I say this to you…Muscle up America…because our feeble leadership has let us down to the point where massive violence seems to be the only way that members of the Democrat Party – and especially the thugs, charlatans, and people filled with corruption seem to take these very formative issues as though they were nothing.
Predicated upon the premise that “unenforced laws” are useless – we also believe there has been a coordinated effort on behalf of various advocacy / special interest groups to ensure that immigration, naturalization, and customs enforcement officials are literally unable to enforce laws that are already on the books; subsequently, equally at fault is the lack of our own Congressional officials to let conditions go unchanged year-after-year, decade after decade, and generation after generation.
From our Founding Fathers’ perspective, most, if not all, did not think freely immigrating to America was the most concise answer, either. In the late 18th century, the young republic needed a larger population and encouraged immigration, however not without using the proper rule of law.
Immigrant activists are rallying in the nation’s capital on Wednesday, and they are sending a specific message to Congress: quicken the pace of immigration reform.
Organizers estimate tens of thousands of people will gather in front of the Capitol in support of an immigration bill. That could present a stark visual to lawmakers considering whether to support a bill. But activists are also speaking directly to members of Congress and their staffs about their demands.
Over 1,100 members of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement attending this week’s rally are meeting or holding demonstrations at 76 congressional offices, according to spokeswoman Donna de la Cruz. Those include meetings with supporters of the bill, such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), and protests at opponents’ offices.
Activists who made the trip want members of Congress to speed up work on the bill.
“I think that they are making progress, but I do expect more of them. Let’s speed it up a little bit more,” said Evelyn Servin, a community organizer with the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, who traveled 18 hours to be at the rally. “I want more from them and I want to make sure our families are included in that.”
This is precisely the reason that we feel the passion that we do about “immigration reform.” These people have come to a country they see as being better than their own; and in fact, made their journeys in the most egregious ways possible.
Now because some lame brained public officials even mentioned the word(s) “pathway to citizenship” “undocumented workers” and “family reunification” we say nothing like a little carrot dangling in front of the donkey.
Essentially what the leaders of this nation have managed to get done are these issues: One, we are at the brink of war with a nuclear armed North Korea; it will not be much longer until the “Mighty Persian Empire” has successfully completed its mission of having more weapons than Israel and perhaps the U.S. could handle.
And here we are – ready to let 11-19 million immigrants obtain legal status and the family multiplier used for family reunification is 3 so ostensibly America is looking at legalizing from 33 -57 million immigrants from the start.
Now before I even go into the “Heinz 57” of you just name it…sexual orientation, identity disorder, gender disorder, LGBT individuals out there that despite confusing the devil out of everyone, yes, they too want their illegal partners to come to America. And the government stirs up caca around gun control.
Please do not confuse Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) with FAIR, The Federation of American Immigration Reform; one is a special interest group whilst the other is a reputable think tank.
It is now overwhelmingly obvious that the Obama Administration has been at work for quite some time seeing to it that the executive branch – rather than do what the majority of the American people want to have done – even Hispanics, Latinos, and everyone south of Mexico wants to see happen.
We at The Contemplative Thinker believe that this path or means to immigration reform has been conspired, planned, and orchestrated right in front of the American people and the entire world.
What can we, or any other citizen of the United States say about “FREEDOM” when our own President, Congressional Members, and special interest groups are enacting rules, policies, procedures, and/or bills and acts? We believe that this approach as ushered in by Senator Patrick Leahy as well as the POTUS is unconscionable. Here is what Thomas Jefferson had to say about it:
This is an interesting thought, if the government through its self-described “Inaction” does allow various things to happen, especially with the current system of illegal aliens, isn’t this really describing the government taking “action” by allowing an invasion and other acts against the U.S. Constitution?
In its latest clandestine effort to protect illegal immigrants the Obama Administration plans to prohibit both federal and local law enforcement officers from arresting undocumented aliens discovered as a result of traffic violations.
This week’s plan being offered is to shield illegal immigrants who break U.S. law by operating a vehicle without a license or driving recklessly, possibly endangering innocent Americans which we all know has happened too many times. A draft policy issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says that agency Chief John Morton intends to prohibit his agents as well as local law enforcement officers from detaining illegal aliens stopped during traffic violations.
