Well, well,well. Venturing forth from my own little world of Goldens, gardens, and good housekeeping/housecraft, it is impossible to miss some of the more glaring affronts to decency and American living these days:
The State of Arizona has been beset with attacks even harsher than that from which they currently suffer at the hands of illegal aliens packing heat, drugs and more illegal aliens. Current White House pResident SoetorObama–you know, the one who stated that Daniel Pearl’s beheading “captured the world’s imagination?” Yes, THAT one– has teamed up with Mexico’s President [or is HE a pResident too?] to excoriate that good State for simply resolving to enforce Federal immigration law, already on the books, because the Feds refuse to enforce it themselves. Maricopa County’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio, told to stand down by the Feds earlier this year, continues to maintain that he is enforcing his STATE immigration law and refuses to stop doing his job the way he sees fit.
While no one likes the idea of unpleasantness and violence, things have now come to such an un-pretty pass that even those who once supported the illegal tsunami are now having second thoughts as the border war accelerates and good people like Rob Krantz are found murdered. Sites like BorderInvasion are showing us pictures of what that border area really looks like these days–something GE-owned NBC and all its affiliates will never, apparently do.
In the meantime, back at the ranch…The Dow continues to take significant hits and we are being told to liquidate NOW and GET THE HECK OUTTA DODGE I mean The Market ASAP. http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm, as always, H/T to Bones.
To make matters worse, CAIR continues to be a daily threat to us all, and has zeroed in on one of the greatest, most knowledgeable champions for our Republic in our history as they attack Atlas Shrugs Pamela Geller, demanding that she not be allowed to speak at the Tennessee Tea Party event on May 22-23rd. Fortunately, however, they have not honored this infringement on freedom of speech request and she WILL be there!
May 25th in NY brings us back to the Mosque planned for Ground Zero. There will be a planning meeting on May 25th and a demonstration on June 6th–more details to follow. In the meantime, PLEASE PLEASE go to http://tool.donation-net.net/public/ACT4A/entrance/enter.cfm?dn=1097&source=2013&id=84374&commid=28622718&CFID=8544165&CFTOKEN=99018665 and sign the petition against this outrage–we’re off to a good start with 10,000 signatures but we need millions– So many meetings, so little time!
But all is not lost–there are so many smart, well informed, hard working people to keep us informed as to what is really going on that there is a good chance we might actually survive this worst challenge yet intact. People like Bill Warner, for instance, at the Center for the Study of Political Islam, have put a lot of work into getting the information out there and his new online pamphlet is available for free to read AND PASS ON! Go to http://www.politicalislam.com/blog/sharia-law-for-non-muslims-may-20-2010 and memorize it, and give a H/T to Bev Perlson for letting us know about it!
Bev, another tireless Patriot, co founder of Band of Mothers and advocate for troops and their families continues her work and we’re planning to shine an even brighter light than before on the brave troops that have been detained illegally in Ft. Leavenworth and Camp Pendleton brig, even after being exonerated on appeal, such as Sgt. Larry Hutchins. We have both committed to working on this disgraceful situation until each and every one of those men are free. http://thejaghunter.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/navy-jag-attainder-sergeant-of-marines-lawrence-gordon-hutchins-iii/
As for the Gulf Gusher–I won’t even GO there. It is, as usual, SO much worse than the idiots at BP wanted us to find out, especially since they eschewed the use of the foolproof safety mechanism mandated in Norway because it cost too much money, and they eschewed the use of tankers to simply siphon the mess up and recycle it as they did in the Saudi spill some years back. I have not yet found the words adequate to speak of such a heinous debacle. I’ll let you know if I do but it looks doubtful at present. I’ll just have to fume and fuss and sputter to myself instead.
Well, enough of this. Wishing you a weekend that plugs some small moments of joy into your busy lives and offering only the words of Mahatma Ghandi in consolation:
