Boycott, march, human chain set for May 1

ARCADIA -- Emboldened by the success of a demonstration in Fort Myers on April 10, the Immigrantes Latinos Unidos de la Florida announced Wednesday that a second protest march will be held in Orlando on May 1.

For the Orlando demonstration, ILUF president Luis Ibarra said, 200,000 Hispanics are expected.

Their goal is "good news" from Congress in the form of a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, allowing them to become American citizens.

ABC viewers urge: Fire Diane Sawyer

Network anchor accused of exploiting beaten teen girl in quest for TV ratings

Outraged ABC viewers are calling for the arrest or firing of Diane Sawyer after the anchor broadcast a TV segment that included the beating of a teenage girl by her father – without first going to authorities about what was captured on tape.

During Friday's "Primetime" news magazine show, Sawyer presented a segment about dysfunctional stepfamilies, which featured a profile of a family in Lake Placid, N.Y.

According to a report in the New York Post, state police officials in Lake Placid say they are going over the tape to determine if charges can be brought against the natural father, a Iraq war military reservist, and the teen's stepmother.

By yesterday, over 1,400 messages had been posted on ABC News' website message board, many calling for Sawyer and the show's producers to be fired for failing to take the tape to law enforcement when they first saw it.

"At the very least, the parents should be arrested and Diane Sawyer needs to resign from her post at ABC News," stated one poster. "ABC News' lack of action and complicity were harmful and destructive to a young girl – ALL FOR RATINGS. The therapists did nothing to intervene either and should be arrested. The site keeps taking their names off the board, but they are easy to locate. They should be charged with … child endangerment."

The family, identified as Lynn and Joe Nelson and their daughter, Kyle, gave ABC permission to place the cameras in their home and had the ability to turn them off at any time, the Post reported.

Hispanic Attorney Says Using Term Illegal Alien Racial Slur

The Conservative Voice is reporting...

By Sher Zieve – Appearing on KLIF Radio’s Gregg Knapp show, attorney Domingo Garcia said that using the terms illegal alien or illegal immigrant is a “racial slur”. Garcia said that those who use it, in reference to Hispanics, are racist.

Knapp advised Garcia that using the term “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” is an accurate term applied to [their] legal vs. illegal status in the country and a true depiction of the fact that they are illegal. Garcia said: “Using words like illegal alien is like calling people derogatory names…like calling people nigger!”

Bush Says Deporting All Illegal Immigrants 'Unrealistic'

President Bush said Monday (April 24th) that the idea of kicking out all 11 million illegal immigrants in America isn't feasible, and that a more middle-ground solution needs to be found to deal with the issue. Speaking in California before an audience assembled by the Orange County Business Council, Bush said, "Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic -- it's just not going to work."

Bush, who backs a guest worker program, is trying to walk a tightrope on the emotional issue between conservatives who want a crackdown on illegal immigration and the business community that wants the immigrants for jobs. He told the audience, "One thing we cannot lose sight of is that we're talking about human beings, decent human beings that need to be treated with respect."

We don't have to deport anyone. If the jobs snd benefits dry up they'll pack up and go back home.

More smoke & mirrors!

Bush Has Ordered Probe Into Possible Illegal Manipulation of Gas Prices

Amid growing unhappiness among Americans about the rising price of gas, which now averages about $3 a gallon nationwide, President Bush has ordered an investigation into whether prices have been illegally manipulated, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Monday (April 24th). McClellan said that Bush has asked his Energy and Justice Departments to begin inquiries into possible cheating in the gas markets, and plans to announce the action during a speech today.

Congress has also been feeling pressure about the issue, and House Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee, both Republicans, sent a letter to the president yesterday urging a federal probe into any gas price gouging or market speculation. This came as a new CNN poll found 69 percent of Americans said gas price increases have caused them personal hardship.

McClellan said that Bush's action is part of a four-part plan to address gas prices, both in the short and long term:

*Making sure consumers and taxpayers are being treated fairly.
*Promoting greater fuel efficiency.
*Boosting gas supply at home.
*Having aggressive long-term investment in alternative fuels.

4 sentenced for killing Volusia homeless man

Ode to Michael Roberts

The four teens who admitted beating and stomping a homeless man to death last year were sentenced to between 22 and 35 years in jail today.

Volusia Circuit Judge Joseph G. Will struck a compromise between prosecutor's demands that the teens get life in prison and defense attorneys' requests that they be treated as juveniles. The sentences are:

-- Jeffery Spurgeon, 19, 35 years;

-- Christopher Scamahorn, 15, 35 years;

-- Justin Stearns, 18, 27 years;

-- Warren Messner, 16, 22 years.

All four had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Investigators say the four beat Michael Roberts, 53, with sticks, fists and logs in three separate attacks.

Kennedy’s Gas Solution: Steal From The Rich Give To The Middle Class (VIDEO)

On Meet the Press Sunday, Senator Edward Kennedy (D – MA) did not suggest or imply, but straight-out said that the government should take away oil companies’ profits and hand it out to middle income families. Hmm, redistribution of wealth, what does that sound like? Socialism.

I don’t care what you think about oil executives. Personally, I was not happy when former Exxon CEO & Chairman Lee Raymond was awarded a $400 million retirement package. However, with the record profits he brought in for the company, he deserved it.

MR. RUSSERT: What are we going to do about $3-dollars-a-gallon gasoline?

