WASHINGTON Anti-war and human rights activists plan an unusual take on the Easter egg hunt by holding an Easter cluster-bomb hunt on Monday.
Fake cluster bombs made by children will be scattered around Lafayette Park, north of the White House. Hundreds of people will attend the White House Easter Egg Roll while activists hold their alternative cluster-bomb hunt on the other side of the executive mansion.
Brian Hennessey, a spokesman for the Vineeta Foundation, a group sponsor, said the event aims to be humorous and fun for kids. Organizers also want to bring attention that cluster bombs cause death and destruction, Hennessey said. Sick
A cluster bomb releases several hundred smaller bombs that might explode or linger on the ground as land mines, which are often found and picked up by children. Vineeta Foundation is chaired by Radia Daoussi, a Fulbright Scholar and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Scholar trained at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
How about an uncensored display for the kiddies to show them what a car bomb does to real mommies and kiddies at a market place in Baghdad? How about showing them real hiding places for daddies and mommies and kiddies who are afraid of the AQ trolls who come in the night and really cut off heads?
The USAF has a problem that cluster bombs would do a good job solving. But they understand that there are some people out there who don't like the idea of cluster bombs. So rather than drop any cluster bombs, they have decided to take volunteers from the ranks upon ranks of these hypocritical clueless armchair-general whiners to save humanity by going in on foot and do the job of these bomblets using a "Please Be Nice" sign rather than use actual cluster bombs.
Do we have any takers?
OK, let's take it down a notch or two: Maybe some of the hypocritical clueless ivory-tower armchair-general whiners could go over and teach the kids to leave these things alone, or at least to also teach the kids' loving parents how to get their kids to leave these things alone? And not to cause such trouble in the first place that it necessitates these the use of these things, unlike their parents.
The population of illegal aliens already in the United States has been estimated at 12-20 million, with a crowd of another two million arriving each year, including thousands through the lengthy and largely remote border Pima County, Ariz., shares with Mexico. That's where I live, BTW.
One activist says the reason is the power structure in the county actually endorses such immigration – because the workers provide a source of low-cost labor for the region's booming construction industry, and what's good for business is what's good for everyone. But Roy Warden objects to the premise, believing the illegals are exploited in Mexico before they leave, they are blackmailed on their way into the U.S., and they are exploited after they arrive.
most leftists and democrats want to import "votes" (illegals). Republican and business leaders are also guilty of wanting illegal cheap labor. In my mind they offer equal damage to the Nation and should be punished accordingly. Let them live in Mexico as Mexican nationals, and pitch their shit among the natives

China. Mexico. Which is the more progressive in developing their economy and improving the lot of their people? Who'd thought commies would be better than family oligarchies?
Yeah, I'd like to see this happen. Firs they have to catch 65K of these critters. I wonder how many fingers are going to be bitten off in that little exercise.
Then they have to perform surgery on them? Or is surgery a bit too delicate a term? Regardless, this is going to cost a heap and and take a long, long time. I wonder if the monkeys will breed faster than the vets can sterilize them. Must be muzzie monkeys.
Never heard of them, but they're saying the monkeys are "Destroying Crops" so that puts them squarely in the "Vermin" category, (Along with Raccoons, Possums, Deer and Rabbits) and vermin Death is appropriate over human starvation.

For the first time, Seattle Public Schools are sending students from four high schools to attend the annual White Privilege Conference, sponsored by the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, the University of Denver, Teaching Tolerance, Study Circles Resource Center, The Matrix, Center for Judaic Studies, GLSEN, and many more organizations. Speakers include Geneva Gay, Peggy McIntosh, Joy Leary, John-Paul Chaisson-Cardenas and many others who are actively engaged in anti-racism.
This year's conference takes place in Colorado Springs from April 18th through the 21st. There are workshops designed specifically for youth, as well as sessions open to all conference participants. We are very excited about this opportunity for students and teachers to grow and learn together at an intense 3-day conference. In support of increasing student voice related to school reform and equity, funding for students to attend the WPC is provided through the small learning communities grant.
From their website:
" The annual White Privilege Conference (WPC) serves as a yearly opportunity to examine and explore difficult issues related to white privilege, white supremacy and oppression. WPC provides a forum for critical discussions about diversity, multicultural education and leadership, social justice, race/racism, sexual orientation, gender relations, religion and other systems of privilege/oppression. WPC is recognized as a challenging, empowering and educational experience. The workshops, keynotes and institutes not only inform participants, but engage and challenge them, while providing practical tips and strategies for combating inequality.
"The conference participants and presenters include corporate and non-profit community members, students, educators, activists, musicians and artists. This conference is not about beating up on white folks. This conference is about critically examining the society in which we live and working to dismantle systems of power, prejudice, privilege and oppression."
Because as we all know, the minute the white guy leaves the room, the Latinos, blacks, Asians and the trannies all get along wonderfully! (As long as they can rag on the Native American or whoever else didn't make it to the luncheon, that is.....otherwise, they're at each other's throats. But it's still the white guy's fault. Somehow.)
this shit is why I had to take Diversity Training twice - I spoke my mind

I just read through the list of people "presenting" at this conference. This is a classic list of life's academic losers. Having been in academia, I'd venture to say that not one of the people listed there has ever made $70K per year. Most of them would be damned lucky to have made 30K.
The bios are the usual melange of nonspecific garbage with "life experience" high on the list. Most of them in their presentations will want to blame their life failure on how "whitey kept me down." The whites attending, if not queer, are simply gravytrainers sucking off the "victim studies" funding stream.
If some sharp white kids go to this, it will probably be good for them. They'll get to see up close and personal what wankers these people are and just how racist they are themselves against whites. We need people to wake up and stuff like this often acts in ways the organizers would certainly find extremely counterproductive.

Reg: All right, but apart from modern chemistry, modern engineering, aviation, telecommunications, modern medicine, a international currency system not locked to gold permitting expanding trade and capitalism rising more people from poverty than any other time in history, suppressing the institution of slavery, creating the green revolution to break the historic cycles of famine, extending life expectancy of whole populations to their longest in recorded history, giving average people access to materials that previously were only obtainable by the very few and powerful what has the culture of white privilege ever done for us?
Attendee: Brought peace?
Reg: Oh, peace - shut up!
Reg: There is not one of us who would not gladly suffer death to rid this country of whitey influence once and for all.
Dissenter: Uh, well, one.
Reg: Oh, yeah, yeah, there's one. But otherwise, we're solid.

My local news channel ran a segment last night about how our tax dollars are at work funding social welfare programs that assist these poor underpriveldged, drunken, unlicensed, illegal killers survive a perilous desert crossing to seek a better life here in the USA.
Looks like there was yet another incident here. Two teenage girls this time. Apparently O'Reilly and Geraldo nearly come to blows over the issue in this video. It takes me too long to load videos, so I haven't seen this one.
From what I recall of the article this illegal alien was driving a nice full featured GMC Yukon. Where'd he get all the money to buy such an expensive vehicle if he did not have a driver's license or insurance?
First, I'd like to kick Geraldo Rivera in the balls. He doesn't want to admit the problem exists and that was evident in his trying to shout O'Reilly down. Typical lib behavior. Second, O'Reilly was perfectly correct: if the law had been enforced this worthless piece of fecal matter would have been back in his garbage dump country rather than driving drunk up here and killing people.
