Americans sent a Message

American citizens sent a message loud and clear to the President and to Democrats in yesterdays elections.

If ANY of you who retained your seat or gained a seat haven't quite heard the message; don't worry, we will vote you out next time.
Americans have had enough!

Do you think your job is over? You voted, you helped create an historical take over in the House, so you're done right? 


Now we must make our newly elected representatives do what they said they would do that gave them the seat they were elected (key word there, elected) into.  We the PEOPLE must hold them accountable, make our voices heard! If we sit idly by and do nothing .... well, we get what we deserve.

This off year election was amazing!  So many people were fired up and ready to vote and they did! They turned out in droves!

Very exciting times!  Lets keep the momentum moving and make this country what we want and not what the Government wants.  This is OUR republic and don't you let them forget it!

*** Special thanks to Missourians!  Thank you for passing Prop B! You REALLY done good!
Oh behalf of my dogs and myself, we thank you thank you thank you!

Happy 11th Birthday to my boy Jiminy!

My sweet loving dog Jiminy turns 11 yrs old today.  I adopted him 3 yrs ago from a wonderful Sanctuary, The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, in Kanab, UT. 

Jiminy was taken off the streets in nearby Fredonia Arizona when he was 2 yrs. old.  After being held at the facility for the required time he was taken to Best Friends because his rescuer, Tom Corrigan, believed he was special and deserved a real chance at a forever home.

I ran across this picture of him on the Best Friends Network 6 years ago and fell instantly in love:

I couldn't adopt him for 3 yrs because my dog Bear had aggression issues and we were fighting for his life against Congestive Heart Failuer.  My Bear passed on May 8, 2007, my world shattered and my heart was crushed. About a month later I found myself on the Best Friends network again, looking at adoptable dogs....I saw Jiminy and inquired.  His official Gotcha Day is July 14, 2007.  He'd been recovering from ACL surgery and was very thin.
This next photo is a before and after....the picture on the right is from Aug. 2007...the picture on the left is from Aug. 2008.  What a year and a forever home can do!

Jiminy helped heal my heart from my loss of Bear.  He is an amazing dog who loves to give hugs and kisses.  He is almost 100lbs (I have to keep him under 100 due to arthritis & hip dysplasia).  I believe he is a German Shep/Malamute mix.

Here are some pictures of our life together:

Happy Birthday sweet boy!  I love you!!

Remember to VOTE!

As an American is it your duty and or obligation to VOTE!  It is simple and takes very little time but it is one of the greatest things you can do.

I would like to encourage every American to vote for the conservative that is on your ballot.  Which also means voting Republican. I know this causes great heartburn for many, but think about it this way.

The past 2 years have been hell for America.  They say that we have "recovered", but really, have we?  I think we have not. Now, think about who has been in power for your state up in Washington and at the local level.  Are they supporting big government (which is the opposite of what this country was founded on) and over the top spending?  Do they favor the Healthcare law or do they want it repealed so we can get something that will work in place? 

Have you been struggling financially?  Are you sick of the President telling you what to do and that you are too stupid to make your own choices? That the only way to move ahead is for the government to control more of our lives?

If the answer is yes then vote Conservative, which means voting Republican.

To all fellow conservatives - vote straight ticket Republican.  Granted, there will be some RINO's in there but they are better than hard wired liberals and we are bound to get more good Republicans than bad so VOTE straight Ticket!

All Americans, please vote. This is a right our ancestors fought hard for and especially in this politically charged time every single vote counts!

It has begun...or maybe I'm just now seeing it?

I was wondering when the shift was going to come from blaming Bush to blaming all republicans for our current mess and now I have my answer; today.  At least this is the first time I have actually seen it specifically stated that we are in this mess because Obama gave into the Republicans and the Democrats did nothing. I suppose that comment came from a far left liberal - the one's that think Obama is not radical enough.  Those people scare me.  I know some and I like them politic's aside. In fact I consider one in particular like family, but their politics really scare me.

Lets take a look at the situation.

The Dems have been in control for approx. 4 yrs now.  Obama for 2 of those years.  Unemployment shot up over 8% once the stimulus was passed - Democrat support/not Republican (at least not entirely) even though the President promised it would not.

Housing Market collapsed - Freddie and Fanny are STILL in business - the housing issue started with a Democratic you recall that it was Clinton who demanded banks loan money to people who would otherwise not qualify (it's all part of that spreading the wealth thing).  It crashed and bit us these last two years.
Health Care bill passage: You know, "Obamacare".  That bill that they said would help us (false), cut the deficit (false), the one where we get to keep our current insurance (false)and doctors (false), the one that was going to do SO much to cover EVERYONE (false) so much so that they made it mandatory for every American to have it or be fined (True).....Health care enforcement is now part of the IRS and you know how everyone LOVES the IRS!  Not only is it required, but the end result will be that everyone is covered but no one can get care!  Even my friend(s) in Canada have said that what the US has in place is awful.  There is so much wrong with the Obamacare that it would take too much time and space to discuss it all.  There is one word that sums it up: Disgusting! 

Student loans, cars, banking, ...the government has it's arms around all that now....just what the left liberal dems wanted.  Just what the Left Liberal Democratic President wanted.
I see no republicans here.  There ARE Republicans who voted for these, but those are not what this writer would describe as Real Republicans.  Those are RINO's and we are coming for them in the voting booths in November 2010 and 2012.

Simply put, if the state of the economy is good, if you like where the housing market is, the job market, National Security... then by all means; vote Democrat.....we will send the men in white coats for you because you are indeed crazy.

Law abiding Illegal Immigrants...

Yep, that's right.  That is what the Mayor of New York and his buddy Murdoch are claiming in their bid to get amnesty for illegals.  They are over looking the glaring truth of the matter....being in this country is a crime; yep, believe it. It is a CRIME.  Last time I checked breaking Federal Law is a crime.  No matter which way you swing it; crossing into this country illegally makes you a criminal.

Here is a link to a great blog on the subject:

Comprehensive Con Artists

I am not in favor of Mass deportation.  I like the argument the writer of the above link puts forth.
Enforce the law which will in turn lead to self deportation of the illegals.  It won't be over night and it won't be en Mass, but it will happen.  Not only will they be leaving, but the the numbers trying to get in will decrease...except those who want to transport drugs and or weapons.  Those guys will just have to get more creative, but with our resources not totally strapped; our Border patrol and others will have the means to go after them and stop a larger majority.

