We need this kind of justice

I wasn't positive that the new Iraqi government was working out until I saw the speed with which they execute their prisoners on death row. Can we please export some of that to our country?

Also their customer friendly attitude is nice

DMV: the only place left in the world where they don't accept a debit card as payment. Even I can take a debit card if you want to pay me that way. (through PayPal)

You could probably find some remote tribe on the Amazon and say "I'd like to buy that ceremonial spear" and they would reply "debit or credit?"

I just can't wait until government is running my healthcare. Can't wait...

Now I'm very angry.

Ok, I'm a law abiding citizen. All laws. Even stupid meaningless laws that I disagree with.

I'm also a computer nerd and that will factor in here.

One of the things that I worry about is the "next generation" getting desensitized to theft due to the "digital age." I get sick of hearing people talk about "sharing" music. Instead of walking into Fred Meyer and shoplifting a CD they simply make a copy from a friend. It's so common that many people don't even view it as a theft even though it is a felony.

I read a lot of tech sites. (A great compilation site that pulls headlines is the Daily Rotation. You can customize it to your taste.) Many argue that copyrights and ownership are a thing of the past and blah blah blah socialist garbage. I've read message boards where the "little guy" (aka the thief) makes bold assertations about how he can never be caught and will never stop "sharing" music, as if he is leading some sort of socialist revolution instead of just being a petty thief, too cheap to fork over $0.99 for a song.

I watch with great interest the tales of the RECORDING INDUSTRY (said in the same ominous tone that you would whisper HALLIBURTON) VS the poor innocent victims who only wanted to "share" some music.

And other than some serious snafus *cough* Sony *cough* I've also applauded the DRM (digital rights management) measures taken to protect intellectual property rights and copyright material... until now.

I just got a new computer. (I'll post the specs in the comments if any of you geeks are interested, it's good stuff.) I attempted to export my playlist from MusicMatch, a worthless piece of software that will never under any circumstances be installed on this uber machine, and it wouldn't let me due to the DRM.

Fine. I manually move the files over my network. One by freakin one. Fine. I then clicked a song, perfectly content to let Windows Media Player play it for the initial time. Denied. DRM says that I have to install MusicMatch (aka The Devil) on my new computer. It says that yes, I do own the music and have every right to copy it to another computer but sorry, I need MusicMatch installed anyways.

Now I'm a smart guy. It will probably take me .0002 seconds to find a program to strip the DRM content from these files so that I can play them with whatever player I want to. BUT WHY DO I HAVE TO?!?!?!?

I'll tell you why: because other people steal. I have to suffer because some of you are convinced that it's ok for you to take things while the rest of us pay for them.

I'm one of the good guys. I paid for these. I own them. But now I join the ranks of many authors of reputable sources (CNET and the like) who say that they too pay for their digital property but HATE the DRM nonsense. It's not stopping the 12 years olds on LimeWire, it's stopping the non-technical folks who pay their $0.99 and then want to move their music library to another computer.

I hope that all digital thieves get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and I hope that DRM stops trying to interfere with MY PROPERTY.

We're in a hole... let's dig our way out!

Governor plans capital projects
If Gov. Ted Kulongoski has his way, next year's legislative session will leave a lasting mark on Oregon in the form of new education buildings, railway station improvements, emergency radio towers and other construction projects totaling more than $3 billion.

The governor's proposal to borrow heavily to finance all those capital projects also could leave Oregon taxpayers with increased debt for years to come.

"You end up improving the infrastructure, you create jobs, and I think you improve the economy overall," he said. "So I think it's a win, win, win every way you look at it."

Who is going to pay all these government workers salaries when everyone is a government worker? How about get out of the way of private industry which will make it easier on bussiness and create jobs. That's a win win.

Jobs that Americans WILL do!

Cheating Americans With "Virtual" Laws
It was a bad week for the advocates of amnesty and guest worker.

On Tuesday (12-12), the Bush Administration finally cracked down, 20 years late, on a few thousand of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who are illegally employed in the United States. This crackdown on employers was promised by the Reagan amnesty of 1986 and now, 20 years later, the government is getting around to enforcing the law.

The feds arrested thousands of illegals who were working at Swift & Co. meat-processing plants under false Social Security numbers. Swift announced that it might have to shut down for lack of workers.

The media immediately opened the TV channels to pro-immigration activists who claimed that these arrests "prove" the need for "comprehensive" immigration legislation with a guest-worker plan. Au contraire. Wednesday's news (12-13) proved just the opposite.

Within hours of the news that 261 illegals had been removed from the Swift plant in Greeley, Colorado, American citizens lined up to fill the vacated jobs. The county employment agency received 230 job applications, of which 157 were specifically for Swift.

Please read the whole column. (In addition to showing the "guest worker" movement as the sham that it is, it also shows the Wal-Mart bashers clearly don't know what they are talking about either)

A great Christmas present to unemployed Americans would be the deportation of our illegally working criminal alien population. Imagine starting the new year with thousands of job opportunities opening up for America citizens who had a rough Christmas due to unemployment.

Where is your compassion for these American citizens you sick liberals and you sick Wall Street Journal Republicans? You would starve Tiny Tim so that Jorge Gonzalez, an illegal who stole the SSN of Tiny Tim's dad, can work here illegaly and send money back to Mexico.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all. Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days, been pretty sick. I hope that Santa brings you something nice.

RE: Bush's speech today

I have to say that I wasn't too impressed with our president today.

I'll pick on the part where he said that he supports an increase in the minimum wage (aka paying people more than they are worth) but to prevent it from hurting bussiness he would couple it with tax cuts. Great.

That just means that the taxpayers will fund the increased wages. Real republican of you Mr. President.

As for all this "evalutaion" stuff about Iraq, I really do fail to see why it took the democrats winning an election to make us "look at all the options." Were these options not there before the election? Shouldn't we be in a constant state of looking at various options for victory?

Speaking of tax credits

If you've ever given money to a political organization then you're probably receiving their end of year donation requests right about now. That's because Oregon (whether you agree with it or not) offers a polictical tax credit for individuals ($50) and couples ($100) for qualifying donations.

You decide: donate to your favorite interest group or let Teddy K. spend it.

I love Oregon Right to Life, Oregon Family Council, etc but there is one group that I think has accomplished so much and has a huge battle in the coming year: Oregonians for Immigration Reform.

We've shut down the Carousels, shed light on day labor sites, put up a billboard and much more. In 2007 we need to repeal Oregon's sanctuary law, stop drivers licenses (and driving priviledge cards) for illegals, and so much more.

Give it to OFIR to stop illegal immigration or give it to Teddy to spend on illegal aliens. You choose.

Fishwapper editorials love art... that taxpayers pay for

Cultural Trust good for you and Oregon
The Oregon Cultural Trust is a very good thing for individual tax payers and for Oregon. Your gift to the trust, of up to $500 for an individual or $1,000 for a couple filing taxes jointly, will earn an equivalent tax credit on your Oregon tax return. That is a very good deal.

Tax cuts for the rich!

State drops the ball with botched arts awards
The folks responsible for the snafu -- the Oregon Arts Commission and the governor's office -- say they really do value the arts. But this was a busy year, what with the governor's election and getting the budget ready. So they'll double up and give two years' worth of awards in 2007.

And talk about poor timing. This month, folks are making their year-end donations to arts organizations and, if they're tuned in, making matching grants to the Oregon Cultural Trust. It wouldn't hurt to have some razzmatazz from the Capitol to remind everyone that Oregon has a terrific arts scene.

