Printed News Prediction

Political Correctness is getting out of hand. We aren’t allowed to stereotype for fear someone will be offended and the NAACP or some other organization will be knocking on our door seeking retribution. The only place you can get the truth anymore is the blogosphere because newspapers sure as heck don’t print it like it is.

Newspapers sugar coat everything by using words like youths, undocumented American, unidentified individuals, etc. The local news stations report stories that make you want to laugh or cry; but nothing that’s truly news worthy. No one will report Muslim extremist, illegal Mexican, poor black teen, or 18 year old white male because it’s stereotyping. Duh! Isn’t that the whole purpose of stereotyping? It’s meant to serve as a means to identify someone. If a person commits a crime how do you properly identity that person by saying a man robbed the bank? You must identify him! And if the only way you can do that is by stating his skin color or ethnicity-oh well!

I’m going to predict that printed newspapers will be totally obsolete in the near future. They don’t come close to printing real news anymore. They print what their so-called bosses tell them to and they comply because they have no backbones and leave us readers with stories with no substance. Bernie Goldberg hit the nail on the head…there are crazies on the left and wimps on the right! At least in the blogosphere you can get real stories with real substance and political correctness isn’t treated like a religion.

Deportation isn’t Difficult

A Tucson 9th grader and his family were deported after he was caught with marijuana in his backpack. When the principal met with the boys’ parents and asked for their driver’s licenses the parents admitted to being illegal immigrants. The border patrol was called and the mother and her 2 sons were escorted to the Mexican border for a voluntary return while the father was held for formal deportation because this wasn’t his first offense.

Tucson residents and some school officials were up in arms stating that people will hesitate to report crimes in the future if they think illegals can be deported. Some even stated that the punishment didn’t fit the crime. Um, excuse me, coming here under the cloak of darkness is a crime, strike one. Living here in the shadows is a crime, strike two. Not paying taxes is a crime, strike three. Possessing marijuana is a crime, strike four. The punishment doesn’t fit the crime? True. Because it’s crimes, as in plural.

If you aren’t here legally you need to be deported; so, the punishment does fit the crime-perfectly. For the record, I’m all for legal immigration. After all, most of us wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for legal immigrants. I, like most Americans, have a problem with illegal aliens. Taxes aren’t being paid, crimes are being committed, free aid is being exploited, and American Citizens’ identities are being stolen. Illegals are abusing our Country! I heard they don’t want to be called illegals anymore-comparing it to the “N” word and it hurts their feelings. They prefer Undocumented Americans. Pah-Leeze! They are illegal and I will refer to them as such. Hurt feelings be damned. If the illegal aliens want rights and privileges then they need to go through the system, legally, and become United States Citizens.

Until then-round them up and ship them back to their country. It is that simple.

The Menace of Convenience

I was shopping today; yes my life now consists of mommy things, shopping, writing, and my favorite-napping. Needless to say I’m in my glory…anyway, while in the checkout line I heard a baby wailing and I cringed. I have to explain myself and the cringing.

My 2nd son turned colicky at 3 weeks old and cried all the time plus he didn’t sleep straight through the night until he was almost 2. When I hear a baby cry in a store I immediately get all knotted up inside; so I try to get out of hearing distance of the sound, but if I can’t, I leave the store. Well, in this case I was already checking out and the mother of the wailer was now pushing a double stroller-double as in twins, out the door, so I relaxed and finished my task.

While I was loading my Jeep Liberty (I feel inclined to advertise I buy American), I spotted the woman with the twins and almost dropped my bags! She was at the rear of an SUV with 2 infant seats in the hatch and she was strapping those babies in those seats! I stood there, in the parking lot, with my mouth agape, not believing my eyes. How could she see them while driving? What if they choked on something? What if she got rear-ended? Then it dawned on me-if she couldn’t see them, she probably couldn’t HEAR them either. Not to mention it was a lot easier loading them in and out of the hatch than it was the back seat.

Now, I can totally relate to a whiny kid. Been there, done that, still sane-I think. However, there is no way I’d ever do anything UNSAFE for convenience. Anyone that knows me knows that my vehicle doesn’t move until all passengers are in their own seat, strapped in their own belt and no one under the age of 13 sits in the front. Rules are there for a reason and I do my best to follow them. Some family members think I’m a spaz. Well, at least I make my position known and stand by it-- no flip-flopping.

Being a safety spaz and seeing a woman strapping her babies in the hatch of an SUV made my head spin. How she secured those seats I’ve no idea; but at least her stroller was safe and sound in the back seat! I don’t know if this woman did this out of stupidity or convenience. Doesn’t matter much, those babies were NOT safe.

People have to get licenses to cut and dye hair and to drive and sell automobiles; but any moron can reproduce and raise a child. What the answer is I’m not sure. Too bad people don’t have to take a test before having children. Can you imagine how many would fail? As I’ve come to discern-convenience is more important than safety and common sense isn’t common.

Drivers Promote Safety not Licenses

Issuing driver’s licenses to ensure safety on the roads has to be the sorriest excuse the Democrats have come up with to date. This is just a guise to help pave the road to legalize those who are here illegally and no one is going to tell me otherwise.

