"Chairman slams immigration bill opponents,"

Chairman slams immigration bill opponents, challenges them to act

AP Hispanic Affairs Writer

The Chairman of the Republican Party on Friday lambasted Democrats and Republicans who helped kill an immigration bill in the Senate and challenged them to come up with a solution beyond "just build a fence along the border."

"The voices of negativity now have a responsibility to come up with an answer," RNC Chairman and U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla. said.

"How will you fix the situation to make peoples' lives better? How will you continue to grow the economy? How will we bring people out of the shadows for our national security and for the sake of being a country that is just?" he demanded.

I have a suggestion Mel, read this and then obey your sworn Oath of Office!

The paragraph below is from the San Francisco Gate:

Video raises concern about firms' H-1B abuses
2 lawmakers urge labor secretary to probe 'blatant disregard for American workers'

Tom Abate, Chronicle Staff Writer
Friday, June 22, 2007

Hoffman sought to turn the video -- created by an H-1B opponent -- to his advantage. He said it proved the need to pass the Senate immigration reform legislation that, among many other things, gives Silicon Valley more H-1B workers while beefing up rules to make sure that U.S. workers are not displaced.

"The anti-fraud provisions in the Senate bill go right to the heart of what this video is about,'' Hoffman said.
This, of course is spin (actually bullshit as it is known in the English language) and some would admire his tenacity in being able to hold a straight face saying such, but I do not, nevertheless, one thing he IS correct about is that is about wetbacks from every nation wanting the jobs that Americans will do. Spend some time reading the want ads, Craiglist, and many other sources for employment for programming jobs to see for yourself, but most of you already know this as you may know many folks in the tech field. However, this is NOT just about tech jobs, Cohen & Grigsby did these united States a favor when they put the video as this is about all jobs here.

I think every employer should be able to hire and fire whomever he chooses and with that said, I also firmly think his first duty is to his local community, then his state, and then his country as, in that order, is where he made his money and if he wants to continue to enjoy the benefits of his community, and particularly this nation that made it possible for him to do so, then Nobleese Oblige is due- not the spittle that most corporations provide today (and the lawyers that help them do so).

More on Cohen & Grigsby 2

It seems Cohen & Grigsby have been scouring the web for articles and comments about themselves, and in perusing my stats once more, I came across this article at the Des Moines Register linked in the title:
Video tells ways to avoid hiring U.S. workers

June 23, 2007

Washington, D.C. — A video that shows members of a law firm advising employers on how they can avoid hiring U.S. workers has sparked a firestorm of Internet criticism and a congressional investigation by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Ia.

The video, seen by thousands of viewers on YouTube, feeds into a churning debate in Washington and across the country over immigration and the role of foreign workers in the U.S. economy.

Grassley says H-1B visas issued to skilled workers brought from overseas are being used to deprive Americans of high-tech jobs and drive down wages.

The visas are supposed to be given only when American workers are not available, but Grassley contends the program is rife with fraud and abuse.
Now, article is a good one, but the following statement had me laughing until my sides hurt:
A public relations consultant for Cohen & Grigsby released a statement that says the firm has a responsibility to ensure that clients are aware of all laws affecting employment of international workers.

"To that point, we stand by the substance of our recent Immigration Law Update Seminar. We regret the choice of words that was used during a small segment of the seminar," said the statement.

"It is unfortunate that these statements have been commandeered and misused, which runs contrary to our intent."
Sure C&G, sure...

RIP: Bob Evans

In my travels, I have had the pleasure of eating at Bob Evans restaurants and have purchased his sausage many times when I could find a place to do so. In fact, just two weeks ago, I was praising his name and products to some friends, but today, I just have to say thank you sir, your biscuits and gravy are just mighty tasty.

If ever up in the Midwest area that has his restaurants, do yourself a favor and stop into one of them- you will know exactly what I mean.

Ramos & Compean

WASHINGTON — Pressure is growing on Capitol Hill to investigate the prosecution of two former Border Patrol agents doing prison time for their on-duty shooting of a Mexican man who was transporting drugs into the United States.
No pardon or amnesty- these men deserve to have the convictions OVERTURNED and full rights restored.

Those who screwed them deserve, in my opinion, the DEATH PENALTY, but seeing how that will not happen, they should receive LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE- especially for Johnny Sutton.

Keep up the calls, letters, faxes and E-mails.

YouTube Video On Avoiding U.S. Job Applicants

"Our goal is clearly NOT to find a qualified U.S. worker ... our objective is to get this person a green card ... so certainly we are not going to try to find a place where most applicants would be most numerous."

