the corruption of absolute power ....
When there is no restraint there is that assumption that nothing will occur .... check out students in public school ... the assumption there will be no consequences leads to pushing the ethical and criminal envelope and unethical people with no conscience will assume unto themselves the same limits of a Kim or Putin or any other despot. The assumption that we are immune to this phenomena is incorrect. Hitler might have been an aberration but in many ways he was just an extension of the same tactics used by the Kaiser's army in Belgium and France (hostages shot; deportations, and forced labor).
Are we capable of the same .... sure I think so. Obama sees himself as the Black Savior even though he had no past as a slave or even discrimination. So another self absorbed revolutionary in the mode of every modern African leader and damn near all South and Central American leaders .... so why when allowed to do what they want should the Clintons and Obamas be different.

Immigration: The cause of economic

First, thanks for responding. Second, I see your
point on the issues
you bring up in your email. Although I'm inclined
to think that if
the issues are that there hasn't been enough
action in Africa to
prevent civil war, genocide, and ruthless
dictatorships; the mistrust
and dislike for politicians that speak from both
sides of their mouth;
the defensiveness of political parties (in your
case the Democratic
Party) to being wrong; that there is no party in
this country that
really speaks to those values.
I tend to think that both parties in our country
have a rather myopic
view of the American people and what their
concerns are. Republicans
skew towards religion and family values while
undermining that very
agenda at home and abroad, whereas Democrats talk
a good game about
helping everyone suceed, but obviously have never
read the giving
tree. I anxiously await the arrival of legitimate
3rd parties that
aren't shills for a single agenda . . .
First the site was not created as a hate-anyone
site. The truth is it
was created originally as a place to post the
news and with a few
exceptions depending on what's happening, most of
the posts are news items from all sorts of
sources and very little of it is written by
me. Most of the news sources are main stream ....
CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ABC, AP, Reuters ..... etc. This
is easily recognized by the quotation marks and
hyper-markings of the stories. I do not alter the
stories and leave it to the reader to go to the
site and read the whole
account ... as they wish.
I rarely allow totally slanderous or salacious
remarks. A cartoon of
Kerry as a Woody Allen character is not character
dressed in the suit not me. Notice I don't
justify my dislike for his
policies, at least those that he has taken a firm
stand on; to make
personal attacks on his character or intentions.
I have no clue what
he did in Viet-Nam .... but he does ... and he
said he committed
atrocities not me. "Yes, I committed the
same kinds of atrocities as
thousands of other soldiers have committed,"
The atrocities he said
he committed; his contact with the North
Vietnamese while still in the
Naval Reserve ... his site; his words; not mine.
Which stories spews hatred? When you speak about
a Democrat's policies ....it becomes hate speak;
if they mis-speak and you challenge them ...it's
hate speak; if you catch them in a mis statement
or lie it's an attack ad;
( I never had sex with that woman ....BC.)
( or when Kerry said ...''For those of us who are
fortunate to share
an Irish ancestry, we take great pride in the
Senate floor statement by John Kerry, March
18, 1986, as quoted in Frank Phillips' and Brian
C. Mooney's "1986 Statement Counters Kerry's
Stand on Heritage," in the March 6 Boston
"As some of you may know, I am part-English
and part-Irish. And when my Kerry ancestors first
came over to Massachusetts from the old country
to find work in the New World, it was my English
ancestors who refused to hire them."
Why not say I was born of Czech and French
ancestry (or whatever) both Christian and Jewish
heritage and be proud of it.....
If I have failed at this site it for not writing
more of my own stuff
and being lazy at posting too many news
stories... I have forgotten
why I started.... Chinese slave children making
fireworks, dying in
school fires; AIds in Africa not talk but real;

