It's Me!!

I'm going to try and make this blog nonpolitical, the best I can. I am interested in many more things other then politics and this is where I'll include that stuff. I am going to make this blog the place to catch up on how the family and I are doing and what's on my mind other then politics. It's gonna be hard, so don't be surprised if I rant from time to time. Oh and my creations are mine, if you wanna copy them get permission. Copyright belongs to me.

Logic 101: As Taught by Michelle Malkin

Here's a link to Michelle Malkin's latest article. Read that article. I'm going to use her logic.

President Lincoln wanted to free the slaves, some were against the idea. Now a couple hundred years later, the slaves have been freed but we're paying for it every day. Who is paying for it? Everybody!!

I don't think Lincoln envisioned the problem blacks would be to this nation has a whole. Because of his push to free the slaves, we now have a whole race that is free and committing crimes all across the nation. Has anybody in Lincoln's family apologized for the havoc created by freeing the slaves? Blacks have committed crimes against people, but we hear nothing of these victims.

Take Craig Price, a notorious black serial killer. He killed 3 white people in Warwick, Rhode Island. Detectives said it was the most heinous scene they ever seen. Craig was sentenced to 15 years, 8 of them which were suspended. In Feb. 1996 Craig bit a correctional officer's finger, placing him with charges of violation of probation, in 1998 he was charged with contempt of court for failing to undergo state ordered psychological treatments. He might get out of prison in 2022.

Lincoln freeeing the slaves led to:

Countless women raped by black men.
Countless cities burned to the ground because of blacks rioting.
Black neighborhood having higher crime rates.
The Ku Klux Klan being created.

I understand the freeing of the slaves was an emotional issue but it still continues to bite America in the ass. I think white supremacists, racists, xenophobes and afrophobes would agree.

(For those who don't know, couldn't figure it out, don't know me or whatever, this is satirical and by no means is my actual view.)

By using Michelle Malkin's logic, which seems to be the logic coming from the majority of rightwing pundits, it's painfully obvious that they really do seem to hate other races. I understand that ILLEGAL immigrants are in this nation illegally, but they are here now and they are contributing to our nation. Just by using a fake Social Security number they are contributing. Even though it's illegal, they are contributing to the Social Security system.

As a nation we are in way over our heads with the current problem. It is very much against common sense to try and round up all the illegal immigrants to deport them. It would be costly, time consuming and very impractical. We should start at the borders, I believe. Secure the borders so they cannot enter illegally and we'll cut down on the problem. They'll find a way, but can you blame them? This is the land of oppurtunity, afterall.

We should handle the illegal immigrants that here right now with an amnesty type program. I like that idea a lot. It gives them time to become legal citizens, the right way, adds protection from businesses exploiting them and can also raise revenue for the nation by them paying income tax and the such. We should also handle the businesses that employ known illegals by hitting them in the pocketbook. How would a couple thousand dollars per illegally employed immigrant hit a company? Not so well. How would a company's reputation fare if it's known that they are knowingly hiring illegal workers for jobs that could've been given to American citizens or legal immigrants.

Exploitation of illegal immigrants has to end now. It starts by punishing the employers that hire illegal immigrants and ends with everybody in this nation who is here illegally with legal citizenship, legal work visas and better pay for all involved, whether they are illegal immigrants or not. By granting those here visas or citizenship it ends the exploitation, ending the "competition" to hire the cheapest labor possibe and giving fair wages for the job to be done.

Do Your Part

Recently it was announced that the CEO of ExxonMobil will have a retirement package worth 400 million dollars. They are also reaping in gigantic profits, while we are stuck paying an arm, a leg, spleen, liver and at least a kidney for gas at the pumps. Let's do our part and boycott this company, whenever, however just do it. No more billion dollar profits while we're getting killed at the pumps. An excellent date would be the 4th of July weekend, where we can declare freedom from windfall profits, big oil sucking the life out of us and maybe even high gas prices. So, practice some dissent, show Exxon we're not gonna take their shit any longer and do not use any of Exxon's brands.

