The lady standing at the rear of the pick-up truck is a Trail Angel who picked me up and drove me to my car when I got turned around (never lost, just confused) while hiking in Grayson Highlands State Park.
Only 17.9 of the 854 miles of fencing called for in the Secure Fence Act have been completed as of August 10, 2007.
The law stipulates a double layer fence but the Administration (that's you, sir) has built just one-layer fencing.
Of the total 854 miles mandated by the Secure Fence Act, the law stipulates that 392 miles be completed from California to Arizona by May 31, 2008 and an
additional 30 miles be completed near Laredo, Texas, by December 31, 2008.
President Bush, Where Is The Fence?
Senators Spector, Cornyn, McCain, Warner, Kyl, Hutchison, Alexander, Graham, Martinez, McConnell, Burr, Brownback, and Lott, Where Is The Fence?
France's Universal Health Care killed Princess Diana. Princess Diana couldn't be placed in the ambulance and taken to the nearest hospital as they would have been able to do had the accident occurred in the USofA.
In the USofA, the jaws of life would have been used, if needed, to remove her from the car, she would have been placed on a stretcher and put in an ambulance and been taken to the nearest trauma hospital.
And she would be alive today.
France's Universal Health Care System is guilty of the death of Princess Diana. You heard it here first and of course none of the investigators will admit to it because it's so obvious even I could figure it out.
I've been in an auto accident in the USofA and I've been out of my car and into the ambulance within five to ten minutes and at the closest hospital emergency room within half an hour of the accident. In Princess Diana's case, we all sat watching our televisions while no one moved to remove Princess Diana from the car where she died of internal injuries. I imagine they were on the telephone trying to find a hospital with an empty emergency room. Or maybe a hospital with an MRI and working x-ray equipment.
Universal Health Care -- it'll be the death of you!

I invite you to read the Media Research Center's recently released Culture and Media Institute report "The Media Assault on the Second Amendment."
First topic: Something that really makes me sick to my stomach is reading on-line responses to various news articles posted by readers. It appears that everyone thinks he has the right to disparage and disrespect our President. The ridicule and the language used is contemptuous. Why do people think they have the right to call the President 4-letter words? Not only do they dishonor and insult the Office of the Presidency, they appear to be rude and insolent. No wonder other cultures look at ours and say "we don't want any."
Second topic: It appears that President Bush has not been forthright about his agenda. It appears that he is orchestrating the North American Union without the knowledge and approval of US Citizens. NAFTA, "the Highway," and now the SSP summit in Canada. It's going to be a Global One World Village destined to remove the rights and privileges in the Constitution and Bill of Rights from US Citizens. It's an insidious plan that will not just take us back to 1776, but back to the Dark Ages.
Third topic: Universal Health Care. As you know, if you've read my blog, I am totally against such a beast. Because it will be a beast to deal with. For argument's sake, let's say we have Universal Health Care -- some smaller County Hospitals will close and will become clinics without benefit of various medical labs, like the MRI, C-T scan, or the ability to do anything more than diagnose and write prescriptions. If the patient needs to be hospitalized, there may be a small unit with maybe half a dozen beds where the patient will wait until a bed becomes open in one of the larger hospitals in a nearby (hopefully) larger city. So you go have blood work done at the clinic after your stroke and you need an MRI and possibly an operation. But the MRI machine that was at your small County Hospital before Universal Health Care is no longer in use and there is no one trained to use it. So you're placed on a waiting list for your MRI at the "big" Hospital. The problem is, you're not the only one waiting for the MRI. The big Hospital serves 24 Counties and the waiting list is long. You've had a stroke. You need surgery but can't have surgery until the MRI is completed. You don't have time to wait months for your turn at the MRI. Your life is at stake!
What do you do? WELL, if you had lived in Canada before the USofA went "Universal Health Care," you would have driven across the border and gone to any US Hospital in just about any County or Town or City. The ER would have admitted you, taken any insurance information you had, gotten you into the MRI within a short time and you'd have gone directly into surgery, had the blood clot removed and whatever other medical needs you had and within 24 to 36 hours you'd be laying in your hospital room bed, thankful that at least the USofA had AVAILABLE Health Care. See, that's is the difference. You can have "Universal Health Care" where everyone has to wait in line, OR, you can have "Available Health Care" where you walk into a Hospital Emergency Room (or are admitted by your personal physician) and your medical needs are taken care of nearly immediately. But you cannot have both. Who you vote for and how you vote may determine your fate and the fate of every US Citizen. (Not to mention the millions of illegal aliens who currently use the USofA with impunity.)
But the proponents of "Universal Health Care" don't explain that part to you. And not only that, Congress will not be a subscriber to the same "Universal Health Care" plan that everyone else is forced to use. That's right. Not only will they not draw Social Security, they will still have access to the best "available health care." It's the privilege of the elite class. You know, people like Sen. H R Clinton and Sen. B H Obama. They talk it, but they won't walk it. Ever. They keep their money and force you to share yours. Think about it.

