10 Reasons to vote Democratic

10 Reasons to vote Democratic!

Clicking on an ad sponsor helps to support The Butterfly Bonsai

1. I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

4. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

6. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat because I think that it's better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

And I'll add # 11. I voted Democrat because I am too stupid to think for myself. I'm a "sheeple" and believe the benevolent government will look out for me and take good care of me. And it's important for our comrade leaders in D.C. to live better, have better health insurance, and be able to jet to anywhere in the world on my dime. Let's all hold hands and sing "kum by yah"!

25 Reasons to Dislike Liberal Ideology

25 Reasons to Dislike the Liberal Ideology

Sponsor Ads help to fund The Butterfly Bonsai

1) Only liberals would be cruel enough to pick on kids running lemonade stands with a permit, children putting on Christmas plays at school and the Boy Scouts.
2) Because the closest thing to Sodom and Gomorrah in the modern world is San Francisco and Berkeley.

3) Whether you’re talking about cop killers, terrorists, radical Islamists or dictators, all you have to do is say, “I hate America,” and liberals start to sympathize with you.

4) Liberals are actually bothered by people who do love America. On the rare occasion when you do see a liberal waving a flag, look for a camera.

5) The same people who voted Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama into office think they’re smarter than tradition, the Founding Fathers and God Himself.

6) Liberals might not want to admit it, but the world would have been a better place if Mary Jo Kopechne had crawled up out of that car instead of Ted Kennedy.

7) Only an ass could like Bill Maher, Alan Grayson or Sheila Jackson Lee.

8) Liberals believe in taking money from people who earn it, handing it out as bribes in order to get more power and then using that power to hurt the people that are giving them money.

9) The same liberal who’ll laugh at a rape joke about Sarah Palin and then attack Michele Bachmann’s family will then turn around and accuse someone else of being sexist for respectfully noting that a woman is attractive.

10) Liberals view hooking people on welfare and food stamps as a core part of their election strategy, which is terrible for the country, shows they have no character and requires more than a little hatred for poor people.

11) The dumbest, most close-minded and mean spirited people in all of politics are inevitably liberals who are convinced they’re brilliant, open-minded and compassionate because they call themselves liberals.

12) A policy that makes liberals feel superior and caring that doesn’t work and wastes billions is considered a smashing success because they genuinely DON’T CARE WHETHER THEIR POLICIES ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE OR NOT.

13) The same liberal who pretends to be angry about Susan Smith or Casey Anthony will then turn around and give the thumbs up to women who do the same thing to their children via abortion.

14) There’s a reason why the average homeschooled kid gets a better education than he would in a public school run by liberals. It’s because the kid’s parents are interested in educating him while his liberal teachers view public schools as just another way to indoctrinate children.

15) Noam Chomsky is an America-hating creep and to think of him as some kind of genius, you have to both despise our country enough to suspend your disbelief and be largely ignorant of world history.

16) Anyone whose first reaction after a terrorist attack is, “Why do they hate us?” is just an intolerable douche.

17) Liberals talk up Hillary Clinton as the most prominent and important female politician in America; yet her entire political career is based on the fact that she married Bill Clinton. That’s actually kind of pathetic.

18) Liberals have been big supporters of slavery, Indian massacres, the KKK, eugenics, fascism, communism and Jim Crow laws. Then, down the road, after liberals finally join everyone else, they try to claim that conservatives still support all the practices that we fought liberals on from the beginning.

19) Liberals think black Americans are inferior to whites, which is why the worst, most crime-ridden places to live in America are inevitably run by liberals. That’s acceptable to liberals because they don’t think black Americans deserve any better.

20) A liberal is more likely to support a man who murders a cop like Mumia Abu Jamal than cops who want to regularly patrol a bad neighborhood in force to keep the criminals from terrorizing the innocent people who live there.

21) The average middle aged Tea Party-er who’s going to rallies, talking about the Constitution and calling for reduced spending cares more about “the children” than 99% of the liberals out there who demand that we support one stupid program after the other “for the children.”

22) You have to be a horrible human being to be okay with terrorists like Bill Ayers teaching kids at a college.

23) Because liberals are unable to ever admit they’re wrong, they systematically ruin and destroy everything they become involved with and then either point the finger elsewhere or demand even more government involvement to fix the problems they created.

24) Detroit – and, yes, liberals did that.

25) Even “liberal Christians” are generally supportive of other liberals who attack Christianity, which is why “liberal Christians” is in quotes.

Illegal Aliens Complain They Get Student Loans Instead of GRANTS

Illegal Aliens Complain They Get Student Loans Instead of GRANTS
By Top Right News on January 7, 2014

Outrageous. But not at all surprising. Illegal aliens, who broke our nation’s laws to come here and stay here, yet receive benefits that millions of American citizens don’t get — in-state tuition — are now complaining that they don’t get it for FREE.

That’s right, despite the University of California system’s generous and shameful pledge to help illegal aliens earn a college degree — at the same time they are slashing aid to citizen students to the bone —  those illegal students are complaining that the aid will come by way of student loans instead of grants.

As UC officials discuss specifics on how the $5 million UC President Janet Napolitano recently budgeted to support illegal alien students will be allocated – much of which will go to student loan programs, it’s been decided - some student activists have bemoaned that it’s not fair to strap stressed out, disadvantaged students in the country illegally with college debt.

    “We think that the 5 million dollars will have an impact if the money goes directly into the pockets of undocumented students,” By Any Means Necessary campus activist group leader David Douglasstold The Daily Californian in an email.

The Californian goes on to report:

    Sophomore Ivan Villasenor Madriz, an undocumented student, spoke with representatives from the UC Office of the President and other undocumented student representatives across the UC campuses in a conference call the evening of Dec. 18.

    Madriz said the students raised concerns about the use of the funds for loans rather than other types of aid such as grants and work-study. He said loans should not be considered “aid” because they are only increasing student debt and putting more pressure on students.

    “The loans that are given out are making one hole to fill another,” he said. “It defeats the purpose of so-called ‘financial aid.’ ”

California — America’s Sanctuary State — going down the rathole of debt to pay for millions of illegal aliens, while schools, hositals and social services go bankrupt. This is what will happen to America should the Obama-Schumer-Rubio-Ryan amnesty become law.

