Amnesty for Illegal Aliens is the Wrong Way to Go
May 22, 2007
The proposed fix to our nation's immigration system is extremely flawed and is absolutely the wrong thing for our country. Giving amnesty, by any name, to illegal immigrants is wrong. By sanctioning illegal entry or visa overstays we will be rewarding criminal acts. This runs counter to what should be our goal of a more orderly, law abiding society.
Teaching the people that you are inviting to become our nation's newest citizens that it is healthy and acceptable to display disrespect and distain for the rule of law is a dangerously harmful precedent to establish.
At the same time your actions are showing those who have spent careers attempting to enforce laws that their time has been wasted and their choice of careers quite dishonorable. Additionally it is a slap in the face of legal immigrants and those who have invested considerable time and effort with a dream of coming to the United States of America.
Sufficient laws exist to prevent illegal entry, remove illegal aliens, punish employers and to imprison those who abuse and traffic illegal aliens. We require no new legislation. What we are in dire, desperate need of are politicians and leaders willing to enforce these existing laws.
Don't be fooled by the ridiculous claims that enforcement of laws are meant to only target certain races. Laws are not discriminatory. You cannot expect to board a train without a ticket or visit some other country without proper visas and travel documents. Why should we use different standards? Open or extremely porous borders are a weakness. At a time of war it is unbelievably disastrous that nothing greater has been done to secure our homeland.
What is the next step in this path? Will our political representatives decide to close all of our prisons and release into the communities all convicted criminals for the reason that punishment doesn't seem to have stymied the level of criminal activity? Maybe simply forgiving them of their crimes, pointing them to the door and welcoming their integration into our population will work better. By those standards I guess we just have to issue an apology for our enforcement actions along with a friendly pat on the back and everyone will begin to behave appropriately.
Washington…..wake up from this dream and stop trying to lead us in the wrong direction with your distractive tactics.
Citizens…..pay attention to the issues, listen to what your representatives are really saying and keep a close watch on what they are really doing.

President George W. Bush's Greatest Mistake: Too Successful?
January 26, 2007
Having listened to President Bush's State of the Union Address, watched the news on television and read several
periodicals including yours, I am overwhelmed by the amount of ridicule against our president, talk of more
planned anti-war protests, outright refusals to reinforce and support our troops on the battlefield and of
course the incessant calls for investigations and impeachment proceedings against members of the current administration.
I immediately realized that President George W. Bush's success has surprised us all. I admit that I too
never would have imagined that nearly five-and-a-half years after the horrible attacks against our country
on September 11th 2001 that we would so successfully deter and prevent additional attacks on our homeland.
It is a sad realization that our country's massive efforts in tracking, monitoring and arresting terrorists
have been so successful that millions of our own citizens have completely forgotten the evil acts we witnessed
and suffered on that September morning. So many cannot remember that day and actually argue that we are
not now and never have been threatened or involved in any real war! People are so fat and happy, riding the
wave of economic successes and immersed so deeply in their own individual lives that they will not open
their eyes and ears to what is truly going on. I agree that our comfort is a blessing and continually pray
that my children will never have to witness such violence and feel such anguish. But I still recognize
that there are threats out there. There are many who would end our lives, exterminate our families and
completely erase the existence of our nation if they just once had the chance.
An international coalition of nations joined in a worldwide effort to confront terrorism in the many places
it grows and hides. It is a fortunate result that Al Qaeda leadership stressed the importance of preventing
the success of the new Iraqi government. They called for jihad, imploring indoctrinated Muslim youth to
report for duty, encouraging radical imams to admonish the faithful, and for Middle Eastern families to
forgo their futures by sending forth their untrained, sandaled children to carry the fight to the infidels.
While I cannot imagine that the creation of an actual front in this war was an expected outcome, I do realize
that it is a benefit to my family and fellow citizens. Before you condemn me for this attitude let me make
it clear that I fell strongly for the plight of the Iraqi people. This war has spawned a new head on their
soil. It is bad for the Iraqi people, but undeniably positive for so many others.
We entered this conflict without the desire to employ overwhelming force and have waned in our convictions
and actions over the following four years. We have refused to confront our enemies on their terms and have
often employed a useless strategy more appropriate for a children's game of tag rather than an all out war.
Understanding of the situation is then more diluted by spiteful politicians treating the conflict in Iraq
as a political tool. Using innocent civilians and our proud fighting men and women as pawns is disgusting
and shameful. Prolonging the war by refusing to use the means necessary to win it will inevitably result
in greater suffering by the Iraqi hosts as well as an increased number of both civilian and military casualties.
Many non-thinking people simply repeat the ridiculous slogan that our presence in Iraq has resulted in
an increase in the number of new terrorist volunteers. I challenge you that there has been no greater
terrorist recruiting poster than the ubiquitous photographs of our fellow citizens plowing into the Twin
Towers upon hijacked commercial aircraft.

