Quotes of the day

Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy says he is opposed to releasing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners.

In a statement Monday, he said that disclosing the information, which is public under state law, would endanger residents with permits and their neighbors and that it would be irresponsible to make the gun information available to people with criminal intentions.

Levy was responding to a Freedom of Information Law request from The Journal News/LoHud.com.

***

“The Affiliated Police Association is putting The Journal News on notice that we will hold them accountable for any incident where any of our members are involved in an incident where a person, criminal or ex-con presents themselves at the residence of one of our members as a result of their name being made public by The Journal News,” Robert Buckley, vice president of the organization, said in the release.

Richard Well, president of the Police Conference of New York, will ask that all county clerks deny requests for such records, which he said is allowable if it would endanger the life and safety of any person, the release said.

“We also urge The Journal News to cease its quest to obtain and publish this information,” Well said in the release. “It serves no legitimate purpose and could easily lead to more tragedy.”

***

During the public comments portion of Tuesday’s Orangetown Town Council meeting, Richard Molloy of Pearl River asked the board to condemn The Journal News for publishing a map of legally licensed pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties last month…

Councilman Denis Troy said he thought the map was irresponsible, which Councilman Thomas Diviny agreed with. The board voted to pass the resolution 4-0 with Stewart abstaining. He said he wanted to look more into possible repercussions from publishing the map before making a decision on it…

“The thing that got me when I first looked at it was I looked at a street and I said, ‘Oh my god, that guy’s dead.’ Twenty-five percent of that information, which is public information, is incorrect on that website. So if you think that somebody lives in a house, they don’t necessarily live in that house anymore,” Nulty said.

“These are law-abiding citizens. I think The Journal News went overboard on this, certainly.”

***

As an example, he said the list included most of the correction officers at the Rockland County Jail in New City. Because their names and home addresses were listed, and they must wear name tags while on duty, the inmates now know exactly where each guard lives, and they have been harassing and threatening those guards ever since the list appeared.

The inmates also know when the guards work, meaning they know when their families at home are alone and unprotected, and thus most subject to home invasions, kidnapping and assault. The inmates have been threatening the guards with this information since The Journal-News published the list, Nulty said, telling the guards that they have friends and family on the outside who can easily visit their homes when the guards are at work.

The chief went on to say that hundreds of people on the published list work undercover, and are not supposed to have their names and addresses made public. They include not only local village and town police here in Rockland who are detectives and on various undercover task forces such as narcotics, intelligence and organized crime, but county detectives in the Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney’s office, in addition to hundreds or even thousands of New York City police officers who live here.

Additionally, Nulty said the northern suburbs of Rockland and Westchester Counties are home to many federal undercover officers, whose identities are also supposed to be confidential, for their own safety and to safeguard their investigations.

***

[New York City Council Speaker Christine] Quinn said the publication of the list was not appropriate.

“I think the rules for getting a gun need to be tougher, but if you meet the rules, and you get a license in the legal way, and you have that license, I don’t think that should be printed in a newspaper,” she said.

Quinn added that anyone who has met the rules and received a license, “you have not done anything wrong. You’ve met the legal standard.”

***

The problem here is threefold:

Making this list public put gun owners in danger. There are former judges on that list—even reportedly a woman who was the victim of stalking. There are lunatics on both sides of the aisle, and we have already seen proof of that. There have been threats to the paper and it’s personnel, even their families—so much so they had to hire security to protect them. And there are gun owners who have been contacted by fanatical gun opponents who have threatened their lives as well. (The gun opponents wouldn’t be using a gun, I assume?)

What good does this do? Or will it do? The friends and neighbors in Newtown, Conn. knew that the shooter’s mother was a gun collector who had guns in her home. That did not prevent the massacre; nor will listing these people’s names and addresses prevent any potential violent act by one of those gun owners or anyone in those homes in those two counties.

It’s a slippery slope. What’s next? Lists of those who are on welfare? Lists of those who subscribe to pornographic magazines? You get the point. We as Americans are entitled to some level of privacy—gun owners included.

***

“The whole battle over the Second Amendment has little to do with crime or any of these things” Mr. Keene said. “It has to do with culture and the view that different people have about what kind of a country this ought to be.”…

“It wasn’t until the culture wars of the late 1960′s, 70′s and 80′s that, all of a sudden, the Second Amendment became anathema to liberals who viewed it, really I think culturally, as a as symbol of an America they didn’t like, an America in which people took responsibility for themselves and for the protection of their families, an America which didn’t look to the state for the answer to all of its problems,” said Mr. Keene. “And the media, the elite media, if anything, represents that view more than almost any segment of our society.”…

“What happened there in New York with the posting of the legitimate, licensed pistol owners in Rockland County and others has had tremendously terrible consequences. As you know, now prison guards had their home addresses listed by that newspaper and are now under threat from prisoners and their allies outside,” Mr. Keene said. “This was an incredibly irresponsible thing that was an attempt by this elite to demonize people who own firearms legitimately.”