Voluntary government checkpoints spark backlash

Voluntary government checkpoints spark backlash


Larry Copeland, USA TODAY 12:30 a.m. EST January 7, 2014

Checkpoints, which the government insists are voluntary, are creating a backlash because of the presence of uniformed police officers. Some police departments won't participate anymore.

A tactic used by the federal government to gather information for anti-drunken and drugged driving programs is coming under criticism in cities around the country, and some local police agencies say they will no longer take part.

The tactic involves a subcontractor for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that uses off-duty but uniformed police at voluntary roadside checkpoints where motorists are asked on their behavior behind the wheel. In some cases, workers at the checkpoints collect blood and saliva samples, in addition to breath samples. NHTSA has said previously that the surveys do not collect any DNA. Drivers are not charged at the checkpoints.

In an era of rampant distrust of the federal government and in the wake of the Obama administration's National Security Agency surveillance scandal in which the agency has collected telephone calling records from millions of unsuspecting Americans, the checkpoints have come under intense criticism in several cities this year.

"Five years ago it would have been a different story," says St. Charles County, Mo., Sheriff Tom Neer, who recently authorized deputies to participate in a checkpoint in his St. Louis suburb and saw a public backlash. "There're just such strong anti-government feelings among people. Under the circumstances, I would not allow them to do it again. It's just because of the perception."

The NHTSA has conducted the surveys for more than 40 years, in cities across the USA and usually at roughly 10-year intervals. In many cases, off-duty, uniformed police officers randomly wave motorists over; they are then asked by workers for subcontractor Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation if they will participate in the voluntary survey. Drivers who decline are allowed to leave.

However, the mere presence of uniformed officers gives the checkpoints an aura of authority, says Mary Catherine Roper, a senior staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania. She is studying the issue there after motorists complained about a survey checkpoint last month in Reading.

"We have a whole bunch of rules about when police can pull you over," she says. "It looks like an exercise of official authority when a cop pulls you over. People assume it's mandatory, and of course you're going to stop. That's a constitutional problem right there.

"Normally, police cannot pull you over unless they have a good reason for thinking you've done something wrong," Roper says. "There's no exemption to the Constitution for conducting a survey. They're pulling people off the road."

She suggests "there are lots of other places you can talk to drivers. You could hand out notes at a toll booth asking them to participate. You could do them at highway rest stops. There are a lot of ways to do this that do not involve … the government forcing you off the road."

This year's round of surveys is only the second time that data have been obtained on drug use by drivers.

In an e-mailed statement, NHTSA defended the surveys: "Each year, close to 10,000 people die in drunk driving crashes: 27 people a day, or one person every 53 minutes, according to data (from NHTSA)," the statement says.

"To better understand the issue, the agency has regularly conducted its National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drugged Driving in communities across the country for over 40 years," according to the statement. "The survey provides useful data about alcohol and drug use by drivers, and participation is completely voluntary and anonymous. More than 60 communities across the country will participate this year, many of which participated in the previous survey in 2007. NHTSA always works closely with state and local safety officials and local law enforcement to conduct these surveys as we work to better inform our efforts to reduce drunk and drugged driving."

Drivers have reportedly been offered $10 for cheek swabs and $50 for blood.

The checkpoints spurred complaints in November from drivers in the Fort Worth area. Fort Worth Police Chief Jeffrey Halstead apologized for his officers' participation on the department's Facebook page. He added: "Any future Federal survey of this nature, which jeopardizes the public's trust, will not be approved for the use of Fort Worth police."

And in June, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, a Republican, said the stops were "bad timing" after drivers complained about checkpoints in St. Clair County and Bibb County, both near Birmingham. State officials investigated and found that motorists didn't report "undue pressure" to participate, but suggested to Bentley that state police refrain from helping with future studies.

Neer said six of his off-duty, uniformed officers were "duped" into moonlighting at the checkpoints. "Our department coordinator got information from the subcontractor, and came to me," Neer says. "I approve all overtime compliance with private entities. They wanted to know if we'd provide a couple of deputies just for security."

At the Dec. 6 and 7 checkpoints, uniformed deputies in marked cruisers flagged down motorists and showed them to a marked area alongside the road where a NHTSA subcontractor asked if they wanted to participate in the survey. Those who declined were allowed to leave, Neer says.

He says he had not expected the deputies to actively participate, but only to provide security.

If you do not believe in smoking, don't smoke!

If you are an Illegal Alien, you have ZERO rights in my country! You should be forced to go to your country of origin as soon as you are located! And no, you are not "undocumented", you are ILLEGAL! That says it all!

If I have to be drug tested to go to work, you should be drug tested to receive Welfare benefits of any kind!

It takes an ID card to drive, board a plane, cash a check, open a bank account, get Welfare, so many other things. It should take an ID to be able to vote!

If you commit animal abuse, you should NEVER be allowed to own another of God's creatures. EVER!

Never, ever talk trash about our Military Service Men and Women! They protect your right to trash the government! They are doing the duty you can't or won't do!

Our Military NEEDS You NOW!!!

Our Military NEEDS you NOW!!!

Taken from MilSpouse Magazine

The holiday season has drawn to a close.  We (the military community) have been patiently waiting for Congress’ return.  We are waiting for them to execute on beginning to evaluate the repeal of the deferred compensation for military retirees via the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) reduction.

Over the last week or so, a couple of articles have made their way to the surface that actually endorse this deferred compensation cut.  One, in particular, actually suggests that since he doesn’t need it neither then should anyone else.

I’m sorry…whaa-aat?

In the interest of full disclose, this particular veteran, not-in-need-of-money apparently, is a retired flag officer.  In civilian speak, that means he makes quite a bit more than most and certainly quite a bit more than the average.

Fighting for the repeal of deferred compensation cuts is not for HIM.  It’s for everyone else.

