The positive message in the television show introduction

The television show is Little House on the Prairie.  Original episodes ran from 1974-1983.  The linked website describes the show as "The life and adventures of the Ingalls family in the 19th century American West."  There was a real Ingalls family in the 19th century American West, and one of the daughters, named Laura Ingalls, wrote books about her family after she had married a man named Almanzo Wilder.  This is a link to her biography on the Biography website.  This is a link to her biography on the Little House website.  This is a link to her books on Amazon.

This video shows the introduction to one episode of the show.  You will see all five members of the Ingalls family and the names of the actors who play them.

Starting at 23 seconds, watch the three children run down a hill.

The youngest child is the last one to go down the hill.

Watch her:
  1. fall down

  2. get back up

  3. keep walking

The person who was holding the camera when the children ran down the hill could have put the camera down when he saw the youngest child fall down, but he did not do that.

I think that he (or she) knew that most young children have the ability to pick themselves up when they fall.

I also think that he (or she) had met all of the young actresses who had been hired to play the Ingalls children and that all of them, even the youngest, had demonstrated a minimum amount of physical skill when walking on a variety of surfaces, including the small hills in the area where the television show was filmed.

As a result of the cameraman's decision to let the youngest child fall and pick herself up so that she could keep walking, every episode of the show taught a whole generation of Americans that they, too, could fall down, pick themselves up, and keep walking without anyone's help.

I'm proud of that cameraman.

This is a link to the nominations and the awards that this television show received.  The nominations include a Golden Globe nomination for the Best TV Series in the drama category.  The awards include two consecutive People's Choice awards for Favorite Television Dramatic Program in 1978 and 1979.

If you are eligible to vote in Massachusetts

... and if you live in the 5th Congressional District in Massachusetts, in the center of the eastern half of the state ...

This is a closeup photo of this district.

The blue area on the extreme right is the Massachusetts Bay.

Please vote for Michael Stopa in the Congressional primary on October 15th, now that Ed Markey, who used to represent this Congressional district, is a U.S. Senator.

This means that the 5th Congressional District doesn't have anyone to represent it at the moment. 

Please vote for Mike Stopa, to put some respect for the sciences into our Congress.

Copied from the biography on his campaign website:
Note: The photo is a still from his appearance on Sean Hannity's show in 2010.  Two videos of that appearance are included later in this page.  I supplied the links to Suffield Academy, Wesleyan University, the University of Maryland, and the Physics Department of Harvard University that are in the first two paragraphs.

Mike and Sean Hannity
Mike Stopa is a graduate of Suffield Academy and holds an undergraduate degree in Astronomy from Wesleyan University and a Ph. D. in Physics from the University of Maryland.

Mike teaches in the Physics Department at Harvard University, where he has served as Research Physicist and Senior Computational Physicist since 2004.  He specializes in computation and nanoscience.

He is the director of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network Computation Project and a recognized expert on nanoscale electronics and computation.  He has over 75 publications and over a thousand citations to his work in the physics literature.

Mike lives in Holliston with his wife of eighteen years and his four beautiful children, including three girls and one son.

This video was filmed in 2010, when Mike lived and voted in the 3rd Congressional District in Massachusetts.

In 2010 he was living and voting in the 3rd District.  Now that he lives in the 5th District, he will be a better Congressman than Ed Markey ever was.

Mike's voice can be heard starting at 3 min, 10 seconds.

This video is part of the same 2010 appearance on Fox News.

The panel is now discussing President Obama's request for NASA to recognize the achievements of one religion (Islam) in the sciences.

Remember, Mike Stopa is a nanoscientist with a Ph.D. in Physics.

Mike's voice can be heard starting at 1 min, 30 seconds.

The primary election is Tuesday, October 15, 2013.

May 12, 2016 update.

Mr. Stopa lost his campaign to be a United States Representative, but he is now a supporter of Donald Trump.

On Saturday, April 30, 2016, he ran successfully to be a delegate to the Republican Convention that will be held in July in Cleveland, Ohio.

I was there in person during this one-day event, and I also campaigned to be a delegate to the same Republican Convention.  As I was waiting in line to enter the rental hall, I saw him, and I told him that I wanted to be elected as a candidate to the Republican Convention that was scheduled to meet in Cleveland, Ohio in July 2016.  I asked him to support me, and I expected that he would support me, because the first part of this essay had supported him when he was a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, but he told me that he wouldn't do it because he was the head of a group of people who wanted to be elected as delegates themselves, as supporters of presidential candidate Donald Trump.

I didn't get enough votes to win because there were a lot of Donald Trump supporters there, and they were obsessed with voting only for their own candidates.

Donald Trump supporters have many of the same characteristics as cult members, including an irrational love of their leader and an equally irrational hatred of anyone who is outside of their group.  I had already seen both characteristics of a cult in my brief conversation with Mr. Stopa, and I saw more of these cult characteristics later that afternoon in the hall.

