MY NEW HERO

I'm still upset because my other hero didn't win the last election...but....I've found a new one!

Sen. Frank Blas jr., is making big noise about making the US recognize that there are more Compact Impactees sucking the life force(known as money) outta GovGuam.........he's talking that it costs more than four hundred thousand dollars to accommodate these people who have come here for the better life.
The CI's go to GMH, get fixed then leave without any intention of paying the bill.....their children attend schools and get free meals because they are too poor to bring their own lunch.....of course, the number of them cause the government to have to hire more teachers, more class rooms, more books, more everything.....then there are the ones that like to go on drinking binges and either kill or get killed...they aren't known to be 'happy' drunks, preferring to fight after a few drinks.....I wonder how many CI's are at DOC today....Not sure what the GHURA housing rules are for the low income families, originally intended for those from Guam..........but I can assure you that they're quite a few of them living there.....
I don't begrudge them the services of the government but the compact impact agreement was between the US government and the Freely Associated states of Micronesia.........it's their agreement, therefore, their expense.
It would be awful but what would happen if we put these sick CI's on an ambulance and brought them to NRMC when they present themselves at GMH's ER?
It's not fair for Uncle Sam to complain about all the things we haven't one then look the other way because we've run out of money due to their agreement with neighboring island......
My opinion, of course and worth about two cents!

GRAFITTI NOT ON PRIORITY LIST FOR ONLY 12 POLICE OFFICERS?

I hope we have more than 12 police officers to care for 150,000 people. ar.....

On the grand scheme of things, the ugly grafitti painted on walls by thugs isn't as important as those who need real police service.....It takes forever to get an officer if someone's broken into your house and made off with your stuff that can be sold at weekend flea markets...you need them for crashes and the like......
I think that we don't have enough officers to babysit buildings...I do however, think that we have enough DUI drivers that can buy 5 gallons of paint and send away the ugly sites...If not the DUI's then send out an army of prisoners....
We really have to stop blaming the police department because there's grafitti on the walls.....
I also think that when we find that teens have done the 'decorating', that we should get his or her parents to pay for the damages and cover their child's work of art. I bet that tge first couple of times we see tan maria and tun jose painting over grafitti, the word will get around and maybe, just maybe, our parents will be more concerned about where their children are and what they're doing!

WILL ANYONE LEARN FROM THE LITTLE TWO YEAR OLD AND THE BULLDOZER THAT KILLED HIM?

It took long enough to arrest the people who allowed the tragedy.

It was reported on broadcast and print media that the parents and God-father of a little two year old boy that was killed because he was allowed to ride on a small bulldozer. While the machine was moving, the boy fell and hit his head and died because the adults thought it was okay for him to ride a dozer that some adults should be on, let alone a baby.
The parents were arrested, the father was booked and confined, as was the God-father.
I never understand parents who buy their child skate boards, not knowing that they use highways to skate on....then mourn the death of a son because he skated right onto route 16 where he was killed...
Unfortunately, my gut tells me that nothing will happen to the arrestees. They'll be outta jail and everything will be forgotten by this community until the next time a child is killed doing something he shouldn't have been doing. No matter, justice will present itself, the three feeling guilty for the rest of their lives.
There's a law against children riding in the back of pickup vehicles...but they're still doing it...and will continue to do until one of those pickups overturns and kills those in the back...
What a waste of a perfectly good life!

SCAM AT ITS BEST! BEWARE OF SIMILAR INVITATIONS

If it sounds too good to be true............it probably is......

The entire letter to Charo is cut and pasted...........
"

Good Day,

I am Roger Weston,staff of Bristol & West Private
Banking. I am contacting you concerning a deceased
customer and an investment he placed under our banks
management three years ago. I would respectfully
request that you keep the contents of this mail
confidential and respect the integrity of the
information you come by as a result of this mail.I am
making this contact with you based on the committee's
need for an individual/company who is willing to
assist me to stand as the next of kin to my deceased
client.

Being the deceased financial consultant before the
untimely and sudden death and since i am the only one
who has the knowledge where these funds (60million
british pounds sterling) was moved to when the
deceased demanded it be moved from our office Bristol
& West to a security company,i can move this deal
forward to it's successful end once we conclude to
work together.What I expect from you is trust and
commitment.There is a reward for this project and it
is a task well worth undertaking.According to
practice, the Security firm will by the end of this
financial year broadcast a request for statements of
claim to Bristol & West Private Bank, failing to
receive viable claims they will most probably revert
the deposit back to Bristol & West Private Bank. What
I propose now is that if you are the relative to my
client please let me know. I alone have the deposit
details and they will release the deposit to no one
unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the
existence of this deposit for as far as Bristol & West
Private Bank is concerned, the transaction with our
late customer concluded when I sent the funds to the
security firm, all outstanding interactions in
relation to the file are just customer services and
due process. The Security firm has no single idea of
what is the history or nature of the deposit. They are
simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to
any party that comes forward. This is the situation.
This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to
track this man¡¦s family; they have investigated for
months and have found no family. The investigation has
come to an end. My proposal; you share similar details
to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a
position to instruct the Securities firm to release
the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation.
Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share
the money with you in half. That is: I will simply
nominate you as the next of kin and have them release
the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I
would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to
me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me
and my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure
you that I could have the deposit released to you
within a few days.