And, also to provide some perspective, when these “luxury” numbers get tossed around like “$70,000 per year including housing and allowances”, you need to understand a few things:

  •     NONE of these “housing and allowances” are included in the retirement compensation.
  •     Retirement compensation ONLY includes ONE HALF of base pay which is significantly less than what a military member gets paid overall while on active duty. 
  •     When “retirement” begins after 20 years, it is deferred compensation.  That means, the military members who get paid on active duty are actually agreeing to take less up front (while they are on active duty) with the proviso that they get what was earned when active duty is over (retirement).
  •     Retirement is not the right word to use.  AT.  ALL.  No one retires from the military in the civilian sense of the word.
  •     None of this matters at all.  Why?  Because those currently serving and those already in the retirement system, agreed to terms up front.  Those terms need to be honored.  In the civilian sector, a cut in deferred compensation without due process is a gross breach of contract.
  •     Don’t confuse a “job” with “duty.”   That’s why it’s called Active DUTY.  Not Active JOB.
  •     The talking heads saying things like “luxury”, “generous” and “working aged” are using those terms very deliberately.  And, they are hoping that by using them, you (the average American Joe or Jane) will then suddenly feel like the military are somehow getting too much.   I can assure you they are not.
  •     The talking heads also say, “Get a job at Walmart and see what you get” and to them I say, “Grab a gun and leave your family to go to Afghanistan for 15 months out of duty, over and over, and see what you get (or what you lose).”
  •     Military cannot---CANNOT---speak out for themselves.  They cannot without fear of retribution say a single, solitary word on their own behalf.

So, I urge you think back.  And, think back a while.

Then, I want you to remember:
                      Who ran IN to the Boston Marathon?

                      Who saved over 2000 people in the flood ravaged 9th Ward after Katrina?

                      And, then turned right around and did the same after the same
                      coastline  was hit by follow-on Hurricane Rita?

                      And, again three years later with Hurricane Ike?

                      Who took personal leave and helped rebuild the shores of
                      New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy?

                      Who aided Joplin, Missouri after a devastating tornado?

The military does this while providing humanitarian aid and supplies, as well as emergency shelters and hospitals around the globe when human beings need them.  Any human beings.  They do all of this---ALL of this---while at war on at least two fronts.    They do this while war-weary, battle-beaten and so worn down that another 15 month deployment seems impossible.   Most of our military have done greater than 3 deployments in the last 12 years.  That’s almost 4 YEARS they have been gone.  

FOUR YEARS.

They do it out of a sense of duty.  Not to Congress.  Not to this nation.  But, to you.  To me.  To every American who has watched them run in when everyone else runs out.  To every American who, in their darkest hour, had no other hope in the world but to grab onto the hand of an American service member.  To every American and every human being who needed something, ANYthing, to hold on to.

When the worst happens, it is the military that comes running.  Every.  Single.  Time.

And, they need you now.

They need each and every one of you to stand beside THEM and fight for what they were promised.   Please.

What is Modern Slavery

What is Modern Slavery?


Over the past 15 years, “trafficking in persons” and “human trafficking” have been used as umbrella terms for activities involved when someone obtains or holds a person in compelled service.
The United States government considers trafficking in persons to include all of the criminal conduct involved in forced labor and sex trafficking, essentially the conduct involved in reducing or holding someone in compelled service. Under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act as amended (TVPA) and consistent with the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (Palermo Protocol), individuals may be trafficking victims regardless of whether they once consented, participated in a crime as a direct result of being trafficked, were transported into the exploitative situation, or were simply born into a state of servitude. Despite a term that seems to connote movement, at the heart of the phenomenon of trafficking in persons are the many forms of enslavement, not the activities involved in international transportation.

Forced Labor

Also known as involuntary servitude, forced labor may result when unscrupulous employers exploit workers made more vulnerable by high rates of unemployment, poverty, crime, discrimination, corruption, political conflict, or even cultural acceptance of the practice. Immigrants are particularly vulnerable, but individuals also may be forced into labor in their own countries. Female victims of forced or bonded labor, especially women and girls in domestic servitude, are often sexually exploited as well.

Sex Trafficking

When an adult is coerced, forced, or deceived into prostitution – or maintained in prostitution through coercion – that person is a victim of trafficking. All of those involved in recruiting, transporting, harboring, receiving, or obtaining the person for that purpose have committed a trafficking crime. Sex trafficking can also occur within debt bondage, as women and girls are forced to continue in prostitution through the use of unlawful “debt” purportedly incurred through their transportation, recruitment, or even their crude “sale,” which exploiters insist they must pay off before they can be free.
It is critical to understand that a person’s initial consent to participate in prostitution is not legally determinative; if an individual is thereafter held in service through psychological manipulation or physical force, that person is a trafficking victim and should receive the benefits outlined in the United Nations’ Palermo Protocol and applicable laws.

Bonded Labor

One form of coercion is the use of a bond, or debt. Often referred to as “bonded labor” or “debt bondage,” the practice has long been prohibited under U.S. law by its Spanish name, peonage, and the Palermo Protocol calls for its criminalization as a form of trafficking in persons. Workers around the world fall victim to debt bondage when traffickers or recruiters unlawfully exploit an initial debt the worker assumed as part of the terms of employment. Workers may also inherit intergenerational debt in more traditional systems of bonded labor.

Debt Bondage Among Migrant Laborers

Abuses of contracts and hazardous conditions of employment for migrant laborers do not necessarily constitute human trafficking. However, the burden of illegal costs and debts on these laborers in the source country, often with the support of labor agencies and employers in the destination country, can contribute to a situation of debt bondage. This is often exacerbated when the worker’s status in the country is tied to the employer in the context of employment-based temporary work programs and there is no effective redress for abuse.

Involuntary Domestic Servitude

A unique form of forced labor is the involuntary servitude of domestic workers, whose workplace is informal, connected to their off-duty living quarters, and not often shared with other workers. Such an environment, which often socially isolates domestic workers, is conducive to nonconsensual exploitation since authorities cannot inspect private property as easily as formal workplaces. Investigators and service providers report many cases of untreated illnesses and, tragically, widespread sexual abuse, which in some cases may be symptoms of a situation of involuntary servitude. Ongoing international efforts seek to ensure that not only that administrative remedies are enforced but also that criminal penalties are enacted against those who hold others in involuntary domestic servitude.

