"Gun" Letter from Congress released

Jobs vs. Work

The lamestream media told you:

The government's ambitious plans for job creation haven't worked out as planned. But it's not the fault of the man in the White House who is trying as hard as he can to create jobs. It's the fault of the other party and problems created before he took control of the office. Jobs are down, the economy is down, you're down, future prospects are down, down, down. We'll continue to create jobs, for the good of the country and the economy. Have a nice day.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Jobs vs. Work -- The Big Government Lie

Why can't government create jobs, really?

This non-gun issue is critically important.

The "news" media hasn't got a clue.

by Alan Korwin
The Uninvited Ombudsman

The phrase create jobs is constantly in the headlines these days.
Candidates and the man in the White House seem to be all about creating jobs.

This simple phrase "create jobs" can easily mislead you.

Let me explain:

Why does government constantly fail to create jobs? Well --
Just separate the idea of “jobs” and “work” and you'll see.
Government can't create jobs.

JOBS are what you get when you invent or develop a product or service,
create demand and fill it. Jobs are a way to make money.

WORK is what you get when you take taxes from people who make money,
and give it to other people to do tasks you define. Work is a way to spend money.

Jobs come from the private sector.
Work comes from the government sector.

Government by its very nature cannot create jobs.
An energetic free public cannot help but create jobs.

Jobs create wealth.
Work consumes wealth.

Jobs are self perpetuating.
Work is finite.

National Training Week

The lamestream media told you:


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

National Training Week is when everyone is encouraged to go to the range and practice during 4th of July week (July 4 - 11). "Celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks, firearms and freedom."

Wouldn't it be nice if, as a special project, your own local shooting ranges offered one-hour handgun rentals for free, so you could try out new guns?

Wouldn't the week of Independence Day be a nice time to do that? Sort of, celebrate your freedom with fireworks and firearms for the 4th of July. Ranges nationwide could make the offer, throw in special classes even for newcomers, and America would be better for it.

I'm trying to help make that happen.
We've been working this for four years now.
The ranges that have participated had good results,
new business, revenue, new customers.
You can help me make it happen.

Take a look at the plans for National Training Week, when everyone is encouraged to go to the range and practice during 4th of July week (July 4 - 11). "Celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks, firearms and freedom."

Let my good friend Bill at the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) know that you support the idea of National Training Week. Ask them to support it too.

Pakistani Aid Unabated

The lamestream media told you:

The Associated Press reported on Friday that U.S. Congress has voted to withhold $33 million in aid to Pakistan, $1M for each year of a prison sentence handed to a Pakistani doctor who helped the U.S. locate Osama bin Laden. Congress was reportedly outraged at the punishment, and has been increasingly frustrated by Pakistani support for al-Qaeda and terrorism. The vote of the Senate Appropriations Committee was unanimous, 30-0.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Pakistan receives about $800 million each year from Congress, a number not reported by the AP. The cash is taken from people who earned it, known as U.S. taxpayers. Claims that the phony puffed-chest posturing by the deceitful lying snakes in Congress was just a show for the lapdog Associated Press and other "news" organizations could not be confirmed at press time.

It should be noted that the Committee's recommendations do not cut the funding, as the AP's headline misleadingly suggests. The recommendation MAY be voted on by Congress, sometime this summer, there's apparently no rush. Until then, and maybe after then, the cash continues to flow. The AP story, which gave percentages but not total numbers, failed to mention that the proposed "slash" (their word) to the aid is a huge 4% of the total cash giveaway, less than sales tax in most states.

Security Rules Ignored

The lamestream media told you:

The millions of students who take the SAT or ACT each year will have to submit photos of themselves when they sign up for the college-entrance exams, under a host of new security measures announced Tuesday in the aftermath of a major cheating scandal on Long Island.

Students have long been required to show identification when they arrive for one of the tests. Under the new rules, they will have to submit head shots of themselves in advance with their test application. A copy of the photo will be printed on the admission ticket mailed to each student and will also appear on the test-site roster. "(School administrators are) going to be able to compare the photo and the person who showed up and say that's either John Doe or that's not John Doe. They didn't have the ability to do that before," the district attorney said.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

College students will need better ID to take exams than people living in America will need to vote for president of the United States or any other elected office, if certain powerful lobbying groups have their way. Student IDs for exams is already a done deal.

