Taylor Hicks

Congrats to the American Idol winner.

Here's a question. When we grant amnesty to the criminal element that entered this country illegally, what does that say to those law abiding potential immigrants who have been waiting their turn to come to this country in a legal manner?

Just a thought.

Social Security For Illegals

See how your Senator voted. Here's the roll call vote. Ol' BC is disappointed but not surprised. Talk about rewards for breaking the law. This vote confirms it.

Just an observation.

Mayor Nagin...Again?

If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. I was told this once in a class I was attending. Looks like New Orleans likes what they've been getting. Time for the Crescent City to quit whining and get on with life.

Just an observation.

It Really Is A Start

Michelle Malkin says Same Old, Same Old, but Ol' BC thinks Dubya is trying to come up with a plan that will work. He talks about assimilation, learning English, earning citizenship and no amnesty. I think he's on the right track. Perfect? Probably not. A little late? Absolutely. But it's a step in the right direction and Dubya had the balls to put forth a suggestion and go on the record.

Just an observation.

Illegal Aliens - Still In The News

Earlier today, Ol' BC was on his way home from the grocery store when the radio went to commercial. Now, being Ol' BC, I simply changed the channel. Then again and again until I stumbled upon a talk show with a caller on the line. Naturally, I paused. Interestingly enough the caller had a heavy latino accent. He was telling of his parents immigrating legally to the United States and how proud he is to be an American. He did a tour in the United States Marine Corps to defend this country he appreciates so much. Then he went on a bit of a rant against the illegal aliens. He didn't go softly on the the illegal part. He called them out clearly. It seems this gentleman had been in a automobile accident and spent some time in the hospital. Sharing his room was an illegal who had been in the hospital nearly two months. It seems they treated the illegal and sent him home, while the caller is still facing bankruptcy after taking a second mortgage on his home for all he could get and trying to pay his hospital bills. This one latino gentleman smashed all the stereotypes the MSM puts forth about all the support for illegals in the latino community. He spoke about higher insurance and hospital costs he is forced to pay to cover the illegals' care. Then the discussion turned to about half the states giving in state tuition to illegal immigrants. This prompted a mini explosion. Where is the black community in this discussion? Their silence is deafening. One would think if there was going to be any abatements on tuition for minorities, they would at least want them handed out to those minorities who pay into the
system. Instead those black minority students are going to be paying higher in state and out of state tuition to cover the illegals' discounts. Hmmm. Maybe this will sink in to one of the Reverends (Jesse or Al) one of these days so the issue can be brought to the forefront.

Just a thought.

Happy Mothers' Day all you mothers out there. Hope you have a grand and glorious day!!

Latinos Loafed, Did Anybody Notice?

Not around Ol' BC's neck of the woods. Life went on as usual. I did hear of a group watching this situation very closely. They were talking about getting a very large crime group together if the illegal aliens are granted immunity. If they can get a group of a couple million bank robbers and car theives they figure the government may forgive all the crimes since they would be trying to get money to improve their lives and that of their families. Stay tuned.
