Calstate Dems involuntarily commit the innocent and let homeless psycho killers run free

Two days ago, An elderly woman was murdered in front of her sister and onlookers on LA's metro gold line station in Little Tokyo. The station, recently opened a year ago under the new gold line extension into east LA now has its first big incident. An insane drug addicted and mentally ill homeless woman is now in custody for committing the murder.

The killer, a woman named Jackkqueline Pogue committed the offense has a long history of mental illness not to mention an even longer criminal history. She had been thrown out of just about every shelter and welfare housing in the city (which is surprisingly not uncommon given that these shelters and other facilities turn a blind eye to drug use and crime) and had a history of roaming LA's metro stations and trains panhandling and causing trouble.

Under California law including a newly expanded version of the LPS act, she was supposed to have been placed in involuntary commitment, institutionalized for a short period and then required to take medication and attend peer counseling.

That never happened.

In fact at least a year previous she assaulted an elderly man at Pershing square station and a Hispanic woman on the metro red line at Hollywood and Vine. The police did nothing. In fact on LAPD officer commented that nothing could be done anyway since she was mentally ill therefore she would get off easy. That still is no excuse. A woman is now dead thanks to their neglect. This should never have happened.

But the innocent are punished still...

This of course brings me to yet another tragedy. This week or maybe next when I get to it, I intend to publish an article on my blog and elsewhere about a high school graduate who was ready to start her adult life only to have it taken away from her by the state of California and mental health professionals.

Melinda Lee, The granddaughter of Chinese refugees who fled Mao Tse Tung's communist upheaval in China to Taiwan, then America and whose parents wound up embracing him had her whole life ahead of her when all of a sudden it was snatched away just a month after she graduated from High School. This woman had her whole life ahead of her... not anymore.

Melinda was forced into involuntary psychiatric commitment by her parents because according to them, she was awkward and peculiar. Doctors labeled her as having Asperger's syndrome, a form of mental social retardation that is also said to be related to autism. Doctors claimed she didn't fit in and was incapable of becoming an independent adult. All of this was conjecture and hear say. They based it on lies by the parents as well as their own biased opinions just because she was said to be nerdy.

Plenty of kids who are nerdy go on to accomplish great things! Think about people like Bill Gates for example. But no. Liberals want the government to butt in. To that end they make up a stupid disorder and then the government comes in, cancels the God given rights of our constitution and forces them to go through things THEIR way. As a result, poverty and disaster which is what always can be expected evertime government is in control.

Melinda had her whole future destroyed. She was not harmful to herself or anyone, she was an A student, she was a bright intelligent young woman ready to enter the world but instead she had that taken from her. In the coming week You will learn more about how liberalism destroyed her.

Meanwhile Jack Pogue gets to sleep on the streets of skid row, she gets thrown out of every shelter and SRO in the city, she goes around making trouble and nobody does anything! Add to this, California gives away several hundred dollars of your taxes to these people like Pogue for doing no work and they spend it on drugs. It all comes down to her killing an innocent old lady at a train station and only then is she arrested and detained. Unlike Melinda and others who are detained because liberals hate freedom and hate successful people.

Now of course I expect more debates to surface about terminating more of our God given liberties in the name of safety against mentally ill criminals. This despite as I mention already in a previous article Laws to that end already and always have existed, even if Hogue wasn't violent, the fact that she is mentally ill, homeless and unable to care for herself would have been enough for the state o come in and place her in the least restrictive setting possible. This as opposed to Nancy Pelosi putting Melinda Lee in an institution and drugging her into oblivion not to mention Nate Tseglin, a high school student who was institutionalized for being ostracized at school and because his parents were anti communist Russian refugees. Tseglin had a bright future but was drugged into oblivion and now suffers brain damage all thanks to Orange County Liberals.

Until we eject the liberals from the 3 branches of government and from the state assembly in California and other states, we will continue to suffer. So will innocent victims like melinda Lee and Nate Tseglin, and so will the victims and loved ones of violent psychotic homeless.

The liberal war on Veterans

If there is one group of people liberals hate more than conservatives and libertarians, it has to be Veterans. These brave men and women have risked their lives many becoming maimed or injured in the process of protecting our God given freedom and liberty. Is it any wonder that liberals hate them so much?

