Imagine suing your town for enforcing the law…lets say property taxes. Let’s imagine for a moment that you decide one day that there is no point in paying property taxes, and in addition to not paying them, you decide to sue the city and the mayor of the city for trying to collect. Just your luck, there are a handful of law students who will take your case, pro bono. Imagine suing your city for enforcing the speed limit in school zones, or imagine suing your city for enforcing other laws such as burglary, ID theft, etc.
Now imagine your city being sued by people who are in your city illegally; people who have no constitutional rights to anything, because they have not been granted citizenship, but decide to sue the city, with the help of pro bono law students. I can’t make this stuff up.
I emailed the Mayor this morning, and thanked him for his dedication, and told him I wished our own mayor would do something about our town. Every day, weekends included, there are anywhere between 20-50 illegal aliens who stand near the I-95 exit, waiting for work in my town. They used to roam all over the place, and instead of the police department coming and dealing with them, or even giving it to the federal authorities, they erected a sign to inform the illegals to congregate in one area near the exit, rather than all over the general area. While my mayor pledges that ours will not be a sanctuary city, he aids them finding work by designating a spot for them to wait and acquire it. I don’t believe my mayor has my best interests in mind…perhaps he is counting on these illegal votes, once they’re given amnesty.
At least the Mayor of Danbury is standing up for something, although the ACLU may sue him as well. I’ve ranted enough about illegal immigration, you all know where I stand, so I’m changing the subject.
President Ahmawannajihad was in our country this week. He addressed the UN and then went to Columbia….Why is the UN here? Why is it that people cry out that we have too much control at the UN, when we fund more of it than any other country on the planet? And why is it that we can’t ban people from attending, because the UN is in OUR country? Can’t they move it to France? And why did Pres. Bollinger invite Ahmawannajihad to Columbia in the first place, only to turn around and talk a bunch of trash? What did he think Ahmawannajihad would do? Beat him up? That must make Bollinger either a real tough guy or a blooming idiot. I mean, I’m so intimidated by him, he called the Iranian President cruel and petty- to his face no less- after cordially inviting him to speak there. Just so other people could hear him say “Cruel and Petty”.
While I hate to hand it to Ahmawannajihad- he’s right to say that Bollinger is disrespectful. I mean, what kind of bully tactic is that? If Bollinger was so tough, he could have said all those things in private, but saying it in front of his students is like picking a fight in the lunch room at school, knowing the teachers will break it up if blows are thrown, so the bully gets in as much trash talk as possible. Bollinger made a total ass out of himself. He acted like a teenager with a big vocabulary. The RIGHT thing to do would have been to say that he would never have extended an invitation to such a petty and cruel dictator, or something similar. But all this coming from the man whose students ran off the Minute Men and from the man who will not allow military speakers/recruiters, the JROTC or other conservative person have a forum on the stage. Mr. Bollinger's picture is in the dictionary, next to the word "HYPOCRITE".
Meanwhile, our legislators are busy in Washington trying to add as many earmarks and special interest laws to the war funding bill as possible. Currently they are trying to “combat terrorism in our streets” by attaching a hate crimes bill. Bush is threatening a veto, but the Dems think they can sway him because of the importance of the bill in which the hate crimes one is attached. So the president can sign and we get federal hate crimes investigations or not sign and we get no money for the war. I’m not sure what the dems are leading at…why are they playing around? I mean, we all know it’s what they do best.
I do not support hate crimes legislation, and have talked about it with other people at length. I feel that my head is worth the same as some gay guy’s head. If I get beat up and put in the hospital, then the criminal gets punished. If a gay guy gets beat up and in the hospital, the criminal gets in MORE trouble, because the victim was gay. How is it the gay guy is more important than me? Why is he more special? This crime legislation is just SO gay. But if it were passed, I could get in trouble for just saying that statement.
For what it’s worth, I doubt it’ll get passed, it hasn’t made it though yet. However if a democrat gets elected, it just might. We’ll have to see, it’s too soon to tell what is going to happen. While the polls project this and that, I try not to listen to them- they are hardly right. I did see one poll that I found interesting, yet far from surprising and that relates to the level of trust the public has for their federal government. I’m SURE they would feel better if the feds would stay out of our personal lives and stop trying to be our parents and saving us from ourselves.
The Democrats are always going to think they know better than the public, though. They aren’t small government minded people. They want to interfere in your life, play mommy, raise your kids, adjust your low income with that of someone who makes more than you. They want to tax the ever living crap out of you for anything they can think of to either balance their budgets or increase their budgets. They want to raise our taxes to combat global warming (??!!!??!!!?!). As much trash as they’ve talked, they won’t be ending the war if they get elected. Dumb democratic individuals believed them when they voted them in office in the 2006 elections. THAT’S WHAT YOU GET. I wonder if they’ll vote for them again so that the democrat politicians can bring our troops home, and once in office, nothing happens. I’m here to tell you, folks: No matter WHO gets elected, the war will not end “In the first year of my presidency”, quoting MANY democratic candidates.
The Republicans better get it together, though. They’re not doing so hot, I really think they need to get back to their base, rather than spending all this time countering liberal talking points. They waste so much time going back and forth on each issue, and not enough time expressing what good conservatives they really are. And by doing this, they are setting themselves up for humiliation, and are risking not being taken seriously. Romney wants to jump on democrats for wanting to publicly teach our second graders about homosexual relationships, but many people remember when he was soft on the issue in his home state. (for the record, I will be home schooling my children, if I ever have any. Public education is nothing but brainwash, anymore, and I will never have my kid go to be indoctrinated by someone who only wants to teach and mold them into what they see fit- which is taking away the rights of the parent to do their job…furthermore, children-but not that young-should be taught reproduction education, not sex education. Kids that young should be taught how to read and write-but not about sex-what seven year old needs to know about sex???)
Note to Romney-everyone but Moonbats know how immoral the liberals are, especially when the students at Columbia only booed Ahmawannajihad when he mentioned no gays are in Iran. Stick to conservative issues, and showing how conservative you are with regard to small government, fiscal responsibility, border security, and things like that. Don’t sit and debate issue for issue- it only shows us that you’re as petty as them.
In closing, I would like to briefly mention the Moveon.org ad calling Petraeus “Betray Us”. Yea, okay- what the hell ever. Anyone who really feels that way (and aren’t being paid by George Soros) can tell me what your better plan for Iraq is. I’m so sick of these people saying “Bring our guys home” when, A), these men volunteered for this job and B) exactly what happens to Iraq- a state we messed up- when we abandon it? I went to DC on the 15th, to rally against these moonbats and George Soros puppets. I love their yellow signs, just like their yellow bellies. (How do you negotiate peace with someone who wants to kill you because you are an infidel?) MY sign read, “Who would bin Laden vote for?!” Guess how many uneducated moonbats told me he would have voted for Bush! Michelle Malkin liked it though (7th picture down).
