Tomorrow is Freedom

It also happens to be May Day, a day long associated with communism, Marxism, socialism, anarchism, basically anti-American.

Tomorrow's events, which will be heavily covered by our very own "highly objective" mainstream media, are a strategic move not for the masses involved, but for the organizers of the pro-invasion. An alliance of communists and reconquistas, whose sole objective is to undermine and shake the very foundation of the United States of America.

They intend to deliver a blow to the nation using the very means vital to our survival, and a means they so despise: Free enterprise

But that is where they will fail. Free enterprise has advantages over state-run business, such advantages are called flexibility, resilience, and the freedom to hire and also fire people who don't show up!

Nevertheless, according to tradition, President Bush has declared tomorrow a day of Law and Loyalty.

Not good enough.

Perhaps the greatest power of voice the American has is through his checkbook.

May Day By Criminal Invaders, (backed by communist?)

30 04 2006

Cross posted from Right Truth

May 1st has been claimed by the criminal invaders in America as 'nothing gringo day'. Is it an accident that May 1 was selected and that May 1 has been claimed by socialists, communists, and anarchists? Fox News Channel wonders and so do many bloggers. Exactly what groups are backing these marchers?

International Workers' Day (a name used interchangably with May Day) is the commemoration of the Haymarket Riot of 1886 in Chicago, Illinois, and a celebration of the social and economic achievements of the international labor movement. The 1 May date is used because in 1884 the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions, inspired by labor's 1872 success in Canada, demanded an eight-hour workday in the United States to come in effect as of May 1, 1886. This resulted in a general strike and the riot in Chicago of 1886, but eventually also in the official sanction of the eight-hour workday. The May Day Riots of 1894 and May Day Riots of 1919 occurred subsequently.

Due to these left-wing overtones, May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist, and anarchist groups. In some circles, bonfires are lit in commemoration of the Haymarket Riot usually right as the first day of May begins. [citation needed] In the 20th century, May Day received the official endorsement of the Soviet Union; celebrations in communist countries during the Cold War era often consisted of large military parades and shows of common people in support of the government. Wikipedia

Most Americans are not worried about May 1 because we see it as a great chance for many things:

1. Jobs vacated by these criminal invaders can be filled by Americans.

2. The streets will be clear of many criminal invaders who do not have licenses or insurance.

3. Our stores and businesses will be less crowded.

4. Hopefully our hospitals and doctor offices will be less crowded and able to serve legal citizens who have insurance.

5. We don't care if lettuce costs a few cents more, or we have to bus our own tables, or mow or own yards. Most of us do that anyway. Most Americans do all their own yard work, house work, plus their full-time jobs, so this won't be a change for us. I believe the market will work out any lack of criminal invader labor force we no longer have.

These people are not immigrants, they were not invited here, they are not here legally and this is what bothers Americans. Many people wait years, fill out stacks of paperwork, pay all the required fees, take all the medical exams that are required for legal immigration. These criminal invaders have done none of this.

So fine, stay home, or march in our streets. Hopefully ICE will be there to arrest and deport you. Yee-haw!

Racist fringe darkens debate

30 04 2006

Cross posted form DeMediacratic Nation 

We can assume that if not already, groups like CAII will be lumped in with losers like this.

The attacks, none physical, have darkened the backdrop for boycotts and
protests planned Monday across the country against a proposed new restrictive
immigration law.

I realize this type of thing "darkens the backdrop" but isn't the whole argument bizarre enough to invite this garbage? People assume they can march, close businesses down and demand rights for those that are not citizens and then think there will be no backlash. I don't get it.

Extreme actions have reactions, even the ugly ones.

From the San Francisco Chronicle

Displays of anti-immigrant and anti-Latino anger in California and across
the country have increased in the six weeks since massive immigrant rights
rallies began, and they’re injecting a new note of vitriol into the nation’s
immigration reform debate.

This ire — in radio commentaries, a computer game, Web sites and other
venues — gained visibility last week when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger publicized
“disturbing and hateful death threats” received by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio
Villaraigosa, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante and other Latino officials. The attacks,
none physical, have darkened the backdrop for boycotts and protests planned
Monday across the country against a proposed new restrictive immigration law.
The angry messages don’t sit well with many mainstream immigration
restrictionists, including leaders of the Minuteman Project, whose members will
depart from Los Angeles on Wednesday on a cross-country lobbying tour for
tougher border control. And the elected officials on the receiving end
downplayed the anonymous messages, saying they get death threats from time to
time on a range of issues.

But immigrant advocates say taken all together, the hostility is an
ominous intrusion as Congress grapples with the steady flow of illegal
immigrants that has amounted to an estimated population of 12 million
nationwide.

“It is a definite sharpening of the debate and making it much more ugly
than we’ve seen in some time,” said John Trasviña, interim president of the
Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund. “It does become a dangerous
situation … . I’m glad the governor raised people’s sensitivities about this.”

Bustamante received a pair of typed postcards early this month
postmarked in Pasadena that called him a “dirty Mexican” and other slurs and
said “The only good Mexican is a dead Mexican,” according to his press secretary
Stephen Green, who faxed one of the cards to The Chronicle.

“That’s a death threat, as far as we’re concerned,” Green said. This
and other threats against Bustamante have been turned over to the California
Highway Patrol for investigation.
“They seem to think he’s a Mexican,” Green
said. “Both he and his parents were born in the San Joaquin Valley.”

State Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez and Villaraigosa were targets of an
anti-Latino attack by a New York radio program. But Nuñez, D-Los Angeles, said
last week: “We don’t feel any threats by anyone. I just think it’s just people
who have a misguided view of the world.”

In Phoenix, a radio talk show host on KFYI lost his job this month for
suggesting on air that listeners “pick one night — every week — where we will
kill whoever crosses the border.” Brian James later told the Arizona Republic
that his remarks had been taken out of context. “I do not in any way advocate
shooting illegal immigrants,” James said.

Boycott may lack bite organizers intended

30 04 2006

Cross posted from DeMediacratic Nation

Organizers of the boycott say they didn't have the economic resources to get the word out to everyone they want to take part in the protest.

No economic resources? Gee, maybe we should all donate to the cause. Although they shouldn't need the resources with all the press this has gotten. Perhaps what they are pushing for isn't all that popular.

From the Houston Chronicle:

Forget about getting a super burrito, flauta or fajita at any of Houston's Taquerias Arandas restaurants on Monday.

And if you've been hankering for a new pair of work boots from the Botas Cebu store on Harwin, you'll have to wait.
It'll be closed, too.

In Houston and around the country, immigrants and their supporters on Monday plan to stage a national work stoppage and spending boycott aimed at showing off their economic muscle. Their aim is to get Congress to legalize more than 11 million undocumented immigrants and back off proposals to tighten immigration laws.

But Monday's "Day Without an Immigrant" is unlikely to bring the economy to a grinding halt as it did in the 2004 satirical film A Day Without A Mexican, even some immigrant advocates concede.

"There won't be chaos," predicted Alain Cisneros, a community organizer for ACORN, a group that works with low-income families, including immigrants. "We will see the impact on the economy, maybe not that strong, but we will see the impact of companies closing and workers not working."

Organizers of the boycott say they didn't have the economic resources to get the word out to everyone they want to take part in the protest. And some immigrants are afraid to participate, still rattled over the raids earlier this month that netted 1,187 illegal immigrants in Texas and 25 other states. But organizers say that if even scattered pockets of immigrants hold back their labor and cash, if only for a day, they will boost awareness of their demands.

Defining Deviancy Down

30 04 2006

Des Moines Register | Basu: Staying away on workers’ day :

International Workers Day isn’t much of an event in America, even though it was in this country that the labor movement’s call for an 8-hour work day spurred the first observance on May 1, 1886. But it’s about to become a very big event again tomorrow.

Across America, and in Iowa, immigrant workers will use the occasion to make a symbolic statement about their value to the U.S. economy.

They’ll do that by not showing up.

