Candidates

Filed under: Carson Politics — Joe Eiben @ 1:05 am

Help, Carson City find candidates for the elections next year!

Carson City is in need of candidates that have a business background to run a city that is in financial difficulties. We need people that can dedicate themselves full time to the job of running our city. The mayor and supervisors positions require full time attention for a city our size. This city cannot be run on a part time basis if we expect to continue to have the current level  of services, we now enjoy.

I know we have some retired business people in our community that would like to pay back society for their ability to retire. Please, come forward and help our beautiful city become a brighter jewel.

Is It a WAR?

Filed under: National — Joe Eiben @ 5:14 pm

>=================================================================
>Please take the time to read the attached essay by Dr. Chong. It is without a doubt the most articulate and convincing writing I have read regarding the War in Iraq. If you have any doubts ease open your mind to his essay and give a fair evaluation.

 I had no idea who Dr. Chong is or the source of these thoughts… so when I received them, I almost deleted them - as well-written as they are. But then I did a “Google search” on the Doctor and found him to be a retired Air Force Surgeon of all things and past Commander of Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio. So he is real, is connected to Veterans affairs in California, and these are his thoughts. They are worth reading and thinking about!(the same Google search will direct you to some of his other thought-provoking writings.)

 *Subject: Muslims, terrorist and the USA. A different spin on Iraq war.

 This WAR is for REAL! Dr. Vernon Chong, Major General, USAF, Retired  Tuesday, July 12, 2005 To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it. Our country is now facing the most serious threat to its existence, as we know it, that we have faced in your lifetime and mine (which includes WWII).

 The deadly seriousness is greatly compounded by the fact that there are very few of us who think we can possibly lose this war and even fewer who realize what losing really means.

 First, let’s examine a few basics:
 1. When did the threat to us start? Many will say September 11, 2001. The answer as far as the United States is concerned is 1979, 22 years prior to September 2001, with the following attacks on us:

 * Iran Embassy Hostages, 1979;
 * Beirut, Lebanon Embassy 1983;
 * Beirut, Lebanon Marine Barracks 1983;
 * Lockerbie, Scotland Pan-Am flight to New York 1988;
 * First New York World Trade Center attack 1993;
 * Dhahran, Saudi Arabia Khobar Towers Military complex 1996;
 * Nairobi, Kenya US Embassy 1998;
 * Dares Salaam, Tanzania US Embassy 1998;
 * Aden, Yemen USS Cole 2000;
 * New York World Trade Center 2001;
 * Pentagon 2001.

 (Note that during the period from 1981 to 2001 there were 7,581 terrorist attacks worldwide).

2. Why were we attacked?
 Envy of our position, our success, and our freedoms. The attacks happened during the administrations of Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2. We cannot fault either the Republicans or Democrats as there were no provocations by any of the presidents or their immediate predecessors, Presidents Ford or Carter.

 3. Who were the attackers?
 In each case, the attacks on the US were carried out by Muslims.

 4. What is the Muslim population of the World? 25%.

 5. Isn’t the Muslim Religion peaceful?
 Hopefully, but that is really not material. There is no doubt that the predominately Christian population of Germany was peaceful, but under the dictatorial leadership of Hitler (who was also Christian), that made no difference. You either went along with the administration or you were eliminated. There were 5 to 6 million Christians killed by the Nazis for political reasons (including 7,000 Polish priests). (see
 http://www.nazis.testimony.co.uk/7-a.htm )

 Thus, almost the same number of Christians were killed by the Nazis, as the six million holocaust Jews who were killed by them, and we seldom heard of anything other than the Jewish atrocities. Although Hitler kept the world focused on the Jews, he had no hesitancy about killing anyone who got in his way of exterminating the Jews or of taking over the world- German, Christian or any others. Same with the Muslim terrorists. They focus the world on the US, but kill all in the way — their own people or the Spanish, French or anyone else.
 The point here is that just like the peaceful Germans were of no protection to anyone from the Nazis, no matter how many peaceful Muslims there may be, they are no protection for us from the terrorist Muslim leaders and what they are fanatically bent on doing — by theirown pronouncements — killing all of us “infidels.” I don’t blame the peaceful Muslims. What would you do if the choice was shut up or die?

 6. So who are we at war with?

 There is no way we can honestly respond that it is anyone other than the Muslim terrorists. Trying to be politically correct and avoid verbalizing this conclusion can well be fatal. There is no way to winif you don’t clearly recognize and articulate who you are fighting.

