Immigrants & K-12 - Greensboro, NC

Sure, go ahead and do it, if you want to commit cultural suicide. You are REWARDING criminal activity, and undermining the Rule of Law which is the basis for any true "civilization ". Contrary to claims that opposing the education of illegals is heartless; No true benevolence is ever expressed at the expense of another. It is right to DEFRAUD the lawful American Citizen to reward the children of those who shown nothing but contempt for them and their laws?  (Jul 11, 2012 | post #4)

Greensboro man arrested in fatal hit & run

I knew this couple. I want to know: (a) Why did this Julio Romero-Garcia flee the scene only to be caught later by the police trying to buy parts to repair the damage to his vehicle? And (b) Was this "Perp" an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT? The arrest report says he had no Driver's License or ID of any kind. Was he running because he knew he was here ILLEGALLY on top of just having committed a Double Homicide? My heart-felt thanks to the police involved in this case, and my condolences to the Sayer Family.  (Jul 11, 2012 | post #1)

California Proposition 19: the Marijuana Legalization Ini...

Oh yeah, that's just what we need here in Kalifornia; legalized dope-smoking to further dumb-down the population! It's no wonder this State is in ruin!  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #2039)

Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage

Sodomy, a.k.a. "buggery ", now "homosexualit y" was universally condemned and outlawed in the Colonies before and after the revolutionary war: How then could anyone expect their to be any law on the books regarding "same-sex marriages"? Such a notion is ridiculous on the face of it. The Constitution mentions nothing of marriage, either heterosexual or otherwise. The Founding Fathers wisely deferred that to the purview of the Church. Marriage, they reasoned, being an ordinance of God should be officiated by the Clergy, and not the Politician. And so we observe the true meaning of "separation of church & state" for them; i.e. - Government should never stray where even "angels fear to tread". To propose the notion of two sodomites getting married at that time would have either landed you in the gallows, or a lunatic asylum. No Minister would ever have given sanction and blessing to such an inordinate union. Thus, to argue that gay marriages cannot and should not be prohibited because the Constitution nowhere prohibits it, is to "argue from silence"; and as in all other cases...this is a very "poor man's" argument indeed. Ironically, a better argument can be made for it's continued prohibition from that same silence since it can easily be attributed to the fact that sodomy was universally treated with such universal abhorrence few would dare to speak of it openly. No, silence on the part of the Framers speaks volumes AGAINST homosexual revisionism. In conclusion: Given the prevailing laws of the times which not only condemned homosexuality, but held it to be a capital crime; one should not be surprised that homosexual marriage didn't enter their remotest thoughts. As such, no-one can argue "original intent" in any credible fashion.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #22934)