It marks the third time this month that a covert plan to shield illegal aliens from deportation gets exposed. A few weeks ago the administration ordered authorities to halt the removal of some 700,000 illegal immigrants who are students while lawmakers construct legislation to officially spare them from expulsion.
And we agree full-heartedly. We’ve all heard about “The Memo” by now; but actually seeing it is another story. Therefore, we’ve decided (unlike Holder, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Janet Napolitano) to give everyone here a look-see and hopefully a read. So here’s the link and please have a look at what easily could have been the “Pentagon Papers.” (Please click here for the Memo.)
And finally we realized that this exact same time last year we had written an openly encouraging article which dealt with America’s law enforcement agencies (LEA) were finally working together – until we got the real truth from too many law enforcement agents from around the country – that the fact of the matter was in reality just window dressing. (Please click here to see this article.)
Never, ever, ever, even in my wildest dreams and imagination did I ever think that I’d be a first-hand witness to a government that is up to a complete different task than what the American people think. What is happening now with the Obama Administration is exactly opposite of what principles this nation was founded upon and to think that as the days go forth those who ‘framed’ our unique government operation are being ignored. The original article was written on September 9, 2010; in an attempt to keep all of us up to date several articles have been consolidated. Thank you.
The “Original Letter” from Senate Judiciary Committee
These are some babble from the esteemed POTUS, Barack Obama. Please take notice that for each occurring trouble spot there is, of course, some other excuse for why he didn’t get his original job done.
The “verge of collapse” actually started about six months before Obama was president. He knew about AIG, the banks, especially Lehman Brothers and the other investment bankers who spent what they did not own. Moreover, he also knew of the Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae and other mortgage lenders’ bankruptcy before it happened.
None of this was new to Barack Obama yet look at these terrible excuses and fortification of lies. Sure, he talks of cutting taxes on the middle class but did he? We suggest “No” inasmuch as not only has there been tax hikes but for one who must be engaged with Obamacare is taxed considerably higher.
The same with small businesses; although now because of Obamacare these businesses are slowing down in start-ups and more people being laid-off. By the way, where did he get the funds to “bail-out” and saving an auto industry? Taxpayers and citizens.
Now although this person is I’m happy to take responsibility for being naive here – where did those “Republicans” run too? Or do you think that this letter had something to do with it?
Please read, amass, and reflect on this memorandum that we use to show everyone in the U.S. as well as the world the fortitude of this pathological liar. (FOR YOUR PERUSAL)
In addition, we have included an earlier post that reports on Madam Secretary Janet Napolitano of the Department of Homeland Security, please read and reflect. (Here you are!)
We have had this notion that after years of writing and far more than 1,500 articles addressing the subject there is absolutely nothing that is being reformed…especially illegal immigration. We can evaluate what currently is going on in Washington by whatever “Gangs” an unscrupulous President who far more enjoys taking new laws into his hands, the entire executive branch of government – with special notice given to the Department of Homeland Security.
Within the DHS they literally have several different departments that should be working harmoniously and together at a particular goal. However, in reality what we have are members (Heroes) of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE) bringing charges against the U.S. government for nothing other than the lack of being able to do their jobs.
At the same time in the same department or the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are taking pay cuts, car pooling to work, and hoping to make this month’s mortgage payment. And just so we know, they are all facing a mandatory 18 day furlough in the near future. These are normally the officers that either are murdered by aliens or somehow or another get jailed for using their weapons. Trying to put this into an organizational chart is horrendous! Next we have the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) it is very easy to mistake the USCIS with the USICE. So the USCIS is the branch that issues visas, green cards, barks at cyber wars, is supposed to be accountable for student visas and the daunting U.S. Citizenship Exam.
Reform is basically the process of improving a system by the removal of outdated, ineffective, or unjust qualities. Reform is the process of correcting a situation that is wrong or unfair, or is a process that makes a system run more effectively.
Having established the definition of reform, someone, or anyone, please explain to us where reform is the justifiable amnesty of 12 million or more illegal immigrants? How does college tuition, ostensibly catering to illegal’s considered reform? How does a pathway to citizenship equal reform?
What we have are a group of Senators and the Representatives who follow them and ALL following a mentally disabled person who stated in the first year of his presidency, “…what we have is an inactive federal government on matters of immigration and naturalization…” Let’s make this clear — they certainly aren’t concerned or even curious about what we want.
