The Big Bad 2009 post

I look forward to your witty one-line new years resolutions in the comments section. (for a couple of you it may be "I will stop talking about Daniel's nipples...")

Some things to think about for next year:

Minimum wage earners just received an undeserved raise. If your skills or labor were more valuable you wouldn't need the government to force your employer to pay you more.

The book "Mama voted for Obama" has been released and will probably be coming to Kindergarten class 6th grade reading class at a public school near you.

In the "our homeless are better than your homeless" category; Dignity Village has release a Tent Cities Toolkit which is an "organizing tool focused on issues of homelessness and the role of grassroots, democratic tent cities as a necessary step to resolving homelessness."

This involves "connecting housed and unhoused activists worldwide into a cohesive political force for effective social change."

Anyone who read that without laughing out loud has no sense of humor.

In the "I just can't belive it category" we feature... Dignity Village again!

"Everyone has felt the high gas prices , the high cost of food, and the many job lay off's in the community. Our efforts for being self efficient to pay our bills over the past 9 months have fallen short ."

So wait, a bunch of bums who are mooching off the Portland taxpayers have fallen short at being self sufficient? I think I need to lay down.

But most important, remember that if you have something that you neighbor (possibly your homeless neighbor) doesn't have, it's time to "spread it around."

A case study in insanity

Why doesn't CAUSA allow comments on their blog? How come BlueOregon has banned me (and several others) from commenting on their site? Isn't it funny how Indymedia will delete any comment that doesn't fit their mold?

I must say that I'm having more and more fun reading the "anons" who post here. Needless to say, I can't reason with the unreasonable.

Why not get quotes from local criminals regarding arrests?

Israel pounds Gaza for second day
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum urged Palestinian groups to use "all available means, including martyrdom operations" -- a reference to suicide bombings in Israel -- to "protect the Palestinian people."

"Palestine has never seen an uglier massacre," Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said.

Hamas, which won a parliamentary election in 2006 but was shunned by the West over its refusal to renounce violence and recognize Israel, estimated at least 180 members of its security forces had been killed with at least 15 women and some children.

How many times can a terrorist organization be quoted in a single news article? And they are taken seriously. These are the people who blow themselves up at shopping centers. I keep hearing on the news that people are asking Israel to "avoid civilian casualities" when Hamas' tactic is to target civilians.

Let's hope that Obama will encourage Israel to defend herself from these animals.

McCain still doesn't get it

After 'one heck of a ride,' McCain is moving ahead
"I still think comprehensive immigration reform is very necessary," McCain said.

"If President Obama wants it to be a highest priority, I'm prepared to join in," McCain said. "If not, I'm not going to go out there, out front, because it's obvious it won't succeed unless we get the administration in the lead."

"If somebody's been here for a long period of time and been good citizens, they've worked hard in their community and at their job — look, it's reality and there's not 12 million pairs of handcuffs in America," he said.

We also can't arrest 12 million burglars, drunk drivers or rapists at the same time but we can arrest them when we catch them. It's actually even easier to deal with the illegal aliens because we can deny them things like employment with relative ease.

Flush with cash and ready to support YOUR lifestyle

An Invitation to apply for a job at Lane County
Diversity is a key to the future success of Lane County. We who work for Lane County government are charged with providing effective government services for everyone. Diversity, and the respect for and understanding of the integrity and worth of all culture, peoples and lifestyles is today and will continue to be simply good business (Diversity Policy LM 2.390).

Have an exotic lifestyle that causes normal people to recoil in horror? Do you insist on taking a "hacky-sack break" every ten minutes to realign your spirit with Mother Earth? Maybe you insist that casual unprotected sex with other anonymous men while smoking pot is a good way to spend your lunch break?

Well maybe those lifestyles qualify you for a rigorous position with Lane County... a position such as... 908-000 EXTRA HELP - GENERAL POOL - Various

Green means stop?

Tri-Met alert:
MAX Blue Line disrupted westbound between SE 102nd and Gateway.

Any reports of Hummer owners having trouble getting to work today? How about if you drive a Prius? Hippies everywhere must be wondering how Mother Nature could do this to them.

Sunday night complaint

As it was explained to me earlier, the news is written "for everyone." I would assume that this includes Obama voters. So I guess that it makes sense that KPTV actually put up a bullet point list that suggested the following:

Dress warmly
Stay dry
Eat healthy and responsibly
Don't walk on ice

Needless to say this completely ruined my plans to eat irresponsibly and unhealthily tonight. In the day and age of the "WARNING: do not hit self in head" labels on hammers I still wonder why my local news has to suggest that I "dress warmly" when it's snowing out.

I can't believe voters want to enforce the law

ACLU, activists sue Columbia County over illegal workers measure
The American Civil Liberties Union joined with state and local worker activists Thursday to jointly file a lawsuit in Columbia County Circuit Court aimed at scuttling a measure passed in November that would make it a crime for employers inside the county to hire illegal aliens.

Um, it was already a crime for employers to hire illegal aliens. The problem was that there was no one enforcing the law at the federal level.

The measure would require employers to verify the legality of their employees through E-Verify, a U.S. Department of Homeland Security-operated database where employers can input data, such as Social Security information, and retrieve information regarding a person’s legal status to work in the United States.

Everyone who gets a job must "prove" that they are legally eligible to work. This means that they fill out Form I-9. E-Verify just gives employers the ability to make sure that the information given on that form is not fraudulent.

It also gives everyday citizens the assurance that their Social Security Number isn't being used by an illegal alien for work purposes.

So a measure that increases employment opportunities for eligible workers and prevents ID theft is being opposed by the ACLU and a few folks who think that enforcing the law equals "intolerance."

Open to suggestions

Are you kidding me? You need to steal the fruits of our labor instead of eliminating one of the following state agencies?

Keep in mind that most of those agencies have multiple divisions within the agency. Then the divisions have offices. Then the offices have to have units.

And I'm sure that each unit needs a cultural competency coordinator.

Elite want to further fleece the sheep

Give kicker money to schools, Oregon business leaders suggest
Oregon's top business leaders are weighing in on one of the state's touchiest tax issues: recommending that the state divert at least some of the popular kicker tax rebates into a rainy day fund to help protect schools from budget cuts.

