Getting Ready... Just in Case

Viewpoint - October 29, 2008
(see above link) Edwin Vieira, Jr. talks about Obama's situation, and about the Berg v. Obama decision. From the link- I paste a partial short biography: "He holds four degrees from Harvard: A.B. (Harvard College), A.M. and Ph.D. (Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences), and J.D. (Harvard Law School). For more than thirty years he has practiced law, with emphasis on constitutional issues. In the Supreme Court of the United States he successfully argued or briefed the cases leading to the landmark decisions Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, Chicago Teachers Union v. Hudson, and Communications Workers of America v. Beck, which established constitutional and statutory limitations on the uses to which labor unions, in both the private and the public sectors, may apply fees extracted from nonunion workers as a condition of their employment." (links to other articles he has written - also note he is not picking only on Obama... he has recently called candidates McCain, Huckabee, Obama, and Clinton "four very dangerous idiots".) ;)


From the John Birch Society

It is difficult to weigh in on the issue of the "natural born" citizenship status of Barack Obama without sounding like a GOP partisan or a sore loser supporter of Hillary Clinton.

We do however want to make people aware of the Constitutional crisis that would ensue if, after November 4th, it was determined that president-elect Obama was found short of meeting the strict application of "natural-born" citizenship status. In such a case, we would be presented with a situation far more serious than in the contested 2000 election. (more...)

And about polls- "Polls: Obama or McCain Is Winning" by Steven M. Warshawsky - He writes about how polls make people think an election has been 'stolen'.


Anyway, we'll have to see what happens on Election Day.

Now, time for something a little bit different... B)

Happy Halloween! I think the video below shows how wacked people can be! :)

Pictures of Coco

Coco, my chocolate girl! :)
Two years old.

Don't understand why the color of her tongue is so hot pink. Must be the auto color thingie on the camera and the fact that the picture is so monochromatic.

Semavi Vasi Coco
This was taken the same day I did Bella. Coco is lot more solid. She is lean, but not near as thin as Bella.

Semavi Vasi Coco
Another view.

Semavi Vasi Coco
Here are L-R, Bella and Coco. They were both looking at the camera but Bella looked at her sis, just when I shot the pic. Sorry that it's a toupee type shot (aerial, not at their level and featuring the tops of their heads!) But the missed shot was really cool and would have made a nice close-up blog shot with my walker edited out. They were looking up at me with the same expression and heads close together. You could see how similar their head shapes are.

Coco looks so monochromatic next to sis Bella. Both are black masked fawns, except Coco got a (recessive) variant of black pigment, that doesn't go 'all the way to dark', so any parts of her that would be blacker, get the shade of chocolate instead. (chocolate, liver, or brown... all are names for the same variation on black color in Anatolians)

ouch
Coco at five months. (Click picture to make bigger.) Just for comparison.

I love Foxsaver

I love Foxsaver! (Click picture to make bigger.)

Don't you hate it when you've just got your Netflix Harry Potter movie from the Mail Chopper, and you've been dying to watch it on your wireless; you've set out a little dish of blubber for snacking pleasure and then your nosy neighbor drops by, bringing all her kids?

Forensics of Logic vs Faith based Election

I had a good laugh when I peeked in various forums. I was amused at various breakdown in logic. Scenario: the typical poster is supposedly trained in scientific method or otherwise has some other profession which normally requires a significant amount of hard tangible evidence. Many of these generally fit the mold of those who have issue with 'faith based' history or evolution and engage in lively debate on the same.

The funny thing is that the same people abandon logic and science, indeed, tangible evidence and fact finding -- over the simple matter of Obama's real birth certificate. I'm only addressing the question of is he or isn't he, natural born. People tend to lose focus, emotions take over -- *POOF* (as another friend used to type) -- none of their previous rules to support scientific skepticism need apply at this point! :rotfl: Some realize this and have a good laugh at their human side. :)

Here's a birth certificate on a car btw. Vrroooom!