SEN. KENNEDY: The president, the president should have called the head of the oil companies into the White House and started jawboning. He should have done that a week ago. Why he doesn’t do that, I do not understand. He ought to be pointing out that hard-working Americans, middle-class people, who have their sons and daughters in Iraq and in Afghanistan, that this is not a time for greed. And he ought to activate and call the Federal Trade Commission—which is basically a sleepy organization that has given an interim report in terms of price-fixing and gouging—he ought to get them off and have them working seven days a week, 24/7, to make sure that we know exactly who is price-gouging. And third, we ought to have a bipartisan effort to recapture, recapture these excessive profits that are going to the oil industry and return them to working families and middle-income families.
The new idea in the Democratic Party is to play the “troops card” in any situation because it will win the hearts of people instead of invoking true thought. That is exactly what Kennedy did in this situation. Shame on him.

Not to be outdone Arlen Specter offers the following solution...

GOP Senator Calls for Windfall Profits Tax on Oil Companies To Help Reduce Gas Prices

With the average price of gas nationwide nearing $3 a gallon, Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania yesterday (April 23rd) said the government should consider a tax on oil companies if they make excessive profits amid the rising prices. Specter, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said such a windfall profits tax, along with stronger antitrust laws, could help bring down gas prices.

Appearing on CNN's Late Edition, Specter said, "I believe that we have allowed too many companies to get together to reduce competition. They get together, reduce the supply of oil, and that drives up prices." Specter supports legislation that would strengthen antitrust laws on oil company mergers, after his committee held a hearing last month on the growing consolidation of the oil industry.

Appearing on Late Edition with Specter was Democratic Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, who said he believes that if President Bush told oil companies that he was going to support a windfall profits tax, gas prices, quote, "would come down within a matter of days."

There’s a lot of angst from consumers over high oil prices. They charge the oil companies with “price gouging”, even though Business Week recently reported that the “fear factor” from Mid-East instability has added at least $15 to the cost of a barrel and probably even more.

Exxon gets most of the blame, yet their profit margin of 10.6 percent ranked 116th on the Fortune 500. Microsoft’s profit margin is 3x greater (30.8 percent). The Internet giant Yahoo made 36.1 percent profit, while the cell phone company Qualcomm made 37.8 percent profit.

Why aren’t consumers screaming about Microsoft, Yahoo and Qualcomm then? Why Exxon?

To discuss this issue further and to explain why gas prices are increasing, I brought Dan Gainor, Director of the Free Market Project, on the show today.

Illegal aliens(criminals) set to teach gringos a lesson

Some Immigration Protest Organizers Fear Backlash Over Planned May 1st Work Stoppage

Organizers of the movement that has brought hundreds of thousands of people out into the streets all across America to protest tough new laws against illegal immigrants are now split over whether to go ahead with a planned national work stoppage and student boycott on May 1st.

Supporters want to dramatize the importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy by staying away for a day, and also hope to show that immigration reform is a major issue for future voters by having kids stay out of school. Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights, told AP, "Our credibility as a community is on the line. We've shown our power politically, but if we can't show it economically, we are going to lose it."

But others are worried about a backlash, concerned the action will make immigrants look anti-American, annoy the public, and alienate lawmakers still considering how to change immigration policy. They're also worried that thousands of people could get fired, and are concerned that keeping kids out of school sends the wrong message.

Some leaders have proposed a compromise, supporting a May 1st protest, but only after school lets out and businesses are closed. Among them is Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahoney, who's been outspoken in support of illegal immigrants. He said during Easter Mass, "Go to work. Go to school. And then join thousands of us at a major rally afterward."

Cruise: I'll eat placenta

TOM Cruise has claimed he will eat the PLACENTA after fiancée Katie Holmes has their baby.The actor, 43 — who wants her to give birth in silence according to his Scientology cult rules — said: “I’m gonna eat the placenta, too. “I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m going to eat the cord and the placenta right there.” But when a GQ magazine interviewer said it would be a big meal, Cruise replied: “OK, maybe I won’t.”

Most women will probably be aware of the age-old rumour that some mothers reputedly enjoy tucking into a nourishing meal of placenta after giving birth. Indeed it is commonplace for some cultures and, of course, many of our friends in the animal kingdom have always enjoyed it. However, to your average discerning human being it still doesn't seem that appealing a prospect. In the Western world it is accepted, although unproven, that eating placenta will reduce the risk of post-natal depression. This is because the organ is rich in minerals and vitamins, particularly B6, which can help to fight depression.

The criticism that a UK television show came in for a few years agao after showing the cooking and eating of a human placenta cannot have escaped the notice of many. The Broadcasting Standards Commission said that the programme has reportedly "breached convention" after an episode screened in February 1998, which showed a mother preparing and eating placenta pate to celebrate her daughter's birth. Incidentally, for those of you wishing to know how the "offending" placenta was cooked, it was fried with shallots and garlic, flambéed, pureed and served on focaccia bread. In fact it must have been pretty tasty as the father of the child was reported to have had seventeen helpings, though apparently, other guests on the programme were less enthusiastic!

The practice of eating placentas was also fashionable in the 1970s among so-called "earth mothers", but its popularity has since declined, with few mothers wanting to take their placentas home from hospital with them! Those people who agree with the practice of eating placentas argue that it is a perfectly normal thing to do, whilst those against are asking if a placenta belongs to the mother or the baby? If to the latter, this would imply cannibalism as pointed out by some of the nine viewers who complained about the television programme. However, during pregnancy the placenta is part of the mother, existing for the specific purpose of nourishing the baby until birth, after which it is expelled, ceasing to be part of the her.

Cooking Your Placenta!

