MY MAN; SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!

April 2, 2008

SHERIFF JOE

     I am a really big fan of Sheriff Joe.  I have been following him for a number of years, he is often featured on our news cast here in California. 

     Don’t really know where this came from except that I received it via email, many times forwarded.

SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!
Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.

The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior.

They give great classes for anyone who’d like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand. He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 – $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later.

Yup, he was reelected last year with 83% of the vote. Now he’s in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn’t doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He’s kind of a “Git-R Dun” kind of Sheriff.
Update on Joe Arpaio
TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO, HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF, AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS IS ONE OF
THE REASONS WHY:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio(InArizona) who created the “Tent City Jail”:

He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but “G” movies.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

Then He Started:

Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn’t Get Sued For
Discrimination.

He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court Order that Required Cable TV For Jails. So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.

When asked why the weather channel, He Replied, “So They Will Know How Hot It’s Gonna Be While They Are Working ON My Chain Gangs.”

He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.

When the inmates complained, he told them, “This Isn’t The
Ritz/Carlton. …If You Don’t Like It, Don’t Come Back.”

He bought Newt Gingrich’s lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.

When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

More On The Arizona Sheriff:

With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:

About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire- Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on theirbunk bedsor chatted in the tents, which reached 138 Degrees Inside The Week Before.

Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.

“It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,” Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. “It’s Inhumane.”

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic.

He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: “It’s 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear, But They Didn’t Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your Damned Mouths!”

Way To Go, Sheriff!

Maybe if all prisons were like this one, there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders.

Criminals should be punished for their crimes — not live in luxury until it’s time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can’t afford to have for themselves.

If you agree, pass this on. If not, just delete it.

Sheriff Joe was just reelected Sheriff in Maricopa County , Arizona

     If the corrections faculty’s across the country were more like this I feel that we would experience a decrease in crime.  Several family members both close and kin to close members have been incarcerated.  Sometimes in a revolving door style and others long term.  I feel that none of them received the type of confinement that was fitting for their offences.  They received no rehabilitation or lasting impressions to prevent recurrences.  I am sorry but I thought incarceration was punishment for offence and attempt at rehabilitation.

     In travels through Arizona we have seen these chain-gangs at work along side the High-ways.  There they were, both male and female in separate groups, in their pink jumps-suites under the watchful eyes of mounted, armed guards.

Jump on the band wagon and yell at me if you like.  But you won’t change my mind.

nuff preaching for now back to the

old west, next time.

Another Email I Agree With

April 2, 2008

 HERE’S A NEW E-MAIL I RECIEVED

     Here’s another email that will piss off Rick -I will make sure to use the spell checker, but won’t guarantee the proper sentence structure.

      Here’s an email I received that claimed to be from Pat Buchannan. I can’t verify this, it was forwarded several times, but still like the message:

     Now let me make sure you understand, I am no fan of Pat Buchanan’s by any stretch of the imagination.  His views on religion, same sex marriages and many other subjects are in strong disagreement with my aged, narrow mind, I guess.  But in this particular article I find much to think about, and call it to your attention.

Subject: From Pat Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.

Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.

Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

Barack talks about new “ladders of opportunity” for blacks.

Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for “deserving” white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

       If this sounds like white hate mongering I’m sorry, but the facts do speak for their-self’s.

      If you have read any of my earlier posts that deal with myself and my life you know that for 42 years I worked in industry alongside and with a mixed work force comprised of a few whites, many Black and a equal number of Hispanic.  And have experienced both the reverse discrimination and witnessed the affirmative actions that favored the minorities over whites.  In either case it was not uncommon to be engaged in conversation with someone and to have some one else walk up and to be suddenly ignored as if I did not exist.  And when I received any recognition, to have resentment shown in subtle ways.

     I was passed over for promotion to foreman on several occasions and saw demotions caused by the so called affirmative action programs.  After all my years of service, I saw my children’s applications for work turned away while minority of-springs were hired.  Believe me it hurt and angered me.  when questioned the personnel Dept. just shrugged and said our hands are tied.  So you can sense my feelings here.

