Its tough to be undocumented these days. On May 19th Yolo County (think Davis) voted to suspend thier YCHIP health benifits to those that cannot show proof of citizenship (http://www.yolocounty.org/Index.aspx?page=1309). They are following suit with many other counties including Sacremento County. The state of the economy and particularly that of California is forcing these counties to come to terms with either thinning out the services offered to all (and incurring massive debt) or cutting those services to people that probably shouldn't be there to begin with.

I looked online for a “Top Ten List of Things People Say They Will/Would Never Do” and wasn’t very successful. I am pretty sure I have done a number of these “things”… repeatedly. What makes my mind wander down such dark alleyways you may wonder? Probably not, but I will tell you anyway, after all you have read this far. I got up Saturday morning, May 16 at...

Six propositions are part of the 2009-2010 California state budget and tax increase agreement (Propositions 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and 1F). Proposition 1A: State Budget NO This proposition changes the way the California budget process works by increasing the amount of money it contributes into its “rainy day” fund and by limiting how this money can be used. Additionally it extends tax increase in the state by AT LEAST two years. In our troubling economic times...

Why the dislike?
A friend asked me the other day, "Why don't you like Nancy Pelosi?"
That's a fair question, so why not look into the situation and see what's what...maybe I haven't given the lady a fair shake, I mean she did block impeachment proceedings against Bush didn't she... maybe she cannot be all that bad...
In January 2007 she joined with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to condemn Bush's "troop surge plan". But only in words as the surge went ahead and congress didn't act against it.
My earlier blog hinted at Pelosi's 2007 Mideast tour with 6 other lawmakers. She delivered a "message of peace" from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (Israel) to Syrian President Bashar Assad. Apparently the "message" was lost in translation as Olmert's office clarified what he had actually told Pelosi, "...although Israel is interested in peace with Syria, that country continues to be part of the axis of evil and a force that encourages terror in the entire Middle East". The office further commented that "Pelosi took part of the things that were said in the meeting, and used what suited her."
On abortion... I lean more liberal in this regard. I don't support legislation banning all abortions, BUT unlike Pelosi, I support the ban on Partial Birth Abortions as well as using any public funds to support/pay for abortions domestically or abroad.
She is a strong gun control supporter. Although I support current licensing measures, I disagree with Pelosi on the fact that gun manufactures should be held responsible for the misuse of guns.
And now for the biggy.... illegal immigration. This is a deal breaker for me. She supports immigration illegally and voted against the "Secure Fence Act of 2006"
So there ya have it. She isn't a supper crack pot as you would expect from the Bay area but her view's are definetely left leaning, falling squarely into the "the government can save us" camp".

The Good: Live Free or Die Hard I liked the new installment of the Die Hard Franchise. I am, admittedly, a fan of Bruce Willis and the "Wise Cracking Action Hero" genre. The stunts are over the top, but if ya ask me... if you pay 9 or 10 bucks for a movie ticket, things better be blowing up! The story was easy to follow and the actors did a great job keeping the audience interested. Timothy Olyphant plays a terrific villian and Justin "Hi I'm a Mac" Long...

Too heroic for the Britians
It's easier to silence positive stories out of Iraq then I once thought. Blame it on the ratings projections! The BBC announced that a proposed movie about the youngest surviving Vicoria Cross hero will be scrapped because, get this, "[it's] too positive about the conflict" and because it feared it would alienate members of the audience opposed to the war in Iraq. Read the full story here

Anything except the sun can cause global warming... in fact they assert here that the sun "started" the process [on Mars] but it's actually dust that's making it worse.... even tho the temperature increases on Mars are equivalent to the temperature increases on Earth. Why ignore the most probable source?!?! You know that giant nuclear furnace at the heart of our solor system... Why ignore corrilating facts?!?! Whats the probability that Human interaction on Earth produces the same temperature increases on our planet that dust storms are currently doing to mars?? Some collection of pointy headed beard scratchers needs to pull thier heads out....

Looks like human activity on Earth is causing global warming on Mars.... Scientists can be just as bad as religious nuts and political extremists...
Last year there were dire hurricane predictions for our country but wonder how many hit land? Ah.... 0 (that’s a zero).
It’s a good idea to pollute less and consume less energy but scare tactics and blatant lies are not the answer.