Returning overseas these days veterans wont come back to find grateful godly Americans but instead America hating hippies and socialists who will spit on them and curse them for daring to fight against a nation that murders its own people for the public good and that promoted what they view is the only working ideology.

These days however as these same deranged enemies of God and of freedom and liberty take their place of power and increase the government, they are finding newer and more wicked ways to enforce their godless socialism and to persecute and oppress veterans who they view as being guilty of war crimes against socialist and Islamist despots that they support. By using the power of the state to confiscate the fruits of their labor and their home all for the public good.

Just as liberals target the elderly and disabled to take away their trust funds, their freedom, their pensions ETC and throw them on streets and institutions, liberals love to target vets. Here are just a small yet telling example concerning the tragic end of Army Chaplin Reverend Bill Henry Wadell...

Born in Brazil and the son of missionaries, he had worked hard all his life in the United States as an Army Chaplain's Assistant during the Vietnam war, then as a Social Worker in Illinois and finally as a Presbyterian minister in rural congregations. Bill had carefully planed for his retirement. When Bill Fell Ill with Alzheimer's his wife Mary gained power of attorney over him along with his brother from Maine and his wife's sister. They had also received a small inheritance.

But trouble began while Bill was at Jefferson Barracks hospital in Missouri. A social worker from Illinois named Amy Suydam followed him there after speaking to his brother's attorney and told hospital staff and social workers that his wife was a poor care taker. After this, Amy held a secret unconstitutional trial with Madison county judge Nelson Metz to have his wife stripped of power of attorney and placed under the control of a guardian named Sharon Mehrtens. Mehrtens was not an approved guardian ordered Wadell to be placed in a nursing home and threatened to fine his wife $35 an hour if her name was not put on both hers and Bill's bank accounts and safe deposit box.

Bill's life savings along with that of His wife's was plundered by Sharon who was appointed temporary guardian. Bill Wadell was held in a nursing home where he was abused and denied proper care.

On December 13 2007 Bill's health deteriorated. Mary attempted to have him taken to the ER but was prevented by his guardian who had temporary control (until the money ran out anyway) due to secret hearings by Judge Metz and Amy Suydam. The next day Bill died. His death was believed to have been preventable but under the care of liberal government.

This is how His Wife Mary related to tragic murder of this brave US soldier and soldier of God in his last hours as the socialist state of Illinois murdered him...

Bill was very upset by the fact that someone else was guardian. (I don't think he had Alzheimer's.) Bill asked me, "Please, can't I go home to die?"

And I had to tell him I was powerless to take him home. Our last words together were, "May the Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another." And I told him, "I will always love you." He died at 8:48 AM December 14th, 2007. While he was dying, the rest home could not reach me at our home because, following my brother in law's instructions, I was trying to get a lawyer. The guardianship system was used to take away the man I loved, to harass him until he lost the will to live.

But Bill did not die in vain. As a committed Christian, Bill is with our Lord Jesus.

All during our 38 years of marriage, Bill would tell me how much he loved Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington. So I have established the William H. Waddell scholarship there. It was funded with the $33,000 of Waddell's money his brother and his brother's wife wanted.

The $33,000 dollars Mary spoke of was only a fraction of the original money he had and all they recovered from the greedy hands of the Illinois guardian system. The system of the home state of our current ruler and master Barack Obama and the worst. To this day, Neither Judge Metz, Social worker Amy Suydam or Guardian Sharon Mehrtens have been held accountable for their crimes against Bill Waddell.

Judge nelson Metz

Judge Nelson Metz is a shining example of why liberals must never be allowed to become judges or practice law. Aside from trampling the constitution and undermining civil rights in the name of public good, they are open to bribery and generally do not care about justice which is a vice according to liberalism. Nelson Metz has been responsible time and time again for undermining justice and siding against victims with their perpetrators.

Other than the secret unconstitutional hearing that killed Bill Waddell, Metz presided over a child abuse case involving an 8 year old girl who was burned with cigarettes by her mother.

