Subject: FW: This pretty much says it all!!!


I am the Democratic Liberal-Progressive's Worst Nightmare. 
I am an White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran, Gun Owning Biker. 
I am a Master leatherworker. I work hard and long hours with my hands to earn a living. 

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can. 
I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don't work! 

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer; it makes you a smart American. 
I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it! 
I've never owned a slave, nor was a slave. I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you! 
I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are. 

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English. 
I believe there should be no other language option. 

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others. 
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to. 
I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license...I think it's good 
And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money.. 
I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. 

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor. 
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! 
If you were born here and don't like it... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. 
(And take Barrack Hussein Obama and his group with you.) 

This is AMERICA ... 
We like it the way it is and more so the way it was ... 
So stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China, or other socialist country! 

I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest problems. 
I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years. 

I dislike those people standing in intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause.... 
Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family! 

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.... 
I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think! 
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA ! 
If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American. 
Let me make this clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY ! 

My great, great, great, great grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in the Revolution & the War of 1812. 
My great, great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Mexican American War, 
My great, great grandfather watched as his friends & brothers died in the Civil War, 
My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Spanish-American War, 
My grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I, 
My father watched as his friends died in WW II, 

I watched as my friends died in Vietnam, Panama & Desert Storm. 
My son watched & bled as his friends a have died in Afghanistan and Iraq . 

None of them died for the Mexican Flag. Everyone died for the American flag. 

Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole, other students took it down. 
Guess who was expelled...the students who took it down. 
California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo, because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them. 
We've gone so far the other way . . . bent over backwards not to offend anyone. 
Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended ! 

Enough is enough !!! 
AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS ! 

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally: 
1. Get a sponsor ! 
2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past ! 
3. Live by OUR rules ! 
4. Get a job ! 
5. Pay YOUR Taxes ! 
6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it ! 

WAKE UP America ! ! !

Why, oh, why, do these people from the Indian subcontinent seem to flock to jobs where they call people and use technical terms that they can't actually pronounce.

I mean, it's a 'resume', not a 'rezoomee'.

I had to ask the guy to repeat four times the phrase "How long have you worked in IT" (IT almost sounded like 'eighty', and I was trying to make an acronym out of 'how long have you' the way he was saying it.
I've been reading it this week.  It's an amazing book.  I'd not really thought about the Bible in modern terms, but there sure WAS a whole lot of pimping going on, and doing things 'under the influence'.

And of course, the killing continues.

Pity that it wasn't the other way around.  I bet the Holy land would be a lot happier place if they had continued the orgies and left off the death squads.

Why California decriminalized recreational pot: 5 theories

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a law that treats possession of an ounce of marijuana about as harshly as a parking violation. Why now?

Following Schwarzenegger's move, California now has some of the most lenient marijuana laws in the country.

Getting busted for having an ounce or less of marijuana in California is no longer that big a deal, or even a crime, under a new law signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Instead of facing a misdemeanor charge, people caught will a small amount of pot -- an ounce is enough for about 30 joints -- will now get, at most, a $100 fine. With everything else on his plate -- a big budget deal, a landmark health insurance exchange -- what might have motivated Schwarzenegger to decriminalize pot now? (Watch an AP report about the new law)

1. The old laws were too costly
Schwarzenegger's stated rationale for signing the bill is saving money, says Olivia Anderson in ChattahBox, and certainly "not to make it easier to get away with having pot." In fact, he underscores that he is still opposed to legalizing the drug. But "because possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is already an infraction in everything but name," Schwarzenegger says, it makes no sense to saddle the financially strapped state with the high costs of "prosecuting a crime that carries the same punishment as a traffic ticket."

2. Schwarzenegger is trying to kill Proposition 19
Essentially, "Arnold is making it harder for you to vote for Prop. 19, the November ballot initiative that would fully legalize" recreational marijuana," says Dennis Romero in L.A. Weekly. "Why legalize it when it practically is anyway?" It's a smart move by Schwarzenegger, says Josh Richman in The Monterey County Herald. Prop. 19 is up in the polls, and this law undercuts the cost-saving argument that drew many prosecutors and judges to support the law.

3. He has always had a soft spot for the green stuff
Schwarzenegger is putting the focus on law enforcement savings, says Joe Eskenazi in SF Weekly. But it's hard not to recall that scene in the 1977 documentary Pumping Iron when the former bodybuilder was "famously caught smoking a joint while eating an enormous piece of cake." You can take the boy out of Hollywood...

4. It's consistent with his cruel double standards on drug use
"The loosening in legal punishments for pot got plenty of press," says Brian Doherty at Reason, but Schwarzenegger also vetoed several measures that would have saved the lives of users of needle drugs and people who overdose. Apparently, while cannabis users are being welcomed into polite society -- which shows "some good sense" -- the governor believes "that anyone using needle drugs deserves whatever they get," and that is "horribly inhumane, and bad for the state's already staggering bottom line, and just plain dumb."

5. He was striking a blow for civil rights
There were 61,000 people arrested for marijuana possession in California in 2008, says the Drug Policy Alliance, and they were disproportionately African American -- "even though young blacks consume marijuana at lower levels than young whites." I guess "at least on paper," says L.A. Weekly's Romero, "we can all toke a little easier now."

تقول لي كل ما تبذلونه من الأفكار حول الله.
תגיד לי את כל המחשבות שלך על אלוהים.
Diga-me todos os seus pensamentos em Deus.
Inis dom go léir do chuid smaointe ar Dhia.
मुझे भगवान पर अपने सभी विचारों को बताओ.
זאג מיר אַלע אייערע מחשבות אויף גאָט.
Πες μου τις σκέψεις σας σχετικά με το Θεό.
Скажи мне все ваши мысли о Боге.

Quite a few times now

I've been the first person (or close to the first person) on the planet that knew something.

This week, it happened again.

I got an email that said it was my iTunes receipt, but it was really weird looking.

I clicked on the link (since I've got a Mac, I don't worry about these things), and got directed to a page that said I needed to upgrade my Flash and then autoloaded an 'exe' file (means nothing to Macs).

I called Apple tech support to tell them that they were about to be deluged with calls, and that they should prepare for it.  The guy on the line said his supervisor had already gotten three calls.

I called in on another unrelated issue on Saturday.  The phone line had a message about the phishing expedition at the front of the message.
