KKK wants to Adapt a Hwy in GA

Posted By Jim Johnson

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/kkk-adopt-highway-georgia-152109663.html

What do you guys think? Should they be allowed? Yes they are racists but is that a reason to deny them? I don't like them but wouldn't deny them a mile. Maybe give them camo safety vests. wink I am sure they wouldn't be the only racist group in the program nationwide but probably the most infamous.

More Church Bombings in Nigeria

Those radical Islamists are at it again. Unfortunately, Christian youths with machetes are retaliating, escalating the violence. If the radicals were allowed to get laid, BBQ some (pork) ribs and knock back a few beers maybe they wouldn't be so aggressive. :S

Talk about new lows in political campaign contributions. 8O For your birthday or special day, register with Obama and your gift dollars will go to his campaign.

Next will be ObamaForeverCare - in lieu of flowers for the dearly departed, contribute instead to Barack's glorious struggle.

Mexico out of control

Posted By Jim Johnson

http://news.yahoo.com/mexico-admits-mistake-high-profile-drug-case-041747110.html

The drug cartels are running Mexico support by the rampant corruption of politicians, police and the military. IS it time to withdraw some troops from foreign assignments and bring them to the border?

Ante Jesus (not Trolling)

Posted By Jim Johnson

Jim B mentioned Ghandi in heaven in an earlier post. Since only the saved can enter heaven, how will good people who lived before Jesus (including Abraham, Moses, David) enter heaven? Jesus stated that at that time King David was still in his grave. Also what about those born after Jesus who never heard the good news? I am curious as to the differing views on this topic. It was my understanding that after Armageddon there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous and at that time they will get a chance to choose. That view would mean that none of these were in heaven or hell.

Supremes Rule on Az Immigration

Posted By Jim Johnson

Arizona is stuck. They can't enact their own laws and the Feds are not enforcing existing federal laws. I agree with the ruling in that immigration is the domain of the federal government but I sympathize with Az in not being able to take matters in their own hands. The feds are cracking down on deporting criminals but taht is only part of the problem. They can check status during stops so I expect there will be lots of stops which might lead to more court battles over profiling and civil rights abuse.

In the meantime citizens and legals will have to compete with illegals for the coveted agricultural and domestic help jobs.

Scalia was not happy with the results.

French Terrorist Alert Level

Posted By Jim Johnson

I am reading a Ben Coes novel - Power Down and it mentioned our terrorist alert system. I remember how after infusing Homeland Security with billions of dollars we ended up with an alert system that did nothing but scare the general population. That got me to checking to see if other western countries have similar systems. I found the French system. I like it in that it tells the populace how to deal with the alert levels.

Here we go again...

Posted By Jim Johnson

http://news.yahoo.com/Egypt's-president-vows-win-release-world-trade-center-183711438--abc-news-topstories.html

The new Egyptian president - with his country in bad shape and promising a "civil, nationalist, constitutional state", he is going to focus on getting one of the plotters of the 1993 WTC bombing released from US prison as well as other martyrs to the "revolution". Good luck with that Mohammed bin Shithead.

The Prez has shown his true colors, indicating he approves of the revolution and it's terrorist attacks against the US and its allies. Egypt had earlier reneged on previous contracts to supply Israel with natural gas. If the military allows he will inflict Sharia and I feel sorry for the large number of Christians and moderates in Egypt. If this happens we should drop aid to Egypt.

I know I sound like one of the Islam hating Snopers wink but I don't trust them as far as I can throw a camel. Even if only a tiny percentage of them are terrorists, many, many more are sympathetic to the cause even if they say otherwise.

It will be interesting to see what the military will allow him to accomplish as they really hold the power.

Darn, where did I leave my Lithium...
