Booker T. Washington foresaw all of this a century or more ago, when he said:
is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the
troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the
public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their
troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their
wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays.
Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances,
because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
There seems to be some confusion about the role of "First Responders" and what they actually do.
First Responders are:
Responders come to the scene after a
They do not PREVENT disasters.
The confusion arises from the common motto of Police Departments: "To Protect and Serve". Regular folks expect the police to "Protect" them....in what might be called a "Pro-Active" way; when, in fact, the role of the police is almost entirely "Re-Active", responding to something that's already happened.
See, it's right there in the name: "RESPONDERS".
Responders respond, Protectors protect, the responders show up after there are dead people.
What people expect of the police is actually the mission of a Security Team: to prevent disasters.
Some rich people, famous people, important people, elected people have security teams.
Regular folks don't. It's up to each of us to be our own "Security Team".
And that's just what Øbama and the progs will prevent us from doing if they can get their way.
Just look at what they're doing to the military recruiters....

Oh, he knows. He just likes it. He's for anything that endangers
America and white Americans (and conservatives black Americans).
about destroying America from the inside and the outside. He's not
merely incompetent. He's evilly intent on doing as much damage as
possible for as long as he's in office. He knows the limp GOP won't

He's Saul Alinsky's (and Lucifer's) wet dream. The perfect

Not bad for a mediocre student, a lackluster legislator, a moderate intelligence, a poor character, and a lazy constitution.
Considering the Denver Post is a very liberal paper I'm surprised they published this. This really shows how the hiring of illegals is false economic practice.
Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post. She writes some really good stuff and she is a strong advocate for LEGAL immigration .... Homework on issues is part of her make-up and fabric ...
What if they left?
Somebody really did their homework on this one. Best on the subject to date. It does not have a political slant to it, it's just the facts: Not Democratic, not Republican, not liberal and not conservative:

What if 20 million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?
I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament."
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?" Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.
It's a good question... it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!
In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico , it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.
In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back "home," mostly to Mexico. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs.
It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone. Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.
In Florida , 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America , the rule of law, and English.
In Chicago , Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.
If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home,' the U.S. economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.
No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.
We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.
In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!
Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America's economy which currently suffers a $20 trillion debt. $20 trillion debt!!!
At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.
Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country - brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders. Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.
Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.
The New York Times reported them to be America's new ' Third World ' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)
By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally annually, more than all other countries combined. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life. Interesting Statistics!
Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that's Billion with a 'B')
3. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English
5. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars 'PER DAY' is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That's $1.2 Billion a year.
7. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
11. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!
Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!

"BHO's reaction to the wanton slaughter of our unarmed Marines July 16 in Chattanooga, Tennessee was, as expected, naive, casual, and shallow; mouthing the same worn-out Marxist drivel he has been uttering for years. It’s obvious he couldn't care less!
He does not instill confidence!
The Army’s Chief of Staff instills even less! He said today that arming our presently defenseless troops could lead to “... accidental discharges and everything else that goes along with having weapons that are loaded that causes injuries.”
He is clearly afraid of guns, and further, obviously has no faith in the very small-arms training he had provided to our troops. Criminals with loaded guns apparently don’t concern him. But, the prospect our own guys with loaded guns frightens him to death!
The world used to respect our armed forces (when they were “armed”). We were always righteous, bold, audacious, and unafraid!
These are the four Marines murdered by islamic jihad. How long will we put up with this?
Why didn't these men have guns to defend themselves? Why are we sacrificing our heroes to the barbarians? I have had enough. Have you?
"This takes place in England - the owners of the yard added each piece of the Rube Goldberg contraption slowly so that when the squirrel learned one section and got the nuts, they then added the nextsection. Finally it ended with what you see on the clip! It took over 2 weeks to get to this point."
A) I consider the Confederacy a preliminary, exploratory exercise, leading up to the actual campaign (which is coming).
B) I consider the Confederate (Rebel) Flag a useful symbol of current, sensible rebellion against our lawless rulers (the imperial president, the millionaires-club-congress, and the partisan, politicized judiciary).
It's use is not only appropriately historical, but it immediately separates friends from foes:
Anyone who embraces/accepts the flag is likely a friend.
Anyone who faints in horror at the very sight of it, is likely a drooling pwo-gwessive, or a lily-livered RINO.
It's a very handy symbol that way...!

I made these two points elsewhere, but I liked 'em so much, I thought I'd post them here.
"Dear Washington DC:
It’s over. We’re leaving. We aren't asking your permission to leave.
We aren’t asking for a legal divorce.
We’re just ending this relationship right here and now.
We’re rescinding the authority we gave you in 1788.
Leave us alone.
