MINUTEMEN DELAYED The new Minuteman volunteer border-monitoring project scheduled to begin in August along the California/Mexico border has been set back by six weeks.Not because of roadblocks or opposition by the White House and theACLU...but because organizers are being swamped with volunteers who want to take part in the effort. "We want to avoid preparing for 1,000 volunteersand having 3,000 show up," said a project organizer.The California effort is now scheduled to begin on September 16...Mexican Independence Day. How ironic is that?-
BORDER JOKE Did you hear the one about the illegal aliens crossing the border fromMexico into the United States chasing down Border Patrol agents begging tosurrender?Why? Because the word is out that once picked up and given a "notice toappear" at an immigration hearing, aliens then have a legal right to be inthe U.S. Of course, they don't bother to show up for their hearing, knowing that once in-country, the odds of being sent back are about agazillion-to-one.Only about 12 percent of aliens issued a "notice to appear" citation actually ever show up for their hearings. This scam is so common-place thatBorder Patrol agents now refer to the immigration citations as "notices to disappear."-
"IS YOUR SECURITY GUARD AN ILLEGAL ALIEN?"Is the private security guard watching over your home or office an illegal alien? If so, is the government doing enough to fix the problem? These questions must be asked because the inspector general (IG) of the Social Security Administration has discovered that a California-based securityguard company employed 4,321 people in 2001 whom the company did not correctly identify on W-2 forms, often an indicator that a worker is anillegal alien. The IG's office, however, believes current law prevents it from identifying this company not only to the public but also to the Department of Homeland Security and the State of California.

BIG GUVAMINT "We've never supported drug legalization, even in its 'medical marijuana' drag. Still, we can't help but feel uneasy about the Supreme Court's 6-3 decision Monday in Gonzales v. Raich, which held that the federal government can trump state laws permitting the possession and cultivation of small quantities of cannabis for purely personal use. . . . This was not a good decision for anyone who believes there are Constitutional limits on the federal leviathan."

"WHAT HAVE FEMINISTS DONE TO AMERICA'S FATHERS?"On Father's Day, Americans should ponder the appalling fact that an estimated 40 percent of our nation's children are living in homes without their own father. Most of our social problems are caused by kids who grow upin homes without their own fathers: drug abuse, illicit sexual activity,unwed pregnancies, youth suicide, high school dropouts, runaways, and crime.Where have all the fathers gone?
