Fire Chief Accused Of Driving Drunk

Bob Bradley was a captain in the Rio Vista Fire Department where he received double pay for two years before it was found; his response was he did not realize it. He was to have paid it back, however, I doubt it. He also wrongly red tagged the Rio Vista Portuguese Hall in 2004, stating it had extensive fire hazards along with the building did not have a sprinkler system, even when the code did not require it when it was moved to the present site over 60-years ago. They almost filed a lawsuit against the city and they would have won if the fire chief had not reversed the closing. The City Manager Bruce Pope needs to fire him or when he creates another legal mess for Isleton this will be used against them in any future lawsuit. The need to contact previous supervisors and management officials to find out the facts involving this man. There is much, much more that he has done but I will not bring them up yet.  (Mar 11, 2009 | post #1)

NC State Senator Larry Shaw (D-Fayetteville) new CAIR cha...

Go to the Raleigh News & Observer web and comment. http://www.newsobs erver.com/1565/sto ry/1427236.html?mi _pluck_action=comm ent_submitted& qwxq=153017#Commen ts_Container The Raleigh News & Observer needs to conduct research on exactly what CAIRís reputation happens to be after the Holy Land Foundation case and the FBI severing its ties with CAIR. Why no comment about North Carolina State Senator Larry Shaw (D-Fayetteville) being elected as their chariman? Three United States Senators have written to FBI Director Robert Mueller praising a decision last year to cut off contacts with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and inquiring about other groups linked to a Hamas-support network in the U.S. Republicans Jon Kyl of Arizona, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and New York Democrat Charles Schumer signed the letter Tuesday, which asked Mueller for additional information about the decision. You can read the letter here. http://www.investi gativeproject.org/ documents/misc/242 .pdf The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) broke the news last month that concerns over CAIR's roots in a Hamas-support network prompted FBI leadership to cut off contact with the advocacy group last summer.

illegals stealing your jobs....... ACT NOW

I suggest anyone desiring more knowledge on the cost illegal immigration has to Americanís, especially hard working North Carolina taxpayers, need to Google, The Costs of Illegal Immigration to North Carolinians [http://www.fairus .org/site/News2/19 38790790?page=News Article&id=197 23&security=16 01&news_iv_ctr l=1761 ] In 2007, it was estimated NC 400,000 illegal aliens live here at a conservative estimate of $1.1 billion dollars; however, this is only for the medical, education (K-12), and incarceration costs; all which are drastically low in their estimates. It does not address other costs such as the amount of money that is sent to other countries thus it takes away from our economy. People need to base decisions on facts, not feel good emotions. This is why America is BROKE! What is going to happen when our government cannot send out social security checks? What happens to those who honorably served in the military and receives a retirement check? How about retired civilian workers on retirement? What happens when the government cannot pay states for Medicare and Medicaid? America is broke, think about it. Think what is going to happen when we lose our AAA bond rating and it costs us much, much, more for interest on our loans.  (Mar 1, 2009 | post #25)

Stop Immigration For Our Survival

What irritates me about our useless politicians and government is they are forcing us to pay for illegal immigration. They have done so since 1965 without ever filing a bill to stop it. Why hasnít the federal government provide a financial study on the cost to taxpayers at the federal, state, and local levels? We have had illegal immigration forced on us since Fat Teddy Kennedy started pushing open immigration upon us in 1965. Since 1982, the useless Supreme Court ruled we had to pay for educating illegal alien children in grades K-12. What has this cost? Since 1985, our politicians have forced us to pay for free medical care. What has this cost us? Please take the time to call your politicians and demand the federal government provide a study on the overall cost since 1965 and break it down by federal, state, and local governments. They then need to break it down by category such as education, medical, law enforcement, etc. We are broke and they continue bringing in legal and illegal aliens to take what jobs we still have and then put them on welfare so we pay for that also. Stand up and demand for their accountability!  (Jan 23, 2009 | post #8)

TARRASCO STEEL or better yet, TARRASCO STEAL!

