Osama Bin Dead

on Tuesday, July 17, 2007

… and has ‘bin’ for some time now according to analysis of a “recent” video published by As Sahab. Even though the video is 40 minutes long, Bin Laden only gets a 50 second clip from a 6-year-old video, and this is his first appearance in over 3 years – further evidence that Osama is pushing up daisies. Take a look at the picture at the top of the posting:

Clearly you can see that the footage is actually from a video that was shot for a 2001 pre-9/11 propaganda video. (For the record, this isn’t the first time that Bin Laden videos and audiotapes have been fudged to make both his minions as well as the world believe he is still alive and well.) Also, the ‘new’ clip shows Bin Laden is using his left hand. However, in the U.S. led attack at Tora Bora in late 2001, Bin Laden’s left side and hand were critically injured and he never moved his left hand in any video from that point on. The ‘new’ clip shows Bin Laden praising martyrdom by stating that:

By him in whose hands my life is! I would love to attack and be martyred, then attack again and be martyred, then attack again and be martyred.

Oh, how I would love to grant him his wish. I mean, if he is so excited about dying then why doesn’t he just jump out in front of a group of about 10 marines? What a coward.

Could Bin Laden’s cronies be setting up the announcement of his death by propagandizing that OBL actually wanted to die?

I hope the virgins he received in heaven looked and sounded like Hillary and Rosie.

** Scary side note -
Listen to the words from al-Zawahiri in this week’s video clip:

Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.
Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.
Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.

Interesting how he repeats the phrase 3 times. According to Islamic Law you are required to warn your enemies 3 times before you attack them. Note also that Bin Laden repeats his wish 3 times as well. Could this be the ‘greenlight’ to their terrorist agents in the field that they can now execute their attacks on America?**

Today is Opposite Day

on Sunday, July 15, 2007

Much of our country seems to have their mentality about terrorism completely backwards. Here are just a few recent examples of this phenomenon that I have been quite perplexed with:

1) Rosie O'Donnell - Rosie makes it so easy for me to pick on her. Recently she posted pictures on her blog with her daughter dressed as an Islamic militant stating that she thought it was "funny." Oops, I'm sorry, I almost forgot that the inhumane crimes executed by those same Islamic extremists you mimic are hilarious - Good one, Rosie!! Later she was forced to backtrack her intended 'statement to America' (as she usually does) by saying that her daughter was simply "dressing up." If that were true, then why is her daughter posing like a terrorist? Funny you say?...

Speaking of jokes, she also became the laughingstock of late night TV when she stated a while back that "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America"... Could that statement be any more wrong? Rosie, I'm sure you're just bitter that most Christian religions won't allow you to marry, but calling Christianity "just as threatening" is about as backwards as it gets. As I have already mentioned before, certain progressives like Rosie O'Donnell would be wise to remember that homosexuals (like Rosie) are to be punished by death according to Islamic law! Ironic, isn't it? Since when do Christians mandate such a law, Rosie?

Another thought on O'Donnell: Several times she has called all Americans "terrorists" while simultaneously calling Al Qaeda soldiers "heroes" as well as "brave men, women, and children." Congratulations, Rosie, you've got it backwards once again! Look, if we Americans are such terrible people, why don't you just pack up and move off to Afghanistan to live with the "brave heroes" Rosie? It's becoming ever more apparent that you just shoot your mouth off because you're addicted to publicity.

Unfortunately, a handful of liberal pundits attempt to defend every retarded word that exits her fat mouth.

2) Hollywood - Hollywood is notorious for slanting left. I'm constantly amused by how involved in politics many actors and actresses are, when they themselves clearly don't understand the most basic principles from PoliSci 101. In fact, almost all of these individuals have no particular expertise, education, or experience in the areas in which they become “spokespersons” and recent info has shown that most of these celebrities have no more than a high school diploma.

In the recent past, scores of celebrities have joined the Hollywood bandwagon (more like paddy wagon) of "impeach Bush" while defiantly proclaiming their "knowledge" on topics like terrorism and global warming. Let's see how backwards and hypocritical some of their "knowledge" is:

Cameron Diaz -
In 2004 Diaz appeared on Oprah and clumsily worded the phrase, "Women have so much to lose... I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. If you think rape should be legal then don't vote. But if you think you have a right to your body and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote." Brilliant.