It is 'about faith' in that certificate of live birth, for example. There's no further proof needed to validate Obama's 'natural born' status... since 'its all up there' on a given website they name or perhaps he wrote it in 'His Book' which of course... ohhh, careful now... :)

Anyway, one thing that people seem to be confused about, is that the computer print out showing that the state of Hawaii has a record on him does not provide verification of his birth in that state. Even that car's certificate has more info on it. LOL.

See
A Hawaiian birth certificate

Medical officers (or doctors) present, the mom (and dad if present), would sign above documentation to verify a birth they witnessed. You know... like a signature and all that. ;) The hospital where the baby was born would be noted as well.

A friend wrote about her father's birth certificate. In the case of that one... in the early 30s when he was born, there were a lot of home births. My friend's grandmother's name was on the certificate and her grandfather is listed as the 'MD'. Grandad was not actually an MD but these little forms are pretty concise and since he was probably present or nearby when his son was born, and since the forms are filled out by civilians in any manner they choose and only signed by doctors if doctors were involved, then that certificate only validates the info the parents put on the paper. It is not necessarily true.

A mom with a homebirth, going to the hospital with her new baby would be handed a questionaire card to fill out and sign. She can put anything she wants on it. And even call the father an alien from Mars if she believes that. BUT if a doctor is present for the birth, the attending physician signs these things. It is not a form that the hospital fills out by inventing answers. It's like when you have HMO situation and they hand you a clipboard when you walk in. Except for a baby, ideally this clipboard is only filled out once. LOL

None of the information which validates a native birth is in Obama's widely circulated computer generated summary. It really is only "a certification" of the existance of a certificate. The conjecture is that Obama's mom was in Hawaii at some point after Obama's birth, and that he may be born in Kenya. The 'piece of paper' currently flaunted is not valid evidence for a US born birth.

The hospitals are required to disclose all births and deaths. Even marriages that are in the newspaper will not have enough information on the people involved to draw conclusions on the residency of the persons documented.

According to the college records of Obama's mom, she was not in Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth, and the link with info on that has some nice pictures of Stanley Ann and her family. The page also raises another ponder: Who's yo daddy? Check it out.

??? Gack!

A lot on my mind, I can't be motivated to put it into words here.
Very interesting stuff going on.

Governor of Hawaii sealing the records? (Has this anything to do with Obama's recent trip to Hawaii? -more likely Corsi's wording of the Governor's announcement?)

Credit card fraud? Stuff that's got to be in the news, you think?

Shame Cubed -although the quote below is not the main point of the linked message, the issue about reporting is so true. It's a lot easier to get a misidentified dog, labeled as a 'pit bull attack' in the news, than to have journalists engaged in investigative reporting. Or even balanced reporting in areas of national politics? (emphasis below in color, is mine)
I know that this person does not have teams of highly paid professionals, does not work out of a corner office in a skyscraper in New York, does not have access to all of the subtle and hidden conduits of information … who possesses no network television stations, owns no satellite time, does not receive billions in advertising dollars, and has a staff of exactly one.

I do not blame Barack Obama for believing in wealth distribution. That’s his right as an American. I do blame him for lying about what he believes. But his entire life has been applying for the next job at the expense of the current one. He’s at the end of the line now.

I do, however, blame the press for allowing an individual citizen to do the work that they employ standing armies of so-called professionals for. I know they are capable of this kind of investigative journalism: It only took them a day or two to damage Sarah Palin with wild accusations about her baby’s paternity and less time than that to destroy a man who happened to be playing ball when the Messiah decided to roll up looking for a few more votes on the way to the inevitable coronation.

We no longer have an independent, fair, investigative press. That is abundantly clear to everyone — even the press. It is just another of the facts that they refuse to report, because it does not suit them.
An Alaskan Republican senator is bigger news to some news sites, along with their usual sticky drooly slavering over their coddled candidate. Go figure.

Obama sued Citibank Under CRA to Force it to Make Bad Loans - an older link still on my mind.

