Politicians Want Gun Buyers Checked, Not Illegal Aliens

By Jeff Johnson

(CNSNews.com) - Dozens of U.S. House members who sponsored the nationwide instant background check system for gun buyers in 1993 or backed the expansion of that system in 2002, have shown no support for a similar database intended to identify illegal aliens trying to find work in the U.S.

At least one member who supported the gun control measure is challenging the proposal to crack down on illegal immigrants.

"A database this large is likely to contain many errors," said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) during a May 12 hearing on the Illegal Immigration Enforcement and Social Security Protection Act (H.R. 98). "Any one of [the errors] could render someone unemployable and possibly much worse until they can get their file straightened out."

But in 2002, Jackson Lee argued for the "Our Lady of Peace Act," (H.R. 4757), an expansion of the National Instant Check System (NICS) for handgun purchases.

"I strongly support this legislation," Jackson Lee said during the Oct. 15, 2002 consideration of the Our Lady of Peace Act. "A major problem with the instant check system has been the incomplete records of state and local governments."

The legislation to expand NICS would have provided "incentives for states to provide more complete records to the federal government. This will result in faster and smarter background checks," she argued.
Of course they do, and no I do not think it is about tracking illegals. When the laws were first passed, in 1986, requiring that we Americans show proof to work, I nearly lost my job because I refused to do it. My GM was a retired Marine who knew my background and let me slide. Later, when I worked for a large corporation, I never turned the paperwork in either and they never came back to me about it the entire time I worked for them (a few years).

The article further states:
The most recent research available indicates that more than one-quarter of the immigrants living in the United States are doing so illegally. Of the 37.5 million foreign-born individuals currently living in the U.S., demographer Jeffrey Passell of the Pew Hispanic Center has determined that 10.3 million, or 29 percent, either entered or remain in the country illegally. Passell combined previous research he had conducted with the March 2004 "Current Population Study" conducted by the Census Bureau and data from other federal agencies to arrive at his conclusions.

At a May 12 hearing of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims, Chairman John Hostettler (R-Ind.) argued that border enforcement alone would fail to stop millions more non-citizens from illegally crossing U.S. borders.

"We will only be able to assert control over illegal immigration when we can turn off the job magnet that draws most illegal aliens to our country," he said.
So, nearly thirty (30) percent, or ten million, "entered or remain" here illegally. Of those ten million, just how many are those staying beyond their visa limits and I ask what about the database that has those people on file who were supposed to leave? Is there not already a method to check and see when, or if they leave? Visas do have an expiration date and the paperwork has to be logged in some electronic form, do they not?

The answer of course is to throw more money down a government pit that has already shown that it cannot even find those that stay beyond their visas, and create another database of illegals- but how? If they snuck across the border illegally do we honestly think that they do not have, cannot acquire, or even care that they have government papers?

From today's Washington Times Inside the Beltway column:
Military response

We'd written in our previous column about an offensive sign out in front of Casa Furniture in Alexandria, which we suspected might lure undocumented aliens to the store to buy a new sofa or mattress.

"Credito Sin Papele sde Gringos," the misspelled sign read.

Translation: "Credit Without Gringos' Papers."

Several hours after our item appeared, Air Force Capt. Peter Sheeran drove past the store and noted that the sign's message had been removed.

"But it's good they changed it," he says. "I was seriously contemplating going in there in full uniform and raising a stink with the manager, or whoever else was there."

All databases created by the ferals will always bite we citizens in the ass (just ask Ted Kennedy or anyone else on the NO-FLY list) as these tools are designed and intended to.

No my paranoid readers, just I as I did not support the Insta-Check bullshit, I do think anyone should be so quick as to embrace an "illegals database".

Oh, and the hypocrite and idiot, Shelia Jackson Lee displayed once again what a hypocrite and idiot she really is...


Male-targeted ads found to be in no man's land

Or, how pussies like Tom Bernardin think:
By Jeffrey Goldfarb
Fri Jun 24,12:53 PM ET

The Marlboro Man is having an identity crisis.

The Leo Burnett advertising agency, which created the iconic macho cowboy, said a new study it conducted found that half the men in most parts of the world don't know what is expected of them in society and three-quarters of them think images of men in advertising are out of touch with reality.

