In the Old West, when law enforcement was spotty or nonexistent, vigilantes sometimes stepped in. A known cattle rustler might be found face-down in a gully with a terminal case of "lead poisoning," as they used to say in TV westerns. The word ‘vigilante’ has been around for awhile. It is being used more and The Paper - 760.747.7119

more often today . . . and rather than taking on a negative impression more and more of the public appear to be sympathetic to such a movement. Why?
It appears to be simply because the federal government has not been doing their job. When the public sees that elected officials are not doing their job they often roll up their sleeves, adopt an atti-
tude of, “if they can’t or won’t do it, we will.”
The term ‘vigilante’ came into being largely due to the formation of San Francisco’s Committee on Vigilance, formed by citizens in 1851 to combat organized crime. Later, the 1856 Vigilance Movement became even more active. Because the people were so enraged at the lack of government attention to serious
crime and economic problems a group came together and while they got a lot of things done . . . there was also a lot of violence. People died as a result of vigilantes . . . often with the approval of the on-looking public.
There are those political observers who are predicting that the phenomenon of vigilantes will rise again and, further, that violence is so likely to occur that it is no longer a question of if but when.

Let’s take a look at the vigilante movement and see what has happened in the past . . . and what, indeed, we may be facing in the near future.
1856 was perhaps the most exciting year of the era by reason of the flood of crime into the city which soon brought about the resurrection of the Vigilance Committee of 1856, a form of direct action which attracted the attention of the world to a new style of summary justice, the result of extraordinary conditions in San Francisco.
As for local conditions, it is enough to note that in the first ten months of 1855 there were 489 murders in the state and only six legal executions. Stuffed ballot boxes were used to qualify the election of supervisors who did not reside in the districts voted.
In 1853, with the politicans and "Hounds" running the city, the expenditures amounted to $2,646,000. Under a reform management following the work of the

Committee of Vigilance of 1856, the city got along in good shape with the expenditure of $353,000. The population was then estimated at 55,000.
The years 1854 and 1855 were tumultuous at best. No one had time for city business because of the rush to the gold fields. Politics and the government of the city and State were neglected by the residents, and naturally the offices and emoluments fell to the criminal elements who came west. Some of the worst characters driven from New York's Bowery and from Botany Bay, Australia, held office and wallowed in corruption and graft.
Trials in the courts were a farce, and those in power made no pretense of shielding their friends when charged with crimes.
An honest man's vote was worthless at the polls, and ballot box stuffing was openly practiced.

prominent banker in Yerba Buena (then the name of San Francisco), only to lose his fortune later in the local panic of 1854-5, was the man who practically alone started the work of rousing honest residents to the struggle of cleaning out the criminal element in power. At that time the criminal element was closely affiliated with certain influential, wealthy people in sharing the profits of political corruption. On October 8, 1855, he started a newspaper, the Evening Bulletin, which contained 4 pages, 10x15 inches in size.
Shortly thereafter, when Charles Cora, a notorious gambler, shot down U.S. Marshal Richardson, and was formally arrested by his friends in office, King, with his vigorous ardor, declared that if Cora was allowed to escape, the sheriff, David Scannell, must hang. Still later, King took on James P. Casey, one of the city supervisors, and showed that he had been an inmate of Sing Sing Prison in New York. On May 14th Casey shot King as the latter was coming from trigger

Following the shooting, over ten thousand people crowded around his home to hear the latest on his condition. The crowd later retired to the Plaza, and soon a buzz went through the crowd that a Committee of Vigilance was forming. Meanwhile, Casey was being guarded in the jail on Broadway by hundreds of his friends and a company of militia. Friends of King were allowed to enter the jail to assure themselves that the prisoner had not been spirited away.
At nine o’clock the next morning, members of the 1851 Committee of Vigilance began to reform as the 1856 Committee. Among them was William T. Coleman, a prominent member of the old committee. He was urged to start the new movement. Coleman was member No. 1. By the time King died of his gunshot wound on May 20th, the Committee of Vigilance had swelled to 3,500 members ‘Vigilantes . . .’ Cont. on Page 3

