I believe that a leading relativist and progressive, John Dewey, in 1927 was as wrong as he could be when he stated:
"The belief in political fixity, of the sanctity of some form of state consecrated by the efforts of our fathers and hallowed by tradition, is one of the stumbling-blocks in the way of orderly and directed change."
As this approach was gradually adopted by this country's law schools the pillars of the foundation of our nation were eroded and the nation started to become a nation of men and not one of law. The only good I see is that this new theory of relativism increases the business of the legal system and their income. If the foundations of the law keep shifting like the sands in the desert then the arguments defending one position versus another are infinite and can change from day to day or case to case. A nation with this kind of foundation is bound to crumble into a mound of dust in time.

When this type of moral relativism is applied to the law it is called "legal positivism." This "legal positivism" is characterized by the following points:
- There are no God given standards of law and if perchance there might be they are not relevant in a modern legal system.
- Since God does not give us law or rights the author must be man (government) and what it gives it can also take away or change in any manner it wishes. The state is therefore the highest human authority.
- Since all of the elite know that both man and society evolve, law and its interpretation must also evolve;so no solid framework on which society can be sure that will not change exists and the whim of man or the state is final.
- Judges through their decisions on evolutionary law control the system.
- The study of judges (men/women) and not original foundations of the legal system becomes the study of law. In other words we go from a country of LAW to a country of MEN/WOMEN.

I profess that in the area of socio-economic security another law analogous to the Law of Conservation of Energy exists; this law is the Law of Conservation of Socio-Economic Security. The first law mentioned can be proven mathematically and by experiment; the second one, at this time in history, I believe can only be proven true based on the study of human nature and mankinds' history.
Total, perfect, socio-economic security never did exist and it never will exist. When an individual or a government proclaims that we are totally safe they are not telling you the truth because of at least two reasons:
- There are too many variables, known and unknown, to make this make this kind of definitive declaration.
- Within the current existing market system, security can be granted (even in an imperfect manner) to some entities. Examples might be banks to big to fail, industries to big to fail, GM, and other sectors of the economic world which "planners" deem to big to fail...Fannie and Fredi Mac. At first thought this might seem to be a great idea but after a little thought we all must come to the conclusion that with each guarantee "not to fail" we as non-inclusive groups or as non-inclusive individuals loose bit-by-bit, increment by increment some of our security, liberty and freedom. The government does not possess enough "stuff" to guarantee a "non-failure policy" for each of us.

What really is astonishing and saddening is that some faculty members of the U of I at Chicago are considering to ask the board of trustees to reconsider its unanimous decision to not grant Bill Ayers emeritus status. What this indicates to me is what I have always thought to be true, namely that a majority of Universities and Colleges have been infiltrated over the last 50 to 75 years by liberal, progressive...some actually bordering on or actually advocating communist or Maoist models for this country. I think this event has loosened that cap on the bottle that is holding in the philosophy of collectivism and central all inclusive planning and the American people will see it as it is...a plan to fundamentally change America....to bury it. Wake up America or it will be too late.

The problem began not over 200 years ago but in 1947 with the coupling of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Bill of Rights by the Everson Court. The Rule adopted by a previous Supreme Court of the United States in interpreting the 14th Amendment ...makes it inapplicable to the religious liberty or any other right of the citizen as determined by the state of which he is resident. (see the cases of Paul vs. Virginia (8 Wallace, p. 168), and of New Orleans Slaughter-house (16 Wallace, p. 36) which laid down the above principle).
Justice William Douglas, in 1970 "openly acknowledged that by coupling the Fourteenth Amendment and the Bill of Rights, the Court had not only usurped state authority over many areas but that it also created an American revolution that...*

However, we are forgetting one aspect of the human condition and that decisions, truly human decisions have to take place in a specific set of variables that all the computers in the world cannot do. We as individuals or groups of individuals must have the "freedom in everything which depends on the circumstances of time and place, because only the individuals concerned in each instance can fully know these circumstances and adapt their actions to them."*
With absolute central planning, absolute rules concerning the nature of decisions must also be implemented and in doing that we slowly but eventually give up our abilities to make independent decisions and in doing so eventually loose our freedom and liberty. This does not happen all at once but only in small increments, little nudges that are hardly perceptible until we find ourselves enslaved. This "nudging" has been going on since the early 1900s and is slowly escalating...maybe even not so slowly escalating...I could be wrong. Watch, see, listen and be alert before its too late to turn back.