Just think about if for a minute.  All that $$ we as a nation spend on illegals in ALL aspects of our life...medical, food, welfare, crime, deaths etc....reduced.  All those illegals dying in the dessert to get here, reduced.  It is a win win.

Yet Another reason to make English the official language of America

Have you heard about the LA rioting over the shooting death of Manuel Jamines by police?  Jamines was an illegal immigrant from Guatamala, a day laborer. It's rather interesting.  Not in a good way mind you, but interesting in the fact that it seems to highlight a very real and growing problem.... America is loosing her identity, her culture.

Based on what I have read on the riots, it seems that residents in a Central LA neighborhood are outraged that this illegal immigrant was killed when he came after police with a knife raised over his head. It was a switchblade with a 3 inch serrated blade.  It seems police on bike patrol were stopped by a  neighborhood resident claiming that a man with blood on his hands tried to stab her and pregnant woman next to her.  According to the witness, she heard police tell him to put the knife down and then heard 3 or 4 shots. Jamines was killed at the scene.  (side note: the knife was covered in blood and they are doing DNA testing on it to try and find out whose blood it is)

An important point in this story, no not the fact that he was illegal, that is important but not the one I am getting at. The one I am getting at is the fact that the police asked him in both Spanish and English to put the knife down. Instead of putting the knife down, Jamines raised the knife above his head and lunged at Officer Frank Hernandez, a 13-year veteran of the department. There were 3 officers on scene. All were Latino and spoke Spanish as well as English.

So what’s my point? I actually have a couple. First, they asked him in Spanish and English. Second, as it turns out Jamines’ first language was a Mayan dialect and not Spanish.

How, you may be asking yourself, does this relate to America loosing her identity and culture?  Let me show you where that fits in; the reason for the riots. It’s not that this guy was killed by police, OK so maybe it was, but the residents are infuriated by the lack of sensitivity by police.
My reason for thinking this?  Take the comments of Mr. Salvador Sanabria.  Salvador Sanabria, executive director of nonprofit community group El Rescate, said that they (the police) could have used pepper spray or a Taser gun instead and that some (police) should have been trained in Mayan. Really?

Here is a direct quote from Sanabria:

“Sanabria said residents were already angry with the police over strict enforcement of public drinking laws and clampdowns on street vendors. The police department doesn't go after immigrants based on their legal immigration status, but Sanabria said officers still could be more sensitive.
They don't understand the complexity of the ethnic demographic population they have here," Sanabria said. He added that Jamines' first language apparently was a Mayan dialect, not Spanish, and said some police need to be trained in it.” (

So, police are trying to clean up the streets of this area and clamping down on lawbreakers. .. this seems to be a problem for the people in the neighborhood. Apparently, they like crime. They are “clamping down” on street vendors…..OK, so this is a problem because obviously they are clamping down on them for a reason. Quite possibly the Vendors don't have the proper permits or what have you so officers are making them get "legal".  Officers need to be more sensitive…yep, that’s what I want; soft sensitive police officers who would rather sit down for a tea party than take out a knife wielding man who already threatened 2 women and was coming after them.

Now back to my original claim of America loosing her identity and culture and how this relates.

The thing that struck me right out of the gate was the comment that the officers asked in Spanish and English. If America had an official language, the only language they would have had to ask in would have been English. End of story. Oh I know, just because English would be the official language doesn't mean everyone will speak it...if they were here legally they would be required to learn it and officers could ask in another language if they wanted to, but they wouldn't be required to as so many seem to be implying these days. Secondly, this Salvador Sanabria thought that some officers should have been trained in Mayan…really?  (see previous point)  Just how many languages will police, fire, medics, lawyers, judges, teachers, janitors, maids, or anyone have to know so that it will be fair? If America had one official language, then it would not be Americans that had to learn 100 other languages, but the immigrants coming into this country would have to learn English. Seems fair enough don't you think?

A country that is so diverse that it has no solid foundation is destined to fail. A country that does not have a defined culture is destined to fail. When we become so diverse that we have nothing in common, we will fail. When there is no sense of community or sense of what it means to be an American, we fail.
America is a diverse society; however, we must have a common thread among us.  We can have our own identities, but we have to have one thing in common; we must be anchored in our commitment to our country, to our language, our culture and our laws…. Otherwise, we fail.

NY Mosque/Cultural Center...

Regardless of what you call it; it has enraged many Americans and the Imam isn't helping things.
He recently wrote an Op Ed about the situation which showed me just how moronic this man is.  More recently, he made the following comment:

"The imam told O'Brien "had I known [the controversy] would happen we certainly would never have done this."
Asked if he meant he would not have picked the location, Rauf said, "we would not have done something that would create more divisiveness."
Taken from:

HAD HE KNOWN?????  This is the obvious question that is being floated, but the real question is How could he NOT know!? In my humble opinion, he did know and he simply did not care. In fact, it would not be a shock for me to learn that not only did he know it would create controversy, but that is exactly what he wanted. 
Yep, he wanted it.  I've done a little background checking on this man and while he says he wants to build bridges and peace etc. out of one side of his mouth, he's saying the opposite out of the other side.  He is not what he tries to project, he is not concerned with Americans or how we feel about radical Islam.  In my mind this Imam represents the new face of Radical Islam.

He plays this role of wanting to be a peace maker, of one who wants to build bridges and create an understanding of Islam; however, it is indeed a role, it is an act, it is not his true agenda.  His true agenda is staying with his firm belief of Islam in the most radical of ways. America is full of Infidels, why would he care about embracing us or having us embrace this Islamic building?  The truth is that he doesn't and the whole thing is utterly disgusting.

America is a place for freedom of religion or freedom from religion if you so choose.  That is not and has never been the issue.  It's about compassion, common sense and following your moral compass.

Clearly, this Imam is not so stupid that he could not have anticipated the outrage at such a building so close to Ground Zero.  He is now saying things that show what he really wants to happen.  He claims if they move the center that the wrath  of Allah will crash down upon us in a way we have never seen.  A scare tactic; one that promotes his true agenda.

