The Alien In The White House

From the Wall Street Journal...h/t: Prof. Jacobson @ legalinsurrection.com.blogspot.com
A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.
The light at the end of the dark tunnel is...this and 'November is coming...'

Listen up, POTUS44

My beloved Stealth, phantom president is ordering you...
Mr. President: with all due respect, you have to get involved, sir. The priorities and timeline of an oil company are not the same as the public’s. You cannot outsource the cleanup and the responsibility and the trust to BP and expect that the legitimate interests of Americans adversely affected by this spill will somehow be met.
Boom! taste my nightstick!
My beloved Stealth, phantom president is showing you POTUS44 what to do! How to be a competent CEO of the United States of America...
Please, sir, for the sake of the Gulf residents, reach out to experts who have experience holding oil companies accountable. I suggested a few weeks ago that you start with Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources, led by Commissioner Tom Irwin. Having worked with Tom and his DNR and AGIA team led by Marty Rutherford, I can vouch for their integrity and expertise in dealing with Big Oil and overseeing its developments. We’ve all lived and worked through the Exxon-Valdez spill. They can help you. Give them a call.
I order you, POTUS44, call my beloved Stealth, phantom president. Ask Anita Dunn what happen to Republican and Democrat governors who ignore and misunderestimated Sarah Palin. Ask Tina Fey how gracious she is even to critics.
Or, what the heck, give me a call.
Sarah Palin has IT, POTUS44, you don't. What is IT?
Wisdom! Wisdom! Wisdom!
And, finally, Mr. President, please do not punish the American public with any new energy tax in response to this tragedy. Just because BP and federal regulators screwed up that doesn’t mean the rest of us should get punished with higher taxes at the pump and attached to everything petroleum products touch.
- Sarah Palin

No more Drilling...

we are very screwed...
From Investors Daily: The Drill Is Gone
Suspicions in some quarters that the administration was being deliberately lax in its response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in order to pursue a larger, anti-domestic energy agenda were met with derision. But if not deliberate, the effect is the same as the administration prepares to shut down our search for new oil.

Principle of Subsidiarity

Catholic as catholic can be...
One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet holds that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization.

1894 midterm election

From Wiki...
U.S. House election, 1894 was a realigning election—a major Republican landslide that set the stage for the decisive Election of 1896. The elections of members of the United States House of Representatives in 1894 came in the middle of President Grover Cleveland's second term. The nation was in its deepest economic depression ever following the Panic of 1893, so economic issues were at the forefront. In the spring, a major coal strike damaged the economy of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. It was accompanied by violence; the miners lost and many moved toward the Populist party. Immediately after the coal strike concluded, Eugene V. Debs led a nationwide railroad strike, called the Pullman Strike. It shut down the nation's transportation system west of Detroit for weeks, until President Cleveland's use of federal troops ended the strike. Debs went to prison (for disobeying a court order). Illinois' Governor John Peter Altgeld, a Democrat, broke bitterly with Cleveland. The fragmented and disoriented Democratic Party was crushed everywhere outside the South, losing more than half its seats to the Republican Party. Even in the South, the Democrats lost seats to Republican-Populist electoral fusion in Alabama, Texas, Tennessee, and North Carolina.[1][2] The Democrats lost 125 seats in the election while the Republicans won 130 seats. This makes the 1894 election the largest midterm election victory in the entire history of the United States.
Praying that this coming 2010 midterm election will mirror 1894! President Grover Cleveland was a Democrat too. 1896 presidential election of President McKinley is significant to the Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico.

Dollar to Phpeso, LLC's end of the line...!

'if you're in a hole, stop digging!'...
The Independent Review/Auditor came on Monday. At the end of the two hour audit, my mind was made up. There is no end in sight for my business. USA Patriot Act was renewed this year by with nary any revision in regards to foreign money remitters. The new governor of the state of New Jersey have other priorities to balance the budget and reduce the billion dollars deficit to have the energy to reduce state regulations. My customer base is stagnant! I had not one new client the whole year of 2009 and my regular client's remittance amount are at it's lowest ever.

I pick up Kk at daycare after the audit.
On my way home on the NJ Turnpike north is a billboard that says 'After you die, you see God' Rev. 1:7.
The complete scripture on NAB:
Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and very eye will see him, even those who pierced him. All the people of the earth will lament him. Yes. Amen. [Revelation 1:7]
I thought of my beloved sister, C'yoy. For the first time since she left, my dam broke. On my iphone music blaring was the Beatles song 'When I'm Sixty-Four'. I'll be 64 in July. She would have been 62 a day before my 64th. She left at about the same age as our mother at 61 in 1983.
I have no more energy, patience and funds for all the Federal and New Jersey State compliance requirement to maintain a Foreign Money Remitter license.
The dissolution of the business is effective when the payment and all documentation are received by New Jersey Division of Revenue.
I run this business more years than most of my nursing jobs. The only nursing job I work longer was at University Hospital, Neuro-surgical Intensive Care Unit. DtP outlasted Wachovia, First National Bank brand and the CEO of BoA.

from Vatican tweet...