Favre Set To Play Another Season

Ending months of speculation by the media as well has football fans everywhere, Brett Favre informed GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy that he plans on returning for yet another season at the helm of the Green Bay Packers.

This season could be a record breaking season for Favre as he enters the season with 396 touchdown passes thrown, which leaves him 25 behind all time leader Dan Marino who threw 420 in his career. The odds are good for Favre to throw at least 25 touchdown passes this season, a feat he's only failed to reach 4 times in his career dating back to 1992. He also looks to add to his 221 consecutive games started streak, which is a record for quarterbacks.

I'm happy to see Favre coming back for another season. I hope he'll lead the Pack to the play-offs and beyond. Here's to you Brett! Good luck.

Life During Wartime

[Sung by Billie Joe Armstrong]
[Originally by Pinhead Gunpowder]

Ya we say making changes starts in the little things you do
Revolution begins at home but for most of us it ends there too, and
Doing something we're making changes like changing the brand of crap we buy,
We say it makes a difference but that's just another lie.
It used to be us and them and you and me.
And now we can't reach our potential without a common enemy,
A real war to fight against, instead of our petty disagreements,
How can I rationalize my life during wartime lie.
A call to action and a reaction,
Taking our lives in our own hands,
Instead of sitting around and talking about the same old shity bands.
A war is going on right now,
And I'm not doing anything about it,
Without a crowd I'm not so loud,
I can't do anything by myself,
But that's just another lie.

Spring in the UP??

It's is beautiful out today. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and I don't see a lot of snow in my yard. My cold is going away, other then the pesky cough.. but that's easy to deal with; at least my nose isn't dripping and my body no longer aches.

The Dodgers picked up a victory last night over the Braves. James Loney was called up to replace the injured Nomar Garciaparra and played a good game. He's a 21 yr. old rookie, straight from Double A ball. I hope he can continue to play good ball. My fantasy baseball team basically sucks, this week I stuck myself behind the 8-ball by forgetting to set my line up for the first game, which gave me absolutely no points for that day. Oh well, hopefully it'll get better.

Still no word on whether Brett Favre is going to retire. A lot of sports talk guys are ripping into Favre for comments he made about not helping Aaron Rodgers last season and about the situation with retirement. I can understand why they are ripping, but Brett says stuff like that a lot. He doesn't sugarcoat things during an interview, he's always been candid. He said it wasn't his responsibility to coach Aaron Rodgers, which I can agree with, it isn't. I know he is helping him out a lot, which I don't think the media picks up on for some reason. Oh well. He's a HOF quarterback, arguably the best to play the position ever. He'll go down in history. But I do want to know if he's tarnished his image by his comments last season and thus far with the retirement "controversy" this off-season. What do you readers think?

The "Hammer" has stopped pounding away with his bribes and money laundering, announcing his resignation yesterday or the day before, I don't remember, but Tom DeLay is gone. Does this further prove the GOP is in disarray or is this something that was very overdue? I think it was overdue, but I also think it proves the GOP IS in complete disarray.

Opening Day?

Today is Major League Baseball's "opening day" (they had a night game last night) and the weather here is refusing to cooperate! It's cold, windy and snowing at times. What an opening day up here in the UP!

On tap for the LA Dodgers: v. Atlanta Braves, probable starting pitcher is: Tim Hudson for Atl. and Derek Lowe for the Dodgers. Game time is 4:10 EST. The Dodgers have put starting CF Kenny Lofton on the 15 day DL, which means Jason Repko will be starting in his place today. I think the line up will look something like this:

1. SS Rafael Furcal
2. CF Jason Repko
3. RF JD Drew
4. 2B Jeff Kent
5. 1B Nomar Garciaparra
6. 3B Bill Mueller
7. LF Jose Cruz, Jr.
8. C Dionar Navarro
9. P Derek Lowe

Good luck this season Dodgers! Good luck to the rest of the MLB, well other then the SF Giants, screw los Gigantes.