Supporting President Bush and "His Boys"
October 12, 2006
In a letter published in the South Flroida Sun-Sentinel newspaper on October 9th, "Anti-terrorist boast," the writer states: "Let's not give
[President] Bush and his boys credit for no terror attack since 9-11."
I cannot help but feel an extreme desire as well as responsibility to clarify his
obvious confusion. As a proud U.S. veteran, I guess I should first establish my
position as most likely qualifying as one of "his boys."
Although I cannot attest that this result was intentional, I certainly do believe
that we are very fortunate that the Islamic terrorists have selected to focus
their efforts on confronting our well-prepared military in Iraq and Afghanistan
rather than pursuing innocent civilian targets here on our own soil.
Claims that our successful efforts in the war on terror should not be
applauded, but rather chalked up to the strategic mastery of terrorists
themselves are both ridiculous and illogical.
While the terrorists have concentrated much of their energies on harassing
our allies and military targets in Iraq and Afghanistan, they have not forsaken
hopes of hitting us in the homeland. Our nation's intelligence and law
enforcement operations have successfully thwarted several attacks. I have no
doubt that additional plots are being planned and will be attempted by these
War is not a pretty thing and no war has ever been scheduled to begin and
end with the timing of some sporting event. War is sometimes necessary and
usually unpredictable. We cannot abandon our efforts to battle this ideology
that threatens us. Don't become overwhelmed by the sound bites and
distractions continually tossed out by struggling politicians. Invest some time
into researching the facts and actually developing your own, well-informed
God bless President Bush and all of "his boys."

Somebody Save the Democratic Party!!!
October 12, 2006
The American public cannot be expected to truly support Democratic candidates until the party unifies
behind a solid, respectable platform. Double speak and double standards are a sure sign of weakness,
confusion and overwhelming disorganization. We cannot demand equal treatment for gays, then turn
around and accuse Republican candidates and officials of being closeted homosexuals. We cannot
claim that disadvantaged black Americans are capable of excelling provided access to opportunity,
then publicly and maliciously deride some of our most educated and successful examples as "Uncle Toms",
"Sell-Outs" and "House Negros".
We cannot use select terms both respectably and derogatively at our choosing. What kind of message
does such behavior truly display? These mixed messages are conflicting, confusing and disrespectful
to all. Democrats claim to support both diversity and equality. Well.....which is it?
Why must the modern Democratic Party be perpetually negative? We are more likely to succeed if we
choose to compete honestly and by directly confronting the issues. The Democratic Party must
cease the practice of passively allowing the most radically left mouth pieces be their only public representatives.
The Democratic Party must do better. Whining complaints can be substituted with serious solutions.
Name-calling can be dropped to make room for open, informed debate of critical issues. We need a
viable two party political system. America deserves better.

