Go Rick Perry!

Texas executes Mexican after court stay rejected
Texas executed a Mexican citizen Thursday for the rape-slaying of a teenager after he and the White House pleaded in vain for a Supreme Court stay, saying he was denied help from his home country that could have helped him avoid the death penalty.

"One more thing," he said as the drugs began taking effect. Then he shouted twice, "Viva Mexico!"

After his execution, relatives of Leal who had gathered in Guadalupe, Mexico, burned a T-shirt with an image of the American flag in protest. Leal's uncle Alberto Leal criticized the U.S. justice system and the Mexican government and said, "There is a God who makes us all pay."

Uncle Alberto talks about God making someone pay but he's not referring to his nephew who raped and murdered a girl, he's talking about the justice system that held his nephew accountable.

So the rapist/murderer shouts "viva Mexico," the Mexicans burn the American flag and the whole time Obama was worried that we would offend our great neighbors to the south.

Damn, Miglavs. You've won me over. I mean, if that dude is like that, it goes without saying (and that's the beauty of it; you don't have to say it) that they're all like that guy. All those dirty Mexican motherfuc ... whoops. I didn't mean that. What I meant to say was: all those scummy Latinos wetbacks ... whoaaaa!!! Got a little carried away there ... blame it on the passion of the newly-converted. Hahahah.

I mean: "Illegal aliens."


Can I be in the club?

P.S. Does this mean I need to start spending money I'd otherwise be putting into my kids' college fund on stuff like guns and ammo? I don't wanna be half-assed about this!

His mistake was committing the crime in Texas. If he had done this in Portland he would have been found innocent and given welfare and freedom to commit more crimes.

YES, YES, YES,YES, YES,YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES...The eyes of Texas are sparkling today. It's about time someone stood up to this incompetent president, who seems to have more concern with color than "cahones". Let him take his bleeding heart somewhere other than Texas. There is some hope...the Supreme Court has a "pair". This is the exact reason why it is so important to have Obumma GONE !!!!. He can't have any more chances to stack this court with his America-hating buddies. This bastard yelled "Viva Mexico" as he struggled for his last breath.....I say "Viva Rick Perry"

So I guess the "rule of law" worshippers in Miglvia don't care much for the 1963 Vienna Convention, to which the United States is a party. As always, love and respect for "rule of law" in Miglavia is highly selective. Some laws are more equal than other laws. Right Miglavs?

I just heard on the radio that this guy had been in the US since he was 2 years old. He was parked here illegally for 36 years and then deserves to consult the Mexican consulate like a true Mexican national when he rapes and kills a 16 year old girl? I don't think so!

Would there have been a difference in the outcome of the case had the slime bag been given the right to talk to the Mexican Consulate? NO!

I think he had ample opportunity to be a mexican. If he was a mexican, he should have called them immediately. The problem was he had been here so long. Hell, wasn't he given the amnesty in 86? He's been here since the mid seventies.

I'm glad he figured out his nationality. One more murder we could have been prevented if Ted the Lion of the Senate had kept his work in 86. Then again, Ted lied and little girls die.

I read recently that one of the "hesitations" in enforcing our immigration laws and deporting these people is because the United States is worried about creating a "international incident" with Mexico and 2, of coarse the money that is brought in from Mexico from trades.

In short... the lack of enforcement is that our country has sold out for the almighty dollar.

I am just really surprised that Obama isn't screaming holy hell and trying to get the Justice Department to have a stay of execution.

Hmmm, UNemployment goes back up breaking records never before seen and Pres. Hussein Obama says OK to letting Mexican trucks/drivers to now steal away those jobs from here also!?

Record UNemployment/Jobs stolen and little girls Tortured/Raped/Killed by those that should not be here.

Why don't you Democrats/Obama supporters CARE about children and jobs for Americans?

Robin said...

and to add to Anon 10:02 point, the mexican truck drivers are not under the same Hours of Service (HOS) that we are.

Scottiebill said...

Robin, I beg to differ on your statement that Mexican truck drivers are not subject to the hours of service rules that the U.S. drivers are. While it is true that while they are in Mexico they are not. But once they cross into the U.S., they are subject to all the rules in the BMCS (Bureau of Motor Carrier Safety)rules, Part 394 of the Dept. of Transportation Act, just as are all the Canadian drivers who are in our country daily.

To mention just one of the rules of BMCS Part 394, the first one actually, is the ability to speak, read, and write the English language. To add to that they are required to keep all maintenance records on their vehicles, trucks and trailers in their places of business and have them ready for inspection by the DOT field officers. That includes keeping and maintaining drivers logs for a minimum of two years. And bi-annual physical exams are required for all drivers.

While the Mexican trucks and their drivers are in the U.S. they are subject to random safety inspections at any or all of the weigh stations they will come across. And judging by some of the Mexican trucks I have seen when in southern Texas, not many will pass even a cursory once-over, much less a thorough inspection.