A woman who was sitting next to me in the room, who had some Trump campaign literature with her, including campaign buttons, referred to another candidate as "a snake in the grass".
She worked on a Sodoku puzzle whenever any non-Trump candidate was making a campaign speech.

This meant more to a Trump supporter than anything that was said by someone who wasn't a Trump supporter.

She had a closed mind, and that's a dangerous quality for anyone who is voting for delegates to a party convention.

It's even more dangerous whenever a majority of the people in a room are voting for convention delegates.  They should be listening to all of the speeches, by every candidate to be a delegate, so that they can honestly say that they are well-informed voters.

Whenever a large number of people have an irrational love for one fallible human being, it allows that person to change from being a politician into being a dictator.  The more irrationality someone's supporters have, the easier this change can be made, and the harder it will be for any fallible human being to resist making this change.

When a majority of the people in one geographic area have an irrational love for a person who becomes a dictator, they will accept brutality, even cruelty, from that dictator.  This cage held a pilot from the Jordanian Air Force.  He was captured alive when his plane was shot down by ISIS, but then he was burned alive while trapped inside of his cage.

These web pages include information about this February 2015 photo, including actual video of his cruel death.

Separation of church and state in Islam

The following paragraphs were copied from an article in the World News Daily published March 3, 2013.  All of the links in these paragraphs were in the W.N.D. original article.  The link to the article is at the end of the article.
Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to a leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.

The rally in Austin was part of a nationwide effort to hold “Muslim Capitol Day” events.

According to the event website, Muslims from around Texas went to the capitol to “promote civic and political activism throughout the wider Muslim community.”

The organizers said one major issue discussed “was the recent House and Senate bill proposals involving the implementation of ‘anti-Shariah’ legislation, where the First Amendment rights and freedoms of Muslims would ultimately be hindered.”

Critics argue Shariah prohibits other faiths from free exercise of religion when enforced, giving freedom only to Muslims.

Carroll’s statement was similar to a statement allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad. He was paraphrased by a reporter saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”


Does Mustafa Carroll, the leader of the Dallas, Texas branch of C.A.I.R., think that any U.S. president, even a Muslim U.S. president, has any Constitutional authority to allow American Muslims:
  • to have multiple wives,
  • to rape women,
  • to murder people, including family members,
  • to hijack airplanes and to fly them into buildings,
  • to steal money from businesses, including banks,
  • to have veiled women walking into banks,
  • and for anyone to have sex with children?

Does he think that the American public would tolerate any U.S. president, even a Muslim president, who did violate the Constitution he swore to uphold by giving an unconstitutional exemption to American Muslims who wanted to violate U.S. law, including our tax laws and the laws that make it a crime to murder, rape, and to rob banks?

Please allow me to quote an actual Muslim authority.

Copied and pasted from a Muslim website, the Online Darul Iftaa of Darul Uloom Deoband:
What's the proof for living under the law of the country you live in as long as it does not contradict Shariah? And which laws of the Mushrikeen-e-Mecca did our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) obey to?

(Fatwa: 702/686=L)

(1) It is narrated in Hadith: (المسلمون عند شروطھم (او کما قال علیہ السلام), Muslims should keep the agreements they make.  And we have been prohibited to revolt:المختار: (/6:212)  (We have been commanded to refrain from rebellion and cheating.)  Therefore, one should abide by the law of one's country until it contradicts the Shariah.

(2) First, there was no government.  Secondly, had there been any tribal system, then you should point out the examples which were in opposition with Shariah and the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not oppose it. Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best

Darul Ifta,
Darul Uloom Deoband

There.  Mohammed has spoken.  We all heard it.

The head of the Dallas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is wrong.

"One should abide by the law of one's country until it contradicts the Shariah."

Update on Ayo Kimathi

A man fitting the description of Ayo Kimathi has been seen in the company of a Kentucky moonshiner.  Local law enforcement officials who have seen them together say that the local boy is well known to them and that he lives in an underground bunker.

When asked for comment, Jeremiah Wright said that Ayo was making a deal with the devil, and he said that he hoped Ayo would stay away from the moonshine long enough to accomplish his holy mission of ridding the world of devils like the man he was with.  However, Jeremiah also said that Ayo's open hostility for a majority of the people in this country, coupled with his well-known plans to murder as many of his enemies as he could, likely meant that there was now a bounty on his head, making it necessary for him to hide out until he could assemble the armed militia that was necessary to finish the massacre that he has been planning for years.

The two men have been listening to some music that is a blend of country and rap.  The local people call it "crap".

Some of the people in Ayo's neighborhood are amused at the sight of the two people walking and talking together because it's very plain to them that neither of them has been sleeping much.

They speculate that Ayo and the local boy are both afraid to sleep because the first one who does so is likely to be killed and eaten.