Yep... what happened to individual privacy that was going to prevent us from listening in on terrorist conversations? Congress put up a fight over that, but it IS okay to hack into Palin's private email acct (done by the son of a democratic official) or use gov't computers to destroy "Joe the Plumber" , a private citizen because he asks a tough question of a presidential candidate? - who has now been blackballed and cannot get a job. Obama has talked about how negative our constitution is.. but you will not hear that in the news. The press is definitely not giving us a full story on any issue these days. Our own Channel 9 here in FL has been 'censored' by the Obama campaign because they did not like the questions asked of Biden. Will any opposition pressed be silenced forever if Obama is elected? We are indeed losing our individual rights and our press no longer gives us balanced reporting. The incidents sound more like Cuba or Russia - destroying private citizens and silencing the oppostion. Children in uniform chanting the glories of a presidential candidate. And my own Union newspaper praising the Marxist philosphy (ant that is a quote) of a presidential candidate! This should raise an alarm to all Americans.... what is happening to our beloved county?   

Blogger Semavi Lady sent us a woof // October 28, 2008

Obama said his government was about change! People want smooth talking icon to look up to, but actually more of the same secretive, selective, predjudicial stuff as before. They just want to vote for it this time. LOL :D   

Bella update

Bella, alert, active and on watch. Been having a hard time getting weight on this girl but we're getting there.

Bella in October
It's not unusual to have a young Anatolian that is skinny. A picture from today. Bella's still way skinnier than I'd like.

Previously her owners fed aromatic canned food to stimulate her appetite. She picked at even that and left it partly uneaten - sometimes only giving it a sniff and not eating, and then she would guard anything she didn't eat. In a multidog setting, that just can't be done since it annoys the rest of the civilians including me, so during the first week I had her, I put her uneaten food away or fed the rest of it to the others at another meal. And started Plan B.

Plan B? Within a week after she arrived, I started putting Bella with her chocolate sister, Coco in the same area to do chow. The competitive aspect of that, having another dog snarfing up chow in the proximity of her bowl, is what got her stimulated to eat. ("EAT! or it will be eaten!) Now she snarfs down her chow, has a hearty appetitite, but still has a bit of a way to go in the weight department.

Bella
Pretty Bella.

Yuri Bezmenov (ex KGB ) on demoralization and What Happened to Freedom?

"Yuri Bezmenov on demoralization", by Edward Griffin - 1984
partially quoted, from link-

This shocking video transcription exposes KGB's subversive tactics against western society. In this interview, Yuri Bezmenov explains how Marxist ideology is deconstructing America's values, destabilizing the economy, and provoking crises in order to sovietize the free world.

video:


When Yuri is asked his opinion on fixing the problem as he defines it, he says-

YURI: Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain [to] them the real danger of socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government.... The moment at least part of [the] United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government, and I'm not talking about sending letters, signing petitions, and all this beautiful, noble activity, I'm talking about FORCING [the] United States government to stop aiding Communism.... and it is very easy to do; no credits, no technology, no money, no political or diplomatic recognition...



Freedom comes with the need to be responsible for ones behavior. So much of this was driven home when we were fighting AB1634 here in California, where extremists were trying to put blame for a perceived problem on responsible pet owners. However, significant portions of recent chaos at ground zero in my life has had everything to do with Agenda 21. If you're not familiar with what that is, here are some helpful links.

What Happened to Freedom? (Canada Free Press article)
Very few people know that this transformation of values is the result of policies that originated in the United Nations. In 1976, the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements adopted a 65-page policy document, signed by the United States, which said:

  • Public control of land use is indispensible
  • Redistribute population in accord with available resources;
  • Control land use through zoning and land-use planning;
  • Excessive profits from land use must be recaptured by government;
  • Public ownership of land should be used to exercise urban and rural land reform;
  • Owner rights should be separated from development rights, which should be held by a public authority.
  • All of these, and many more recommendations from this conference, are now completely incorporated into local ordinances and state laws.


    Some more links... not just Santa Cruz, but all across California to Alabama, Australia too - we are being forced to give up our rights. Do you take scenic byways for granted?