Right there is what needs reforming – the inactive federal government. Pursuant to the U.S. Constitution it is the charter of the legislative branch of government to make and set policies for immigration and naturalization – nowhere does it say anything about citizenship or amnesty.
But I think something else is very much at play here. There is on the right a generic feeling that America is becoming “something else,” a country different socially and culturally than the America that was founded and fought for especially of their childhoods. Whether they worry about a failure to assimilate or a cultural shift in the fabric of America, they seem perpetually on defense as the country morphs in new and unexpected ways. Liberals say this is simply racism, but I think the vast majority of immigration opponents aren’t bigots. What does race have to do with illegal immigration reform? And these are the elites?
The essence of America, a country that is always changing and reinventing itself ideally within the rule of law. Each generation is different than the last, and we are unmistakably becoming a more diverse society racially, socially and ethnically, or this is certainly what the State Department has aspired for the USA insofar as diversity lotteries and the like.
The tie that binds us all together is not ethnicity or race but rather a set of ideals. Conservatives who venerate the Constitution should understand that and that its principles are applicable and embraceable by people who come from every corner of the globe; that is, as long as the Constitution is being used in the formation and reformation process which it clearly is not.
And there will be those who view reform as a threat to the GOP and endangering the essence of America. In fact, opposing immigration reform is becoming an acute danger to those who want it the most – not including the politicians in Washington. Immigration reform’s success will prove once again that the ideals contained in the Declaration and the Constitution are not for one time or one people but rather are universal and timeless. Now that would be a conservative accomplishment.
Border patrol agents are facing salary cuts, gas rationing, and other constraints in the face of budget cuts driven by the sequester even as detained illegal immigrants live in detention centers replete with comforts.
No announced cuts have been made for amenities at detention centers, which include taxpayer-funded health care, dental services, barber services, and bingo and movie nights. Funds for the detention centers come from the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
ICE and DHS are under fire for the release of more than 2,200 illegal immigrants from detention, some of which were level one offenders and had to be re-apprehended.
The amenities afforded detained illegal immigrants are numerous and are part of the Obama administration’s detention reform initiative. Over the past four years, millions have been spent revamping detention centers.
One such center is the Karnes County Civil Detention Facility in Texas that opened last year at a $32 million cost to taxpayers. Tours of the facility were given to reporters, and their stories depict a college-like setting in which detainees are housed in dorms or suites that hold eight.
Each is equipped with a television and private bathroom. Soccer fields, basketball courts, and other recreation areas, in addition to a computer lab with Internet access and legal resources, are all available to illegal immigrants.
“Detainees will be free to move through much of the center 24 hours a day. Unarmed staff members, dressed in blue polo shirts and khaki trousers, are known as ‘resident advisers,’ not guards,” according to a New York Times report.
Other detention centers have also been revamped, including one in Essex County, N.J., which has robust indoor and outdoor recreation.
The spending on such amenities for detainees by one DHS agency, while border patrol agents face cuts in their salaries of up to 40 percent by another agency of DHS, does not sit well with the border patrol union.
“It’s another case of misplaced priorities at the highest level of this agency,” said Stuart Harris, vice president of Local 1929 of the National Border Patrol Council in El Paso, Texas.
“It is highly frustrated for our members, when prisoners [are being taken well care of],” said Shawn Moran, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Agents are facing the loss of their homes. It’s a huge frustration for us.”
“The administration is making politically motivated, rather than fiscally responsible, selective cuts to immigration enforcement in order to advance its unpopular immigration policy agenda,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies, in an email to the Washington Free Beacon.
“It chose to release thousands of immigration detainees, at least thirty percent of whom had been arrested for crimes, and to remove border patrol agents from duty, rather than find ways to cut expenses in a way that would not compromise their mission,” Vaughan said.
She added that the agency had more than $100 million in a surplus account. That would be enough to cover the sequestration cuts, “which they have now acknowledged that they could have tapped instead.”
Harris said agents in his region are being loaded into vans and taken to vehicles in the field at each post. Agents must complete their shift in eight hours, even if it means they are in pursuit of drug smugglers in the field.
