Giving Up Is Good

Tzipi Livni has learned something from the leftist cowards. Retreating and giving up is the only mantra that they know.

Tzipi Livni, who hopes to be appointed Israel's prime minister-designate, said Monday Israel must give up considerable territory in exchange for peace with the Palestinians, drawing a clear distinction with her rival, Benjamin Netanyahu.

She told a convention of American Jewish leaders, "we need to give up half of the Land of Israel," using a term that refers to biblical borders that include today's Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, repeating her well-known view that pulling out of Palestinian areas would be for the good of Israel, to maintain it as a Jewish state.
Yes, because last time, it worked so well. How many conflicts have occurred since retreating from lands? I think we are getting close to needing two hands to count on. Over the last 5 years it is 2: Lebanon and Gaza. Yeah, that is a much better peaceful situation now.

So, based on who voted for whom in the Israeli elections, and who voted for whom in the US, my guess will be that Kadima will win the government and thus concede lands, Syria will attack Israel when the pull from Golan, Hamas and the PA will continue their assault, and Iran will build their bomb and use it against Israel (with the help of USSR).

Keep your fingers crossed.

The United States of Prison

Let's begin with a story. Back in the early days, Germany's administration created policies and laws to create "camps" where refugees and migrants could be placed during times of crisis. As we all know now, what happened to the people in those camps.

And before you start thinking that something like that can't happen again, do think again.
Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations.

The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany.

The bill also appears to expand the president's emergency power, much as the executive order ...that, ..., gave the president the authority to declare an emergency and take over the direction of all federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments without even consulting Congress.
But, never fear, its not like something like this could ever happen in America even if someone just happen to think of it.
President Bush recently signed a little-reported National Security and Homeland Security Directive granting extraordinary powers to the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight.

Houston-based KBR was awarded an initial $385 million contract in January 2006 for one year, with four one-year options extended into 2007. KBR held a previous emergency detention contract with ICE from 2000 to 2005.

ICE spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback told Corsi the primary intent of the contract was to build temporary detention facilities that could be used in the event of a mass migration crisis.
So, for those of the conspiracy bent... you better start stocking that bomb shelter. For those who believe in Bible prophecy... you better get your soul right as it would seem that the clock is ticking.

What is the real purpose of having emergency shelters built over the last 8 years? If you thought that this was just a fund created for the "just in case" measure, then why keep paying them to build them each and every year? I can see no real reason to build these camps. There is no reason for these camps in case of natural disasters. For one, you never know where a natural disaster will occur or when it will occur. Why build 6 camps across the nation for a disaster in Florida, or California, or Alaska? The only point is to "HOLD" people that are placed there.

Think of it. Recall all of the time, hassle and cost of trying to transport only a small part of the population of New Orleans. Can you see FEMA moving people all over the US from a disaster in Texas?

Meanwhile, Rep Hastings is not what one would call, STABLE....

"If Sarah Palin isn't enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention," Hastings said, as reported by ABC News. "Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through."

H.R. 645, which seeks to allocate $360 million for developing the emergency centers, has been referred to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and to the Committee on Armed Services.

Spit-On-You Very Much!!!

So, since these people were elected to run our government, it is in OUR best interest that they screw us over and over? Isn't it bad enough that they are forcing expansive excess taxation upon our grandchildren in order to pay for these bloated buyout and pork-laden spending bills?

So far, we are up to what now, 3 Trillion Dollars in buyout money and pork barrel spending?

But, if that wasn't bad enough, now the Congress has voted themselves a pay raise. And not in the way you think. They voted them a raise of $93,000 increase in their PETTY CASH. So, watch the video to find out how much they will NOW get in plain petty cash that does not have to be reported. And this is far and above their salary levels.

Yep, you heard that right. They will now be getting a $93,000 increase over their $1.3 million that they already get in petty cash!
