If we are to take Mr. Reid at his word – then why did the CBO bother to cost out the bill proposal?

The CBO estimate will turn into ‘cover’ for the members of Congress that vote yes on this monstrosity. They will vote yes and then tell us that they would have never voted for the bill if they had known……………….oh well, too late now.

Message to Congress – at least 80% of Americans have demanded that you read the bills before you sign them. We will not allow you to use this as an excuse. If you vote on a bill without knowing the details/impact to your constituents – we will vote you out.

Alternatives to Detention – Janet Napolitano

Via CNSNews.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday that she is pursuing plans to remove some captured illegal aliens from “prison-like or jail-like circumstances” and put them in converted hotels and nursing homes.

“To better manage detention operations, ICE will develop a risk assessment and custody classification, which will enable detainees to be placed in an appropriate facility,” DHS said in a statement. “ICE will pursue detention strategies based on assessed risk and reduce costs by exploring the use of converted hotels, nursing homes and other residential facilities.”

Um, if we are going to put illegal aliens on a bus to transfer them – why don’t we just transfer them back home? In addition, if we have converted hotels, nursing homes or other residential facilities available – why don’t we utilize this space to house our American homeless population?

Ms. Napolitano, do you realize that illegally entering the US is a crime? How on earth is this going to deter this illegal activity? Come to America illegally and we’ll put you up in a hotel? Your responsibility is to ensure the security of our borders, not inject your ideology. If you disagree with the law – change it. Oooh, that’s right, a significant majority of the American people do not agree with your ideology.

Napolitano noted that DHS will develop detention strategies based on assessed risk that will reduce costs and put illegal aliens “near immigration service providers.” These strategies will include pursuing the use of non-prison-like housing.

Aw………it becomes a little clearer. They are going to make it more convenient for the LaRaza/LaCasa groups to assist these persons with their immigration.

Janice Kephart, national security policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, believes that “alternatives to detention” is just another name for the failed “catch and release” model.

“‘Alternatives to Detention’ is just another way to say ‘Catch and Release,’ which was the thorn in the side of the prior administration until they stopped it and put rule of law in place,” said Kephart.

“Although managing detention facilities and their populations well is a good goal, simply doing it by reducing the illegal population and dispersing them back into American communities does not help enforce immigration law or make our communities more secure,” Kephart said.

Kephart pointed out that Mir Aimal Kansi, who murdered two CIA employees outside the agency’s Langley, Va., headquarters; Ramzi Yousef, who masterminded the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center; and Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, who inspired the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, had all been asylum applicants who were left free in the United States.

Those pesky terrorists are always getting the way of Napolitano’s plans…………………..I wonder how the people in the communities will feel about these ‘Immigration Hiltons’ being in their neighborhoods?

Global Warming?

Some Idaho school kids enjoy an early snow day.

This may be one for the record books, not only how early this heavy fall snowstorm is, but the fact that it appears to have created the earliest snow day in the history of the Blaine County School District.

Loveland ski area opens today.

Boasting its earliest opening day in 40 years, Loveland officials opened for skiing today. Arapahoe Basin announced it would open Friday.

Resort Opening Earlier Than Ever Before.

The 2009-2010 season at the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is underway, the earliest the resort has ever been open.

It’s not just the US.

Frozen: Early snow leaves farmers in northern Armenia counting their losses.

Unusual at this time of the year even for these upland areas of the country, the spell of cold weather in Aragatsotn, Shirak and Lori began on Monday night, with temperatures dropping to or below zero and snowfalls registered for the first time [in September] in more than four decades.

Congress had better hurry and get that Cap and Tax passed as it seems the planet is not cooperating with their agenda. Mother Nature must be a conservative ;o)

What Is Kevin Jennings Agenda?

It’s elementary. Kevin Jennings believes the only way to keep children safe is to teach them about tolerance. He wants to teach tolerance by teaching elementary school children about gay lifestyles.

“It’s Elementaryis the most important film dealing with LGBT issues and safe schools ever made. It took a topic that was mystifying to many people and made it real, inspiring an entire generation of educators to see how they could make a difference…. No other film has had a bigger impact on LGBT issues in the schools.” —Kevin Jennings, executive director, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network

The main problem with this agenda is the fact that Kevin Jennings has a complete disregard for the parents of these children. Most parents do not want anything sexual discussed with their children in elementary school. These are discussions that should be happening between parents and children to ensure the parents/family morals and religious guidelines are at the forefront of the discussion. Parents do not lose their right to parent because their children are in public schools.

In addition, his focus does not seem to be on all children – only gay children – which by his own estimates are approximately 7% of school age children. What about the other 93%?

In a 2006 interview with Salon, Jennings said:

“I always remind myself that Americans have all been raised to pledge allegiance to the ideal of liberty and justice for all. And eventually the disconnect between how we treat some people and those ideals becomes so overwhelming that the majority of Americans will say, “Enough, this has to stop.” That’s what led to the end of slavery, that’s what led to suffrage, that’s what led to the civil rights movement — it’s when people have the disconnect between the American reality and American ideals shoved in their face to the point they can no longer take it. That’ll happen on this issue too, no doubt in my mind.”

This is an interesting pick for Obama if you look back at his comments regarding Bush’s pick of James Holsinger as Surgeon General.

President Obama, I have serious reservations about nominating someone who would inject his own pro-gay ideology into critical decisions about the health and well-being of our children.

Kevin Jennings – Racists and Uncaring

According to Kevin Jennings, if we disagree with his agenda we are racists and;

“When you show me you care, I’ll be willing to talk to you – until then – why don’t you turn the day of silence into a year of silence for yourselves.”

Sign of the times – if we disagree – we don’t care – or count.

FEMA Grant To ACORN – Frozen

As I reported on September 12, 2009;

Why has FEMA paid The Acorn Institute $1.4 Million in grants since August 2008?

Paid 8/29/08 – Fiscal Year 2007 = $450,484 

Paid 9/04/09 – Fiscal Year 2008 – $997,402 (only 6 grants were issued for more money than ACORN – out of 220 grants)

According to the FEMA website the purpose of these grants are:

The purpose of the Fire Prevention and Safety Grants is to fund Fire Prevention and Research and Development activities.  Fire Prevention Grant Activities are designed to reach high-risk target groups and mitigate incidences of deaths and injuries caused by fire and fire-related hazards.  Research and Development Grant Activities are aimed at improvements to firefighter health and safety.

It is being reported by Fox News that the funds related to the 2009 grant have been frozen.
