Lady Justice atop the Old Bailey, London, England, UK

Justice for a photo found at my.barackobama.com

Powerful and memorable tribute to justice in the picture above picture.  It was recently used at the President’s followers’ website, my.barackobama.com. [my.barackobama.com/page/community/person/gjHnH] with the accompanying text:

“ We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. ”

Well, Kay, you need to check out the source of your magnificent imagery.  This is not a Lady Justice sitting atop, say, the Supreme Court.  This Lady Justice sits atop the Old Bailey in London.  If you use the “images” button on Google and search for “Lady Justice” you will come to this picture that is described in its tags as the Old Bailey.
Sources are important.  Well, you got the Constitution part right and that is key, Kay.

Tea Bag Rally Against Illegal Immigration Ends in Vicious Attack

Talk about under reported news, only FOX and several Conservative bloggers caught this one.  This is an issue about to explode on its own. Because the Administration did not get its priorities straight, the issue of “illegal” immigration will get lost in the health care debate.  Immigration and Health Care should have been taken up at the same time.

Let me firmly state that I am FOR legal immigration.  I was once a legal immigrant in Canada. Therefore, it is inconceivable to this writer that an illegal alien would want to step forward and sign up for health care coverage or anything else. It sounds pretty brazen to so so.  One assumes that once “outed” the individual would be deported.  What legal system are we under? The amnesty issue has to be settled before more violence errupts.  One thing is certain: it is not legal to attack protesters in the United States.

One last note.  Political correctness has caused most commentators – especially in the Administration – to “euthanize” the phrase “illegal aliens” by use of the euphemism “undocumented workers.”  You never hear “undocumented” without the word “workers.”  OK – does this mean that all illegal aliens work?

The following is a home video found on YouTube of the November 14, 2009 Teabagger protest against illegal immigration in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  Protestors were hassled then hit by members of  International ANSWER [Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER)], a US-based group:

ANSWER characterizes itself as anti-imperialist, and its steering committee consists of socialists, civil rights advocates, and left-wing or progressive organizations from the Muslim, Arab, Palestinian, Filipino, Haitian, and Latin American communities. ANSWER was formed at the initiative of Ramsey Clark and the International Action Center; many of ANSWER’s leaders were members of Workers World Party at the time of ANSWER’s founding, and are current members of the Party for Socialism and Liberation.[3]

Today, VotingFemale provided ample visual proof that there is a kind of cottage or would it be official industry to package Obama’s image as Chairman Mao during his visit to China.  Tee shirts with his image in the outfit the the Chairman were hot sellers until stopped by government officials.

However, more that tee shirts were stamped with the image.  It gives one pause to think if there were some cooperative venture involved here.  It would not be the first time the Administration’s communications people would have been out there organizing PR in some corner of the globe other than the NEA.  That was a pretty universally replicated image and expertly created. Now that the tee shirts have been banned, count on them to pop up everywhere and to sell world-wide.  Obama approaches Che Guevera in poster appeal.

Final Note:

I don’t think a CNN poll can get at the heart of what bringing the trial of the 9/11 terrorists now at GITMO to trial in NYC will mean to either Manhattanites or to the nation; what it may evoke during the long months – perhaps years of the trials.

It doesn’t take any amount of research to know from experiencing the past few decades in the US that we have shadow boxed the politically and militarily unknown since Viet Nam.  During WWII, we dealt with a crazed, evil leader in the person of Hitler.  He had designs that now seem modest compared with those of radical Islamists.

Osama Bin Laden has established himself as the all seeing all knowing mythical leader in the unattainable Sangri La in the mountains of Pakistan.  He is beyond reach. We are not. This is not your grandparent’s war.

Manhattanites – even the more liberal among them, know in their heart of hearts that they already live with the probability that Al Quaeda will do what it always does – return to an area they have not quite decimated.

Let’s get to the economic reality for New York City:  will the decision the Administration has made mean to tourism?  You can’t depend on attorneys and protesters to fill in the gaps when people do not want to go to a target zone for a vacation.

We are carrying on as if this were peacetime. Al Quaeda depends on us to be “American” and to promote freedom of speech, due process, etc.   They use them expertly like weapons against us.   Perhaps we need to recruit strategists from Al Quaeda.
