Mexico & The Scalp Industry

Between 1835 and the 1880s, the Mexican authorities paid private armies to
hunt Native Americans, paying per kill and using scalps as receipts. The
practice began when the Mexican government could no longer provide adequate
protection to its citizens from the marauding Apaches and Comanches.

Illegal immigrant sentenced to life for triple SF slaying
Full story: KSBW-TV

An illegal immigrant convicted of killing a father and two of his sons in a
gang-related shooting that also drew attention to San Francisco's sanctuary
policy will be spending the rest of his life behind bars.

Edwin Ramos was sentenced Monday to three consecutive life sentences in
prison without possibility of parole for the murders of 48-year-old Tony
Bologna and his two sons, 20-year-old Michael, 20, and 16-year-old Matthew
in the city's Excelsior District in June 2008.

The 25-year-old Ramos offered his condolences to the Bologna family prior to
his sentencing.

Prosecutors said Ramos opened fire on a car carrying Bologna and his three
sons. Andrew Bologna, who was the lone survivor in the drive-by shooting,
testified as the prosecution's star witness.

Ramos was seeking revenge for an earlier shooting of a fellow MS-13 gang
member.

Illegal Immigrant Arrested in Death of Texas Police Officer

Published May 30, 2011

| FoxNews.com

A motorist accused of killing a Houston police officer while driving drunk
is in the country illegally, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

Police say Johoan Rodriguez was drunk when he drove his car into a road
block Sunday morning, striking and killing Officer Kevin Will with the
Houston Police Department.

Rodriguez has since been charged with intoxication manslaughter of a peace
officer, felony evading, and possession of a controlled substance. Police
say he had .3 grams of cocaine in his pocket along with an alcohol level of
.238, according to the station.

At a probable cause court hearing late Sunday night, it was learned that
Rodriguez is in the country illegally. A judge refused to give the suspect
any kind of bond, and his first court date was set for Wednesday.

Crime victims of illegal aliens

Though the U.S. government does not keep statistics on the number of crimes
committed by illegal aliens, it has become painfully apparent that thousands
of Americans are raped, robbed and murdered every year by those who come
here illegally.

A brief description of a few of the victims portrayed in the video follows:

Teen gets 40 years for killing Border Patrol agent

SAN DIEGO (AP)- A 17-year-old Mexican was sentenced to 40 years in prison
Thursday for murdering a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was lured from his
vehicle during an attempted robbery and shot repeatedly in the head.
Defendant Christian Daniel Castro Alvarez, described as a one-time smuggler
of illegal immigrants, sat with his head down throughout the hearing, as the
wife and sisters of 30-year-old Robert Rosas emotionally described how his
execution shattered their lives.

Castro wrote a letter, read in court by the judge, saying he was "extremely
sorry" and wished he could turn back the clock.

The sentencing came as a tough, new law in Arizona thrust illegal
immigration back into the national spotlight. The law requires local and
state law enforcement officers to question people about their immigration
status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally.

Officials: Sen. Menendez Friend Raided in Medicare Fraud Investigation

By RHONDA SCHWARTZ | ABC News – 23 hrs ago

The spokesperson for Menendez also strongly denied allegations by The Daily Caller website that Menendez was involved with underage prostitutes during those trips.

"All of these allegations from a right-wing blog of engaging in prostitution are absolutely false," said the spokesperson. "The Senator has known Dr. Melgen for years and his travel on Melgen's plane on three occasions has been reported and reimbursed as required by the rules."

Brother Against Brother
In hundreds of individual cases the war did pit brother against brother, cousin against cousin, even father against son. This was especially true in border states like Kentucky, where the war divided such famous families as the Clays, Crittendens, and Breckinridges and where seven brothers and brothers-in-law of the wife of the United States President fought for the Confederate States. But it was also true of states like Virginia, where Jeb Stuart's father-in-law commanded Union cavalry, and even of South Carolina, where Thomas F. Drayton became a brigadier general in the Confederate army and fought against his brother Percival, a captain in the Union navy, at the Battle of Port Royal. http://www.jcs-group.com/military/war1861peop...
The American Revolution can be considered in broader terms than just great heroes, political, and military events. There were certain social results of warfare and hostilities - often-overlooked events that profoundly altered colonial society. Powerful forces often affected families as various family members differed over the war. Examples abound.

One of the more famous examples, perhaps, is the story of the famous Philadelphian Benjamin Franklin, and, his son, William. The latter, appointed royal governor of New Jersey through his father's influence, remained loyal to the Crown. His father, on the other hand, even though an envoy to London, grew embittered against the Crown. At war's end, William fled to England, virtually disowned by his Patriot father he apparently still loved. In the process, a father's dreams for his son were shattered.http://www.nps.gov/c owp/historyculture/fractured-f amilies.htm

pot calling the kettle black
This is a phrase that states that the person you are talking to is calling you something that they themselves are (and generally in abundance).

This comes from old times when pots and pans were generally black and kettles were generally metallic and reflective. Therefore the pot sees its black reflection in the kettle and thinks that the kettle is black. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php...
