  • While the Obama administration and Congress putz around unable to pass any comprehensive laws against illegal immigration, it appears the laws passed by states to tackle the problem are working. USA TODAY reported illegal immigration from Mexico has decreased. Although the recession and lack of jobs available in the U.S. has played a part, it's also clear the laws like those in Arizona, Alabama, Indiana, Texas and Utah are having a positive impact on reversing migration.  According to the Pew Hispanic Center, from 2005-2010, 1.4 million Mexicans came to the United States. This was down by more than half from the 3 million that came here from 1995-2000. In addition, from 2005 to 2010, the number of Mexicans who moved from the United States back to Mexico rose by 1.4 million.
  • Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will be considering Arizona's tough illegal immigration law. We should have a decision by early June.
  • Ron Artest, now known as Metta World Peace of the LA Lakers, said he accidentally elbowed James Harden of Oklahoma City. This is the same knucklehead who has a history of brawling (he was suspended for 77 games in 2004 because he also punched out a spectator). I have a suggestion for Artest. Change your name to World Dick Head.
  • Medicare and Social Security trust funds are broke. If that's not bad enough, the government reported yesterday, both will even be "broker" by 2024 and 2033 respectfully. Yet, Congress and the Obama administration still refuse to tackle this impending problem. In fact, the government reported both are on  "unsustainable paths." I believe the president said the same thing about the debt (now approaching $16 trillion). That's why it's imperative that we also need change in Congress as well as in the Oval Office.

  • Almost everyone knows that the former governor of New Jersey, Jon Corzine, not only left New Jersey broke, but he also appears to have left his former company, MF Global, broke.  Corzine has been a major fundraiser for the Obama campaign in the past. Well, he's still raising money for the Obama campaign---to the tune of $500 grand.  Although the Obama administration has been trying to distance itself from Corzine, it appears they still like the money he raises for it.  By the way, this fake, phony and fraud was once considered for the treasury secretary position---now held by another tax dodger.

  • President Obama is visiting university campuses pushing for Congress extend the student loan bill. Politico reported today---when he was a senator---he missed the voting to extend the student loan bill.
  • "Recession is Over News": US house prices FELL in February. The eighth straight month. Sales of new homes also fell last month. Output of U.S. factories declined in March. All of these and more (including last week's jobs report) suggest the economy continues to be very sluggish.

  • Did you know the War on Terror is over? Yep, that's what a senior State Department official told Michael Hirsh of the National Journal. As they try to convince us the War on Terror is over, there's a trial of Islamic radical thugs in NYC who admitted planning to blow up buildings and bridges in New York city. And I wonder what our troops in Afghanistan would say. Gee---whom to believe?
  • You probably never heard of Mathew Owens. But you should. He was attacked with chairs, pipes and paint cans by 20 African Americans  on his front porch in Alabama this week. Owens' sister reported, as the thugs walked away leaving her brother on the ground, one of them said, "Now that's justice for Trayvon." Owens is in critical condition. Sharpie Sharpton was nowhere to be seen. WKRG News 5

  • Jon Lovitz, formerly of SNL, appears to be very unhappy with Obama even though he voted for him. In a recent interview, he said: "This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is f**king bullsh!t and I voted for the guy and I'm a Democrat. What a f**king a$$hole." I wonder how many jobs Lovitz expects to get in Hollywood in the future. I have to give the guy credit for guts. I would guess he went from believing in "Hope and Change" to believing in "Hope for Change." Huffington Post

  • No, that's not Buckwheat above. It's Cynthia McKinney. In case you missed the news, former congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, plans on running for Congress again on the Green Party ticket. Allow me to shake your memory. She's the one who got in a dustup with the Capital Police several years ago. She also said Pres. Bush knew of the 9/11 attacks beforehand. She said he wanted to benefit politically and economically from the attacks. She hired an anti-Semite on her staff and cozied up to Louis Farrakhan. She adds new meaning to the term knucklehead. She can best be identified as a Communist Progressive. Brietbart

  • Speaking of great TV characters, that's Keith Olberman above on the left when he worked for ESPN. He looked like a dick even back then.