There are several sumptuous recipes around so that you can enjoy cooking and eating your placenta;
this one is for roasting it:-

Work on the basis that each placenta weighs approximately 1/6 of the baby's weight. To prepare a placenta, cut the meat away from the membranes with a sharp knife. Discard the membranes.

Roast Placenta
1-3lb fresh placenta (must be no more than 3 days old)
1 onion
1 green or red pepper (green will add colour)
1 cup tomato sauce
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 tspn bay leaves
1 tspn black pepper
1 tspn white pepper
1 clove garlic (roasted and minced)


(Preheat oven to 350 degrees)
Chop the onion and the pepper & crush the saltines into crumbs.
Combine the placenta, onion, pepper, saltines, bay leaves, white and black pepper, garlic and tomato sauce.
Place in a loaf pan, cover then bake for one and a half hours, occasionally pouring off excess liquid.
Serve and enjoy!

Dehydrating your placenta!

Instead of cooking your placenta whole, you can dehydrate it and then add it to meals! The following method is extracted from an article entitled "Thinking About Eating Your Placenta?" by Susan James, which appeared in the winter 1996 issue of "The Compleat Mother". It was discovered posted on a newsgroup noticeboard, so we cannot absolutely guarantee its authenticity, or that it is an actual verbatim account of the magazine article.


"Cut off the cord and membranes. Steam the placenta, adding lemon grass, pepper and ginger to the steaming water. The placenta is "done" when no blood comes out when you pierce it with a fork. Cut the placenta into thin slices (like making jerky) and bake in a low-heat oven (200-250 degrees F), until it is dry and crumbly (several hours). Crush the placenta into a powder - using a food processor, blender, mortar and pestle, or by putting it in a bag and grinding it with rocks. Put the powder into empty gel caps (available at drug and health food stores) or just add a spoonful to your cereal, blender drink, etc. The recommended doses vary, some suggest up to 4 capsules a day, others just one. Perhaps the best advice is to take what makes you feel good".
If you think this is bad, try looking at the following website which has a section called Umbilical Cord Care/Placenta Questions!

If anyone has tried eating their placenta - dried or otherwise, perhaps they could let us know what it was like?!

Exxon Chairman To Receive $400 Million Retirement Package

Retiring Exxon chairman Lee Raymond is being given one of the biggest retirement packages ever, worth over $400 million, reports ABC News. This includes a pension and stock options, as well as other perks such as two years' worth of home security, personal security, use of a corporate jet, a car and driver, and more.

This is in addition to the money he has amassed from his annual salary, which was $51 million in 2005. That comes to about $141,000 for each day of work.

During Raymond's 12 years as Exxon chairman, it became the largest oil company in the world, and its stock went up 500 percent. Last year Exxon posted the largest annual profits of any company in history, at $36 billion.

Last year at hearings on gas prices, Raymond told Congress that the current high prices, which are reaching $3 per gallon in some areas, are due to global supply and demand.

I love a story like this it taps into class envy, jealousy and the anger associated with higher prices at the pumps. I hope he spends some of it at the dentist's office.

He is Risen!

Jn 20:1-9

On the first day of the week,
Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning,
while it was still dark,
and saw the stone removed from the tomb.
So she ran and went to Simon Peter
and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,
“They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and we don’t know where they put him.”
So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
and arrived at the tomb first;
he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.
When Simon Peter arrived after him,
he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,
and the cloth that had covered his head,
not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
Then the other disciple also went in,
the one who had arrived at the tomb first,
and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet understand the Scripture
that he had to rise from the dead.

Stroke killed Disney visitor

As predicted, with stunning accuracy, earlier this week on my show.

A German tourist who was hospitalized this week after riding Walt Disney World's Mission: Space died from a stroke, according to preliminary autopsy results released Friday.

Dr. Jan Garavaglia, chief medical examiner for Orange and Osceola counties, did not speculate on whether the $100 million centrifuge that spins riders at twice Earth's gravity contributed to the death of Hiltrud Blumel. Garavaglia noted that the autopsy of the 49-year-old woman from Schmitten, a town outside Frankfurt, showed "evidence of severe, long-standing high blood pressure."

Arizona Man Arrested After Involvement in Burning of Mexican Flag

A 58-year-old Tucson, Arizona, man was arrested Tuesday for his involvement in the burning of a Mexican flag during a counterprotest Monday (April 11th) at a pro-immigration rally, the Arizona Daily Star reported. Roy Warden was arrested on suspicion of assault, criminal damage and reckless burning. The assault charge was for his alleged assault on a TV cameraman and the criminal damage charge for harm done to a shuffleboard court where Warden's group, Border Guardians, was burning the flag.

The Border Guardians burned the Mexican flag as a counterprotest to the 15,000 marchers rallying in Tucson against what they see as an unfair legislative proposal against illegal immigrants. A scuffle broke out when the flag-burning began, and two girls were arrested for throwing water at Warden and other group members.

Warden claims the charges are the result of pressure from the Mexican Consulate, telling the Daily Star, "If they saw something unlawful, why didn't they commit an arrest then?" Laine Lawless, another member of the Border Guardians, told the newspaper the arrest was a petty way to punish the group for its dissenting voice.

What in the name of Sam Hill is going on? I can burn the American Flag that's protected speech under the 1st Amendment but I can't burn the Mexican Flag?

What To Do With Zacarias Moussaoui?

Many people want this "animal" executed, especially the grieving 9/11 families.

Still others say that will just give him what he wants: to be a radical Muslim martyr.

What about letting him rot in jail for the next 50-60 years? Wouldn't that be justice?

