Our Sovereignty Is On The Line !!!

Sovereignty: 1. the state or quality of being sovereign. 2. the status, dominion, rule, or authority of a sovereign. 3. supreme and independent political authority: as, state sovereignty. 4. a sovereign state or governmental unit.

Okay, so why am I laboring on the definition of sovereignty? Simple answer: So we will all know what it means when we no longer have it. Or, so we will all remember what it meant back when we used to have it.

Golly-gee Doug, is it gone? Has someone actually taken our sovereignty away from us when we weren't looking? Who would do such a thing? Are you one of those alarmist-type people? Is the sky falling? It's all just a big joke, right?

Wrong! It is not just a big joke, and no, I am not one of those alarmist-type people. Our sovereignty is still intact, but unless somebody out there does something real smart and real quick it is going to be hanging by a thread very soon. This country of ours is in serious doo-doo, folks, AND it is OUR government, AND specifically OUR President that are selling us out!

There is a very well kept secret in the works called the North American Union. In a March, 2005 meeting in Waco, Texas, held at Baylor University, President Bush (our guy), then-President Fox (Mexico) and Prime Minister Martin (Canada) entered into an agreement to form the North American Union and develop a super-regional political and economic entity designed to establish a "tri-lateral partnership".

The ramifications are quite stunning:

1) A North American security plan, designed to allegedly protect North America from external threats and streamline the 'secure and efficient' movement of legitimate, low-risk traffic across our borders. Not their borders, our borders. We will have little or no control as to who comes into our country, or where they came from originally.

2) Establishment of a North American Advisory Council, composed of fifteen individuals, five from each country. They will create an agenda that will give them power to implement programs possibly contrary to the best interests of the United States.

3) The creation of a Permanent Tribunal on Trade and Investment that would, in matters involving the North American Union, have supremacy over our Supreme Court.

4) The creation of a North American Parliamentary Group that would take precedent over Congress in matters relating to the North American Union.

5) The creation of a North American Customs and Immigration Service which would have authority over U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement within the Department of Homeland Security.

6) Establishment of a new currency called the Amero, which will replace the U.S. Dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexican peso.

Is it any wonder why our politicians in Washington (including President Bush) are in no hurry to close our borders? Is it any wonder that this is not the top news story in the liberal elite media? Is it any wonder our fine country is on the verge of going into the dumper?

We, as people of a free nation, need to get vocal. We need to send a strong message to Washington that we are through with them, Republicans and Democrates alike. We need to rid this country of the power-mongers who are so intent on taking us down. We need to stop this madness NOW!

Our sovereignty is on the line!

Keep Those Cards And Letters Coming In !!!

April 19, 2007: The war in Iraq is over. "We have lost". This, according to Harry Reid, whom I thought was supposed to be on our side. Wrong again! Ol' Harry isn't necessarily against The United States of America, which anyone with even a small amount of intelligence might think after listening to him for any length of time. It's just that he is so much against George W. Bush that he sounds like he is an enemy of our country. There is no way anyone can remain objective about anything when they harbor the kind of hatred the far left-wingers have for George W. Bush.

There is no doubt that things are going poorly in Iraq. There is no doubt we need to re-think strategy there. Even the Bush-ites will acknowledge this. But surrender? We have lost?
What an absolutely stupid, un-American thing to say. We may have lost our patriotism. We may have lost our will. We may have lost our leadership in Congress. We may have lost the war in Washington, but we haven't lost the war in Iraq. And, I don't think that Harry Reid has the authority to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, anyway. I think Nancy Pelosi feels like that should be her job. What a pair! It is exactly this mind-set that cost us the war in Vietnam, and now, here we go again. When will we ever learn?

I have said this in the past in total jest, but now I'm not so sure it isn't a fine idea afterall: People should be required to pass a test in order to vote. Not an intelligence test, but a test that would reveal a voter's awareness and knowledge of current political events, and the ramifications their un-informed vote could create simply because they are clue-less. Actually, I still say this in total jest...but it just might keep people like Reid and Pelosi from taking down our country. Hmmm...

Keep those cards and letters coming in!

Can You Say Hypocrite ???

