Rep. Torres Enters Prayer Into Official CNMI House Record












July 23, 2010

Saipan Rep. Stanley Torres, who supports legalizing marijuana, lifting a local ban on gun ownership, expunging records of criminals, and other controversial issues, has introduced a "special prayer" for the CNMI into the official record during a special session Thursday.

From The Saipan Tribune:
Torres entered on official record his so-called “prayer” for the CNMI during a special session of the House of Representatives on Thursday.

“God protect the CNMI from destruction, annihilation, and eventual extinction due to DOI's recommendation to the U.S. Congress for instant citizenship to over 20,000 nonresident aliens that would outnumber, out-vote, and overrule the NMI indigenous on their own land,” Torres said.

He added, “God protect the CNMI and the state of Arizona in their quest for self-governance. Amen.”
Who knew that God heard untruths masked in the form of a prayer? "Destruction, annihilation and eventual extinction" could occur from an explosive volcano, from a nuclear war, or maybe a tremendous earthquake followed by a tidal wave, but from granting "instant citizenship" to legal foreign workers who lived and worked in the CNMI for years and many for decades? No, hardly!

Torres is another CNMI official who likes the foreign workers to stay in the CNMI as long as they are disenfranchised and denied of political and social rights.  Is that a spiritual attitude?  In fact, that prayer certainly did not show appreciation to the thousands of foreign workers who are living and working in the CNMI. Not nice.

Stanley Torres  is the same legislator who periodically introduces a bill to re-examine the CNMI-US relationship.  Where was Rep. Stanley Torres when the CNMI was negotiating with the U.S. to become part of the American family and follow U.S. law? The CNMI and Arizona are questing for self-governance? Who knew!? Does that mean they do not want federal funding?  What exactly does that mean?

The prayer was introduced right before a second anti-DOI gathering sponsored by the cash-strapped CNMI government. The CNMI Office of Carolinian Affairs and the CNMI Indigenous Affairs Office are sponsoring a gathering of the the Refaluwasch Community to discuss the Department of Interior's Recommendations to the U.S. Congress and any impact on the community.

CNMI is getting to be like a long running TV show that runs out of ideas - like the Hawaii episode on Happy Days.

It might be time to change the channel.

Dear God, if there is such a thing as reincarnation please bring Stanley back as an OCW. Amen

How can a person's prayer for protection be heard when his works even denied their trust and belief in God?

1.)legalizing marijuana (to make our teens go astray)
2.)lifting ban on local gun ownership (so anyone can kill easily)
3.)expunging of criminals (to give them a chance to do crime again)

Titus 1:16 says "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good works reprobate."

Hey, we need some entertainment. Sure, there are movies and TV and such, but this is right here. Indeed, I pose the question, what would we do WITHOUT Stanly Torres? Laugh less would be my answer. So you go Stanley. I can't wait to see what you come up with next. Wait! OK, this was the Ten Commandments. So what other epic movie could you be in. I know, Titantic. He can get one of those old boats and paint "CNMI" on the side and say this is what happens when you grant citizenship to workers. We have the media there. And there's Stanley, at the tip of the bow as the ship sinks slowly into the sea. And remember, a good captain always goes down with his ship...

Oh, Stanley, Stanley, Stanley, when will you stop smoking weed and start thinking?

Not Titantic, how about "Raging Bull" Stanley could write "CNMI" on his shirt and then list ten workers beat the crap out of him. Let's face it, Stanley is living, walking Raging Bull...t

Stan's brain has been ravaged by untreated STD's

He is/has been acting like the Hippy's from the past with his brain "burned" on weed and LSD. But with Stanley, he has the added factor from the booze at Godfathers. and other places.
Poor Stanley!! In his own mind he is the gift and salvation for the NMI, while in fact he is the laughing stock,in the legislature.
The Gov and the rest of his followers follow suit closly.

Why would the NMI have any investors under these embarrassing Govt.people
If these elected really wanted to bring in investors,and start the upward swing for the economy, the first thing that would start to bring them in, would be for this "clown" we call a Gov. to step down. (along with his Carolinian Mafia and the rest of the convicts.)
Then we could proceed to the other elected.
There are many from Hawaii that follow the papers and this blog and they think this "is good fun", "no class" "pupule", "no shame" and basically a big joke etc.
These antics from these people in the Govt. "makes their day". Very Disgusting.

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