While it's perfectly fine that Diaz acts as an 'activist' for women and hates rape, she should have thought twice before she dressed herself on a recent trip to Peru. While visiting Machu Picchu in the Andes, Diaz was spotted wearing a purse with the phrase "Serve the People" written in Chinese - perhaps the Chinese Communist leader Mao's most famous political slogan. But wait Cameron, weren't Mao's policies the exact OPPOSITE of what you were campaigning on Oprah earlier? After all, the Maoist Shining Path insurgency brought Peru to edge of chaos in the late 80s/early 90s with a campaign of massacres, assassinations, bombings... AND RAPE! Nearly 70,000 people, including tens of thousands of women, died in the struggle. Here is one more example of Hollywood's "do as I say, not as I wear" ideology.

Let's continue. Here is one more example of Hollywood's constant stream of political fashion blunders...

Kirsten Dunst -
Hollywood idiot Kirsten Dunst proclaims that she is obsessed with the Democratic party and is an outspoken opponent of both war and the Bush administration. Yet she was just featured in Teen Vogue wearing a new 'Breezy Global-Chic Scarf.' What you didn't know was that this 'chic scarf' is actually a kaffiyeh, originally a Palestinian symbol of terrorism and intifada. Way to go Dunst! Nothing says you're an opponent of war more than wearing the original terrorist scarf! Once again, Hollywood preaches one thing, and then imprudently prances around helping to endorse the very thing they supposedly preach against. They've got it all wrong once again.

**In light of all this, Dunst remains a member of Democratic Party supporter Richard Blackwell's fabulous, best-dressed fashion list. Unbelievable**

Danny Glover -
Mr. Glover, along with many other Hollywood nitwits, has signed a letter supporting Communist dictator Fidel Castro and has been an outspoken supporter of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez! Why?!? Although Chávez has tried to conceal the evidence, the U.S. News & World Report, as well as numerous U.S. government officials, claim that the Chávez administration allows alleged terrorist organizations to operate within Venezuela's borders, including both the anti-American Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya. Whose side are these Hollywood stars really on?! Hmm, supporting dictators that support anti-American terrorist organizations - they really do have it completely backwards, don't they?! I think Forrest Gump’s momma said it best when she said, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

3) Professors and so-called 'Educators' - Just because Pink Floyd said, "we don’t need no education" doesn't mean that we actually need to implement the idea. Just yesterday British newspapers reported that schools will no longer be teaching about Winston Churchill, but rather will replace the curriculum with teachings on global warming and GM foods... (I'm speechless) ...Churchill, voted the greatest ever Briton and is quite arguably considered one of the saviors of WWII, will no longer be taught in the public classroom. Both Gandhi and Martin Luther King were also removed from the curriculum. Nice move! There's no better way to battle both the fascist Islamic ideology and the terrorist forces that haunt the streets of the UK than to stop teaching about Churchill and start teaching about global warming and GM foods. Backwards again. No wonder Al Qaeda is reportedly gaining strength...

4) Political Correctness - Why is our media so afraid of calling people what they really are? It seems that lately people are scared to say the word 'terrorist' and instead use the more politically correct term 'insurgent.' Oh, I'm sorry. We don't want to hurt the little terrorists' feelings now, do we? Give me a break! If a man straps a bomb to his chest and runs into a market with the sole purpose of getting the largest body count he can, that man is a terrorist. Not a 'freedom fighter.' Not a 'revolutionary.' Not an 'insurgent.' A terrorist. Unfortunately, both our media and our politicians fail to see how nice they are to the very people who have sworn an oath to kill them. And based on the latest intelligence that an attack is coming before the end of the summer, I hope they learn it soon.

Why Pelosi Won’t Call for the Impeachment of Bush

on Thursday, July 12, 2007

Cindy Sheehan has lost it!

