Mexico’s Constitution and their Harsh Immigration Laws

Posted by FactReal on November 19, 2012

Mexico’s long history of dealing with illegal immigrants in a much harsher manner than the United States. Don’t be fooled by Mexico’s immigration reforms.
Mexico is touting their latest reform to their immigration laws as a way to pressure the U.S. to open its border and pass an amnesty to benefit illegal immigrants living in the U.S. (nearly 60% are from Mexico).

For decades Mexico has been calling our immigration laws unjust and immoral, while their own Mexican immigration laws have been tougher than U.S. law as demonstrated by their 1917 Mexican Constitution which is the one that is still in force today despite the many amendments/reforms.

“U.S.-Mexico Border Safest Area in America,” says U.S. Customs and Border Director

Via CNSNews.com:

The U.S. side of the southwest border is home to “some of the safest communities in America,” Gene Garza, the director of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the Laredo, Texas field office, told lawmakers on Tuesday. […]

However, the U.S. Attorneys’ Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal Year 2011 paints a different picture, showing that 80 percent of all cases filed against criminal defendants in U.S. Magistrate Courts were filed in districts along the U.S.-Mexican border. […]

There were 71,387 cases filed in U.S. Magistrate Courts against criminal defendants between Oct. 1, 2010 and Sept. 20, 2011 (FY 2011), according to the Attorneys’ latest statistical report. Among those cases, 57,310 (80 percent) occurred along the southwest border.

Despite the U.S. Attorneys’ data, DHS Secretary Napolitano echoed Garza’s claims that the border communities are among the safest in the country, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 25: “Violent crime in U.S. border communities has also remained flat or fallen over the past decade, and statistics have shown that some of the safest communities in America are along the border.”

Do you feel any safer now?

Nutella to Pay $3 Million to Stupid Parents Who Failed to Read Food Label

Posted by FactReal on May 2, 2012

Nutella Settles lawsuit for $3 Million with Stupid Parents who Ignored Nutella is high-caloric
Heritage reports:

But ignorance is bliss — very bliss — and in the case of Uninformed Moms vs. Nutella, it was worth $3.5 million in a class action lawsuit settlement.

This latest example of the U.S. legal system run wild comes to us from California where two mothers filed suit against Ferrero USA, Inc., the maker of Nutella — a spreadable, chocolate-flavored hazelnut product. ABC News reports that one of the plaintiffs — Athena Hohenberg of San Diego — sued the company because she was confused into thinking that Nutella is a health food, and she was “was shocked to learn” that Nutella “was the next best thing to a candy bar.” […]

Now, the company is settling for $3.5 million — or anywhere from $4 to $20 per person in the class.

The thing is, if you take a look at a jar of Nutella, you’ll quickly see for yourself that the product isn’t that healthy. According to the government-mandated nutrition label, two tablespoons contain 200 calories, 11 grams of fat (3.5 grams saturated), and 21 grams of sugar. It doesn’t take a nutritionist to realize that isn’t healthy. […]

Unfortunately, when companies are hit with frivolous lawsuits and they have to pay out, the money comes from their bottom line. That means less money for innovation, investing and expanding — and that means fewer jobs.

Forbes correctly points out:

Many healthy eating advocates see the outcome of this lawsuit as a turning point in the battle against nutritionally defunct fare. As for me, I see this simply as the sad, unfortunate endorsement of the fact that Americans have really become incapable of making sound, and reasonable judgements about our own sustenance.

OBAMA-ERA FOOD POLICE: Then they came for McDonald’s Happy Meals

Posted by FactReal on November 8, 2010

So, the crazies from the Left continue their war on individual freedom!! They are pretending to care about our health, but we know it’s all about power and control.

Last week, San Francisco banned Happy Meals: “San Francisco’s board of supervisors has voted, by a veto-proof margin, to ban most of McDonald’s Happy Meals as they are now served in the restaurants…The measure will make San Francisco the first major city in the country to forbid restaurants from offering a free toy with meals that contain more than set levels of calories, sugar and fat.” Of course, the Left will decide what the proper levels are. “The ordinance would also require restaurants to provide fruits and vegetables with all meals for children that come with toys.”

