Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is

Guy is a genius.

His is the only plan I've heard where I would agree with amnesty for illegal aliens. 100% as long as the plan is followed as he details.

Genius, I say!

We MUST Run These Bums Out

There is no other appropriate title for this post. 62 U.S. Senators have committed a treasonous act against these United States. They voted to provide amnesty to at least 11 million law breakers. They voted to bankrupt this country by admitting huge numbers of low-skilled, high-maintenance (that means welfare) workers into this country.

At a minimum, they must be voted from office. If justice were to be served, they would be tried and convicted of treason, and hanged for their actions. That's what this country does to traitors.

Here is the roster:

Akaka (D-HI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bayh (D-IN)
Bennett (R-UT)
Biden (D-DE)
Bingaman (D-NM)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brownback (R-KS)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Carper (D-DE)
Chafee (R-RI)
Clinton (D-NY)
Coleman (R-MN)
Collins (R-ME)
Conrad (D-ND)
Craig (R-ID)
Dayton (D-MN)
DeWine (R-OH)
Dodd (D-CT)
Domenici (R-NM)
Durbin (D-IL)
Feingold (D-WI)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Frist (R-TN)
Graham (R-SC)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hagel (R-NE)
Harkin (D-IA)
Inouye (D-HI)
Jeffords (I-VT)
Johnson (D-SD)
Kennedy (D-MA)
Kerry (D-MA)
Kohl (D-WI)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Leahy (D-VT)
Levin (D-MI)
Lieberman (D-CT)
Lincoln (D-AR)
Lugar (R-IN)
Martinez (R-FL)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Menendez (D-NJ)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Murray (D-WA)
Nelson (D-FL)
Obama (D-IL)
Pryor (D-AR)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Sarbanes (D-MD)
Schumer (D-NY)
Smith (R-OR)
Snowe (R-ME)
Specter (R-PA)
Stevens (R-AK)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Warner (R-VA)
Wyden (D-OR)

There is even a passage in the bill that requires us to get Mexico's OK before building a fence on the border. Really. How in Gods name could an American senator agree to such a stipulation? They voted to enact a law which transfers part of their authority to a foreign power. That is treasonous.

The plan is clearly for The New World Order. What? You think that's hyperbole? How's this for you?
Section 113 (b)(3)(C)

...in exploring methods for Canada, Mexico, and the United States to waive visa requirements for nationals and citizens of the same foreign countries;
Sounds like the start of the development of Oceana (read Orwell's 1984 if you don't know what I'm talking about).

It goes on and on. Student loans. Government grants for the aliens to learn English. It's no longer called "amnesty", it's called "parole". Welfare eligibility. It is the single most revolting piece of legislation I have ever read.

If you truly love America, you have no choice but to do everything in your power to have these traitors removed from office.

It's time to walk-the-walk.


Here a section of Sentate Amendment 4089 which hands over our right to do as we please with our borders, and therefore, with our national defense:
(b) CONSULTATION REQUIREMENT.--Consultations between United States and Mexican authorities at the federal, state, and local levels concerning the construction of additional fencing and related border security structures along the United States-Mexico border shall be undertaken prior to commencing any new construction, in order to solicit the views of affected communities, lessen tensions and foster greater understanding and stronger cooperation on this and other important issues of mutual concern.

What I Learned While In Texas 

About Dallas, and Myself
This last item has me thinking real hard about a lot of things. I feel like if I keep up this pace, I'm going to die. Dead. The Long Dirt Nap.

Seriously. And it scares me. I just paid my first tuition bill for my oldest son (which was actually kind of cool - my boy is growing up), but I want to be around to see both of my kids grow and thrive and struggle and fail and persevere.

I have so much I want to do politically (I'm evaluating how to start a PAC) because I can't stand idly by as this country slips into a shit-hole like my state has done. But you can't do that if you're dead.

I've always worked to live, not lived to work, and I think it has served me well. But it seems as though the balance has shifted way too far towards the "work" side of the equation. My health has slipped because I no longer have time to exercise. I quit smoking nearly a year ago, but have put on 25 pounds, partially because of the lack of exercise. Not a good sequence of events.

I've got some thinkin' to do....

Headin' To Texas 

I'm on my way to a banking school being held over the next week at SMU, near Dallas. I've never been to Texas, so one of my co-workers who hails from those parts, clued me in:

Hmm. We'll see. Anyone out there have any tips for fun places to hit while we're in town? We're in class every day (including this weekend) from 8am to 5pm, but our nights are supposed to be free. I have an expense account.....

I'll see All Y'all later.....

All Nanny - All The Time

Although this site has morphed into a "stupid, oppressive AND nanny-ish government" site, it's origins were - as the name implies - aimed at the Nanny State. The practice of Big Government believing that it is better able to run our lives than we are ourselves.

As Acidman points out, the origins of the modern-day Nanny State goes back to the prohibition on smoking. Smoking in the office, in bars, in restaurants, etc. Sounded good at the time to a lot of people. "Second-hand smoke kills!" "Puts waitresses at undue risk." Blah, blah, blah. No consideration of letting the people decide with their feet and wallets if they want to work at, or patronize an establishment that allows smoking. Nanny Knows Best.

