06/25/07. In 2006, Americans donated $265 Billion dollars to Charities. More than any other year, including New Orleans natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina. Most of the money went to Religious Organizations. So lets say Religious Organizations gets $200 billion dollars out of the $265 billion dollars. If 10% were charged in taxes to Religious Organizations, $20 billion dollars could have been collected. These Religous Organizations purchase property, real and personal. They compete with builders and sell real real for a profit. Religious Organizations get involved in political agendas. The Catholic Church has been using these donated money to hire lawyers defending their Priests against child molestation charges. So you see, the Church isn't really paying for their crimes against children. The Catholic Church is lobbying politicians to ban Juries from hearing and sentencing Child Molester Priests, lobbying for a panel to Hear and to Sentence and impose fines regarding these thousands of Child Molestation Cases. No courts but a panel pcked by politicians that the Church help elect. This is abuse of power and is against the idea of Church and State being seperate. Religious Organizations compete with business that have to pay taxes. Religious Organizations pay ZERO TAX! RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS should pay taxes on any money donated over $1 Million dollars. This would stop the abuse from child molestation to competing with regular business. God doesn't buy property than sells it or flips it for a profit. Think about it. Jim Liceaga

How about the Oslo Agreement? The Three State Solution will be between Gaza Strip, West Bank and Israel. Yes, a Three State Solution. Great way to divide and conquer. Let's review, Israel's policy of no return for any Palestinians, then spliting Palestinian lands, (Gaza Strip and West Bank), then using sanctions against the Palestinians numerous times, then bulldozing Palestinian Homes, allowing Jews (settlers) to occupy Palestinian lands, diverting the Jordan River to water Israeli farms (they took the high ground for many reasons other than farming), rigging democratic elections, abuse of police powers, controled trade, spliting Jerusalem, and building a Wall/Fence to control Palestinians. Currently the Gaza Strip is Hamas controled and the West Bank is Fatah controled. Palestinian President Abbas is a Fatah party member. Palestinians who want to leave the Gaza Strip for safety to the West Bank (Fatah Party Members and their familis) are being turned around by Israeli soldiers shooting real bullets over Palestinian refugee heads. Forcing them to go back where the violence is continuing against Fatah members.

Poland is upset that a Gas pipeline from Russia to Germany will use the Baltic Sea bypassing Poland. The Polish Government wants Russia to use their country to cross over the new Gas pipeline across their land instead of the Baltic Sea. This would give Poland political leverage. Russia and Germany have many other deals that bind all three nations. For example, trade, farming, banking, and security. Remember, Poland is a Strong allie to the U.S.A.. That most likely the underline issue with both Germany nand Russia. Russia could be upset that Poland is with the Czech Republic and the U.S.A. re. Missile Defense System.

Israel has built a wall around the Palestinians Muslims and Christians to secure Israeli settlers that came from Russia and Eastern Europe. A plan to isolate the Palestinian people from each other is working foe Israel. Unfortunately the Israeli government can't find peace with it's distant cousins, the Palestinians.

The Italian government wants the U.S. to halt and to get out of Italy. They were calling President Bush an International Killer. The Pope did not mention this in puplic. Italy should be reminded that the United States in World War II shed American blood in Italy to free them from their facist leader. Italy was part of that AXIS of EVIL during WWII. They hooked up with Hitler to dominate the World. Lessons not learned by the Romans. Even after we freed them from Hitler, President Franlkin Roosevelt had to make special deals and get permission with the Mafia bosses controling the sea ports/docks in Italy for our WWII Navy carrying soldiers and supplies to dock. The Italians even stole supplies that the American soldiers needed in fighting the Germans in Europe. I wonder how many WWII American soldiers died for not having the supplies needed because it was stolen on the docks of Italy and sold on the black market. Arrogant and ungrateful.

Hilton was crying and shouted out for her mommy. She also screamed out that, 'THIS IS NOT FAIR." Her parents we crying. Lots of drama and the defendent has caused alot of disruption and money in this silly move she and her attorney did. The tax payers of Los Angeles should sue her for disrupting the legal system in Los Angeles. Tax Payers were chanting today, "Money Talks and Paris Walks." There are 22,000 inmates in the Los Angeles jail at any given time. By the way, she will most likely appeal this sentence. She might get out for good behavior. It's a joke! Her jail is away from the general public. Isolated for her protection, protecting her RCH ANGLO ACCCCC at tax payer expense. She has been offered a million dollars for her jail diary.