Leaders of several of the state's most influential companies included the proposal to curtail the tax rebates in a series of recommendations they will make today at the annual Oregon Leadership Summit in Portland.

The summit, organized by the Oregon Business Council, brings together hundreds of members of the state's business and political elite and has been a powerful force in recent years for building consensus on a range of governmental policies.

Gov. Ted Kulongoski is focused on his other tax-raising priorities but says the kicker is an issue "the Legislature should grapple with," said his spokeswoman, Anna Richter Taylor.

Our ruling benefactors who know how to spend our money better than we do hate the kicker not just because we get to keep more of what we earned, they hate it because they had their greedy little paws on it and then had to give it back.

They imagine all the programs they could have created, all the political support they could have bought and the choices they could have made for us. But instead of a new "commission on culturual competency" the lowly peasants of Oregon get to spend the fruits of their labor on what they think is best for themselves and their families.

Idle your SUV

Coldest weather in 5 years heading to Oregon
Forecasters say some of the coldest weather in the past five years is heading to Oregon for the weekend.

A double blast of cold air is expected to hit Western Oregon on Friday, and again Sunday, with snow all the way down to the Willamette Valley floor on Sunday.

It just seems appropriate to link to one of the funniest articles I've read on global warming in the last several years...

Dems really care about workers

Urge the Senate to Extend E-Verify
Last week the Department of Labor issued a grim report on the state of jobs in America. More than 500,000 Americans lost their job in November and more than 2 million so far in 2008. In response, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) issued a statement urging the Senate to pass a long-term extension of E-Verify. Take action now by calling and/or faxing your Senator and asking them to add an amendment to the auto industry bailout to attach H.R. 6633.

Just yesterday I went to a local fast food restraunt and they had the "this employer participates in E-Verify" sign on their door. That's a restraunt where your kids or my kids would have a chance at employment.

E-Verify is a voluntary program that allows employers to make sure they are only hiring LEGAL WORKERS.

Next year we will have a congress that won't care about American jobs being stolen, make those phone calls/faxes/emails today!!

Who said what now?

RE: comments on this blog

I leave them completely unregulated. I have deleted a total of three comments over the years and they were extreme examples that were threats to my family. Other than that I don't care too much what is said. (just don't make fun of my big ears)

I take ownership of my posts, that's it. I sure get tired of repeating this.

The Management

(At least it's funny when you guys make pictures like this of me, I award extra points for creativity in your hatred)

How about just "go"

Translated from Spanish
The Multnomah County Health Department is committed to providing accessible health information for all the communities we serve. Below you will find links to information developed by the Ministry of Health of Mexico. Titled, “Go Healthy, Return Healthy,” these pamphlets are intended especially for people who migrate back and forth from Mexico to the United States.

Why on earth do our government agencies continue to "partner" with Mexico for things like school curriculum and health care? It's like the Japanese asking Detroit how to remain profitable.

Multnomah County is a huge health care provider. They can make completely irrational decisions since they are not market based. Subscribing to Mexican medicinal advice which is clearly intended for the illegal alien population is a decision that I don't think private health care providers would make.

Illegal rapes, Oregonian ignores

Beaverton rape suspect may have more victims, police say
Police say a man accused of raping a 19-year-old woman at gunpoint may have other victims after officers found assorted women's underwear in his Beaverton apartment.

Silvestre Cervantes-Avila, 21, is accused of the Nov. 10 assault on the woman.

Police obtained a search warrant for his apartment and found large amounts of drugs, the gun and several pairs of women's underwear, leading investigators to suspect there may be more sexual-assault victims, Yazzolino said.

He's now in the Washington County jail with an ICE hold. Now I know that it is not newsworthy that he's here illegaly, that's why the Oregonian didn't see fit to print that. They even deleted the comment that someone left questioning his immigration status on their website.

I guess we have to wait until a politician or editorial writer's wife or daughter gets raped before something gets done about this. As long as it's just the taxpaying peasants who are in danger it seems to be ok to welcome the criminals.

NOTE: the Oregonlive comment section is now full of sheeple saying it doesn't matter if he was here illegaly. Great bulwarks of the first amendment those newspapers are, deleting comments that they disagree with.

call CSI quick

I love the local news. Not just because of great lines like "now here's a story thats a little fishy" and it is about a sushi restraunt. No, it's because they always ask the opinion of Local Idiot, the dumbest creature on planet earth.

Now which act do you think was attributed to the "tough economy" tonight?

A) coupon clipping

B) shopping less

C) kidnapping someone and burning their face with a hot knife to extract money from them

It's as if Local Idiot thinks some previously successful accountant woke up today and said "gosh, my 401(k) isn't doing so hot, I guess I'll go kidnap and burn someone for a few hundred dollars."

Newsflash: criminals oppose punishment

Local Inmates React to ICE Deportation Program
A government program sends foreign nationals who commit crimes back to their home countries.

More than 10,000 criminal illegal immigrants have been deported this year from the Pacific Northwest, according to officials.


But for a lot of Jackson County immigrants they've lived here most of their lives and now say they will have little if anything when they get back to their home countries.

Rafel Avina says he's just here because we wants to stay close to his five kids.

"That's why I stay here," he says. "If i was like anybody else, I could run and be free, but I got kids."

{{Starts to sob}}

[ICE agent Neil Clark] says both Villa and Avina have been arrested and convicted for meth related charges.

I really believe that our news agencies are so out of touch that they think we will feel sorry for a meth user/dealer with five kids who is here illegaly. They do a good job of not asking the follow ups like:

1. Which American job were you stealing while you were here?

2. Did you even have a job or were you on welfare?

3. If you had a job, whose SSN did you use?

4. Do you feel bad about stealing someone's identity? Ruining their credit and messing up their tax return?

Our new economy?

Peddling for a pretty penny
Every day last winter, Thomas Sexton left his high school guidance counselor's office at 1 p.m. and went to the nearby Albertsons in South Eugene. He stood outside and asked anyone coming in or out, "Excuse me, do you have any spare change?"

Panhandling is a last resort for most, but a study by the Public Broadcasting Service and published online found the practice can be a lucrative activity that often earns thousands of dollars per year in large cities.

