Meet BAMN (By Any Means Necessary)

This “fine”, “upstanding” group of citizens is opposed to Michigan’s MCRI (Michigan Civil Rights Initiative) having gathered enough signatures to have the issue put before the voters.

At age 19, Jennifer Gratz, denied admission to the University of Michigan, fought the university all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. It endorsed her argument that it was an unconstitutional denial of equal protection of the law for the university to add 20 points to the scores of black, Hispanic and Native American applicants. (The maximum score was 150; a perfect 1600 SAT earned just 12 points)

Jennifer Gratz is the Executive Director of the MCRI. We will see the following proposal placed on our ballots this November:

“A proposal to amend the state constitution to ban affirmative action programs that give preferential treatment to groups or individuals based on their race, gender, color, ethnicity or national origin for public employment, education or contracting purposes.”

…with liberty and justice for ALL!

People start to feel like strangers in their own country

When I think about illegal immigration, it’s not just the mere fact these people are here ILLEGALLY. Breaking the laws just by being here- that’s bad enough but what makes it worse is they are here to take our jobs. There are two sides to this tale. American business has a lot to do with this. They want to hire people who don’t expect to be paid a lot of money. While I understand that, I have a hard time coming to terms with the very real fact that by hiring illegals, these businesses are breaking laws too. Two wrongs. And I hate to get into this, but President Bush is going along with this.

There is a resource people can use to find the names of local business who keep this issue alive by hiring illegals.
WE HIRE ALIENS- a relatively new site with a lot of names.

The biggest incentive for illegal aliens to come to the United States is to find work. If there are no employers willing to hire the illegal aliens, then the flood of illegal aliens will subside.

So the purpose of this website is to expose “alleged” employers of illegal aliens. In this effort we need your help. First, if you know of a suspected employer of illegal aliens report them here.

Second, search or browse the “alleged” employers of illegal aliens and email them telling them you will no longer patronize their business. In the same email, make sure they know that you will also tell everyone you know NOT to patronize their business. We’ve got pre-written emails to help you do this.

Third, DO NOT patronize the businesses you see listed here.

Finally, use our website to report these “alleged” employers to the proper authorities. Again, we’ve got emails already written that you can send off at the touch of a button.

I did a search for the state of California and was amazed at how many companies are doing this. I often boycott places that promote things I don’t agree with. It’s high time everyone stayed away from companies who hire illegals. Don’t give me the line of BS about how these jobs are not “wanted” by Americans either. American’s aren’t given a chance to even know about these jobs.

Many businesses are starting to worry about the politics of illegal immigration. Good. They should start to worry as they are a big part of the problem, I have to say.

Here’s another article that outraged me…illegals have an easier time getting home loans than do American citizens! I guess it shouldn’t surprise me, with all these business giving away all those jobs.

November 19, 2005 - For many, it’s the American dream: owning a home. With the recent spike in housing costs, it’s become more difficult for many Valley families to qualify for a home loan. But some local banks are giving out loans, and they don’t even require a social security number.

David seems like your typical first-time homeowner. The house is small, money’s tight. But his family is happy. “It was our dream.” he said. “So it was like our dream became true, finally.”

But getting a loan from the bank almost didn’t happen. An employee from the bank called and said it seemed they had a problem.

The problem was David’s social security number … it’s a fake.

He is undocumented, an illegal immigrant. David thought it was a dead end, but not in California. It’s among a few states where banks are offering mortgages to people who they know are illegal.

And as always there are liberals who want to defend the “rights” of those who enter the country illegally, who use fake documents to steal our jobs and take over our healthcare facilities. This pisses me off.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein stood outside her office one recent afternoon explaining her plan for granting legal status to some farmworkers who had entered the country illegally.
She turned to leave, then beckoned back a departing reporter. “Please don’t use the word `amnesty,”‘ Feinstein said. “It’s not an `amnesty.’ It’s an `earned transition.”‘

Across the Capitol that day, during a testy immigration hearing, Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Edward Kennedy asked Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff how “mass deportations” of illegal immigrants would impact the country.
Experts say the language in this particular debate is becoming increasingly angst-filled because it veils a deep national divide in beliefs over who deserves to be here, and, ultimately, who we are as Americans.

“It’s this sense that people are losing control over their own lives,” said Ira Mehlman, Los Angeles-based spokesman for the Federation for Immigration Reform.

“People wake up and discover half the kids in their children’s class don’t speak English and most of the resources are going to address that problem. People start to feel like strangers in their own country.”

Those enraged by the problem say illegal immigrants are “invading our country,” and “taking jobs away from Americans.” Those on the other side say illegal immigrants are “living in the shadows” and “doing jobs Americans won’t do.”

