Thankful Memorial Day!

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.


It is the VETERAN who serves under the American flag.

I am grateful for all who have served this nation from our Founding Fathers to today.  And a special big "THANK YOU" to my young neice Samantha who just a few months ago joined the Marines!  The whole family is very proud of you.  HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

~May God bless the Republic of The United States of America

Illegal Super-Highway

Here are two video news clips about the dangers of not controlling immigration at our borders.  I find it especially interesting that these news clips are out of Atlanta, Ga.  This is a national crisis, not just an  Arizona problem or Border problem.  It's about the law, NOT Racism!

http://www.wsbtv.com/video/23438021/ Link to TV news video from Atlanta, GA. Prayer rugs in the desert.

http://www.wsbtv.com/video/23438712/  Part 2. Shows list of OTM's Other than Mexicans.

We, in Arizona, know you're boycotting us -- but you really should come out here and see our Beautiful Sonoran Desert.

It's just gorgeous right now!We know you'd love it and maybe you can share what you saw with the rest of the country so they can love it too!
This is on an 'illegal super - highway' from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.
This area is located in a wash, approximately 1.5 miles long, just south of Tucson, Arizona. If a flood came, all this would be washed to the river and then onto the sea!
It is estimated over 5,000 discarded backpacks are in this wash. Countless water containers, food wrappers, clothing, feces, including thousands of soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it.
And of course the trail leading out of the wash in our city, heads directly NORTH to Tucson, then leads to your town tomorrow.

Consider, too, the ugly reality of the rape tree, often found at dump sites. The coyotes who lead groups into the country will sometimes peel a woman out of the group, rape her and hang her panties from a tree as a kind of trophy. The rape tree pictured here was part of a massive dump in the heavily trafficked Altar Valley.

In an article from The Tucson Weekly:
       There's one additional issue these dumpsites clarify: Illegal immigration into Arizona
 is just a vast border-area problem, correct?
   Not even close. A lot of the trash pickup at the Ironwood takes place on trails threading around Silverbell Mine, 75 miles north of the line. BLM has cleaned alien layups in metro Phoenix and, incredibly, in the Agua Fria National Monument, 40 miles north of central Phoenix.

Illegal alien trash dumps can also be found within the Tucson city limits. Want to see one? Drive east from downtown on Interstate 10, exit at Wilmot Road, and turn left. Follow Wilmot for 1.4 miles; turn left onto the dirt path, park and follow the garbage.

   Some of it, on the fringes, is urban trash left by nearby residents. But if you walk back toward the interstate, or west toward the Pima Air and Space Museum, the ground overflows with clothes, backpacks, water bottles and plastic trash bags, which illegals use as raincoats.

   When groups hole up here waiting for their pickup rides, they're aided by locals who make money delivering food and drinks. The evidence is all over the ground, in discarded pizza boxes, Kentucky Fried Chicken tubs and soft-drink containers.

   We know Arabs are coming, from the discovery of three prayer rugs near Douglas and an Arabic diary inside a backpack in Hereford. In 2004, a rancher west of Fort Huachuca answered his door to greet a female illegal wanting to use the phone. The call was to Libya. ~ TucsonWeekly.com by Leo W. Banks

What is America's True Form of Government?

This is an excerpt from "Overview of America" produced by The John Birch Society. It is narrated by John McManus. The true American form of government was meant to be a constitutional republic not a democracy, or anything else. Democracy means mob rule. 51% of the people rule the other 49%.

Hamilton said: “We are a Republican Government. Real liberty is never
found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.” And Samuel Adams
warned: “Remember, Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts
and murders itself! There never was a democracy that ‘did not commit

I know this isn't being taught in High School. Parents show your kids. Home schoolers definitely need to use this as a lesson as well.

Thanks for finding this contribution goes to Daniel Orcutt.

Is Alzheimers Now a Disease of the Young?

