  • Scott Walker Endorses Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants at Private GOP Dinner

    If a journalist were to report that three anonymous sources claim the sky is blue, I’d go look for myself. That’s how little I trust journalists and their anonymous sources.

    Don’t be so gullible!

    Besides, I lived in Milwaukee county during the pension scandal. Scott Walker got in as county exec because of some corrupt Democrats. I watched him battle the county board every year he was there, until he got elected Governor.

    And then I watched him battle the WI democrat party and the teachers unions.

    To all those claiming that Scott Walker is squishy, or a RINO, or a sell-out, or pro-amnesty, or GOPe, I am telling you that you don’t know Scott Walker.

    I heard that one last night from a friend who is a leftist.

    I asked her what she knew about Obama's college years, his grades, his senior thesis, etc. She admitted she knew nothing. So I asked, if Obama's academic achievements weren't important to you when you voted for him, why are Governor Walker's academic achievements important to you now?

  • Over 100 Measles Vaccine Deaths, Zero Measles Deaths, Since ’04

    02/17/2015 7:01:09 AM PST · 26 of 79
    Monitor to Bogey78O
    If you want to stop the deaths, work to eliminate the disease rather than dragging heel and prolonging it.

    +1!

    Immunize the world and eliminate the disease from the planet, and once the disease is gone you can eliminate the vaccine.

    100 deaths over a decade is 10 per year. Compared to? From the article: "However, by 1955, with advances in medicine and huge progress in sanitation, nutrition, and living standards, those rates steadily declined from 1900 levels by almost 98 percent to a mere 0.03 deaths per 100,000. The vaccine was introduced in 1963, and by then, measles was almost a non-problem in the developed world."

    So let's do some math for the anti-vax morons in the audience. The current population of the US is 320,206,000, divided by 100,000, times 0.03 deaths per, equals: 96 deaths per year.

    So, 96 deaths a year due to lack of a vaccine? A "non-problem", but 100 deaths due to a vaccination? A HUGE problem!

    Now, that said, I think the anti-vaxxers should be allowed to not vaccinate their children. But I also think that any public and private place should have the right to refuse admittance to anyone who cannot prove they have been vaccinated. Let Darwin rule! Let the stupid people sacrifice their own offspring to their alter of paranoia! For the log-term sake of mankind, let the stupid people off themselves.

    Just like Governor Walker, I can also "envision a world where with the right penalties and waiting periods and meet the requirements where those people could get citizenship." That is, go home, go to the end of the legal immigration line, apply, and wait your turn like everybody else.

    I believe that she said the hacks were made to be obvious with the main purpose to intimidate her.

    I'm a software engineer. On multiple occasions over the years I have witnessed my own computers doing very similar things to what hers is doing in her poorly shot video (landscape, not portrait!).

    In every case, it was caused by a hardware problem. Either the keyboard just went bad, or I had recently spilled something into the keyboard, or something was pressing keys on a wirelessly (and out of sight/mind) connected keyboard.

    At no time did it turn out to be that my computer had been hacked.

    If I had hacked into her computer for the purposes of intimidating her, I'd have sent:

    Command-A (select all)
    Command-X (cut)
    We are watching you!
    Command-A (select all)
    Command-V (paste)

    In her case, it looks like Command-Z (two keys which are kitty-corner from each other on both my Macbook, and the bluetooth keyboard I use with it) is being held down (undo), so all of her previous typing and formatting gets undone.

    I got no further than this misrepresentation: "A dozen years ago, Congress authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq to prevent the regime of then-dictator Saddam Hussein from posing a threat to this country with weapons of mass destruction we later discovered he did not have."

    Congress authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq for a whole host of reasons:

    Begun and held at the City of Washington on Wednesday, the twenty-third day of January, two thousand and two Joint Resolution

    To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq.

    Whereas in 1990 in response to Iraq's war of aggression against and illegal occupation of Kuwait, the United States forged a coalition of nations to liberate Kuwait and its people in order to defend the national security of the United States and enforce United Nations Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq;

    Whereas after the liberation of Kuwait in 1991, Iraq entered into a United Nations sponsored cease-fire agreement pursuant to which Iraq unequivocally agreed, among other things, to eliminate its nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons programs and the means to deliver and develop them, and to end its support for international terrorism;

    Whereas the efforts of international weapons inspectors, United States intelligence agencies, and Iraqi defectors led to the discovery that Iraq had large stockpiles of chemical weapons and a large scale biological weapons program, and that Iraq had an advanced nuclear weapons development program that was much closer to producing a nuclear weapon than intelligence reporting had previously indicated;

