My comments will be in curly brackets ({}).
I haven’t read all the information contained in the many links in this post, so this will probably be edited throughout the day.

The above banner and slogan is quite deceptive and an utter joke to
those that are truly aware of the ACLU’s workings. Just in the past week the ACLU
has launched a massive campaign against the NSA’s efforts
to trace terrorist phone calls into the U.S. This campaign with full page ads has
even been denounced by media that usually defend the ACLU as completely lacking in context.
{This statement bothers me especially, because, while I understand that searching lists of incoming and outgoing calls is one way to find terrorists links, the author of this post seems to care very little for the innocents who will most assuredly get caught up in this.
Not everyone calling a Middle Eastern country is calling to talk to a terrorist.
For anyone to just sit back and be completely sanguin about this is very naive. Just because GovCo says it has our best interests at heart doesn’t mean it does, and it doesn’t mean that something like this doesn’t have a very great potential to be abused.
To my mind, this is just another form of the Daddy Government complex I hate so much.
The hardcore wingnuts on the left exhibit this disorder by believing and expecting GovCo to provide for all our needs, and the hardcore wingnuts on the right exhibit it by resting securely in the belief that GovCo would never do anything to hurt the American people because, well, they just can’t!
I’ll keep my healthy distrust of GovCo, thanks.}
In just the last
few days the ACLU has pounced at the chance to bash America, applauding the decision of an EU Court
that struck down an anti-terrorism agreement that allows the European Union and
the U.S. to share information on airline passengers. And in the same day the ACLU
of Florida came out against a new law that restricts
colleges and universities from using state funds for travel to countries classified
as terrorist states by the U.S. government.
The ACLU consistently aligns itself with groups like CAIR, and other organizations
that have known terrorist ties. They have turned down donations from some of their
most generous donors because of anti-terrorism stipulations. They
can always be seen defending our enemies. It is no wonder that they fight to exempt lawyers from anti-terror supporting oaths.

A while back, my friend Kathy wrote about how deceptive this banner is,
and it still applies today.

So now the ACLU is promoting itself as a champion of both safety
for our citizens and of freedom. What a joke! When 9-11 occurred what measures did
the ACLU take to ensure our safety? None, zip, nada.
{The ACLU isn’t responsible for our safety, the government is.
To ask why the ACLU did nothing to ensure our safety after 09/11 is a completely moronic question.}
This organization has done
nothing to ensure our safety, in fact it has chosen to sue our government on behalf
of terrorists target=”_blank”>outside of their legal jurisdiction while
they were located in prisons on foreign soil.
{Gitmo is considered within the U.S. for legal purposes.
This takes this claim’s foundation right out from under it.}

They have since then demanded that the government release and make public top secret security information
regarding not only the activities of our military, but also that of our intelligence
forces. They have also initiated one lawsuit after another against the government to stop
the searching of individuals for security purposes in mass transit situations, to
stop what they call profiling (we will never see a Protestant white middle-aged
woman as a terrorist working with an extremist Islamic organization) by race, sex
and religion, and to stop the government from detaining and questioning or interrogating
individuals who have ties or contact with known terrorist individuals and organizations.
{First of all, every white middle-aged woman isn’t Protestant, and to claim that we should search Arab or other Middle-Eastern-looking individuals to the exclusion of everyone else is idiotic.
A good number of the converts to Islamofacism are from the U.S. prison system.
They’re not going to look like your stereotypical terrorist.
What we need to do is take some cues from the Israelis, who have been dealing with this problem a lot longer than we have, and screen everyone, making sure that our agents are trained to monitor body language, ETC.}
They want to kill the Patriot Act because they see
the rights of an individual who may or may not be an American citizen as more important
than the safety of the nation at large. They want the borders open because they see that as
an infringement of the rights of non-Americans to become Americans however they
can manage it. They want to have military and intelligence sources, activities,
and planning revealed to the public so they can “watch dog” and ensure
freedoms of individuals and/or groups are not being compromised, but in doing so
will enable those very individuals and/or groups under surveillance the ability
to avoid surveillance and possible capture before they do something destructive
to American citizens.

