Legalizing Illegals Would Cost $6.3 Trillion

Legalizing Illegals Would Cost $6.3 Trillion — The Heritage Foundation released a study, May 6, saying that granting legal status to those who are residing in this country illegally would cost the nation $6.3 trillion.

Defenders of the most recent amnesty bill before Congress are outraged at the claim.

“This study is designed to try to scare conservative Republicans into
thinking the cost here is going to be so gigantic you can’t possibly be
for it,” said Haley Barbour, the former Mississippi governor and RNC chairman who is supporting the plan.

One suspects that The Heritage Foundation numbers better reflect the reality than Mr. Barbour.

One further suspects that those who run this country regardless of party are royalty-wannabees at heart and would dearly love for the rest of us to be entirely dependent on them them for jobs, education and protection.

Maybe even  food, heat and electricity.

Swamping the existing safety net and destroying the dollar would go far in destroying the institutions that are meant to preserve our freedom.

With that said amnesty is not a bad word and should be part of the solution. If giving amnesty to one magic illegal solved the problem would you do it? Sure and that would apply to a dozen, or 100 or 1,000, or 10,000 or maybe even a million.

But giving amnesty to all by right is a very, very bad idea considering the number who come here to milk the system or involve themselves in crime.

And amnesty must not even be hinted at as the first step in addressing this matter. The first step must be to get government involved in the enforcement of immigration law. Golly, what a radical idea. This means that the federal law enforcement agencies must not merely allow — which they notably do not  — local ones to question the immigration status of those who they stop for crimes, but actually encourage them to do so.

More importantly, this means that all government bureaucracies — whether a local school district, or a state department of motor vehicles or a federal social services office — demand the residency status of those who seek to use them with the understanding that they will report them if they are found here illegally.

Ever wonder why the self-appointed princes and princesses  in Harrisburg and Washington want to put the burden on enforcing the law on the owners of pizza shops seeking help but shout  down all who suggest that it is maybe the government’s job? Just one of those things that make you go hmmm. Or should anyway.

Pennsylvania Pushed For FAA Site

Pennsylvania Pushed For FAA Site — Sen Pat Toomey says that he visited Tobyhanna Army Depot in Monroe County last week to tour the impressive facility and to urge the Federal Aviation Administration to give Pennsylvania equal consideration with New York for construction of a new air traffic control facility.

Numerous properties in Eastern Pennsylvania such as Tobyhanna fit the criteria outlined by the FAA, he said. They are located in areas with considerably lower costs of living and an existing security presence which may provide an opportunity for significant cost savings. Moreover, many of these sites are also closer to New York City than Albany, where the agency is considering locating the new facility.

Beaver Valley Conservancy, Save It

By 
Michele Daviduk

The Beaver Valley Conservancy is a group of people who have joined forces to help preserve 324 acres of beautiful open spaces.

The property belongs to Woodlawn Trustees in Wilmington, Del., but is under agreement with 3 developers for town homes, 55+ community, single family homes and a commercial aspect with a 180,000 square foot big box store.

The property is between Beaver Valley Road and Rte 202 South in Concord Township, Pa. The property has been used as a wildlife refuge for over 50 years. This property has been used for many generations for mountain biking, dog walking, hiking, horseback riding and enjoying nature. It supports many wildlife species including fox, deer, raccoons, turtles, hawks, owls and bald eagles.
The Concervancy’s mission is “To protect and preserve the natural beauty, wildlife and open space in Beaver Valley for the enjoyment of people in Concord Township and surrounding communities now and for generations to come. To educate the public on development plans through publications, online communications and word of mouth.”
Concord Township supervisors are holding a public meeting scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 14.

We would like the residents to be made aware of this meeting so that they may voice an opinion regarding the rezoning necessary for this developing to occur. There was a preliminary meeting held Oct. 2, 2012 that was continued until this May 14 date.

Many Garnet Valley resident have no idea of this pending change. The goal is to NOT allow rezoning.
It would be a bonus if we could have this property as an extension of Delaware’s National Monument since the property is adjacent to the Delaware parcel recently granted this status. Concord Township is losing precious open space at horrible speeds.  We believe the residents would prefer keeping the open spaces.  But they need to be made aware of it.
We have a FB page: BeaverValleyConservancy; website: www.BeaverValleyConservancy.org and a group linked from us: SavetheValley.org.

What a crime to destroy this beauty!

Classic English Lesson — Off The Internet

Classic English Lesson Courtesy of Cathy Craddock

This is the best, most interesting English lesson I have had to date.

Did you know “listen” and “silent” use the same letters?

Do you know that the words “race car” spelled backwards still spells “race car”?

And that “eat” is the only word that if you take the first letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense “ate”?

And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in “illegal immigrants,” and add just a few more letters, it spells: “Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, non-English-speaking jackasses and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-loving, raggedy-ass bastards with you.”

How weird is that?
