NoInvaders.Org Proves to be "Interesting" and "Useful" in its DebutWritten by Jim Wood
The immigration reform Web site "NoInvaders.Org" recently saw an escalation of Internet traffic on February 9, with an increase from 9 visits a day to 275 visits, and is maintaining a high traffic count daily thanks mostly to a press release sent in January to over 100 newspapers nationwide. The portal takes on unenviable task of publishing six directories including complaints of immigration violations, those who hire illegal aliens, and a "Good Employer" directory for those who use Basic Pilot Verification program to screen employee candidates for legal residency. A substantial number of visitors are identified as U.S government employees, and most notably, Department of Homeland Security, whose e-mail addresses end in "dhs.gov". Responses have been over 90% positive with many discussion board postings, recommended media sources, articles, and a plethora of "Bad Employer" contributions were made using employer sanctions database from cis.org. No threats were received but are anticipated as they are "protocol" for immigration reform Web sites. As founder and sole employee, I was interviewed by George Putnam on January 31 on L.A. radio's "Talk Back" and hope to pursue many radio interviews in future, as talk radio seems to be infatuated in reporting truth about illegal immigration. Dozens of people have signed up for my newsletter, who could be asked to e-mail radio personalities like KFI Los Angeles hosts "John and Ken" in order to request a future interview.
Bully for prohibitionistsWritten by Kurt St. Angelo
Imagine that I wanted you to quit gambling, or to stop smoking something, or to save more for your retirement. I have my reasons, okay? The world would be a much better place if it did things my way. I confront you on street while youíre smoking. I threaten you with a club until you put out your cigarette and give me rest of them, which I crumble into a trashcan. As I leave, you call police on your cell phone to report me for armed robbery.
The next day, a few of my well intentioned homeys and I confront you again about your bad habit. After we take your new pack ďfor your own good,ď you report our felonious gang activity.
Over next several days, my gang gets bigger and bigger until it acts like a mob. You call police, but get no action because most of them are sympathetic to my group. During next week, my mob grows as big as a political majority, and when you call police department, I answer telephone. I tell you that smoking anything is now prohibited, and that youíll go to jail unless you quit.
You can barely hear yourself over chants of self-righteous majority in background. You ask, but how can this be? Last week police protected my rights to smoke and be free from violent moralists. Today youíre policing me on their behalf. Isnít it a crime to threaten violence to change my nonviolent behavior or to forcefully take my property? How did you convert my smoking to a crime and elevate your crimes to my solution?
Because I can, I answer. Iím political majority. I have enough voters, enforcers, experts, and judges to say that wrong is right. My use of violence to fight your smoking is moral because enough people say it is. If only enough sinners threw stones, stone throwing would also be right.
On a recent television show, Dr. Phil explained group dynamics to a twelve-year-old girl who was being harassed by some neighborhood girls. He said that bullies are cowards who get their strength only in numbers. He said that some people get courage to do things in groups that they would never do alone.