What folly; how can Israel deal with the Arab world when since 1917 the Arab world has not kept their side of agreements. This is a waste of time and just enables the agenda of the Arab world to make slow steady progress by continuing their modus operandi and slowly weakening Israel through the use of the "peace talks offence". At some point in time, the U.S. has to draw a line in the sand and say "Enough"! Both parties must live up to the agreements or they are not worth a damn or the shifting political sand and economic policies which have been very generous to parts of the Arab world...the give away of vast sums of American dollars to the partner that does not keep its agreement will be stopped.
When are we, the U.S. going to stop doing dumb things again and again which have never worked in the past and will not change until the political infrastructure in the Arab world changes. Withholding the money may force those political changes to take place...money talks...peace talks walk.

Mr. Robinson says that the Expectations of the new president were absurdly high. I agree with the absurdly but who promoted and pushed those Expectations?.....the national media and then candidate Obama's own campaign staff. There was all sort of rhetorical flourish and promises for CHANGE and HOPE and transparency in his new administration. I have not seen much of that as reflected in Pres. Obama's approval ratings; in fact they seem to be nosediving even further.
Mr. Robinson goes on to further state that Pres. Obama should be given credit in at least four areas:
- The pull out of the last U.S. Combat Troops in Iraq
- The bail out of General Motors to the tune of $50 billion dollars
- The containment of the Gulf oil spill.
- The President's statement at the Ramadan dinner in regards to the mosque controversy.
In regards to #2: the creation of "Government Motors" with the government owning 61% of the company; was this truly a move to save the company that did not deserve to be saved because of a poor business plan or was it a gift to the United Auto Workers Union for all that labor did to get the President elected.
In regards to #3: the circus that followed the oil spill and the deaths of eleven oil rig workers, if it was not such a sad and massive catastrophe, could be viewed at best as the government bureaucracy working at its best to get in the way of actions by BP, the State and private citizens to clean up the mess. To date the scientific authorities believe that at least 80% of the oil is still in the Gulf...so much for containment.
In regards to #4: It is of interest that the President stated his or I should say the U.S. Constitution's stance on the "mosque at ground zero" issue before a group of Muslims to supposedly gain the "high ground" on this issue but would not discuss his personal opinion, to the rank and file American community, regarding the appropriateness and wisdom of an element of the Muslim community which is pushing the building of this Muslim mosque and center.
These are the reasons that I disagree with Mr. Robinson. President Obama is not due any overdue credit at this time. Let time and history be the judge of his Presidency and decisions.

We left Pier 5 at 0830. Lost sight of the Golden Gate at 0843. We stayed on course of 240 degrees all day and night. We average a speed of 16 knots. I stood the 0800 to 1200 watch.
Sunday, Oct. 29, 1944...
I stood the 1200 to 1600 watch today. We didn't pick up a single target. There are plenty of seasick fellows aboard. I didn't have much of an appetite. I didn't eat dinner. I stood the 1600 to 2000 watch. Talk is that we are bound for New Guinea. I ate a light meal this evening. The sea is very rough.
Monday, Oct. 30, 1944...
Got up at 0530. I stood the 0800 to 1200 watch. Didn't eat any breakfast. A lot of the fellows are still seasick. I haven't been seasick as of yet although I didn't feel any too good. I ate 3 sandwiches and 3 apples for dinner. I feel pretty good. The sea is still rough. We are about 1/3 of the way to Honolulu. All evening I read a book entitled "Assignment in Brittany". An interesting story. I retired early.
Tuesday, Oct. 31, 1944...
I got up at 0330. I stood the 0400 to 0800 watch. A ship (cargo vessel) which was 30 hours behind us was torpedoed last night. It was on the same route as we were. After torpedoing the ship the submarine surfaced and shelled it. As a result the ship was sunk with half the crew missing. We are traveling ourselves as we have no escort. We had a fire in Number One hold at 1100. It was under control at 1130. I stood watch from 1800 to 2000. It is getting warmer every day."

Over the last 60 plus years, Israel has been rewarded, by the Arab world, with nothing in return except more violence and more killing and more vitriol. Rational people and governments eventually reach a point when they have an epiphany; you can't deal with the other side until they have a conversion, a change of heart. Until that time comes nothing will change for the better and our President is intelligent enough to know that fact.