under arms. With a cannon to batter down the doors, they then marched to the jail, but Casey was delivered to them after a short protest.
The committee later returned to the jail on Broadway and took Charles Cora to their headquarters. Both men were given advocates to defend them; both were tried before a jury composed of members of the Committee of Vigilance, were convicted and hanged from a platform extended from the second story windows of a nearby fort. An immense crowd filled Sacramento Street between Battery and Davis to watch the double hanging on May 22nd.
Thus the Vigilance Committee continued.
Each Committee of Vigilance formally relinquished power after it decided the city had been "cleaned up."
It has been repeatedly said that crime was reduced by the actions of the vigilance committees for some time afterwards, especially after the 1856 committee.
Switch now Montana:
Another newspaper editor, Robert E. Fisk, of the Helena Daily Herald, evoked the memory of 1864 and called for the organization of a vigilance committee. “There is no disguising the fact,” he wrote, “that Helena at this time is the rendezvous of a score or more of very hard characters—men that have no visible means of a livelihood and that are watching for opportunities to rob and even murder, if necessary, to carry out their infamous purposes. Would it not be a wise precautionary step to invite some of these desperate characters to ‘take a walk,’ or shall we wait for other murders and robberies, or perhaps until they burn the town again?”
In September 1865, a public notice was posted in Virginia City announcing the revival of the vigilance committee there and vowing “to inflict summary judgment upon any
and all malefactors in any case where the civil authorities are unable to enforce the proper penalty of law.”
Lynchings in Virginia City resumed a few days later when two suspected horse thieves, John Morgan and John Jackson, were found one morning dangling from the frame of the corral at a slaughterhouse. By the end of 1865, the death toll from vigilante justice in Montana had reached thirty-five.
Now let’s fast forward to today: How did we get to where we are today? Why are organized groups of civilians stepping in to patrol our borders? Why are tensions rising on both sides of the border?
It’s the first steps taken toward “Vigilance Committees” stepping in to do the work our government has proven it is incapable, or unwilling, to do. The government has not been listening to the people. Or worse, it’s been listening, but ignoring them. As well as the constitution.
First, the federal government has failed to do all it could do, and should do, to curtail illegal immigration. One of the most recent analyses, from the Pew Hispanic Center, suggests that there were 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in March 2011, unchanged from the previous two years and a continuation of the sharp decline in this population since its peak in 2007. Most are Mexicans. The number of Mexicans and their children who moved from the U.S. to Mexico between 2005 and 2010 roughly doubled from the number who had done so in the five-year period a decade before.
There are those who conveniently blame whichever president is currently sitting in the White House. But it is clear that our elected Senators and Representatives have failed miserably to either force the issue upon the administration or to act legislatively to solve the issue. In short, it is the federal government to blame . . . not just one individual. While it is true that the illegal
immigration from Mexico has declined, it remains that we have an estimated 11.1 million illegal aliens amongst us.
Amid this chaos, states, local governments and citizen groups have responded. In Arizona, whose illegal population has grown fastest, a citizen initiative called Proposition 200 passed with a solid majority to place curbs on the distribution of public benefits to illegals. This was back in 2004. Many Hispanic citizens voted for it. In April of 2005 Project Minuteman was formed. It had swollen to more than a thousand volunteers with 30 private planes to monitor activity on the border 24 hours a day, reporting what they find to the Border Patrol.
There are other groups who have organized, all non-governmental organizations made up of civilians who are fed up and are working to get a handle on the illegal immigration issue.
But tensions are growing . . . Indeed, National Guard units have already been fired upon by Mexican smugglers on this side of the border. Our Guard units were neither equipped or tasked to pursue the bandits back across the border. Unfortunately, when bullets fly, people tend to die. Here, from a CNN telecast, aired February 9th, 2007, is the transcript of one such case, which suggests we are getting closer and closer to armed violence on the border:
CASEY WIAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice over): In the Arizona desert near Tucson Thursday, three illegal aliens were killed, three others seriously wounded, and an unknown number apparently kidnapped after they were attacked by gunmen while traveling north from the Mexican border.
JAMES OGDEN, PIMA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPT.: It appears that they were attacked by bandits coming through this area. And right now we have got -Border Patrol is up in the air with their aircraft, trying to see if we have other -- we're worried that we have other --
February 28, 2013 - Page 3
other bodies in this desert area.
WIAN: It's at least the third similar incident in Arizona within two weeks, where armed men have tried to intercept loads of illegal aliens.
OGDEN: With this known being a known corridor, it seems that the human trafficking now is not only because of drug smuggling becoming targets, but also human trafficking is also becoming targets.
WIAN: One Arizona police chief tells CNN intelligence reports are circulating that heavily-armed bandits are patrolling Interstate 10, waiting for smugglers transporting illegal aliens. Once they spot a group, they move in, sometimes dressed as law enforcement, overwhelm the smuggler, and steal his human cargo. Bandits often resort to kidnapping for ransom and even murder.
Arizona's gang and immigration task force, known as GITEM, says the violence is the result of increased federal and local law enforcement pressure on the border. COMMANDER DAN WELLS, GITEM: It's becoming increasingly more difficult for human smugglers to get their loads across the border. So, many of the smuggling organizations have turned to hijacking human loads that have already made it across the border.
WIAN: Wells says his department and the Border Patrol have seized an alarming number of AK-47 and other highpowered rifles recently.
Calls for retribution have already begun. One Phoenix talk show host got the attention of governmental authorities when he suggested illegals be shot when crossing the border.
In April of 2006, talk show host Brian James on radio station KFYI said: "What we'll do is randomly pick one night every week where we will kill whoever crosses the border," he said. "Step over there and you ‘Vigilantes . . .’ Cont. on Page 6

