The party of rewarding criminals

Driver's license issue complicates immigration politics
The leading presidential contenders, Republicans and Democrats alike, routinely declare their opposition to illegal immigration.

Is it hard for you libs to deal with the fact that your candidates have pretend to oppose your positions when running for national office?

During Tuesday night's Democratic debate, five of the seven candidates indicated they would support states issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. The front-runner, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, appeared to endorse the idea as well, before retreating into an answer with so many caveats that her rivals mocked her for seeming to take both sides.

On Wednesday, campaign spokesman Phil Singer would not directly answer whether Clinton supported licensing illegal immigrants. "The question misses the point of the issue," he said, stressing that the New York senator wants comprehensive immigration reform that puts people who are in the country illegally on a path to citizenship. (Amnesty)

I don't like these politicians actually talking about issues or taking a stance. Let's just go back to hearing about how much money they've raised so the Sheeple can go back to watching Dancing with the Stars.

Tues night rant

Is anyone else tired of politicians and their scandals? I'm not gay, I didn't solicit, I drove under the influence but they swept it under the rug, I raped the girl and everyone knew... etc etc etc.

Meanwhile we have The State excercising increasing control over our lives and even my family doctor opining (to my wife, since I don't go to the doctor unless you can see bone and even then I would try to self medicate with whiskey first) that "your child is perfectly healthy but I understand that you have loaded guns in the house and I'm concerned about that."

Yeah, be concerned if you show up on my property at 11:30pm and I think that you are a threat to my safety or the safety of others. Otherwise I don't need your opinion on my guns.

And the American Sheeple seem to have the attention span of the average American Idol watching idiot on the issue of illegal aliens. It was great that everyone rose up with one voice against amnesty but you notice that we are still pressing 1 for English, we are still arresting illegal aliens for serious crimes, we are still experiencing the burden of illegal aliens on our welfare programs and we are still standing by while The State looks the other way at certain lawbreakers.

But don't worry, George Bush is on the case. It was nice to hear him come out and bash the Democrats on their "attach a tax to every bill" tactic today. It would have been nicer if he wasn't spending the money like he was one of them.

The good news is that The State (yes, the same entity that has the power to send American citizens to foreign countries on a whim) is hiring a Problem Gambling Services Manager for $4,754 - $7,000 MONTHLY.

I'm seriously contemplating doing a doo-doo in my pants right now and seeing if I can find a state worker to come change me. I got $5 that says I can.

The good news is that my doo-doo will probably be covered under one of the new "Karl Marx Health Care Plans" that seems to pop up daily. Good Republicans are protecting us by conceding that we need socialized medicine but only for 90% of the population. The other 10% gets to pick up the tab since government reimbursement doesn't cover the whole bill. Thanks guys.

Thankfully I have folks like Mac Johnson with hilarious columns on American air travel (if I had been drinking during the "indigent monkey" comment you would owe me a new keyboard Mac) and our good friends to the south.


Also more effective than giving the money to Mexico to spend wisely, would be piling the money up on the border one night and just setting it on fire. The light from a $500 million bonfire would surely scare away one or two illegal alien “mules” laden with “maximum strength” pseudofed.

When the good liberals succeed in completely destroying the tradional family I may propose to Mac for a gay marriage. (be flattered Mac, the "tolerance" crowd consistenly puts me up on the "men seeking men" ads and I get disapointed when no one shows interest)

So we carved pumpkins tonight and you all know that another hero of mine is Lars (sorry to Victoria Taft and Ann Coulter, I just can't make my hero a woman) and I went with a cheesey face rather the the Lars O' Lantern that I've done in previous years...

So Happy Halloween everyone, the scariest thing out there is government!

More infamous Oregon

From the Chicago Tribune:

Medical pot law spawns other ills
The Oregon Medical Marijuana Act was sold to voters nine years ago with the prediction that about 500 people a year would apply to get relief from debilitating conditions such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV and multiple sclerosis.

Today, the program has swelled to 14,831 patients, with 1,700 filing new or renewal applications each month, including a few diagnosed with common afflictions such as asthma, back pain and menstrual cramps.

Sharon Place cultivated medicinal cannabis in the early 1990s, before it was legal, carrying the drug to some of the hospice patients she cared for.

She was arrested in 1991 for growing marijuana at home. But the judge recognized her good intentions. He let her go with 2 years' probation and 80 hours of community service, including time gardening at an elementary school.

Please give us the name of the judge who sent a dope grower to an elemetary school as punishment. Who exactly was he trying to punish? Future generations? I know that this is just the Chicago Tribune, the FBI, the Department of Justice and the DEA amongst others and not a Doonesburry cartoon but Oregon is not just being laughed at here, we are being called dangerous.