Well, according to one national security expert(Jed Babbin), that, too, would be a big mistake.

Why? Because American prisons are already breeding grounds for radical Muslim clerics and others spewing anti-Americanism and for finding new recruits, like Jose Padilla..

Another Retired U.S. General Calls for Rumsfeld to Resign

Recently retired two-star Major General John Batiste has joined a recent string of former generals in calling on Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign. In an interview with CNN Wednesday (April 12th), Batiste, who just a year ago commanded an Army division in Iraq, said, "I believe we need a fresh start in the Pentagon. We need a leader who understands teamwork, a leader who knows how to build teams, a leader that does it without intimidation." In speaking about the Defense Department leadership, Batiste said, "When decisions are made without taking into account sound military recommendations, sound military decision making, sound planning, then we're bound to make mistakes."

Batiste's 1st Infantry Division, nicknamed the "Big Red One," was based in Tikrit, and ended a yearlong deployment in May 2005. Batiste then retired last November. His comments come after three other retired senior officers, Marine Corps Lieutenant General Gregory Newbold, Army Major General Paul Eaton and Marine Corps General Anthony Zinni, all spoke out against Rumsfeld in recent weeks.

Also in the CNN interview:

Batiste said he was struck by the, quote, "lack of sacrifice and commitment on the part of the American people" to the war, beyond those families who have soldiers fighting in Iraq. He explained, "I think that our executive and legislative branches of government have a responsibility to mobilize this country for war. They frankly have not done so."

Speaking about the outcome of the war, Batiste said, "Whether we agree or not with the war in Iraq, we are where we are, and we must succeed in this endeavor. Failure is frankly not an option."

If these generals feel so strongly about this, do you think it was their responsibility to act or speak out more forcefully when they were still on active duty and could possibly have made a difference?

Anchor Babies? No Mas!

Debate Over Banning Citizenship For Immigrant Babies

As the debate continues to rage over how to handle the approximately 11 million illegal immigrants within the U.S., one group has a suggestion: take away the citizenship of their infants. The Birmingham News reports that the Alabama Federation of Republican Women is distributing dolls called "The $118 Billion Anchor Baby" to lawmakers and newspapers as a way of protesting their findings that about $118 billion in government services go to these families every year. They argue that those funds cut into health-care funding and services for Americans.

Under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, any baby born on U.S. soil is automatically a citizen. The AFRW calls the benefits given to these "anchor babies" an "irresistible lure" to illegal families, prompting many to sneak into the country. An estimated 350,000 babies are born to illegal immigrant parents each year; the group is calling for a limit to this citizenship rule to discourage pregnant immigrants from coming to the U.S.

To change the amendment, a bill would have to pass by a two-thirds majority in the House and Senate, then be presented to the states for approval.

Serious immigration reform must include eliminating the anchor baby provision. It's a big part of the reason we can't send home 12 million illegal aliens.

Most Ridiculous Item of the Day

I took time on my show today to refute Jim Phillips' ridiculous assertion that if we do away with Illegal immigrants soon we'll be paying $15 for a head of cabbage.

Jimbo here are some facts...

Take agriculture. Phillip Martin, an economist at the University of California, Davis, has demolished the argument that a crackdown on illegals would ruin it, or be a hardship to consumers. Most farming — livestock, grains, etc. — doesn't heavily rely on hired workers. Only about 20 percent of the farm sector does, chiefly those areas involving fresh fruit and vegetables.

The average "consumer unit" in the U.S. spends $7 a week on fresh fruit and vegetables, less than is spent on alcohol, according to Martin. On a $1 head of lettuce, the farm worker gets about 6 or 7 cents, roughly 1/15th of the retail price. Even a big run-up in the cost of labor can't hit the consumer very hard.

Martin recalls that the end of the bracero guest-worker program in the mid-1960s caused a one-year 40 percent wage increase for the United Farm Workers Union. A similar wage increase for legal farm workers today would work out to about a 10-dollar-a-year increase in the average family's bill for fruit and vegetables. Another thing happened with the end of the bracero program: The processed-tomato industry, which was heavily dependent on guest workers and was supposed to be devastated by their absence, learned how to mechanize and became more productive.

Sen. Gary Siplin Turns Himself In (Watch Gary run from the cameras)

WESH2 is reporting...

ORLANDO, Fla. -- After an eight-month investigation, an arrest warrant was issued Monday by the State Attorney's office for State Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando.

It's the first time that a sitting state senator in the district has ever been charged with a crime related to his office, WESH 2 News reported.

Siplin turned himself in in Polk County on Monday afternoon, officials said. He was fingerprinted, booked and given all of his paperwork. Officials said he then bonded out of jail.

Siplin is facing two charges, including a felony grand theft charge and a misdemeanor charge for allegedly misusing the services of officers and state employees. The charges stem from allegations of using public employees to work on his private campaign.

"This amounts to grand larceny under the law of Florida," said State Attorney Lawson Lamar. "This case centers on a person in a position of trust utilizing approximately three months of labor funded by taxpayer dollars for his personal campaign in his personal politics." MORE

'Shoot illegals' comment earns host FCC complaint

WND is reporting...

Radio talker says suggestion to 'kill whoever crosses the border' satirical

Arizona's attorney general and a U.S. federal attorney filed a complaint with the Federal Communication Commission yesterday against a Phoenix radio station and a fill-in talk show host over comments made last month suggesting the solution to the illegal immigration problem was to "randomly pick one night every week where we will kill whoever crosses the border."