AFGHAN IRAQ, and how
while millions died in RWANDA in the 90's the

in millions. Apathy, ignorance, we can save

legitimate gripe because he casually referred to
all vets as war criminals (himself included). Of
course, having examined those instances
specifically, it seems that his point was more
rhetorical in nature -- but I wasn't there, so I
can't be sure.
Regardless, Vietnam was the dividing point for
many/most in this
nation and I too might be angered if someone I
trusted did something
that I felt violated my trust.
Nevertheless, it still doesn't explain why you in
particular have such
harsh words for the man: Is it all because of his
after Vietnam? Is it that he wanted to be
president at a young age?
Is it that he has a "liberal voting
record"? Is it because he's
running against GWB? Is it because he
"waffles" according to the GOP and
"contemplates" according to the DNC?
And if any of those are the case, how exactly do
they translate into what I've seen on your site
I'm sorry, but I really do want to know, because
I always feel like if
someone hates someone so much (or loves someone,
for that matter),
it's probably good for me to find out why.
U.S. most armed
country with 90 guns per 100 people
Personally I think this is
great news! An armed law abiding citizen is
the best deterrent to any criminal armed or
otherwise. On 9-11-2001 one Armed American
Citizen on each plane .... ONE citizen would
have changed the course of history. Today
those armed citizens would have saved
thousands; we would not live in fear of the
next attack as each plane; each train, truck,
taxi ... car ... would contain Armed American
Citizens. For terrorism to succeed ... there
must be terror and fear. The Armed American
Citizen fears nothing.
It is terrorists and
criminals who need to fear us. Kent Herrick, Editor
Of course arming ships in those
oceans would be a provocative act and cause these
poor misguided victims of American Imperialism to
respond with more weapons. Sea captains should
like all the sheep of the world submit to
slaughter and mayhem. And failing to show their
supline and apologetic demeanor .... just blame
- I'm still amazed; "we shouldn't atagonize
these pirates; then they will go off an hunt
Please stop this drivel! It's the same argument
that an unarmed peerson is safer from retaliation
than an armed person. If the pirates or land
based criminals want to steal from honest people
and you feel safer unarmed ... than please wear a
sign so they will attack you .... because I plan
to shoot back even if it really really makes them
On Knives and guns on the
First I wear legally a knife
everyday, often two and always with a Swiss Army
in my pocket. I use those knives daily. I have
never been convicted of any crime; I do not
resemble vermin of any flavor; I can legally
carry a handgun; am trained; and can protect
myself. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on
the phone. I harass no one and they best not
harass me. Prison are for criminals who commit
crimes not honest folks about their legal
to Kent Herrick
To me you would be a scary person to
meet in my local pub or supermarket Kent!
To each their own I suppose but you
would be arrested in Scotland. America is a different
kettle of fish from here. Can I ask why you travel
through day to day life armed to the teeth?
#12, Kent you sound like you are armed
to the teeth. I carry a knife for utility purposes and
have a carry permit for a gun that I Carry when I travel,
but not at home. I guess Texas can be a dangerous place.
I spend winters in Brownsville and summers at home in
Wisc, just can't handle the cold winters anymore.
I think asking people to hand in their knives is
ridiculous, as always the criminals will keep theirs and
the poor guy on the street will have nothing.
I carry because as a law abiding
citizen we are all members of law enforcement. Police
come and make reports; it is up to each citizen to
protect himself and his family. I am not the least
paranoid; nor am I a danger, as I read above, in bars
where it is illegal to carry guns; I have only been
robbed ... in Denmark ... and a weapon in the hands
of a trained person is the best deterrent to thugs,
mashers, and street vermin. They see my visible knife
on my belt and they don't bother me. It does bother
others but that is their hang up not mine. We have
crime here; but the criminals pick on the weak and
unprotected. On 9-11-2001 ONE person on each airplane
armed would have changed history. The unarmed are
unprotected; or just buy a 24 hour body guard. Kent
Hunter Great answer and to the rest
... We are free man going about our business. I wear
a knife horizonitally every where except in the
Airport and at the Veterans Hospital where I
volunteer. I wear a Leatherman and use it daily. I
often wear a concealed hand gun.
In this short page we (I) are
referred to as criminals, vermin, idiots, and worse.
And I have committed no act of violence; threat or
intimidation. Just because I own and carry a knife
and a gun ...legally I should be jailed in the UK. It
is sad to see that as you remove your right of self
protection your predictaments will increase; you will
experience more crime, and more violence. While in
states and cities where the armed citizen is
encouraged rates of violence is dropping
Here liberals try to reason with
criminals; in Texas we jail them or shoot them ....