Slap Butt Day at a McMinnville, Oregon, Middle School turned ugly for two seventh-grade boys, according to Dennis Prager.
Our beloved country is flipping out. The effects of The Age of Stupidity ushered in during the ‘60s and ‘70s are omnipresent. It is highly doubtful that there is a living member of the World War II generation who could have imagined that seventh-graders would one day be brought in shackles into an American courtroom for playfully swatting a girl's buttocks. It is also true that there is no member of that generation who could ever have imagined something as low-life as a “slap butt day” in an American middle school. But that is another matter.
Progressives invest in failure, not in success, according to Thomas Sowell.
It is not just in Iraq that the political left has an investment in failure. Domestically as well as internationally, the left has long had a vested interest in poverty and social malaise.
Progress in general seems to hold little interest for people who call themselves “progressives." What arouses them are denunciations of social failures and accusations of wrong-doing.
Elvira Arellano, a convicted felon and illegal alien, thinks nothing is wrong with flouting American law, according to Debra Saunders.
Only the most overzealous activist would support the notion that national borders have no meaning or that a country should let foreigners break their laws, trade in fraudulent documents and violate deportation orders with impunity.
It's bad enough that so many non-citizens freely break this country's duly enacted laws. But when they feel that they can break our laws openly and without consequence, they have to go. Or all respect for the law will go.
Accountability in Government is the only way to credibility, according to Cal Thomas.
It is fine for Republicans to speak of tax cuts, which indisputably have contributed to record economic growth, but a parallel issue for Republicans in 2008 should be a focus on out-of-control spending. America's puritanical “waste not, want not” heritage might yet stir enough of us to oppose needless spending if tied to an appeal for more personal responsibility and accountability for one's life. Eliminating, or at least reducing, wasteful spending weakens the Democrats’ argument for tax increases. Even under Republican majority rule, including a Republican president, government has continued to grow. Only a break with that heretical Republicanism will restore credibility with voters who increasingly view the two parties as indistinguishable
Losing is winning when there are no consequences for bad judgment, according to Bill Murchison.
Hillary Clinton talks of a $1 billion federal fund to help families likely to find themselves sitting on the curb outside their former houses (or, much likelier, moving into apartments or rental houses).
Emergency relief -- food, shelter, clothes -- is one thing. Protection, as a matter of policy, from bad decisions (e.g., borrowing without the means to repay) penalizes good decisions. It says to citizens, don't bother to plan, to save, to reason things out, to act with discretion and judgment, because if you do blow it through carelessness or irrationality, along the government rescue wagon will come, bells jingling and dollars flying through the air.

If it's just one individual acquaintance, avoidance after confrontation (or without confrontation) is fairly easy. The gossip that flies from that individual will be ignored by true friends and used as fodder by someone trying to rankle me. But then, using that fodder proves that a heifer is a heifer and doesn't range far from her dung.
Dirty diaper litterers and litterers of other cast-offs, from beer containers to anything loose in the car will probably always be with us. Except in my County, if I get the person's Tag Number and turn it in, the owner of the Tag will receive a County Letter telling them they've been reported and if they're reported a second time, they'll be fined. Don't know how that program is working, but it's a good idea because it lets the person who sees the littering actually do something constructive to try to stop at least one person from littering. If that person even cares.
And maybe that's the bottom line. If you care about other people, you don't gossip. If you care for "Mother Earth" then you don't litter. If you think it doesn't matter what you do . . . you're wrong, but you're more likely to litter and to gossip.