Restaurateurs Charged with Forgery
The owners of a San Marcos restaurant face felony charges accusing them of forging worker’s compensation insurance documents, state authorities said Tuesday.
Rhythm City Grill co-owner John Fletcher Johnson, 48, of San Marcos, has pleaded not guilty in San Diego Superior Court to misdemeanor and felony charges. Co-owner Annette Lucille Thomas, 51, of San Clemente, has also been charged, but she has not yet been arraigned, Deputy District Attorney Pedro Bernal said Tuesday.
According to the California Labor Commissioner’s Office, state investigators looked into the restaurant after receiving an anonymous tip in January 2012 that the owners did not have worker’s compensation insurance.
On Feb. 1, 2012, the state cited the owners and fined them $18,000 for failing to
secure insurance for the restaurant’s 12 employees. The state also ordered them to stop using employees without providing worker’s compensation insurance.
During a follow-up inspection about two weeks later, the owners told state officials they had insurance but were unable to provide proof, according to the Labor Commissioner’s Office.
Authorities said Johnson later provided the state with forged documents stating that the restaurant’s employees had worker’s compensation insurance. Aside from the forgery charges, Johnson is also charged with providing a falsified document to investigators.
Johnson faces a maximum sentence of five years and four months if convicted, and Thomas faces up to four years and eight months if convicted, Bernal said.
Attempts to reach Johnson and Thomas by phone Tuesday afternoon were

Today, his eyesight is back to near normal. The world is a better place for Dr. Patel being here. I can’t imagine not having a man of his brilliance and training not being able to minister to patients. He is a fantastic doctor and I’m pleased the outcome was positive (though not without a great deal of pain and suffering on his part, and that of his family). ••••• Staying in the world of health delivery systems, another good friend, Dr. Mark Cafagna, an outstanding chiropractor in San Marcos, had a birthday yesterday.

Don’t you just hate folks that look eternally young? Dr. Cafagna (the name rhymes, somewhat, with Lasagna . . . that’s why he’s generally known as, simply, Dr. Mark. It’s just easier.

