BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY

October 21, 2015

Time travel is impossible you may say. To that I say boulder-dash.

I must disagree. You want proof? Okay. Just take a look at your calenders.

We have, all of us, just completed our trip to October 21,2015.

The future is here and it is now!!

Hey, someone just stole my hover-board.

Beginning of the end

July 25, 2011

Five points to ponder

1. You cannot Legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the rich out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, THAT IS THE BEGINING OF THE END OF ANY NATION!

What does Hillary (Karl Marx) Clinton really believe? Read on and see.

She says “Shared Prosperity Should Replace ‘On Your Own’ Society”. “And special privileges for none.   Does that mean she will go to the emergence room when she gets the sniffles? I don’t think so. After all we are all equal however she is more equal than others.

I am posting the entire article here so it won’t get deleted by some massive archive someplace.

We Are All in It Together, Clinton Says

Clinton: Shared Prosperity Should Replace ‘On Your Own’ Society

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an “ownership society” really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said. “I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.”

That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.

“There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed,” she said. “Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

Clinton spoke at the Manchester School of Technology, which trains high school students for careers in the construction, automotive, graphic arts and other industries. The school highlighted one of the nine goals she outlined: increasing support for alternative schools and community colleges.

“We have sent a message to our young people that if you don’t go to college … that you’re thought less of in America. We have to stop this,” she said. “Our country cannot run without the people who have the skills that are taught in this school.”

Beyond education, Clinton said she would reduce special breaks for corporations, eliminate tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and open up CEO pay to greater public scrutiny.

Clinton also said she would help people save more money by expanding and simplifying the earned income tax credit; create new jobs by pursuing energy independence; and ensure that every American has affordable health insurance.

Iran to Israel: Don’t Attack Lebanon

May 24 10:56 AM US/Eastern

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran’s hard-line president warned Israel on Thursday that other nations in the region would “uproot” the Jewish state if it attacked Lebanon in the summer.
“If you think that by bombing and assassinating Palestinian leaders you are preparing ground for new attacks on Lebanon in the summer, I am telling you that you are seriously wrong,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a rally in the city of Isfahan.

“If this year you repeat the same mistake of the last year, the ocean of nations of the region will get angry and will uproot the Zionist regime.”

Note from Tommy49646:

Does this also mean that Lebanon will not attack Israel? Or does it mean that Israel shouldn’t be allowed to defend itself from attack by Lebanon?

Al Queda to use Iraq to launch attacks in the United States

May 23, 2007

NEW LONDON, Connecticut (CNN) — President Bush is expected to use declassified intelligence about Osama bin Laden to defend his Iraq war policy during a commencement address Wednesday.

Bush also will outline “three aviation plots” that have been disrupted as part of national security operations, said Frances Townsend, the homeland security adviser. Townsend, who spoke with reporters on Air Force One, offered no other details.

The president also is expected to mention in the speech declassified intelligence that says bin Laden planned in 2005 to use Iraq as a base from which to launch attacks in the United States, according to White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

Note From Me: Ok Democrats, lets pull out and give them a free base of operations. NOT!!!!

The Unfainess Doctrine

May 16, 2007

Read entire article here

The decision to press for re-establishment of the Fairness Doctrine now seems to have developed for two reasons. “First, [Democrats] failed on the radio airwaves with Air America, no one wanted to listen,” says a senior adviser to Pelosi. “Conservative radio is a huge threat and political advantage for Republicans and we have had to find a way to limit it. Second, it looks like the Republicans are going to have someone in the presidential race who has access to media in ways our folks don’t want, so we want to make sure the GOP has no advantages going into 2008.”

That last comment appeared to be a veiled reference to former Sen. Fred Thompson, who appears to be gearing up for a presidential run. Over the past year, he has built a following both over the AM airwaves through the ABC Radio network, as well as through almost daily appearances across cable TV on the TV show Law & Order, where he plays a tough-talking district attorney.

According to another Democrat leadership aide, Pelosi and her team are focused on several targets in the fight, including Rush Limbaugh and the Salem Radio Network. In fact, Kucinich’s staff has begun investigating Salem, one of the fastest growing radio networks in the country, which features such popular — and highly rated — conservative hosts as Bill Bennett and Michael Medved, and Christian hosts such as Dr. Richard Land.