Forced Child Labor

Most international organizations and national laws recognize that children may legally engage in certain forms of work. There is a growing consensus, however, that the worst forms of child labor should be eradicated. The sale and trafficking of children and their entrapment in bonded and forced labor are among these worst forms of child labor. A child can be a victim of human trafficking regardless of the location of that exploitation. Indicators of forced labor of a child include situations in which the child appears to be in the custody of a non-family member who has the child perform work that financially benefits someone outside the child’s family and does not offer the child the option of leaving. Anti-trafficking responses should supplement, not replace, traditional actions against child labor, such as remediation and education. However, when children are enslaved, their abusers should not escape criminal punishment by virtue of longstanding patters of limited responses to child labor practices rather than more effective law enforcement action.

Child Soldiers

Child soldiering can be a manifestation of human trafficking where it involves the unlawful recruitment or use of children—through force, fraud, or coercion—as combatants, or for labor or sexual exploitation by armed forces. Perpetrators may be government forces, paramilitary organizations, or rebel groups. Many children are forcibly abducted to be used as combatants. Others are made unlawfully to work as porters, cooks, guards, servants, messengers, or spies. Young girls can be forced to marry or have sex with male combatants. Both male and female child soldiers are often sexually abused and are at high risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases.

Child Sex Trafficking

According to UNICEF, as many as two million children are subjected to prostitution in the global commercial sex trade. International covenants and protocols obligate criminalization of the commercial sexual exploitation of children. The use of children in the commercial sex trade is prohibited under both U.S. law and the Palermo Protocol as well as by legislation in countries around the world. There can be no exceptions and no cultural or socioeconomic rationalizations preventing the rescue of children from sexual servitude. Sex trafficking has devastating consequences for minors, including long-lasting physical and psychological trauma, disease (including HIV/AIDS), drug addiction, unintended pregnancy, malnutrition, social ostracism, and death.

Modern Slavery Statistics

Modern Slavery Statistics

Today, most people usually think of slavery in terms of history classes they have taken, or movies they have seen. The fact is, modern slavery is just as real, just as brutal, and just as inhuman as any history book. Modern slavery controls, and in some cases claims, the lives of millions of people across the globe. To give you an idea of what exactly modern slavery looks like, we’ve put together this page, culling statistics from multiple sources to give you the best picture possible. We want to present you with modern slavery facts, so that you know exactly what it is we are trying to fight:

The following statistics are from the UN GIFT (Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking):
  • The Victims
    • The majority of trafficking victims are between 18 and 24 years of age
    • An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year
    • 95% of victims experienced physical or sexual violence during trafficking (based on data from selected European countries)
    • 43% of victims are used for forced commercial sexual exploitation, of whom 98 per cent are women and girls
    • 32% of victims are used for forced economic exploitation, of whom 56 per cent are women and girls
    • Many trafficking victims have at least middle-level education
  • The Traffickers
    • 52% of those recruiting victims are men, 42% are women and 6% are both men and women
    • In 54% of cases the recruiter was a stranger to the victim, 46% of cases the recruiter was known to victim
    • The majority of suspects involved in the trafficking process are nationals of the country where the trafficking process is occurring
  • The Profits
    • Estimated global annual profits made from the exploitation of all trafficked forced labour are US$ 31.6 billion
    • Of this:
      • US$ 15.5 billion – 49% – is generated in industrialized economies
      • US$ 9.7 billion – 30.6% is generated in Asia and the Pacific
      • US$ 1.3 billion – 4.1% is generated in Latin America and the Caribbean
      • US$ 1.6 billion – 5% is generated in sub-Saharan Africa
      • US$ 1.5 billion – 4.7% is generated in the Middle East and North Africa
  • Prosecutions
    • In 2006 there were only 5,808 prosecutions and 3,160 convictions throughout the world
    • This means that for every 800 people trafficked, only one person was convicted in 2006
The following statistics are gathered from an article in the Christian Science Monitor:
  • Today, every country has a law against slavery
  • Between 14,000 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the US annually
  • In 1850, the cost of a slave (in today’s dollars) was $40,000. In modern slavery, the price of a slave in $30.
  • 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across national borders each year.
  • According to the United Nations, profits from human trafficking rank it among the top three revenue earners for organized crime, after drugs and arms.
A final note on disparity in modern slavery statistics made by The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Trafficking in Persons: Global Patterns report, April 2006:
“Due to its clandestine nature, accurate statistics on the magnitude of the human trafficking problem at any level are elusive and unreliable. Figures that are available range from the actual number of victims rescued or repatriated to estimates of the total number of trafficked victims in existence. The lack of reliable statistics can be attributed to a number of factors… [One of these problems] is the tendency to, often unknowingly, mix data related to human trafficking, migrant-smuggling and irregular migration, which convolutes the true human trafficking picture. In addition, data is often collected only on cases of trans-border human trafficking and not on internal human trafficking.”

10 Countries where slavery is most prevelant

Please, do NOT spend your money in these areas of the world!


