An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

A new website to draw attention to tons of trash discarded along the Arizona-Mexico border has been launched by state officials hoping to stem the flow of refuse left behind by illegal immigrants making their way into the United States.
The website, azbordertrash.gov, is also seeking volunteers to participate in cleanup efforts along Arizona’s 370-mile border with Mexico.
I have a better idea. Instead of asking legal residents to clean up after the garbage criminal aliens, how ’bout nabbing the SOBs and making THEM clean up their mess? Why are LEGAL taxpayers always having to foot the bill for these pigs?
The same types that whine about the poor pitiful ‘undocumented immigrants’ are the same yahoos who that want to destroy the economy with their “green” nonsense. They are not ‘undocumented’, they are illegal. They are not ‘immigrants’, they are criminals.
Speaking of criminals….aren’t we housing a great many said illegals in the jails and prisons? How about they earn their keep, and clean up the trash?
Excuse me, but when are those pigs NOT considering an attack on the free world?
A coroner gets busted for voter fraud, but all those ACORN scum still get to go about their business. Makes you wonder which party said coroner was associated, doesn’t it.
Jeez! I should certainly hope not! If certain states get themselves into a major financial mess because they don’t have the big ones to say NO to the public unions, it is not my responsibility to dig them out of their own hole!
We need MORE troops and fewer bureaucrats! But try to explain that to a bureaucrat!
Most people have enough sense not to eat their fluoride toothpaste, so why did officials back when I was a young sprout decide that adding fluoride to the water was a good idea? Messing with nature is NEVER a good idea!
It’s so CUTE what the Democrats are doing. How about matching clothes every Monday? (from the comments section)
How is anyone suppose to believe these yahoos are serious about peace when they turn murderous thugs loose? Reckon it’s a real good thing the Israelis take it seriously, eh?
I don’t know….I’d have to say that with an eyewitness, odds are, the animal did murder his girlfriend before cutting her in pieces and spreading them around Mississippi.
To the feminazis: I am NOT ‘equal’ to a male! In some ways, I’m vastly superior…. in others, not so much! We are different! NO ERA!
It’s really sad, and quite dangerous, that there are so many legislators who actually aid and abet CRIMINAL ACTIVITY! They are not ‘immigrants’. An immigrant comes through the front door, after knocking, and being invited in. They are ILLEGAL! As in BREAKING THE LAW!
Here’s a novel concept….how about letting your citizens protect themselves against criminals. I know it’s hard to believe for some folks, but it’s pretty much common knowledge, unless a criminal is completely stupid (which is typically why they are criminals in the first place…can’t make it in the real world), said bad guy doesn’t know who is packing, and who is not, they are less likely to randomly select their target for the criminal activity. Dead bad guys are much better than dead victims.
Taxes over freedom for Tea Party foe
by MARK BARIE
A recent column, authored by one of Bill Clinton’s former speech writers (“Tea Party dangerous to Constitution”) is typical of the inaccurate charges and scaremonger tactics which our critics regularly employ to achieve what they cannot accomplish through civil discourse and reasoned arguments.
Michael Waldman would have you believe that our struggle for lower taxes is an un-American attack on the federal government’s power to tax our income. He implies that opposition to “anchor babies” (children of illegal aliens who are used to obtain immigration status for otherwise illegal family members) is racist because the 10th Amendment was originally instituted to protect the families of slaves.
For good measure, he also argues that our efforts to enforce states’ rights at a time when the federal government is exercising unprecedented control over virtually every aspect of our lives is somehow undemocratic. And he packages all of these silly arguments into feigned concern over what he claims are Tea Party attacks on the United States Constitution.
Today the Bureau of Labor and Statistics released its monthly jobs report showing that the U.S. economy added only 103,000 jobs this December. With the unemployment rate now at 9.4%, this marks the 20th month in a row that the unemployment has been over 9 percent, a post–World War II record. You are going to hear a lot of noise from the White House about how this drop from a 9.8% unemployment rate to 9.4% means the economy is in a strong recovery. This is false. The reality is that the only reason the unemployment rate dropped is because the U.S. labor force decreased by 434,000. More importantly 260,000 Americans dropped out of the labor force entirely. This means that the Obama economy is now driving Americans out of the labor force faster than it is bringing them.
UPDATE: Left in comments -
As for the other comments left by others, T and Amy, your comments will not be published. Why? Because I take issue with snotty childishness.
The top reason Tennessee educators lost their licenses to teach last year was having sex or other inappropriate contact with their students, and many were texting to strike up the relationships.
In one case, Campbell County teacher Derek W. Marlow, 27, bought a prepaid cell phone and gave it to a student at school. The two exchanged about 1,000 messages over two months, and his license was revoked for three years.
Three years? That’s it? The perv should never be allowed to teach again! Ever! Anywhere!
“Technology is making it easier to engage in inappropriate communication with students, and fewer educators are deliberate about how they conduct themselves because it’s easier to say something in a text message than in person,” Tennessee Board of Education attorney Rich Haglund said. “The number of cases where text messaging has facilitated inappropriate relationships has increased.”
What a load of horse manure! You can’t blame technology for the actions of a human being (and I use that term lightly here). The ‘if it feels good, do it’ mentality of the 60s and 70s have permeated every aspect of life, including the public schools. The lack of REAL punishment aids in letting these pervs believe they can get away with such behavior with nothing more than a slap on the hand. It also shows the level of immaturity of the teachers being churned out of the colleges.
The state licenses 70,000 teachers. The Office of Teacher Licensing is considering requiring new applicants and teacher who renew credentials to take online ethics training as in some other states, including Georgia. Louisiana passed a law in 2009 requiring teachers to copy and report to administrators when they text students.
Oh, that’s right…they don’t teach ethics in school anymore, do they. Once upon a time, it was a requirement for many professions, but you can tell by the LACK of ethical behavior in many areas, someone decided it wasn’t needed. And this is what you get! Teachers with NO ethics!
The effects can be devastating for teachers found guilty by judges or the state board.
“I can’t get a job anywhere; it ruined my life completely,” said Robert T. Allen, a Franklin County drama teacher stripped of his license last year by the board for “inappropriate contact” with a student.
In the real world, such predators would end up behind bars. Not ‘teachers’ though. Am I suppose to feel sorry for this ass? Ain’t gonna happen! “IT” didn’t ruin your life…..YOU DID! Try McDonald’s.
