Obama signs bill to grant Student U.S. permanent residency reports: (CNN) -- A Nigerian immigrant's dream came true when President Barack Obama signed into law a rare private bill granting him permanent residency in the Unites States. Victor Chukwueke, who lives in Michigan on an expired visa, came to the United States 11 years ago to undergo treatment for massive face tumors. He graduated from a university in the state, and plans to attend an Ohio medical school that requires him to have permanent residency, also known as a green card.
In a rare act, the United States Congress passed a private bill this month granting him permanent residency. Obama signed the bill Friday. Private bills -- which only apply to one person and mostly focus on immigration -- are rarely approved. His is the only one to pass in Congress in two years.
"I was overwhelmed with joy; it was nothing less than a miracle," the 26-year-old says. "Only in this country can so many miraculous and wonderful things happen to someone like me."

Dear Mr. President, Stand Strong! Don't Give In! The American People, including Latinos, Support You!

Dear Mr. President,

It is clear. The Republicans do NOT listen to the American people. We voted for you. We voted for your message of standing UP for the Middle Class and to stop giving Tax Cuts to the Rich 1%. We voted for your message of Equality for ALL People in our Country, of ALL Ethnicities, Colors, Religion and Sexual Orientation. We voted for your message of improving Life for the Middle Class, Education (as the Great Equalizer) for All, More Jobs for all HERE in the United States – NOT Outsourced Offshore.
We stand with you, Mr. President, in STOPPING these Mass Murders – and once and for all improving safety for ALL of Us – especially our children in Schools & Movie Theaters – by at LEAST closely monitoring the sales of assault weapons, ammunition and ensuring these sales are closely regulated so that anyone purchasing these types of weapons completes a background check and completes proper forms for purchase.

While the vast majority of the American People support your Message, the far right wing of the Republican Party, supported by many of the rich 1 percent, Fox News (Hannity, O’Reilly), right wing radio (Limbaugh, Bennett, Beck etc) oppose your message. We’ve heard the irresponsible rhetoric from the right wing head of the NRA. Worse yet, the Republican Tea Party backed Congressmen have said they are against any form of compromise. They voted down Republican Majority Leader Boehner’s Plan B proposal. These nut jobs want to go off the Fiscal Cliff. They have proven they DO NOT CARE about America.

Mr. President, YOU CANNOT continue to give in to these Extremists. You CANNOT! Please. DO NOT BACK DOWN, even if it means going off of the Fiscal Cliff. We all know IF you give in, in 2 months and every 2 months down the road, we will be facing another threat of “suicide of America as we know it by Tea Party” with each negotiattion towards ANY economic decision (eg: Debt Ceiling debate).

Mr. President. Stand Strong. We are depending on you.

We ALL know the far right Republican Agenda.

There are so many things we MUST DO this year and throughout your next term. We cannot allow these extremist Republicans to control your agenda. They want to control your agenda this year so you CANNOT continue with:

1. Your rollout of Universal Healthcare
2. Passing Gun Safety Measures (be Tough here and DON’T allow them to control your agenda)
3. Dream Act: Pass the Actual Dream Act
4. Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Mr. President. Please understand. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are solidly behind you. However, we do not want you to hesitate. These scoundrels are looking for ANY sign of Weakness and promise to be like laughing hyenas in small packs, attacking you at every opportunity – anything to deter your righteous agenda.

Mr. President. We Latino People PROMISE to stand with you. We are already hearing the howling of the jackals as they proclaim this is the Highest Year of Latino Deportations. These Scoundrels Must Believe WE LATINOS are Stupid. We too look at the statistics. The vast majority of the Deportations are occurring in states that have passed those heinous Racial Profiling Laws you oppose. The highest rate of deportations in the ENTIRE COUNTRY are in Maricopa County, Arizona – in Sheriff Arpaio’s own County. The highest rates of Deportations are in states that have passed laws SIMILAR TO SB1070. The highest rate of abuses, murders and assaults against Border Crossers are in Arizona – where OFTEN, Border Patrol and LOCAL VOLUNTEERS are from the Far Right Extremist Latino Haters. Mr. President – WE KNOW THIS! And we know that when Comprehensive Immigration Reform finally passes, that these reprehensible officials, like Arpaio, Brewer and others will finally move back into their rabbit holes.

