>Obama’s Brand Of Change: Liberal Violence

>

“Let’s see here.  I need to shower, shave, eat some oatmeal, put on my new Obama T-shirt, grab my 9mm and hold up a convenience store… 
New fashion rage in Police Mug Shots, These are actual Police Photos.

Just think about this for a second: 
Did you ever see anyone arrested wearing a Bush T-shirt, or for you older guys, an Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan,or even Nixon, or Bob Dole shirt. 
There MUST be a message here, but I can’t quite grasp it. Maybe you can help me out here….

>Is America Like Greece: Inglorious Confiscations Coming?

>

The Inglorious Mess
That Is Greece

Ah, the glory that was Greece! Too bad the modern country is anything but. The nation-state of Greece is going broke, and going broke spectacularly.
And, dare I say it, instructively?
Everybody’s blaming everybody else, there. But the simple truth of the matter is that the politicians of Greece — both socialist and “conservative” — enticed citizens to go along with a sustained binge of spending, spending far beyond revenues.
And then the government lied to European Union HQ in Brussels about how much it was spending over revenues.
And, you guessed it, Greece continued to borrow even more.
Yes, public spending in Greece was more out-of-control thangovernment spending here in America. And that’s why it’s instructive. What is happening right now to Greece is happening elsewhere in Europe — Italy, Spain, Portugal — and is on pace to happen to us, too.
Greece does have one option the good ol’ US of A doesn’t have: It can go begging to the European Union. So far, saner heads in the EU are saying “no,” but that may not last.
While we don’t have that option, Greece lacks ours: With the Euro as its standard, it’s constrained from the monetary fiddling that American leaders are tempted with. Inflation. Hyperinflation.
When things get worse here, we’ll hear talk of huge tax hikes, confiscations, and sovereign default.
But also expect a lot of what Greek politicians did: Lying.
Inglorious, eh?
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

>Price Up Tomatoes – Eliminate Mexican Farm Workers

>

All  who live in AZ can relate to this especially now with all the uproar over illegal immigration reform.  What part of ‘illegal’ don’t they understand.  The quality of education is deteriorating rapidly in Arizona as the teachers only have time to coach the ‘minority’ kids (who are quickly becoming the majority) so they can pass all the state ordered tests or the school won’t get the proper funding.  ‘Teaching’, as we all knew it, has gotten lost in the quagmire. 
1. 900 teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District .  They are $650,000 over their annual budget.  The following English teacher helps to explain one area that looms large over California’s educational crisis.
  
Cheap Tomatoes I hope each person receiving this mail will read it carefully all the way to the end. It is sad what is happening to our great country all because our politicians are afraid they will miss out on a vote. What a travesty!

Cheap Tomatoes 
THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS 
 POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON’T CARE. 
This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet. 

CHEAP TOMATOES?
This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent
From a California school teacher – – –

“As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic
and income levels

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc.., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. 
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) 

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for theunwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) 

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
funding
 for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America ..
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them “Putas” (whores ) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, day care, etc., etc, etc.  Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes. 

Americans, 
We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness “ that we don’t have the will to do anything about it.

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressmen and Senators.

CHEAP LABOR? Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage.

Consumers don’t want expensive produce.

Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth , 
 a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.” 

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for
$5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, 
he pays no 
 income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, 
 he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free. 

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

He qualifies for food stamps..

He qualifies for free (no deductible),
no
 co-pay) health care.

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. 

He requires bilingual teachers and books.

He qualifies for relief from high energy bills…

If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled , they qualify for SSI. 
 Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare .   All of this is at
(our) taxpayer’s expense
 .

He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits. 

Working Americans
are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills AND his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people! 

THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR EITHER PARTY. ‘AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON’T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM AT ONCE!’

THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS 
POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON’T CARE 
AMEN!!!

Never argue with an idiot — 
They’ll bring you down to their level and beat you with their experience!

