PersonalViews While I think Ron Paul for President 2012 is the best plan to STOP, DELAY of SHORTEN the “Storm from the Gathering Clouds”. Even if elected, and circumstances can render that result, it will not eliminate the need for the Liberty of self-sufficiency. Therefore, the Liberty ViewsLetter will include information about the PREPERATION for the Liberty of self-sufficiency. The most important thing you have to do toward that end, you can do during the next week. What you can do is to GET STARTED. For starters, when you do your grocery shopping this week, spend an extra $20.00 on food that you can store for that “Rainy Day”. [Remember the “Gathering Clouds”] The second thing you can do is click on one of the “Preppers Links” included in today’s Liberty Views and take in the information you find there.

We have been doing these Liberty ViewsLetters almost weekly since 1/1/2005. We have shared 35,000 plus pages of valuable Liberty oriented information. However, our efforts, and the efforts of thousands of other has not stemmed the tide of the potential collapse. We are therefore taking the Liberty ViewsLetter to the next stage of the Liberty of self-sufficiency.

We will cover such things as neighborhood cooperation, personal and community vegetable gardens. Preparing your produce for long term storage. Self-protection, budgeting for preparedness, reliable books, and internet sources, gardening etc. Everything related to the Liberty of self-sufficiency

Your Must See For The Week The Most Vile and Inhumane Immigration Story You Will Read This Week Mike Riggs 02/15/2012
Felipe Montes lived and worked in the United States for nine years. During that time, he held a full-time job, paid his bills, and fathered two children with his wife, Marie. He failed, however, to pay several traffic tickets, or to acquire a driver's license or car insurance. As a result, a 2010 traffic stop ended with Montes being taken to a detention center where he was scheduled for deportation.
Marie Montes gave birth to the couple’s third child while her husband was behind bars. Six weeks later Felipe Montes was deported. Two weeks after that, the Allegheny County child welfare department took all three children from Marie Montes on the grounds that she could not afford to take care of them, and put them in foster care, where two of them have already been abused. [Abused by people that the Allegheny County child welfare department found totally, acceptable as Foster Parents]
Color Lines, the publication put out by the immigration reform think tank Applied Research Center, interviewed Montes, his wife, and their neighbors in Sparta, North Carolina. “He was a real good guy and as a worker he could do anything,” said Montes’ former boss. “He loved those kids more than anything. We’d be doing tree work and it’d be kind of dangerous and he’d say, ‘I’ll do this but if something happens you have to take care of the kids, ok?’”

Decency Requires a Minimum-Wage Law? March 2004
Proponents of Minimum-Wage Laws Commit Logical, Economic and Moral Fallacies
August 11, 2003, Los Angeles Times op-ed page, where Republican Douglas MacKinnon argues that anyone who cares about the poor should be ashamed of the failure of the Senate to raise the minimum wage. His essay is a model not only of economic illogic, but of moral illogic also. (Actually, the two are connected.) The economic fallacy MacKinnon commits is the failure to acknowledge that prices for anything, including the cost of buying someone’s labor power, depend not only on aggregate supply and demand, but also on the economic priorities (“values”) of individual buyers (and sellers). In other words, “demand” refers not only to the number of people who desire something, but also to the (variable) intensity with which a particular buyer desires it. Based solely on aggregate supply and demand, I could have someone else mow my lawn for around $30, but for the most part I am content to mow my own lawn. If it cost 30 cents, however, I would surely hire someone else to do it. The act of mowing my lawn has no fixed, predetermined “worth.” [This is BASIC information.

A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife's stomach with indelible ink. The couple was curious about what the stamp was for, so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters, the stamp said, "When you can read this without needing a magnifying glass, come back and see me."

Quotes From
Thousands of Kids Lost From Parents In U.S. Deportation System
Clara’s eldest kid was 6 years old and her youngest just a year old when it happened. Josefina’s baby was 9 months. All three children were ripped from their mothers and sent to live in foster homes with strangers. Clara and Josefina, sisters in their early 30s who lived together in a small northern New Mexico town, had done nothing to harm their children or to elicit the attention of the child welfare department. Yet one morning last year, their family was shattered when federal immigration authorities detained both sisters. Clara begged them to let her call a friend who could come pick up the children. The agents refused. Clara and Josefina were deported four months later.

According to over 100 child welfare caseworkers and attorneys, we interviewed around the country, as rates of deportations increase, so do the numbers of children from immigrant families in foster care. Indeed, federal data released to the Applied Research Center through a Freedom of Information Act request shows that almost one in four people deported in the last year was the mother or father of a United States citizen.

Roberta is one such parent. Almost a year ago, she was arrested on a drunken driving charge that would likely have triggered only a short interruption in her child custody, if she were a citizen. Instead, it threatens to result in the termination of the 35-year-old’s parental rights, because she is an undocumented immigrant and was deported after being charged.

