Why isn’t the USA #1 in science?

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

A museum based on the “facts” as presented by the Book of Genesis.  If this is where we should get our science from I want to see these people go to a doctor who truly discounts true hard science and follows this Biblical Science-light.  I will go to the doctor that believes in hard science. Here is a good wrapup of what the deal is with this museum.

Laurence O’Donnell from the West Wing also knows his politics

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Rangel announced on Sunday that he wants to reinstate the draft. He said the same thing a few years ago but quickly let on that he wasn’t serious. He’s playing it straight this time and has already introduced a bill. Local New York TV news has given Rangel saturation coverage. You can see his anger and frustration building each time he answers another reporter’s question about the draft. The point he keeps repeating is: “There’s no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm’s way.” More is posted here

A huge reason to see the Religious Right as doing all of us wrong

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Story is here

Stories like this have to make rational people see the Religious Right as being the Religious Wrong.  How can the drastic improvement of dogs with Muscular Dystrophy not be directly tied to an improvement in people with Muscular Dystrophy?  To deny those people suffering with MD the hard science research into the true miracle of Stem Cells is to be pro death.  The Religious Right is simply going to be “scienced” out of any credibility they had on the topic.  The numbers that this type of research can directly affect is supposed to be 100 million.  Those are people with the disease and those with family members who have diseases such as this.  100 million people affected by this disease and countless dollars in health care for those afflicted with it are impacted by this story of hope.  This research is less than the tip of the iceberg however the iceberg is not allowed to be unveiled.  When will America turn to the Religious Right and send them back to the Middle Ages where they belong?

How dangerous are pitbulls?

Friday, November 10th, 2006

http://www.nbc5.com/news/4828877/detail.html 

How dangerous are pitbull dogs?

The American Temperament Testing Society evaluated 122 breeds and found that the American Staffordshire Terrier, a type of banned pit bull in Denver, passed 83.3 percent of the time, just behind the golden retriever (83.6 percent).

 

The American Canine Foundation calculated rates of human dog-bite fatalities by breed and found that pit bulls bite at a lower rate than many other dogs. A Doberman Pinscher bites 10 times as much as a pit bull, the foundation reported.

 

Still, pit bulls and rottweilers have caused the most deaths, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Humane Society of the United States, which examined 20 years of dog-bite data.

 

That same study concluded fatal attacks “represent a small proportion of dog bite injuries to humans, and therefore, should not be the primary factor driving public policy concerning dangerous dogs.”

 

Julie Gilchrist, a CDC doctor who researches dog bites, said many factors go into biting risk, including the health of the dog and how the animal was raised.

 

A Denver district court ruled in 1990 pit bulls can be treated differently than other dogs because “there is credible evidence that pit bull dog attacks are more severe and more likely to result in fatalities.”

What political party is this guy?

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

http://seedlings.wordpress.com/2006/11/09/invitation/ 

I’m a registered Republican. Like many registered Republicans, I’m disgruntled with my party.

Mind you, that doesn’t make me happy to see the Not Republicans take over. These days it’s either frying pan or fire.

But rather than wilt away in pessimism – after all, with only one of my elected leaders (President Bush) a Republican, I am now “represented” by a host of others (senators, representative, governor, county executive, state reps) who are Not Republican – rather than become embittered, I’m choosing to take an open mind.

My political allegiance is hereby up for grabs.

In the absence of successful leadership from the Republican Party, and of a specific platform beyond “Anything but Bush!” from the Not Republican Party, I will specify precisely what I expect from every one of my elected representatives, regardless of political affiliation. If the new Congressional majority ponies up and delivers the goods, I may join them with pride in registering myself as a Democrat.

New Congress, this is what I expect from you:

Bipartisan cooperation that accomplishes goals, not gridlock.

Sensible discourse that presents balanced and informed views, and avoids soundbites.

A solution in Iraq that is swift and cost-effective, and that saves the lives of American troops, preserves Iraqi democracy, ends sectarian strife, and keeps terrorists away from American soil.

