No Need For Reform. Enforce Immigration Law

It's simple. If you break the law entering the United States you are a criminal and should be deported.

If the government doesn't, this is the scum we end up with. What is it that people do not understand about this?

Virginia AG Credits Local, State Officials with Capturing Sex Offenders in Illegal Immigration Crackdown
Violent sex offenders who are also illegal aliens in Virginia were identified, located, and deported thanks to a well-coordinated joint operation earlier this year involving both state and federal officials.

The effort should serve as a model for immigration enforcement throughout the United States, Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s Republican attorney general, told CNSNews.com in an exclusive interview.

“Operation Cold Play” made it possible for the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to place 171 convicted criminal alien sex offenders into deportation proceedings thanks in large part to local and state involvement in the investigation, McDonnell explained in an email.

After examining the birthplace of each offender in Virginia’s sex offender registry, state police shared the information with ICE agents, who then cross-checked the information with their own databases.

The joint effort between Virginia and ICE was part of a larger federal initiative called Operation Predator, which was launched in 2003 for the purpose of targeting child pornographers, human traffickers and smugglers.

Illegal is illegal. Period. We don't need scum like this on our streets. They should have been deported immediately.

What Is Fun Could Just Be Dangerous

I haven't really thought that much about the Obama's birth. I have had a lot of people ask me about it or they have given me the complete conspiracy theory about the Obama not being born in Hawaii, but Indonesia or the darkest heart of Africa all ending with the thought that Obama just ain't a citizen thus he was illegally elected president which means a re-vote or Jabberin' Joe Biden gets the nod or Nana Pelosi being elevated to the Oval Office. Me? I'm holding out for a re-vote.

Former Obama opponent now suing to prove President-elect's citizenship

Of course if Obama just released his real birth information then all of this silliness would just go away. On the other hand...

Soros Succeeded, Obama Is In & So Is Soros

Soros-Funded Democratic Idea Factory Becomes Obama Policy Font
Three blocks from the White House, on the 10th floor of a sleek glass building, young workers pound at computers, with giant flat-screen TVs overhead. It has the look and feel of a high-tech startup.

In many ways it is. The product is ideas.

Thanks in part to funding from benefactors such as billionaire George Soros, the Center for American Progress has become in just five years an intellectual wellspring for Democratic policy proposals, including many that are shaping the agenda of the new Obama administration.
CAP's president and founder, John Podesta, 59, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, is one of three people running the transition team for president-elect Barack Obama, 47. A squadron of CAP experts is working with them.

In addition to Podesta, at least 10 other CAP experts are advising the incoming administration, including Melody Barnes, the center's executive vice president for policy who co-chairs the agency-review working group and Cassandra Butts, the senior vice president for domestic policy, who is now a senior transition staffer.

Some of the group's recommendations already have been adopted by the president-elect:

1. withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq
2.universal health coverage
3.create "green jobs'' linked to alleviating global climate change
4.creation of a ``National Energy Council'' headed by an official with the stature of the national security adviser
5.creation of a White House ``office of social entrepreneurship'' to spur new ideas for addressing social problems.

1.Retreat in Iraq
2.Socialized health care
3.Vitalize global warming hoax to reward friends
4.Destroy domestic coal and oil industries in America now to revitalize later for political advantage
5.In an entrepreneurial style, identify new social "problems" to leverage power and later campaign victories

But will the empty trains run on time?

Taxes Are Killing US

I added two (2) rooms to my house and the county raised my property taxe 66%. When I objected, I was led to believe that a responsive government was being lenient by reducing that increase to 63% and that I should be grateful.

This project kept 3 men employed for months as well as the owner of the construction company. The electric contractor had 4 workers. The HVAC contractor had 3 men. The company that installed the plumbing and gas lines included 3 men. That's 13 people working, earning a good wage and paying taxes.

Then there were the people that worked at the lumber yard and those who delivered the trusses, joists, roofing, studs, flooring material, windows, insulation, dry wall, paint, masonry, doors, lighting and all the trim work. All of the material came from people working in industry, drivers making deliveries, lumber mills, lumberjacks, asphalt plants, gypsum companies, glass manufacturers, window and door companies, fiberglass plants, metal manufacturers, stone companies, wire mills, plastics and rubber companies and block and brick companies as well as the nails, screws, glues, door knobs, locks, hinges, light switches, thermostats, ceiling lights, pot lights, fireplace inserts and more. The number of workers involved? I'm not sure, but I know they all paid taxes as well as the corporate/business taxes their employers paid.

All of those workers bought things, such as food, dinners, goods and services for themselves from people who did the same and all paid taxes.

I pay 63% more property tax each year for improving our lives and I hope the lives of all the workers involved in my two (2) room addition to my home.

With this in mind, I came across a great article from a site I like, And You Thought YOU Were Cranky, that concerned just new taxes and doesn't have room to include all the taxes including state and local as well as county taxes, but it is a very good start:

Here's the poem about taxes...At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
upon his tomb,
' Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians????!!!!'And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?"

BIG HAT TIP to Piano Girl who shared this explanation of true charity with me.

Liberals and their lackies in the Democrat Party now want to bring us more. They say it will make America a better and more prosperous country. They're morons if they think it will work.
