Welcome Daily Kos readers...how appropriate that a quote about "crazies" would bring you here since when I think about "crazies", many of those who comment at Daily Kos spring to mind. The main reasons I oppose amnesty can be found here.
I am in the throes of grading hell, so let me point out some folks who are writing and updating on important things you need to see.
First, Andi has the latest on Fran O'Brien's and the Hilton along with a tease about "something big" which might be coming later this week.
Second, B5 has received photos from an ROTC cadet's mom featuring the defacing of her son's armory at UNC. Of course, with the Air Force door being left out, the Zoomies are feeling discriminated against...figures. As I tried to explain to the young man who wrote the letter to our campus paper's editor, if no one volunteers, EVERYONE will have a number that could be called. You have to love the tolerance and understanding these vandals have...so enlightened.
Third, Michelle Malkin posts about the darkside of amnesty for illegal aliens. Those whose "compassion" is getting in the way of good sense would do well to read this. Let's face it, folks, we have plenty of crazies of our own...do we really want to import a different kind of nut job? If you're interested in seeing employers in your state suspected of employing illegal aliens, visit this site. (H/T Vilmar) I did a search for our state and found a very snazzy restaurant who has been reported as employing illegal aliens. Interesting. If you know an employer who does, you can also report them via this informal site.
Fourth, Thomas Sowell via Real Clear Politics has a terrific article regarding oil prices and politicians' trying to make hay of them. Just remember...the government takes up to 50-cents per gallon on EVERY tank of gas pumped in this nation. That's pure profit on their part as they aren't doing oil exploration, refinings, etc. The big oil companies' profit margins are not the same thing as the profit being reported. Please educate yourselves so if you're interviewed by the news media you can provide intelligent commentary instead of what I've seen so far. Neal Boortz adds to the discussion including a good description of what the numbers actually mean.
Fifth and finally, the movie United 93 opens this weekend. Michael Smerconish of Philly's famous "Big Talker" offers his review and request that we fill the theaters.