If you happen to see a pile of charred human bones with barbeque sauce on them, please notify the local police.

Welcome back from your latest vacation, Barry

These bumper stickers, pins, and other products are all available for purchase somewhere on the internet.

Why is the United States so united in hating him?

These two charts are helpful in answering this question.  They are copied from an article published June 27, 2012 by the American Enterprise Institute.

Compared to President Ronald Reagan, President Obama's economic policies are a complete failure.

When is your next vacation, Barry, and why can't you admit that your economic policies are a failure?

Now that he's been out of office for more than five years, you can't blame George Bush anymore.

Oh by the way, Barry, President Ronald Reagan cleaned up Jimmy Carter's economic mess in less than TWO years.

Remember the double-digit unemployment rates, the double-digit mortgage interest rates, and the double-digit inflation rates of the late 1970s?  Of course you don't, you idiot, because President Ronald Reagan's economic policies, with the full support of the American business community and the American public, fixed all those problems.

In less than two years.

Which Barry is believable?

The following two videos, recorded one year apart, both show how one man, who is unfortunately but temporarily the President of the United States (thank the founding fathers for his term limit) discussing a "red line" with respect to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The first video was sent to YouTube by the Telegraph, a newspaper published in the United Kingdom.  The second video was sent by the Cable News Network (CNN).

Uploaded August 21, 2012
Uploaded September 4, 2013
One minute, 37 seconds
One minute, 23 seconds

Partial text of video #1

Starting at 30 seconds:
We have been very clear., to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is if we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.  That would change my calculus.  That would change my equation.

The full text of video #2

First of all, I didn't set a red line. The world set a red line.

[You're a liar, Barry, because you did set a red line.  You're a liar.]

The world set a red line when governments representing 98% of the world's population said that, uh, that the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war.

Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty.

Congress set a red line when it, uh, indicated that, uh, in a, uh, piece of, uh, legislation titled "The Syrian Accountability Act", that, uh, some of the horrendous things that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for.

Uh, and so, when I said, in a press conference, that my calculus about what's happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming, uh, consensus of humanity said is wrong.

Um, That wasn't something I kinda made up.  I didn't pluck it out of thin air.

There's a reason for it.

Uh, Barry, you did say that you had drawn a red line.  You were recorded in the first video saying that "we", meaning the United States, with you as our unfortunate but temporary President, were the party that drew the red line.

I didn't make it up.  I didn't pluck it out of thin air.  The video is my proof that you made that statement.

I have been searching for a video of the leader of another country making a similar statement about red lines and chemical weapons, but I can't seem to find it.

Oh, and I have also been searching for a video recording of a member of either house of Congress making a statement about a red line and chemical weapons.  Can you help me find this video?

I would be very grateful.

Poor economic choices by President Obama

He can't afford to fight Idaho wildfires ...

Copied from an article published August 21, 2013 (today) by Politico:
Running out of money to fight wildfires at the peak of the season, the U.S. Forest Service is diverting $600 million from timber, recreation and other areas to fill the gap.

The nation’s top wildfire-fighting agency was down to $50 million after spending $967 million so far this year, Forest Service spokesman Larry Chambers said Wednesday in an email.

Chambers says the $50 million the Forest Service has left is typically enough to pay for just a few days of fighting fires when the nation is at its top wildfire preparedness level, which went into effect Tuesday.

There are 51 large uncontained fires burning across the nation, making it tough to meet demands for fire crews and equipment.

... because he decided to spend money on this instead

Copied from an article published August 20, 2013 (yesterday) by the Cato Institute:
With dead protesters littering the streets of Cairo, Secretary of State John Kerry’s theory that Egypt’s military rulers “were restoring democracy” isn’t looking very good. The dead won’t be able to vote in the new and improved Egypt.

Instead of acting as the regime’s enabler, the Obama administration should cut off foreign “aid.” If there is influence for Washington to exercise, officials should do so quietly and informally.

Unfortunately, U.S. policy toward Egypt has rarely focused on the Egyptian people. The $75 billion in “aid” was largely a payoff to successive dictators and their military Praetorian Guards. Washington worried about “stability,” not democracy.

Economics means you have to make choices based on your preferences

$75 billion could pay for a lot of firefighter overtime, with money left over for their equipment, their food, their water, their medical bills, their housing, their phone calls home to their families, and many other vitally important details.

Because our Muslim President decided to give away $75 billion to some terrorists in Egypt, who have used this money to burn down Christian churches, this money isn't available to prevent Idaho homeowners from losing their homes.
video of the 2013 Colorado flood

Copied fr4om an article published on August 20, 2013 (yesterday) by the Tribune-Review
AL NAZLA, Egypt — Weeks ago, Egyptian Islamists marked Christian homes here with red graffiti that vowed to defend ousted President Mohamed Morsy with “blood.”