06/08/07. Israel celebrates 40 years of Israeli Supremacy in the Middle East. Actually, Israel celebrated in May because they recognize the Jewish calendar which is probably more accurate. That calendar refects the old Egyptian calendars of the ancient past. Israel's victorious Six Day War with three Arab Armies, Egypt, Jordan and Sierria occured on June 7th, 1967. Only Six days for victory and 40 years of non-peace in the region. Millions of Palestinian Refugees all over the middle east. Isreal has said they will never be allowed to return. A Two Headed government that leads the Palestinians in Palestine or Israel, Hamas and Fatah. Treaties and deals broken from all sides. The Jordan River controled by Israeli farmers. About a million Jewish settlers, from Europe, occupying Palestinian lands declared illegal by the United Nations. Israel must do better. Walls or Fences erected like WWII concentration camps. No way for peace, no talk for peace, no desire for peace. United States must find a way for Palestinians to seek peace with the Israelis and Israel must recognize the need for peace. Not just a slogan for world political gain but as neighbors Israel must guarantee peace. All parties must seek peace for the regions sake. For the worlds sake. That means Hamas should talk with all Israeli political parties. Israel should let Paletinians trade freely. Water should be distributed fairly. I wonder what our 33rd President Harry S. Truman would say today if he were alive. In 1948 one vote in the United Nations secured the existance for Israel to exist. That vote was casted by the United States of America. I do not believe our 32nd President Franklin D. Roosevelt if alive in 1948 would have allowed that vote to be casted in favor of an Israeli Nation. He had a great relationship with Saudi Arabia. They assisted the United States to defeat facism in Africa by letting us build and use military air bases in Saudi Arabia, fueling our planes and ships, alowing access to petrol for our use in Africa and parts of Europe in fighting the Germans and Italians during WWII. Well maybe in the next 40 years a solution for neighborly peace will gain prudence. The real question is if we will survive that long without a major breach of our security. Don't blame an allie nation in North America about security issues on the border. Lets examine our allie in the Middle East that causes friction with its neighbors then ask us to secure their land by giving them weapons and allowing them to develop weapons to make war on their neighbors. By the way United States, you better look at your neighbor to the south. Maybe you should declare war on them like we declare war on our neighbors. Maybe United States should build a wall or fence like we have to do. That kind of jestures brings us closer you see. This world is upside down, and thats just fine for the puppet masters of the world. Got you! See we were right because we spun it that way dummy. And no, I'm not an Anti Semite, just a concerned citizen of the world and proud Hispanic American. About 250,000 to 500,000 latinos fought in WWII to free the Jews/Europeans from fascist Europe and that crazy bastard, Hitler. Many Latinos never came home and the Latinos who did come home from WWII were discriminated by Anglo Americans. Remember, Spanish is an American Language. We speak an American Language.

06/15/07. Congestion Tax. Chicago's Alderman Burke wants to charge a new tax for any one driving into Downtown Chicago. Stokholm and London have this Tax in their cities. Both are socialist type governments. They charge about $16 dollars to their residents to visit their Downtown. New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced the same tax in the city that never sleeps. A professor from Northwestern University, Joe Schofer has been studying this use of controlling congestion /transportation in Urban settings. He is pleased that Alderman Burke is trying to implement the new tax. Vans equiped with cameras linked to a highly sensitive computer will be scanning all license plates on vehicles entering Downtown Chicago. All information about the owner and the vehicle will be assessed, then Chicago automaticly bills you. You will have to pay this tax within 24 hours. The fine goes up by $2 dollars every day the tax isn't paid. Eventually you are charged $200 if you don't pay within a month. This could change, it hasn't been worked out yet. Most likely, the tax will start out as a small tax, maybe $3 for all of us to get used to without complaining, then it will go up to about $20 dollars per Downtown visit. $16 dollars is the PRICE POINT Professor Joe Schofer reported to Alderman Burke. Price Point represents the money consumers are willing to pay for a given service or item. See folks, it's all figured out. It just has to be implemented. By the way, Alderman Burke's wife is a Illinois Supreme Court Justice. He also has a law firm that represents City Workers that sue the City of Chicago when they are injured. The question should be asked if Alderman Burke, any relative, friend, or partner will be involved with any business related to this new tax he is trying to pass on to Chicagoans and all Americans. Alderman Burke was a good friend and associate of former Alderman Verdolyak. Get ready to open up your wallets again people. More to come, stay tune.