Innovative, aggressive, and successful ways to protect our homeland from terrorism while preserving civil liberties. It is unacceptable for you to parrot the brainless platitude “That’s the price of freedom” without exploring options for fighting terrorism within freedom’s realm. From this point forward, a single terrorist attack on domestic soil will be your fault, not Bush’s, since you are the variable that has changed.

Reduced federal spending and a reduced deficit without an increase in my tax burden.

Laws designed to protect and benefit all Americans, not only minority or special interest groups.

Measures that reduce our dependence not only on foreign oil, but on all oil whatsoever. Fund and create incentives for energy research. Hold the oil industry accountable for price gouging.

Protection of public health through regulations that preserve the environment. Tax and regulate the tobacco industry until it is no longer profitable.

Accountability for the executive branch and all state governments for enforcing existing immigration laws. If immigration laws are unsatisfactory, change them – just enforce the laws that exist.

Improved education through learning, not testing. Provide incentives for states to fund teacher raises and better student-teacher ratios.

A reduced crime rate through the appointment of strict judges who support tough sentencing.

Zero tolerance for corruption in Congress. Investigate allegations swiftly, and deal with guilty Congressional members sternly.

An increase in the minimum wage.

A curb in frivolous lawsuits by capping damage awards and punitive penalties, and drastically reducing lawyer commissions.

The establishment of programs and incentives to encourage women to choose life over abortion.

The Republicans had their chance, and they blew it. You claimed you had a better way. All you need to do to win my affiliation is to deliver.

I’m watching you.

Nice essay on your part!  Very good to be open to other side of issues so kudos to you!Here are my thoughts on each of your thoughts- sorry about the length but bumper sticker phrases don’t describe complex policy well…and I tried to keep my answers brief! And these are general stances by Democrats and Republicans in general.  To argue individual stances would be to fight windmills so I am going with generalities.  YMMV!
#1- Bipartisanship is contrary to the two party system.  Basically Republicans look to put money in the hands of the rich and the Democrats look to help the poor.  To average this is a difficult thing to do.  It was done in Clinton’s years with the rising waters bringing all boats up economically with the number of poor dropping and the number of rich rising as well however in the Reagan and Bush years the poor are getting poorer while the rich are getting extremely rich.  For every $1 the poor made the rich made $18,000 according to governmental statistics.  I have many many links on my blog containing finance statistics so please look at www.joewo.com/WordPress and if you cannot find stats to backup a statement here ask me because it is there.  I believe it is right and good to help the poorer…meaning under $100,000 to $200,000 income generally and quite frankly the rich can take care of themselves.  Tax breaks for millionaires and tax breaks for oil companies were just wrong on many levels.  Bush’s tax break handed $89 tax breaks on average to people making $100,000 so don’t give me the “tax break helps families” crap.  It was a redistribution of wealth to the super rich at the cost of social services of the poor and the deaths of the troops in Iraq.  This is the most anti Christian move ever in the West by a leader fraudulently wrapped in the Bible to give to the rich and take from the poor.  Check the government figures below to prove the tax breaks helped only the super rich.
http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/TaxModel/tmdb/TMTemplate.cfm?DocID=748&topic2ID=40&topic3ID=43&DocTypeID=1

#2- Generally Democrats talk too much because they try to explain their side fuller than just bumper sticker slogans preferred by Republicans.  This wordiness bores America.  You will need to do something about explaining to America that listening and understanding longer sentences is to their benefit and perhaps benefits their life.  In effect…give me a smart candidate with a rich explanation as opposed to what we have had lately.  Sorry but Republicans sure like those bumper sticker phrases and are typically contrary to your best interests when fleshed out.  Good discussion on topics…make Republicans discuss things in CONTEXT as to who will benefit as opposed to “stay they course” worthless sayings.  When they do that they say the economy is doing great…but they don’t say middle class people see a drop in real wages…so the economy is great for the rich.  But 90% of America is not rich!!!!!!!  FOX News does this ALL DAY LONG.  Wonderful economy we have with all jobs going to China and Wal Mart hiring!!
 