No, no... not her mind (she lost that years ago), I’m talking about her support from much of the left. Several days ago, Sheehan threatened Speaker of the House Pelosi stating that, if Pelosi doesn’t formally endorse the impeachment of both Bush and Cheney, then she (Sheehan) will announce her candidacy to challenge Speaker Nancy Pelosi to represent the 8th District of California. So far, she hasn’t followed through with the threat…

Wow! It’s almost as if Sheehan thinks that she is the head of her own political party! In fact, her comments were so out of line that one of America’s leading left-wing blogs (The Daily Kos) actually banned her from posting any further on their website. Their words to Sheehan: “Sadly, and respectfully, it’s you who have changed, not us…” and continued by stating that “[we] can’t support your misguided effort here - and in particular after [we] see the superiority and condescension of your statement today.”


Sheehan apparently offered her ‘resignation’ from Kos in a statement which you can read here:

Now, here’s why Pelosi won’t formally call for the impeachment that Sheehan so desperately wants. Sometimes people forget that, as Speaker of the House, Pelosi is third in line for the oval office… If Bush and Cheney were impeached and ultimately removed from office, Pelosi would technically be President of the United States of America and, quite arguably, the most powerful woman in the world! Calling for impeachment would only show that Pelosi is power-hungry and, therefore, she would become the laughingstock of every late night TV show, not to mention the focus of almost every political blog in America. Even the liberal media would have a heyday with this one!

Pelosi is smarter than this (it took every fiber of my soul NOT to insert an intelligence joke here…). She knows that she can’t call for impeachment by herself, but rather that she should be the absolute LAST one to join the parade. Unfortunately for her, by the time the liberals in power get their act together, Bush’s term will be up anyway.

Trust me, Pelosi won’t call for impeachment. So you can all stop calling for it.

Recent E-mails...

on Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Lately I have received several e-mails from people asking that I write about the following topics:

Gasoline prices. Done (weeks ago, I might add). Click here -

Immigration. Also done (2 postings actually). Here are the links -

Global Warming. Yet again, it's already been done. Read here -

A few more things I'd like to add on global warming (but be sure to read the original post first):

Just yesterday, Argentina experienced the first snowfall it's received since 1918. While driving home from work, I switched over to a radio NPR affiliate (for fun, I guess) and heard a man say that this proves global warming.


Since when does record snowfall prove that the earth is getting warmer?! I love how liberals use any sort of temperature change to defend global warming. If it gets hot, it must mean global warming. If it gets cold, it must mean global warming. If it rains... yada yada yada. The NPR caller continued in his uninformed tirade saying that the current warm weather proves that we (humans) are causing global warming... Guess what, caller, you know what the recent warm weather proves? - it proves that it's SUMMER! It gets hot in July, people...

One of the aforementioned e-mails I received came from some paranoid soul stating that global warming will cause Greenland to melt, which will flood the entire earth, destroying all civilization. Well it just so happens that a report issued from NASA just a few days ago showed DNA and satellite evidence confirming that, buried beneath Greenland's two-kilometer-thick ice sheet, lay the remains of a once warm climate. The report shows findings of "trees, plants and insects of a boreal forest estimated to be between 450,000 and 800,000 years old" (which is a relatively recent era in terms of scientific dating). NASA also stated that, at this point, the ocean was, in fact, several meters higher than it is now - proof that would debunk any 'ocean rising' theory. After all, how could Greenland be covered with vegetation and insect life if the ice now covering it was melted (which should destroy all life, right caller)? You can hang up the phone now.

In fact, as I already mentioned in my first global warming post, recent reports show that 90% of the earth's glaciers are actually expanding! See this link (and be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom):

Also, the picture at the top of this article is of a construction crane buried in the ice of Antarctica. The towers of the crane are 115 feet tall, yet you can only see the top 30 feet. That crane has only been there since the 60s and look how fast the ice has already crept up on it! And remember the orignial south pole research station?... That's buried too! You still think all of the glaciers are melting?

And just this past weekend Al Gore's Live Earth concert was, again, taking place. Interestingly, a British newspaper did some research and found some surprising details: The private jets that were used to transport Al Gore as well as the numerous scores of musicians performing at this concert, the trucks used to move the musical equipment and stages, the thousands of cars used by those who drove to attend the concert, etc... - all of these factors combined produced 250,000 tons of greenhouse gases, and that was just in one weekend by Al Gore and his cronies who were supposed to be protecting the environment! Al Gore defended this by saying that the purpose of this concert was to raise awareness. Who here had never heard of global warming until Al Gore did his concert last weekend? Anybody?