“They are limiting what agents can do,” Harris said. “It’s a hard pill for many agents to swallow. Border patrol agents take pride in what they do. If I’m out in the field, going after drug smugglers, I have to stop whatever I’m doing. They want us to do that.”
Vaughan pointed to other expenses that ICE could cut that do not impact public safety. They include: the travel and entertainment budget; the chauffeur-driven limos for mid-level political appointees; investigations on matters such as stolen antiquities, counterfeit DVDs, and NFL jerseys; free refills and movie nights in jails; and the office of the Public Advocate, “which spends most of its resources advocating for illegal aliens.”
According to Vaughan, CBP does not “need to force the Border Patrol to absorb such a large share of the sequester exercise. They should look at headquarter expenses as well, and slight cuts at the ports of entry where the effect would be a slight inconvenience to travelers, rather than the safety of U.S. communities.”
Border patrol agents, whose morale is now at an all-time low, feel the leadership in the DHS is lacking.
“All Border Patrol agents take an oath of office to uphold and enforce the laws of the United States of America,” Harris said.
“Now, DHS and CBP, by way of their sequestration plans, are not going to allow us to uphold that oath or stay true to what we swore we would do. There simply is not any leadership in this organization. We have plenty of managers, but apparently those at the top have never heard the phrase ‘lead from the front.’”
DHS did not respond to a request for comment.
Or so it would seem to us. We have had it with these people who want to be leaders albeit, do not have the training, knowledge, or wisdom to be leaders. We’re going to be looking into the ideals of immigration reform – a topic we believe is rather an easy one; but no, no, no, as long as there are activist members of congress who think that it is “un-American” to force immigration laws (Nancy Pelosi) as well as a Secretary of the Department of Homeland Securities (Janet Napolitano), and a president who willy-nilly signs executive orders calling for amnesty – where exactly do the American people come in?
The United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), now referred to as Legacy INS, ceased to exist under that name on March 1, 2003, when most of its functions were transferred from the Department of Justice to three new entities – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – within the newly created Department of Homeland Security, as part of a major government reorganization following the September 11 attacks of 2001.
After 1890, the Federal government, rather than the individual states, regulated immigration into the United States, and the Immigration Act of 1891 established a Commissioner of Immigration in the Treasury Department. Over the years, these matters were later transferred to the purview of the United States Department of Commerce and Labor after 1903, the Department of Labor after 1913, and the Department of Justice after 1940.
Now trying to be as fair as possible the people responsible for this last action ostensibly are those ‘democratic elites’ we wrote about yesterday. If there is any difficulty in understanding up to this point, it is important to remember that from 1940 until March 1, 2003 the INS was transferred to the purview of the Department of Justice.
In 2003 the administration of immigration services, including permanent residence, naturalization, asylum, and other functions became the responsibility of the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services
(BCIS), which existed only for a short time before changing to its current name, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The investigative and enforcement functions (including investigations, deportation, and intelligence) were combined with INS and U.S. Customs investigators, the Federal Protective Service, and the Federal Air Marshal Service, to create U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The border functions of the INS, which included the Border Patrol along with INS Inspectors, were combined with U.S. Customs Inspectors into the newly created U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The 2000 documentary Well-Founded Fear provided the first and only time a film crew was privy to a behind-the-scenes look at the INS asylum process in the U.S.
Let’s look at what congress is charged with – constitutionally. Under Article II, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution it is stated:
[The Congress] is to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the Subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
It all looks quite simple to us – that is, all congress is charged with doing was putting a uniform set of rules of naturalization and see to those rules affects and consistencies. Easy as pie. Can you imagine if only for a moment what if a reasonable and responsible congress saw to it that their lawmaking was executed to the fullest extent of the law?
I want to be able and sit back and tell you all is well – but the fact remains that it simply is not. All one needs to do is look at paragraphs one and two of this writing to see how knee jerk reactions cause unintended consequences to happen throughout the entire nation.
It is important to note that just about on a decade basis – once every 10 years or thereabouts – some irresponsible and unreasonable member of congress is back at it again. Press anyone of the links in the first three paragraphs and scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see more Acts, Bills, and other attempts to get things regarding immigration changed.
After all is this precisely what is going on in Congress and the executive branch of government right now? It does not take a lot folks to determine what has worked and what hasn’t worked.