In their letter to the FCC, Attorney General Terry Goddard and U.S. Attorney Paul Charlton criticized the March 8 broadcast by host Brian James on KFYI as "dangerous."

"This type of threatening and inciting speech is dangerous and totally irresponsible for anyone, particularly a licensed body using the public airways," Goddard and Charlton wrote. "We are deeply concerned that, given the intensifying conflict over immigration in Arizona, this speech may lead to violence. Tempers are short on both sides and the situation is highly volatile."

"At no time during this hour did Mr. James disavow violence or indicate he was joking," the letter claimed. The pair also urged the FCC to consider sanctions against the station. MORE

Protesters Say Carrying Mexican Flag Isn't Meant as Lack of U.S. Loyalty

Many Americans have been turned off and angered by the sight of many participants in the recent protests against a crackdown on illegal immigration carrying Mexican flags. But protesters and their backers are saying the flags are meant as a sign of cultural pride, and are being misconstrued as a lack of loyalty to the U.S.

Dolores Huerta, who co-founded the United Farm Workers of America with Cesar Chavez, told AP, "The Mexican flag is like a symbol of dignity and identity and pride for the people who carry it. ... Pride and roots is what it is. It definitely does not mean separation or nationalism in the sense that we want to go back to Mexico." Gabriela Lemus, director of policy and legislation at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), compared it to another ethnic group carrying their flag, telling AP, "Nobody gets upset with the Irish on St. Patrick's Day." But, she said, LULAC is encouraging protesters to carry both the U.S. and Mexican flags.

Isidro D. Ortiz, a political scientist and professor of Chicano and Chicana studies at San Diego State University, had slightly different take. He agreed that the flag is primarily a symbol of Mexican pride, but said in the current climate, Latinos also want to express dissatisfaction with how they're treated. He told AP, "[They] have been trying for some time to imagine themselves as part of the United States. What they've experienced is refusal."

Does it bother you when the protesters against an illegal immigration crackdown carry the Mexican flag?

What do you think of Professor Ortiz's statement that carrying the Mexican flag is also meant to show dissatisfaction by Latinos at how they've been treated?

Do you believe that the U.S. has shown Latinos a refusal to accept them as part of the U.S.?

Oil for immigrants!!

Fort Collins, CO: While a guest on the “James Gang Show” on KCOL 600 radio, Mike Wiley, the former Conservative Democrat, who campaigned against NAFTA during his 1994 US Senate race in Florida and now author of the new non-fiction book, “Diary of Hillary’s Right Wing Conspirator” made the following comments about his solution to the immigration problem for both sides of the Mexican border:

“You have heard of “Oil for Food”, the corrupt UN program that sent money to France, Germany and Russia for secret weapons work and WMDs, well now it’s time for an “Oil for Immigrants program”.

“With the passage of the 1994 NAFTA agreement, I believe it supports my contention that Mexico owes the US at least $261 billion in goods in exchange for the eleven million illegal immigrants that have been in the US since the implementation of NAFTA on January 1, 1994.”

“Based on rough estimates of the average cost of oil over the past ten years, Mexico needs to deliver 8.7 billion barrels of oil in order to balance the costs incurred by the US taxpayers over the past ten years. With the acknowledgement that it will be difficult to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants, a solution that benefits Americans needs to be considered. The addition of 8.7 billion barrels of oil to the US inventory should cause gas prices to tumble and provide an immediate relief to the average citizen who pays all the bills generated by a free spending congress.”

Bush 'is planning nuclear strikes on Iran's secret sites'

First of all it's an anonymously sourced article by Seymour Hersh of the NewYorker Magazine, so let's take it with a grain of salt. It could be nothing more than another scare tactic of the left. But what if it is true? Would it be a bad idea? Hardly! Think of how many US Military lives it would save. It looks like old George has a little bit of Harry Truman in him, which is not a bad thing.

"President Reagan reserved the right to use nuclear weapons against the Soviets.

The first President Bush let Saddam know he would use nukes if Saddam went chemical.

The current President Bush let Saddam know he would use nukes if Saddam went WMD and reports have indicated he would also go nuclear if Al Qaeda struck the US with WMDs.

So why is it a BIG SURPRISE to Seymour Hersh and the New Yorker Magazine that President Bush would consider, as an option, tactical nuclear weapons against Iran in the same way JFK considered using nukes against the USSR during the Cuba Missile Crisis?"-Frank Gaffney

Would President Bush go to war to stop Tehran from getting the bomb?

The Bush Administration, while publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon, has increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack. Current and former American military and intelligence officials said that Air Force planning groups are drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to establish contact with anti-government ethnic-minority groups. The officials say that President Bush is determined to deny the Iranian regime the opportunity to begin a pilot program, planned for this spring, to enrich uranium. MORE

Durbin Falsely Claims US Has Been In Iraq Longer Than In WWII (VIDEO)

On the floor of the Senate today, Sen. Dick Durbin (D – IL) said that we have been in Iraq longer than we have been in World War II:

DURBIN: The Iraqi War has lasted longer than World War II.

WRONG! The US has been in Iraq for a little over three years. Germany and Japan declared war on the United States in December 1941. The war ended on September 2, 1945 with the surrender of Japan.

Last month Harry Reid said the same thing on CNN’s The Situation Room.

Why a Hairstyle Made Headlines

Aesthetically speaking, it was not one of McKinney's better moments. Her hair, which she had for years worn in thick braids, seemed to be in a limbo between a polished Afro and a head of funky twists. Had the humidity gotten to it?

