Thoughts on the shooting in Binghamton, New York Immigration Office

April 3, 2009

A gunman opened fire at an immigration services center in Binghamton, New York on Friday, killing as many as 13 people before he was killed.  Preliminary reports do not say whether the gunman took his own life or if police shot the man.

Give us your poor...

Give us your poor...

Immediate response:

1.  Conceal and carry may be the only way to really stop these psychos.

2.  Conceal and carry will NOT stop this from happening more in the future, as the gunmen are already suicidal.

3.  Several anti-immigration newscasters should accept some of the blame for this one.  If Marilyn Manson and Natural Born Killers contributed to Columbine, then Lou Dobbs and others who rail on illegal immigration every damn night should take some responsibility.  It’s not so much that Dobbs, Hannity, and Limbaugh are dangerous themselves, it’s that there are a few people in the United States who are incredibly impressionable.  All of these reports cause them extreme stress and they eventually snap.

I’m not saying this is 100% the case with this shooting, because details are still scarce, but it is within the realm of rational thought at the moment.

Republican candidate to replace Rahmbo hates Mexicans, Muslims, gays, liberals, and self

March 31, 2009

She doesn’t have an icicle’s chance in hell of winning, but the Republican candidate for the 5th district in Illinois wants to ruin her future political career before finishing the race.  After Rahm Emmanuel accepted the position as Chief of Staff to President Obama, Rosanna Pulido won the Republican nomination for the special election to replace him.

And this is when the Internet kicks in and ruins Pulido’s fun.  Posting under the name “chicagolady” on the Free Republic forums, Pulido had some pretty harsh words for Mexicans, gay people, and liberals.  Here are some snip-its:

Like I tell any Liberal, “You can have my gun…..bullets first”

LOL!! YOU ARE SICK!!  Face it, it’s better to be in a meat packing town than a fudge packing town.

A lot of those loans were made by Mexicans preying on Mexicans. Not white Americans preying on Mexicans. What is being exposed here is a diversion created by the Hispanics who want money at any cost and the corruption and culture they are bringing with them. They would sell swamp land in Florida to their own grandmother.  I lived in Mexico for a year as a missionary. I was ripped off the worst by the Bible students. It is so cultural to rip people off they do not see that it is wrong. It’s culture.

In that district, it was always a race to see who could secure the Democratic nomination.  Pulido always had no chance to win the election, but now this stuff will haunt her for the rest of her life.  Of interesting note, is that Pulido is Mexican herself and is also a member of the Illinois Minutemen, a group dedicated to stopping illegal immigration in controversial ways.

I’d hate to be a politician.  Think of all the crazy shit you’ve said in the past that would come back and screw you over later.  Your facebook status, your myspace wall, your blog comments, and your Twitter tweets will follow you forever.  It will be interesting to see how the election process changes in the next 40 years when presidential candidates have to answer for a lot of this kind of material.   The American public may actually have to accept them as human beings that fuck up, instead of ideals in suits.

RWP Rating: Strange.