They say they are for a safe and free America. Yet their actions speak very loudly
the opposite of the lip service they give in this banner for a safe America. As
to a free America, how free are American’s who live under constant threat of a lawsuit
by the ACLU for imagined Constitutional transgressions by a small group of jaded
individuals who think their rights are more important than the communities they
live in or the country they obviously find such fault with?

As for the part of the banner that says they want a free America, perhaps a better
slogan would be….”If standards are good, then double standards must be even
better.” When it comes to freedom of speech, the ACLU trip over their own
two feet. While the left hand defends the rights of anti-American protesters, the
right hand acts to suppress the free speech rights of pro-life protesters.
When it comes to religious free speech, the ACLU acts more like a censor than a protector.
The hypocrisy of the ACLU on freedom of speech has even been noticed by its own
board members, but the ACLU has a solution to that….restrict
their speech.

There are very few organizations that are as hypocritical, and dangerous as the
ACLU. I really don’t understand why so many politicians sit aside and do nothing
to curb the reckless power they have accumulated. However, as many people are seeing
in today’s times, when the government doesn’t do what it should, the people rise up and stand up for their own rights.

The ACLU and the judicial activists are destroying our heritage, security, and our
sovereignty. They are doing it with our tax dollars. Join us, and the American Legion to urge Congress
to put a stop to this. Support Congressman Hostettler’s legislation to stop taxpayer
funding of the ACLU.

Sign the Petition To Stop Taxpayer Funding of the
ACLU.

{I think stopping funding of the ACLU is the wrong way to go about this.
Let’s not forget the fact that, despite however few times it happens, the ACLU defends the rights of even those they don’t agree with as well.
If we have no funding by the ACLU, then what are all the fundamentalists going to do when someone really does discriminate against them?
There’ll be no one to turn to then.}

I’m sitting here at my desk, and I can’t seem to get situated.
These chairs are just the other side of comfortable, so it’s hard to find a position that’s good enough to stay in.
I’d leave and go outside, but it’s hotter than Hell out there.
I was out there eating my lunch.
I may go out and check my messages as an excuse to go out and get some air, even though the air is pretty non-existent, and there’s enough humidity to last for the rest of my lifetime. I’m really sleepy, and I shouldn’t be because I actually got eight hours’ sleep last night. I’m currently reading Harry potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in order to try to pass the time.
I’ll be glad when this evening gets here and I can leave.
Next week will be seven months with no work, excluding the speratic tasks John gives me to do, which are greatly appreciated.
Just maybe, sooner or later, I’ll become productive again.
But then, Hell might freeze over too.
Mr. Frodo is such a moron for allowing this to continue.
No, never mind, it’s all the sighted people responsible for causing this problem and allowing it to continue who are morons, and, although it’s hard to admit, in the grand scheme, Mr. Frodo is pretty insignificant.
He’s just the closest idiot.
Apparently we have yet another referral training thingy to go through.
We did the second part Wednesday, and it was a fine example of the kind of effort that gets put into being negatively productive I’ve ever seen.
I didn’t say unproductive, I said negatively productive.
There’s productive, then unproductive, (which means you’re not doing anything either way), and then there’s negatively productive, where you deliberately waste more than twenty minutes of your time at someone else’s behest, just because they want you to.
That’s been the referral training.
Every last word is in the information system we have, so there’s no point in anyone getting together for four hours at a time, three different times, to read through it.
And while I’m at it, the company needs to offer training on how to speak proper English, or at least something that resembles it.
Sunt is not a word, sent is.
It’s not a consonant thing, it’s a constant thing.
How exactly is it that people manage to get through high school not knowing how to speak their native language.
Morons, every last one of them.

