                                           A Gun pointed at your head

Obama Care and many federal programs start with grand ideals and end up as a gun pointed at the heads of the American people. The gun is taxation and threats of fines, demonization and jail time for those who fail to pay or go along with the programs.

The 10th amendment States that Powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to it by the States are reserved to the states or the people.”

My Question is when and how did we the people grant the feds with the power to take control of healthcare, welfare, education, the environment and the very idea of federal supremacy over laws and issues not specifically granted the federal government by the Constitution of the United States. Was there some kind of Kabuki dance by our elected officials to override the 10th amendment?

“He has erected a Multitude of new offices, and sent hither Swarms of new Officers to harass our people, and eat out their Substances”(Declaration of independence par. 12)

It now seems that what King George did; We are now doing to ourselves.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, (Declaration of independence par. 2)

When the choice of our leaders comes down to a choice between someone that respects the constitution and one that believes that the constitution is an obstacle to the tyrannical rule she desires. One who has promised to appoint judges that would water down the safeguard of our liberty guaranteed in the constitution.

The choice is clear

“I used to think I was just a regular guy, but

I got this in an e-mail I don’t know the author but it fits me to a “T”

 

“I used to think I was just a regular guy, but…

 

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.  I am a fiscal  and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.  I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.  I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.  I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.  I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.  I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man.  I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.  I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.  I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.  I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.  I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.  I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

 

Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!  I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!  I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

 

Funny…it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!  As if all this wasn’t enough to deal with…….I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!”

 

God Bless this guy, and God Bless the United States of America

 

Go Vote!!!   I Need to know just who the hell I am

The myth and Black lives Matter Lies

The myth and Black lives Matter Lies
Every credible study of police shootings of black men has concluded that there is no truth to the myth perpetuated by liberal politicians, the ACLU, NAACP and the Black Lives Matter movement is a lie. This U tube presentation lays out the argument and I urge all my readers to watch this presentation. https://youtu.be/UQCQFH5wOJo
I started in police work in 1969 after 4 years in the army and National Guard and retired in 2000. I then worked for the army as a Range tec. We Trained National Guard, and reservist for deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. I can say I have been involved in race relation of one sort or another most of my life. I am 70 now Most of my army courier was spent at post in the south in the 60s I have seen discrimination there and overseas. I have written a book about my experiences “ A View From The Street / River City Policing” You can download it for a couple bucks on amazon. If you care to read it all the proceeds go to VFW Post 5564 (See Help the vets at VFW Post 5564 on Face Book)
My firs introduction to racial hatred came from a black female when I was in the 7th grade She slapped me across the face with a ruler for talking to another black girl in language arts class you could read the ruler marks on my face for a week after that one. Before the 7th grade I had never been exposed to any racial bigotry I knew that there was something going on because King TV in Seattle ran PAS’s a little jingle that went
“ OH! The Peach pit said to the apple core the color of our skin don’t matter anymore”
I figured out what they were talking about in that 7th Grade language arts class. Those black kids hated us white kids. I got the hell beat out of me a couple times after that by mean whit kids and black kids that just didn’t like me because I had friends of all races.
The year was 1962 I took a summer job at a locale moving company my uncle worked there and he hooked some of us boys up with the job. One day a black kid came in to the dispatcher and asked for a job. The dispatcher took his application and although I knew we were shorthanded that day as soon as the kid left; he round filed the application, with a remark I won’t repeat here. The next payday I quit I told my uncle I could not work for folks like that I didn’t think my Great grandfather his grandfather a Methodist preacher would like us working for that guy. The next spring I took a job in Alaska at a fishing cannery. I returned in June and joined the National Guard and a year later I transferred to the regular army
Army life on post blacks and whites served together ate together slept together trained and suffered together, but when we stepped off post all that togetherness ended. It was not that some of us would not have hung out together. You didn’t dare! If I took a black friend to a white area he would catch hell! If he took me to sugar town I would catch hell! It all went back to that 7th grade language arts class if some of us wanted to be friends the haters would step in and end the threat.
The time has come for the good people in all races to stand up and confront the evil on both sides
The girl that wanted to be my friend in the 7th grade should have got up and clocked that ruler slapper, and I should have smacked that dispatcher that round filled the black kid’s job application!
Life is full of regrets.

theknockerblog.com Blog 79 In my 30 years in police work I noticed that there is also an over emphasis in many poor black households on “the MAN” Every Ill is blamed on “the Man” This goes on in white homes also but not to the extent that it does in the minority community.