Pope Benedict XVl in Malta...
The world needs this witness! In the face of so many threats to the sacredness of human life, and to the dignity of marriage and the family, do not our contemporaries need to be constantly reminded of the grandeur of our dignity as God’s children and the sublime vocation we have received in Christ? Does not society need to reappropriate and defend those fundamental moral truths which remain the foundation of authentic freedom and genuine progress?

I can't believe the way we carry on. are we wrong? Ev'rybody all over the world, We've got to get along. If we don't get together, we'll be gone. Talking 'bout freedom for you and me. Freedom for the world. I said freedom for you and me. Freedom for the world. Got to have freedom for you and me. Freedom for the world. Look at tomorrow Think of the sorrow. Think of the price we'll pay. Look to your heart. And love will lead the way. People are praying. People are saying. How long can this go on. It just isn't right. To fight for the right to belong. Ev'rybody all over the world. Raise your voices in song. If we don't get together, we'll be gone. Talking 'bout freedom for you and me. Freedom for the world. We need freedom. Freedom for you and me.

kids, adult kids today, don't want dirty hands, hence...

This article reminds me a remark my bff's son implied: 'went to college so as not to dirty hands working in the shop'. Smart kid with leftist views.
Mind you, 'shop' is a machinist factory started from scratch by his enterprising late grandfather, presently run by his uncle as well as his father. His late grandfather and recently deceased grandmother, I greatly admire as Great Americans - entrepreneurs, generous and accepting of people of all race and creed. May both rest in peace and in the bosom of the Lord's kingdom!

Rep Paul Ryan, (WY) Must see & must listen!

US Congressman from Wisconsin, Paul Ryan's speech on the House.
Transcript:
We know the problems of its cost and we know it doesn't reduce the deficit and premiums will go up. The C.B.O. has given us this information and the bill is chock full of gimmicks and mandates. I'm not going to get into all that again, but I ask, why has this decision become so personal to our constituents? Why are so many people swarming the Capitol today? Why have we received 100,000 calls an hour from around the country?
It's because health care affects every one of us, and yet here we're debating whether the government should have a bigger role in making those personal decisions. So, make no mistake about it. We are not just here to pass a health care bill. We are being asked to make a choice about the future path of this country.
Mr. Speaker, the speakers to my left are correct, this is history. This is a major turning point. This is not a debate about prices, coverage or choosing doctors. This is ultimately about what kind of country we are going to be in the 21st century. America is not just a nationality. It's not just a massive land from Hawaii to Maine from Wisconsin to Florida. America is an idea. It's the most pro-human idea ever designed by mankind. Our founders got it right when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights come from nation and nature's God, not from government. Should we now subscribe to an ideology where government creates rights and solely responsible for delivering these artificial rights and then rations these rights? Do we believe that the goal of government is to promote equal opportunity for all Americans to make the most of their lives or do we now believe that government's role is to equalize the results of people's lives?
The philosophy advanced on this floor by this majority today is some arrogant, it's condescending and it tramples upon the principles that have made America so exceptional.
My friends, we are fast approaching a tipping point where more Americans depend upon the Federal government than upon themselves for their livelihood, a point where we, the American people, trade in our commitment and our concern for our individual liberties in exchange for government benefits and dependencies. More to the point, Madam Speaker, we have seen this movie before and we know how it ends. The European social welfare state promoted by this legislation is not sustainable. This is not who we are and it is not who we should become. As we march towards this tipping point of dependency, we are also accelerating towards a debt crisis, as a result of politicians of the past making proposal myths we simply cannot afford to keep. Deja vu all over again. It is unconscionable what we are leaving the next generation. This moment may mark a temporary conclusion of the health care debate, but its place in history has not yet been decided. If this passes, the quest to reclaim the American idea is not over. The fight to reapply our founding principles is not finished. It is just a steeper hill to climb, and it is a climb that we will make. On this issue, more than any other issue we have ever seen here, the American people are engaged, from our town hall meetings to Scott Brown's victory in Massachusett, you have made your voices heard and some of us are listening to you. My colleagues, let's bring down this bill and bring back the idea that made this country great.

Money Laundering Laws Force Banks to Spy on Us, But They Are Ineffective Against Crime

by Dan Mitchell
The University of Basel’s Institute of Governance recently published a map showing the nations most linked to dirty money. What made the map interesting is that only one of the 28 nations listed was a so-called tax haven, thus exposing the left-wing lie that low-tax jurisdictions are somehow hotbeds of dirty money.
A more fundamental question is whether anti-money laundering laws are an effective way of fighting crime. The evidence is not encouraging. The system costs billions of dollars each year. Banks are forced to set up expensive monitoring systems to snoop on their customers. They are then required to send reports to the government for all large or unusual transactions. Theoretically, these reports are supposed to alert law enforcement to patterns of criminal activity, but since banks are compelled to send millions of reports every year, it is impossible to sift through haystacks of data to find needles of criminal activity. This is why conservatives, such as a former Reagan Justice Department official John Yoder, think the laws do more harm than good. This six-minute video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity explains why the time has come for politicians to reconsider the current approach.