 So with that background, now to the two major questions:

 1. Can we lose this war?
 2. What does losing really mean?
 If we are to win, we must clearly answer these two pivotal questions:
 We can definitely lose this war, and as anomalous as it may sound, the major reason we can lose is that so many of us simply do not fathom the answer to the second question - What does losing mean?

 It would appear that a great many of us think that losing the war means hanging our heads, bringing the troops home and going on about our business, like post Vietnam. This is as far from the truth as one can get.

 What losing really means is:
 We would no longer be the premier country in the world. The attacks will not subside, but rather will steadily increase. Remember, they want us dead, not just quiet. If they had just wanted us quiet, they would not have produced an increasing series of attacks against us, over the past 18 years. The plan was clearly, for terrorist to attack us, until we were neutered and submissive to them.

 We would of course have no future support from other nations, for fear of reprisals and for the reason that they would see, we are impotent and cannot help them.

 They will pick off the other non-Muslim nations, one at a time. It will be increasingly easier for them. They already hold Spain hostage.  It doesn’t matter whether it was right or wrong for Spain to withdraw its troops from Iraq. Spain did it because the Muslim terrorists bombed their train and told them to withdraw the troops. Anything else they want Spain to do will be done. Spain is finished.

 The next will probably be France. Our one hope on France is that theymight see the light and realize that if we don’t win, they are finished too, in that they can’t resist the Muslim terrorists without us. However, it may already be too late for France. France is already 20% Muslim and fading fast!

 If we lose the war, our production, income, exports and way of life will all vanish as we know it. After losing, who would trade or dealwith us, if they were threatened by the Muslims. If we can’t stop the Muslims, how could anyone else?
> >

 The Muslims fully know what is riding on this war, and therefore are completely committed to winning, at any cost. We better know it too and be likewise committed to winning at any cost.
> >

 Why do I go on at such lengths about the results of losing? Simple. Until we recognize the costs of losing, we cannot unite and really put 100% of our thoughts and efforts into winning. And it is going to take that 100% effort to win.
 So, how can we lose the war?

 Again, the answer is simple. We can lose the war by imploding.” That is, defeating ourselves by refusing to recognize the enemy and their purpose, and really digging in and lending full support to the war effort If we are united, there is no way that we can lose. If we continue to be divided, there is no way that we can win!

 Let me give you a few examples of how we simply don’t comprehend the life and death seriousness of this situation.
 President Bush selects Norman Mineta as Secretary of Transportation. Although all of the terrorist attacks were committed by Muslim menbetween 17 and 40 years of age, Secretary Mineta refuses to allow profiling. Does that sound like we are taking this thing seriously? This is war! For the duration, we are going to have to give up some of the civil rights we have become accustomed to. We had better be prepared to lose some of our civil rights temporarily or we will most
 certainly lose all of them permanently.
 And don’t worry that it is a slippery slope. We gave up plenty of civil rights during WWII, and immediately restored them after the victory and in fact added many more since then.

 Do I blame President Bush or President Clinton before him?

 No, I blame us for blithely assuming we can maintain all of our
 Political Correctness, and all of our civil rights during this
 conflict and have a clean, lawful, honorable war. None of those words apply to war. Get them out of your head.
 Some have gone so far in their criticism of the war and/or the
 Administration that it almost seems they would literally like to seeus lose. I hasten to add that this isn’t because they are disloyal. It is because they just don’t recognize what losing means. Nevertheless, that conduct gives the impression to the enemy that we are divided and weakening. It concerns our friends, and it does great damage to our cause.
 Of more recent vintage, the uproar fueled by the politicians and media regarding the treatment of some prisoners of war, perhaps exemplifies best what I am saying. We have recently had an issue, involving the treatment of a few Muslim prisoners of war, by a small group of our military police. These are the type prisoners who just a few months ago were throwing their own people off buildings, cutting off their hands, cutting out their tongues and otherwise murdering their own people just for disagreeing with Saddam Hussein.

 And just a few years ago these same type prisoners chemically killed 400,000 of their own people for the same reason. They are also the same type of enemy fighters, who recently were burning Americans, and dragging their charred corpses through the streets of Iraq.

