"The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes." -- Psalm 19:7-8 (ESV) --

(JUST LIKE) STARTING OVER

Our life
together
is so precious
together.
We have grown,
we have grown.
Although our love
is still special
let's take a chance and fly away somewhere
alone

It's been too long since we took the time
No one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over,
starting over

Everyday we used to make it love
Why can't we be making love nice and easy
It's time to spread our wings and fly
Don't let another day go by my love
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Why don't we take off alone
Take a trip somewhere far, far away
We'll be together all alone again
Like we used to in the early days
Well, well, well darling

It's been too long since we took the time
No one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere

Starting over....

--John Lennon, 10/9/1940 - 12/8/1980 (murder)

A POEM (NOT BY ME)

I found this poem online. It's nice, and very good.



I can't see what my future has in store
but I move forth with the strength of a condor
The courage of a warrior
The commitment of an American soldier
Despite this weight on my shoulder
my inner forces circulate to form
a nucleus of an unbreakable bond
These words describe the soundtrack to my life's song
My mind and body united like the Colors of Benneton
My destiny isn't told by the creases of my palm
A sharp thorn once cut my soul
The blood flowed
But no bandage would cover the wound
I couldn't help but stare at the distant moon
Waiting for a resolution to come at an instant soon
I asked the Lord, "What am I to do?"
He said, "Son, I made the sky blue
The rain falls because of me
Leaves change colors on a fall tree
I was the inspiration to Martin Luther King
I'm the reason Ray Charles could sing
I've changed others through and through
And my son, I'll do the same to you"

THANK YOU, GOD

End of Watch: April 29, 2002




On April 29, 2002, Deputy David March, on routine patrol in the City of Irwindale, was murderered when the driver of a vehicle he pulled over shot him as he stood next to the suspect car. The suspect, Armando Garcia, a Mexican national in the country illegally, fled back to Mexico. The murder of a police officer is a capital offense, and an extradition treaty that the US signed with Mexico forbids the extradition of nationals in Mexico if the death penalty is a possible punishment. To avoid this, most prosecutors go after life without parole. Unfortunately, the Mexican Supreme Court, which philosophically had to come to this conclusion, ruled that since life in prison was the same as the death penalty, the treaty forbid etradition of these nationals as well. This further complicated issues, and despite an assurane by President Bush himself to Mrs. March that "we're gonna get this guy," nothing came of it, continuing this Administration's pandering to Vicente Fox and Mexico. However, strong local outrage over the Mexican Supreme Court's decision pressured Mexico. Finally, that decision was either reversed or nullified.

On February 26, 2006, Armando Garcia was captured in the Mexican State of Jalisco by local authorities and the U.S. Marshal's Office. Garcia is now in Mexico City awaiting an extradition hearing. The process will take anywhere from 3 months to two years (normal for the Mexican judicial system), but soon, that...killer...will be coming back to Los Angeles to stand trial.

Thank you, God, for answering our prayers, and may justice be served in a godly manner.

Although Deputy March is a high profile person because he was a police officer lost in the of duty, other, "lesser-known" but equally persons made in the image of God have been murdered by Mexican nationals who have fled back to Mexico and are living out in the open. Los Angeles County has at least 100 open homicide cases (granted, some are gang-related) in which the suspect is a Mexican national. Other border states have similar cases. May they be brought to justice, and may this ungodly extradition treaty be re=qorked or discarded.

I find it very interesting. The Mexican govrnment complains about the outrage over illegal aliens, and out deportation of them, and demand that we give them equal access to everything, including social services, yet they do not reciprocate. For instance:

1. It is illegal for an American to own property in Mexico unless they have dual-citizenship.

2. Americans need permits to stay in certain aras beyond a certain length of times.

3. Mexico complains about building a wall at the border to stem illegal immigration, about the active enforcement by the Border patrol that has forced illegals to cross the border in extreme terrain, namely the mountains of San Diego County and the deserts of Arizona; yet, they have no problems with their shoot-first policy when Guatamalans attempt to enter Mexico illegally to reach the United States.

4. People claim that this is a racist country towards Mexicans. The true racist tendancies are by nationals against Mexican-Americans, those who are mexican by heritage and citizens of the U.S. legally (not the baby dumps at the border), since after all, we betrayed the mother country.