I can’t sleep, so I decided to get up, turn the TV on in the living room, and make rice crispy treats.
Not the usual thing you do at 3AM in the morning.
But I was going to do it later today anyway, and this just means they’ll be done cooling, and the chocolate they’re smothered in will be all nice and solid, and they’ll be sitting in the fridge tempting me to eat them.
I’ve managed to get some of my coworkers addicted to them, and I promised I’d make them some more this weekend.
And no, you can’t have the recipe.
The weather wasn’t bad here on Shabbat, although the mosquitoes were out in full force last night.
I ended up taking my dinner outside and eating it out there.
I made a tomato sandwitch and a salad.
I had forgotten how good tomato sandwitches were.
It’s been years since I’ve had one.
That tomato’s going to be gone in three days.
This week I should actually have a paycheck that’s very close to normal.
With the exception of coming in to work late two days in a row two weeks ago, it should be the full amount.
I had almost forgotten what it was like to see a normal one.
I still haven’t heard any word on what’s going on with my robbery case, but I’d really like to go and burn the jail down as long as Michelle and her hoodlum buddies are still in it.
I’ll feel a whole lot better once this goes to trial, and if they all get sentenced to forever in prison, and it’s done and over with.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress.

Foreword by Heidi at Euphoric Reality

From Spanish-speaking illegal workers, to angry tenured professors and arrogant politicians, we are hearing more and more tenets and demands from a movement called Reconquista. The movement, once dismissed as extreme racist rhetoric, has rapidly gained traction and momentum among millions of ill-educated illegal aliens and well-established Mexicans alike. Reconquista gives voice to the angry demands of present-day Mexicans who mistakenly think they have indigenous rights to the land of the Southwestern United States – which they claim was “stolen” by an imperialist American government. The centerpiece of their agenda is the mythical Aztlan.

In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal “gringo” invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny.

“From whence came our forefathers…?” Nothing could be further from the truth – not that the facts matter much in their efforts to further “La Raza” – or The Race. Using racially-charged arguments to batter at the traditional guilt mentality of Americans, proponents of Aztlan aim to “reconquer” the Southwestern United States as their due. Apparently, they fail to understand that the tribes of present-day Mexico never inhabited the Southwest U.S., nor for the most part did Mexicans themselves – it was mostly open land [frontier] except for northern Native Americans (as you will see below).

A manifest destiny has been embraced by many within mainstreamed advocacy groups in America such as La Raza, LULAC, and most commonly MECHa, the radical student organization which has specifically embraced the tenets of Atzlan. “Por La Raza todo, Fuera de La Raza nada,” is translated as “For the Race, everything, for those outside of the Race, nothing.” Though that singular statement seems to sum up the demands of today’s angry illegal Mexican aliens, there is much more to their Plan to restore Aztlan:

Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent

Love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come and who struggles against the foreigner “gabacho” who exploits our riches and destroys our culture … Economic control of our lives and our communities can only come about by driving the exploiter out of our communities, our pueblos, and our lands and by controlling and developing our own talents, sweat, and resources.

Education must be relative to our people, i.e., history, culture, bilingual education, contributions, etc.

Self-defense of the community must rely on the combined strength of the people … For the very young there will no longer be acts of juvenile delinquency, but revolutionary acts.

A nation autonomous and free – culturally, socially, economically, and politically- will make its own decisions on the usage of our lands, the taxation of our goods, the utilization of our bodies for war, the determination of justice (reward and punishment), and the profit of our sweat.

So there is a Plan for Reconquista. But do these emotional and racial claims have any historical basis?

Clearing Up A Misconception About Reconquista
by Loma Alta

Introduction.

Spain conquered what was to become modern Mexico and part of the southwestern United States in 1521. Spanish rule lasted 300 years until 1821 when Mexico gained independence. Mexico ruled what is now part of the southwestern United States for a very, very short time. Mexico ruled Texas from 1821 until 1836, some 16 years. Mexico ruled California from 1821 until 1846, 26 years. Mexico ruled most of New Mexico from 1821 until 1848, 28 years, and the southern most portions of Arizona and New Mexico until purchased by the United States in 1853, 33 years. The United States began ownership of these territories in 1845 (Texas), 1846 (California), and 1848-1853 (New Mexico and Arizona). Thus the United States has owned this land since 1845-1853, 153-162 years.

