The US Must Prevent Irans Nuclear Ambitions!

Is there any doubt the US must prevent Irans Nuclear Ambitions at all costs? Iran is lead by an extreme hardline Islamic regime whose stated goal is to “Wipe Isreal off the map”. Do these statements not smell of Hilter and other tyrant bent of world domination? Extemists like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not be happy until all “non-islamics” are purged from the earth. Is there any doubt that, if they had they ability, that they would not strike out against Isreal, the US and thier allies?

The following are his comments from the Tehran conference. Iran continued to thumb its nose at the United States and Israel.

“The Zionist regime is an injustice and by its very nature a permanent threat,” Ahmadinejad told the gathering of regime officials, visiting Palestinian militant leaders and foreign sympathisers.

“Whether you like it or not, the Zionist regime is on the road to being eliminated,” said Ahmadinejad, whose regime does not recognise Israel and who drew international condemnation last year when he said Israel should be “wiped off the map”.

Unfazed by his critics, the hardliner went on to repeat his controversial stance on the Holocaust.

“If there is serious doubt over the Holocaust, there is no doubt over the catastrophe and Holocaust being faced by the Palestinians,” said the president, who had previously dismissed as a “myth” the killing of an estimated six million Jews by the Nazis and their allies during World War II.

“I tell the governments who support Zionism to … let the migrants [Jews] return to their countries of origin. If you think you owe them something, give them some of your land,” he said.

Iran’s turbaned supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also accused the United States of seeking to place the entire region under Israeli control.

“The plots by the American government against Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon aimed at governing the Middle East with the control of the Zionist regime will not succeed,” Khamenei said.

Can anyone honestly say that we can feel secure and we can ensure the safety of our children if this tyranical extremist is allowed to develop the bomb?

Former IL Gov. Ryan Guilty

Good news for the State of Il. today. Fomer Il. governor and Sec. of State George Ryan was found guilty in federal court. Ryan was found guilty of all 18 counts charged against him of fleecing the state and it’s taxpayers. Charges ranged from accepting gifts and cash in exchange for awarding state contracts to using state workers to aid his campaign. His friend (croney), Larry Warner was also found guilty of 12 counts. They were tried together.

I am very glad the jury in this case brought some justice to the Illinois taxpayers and families of those hurt and killed on Illinois highways due to rewarding drivers licences in exchange for bribes. This is croneism at it’s worst and it certainly followed Ryan to the highest office in the state. Ryan states that this is the way it’s done in our state. Thats the very heart of the issue and Illinois residence are weary of it. I can’t stand Illinois politics and dispite the former governor’s party affiliation, I can’t stand him either. Never could, even from the time he was Sec of State.

“I hope this case begins the end of the political prostitution that seems to have been evident in the state of Illinois, and begins the resurrection of honest government services,”  said Robert Grant, of the Chicago office of the FBI. I don’t think he could have said it better. Imagine how better off our state services would be with efficient and honest leadership in office. Our sales and propertay taxes are among the highest in the nation and it is in no small part due to this “prostitution”. Hopefully Mr. Grant is right and this verdict will usher in a new era of how politics works in Illinois.

No Deal on Illegal Immigrants

Why are our leaders even considering such a compromise? Why should people who have been successful at committing a crime longer be rewarded? Why is our leadership bowing down to the libs on this issue? Security? I think not. In fact, it is evident to me, that this is still nothing more that pandering to voters. Voters in fact, which mean very little in my opinion for passing this bill, may alienate many voters in the base (like me). Its bad enough that we are losing jobs due to the lower labor costs in Mexico and overseas. Now, we are going to allow illegals to come here and take our jobs right from under our noses. We need to let out leadership know now, as in today, that this is not acceptable.

 

Instead of fearing these demonstrations, what we need to do is send a bunch of immigration officers down there to rustle up some more illegals for deportation. Im sure that would disperse the crowds quickly enough.

 

What is needed is more enforcement not more legislation. I dont mean boarder security either. Of course we need that as well, but what we really need to do is cut off the source. Supply and demand is the issue here. There is a high demand for cheap labor. This is no surprise. There is attractive opportunity with little risk to the offenders, both the illegal immigrant and those who employ them. The illegal gets work and at worst, if caught, sent back to Mexico only to return a few weeks later. The employer gets fined at best but generally does not because forged and illegal documentation keeps the employer out of trouble.

 

Stiffer penalties including jail time for offending employers and federal assistance for those who hire immigrants legally. Stopping the flow of illegal immigrants can only be achieved if we penalize employers who hire them, to the extent that the penalty outweighs the benefits. When employers stop hiring these illegals, the benefits to come to this country also get reduced for there will be no jobs unless you come here legally.

 

Reward those who support immigration legally. While there is no question illegal immigration hurts our economy and threatens our security it is equally evident that legal workers contribute greatly to our society in many ways. We need to pass legislation that encourages employers via federal and state funding to hire immigrants that are documented and work here legally. We need to ensure safe working environments and benefits for these workers and make the legal path to work here more attractive then the illegal route.

 Under the Republican proposals, illegal immigrants who have been in the US for more than five years about two thirds of the 11m – could switch to legal status without leaving the country if they met eight requirements, such as speaking English, having worked for at least three of the last five years and paid all federal and state taxes.

Illegal immigrants in the US for between two and five years can secure a temporary work visa, but must first leave the country. They may apply for legal status later, and have priority over other immigrants applying for green cards. Illegal immigrants in the country for fewer than two years must return home and apply for a temporary worker visa.

Send McKinney to Jail

If I, or anyone else regardless of color or status did the same thing don’t you think we would be in jail?

I am so tired of people like McKinney pulling out the race card at every turn. It does nothing to help race relations but only furthers the disparity.

This is not about somebody’s ego. It’s not about racial profiling. It’s about making this place safer and working with the people that try to make it safer,” said Hastert, R-Ill.