 And still more recently, the same type of enemy that was and is
 providing videos to all news sources internationally, of the beheading of American prisoners they held.
 Compare this with some of our press and politicians, who for several days have thought and talked about nothing else but the “humiliating” of some Muslim prisoners — not burning them, not dragging their charred corpses through the streets, not beheading them, but “humiliating” them.
 Can this be for real?
 The politicians and pundits have even talked of impeachment of theSecretary of Defense. If this doesn’t show the complete lack of comprehension and understanding of the seriousness of the enemy we are> fighting, the life and death struggle we are in and the disastrous results of losing this war, nothing can.
 To bring our country to a virtual political standstill over this
 prisoner issue makes us look like Nero playing his fiddle as Rome burned –totally oblivious to what is going on in the real world.> Neither we, nor any other country, can survive this internal strife. Again I say, this does not mean that some of our politicians or media people are disloyal. It simply means that they are absolutely oblivious to the magnitude, of the situation we are in and into which the Muslim terrorists have been pushing us, for many years.

 Remember, the Muslim terrorists stated goal is to kill all infidels! That translates into ALL non-Muslims — not just in the United State, but throughout the world.

 We are the last bastion of defense.
 We have been criticized for many years as being ‘arrogant.’ That charge is valid in at least one respect. We are arrogant in that we believe that we are so good, powerful and smart, that we can win the hearts and minds of all those who attack us, and that with both hands tied behind our back, we can defeat anything bad in the world!

 We can’t!

 If we don’t recognize this, our nation as we know it will not survive, and no other free country in the world will survive if we are defeated.
 And finally, name any Muslim countries throughout the world that allow freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, equal rights for anyone — let alone everyone, equal status or any status for women, or that have been productive in one single way that contributes to the good of the world.

 This has been a long way of saying that we must be united on this war or we will be equated in the history books to the self-inflicted fall of the Roman Empire . If, that is, the Muslim leaders will allow history books to be written or read.

 If we don’t win this war right now, keep a close eye on how the
 Muslims take over France in the next 5 years or less. They will
 continue to increase the Muslim population of France and continue to encroach little by little, on the established French traditions. The French will be fighting among themselves, over what should or should not be done, which will continue to weaken them and keep them from anyunited resolve. Doesn’t that sound eerily familiar?
 Democracies don’t have their freedoms taken away from them by some external military force. Instead, they give their freedoms away, politically correct piece by politically correct piece.

 And they are giving those freedoms away to those who have shown, worldwide that they abhor freedom and will not apply it to you or even to themselves, once they are in power.

 They have universally shown that when they have taken over, they then start brutally killing each other over who will be the few who control the masses. Will we ever stop hearing from the politically correct, about the “peaceful Muslims”?

 I close on a hopeful note, by repeating what I said above. If we are united, there is no way that we can lose. I hope now after the election, the factions in our country will begin to focus on the critical situation we are in, and will unite to save our country. It is your future we are talking about! Do whatever you can to preserve it.

 After reading the above, we all must do this not only for ourselves, but our children, our grandchildren, our country and the world.

 Whether Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal and that include the Politicians and media of our country and the free world!

 Please forward this to any you feel may want, or NEED to read it. Our “leaders” in Congress ought to read it, too. There are those that find fault with our country, but it is obvious to anyone who truly thinks through this, that we must UNITE!

 If you would like to see who this fellow is go to this Air Force web sight and look him up.

More Cash needed?

Filed under: Carson Politics — Joe Eiben @ 12:38 am

The wisdom of our elected officials is being stretched to its limits. After all these years of an empty building now is the time to negotiate with the owner to have it return a profit for our city. I have to ask since I do not know, did anyone try to negotiate with “Jethro” to have tenants or was anything “Jethro” wanted to do out of the question?

Any and all the empty store fronts in our community (there are a lot, look around) are now open to ask for cash to help rent them, right? The old Kmart is the most obvious but what about all the store fronts that “Shelly” manages? She obviously needs assistance.
I have to side with supervisor Richard; how can the city continue to give out cash even if it is delayed tax deferment for the retailers.
Now the next question is who (Richard Shelly) do you want as supervisors the next term to represent our financial security. Do you want to replace them? You will have a chance in the next election, next year.

Elections Coming?

Filed under: Uncategorized, National — Joe Eiben @ 6:26 pm

What else can the republican party do to help the democrats recover the office of the president?