Last week, as police and soldiers assaulted two sprawling Islamist protest camps in Cairo, Christians say members of Morsy's Muslim Brotherhood organization looted and burned two churches and a monastery dating to the 16th century.

“There were a lot, like a thousand or more,” said Milad, a custodian at Emir Tadros Monastery, founded in 1598. “As they attacked us, they yelled, ‘Allah is Great!' ”

Like other Christians in this village, Milad would give only his first name, fearing retaliation. He said his son needed 13 stitches to treat a head wound.

The attackers looted all of the monastery's rooms, he said, “and then they burned everything.”

Christian-Muslim confrontations, long a problem in Egypt, turned more frequent and deadlier since the country's 2011 revolution and again after the Brotherhood and other Islamists won control of the government in 2012.

Since Morsy's ouster on July 3, scores of Christian churches, homes and shops have been looted or torched. So many attacks have occurred in the past week that human-rights groups are struggling to track them.

Maspero Youth Union, a Coptic Christian activist group, reports 38 churches and monasteries destroyed and 23 damaged; Bishop Ermia, president of Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Cultural Center, puts the total at 65.

This was e-mailed to me

When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates.  He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive?"

Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed."

James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!"

Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

The beatings and thrashings continued as James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical socialist leader.

As Obama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared.  Obama wept and said, "This is not what you promised me."

The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?  You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you something!"

Four videos, one wonderful woman

Michelle Dowery, during the 2012 presidential campaign.

This video was uploaded to YouTube in September 2012.

It has been watched more than nine million times.

The following two videos were broadcast online on January 14, 2013 and uploaded to YouTube the next day.

Two minutes out of a one-hour online broadcast.

The first conversation:

Interviewer: "Who are you going to vote for in 2016?"

Michelle: "It darn sure won't be Obama."
Five minutes from the same broadcast.

Recorded January 14, 2013.

This next video is the full one-hour online show that was broadcast on January 14, 2013.

The last two videos show parts of this one-hour video.

Thank you, Michelle Dowery, for your honesty.

I wish America had seen this honesty earlier.

Unfortunately, there are millions of people who voted for Obama and who didn't know what they were doing until it was too late.

Many of these conversations were recorded in Detroit, Michigan, which filed for bankruptcy recently.

Uploaded to YouTube in September 2012.

This video begins with Michelle before she knew who Obama really was, but it also shows brief interviews with other Obama voters who only like him because he's giving them things like free food and housing assistance.

The Constitution calls this bribery, and it says explicitly that this is a valid reason to impeach him.

The last president didn't cause this many problems

If President Obama truly wanted to help the middle class of this country, he would do more to help the businesses that offer jobs to the middle class.

That means reducing the regulations that put unnecessary burdens on American businesses, including these costly regulations:

Every dollar that a business, large or small, has to spend on any of the above regulations is a dollar that cannot be given to a company employee, no matter how much he or she deserves to have that dollar in his or her paycheck.

That means that no matter how much you may want people in the middle class to do well, Mister President, your own regulations are driving them out of the middle class and into the lower class.

But don't worry about that tiny little detail.  The government has lots of money to spend on food stamps, subsidized housing, free telephone service, tax refunds to people who aren't even U.S. citizens, and lots of other benefits, right?

$4.2 billion was given to Mexican children, reported May 2, 2012 by the Examiner.  The link in the paragraph below is in their original article.
Investigative television reporter Bob Segall of Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR TV Channel 13, was contacted by a long-time central Indiana tax preparer, who blew the whistle on a multi-billion dollar tax fraud about which the IRS has done nothing, according to the TV news show video segment that aired on Monday.

"There is not a doubt in my mind there's huge fraud taking place here," he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a [heavily redacted] tax return.

"We're talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that's taking place and no one is talking about it," he said.

The scheme involves illegal immigrants that are filing tax returns, claiming child credits for multiple dependents under their support in "their" U.S. household, and collecting enormous cash refunds--such as one persons tax return that showed income of over $14,000, who collected a cash refund of over $10,300.

Barak Hussein Obama, stop wasting our money and start allowing U.S. businesses to support our middle class by using the savings from reduced or eliminated regulations to hire people and give the deserving ones bonuses and raises.  That's something you're supposed to do but haven't done yet.

It's that simple, MISTER President.

Would you rather have me call you Bam-Bam?

Update on my 100th Twitter follower

The essay that mentioned a contest and my Twitter followers was published before I had 100 followers on Twitter.  Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have enough followers to push me over that milestone.  At the moment, I have 145 followers.

My 100th Twitter follower is named Upstate Criminals.  This is the person who I have chosen to have early access to a special essay.

The essay wasn't finished when this Twitter follower became my 100th follower, but I finished writing the essay yesterday.

The essay accuses President Obama of taking actions that harm his own country and mine.  Under United States law, he could be arrested and charged with a very serious crime called Treason.