"It's not my job, really, to decide what's in the best interests of the children," Associate Judge Nelson Metz said on March 9, according to a hearing transcript.

Although the mother pleaded guilty to not protecting the child from being repeatedly burned with cigarettes, Judge Metz thought it was in the child's best interests. The girl was taken into the custody of relatives.

As one foster parent of another child commented, "Madison County seems to be a special "black hole" of the judicial system. Funny that Metz felt it was in our son's best interest ...he feels it's not his job to decide "best interest". Isn't that Ironic?"

This... is what you get when liberals are put in charge of America's justice system.

Amy Suydam

Amy Suydam has been involved with a large number of incidents involving guardian abuse not only in Illinois but all the way in St Louis Missouri as well. She lives off the taxpayers as well as a cut of the victims, er... ward's estate. During the secret hearing along with the conference she had with St. Louis social workers, Suydam indicated that Waddell's religious faith was a sign of mental incapacity.

She also rationalized the taking of money that he was war criminal who took part in the killing of North Vietnamese children, never mind that Ho Chi Minh and his communists murdered 10 times the number of civilians in South Vietnam that they or the Americans did in the North which unlike the communists was unintentional.

Sharon Mehrtens

Sharon Mehrtens works for Illinois Adult Protective services as both a guardian and esate manager. Bill Waddell is just one of many of her victims. She runs a company called Sharon Mehrtens INC and with the help of corrupt liberal judges like Metz involuntarily deprives her wards of their needs, many of whom are dumped in nursing homes and institutions as she spends their money for herself.

An example of how the elderly and disabled are treated can be found in an article Here concerning veteran Archie Sorth, And here are some excerpts...

Archie Sorth can't buy food or go to the doctor without asking for money from his court-appointed guardian, Sharon Mehrtens.

Sorth, 76, wakes before 6 a.m. most days in his downtown Belleville apartment above the Oregon Trail Roasting Co. coffee shop. He helps his landlady, owner Andrea Cox, by pulling chairs off tabletops and sweeping the sidewalk.

A former steamfitter and welder and a U.S. Army veteran, Sorth walks to Belleville pantries for food, Cox said, and does odd jobs for small amounts of money.

Mehrtens declined to discuss Sorth's case specifically, citing confidentiality. But, when speaking generally about her cases, she said, "When you have people with mental illness, you can't hand them cash."

Sorth slept on an old mattress on the floor beneath a leaky roof and sort of came with the building when Cox bought it in 2007.

Cox said that after she submitted a complaint to the Southwestern Illinois Visiting Nurse Association, Mehrtens brought him a bed. She said Sorth's teeth were rotting, and that needed dental work was done only after calls and e-mails to Mehrtens.

Cox said she believes guardians should care for their wards the way parents do their children.

"Because Archie's 76, people don't care," she said. "The point is, whoever is the guardian needs to do the job. The state said Archie isn't capable of taking care of himself."

Mehrtens, who handles the roughly $7,000 Sorth gets each year in interest income and his "old age pension," charges $35 an hour to open his mail, make and receive phone calls and pay his bills. His $430 per month rent is often late, Cox said, adding Sorth's utility bills often are past due, resulting in late fees.

Sorth said he has a card with Mehrtens' phone number on it, but he doesn't have a telephone and doesn't want to call her anyway because he's afraid she'll charge him for the call.

Archie's case is typical of all guardianships especially in the state of Illinois which ranks dead last for human rights for the elderly and disabled. Despite support from his landlady and from attorneys, he remains in dire straits. Note also her bigoted belief that people labeled with mental illness (many of whom by the way are not really mentally ill.)must never be allowed to handle money.

Archie Sorth's mental health diagnosis in fact shows signs of being fraudulent and may be based mainly on different circumstances in his life, perhaps even his personal beliefs as is the case with Rev. Waddell as well as attempts to resist abuse by his guardian.

Archie Sorth has had many of his belongings confiscated and taken away by his guardian. According to Sharon, he had too much junk and charged him $2000 for a unspecified fee and for storage. Mehrtens said she sometimes files reports late because even though the current judge requires annual reports, previous judges had her on a three-year filing schedule, and she forgets when a report is due until the court sends her a late notice.

