Weekend reading and viewing to make you smarter

Immigration Counters provides key numbers resulting from illegal immigration in the United States. The group supports legal immigration, but highlights the significant weight of illegal immigration as a result of poor governmental controls and unscrupulous employers.

Illegal immigration impacts all aspects of society and is unprecedented in American history.

Take a close look at the statistics and watch as the numbers change, reflecting the seriousness of the ongoing situation. Information about the research supporting the individual counters and data collection methods is available here.

Then watch Roy Beck’s celebrated immigration gumball video — seen here. This is a must see video for anyone interested in the immigration debate.

Be aware that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) introduced this slippery worded placemarker bill last month intended to be quietly held until amended and slid into the middle of the Senate calendar later in the session — with the ultimate goal of granting amnesty for illegals.

And if you missed it the first time around….

The Republic endorses Karl Marx’s dream

The daily’s weekend supplement which regurgitates all of the news from the previous week, wants to remind their dwindling readership that they give an emphatic Thumbs Up to the efforts of Begging for a Handout Mayor Phil Gordon.

Under the headline Gordon’s push for stimulus funds earns our applause is this typical leftist short take:

“Whether you agree with the president’s stimulus plan, thumbs up are in order for Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon, who joined other mayors in a meeting with President Barack Obama to represent the interests of their constituents and insure that their cities get their fair share of funding.”

No mention that the so-called “fair share” comes from overburdened taxpayers across the nation or that the stimulus scheme is filled with non-essential projects. Also omitted is the fact that the grandchildren of today’s toddlers will continue to bear the indefensible debt that comes along with this Marxist ideal of redistribution of wealth.

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

– Karl Marx, a founder of modern socialism and communism

Dow plunge: Worst percentage drop for February since 1933

February 28, 2009

Obama’s 5 ½ week presidency sending chill through the market

A late burst of selling sealed a dismal finish for the stock market, which hit a fresh 12-year low on Friday as Citigroup sold a bigger chunk of itself to the government and General Electric slashed its dividend, spooking investors who were already jittery, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal..

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 119.15 points, or 1.7%, to end at 7062.93. The blue-chip benchmark ended down 937.93 points, or 11.72% on the month — the worst percentage drop for February since 1933, when it fell 15.62%. The Dow industrials have fallen six months in a row and are now more than 50% off their record highs hit in October of 2007.

The S&P 500 fell 17.74 points, or 2.4%, to 735.09. Its financial sector dropped 6.5% and its health-care sector sank 4% on fears that President Barack Obama’s reform plans will carve into the profits of drug makers and insurers. The S&P is off 53% from its October 2007 peak and has now seen its worst six-month drop in percentage terms — 42.7% — since 1932, when it dropped 45.44% in the six months ending in June.

Oh, no! Not this, too?

Is nothing sacred to the Greenies?

“I really do think it is overwhelmingly an American phenomenon,” said Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist at the global warming bastion, Natural Resources Defense Council.

“People just don’t understand that softness equals ecological destruction.”

“This is a product that we use for less than three seconds and the ecological consequences of manufacturing it…are enormous,” he said.

Reagan is once again proven correct

February 27, 2009


President Ronald Reagan was renown for saying that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

Rasmussen Reports confirm his words still resonate with Americans. 59% of voters agree with Reagan’s inaugural address statement — given January 20, 1981. Only 28% disagree, and 14% are not sure.