Today another storm is gathering in this country; a storm of direction, a storm which will determine weather we continue to follow the path and foundations and principles which our Founding Fathers laid out in the Constitution of the United States or one that is made up to fulfill the whims and fancies of the politically elite. Will our country continue to be a country of law or a country of men who can warp and corrupt it in the so-called name of "progress"; who can change that which we call good and virtuous into bad and evil. If those who promote and proselytize win the battle for moral relativism in this country I believe we will loose the Republic which our Founders gave to us and will dishonor all those who gave their last in the aforementioned storms.

Moving forward in time to 2009 in Cairo, in a speech, President Obama then stated that, in part, Israel existed because of the Jewish suffering in the Holocoust and that Palestinian people including Muslims and Christians have suffered in trying to establish a homeland also. The equivalency of these two diverging statements I believe does not exist at the same level. This White House thinks differently about the State of Israel; considerably different than all previous administrations.
Israel with its deep history of nationhood extending back to the time of King David, 3000 years ago and even before that another 1000 to 1500 years is beyond unintelligible to the current Obama Adminstration. American liberals and progressives will never be able to understand or put themselves in the shoes of the people and the State of Israel. I believe this is a point in time, a tipping point, in our relationship with Israel.

According to this provision of the U.S. Constitution every American has the right NOT to be subject to any federal law unless reviewed, scrutinized and approved by a majority of the peoples representatives. This process however has be eroded since the late 19th and early 20th Century and to the present day.
This process of legislative action has been circumvented by the use of the use of the Presidential Executive Orders and a newer tactic by the appointment of Czars to manage and control various sensitive areas in government and the private sector; these Czars seem to be answerable to only the President and by the use of them and executive orders the Executive circumvents the intent of the U.S. Constitution and the Founding Fathers. It seems that in Washington D.C. the government looks on the Constitution as a historical document that really does not matter any more. Situational legislation is practiced both by the Congress and the President and if a serious problem or crisis contrived or true is present it makes this end run around the Constitution even more easy.
The people of this country should be crying out loud "FOUL" and every time this tactic is used it should be challenged and taken to the Federal Courts and if needed to the Supreme Court. This type of legislation by idea logs must be stopped or this country and its Constitution will disintegrate.

The Treaty Of Versailles
On June 28, 1919, the First World War officially came to an end when France and Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles with the Allies. The German delegation, which had been forced to sign the punitive agreement, signaled their attitude by breaking the ceremonial pen.
The treaty required Germany to pay such onerous reparations to the victors that the country was impoverished for the next two decades. The terms were regarded with such bitterness in Germany that many historians believe they were directly responsible for the rise of Nazism and World War II.
One little footnote that has been almost forgotten: President Woodrow Wilson, the most powerful person at that conference, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1920 for his efforts there. As Henry Kissinger could testify, it would not be the last time the 'peace' prize had very little to do with achieving a just and lasting peace.

"In all lawful governments, the designation of the persons who are to bear rule being an natural and necessary a part as the form of the government itself, and that which had its establishment ORIGINALLY FROM THE PEOPLE...all commonwealths, therefore, with the form of government established, have rules also of appointing and conveying the right to those who are to have any share in the public authority; and whoever into the exercise of any part of the power by other ways than what the laws of the community have prescribed hath no right to be obeyed, though the form of the commonwealth be still preserved, since he is not the person THE PEOPLE HAVE CONSENTED TO. Nor can such an usurper, or any deriving from him, ever have a title till the PEOPLE ARE BOTH AT LIBERTY TO CONSENT, AND HAVE ACTUALLY CONSENTED, to allow and confirm in him the power he hath till then usurped."

It was thought and hoped by the Founding Fathers that the Senators appointed by state legislatures would be representing the states as sovereign entities. Senators would then not have to be compelled to involve themselves in the popular sometimes frivolous issues of the electorate and could concentrate on protection of states' rights, maintaining the established order, balancing the budget, and keeping taxes low as possible. It was also hoped they could keep the tempestuousness of the House at a more moderate level. They were to be the deliberate more long term "thinkers" of the Congress, our elder more wise statesmen. I think that the Founding Fathers had the right idea especially after viewing what a circus like atmosphere we have now in both the House and Senate.
For those of you who may not be up on the Amendments to the
US Constitution I will state the two provisions of the Seventeenth Amendment.
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, elected to a six-year term by the people thereof; and each Senator shall have one vote.
When a Senate seat becomes vacant for any reason, the governor of that state shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancy; however, the legislature of any state may empower the governor to make a temporary appointment until the people fill the vacancy by an election as the legislature shall direct.
We shall discuss the implications of this amendment in my next blog as to how it diminishes the states rights and balance with the federal government.