The ownership has thus been: Spanish 1521-1821 or 300 years; Mexican 1821-36 to 1853 or 16 to 33 years; and American 1845-1853 or 154 to 162 years. Almost all development and modernization came under United States ownership. Please see Spain, Mexico, Texas, California, and New Mexico-Arizona for more details.

Comparison of Ownership Time and Development.

Spain owned the area for 300 years and operated it as a colony. The central area, and most developed part was around Mexico City with much of the current southwestern United States being the frontier, relatively undeveloped, and subject to Indian raids and predations. The situation was much the same in the very, very short period, 16-33 years, of Mexican ownership. With the United States ownership, 154 to 162 years, beginning as territories, exploration and development proceeded rapidly and modern civilization came with, or shortly after, statehood.

The Absurdity of Reconquista.

Whether by time of ownership or degree of development and civilization, Mexico had virtually no temporal or civil weight of authority in the southwestern United States. Mexico never really established military or civil control over the area and it was never really a normal part of Mexico, but was always the frontier with vast expanses of nearly unexplored and lightly inhabited regions far from Mexican rule and authority. So tenuous, unpopular, and corrupt was Mexico’s presence and claim to the areas, and the Mexican government so hated by American and Mexican pioneers alike, that they only lasted from 16 to 33 years.

Thus, Reconquista is another myth, promulgated for racist reasons (it is the spawn of Mexican supremacist groups such as La Raza – literally “the Race”) much as the Germans’ “Lebensraum”, or living space, was for the master race. And, Reconquista is equally racist and equally the deranged product of irrational hate groups.

Therefore, we can dismiss the concept of “Reconquista” as a racist, hate group concept that has no place in America, or in any other just and tolerant society or country. There is no need to give any credence whatsoever to the false and meritless claims of any moral attachment to territory by radical, racist groups. They are as phony as last year’s bird’s nest.

The father of a Marine whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters from a fundamentalist Kansas church filed an invasion-of-privacy suit against the
demonstrators Monday.

It is believed to be the first lawsuit brought by a soldier’s family against Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., whose members routinely demonstrate
at military funerals around the country.

Albert Snyder of York, Pa., the father of Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder is seeking unspecified damages. The younger Snyder, 20, died
March 3 after an accident in the Al Anbar province of Iraq. He was buried in Westminster, Md.

“We think it’s a case we can win because anyone’s funeral is private,” Snyder lawyer Sean Summers said. “You don’t have a right to interrupt someone’s private
funeral.”
Members of Westboro say the military deaths in Iraq are God’s punishment for America’s tolerance of gays. They typically carry signs with slogans such as
“God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for IEDs,” a reference to the roadside bombs used by insurgents.

The church has inspired dozens of state laws banning funeral protests, including a Maryland law that did not go into effect until after Snyder’s memorial.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokeswoman for the small congregation, said it is the first time Westboro has been sued by a soldier’s family. “We were exercising
our First Amendment rights,” she said.
I’m glad the father is taking a stand in this way.
For God’s sake, someone needs to.
These people are loose cannons who need to be fought against at all costs.
I don’t care what your views are, protesting at funerals is totally inappropriate.
That’s why you have rallies.
Then, we can film you, post the videos all over the ‘Net and the media, and call you crazy and laugh at you.
That’s us exercising *our* first amendment right.
HT Sto The ACLU.

I’m starting to get feedback from other blind and visually impaired users of customerservant.com, and it seems as if, though I’m used to dealing with sites that aren’t as accessible as I’d like them, and so I hadn’t considered that this one was a huge problem, it apparently is a huge accessibility challenge.
I think we’re going to have some huge problems further down the road, given that Web 2.0 is the latest rage, and it seems everyone wants to make their applications web-based.
I don’t see this going anywhere but more and more graphical, which will present problems for screen readers unless something comes up that allows for them to be a little more interpretive of dynamic web content.

