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.

Random photo (taken by me) from my "blog pics" folder:

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.

Al Gore shoveled my sidewalk

We have a bit of snow...

But I'm trying to make the best of it...

Hope that everyone is safe, warm and dry.

(Tip for you illegal aliens from south of the border: it's probably warmer down there. I'm just saying.)

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.

Caption contest

Washington Post story
President-elect Barack Obama's immensely talented chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau... dancing with a life-sized cardboard cut-out of secretary of state-designate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and another [picture] where he's placed his hand on the cardboard former first lady's chest while a friend is offering her lips a beer...

I feel bad for sexually frustrated liberals.

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.