In the beginning of the contest with Britain, when we were sensible of
danger, we had daily prayers in this room for divine protection. Our prayers,
sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged
in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending
Providence in our favor. To that kind of Providence we owe this happy
opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future
national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we
imagine that we no longer need (His) assistance?
God's Providence was certainly in evidence at the beginning of this nation and it is certainly needed at this time of peril.
" I, therefore, beg leave to move:
"That hereafter prayers, imploring the assistance of Heaven and its blessing on our deliberations, held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the clergy of this city be requested to officiate in that service."
Revisionist historians have painted the Founding Fathers as best Deists and at worse self-serving selfish beings concerned with their own welfare. Do the above statements sound like the Founding Fathers were Godless, non God fearing men...by no means. Read your original sources...not commentary by revisionist historians who are working towards their own agenda. They wound up not having daily prayers in the AM at the beginning of business not because they did not want to but because the colonies had not considered it in the budget....clergymen in Philadelphia were paid for their services daily. Things turned out pretty well...I guess God did not consider paid for prayers necessary but only the goodness in the hearts and souls of the founders.

Perhaps it was not on your required reading list at law school but I invite you to stroll over to the Library of Congress, if you were able to get a library card in light of the sparsity of your identification documents, and pick up a copy of The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States, by Benjamin F. Morris, and published by American Vision Press, Powder Springs, Georgia. This 1060 page tome, which took over 12 years to research and write, gives original sources of proof that establishes the Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States dating back to the first settlements in the 1600s. Indirectly since much of the reasoning used in establishing these early civil institutions and codes and behavior were taken from the Christian bible which I am sure you must know includes the Old Testament, Judaic elements were also included in the earliest civil life and settlements of this country.
It is true that we are a nation of many religions but our Founders and the leaders who formulated civil life and institutions in the 1600s used Judeo-Christian values in doing so. Do yourself a favor and read it; I believe it will broaden your vision of the United States and give you and more realistic perspective of who we are.

Facing a plague of murders, kidnappings and criminal mayhem, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a simple, no-nonsense bill into state law that would help secure Arizona's southern border.
Within hours, even though he had not read the law, Barack Obama had the audacity to call it "misguided" and "irresponsible." He said: “And I want everyone, American and Mexican, to know my administration is taking a very close look at the Arizona law. We’re examining any implications...." Obama added: "I’ve directed my Justice Department to ... look very carefully at the language of this law to see whether it comports both with our core values and existing legal standards...."
"Taking a very close look...?" ... has anyone in the administration even bothered "to look very carefully at the language of this law?”
It appears not.
Attorney General Eric Holder confessed recently that he has not read the Arizona law; and yet, his "Justice Department" is going to fight it tooth-and-nail. The head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, admits that she has not read it; and yet, ICE is indicating that it will not cooperate with Arizona on enforcement of the law.
How can you "examine" the "implications" of a law if you refuse to read it?
Of course, if they had bothered to read it, perhaps they would understand that Arizona’s law closely mirrors the federal immigration statutes already on the books. The difference is that Arizona, unlike the federal government, actually plans to enforce it.
Senator Sessions even went so far as to accuse the Obama Administration of “nullifying existing law.” Senator Sessions is understating the argument. The Obama Administration isn't simply "nullifying the law." The Obama Administration is actively fighting it.
And this arrogant and egregious dereliction of duty must stop... TODAY.