Symptoms of Alzheimer's now appears as a disease of the young and politically correct. For my day job, I work for an agency where I go in-home to take care of elderly clients. Many of these clients have Alzheimer's. Two main tactics used in caring for the elderly with this disease is to redirect and...simply put, lie. It's difficult getting used to the latter. But it is the most effective approach to keeping them calm and getting them to do what you want. "Helen, let's go down to the salon and get your hair fixed up for tonight." (said in my best I'm going to a party voice) In reality I am taking her to the bathroom to give her a shower, which is the last thing she wants to do. This isn't cruel or wrong when taking care of Alzheimer's patients. I am keeping Helen happy and calm while taking care of important basic needs that are good for her health. Using this same approach on the masses is another story.

Liberal politicians and mass media are trying to act as the "Caregivers" to a vast number of the population diseased with these same symptoms of Alzheimer's, short-term memory and a childlike inability to comprehend what is best for them. Political correctness is the number one tool used to Lie and Redirect the average person from dealing with reality. Here are just a few examples:

~It's in the New York Times today except they don't call it redistribution of wealth because that's no longer politically correct! It's now wealth inequality!
~... but I just had to take this opportunity to wish you a happy 'Spring Holiday' season. It's sad but true: Davenport, Iowa actually went after Good Friday and tried to change it into yet another completely meaningless, politically correct celebration of the change in weather - like 'winter solstice' instead of Christmas. (Glenn Beck)
~the White House labeled Nidal Malik Hasan — the terrorist who killed 13 and wounded 30 more at Fort Hood — an extremist? Media outlets nationwide referred to him as a "shooter" and a "gunman." He's been called "troubled" and "harassed." NOT a terrorist!
~The news media, the filter through which Americans receive their information, is reluctant to define the enemy. Indeed, within the last week, it has become politically incorrect to describe the Islamic terrorists who blew up the World Trade Center and Pentagon, murdering thousands of innocent Americans, as "Islamic terrorists." (By David Kupelian)
~The refusal to use the term "Radical Islam" has been in the news repeatedly lately. Some politicians claim there is no such thing!
~Conservative scholar Robert Bork has charged that the educational system is a battleground where the future of America is being undermined and ill-served. He has counseled against the troubles which will ensue as a result of anti-religious policies in the schools, permissive attitudes toward homosexuality and abortion, as well as welfare policies that have destroyed families since Lyndon B. Johnson's War on Poverty.
~Controversy in Obama's campaign for President to Texas textbook debate on whether to use Obama's middle name Hussein

We could go on and on with ludicrous examples. Or ludemocracy as I call it where the liberal politicians are concerned.

This redirecting and lying by way of political correctness leads to the mindless Group Think as a way of controlling the public. In this excerpt: ... A book authored by Janis, I. L. & Mann, L. (1977) Decision-making: A psychological analysis of conflict, choice, and commitment (New York Free Press), explores the concept of ‘Group Think.’ Eight symptoms of Group Think are listed below:

1. Illusion of Invulnerability: Members ignore obvious danger, take extreme risk, and are overly optimistic.
2. Collective Rationalization: Members discredit and explain away warning contrary to group thinking.
3. Illusion of Morality: Members believe their decisions are morally correct, ignoring the ethical consequences of their decisions.
4. Excessive Stereotyping: The group constructs negative stereotypes of rivals outside the group.
5. Pressure for Conformity: Members pressure any in the group who express arguments against the group's stereotypes, illusions, or commitments, viewing such opposition as disloyalty.
6. Self-Censorship: Members withhold their dissenting views and counter-arguments.
7. Illusion of Unanimity: Members perceive falsely that everyone agrees with the group's decision; silence is seen as consent.
8. Mind guards: Some members appoint themselves to the role of protecting the group from adverse information that might threaten group complacency.

Creepy, huh? The best cure for this disease is to remember what's right. Read, question, learn, and decide for yourself what you believe and what you know. Then act and live accordingly.

God bless the USA

Just To Be Clear

This is a new blog, so I want to be clear from the beginning..."I am not anti-Hispanics, I am anti-Illegals. I love law abiding people all over the world. I especially love those who aren't secretly or blatently trying to undermine the U.S. and bring us down. Taking away the freedoms we all hold dear. Whether they are American or non-American.