***

Would you publish a database of people who have filed for bankruptcy? People who have been foreclosed? People who have tax liens? Or would you say this information, while public, has no news value; tells a reader nothing he needs to know and does so at a price of discomfiting some law-abiding citizen, putting their business in the street?…

[I]f one consequence is that some New York state gun owners feel exposed, the larger consequence for all of us is a further chipping away of private spaces, a further compromise of the increasingly quaint idea that one has a right to live peacefully and an expectation to not be bothered in so doing.

This is not about freedom of the press or freedom to own guns. It is, rather, about the freedom to be left alone, and whether that’s still sustainable or whether henceforth we must all live exposed. The technology being what it is, it’s worth remembering that the answer to that question, whatever it may be, will be shaped both by journalists and by those who are not.

***


***

“Now the firestorm began when the Journal News identified gun owners in a pedophile-like interactive map,” Pirro said during the opening of her Saturday night show. “The battered woman hiding from her abuser whose address has been protected by the courts. The police officer whose family is now in jeopardy. The witness who testified against the bad guy who is in jail and, for years, has been stewing about that witness.”

It is a restaurant where they buy food to eat
It is a good place to listen to the music
People flock here to get down to the rock music

Rock and Roll McDonalds
Rock and Roll McDonalds
Rock and Roll McDonalds
Rock and Roll McDonalds

McDonalds will make you fat
They serve Big Macs

“Roll Away the Stone”

Anti-Control on January 13, 2013 at 2:45 AM

There is a lad named Sparky
He gets up to all kinds of malarkey
He’s a bit of a flirt
Will take off his shirt
Swims naked in the lake
And loves Camel Meal Tea
With two humps!

Then there is Schad
Also a bit of a lad
He is the magistrate
So he keeps us all straight
No breaking the rules
As his name implies, he garners
Great pleasure at others ‘demise’.

Our Moon Goddess is simply divine
She helps keep us sane in this time
Her heart overflows
Her music doth flow
She is witty and wise
Writes wonderful prose
Our Jackie is a remarkable woman!

Axe is a whole ‘nother story
A gentleman, tho a tad hoary
Not in age, no, not at all
But in wisdom on whom it befalls
He’s quite magical you see
And in a second he may flee
With a *poof* he gone like a flash!

RWM is a warrior of words
She relishes her chance to cross swords
With a few of the resident trolls
Who poke around like moles
They don’t know what hit them
She knocks them about with a rhythm
Her words they cannot dispute!

MarshFox is Keeper of the Flame
He guards us well, he’s not tame
His armour of burnished gold
Lends a warm light in the cold
When firelit brightly
Which he tends to nightly
Our Warrior Knight to be sure.

KCB Ken is quite shy
But he is quick to let fly
With wit and succor and more
For those who are troubled, be sure
His words are kind and tender
His only to be a defender
Of souls troubled with strife.

Bmore is a master craftsman
Wondrous things this man can
Make with throwaway stuff
But it’s not enough
He is also learned and wise
Without any visible vise
He can bring such joy and pleasure.

Arnold keeps us all down to earth
His is one of humor and mirth
He doesn’t like bossy women
That’s a natural given
He is sweet and kind and dear
One needs to have him near
He’s our anchor here in the Glade.

KOOLAID2 has a serious side
That he does not hide!
He teases with Sparky
About his malarkey…
He is for that the law be upheld
He won’t sell out for gold
K2 is profound that I know!

Anti-Control has a dramatis personae
Surprise! Not yet a subpoena
He makes us think twice
Do we stay on topic and be nice?
His heart aches for a fish
Apparently she’s quite the dish
Methinks he’s really quite funny!

Mike_CA is a somewhat of a Joker
He likes to jab at folk with a poker
Not in any literal sense…
He just has this bent
For frivolity and laughter
It’s what he is after
We laugh at his antics for sure!

