Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

"Der er et yndigt land" (There Is A Lovely Land)


Words by: Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager
Music by: Hans Ernst Kr?yer
Adopted: 1844

"Derer et yndigt land" was first performed for a large gathering of Danes in 1844, and became popular quickly with the Danish people. It was adopted later that year by the Danish government as a national anthem, but not the sole national anthem. This anthem is on equal status with "Kong Christian",which is both the national and royal anthem.

When the Danish anthem is usually performed or sung, the first verse is played in its entirety, then it is followed by the last four lines of the last verse. (This is true whether the lyrics are sung or not



Recentlty I have been posting music to Illustrate the Diversity of America, this week I have a different motive to express Solidarity with DENMARK


I maintain my Support of Denmark, and will later today, post links to and my thoughts about a Danish Editorial "We are being pissed upon by Per Nyholm "

I think I shall title my Post, "There is no "But" in "Freedom of Speech".




When I first started upon my journey through the blogverse I created a
Statement of Purpose
Now upon reading it, one can realize that I did not hold to every detail of that original statement, but from it's basic premise, I have never swayed, in my belief that the Blogs are in fact the Committees of Correspondence of the Second American Revolution.

And that it is a Revolution of Information, no longer can we afford and allow elite gateways to control what we can see, hear and discuss.

For I believe that those bloggers who find their way, here and in particular from the Blogs associated with Sam.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.

Some of us are more Serious, some of us are more lighthearted and some post the common ordinary things that make one smile and recall that Life without the simple things to treasure is meaningless.

And it is important that all have a platform from which to speak.

We CAN Clean Our Own Toilets
I caught the THE TOILET BRUSH CAMPAIGN on Michelle Malkin this evening.




"Earlier this week, open borders L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa gave a divisive speech on behalf of illegal alien protesters in which he declared:

"Today we say to America: We've come here to work: We clean your toilets. We clean your hotels. We build your houses. We take care of your children. We want you to help us take care of our children as well."
Many law-abiding L.A. residents who clean their own toilets took umbrage at Villaraigosa's McCain-like contempt for self-reliant Americans and his us-vs.-them militancy. Now, there's a campaign underway to answer Villaraigosa.

With toilet brushes.

KFI's John and Ken show has details of the "Amnesty Brush-Off."

Reader Jeff M. e-mails: "So many people are sending in toilet brushes that prices have been climbing (even on Amazon where toilet brushes have been hitting the # 1 spot on their sales charts)!"

Some nice ones available here and here.


I have yet to find it to look up an Illegal Alien to clean my toilet, but maybe this gentleman (?) has no idea what is entailed in this process so I joined a multitude of my compatriots and sent him the above tool via amazon.com.

You think he might figure it out?

I see that great minds think alike. I discovered I was tardy on this issue

Cross posted from Freedom Watch and The Uncooperative Blogger
UPDATE: I just followed an outclick on my sitemeter account and realised I ordered my toilet brush too quickly, without reading the whole page
It turns out there were "2 used & new available from $1.33"
Now sending a USED toilet brush to that Mayor would have been a really nice touch, anyone who has not placed their order yet? Have at it. ;-)

Should Illegal Aliens Determine the Presidency of the United States?
That is not a rhetorical question, but one based on the political reality we have allowed to develop as a result of the massive influx of illegal and legal immigrants into this country over the last 20 or so years

The truth is the Democratic Party holds seats in the House of Representatives, they would not hold otherwise as a result of the massive influx of illegal aliens into the country and in particular into Democratic held portions of the country over the last generation. The Illegal Aliens cannot vote of course, but never fear the Democratic Party votes in their name.

True Socialist System that. The People have no vote, but the Elite make decisions in their name.

I have related some of this issue arising from the fact that Congressional Apportionment, is at the present time, decided not by the enumeration of Citizens in the Census but by counting ALL residents, Citizen, Resident LEGAL Alien and ILLEGAL Aliens, in my previous posts.

The Curious Case
of Congressional Apportionment

and

When They Stole
the House of Representatives
from the Citizens of America


My good friend Debbie Hamilton at Right Truth echos my sentiments in

It's not about immigration, it's about power



On my journey of exploration of this topic an invaluable resource has been the Center for Immigration Studies.

