Barack Obama took the opportunity to call out the state of Arizona yesterday during a White House ceremony where a number of US service members became naturalized citizens. Obama said if we fail to act (he uses that phrase all the time to trump up the urgency) we will get more misguided efforts like the one in Arizona.
Arizona’s Governor responded by signing the legislation into law thus giving her police the tools to fight a problem that is the result of federal inaction. The federal government has had opportunities to stop the flow of people coming here illegally but it refuses to do anything meaningful. The federal government has given amnesty two times in the past and each time the amnesty came with a promise that this would not be necessary ever again and that the border would be closed and immigration laws followed.
Instead, we now have about 12 million people here illegally and their presence is a burden to the financial system of our country and they are a particular burden to the states because the states end up paying for them. They attend schools, they get government (taxpayer) money from social programs and they commit crimes. Those who support the illegals say that they commit no more crime than citizens do. Who cares? If they were NOT here they would be committing NO crime here.
Obama and his Democrats are working up yet another amnesty program that will allow people who broke the law to get here and are in violation of the law each and every day, to become citizens.
This is the only thing misguided here.
The Arizona law allows police to require proof that one is here legally if that person has made contact with police for some other reason. If they are pulled over for speeding or involved in an accident then they can be asked. ANYONE can be asked to prove legal residence.
This law is the direct result of federal inaction and Arizona’s patience running out after a huge influx of illegals, drug related crimes involving illegals, murders caused by illegals and kidnapping at the hands of illegals.
If the federal government had kept its promise after either of the other two amnesties this law would not be necessary but since the federal government has been playing games with the issue, Arizona was forced to act. Arizona is a sovereign state and has a right to protect its borders. It has a right to check to see if people who are there are there legally.
Therefore, all people should be required to prove that they are here legally to (among other things) enroll in school, apply for welfare, buy or rent a place to live, get a driver’s license, and get a job.
Those of us who are citizens are required to prove this for a number of things. It is high time that we applied this to everyone so we can weed out those who do not belong here.
I can understand how Obama would be opposed to Arizona’s law. He has been asked for his papers a number of times and has refused to produce them.
Never surrender, never submit.

Crime in Chicago will be down on Christmas Eve because the government will be shut down with the exception of essential services.
The City of Chicago will be shutting down early for the Christmas holiday, as part of Mayor Daley’s plan to save the cash-strapped city money.
City Hall, public libraries, health clinics and most other city offices will be closed on Christmas Eve as those city workers are being forced to take the day off without pay. CBS 2 Chicago
Since most of the crime in Chicago is committed by the government then it stands to reason that there will be less crime.
Of course, the Chicago thugs in DC will still be committing crimes against humanity.

Looks like the ACORN office in San Diego (that demonstrated fraud like this) is not the only one that has been breaking the law by dumping thousands of papers containing personal information. ACORN beat feet out of an office in Oklahoma last year so it could avoid paying the back rent it owed (no wonder they help people get loans they can’t even hope to pay back) and the group left behind a lot of paperwork and a computer. The paperwork included the group’s plan for putting the right politicians in office. The document posted at Big Government leaves no doubt that ACORN is a liberal organization dedicated to assisting the Democratic party. It is interesting the way they describe neighborhoods with Anglos in them (as if that is a bad thing).
Looks like ACORN is in violation of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which governs how personal information is handled by certain institutions (of which ACORN is one). The documents dumped include credit reports (like the one found here), social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, addresses, dates of birth and all kinds of information that would be very useful to someone interested in stealing an identity.
The fine for failing to safeguard this information is $100,000 per incident. Since there are tens of thousands of papers containing tens and thousands of breaches of personal information, ACORN should be bankrupt and out of business when they get done with the fines.
I am amazed at the number of people who continue to defend this organization. It is rotten to the core and just when you think you have seen it all a new item pops up to expose them even more.
This group is a bunch of community organizing thugs who break or skirt the law in order to advance a political agenda just like their former mentor, Barack Obama or B-HO, as it were.
Each day Breitbart releases another item that exposes the corruption of ACORN.
He has promised that if the Attorney General does not launch a serious investigation then a lot of stuff will be released before the 2010 election.
That’s one way to take down the Democrats. Take down their community organizing firm.