Pick Up An Issue And RUN!!!
October 10, 2006
Once again the Republican Party has sprung a successful October Surprise. The timing of former
Congressman Foley's outing and resignation has completely distracted the Democrats from anything
resembling an important or critical issue. Swallowing the hook, their most prominent babblers
have responded with flailing accusations and ridiculous demands for the removal of any and
all additional Republicans.
Why are Democratic leaders so easily led astray? Why do they fear and avoid the head-on addressing
of serious issues? Even when Republican errors and other circumstances seem to deliver loaded
weapons to their feet, most Democrats are wholly incapable of picking it up and responding the
way you would expect. Certainly our nation faces enough threats and challenges that the
Democrats can select a couple of prominent issues and attempt to address them directly. It is
time to come to the American people with a solution rather than continually tossing forth only
arguments and complaints that ultimately serve no useful purpose and only promote confusion,
misunderstanding, distrust and even hate.
How can our country survive and progress with half of our representatives failing to truly
represent? Simply working to preserve their own political viability and prolonging what should
most probably be a short-term position actually provides no benefit to our nation, no
representation for our citizens and, not surprisingly, ultimately disenfranchises constituents.

I Was Against Iraq Before I Was For Iraq
December 6, 2005
I used to oppose Iraq.
I despised the politics of it.
I had no faith in it's government.
The propaganda was abhorrent.
The torture, violence and murder were overwhelming.
The bombings, gassings, imprisonment and torture of innocents.
The random violence, destruction and mass murders of men, women and children.
It openly served as a save-haven for terrorists who murdered Americans and for those who worked
fervently to develop chemical, biological and nuclear weapons of mass destruction.
As an American, I feared the turmoil would continue to cause regional unrest, and that this may
eventually reach our own shores.
I took every threat against our nation, our people, our way of life and our leaders very seriously.
I despised the secret under-the-table dealings that enriched Saddam Hussein and his cohorts.
It was, after all, all about the big money and oil.
Just ask Saddam, Chirac, Schroeder, Putin and Kofi Annan.
Yeah, I used to be against Iraq before I was for Iraq.
But today, I am totally pro-Iraq.
I support the newly elected government with representatives of all major and minor sects and
factions of the Iraqi people, and look forward to the next major step in only two weeks.
I am overwhelmingly proud of the Iraqi people who go out to vote, apply for new jobs, and
volunteer to serve their country in the military and police forces.
I am glad that we can add Iraq to our growing list of allied nations in that region of the world.
And I am so very proud of the great part my country, the USA, has performed in this major change.
The incredible work and the selfless sacrifices made by our US armed forces have certainly
contributed to the coalition's part in aiding the positive growth in the new Iraq.
It is a wonderful thing to be a part of such a major event in world history.
I now proclaim happily that I am for Iraq.

Political Correctness is a Sham
December 4, 2005
Political Correctness has been successfully sold as a way to assist us all in getting along, when actually it is
a bar on free speech. Rather than lead us into some false harmony, it actually creates a greater divide by making
any viewpoint other than the most extremely liberal one seem as hate-filled intolerance. The Political
Correctness sham has been created by the most extremely liberal left as a way to restrict the freedom of
speech and seal the lips of right-thinking, conservative Americans. For all the whining about freedom of
speech it is absolutely amazing that they have so capably instituted these false barriers on both the media
and private citizens.
With all the miserable failures suffered by the Democratic Party over the past forty years, I must concede that
they have achieved an overwhelming victory in this particular battle. We are living in a time where amazingly,
anything contradictory spoken or written about the liberal agenda actually falls under this new classification
and is now considered racist, hateful, closed-minded, bigoted and intolerant. "Honest speak" has been publicly
silenced by this rhetorical takeover of semantics.
I get so tired of blaming the media for their overwhelmingly left-leaning bias, but they have certainly played
a role here. But they are by no means alone; I place the largest portion of blame on the conservative media
and for every conservative person who has quietly allowed this to happen.
The Democrats have effectively made free speech inconvenient and uncomfortable. Some people fear open
expression of even obvious realities. The left wing has cornered the market on acceptable speech, by
restricting the free flow of ideas and opinions; even to the point of making the most simple statement
fall under the category of cultural blasphemy.
We are now faced with explicit sex education being taught to our children in public schools. This includes
condom application exercises, guest speakers promoting abortion, and theater groups performing plays to
teach our youngsters the benefits of homosexuality. Our kids are forbidden to discuss or display any
religious ideas or beliefs on campus, yet the alternate view is being strongly preached to them.
You cannot possibly consider anything to be equal and fair when only one side is allowed to share or even
promote their point of view, while all other views are labeled extremist, intolerant and ultimately, politically incorrect.

