(b) Bloggings On Dysfunctional Government

Angelo A. Paparelli writes "The attorney-client privilege
prevents me from reporting the facts on the ground with specific
details but I know from countless experiences that when
businesses hire the best brains and talents without regard to the
serendipity of country of birth, creativity, innovation and
profits all increase.",0219-paparelli.shtm

(c) Bloggings on Deportation And Removal

Matthew Kolken writes "The following is a clip from an original
Immigration Equality documentary that highlights the impact of
discriminatory immigration laws on the lives of lesbian and gay

(a) Dear Editor:
In this forum, I'm glad for whatever agreement there is in
regards to the Letters of 2/18/10 ID. I hope that the letter of
JSDO ILuonakhamhe is not subject to the vitriolic hate mail and
death threats as was Tom Tancredo when he spoke of voting
literacy tests.* It is too bad that the letters of R. Algase, who
lived in AZ at a young age, did not remain there as it is likely
that there would be a retention of the reasoned logic that the
letters fantasy comparison is lacking.* Does the letter believe
that speeding laws in areas of Latinos are discriminatory against
them because of their skin color?* Such "logic" grants special
privileges to minorities based upon a false foundation.* This is
the diversion and phony nature of most "racial profiling"
charges.* Speed laws apply to all for the safety of society and
so would voting literacy* tests, fairly administered. The latter
is a prerequisite for any law. The failure racial mix therefrom
is random and immaterial as such laws are neutral.* The letters
of RA could find racist meanings in the brown skin of a potato
which really is "so far away from reality".* In response to the
D. Murray letter, "What's wrong with that?", the answer is plenty
from citizens and restrictionists viewpoint.* While being against
CIR as an "unworkable scheme" is on target, the postponement of
it, LIR changes, and the mere promise of shutting the door "to
future illegal immigration" are not.* There is nothing to stop US
from ending illegal entry or reducing legal entry now except the
will to do so without once again using it as a false bargaining
chip for more entry. Amnesty, now or later, is not the legal
remedy for illegal entry, removal is, as the Jon Christian Ryter
article: "Operation Wetback" discusses three Presidents removal
campaigns when past efforts were to preserve jobs for US, not
