Spying on those that really need spying on

Normally I peruse Sister Toldjah's site, she is one of my regular reads in which I posted something in a comment section I thought should be carried over to a post here, so without further delay.....

The NSA program just went from an academic exercise to a practical application. The Colombians know that at least eight people snuck through on faked passports and are now in the United States. Do you suppose that an NSA program designed to check international calls might help locate these suspects — and perhaps help stop a planned attack on an American target? Obviously, this long-term and expensive project by the al-Qaeda/Hamas partnership has some grand mission in mind. They’re not traveling to the US for their health; they want to stage new attacks on the American mainland.

How does everyone feel about that international surveillance now? Sounds like a pretty damned good idea, doesn’t it?

The Capt sums it up quite nicely.

In Bin Ladens video he states there are already cells here in the US. We have proof that they have been sneaking in with false identifications by this report.

How much more does the media and the democrats want to whine about warrantless INTERNATIONAL wire taps?

I’m sorry, but if it protects US citizens by finding out information where we can prevent a terrorist attack on US soil, I have no problem with it at all.

In fact there would not be the uproar that this has caused if it had not been for illegal leaks of classified information to the NYT, which the NYT knew it was classified information but ran with it anyways, which would make them accomplices in these leaks. If none of this would have been leaked in the first place no one would even care and the the media and democrats would not be spinning this as Domestic Spying (something the Clinton Administration did) and not as International Eaves Dropping as what this is.

I agree with the Capt on this, it sure makes the International Eaves Dropping a helluva good idea in my opinion. If your talking with terrorists, I want our Government to know so they can do something about it before it becomes to late.

I think ColdHearted Truth has hit the nail on the head here in this post:

If you go out on the internet and your internet provider can track your website usage… what level of privacy can you expect? Certainly your phone company tracks your phone call usage, if not the phone calls themselves. They know who you called, when you called them, and how long you talked. If you talk on a cell phone, you know in all probability that if someone ‘wanted’ to listen in that they could with the right scanning equipment tuned to the right frequency. What level of privacy can you really expect?

One of the most frequent arguments about the 4th amendments goes to these questions. You must first determine that you have a reasonable expectation of privacy before you can claim that someone violated your rights. You cannot walk into a public restaurant, start talking within earshot of 10 people and expect that what you say is private. You cannot go to a public place, open up a public computer, bring up a child porn site and expect any privacy. You can expect that the conversation that you have with your wife that takes place in your home is private.

So I wonder out loud if our expectation of privacy hasn’t gone over the edge. Because we now do see people argue that what they do in public is private. Some seem well established valid claims, where others seem unreasonable. For example, we have heard that video cameras in places such as stores are a violation of privacy. Certainly a situation where a video camera is hidden in a tanning booth is a classic example of violation of privacy. Everyone sees this. But video cameras have been allowed in changing booths to prevent shoplifting. I would suspect mixed reaction on that one. Others argue that an open video camera monitoring a store is a violation of privacy in and of itself. Most would disagree. So where do we draw the line? What is reasonable to expect in terms of privacy as we move into the 21st century. What responsibilities do we have ourselves to be more discreet about things we want private?

While we quibble and bicker over what rights the government has to wiretap suspected terrorists and whether or not they need a FISA warrant to do so… it seems like we almost miss the point. More to the point, we need to wake up and smell the coffee. We cannot expect our law enforcement and our government to go out of their way to not do the sorts of things that a relatively good teenage hacker could do. We should not tell our law enforcement and government that they cannot have the same access to information that our internet providers and phone providers have. We have people out there who can steal everything from us, including our identities. We have people out there that can cause unlimited damage on our society. But we don’t want the very people we expect to prevent these things to play the games at the same level. I hate to tell you this, but people are gonna be out there trying to invade your privacy, and they are not doing it with the intent of preventing a terrorist attack. They have other intentions. Ask me and I would rather have the best of the best of these hackers working for us, not against us.

We think of a big brother as a bad thing… but a good big brother is always around the corner in case someone calls on his little brother and wants to do him harm. Now if we tell our big brother to leave us be and give us our space… then who are we to blame him for not being there when the bully calls and beats the hell out of us?

Do those that protest so much actually believe they have the RIGHT to privacy?
Then what do they do about these Privacy intruders:
* Telemarketers?
* Companies that sell your information?
* ISP that track your Internet usage?
* Cordless phone. You think they are Private?!?!
* You Credit Report? Ask Michael Steele how Private that is.

And there are many more instances where intrusion into your privacy happens that you don't even realize it happens.

Which raises a question, is it inherently in the Constitution that you actually HAVE a Right to Privacy? Is that one of our rights granted to us by the Constitution?

