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.
WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America
Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.
Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”
“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”
O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.
“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”
It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.
Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’
Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”
She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
