Some Good News

Just a little good news:
Hazelton mayor Lou Barletta was named Mayor of the Year by the Pennsylvania state Mayors.
Go Lou Go.

Justice Watch has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. State Dept. for that agency's failure to turn over certain documents related to the prosecution of Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean.
The FOIA request was filed by Judicial Watch on April 17, 2008. The government failed to respond within their own guidelines of 20 days, nor have they since.
Just what are they hiding? I think we already know the answer to that.

There must be something in the water.

Is it the fact that they are constantly being filmed or is there something in the water that is causing these people to say really dumb things?
First while trying to expound on America's ability to rise to any challenge or attack, Obama says-
"Throughout our history, America's confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world."
I don't know about you but I saw the movie and it appeared there were numerous bombs, torpedos, and kamakazis involved in the Pearl Harbor attack.

Second, Dan Rather in an attempt to defend Jesse Jackson's "cut off his balls" comment, directed at Obama, he referred to Obama as Osama Bin Ladin. Yeah Dan, it's time to retire.

No Mosque, No Mosque

It appears that even ubertolerant Europe may have reached it's limits.
According to a story in the USA today, "Europeans are increasingly lashing out at the construction of mosques in their cities as terrorism fears and continued immigration feed anti-Muslim sentiment across the continent."
"The latest dispute is in Switzerland, which is planning a nationwide referendum to ban minarets on mosques. This month, Italy's interior minister vowed to close a controversial mosque in Milan. "
• In Austria, the southern province of Carinthia passed a law in February that effectively bans the construction of mosques by requiring them to fit within the overall look and harmony of villages and towns.
• Far-right leaders from 15 European cities met in Antwerp, Belgium, in January and called for a ban on new mosques and a halt to "the Islamization" of European cities. The group said mosques act as catalysts for taking over neighborhoods and imposing Islamic ways of life on Europeans.

Some analysts call the mosque conflicts the manifestation of a growing fear that Muslims aren't assimilating, don't accept Western values and pose a threat to security. Does that sound familiar?

A Big Mac Attack

This is a good first step.
According to a USA today report a Reno area McDonalds restaurant franchisee will pay a $1 million fine for giving false Social Security numbers to illegal aliens.
According to the plea agreement, Mack Associates management hired people known to live in the U.S. illegally, and gave them names and S.S. numbers belonging to other individuals.
The director of operations and the franchisee's former vice president pleaded guilty to aiding and abbetting an alien to remain in the U.S. Both men face a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
This is good start in showing the employers that what they are doing will no longer be tolerated.
Good work guys.

This just keeps getting curiouser and curiouser.

This just seems to get more and more strange. A 20 year old Irish national comes to America to live out the American Dream, hitting the road to see the country. Instead, he ends up gunned down in the small town of Silverton Or. by the local police. The real question is how did this dream go so awry?
According to the AP, the family described the young man as mentally ill. While staying with his sister and brother-in-law he was in the habit of banging on their door when he wanted in. He may have gotten confused and knocked on the wrong door. The police were responding to a possible burglary attempt.
Many questions remain. First, why was it necessary to shot the man seven times? Was he armed? Did he pose an eminent threat of danger? Doesn't there seem to be just too much use of deadly force lately? Does every incident have to end in tasering or shooting?
Second, why is a mentally ill man allowed to come to this country with no means of support to just wander around? Why was he allowed to overstay his visa by 6 months.?
To complicate matters, the officer involved in the shooting has now been accused of sexually abusing a girl. This just keeps getting more and more unreal.