Do you think 600 million is enough?  Too much?

I am VERY Passionate about border security (as if I needed to tell you) so I want to know your take on it.  I am very curious to see if the majority is in favor of the $600 million and if so, why and if not, why.

Give me your best shot.  I'm changing the comment requirements so comments will post immediately.  By doing this I am in NO WAY stating my approval or acceptance for comments.  Keep it civil and clean please.

Immigration article from Oct 2006 Bush lets down Mexico..

seems Bush upset the Mexican President... I'm guessing Obama does not want to repeat those steps seeing how Mr. Calderon not only came to the US but trashed us to the applause of the Democrats and our President.  Seems trashing America is the IN thing to do now; our current President sure does enough of it.
See the article here:
Mexico: Bush let us down Oct.2006

Failure to enforce: Impeachable offense?? yes, no?

Just read a great article that spells it out perfectly.  State Sen. Russell Pearce, the chief architect of Arizona’s tough immigration law tells it like it is.  Most telling or one of many most telling is when he states that the silence is deafening....the silence from the Government regarding the 1 million dollar bounty on Sheriff Joe's head by the Mexican Drug Cartel.  Why?  Why would our government stay so silent on this issue?

Read the interview with State Sen. Russell Pearce here:

Impeachable?  What do you think?  Yay, nay, undecided?

Breed Ban on Military base housing

This paragraph says it all as to how strongly people feel about their dogs. 

"At Ft. Bragg, a member of the military who also preferred his name not no be used said he currently owns a pit bull that was grandfathered into the base housing. He and his wife opted not to purchase a home off base because he had planned to attend Physician's Assistants school at Ft. Sam Houston later this year. After the ban was implemented and they realized that they would need to surrender their dog if they moved to another base, he abandoned this idea completely. He only has one year until he is asked to re-enlist. They have decided that if at that time, the Army wide breed bans are still in place, he will get out of the Army all together to ensure the safety of his family. "

Read the entire article here:

Military bans "bad breeds"

As a dog lover and as one who has 3 dogs of my own, this is an outrage.  We need to protest. The military today, you home town next.  Could you give up your dog?  I couldn't and I wouldn't.

Provision 287(g)

Apparently Judge (I use the term lightly) Bolton was not aware of 287(g).  A lot of people aren't.

Want to know more?  Read this:
Provision 287(g)

The 287(g) program, one of ICE’s top partnership initiatives, allows a state and local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.

287(g) Results and Participating Entities

Currently ICE has 287(g) agreements with 71 law enforcement agencies in 26 states. Since January 2006, the 287(g) program is credited with identifying more than 160,000 potentially removable aliens – mostly at local jails. ICE has trained and certified more than 1,130 state and local officers to enforce immigration law.

Here is the information specifically for Arizona:

ARIZONA Arizona Department of Corrections JAIL ENFORCEMENT 09/16/2005 

ARIZONA Arizona Department of Public Safety JAIL & TASK FORCE 04/15/2007

ARIZONA City of Mesa Police Department JAIL & TASK FORCE 11/19/2009 

ARIZONA City of Phoenix Police Department JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008 

ARIZONA Florence Police Department TASK FORCE 10/21/2009

ARIZONA Maricopa County Sheriff's Office JAIL ENFORCEMENT 02/07/2007

ARIZONA Pima County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008

ARIZONA Pinal County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008

ARIZONA Yavapai County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008 

Here is a link to the specific page that shows every state and what they have with regard to 287(g)
Chart of MOA's by State
Scroll down towards the bottom of the page to see the chart.

This is interesting information.  I'm guessing that yesterday's ruling by Bolton null and voids this authority for Arizona agencies granted to them by ICE! 
Here is the actual MOA for the Maricopa Sheriff Department.  The gives them specific rights with regard to enforcing immigration laws.

What the ruling Doesn't Say

This is right in line with what I was going to post after breaking down the points in the farce of a ruling today by the hack Judge Bolton.
I of course would have been a bit more passionate about it but the message is the same.
On appeal this is a dead ringer; except if we (yes we b/c this is not just for AZ, but for all Americans) get a liberal panel. If this goes to the Supreme Court; I pray Kagen isn't on the bench! Lets see; I am not a lawyer, but I deal with them. I have no judicial experience but I know what a judge does. Maybe I could get a seat on the Supreme Court too seeing how I have about as much experience as that joke Kagen!
Read this article or I may have to go ahead and post my own version!

A slap in the Face to every legal resident of the USA

I am a little late to the party, but I am no less outraged at the decision made today in Arizona.

See the news report here:
Judge Rules in AZ lawsuit

I am currently reading the "Ruling" and breaking it down.  While there are some points to be made and area's that might be somewhat grey if you look hard enough; as of right now I am not convinced this Judge did the right thing.
Once I have finished reading the "Ruling" I will post my comments and the sections I broke down.

I will say this.  It is NOT over.

GOD BLESS ARIZONA and GOD help the legal citizens of the USA!

'ALIPAC Asks For Safe Passage Out of America for Illegals'

This sounds pretty fair to me. Give them safe passage out. If they are leaving; that is what we want so lets not make it difficult for them and in some cases life threatening. This would be the most "humane" way to deal with the exodus and I am in favor of it.

SB 1070 hearings in Arizona

I ran across this Yahoo news article regarding the hearings today on the Arizona SB1070 law.  I wasn't going to post anything about it but after reading some of the statements by the Plaintiff's; I simply could not resist.

Here is the Yahoo Article:   Arizona lawsuits over SB 1070

I quote:
"ACLU attorney Omar Jadwat said the law's provisions are supposed to work together to achieve a goal of prodding illegal immigrants to leave the state. He called it unconstitutional and dangerous."

Just so you understand: ACLU stands for American Civil Liberties Union.  The key word here is AMERICAN.

Note to ACLU attorney Omar Jadwat: YES, it is specifically designed to remove/eliminate or otherwise delete person or persons in this country illegally.  You are saying Federal Law is Unconstitutional?  I suggest you sue the Feds then and not Arizona because they are simply following Federal law.  They are not circumventing it, they are not overriding it and they are not breaking it.  In contrast places in California are in fact breaking Federal Law and harming US Citizens in the process.  Denying them rights granted to them under the laws of the United States of America.