Why is May 1 not much of an event in America? Well, for that you can thank your local communist, socialist, anarchist, and other sundry Liberal moonbat types for co-opting it. In reality the Liberals celebrate this day for taking by force what they couldn’t win at the ballot box, or through the courts. I quote what may be the most unbiased and authoritative voice on the subject :

Through much of the 1870’s and 1880’s Chicago was a leading center of labor activism and radical thought. Early in 1886 labor unions were beginning a movement for an eight-hour day. Union activists called a one day general strike in Chicago. On May 1 many Chicago workers struck for shorter hours. An active group of radicals and anarchists became involved in the campaign. Two days later a shooting and one death occurred during a riot at the McCormick Reaper plant when police tangled with the strikers.

Gee… radicals and anarchists. Who knew the Des Moines Register had such an affinity for Liberals?

The workers are hoping their absence will demonstrate more effectively than a rally or petition can just how essential they are, and why they shouldn’t be taken for granted.

This so called Day Without Immigrants comes at a critical time for the 11 million to 12 million immigrants (mostly Mexican) here without legal papers, as Congress considers making them felons.

And why should they not? After all, Mexico considers illegal aliens to be felons.

This is unprecedented, though movies and plays have satirized similar scenarios. The stakes are high. Some immigrant leaders fear the action could backfire, be seen as anti-American or ungrateful. Some correctly question the value of keeping kids home from school. But as one boycott coordinator said, “We’ve shown our power politically, but if we can’t show it economically, we are going to lose it.”

What power? You are not citizens of this country. Believe it or not, we got along just fine before you showed up, and we will be fine long after you have left.

Whether it’s the housekeeper who cleans your toilet or hotel room, the nanny who raises your kids, the assembly-line worker or field hand who handles your food, our society runs on labor by immigrants, some of them undocumented. They’re repopulating empty cities and reviving small businesses.

And sucking up resources, and sending capital out of the USA to the tune of $20 billion per year.

Whatever else the boycott disrupts, the greatest risk is to participants themselves. But they’re focusing on a greater cause. They’re forfeiting badly needed pay and risking being fired, the kinds of sacrifices that have been an essential part of hard-won workers’ rights.

Hard-won CITIZENS rights. Do try to get the minor details right, will ya Basu?

As Juan Jose Gutierrez, national coordinator for Latino Movement USA, told the Washington Post, “You can only march for so long to make your point. You have to think of other creative ways to make it clear to Congress and the Bush administration that we expect them to behave responsibly.”

Of course, to a Liberal “behave responsibly” is code for “let us break the law and get away with it”.

Of course, the effort has to collide with the vitriol of Iowa’s misguided monarch, Congressman Steve King — admirer of Joe McCarthy, apologist for torture at Abu Ghraib, advocate of English-only, opponent of judicial independence and architect of a bizarre plan to fence off Mexico. Suggesting that open-borders advocates are a greater threat than Osama bin Laden, he’s written a piece saying without illegal immigrants, we’d lose only drug smugglers, murderers, child abusers and flooded hospital emergency rooms filled with anchor babies, imported diseases and hangnails. Hangnails?

Ah, yes… The specter of “hate speech” rears its ugly head. Don’t debate anyone on the basis of fact, just go after the messenger.

Rep. King is correct, and I have said many of the same things about the influx of illegals – how are we benefiting from this invasion? We are not getting the next Bill Gates, or Jonas Salk, or Norman Borlaug. What are we getting out of this deal? We are getting a whole lot of criminals, we know that as fact already. Are all of them criminals? Of course not. But we do know in the future we are going to be getting a whole lot of Mexico’s drug addicts due to Mexico legalizing possession of drugs we hold to be illegal.

One only wishes King would borrow a page from the immigrants and observe a day without dishonest political bombast. But until he comes up with a better way to stop the out-migration of Iowans, our economy will continue to depend on immigrant labor. For example, the Cargill Meat Solutions pork-processing plant in Ottumwa will be closed tomorrow, since half of its 2,400 employees are Latino.

One only wishes Basu were capable of writing one column based on fact and logic instead of emotion. We don’t “depend” on immigrant labor. Who was doing these jobs before immigrant labor arrived on the scene? Americans. They were working for much higher wages, too. All you can prove by the addition of illegal immigrant labor is the lowering of our standard of living by artificially depressing wages.

Wait a minute… I thought Liberals were all about helping the poor and downtrodden? Doesn’t that mean they also must be against illegal immigration and the subsequent lowering of wages? Nope, that would mean they have devoted thought to their position, and we know that isn’t going to happen any time soon.

Whatever the reservations about it, the Day Without Immigrants can be effective only if enough people take part in it. It should be supported by everyone who values immigrants’ contributions and believes they should be treated fairly. After all, it is International Workers Day, one more thing immigrants are helping to revive.

If we use this day to support illegal aliens, then I demand a day to honor and support the officers of Enron. I want a holiday to honor bank robbers. I want a holiday to honor rapists. After all, we can’t discriminate, now can we?

We Don’t Have What It Takes Any More

29 04 2006

Cross posted from The Violence Worker

I’d like to say that the pro immigration invader rallies on Monday will strengthen the stance of all Americans against illegal immigration. I’d like to tell you that by Friday, a majority of Congresscritters will see the light and start drafting comprehensive, common sense legislation that will help secure our borders and deal with the millions already here. I’d like to tell you that we, as a nation, and as American people, stood strong against the illegal immigration winds that blew like a category 5 hurricane on Monday. I’d like to report to you on Tuesday that our national levees against lawlessness and intimidation held.

Most people understand the issue. There are a lot of opinions on how to deal with those who are already here, but this fact remains clear, people want our borders secured. The problem is that the left (somewhat successfully) manages to make the argument into one of race or ethnicity rather than the real issues of securing our borders and dealing with the astronomical drain of money and resources illegal aliens invaders put on our education, healthcare and law enforcement resources.

And that’s the problem. That’s why I won’t be able to tell you those things next week.

We Americans are weak. We don’t have what it takes any more to do the hard and dirty jobs and I’m not talking about picking apples. I’m talking about doing something about a problem. We are so damned afraid of offending someone or so damned afraid we might be perceived as racist that we just don’t take a stand or we equivocate until we crap our drawers. The people who will be marching on Monday understand that about us. Whatever steel backbone we once had is so weakened by the corrosiveness of the appeasement movement that I fear for our country.

Look at the groups supporting this march of madness – The Unions, the Socialists, the Communists, the Separatists (Those professing some plan to break away from the US) and now the radical Muslims. These are people who are anti-American and overtly working to change the United States into a third world Socialist Crapocracy©

They’ll slow things down in places, snarl a bit of traffic and make somebody’s life a little more miserable, but it won’t shut anything vital down. Face it. They know they can’t afford to shut things down for more than a few hours.

They also know that if they keep it up, they’ll be able to scare enough of the twits in Congress away from passing any meaningful legislation.

Contact your Representatives and Senators after the rally and tell them you intend to vote for candidates who promise to secure our borders.

What does it Take, to Come here Legally?

29 04 2006

Cross posted from The Uncooperative Blogger

An Uncooperative Reader, Jim, sent me this via email. He graciously gave me permission to share it.

How many really know what it takes to get into this
country legally?

First and foremost, we need to forget about the
politics and the spin that the media (from either
side) put on the issue of the so-called
illegal-immigrants. The politically correct term of
“illegal-immigrant” is an oxy-moronic term. They are
NOT immigrants, as this term is used to defined those
that have followed the laws of our nation and are
immigrating (legally).

We don’t need NEW laws. We only need to enforce the
laws that are already on the books… and by current
law, these people are breaking FEDERAL laws, which
classifies them as Illegal ALIENS and likely felons.

Therefore, if they are breaking the law, then they
should be pursued, captured and dealt with in
accordance with the law.