Part 394 can be seen on the DOT web site. It covers all, repeat ALL, drivers operating in the U.S., regardless whether they are American, Canadian, or Mexican, or whatever nationality.

I know a bit of what I am posting here. I am a retired truck driver with 45 years and just under 4,000,000 miles with but two chargeable accidents. I also worked for time as a safety supervisor for a large oil field trucking company operating in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Alberta.

Robin said...

Scottiebill-- I stand corrected regarding the HOS. the BMCS (Bureau of Motor Carrier Safety) now known as the FMCSA states that "... trucks will be required to comply with all federal motor vehicle safety standards and have monitoring systems to track hours of service compliance and Mexican drivers must also undergo an assessment of their ability to understand the English language and US traffic signs."

The new rules covered under FMCSA 365.501-365.511 subpart E. (special rules for certain Mexico-domiciled carriers).

I feel pretty certain that with the NAFTA agreement between the US and Mexico that it will be under a magnifying glass for compliance during the pilot.

While I was in error regarding the hours of service, I do try to keep up on the rules and regulations including CSA 2010 (although it gives me a headache) and I admit I'm still a newbie because I've only been driving for 3 1/2 years, half of that time in the oilfields of North Dakota. (Which I'm thinking about returning to, but I hate the winters)

By the way... biannual physical exams have been changed to every two years unless you fail at the medical exam or have diabetes in which case you will be required for re-examination on an annual basis. A temporary medical card might be issued if you have high blood pressure or some other non-qualifying condition.

Anonymous said...

Robin, When I mentioned bi-annual physical exams, I was referring to every two years. The exam happening every two years has been in effect for a good many years, at least for 30. Before that they were required every three years. The problem with those exams is that most of them are cursory at best. There was a Yellowstone County doctor back in the late 60s who would not do anything toward giving an exam except for a blood pressure check and signing the required forms, after collecting a $5.00 fee for "services rendered."

My last exam, done by a clinic on Swan Island, was quite thorough. A rarity for the most part.

And I know what you mean when you commented on the winters in North Dakota. They can be a bit of a challenge. BTW, Robin, When I first broke out in the oil fields in 1959 I helped move the first drilling rig into the field about 25 miles west of Grassy Butte. It hit a good producing well at about 9500 feet that started that field. The drilling companies offset those wells and went to about 15,000 feet and hit a whole new field. This was in the 70s. Now I understand that there are rigs drilling to 20,000 feet and a bit beyond that are hitting even more good producers. This all in the area west of Grassy Butte. North Dakota and eastern Montana have come a long way since the discovery well was hit south of Tioga back in 1952.

that funny, I was in Belfield not far from Grassy Butte.

Anon 10:02, why do people like you insist on falsely saying that we suffer from "record" unemployment"?

Are you really bad at math, ignorant, or are you just willfully lying, hoping that nobody calls you on it?

The unemployment rate currently stands at 9.2%...lower than it was at ANY point in 2010. And if you go back further, in 1982 the unemployment rate was 10.8%...a rate higher than the 10.1% high of this recession that we saw in October 2009.

Go back even further, and in the 1930's the unemployment rate reached nearly 25%. THAT was record unemployment.

So no, we don't have "record unemployment" right now. The unemployment rate was higher in both the depression of the 1930's, and the recession of 1982.

But I know how it is with people like you: pull phony "facts" out of your rear, and see how many you can get away with before someone smarter comes along and calls "BS" on you.

Moreover, I would point out that the unemployment rate for people who have sought to improve their lives through obtaining a college education, is less than 5%...a rate most economists consider "full employment". This presents us with a decidely un-PC fact, and one which I would think TRUE conservatives would actually appreciate: The vast majority of people who are unemployed right now, are unemployed because they have not bothered to take the necessary steps that would make them employable.

There are actually 1.5 million job openings in America right now. Thus, the problem isn't a lack of jobs per se, but rather a lack of qualified people to fill those many job openings that exist. How is that Obama's fault?

A true conservative (not that I think there are many true conservatives these days) would say that the unemployment rate is a result of people not "picking themselves up by the bootstraps", and taking advantage of the tremendous amount of opportunity that still exists in America these days. I think they say "America guarantees equality of opportunity, not equality of outcomes."

But the partisan-hack conservatives (which these days is most of them) want to blame if Obama alone is personally responsible for any person's individual economic well-being. Sorry...I didn't buy it when liberals tried to blame Bush for anything and everything bad with the economy, and I don't buy it now when conservatives try to blame Obama for anything and everything bad with the economy. That's just partisan hacks, being partisan hacks.

Off topic, but just something I've been wanting to say:

Daniel, I would have a lot more respect for you as a blogger if you actually responded to people in your own blog posts. I mean, that's sort of what legit blogging is all about. It's a "discussion", which implies that the person making the initial post is actually going to engage in the discussion that he or she starts.

