I know this isn’t new, but given the fact that the left keeps calling Rush and his fans/listeners/students the fringe, and given the fact that the average daily readers of USA Today, Newsweek and The New York Times (The Whipping Boys Of The Left) totals less than 20 million viewers while Rush pulls in over 20 million listeners on his own… The fringe seems to be the left with the right becoming more center-ish, well let’s just say that I am in man-crush mode with him right now. So, in celebration of my faux-gheynitude, from 1994 (yes 94!):
Rush Limbaugh’s 35 Undeniable Truths
Here is Pelosi talking on ABC about drilling and on her decision to turn the lights off on the Republicans last week. She states emphatically that she will not allow an up or down vote even though when they took the majority, House Democrats proclaimed that…
“bills should generally come to the floor under a procedure that allows open, full and fair debate consisting of a full amendment process that grants the Minority the right to offer its alternatives.”
Apparently not on drilling. Who believes anything that comes out of her mouth? My question is this. The Dems. want alternative energy and say that drilling won’t help now. But in reality how far away are we from being able to use the “alternative energy” that they keep touting? I bet longer than it will take for the oil we can drill this afternoon to help. This energy crisis should be a driving force in the free-trade world we live in. Where are the solar powered cars, solar powered air conditioning units, natural gas cars? No where because they aren’t viable or even non-fiction for that matter.

The face of the left shines it’s ugly mug towards the camera once again. This is the voice of those who purport to represent you. Do you agree with them? More can be found here at Zombietime as well as photos of the traitors pretending to be interested in what they are goose stepping to. I wish their fathers had held them more as babies. Basically this way of thinking does nothing for their cause. Ignorance is bountiful on the streets of Berkley. ‘
Today’s Summer Solstice showdown featured Move America Forward, the Marines Motorcycle Club, the Patriot Guard Riders and other veterans’ and pro-America groups facing off against their traditional adversaries: World Can’t Wait, Code Pink, the Revolutionary Communist Party, assorted 9/11 Truthers, far-left activists and their fellow travelers.
Via Hot Air
Over the last few weeks those of us living in Arizona have been bombarded by the media with stories about the State of Arizona requiring all businesses to use the E-Verify Employment-Eligibility Program starting on January 1, 2008. This program makes it easy for employers to check the eligibility of new employees by simply logging into the E-Verify website, entering the employees information that they provide on the standard I9 form that every new employee must fill out when hired. This is going to make sure that all Arizona business comply with the Legal Arizona Workers Act.
Beginning Jan. 1, all business owners in Arizona risk losing their state and local licenses if they knowingly or intentionally hire undocumented workers after that date. Licenses can be suspended for 10 days or longer for a first offense and revoked altogether for a second offense.
Basically this is going to prevent Arizona businesses from hiring illegal aliens. Presumably the companies are hiring these illegal because they will work for far less than the minimum wage and in return stuff the employer’s wallets. It could also be argued that the hiring of these illegal aliens also drive the overall wages down making it impossible for legal citizens to get a fair wage. It is estimated that there are 150,000 illegal aliens working in the State of Arizona currently. Nearly 6,000 employers had signed up for E-Verify, compared with fewer than 450 before the sanctions law was signed by the governor in July. Still, the 6,000 constitute just a fraction of the state’s 150,000 employers.
Now onto the part that all of you came here to read. I’m sure you can see all of the people you regularly see on the news who make excuses for the illegal aliens foaming in their drool cups right now and crapping themselves with anger. Here in Phoenix we are continually accused of being racists, nazis, fear-mongers and bigots for wanting our government to follow it’s own laws. So here it is…
Julie Pace, an attorney for the business groups, said the latest lawsuit contains the same arguments the first one did against the employer-sanctions law – that it’s an unconstitutional attempt by the state to regulate immigration and that cracking down on hiring illegal immigrants is the sole responsibility of the federal government.
The plaintiffs are providing evidence including a declaration by an Arizona employer who states that he is knowingly hiring an undocumented worker and intends to do so after Jan. 1 and has been specifically threatened by the county attorney that he is going to be prosecuted under the new law, Pace said Monday.
No Shit dumbass! Hey officers, um… I will be smoking a joint at my home, in the backyard at exacgtly 9:43 tonight if you want to just stop by or you’re in the neighborhood or whatever…
Now what I did was go to the website, I signed up, took a quick test on procedures, passed the test without even reading the manual, got certified, went in and E-Verified myself all in the span of about 20 minutes. Assuming that you had already gone through the certification process it would take less than 5 minutes for each person you needed to verify and receive a positive or negative reaction from the program.
Any business owner in Arizona or in America for that matter would be hard pressed to find something inconvenient about the program. Except those who want to hire illegals. There are many more nuances about the law that I could get into but I’m lazy and I don’t think you really care. So through out this post are important links to information regarding the topic. Plus here are a few more that may answer any questions you slobs may have.
• Here you can read the text of the law.
• The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services provides information about E-Verify. You can learn more about the program or sign up for it by going to USCIS
• Creative Business Resources, a human resources outsourcing company, operates a Web site intended to provide information about the law and how businesses must comply.
• The group Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform operates a site with information about the legal challenge to the law provided by those who are suing to overturn it.
• The American Civil Liberties Union is also among the groups suing to overturn the Arizona law and other illegal immigrant-related laws and ordinances nationwide.