America does not have a control of the amounts of immigrants that are already unaccounted for; subsequently, as refugees pull up in ships, or Florida’s famous law as to whether or not the illegal trying to escape Cuba has his feet on wet land or dry land assists tremendously in determining where that person originated.
Immigration Reform – It is as easy as one can make it
Is there anyone who can explain to a senator that will listen, or a representative that will listen acutely, because the President of this nation has already demonstrated that he is completely unable to do a leaders job. Moreover, why this is difficult to write is that there are roughly 1,000 articles on this website alone that deal with immigration reform.
We do not want to be the espouser of bad news – but are you aware that just about everything that Barack H. Obama has desired, he in some way albeit by bribery, causing scenes, against the will of the American people found ways to get his asinine and matters that will be the end of this glorious nation passed or otherwise into law.
Lord forbid that any member of Congress should ever become a credentialed (licensed) school teacher. What or how would they teach their students, incidentally, your children, just what scholars, historians, academia’s, legends of philosophy have to say about the separation of powers or the system of checks and balances?
It is getting exceedingly obvious who is behind the shenanigans when it comes to immigration reform in this country. In an article we read earlier which espoused the notion that the ‘Democratic culture’ that currently masquerades as ‘leadership’ is really nothing more than an interest group trying to advance their own agenda regardless of what the American people want or desire.
We noted that, the article certainly advocated that democratic leaders literally marched to the beat of a different drum that is very much out of sync with today’s American public opinion. In fact, poll numbers have been dropping like rocks tossed into the ocean, or are coming down as fast as the buildings did in Port au Prince, Haiti.
Therefore for today’s article we’ve collected a few scuttlebutts of our own that we publically ask the democratic leadership of this nation – moreover, any person who cares to chime in…the better!
When people talk in the abstract about undocumented immigrants – or, as some call them disdainfully, “illegal’s” they are addressing those people who live in the shadows, or who are invisible.” We hate to be the bearers of bad news albeit we like to maintain a level degree of truth in our perspectives; however, when one has sojourned to this nation without the proper documentation, to include: authorization from the United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) or sanctioning from the United States Department of State (DOS) as well as the proper visa, passport, and identification, then we refer to that as “illegally coming into the country.”
Now we find the biggest and most destructive program ever to gain a foothold in American societal history is this notion of ‘how one needs to be politically correct’ so as not to offend anyone with language remotely resembling the truth. Research data upon data clearly shows that being ‘politically correct’ serves but one function in a society and that is to clutter up communication, create log-jams, and the utter corruption of a society’s language. In other words – fear of communication.
We are of the opinion – a qualified opinion one – that there exists in our nation today a phenomenon of unhealthiness to the many at the behest of the few. In other words, we feel that language is being bent to accommodate whomever or whatever agenda that may further their cause. Here is a small example:
The ability of supervisors to evaluate or assess members and employees is unreasonable to the point of ridiculous. Clearly had the military been free of backlash regarding special interest groups and or advocacy groups about the radical behavior of one of their doctors who happened to be a Muslim whilst communicating with an international Islamic extremist; moreover, arguing with colleagues about the notion of what ‘jihad’ actually meant to the point of making a scene, perhaps there would not have been a massacre of civilians and military personnel at Ft. Hood if supervisors were allowed to communicate effectively with any group protected or not.
More tomorrowon public opinion, political correctness, and dismantling of language. Photographed below and on the left are two individuals — both related to Barack Obama who have faced deportation, ordered to depart and as you can see both are living well on easy street!
Life, living, learning, and being aware of these issues are undoubtedly the greatest creation as done by our Creator. We are sure that there are those who go on with the business of being there or just mere existence. Then again, we are certain that there are those who are living this matter we call life.
Living in this sense is the proactive means of getting the most out of life hopefully using the unalienable rights that we have been blessed with – or using the skills each one of us possess to advance in our understanding, meaning, and above all wisdom and knowledge.
Therefore who are we to ever cut our Creator short? It is not necessary to be a full of yourself as a walking witness for any religion on our planet – insofar as this certainly could be the sure highway to hell. Mind you it does not make anyone more or less saved or in touch with their god. In fact, the amount of war, killing of innocent people, and those innocently being killed who are in uniform, the infrastructure’s or entire cities, government offices, and the demise of complete cultures are no more because of man’s inability to get along with _______. Whom?