>Obama’s Puerto Rican Sham: Statehood

>I invite you to start watching the Glenn Beck Program on Fox, as Paul Christensen, below, suggests. If you are busy at 5 p.m, record it to watch later. It is outrageous that the LA ( Latino) city council members – and other liberal cities like St. Paul, MN – are actually acting like a nation of their own and boycotting the state of Arizona and others like Utah, and Texas whose legislatures plan to pass similar border legislation to that which Arizona has passed. 


The plain truth of the matter is this: 
The Feds refuse to regulate illegal immigration. There are more than 450,000 illegals in Arizona alone. Probably one hundred thousand in each of the western states and far more in California. The drain on human services for Arizona and other states is terrific and unsustainable over time. Obama knows this. He is itching for the chance to bail out all of the states and eliminate states’ rights, creating one big national dictatorship. 

Barak Obama and his progressive friends won’t enforce laws already on the books in a meaningful way – people coming to the US must have visas, passports, or legal citizenship of the USA before they can come here. These people from Mexico and beyond have no legitimate right to be here. And we’re getting their worst people – the thugs, criminals, drug runners, and murderers. 
The Federal Government is not doing its job, so we should not criticize Arizona for wanting to stem the tide of illegal immigration. I wholeheartedly support the efforts of states passing such laws, even if portions of the laws may later be declared unconstitutional by myopic judges who rule by the false notion of “political correctness.”  I hope that will not happen in Arizona’s case because the law itself says it prohibits racial profiling and a sheriff must have reasonable cause to detain someone on the street and even ask for their identification. Reasonable cause doesn’t include color of skin. 

My brother-in-law, Paul Christensen, who lives in St. George, Utah, has written the following on the subject. He pays special note to Puerto Rico which today may be called on to vote for statehood. The government knows Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S., doesn’t want statehood. It would mean paying Federal taxes. The machinery for statehood is expensive and would require crippling local and state taxes on those poor people. I suggest you tune in tonight to Glenn Beck for more on this. 
The progressives know that if you announce a legitimate statehood vote in reasonable time in advance, Puerto Rico citizens will turn down statehood. They have done so three times. Obama hopes to slip this one in on us. What happened to “transparency?”
The Obama Progressives will offer them a “false choice.” First they will ask “if you are satisfied with the current state of affairs in Puerto Rico” and most of them will vote “No.” in a second vote there will only be two things on the ballot – statehood or a continuation of poverty in Puerto Rico? You ask a question this way and you can make the people say anything you want them to say, including that they want statehood.
It’s a trap! Obama, the community organizer, and his band of criminals surrounding him, have concocted an evil plan. It’s the wrong way to hold an election and should be rejected by every fair minded citizen of America. Obama has 200 attorneys at your expense writing this kind of unconstitutional malarky – many are attorneys and some are ex-convicts or communists and Marxists.  All of these progressives are for the downfall of our Constitution and free enterprise and for making Puerto Rico a state, which is just the first step.

Next they will make the District of Columbia a state. Obama is a dictator in the making. To remain in office for the next forty years like Castro… he must stack the deck. This is his way of creating a majority of poor people who will always vote for the man who offers them the biggest handout. Instead of a way for man to pull themselves up by their bootstraps as Lincoln said. Free Enterprise is under siege. Government ownership and manipulation is gaining stature in America. Freedom of Choice is leaving us.  Study the gospel of Jesus Christ. See if there weren’t parallels to this in the Grand Council before we came to earth. It’s all about agency and the freedom of man…

