Still the United States of America?
Commentary by Donald Hank
On the campaign trail, Barack Obama once intoned “this will always be the United States of America.”
But will it?

China to the world: clean up after me
China relegates the US to bottom floor, occupies penthouse
China recently became a member of the G20 and lost no time in taking over, demanding that other, richer, countries clean up her environment.
Let me give you some background here.
The first time I visited Hong Kong, I stayed in a rundown hotel near the outskirts of the town.
As soon as I had settled into my room, I looked out the window and saw a strange sight. Off a few thousand yards, situated on a hillside, was an apartment or condo complex with about 6 stories, each of which had an awning, all except the top story, which was a penthouse. Each of the awnings was totally covered with garbage of various kinds, including ordinary kitchen refuse.
I had spent time in Mainland China and had lived and studied for years in Taiwan, all places where humans and filth coexist peacefully under the strangest conditions. But I had never seen anything like this.
I found a few workers downstairs and asked them why each of these awnings was so full of garbage. I was sure they would be able to give me an explanation.
Get ready now. The following is a rough translation of what their spokesman said, with a big smile on his face:
Here in this part of China every person who lives above someone else has tossing rights to any roof below him. The person on the first floor has to put up with garbage from any other floor that might fall on his porch roof. The closer you are to the top, the less garbage you have to put up with. They guy on top is king! Nobody can throw garbage on him. So that is why everyone wants to live on the top floor.
Get ready, America, for your new king! You have granted China tossing rights over you, and she is a very, very messy neighbor – or maybe I should say, bed partner.

Homosexual activism reaches Biblical proportions
Below are the words of a radical homosexual activist to Linda Harvey, a godly woman who has thus far stood almost alone against the homosexual agenda. This man, like legions of his cohorts, thinks orthodox Christians are judgmental and should be punished by homosexual activists. here is his stern warning:
“You are very much being watched! All you jeebus-lovin-christers rights will slowly be taken away one by one the more you try to press your beliefs down our throats. Beware. We are everywhere and you will never know it. Watch your mouth. Watch your actions. We are watching them my friend and we are many and we are rich and we are very well educated and very powerful. …”
Now if you think this sort of threat by homosexuals is a new phenomenon, know that there is nothing new under the sun. Approximately 2,000 B.C., as Lot was preparing a meal for some heavenly visitors in a house just outside the city of Sodom, some men from this town surrounded the house and said “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out so that we may have sex with them.”
Lot pleaded with them not to “do this wicked thing,” but they replied:
“Get out of our way. This fellow came here as an alien and how he wants to play the judge,” and then threatened Lot with harm: “We’ll treat you worse than them!”
You see? According to their way of thinking, the activists of Sodom had a right to have sex with anyone, even someone who did not want to have sex with them. And when a godly man defended the rights of his visitors to be left unmolested, the Sodomites were enraged and threatened him.
Nothing has changed since then. There was a brief interlude of some 1800 years when Christianity held sway in Europe, then briefly in the USA, where Christians like William Penn, the Quakers, Puritans, Anabaptists and many others came to escape from European wickedness.
But now, scarcely 300 years after they came to this safe haven, it is in the hands of the ones they were trying to escape.
Now where do we go?
Not long ago, a pastor in my home town, a sweet mild mannered man, preached from Romans 1, quoting Paul’s unflattering words about homosexual behavior.
Shortly thereafter, his home burned to the ground. Coincidence perhaps?

Olavo de Carvalho: Ask John McCain
The eminent Brazilian columnist Olavo de Carvalho, who escaped a Latin tyrant by coming to this country, and for whom present-day America is therefore déjà vu, has been contacting the news media with his fervent plea to ask John McCain why he refused to ask tough questions of Obama about his background. De Carvalho says this kind of non-reaction by McCain and the press is exactly what preceded the rise of the far-left Lula to power in his country. So far Mr. de Carvalho has been stonewalled, just like he had been back home. One well-known US press representative who has been involved in government work that should have put him in a position to evaluate the precariousness of our position, wrote back poo-pooing his message and telling him this story about Obama’s lack of proper birth certificate is all just hype.
The real story here is the complicity of the news media, which stands like a phalanx behind the cover-up of a gigantic story of an apparent illegal alien usurping the presidency and refusing to produce the documents produced by every other president since the founding of this Republic.
Man sues feds to stop bailout
Larry Baumgarner, from Egg Harbor, NJ, is suing to stop the bailout.
Larry contacted Laigle’s a while back with the story and we decided to take a wait-and-see approach. Sure enough, he has filed his suit. Larry writes:
Hello Laigle’s Forum,
Thought you’d like this. The response to my injunction to stop the bailout has been overwhelming. The publishing of the article in the Atlantic City Press was accompanied by about 100,000 e mails that went out. The leader of the Virginia Fair Tax organization wanted to be the first to call the federal court Monday morning. Like it was an honor to be the first ones into the fray of which they were. Ralph Nader’s coordinator called Sunday and told me she had called Ralph to support my federal action. Haven’t heard from Ralph but into the court house they called. Then the Free Texans got into the act and on and on and on until the phone system about melted down at the federal court. Needless to say the federal court was not amused. I was. Lol.
Some woman who has a talk show in Chicago wrote the Press and nominated me for citizen of the year. Some talk show in Texas got it and it was the subject of last night’s show. Some outfit in Florida got it from somebody in Texas and somebody in Oregon got it from somebody in Alaska and are all calling the court. A guy from Oklahoma who ran for Senator from the state as an independent and lost, who got 56,000 votes, called and supports me and is trying to get those people to call the court. They’re going to have to get more phones. Lol. That’s only a part of it. The e mails are being forwarded around to other people all over the country. It kind of exploded. I can’t keep up with the e mails or the calls which are coming in from all over the country. So that’s how the response has been. I read the e mails and laugh. I’m a hero, a patriot, the bravest man in America, and a host of the things. It’s a hoot! It’s taking a life of its own.
So call the Court early and often and vent!!! Lol. It can be very therapeutic. Some woman from Charlottesville Virginia said she called six times so far. And she’s going to keep calling until they stop the bailout. Lol. They laughed when I sat down at that piano……. Hahahahaha. Thought you’d be interested.
Stay tuned. cya Larry
