A New Fairness Doctrine

We should start by requiring that every broadcast television news show be co-anchored by both a liberal and conservative; and all major newspaper staff be evenly divided. Not much chance of that happening. Nor should it in a free country .....I think Air America might have had a shot if its target audience hadn’t already been served so well by many in the mainstream media. But regardless, giving the government veto power over radio stations' programming decisions is wrong. I don't think forcing the one sector of the media where conservatives have a clear voice to provide equal time to liberals is the American way. At the very least, it has a chilling effect on station owners.

The other night we watched a movie called, "Flags of our Fathers." During the movie, I pointed out the radio broadcast of "Tokyo Rose."

She had the best music on her station. During World War II; the Japanese developed a way to demoralize the American forces. Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work.

They gave the script to their famous broadcaster "Tokyo Rose" and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways. The Japanese hoped it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale.

What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

1. Your President is lying to you. 2. This war is illegal. 3. You cannot win the war.

Does this sound familiar today?

It is because we are being bombarded by Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, Tokyo Rosie, etc., and they have picked up the same message and are broadcasting it on Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops.

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they demoralize them. Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too.

"The American Indians found out what happens when you don't control immigration"


OK-FOLLOW THEIR LEAD

Oklahoma's Governor Brad Henry has signed a sweeping immigration reform
bill:


House Bill 1804, that its sponsor believes will go a long way in
dealing with the illegal alien problem in the state.

House Bill 1804 was passed by overwhelming majorities in both the
House and Senate of the Oklahoma Legislature. The measure's sponsor,
State Representative Randy Terrill, says the bill has four maintopical
areas: it deals with identity theft; it terminates public assistance
benefits to illegals; it empowers state and local police to enforce
federalimmigration laws; and it punishes employers who knowingly hire
illegal aliens.

Oklahoma is no longer "O.K." for illegal aliens, Terrill observes.
"When you put everything together in context," he contends, "the bottom
line is illegal aliens will not come here if there are no jobs waiting
for them, they will not stay here if there is no government subsidy,
and they certainly won't stay here if they know that if they ever
encounter our state and local law enforcement officers, they will be
physically detained until they're deported. And that's exactly what
House Bill 1804 does."

The Oklahoma legislator is pleased the bill he sponsored into law
was signed by Governor Henry and believes it will go a long way to curb
the illegal immigration problem in the state. "I would remind people
that states are separate sovereigns in our federal system," Terrill
points out. "Anyone who doesn't understand that needs to go back and
take an American federal government class in college," he says.

As a result of that sovereignty, the Oklahoma lawmaker insists, "we
have as much right - in fact, I would argue, a responsibility - to
protect our taxpayers against that sort of egregious waste, fraud and
abuse
as the federal government should have a responsibility to protect
that international border, but doesn't do that."

Terrill says as long as the federal government refuses to do its
job of protecting the international borders of the United States,
states like Oklahoma must take action to deal with the problem that is
costing taxpayers in the state $200 million a year in public benefits,
law enforcement costs, and other resources.

In case you didn't think it possible:

Racism from Latinos


CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage

Consumers don't want expensive produce

Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs

But the bottom line is cheap laborThe phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie ~ there is no such thing as "cheap labor."

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children.

He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour.

At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent

He qualifies for food stamps

He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school

He requires bilingual teachers and books

He qualifies for relief from high energy bills

If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI.

Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare.

All of this is at that taxpayer's expense.

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.

Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour Left after paying their bills and his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime,graffiti and trash clean-up.



Americans overwhelmingly support voter ID. Are they all racists? Wednesday, June 13, 2007 12:01 a.m. EDT
Appointments to the Federal Election Commission rarely draw attention. But at a confirmation hearing today, there's likely to be some fireworks over Hans von Spakovsky.
Mr. von Spakovsky has already amassed an 18-month long, largely uncontroversial record at the FEC as a recess appointment. But that's not likely to stop Senate Democrats from grilling him about his time at the Justice Department during President Bush's first term. The aim will be to portray him as a partisan who mishandled voting rights cases. Exhibit A will be his support for state voter ID laws.
For months, since the firing of eight U.S. Attorneys sparked a mini scandal, Democrats have insisted that the president has improperly politicized the Justice Department. Specifically, the accusation is that, under Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, DOJ has pursued a political agenda by enforcing laws to curb voter fraud.
Last week, Judiciary Committee Democrats held a hearing aimed in part at discrediting a 2005 Justice lawsuit seeking to force Missouri to cull ineligible voters from its rolls. But while the Missouri case was thrown out by a district judge, similar Justice lawsuits in Indiana and New Jersey led to voter rolls being cleaned up.....

Children of Jihad vs. Children of the West & Adolescent Intellectuals

Children of Jihad vs. Children of the West
By Michelle MalkinWednesday, June 6, 2007
"What is your most lofty aspiration? Death for the sake of Allah!" That is the charming verse kindergarteners in a Hamas classroom chanted last week during their graduation ceremony. The girls dressed in butterfly costumes. The boys donned camouflage, black masks, green bandanas and toy semi-automatic rifles. The video aired by the Middle East Media Research Institute (www.memritv.org) features the children wielding swords and guns while mimicking paramilitary exercises. And how are we preparing the children of the West to defend themselves against these little soldiers of Allah? Scene 1: In New York City, one nursery school dragged 3-year-old toddlers to the office of Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx/Westchester/Rockland), where they sang "It's a Small World" around a 12-foot "Tree of Peace." The New York Press reported last week... http://www.townhall.com/Columnists/MichelleMalkin/2007/06/06/children_of_jihad_vs_children_of_the_west

Adolescent IntellectualsBy Thomas SowellTuesday, June 5, 2007
To a small child, the reason he cannot do many things that he would like to do is that his parents won't let him. Many years later, maturity brings an understanding that there are underlying reasons for doing or not doing many things, and that his parents were essentially conduits for those reasons.
The truly dangerous period in life is the time when the child has learned the limits of his parents' control, and how to circumvent their control, but has not yet understood or accepted the underlying reasons for doing and not doing things. This adolescent period is one that some people -- intellectuals especially -- never outgrow.

Al Gore’s new book, The Assault on Reason, has definitively established one fact: Al Gore is still the sorest loser in American politics.
