Im a Terrorist, Are You?

Im a Terrorist,

Are You?

Editor:

Amid all the controversy over the NSA spying on U.S. Citizens nobody has thought to ask, who is defined as a terrorist or a threat to national security? And which agencies, governmental or nongovernmental make that determination?

In 2009, Eric Holders U.S. Dept. of Justice sent out a memorandum to all law enforcement agencies federal, state and local profiling white male Christian military veterans as a greater threat to national security than foreign terrorists.

Thus, by simply changing the definition of who the terrorists are lumped millions of Americans into a criminal category and making them automatically suspects. Therein is the justification for mass spying on otherwise innocent citizens.

Janet Napilatano apologized to veterans for the memo, but never repudiated it. All the same I proudly acknowledge that I fit Eric Holders terrorist profile 100 percent, how about you?

How Did Nebraska Ever Become a State?

I was born and raised right here in Nebraska, just like you, but there are some very interesting things that you may or may not know about the Cornhusker State.

Did you know that in early 1867, Nebraskas statehood was being blocked because some believed that only White people should be allowed to vote in the Cornhusker State?

Lets turn back the clock to the transition between Nebraskas territorial status and full statehood.

It gets serious in 1866, when a constitution for Nebraska was drawn up.

There was a lot of controversy over Nebraskas admission as a state, in view of a provision in the states original 1866 constitution restrictingsuffragetoonly Whitevoters.

Finally on February 8, 1867, theUnited States Congressvoted to admit Nebraska as a state provided that suffrage was not denied to non-white voters.

But the saga doesnt end there. Its just beginning.
