Rosemary Potter: Protecting our rights

Advertisement

To the editor:

I thank John Williams for his warning about Hillary Clinton signing the United Nations Small Arms Agreement on July 27. This will be a travesty against the Second Amendment and the sovereignty of the United States of America.

I tried to call our senators, and was able to leave a message on Senator Mark Udall’s machine.

I could not get through to Senator Michael Bennet. I am going to write both of them a letter, urging them to stand against our president and Secretary of State Clinton, who obviously care nothing about our rights.

Will you join me in writing? 

The addresses are:

• U.S. Senator Mark Udall

Hart Senate Office Building, 

Washington, D.C., 20510

• U.S. Senator Michael Bennet

702 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C., 20510

It takes only a few minutes, and it doesn’t have to even be in proper English. Just let them know what you think.  

If you value your right to own a gun, you’d better speak up.

What is wrong with you people I own lots of guns but you ought to read these things first before you allow yourself to be manipulated.This is the TRUTH “the exclusive right of States to regulate internal transfers of arms and national ownership, including through constitutional protections on private ownership.” The fact is, this treaty will affect the international arms industry. Groups that want to legally sell guns and fighter jets abroad will, indeed, have to do more to make sure that those guns and fighter jets don’t end up in the wrong hands. But your everyday average gun-owning American will not have any interaction with this treaty.

Gee! Rosemary needs to learn to do fact checking and use snopes. Passing this kind of tripe off as factual exposes a deep unquestioning belief in dogma.

Does the editor of the Daily Press ever do any fact checking?

"I don't trust anything our government does."

Hmmm, anarchy?

DHS is a cabinet department of the United States federal government, not a "military force," not a "law enforcement agency." NOTHING HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED YET. NO NEW LAWS EXIST. This is only an announcement of what they plan to do in the future. What the policy is: Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice officials will: Review all cases pending before the immigration courts. “Low priority” cases may be administratively closed. “High priority” will be prosecuted more aggressively. No rules or regulations exist that certain cases will be considered “low” or “high” priority. In the future, review cases before immigration court proceedings are started. “Low priority” cases may not be referred to the court. Issue new rules or guidance on cases for people who have a final order of removal/deportation.

The following criteria should be satisfied before an individual is considered for an exercise of prosecutorial discretion :•came to the United States under the age of sixteen; •has continuously resided in the United States for a least five years preceding the date of this memorandum and is present in the United States on the date of this memorandum; •is currently in school, has graduated from high school, has obtained a general education development certificate, or is an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; •has not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise poses a threat to national security or public safety;and •is not above the age of thirty. www.dhs.gov http://www.scribd.com/doc/97202376/Janet-Napolitano-DHS-Memo-6-15-12

"Deportation of illegal immigrants increases under Obama administration"

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/12/obamas-record-high-deportations-draw-hispanic-scorn/

Since 2009, the annual average number of deportations has approached 400,000, according to the Department of Homeland Security. That’s double the annual average during President George W. Bush’s first term and 30 percent higher than the average when he left office.

Romney won't say he'll overturn immigration order

The Republican presidential candidate was asked several times in an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation" whether he would overturn the executive order issued Friday if he's elected in the fall. He refused to directly answer.

"It would be overtaken by events," Romney said when pressed for the second time by moderator Bob Schieffer during the interview taped Saturday while the former Massachusetts governor's bus tour stopped in Pennsylvania.

He explained the order would become irrelevant "by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis."

Maybe we'll get another Reagan type amnesty from one or the other.

Disagree all you like, you're the one who said, “I don't trust anything our government does.” If you had read the memo, you might realize that there is no disagreement. Of course, that was a government memo and not to be trusted. You're beef is with the president using the authority of his office. Your "evaluation" of a policy change. Well, the new boss is the same as the old boss and the next boss will be the same as the current boss, no matter which corrupt political party they come from. A plutocratic corporatist and the top executive with what you might consider to be dictatorial powers. The system insures it. Live with it, leave it or change it if you can. Good luck.

Law enforcement is run the same as military. In the military, the Provost Marshal is chief of police and there is a chain of command from Provost Marshal on down. In LE you have a chain of command from the chief/director on down with captains, lieutenants, sergeants, agents and so on. Neither organization is in any way democratic but more dictatorial.

("Hillary Clinton signing the United Nations Small Arms Agreement on July 27.")

Let us know when she signs it, today, and then when it will be brought before the Senate for ratification by two-thirds of the 100-member Senate, or 67 votes. Only then does a treaty become law and well over 50 Senators have already voiced opposition.
