AZ fights back.......


Let's put this illegal alien issue in its proper prospective, we now have approximately 12 to 15 millions

illegal aliens residing in this nation who are undocumented. In most cases larger than standing armies in

most other nations, and where do their loyalties truly reside? They have already willingly broken US immigration

laws and are a significant population within our prison and welfare systems. My question is where is enforcement?

The Border Patrol is a federal law enforcement agency and a component of Homeland Security. the 20,000 or so

agents are responsible for border enforcement. their duty is to prevent terrorists from entering our nation and deter,

and apprehend illegal human and drug trafficking. It's about time the federal government put a stop to the human

invasion of our southern borders. There is no social investment being made by those who are here to work the system.

Arizona and other border states have stood by silently while State resources are no longer able to care for its

own residents. Tighter laws and deterrence is a first step.

Arizona's war on illegals...........

Arizona is finally doing what the federal government has turned its back on, stemming the flow of millions of illegals mainly from mexico and central america.
And i for one say, it's about time. U.S. Customs and Border Protection are primarily
responsible for immigration and border law enforcment as codified in the Immigration
and Nationality Act. For years now the State of Arizona has asked the Federal Government to take the front line, of what for all intent and purpose be called an
invasion. With growing fiscal problems making it harder to run local, state and federal programs relieving the nation of the burden of social services for millions of illegals is the prudent option to take. This nation was built on law and order, and so it shall endure. Make no mistake immigrants play an important part in the fabric of the American experience. How about making that experience a legal one.

Secret papers reveal Senate 'talks' between Obama and Blagojevich
Secret papers reveal 'talks'
By CHARLES HURT Bureau Chief

WASHINGTON -- Sections of court papers filed by scandal-scarred former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich that were mistakenly made public show a deeper involvement by President Obama in picking his Senate successor and call into question the president's public statements on the case.

According to passages in the papers filed Thursday by Blagojevich's lawyers -- which were blacked out under a judge's order but made visible by a computer glitch -- Obama, then president-elect, spoke directly to the disgraced governor on Dec. 1, 2008.

But just one week later -- on the day Blagojevich was indicted -- Obama told reporters flatly, "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so we were not -- I was not aware of what was happening."

The allegation is just one of a host of thorny claims about Obama that were apparently inadvertently revealed when a blogger found it was possible to read the redacted lines by simply copying and pasting them into a regular text file.

Blagojevich is set to go on trial in June on charges that he tried to sell the Senate seat vacated by Obama. The judge had ordered large sections of the defense team's filing to be blacked out.

The newly revealed sections also contradict Obama's claims that he never discussed favorable legislative action in exchange for a large campaign contribution with his former neighbor, fund-raiser and key supporter Tony Rezko, who has since been convicted of fraud.

Blagojevich's lawyers charge that Rezko has told the feds that, indeed, he did have such conversations with a "public official." The defense believes the official to be Obama.

Also contained in the unredacted papers is a claim that, contrary to his denials, Obama did push longtime friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett for his old Senate seat using a union official as a go-between with Blagojevich.

The filing indicates that the union official has testified to federal investigators about a phone call he had with Obama on the day before he won the presidency in which he indicated that Jarrett "would be a good senator for the people of Illinois and would be a candidate who could win re-election."

The White House has refused to comment on the case.

Ready, aim, disarm: O's terror-friendly plan

What could Obama be thinking in telling the hatemongers that if they threaten the

safety of the American public with bugs, gas and weaponized computers, we'll just

sit idly by, falling like flies, with no threat of nuclear retaliation?

Here's my advice: If you feel your throat getting scratchy and your arms and legs

moving in opposite directions, quickly get to Canada and get some quality health

In the Context of the Constitution..........

Michael Barone's analysis in the NY Post is a true picture of the nature of our nation's political dilemma which

became the very catalyst to American Independence. Progressives have always contended that

without massive government the lives of the working class would never fully realize the American Dream.

While on the other hand Adam Smith's economic principle, holding that the greatest benefit to a society is brought

about by individuals acting freely in a competitive marketplace in the pursuit of their own self-interest is the

un-intented result of what Smith coined, "The Invisible Hand." It is within our nature, not codified with any law

that we lend this "Invisible Hand" to those in need. The generosity of the American spirit comes from knowing

what is right. Of this there is no argument, no debate greater than our history, and self sacrifice as individuals,

and as a nation. As one progressive once stated, 'ask not what your country can do for you.....'

Easter Celebration...........

as a child Easter was a time for family and having to wear that stiff new suit and shoes that made you so uncomfortable you wanted to cry. conflicted
as i was with being just a child not being able go out and play, Easter was a serious happening so i would just put on my game face. on the LES parent's took pride indressing their otherwise little monsters who went around terrorizing each other on every other day but Christmas and Easter.i for one could only wish that i had appreciated what this effort really meant.Before Jesus was turned into a sales slogan and chief saleman he had a very special message for us all. Not necessarily to livethis perfect ideology, but to take pride in everything we said and did, and finally realize that with this crazy world spinning around in our heads we still have and needed each other to live a successful life. And this simple message has seemed to reach far and wide mouth to mouth, ear to ear and guided what has been classified as the best of human nature. So shut off the the damn cell phone and disconnect the
Ipod and look into the faces of those who will really matter when all the chips are
