-Switchboard, from NRDC :: David Doniger's Blog :: The American Power Act: “First Read” of the Kerry-Lieberman Climate and Energ *Hat tip to Lake Lady http://the-classic-liberal.com/maurice-strong/ - This guy was in on the ground floor with the Chicago Climate Exchange [which was just sold to an international company] and he's got UN power.......and he's a bud of Al Gore, who just increased his carbon foot print by purchasing a 9 million dollar beachfront spread in Monticeto, CA. I guess he's no longer worried about arctic ice melting and flooding our coastlines. I despise them all!And now our ever inventive government has renamed the cap and trade bill "The American Power Act," and that prick Lieberman is behind it.
Since my letter to the Los Angeles City Council members seems to have been such a crowdpleaser, I figured I would post it here too below. And also here is a search page with products from Arizona to support them...products made in arizona - Google Search
L.A. City Council,
Who do you dimwits think you are? There isn't a more ridiculous, corrupt and incompetent city council on earth, than ours in the city of L.A. Isn't it bad enough that you have bankrupted Los Angeles? Now you want to hurt Arizona too?
We, the people of Lost Angeles, have no intention of boycotting Arizona! They are doing the job elected Federal officials won't do! Get it? We applaud them. Their economy is now going to BOOM as all the illegals leave and stop sucking their economy dry, while our state will continue to circle the toilet, thanks to incompetent dumbasses like YOU.
We, the people, will be holding a BUYCOTT of Arizona....we will buy all products made in Arizona, and will all change our vacation plans and will head out to Arizona because why waste any more of our money on a sinking ship like Los Angeles?
AND since I know one of the Arizona State Representatives, I am going to have HIM start a BOYCOTT OF LOS ANGELES. In fact, I think I will put that up on my blog and pass it around nationwide.
And we will remember how you voted in the NEXT ELECTION and oust you, you useless dimwits.
-New York to Grant Pardons to Help Criminal Aliens Evade Deportation *Hat tip to Carolyn Last week, New York Governor David Paterson announced he would soon begin to grant pardons to criminal aliens to help them avoid deportation. The highly unusual move places Governor Patterson at odds with the Obama administration, which has focused its removal efforts solely on criminal aliens. Ironically, Paterson announced the new policy during his speech at Law Day at the New York Court of Appeals. (See Law Day Transcript, May 3, 2010). To execute his new policy, Governor Paterson is establishing a Special Immigration Pardoning Board, consisting of five members, to review individual cases over several weeks. Paterson’s office expects an influx of hundreds of new pardon applications by the end of the year. (Associated Press, May 3, 2010). Governor Paterson said he was moved to grant pardons after having pardoned a Chinese immigrant for a series of muggings committed as a teenager. Nevertheless, Paterson insisted that his office was “separating these cases from ones where there are egregious crimes.” (The New York Times, May 3, 2010). With respect to public safety, Paterson said, “[T]o be sure, there are some individuals whose crimes are egregious or who pose a threat to public safety….But there are others in which delineation is far less clear. In those cases, our national immigration laws do not permit for any redress or mitigating circumstances. But in New York, we think differently. In New York, we believe in renewal.” (See Law Day Transcript, May 3, 2010). Open borders advocates hailed Governor Paterson’s decision, but immigration enforcement proponents criticized the move. “There are people out there, maybe the governor included, who don’t want to deport anybody, even people who have committed crimes,” said Jan Ting, a professor at Temple University Law School, and a former assistant immigration commissioner. “I understand the impulse, but it’s an impulse that leads to open borders.” (The New York Times, May 3, 2010).