If all of the people boohooing about the plight of illegal aliens would stop debasing themselves and this country for about five seconds, they’d have enough time to view the following statistics:
Murders in the United States jumped 4.8 percent last year, and overall violent crime was up 2.5 percent for the year, marking the largest
annual increase in crime in the United States since 1991, according to figures released Monday by the FBI.
Robberies nationally increased 4.5 percent, and aggravated assaults increased 1.9 percent, while the number of rapes last year fell 1.9 percent, the report
said.
The Justice Department has no idea what’s driving this upswing, but I think the answer is very easy to figure out.
Three words: Gangs of illegals.
The one that’s gained a very large dose of notoriety of late is Mara Salva Trucha, better known as MS13.
These thugs are trained in paramilitary tactics, which means they can invade homes and rob with alarming efficiency.
They’re also known for the way they punish defectors and rival gangs, one of their favorite methods being to cut off the fingers of offenders with machetes.
The group is made up mostly of Salvadoran illegals, but now includes a large number of Mexican illegals as well.
And they’re not just in big cities anymore.
They now have a presence in Northern Virginia, as well as rural Pensylvania.
And the scariest part is they’re just the tip of the ice-berg.
Hispanic youths, whether recent arrivals or birthright American citizens, are developing an underclass culture. (By
“Hispanic” here, I mean the population originating in Latin America—above all, in Mexico—as distinct from America’s much smaller Puerto Rican and Dominican
communities of Caribbean descent, which have themselves long shown elevated crime and welfare rates.) Hispanic school dropout rates and teen birthrates
are now the highest in the nation. Gang crime is exploding nationally—rising 50 percent from 1999 to 2002—driven by the march of Hispanic immigration east
and north across the country. Most worrisome, underclass indicators like crime and single parenthood do not improve over successive generations of Hispanics—they
worsen.
The pull to a culture of violence among Hispanic children begins earlier and earlier. Researchers and youth workers across the country confirm
this observation. In Chicago, gangs start recruiting kids at age nine, according to criminologists studying policing and social trends in that area.
The Chicago Community Policing Evaluation Consortium concluded that gangs have become fully integrated into Hispanic youth culture; even children not in
gangs emulate their attitudes, dress, and self-presentation.
The result is a community in thrall.
Federal law enforcement officials in Virginia are tracking with alarm the spread
of gang violence from Northern Virginia west into the Shenandoah Valley and south toward Charlottesville, a trend so disturbing that they secured federal
funds to stanch the mayhem.
And that was in May of 2004, when the immigration problem was well below the radars of most Americans.
“This is beyond a regional problem. It is, in fact, a national problem,” said FBI assistant director Michael Mason,
head of the bureau’s Washington field office.
Open-borders apologists dismiss the Hispanic crime threat by observing that black crime rates are even higher. True, but irrelevant: the black population
is not growing, whereas Hispanic immigration is reaching virtually every part of the country, sometimes radically changing local demographics. With a felony
arrest rate up to triple that of whites, Hispanics can dramatically raise community crime levels.
Many cops and youth workers blame the increase in gang appeal on the disintegration of the Hispanic family. The trends are worsening, especially for U.S.-born
Hispanics. In California, 67 percent of children of U.S.-born Hispanic parents lived in an intact family in 1990; by 1999, that number had dropped to 56
percent. The percentage of Hispanic children living with a single mother in California rose from 18 percent in 1990 to 29 percent in 1999. Nationally,
single-parent households constituted 25 percent of all Hispanic households with minor children in 1980; by 2000, the proportion had jumped to 34 percent.
The trends in teen parenthood—the marker of underclass behavior—will almost certainly affect the crime and gang rate. Hispanics now outrank blacks for teen
births; Mexican teens have higher birthrates than Puerto Ricans, previously the most “ghettoized” Hispanic subgroup in terms of welfare use and out-of-wedlock
child-rearing. In 2002, there were 83.4 births per 1,000 Hispanic females between ages 15 and 19, compared with 66.6 among blacks, 28.5 among non-Hispanic
whites, and 18.3 among Asians. Perhaps these young Hispanic mothers are giving birth as wives? Unlikely. In California, where Latina teens have the highest
birthrate of teens in any state, 79 percent of teen births to U.S.-born Latinas in 1999 were to unmarried girls.
All of the above should be more than enough reason for the bleeding-hearts to quit their pandering to the illegal alien community and face the facts.
These are not just people living in the shadows, trying to eek out a living.
The crimes they’re committing are vicious, and doing things like tying the hands of law enforcement officials, not allowing them to arrest for illegal status, is only worsening the problem.
These are also the same people demanding rights as if they’re owed.
I think we need to take a good long look at where this country is headed.
I think it’s safe to say we’re being invaded.

