Because he can win

What is Oregon's best chance of getting a governor who will do something about illegal aliens? Allen Alley.

This may sound strange coming on the heels of his horribly misguided comments on the new pro-enforcement law in Arizona. Alley is wrong about that.

But he has the right solution for effectively combating identity theft and job theft in Oregon by making the E-Verify program mandatory for all employers.

Once employers are required to verify the legal work eligibility of their employees our illegal alien population will be forced to look elsewhere, probably California, for a place to continue their culture of lawlessness.

John Lim is a candidate that I really like and if I thought that he had a chance to win the Republican primary and the November general then I would vote for him in a heartbeat. But I don't think that he does. It is Alley versus Dudley. And Dudley WILL NOT do anything about illegal aliens in Oregon. He WILL NOT do anything about employers continuing to hire unlawful workers while Oregonians collect unemployment.

If Alley wants to misinterpret the Arizona law but stands with me on the principle of stopping numerous problems that illegal aliens create for Oregon then that's fine with me. You say "tomato" and I say "tomato."

Arizona's solution doesn't have to be our solution. What matters is that we get the result of reducing identity theft. Reducing the job theft. Reducing the drunk driving, the drugs, the rapes and all the other crimes that come along with people who have no respect for the law.

If you truly want to have an effect on the next governor's race your choices are Alley and Dudley. If you truly want to have an effect on the illegal alien population in Oregon then your choice is Alley.

Why Portland needs that extra tax

Program # 40045 - Health Equity Initiative (racial justice focus)
The mission of Multnomah County’s Health Equity Initiative (HEI) is to eliminate the root causes of social injustices leading to racial and ethnic health inequities. The definition of health equity that grounds HEI's mission is the fair/just distribution of resources and power that supports the achievement of full health potential.

Program Total: $311,570 (2010)

Another acronym in Multnomah county whose job it is to redistribute income based on favored minority status. Are these reported health inequities the result of skin color or personal behavior and choices by individuals?

Are Asians going to be receiving a large amount of attention from this program?

Arizona video roundup

Throwing things at police officers really makes our point...

No... you... can't...

A lot of gang signs being thrown at the camera here.

Sorry illegal alien lovers. You lost and will continue to lose. The American people are sick of you being here. Sick of your crime. Sick of you stealing jobs. Sick of having Spanish forced on us. Chant it with me now: No you can't! No you can't!

I clubbed a baby seal to death for earth day

Random Thursday thoughts:

The Blazers are down 62 - 35 right now but they have run a commercial indicating that they are "green" so it's ok...

David Wu tried to rape a girl. But since he apologized and likes abortion it's ok.

My opinions on the gubernatorial candidates:

Sizemore: would be fun to watch him ruin the unions

Ames: probably the most conservative of the bunch but unless you are very involved in Republican politics you don't know who he is

Lim: my favorite of the "big three"

Alley: a politician but he could actually win it

Dudley: not a fan at all

Obama quote perfected:

"some in on Wall Street government forgot that behind every dollar traded or leveraged, taxed there is a family looking to buy a house, pay for an education, open a business or save for retirement."

What OFIR does for you

Some push for county-level law on immigration hiring
Voters in Marion and Polk counties could decide in November whether their county governments should police the hiring of illegal immigrants.

The initiatives would require employers with five or more employees to use E-Verify, which is the free federal service that lets employers verify if someone can legally work in the United States.

The group’s behind the initiatives, Oregonians for Immigration Reform and Americans for Prosperity, started signature gathering at last week’s Salem tea party rally. They said they think voters in the two counties are fed up with the immigration issue and are ready to take matters into their own hands. And since they are just trying to get the initiatives on county ballots, they don’t need to gather that many. Additionally, they said they are tired of pushing for federal and statewide reform - a tactic they said that is not working.

What can you do to help illegal aliens self deport in Oregon? If you live in Marion or Polk county make sure that you sign the initiative petition to get these measures on the ballot. If you live outside these two counties then consider making a donation to Oregonians For Immigration Reform.

But really this measure isn't about illegal immigration. It is about making sure that workers are legal and using their own social security number. This prevents ID theft and job theft.