London Terror Attacks
July 7, 2005
On the morning after the horrible terrorist attacks in London, I was sitting in front of the news with
my 10-year-old neice. I asked what she thought of these latest terror attacks in London. She responded
by asking "What did London do to Iraq?" I explained to her that the terrorist's ideology of hate meant
that they did not attack in retaliation for any act, but only because they felt that they should attempt
to destroy the people that they didn't like. She of course asked why they don't like the people in
London. I proceeded to tell her that it wasn't really about the people in London in all. I watched
her wide-eyed gaze as I explained that these evil, uncivilized people were educated only to hate everyone
that was different from them, and that they did not attempt to declare a conventional war, but rather
sought to kill and maim innocent commuters and children. She then told me, "that sounds crazy." To
which I responded "yes, you are right, it really is crazy." By this time her ten-year-old mind was moving
on to other thoughts as she toyed with the small stuffed teddy bear she held in her little hands. That
was fine because while I do think we should give our children an opportunity to express their feelings on
this subject, I don't think we should force them to dwell on it.
I couldn't help but think how so many adults exhibit a similarly youthful underdeveloped mentality when it
comes to the subject of terrorism. Certainly spending excessive time thinking on the subject can create
a fear in many people, and if this develops into an overwhelming fear which actually obstructs the
conducting of usual daily activities, then it is very unhealthy and can be marked up as a cleanr
win for the terrorists.
All British and American citizens, as well as civilized persons from around the globe must understand
that acts of terror must be responded to. History has shown that ignoring them does not work and of
course the method of cooperating or appeasing them employed by several of the Old-Europe nations has
only led to fueling the flames of terror and perpetuating the growth of additional organizations. We must
remain united and completely focused if we can ever hope to diminish the threat of outlaw groups.
Great Britain has experienced domestic terrorism for decades. Fortunately their law enforcement, emergency
response and public service organizations are more uniquely / appropriately prepared to respond to such
events. While the United States has been targeted by terrorists for many decades, it has only suffered
few incidents of domestic attacks. These attacks are not isolated incidents and will not simply
stop. It is imperative that we unite and show an undivided force of support for our government, allied
nation's and international organizations.

Treatment of Prisoners in Guantanamo Bay is Despicable
June 17, 2005
I cannot full articulate my shock over learning of the reported manner in which our government
is treating the prisoners being held in our Guantanamo Bay, Cuba military facility. To have
these fanatical murders indefinitely detained against their will is simply not enough for us,
is it? Even beyond the questionable indefinite detention, the atmosphere we have enveloped them
in at Gitmo is despicably tyrannical and wholly un-American.
Just because these illegal combatants are being held on Cuban soil that is insufficient reason to
allow us to get away with subjecting them to the brutalities of forced religion. Our nation was
founded on religious freedom. This was done with the intention of allowing citizens and residents
to worship any deity in any way they choose; as well as the undisturbed freedom not to honor or
acknowledge any higher power.
I was overwhelmed with despair when I found out that the terrorists we are holding in custody are
given copies of the Koran, subjected to religious services, encouraged to practice religious
procedures, taunted with religious relics and fed menus in accordance with Muslim traditions.
Their air-conditioned cells are even adorned with large arrows pointed in the direction of Mecca.
We as a nation of freedom loving people cannot allow such conditions to persist!
Even in our own schools we do not subject our children to such religious fervency. We do not
allow the Holy Bible or any religious text to be present in the classroom and we certainly
would never utilize it in any course of study or student discussion. We discourage prayer,
belittle those who are weak-minded enough to feel a need for religion, do not allow the Pledge
of Allegiance and would NEVER go so far as to have an arrow painted on the floor pointing to
the U.S. Flag! By many accounts we strive to prevent our nation's population having any knowledge
of the church or its teachings or any embarrassing reference to the Biblical principles on which
or country was established and built.
Why do we allow such hypocrisy at Gitmo? Let's insist that all religious influence be removed
from these poor extremist detainees and provide them the same freedom from religion that many
in our government work to provides us. Maybe by providing them with this small taste of liberty
they will forgo their sworn intent to destroy our nation and kill us all.