As the momentum continues gaining on the side of freedom and the United States, more defeats mount for the Islamofascists. Iraqi and Coalition Forces have
taken the momentum by killing Zarqawi and launching a series of raids that has begun to cripple the ?insurgency? in Iraq. While combat and death still
looms on the horizon, day-to-day victories are now piling up in favor of the new Iraqi Government and the United States.

POST-AL-ZARQAWI RAIDS KILL 104 INSURGENTS

BAGHDAD, Iraq – American and Iraqi forces have carried out 452 raids since last week?s killing of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and 104 insurgents
were killed during those actions, the U.S. military said Thursday.

Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, said the raids were carried out nationwide and led to the discovery of 28 significant
arms caches.

He said 255 of the raids were joint operations, while 143 were carried out by Iraqi forces alone. The raids also resulted in the captures of 759 ?anti-Iraqi
elements.”

Look at all the good news in those few sentences. First off, 104 insurgents is a sizable amount, considering the ?insurgency? remaining is likely to number
in the low thousands, if not less. Also, the discovery of 28 arms caches is a positive development, because the new leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq (Al-Masri)
may not be as good at acquisitioning resources as al-Zarqawi was. Next comes the news that 143 out of 255 raids were launched by Iraqi forces alone. Consider
this a major step in the Iraqis securing the future of their country. Finally, 759 enemies of Iraq have been captured, another big positive. Good news
coming from all over Iraq.
None of this is going to matter to those who insist on refusing to see any good come out of a situation that hasn’t always been on the right footing.
I’m not even close to satisfied with the way this thing has gone, but let’s give credit where credit is due.

The next Islamic Republic in the world, France, has it?s share of problems. Despite the fact that they are welcoming an unprecedented number of Muslims
into their nation, including radicals, they are still a target. The newest target for Islamofascist terrorists is the largest symbol in France.
MILITANT MUSLIM GANG JAILED FOR PLOT TO DESTROY EIFFEL TOWER

A PARIS court sentenced 25 Muslim militants yesterday for planning attacks against the Eiffel Tower and other targets with explosives in support of rebels
fighting Russian forces in Chechnya.

The five main defendants, of Moroccan and Algerian origin, received prison terms of eight to ten years for planning terrorist acts. The others received
lesser terms for criminal association. Two were acquitted in a trial which prosecutors said demonstrated the ?globalisation of the jihad movement?.

This is a sign to the West. After the recent arrests in Canada, we have to understand that the Jihadis are planning attacks against ALL Western nations, not just those allied closely with the United States. France opposed
Iraq adamantly and they?re still a target. This isn?t the United States vs. Al-Qaeda, this is the Western World vs. Islamofascism.

What else does this say? It says that a lax immigration system that doesn?t emphasize assimilation and lets in radicals without screening them won?t work.
It says that security should still be the utmost priority. France was LUCKY this time, because with the number of radicals in their country, there are
bound to be hundreds more planning strikes.
I’d like to say that this will teach the Europeans who oppose the U.S., thinking it will buy them some time, a much-needed lesson concerning terrorism, but I’ll most likely be wrong.
I’ll close by stating that I’m not saying that everyone should fall in lock-step behind us, just that they should realize that welcoming terrorists is no guarantee of their not deciding to hit said welcoming country.