UFO’s or not UFO’s

April 26, 2007

 I received an E-Mail from a friend recently. He was all in a huff about the latest “US Government UFO cover up.
Just a note from an Air Force vet. The alien bit is a big hoax. The cia promoted it to redirect  interest away from top secret research being done and still being done in that area. There are no ufo aliens. There is no captured flying saucer. When someone says the government has working flying saucers and uses them just ask, “Why are they still using rockets to go to space?” Its all a sham. Don’t believe it.

Alec Baldwin

April 23, 2007

It is undeniable that Mr Baldwin was wrong. But all he did was to leave a message on a tape recorder. If his small child heard the message it was not the doing of Mr. Baldwin. Someone, an adult, had to release the recording to the public. That would insure that the child certainly heard it. With all the hull-a-baloo against Mr Baldwin, I think it is even more wrong to be gtiving a complete pass to the “wife and mother” who released the recording thereby insuring the child would hear it. I would go to great pains to shield my child from hearing anything like that.

An iPod for every kid? Are they !#$!ing idiots?

We have come to the conclusion that the crisis Michigan faces is not a shortage of revenue, but an excess of idiocy. Facing a budget deficit that has passed the $1 billion mark, House Democrats Thursday offered a spending plan that would buy a MP3 player or iPod for every school child in Michigan.

Illegal Immigrants

December 1, 2006

        
 

LA Times on Illegal Immigrants
 
LA Times
 
If this doesn’t open your eyes… nothing will!
 

From the L.A. Times
 
1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A.
County has 10.2 million people) are working
for cash and not paying taxes. That’s
because they are predominantly illegal
immigrants, working without a green card.
 
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles
are for illegal aliens.
 
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in
Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
 
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal Mexicans on Medi-Cal,
whose births are paid for by taxpayers.
 
5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California
detention centers are Mexican nationals
here illegally.
 
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
 
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members
in Los Angeles are illegal aliens from south
of the border.
 
8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD
properties are illegal.
 
9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.
 
10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak
English. 3.9 million speak Spanish.
(There are 10.2 million people in L.A. County).
 
(All the above from the Los Angeles Times)
 
 
 
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our
crops, but 29% are on welfare.
 
Over 70% of the United States’ annual
population growth  (and over 90% of
California , Florida , and New York )
results from immigration.
 
The cost of immigration to the American
taxpayer in 1997 was, (after subtracting
taxes immigrants pay), a NET $70 BILLION/
year, [Professor Donald Huddle, Rice
University ]. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes
paid minus services used) for the average
adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE
number.
 
29% of inmates in federal prisons are
illegal aliens.
 
If they can come to this country to raise
Hell and demonstrate by the thousands,
WHY can’t they take charge over the
corruption in their own country?
 
We are a bunch of fools for
letting this continue.
 
 
 
THE U.S. VS. MEXICO
 

On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican
soccer teams met at the Los Angeles
Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly
pro-Mexican even though most lived in this
country. They booed during the National
Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside
down. As the match progressed, supporters
of the U.S team were insulted, pelted with
projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer
and trash were thrown at the U.S. players
before and after the match. The coach of
the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, “This
was the most painful experience I have ever
had in this profession.”
 
Did you know that immigrants from Mexico
and other non-European countries can come
to this country and get preferences in jobs,
education, and government contracts.
It’s called affirmative action or racial privilege.
The Emperor of Japan or the President of
Mexico could migrate here and immediately
be eligible for special rights unavailable for
Americans of European descent.
 
Corporate America has signed on to the
idea that minorities and third world
immigrants should get special, privileged
status. Some examples are Exxon, Texaco,
Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber,
Starbucks and many more.
 
 
DID YOU KNOW?
 
Did you know that Mexico regularly
intercedes on the side of the defense in
criminal cases involving Mexican nationals?
Did you know that Mexico has NEVER
extradited a Mexican national accused of
murder in the U.S. in spite of agreements
to do so?
According to the L.A. Times, Orange County, California is home to 275 gangs
with 17,000 members, 98% of whom are
Mexican and Asian.
How’s your county doing?
 