Begging may not be a career, but the homeless said it should be treated like a job.

"Back then," he said, "it was all for drugs."

Besides paying for food and cigarettes, his panhandling money is currently going toward a big splurge - a night in a hotel.

The death of shame in this country is amazing. Imagine waking up and saying to yourself: "I'm on welfare and I beg for money... I should do an interview with the local college newspaper!"

That the Daily Emerald has a sidebar for "What makes a panhandle successful" makes me wonder if they are trying to tell their students something. They actually have this as a tip:

Be professional: Treat panhandling as a job. For most people who are begging, it's the only option they have. If you are in this situation, be professional and work hard because it's likely the only job you have and it's probably your only income.

State flying their own "jet"

Flying your jet to congress to beg for tax dollars not only shows incredible stupidity, it also shows a lack of need.

The fact that the state of Oregon has ONCE AGAIN posted the job opening for "Art therapist" shows stupidity and a lack of need for more of our money.

Let me say it again because it's coming: NO NEW TAXES. Not on "the rich," not on cigarettes, not a new fee on car registration. They don't need more of our money!

Art is a luxury we can't afford right now

The Percent for Art legislation, passed in 1975, guides the acquisition of Oregon's State Art Collection which includes more than 2,500 original art works.

Oregon Revised Statutes sets aside "not less than 1% of the direct construction funds of new or remodeled state buildings with construction budgets of $100,000 or greater for the acquisition of art work which may be an integral part of the building, attached thereto, or capable of display in other State Buildings".

This art, titled "Keystone" sits outside the public safety training academy. It's time for the legislature to focus on public safety with our scarce tax dollars, not worthless bronze sculptures.

You are going to hear a lot about the need for new taxes in the next session, just remember, they will use your money to buy stuff like this.

Eco nut enjoys yoga in prison

The latest from Tre - 11/18/08
Greetings from Herlong, CA. This place is positioned in a valley with mountains surrounding in all directions. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets have blessed me while sitting barefoot in the grass they only recently planted. Up until about a month and half ago it was all dirt and rocks.

A yoga class is offered 5 days a week as well as Pilates and other fitness/wellness modalities. There is even a wellness library.

On the recreation yard (which is where I spend most of my time) there is a huge dirt walkin' path (twice around is a mile). In the center are 2 baseball/softball fields, a full soccer field, 3 basketball courts, 6 handball/racquetball courts, a volleyball pit, horseshoe pit, exercise bars and equipment and 2 bocci lawns (my Italian ancestors will be very pleased). There is an indoor rec. hall with a basketball court, many cardio machines, a ping pong table, fitness rooms (where we do yoga), an arts and crafts room and best of all... a music/band room.

Yoga classes... $0
Cardio machines... $0
Three basketball courts... $0
Realizing that this is a letter from a prison inmate who was convicted of domestic terrorism... priceless.

My only consolation is that he can't get vegan meals.

Criminals sue, win

The federal government plans to give legal status to certain unauthorized immigrants who applied for a 1986 amnesty program but were either unfairly excluded or never received a response to their request.
It's not known just how many unauthorized immigrants will qualify, but the number is thought to be about 10,000, said Sharon Rummery, a CIS spokeswoman in the San Francisco regional office.
"It's about time there was a resolution for the over 10,000 immigrants who were in immigration legal limbo because of the inefficiencies of the immigration office," he said. "Hopefully this will be the beginning not only for those who were not allowed to apply in 1986, but also any future legalizations for the millions that still have not be able to adjust their immigration status."
In completely unrelated news...
But at least this proves that amnesty is a sweet deal that wouldn't result in complicated litigation that makes citizens out of criminals decades after the fact.

The elephant gun in the room

Attacks on campus
Mid-morning on Wednesday, many University students found the alarmingly titled "Campus Crime Alert" waiting in their e-mail inbox. As requested by the University's Department of Public Safety, the message was sent out to all residence hall occupants and publicized the attempted abduction of a female student that occurred late Sunday, Nov. 9.

A former music major, Knowles often walked past Pioneer Cemetery on the way to the music building and rarely saw patrols near the area. Larkin, the DPS officer, cautioned, "At night, I would avoid the graveyard at all costs." Two of the recent incidents have occurred around the cemetery.

DPS suggests that students walk in large groups along well-lit paths that are frequented by other people. Larkin also urges students to call an Assault Prevention Shuttle, a DPS escort or even a taxi for late-night trips home.

Why are students over the age of 21 not encouraged to carry a firearm to protect themselves? I'd love to see what happens to the on campus crime stats the month following an attempted rapist getting shot.

I know the school is very busy teaching queer theories but maybe take an hour break for a CHL class sometime.

When the economy gets tough, the tough hire family coordinators

Multnomah County (home of the unopened jail and naked bike riders) now hiring...

Family Involvement Coordinator - Bilingual Spanish
$35,934.48 - $44,244.72 annually
A 4% bilingual pay premium will be added in addition to the base pay.

The Family Involvement Coordinator is responsible for the day–to-day operation of the Family Involvement/Parent Education portion of the new 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant that will serve Lynch Wood Elementary School.

Conduct home visits, as needed, to help remove barriers and enable families to access needed services. Develop strong referral system within 21 LCC coordinators to serve both parents and children. Develop and maintain sound, accurate record keeping & documentation systems including use of a database.

In a nutshell: Through the government school you will find Spanish speaking families, go to their homes to make sure they are getting all the welfare they can and then make a database tracking that information.

At least in this case I probably can't complain about government "tracking US citizens" with that database...

Diversity is never having to be around a white person

Diversity still an issue on campus, some students say
Each day, University senior Josué Peña-Juarez carries more with him than meets the eye. He walks tall, brown glasses over his dark eyes, smile on his face as he immerses himself into everyday University culture.

The San Diego native grew up primarily speaking Spanish at home and received a bilingual education at school. Peña-Juarez said he constantly felt comfortable, surrounded by other students of color and other native Spanish speakers.

"We moved in the middle of winter," Peña-Juarez said. "I was forced to speak English; there was no one who looked like me. There was no one to speak Spanish with, so I spoke English." Peña-Juarez identifies most with being Chicano, in terms of social, political and cultural consciousness, he said.