Who cares?

Oregon on another top 10 list

Government Not Tracking Illegal Alien Crime Even As It Spirals Up
Operation Predator began on July 9, 2003, and resulted in 6,085 child predator arrests throughout the country - an average of roughly 250 arrests per month and eight arrests per day. While arrests have been made in every state, the most have occurred in these states: Arizona (207), California (1,578), Florida (255), Illinois (282), Michigan (153), Minnesota (190), New Jersey (423), New York (367), Oregon (148) and Texas (545).

250 arrests per month under this program which only targets serious offenders. This is taking into account the DUII's, the drugs, etc. For those of you who went to public school 250 arrests per month is roughly 8 arrests a day.

Was a child in your neighborhood a victim? Maybe one of you open border advocates would like to explain to the families of these children that in order to keep big labor (notice the ominous tone) happy we have to accept this culture of lawlessness that comes with the influx of illegal aliens.

It's time to stop importing criminals.

I'd sure like to call them something

The People's Republic of Multnomah County owes Dorothy English one million dollars. They denied her the ability to use her land and they need to compensate her for it. But Dorothy is 94 and they want to hold out until she dies.

Contact the Multnomah County commissioners and ask them why they are trying to wait for a sweet old lady to die so they can escape their responsibility.

But will it be as customer friendly as the DMV?

Oregon senator prepares universal health coverage plan
A dozen years after Congress rejected a Clinton administration plan for universal health care, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden is readying a proposal to provide health care coverage to all Americans through a pool of private insurance plans.

"Employer-based coverage is melting away like a Popsicle on the sidewalk in August," said Wyden, a Democrat and member of the Senate Finance Committee's subcommittee on health care.

The group, created in 2003 by legislation sponsored by Wyden and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, recommended that the government take steps to guarantee all Americans have basic health insurance coverage by 2012.

Now I'm not sure I can beat Wyden's "popsicle" comparison but I'd like to point out that we recently had an Oregonian whose drivers license was going to be suspended because someone with the same name got a ticket in New York.

He asked the DMV to correct this and they basically told him to go jump in a lake. When I think government I don't think customer service. God help us when when they are in charge of our health.

Go back to Mexico

Local Mexican community celebrates its patron saint
Worshippers spilled into the aisles and out the chapel door at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Prineville on Sunday, as members of the local Mexican-American community packed the pews to celebrate the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico.

"It's a real connection with their homeland because all of Mexico celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe," Greiner said. "It certainly connects them with their roots and their families back home."

At St. Joseph's on Sunday, Elias Villagomez said the events are important in helping Mexicans living in Oregon retain their cultural and religious heritage.

"For we Mexicans it is a great fiesta that we celebrate," Villagomez said. "We continue it so that the children will go on learning about our culture."

Just so we are clear on the semantics: Mexican = citizen of Mexico. The ironic thing here is that many American born, and therefore American citizens, refer to themselves as "Mexican." If you were to ask some American born child of an illegal alien, a child who has never even seen Mexico, if she/he considers himself/herself (notice the all inclusive genders, trying to be more tolerant) an American or a Mexican and my five pesos bets they say the latter.

Assimilation? I don't think so. If you want Mexican culture, complete with blatant corruption at every level of government, child rape being acceptable, lawlessness being acceptable, and a poor economy then please, GO BACK TO MEXICO!

Keep up the good work boys

I am so very pleased that lately my blog has been such a source of amusement to people who are "tolerant" and believe in "women's rights" (this is why they insult my wife and mother) and who are so technologically advanced that they have even mastered the art of copy and paste. (ctrl+c and ctrl+v) Wow. You guys are good.

To everyone who asks "how can you stop them from doing that" I would say "why would I want to?" It's pretty funny to me. I mean sure, I could delete their posts like Indymedia does to me or not allow them post comments like BlueOregon does to me (those paragons of free speech and tolerance) but I think it illustrates, far better than I ever could, the actual mentality of some on the far left.

Not all of them mind you. Kaelri, who is 15 or 16, disagrees with almost all of my positions and is a frequent commentor here but somehow he is able to show more maturity than most of the (I'm assuming) adults who use the clever repartee of insulting my mother/wife.

It's just their way of handling things. Some people call their senator or collect signatures and some little boys copy and paste things on my blog. It's their civic involvement and I'm glad that I can provide an outlet for their frustrations.

Imagine if this blog didn't exist and they had to insult people to their faces instead of anyonmously over the internet? Their fear would surely keep them securely hidden in their parents basements for all eternity.

But thanks to my blog I allow them a few fleeting moments of feeling like a tough guy. I'm here to provide a service to all my readers. Whether it's informing you of the next illegal alien protest, a news alert or just a forum where liberals can exercise their fantasies of being macho, this is going to continue to be a home for many.

Some special interest groups we need

With the ACLU in full attack mode on account of Jesus' birthday I think that it's time we formed some special interest groups that will actually stand up for Americans. Here are some suggestions:

"You Can Have My Christmas Tree When You Pry It From My Cold Dead Hands Association"

"National Organization for Women Belong in the Kitchen"

"American Molesting Children Is NOT A Civil Liberty Union"

"People for Eating, Wearing and Sitting on Animals"

"National Association for the Advancement of Straight White Christian Males"

Feel free to post your suggestions.

Another "Oregon only" boondoggle

Oregon Cultural Trust grows out of its challenging infancy
There was a time when people thought the Oregon Cultural Trust would have about $80 million socked away in an endowment by now and given away nearly $40 million to the state's arts, heritage and humanities organizations.

The reality has turned out to be something more modest: There is but $5 million in an endowment originally projected to reach $200 million by 2011.

And instead of nearly $40 million in grants, the trust has given out about $3.76 million.

But proponents of the trust, a landmark initiative still unmatched in any other state, still have something to crow about.

I love how our local media describe things that only Oregon is stupid enough to do. The Cultural Trust simply takes dollars that could otherwise go to public safety or schools and gives them to people who without government grants would probably be homeless. Can't imagine why no other state has a cultural trust.

What would we do without public art like this?

Nutjob two-fer

Rep. Cynthia McKinney Introduces Bush Impeachment Bill
In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney announced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.

The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment.


Germany Condemns Iranian Plan to Host Holocaust Conference
Germany condemned a planned Iranian conference on the Holocaust and summoned Iran's charge d'affaires to the Foreign Ministry, saying that attempts to question the Nazis' murder of Jews were "shocking and unacceptable."

The conference, scheduled for Sunday and Monday, was organized by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called the systematic killing of some 6 million Jews a "myth" and "exaggerated." Some 67 foreign researchers from 30 countries are scheduled to attend the two-day meeting.

The Iranian president has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," and the Tehran conference appeared to be part of Ahmadinejad's public campaign against the Jewish state.

Hey Iraq Study Group: you have suggested that we work hand in hand with the new Hitler. You have emboldened him, encouraged him and now you want to give him a massage. Future generations are going to look back at you in disgust knowing that you allowed whatever future atrocities that the new Hitler is going to bring to the world.

I guess "never again" doesn't mean anything to the pompous, self-righteous, self-serving, worthless politicians that we send to Washington.

He speaks for everyone I guess

Native teen speaks out to spur sensitivity
A 17-year-old member of the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz on Thursday asked that the Oregon Board of Education require high schools to avoid mascots offensive to Native Americans

Hold it right there. Are all Native Americans (a loose term in my book) offended by the same thing? Every single one? Or does this kid want mascots that offend him banned?

