Our Children's Sacrifice...........

Today we pay homage to all the men and women who through their personal sacrifice and sense of honor have made this nation, one of the few that stands for freedom and prosperity for over 200 years. There is no way to show
how grateful each citizen of this nation's heartfelt admiration goes out to all
serving in nations all over the world. and be as it must, if not for the evil amongst
men our children would be spending this holiday with the ones they love. Although
separated by nations and continents they are always closest in our hearts.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR CHILDREN WHO ARE TRYING TO MAKE A BETTER WORLD!

Saving New York.......NYPost 5/26/2010

THE ISSUE: AG Andrew Cuomo's announcement that he is running for governor of New York.


I applaud Andrew Cuomo's courage and his view of the job ahead of him -- he is the

most qualified and trusted public official we have in New York ("Enter Andrew,"

Editorial, May 13).

His enormous experience on the national scene while running HUD gives him the

credentials to take on Albany, and his respect for the private sector will help

solve the most difficult problems.

More than ever, New York needs a public figure who's not embroiled in some slimy

behavior that has continually dashed the hopes of all New Yorkers.

Make no mistake, in a state so corrupted by unions and special interests, Cuomo

has a solid plan for effective and efficient management.

Mexico's president complains about Arizona....

The latest shameless display by Congressional members standing ovation for Mexico's forked

tongued President Felipe Calderon is the worst demonstration of Anti-Americanism in this country's

history. Having a Foreign leader demand that the democratic will of Arizona's citizens be admonished for the right of

illegals invading our nation is sickening. By his own words on CNN, Calderon established what good immigration

policy is, no illegals in Mexico without proper documentation, no jobs and immediate deportation. Funny how this

sounds like US Immigration Law spoken by the Mexican President. It's clearly established that our own president

should be following Calderon's lead and enforce Federal Immigration Laws. How Un-American and shameful can

this administration get? The Federal Government's arbitrary enforcement of the law is criminal by any standard.

Hazing Arizona............

One might , at times seriously consider why we have a Federal Government at all, numerous times in

my lifetime the Feds only step in when a State enacts a law by legislative measure, or referendum only to

see the Feds put an injunction and stop its enactment cold. So here's my question, Arizona a state with its own

Constitution becomes fed up with what amounts to an all out invasion from its drug running, murderous neighbor

Mexico. So what seemed rational in a nation whose laws we hold to be fair and just, enact SB 1070 to discourage

and deter unlawful(that means against the law) entry from illegal immigrants. No brainer. It just so happens SB 1070

mirrors Federal laws on the books already. Who would have thought the Feds had already written a law long on

the books Title 8, Section 1304 of US code which requires all aliens to carry identification papers. The audacity

of AG Holder who actually threatened a lawsuit hadn't even read the Federal Statute. Attorney General Holder

is a disgrace to the office he occupies. Instead of insuring the safety of the American public by upholding his oath

of office Holder through some grandiose verbiage is telling the rest of us to mind our own business. Sorry Holder,

it is our business. Start doing your job.

Obama's Immigration Rules...............

Obama's aunt gets asylum
AP
Posted: 2:41 AM, May 18, 2010


A US immigration court has granted asylum to President Obama's African aunt, allowing her to stay in the country, her attorneys announced yesterday.

The decision was mailed Friday and comes three months after Kenya native Zeituni Onyango, 57, the half-sister of Obama's late father, testified at a closed hearing in Boston, where she arrived in a wheelchair and two doctors testified in support of her case.

Onyango plans to apply for a work visa and can apply for a green card after she gets it, her attorneys said.

Onyango moved to the United States in 2000. Her first asylum request was rejected, and she was ordered deported in 2004. But she didn't leave the country and continued to live in public housing in Boston.

ZEITUNI ONYANGO Moved to the US in 2000.Onyango's status as an illegal immigrant was revealed just days before Obama was elected in November 2008. Obama said he did not know his aunt was living here illegally and believed laws covering the situation should be followed.

Supreme Politics...........NYPOST

Kagan and the Court: Call it 'Supreme politics'
Last Updated: 4:44 AM, May 13, 2010

Posted: 12:16 AM, May 13, 2010


Elena Kagan has an impressive academic portfolio and a career of achievement that

warrants a look, but there also seems to be a marked propensity toward political

connections that may cloud her judgment in the high court ("The Kagan Nomination," Editorial, May 11).

The essence of the Supreme Court is appointees who have experience behind the bench,

not behind the desk.

Kagan has served under two presidents whose ideologies are somewhat elitist. In

times of so much uncertainty, the American people are looking for some stability --

Kagan's politics just don't fit the bill.

first democracy unrest......

the economic and social unrest is just the beginning in a sharp adjustment in

what has been seen as runaway fiscal responsibility in several European Union

nations. Greece, the world's first democracy has compiled an enormous debt with no

real means of payment. passing on the debt from one fiscal year to the next with

more social policy give aways to both unions and public employees. An already

jittery world market is watching what happens in greece after the moves on

accountability are fully realized. could we be looking into a mirror of our future?