No, I’m not one of those right-wing extremists, as I’m
sure some will jump up and scream! I’m an ordinary
American who is married to a LEGAL immigrant. I make
less than $27K/year, so I am by no means, making a lot
of money. We spent months and months (over 9 months)
filing the paperwork, PAYING the FEES, and all the
other requirements that were neccesitated by the
government in order for her to come here. And three
years later, we’re still having to file forms, pay
more fees and justify our reasons for her to be able
to stay here.

To give amnesty to these Illegals in any fashion or
form is a slap in the face to those that obey the
laws!

If our government provides these LAW-BREAKERS with any
sort of amnesty, then they should give me back all
that money that I paid them in fees and expenses that
we’ve had to pay for her to come here legally.

My wife and I can NOT use any government assistance
programs! If she needs medical care, she can not go to
a free clinic. If she does, I have to pay back the
government for those costs. She can not apply for
welfare, or any other public assistance, including
unemployment benefits.

Before she was allowed to IMMIGRATE, she had to
provide police reports showing that she had no
criminal background. She had to get a COMPLETE
physical to insure that she had no diseases,
communicable or otherwise, as it might be a cost to
the US government or a drain on the medical
facilities. This includes such things as cancer, heart
disease, etc., not to mention STDs, HIV, or any other
communicable diseases. Of course, we had to pay for
all these requirements before she could get a visa to
enter (yes, that cost us money, too).

If these ILLEGALS are allowed all of this for FREE!
THEN, I WANT MY MONEY BACK! AND I want access to all
the free medical care and other entitlements that
these ILLEGALS get by NOT following the LAW!

These are the views of a native born Texan and most of
all, an American. My wife is Canadian. Had she been an
illegal from the south, we’d probably have a much
better life. However, we’ll live ours the old
fashioned way… the American way!

Law and Loyalty

29 04 2006

Cross posted from A Lady's Ruminations

Is he serious? Everything President Bush says about illegal immigration is in opposition to these two proclamations (cursty to Kathryn Lopez at The Corner for the first).

Law Day, U.S.A., 2006:

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

America's legal system is central to protecting the constitutional principles on which our Nation was founded. As we observe Law Day, we celebrate our heritage of freedom, justice, and equality under the law.

This year's Law Day theme, "Liberty Under Law: Separate Branches, Balanced Powers," honors the wisdom of the separation of powers that the Framers of our Constitution established for the Federal Government. Delegates to the Constitutional Convention recognized the risks that accompany the concentration of power and devised a system in which the Federal Government's authorities are divided among three independent branches. James Madison highlighted the importance of our Constitution's separation of powers when he wrote, "the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny."

Throughout our Nation's history, we have been reminded repeatedly of the wisdom of the Framers' design. Our system of separation of powers has safeguarded our liberties and helped ensure that we remain a government of laws. Law Day is an occasion for us to celebrate our Constitution and to honor those in the judiciary and legal profession who work to uphold and serve its principles.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, in accordance with Public Law 87-20, as amended, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2006, as Law Day, U.S.A. I call upon all the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also call upon Government officials to display the flag of the United States in support of this national observance.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.

GEORGE W. BUSH

(emphasis added) Here's a question: why don't we expect everyone to follow the law? Apparently 12 million plus ILLEGAL ALIENS, whose first act was to break the laws of our country, are not expected to follow the law.

Nor is Congress expected to follow the law; the members can just create new laws when they don't like the old. That sounds remarkably like a MONARCHY to me. In the old days, the Kings and Queens would make laws whenever they wanted to and of whatever they wanted to. Ever heard of "Divine Right"?

Congress isn't royalty and everyone, everyone must follow the law . . . even illegal invaders.

And now, the second proclamation that raises my eyebrows:

Loyalty Day, 2006:

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

Our Nation is blessed and bound together by a creed of freedom and equality that is entrusted to all Americans. Preserving the ideals of our founding requires the service and sacrifice of every generation, and on Loyalty Day, we celebrate the gift of liberty and remember our own obligation to this great Nation.

The dedication and selflessness of America's soldiers and their families inspire us all. Some of our Nation's finest men and women have given their lives in freedom's cause. By their sacrifices they have given us a legacy of liberty and brought honor to the uniform, our flag, and our country. The American people are grateful to the brave men and women of our military for their service and we will always stand behind them. I encourage all Americans to learn more about opportunities to thank and support our troops, from sending a care package to writing a message, by visiting www.americasupportsyou.mil.

Loyalty Day is also a time for us to reflect on our responsibilities to our country as we work to show the world the meaning and promise of liberty. The right to vote is one of our most cherished rights and voting is one of our most fundamental duties. By making a commitment to be good citizens, flying the American flag, or taking the time to learn about our Nation's history, we show our gratitude for the blessings of freedom.

The greatest strength of America is in the heart and soul of its people, and every time a volunteer reaches out to a neighbor in need, our Nation grows stronger and more hopeful. Thousands of Americans are serving a higher calling by mentoring, coaching, serving in Senior Corps, and by participating in many other programs that enrich lives and help build a better tomorrow. The light of freedom shines brightly because of compassionate people who care about others. Their dedication to a cause greater than self gives all Americans confidence in the future of our Nation.

The Congress, by Public Law 85-529, as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as "Loyalty Day." I ask all Americans to join me in this day of celebration and in reaffirming our allegiance to our Nation.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2006, as Loyalty Day. I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, and to display the flag of the United States on Loyalty Day.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.

GEORGE W. BUSH

Notice the date for "Loyalty Day"??? May 1!!! The day a bunch of illegal alien-non-citizens are planning to show their disloyalty to the United States and loyalty to Mexico by marching. Do you think they knew?

Of course, "Preserving the ideals of our founding requires" following the laws of our country. By giving amnesty to millions and millions of criminals (yes, they broke the law by crossing illegally—that would make them criminals), Congress, with President Bush's stupendous support, would be spitting in the faces of John Hancock, George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, etc.

Our "own obligation to this great Nation" is to ensure that moral and just laws are instituted and enforced. This is especially the duty of the President of these United States and the Elected Representatives of these United States. It seems, however, that they are abdicating that duty. So, our obligation to this great Nation is to remove from office anyone who does not fulfill his duty. And, apparently, to enforce the laws by guarding the borders ourselves.

Pretty sad.

Subject: Re: Your Concerns

Dear Friend:

Thank you for contacting me regarding comprehensive immigration reform. It is an honor to serve you as the Majority Leader of the United States Senate and a privilege to respond to your concerns.

Today there are 10 to 12 million undocumented aliens living in the United States, and many Americans believe that our immigration policies are in need of serious review. As a nation of immigrants who honor the rule of law, I believe we must make it a priority to secure our borders as a part of any effort to reform our immigration policies. [NO! Our border control policies are in need of SERIOUS review. As a nation of LEGAL immigrants who honor the rule of law, we need to enforce the existing laws. Piling more laws on top of unenforced existing laws will accomplish nothing. We need a law making it a felony for legislators to interfere with the lawfull duties of border control agents while they are executing the duties of their assigned jobs, arresting and deporting illegal aliens.]

In order to address this issue I have introduced S. 2454, the Securing America’s Border Act, a billion-dollar down payment that focuses on border security and interior law enforcement and will enable the Senate to pursue comprehensive immigration reform. [...and conceals many amnesty provisions and giveaways for illegal aliens. For instance the provision giving them IN-STATE college tuition rates while any US citizens for a different state must pay a much higher rate! There are more...] My proposal will add resources to border protection, give our immigration-enforcement officials new legal tools, invest in physical barriers and electronic surveillance equipment at the borders and make it easier for employers to ensure that they hire only citizens and legal residents. We need to make these investments because maintaining a secure border ranks among the most fundamental missions of any sovereign nation [but giving it away as a freebie to criminal alien border jumpers and allowing them to come in such numbers that it constitutes an enemy invasion can only be construed as criminal malfeasance on your part!]
While our country needs security at our borders in order to slow the flow [try... STOP THE FLOW, jackass!] of illegal immigration and enhance our national security, we still need to do more. A majority of the people who enter America illegally, after all, come here to work. [...and the guy who just drove off after filling up his car... he's not a BAD man, he just needed a tank full of gas. After all, he DID come there to fillup his car! How about the creep who stole your identity? He is not a BAD man, he just needs some quick cash to buy a few nice things for himself and his family that he can not afford. AND you have so much.... You apologists for criminals make me sick. It points out that you are in the WRONG position of responsibility and MUST be removed at the earliest possible moment. You are of a criminal mind yourself if you can not see what is wrong with your thinking! You need some serious psychiatric evaluation and assistance.]