Brad Victor, an Indian Education Programs specialist with the Oregon Department of Education, said he admired Butler's "courage to personally face the state board of education." Victor said 16 Oregon schools use Native-themed mascots whose behavior and dress are offensive.

Thankfully we have Victor at the ODE to step in a qualify what's offensive. So that's two people...

Do these people not realize that naming a team the "Braves" is actually a compliment? A symbol of strength and power could only offend the sissified "boys" that our public schools have created.

I'm going to miss my rapist excusing nemesis

Mexico's Oregon envoy
[Fernando Sanchez Ugarte] takes Cabinet post Mexico's consul general in Oregon has accepted a Cabinet position under new President Felipe Calderon.

Sanchez has served as consul general in Portland since October 2004.

Fernando has provided many hours of amusement for me. The look on his face every time he sees me at a protest gives me a warm, squishy feeling inside. It's a look of "not him again..."

But even though he was on the other side of the illegal alien issue I think that he helped us out. Who can forget the time when he suggested that rape was just a "cultural clash." (profile in pictures at that link)

We all should wish him well at his new post. Email him at and make sure you tell him I said "hi" and that I look forward to causing his replacement many headaches.

Maybe when illegal aliens take teacher's jobs...

Looking at the September unemployment numbers (most recent available on the website) two things stick out.

First you have this:

"Oregon’s seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll employment rose by 3,900 jobs in September."

"In September, two major industries – government (+2,500) and professional and business services (+2,400) – had seasonally adjusted job gains of more than 2,000."

So government was the biggest "industry" that was hiring and it taxpayers are funding more than half the new hires in the month of September. Nice.

The other number from September is this one:

"In September, 90,938 Oregonians were unemployed..."

Rewind to earlier in the year and we have the same guy who prepares the unemployment reports saying this:

"While we don't have data at the city level, we have been able to estimate that 70,000 to 88,000 unauthorized immigrants were working or looking for work (i.e., in the labor force) in Oregon in 2005."

Now forgive my public school math but 90,938 > 88,000 right? So our fellow citizens are looking for work but can't find it because they are squeezed out by enough illegal alien workers that they amount to more than our unemployed.

Maybe if we call them "guest workers" it will help our fellow citizens get jobs.

Saturday protest pics

I wasn't able to make the day labor protest this last saturday since I had some prior commitments with the scouts but I do have pictures and video! (which I will spread out over several posts since I have lot's of CD's to go through.

I will fill in narrative and comments but keep in minds that I wasn't there.

Sign that talks about "trust"... check.
Mask to hide identity... check.
No sense of irony... check.

Quite a crowd. The National Lawyers Guild (communist organization) really knows how to turn them out. They are the ones in the green hats.

Ok, blogger have some serious problems uploading pictures. Will try some more this evening once I have had a chance to really go through them.

We don't like the competition

Oregon Library Introduces Therapy Dogs to Help Children Read
The Salem Public Library in Oregon has launched a unique initiative this month. Amidst the rushing around and stress that typically accompany the holiday shopping season, parents and caregivers can take their children to the pet-reading program at the library.

However not everyone is excited about the new reading program. "We believe that if you support these mutts then you are helping to ruin public education" said OEA president Larry Wolf. "Instead of focusing on the fact that we can't seem to get kids to read at their grade level in public schools why don't you just give us more money?"

But parents are cautiously optimistic. "My child has been going to public school for 6 years and all he ever came home with was lice. We're glad that finally our child will have someone help him to read who doesn't have approximately 1/3 of the year off."

Governor Kulongoski was quick to denouce the reading program as "ineffective" saying that "I believe that finding a stable funding source for the teachers union is the best way to teach childrent to read."

When asked about this picture Kulogoski attempted to distance himself from Hershey the dog by saying that they had a "working relationship" but he "doesn't support his political views."

Musings so random you'll think I've gone nuts

Love the new website. Especially the pink tones... really makes you look effeminate Teddy.

Of course front and center is an "Enjoy the holiday choirs at the Capitol" story. Can't say Christmas, no sir. Unfortunately the webmaster seems to have some sort of politically correct terrets syndrome since when you mouse over the picture of the Christmas tree the caption actually calls it a Christmas tree! How offensive.

Even funnier, the actual file name of the picture calls it a "december tree."

Now with absolutely no sense of irony the Oregon Department of Education has showed us what they really see when they look at a school house:

The actual file name from the ODE website it moneyhouselarge. Now all we need is little dollar signs representing children walking around outside...

We can call this "the house that unions built."

In other "they spend out tax dollars so well" news I'm glad to report that DHS has created "diversity badges" for their receptionists.

"These magnetic backed badges are worn by bilingual reception staff to identify them to clients who do not speak English or would rather speak in their native language."

If you would rather speak in your native language then why don't you go back to your native country?

Moving on, I'd like to point you to a great website where they share my sentiments about the Imams threatened boycott. Please, Muslims, boycott the airlines, we won't try to stop you.

Sometimes you have to be legal... sometimes

Note: Certain programs at OHCS may have more limiting definitions of a farmworker than that above, such as a requirement of being a citizen or legal permanent resident, or excluding aquaculture work.

This statement is evidence that Oregon's "regular" definition of farmworker does include illegal aliens. Only "certain programs" require actually being here legally.

This would be like saying that when you owe taxes they require a "payment" and in this case the limited definition of "payment" means that the money can't be counterfeit. It's just nonsensical.

Memo to law enforcement: don't arrest anyone ever for any reason

This morning Google news has 310 news stories about Portland's own Brandon Mayfield getting $2 million in taxpayer money to settle a lawsuit.

The lesson here is: it doesn't matter how concrete the evidence may seem, don't arrest anyone, especially a Muslim after a terrorist attack. Hesitate. It's far better to let someone get away than offend someone whose own fingerprint expert says that their clients prints were on the bomb material.

Dear democrats: take care of my needs

With democrats sweeping victories in the last election I have come to accept that government will be growing in some ways. Democrats are itching to start providing some of our "basic needs" at taxpayer expense.

The Washington state democrats say that "A caring community provides a safety net of social services to meet all people's basic needs..."

I am therefore urging all Washingtonians to carefully review the following chart of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs:

Note that "water" is included in one of the foundation blocks to this pyramid of "basic needs." I would urge all of you to copy and submit your water bill to your nearest elected democrat so that this need may be satisfied. You will also note that "sex" is a part of this block. (also excretion but if you've ever used a public restroom you will gladly go without government providing this need)

Next we have a "safety" category that includes safety of property. I am anxiously waiting for the democrat legislatures around the country to pass bills restricting the kelo property grabbing decision.

Next up is "love/belonging." I'm hoping for a creation of the State Department of Matchmaking to find me a taxpayer funded friend. Also we have many single people out there on the dating scene. Since you are simply looking to fill one of your "basic needs" I would recommend that the cost of your dinner out be tax deductable.

Imagine how many Assistant Compliment Supervisor II's we can hire to take care of my self-esteem. I'm not saying that I need a PERS recipient to follow me around showering me with praise all day... several times a week will be sufficient.

The top part of the pyramid is going to be the most difficult and will probably require a Department of Self-Actualization with many branches such as the Office of Creativity.

I have so many needs...

Run for your lives! The sky is falling!

It's that very special time of year again. No, not Christmas season. The time when I absolutely refuse to watch local news on the tv.