Can you say hypocrite? The Duke University lacrosse team mates were finally exonerated recently after more than a year of wrongful prosecution by a power hungry, politically driven, local attorney general (Mike Nifong) who, for his own personal reasons, chose to ruin the lives of these young men for his own gain. The accusations against them were false from the start, without merit, and evidence developed during the investigation that proved their innocence. DNA is pretty conclusive, as I understand it. Still, he proceeded with his agenda of destruction until he had backed himself into a corner he could not escape from, then simply walked away. This is just SO wrong.

Mike Nifong deserves to be dis-barred, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for what he did.

And, don't forget about good ol' Jesse Jackson, among others, who is always at the center of the problem, but never the solution. When these young men were arrested, he already had them charged, convicted and sentenced. So where is he now? I hope no one is naive enough to think he would actually apologize for his actions. That just not his style. Can you say hypocrite?

Don Imus made a stupid, ugly, racist remark last week on his radio show about the Rutgers University ladies basketball team. It was completely in-defensible. But that is what Imus is all about. Or is it?

CBS Radio and MSNBC have now decided to cancel his radio show, succumbing to pressure from sponsors, and people like Jesse Jackson (again) and Al Sharpton, two professional racists in their own right. We all remember, I'm sure, Mr. Jackson's reference to New York City as "Hymie Town". So this is really nothing more than business as usual. Left wing hypocrisy at its best. Sorry, I digress.....

Should Mr. Imus be punished for his remarks? No doubt. Should he have been fired? Probably not. Every person on God's green earth has two sides. Like it or not, we are all human beings in a fallen world. We are not perfect.

I would submit that we all have two lists that chronicle our 'human-ness': A good list and a bad list. Hopefully, and by the grace of God, our good list is much longer than our bad list. I would like to think that Mr. Imus has a good list that is much longer than his bad list, but that wouldn't seem to matter to the hypocrites that took him down. And, if I remember Scripture correctly, it is not our place to make judgements.

I would suspect, purely based on certain things that Mr. Imus has done with his life, that his good list, like most of us, is much, much longer than his bad list. I believe this fact would, and should, have a positive bearing on his future. As Joe South said in his song, "Walk a mile in my shoes". Time will tell.

I do have an idea, however, that probably won't work: Air America, the left wing radio outfit, is bankrupt both financially and in message. They need a huge change in direction and editorial content to become profitable and survive, unless George Soros continues to write a check every month to keep them on the air.

Don Imus needs a job. He could actually be the man to pull them out of their dilemma and turn things around. He has the experience. He has a built in following. All the hypocritical politicians that used to beg for time on his show, and then turned on him, would have a great new venue. He needs a second chance, and they need all the help they can get. It's a natural fit!

If anyone out there believes this could actually happen, please contact me at once. I have some ocean front property in Cannon County I want to talk to you about.

Random Rants !!!

Fifteen British Sailors and Marines taken captive in Iraqi waters by Iranians. Sound familiar? I think I'm suffering from amnesia and de javu at the same time! The sad thing is they asked their people in command if they should, or could, defend themselves when they saw the Iranian boat approaching, and were told not to defend themselves. Don't make waves, so to speak. Another classic example of political correctness at its best! I am sincerely trying not to be ugly about this, but I'm sorry, I just don't get it. Perhaps we should all be thankful that Jimmy Carter is not the Prime Minister of England!

In the 1960's, the mantra from the left was, "I am tired of your materialism, and I want something for the soul". In the 2000's, the mantra is, "I am still tired of your materialism, and I want to destroy your soul". I honestly don't think it will matter what their mantra will be in another forty years, because our country, as we know it, will probably no longer exist. Our society can not, and will not, survive if the secular progressives continue to gain inroads into our lives and our mindsets. Does anyone out there have an answer? The only answer I have involves getting back in touch with our God and our Christian heritage, and that seems to be getting increasingly more difficult to do.

Why have we heard so little about the free trade corridor that is allegedly being built to connect Mexico to Canada? As I understand it, it will run from Texas, north to the Canadian border. I have heard it will be constructed with Mexican labor, making it even more impossible to track illegals. Also, there is serious talk of a new North American monetary system, similar to the Euro, that will replace our American currency, combining the U.S. dollar, the peso and the Canadian dollar. If this should happen, it will further de-value our dollar in the world market place. Why is our government keeping this quiet? Why are they so willing to destroy our sovereignty? Why are we sitting on our hands, doing nothing?