To the US Department of Justice: You need a mental health check.

I quote: "Justice Department lawyers contend that local police shouldn't be allowed to enforce the law because, in part, it's disrupting the United States' relations with Mexico and other countries."

Did you really stand before a judge and say police should NOT be allowed to enforce the law.....(take a deep breath and wait, let it sink in.....OK, now continue) because in part it's disrupting the US' relations with Mexico and other countries?  REALLY! Seriously, no way you believe that.  The United States has agreements in place specifically designed to work with other countries and it in no way allows for the illegal entry of people, the transporting of drugs and the illegal trade of weapons within those agreements.  SB1070 is in no way whatsoever related to any business we do with other countries; unless of course the US is in the illegal drug, people smuggling, murder and pillaging business. 
Eric Holder and anyone in the DOJ that is on board with this should be terminated IMMEDIATELY!

Of course, if this law is allowed to stand as written and illegals flee the area; I just bet the economy in Arizona will rise, crime will drop, and unemployment will drop.  Yep, a lot of things will drop and all of it good for America and Good for the citizens of Arizona.

It is a disgrace and an outrage that our very own government will side against it's own rule of law, enjoin with other countries, bankrupt and murder its own citizens because of demented reasoning and greed.

Stand strong and tall Arizona.  Americans stand with you and behind you.
God Bless America and God Bless Arizona!

Sherrod & Graham OH BOY!

2 topics: Sherrod and Graham...both are ridiculous in so many ways that I can't even begin to cover them all.

First, as to the Sherrod speech. I heard the uncut speech played on television this morning that put it into "context" and I have to say, applause when she said she didn't help the farmer  because he was white absolutely shows the racist menatlity. Sure there was applause through out, but at that particular moment in her speech had there not been any form of racism within the NAACP; you could have heard a PIN DROP, but no, that was not the case. The left will argue that of course there will be applause, it's part of the interaction between speaker and audience. True, but in this case it is not just interaction, but approval of her statement...she hadn't made her point yet, she was working up to it, but still her audience was pleased when she said she didn't help the farmer because he was white. If a Conservative or Tea Party member had said that very thing; do you not think people would be ALL over them regardless of the Context? They would. You can count on it.

As for Mr. Graham. Please go away. You are an idiot. I listened to you speak about supporting the nomination of Kagan. You wouldn't have nominated her but you will support her nomination because the president nominated her? If she isn't good enough for YOU to nominate, why is she good enough for someone else to nominate?  BTW Mr. Graham, just because the President nominates her does not make her qualified, experienced or unbiased.  She is but another puppet for Obama.  She has only limited experience as a lawyer and ZERO as a judge, but yet some how she will make a wonderful life long appointed Supreme Court Judge?  A liberal who will disregard the Constitution every chance she gets and who will support the government when it wishes to impose laws for which it does not have the authority to impose.  Good JOB Lindsey, now please, Go away! I think the far left liberals are calling you home.

Cell Phones and Driving...yes I'm hitting it

I left campus for lunch today to grab a bite to eat and get back to work.  On my way I encountered a Cell Phone Driver.  Let me set up the scene for you.

I am on a 6 lane divided road (no not a highway, but a busy road in town). Speed limit is 40 mph (average speed is generally 45-50mph. This is based on 8 years of driving this particular stretch of road almost 2 times a day).

I come to a stop light.  I am the 5th car in line.  Light turns green.  I wait, I wait, I wait... cars in front of me are not moving. The lane next to me has already had 3 cars go through the intersection, but no, I'm still stopped.  ????  Count to 10... ok, now slowly I can start moving forward....the truck in front of me, moves to the next lane over, so now I am 4th in line behind the "lead" car.  Car's 2 & 3 also jump into the next lane so now it is just me and a big white suburban driving down the road going 25 mph...remember, the posted speed is 40 mph.  This is annoying, but I chill out and decide to stay put since my turn is just up the road.  The Suburban starts drifting close to the next lane.  With a jerk, it comes back into our lane.  Immediately I think, "humm, wonder whats wrong, it's not like we are moving at warp speed or anything".  We continue on, cars going around us, flying by at the posted speed.  Then it hits me.  I bet my next 10 paychecks this person is talking on their cell phone!  So, in order to know that I am right, I decide to follow the suburban to see if I can get a glimps of the driver.  Suburban turns right into a parking lot...not a smooth turn mind you but rather one made with both hand probably occupying some other task and only intermittenly turning the steering wheel. I turn behind it. Then come to a stop because in the middle of the drive/parking lot road, the suburban stops....hummm... ok, definitely a cell phone driver... I sit patiently for a few moments and then the Suburban moves again, ever so slowly.  It turns left to go down another parking lot road, I follow.  It slooooowwws waaaayyyy down at a turn to go down a parking aisle...driver must have changed their mind and the suburban rolls forward....inching a long, the right blinker goes on.  I am not fooled.  I know that the chances of that vehicle actually turning right are about 1 in a billion... I'd have better luck winning the lottery.  Sure enough, blinker goes off and the Suburban continues......whoops, nope don't want to turn there either (after partially turning down the next aisle).  I decide to actually complete the turn for the Suburban, then come back up another aisle so I can get a good look at the driver as they come down the aisle.  I am not speeding. I get to the next aisle and see the suburban just making the turn down the one after it, so I go one past it.  As we approach each other on separate aisles, the Suburban pulls into a parking space, I slow down and drive right past the front and get a perfect view of the driver; happily chatting away on her cell phone.  I WAS RIGHT! With great effort and self control I refrain from pulling in behind the suburban, wait for the driver to exit the car, approach her and SOUND OFF about how not only should she not be driving and talking on a cell, but she obviously flunked Drivers Ed (assuming she ever took it).  My blood was boiling.

Why? Well, other than the obvious reason that she sat at a red light that had turned green, was going 15 mph below the posted limit, almost drifting into the adjacent lane, choppy turning, stopping in the middle of the drive, almost turning, not quite turning and just being an overall bad driver... watch this video... .
Drive Safely!
you don't have to watch all of it, say, 45 seconds of it, and you will understand my anger over distracted drivers aka: cell phone drivers.