Many democrats and illegal-alien support groups are fighting against common-sense measures to require people to identify themselves when they go to polls to vote. Only citizens are supposed to vote in elections, but it has been shown that illegal aliens and others, including dogs and the dead, are often registered to vote, and sometimes do, sometimes more than once per election.

Vote fraud happens at three steps in the political process. First there's registration, where ineligibles are sometimes registered, or people register in multiple districts. Second, at the polls themselves, ineligibles, illegals, unregistereds and multiple voters can turn up and cast ballots without ID. Finally, during the counting process, numerous problems have been detected with everything from dimpled chads, to electronic-device malfunctions or malfeasance, lost ballot boxes, and deliberate chicanery in the counting process.

The powerful illegal-alien lobby claims that requiring positive ID, or any ID, places an unfair burden on disadvantaged minorities, people of color, underrepresented masses, the poor, welfare cases, the illiterate and the proletariat. Requiring a person to be who they say they are when they vote, will disenfranchise a political underclass, generally supporters of welfare democrats.

Balancing this notion is the controversial movement to restrict voting to only people who pay taxes, since it is their money that hangs in the balance and runs government. People who pay nothing and are "free riders" on the system, should be limited in what they can do to tip the system to their benefit.

A more dramatic and more controversial idea is floating to limit voting to people who understand politics and know what's going on. That, of course, would limit voting to exactly no one, since, despite all the bluster, no one ever really knows what's really going on, not even the president or the smartest person on the planet.

Black Teenage Murderer

The lamestream media told you:

"AP, SARASOTA, Fla. 3/28/12 - A Florida teenager received a life sentence Wednesday after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two young British tourists last April, a case that generated blaring tabloid headlines in the U.K. press.

"The two men were vacationing in Sarasota and spent an evening drinking when they got lost and walked into a housing project where Shawn Tyson lived. Details of their deaths have gripped the British news media. Tabloids there have written stories saying the men were 'slaughtered' in a Florida 'ghetto.' "  The U.S. "news" media have refused to call a ghetto a ghetto in a long long time, according to sources.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In a stunning coincidence, two 17-year-old black Florida teenagers have been involved in homicides. "What are the chances of that," asked one observer, who denied racially profiling the story. Even more remarkable, is that one teenager got enormous press in England for murdering two British tourists, but got almost no attention here.

The other black teenager, six-foot-two-inch varsity-football-player Trayvon Martin, who was killed in what may have been a successful self defense against a failed felony assault on a stranger, has dominated U.S. news domestically for months and is likely to continue doing so.

It was unclear at press time why a black teenage murderer, who got no help from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, would get scant press coverage, when a dead black teenager who looked angelic in his baby pictures, would get so much more attention.

Racist Presidential Campaign

The lamestream media told you:

"JACKSONVILLE, Fla. A billionaire who considered a plan to resurrect incendiary comments by President Barack Obama's former pastor shelved the idea Thursday after Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney denounced the tactic that would have drawn the issue of race into the presidential campaign," according to the Associated Press, in a story with no byline.

The only significant issues in the upcoming presidential campaign are the economy, jobs, the economy, foreign affairs, and the economy.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

How can any conscious person think that race is not an issue in the upcoming election? Yet the "news" media is falling into lock step behind the politically correct lie that race is not an issue.

The hypocrisy will be front and center as reports for the next 23 weeks will analyze how many blacks are voting for the black or partially black incumbent. Race is a dominant issue, but in classic naked-emperor style, every reporter and editor will see it and claim it does not exist, or charge "racism" to anyone who can see that it is and dares to say so. People will vote based on race on both sides of this black-and-white divide.

The current effort at race denial by adamant racists concerns supreme racist and hate monger Jeremiah Wright, who for 20 years preached hate and race baiting to a nearly segregated congregation including the man now in the White House. In a stunning denial of reality, Mr. Obama claims he never noticed the hate spewing forth from this horrid little man of the so-called "black liberation theology," an America-hating screed dedicated to "destroying the white enemy." Race is not an issue?

Now, in a social-pressure tactic, all the lamestream "news" media has declared that coverage of this hateful two frickin decades in Mr. Obama's career, "going too far," beyond the pale, and no longer an issue. This has forced one concerned citizen to not air commercials reminding the public of what Obama brought to the election. It is hidden and dismissed by the lamestreamers, and now being suppressed by the entire news corps. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, two of America's most overt and high-profile racists, agree with the lamestream on this point.

