From Townhall.com:

A company named Blueseed is a year away from offering entrepreneurs an inexpensive place, near Silicon Valley, in which to develop their products.

“Blueseed will station a ship 12 nautical miles from the coast of San Francisco, in international waters. The location will allow startup entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world to start or grow their company near Silicon Valley, without the need for a U.S. work visa. The ship will be converted into a coworking and co-living space, and will have high-speed Internet access and daily transportation to the mainland via ferry boat. So far, over 1000 entrepreneurs from 60+ countries expressed interest in living on the ship.”

Here is a sampling of images from their page of Concept Vessels.

Reuters) – More than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the country’s 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday that highlights the difficulties facing lawmakers trying to reform the U.S. immigration system.

The online survey shows resistance to easing immigration laws despite the biggest push for reform in Congress since 2007.

Thirty percent of those polled think that most illegal immigrants, with some exceptions, should be deported, while 23 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be deported.

Only 5 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States legally, and 31 percent want most illegal immigrants to stay.

An illegal alien, in Polk County , Florida , who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop, ended up “executing” the deputy who stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state-wide manhunt ensued. The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area. As soon as he took a shot at the SWAT team, officers opened fire on him. They hit the guy 68 times.

Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why they had to shoot the poor, undocumented immigrant 68 times. Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel: “Because that’s all the bullets we had.” Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what!

The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes. When asked by a reporter how that could be, since there were 68 bullet wounds in his body, he simply replied: … “When you are shot 68 times you are naturally gonna die.”

Stay with this — the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events.

The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandmother replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

‘ television

‘ penicillin

‘ polio shots

‘ frozen foods

‘ Xerox

‘ contact lenses

‘ Frisbees and

‘ the pill

There were no:

‘ credit cards

‘ laser beams or

‘ ball-point pens

Man had not invented:

‘ pantyhose

‘ air conditioners

‘ dishwashers

‘ clothes dryers

‘ and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

‘ man hadn’t yet walked on the moon

Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. ….. … And then lived together..

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, “Sir”.

And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege…

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios.

And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.

If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk

The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam….

Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . But who could afford one?

Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:

‘ “grass” was mowed,

‘ “coke” was a cold drink,

‘ “pot” was something your mother cooked in and

‘ “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.

‘ “Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,

‘ ” chip” meant a piece of wood,

‘ “hardware” was found in a hardware store and

‘ “software” wasn’t even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap.

How old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old lady in mind….you are in for a shock!

Read on to see — pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you ready ?????

This woman would be only 59 years old.

(Florida Today) — A 21-year-year-old woman faces hate-crime charges after police said she repeatedly spit at a Walmart customer who told her she entered the wrong door and later proclaimed that “Americans are pushing us around.” (emphasis added)

Nuha Mohammed Al-Doaifi, a Saudi Arabian national, faces a charge of battery with a hate-crime enhancement after Palm Bay police were called at about 1 p.m. Sunday to the Walmart store at 1040 Malabar Road to investigate reports of a disturbance.

The hate-crime enhancement means that the battery charge could be elevated to a felony.

Police said the incident started when Al-Doaifi attempted to roll a shopping cart into the store and struck the exit door.

A customer told her she was using the wrong door, prompting Al-Doaifi to spit in the person’s face before turning and walking on into the store to go shopping, police said.

“Her actions were directed at random people based on their ethnicity and that’s according to her own statement,” Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman said.

Witnesses said Al-Doaifi, accompanied by her 2-year-old son, also spit at another customer who apparently got to close to her.

The spittle missed in that case, police said.

Workers at the store were notified and called police.

Several patrol officers approached Al-Doaifi to talk in the store and asked her why she spat at customers.

“Americans are pushing us around,” Al-Doaifi stated before officers took her into custody, according to reports.

She was arrested and booked into the Brevard County Detention Center in Sharpes where she remains jailed today.

     Barack. H. Obama II would not be the first high-profile person whose ancestry had dubious characters in it. In today’s Internet age, he certainly won’t be the last. Having released his long-form Hawaiian birth certificate, which he has fought hard to keep under wraps, Obama has tried to lay that part of his hidden past behind him. From all indications, under the premise that the birth certificate is accurate, Barack Obama is listed as having been born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 to a father of British citizenship and a mother who was an American, giving the child dual citizenship status. That would move any question of his eligibility to be President into the legal interpretation of “Natural Born Citizen”, and the intentions of the Founding Fathers in that regard. Of course, as with any legal question, the experts are split.

      So the experts can debate the validity of the long form birth certificate.

       Support for it validity can be found in one of the unscrubbed Obama records trails.

       As mentioned in an earlier post, the Boston Globe had requested in a FOIA request the immigration files on Obama’s father. The Globe, one of the Kool-aid drinking media, actually had the files in 2009, and could have helped dispel the birth certificate issue then. But, given the manner in which the present day media annointed Barack Obama to the Presidency and have done whatever necessary to protect and defend him (especially as his lack of leadership skills has become clearly evident, i.e. The Empty Suit), it is no surprise that they were not revealed until just recently.