Every person who drives or will be driving any time soon should watch this video. 
Don't txt and drive, don't talk and drive, don't do anything but DRIVE! Pay attention to what you are doing, what the cars around you are doing and be on the look out for sudden danger.

Be Safe, Drive Safe.
Thank you!

doggietruths: Can you help? Is so here is how...

I'd risk death...

Pinal County
*short article w/a video.

“The men say they're tired, hungry and thirsty. The deputy gives them water. The men say they understand the risks of crossing illegally but they say there are no jobs in Mexico and they need to feed their family. All of them have crossed before; some were heading to California, others to North Carolina.”

No jobs in Mexico? Well look around Mr. Illegal; there aren’t a hell-of-a-lota Jobs here either! Say, why don’t you head to Michigan where there is 13.2% UN-Employment or say Nevada? I’m sure Harry Reid will help you find a job. He doesn’t care if Legal Americans have jobs or not, but you, for you he will help find you one. One that surely no legal American would do.

These aliens were not staying in Tucson, some were headed all the way to North Carolina (at 10% unemployment as of July 20, 2010). Do you still think illegal immigration is just a problem for the Southern border states? If you haven’t noticed; illegals permeate every sector of this country. Every crack and crevasse is loaded with them.

The article states that these Illegal Aliens would rather die than stay in Mexico? What does that tell you about Mexico? Why would any American Governor, Senator, and President etc. consider Mexico a friend and ally? Texas Governor, Rick Perry, has said that Mexico is a strong friend of Texas. I guess that means he likes having criminals in his state. Isn’t he up for re-election? I believe so. Unfortunately the only other candidate is a Liberal Democrat so that isn’t much better. At least with him you already know where he stands and do not expect him to support any state who wants to enforce Federal Law.

We go to war to help the people of other countries, to protect our people from clear and present danger. But we won’t do what it takes to protect ourselves from real and present danger to our South? What is wrong with this picture? Are we SO dependant upon Mexico that our legislatures in Washington are afraid to anger them? If so then we have given Mexico far too much power over America; not unlike our dependence of oil has given power to foreign countries. How did Mexico become so important to America that we will look the other way when its citizens pour illegal drugs, weapons and criminals onto our streets, when our very own government will sue one of its very own states as a rebellion for cracking down on what they perceive as a threat to Mexico? Are they so blind to see that the border of Mexico is a threat to us! That not only are drugs, guns, criminals coming across our border almost freely, but terrorists (non-Mexican) are also coming across. There is a war on our border; unfortunately we are not only fighting illegal aliens that are coming across, but our own government who supports them and their illegal entry into this country.

Seems to me this current administration could care less about what the American people want. Current Rasmussen polls state that 70% of Arizona voters approve of the Arizona law. According to the Sunshine News ( “A new poll reveals Floridians are strongly opposed to President Barack Obama’s administration suing Arizona for its measures of cracking down on illegal immigration -- and want a similar law in Florida.” This is was posted on July 21, 2010 (, but yet the DOJ feels compelled to file a baseless lawsuit against the State of Arizona. Not only that but is allowing other countries (i.e. Mexico) to join them. I ask you, what is wrong with this picture.

November 2010 can’t come quick enough (no I didn’t get the date wrong).

An Important read...

Democrat or Republican.... it doesn't matter.  Please take a moment to read this article

Healthcare rationing on the Horizon

From the article:

"Asked about Dr. Berwick’s “biggest liabilities,” Barrasso tells Newsmax: “Just look at his quotes. This is someone who said, ‘I’m a romantic about the National Health Service [in Britain]. I love it.’ He said the decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open. "

The decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open????  Really?  Is this what those of you  (in the minority BTW) who were in favor of the Obama Care bill thought you were getting?  I knew it was coming and I know it is going to get worse.

It is important that as Americans we know what is coming down the pipe.

Another response from Best Friends

Please see this link

thank you

The response of Best Friends

Here is the Best Friends response to the Nathan Winograd article regarding Oreo's law.
Make your own decision.  I am deferring mine until I dig a little deeper.

BFAS Statement on Oreos Law

Irregardless of if BFAS did or did not have legitimate reasons for not supporting the law; the bottom line is this:
We all want to save the lives of Animals. 

I am shocked and saddened....

I have not yet processed the information, I do not yet have a valid opinion to post, but I am unnerved by the blog post by Nathan Winograd.  I will admit; I had no idea of the depths this ran.
I did not know Best Friends did not really support Oreo's law.  Is that really true?  How can an organization that fought to save the pitties from M. Vick; not support Oreo's Law?  Oreo's law: prevent the needless killing of animals when there is alternative rescue available.

Here is the 1st article Nathan wrote:
Where is Best Friends

If you are unfamiliar with Oreo and Oreo's law, here is a snyopsis of the situation:
Oreo's Story

In New York City, a one-year old dog named Oreo was intentionally thrown off a sixth floor Brooklyn roof top by her abuser. Oreo sustained two broken legs and a fractured rib. Oreo also appears to have been beaten in the past—several of the neighbors in the building where Oreo lived reported hearing the sounds of the dog being hit. The ASPCA nursed her back to health and arrested the perpetrator. They also dubbed her the “miracle dog.”
The miracle was short-lived. According to the ASPCA, when Oreo recovered from her injuries, she started to show aggression. After a series of temperament tests, the ASPCA made the decision to kill her. The New York Times reported the story the day before Oreo’s scheduled execution. A sanctuary in New York offered to take Oreo, explaining that they had experience rehabilitating dogs deemed aggressive and offering her lifetime care, including plenty of socialization and walks if the rehabilitation was not successful.
They were ignored, hung up on and lied to. And the ASPCA chose to kill the dog instead. That afternoon, Oreo laid dead, the victim not of her former abuser, but of an overdose of poison from a bottle marked “Fatal-Plus,” at the hands of a shelter bureaucrat.
Following the furor that erupted over Oreo’s killing, New York State legislators introduced a bill to prevent animals from being killed by shelters when there is a lifesaving alternative offered by rescue groups.

