Հայոց Ցեղասպանություն

On this date in 1915, the Ottoman Gov't rounded up around 300 Armenian leaders, teachers, and intellectuals in what is now present day Istanbul. This is the day that is recognized as the beginning of a genocide that grew to claim over 1.5 million Armenian citizens. This Armenian holocaust is known as "The Great Calamity".

In many ways, today is what defines being an Armenian. Unity & resolve in the face of great adversity, not forgetting the past, and making dreams come true in honor of the many that died.

This is so depressing.. looking at the mistakes of those before us. Imagine what our kids will be dealing with from some of the mistakes we're making.

Locally, nationally, globally..

That crosses party lines.

I have Armenian people very close to me whose family was affected by this tragedy and the effects are still there today.

This is the kind of evil we must be ever vigilant against whether it comes from the right, left or wherever.

Thanks, Joe.

It's happened in recent decades in Tibet and is still happening there == almost all the thousands of monasteries were trashed, monks imprisoned and the only ones still allowed to "operate" are under surveillance by Chinese authorities.

Plus large chunks of Tibet are in "China proper" not even the region now called Tibet, a small chunk of its pre-1959 self.

The Dalai Lama's in Santa Barbara right now. When he passes there's fear the younger generation won't be so patient and spiritual about it. Look at the recent riots that were suppressed. But sadly the world doesn't care in the face of more powerful "potential consumer" and debt holder China.

Sound familiar?

From the L. A. Times
1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A.. County has 10.2 million people)are working for cash and not paying taxes.. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Me xicans on Me di-Cal , whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Me xican nationals here illegally
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.
(There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County . )

(All 10 of the above are from the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.. Over 70% of the United States ' annual population growth (and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue

HOW CAN YOU HELP ?

Send copies of this letter to at least two other people. 100 would be even better..

Thank you Mayor Sam for posting this,"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."-Edmund Burke ...94 years and counting for recognition and justice and end of denial for a genocide committed against an entire race and it's 1,500,000 victims...and for those who are ignorant or don't care about this human travesty and issue, I feel sorry for you and know it's people like you who don't make this world a better place, thank you for your non-contribution to humanity & justice...!

Muslims killed the Armenians. They are gaining power in the US so they can do the same to Americans. Read Brigitte Gabriel's book Because They Hate and go to her website to read about her and what the Muslims did to Lebanon. Last night I heard Brigitte speak in Chino Hills to a packed auditorium. Americans better wake up soon. We are in for the fight of our lives. Join ACT! for America.

These fucking Armenians should shut the Hell up (as should all whiny ethnic enclaves.) After all, when people emmigrate to the U.S. they're SUPPOSED to be coming here to start over, to begin anew, to put aside old grudges, to let bygones be you-know-whats and to BECOME AMERICAN. But no. Instead every year we're subjected to a bunch of pudgy, angry, chain-smoking 20 year-old Armenian gangbangers w/ their stupid round shaved heads, black t-shirts and gold crucifixes parading around the federal bldg. like their ancient "holocaust" is OUR problem or something. And boy, did they ever waste plenty of time at Friday's city council meeting! Whew! With those creepy-looking monks in their black KKK shrouds and all the idiots on the council trying to out do each other w/ their predictably solemn and sympathetic remarks. (The BEST was Bill Rosendahl's comparison of the Armenian "holocaust" to his own gay plight and the plight of his gay brothers and sisters!! Bet the traditionally-homophobic Armos loved THAT!!) Anyway, I'm no fan of the Muslims by any stretch of the imagination but it's high time these idiot Armenians get back to their houkah bars and GET OVER IT.

Trying being a RESIDENT before you run for PRESIDENT.

You are probably too dumb to know that you can't be president of America if you're not born here. You must be talking about president of Armenia. A job that only a tool would want. Go there and run for it.

The fact that your up and posting at that time of night tells me you have nothing better to do with your life.

All i can say in response is that if ignorance was a blessing, you would be a saint.

Go get some sleep you disgusting, hate-filled old bag of silicone. You are repulsive and racist beyond belief. I hope you're not representative of the Sunland-Tujunga area where you live. They should be embarrassed that you live amongst them.

Joe B. and Mayor Sam:

Thank you for remembering this tragic occurence. As they say, those that forget history are doomed to repeat it.

When Hitler was first planning his extermination of the Jews, either Goering or Goebels raised the possibility that the world would object. To which Hitler replied:

"who remembers what happened to the Armenians?"

Wow, who should we go after next...Crouts, spics, chinks, zulus, red skins, wops, limies, jews, catholics, protestants, budhist, monks, scientologist. etc.? And, don't forget to include the ugly american!

Regardless of culture, everyone has a right to life. No one deserves to die! Those who participate in genocide should be punished!

So basically, your Messiah lied to you by refusing to use the word genocideBut instead of getting angry at Dear Leader you're just going to ignore it and continue to Blame BushHitler™ instead.

BTW, how much longer will The One™ be getting a free pass on everything?

Just a rough guesstimate would be helpful for us wingnuts so we'll know when to expect your protest marches to begin.

Ugly American, you need to meet Rita the old hag. Your politics mesh nicely and she loves to talk about herself as though she were sexy and you need some sex. Get together.

She likes that black face picture and you probably do to. You could dress up and play Ike and Tina and I hope you really get into the part. Don't hold back. Treat her like Ike treated Tina.

Genocide is repulsive and disgusting and participants should be gathered together and treated likwise, once they have been determined guilty during a fair trial of course!

@7:39....thanks for proving my point.

Unlike Barry O'Liar, I have no problem saying the words "Armenian Genocide" in public.

Perhaps you should be directing your frustration and anger at him rather someone who actually agrees with you.

Oh well, there's always next year. Or the year after. Or the year after that. Or the year...