    Sustainable Development and the Fraud of Free Trade...
    The United Nations is a communist organization and their agenda is communism. Their function is to hire the central planners for the global economy and publish the instructions to the domestic organizations that exist to support their agenda. We can tell how successful they are at distributing and implementing their plans by the conditions on the ground of the U.S. economy. That would be 24,000 people applying for 400 Walmart jobs in Oakland, Calif. 8,000 people applying for a similar number of Walmart jobs in Phoenix, Arizona. Record bankruptcies. Record debt. Record home foreclosures. Skyrocketing property values as they pump the market to drive up prices and then pull the rug out from under property owners. The list goes on...


    Here's the agenda again: http://freedom.org/reports/human-settlements/

    Yuri is right? Did you vote to support the Agenda?

    More Obama Chaos - interesting stuff

    Over at ObamaCrimes.com, Philip J. Berg, Esquire, has made a press release dated 21 October, 2008, regarding the allegations in Berg vs Obama.

    Some of which content is as follows:
    Press Release: Obama & DNC admit all allegations in Berg v. Obama
    Tuesday, 21 October 2008

    Obama & DNC Admit All Allegations of Federal Court Lawsuit - Obama’s “Not” Qualified to be President

    Obama Should Immediately Withdraw his Candidacy for President

    For Immediate Release: - 10/21/08 - Complete contact details and pdfs of this press release and motions filed by plaintiff Berg today are at the end of this article

    (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/21/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

    Berg stated that he filed Requests for Admissions on September 15, 2008 with a response by way of answer or objection had to be served within thirty [30] days. No response to the Requests for Admissions was served by way of response or objection. Thus, all of the Admissions directed to Obama and the DNC are deemed “ADMITTED.” Therefore, Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President.

    OBAMA - Admitted:

    1. I was born in Kenya.

    2. I am a Kenya “natural born” citizen.

    .......[see allegations link above for more]


    Related wierdness, I also finally got around to reading what African Press International has claimed was text from a phone call by Mrs. Obama (in which the caller gives very evasive response to this). Reminded me a bit of the shrill stuff that Kerry's wife was all about not so long ago, from another election, on a different planet, far far away???

    Pretty serious stuff for allegations, and if it is true that Obama isn't qualified after all, I'm not sure how an election can get more chaotic.

    I know chaos. We had a governor recalled in California, and had 135 candidates to pick from in October 2003 for our for our new Governor. I have scans of the ballot here, zipped. (905 KB )

    Nearly 100 Pit Bulls Killed After Dog Ban - Jacksonville, Arkansas

    Nearly 100 Pit Bulls Killed After Dog Ban - KTHV | Little Rock, AR

    a part near the end says...
    As for pits like Rock, the shelter says it's seeing an increase of them without a legal place to call home. Jacksonville says before it passed its pit bull ban, they saw an influx of pit bulls because people were moving to town from other areas that already had bans in place.
    And you know they aren't just killing 'pit bulls' but 'anything goes' whatever they feel like calling a given dog.

    Time for a spot of Earl Grey!

    Bintie had just blogged this quiz, and I figured if it were short enough, I'd do it too.

    Okay... only one page of questions. Yay. I wasn't surprised to see that we both scored the same character and while taking the test, I had a feeling I knew which Sci/Fi character I'd score after reading the first few questions. Ah, so much for diversity! But then I'm not well read in Sci/Fi -- So I thought maybe that the list of characters wasn't comprehensive. But after taking the test and seeing so MANY other characters available, I did quite a double take!

    Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

    Deaf, ASL, captioned, funny video logs (VLOG)

    The good news is that some of the issues causing stress around here are resolving. I'm still having other stress due to the backlog that has built up in other projects, but I'm so glad for all the great friends and support I've had. There's light at the end of the tunnel.

    Since I don't watch TV, often the way I kick back and try to relax is just try to address some emails and also continue to try to self tutor in learning ASL, not that it's very useful for me, since few people I know use it. However it is a beautiful language and the skill of some that use ASL just knocks me off my feet (OMG, I'll never get to be half that good!)