Oreo's law was defeated recently and just today I read Nathan's blog about Best Friends and their position on the law...per Nathan.  I have not yet read a statement from Best Friends, but I will seek it out and see what they have to say.
I hope this is some awful misunderstanding of intent and position.  I pray the place I have come to love did not in fact sell out to politics.  The place that championed for the lives of the fighting dogs when so many other "groups" were calling for their death, did not let the animals and rescuers down.

Obama thinks we are all Stupid! Really, he does!

Check out this link: NASA head must have misspoke???

Really? Seriously? What the hell!

I could have sworn Gibbs backed up the comment just the other day and now since it didn't sit well its; "oh he must have misspoke."    I don't think the head of NASA would misspeak about such things... Do you?
I mean seriously here people.  When is it going to end?  I can tell you; as soon as OBAMA is OUT of the White House - - a place he never should have gotten with in 1,000 ft. of (unless he was taking one of the White House Tours).

Obama must really think all Americans are absolute morons.

FOOLS and IDIOTS; are you one?

It is now official, the Department of Justice has filed suite against the State of Arizona because of the recent law signed by Governor Brewer relating to Illegal Immigration. Commonly referred to as S.B. 1070.

I have read the law, I'd be a fool and an idiot to argue for or against it if I had not in fact read it. So does this mean that I am calling Eric Holder, Obama and others fools because they didn’t actually read the law before criticizing it? Of course I am because THEY ARE! Do you differ in that opinion? My first question would be “why"? My second would be to ask if you too are a fool and or an idiot (this would be a rhetorical question).

Still disagree? Well then let’s look at it this way. Let’s take emotions out of it and look at it objectively or better yet, change up the scenario but leave the basic premise the same.
Let's take our buddy Tom.  Tom is an otherwise fairly intelligent person.  He has an education, he has a job, pays his bills, taxes and takes care of his family. Tom buys an airplane. Tom is not a pilot. Tom wants to fly the plane anyway. He tries and he crashes. Tom is dead and the plane is destroyed.

Is Tom a fool and or an idiot?

If you answered NO to that question then please stop reading now because there is no hope for you.

If you answered maybe….you can keep reading there might be hope.

If you answered “probably”, “most likely” or “absolutely” or anything else in the affirmative then you can keep reading.

Tom is absolutely a fool and an idiot because you cannot fly a plane unless you know how to fly a plane! Just like you can’t criticize a law if you’ve never read it. Just like you can’t comment on a book you’ve never read! Ok so you can comment but you’d be basing your opinion on hearsay and everyone knows that is not admissible in court; which leads us back to the point, Obama and friends who criticized the AZ law are FOOLS and IDIOTS because they criticized the Arizona law before ever reading it. I guess it was just too many pages. There are 17 pages to the final amended version. Have you seen the Health Care Bill/law, load of crap, unconstitutional bull shit and how many pages IT has??? I digress, I’m sorry. Let me get back to the subject at hand.

Would you publicly announce your opinion on a book that you have never read simply based on what 3rd parties heard from 3rd parties? If so, stop reading now, there is no hope for you.

For everyone else, please keep reading; there is hope for you.

As of today it is official; the DOJ has filed suit against the State of Arizona for the passing of S.B. 1070.
Can you tell me why and or what is so wrong about that sentence?  If not, please keep reading!

Why would the DOJ target Arizona and not say Oklahoma?  Oklahoma you ask, well why would they go after Oklahoma.  They would go after Oklahoma because it has passed illegal immigration law similar to that of Arizona.  You can check it out here:
HB 1804

Read it and compare it to Arizona's S.B. 1070.

Or maybe the DOJ should look at California? California! Yes really California.  Check out Penal code 834b... it's all there

Ca Penal Code 834b

Have you heard about Georgia's SB 529?  Here read it for yourself at:
SB 529 Georgia

I'm thinking Georgia better watch out for the DOJ as well, but they are probably safe.  Why?  Simply put it is because they do not share a border with Mexico and their border does not provide a gateway into the US. 

Why don't you ask yourself why the government has gone after Arizona and not these other states (there are probably more, I'm sure there are but I've not had time to research them all)?
What is so bad about the Arizona law and not the California law?  Go back and read the California Penal Code 834b and then read the Arizona SB 1070.  See any major differences? If not, read it again.  They are there!
California requires police to inquire as to your "status".  Contrary to wide false reporting, the Arizona SB1070 does not.  If you disagree, please copy and paste the language in to a comment and prove me wrong.

Take a good hard look at this situation my fellow Americans.  This is blatantly not about Arizona's SB 1070.  It is about keeping the border open.  Think about it, study and understand the reasons why Obama and friends want to fight AZ.  It's all right there in front of us.
Do I need to explain it?

FDA Warning Letter to Merrick!

FDA Warning Letter to Merrick

If you have a pet, you need to be aware of this.  Every day it seems it is getting harder and harder to find safe, quality food for our pets... most who consider their "pets" to be family memebers, as I do.

My dogs are not just four leggers with tails.  They are my buddies, my companions and the ones who bring me joy every single day.  My dogs do not know prejudice, hate or anger.  They know only one thing; they want to be with their human and they want all the belly rubs I can give.  Life is simple for them, but what they give in return is so much more.

Don't you think it is time we take a stand and demand better quality, safer food for our furry friends?  Isn't what we feed them just as important as what we feed ourselves?

Write to Merrick, write to your Congressman/woman...demand tighter controls over the pet food  industry.
For the LOVE of Our Pets!

Happy Birthday America`

A day late and a dollar short, but...

As our country faces some of the toughest, most challenging times, it is important that we take the time to remember those who fought and those who have died for our country and for our rights guaranteed under the constitution.  America, she is an awesome country.

God Bless everyone and God Bless the United States of America!

US v. Mexico; Mexico Winning with the help of Obama and Congress

It seems Obama is giving Mexico $310 Million in accordance to the Merida Initiative (help combat the drug cartels etc), but he will only give $135 Million for our border security/protection.  Why?

Lets compare what the funds will go towards.  Let's start with Mexico since they are getting the bigger really should be good!
Mexico’s $310 million (On top of the millions already spent/given) will go towards black hawk helicopters, communication equipment, surveillance aircraft, military and law enforcement training.