In
Remaking the Political Landscape
The Impact of Illegal and Legal Immigration
on Congressional Apportionment



We find statement such as

"Illegal immigrants can't vote or contribute to campaigns, but they wield considerable yet little-noticed political clout by shifting congressional seats to California at the expense of other states"

"The report argues that because the census counts all residents, including people here illegally, the congressional apportionment process is skewed in favor of states with the most illegal immigrants. That also tilts power in presidential elections, since the Electoral College is based largely on House seats. Counting all noncitizens, legal and illegal, skews the figures even further, they say."


"The inclusion of all noncitizens in the census, including people here legally, gave the four most immigrant-heavy states nine seats they otherwise wouldn't have gotten -- six for California and one each for Florida, New York and Texas. North Carolina would just barely miss gaining a seat under this scenario."



It is said a Picture is worth a thousand words so let me illustrate the issue pictorially.

Here is an active gif showing the political alignment of the last two Presidential Elections





Here is map of the Distribution of Non Citizen over the United States.





This is color coding for the NonCitizen Distribution Map




Please tell me I am not the only one who sees a correlation here?

I am now going to ask a varient of the question I posited in
When They Stole the House of Representatives from the Citizens of America.

Should the Balance of Power in the House of Representatives and the Presidency of the United States of America, be determined by persons who are NOT Citizens of the United States of America?



YES Or NO

No buts, no long involved explanations,equivocations, or evasions.

Answer YES or NO.


And if your answer is NO?

What then?

After Thought__If the above pictures do not shake you awake, maybe this one will






Yes indeed if what you see in that photo is what you want for this country,by all means, vote Democrat, and I will see you
on the other side of the barricades.

When They Stole the House of Representatives from the Citizens of America
No this is not a title of a new Conspiracy Movie, nor Fictional Novel, but IS the Reality of how our Government has been perverted over the last generation.

IN

The Curious Case of Congressional Apportionment



I related how Congressional Apportionment is determined not just by a Census of Citizens, but also Aliens including ILLEGAL Aliens.

I plan to go into more detail, but before I do I have one question to ask.


Should the Balance of Power in the House of Representatives of the United States of America, be determined by persons who are NOT Citizens of the United States of America?



YES Or NO

No buts, no long involved explanations,equivocations, or evasions.

Answer YES or NO.

to be continued.

Note: You will also find this line of reasoning and question at Right Truth in Illegal Immigration Ignorance because it was the result of a series of emails between the two of us. An excellent example in my opinion of how this thing of ours should work

The Curious Case of Congressional Apportionment
There is a word, synchronicty, which means,
"Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related, conceived in Jungian theory as an explanatory principle on the same order as causality."


I think of it as seemingly random bits that collapse into meaning. First comes something that prompts the reaction, "That's strange." then the Universe starts dropping in the remaining pieces of the puzzle.


Recently in Big Lizard's The Continental Divide

This caught my eye,

"The Continental Divide
Immigration , Kulturkampf
Hatched by Dafydd
There are two basic camps on immigration; the camp you choose typically determines your positions and priorities.

Illegal immigrants are essentially criminals.

Illegal immigrants are essentially thwarted freedom-seekers.

There is an interesting geographic dispersal about these camps: the first is primarily found in states that have very few illegal immigrants, the second primarily in states that have a very large illegal population -- though of course there are campsites of each in each type of state."


If true, it is strange that portions of the country not effected by the illegal alien invasion would be more emphatic on reversing this trend than those areas where the influx was much greater.

What might prompt this phenomena? Is it that the Blue States are more compassionate, more sensitive, more altruistic, while the Red States are more selfish hard hearted and mean spirited? Or could there be some other causative factor in play?

Could there be a reason other than compassion for some Political Leader to WELCOME
the present massive influx of illegal aliens?


Then a small still voice whispered to me, "Congressional Apportionment", and the pieces to the puzzle started dropping into place.


Question: What is apportionment?


"Question: What is apportionment?
Answer: Apportionment is the process of dividing the 435 memberships, or seats, in the U.S. House of Representatives among the 50 states.


Question: Who is included in the apportionment population counts?
Answer: The apportionment calculation is based upon the total resident population (citizens and non-citizens) of the 50 states. In Census 2000, the apportionment population also includes U.S. Armed Forces personnel and federal civilian employees stationed outside the United States (and their dependents living with them) that can be allocated, based on administrative records, back to a home state. This is the same procedure used in 1990"


Q: Do aliens count as "persons" under the 14th amendment's apportionment of representatives?