Thomson Reuters Foundation - Some 30 million people worldwide are victims of sex trafficking, debt bondage, forced labor and other forms of modern slavery, a global index on slavery showed on Thursday.
Here are key facts on the 10 countries with the highest prevalence of slavery per head of population, according to the Global Slavery Index 2013 by Walk Free, an Australia-based rights group.
1. MAURITANIA
* Some 151,000 people - or almost 4 percent of the population - are thought to be slaves, according to the index. Estimates by other groups put the prevalence rate at up to 20 percent.
* Most common is chattel slavery, meaning that slave status is passed down through generations.
* Slavery has been outlawed in Mauritania since 1961 and trafficking since 2003. Forced marriage and debt bondage are not criminalized.
2. HAITI
* Haiti has around 209,000 slaves, fueled by high poverty, lack of access to social services and a system of child labor known as "restavek", in which poor children from rural areas are sent to work with families in cities.
* Rights groups say restavek children are often deprived of food, sleep and schooling and are physically, mentally and sexually abused.
* A draft law on human trafficking is now before parliament that would make child trafficking a criminal offense.
3. PAKISTAN
* Some 2.1 million Pakistanis are thought to be enslaved, especially children and bonded laborers.
* The Asian Development Bank estimates that 1.8 million are in bonded labor, though some non-governmental organizations put the number far higher.
* Many Pakistanis migrate to Gulf states, Iran, Turkey, South Africa and elsewhere in search of work, where they fall prey to unscrupulous labor agents who withhold passports and don't pay wages.
4. INDIA
* With an estimated 13.9 million slaves, India is home to almost half the world's slave population.
* Almost all forms of slavery are prevalent, ranging from inter-generational bonded labor to sex trafficking, child labor and forced marriage.
* Experts say India has excellent anti-slavery laws but enforcement is sporadic and inconsistent. It remains one of the few nations not to have ratified the Worst Forms of Child Labor Convention.
5. NEPAL
* An estimated 259,000 Nepalis are enslaved, both inside the country and abroad.
* About 90 percent of the 2.5 million Nepalis working abroad are undocumented, making them vulnerable to forced labor.
* A crippled economy, endemic corruption and institutionalized ethnic and gender discrimination have created conditions for slavery to thrive since the end of Nepal's decade-long civil war in 2006.
6. MOLDOVA
* With an estimated 33,000 slaves, Moldova is mainly a source country for modern slavery.
* Moldovans in Ukraine, Russia, the United States, Germany, Belarus and elsewhere are exploited in the sex industry, construction, agriculture and domestic work.
* Moldovans have been trafficked for purposes of organ removal - although such cases have been on the decline.
7. BENIN
* Benin has some 80,000 slaves, mainly women and children trafficked into the sex trade, domestic work or forced labor.
* The International Organization for Migration says more than 40,000 children are trafficking victims. Most work on cotton or cashew plantations or as servants in houses.
* Vudusi or "shrine slavery" persists, in which young girls are forced to live in and care for shrines, where many are habitually sexually abused, rights groups say.
8. IVORY COAST
* Around 156,000 people are subject to forced labor and sexual exploitation.
* Many children are forced into work in mining, agriculture, fishing, construction, domestic work and as street vendors and shoe-shiners.
* A 2010 government report estimated more than 30,000 children were forced laborers in rural areas, many in the cocoa sector. Ivory Coast produces 40 percent of the world's cocoa.
9. GAMBIA
* 14,000 in Gambia are involved in slavery, mostly in domestic servitude and forced begging and prostitution, including child sex tourism.
* Women, girls and boys are trafficked to Gambia from Senegal, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau and Benin for commercial sexual exploitation.
* UNICEF estimates some 60,000 children in Gambia are vulnerable to modern slavery, including orphans and street children.
10. GABON
* With an estimated 13,000 slaves, Gabon is both a destination and transit country for victims of modern slavery.
* Girls are mostly trafficked into domestic servitude or sex work while boys are trafficked for manual work.
* Forced and child marriages are common, and some girls are coerced to work in restaurants or market stalls.

Socialism does NOT work!! Wake up America!!!






Socialism Does NOT Work!


  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!.

  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

A Military Coup Against Obama Is Inevitable

A Military Coup Against Obama Is Inevitable

Friday, January 3, 2014 12:57
Taken from: (Before It's News)
 


Ex-CIA deep cover agent, Dr. Jim Garrow has stated that a military coup against Obama is inevitable. Despite Garrow’s pronouncement, the facts speak for themselves. Even if the military was not loyal to the American people and could care less about the preservation of the Constitution, the military must fight back if for no other reason than simple self-preservation.
As a nation, we can afford bouts of economic downturns, civil strife and even some degree of political mistrust of our leaders. A nation can take definitive steps to recover these maladies. However, the one thing that America cannot tolerate is the compromising of our military, and since Obama has been president, the effectiveness of our military has been greatly compromised as witnessed by the firing of 200+ command level officers.

A Crisis of Military Leadership

The number of generals either drummed out of the service or forced into early retirement since Obama took office is growing by the month. Untruthful pretexts have been manufactured by the Obama administration to usher out many of our top military commanders. Many of these generals were among our most effective and experienced military leaders. Almost all of these generals are being replaced by men with less military experience and this fact alone leads to a less effective military.
This unprecedented parade of musical chairs, being played out against our military leaders, began when Obama demanded the resignation of General McKiernan. This marked the first time, since the time of the Korean War when General Douglas MacArthur was fired by President Truman in a disagreement over strategy, that a battlefield general was fired by a president. The strategy backfired in Korea and it backfired in Afghanistan as McKiernan was deemed to be to old school to suit Obama. He was old school to Obama because he wanted to kill the enemy while minimizing American losses. Obama wanted to adopt a policy which allowed the enemy to open fire first which, before Americans could return fire. This has surely caused the casualty rate to rise.
After he was fired, McKiernan challenged Obama’s impotent leadership by stating that “I don’t understand ever putting your men and women in harm’s way, without their having the full ability to protect themselves. That also means operating on actionable intelligence to defeat insurgents, and protect your forces.That’s how you keep your soldiers alive.” Obama apparently does not care how many soldiers get to come back home to their families.
Following McKiernan, Obama appointed Stanley McChrystal. But very soon, the new general grew weary of forcing his troops to accept fire before shooting back for fear of offending the Afghans. McChrystal later claimed that he had presented a plan to Obama for defeating the Afghan resistance, but Obama continued to promote rules of engagement which served to make the Americans a less effective fighting force. The relationship between McChrystal and Obama became strained and McChrystal was fired over a negative Rolling Stone article, written by Michael Hastings, that revealed that McChrystal had become disgusted with Obama. Petraeus replaced McChrystal who was in-turn quickly replaced by General Allen who then became entrapped in the same scandal, and the confirmation of General Dunford had to be rushed through and subsequently completed in record time. Count them, Obama has gone through four generals and is now on his fifth battlefield commander. His firing of two-four star generals is unprecedented in American History. This is what Stalin did when he assumed the dictatorship of Russia and it almost cost the Russians victory in WWII. The war in Afghanistan is lost thanks to Obama.
General Mattis, the Commander of Central Command offended several administration personnel and was fired on the spot. Admiral Gayoutte, the former commander of Carrier Task Force Three, operating in the Gulf, was fired last fall. General Hamm, the former commander of AFRICOM was fired last fall as well. Gayoutte and Hamm both tried to launch a coordinated rescue mission designed to save the life of Ambassador Stevens in Libya. Both leaders were refusing to follow a Presidential order, delivered through Leon Panetta, to stand down with regard to the Stevens affair. Both men were arrested prior to dispatching the rescue troops.
To this point, we may just have a case of gross incompetence. Yet, aren’t we supposed to fighting al-Qaeda? According to our government, did al-Qaeda plan and carry out the attacks of 9/11? Then why are we supporting al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria? Treason of stupidity?
When the leadership of the military is greatly compromised, it cannot help but to weaken the fighting effectiveness of our troops. There is more, but suffice it to say that Obama goes through senior military leaders more times than he changes his underwear.