Treason is usually defined as taking actions that "give aid and comfort" to one of this nation's enemies.  The essay names one country as being one of America's enemies (with documentation of that statement) and it says that Barak Obama, at the end of 2011, gave aid and comfort to that country.  I document those actions as well.

I began writing this essay more than a week ago.  I finished it yesterday, as I said.

Soon after I finished writing the essay, I logged onto Twitter and sent a message to Upstate Criminals, telling him that he should contact me.  As a condition of his early access to this essay, I also required that he be a subscriber to my "Conserving the Nation" blog.  That is the blog that will publish the essay.

I have not heard from that Twitter follower yet.  I can only guess why he has not contacted me so far.

I sent him a message, also visible to all my other followers, saying that if he did not contact me by Monday morning (July 29), I would publish the essay anyway, and he would lose the privilege of early access.

The essay took a long time to write.  It includes a video and a few photographs.  Most of my essays also have several links.  This essay also includes several links.

President Obama is a dangerous man to be in control of the White House and all of its' power.  It is my strong hope that many Americans will read that essay and be so outraged at his treasonous actions that they write to their representatives in Congress, urging them to begin the impeachment process that is in our Constitution.

Obama's popularity ratings are very low, but I am not satisfied, because he still has the power to order many U.S. Government agencies to take actions that hurt this country and its' citizens.  This is something that he has been doing ever since he was first sworn in, January 2009.

Obama can also order the U.S. military, as the civilian Commander-in-Chief, to take actions that harm them, even without the formal approval of a Congressional Declaration of War.  He has already used U.S. military forces against Libya when no declaration had been provided to him by the U.S. Congress.  That alone should have been grounds for impeaching him.

President Obama must be impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, Convicted by the U.S. Senate, and forced to remove himself from the power of the White House, power that he has abused ever since he became president in 2009.

Whether my new essay is published today or Monday, it will help in this very worthwhile goal.

Barak Obama, save my nation the embarassment of an impeachment.


[August 10, 2013 update.   I tried many times to contact my 100th Twitter follower in order to give him the early access to that essay, but he never followed up on my repeated attempts.   I then contacted another follower of my Twitter account, someone who is also a member of the U.S. Congress, but he also didn't respond to my attempt to give him early access to the essay.  Finally, I published the essay called "Barak Obama is a traitor to his country"on Monday, July 29th]

Shout out to a fellow patriot.

I have an essay that lists about 40 reasons to impeach the President of the United States, Barak Hussein Obama.

For the benefit of my international readers, impeachment is a peaceful method of removing many elected officials in our government who have taken actions that violate our Constitution or who have performed their jobs exceptionally poorly in other ways.

Another person who writes a blog has published his own essay that lists reasons to impeach President Obama, which are called "Articles of Impeachment" in the U.S. Constitution.  His essay lists 115 reasons to impeach him, about four times as many reasons as I have.  Many of his 115 Articles have links to other articles, such as this one.

Those other articles serve the purpose of documenting the facts that he offers in support of the impeachment resolution that he and I both want the U.S. House of Representatives to produce and approve, followed by a historic vote in the U.S. Senate to convict Mr. Obama, which would result in him being forcibly but peacefully (I hope) removed from the White House.

Well done, Peter Paton, well done.

voters in other countries, including India and Mexico,
that must show identification when they vote.  India
has over a billion people, yet their voters all have an
identification card, and Mexican voters also have them.

Seeing racism and sexism where it doesn't exist 216
This essay is based on my personal experience attending
a chess club at a public library many years ago.

Richard Nixon's second impeachment article 187
He was accused of telling the I.R.S. to attack his political enemies.
The current President has done the same thing.

This gun saved lives 173
On January 3, 2013, a man broke into a Georgia house.
A woman and two small children were inside at the time.
She called police and her husband.  He told her to hide
herself and the children in the attic, but he also told her
to use his handgun to shoot the intruder if he found her
and the children in the attic.  The intruder did find her,
and she did shoot him, thus saving herself and the two
small children.  The gun saved all three of them.

A message for Kevin 149
This page is based on a political cartoon that shows a boy
in a school classroom who is refusing to stand for the
Pledge of Allegiance.  In the cartoon, the teacher tells
Kevin that she respects his view, but there is a man who
is sitting in a wheelchair and wearing a military uniform
who is unable to stand because he defended Kevin's rights
even though it cost him his health.  The page also
mentions Major General Harold Greene, killed in Afghanistan.

Important note

When I first published this page, there was a list of the five most recent essays on this blog.  I intended to update that list every time I published a new essay, but there is an index of this blog that makes it easy to find out the names of the recent essays.

