If you support our national security issues, you may love and appreciate the United States of America, our Constitution with its’ freedoms, and our American flag.
If you support and practice our fiscal issues, you may value worldly possessions.
If you support and value our social issues, you may love Judeo-Christian values.
If you support and practice all these values, that is all good; an insignia of “Wisdom” . - Oscar Y. Harward

How about the proposed $1 billion spending for Amtrak, which hasn’t earned a profit in four decades, $335 million for treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, $4.19 billion open to ACORN? Is this the same ACORN who illegally registered voters? How about the $150 billion in new federal spending, doubling the Department of Education's current budget? How about funding a check for ‘illegal immigrants’?
For a genuine solution, Capitol Hill legislators should employ Federal Investigators, to examine and prosecute those improper and/or illegal activities in the SEC, banking businesses, insurance industries, Wall Street, and yes, on Capitol Hill who are responsible for this financial disaster. I propose Capitol Hill legislators pass additional funds for an authentic ‘Stimulus’ by building jails to house these arrogant, financial, thieving, and self-serving hoodlums.
Legislation passed by the House and headed for the Senate, is nothing more or less than a fraud. Using the word ‘Stimulus’ to describe this legislation is a misuse of the English language. This ‘Stimulus’ is described to build roads, etc. As presented by this legislation, it represents some 90% or more of pure pork and/or a social program, rather than a ‘Stimulus’. This Current ‘Stimulus’ is a fraud.
For America’s economy to survive, Americans must eliminate our own self-greed, to quit holding out our open hands for requite, and start looking out for our future generations. They deserve a chance!

America, after over 232 years, remains free as our elected US Executives (Presidents), Legislators (Senate and Congress), and/or Judiciary (US Supreme Court, Courts of Appeal, & District Courts) have always provided required resources to maintain a strong US Military as defined by our US Constitution. Our history will establish some administrations, from time to time, have lowered the top quality and personnel quantity of necessities to maintain the very best as money could provide and purchase for our armed forces.
President Obama promised in his campaign, and now is following up by action, to close Guantanamo Bay (GITMO). His position statement is to stop torture. Torture is denied as happening at GITMO. The International Red Cross is on premises to observe all. To suggest this as a claim is merely a folly, just to justify other actions. When we talk about terrorist combatants, we are not talking about soldiers in uniform, representing another government. We are dealing with a group of organized terrorists who are out to destroy freedoms operating within any free civilized society. Where will President Obama send these terrorist combatants? Where and when will President Obama allow these terrorist combatants to be freed to operate in our world, be jailed elsewhere, and/or be tried in our US Courts and/or Military Courts? Guantanamo Bay now houses some 250 terrorist combatants. One US Federal Judge, and in a 5 to 4 vote, the US Supreme Court has ruled GITMO detainees at the Guantanamo Bay facility in Cuba has habeas corpus rights, and can thus challenge the lawfulness of their detention. How many legislators on Capitol Hill will refuse to support our US Military for capturing these terrorist combatants? Capitol Hill legislators should pass legislation denying worldwide terrorist combatants rights under US law, allowing our US Military leaders to resolve this problem at their will?
President Obama may be the first Executive in the White House who may danger our freedoms as he chooses to downgrade our military and danger our armed forces in numbers, as well as in superior equipment. President Obama has promised to reduce our US Military expenditures.
Upon release, where will the GITMO terrorists go? I have a suggestion for President Obama, each of the 5 on SCOTUS who support habeas corpus rights, all members on Capitol Hill who support terrorists’ habeas corpus rights, and any others who wish to support habeas corpus rights to all international terrorists. Each of these terrorist supporters should open their own personal homes for terrorists and allow each to live in each of their own homes; in their own bedrooms. In the event the 250 terrorist combatants or so are too many, each of these supporting believers of terror should be willing to double-up until all these combatants are comfortably stress-free. To protect their own neighbors, each should build a fence around their property as to maintain each, including themselves, inside.
What has happened to old English Common Law which was founded in England under William the Conqueror, who combined some of the Anglo-Saxon Law with Norman Law? English Common Law was by custom and precedent, rather than by so much more written law. America was founded under English Common Law. English Common Law is Common Sense Law. Over the years, Americans’ elected legislators have “lawyerized” our judicial system, swaying away from English Common Sense Law. Common Sense Law would not release these terrorist combatants. Common Sense Law would keep these terrorists in a prison forever. Some GITMO terrorist combatants have already been released by Judges; only to rejoin Al-Qaeda, fighting members of militaries of free nations. Random International terrorist combatants should not have equal civil rights under US law!
Members of our US Military should not be sent to kill or capture terrorists, only to be forced to face those captured in any courtroom. This activity is destroying our US Military and our individual freedoms. America must maintain a strong military to keep America free. The world is counting on us.
God Bless America!

