Has anyone subscribed to this yet? I can't tell if you get the whole show or just the interviews. If it's the whole show, is it the full four hours, including the 9-10 am hour?

Mel

I guess this is why I can't listen to the show repeated on imusonair anymore? What a drag.

Any news on Imus' health? Was he there today?

Bruce

Someone will find out Alison. If they are doing just the interviews it's not worth it.

Mel

Hope you had a relaxing weekend (I did) because this story will make your blood boil:

http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/employment/2009-03-08-immigrant-jobs_N.htm

Pelosi took out the E-Verify requirement for stimulus jobs.

Mel

You've got to be kidding. Arthur Herman points out this morning that, while Gordon Brown gave Obama an official gift of a pen holder made from a Royal Navy destroyer and a first-edition of Randolph Churchill's and Martin Gilbert's eight-volume biography of the man who saved Western civilization, Obama gave Brown - I am not making this up -25 DVDs. The set includes movies like ET, Star Wars, and The Wizard of Oz. All of which I'm pretty sure Brown has seen already. And which he may already own, in fact. Maybe even on Blu-Ray.

Up next: Obama gives Angela Merkel a Best Buy gift card.

bella

Mel, Can you just feel the love from the world today? Hillary with her big red button stumbling over Russian translation and the Obamas snubbing Brown, you can't make it up.

Mel

BO snubbing our best ally but is reaching out to the Taliban and Cuba now, making nice with all the wrong people! You really can't make it up, can you? Gordon Brown is ultra-liberal and very unpopular in GB because unlike America, they're moving away from socialism and Brown will be gone soon.

Good morning, all. Great posts since I checked out Friday.
Ginger, please allow me to apologize for my bad choice of words directed at you in my last post. The conspiracy theories are just getting to me, I guess. Case in point: my next door neighbor of 35 years spent Friday and Saturday buying $1200 worth of ammunition for his many guns because (I'm not making this up) WHEN, not IF you know who is assassinated, we can expect an uprising of (wait for it) BLACK Terrorists, and he wants to be able to protect himself and his home. This man has a masters degree. I reacted to him in my usual crass manner, which he looks forward to. (Loves to bate me) I then made him a big black O from electrical tape to put above his door so that he and his family will be spared in the event that hell freezes over and pigs fly. In short, I'm on the edge here-I need the therapy myself.
Donald, thanks again for the life line. I wish I could stay in George Carlin's head for a while.
Bruce, thanks for all you do. But seriously, FRED IMUS? Why would he or any other of these entertainers (including Imus) have a better perspective than I do? They have one agenda, keep themselves working. They will say anything to keep the audiences tuning in. They are selling you a bill of goods too. That anyone gives more importance to their opinions than to the professionals doing the job is akin to listening to the rants of a football fan rather than the football coach.
Mel, my job in personnel is to make sure our employees are legal. There are already safeguards from the federal government, but not too much oversight. If illegals are hired, it is because the company is looking the other way. In some cases it is due to not being able to hire Americans for the type of work (manual, hot, dirty, long hours). The E-verify thing will make it easier for the government to be involved, but it is another case of government intervention into private businesses. Ya'll need to make up you minds when and where you want the government regulation.

Does it matter anymore what side of the border Mexican Nationals are on? Mexico is on the list of Governments that could collapse. Will we Bail Out Mexico? Of course we will Bail Out Mexico it is our National Security at stake. Will this help the people at the bottom in either country? NO it will just continue the present Status Quo. More exploitation of cheap Mexican labor. Who benefits not the Poor or Middle Class in America. American Corporations, and Politicians pandering to voting blocks. Meanwhile the Gang Problem is growing in this Country. This is one of the reasons why we filter immigrants in the first place. In Phoenix, Arizona they have seen record kidnappings, and other violent crime, it is Hispanic on Hispanic Crime. That is Arizona Senator John McCain's home state. What are they doing about the Crime Wave? This isn't day labors trying to make a living, these are criminals that prey on the vulnerable. If you let everyone walk across the border how do you weed out the Criminals?

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,504139,00.html

Ree

Phoenix police are aggressively trying to reduce the number of near-daily home invasions and kidnappings, which helped earn the city the title of "kidnap-for-ransom capital" of the U.S.

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2009/02/15/20090215kidnappings0215.html

If I was south of the border, and starving and trying to feed my family, I would try and cross into the U.S. too...the problem is the criminals are crossing into our Country too, and abusing those very same people.

If verifying someones eligibility for employment removed the Lure, and stopped the above examples of crime, then the Government should enact the E Verify Program. The People that are already here should go to their local embassy, and if they don't have criminal records, give them temporary visas. They should also be screened for communicable diseases Hepatitis, TB ect.. and treat them if they need it. It really isn't that difficult there is a purpose why "Sovereign Countrys" Screen Immigrants.

Here is one for El Paso, Texas.

I am thinking about getting a gun myself - anyone have a good suggestion for a middle-of-the-road handgun? 10 shots..nothing wimpy but not too much to handle.

Cramer is finding out what many of us on here find out daily by daring to question the competence of our leaders.

President Obama's team, unlike Bush's team, demonstrates a thinness of skin that shocks me. When I somewhat obviously and empirically judged that the populist Obama administration is exacerbating the crisis with its budget and policies, as evidenced by the incredible decline in the averages since his inauguration, I was met immediately with condescension and ridicule rather than constructive debate or even just benign dismissal. I said to myself, "What the heck? Are they really that blind to the Great Wealth Destruction they are causing with their decisions to demonize the bankers, raise taxes for the wealthy, advocate draconian cap-and-trade policies and upend the health care system? Do they really believe that only the rich own stocks? What do they think we have our retirement accounts in, CDs? Where did they think that the money saved for college went, our mattresses? Do they think the great middle class banks at the First National Bank of Sealy and only the wealthiest traffic in the Standard & Poor's 500?"