     And as for the arrests and trials of blacks.  I was working back when O. J. Simpson was on trial for murder.  You could not find one       of my co-workers of color who thought is was guilty.  It is almost impossible to believe some of the cockamamie theory’s that were advanced.  the most prevalent was drug dealers had followed them home and killed the pair.

     As you can see I have strong feelings on the subject and who ever wrote the E-mail I am in agreement with the text.  and enough said.

Stay tuned the next post will probably ruffel a few more feathers.

Hope I didn’t piss any of you of too much to come back.

HERE’S AN E-MAIL I AGREE WITH

February 29, 2008

     I receive a lot of E-mail from my wife’s cousin’s husband, and here is one that Hillary needs to read.  Now if this guy would just write one like it for Obama, I would be happy.

     Aspen Times columnist Gary Hubbell wrote an excellent article, which is copied below so I can properly rant.

In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man
Gary Hubbell February 9, 2008

There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates – a woman and an African-American – while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone – just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

The victimhood syndrome buzzwords – “disenfranchised,” “marginalized and “voiceless” – don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina – he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.”

He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who” don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

Interesting response from the editors at the Aspen Times Weekly on the above article. Seems a (BIG) flurry of emails, comments, phone calls and letters were sent in response and the editors chose to put a few of the diverse opinions on a page apty titled Angry White Man letters. Here’s the enticing intro:

Editor’s note: In the Feb. 10 edition of the Aspen Times Weekly, columnist Gary Hubbell, our own Redneck Tree-Hugger, wrote an opinion titled “In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man” that has since become something of a phenomenon.Hubbell’s piece has made the rounds on the Internet, chiefly among conservative white males, and eventually landed on radio shows hosted by Neal Boortz, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Needless to say, the column also generated a lot of activity at the newspaper: More than 1 million hits on our website, some 800 e-comments on the column, hundreds of phone calls to the newspaper’s beleaguered front office, and hundreds of letters to the editor.The vast majority of these communications were favorable, but some thought Hubbell’s column was bitter, bigoted and/or misogynistic. Below is a representative, if small, sample from the hundreds of letters.

Direct Link to Gray Hubbell’s column: www.aspentimes.com/hubbell

     If you go to the above site you will get the whole page on the left – you need to click on editorials or GO HERE to read his column.  He is developing a following all over the county – people like me are forwarding it around.  The only  problem that most say is, they are upset because of the “White Man” connotation.  They are saying Native Americans, African Americans and Women should have been included in the article.

      My reply to this article is it sure hits home for me and spells my feelings exactly.  I have sympathy for the poor and under paid, but since when did it become the average working  mans responsibility to support them?  Myself and others have fought, worked and struggled to raise, support, clothe, house, feed and provide medical coverage for our familys all of our working lives.  Now the Speaker of the House, Old Nancy Bit**, wants to further tap into our Social Security and add a tax onto our retirement accounts, 401k’s and such to “equal out the lives of the poor and illegal”?!? Does she know what Illegal means?  These people want to spend american tax dollars like it is theirs.  That is not her money it is our’s.  When is this crap going to stop?  Please go back a chapter or two and watch the video “Gumball Immigration” (need to fix link).  My shoulders are stooped from serving in our military and working for 45 years, I cannot shoulder this burden we are facing..

OK enough of a rant.  I’ll sit back and wait for the flack to fall.

The Right To Leave A ramble

December 4, 2007

      You know I don’t really consider my self deeply prejudiced, but some things cause me to wonder.  Recently the government released a warning about possible terrorist attacks at malls during the holiday season.  Where upon the Los Angeles Police dept announced plans to monitor some of the Muslim Tempels in the area.  A huge outcry from the Muslim community caused them to back down.

     Add this to the recent immigration marches by illegal immigrants demanding rights they do not have kinda makes me wonder about the future of our country.  The values we formed our society upon is under attract from people who came here for the freedom and and quality of life we have because they want to change it to conform to their beliefs.  The following is a E-mail I received recently, and sums up my feelings on this issue.

