Gosh, Ed! Don't you think you are worthy of friends? OK. Well, I enjoy your responses and you also responded to my blog. Unless someone is your "friend," you cannot send that person a message. So, when I get ready to send a message to all who responded to my blog, they must first be a "friend." Nevertheless, I also choose my friends based upon what they write. So, it is a blend of the two thoughts. Friends are like fine wine; GOOD friends are like expensive Scotch!
Hi Ed, Nice Bike !! I been on bike's ever since I got back from 'Nam and bought my first one in '72, but had to sell my huge GoldWing a few years back because of my arthritic knees which are now "bionic" Steel and plastic, but screwed up by the Milwaukee VA ! Grrrrr! I would love to go carving on THEIR knees...ha!
Everytime I hear the place DaNANG, I always think, 'Marine,' so you must be one... lol. Welcome Home, fellow Vet! Thanks for allowing me to be one of your friends. I was one of those crazy guys who flew as 'door gunner' in Hueys every day, in RVN. Nothing, IMHO, can replace flying every day in a Huey-- except riding a Motorcycle ! --- Tommy Schuckman email: firstname.lastname@example.org Iron Mtn., MI... we got hungry bears U.P. here !!
Hi Ed... Larry is a troll. It was not my intention to use the term 'level' when speaking of the legal paths available to achieve Citizenship in the US of A. Rather, I meant to say that there are three 'methods' by which on may become a citizen: 1) Natural Born... the natural birth right to be a US Citizen by virtue of being born to PARENTS both of whom are US Citizens. 2) Native born... by right of BIRTH, while in the US legally and under the jurisdiction of the US. 3) Naturalized... by legally immigrating to the US and completing the necessary qualifications, tests, and 'Oath of Citizenship' affirming ones allegiance to US and RENOUNCING all other allegiances to any state or foreign potentate.
A child born to parents, either or both of whom are not citizens... but are legally present, are under the full jurisdiction of the US. These children gain citizenship by being 'Native Born' on US soil. Mark Rubio is a native born US Citizen, so is Jindal.
However, the point is mute... as no one with the power or statutory authority will act to enforce the Constitution or our laws regarding US Citizenship as originally intended. Our Constitution and the laws of the land have been corrupted by corrupt men... whose purpose, is not to enforce the law but to corrupt law; in order, to enforce their will upon the people. Remember governments rule by force of law... those who enforce the law have been granted the right by the people too use the force of law. It then becomes the duty and obligation of the people too oversea the government; too, restrain the corrupt from corrupting the law of the land.
OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People
Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.
Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”
“I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”
Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”
While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.
King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