Meanwhile Iran wants DIRECT flights into the US for thier Commercial Airliners:

Iran has asked the United States to allow direct flights between the two countries after a break of more than two decades, a senior civil aviation official said on Thursday.

The request comes as the United States and its European Union allies are pressing for the Islamic Republic to be reported to the United Nations Security Council where it could face possible sanctions for its nuclear program.

“We sent a letter to the relevant American officials on Wednesday, announcing Iran’s willingness to resume direct flights,” Nourollah Rezai-Niaraki, head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization, told state television.

He said the decision to make the request was taken by hardline Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad due to demand from the large Iranian community living in the United States.

“They have repeatedly complained about wasting time and losing their baggage on connecting flights,” the official said.

Iranian airliners have been barred from the United States since the US government broke ties with Tehran after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

An Iranian civil aviation spokesman said Ahmadinejad’s decision did not signal any move to try to improve relations between the two old foes. “I hope American officials do not adopt a political stance in making a decision on this request,” said spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh.

The United States and the EU accuse Iran of trying to make nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program. Tehran says it needs nuclear technology to satisfy booming domestic electricity demand.

Iran is subject to US economic sanctions imposed in 1996, under the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act. Due to the sanctions, Iran has struggled to maintain its ageing fleet of aircraft, mostly US-built Boeing planes bought before the 1979 revolution.

Iran, who at this time wish to “wipe Israel off the map”, wishes to have direct flights to the US, an ally to Israel.


Let me think about that for a moment….

HELL NO. Are you out of your ever-loving mind?!?!

Does Osama Bin Laden listen to Michael Moore?

Anklebitingpundits has a remarkable breakdown in a comparison between these two that might suprise you:

Polls About Iraq

But I plan to speak about the repeated errors your President Bush has committed in comments on the results of your polls that show an overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.. .And so to return to the issue, I say that results of polls please those who are sensible, and Bush's opposition to them is a mistake.

Michael Moore:
I would like to extend my hand and invite you to join us, the mainstream American majority. We, the people -- that's the majority of the people -- share these majority opinions:
1. Going to war was a mistake -- a big mistake.
2. You and your administration misled us into this war
3. We want the war ended and our troops brought home.
4. We don't trust you.

Who Will Win The War And Those Fighting Against America In Iraq

Iraq has become a point of attraction and restorer of (our) energies. Only metal breaks metal, and our situation, thank God, is only getting better and better, while your situation is the opposite of that. . ..Don't let your strength and modern arms fool you. They win a few battles but lose the war. Patience and steadfastness are much better. We were patient in fighting the Soviet Union with simple weapons for 10 years and we bled their economy and now they are nothing. In that there is a lesson for you. Finally, I say that war will go either in our favor or yours. If it is the former, it means your loss and your shame forever, and it is headed in this course.

Michael Moore
The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.

Kevin McCullough touches on similar comparisons in his latest syndicated column

Clinton accepts monies from Iranian PAC

Mrs. clinton I believe will have some sort of explanation or excuse, I am sure she will, but this will be a very interesting race for NY....

John Spencer, the former Yonkers Mayor and Vietnam combat veteran who will challenge Senator Clinton in November, made the following statement. "Senator Clinton voted against the very munitions necessary to avoid a nuclear confrontation with Iran while at the same time accepting money from supporters of the Iranian Mullahs. Senator Clinton lacks the credibility to keep New York safe and she should return this tainted money."

The Time Inbetween

Unfortunately my work schedule has been incredibly busy which limits my time to post, let alone read up on the daily news.

I shall endeavor to get a few posts together here shortly as I wanted to do a series on Eminent Domain to keep it in the spotlight.

Later today though I will give a brief opinion on my thoughts on the Truce talk of Osama Bin Laden in the tape release that just came out.....

Eminent Domain - Pandora's Box Opened

Eminent Domain is a threat all who desire to one day own a home.

As it stands, you have no rights to your home; even if you have lived there 30 + years, it still doesn't matter.

Where does it say that City or Local Government can take your home away from you and give it to another private citizen without your permission or willingness?

When did we become a Communist country where everything is owned by the Government?

Now, for your home to be taken from you it doesn't even need to be "blighted", but now it can be "deteriorating" and that is good enough excuse for the local government to take it away from you. Unfortunately, "deteriorating" could mean anything and that leaves ALOT to be interpreted, and open for the local government to take your home. Who is to say what Deteriorating is?

Joy and Carl Gamble say they just want to retire peacefully in the dream home where they've lived for more than 35 years. But the Cincinnati suburb of Norwood has other plans for the property.