The foundation of all military discipline is a MORAL one. From top to bottom every service member must acknowledge the moral right of their superiors to issue them orders. Yes, it has something to do with that ancient (some say "outdated ") notion that the "...powers that be, are ordained of God", and as such a subordinate is obey every LAWFUL order issued by these authorities. When any authority issues an order which is un-lawful; the subordinate has the right and duty to disobey. This understanding was at the core of the Prosecution's arguments in the Nuremberg trials; the Tokyo War Crimes trials; and the My Lai massacre trials. In all of these situations the Defense argued their clients were innocent of any criminal wrong-doing because they were "just following orders". Well that excuse did't wash then, and it still does not work. No, unless I am mistaken, service members are taught to use what is called "the Medina Test", which boils down to asking the question "Is this a LAWFUL order, or not?". And every service member is entitled to decline carrying out what they believe to be an un-lawful/immoral order. I should know... I've done it. Now we have the question before us as to whether or not the Commander-in-Chief can issue an order which not only contravenes over 235 years of military doctrine, but also seeks to supplant the prevailing moral standards and convictions of society as a whole, and the military in particular. It certainly does NOT reflect the will of the People whose moral standards would be affronted by this. Were I still in the service, I would consider any such order an un-lawful one, and in no-wise comply with it; and I am sure the same sentiment is prevalent today. Liberals have an ironic double-standard that becomes all too apparent on this issue. On the one-hand they rant, scream, and stamp their feet shouting "You can't legislate morality!", and yet here they are fully in favor of doing just that! They want to repeal a 200+ year old moral judgment against sodomy, still held by a majority of the public; and instead impose their own twisted morality which approves & accommodates it! Such duplicity makes most normal people ashamed... but not the immoral Left. Truth is: One cannot govern without a moral basis for it, which is precisely why the liberals in power now have governed so poorly. They have their own morality, and religiously seek to force it upon this Republic: This hypocrisy at its worst. There is no way that Mr. Obama, or any who support repealing DADT can make the argument that it would be in the better interests of the military or this Nation. As it did with the Persians, Greeks, and Romans: So too will it destroy military discipline, and unit cohesion. There will be such massive losses to recruitment & retention; they will have to reinstate the Draft just to make up for the losses. And it will be the duty of every patriotic, god-fearing American to oppose such a draft, and help others to evade it. You thought "draft-dodgin g" was bad during 'Nam? Just wait until you try to tell millions of normal Parents that their children will be FORCED to serve alongside openly practicing homosexuals! Our military courts will stagger under the case loads which will follow, and our military jails will fill-up with conscientious objectors to a thing which yesterday would have been a crime worthy of dismissal in disgrace. None of this can be said to be in the "best interests" of our Nation...but the flagrant homosexual could care less; and such an attitude can hardly be called "patriotic ". You cannot simply command a person to subordinate themselves to any person whose personal life is so marked by INSUBORDINATION to the laws of nature, and nature's God. Such a person is unworthy of that respect so essential to military order & discipline, and they know it. These things alone should be reason enough to forever silence the debate.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #22918)

I'm still waiting for someone favoring the repeal of DADT to present any kind of logically intelligent argument to bolster their position. So far, all I have read is irrational, and a lot of name-calling rhetoric. Is that the best you people can do? If so, I'll not dignify your remarks with a reply. Homosexuality will forever stand as a heinous moral crime against nature, man, and God; and all of your shrill objections will never change it.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #22913)

Incidents related to this will fill-up the Court Martial dockets, and the good men & women will be dishonorably discharged for doing nothing more than refusing to tolerate and accomodate such deviate behavior. But then again, since when did doing what was truly in the best interest of the majority concern the Left?  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #22866)

Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage

It was once classified a "most heinous crime against nature" and considered too shameful to speak of openly. What was then variously known as "sodomy" , "buggery ", and "infamous uncleanness"; has now received official sanction. Our Nation's first Commander-in-Chief found it to be such a "notorious threat" to good military discipline and order, that he approved the Court Martial findings against one Lt. Enslin, who had attempted to perpetrate acts of sodomy upon a subordinate, stating..."Hi s Excellency the Commander in Chief APPROVES the sentence and with ABHORRENCE and DETESTATION of such INFAMOUS CRIMES orders Lieutt. Enslin to be drummed out of camp tomorrow morning by all the drummers and fifers in the Army never to return." Keep in mind that this was 1778, a time when our fledgling Nation could ill-afford to lose a single man, especially an officer for any light cause; yet General Washington counted the threat of having such a person in the uniformed ranks so great, that despite their desperate need, he dispatched this man in disgrace. To be "drummed out" was an extreme dishonor...no pension...no rank...no "seps pay". Mr. Enslin was never heard from again. Consider then today's ruling: We have a Commander-in-Chief who never suffered the rigors of military life as Washington had, let alone knows anything about the importance of "military order & discipline", and yet, who in his "wisdom" wants to elevate the status of homosexuals in our Armed Forces! Instead of believing it a thing too shameful to be talked about, he wants the "buggers " and "sodomites " of yesterday’s infamy to have the freedom to shout it from the highest echelons with pride! And for those traditional American fighting men who don't like it? Why it is THEY who shall now be "drummed out" of our armed forces in disgrace! What a "coup", eh? We've come a long way, America: Unfortunately it seems to have been DOWN-HILL.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #22851)

I agree. Had an incident on ship on time where a Navy "bugger" was trying to put the make on me while I was working-out. I simply smiled and told him with a deliberate lisp, "Sorry Matey, but I've known from an early age that I am a Lesbian trapped in a man's body." He left me alone after that!hehehe  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #22268)

