The ‘Maids, Nannies, Gardeners, and Landscapers’ CANARD

Posted by Mark on July 31, 2007

Ruben Navarrette Jr of infamy, can not possibly talk about illegal immigration without playing the sympathy card.

I’ve never been to Hazleton. But I imagine that the place is lovely and has its share of restaurants, hotels and construction firms. It probably also has plenty of working mothers who rely on maids and nannies and plenty of working dads who come home to nicely manicured lawns maintained by gardeners and landscapers, all courtesy of our broken borders. And for years, it’s been this way, and no one said a thing about it. Because everyone prospered.

Why…I do declare- rich white America would just crumble and fall if we didn’t have our Mexican maids, nannies, gardeners, and landscapers! Yes’m….we lilly white folk would just have to go back to finding po’ blacks to do the dirty work. We’re all just helpless without our hispanic nee-grows…don’t ya know!

Give me a @$%*#& break.

What we should be talking about instead is just how disingenuous these types of localities are being. Illegal immigration is a self-inflicted wound.

What we should be talking about- you pseudo-pious Latino dolt– is…towns like Hazleton are trying to fix the problem and get past the blame…whether they brought it on themselves or not. Ruben Navarrette Jr. has been vying for Stupidest Man in America…a crown he has been seeking to take for years.

A crown masterfully worn by Jesse Jackson.

Taliban CONTINUES The Execution

Posted by Mark on July 30, 2007

They began it….now it continues.

A second South Korean hostage held captive by the Taliban in Afghanistan has been killed, a spokesman for the militant group told CNN on Monday.

“Since Kabul’s administration did not listen to our demand and did not free our prisoners, the Taliban shot dead a male Korean hostage,” Qari Mohammad Yousuf told Reuters by phone from an unknown location. CNN was unable to confirm the report.

CNN must employ high school cub reporters to write their online stories. The militant group ‘told CNN’ in paragraph one. They ‘told Reuters’ by phone but ‘CNN was unable to confirm’ in paragraph two. So which is it…you twits?

We had assurance from the Koreans that Kabul will release Taliban prisoners in batches and we will reciprocate,” Yousuf told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.

It is ASTOUNDING how Reuters continues to converse with the Taliban from an ‘unknown location’. A location obviously unknown to everyone else….BUT Reuters! Reuters has been conversing with them for over a week.

I hope there is a special place in hell for the Taliban and the Reuters reporters who pander to them.

Checking Out of the Hotel California

Posted by Mark on July 27, 2007

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
‘Relax,’ said the night man,
‘We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!’

Bright and early Thursday August 2nd, I will be driving my little red 2005 Chevrolet Aveo across America. After 22 years in California, it is INDEED time for me to go home. (Or at least a 4 hour drive from home.) It’s been a wonderful run, a great experience….and a huge part of my life…BUT, California has changed and I haven’t.

I have decided to leave California, transfer within my company, and move to a town just outside of Orlando, FL. I thought I would stay here for life, but the California dream has lost its luster. What started out as an amazing melange of things to do, people to meet, and places to see has turned into a bilious dissonance- of social ills, warped values, and deleterious mores.

In short, California has become incredibly toxic.

The gangs, the crime, the moral equivocation festoons your life. It threatens children, family, and everyone you love. My initial excitement and attraction to California has been replaced by jaundice and acrimony.

And she said ‘We are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

I became a prisoner of California, and certainly….of my own device. I do appreciate all the opportunities this state has offered me, but the bitter now outweighs the sweet. As a matter of perspective, I thought it important that I capture a few of the salient threads in my decision:

I will miss….

1. Laguna Beach and Pacific Coast Hwy
2. Jogging along the beach in Long Beach.
3. Sunday afternoons listening to Flamenco guitars at Fashion Island in Newport Beach
4. Eating the best hotdog (bacon wrapped with grilled onions, peppers, mustard and relish!) on the Planet at the Farmer’s Market in San Pedro.
5. Anaheim Angels baseball on a Saturday Night in the summer.
6. Smoking a good Corona or Arturo Fuente cigar with my friends once a month.
7. Hiking in Malibu canyon.
8. All the art museums.
9. Doing the LA Sunday Times crossword puzzle.
10. Pushing my son Joshua around Ralph’s grocery store in a cart that looks like a Race Car.

What I won’t miss….

