  • Where Would You Want Your $24 Billion in Taxes to Go?

    I'm not a cold-hearted person, in fact, I wish to goodness I could reach out and help every person on earth that needed my help, but I can't. So I try to do the best I can to help those here in America, the folks that are put on the back-burner, ignored, passed over, taxed to death and some can't even pay to be buried.

    I have watched many being turned down in our hospitals because they could not afford Health Ins. Most of these folks do make a good living, but they don't make enough to pay for Health Care and do not qualify for any Government Aide, go figure.

    I have also seen people that should be taking Precription Medicine but they buy Over the Counter in hopes that they will get better.

    JMHO: $24 Billion would go a long way in helping our people here at home in many ways. Why in G-D's name do we allow the American Government to ignore it's own in favor of a nation that breaks all of our laws, they are not intitled to our Tax dollars when we have Americans that need this money so desperately.

    "What is a Dutch rub?"

    That's when you rub your fist rapidly back and forth across the top of someone's head

    We call that a "Noogie", I think that Berry could use a good "*itch Slap" or would that be "Butch Slap". We have some nerve for even allowing this "racist" to sit on this committee, she stated back in 99' that "Civil Rights were never meant for the white-man", go figure!

    "I personally know of at least 6 victims of illegal aliens. These victims range from having loved ones slaughtered by drunk illegal aliens on our highways, to stabbing injuries, to robberies, to common home burglaries."

    Joe Hadenug, I have sent you a private reply, I hope you receive it soon.

    "In an interview with The Associated Press, Fox said people may have unrealistic expectations about how fast he can transform Mexico."

    I think he meant "Transfer Mexico" (to America).

    "There is no state of Southern Colorado. So much for Truxillo."

    I watched the little Prick on Hannity & Colmbs last night, he's still a small turd floating around with even smaller turds.

    "Some seven men had survived the general carnage and... they were brought before Santa Anna. Among them... was the naturalist Davy Crockett... Santa Anna... ordered his execution... Though tortured before they were killed, these unfortunates died without complaining and without humiliating themselves before their torturers."

    Several professors at the University of New Mexico and a prominent local Hispanic activist were contacted for comment on UNM Professor Charles Truxillo's (a guest on Hannity & Colmbs just yesterday) concept for a new Hispanic nation called the Republic of the North. The professors were asked in particular about Truxillo's contention that U.S. states retain the right to secede. Truxillo said the states had that right under the Articles of Confederation of 1777, in which each state retained its own "sovereignty, freedom and independence." He said the Articles of Confederation were not superseded in that regard by the U.S. Constitution of 1787 and added that, although the North's victory settled the question of secession militarily, it was never resolved by court ruling.

    "The bottom line: What's possible is what people want to be possible. If five states wanted to secede and the rest of the country wanted to let them go, it could happen." ( Daniel Feller, professor of history)

    But Charles could very well be right. It could happen. There are any number of political scenarios that could make it happen. But it would take Mexican-Americans getting organized enough to do it. "I've studied lots of civilizations. The United States is just like any other empire. It's not going to live forever. Eventually it will break down because of stresses." (Juan Jose Peña, Hispanic activist and vice chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable)

    The Republic of the North -- he predicts its creation as "an inevitability" -- would include all of the present U.S. states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, plus southern Colorado." (Charles Truxillo, a professor of Chicano studies at the University of New Mexico,)

    "If your screename is accurate, you've probably been aware of this type of behavior for a while. The next stage after garden gnomes is usually plastic flamingoes and gazing balls. :-)"

    Screename is very correct, but I wouldn't have a "pink" ornament of anykind in our garden, let alone a flamingo. These statues are very heavy ceramic and painted gray, kind of nice. And BTW, the pond wall sits about 4ft off the ground and about 31/2ft of water, we are getting ready to do the top edge. Thinking about making it wide enough to sit.

    Thank you Oldeconomybuyer for this post, we just happen to be doing quite a bit of work on our patio. Would anyone have any sugestions on how to spif up a small, round brick pond. We built it after seeing someone that spent a fortune for theirs, ours we did ourselves. It is about 2ft deep and we will put some sort of fountain in the middle. My husband wants to put those ugly little statues of leprecauns (spelled wrong I know) around the top edges of this pond, he's bought 2 already. He said he was going to cement them there, what do you think? Anyone here like this fantacy idea of his?

    "CONGRESSIONAL IMMIGRATION REFORM CAUCUS' PETITION TO PRESIDENT OVERWHELMS WHITE HOUSE EMAIL SYSTEM"

    Thank you fuzzy122, it is going to take the people, serious people, to get our president to understand where we stand on this issue. I still remember the words he used after one of his speeches, they were not his words, we all know who uttered them "LETS ROLL". I took what our president said to heart, he has got to talk to us.

    "Frankly, they can have the border states if they want...but I would demand a few conditions"

    Why would you be willing to give up one inch of your country to "illegals". Did they win it in a fight you had we knew nothing of? America is for anyone that wants to come here and call it their home, legally, but it belongs to no one here to "Give Away", I mean no dis-respect, but I one who would fight till I died to keep this great nation just as our fore-fathers did, but maybe I am a minority now, who knows? You only give up when it is the last resort.

    "Instead of supporting this nation, he is supportive of Fox's zaniness. He is supposed to be defending America, not Mexico."

    I'm just as confused as the next person at the behavior of President Bush. I listened to Netunyahu tonight again and this poor man is stumped by our presidents easy going attitude toward Arafat. We have got to get President Bush to talk to us, let us know what he is thinking, if he has given up, then where does that leave his people?

    "This should be the Second American-Mexican War, but our leaders have decided to give it to them without a fight."

    I like to think that President Bush has alternate plans of his own to not give in, but I think 'WE THE PEOPLE' should let him know where we stand, because if we are not behind him and let him know what we want, what is he to do? After all, that is what America is, the People, this is our nation, isn't it?

    "The fact is that the Mexicans will only attack us, whether thorough illegal immigration or militarily, if we are weak. In that case, we deserve what we get."

    I have spoken to the native Americans in my family, they agree. We took it, we were stronger, they would have done the same, and if we lose it, we deserve it, it is up to us. Did we raise our children to be winners or whinners? Myself, I pray we raised Fighters, could you imagine living any other way besides the way we do. We are the greatest nation on earth, we need to show it instead of giving up, our ancestors would never give an inch, I like to think we would not either.

    "I got into an email flame war with the morons at Aztlan.net, and they gave up after a couple of rounds. I highly recommend others do the same; they seem to take things very personally. "

    I do the same at times, I just like for them to know that there are still some here who will not give up so easely! Below is an address you could let another butt-head know how you feel, and a little on the whacko I wrote to.

    Roberto Martinez: "He’s (Fox) more liberal in his way of thinking. He’s not very practical because he can’t influence U.S. policy, but at least he’s progressive enough to see that the only way people are going to stop dying at the border is to be able to work in the United States legally. The ones who are already here, they want a general amnesty."

    "We get a lot of calls from around the world. People are appalled that it’s been allowed to go this long. Can you imagine if 100, much less 600 U.S. citizens were dying crossing the border into Mexico or Canada. What would the U.S. do? They would solve the problem overnight. For some reason or other these lives are not important to them. They are not a priority".

    Give this American Basher a big American hello!!

    "It seems, without exception, that these hardcore Aztlan types not only identify with the Palestinians, but they avidly support the wanton murder of Israeli innocents (usually women and children)."

    I have heard this statement a couple of times, comparing themselves with Palestinians, very disturbing.
