Protesters Question Archbishop's Loyalty To US
Protest LA Archbishop Jose Gomez Residence

Dozens of protesters have shown up at Archbishop of Los Angelus Jose Gomez residence. Many carrying American flags and bearing signs questioning Gomez's loyalty to the US not Mexico along with many signs demanding equal rights for American citizens in Mexico.

The protest was apparently triggered by the clerics decision to push forward with his predecessors decision the disgraced Cardinal Mahoney by offering amnesty thus citizenship to Mexicans who crossed the border illegally. While thousands of Americans in Mexico suffer under 2nd class citizenship unable to own property and suffer indignitys let alone participate in Mexican elections while living there in Mexico.

A spokeswoman for the group, Harriet Hildegarden insisted her group consists of Catholics loyal to the church. "We will be protesting at other locations where prominent clergy of the church have sided with the Obama regime". "Hildy" claims the church is supporting the democrat party which denied God at their convention and declared what she claims is war on the Catholics but would collude with it on "social engineering" issues including "amnesty" . When asked if she may be denied communion for her activities her reply was "Well it's been known that when that happens quicker when clerics get personally attacked than when some politican challanges the church on the grounds of faith and morals"

MR PRESIDENT OBAMA
HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO EMPLOY MILLIONS
BY EDICT
ORDER GUARDS MANNED 24/7 AT ALL RR CROSSINGS

The fabled stimulus package "earmarked" 8 billon$ for the construction of "high speed rail" to 31 different routes which almost all are not "high speed" but mid speed 100+ mph after years of trial runs at 78mph.
     This funding does not include aquisition of restricted right of way which would be needed for "high speed" rail
    Most call for foreign made "special locomotives and passenger cars" where present diesel/electric locomotives and cars could be modified to do this. Once and if completed. The major maintainence and operational costs would fall to the individual states to keep these routes running.

If President Obama was really interested in restoring employment this is what he could do with swell foop of his pen.

Now that President Barack Obama has been sworn into office and his Czars of mistakes have been chosen. It is time to follow talk show host (who brung us John McCain) count neo con Bill O'Reilly.

O'Reilly was calling for every American with conservative stripes support President Barack Obama and "give him a chance" .

Obama should be "given the chance" in his efforts to demonstrate that government has the solution and can solve every problem. Because (take anti smoking laws,or regulating fatty foods,)

The average citizen is not responsible for their individual actions. Therefore the government must step in under Obamas direction reinforced by Democratic Pary progressives and save the citizen from themselves.

Especially in situations where thousands of lives are lost each year such as in the following example.

Safeguarding railroad crossings is one way the obama administration can lead. By taking direct action this will not only save lives but add significantly to the employment roles.

There are some 250,000 actively used 24/7 street level railroad crossings throughout the United States. Because they have been left unguarded *5,000 deaths have occured last year. In a ten year span 50,000 lives have been lost because these crossings have been left unguarded, or equipped with a signalling device which because the crossing is still unguarded goes ignored.*statistic source US Dept of Climate Control....

Most intersect and cross two lane roads. However some cross four and six lane highways. By constructing watchtowers manned by two crossing guards on duty 24/7 each facing the incomming traffic on two lane roads and four watch towers on four lane roads manned 24/7. Fatalities and injuries at these dangerous crossings would be eliminated. 50,000 lives would be saved within 10 years, The Government (Obama) would save (men,women, and lets not forget the CHILDREN )lives.

With each 2 lane crossing requiring 6 guards. Three guards per 8 hour shift.That would mean employment wise 6 X 200,000. The number of crossings on 2 lane roads. would equal =1,200,000 new jobs and 50,000 four or six lane road crossings at 8 guards each. Would equal = 400,000 newly created jobs. The total employment created would be 1 million 600,000 new jobs which would then join the SEIU newly created rail security guards local

As President, Obama could edict the crossing guard program through the DOT (department of transportation) mandating the railroads to comply if they refuse then nationalize them and bring back the firemen on those diesel electric engines. Thus endearing himself to the Rail unions.

Thus in one swell foop,a million plus new jobs are created,and the construction business gets a boost building those 500,000 plus watch towers.

This done all without even going to the pesky house or bothersome senate. Done without waiting for the $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (trillion$) infa-porker "save my state bailout" kicking in which would take years to go in effect and eons to pay for. Obama meets his campaign statement which gets fullfilled which would make him (after all those broken promises made during his campaign) almost honest .

