Worries for Illegals ...

The Census bureau is worried about the Feds doing raids during the census upcoming in 2010. They think that because of raids, ILLEGALS might hide and not be counted.

Really? Can I ask you something? WHO CARES? The Census Bureau should inform the Feds of every ILLEGAL they count on their census so they can round them up that much easier.

It's a sad day when CRIMINALS have more rights in this country than the citizens do.
WASHINGTON - Immigration officials sharpened their message a day after being coy about whether they would agree to halt enforcement raids during the 2010 census. "We won't entertain any request to scale back our efforts," Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Kelly Nantel said Friday.

Census officials had planned to speak with immigration agents about curbing enforcement during the population count, the Census Bureau's second-ranking official said in an interview earlier this week.

Raids during the population count would make an already distrustful group even less likely to cooperate with government workers who are supposed to include them in the headcount, Deputy Director Preston Jay Waite had said.

When asked Thursday if the immigration enforcement agency would consider suspending raids during the census, spokeswoman Pat Reilly said, "If we were, we wouldn't talk about it." (link)

Notice the wiggle quote at the end. We won't know if they will do it until after it is done.

Patriotic poem/rap by a U.S. Marine

I found this posted on a forum that I frequent. Then I selfishly posted it on Digg and now I am shamelessly promoting that post. :)

It's good to see a right leaning story on the Digg.com front page every now and then. (hint hint)

For those of you that would prefer the direct URL: http://www.badassmarine.com/story.php?title=YouTube_-_BadAss_Marine-1

Either way, it's really moving.

RIP

Merv, a household name for many in the world (especially the US) for the past few decades:
LOS ANGELES — Merv Griffin, who went from big-band era crooner to fabulously successful TV talk show host before making a fortune as the creator of two of television's most popular game shows and then parlaying that into a billion-dollar hotel empire, died Sunday. He was 82.

Griffin died of prostate cancer, according to a statement from his the family that was released by Marcia Newberger, spokeswoman for The Griffin Group/Merv Griffin Entertainment. Griffin was recently hospitalized for a recurrence of the disease, which had been treated successfully more than 10 years ago. (link)

He was an icon and one of the great entertainers of his time. Prayers go out to the family and friends that he's leaving behind.
