I was on the side of Gates, but after reading your blog and both articles it is clear to me that Gates is an opportunist to put it lightly. I have no doubt that he escalated the situation with the officer in order to make a point and get some attention.
He'll probably turn this into a money making opportunity in the form of a book or some racial profiling documentary.
Anyway thanks again for putting a different perspective out there.
Due to popular demand, the release date for Whitney Houston's 6th studio CD "I Look To You" has been moved up to August 31st, according to a label press release! You can also download the full HQ single on Whitney's website http://www.whitneyhouston.com/ until July 31st!
Yesterday, loyal reader pointhimout left this comment under one of my Obama posts:
My understanding is the underlying purpose of this obamacare is population control.
She's right, and that means she's doing her research (unlike you Kool Aide drinkers). It's right there in the 1,000 page House version of the Health Care Reform bill. Obamacare bureaucrats will make sound medical decisions for all Americans -- not medical personnel, but government bureaucrats.
Someone once said: The true measure of a man can be found by who they associate themselves with.
John Holdren, Barack Obama's "Science Czar" co-wrote a book about 30 years ago advocating forced abortions and mass sterilizations as a form of population control. The book is called Ecoscience and you can find it on Amazon.com. This guy Holdren is one of the bureaucrats who will make medical decisions for us if ObamaCare passes.
Contained within the book Ecoscience are numerous radical references to population control:
Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.
Forcibly removing babies from "undesirables" and putting them up for adoption
Legalizing “compulsory abortions,” ie forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is already common place in Communist China
Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”. (that would be YOU hoodrats)
And here's a direct quote form the book:
“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
Once the blogs got hold of Holdren's book, the White House immediately released a statement from Holdren denying that he still embraces those ideals.
Do you believe Holdren and the White House denials? These are the facts: Holdren co-wrote the book Ecoscience. He studied the practice of Eugenics (improving the population through controlled breeding). You can find Ecoscienceon Amazon.com.
Do you really believe that Holdren no longer embraces those population control ideals because he now works for the Obama administration?
Please take the time to read the health care reform bill for yourself before Obama rams it through Congress.
Yesterday, Cambridge police released the tapes of the 911 call that set up the confrontation between a Harvard professor and a cop that made national headlines.
Contrary to media reports, the caller did not mention the race of the two men that a neighbor thought she saw breaking into professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates' Harvard-owned house on July 16. She also didn't mention the word "backpacks" during the call.
Most of you probably never would have heard about this local matter if Barack Obama had not decided to make a racial issue out of it without knowing any of the facts.
The police reports posted on SmokingGun.com clearly shows a belligerent, pompous Skip Gates verbally abusing Sgt. James Crowley for doing his job. "Do You know who I am?" Gates shouted when Crowley asked to see his ID to prove he resided at that address.
When Sgt. Crowley informed Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in at that address, Gates asked, "Why, because I'm a black man in America?" Gates also demanded to know if Sgt. Crowley knew who he was messing with. Witnesses would later say it was almost as if Gates wanted to be arrested.
Gates heaped verbal abuse on Sgt. Crowley, calling him a racist for doing his job. Gates even hurled an insult at Sgt. Crowley's mother as he followed the officer outside and onto the porch. If anyone was exhibiting racist behavior it was Gates.
Obama didn't know any of these facts before sticking his foot in his mouth by referring to the Cambridge police as "acting stupidly."
Maybe Gates prefers that police not investigate any more calls of possible break-ins at at his home.
No, Rihanna wasn't shooting an umbrella ad yesterday. She was out & about in NYC taking in the sights. RiRi and her bodyguard (who was hired by Jay Z) made a stop a Bloomingdales and fast food spot Golden Crust. Yes, this is how a DIVA dresses when she's just chilling because she knows all eyes are on her at all times. Pseudo-celebs and other wannabe's should take notes. Photo: INF DAILY
I recive a lot of emails from clueless individuals asking why I am so negative toward their president Barack Obama. When I try to explain why a pathological liar and narcissist is dangerous for this country, they ignore me and instead, continue to defend him.
Here is a well-written comment left on the politically neutral blog Politico.com last week. It outlines exactly why some of us feel Obama is the wrong man to run this country. Some of you had better open your eyes or there won't be a free country left for your children to raise their children.
President Obama's first act was an order to shut down Guantanamo with no plan on what to do with the terrorists incarcerated there. In his campaign he said that he would change the way things were done in Washington; instead of banning lobbyists and career politicians he introduced an administration composed of people who were accepted as financial heads when they didn't even pay their taxes. A promise to reach across the aisle has turned into a policy of exclusion for the opposition.
We are told that spending of bailout funds will be well documented and we find out there is zero control or record of where $700 billion has been spent and the original problem of subprime mortgages is worse and banks are taking billions of our money while not fixing the problem. We are panicked into a $787 billion Stimulus which we are assured will hold unemployment below the 8% which would happen without this stimulus, and instead the 8% we tried to avoid is suddenly 9.5% and rising.
We are asked to give up our health insurance and choice of doctors for a far more expensive and government controlled health plan which will dictate our care and ration care to those the government decides need it most.
This has been a dismal record and the decisions made seem to continue to be made irregardless of the facts, the affordability or even the expected outcome even when estimates of failure are given by those within the administration. The desired result in each situation is not improvement of any problem, the desire is to take advantage of the problem to gain control. From banks to car companies the object is control. Huge carbon taxes have no useful objective except control. Establishing a far more expensive health system that offers poorer care has no advantage except to those who want to control another huge chunk of our lives.
The objective is to solidify control. Laws allowing unions to avoid secret ballots or to establish mandatory government arbitration are meant to unionize the majority of the workforce and gain more control. Allowing amnesty for illegal immigrants is a plan to add them to voter's lists to gain control. This is an undeniable theme which permeates this administration. They do not care that each of these things adversely affect everyone in the country, they do not care that these initiatives will destroy the economy. The only concern is that they be done to gain control.
As more and more people realize that they are getting the exact opposite of what they voted for, the faster Obama's numbers will drop. The question is will it be fast enough to save the country.
There's no chance that Barack Obama's universal health care initiative will get the votes needed to pass any time soon. But in the event that the bill does (by some miracle) make it through Congress, here's who ObamaCare will hurt the most:
Your elderly relatives:
Anyone over 65 in need of life-saving surgery will be offered the euthanasia option instead
The disabled and infirmed:
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuele's brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, is a "top health advisor" to Obama and holds two key positions within the Obama administration. Dr. Emanuel thinks doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously in upholding their duty to care for the elderly and disabled with little regard to the cost. Dr. Emanuel believes that "communitarianism" should dictate who gets treatment as a means of cutting costs.
He believes medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled and those who have a better chance of recovering to become productive citizens. For instance, patients with dementia (people who the Obama administration refers to as "mentally retarded") can not be expected to contribute to society, and therefore would not be approved for any costly surgery. Instead, the government would recommend euthanasia. Go here to read more.