Among other things, the full Senate will need to address ways we can balance security interests with our economy's labor needs. In the long term, our government needs to work on policies that encourage democracy and prosperity abroad which will also address our immigration crisis by reducing the number of people who feel that coming to the United States is their only option. [We do NOT balance our security against your need to prostitue yourself to the illegal aliens. This is not a labor issue, it is an issue of elected legislators ignoring the wishes of the people who elected them. These legislators are now intent on bestowing citizens rights to criminals against the will of the voting citizen population.]

Let me be clear, I do not support amnesty, [BULL SHIT!!! LIEING BASTARD!] but I do understand the labor challenges facing our nation, and, as Majority Leader, I will continue to work with my colleagues to address this critical problem in the 109th Congress. On the basis of sound immigration policy, we can protect our borders, and continue to welcome legal immigrants, and in doing both we will improve the lives of all Americans. [We already have a sound immigration policy. We need better control of the borders and to eliminate the drag on our economy caused by millions of welfare eligible illegal aliens who at this time are collecting millions in food stamps, using millions in health care at hospitals and emergency rooms, costing us millions in law enforcement costs. Labor challenges... those are caused by you and your buddies who pander to the illegal aliens, trying to give away our jobs to cheap labor. YOU are the one responsible for driving down the wage base of the American Citizen Worker. You mix platitudes together, thinking that you have bamboozled another voter. This is really an issue of Patriotic CITIZENS defending our way of life, our government, our sovereignty, our flag, against traitors who by outright lies have inveigled the populace into voting you to a position of power. The time is approaching when you should be removed from that position.]

Sincerely,

William H. Frist, M.D.
Majority Leader
United States Senate

Take an Illegal Alien’s Job Day

29 04 2006

Cross posted from The Uncooperative Blogger 

Someone sent me this idea in an email.

Regarding the upcoming “Day Without Mexicans” I suggest that Americans who want jobs should take advantage of it by showing up at companies that employ illegals and see if they need workers on Monday. Maybe this day will start us on the solution to two problems at once: putting more Americans to work and encouraging illegal aliens to return to their native countries because there is no work for them here.

An excellent idea wouldn’t you say?

Third Party Does the Charm …. ?

29 04 2006

Cross posted from Red Hot Cuppa Politics

During the past couple of months, I've thought privately that this country was ripe for the rise of a third party … and son of a gun — Rasmussen just came out with the fascinating poll:

April 27, 2006–Democrats currently hold a 12-point advantage over Republicans on a generic 2008 Presidential ballot. However, a third-party candidate focusing on immigration enforcement issues could fundamentally alter those political dynamics.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national opinion survey finds that 44% of Americans say they would vote for a Democrat if the Presidential Election were held today. Just 32% would vote for a Republican. Those figures are likely a reflection of unhappiness with the Bush Administration rather than a commentary on prospective candidates from either party …

The survey also asked respondents how they would vote if "a third party candidate ran in 2008 and promised to build a barrier along the Mexican border and make enforcement of immigration law his top priority."

With that option, support fell sharply for both major parties. The Democrats still come out on top with support from 31% of Americans. The third party candidate moved into a virtual tie at 30% while the GOP fell to 21%.

Hm. That indicates that a third party could win. If you look at the figures — Dems would lose a whopping 13 percent to a third party candidate, while Repubs would lose 11 percent. Which makes me think that alot of folks would consider voting Dem, just because they're fed up with Republicans. And, Rasmussen's wrong about the numbers reflecting fed-upedness with the Bush Administration — folks are also plenty fed up with Congress, particularly the Senate.

Here's how the rest of the November elections are shaking down so far, according to Rasmussen (remember, not all the states are done with their primaries):

Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum (R) retains his title as the nation's most vulnerable incumbent for Election 2006. The latest Rasmussen Reports election poll in the Keystone State shows Santorum trailing Democrat Bob Casey by 13 percentage points, 51% to 38%.

Nebraska: If former Ameritrade executive Pete Ricketts becomes the GOP candidate for Senate on May 9, he will have a hill to climb in the general election—but would be better off than other Republican aspirants. Ricketts leads in the GOP Primary.

Maryland: Democratic Congressman Ben Cardin is maintaining a substantial lead over Lt. Governor Michael Steele in the race to succeed retiring Democratic Senator Paul Sarbanes …

Ohio Governor: Strickland (D) Lead Grows
Ohio Senate: DeWine 43% Brown 41%
Illinois Governor: Topinka (R) by 6
Maryland Governor: O'Malley (D) by 9
Florida Governor: Crist (R) Leads
Texas Governor: Perry (R) Lead Grows
Virginia Senate: Allen (R) Retains Big Lead
New Jersey Senate: Kean (R) 43% Menendez (D) 36%
California Governor: Schwarzenegger (R) Takes the Lead
Montana Senate: Burns (R) Bouncing Back?
Alabama Governor: Riley (R) 47% Baxley 40%
Arkansas Governor: Beebe (D) by 11
Kansas Governor: Sebelius (D) Reaches 50%
Florida Senate: Nelson (D) by 30
Massachusetts Governor: Dems Lead by 7
Washington Senate: Cantwell (D) Lead in Single Digits
Missouri Senate: McCaskill (D) 42% Talent (R) 41%

Some races look close, but does anyone see more than two Republicans leading in their Senate races listed up there? The Texas race isn't mentioned; but I think Senator Hutchison will be okay; she's a tad diplomatic, but she can generally be counted on to do the right thing.

Back in 1994, the Republicans took over Congress with their "Contract With America." They were full of ideas and ethics back then, and America responded warmly. I'm not seeing or hearing anything new from the Democratic party this year — but our fearless Republican leaders have pretty much forgotten about that Contract with America, and they've been methodically shooting themselves in the foot. A lot of conservative voters can no longer stand them, or Bush.

But, at the risk of going off on a liberal-style flight of fancy, we need to think a minute about what happens if Dems take Congress in the fall: First, Republicans, to be sure, get chastised, and just might get their act together for 2008. That'd be nice, and it'd be justice, alot of them haven't earned re-election; they've gotten fat and as pork-crazed as the Democrats.

However, Dems get conrol of the economy for at least two years, we still don't drill in ANWR or offshore, tax cuts get repealed, there's no hope of cutting spending on domestic policies that don't work … political correctness gets in vogue again … and, ohyah, there's still no border control. Libs get voted into the Supreme Court if there's a vacancy. And, yes — in the past, domestically, our country has managed to rock along and survive the follies of both parties. In terms of domestic issues, maybe Republicans should get "taught a lesson," we've managed to survive Democrat control of Congress before.

And, Cindy Sheehan's smirk gets bigger, and she claims she speaks for the American people. (That's you and me.) She and her buds in Code Pink will point to a Democrat elected Congress as proof, and folks overseas will believe it. Think about that one for a moment, then contemplate the international gig if Democrats win.

To me, the biggest implications in my view are international, because I think the mullahs and Al Quada are likely to weigh in. Here's what happens internationally if Democrats win in both the house and the Senate:

First, we pull out of Iraq. There will be no Congressional support for our efforts there. I remember this happening during Vietnam, and I don't think we can afford a replay of Nam. We pull the rug out from under our allies in Iraq, who are painfully managing to achieve a decent government of their own. There's progress being made, tho not reported, and they still need our back-up. So, Dems win, we pull out, there's a civil war in Iraq and no matter who wins, they all hate the USA. Al Quada declares victory, and feels free to attack our interests overseas and at home. And, remember — the Dems pretty much have to get us to pull out of Iraq, to please their wealthy anti-war billionaire funders.

