More than 6 million residential break-ins occur every year -- that is 1 every 10 seconds!
About half of all home burglaries are committed without force, through unlocked windows, patios and doors!
The average cost per break-in was approximately $1,500 (not including the costs of replacing any broken windows or doors)!
1 of every 10 homes will be burglarized this year in the United States -- will you be next?
So, what can you do to reduce your risk of having your home burglarized? Here are some superb ideas suggested by National Crime Prevention Council, Burglary Prevention Council, as well as law enforcement professionals:"

Modern liberalism, says Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel, has emptied the national narrative of its civic resources, putting religion outside the public square and creating a value-neutral 'procedural republic.' One of the old heroes of liberalism, John Dewey, said in 1897 that the practical problem of modern society is the maintenance of the spiritual values of civilization. Not much room in liberal thought for that now, or for what another liberal icon, Walter Lippmann, called the 'public philosophy.' The failure to perceive the importance of community has seriously wounded liberalism and undermined its core principles. So has the strong tendency to convert moral and social questions into issues of individual rights, usually constructed and then massaged by judges to place them beyond the reach of majorities and the normal democratic process."
What we observe from these and the encyclopedia of examples that could be cited is twofold: First, we observe the extent of the leadership's dementia, if these are the types of civil-rights threatening actions they oppose. The other is just how anti-advancement the group has become. "
'Minority,' of course, cannot be defined because it is a label that is purely political and used exclusively for politically motivated purposes. These purposes, through all sorts of attempts at special treatment, wind up producing the same dehumanization that we supposedly want to combat. "

This is exactly what a community that is being torn apart by AIDS, illegitimacy, abortion, crime and 50-percent school dropouts needed to hear. Particularly from someone who calls himself a minister. "
As John McWhorter of the Manhattan Institute has aptly put it, today racism is not the main problem of African Americans, but rather '... the mundane tasks of teaching those 'left behind' after the civil-rights victory how to succeed in a complex society.' "
From the end of 1982 to 1989, black unemployment dropped 9 percentage points (from 20.4 percent to 11.4 percent), while white unemployment dropped by only 4 percentage points. Black household income went up 84 percent from 1980 to 1990, vs. a white household income increase of 68 percent. The number of black-owned businesses increased from 308,000 in 1982 to 424,000 in 1987, a 38 percent rise vs. a 14 percent increase in the total number of firms in the United States. Receipts by black-owned firms more than doubled, from $9.6 billion to $19.8 billion.
If this is 'torture,' more, please � and a side of fries. "
According to the Heritage Foundation, children born outside of wedlock were more likely to engage in early sexual activity and have children out of wedlock. The report further stated, 'Compared to children living with both biological parents in similar socioeconomic circumstances, children of never-married mothers exhibit 68 percent more antisocial behavior, 24 percent more headstrong behavior, 33 percent more hyperactive behavior, 78 percent more peer conflict, and 53 percent more dependency. Overall, children of never-married mothers have behavioral problems that score nearly three times higher than children raised in comparable intact families.' "
Their ultimate agenda is gun confiscation. Their strategy is akin to the cigarette-Nazi's strategy: start out with reasonable demands and then escalate. Initially, all the cigarette-Nazis wanted was no smoking sections on airplanes. Then they escalated to no smoking on planes altogether, then in airports, restaurants, workplaces and now even outside. Had they made their full agenda known at the beginning, they wouldn't have gotten anything.
I don't know about you, but if you ever hear that Williams' guns have been confiscated, you'll know that Williams is dead. "
Dean thinks that if you want to find a black in a hotel you go to the bell stand. There are blacks today who own hotels. "
Deroy Murdock, reporting on a Bill O'Reilly expose of Jackson, wrote that 'CEF raised $2,077,219 in 1998 and $9,919,914 in 1999. Meanwhile it spent on $30,933 and $15,699 in education and research in those years respectively. CEF dedicated just 0.39 percent of its budget to its stated purpose.'

It is an incomparable injustice perpetrated on these young to waste a month with TV commercials and charlatans fomenting a prescribed history of social injustice when the children being indoctrinated are unable to read, write or comprehend at their grade levels.
When Carter Woodson initiated Black History Week, black children took pride in being able to read and write. Today the polar opposite is the case. It is the lack of marketable linguistic, social and educational skills that cause the disproportionate rates of unemployment and income disparity among blacks. "

She found the monster's sex and violence offensive. Since sex and violence have been a staple of all literature since Homer and the Old Testament, the 'right not to be offended' is essentially the 'right to be illiterate.'"

Let every negro get a permit to carry a revolver. You are not supposed to be a walking arsenal, but don't you get caught again. Have your houses made ready to afford protection from the fury of the mob, and remembering that your home is your castle and that no police officer has a right to enter it, unless he complies with the usage of the law; see that he does not."
In Helvering v. Davis (1937), the court held that Social Security was not an insurance program, saying, 'The proceeds of both (employee and employer) taxes are to be paid into the Treasury like internal-revenue taxes generally, and are not earmarked in any way.'
In a later decision, Flemming v. Nestor (1960), the court said, 'To engraft upon Social Security system a concept of 'accrued property rights' would deprive it of the flexibility and boldness in adjustment to ever-changing conditions which it demands ...' That flexibility and boldness mean Congress can constitutionally cut benefits, raise retirement age, raise Social Security taxes and do anything it wishes, including eliminating payments. "

Senator John Edwards, D-N.C., told the 106th Congress that the Social Security system was 'riddled with holes. ... And if Congress does not start considering an overall Social Security reform, we will eventually have a hole too big to fix.' In June 2002, Edwards warned again of the 'Social Security crisis.'
On March 30, 2001, Senator Robert Byrd, D-W.V., talked about the 'long-term financing crisis [that] faces the Social Security program.' Again, in May 2003, Byrd referred to 'the impending Social Security funding crisis.'
The above examples illustrate that Democrats have been railing about the Social Security crisis for years. But like a petulant child who must take a contrarian position against his parents, the Democratic leadership is now demanding that no crisis exists.
Who will suffer for such childish behavior? We will. "
'We have literally dumbed down our public,' he continued. 'We have trained them to accept the coverage they're getting. We so rarely explain what's going on, there's no context. So, people of course, aren't interested. They have no idea what's going on.' "
