Fear dominates life in Mexico’s deadliest city

Fear dominates life in Mexico’s deadliest city

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) – “Not one person murdered yesterday,” Ciudad Juarez’s leading newspaper proclaimed in a banner headline. It was big news in this border city, ground zero in the drug war – the first time in 10 months that a day had passed without a killing.

But by the end of that day, Oct. 30, nine more people were riddled with bullets.

Violent death is a part of life in Ciudad Juarez, a seedy, dust-cloaked metropolis on the banks of the Rio Grande. Bloodied bodies hang from overpasses, and children walking to school stumble across hit men filling targets with lead.

While there’s no definitive comparison of murder rates in cities around the world, there’s no question Ciudad Juarez is now among the deadliest. It has had about 2,250 killings this year, a rate of 173 per 100,000 residents. That compares with 37 in Baltimore, the deadliest U.S. city with a population of more than 500,000.

Fear dominates life in Mexico’s deadliest city

Yesterday, December 5th, there was a vicious rumor offered up by a person that shall remain unnamed. He told one of my friends to be VERY careful in dealing with me because I am a racist that has, in the past, called for the deaths of ALL that cross our borders illegally.

He went on to tell my friend that he thought I had *mellowed* since I had stopped ranting about ILLEGAL immigration and the INVADERS that are destroying our nation.

He is wrong!

I have NOT mellowed, in ANY way. I just grew tired of ranting about something that a supposed GOP POTUS was ignoring and I knew that there was no sense in wasting my time making posts now that Barack Hussein Obama is temporarily in the Oval Office.

I STILL believe that our borders need to be manned by well armed troops. I STILL believe that any and ALL persons crossing our border at anything other than a LEGAL Port of Entry need to be shot on sight as foreign and hostile INVADERS!

I also said in the past that I don’t give a DAMN about what happens to these invaders when they are wandering around in the heat of the desert southwest. That hasn’t changed either.

And for the record, ILLEGALS are NOT a race, they are a people. How can I be a racist for my beliefs against a people? Wouldn’t that make me a *peopleist*? Just sayin’… :P

You see, I don’t hate any particular RACE of invaders, I am an equal opportunity hater, I hate ALL ILLEGAL invaders, no matter where they come from, no matter their pigmentation, no matter their reasons for coming to this nation. If they are NOT here legally, they are criminals, as such, they need to be punished AS criminals.

Of course we all know that is just not going happen.

There are far too many bleeding heart libbers, and a few FAUX Conservatives, that haven’t got the GUTS to stand and defend this nation. The FAUX Conservatives, better know as RINOs, are as intent on destroying this nation as are the Islamic Jihadists that permeate the fabric of our once great nation.

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

NATICK, Mass. (AP) – A white police sergeant who arrested renowned black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. said Thursday he’s disappointed President Barack Obama said officers acted “stupidly,” despite acknowledging he didn’t know all the facts.

Sgt. James Crowley responded to Gates’ home near Harvard University last week to investigate a report of a burglary and demanded Gates show him identification. Police say Gates at first refused and accused the officer of racism.

Gates was charged with disorderly conduct. The charge was dropped Tuesday, and Gates has since demanded an apology from Crowley.

Obama was asked about the arrest of Gates, who is his friend, at the end of a nationally televised news conference on health care Wednesday night.

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

If my understanding of this is correct, the professor was seen trying to enter a home, HIS home, and doing so by breaking in because he had lost, forgot or misplaced his house keys. I can’t fault the good doctor for that, been there myself on one occasion.

Gates later went on to say that the door was jammed. Maybe so, I can’t argue that fact one way or another, but in ANY case, he was making a forced entry into a residence, be it his or that of someone else. A forced entry was made.

A neighbor apparently saw an *unknown* individual committing what appeared to be a break-in, into a residence that is, as I understand it, in a high crime area, and said neighbor did the right thing and called the police.

And again, IF my understanding is correct, officers responded and caught Dr. Gates in the process of breaking into what turned out to be HIS home. The officers detained him, Dr. Gates told the officers that it was HIS home, the officers demanded PROOF of such and at this point Dr. Gates went off on a hate and invective filled racist tirade and was arrested for disorderly conduct. If I have ALL of MY information correct that is.

Henry Louis Gates Jr. may well be a renowned black scholar, but apparently the responding officers didn’t know him. Those officers were well within their line of duty by demanding identification from Gates. Suppose there really had been a break-in and suppose the perpetrators had told the responding officers a tall tale of being the owner of the home? And suppose the officers acquiesced to those tall tales and left the home to be burglarized unabated?

