Still Crazy After All These Years

with 3 comments

Wow, this blog continues to generate a lot of hits and comments.   This was such an important part of my life at one time and I can’t bring myself to close it down, but I just don’t know when I’ll make another post here.   I have had two wonderful chances to become a professional blogger and I have taken advantage of them.   I have become involved with education reform group Laststand4children.org and I am the head of their Illinois chapter.  In addition to giving heck to lazy teachers here in Illinois, I do a lot of blog work for them.  I have also been added to Jack Kimble’s campaign team as he seeks the Republican nomination in 2012.  Please visit http://www.kimble2012.com if you enjoyed my work on this blog.   I just renewed the domain for another year, so I’m around and reading all these comments.   I think you’ll find Jack Kimble’s blog to be a lot like mine.

White Supremacist Group Distances Itself from Tea Party

with 2 comments

Calling recent activities by the Tea Party disgusting, the White People’s Brotherhood released a press statement today announcing that it was no longer aligning itself with the Tea Party or any of its candidates, “We have grown increasingly disturbed by the actions of followers of the Tea Party movement.  Our group cannot afford to have its name linked to extremists or the actions of a radical fringe.  This is not why we began supporting Tea Party candidates.  We might be white supremacists, but there are lines even we won’t cross. After the events of last night, I couldn’t even look my children in the eye when I gave them the white power salute this morning,” said White People’s Brotherhood Chancellor Ray Jordan.

Calling recent violence the actions of a few misguided extremists, Jordan never the less said the following incidents has left the organization with no choice, but to renounce the Tea Party:

  • The videotaped headstomping of a MoveOn.Org activist last night by Rand Paul’s Bourbon County Coordinator Tim Profitt
  • The unlawful handcuffing and restraint of a blogger by Joe Miller’s private unlicensed security guards in Alaska
  • Sharron Angle’s repeated calls for violent overthrow of the nation’s government if not elected

“I saw that young white woman get her head stopped by that Rand Paul volunteer and I thought, is this what white power is all about?  Is this what we’ve come to.  How do I explain it to my daughter?” said Frank Dorman the WPB member who had started a movemement among the membership to ask that campaign contributions be returned and support be withdrawn from the more extremist tea party candidates.

“We still share a lot of the same goals,” said Jordan, “the phrase Obamanation–that was ours.   It’s just hard enough getting people to listen when we explain white power, we don’t need this [Expletive Deleted] too.  I’ll tell you, the Tea Party was trying to highjack our movement.”

The White People’s Brotherhood is a rather small organization, but they may just be the canary in the coal mine for candidates like Rand Paul who have been counting on larger groups like Stormfront for donations and manpower this election season.   If bigger white supremacist groups follow the WPB’s lead, it may be a rough ending to what had seemed like a great election for the GOP and its Tea Party candidates.

Jack Kimble Cracks the Liberal Media

with one comment

[I mentioned before that I had joined the Jack Kimble campaign team.  Well, I’m pleased to announce that my hard work has paid off.  On Monday, Huffington Post’s lead story mentioned the good congressman.  Of course, I helped Mr. Kimble with his response.]

Jon Kyl Backs Republican 14th-Amendment Repeal Effort To Deny Citizenship To Immigrants’ Children

First Posted: 08- 2-10 09:49 AM   |   Updated: 08- 2-10 12:33 PM

On Sunday, Sen. John Kyl (R-Ariz.) became the highest-ranking Republican to call for the repeal of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation, Kyl said that he opposes allowing children of undocumented immigrants to be granted U.S. citizenship and wants Congress to hold hearings on the matter.
In doing so, the Senate’s no. 2 Republican didn’t place himself on the extreme wing of his party’s stance on immigration policy. Rather, he joined what is a growing movement that could very well shape the official policy planks of the GOP.
There are already a number of Republican officials who have preceded Kyl in calling for a reworking of the country’s citizenship laws. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has proposed the piece of legislation that would repeal the 14th Amendment; he is joined on the House side by Rep. Jack Kimble (R-Calif.).
An aide to Graham said that there had been no formal dates set for hearings or the bill’s introduction. “Senator Graham threw this out there on Fox News and it is something that he has been talking about in South Carolina as well,” the aide said. But there was growing talk and legislative activity around the concept.
In the House, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) has introduced the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009, which would attempt to deny children of illegal immigrants U.S. citizenship through statute rather than a constitutional amendment (thereby lowering the vote threshold). He has 93 co-sponsors for that effort including Rep. Nathan Deal, the Georgia Republican who is in a runoff to be the party’s candidate for governor.
Senate candidate Rand Paul (R-Ky.) caused a stir shortly after winning his primary by saying he supported stripping citizenship from children of the undocumented. Former congressman and potential Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo — one of the staunchest anti-illegal immigration voices in national politics — has made repeal of the 14th Amendment a major cause.
There are many obscure Republican candidates who have made the same proposal, including Kevin Craig in Missouri and Gary McLeod (an obscure Christian conservative who is challenging — without much hope — Majority Whip James Clyburn).
But what may be most telling about the 14th amendment repeal campaign — the element that suggests it could be a major philosophical force within the Republican Party — are its roots. Well before it became en vogue for Republicans to advocate fundamental change in citizenship laws, the idea was being bandied about among the intellectual bastions of the conservative movement. The Heritage Foundation produced a report on the matter in 2006. And Fred Thompson — back when he was igniting a whisper campaign that he was the one Republican with the intellectual heft to run for president — was talking about repealing the 14th amendment back in 2007.
“I think that law was created at another time and place for valid reasons,” said the former U.S. senator from Tennessee. “It probably needs to be revisited.”