In an investigation into her personal styling techniques, a call went out to her Washington office. McKinney started wearing her hair loose in January, according to spokesman Coz Carson. When asked whether the new style had been done by a professional or by the congresswoman herself, Carson shouted, "That's a woman's question!" Which is to say, he did not know the answer, nor did he respond to a subsequent e-mail assuring him that the question was asked in all seriousness.

Hairstylist Christine Kendrick, who does not work with McKinney, provided a few general insights. As far as she could tell, McKinney's new style is a "twist-out." "You can keep the look for about three days," says Kendrick, who owns Artistic Expressions Natural Hair Salon in Camp Springs.

"But if it gets wet, it's just all over. . . . And when it hits the elements, it dries out." At the news conference, it looked as though McKinney's twist-out had passed its expiration date.


Instead, talk turned ugly on blogs about her news-conference hair. It became the impetus for all sorts of racially driven insults about her locks and their natural texture. A black woman's hair is an easy, timeworn source of racist mockery. It has become an exhausting cliche of self-loathing whether it is kinky, hot-combed, braided, locked or chemically relaxed. (Indeed, plenty of black folks see all kinds of dire race-traitor undertones in Condoleezza Rice's smooth, controlled cap of hair.) A black woman's hair is a bottomless source of inspiration for essays, books and documentaries.

But for McKinney, hair is part of her politics.

And dismissing queries about it seems a bit disingenuous, since so much of her public persona, from the moment she arrived in Congress in 1992, has been based on her hair. Up until this year, she wore it in two thick braids wrapped around her head -- often held together by a large bow -- despite suggestions from her own advisers to change it. It was a hairstyle sometimes seen on elementary school girls, but rarely on professional women. The braids made her look as though she should be hiking up the Alps wearing a gingham dress and carrying two milk pails.

Want to make the country poorer? Close the borders.

From Friday's WSJ...

Jobs Americans Won't Do
Want to make the country poorer? Close the borders.

President Bush is taking knocks from all sides in the immigration debate over his argument that the U.S. needs foreign workers to fill "jobs Americans don't want." Economists on both the left and right say Mr. Bush is ignoring the role of "prices"--and that more Americans would happily mow lawns and bus tables if those jobs paid more than they currently do.
Well, we're always happy to see leftish economists paying attention to prices. Would that they also did so when promoting minimum-wage laws and health-care mandates. Less helpful is to see allegedly free-market sorts embrace the idea that something called "the economy" can be closed off at the national border. These fair-weather free-marketeers need a little re-education on global labor markets.

Certainly if we could somehow seal the border--and good luck with that--the market would adjust to the shrinking supply of labor; wages and prices would adapt. The country could survive without foreign labor in the same way we cope with shortages of steel, or sugar for that matter. But economics is about trade-offs. So the real question isn't whether living in a closed economy is possible. It's whether the U.S. is better off moving in that direction. MORE

Video games a hit with Oregon inmates

Flat Screen TVs and Video Games for the inmates!?!

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Kodi Dodgin used to be one of the Oregon prison system's most prolific troublemakers. Now he's only causing problems in space.
Prison records show seven incidents in which Dodgin was sent to disciplinary segregation. But now, Dodgin says, he's been free of trouble for almost two years, thanks in part to the video games he gets to play at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution in Umatilla, where the 23-year-old is serving nine years for assault, attempted escape and other crimes.

Dodgin said nothing takes his mind off prison like the intergalactic war game Star Ally.

"You get all these weapons and you've got to beat the four boss men," Dodgin said. "You kill your enemies. They let off these bubbles sometimes. You collect their bubbles, and you get all these weapons."

The $35 video game consoles, pre-loaded with 50 games, are being offered as an incentive for good behavior. Prisoners earn the right to buy one after 18 months of good behavior.

"It's a hot item," said Randy Geer, administrator of the Department of Corrections' non-cash incentives program. "Inmates want one, and it appears to be motivating them."

Not long ago, prisoners stayed out of trouble to get time off their sentences. But Measure 11's mandatory sentences for violent crimes ended that incentive for 40% of the state's inmates.

In 2003, state prisons started offering $300 flat-screen televisions that could be bolted to bunks and hooked up to cable. In 2004 and 2005, 2,398 inmates with at least six months of clean discipline bought the 7-inch LCD sets.

As a result, the once-frequent brawls in recreation rooms over where to sit and what to watch rarely happen these days, officers and prisoners say.
This is punishment????

World to witness first virtual crucifixion

Online gamer to be virtually hung on cross for seven days for cheating in multi-player online game

Spero News

An ancient punishment is handed out for the all-too-modern crime of ganking (or gang-killing new players) as Roman-style justice returns to Britain for the first time in nearly 20 centuries.

The world will witness its first Roman-style crucifixion for almost two millennia later this week, when "Cynewulf" is nailed to a cross as punishment for killing other players as they first appear on screen.

Cynewulf, (in real life a 27 year-old electrical engineer from Flint, Michigan, USA) has no need to worry about suffering any permanent pain to his hands or feet, however, as this barbaric sentence is due to be carried out in cyberspace; in the virtual world of Roma Victor.

Roma Victor is an online recreation of Britain in Roman times, where players live virtual lives as slaves and citizens of the conquering Empire. The massive multi-player online world is currently in the final stages of testing and will officially launch on July 1st 2006, after which thousands of players will be able to live out their own virtual lives within ancient Roman-occupied Britannia.

Cynewulf, who is the first player within Roma Victor to receive this brutal punishment, will be hung on a cross for a full seven days on full public display in the digital reconstruction of the provincial town of Corstopitum (modern day Corbridge in Northumberland, England).