Who is your market?

During the baseball game last night (or maybe it was shortly after) there was an all Spanish recruitement commercial for the National Guard. This was the only commercial during this time period that was in Spanish.

People in marketing don't just make random choices like that. The folks who made that commercial had a target market in mind.

The market wasn't me because I couldn't understand the commercial. It couldn't be illegal aliens because they can't sign up for the military. It couldn't be the young children of illegal aliens who speak Spanish because they live in a Spanish speaking household because those children aren't 18.

If you are over the age of 18 and here legally you will speak English. (Maybe I'm putting too much faith in the government schools here) You were either born here and got an education in English (unless you have brown skin in which case the government school will throw you in an ESL class regarless of what language you speak) or you are a naturalized citizen and it is required that you learn English.

My point is that this commercial, to reach ELIGIBLE people for the guard, could have been done in English. They did it in Spanish anyways. I believe that this targets the market of American citizens who will still tell you that they are "Mexican." Loyalty to another country is not a quality that the US Armed forces should be looking for in their recruites.

Build more jails/prisons, give less cable tv

Man Returns to Ore. to Avoid Idaho Jail
An Oregon man was been arrested after fleeing police across a Snake River bridge into neighboring Idaho — only to reverse course near the stateline because he reckoned Oregon jails would be better than those in Idaho.

An Oregon State Police trooper says Maddox told him he didn't want to go to jail in Idaho.

Criminals try to avoid punishment whenever possible. There isn't a car thief in Oregon that wouldn't prefer to be arrested in Multnomah County over Clackamas County. Guess what that means for car owners in Multnomah County?

It would appear that the same rule goes for the state as a whole. "We treat our inmates well" shouldn't be the state slogan. Let's build jails/prisons and when they fill up let's build more. Let's take away the cable tv, dessert, cards, etc. Give them a Bible and that's it.

See how fast our criminals flee over California if we do this.

My Dear John letter

Dear Oregon Nursery Association,

If your business model requires you to break the law to make a profit then you should close up shop now.

diverse, creative = criminal

Shut Down Downtown TACOMA! Against I.C.E! Against Raids! November 9th &10th
There will be a designated green zone at S. 17th and Pacific on the corner and in the grassy park across from the art museum. In this area only 100% LEGAL forms of protest will be taking place! Bring puppets, musical instruments, signs, banners, creativity and passion. The rest of down town will be open to diverse and creative tactics!

But remember the Green zone is 100% Legal and those in the Green should not feel obligated to join or participate in anything going on out side of that park and corner. But if you feel comfortable, fed up, and ready, feel free to join in or plan your own actions or marches with your organizations and/or friends and loved ones!

By deductive reasoning we can only conclude that if the "green zone" is legal that the activities planned for outside the "green zone" will be illegal. I suppose it is pretty poetic that criminals acts will be used to protest the detention of criminal aliens.

Keep up the good work guys, I'm sure that the average citizen who is trying to get home from work or do some grocery shopping will be persuaded to your cause due to your random acts of vandalism, name-calling, rock throwing, etc.


Don't forget to vote! The sooner you get your ballot in the sooner Bill Bradbury can throw it out!

We can, we can't - who knows

If OFIR can stop the Carousel of Information then surely the United States government, even being as incompetent it is, can stop illegal immigration. Try taxing and regulating it maybe.

The drag queen doesn't deserve anyones vote for President.

School sells kids for cash

Hillsboro parents sue over son's ESL placement
The parents of a Latino boy who does not speak Spanish filed a $700,000 federal lawsuit against the Hillsboro School District.

The parents allege that educators placed their son in an English as a Second Language program solely because of his ethnicity.

I believe that it actually had less to do with his ethnicity and more to do with the fact that the schools get more money for ESL kids. It just works out that it's the Hispanic kids who have to suffer.

I was seething with rage when I heard this report on the radio this morning. There was a school district (not Sherwood) that tried this garbage on one of my children. I am thoroughly convinced that there is a special place in Hell for the teachers/administrators/staff who stunt the learning of children for a little more funding.

Congrats on your loss of control

First Baby Boomer Files For Social Security Benefits
Kathleen Casey-Kirschling filed for early retirement Monday, becoming the first baby boomer to start collecting Social Security.

"I think I'm just lucky to be at the top of the boom. I'm just one of many many millions and am blessed to have been in this generation and really blessed and to take my Social Security now," Casey-Kirschling said during a ceremony held at the National Press Club featuring Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue.

I'll golf clap for you Kathleen. We should all be so proud that your livlihood is now in the hands of others. Isn't it liberating to know that politicians (and therefore voters) control your financial destiny?