#3- Solution to Iraq?  Bush and many of his friends are personally benefiting while sacrificing nothing.  They broke it but the Democrats will be blamed if they cannot fix it…so much for Republican as the responsibility party!! This is nothing new for his crowd and is absolutely true.  To stop the war Bush’s friends need to personally stop benefiting otherwise why should the war stop?  Also the Iraq War is going to start a domino effect of power surges in the Middle East…possibly to the detriment to Turkey our ally…and the end of the Iraq War for us will be the beginning of possible WARS in the Middle East.  Solution in Iraq….remove those that personally make money off of it and begin HUGE mediation of the region.  Plus remove religion from that area.  The problem is mostly religion based in that they hated each other because of Biblical reasons.  You need to solve the disease and not just band aid the symptom.  Truthfully Saddam was a good band aid but we ripped that off and exposed the disease we cannot cure…so look for another band aid or work on the disease because the disease of religion is terminal and it ain’t goin anywhere soon…but it should for everyone’s benefit!
 

#4- Protect the homeland?  Go back in time and not start the Iraq War…finish the job in Afghanistan and prior to that make Bush have meetings about Bin Laden and not allow him to twist the facts from the CIA.  Ok fine be that way in wanting to stay in THIS timeframe!  Impeach Bush and make him RESPONSIBLE for what he did and send him to prison!!!!! Teach future Presidents they cannot do that because right now we sure can have a dictatorial President come in and start a war with another country based on lies and God and have it his way.  It is obviously easy to do!      Why are the 9/11 Commission’s suggestions not implemented?  Why did his administration fight testifying in the 9/11 incident?  And last but probably the greatest is the FACT that the Project for a New American Century was just salivating over an event like 9/11 in order to allow us to invade Iraq.  Several PNAC leaders were in the administration and we went to a war which was planned and hoped for a decade before.  No wonder they didn’t want to look into Bin Laden prior to 9/11…they dreamed it would happen!!!!  Protect America…Democrats want to enact all of the 9/11 Commission suggestions…start true container inspections in foreign ports and they want to talk to our adversaries.  We could NEVER defeat this enemy militarily and we are finding that out now.  And true border protection to the south AND to the north…but the cheap labor stops that so forget that one!
 

#5-  You said MY TAX BURDEN…MY…MY…MY…ME…ME…ME…ME.  How have YOU sacrificed for the Iraq War?  You haven’t and you have probably made money while our soldiers died.  The making of war millionaires is blood money…it is immoral and should be illegal.  Secondly you are selfish and you admitted it in your blog.  Ask not what you can do for your country but pass when you can do something for it.  That is a true Republican comment you made!   Reduce deficits and no new taxes?  A $9 trillion debt brought on by Bush’s crazy credit card spending and no increase in taxes to pay for it?  We are barely keeping up with paying the interest payments and you don’t want additional taxes to pay for the REAL DEBT?  What planet are you on?  We owe China $1 trillion…how is driving the debt to China up not a treasonous act by Bush?  So tell me how you would raise $9 trillion and look to the future for the $40 to $60 trillion in spending that is planned while your billionaire friends and oil companies see $500 billion to a trillion dollars in tax breaks without more taxes?  The answer- no taxes be paid by people making up to $100,000.  very very small taxes for people making up to $200,000. Estate tax back to where it was in the Clinton era and capital gains taxes back to where they were in the Clinton Era and a few more percent to pay.  Corporate tax breaks negated and write offs controlled heavily.  If you work for a company and you get money or goods from the company you get it all reported on a W2…all reported and all subject to possible tax!  The $500 BILLION dollar tax break to the super rich repealed.  True Americans do not complain about paying their taxes when they make millions.  True Americans don’t say ME ME ME MY MY MY TAX BURDEN.  Just like the Reagan administration…how would our economy do without the infusion of $5 trillion in debt?  We would be Guatemala economically back then and we would be the same now!  So our economic expansion IS FALSE!!!!!!!  When credit card spending rules the house the end of the month brings the bill.  Try this scientific experiment- put all of your household expenses on one credit card while only paying the interest and when you cannot sleep due to the debt pressure then you will personally be where we are now as a nation.  Reduce foreign debt….elect Bill Clinton (I wish!)and dump Bush and all future Bushes.  My tax burden…how selfish of you!
 