- Lawrence M. Lebowitz - Vice President of Marketing - Cohen & Grigsby
Remember this as corporations scream how there is NO qualified Americans to do the work and then remember the meat-packing plant where the grabbed all of the wetbacks and then 750+ American Citizens showed up to apply for the jobs.

As for Lebowitz and the firm Cohen & Grigsby- both are Anti-American in my opinion- but hey, you make up your own mind...

Ed and Elaine Brown

Ed and Elaine Brown are the current sixty-four (64) year old couple that the feds say live in a fortified compound- at least that is what the ferals are calling it and their PR Machine, the MSM (which did the exact same thing at Ruby Ridge & Waco).

However, I want you to look at this couple:

A real scary couple, aren't they? I do not think so and I doubt you do as well, but the ferals do, but then again, they think anyone is scary who stands up and questions or has the audacity to simply say NO.

For those that do not know who they are, Ed and Elaine Brown are a couple who have been charged with tax evasion. The Browns asked to be shown what law stipulates that they pay taxes, and have stated they WILL pay such, if the law will be shown to them. Nevertheless, this is not what the ferals want- nor can they do. What they want is the Brown's beaten and imprisoned so as to install fear and control over the rest of we citizens.

There are a number of great sites and blogs that detail this travesty and here are a few:
Alex Jones Prison Planet/GCN Network will be live with the Brown's Press Conference tomorrow and Randy Weaver will be there in the capacity of a freelance reporter.

Go spend the time to read up on this and if possible catch the press conference tomorrow live.

Rate Lawyers, Get Sued- Of Course

Attorneys sue site that comes up with ratings on ... lawyers

By Tricia Duryee

Seattle Times technology reporter

A lawsuit filed Thursday against Avvo.com aims directly at the Seattle startup's distinctive feature — a system of rating attorneys across the country on a scale of one to 10.

The plaintiffs, John Henry Browne and Alan Wenokur, are practicing lawyers in Seattle who called the system unfair.

They think their ratings, 5.2 and 6.5, respectively, were uncharacteristic of their experience, industry recognition and professional conduct.

The suit, which is seeking class-action status, was filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle by Steve Berman, a Seattle attorney who has handled high-profile class-action cases and is a partner at Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro.

The defendants named in the suit include Avvo and its chief executive, Mark Britton, former general counsel at Expedia.

Berman said the rating of Browne, a criminal defense attorney in Washington for 35 years, was hurt because Browne had been sanctioned by a state disciplinary authority.
Doing what lawyers do best, hide the truth...


How do you corner a house?

Feds Corner Home Of Convicted Tax Evaders
U.S. Marshals Cut Phone, Power, Internet To N.H. Couple Who Won't Report To Prison

PLAINFIELD, N.H., June 14, 2007

(CBS/AP) Federal authorities have cut phone, power and Internet service at the fortified compound of a couple convicted of tax evasion who have refused to report to prison.

It's unclear what effect that has on Ed and Elaine Brown, who have solar and wind power generators at their 110-acre spread, where they have been holed up for months.

Of course, ask the ferals to do it...


PS - Leave them alone and start looking for real enemies of the Constitution and if you do not know where to begin, I suggest starting in the swamp.

Charge a Fed for Killing an illegal but never charge them for killing uS Citizens

BREAKING NEWS: Corbett hearing postponed until August; prosecutor may turn to grand jury

By Jonathan Clark

Published on Friday, June 15, 2007
BISBEE — Cochise County Attorney Ed Rheinheimer said he may seek a grand jury indictment against Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Corbett after a judge postponed a preliminary hearing Friday meant to determine if Corbett can be charged with murdering an illegal immigrant.

Justice of the Peace David Morales granted the seven-week continuance after defense attorney Sean Chapman complained he had not received a complete set of police statements made by six Mexican nationals who were present when Corbett fatally shot Francisco Javier Dominguez-Rivera near Naco on Jan. 12. Chapman called it "fundamentally unfair" and "outrageous" that the County Attorney’s Office had not fully disclosed the statements.
The ferals do nothing to protect their own when someone is being charged with killing an illegal, but when the assassin Lon Horiuchi was charged with manslaughter, they pulled out all of the stops to make sure the trial would never happen. Certainly tells you what the government of these united States thinks of the Citizenry, and how much it cares for illegals, does it not.

New Blog Link

Darkblog- go spend some time reading.


Tell us again NRA how the deal you just screwed us with won't be abused?

