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: email@example.com 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.
GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic BagRepublican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.
The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.
UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.
Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.
Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…
…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.
Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500
A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.
Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.
FOX News reported:
A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.
Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.
“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”
Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.
On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”
The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