#6- Laws designed to protect ALL Americans? Marriage denied to some and approved for others is a disenfranchised minority denied a law that should be given to them.  The next big civil rights advancement will come with gay marriage.  The government should not be in the morality business otherwise we will be just like the Taliban or Saudi Arabia.  60% of marriages fail these days and over 50% of young people are single…so tell me who killed marriage?  What do you call someone who works against gay rights while being gay themselves…someone who sells their very soul and life for political gain which is why we find a gay Republican in every closet in DC these days.  Ken Mehlman the RNC Chairman has been outed and he apparently issued a quick resignation letter.  That is wrong!  Abortion is stopped for women by men making laws.  If men had babies abortions would be had at McDonalds!  Other nations have hundreds of thousands of women dying or seeing horrible consequences of backstreet abortions yearly according to the World Health Organization.  Abortion is bad…maybe…but do you want women to die or be almost killed with backstreet abortions bringing infection and worse?  Abortion is still legal in America which is why we haven’t seen the huge numbers of women dying from backstreet abortions…yet.  However a good part of the nation wants those women to die in the process by outlawing abortion.  I want women to live…I am pro choice for the WOMAN.  Laws to protect women have you elect Democrats.  Elect Democrats and you have more laws protecting individual rights.  By the way the Republican religious right anti abortion groups are imploding because that stance is not truly a Republican stance and quite contrary to the Republican concept of less government.  Religious right and Republicans are actually oil and water and that will be seen soon.  They formed a coalition to fight Democrats with the true Republicans calling the religious side “Nuts”  hahah!
 

#7- Reduce foreign oil usage?  Bush is an oil man..Cheney is an oil man…a Chevron oil tanker was named Condoleeza Rice.  The day after Bush paid lip service to alternative oil in his speech he/Cheney had a secret emergency meeting demanded by Saudi oil people.  If you want to reduce oil usage…reduce Bush usage!  Bush made a challenge a couple years ago for a Mars mission whereas he should have made alternative fuel the challenge for the nation but of course not.  This would have been a Kennedyesque Moon challenge for the decade and we could have done it!  Reduce oil usage with an oil man in office?  Elect Democrats who wanted reduced oil usage in the 70s.  Who was right back then?  Imagine if we went alternative fuel back in the 70s and stuck to it.  We could give the finger to the Middle East by now as opposed to trillions of dollars per year.  SAY IT…WHO WAS RIGHT IN THE 70S WITH ELECTRICAL CARS AND WHO WAS WRONG!!!!  After W was elected…Ari Fleischer who was W’s first Press Secretary said that using a lot of gasoline with impunity is part of our American lifestyle and they would not be looking to conservation at all in their administration.  WHO WAS RIGHT?????   Being anti alternative fuel is a true act of treason and truly does help the terrorists literally.  I just amazed myself in thinking 30-40 years of true alternative fuel research starting in the 70s would have us in a different PLANET today.  Republicans shot that idea down back then and electric car people were mocked.  Now those people are smart!
 

#8-  Environment and tobacco tax increase.  Do I need to even give any reason to vote Democrat here?  Hello!  Duh!  Next!
#9-  Illegal immigration benefits big corporations who are owned by millionaires who get tax breaks while the average wage for high school grads and labor workers in America drops.  Immigrants are wonderful…unchecked immigrants kill off the sociological level that is closest to theirs by bringing it down economically with an oversupply of labor.   Hire a union drywaller at $25/hour plus insurance or go to Office Depot and get someone for $10/hour period. Hmmmm.  What happens to the US drywaller?  He starts to fight for those $10/hour jobs and his economic level goes way down.  That’s what illegal immigrants are doing.  Then again blocking illegal immigrants who are looking to send money home to Mexico for food is not what Jesus would do at all.  Accepting illegal immigrants would be the true Christian thing to do.  Are we a Christian nation or not?  Can’t be both and we sure are not!!!
 