Now what has happened on this? How much an hour did they pay the illegal aliens? Did anyone go to prison? How about the owners? Owner of Tarrasco Steel arrested in ICE probe for hiring illegal alien workers at critical infrastructure construction sites JACKSON, Miss. - The owner of the Tarrasco Steel company made his initial appearance in federal court yesterday following his arrest by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on an indictment from the Northern District of Mississippi, as part of an ongoing investigation into charges that he hired illegal alien workers from Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to work at critical infrastructure construction sites throughout the Gulf Coast region. Jose S. Gonzalez, 32, was arrested without incident Thursday morning at his office in Greenville, Mississippi. Gonzalez was involved as a subcontractor providing steel "re-bar" and installation services to major highway bridge construction projects. On March 29, 2007, ICE agents conducted coordinated worksite enforcement actions at the Greenville-Arkansa s Highway 82 bridge in Greenville Mississippi; the Huey P. Long bridge in New Orleans, Louisiana; the US 90 bridge in Biloxi, Mississippi; the I-40 seismic retro-fit in Memphis, Tennessee, and the LA-1 bridge in Leeville, LA. These structures are part of our nation's critical infrastructure and are closely scrutinized when it comes to security matters. The investigation also revealed that the employees did not have proper welding certifications. During the inquiry, the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General, confirmed that the majority of Tarrasco Steel employees were using unauthorized social security numbers for employment. ICE obtained copies of payroll records for the employees for verification of the employees' status in the United States and to substantiate the allegations of criminal misconduct. Gonzalez allegedly falsified and altered information on the I-9 Employee Eligibility Forms. "There is a serious public safety concern when illegal aliens, who are not authorized to work in the country legally, and who do not possess valid welding certifications, are employed in the construction of bridges in our communities," said Michael A. Holt, special agent-in-charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in New Orleans. "While there is no reason to believe that these individuals had ill intent against our country, they could have, because of their illegal status, been susceptible to blackmail from individuals wanting to hurt Americans. ICE will continue working tirelessly to identify those who are working illegally at our nation's critical infrastructure sites." Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) investigations are generally predicated upon the threat to national security posed by unauthorized workers employed in critical infrastructure-rel ated facilities.http:// www.ice.gov/pi/new s/newsreleases/art icles/070803jackso n.htm  (Jan 12, 2009 | post #1)

Topix: What is happening in Israel will come to America

History is repeating itself with this third jihad. I spent 40-years in the fire service, most of it with the Department of Defense fire protection (Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps). While attending a fire chief conference in 1988, I had the pleasure of meeting an Israeli fire officer. During our discussion on the challenges he faced each day, he told me if I would like to see what challenges we would face in a few years, watch what was happening in his country, the Middle East, Europe and around the world. They had been fighting radical Islamic terrorists for years and he told me the jihad would expand throughout the world, including the United States. He is right. It is time for America to wake up, it has been here for a while now, and we are doing nothing about it. Ask yourself this, why are terrorist going to Iran, Brazil, Venezuela to learn how to speak English and Spanish, including advanced terrorism tactics? They then enter the United States via illegal alien/drug smugglers, visa entry or just get on a plane. Why are there approximately 20- Middle easterners a month changing their surnames to Hispanic ones in the Travis County, Texas courts? Here is some history for those that believe it is Americaís fault there is terrorism around the world. Islam is working on its third jihad. They have been trying to convert the world to Islam since their existence in the 7th century and they will not quit until they have world domination. This has already come to America in the form of a silent Jihad. We can hide our heads in the sand, just as we did right after the Revolutionary War when pirates/terrorists began attacking our merchant ships. They stole the goods and ship while selling our sailors at slave auctions. America finally woke up to their terrorism and fought back. We fought two Barbary Wars, which lasted for thirty-two years and four presidents beginning with George Washington. Become involved and stop it before it happens.