Hiding communist China

The lamestream media told you:

Chinese activist Chen arrives in NY.

The Washington Post has reported that Chinese dissident Chen has arrived in New York with his wife and two children. How he managed to escape from China, after seven years of house arrest is unclear, but Chinese and American diplomats worked behind the scenes to get him admitted to the U.S., and thus defuse a potentially difficult diplomatic situation.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Not a single word in the lengthy Washington Compost story mentioned why Chen was under arrest in communist China. The communist Chinese dictatorship remains a tyrannical regime with virtually no recognition of human rights.

Chen had campaigned, among other things, against forced abortions under the communist dictatorship's family-size-management policies. A self-taught lawyer, he was banned from practicing law.

Detractors of America's greatness, which includes the communist Chinese and all too often the Washington Compost itself, failed to mention why the U.S. is the last best hope for people escaping from tyranny and oppression because, with all our faults, we remain the linchpin of freedom for the entire planet.

His flight here was paid for by incredibly generous U.S. taxpayers, without their knowledge, through the U.S. State Dept. The check for his other expenses, like housing, food, clothing, and college tuition (he plans to study law at NYU), are likely to be picked up by the same people, us. You voted for that, didn't you?

In an unrelated story not mentioned by the Compost, a new t-shirt being marketed by the communist front organization, the "occupy" private property combine, features the friendly expression, "You say 'commie' like it's a bad thing." Various branches of the active communist parties in the U.S. brazenly set up tables at "occupy" insurgencies nationwide, giving out literature and soliciting converts.

Communists are selling this t-shirt design
at "occupy" rallies and political meetings.
If you think we beat the commies, think again.

Chen expressed concern that he still has relatives held by the chicoms, and the commie reds chained one of his relatives to a chair for three days, according to the Compost, in an effort to find out how he escaped from house arrest. His "escape" was actually a matter of getting into the highly fortified U.S. Embassy in red China. His crimes basically amounted to campaigning for increases in freedom, and disrupting traffic, according to official sources.

Why Chen did not make a break for the embassies of Niger, Nigeria, Zambia, Congo, Syria, Russia, Norway or 187 other countries remained unclear at press time. The "news" media could not be reached for comment.

The massive lamestream media's current trend of treating the communist dictatorship in China as just another government (the NY Times calls it simply "a one-party system") confound observers, who note that the lamestream does tend to lean well to the left themselves (where communism represents the extreme in that direction).

Americans who thought we defeated communism with the fall of the U.S.S.R. and the Berlin wall, were disappointed to learn that communist Cuba, communist China, communist North Korea, four nations in South America, Laos and Vietnam, scores of others with avowed communist rulers or communism/socialism imbedded in their very constitutions (, and communists or marxists within our own government are working hard to establish communism as the globally dominant force on Earth for the betterment of humanity and the children. And here you thought republican/democrat bickering and the muslims posed the great challenges to freedom...

"Birther" is an "N" word

The lamestream media told you:

The "birthers" are at it again, pressing this non-existent issue that has already been firmly settled beyond any question or doubt. A "birther" sheriff in Arizona, with the help of a "birther" Secretary of State there are trying to revive the "birther" issue to attack our beloved president.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

"Birther" is an "N" word

Dear Editor,
[permission to forward this to editors in your hometown granted]

"Birther," used by the media with impunity, is a derogatory slur, the equivalent of the "N" word used for another group to cast them as sub human.

You apply this new "N" word to a huge group of politically active Americans who've raised legitimate questions on a legitimate topic.

These Americans remember Sen. McCain was grilled by a Senate committee over the same issue -- eligibility. The man currently in the White House, for reasons that remain unclear to this day, avoided such reasonable scrutiny. These people ask, "Why?"

These citizens noticed that when Obama refused -- flat-out refused -- to release relevant documents you let him slide. These people noticed that when papers finally emerged, after unconscionable delays, irregularities were so great even amateur sleuths could spot them. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office found remarkable inconsistencies that point to deliberate fraud.

To demean and ridicule such socially conscious, politically active Americans with their own "N" word violates journalism's codes of ethics (AP, NY Times, SPJ) that require you not only to be unbiased, but to avoid even an appearance of bias. Inflammatory use of this offensive denigrating smear and "birther bashing" announces your prejudice loudly. At least you make that clear.