Scrumpy is a delightful sprite
Who will at times run from a ‘fight’
Her poems uplift I am sure
Those words can be a cure.
She tends to be a little niave…
But has that certain ‘qui vive’
Little passes by her un-noticed…

EG does not yet play in the Glade
He prefers to stay out of the shade.
Outspoken he is at times
Never one to belie his ‘rhyme’
Sincere is he thats for sure
His heart and soul are pure
One day he may join us in fun!

Cozmo, he is somewhat of a puzzle
He has a dear friend, he’d like to muzzle
It’s done all in good fun
Somewhere there is a pun!
Bunny suits are his weakspot
I gave it a shot!
Now I am done…

Our dear friend ALT, works so hard
She sometimes seems weird for a lark!
She now has a gun we are told
My my this Lady is bold!
Shoot true and shoot straight
To learn is never too late!
Keep Texas the land of the free!

AZfederalist is our man about God
All it takes is a wink and a nod
He sets the trolls straight
Quoting scripture out the gate!
Better watch out
And don’t you dare pout!
Az knows his stuff hereabouts!!

SW lives in the Wilderness
Of Mirrors no less!
He speaks the truth
He has much couth!
His passion knows no bounds
He is like a hound
Nose to the ground a huntin’

Dr. ZhivBlago makes no bones
About the truth, to be known.
Defender of the Constitution
Speaks hushed tones of ReVoLuTiOn!
The good Dr cures what ails us
By exposing the ruse
A goodly Sherriff of HA!

Bishop reigns supreme
Being first is his ‘meme’
Most of us defer to him
Not to do so would be a sin!
Full of vim and vigor
His place is ‘de rigeur’
All hail the Bish!

Kingsjester is no ones fool
His take is quite quite cool.
He knows thereof the plot
But Obama is what we got.
His words provide succor
With a touch of rancor.
Somthing we take not for granted!

PercyB is a Wordsmith
His poems are herewith
The best around.
He is unbound.
I wish he’d write more often
Ne’er to be forgotten.
Slay them with your pithy way!

CheshireCat keeps us grinning
This style is winning!
Likened to a Wonderland
The prose goes hand in hand
With Alice and the rest
It is the best!
Fits well within the Glade’n.

Canopfor stands tall in the frozen north
All linkys this man durst quoth!
He guards the rear
Not out of fear.
He’s resolute to defend
Right until the end
Everything America stands for!

22044 comes loaded for Bear
Seeking and finding with care
All things that make sense.
Tho sometimes takes license
To proclaim ideas have legs
Then speechless no less,
Searches for some commonsense.

Predator steals in on silent wings
His one liners have such a ‘zing’!
Always quick witted
He is so gifted.
So charming and delightful
His words tho can be frightful!
He searches out foes to defeat.

For those I have missed
Do not feel dissed.
Your time will come for sure
So please quietly endure.
I have much more to do!
So don’t feel ‘blue’.
My words, in time, shall flow like water!!

President Obama plans to push Congress on ambitious immigration overhaul, senior officials say – @nytimes

11 mins ago from http://www.denverpost.com by editor
=================================================

Posted: 01/13/2013 12:01:00 AM MST

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, senior administration officials and lawmakers said last week.

Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces — separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners — that might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept.(More…)

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, senior administration officials and lawmakers said last week.

Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces — separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners — that might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept.(More…)

Of course the biggest con here is how many illegals are there really?
Many say 12-20 million.Truth is few know and even fewer have done any research to figure out just how many are here.

The above link to the “Social Contract” by James T. Walsh a brilliant immigration scholar and former govt. immigration lawyer.He asserts that the number is more like 36 million with 2 million visa overstays. Maybe a few went back home due to theobamba economy so maybe its down to only 30 million. Still a long way from the acknowledged 8-12 or 12-20 million figures commonly used.
Even worse is the multiplier effect from anchor babies. First an illegal(not one of the rocket scientists either, average intelligence of border crossers from mexico are fourth grade) comes to the us when she is 8 and 9/10 months pregnant, has here anchor baby here and who knows how many else are on the dole in no time at all.
Its all one more scary scenario about how we can lose a country without even trying in less than eight years.

[New York City Council Speaker Christine] Quinn said the publication of the list was not appropriate.

“I think the rules for getting a gun need to be tougher, but if you meet the rules, and you get a license in the legal way, and you have that license, I don’t think that should be printed in a newspaper,” she said.

Dear Ms. Quinn, what part of the right shall not be infringed upon don’t you understand.
This fiasco with the Journal publishing names of legal gun owners is another reason we’re against any national data base registration. It would create the same problems on a country wide scale.

The Obama Administration is attacking traditional America on all fronts. Did you hear about the National Cathedral? My take.