When Mehrtens put Archie Sorth's estate in Bourbon, Mo, up for auction, he tried to burn it down. Also According to a 2002 News story, he ran from Mehrtens and police when she had him evicted and tried to put him in an institution. He lived on the run for 16 months.

Archie Sorth's brother, Dan Sorth of St. Louis has not been supportive for Archie and said Archie Sorth has always had trouble getting along with people. Dan Sorth said he hasn't talked to his brother in years and said that he and their other brother worked to have Mehrtens appointed guardian in 1995 because Archie allegedly frequently gave his property away. In reality it was the exact opposite. Mehrtens as it has been found has actually been confiscating property FROM him and getting away with it by alleging his mental illness and that he hoards trash.

She has not been prosecuted.

This is just an example of how liberals treat our heroes. I have mentioned time and time again how liberals use the government to attack the elderly and disabled especially with the use of SSI to scam them and dump them in institutions and nursing homes. Veterans are probably even bigger targets because liberals continue to hold a grudge against them for their actions in stopping the spread of socialism world wide and further promoting the American ideas of liberty freedom egalitarianism and individual rights and responsibility, not to mention capitalism.

Happy Veterans Day.

UPDATE: Mary Waddell has informed us that they were successful in getting back the money from Greedy Mehrtens. She has also informed us that Bill's neurologist shredded his military records in an attempt to hide his accomplishments

Furthermore we wish to add a correction, Bill Waddell was stationed in Germany during the Vietnam War. He was not in Vietnam at the time and fought in world war 2. We wish him and his family well.

New 2010 rankings on states best for business and careers (guess who's last)

Forbes Magazine recently released its annual statistics on best states for business and careers for 2010. In this tough economy and when looking for a place with good employment, it is a useful tool. The statistics were compiled by several business organizations including Moody's Polling Corporate Real Estate Pacific Research Institute Tax Foundation Sperling's Best Places Better Government Association Census Bureau SBA FBI Dept. of Education and of course Forbes.

Both Private and public sectors came together and compiled this listing. The criteria used included the following: educational attainment, net migration, projected population growth, regulatory and tort climate, incentives, government integrity, transportation and bond ratings job income and gross state product growth as well as unemployment and presence of big companies, projected job, income and gross state product growth as well as business openings/closings and venture capital investments. The quality of schools, health, crime, cost of living and poverty rates were also included.

Those of you who are familiar with the listing on forbes as well as those who have read it on my blog will see some familiar faces both at the top and bottom of the list. Below is the ratings. The numbers on the left are current ranks, the right ones are last years rankings:

1 3 Utah
2 1 Virginia
3 5 North Carolina
4 4 Colorado
5 2 Washington
6 10 Oregon
7 8 Texas
8 6 Georgia
9 9 Nebraska
10 15 Kansas
11 7 North Dakota
12 11 Idaho
13 14 Iowa
14 12 Maryland
15 17 Minnesota
16 34 Massachusetts
17 16 South Dakota
18 29 Missouri
19 19 New Hampshire
20 21 Delaware
21 32 New York
22 23 Tennessee
23 36 Arizona
24 13 Montana
25 28 Alabama
26 18 Florida
27 22 Wyoming
28 31 Nevada
29 30 Indiana
30 33 Pennsylvania
31 43 Kentucky
32 26 Arkansas
33 20 Oklahoma
34 25 South Carolina
35 27 New Mexico
36 35 Connecticut
37 24 Illinois
38 37 Ohio
39 38 California
40 45 New Jersey
41 46 West Virginia
42 42 Alaska
43 48 Wisconsin
44 44 Louisiana
45 47 Vermont
46 39 Hawaii
47 49 Michigan
48 40 Mississippi
49 50 Rhode Island
50 41 Maine

The state of Utah beat Virginia out as best state for business. Salt Lake City and the rest of Mormon Country in particular the city of Provo have enjoyed a great deal of economic prosperity. Virginia's decline was probably due to the lost of manufacturing jobs along with upticks in violent crime in Richmond. Utah, with its pro capitalist business climate and strong foundations of moral, family and religious values were no doubt essential in its climb to the top. Say what you want about Mormon beliefs in general, its emphasis of family values without a doubt made this possible.

