    Gotta research this abit


    Sovereignty Watch [Mark Krikorian]

    The U.N. is sending its "Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants" to spank Virginia's Prince William County about having the temerity to help enforce immigration laws. It should come as no surprise that the person in question, one Jorge Bustamante, is not only a sociologist but also a lifelong advocate for open borders between the U.S. and Mexico. (He's also the father of Mexico's dual-citizenship law.) He presented a report (Word document) to the U.N. Human Rights Council earlier this year in effect saying the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws was a violation of human rights:
    In light of numerous issues described in this report, the Special Rapporteur has come to the conclusion that the United States has failed to adhere to its international obligations to make the human rights of the 37.5 million migrants living in the country (according to Government census data from 2006) a national priority, using a comprehensive and coordinated national policy based on clear international obligations. The primary task of such a national policy should be to recognize that, with the exception of certain rights relating to political participation, migrants enjoy nearly all the same human rights protections as citizens, including an emphasis on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable groups.
    But this is tame compared to the language he uses in the Mexican press. In this story and this one from just last month, he compares U.S. immigration enforcement to — wait for it — the Nazis. In the second one he says that unless there is an amnesty, "the probabilities are greater each day that xenophobia will triumph in the United States, with the consequent Nazi-style arbitrary detentions and deportations."
    The worst part? This interference in our internal affairs only takes place "upon the invitation of the Government"our government. Whom do we fire in the State Department for this?

    Not sure where to put this.

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/06/05/....ap/index.html

    HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) -- A 78-year-old man is tossed like a rag doll by a hit-and-run driver and lies motionless on a busy city street as car after car goes by. Pedestrians gawk but appear to do nothing. One driver stops briefly but then pulls back into traffic. A man on a scooter slowly circles the victim before zipping away...

    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    ^^ File it under people suck Orang. I helped an older lady push her car out of the street a few weeks ago. She was right in traffic.. hood up.. sitting in the car as people drove by drinking their latte's and talking on their cell phones. Some were obviously angry she had the gall to break down in their way and make them drive around her. She'd been there some time when I drove up and it's a fairly busy side street. I'm not sure how people can live with themselves sometimes.
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    I saw the video of that tonight... the guy was jaywalking, yeah... but jeez, now he's paralized from the neck down and in critical. Guys walked across the street on foot, looked down at him, and kept on walking. Flat out appalling. I'm not much of a fan of East Coast attitude, and this just reinforces that bias 'nStuff...

I thouroughly enjoy jacking on the brakes, to let people go thru the crosswalk. Wakes up a lot of people behind me.Oh yeah ,and I do exactly 25mph down main st too.