. Reminding the reader that the Boston tunnel project when complete cost well over 100 billion and took 10 years to build. This $8,000,000,000 even if started are going to be tracks to nowhere.These will never get built because that money will be eaten up by campaign contributers aligned with "consultants". This will wind up like Chicago's never built "cross town expressway" . Better off with the manned watch towers and guard all railroad cossings... its cheaper

OBAMA REDUCES NATIONAL DEBT
In a swell foop of his pen President Barack H. Obama has silenced his critics on wastefull spending that nationally rewarded his socialist supporters by creating a national debt in the tens of trillions of dollars by issuing a Presidential Dictum .
   By doing so President Obama has drastically reduced the national debt. By his executive order all denominations of money, coins and bills, will be re-named.
   Until a new minting of coins begins. The American common coins known as a penny, dime,quarter, and half dollar will remain in use but "revalued".
   Coins begining with the common copper coin known as a penny, a one cent piece, will no longer be valued as a "cent" (1/100th of a dollar) but a "MIL* and "re-valued" to 1/1000th of a dollar. The next denomination formerly known as a "dime" will now be designated, valued at a cent or penny.
    The President has assured US pricing increments will remain based on the cent revalued and not the MIL The common nickel will ( a 5 cent piece) be recalled and replaced by the quarter which will have the value of 5 cents and the 50 cent piece be valued at a dime or 10 Obama cents.
    Thus bringing the promised change to his supporters, which will be required to be carried with to make a purchase..
   By taking this action the national debt of 12 trillion dollars has been reduced to a managable 1.(point)2 trillion dollars.
   The presidential move was inspired by a letter from 6 year old Betsy Bottomly who complained about the high cost of candy. In announcing the decision skipping aside from the cusomary telepromter Obama intoned It...uhh humm.. also means great things for ...uhh ... the children because a candy bar priced at the prevalued $.50 cents ...uhhh...will (using the devalued 50 cent piece known as a half dollar)....hummm.... only cost 10 Obama cents

Bloviate found in Massachusetts WatersA strange chemical substance has been discovered in potable (drinking) waters derived from wells and rivers located in that state. N4O3H2Al, known as Bloviate has been found after manifestations of its drinkers exhibited efusive elentic elenchus disorder.

Scientists of the highest order investigating these symtoms announced "This substance called Bloviate interacts explosively (hence the name bloviate) disengaging speaking parts of the brain with its rationale portions . Those with this disorder called Bloviators disease can be identified by long rambling speech patterns which are highly accusatory without offering substance approaching the paranoid state." The CDW (center for dangerous waters) has reported other locations are in Illinois (Springfield) and locations in Calfornia. Apparently bloviators origin can be found in Massachusetts waters

GLOBAL WARMING GW CRITICS RELIGION TALK RADIO
My Guardian Angel must have prompted me to write this in 06 because his 08 New Year encylical will say this in no uncertain terms Popes statement
<

POPE GIVES GORE AND GLOBAL WARMING COLD SHOULDER !
To use the tired but highly reliable old chestnut; "My mind is made up Don't confuse me with the facts " Whenever talkies (radio talk show hosts) bring up this subject on their respective radio talkshows . Many talk show hosts accuse global warming adhearants of following a religion. For as the host cites previous recession of ice ages spreading about 10,000 years apart 10 callers out of 11 (this is truly an unscientific result) responders will still insist " global warming... its mans fault".

Its been reported that Pope Benedict (who has a record of infallibility) was asked to issue a Papal Bull sanctifying the recent study by the UN which stated "The earth is warming". Perhaps bearing in mind the last time a Catholic Pope was asked to pronounce on a scientific treatise and the Gallileo episode when the sun revolved around the earth. The Catholic Pontiff politely refused and had reportedly responded, some suggest crypticly, "The weather is outside- I will pray for you".
     Now scholars are busy interpreting his remarks. It is not clear what the Pope meant by "the weather is outside". Scholars are asking outside of what ? Outside the window ? Outside the Vatican ? Oh ! he probably meant the weather is outside the churches perview, and the UN report did say its too late for man to change it so they expect God to do it. Then why did the Pope say "the weather is outside" ?
     Then he used the phrase "I will pray for you" .What would the Pope pray for ? Does the phrase "I will pray for you" mean he would pray for the fools who believe they can change the weather ?. Pray that they are right ? Pray that they are wrong ? Pray for those with their handsout for research grants don't spend that money in the Bahamas, or pray for those affected by those affected by the regulations the politicans will dream up based on false assumptions.
     In addition by using the word "outside" what did he mean ? While it is true the weather does occur "outside" by using that word what did he mean ? Did he mean the weather occurs outside of mans control ? Then who does ?

Take the sun which drives our weather system, its radiation fluctuates wildly, we only know this recently. The earth magnetic fields reverse polarity. We only know this recently, no body was around to record what happens when it does. The earth warmed up and cooled when there were no SUV's, then it iced up the sea level dropped. The "Big Apple" was twice as big, and when it warmed the sea level rose and Florida got smaller. So we don't know. Hey maybe the Pope is right , the weather is outside. Holy Samoly !Maybe the guys is infallible, and Gore isn't.

