It seems to me that this issue should be one of the biggest for the police though, because illegals commit so many crimes.

There's no doubt that Vice also dreams of closing down the dialogue between the administration and Muslim world. This is pivotal. Vice, I know how you can do it. Start talking up the fact that not only is Globama still in Iraq and surging in Afghanistan, but he doesn't even talk about exporting democracy the way you and W. do.
As Bush's excursion and then his plane slowly took off over Washington for the last time, I quietly went to my bed and put the covers over my eyes. The tears fell. I was sad about losing Laura, family values, and especially my beloved pro-life movement.
I couldn't have known that as that plane lifted off in a direction not far from my home, Cheney's plane was touching down in Washington for the first time since September 11.

I wanted to be the biggest, baddest pro-choice liberal in 1993. I adored Miss Hillary, and wanted to go to Wellesley like she had. I wished I could have protested Vietnam. Seen Woodstock in a VW bus. Been a flower child. And I daydreamed about studying law like Hillary. And being pro-choice.
I was a freshman in high school and a fan of The Real World: San Francisco at the time. Pedro and Puck were fighting every week, and for the first time, I saw AIDS up close. But, it would be Rachel Campos who I would seek to emulate.
Rachel Campos became my biggest hero. I tried to fight it with every fiber of my being, but I couldn't help but adore the pro-life Republican.
At the very same time, something unexpected happened that would change my political leanings forever. "Baby Sarah" survived an attempted abortion by Dr. Tiller in Kansas.
During the attempted abortion, Baby Sarah turned away from the needle. So instead of injecting the lethal drug into Baby Sarah's heart, Tiller injected it into the side of her head. This left her alive but blind. The trauma caused her mother to deliver early. Baby Sarah was born in the parking lot at Wesley Medical Center where hospital staff left her to die. A day later she was still alive. A hospital employee took pity on her, and she was adopted a few hours later by the Brown family. Baby Sarah died a few years later due to complications caused by the attempted abortion.
I kept trying to fight my Rachel Campos complex over the years. Each time it stared me in the face that I was a Republican masquerading as a rebellious left wing liberal, I tried to bravely run with the liberal agenda. I discredited the idea of voting on the single issue of abortion by telling myself that Al Gore would save our planet. That John Kerry understood the Vietnam veterans more than Bush ever could. That Hillary's health care plan wasn't so bad.
But, I kept coming back to Baby Sarah.
Those big puppy dog brown eyes begging Dr. Tiller to just slow down. Breathe in life. Just soak it in.
And then I forced myself to do the impossible. Be uncool.
Vote solely on abortion. Solely on abortion. With every election that became my goal. My duty.
Sometimes, we have a small baby shower for a teen mom who is changing her entire life for that growing baby bump.
Other times, a girl walks in beet red, almost hyperventilating with fear of the unknown. She walks out an hour later with a smile on her face, knowing that she now has support. That she can do this.
If only Dr. Tiller.
If only you had stopped counting the millions in earnings for just one second. If only you had stopped thinking you were so powerful with that perfect record of never killing the mother, as you carried out pre-meditated murder. If only you had considered the fact that you only performed 1 medically necessary emergency abortion out of 2289.
If only you had stopped and looked for those precious smiles in the mom-to-be. The ones that light up the room at Hope Clinic.

I should have expected it. Globama said something about wanting someone who understands poverty, racism, and homelessness, that can basically legislate from the bench 5% of the time. Well he got what he wanted. In a proof that she's a liberal activist judge, she's been reversed a lot.
It pains me so much that we went from mourning those who fought and died for our Constitution yesterday, to nominating a woman who thinks that the Constitution isn't as important as her own opinion. She gave a speech in 2001 declaring that the ethnicity and sex of a judge “may and will make a difference in our judging." The law itself doesn't seem to matter as much.
Call me crazy, but I thought that legislating was done by legislatures with the Constitution as The Bible. Not for Sonia Sotomayor. Apparently, she knows better than any tattered piece of paper. In a complete departure from the neutral arbitration so important to the law that it's almost a hippocratic oath, we have Sonia making plans to reinvent the Constitution according to her whims.
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” she said.
So now we get Sonia Sotomayor, because all that really matters to Globama is race.
Not the fact that she's about to be appropriately overturned on her ruling that a White firefighter should not be promoted, because Black guys scored lower on that promotion test, but heck those Black guys should get the job.
I get it.
Some of you may know that as a history major starting out in 1997 at Texas, I was headed towards law school. I quickly veered off that course and went towards biology, but kept the history I loved so much in play. Until now, you couldn't have known why I decided law was not for me.
You need only to look at law today to understand why. Our kids can't even go to public school because of lawyers. A teacher can't give a crying child a hug when she gets a boo-boo because of the law. In one recent instance, a teacher had to call the police instead so they could touch the child.
We have too many lawyers and judges who are not neutral arbitrators. For instance, the defendant in the Roe vs. Wade case was Norma Leah McCorvey, a.k.a. Jane Roe. Thanks to Roe vs. Wade, individual state's were no longer allowed to make decisions against abortion. This all happened because Ms. McCorvey's lawyers wanted the spotlight, and wanted someone to legislate from the bench on their behalf. They didn't care about Mrs. McCorvey or her rape.
Today, Ms. McCorvey is pro-life and wishes her decision was reversed. She wrote about fetal pain and love for babies after seeing a fetal development poster.
I have a feeling that Ms. McCorvey wishes everyday that we didn't have so many lawyers expecting legislation from the bench. She probably wishes that people would take up a profession in need like nursing, so we can avoid the ego of a Sonia Sotomayor whose so above the Constitution.
Oh Reagan, you did things right with Sandra Day O'Connor. A neutral arbitrator. And I love you Bush #2 for choosing way, way conservative John Roberts. A strict constitutionalist.
Pray with me today, dear readers. Pray that Ruth Bader Ginsburg survives her pancreatic cancer through all of the Globama terms. And that when she finally meets her maker or retires first, it's during a Republican presidential tenure. One can dream.