#10-  PELL grants are down on average $100 per grant while education costs are up significantly.  Thanks to who…BUSH!!!!  So my plan would be that state college costs top $1000 per year cost maximum per student…all schools and family member students see college costs 100 to possibly 200% tax deductible.  We need educated people and we need an incentive to get them educated NOW.  200% tax deductions would send people to college for sure giving us an educated workforce…which we are losing quickly.  If you voted Republican you voted to drop PELL grants…if you would vote for 100% tax deductable education you would vote Democrat.
#11-  Tough Judges?  We have tough judges and people that go to prison come out and have a huge recidivism rate.  We should have INTENSE psychological intervention in prison.  Otherwise why do we imprison them why not just kill them off?  They are humans…that’s why we don’t kill them.  We are locking prisoners away now and throwing away the key and throwing away their lives and it is costing you in the sense that prisons MAKE criminals WORSE.  Intense psychological therapy of every kind is needed and it is not what we are doing now.  Democrats have mentioned this in the past but we are such barbarians this has been moved to the back burner as we lock people away forever at a cost to YOU of $60,000 per prisoner per year and then release them to be worse criminals than initially.  Do you believe in redemption like Jesus or do you lock people away forever…to put it in a Biblical way.  If you believe in redemption then we hugely increase psychologists and psychiatrists…if you do not believe in redemption then you are contrary to Jesus which is what we are doing now.  Democrats believe in redemption…Republicans believe in the prison industrial complex.
#12- Corruption in Congress?  Remove advertisement spending for political campaigns…remove lobbyist “contributions” of all kinds…publicly fund campaigns PLUS all broadcasters FORCED to air debates in prime time several times per week or as the candidates agree.  This has been deemed a First Amendment violation to remove campaign contributions and it would never be passed by bribe taking Congress but it would improve our nation immensely.  This action would remove a big part of the corporate influence on OUR lawmakers plus it makes candidates DEBATE the real issues.  Your congressman worked 1.5 days per week last session as the rest of the time they were raising campaign bribes for their advertisements to BS you into voting against your own best interests.  Bring Congress back to Earth…never allow both houses and the Presidency and the Supreme Court to all be one party as we have had lately.  No single party should rule all 3!  People did vote Democrat and you will see oversight and checks and balances now as we did not see prior.
#13- Raise minimum wage?  $5.15 x 50 working weeks x 40 hours per week = $10,300 per year gross income.  You live on that for 3 months and tell me how you are doing!  The Walton family, owner of Wal Mart is collectively worth $75 Billion while the people that made them obscenely wealthy do not have health insurance and are making significantly less than similar workers in similar companies.  Most Wal Mart workers are women and many divorced with kids. How can the Walton family look themselves in the mirror and not be disgusted by knowing they are the greediest family on earth?  If we don’t make Wal Mart pay for worker’s health care then you get to of course and you have been to the tune of tens of millions of dollars per year.  Couldn’t Wal Mart raise prices by pennies in order to provide living wages and insurance for their worklers?  This highlights the fact that we are the only industrialized nation without national health care.  The Iranian President laughed at Mike Wallace when they discussed the lack of national health care in the USA.  The President of Iran MOCKS us for our animalistic lack of national health care for all…and rightly so.  Clinton wanted to do it but the Republicans would rather give BILLIONS to the super rich and deny health care to the poor.  Killing unions as Reagan did and Bush 1 and 2 continued is to result in the lower class being cast into the plague of slavery and COMPANY STORE futures where they cannot get a leg up.  No unions = slavery for the workers.  Unions made the Middle Class in America and lack of unions will kill the Middle Class.  Corporate profits are up massively…inflation is up a few percent resulting in flat to dropping real wages…that’s a fact.  By the way the nation of China has FORCED Wal Mart to allow unions as part of doing business in China.  Why do we allow Wal Mart to break union attempts here in the USA?
 