Second, Bush gets impeached — whether there's rational, documentable grounds or not, probably along the lines of "lying" about Iraq, and "outting" Val Plame. One of the deepest pockets of the Democrat donors (Soros) has pledged his fortune to getting Bush out of office. And, if Dems have a majority, they'll hang together and make it happen, regardless of evidence to the contrary. Because that's what they do.

So, if Bush gets impeached, we get Cheney — so what's the big deal? Well, if you've perused the DailyKos, Cheney's all intertwined with Bush in terms of their perceived evidence for presidential "lies." If Bush goes, Cheney goes.

Here's the implications of impeachment: Al Quada declares victory, and gets emboldened. Our enemies point to the USA as an easy target, overseas and at home. Dems respond to blackmail. And, the mullahs ride their nuclear ambitions to the fabled caliphate, or the Muslim End-times — or maybe to New York City — or LA — or Chicago — or Houston … (and no, I don't think they have the capacity to launch missiles, but they host terrorists, and can certainly slip a couple of nukes wherever they want to)

In 2008, if Hillary wins and has a Democrat Congress handed to her — Al Quada and maybe the mullahs test us again, to prove something to the rest of the world. I honestly think that there are two reasons we have not been attacked again. Bush reacted strongly to 9/11 — two countries went down in two years. Also, we're keeping Al Quada's best and brightest busy in Iraq — where armed Coalition forces troopers with body armor are killing them. The deterrance stops cold if we get a Dem controlled Congress in 2006, capped with Hillary in 2008, beholden to funds from wealthy leftist anti-war billionaire kingmakers.

And, remember, with a Dem Congress, we still don't get border control, although there'll be plenty of "feel-good" rhetoric.

Look — Lord knows, the Republicans, particularly in the Senate, richly deserve to get punished this fall. Vote your heart — as Americans, we're supposed to do that. All I'm saying is think first.

I also think that by 2008, there just might be a viable third party — but there's not time to build support for this fall's Congressional elections. I do think that electing a third party candidate to the Presidency in 2008 is enough to strike terror into the most pork plated heart in Congress.

Now, Tom Tancredo says he's not interested. But, you know, Chris Simcox is a handsome devil; you have to admit, he'd look great with the Presidential seal behind him. And, I'd bet dollars to donuts, the mullahs would think twice about crossing him …

If you feel (as I do) that US Democrats are unthinkable, perhaps one strategy would be to "hold your nose" and vote Republican for now … and work to build a possible "MinuteMan" (?) party for 2008, and beyond? You have to admit — it's got a ring to it.

Hm. Any thoughts out there?

Border News Roundup

29 04 2006

Cross posted from Real Texas Cowgirl 

Well, all kinds of things are coming to the forefront of the border war.

As if Mexico didn't have enough problems, the Federales have now passed a law allowing previously illegal drugs to now be legal in small amounts.  Are they aiming to get American tourism back, after decades of jailing tourists and holding them for ransom when caught with small amounts of marijuana? 

May 1st will be here in two days, and Illegal Aliens and their supporters in the U.S. are proposing to bring the U.S. economy to halt.  Good luck with that.  Everyone I know is going shopping Monday, and I, in particular, am wearing my Minuteman polo shirt.  I will not, however, be purchasing anything from companies supporting or in any way condoning this demonstration.

The President of the United States, heretofore suffering from an acute case of "Border Blindness", unexpectedly declared that the Star Spangled Banner should be sung in English, and further that people living in this country should learn to speak English.  Hmmm….

And then, of course, there is the California Senate, admittedly a bastion of the looney left, that proclaimed "… the one-day protest the Great American Boycott 2006 and describes
it as an attempt to educate Americans 'about the tremendous
contribution immigrants make on a daily basis to our society and
economy.'" 
So, I gather that it is okay with the California Senate for illegal aliens to boycott America.  I wish to hell they would.  Why don't they try stealing into Guatamala for a change?

The usual suspects are wrongly portraying this issue as an immigration issue.  Once again, I issue a reminder that this is not an immigration issue, it is an illegal invasion issue.  When illegal aliens are allowed to enter my country illegally and break whatever laws they wish, and then be made heroes in the media, Hollywood, and the press, I cannot help but think what the consequences would be for me, as an American citizen, should I decide to disregard the laws.  Do you suppose the ACLU would come to my defense, demanding that if the laws are disregarded for non-citizens/criminals, they should be disregarded for all?

This news is all so bizarre, I almost feel like I am stuck in a Twilight Zone episode.

For more border news and commentary, recent Coalition posts include and interesting analysis of future Third Party possibilities by Frau Budgie at Red Hot Cuppa Politics.  Also, in case you have ever wondered who are the millionaires in Mexico, and why is the general population so poor, the answer is: "…  the Mexican government is not a government of
and for the people, it is another legitimized crime organization motivated by money flowing into the pockets of politicians."

As the "U.S. prepares for A Day Without an Immigrant,'"  as noted above, I'm preparing for a day of shopping, wearing my Minute Man polo shirt.  Susie accurately points out that the issue is  about law not race.  In what other country in the world, could illegal aliens have the audacity to protest?  It was suggested that in retaliation, American citizens should, "… Boycott Cinco de Mayo! That is the big May 5th celebration Mexico celebrates in which weconsume huge amounts of Mexican food and products. So, on May 5th we will buy NO Mexican products this year. We will celebrate Cinco de Mayo by staying home and ignoring anything Mexican. Heck why don't we extend this idea to boycotting Mexican products all together until this mess is fixed. No Mexican beer, produce, or any other product made in Mexico. Mexico should have stayed out of our politics."  I'm sure that might be a good idea, but man, I couldn't do that for more than a day or two.  I love Tex-Mex food and Negro Modelo.  Doing without Mexican, pesticide-laden produce is something I routinely do anyway.

Mexican Millionaires

28 04 2006

Cross post from Free Constitution

A recent study completed by the Center for Immigration Studies has found some very interesting figures. I'll get to that shortly.

As it turns out, the millions of poor Mexicans living in shoddy socio-economic conditions, a lot of which crossing the U.S.-Mexican border for hope, jobs, money, and a laundry list of other not-so benevolent intentions, happen to have an abundant amount of government officials doing nothing about it.

Why is Mexico's government so recklessly negligent of the public welfare? Because the Mexican government is not a government of and for the people, it is another legitimized crime organization motivated by money flowing into the pockets of politicians.

You can guess what those do-nothing government officials make take or you can have a look at what the Center for Immigration Studies found:

* President Vicente Fox ($236,693) makes more than the leaders of France ($95,658), the U.K. ($211,434), or Canada ($75,582).

* Although they are in session only a few months a year, members of Mexico's Chamber of Deputies make $148,000 — substantially more than their counterparts in France ($78,000), Germany ($105,000), and congressmen throughout Latin America. At the end of the last three-year term, Mexican deputies voted themselves a $28,000 ''leaving-office bonus.''

* Members of the 32 state legislatures earn on average twice the amount earned by U.S. state legislators ($60,632 vs. $28,261). The salaries and bonuses of the lawmakers in Baja California ($158,149), Guerrero ($129,630), and Guanajuato ($111,358) exceed the salaries of legislators in California ($110,880), the District of Columbia ($92,500), Michigan ($79,650), and New York ($79,500).

* Average salaries (plus Christmas stipends known as aguinaldos) place the average compensation of Mexican governors at $125,759, which exceeds by almost $10,000 the mean earnings of their U.S. counterparts ($115,778). On average, governors received aguinaldos of $14,346 in 2005 — a year when 60 percent of Mexicans received no year-end bonuses.

* In 2002 Mexico earmarked only 6.1 percent of its GDP for health care. Mexico trailed Argentina (8.9%), Barbados (6.9%), Brazil (7.9%), Colombia (8.1%), Costa Rica (9.3%), Cuba (7.50 %), El Salvador (8.0%), Haiti (7.6%), and Nicaragua (7.9%).