Most ads have lumped men into one of two groups -- the soft, caring type known as "metrosexuals," who are comfortable with facial peels and pink shirts, or the stereotypical "retrosexuals," who remain oafishly addicted to beer and sports.
Read the last part of that last paragraph once more:
"...who remain oafishly addicted to beer and sports."
Now, read what the pussy Tom Bernardin has to say:
"As the world is drifting toward a more feminine perspective, many of the social constructs men have taken for granted are undergoing significant shifts or being outright dismantled," said Tom Bernardin, chairman and chief executive of Leo Burnett Worldwide.
This morning, while working on a system, I made the time to call The Leo Burnett advertising agency. I first reached a woman telephone operator, to whom I explained the reason for my call, and she had a good laugh when I asked if Tom Bernardin's leg's joined at the top and forwarded me to consumer affairs, where the lady who answered burst out laughing when I asked the question again. She then sent me to public affairs where I was answered by a rather feminine voice mail, but the name was definitely male. I then left a message stating that if Tom Bernardin's legs did not join at the top, and he was in wanting a sex-change operation, to go right ahead, but to quit insulting the rest of the men in the world. Statement's made, just like the pussy Tom Bernardin's, just piss me off, and for too long men have let them slide. I say no more and stand up and speak your mind and tell them exactly what you think of them.

Oh, and one last bit of advice for Tom Bernardin, even if you do not get that sex change Tom, you go right ahead and get that Carmen Electra Butt Wax:
Speaking of marriage, what makes a great butt?

Genetics. A good ass should be nice and round and firm. I think waxing is dope. There's a place I go called Pink Cheeks and it has this thing called Playboy Wax. It's amazing. I walk in, take my underwear off and lay down on a table. I do a position from ballet where I raise my foot and put it on the inside of my knee. The woman waxes me - she's incredible. I turn around, I get on my hands and knees and she waxes my ass. There's nothing like getting waxed, I'm telling you. Waxing adds to sex 110 per cent. I get a better sensation when I'm having sex or doing anything. I think if a man had his woman do it for him, it could be fun. And I would love to wax my man. I think it could be very erotic. Some people like pain and would probably be really into that. I can actually have an orgasm from wearing tight jeans and driving a car. There's no hair, so I'm completely sensitive.
Just keep it under your skirt...

The Annual Eric Blair Birthday Wish

As I said last year, for the man who brought us Winston Smith's terror of 1984 along with Napoleon and his Animal Farm- Whose Paranoid wishes you a happy and hardy birthday George Orwell.

And for everyone else, here is the link to the 1984 Windows Theme- I have had it for ages.

Oh, and I still hope you are not rotting in hell you Socialist Bastard!


Observations II

The commenting feature has been fixed.

When I first tried to use the old code, it did not work, so then I tried the auto-installer, and that did not work. I then went and grabbed the new code, but did not follow the directions properly and of course that did not work. So I followed the directions provided in the forum and, of course, that did not work either.

I went back to the old code- and it worked...

IRS probing possible data security breaches

Jun 24, 4:36 PM (ET)
By Caroline Drees, Security Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Internal Revenue Service is investigating whether unauthorized people gained access to sensitive taxpayer and bank account information but has not yet exposed any privacy breaches, an official said on Friday.

The U.S. tax agency -- whose databases include suspicious activity reports from banks about possible terrorist or criminal transactions -- launched the probe after the Government Accountability Office said in April that the IRS "routinely permitted excessive access" to the computer files.

The GAO team was able to tap into the data without authorization, and gleaned information such as bank account holders' names, social security numbers, transaction values, and any suspected terrorist activity. It said the data was at serious risk of disclosure, modification or destruction.

"There is no evidence that anyone who was not authorized accessed the data outside the GAO," said Sheri James, a spokeswoman for the Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), which is working with the IRS to address the concerns of the GAO, the investigative arm of Congress.
Horseshit- plain and simple horseshit!

If there is one database that the govenrment runs that everyone should understand is tapped and abused frequently, it is our records with the IRS.

We now that it has be abused for political payback and I suspect to something as mundane as checking out some woman that was fancied.

Now, the real question that should be asked, is why now does this information, and the others that have been revealed over the past year, become public?

It takes a bit of time to get the sales results from advertising, and I must ask this, are you ready to buy the new ID that is coming?



For some reason that I cannot fathom (another in the last twenty-four hours), if you post a comment in the Observations, that comment is in every post Observation.

I have left a request in the forums at Haloscan for assistance and if you feel like saying something and watch it repeat itself over and over, go right ahead- or, you can wait until this is fixed...

