Some criminals are more equal than others

Spanish to English translation was provided. Now allow me to provide Obama to English translation.

Obama: We have redesigned our enforcement practices...

English: We pick and choose which laws to enforce so I don't deport future democrat voters.

Obama: We can make decisions to emphasize enforcement on those who have engaged in criminal activity.

English: We pick and choose which laws to enforce so I don't deport future democrat voters.

Obama: We want to focus our resources on those folks who are destructive to the community.

English: We pick and choose which laws to enforce so I don't deport future democrat voters.

They will manage our lives for us so we don't have to

State greenhouse gas goals could increase driving costs
Oregon is about to enter a new chapter in its environmental history with the adoption of state rules requiring an overall reduction in motor vehicle emissions.

The rules could result in higher fuel taxes, fees based on how miles vehicles are driven, road tolls to reduce congestion, and increased downtown parking charges.

...the rules could require Metro and local governments to take steps to reduce emissions from cars, small trucks and sport utility vehicles. The memo lays out a series of potential actions — called scenarios — in a number of transportation-related fields. They include travel demand management, land use planning, public transit and pricing.

I love that phrase, travel demand management. It sounds so innocent. A search for the term on .or.us and oregon.gov websites reveal that our government masters just want to "assist individuals in choosing alternative travel modes." They will just "encourage" us to change our behavior.

Please do not resist their assistance, it is for your own good. We need our lives to be managed by those who know better.

Bring CEO's to answer to this government official

Representative Peter Buckley (D - Ashland) calls unemployment insurance "poverty level wages." He also insists that no one is milking unemployment insurance payments.

He is just shocked, shocked, that you can't "buy clothes for your kids" if you don't have a job. I would like to take a quick moment to point out that there are lots of things that you can't buy if you don't have a job. Liberals are constantly amazed that not having an income means you can't purchase goods and services. It's just so unfair that anyone should have to work for things.

But that scariest part is that this man has actual power to make laws and is insisting that CEO's should give their salaries in "public service."

Most voters think that they are supporting reading, writing and arithmetic when they support the government schools but instead they go to race-based advocacy meetings.

Job funtion: to enact socialized medicine

Job Title: Program Analyst 2 - (Newborn Screening Follow-Up Coordinator)
Salary: $3,727.00 - $5,442.00 Monthly

This position works on behalf the Oregon Health Authority. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is a new state agency created by House Bill 2009 during the 2009 regular legislative session. The OHA will transform the state's system to make quality health care accessible and affordable for every Oregonian. The ultimate aim of the OHA is to ensure access to health care while making changes that will stem rising costs, improve quality and promote good health. Ultimately, OHA is charged with delivering a plan to the Legislature to ensure that all Oregonians have access to affordable health care.


The Oregon Department of Human Services/Oregon Health Authority is committed to affirmative action, equal employment opportunity and workplace diversity.

Affirmative action and equal opportunity are not compatible. Which is it? Do you affirmatively hire women and minorities or are you committed to equal opportunity?

Liberals have succeeded in creating a new state agency, the OHA, who have jobs that are taxpayer funded and whose sole purpose is to socialize medicine in Oregon.

Damned if I do, damned if I don't

At the start of each trimester my children have literature sent home from school with the class syllabus and inevitably there are some fees to be sent in.

I always pay these "lab fees." This time however there is a box to check "I am unable to pay the lab fee" rather than the usual "please send me a private note if you are unable to pay the lab fee."

It's just right out there, the "I'm not going to pay" option.

I was briefly torn about this. I can afford to pay for my children and believe that it's my responsibility to do so. On the other hand I know that other parents simply choose to save their $20 and check the "I'm not paying box." Am I supposed to believe that some illegal alien family is going to give up some of their ill-gotten money voluntarily?

I also know that if the school would fire their "homeless liaison" or stop giving "free" lunches to illegal alien students then they money would already exist to cover the lab expenditures. This is just another way for them to suck out money from taxpayers.

In the end I wrote a check for $20. My feeling of personal responsibility hasn't been overtaken by my disgust with government... at least not this school year.

Quick, give him in-state tuition subsidies!

Bend Cocaine Trafficking Suspect Jailed
A suspected cocaine trafficker and illegal immigrant was arrested in a raid on his northeast Bend home Wednesday night that turned up about $1,500 worth of cocaine and other items, police said Thursday.

Jose Coca-Argueta, 27, was arrested when Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team detectives executed a search warrant around 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of NE Thurston Avenue, said Lt. Ken Mannix.

A jail officer confirmed he was being held for federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

It's never hard to find these stories, they happen every day. A traffic stop where this illegal alien can't provide a drivers license would get him out of our community sooner. But some politicians think that we should provide them with this "get out of jail free" ID so that they can continue on their crime spree.

Escaped-Americans for Equality

In the name of fairness and equality it's time for us to support the Escaped-Americans Safe Driver's License and In-state Tuition Equity bill. (soon to have bi-partisan support)

This bill would make it easier for Undocumented Inmates who, trying to make better lives for themselves, find that they are in a situation where they left prison without permission.

These Americans who just happen to be escaped convicts will need a drivers license to travel safely on our roads, get to their place of employment and possibly to avoid capture.

Without a quality education these Undocumented-Inmates will not be able to get jobs to win the future. It's time for Oregon taxpayers to subsidize these individual regardless of their "escaped from prison" status.

Please join me in urging the legislature to quickly pass this bill. Remind everyone that if they don't support these ideas it must because they are full of hate.

2012: Let's figure out the losers

Gingrich launches Spanish-language web site
Gingrich lays out in Spanish general ideas about national security, less government, jobs, health, education and the environment.

His broad immigration policy statements indicate that government must maintain its promise of protecting our borders and developing a new and effective temporary workers program.

The text adds that the United States is a country of immigrants that has drawn its energy from its people, but that it is also a nation of laws and must have a legal process of immigration and must not support illegal immigration.

It concludes that any new visa workers system created to integrate illegal immigrants must use the latest technology to make violating that system impossible.

Speaking as someone with a Hispanic Republican voter in the household, we aren't looking for Spanish websites advocating "technology" enhanced amnesty. Get out of the way Gingrich, we are looking for a real conservative in 2012.

This makes complete sense

By free you mean...

Yoga for Black People - Free
When Thu, March 3, 4:30pm – 5:30pm

[Carla D. Danley RN, RYT] brings the gift of Yoga as an offering to Portland's Black community to assist in the healing of mind, body and spirit, and as a tool for empowerment and moksha (liberation). If you self-identify as being of African descent and you have an interest in yoga, this class is for you!

This is from the Office of Multicultural Health and Services calendar. Please remember that whenever the government tells you that something is "free" it means "free to you, someone else is paying for it."

Don't forget to bring your "preferred racial status" card to get in the door!
