Democrats for Censorship (or Freedom of Speech vs. the Fairness Doctrine)

Posted by Admin on June 29, 2007

Yesterday, was indeed a great day to be an American, and our Republic has averted disaster for yet another day… Not only did the Senate vote down the Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill, but the Supreme Court struck a blow against racism in our schools, AND the House of Representatives voted to protect our First Amendment right to the Freedom of Speech which was under attack by Democrats.

An effort by over 100 Democrats in the House of Representatives to quell freedom of political speech by using taxpayer dollars to re-enact the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” failed miserably, the final vote barring the FCC from repromulgating it was passed 309-115 (See the Roll Call here). Please note that ALL of the votes in favor of restricting Freedom of Speech were DEMOCRATS!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Supreme Court Strikes a Blow Against Racism in U.S. Schools

Posted by Admin on June 29, 2007

Edited for typos & clarity – Saturday, June 30, 2007

The Supreme Court of the United States struck a blow against racism in our schools today — despite some of what you might have heard on your local news this evening. I, for one, am happy about that.

Martin Luther King, Jr. preached about judging people on the content of their character, and not the color of their skin. On Saturday, August 28, 1963, in Washington D.C. he spoke the following words;

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

– Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream”, August 28, 2007

Affirmative action programs, and using race as the basis for ANYTHING in this country is the OPPOSITE of what MLK, Jr. preached. It is the OPPOSITE of what those who fought for civil rights were fighting for. I just saw on my local news a representative from the NAACP stating that this ruling set back Civil Rights causes. I see it as completely the opposite.

ALL schools should be of good enough quality to attend, should be safe enough to attend, and offer not only equal, but the BEST education you can offer to anyone. Read the rest of this entry »

AL-QAEDA DECLARES JIHAD AGAINST INDIA


The Associated Press is reporting the following:


Al-Qaida declares holy war on India
By Aijaz Hussain, Associated Press Writer | The Boston Globe | June 9, 2007

SRINAGAR, India –A group claiming to represent the al-Qaida terror network declared a holy war on India over its partial control of the divided Himalayan region of Kashmir, Indian officials said Saturday.

A statement and video was sent Friday to the Current News Service, in Srinagar, the main city of India’s Jammu-Kashmir state, in which a masked man standing next to an automatic weapon read the declaration.

“We declare righteous holy war against India on behalf of God the great in which Jammu and Kashmir will be the launch pad for holy war in India,” said the statement signed by Abu Abdul Rehman al-Ansari, purportedly the chief of al-Qaida Fil Hind or al-Qaida in India.

Al-Qaida Fil Hand had not communicated anything since July of last year when they announced their establishment. The statement released is said to be 5-pages long and is being investigated by police who will also attempt to establish its veracity. The Director General of Police Gopal Sharma is advising people not to panic. Read the rest of this entry »

Amnesty to FELONS? and more…

Posted by Admin on June 6, 2007

Thanks are due to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) for exposing yet another lie about the AMNESTY bill currently being debated in the Senate.

Today, the Senate voted against an amendment that would prevent the GRANTING OF LEGAL STATUS TO FELONS — including those who are subject to court orders calling for their deportation!

This is just the latest proof to come out that exposes the lies President Bush and backers of this Illegal Immigrant AMNESTY bill have told to the American people… Read the rest of this entry »

Solutions besides Amnesty…

Posted by Admin on June 4, 2007

I wrote the following in response to someone on a website who said it’s not enough to simply complain about the ‘bi-partisan’ Shamnesty bill that our elected officials in Washington are attempting to ram down our throats.

This is a rough draft, and I plan on ‘cleaning’ it up, but here are a few of the solutions I propose instead of these new immigration laws which — no matter what spin they put on it — equals amnesty for illegal immigrants.

There are many parts of this bill besides the amnesty part that should cause serious concern among U.S. Citizens, legal immigrants, and would-be immigrants who are waiting to come here from around the world legally.  I’ll try to address those issues soon… Read the rest of this entry »