Imagine a University student saying that he only "feels comfortable" when surrounded by other white students. This MEChA intern is upset that diversity isn't engaging in enough discussion about diversity.

How about this: it's not "diversity" to only feel "comfortable" with a group of people who share your ethnic background. If you don't think that the University of Oregon doesn't discuss diversity enough at this point maybe the problem is you. The rest of us are sick of this overused buzzword.

You can't take what we already give you

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...

"Take power" or "derive power from the consent of the governed." It's just tomato/tomato isn't it? Hail our new "ruler."

Very very very very right?

A booby trap for illegal immigration
Harder to see perhaps is something President Bush pursued that was savvy, farsighted, humane and very, very right.

The president from a border state tried, in vain, to get our nation to wrap its mind around the reality of 12 million illegal immigrants living in our midst.

Unfortunately, last year, a comprehensive reform effort fizzled in Congress.

And if we hold people accountable for breaking the law then the sun will stop shining, the oceans will dry up and and Dora the Explorer might get cancelled. The Oregonian makes bizzare statements about how "state tax revenues would decline by roughly half a billion dollars a year" unless we grant amnesty.

For the sake of argument lets pretend that I agree with that. What's their point? If you are a cash benefit to The State it's ok to break the law? How much economic activity is caused by meth?

Once you accept the premise that industry performance, employment numbers and tax revenue are more important than society living under a set of agreed upon rules then you open the can of worms labeled anarchy.

Which industry can't perform if they follow all the EPA rules? What about the business that could survive if they pay less than minimum wage? Do you want to lose those jobs, lose that industry and hurt tax revenue? Then let them break the law.

He found a rationale?

Oh no, Obama's secret service detail is carrying... an "assault rifle!" But he hates those and said “It’s hard for me to find a rationale for having a 17-clip semiautomatic.” I guess "saving your life" isn't a good enough rationale. I suppose he just means that our benefactors in government get to have those. The rest of us can "hope" that we don't encounter any threats.

Due to the upcoming changes in the political landscape, order volumes have signifigantly increased.
We have been experiencing an overwhelming increase in customer inquiries...

Get those orders in now. Join the NRA and the OFF. The second amendment is not about duck hunting.

Ann Coulter column

The Reign of Lame Falls Mainly on McCain
Last night was truly a historic occasion: For only the second time in her adult life, Michelle Obama was proud of her country!

This was such an enormous Democratic year that even John Murtha won his congressional seat in Pennsylvania after calling his constituents racists. It turns out they're not racists -- they're retards.

Republicans lost this presidential election, and I don't blame the messenger; I blame the message. How could Republicans go after B. Hussein Obama (as he is now known) on planning to bankrupt the coal companies when McCain supports the exact same cap and trade policies and earnestly believes in global warming?

Informative and witty. If you don't want to read another dry "why republicans lost" analysis then read Ann's column.

We're so shocked

The day after yesterday

There are still some results waiting to be tallied in Oregon but there isn't much for me to be happy about yesterday. Looking forward I plan to keep these ideas in mind:

1. I still have a voice that has been used in the past to successfuly voice opposition to things like amnesty. I will continue to use that voice.

2. I honesty believe that Obama's ideas are bad and will have negative consequences. We have one party rule in Washington so they will get all the blame.

3. I have a 2 month window to purchase all the firearms I want.

4. I think that in response to some of Obama's very extreme plans we will see the opposition party return to some of it's principles that made me choose to be a Republican in the first place.

5. People get the government they deserve. If Oregon wants to double tax income, ask governments permission so that you can build a new deck, pay teachers regardless of performance and refuse to lock up criminals, then I don't know what to say.

Another illegal alien on welfare

AP: Obama aunt from Kenya living in US illegally
Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

It was not immediately clear how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order.

Please please please, let this open a discussion on illegal immigration and amnesty in the presidential election. Deport her tomorrow so that Obama can come out strong for blanket amnesty and defend taxpayer services for illegals.

Barack Obama did not know a relative was living in the United States illegally for the past nearly four years prior to today's Associated Press report, "but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed," the campaign said Saturday in a statement.

All "appropriate" laws should be followed. I guess that the inappropriate ones can be ignored.

I want to be a scab

I had never wanted to be a union member until the other day when I drove past the striking Boeing workers. They had a giant "scab of the month" banner naming one of their co-workers who, and this is shocking, decided to keep working to support himself. I want my name on a banner like that.

For a long time I've thought that if you wanted to do something positive for taxpayers, gun owners, property owners, unborn babies and children the best thing you could do in Oregon was weaken the unions. Kari Chisholm (who hates black people, I keep saying it so it must be true) really proved my point:

You can't be a progressive unless you're pro-labor
The good folks of organized labor are the only people putting substantial and sustained resources into fighting for progressive policies.

If we didn't have organized labor fighting for progressive policies and Democratic candidates, we'd have lost the battle long, long ago.

But to point out that unions are not always self serving, Chisholm does note that unions actively work to elect people who will screw them:

If we get universal health care in this country, it's highly likely that individual union members will pay more and get less than they get under their current negotiated contracts.

And yet, everywhere you turn, it's organized labor that's leading the grassroots fight for universal health care.

Keep that in mind when you vote on your ballot measures that deal with unions and the public money they use to campaign for socialism.

You have the right to ask for help from elections staff or from a friend or family member. There are some people who cannot help you vote, for example, your boss or a union officer from your job.

PCUN is a union hall. A union for illegal aliens. I can see the legal argument now: "He's not really my union officer because I'm not legally able to work, now give me my ballot."

Please see post below for part one of this travesty.

Yesterday you marched... today you vote?

Event will provide voters assistance
Individual's needing help filling out their voter's ballot are invited to a voter assistance forum in Salem on Thursday.

The event, sponsored by Voz Hispana's Political Action Committee, will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Miguel's Sports Bar & Mexican Restaurant, 1410 Lancaster Drive NE.

This is the English version of the article, a Spanish version is also up on their website. I'm not sure which one appeared in the print version of the paper.

VOZ is the group that helped put up the illegal alien day labor site in Portland. VOZ puts up pictures of their "workers" on their website where you can't see anyone's face. (PCUN does this as well)

There are two people that I would like to see attend this event: someone with a video camera and a Republican party official who insists that amensty will result in more Republican votes.