CAUSA can argue that counties have no role in immigration policy but they certainly have a role in making sure that employers and employees are following labor laws.

I feel bad for the social service agencies

Federal judge scolds Oregon drug kingpin, spares him from life in prison
A Portland judge scolded the kingpin of a Mexican drug gang on Monday for damaging the lives of Americans from coast to coast as he ran methamphetamine superlabs, trafficked in cocaine and orchestrated vast marijuana plantations.

Thankfully the defendent only received a verbal scolding and not a sternly worded letter...

Ortiz-Oliva, whose principal operation was in Salem, presided over one of the biggest drug operations ever uncovered in Oregon. He ran a small, armed empire of distributors with connections to the Nocupetaro drug cartel in Mexico, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen Bickers.

Some of the Ortiz-Oliva gang's meth labs could produce up to 30 pounds at a time, causing a massive supply of the highly addictive drug at a time when Oregon's social service agencies were scarcely prepared for its ravages, Bickers said. The gang moved drugs across the nation.

The most important victims here are Oregon's social service agencies. Can you imagine what they were going through? No, you can't. That's because you have a productive job.

Authorities had to keep going back to judges for permission to tap his new phones, allowing the Mexican citizen to use the U.S. Constitution to stay one step ahead of the law, Bickers told the court.

Judge Brown ruled that Ortiz-Oliva was a career criminal, based on earlier convictions for a Salem shooting that left a man with a wounded hand; possessing meth with the intent to distribute the drug; and beating his girlfriend as she held one of their children in her arms.

He shot someone... had drugs for sale... and beat his girlfriend. I don't want this guy to go to jail, I want him to live in the same neighborhood as my congressman!

They said it

Illegal aliens and their supporters, in a bizarre effort to endear themselves to the American people, have come up with the "we love taxes" slogan.

Other slogans considered were "we love using your SSN to avoid taxes" and "pay taxes to support our anchor babies."

I guess that if you paid zero federal income tax (since they claim to only do low wage jobs) and had various state agencies jumping through hoops to get you welfare then I guess that you would love other people paying taxes as well.

SPECIAL NOTE: perhaps gathering around graffiti covered mailboxes isn't the best photo op.

Tea... it's what's for dinner

There are numerous events that you can consider participating in tomorrow.

Why file when you claim 7 dependents

Audit finds thousands of Oregon tax evaders

An audit by the Oregon secretary of state’s office says thousands of Oregon workers get away without paying state taxes because officials don’t do enough to identify them. The audit released Monday faults the state’s main tax collectors for not matching federal tax data with state tax rolls

Let's list some reasons why someone might not pay their state income taxes:

1. They don't have a social security number.
2. They aren't working legally.
3. They have no respect for our laws.

It amazes me that we talk about how many illegal aliens are working in this state and then when an article like this comes around the intrepid reporters don't think to make the connection.

It's another one of those conundrums where you illegal alien supporters can't give a good answer to the question: Do people who aren't working legally file their income taxes?

If the answer is no then we have the above situation. If the answer is yes then the first follow up question is "why" and the second follow up question is "whose social security number did they steal to do it?"

Does anyone think that illegals feel some civic duty to give more of their ill-gotten gains to the state by filing taxes?

Saying what they really mean

The video speaks for itself. Union elites act no different than any other elites: better than us peons who live to make sure that they are comfortable.

Looking over his shoulder... into a news camera

Carlos had some scumbag parents to put him in this situation. But we are a nation of laws and they need to apply equally regardless of how sympathetic the news can make your story out to be.

If the laws don't apply just because the ethnic hustlers in congress share the same skin color as you then we have become a nation of men.

A legal discussion

There was a lot of talk yesterday (on Lars Larson) about Sgt. Kyle Nice displaying his weapon during a "road rage" incident.

Here is my take: we are a nation of laws. The police have to follow the same laws that we do. We should be treated the same when it comes to violations of the law.

So here is the law:

163.190 Menacing. (1) A person commits the crime of menacing if by word or conduct the person intentionally attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury.

