Have a Heart

What city in the world is number two in kidnapping crimes?
Number one is no surprise-Mexico City.

Number two (drum roll please).PHOENIX, ARIZONA. Yeah not Bhagdad, or Port of Prince Haiti, but Phoenix.

For all of you illegal alien apologists that insist that the Arizona law to check ID for those suspected of being here illegally is racist have a heart. The citizens of Arizona are under attack. They are finally rising up and saying were not going to take this any longer. The Federal government has left them alone to fend for themselves against the constant deluge of criminals flooding across the border.

Immigration Reform We Don't Need.

Alexander Bolton - 04/30/10 06:00 AM ET

A plan by Senate Democratic leaders to reform the nation’s immigration laws ran into strong opposition from civil liberties defenders before lawmakers even unveiled it Thursday.

Democratic leaders have proposed requiring every worker in the nation to carry a national identification card with biometric information, such as a fingerprint, within the next six years, according to a draft of the measure.

“The cardholder’s identity will be verified by matching the biometric identifier stored within the microprocessing chip on the card to the identifier provided by the cardholder that shall be read by the scanner used by the employer,” states the Democratic legislative proposal.

Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), who has worked on the proposal and helped unveil it at a press conference Thursday, predicted the public has become more comfortable with the idea of a national identification card.

While I agree that we need a process to guarantee that workers in the US need to be legal, national ID cards are not necessary and contrary to Mr. Durbin's assumption, the public is not comfortable with biometric cards. We have the necessary tools currently available if we only apply them correctly and with earnest.

The Truth Comes Out.

Obama went off teleprompter in Illinois while explaining his economic reform policies. He finally admitted that Americans have the right to earn as much money as they can if done honestly and provide a good product, there really is a limit to how much money you really need.

I wonder if this applies to AL GORE?

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Tea Party Crashers.

The Associated Press-Valerie Bauman.

Albany, N.Y.-
Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.

Jason Levin, creator of, said Monday the group has 65 leaders in major cities across the country who are trying to recruit members to infiltrate tea party events for April 15 — tax filing day, when tea party groups across the country are planning to gather and protest high taxes.

"Do I think every member of the tea party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not," Levin said. "Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely."

Now that's taking the high road.

How Our Tax Dollars Are Spent.

CONCORD — A crew of federal officials wandering into a day labor hiring zone used to mean one thing: time to leave.

Not the case Thursday morning on Monument Boulevard. Armed with coffee, not handcuffs, investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor chatted warmly with Latino immigrant workers about how to find jobs without being exploited.

"We're the feds, but the good ones," said Paul Ramirez, speaking in Spanish inside the Michael Chavez Center, a gathering spot for day laborers. "We're here to help workers."

The unprecedented visit was part of a campaign to bring long-established workplace protections to the nation's most vulnerable and underpaid workers, including those who have no legal right to be living in the United States.

Ramirez made the same speech recently to workers who gather outside a Home Depot in Pittsburg. And it's not only a message for day laborers; it was delivered Thursday at the Chinese Newcomers Service Center in San Francisco.

The awareness campaign, called "We Can Help," is being led by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, a former Southern California congresswoman who joined the Obama administration early last year.