           From an email received on 12/2/07 comes this text:

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote: ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

[Too bad he can’t run for President here,

oh hell I forgot he is a ainti-gunner,

let him stay where he is!]

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

As far as I am concerned all the various groups who do not want to live as Americans and accept our way of life can pack their bags and get — and take the ACLU with them.  Also the weak-kneed politicians who will not defend our values and laws can join them.

gonna quit before I get in too deep,

but do not apologize for my feelings!

Great video – Press One For English

July 17, 2007

     Here is a neat site my wife forarded to me from one of her friends.  It is a cool music vedio sang by a gal that can really sing.  If you ever try to call somewhere and get that damn push one for English it hits the nail on the head. 

     There are other clips included on the site, that I feel are profane, and not worth watching , especially the Man from boston.  so if you chose to watch him know I do not endorse him.

Press One For English is performed by Ron and Kay Rivoli of the Rivoli Revue.

     Lord this is sore point with me I have lived in the area where we are located for 34 years.  Obver half the flyers and junk mail we recieve is in spanish.  People are al the time coming to my door and addressing me in spanish, pisses me off. 

      Had to stiffel my laughter a while back, heard my wife answer the phone; Heard her say ” There ain’t no Juan here, never has been no  Juan here, will never be no Juanhere’ and slammed down the reciever.  Kept my mouth shut in self preservation.

      this is another subject that I could rant over with no end.  So will rambel on out of here for now.

Oh Yes Enjoy

FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE

June 27, 2007

          As you will be well aware if you have read some of my previous posts, I am a gun owner and shooter, as are all of my children and grandchildren.  I come from a long line of patroits who have bore and used firearms in the defense of our country.  None of us were ever criminals or have ever used a fire arm to cause harm to others.  but we all reserved the right to posess and use if  necessary a firearm to defend our families or ourselves if necessary.  As a Fathers Day gift my oldest son has pledged to arange a shooting date for the two of us as soon as  possible  It is an outting I am looking forward to.  I recieve E-mail from family and freinds and other interested parties pertaining to the use of firearms. and felt that a few of them might be of interest to some of you.  Possibly, a few of you may disagree and think we are wild eyed terriorests.  If so I only pity you – I would give a pretty penny (I’ll even shine it with brasso) to have a shot at some of those who assisted in the 9-11 attacts.  I would demostrate to them what good gun control is!

     The following are a few of the E-mails I have recieved and wish to pass on.      

     I came across this email with a humorous yet truthful slant on firearms and wanted to share:

FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE

a. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
b. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
c. Smith & Wesson: The original point and click interface.
d. Gun control is not about guns; it’s about control.
e. If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?
f. If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.
g. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
h. If you don’t know your rights you don’t have any.
i. Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

Now this amusing list has been making it’s way around the net so I don’t know the original source, but a quick search of “Firearms Refresher Course” via google will point you to a ton of blogs, articles and websites referencing the FRC.  GeeksWithGuns has an entry that includes 17 additional amusing points. I’ll mention here that I’m not a regular visitor of this particular website so I am only referencing them for their additional 17 points – Amusing and true takes on the 2nd ammendment – the right to bear arms! Here they continue:

j. The United States Constitution ? 1791. All Rights Reserved.
k. What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand ?
l. The Second Amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.
m. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
n. Guns only have two enemies: Rust and Politicians.
o. Know guns, know peace and safety. No guns, no peace nor safety.
p. You don’t shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
q. 911 – government sponsored Dial a Prayer.
r. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
s. Criminals love gun control – it makes their jobs safer.
t. If Guns cause Crime, then Matches cause Arson.
u. Only a government that is afraid of it’s citizens tries to control them.
v. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
w. Enforce the “gun control laws” we have, don’t make more.
x. When you remove the people’s right to bear arms, you create slaves.
y. The American Revolution would never have happened with Gun Control.
z. “…a government by the people, for the people…”

Read more here: http://www.geekswithguns.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=187