Using its power of eminent domain, the city wants to take a neighborhood that it considers to be deteriorating and boost its fortunes by allowing a $125 million development of offices and shops.
"It is our home, what's ours is ours, and it should be that way," Joy Norwood told a rally Wednesday morning before the hearing. "It was a home worth fighting home, and we do want it back."
The city and a private developer contend that Norwood had the right to acquire the property. They also argue that eminent domain applied not because the area is "blighted," but because it is "deteriorating."
"When the municipalities and the people that have lots of money decide they want what you have, you don't own it," Gamble said. "You bought it, you paid for it, you kept the taxes up, you kept the appearance up, but it wasn't yours."

More on it here:
The city of Norwood is trying to use eminent domain to seize remaining properties for a developer who wants to build a $125 million project of offices, shops and restaurants.

The city says the tax revenue will boost the its economic fortunes. Homeowners Carl and Joy Gamble say the city abused its authority to seize property by declaring the neighborhood **deteriorating**, a less severe condition than blighted. (Emphasis mine)
"Does it make any difference that it appears that the private developer was the one that started this ball rolling?" she said.

When is a judge no longer fit to serve on the bench?

When the judge no longer believes in punishment, not even for a child rapist, who rapes a child repeatedly from 7 years old to 10 years old. How much time do you think this rapist should get? 10 Years? 20 Years? Life? I personally believe death for this sicko, but this judge doesn't "believe" in punishment, so what did he give? 60 days!?!?!

Burlington, Vermont -- January 4, 2005
There was outrage Wednesday when a Vermont judge handed out a 60-day jail sentence to a man who raped a little girl many,many times over a four-year span starting when she was seven.

The judge said he no longer believes in punishment and is more concerned about rehabilitation.

Prosecutors argued that confessed child-rapist Mark Hulett, 34, of Williston deserved at least eight years behind bars for repeatedly raping a littler girl countless times starting when she was seven.

But Judge Edward Cashman disagreed explaining that he no longer believes that punishment works.

"The one message I want to get through is that anger doesn't solve anything. It just corrodes your soul," said Judge Edward Cashman speaking to a packed Burlington courtroom. Most of the on-lookers were related to a young girl who was repeatedly raped by Mark Hulett who was in court to be sentenced.

The sex abuse started when the girl was seven and ended when she was ten. Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of eight to twenty years in prison, in part, as punishment...

I am not familiar with this judge or his appointment to the bench, but I think if it is in anyway possible there should be a recall of this judge on Incompetence or Gross Negligence.

Jobless Claims Plunge to Five-Year Low

The number of newly laid-off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in more than five years last week, providing strong evidence that the labor market is shaking off the effects of a string of devastating hurricanes.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that applications for unemployment benefits dropped by 35,000 to 291,000, the smallest number since Sept. 23, 2000, when the economy was in the concluding months of the longest economic expansion in history.

I wonder how much news this will get.

President Bush gets blamed for everything (including the Mining accident I seen recently), but will he get credit for this also? Will it even make the light of day except on the Blogs?

Blanco orders remodeling just after storms

Office tab: $564,838

Capitol news bureau

Chris Scherer, foreman with CW Custom Cabinets, cleans up after installing walnut paneling and cabinetry Friday in the conference room on the sixth floor of the Capitol. Members of Gov. Kathleen Blanco's staff are scheduled to move into the newly renovated offices on Tuesday.

Some members of the governor's staff will return from the three-day holiday on Tuesday to newly renovated offices at the State Capitol.

Shortly after the two hurricanes, Gov. Kathleen Blanco decided to renovate some of her staff's offices. At the time of her decision, Blanco also was hinting at deep budget cuts to state programs and the possibility of laying off 20 percent of the state workforce.

The project cost $564,838.

The newly refurbished office space on the sixth floor of the State Capitol includes hookups and mounts for two flat screen televisions, Swedish granite countertops, walnut paneling and frosted laminated glass. The floor, which will not be accessible to the public, was redesigned to add three new offices, a conference room and file storage areas.

About 20 members of the governor's staff – who focus on constituent services, children's issues, women's policies and other functions – will work on the newly restored floor.

Concerned about the perception of fixing up their office space while slashing others' spending, Jimmy Clarke, Blanco's chief of staff, said Friday the governor's top aides considered not fixing the 6th floor.

But the sixth floor project was bid six days before Hurricane Katrina came ashore near Buras on Aug. 29. Clarke said he became concerned that the state could be sued successfully if the restoration project were shut down.

"We certainly would not have initiated this work post-Katrina and Rita," Clarke said. "Given all that the state faces at this time, these renovations would be a very low priority."

The floor had not been improved since the early 1980s and the space needed to be upgraded to meet safety codes, Clarke said.

Restoration work began on the sixth floor Oct. 10, two weeks after Hurricane Rita struck Cameron on Sept. 24.

The week before work began, Blanco ordered a spending and hiring freeze to rein in state government expenses.