Congratulations, sodomites! The Taliban, Al Quaeda, and the rest of America's enemies could not have struck a more demoralizing and divisive blow to the heart of our Armed Forces. Ah, but you have gotten YOUR way, and that's all that matters isn't it? Well, "celebrate " it while you can: There's a tidal wave coming, and you will not stand.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #22265)

(continued) 5) Our military forces on the ground engaged in hostilities abroad will be further demoralized by this ruling. The majority of those young folks do NOT share the twisted values of this Judge, the Obama administration, or of the homosexual activists who have brought this suit. They're good kids, and aside from the usual faults we all share; they're STRAIGHT. Even so, they are probably all-too aware of those members in their Units who are homosexual, and unless it be MADE an issue; are willing to just ignore it. Now, they can't ignore it! Now it will be shoved in their faces! And now, they will be forced into an unreasonable corner having to choose between accepting & embracing it, or leaving the Armed Forces they otherwise were proud to serve in. And the latter choice will NOT be made easy for them, you can bet on that. 6) Should this policy shift be allowed, military discipline & order will be sorely tested. Many service members who have up ‘til now had sterling service records will no doubt find themselves facing charges before a Court Martial, and being drummed out of their beloved military on less than honorable grounds. In many cases, I predict, you can expect violence will be involved. This is NOT the kind of "Hope & Change" America needs!  (Oct 12, 2010 | post #22240)

This is yet another TRAGIC example of political activism from the bench which will come back to hurt us all. One can only imagine what “rigorous” defense the Obama controlled DOJ made on behalf of “DADT”; remember the Black Panthers case? Had a Veteran been there, he would have argued… 1) There is NO precedent in America’s military history allowing for and tolerating the practice of homosexuality; it has in fact always been a crime of the highest order. “Don’t Ask - Don’t tell” was a compromise solution which basically said, “We won’t come looking for you, just don’t make it apparent you are there.” It was an unhappy compromise from the start, for as many warned; it would only prove to be the proverbial “crack in the dam” that would soon erode into a full-blown flood. And so it is today. As for being “UN-Constitutional ”: There is NO Constitutional allowance to have sexual deviants serving in our military. Such a notion has been created out of “whole clothe”, as they say. 2) Members of the Armed Forces are governed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which itself is based upon the former “Articles of War”we adopted from the British; and NOT the US Constitution per se, and for good reason. In the Articles of War, it is plainly stated “If any person in the fleet shall commit the unnatural and detestable sin of buggery and sodomy with man or beast, he shall be punished with death by the sentence of a court martial.” It is CONGRESS, working with the Joint Chiefs who decides what is and is not appropriate military conduct, and not some rogue activist acting under color of authority! 3) In overturning the "Don't ask - Don't tell" policy; this judge has thwarted the only truly workable compromise solution the Armed Forces have had which ensures conformity to military discipline, while protecting/respect ing the deeply held sentiments of two very adverse groups, both of whom wish to serve their Country. In so doing, she has now set the stage for discord and violence among our service members...and should be held accountable for the results. 4) This ruling will have a deleterious effect on military recruiting. Most young people, having a normal sexual orientation will NOT want to be forced to serve in an environment where openly homosexual members are likely to be their "bunk-mates ", room-mates, or showering partners. And NONE would want to be placed into immediate subordination to a homosexual he may have "designs " on them! Facing such onerous prospects, most "straight " kids will defer from joining our Armed Forces, and find another career path where their own rights and morés are respected/protecte d. 5) This ruling will effectively KILL the all-volunteer Military, and the mandatory DRAFT will soon be reinstated: Bank on it. As I've stated previously: The majority of normal young folk who rightly disdain homosexuality will find any other career path but that which involves them being FORCED to serve alongside an "openly (flamingly) gay" individual. And should such a draft be imposed, it will raise such an outcry in this Nation from every quarter, especially from its Veterans, that imposing it will lead to open civil disobedience, and "draft-dodgin g" will once again become "fashionable ", albeit for a much better cause. I am an honorably discharged, decorated Marine Corps Veteran; and I tell you now: Attempt to draft my son into such a hellish scenario, and I will help him evade it!  (Oct 12, 2010 | post #22239)