* Mexico devoted just 5.3 percent of GDP to education in 2002, behind Barbados (7.6%), Cuba (9%), Honduras (7.2%), and Uruguay (8.5%).

And the reconquistas want to give "Aztlan" back to Mexico???
Yeah right, there's something more to it than simply nationalism or anti-Euro racism.

U.S. prepares for ‘A Day Without an Immigrant’

28 04 2006

Cross posted from DeMediacratic Nation

"The great slogan of the American Revolution was 'No Taxation Without Representation. Millions of human beings today and for many years are being taxed, and they have absolutely no representation. In fact, they are being bashed every day and humiliated." – Juan Jose Gutierrez

Leave it to CNN to misstate the event

Meatpacking plants will shut down. Markets won't open. Trucks won't roll. Students will walk out of school. Millions of people will take to America's streets in possibly unprecedented numbers.

"Millions of workers, men and women without documents and their supporters who are, in fact, legal United States citizens will heed the call to not go to work," said Juan Jose Gutierrez, national coordinator of Latino Movement USA and one of the lead organizers of Monday's planned boycott.

"Many hundreds of thousands of students, perhaps millions, will stay away from school and people will not shop and will not sell anything," Gutierrez said.

Boycott organizers are demanding amnesty and the chance for the estimated 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States to earn citizenship. Gutierrez compares their struggle with that of American colonists against British rule more than 200 years ago.

 

Nice multi-cultural mix!

Drive launched to limit services

28 04 2006

Cross posted from DeMediacratic Nation

"What we earn and what is used to fund services ought not be spent on anyone who broke the law to enter this country" – John Andrews, a former Republican Senate president.

From The Denver Post:

Proponents of an initiative to deny state services to undocumented immigrants launched a petition drive Thursday to get the measure on the ballot. Fred Elbel of Defend Colorado Now, which is backing the initiative, said the group has more than 1,000 volunteers to gather 100,000 signatures.

The initiative would prohibit undocumented immigrants from receiving state services and allow citizens to sue institutions they believe are serving undocumented immigrants. But does not affect federally mandated services such as K-12 education and emergency medical care.

Opponents argue undocumented immigrants already are ineligible for services such as food stamps, welfare and housing aid and that nearly 60 percent of them work and pay taxes.

Then what is the big deal if another layer is put in place? Likely the big deal is that the opposing statement isn't quite accurate.
Teresa Ogu's husband, a Nigerian immigrant, became a citizen after seven years of paperwork and thousands of dollars. She feels others should do the same.

"Other people have to respect the process, and we have to know who is here," she said.

Hmmm….that's unique

Once Again This Is Not About Race!!!

Cross posted from My Country-My View

I think those of us that are Hispanic will fight this to the end.
We hear the worst of it because we are Hispanic.
I don't know how many times I have been called a traitor to my race.

Now if I break the law I go to jail. Is this called racism? No! I broke the law it doesn't matter what race that I am. I broke the law and that is all to be said about it.
I must pay my dues.
Do you think I am going to go around telling people:
"Oh they did this to me because I am Hispanic"

That is not how it works; although I belief a lot of that is going around right now.
I can just hear them saying it now.
I also have heard time and time again about the Minutemen being racists.
I can tell you if they were really racist, they wouldn't let Hispanics in PERIOD!

Even if they thought it would benefit them.
Real racists HATE! They don't care what you can do for them!
It is about getting rid of you and that is all.

We are AMERICAN'S, we love and respect our country and we just don't want to see it trampled upon.
I don't care where you come from.

YOU ARE WELCOME, JUST DO IT LEGALLY.   

Minuteman are protecting our borders. Is this so bad?
The fact that 10% are Hispanic should make us stop and take a look.
Instead there is nothing but criticism.

I will say I am so glad that out of all the students that walked out to protest in Houston and Pasadena, my daughter or nieces and nephews were not among them.
Did this cause some trouble for them?
Yes actually it did, but they continue to stand their ground. It also isn't as bad as most people would think. I'm told that lots of the kids did it just to get out of school and there were also many that didn't really know what the walk-out was really about.

I just don't get it anymore.They just followed the crowd. 

Still the important thing that people need to understand is that there are many of us Hispanics that are so against illegal immigration, and we are not sell-outs as some call us.
Just read it with your own eyes, in the link above. These are only a couple besides myself whose opinions are being viewed. There are so many more of us. Once again we are not racists.
I will continue to support the Minutemen.

Another Reason California Is In the Toilet

28 04 2006

Cross posted from Blog Meister

This should come as no surprise:

(AP) SACRAMENTO California's state senators on Thursday endorsed Monday's boycott of schools, jobs and stores by illegal immigrants and their allies as supporters equated the protest with great social movements in American history.

By a 24-13 vote that split along party lines, the California Senate approved a resolution that calls the one-day protest the Great American Boycott 2006 and describes it as an attempt to educate Americans "about the tremendous contribution immigrants make on a daily basis to our society and economy."

The word missing in the above statement is ILLEGAL. But why let pesky details get in the way of sucking up to potential voters?

Illegal aliens and their supporters may think they are indispensable to our economy, but that's not necessarily the case. From the Center for Immigration Studies:

It is often suggested that "matching a willing worker with a willing employer" is all that matters when it comes to immigration policy. The fiscal costs of illegal immigration indicate that focusing only on workers and employers is grossly inadequate. If the presence of large numbers of unskilled workers lowers prices for some goods and services, but at the same time increases the burden on taxpayers, then this may not be a good deal for the country. Put simply, the mere fact that employers want more workers, and foreigners wish to work in this country, does not mean that Americans necessarily benefit from their coming. This fact must be considered when formulating policy.

Again, why let pesky details get in the way? Do they really think they'll close our cities for a day? I doubt it. We'll see who's right on Monday.

May 1st Boycott Back On, Let’s Boycott ‘Cinco de Mayo’

28 04 2006

Cross posted from The Uncooperative Blogger

This one is long, but worth it…

A boycott on May Day has likewise been called in many cities across the country as part of pro-immigrant pro-illegal alien invader demonstrations. Called a paro in Spanish, the term is generally understood to mean both refusing to buy and refusing to work or go to school.

Activists are urging illegal alien invaders across the United States to skip work, avoid spending money and march in the streets to demonstrate their importance to the U.S. economy.

But the plan for a paro is not universally endorsed by all immigrant Illegal Alien invader-rights groups. In Chicago, the organizing coalition known as the Movimiento 10 de Marzo, or the March 10 Movement, decided not to call for a boycott or general strike in the city, largely because of the involvement of labor unions that said they could not legally endorse such an action because their contracts prohibit them.

The question of whether to participate in nationwide calls for a May 1 boycott was hashed out at a contentious April 22 meeting, where the local coalition decided to support calls for boycotts in other cities, but refrain from a boycott in Chicago. But some organizers described this as caving in to unions and politicians that were pushing for a more moderate stance.

“I wish the unions had stayed out of it and let people celebrate May Day the way they wanted,” said Rafael Cervantes, an activist from Monterrey, Mexico who has lived in Chicago for decades. “The boycott was a symbol for people, an icon, a way to say we matter, we are an important cog in this machine, we produce and we consume. It’s ironic that the unions are saying they could not support it because it would be illegal, but the whole reason we’re marching is that people are here ‘illegally.’”

Did Rafael just say that the whole reason we are marching is because people are here illegally? So, that means they should illegally march in our streets? Hmm…

In Los Angeles, where other mass protests are planned, some groups will be carrying out work stoppages and boycotts and attending a daytime downtown march. Others who plan to go to work and school will attend a separate demonstration in the late afternoon.

Thousands of truck drivers working out of the Port of Los Angeles and cab drivers who serve Los Angeles International Airport are expected to strike for the day or possibly the week.

“If truckers aren’t trucking, the port isn’t working,” said Los Angeles attorney and organizer Jim DeMaegt. “If cab drivers don’t drive, LAX will be shut down. Nobody knows precisely what will happen, but there is a lot of support.”