The best answer they came up with was the Constitution of the United States. It harnessed the powers of the Federal Government within the confines of a strictly interpreted Constitution. If the Constitution was malleable and easily changeable it would destroy the freedom it was designed to preserve.
"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence - it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
(Quoted in Jacop M. Braude, Lifetime Speaker's Encyclopedia, 2 vols. , Englewood Cliffs, N. J.: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1962, 1:326)
This is reflected in what Thomas Jefferson said:
I, however, place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.
(Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 15:47.)
Why is Mr. Obama pursuing a course 180 degrees opposite to what Thomas Jefferson recommended? Ask yourself that question; any rational answers?
Mr. Jefferson made a particular point about the immorality of passing on debt to ones children:
"That we are bound to defray (the wars) expenses within our own time, and unauthorized to burden posterity with them, I suppose to have been proved in my former letter... We shall all consider our-selves morally bound to pay them ourselves; and consequently within the life (expectancy) of the majority ... We must raise, then ourselves the money for this war, either by taxes within the year or by loans ; and if by loans, we must repay them ourselves, proscribing forever the English practice of perpetual funding. (Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 13:357-358.)
Why does the administration and congress seem to have forgotten these words of wisdom?

That glaring fallacy was and still is that the people cannot empower their government with powers which they themselves do not have a natural lawful right to themselves. A proper assignment of power given to the government by the people would be the creation of a fire department; to protect life and their property. An example of an improper granting of a power to a government would be for example; the government surveys families in an area and finds that 50% of the families in this area has two TVs and the other 50% has none. Then in the name of beneficence or call it warped "social justice", a new name for Marxism, the government creates an immoral but legal law that orders the families with two TV to give one of their TVs to a family with none all in the name of "spreading the wealth and goods around" in an equitable manner. The problem with this is that the "people" do not have the right to empower their government with this power to confiscate personal property and give it to those who don't have it; not if you believe in natural law and reason. Only anarchists or Marxists would propose such a redistribution of the wealth and goods that belong to other people who obtained it legally. If you gave it to your neighbor in an act of charity...fine...no problem. Marxism, social justice and spreading the wealth around can be dangerous because the devil is in the details of how it is done. Stay allert!

Thomas Jefferson wrote:
"The maxim of buying nothing without the money in our pockets to pay for it would make our country one of the happiest on earth. Experience during the (Revolutionary) war proved this; and I think every man will remember that,under all the privations it obliged him to submit to during that period, he slept sounder and awoke happier than he can do now." Ford, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 4:414.)
President Washington made it perfectly clear when he said in an address to Congress: "No pecuniary consideration is more urgent than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt; on none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of time more valuable."
President Obama, I guess you don't subscribe to these fundamental principals of these Founding Fathers of our country... that is a shame that will haunt us and our great, great grandchildren.

"The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE."

So they had similar problems way back in 1776; our American experiment continues and with Providence and the spirit of the American People it will continue and improve as long as we keep to the principals that this Republic was founded on.
The Public Order Act was introduced in 1986 to tackle violent rioters and football hooligans but now is being used to stop religious free speech.
Are we on the administration's agenda to have "special laws" (unconstitutional ones) for special groups that will add badly needed votes (voting blocks) to win close elections? Somehow I feel that we are; how about you?

The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World by W. Cleon Skousen of the National Center for Constitutional Studies.
You can Google it and probably find many sources where it can be purchased. It will open your eyes, mind and heart. They may even have it in the local library or can get it for you on loan from a neighboring library.

They answer only to Obama and he (Obama) has appointed nearly 40 of them. To me this seems to be a government within a government. Here are a few just to give you the flavor of this: health reform czar, border czar, counter terrorism czar, urban czar, global warming czar, domestic violence czar, stimulus accountability czar, Eurasian energy czar, Great Lakes czar, safe schools czar. These czars have never been elected, nor confirmed by the Senate but still have immense over our government and each of us in our daily lives.
Where in the US Constitution are such positions authorized and the President authorized to create and endow these individuals with this power and responsibility without accountability to no one except Obama?
I am truly concerned about what President Obama's agenda is in creating a "government within a government".
What do you think? I would appreciate your insight.

Please respond and let me know if you know what this document's name is. I'll give you a "hint" the first word of the name starts with a "P".

- tax dollars will be used to pay for abortions; the executive order signed by Obama is not worth the paper its written on and will not stop the largest expansion of abortions that will be seen
- health insurance premiums will rise by as much as 13% according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)
- small business will be stifled and will reduce jobs or forgo any thought of hiring new people to fill new positions
- the Federal Government however will GROW by at least 16,000 new IRS Agents (at a minimal cost of $10 billion) to be the enforcement branch of this new piece of entitlement; just what we want, more government on our backs to make sure they get paid or they will fine, levy or I would not be surprised if they would prosecute some and imprison them. I guess this is what President Obama meant by CHANGE and SPREADING THE WEALTH.
So when you go to the polls in November think of these things before you vote and ask yourself is this the direction that you want your country to go? The future of your country, your and yours children's' liberties may depend on your choice.

