Congressional Black Caucus: The Congressional Black Caucus is an organization representing the Black members of the United States Congress. Membership is exclusive to Blacks,  and its chair in the 111th Congress is Representative Barbara Lee of California.
We're confused, these people have presented themselves to be the Congressional - Mexican - Caucus. We are not only disappointed with this first Black President; he has somewhat of an excuse ... he thinks he's half White. He doesn't realize that the enemy of the Black Man sees him as all Black. There's no such thing as half White. He's still young and unaware. But you have a history of disappointment. And you have no excuse. You not only disgrace the cause you claim but you do it wearing Black Face. And you swear you represent all of Black America …. sadly, you don't. And you wonder why the Tea Party has taken such a hold. We would rather take a chance for 2 to 4 years with someone new than have 4 more years of you.
We know what you're going to do for the Black Man … nothing. We've had enough of you.
Everyone that is conservative in this nation is not Republican , or White , or at Tea Party rallies. We need a congressional Black Caucus for Black America. We can understand the treason of Guiteirrez, we realize he's the political puppet of Central and South American Cartels. But we take high offence to the treasonous and disrespectful acts of the Congressional Black Caucus … Is that clear.
*** Citizenship: Illegal Criminal Alien Invaders claim they want citizenship. Beyond the fact that 12 out of 14 of them don't know what citizenship means … citizenship is NOT what they want. What they want is the BENEFITS US citizens have. Namely Welfare and Section 8 vouchers. Welfare so they can have 10 to 20 gang members and get a big fat welfare check, and Section 8 vouchers for public subsidized housing. Denouncing their allegiance to their home country is the furthest thing from their minds. And … proclaiming devotion and loyalty to our country has never been in their intentions.
They just see citizenship as a way to free money … nothing more.
If you think we're fabricating this … get you a group of Illegal Criminal Alien Invaders together and tell them they can be citizens and be accepted as a honored brother in our nation if they denounce their home country … and they can't get any welfare , section 8, or any other benefits legitimate citizens have earned through family contribution … and see what they say. We'll tell you what they will say … they'll say they want the benefits whether they have to be citizens or something else.
These people ARE NOT trying to be a part of us.
*** You have seen your opponents. If you don't vote, they won't just be your opponent … they will be your master. Vote.
*** Allegience: adherence, ardor, consecration, constancy, dedication, deference, devotion, duty, faithfulness, fealty, fidelity, homage, honor, obedience, obligation, piety
Be of no delusion … Illegal Criminal Alien Invaders have NO allegiance to our country. After interviewing scores of Illegal Aliens and their children born here … when asked if they consider themselves American Citizens or not, time after time their response was … "My mother and my father are Mexican or whatever country they're from … and I am Mexican or whatever" … These are the people who some of us INSIST upon lavishing citizenship on. People who neither appreciate citizenship, nor want citizenship, and have NO intention of being dedicated to our country.
We challenge you to get 3 Illegal Alien Invaders together and have them recite the Pledge of allegiance. They don't know it, don't mean it and have no intention of abiding by it. They are NOT trying to be a part of us.
*** Savior: Good Samaritan, conservator, defender, deliverer, friend in need, guardian, guardian angel, hero, liberator, preserver, protector, rescuer, salvager, salvation It's time to save our selves. With God's help. We need todays' Eiensteins, George Washington Carvers, and Thomas Edisons to apply them selves and devise a way for us to get out of this mess. There is no other country or people that are going to helicopter in and save the United States of America, like we've done for countless others. We must save our self. And when we do , give the congratulations and thanks to ourselves and God, in whom we trust.
*** Puppy: Mommy, mommy, mommy … I want a puppy. If we get this puppy, you have to feed it, clean up after it, and protect it. Mommy, mommy, mommy … where's my puppy. Squashed by an armored truck.
How does this apply to you … you won an election, you have to keep what you won.
Bust the Banks
Repel the invasion
Just say no
NO AMNESTY!! ...
*** A small point: If there were 12 million Illegal Criminal Alien Invaders in our nation during the marches of 2006 … and thousands of Illegal Invaders are violating our border each day … how can there still only be 12 million Illegal Criminal Alien Invaders in our nation today? We do not appreciate our intelligence being insulted this way.
Any questions ...

