More immigration

Not only do we have an illegal immigration problem, but we have an illegal immigration employer problem, as well as an illegal immigration employer facilitation problem. These frickin people should be behind bars.

This is akin to holding a conference to tell someone how to embezzle money and not get caught.

Welcome Home


Denver, how did you become Berkley?

In an attempt to out-liberal Berkley CA, Denver has recently decided that they wanted to be the hippie, tree-hugging, bicycle riding, capital of the world.
The mayor there has proposed that instead of allowing the market to decide where people live (or, God forbid, the PEOPLE to decide), he wants to institute higher insurance rates for the amount of driving that people do. This would, in his mind, penalize people who live in the suburbs and of course force them back into his city (becoming Denver taxpayers again, as opposed to suburbanites). Of course, he's billing it as an environmental thing, to lower emissions from the vehicles that drive the additional miles, but we all know that it's not that at all.
Additionally, Denver is going to charge their residents more money to dispose of their garbage, recycle, and a number of other things. Users of large amount of electric or natural gas will be charged extra as well.

My question is this: Will this have any affect at all, environmentally? Or will it merely cripple the city, by forcing companies to relocate to the suburbs because quality employees won't want to drive into the city (for multiple reasons, not the least of which is the insurance hike)? The companies would have to pay employees more to compete with suburban companies because of this additional cost to the drivers. Additionally, how many people in Denver can barely afford to live their now, and the additional cost of utilities and garbage disposal may force them elsewhere as well. And how many poor people do you think live in energy efficient homes? So those poor people, who I am sure that the Denver mayor campaigned that he 'cared' about so much, will be the ones penalized the most, because they live in older homes that may not be as efficient, where they may have to use space heaters to keep warm (horribly wasteful) will be charged extra for using more electricity than some rich families that can afford to purchase new, efficient furnaces, insulation, windows, etc.

Typical liberal socialist stupidity. Make everyone pay for the agenda of a select few, while those select few barely sacrifice at all.

One other thing....

The warmest years on record in Denver? 11/12 were before 1990. Coldest morning in 50 years? June 8, 2007

Yep, that's some global warming going on out there.

Careful, may get frostbit from all that global warmin

Subsidizing Illegal Alien tuition

In response to the comments, I did a bit of research.

What I'm assuming that the commenter was referring to, when referencing the subsidization of the illegal's college education, is that illegal aliens are allowed to attend state schools in nine different states (California, Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma Texas, Utah, and Washington) at in-state tuition rates.

This means that legal US residents, who happen to live in other states, have to pay more than someone who is in the country illegally, which is discrimination against US Citizens and violates the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.

So, this great new Immigration Reform bill will probably contain other laws that will not be enforced, just like the last one, and the one before....which explains pretty clearly why it is that most conservatives are against it. It also explains why it is that the Bush administration's approval rating is as low as it is. The 'base' is actively being alienated by this horrible bill, and is responding appropriately.

Same crap, different day.

God Bless Texas

Don't know if this is an urban legend or not, but Dr. Ken forwarded it to me and I found it clever, so it works either way:

T. Bubba Bechtel, a part time City Councilman from Midland, TX, was asked on a local live radio talk show the other day just what he thought of the allegations of torture of the Iraqi prisoners. His reply prompted his ejection from the studio, but to thunderous applause from the audience.

"If hooking up an Iraqi prisoner's scrotum to a car's battery cables will save one Texas GI's life, then I have just two things to say":

"Red is positive" - "Black is negative"

Memo to NYT writer Jodi Kantor:

Hey Jodi, I realize that you work for the NYSlimes, and you're not really expected to write fairly about conservatives or even write a 'puff piece' about them. It's your job to expose their wicked, evil, sins and as a NYSlimes reporter, you're gonna.

So, why is it that your not-so-subtle, blow-job of a piece on Obama wasn't nearly as critical? Just curious...

Oh, and Jodi?

You got a little on your chin there.....
