This is what we are trying to stop

It's a new year, a blue year in the Oregon legislature. It's going to be very important that we contact our representatives in opposition to yet another way that some of our government officials would like to make Oregon more illegal aliens friendly: the driving privilege card.

In case you think that this couldn't happen there was actually a bill that created this illlegal alien card in the 2005 session.

House Bill 3473
"Establishes driving privilege card for persons not able topresent verified Social Security number or verified identifyingnumber issued by United States Department of Homeland Securityindicating that person is legally present in United States.Provides that driving privilege card grants same drivingprivileges as driver license but cannot be used foridentification purposes."

And a serious discussion was had about the illegal alien drivers license in a House Transportation Comittee meeting. While I think that Kim Thatcher is one of the best voices we have in Salem it is disheartening to see the concessions that our side is willing to make:

Rep. Thatcher
Expresses concern about a driving privilege card that expires after eight years. Recommends a one-year renewal.


How about a NO YEAR RENEWAL! Even Kropf makes a concession:

Rep. Kropf
Acknowledges that economic hardship is a valid point. Relates his experiences riding with a state trooper in his district. Argues the driving privilege card is a disincentive to those wishing to stay hidden.


It's like worrying about the economic hardship on meth dealers when you cut off their source of precursor ingrediants. Who cares?

My point is that we need to really call/email/visit not just the people that we know are on the wrong side of this issue but also our friends and allies in Salem to tell them we want NO COMPROMISE on this issue.

Do you really think the hypnotic spell over the capitol building won't include everyone?

Here are some random thoughts..

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some midlevel governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts squirting out babies.

I'm not in touch with my feelings and I like it that way, damn it!

I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang.

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer.

I believe it's called the Boy Scouts for a reason.

I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized.

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you'd better do it in English.

I don't use the excuse "it's for the children" as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions.

I think fireworks should be legal on the 4th of July.

I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at Blockbuster. In fact, if your parents are footing the bill to put your pansy ass through 4-7 years of college, you haven't begun to be enlightened.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God or gods, just leave the rest of us out of it. This also applies to sexuality.

My heroes are John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Rush Limbaugh, and whoever canceled Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time arguing about it.

I think global warming is a big lie. Where are all those experts now, when I am freezing my ass through a long winter?

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I didn't wander forty years in the desert after getting chased out of Egypt, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you, so shut-the-#$%!-up already.

I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches. And where does he get his money. And why is he always part of the problem and not the solution.

I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you're running from them. I also think they have the right to pull your ass over if you are breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I hate those bastards standing in the intersections trying to sell me crap or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. These people should be targets.

I think if you are in the passing lane, and not passing, your license should be revoked, and you should be forced to ride the bus until you promise to never delay the rest of us again.

I think beef jerky could quite possibly be the perfect food.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement.

I think Dr. Seuss was a genius.

I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise.

I believe if she has her lips on your willie, it is sex, and it is sex for both of you. This even applies when you are President of the United States.

If that makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

Rooster,

Well said I couldn't agree with you more. If there was more people who thought like this we would still have the U.S. the way it was when I was growing up.

You all know the time it truly was the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Now it's the land of the weenies and the home of the thiefs.

I think rooster needs to get laid, smoke a joint, and chill the fuck out!

Wow anon, are you a therapist by trade?

Rooster said...

anon 1:53

I have been happily married for a number of years (to a liberal democrat). I quit smoking pot in 1979 when I figured out that it only made people into LOSERS. I have been chillin' since before you were a twinkle in your mother's eye.

That's all.

AND Rooster was just passing on something that GEORGE CARLIN-Bad American said anyhow.

Rooster said...

Well, Anon, you were close but it was not George Carlin. His website vehemently denies any connection.

http://www.georgecarlin.com/home/home.html

It actually started out several years ago as Bad Republican and you can actually find the original (it has gone through a lot of changes to get to where I have it) by searching on either Bad American or Bad Republican. I believe it was originally published by a fellow called BootyMonk or some such.

I have talked to Jeff about his comments and I think it would behouve everyone to do that. There were some misunderstandings I had after reading this portion of the blog but he cleared it up for me.