SADDAM'S CAPTURE
QUESTIONS FOR CAPTURED SADDAM THEY SHOULD HAVE ASKED INCLUDING WHERE ARE THOSE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION BEFORE THEY SLOWLY HUNG HIM.

Saddam how do you spell your last name ? Was it ? Saddam; Husayn , Hussain, or Hussein?
And did you own ? The Al Jezera or El Jazzera, sometimes spelled eLJezzera, or sometimes spelled elJisera,and sometimes its even spelled this way, Oljesera the infamous Arab TV network located in Qatar (sometimes pronouced gutter)?

And Saddam, What did you do with your minster of misinformation known as Bagdad Bob ??? .
   Is The former Iraqi Minister of Information known as "BB" or Bagdad Bob still lost in one of the lost secret passages beneath Bagdad guarding a lost W.M.D depot? David Letterman, had "Bagdad Bob"Editing NY Times which was promptly denied by The NY Times Big Burgher while conceding he could use the help.

On TOP OF THE STORY Earlier reports of cloning by the SSS (Swiss Secret Service)have been discounted the captured Saddam (however you spell his last name) is the original.

Speaking of Histerical history

THIS IS BASED ON FACT
ARE TROLLS LIVING BELOW THE MACKINAW BRIDGE

Trolls in Michigan ? They're not in the UP upper peninsula ! They're Living Below The Mackinaw Bridge.
Do you know why Ohioans sing the tune " I don't give a damm for the whole state of Michigan cause I'm from Ohio?"
   Well sir. They were breaking up Virginia territory which every thing up to Illinois was once Virginia.
   Well sir. Michigan woncet(wonst) claimed Toledo not as Ohio(a nice little Ohio town I woncest (wonst) stayed at)but Michigan. With that, the Ohio militia moved in to protect it because the Michigan militia was going to move in and claim it for Michigan as its own.
    Well sir, peace was declared. Now this was during the time when peace treatys always means somebody gets screwed the indigenous Americans (we were so stupid at the time we mistook them for "Indians"and still do) AND EVEN WHITE MEN.,This time some French,Welsh,Swiss,Germans,Poles,Irish,Finnish,and Norskys (lots of them) all who ever was dere and below on de udderside u da lakes,called Wisconsinites.
    So Wisconsin got screwed.They gave the UP known as the Upper Peninsula to Michigan So thats why there are so many trolls dere in da UP.Now trolls, according Norse legend are little ugly people who live below the bridge, Mackinaw that is.

CBS, PBS, NBC, all mentioned historical inaccuracies in their news presentations.

 TODAYS DRUDGE REPORT ( an accurate but conservative bent Inet publication). It was picked up by the NY Times (a politically liberal publication).
.... Beefs were portrayal of alive but incapacitated historical figures Nancy & Ronnie (President Reagan reported to be dying see Drudge report) and historical inaccuracies contained in the production. A combination that caused CBS to drop the proposed series and a every day business decision. CBS was looking at a contraversial over budget production accompanied by a retinue of lawyers.
    One who should know this better than anyone else is a news anchor.

However siding with his position was Eric Boehlert,of SALON, "Where the effete meet to bleat" emag,piously postulating on PBS NOW,(11/7/03)"Like cause, even pope whatzisname was right to make Galileo do a rewrite, cause it would sell better, cause even two year olds know how the world turns, if they don't then they're stupid"

Reacting to pressure from United Fund supporters the Las Vegas authorities had requested Jackson remove his (Boy) Scout Master uniform and surrender in street clothes which is why surrender took so long. ...Responding to criticism BSA (Boy Scouts of America)officials about their "Humanitairian Award" to the pop music star. Retorted It was meant to go to the other Michael, basketball player Michael Jordan, which got somehow confused with Jackson because somehow all those names look the same.

Bending over to pressure from the Gay community BSA allowed the award presentation to take place anyway.
   At his arraignment Jackson put on an impromptu performance for hundreds of his supporters outside the courthouse after entering a plea of "not guilty" dancing on the hood of a car. (He said earlier at his arrest cops hurt his tiny wrist and couldn't move one hand)..

NEW YORK CITY TO BAN DRIVING ONE DAY PER WEEK ?

Its been reported by an unreliable source that in order to encourage use of public transit personal use of a vehicle will be banned one day during a working week day on a rotating basis.
    Reports are that it was first proposed to be tried first on a voluntary basis but was nixed because a mandating govermnent works better and non compliance doesn't bring in revenues. Violaters will face stiff fines.
   The report was not clear if the legislation originated in New York City, London , Seattle , Chicago, Minneapolis, city council, or by some mayor. It was clear that the idea will happen in one of those major citys with a nanny disposition which are running serious deficits in public transit. The source exclaimed that such a move would wipe out those pesky losses and not require local jurisdictions to tap into the pockets of state and national taxpayers. If it was New York City it is expected Mayor Bloomberg would be exempted. Two views Anorak UK   Huffington Post
