Should we have a speical court system for terroists?

19 Jul

What happens in a shooting, especially those shootings where there are injuries and death?  We investigate and determine who the perpetrator becomes to be, then we allow them all the luxuries our criminal justice center allows.  We then put them on trial to give them an opportunity to plea bargain.  We then spend hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars keeping them incarcerated in one of our institutions.

In these cases they are treated like any person that normally tries to observe the laws of our nation.  The problem with this attitude is that the aforementioned have no consideration of any law or morality rule by which we live.

Many of the crimes that case injury and/or death are also very indiscriminately executed.  People targeted because they support a church, believe, or just because they are in the wrong place at the right time.  This type of crime has no right to be treated as normal.  It is not normal.  Drive by shootings are not normal.  Assassinations are not normal.  Kidnapping is not normal.  Bankers that take or misdirect other people’s money is not normal.  Threatening and/or intimidating people to get something you want is not normal.  All these and other crimes that ultimately effects the public at large or the government of the public are acts are terrorist acts.  These perpetrators should be put in a different category that takes them out of our normal court system.

People get mad at other people and kill or injure each other because we are human; reacting to various situations.  This would be a person that normally goes about the business of living a normal life.  The aforementioned perpetrators are people that have built their lives around the premise that they are not going to follow the rules of society that the normal public figures choose to live by.  There is a mark difference in the person hooked on drugs and the people that sell drugs with the idea that someone is going to sell them if there are buyers out there.  Why shouldn’t it be me?  The stock broker that sells something to an uninformed buyer because he gets a special commission at the expense of the buyer is taking advantage of the public.

Think of the hundreds of bankers that designed the derivative fraud at the public’s expense.  The mafia never costed the public as much money or heart ache as did these bankers and insurance executives, yet none have gone to jail or even been charged.  Our Congressmen and women are millionaires to a very high degree.  Go on http://ballotpedia.org/Net_worth_of_United_States_Senators_and_Representatives#Congressional_freshmen and see for yourself.  Did all these men and women come to congress rich?  Do they really understand the problems we have, and are they terrorizing the public by keeping the common man down and subservient to the powerful?

Where should we draw the line and exactly what shouldw do?  I don’t have a clue, but no one is addressing the problem.  In the campaign it will never be mentioned.

Answer to, Do I trust Iran

15 Jul

I took some flack over my last post concerning the Iran agreement.  That is perfectly okay.  I was told that I did not know these people and was called naïve by someone who had lived there.  I don’t have a lot of experience, but I have interacted with people form the Middle East for 30 years.  I know that when they say yes that they may be saying ‘this is a good concept’, ‘I heard you say this’, or ‘yes I might consider this point’.  I understand all these ideas, but I do know that if you ignore a situation with the idea that it will eventually fix itself, this is naïve and stupid.

Without this agreement Russia and China would probably pull out of the agreement and use Iran to help them to their own end.  The UN has spoken.  Any nation can’t just go forward in making bombs and supplying armament to rough nations.  There has to be some sanity in this world.

Lindsey Gram said yesterday that this is the worst agreement in the history of the United States.  Others have said stupid things by making judgements about serious talks and documents of which they were not a part.  Just think about Iran doing what they want to do while hiding behind Russia and China.  This type of thinking is the reason we are in the mess we are in today.

Supposedly we have sent the best and the brightest to our universities and educated them to run our political system.  They are supposed to be loyal to ‘We the People’, but instead they are first loyal to themselves and then to the power with which they subscribe.  With the exception of a very few the self-greed and that power rules this world.  The degree of hopelessness and helplessness in these United States is not based on the amount of money one has in their pocket.  The hopelessness and helplessness is based on the fear of the populous knowing there are problems out there with no one interested in solving.

When I speak I am always speaking from the standpoint of what I believe to be Christian beliefs and the fact that God guided our forefathers to create the basis of a Christian society that accepts and promotes, through the Constitution, choice to the populous as to how to worship Him.  The ,Him, I am referring to is Jesus the Christ who lived prophesied to the point of giving his life for our sins, while never raising his hand to anyone that didn’t follow Him.  Now we have made an agreement with the followers of Mohammed.  This two was a man who claimed to have had a vision that resulted in him and his followers to take a city by force about fourteen hundred years ago.  He also claimed to have ascended into heaven with instructions totally different than that of Jesus the Christ.  His followers say death to the Jews and Christians.  If you are not with them, you must be against them.