        Here is the link for the Immigration files on Barack Hussein Obama (Sr):

            http://www.scribd.com/doc/54015762/Barack-Hussein-Obama-Sr-Immigration-File

      The 55 pages of documents make for some interesting reading.

      What is gleaned from the files is that Obama Sr. was a womanizer and a bigamist, if not a polygamist. The government had received several calls of concern from a parent whose daughter wanted to go back to Kenya to marry him after he left Harvard.

      Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama were purported to be married on February 2, 1961. (No marriage record has yet been found, but given divorce papers a few years later, it can be presumed that the record exists somewhere).

      Baby Obama is notated on some of the forms filled out by Barack Sr., and left blank on others.

      There is support for the reports that Stanley Ann Dunham had planned to (and likely did) attend the University of Washington the semester after Obama’s birth, as there is a note in the file that indicated that Stanley Ann (and child) resided with her parents in Hawaii, and Obama Sr. resided elsewhere in Honolulu.

       Barack Obama (II) was born on August 4, 1961, and Obama Sr’s Student VISA stay expired on August 9, 1961. He applied for his extension on August 31, 1961, and was granted a stay through August 9, 1962.

       There is a record of another woman who was in the US at the time Obama Sr was at Harvard, and she went to London. The government informed the British authorities of issues about her, and her boyfriend Obama, describing him as a “slippery character”

****

      All in all, the file makes for interesting reading in some places. But it begs the question, in light of Obama’s “Dreams of His Father“, who was Obama really writing about, or, if the book was in fact written by someone like Bill Ayers, as has been suggested, what was the purpose of book at all.

      If Obama wants to cast the story of his American tapestry, his non-existent father should only be a blip on the screen. How his mother raised him and influenced him until she shipped him back to the States to his grandparents?…. that is the fabric of his story. The role as the father figure in his early years that Lolo Soetoro had… that is a part of the hemming. The grounding that Toots Dunham gave him, and the influence of Grandpa Dunham and his associations with the likes of Frank Marshall Davis……….. these sew the fabric together, providing the insight into his later decisions, like sitting in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years as he spread his venomous vitriole. The bigger question then becomes, how does all of this early influence affect the decisions that he makes today? This is a question that only history will be able to provide the answer, after the American public has suffered because of it, IMHO.

It was only a matter of time that the left wingnuts would put forth the idea that our POTUS should be able to be born elsewhere…….
 
“The focus on President Obama’s birth certificate diminishes the true questions about the unfairness of the conditions in the Constitution to run for president, which are long overdue for change.”

*SNIP*

“America continues to be a melting pot of immigrants. In this day and age, there are tens of millions of first generation Americans wrongfully barred by the Constitution from running for president.”

“There is no legitimate reason why this class of Americans should be excluded by this rule from a biased era. It’s time for the passage of a constitutional amendment to allow anyone who has lived in the United States, either as a “natural” or “naturalized” citizen, for 14 years or more to hold office as president.”

SALUTE to  Denmark  .. This could very well happen here on our Continent….  

Susan MacAllen is a contributing editor for (FamilySecurityMatters.org) Salute the Danish Flag – it’s a Symbol of   Western Freedom By Susan MacAllen 

In 1978-9 I was living and studying in Denmark  . But in 1978 – even in    Copenhagen, one didn’t see Muslim immigrants. 

The Danish population embraced visitors, celebrated the exotic, went  out of its way to protect each of its citizens. It was proud of its new  brand of socialist liberalism one in development since the conservatives had  lost power in 1929 – a system where no worker had to struggle to survive,  where one ultimately could count upon the state as in, perhaps, no other  western nation at the time. 
  
The rest of  Europe  saw the Scandinavians as free-thinking, progressive  and infinitely generous in their welfare policies. Denmark boasted low crime  rates, devotion to the environment, a superior educational system and a history of humanitarianism. 
  
Denmark was also most generous in its immigration policies – it 
offered the best welcome in Europe to the new immigrant: generous welfare  payments from first arrival plus additional perks in transportation, housing  and education. It was determined to set a world example for inclusiveness  and multiculturalism.   How could it have predicted that one day in 2005 a series of political cartoons in a  newspaper would spark violence that would leave dozens dead in  the streets -all because its commitment to multiculturalism would come back  to bite? 
  
By the 1990’s the growing urban Muslim population was obvious – and   its unwillingness to integrate into Danish society was obvious.  Years of immigrants had settled into Muslim-exclusive enclaves.

 

As the  Muslim leadership became more vocal about what they considered the decadence  of  Denmark’s liberal way of life, the Danes – once so welcoming – began to feel slighted. Many Danes had begun to see Islam as incompatible with their  long-standing values: belief in personal liberty and free speech, in 
equality for women, in tolerance for other ethnic groups, and a deep pride  in Danish heritage and history. 

An article by Daniel Pipes and Lars  Hedegaard, in which they forecasted, accurately, that the growing immigrant 
problem in Denmark would explode. In the article they reported: 
  
‘Muslim immigrants constitute 5 percent of the population but consume  upwards of 40 percent of the welfare spending.’ 

