Me da pena el hombre física y mentalmente capaz, que no trabaja. En cualquier extremo de la escala social, lo desprecio…

Amenper: Los Esfumados Estados Unidos de América
La condición intrínseca de la persona no tiene nada que ver con la raza, el origen, la edad o el status económico.
Tiene que ver con su ética de trabajo y su responsabilidad.
Esto no cambia si la persona es negra, pobre o rica, vieja o joven.
El considerar a una persona inspire compasión porque es pobre, no es correcto, hay que considerar si la pobreza fue causada por algún factor válido o si fue causado por la falta de su ética de trabajo, por su vagancia.
El considerar que una persona inspira compasión porque es un pobre viejito, no es correcto, hay que considerar si durante su juventud fue una buena persona o no lo fue. Si fue un joven hijo de puta, lo más probable es que sea un viejo hijo de puta.
El considerar que un inmigrante de un país pobre inspire compasión, no es correcto, hay que considerar cuales fueron las razones que lo hicieron abandonar el país. Si era un delincuente en su país lo más probable es que lo sea en este. Hay que cuidar a quien le damos entrada en nuestra casa, hay que tener la casa en orden.
Creo que todo esto es evidente e indiscutible, todo el mundo lo sabe. Pero las políticas socialistas ven en esto una oportunidad de comprar apoyo repartiendo el dinero de los demás y avanzar su agenda.
Obama nos prometió que su gobierno sería el más transparente de la historia de los Estados Unidos.
Creo que ha cumplido su promesa.
Los Estados Unidos de hoy se están poniendo tan transparentes que ya no lo reconocemos, se están esfumando, desapareciendo poco a poco, en el horizonte de la historia.
Amenper: A Play of Fools
There is no contest between a successful businessperson and a socialist economist.
The idiotic centralized governments make socialists economic fools doomed to failure..
But when it comes to politics, the foolishness is in the capitalist shoe.
Because of a hard to understand eagerness of doing business with Cuba, we have to listen to businessmen in Washington telling us that the people who had wanted the Soviets to drop the bomb on this country during the 1962 missile crisis—no longer presents a threat to the U.S– No matter if the Castro’s remain as paranoid, power-hungry and pathological as ever. They want to forget that they may be economic fools, but they run a good business making the island available to criminal governments, like Iran and North Korea.
But…no matter if the enemy of the U.S. and buddy of Obama, Vladimir Putin, the Russia’s president who is trying to rebuild the Soviet empire traveled to Cuba, where he signed agreements to lease eight Russian jets worth $650 million to Havana and proposed some $30 billion in debt forgiveness and promised more military aid.
No matter what, we have to end the “failed” embargo and engage in doing business with Cuba.
“Fools” is a comic fable by Neil Simon, set in the small village of Kulyenchikov, Ukraine (Then Russian Territory), during the late 19th century.
When Simon wrote the fable, he could never imagined that the title and the country of the play would be so notoriously familiar years later in Washington’s politics..
Fool is, fool does, and Washington is today a play of fools.
Below you can read today’s column by Maria Anastasia O’Grady.
Good reading for us, but fools in Washington won’t read it, because it is not agreeable with their foolishness.
Putin Restores a Cuban Beachhead
The Kremlin and the Castros are chummy again, and Moscow is offering military aid. By MARY ANASTASIA O’GRADY
Cuban spy Ana Belen Montes was the highest-ranking Pentagon intelligence analyst ever to be busted for working for the Castros. What’s also notable, in light of Vladimir Putin‘s visit to Havana earlier this month, is that she was nabbed in 2001, long after the Cold War ended.
Besides leaking classified material and blowing the cover of covert U.S. intelligence agents, Montes seems to have been charged by her handlers with convincing top brass in Washington that Fidel Castro —who had wanted the Soviets to drop the bomb on this country during the 1962 missile crisis—no longer presents a threat to the U.S. Montes, who rose to become the U.S. military’s resident intelligence expert on Cuba, partly accomplished that mission. The Pentagon’s 1998 Cuba threat assessment played down its military and intelligence capabilities.
The best Cuba watchers were less sanguine..
Mr. Putin’s Cuba trip reinforces the point. The old Cold War villains are up to no good one more time.
Russia’s president is trying to rebuild the Soviet empire. Eastern Europe won’t cooperate and in Asia the best he will ever be is China’s junior partner. But in Latin America Mr. Putin’s KGB résumé and willingness to stick his thumb in the eye of the U.S. gives him traction. Colonizing Cuba again is an obvious move.