A Legislative raid on the Police Pension Fund LEFF1 of Washington State

The Washington State Legislature For the Past several Years has been engaged in a cynical and extra-legal attempt to take funds that by established law, ( Ice Miller) (Talmadge-Bakenhus -V- City of Seattle)and ( Section 23 of the Washington State Constitution), can only be used to benefit the contributing members of the retirement plan. This situation on reflection is outrageous.

The State is in effect attempting to take control over the surplus in the LEFF 1 retirement to relieve a short fall in the teacher’s retirement fund. I have called this action an extra legal action. To put it bluntly it is theft!

It was theft from widows, orphans, and retired aging and disabled servants of the state. It is theft from those who answered a call to service, at a time in history when it was unpopular to enter the police profession.

To Attract Qualified applicants the State created the LEFF1 Retirement System.  The system was funded by the members. As it turns out the system was over funded and a sizable surplus has been created. One of the reasons for the surplus was the belief that in the short run a flood of retirees would stress the fund and it may have created a burden on the state. This did not happen owing in great part to the dedication of those who served prior to the establishment of the fund. They didn’t flee the service as predicted.  The carried on and By God I for one was glad for it. Yah some of them were gruff and hard but the job called for that. They both taught us and learned from us. The service made many changes. You Might say it grew up in the decades following the 1960s.

The men and woman who served under this system laid it all on the line; they don’t deserve this theft of their assets. Yes their assets!

The large sums of money sitting in the fund are apparently to great a temptation for a group of legislators bent on finding way to pay off their constituents for the votes that keep them in office. We find the actions of this group distasteful and frankly disgusting.

The proper solution to this problem is to remove the temptation. The fund should retain only 5% or 10% of the surplus and return the balance to the surviving members based on their individual service credits.

Trying to pay us off with some of the money and taking the rest is an insult. Whom do you think you are you who grind the face of the poor? What makes you think the good people of the state, once they know the facts, will let you get away with this?

Blog 77 Corruption at: The Department of Justice

For the last 30 years or so the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. has become more and more Politically Corrupt.

This organization is supposed to be the peoples watch dog of the government. It has become the lap dog of whatever political machine is in power. It may have always been this way, but I just noticed it sense the Nixon administration. We can’t trust the political parties to police themselves any more. As long as the ruling party has control of the Justice Department they are free to use their power to harass and intimidate their rivals.

So now we have the IRS EPA, and others being used for political witch hunts. The State Department playing fast and loose with national secrets and the Justice Department dragging its feet on the investigation of a politician while just two years ago they slammed a poor little Army corporal into the big house so fast he needed a Sex change operation. It’s just not right.

What I think we need here is an amendment to the constitution taking the department of Justice out of the political realm, and make it an independently elected nonpartisan possession, that We the people elect every two years with the house of representatives. We should term limit the job and bar any retirement or compensation other than what we the people set as fair and just compensation indexed to inflation. End of story. This way that office would be beholding to the people and only the people.

No more enforcing only the laws that politics dictate. That will teach the political parties not to make laws that they don’t want enforce.

It would also be welcome if at the same time they add a line to the amendment that states “ All elected officials shall adhere to the spirit of the constitution and the courts shall interpret the constitution as it was originally intended Under penalty of impeachment.” The Congress shall fully fund the Department of Justice, least they use the power of the purse for mischief.