Up until a few days ago the Phoenix Police Department was unable to call ICE or the Border Patrol when they caught a criminal who was suspected of being an illegal alien except under special circumstances. Their hands were tied by Police Operations Order 1.4 that is the order that currently prescribes and dictates exactly when a Phoenix Police Officer can call Immigration and Customs authorities — and when they cannot. It is the same Order that has caused Phoenix to be labeled by some as a “Sanctuary City”. In recent weeks, talk-radio hosts and newspaper columnists have battered Gordon for failing to quell a dispute over day laborers at M.D. Pruitt’s Home Furnishings, where 200 people gathered to protest on Saturday. But if you ask me I think they should just let them keep protesting because THE ILLEGAL ALIENS KEEP GOING OUT AND PROTESTING!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s human smuggling unit arrested 8 more illegal immigrants outside Pruitt’s Furniture on Saturday. That brings the total to 32 arrests over a 6-week period in which Sheriff’s deputies have been enforcing state and federal immigration laws througout Maricopa County.
Pro-illegal immigration and day laborer protesters have been lining up outside the Thomas road store, protesting the store and the Sheriff’s illegal immigration enforcement.
Arpaio says those protesters will be arrested and put in jail if they violate any laws on the Pruitt’s store property.
Well, (D) Mayor Phil Gordon has decided to change Police Operations Order 4.1! Gordon and city have come under criticism for the existing policy after the shooting death of a Phoenix Police officer by an illegal immigrant from Mexico. There are an estimated 579,000 illegals in the state making up 12 percent of Arizona’s work force, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.
The revised policy is being reviewed now by former U.S. Attorney Paul Charlton, former U.S. Attorney Jose Rivera, former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods and former Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley and they have been asked to make their decision by December 31. This revised policy would apparently untie police and sheriffs deputies allowing them to call immigration anytime they see fit. Which is exactly what the police union has been asking for for years.
“When it was written, it was right for local law enforcement and our community,” Gordon told reporters. “But it was written in another time – and it was based on the premise that the federal government would fulfill all its responsibilities regarding immigration enforcement. Obviously, that has changed.”
As you would expect apologists for law breaking illegal aliens are wetting their pants and crying their way through boxes of tissues. One real jackass Salvador Reza made the following statement that “Mayor Gordon’s about-face is a result of his listening to a very small group of Minutemen, Nazis, and KKKs”! Are you kidding me?
Hispanic community leaders on Wednesday accused Mayor Phil Gordon of rushing through changes to a police department policy that prohibits officers from questioning the immigration status of people they run across during routine duties. On Monday, the mayor announced the formation of a four-man panel to come up with a revised policy that would allow officers to contact ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) when they have reason to question the immigration status of anyone who’s believed to have committed another infraction.
Basically the apologists and those who believe that they have any sorts of rights in this country because they are not citizen but just happen to be on American soil are slowly being choked out by the overwhelming desire by REAL Americans to stop illegal aliens. Another win for the good guys.
Xbox/ Microsoft Screws The Little Guy
I am asking for all of your help here. 1 year and 8 days ago I bought an Xbox 360. I paid $600 for the console, 2 controllers, hard drive and a couple of games. I played it for 3 months and suddenly got an error on it that said “Unplayable Disk” every time I put something in. So I call their service department and they had me send it in and when they received it they promptly called me to tell me they were just sending me a new one. 3 weeks later I received it and didn’t have any more problems. That is until yesterday.
Yesterday my son tried to play our brand new game “Mass Effect” which we had bought the day before for the low-low price of $59.95. He got the “Unplayable Disk” error again. So when I got home after my 10 hours at work I start the service phone call. A few minutes in the young lady with the latin accent informs me that my warranty is up and they will have to charge me for the repair. That charge? $100! Which includes shipping and handling and gets me a new 1 year warranty and 1 month of Xbox Live (which figures out too be about $2.00). “How long had it been since my warranty expired”, I asked. 8 days ago. 8 DAYS AGO!
Sensing my frustration and apparent lack of sympathy for Microsoft I was transferred to a supervisor. “Mike” gets on the phone and with nearly the same Latin accent tells me he “feels my pain” (I shit you not) and patiently listens to me besmirch his daddy Bill Gates on how he’s putting his penny loafers in the little guys ass. He agreed with me and explains that when I sent the Xbox in the first time (7 months ago) that they fixed it for free but I did not pay the $25 for the extended warranty on the new one they sent me and that the warranty does not start new with the new machine. He says unfortunately there is nothing he can do with the exception of giving me 25% off so my final charge would be $75.00. I then asked what would happen if I had the “3 Flashing Red Lights Of Doom” on it would they still fix it past my warranty…. yes they would! But not my problem, noooooo not my problem.
This is unacceptable people. This is a malfunction that is due to their hardware problems. Not because I was putting grilled cheese sandwiches into it or using it to beat my kids with or using it to scramble eggs with. I have paid my $75. But I told “Mike” that in return for their charging me I would be having my own “Power To The People” moment. Here’s what I am doing, and what I am asking you to do. Just as I told them I would be doing and “Mike” said it was my prerogative to do so.
I will be calling the help center’s phone a minimum of 20 times a day for the next 4 weeks or until I receive my replacement/repaired Xbox. I figure that it would cost them a minimum of $3.00 to just answer the phone when it rings so forecasting 4 weeks at 20 times a day it should equal roughly $1600 by the time I get it back for a $75 charge on equipment that is faulty because they suck.
So I am asking all of you out there to call the following numbers and simply wait on hold until someone picks up and tell them that you are complaining about their service, tell them that your name is Ed Gruberman and simply hang up. When you have done this please just leave me a comment.
Thank you for all of your help and I will continually update this post and push it back to the top everyday until it is resolved.