And just like in previous years, low tax small government republican conservative states such as Texas, Nebraska, Colorado, North Carolina ETC. have retained the top ten despite shrills from socialist Democrats that those are bad states with no taxes or programs for lazy slackers. Minnesota, Washington state and Oregon were the only Democrat states to remain on top. Don't expect it to last much longer.

The free state of New Hampshire remains at 19 near the bottom of the upper bracket due to an influx of communist Democrats fleeing the messes they made in Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island New York, California and elsewhere. They brought their anti freedom anti business beliefs with them and put them to practice, pulling The Free state downhill.

Surprisingly, The Peoples Socialist republic of Massachusetts made a steady climb up due to reforms by counter revolutionaries no doubt. All they need to do now is chuck out the unconstitutional insurance mandate and all will be well.

At the bottom of the list as always were the liberal states. All those states where liberal mantras of government knows best, for the children and for the greater good (always at the expense of your children and their greater good BTW) are put in practice and were liberty and freedom are disdained as racist Nazism, where socialism is all that's allowed and where your rights don't matter. Alaska is the only state of any kind of conservatism at the bottom. California which has embraced the European model is close to the bottom 10.

Not surprisingly the State of Maine which also embraces European leanings was dead last, bumping Rhode Island, another model of Europeanism in America off. Mississippi, long considered worst state in the union was behind that followed by the Europeanized state of Michigan which was the home state of Michael Moore.

Maine's decline is no doubt due to voter initiatives from Democrats asking for more taxing spending and borrowing. The value of the dollar has declined greatly in the state that has close to the biggest tax burden not to mention largest government administration in the nation due to constant borrowing to keep the mega beast alive. That, and demands by Maine's immoral majority to allow illegal aliens to vote, raise property taxes and the defeat of the Tabor (tax payer bill of rights) amendment last year for the 2nd time. Add to this, a lack of welfare reform and generous handouts to teenage moms with litters and dope fiends.

In addition, a growing number of gangs especially around the Portland Metro area, a massive increase in homelessness, even new taxes against vacationers such as what to do with your row boat!!

There is hope for Maine. The recent elections of republicans have given Maine and opportunity to come out of its hell hole and return the the traditional values of America and the free market. Let us hope and pray that this so. Its up to us to make sure our newly elected republican leaders have a backbone to stand for their convictions of freedom liberty and free markets against the tyranny of the socialist left.

Yes folks, its what it is. Hitler would be proud.

Barack Obama New Deal economic stimulus Fail

The UN rights of the child in a nut shell and the coming UN police state

The truth behind the UN RIGHTS OF THE CHILD. What it really entails

1. First of all, the government (unelected in this case)will be the parent not you. Dont like it, you lose them.

2. Your child has a right to be forced to go to a communist indoctrination center (school) to be dumbed down, and conditioned to be a loyal marxist who will never question authority and grow up to be an illiterate factory worker

3. Your child has a right to grow up in a marxist country with no freedom of speech, freedom of the press and has the right to be sent to a holocaust style camp if he/she is suspected of evil thoughts like freedom or religion.

4. Your child has the right to be indoctrinated into becoming a pervert by other perverts and being forced to be brainwashed that that promiscuity and prostitution are acceptable.

Your child has a right to be a drug addict.

5.Your child has a right to be free of any mention of the word God other than a curse word. The right to be forced to remain godless under penalty of death

6. Your child has a right be forced into mandatory mental health screening run by communist doctors who will brand him/her mentally incompitent if does not agree with tenents of socialism in addition forced to take toxic drugs.

7. Your child has a right when they grow up to loose all the fruits of their labor for the greater good.

8.Your child has as right to grow up enslaved to the whims of the state in the name of the greater good and live in squalor and poverty just like all the other nations that are in lock step with the Socialist United Nations

9. Your child has a right to earn little while those in charge live off of them. They have the right to be euthanized by force when they become to old to work or are crippled.


Just remember folks! If government can give it to you it can take it from you.

