I found this today on Fox News. Quite interesting as it comes from a group that represents one of the most persecuted races in all of history.
Jewish Groups Say Ariz. Law Not Nazi
Arizona's tough new law against illegal immigration has prompted furious protests and boycotts but Jewish groups say opponents who compare it with the rise of Nazi Germany are going too far.
"It diminishes the Holocaust," said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Wiesenthal Center, an internationally known Holocaust studies center based in Los Angeles.
"Survivors and others are very upset about this," he said Friday. "When you exaggerate, it's very harmful to them when they know that their mothers and fathers were taken to the gas chambers without any recourse to the law. They lost children."
Along with that we have the idiot better known as the Attorney General voicing his completely asinine opinions on the subject.
Washington Times: Holder hasn't read Arizona law he criticized
By Ballew, on May 14th, 2010 | 10:00 am
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television.
Mr. Holder is conducting a review of the law, at President Obama’s request, to see if the federal government should challenge it in court. He said he expects he will read the law by the time his staff briefs him on their conclusions.
This is beyond amazing. Holder basically calls the majority of the citizens of the U.S. racists and Anti-Hispanic bigots, openly criticizing a law that he has not read. By his own admission! He say’s he is conducting a review of the law. Between him and the ignorant racist in the White House, all he has done is open him self up to the criticism he so richly deserves! The fact that the Senate ignored everything about this Anti-American legal beagle and confirmed this un-qualified idiot speaks loads to the complete lack of integrity in the halls of Congress. Besides that, he flat out refuses to address Radical Muslim terrorists as such. In every way, this man shows an ignorance that is disgusting in scope and nature. But we shouldn’t be shocked buy this. The President has made sure to stack his cabinet with Anti-American, Anti-rule of the law folks.
The complete blindness to the immigration problem is bad enough as evidenced by the Attorney General’s statements. As I have said before,the fact that this (and past) administrations are willing to put political expediency before the safety of our citizens is treason! So, it should be even less surprising that our boy Weird Wille should weigh in on the subject with one of the most inane comments I have seen yet!
Bill Clinton: More Immigrants Will Reduce Deficit
The U.S. needs more immigrants and a value-added tax to help reduce the deficit, former President Bill Clinton said Friday.
Clinton said the country was "mortgaging out a lot of our sovereignty" by using foreign creditors to pay for an "exploding" debt.
His recipe? More growth and revenue, fueled by immigrant workers and a controversial value-added tax.
I think we're going to have to have more taxpayers, which is why I favor, in a disciplined way, immigration reform and letting more immigrants come to the country," Clinton told CNBC. "I think it would make more jobs for people who are unemployed, not fewer.
"Second, Clinton said, more tax revenue could be collected by imposing a value-added tax, which taxes products at each stage of the manufacturing or distribution process.
"I think they ought to look at a progressive value-added tax, just because — and I think it's important the American people understand this — most of our competitors have tax systems like this," Clinton said.
Moron Alert! There’s millions of these people here Bill, 14 million or more ILLEGALLY! And you have the utter gall to not only invite more in but to also advocate the VAT!? First and foremost! No one is allowed in this country ILLEGALLY! No One! Take your stance on more immigrant workers to add to the tax rolls and blow it out your ass! How about the true figure of 14% unemployed American Citizens? Don’t you give one damn about them Bill?
I have always felt the Bill Clinton was an out of touch idiot at best but sincere in his convictions. But for a so-called Rhodes Scholar to come up with the crazy statement above as to the VAT is completely out of my grasp. “Most of our competitors have tax systems like this”? So we should destroy what’s left of our economic system because “everyone else does it”? Just what the hell are you drinking Weird Willie? I really want to know as whatever it is leads to severe delusions and apparently idiocy. Are you so much of an imbecile that it hasn’t occurred to you that our competitors, as you call them, are on the edge of or already bankrupt and the American taxpayer is helping to bail out these countries and their failed policies? Take your Anti-American, Anti-Capitalist ideas and shove them Bill. I’ll be damned if I want to go the way of Greece and the other Marxist Socialist failed countries!
Finally, there’s this.

IMF: U.S. debt nearing 100 percent of GDP
By Eric Zimmermann - 05/15/10 05:09 PM ET
The U.S. national debt will soon reach 100% of GDP, the IMF predicts in a new report.
The following graph shows the sharp rise in U.S. debt starting in around 2006. By 2015, the IMF suggests, debt could reach well over 100% of GDP.
The IMF predicts that the U.S. would need to reduce its structural deficit by the equivalent of 12% of GDP, a much larger portion than any other country analyzed except Japan. Greece, in the midst of a financial crisis, needs to reduce its structural deficit by just 9% of GDP, according to the IMF's analysis.
In previous posts, I have ranted about the un-sustainability of the present course we are taking as to our insane Federal Spending. The above says it all. And yet, the Socialist in Chief along with the Leftist scum in Congress do nothing but advocate more spending and more control over the economy! We are broke people! We can’t entitle everyone to free handouts any more. It’s time for every able American citizen to get off their collective butts, take responsibility for themselves and to force our government to cut back the out of control tax and spend policies as put forward by this Marxist administration.
I and others do not owe anyone in this country anything except the equal right to succeed and our respect. Further more. We sure as hell do not have the responsibility to prop up corrupt, Leftist Socialist countries around the world who’s failed policies have helped lead the financial problems now cropping up. It’s reality check time kids! The policies being put forth by these people are destroying our nation. There isn’t much time left to save what we have. Before you know it, we’ll all be living in collectives and working under five year plans ala the old Soviet Union! This isn’t histrionics. This is fact! Someone has to wake up to the danger we are facing and stop it now!