Vote no on all bond measures

So I went on the Clackamas school district site tonight to follow up on Lars' stuff today and was immediately disgusted. (this was without getting to the "hookup" clothing) Their calendar is one big illegal alien celebration with our tax dollars.

October Meetings and Events
Ready, Set, Go: Kindergarten readiness class
Presented in English & Spanish for children who will enter kindergarten in North Clackamas in the fall 2009 ...

Strengthening Families
This class (in Spanish) is for parents of youths age 10 to 14 who want to help kids avoid drug & alcohol abuse. Child care is provided.

Beginning Spanish
Child care is provided.

Learn English
This free adult class is for beginning English learners. Child care provided.
By "free" they mean "that schmuck Daniel who goes to work every day is paying for it."

These are the first few items on the calendar. There is even an event that is listed in Spanish only. If I was a space alien who just landed and looked at this calendar I would think that the public schools in Clackamas existed only to provide child care to Spanish speakers.

A cultural tradition

Weekend party turns violent as Gresham police attacked
Police today said 38 officers responded Saturday to a birthday party that turned into a riot, in what Gresham police are saying is the city's largest melee in almost 20 years.

The riot stemmed from a Quinceanera, a celebration for a Latina turning 15. Police said more than 100 people attended the party, and many appeared intoxicated.

The event was held at GSI Community Center, 1493 N.E. Cleveland Ave., where police have been called 20 times in the past 18 months. Officers said they have been assaulted there six times.

The news report last night absolutely refused to mention that this is a Mexican cultural thing. The online text version of that newscast can be seen here. Sounds like this was just a cultural misunderstanding and the officers who responded, and where assaulted for their trouble, should probably get some diversity training.

Coming from the amnesty party?

This coming from the party that overwhelmingly suppports amnesty? That's what I love about election time, democrats actually have to pretend to care about supporting gun rights, punishing criminals and opposing illegal aliens. They are lying through their teeth but at least it shows us that they know where Americans stand on these issues.

Lose money every sale, make up for it with volume

Ride the bus? Maybe not
With a shrinking budget, Lane Transit District is facing route cuts at its busiest time

Lane Transit District has proposed a plan to cut its total services by 15 percent, a move that could eliminate 13 routes, raise fares and affect thousands of University staff and students.

The cuts come at a time when more people are using LTD services than ever before, Eyster said. The LTD Board will vote on the proposed changes in November.

This is a perfect example of government running things. Offer up a service that is not paid for by the end user, run short of money, make life difficult for those people who chose to become dependent on government.

Depending on government for your transportation is a bad idea, depending on government for your health care could be fatal.

Daniel's voters guide

I was going to do an extensive voters guide but decided that it's not really neccessary. There is one steadfast rule:

To pick the leader of the free world you just look to see who the MTV crowd is supporting and vote the opposite way.

"Sorry Fred, without proper cultural competency training from the state of Oregon I'm just not interested in staying clean and sober"

Opening day

One hen mallard on opening day for me. Several ducks who must have been wearing armor got away...

Friday, October 10, 2008

If they wanted to protect us why didn't they do this earlier?

If Measure 57, the "talk loudly but carry a small stick" crime measure, was so important why did our democrat politicians wait to put it out until there was a real anti-crime measure (Measure 61) on the ballot?

It never ceases to amaze me how much liberals want to coddle criminals.

I don't know where to begin

With new reports showing a huge increase in crime relating to and around medical marijuana it was time for our lawmakers to step up to the plate and do something... like participate in the Oregon Medical Cannabis Awards 2008.

Both Representatives Peter Buckley and Ben Cannon will be in attendence according to the advertisement for the show.

And what a show it will be. When last years "winner" was described as "a very well-groomed bud with a pleasant aroma, not too rough on the lungs, and great taste and potency" and the addition this year of hemp-based wedding dresses, this is THE place to rub elbows with the upper crust of society.

And just in case you thought elected officials would be the only folks showing support for smoking narcotics fear not, taxpayer funded DHS will be there and has gone in the past (.mp3) to give talks on the "rules" about marijuana.

And of course last year "[a]ttorneys in attendance earned 4 CLE credits from the Oregon State Bar for their participation."

Way to go Oregon.

The great debate

Wishful thinking on my part: Things I would like to hear McCain say tonight.

I was wrong about amnesty, since the slowdown of the economy I have recognized that importing cheap labor hurts the American worker and exporting millions of dollars to Mexico hurts local business.

The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting, it has to do with keeping all potentially tyrannical governments in check and personal defense.

I support a woman's righ to choose... where to send her children to school under a voucher system.

I don't lower taxes because they help stimulate the economy, that's just a pleasant side effect. I support lower taxes because it is morally wrong to take 50% of someone's hard earned money no matter how much they make. Economic freedom means not having the fruits of your labor go to needle exchange programs which my opponent supports.

Green card + home loan

Good old Cornelious Oregon, not far from Centro Cultural. Stop in to inquire about an amnesty lawyer, stay for the zero down, zero cost home loans. What's this I keep hearing about a "mortgage crisis"?

Thursday, October 02, 2008

Racist organization: the true prohpet

I guess that they forgot to tell the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals but someone did predict that the illegal alien home loans would turn out badly:

Of the loans made to Latinos in 2005 and 2006, 1 in 12 will end in foreclosure.

In 2008 we expect to see approximately 20,000 foreclosures a week.

Foreclosure rates have not yet peaked in Hispanic communities.

So who made these statements? It was La Raza at their A Stronger America Together: Advocating for Latino Families event. But with all the business sense of the average socialist this same group insists on pushing these mortgages anyways and strives for a "Fair Housing System that Works for Latinos."

The whole "borrow money and then pay it back" system seemed to be working just fine to me.

It's back... Obama will probably threaten them

This video was taken down for a period but is now back. In other censorship related news: the Obama camp is sending lawyers after radio and tv stations that air NRA ads. They threaten their FCC license. I guess in Obama's world the government can prohibit certain speech.

Timothy Sandos: a real prophet

The (illegal) American Dream
May 3, 2007

The nation’s big banks, scrambling for customers, are pitching mortgages to illegal immigrants.