This is because every snowflake (and possibly some white lint) is treated like a blizzard. And God help us if some snow actually sticks on the ground! Wow, then it's time to don those (fill in the network color) parkas and rush out and actually show us what snow looks like! Yes, the intrepid reporter will, without fail, point to and actually pick up some snow to show us, the ignorant viewer.

Yes I know that snow is good for ratings, people want to find out if schools are going to be closed (they're run by unions, of course they are closed) or if you will be able to get to work. (unless you work for Dianne Linn you are expected to show up if you want to get paid)

But please, spare me the drama.

Random musing of the day

You know what irritates me? Going to the store and seeing a stroller with a 5 year-old in it. The kid can obviously walk but for some reason the parent(s) allow him to be pushed around like a baby.

The only thing worse is if the kid has a pacifier in his/her mouth.

So please, if that's you, stop damaging your child. Take the pacifier, kick him out of the stroller and make him walk like a big boy. In fact, to make up for the years of pampering you should probably make him carry a backpack with a rock in it and occasionaly make him stop and do push-ups.

Portland citizen in the spotlight

Federal Appeals Court to Hear Patrice Lumumba Ford Case
Patrice Lumumba Ford's 18-year sentence will be reviewed by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on December 4 in Portland, Oregon. Ford received national media attention as part of The Portland Six, who were accused of being a "terrorist cell" in 2002. Ford's new lawyer, Shaun McCrea of Eugene, will argue that the sentencing guidelines for "treason" were erroneously applied in her client's case.

And the libs are still declaring them innocent. It almost seems like a sad case of a victim defending his/her own attacker.

Hopefully the debate will be in English

An OFIR member in Eugene alerts us about a forum on immigration, to be held at Lane Community College in Eugene on November 28 from 7:30 PM to 9 PM in Building 19, Room 257.

The title of the forum is "The Politics of Immigration: Confronting our past, constructing a future." Jim Garcia, Chicano/Latino Student Program Coordinator at Lane Community College is the sponsor. Thus far, he has invited as speakers an immigration lawyer and Mike Samonoa, ethnic studies professor at Lane to represent the open-border point of view and Springfield city councilor Dave Ralston, who opposes illegal immigration and who will speak for immigration controls and restrictions.

Lane Community College is located at 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene OR 97405. The telephone number is 541-463-3000. Website:

I know that Rick Hickey will be attending. It would be great for more people to show up and support the position that "illegal is illegal." (something so simple that politicians can't quite get it)

The day after

Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving, you know what that means... no not the biggest shopping day of the year, it's when the ACLU, PFAW, and company really ramp up their efforts to keep Christmas from being mentioned anywhere, anytime.

"Oh Daniel, you're being paranoid, there is no 'war on Christmas'" you say. Uh huh, that's what I love about liberals, they try to make huge societal changes while at the same time insisting that nothing is going on. (which has nothing to do with the fact that they need sweeping supreme court decisions to make all these non-changes)

The biggest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. Don't let people try to convince you that Christmas isn't being excluded from the public square.

Stereotype... or a description of the suspect

What Can I Do to Make Your Flight More Uncomfortable?
Six imams removed from a US Airways flight from Minneapolis to Phoenix are calling on Muslims to boycott the airline. If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether.

The idea that a Muslim boycott against US Airways would hurt the airline proves that Arabs are utterly tone-deaf. This is roughly the equivalent of Cindy Sheehan taking a vow of silence. How can we hope to deal with people with no sense of irony? The next thing you know, New York City cab drivers will be threatening to bathe.

Come to think of it, the whole affair may have been a madcap advertising scheme cooked up by US Airways.

"US Airways - now 100% Muslim free" may not be a bad advertising slogan considering that all recent airplane hijackings have been at the hands of Muslims.

Mexican Grinch Halts Christmas Trees at Border
In one of the first actions under Operation Christmas Tree, Mexican environmental authorities have halted a shipment of Oregon-raised Douglas fir trees at the Mexico-US border.

According to the Profepa, Mexican inspectors seized a shipment of almost 2,000 Oregon-grown trees at the Colombia crossing on the Nuevo Leon-Texas border. Justifying its action, the environmental protection agency said the trees were detained after inspectors discovered live Douglas fir twig weevil larvae in the shipment. The trees will be returned to the US, the Profepa said.

Words fail me. But perhaps when we can discover illegal aliens doing something serious, like having "twig weevil larvae" in their pockets, instead of just carrying tuberculosis, meth, marijuana, cocaine and other benign things we can start "returning them to Mexico."

Crime (democrats) and punishment (republicans)

I heard Governor Kulongoski this morning once again talking about how "head start prevents crime." Also how "spending money saves money." (I'll leave the second statement to the collection agencies)

I'm sure that full day kindergarten also "prevents crime" in the opinion of Kulongoski.

Now before you lemmings jump on and say that this isn't the "opinion" of Kulongoski, that there was an "actual report" released, I would point to who did the report: Fight Crime: Invest in Kids.

Their "plan" involves government being involved in every aspect of parenting, or simply outright trying to be the parents. I don't need a government beauracrat coming to my house to "coach" me on being a parent. I don't need my kids spending 10 hours a day in government run institutions. (including during the summer)

These trolls want your kids FROM BIRTH.

And I don't need your stupid statistics on how government programs keep these kids out of jail. You want more that a statistic, you want something tangible? Then go down to your local county jail and survey the inmates with one question: are your parents married?

Then when you find out that 99% don't have a married biological mother and father maybe you should re-evaluate your constant trashing of the traditional family. (Oh c'mon Daniel that doesn't really happen... example: Metro councilor Robert Liberty "Ozzie is dead, and Harriet is a working mom. What we need are homes for single-parent families who want to live near where they work, shop and go to school.") [note: I trashed Liberty and his liberal utopia pretty well didn't I?]

Maybe instead of trying to replace the family with government you should get the heck out of the way of us raising our kids!

Suggested follow up survey at the local jail: Do you regularly attend Church? (guessing that people who do attend regularly aren't in jail or prison, maybe the "invest in kids" group could bus "disadvantaged youth" to a neighborhood church for Sunday service and Youth Group.)

John Ewdards always likes low prices. Always.

Former Sen. Edwards Acknowledges Staffer Asked Wal-Mart for PlayStation 3
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said Thursday that a staff member for former Sen. John Edwards — a vocal critic of the retailer — asked his local Wal-Mart store for help in getting the potential 2008 presidential candidate a Sony PlayStation 3. Edwards said a volunteer did so by mistake.

"By mistake." Rrrriiiiiiggggghhhhttttttt.

But isn't it all free?

Oregon leaders' choice: Santa or statesman
Full-day kindergarten. Universal health care. Fresh bouquets on the desks of every state employee, paid for through a newly created State Flower Fund. There's no end to the number of government programs that might make life better for Oregonians after years of cuts.

The Fishwrapper calling for less spending? Actually not really. Of the three items listed above you can bet that they support the first two while reluctantly opposing the third.

And instead of saying they want to "spend" on something they say we should "invest" in something. Kind of like I could "invest" in a six-pack.

My prediction: Lars and Victoria are going to have lots of cannon fodder to talk about when the next legislative session comes about.

Welcome to our side

Something I thought about regarding the WW story on the illegal alien student:

"To work, they use fake Social Security numbers, which they bought nine years ago for about $30 apiece on a street in Woodburn, in a transaction that went something like a drug deal, Carlos' father says."

"As far as the couple knows, they are the only ones with their particular Social Security numbers, which they shared with their current employers in order to get their jobs. Presumably, their employers use those numbers to have taxes withheld from their paychecks..."