Kerry Fraser-Robinson, RedBedlam’s CEO says: "Roma Victor has been designed from the outset to offer an historically authentic and realistic virtual world. Although crucifixion is nowadays synonymous with persecution and religious symbolism, in 180 C.E. it was just one of many severe punishments used by the Romans to punish criminals and to send a clear message out to other potential wrong-doers.

"And since our online world is historically authentic, we feel that applying this punishment to cheats, hackers and other virtual wrongdoers is not only appropriate, but also adds to the gaming experience by resonating with classical history," he said.

Crucifixion is to be used as a form of player ban within the virtual world of Roma Victor, with the length of the ban reflecting the severity of the punishment. For cheating by exploiting a bug and advancing his or her character's skills unfairly, for example, a player might typically receive a seven-day ban; multiple or more serious offences will result in a longer (or even permanent) ban.

How does Mexico deal with Illegal Immigration?

Rush brought this up on his show today(Thursday). I told you about it on-air Monday morning!

* published in the Washington Times on 4/4/06


By Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.

The Congress has received lots of free advice lately from Mexican government officials and illegal aliens waving Mexico’s flag in mass demonstrations coast-to-coast. Most of it takes the form of bitter complaints about our actual or prospective treatment of immigrants from that country who have gotten into this one illegally – or who aspire to do so.

If you think these critics are mad about U.S. immigration policy now, imagine how upset they would be if we adopted an approach far more radical than the bill they rail against which was adopted last year by the House of Representatives – namely, the way Mexico treats illegal aliens.

In fact, as a just-published paper by the Center for Security Policy’s J. Michael Waller ( points out, under a constitution first adopted in 1917 and subsequently amended, Mexico deals harshly not only with illegal immigrants. It treats even legal immigrants, naturalized citizens and foreign investors in ways that would, by the standards of those who carp about U.S. immigration policy, have to be called “racist” and “xenophobic.”

For example, according to an official translation published by the Organization of American States, the Mexican constitution includes the following restrictions:

- Pursuant to Article 33, “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.” This ban applies, among other things, to participation in demonstrations and the expression of opinions in public about domestic politics like those much in evidence in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere in recent days.

- Equal employment rights are denied to immigrants, even legal ones. Article 32: “Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable.”

- Jobs for which Mexican citizenship is considered “indispensable” include, pursuant to Article 32, bans on foreigners, immigrants, and even naturalized citizens of Mexico serving as military officers, Mexican-flagged ship and airline crew, and chiefs of seaports and airports.

- Article 55 denies immigrants the right to become federal lawmakers. A Mexican congressman or senator must be “a Mexican citizen by birth.” Article 91 further stipulates that immigrants may never aspire to become cabinet officers as they are required to be Mexican by birth. Article 95 says the same about Supreme Court justices.

In accordance with Article 130, immigrants – even legal ones – may not become members of the clergy, either.

- Foreigners, to say nothing of illegal immigrants, are denied fundamental property rights. For example, Article 27 states, “Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican companies have the right to acquire ownership of lands, waters, and their appurtenances, or to obtain concessions for the exploitation of mines or of waters.”

- Article 11 guarantees federal protection against “undesirable aliens resident in the country.” What is more, private individuals are authorized to make citizen’s arrests. Article 16 states, “In cases of flagrante delicto, any person may arrest the offender and his accomplices, turning them over without delay to the nearest authorities.” In other words, Mexico grants its citizens the right to arrest illegal aliens and hand them over to police for prosecution. Imagine the Minutemen exercising such a right!

- The Mexican constitution states that foreigners – not just illegal immigrants – may be expelled for any reason and without due process. According to Article 33, “the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.”

As the immigration debate in the Senate moves into a decisive phase this week, legislators who believe America’s southern border must be secured, the Nation’s existing immigration laws enforced and illegal aliens not rewarded with permanent residency and a direct path to citizenship are being sharply criticized and, in some cases, defamed as bigots and xenophobes. Yet, even their maximalist positions generally pale in comparison with the treatment authorized by the Mexican constitution.

So the next time such legislators – and the majority of Americans for whom they speak – are assaulted by Mexican officials, undocumented aliens waving Mexican flags in mass demonstrations here in the United States, clergy and self-described humanitarians, businessmen and other advocates of illegal immigration ask them this: Would they favor having the U.S. impose the same restrictions on immigrants – legal and illegal – that Mexico imposes on their counterparts there?

Nothing of the kind is in the cards, of course. Nor should it be. Legal immigration and the opportunity for foreign investors and other nationals to contribute to this country are not only one of its hallmarks; they are among the reasons for its greatness.

Still, we should not allow the hypocrisy of others’ treatment of undocumented aliens in their countries to induce us to refrain from taking effective steps to prevent further illegal immigration: by building a fence along our southern border; by enforcing immigration laws in the workplace and elsewhere; and by discouraging more such violations – with potentially grave national security implications – by dealing effectively with those who have already broken those laws by coming here without permission.

A Tale of Two Immigrants(via Polipundit)

Consider the case of two men, “Oswaldo,” and “Vikas.”

Vikas is a highly educated, experienced computer software engineer from India. He obtained a good job with a US company that was looking for certain specific high-tech skills. In order to obtain a “H1-B” visa to the US, Vikas went through an arduous process, which included waiting in line from dawn to dusk at the US embassy, and dealing with a quota system that limits H1-Bs to 65,000 visas/year. The quota is usually filled on the very first day every year; so you have to file a year in advance. The processing fees run to thousands of dollars, and extensive documentation must be provided.