     These are a few of the things that most of us gun owners feel.  Also I would like to point out that the U. S . news media and many of our politicians would have you believe that the members of the NRA (National Rifle Association) are nuts and fruit cakes.  The real reason they hate us is that we stand united in blocking their  own agendas.   The Association is comprised of every segment of the American population from top to the bottom.  The grass roots is so broad that you can hardly walk across the lawn with out steping on a bunch of us.  In every city across the country, like New York City and Washington D.C. where severe gun control is in existence, thousands of Americans have been denied the right granted them by the US consitution to defend themselves from aggressors.  In states like Arazonia, Where the population has the right to bear arms, the crime rate lags behind other states.  A thug is afraid to attempt an event on a person he thinks may be able to defend theirself.  I had a friend in Australia who visited me one year and he was so envious of my right to have handguns he could hardly stand it.  Their government took all their guns away, then one idiot went on a rampage with a sword and they outlawed them also.  Britian’s crime rate is out of control because you are severly restricted on the ability to defend yourself in any matter (you open yourself to prosecution or lawsuit).  Makes sense don’t it?

    Well hell I’m either preaching to the congregation or people with wax in their ears –  Either way it is a waste of time.  So Adios!

WWII, Tokyo Rose and Troop Demoralization

June 26, 2007

     If you have ever watched many of the old World War Two movies  about the war with Japan in the Pacific you will be familiar with Tokoy Rose.  She is usually potrayed as a beautiful Ashian woman sitting before a mike with Japanesse Officers standing behind her.  Her  job was to demoralise our troop fighting the Japaneese.  To retain their interest she played popular music from America, which the troops could not pick up from home stations.  This is a little diffrent from my other postings as it contains mostly subjct matter gleaned through E-mail and other  internet sourceses.

I do not know the exact origin of the opinions below   I recevied them via email with many forwards prior to my receiving it.  Tokyo Rose is an interesting story stemming from the World War Two.   According to wikipedia:

“Tokyo Rose (alternate spelling Tokio Rose) was a generic name given by Allied forces in the South Pacific during World War II to any of approximately twenty English-speaking female broadcasters of Japanese propaganda.”

     According to EarthStation1,  one woman was single out and tried as Tokyo Rose  – Iva Ikuko Toguri.   Ask Yahoo also confirms this in their post Who was Tokyo Rose?.  You can read more about the Tokyo Rose legend at any of the links noted above,  or google Tokyo Rose for an overwhelming amount of data to sift through.

      Now on to the interesting opinions I received via email and find myself agreeing with wholeheartedly:

Subject: Tokyo Rose

 There are a few parallels here.

 The other night we watched a movie called, “Flags of our Fathers.”  During the movie, I pointed out the radio broadcast of “Tokyo Rose.”

 She had the best music on her station. During World War II; the Japanese developed a way to demoralize the American forces.  Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work.

 They gave the script to their famous broadcaster “Tokyo Rose” and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different  ways.

 The Japanese hoped it would have a negative impact on American GI’s morale.

 What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

 1. Your President is lying to you.

 2. This war is illegal.

  3. You cannot win the war.

 Does this sound familiar today?

      It is because we are being bombarded by Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, Tokyo Murtha, etc. ,and they have picked up  the same message and are broadcasting it on Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops.

      The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before  they demoralize them. Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too.

Now I am a inactive United States Marine (for many years as you all know).  And I am truthfully disapointed with the way this current war is being handled and I also am at lost as how to bring it to a successfull conclusion.  But I at no time am ready to abandon my support of our fighting men & women in this troubled shit hole of the world.  And it sickens me to see that smug Nancy P. and fat assed, bloated, woman drowning Teddy Kennedy,  (maybe some of you are not old enough to remember the Chappaquiddick incident, and how the Kennedy money let a manslaughterer walk free) , and their Ilk spouting their two faced crap in the name of representing me, when I so strongly disagree with their assement.  Damn this is enough to make my blood pressure medication inefective, so I’ll stop this rant here.

Well I Guess I’m Disturbed

April 13, 2007

     No I know for sure I am disturbed.  I received a E-mail forwarded on my my oldest son yesterday.  It was a series of color photos taken of a large group of students at  a local high school, located in Montelbello, Ca..  In the pictures they were shown  attaching a Mexican flag to the pole on the front lawn of the school.  What is is even more disturbing is they then attached the American Flag upside-down below it and raised them to the top of the pole in front of a large cheering mob.

