From the Spin Cycle: Illegal Immigrants Protest Arizona Law with Boycott
Phoenix AZ, May 30, 2011. Thousands of illegal immigrants are showing their outrage with Arizona's controversial SB-1070 law by boycotting the state and moving elsewhere. One example of those who are punishing the state by leaving is illegal immigrant Manuel Renaldo. As he loaded his stolen car with his family of twelve's belongings, Renaldo told this reporter through an interpreter, "It's a matter of principle, 'homes.' I refuse to be supported by someplace that treats me like a f*---- criminal."
The affects of the exodus are being felt by Arizona retailers who report dwindling beer, spray paint, and ammunition sales. Also hit hard are Arizona hospitals, who have reported a dramatic decline in births and emergency room visits by illegal aliens. "We're ecstatic," said one administrator for Banner Health in Phoenix. "At this rate we may see a profit one day."
The boycott/exodus of Arizona by illegals is expected to grow exponentially if similar laws are adopted by other border states.
In related news, DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz thinks that illegal immigration isn't a crime. Or at least it shouldn't be. This really makes you wonder why the Democrats didn't repeal our immigration laws when they had the chance during President Obama's first two years in office.
What sort of sick game are they playing? They pass laws, then refuse to enforce them, even saying the crime they created by statute really isn't a crime at all. See for yourself .......
EXCLUSIVE: Gary Sinise Building Houses for Amputee U.S. Troops, Talks 2012 Election Hopes - FoxNews.com
“CSI: NY” star Gary Sinise was pleasantly surprised that the CBS series was just renewed for its eighth season. But something even more important to Sinise than his is the work he does for the country’s armed servicemen and women.
“I’m always involved, trying to do what I can. I have a foundation that provides military support and helps the families, we have a lot of wounded soldiers and marines,” Sinise told FOX411’s Pop Tarts at the National Italian American Foundation’s (NIAF) West Coast Gala. “Next week I’m playing a with my band to raise money for a guy who got blown up and lost both his arms and both his legs."
Unfortunately, this isn't the only quadruple amputee Sinise is trying to help.
"We have more than one quadruple amputee who has been injured in that way, so we have three of them that we’re raising money for right now, and we’re building them houses," he said. "One house is just about done in Staten Island for the first guy that survived that injury, and now we’re raising money to build houses for the next two guys.”
“I go out and visit the troops and they always call me Lieutenant Dan,” he said. “I figure that is just part of being in a successful movie, so I just embrace it.”
“We’ll have to see where we’re at in 2012, but the economy and jobs are big things, and that is going to have an impact on the current president in the election," Sinise said. "If the economy keeps going down, we’re going to have big problems.”
“Something has to give. We can’t sustain the spending and the entitlement programs, we are going to have to find away to shift these numbers," he added. It is kind of scary, you look and wonder where the 21st century going – how is the power going to shift in the world? What is going to be the catalyst for this shift?"
Political quandaries aside, Sinise was all smiles throughout the star-studded, black-tie NIAF gala where he was joined by the likes of Jon Favreau, Kara Dioguardi, Giuliana DePandi-Rancic, Dodgers great Tommy Lasorda and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who paid tribute to the late Joseph R. Cerrell, a legendary Los Angeles public affairs consultant, former NIAF vice chairman, and a familiar FOX News face.
“God bless Joe and his family. Somehow I thought I’d see him here tonight, his spirit was always just so big,” Pelosi said, before presenting his family with an award on Cerrell’s honor. “Joe was one of the strongest bridges between the U.S and Italy. Thank you NIAF for all that you do, and for honoring Joseph Cerrell.”

In a landslide vote against a strong Obama White House request to raise the debt ceiling by over two trillion dollars without initiating deep spending cuts in government spending, House Democrats join with Boehner-led Republicans in rebuking President Obama’s desire for ever more irresponsible deficit spending.
A word to President Barack Obama – you know you are totally out of step with a mainstream issue when even the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer are telling you no way no how on another vast increase in deficit spending. In fact, 87 House Democrats came out against the Obama request to raise the debt ceiling. Had this been a Republican president so soundly slapped down by so many within his own party, the mainstream media would be signaling that impeachment was soon to follow. As of yet though, hardly a word from network news organizations, CNN, Fox, or that other “news” network with the multiple chinned misogynist Ed Shlutz. Or is it Schlotz? Schnotch?
87 House Democrats told President Barack Obama “not gonna do it” when it came to raising the debt ceiling. 87! That number represents nearly half of all Democrats in the House of Representatives. Half! Kudos to Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner for forcing the hand of Democrats on the issue – namely, actually making them have to vote on something. Make no mistake, most of these Democrats had no issue with raising the debt ceiling by another 2.4 TRILLION dollars, but with the 2012 elections just around the corner, and with the still fresh memory of Barack Obama having left so many of them politically vulnerable during the 2010 midterms, the instinct for personal political survival has overcome any previous allegiances to the Obama White House.
The final vote was 318-97 against the Obama White House’s desire to add another 2.4 TRILLION to the national debt. This despite dire warnings from several within the Obama administration that America’s financial system could collapse if the debt ceiling was not raised. Despite these warnings, recent polling has indicated voters are strongly opposed to further deficit spending, and equally opposed to President Obama’s overall handling of the economy. This opposition is particularly strong among independent voters, a group essential to President Obama’s re-election hopes in 2012.
And if Barack Obama cannot count on the support from the likes of Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, will even less support be coming from the American public in 2012?
Yes we can…
