The gang activity in Cleveland,TN has resulted in a MS 13 gang burned body murder within the area. The gang activity in Cleveland,TN is also suspected in the January 23rd vicious murder of a "immigrant" (legal or illegal?) owner at the business Viva Mexico on Keith Street. The manner in which this person was killed should be revealed so that citizens can know the dangers of the gang activity in Cleveland. The large numbers of illegal aliens living and working in Cleveland and Bradley County, the MS 13 and other gangs that follow and include them, and the front page USA Today story, "FBI: Burgeoning gangs behind up to 80% of U.S. crime" should give all residents of Bradley County a great reason to be concerned.
We must have E Verify to help weed out illegal aliens who are taking the jobs of the American people and stealing services, including medical through fraud and stolen identities. The billions that illegal aliens take within the United States and the billions that they send out of the United States are desperately needed now. The crimes that they commit, the gangs, the drugs, the smuggling, the murder, rape, drunk driving needs to follow them to their own countries and be dealt with by their governments.
There are many more quotations to support the claim that the United States was founded by individuals who followed Judeo/Christian beliefs. While not preferring one religion over another, our nation shows its belief in a God of the Bible. Documents, currency, buildings, monuments, etc. bear this out as truth.
The majority of the people of this nation declare themselves as Christian and therefore, if the people believe in God and Jesus, and they have since our founding, then Sheriff Gobble's statements, as many other lawmakers and elected officials are only a commentary on what is evident at the Supreme Court, other official buildings, and in the halls of Congress. These public statements on the walls of our courts and other institutions support the Ten Commandments and other Bible based beliefs.
The organization that Mr. Rob Boston represents is against crosses to honor state patrol officers who have died in the line of duty. Pray for him and his organization. Pray too for Sheriff Gobble to stand against the slings and arrows of those who want to shove God more and more out of our nation, and who want to eliminate the mere mention of the name of Jesus.
Left wing liberals and atheists are always quick to attack and they are given a big platform in the media to spout their hate and anger at God and at Christians. Thank you Sheriff Gobble for not backing down. Your comment was great about not caring about some left wing nut in California and your right to freedom of speech.
For some reason Jesus Christ scares the left. His power, his ability to change people's lives threatens these people. In my opinion, the ACLU, left leaning professors, and think tank liberals seem to desire to destroy the foundations of our nation and to have some type of revisionist history. Americans need to stand up and push back against anti-American speech, and proudly defend and proclaim the virtues and the goodness of our nation and the right of free speech, even to Christians. Our Presidents, our Congressional leaders, all elected, and others have said and still say some of the very same things that Sheriff Gobble stated, because they do have freedom of speech. When Barack Obama takes the oath of office on the Bible that President Lincoln used, another man who loved God, he will be placing his hand on a Bible that declares Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
How great for these individuals to achieve this reward for their efforts to complete and further their education. There are obstacles or situations in life which can interrupt a person's education, and REACH seems to provide another opportunity to succeed. Continuing one's eduction gives self esteem, greater job and wage options, and it can create a goal for future generations to go farther. It gives people a reason to dream and go on to greater things if they desire.
Adult education should be supported because it benefits us all and it can help some individuals and families to break out of poverty and to have greater choices for their futures.
Congratulations to all of the graduates, to their families, and to the teachers and staff at REACH. It truly is inspirational.
The Governor should send a strong message on illegal immigration and start verifying that those receiving benefits are entitled. Fraud, stolen social security numbers, and illegal aliens taking tax dollars for free services and benefits. Over 300 million dollars going to illegal immigration. What a huge savings if the illegal aliens did not burden the state. Mandated use of E Verify and SAVE would be a great start.
So we pay millions for VW to come to Chattanooga, and then we may pay millions or billions more for them from bailouts. Where does it all end? A good question asked of GM at the Congressional meetings with the big three was whether or not they had asked Mexico and China for a bailout. And if they get the bailout will they just ship more jobs to Mexico and China? Made in Mexico, shipped to the United States and American workers out of jobs. Profit to GM.
Is there a bailout that Senators Corker and Alexander do not like? Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the TARP, the auto industry, the banks, where does it end? Tennesseans are being taking for a big ride with our Congressional Leaders pulling the bailout wagon. Senator Corker seems to offer some tough questioning at times, and then he succumbs to the robbers of the American taxpayers. He and Alexander will go and do the same thing again unless the voices from rational Tennesseans can reach the elite, out of touch mentality of these Senators and Representatives. The Unions whose voices are the loudest for the support of this whopper bailout, support Democratic candidates and more government handouts while Americans are suffering and trying to meet their obligations. Bankruptcy will allow for reasonable wage reductions and ongoing benefits, and it will help to eliminate the weight of the current Union obligations that cripple companies and keep them from surviving and prospering for all.
And how smart was it for all three auto executives to fly to Washington by private jet? We want to keep our big salaries and our lifestyles, and please fill up this very large tin cup American people.
Tennessee needs to eliminate the fraud that is rampant in so many benefits. It needs to require citizenship for those free services that illegal aliens are currently accessing through fraud and stolen social security numbers. It should acquire the free government programs E VERIFY and SAVE (Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlement) to help verify those who are here legally.
The American citizens are part of the biggest bail out in history and they will need the jobs, wages, and services that may be necessary to keep their lives going and their families safe and secure.