The "make love, not war" mentality of the '60's will not keep us free and safe. We need to be vigilant and DEFEND our liberty. Otherwise it's "be free, no more". There is an incredible website called http://ActForAmerica.org that I highly recommend for anyone wanting to help do their part in preserving America.

Arizona Immigration Law

State of Sonora, Mexico is angry at the flood of Mexicans returning to Mexico. According to a story in the Tucson Citizen, Nine state legislators from the Mexican state of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona's new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico.

'How can they pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . 'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking only in Spanish. 'Mexico is not prepared for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans (working in Arizona and sending money to their families) return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona.

Sign The Petition

Sign this petition from Act! for America opposing the Mosque at Ground Zero. Go to http://actforamerica.org Not only do they want to build a 13 story mosque right next to the worst terrorist attack here in the states, but they want the opening day to be on 9-11-11! The ten year anniversary of the attack.

We Stand With the Victims of 9/11,
We Oppose the Mosque at "Ground Zero," and
We Urge You to Join Us in Opposition

To Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Elected Officials of New York:
We the undersigned join with millions of Americans who are opposed to the founding of a mosque at the very site where Islamist jihadists destroyed the World Trade Center and took the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

We are opposed to the grotesque symbolism represented by the building of this mosque at "ground zero." We are especially appalled that those pushing for this mosque have designated its grand opening date for September 11, 2011 – the ten year anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.

We are deeply disturbed by the insensitivity to the families of the victims of the 9/11 jihadist attack exhibited by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his supporters. We find it grossly hypocritical that Islamists and their allies repeatedly lecture Americans about the need to be "sensitive" to Muslims while Imam Rauf and his allies practice the height of intolerance and insensitivity through the blatant act of building a mosque at "ground zero."

We are offended by the views Imam Rauf has expressed about 9/11, such as his conspiratorial theory that Muslims did not perpetrate the 9/11 attack and that America's policies were partly to blame for the attack. Such views are a slap in the face of the victims and families of 9/11.

We find it repulsive that Imam Rauf and his followers and supporters would seek to build a mosque near ground zero promoting the same Sharia ideology that the 9/11 hijackers used as the justification for their act of unconscionable murder.

Therefore, in deference to the families of the 9/11 victims and their memory, we call upon the elected officials of New York to oppose the building of this mosque near ground zero and for them to urge Feisal Abdul Rauf and his followers to find another location for it.

Press Release from Pima County Republican Party


Obama Sympathizes with Calderón and Posner Apologizes to China

It’s nice to know that Arizona has achieved global prominence in the human rights arena, even if this prominence is not based on reality. Although SB 1070 is not in effect yet, Obama and his administration have already decided to throw Arizona under the bus. Assistant Secretary of State Posner wasted no time apologizing to China – yes, China – about SB1070. When President Calderon of Mexico criticized Arizona, Obama supported him. The Democrats in Congress even gave President Calderon’s uninformed criticism a standing ovation. Apparently unaware that Arizona’s new law expressly forbids the racial profiling that they condemn, President Obama, President Calderon, Attorney General Holder, Homeland Security Napolitano, and Assistant Secretary of State Posner are the latest examples of those who have criticized Arizona’s new law without either reading or understanding it. The hypocrisy of this is breathtaking. Federal law grants law enforcement authority to check immigration status without the lawful stop and reasonable suspicion that Arizona requires. The treatment of illegal immigrants by the governments of Mexico and China is far harsher, with far fewer procedural safeguards, than Arizona’s new law. Pima GOP Chairman Bob Westerman said, “Obama and his administration have convicted Arizona of human rights abuses, while ignoring the outrages that occur regularly in Mexico and China. And they have done so while grossly misrepresenting the law.”

It’s time for the Obama administration to get a grip. It’s time they ask why the vast majority of Americans support Arizona’s new law. And, before they get concerned about the potential for abuse of Arizona’s law, they need to take a hard look at the even greater potential for abuse under Federal law. Moreover, any attempt to compare Arizona’s new law to China’s human rights record, where thousands died in Tiananmen Square, is deceitful and dishonest.