If you have not been watching Glenn Beck, I am urging you to do so.  This is so important that we watch this because of the things that are unfolding right now with the progressives and their attempt to take over the nation.  If you have Fox news i would emphatically urge you to watch.  And if it comes on at a time where it is not possible to watch please Tevo it.  This is crucial. 
Mr Beck makes some valid points and it seems to go along with what the progressives are trying to accomplish.  That is a one world government.  I do not believe any of us want this so it is important that we wake ourselves up so we can do what we can to educate ourselves and other as to what is happening. 
Today Puerto Rico is being asked to vote on whether they want to become a state.  They have rejected it three times in the past and now the wording  on this vote is different.  The progressives have manipulated the machine so bad that the people of Puerto Rico, if they vote to pass this one this time they will become a state whether they like it or not.  The reason they are doing this is because they are trying to stack the voting machine on the side of the Democrats.  They have done this with the blacks since during the last election they received 95% of the black vote.  These people do not think but rather vote the color of their skin.  They talk about prejudice, but if this voting is not prejudice I do not know what is.  I WATCH the news every day and the blacks are so vehemently siding with Obama it makes me sick.  If I see a black making comments, I will tune them out or I will change the channel because I already know what they will say.  
We see what is happening with Arizona with the influx of the Illegal aliens.  Now Arizona is in a real pickle with this one so they had to choice other than to do what they did.  It is up to the Federal Government to secure the borders and they have been asked by the people of Arizona to do this for years which it has neglected to do.  I keep hearing this come up and that is, it would be impossible for us to deport 12 million of the illegal Mexicans back to Mexico.  But why not stop the influx.  The reason they do not do this is because they do not want to deport them but rather want to be able to pass the amnesty so they can secure their vote.  They are being lied to and manipulated by the Democrats.  The Democratic party is no longer the Democrats but they are the party of the progressives.  It is the progressive party!  Hilary Clinton has came out and said that she is a progressive.  She makes no bones about it.  Progressives to me equates to Unamerican. They want to overthrow the government and the Constitution of the United States of America.  They are so brazen that they now make no bones about it.  We used to hear that we need the Illegal Mexicans here to pick the fruit that the Americans would not pick.  Are you trying to tell me that 12 million Mexicans are here doing seasonal work and picking fruit.  That is preposterous.  They are employed by other means.  Taking your kids jobs and my jobs.  They are taking my tax monies while paying no taxes at all.  They are the biggest leaches and are certainly not concerned about your or my welfare and they have no morals or ethics.  87% of the Mexican that come into the United States have a record so that tells you what kind of people that we are getting.  We are not getting the cream of the crop but the bottom of the barrel.  They are killing ranchers in Arizona, sheriffs, and even a two year old girl.  Did you hear any of this in the media?  I will bet not.   All the Democrats want is to keep themselves in office so they can destroy our country.

These people from Mexico and beyond have no legitimate right to be here. And we’re getting their worst people – the thugs, criminals, drug runners, and murderers. 
The Federal Government is not doing its job, so we should not criticize Arizona for wanting to stem the tide of illegal immigration. I wholeheartedly support the efforts of states passing such laws, even if portions of the laws may later be declared unconstitutional by myopic judges who rule by the false notion of “political correctness.”  I hope that will not happen in Arizona’s case because the law itself says it prohibits racial profiling and a sheriff must have reasonable cause to detain someone on the street and even ask for their identification. Reasonable cause doesn’t include color of skin. 

My brother-in-law, Paul Christensen, who lives in St. George, Utah, has written the following on the subject. He pays special note to Puerto Rico which today may be called on to vote for statehood. The government knows Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S., doesn’t want statehood. It would mean paying Federal taxes. The machinery for statehood is expensive and would require crippling local and state taxes on those poor people. I suggest you tune in tonight to Glenn Beck for more on this. 
The progressives know that if you announce a legitimate statehood vote in reasonable time in advance, Puerto Rico citizens will turn down statehood. They have done so three times. Obama hopes to slip this one in on us. What happened to “transparency?”
The Obama Progressives will offer them a “false choice.” First they will ask “if you are satisfied with the current state of affairs in Puerto Rico” and most of them will vote “No.” in a second vote there will only be two things on the ballot – statehood or a continuation of poverty in Puerto Rico? You ask a question this way and you can make the people say anything you want them to say, including that they want statehood.
It’s a trap! Obama, the community organizer, and his band of criminals surrounding him, have concocted an evil plan. It’s the wrong way to hold an election and should be rejected by every fair minded citizen of America. Obama has 200 attorneys at your expense writing this kind of unconstitutional malarky – many are attorneys and some are ex-convicts or communists and Marxists.  All of these progressives are for the downfall of our Constitution and free enterprise and for making Puerto Rico a state, which is just the first step.

