Take 1 minute - 38 seconds to watch this... Recently the President announced that over the next 90-days he is going to work to cut 100-Million dollars of spending out of the Federal Budget.

A college student explains the presidents economics plan. VERY well done! This is worth spending one minute and thirty eight seconds to watch!

This video imagines the budget as $100 in pennies to provide the answer. (Thanks to Bob Aldrich for this excellent headsup! - JWD) - Full Article Source

An American Citizen's Response to 'Americas rich muslim heritage'

Barack OBAMA, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's story." This response has been printed all over the internet. I'm not sure where it first originated, although I did try to find out.

Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?

Declaration of Independence?

Bill of Rights?

Didn't think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England? No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.

Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?

The letter to Obama goes on reminding the President that there were no Muslims here during the Civil Rights Era and that there are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims standing or walking side-by-side with Martin Luther King, Jr..

It reminds Obama that Muslims were not here during our country's Woman's Suffrage Era and that in the Islamic culture, women remain subservient and are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to men outside the family.

The writer asks where the Muslims were during WWII, then answers that they were aligned with Adolf Hitler.

Then the writer reminds the President that on September 11, 2001, Muslims flew airplanes into the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon, and were stopped by an airplane full of people in Pennsylvania and killed nearly 3,000 people.

He also reminds Obama that afterward, Muslims rejoiced in the Middle East, and that we saw the footage on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other stations. The writer adds:

Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims whose asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America. Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America. - Full Article Source

How many illegal aliens are in the U.S.?

KeelyNetImagine recovering 10-20 million (or more) jobs for legal citizens which are currently LOST to illegals from all countries - Our illegal immigration numbers are based on an estimated twenty million illegal aliens having been present in our nation as of January 1, 2004.

The Tucson sector Border Patrol union local 2544 on the number of illegal aliens in our nation: "There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be much higher and the numbers increase every day because our borders are not secure (no matter what the politicians tell you - don't believe them for a second)".

In agreement with Senator McCain, we believe that an increase of 10,000 total additional illegal aliens added to the United States population each day. This reflects figures that include illegal aliens successfully entering our nation combined with those who overstay their visas. We are of the educated opinion that we are conservatively low in our estimation.

President George W. Bush and then Secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, used a figure of "8-12 million" illegal aliens in December 2003. Other reports - including one recently released by the Pew Hispanic Center and figures used by the Center for Immigration Studies quoting 10 - 11 million illegal aliens present in the U.S. - rely heavily on U.S. Census data that many, we at TAR included, believe to be incomplete, inaccurate and artificially low.

An independent study of the underground economy released in January 2005 by the Wall Street financial firm Bear Stearns, The Underground Labor Force is Rising to the Surface, produced estimates of 18-20 million illegal aliens present in the United States.

(Estimates vary from 12-15 million legal citizens are unemployed in 2010.)

The Arizona legislation, signed April 23 by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, is similar to Reglamento de la Ley General de Poblacion — the General Law on Population enacted in Mexico in April 2000, which mandates that federal, local and municipal police cooperate with federal immigration authorities in that country in the arrests of illegal immigrants.

Here's a Thought
Let's adopt Mexico's laws

All of those criticizing Arizona's new anti-immigration law are absolutely correct! It is so unfair! Instead of mimicking existing federal law like it does now, Arizona should enact laws similar to Mexico's. By applying the same standards to illegal immigration as Mexico, Arizona and the U.S. as a whole should:

1. make illegal immigration a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison;

2. deported illegals that re-enter should be imprisoned for 10 years;

3. visa violators sentenced to six years;

4. helping illegal immigrants would be a felony; and

5. deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to economic or national interests and those who are not "physically or mentally healthy" or lack the "necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents.

I haven't heard a single charge of racism concerning Mexican immigration policy, so logic would follow that (if they are so happy with the immigration laws in their country, they will be equally happy with their own countries laws applied to them as illegal immigrants in the US), then all of the current critics of Arizona's law could be happy. It's a win-win situation! - M.J. Lewis