The Air Force Crisis

Air Force combat pilots are leaving the Air Force at an alarming rate and, as such, this has constituted an emergency. The USAF is now offering bonuses that amount to several hundred thousand dollars in a desperate attempt to retain their services. The pilots cite the low pay (Obama just slashed Congressionally approved pay raises by over half), being overworked and the ability to find more lucrative employment in the private sector.

Obama Repeatedly Demonstrates Disdain for the Military

Obama refuses to salute flag. Obama refuses to salute the American flag.
Following the inauguration, the President , according to Major General Patrick Brady (Ret), is supposed to attend an inaugural balls honoring veterans, including  a special ceremony for Medal of Honor winners. Obama did not attend, thus, making him the only President to snub such an important military event.
And he refuses again! And he refuses again!

Under Obama, women are now being groomed for combat. This will significantly weaken our military as a fighting force. Women do not possess the upper body strength, quickness, or stamina to survive in combat. Rape is at all-time high in the military and nothing is being done about it. The military is not a corporation. The military does not score points for fielding the most fair army, it is kill or be killed. Women’s rights apply in every other sector of American life, except the military. 
...but he will bow to a Saudi Prince Obama may refuse to salute the American Flag, but he will bow to a Saudi King.

Obama Is Attempting to Deindustrialize the US

When Obama was first elected, he attempted to get congress to support his cap and trade legislation which would have reduced individual energy use by an estimated 80%. This would have been national suicide. I almost forgot to mention that Obama and his Senior White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett, helped to found and then fund the Chicago Climate Exchange which was to oversee a 10 trillion dollar per year management of cap and trade activities and policies. Now, Obama is seeking to bypass Congress and have the EPA impose carbon emission regulations. This is unconstitutional and it will effectively nationalize the American energy industry and place it under the control of Obama. The net effect, is that America is being deindustrialized through these cap and trade policies.
America is being crushed by high energy rates, but Obama uses every regulatory power to stop drilling for oil and natural gas, denies permits for construction of nuclear power plants, and discourages the use of coal, oil shale and tar sands, where our reserves dwarf those of Saudi Arabia, and he killed the Keystone Pipeline. This cannot be explained away solely based on environmental concerns, because Obama applauds and promises to financially support Brazilian deep-water oil drilling.

The Ponzi Scheme Called Obamacare

Today, businesses are afraid to hire new employees because the government has captured the health care system on behalf of Big Pharma and the managed health care industry and nobody knows what is going to happen. Obamacare has unleashed massive new taxes and regulations, all of which are economy killers. Along with the death panel policies which are beginning to come to light, every American should look under their collective beds before going to bed.

The Most Unconstitutional President in History

1obama-and-the-consitutionBy signing the NDAA into law, he made the US government one of the most lawless nations on the face of the earth. Under the NDAA, an American citizen can be snatched off of the street, without due process (violation of the 5th Amendment).  Attorney General Eric Holder has asserted the right for Obama to murder US citizens under the NDAA.
Under Executive Order 13603, Obama can seize every resource, including all food and water supplies, both public and private, in the country and he can also conscript its citizens for any purpose.
The Most Divisive President In American History
Can there be any question that Obama is intentionally dividing Americans on the basis of race, economic class, gender, sexual orientation and, sometimes, religion. The fact that he ordered the Department of Justice to open an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case only inflamed the highly volatile case. This was, and is, a local law enforcement issue.
Obama’s policies are forcing Christians from the military in record numbers. Obama is forcing the military to accept open homosexuality in the military, while punishing soldiers for having open heterosexual relationships. As one general told me, the politically correct police are patrolling the halls of the Pentagon. Many veterans have told me that Obama’s new military provides benefits to people of Islamic faith not afforded to Christians. Along these lines, Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer, while instituting the Muslim Day of Prayer. This is hardly equitable. 
Prior to running for president, it has been widely reported that Barack and Michelle routinely attended religious services where the volatile and crude, as well as Un-American rhetoric was commonly preached from the pulpit of Jeremiah Wright. 

The Destroyer of the Economy

obama resistance is futileObama still blames Bush for the economy, but he claims the country is in the midst of an economic recovery. The recovery is working so well, that the number welfare recipients outnumbers the number of fulltime workers (101 million to 97 million). New job creation is at a standstill, energy prices are unrelenting and college loans administered by this President are astronomical. Obama has increased the national debt faster than the last five presidents combined. Does any of this sound like recovery to you?

There Is No End in Sight for Obama’s Destructive Policies

What did Michelle Obama mean when she said she’d never been proud of America in her adult life before her husband’s election to the highest office in the land? Why is Obama so insistent about the United States deferring to international bodies in the conduct of its foreign affairs? Why is he so determined that our nuclear and conventional forces and our military space program as well as our missile defenses be scaled down? He is taking a page right out of Benedict Arnold’s book of treason when he tried to give away the vital fort of West Point to the British.

Conclusion

Really? Really?

One does not have to be a conspiracy theorist to recognize the damage Obama is doing to the country and I haven’t even touched on his administrations lawlessness and his intent on signing the UN Small Arms Treaty Ban.
Is he a traitor or just plain stupid? I would say he’s both. However, treason trumps stupidity and this President needs to be impeached and tried for treason. And since Congress is bought and paid for, it is up to the military.

Why is it wrong to say black?

I am a white woman, well actually, rather a tanned creamy colored woman, with American Indian and Irish ancestors.

I have friends from all across the color lines, nationalities, and heritages.

But no one is willing to answer my questions about being Black or African American.


Very few Black people in this country are actually FROM Africa. yes, I know that there are some, but the majority of those who call themselves African Americans are actually from Africa. They may be generations removed from Africa, but we are talking multiple generations.

Slavery ended over 100 years ago. The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863.

When did it become wrong to call someone black? Brown? So many other colors?

When someone is pointing me out in a crowd, they may describe me as "That white woman over there with the long blonde hair, slightly pudgy, wearing the red shirt".

Why is it then wrong for me to say that "Jo is the black woman over there, with the close cropped Afro hair, slightly pudgy, wearing the red shirt"?