Are US Senators going to support or reject President Obama’s nominee, Timothy Geithner, for US Secretary of Treasurer? I would bet you will see a majority Democrat Senators and at least one of the two Independents supporting Geithner, saying Geithner’s failure to pay his taxes was just a mistake. This crime of failing to pay his taxes for some six years was a determinate decision, not just a mistake. I would bet you will see most Republican Senators reject Geithner for this same reason and others. Everyone who fails to pay his or her income taxes could say it was a mistake; most criminals who admit their other crimes usually say it was a mistake. If a majority of our US Senators are going to confirm Timothy Geithner, why should any taxpayer be forced to pay his or her income taxes as legislated by all on Capitol Hill, and signed by our President? I believe American taxpayers will not pleasantly accept the confirmation of Timothy Geithner. President Obama made a poor choice in nominating a six year (?) tax cheat, who paid up on his past taxes, only just before being nominated. It is for these reasons why Timothy Geithner should be rejected as our Secretary of the Treasurer. If a majority of our US Senators support Timothy Geithner, why should any other taxpayer be forced to pay their taxes on time? Who of our US Senators will place Geithner in charge of the IRS, which he cheated on himself? Otherwise, all Americans will see President Obama and other elected majority Democrats on Capitol Hill accepting a tax cheat as another expanded qualification to serve for public office in this administration. President Obama and the Democrat Party must be more responsible to Americas’ taxpayers to protect our system!

1. Eric Holder recommended a “pardon” to Marc Rich, the Financier, once on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list. Marc Rich, a billionaire fled our country, denouncing his citizenship, rather than face federal tax evasion charges. Rich was “pardoned” by President Bill Clinton. Reports from U.S. intelligence officials said that Rich's oil-and-commodities company done business with Iran, Iraq and other troublesome states.
2. Eric Holder says he does not regret Clinton’s “pardon” of 16 FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation) Puerto Rican terrorists in 1999. The FALN members had, according to the FBI, been linked to "more than 130 bombings, several armed robberies, six slayings and injury to hundreds of others," reported The Baltimore Sun.
Sen. Specter (R-PA) calls FALN a terrorist organization involved in murders and bank robberies. Eric Holder recommended “commutation” of the sentence.
3. Eric Holder “represented” the AUC and FARC who are responsible for kidnapping and murdering thousands of Colombians and Americans alike while, may I say, according to Holder was protecting Chiquita. The case is the United States of America vs. Chiquita International Brands. AUC and FARC have been responsible for some of the worst massacres in Colombia's civil conflict and account for a sizeable percentage of the country's cocaine exports. On September 10, 2001, the AUC was designated by the U.S. government as a foreign terrorist organization. Chiquita claims they paid the protection money to keep their employees safe from the para-military groups, but victims' families disagree.
4. Eric Holder says “Waterboarding is torture" even though none captured have died as a result of waterboarding, yet thousands of members of our US Military’s lives have been saved.
5. Eric Holder and Obama wants to close Guantanamo Bay where the US Military is holding captured terrorists. Obama says these terrorists are being tortured. These charges are not substantiated as the International Red Cross is on scene. These terrorists are so unacceptable; no other nation wants to accept these people in their own lands. All this is from Eric Holder who says he does not know how to define “terrorist and/or terrorism”.
Based on these issues, I humbly request each member of the US Senate; Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, to reject Eric Holder as Attorney general of the United States.