1. Spanish signs in Banks, Drug Stores, and Malls
2. Spanish Billboards, Spanish TV Channels, and Spanish Phone messaging.
3. Waiting in the Long Beach Children’s hosptial ER room for 4 hours because hundreds of illegal aliens are in line ahead of you.
4. Waiting at a stoplight through 2 changes because hordes of pedestrians are slowly crossing the street.
5. Bumping, stumbling, or tripping over dogs and PETS that shoppers have been allowed to bring into stores because shop owners are too worried about political correctness- and not dictate policy.
6. The massive demonstrations by illegal aliens, gay activists, and unions.
7. Being threatened by grocery union members when I shop.
8. The overcrowded public parks, schools, and hospitals.
9. Being shot at by gangbangers on Valentine’s Day.
10. The massive traffic jams and freeway road rage.
11. Having my truck broken into three times and my car twice.
12. Having to buy a 9mm Smith and Wesson to protect myself and my family.
13. The stoplights on freeway on-ramps.
14. The bastion of social policy and liberal insanity- the Sacramento Legislature
15. The incessant focus and adulation of celebrity and fame.
16. Next door neighbors not knowing each other.
17. The complete abdication of personal responsibility.
18. The complete breakdown of the California public school system.
19. The burden of paying for insurance to cover the outrageous cost of workman’s compensation.
20. The constant liberal bias expressed by LA TV stations and LA print media.

The quality of life here has eroded significantly. And it’s time….it’s time for me to move on.

Clinton Appointed Judge Rules Against Hazleton

Posted by Mark on July 26, 2007

Well – looks like Hazleton, PA will have to appeal the appeal. Yah…apparently, towns have no right to make their citizens responsible for harboring illegal aliens.

A federal judge on Thursday struck down the city of Hazleton’s tough crackdown on illegal immigrants, ruling unconstitutional a law that has been emulated by towns and cities around the United States.

The Illegal Immigration Relief Act sought to impose fines on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants and deny business permits to companies that give them jobs. Another measure would have required tenants to register with City Hall and pay for a rental permit.

And so the social miasma continues. The social malaise marches on UNIMPEDED. Thanks Judge. No one is held accountable…no one is responsible…nice of you to kick that can down the road.

For a copy of this post, press 1 for English…

Taliban Begins The Execution

Posted by Mark on July 25, 2007

Your friendly neighborhood band of murdering Muslim sociopaths, the Taliban- have begun executing South Koreans in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan’s Taliban killed one of the 23 South Korean hostages on Wednesday after Kabul failed to free Taliban prisoners, a spokesman for the group said, adding insurgents would kill more if their demands were not met.

“Since Kabul’s administration did not listen to our demand and did not free our prisoners, the Taliban shot dead a male Korean hostage,” Qari Mohammad Yousuf told Reuters by phone from an unknown location.

I love how Reuters, CNN, and the Associated Press gather news. Someone just happens to know the phone number of the Taliban in their UNKNOWN LOCATION? Or did the Taliban call them up?

[Reuters GHAZNI Newsroom, the telephone rings…]

Reuters: Hello?

Qari: Hey Bob, it’s Q…how’s it going?

Reuters: Qari…you old son of a goat herder!…I’m so glad you called.

Qari: You filthy unwashed infidel, don’t say my name over the phone. It’s Q!

Reuters: Oh…uh sorry about that. Listen man…I’m hurtin’ here. I need a headline. Any movement on the South Koreans?

Qari: Alright…alright…calm down- you pathetic Western swine. I’ve got some great news.

Reuters: (visibly relieved) Thank God!…Uh….I mean…thank Allah!

Qari: Yep. We’ve started executing them.

Reuters: Serious?

Qari: Yah…we wacked one of the Christians….he was crying and begging for his life- I couldn’t take it anymore- so I shot him in the back of the head.

Reuters: What!

Qari: Yah…he had no Seoul.

Reuters: HAHAHAHA! That’s funny Q! Good one.

Qari: Tell the rest of the world, we will continue until the Afghan government meets our demands.

Reuters: Okay…got it.

Qari: Listen Bob….this is my cell number, if you don’t hear from me later today- don’t panic…I may be out of cell range- sometimes it’s tough picking up a signal.

Reuters: Thanks Q….we owe you one.

Qari: Just make sure it makes the 6 o’clock evening news. I like that Katie Couric. She reminds me of my sister- only without the full burqa.

Reuters: (chuckling)

Qari: Gotta go….

And you think I’m kidding….

Democrats and Religion

Posted by Mark on July 23, 2007

Democrats trying to reach out to religious voters is like Michael Moore trying to reach out to Jenny Craig- a silly attempt with no chance of any real success.