Again I ask, why is it wrong to call someone black?

If you are from America you are an American. Period. In my opinion.

’Obama’s Impeachable Offenses’ by Michael Connelly, J.DI.

 ’Obama’s Impeachable Offenses’ by Michael Connelly, J.DI.

I have repeatedly been asked by a number of different people if I think that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, has committed any offenses that subject him to being impeached by the Congress of the United States. The answer is without a doubt, yes because he has repeatedly breached his oath of office. The oath of office of the President of the United States is simple and concise. It reads:

“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.”

Instead of living up to that oath, President Obama has actively attempted to subvert, ignore, and completely destroy large parts of the Constitution. I believe the President of the United States is well aware of what he is doing, and it is completely intentional. Based from my years as a constitutional attorney, listed below are what I believe are impeachable offenses, and the list continues to grow.

1. President Obama has appointed numerous people to cabinet level positions without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, as is required by the Constitution. These individuals are given extraordinary power and independent funding, and are not under the scrutiny of Congress. The fact that Obama calls them Czars does not make them legal. He has also made illegal recess appointments of other members of his cabinet that required Senate approval. He simply declared that the U.S. Senate was in recess despite the fact that no such declaration had been made by the Senate. The President has no Constitutional authority to do this.

2. The push by Pres. Obama to pass healthcare legislation in the Congress of the United States that he was fully aware was unconstitutional. He has continued to use his powers and executive branch of government to implement this legislation despite the fact that a federal judge had declared the entire law unconstitutional, and ordered that it not be implemented. In addition, Obama has directed members of his administration to violate the right to freedom of religion protected by the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

Religious institutions such as churches and schools have been ordered to provide contraceptives and abortion inducing morning after pills to employees as part of the health care bill requirements. The fact that this is a direct violation of their religious teaching is of no concern to Obama.

3. Despite the fact that the United States Senate refused to pass the Cap and Trade bill, the President has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to use regulations to implement key portions of the bill, including those regulating so-called greenhouse gases. Obama himself has acknowledged that this will force energy prices in this country to skyrocket. He is taking these actions in direct defiance of the will of the people of the United States, the will of Congress, and the Constitution. The actions of the EPA include regulations that will force many coal burning power plants to close.

4. Through the Department of the Interior (DOI) Obama has placed a moratorium on offshore oil drilling or exploration off both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States and in parts of the Gulf of Mexico. He has also prohibited new drilling exploration on federal land in any states in the United States. These actions by the DOI have continued in direct defiance of several court orders issued by Federal Judge Martin Feldman in New Orleans, Louisiana declaring that the department had no authority to issue such a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf. In fact, the Secretary of the Department of the Interior (DOI) has been held in contempt by the same judge. The administration has claimed to be complying, but has tied up the drilling permits in so much red tape that the effect is the same.

5. Instead of allowing American companies to drill for oil domestically, Obama has betrayed the American people and authorized loans of billions of dollars to countries like Brazil and Mexico so that they can drill for oil, and then sell that oil to the United States. This will dramatically increase our dependence on foreign nations including Venezuela, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and even Libya that do not serve the interest of America or the American people.

Obama has also refused to approve the keystone pipeline from Canada to the United States that would not only lessen our dependence on oil from countries like Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, but create thousands of new jobs in the United States. The decision on the pipeline is one that belongs in the hands of the members of Congress, not the President.

6. President Obama has abdicated his responsibility to enforce the laws of the United States against illegal immigration. He has virtually declared our southern border an open border by declaring certain areas of federal land in states like Arizona as off-limits to federal, state, and local authorities. This is despite the fact that these areas are being used to bring in thousands of illegal immigrants, massive amounts of drugs, and also being used by foreign terrorists to infiltrate the United States. He has also ordered the border patrol not to arrest most illegal immigrants entering the country, and has stopped deportation proceedings against thousands of people in this country illegally. He is in effect instituting the so-called “dream act” bypassing the Congress of the United States which has sole authority over immigration matters.

7. The President and his Attorney General Eric Holder have clearly violated their oath of office by joining with foreign countries such as Mexico, Bolivia, and Columbia, in lawsuits against the sovereign states of Arizona, Georgia, and Alabama to stop them from enforcing the federal immigration laws.

8. President Obama has ordered the Federal Communications Commission to adopt regulations giving the federal government control of the Internet and its contents, including providing Obama with a kill switch that gives him authority to shut down the Internet if he sees fit. This is in direct violation of a decision by the United States Supreme Court that the FCC has no Constitutional authority to control the Internet.

There were two bills pending in Congress to effectively give Obama the kill switch he wants over the Internet. When these two proposals, the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) were withdrawn amid public outcry Obama announced he will sign an international treaty that purports to give him the same authority. He has signaled his intention to do this as an “Executive Act” and not bring the treaty to the Senate for ratification as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution. I believe he intends to take the same action in regard to the United Nations Small arms treaty and the UN Law of the Sea treaty that are both unlikely to get Senate approval.

9. One of the paramount responsibilities of the President of the United States and his executive branch of government is to enforce and defend laws adopted by Congress unless they are declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court. Obama has decided that he should ignore this Constitutional mandate, and that as President he is more powerful than either the Congress of the United States or the Supreme Court. He has unilaterally declared that the Defense of Marriage Act passed by the Congress is unconstitutional, and further declared that he will not have the Justice Department defend it against lawsuits.

His administration has also refused to enforce laws against voter intimidation and federal law that requires states to purge their voter registration lists of deceased individuals and those that are registered illegally. In addition, the Justice Department is refusing to allow states to enforce laws requiring proof of identity by voters at the polls. Obama has essentially said that he is the supreme ruler of the United States, and that the Congress and the Federal Judiciary are irrelevant.

10. It has been widely reported that acting through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms the Obama administration was involved for months in getting legitimate and law-abiding gun store owners along our southern border to supply weapons to straw buyers who the government knew would deliver them to the drug cartels in Mexico. This was billed as a sting operation against the cartels when in fact it was designed to produce fraudulent data showing that large numbers of weapons were going from the United States to the Mexican drug dealers.

