Dear Senator Harkin,
As a native Iowan and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue Service, I am writing to ask for your assistance. I have contacted the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to determine the process for becoming an illegal alien and they referred me to you.
My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to illegal alien stems from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and for which you voted. If my understanding of this bill is accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five years, all I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and income taxes for only three of the last five years. I know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the process started before everyone figures it out.
Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes every year so I'm excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is there any way that I can apply to be illegal retroactively? This would yield an excellent result for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2008 and 2009.
Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local emergency room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped paying premiums for medical insurance, my accountant figures I could save almost $10,000 a year.
Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my daughter would receive preferential treatment relative to her law school applications, as well as 'in-state' tuition rates for many colleges throughout the United States for my son.
Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden of renewing my driver's license and making those burdensome car insurance premiums. This is very important to me, given that I still have college age children driving my car.
If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal (retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for your assistance

Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece?/ http://tinyurl.com/4wh5zt
Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.
Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.
Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

Americans are like ignorant frogs swimming in a pot of water that is about to boil over.
We are losing our rights and everyone is arguing about the Guns, the Gays, the Abortion, the Birth Certificate.
Restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press; on the rights of assembly and associations; and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications and warrants for house searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions of property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.,
The tone is familiar. Is it Clinton’s Anti-Terrorism Act of 1996?
Is it the Bush Patriot Act of 2001?
No. It is from Hitler’s 1933 speech calling for an Enabling Act for the protection of the People and the State after the catastrophic Reichstag fire that the Nazis had secretly lit.
Bush challenges hundreds of laws / President cites powers of his office

WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.
Among the laws Bush said he can ignore are military rules and regulations, affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about immigration services problems,''whistle-blower " protections for nuclear regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally funded research.

Libby Judge "Perplexed" by Clemency
Libby judge 'perplexed' by clemency
His 30-month sentence was appropriate for the former Cheney aide, he writes in his first public comments on the issue.
July 13, 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/3ds8xvn
WASHINGTON — In an unusual expression of frustration, the judge who sentenced former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby to 30 months in jail, only to see the sentence commuted by President Bush, said he was "perplexed" by the act of clemency.
In his first public comments on the matter, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton took issue with Bush's statement that the prison sentence ordered for Libby last month was "excessive." Walton defended the sentence, saying that he followed established legal precedents as well as a strict interpretation of federal sentencing guidelines that has been supported by Bush's own administration.

Right now best estimate is bottleneck of ~10,000 ca ., 70,000 years ago. With at least one allele having most recent common ancestor (MRCA) at 60,000 years ago that leaves both Adam and Noah out of contention for extreme bottleneck patriarch status.
Sorry, no Adam no Noah.

Oh, there was another "B-40" but is was actually a P-40 rigged to carry a 1,000 pound bomb. They were used in Burma! I met a guy who flew P-40s, P-47s and P-38s in India and did B-29 escort missions in P-38s from China to Japan.
Oh, tonight I had diner with a WWII Navy pilot. Like many of the best student pilots of each class, he was retained as an Instructor pilot and never made it into combat.
The comedian George Gobel did the same in the AAF. Pick up the video at 6:55.

Still, it is not a crime for a politician to lie! Now, what was Libby tried for? Lying to a law enforcement officer who was investigating a crime which is the same as ..... perjury!!!
When a law enforcement officer asks you a question you can tell the truth, lie to him (a crime) or plead the 5th! Libby could have plead the 5th and he never would have been tried.
Oh, you do know Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson sued Libby, don't you? What happened to that lawsuit?
You do know that Linda Tripped sued DoD, don't you? And what happened there?!?

Sooo, we are never right about anything..... ever??? There is a lot I disagreed with Bush on and a lot of things I think Clinton did right. I have even called the White House comment line three or four times in recent years to tell Pres. Obama has done something I agree with.
But to you Libtards, we Conservatives are wrong 100% of the time. And all that does is make you a flaming ignorant bigot!

FBI director admits domestic use of drones
The FBI uses drones for domestic surveillance purposes, the head of the agency told Congress early Wednesday.
Robert Mueller, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, confirmed to lawmakers that the FBI owns several unmanned aerial vehicles, but has not adopted any strict policies or guidelines yet to govern the use of the controversial aircraft.
“Does the FBI use drones for surveillance on US soil?” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) asked Mr. Mueller during an oversight hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Yes,” Mueller responded bluntly, adding that the FBI’s operation of drones is “very seldom.”
Mueller said 22 agents have access to a vast surveillance database, including 20 analysts and two overseers.
These Guidelines are issued under the authority of the Attorney General as provided in
sections 509,510,533, and 534 of title 28, United States Code, and Executive Order 12333.
They apply to domestic investigative activities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and
other activities as provided herein.
