Subject: Do you even qualify to be an American?
An open letter to Congress
Thursday, April 7, 2011
Please allow me to share the following as an open letter to all members of Congress. This letter was created after many Americans were asking what has happened to our beloved country, America the Beautiful? Home of the brave? Land of the free?
A strange contradiction seems to exist that is impossible for most of us to understand or further accept. That being the hypocrisy of the current administration.
For apparent political reasons, Mr. Obama’s administration consistently makes references to the successful American efforts to bring freedom to many parts of the world. As citizens, we tend to agree this is indeed a marvelous gesture, yet, considering that charity begins at home, we have to wonder at the progressive loss of our personal freedoms and liberty imposed in full view of the Congress. Now why is that dear Senator?
One reason to be sure is due to the rampant government corruption at almost all levels. Each day, the average American continues to lose more of the basic protections as provided for by the organic Constitution.
Just in the judiciary alone, just look at the list of political prisoners whose basic protections have been violated under this current administration. Meanwhile, the 111th Congress and now the 112th Congress would seem to ignore these abuses by our own government and idly accept this continuing travesty of justice; thus providing tacit approval of these criminal acts:
SBX211 State of California Government, senate, assembly and the governor appear to be guilty of public corruption as defined by the FBI.
Walter FitzPatrick III
Now Senator, the question that begs for an answer is…How can any self-respecting, decent, honorable and law abiding legislator stand by and ignore these heinous crimes against American citizens? How can this happen in America? What has happened to the Constitution and the rule of law? What has happened to permit members of government to ignore their responsibility to their oath of office? What has happened to the separation of powers between the three branches of government?
It is you, dear members of Congress who have the direct and irrefutable responsibility to protect the rights and the interests of your constituents. When can we expect you to begin to do the job for which you were elected? For which you are being paid! When Senator!
The clock is ticking and make no mistake dear members of Congress…We the People are watching! And We the People are through accepting occassionally being thrown a bone to keep us quiet!
There are many other examples to highlight…should the members of this great august body become interested in seeing that justice is served at home first. Many Americans now believe that instead of traipsing all over the globe resolving the rest of the problems in the world, including invading other sovereign countries without Congressional approval…it would be best to resolve many of our own important Constitutional issues like the eligibility of the person Congress has permitted to unlawfully occupy the White House. Now doesn’t that make perfect sense?
So to cut to the chase Dear members of Congress, we know you know King Obama is ineligible to serve as the legal president. So do you think you can really keep this conspiracy under wraps? Do you really believe you will be able to talk your way out of this act of treason against the American people?
This now leads into the opportunity to address the lost American values raised in this letter regarding a young Japanese child who demonstrated more strength of character than seen lately in American politics.
Thank you for sharing. Indeed it is very moving and a tribute to the Japanese traditional values. Values that at one time were reminiscent of American values; don’t you think?. To the credit of the Japanese society, these high standards and values are not only to be admired but also to be emulated.
As a paradox though, one must question the strength of character of the deceitful progressives who illegally have taken to currently occupy our White House and the halls of Congress. I find it so distressing and disappointing to even consider how our trusted elected officials, in turn, used the same good principles demonstrated by the little Japanese boy, to take advantage of the trusting people by whom they were elected to rob us of our freedom and liberty. Somehow this just does not seem fair.
Who would have expected our public servants to stoop so low as to apply tactics to deliberately mislead people into trusting proposals and legislation which appeared to be presented in good faith and as well intentioned. “Affordable Healthcare” for an example, is one such misleading piece of legislation where we were advised by Congressional leadership we would have to pass the legislation before we could tell what was in the law. But in fact the Congress imposed clever disguises of criminal fraud and foisted this miscarrage of justice upon the people of America; essentailly against their will.
It is amazing to me how we have permitted ourselves to be manipulated into this position. If that was not bad enough the real travesty is how our newly elected members of Congress continue to abuse the power we trustingly bestowed upon them in last November’s election. And how many within that august body continue to abuse the good will and trust of those who once more took the calculated risk to take them at their word and trust them.
It would appear that within the next few days We the People will finally understand whether or not our collective decision to trust the Congress one more time to do the right thing was indeed justified or just plain folly based on wishful thinking.
It would also seem to be fair that after the conclusion of the events of the next few days, depending on the fairness and the results, consistent with the will of the people, We the People will be fully justified to take what ever action is deemed necessary to reclaim out liberty.

Japanese boy teaches lesson in ethics and morality

THIS letter, written by Vietnamese immigrant Ha Minh Thanh working in Fukushima as a policeman to a friend in Vietnam, was posted on New America Media on March 19. It is a testimonial to the strength of the Japanese spirit, and an interesting slice of life near the epicenter of Japan’s crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. It was translated by NAM editor Andrew Lam, author of “East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres.” Shanghai Daily condensed it.
How are you and your family? These last few days, everything was in chaos. When I close my eyes, I see dead bodies. When I open my eyes, I also see dead bodies.
Each one of us must work 20 hours a day, yet I wish there were 48 hours in the day, so that we could continue helping and rescuing folks.
We are without water and electricity, and food rations are near zero. We barely manage to move refugees before there are new orders to move them elsewhere.
I am currently in Fukushima, about 25 kilometers away from the nuclear power plant. I have so much to tell you that if I could write it all down, it would surely turn into a novel about human relationships and behaviors during times of crisis.
People here remain calm – their sense of dignity and proper behavior are very good – so things aren’t as bad as they could be. But given another week, I can’t guarantee that things won’t get to a point where we can no longer provide proper protection and order.
They are humans after all, and when hunger and thirst override dignity, well, they will do whatever they have to do. The government is trying to provide supplies by air, bringing in food and medicine, but it’s like dropping a little salt into the ocean.
Brother, there was a really moving incident. It involves a little Japanese boy who taught an adult like me a lesson on how to behave like a human being.
Last night, I was sent to a little grammar school to help a charity organization distribute food to the refugees. It was a long line that snaked this way and that and I saw a little boy around 9 years old. He was wearing a T-shirt and a pair of shorts.
It was getting very cold and the boy was at the very end of the line. I was worried that by the time his turn came there wouldn’t be any food left. So I spoke to him. He said he was at school when the earthquake happened. His father worked nearby and was driving to the school. The boy was on the third floor balcony when he saw the tsunami sweep his father’s car away.
I asked him about his mother. He said his house is right by the beach and that his mother and little sister probably didn’t make it. He turned his head and wiped his tears when I asked about his relatives.
The boy was shivering so I took off my police jacket and put it on him. That’s when my bag of food ration fell out. I picked it up and gave it to him. “When it comes to your turn, they might run out of food. So here’s my portion. I already ate. Why don’t you eat it?”
The boy took my food and bowed. I thought he would eat it right away, but he didn’t. He took the bag of food, went up to where the line ended and put it where all the food was waiting to be distributed.
I was shocked. I asked him why he didn’t eat it and instead added it to the food pile. He answered: “Because I see a lot more people hungrier than I am. If I put it there, then they will distribute the food equally.”
When I heard that I turned away so that people wouldn’t see me cry.
A society that can produce a 9-year-old who understands the concept of sacrifice for the greater good must be a great society, a great people.
Well, a few lines to send you and your family my warm wishes. The hours of my shift have begun again.
