You can't have a round square

Dear Governor Perry,

You can't be small government and pro-illegal alien. I couldn't begin to calculate how many PERS recipients we have in Oregon because of illegal immigration.

How many translators, migrant coordinators, migrant health officials, head start teachers babysitters, and on and on.

How much time does government at every level spend worrying about and catering to the criminal aliens who have broken our immigration laws?

How many programs at the state level have been created to accommodate or respond to illegal immigration?

You are not a small government conservative if you believe that we should provide the additional magnet of in-state tuition costs to illegal aliens.

Some animals are more equal than others

Equality Assembly to take place on October 5th in Portland
This event is part of a campaign to speak to local leaders and raise awareness about issues important to the Latino Community illegal alien community.

What: Portland Equality Assembly
When: Wednesday, October 5th from 6-8 p.m.
Where: Rigler School, 5401 NE Prescott St, Portland Oregon

Local elected leaders will be present to hear testimony from community members in support of:

  •  Stopping local law enforcement collaboration with ICE
  •  Passing Tuition Equity, so all Oregon students can afford higher education, regardless of immigration status
  • Supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members of our community
  • Restoring driver’s license access to all Oregonians, regardless of immigration status

So local politicians will hear about a bunch of stuff that affects certain privileged members of our community. (criminal aliens) Or will they? This event is being held at a public school which means anyone can attend. (although I can't guarantee that English translation will be provided)

It may be a good idea for other interested members of the community to show up to offer their own opinions. Or at least document what goes on here. Si se puede.

Because Obama hates loopholes

Bill Blocks Billions in Child Tax Credits to Illegal Immigrants
New legislation sponsored by Rep. Sam Johnson (R.-Tex.) would block illegal immigrants from cashing in on the refundable child tax credit and save the federal government tens of billions of dollars.

The Refundable Child Tax Credit Eligibility Verification Reform Act (HR 1956), would amend the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code to require that taxpayers provide their Social Security number on their tax return in order to claim the refund.

The refunds claimed by illegal immigrants have grown over the years at an alarming rate: $924 million in 2005 to $4.2 billion in 2010.

Not one penny should be taken from corporate jet owners while illegal aliens are using the tax code to bilk us out of billions of dollars. 

If politicians were serious about getting out of the way of job creations they would stop aiding criminal behavior that sends money out of our country to prop up the economy of Mexico.

Those hated lobbyists

Oregon public and private sectors see dramatic rise in congressional lobbying
In the last decade, spending on federal congressional lobbying by Oregon government bodies and businesses has increased five-fold, from $2 million in 2000 to over $10 million in 2010, according to an
analysis of federal lobbyist data by Oregon Capitol News (OCN).

To all those who want to "get money out of politics" and hate the lobbyists and specials interests, the quickest way to stop this is to get rid of crony capitalism. If the government has less power they wouldn't need to be lobbied. 

But when numerous agencies have the power to either shut you down or loan you half a billion dollars it's only prudent that you spend a lot of time buying drinks and rounds of golf for our politicians.

I'll sell you this watch for $20

If I offered to sell you a $17.5K car for $2,600 you would assume that there was theft involved. The same is true when solar companies the government tries to sell you their products. With claims of "up to 85% off" you know that someone is getting robbed. That someone is the taxpayers, both current and future.

One of the things I look forward to most in life is the end of the green fad. That very special time in the future where we will look back and laugh at how gullible some people were.

I can't wait until the DMV takes credit/debit cards so I can find out how much extra they will charge us

Online Licensing
You may purchase your new or renewal dog license online through our secure site.

Note: Our secure site accepts Visa and MasterCard. There is a convenience fee of $2.49 that is charged to you for using the online service. There is no fee for a payment by check or cash made in our office or by mail. Using this online system is voluntary.

I should drive my V8 truck down to the animal shelter and pay by paper check. The entire private sector is pushing "paperless billing" and online payment, not because it is "green" but because it is so much cheaper, easier and efficient to take electronic payments.

But government has decided that since something is more convenient for the consumer there is money to be made. How much does it cost the county to have me hand a check to a PERS recipient, get a paper receipt and then have the same PERS recipient make record of the transaction and then put the check in a pouch so that another PERS recipient can take it to the bank?

I'm guessing that it's slightly more than having a website record a few 1's and 0's to have money direct deposited into their account. But since it's more convenient for me I guess I have to pay extra.

If only there weren't crimes we wouldn't have criminals

Immigration Offenses Make Latinos New Majority in Federal Prisons, Report Says 

For the first time - Latinos make up more than half of all federal felony offenders sentenced so far this year, a major demographic shift swollen by immigration offenses, according to a new government report.

"Statistics like this have to start drawing attention to this country's immigration policies and what we're doing, if this is one of the results," said Fordham University Law School professor Deborah Denno, an expert on racial disparities in the criminal justice system. "The implications for Latinos are huge when you think of the number of families affected by having their breadwinners put away for what in some cases would be considered a non-violent offense."

 I love the crocodile tears of families being "torn apart" when one family member CHOOSES TO BREAK THE LAW. The implications for "Latinos" here is not the issue. The federal government isn't rounding up Latinos. The people who are affected by our criminal justice system are... wait for it... criminals!

 While I don't wish harm on anyone I would find it ironic if professor Deborah Denno has her ID stolen (non violent crime) and her house broken into (non violent crime). We would quickly find out how worried she was about the family of the perpetrator being broken up.

Final back to school special before we have to drive 20 mph again

For ALL Students Regardless of Immigration Status 

If our schools would spend as much time teaching kids to read as they do trying to help illegal aliens our students might have better test scores. I'm just saying...