You're full of it, Al.

Pardon Me?

on Saturday, July 7, 2007

In light of all the vitriol spewing from the liberal blog-dom concerning the Scooter Libby commutation (it was not a pardon by the way, it was only a commutation – some Democrats fail to recognize that fact), I felt it would be appropriate to call out their hypocrisy by addressing Bill Clinton’s Pardongate.

Al Gore called Libby's pardon "very disappointing" and said, "I thought it was improper. He was charged with knowledge that could incriminate his bosses in the White House, which included the vice president and the president." Well, maybe you should just keep your mouth shut on "very disappointing" matters of the law, Mr. Gore, seeing as your former boss was impeached for similar White House conduct and your own son was just arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana and drugs and was allegedly caught driving 100mph when they made this arrest. Here's a free tip, Al: You don't sound very credible while trying to call out the disorder of the current administration, when your own family is in as much disarray as your former administration was. Go back to your hot-air-blowing concert tour.

As for Hillary, well she's been the laughingstock throughout this whole thing. In fact, she's been the biggest hypocrite of all in this circumstance! She has joined numerous Democrats in ripping Bush for his decision and has said that "this particular action by the president is one more piece of evidence in their ongoing disregard for the rule of law that they think they don't have to answer to."


Mrs. Clinton, was not Libby’s offense very similar to Bill’s own criminal conviction? "Disregard for the law," you say?... Let's not forget that your husband appeared on live television and lied to the American public under oath... Disregard for the law?... What a crock! In fact, didn't your husband pardon at least 140 criminals during his tenure as president? I guess it was no big deal though, huh... After all, those 140 criminals only included drug dealers, tax evaders, money launderers, perjurers, and embezzlers – crimes not near as serious as Libby possibly mentioning some agent's name, right? Unbelievable.

In fact, for fun, let’s review a few of those your husband pardoned. The following is not necessarily in chronological order:

1) Marc Rich – This is probably the most popular of all of Clinton’s pardons. Marc Rich was a supporter of the Democratic Party and worked as an international commodities trader. In the mid-80s, after being chased by authorities, he fled the United States to live in Switzerland while being prosecuted on charges of tax evasion and making illegal oil deals with Iran during the hostage crisis.

Side note:
**Some liberals will argue that a portion of his headquarters was in Switzerland and he was simply returning there for business needs. What a pathetic argument - if that were the case, why did he refuse to return to the U.S. following the indictment? After all, wasn't he on the FBI's most wanted list for several years during his 'vacation' in Switzerland? Don't waste my time trying to say he wasn't running.**

Another side note:
**Many liberals dodge answering the above question by heading off on some tangent that Scooter Libby was actually Rich's lawyer (who, in fact, publicly criticized Rich for his Iran dealings, even while serving as his lawyer) and that Rudy Guiliani pursued RICO charges against Rich during all of this... So??? Did Libby run to Switzerland to avoid paying millions in taxes? Did Guiliani make the FBI's most wanted list and make illegal oil deals with Iran? No matter how you look at it, RICH was the one who broke the law - don't try to blame it on Libby or Rudy. This liberal 'argument' showcases a typical example of the liberal logical fallacy of "distraction from the actual question."**

Continuing on...
Based on all this about Marc Rich, why would Clinton pardon such a man who participated in illegal dealings and who even went on the lam to avoid paying hundreds of millions in past-due taxes and fines (which he was ultimately forced by the IRS to pay)? Well it just so happens that the not-so-conservative editor in chief of the Washington Post reported that Rich's wife, Denise Richards, raised $1 million dollars for the Democratic Party, contributed $10,000 to the Clinton’s legal defense fund, and even gave Hillary $7,300 worth of tables, chairs, pots, pans, and maybe even a mop for the new house. Well now, it turns out you can BUY your way out of tax fraud if you give the president a few bucks and his wife some new pots. Also, while in Switzerland, Marc Rich ditched his wife Denise (even though she helped bail him out of this mess) to marry a hot new blond model. Doesn’t karma suck?