Next they will make the District of Columbia a state. Obama is a dictator in the making. To remain in office for the next forty years like Castro… he must stack the deck. This is his way of creating a majority of poor people who will always vote for the man who offers them the biggest handout. Instead of a way for man to pull themselves up by their bootstraps as Lincoln said. Free Enterprise is under siege. Government ownership and manipulation is gaining stature in America. Freedom of Choice is leaving us.  Study the gospel of Jesus Christ. See if there weren’t parallels to this in the Grand Council before we came to earth. It’s all about agency and the freedom of man…
(Thanks, Paul, for your update. I have added my two cents to what you said).

If you have not been watching Glenn Beck, I am urging you to do so.  This is so important that we watch this because of the things that are unfolding right now with the progressives and their attempt to take over the nation.  If you have Fox news i would emphatically urge you to watch.  And if it comes on at a time where it is not possible to watch please Tevo it.  This is crucial. 
Mr Beck makes some valid points and it seems to go along with what the progressives are trying to accomplish.  That is a one world government.  I do not believe any of us want this so it is important that we wake ourselves up so we can do what we can to educate ourselves and other as to what is happening. 
Today Puerto Rico is being asked to vote on whether they want to become a state.  They have rejected it three times in the past and now the wording  on this vote is different.  The progressives have manipulated the machine so bad that the people of Puerto Rico, if they vote to pass this one this time they will become a state whether they like it or not.  The reason they are doing this is because they are trying to stack the voting machine on the side of the Democrats.  They have done this with the blacks since during the last election they received 95% of the black vote.  These people do not think but rather vote the color of their skin.  They talk about prejudice, but if this voting is not prejudice I do not know what is.  I WATCH the news every day and the blacks are so vehemently siding with Obama it makes me sick.  If I see a black making comments, I will tune them out or I will change the channel because I already know what they will say.  
We see what is happening with Arizona with the influx of the Illegal aliens.  Now Arizona is in a real pickle with this one so they had to choice other than to do what they did.  It is up to the Federal Government to secure the borders and they have been asked by the people of Arizona to do this for years which it has neglected to do.  I keep hearing this come up and that is, it would be impossible for us to deport 12 million of the illegal Mexicans back to Mexico.  But why not stop the influx.  The reason they do not do this is because they do not want to deport them but rather want to be able to pass the amnesty so they can secure their vote.  They are being lied to and manipulated by the Democrats.  The Democratic party is no longer the Democrats but they are the party of the progressives.  It is the progressive party!  Hilary Clinton has came out and said that she is a progressive.  She makes no bones about it.  Progressives to me equates to Unamerican. They want to overthrow the government and the Constitution of the United States of America.  They are so brazen that they now make no bones about it.  We used to hear that we need the Illegal Mexicans here to pick the fruit that the Americans would not pick.  Are you trying to tell me that 12 million Mexicans are here doing seasonal work and picking fruit.  That is preposterous.  They are employed by other means.  Taking your kids jobs and my jobs.  They are taking my tax monies while paying no taxes at all.  They are the biggest leaches and are certainly not concerned about your or my welfare and they have no morals or ethics.  87% of the Mexican that come into the United States have a record so that tells you what kind of people that we are getting.  We are not getting the cream of the crop but the bottom of the barrel.  They are killing ranchers in Arizona, sheriffs, and even a two year old girl.  Did you hear any of this in the media?  I will bet not.   All the Democrats want is to keep themselves in office so they can destroy our country.
