take this job and

Why is it that all the pundits, immigration lawyers, and assorted advocates who repeat the mantra; "we need illegal immigrants because they take jobs Americans won't take" are well fed, well off , secure people with medical insurance. We are never introduced to a poor person making this claim.

times that try mens brains

In a month when the U N has collected more charitable contributions than ever Koffi Annan has the gall to ask for more aid to distribute to corrupt governments in guise of helping poor people. When George Bush proposes an amnesty program for illegal aliens. When the iraqi police can't defend themselves. When it turns out the EPA illegally declared the salmon in Klamath Falls endangered directly ruining the lives of the people of the area and indirectly causing the death of four firefighters. When the euro is worth thirty percent more than the dollar. When Washington pols celebrate lavishly . When outsourcing of jobs is epidemic. Doesn't it seem stupid that political figures can play churlish partisan games to salve their egos.

springing to oblivion

The far left has another spokesperson, Jerry Springer. The group just doesn't get it, while many people may embrace "values" on a religous basis and rail against homosexuals and abortion others ,some atheists included, take ''values" to mean a revulsion against tackyness. If there is one public figure who epitomizes this lowest common denominator it's Jerry Springer :although the guy who thought it funny to paste the head photos of supreme court justices on top of full frontal sagging nude bodies sure gives him a sophmoronic run for the post.

jan egland of th u n

Jan is a real prize.He opens his mouth and inanities trip forth.The latest observation from this oracle is that nature is more of a danger than terrorists. I must assume this is a call for the U.S to act to thwart natural phenomena. Shall we start with capping volcanoes, diverting tornadoes and hurricanes, perhaps, prohibiting earthquakes . Methane gas is a green house gas and is produced by almost all living creatures perhaps we could get all the fauna to refrain from flatulence, of course ,that would only stop the gas from one orifice. We'd still have Jan.

(A)lways (P)redictable

Some embittered voter in the midwest is calling for a boycott of all goods and services on inaugeration day. Nobody would even be aware of this poor lost soul if A P in its infinite wisdom didn't somehow find this individual and deem notice of his action important enough for a story. Which ,of course, was dutifully reprinted on AOL. There must not be enough going on in the world to keep A P reporters busy.

Enabling Horror

Consdidering the actions of U N troops in the Congo, rape and corruption, I find it difficult to accept the turnover to the U N of humanitarian efforts in Sri Lanka ,Thailand,and Indonesia with any degree of equanimity.

boxed in

Senator Barbara Boxer, a cheerleader whose team lost, says the officials were bribed. I really can't blame Ms. Boxer the media treats elections like football games and hypes the event so that partisans , like football fans lose all sense of perspective. Still, to see a senator so divorced from reality that she embraces conspiracy theories and weeps over the outcome of an election reflects very poorly on the stability of elected officials.