Yet another random side note on Hillary's pots and pans:
**Hillary once admitted that she doesn’t cook and even offered her distaste for stay-at-home moms when she insulted them by saying, "I've done the best I can to lead my life ... You know, I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was fulfill my profession". Ouch.**

2) FALN – In late 1999, President Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of FALN, which was a violent Puerto Rican nationalist group that set off 120 bombs in the United States (how nice of them). They were also convicted for conspiracies to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as for firearms and explosives violations. They were all sentenced to terms up to 105 years (with the lowest being 35 years) for various counts and charges (oddly, none of the 16 were convicted of bombings for any crime which injured another person). Congress, however, recognizes that the FALN is responsible for "6 deaths and the permanent maiming of dozens of others, including law enforcement officials." Clinton ultimately offered these individuals clemency which was bitterly opposed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and criticized by many including former victims of FALN terrorist activities, the Fraternal Order of Police, and members of Congress. In fact, Congress condemned Clinton's actions with a vote of 95-2 in the Senate and 311-41 in the House. Too bad Clinton wasn't in the oval office to pardon Bin Laden for bombing New York, the same crime he let the FALN off the hook for.

3) Almon Glenn Braswell – This man was pardoned of his mail fraud and perjury convictions, DURING a federal investigation was which was currently underway regarding his additional money laundering and tax evasion charges. It is reported that Braswell paid approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency. It is also reported that Hugh Rodham returned the payments after he got caught. When questioned about his money dealings, Braswell would only invoke the 5th amendment.

4) Edgar and Vonna Jo Gregory – These two lovely individuals were convicted and served hard time for a bank fraud conviction in 1982. Hillary's other brother, Tony Rodham (not the same brother listed above), was an acquaintance of the Gregorys, and had lobbied Clinton on their behalf. In October of 2006, the U.S. Justice Department was asked to file an investigation, alleging that Rodham had received $107,000 from the Gregorys for the pardons, in the form of loans that were never repaid, as part of a quid pro quo scheme. Scandalous...

5) William Arthur Borders Jr. – This man was pardoned for "conspiracy to corruptly solicit and accept money in return for influencing the official acts of a federal district court judge (Alcee L. Hastings), and to defraud the United States in connection with the performance of lawful government functions; corruptly influencing, obstructing, impeding and endeavoring to influence, obstruct and impede the due administration of justice, and aiding and abetting therein; traveling interstate with intent to commit bribery" He later went to jail for refusing to testify in the impeachment proceedings, that is, until Clinton pardoned him.

One final interesting side note:
**Let’s look more closely at this Alcee Hastings character. Mr. Hastings is an impeached and removed federal judge and is currently a member of the House of Representatives (Florida). A Democrat, Hastings was first a lawyer, then a judge of both the circuit court of Broward County, Florida, and as a judge for the Southern District of Florida...until he was impeached and removed from office for corruption and perjury. (He is only the 6th federal judge in history to be removed from office by the Senate.) What happened?... Well, in 1981, Hastings was charged with accepting a $150,000 bribe in exchange for a lenient sentence and a return of seized assets for 21 counts of racketeering by Frank and Thomas Romano, and of perjury in his testimony about the case. What an honest guy! In 1988, Hastings was officially impeached by a vote of 413-3. Some of those to vote for the impeachment included Nancy Pelosi, John Conyers, Charles Rangel, and Steny Hoyer (random fact for all you left wingers). Now here’s the interesting part. Part of the Democrat’s campaign to win back the house and senate was to defeat the so-called Republican "culture of corruption." But last year, Nancy Pelosi announced that the head of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence might be no other than...Alcee Hastings, the very man she voted to impeach for corruptness several years earlier! See how the Democrats are all talk? They campaign how they will eliminate the Republican "culture of corruption" and then they offer a corrupt, impeached judge to be the head of a committee. Disgraceful**

So to sum up, let’s take a look at the scoreboard:

Controversial pardons and commutations:

G. W. Bush: 1 - - - - - Clinton: Higher than most liberals can count

More on Illegal Immigration

on Thursday, July 5, 2007

Take a look at these pictures. I almost want to cry. Here you see a group of students hoisting the Mexican flag over the American flag, which they have hung upside-down. This demonstration took place at Montebello High School in California last year.