Maybe you have heard the phrase "a Republican is just a Democrat who has been mugged." Well, when the IRS knocks on the door of one of you amnesty advocates and insists that you have unreported income you just feel free to join our side over at Oregonians for Immigration Reform.

"An immigration enforcement advocate is just an anmesty proponent who has been victimized by an illegal alien."

That's "Dr." illegal to you

Illegal Scholar
Carlos is a bright high-school senior who wants to go to college. Here's the problem: He's an undocumented immigrant.

This is the WW story that we have been hearing about all day. Read it for yourself. It's a great story on the crimes and costs associated with the "good" illegal aliens. The stolen social security numbers, the fradulent work documents, the tax scams, the education costs... and these are the illegal aliens that aren't (presumably) raping girls and selling drugs.

Question for "Carlos": you can't get a job, what do you need a college education for?

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

What's that sound?

Oh, that's the sound of thousands of perverts rushing to apply for a job where they can share a bathroom with your wife/girlfriend/daughter.

Q. What is the employer’s obligation regarding restrooms?

A. If an employer maintains gender-specific restrooms, transgender employees should be permitted to use the restroom that is consistent with the individual’s gender identity.

Where single occupancy restrooms are available, they may be designated as “gender neutral.” All employers need to find solutions that are safe, convenient and respect the transgender employee’s dignity.

While the state of Washington seems very concerned about the "safety" and "conveniance" of someone who is mentally disturbed and not at all concerned about the "safety" or "conveniance" of the general population.

Q. Would your average woman feel "safe" having a 40-something man walk into the bathroom behind her?

A. No.

The lumping of the "transgender" folks into the gay agenda reveals it for what it really is: a pact for a sexual free-for-all where no judgements can be made at all. Any argument, however invalid, about someone being "born that way" goes out the window here.

We know which way you were born. You want a doctor to change that fact with a pair of scissors.

No nuclear... except in the advance of Communism

From Indymedia...

Congradulations North Korea!
(they didn't learn them to spell to good at them government schools)

The Songun Politics Study Group (USA), home to the Kimilsungist fighters within the epicentre of US imperialism wishes to reaffirm militant solidarity with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the issue of nuclear bombs and the struggle against imperialism, namely US imperialism.

It is quite correct to say that the USA progressive should stand with the DPRK nuke tests openly and defiantly not only out of principles of internationalism but because for their own people the possibility of war with deep consequences has been greatly checked by the DPRK taking a stance of dignity and self-assertion.

Go, Go Socialism! Go, Go Communism! Go, Go Nuclear, Nuclear DPRK, Hurray!

However, a couple of days ago on the same site...

GERMANY: 20.000 police men (!) secure nuclear waste transport against mass protests
Anti-nuclear activists on Saturday delayed a waste train from northern France to northern Germany by several hours, said the French reprocessing company, Areva.

No nuclear, yes nuclear, I'm so confused.

Say WA?!?!?

Washington State Labor and Industries
Q. If I am an undocumented worker, will L&I turn me in to the Immigration and Naturalization Services or the local police authority?

A. Labor and Industries is NOT associated with the Immigration and Naturalization Service. We will not report an undocumented worker to the federal government or to a local police authority — it is our intent to ensure employees are provided a safe workplace, appropriate wages, and medical coverage if injured.

Doesn't bother WA L&I if your labor is illegal, just if you are illegaly making at least the minimum wage.

We'll give you the keys, you drive, but it's not for you

Purpose: Transitional Food Assistance (TFA) is a program to provide stable food benefits to families leaving the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Tribal TANF programs while receiving Basic Food.


People who are non-recipients of a TANF/SFA Assistance Unit do not impact the household’s eligibility for TFA.

Stephanie is the head of household for TANF and Basic Food. Stephanie is an undocumented immigrant and has failed to cooperate with the Division of Child Support (DCS) for TANF. As an undocumented immigrant, she does not receive TANF for herself.

Because Stephanie is not a TANF recipient, the failure to cooperate with DCS does not impact TFA. When the household leaves TANF, they may receive TFA.

It's the same argument that Oregon makes and it's an argument that only a lawyer could appreciate. Sure we're putting the money in her control but we're not really giving it to her...

I really like the part about the illegal alien being "uncooperative." I mean, if she walks into the DSHS office and spits on the nearest social worker do they still give her free stuff?

You can have my Daisy when you pry it from my cold, dead hands

Banning BB Guns
You might think that Massachusetts can't become any more anti-gun.

Well, think again. Now there's a proposal to ban BB guns in Massachusetts. Complete with a BB gun amnesty period. And a BB gun buyback program.

In fact, these politicians not only plan to ban BB guns in Massachusetts, they're sending letters to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island to ask those states to do the same.

I had bought a Daisy BB gun to teach my kids how to shoot in the woods across from my house. Come to find out that Sherwood has a city ordinance against firing BB guns, slingshots, etc within city limits. (The only way to find this ordinance is with a google site search to find the minutes of an obscure meeting)

I guess the girlie men on the city council are worried about someone losing an eye. While I'm disapointed that we can't plink pop cans in the woods it's worked out since once we are outside of city limits my boys can freely shoot a 12gauge instead. (with a little help)

Hat tip Orbusmax for the story

Cutting out the middle-man

Forget about exporting the jobs, let's just export the dollars!

Federal Reserve will help immigrants transfer funds
The U.S. Federal Reserve is banking on immigrants for its new remittance program.

Called Directo a Mexico, the product allows U.S. banks participating in the program to conduct money-transfers for Mexican workers through its automated clearinghouse system.

To use the service, "all individuals are required to be documented," said Elizabeth McQuerry, a vice president for the Federal Reserve's retail payments office in Atlanta.
Oh good, I feel better...

"The form of documentation depends on the bank or credit union," she said. "According to the U.S. Patriot Act, the matricula consular is a legal form of ID for a bank or credit union to accept."
Aaaaah hahahahahaha, I knew they were joking. The illegal alien card is accepted. I guess by "documented" they mean "in possession of some sort, any sort, of document. Fraudulent or not."

In 2005, Latino immigrants sent $53.6 billion from the United States to Latin American countries...

As if politicians need more drugs...

According to 33 year veteran gang specialist and retired L.A. Sheriff’s Sergeant Richard Valdemar, Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated city councils and political campaigns in many small cities in Los Angeles County.

Interesting video included on the website.

OFIR press release

Tuesday’s election a victory for immigration reform?

Most political observers have stated that the election Tuesday was a referendum on President Bush’s policies. Democrats gained control of both the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. Not one Democratic Senator or House member lost their seat. National issues even affected the vote for governor here in Oregon.

Jim Ludwick, President of Oregonians for Immigration Reform stated, "Almost everyone believes that the election was a referendum on the policies of President Bush. President Bush is the chief proponent of amnesty and open borders. If the election was a repudiation of President Bush’s policies, how can it not also be a repudiation of his immigration policies?”

Ludwick went on to make the following points:

The House Immigration Reform Caucus chaired by Congressman Tom Tancredo has 104 members. Their goals are the same as OFIR’s. 96 of the members were re-elected and 2 were open seats.

In Arizona there were 4 anti-illegal immigration propositions on the ballot. Prop. 100, which denies bail to illegal aliens charged with a serious crime, passed 78% to 22%. Prop. 102, which prohibits illegal aliens from being awarded punitive damages in any Arizona court, passed 74.5% to 25.5%. Prop 103, which makes English the official language of Arizona, passed 74.4% to 25.6%, (50% of Hispanic Arizonians voted in favor of it). Prop. 300, which limits certain educational opportunities for illegal aliens, passed by a 71.7% to 28.3% margin.