Will you get an increase? How much? It's all up to the whims of others yyyaaaayyyy! The important thing is now you are forever bonded to this issue and will be forced into a voting life of servitude to protect your financial well being. Castro and Chavez are smiling right now.

Police give aid to criminals

Police reach out to Latino community
Imagine having your house broken in to but being too scared to call the police because of your immigration status. Police say that's a major concern in the Latino community, and officials want everyone in the community to feel they are safe.

That's why police tackled the issue head on at "Mano a Mano en la Communidad," which means "Hand to Hand in the Community." This bi-lingual presentation explained and answered questions about police procedures.

"As far as the immigration status that's not something that we ask," says Officer Robert Rios of the Eugene Police Department. "As a matter of fact, it is against the law for us as police officers to ask for immigration status of any individual in the state of Oregon."

..."We have several officers that speak Spanish but only a few that are bilingual or bicultural."

When they say they want "everyone in the community" to feel safe keep in mind that in this context they mean "everyone of one racial group." I also think it's insulting to say that the whole "latino community" is worried about their immigration status.

And while we're at it, do you need some sort of membership card to be in this "community?" I happen to know some hispanics who are part of the "American community" or "Oregon community" but don't divide themselves up by race.

As for giving crimnials aid and comfort, you aren't making me feel any safer in the "Lane County Community" Officer Rios. And does a "bicultural" officer respect the whole child rape culture of Mexico?

On a Friday?

Apparently there is going to be a protest at the local Social Security Administration building in Portland today. Several groups are upset about the "no match" rule that says if your name doesn't match your SSN on your I-9 form then you can't work.

This is much like you can't claim dependents on your tax form if their name doesn't match their SSN.

Since this is happening during a weekday I'm guessing that most of these protesters don't have jobs and thus don't worry much about their names and Socials but some of you who are going to work today might be supporting this. If you see your Union on the list then it's time for you to be upset:

Supported by the Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition, including VOZ Workers' Rights Education Project, CAUSA, Jobs with Justice, PCASC, AFSC, SEIU Local 503, SEIU Local 49, AFSCME Council 75, Latino Network, Oregon Farm Worker Ministry, Center for Intercultural Organizing, PCUN, Hermandad Mexicana, Social Activist Youth, Escuela de Lideres "Magdalena Mora," Jefferson Center; in conjunction with national calls to action by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and the We Are America Alliance.

Was the Zimbabwe curriculum already taken or something?

While it has just recently made news about Oregon using Mexico's education system as a model for our own this program has gone on for quite some time.

"The program began in 1976 through the efforts of educators in both the United States and Mexico forming links between the two countries."

And I'm sure the mainstream media covered all this but did you know that your tax dollars go towards helping Oregon teachers visit Mexico?

As in the past, ODE through the OMESC, will support your program by covering the exchange teachers’ Embassy Fee ($100), Homeland Security Fee ($100), Accident/repatriation Insurance (2 months, approx. $100), and the cost of the J-1 Visa (approx. $400).

Ok, after mind numbing reading of meeting minutes, google searches and perhaps a shot or two of whiskey I'm just going to say that the following people should be fired:

Charlie Benitez - State Migrant Director

Tina Garcia - Migrant Education Service Center Director

Ignacio Robles - Migrant Education Service Center Director

I was making Ignacio Robles my case study (I so enjoyed roasting Alberto Moreno) but many of the websites that refer to him seem to be down and google cache (the bane of the state of Oregon when they tried to take down their "Carousel of Information" webpages) is also not loading.

I will try again tommorrow. I look forward to working on getting you fired Ignacio.

My costume

Halloween is coming up and I'm thinking about dressing up as an illegal alien for trick or treating. (Instead of candy I'll ask for your SSN, your job or perhaps just some meth)

But I'm having some trouble figuring out how I'm going to do this. I mean, I already have the drivers license part of the costume and I'll refuse to speak English but what else do I need? A sense of entitlement?

A mullet?

(Cornelius day labor site)

I just realized while looking for a mullet picture that I will need a crudely made "legalize me" sign to complete the costume.

And is being an illegal alien more than just the costume... is it a whole act? For instance, should I bum rush trucks any time they slow down on the street corner?

(Cornelius day labor site)

Maybe I need to wave the flag of another country... a country that I showed was inferior by voting with my feet.

Any other ideas?

I can feel the "love" and "tolerance"

It is under this logo that you will find the liberal definition of tolerance:

"How could people have been so ignorant and closed minded and bigoted and intolerant?"

...ex-State Senator Marylin Shannon and her slavic church backed homophobic zealots.

...the hatemongering homophobic bigotry in Oregon since the 1980s when the OCA was running around like Chicken Little ...

...the homophobes...

...homophobic organizations...

...shrilly the religious right and their bigoted foot soldiers howl and shriek...