Well, we will know which employers hire illegal alien invaders now won’t we? I say we fine the companies that are affected by this protest. I hope they are put out of business, and as to the Airport and port? If it cannot stand one day of this than I say screw it. I also say we re-think allowing Mexican truck drivers on our roads. They do not get the same level of training as our truck drivers and pose a serious safety threat. Heck, most of them cannot even read our signs!

In Arizona, the coalition that organized a 100,000-strong protest on April 10 in Phoenix waffled about supporting a boycott. Last week, the Somos America (We are America) coalition announced it was supporting demonstrations and other forms of protest, but not endorsing the boycott due to fear of a backlash and concern for immigrants’ illegal alien invaders’ job security.

But, according to the group’s chairman, Roberto Reveles, who spoke to the Arizona Republic, the recent arrests of 1,187 undocumented immigrants in federal raids on pallet maker IFCO Systems locations in 26 states including Arizona, spurred the group to change its mind.
Reveles told the Republic that his group wanted “to make a statement against the latest raids,” which came “at a time when they should be working toward immigration reform rather than instilling additional fear in the lives of undocumented workers and their families.” I say the raids should be going on daily. All this is only making me angrier, they are not winning my heart or mind.

At the March 10 Chicago demonstration, during which more than 100,000 immigrants illegal alien invaders and their supporters hit the streets, a group handed out flyers for a hastily organized boycott of Miller beer. Demonstrators targeted Miller Brewing Co. because the company’s PAC had donated $2,000 to Wisconsin Republican Congressman F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., sponsor of the only decent bill, 4437, that passed the House of Representatives last year.

Merchants on 26th Street, Chicago’s main Mexican commercial drag in the Little Village neighborhood, said that by evening customers were refusing to buy Miller. The message reached beer distributors quickly, and by the following week officials from the company’s Milwaukee headquarters had met with coalition organizers and put out a statement opposing the House’s legislation.

For this reason we, U.S. citizens, should boycott Miller Brewing Company products. I am starting TODAY.

“The only thing we are looking for is to end this dehumanizing situation and get the recognition of the migrant labor force,” Federal Deputy Maria Garcia said. “People who go looking for work should not be treated like criminals with the risk of being tried in federal courts.”

It is called free will, God gave it to you and it is up to you to use it wisely. Illegally sneaking into a country to work illegally opens you up to be used and abused.

Hollywood stars, including Edward James Olmos and Salma Hayek, have joined ranks with a boycott planned for May 1 to protest the proposed tightening of US immigration laws.

Oscar-winning Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla and Colombian actor John Leguizamo also lent their names to the cause.

Hayek, who is Mexican, said she knows herself what it means to “open a path” in the United States, as she told the Mexican press.

Before departing on a European promotional tour, Hayek was considering how she could support the May 1 boycott, a source close to the actress said.

“We have to demand respect and dignity, because we are all workers and because we are already part of the DNA of this country,” Santaolalla, Oscar winner for the score to “Brokeback Mountain,” told AFP.

Leguizamo, who played in “Moulin Rouge” (2001) and “Carlito’s Way” (1993) among other films said that the was “proud of the protests” in which millions of Latinos took to the streets in recent weeks to protest some of the tougher immigration measures being debated in Washington.

“It is insulting that the law would call an immigrant a criminal,” he said. “It’s horrible.”
Big surprise Hollywood doesn’t get it. We call people that come to this country illegal aliens as defined by our laws. I call them illegal alien invaders, what they are not is immigrants.

Teachers’ unions in major cities have said children should not be punished for walking out of class.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District said school principals had been told that they should not try to keep students in class but instead should walk with the children to help keep order.

Our wonderful teacher’s Union at work undermining our country as usual.

In New York, leaders of the May 1 Coalition said a growing number of businesses had pledged to close and allow their workers to attend a rally in Manhattan’s Union Square. But if all the city’s immigrants illegal alien invaders walk off the job, many New Yorkers will go hungry, or at least be forced to eat at home for a change. Which I consider to be a good thing. Anything to inconvenience a NY City dweller is ok by me! They could use a little reality in their lives. I should know I used to live and work in NYC.

Personally, I will not miss any illegal alien invader or their supporters. But I say we all save up for May 1st to do our shopping. Don’t shop this weekend, shop Monday after work or school. Think how nice that shopping day will be for us. We just all turn out and spend our money on Monday to teach them a lesson; we don’t need you.

Mexican lawmakers issued a declaration of support for immigrant illegal alien invaders protests planned in the United States on Monday and said they will send a delegation to Los Angeles to show their solidarity. Also, activists south of border have called for a boycott of all U.S. businesses on Monday in support of the protests.

I think U.S. Businesses should re-think doing business in Mexico, lets see how they like that idea!

Mexicans living in the United States sent back home about $20 billion in remittances last year. That is money REMOVED from our economy, and fed into the Mexican economy. Do you still think they are helping our economy?

Did you know the Mexican consulate helps illegal alien invaders to sue our people, in our courts?

Okay Mexico, you want to play? I say we all Boycott Cinco de Mayo! That is the big May 5th celebration Mexico celebrates in which we consume huge amounts of Mexican food and products. So, on May 5th we will buy NO Mexican products this year. We will celebrate Cinco de Mayo by staying home and ignoring anything Mexican. Heck why don’t we extend this idea to boycotting Mexican products all together until this mess is fixed. No Mexican beer, produce, or any other product made in Mexico. Mexico should have stayed out of our politics.

Now they’re taking the Star-Spangled Banner

28 04 2006

Cross posted from White Wide

No, not the flag. The anthem.

Spanish 'Star-Spangled Banner' Draws Ire

MIAMI – British music producer Adam Kidron says that when he came up with the idea of a Spanish-language version of the U.S. national anthem, he saw it as an ode to the millions of immigrants seeking a better life.

But in the week since Kidron announced the song — which features artists such as Wyclef Jean, hip-hop star Pitbull and Puerto Rican singers Carlos Ponce and Olga Tanon — it has been the target of a fierce backlash.

Some Internet bloggers [see, when the MSM is lazy and needs a source, they turn to us; otherwise, they criticize us] and others are infuriated by the thought of "The Star-Spangled Banner" sung in a language other than English.

"Would the French accept people singing the La Marseillaise in English as a sign of French patriotism? Of course not," said Mark Krikorian, head of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that supports tighter immigration controls.

The initial version of "Nuestro Himno," or "Our Anthem," comes out Friday and uses lyrics based closely on the English-language original, said Kidron, who heads the record label Urban Box Office.

Pro-immigration protests are planned around the country for Monday, and the record label is urging Hispanic radio stations nationwide to play the cut at 7 p.m. EDT Friday in a sign of solidarity.

A remix to be released in June will contain several lines in English that condemn U.S. immigration laws. Among them: "These kids have no parents, cause all of these mean laws … let's not start a war with all these hard workers, they can't help where they were born."

Bryanna Bevens of Hanford, Calif., who writes for the immigration-focused Web magazine Vdare.com, said the remix particularly upset her.

"It's very whiny. If you want to say all those things, by all means, put them on your poster board, but don't put them on the national anthem," she said.

Ditto.

Kidron, a U.S. resident for 16 years, maintains the changes are fitting. After all, he notes, American immigrants borrowed the melody of the "Star Spangled Banner" from an English drinking song.

So, the national anthem is just a drinking song?

James Gardner, an associate director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, said Americans have long enjoyed different interpretations of the Star Spangled Banner, including country or gospel arrangements.

Um, yeah. "Country" and "gospel" are styles, not languages!

“Nuestro Himno” or Illegal Alien Anthem

28 04 2006

Cross Posted from DeMediacratic Nation 

Ok, I think they've really missed the "boat" on this one. If the Mexican flag waving, the demands for amnesty, the marches and all the rest didn't offend and further ostricize this group, this surely will.