The brewers all agreed it was a good way to test the market.

Letters to the Editor
The Great Wall of China . . Dear Mr. Davis:
This is mainly about the article "They built the Great Wall of China.....". In one word, masterpiece!
Although it was somewhat skewed (as the author himself conceded elsewhere), it was a very well written, captivating, informative and entertaining reading. Mr. D'Amelio deserves big applause for this fine contribution.
Two other recent submissions by Mr. D'Amelio did not do as well. In his commentary in the same issue, Low back pain can be a crippling experience. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive.
And you may not be able to remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.
Life cannot be enjoyed to its fullest if you are suffering with low back pain or sciatica . . . that just will not go away!
Do You Have any of the Following Conditions?
• Sciatica • Lower Back Pain • Spinal Stenosis • Degenerative disc disease • Herniated or Bulging Discs • Facet Syndrome • Failed Back Surgery
Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, your pain may be relieved or eliminated by non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.
Far too many medical doctors believe your options are limited to bed rest, pain pills, exercises, steroid injections, and surgery. They are wrong! That’s because
Mr. D'Amelio stated that he hates "all stereotypes, including those of African-Americans." Next, he "respects all people, no matter what their ancestry." Why then is he fracturing the nation into groups of hyphenated-Americans, which are based solely on their ancestry?
In his defense of the further singled out "ItalianAmerican" faction, Mr. D'Amelio wrote that even Marlon Brando was an "Italian-American." Well, Marlon Brando had no Italian ancestry at all, but even if he had, it would be absurd to champion him as an example of the "good" kind of "ItalianAmericans."

As for that Letter to the Editor about the discrepancy in the Basilone article, Inez Bartlett had good reason to be confused. I goofed on the date. Basilone did not learn of the destination on February 19, 1944, but on February 19, 1945. I'd like to think it was a typo, but I'm not sure. It's good to have readers involved.

"I did not receive a single listener complaint," the station manager, Mary Cantillo added. "We want to know why this has become an issue a month after the fact." She suggested that the issue was raised by an activist group on behalf of illegal immigrants to support their upcoming public rally.
While it would be more desirable to accomplish a solution to the illegal immigration legislatively rather than through snipers or other armed violence . . . some observers feel it is rapidly heading that direction unless someone does something quickly in congress. And if congress does not hear the people’s message loud and clear then congress is to blame for what is likely to happen.

Later, both the House and Senate studied the DREAM Act, but failed to gather enough votes for it to pass. Some allege President Obama bypassed congress and enacted the DREAM Act. That’s not true. No EO exists that deals with “the DREAM Act.” What did happen is that the Obama administration suggested in 2011 adopted a policy of giving “particular care” before deporting students, military veterans and others deemed to be low risk. In 2011, it issued a new policy to allow certain illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to apply for twoyear work permits.
Our entire immigration crisis is due to one fact – that the federal government has failed – even refused - to enforce existing law. Had the federal government done whatever was necessary to uphold the law of the land, none of this would be necessary. Some of the primary issues

addressed in the debate include the argument that states have the authority to enforce immigration law; that states have the inherent authority to arrest and detain, and also to transport to federal custody, aliens who are suspected of having violated federal immigration law — and declares that this authority has never been preempted by a federal law.
Indeed, on April 3, 2002, the Justice Department to the Attorney General of the United States, affirms this right of the state’s authority.
It is also argued that the federal government must take custody of illegal aliens arrested by state or local law enforcement officials — and provide reimbursement for the costs of detaining and transporting the aliens; that all aliens who violate immigration law be entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, greatly increasing the ability of state and local ‘Vigilantes . . . ’ Cont. on Page 7

Only one time did an American president take full control of the illegal immigration situation and do something about it. His name Eisenhower.
Eisenhower called in retired Army General Joseph Swing and gave him his marching orders. “Control the flow of illegal immigrants into this country and deport those illegals still in this country.” It was done.
In 1954 the INS made a concerted effort to control the flows, both ways. The result was called "Operation Wetback" and universally deemed a success. The 1955 INS annual report concluded that "the so-called 'wetback'