Mr. President, please stand strong! . Please stand True to your righteous agenda. WE THE PEOPLE are depending on you.

Christmas is Next Tuesday. Time to Hold Your Loved Ones Close!

This year has gone by so quickly. It's hard to believe it's time for Christmas 2012.
I have such a wonderful family. I love them all. I am so grateful for each member of my family. I love my husband. We've been married 35 years. I've known him since I was a teenager. He keeps my feet warm at night. I always feel so safe when I am with him.
I am so grateful for my two wonderful sons. They are so strong, hard working and smart. They love their mother so much. They envelope me with their love. They filled my heart when they were born. They've always treated me with great respect, love and tenderness. I am grateful for my daughter-in-law and grandchildren. They love me. I love them. We are all so close.
Every Christmas, we wake up early, everyone comes over. I make them Hot Chocolate and we watch Christmas Movies. We hold each other close. We open gifts together. My biggest gift is their warmth and love. After opening gifts, I make them a delicious breakfast. Then we sit back and relax and enjoy family. In the afternoon/evening, we all go to our son's house and play games and snack. We enjoy just being together.
My brothers and sisters all hold their families close and share Christmas time together. We call, text or Facebook each other, to share our family stories through the holidays.
I know there are sad times across the country and across the world, but each of us should remember the good times too and hold each member of our family close, with love and thankfulness. We do live in a Wonderful Country. As we Thank God for all our Blessings, May God Bless Us All, Everyone!

Why Does ANYONE Need to Stockpille Assault Weapons and Stockpile AMMO for these Assault Weapons?

Adam Lanza's mom was a substitute teacher. She loved her son very much. Yes, there were struggles. Her husband did not stand by her. Instead divorced her. She did not always believe in the school system for her son. Instead she often home schooled him.

Where I question her was her belief in the "end of the world" theories, her stock piling of guns and her taking her son (with issues) out for target practices. That is the part I don't understand. I do not like guns. I don't believe anyone should stock pile guns, especially assault weapons and 100 rounds of assault weapons ammo. Why would anyone do that? That is the question.

Why Does ANYONE Need to Stockpille Assault Weapons and Stockpile AMMO for these Assault Weapons?

Stop the Violence! Stop Guns! LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH, and Let It Begin With Me!

I have so many topics I've planned to blog about this weekend, but after yesterday's shooting, I am stopped short. Like our President, I am so sad. Crying. Thinking of those young, innocent babies. This terrorist attack upon our children makes no sense. But then, no terrorist attack, Domestic or otherwise, makes any sense.

I hope and pray that ALL OF US LOYAL AMERICANS take a moment to reflect and PRAY for PEACE. Pray for an END to Violence. Pray for an END to Assault Weapons and Assault Ammunitions.

Let us ALL Pray for PEACE On Earth! And "Let It Begin With Me!"

RECALL Michigan gov Rick Snyder for hiw Cowardly Union Attacks!

Rick Snyder should be recalled! What their gov is doing is outrageous. How dare him, in a lame duck session, push forward and SNEAK IN such a heinous bill calling for the END of Unions. I wonder how many people think that Big Business will be generous and allow workers to receive a fair wage, healthcare, overtime pay, a 40 hour workweek and vacation time, all just out of the goodness of their hearts? I wonder how many people think that Big Business will forego their outrageous bonuses, and stop cheating on their taxes by hiding their riches in hidden overseas accounts, all because they are so very honest.

I am so angry at that cowardly, sneaky and conniving Michigan gov Rick Snyder What a Coward! How dare him! How dare the COWARD! I ask ALL Michigan residents to advocate a RECALL against that COWARD! RECALL SNYDER! RECALL SNYDER! RECALL SNYDER!

I wonder how many people have studied the history of our country and read about the abuses against workers, starting with the history of slavery, the abuses against minorities including "Operation Wetback" and other abuses, (latinos, asians and others) all to support "Manifest Destiny." Nothing has come easy.