I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have
here is for you to betray my confidence.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Roger Weston "

GUAM FAMILY AND FRIENDS GET THE CHANCE TO BID AN OLD FRIEND GODSPEED

Even in grief, the man's wife stands strong as family and friends bid her husband farewell.

One of the words I love is 'geopolitical'....politics worldwide, men and women meet to make changes to the world in which they live. I'm pretty sure our friend Ken Jones was in the business of being part of that geopolitical world, he was however a 'geo' businessman and 'geo' friend.
He was from North Carolina....he was a CB who came to fix a broken Guam after world war II...He fixed it in ways that went way beyond the tin and cement....he made a difference in his own way....one person at a time....he wasn't satisfied with just fixing Guam up, he fixed Tinian and Saipan as well and went as far away as Australia to make that difference.
Today, a grieving and greatful family was honored by all those that came to give their condolences as they said good-bye to a long time friend, Ken Jones who the Lord called Home at the end of October.
He may no longer on earth, but his kindness and generosity made heart prints and as long as one of us remain, he shall remain alive.
So, Dear friend, you shall not be forgotten.
Adios, for now and thank you for all that you did to leave this place a better place than you found it!

COMMENTS FROM A READER

Perhaps a warning? Cut and pasted.

"ALL,

I have a retired oral surgeon friend (AF) here in Guam. His daughter
Melanie is a missionary in India. Bud sends me a very recent communication
from her. I've attached it to this reply to Gunship Charlie, Jim Cannon and
including you ALL. I believe you'll find her observations quite interesting
and, as her father said, quite frightening. One day it will be a matter of
just who can you trust. All the baddies won't be men in masks. Some will
be women and kids.

Without further comment, or thoughts of which I have plenty, please read
what Melanie has to say about our new world.

What was it that doltish character of long ago used to say, "What? Me
Worry!" You bet your sweet bippy I'm worried. I believe that was Alfred
Neuman, or something like that.

FURTHER MORE:
"Subject: RE: A German Lady remembers and speaks

Wow..........Those are some powerful memories. I remember the speeches by
Hitler. Loud, eloquent, speeches with smooth continuity and promises of
heaven in Germany but only for the elite and the superior race....And now
this damn monkey is promising the same thing.

Please read those memories of this lady below and pray that the Christians
of this nation will come to life and defend what we're all about and why
this country was settled.....freedom and freedom of religion.
Jim Cannon


Murphy's law: If it can go wrong it will.
Cannon's corollary: If you try to fix it...It will only get worse"

"Howdy,

This elderly lady writes about the rise of Hitler,whose first act was to
confiscate all guns.

Take care.

Cheers - - - Charlie

If it weren't for the United States military,
there'd be NO United States of America.

AND MORE:

A German Lady remembers and speaks

by Lori Kalner

In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial
depression. Money was worth nothing.

In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression
in the 1930s, which we have read about in Thoene's Shiloh books.

In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to power by
promising "Change."

He blamed the "Zionists" around the world for all our problems.
He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused every problem
we had.

He promised when he was leader, the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished
The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth. So
Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote.

A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader
Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament
who did not go along with him.

Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would. The
teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs in
praise of Hitler.

This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement. It began with praise of
the Fuhrer's programs on the lips of innocent children.
Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the
schoolrooms and in the playyard.

Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as they walked home
from school.

My brother came home and told Papa what was happening at school.
The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was coming to our homeland
and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust.

I will never forget my father's face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best
propaganda of the Nazis was song on the lips of little children.

That evening before he said grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands
upon the heads of my brothers and me and prayed the Living Word upon us from
Jeremiah 1:4-5.

'Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying,
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to The Nations."

Soon the children's songs praising the Fuhrer were heard everywhere on the
streets and over the radio. "With our Fuhrer to lead us, we can do it! We
can change the world!"

Soon after that Papa, a pastor, was turned away from visiting elderly
parishioners in hospitals. The people he had come to bring comfort of God's
Word, were "no longer there."