"It's the one thing everybody has in common, the aspiration to have a relationship with the United States . . . and also to express gratitude and patriotism to the United States for providing the opportunity." – Adam Kidron, president of Urban Box Office, the New York-based entertainment company that launched the project.

Here's an idea for spreading gratitude and patriotism; don't mess with the anthem and respect its words for what they were and are. To all those that have died defending this nation since the beginning – Thank you, with a bizarre twist.

From the Washington Post

Timed to debut the week Congress returned to debate immigration reform, with the country riven by the issue, "Nuestro Himno" is intended to be an anthem of solidarity for the movement that has drawn hundreds of thousands of people to march peacefully for immigrant rights in Washington and cities across the country.

WOW!!! How does one build solidarity with those they supposedly wish to be one with? Make the demands they have? Say things like Congress needs to do it's job and legalize us?

The people behind "Nuestro Himno" say the message once more is: We're all Americans.

Uh, not really at least not the United States of America part of America, but nice twist, no?

We're not talking Jimi Hendrix here:

Michelle Malkin said

The rendition crosses a line that Hendrix never stepped over with his instrumental version. Transforming the musical idiom of "The Star-Spangled Banner" is one thing, but translating the words sends the opposite message: We are not Americans.

Too bad this wasn't obvious to the fools with the "big idea."

Of course WaPo has to point this out:

Yet, even in English, 61 percent of adults don't know all the words, a recent Harris poll found.

So much of this "legal" illegal immigrant argument is pathetically illogical, what are they thinking?

Immigrants Living in Constant Fear

28 04 2006

Cross posted from bRight & Early 

If there is one small effect from the recent ICE actions and reaction from Americans who oppose illegal immigration, it may be this:

From the Lakeland Ledger (Fl):

HAINES CITY — On a normal day, the small dining room at Mi Ranchito, a bodega, is busy at lunchtime with a crowd of regular customers enjoying spicy chiles rellenos or enchiladas.

Things were different Thursday.

"Not a single person came to have lunch today," said Maria Rodriguez, a store clerk. "This is usually packed, but it is probably the rumors."

The rumors Rodriguez referred to are of immigration officials showing up unexpectedly at bodegas, supermarkets and bakeries, asking employees and customers for documentation and arresting those who don't have proper papers. These rumors are spreading like wildfire across Polk County and Central Florida.

Rodriguez said her store has been inundated with callers asking whether it's true that la Migra (Immigration) has raided her store.

"I tell them no, it is not true," Rodriguez said. "It's sad to hear people with so much fear."

Unspoken is the fact that legal immigrants have no need to be afraid, as Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said.

"We have enforcement operations every day in this country," Gonzalez said. "If you are in this country legally, you have nothing to worry about."

Part of the IFCO arrests published recently took place in the same area.

On April 19, federal agents arrested 38 illegal workers at IFCO Systems pallet recycling plant south of Bartow. It was part of a 26-state sweep that resulted in the arrests of 1,187 illegal IFCO workers and a handful of company managers.

The rumors may dampen the planned let-us-break-the-law rallies.

The frenzy created by the rumors has hit the Hispanic community just days before a national strike planned for Monday.

Juan Mojica, an organizer and coordinator for Inmigrantes Latinos Unidos de la Florida (United Latino Immigrants of Florida) in Lake Wales, a national immigrants rights organization, said the rumors are confusing the public and are deterring people from joining a local rally planned for Monday in Orlando.

"I heard someone calling a radio station, saying Immigration was holding a checkpoint in Haines City," Mojica said. "Later, we found out it was the police conducting a routine traffic enforcement effort."

Mojica said his group is not backing away from Monday's national strike.

"We are telling laborers to go to work instead if they think they may lose their job if they participate. We are encouraging them to send their kids to school," Mojica said. But he said people are being asked not to spend their money that day. "We are asking them to prepare themselves with enough gasoline, food or any goods before Monday."

Some Hispanic small business owners are worried the sweep rumors will continue after Monday and will hammer their livelihood for good.

Nonetheless, most are planning to shut down their businesses Monday anyway.

Juan Alfaro, owner of La Tapatia Grocery in Haines City, said he supports the strike and is considering closing his business that day.

The sweep rumors have affected his store as well, he said.

"Wednesdays are usually not the busiest day of the week," Alfaro said. "But this past Wednesday was the slowest of the year so far."

Let me make it clear one more time. Those who are voicing their vocal opposition are against illegal immigration — not against immigration, not against Mexicans or any other race. But we will continue to speak out against those who flout our laws and ignore our rich heritage of real, legal immigration.

Immigration From USA To Mexico

28 04 2006

Cross posted from Amboy Times

I received this story in my email from a close relative.

The following from a director with SW BELL in Mexico City.

I spent five years working in Mexico.

I worked under a tourist visa for three months and could legally renew it for three more months. After that you were working illegally. I was technically illegal for three weeks waiting on the FM3 approval.

During that six months our Mexican and US Attorneys were working to secure a permanent work visa called a FM3. It was in addition to my US passport that I had to show each time I entered and left the country. Barbara's was the same except hers did not permit her to work.

To apply for the FM3 I needed to submit the following notarized originals (not copies) of my:

1. Birth certificates for Barbara and me.

2. Marriage certificate.

3. High school transcripts and proof of graduation.

4. College transcripts for every college I attended and proof of graduation.

5. Two letters of recommendation from supervisors I had worked for at least one year.

6. A letter from The ST. Louis Chief of Police indicating I had no arrest record in the US and no outstanding warrants and was "a citizen in good standing."

7. Finally; I had to write a letter about myself that clearly stated why there was no Mexican citizen with my skills and why my skills were important to Mexico. We called it our "I am the greatest person on earth" letter. It was fun to write.

All of the above were in English that had to be translated into Spanish and be certified as legal translations and our signatures notarized. It produced a folder about 1.5 inches thick with English on the left side and Spanish on the right.

Once they were completed Barbara and I spent about five hours accompanied by a Mexican attorney touring Mexican government office locations and being photographed and fingerprinted at least three times. At each location (and we remember at least four locations) we were instructed on Mexican tax, labor, housing, and criminal law and that we were required to obey their laws or face the consequences. We could not protest any of the government's actions or we would be committing a felony. We paid out four thousand dollars in fees and bribes to complete the process. When this was done we could legally bring in our household goods that were held by US customs in Laredo Texas. This meant we rented furniture in Mexico while awaiting our goods. There were extensive fees involved here that the company paid.

We could not buy a home and were required to rent at very high rates and under contract and compliance with Mexican law.

We were required to get a Mexican drivers license. This was an amazing process. The company arranged for the licensing agency to come to our headquarters location with their photography and finger print equipment and the laminating machine. We showed our US license, were photographed and fingerprinted again and issued the license instantly after paying out a six dollar fee. We did not take a written or driving test and never received instructions on the rules of the road. Our only instruction was never give a policeman your license if stopped and asked. We were instructed to hold it against the inside window away from his grasp. If he got his hands on it you would have to pay ransom to get it back.

We then had to pay and file Mexican income tax annually using the number of our FM3 as our ID number. The companies Mexican accountants did this for us and we just signed what they prepared. I was about twenty legal size pages annually.

The FM 3 was good for three years and renewable for two more after paying more fees.

Leaving the country meant turning in the FM# and certifying we were leaving no debts behind and no outstanding legal affairs (warrants, tickets or liens) before our household goods were released to customs.

It was a real adventure and If any of our senators or congressmen went through it once they would have a different attitude toward Mexico.

The Mexican Government uses its vast military and police forces to keep its citizens intimidated and compliant. They never protest at their White House or government offices but do protest daily in front of the United States Embassy. The US embassy looks like a strongly reinforced fortress and during most protests the Mexican Military surround the block with their men standing shoulder to shoulder in full riot gear to protect the Embassy. These protests are never shown on US or Mexican TV. There is a large public park across the street where they do their protesting. Anything can cause a protest such as proposed law changes in California or Texas.

Please feel free to share this with everyone who thinks we are being hard on illegal immigrants.