#14- encourage life over abortion?  Take the hypocrisy quiz and see if you DESERVE to tell others what they can do with their body. 
Question 1- How many crack babies have you PERSONALLY adopted and fully paid for without any governmental help while those women were forced to have babies they didn’t want? 
If your answer is 0 then you win the un-Righteous ASS award.  You do not deserve to tell anyone what they can or cannot do with their body so STFU because you are the opposite of a true Christian!
If your answer is 1-2 then you are doing what you should do…do it and know you are right with Jesus Christ…nice job Christian trainee!
If your answer is 3-5 crack babies per year then you can say what you like to whomever you like.  You are a true Christian.
If your answer was 0 yet you still have not adopted any crack babies then you are not doing what Jesus said to do AND you are hypocritical in claiming that you speak for Jesus AND you are working against the poor.  There is a special place in Hell for judgmental rock throwers performing the Hat Trick of Hell like you.  Democrats are for health care for all and for child care for all…Republicans are not.  Do you think a woman just happily skips to get an abortion?  It is a huge decision and to tell her she is wrong when she believes it is how to best go ahead in life is to put your rear end in God’s chair and those that do are ALWAYS wrong.  How are you helping her?  Republicans rub her nose in her condition and make it hard for her to get birth control, to have an abortion and force her to have the baby she doesn’t want therefore possibly making her life quite bad as well as the baby’s.  And on the other hand Welfare mothers with 10 babies were ridiculed as well but they couldn’t get abortions.  Can’t have it both ways but the right wing whack jobs do!!!!
So what is your score in the crack baby adoption test?
BONUS QUESTION- The first poster mentioned stem cell research.  We do not know the potential of all stem cell cells.  They TRULY could be a MIRACLE cure for EVERYTHING!!!!!  But we don’t know.  We do know they will solve a lot of problems and they WILL do us good.  So read this story concerning stem cells and think about whether you want to use cells that are headed to the trash can or just let them be thrown in the trash. 
BONUS QUESTION-
All your life you are strong and vigorous and smart and “able bodied” in every way…which is today.  In 10 years you could begin to shake…in 5 years your memory could really go and by 15 years you could be a vegetable.  OR this could be an alternate story.  In 10 years you begin to shake.  Thanks to research scientists found a cure for this so you continue to shake but you get no worse.  Your onset of Alzheimers also has a slow down of symptoms so instead of being a vegetable in 15 years you could still have your mental faculties in 15 years.  HOWEVER that research was done in Singapore and Hong Kong and those that oppose stem cell research in America have denied the importation of those drugs so people in Singapore see those remedies but we do not.  Instead of your shaking stopping it continues and in 15 years you are a vegetable.  Now who is pro life? 
Those stem cells going into the trash…how do you know it is not part of God’s plan that we use those to save ourselves?  God helps those that help themselves…we are not helping ourselves by throwing away stem cells without researching them and therefore not living a Godly life.  100,000,000 people are affected by diseases that could be solved/lessened by stem cells. That’s 100 million people home schoolers! How can ANYTHING be more across the board and a no brainer than something that directly affects 100 million people in our country?  And they don’t want to clone cells either.  How many people need livers/kidneys/lungs/hearts/spleens/pancreases and so on.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could grow them and give people the organ they need as opposed to dooming them to a waiting list where people routinely die?  That CAN be done by cloning but it is opposed by pro lifers…a little liver was just cloned so there is HUGE potential there.  The opposition to this sanity is driven by bumper sticker politics and insanity.  Speaking of bumper stickers I am proud to be Pro choice…pro life…pro cloning.  Keep your Bible out of my diseases and I will stay out of your church!!!!
You said you were a Republican but your talking point demands MOSTLY come from the Democrat playbook.  This is typical with the right wing whackos brainwashing people in making them believe tax breaks affect them (you aren’t a millionaire so it didn’t affect you so shut up about tax breaks…..a tax break of a night at Applebee’s with desert is NOT a tax break for families!!!) they make you believe that being anti abortion is righteous while they do not provide health insurance or child care for even the poorest of people and on and on with many things that rational people are for.  And worst of all the poor are vilified by those that have plenty.  The haves make the have nots into second class citizens while the haves claim they are righteous Christians.  Shameful…hypocritical…anti- Christian…anti human…falsely proud and just wrong for America. 
 

One more quiz-
BACKGROUND- 50,000,000 in America do not have health insurance…that’s 50 million for you home schooled kids.
 

Question:  Which allows you to sleep at night?
A- giving tax breaks to a couple thousand millionaires/billionaires
B- giving health insurance to tens of millions of poor people.
There is your moral compass…you answered it. 
Republicans answered A while Democrats answered B. 
Apply this answer generally to every question in life.
Quiz over. 
You now know what political party you belong to.