 

‘Muslims are only 4 percent of Denmark’s 5.4 million people but make  up a majority of the country’s convicted rapists, an especially  combustible issue given that practically all the female victims are 
non-Muslim. Similar, if lesser, disproportions are found in other crimes. 
  
‘Over time, as Muslim immigrants increase in numbers, they wish less  to mix with the indigenous population. A recent survey finds that only 5 percent of young Muslim immigrants   would readily marry a Dane.’ 

Forced marriages – promising a newborn daughter in Denmark to a male  cousin in the home country, then compelling her to marry him, sometimes on  pain of death – are one problem’ 
  
‘Muslim leaders openly declare their goal of introducing Islamic law  once Denmark’s Muslim population grows large enough – a not-that-remote prospect. If present trends persist, one sociologist 
estimates, every third inhabitant of Denmark  in 40 years will be Muslim.’ 
  
It is easy to understand why a growing number of Danes would feel that   Muslim immigrants show little respect for Danish values and laws.   An example is the phenomenon common to other European countries and    Canada: some Muslims in Denmark  who opted to leave the Muslim faith have been murdered in the name of Islam, while others hide in fear for their  lives. Jews are also threatened and harassed openly by Muslim leaders  in Denmark, a country where once Christian citizens worked to smuggle out nearly all of their 7,000 Jews by night to  Sweden  – before the Nazis could  invade. I think of my Danish friend Elsa – who. as a teenager. had dreaded crossing the street to the bakery every morning under the eyes of occupying  Nazi soldiers – and I wonder what she would say today. 
  
In 2001,  Denmark  elected the most conservative government in some 70  years– one that had some decidedly non-generous ideas about liberal unfettered immigration. Today  Denmark  has the strictest immigration policies  in  Europe  . ( Its effort to protect itself has been met with accusations of  ‘racism’ by liberal media across Europe – even as other governments struggle to right the social problems wrought by years of too-lax immigration.) 
  
If you wish to become Danish, you must attend three years of language  classes. You must pass a test on  Denmark’s history, culture, and a Danish language test . 

Then, you must live in Denmark for 7 years before applying for citizenship.  

You must demonstrate an intent to work, and have a job waiting. If you wish  to bring a spouse into Denmark, you must both be over 24 years of age, and  you won’t find it so easy anymore to move your friends and family to    Denmark with you. 
 
You will not be allowed to build a mosque in  Copenhagen. Although your  children have a choice of some 30 Arabic culture and language schools  in Denmark, they will be strongly encouraged to assimilate to Danish society   in ways that past immigrants weren’t. 
  
In 2006, the Danish minister for employment, Claus Hjort Frederiksen,  spoke publicly of the burden of Muslim immigrants on the Danish welfare  system, and it was horrifying:

the government’s welfare committee had calculated that if immigration from Third World countries were blocked, 75  percent of the cuts needed to sustain the huge welfare system in coming decades would be unnecessary. In other words, the welfare system, as it  existed, was being exploited by immigrants to the point of eventually  bankrupting the government. ‘We are simply forced to adopt a new policy on immigration’. 

 ‘The calculations of the welfare committee are terrifying and show how  unsuccessful the integration of immigrants has been up to now,’ he said. 
  
A large thorn in the side of  Denmark’s imams is the Minister of  Immigration and Integration, Rikke Hvilshoj.. She makes no bones about the  new policy toward immigration,

‘The number of foreigners coming to the  country makes a difference,’ Hvilshoj says, ‘There is an inverse correlation  between how many come here and how well we can receive the foreigners that  come.’

And on Muslim immigrants needing to demonstrate a willingness to blend in,

 ‘In my view,  Denmark  should be a country with  room for different cultures and religions. Some values, however, are  more important than others. We refuse to question democracy, equal rights,  and freedom of speech.’ 
  
Hvilshoj has paid a price for her show of backbone.. Perhaps to test her resolve, the leading radical imam in Denmark, Ahmed Abdel Rahman Abu  Laban, demanded that the government pay blood money to the family of a  Muslim who was murdered in a suburb of Copenhagen, stating that the family’s  thirst for revenge could be thwarted for money.. When Hvilshoj dismissed his demand, he argued that in Muslim culture the payment of retribution money  was common, to which Hvilshoj replied that what is done in a Muslim country  is not necessarily what is done in Denmark. The Muslim reply came soon after: her house was torched while she, her husband and children slept.All  managed to escape unharmed, but she and her family were moved to a secret location and she and other ministers were assigned bodyguards for the first  time – in a country where such murderous violence was once so scarce.. 
  
Her government has slid to the right, and her borders have tightened.  Many believe that what happens in the next decade will determine  whether Denmark survives as a bastion of good living, humane thinking and  social responsibility, or whether it becomes a nation at civil war with  supporters of Sharia law. 
  
And meanwhile, Canadians clamor for stricter immigration policies, and  demand an end to state welfare programs that allow many immigrants to live on the public dole. As we in Canada look at the enclaves of Muslims amongst  us, and see   those who enter our shores too easily, dare live on our taxes, yet refuse to embrace our culture, respect our traditions, participate in  our legal system, obey our laws, speak our language, appreciate our history 
..  we would do well to look to  Denmark  , and say a prayer for her future and 
for our own..