A large scale task force operation in the Southwest, working in proximity of the border, accounted for a great majority of apprehensions. This "Special Mobile Force Operation" began in California in the last days of fiscal 1954 and after the backbone of the wetback invasion was broken in California, shifted to South Texas. Mobile task forces were assembled and set into action. Light planes were used in locating illegal aliens and directing ground jeeps to effect apprehensions. Transport planes were used to airlift aliens to staging areas for prompt return to Mexico....
These activities were followed by mopping up operations in the interior and special mobile force units continued to discover illegal aliens who had eluded initial sweeps through such cities as Spokane, Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis. These sweeps removed 20,174 illegal Mexican aliens from industrial jobs.

The incentives for immigration are so strong that it can't be stopped with anything short of military force. Is something like that possible today? It appears so.
David L. Stone, United States Department of State, as part of a Master of Strategic Studies Degree at The US Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, researched and wrote a paper dealing with “Sealing the Border with Mexico: A Military Option.”
It was a feasibility study of deploying the U. S. Army, Marines, or National Guard on the U.S. border with Mexico. The question was whether such a deployment could effectively deter the smuggling of illegal narcotics and immigrants. Is this a threat that can be deterred by military means as opposed to more traditional law-enforcement methods carried out by civilian agencies? The current state of border affairs does not speak well for the capacity of the civilian law enforcement agencies to deal effectively with the problem.

Despite their best efforts, and despite significant increases in personnel and resources, it is not likely that the civilian agencies, including the U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, Customs, and others which recently joined together to form the Department of Homeland Security, can realistically do more than already achieved to stem the flow of narcotics and illegal aliens into the country from Mexico. According to Jeffrey Passel, there is substantial evidence that INS enforcement activities do virtually nothing to deter illegal entry across the Mexican border. There is also some question about the seriousness of the law enforcement agencies to deal with the illegal immigration problem and by implication with the potential terrorist threats posed thereby. In regards to illegal narcotics smuggling, the General Accounting Office reported to Congress that “U.S. and

Adult Orthodontics-Six Month Smile System
Short Term Orthodontics is a powerful new approach for correcting dental tooth misalignment in adults. It offers a cosmetic solution for those of us “stuck” with unattractive smiles who don’t want to go through “Comprehensive Orthodontics. Short Term Orthodontics is NOT a replacement for traditional comprehensive orthodontics, but rather an orthodontic alternative for the vast majority of adults who want to improve
The Six Month Smiles System allows your dentist a more controlled and efficient method for moving your teeth into their proper position compared to aligners. When using aligners your teeth can fail to “track” properly into position and this can be difficult to correct, where it is much easier to correct with the Short Term Orthodontic approach. When using aligners the dentist’s lab fees are higher and your length of treatment time is much longer, as a patient. The Six Month Smiles System costs you less and you can be done in somewhere between a half to a third of the time compared to Invisalign or other aligner systems.
Six Month Smiles System is viewed as a more conservative alternative to either veneers, crowns or bridges. Rather than removing tooth structure and/or bonding porcelain, our patient’s natural teeth are safely moved to more appropriate positions to
give our patients a pleasing smile. This way the precious enamel of your teeth can often be protected. Of course, there are times where a “combined treatment” approach is used, where we move the teeth into their proper position while “adjusting” small areas of enamel which may be preventing final positioning of a tooth.
Six Month Smiles does not focus on those patients seeking an “ideal’ posterior bite relationship. These patients need comprehensive orthodontics. The goal of our Six Month Smile System is to give the patient an attractive smile in a less expensive, shorter period of time than traditional comprehensive orthodontics or using aligners.
Our secondary goal is to improve the bite relationship as much as possible during treatment.
Is Short Term Orthodontics (STO) “Six Month Smiles System” for you? If you’ve been unhappy with your smile because you’ve got spaces between your teeth, have a deep bite, have crowded or crocked teeth, show too much gum or too little gum, have chipped teeth, have tipped teeth, etc., the best thing you can do is schedule an appointment with us for a consultation.

