recent article published in the Oregonian titled, “Confusion hampered
search for Kims,” as well as Sheriff Dave Daniel’s response
that the reporter must have been “on something” has obviously
sent waves throughout the hierarchy of Oregon government and public.
Finally there will be needed scrutiny placed on the Josephine County
administration has endangered its citizens with their “F--- ‘em-like”
policy and sat idly watching their football games long enough. Thankfully
for the citizens of the county a new administration will be taking the
reins this month.
it comes too late for one family and many others who have been on the
wrong side of the Daniel/Anderson “A-team.”
New Year Wish
A different sort of prediction
the last several years I have tried my hand at predictions and I have
found that I am no seer - no foreteller of the could be. What can I
say, my "visions" aren't that solid. But hey, as far as I
know Nostradamus didn't get anything right while he was alive, so maybe
there's a chance my premonitions will yet come to pass, especially if
I were to rewrite them into a more interpretive form so people could
mold them to fit whatever happening they see fit. Until then I'm going
to stray from the A-typical fortune-telling and write out a wish for
this new year.
is my wish that the American people rise up and take back control of
their own government and judicial system.
do this we need firm education, not this watered-down interpretive "history"
we teach our youth. We need true reporting of fact, not a media based
on bias. We need justice in our society, not this corrupted system of
judicial misconduct and interpretive law. We need a leader whose view
isn't that of a party but of a better society based on the principles
of the Constitution not their own personal beliefs. We need to establish
our own culture and not kowtow to others who complain that they can't
understand our language. Yes, our language is English. Learn it, but
also hold onto your own identity and never forget your roots. It is
this that separates us from all other countries, our melting pot of
people. We need to do away with our two-party political system and instead
vote for the best person through educating ourselves on who that may
be. We need to reign in our judges who create law at whim and are beholden
to no one. They have to be made accountable for actions that unduly
harm others. We need to uphold our current laws and not create new ones
that give preferential status to any "class" of individual.
We need to protect ourselves and keep ILLEGAL immigration from happening.
We need to become the producers of old not the consumers we've become.
what do you say? Do wishes really come true?
Saddam is dead - Now what?
to Forbes Magazine Bill Gates is the richest man in the world with an
estimated wealth of 50 billion dollars, but there is one other whose
worth has been more, Saddam Hussein. With a pricetag of roughly 410.1
BILLION for two wars (thus far) and an incalculable cost in lives, Saddam
Hussein has been the most expensive person ever and I'm really wondering
if it has all been worth it just to satisfy the Bush family legacy of
doing away with this evil man.
we enter 2007 there is one less cruel dictator in the world. Saddam
is gone, strung-up like the villain he was. But it happened so anti-climatically,
at least for me, and now that Saddam is dead I wonder how adamant President
Bush will be in continuing his support for a free Iraq. I mean, he got
his man and in the days to come we will see what his new vision on Iraq
will be and it will be quite telling of his true nature.
I'm no anti-war protestor and I firmly believe in supporting the men
and women of our armed forces but our mission in Iraq has been problematic
from the beginning. With the foundation being built on doing away with
WMDs and then on freeing the people it seems as though we have succeeded,
at least in general terms.
now that Saddam is gone who will take his place as the most evil man
in the world? Perhaps that would fall back to Osama, but we can't find
him ... so who will it be and will we pursue this individual as vehemently
as we had Hussein? Who knows.
thing is for sure, I don't want to pay nearly a half trillion dollars
bringing whoever it is down and with less than 750 days in office, I'm
sure even Bush couldn't spend that much on a new manhunt. But I'm sure
