California Taxpayers are Hit Hard!


1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L.. A. County has 10.2 million people)are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal , whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

A Reality Check!


Letter from the Boss,

As the CFO of this business that employees 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our new President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, I figure that the Clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go.

So, this is what I did. I strolled thru our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I gave it to them.

If you have a better idea, let me know.
Sincerely,
The Boss

Gaffe By Joe Biden #2

Latest Gaffe By President Obama #1

The Media Shines Again!


Ed Freeman
You're an 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.
You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.
Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
He's coming anyway.
And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.
And, he kept coming back.... 13 more times..... And took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.
Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman,died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise, ID ......May God rest his soul.....
I bet you didn't hear about this hero's
passing, but we sure were told a whole
bunch about some Hip-Hop Coward
beating his "girlfriend"
Medal of Honor Winner
Ed Freeman!

Dodd in Full Denial Mode!


Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd said the Obama administration asked him to insert a provision in last month’s $787 billion economic- stimulus legislation that had the effect of authorizing American International Group Inc.’s bonuses.

Dodd, a Connecticut Democrat, said yesterday he agreed to modify restrictions on executive pay at companies receiving taxpayer assistance to exempt bonuses already agreed upon in contracts. He said he did so without realizing the change would benefit AIG, whose recent $165 million payment to employees has sparked a public furor.

Believe Me or Believe Your Eyes?


Christopher Dodd Should Resign!


While the Senate was constructing the $787 billion stimulus last month, Senator Christopher Dodd added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. That amendment provides an “exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009” -- which exempts the very AIG bonuses Dodd and others are now seeking to tax.

The amendment made it into the final version of the bill, and is law.

Separately, Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100, according to www.opensecrets.org.

Octomom giving birth...no kidding!

Obama's "Chicago Way" is not working!.....


Russia could use bases for its strategic bombers on the doorstep of the United States in Cuba and Venezuela to underpin long-distance patrols in the region, a senior air force officer said Saturday.
"This is possible in Cuba," General Anatoly Zhikharev, chief of the Russian air force's strategic aviation staff, told the Interfax-AVN military news agency.

The comments were the latest signal that Moscow intends to project its military capability in far-flung corners of the globe despite a tight defence budget and hardware that experts consider in many respects outdated

Do we have confidence in Obama?

In 1991, when Gallup first started asking the public about its confidence in the institution of the presidency, 71 percent of those surveyed said they had a great deal or quite a bit of confidence in the presidency. Now, only 26 percent report that level of confidence.

Maxine Waters, the House Hypocrite!

Congressional Democrat Maxine Waters, a longtime controversial congresswoman from California, has close ties to One United Bank.
Waters and her husband have both held financial stakes in the bank.

Until recently, her husband was a director. At the same time, Ms. Waters has publicly boosted OneUnited's executives and criticized its government regulators during congressional hearings. Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.
Her involvement isn't new.

Waters has detailed her financial ties in a series of federal disclosure forms and has been vocal in public in support of the bank. Those ties, however, have received little public attention. Nor is it well known how the influential lawmaker has over the years acted to support the bank and its executives.
Such potential conflicts of interest are more serious as the banking system's crisis has led the government to take an increasingly active role in overseeing financial institutions, including OneUnited. The financial-services committee on which Ms. Waters sits oversees banking issues, and the lawmaker is a potential future chairman

Come Fly w/Me for $300 Million


Just last week, this brand new Airbus 340-600 pictured above, with zero air miles, and costing $300 Million US dollars, was sitting in its hangar inToulouse, France , when enters the seven member Arab flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT).


They were to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine run-ups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi .


The ADAT crew taxied this A340-600 to the landing strip where they then throttled all four engines to maximum power. NOT a bright idea. Not having read the aircraft's operations manual, they had no clue just how light an empty A340-600 really is.


The takeoff warning horn started blaring away in the cockpit because these witless- wonders had all 4 engines at full throttle. The computers thought they were trying to take off but the aircraft prevented such due to the flaps & slats not being in their proper setting allowing for safe takeoff.Enter one of the quick witted ADAT crew who decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity Sensor thus silencing the annoying alarm. NOT a good idea...


This caused the aircraft to think it was airborne and possibly about to land.As a result, the computers automatically released all brakes which set the aircraft rocketing forward. The ADAT crew had no idea that this is a design safety feature preventing pilots from landing the aircraft with brakes applied.Non of the witless seven-man crew thought to throttle back the engines from their max power setting resulting in the $300 million brand-new A340-600 to crash, head first, a mile later into a blast barrier, totaling the aircraft !


There has been a news blackout in France on the subject of this lil' Boo-Boo. Coverage of the story was deemed too insulting to Muslims!!


Alas, the story and photos are starting to leak out.

Bill Sammon Quotes James Carville wanted George Bush to FAIL!


The press never reported that Democratic strategist James Carville said he wanted President Bush to fail before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But a feeding frenzy ensued when radio host Rush Limbaugh recently said he wanted President Obama to fail.


By Bill Sammon

On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, just minutes before learning of the terrorist attacks on America, Democratic strategist James Carville was hoping for President Bush to fail, telling a group of Washington reporters: "I certainly hope he doesn't succeed."
Carville was joined by Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg, who seemed encouraged by a survey he had just completed that revealed public misgivings about the newly minted president.
"We rush into these focus groups with these doubts that people have about him, and I'm wanting them to turn against him," Greenberg admitted.
The pollster added with a chuckle of disbelief: "They don't want him to fail. I mean, they think it matters if the president of the United States fails."

Republicans Turned Democrats!

The earmark-mania is not unique to either party -- both Democrats and Republicans contributed to what Taxpayers for Common Sense estimates is 8,570 disclosed earmarks worth $7.7 billion in the bill that would fund the government through the end of the fiscal year.
But the Republican crossovers in particular have a lot at stake in the package.
Two of the three Republicans on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's "definite" list have authored 129 total earmarks worth $190 million, according to an updated list from Taxpayers for Common Sense.
Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., is actually the second-biggest earmarker, according to the list, with 64 earmarks worth $114 million. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., is a few notches down, with 65 earmarks worth $76 million.
Both are expected to support the omnibus bill -- along with Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, who has zero earmarks.