After the Soviet Union fell in 1991 and the gravy train to Havana was cut off, Fidel was furious with the Kremlin. It hasn’t been easy to get back in his good graces. In 2008 the Moscow news outlet Kommersant reported that Putin friend and Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin got the cold shoulder when he visited the island to work on “restoring full-scale cooperation.” Kommersant reported that the Castros were “displeased” that Russia had been talking up a military deployment to Cuba without Havana’s approval.
But it seems that the world’s most notorious moochers are willing to forgive—for the right price. With sugar-daddy Venezuela running into economic problems in recent years and Mr. Putin itching for a place in the Caribbean sun, Cuba has decided to deal.
In February 2013 Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev traveled to Cuba, where he signed agreements to lease eight Russian jets worth $650 million to Havana and proposed some $30 billion in debt forgiveness. Two months later, Russian Chief of Staff Gen. Valery Gerasimov visited key military and intelligence sites on the island. In August a spokesman for the Black Sea Fleet announced that the Russian guided-missile warship Moskva, the fleet’s flagship, had set off for Cuba and other ports in Central and South America.
Fast forward to February of this year. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that Russia had engaged in talks to establish military bases in Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba. The next day a Russian intelligence-gathering ship docked in Havana.
In May, Russia’s Security Council and Cuba’s Commission for National Security and Defense agreed in Moscow to form a joint working group. “The situation in the world is changing fast and it is dynamic. That’s why we need the ability to react promptly,” Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council, told the press. Cuban Col. Alejandro Castro Espin, son of Raúl Castro, led the Cuban delegation. In June Russia signed a space cooperation agreement with Cuba to allow it to use the island to base its Glonass (Russia’s alternative to GPS) navigation stations.
When he called in Havana this month Mr. Putin flaunted his intentions to restore a Russian beachhead in Cuba. The shootdown of the Malaysian Airlines flight on the same day that he ended his Latin American tour raised the visibility of a trip that was made for both psychological and strategic reasons. Mr. Putin wants to assure the Free World that he can be a menace in the U.S. backyard—and he wants a local foothold to make the threat real.
Mr. Putin officially wrote off $32 billion of bad Cuban debt on his trip, leaving just $3.2 billion due over the next 10 years. Russia is looking for oil in Cuban waters, and Mr. Putin signed new agreements in energy, industry and trade with Castro. Days after the visit he denied rumors that the Kremlin intends to reopen its old electronic-eavesdropping facility on the island.
That’s cold comfort, even if you believe him. Satellite technology has made land-based listening posts obsolete in many ways. Far more troubling is the emergence of Mr. Putin as a Latin American presence. Tyrants all over the region, starting with the Castros, admire his ruthlessness and skill in consolidating economic and political power. They want to emulate him. It’s a role model the region could do without.

This Small Town Just Took A Big Stand Against Obama
Upon announcing his intention to hobnob with supporters in Medina, Wash…
Barack Obama recently hit a roadblock in his ongoing campaign to attend fundraisers across the nation. Upon announcing his intention to hobnob with supporters in Medina, Wash. earlier this week, city leaders explained that they will not force local taxpayers to pay for the associated expenses of his visit.
Ads by ClickForSAleAd Options
“We love welcoming people to what we THINK is one of the most attractive communities in Puget Sound,” said City Manager Mike Sauerwein.
While visitors might be welcome, however, he insisted that it should be at their own expense.
“We just don’t feel that we should be passing the cost of the events to our citizens,” he said.
Saurwien explained that, with previous presidential visits, taxpayers have had to pony up tens of thousands of dollars to pay for added police coverage and other incidental expenses. He urged the city council to pass that expense on to Obama’s host, former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal, for this event.
Every member of Medina’s small police force will be assigned to working the fundraiser, aided by state and county law enforcement officers. While he could not estimate what the total cost would be prior to the event, Saurwein did know who would be receiving the invoice.
“We just don’t THINK that’s a cost that should be passed on to taxpayers,” he said, “so we are going to be billing the host of the event for that cost.”
As Western Journalism reported, Sinegal has been a longtime Obama supporter going back to his tenure as Costco CEO, having donated a total of $200,000 to Obama’s campaign and an affiliated political action committee ahead of the 2012 presidential election.
Sinegal was even invited to speak at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
The company came under fire earlier this month, in part because of its close ties to Sinegal and, by extension, the Obama administration.
When conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s recent book, “America”, was unceremoniously stripped from Costco shelves just as his corresponding documentary opened in theaters across America, many concluded that the move could have stemmed from the retailer’s inherent disdain for his anti-Obama viewpoint
Amenper: “ Mi madre dijo que siempre debo ser intolerante con la ignorancia pero comprendiendo al analfabetismo. Porque personas, que no pudieron ir a la escuela, eran más educados y más inteligente que los profesores de la Universidad. “
― Maya Angelou
Tuve la oportunidad de oír personalmente a Maya Angelou posiblemente en una de los últimos discursos que dio antes de su muerte en mayo de este año.
Fue en la graduación de mi nieta Sara en la universidad de Vanderbilt.
Maya era demócrata y liberal, pero de la vieja guardia. No era comunista y era cristiana profesante. Antes a diferencia de ahora, podías tener ideas liberales sin ser comunista.
En sus poemas y escritos nunca se vio el odio virulento y revanchista que vemos en los negros militantes de hoy en día.
El pensamiento de arriba me hace recordar algo que me sucedió estando en el downtown de Miami con una de esas personas que se ajustan a lo que dice Maya.
Era un amigo, mayor que yo, campesino de Cuba, amigo de mi padre. Cuando estábamos entrando en un parqueo en la acera nos tuvimos que parar por un negrito arrogante que nos dio una mirada altiva y se tomó su tiempo para dejarnos pasar.
Mi amigo dijo un epíteto y una exclamación que para qué mencionar aquí.
Yo le dije, mira lo que pasa es que los negros aquí sufrieron mucho en el sur con los blancos que los tenía segregados y discriminados.
Entonces me dijo, si pero sería a sus padres y abuelos no este negrito hijo de puta.
Esa es la sabiduría de mi amigo campesino, que no pudo ir a la escuela pero fue más educado y más inteligente que yo en ese momento.
Absolutely Jaw Dropping !!

Amenper: Digitalizan expedientes médicos: se ha convertido en una zafra para los ladrones.
La nueva maravillosa idea de la administración Obama para digitalizar los registros médicos (a un costo de $ 24 billones), presenta una situación de exponer lo que antes era un privilegio entre el médico y el paciente en una exposición de no sólo las condiciones médicas pero la información privada del social security, dirección postal, tarjeta de créditos, fecha de nacimiento y otros datos que quedan expuestas en la internet abiertas para fraude.
Los expertos de crimen cibernético dicen el peligro es inevitable.
De nuevo la administración de Obama obliga a los ciudadanos a bajarse los pantalones y enseñar el trasero
Los hackers utilizando una dirección IP chino ya se han conectado al sistema de salud de Texas, exponiendo los datos de más de 400.000 personas.
Desde 2009, con aplicación de la tecnología de información de salud económica y Clinical Health Act, más de 31 millones de estadounidenses han tenido sus registros médicos expuestos al robo o divulgación de datos personales no autorizados.
El resultado de con esta medida es una apertura al mercado negro de millones de personas. Considerando que los ladrones podrían robar dólar por un número de tarjeta de crédito robada, con un perfil de identidad completa de un expediente médico puede obtener hasta $500, dicen los expertos. Y la diferencia es que una tarjeta de crédito, puede ser cancelada, la información contenida en un expediente médico no puede ser revocada.
Dada la naturaleza del delito cibernético, es incomprensible que el mandato de los registros médicos electrónicos que crean un componente significativo de la seguridad personal pueda implementarse. Solamente en una administración que no tiene respeto a la privacidad de los ciudadanos se puede ver una disposición como esta.
. Así que ahora salud y servicios humanos (Obamacare) tiene cobro de multas por no someterse a infracciones de seguridad. Muy reconfortante.
El portón del solar queda abierto y con este gobierno, y no se cerrará fácilmente.
Ricardo Samitier: MAIL OF THE YEAR
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:
“Let me see if I’ve got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behaviour, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages and instil in them a love for learning.
You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.
You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play,
and how to register to vote, balance a chequebook, and apply for a job.
You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behaviour, and
ensure that they all pass their final exams.
You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps,
and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Arabic or any other language,
by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.
You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few
books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for” New Start.”
You want me to do all this, and then you tell me……
I CAN’T wear a little cross or say “Merry Christmas” because someone might take offense? “
Did Obama’s Biggest Nightmare Just Become Reality?
This movement could end up being bigger than the Tea Party.
PAGES: 1 2
Under Obama’s Dream Act, he declared that he wouldn’t deport underage illegal immigrants already living in the United States.