According to a New York Times article dated
May 19, 1994, 20 years after the great influx
of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia, 30%
are still on welfare compared to 8% of
households nationwide. A Wall Street Journal
editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law
enforcement officials as stating that Asian
mobsters are the “greatest criminal challenge
the country faces.” Not bad for a group that is
still under 5% of the population.
 
Is education important to you? Here are
the words of a teacher who spent over 20
years in the Los Angeles School system.
“Imagine teachers in classes containing
30-40 students of widely varying attention
spans and motivation, many of whom aren’t
fluent in English. Educators seek learning
materials likely to reach the majority of
students and that means fewer words and
math problems and more pictures and
multicultural references.”
 
WHEN I WAS YOUNG
I remember hearing about the immigrants
that came through Ellis Island .
They wanted to learn English. They wanted
to breathe free. They wanted to become
Americans.   Now, far too many immigrants
come here with demands. They demand to
be taught in their own language.
They demand special privileges …
affirmative action. They demand ethnic
studies that glorify their culture.
  
NOW,
WHY CAN’T WE SEND THEM HOME
 
 
 
 

Kerry thinks troops are stupid

November 4, 2006

The same John Kerry that attacked our troops in Vietnam now attacks our troops in Iraq. At a Democrat campaign rally Kerry said, “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Kerry’s ridiculous actions prove once again why Democrats can’t be trusted with national security.

GAO Chief Warns Economic Disaster Looms

October 29, 2006

Read entire article here

What they don’t talk about is a dirty little secret everyone in Washington knows, or at least should. The vast majority of economists and budget analysts agree: The ship of state is on a disastrous course, and will founder on the reefs of economic disaster if nothing is done to correct it.

If the United States government conducts business as usual over the next few decades, a national debt that is already $8.5 trillion could reach $46 trillion or more, adjusted for inflation. That’s almost as much as the total net worth of every person in America – Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and those Google guys included.

A hole that big could paralyze the U.S. economy; according to some projections, just the interest payments on a debt that big would be as much as all the taxes the government collects today.

And every year that nothing is done about it, Walker says, the problem grows by $2 trillion to $3 trillion.

YOU WORRY ME!

October 24, 2006

YOU WORRY ME!

By American Airlines Pilot – Captain John Maniscalco

“I’ve been trying to say this since 9-11 but you worry me. I wish you didn’t. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don’t blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me, I notice you because I can’t help it anymore. People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don’t fully understand their grievances and hate but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.

On September 11, nineteen ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children’s mothers.

The Palestinians Celebrated, The Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world.

So I notice you now. I don’t want to be worried. I don’t want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.

How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim-Americans and the Arab/Muslims in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter these same good neighbors and children? The events of September 11th changed the answer. It is not my responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.

I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know whether or not you love America . Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car?

Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation, that He will protect and prosper it? Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your “Jihads”? Are you thankful for the freedom that only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country? Are you willing to preserve this freedom by paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America ? If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it.

Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America

Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks because I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more sympathy… I am only interested in action.

What will you do for America – our great country — at this time of crisis, at this time of war?

I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets.

I want to hear you chanting “Allah Bless America”

I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military.

I want to see a commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.

The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack.

Many of these people live and socialize in Muslim communities.

You know them.  You know where they are.

Hand them over to us, now!

But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals.

The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating. They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible before taking action. They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the UnitedStates and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing “leaders” like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.

If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good and pure and true when your “leaders” are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and

It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if large numbers of the world’s Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.

Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because our women proudly show their faces in public rather than cover up like a shameful whore?

Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because we drink wine with dinner, or celebrate Christmas?

Do you and you fellow Muslims hate us because we have befriended Israel , the ONLY FRIENDLY CIVILIZED SOCIETY in the Muslim/Arab area, that thinks and acts like most Americans.

And if you and your fellow Muslims hate us, then why in the world are you even here?

Are you here to take our money?

Are you here to undermine our peace and stability?

Are you here to destroy us?

If so, I want you to leave. I want you to go back to your desert sandpit where women are treated like rats and dogs. I want you to take your religion, your friends, and your family back to your Islamic extremists, and STAY THERE!

We will NEVER give in to your influence, your retarded mentality, your twisted, violent, intolerant religion.

We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us: Our rights under the greatest constitution in the world.

I want to know where every Arab/ Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family. I am pleading with you to et me know. I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American.

But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance

and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand.”

“Until then .. you worry me”