PS At least 5100 children who are presently in foster care whose parents have been detained or deported. Read More at http://tinyurl.com/LibertyViewsImmigration314-1

Ayn Rand Was an Illegal Immigrant Shikha Dalmia 02/14/2012
Reason Foundation's Shikha Dalmia details how Ayn Rand came to America and her battle to stay here, writing, "...this proud naturalized American, who arguably did more than any contemporary figure to restore the faith of Americans in America, might have been hounded out of the country if one of our current crop of Republican hopefuls had been president when she arrived. Why? Because Rand lied and bent every rule to gain entry into the United States. As a vehement anti-Bolshevist, she knew that she would die waiting in line if she applied for permission to permanently relocate to America, although that's exactly what she intended to do." Dalmia says Rand's experience reveals how today's immigration debate fails to distinguish between "serious criminals and petty visa violators." http://reason.com/archives/2012/02/14/ayn-rand-was-an-illegal-immigrant

Immigration hearings begin in House By Andy Marso 02/13/2012
THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL                A House committee heard testimony on a bill to allow Kansas to support undocumented workers in labor-hungry industries Monday — the first of five days devoted to a wide variety of immigration legislation.
Monday's bill was supported by Rep. Reynaldo Mesa, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, former Agriculture Secretary Allie Devine and a state religious leader. But several members of the committee seemed concerned it might cause employers to run afoul of federal immigration law.
Devine said federal law currently allows any person or entity to sponsor someone in their application for legal status and that was the goal of the bill — to identify and screen workers in Kansas industries that have labor shortages and offer to support them in the immigration process. Devine said Kansas businesses want the labor and immigrants want the jobs. “We’re asking the state of Kansas to support nonviolent aliens in their quest to become lawful,” Devine said. “They deserve our dignity and respect and an avenue to become lawful." http://cjonline.com/news/2012-02-13/immigration-hearings-begin-house

New voice in drug war debate: Central American business
Christian Science Monitor  (02/16/12)
Legalizing drugs in an effort to combat organized crime, narco-trafficking and gang violence in Latin America has gained traction in recent months. Presidents from Guatemala and Colombia have raised the possibility of legalization in their countries and the region, with politicians from Costa Rica, Mexico and El Salvador joining the debate. Though decriminalization doesn't guarantee an end to violent organized crime in the Americas, it could free up government resources and potentially divert profits away from traffickers, supporters say."

WordViews by Walt Clark
chimerical   ky-MER-i-kul  (adjective): Merely imaginary; fanciful; fantastic; wildly or vainly conceived; produced by a wildly fanciful imagination; having, or capable of having, no existence except in thought.
 
SYNONYMS:
illusory (adjective form of illusion) Illusory is as fictional as chimerical, but illusory has no one to blame, where chimerical is usually someone’s invention.
figmental (adjective form of figment) Figmental is a good word to use because it sounds fresh yet everyone knows what it means by its association with the expression “figment of the imagination.”  
delusive; (adjective form of delusion) Delusive is more false than fanciful. To be delusive is to be on-purpose misleading, whereas to be chimerical is usually harmless in its fiction
   
WORD WISE: Chimerical is from Chimaera, which in Greek mythology was a monster represented as vomiting flames, and as having the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a dragon. 
 
QUOTE: "Spanish galleons, of course, hold out the prospect   
(usually chimerical) of caskets of jewels and sacks of   
doubloons."

Felipe Montes is no victim. He created his own problems by entering the county in violation of US immigration laws. In his case the justice system worked as designed and he was deported. That's the way the law is supposed to work. Since Felipe Montes was driving a car without a DL or auto insurance he was a threat to law-abiding citizens who also share the roadways. Had Mr. Montes collided with an innocent citizen causing serious injury - the innocent citizen could very well suffer bankruptcy and financial ruin. Many innocent Americans have met that tragic fate at the hands of illegal invaders. My advice is stay in your own country and don't come here until you have legal authorization. Otherwise you invite problems. Don't blame America. Blame yourselves.

Ayn Rand was a blatant hypocrite. During her professional life she preached self-sufficieny and condemned those who dipped into the public trough. Yet she willingly accepted social security and medicare in her golden years. And she received a tremendous amount of medical treatment since she had lung cancer. So the amount of money extracted from the system through medical services far exceeded what she paid in. When I learned of this I lost all respect for Ayn Rand. IMO she was just as phony as your typical politician.

Numerous times I have requested Mr. McGlawn to name one successful global economy that promotes an open border policy or even an open labor policy that allows for indigent foreign laborers to cross their international borders unscreened in search of work.

To date the blog host has been unable to name such a nation.

Until Mr. McGlawn can name such a country I simply can't view his immigration theories with any credible interest.

Ron Paul is giving strong consideration to Judge Napolitano as his VP running mate. If he selects the Judge I will vote for him. But my vote would be for Judge Napolitano - not for RP. No other man in politics has such a clear grasp on the difference between right and wrong. I would rather have the Judge as Presidential candidate and RP as VP. But beggars can't be choosers.

Since HB56 was enacted in Alabama that state's unemployment rate fell a whopping 1.7%!!!

Employment gains in Alabama were significantly higher than in their neighboring states!!!

41,000 more Alabamans are working today than at the time HB56 was approved!!!

And the most significant employment gains were seen in those counties that previously employed large groups of illegal invaders!!!

This means 41,000 more Alabama citizens are able to feed, clothe and house their children without support from the state!!!

We need more states following the lead of Alabama so more American citizens can find work to support their families!!!