It seems that everyone is forgetting one key fact: By being here, these people are breaking laws. Without a second thought. Without a concern for the American people. If they’re willing to be here under these cirscumstances, then they would be willing to break any law.

PETA sees a moral dimension to the anticipated pandemic

Of all the pathetic things I hear about…this has to be right up there on the top of my list. I should make a new category called “Give Me A Break!” for this baloney.

(CNSNews.com) - Members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals say they will lie naked in flower-decorated coffins outside the Department of Agriculture in Washington on Wednesday to “remind consumers that an addiction to poultry could lead to a bird-flu pandemic.”

Protesters will raise a banner reading, “Bird Flu Kills: Go Vegetarian,” and they plan to hand out “emergency vegetarian starter kits.”

Using such a potentially serious and devasting virus as a backdrop for a publicity stunt is LOW. I’m surprised PETA isn’t loosing feathers over the mass cullings that have occurred in the past several months.

PETA quoted the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as saying that bird flu can be caught by eating undercooked meat or eggs.

But the CDC also notes that poultry products can be safely eaten, “provided these items are properly cooked and properly handled during food preparation.” According to the CDC, the bird flu virus is sensitive to heat, which means that “normal temperatures used for cooking” will kill the virus.

“Avian influenza is not transmitted through cooked food,” the CDC website specifically says. And it says there is no evidence so far that anyone has become infected after eating “properly cooked poultry or poultry products, even when these foods were contaminated with the H5N1 virus.”

Trust me…birds with H5N1 would not be something ANYONE would ever consider for human consumption. Birds infected with this virus don’t make it to the grinder shop, so to speak.

What is more disturbing, though, is this thought process coming out of PETA:

PETA sees a moral dimension to the anticipated pandemic.

“It’s payback time, with avian flu now showing up as a direct consequence of a very sick and cruel industry,” said PETA Vegan Campaign Director Bruce Friedrich.

“With diseases running rampant in crowded, filthy factory farms, not to mention the known link between meat-eating and heart disease, the safest thing to do with chicken flesh is to avoid it like the plague.”

PETA is among the activist groups that oppose “factory farming,” where birds and other livestock live in conditions that activists describe as cruel and inhumane.

You know…these morons are spoiled idiOts who have no medical or science background, for sure. If they did they would not (ever) joke around about such issues. Pandemic flus are horrible. They kill MILLIONS. The next flu has potential to kill BILLIONS. This didn’t start with birds who were caged up; it started with field chickens in Vietnam…PETA needs to do it’s homework and get the facts right.

Australian hostage in Iraq has been rescued by an Iraqi force backed up by U.S. troops..

Rusty has the details.

You know, I’m dead beat tired today.  But it would do me well, and you too, to remember that no matter how crummy you may feel on any given day, it’s nothing compared to what this man has gone through the last six weeks.

The Iraqi Civil War? Nah, Just In Asshatland

From the Washington Ho’s:

BAGHDAD, April 16 — A group of masked, armed men believed to be Sunni extremists reportedly is threatening to kill a group of Shiite Muslim hostages in a central Iraqi town unless Shiite residents leave their homes, according to a police officer and Shiite Muslim officials.

Many details of the apparently still-evolving situation in Mada’in, a town about 30 southeast of Baghdad, remain unclear, including the number of alleged hostages, how and when they were seized, and how Iraqi police and armed forces are responding.

Abu Musab Zarqawi and his merry band of goatfuckers are once again trying to foment inter-denominational violence in hopes of sparking a civil war in Iraq.  Unfortunately for Mr. Zarcameljockey, the vast majority of Iraqis aren’t buying his particular brand of chickenshit.  Now, you have choices.  You can believe what you are fed through the media, or you can believe what is being written by someone who actually lives there.

Via Iraq The Model:

I’m sure that some "experts" will celebrate this incident and consider it a spark that will ignite the civil war fire they have been hallucinating about.
What such "experts" always fail to notice is that the conflict in Iraq is taking place between the people, the government and the coalition on one side and the extremists and remaining Ba’athists on the other side. It is NOT a people vs. people conflict; it never had and it will never be like that.

I really don’t blame people who live outside Iraq for believing the "experts"; they didn’t live here and they depend on the news to build their opinions.
But I live in Iraq and seen almost every city in it, so I know how thinks work and I know what the people think.
This time, the pathetic terrorists are trying to make it look like a sectarian conflict; it is NOT.

The Iraqis are free.  The Useful Idiots of the world can choose to believe that they are being brutalized at the hands of the Coalition, and that the new, freely elected Iraqi government is a puppet of the U.S.

But not a damn one of them will ever bother to read the likes of Iraq The Model.  Nor would a single one of them have the guts to go to Iraq and see for themselves.  They will, however, march in the streets with megaphones.

And call it courage.