Washington needs a primer: Econ 101
The other day I had the pleasure of meeting with Elizabeth Volard, President and CEO of the Arizona Council on Economic Education. Elizabeth’s organization is focused on helping Arizona students develop economic ways of thinking and problem solving that they can use in their lives as knowledgeable consumers, savers and investors. It’s a worthy cause and one that I support fully.
During our conversation, Elizabeth pulled out a guide they use called “The 6 Core Economic Principles”. They are the foundation of the coursework promoted by the Council for K-12 in Arizona and I think are worth reviewing given the fact that our President has proposed a series of governmental spending packages to address our economic woes.
The 6 Core Economic Principles
1. People Choose
We always want more than we can get and productive resources are always limited. Therefore, because of this major economic problem of scarcity, we usually choose the alternative that provides the most benefits with the least cost.
2. All Choices Involve Costs
The opportunity cost is the next best alternative you give up when you make a choice. When we choose one thing, we refuse something else at the same time.
3. People Respond to Incentives in Predictable Ways
Incentives are actions, awards or rewards that determine the choices people make. Incentives can be positive or negative. When incentives cha! nge, peo ple change their behaviors in predictable ways.
4. Economic Systems Influence Individual Choices and Incentives
People cooperate and govern their actions through both written and unwritten rules that determine methods of allocating scarce resources. These rules determine what is produced, how it is produced and for whom it is produced. As the rules change, so do individual choices, incentives and behavior.
5. Voluntary Trade Creates Wealth
People specialize in the production of certain goods and services because they expect to gain from it. People trade what they produce with other people when they think they can gain something from the exchange. Some benefits of voluntary trade include higher standards of living and broader choices of goods and services.
6. The Consequences of Choices Lie in the Future
Economists believe that the costs and benefits of decision making appear in the future, since it is only the future that we can influence. Sometimes our choices can lead to unintended consequences.
Now, it occurred to me that while every K-12 student in Arizona should be exposed to these principles and through Elizabeth’s great work they are, perhaps President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and, of course, Harry Mitchell should actually sit down and read these as well. Since none of them have actual hands on experience in business, these concepts are probably very foreign to them. But if they actually took the time to read them, they would immediately see that everything this administration has done to date flies in the face of these core economic principles. Taking away choice and creating more expensive alternatives, creating negative action in the face of fear, fundamentally changing the rules away from a free market economy, restricting voluntary trade and not understanding the severe consequences of the choices they have made are serving to undermine our very prosperity.
We need to give our leaders in Washington a primer in Econ 101 and this November we’ve got to elect people who have demonstrated an ability to do so.

The Colbert joke
Recently, while I was watching TV I saw some comedian named Steve Colbert testifying at a congressional hearing on illegal immigration. I asked myself what if any relationship he has with any of these workers? Then the TV ran a short TV spot of him in the fields picking beans. I could just imagine the cameramen with TV satellite trucks covering this great event. Or maybe a make up man would run out onto the bean field to touch up his forehead should he ever work up a sweat. I doubt if he’s ever worked up a sweat in his life doing hard back bending work. He mentioned that his family crossed the Atlantic to come to this country. Big Deal! So did mine, they settled along the James River when this country was just beginning. My family has fought and died for this country. He was asked what interest he had and why he was here. He said that he was an American and had a right to ask about the rights of illegal workers. Yeah, well so do I but I am not a TV actor, or celebrity, I am just an ordinary citizen. No one has allowed me to voice my opinion on TV. I can only assume that is why we have the Tea Party movement so the average working American can have a voice.
I was waiting for Mr. Colbert to address the facts. First he talks about illegals doing work Americans won’t do. Did he know that less than 2 percent of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29 percent are on welfare? I assume he didn’t. His main job for the past few years has been standing, excuse me, I mean sitting in front of a TV camera, reading his script or telling jokes. Did he know or even care that 29 percent of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens? Did he know that $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments? Did he know that $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens? Did he know that the new health care bill will be like a magnet drawing more illegals across the border, and he expects us to standby and do nothing because it makes him feel good? Does he know that approximately, $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. I can only assume that the whole affair was an opportunity to promote himself at the expense of a real American problem. Does he have any idea that it is estimated nationwide $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for welfare and social services by the American taxpayers. Remember, illegals have sworn no allegiance to America. The reality is that one out of every eight Americans are on food stamps. Paid for with our tax dollars. One out of every five receives some sort of government subsidy. Approximately, 50 percent of Americans don’t pay taxes and this number is growing. We are in an economic downturn and the jobless rate is hovering around 10 percent and this clown wants us to let illegals take these jobs? As you can see they are not picking crops. They are taking other jobs.
Let me give you an example of what happened in this state last year. There was an American citizen with a wife and two children. He paid his taxes and worked hard to support his family. He worked in the construction industry as a dry wall installer making $20 per hour. He lost his job when the contractor hired an illegal at $9 an hour. He paid the worker under the table and the worker paid no taxes while sending his money back to Mexico. He also enjoyed the free state giveaways offered through social services.
For example this illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps. He may also receive a $500 per month federal rent subsidy. If the illegal has children he may get a government sponsored lunch and an after School ESL program but the American citizen still has to find a job and pay taxes. The irony of the story is that the American citizen who lost his job was a Hispanic. But Mr. Colbert doesn’t know anything about that. However, he does know a good PR opportunity when he sees it.
So we have to ask ourselves who invited this clown to testify? He has no relative information to add toward a collective solution to the problem. He was there only to make fun and ridicule the process. You guessed it, a Democrat asked him to come.
Wake up America they are laughing at you.