Who will replace RNC leadership?

Will the republican party find that the public will listen to? Is there anyone?

Please, find a voice for our party; we need one badly.

Will the “new” voice be conservative or a “RINO”?

Can we do anything else to help the democrates…..

Does Carson City need new elected officials?

Filed under: Carson Politics — Joe Eiben @ 5:44 am

Can Carson City continue to pay its bills if it does not improve its tax base?

Will our Carson City elected leadership ever decide who they want to live in Carson City? Do they want the mature residents, the youths, the low income families, or who knows? They seem to want everybody but how can you please everybody with a limited resources?

Focus the few resources we have on one group. I suggest you focus on the mature group. They have more disposable income then any other group and are willing to spend it on their grand children. Maybe this will encourage the other demographics to also spend money on our children. The desire to have the disposal income may inspire the younger people to work more to amass the wealth that the mature group has saved. Maybe!

The mature demographics spend on things for themselves, their grand children and their kids. They need health services, gift shops, homes , automobiles, financial services (banks and money managers) and more. They need homes or have paid off their home and need to remodel.

More to come on this subject as candidates step forward.  PLEASE, exam the candidates for all  the offices and vote your own will.

Today’s “MAN”

Filed under: Uncategorized, National — Joe Eiben @ 4:56 am

Would today’s man even survive a hundred years ago?

Yes, even in the nineteen hundreds a mere one hundred years ago in our industrialized society would today’s urbanized man survive? Today’s man is much to feminized to be able to survive when expected to work to survive. Today’s man works for things and not for family as they have in the past. Is there hope for today’s man to be a man? Is this really what a woman wants?

Are we as men expected to allow our world collapse around us and not fight for anything? How can our society survive if we are not willing or capable to fight for there beliefs? Do our men have any beliefs? Beliefs are the only thing we have to cling to. Some men only have a belief in things; “the man with the most things win”. What do you win?

There was a time in our recent past that we had faith and beleifs in our families. The family was the only thing and still must be the only thing we have. Look around and see if you can find some THING that makes you happy! Then become a man! A man looks after his family and supports his family in every way.

OK, you tell me the difference between a man and a woman….

Harry R., our Senator?

Filed under: Nevada — Joe Eiben @ 8:59 pm

It is a sorry fact that our senator (?) has to resort to name calling to put down a man who has a reputation as a supporter of our armed services.

Mr. Rush needs your support. With out your support a phrase comes to mind …. “when they came after my neighbor, I ignored it, when they came after the next group, I ignore it, … by the the time they came after me there was no one to stand up for me”. Yes, this is very poorly quoted but there are many out there that have no idea where this para phrased quote came from.

Even if you are not a conservative this should open your eyes to censorship!

Opinions vs facts

Filed under: National — Joe Eiben @ 10:38 pm

I was fortunate to hear Max Baer speak last night and he brought up a very good point.

What is the difference between an opinion and facts. What I write is my opinion. It is based on my limited experience and a little fact. But be aware this is my opinion.

Now facts mean you are not as lazy as me and you research the subject and have notations where the facts came from. This is what a reporter used to do. Most articles today are more opinion than fact (my opinion). Fact is not what your neighbor told you or your aunt Jane. OK, she was there but it is still not fact. Our memories can fool use or color things the way we philosophically see things.

This relates to one of my favorite subjects, polotics. The difference between a democtrate and a republican is; one does something and the other expects it done for him (my opinion). Oh, yes which is which?

Carson City Nevada

Filed under: Carson Politics — Joe Eiben @ 4:42 am

Carson City is on the edge of greatness but the vision is very short sited by our leadership.

Can we improve our leadership? We need to find new and experienced people to lead our city forward into the future. Our city is growing and changing. Change by many peoples values is bad. In the same light education must be bad because your brain is changing and growing. But if you don’t want to learn a guess you don’t want to change.

Please, Carson listen to experienced people that have been through chnage. There are many new residents that came here because we have such a beatiful and wonderful place to live. We have senior citizens living here that also do not want change but know where the pit falls are to change and can help you avoid them in our fair community.

Yes, we want developers to improve our community but be careful what you wish for you may get it. Or you can prepare for it and make sure we get a great development that the community can be proud of and profit from. Lets look forward to our changing community. Yes, can be better for all of us.

Do you think our elected officials need to change? We have two supervisors and the mayor up for re election….