Supreme Court Rules Cities May Seize Homes

I want to point rat-faced Justices Souter, Ginsburg, Breyer, Kennedy, and John Paul Stevens (who is unworthy of his Christian Name) to the true founding document of this nation- The Declaration of Independence and in particular the following clauses:
  • For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
  • For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
And, the Fifth Amendment:
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
Now that you have read this, please print out copies for yourselves and read them over and over again- WAIT! What am I thinking!

You already have copies and wiped your traitorous asses with them today with this decision:
WASHINGTON (AP) - A divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday that local governments may seize people's homes and businesses against their will for private development in a decision anxiously awaited in communities where economic growth often is at war with individual property rights.
I wish to remind the readers that our form of government was founded on four boxes...

The War on Guns

I have been very busy as of late and hope to post more this weekend, and until then try David Codrea's Blog. It is well worth the read and his blog has been added under Blog Links (on the right hand side then simply scroll down).


19 June, 2005

Found while searching for something else.

From the top of the page (The link is now Google's Cache as the original link has been modified to say you are looking at gay porno- if you have Java tunrned on):
"Hey, my name is Matt Blanc, I work in a computer store, and I have seen some heatshrink-wrapped packages in the notebooks we repair... But it's not in all of them, it only seems like they are in the newest models from Dell, HP, and Gateway. I don't know about other brands, as I have either never seen heatshrink-wrapped packages in them, or I haven't worked on one of that brand."
And the device mentioned:
"About a month ago, I opened up my (then) almost brand new Dell 600m laptop, to replace a broken PCMCIA slot riser on the motherboard. As soon as I got the keyboard off, I noticed a small cable running from the keyboard connection underneath a piece of metal protecting the motherboard. I didn't really think too much of it and I'm not intimately familiar with laptop hardware configurations and so I assumed that it served some purpose and that it was best not to mess with it. I continued to disassemble the laptop, and after popping off the metal panels protecting the motherboard, I noticed that the mystery wire had a large bulge covered in heat-shrink tubing. I continued with the task at hand."
Oh, and do not believe everything you read, particularly when it is from someone named Matt Blanc and the website is hosted by GNAUK- have fun...

Animal (Actually Homosexual) Planet

Tonight, I was making myself a sandwich for supper, and the Paranoid Girls were watching Animal Planet- Who Gets the Dog. In the sidewise thinking I do quite often, I thought fine, no problem for my girls to watch as I layered a piece of cheese on my chicken. The announcer introduced a girl, a family, and then the "easy going life partners".


My mind kicked down into third gear and up came my eyes to see two easy going life partner "bears". I grabbed the remote, changed the channel to Boomerang, and finished preparing my meal.

Afterwards, I went back to my system to do some research on this show, and what do I find, but who got the dog- Hugs? Well, Julie and Mary who renamed him the Edgar Winter Dog because:
"Edgar was given a new name because Julie and Mary didn't feel Hugs was macho enough for a boy dog and because Hugs lacks lap-dog tendencies."
Now, I do not know if Julie or Mary are lesbians, and that is their business, but it is inferred on the same page as why Hug's name was changed:
"Julie and Mary have to make sure one of them can come directly home after work to walk Hugs and spend some time with him. It's a commitment and an adjustment to their schedules, but definitely worth it."
Now, some of you are probably wondering why I posted about this, and quite simply, to point out you cannot trust anything on the tube- at all, even Homosexual Planet from attempting to push their political agenda, yes, down your throat.

The episode in question will air again tonight at 23:00EDT, and again tomorrow morning at 03:00EDT- if you just have to see the bears...



Last week, I read this letter, which I found via Claire Wolfe's Blog.

The letter is addressed to Bill Lockyer, and CC'd to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Dunn, Don Perata, and the NRA and states in the last two paragraphs:
"There are many reasons to dislike SB 357. In the unlikely event that ammunition makers could meet the requirements of the bill, the cost of ammunition would skyrocket. More importantly, we were appalled by the caviler manner in which you, California?s Chief Law Officer, and Senator Dunn described your willingness to confiscate legally owned private property and make criminals of its owners. As you have defined "handgun ammunition", millions of owners would be put at risk and the amount of lawfully owned ammunition subject to confiscation could easily surpass one billion rounds.

