uncontrolled illegal mexican immigration is absolute insanity

How our flag flys now............

The truth is that rampant, unchecked illegal immigration is a really, really horrible thing and it is permanently destroying many areas of the United States. The U.S. government has refused to control the U.S. border with Mexico for decades, and this has allowed millions of mexican criminals, drug dealers and gang members to cross freely into the United States.

MIDDLE CLASS REPUBLICANS: THE NATION'S GREATEST SUCKERS

Wednesday, May 11, 2011, Posted by michaeloangeloraphaelo.blogspot.com

Middle class Republicans are the nation's greatest suckers.

Confused and depressed they ignored Democratic benefactors.

Many have lost their dreams, homes, savings and jobs.

What they have left the Reagan/Bush rat pack robs.

many americans seem to be bigots

This picture is of a real sign

These used to be quite common near San Diego, CA freeways.

So many ignorant mexicans running into California that drivers had to be warned to slow down for them.

Don't need the signs anymore. Mexicans are criminals here and now they get a "path to citzenship". Mexicans now have "sanctuary cities" to go to, and comic books and other mexicans that teach them how to cheat our system.

Lady Gaga & illegal immigration

Thom commended Lady Gaga for her condemnation of SB 1070 on today's show. She criticizes our immigration laws while in Mexico, a country with one of the most stringent and racist immigration laws on the planet. How ironic is that? I am a huge fan of Thom, but I disagree with his take on the topic.

What is a Teacher/CEO worth?

A CEO is worth about 30 times what the lowest person in the organization is worth. Also, regarding CEO pay I'm fed up with CEOs getting their pay in stock, hold it a year for long term capital gains and pay only 15% capital gain taxes on this income! This is a travesty! I'm to the point of wondering what other ways corporations can "game" the system so highly paid individuals get off by not paying their fair share. I think if a CEO gets $400,000 and about $1Million in stock, or stock options, he/she should have to report income of $1,400,000.

difference: Neuremberg & Bin Laden

Hi Thom:

I am old enough to remember WWll and the Neuremberg trials--after WWll, there were many people all over the world--including America--who thought the Hitler crimes were made up or exagerated. Truman and many European leaders wanted people to see and hear what Hitler had actually done. The trials were done, first of all, to educate and inform the doubters and those who would deny the crimes. To the best of my knowledge, no one denies what Osama Bin Laden has wrought!

THIS JUST IN:

Expressing skepticism about the government's version of events, especially when ZERO evidence is offered to support their claims, does not make one a "conspiracy theorist." It just means you're not willing to simply take their word for it, especially when that word has proven to be worthless time and time and time again. This country desperately needs to drop the ridiculous politics and get real.

The Customer is Always Wrong(ed)

A Capital Idea Part 69: The Customer is Always Wrong(ed)

When I was growing up, a fairly commonly heard phrase was "The customer is always right." By this, it was meant that business people are supposed to acquiesce to the wishes of the customers or at least attempt to please their customers. Service for the customer was to be the number one goal of the customer-business person relationship.

So. I guess non-violence as a national philosophy is out.

MUSLIMS IN USA

Its true Many are fearful of Muslims . Just like in WW 2 when we put Japanese in camps.- horrible. But our primitive instincts take over when we are afraid. Logical thinking goes out the window. This will abate at some point. But the vivid Memory of 9 / 11 and people jumping out to their deaths and millions of Muslims enjoying the sight of innocent women,children, dying sticks in our brains .USA celebrating BIN laden being killed is in no way comparable... Bin laden was an evil murderer of .

Westboro protestors get what they want

Invited to speak at another high school in the area, members of the Westboro Baptist Church decided to make efficient use of their time in Columbus by staging a non-descript protest outside of the high school where I work. Holding true to form, the church let everyone know that they were coming well in advance so that they could stir up the community and get what they really wanted… attention.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