In Colorado voters passed a referendum that denies valuable tax deductions to employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens.

Ludwick went on to say, "Most importantly, many of the newly elected Democrats campaigned on being tough against illegal immigration. In Wednesday’s report on the election, The Oregonian reported that,’Winning House Democrats campaigned hard on a platform that was largely business-minded, fiscally tight and tough on illegal immigration.’"

Immigration reform, our sovereignty and control over our borders should not be partisan issues. They are issues that should unite Republicans, Democrats and independents.

A recent poll by the Center for Immigration Studies reported that three out of four voters believed the reason we have illegal immigration is that past enforcement efforts have been grossly inadequate. Also, when told the scale of legal and illegal immigration, voters overwhelmingly thought it was too high.

We helped them while they were illegal

I am going to throw a big "our tax dollars have been helping illegal aliens" party for the next few months before they stop being illegal aliens and become our "guests."

So without further ado...

State of Washington Commission on Hispanic Affairs.

Meeting Minutes
A social worker from DSHS stated that there is a program through DSHS for undocumented families to apply for housing assistance. It is only available once a year.

Meeting Minutes
The Commission partnered with the Department of Health (DOH) to effect change within these agencies in order to better serve undocumented workers.

2007 - 2012 Strategic Plan
The State's recent budget shortfalls have directly affected the Hispanic community. For example, in recent years, Hispanic undocumented immigrant children have lost a significant portion of medical coverage as they were transferred from the state-funded medical assistance program to the Basic Health Program.
Oh boo-freakin-hoo. I'm soooo sad that the illegal alien children lost their cadillac coverage and now only get "basic" health care at the cost to the taxpayers.

If you want to know how this "strategic plan" affected the Washington state budget the look no further...

The Governor’s Budget for Health Care
Restores health coverage for immigrant children. The Governor’s budget restarts the
Children’s Health Program for children of undocumented farm workers with incomes below
100 percent of the federal poverty level.

$17.5 million GF-State

That's $17,500,000 general fund dollars. Dollars that could go to public safety, schools, roads, etc.

But here is the best part, thanks to Bush and his newly elected democrat congress these programs will no longer be necessary! If only because the illegal aliens will now be legal guests.

Mike "amnesty" Pence

The Mac View: Pence as Minority Leader a Great Deal for Illegal Aliens
As much as I love and adore Human Events and my many friends at HE, I have to disagree with them on their fawning over the prospect of Mike Pence becoming minority leader. He'd be a great minority leader, especially since his personal not-an-amnesty amnesty plan for 20 million illegal aliens will help ensure that the GOP remains a minority party.

Mac Johnson is right on.

To ensure that the same voters who stayed home yesterday will stay home in '08 we just need an amnesty bill.

And we need that amnesty bill like a fish needs a bicycle...

If you are feeling blue over the election I highly recommend going and reading some Mac Johnson columns. It will help you feel better.

Sore losers

I'm not a sore loser here. If you look at my last couple posts I am moving forward, looking at the positive and wanting to focus on what I (and people of a similar mindset) can do to keep this country and American families strong.

However I'm thouroughly enjoying the "ha ha" and "suck it" comments from giddy liberals.

I suppose that I could do what liberals did in 2004 and go put on a skirt, cry to my shrink and threaten to leave the country. But I'm not a whiny girl.

And the claim that this is a rejection of "conservative" (read: mainstream) values is absurd. A democrat got elected and gay marriage got rejected in several states.

As for the issue of immigration, Heath Shuler (D), who was just elected to the House, has this to say:

“Illegal immigration costs American taxpayers approximately $70 billion a year in financial assistance for welfare benefits, health care, education and domestic crime-fighting... I do not support granting amnesty to people who have broken the law.”

So don't assume that because someone has a (D) next to their name that they march in step with

Moving forward

Rather than dwell on the fact that we now have Speaker Ortega, I mean Pelosi (campaign slogan: A needle exchange on every corner!), I think that we need to focus on what we can do next time.

Did you all find the time to distribute the Christian Voter's Guide at your church? Did you donate any money, however little, to your favorite candidate/cause? Did you work the phone banks or stuff evenlopes or go door to door for a campaign?

Did you call your like-minded friends and neighbors to make sure they got their ballot in?

I want everyone to remember how they are feeling now, and how they were feeling last night, and translate that into some action when the 2008 cycle comes about.

Tuesday, November 07, 2006


Well... this was not a good election for me. But there are some things to keep in mind:

1) we still have a veto pen in the White House
2) many democrats ran on Republican principles
3) Lincoln Chaffee lost... that's a plus in my book
4) the nutty left got slapped by Lieberman
5) a couple more states passed traditional marriage amendments
6) we still have the Senate... (timestamp: 9:53pm PST)

Election coverage

I have to go attend a Cub Scout meeting so no blogging until (possibly) late tonight. I would highly recommend that you visit Orbusmax for all your NW and national election coverage.

Thank you tripcheck... for nothing

No time to blog, there is a 2-3 hour delay on a road that I use to get to work. The helpful information at this point would be a START TIME for this delay but no info has been posted on the signs or at that I can find.

Republicans, Democrats... Chuck Norris

Yeah, yeah, it's "election eve" but at this point there's nothing I can say other than get your ballot in.

So it's time for a little internet phenomenon. (little did Al Gore realize when he "created the internet" that such treasures like Star Wars Kid, Numa Numa, This Land is my Land and many more would be the result)

Spend any time online and you come to realize that Chuck Norris is the baddest guy on the block. Observe:

Chuck Norris Facts
When Bruce Banner gets mad, he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets mad, he turns into Chuck Norris.

Some people wear Superman pajamas. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.

Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because Chuck Norris only recognizes the element of surprise.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.

Outer space exists because it's afraid to be on the same planet with Chuck Norris.

One county = the whole state

Over at BlueOregon, yes, that racist site where they hate black people (I keep saying it so it must be true!) they are lamenting the voter turnout, or lack thereof, in The People's Republic of Multnomah County.

"Remember: Multnomah is the bright, blue beating heart of Oregon. If turnout dips in Multnomah County, we can lose statewide."

Nice to know that even they admit that without the cesspool known as Portland this state would go Repblican. For more on Portland's contributions to this state I will simply point to this crime map:

RED = >500 crimes
(stats stop at 500 so it could be one million crimes)
Courtesty Crime Mapper

As for what the Blue Oregon readers think of the rest of us:

"Why would I want to live in biggoted rural Oregon?
No thanks! I'd rather live in a community that is diverse in every sense of the word."

Get your ballot in!

If you haven't got your ballot filled out yet then please stop reading this blog and go do it! While I no longer send mine in early (not that I don't trust you Mr. Bradbury...) but have it filled out and it will go in the drop box today!


Find a dropbox, try your local library. (which, no doubt, is asking for more money on that ballot so they can continue to provide Spanish books, CD's and movies to illegal aliens)

Don't be one of those "I was going to vote but I left my ballot in my desk blah blah blah" guys.

Got a few minutes? Watch for illegal aliens!

Texas Border Watch
As part of the Virtual Neighborhood Border Watch Program, the State of Texas has been testing video surveillance cameras in different environments along the 1240 miles of Texas/Mexico border using the internet to transmit the images. The last stage of the test is to stress the system by providing public access to numerous surveillance cameras.

