Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

You don’t know who Jose is? Well, he is an illegal immigrant who has been found guilty of 7 felonies and deported from this country 5 times. Yes, 5 TIMES!!! On his 6th return, he was incarcerated in a San Francisco jail when ICE got wind of it and put a detainer on him to the San Fransico’s Sheriffs Department. San Fransico, being a sanctuary city, ignored the detainer and loosed him back into the general population, where he committed further felonies by possessing a gun and murdering Kate Steinly, an innocent just walking down the street with her father. Kate died and Zakarte was found innocent of all death charges. Isn’t San Fransico and America great? How do you feel about this case? I would be interested to know.

I have tried to divest myself of politics for some time now. I rarely watch the news and only listen to news radio when driving at work. I am so dismayed and disillusioned with the pettiness and ignorant pursuits into individuals past rather than doing the people’s business. It is hard to believe that The Republican Party has the reigns yet they act just as much Democrat as the liberals do. Moreover, citizens (use the term loosely here) keep voting these same con artist scumbags back into office because they, these constituents, are still the ignorant lemmings they have always been. I have also lost my faith in these people because they don’t act like concerned citizens but more like greedy, selfish freeloaders.

I listened to the news tonight and found that some Democrat Senators are being accused of “groping” women and their “fan base”, fellow Democrats, are protecting them BECAUSE they aren’t Republicans. Pissing match over some directorship of an illegal Obama created adency. Pocahontas Warren is upset and was called out by Trump as a fraud. Meanwhile 6 or 7 Senators can’t get onboard for tax reform. This is it? This is what Congress works for? About to go on another break and nothing getting done again. Truly pathetic and showing good reason why they shouldn’t receive retirement or free healthcare or most other perks. They have already set up ways to get rich while stifling American progress.

ACT is a really caring and passionate individual with a heart of gold. Always wanting to help others in any way I can. Opinionated, yes, but always looking for ways to better myself and learn to let go of the things I can’t control or change. I have had some major pitfalls and crisis in my life over the past couple years. Keeping the Christmas spirit and my GOD ever present during these times has allowed me to endure and rebound; ever smiling and avoiding those things that promote negative feelings. While shopping the other day, looking for my Christmas puzzles to distract me and satisfy my time, I jumped over to the DVD section to get my latest addition to my Star Wars collection when a movie caught my eye. I didn’t see it in the theaters and it just won’t come out on prime so I decided to buy it. The movie was called “13 Hours” and is the account of the real story of what happened at Benghazi (not the complete account as the information is being stifled by the Dems). I have watched it 3 times in two days and each session has the same affect as the others. I shake my head and cry. It makes me sick, sad and mad. It brought back why I was on here in the first place yet, other than the continual phone calls and emails to Congress, I know that nothing has changed and won’t get resolved.

This movie, along with all the other egregious acts of the Obama administration and its cronies, are yanking me back to the conflict. I really don’t have the energy to go through and hash this over once again. How wonderful this country could be if we took all the “breaks and holidays” away from Congress and made them do their work. The work that still needs to be done is to get all the information about these issues that has plagued us for so long. Stalling or obstruction needs to be immediately met with jail time. As Hillbilly would say, no one is above the law and she, and all other criminals in the administration, should be brought to justice. When these acts end up being punished with long prison terms or execution, I believe that much of the criminal Congressional and cabinet elements would cease to be. I find that if there is no accountability then people tend to be bolder the next time they commit acts of criminality or treason. It is never too late and there should never be a statute of limitations on acts of this kind.

The movie is worth watching, if you can. It is graphic and emotional, but most of all it shows how the people who are there care the most and try to do the right thing when the system fails them. This is the problem with politics, politicians and the bureaucracy of today in America. You can bet your last dime that whatever happens, when you need help or relief, the system will always fail you.

The Trump/Russia collusion story is starting to turn into a constitutional crisis. Not because President Trump colluded with the Russians. He didn’t. Not because NOT-President Clinton paid Russians for a dossier so fake it wouldn’t even get published in Penthouse Letters. No, the constitutional crisis comes from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt.

There is a real problem when unaccountable and infinitely funded government agents are assigned to investigate people looking for crimes they may have committed, rather than to investigate crimes looking for the people who may have committed them.

Such witch hunts serve to discourage those who work for Trump, and any who would work for any Republican presidential candidate in the future. The only crimes we see in the Russia collusion investigation are the fake dossier, which was apparently paid for by the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the FBI that refused to indict Clinton when it should have, and the use of that fake dossier to get wiretaps on Trump’s campaign staff. Those crimes need to be investigated. If we don’t get to the bottom of it, and put the people responsible in prison, we can kiss the Republic goodbye.

The premise is that more diversity in a particular occupation, the better. “Strength in Diversity” is the mantra.

