Illegal Aliens Unite! Congresssman Luis Guitierrez Coming to Woodburn!

The silver tongued chief agitator for illegal alien amnesty is coming to Woodburn at the end of the month! 
Will citizens be invited? 

H/T 5th Listener The Conservative Hammer.
Let’s see just recently the amnesty congressman went after Senator Marco Rubio whose family escaped communist Cuba. Poor Guitierrez, he just doesn’t understand the term “illegal.”  Here.

Obama: Give Me Your Money!

I get begathon letters from these guys and the MoveOn.commies every day and they sound more and more desperate every day. Here’s the latest from the Barack Obama Beggars. Look at this phony line!

We didn’t get here doing that, and we’re not going to start now. We’re running a different kind of campaign. We don’t take money from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs — we never have, and we never will.

We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford — and I want to spend time with a few of you.

So if you make a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $3 or more today:

The man whose face appears next to the dictionary definition of crony capitalism has the juevos to say this:

We don’t take money from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs — we never have, and we never will.

 
You don’t need to take money from lobbyists when you’re taking money from their bosses, right, Barack? From the Unions? How about when you meet with them down the street…?

The Obama administration has met with lobbyists all the time and get benefits from these guys all the time. They meet with lobbyists in another building so they can say they never meet with lobbyists in the white house. Apparently SEIU, UAW lobbyists don’t count.

at least four lobbyists who’ve been to the conference rooms just off Lafayette Square tell POLITICO they had the distinct impression they were being shunted off to Jackson Place — and off the books — so their visits wouldn’t later be made public.

Obama’s administration has touted its release of White House visitors logs as a breakthrough in transparency, as the first White House team to reveal the comings and goings around the West Wing and the Old Executive Office Building.

The Jackson Place townhouses are a different story.

There are no records of meetings at the row houses just off Lafayette Square that house the White House Conference Center and the Council on Environmental Quality, home to two of the busiest meeting spaces. The White House can’t say who attended meetings there, or how often. The Secret Service doesn’t log in visitors or require a background check the way it does at the main gates of the White House.

Which Just Goes to Show You…

From the WSJ:

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has surged to a clear lead in the Republican race for the presidential nomination, but his party’s attacks on President Barack Obama’s economic stewardship have yet to shake the president’s lead over the GOP, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

At the same time, rising anxieties over the economy continue to erode the political environment for the president, pointing to a tight re-election fight.

The poll of 1,000 adults, conducted between June 9 and 13, put Mr. Obama’s approval rating at 49%, where it was in April, before Osama bin Laden’s killing had helped nudge it up to 52% in May. Forty-six percent said they disapproved of the job Mr. Obama is doing, a five-point jump from May.

Mt Tabor Reservoir Drained After Man Admits Urinating In It.

AAt the same time the Portland Water Bureau is agitating for covers for the reservoirs we hear about this story of a man caught on tape peeing in the reservoir. As my husband said when our toddler peed in the bathtub for the umpteenth time, “parts per million, dear.”
The reaction comes in:
How about building a WALL!!!that they can’t PEE over! Surely they can build one for less than $600,000!!!
Same concept as the border walls.

How long has Oregonians been drinking treated water from Mt Tabor?? Decades.
 
What is going on? Five bucks says this sudden alarm is to prepare Portlanders for the big tax/fee increase to cover the resevoir, only to have the funds funneled to Sam Adam’s bike path or lightrail projects. Period. Wasn’t it Dan Salzman who said, “The water budget is not Sam Adam’s credit card.” 

 
Quick! Sue them to stop the realease of contaminated water!
 
What happens when a bird flies over and drops its load??? Or a flock?? Sounds a little like job justification or something along those lines. Jean

Troops to Brass: Get Rid of the Beret

H/T Ty
Berets are a sweaty mess the rank and file have told the brass.
Elite forces will still have the tan berets to signify Rangers and the maroon to signify Airborne or the famous green beret for the Army Special Forces. See the story here.

The rest of the troops will go with the “patrol cap.”
The Pentagon is also transitioning back to dress uniforms instead of combat uniforms which they did following 9/11.

Plastic Bag Show Down

“This is about a direct competitor making false and misleading claims within the marketplace. When ChicoBag is making these claims, it directly benefits Chico.”

Rick Kurnit, a lawyer specializing in claims made under the federal Lanham Act prohibiting false and misleading advertising, indicated the plastic bag manufacturers may not have an easy time of it, even if Mr. Keller’s claims prove to be exaggerated.

Scott Walker’s Victory in the Wisconsin Supreme Court

Well what do you know? The Wisconsin Constitution isn’t an economic suicide pact after all.

Acting with unusual speed, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the reinstatement of Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial plan to end most collective bargaining for tens of thousands of public workers.
The court found that a committee of lawmakers was not subject to the state’s open meetings law, and so did not violate that law when it hastily approved the collective bargaining measure in March and made it possible for the Senate to take it up. In doing so, the Supreme Court overruled a Dane County judge who had halted the legislation, ending one challenge to the law even as new challenges are likely to emerge.