Helpful hypocrisy, hurtful hypocrisy

The revelation that an evangelical leader was engaging in homosexual behavior and purchased illegal drugs has got the media and the left in a fit of giggles. They love nothing more than to see a supposed virtous man fallen.

I'm currently reading the book, Do as I say, Not as I do (profiles in liberal hypocrisy), which is an interesting read (a little dry) but the author makes a very profound statement at the begininng:

(paraphrased) When a conservative violates his public stance of morality it is always to his/her detriment. The drugs, gay sex, theft, etc hurt the conservative and he/she recognizes that. On the other hand when a liberal violates his/her public stance of morality (don't pollute, corporations are bad/unions are good) is improves the life of the liberal. Not using a Union shop to film or produce movies means that Michael Moore can stay on budget for example.

The preacher who has been accused of having gay sex and admits to buying meth is being ridiculed by the liberals for his wrongdoings. I say wrongdoings because when a conservative does them they become wrong, anyone else and the liberal media would accuse anyone harrassing the person of a hate crime.

While the liberals are content to teach schoolchildren in public schools precisely how to clean their dirty heroin needles they are incensed that a God fearing man could possibly sin. No word on whether or not Haggard would have been able to use a (liberal supported) taxpayer funded needle exchange program if he needed something to shoot up with.

As for the homosexual behavior, I'm glad to see that the media and the left are treating it like the vice that it is. Maybe they will realize that drug use and homosexuality aren't something to be excused or justified but are serious problems for our society.

Haggard says what he did hurt him. We should take a lesson from that.

Creative headlining

A tale of two headlines today:

Poll: Governor Slightly Ahead in Oregon

Winds blow in Kulongoski's favor
(The Fishwrapper)

One headline tells the story. One headline reveals that someone was outside protesting capitialism during journalism class...

The first line (on the Google news search) is also an editorial:

"Democratic Gov. Ted Kulongoski, apparently benefiting from an angry voter mood toward President Bush and the Republican Party, now ..."

I guess this is where I could write "the author of this article, apparently suffering from a mental illness, is..."

I guess they do back up their statement with one piece of "evidence"... they interview a reporter who hates Bush.

Thursday, November 02, 2006

Who knew and when did they know it?

Pedophile Goldschmidt's Aide Says Ted Kulongoski Knew and Helped Neil Anyway...
[Kulongoski]... knew about Goldschmidt's child rape/pedophilia and hired him anyway to head the Department of Higher Education and took him into his inner sanctum as an advisor during his first run for Governor.

But don't let that affect your vote or anything...

At least he didn't accuse them of atrocities this time

The John "soldiers are stupid" Kerry audio montage as put together by Lars Larson.

This time he only calls them stupid, at least he didn't call them war criminals and murderers.

But did he have a rough childhood?

Current chain of events for police contact:

Police are called. Police contact suspect. Police attempt to get control of the situation with neccessary force. (verbal through lethal) Police go home to their families and the bad guy(s) go to jail or the morgue.

Tommy Potter's new chain of events for police contact:

Police are called. Police contact potential police brutality victim. Police attempt to determine if knife wielding man who is frothing at the mouth is "mentally ill." Police open up their field copies of DSM IV and attempt to diagnose the mental illness. Police attempt to determine if suspect, I mean potential police brutality victim, had a rough childhood. Suspect stabs several bystanders...

A day in the life of a liberal

[This will be a new series where my liberal alter ego, Danny, will describe his daily life and thoughts as a liberal]

So as I was driving to work this morning I saw a man by the off-ramp begging for food. I just can't believe that we live in a society where people are starving. If those greedy Republicans weren't obsessed with tax cuts then maybe this man would have some food.

I then proceeded to Starbucks to buy my daily $4 Mocha-Frapachino-Latte and drank it while being upset with society for not having a conscious.

All about Jim

Area activist works to curb illegal immigration
Jim Ludwick just might be the busiest man in the Willamette Valley.

Most days, Ludwick, the president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, is up at 6 a.m. checking on his horses, placing calls to politicians in the nation's Capitol, sending e-mail alerts and connecting via the Internet with other organized and budding groups opposed to illegal immigration.

The Statesmen Journal does a profile of Jim Ludwick and talks about OFIR.

Pictures the capitol

A real force to be reckoned with, a man with a passion for the issue of illegal immigration and someone that I consider a friend: Rick Hickey (VP of OFIR)

The media can't ignore us anymore:

And uh, this is for those of you who came here illegaly from Mexico and need a little help understanding the geography...

(I'm just picture happy lately, I can't help it)

Many more pictures can be found at (frequent commentor) bjdorr's site

ATTN: conservative readers

RE: the below post

Why would I encourage liberals to vote for Keating? (albeit in an obviously tongue-in-cheek manner) The same reason that Kulongoski wants you to vote for Mary Starrett.

I like Miss Starrett as a person. I agree with many of her positions. But a vote is wasted on her and every time an angry conservative insists that he will vote for Mary, somewhere there is a liberal giggling like a schoolgirl. (yes, even the liberal "men" giggle like schoolgirls)

So please, come to terms with our candidate, Ron Saxton.

Maybe you just got your property tax statement today. (I did) Maybe you are looking at your phone bill, your electric bill, etc. Notice the taxes. Do you want another tax on your car insurance bill? Do you want new mandated spending on unions, errr, schools, with no idea how to pay for it? (oh wait, the idea is to take more of your money, they just haven't said that yet)

Do you want illegal aliens to feel welcome here? Huh? DO YOU?

Then vote for Saxton.

ATTN: liberal readers

“Well here we are with a few weeks left until election day and I’m about to travel throughout the Valley to set the record straight. Ted Kulongoski is a weak and vacillating politician who has attempted to woo the progressive community with empty words about the war in Iraq, the environment, good government, and his ‘vision’ for Oregon’s energy independence. These are empty political words indeed. I have watched as he has made a mockery of these vital issues. I doubt if any voter believes Kulongoski, if reelected, will follow through on his empty political promises. I certainly don’t. It is important for a leader to be truthful and committed to what he says. Oregonians deserve better. Ted it is reality therapy time.” ----- Joe Keating Green Party candidate for governor

Vote your concious liberals. Don't let Kulongoski fool you. He's a tool of the military-industrial complex. He's not a liberal! Only Keating will create the socialist utopia that you so desire. You must vote for Joe Keating!

No on 44

I have been asked what my argument against measure 44 is. It is simply that I do not like government "negotiating" in private sector dealings. It's like Vinny "negotiating" with a baseball bat.

While in this case the "negotiating" may not be coercive in nature (even though they can condemn your property, seize your assests, audit you, fine you, or just target your industry *cough* pay day lenders *cough*) doesn't mean that this still isn't government interference.

Here is the "about us" page on the OPDP. They "negotiate" lower costs for state agencies much like companies do for their employees by purchasing in bulk as one entity. This is free market. But once you let everyone have these "negotiated" lower costs when they should be individual purchasers then you have stepped outside the market. Let supply and demand determine price not artificial demand made by government. Or maybe we should let government "negotiate" prices on LCD tv's at a bulk rate...

Actually my best argument against measure 44 (and all government drug plans) is this: WAL-MART! Can you really beat a $4 prescription?

No on 46 & 47

Two measures could reshape how campaigns are financed
Oregon is one of five states with no limits on campaign contributions or spending, but voter approval of two measures on the Nov. 7 ballot would give Oregon some of the strictest limits in the nation.

