Jon Voight on Barack Obama Teachers

“The Democrats have targeted young people, knowing how easy it is to bring forth whatever is needed to program their minds. I know this process well. I was caught up in the hysteria during the Vietnam era, which was brought about through Marxist propaganda underlying the so-called peace movement. The radicals of that era were successful in giving the communists power to bring forth the killing fields and slaughter 2.5 million people in Cambodia and South Vietnam. Did they stop the war, or did they bring the war to those innocent people? In the end, they turned their backs on all the horror and suffering they helped create and walked away.
Those same leaders who were in the streets in the '60s are very powerful today in their work to bring down the Iraq war and to attack our president, and they have found their way into our schools. William Ayers is a good example of that. “

Dual Citizenship Tolerated

See to read July 2008 article by Edward J. Erler “Birthright Citizenship and Dual Citizenship: Harbingers of Administrative Tyranny”

“Framers of the Fourteenth Amendment specified that those who are naturalized must owe exclusive allegiance to the U.S. to be included within its jurisdiction. And the citizenship oath taken today still requires a pledge of such allegiance. But in practice dual citizenship—and dual allegiance—is allowed."

Lobby Senator Obama on Retroactive Immunity for Telecommunications Companies

Senator Barrack Obama once vowed “to support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies”. Citizens who would like to express their views to Senator Obama should go to his website and express their views.

Senator Obama has reversed his position and I congratulate him. I have sent Senator Obama an email thanking him for supporting President Bush’s policy to use intelligence agencies to find terrorists who threaten Americans.

With no terrorist attacks for almost seven years since September 11, 2001, taking an aggressive approach against the enemy has certainly made us safer. Companies asked by the United States government responsible agencies to cooperate should not be subjected to harassing lawsuits.

Regardless of your views, let Senator Obama hear what you think.

There’s No Such Thing as Race

Regarding Stephen L. Carter Op/Ed article July 6, 2008 Affirmative Distraction, if we want to transcend race, to get past race, why don’t we just stop talking about race?

After all, science now tells us that “There’s No Such Thing as Race”, the February 8, 2008 article by Jennifer Millman ( “Science shows that 99.9 percent of our DNA is the same, according to the National Human Genome Research Institute.”

Is Senator Barack Obama black? Why would anyone categorize someone who has a father from Kenya, Africa and a so called “white” mother from Kansas as a black person? It comes from the slavery “one drop” of blood rule intending on keeping the “white” race pure.

It makes no sense in 2008, and we should all move on, and as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said in 1963 that people should “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

New York Times: Rosy Data on Racial Progress

New York Times Op/Ed article July 6, 2008 Affirmative Distraction by Stephen L. Carter at

■ “Those who suffer most from the legacy of racial oppression are not competing for spaces in the entering classes of the nation’s most selective colleges. Millions of them are not finishing high school.”

■ “America fought over slavery. America fretted about Jim Crow and finally put a stop to it.”

■ “Some of the data on racial progress are rosy, and deserving of celebration. In the past decade alone, according to the Census Bureau, the number of black adults with advanced degrees has nearly doubled. More than half a million more black students are in college today than in the early 1990s. Since 1989, the median income of black families has increased more than 16 percent in constant dollars. In the years since the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act, the black-white gap in test scores has narrowed, and is now smaller than it has ever been. The black middle class has never been larger.”

Iraq Surge Worked. Now That’s Change You Can Believe In

Veterans Group for McCain, see Washington Post July 6, 2008 article, it includes:

■ “An ad by a group called Vets for Freedom, whose members served in Iraq and Afghanistan, may help Sen. John McCain in states that look to be hotly contested.”

■ “The ad features eight veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan and the mother of a soldier in Iraq. ‘We changed strategy in Iraq,’ one of the soldiers says in the ad. ‘And the surge worked. Now that's change we can believe in. We need to finish the job. . . . No matter who is president’."

US Military Deaths in Iraq - Deaths Will Not Have Been in Vain

It is of course terrible when a member of the United States armed forces dies. We all grieve the loss of 4,113 US soldiers in Iraq. If their efforts lead to a democracy in an Arab country, it will very much be in the strategic interest of the United states. A democratic Iraq could transform the Middle eat and be very important for world peace. The US soldiers will not have died in vain.

“President Bush and Osama bin Laden both assert that Iraq has become the central front in the war on terror, though for different reasons.” (NBC's Brain Mooar reports. Sept. 8, 2007)

The US military has often taken huge losses for nothing. An example is the World War II six week Battle of the Bulge. The US Army was confidently marching towards Berlin and intelligence failed to detect a massive NAZI counterattack. We did win the battle which lasted from December 16, 1944 to January 25, 1945, however, American losses totaled 84,323. 19,276 were killed, 41,493 wounded, and 23,554 captured or missing.

Serving in the US military during peacetime has always been a dangerous profession. During President Jimmy Carter’s last year in office 2,392 died. The Armed Forces was much larger then, but that is a lot of deaths.