**Before I move on, I want to clarify (because anonymous people have made comments on my blog accusing me of not verifying my facts, when in actuality, I do more verification than any other blog I have ever come across – let this prove that...) that this was NOT done by students at Montebello High. In fact, students at this school were on lockdown and remained in their classrooms as group of students from another school district estimated close to 1,000 marched onto their campus and performed this protest.**

When you saw these pictures, was the first thing that entered your head, “Gee, these people love clearly love America and want to become Americans themselves”… cuz I sure wasn’t impressed with that thought. In fact, these photos remind me of pictures we’ve all seen showing Islamic fascists burning and desecrating the American flag. How disgraceful. Recently I received several e-mails, each of them detailing an analogy of what illegal immigration truly is. Normally, I try diligently to not post things I receive in e-mails, but I felt that this was appropriate to post. I have slightly edited the original text below to remove redundancy. Here it is:

Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, prohibit them from staying indefinitely.

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests. Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.

But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors and mowed the lawn. I've done all the things you don't like to do, and because of that single fact, you have to let me stay.”

According to the protesters:

You are Required to let me stay in your house
You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan, though I will contribute none
You are Required to educate my children
You are Required to provide endless benefits to me & to my family
You are Required to pay me Medicare and Social Security, even though I don’t pay taxes and I don’t contribute to either of these funds

And if you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my ‘right’ to be there.

It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house!!!

And I will continue to protest my ‘right’ and I will continue to live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior. (Even though I shouldn’t be there in the first place!)

Oh yeah, one last thing, I DEMAND that you learn Spanish so that you can communicate with me. I also require that you celebrate our national holidays and allow me to march your streets carrying a Mexican flag.
(End of text)

Well said.

In a seperate immigration posting below that I typed a few weeks ago
a man named Eric made the following comment (in red) in which I have interjected my own thoughts (my thoughts are in italics):

Although many valid points you make, I have to add a few points. (Sorry Eric, but your arguments are some of the weakest I’ve ever heard, which I will soon show.) These illegal immigrants are just trying to do what all of our ancestors have done. I'm sure if the Native Americans had a legal system we all would have arrived here illegally. (But they DIDN’T have laws back then, did they? We did not immigrate her 'illegally' several hundred years ago because there were no laws to break at that time - now there ARE laws and that currently makes it illegal.) Unfortunately most of them cannot immigrate legally because they don't have enough money. (Just because they don't have enough money to do it the legal way doesn't mean that they get a free pass to do whatever they want. Does that mean that I can walk into the store and break the law by stealing anything I want and then argue that I should be allowed to keep the stolen goods simply because I don’t have enough money to pay for them?.. cuz Eric, that's what you're saying.) If all illegal immigrants were kicked out, what would happen to our farms? Sorry to say it, but they are the only ones willing to work in the fields. Our economy would hurt in those regards. (Pedro can still work on the farm if he's a true legal citizen; Illegals aren't the only ones who will do (or who are currently doing) ‘dirty’ jobs. There are thousands of Mexicans who work in kitchens and mow lawns and work in fields - and they're all here legally with the proper documentation! In fact, it's required by law that ALL workers require documentation. So technically, Pedro shouldn't even be working on the farm in the first place if he is here illegally.) What we need to do is give them incentive to PAY taxes since they are going to be here no matter what. (Incentive to pay taxes?? Taxes will provide you free health care and retirement benefits. Taxes will provide police for your streets and education your children? Taxes will pay soldiers to protect your freedoms? The list goes on and on... Does anyone ‘need’ any more incentive to pay taxes?? Fact is, they just don’t WANT to pay taxes – they have all the incentives they need, but they are simply freeloaders.) Me personally, I like that we have such a diverse country with people speaking all sorts of languages and sharing all sorts of cultures. (I agree with you, Eric - except for the language part. In America we speak English. Also, maybe you never finished reading my original posting below – I have nothing against immigration. In fact, I am the product of immigration as I have mentioned earlier. But do it LEGALLY!!! Somebody please tell me, why is that too much to ask?)