What would Dr. Gates have said then?

Gates has said he was “outraged” by the arrest. He said the white officer walked into his home without his permission and only arrested him as the professor followed him to the porch, repeatedly demanding the sergeant’s name and badge number because he was unhappy over his treatment.

“This isn’t about me; this is about the vulnerability of black men in America,” Gates said.

He said the incident made him realize how vulnerable poor people and minorities are “to capricious forces like a rogue policeman, and this man clearly was a rogue policeman.”

Of course Gates was outraged, real life jumped up and slapped him in the face. He wasn’t fawned over by those that knew and respected him. He was subjected to every day, run of the mill, good law enforcement by officers that were doing the job they were hired to do, that job being to SERVE and PROTECT the citizens and property. So, yes, Dr. Gates, it IS about you, whether you like it or not. All you had to do was produce some identification and the cops would have bid you good day and left you in your academic world of respect and privilege.

Dr. Donald Kent Douglas: Troublemaker or Hypocrite? YOU Decide

Dr. Donald Kent Douglas: Troublemaker or Hypocrite? YOU Decide

I had a post up for 4 days,
Hurricane Ike: The Projected Path and I received several very good and much appreciated comments, one of them was from Dr. Donald Kent Douglas, a supposed gentleman, and someone that did his level best to bring as much discord as possible to my blog and that of several other really nice folks recently.

A few weeks ago, when Southern California had their last earthquake, I made a comment on Dr. Douglas’ blog wishing him and his family well, despite our differences. Dr. Douglas did not allow that comment to stand.

Then this comment was made by Dr. Douglas on MY blog:

comment number 14 by: Americaneocon September 13th, 2008 at 12:22 am
Returning the concern, Texas Fred, although Ike looks way more dangerous that a little ole’ SoCal earthquake.

Bless you and your family!

My wife’s in Fort Worth on business, flying out, back home, in the morning. Let that damned ‘cane fade before landfall, and then we can pick back up the conservative blog wars, you old coot!

And MY response was this:

comment number 15 by: TexasFred September 13th, 2008 at 12:27 am
I hope she gets out of Ft Worth early, there is talk of closing DFW possibly, the storm winds may be 50-60MPH after noon..

Thank you, sincerely, for the concern, and all the best to you and yours as well…

And as far as I was concerned, that was that. Well, apparently not. Today I posted this thread, A few thoughts on Hurricane Ike *VICTIMS* expressing my thoughts on the *Victims* of IKE, and this is the comment I got from Dr. Douglas:

comment number 16 by: Americaneocon September 13th, 2008 at 6:25 pm
What’s the matter you old hypocritical coot!??

I wish you well and you don’t even let the comment through. What a chickenshit!

Wouldn’t wish the hurricane on you or yours, but of course, I never would call folks the names you do, nor shoot to kill immigrant babies on sight, nor would I advocate sending Amy to the hospital to have an “operation� to rid her of whatever evil you think she’s got in her.

But hey, don’t send the comment through, okay, you lilly-livered old wreck. It’s your blog and your blog hate ring, so do your own damned thing man.

To which I replied to Dr. Douglas with this email:

date Sep 13, 2008 7:01 PM

subject: I want you to SEE something…


The comment you made IS showing, as is my rather nice response to you and yours… Just when I think you may actually have a bit of sense and maybe it’s showing, you do crap like this… And NOTE the time stamps too Donald… The post was a STICKY and it rolled off, the one you made your ridiculous comment on IS a totally different post…

3 year olds call names and throw fits, supposedly grown men make sure of their ground before they start a fight… Where does THIS leave YOU??

Your original comment AND my reply are HERE:

Your ridiculous rant is HERE:

I can’t wait to hear the excuses for this, but I am gonna let the last comment stand, and post the original one too, now folks can REALLY see you for what I have long suspected you to truly be!!

And this will be forwarded to several people that DO need to know as well… How’s that shoe leather taste Donald?

Beware of the so-called Conservative Dr. Douglas, he IS a FAUX Intellectual and he IS still a troublemaker that would rather call names and make unfounded accusations as opposed to being a man and offering an apology…

Dr. Donald Kent Douglas IS a hypocrite and I believe it is time for many to see him for the despicable cretin he really is! The full text of both posts and ALL comments can be found on these links: &

I didn’t want this, I didn’t start this and I am not going to sit idly by and allow myself to be insulted by a cretin that has NO shame and knows NO dignity!