Major Terry 148, I've lived in Glasgow,
Edinburgh, London and France and always felt perfectly
safe walking out my front door without a knife or gun or
bazooka or anything else. I've been a few times to
America too and, in the main, felt perfectly safe there
too, though now that I know there are armed nutters
like you, Kent, Byron, Laughing american and apparently
The Devil Himself around I don't fancy going back any
The right to self protection is
obvious, however many people do not have the self control
or discipline to carry weapons. In regard to Guns,
military only, would not trust even police.
The States record on firearms
offensives is shocking but not unique, South Africa is
worse. You seem a decent man but if you fired your gun
and a ricoshaded killed a child, what would you feel like
Well I must trot off to my fitness
center so I can wield my knives accurately. If you
must refer to me in a perjorative sense then kindly
not as "Nutter" since I am a testicular
cancer survivor and less one Nut. Why you
"mob" insists on name calling is beside me
and if you folks who fear us come this way I will
personally avoid defending you in every way possible.
And yes I am responsible for every round I fire so I
practice a lot so I can hit the felon smack in the
Glad I don't live in the good old US of

their concealed guns etc. Hope they are all Magnums boys,

bravo Fifer .... Sorry about
your daughter. I teach the ladies to stick a finger
in both eyes and drive them in to the knuckle ... if
you have a knife then drive it a bit further. Live
Free and Brave. KHerrick
Pointy Sticks What a criminal you
are! Pointy Sticks in the hands of honest folks.
Honest folks should just lie back and take a good
beating; take it like a man until the police arrive,
well if they arrive in time then you will be freed of
guilt that might drift your way for wanting to bash
the offender with a soft gym shoe.
Ban all pointy objects, pens,
pencils, scissors, pipe cleaners, knitting needles
except in trained hands, rocks, bowling bowls and war
clubs. Back to caves! KHerrick
Which Glock? I carry the GLock 22/
.40 in a leather vest holster or a hand made leather
behind the hip concealable. So far today I have gone
on zero rampages; killed no police or other assorted
objects, started no wars, laid waste to the country
side with rape and pillage nor have I committed other
unsavory violent acts. I also stop at red lights and
stop signs. KHerrick
Dear Mr. Cheney;
I doubt in these days you hear it often enough, but thank
The American People whether they know it or not and
whether you are told enough have rarely had a better
vice-president. As a very amateur historian I can't
remember another VP who having stated that his ambitions
did not include the White House, has been more steadfast
in his loyalty to our President; loyal to his principles;
and loyal to the Reagan Revolution.
Salute!! As a wounded veteran told me at the VA where I
volunteer... "THANKS" .... but I said "I
wasn't able to serve; I was physically unfit" and he
replied ... "I didn't need you then ... I need you
Your today .... has been the eight years of this
administration and your service has been exemplary.

Do Democrats Live in a
They vote to surrender in Iraq; Iran takes hostages.
Iranians see a power vaccuum in Iraq, all of the Middle
East, if the Democrats can force the U.S. out.
Ahmadinejad now can twist our staunch ally the Brits, who
have almost no offensive power in the region and would
have to rely on the American Navy for support and guess
what? The Democrats are willing to deny that help by
The American Democrat Party is the last great hope for
the insurgents to win, not on the battlefields but in the
Halls of Congress. Iran also sees the weakness and wants
evict the British from the Persian Gulf and it's politics
by lowering their prestige in the region. Nothing happens
in a vaccuum.
Solution ... send a B-2 full of flares over Teheran and
light up the sky one time in warning ..... then light up
the sky for a fact.
is a Sad Commentary
It is a sad
commentary on the nature of Democrat Party Politics when
that party prays for an American/Iraqi Defeat .... they
know if there is a stable, freely elected government in
Iraq that it lessens their chances for an election
victory in 2006 and 2008. They are willing to see
Americans and Iraqis die in greater numbers for their own
political self interest and encourage our enemies to
continue a war that they can not win UNLESS THE
DEMOCRATS ARE ELECTED TO POWER.
Is this the
limits of Democrat Patriotism. .... the more American
DEAD; then the greater chances of their election
and the sooner they can withdraw from the world and leave
the battlefield to our enemies.
On Should Ron Paul be backed by
conservatives. .... as a realist he
needs seasoning ...so running ...and losing to a more
seasoned Republican will help him.
Conservatives better understand that there is no ... no
Ronald Reagan out there this four years. If Ron Paul is
the reincarnation then he'll have to do like 1976 and get
name recognition and face time.... but Conservatives
better realize that they can not get 100% this election
from any candidate that can win and winning is the key.
They can bitch all they want about how Bush is not Reagan
and how Bush is not a real conservative and they may be
right; but can you imagine what the last 7 years with
Gore as President would have meant.
Let's pull up our big boy panties and support winners.
Or we can have 8 years of Hillary .... but then we'll be
allowed to bitch but not govern.
ARE BACK .... Just in time too!!!
People can be polled; the Senate can vote, the papers
can pander; the cable can carp, the heads can yak
.... but in the end Bush did not start world
terrorism; he does not control world oil; he did
not personally fly a plane into the Pentagon (jumping
out really fast at the last second); blow up the
dikes in New Orleans causing damage to only black
houses while sparing whites; cause global warming and
secretly kill every whale in ocean allowing the
Japanese and Norwegians to have whale oil
complexions and blubber steaks.... HE HAS....
lowered taxes, killed terrorists; captured and killed
a mad dictator and his murdering sons; put Iraq on
whatever road they want to try; liberated
Afghanistan, protected Israel, built a better armed
forces, a better economy and better quality of life
in the last 6 years..... and did it with damn
little support from his enemies and now even less
from some of his so called allies and friends..... he
should toss the middle finger to all of those that
are short sighted and dim witted.... BUT no
that's not our President but it is what his
enemies do.... ok maybe Bush should resign ...
PREZ CHENEY!! ok by me too.... and then Rice
for VP and then Rice for President hmmmm....
But the President has brains and class.... and we
like that in our leaders.
'Lo, there do I see my father. 'Lo,
there do I see...

