    That is pretty funny. Almost like answering by saying that it depends on what your definition of “is” is. In this case, however, theses two are commedians in Australia.

    That was a stitch. Reminds me of “Who’s on First” with Abbott and Costello.

    Take a look if you have time and have never seen it. It is hysterical.

    Marie, that was my first thought too. Must have been the delivery.

  5. It’s actually a spoof that aired on an Australian Comedy Show

  6. info

    Lake Co. sheriff says 21.5% of jail inmates illegal immigrants. Curran said they are charged with half of the 14 murders in the county so far this year.

    info for info,
    Fed Chairman says worst financial crisis ever, even worse than the great Depression.

    I’d like to know how PWConservative and AWCheney feel about Chairman Stewart’s claim that the poster ‘Advocator’ on bvbl was some anonymous person when he knew that it is Robert Duecaster. He tried this before with the dog-for-sale thread when he claimed it was anonymous posters when in fact it was Greg.

    If Corey can’t be trusted with these little things then there’s no sense trusting him with the big things.

    Little things become big things. These sort of things might be funny to some but to many they are not. It is best to err on the side of caution. Corey has not learned this axiom of life.

    The cat is now out of the bag and Corey cannot lie and deny. Mr. Duescaster is on committee. Ok. Time to move on. He will be be held more accountable now. I suppose his position could be likened to standing in the spot-light as long as he serves on this committee.

    I have heard that Mr. Duecaster is a very intelligent, productive man. I am hoping he will use his talents to improve Prince William County.

    Thanks for the delivery of the daily barf. How about some news that is relevant to us?

    Info, you could be doing something really positive here. I would love some local news. How about some ‘droppings’ from the Wall Street Journal? That seems to be relevant these days.

    I guess that news just goes to prove that our undocumented immigrants are classier than those outside Chicago. Not so many goons and thugs as ijn Illinois.

  11. The South will rise again.

    In a recent article in Raleigh’s The News & Observer, Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell was quoted calling Mexicans “trashy,” accusing Latinos of “breeding like rabbits,” and stating, “When people think about illegal Mexicans, you know the first thing they think of? Driving drunk and shooting.”

    These are just snippets from Bizzell’s interview. It’s difficult to decide what’s worse:

    * That Bizzell had absolutely no problem engaging in massive stereotyping and Latino-bashing for days on end in front of a reporter?.
    * That Bizzell clearly doesn’t know, is deliberately ignoring, or is blatantly fibbing about an important fact-that crime rates in his county have actually gone down since immigrants have been migrating to the area. According to the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the rate of violent crime has dropped by half, and property crimes have also fallen.
    * Or that every possible rationale for Bizzell’s statements is disturbing. He either actually believes what he is saying or he is pandering to voters. Either way, he is stoking intolerance and hatred against a group of his constituents (11% of them, in fact) in a state already experiencing the consequences of anti-immigrant sentiment.

    Most astonishingly, Bizzell claims at the end of the article that he wanted to “build trust” in the growing immigrant community. Way to outreach, Steve.

    Mackie, I don’t know of an “anti immigrant group,” do you? Apparently you do, please tell me the name of that group(s).

  13. freedumb,

    All anti-illegal-immigrant groups are anti-immigrant groups in disguise.

    A True American would understand that.

  14. Turn PW Blue

    Actually, freedom, taking Mackie’s hyperbole aside, groups like FAIR and NumbersUSA are anti-immigrant groups.

    From FAIR’s Website:

    FAIR advocates a temporary moratorium on all immigration except spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens and a limited number of refugees.

    and:

    [FAIR’s] goals: … to set legal immigration at the lowest feasible levels

    From NumbersUSA:

    Undergirding our work are beliefs in environmental sustainability, economic justice, the rule of law, and individual liberty, and opposition to federal immigration policies that threaten these values by forcing massive U.S. population growth.

    It is worth noting that NumbersUSA, in particular, is very much opposed to the current levels of *legal* immigration and makes little distinction on its site between legal and illegal immigration.

    Now, freedom, we could also rattle off some of the more traditional “hate” groups that are virulently anti-immigrant (KKK, Aryan Nation, etc.), but that really wasn’t what you were aiming for, was it?

    Good to see you, Turn PW Blue. You have been missed. Thanks for your contribution.