Felt's Revelations Violate FBI Oath
June 3, 2005
So this fragile old man near the end of his life finally is provoked by money-grubbing family
members to reveal himself as the infamously anonymous "Deep Throat." Once again he plods from
his little corner of obscurity for reasons purely personal.
A dishonorable former federal agent who was incapable of compliance with his oath of office now
faces our nation with an ignorantly shameless smile. Even the most junior agent in the FBI on his
very first day with the agency is entrusted with only one initial duty. That assignment is to honor
the oath of office. Sure, our nation's values have dropped enough in the past 30 years, so I guess
he finally felt the atmosphere was ripe to welcome another turncoat into the public eye.
I feel it is necessary to clear the confusion about Mr. Felt being called a whistle-blower. This
term became prominent 20 years ago and is used for those persons who valiantly and selflessly step
forward, at their own personal and professional risk, to reveal some sordid truth that has not been
properly addressed through internal channels. Like a referee blowing a whistle, this action is
taken publicly to draw attention, stop the game, and proclaim a foul. Whistle-blowing is not done
anonymously through secret liaisons and cryptic communications.
Double agents are usually motivated by money, recognition or revenge. The FBI's Robert Hanssen and
the CIA's Aldrich Ames were motivated by money. NIS's Pollard began stealing secrets as an unsatisfied
and disgruntled employee, and then later became hooked on the money. It appears that Mark Felt began
with spite and has now moved on in search of recognition while in the pursuit of monetary gain.
Mr. Felt is perched on the final edge of his life, yet he now provides yet another disservice to those
who trust him most now. As he thrusts his cloak of dishonor over the confused heads of his heirs,
he may now step shamefully into the abyss of afterlife that awaits him. Let's hope that we can
successfully sue his estate for the wrongful government pension he has quietly stolen these past

U.S. Economic Prosperity
February 1, 2005
What an incredible economic power we have in this country! Even after the dotcom bust,
several down years in the stock market combined with the devastating terrorist attacks in
our homeland in 2001 followed by the worldwide pursuit of terrorists and the liberation of
millions of oppressed people in Afghanistan and Iraq, we still prosper here at home!
Our nation has presented 350 million dollars to the tsunami ravaged shores of Asia and the
loving citizens of America have followed their hearts and contributed millions more from
their own pockets. Even with the world's highest ever oil prices, we can still provide our
citizens some of the cheapest fuel in the world. We are driving no less and purchasing
higher-powered, gas consuming vehicles at an incredible rate. We are without doubt a rich
population, freely and voluntarily spending billions of dollars on sporting events, lottery
tickets, movies, vacation travel, video and computer games, and a large variety of other activities
and forms of entertainment.
While fighting a global war on extremist hate our great nation still has the capacity to inflict
economic prosperity on her hardworking citizens. Millions of jobs have been created over the past
two years, businesses are growing, productivity has increased exponentially, inflation is in check,
interest rates have finally begun to rise from the pitiful fractions we've seen in recent years and
we finally have an administration that exhibits a sincere desire to repair our failing social
security system rather than simply complain about and predict its impending failure as has been
the fully acceptable status quo for the past several decades.
We continue to lead the world in economic and technological development. Our nation has
successfully branched out to other motivated and growing countries to share our resources,
provide jobs and assist in their own economic development.
Rejoice in our continued blessings, work hard to increase productivity, teach your children to not
suffer shame for our success, assist your family, volunteer in your community and aid the less
fortunate in seeking improvement and prosperity as well. Continue to recognize and share the
blessings of good fortune with community and humankind both near and far.