The following is about a former feral who retired from the Secret Service to raise her newborn son- now 19 months of age. When flying to a family reunion from Reagen International, she had some tap water in her boy's "sippy cup" which, any astute reader by now knows is nearly the most horrible thing you could ever do. Nearly I say because most know darn good and well that the most horrible thing a citizen of these united States, even a former feral, can do is spill that water while in the presence of the currently employed uS feral:
"I demanded to speak to a TSA [Transportation Security Administration] supervisor who asked me if the water in the sippy cup was 'nursery water or other bottled water.' I explained that the sippy cup water was filtered tap water. The sippy cup was seized as my son was pointing and crying for his cup. I asked if I could drink the water to get the cup back, and was advised that I would have to leave security and come back through with an empty cup in order to retain the cup. As I was escorted out of security by TSA and a police officer, I unscrewed the cup to drink the water, which accidentally spilled because I was so upset with the situation.

At this point, I was detained against my will by the police officer and threatened to be arrested for endangering other passengers with the spilled 3 to 4 ounces of water. I was ordered to clean the water, so I got on my hands and knees while my son sat in his stroller with no shoes on since they were also screened and I had no time to put them back on his feet. I asked to call back my fiancé, who I could still see from afar, waiting for us to clear security, to watch my son while I was being detained, and the officer threatened to arrest me if I moved. So I yelled past security to get the attention of my fiancé.

I was ordered to apologize for the spilled water, and again threatened with arrest. I was threatened several times with arrest while detained, and while three other police officers were called to the scene of the mother with the 19 month old. A total of four police officers and three TSA officers reported to the scene where I was being held against my will. I was also told that I should not disrespect the officer and could be arrested for this too. I apologized to the officer and she continued to detain me despite me telling her that I would miss my flight. The officer advised me that I should have thought about this before I 'intentionally spilled the water!'"
Really pissed off right now?

You should be, but you are probably asking yourself just what this has to do with the NRA's backdoor brokered deal that even excluded notification to the Repgulicrats and passed on a VOICE VOTE and the answer is? (Bueller, Bueller, Bueller)


Now that I have that, momentarily, off my chest, please continue with your everyday reading.


SMELL (really HELL ) Computers II

Nothing like starting the day out right

Hmm, lets see:

1. Illegal, Eligio Chia-Duran, molests and paralyzes eight month old last Christmas Eve, - lawyers want evidence tossed because of 1963 Vienna Treaty. Judge says no.

2. Panties are in a wad because a newly appointed Kansas City Parks Board member, seventy-three year old Frances Semler, is a member of The Minutemen Project. Rabid anti-Americans demand her ouster. Mayor says no- so far.

3. The Anti-American asswipes in the uS Senate are working towards, again, to give this nation to Mexico, even though nearly all of the nation has said no.

4. Over in the once great Britain, Charles, Prince of Wales, has commissioned a work, entitled the BEAUTIFUL NAMES, glorifying the raghead god allah- and the place it will make it's debut is none other than Westminster Cathedral. Catholics are outraged- and of course ignored.

5. Bush and his minions are thoroughly pissed about a new bill in congress that works towards protecting free speech on the internet- including bloggers. And of course, the Bush line is that the onus of proving that posting would be or are free speech is upon the individual- not the feral government as the constitution stipulates.

Nothing like an acid build-up first thing in the morning, is there...

Mr. Wizard is Dead!

Long Live Mr. Wizard!


PS - I just ended a call to Anonymous about Mr. Wizard's passing, and just before ending the call, he said to me that he was surprised that I did not call when Charles Nelson Reilly died and I told him that I thought it best to quietly mourn his passing. He noted that game shows would never be the same, and I reminded him that they have not been the same since Paul Lynde died...

Hiding the vote

"That's what took place Wednesday when the House, by voice vote, passed a gun control bill that Rep. Dingell, D-Mich., helped broker between the NRA and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y."
CSMK made me aware of the post at AmBack and cannot say that I am surprised at the follow-up post by OldStar as many in this country will react the same or want the same power over others.

A brand spanking new database that will be perfect in conception, design, and of course implementation- HAH! If even one of you doubts for one minute that it will be abused, I point you to this article I read this morning and to give you a quick peek:
FBI Finds It Frequently Overstepped in Collecting Data

An internal FBI audit has found that the bureau potentially violated the law or agency rules more than 1,000 times while collecting data about domestic phone calls, e-mails and financial transactions in recent years, far more than was documented in a Justice Department report in March that ignited bipartisan congressional criticism.
Oh, that is enough to convince you? Then how about this one:
FBI Terror Watch List 'Out of Control'

A terrorist watch list compiled by the FBI has apparently swelled to include more than half a million names.

