China charges U.S. monopolizes the Internet, seeks global control

So China is pissed that the country that paid the research money and invented the internet still has a good deal of control over it????

Hey China, disconnect from the American internet and start your own! It will make controlling content (and people) much easier!

I also invite any other countries that doesn't like the US control to disconnect and start their own internet.

Queen Dubs Bill Gates Honorary British Knight

So on one hand the EU determines that Microsoft has been using monopolitstic practices to unfairly hurt competition and on the other hand, we have Britian giving him knighthood! The only thing I can think of is that Billy G. must have paid someone dearly for that honor.

I used to think knighthood was something special to honor good deeds and achievements, but why is Bill of Borg being honored? Well, "...had been awarded in recognition of his contributions to both business and charity" is the answer! I REALLY relish the "contributions to business" line, that's funny! The only contributions to business that Billy G. has done is to work hard at killing off competiton.

The charity thing? A smokescreen for a truely evil person.

Hidden History and Self-Destructive Southerners

Here is an excellent piece which exposes the efforts to re-write American history and eradicate Southern culture. Here's an excerpt:
    I am well aware of the concerted effort to erase Southern culture from the nation's collective consciousness. I have written numerous articles addressing this social cancer, and every time I do I inevitably hear from people who have the audacity to call me an extremist. "The Civil War is over," they say. "The South lost. Get over it!"

For those public-school-educated people who truely believe that the Civil War was fought over slavery, let me point out the proven fact that history is written by the victor.

Mexico Vows to Fight Migrant Patrol Project in U.S.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico will pursue legal action against plans by a U.S. citizens' group to patrol the U.S.-Mexican border in search of illegal immigrants, the country's foreign minister said on Monday.

Luis Ernesto Derbez said he asked lawyers in Los Angeles to draw up a legal strategy to fight the Arizona-based initiative called "the MinuteMan Project" that has signed up hundreds of volunteers for border patrols.

"We are going to attack by all legal means," Derbez told a news conference. "We are presenting the reasons why we consider this action to be incorrect and illegal from the point of view not only of our government but also under U.S. law."

So let me get this right, Mexico is going to use the American legal system to prevent American citizens from watching for illegals crossing the border. Well, since it's the 9th Circuit Court being used, we Americans will probably get shafted.

Myths of illegal immigration...

...studies claiming some modest overall gain for the economy from immigration ($1 to $10 billion a year) have found that it is outweighed by the fiscal cost ($15 to $20 billion a year) to native taxpayers." -

Myth 1: Illegals take jobs American won't because Americans are too lazy.
Truth: Illegals artifically force down pay by taking a job for less money. We live in a capitalist society where supply and demand control price. Americans will take any job if the pay is high enough. Illegals will take the job at a much lower pay and therefor allows employers to offer less pay for a given job. This is the exact same practice as dumping which is illegal.

Myth 2: Illegals contribute more to the American economy than they take.
Truth: Illegals cost the US far more money than they contribute. Follow these links:

Anti-gun activist arrested after firearm found at home

Why is it the anti-gun people are ALWAYS anti-gun for everyone else but themselves???

The jist of this story is-

This is the woman ( Annette "Flirty" Stevens) who was the founder of the Million Mom March. She has ties to various gang members and had her house searched because of a drive-by shooting investigation and aforementioned ties. The police found a pistol with the serial number eradicated and she admitted to having it. Her excuse was that it was her son's and when he died, she didn't know what to do with it so she kept it.

I call BS on that excuse because even the dumbest person knows that they can turn a gun into the police for disposal. Now, if you come back with the excuse "what if she was afraid to be arrested because it was used in a crime?", all I can say is don't be stupid. If it was her son's, he's dead and they can't charge him with a crime.

She is just the typical 'no guns for anyone (except me)' anti-gun person.
