Howdy all!  I had some time to kill early yesterday, so I got on the book of face and played me some good ole Texas Holdem.  A fellow got on there with an icon of 2 guys dressed in full military gear facing each other in what looked like a helicopter. He said he was one of the guys.  So I thanked him for his service and the honor to play him.  The rest of the table followed suit.  It was cool.  And just before writing, I heard the sounds of spring peril on my back porch: a baby owl that fell to the ground from its nest.  You know, they aren’t small even as babies!  Got some pics; maybe I’ll post them if I figure out this dag-bern contraption!

Any hoo,..

But Lord, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strong arm each day and our salvation in times of trouble. ~ Isaiah 33:2

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Today, We The People celebrate the memory of heroes to us all; those who fell bravely, and those who serve ready to fall if necessary.  They do this out of love of country, duty, honor, respect, and responsibility.  True, America claims the beginning of the summer season today, and vendors across the nation have big sales on everything.  But, as we watch the parades in air conditioned homes, or barbeque on our porch by the pool, brave men and women eat food prepackaged years ago.  They get comfort in a hole they have to dig themselves.  They lay down to sleep on rocky ground, with their rifles and sidearms ready to use.  Jefferson said the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.  But we are not all being vigilant.  They are.  They are vigilant for us, for our safety, for our protection, for our republic.  And don’t think for one minute that they don’t miss the soft pillows, or warm burgers, or fresh watermelon and ice cream.  Yet, we will not hear their complaints.  They won’t let us hear them.  That is part of their price for freedom.  So We the People do offer up in prayer the verse from Isaiah 33:2.  Be merciful to our heroes Lord.  Be their strong arm each day and their salvation in times of trouble. 

They offer their lives for us.  The least we can do is offer our prayers for them.  Maybe a card game or two as well.

Take care, God bless,

AND STAND WITH ISRAEL!!!

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?