Now, no-one’s fighting for more women in the fields of plumber, HVAC, or construction. Where they want more “inclusion” is in medicine, law, and “STEM” — Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. So the question arises, WHY?

If we use the mantra “Strength in Diversity,” applied to such fields, the only way women could add anything is if they think differently than the men already in the field. This brings up the logical inconsistency. If men and women have, in general, similar thought patterns, then bringing more women into the field will not change things much, and if men and women do not have similar thought patterns, then the notion of sex parity in these fields goes out the window.

Some studies do suggest that men and women do, generally speaking, think differently. Obviously, there are outliers in both groups. In the technology fields, most of the women think more like their co-workers than like typical women, and often have more male friends than female.

While there may be some benefit to ensuring that young girls do not exclude themselves from STEM fields because “girls don’t do computers,” I do not think that that attitude is really prevalent anymore. Girls know that they can study Computer Science, or Math, or Engineering, but just aren’t that interested. Pushing them into fields in which they have no interest will not be doing them any favors either.

The following was posted by a friend of mine on his Facebook page:

So much for FREEDOM of expression! So much for FREE speech!

After I posted that I believe the players have the rights to do whatever they want, kneel or stand during the National Anthem, and I have the right not to watch the games on TV or physically go to the games. But that is not good enough for some people. So unless I support athletes kneeling during the National Anthem, I am a racist!

Freedom of expression and free speech must go both ways. But it does not. A few idiots sent me private messages saying that I am a member of the KKK, a White Supremacist, and I am a Neo Nazi! Of course I blocked them immediately from ever contacting me ever again. They said that the ONLY reason why I succeeded in America after arriving to this country with nothing while not knowing a word of English is because I benefited from White Privileges!

Seriously? Do I look white? I am NOT white just in case if someone needs eye glasses, and yes, I am offended. I respect the flag as well as everyone who served. This is MY personal belief and I am NOT trying to change anyone’s opinion. This also has NOTHING to do with President Trump. I could not care less what he said or did not say. I felt about this long before he said a word about it.

My Father served in the military. He also worked for the US Embassy for many years. He helped many Americans when my former country was fallen to the Communists. He saved many lives, including Americans. Two of my three uncles were in the service and they died. We were allies of the United States to fight Communism in Vietnam.

I had a hand gun pointed at my temple by the Communist Police when I was around 10-11 in the middle of the school yard, in front of all other students, because I refused to stand for the Communist National Anthem. I refused to recognize the Communist Flag. My parents did not even know about this.

After I came to America, I thought things would be different. It sure was, but I was in quite a shock. I do not recall seeing anyone that looked like me in my High School. Just about everyone was white. People looked at me very strangely. I was put in some “retarded” classes because I could not speak English and the school did not know how to handle me. They did not realize that my education was far more advanced than anyone can imagine. Just about everything I was taught in High School was in my curriculum in South Vietnam in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. In fact, quite a few things in my 4 years of college were taught in Vietnam in middle school.
Two of my closest friends in High School are chess players, Chuck Adelman and David Cole. They were as nice and kind to me as possible. They are the only two people I still keep in touch with from High School. And while others were doing homework or enjoying life, I had to work. My first job was at a local Shop Rite, a supermarket chain in NJ. They gave me a job cleaning the toilet and mopping the floor for $3.35 an hour before tax. But since I was too young, around 14-15, they could not give me too many hours. So I had to find other odd jobs to make minimum wages to help my family who were still in Vietnam. Is that the definition of White Privileges?

Around 300 extended members of my wife’s family died in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. So we both have a little bit of a different experience than most others. But we cannot have any opinion because it sometimes may not be the same as others? We have two choices in life. To do everything possible to succeed, or blame everyone and everything for our failures! So instead of wallowing in self-pity because of racism and discrimination, we used our tough life experiences, and our setbacks, to fuel us to succeed.

This is the problem with this country today. Too many people no longer listen. There is no peaceful and respectful dialog. There is very little tolerance on all sides. Name calling is a “normal” thing now. It is easy to insult on Twitter and Facebook. The attitude is how can anyone disagree with me? Something is wrong with you when you cannot go along with what I believe.

I am thankful every day that I live in a FREE country. I am thankful every day that I live in a country where if I work hard, I have an opportunity to succeed. This is not something I will ever take for granted. And no, I will never disrespect the flag of the United States, my second home, a country that gave me a second chance in life.

Please slow down and think just like in chess. Please do not contribute more to the current political vitriol. Be civil and be respectful, especially to those who do not agree with you.

Thank you!

