Well, it has been an interesting few weeks of news. In the past few weeks, the president wrote an executive order that essentially says (see link here), “This policy establishes “National Essential Functions,” prescribes continuity requirements for all executive departments and agencies, and provides guidance for State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector organizations in order to ensure a comprehensive and integrated national continuity program that will enhance the credibility of our national security posture and enable a more rapid and effective response to and recovery from a national emergency” In other words, without the legalese the President has the authority to declare martial law in order to coordinate “national resources” both public and private stave off critical falls of the economy and to centralize authority…
It has been an interesting few weeks, a team of foreign nations planned to blow up the fuel line of JFK International Airport (see link here), and if that is not enough, we have an immigration bill (see link here) that looks like the best compromise, because both extremes of the political aisle hate it,. But, upon further review it has some major flaws that need to be addressed before its passage. For instance, the twenty-four background check should be expanded to ninety-six hours (four business work days) to verify a person’s identity and criminal history. This will enable official the opportunity to full assess an alien criminal history and status….
It has been an interesting few weeks, while the immigration bill is being debated more American soldiers are killed and Scooter Libby has been sentenced to 30 months to a federal prison for his part in “outing” Valerie Plame—a CIA operative. No matter how one spins it, he lied to investigators to cover not only his action but others (see link here)…
Yes, it has been an interesting few weeks, watching Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Britney Spears provide excellent examples of culture of relativity with our own society….
Yes, it has been an interesting few weeks, where “enemy combatants” are being released (see link here)…..
Yes, it has been interesting few weeks, with again Paris Hilton jailed—then released—then jailed once more in the matter of days (see link here)….
Yes, it has been interesting few weeks, where the National Right to Life (NRL) separated itself from the Colorado Right to Life (CRL). The NRL felt that the CRL has embarrassed of their major ambassadors—James Dobson of the Focus on the Family (FOF). The CRL felt betrayed because they believe that Dobson misrepresented the ruling, by the US Supreme Court, on partial-birth abortion. They, the CRL believe that alls abortions should be banned and the US Supreme Court ruling ought to have been ruled so. Thus, the CRL criticized Dobson, in print, saying that he was providing false hope by accepting incremental restrictions. Yes, the fractionalization of Christianity will get more severe before its correction (see link here)…..
Yes, it has been an interesting few weeks, the Colorado Rockies are above .500 for the first time since the beginning of the baseball season (see link here). And, the summer heat of Colorado has taken hold. After all, it just another day in paradise and life has been righted….