Poor economic choices by our President

This page was written in August 2013.  At that time, there were wildfires in Idaho.  This is documented with a story in Politico.  Fighting wildfires is a task that frequently requires many man-hours, expensive equipment, and the expensive transportation of men and equipment, yet at the same time, President Obama delivered a large amount of our money to the Muslim Brotherhood, which was at the time in control of the Egyptian government.  This is documented with an article on the website of the Cato Institute and a news story on a Trubune.Media newspaper.

Water Economics for students

This page was written on July 26, 2016.  At that time, my essay "Water Economics" on my main blog was receiving thousands of readers daily, and from many different countries around the world.  I wrote this page for students in elementary schools and middle schools, so that they would understand how the scientific principles that they were learning in school could be applied to the problem of the drought in California.  This same concept, using science to solve a problem that affects a large economy, is the basic concept of the original 2012 blog page "Water Economics'.

Paula Deen deserves justice. If you're going to boycott her for saying "the N-word" once, then boycott Jay-Z too, because he said it many times.

If you're willing to buy his music and willing to hear him say that word two or three times in one piece of rap music, knowing that he has other rap "songs" with the same word in them, knowing that he says other swear words in those other songs, and knowing that he has never apologized for anything that he has said, then buy her brand-name products, too.

She only said the word once.

10/05/14 update.  Paula is expected to launch a new digital television network.  Link to the June 11, 2014 announcement in the lifestyle section of Businessweek.

04/07/18 update.

This is a copy of a Fox News story about Jay-Z. It was uploaded on April 6, 2018.

It includes a clip from an interview he had with David Letterman, broadcast on NetFlix.

In this interview, he said,starting at 25 seconds, "We have to talk about why white men are so privileged in this country."
Immediately after the NetFlix clip is over, the Fox News host mentions that, according to Forbes Magazine, Jay-Z is worth close to a billion dollars, so is he the right person to question "white male privilege"?

A Forbes Magazine article about Jay-Z.  He is #1 on the Forbes list of the wealthiest Hi-p-Hop artists, and Forbes says that he is worth $900 million.

Billboard says the same thing.  Jay-Z is the wealthiest Hip-Hop artist of 2018.

Justice for George Zimmerman

I have some questions to ask you:

  1. Would you want to be arrested for a crime if the police didn't talk to anyone who witnessed the crime?

  2. Would you want to be
    • arrested and jailed by the police,
    • convicted by a jury,
    • and sentenced by a judge,
    when there wasn't any hard evidence of a crime?

  3. Would YOU want to be convicted by a jury and put in jail by a judge that didn't look at any physical evidence (injuries on both bodies, blood on the sidewalk, blood on clothes, gunpowder residue, etc.)?

  4. In order for anyone (I said anyone) to be convicted of a crime, certain things must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

    In this case, the evidence hasn't shown that George should be convicted of second-degree murder.

    Everybody who is accused of a crime should be considered innocent until a jury decides that he is guilty.


    Even you.

    If you would not want to be convicted and sentenced when the police have a small amount of evidence that you did the crime, why should he be convicted on such a small amount of evidence that he did the crime?

One of the hard facts of life

Whether you like it or not, the State of Florida has a "Stand your Ground" law.

It allows anyone (including George Zimmerman) to defend himself against an attack under certain circumstances.

It even allows anyone (including George Zimmerman) to use deadly force under certain circumstances.

This law was in effect on the day that Mr. Martin died.

Unless you want to be treated the way that you want to treat George, then let the jury decide whether he is guilty or not based on the evidence that  is shown to the jury.  This may be different than statements made on television by people who aren't on the jury and who aren't prosecutors in this court case.

Remember this?

It's in the Bible.

"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

These words are on the top of the front of the building where the United States Supreme Court does business:

Equal justice under law.

In other words, let the jury decide the case, and let them look at the evidence.

Only at the evidence.  The judge and the jury should ignore the color of George's skin.

If you want police, judges, and juries to ignore your skin color if and when you get arrested for a crime that you didn't commit, then police, judges, and juries should also ignore George's skin color.

By the way, I have been ignoring skin color for decades.

The previous sentence has a link to an essay about racism that I published more than a year ago.  It shows why everybody should ignore skin color every day.

Treyvon Martin would still be alive

... if he had looked like this on the day that he died.

(This isn't Treyvon.)

Instead of like this.

This IS Treyvon, showing his anger.

The first young man ISN'T showing any anger, probably because he doesn't have any.

If I was Treyvon's father, I wish I had raised the first young man instead of the second one,

because the first young man is still alive.

Why I am a Republican, by Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory

In his own words

These are some of his reasons for making the decision that was very easy for him to make.

In this video, he says that others have called it a "bold decision", but it wasn't very bold for him because he had so many reasons to make the switch.

Note: State Senator Guillory mentions race in this video, but because I do not believe in the concept, I will not mention any colors that represent the mythical idea of races.