The progs’ stupidity knows no bounds. As evidence, I present a survey given to students in a Sociology class at San Diego State University:

  1. I can arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.
  2. I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed.
  3. I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper and see people of my race widely represented.
  4. When I am told about our national heritage or about “civilization,” I am shown that people of my color made it what it is.
  5. I can be sure that my children will be given curricular materials that testify to the existence of their race.
  6. I can go into a music shop and count of finding the music of my race represented, into a supermarket and find the food I grew up with, into a hairdresser’s shop and find someone who can deal with my hair.
  7. Whether I use checks, credit cards, or cash, I can count on my skin color not to work against the appearance of financial responsibility.
  8. I am not made acutely aware that my shape, bearing, or body odor will be taken as a reflection of my race.
  9. I can worry about racism without being seen as self-interested or self-seeking.
  10. I can take a job or enroll in a college with an affirmative action policy without having my co-workers or peers assume I got it because of my race.
  11. I can be late to a meeting without having the lateness reflect on my race.
  12. I can choose public accommodation with out [sic] fearing that people of my race cannot get in or will be mistreated.
  13. I am never asked to speak for all of the people of my racial group.
  14. I can be pretty sure that if I ask to talk with the “person in charge” I will be facing a person of my race.
  15. If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven’t been singled out because of my race.
  16. I can easily by [sic] posters, postcards, picture books, greeting cards, dolls, toys, and children’s magazines featuring people of my race.
  17. I can choose blemish cover or bandages in “flesh” color and have them more or less match my skin.
  18. I can do well in a challenging situation without being called a credit to my race.
  19. I can walk into a classroom and know I will not be the only member of my race.
  20. I can enroll in a class at college and be sure that the majority of my professors will be of my race.

 

Almost every single one of those instances of “white privilege” is nothing more than a result of Whites’ being the majority of people in the United States. A friend’s daughter is in college in Japan. She is White. Naturally, she has almost all of the same issues, even more so, than Blacks do here. But let’s look at those that are NOT merely the result of Whites’ being the majority in the U.S.:

I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed.

Well, why would you get harassed? Do Asians get harassed? Do Semites? Do Indians? No. So if you get harassed, it has nothing to do with your not being White, but something else.

Whether I use checks, credit cards, or cash, I can count on my skin color not to work against the appearance of financial responsibility.

Again, do Asians, Semites, and Indians have these problems? If not, then it has nothing to do with your not being White.

I can take a job or enroll in a college with an affirmative action policy without having my co-workers or peers assume I got it because of my race.

That is a perfectly reasonable assumption for them to make. If people of your race could normally get in, there would be no need for the affirmative action policy in the first place.

I can be late to a meeting without having the lateness reflect on my race.

Perhaps you should get to meetings on time (or even early), and let THAT reflect on your race. If the vast majority of your race made meetings on time, then this would not be a problem.

I can choose public accommodation with out [sic] fearing that people of my race cannot get in or will be mistreated.

There is never an excuse to mistreat a customer, and I do not know of any establishment of public accommodation that rejects customers based on their race.

If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven’t been singled out because of my race.

The Infernal Revenue Service has no idea what your race is, and they don’t care. Audits are chosen by computer formula, and race is not part of that formula. As for the traffic cop, believe me it is very difficult to determine the race of a driver of a car going 70mph at radar range. Just obey the traffic laws.

I can do well in a challenging situation without being called a credit to my race.

Once again it must be asked, do Semites and Indians and Asians have this problem? If not, then it has nothing to do with your not being White.

This, of course, necessitates a little Statler and Waldorf:

Waldorf: [responding to Paul Williams doing "Old Fashioned Love Song"] He’s a credit to his race.
Statler: What race is that?
Waldorf: The hundred-yard dash.

I saved this one for last, to put it in the place of (dis)honor, as it was particularly stupid:

I can worry about racism without being seen as self-interested or self-seeking.

Well, it self-interested and self-seeking. If you are seen that way, it is because you are.

What is perceived as White Privilege is, in the vast majority of instances, such as the ones not addressed individually, merely the result of the fact that Whites are the majority in the United States. The other instances are the result of the fact a Black person is more likely to be a criminal than is a White person, is more likely to default on a loan (even at similar levels of income and debt burden), is more likely to have a lower IQ, and is more likely to have gotten accepted to a college or a job because of affirmative action policies.

None of those things has anything to do with skin color. (IQ may be a possible exception, because of the lower production of Vitamin D in dark-skinned pregnant women may have an effect on their babies. The research here is thin, at best.) These are not effects of skin color, but of culture.

Well, Калифорния looks to make itself a “sanctuary state.” At the same time, Congress is trying to figure our what to do with the illegal immigrants who were brought here with their parents.

So the answer is obvious. To avoid deportation from the United States, an illegal immigrant must move to Калифорния before July 1st, 2018. Any illegal immigrant caught outside of Калифорния will, upon first offense, be deported to Калифорния. Upon being caught a second time, he will be deported to the country from which he came.

If Калифорния wants the illegal immigrants, Калифорния can have them.