06/14/07. In Palestine, the Gaza Strip and West Bank leaders have called for a cease fire. Palestinian President Abbas will hold crisis talks re. the Unity Government shared by the Fatah and Hamas parties. U.S.A and Israel does not recognize the elected officials of the Hamas party members. As matter of fact, Israel targets Hamas members for assasanation and incarceration. Israel owes the Palestinians approx. $660 million dollars. This money belongs to the Palestinian government. The money is toll taxes paid by Palestinians and was legislated to be collected by Israeli government and then allocated back to the Palestinian elected government. Israel has been playing and refusing to give the money to Palestinian government. Even the United States of America has told Israel to release the Palestiian money to Palestinian government. This would pay security, police, teachers, etc. to Palestinians. Israel's refusal to give the money to Palestinians has caused unnecessary stress in Palestine. Israel is also blocking trade and banking relationships the Palestinian government needs to function with day to day normal situations. From Health care, to Education, to Security to Food, the Palestinians have been suffering for over a year. The EU might send in peace keepers and try to send more aid. Palestinian refugees are crossing to other border Muslim nations because of the fighting. Israel is concerned now that the situation is getting out of hand and that Palestinian refugees might flood into Israel. Israel didn't expect this. More to come, stay tune.

There are elected officials that are taking advantage of the immigration problem with our southern border, they feel Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez is vulnerable with the American people because of his Mexican Heritage. You have to really think deep into the mind of the Majority that make up the United States. Past U.S. Attorney Generals have done far worst things than this Attorney General and they were not asked to leave office. Democrats hate President Bush for fighting a War and Democrats/Republicans legislators hate the President for trying to work out a comprehensive bill on fair immigration reform. So, they take it out on Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, a great fighter and leader against terrorism in our country. He has made a difference in fighting terrorism in our country. Remember 9/11.

About 85,000 Palestinian refugees left the camp for their safety in the last few weeks. The militants are backed by al-Qaeda. The operation to rid of the militants started May 20th, 2007 when they robbed a bank to buy weapons. The fighting currently is compared to the civil war in 1990. Currently about 30 Lebanese soldiers, 50 militants, and one to 20 civilians have been killed. The Lebanese Army ran out of ammunition and had to go to other Arab nations to get what they needed. The Prime Minister of Lebanon Fouad Siniora said he refuses to surrender to the terrorist or the militants. He accused the militants of using Palestinian refugees as a prop to distabilize the Lebanese government. Last week the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah warned the Lebanese government by saying if the Lebanese Army eters the camp, it would be crossing the line and that Palestinian civilians need to be protected. He continued to blast the militants saying that the group Fatah al-Islam is using the Palestinian refugees as shields, using aggressive tactics against the Lebanese people. Hezbollah is a Shiite faction backed by Iran and views extremist Sunni groups such as a-Qaeda and Fatah al-Islam as enimies. There is an agreement that the Lebanese Army not to enter the Palestinian camp that was signed in 1969. The Lebanese government does not allow terrorist to hide in the camp that is in the agreement. Israel continues not to allow the Palestinian Refugees back into their lands that Israel controls. Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria are currently housing Palestinian refugees.

They were working with a Simple Majority vote to get this General Assembly session to rap funding projects up. But since the Democrats couldn't work with each other in moving the state forward, lack of the Governor's leadership, missing the deadline for a balanced budget, the Republicans have a chance to imput their priorities into the budget and to reduce some of the spending the Democrats were proposing. Instead of a simple majority needed to pass legislation, a 3/5th Vote is now needed to pass the state budget. See checks and balances do work. More to come, Stay Tuned!

The Pope has endorsed recently the creation of a special panel in the United States that would replace the courts in deciding child molestation cases against his Priests. Similar panels have been agreed to in other nations heavily populated with Catholics. Child Molestation cases are world wide and that threatens the treasury of the Church in Rome. Billions of dollers would have to be paid out if the Catholic Church doesn't try to control the outcomes of the Child sex abuse cases.

Can you imagine retiring with 80% of your salary, sitting at home while the rest of working Chicagoans are paying for 80% of your past salary. No wonder fares, fees, and property taxes are increasing. City Union shops do not have the tax payer in mind when they negotiate with the city Alderman or Mayor Daley. The Mayor and his City Council for years has been selling the city and its assets away to make special deals with these City Worker Unions.