- First would be stalkers. I've had two in my life. One person passed away earlier this month. That means one down, one to go.
- Second would be poseurs. Poseurs can be people who act as if you're their friend so long as you can do something for them or buy them something. They act as if the very earth revolves around them and their tales of woe and gossip. If they're not draining you emotionally, they're complaining about everyone they know. And Poseurs seem to know what everyone else "should" or "ought" do. They want to give directions to everyone else and won't look into the mirror to see what they've done with their lives. Poseurs favorite words are "I, me, my, and mine."
- Third would be people who have no financial plan worked out so that they can accomplish what they say the want to do. What appears to be a small financial problem is in reality a huge financial disaster. This is the type who asks a friend for financial assistance so that the water (or other utility) won't be cut off, with promises to repay from the next paycheck, and then promptly forgets to repay. These people act as if they don't expect the same bills to come due every month. And their financial situation is the fault of their rent and utilities and car insurance and upkeep and all their financial responsibilities but never their own lack of planning.
- Fourth would be people who throw used disposable diapers anywhere they please. There is nothing as disgusting as seeing or smelling a fouled disposable diaper that wasn't wrapped and placed in a trashcan. I've seen them everywhere a person can go. It's totally gross. And not much grosses me out, but dirty disposable diapers do.
- Fifth, I will never understand why people can drink a six-pack while driving around or sitting in some secluded spot and then toss their empty bottles or cans out the car window or leave them in that secluded spot. First of all, drinking and driving is a game of Russian Roulette. You may not end up dead the first time, but your chances of screwing up your life and the lives of those in your car increase exponentially every time you mix drinking and driving. In other words, it's a stupid action that normally sane people engage in. If you're afraid of the police finding an open container in your car, maybe it's because you know what you're doing is against the law and ethically wrong. If you must drink, do not drive after drinking. Find a buddy who is willing to stay sober (drink nothing with alcohol in it) and drive you home. AND take those bottles and cans to a recycling station and drop them off there.
- Sixth, litterers. People who toss a candy wrapper, an empty cigarette pack, cigarette butts, bottle tops, ring-tops, bags and wrappers from fast food establishments, those plastic bags from stores, and generally anything not bolted down. You go to an area that you think is pristine and what do you find? Litter! You climb up a mountain thinking that people who have climbed there will pack out what they packed in and what do you find? Litter! It makes me want to run down the middle of the street, pulling my hair out of my head, and screaming my lungs out. That is how much litterers upset me.
- Seventh, people who steal. I totally detest people who steal from others. The thief has no excuse. This is the USofA. Anyone can grow up to be President. It doesn't take much to be successful here. Stay in school. Study hard. Be honest. Work hard. Earn the money for what you want. I get really rankled when I read about some thief taking something that doesn't belong to him. Thieves are thoughtless, callous, selfish individuals.
- Eighth, people who use illicit drugs. What is with people that they actually want to put poison in their bodies to get some kind of chemical "high?" It's more stupid than drinking and driving. It's insane. Meth and cocaine and heroin and even marijuana create havoc with a person's body. A person screws up his body for a momentary "high?" That's just plain insane. You want a high? Climb a mountain, kayak whitewater, rappel down a mountain. There are thousands of things that a person can be involved in which will give him a sense of accomplishment and a "natural high" that's priceless.
I'll tell you what I learned about smoking marijuana. This is something you won't hear from people trying to convince you to 'just try it once.' When you smoke marijuana, it creates a chemical at the ends of your brain synapses. This chemical turns into a sticky resin-like substance. The more often you smoke, the faster the substance grows until it covers the synapse. Later, when you try to use your brain, the messages that normally pass from one set of synapses to another either can't get through the resin-like substance or bounce off the substance and connect to an unrelated synapse. This in effect makes the marijuana smoker "goofy" or "act like a 17 year old in heat" or may be a cause of adult attention disorders. The brain of a person who has used marijuana extensively looks very similar to a child with "shaken baby syndrome."
So those are a few of the things that rankle me. Do you have anything to add?