On Crooked Plumbers....
a letter to the editor of the Kerrville Daily Times
I hate thieves. And there is one amongst
us. An elderly and nearly blind veteran related to me
that he had a very small job done on his house. One 8
foot PVC pipe and one 10 foot PVC pipe were laid along
the inside floor with a few couplers and some cement. The
home owner called a plumber; without giving an estimate
the plunderer worked on the pipes less than an hour and
given where the home is driving time out and back would
be another hour. Two Hours Max. The charge was $800.00
and to be paid in cash.
The elderly and nearly blind vet paid.
I will find out who this person is and will ask the
prosecutor to file charges. I doubt in this county that
he will escape a guilty verdict of out right theft or
I suggest he return the sum of $600.00 to the homeowner
and thank his lucky star he didn't try and pull this on
able bodied folks. Possibly the IRS will be interested in
checking to see if he records cash transactions.
Shame on people who steal and especially from our most

AFGHAN FREE ELECTIONS
own votes of 1787 -1788 and the inauguration of 1789 were

were those groups that destroyed the spirit of the

brilliant West Coast.
Jump forward forty
years. The Enemy in Iraq and others locations around
the world are now applying the pressure, murdering
civilians, blowing up churches and schools in an attempt
to stop a democratic election and who rises to their
assistance but the same people. The North
Vietnamese admitted it was the American Left that
encouraged them to fight on and fight on until the
American Left could convince a wavering Congress to stop
the war; and now a new generation of international

gangs of murderers from their just punishment at the

On your web page of August 8, 2004 .... at 10:00 AM ....
under "Political News" you have selected 1
story on President Bush and 5 on Sen. Kerry. 50% of the
space to Mr. Kerry ..... 10% to Mr. Bush . Is this you
normal tilt or can we expect worse. I notice you will run
stories about "F 9-11" a really fair and
balanced piece of fiction but removed a paid ad for the

two kinds of vets. Those that your station supports and
then all the other liars and malcontents.

As one of the early pioneers for a casual work
environment recent medical research has confirmed that
the gentleman's tie is not only archaic but dangerous.
When I hired on at Ford Motor Credit three things were
mandatory, business attire including jacket and tie;
shoes, and the removal of facial hair. Ford Credit
Insurance Operation personnel lead the fight to remove
these constrictitures. Texans broke the "wing
tip" barrier with more fashionable and seriously
more expensive western boots. Facial hair returned when
bosses showed up with mustaches and beards. But the
ubitiquious tie that was another matter.
Again Texans and Arkansans lead the way. We were able to
clearly and concisely show that jackets interfered with
business. People in the South distrusted business men who
wear jackets and ties. The Company began to relent.
Little did they know that they were at the fore-front of
true medical breakthrough. ................
Study finds neckties can spread germs .... in a hospital
study of neckties....
".... ties were found to harbor disease-causing
bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas
aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae."
Although this study applied to doctors the
http://Herrickreport.com believes that in the interest of
all Americans that the serious medical problem should be
dealt with swiftly and that Neckties should be outlawed
as a serious and dangerous national health risk.
And that Necktie Companies be required to pay huge and
exorbitant sums of money to all men in compensation for
years of possible illness caused by