Social justice can be obtained only in respecting the transcendent dignity of man. The person represents the ultimate end of society, which is ordered to him: the late John Paul II said,
What is at stake is the dignity of the human person, whose defense and promotion have been entrusted to us by the Creator, and to whom the men and women at every moment of history are strictly and responsibly in debt.
In the Declaration of Independence it states that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. No where in this document or in the Constitution does it state also an inalienable right to health care; if the government, with the consent of the governed wishes to create such a legislative policy it may do so if done in a lawful and legitimate matter. If it does so the government does not confer a new human right on its citizens it simply creates a new entitlement program for them. Rights are intrinsic to the human nature of created beings freely given to them by their creator. Words and concepts are important don't confuse political policy with intrinsic human rights or some day you may find yourself in the chains of slavery and subjugation of your government....it is designed to happen slowly over many years so that no one notices it until the chains are firmly placed and locked...and then it may be too late.
Judge politicians and all men not by just what they may say at any certain time in their lifetime but by the actions that they take and if the actions are moral and consistent with our Founding Fathers' principles and documents.
Above all be vigilant and always be aware of liars and stand up to them and call them on their lies...otherwise we may loose this Republic.

ACORN's funding and its reputation was hit hard by several reports of alleged voter fraud and embezzlement and a video which was wide spread.
Based on the video and the alleged voter fraud Congress pulled federal funding and private donors have backed away from the organization.
But will they really close down or simply divide and multiply under a myriad of AKAs (also known as) organizations making it more difficult to track and follow the questionable activities of these new organizations. I suspect that even though the head of the snake has been cut off the remaining parts will still be up to mischief....will any of it be illegal?

In 2008 the Supreme Court struck down Washington D.C.'s handgun ban. On this coming Tuesday oral arguments will be presented to the Supreme Court to strike down the prohibition against law abiding Chicagoans from owning a handgun and keeping it in their home for self defence. We are not talking about concealed carry but just having a firearm in your home to protect yourself and your family. The case that will be presented is called McDonald v. City of Chicago. Why would anyone want to stop a law abiding citizen from defending his/her life, his/her families lives?
The attorneys general for Florida, Texas, Alaska, and 34 other states have urged the court to strike down Chicago 's gun ban. So have a majority of members of Congress and individual prosecutors from 34 California counties. What is it that these local mayors and small time politicians afraid off...could it be the realization that you, not govenment, are responsible for yourself and your family and that a lot of what they do is superfluous and unnecessary. If you don't have the fundamental right to defend your life you have nothing and the Constitution means nothing if this fundamental right is not upheld.

The Governor, Charlie Crist, said he would seek federal help in the investigation.
According to the surgeon general of Florida the state health department has done all it can.
I know it is an uncomfortable feeling not to have an answer but sometimes that is just the way it is; someday the technology and medical insight will develop to the point that an absolute cause-effect relationship can be determined. This does little to settle the hurt and devastation and loss to the people affected by this tragic occurrence.

Well it hasn't happened, now almost a year later, Fort Myers still has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation.....NO CHANGE. The unemployment rate has changed for the worse by increasing 2 percentage points to 13.8%...NO CHANGE EXCEPT NEGATIVE.
The $787 billion economic recovery plan NEVER CHANGED Fort Myers in a positive manner. So much for fulfilling CHANGE promises in a positive manner to the people of Fort Myers. The local failure reflects a expanding national dissatisfaction. His approval rating has dropped to 48% according to Gallup.
President Obama had better listen to the people or there will be a change at the helm of this country following the elections in 2012. He should start listening instead of blaming Pres. Bush and lecturing to the people, his boss, or he will be back in the classroom teaching law.
According to Cape Coral pilot, David Beauvois, "the government is so corrupt...what they really need to do is get the American military here to regulate like they do in Port-au-Prince." He also said that customs agents have been known to take the aid and keep it or sell it. The aid eventually did make its way to the orphanage after a multitude of hassles with Haitian officials and self appointed "officials?". If this is going on in just one part of the country you can imagine what the scale of corruption and graft is nation wide. Be careful to whom you donate money or goods too; make sure the charity is large enough and has enough clout to avoid this type of extortion.