Ads by ClickForSAleAd Options
Of course, the illegal immigrants in the United States were elated by the news. Many of them phoned home requesting for friends and FAMILY to join them.
Well, hundreds of thousands answered the call and are now swarming across the border. And the surge has completely overwhelmed America’s child welfare and foster care system.
In response, Obama – believing he would face less opposition by shipping these immigrants to big cities – turned nearly the entire country into pseudo border states.
So what was once a problem in Arizona and Texas is now also a problem in Illinois, California, and New York.
INDEED, Obama’s “dream” has quickly become a nightmare. And his strongest supporters are now turning their backs on him.
Lies, Lies, Lies
The political left has claimed that these children are leaving Central America because of violence.
Ads by ClickForSAleAd Options
Don’t believe it…
A recent government intelligence assessment compiled via interviews with detained illegals concludes that 95% “cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. IMMIGRATION LAWS granting free passes or ‘permisos’ to UAC (unaccompanied children).”
By comparison, the violence affecting black children in America’s inner cities is far worse than anything being faced by these children from Central America.
On such merits, black leaders across the country are actually denouncing Obama as a result of the ongoing immigration crisis. They believe that if Obama can find money to spend on the child immigration crisis, he should also be able to find more room in the budget for helping at-risk children who are here legally.
Speaking from Chicago, Reverend Jesse Jackson said, “If we can find $4 billion for those children – and we should – we can find $2 billion for Chicago. There are more children involved, and more have been killed, and more have been shot.”
Just over the Fourth of July weekend, nine people were killed – and 60 injured – in the ongoing eruption of violence in Chicago.
And it’s not just the BLACK COMMUNITY that’s feeling shunned. A coalition of homeless activists in Los Angeles are also upset – feeling neglected as city officials rush to find housing for illegal immigrants.
Before we start taking in “refugees” from other countries, maybe we should start focusing on the refugees in our own backyard.
Free Immigration and a Welfare State?
Many on the left CONTINUE to quote the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”
The problem with open borders today is that the system has dramatically changed.
In 1886, when the Statue of Liberty was gifted to the United States, we had no welfare system. Immigrants knew they had to work to make it in America, and they certainly did!
Today, we have a highly developed welfare system that gives these children money we cannot afford.
As America’s brilliant economist, Milton Friedman, once postulated: “It’s just obvious you can’t have free immigration and a welfare state.” The immigrants coming today are an immediate cash drain on an already-overtaxed welfare system – shoving American children out of the way to make more room for them.

- Aleman: Scary Obituary In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, which is) always followed by a Dictatorship.””The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.” NOTICE THAT WE ARE RIGHT ON SCHEDULE!!! The obituary follows: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA- Born 1776 – Died 2014
R.I.P. It doesn’t hurt to read this several times. Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by
Square miles of land won by:
Population of counties won by:
Obama: 127 million
Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Professor Olson adds:
“In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low Income tenements and living off various forms of government Welfare…”
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and Apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of Democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase..
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million Criminal invaders called illegal’s – and they vote – then we can say Goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years. If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message. If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how Much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our Freedom..

Top Obama Aide Just Admitted Obama Really Could Be Impeached
…senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer explained…
Following a pair of polls showing that a significant number of Americans support Barack Obama’s impeachment and removal from office, a high-ranking White House source expressed concern that such an effort will pick up steam. In a statement to reporters Friday, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer explained that he no longer looks at impeachment as a GOP pipe dream.
“I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president,” he asserted.
While Pfeiffer acknowledged that many in D.C. would “laugh that off,” he took a much more realistic view of the fledgling effort among GOP leaders.
“I would not discount that possibility,” he said.
He went on to explain that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to sue Obama for his excessive use of executive power will likely keep the issue at the forefront of many Americans’ minds.
“Speaker Boehner,” Pfeiffer said, “by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future.”
He concluded that Obama’s own policy initiatives could also make the possibility of impeachment more appealing to Republican lawmakers.
“I THINK that if the president enacted immigration reform, that would certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” he reasoned.
In the end, impeachment is a notion that Pfeiffer said the administration takes “very seriously,” stating that he is against the pursuit of any such measure.
“But I think it would be foolish to discount the possibility that Republicans would at least consider going down that path,” he concluded Read more at http://www.westernjournalism.com/revelation-proves-white-house-worried-impeachement/#Z8sPLIvdEzcgwjQM.99