However the Blood, Sweat and Tears of our hardworking and protesting forefathers have gotten us to our current state we have today. Now the heinous, greedy Rick Snyder is out to abolish unions and abolish all of the successes the Unions have achieve to date. RECALL SNYDER! RECALL SNYDER! RECALL SNYDER!

Time for Centrist Republicans to Take Their Party Back and Partner with Our President!

Many Republicans are angry over the results of our Presidential Election. They are fighting amongst themselves, blaming this group or that group for their loss. They blame Romney for his gaffs, including "the 47%" and "Binders full of Women" statements. They blame Grover Norquist for his Anti Tax for the Wealthy Pledge. They blame the Tea Party for their "Far Right Wing" agenda. They blame Donald Trump, Orly Tatz, and the Birther Agenda. They blame Sheriff Arpaio, Jan Brewer, NumbersUSA/FAIR and their ANTI Latino, Racial Profiling agenda. They blame Fox News, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. They blame Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Adelson and their billionaire fund raiser groups. They blame Paul Ryan for his "Voucher Program for Medicare." They blame all the in-fighting that occurred during the GOP Presidential debates, especially Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Gingrich and Bachmann. They blame Talk Radio, including Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck for their angry rhetoric. They blame NJ Governor Chris Christie for sidling up to President Obama after Hurricane Sandy. (plus they blame Hurricane Sandy). They blame Akin and Mourdock for their war on women. They blame Donald Trump, the Koch Brothers, Adelson and Poppa John - the rich billionaires and Big Business, who spouted their hatred of our President. On and on the blame goes.
The truth is, they are all correct. Republicans led a deplorable campaign full of anger and hatred against our President, against the Democratic Party. They pushed forward their Republican policies against minorities and women, . The majority of the American Public -- 53% -- detested their tactics and voted against them.

Today, as we are facing the Fiscal Cliff, many mainstream Republicans are taking a stand. Many Republican Senators are saying NO to Grover Norquist and his No Tax Pledge.

It is time for the More Centrist Republicans to take their party back. They should:
. Accept the ever changing demographics of our Multi Cultural, All Inclusive America
. Partner with our President to Raise the Tax Rates for the richest 2 % and avoid the Fiscal Cliff
. Work with our President to Pass the Dream Act and Comprehensive Immigration Reform
. Work in a bi partisan way so that All Americans have the opportunity to Achieve the American Dream, through Education, Jobs and Improvements in our Economy
. Support our President, Diplomacy and help us all achieve Peace in our World

Romney campaign chief Matt Rhoades said the Romney Campaign regrets the campaign’s hard stance on immigration and all of their negative rhetoric against Latinos, saying it was done mainly to counter the perceived ‘threat’ of primary challenger Governor Rick Perry of Texas.

Republicans are Sneaky & Nasty! Propose Keeping Tax Cuts for Rich while Insisting Upon Massive Cuts to Social Security & Medicare!

Today, the Republicans in Congress, led by John Boehner and Paul Ryan, have just outed themselves! Horrible! John Boehner made an AWFUL counter proposal to our President today regarding the Fiscal Cliff.

Here is what Republicans are proposing:
1. NOT ENDING TAX CUTS for Rich: Boehner said NO to the President's proposal to end Tax Cuts for the Rich 2%! Instead, he proposed....

2. CUTTING Social Security: SS is SOLVENT until 2033. Yet Boehner and the Republicans are asking for $200 billion through revising the Cost of Living "CPI". This means that those on SS will see IMMEDIATE CUTS in their Social Security benefits. No more cost of living increases...instead, if approved, each retiree will see a CUT of up to $1000 each month by the time they reach 75.

3. RAISE MEDICARE ELIGIBILTY AGE TO 66 - 70: $600 billion in Medicare savings that would include raising the eligibility age and "structural Medicare reform." That's what they euphemistically call Ryan's voucher system, but it's not clear from the information available if that's what they're talking about now.

4. $800 billion in unspecified "pro-growth tax reform that closes special-interest loopholes and deductions while lowering rates."

5. $300 billion in other "mandatory" savings, including farm subsidies. No further details there.

6. $300 billion in further unspecified discretionary cuts.