166.190 Pointing firearm at another; courts having jurisdiction over offense. Any person over the age of 12 years who, with or without malice, purposely points or aims any loaded or empty pistol, gun, revolver or other firearm, at or toward any other person within range of the firearm, except in self-defense, shall be fined upon conviction in any sum not less than $10 nor more than $500, or be imprisoned in the county jail not less than 10 days nor more than six months, or both. Justice courts have jurisdiction concurrent with the circuit court of the trial of violations of this section. When any person is charged before a justice court with violation of this section, the court shall, upon motion of the district attorney, at any time before trial, act as a committing magistrate, and if probable cause be established, hold such person to the grand jury.

That's it. Prove intent on the menacing or you have nothing. There is NO LAW regarding brandishing or displaying your firearm. You are free to open carry in this state and you are free to handle your firearm as long as you don't point it at someone or have the intent to cause someone fear of imminent serious physical injury or death.

With that being said, I have no doubt that a non-government employee would have been treated differently in the same situation. Where I differ from the majority of opinions on the radio yesterday is that I'm not arguing for the officer to be punished, I'm arguing that us lowly citizens should be left alone when we don't break the law.

NOTE: I am not an attorney and you should never take legal advice from anyone on the internet. If you are interested in understanding Oregon's laws regarding to firearms please please please read the book UNDERSTANDING OREGON'S GUN LAWS.

And good riddance

Clackamas jail pioneers system to identify illegal immigrants

Federal immigration authorities activated a new information-sharing system this week at the Clackamas County Jail, making it easier for deputies to identify criminal suspects who are in the country illegally.

The system, developed by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, uses fingerprints, photos and biographical information. It will be extended to other Oregon counties in coming months as part of the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Secure Communities initiative.

Since its launch in October 2008, ICE's Secure Communities initiative has identified more than 18,800 aliens nationwide charged with or convicted of Level 1 crimes, such as murder, rape and kidnapping. More than 4,000 of those have been deported.

ICE also has removed more than 25,000 foreign nationals charged with or convicted of Level 2 and 3 crimes, including burglary and property crimes.

I will wait patiently for the outcry from illegal alien apologists who claim that they only want to "keep families together" yet somehow oppose common sense ideas such as weeding out the worst of the worst to make sure that they get deported.

Why don't the groups that push amnesty applaud actions to rid our country of the scumbags who make the rest of the illegal alien population look worse than they already do? They could release a statement saying that "we support the idea of Juan stealing your job and your social security number but the minute he gets a DUI we want him gone!"

While I'm waiting for that statement we can at least rest easier knowing that an illegal alien who gets caught driving drunk will now be deported rather than released to kill American citizens.

Fat people to consider eating

Portland School Board To Consider Support For Measure 68

An Oregon measure aimed at making it easier to pay for new school buildings goes before the Portland school board Monday.

Portland district staff have recommended board members support Ballot Measure 68 at their meeting tonight.

But it’ll be up to voters across Oregon to approve or reject the constitutional amendment, in May. 
The measure would allow the Oregon legislature to issue bonds to match voter-approved school district construction bonds. The state’s involvement would be new.

It's never enough. I would love to have a reporter ask the public school teacher's "what per pupil funding is enough to do the job." We all know the answer: "how much will you give us."

During this election cycle ask your local candidate "how much is needed." Get a real dollar figure. No one will ever give one because then they wouldn't be able to ask for more.

Thursday night ramblings

Couldn't states save money by not funding college educations for women? I mean, does it really take four years of school to learn how to use a dishwasher and make a sandwich?

I've realized that my ammunition habit needs a more stable funding source.

People who want government to take care of them should just go back to living at home with their parents instead of bothering the rest of us.

Why is it that the photo on Causa's website hide everyone's face? Are they afraid of something?

The only thing that sounds more fun than going to a woman's rights convention and making a whole bunch of "that's what she said" jokes would be going to a PETA meeting and clubbing a baby seal to death.

You can sign up for the Oregon Health Plan lottery to get your "universal care" in this state. I'm looking forward to the day when we crowd into coliseums and give a thumbs up or thumbs down to your hip replacement surgery.

The federal government controls how much water is in your toilet.

DHS is currently hiring a Diversity Development Manager. For a salary of $5,151.00 - $7,585.00 monthly we will probably get some humorless lesbian who only smiles at the thought of a teenage abortion.