Two weeks ago, as I was starting my sixth month of duty in Iraq, I was forced to return to the USA for surgery for an injury I sustained prior to my deployment. With luck, I'll return to Iraq to finish my tour.
I left Baghdad, and a war that has every indication that we are winning, to return to a demoralized country much like the one I returned to in 1971 after my tour in Vietnam. Maybe it's because I'll turn 60 years old in just four months, but I'm tired.
I'm tired of spineless politicians, both Democrat and Republican, who lack the courage, fortitude and character to see these difficult tasks through.
I'm tired of the hypocrisy of politicians who want to rewrite history when the going gets tough.
I'm tired of the disingenuous clamor from those that claim they 'Support the Troops' by wanting them to 'Cut and Run' before victory is achieved.
I'm tired of a mainstream media that can only focus on car bombs and casualty reports because they are too afraid to leave the safety of their hotels to report on the courage and success our brave men and women are having on the battlefield.
I'm tired that so many Americans think you can rebuild a dictatorship into a democracy overnight.
I'm tired that so many ignore the bravery of the Iraqi people to go to the voting booth and freely elect a Constitution and soon a permanent Parliament.
I'm tired of the so called 'Elite Left' that prolongs this war by giving aid and comfort to our enemy, just as they did during the Vietnam War.
I'm tired of antiwar protesters showing up at the funerals of our fallen soldiers, a family whose loved ones gave their life in a just and noble cause, only to be cruelly tormented on the funeral day by cowardly protesters is beyond shameful.
I'm tired that my generation, the Baby Boom -- Vietnam generation, who have such a weak backbone that they can't stomach seeing the difficult tasks through to victory.
I'm tired that some are more concerned about the treatment of captives than they are the slaughter and beheading of our citizens and allies.
I'm tired that when we find mass graves it is seldom reported by the press, but mistreat a prisoner and it is front-page news.
Mostly, I'm tired that the people of this great nation didn't learn from history that there is no substitute for victory.

"How soon we forget history... Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington
"If a nation, in a state of civilization, expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be." - Thomas Jefferson
"All the perplexities, confusion and distresses in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, nor from want of honor or virtue, as much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation." - John Adams
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table…everywhere.
Then some of the birds turned mean: They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud: They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch anymore. I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be…quite, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
Now lets see…our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands.
Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child’s 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English; Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to press “one” to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than “Old Glory” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
Maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird feeder.

I am a 62 year old retired woman who is willing to Volunteer to Build the Fence that Congress has already allocated millions of dollars to build. Where's the money? Where's the fence?
Recall the mandate of United States Citizens, if you will:
1- No North American Union
2- Secure the United States borders
3- No Amnesty for unlawful (law-breaking) immigrants
4- Build the Fence
5- Aggressive Deportation
6- No Benefits
7- No Work authorization to unlawful immigrants
8- English First before anyone is allowed to emigrate to the USofA
9- No Birthright Citizenship
Mr. President, Congress has approved the building of 843 miles of double fencing along the US border with Mexico. Only 14 miles of single fencing have been built. What kind of slap-in-the-face is this?
Mr. President, if you want to leave office with a legacy you can be proud of, it's time to get this fence building completed. There's money allocated to build it. You don't need 62-year old retired women volunteers. You know what the correct action is. So take it.
At this point in your Presidency, I am ashamed I voted for you. And I'm not sure I'll vote for another Republican for President if that person is going to follow in your footsteps and continue to sell the United States to foreign countries, piece by piece.
At the current time, only you can salvage the United States. How? By following through on the Mandate of the Citizens of the United States of America and Building That Fence along the Southern Border.
It's time to act or you alone will be responsible for the failure of the Republican Party to inspire trust and confidence in US Citizen Voters.
Remember your pledge on the day you took office as President:
I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Be faithful to the United States.