Look how that's morphed. Here in the Land of Fruits and Nuts - The People's Republic of California - some cities now have bans on smoking in your own car if there's a kid in there. There are bans on smoking in your own apartment. No smoking outdoors if it's within 50 feet of the building entrance. For God's sake, there are bans on smoking on the frigging beach!

Yet the sheeple just kept nodding and complying. "Yes, O Great and Powerful Oz. Your wish is our command." Nanny Knows Best. Of course, as in the smoking-ban example, we're getting Nanny-creep. As Nanny gains a toe-hold in our conscienceness, she wants to grow more, and faster. And we happily let her expand and bloat and control.

Shocking, I know.

Look what's happening now. New York "Let Nanny Wipe Your Ass" City is now going to force you to be healthy.
In mid-January, the city began legally requiring laboratories that do medical testing to report to the Health Department the results of blood-sugar tests for city residents with diabetes along with the names, ages, and contact information on those patients.

City officials are not only analyzing these data to assess patterns and changes in diabetes prevalence in the city, but are planning "interventions."
Interventions? INTERVENTIONS? This ain't the Dr. Phil show. Who the hell do they think they are? Under what twisted authority do they believe they have the power to do this? No twisted authority needed. They simply pass a law, and give themselves the power.
But given that diabetes prevention (through weight control) and management (through diet planning, exercise, monitoring, and medications) are matters of personal commitment and responsibility,
Very few Americans understand the concept of "personal commitment and responsibility". Even though we know Nanny can't do anything right, collectively, we allow more and more of our lives to be managed and limited by our Overseers.
... the disease cannot effectively be "solved" by government intervention that goes beyond educational programs.
And there's the rub. Nanny can't do ANYTHING - other than spend our money - effectively. We used to at least know how to make war effectively, but we even screw that up now. Just like here in the states, after we pound someone's ass into the sand, we somehow feel that "Nanny Urge" to "make everything right".

This process continues the insidious pattern of Nanny running a little bit more of our lives, and us becoming a little less willing (and able) to do so ourselves. We're living the Chinese proverb of A Death By A Thousand Cuts. You don't notice the little cuts as they happen. Then, one day you realize you're a bloody mess, but it's too late by then. You no longer have the strength to respond.

The article does not mention if this is aimed at all New Yorkers, or only those on public assistance - those whose medical expenses are being paid for by the State. Regardless, even if it is only targeting those on welfare, it will eventually creep into private health care because..... Nanny Knows Best.

Don't you feel much better now?! Yeah, me too....

PS: As an aside, if I lived in New York, I'd be finding out who proposed this law and who voted for it. I'd then make sure they were removed from office at the next election. But that's just me.


I Just Hate It When They Make Sense 

Well, DUH!
Oil prices are at a level where consumers reduce consumption voluntarily. The market will work if we let it. But as great as the market economy is, it cannot overcome a foreign policy that is destined to disrupt oil supplies and threaten the world with an expanded and dangerous conflict in the Middle East. And it cannot overcome a monetary policy destined to inflate our dollars into oblivion.
Want to know why you're paying three bucks a gallon for gas. Read here.

Ron Paul, is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) Congressman from Texas. In his instance, that is meant as a supreme compliment. He's actually a Libertarian, and is one of the few Congress-critters worth his salt.

Chavez: Illegal Alien Opponent? 

He Understood

As today's May Day marches proceed for the pro-Illegal Alien idiots, it might be a good time for these folks to learn about one of their most revered heroes, Cesar Chavez.

Yep, he of United Farm Workers (UFW) fame understood that a mass influx of cheap labor kept down the wages of his constituency. He understood the very simple tenets of Econ 101: More supply than demand depresses wages.

OK, class, all together now: Duh.
The emergence of a truly Latino-American leader like the young Chavez, one more interested in the economic advancement of his own American ethnic group than in identity politics, would be good for American Hispanics, good for other Americans, and good for Mexico as well. As former Mexican Foreign Minister Jorge G. Castaneda has admitted, the mostly unfenced border allows Mexico’s largely white ruling class to bleed off the discontented poor rather than make the fundamental reforms necessary to fix that dysfunctional country. Yet any of that is unlikely as long as the truth about Chavez is so little known.
In the later years of his life, he morphed from being a union organizer to an ethnic race-baiter like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But in his heyday with the UFW, he and his backers put the Minuteman Project to shame with their tactics and success in securing our borders.
Like today’s Minutemen, UFW staffers under the command of Chavez’s brother Manuel patrolled the Arizona-Mexico border to keep out illegal aliens. Unlike the well-behaved Minutemen, however, Chavez’s boys sometimes beat up intruders.
And liberals had brains back then, too.
In 1969, Chavez led a march to the Mexican border to protest illegal immigration. Joining him were Sen. Walter Mondale and Martin Luther King’s successor as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Ralph Abernathy.
Too bad the hispanics of today are being led around by their noses, like so many cattle being led to slaughter.