Where had they vanished to while under nationalized health care? It became
an open secret.

The elderly and sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as "mercy
killing" became the policy.

Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were euthanized.

People whispered, "Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of misery.
They are no longer suffering.And, of course, their death is better for the
treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a
burden." And so murder was called mercy.

The government took over private business. Industry and health care were
nationalized." (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party)

The businesses of all Jews were seized. (Perhaps you remember our story in
Berlin on Krystalnacht in the book Munich Signature)

The world and God's word were turned upside down. Hitler promised the people
economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer's very ancient
Delusion leading to Destruction.

What began with the propaganda of children singing a catchy tune ended in
the deaths of millions of children.

The reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present
generation cannot imagine it. Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a
book or show in a black and white newsreel.

When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things, she wept and said she
could not bear to write them.

Perhaps one day she will, but I asked her, "who could bear to read our
suffering?" Yet with my last breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in
the name of the Lord .. unless your course of the church in America is
spiritually changed now, returning to the Lord, there are new horrors yet to
come.

I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American children raised in
song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who claims he is
the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says about
abortion and the "mercy killing" of tiny babies who are not wanted.

There are so few of us left to warn you.

I have heard that there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million
Evangelical Christians.

Where are your voices?
Where is your outrage?
Where is passion and your vote?

Do you vote based on an abortionist's empty promises and economics? Or do
you vote according to the Bible?

Thus says the Lord about every living child still in the womb.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you."

I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my youth.
I see them again now. Christians! Unless you stand up now, you will lose
your freedom of religion.

In America priests and preachers have already lost their freedom to speak
openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political candidates.

They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to the
precepts of scripture! American law forbids this freedom of speech to
conservative pastors or they will lose their "tax exempt" status.

And yet I have heard the words of Obama's pastor Damning America!
I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small
towns because you "Cling to your religion."

But I am a woman whose name is unknown. My life is recorded as a work of
fiction. I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the
pages of a book. (Though the Zion Covenant books are mocked and condemned
by the Left in America.)

I am an old woman and will soon go to be with my Lord. I have no fear for
myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble.

I tremble at the hymns to a political leaders which your children will sing
at school. (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is
against the law in public school!)

Your vote must put a stop to what will come upon America if Barrack Obama is
elected. I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your
children and your grandchildren. Do not be deceived.

The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up!

"Do not say, 'I am only a youth,' for to all whom I send you, you shall go,
and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them for I
am with you, declares the Lord!"

I am in Prayer for you, and for the Church!

Spoken to you in the authority of Jesus the Christ,
the Name Above All Names,

Lori Kalner

DOES THIS KID SOUND WHINY? HE'S GOT A LOT HANGING ON UOG'S NOT GETTING ITS 28M-PART TWO

We're always complaining about the teenagers and how much trouble they cause. Few realize that there are really a few of these teens that actually want to stay home(Guam) and make something of themselves and doing something for the island. In my eyes, I see strangth in their determination to make something of thier lives......and UOG is good enough to stay for.

Raymond D. Gibson asked why the senators are shortchanging his school. He writes about an interview with a senator who said that it's the legislature that oversees the budget, that he's working on a budget for better education for all grades.
Gibson doesn't seem to understand why GPSS gets what they want but the highest learning center(UOG) is shortchanged.
Gibson reports that the short change will result in a limited to no enrollmwnt for both summer and winter intersessions which students use to catch up or grab units to graduate early. He reports that the shortage will phase out or consolidating majors and that every fall, there will be a surcharge on the tuition. How will help a student that's barely hanging on because he/she doesn't have the extra funds, as well, Gibson reports(PDN) that the short changing will discontinue academic programs and that the school will award fewer scholarships.
The young Variety and work awhile with KUAM during his teen years finishes his comment that education is important, especially when people are studying to better their lives and their communities. He says that UOG is the only university able to cater to the needs of students wishing to pursue their academic goals to build and raise living standards in their island nations. "
"Times are tough and toughers times lie ahead but hopes that there's a light at the end of this tunnel."

I should have started the thread with the thoughts and opinions of others that wrote to PDN about the short changing of UOG's budget, but I didn't save the papers but you can be sure that not a one of them(letters to the editor) came from a 'brat' or was whiny.
Mr. Gibson seems to only want to finish his education and go out there to find a job. Short changing the school would affect his scholarships and or the consolidating his majors.
Perhaps if we paid more attention to those attending UOG, we'd have smarter people who could run and take over various parts of the government as well as the Legislature.

If the legislature doesn't give uog it's 28M, then they are part of the fault....the other part falling upon the professor that says students and or staff are whiny and brats!