The US $135 million will go towards: 1,200 National Guard to be divided up between TX, AZ, NM and CA and 22 miles of fence repair.

The most National Guard personnel that will be at the AZ border at one time (for 120 days) will 500 and some change. It will start with a hundred, tier up and max at something like 524…that will sustain for 120 days, then it will start to taper off again.

In “defense” (I can’t believe I am even saying that word in connection to Obama) of Obama; the Merida Initiative was signed by Congress in 2008; HOWEVER, one would think that a President would allocate at least double that to secure and protect our own border.

Simply providing aid to Mexico and Central American countries without amplifying things on our side; won’t do much. Why is Congress so STUPID! This is not just Obama’s doing; this was in fact done while Bush was in office; under a Democratic rule though.

I hear today that Obama is now pushing for $500 million.....lets wait and see what happens.

The Question of Birthright Citizenship

The Question of Birthright Citizenship

This is a great article regarding the debate over Anchor Children. I too was under the impression that the 14th amendment allowed the children of illegal aliens to be US citizens if they are born on US soil....I was proven to be wrong and I couldn't be happier about it.

Abolishing the notion that illegals can have children here will "hopefully", but most probably deter many of those who come here and have babies.
The article states it perfectly at the end so be sure to read it all the way through.

Fair Pay for Illegals? Seriously?

So you come here illegally and then bitch about not getting paid fairly?  Amazing!

Worse than that is Hilda Solis" the Secretary of Labor: She's running an add that "whether documented or undocumented" workers are to be paid according to FLSA.

REALLY! What the hell? 

OK, maybe this is worse than that: Obama wants to use border security as a political tactic to get what he wants.....yeah, I'd say that man is looking out for the little guy.

What do I think about McChrystal's resignation and the appointment of Petreaus? Well, fine.  Do I think he should have resigned; not really, but who's to say I am not in the military so I can't pretend to know what that did in terms of his leadership ability.  Personally, I don't think it did anything but boost it.
Obama now totes Petraeus as qualified and competent and he has "complete confidence" in him.  Seriously? When did that happen.  Seems it wasn't that long ago you felt differently.

I have no faith in this President and I hope come November that Americans will stand up and say WE WILL BE HEARD! Obama is not our KING!

Take away his power.  Get this country back to what it is intended to be.  Where people are free to live and work.  Where people are not forced by the Government to enter into a contract with another private entity, where we are not taxed to the point of poverty, where our borders are secure, where our leader does not bow or apologize to foreign countries or rulers for "his" (stated lightly in reference to Obama) obnoxious country, were our President respects our rule of law and upholds the Constitution.

We do not need a President to "fundamentally change" America, we need a President that will stand strong against our enemies, encourage and allow private enterprise to grow and prosper and ensure that government is as it was intended to be a protector of this country, not a regulator over every inch of our lives.

God Bless America....I hope we can get her back.

California Penal Code....

As it pertains to Immigration laws similar to that of Arizona.  I don't make this up. It is as real as you are.

Calif.Penal Code: Immigration on a local level

834b. (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully

cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization

Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is

suspected of being present in the United States in violation of

federal immigration laws.

(b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected

of being present in the United States in violation of federal

immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the


(1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen

of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent

resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time

or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of

immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not

be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and

place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding

documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

(2) Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien

who is present in the United States in violation of federal

immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal

justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or

leave the United States.

Seems to me Mexico needs to sue California as well as Arizona.  What crock of crap.
Mexico is suing Arizona over their immigration law.  How ridiculous is that!  The fact that our own President probably supports it makes it even worse.
I know there are other states with similar laws.. Oklahoma for one and now Nebraska just amped up the voltage on restricting illegal aliens.....Not to mention the biggest one of all...our Federal Law.  Maybe Mexico should sue the Government because obviously they do not like our Immigration Laws...or better yet; lets sue THEM.

AWESOME NEWS! Judge blocked...

I realize that many people will see this differently, but personnally I believe this is the best thing possible for our people on the gulf. 

"Federal judge in New Orleans, Louisiana, blocks six-month federal moratorium on deepwater drilling in Gulf."

This is very good news! It gets people who are relying on these job's to get back to work; which is ALWAYS a good thing!

The gulf residents have been hurt enough.  The moratorium added insult to injury and this was a very good call by the Federal Judge!

I'm Tired...

Robert A. Hall is the actor who plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show.
****CORRECTION: This was not written by the same Robert Hall the Actor. According to Snopes they have similar names and therefore that is the confusion.  See the snopes report here:
Snopes: I'm tired...
Everything else is apparently true.  I posted it for the content because it is true for me (although I'm not 63). I very well could have written it. 
Note that per Snopes this was written on Mr. Hall's blog in 2009... LONG before the AZ law brought Illegal Immigration to the forefront.******************

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America .

"I'm 63 and Im Tired"

by Robert A. Hall

I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.

I'm tired of being told that "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.

I think it's very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

I'm tired of a news media that thinks Bush's fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama's, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush's military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn't vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore's, and if you're greener than Gore, you're green enough.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don't think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I'm tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military.... Those are the citizens we need.

I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement- handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I'm tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I'm tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the "Illinois Combine" of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama's cabinet.

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter.

Balance - a good one


God was missing for six days.
Eventually, Michael, the archangel,found him, resting on the seventh day..
He inquired, "Where have you been?"
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds,
"Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.. I'm going to call it Earth and it's
going to be a place to test Balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael,
"I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth.
"For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth,
while southern Europe is going to be poor.
Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a
continent of black people.

Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries..
"This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"
"That’s the State of Texas , the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from the State of Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world.
They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked,

"But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance.."
God smiled, "There’s Washington, DC.
Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

Joke for the day; not for the Illegal Immigrant sympathizers

WARNING: if you sympathize with illegal aliens then please do not read this.  I thought it was funny, you might not.  Thank you.

The blue pigeon

The mayor of Phoenix was very worried about a plague of pigeons in Phoenix . He could not remove the pigeons from the city. All of

Phoenix was full of pigeon poop. The people of Phoenix could not walk on the sidewalks, or drive on the roads. It was costing a fortune to keep the streets and sidewalks clean.

