Subject of Us Magazine Cover Story
A HUNDRED DIFFERENT (ILLEGAL) DEBS: The Charlotte Observer is doing a three-part series on how exactly the illegals get in, get jobs and hide in plain site. I think the media is finally taking the right approach: By highlighting the ways these seemingly harmless "immigrants" are actually harming completely innocent, non-rich American citizens, it will become increasingly difficult for even the most "compassionate" amongst us to look the other way at these lawbreakers.As long as citizens are duped by the ACLU (a.k.a. Agitating Cannabis Lovers' Union), the pro-illegal lobby (a.k.a. the Democratic Party) and much of the MSM (CNN other than Lou Dobbs) that we "need" illegals because they help all of us while hurting few if any of us, they won't demand reform. Once it's pointed out that these people live as parasites—not just on the welfare system, but on the names and CREDIT RATINGS of the little people like you and I, I think people will start to demand action to stop them.I was a victim of this crime myself. My identity was used by no fewer than 100 (according to an FBI guy who was working the case, after I pushed and pushed and PUSHED for them to get involved) people who bought my SS# from some West African guy. He apparently sold it mostly to other West Africans, but some hispanics as well. If it weren't so scary, and didn't haunt me for almost 10 years, some of the incidents would have been funny—like the "me" who was a guy in drag passing bad checks at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas (caught on surveillance camera no less, that's how we know) or the morbidly obese "me" who opened store charges at every fat lady clothing store on the Eastern seaboard!Yup, thanks to these illegals, "I" stole a U-Haul truck and was wanted for Grand Theft Auto, passed bad checks in Nevada, Illinois, Georgia and Florida (apparently on the same day too, would that I could be in three places at once!), trashed a hotel room and led police on a high-speed chase!Yes, "I" was a wanted woman/man/cross-dresser for almost a year, and the results of my actions haunted my credit (in small ways, I was very good at getting 99% of the stuff dealt with before major damage was done) for almost a decade.Had I been one of those people who thought illegal immigration wasn't a big deal, or didn't hurt regular folk like us—may have even helped us with cheapo veggies, hotel rooms and lawn service (not that I could ever afford lawn service, cheap labor notwithstanding), having my identity stolen would have been all the wake-up call I'd need! Shit, finding out that ANYONE was having their identity stolen by illegal aliens, and that employers were not only looking the other way, but enabling it by never verifying identities of their employees (so much so that one company once allowed the use of the same SS# by over 2,000 DIFFERENT workers) would have done it for me. Now add to that the fact that the SSA doesn't inform people when their identities are being used by someone else, and you have (I hope) a recipe for righteous outrage, hopefully potent enough to move our lawmakers to enforce the laws they themselves make!Until then though, all I can say is, guard your SS# like a pit bull. Either that or prepare yourself for phone calls and mail from law enforcement agencies all of the country demanding to know why you've done things you've never even dreamed of in your wildest nightmares!Posted by Deb on

WE NEED A WAR FOR OIL! Here's why:Supposedly, our previous incursion into the Middle East were about oil, but it hasn't looked that way. Unlike all this establishing democracy hooey, a real war for oil would follow a much simpler mission plan: We go in, we kill lots of people, and we take all the oil. Also, we would know for certain when the mission is accomplished; if we have all the oil, we're done...Will America stealing all the oil in the Middle East anger the people there? Of course, but who cares. Since we'll have all their oil, they won't have any gasoline to get near us. What are they going to do? Fill a truck with bombs, put it in neutral, and push it towards us? That's pathetic. The most they'll do is get as close to our walled in oil fields and shout epithets at us. Then we can shout back, "Don't you guys have anything better to do? Like losing a war to tiny country full of Jews?" So there is what needs to be done. I want war war war until gas is down to a buck a gallon, and I'm the taxpayer, so I get what I want. People didn't need to die for this, but a bunch of Muslims didn't need to live where all our oil is either.Posted by Alois on
04/24/06:DAILY GAAAAAAZ-O-LEEEEEEN! AWARD(S): The first is courtesy of my soon-to-be brother-in-law Jerry. This is a true story that actually happened to him :
I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the Super Wal-Mart Shopping Center and rolled down the car windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there. I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, "Now you stay. Do you hear me? Stay! Stay!"The driver of a nearby car, a pretty blonde young lady, gave me a strange look and said, "Why don't you just put it in park?"And this next comes from his illustrious big sister:
A woman rubbed a bottle and out popped a genie. The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes.The genie said, "Nope, sorry, three-wish genies are a storybook myth. I'm a one-wish genie. So... What'll it be?"The woman did not hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs to love the Jews and Americans and vice-versa. It will bring about world peace and harmony."The genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Lady, please be reasonable. These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm out of shape after being in a bottle for five hundred years. I'm good but not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish and please be reasonable."The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the right man. You know - one that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and help with the house cleaning, is great in bed and gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That is what I wish for........... a good man."The genie let out a long sigh and said, "Let me see the freaking map again."Posted by Alois on

OXYMORON OF THE CENTURY: How in the hell did I let this one get past me?
DANTE'S EIGHTH CIRCLE OF HELL:
MISSION NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED: On my way back from lunch, passed a huge SUV proudly displaying that bumpersticker. Folks, I think we've reached a new low... even for the Peoples' Republic of Madison.Think about what that sticker really says for a minute:We accomplished nothing by overthrowing Saddam Hussein, one of the most bloodthirsty tyrants of modern history.We accomplished nothing by bringing to a halt Saddam's ongoing campaign of genocide.Our soldiers have accomplished nothing for all the sacrifices they have made.And I'm such a pampered, monied, SUV-driving pig that I can thumb my nose at the whole enterprise.Just once. Just for one day... I'd like to know what it feels like to be the center of the entire fucking universe, with a thought for no one but myself and for nothing but my creature comforts.Posted by Alois on