Re-elect Bob Littlefield
If ever there were a city councilman worthy of being re-elected it is Bob Littlefield.
He has been a true friend of the Downtown Scottsdale Merchants and a watch dog for our preservation as a tourism destination. Whether it be out of state developers wanting to “re-develop” our Downtown or local politicians wanting to force economic disasters like Light Rail down Scottsdale Road – Bob has always been the first one to come to our defense.
At a time when small businesses are cutting their expenses just to stay afloat, now more than ever we need elected officials “who get it”. Bob gets it.
With Bob, what you see is what you get. In order to get re-elected he doesn’t need to re-invent himself as a fiscal conservative, he is a fiscal conservative. He doesn’t have to pretend to be a champion of small businesses, or a friend of the taxpayer or a neighborhood preservationist. Bob is all of these.
He listens to what you have to say and doesn’t sugarcoat his response. He’s a real straight shooter, the kind of City Councilman that every city would hope to have, and we are darn lucky to have him.

Obama’s economy a shambles
In February 2009 President Obama implemented an economic stimulus package of $787 billion, which was supposed to CREATE five million NEW jobs by the end of 2010. This estimate was subsequently lowered to three million NEW jobs. The administration then said they would CREATE and SAVE jobs. They said unemployment would peak at 8 percent by the end of 2010, and then recede.
Some officials estimate the stimulus might create/save two million jobs, and the current unemployment rate of 9.6 percent could go to 10 percent by year end, and stay near 10 percent for 2011. The real unemployment rate is over 15 percent, and includes people whose unemployment benefits have expired and who have stopped looking for work.
The economic stimulus money was wasted on programs that did not create the NEW jobs promised by Obama.
Since the beginning of the Obama economic debacle in January 2009 the national debt as a percentage of GDP has gone from 40 percent to approximately 60 percent, and the national deficit in 2010 is projected to reach about $1.5 trillion.
Obama’s economy is a shambles because consumers, who account for 65 percent of our economy, are cutting back on expenditures due to a lack of trust and confidence in the current administration. Obama’s policies and programs have created a lethargy in this country, which is due to the uncertainty fomented by the Obama administration.
We need a fresh approach to our economy, and the discontent of the American public should be heard in the upcoming elections in November.

Another socialist in the woodshed
Unless you live in a cave you're probably already aware that the largest backer of Obama and his socialist/Marxist agenda has been the America hating super socialist George Soros.
But here's something VERY interesting that you may not know. Another huge supporter and financier of the Obama administration and its related street thugs, goons, morons and liars is Peter Lewis of Progressive Insurance.
The choice is yours. Why put more money in the pocket of a "man" who disagrees with what America stands for, supports a movement doing their best to circumvent our constitution and rights and in the process disrespects documented American citizens, their desires, values and over 200 years of success.
Support those who support your values ... Choose your insurance company carefully!
Hit them in the wallet!!!!!!!
You may want to also apply that principle to the CelebRetards from Hollywood.
When voting on November 2nd ... use your common sense and love of country to determine your choices!!!!

Television coverage of the successful rescue of the 33 miners in Chile made one thing evident: Chileans, whether of European or mestizo (white and Araucano) stock, are handsome people: tall, slim, of sharp profiles. What a vast difference between Chileans and the Mexica mestizo stock that has invaded our country! Note: I am not aware of any Chileans illegally entering Argentina or Bolivia. As a matter of fact, the one Bolivian miner with the 32 Chilean miners personally told Bolivian President Evo Morales that he wishes to remain in Chile, the land of opportunity.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