ACORN is a group that claims to be a bunch of community organizers (who once had Barry Obama working with them) who look out for the downtrodden and make sure that people are registered to vote and have access to government (read taxpayer) money. The reality is that they are a partisan organization devoted to promoting liberal ideas and they do it with millions of taxpayer dollars.
There were plenty of allegations of voter fraud and ACORN ducked most of it with ruses about self reporting and pointing out that a few bad apples don’t spoil the whole bunch, a claim that some of the liberals like to make.
Then we had a few videos where ACRON employees worked to get a home loan for a prostitute and pimp who planned on pimping out underage girls from South America. We were told that these were flukes and that the video was doctored. Then more videos came out. The big cheeses at ACORN denied what had happened and said that the pimp and prostitute were thrown out of the office. Then the video was aired and it showed that claim to be a lie.
As ACORN claimed to have gotten rid of the bad apples in these so called isolated incidents, more videos were released. The people making the films claim there are more to come even though they are the ones being sued over the entire mess. Regardless, they have shown ACORN as the corrupt organization that it is and as more videos are released this organization will be buried. Rumor has it that a bunch of stuff will be released prior to the 2010 elections. Won’t that be fun?
Looks like ACORN is at it again. The Attorney General of California gave the San Diego office a heads up that their office would be visited so ACORN did what many criminals do, they got rid of evidence. But, a private detective who was keeping track of them watched as some workers in the San Diego office threw away 20,000 papers. The PI retrieved those papers from a dumpster.
Among those papers were tax documents, employment records and applications, all containing personally identifying information. The papers contain names, addresses, social security numbers and driver’s license numbers, all the things a criminal would need to steal identities.
Besides the criminal behavior of failing to safeguard private information, what else might those papers contain? Perhaps we will see illegals who were hired? Maybe we can see company documents that spell out what they actually do. Breitbart reports that some of the documents clearly demonstrate that ACORN is not a non partisan group and that they work for the Democrats.
ACORN’s political agenda is also exposed, with thousands upon thousands of documents revealing the depth of the political machine that is ACORN, and its disturbing ties to not only public employee labor unions but some of the most radical leftist organizations. Big Government
This organization is full of liberal criminals who work to advance the agenda of their liberal masters in DC. They are community organizers in the mold of Alinsky and Obama, radicals who want to change America.
Breitbart is going to keep releasing ACORN incriminating things all the way up to election day and bury the left with its own Frankenstein.
Now that will be fun.
Any bets that any investigation by Congressional Democrats will determine that ACORN offices need paper shredders?

The Democrats in New Jersey are campaigning for Independent candidate Chris Daggett. The robocalls are from the New Jersey Democratic State Committee and are telling voters to vote for Daggett. This, of course, is a means to an end and the end is a win for Corzine. Corzine is despised by a large number of the people in New Jersey but since it is a heavily Democratic state, they are having trouble with their vote. They do not want to vote for Corzine but Christie has an “R” next to his name and they have been trained that they are never to punch that button.
The Democrats are trying to get those who decide not to support Corzine to vote Daggett so that they can split the votes and Corzine will win. Once can discuss the ethical implications and the dirty tricks appearance of this but that is for another time. I am zeroed in on two different messages that are generated from this tactic.
The first is, the Democrats know Corzine is a slug, a poor candidate, and not well liked but they want him to win nonetheless so they can keep their stranglehold on the state. So they had to come up with a plan to help him win and since he is not good enough to win on his merits or his record they had to trick voters. By asking people who will not vote for Corzine to vote for Daggett they are effectively getting people who take that path to vote for Corzine.
Folks will think they voted against the man but a vote for Daggett is effectively a vote for Corzine or the Democrats would not be doing this. This can only help Corzine or it would not be the tactic. Democrats want to win, not lose.
People in New Jersey, what does it say about Corzine that his own party would ask you to vote for some other candidate instead of trying to convince you he deserves your vote? How miserable is he that they would ask you to vote for someone else?
On top of that, and the second item, is how stupid do they think the voters are? They are calling you and telling you that if you are upset with Corzine then please vote for this other person. Do they think you are dumb enough to believe that they are not doing this to get Corzine elected? Do they really think you are that stupid and shouldn’t you be angered by their portrayal of you?
It would actually be kind of funny if this plan backfired and Daggett won. It would serve them right for this kind of deception.
As you folks in New Jersey head to the polls keep this in mind. This sleezy tactic is coming from the party of the guy who is already your governor, the guy who has had an administration full of this kind of sleeze. If you vote for him or for Daggett then you are saying that you condone this kind of thing and are happy no matter what they do to you.
You have been hammered with high taxes and high unemployment not to mention the corruption.
The question is, do you want more of the same?
You know you will get it. Look at what they are doing to win…
When Corzine was sworn in he asked you to hold him accountable. Today is the day you get to do that.