In the order that he mentions them in the video:
  1. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement.
  2. The Republican Party believes that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.
  3. Frederick Douglas called Republicans "the party of freedom and progress".
  4. The first Republican President was the author of the Emancipation Proclamation.
  5. Republicans in Congress authored the 13th, 14th, and 15th, Amendments to the Constitution, giving former slaves citizenship,voting rights, and due process of law.
  6. Democrats were the party of Jim Crow.
  7. Democrats defended the rights of slave owners.
  8. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which was filibustered by Democrats in the Senate.
  9. At the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans.
  10. The left is only concerned with one thing - control, and they disguise this control as charity.
  11. The idea that anyone needs the government to get ahead in life is despicable.
  12. This idea is a failure.  Our communities are just as poor as they have always been.  Our schools continue to fail children.  Our prisons are filled with young men who should be at home being fathers.
  13. Our self-initiative and self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for our allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.
  14. Sometimes, I wonder if the word "freedom" is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.  Freedom is the idea that the economy must be free of government persuasion, the idea that the press must remain free of government intrusion, and it's the idea that the e-mails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure.  It's the idea that parents must be the decision-makers in regards to their children's education, not some government bureaucrat.  Most importantly, it's the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own efforts, free from government dependence and free from government control.  To be truly free is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny (he pointed to heaven).

"Please join with me in abandoning the government plantation and the party of disappointment, so that we can echo the words of one Republican leader, who famously said,
"Free at last, free at last.  Thank God Almighty, we are free at last".

- Elbert Guillory, who represents Louisiana's 24th District in their State Senate.

Who will be my 100th Twitter follower?

I am writing a new essay.  It will accuse Barak Hussein Obama of being a traitor to the United States, a bigger public enemy than any person on the F.B.I.'s "Ten Most Wanted List".  This essay will include evidence of the crime.

This is a very serious matter.  The U.S. Constitution allows for certain government officials to be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors" by the U.S. House of Representatives and then convicted by the U.S. Senate.  Any government official, including the President of the United States, who is impeached and convicted, automatically loses his job.

The Constitution names two crimes explicitly that can be used to impeach and convict those government officials and thus remove them from their jobs.

Those two crimes are treason and bribery.

I have decided to hold a contest.  The winner will have 24-hour exclusive access to this essay.

The contest rules

Up until now, all the essays that I have written, for any of my four blogs, have been available to the eyes and ears of the general public.  For the first time ever, I will change this policy.

In order to be this person:
  1. you can not already be one of my Twitter followers
  2. you must be a subscriber to my "Conserving the Nation" blog, and
  3. when my Twitter account has 99 followers, you must be the first person who becomes a new follower.  You will be my 100th Twitter follower.

The prize

The winner will see my new essay about Presidential treason 24 hours before anyone else (with the possible exception of some Google administrators and the National Security Agency).

To enter this contest:

  1. subscribe to this blog, (there is no cost)
  2. if you haven't already, sign up for a Twitter account,
  3. study the number of followers on my Twitter account (@BennyTheKite)
  4. When I have 99 followers, become a new follower and send my Twitter account a tweet that names your Google ID.

The first new Twitter follower after that date wins this contest.  I will then publish my new essay, but I will only name one person's Google account as being eligible to read it - the person who became my 100th Twitter follower.

Twenty-four hours later, I will re-publish the essay and allow everybody to read it.

About me

I am the author of four blogs.  One subscription allows you to read everything I write on any of them.
  • Conserving the Nation (begun in June 2012) conservative politics and fiscally responsible economics
  • I have to say this (begun in July 2012) a variety of topics
  • The Deity Dialog (begun in September 2012) theology and other religious topics
  • Conserving the Mobile Nation (begun in December 2012) short essays designed for mobile devices

The current situation

I have 94 followers as of June 15th.  Be my 100th !

Richard Nixon's second impeachment article

Articles of Impeachment were adopted by House Judiciary Committee on July 27, 1974, almost forty years ago.

President Nixon resigned about a week later, and Vice-President Gerald Ford became the new President.

The following text was copied from the website

The link in the last paragraph is on the original web page.

Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.

This conduct has included one or more of the following:
  1. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

  2. He misused the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Secret Service, and other executive personnel, in violation or disregard of the constitutional rights of citizens, by directing or authorizing such agencies or personnel to conduct or continue electronic surveillance or other investigations for purposes unrelated to national security, the enforcement of laws, or any other lawful function of his office; he did direct, authorize, or permit the use of information obtained thereby for purposes unrelated to national security, the enforcement of laws, or any other lawful function of his office; and he did direct the concealment of certain records made by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of electronic surveillance.

  3. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, in violation or disregard of the constitutional rights of citizens, authorized and permitted to be maintained a secret investigative unit within the office of the President, financed in part with money derived from campaign contributions, which unlawfully utilized the resources of the Central Intelligence Agency, engaged in covert and unlawful activities, and attempted to prejudice the constitutional right of an accused to a fair trial.