     Now what bothers me are these few thoughts.  Where were the adult teachers and administrators while this was going on?  Do they not know there are laws governing this type of action?  On American soil no flag is allowed to fly superior to the American Flag.  The American Flag does not fly upside-down in any instance other sever distress.  This was clearly not a act of freedom of speech but a act of civil disobedience and contempt.  Are the teachers so frightened of their students that they will allow them to act in such a manner?  Or did they agree with their feelings? 

     I bothers me greatly that our country has allowed the act of illegal immigration to get so far out of hand that we now can seemly not have any control over it.  How can our President stand on a platform with a leader of another nation and listen to them lambaste him and our country about the issue and demand, DEMAND, we grant their citizens entry and citizenship for illegal behavor. 

     I will not rehash the things I find distastefull about this whole illigal immigrant mess again, you can go back and read the earlier soap box tirades, I have not changed my mind any at all. (more…)

The Down Fall of a neighborhood

October 9, 2006

     We moved into this neighborhood 34 years ago our children were young and there were other children their age to associate with.  We had a few young punks that caused some trouble but I quickly make it clear I was not one to accept their crap and they left us alone.  One 18 year old threw my 9 year old in a mud puddle, and I met him in the street after dark and explained to him he was now a adult and my son was the minor and he would have to deal with me the next time.  He tried to recruit a few of the adults to deal with me which they refused and advised him to stand down we had no more trouble.  I have gone into the dark street to settle down loud music with a large group of teenagers.  No more                                about five years ago all my children long gone there was a gang initiation in the back ally the police responded and arrested 13 boys.  To enter the gang the applicant had to take a beating from the whole gang three boys were being beaten.  One of the officers told my wife they knew some of the gang members packed, meaning they carried guns.  This is the state the area has been reduced to.

      Seven years ago we had a gang member living next door, they would party all night on the street with the car doors wide open and that rap crap blaring.     The police were called repeatedly, one night we called three times I need to go to work at 4:30 AM the next day.  Finally I asked to speak to the police officer who responded.  By the time the responded the group had moved inside and shut the doors, the officer told me there was nothing they could do with them quite.  He said he had been out  twice already that night.  There were two officers and they took a look at the cars on the street.  Two tickets werewritten one for not plate on the front of the car and one for expired tags.  Chicken shit violations I know but the best they could do.  The two units left, immediately they thugs came out of the house and grabbed the tickets then they proceeded to start to brat on my pickup truck.  I stepped out side to the porch they then charged the fence separating the property’s.  One yelled remember us old man.  The one who lived there screamed your dead asshole.  I live on a corner lot and across the street and just up from the intersection the police had just made a U turn and was starting to park he hit his spot and loud speaker and told all to stand still.  The second unit came back down the street from the other direction.  The punks ran into the house and slammed the door.  I stepped back into my house to place the loaded shotgun I had stood on the porch when I went out, and remove the cocked .45 auto I had in the back of my waistband.  I then stepped back out side to await the police and respond as they wished.  I told me to wait inside   while they handled the situation.  the short story is it took 8 squad cars ten officers to extract them from the house with the use of three pepper sprays to the face.  The two were placed under arrest for Therriorst threats which is a felony.  Never threaten to kill or shoot some one in heated anger.  The officer had me sign a complaint and asked me if I had a gun to which I replied not on me but in the house.  He told me these are known gang member from Huntington Park with strong gang ties.  He said I don’t know how long we can hold them but sometimes they retaliate, do what you have to and call us.  This was on a Saturday morning they were held in jail until Wednesday they were released.  When I came home from work that day he was in the yard he stood and tried to stare me down I simply looked at and smiled.  I entered the house and removed the guns from the safe and put them handy.  The city wrote letters to the land lord about harboring gang members and the eventually were evicted.  That was when we had a effective police force.  Now the city is overwhelmed with this element.  (more…)