One day a man came to City Hall and offered the Mayor a proposition. 'I can rid your beautiful city of its plague of pigeons without any cost to the city. But, you must promise not to ask me any questions, or you can pay me one million dollars to ask one question.

The mayor considered the offer briefly and accepted the free proposition.

The next day the man climbed to the top of City Hall, opened his coat, and released a blue pigeon. The blue pigeon circled in the air and flew up into the bright blue Arizona sky. All the pigeons in Phoenix saw the blue pigeon and gathered up in the air behind the blue pigeon. The Phoenix pigeons followed the blue pigeon as she flew southward out of the city.

The next day the blue pigeon returned completely alone to the man atop City Hall.

The Mayor was very impressed. He felt the man and the blue pigeon had performed a wonderful miraculous feat to rid Phoenix of the plague of pigeons.

Even though the man with the pigeon had charged nothing, the mayor presented him with a check for 1 million dollars and told the man that, indeed, he did have a question to ask and even though they had agreed to no fee and the man had rid the city of pigeons, he decided to pay the 1million just to get to ask ONE question.

The man accepted the money and told the mayor to ask his ONE question.

Do you think the Mayor is going to ask how the blue pigeon led all the pigeons away?

Do you think the Mayor is going to ask where all the pigeons went?

Do you think He is going to ask where the man got the blue pigeon?


The mayor asked:

"Do you have a blue Mexican?"

LOL!!!!!!!  Yup, I think it's funny after reading it again.

What you can do and what I'm SICK of

First order of business:  You, the American people, need to get your voting skills honed and come November you need to get out there and take back this country!
Get the left liberal Democrats out of office and replace them with thinking conservatives!  I'd say it doesn't matter if the conservative is a Democrat or Republican, but I don't believe there is a conservative Democrat out there... it is a mythical creature.

Secondly, but not lastly, I am SICK to DEATH of the bullshit and lies coming from that guy in the White House.  He bold faced lied to us on 6/15/10, he thinks we are stupid and he is out to ruin this country.
It was sickening last night to watch his address from the Oval Office.  At the end, I could see how it pained him to say God Bless the United States of America.  He damn near choked on the words.  This man needs to go and needs to go NOW! 

The BP oil disaster... first off Mr. "President", it is NOT a damn OIL SPILL!  It is a disaster born out of another disaster where hard working people lost their lives. This happened due to a lack of responsibility from both government regulators and those in charge at BP....I suppose it was the "we'll look the other way BP since you contribute so much to our liberal causes".  That is what sealed the fate of those killed.

Do I want BP to pay and be held accountable... You bet your ass I do.  What I don't want to see is the oil drilling shut down  (deep water or shallow) for good or for BP to go bankrupt because the government reached in and grabbed them by the throat and strangled them with the "fund" ... what a load of crap that is!  Government has NO right to make the demands on BP that they are.  I hope BP stands up for itself and takes a good hard look at who they consider to be friends.

If BP goes under have you considered the impact that will have on us and on the people directly affected by the disaster?  Think about it for a minute and then tell me if you want to boycott BP.  Think about what the end result will be if BP goes bye bye.  I can tell you that it will not be good for ANYONE.  It will be very very bad.  You think it is bad now?  Just wait because if BP and other oil co. go down; we go down with them....sadly much to the delight of our current "president" and his cronies.

I am all for Green Energy, clean energy and a lessening dependence on oil both foreign and domestic, but the reality is that we are where we are and there is nothing out there that can take the place (even on a small level) of what we need oil for and until there is the fact remains that we NEED drilling, we NEED companies like BP and we NEED to ensure they are under the tightest scrutiny to ensure that safety measures work, back up plans are in place and will actually work and that there is a specific detailed plan of action for the worse case scenario times 10.

Until we are able to decrease our dependency on oil there is no place for us to go.  So get after it and lets find a way to decrease our oil need.  Until that time we better be damn sure we have our arms around the oil drilling and safety of it. 

Driving down oil drilling will be cutting our nose off despite our face.
Think rationally, think clearly, leave emotions out of it.  Consider the big picture, the consequences and the devastating impact on this entire country the next time you scream for the death of BP and off shore drilling.

Mr. Illegal the rest of the story....

Get a load of these numbers:

In 2005 - there were 55,322 incarcerated illegal aliens studied by the Government Accountability Office
97% had more than one arrest and an astonishing 26% had over eleven arrests
Each illegal alien in the study averaged 13 offenses and 24% of those offenses were for drug crimes. About 12% were for murder, robbery, assault and sexually related crimes. 21% of offenses were immigration offenses.

Now, look at this information:

According to ICE; at the end of fiscal year 2008, there were 557,762 fugitive alien cases left unsolved.

California's border counties incurred $79 million in emergency care for illegal aliens
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimated the medical cost of treating illegal immigrants in California in 2004 to be $1.5 billion. Today that figure would be much higher.
I obtained this information from the following article:
Illegal Immigrants are Career Criminals
It says all I wanted to say for me.

Secure Communities...good or bad?

Protest of Secure Communities

so this is a pilot program and 19 out of 22 illegals identified were classified as level 1 offenders...also known as Rapists and murderers... People have a problem with this?  Oh, no its the fact that family and friends will be caught up in it.. you know, those hard working honest criminals. 
So what they are saying is it is ok to deport high level criminals but those who are there for lessor crimes should not be deported....even though they are here illegally. Isn't that discrimination?  Isn't that what they are screaming at all the people who want secure borders; that we are racist and discriminating against them. 
I suppose this means that its ok if you are illegal and only commit a crime like say a mugging or some such thing.  Personnally, if you are illegal and you go through our jails, you go back to your country after serving your time and paying a fine.  We shouldn't discriminate against the higher level of criminal.

They are also claiming that this is a racist thing...not sure how a fingerprint does that.  Every criminal gets finger printed no matter how minor the crime.  That is not racist.  Every fingerprint will be sent to ICE; that is not racist. 
This arguement of theirs holds no water.

I fully support this action and I am not racist.  I am an American and I want our border secured! I want the illegals out and I'd like to see a slowing amount of incoming immigrants... I'll explain that in another post
