.

This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget.  The president does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve  Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human  beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve  Board because that problem was created by the  Congress.  In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central  bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a  sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-pickingthing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.  The  politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what  the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault.  They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What  separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.  

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the  land, gives sole responsibility to the House of  Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.  Who is the speaker of the House?  Nancy Pelosi.  She is  he leader of the majority party…  She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want.  If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if  they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can  not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of  incompetence and irresponsibility.  I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.  When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to  exist..

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..

If the Army &Marines are in IRAQ ,  it’s because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not  receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available  to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift  the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can  abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to  regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can  take this power.  Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the  economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing  what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of  them out of office and clean up their mess!

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.  We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
And I still have to ‘press 1’ for English!?
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!  YOU can help it get there!!!

Health Care’s Dirty Little Secret

October 16, 2009

First of all, how can anyone call this bipartisan when ONLY ONE REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR IT!? Oh yes, well Obama does. But more importantly let’s look at the dirty little secret about the Senate Finance Committee’s version of Health Care Reform that passed 14-9 recently.

Beside the fact that the taxes to pay for this health care reform start this January and the benefits don’t even kick in until 2013, THE ACTUAL BILL HAS NOT BEEN WRITTEN -THEY HAVE VOTED ON LEGISLATION TO BE COMPLETED! Not a draft, an outline or an outline of a draft was anywhere in the room when a majority of the Senate Finance Committee raised their hands and passed this. Now all the various players from the competing health care bills will meet in private behind closed doors and hammer out what will end up going to President Obama to sign. This is where they screw the constituents and take out all the things they promised us, like verifications to prevent illegal immigrants from receiving health care, no federal dollars would pay for abortions, etc.

To guard Congress and the American public against a fast-tracked, middle-of-the-night version of ObamaCare, Senate Republicans, joined by eight Democratic colleagues, have proposed a three-day waiting period on all health care legislation so that it can be ‘exposed to the light of day.’ For most Americans, a three-day waiting period seems like a reasonable idea-even though Obama promised a 5-day public review of all key legislation in the campaign.

You can support this 3-day waiting period just click here, register and tell Congress that you support a three day waiting period for health care legislation. You can make a difference today. Tell them you want the 3 day waiting period!

That’s my Tip of the Day!

That’s it for now!

Nobel or Not?

October 10, 2009

US President Barack Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009. Is he a worthy winner?

Did you expect any less?


In a collective head-scratching this is what some have said:

“In science, no one gets the Nobel Prize for announcing a project. In literature, no one gets it because they’ve said that they’re going to begin writing a book. I would much rather the President earn a Nobel by accomplishing something great.”

“What did Barack Obama and Yassir Arafat have in common? They both hung out with anti-Semites who think Israel should be pushed into the sea. Oh, yeah—and they both were given the Nobel Prize for Peace.”

I say, not bad for a guy who’s been acting like Bambi caught in the headlights of history.”

“Why not the Cy Young Award, too?”

“Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize is one of the biggest jokes of all time. He hadn’t been president for a couple of weeks before he was nominated and before that, he had been a completely useless senator who passed nothing and signed very little. He may be a great speaker and incredibly charismatic, but he changes his loose policies often and worse, he’s made America appear weak and indecisive and left us open for attack. This prize was a total sham.”

“Let’s be fair . . . he did pull off the Beer Summit.”  . . . . . from various readers of the BBC online and Instapundit.

What do you think??????????????

The Dollar’s Slippery Slope

October 9, 2009

us-dollar toilet paperThe US dollar fell to a 14 month low yesterday day against a basket of other currencies and meanwhile Asian central banks have intervened trying to slow the slide of the US dollar. According to the BBC online (after all, you didn’t see this on NBC’s Nightly News with Brian Williams didja??), central banks in South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and Thailand have been buying the US currency to offset international currency traders bailing from dollar holdings.

Why would these Asian countries’ central banks want such a weakened US dollar? It’s simple, to hedge their bets. They are worried about their export industries. But how successful will they be? And how long will they really want to keep buying such a risky currency?

The US greenback risky? Come on, the dollar is the currency standard for all markets worldwide. Well, maybe it used to be but not any more. There’s a move afoot to go to a global currency or for oil trading, to a basket of currencies including the Japanese yen, the Chinese yuan, the euro, gold and a new unified currency for nations in the Middle East including Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Qatar.

Iran announced last month that their foreign currency reserves would be held in euros from now on rather than dollars. AND SECRET MEETINGS HAVE ALREADY BEEN HELD BY FINANCE MINISTERS AND BANK GOVERNORS IN RUSSIA, CHINA, JAPAN AND BRAZIL TO WORK THE SCHEME which would mean that oil would no longer be priced in dollars. This explains why gold has jumped even higher recently.