This data was then to be used, and is being used, to try to justify new gun control regulations to limit the rights of American citizens to keep and bear arms. It has nothing to do with arresting members of the drug operations. The administration has, in effect, armed our enemies, and one border patrol agent has already been killed by one of these weapons. Now, Obama continues to impose gun control laws by Executive order so he will not have to deal with Congress. The administration is also refusing to cooperate with the committees in the House of Representatives that are investigating the entire operation. It is even defying Congressional subpoenas.

11. The President of the United States is not authorized by the Constitution to take our nation to war without the consent of the Congress of the United States. The only exception to this is the authority granted to the President by Congress under the War Powers Act. This law allows the President to take immediate action without the consent of Congress if there is an imminent threat to the security of the United States, or its citizens. Although there was clearly no such imminent threat caused by the Civil War in Libya, the President committed members of the United States military to combat missions in a foreign country without the consent of Congress. He based his authority on a United Nations resolution, and a resolution by the Arab League.

Now, the President has carried it one step further. During testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on March 7, 2012, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told Senators that the President has authority to take our country to war without the Congressional approval required by Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution. The administration is taking the position that it can ignore Congress as long as it has United Nations approval or NATO approval.

However, these actions may be the least of the worries facing the American people. The White House insisted that language be included in the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that gives the President sole authority to order the military to arrest and indefinite detain American citizens on U.S. soil if the President suspects them of terrorist ties. This was amazingly passed overwhelmingly by Congress. It appears to be another situation where few members read the bill before voting on it.

This was almost immediately followed by another unconstitutional executive order titled the National Defense Resources Preparation order. It is similar to orders signed by past Presidents, but this one includes language that appears to give Obama the authority to declare martial law in peacetime, and take over the allocation of everything from food and fuel to transportation and health care. This violates the Constitution in a number of different ways.

12. Last but not the least of my dirty dozen of impeachable offenses, is the fact that since taking office the President has used executive orders, laws pushed through Congress in the dark of night, and administrative actions by his departments to nationalize and control automobile manufacturers, banks, insurance companies, and portions of the healthcare industry. This is designed to take our country from a free enterprise economy to a socialist economy. There is absolutely no authority in the Constitution of the United States that allows the President to do this.
Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution provides as follows:

“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

I contend that among those high crimes and misdemeanors is the intentional violation of the oath of office administered to the President and all other federal officials. In fact, federal law at 5 U.S.C. 7311 specifically provides that violation of the oath of office includes advocating the overthrowing of our constitutional form of government. This is specifically declared a criminal offense in 18 U.S.C. 1918 and is punishable by both a fine and imprisonment.

In the 12 areas I mentioned in the paragraphs above I firmly believe that Obama, Eric Holder, and numerous other members of his administration have gone beyond just advocating the overthrow of our constitutional form of government. They are actually engaged in making it happen, and as a result should be impeached and convicted. There are also the emerging issues of corruption such as the Solyndra scandal caused by Obama using stimulus money to pay off campaign contributors.

Will there be an impeachment and conviction in the current Congress? Probably not, since it takes a two thirds vote in the House of Representatives to impeach, and a two thirds vote in the Senate to convict. With Harry Reid and the progressives still in control of the Senate, and many of them guilty of some of the same impeachable offenses, they will resist it.

However, we are the American people and we still have a right to control our government, and the people elected to represent us. Therefore, I am personally calling on the conservative members the House of Representatives to bring this action based on the grounds I have enumerated so that the American people can understand what is really at stake here. Then “we the people,” can make our voices heard.

Why I distrust, dislike, and am FLAT OUT AFRAID of the muslim religion...

These are about the muslim religion

And yes, I know that I did not capitalize muslim.

I have collected these from different Facebook postings.

And before you talk about what the Christians did back during the Crusades, remember this: muslims are still performing these vile acts and Christians are NOT.

 

mohammed WAS a pedophile!

And again, I know that I did not capitalize mohammed!

Why would anyone hold someone who rapes children high in esteem?

 Religion of Peace? I think not!



Why are muslims allowed to say we cannot talk about them, but they are allowed to threaten every other religion out there?



Burkas  should be banned form all areas of public access. Especially flying and other mass transit areas. I have the right to feel safe! 

No where in the quran does it say that a woman must wear a burka. This law was created by men to control women within this cult!

Veteran to Paul Ryan in viral letter: Liberal Democrats an enemy to America

December 27, 2013

After receiving a fundraising letter from Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., Chuck Wooten, a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant already upset over the budget deal that slashes cost-of-living raises for military retirees, fired off an open letter to the Wisconsin Republican telling him in no uncertain terms that he broke the trust of those who serve by aligning with liberal Democrats -- a group Wooten called "an enemy to the American people and our Nation," The Blaze reported Thursday.

“Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed,” Wooten said. “You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your ‘bipartisan’ budget just impacted. You and every Republican (both in the House and Senate) that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me.”

Wooten was just getting warmed up.

“You may not know us by name, but we’re the people, Congressman, who answered our Nation’s call, some of us at a very early age to willingly serve YOU and others LIKE YOU so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm,” he added.

Wooten reminded Ryan of the bravery displayed every day by his “brothers-in-arms” who have answered the call of duty, “without fail, without complaint.”

“And for that service, we were given absolute assurance our so-called retirement benefits would be protected by law. The very law you shattered in your zeal to impress your Democratic cohorts in your back room deal–with the enemy," he wrote.

"Yes, I said it," he added. "The liberal Democrats are an enemy to the American people and our Nation.”

"By climbing into their bed on this issue, you have confirmed you are absolutely no better than they and have proven it with your vote," he added.

“Your lack of judgment and eagerness to compromise on the backs of us who protected you is sickening,” he continued.

Wooten concluded by saying that neither Ryan nor other Republicans who supported the budget deal would see a penny of financial support from him.

“Remove me from your contact lists,” he demanded.

Wooten told The Blaze he was stunned by the “grand irony” of Ryan’s team asking for donations after crafting the so-called "grand deal" that cut retiree benefits.

“You’re picking my pocket and then you’re asking me for a handout,” he said.

Wooten made it clear he does not speak for the Air Force or the military in general, but shares the views held by many veterans who feel betrayed by Washington politicians. He also told The Blaze he did not anticipate the attention his letter has received.

In addition to cutting benefits for retired military personnel, the budget deal left in place an IRS credit for illegal immigrants.