Escondido Education Foundation Needs Your Help With a New Program
Federal and state funding for public schools has been decreasing for six years straight, while requirements keep increasing. In 2004, local community folks started a foundation in Escondido to raise funds for public elementary and middle schools. Katie Ragazzi was recruited in 2009 as Executive Director of the Escondido Education Foundation (EEF). It has been reorganized completely under her leadership and has made great strides in helping the individual schools with many innovative projects. Recognizing that philanthropy in Escondido has really changed
Offer expires 3/31/13
Here’s what is happening with the new program, and how you can be involved!
This spring the EEF is trying something totally new ~~ they will only ask for money this fiscal year between March 1 and May 1, 2013. Called the “50/50 Together” campaign, they will be raising funds through a special website called Razoo and cash donations at all 23 schools in the district, as well as typical channels like mailings and emails.

While participation is completely voluntary at all schools, for the first time ever, the EEF is inviting “everyone in the community” to contribute to our town’s public elementary and middle schools during these two months.
These funds do NOT support general operations of the schools or school district. Fifty percent (50%) of all funds raised
by or for any school will go directly to that school in a check on May 31, 2013. The other 50% of all funds raised by or for any school, and all other funds the Foundation can raise, will go directly to ANOTHER benefit to the schools; one of which is the fantastic “Innovation Awards,” competitive grants that enable schools to accomplish really great projects they would not be able to do otherwise, and for specific programs and projects for the children throughout the year. The EEF identifies and raises funds for programs that are seen as most effective and exciting for the students.
There is more to tell, but you can see how helpful it is for more people to know about this worthy cause and this unique, exciting opportunity.
On one level, everyone knows how important early education is . . . and how closely good schools are connected to property values and other desirable features in a community . . . so here is the chance for people to step up, even just a little.

We had at least 10 loving individuals and/or families contact us and were able to find them a ‘forever home.’ Meanwhile, we’ve referred those loving individuals to our Bruce Krider, head honcho of The Puppy Coalition, as well as other rescue organizations so that we might find ‘forever homes’ for yet more needy pups and dogs.

Mexican (drug) interdiction efforts have had little, if any, impact on the overall flow of drugs through Mexico into the United States.” Despite increased expenditures to the War on Drugs effort, interdiction of imported drugs, particularly marijuana and cocaine, appears to be relatively ineffective, as the flow of cocaine imports increases at ever lower prices. The image of the U.S.-Mexico border region is that of a vulnerable zone in urgent need of numerous, serious security measures to repel an “invasion” of “illegal aliensm,” to win the War on Drugs, and to counter the threat of terrorism. Many different voices from different sectors of the political, business and private community have called publicly for the deployment of the U.S. Army or other military units on the border with Mexico to stem the tide of illicit drugs and illegal aliens ‘Vigilantes . . . ’ Cont. on Page 11

There are several reasons why you might bring your PC in to our shop. Often it’s because the PC isn’t working properly. Maybe it’s slow, won’t go on the WWW, can’t access some files, makes weird noise, does goofy things or won’t boot up at all. You ask: Can you make it go faster? Can you fix it? How much will it cost?

However, as a result of a recent court decision, the FTB not only decided to eliminate this tax break, but it also announced the tax would be reinstated retroactively!

Whatever the reason, when you bring your desktop or laptop in, we stop what we’re doing, plug it in, boot it up and fill out a checklist on its specs and running condition.

Usually by this time we can tell you how much it would cost to fix it, how much it’s worth and what we would give as a trade in on a brand new PC.
Perhaps you decide to consider buying a new notebook or desktop PC.