Three days after crews started tearing out the old offices, the administration announced that the state's budget would be about $1 billion short because of damages caused by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. That day, Commissioner of Administration Jerry Luke LeBlanc told a legislative finance committee that the budgets supplying money for public health care and education would need cuts of 20 percent or more and that more than 18,000 state employees would have to be laid off.

All three floors that the governor and her staff occupy saw some upgrades, said William Wilson, director of the Office of State Buildings.

A bathroom was added to the fifth floor and new carpet was added to all three floors, he said.

But the sixth floor saw the most work, costing almost $300,000 alone, he said.

Like most of the government offices in the State Capitol, which was built in art deco style in 1932, offices line the perimeter of the sixth floor with one office per window. The center section had offices and storage space, he said.

With copy machines in the halls and files stacked in corners, "it really wasn't very efficient," Wilson said.

The center section was ripped out and rebuilt to include three new offices, space for student workers and a new conference room. The coffee room in the northwest corner was modernized.

Click here for Full Story

Over a half million dollars for remodeling of perfectly good offices, while others will lose thier jobs and others have houses that lay in ruins.

I understand the bids were before Katrina, but I am sure natural disasters are something that can force a modification of the bid/contract.

I wonder where the money is coming from they are using for the remodeling?

A New Year and a New Beginning

As we leave behind 2005, we bring forth new hopes and dreams as we start 2006.

I will begin anew, and write more during this new year, that is my pledge during this new year.

Have a Happy New Year.

'Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck...
How to live in a world that's politically correct?
His workers no longer would answer to "Elves",
"Vertically Challenged" they were calling themselves.
And labor conditions at the north pole
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.
Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
Released to the wilds by the Humane Society.
And equal employment had made it quite clear
That Santa had better not use just reindeer.
So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid!
The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
The ruts were termed dangerous by the E.P.A.
And people had started to call for the cops
When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops.
Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
His fur trimmed red suit was called "Unenlightened."
And to show you the strangeness of life's ebbs and flows,
Rudolf was suing over unauthorized use of his nose
And had gone on Geraldo, in front of the nation,
Demanding millions in over-due compensation.
So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife,
Who suddenly said she'd enough of this life,
Joined a self-help group, packed, and left in a whiz,
Demanding from now on her title was Ms.
And as for the gifts, why, he'd ne'er had a notion
That making a choice could cause so much commotion.
Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her.
Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot.
Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise.
Nothing for just girls. Or just for the boys.
Nothing that claimed to be gender specific.
Nothing that's warlike or non-pacific.
No candy or sweets...they were bad for the tooth.
Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth.
And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
Were like Ken and Barbie, better off hidden.
For they raised the hackles of those psychological
Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological.
No baseball, no football...someone could get hurt;
Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt.
Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe;
And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away.
So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He just could not figure out what to do next.
He tried to be merry, tried to be gay,
But you've got to be careful with that word today.
His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Nothing fully acceptable was to be found.
Something special was needed, a gift that he might
Give to all without angering the left or the right.
A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
Each group of people, every religion;
Every ethnicity, every hue,
Everyone, everywhere...even you.
So here is that gift, it's price beyond worth...
"May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth."

The Beginning

Where to start?

I was recently turned on to the blogs during the election when I found more truth coming from most of them than the Mainstream Media. It is a sad day when we no longer can trust the Media, those that we look toward for the news and updates on daily events to tell the truth.

Blogs on the other hand, are the recent "upstarts" those individuals who supposedly sit around in the bathrobes and pop pimples while writing their commentary. While this description leaves a lot to be desired, the truth also is left from the description that many give the Blogs. What the mainstream media fails to recognize (perhaps they do see it and are closing their eyes and chanting "I don't see you!!" over and over again thinking it will go away) is that Blogs are here to stay, they are for the most part the truth or the seekers of the truth that the media fails to give us. While the MSM puts their own bias in their reports, I see this also in the Blogs, and there is nothing wrong with this as long as you know when you are reading it where they stand.

Unfortunately for the MSM they say they are impartial but so many now know this is not true, Blogs are biased, or at least "slanted", but I have also noticed they almost always back up what they say with links and articles that support their ideas. If the MSM has a problem with what Blogs have to say, they have only themselves to blame, since most information also comes from the MSM to support what the blogs have to say.

I came across the blogs during the election as I stated earlier, getting a lot of my information from, an excellent site, looking through the link section, I came across the blogs. I made my way thru the Drudge report, and after filtering through several different types of blogs I settled into a daily reading from LGF - Little Green Footballs, Michelle Malkin, Powerline, Captains Quarters, No Left turns, Hugh Hewitt and Instapundit.

While I know they have their points of view, I tend to whole-heartedly agree with most of what is said by them and while I have created a blog here, it is not my intention to have this be any more than just my opinions, which of course, I will back up with proof.
