Kieran Lalor: Term limits are the only way to achieve true ethics reform in N.Y. state government

I have not always been a fan of term limits because I feel public service is a “calling”. When your community asks you to put your skills, experience, and character to work for the betterment of society you do it humbly, passionately and ethically. It takes a strong man of principle to know when their job is done and time for fresh ideas, President Washington was a man of such ideals. While urged to seek a 3rd term he decided not to, because America had just fought a war to throw off the yoke of monarchism and he did not want to become “King George”.

Sadly, a lot of today’s politicians act like it’s their divine right to be in “power” and, along with a complicit political system, they think they are smarter and wiser than the citizens they represent, thus legislate against the will of the people.

NY property-tax cap may hit cash-poor cities: report

The Supervisor of the Town of Fishkill had a few choice words for Midhudsonnews.com:

Fishkill Town Supervisor Joan Pagones said her town’s financial recovery plan is working well.
“We feel confident the plan is going to continue to work; it has worked this year; we’re right on target for 2011, and all communities will have to dig a little deeper and make more spending cuts,” she said.
Yet in the report the Moody’s analyst, in the following excerpt, found it necessary to mention which Towns were of concern for further downgrades:

TSA ups the ante

Submit or Pay

Submit or Pay

It seems we are quickly approaching a boiling point in the standoff  between the TSA and the American public they purport to protect.  Drudge Report linked to a SunSentinel article (here) stating anyone entering a TSA line who refuses the naked body scanner and the alternative grope-fest will not simply be allowed to leave the airport, threatening  an $11,000 fine and arrest.  I can not understand why the American public has not jammed the phone lines of every member of Congress and flooded the TSA’s inbox and mailboxes with complaints regarding this violation of our 4th Ammendment rights.  Please use the ACLU form to file a complaint (link here) For anyone who doesn’t fly and thinks this won’t affect them, keep in mind this is just another step in an agenda leading to complete control over the American public.  Remember, as Benjamin Franklin wrote shortly before February 17, 1775 “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Security Theatre

Well I hate to beat a dead horse here, but this TSA issue just seems to get worse by the hour.  On one side of  the discussion you have our Homeland Security Director and former Arizona governor  Ms. Janet  Napolitano (Big Sister) who’s answer to complaints of passengers being groped is “if they don’t like our procedures, then don’t fly”. ( Article here )  One the other side we have a new District Attorney in California who promises to prosecute overzealous TSA wonks who get carried away with the groping.  What’s that? A chorus of Conservative Angels singing hallelujah for a public employee protecting the public? Stranger things have happened. ( Article here ) Our Homeland Security Director would have us believe that the increasingly intrusive security “show” we are being subjected to is somehow making us safer.  What no one seems to be talking about here is that the “Underwear Bomber” that we are supposed to be preventing from repeating was a Nigerian who boarded a plane in Amsterdam.  The Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmatallab, applied for and received a  multiple entry visa at the US consulate in London on June 12, 2008 valid until June 12, 2010.  In November of 2009  after warnings from UK officials and his father, Abdulmatallab’s name was added to the US Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment,  a database of our National Counterterrorism Center.  The name was not, however, added to the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database, the Secondary Screening Selectee List or the No Fly List and his US visa was not revoked.  Where was Homeland Security when this 23 year old Nigerian paid cash for his ticket, didn’t have his own passport and boarded a flight to Detroit with his underwear full of explosives?  Taking away our toenail clippers and lifting grandma out of her wheelchair, that’s where.  The people charged with protecting us are so scared of offending anyone other than hardworking taxpaying US citizens that they could’nt recognize a threat if it lifted it’s veil and spat in their eye.  What do we do? Write, call, email or even visit your representatives in Congress and the Senate.  Tell them you are fed up with being treated like the enemy.  Our 4th Ammendment rights are on the line here and our forefathers risked it all to provide us with these rights. Don’t let them be taken away.

Where did all the illegal aliens go?

The short answer is, they haven’t gone anywhere, we just don’t call them that anymore and that simple little change in the way the media is presenting their case could deal a major blow to our border security.  I first heard the term “undocumented worker” during the backlash for Arizona’s new immigration law.  The term “illegal alien”, used forever to identify people in this country illegally, is suddenly politically incorrect.  The newly minted term “undocumented worker” is meant to decriminalize the action of entering this country illegally.  This seemingly small change in the way the US looks at people who choose to circumvent our immigration process could have major ramifications.  Watch the video here : NC town to accept Mexican ID’s

Danger of Fed’s Latest Decision

The Federal Reserve’s recent decision to dump $600 billion into our economy carries a danger far greater than it would seem. In theory, you would think keeping interest rates low would be good for the economy, right? Not so, what they have done is virtually guaranteed inflation beyond our wildest imagination. Obama and his administration are like a child behind the control panel of a missle launcher, they have awesome power at their disposal and absolutely no comprehension of the destruction that can follow…or do they? We need to keep after our elected leaders to pay attention to what is going on at the Fed and hold them accountable. Please read the article regarding the Fed’s decision here: Link from Drudgereport
