The U.S. Government's Employment Verification Website Is Down !!

The E-Verify website is closed because of the Federal government shutdown.  

Employers in the U.S. are forced to use this system when hiring, mostly to ensure that people are "legal". 

Why does it matter so much where someone's Mom was located when her water broke? The older I get, the more I see this vile website as an instrument of racism. Or am I mistaken in not believing that the lines of latitude and longitude beneath a uterus should define a person for life?  

(And check out these politically correct contortions from the site: "This diverse workforce contributes greatly to the vibrancy and strength of our economy, but that same strength also attracts unauthorized employment.") 

Any bureaucratic drone who is proud of stopping "unauthorized employment" should be laid off permanently. And then sent to Iraq or Afghanistan, to live out the rest of his life as an "unauthorized" non-person in one of the countries that his co-workers have screwed up. 

End of rant.

Butt Prints In The Sand

One night I had a wondrous dream,
 Footprints beside a sandy stream,
Those steps left there by God's own son,
 I looked for mine, but I saw none.
But then some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord, “What have we here?
Those prints are large and round and neat,
But Lord, they are too big for feet.”
“My child,” He said in somber tones,
“For miles I carried you alone.
 In spite of all your "Freedom" talk,
 You still refused to stand and walk."
“You wouldn't work, you wouldn't vote,
 You didn't want to rock the boat,
 And so I thought it time to cut
 Our ties and drop you on your butt."
“Because in life, there comes a time,
When one must fight, and one must climb,
When one must rise and take a stand,
Or leave their butt prints in the sand.”
If you're interested in getting off your rear end, brushing off the sand, and working for less government, more freedom, and a better life for yourself, your children and your neighbors, go here to check out the Tarrant County Libertarian Meetup.

Threatening me with a government shutdown is like.....

Non-Essential Government Workers Of The World, UNITE

Non-Essential Government Workers Of The World, UNITE!!  For without you, nothing wouldn't get done.  Or something. 

Looks like Dan McCall over at Liberty Maniacs has been busy.  He always draws the best stuff. 

But to expand on his point.... Can someone explain why we have ANY non-essential government programs or employees when we are 17 trillion dollars in debt?

Eric Holthaus vows to stop flying, have no more children, all because of the weather.

I hearby nominate meteorologist Eric Holthaus for a Darwin Award.
 (The Darwin Awards are given to those who remove themselves from the gene pool, sometimes via accidental death by dumbness, thereby ensuring survival of the fittest.) 

Weatherman Eric Holthaus has taken a look at the U.N.'s Climate Change report and vowed to stop flying. 
Actually, that's not the way our friends on the Left speak. 

"I'm committing right now to stop flying."  he Tweeted.  "It's not worth the (harm to the) climate."  

These guys don't vow or promise to do anything.  They're like a trendy restaurant, and are "committed to a smoke-free environment".  Or "committed to ensuring diversity".  They're not promising.  They're just committed to the idea.   

He's also going to get a vasectomy so that no more offspring of his will warm the planet.  This, of course, has prompted numerous wags to suggest that the entire liberal tribe (in the American sense of the word) go therefore and do likewise.

I did my part by going to Mr. Holthaus's Facebook page and wagering that he can't stick to his no-fly resolution for five years.  (He's a Wall Street Journal weatherman who flies to conferences and meetings and seminars and crap.  He'll no more stay grounded than Al Gore.)  

As far as the vasectomy goes, that's no one's business but his.  The gene pool does have a way of policing itself, right?  Seriously.  Eric knows how accurate TOMORROW'S weather report is.  He's going to end his branch of the family tree because of something printed by the freakin' United Nations???  A Darwin Award is in order.