I'm voting NO on both of these speech limiting measures. I am a big fan of "grassroots" politics (small protests make big changes as you day laborers now know) but I also realize that at the grassroots level we can't get most politicians to even give us a sideways look.

Special interest groups, groups that are really a collective of people who agree on the same issue, have more clout because money is pooled. I can give $20 to a candidate who won't ever see my name or I can give $20, along with thousands of other Oregonians, to OFIR who will then give it to a candidate who will remember that their supporters oppose illegal immigration.

The passage of 46 and 47 could limit things like voter guides (because in the eyes of many politicians an informed voter is a scary voter) and would limit advertising. Just think of McCain/Feigngold. Did that really do anything helpful?

Vote NO on all bonds

After my post below (read it while you fill out your ballot...) I opened up my phone bill. I notice this every time but really take a look:

Federal Excise tax

OR Universal Serivce Surcharge

E911 Emergency tax

Service Assistance Program

City tax

Federal Universal Service Fee

That's six taxes on just my phone bill. Don't give them another cent!

Vote like me

My endorsements and votes for the upcoming election are as follows:

Measure 39 - YES

Measure 40 - YES

Measure 41- YES

Measure 42 - NO

Measure 43 - YES

Measure 44 - NO

Measure 45 - NO

Measure 46 - NO

Measure 47 - NO

Measure 48 - YES

Governor - Ron Saxton

Supreme Court - Jack Roberts

Metro - Tom Cox

Judge District 1 - Ron Grensky

Judge District 2 - Debra Vogt

Judge District 16 - William Marshal

Judge District 18 - Don Haller

Judge District 20 - Charlie Bailey

I like my current Rep Jerry Krummel and soon to be Senator Larry George.

There aren't any R's in the house or senate that I really want to throw under the bus at this point (taking suggestions if you have any) so I'd say vote Republican in your district. Any statewide races that I left blank are done because I just don't have any good info one way or the other on the candidates, leave a message if you have something for us. (please provide a source link or some evidence) Some notables that I really like:

Kim Thatcher and Jared Thatcher come to mind. I'll also stress that Tom Cox for Metro is a very important vote as is Jack Roberts for the Supreme Court.

If you have any questions about why I am voting this way or how I arrived at my decisions feel free to leave a comment. If you have questions about a local race then leave the names and I'll see what I can find out. (stuff like county commissioners I can answer easily, mayor of timbuktoo I may not know the characters)

Your best friend when you aren't sure: see who the special interest groups support! If NARAL, the gun grabbers and the teachers union support a candidate then your can safely say that they are trouble.

Almost forgot! I'm voting NO on every bond measure I have. NO NO NO NO. I suport the police, I support the fire department but you know what, if the local governments would stop funding diversity councils, needle exchange programs and cultural centers then that money could go to public safety instead where it belongs. By giving them more of our earned money we give them an excuse to keep wasting the money that they take. Starve the beast.

tol‧er‧ance - a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.

So where does vandalism and graffiti fit into the "tolerance" platform that the left always preaches? Where does attacking the Minutemen founder while he is trying to give a speech fit into tolerance? Where does shouting me down at carousels of information/day labor sites while I am trying to have a conversation with someone fit into tolerance?

Or is it the position of the liberals that tolerance is a one-way street?

Greedy capitalist and some worthy causes

You may notice the addition of some new buttons on my sidebar. Simply click on them and put in your credit card info and happiness will follow. No, seriously, I've decided to add a tip jar to my blog for various reasons. Feel free to donate in any amount or not. (But before you decide "not" think of me driving early in the morning to a day labor protest, using my own gas, missing my family... I was born in an orphanage and government is the answer to everything... oh wait, that's a Kulongoski ad, never mind.)

Second, I put the donation button up for Oregonians for Immigration Reform. I would strongly encourage anyone who wants to stand up with a unified voice (and unified dollar) to help elect politicians, get the message out (watch for a new billboard) and educate voters then please throw a few dollars their way.

I am also going to put up a button for the Oregon Minutemen. My friend Michael has been paying the expenses out of his own pocket and doing some great work. Let's help him out. (as soon as he sends me the HTML for the button)

So pay up...

When democrats say "make every vote count" they even mean the illegal votes!

Or maybe if you are registered democrat they want you to move to Mexico to vote...

Just think of this poster when after the election we hear liberals whining about people being "disenfranchised" because they aren't talking about our military men, they are talking about illegal aliens and homeless people who have heroin needles in their arms.

Why we need interior enforcement...

This is also why I cringe every time I hear a Republican acting like he is going to be tough on illegal immigration but who only wants to talk about "border enforcement" for fear of upsetting those unethical employers who happily employ the illegal aliens who make it past the guards.

No security measure is perfect (or else we would have stopped prison breaks and bank robberies a long time ago) so it's important that we have a strong disincentive for criminal aliens to not even test our border security.

Thank you Allen for the pic!

Well when you say it like that!

And here I was thinking that illegal immigration was bad for our citizens, legal aliens, the American worker, the economy, our schools, our hospitals and our children. But after hearing this guy rant at us I've come to see the error of my ways...

Democrats are monkeys?

In all fairness they may not be democrats... they could be ordinary citizens talking about that "useless experiment" known as the tram!

Portland day labor protest: Part "will this never end"

No it will not end as long as I have more pictures, videos and tales to tell.

In this video you truly see the intelligence of the typical counter-protester. He claims that we are pawns of Bush and the Chamber of Commerce... both of whom love illegal aliens!
We are pawns (4.2mb)

This video was from our short walk to the Democrat building. It's especially funny because our "handlers" have to follow us wherever we go.
Signs and Commies (3.3mb)

For any of you who are new to this and are interested in our previous protests in Cornelius you can see the parent directory of videos HERE and I would suggest doing a search of "cornelius" in the blog search box in the upper left.

Portland day labor protest: Part ses

And we have video courtesy of Minuteman Michael whose dedication and politeness amaze even me! (also thank you to Greg for getting these up on the domain)

Click the link to open movie:

Saxton for Gov (4.8mb)

Which leads into...

The landscape (4.2mb)

This is a tolerant liberal calmly making his point. (his point, in a nutshell, is that we suck) The guy on the left says that he will "kill white kids of tourists" next time he gets deported to Mexico.

More videos coming.

Portland day labor protest: Part cinco

This is getting lengthy, make sure you scroll down through part uno!

Why so camera shy amigo? But that coffee cup is a clever disguise!

Having nothing to do with illegal aliens and everything to do with Portland:

This was plastered all over the place by the day labor site. And actually, if you read it, it may have something to do with illegal aliens after all... they just need the print a spanish version!

One of our liberal observers said that our flag waving was "a bit much" but I thought that it was just right.

Portland day labor protest: Part quattro

In addtion to forcing the illegal alien (so admitted) day laborers to move around the corner (and they still couldn't get anyone to pick them up) our group had some fun walking a few blocks over to a democrat call center/volunteer building.

Kulongoski: You can tell he's on the side of illegal aliens!

Democrats: We're the party that hates the most successful retailer ever! Actually, we hate all forms of success.

As we walked around, our green hat wearing communist friends ("legal observers" according to their hats) gave chase with their cameras. (scroll down to see more pictures of these guys)

This is so you democrats remember during your voter registration: illegal aliens can't vote!

NOTE: Want to help us elect representatives who feel the same way you do about illegal aliens and are willing to vote that way? Donate to the Oregonians for Immigration Reform PAC.