Degenerates want to tell you what to eat while they continue with their self-gratification: In San Francisco, “if you want to roller skate naked down Castro Street wearing a phallic-symbol hat and snorting an eight-ball off a transgender hooker’s chest while underage kids run behind you handing out free heroin needles, condoms and coupons to the grand opening of the neighborhood’s newest bathhouse, that’s your right as a free citizen of the United States.”

Leftists’ World Naked Bike Ride (San Francisco, 6/10/2006)
Via American Thinker:

San Francisco, that bastion of liberal orthodoxy, has, through their Board of Supervisors, passed a law that tells parents what they can and can’t feed their children. Most of us have heard of McDonald’s Happy Meals, which offer toys to children with their food order. Of course, parents are the ones ordering for their kids and paying the check. Hence, one would think the decision about what their children eat is their business, not the business of a bunch of nosy control freaks. With McDonald’s being hovered over by sentinels in the city by the bay, eyeing every morsel they sell, how long before we’re being watched in our kitchens as we reach for the salt shaker or the ketchup bottle?

Michelle Obama Diktat to Restaurants (9/13/2010):
Cut the butter & cream.
Hide the French fries.
Make carrots the default choice!
Substitute wheat pasta for white pasta.
Obamas’ Hypocrisy
Liberals misusing the law to control Americans:

They’re not satisfied with controlling their own eating habits; they want to control yours, too. According to the recently enacted passage in the San Francisco Health Code:

A restaurant may combine a free toy or incentive item with the purchase of a meal if the meal does not include any of the following as defined in the ordinance: excessive calories, excessive sodium, excessive fat (excessive will be determined by the little dictators who sit on the board), including saturated fat, and trans fat exceeding 0.5 grams. A meal must also contain at least 0.5 cups or more of fruits or vegetables. Breakfast items must contain 0.5 cups of fruits or vegetables. A Restaurant may provide a free toy or Incentive Item in combination with the purchase of a single food item or beverage if the food or beverage includes less than 35% of total calories from fat and less than 10% of calories from added caloric sweeteners. The Department of Public Health shall enforce the ordinance and the Director of the Health Department may issue administrative citations for the violations of the ordinance under San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 100.

Leftists want all people to conform to their autocratic rule:

[Leftists] plot ways to control every act, thought, and pattern of behavior in their community. Then they get themselves elected to boards in order to use the parliamentary power of their positions to force their view of social conformity on people who once thought they had the freedom to choose their own destiny.

Democrat Jerry Brown Camp Calls GOP Meg Whitman “Whore” (audio)

Posted by FactReal on October 8, 2010

Real Clear Politics reports:

“According to the LA Times, Brown left a voicemail message for Scott Rate, a union official. Brown apparently believed he had hung up the phone, but the connection remained intact and the voice mail machine captured an ensuing conversation between Brown and his aides.

A second male voice can be heard saying, of the deal-making, ‘What about saying she’s a whore?’

Brown replies: ‘Well, I’m going to use that. It proves you’ve cut a secret deal to protect the pensions.'”

Whitman’s Social Security letter warned her not to fire the housekeeper:
Read the SSA letter here….it doesn’t say what the media is telling you.

Contrary to what Gloria Allred is claiming, the SSA letter dated 4/22/2003 clearly:

1) Makes “no statement about your employee’s immigration status.”

2) Warns Whitman not to fire the housekeeper because of the letter:
The SSA makes it clear that their letter is not a basis for Whitman “to take any adverse action against the employee, such as laying off, suspending, firing, or discriminating against the individual. Any employer that uses the information in this letter to justify taking adverse action against an employee may violate state or federal law and be subject to legal consequences.” It has been reported that Whitman fired the housekeeper in 2009 when they became aware that she was an illegal alien.*

3) Explains to Whitman the maid doesn’t have to show her the SSN card:
On the second page, the SSA explains, “While the employee must furnish the SSN to you, the employee is not required to show you the Social Security card.”