GOD BLESS THE CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL

The California Highway Patrol (or as we locals call them, the Chipies) has had a horrible few months. In the last 6 months, the agency has lost 6 officers, the worst rash of officer loss in memory.

I know sometimes they are annoying when they pll us over, and some of them have an attitude problem, but they really do just want to keep the highways safe and get the bad guys off the streets.

May God bring comfort to those of the families who were lost in the line of duty, and may he bless the men and women who enforce the law; and may they remember that they are in a ministry of God...agents of the State who keep order and judge fairly.

Just an old song, but not huge hit, I was singing to myself this morning.


I've nothing much to offer.
There's nothing much to take.
I'm an absolute beginner,
and I'm absolutely sane.

As long as we're together,
The rest can go to hell.
I absolutely love you,
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open,
But nervous just the same.

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the oceans
Just like the films,
There's no reason
To feel all the hard times,
To lay down the hard lines.
It's absolutely true.

Nothing much could happen.
Nothing we can't shake.
Oh, we're absolute beginners
With nothing much at stake.

As long as you're still smiling,
There's nothing more I need.
I absolutely love you,
But we're absolute beginners;
But if my love is your love,
We're certain to succeed.

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could sail over heartaches
Just like the films,
There's no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines.
It's absolutely true.

"Absolute Beginners" (1986)
Composed by David Bowie
From the Motion Picture, "Absolute Beginners"

TO SGT. SEAVEY AND GENERAL WAGNER

Thank you, Sgt. Seavey and and General Wagner, wherever you are, for telling off Reps. Jim Moran and John Murtha.

And for those who are thinking hypocrite, well, again, my three concerns:

1. unconstitutional war (easily rectified if Bush and Congress weren't such wimps)
2. disagree with overall stategy to bring "democracy" to Iraq
3. disagree with military strategy (search and destroy on a wide scale as opposed to creating safe zones...this is the heirarchy's fault)

However, now that they are there, I will not disparage these men and women who are giving their lives and limbs for something they believe is correct. I am not going to denegrate them by claiming to be smarter than they are because of issue #1 above and that they are too dumb to understand the constitution. They are not dumb. I am not going to contribute to demoralizing their morale like others seem willing to do, such as Mama Moonbat herself, who has all but admitted her son was too stupid to realize the "lies" before he re-enlisted in the military. Now some are thinking, "then why don't you go enlist?" Well, um, becuase I'd be a threat to the troops, unless I went to the academy to be an officer, and even then, I'd probably still be a threat becuase I would not get out of basic training.

Again, thanks.

 
BOLO

"You sick son of a b----. You're supposed to stand for something! You're supposed to protect people, but instead, you rape and f--- them."

--Arthur Kirkland (portrayed by Al Pacino)
From the Motion Picture, "...and justice for all" (1979)


In that memorable scene, Kirkland outs a judge who is accused of raping and beating a woman in open court because he has literally had it with the judicial system and the games people play within the system.

Those words could easily have been stated for the judge who let this guy, Emanuel Carlos Veiga, go free on bond. The Orange County (Fla.) Sheriff's Dept. had received dozens of reports of sexual assault near Disneyworld. When they got a lead in the case, they were able to break case and arrest Veiga on charges of molestation. However, inexplicably, bail was granted and the subject posted a $72,500 bond, which meant it only took 10% to free him. I don't know the FLorida bail schedule, but to compare, the bail schedule for someone accused of child molestation in my county is $100,000; and that is before going to court. In other words, you can bail out that night on $100,000 prior to your first appearance in court. If you do not post bail, then at court, the judge may reduce, increase, or release the subject on his own recognizance to appear later. Bail is nearly always increased for this kind of a crime, or it outright revoked.

Furthermore, the judge stated that Veiga could be placed on house arrest so that he could tend to his business. He was to wear a monitoring device. 6 weeks later, he cut off that device, and he hasn't been seen since.

If anyone has seen Veiga, obviously they should call the Orange County Sheriff's Department, America'a Most Wanted, or 911. He can be anywhere, and like most sexual predators, he will strike again; and when he does, make sure to send a letter to her thanking her for allowing a monster to go free.

Now of course, Veiga is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. However, given the seriousness of the crime, people, even factually innocent people, are held over for trial not because they are to be humiliated, but because they may decide to flee, and when that happens, justice is denied to everyone. Is $8,000 enough to sacrifice for freedom to move about and sexually assault more children? If the urge is strong enough, then you bet it is.