  4. He has failed to take care that the laws were faithfully executed by failing to act when he knew or had reason to know that his close subordinates endeavoured to impede and frustrate lawful inquiries by duly constituted executive, judicial and legislative entities concerning the unlawful entry into the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, and the cover-up thereof, and concerning other unlawful activities including those relating to the confirmation of Richard Kleindienst as Attorney General of the United States, the electronic surveillance of private citizens, the break-in into the offices of Dr. Lewis Fielding, and the campaign financing practices of the Committee to Re-elect the President.

  5. In disregard of the rule of law, he knowingly misused the executive power by interfering with agencies of the executive branch, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Criminal Division, and the Office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, of the Department of Justice, and the Central Intelligence Agency, in violation of his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

In all of this, Richard M. Nixon has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore Richard M. Nixon, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

Adopted 28-10 by the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives.

Summary of the Sample Articles of Impeachment

I wrote an essay in July 2012.  It is called Sample Articles of Impeachment.  That is a clickable link to it.  That essay was published with only a few impeachable offenses listed on the page, but I added more later.

It explains the impeachment process, along with the history of the three presidents who faced this process.

It also states a sample Impeachment Resolution, one step in the process.

Up until late March 2014, "Sample Articles of Impeachment" was the most well-read essay on any of my five blogs, but "Trojan horse legislation", published on March 20th, became the new winner among my readers about a week after it was published.

As of August 17, 2015 "Sample Articles of Impeachment" has been read 1,811 times.

That blog page has a long list of impeachable offenses committed by President Obama.  I didn't want to make the page too long, so I didn't include the negligent homicide of the U.S. Ambassador at Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.  That impeachable offense could be added later as a separate page on that blog.

Article Name
Article 1 - Treason
1a. An Executive Order that assumes some of the power that has been given to Congress exclusively

1b. "Fast and Furious", also known as sending weapons to Mexican drug gangs

1c. He disclosed classified material.

1d. Economic terrorism.  See also Article 5.

1e. He weakened our missile defenses.

1f. He allowed a drone military aircraft to land safely in Iran.

1g. He ordered the military to follow the commands of the United Nations.

Note: "Sample Articles of Impeachment" names a court decision that states that a judge who assumes power that belongs to somebody else (like the U.S. Congress) is committing treason.

Article 2 - Failure to Protect National Security
President Obama ordered the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement not to deport some people who were eligible for deportation under U.S. Law.  Some of them could be hidden terrorists, as proven by the recent attack in Boston.

See also Article 1e.

Article 3 - Failure to Guarantee First Amendment Religious Liberty
One of these five counts mentions lawsuits filed by twelve Catholic Archdioceses against Obamacare.  Each Archdiocese is named and linked.

Article 4 - Establishment of a Religion (Islam)
This is expressly forbidden by the U.S. Constitution.

Article 5 - Deliberate Economic Sabotage
He has flooded our country with illegal aliens and he has encouraged them to collect welfare.  This reduces the ability of schools to educate American children, it reduces the ability of American employers to give jobs to Americans, and it reduces the ability of American hospitals to care for Americans.  Other U.S. businesses are hurt by illegal immigration, which has dramatically increased since Barak Obama took office.

Article 6 - Actions taken without Constitutional Authority
6a. Twenty-eight Presidential Appointments were made without the necessary Senate confirmation.  One of them was Van Jones, who proudly says that he is a communist.
Note: Every one of these people are named, and each one has a link to an appointment announcement.  Glenn Beck did most of the research.
6b. The use of military forces to fight the government of Libya without a Congressional Declaration of War.  These actions were unauthorized by the War Powers Act, which is one of the laws he swore to uphold.

Article 7 - Larceny and Fraud

Article 8 - Violation of a Court Order
The Federal Communications Commission issued some regulations that were unanimously overturned by the District of Columbia Appeals Court, yet the FCC issued new regulations that were still in violation of the Order.

Article 9 - Contempt of the United States Congress
They have some exclusive powers under the U.S. Constitution, but Barak Obama has assumed some of those powers for himself.

Article 10 - Contempt of the United States Supreme Court
A Federal court determined that he was in Contempt of Court.

Misdemeanors, as a minor reason to impeach the President.
He imposed regulations on a union election.  They were later overturned by a Federal court.

He is responsible for the actions of his Labor Relations Board.

Total number of reasons to impeach the President (mentioned in "Sample Articles of Impeachment")

Note: This essay does not include any of the impeachable offenses that Barak Obama committed during the Benghazi murders.

That one incident could mean extra counts of treason, failure to protect the security of the nation, actions taken without the authority of the U.S. Constitution, and perhaps even negligent homicide.

The Watergate-style coverup of Presidential crimes continues today, which means his crimes continue, because the Obstruction of Justice is a crime, too.

President Nixon found out that no man is above the law.

President Obama needs to find that out himself.

Impeach him.
