A quote from Frank Sinatra

“I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.” Frank Sinatra

From the Vodkapundit: The Political Wisdom of Jim Henson

A call to bork Elena Kagan — from The Nation? Yes, indeedy. Check it out:

What is less remarked upon is that in her article Kagan proposed a model for a more vigorous and candid confirmation hearing—that of Judge Robert Bork. The process worked in that instance, she argued, not because of the particular result but because the hearings “presented to the public a serious discussion of the meaning of the Constitution, the role of the Court, and the views of the nominee; that discussion at once educated the public and allowed it to determine whether the nominee would move the Court in the proper direction.” In both popular and right-wing parlance, “borking” now means to vilify and defame a nominee in order to block his appointment, but Kagan’s description is in fact a far more accurate account of what happened—senators rigorously probed and considered Bork’s legal opinions and voted accordingly. So it is with this understanding that we propose, in the spirit of democratic deliberation of which she so eloquently wrote, that Elena Kagan should be borked.

Well then, in the wise words of the Swedish Chef… “Bork! Bork! Bork!”

The Looters need you...

Work harder, lazy people need your money. Entitlement programs are YOUR responsibility.
Work harder, you need to pay for other people's poor decisions. They chose whether or not to do their homework, study, try, go to college, where to live, and therefore the jobs that they have available. It is YOUR responsibility to pay for their lack of health benefits, their lack of retirement savings, THEIR lack of a job. It's your DUTY (insert guilt here) towards your fellow humans.
Work harder, your investment in your education needs to help pay for those who didn't even try. Most of them decided along time ago that it took too much effort to be successful members of society. So much easider to just get by.
Work harder, your investment in your business needs to help pay for those who don't care. You need to work late to keep your business alive so that you can keep paying for those who leave at 3:30 to go home and drink beer not to think about work again until an hour after they show up the next morning.
Work harder.....the Looters need you.

Boycott San Jose!

From a news article that I read today:

"San Jose officials Friday joined those criticizing Arizona's new law that empowers police to detain people suspected of being in the United States illegally.

Critics have assailed the law as a green light for cops to harass Latinos regardless of their citizenship status. Under terms of the Arizona law, even legal immigrants must produce proof of citizenship or legal residence on demand.

San Jose council members Ash Kalra, Madison Nguyen, Sam Liccardo and Rose Herrera jointly called for the city to join in boycotting Arizona by not making official trips to the state or purchasing goods or services from companies based there.

The proposal also calls for San Jose to officially denounce the Arizona law, and it states that the city won't report the immigration status of otherwise law-abiding local residents to federal authorities."

“We cannot pass laws that allow someone to be stopped on the street because of the color of their skin,” said City Councilwoman Rose Herrera."

I say that we BOYCOTT SAN JOSE! Just like other fear mongers they lie. The law does NOT allow anyone to be stopped based on skin color. There is NO RATIONAL REASON to fight this law. When any citizen is stopped for a violation, they are required to provide their proof of citizenship...their driver's license. So stop pretending that this is about anything accept harboring illigal aliens for whatever reason you may have!

Immigration ideas from 1907

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people...'
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