As it is, you appear to do little more than provide "drive-by" postings, where you sometimes post inflammatory rhetoric and then disappear when called out on any of it. (And yes, there are often posters here who have very legititmate counter-arguments to your posts.)

It's your blog of course, and you can do with it what you want. But honestly, and with complete sincerity, you should know that it's a cowardly way to run a blog.

I have a blog too (it has nothing to do with politics), and I always engage my readers by responding to their comments. It's simply the proper way to run a good blog.

Again, you have every right to post and then disappear. But you do so at the great expense of your own credibility. If that's a concern for you, of course. Logic would tell me that "credibility" should be a concern when you're holding yourself out to be a principled activist.

But then, I will admit that I sometimes make the mistake of assuming that people who should care about their own credibility...actually do.

Even though I disagree with much of what you post, I would love to be able to take you seriously. But until you can demonstrate that you even take yourself seriously by sticking around after lobbing your stink bombs, make it more than a little difficult.

For someone who's convinced that he's "right", a person could be forgiven for thinking that your lack of engagement uncomfortably exposes your own doubt about that.

Anon 1:27 here...

Actually Daniel, on second thought...never mind.

After doing a Google search for "Daniel Miglavs", I now understand how come you aren't even the least bit concerned about your credibility: It's already irrevocably shot.

Seriously, I hope you have secure employment. Because with your Google results, most potential employers that don't have "McDonald's" in their name wouldn't touch you with a ten-foot pole. You're what's known as "damaged goods".

Bad Karma: You have it. Big time.

Anon 1:27, this blog isn't about Miglavs having a "discussion" with anyone. Of course, we know full well that if all he was interested in doing was "musing" online, he could disable the "comment" function. And if he was interested in having a discussion, he would engage people. Not just a snide comment here and there, but actually talk to them. But he doesn't do that, either.

What that says to me is: This blog is about pumping up Miglavs ego. The higher the comment count, the better. He's actually on record somewhere in this swamp as loving the fact that "so many of you" hate him. He wants attention. He gets off on it. And the people who really do hate him are actually doing him a favor, because every post makes him feel more important than he actually is.

You know what Miglavs' worst nightmare probably is? It isn't being overrun by Latinos (er, I meant, "illegal aliens.") The worst-case scenario for Miglavs is that he logs on day after day after day, and nobody has commented on his blog.

You want to stick it to the Miglavian in chief? Ignore his dumb ass.

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Anon 2:42.

No, I don't want to "stick it to him". And frankly, I'm not sure I even could "stick it to him" more than he's already "stuck it to himself".

If what you say about his ego is correct (and I wouldn't be surprised if it is), then he must be horrified when he Googles himself. I mean, anyone who didn't know him (say, a potential employer maybe) who Googled him would be a bit shocked at what they find. And not in a good way, either.

And interestingly enough, I found a few posts of his over on Blue Oregon, where he employed the same "drive by" posting tactic that he applies here. Post, and then run away as fast as possible, never again to be seen in that thread.

Nah, this isn't about me wanting to "stick it to him". I'm just trying to legitmately find out why he acts like a coward when it comes to his Internet posting habits. I honestly don't know of any other bloggers who post, and then don't respond to comments on their own blog.

You may have answered that question for me. It could be that this blog isn't something he really cares that much for anyway; that it's just something with which he can stroke his damaged ego.

But I DO believe that he takes his anti-illegal alien "work" seriously, and within the context of his "hit and run" posting on this blog and others, it's all somewhat quixotic and amusing. Like saying, "I am a very serious person!", followed by dressing up in a clown outfit and making balloon animals.

Pssst, Daniel. The joke REALLY is on you, Bubba ;)

Miglavs jumped the shark years ago, first time he posted video of himself at a day labor site, tormenting Latinos with that pinched nasal whine of his, sounding like a seventh-grader trying to sound like one of those cool high school sophomores. He embarrasses a lot of Republicans. The only one who takes him seriously probably are his kids. Wait 'till they grow up. :-)

While Tens of Millions of Americans are needlessly suffering, a reminder today from the Nat'l Council of the Race (La Raza) of why WE are suffering.

A HUGE expense WE should not be paying for in regards to Medicaid for "Immigrants" who are obviously a BURDEN too OUR economy, not a help...

(e-mail alert from NCLR 07/12/2011)
The program is even more critical for the Latino community. One in four Latinos have coverage through Medicaid, including one in two Latino children.

Yeah that's what they say...25% of the 50 Million Latinos or over 12.5 MILLION here or getting "Free" Health Care via us actual taxpayers!!!!

Democrats, how is that "good for the economy"?

I think we're losing sight of the bigger question here: Is ten bucks the best Miglavs can do for the ducks in how many years he's been online?