Giving people driver’s licenses isn’t going to make them drive safer. How many licensed drivers do we have now that operate motor vehicles uninsured? Under the influence of alcohol or drugs? How many of those licensed drivers run red lights and stop signs? Speed through school zones? Or ignore speed limit signs altogether? It’s not licenses that make driving safer, it’s the drivers.

Democrats like to twist words but intelligent Americans know the facts. Issuing driver’s licenses doesn’t ensure anything except that illegals will have an easier way to get jobs, airline tickets, government hand-outs and voter registration cards.

Blogging Competition

I know I’ve said this before, I’m new to blogging, but when I was surfing the blogosphere and saw 2007 Web Awards I almost fell off my chair! There are actually awards for this, I thought to myself. I immediately began scouring the lists, Best Blog, Funniest Blog, Best of the top 250 Blogs (to name a few) and while scanning I found a few that I liked and linked to, Jon Swift, Bitch Ph.D, Woman Honor Thyself, Dating Profile of the Day and I am Bossy.

I’ve also been reading the competitions’ blogs and I must ask, What happened to a friendly contest? I’m all for triumph but does bashing qualify as a standard to achieving that victory? Why can’t the readers just vote every 24 hours for their favorite blog and whatever blog gets the most votes wins?

I suppose what I’m trying to say is…play nice Bloggers and be honored to be nominated; there are millions of blogs on the web and yours was at least chosen for a category-that’s awesome! Heck, I’d be thrilled with a vote for a nomination to get my blog nominated. I’d even take an award for Most Boring Blog or even Worst Blog, at least that would mean my blog was noticed. As it stands I’m still trying to get out of the gate.

Comment Etiquette

I’m fairly new to blogging so when I checked my blog and saw 2 comments I got excited! Imagine my dismay when I read…

#1. I agree. Do you have spell check?

#2. It should be “play” not “pay” in your blog. Get with the program. Buck.

These anonymous comments were about my “Hillary and the Big Boys” blog and I typed pay instead of play, which I caught and corrected prior to reading these comments. I can’t respond to my anonymous critics, but if I could here’s what I would say…

#1. This blog is about me and my opinions and no one has to agree; that’s the beauty of blogging. Yes, I have spell check, however ‘pay’ isn’t spelled incorrectly.

#2. Thanks for the heads up there, Buck. Sure glad you had time to step out of your life and let me know about a typo. By the way, what program am I to “get with”? You aren’t referring to the spell check program that #1 is talking about, are you? Maybe you could step out of your life again and clarify.

I’ve read a lot of blogs since I entered the blogosphere and I’ve seen many grammatical and punctuation errors, as well as typos, but I’ve never left a comment regarding such. Not only do I believe it’s a waste of time but I think it’s totally ignorant. I’m not sure, but I think leaving comments about an author’s English capabilities would be against blogging etiquette and if it’s not, it should be. But I’m not the blog police, so I’ll just follow my own conscience and not comment on anyone’s typographical errors and ignore those who comment on mine.

My blog does state feel free to comment and I do want feedback, however, I would like comments that contribute to my commentary or are actually constructive. Maybe I need to clarify that for those less fortunate in the cerebrum. Nevertheless, I feel pretty darn good-one typo, not too bad for a new blogger, if I do say so myself. In closing, feel free to comment if you have something substantial to contribute.

Hillary and the Big Boys

Hillary told her Alma mater that attending an all-women’s college helped prepare her for competition with the all-boys’ club of presidential politics. Well, I beg to differ. She can’t handle testosterone if she’s proclaiming from one side of her mouth she’s competent then on the other side she’s complaining the big boys are picking on her.

She can’t have it both ways. She can’t use the gender card when it’s convenient then declare she’s strong enough to run a nation. Hillary needs to straighten up if she really wants to play with the big boys. She needs to shred her gender card, shed her diaper and don a pair of big boy undies and get in the game. Or she can go find a playpen because pull-ups aren’t allowed on this court!

Accessorizing America

I need help, major insight, a life lesson or a brain transplant. I don’t understand, comprehend or even slightly grasp this trend of accessorizing the word American i.e. African-American, Asian-American, Latino-American, etc. I was under the impression that people traveled to America because it was the land of opportunity; a great country where one could start a better life.

I realize people want to hold onto their heritage and traditions but where is the pride in being an American? Becoming a citizen of the greatest country in the world is your badge of honor, so why wouldn’t you want to scream to the world I’m an American! I don’t understand down playing it by placing some other country before it. If your birth country was so great why did you come to the United States? Go back! If your language is more fluent and efficient than English then go back to your native country and speak your native language until your throat hurts because here in America we speak English. This press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish is for the birds. If it were up to me the recording would say: press 1 for English all others hang up.

But seriously now, if it were truly up to me there would be no recording only English speaking people on the other end of the telephone. I’m not concerned with offending anyone, either. Actually, I’m offended that my country has been hijacked by all these anti-Americans that want to change our national language, the family nucleus, and reconstruct, if not completely annihilate, our constitution.

It starts small with items like accessorizing America and making it a bi-lingual nation then builds to larger items like taking away our right to bear arms or limit our freedom of speech. All it’ll take is precedence, a greedy lawyer and a liberal judge. Sound far fetched? Well, even the illegals have rights and are accessorized. We can’t call them illegal aliens, that’s offensive ya know! They are Undocumented Americans. As I said, I need a major lesson because the only accessorizing we Americans should be concerned with is matching belts to boots.