It is with deep regret that the officers of FSC have been moved to take this action. We sincerely appreciate the role that law enforcement provides to our society in keeping all of us safe. However, we will oppose, to any extent necessary, your attempts to deny us the ability to enjoy our sport. Any of your employees who are members of the FSC are welcome to use the SVSC provided that such use does not occur while they are on duty for the Department of Justice."
One must read the entire letter to appreciate exactly what this club has done, and just like Ronnie Barrett, they are standing their ground- unlike Slut & Wussy, who it seems, still cannot, even though this company is now back in the hands of Americans, stand their ground just as as they did with the Clinton HUD Sellout.

Last April, the Commiefornia DOJ issued letters to four thousand, three hundred and twenty people (4,320), which states that the Slut & Wussy/Walther P22 .22 rimfire pistol is now an Assault Weapon because of it's threaded barrel. Never mind that in 2002, the Commiefornia DOJ placed the P22 .22 rimfire pistol on the approved for sale list. In fact, if you browse the Web Archive further, you will see that up until October 22nd, 2004, and download ALLMAKES.PDF it is dated 24-Mar-2003 with a size of 1.5MB.

If I were Michael F. Golden, President and CEO of Slut & Wussy Holding, I would tell Bill Lockyer to kiss my ass, I am pulling ALL firearms from Commiefornia that my company sells, will not honor any warranty to any Commiefornia government agency, firearms that it's personnel use and I would see his traitorous ass, the Commiefornia DOJ and each employee involved with this action, and the state of Commiefornia in court for the largest RICO civil suit ever. Further, the company attorney's would be demanding all criminal charges possible be brought against the same.

Of course, I doubt if he has the balls to do it, because we sure have not heard jack-shit about this up until today. (Oh, and of course, you can still rely on the NRA not to do a thing about this either.)

Fucking pussies- the entire lot of them!

FBI San Diego, Drug Investigations and 9/11

I just read an interesting post to the Full-Disclosure mailing list. This E-mail list is best described by the About Full Disclourse statement at the top of the subscription page:
"Unlike Bugtraq, this list serves no-one except the list members themselves. We don't believe in security by obscurity, and as far as we know, full disclosure is the only way to ensure that everyone, not just the insiders, have access to the information we need to survive. We will try to operate this list without moderation, as we feel moderation is an impediment to communication." - Len Rose, July 2002.
This is a very good place to start if your are new to security related issues pertaining to computers, just do not panic when reading it.

This mornings list contained a new thread, which can be read in entirety here, and it is worth the read, that is a response letter to Kelly Thorton, whose article in the San Diego Tribune, can be read from the link in the letter, by Jason Coombs:
FBI San Diego, Drug Investigations and 9/11

"Hello, Kelly.

I'm writing in response to your article from today in the San Diego Union-Tribune:

San Diego FBI Officials Call 9/11 Criticism 'Dead Horse'

I work as an expert witness in civil and criminal court cases involving computer forensics and information security.

In 2003 I became involved as expert witness on behalf of a defendant in a Federal criminal drug prosecution case in San Diego county.

In the course of the law enforcement investigation, which occurred prior to the PATRIOT Act, the FBI computer forensics lab in San Diego assisted the DEA with Internet wiretaps of the suspects' computers, possibly in violation of wiretap laws, which at the time had no reference to Internet type data communications electronic intercepts.

The defendant was tried and convicted, and the case is now pending appeal.

During my review of the case on behalf of the defendant, I was shocked to see how far and how long law enforcement allowed the suspects to operate their drug operation in San Diego.

Instead of arresting the suspects when the FBI and DEA had conclusive proof of crimes, law enforcement seems to have toyed with the suspects, dragging out the investigation and making it absurdly complicated and costly. Law enforcement had proof sufficient to convict several months before the first drug sale occurred in the case, and they sat and watched, as though they were more interested in playing with their shiny new computer surveillance toys than in putting an end to the drug crimes in progress so they could move on to more important things, like the terrorists known to the CIA to be inside our country, who by coincidence lived virtually next-door to these drug offenders in San Diego."
I rather doubt that we will read more of this in other venues, and I have yet to research this myself, but find it compelling enough, from my experience, to wish to follow it further.

UltraMag 50 Update

Well, my friend just called me with "bad news"- Safety Harbor had called him earlier this afternoon and asked him to check the dimensions on the muzzle break. It seems that one of the break's fins broke after fifteen rounds on one of the rifles and the good folks at SH are contacting owners to have them check the specs on UM50's already delivered. His was one of the ones in question, so SH offered to either ship him a new break, which is actually a new design, so he could put it on, or they would pay for a round-trip ticket and do it. SH heats the threads and the break before it being screwed on, and he thinks it wisest to return it- I agree.