Thank goodness that we won't have to live in Stalingrad housing anytime soon, after all. I was fearful.
On healthcare, Barack seems to be doing a pretty good job of not being socialistic as well. Instead of nationalizing it, he wants to allow private insurance companies free reign to underinsure it's policyholders, but cash in on "universal coverage." The ObamaCare Plan. Less socialistic than Hill's plan.
It must be said that socialism is certainly not all bad.
There is something to be said for the fact that capitalism makes the rich, richer and the poor, poorer.
But, the fact is that socialism can never work. Anywhere. The very best countries believe in a free market economy and capitalism.
We are better than socialism gives us credit.
We have a right to dream bigger. I want to believe that at the end of the day, I can be anyone and do anything. And not have to worry that the government will take it all away. For the "greater good."
If you were left behind by capitalism, I can understand how you veered towards socialism. I've been "left behind" too.
But, we should want to dream bigger. I plan too. And I'll give Globama a chance in the process.
I have to say, I'm very impressed.
The Republicans have a real problem on their hands. And changing words like pro-choice aren't going to really make a difference.
Barack, I think Ronald would be proud of you tonight.

So first, there is no such thing as pro-choice. How did Republicans allow liberals to coin that term? Pro-choice is really pro-abortion. Let's change the words, and then hopefully change the agenda.
And there are no green jobs. I could hope desperately for one, to no avail. If there are any which I think is a myth, they are are going to China or India anyhow. So what's the point of buying into it?
Smart cars are not really smart. When your navigating a snowstorm with one of those, you will desperately wish for a bulky SUV. Let's get real.
At least we have learned a few things from the first 100 days. Obama didn't mind scaring the beejesus out of Mayor Bloomberg and millions of New Yorkers. He just had to do an Air Force One photo-op. Kind of makes you wonder how prepared we are for another attack, when he's not even sure where one of his planes is.
And we learned that healthcare has to take a backseat to the "agenda."
And that Globama has a special appreciation for the tiny country of Turkey, and their ability to get into the European Union.
We also found out that if another attack happens, we won't be allowed to find out about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's plans for Los Angeles. Because we won't be able to waterboard him anymore.
I'm at a loss to think of anything else this experience has taught us. Oh well, bottoms up. Globama is so cool.

I like the 2nd amendment. And it could have saved many lives on April 20, 1999. And on April 16, 2007. Imagine if Rachel Scott had a gun in her purse when Eric Harris ran in. Or if Matthew Ketcher had one hidden inside his little brown lunch bag.
I am so incredibly tired of hearing that guns are the problem in America. We have them and it's too late. It's too late. And it's a problem that we have so many of them.
But, let us use those guns when it's necessary. Make it so that kids who always follow the rules, don't have to lose their lives for it.
About 8 to 10% of teenagers are depressed. Diverting the public's allegiance from protecting these teens through suicide prevention, to focusing on gun control is so irresponsible.
Better psychiatry could have saved his life. And Grandma too.
Or was it inevitable?
We'll never really know.
But a lack of gun control was not the culprit.

He was busy this weekend, people. Busy buying a Portugese water dog, instead of the mutt he promised America for Sasha and Malia.
Because we all deserve to have a yard like this one pictured below.

Maureen Dowd for one thing. Using the pulpit of The New York Times to say that Globama is the first president who like a good shrink, listens. Umm....no. He seems to be listening, but doesn't like to listen to history. The most important thing.
A perfect example was O's infamous quote that, "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens."
And the Founding Fathers screamed.
This nation was founded on moral, Judeo-Christian principles. End of story.
And I am so tired of the fact that Globama seeks to make himself our new religion. Our country cannot get much more secular. And yet there is hope. Many people will be attending services for Passover, Jummah, and Good Friday today.
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We shall not fight alone. God presides over the destinies of nations." - Patrick Henry
We were founded on Christian principles. Indeed, we were the most moral nation in the world until very recently. In order to get back to our former glory, there is something we must start feeling guilty about.
Tonight at Good Friday services I will light 126 candles. For the unborn 126,000 babies that we lost to abortion today. The babies that I would die to hold in my arms.

My inner Ann Coulter and Maureen Dowd is emerging from the fog. Perplxin Texan wanted me to find something sexy about myself to write about. Well, I can think of nothing sexier Perplxin than a genius, political writer like Maureen Dowd from The New York Times. Of course, I'm not nearly as smart as she is, nor was I blessed with red hair. Watch me try and fail miserably.
The point of all of this is simple. Crazy things come out of my imagination at 4:00 am, people.