Two years ago, making home loans to people who are in the U.S. illegally was largely limited to community banks that wanted to revitalize neighborhoods by offering low-cost mortgages to local workers. There are signs that these loans, which comply with regulatory requirements and which represent a sliver of the nation’s $10 trillion mortgage market, are starting to take off in the broader banking industry.

Whoever hits the street first with these loans will be the winner,” says Timothy Sandos, president of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals. The group says at least $85 billion of mortgages could be originated from 375,000 households occupied by undocumented renters, up from an estimated $44 billion from 216,000 households a few years ago.

Good call Timothy. You bet $700,000,000,000 that being a racist who lends money to criminals would be a financial winner. Unfortunately it looks like you bet with our money.

From his bio at The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals:
Sandos was executive vice president of Emerging Markets for St. Louis-based CitiMortgage, where he led the company's programs and initiatives that targeted minority and underserved market segments throughout the nation.

Buy lemons, sell lemonade

I hate to be the eternal optimist here but when I see the DJIA drop 777 points my first thought is BUY BUY BUY. Is there anyone who doesn't think that our markets will gain that back and then some in the near future? (not to mention 20 years from now)

As opposed to the anti-Christian sentiment featured daily...

Why are all the Oregon liberals in a tizzy about his video being distributed as an advertisement in Sunday's Oregonian? Richard Dawkins is great for bashing Christians but if a group shows what radical Islam is about we have some sort of "hate mongering?"

Islamists, you would think, would hold the same social positions on abortion, gay marriage, fisting being taugh in the third grade classroom, etc as Christians. So why do liberals insist on defending them? The only position they seem to share is their hatred of America...

Ann Coulter column

They Gave Your Mortgage to a Less Qualified Minority
Under Clinton, the entire federal government put massive pressure on banks to grant more mortgages to the poor and minorities. Clinton's secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew Cuomo, investigated Fannie Mae for racial discrimination and proposed that 50 percent of Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's portfolio be made up of loans to low- to moderate-income borrowers by the year 2001.

Threatening lawsuits, Clinton's Federal Reserve demanded that banks treat welfare payments and unemployment benefits as valid income sources to qualify for a mortgage. That isn't a joke -- it's a fact.

Now, at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars, middle-class taxpayers are going to be forced to bail out the Democrats' two most important constituent groups: rich Wall Street bankers and welfare recipients.

The solution to a government created problem is not more government.

In the mainstream media and around the watercooler I don't hear people talking about what the private sector might do to solve this or how government could remove themselves from the equation to allow private investment to work it's magic.

You made a bad CHOICE

I live in House District 26 and have gotten the Matt Winguard mailer regarding his 2001 Assualt 4 conviction for "thumping" his child on the head.

I took two things into consideration at the time: seven years had gone past and I believe that we are overzealous these days in what we consider "abuse" of our kids.

One of the abuses was something that I would consider normal for Cub Scouts:

Wingard took the 7 year old on a two-day, 18 mile hike, walking fast and at times leaving the child behind and not allowing for rest.

That being said, I am now having some serious reservations about the guy. This is an exchange from his interview with KATU (and yes, I'm borrowing from BlueOregon here)

Interviewer: Why did you hit him on the head?
Wingard: It was just a dumb mistake.
Int: What were you thinking at the time?
Wingard: I wasn't. I mean I think when you make a dumb mistake like that you aren't thinking.

What a childish answer. If you said "I made a horrible choice, I was wrong, I've done what I can to make amends and it's not who I am today" that would be different.

Take full responsibility for your actions, explain to us your position today and move forward. We'll decide if that is good enough.

Lars is waiting for your call and I'm wating to hear it.

These boots are made for walking?

In case you thought it was just one or two nuts in Portland that want to force you to walk, bike or take the bus with that really pleasant smelling guy in the back here is a collection of government pages with the phrase "out of their cars" in it:

The Tigard project is part of a broader strategy to get people out of their cars and to promote a healthier, more sustainable community.

...demonstrate that there is a viable alternative to the car culture and that the downtown could be greatly enlivened by getting people out of their cars.

Senate Committee on Transportation
Discusses alternative ways to get commuters out of their cars.

Alternatives are not really working, hard to get people out of their cars. (really?)

Lake Oswego
If these people got out of their cars and into transit, that much room would be freed up for freight. (Resisting the urge to say "what do you mean by 'these people'")

2008 Northwest Transportation Conference
Getting People Out of their Cars, Travel-Smart and Other Mode Shift Strategies

The list goes on and on. We are simply "these people" to our benefactors in government and they want to control our lives.

But I don't LIKE you

I hate election time. It's that horrible time when Democrats make me actually want to support Republicans I can't stand.

The NRA sent me a Gordon Smith bumper sticker yesterday and I've actually considered slapping it on my car! Any other time of year I can't stand Gordon Smith.

But when I get out of my emotional fervor where I start listing all the reasons why Smith does not deserve my vote let alone my support and I think about the election in practical terms:

Smith is our only statewide elected Republican

Smith will at least support our judges

Smith may not be an R but he does count towards which party has the majority

Smith may have voted for amnesty but he has turned around (sort of) and Merkley will vote for amnesty and then give our new guests welfare

At least Smith won't vote to take my guns

Not a ringing endorsement but just like Obama makes McCain look palatable, Merkley is making Smith look like a bargain for Oregon. After the election I can go back to disliking him for another 5 1/2 years.

The new Michael Vick

It's sad to think that there are many people who think this way.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Merkley's party to punishing criminals: oppose

Measure 61: Creates mandatory minimum prison sentences for certain theft, identity theft, forgery, drug, and burglary crimes.
Democratic Party of Oregon OPPOSES

Measure 62: Amends constitution. Allocates 15% of lottery proceeds to public safety fund for crime prevention, investigation, prosecution.
Democratic Party of Oregon OPPOSES

So that's where the dems stand on crime this November. It's pretty black and white: send criminals to jail? NO. Using money for public safety instead of, for instance, public art? NO.

And don't talk to me about the legislature referred alternative to punishing criminals. Normal people want criminals segregated from society where they can't victimize us, democrats want them to have "treatment" in our backyards while making sure not to hurt their self-esteem.