We’re All Prisoners, Now: US Citizens to be Required ”Clearance” to Leave USA

International Politics October 26, 2006

Forget no-fly lists. If Uncle Sam gets its way, beginning on Jan. 14,
2007, we’ll all be on no-fly lists, unless the government gives us
permission to leave-or re-enter-the United States.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (HSA) has proposed that all
airlines, cruise lines-even fishing boats-be required to obtain
clearance for each passenger they propose taking into or out of the
United States.

It doesn’t matter if you have a U.S. Passport – a “travel document”
that now, absent a court order to the contrary, gives you a virtually
unqualified right to enter or leave the United States, any time you
want. When the DHS system comes into effect next January, if the
agency says “no” to a clearance request, or doesn’t answer the
request at all, you won’t be permitted to enter-or leave-the United
States.

Consider what might happen if you’re a U.S. passport holder on
assignment in a country like Saudi Arabia. Your visa is about to
expire, so you board your flight back to the United States. But wait!
You can’t get on, because you don’t have permission from the HSA.
Saudi immigration officials are on hand to escort you to a squalid
detention center, where you and others who are now effectively
“stateless persons” are detained, potentially indefinitely, until
their immigration status is sorted out.

Why might the HSA deny you permission to leave-or enter-the United
States? No one knows, because the entire clearance procedure would be
an administrative determination made secretly, with no right of
appeal. Naturally, the decision would be made without a warrant,
without probable cause and without even any particular degree of
suspicion. Basically, if the HSA decides it doesn’t like you, you’re
a prisoner – either outside, or inside, the United States, whether or
not you hold a U.S. passport.

The U.S. Supreme Court has long recognized there is a constitutional
right to travel internationally. Indeed, it has declared that the
right to travel is “a virtually unconditional personal right.” The
United States has also signed treaties guaranteeing “freedom of
travel.” So if these regulations do go into effect, you can expect a
lengthy court battle, both nationally and internationally.

Think this can’t happen? Think again. It’s ALREADY happening. Earlier
this year, HSA forbade airlines from transporting an 18-year-old a
native-born U.S. citizen, back to the United States. The prohibition
lasted nearly six months until it was finally lifted a few weeks ago.
Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union are two countries in recent history
that didn’t allow their citizens to travel abroad without permission.
If these regulations go into effect, you can add the United States to
this list.

For more information on this proposed regulation, see http://

Impeacment support?

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

In August and September of 1998, 16 major polls asked about impeaching President Clinton (http://democrats.com/clinton-impeachment-polls). Only 36% supported hearings to consider impeachment, and only 26% supported actual impeachment and removal. Even so, the impeachment debate dominated the news for months, and the Republican Congress impeached Clinton despite overwhelming public opposition.

This is called a coup….American style

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

If the Iraq War with almost 3000 Americans dead and upwards of 600,000 Iraqis dead is the biggest event in the past 50 years then this has to be the biggest story of the biggest event in the past 50 years.  It could be the biggest voicing the military has ever launched against the Executive Branch and Commander in Chief ever.

If this is not called a big red flag prior to a military coup then what is it?  In other countries the military would just take over and chop off heads but here the opinion is given in the editorial section of the newspaper.  So that’s what they are doing.  This is what the people IN IRAQ believe.  So if this is not the American version of a military coup….what is it?

http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/world/15929023.htm

The Military Times Media Group, a Gannett subsidiary that publishes the Army Times and other military-oriented periodicals, said Friday that it was calling for President Bush to fire Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

A group editorial to be published Monday in four periodicals — the Army Times, the Navy Times, the Marine Corps Times and the Air Force Times — says active-duty military leaders are beginning to voice misgivings about the war’s planning, execution and dimming prospects for success.

“Rumsfeld has lost credibility with the uniformed leadership, with the troops, with Congress and with the public at large,” the editorial says. “His strategy has failed, and his ability to lead is compromised. And although the blame for our failures in Iraq rests with the secretary, it will be the troops who bear its brunt.”

The editorial concludes: “Regardless of which party wins Nov. 7, the time has come, Mr. President, to face the hard bruising truth: Donald Rumsfeld must go.”