That's what passes for "tolerance" in an editorial in today's You would be hard pressed to find anything approaching this level of name-calling in any pro-family editorial. "Think like a liberal or we will call you nasty names" seems to be the standard of operation these days.

That this writer is so clearly filled with hate for the [insert ominous sounds] Religious Right shines through like the very sun that causes global warming.

See no evil

DMV's fraud busts hit Latinos
Workers at Oregon's Driver and Motor Vehicle Services have turned in nearly 200 people to police for suspicious documentation, an effort that overwhelmingly singled out Latinos.

The policy actually singles out criminals.

Already, suspects who might otherwise have gone unchecked have been caught: they confess to buying Social Security cards in Montana, Los Angeles and Hillsboro; and they admit traveling from places such as Nevada and California, where illegal immigrants are prohibited from getting state identification.

Clearly this new action is too effective and should be hamstrung by liberal handwringing. To show how laugh out loud the opponents of this policy really are they actually use two illegal aliens as their example as people who were "falsely accused."

I'm having a real hard time believe that the general public sees those folks as legitimate victims here despite The Oregonians portrayal as such.

We'll make it expensive then help you pay!

School board starts tax on new developments
The North Clackamas School Board last night implemented a new excise tax on residential, commercial, and industrial development. The excise revenue will allow the district to purchase and prepare sites for future schools, and to help defray the cost of new school facilities.

No word on whether this new "make housing more expensive tax" will go to Clackamas school facilities like El Puente Bilingual School.

"El Puente's mission is to offer an enriched bilingual educational experience in which all students achieve high academic standards and celebrate cultural diversity."

This school literally has a requirement that 40% of their students be "native Spanish speaking."

A word from our Principal, GM Garcia
Approximately half of the students in each class come from Spanish speaking homes. The other half live in homes where English is spoken. Both groups attend El Puente because each child wants to become bilingual in their first language plus that of their peers (Spanish and English).

In earlier grades most of the instructional day is in Spanish.

I seriously started this post with the intention of highlighting the absurdity of government making housing more expensive and then offering to help people pay for housing that is too expensive...

Housing and Rental Assistance Information (Clackamas County)
"The demand for low-rent public housing is high. The current waiting time for available units ranges from 18 to 24 months."

But after five minutes on the school district web page I have found enough superflous programs to make your head spin. (Everyone on the Diversity Task Force is going to need to get a real job) It's so hard to focus on the whiners talking about unaffordable housing while at the same time making housing more expensive when the whole "reason" for the tax, which is in theory that the school district needs more money, is so laughable.

It's up to the legislature

Actually, since we have a democrat controlled legislature I probably should have titled this post "It's up to the union." But Teddy K can come out for "illegal ID" if he wants:

Kulongoski described a permit the state could issue, allowing people to drive to and from work, but that would not serve as official identification as would a driver's license.

But Kulongoski will just be the one to sign the bill that the legislature sends him:

Will a customer be able to drive without proof of citizenship or legal immigration status?
The act gives the states the option to issue a “driving privilege only” card, which would be valid as a driver’s license only, and not recognized as an identification card for official federal purposes. The Oregon Legislature must decide whether Oregon will offer such an option.

So let's make sure that in the "special" session we have in February that our "representatives" send our illegal loving governor a bill with no illegal ID provision.

Vote early and vote often (if you are a man)

It's time for liberals to go into fits of self-righteousness and indignation once again, Ann Coulter has a new book out. Immediately the outraged crowd has seized upon the "If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president" quote to harp about.

This is one instance where I actually find myself disagreeing with Coulter. I mean sure, at one time I too thought that the whole "women voting" thing was a big mistake but I've come to learn that we never gave women the right to vote, we gave husbands the right to vote twice!

Healthy illegals

Vote NO on Measure 50

In case you needed a reason (besides patent stupidity) to vote against amending Oregon's constitution to include a tax on a specific product to give government money so our overseers can "provide" health care to children...

Keep in mind that (as I have previously reported) the "Healthy Kids Program" is really the "Healthy Illegals Program."

In the initial report to Governor Kulongoski the recommendation was: "“All is all” –all kids, with immigration status irrelevant" (search terms highlighted for your conveniance)

So pretend for a second that you believe government should (with all the efficiency and customer friendly attitude of the DMV) administer health care, please keep in mind that Measure 50 will serve as one more magnet for illegal aliens to come to our state.

It is not healthy for kids to be surrounded by criminals.

Joy of technology

I'm boycotting any restraunt that has "automatic paper towel dispensors." It was bad enough when we got the blow dryers that don't really dry your hands but now we have to stand their waving our hands (looking like an idiot) in front of a machine in hope that it will have mercy on us and give us a small square of paper towel. This isn't progress.