[Congressman Kimble’s response]
“Thank you for your coverage of this important issue. In California’s 54th District, we have a serious problem with immigration. On my father’s farm alone I know of at least 8 families of illegals. This is something that must be addressed for the good of our nation.

I applaud Senators Kyl and Graham for championing this battle in the Senate and my colleague Lamar Smith for proposing the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009 in The House. Passing it will be one of my top priorities when we return from recess.

Unfortunately, repealing the 14th Amendment will take a very long time. If anybody remembers the battle for that silly ERA Amendment in the 1970s, you know I’m not exaggerating when I say this may take a decade to fix. That is why we must immediately close off our borders to any sexually active women of child bearing age. President Obama, if you are serious about stopping the problem of anchor babies than every sexually active woman is a ticking time bomb.

Repealing a Constitutional Amendment is no small task. It is a solemn task that our country has only undertaken once in its long history. However, the 14th Amendment is an antiquated reminder of the last half of the 19th Century–a time when there was very little immigration in this country to worry about. It is time for us to move forward.

Congressman Jack Kimble
54’th District California”

Carly Fiorina Brings Experience and Hair to Senate

leave a comment »

Carly Fiorina knows that in politics appearance is everything.   That’s why she launched an early salvo at Barbara Boxer the morning after winning a hard fought primary by asking Boxer on television, “God, what is that hair?” Snap!! Fiorina’s own hair is kept short in a stylish bob reminiscent of a young Sandy Duncan.  Fiorino has launched a series of successful campaign ads that have brought her attention.  First, she took advantage of the incestuous accusations in the Mamas and the Papas to kick off her campaign with the slogan Carlyfornia Dreaming.   That was followed up by a Fellini-esqu Demon Sheep ad that was hailed as a breakthrough in cinema verite.

What makes Fiorina such a great candidate is her business experience.  That’s why John McCain made her one of his main campaign spokespeople before she said that he couldn’t run a business and fell out of favor.   Running a business is something she knows something about.  When she left Hewlett Packard it was a major corporation worth over 20 dollars a share.  It was actually even larger when she became CEO and it was over $50 a share.  That gives Fiorina experience with economic downturns and that’s exactly what we need in Washington.

When Lightning Strikes, Atheists Run

with one comment

A lot has been made recently about a statue of Jesus that was struck by lightning.  The giants statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway has been struck by lightning and burned to the ground.  The King of Kings statue was six stories tall and one of the most familiar landmarks in South-West Ohio since it was erected in 2004 outside a church just north of Cincinnati.

I’ve heard several Christians talk about this being caused by graven images because somewhere in the Bible it says we shouldn’t make statues of Jesus.  That seems kind of Moslem to me personally.  I mean if we can’t name an Airport or an expressway after the almighty like we can for Ronald Reagan, the least we can do is build a statue in his honor.  What it seems these Christians leave off is where that lightning would have struck if that statue wasn’t there.  I am willing to bet that the statue threw itself in front of a church bus or sacrificed itself in some way saving commuters on the highway.  I’m sure the church will rebuild an equally stirring, but tasteful poster

Defending Rand Paul

with 4 comments

Rand Paul has been under attack lately since he was the victim of Rachel Maddow’s particular brand of Gotcha Journalism.   This new style of reporting ignores what your guest has carefully prepared to say on your show and instead of listening to his answers like a responsible journalist would, you throw a whole lot of facts at him so that when his statements fail to hold up to your crazy suppositions, you can say “gotcha” and make your guest look like an idiot.

In the Maddow/Paul fiasco Miss Maddow asked Paul if he believed that government should get involved in matters involving private businesses and their rights to refuse service or set their own rules for their establishment.   Being a strict libertarian of course Rand Paul said “No”.  Maddow immediately pounced on him by asking if that meant he was against the civil rights act.  Suddenly, Rand Paul’s answers seemed racist.  Nothing is further from the truth.

Rand Paul is not saying that black people should all go to the back of the bus—not all buses anyway.   What Rand Paul says is that public transportation, which is paid for by city tax dollars should allow black people to sit anywhere they please.   Meanwhile, a private bus company like Greyhound should in theory be allowed to have a black seating section on the back of the bus.   It may seem rather unreasonable to turn back the clock on civil rights 50 years, but alas that is the price of living in a Constitution Republic like ours.  Let us not forget that Thomas Jefferson said, “The price of freedom is eternal witlessness.”

Desegregation and integration would work the same ways in other areas of society.   Jim Crow laws would only be applicable in private settings and not in public buildings:

  • Restaurants: Restaurants would again be allowed to refuse service on the basis of race unless they were in a publicly funded building like a museum.
  • Schools: School integration would continue pretty much unchanged with charter schools being allowed to continue to exclude minorities, while public schools could not.
  • Bathrooms: For minorities, find a bathroom they could use would be as simple as heading to the nearest public building.

This may seem oppressive, but remember there are sacrifices to be made for true liberty.   It may be tempting to restart the protest segregation all over again, but I hope that reasonable people will wait until we have enough time to figure out where the public police department’s jurisdiction ends and the private police department’s begins.  We certainly don’t want police trying to arrest police anymore than we want both the private and public fire departments showing up at the same time.

So Where Has Nate Been?

with 2 comments

Sometimes, I go through writer’s block and nothing in the news catches my ire enough to inspire me to produce a new blog post.   In general though, I figure I’m good for 5 a week.   That number has fallen well off despite this being a banner week for stupid people doing stupid things.  So what gives?  What’s so important.   The only answer I can give is to go to my other blog. Things should return to normal by Saturday.  Please keep visiting.  I still read the responses.

Joe
