An unexpected result for some census takers: the wrath of irate Americans

25 06 2010

People are really pissed at the government right now and I know that most of us out there would not do these things to the census takers. What’s not being reported in this WAPO article, is how did the census takers act toward the people they were trying to get the information from? What were they told to do when someone resisted taking the census? During their training, how far outside the law were they told to go? Folks, government is not listening to us, “We The People”, right now. They are doing what ever they want to us. No, not “for us”, “to us”, so who’s to say that these census takers were told, “not to take “no” for and answer?” We may never know.

From The Washington Post:

This is the scary season for the nation’s census takers.
Since they began making follow-up house calls in early May, census takers have encountered vitriol, menace and flashes of violence. They have been shot at with pellet guns and hit by baseball bats. They have been confronted with pickaxes, crossbows and hammers. They’ve had lawn mowers pushed menacingly toward them and patio tables thrown their way. They have been nibbled by ducks, bitten by pit bulls and chased by packs of snarling dogs.
Some days, being cursed at seems part of the job description.
So far, the Census Bureau has tallied 379 incidents involving assaults or threats on the nation’s 635,000 census workers, more than double the 181 recorded during the 2000 census. Weapons were used or threatened in a third of the cases.
Now, with just three weeks to go in the door-knocking phase of the count, the number of census takers has dwindled, and the remaining households are the toughest.
While most homeowners have received census takers graciously, some say they have been surprised at the degree of anger exhibited by Americans who consider them the embodiment of intrusive government.
“I came across loads of hostility,” said Douglas McDonald, who summoned police in Deltona, Fla., after a tug-of-war with an irate homeowner over a census form. The homeowner threw his ripped half in the toilet.
McDonald, 70, a District native who retired from the Labor Department after 30 years as an investigator, said he wasn’t prepared for the level of anti-government fervor he encountered.
“There’s so much anger and bitterness, with people losing their homes and their jobs,” said McDonald, who eventually quit. “They’re not too fond of the government. They don’t want to talk to you.”

The census is Constitutional, but like everything else in our Republic, it has been morphed and distorted to the point that no one could possibly recognize it. The original intent was just to find out how many people were in each state so that the government knew how many House Representatives your state was allowed to have. Because back in the day, “We the People” elected our state and federal representatives, then our representatives elected our federal senators and our President. That was it people. Easy Peasy.

For Father’s Day

20 06 2010

Sent to us by our daughter Michelle

Daddy’s Poem

Her hair was up in a pony tail, her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy’s Day at school, and she couldn’t wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand, if she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid; she knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates of why he wasn’t there today.

But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again, she tried to keep her daughter home.
But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees, a dad who never calls.

There were daddies along the wall in back, for everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently, anxious in their seatsOne by one the teacher called a student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,as seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching, a man who wasn’t there.
Where’s her daddy at?’ She heard a boy call out.
‘She probably doesn’t have one,’ another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say,
‘Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day.’
The words did not offend her, as she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on.
And with hands behind her back, slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique.

‘My Daddy couldn’t be here, because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day.
And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy, and how much he loves me so.
He loved to tell me stories, he taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses and taught me to fly a kite.
We used to share fudge sundaes and ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him, I’m not standing here alone.

‘Cause my daddy’s always with me, even though we are apart
I know because he told me, he’ll forever be in my heart’.
And with that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress.

And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years.
For she stood up for the love of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her, doing what was right.
And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd, she finished with a voice so soft, but its message was clear and loud.

‘I love my daddy very much, he’s my shining star.
And if he could, he’d be here, but heaven’s just too far.
You see he is a Marine and died just this past year, when a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught Americans to fear.
But sometimes when I close my eyes, it’s like he never went away.’
And then she closed her eyes and saw him there that day.

And to her mothers amazement, she witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children, all starting to close their eyes.
Who knows what they saw before them, who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him at her side.

‘I know you’re with me Daddy, ‘to the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers, of those once filled with doubt.
Not one in that room could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.

And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, by the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, that heaven is never too far.

The Arizona Immigration Law is absolutelly Legal

18 06 2010

I am so tired of the Central Government abusing the constitution. I love the Republic that our founders gave us, unfortunately I cannot see much of the Republic left.

Article I s.8 only gives the central government the right to create uniform rules of naturalization, meaning rules of becoming a citizen. This was added because under the articles of confederation every state had their own rules of becoming a citizen and all had to respect citizenship from all states.

Oh, the supremacy clause only applies to laws made pursuant to the Constitution. This means if the Federal Govt. makes a law that is not in line with the powers directly given to them in the Constitution by the states it is unlawful.

The Constitution does not live or breathe, it is carved in stone and we must go back to the original intent of those who debated and created it.

The Constitution is the solution! The parties are the problem…

10,000′ throng to stop Ground Zero mosque

10 06 2010

This is a really indepth article and one that no one, and I mean no one, reported. Not even Fox News. That is scary folks. Please read the entire article and pass it on.
From World Net Daily:

As many as 10,000 protesters from across the country – including family members who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001 – took to the streets in New York City Sunday to fight construction of a 13-story Islamic mosque to be built just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah.

Robert Spencer who helped set this up had this to say:

Spencer said despite the crowd’s size and the presence of media outlets from around the world, the U.S. mainstream media failed to show.”ABC? NBC? CBS? CNN? Even FOX?” he wrote. “AWOL.”

And where did they get the money to buy this plot of land that used to be a Burlington Coat Factory?

The building was purchased last July by real-estate company Soho Properties, a business run by Muslims. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Kuwait-born founder of ASMA, was an investor in that transaction. Pajamas Media reporter Alyssa Lappen noted that Rauf’s father was Mohammed Abdul Rauf (1917-2004), an Egyptian contemporary of Hassan al-Banna, founder of Muslim Brotherhood – parent organization of al-Qaida, Hamas and other front-line terror groups.

My Interview on Patriots Chronicle TV

1 06 2010

On Thursday May 26th 2010 I was interviewed by Eric Olsen, founder of Montana Shrugged on his TV show Patriots Chronicle. It was a wonderful experience and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to share my novel; Opening a Registered Nurse’s Eyes, with his audience. His daughter put the interview up on U-tube and here are the links.

Flag Vandalism Mars Memorial Day in Several States

1 06 2010

Screw the local police, I’m calling on “we the people” to find out who did this. My husband wants to know why the FBI is not looking into this. Since it happened across state lines they have jurisdiction. But they are probably too busy going after militia’s and any law enforcement that are pulling over Illegal Aliens in Arizona.

From Fox News::

From Oregon to Minnesota to Ohio, vandals trampled on Old Glory over the Memorial Day weekend. In one Ohio town alone, approximately 25 American flags were found set ablaze on Monday.

I will be keeping an eye on this as I know it will be an evolving story. At least I hope it will be. But you can never tell what the Lame Stream Media thinks is important.