‘Vigilantes . . . ’ Cont. from Page 10 information for any job they have and provide that information to the government.
They'll have very limited access to welfare programs. In short, they'll be expected to support themselves like every other immigrant who comes here legally has to do.
Two tracks of legal immigration should be adopted, an irrevocable path to citizenship and a guest worker program. Guest workers will be allowed to work for 10 years and have no eligibility for welfare. The path to citizenship will require a renunciation of Mexican (or other relevant nation's) citizenship and classes in English will be required. Guest workers cannot be hired if there are willing and capable legal residents or citizens applying to do the work.
Presently, there is a lot of talk within Congress about Immigration Reform. We’ll believe it when we see it.
There appears to be a great deal of smoke and mirrors, very little of substance and even less that will generate bipartisan support.
Congress is broken. Deals can no longer get done. We are debating how our economic world will come to an end if sequestration goes through. Really?
The United States of America can’t handle a 2 to 3% reduction in spending? Get real.
If we were talking a 20-30% cut in spending, maybe there’d be cause for alarm. But politicians being politicians they are screaming like Chicken Little that the sky is falling.
Because of a 2-3% decrease in spending.
Bottom Line: We have an absence of leadership . . . not only at the presidential level but, more often, at the federal legislative level. The inability of Congress to enact meaningful legislation
to address the issue of illegal immigration, the debt, the over-all economic meltdown, suggests to more and more frustrated citizens that it is time to think about organizing meaningful “vigilance committees” and begin taking action against those legislators who do not do their jobs (and are paid handsomely for it).
A nationally organized vigilance committee could mobilize for a massive rally in Washington, D. C., while Congress is in session, and demonstrate the anger the nation holds against Congress for not doing their jobs; and to clearly demonstrate that Congress needs to get its act together and get work done or, it, Congress, will soon be out of a job. The second part of the strategy is to take strong and decisive political action at the ballot box. Those legislators who have not done their jobs should be turned out of office and fresh new blood brought in. The third part of the strategy, if the first two don’t work, is to watch, with sadness, the creation of a militant arm of the modern day “Vigilantes.”
History has shown that when government pushes the people to the point they form vigilante committees and become active vigilantes, violence follows.
People die. Usually those who deserve to die . . . but sometimes innocents get caught up.
In this scenario we are looking at the beginnings of another Civil War in America. Americans shooting other Americans. I don’t want to see that happen. No one I know does. But the clock is ticking.
The governmental legislators, both federal, state, county and city, need to listen. And act. Soon.
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Finally, in Westby, Wisconsin, a Norwegian was located who had the right blood type. The Norwegian, whose name was Ole, willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent Ole, as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, a pile of diamonds and several million U.S. dollars.
Many days later, once again the Arab had to go through some corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned Ole who was more than happy to donate his blood again.
After the second surgery, the Arab sent Ole a thank-you card and five pounds of lutefisk. Ole was shocked that this time the Arab did not reciprocate with a new car, diamonds, and money.
He phoned the Arab and said, 'I thought dat you vould be yenerous again, and dat you vould give me anudder BMdubleU and diamonds and money. But you only gave me a tank-you card and some lutefisk!' To this the Arab replied, 'Ya, but now I haf Norvegian blood in my veins so I gotta tink tvice before I spend my money.'
See you again next week with even more Daily Chuckles! Meanwhile, behave yourselves and ‘ack respeccable!’

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF EDITH HANSEN COLLISTER Case No. 37-2012-00152717PR-PW-CTL To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate or both, of Edith Collister, AKA Edith Hansen Collister, AKA Edith Hansen. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Paul J. Hansen in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1409 FOURTH AVENUE, SAN DIEGO, CA. 92102, CENTRAL BRANCH. The Petition for Probate requests that Paul J. Hansen be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The peition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petitions and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: MAR 19, 2013 Time: 11:00 a.m. Dept: PC-1 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under Section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your right as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for the Petitioner: PAUL J. HANSEN 542 Taylor St. Vista, CA. 92084 760.940.0116 cel 760.716.6677 2/14, 2/21 & 2/28/2013
