MINUTEMEN BAG 18 ILLEGALS ON DAY ONE"Volunteers for an effort to patrol the Mexican border reported their first sighting of suspected illegal immigrants, resulting in 18 arrests, authorities said Sunday. Participants in the Minuteman Project spotted the migrants Saturday near Naco as the volunteers were surveying the border to familiarize themselves with area. When agents arrived, they apprehended 18 people, Border Patrol spokesman Andy Adame said."- Associated Press, 4/5/05

BOOSTING JOHN BOLTON"John Bolton's nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations got aboost this week when 59 ex-diplomats sent a letter to the Senate opposing his appointment. Along with North Korea's reference to Mr. Bolton as 'humanscum' and John Kerry's passionate disapproval, what more could the Senate want by way of recommendation?"- Wall Street Journal editorial, 3/31/05
*************************
WHAT'S IN SANDY'S PANTS"Far from merely taking copies of national security documents to 'refresh'his memory about Clinton administration anti-terrorism policies, (formerClinton National Security Adviser Sandy) Berger took five different versionsof a review of the Clinton team's record on terrorism written in 2000 byWhite House aide Richard Clarke. Each version contained unique handwritten notes or markings made by various high-level recipients of the memo. In other words, each copy could reveal the responses of various key administration players to Mr. Clarke's analysis of how the Clinton administration had responded to the rising threat of attacks on the U.S. homeland. For reasons known only to himself, Mr. Berger shredded three of the five versions of the memo in his office."- John Fund, Political Diary, 4/1/05
***************************
IS THAT YOUR WRIST? HERE, LET ME SLAP IT"For a guy who stole and destroyed classified government papers and thenlied about it, Sandy Berger is getting off light. Federal officials sayBerger has plea-bargained his way to no jail time, an infinitesimal $10,000 fine, surrender of his security clearance for three years and a promise to cooperate with investigators. A judge must okay the deal; if justice means anything he won't."- Lyn Nofziger, Musings, 4/1/05

FOOL-PROOF"One thing we do know about abstinence is that if you practice it, you will not have an unintended pregnancy or risk catching a sexually transmitted disease."- Bill Pierce of the Department of Health and Human Services, AssociatedPress, 4/1/05
****************************
STUPIDITY VIRUS STRIKES PUBLIK SKOOLS"At Daniels Farm Elementary School in Trumbull, Conn., (principal Gail) Karwoski's teachers grade papers by giving examples of better answers for those students who make mistakes. But that approach meant the kids often found their work covered in red, the color that teachers long have used to grade work. Parents objected. Red writing, they said, was 'stressful.'"The principal said teachers were just giving constructive advice and the color of ink used to convey that message should not matter. But some parents could not let it go.So the school put red on the blacklist. Blue and other colors are in. 'It's not an argument we want to have at this point because what we need is the parents' understanding,' Karwoski said...."The color has become so symbolic of negativity that some principals and teachers will not touch it. 'You could hold up a paper that says 'Greatwork!' and it won't even matter, if it's written in red,' said JosephForiska, principal of Thaddeus Stevens Elementary in Pittsburgh. He has instructed his teachers to grade with colors featuring more'pleasant-feeling tones' so that their instructional messages do not come across as derogatory or demeaning."At Public School 188 in Manhattan, 25-year-old teacher Justin Kazmark grades with purple, which has emerged as a new color of choice for many educators, pen manufacturers confirm. 'My generation was brought up on right or wrong with no in between, and red was always in your face,' Kazmark said. 'It's abrasive to me. Purple is just a little bit more gentle. Part of my job is to be attuned to what kids respond to, and red is not one of those colors.'"- Associated Press, 4/5/05
****************************
YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID"How on Earth are we preparing our kids for the real world when we're worried about their (and their parents') self-esteem over the color of ink used to grade their papers? We're turning out another generation ofignorant candy asses who will be completely unable to discern the difference between a private investment account and one controlled by the government.I ask you to consider the chances our nation has to survive in freedom and liberty so long as we depend on the government to educate our children."- Talk show host Neal Boortz

FAMOUS LAST WORDS"If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power ofCongress.... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America."- James Madison

More "bullets" about random subjects.....

TODAY'S REAL MONEY QUOTE"In short, S.359, the Craig-Kennedy Agricultural Job Opportunity, Benefits, and Security Act of 2005 (better known as the AgJobs bill), amounts to an amnesty for a class of illegal aliens. While the proponents insist it is something else - for example, 'hard-earned legalization' - there is nogetting around the fact it hugely rewards people for coming to this country illegally. And, as we have seen with previous, misbegotten immigration amnesties, the effect is to encourage more people to do so."- Frank Gaffney Jr. of the Center for Security Policy
**************************
PLUGGING BORDER HOLES "Dozens of would-be illegal aliens sat huddled in the desert less than a mile south of the U.S.-Mexico border late Sunday night, stopped by a blockade of civilian volunteers protesting the government's immigration enforcement policies," reports the Washington Times today. "So far, 118 illegal aliens have been arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol based on calls from Minuteman volunteers along a 20-mile stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border,where limited patrols began Friday."Who would have thought that simply monitoring the border would deter illegal crossings? Duh.-Chuck Muth

A bunch of "bullets" on many subjects.....

WHO TO BLAME"So when you pull up to the pump this week and see that you're paying almost$2.50 for a gallon of gas, don't blame George Bush....don't blame the oilcompanies....and don't blame the gas station. Blame your friendly neighborhood environmental leftist who won't allow any new refineries to be built and opposes oil exploration in this country at every turn."- Talk show host Neal Boortz

A TALE OF TWO LIARS "Martha Stewart went to jail for lying to federal investigators. But for lying after stealing highly classified documents from the National Archives - in an apparent attempt to alter the historical record on terrorism, no less - former Clinton national security adviser and Kerry campaign adviser Sandy Berger will get a small fine and slap on the wrist. He will pay $10,000 and get no jail time. His security clearance will besuspended until around the end of the Bush administration -- meaningless for a career Democrat like Mr. Berger. It makes us wonder who at the Department of Justice is responsible for letting such a serious offense go virtually unpunished."- Washington Times editorial, 4/5/05
****************************
Where is the feminist movement? Oh, Samuel "Sandy the Burglar" Berger is aliberal. Hypocrites!

SHAFTING VETERANS "Many military veterans were shocked to see that the federal budget for 2006makes several cuts in veterans benefits and services. Under the proposed budget, the Veterans Administration will increase once again the co-pay costof prescription drugs, while adding a new annual fee for medical benefits.The budget also calls for the reduction of veterans home funding and limits the number of VA nursing home beds. Some members of Congress have even suggested rewriting the definition of 'veteran' in a way that could deny VA health benefits for millions of retired servicemen."...It's easy to talk about honoring veterans and their sacrifices, evenwhile the federal government treats veterans badly. Congress wastes billions of dollars funding countless unconstitutional programs, but fails to provide adequately for the men and women who carry out the most important constitutional function: national defense."- Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), Texas Straight Talk, 4/4/05
****************************
CROCK THE VOTE"(The Rock the Vote) people are actually selling 'I love Social Security' bumper stickers, shirts and more. Is there a better way to show your friends and neighbors that you have completely lost all touch with reality?Here we have a system where they have to cough up 14% of their earnings every single paycheck, and that money is either (a) sent to current SocialSecurity recipients; or, (b) spent by the Congress on some of theirvote-buying schemes. In return for your so-called 'contribution' you aretold that you will receive some sort of a benefit when you reach a certainage. The benefit is not guaranteed, and the age can be changed. And you're supposed to love this system?"- Talk show host Neal Boortz
