Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Do they really all look alike [1]? The Washington Post’s Macaca moment.

Aliens who are  not welcome, from Fausta [2]:

If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.

In Mexico!

It seems the if Mexican illegal immigrants respected their own standards, they would all have to leave.   Note the Mexican law does not preclude legal immigration.  It does however preclude all “undocumented” immigration.  Shall the liberal now boycott Mexico?

Your papers please, William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection [3]:

Remember when Democrats fell all over themselves trying to prove that Obamacare would not cover illegal aliens? When Joe Wilson shouted “you lie” about coverage for illegal aliens, Obama and Democratic leaders assured the nation that illegal aliens would be excluded.

Under the final Senate health care bill signed into law (unlike the earlier House version [4]), illegal aliens are screened out. Only persons who can prove they are “a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully present [5] in the United States” get to participate.

In other words, when you try to buy a policy through an exchange, or seek a subsidy, or receive any of the other supposed benefits, you will be told “show me your papers.”

Hypocrisy by the Bay, Thomas Lipson, American Thinker [6]:

As San Francisco prepares to boycott Arizona, the city itself issues identity cards [7], intended to prove residency.

Hypocrisy Dumbo sized version, Mark Levin, video:

Hat tip: Kathy Shaidle, Five Feet of Fury [8].

Five point five million dollars in royalties for a books that Obama did not write and could not write.    Greed thy name is Obama.

Squids to put chicks on pig boats, from CNN [9]:

(CNN) — The first women to serve on U.S. Navy submarines are expected to be on the job by fall of 2011, Navy officials said Thursday, ushering in a policy change to what has been an elite service open only to men since the start of the modern Navy’s submarine program.

[…]

Smaller, fast-attack submarines are considered to be too small to accommodate the necessary infrastructure change in living quarters that is possible on the larger subs, Navy officials explained.

Gentlemen, this is stupid.  Tell me what you taking out of our missile carrying submarines in order to accommodate the chicks and how this will improve the our combat effectiveness?  Now get down and give me twenty.

Florida Senate, did Charlie Crist just endorse Marco Rubio. from Ed Morrissey, Hot Air [10]. video:

As I said about Arlen Specter yesterday, all a politician has to offer is credibility and Crist just shot his.  Say good night Charlie.
