An Open Letter to Peaceful Islamists

Dear Peaceful Islamist,

I an writing you today because the human race needs your help. You are in a unique position to save the lives of thousands upon thousands of people. You see, there are Islamists, unlike yourself, that have chosen the path of violence and death. They do not care who they kill. Every infidel, like myself, is a victory and every Islamist, like you, becomes a martyr in a jihad you do not believe in.

Now you may be asking yourself, "why should I stand up against my own brothers, my Imam even, to protect infidels, the non-believers?" Well, it is because with every "non-believer" your brother kills it makes another bunch of non-believers mad enough to kill an islamist and they can't tell the violent ones from the peaceful ones. The ones that don't turn to violence against you will forever be jaded against you. They will see you in the same light as they see those that have twisted the word of Mohammed to suit their own purpose. They'll see you as no more deserving than them because you had the opportunity to do good but did not act from your cowardice. The longer things continue the worse it will become. The more jaded against you people will become.

So here is where I ask the favor. This will be the hardest thing for you to do. It is you who must stop the killing. It is you who must become active and speak out against the bombings, the terrorism. It is you who must find the courage to speak out against your Imam that threatens the lives of others. And if you can't convince them not to kill it is you who must turn in your own brother.

It is no simple favor that I ask but please hear me through. Would a true borther put you in that situation? Would he force you to choose between his misguided actions or the lives of others? I say to you that his is not your brother. He becomes the serpent who does nothing but evil. He laughs at you for your weakness and flaunts it every moment he plans to strike out. He means to make you impotent. He has already shunned you as his brother.

Some may ask me why I chose to speak to you this way. Why do you even ask people to do something so difficult? I say it because if I can help one person make a decision that helps other than hurts it is worth a thousand letters. If I can convince one person to stop an act of violent jihad then whatever the price it will be worth it. I ask you, dear peaceful Islamist, please, be that person who makes a difference. Be the one that helps your true peaceful brothers.

An Immigration Bill That Works

Raven over at And Rightly So just got me riled up on immigration. There are so many great ideas on the subject that are being blatantly ignored by anybody who's ever touched a lobbyist. Let me post a few. Feel free to throw in your one cent after taxes. I'll add your ideas to the list and we can make our own little immigration bill, right here.

1. A government funded and advertised hotline to report businesses that use illegal aliens.

2. An excalating, mandatory fine rate for businesses that hire illegals:
- 1st: $10,000 fine
- 2nd: $50,000 fine and 30 days in jail for the establishment owner
- 3rd: $100,000 fine, 1 year in jail and a revocation of the business license

3. build the damned fence. Stop saying it's coming and do it.

4. Escalate the real-ID act. Ensure no illegal can ever get one. Make it biometric enabled. Make businesses use it exclusively.

5. Reduce the time required (and cost required) to obtain a "green card".

6. Create a functional "Workfare" program. (It's viable if done right. If you need more of an explanation just let me know in comments.)

7. Greatly increase the ammount of "legal" immigrants allowed from bordering countries, mainly Mexico.

8. Require "real-ID" when sending money outside of the country.

9. U.S. Military reservist authorization for AT time (Your two weeks a year) to be in support of the border patrol.

10. Create and enforce (aka, kick them out when done) a guest worker program with full documentation.
10a. Make it so employers can pay people minimum wage. No extra crap for anything. The way it stands now they have to pay for their housing and other stuff.

11. Welfare, medicare, food stamps or any other charitable government services shall not be provided to non-U.S. citizens with the following exceptions:

a. The individual has been working legally and paying taxes for greater than one
year. The individual also needs to have maintained residence in the U.S. for
greater than one year with only USCIS authorized breaks in residency for not
more than two weeks within the afforementioned one contiguous year.
Individuals meeting these requirements will be considered for charitable
government services at the single with no dependencies rate unless dependents
are U.S. citizens, met the charitable government services requirements
themselves or lived legally and contiguously in the U.S. for no less than five
b. Have been granted assylum from their country in the U.S. and would
not normally be considered criminals in the U.S. if they had done the same
things here as they had done abroad.
c. Special circumstances not previously
mentioned and on a case by case basis. Authorization for an individual can only
be given by the President, Governors, Senators, Congresspersons and the supreme
court. Authorization of an individual in a certain circumstance does not set
president for future authorizations.

12. resereved.

13. resereved.

14. resereved.

15. resereved.

Okay, so yeah. This is a pet peave of mine. If you can throw more on the list by all means let me know what you have.

Pornographers Makes the Best Blog

At least that's what it looks like over at TTLB. It seems that a porn site has somehow hijacked (no pun intended) the oldest ranking system for blogs. I could go into some diatribe about how porn is taking over the internet but that would be anoying. I'm not holier than thou. I like boobies and stuff. The thing that bothers me is the exploiting of the system to get the site there.

I guess we should all spam N.Z.Bear about his broken system.

What's in a name?

Actually there's a lot in a name. It tells people who you are and what you're about. This holds true especially for anything on the internet. Create a name too obscure or spelled wrong and nobody will find you. Mislead people with your name and you'll attract the wrong type of web browsers. A name is important.

Some of you already know me by my real name. I don't want to do that any time soon. I do, however, want to have another name that can symbolize what I'm about without sounding too corny. Currently I'm going by Romulus, but that needs to change. Greek and Roman god names have been primarily dominated by liberal leaning bloggers. Using a name like billy bob or jed clampet or something equally "redneck" would classify me as conservative. I need a fair name for someone who does his best to take both sides of an issue and come to a viable conclusion....and I haven't a clue what that name would be.

So I'm asking you, my friends, to come up with a good pseudoname for me. There are no rules, I just need a name. Thank you for your support.

Like a Phoenix from the ashes, blah, blah, blah....

I quit my old blog. I'm making a new one. There's too much baggage at the old place and it isn't really me anymore. No, I'm not going to link to it. That would kind of defeat the purpose of starting a new blog.

About me:

I've always been politically minded but I do my best not to fall into any one camp. Walking lock-step behind anyone reminds me of lemmings running off a cliff. While I have no fear of heights I'm not too fond of the sudden stop at the bottom. So I choose to make my own mind up about things. Sometimes they're left, other times their right, frequently they'll make you think, "What orifice did he pull that idea out of?"

Why "Periodically Correct"? Well, I'm not always right. Nobody's always right. Anybody who tells you that is a liar and a braggart...unless he's God. There also the part where I'll just disappear off the face of the earth for a while. It will happen. Don't worry about it. Just keep me on the list of people you stroll by and I'll say something eventually. I refuse to follow the "three posts a day" rule. I'm not a slave. I might skip whole weeks at a time! It all depends on my personal schedule and if I have something I need to get off my chest.

So take your shoes off. Stay a while. Let me put up some decorations on these plain white walls and unpack. You're in for some interesting times.