When I think back of popular myths – the Crusades – and therefore evaluating what the real motives were behind every party involved, it does not come back to god. When one focuses on the amount of wars the USA has been involved in and then totals the amount of killed in action, missing in action, or worse, wounded in action it is amazing that we are still all around.
Now let’s switch our focus on to us – those US citizens as of right now. Back up to the 1st and 2nd paragraphs again – and we need to ask ourselves are we living? Ditto learning and being proactive? Are we getting the most out of the skills that we have been blessed with?
As a matter of due-diligence, please accept what we say here as good; perhaps, a little misguided but with a little coaxing each could inspire many great works. How easy is it to say, “I can’t afford to attend college?” Probably about as hard as it was for a guy to take a marking pen and inscribing on a piece of paper, “I now have a B.S (science) degree, $25,000 in student loans, and still no job!” (Different photo used..)
Now just for the brief stretch why should a person who can communicate a given notification, the use of proper color management, an earned Bachelor of Science degree, someone who thought this person was worth advancing $25K too, and let us all be aware that he still is unemployed. This reminds me exactly of illegal immigrants who after graduating high school wear signs that state, “What Now?”
We believe that the brain matter is in touch; albeit, further to that we also believe that the individual who made the sign is far too smart to be standing out on a street corner holding a sign – and that sign of complaint. Now we wouldn’t be saying this about a person who used the same energy, even less communication skills had he contacted a flower distributor and was surrounded by those white buckets full of flowers for sale.
Between the guy announcing that he has a degree and student loan debt, and the clad in mortar boards and graduation robes signing “What now” we allow this much: pursuant to our earlier article this past week entitled, Trust No one, not even your Government we tried to establish the following notion.
Of course, Obama’s presidency is following what is called the Cloward-Piven plan to a tee—that is, creating a crisis where the welfare state, through an unsustainable debt, collapses the economy, creating an economic apocalypse whereby the central planners can then easily usher in a totalitarian Marxist state.
The American Dream is still alive and well to those who choose to attain it. We argue corporately that there isn’t any less “rocket-scientists” now than there was in our nation in 1900, 1950, or 1980s. In fact, we believe that there are considerably more.
Americans need to pry ourselves away from what is free or appears free – stop being the welfare state we’re getting known as – and think of things perhaps in a more empowered way such as, “I need to find work…it is not coming to my door, therefore, I must go out and think again on those lessons I learned in college.” Am I using the skills I’ve been blessed with?
We are not completely out of mind with the origins and responsibilities of our national experiment.¹ We mean of course that the settlements of first transplants were primarily from Western Europe. They were people who had endured many a rough time in their native homelands albeit, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England, as well as the Benelux nations of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg as well as shortly thereafter came Germans, French, Spanish, and lest we mention even the old Scandinavian strongholds.
Put in a lighter perhaps more consistent with chronological data let’s look at what we do know. Shortly during or after the Ice Age and continuing on for many millennia humankind traversed land bridges ostensibly from what is now known as Asia. We have specific evidence that supports the notion that during the postglacial era ushered in warmer weather.
This allowed for further domestication and the cultivation of plant life. It should be clearly noted that by the end of the first century A.D., intensive farming was established from the southwest to the east coast inhabitants in what is now referred to as the United States.
With the exception of the Norsemen attempt at settling within the New World, contact between North America and Europe was clearly not established until the Age of Exploration at the end of the 1400s.
However it is of relevance to understand that settlements were indeed founded in Mexico as well as Florida by the Spanish in the 1500s. In addition, we should shed appropriate light on the entire eastern seaboard bordering the Atlantic Ocean littoral by France, England, Sweden, and Holland very early in the 1600s.
There were characteristics which many people had in common: Many people were fair-skinned with lighter hair; many were of medium build and tall. What many of us either choose not to think of – or, don’t know of immediately – is the praxis of these people. For example most of these people were colonizing in groups normally from places that had established cultures, norms, and they were assumed to continue on during their exploration.
