I dont think i've ever laid out my political views, and i think its about time that i did. more for my benefit so i can actually define them. hmm.. i need a questionaire.

(15 minutes later)

what the heck is a Libertarian??


well, whatever.. let's see... umm.. pressing issues of the day:

Iraq and the war on terror.

yeah, that's a good start. ok.

Iraq and the War on Terror.

Hmm... a complicated conundrum.. because we're already there, so there is no reason to debate if we should have been there in the first place.
here's some of the problems i have with these Iraqi radical terrorist hate groups:
  • They claim to hate the American Occupiers, yet set off bombs and kill their own people.
  • ummm... well, yeah. that's the main reason.
So... my stand on it? I have kinda mixed feelings. i dont think it should be left unfinished, but i also understand the opinion to cut our losses. not cut and run, just call it a loss, drop some nukes and pave it, put up condos, and give it to Israel so they dont have to keep fighting over the sand on the west bank..
um.. actually, i have no serious opinion on the war. its a mess. it doesnt look like its getting any better, but i'm interested to see how the surge works. it works in Risk.

Ok, so i was listening to Talk of the Nation on NPR this afternoon while at lunch, and they were talking about this. I do actually have an opinion on Immigration. The mexicans and other immies that want to come over and work, fine. they do the jobs we dont want to, they keep the cost of fruits and vegetables and other things low, great. So here's my idea.
Let them come. Let them stay. But, they have some limits.
  1. Their existing children who are not citizens do not go to public tax-payer paid for school.
  2. They have no access to gov't programs such as welfare.
  3. They are not considered citizens. Human rights apply, Citizen rights do not.
I think this will do two things. By letting them come, we solve the problem with smugglers and horrible travel conditions. No smuggling market, because its a relatively open boarder. They should still have to go thru checks, but not as a filter for citizens vs illegals. The checks are to ask their name, place of origin, assign them an immie ID, provide shots, etc. IDs could be bar codes tatoo'd into the backs of their hands, or subdermal chips implanted in the back of the neck or in the hand that contain this information. Chips could be used as a tracking device, if the technology is available.
Dont give me the crap about privacy. They want to leave their own country and come into ours. I'll post a great example i received via email on how the immigration process currently works.
Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
According to the recent protesters:
  • You are Required to let me stay in your house
  • You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan
  • You are Required to Educate my kids
  • You are Required to Provide other benefits to me and to my family
  • (my husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part).
  • If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call myfriends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT tobe there.
  • It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than Ido, and I'm just trying to better myself.
  • I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, Idid break into your house.
  • And what a deal it is for me!!!
  • I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of mykeep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused ofcold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.
  • Oh yeah, I DEMAND that you to learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so you cancommunicate with me.
heh.. i love that. so true. so true.. so, anyway, we're fitting them with chips or barcodes. any found not to have chips or barcodes are not to waste taxpayer dollars sitting in jail awaiting deportation hearings and then be shipped over to just sneak back in.. this can easily be handled with a 45 cent bullet. Yes, i'm harsh, but its a helluva lot more efficient, its clear in the consequences, and perhaps more of these illegals will go thru proper channels before trying to sneak in.

Ok, finally:

All knowledge comes of God. It is the choices man makes in how they use that knowledge that decides good or evil, not the knowledge itself. Cloning for the curing of disease, such as with stem cells; cloning to aleviate hunger, i.e. cloning chicken and beef; are pure reasons that will only do good in the world. Cloning a child because of loss from death in youth is vain and it is the person who ordered the cloning, not the clone itself, that is the cause of this particular evil in the world. The person needs grief counseling and to move on. The child will not be the same. It will have a unique soul. I do not believe that God would miss the opportunity to birth life into the world. A cloned child will have a real soul and be a real person. They will not be the same person, but they will have their unique individual lifepath as delivered by their parents.
Umm... hope thats clear. I tried to be clear.
that's enough for now.