Democratic candidates trying to reach religious voters

Tired of being seen by religious voters as too secular or even hostile toward religion, the Democrat party and its presidential candidates have launched an all-out effort to win their votes.

This effort is apparent on the stump, where many of the Democratic candidates speak openly of religion and God and present moral justifications for their policies. It’s also going on behind the scenes, with presidential campaigns hiring strategists to coordinate their outreach to religious communities and holding weekly conference calls with religious leaders.

It has to be authentic. This is not about Jesus-ing up the party, so to speak … It just won’t work if it’s seen as a cynical ploy,” said Mara Vanderslice, a Democratic strategist and evangelical Christian.

Uh…apparently Ms. Vanderslice has been asleep for 30 years. Otherwise, she would have left the Democratic Party long ago. The party leaders wouldn’t know Jesus if he stopped them at a traffic light on the campaign trail.

You might get Cardinal Roger Mahoney and his merry band of 12 million illegal aliens and their sympathizers to vote for you but that won’t stand up in a national election. And why won’t things change for the Democrats? Well, I’ll tell you why not….2 simple reasons, reasons that religious people CARE about.

1. Abortion and Roe v Wade
2. Embryonic Stem Cell Research

You’ve made your free clinic bed, now lie in it.

Culture Of Death Gets Live Tribe Members Back

Posted by Mark on July 20, 2007

Israel, in its infinite wisdom, has released 250 Palestinian prisoners. WHY? Uh…that would be America and Israel’s continued role as the Great Appeasers:

Israel released more than 250 Palestinian prisoners on Friday as part of a U.S.-backed deal to bolster Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas after Hamas Islamists took over the Gaza Strip last month.

The prisoners, who were mostly members of Abbas’s secular Fatah faction, arrived in the West Bank city of Ramallah where they were greeted by Abbas and reunited with family members.

“You cannot imagine how happy we are that you came back to us,” Abbas told a crowd of about 3,000 at the presidential compound. “But our happiness is missing something because we want all 11,000 prisoners to return to their families.”

You see?

It’s NEVER ENOUGH….no matter how much the U.S. and Israel appease, they want more. George Bush and Ehud Olmert are clueless. The Palestinian nightmare will continue. And the over and under in Las Vegas for resolving this asinine diplomacy? is…..

100 years.

Vladimir Soprano

Posted by Mark on July 18, 2007

His birth certificate might read Vladimir Putin, but the reality is….he’s more like Tony Soprano.

British security services have foiled a plot to assassinate Boris Berezovsky, President Putin’s arch foe, according to reports today. The Russian tycoon and dissident fled his London home three weeks ago after Scotland Yard warned him of the threat.

A Russian hitman who intended to shoot Mr Berezovsky at the Hilton hotel, in Park Lane, west London was captured after an operation involving MI5 and MI6, according to the Sun. Scotland Yard has refused to comment.

If Putin can’t poison the opposition– he will hire a hitman to shoot them in the head. BADA BING -BADA BANG.

Mr Berezovsky was initially a supporter of the new president, Vladimir Putin, but the pair fell out and he was forced into exile.

You can’t leave the family Boris.

Whacked Leftwing Hollywood Celebrities

Posted by Mark on July 17, 2007

With Al Franken running for Senate office in Minnesota….the good news is- his Hollywood buddies can’t hide from their donations.

In an April episode of ABC’s “The View,” Bill Maher and Rosie O’Donnell professed their support for Al Franken’s 2008 Minnesota Senate candidacy, with O’Donnell saying she was “maxing out” to the comedian-turned-candidate. O’Donnell kept to her word, contributing $2,300 to his campaign, the maximum donation for the primary, while Maher chipped in $1,000.

They were among the more than 50 contributions that Franken, a former “Saturday Night Live” star, received from actors, writers, producers and others in the last reporting period, his campaign finance report shows.

Yah…Rosie and Maher are no surprise- but there are quite a few others:

Some entertainers did even better than O’Donnell, contributing $4,600 — with $2,300 earmarked for the general election, should Franken get that far. Those included Dan Aykroyd, Robin Williams and Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner.

Among other notable contributors were actor Ed Norton, director Harold Ramis, actress Meg Ryan, cartoonist Garry Trudeau, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala, and Karenna Gore Schiff, daughter of former Vice President Al Gore.

That followed a first-quarter performance that included $4,600 contributions from actors Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Jason Alexander and Larry David.

I know I shouldn’t care….but now I have to lump the Tom Hanks and the Paul Newmans in with the Sean Penns and Tim Robbins of the world.

Extremely disappointing.