    Whereas Iraq, in direct and flagrant violation of the cease-fire, attempted to thwart the efforts of weapons inspectors to identify and destroy Iraq's weapons of mass destruction stockpiles and development capabilities, which finally resulted in the withdrawal of inspectors from Iraq on October 31, 1998;

    Whereas in Public Law 105-235 (August 14, 1998), Congress concluded that Iraq's continuing weapons of mass destruction programs threatened vital United States interests and international peace and security, declared Iraq to be in `material and unacceptable breach of its international obligations' and urged the President `to take appropriate action, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of the United States, to bring Iraq into compliance with its international obligations';

    Whereas Iraq both poses a continuing threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region and remains in material and unacceptable breach of its international obligations by, among other things, continuing to possess and develop a significant chemical and biological weapons capability, actively seeking a nuclear weapons capability, and supporting and harboring terrorist organizations;

    Whereas Iraq persists in violating resolution of the United Nations Security Council by continuing to engage in brutal repression of its civilian population thereby threatening international peace and security in the region, by refusing to release, repatriate, or account for non-Iraqi citizens wrongfully detained by Iraq, including an American serviceman, and by failing to return property wrongfully seized by Iraq from Kuwait;

    Whereas the current Iraqi regime has demonstrated its capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people;

    Whereas the current Iraqi regime has demonstrated its continuing hostility toward, and willingness to attack, the United States, including by attempting in 1993 to assassinate former President Bush and by firing on many thousands of occasions on United States and Coalition Armed Forces engaged in enforcing the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council;

    Whereas members of al Qaida, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq;

    Whereas Iraq continues to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations, including organizations that threaten the lives and safety of United States citizens;

    Whereas the attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001, underscored the gravity of the threat posed by the acquisition of weapons of mass destruction by international terrorist organizations;

    Whereas Iraq's demonstrated capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction, the risk that the current Iraqi regime will either employ those weapons to launch a surprise attack against the United States or its Armed Forces or provide them to international terrorists who would do so, and the extreme magnitude of harm that would result to the United States and its citizens from such an attack, combine to justify action by the United States to defend itself;

    Whereas United Nations Security Council Resolution 678 (1990) authorizes the use of all necessary means to enforce United Nations Security Council Resolution 660 (1990) and subsequent relevant resolutions and to compel Iraq to cease certain activities that threaten international peace and security, including the development of weapons of mass destruction and refusal or obstruction of United Nations weapons inspections in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 687 (1991), repression of its civilian population in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 688 (1991), and threatening its neighbors or United Nations operations in Iraq in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 949 (1994);

    Whereas in the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution (Public Law 102-1), Congress has authorized the President `to use United States Armed Forces pursuant to United Nations Security Council Resolution 678 (1990) in order to achieve implementation of Security Council Resolution 660, 661, 662, 664, 665, 666, 667, 669, 670, 674, and 677';

    Whereas in December 1991, Congress expressed its sense that it `supports the use of all necessary means to achieve the goals of United Nations Security Council Resolution 687 as being consistent with the Authorization of Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution (Public Law 102-1),' that Iraq's repression of its civilian population violates United Nations Security Council Resolution 688 and `constitutes a continuing threat to the peace, security, and stability of the Persian Gulf region,' and that Congress, `supports the use of all necessary means to achieve the goals of United Nations Security Council Resolution 688';

    Whereas the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-338) expressed the sense of Congress that it should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove from power the current Iraqi regime and promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime;

    Whereas on September 12, 2002, President Bush committed the United States to `work with the United Nations Security Council to meet our common challenge' posed by Iraq and to `work for the necessary resolutions,' while also making clear that `the Security Council resolutions will be enforced, and the just demands of peace and security will be met, or action will be unavoidable';

    Whereas the United States is determined to prosecute the war on terrorism and Iraq's ongoing support for international terrorist groups combined with its development of weapons of mass destruction in direct violation of its obligations under the 1991 cease-fire and other United Nations Security Council resolutions make clear that it is in the national security interests of the United States and in furtherance of the war on terrorism that all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions be enforced, including through the use of force if necessary;

    Whereas Congress has taken steps to pursue vigorously the war on terrorism through the provision of authorities and funding requested by the President to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such persons or organizations;

    Whereas the President and Congress are determined to continue to take all appropriate actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such persons or organizations;