Vikas’s H1-B visa was valid for three years, and could have been renewed for three more. After that, Vikas would have had to leave the country.

As an H1-B visa holder, Vikas paid income, Social Security and Medicare taxes. But he is not eligible for any of the Social Security or Medicare benefits.

Vikas could not change employers unless he could find another employer able and willing to sponsor his visa out of the quota of 65,000, and go through the extensive paperwork. Vikas was not eligible for unemployment benefits. In fact, if he lost his job he would have to immediately leave the US.

Vikas was laid off. He had to decide between staying here illegally, or leaving the country. Vikas did the right thing, and went back to India, where the per-capita income is about $3,000/year. His children will be raised in a third-world country, and have only third-world opportunities when they grow up.

Vikas really exists. He is a friend of mine. I’ve changed his name to protect the innocent (no pun intended.)

Oswaldo is a high-school drop-out from Mexico. Oswaldo paid a “coyote” $2,000 to smuggle him over the US border. Along the way, Oswaldo’s group trashed an Arizona ranch and accidentally started a forest fire where they camped. Oswaldo made his way to North Carolina, where he paid a forger $100 for a fake Green Card and a fake Social Security card. Using these forged documents, Oswaldo found work at a construction site. Oswaldo has now been violating US laws for seven years.

Oswaldo had his family smuggled in from Mexico. His wife now also works illegally with forged documents. Their children get free education at an American public school, and will be eligible for in-state tuition at the University of North Carolina when they grow up. Oswaldo and his wife just had another son, who is a US citizen by virtue of birth.

In order to be eligible for the McCain-Kennedy amnesty, Oswaldo will have to prove that he has been violating US laws for seven years. He can then pay a $2,000 fine, pay back-taxes, and be eligible for a real “Green Card” in six years. Once he obtains the “Green Card,” Oswaldo will be eligible to live in the US permanently. He can apply for US citizenship in five years.

Under current laws, America provides temporary three-year visas to only 65,000 skilled experts like Vikas every year. There is no clear “path to citizenship” for them; when their visas expire, or they get laid off, they’re supposed to immediately leave the country. Getting a “Green Card” on the basis of your skills, education, and inteligence, is a difficult, almost-impossible process.

Under the McCain-Kennedy plan, America would provide an automatic path to citizenship to an additional 400,000 low-skilled, poorly-educated workers like Oswaldo every year. McCain-Kennedy claim this is a “guest” worker program.

Under the McCain-Kennedy plan, America will also provide citizenship to 12 million lawbreakers like Oswaldo, who are already in the US. They claim this is not an “amnesty.”

Call your senators.

The message is clear; If you play by the rules you lose. If you cheat, lie and break the law you will be rewarded!

Cynthia McKinney’s Statement: Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Black (VIDEO)

Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D – GA) appeared on CNN this afternoon with two of her lawyers to discuss the altercation that occurred last week between the congress- woman and a Capitol police officer.

When Wolf Blitzer would ask about the incident she would immediately turn it into a race issue, even if it had nothing to do with it. One time she answered that school children who visited McKinney were being eyed on by police, simply because they were black. Or perhaps it could have been because they were in the Capitol building and it is the police’s job to keep a watch on everyone.

When one of her lawyers, James Myart, was asked if there was a physical altercation he too immediately turned this into a race issue. Later in the interview, Blitzer asked the lawyer if he thought the officer acted appropriately to being stopped. Myart turned the question around and rhetorically asked Wolf if the congresswoman reacted and acted appropriately.

McKinney contradicted herself several times during the interview. One of those times was when CNN put up a screen split three ways. The first one was a live shot of McKinney, the second was a several month old photo and the third was a recent photo. I am not sure if McKinney was aware or not that the screen showed those pictures because she said that there was no excuse for the police officer for not recognizing her because nothing has changed about her looks. However, later in the interview she said that her hair-do has changed and implied that isn’t an excuse, even though the police officer couldn’t see her face as her back was turned to him/her as she passed through security.

Savage Remarks Anger Catholics

The Catholic League, a civil rights group, is fuming mad over comments made by talk radio star Michael Savage last week.

In a broadacst on March 28, Savage, the nation's third most listened to radio talk show host, slammed the Catholic Church for helping to organize recent mass protests of illegal immigrants.

According to a transcript published by the Catholic League, Savage said:

"It is a pig story! It’s animal farm all over again. And also make no bones about it, it’s the greedy Catholic Church that was behind it because the people of America walked away from the molesters’ dens and they need to bring in people from the Third World who are still gullible enough to sit there and listen to the molesters ... the Roman Catholic Church was behind this, the Roman Catholic Church started this a year ago. The Roman Catholic Church flooded the streets because they cannot get parishioners anymore amongst educated white people who have caught onto the racket and instead they need to import dummies to sit in the church pews. That’s the story and it is not difficult for you to understand — I’m telling you the truth. It’s all about greed. It’s greed at the top of the Catholic Church.

"Make no mistake about why this is happening," Savage continued. "This has nothing to do with compassion for Mexican workers. This has nothing to do with fairness for Mexican workers — it has to do with the greed ... That’s all there is to it. And that includes the Catholic Church pigs. And if you don’t like it, don’t listen to the show — I really don’t care anymore. I’m not going to be duped by this sanctimonious garbage that all churches are good and that the institution itself is good. Bah humbug. The institution is rotten from the top to the bottom."

Did Michael Savage cross the line or did he hit the nail on the head?