CAUSAnuts know big words

Most of the CAUSAnuts can't speak a lick of English which just makes it that much funnier when they write letters to the editor trying to use big words to justify lawbreaking.

“Unfortunately, extremists are less about enacting true, meaningful immigration reform and more about confusing an already complicated issue in order to push their own agenda and ideals."

Speaking as an "extremist" I am not only "less" about enacting "meaningful" immigration reform and more about enforcing the law. I know that is complicated.

Let me explain it: In America we have laws, you break them or you don't. If you break them you get punished.

I realize that this might be very different than in Mexico. There you break a law and you have the "complicated issue" of how much to bribe the law enforcement officer (there probably should be air quotes around that one) or how to breathe while lying in a puddle of your own blood.

My "agenda" and "ideals" involve DON'T BREAK OUR LAWS.

Back to school, back to Mexico and back to school again

Are you an illegal alien student who travels between Oregon and Mexico with great frequency?

Do you need to mule in some more meth for classmates but don't want that "absent" on your permanent record?

Or maybe the border patrol kept you from coming for the first day of school.

Well never fear because now our tax dollars have the solution:

An outgrowth of Mexico's National Education System, the Transfer Document contains academic and health information on binational migrant students. It also is used as a binational report card with educational enrollment information that allows migrant students from Mexico to enter their local public school after the starting date.

It's the "tardy slip" that says "I would have been on time but I got deported."

To be a servant

39 percent raise proposed for Ore. Governor
Many of Oregon’s public servants will get huge raises next year if a commission tasked with examining their pay gets its way.

The Oregon Public Official’s Compensation Commission recommends raises ranging from 22 to 54 percent.

It calls for raises of 39-percent for the Secretary of State, the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Labor Commissioner.

I love the campaign commercials that compare how much we spend in Iraq (you know, that place we fight the terrorists so we can have seven years of no attacks on American soil) to how much healthcare/groceries it could buy a "working family."

How about how many bags of groceries could a working family buy with the raise money going to the our benefactors in state government?

They do the agriculture work

Mexican cartel blamed for Oregon reservation pot
Officials say a Mexican drug cartel turned remote patches of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation into vast marijuana plantations the past two growing seasons.

Two Mexicans suspected of tending nearly 7,000 plants were arraigned Thursday in U.S. District Court in Portland.

I'm hoping that Oregon's nursery industry helps pay for these illegal aliens defense because they obviously have good experience tending to plants.

He should camp at Smith's warehouse

Self-described liberal continues protest against day labor center
Tom Wenning calls himself a liberal and says he disagrees with conservative commentator Lars Larson on just about every issue.

Except one.

Several times a week, Wenning stages a one-man protest outside Portland's taxpayer-sponsored day laborer hiring center. He opposes illegal immigration, and thinks the city is promoting it by giving day laborers, many of them undocumented workers, a place to seek work.

Good for you Tom. I sure wish this story had a quote from some city leaders. Imagine "citizens should back off while we allow criminals to break more laws..."

A novel idea

Oregon should help employers follow the law
Brad Avakian, the new commissioner of Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries, has a sensible idea: Help employers follow the law before they run afoul of it.

After all, state and federal labor laws cover myriad details, such as what questions prospective employers can ask, how workers must be paid and when it's legal to fire them.

Employers who break the law risk fines of $1,000 or more. If workers go to court and win, the cost of misunderstanding labor law can be heavy indeed.

Noticeabley lacking: how to avoid hiring illegal aliens who are not eligible to work. I sure would like to see more workplace whistleblowers with regards to illegal labor practices that hurt American workers.

And Obama says ICE officials are bad

Mexican official: Oregon man drowned in own blood
A Mexican prosecutor says an Oregon tourist drowned in his own blood while in police custody.

Sam Botner of Yancalla, Oregon, was arrested on Aug. 27 in the resort of San Jose del Cabo and was later found dead in a jail cell. Prosecutors say a surveillance video shows officers beating Botner.

But the Mexicans (and Obama) in the United States are constantly fretting that ICE officials are "terrorizing" the criminal aliens who have broken into our country.

Knocking down the doors of the undocumented

Washington Country is now cracking down on the undocumented!! Their method is "door-to-door license compliance checking" and fines of up to $500 will be levied on those without the proper documentation to be in the county!!

I'm talking of course about dogs. Illegal aliens will still receive the usual welfare and a blind eye from law enforcement.

I'm still waiting for Obama to talk about the "gestapo tactics" being used to "tear families apart" with regards to the dog laws.

Racism by any other name would stink as much

Minority program under investigation
A minority hiring program that was criticized last year for providing special treatment to racially diverse faculty is now under federal investigation.

Since August, the United States Department of Justice has been investigating whether the Underrepresented Minority Recruitment Program is in violation of Title Seven of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating against an individual on the basis of race.

The University of Oregon is using your tax dollars to violate the civil rights act. The openly discriminate on the basis of race. They pay employees different salaries based on race. And when they get called on it the whining about diversity starts.

Support American auto workers... buy a Honda?

There was a lot of "our jobs are going overseas" stuff from the Obama rally last night. An autoworker actually said that it started with Bush.

It starts with the consumer. How many Toyota Prius' were in the parking lot of that DNC event? Insisting that you want a product to thrive for the purpose of creating jobs and then buying a competing product is insanity.

Obama can't make you buy a GM vehicle and he didn't ask you to. Some unexplained method was going to be used to "keep jobs from going overseas." If you are worried about jobs at Burger King then stop eating at the McDonalds next door.

But while I'm on the subject, how about the workers who lose their jobs to illegal aliens? How about the firearm manufacturers who Obama would like to put out of bussiness with lawsuits? What about Kahr and Kel-Tec who make handguns for concealed carry that he would like to outlaw? What about StagArms which makes AR-15 rifles that he would like to ban?

Would those workers be featured at the next Repulican convention in four years?

Don't live in fear... unless you are criminals

Michelle Obama speaks to Hispanic caucus
Michelle Obama told a Hispanic caucus to the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday that they should not have to live in fear of raids by immigration agents.

Being Hispanic is not against the law... is she talking to illegal alien delegates?