YIKES! If you think gas was expensive last summer wait till this takes hold. Unfortunately given the Yahoos in Washington and their unwillingness to stop spending money, America is unlikely to close its gaping budget deficits in coming years and the dollar will continue to tumble. You and I can understand this, why can’t those geniuses in Washington get it? It’s almost like they want to water down America’s strength in favor of globalism. It’s not what I want and I doubt that you do either.

That’s it for now!

Mafia Moves Into Medicare Fraud

October 7, 2009

Buried on the back of the front page section in our paper today, the headline reads:

Mafia, violent criminals turn to Medicare fraud“. And it goes on – mafia-1

“Lured by easier money and shorter prison sentences, Mafia figures and other VIOLENT criminals (my emphasis here) are increasingly moving into Medicare fraud and spilling blood over what once was a white collar crime.”

What does this tell you about fraud in health care and the government’s ability to fight the exploding health care costs? Just a wild guess here, but if the Mafia is moving in they see an opportunity.

It’s not hard to see this out of control cost explosion and how it is so lucrative for the insurance and drug companies and now the Mafia. But do you really think the government can make it better?

I recently went to my family doctor for a follow up (who I fired by the way, over this last straw incident). I simply needed a written referral for physical therapy. He’d seen me in the previous couple of weeks for my ongoing back problems so I figured he could just write the referral and leave it for me. Wrong, I have to make an appointment to see him. This means at least an hour wait in the waiting room (exposed to sick people and all their germs), and probably another 30-45 minutes in the examination room before I am actually graced with his presence.

Okay, my back hurts. I just want to get well so I do it. But I was right, I waited and I’m dying if I’m lying -1 hour and 45 minutes! He then spent less than 4 minutes with me and I’m out of there, referral in hand. The fraud and exploding costs part come when I go to pay. My co-pay is $10.08 so I figure, oh well at least I’ve got the referral. But they billed the insurance company $98.00!

I don’t know the answer, but I can tell you it’s not what’s on the table in any of the bills being put forth by our fearless leaders! All I’ve got to say is I can see why the Mafia is moving in!

That’s it for now!

Why is That?

October 4, 2009

This was sent to me by my good friend Jannelle and I thought it would be great as my post for today:

Point to Ponder

Why is it that if you cross the North Korean border illegally you get thrown into prison and get 12 years of hard labor…

If you cross the Iranian border while supposedly, leisurely hiking in the hills you get arrested and imprisoned…

But if you cross the U.S. border illegally you get

  • a drivers license
  • a Social Security card and
  • free health care?

Who’s bright idea was this?

All I can say is call the White House switchboard: 202-224-3121, ask for your Senator or Representative’s office and demand that they vote for and pass E-Verify for all US handouts. This is the program to identify with photo IDs, anyone receiving health care or jobs in America. It will save cities, states and the Federal government heaps of money and helps protect US jobs from illegals. It’s also a favorite amendment that seems to get axed at the last minute in the dark of night!

That’s it for now!

Czar Alert!

October 1, 2009

What the hell is a “Safe School” Czar? I’m sorry, but I just don’t get it. Now if they told me they were going to really crack down on the things that make our schools unsafe, like whatever led to the beating death of the Chicago honor student recently. And though that may not have actually been on school grounds it was students who beat the kid to death with several taking part as many others stood by watching.

What about drug testing for teachers and other school employees? Or the right to search students and their lockers? I know you have to tread lightly when you want to infringe on student’s right to privacy, etc., but what about the greater good of school safety for everyone? Or how about the deplorable conditions of many schools especially in the inner city. I can think of a lot of things we could be doing to make our schools more safe but is that job best handled at the Federal level and by someone such as President Obama’s choice for that position?

To wit. The Safe School Czar, Kevin Jennings an open homosexual who has now been outed as having encouraged the sexual involvement of a male student with an older man. I think in some circles this would be termed statutory rape and should have been immediately reported to authorities, not encouraged! Maybe the ‘Safe-School’ part comes in with Jennings  questioning the boy whether or not he used a condom.

Jake Tapper, ABC’s News Senior White House Correspondent reports that a senior official of the Department of Education (Jennings) expressed regret today for an incident that happened when he was a young teacher in the late 1980s, saying he should have handled it differently, but that society could benefit from his error.

What are you crazy? This guy is the Safe School Czar? Oh and by the way, did I mention he is also the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)? What a positive influence on our children!

Now I guess I will be considered a homophobe, just like people who go to the Tea Parties are hate-mongers. Call me what you like. I’m not. I have family and friends that are gay. I don’t hate gays, I just don’t like to see young kids in our schools subjected to an agenda. Get rid of him and do it now!

Call the White House switchboard: 202-224-3121 and demand a comprehensive examination of all of this administration’s CZARS!

That’s it for now!