"This is an interesting recurring question I get every once in a while and, unfortunately, been too occupied to answer. There has been talk to change "persons" under section 2 of the 14th amendment to read "citizens." Michigan Republican Rep. Candice Miller introduced a constitutional amendment last year that would change the 14th amendment to allow only "citizens" to be counted instead of "persons." The section in question reads as follows:

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Strictly speaking, there is nothing terribly wrong with this section of the fourteenth amendment as it stands because the States lost nothing outright due to its adoption. Also, a State cannot be held liable for disenfranchising anyone who is not a citizen of the United States under this section. The insertion of the word "persons" obviously confuses the entire section; even more confusing is the fact "persons" replaced the word "citizens" because that word was found even more confusing in the year 1866."

*************************************************

"It indeed defies logic why millions of non-citizens who violated federal laws to reside in the country illegally could be counted for purposes of State "



Count on it: non-citizens?even illegal aliens?are included in the Census. Think this affects the political system?

"NOBODY in the House of Representatives has more constituents than Denny Rehberg. With some 900,000 people in his district--which encompasses the whole state of Montana--his population base is almost 50 percent larger than that of the typical House member. To complicate matters further, only Don Young of Alaska represents a larger geographical area. "It's a real balancing act," says Rehberg, a Republican. "I find that there're three sides to every two-sided issue."

It would be a lot easier representing all of these citizens if congressmen actually represented citizens. But they don't, or at least not exclusively. Under the current rules of apportionment, the 435 House seats are divvied up on the basis of the total number of people living in each state--not just citizens, but also noncitizens and even illegal aliens. It's hard to believe: People whose very presence in the United States is against the law are granted formal representation in Washington.

This is the root cause of Rehberg's predicament. Montana doesn't have a second congressional seat because so many illegal aliens live in places like California, which receives three extra representatives for the 2 million illegal aliens who call it home. And Montana isn't the only loser in the zero-sum game of congressional apportionment. Indiana, Michigan, and Mississippi are also shy a seat in the House because of illegal aliens residing elsewhere, according to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies.



Most Americans don't realize that their democracy redistributes political power based on the settlement patterns of illegal aliens and other non-citizens. But these changes are significant enough to shuffle around a bunch of seats in the House of Representatives and perhaps even alter the outcome of a presidential election. If the next race for the White House is as close as the last one, it's possible that the federal government's practice of treating illegal aliens the same as citizens for purposes of apportionment will wind up costing George W. Bush the presidency.

The 2000 Census counted 18.5 million non-citizens, including an estimated 7 million illegal aliens. If these people were evenly distributed around the country, they would have no impact on how House seats are assigned. But immigrants tend to cluster in ethnic communities. Nearly 30 percent of America's non-citizens live in California, for example, compared with 12 percent of the total U.S. population. These non-citizens--most of them legal immigrants--are enough to boost the Golden State's congressional delegation by six whole members. Florida, New York, and Texas also gain one extra seat apiece because of their large non-citizen populations. Nine states lose out: Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Wisconsin.

Aside from the compelling matter of principle involved, these apportionment schemes distort our politics in other ways: Democrats benefit. That's because noncitizen apportionment allows the creation of congressional districts full of people who don't have the right to vote--and Democrats almost always win in these places. Consider California's 31st congressional district, where 41 percent of the inhabitants are non-citizens. Last year, Xavier Becerra--one of the most leftwing members of Congress--carried it by attracting fewer than 55,000 votes, despite its population of 639,000. In many congressional districts, the winner needs two times this level of support. Steve Sailer of UPI crunched the numbers for California's whole delegation: In the eight districts won by Hispanics (all Democrats), an average of 80,000 voters went to the polls. In the other 45 districts, an average of 143,000 turned out--that's 79 percent more.
"


There you have it folks for a generation now the balance of power in our government has been artificially skewed to the benefit of one particular Political Party.

Any attempt to correct the massive influx of illegal aliens would by the Nature of the present rules of Apportionment cost the Democratic Party up to 20 seats in the House of Representatives.

No wonder we keep hearing over and over again,


It is impossible to deport 12 million illegal aliens.

As a matter of fact it is not. All that needs to be done is shut down the draw of illegal employment, do a better job of border controll and initiate planned deportation that EXCEEDS the number entering.

It took 20 years for this mess to reach the point it is now, it might take 20 years to completely correct it.

But it is NOT in the best interest of the Democratic Party to correct anything, It is in their best interest for the matter to stay as it is or get worse.

Their Political Power in Congress DEPENDS upon Illegal Aliens.

They will not let go of this advantage quietly, they will instead defame anyone who opposes them as Racists and Bigots.
