ILLEGAL ALIENS find that designation offensive and are demanding to be referred to as undocumented workers instead. 
What I find even more offensive is that they are here in the first place.

But why are all these illegals flooding across the US border?
How does one reconcile the fact that we have double digit unemployment among our American workers in the face of this record illegal immigration? 

Oh, the simple answer is that the illegals work cheaply, don't pay taxes, etc. 
Well these illegals are able to not only survive on these so called paltry wages; but are also able to send the bulk of their salaries back to their homelands.  These folks are building our country because LEGAL Americans seem too arrogant and lazy to do it themselves. 
America essentially entices a group of impoverished people to our shores to perform tasks that Americans deem beneath them for wages Americans laugh at and then these same Americans have the audacity to condemn the foreign workers.  Shame on America.

Americans need to get off their sofas, turn off their flat screens and WORK instead of demanding 13 months of extended unemployment benefits after exhausting 99 weeks of similar hand outs.

American kids don't cut the grass anymore; they have personal coaches. 
White boys and black boys don't work construction anymore; the Latinos do that. 
Today, Americans EXPECT to start at the top with all the perks and are not willing to PAY THEIR DUES.  Entitlement has trickled upward and sideways; not just downward.
Too many of the privileged parents are more concerned with lattes and not offending their children's sensitivities than they are with being parents. Too many of the less fortunate parents also fail to make parenting a top priority. 
So it is no surprise that our young work force has the disgraceful work ethic it has.

Supply and demand is the root of illegal immigration just like it is for drugs. 
STOP the demand and the supply will wither all boils down to responsible behavior and consequences.

Harris County DA Pat Lykos' hap hazard stance on the Death Penalty issue will be her death blow when she runs for re-election in 2012.

The Harris County Republican base and the clear majority of true Independents support Capital Punishment.  This is not Dallas County and the fringe bloggers at the Houston Chronicle are not only irrelevant, they are even less significant than the paltry voters in our little court house world.

The earliest US national Gallup poll on Capital Punishment was in 1936. That survey found that 59 %  of Americans supported the death penalty, 38% opposed it and  6% were undecided.  Throughout the Gallup  polling history on the issue, the majority of the general US population has always supported the death penalty.  The most recent Gallup data being 7 October 2010, which showed a greater than 2:1 support for the death penalty, specifically 64% supported,  29% opposed and 6% had no opinion.

The 7 October 2010 US National Gallup Poll also asked:
In your opinion, is the death penalty imposed -- [ROTATED: too often, about the right amount, or not often enough]?
The following results were revealed:
Too often: 18%;  About the right amount: 26%; Not enough: 49%; No opinion: 7%.

Now these are NATIONAL polls. Texas has recently been polled at a whopping 83% support for the death Penalty and Harris County leads the pack in Texas.

The drastic decline in Texas Death Capitals does not reflect the will of Texans; but rather the media's agenda.
If Harris County DA Pat Lykos acquiesces to media demands because of an underlying fear that her complete and total ineptness would otherwise be exposed, she needs to be held accountable.

Lykos cannot afford to continue to bank on smoke and mirrors if she intends to remain at the Harris County DA's Office.
The illusion of accomplishment by simply renaming divisions within the office or promoting tangential social agendas that are not DA functions or attending Republican luncheons won't cut it.  The people are tiring of political corruption, arrogance and incompetence.
Lykos laughingly labels others myopic when they call bullshit on her absurd policies..............ironically it is those very policies which demonstrate her own gross lack of foresight and discernment.
Lykos now has a record as Harris County DA.  It will not stand up to public scrutiny.  Her odd destructive and grandiose "leadership" is becoming more widely noted.
It is one thing to cover up the petty vindictive tirades and inappropriate behavior of a District Judge that ruled decades ago; but quite another to camouflage or mitigate the crazyness of her current role as the Harris County District Attorney.................even for Lykos.

When the sitting County District Attorney does the bidding for that county's media outlets; the citizens are left with the proverbial fox guarding the hen house........Pat Lykos must be working an extra job for Chick-fil-A when she's not scrambling the Harris County eggs!

Ironically, Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos and state District Judge Kevin Fine have a lot in common.
Instead of performing their respective duties in a professional fashion within the course and scope of their actual job descriptions; each has chosen to  pursue re-writing the, "Rules of Law", for political gain and personal recognition.
These arrogant distractions to compensate for personal gross incompetence are disgusting.

Lykos seems worried that her ineptness is contagious.  Why else would she send her ADAs to a bogus hearing in time-out mode?  The implication is that there are no senior ADAs left who know what the heck they are doing?  To place a self imposed gag order on prosecutors at a hearing is demeaning to the office of the District Attorney generally. Lykos has degraded not just ADA Alan Curry, but the very process itself.

Personal agendas instead of the "Rule of Law" is paramount for these two (2) clowns.  Fine doesn't like the Death Penalty and Lykos wants drunk drivers to get one free pass (DIVERT)..........the Constitution, the Texas Legislature and the will of the people be damned.

If Pat Lykos and Kevin Fine can't represent their constituents in a competent lawful manner THEY are the ones who need to "stand down, step down and shut up".

Lykos is quoted as saying, "the constitutionality of the death penalty is well settled law". 
But Lykos has a history of disregarding well settled law; so it begs the question, "does Lykos support the death penalty or not?"
If you judge a book by its cover instead of by the content, Pat Lykos is a death penalty advocate.  However, if one's actions are a better judge of an individual's position; Lykos' lack luster pursuit and defense of the death penalty should give Texans pause.

There are some people in society that are so horribly dangerous and vile that the death penalty is warranted.
Society has a responsibility to protect ALL its members in a reasonable manner; not just the sociopathic most violent segment.
The criminal justice system must always strive to prevent wrongful prosecution; but it can never be expected to come with a warranty.  When an innocent individual is found to have been harmed, every reasonable effort should be made to minimize a future similar occurrence. 

The death penalty, it has been argued, is not an effective deterrent. Further, an eye for an eye revenge mentality is not condoned in many civilized societies.
Philosophical bullshit aside,  whose safety is society really protecting by abolishing the death penalty? 
There is no guarantee that every capital murderer will be a model prisoner. That he will never harm fellow prisoners or prison guards.
There is no guarantee that a capital murderer will NEVER escape from prison either. 

The argument that it is better to release a thousand guilty violent criminals than to to punish a single innocent man does not address what harm those thousand bad guys will render on INNOCENT civilians after their release.

The execution of an innocent man, whether it is sanctioned by the state or by a violent crook, is a travesty.
Dead is dead and the victim killed in a robbery is of no lesser value than an innocent man executed by the state. To require that a capital killer can never get the ultimate punishment for his crime unless we have a video clip of the murder that is accompanied by a confessional narration, reduces our justice system to politically correct insanity.
What if we applied this convoluted logic to the rest of our daily lives?  We wouldn't have cars, planes, guns, whiskey or Whataburgers.........

You don't fix incompetence by throwing the baby out with the clean the tub. 
If Pat Lykos simply stands down because she's too wobbly to stand up--then she ought to get out of the way so a real prosecutor can take charge; AND if Kevin Fine wants to legislate then he ought not put on that black robe.

2012 can't come soon enough........