This of course will delay our second range trip, of course, but as soon as we can get out after the UM50 returns, I will post the promised images, sound and video files.

The UltraMag 50 Range Report

Since we did not have time to run to the ranch, we made it to the closest outdoor range we both belonged to about 09:00 Friday morning and there were men on the 200-meter and 200-yard lanes (the farthest distances at this particular range). There were also shooters on the pistol course, which left us with the 100-yard range.

We quickly unloaded the vehicles with our implements of fun, and since the bipod was not in yet, we used the same stand as in the first pictures posted of the UM50. I want to note here that the only pictures of the range time that I already posted will be the only ones available at this time as those four pictures are the only ones that meet the obscurity test. The next session will have video and stills.

The scope was mounted and the ammo can was opened. The ammo used was .50 caliber M9 Linked Blue Tip Ammo, which he purchased from Sportsman?s Guide. We were not concerned with it being incendiary as the backstop was a large dirt mound that is at least forty-five (45) feet deep and thirty-feet (30) high and the targets were simply paper, wood, and a very large chunks of concrete. In fact, the only paper targets we had brought with us were NRA Official 100 meter small bore rifle targets, and would work perfectly for the days needs.

When it was time to fire my friend graciously allowed me the first pull and I did not say no (actually, I think he wanted to gauge the recoil). I set the scope reticule dead center on the target 100 yards away, breathed slowly and squeezed.

Hot Damn! What a rush! My round hit about a half-inch (½) high horizontal, but seven (7) inches to the left of dead center. There is no missing the hit round through the scope at all, and perceived recoil was not much more than a magnum 12 Gauge load- I was in love.

We walked down to examine the target and decided upon adjustments, and upon our return to the bench, the owner sat himself behind, grasped the rifle firmly, rotated the dials on the knobs the requisite turns and squeezed. His expectations were dashed, but only shortly as the round had not fired. We waited sixty-seconds; he checked the round, reloaded it, aimed and fired. He was now in love, even though we had over estimated the adjustments.

To ensure that we had over compensated, it was my turn again and the round fired was a half off of his. The scope was on we thought. We then tested three more rounds each, between answering questions from other shooters who had wandered by, over the next ninety-minutes. During this same period, and unbeknownst to me, he had brought along another toy for us to play with and that was the suppressor for his Colt .45, and surprised me with simply handing it to me and saying: "Have fun."

We did, but the only .45 ammo on hand was three years old and would not reliably feed through the pistol, suppressed or not- we went through all fifty rounds he had to be sure.

It was nearing eleven o?clock in the morning and we were getting hungry, so we each decided to fire off one more round through the UM50. We walked down and setup a 4x4 chunk of fence post and braced it with a chunk concrete. Upon return, I aimed dead center of that 4x4, fired, and then heard nothing but laughter and the question: "Did you see that thing exploded?"

Actually, I had not, as was concentrating on my target so we walked back down to see if I had missed the 4x4 and found out that I had not. My aim was true, and the round had gone right through and exploded the chunk of concrete used as a brace.

We set things up again, but used a larger piece of concrete this time.

Upon returning to the bench, my friend slid quickly behind the rifle, aimed and squeezed. It was so much fun that we almost decided to post the video of it, but again, the video does not meet the obscurity test, so we will just have to repeat that test for you the next time.

We then walked back down to clean up our mess, and looked closely at the hill of dirt behind our targets. Channels two feet deep were exploded out of the hill from the twelve rounds we had fired and looked quite funny.

We headed back, cleaned our area and loaded the vehicles. We called a mutual friend and invited him to lunch so that he could watch the videos and see the stills. We met at him and though we both had huge grins on our faces, I will confess that mine was the largest.

As I am writing this, I am staring, and occasionally smelling, the first spent round that was put through the rifle since leaving Safety Harbor and I am still grinning from ear to ear. The Paranoid Family all had a great time watching the videos and laughing at my smiling face so much, that the stills were added to the MCE system (See MCE Box posting).

We do not think that we will be able to make it back out for at least three weeks due to our schedules, but when we do, I will post stills, video and sound of the event, and if you can find a way to purchase yourself a BMG .50 caliber rifle- do so as soon as possible, as you do not know the fun you are missing.

Thank you Ronnie Barrett and the many others for pioneering this sport!