Privacy and civil liberties advocates say the list is growing uncontrollably, threatening its usefulness in the war on terror.

The bureau says the number of names on its terrorist watch list is classified.

A portion of the FBI's unclassified 2008 budget request posted to the Department of Justice Web site, however, refers to "the entire watch list of 509,000 names," which is utilized by its Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force.
Or better yet, how about the comment by becca:
Who cares about the inconvenience. I can barely sleep at night as it is. I am not paranoid by any means....I am a normal 31 year old female in DC and I am glad they even have a list no matter how long it is..... I believe the list just needs to evolve with the times and more man power is needed to do it. Its because of these liberals that believe we are sitting pretty and doin just fine shaking our hands with the enemies that this kind of stuff is getting news. Do you care or dont you that we are sitting ducks?

Posted by: becca | Jun 13, 2007 12:08:57 PM
Well becca, I for one am not about to rely on anyone but myself for protection and the generations raised to think that it is the responsibility of others is a major part in why this nation has fallen to depths of filth & disgust that it has.

If you cannot see exactly what the lists, databases, and records are doing to this nation, what it is founded on, and see how the documents that bind the social contract of these united States, then please, please take the advice of Samuel Adams:

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"


Freedom, not climate, is at risk

I agree with Professor Richard Lindzen from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who said: "future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age".
President Vaclav Klaus indeed understands intelligence when he reads it.


Your numbers are off Bloomberg & Schwarzenegger

"Together, the mayors pledged to enlist their 250 million constituents in the fight against global warming."

At best, asswipe Bloomberg, your constituency is around 8.2 million, and asswipe Schwarzenegger, your state population is roughly 36½ million. Moreover, what is questionable about these numbers is just how many wetbacks from all the different countries from around the world help bolster those numbers and make them false as well. Neither of you are deserving, IMO, of the positions that your constituencies elected you to, but that does not matter, as I am not one of them, and 87.3 percent of the nation is not as well (New Joke City 8.2 + Commie/Mexi-fornia 36.5 = 44.7 million or 14.9% of US 300 million [article postulated 250 million]. Estimating that 5.5 of the Commie/Mexi-fornia population and 1 million for New Joke City are illegals for a total of 6.5 million [deducting the 14.9% for both city and state] = leaves a combined constituency of roughly 12.7% of US Population.)

Asswipe Bloomberg, you are an unindicted and yet convicted RICO felon for your so called gun stings which were IN FACT straw-man purchases and asswipe Schwarzenegger you are nothing more than a sellout trying to pervert this nation- for both of you, jail is too good, but that is just my opinion.


10 June, 2007


To sign on to the deal, the powerful gun lobby won significant concessions from Democratic negotiators in weeks of painstaking talks. Individuals with minor infractions in their pasts could petition their states to have their names removed from the federal database, and about 83,000 military veterans, put into the system by the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2000 for alleged mental health reasons, would have a chance to clean their records. The federal government would be permanently barred from charging gun buyers or sellers a fee for their background checks. In addition, faulty records such as duplicative names or expunged convictions would have to be scrubbed from the database.
Government databases that could be petitioned by 83,000 vets and who knows how many countless innocent citizens? However, to not sound so negative, I ask you to join with me in laughter at the following line:
This time, Democratic leaders dispatched Dingell and Rep. Rick Boucher (Va.), a pro-gun Democrat who represents Virginia Tech's home town, Blacksburg, to reach a deal. But talks dragged on over issues of constitutionality and questions over how to institute a means to clear names from the system.
Since when did they even give two cents worth of concern about constitutionality? The ferals and the NRA wipes their asses with it daily...

Perhaps more men should Senator Bishop.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Simmering tensions in the Alabama Senate boiled over Thursday when a Republican lawmaker punched a Democratic colleague in the head before they were pulled apart.

Republican Sen. Charles Bishop claimed that Democratic Sen. Lowell Barron called him a "son of a (expletive)."

"I responded to his comment with my right hand," Bishop said.
Hmm, what comes to my mind is the following line from THE SHOOTIST:
"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them."
Senator Bishop, it sounds as if he gravely insulted your mother's honor and thus you were insulted- you responded like a Man, now don't go getting all touchy-feely like most will tell you to and, by all means, stand by your guns sir.