Obama told delegates that her husband, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, wants to reform immigration policies and provide 11 million illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

How does amnesty for illegal aliens benefit Hispanics? Depressing wages?

I hope he gets boo'd

The RNC Meets to Draft Their Platform: Sparks Fly on the Issue of Illegal Immigration
All eyes may be on Denver this week, but the Republican National Committee began their meetings to draft an election platform today ahead of next week’s convention. Sparks flew when delegates got into debate over illegal immigration, which reflected where John McCain originally stood on the issue, but has now taken a more conservative stance.

Two delegates wanted to harden the language surrounding the issue of amnesty. The draft read, “We oppose amnesty.” But, delegates from North Carolina and Colorado wanted to include opposition to “comprehensive immigration reform” because they believe it is a code word for amnesty. This sparked a heated discussion between members with a delegate from Washington DC who said that the Republican Party is a “not a xenophobic party, not an intolerant party. We are a compassionate party that follows the rule of law and endorses federal law,” said Bud McFarlane.

This is what happens to Republicans when they let democrats define us. The spineless among us start to use the dems lingo ("intolerant") and use it when they don't have a logical argument.

Imagine: "We are a party who follows the rule of law but think that we should reward lawbreakers... no wait, you're just intolerant.

The land of make believe

Breaking news: I had sex with Larry Sinclair and Barrack Obama. (Daniel wonders to himself if he should put a "this is false" disclaimer so that Sinclair doesn't sue me with his suspended attorney)

We also used concaine together. Larry Sinclair snorted it off of my thigh.

Back to reality...

For some bizzare reason Sinclair seems to think I'm someone named "Gumby" and is now obsessed with me. Sorry Larry, I don't know you, don't care about you one way or the other and other than your obsession with me, (which I find facinating) I think you need to find a hobby.

These are "frequently asked"? *explicit

Multnomah County has some strange folks in it but I do question the need for a government sponsored website that thinks the following questions are "frequently asked":

As gay/bi/trans men, we have the right to good physical, sexual health, relationships, and to have fun.

This "right" is found next to that one about abortion and never ever having to hear about God outside of a church.

If you have any of the following questions, this may be the site for you:

What are the risks of sucking a guy off or being sucked?

I use meth on the weekends, what should I know about it?

I am looking to have fun with other guys who do guys, where can I go?

Note to Lars: just because one government agency (Multnomah County) wants to use "hip lingo" here to describe certain sex acts doesn't another government agency (the FCC) will let you read on the air what the previous government agency puts on the internent.

Back to the frequently asked questions. (because I know I was very curious about where I could "have fun" with other guys on the weekend while using meth)

To fist or not to fist?
Fisting means receiving a hand or fist up the butt and into the rectum. For those fisting, we recommend using latex gloves. If you are being fisted, we recommend you use loads of lubrication.

I’m HIV negative. How safe is it to have sex with a POZ guy?
Deep kissing, watching porn or erotica, mutual masturbation, and massage are all safe sex.

That's what they recommend. Go watch porn with someone who has AIDS. Sorry, someone who is "POZ." (that's the hip way to say it)

Cock Rings and Cleaning Toys
If you use a cock ring, it should feel comfortable and not too tight.

To clean your sex toys, use a bleach-containing solution of one part bleach to nine parts water for a 1:10 solution. This should be fine for the toys and keep you safe and healthy. Usually toys come with cleaning directions, you can follow those too!

To be fair here, the "cleaning of the sex toys" solutions was probably just copied from the Oregon Department of Educations recommendation to schoolchildren on how to clean their dirty meth needles.

I'm thinking that before Multnomah County asks for more taxes they might consider cutting whoever has the job of doing the FAQ about fisting.

Random Sunday musings

I just came from Back to School shopping at the Woodburn Walmart... I've never ever wished harder for a drink and a uniformed border patrol agent. (and I wish for those things quite frequently)

Which do you think encourages criminals to endanger civilian lives more:

Telling them that if they go X miles an hour on crowded streets the police will break off the chase.


Telling them that if they go X miles an hour on crowded streets that when the police catch them they will be maced and beaten with billy clubs.

I'm still waiting for the day when police can stop giving Miranda warnings but are required to tell people: you have the right to own firearms. You have the right to purchase firearms from a private seller. Any firearms you own do not need to be registered with the government.

Brett Favre is a crybaby.

Groups forms to give Paris Hilton publicity

Group finds voice for gay law students on campus
A group of law students focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender legal issues will offer law students the first ever diversity-based moot court competition on campus this year, along with a host of other services.

"Really the purpose (of Outlaws) is to encourage diversity understanding within the school population and encourage awareness," Farrell said.

When Outlaws recently asked the ASUO for money to attend the conference and organize the moot court competition, the groups' proposal said the events were needed to compensate for a lack of gay-friendly programs at the law school.

"The UO School of Law currently has little programming that includes diversity-based Moot Court competitions, and the students have been dissatisfied with diversity programming at the law school in general because they feel underrepresented," the proposal stated.

It's like my old joke about "BlueOregon hates black people. It must be true because I keep saying it." People who choose to have homosexual behavior are so overrepresented in our society today it's sickening.

A Google search of for the word "gay" brings up 4,230 hits. They have an concern committee, a resource center, an alliance social hour and on and on and on. But if they keep whining that no one loves them then they seem to get more attention.

Imagine walking into a government owned polling place (school) on primary election day (last night in Washington) and finding a display promoting one candidate. (Obama)

It happened last night and Orbusmax has the story and photos!

Judge fines colonists for Boston Tea Party

Day labor center protestor convicted, fined $500
A man charged with blocking the entrance to Portland's new day labor center in a one-man protest was convicted Monday of disorderly conduct.

Tom Wenning wanted his day in court to make a point that the city of Portland is subsidizing illegal activity with its day labor center.

The hiring site, located at the corner of Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Northeast Everett Street, opened in June thanks to a $200,000 grant from the city.

Libspeak translation: "Grant from the city" = "your tax dollars"

The judge said that this protestor "didn't know" that the potential hires were illegal aliens or not. With no respect due to "his honor"... EVERYONE KNOWS THEY ARE ILLEGAL. But hey, why ask me? I asked them! (this was in Cornelious)