When you vote next time be sure to ask how your U.S. Congress members will vote....
These are stunning numbers and apparently easily verifiable.... Proves once again that Washington just doesn't get it!
I hope these 14 reasons are read by the majority of Americans. Then they will have verification to confront their U.S. Congress members.
1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.
2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!
5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
11. Homeland Security Report: During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border.
12. The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."
13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.
14. Violent Crimes Institute"The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States".
So using the LOWEST estimates, the annual cost OF ILLEGAL ALIENS (Unlawful Immigrants) is $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR! So if deporting them costs between $206 and $230 BILLION DOLLARS, by deporting unlawful immigrants we'll still be ahead after the first year!!!
Americans need to wake up! When it comes time to vote remember which politicians support the illegal aliens, keep them out of office This is not a matter of political party, it's the survival of America!

Illegal Immigration Response
Where's the Fence?
A Coming Merger Between Mexico, Canada and the U.S?
The President is not listening to United States Citizens. WE are the ONLY ones who legally vote in Elections. Why is President Bush, why is Homeland Security, why is the United States Attorney General flipping off United States Citizens and planning a North American Union, similar to the European Union??? (And we all know how successful that is!)
Contact your Congressional Representatives. Tell them what you think about their inaction as President Bush works to destroy the sovereign independence of the United States of America! Vote with your pocketbook, even if it's just a few dollars. Support Grassfire dot org!
What President Bush is doing will end up with every US Citizen losing the fundamental rights outlined in the Bill of Rights. That includes the right to keep and bear arms! Look at the mess Europe is in. Do you want this to happen here?
You must act NOW or it WILL happen.

In this area of North Georgia, there are a lot of uneducated illegal undocumented Mexicans as well as undocumented Mexican Indians (Mayan and the like). These Mexicans cannot read or write Spanish and the Mexican Indians don’t speak Spanish as their first language. The illegal undocumented Mexicans drive while unlicensed, do not have auto insurance, and have a high rate of DUIs. Few towns in North Georgia actually demand jail time of Mexican’s with DUIs thereby giving them ample opportunity for vehicular manslaughter before they are removed from the general population and jail time is not guaranteed. Unlawful alien Mexicans with DUIs are merely fined, again and again. Every week there are at least two unlawful aliens with DUIs listed in the local weekly newspaper. The Sheriff’s department knows the men they arrest are unlawful aliens, but say that Homeland Security won’t come pick them up, so they just let the men go . . . every time they’re arrested for a DUI.
Does Mexico allow just anyone to enter their Country and siphon off their resources? Not for a minute. Mexico gave “Dog the Bounty Hunter” a lot of negative publicity when he located a criminal there and brought him to justice! There is a totally and completely unfair border practice between Mexico and the USofA and now the USofA wants to give Mexico a reward? NO!
NO, No, no. I agree with this statement made by www.grassfire.org: . . . the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America that President Bush agreed to on March 23, 2005, [that] President Bush has decided to integrate us -- political and economic integration with Mexico and Canada – he’s going to pursue that agenda whether he explains it to the American people fully or not.
Sir, this is wrong. This is the wrong direction for who the USofA is to take. It goes against everything the USofA was founded on. Our founding fathers would rise up from their graves if they could, take up arms, and fight again for the sovereignty and independence of the USofA. If we lose our independence, we will lose everything every soldier has fought for, from the Revolutionary War to the current conflagration. The USofA will be “undone” and this will be the end of our way of life.
Please do what you can to see that this bill is not passed. Please do not allow any ‘deals’ between Vincente Fox and any US President other than those that keep Mexicans and their drugs in Mexico to be honored. The USofA does not need to pay Mexico to keep their own laws. We only need to pay for a fence between the two countries to resolve the ‘drug runner’ problems. And I expect the cost of a real fence will be much less than the money the USofA would spend trying to pay off Mexican officials so that they honor their badges and enforce their own laws.
