Foreword :
I am not a politician, I am a statesman. And I discipline myself to remain as such.
-Earl R. Lofland

The region is getting another economic shot to the gut this morning as Valero Energy announced they will
permanently shut down their refinery in Delaware City, Del.

This is more evidence that others like myself have been stressing. The stimulus Bill would not save or create
jobs. It is also evidence that confirms what others like myself have been stating as well. Unemployment rates
will be escalating and not decreasing due to the way the problem is being handled.

The stimulus money did nothing but cause more problems. More proof many elected officials should be held
accountable for dereliction of their duties

Two other  articles that I am going to urge everyone to pay close attention to.
Army lacks guidelines to deal with jihadists in ranks - Washington Times

Bush aide urges weapons ban to slow Mexican drug war - Washington Times

I find the first article on the Military lacking guidelines for Jihadists shows proof Big Government agendas that
members of the Democratic Caucus as well as the Republican Caucus are equally to blame.

According to Retired Army Gen. John M. Keane The Army lacks guidelines on how to deal with Islamic
jihadism. "Clearly we don't have specific guidelines in dealing with jihadist extremists,"

In the aftermath of the attacks that led the United States Government to enact the Dept of Homeland Security
and passed the Patriot Acts.  General Keanes Statements are proof dereliction of duties on behalf of many
members of Congress as well as all those who have been in charge of the DHS since it was created has

DHS was established to allow ALL the government agencies to have more access to information that would
prevent such attacks as took place on Sept 11.  2001 from ever happening again. We seen this failed with the
proof from the attack on Unarmed Military troops at Fort Hood .

Just a note of reminders. Before 1947 all intelligence obtained for the US Government was done through the
Department of Army and the Department of Navy.

Radical Islamic ideals being a national threat are not new to the United States of America. It hs has been a
problem for centuries.

The United States Marine Corps hymn proves  Jihad has happened even as far back as the turn of the
century. The 19 th Century. (1801-1805 and 1815).The Barbary Wars.
Muslim Pirates were capturing American vessels,selling the crew members on the slave market who did not
convert to the Muslim Faith or ransomed the crew members back to the US.  

It is important to note: Those actions did not urge the US Government to ban any firearms being sold in the
United States. It actually encouraged  US Citizens to own firearms!.

I did not support Mr Biden and his Presidential Campaign, I didn't support Mr McCain, I didn't support Mr Geo.
W. Bush, Nor did I support Mr Kerry.  It was not because of the party they belonged to. It was due to knowing
what their agenda was.I paid attention to what they did during their political Careers in Washington.

I will not chastise anyone unless I am sure that there are alternatives to how to deal with the problem.

1 Anyone of the members of the US Senate and House of Representatives who has voted for the Patriot Act
should be seriously considered to be voted out of office..

Discipline; Always Maintain Discipline. The lack of Disciple causes mistakes. Mistakes gets a permanent visit

Earl Lofland For United States Congress

I have always supported measures and principles and not men.
- Davey Crockett

The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it
from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out
of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is
above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.