GOP = the party of civil rights. Democrats = the party of white supremacy

I was recently emailed an article by Frank Ross called 15 questions for Democrats. It demonstrates some of the lies being told that republicans are racist. Reality check. Its the opposite. Liberals are racist

Which is the Real 'Racist' Party: Fifteen Questions for Democrats
Big Journalism
Posted by Frank Ross Feb 8th 2010

Once upon a time former Governor, Presidential candidate, and Chairman of the Democrat National Committee called the GOP the "White Party." CNN commentator Lou Dobbs took Dean to task for his language.

So was Dr. Dean, and those among the Left who share his understanding of history, accurate? Is the GOP the party of white people? Let's test the good doctor's diagnosis.

ANSWER: Ross Barnett was a Democrat.

QUESTION: In 1965, the nation's eyes were focused on the Selma Voting Rights Movement and three Selma-to-Montgomery marches. Marchers were opposed by the White Citizens' Council and the Ku Klux Klan. On "Bloody Sunday," March 7, 1965, about 600 civil rights marchers left Selma and walked east. At the Edmund Pettus Bridge they were confronted and attacked by state troopers and sheriff's deputies. During this time, Theophilus Eugene "Bull" Connor, Alabama Public Safety Commissioner, became infamous for his brutal tactics against Civil Rights activists. Was "Bull" a Republican or a Democrat?

ANSWER: "Bull" Connor was a Democrat.

QUESTION: When you compare the makeup of the Cabinet members who served under Democrat President Jimmy Carter with the Cabinet members appointed by Republican President George W. Bush, which President appointed the highest percentage of African-Americans to his Cabinet?

ANSWER: Just 1 of the 21 persons Carter chose for his Cabinet, Patricia Harris, was an African-American, or 4.7% of his appointees. Of the 33 persons appointed by Bush to his Cabinet, 4 were African-Americans, or 12.1% (the same percentage reflected in our population). Bush's cabinet also included several other persons of color.

QUESTION: Was the first African-American popularly elected Governor a Republican or a Democrat?

ANSWER: Democrat Lawrence Douglas Wilder was the first African-American popularly elected as governor of a U.S. state. Wilder served as the 66th Governor of Virginia from 1990 to 1994. (Fair is fair.)

QUESTION: When was the race barrier broken with regard to the position of Secretary of State of the United States? Under a Republican or Democratic administration?

ANSWER: During the Republican administration of George W. Bush, Colin Powell became the first African-American Secretary of State. He was followed by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, also appointed by Bush, who was the first female African-American Secretary of State.

QUESTION: When was the race barrier broken with regard to the position of Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States Armed Forces? During a Republican or Democrat President's administration?

ANSWER: Republican President George H. W. Bush appointed General Colin Powell as Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1991. Earlier, Republican President Ronald Reagan appointed Powell as his National Security Advisor.

QUESTION: When the first African-American member of the U.S. Armed Forces engaged in action for which he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, was the President at the time a Democrat or a Republican?

ANSWER: Sergeant William Harvey Carney (1840-1908) of the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Civil War Battle of Fort Wagner on July 18, 1863. The action of the 54th that day was depicted in the movie "Glory." The citation for his medal read:

"When the color sergeant was shot down, this soldier grasped the flag, led the way to the parapet, and planted the colors thereon. When the troops fell back he brought off the flag, under a fierce fire in which he was twice severely wounded."

The President was a Republican named Abraham Lincoln. Let's hope Dr. Dean was a better physician than he is an historian. As well as those who think like him.

"I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
-President Lydon Baines Johnson, Democrat

"These negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they've never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness."
-President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981), Democrat

"I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
-Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat

"I think one man is just as good as another so long as he's not a nigger or a Chinaman."
-President Harry Truman, Democrat

If you want You can read it here for yourself And lets not forget about several other beloved Democrats, Al Gore SR, who was also pro segregation, Strom Thurmond, who was Democrat at the time but upon having his eyes opened switched over and even admited that these southern democrats were hard core socialists. Then there FDR, the most beloved liberal president of all time and who interned the japanese and supported lynchings.

Aren't liberals tolerant and wonderful? THe mosquitos seem to think so...