Following on the heels of Columbus’ New World discoveries – which were vast and far-reaching – the Spanish set sail for America and conquered the Native American Aztecs and further south the conquering of the Inca empire literally established an colonial empire from Mexico to Peru. Even earlier the Spanish had explorers from the southwest (USA) to St. Augustine Florida, whilst at the same time the French were actively trading with the native cultures in the St. Lawrence valley onward to the Great Lakes.
When one looks at the state of affairs during the 1500s through the 1600s in Europe one should be noticing that the entire United Kingdom was in a violent civil war. The slew of monarchs around Charles I, who was executed, then Oliver Cromwell, and his whimsical destinations for acquiring new land and wealth were nothing short of additional failure causing many to be unsettled with an enormous government. This aided by an unpopular civil war for England – and on the edge with the French Revolution furthermore, when one considers the totality of Europe – Germanic wars, Prussia, and again Spain and Portugal amassing tremendous caches of wealth, Europe was in flux.
Perhaps more than anything else, as told by historian J.H. Elliott was in the notion of those Western Europeans liked the way things were – and resisted innovation like the plague. In fact as we already know that at the end of violent uprisings created a unique time for renovation. Precisely what those settling the New World didn’t want – they were looking for stability, especially within their civic and social organization.
And it is important to understand that the whole of Europe were in some way facing uprisings, thus they were in a state of constant changes. What causes more anxiety than changes?
 Reference to the national experiment literally means the process by which the second, third, and some fourth generations of colonists indulged to create what we call the national government. It should be remembered that before, during, and after the experiment it nonetheless remained an experiment.
There are times that we are positive that our elected officials – Representatives, Senators, and the President have completely forgotten any and all forms of rational thought. No elaboration necessary. Who do these people think they are? We do have some source reading to assist in maybe why they think they are elite people and why when known before or after they are elected they truly were individuals with courtesy, decorum, friendliness, and above all manners.
Therefore, being a member of a Representative-Democracy, whom do these people think they work for? You, the American people, and me, that’s right. It is as simple as that period. We ought not to forget that friends, we need to be verbal, writing letters, and being advocates for what they have been doing.
Please share with us the last POTUS that got away with something as faulty as Benghazi, Libya? Lives were lost under enemy hostilities. A U.S. Ambassador was brutally mangled, sodomized, and dragged through the streets. And all of the sudden someone from the “elite” crowd is chosen to fabricate the truth for an international audience.
Anyone with any political background who may be seeking reelection, or any other controversial proposed legislation or more importantly issues that need fixing, such as immigration, illegal’s being in the country, same-sex marriage, and any other matter where one may be in the fray with high emotional sentiment, chances are they are amazingly quiet.
According to Congressional Quarterly Today, in the 112th Congress, law is the dominantly declared profession of Senators, followed by public service/politics, then business; for Representatives, business is first, followed by public service/politics, then law.
Does this information tell us anything about why our government is the way that it is? Of course it does; using common sense let’s look at law. What are law school students taught to do? Argue anything; albeit, for murder, kidnapping with assorted sexual assaults, regardless of which side of the argument one is on – and I guarantee that one person will perform their arguments from both perspectives. After all that is the profession of law.
Moreover, on a direct note the composition of the elite leadership of this nation should not be consorting themselves within the practice of business. Seriously, as one critically thinks about it — aren’t there enough professional firms on Wall Street and/or any economic district in most larger cities.
Now a look at politics on a professional basis; first we must naturally assume that people are genuinely disunited and ostensibly at odds with each other about anything and everything. Unfortunate or not this is the human nature of people that anyone putting a government together will encounter.
Politics is the process used to influence the behavior of individuals. Because people find themselves in dysfunctional relationships with other people coupled with disunity within the human state, then in an attempt to assure order to individuals it is the seeking of power that is the prime subject of political science.
Furthermore, whether or not a particular situation exists – such as inequality, fairness, common treatment – power seems justified as a way of placing everyone under the rule of the best human qualities. Why this basic notion of political science seems so irrelevant among members of a society is that people tend to look at what is good for them.
Just look at the Ten Commandments. There are ten unifying principles about how to act and otherwise, so why not display this collection of moral values so that everyone could see, read, and enjoy them? Now suppose that another religious sector of society has a 10 Commandments model espousing the same sense of morality, values, and ethics as the first one, then we say sure it should be used.