None of this is of God.  I used to think that Mohammad probably had a vision, but it was to unite the children of Abraham.  Now I think he must have been dealing with the devil and has led billions of people astray.  I they really would like to follow the prophets they should simply read what they say.  Certainly in Isaiah 53 he was not describing the death and resurrection of Mohammad.

The aforementioned comment was aimed at me to ask if I trust Iran.  Of course I do not.  However if we can somehow control the villains until Christ comes so we may be able to save all those souls, let’s do it.

We cannot solve today’s problems with archaic thinking.  We must identify the problems presented to us and then face them as they are and not what we want them to be.

Now we have a deal

14 Jul

The opponents of the Iran agreement said that if we didn’t bomb Iran or some other drastic measure, they would have the bomb perfected by now.  Now since we have an agreement that possibly allows inspection and some degree of control, the opponents, mostly Republicans, have stated they will not confirm it.

The Republicans and their supporters are determined to spend whatever prosperity we have on war upon which they profit.  This is just one more nail that holds up the banner that says reform congress.,

Are we body or soul?

11 Jul

A lot has been discussed about should we be rich, poor, black, yellow, red, white, male, female.  All these things would matter if we were going to live here on earth for a period of time then simply disappear.  However this is not the case.  Our God created us to follow his word then join him in eternity.  Our soul may have all the various traits of male, female and colors, but I doubt it.  Our Lord was specific about how you live and relate to each other which is part of following His direction of how to live.

The ‘how’ we live is more important than what we live as.  If we do not chose to live as a man or a woman that is okay with God, but to turn to the same sex for sexual gratification is not okay.  Paul seemed not to be attracted to the opposite sex, but he probably choose that so he could spend all his time glorifying God.

The ethnic issue is something I have never understood.  I grew up watching white people drink form one water fountain and blacks from another.  It didn’t make sense to me then and even less sense now that we should look down on either group.  In my opinion the blacks are just as bad as or worse than the whites when prejudice is concerned.  The only difference is power.  The whites seem to have more power in the normal world, but the blacks have more power in the world they created.

If a group of people within a larger society set up a community inside that the larger society with different rules or guidelines the smaller group has then separated themselves from the larger society.  This is the case with black communities that no longer feel they have to obey the accepted community laws and rules of the government.  I have heard of communities of other ethnic groups such as Chinese, Spanish communities, and others that set their own rules and answer to no one but themselves unless they happen to be caught in the government law enforcement agency.

We live in a society controlled by laws that assumes the general population would like to live in a law abiding community.  Our laws are set to be controlled by a small group of government agencies that simply guide us when we falter.  The most flagrant violation was the Cosa Nostra.  When we review the history of this organization we can clearly see how ignoring this type of power can hurt us deeply.

What do we do? We change the way we do business.  We have to identify a group that does not want abide by the rules set up by the majority then set up a set of rules that treat them differently.  We have a faction of our far right that seems to understand the problem, but are trying to fight in the wrong way.  Internationally we are seeing a far right group of the Muslim religion that does not even claim to part of any country that wants to set rules for all people or kill them.

We must recognize that some people feel they should live outside the rules of the larger government in which they live and when they cross the lines set out by that government, they should be handled not as part of the government, but as enemies of that government.

I can must more easily deal with an illegal alien that has jumped our fence in order to make a better living for his family, that to deal with a US citizen that has declared that he is no longer allegiant to the laws of the United States.  That person is now my enemy.

I am attempting to expand my reader base and get more people involved in bring this country to a place I believe God intended.

As you read please remember that I am a born again Christian who believes the bible is accurate but by on means complete.

Next I am an independent that believes the main parties and their sub-parties do not have any ambition to help the common people they represent.

To get a better idea of my beliefs and thoughts please read “The Repair and Upkeep of the Constitution of the United States”, “God’s Agenda vs Man’s Agenda”, and the blogs I have written on my blog site  – https://jimheadrick.wordpress.com/.

Please have a good day and remember that if things continue as they are our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, may never have the opportunity to make any decisions at all.