    For example, I've been trying to follow along with noncaptioned ASL videos at random, at YouTube, and while I'm not doing so hot... I discovered one lady who blogs with video (VLOG) and uses ASL. A few of her best and funniest VLOGs are also text enabled with open captions. Happy Hands (her handle) is not deaf, nor is she CODA (child of deaf adults) but she's immersed in ASL, is very expressive and quite an inspritation. I won't be up to her caliber any time soon but here are a couple of her VLOGs that really cracked me up. :)

    Ask my husband, I'm one of those people that really JUMP when startled, so the following VLOG hit close to home. :D





    Now the VLOG that follows is just amazing! Our story teller's expression is one thing by itself, but the story probably added years to my life due to all the laughing I did!



    That's all for now!

    Hello
    Sorry I guess I jumped the gun with the offer to help....I can't figure out how to e-mail you directly...my husband is a firefighter and has been gone and I just spoke with him about the foster care, we are currently looking to buy a female pup to protect our new family, we have a two year old and a 6 week old sons, I thought it would be a good idea to have the dog for the little boy but my husband thinks he and our son would get attached to the dog, I'm very sorry....hope he gets someone to care for him.

    Toni, that's really okay.

    If you'd ever like more info on the breed, see the rest of my website. I only have a rescue (Molly) with an unknown background and Bella here right now that need homes, but if you'd like some breed info and to meet other Anatolians in your area, just check out the rest of my website and I can send you more info about what you might be getting into, to have an Anatolian. I do have an email form here.

    This can be a difficult breed to own, due to their independence. I have lots of pics of Anatolians with kids though. :) Here.

    Help! Interim Home Needed, Meet Leo, in San Diego

    Leo and friend
    Here's a sweet photo of two young guys who look like great pals.
    Leo is the Anatolian and he is a year old and he needs help! His family wants to keep him. But they are going through rough changes and unfortunately, the loss of their home is part of the package. Ouch!

    Mom and son (above) want to keep Leo, but they need a nice foster home to park Leo in for the interim. Six months might do it. A location close to San Diego would be the greatest but a home is needed soon.

    If anyone would like to contact them, please write me and I'll put you in contact with the owner.

    Growing up together...
    Leo!

    400
    Friends!

    Dogs, men 'play' same game to woo women-Man-Woman-Relationships

    Man-Woman-Relationships-Lifestyle-The Times of India

    I have some old weirdly fuzzy / grainy digital pictures of Ruya, the girl (left), manhandling Boone, the boy (right). These were taken when both stars of the show were about a year old and after they badly abused a paper bag of dog fur from Zor that was going to be tossed after I finished working on their Uncle Aslan.

    I had to laugh about the above Times of India article since at least with big dog folk, this craziness is pretty well known. And it's part of the reason that boy-girl pairs work better than having a girl/girl or boy/boy pair if you like to have Anatolians in stereo. :)


    Ruya taking a big chunk out of Boone's cheek!

    Here's some of the text from the article:
    Just like men, dogs too know how to win ladies’ hearts – and that too from a young age.

    According to a new study, while playing, young dogs let the female pups win, even if the males have a physical advantage.

    They might lose the game in the short run, but they could win at love in the future.

    The experts found that male dogs place themselves in potentially disadvantageous positions, which could make them more vulnerable to attack, and researchers suspect the opportunity to play may be more important to them than winning.

    Infact, the gentlemanly dog behavior is even accompanied with a bow. "We found that self-handicapping tends to occur in conjunction with play bows," the Discovery News quoted lead researcher Camille Ward, as saying.

    "A play bow is a signal that dogs use when they want to communicate playful intentions to a potential play partner," added Ward, a lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan and director of About Dogs LLC. She is also author of the forthcoming book, Relationship-Based Dog Training.

    He who shall remain nameless, sent me a link to yet another one of those tests that sort people into categories. I didn't expect to be over half way nerdy. But it's funny anyway.

    I am nerdier than 98% of all people. Are you a nerd? Click here to find out!
    Short, fun, statistically irrelevant, and didn't include a hearing test. What more can I ask? ;)

    EDIT: Oct 7, 2008- OMG, I've done this test before (I just knew it seemed familiar!) and I had forgotten!