Flashback: 2006 Poll Showed Most Democrats Wanted Bush to Fail
An August 2006 poll conducted by FOX News/Opinion Dynamics showed 51 percent of Democrats did not want Bush to succeed.

Mel, I was just reading that article by Jim Cramer. Excellent article, by the way, and it goes to show just how "in the pocket" the media is. They are nothing in the world but the attack machine to keep down any dissent. They are really dangerous in their ruthlessness. They did it to Imus, they did it to Sarah Palin, and countless others who dare to step out of line. Cramer said he would like to have a debate on the issues. Never happen. Take him out is the goal.

Fox is not perfect, but thank goodness for Fox providing just a little bit of pushback.

Ree

Mel,

My father in law lost so much he will never see it recovered in his lifetime, he followed the rules. His investments had just recovered from the dot.com bubble bursting. He doesn't live off of his investments but I don't think that is the case for a lot of retired people.

I was telling my mother in law, when the inflation from all the printed money starts kicking in, the rest of us will get wiped out. A while back there was an article about America being turned into a tenant nation.

http://elainemeinelsupkis.typepad.com/ezmoneymatters/2008/07/turning-the-us.html

Well Obama is proposing highway building and maintenance in the stimulus bill maybe he wasn't them in good shape to sell GRIN.

bella

Of course, Obama had lots of help from his friend, Rezko, in buying his house.

Ree - everyone has been affected one way or another. My kids' futures are in jeopardy - I always believed they would inherit a wealthy country...not so much anymore.

I don't understand half the country wanting to live off welfare so they don't have to work? This should be everyone's worst nightmare. For the life of me, I don't get it.

Mel

Bella - Glenn Beck grows on you slowly, be careful! I sent pictures of my kids for his WE SURROUND YOU Friday, looking forward to watching him.

Ree

Bella, Mel,

I was trying to find the article but the gist goes back to National Security, remember Dubai was going to buy major ports operations. The article was warning if we sell off our private businesses to foreign investors to pay the mounting bills, we will be turned into a Nation of Tenants.

“WASHINGTON — As many as 200 U.S.-trained Mexican security personnel have defected to drug cartels to carry out killings on both sides of the border and as far north as Dallas, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, told Congress on Wednesday.

-snip-

The renegade members of Mexico’s elite counter-narcotics teams trained at Fort Benning, Ga., have switched sides, contributing to a wave of violence that has claimed some 6,000 victims over the past 30 months, including prominent law enforcement leaders, the Houston-area Republican told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “

"In Phoenix, Arizona they have seen record kidnappings, and other violent crime, it is Hispanic on Hispanic Crime. "
===============================================

Ya know... where I am working...right after the elections...some "people" I long suspected of being here "illegally"...all of the sudden were not called back after our two month layoff.

The problems in Mexico are twofold. There are those that would love to stay in Mexico and work, or farm...but come here because of the violence, that is now spilling over into our borders.

Our Government, for many years, has asked the Mexican Government to seriously clamp down and eradicate the "drug lords" in their country, which the recently elected Mexican President has done. The problem? His countries' police forces are being slaughtered by heavy duty assault rifles and weapons coming from (yup, you might have seen THIS one coming) OUR country.

If OUR country can enforce the borders, keep guns from finding their way into Mexico, and the Mexican Government can then close down the out of control drug trade into our country...maybe more Mexican people will stay in their country.

It is, indeed...one nasty mess, and it is escalating.

"Drug violence in Mexico has claimed at least 7,000 lives in little more than a year, most of them along the border and many carried out to maximize their gruesome effect. Mass killings and beheadings have had a terrorizing effect on border towns from Texas to Tijuana."

One more thought on this " Mexican drug war"...

...These " Mexican drug cartels" are now being found having established themselves all the way as far as into Alaska, and even Canada.

Not a pleasant thought.

Ree

DonaldInks,

And they are preying on the people who just want to pick lettuce or work in the service industry, the vulnerable ect...I don't know what it will take till people care - pay attention? The Phoenix Arizona Kidnappings, some are those people being smuggled, being held by the coyotes for more money once they get across the border. They use these houses that act like weigh stations for drugs and human trafficking. It is an ugly business getting worse.


Donald Inks

I watched this program on the very subject (the Mexican Drug Cartels) on C-Span this past Saturday.

Good program.

Thanks for pointing that out. That's what reminded me of the C-Span segment.

Who says half the country wants to live on welfare????????????? I'd say half the country WANTS THEIR F'N JOBS BACK. There's Mel and her holier than thou self again. Queen of the moral mountain. Get over yourself. You said you live where a lot of rich people live. Maybe you're just out of touch with the middle class who've had the financial burden on their backs and are now losing their jobs. There's a crisis in this country in case you haven't noticed!

Bruce, thanks for all you do. But seriously, FRED IMUS? Why would he or any other of these entertainers (including Imus) have a better perspective than I do? They have one agenda, keep themselves working. They will say anything to keep the audiences tuning in. They are selling you a bill of goods too. That anyone gives more importance to their opinions than to the professionals doing the job is akin to listening to the rants of a football fan rather than the football coach.

===================
I don't do anything other then enjoy Imus. Fred Imus is funny. What he says is actually more down to earth then many main stream broadcasters.

No one sells me a bill of goods. Especially the Obamanation fiasco. I read that man from the start and he isn't going to sway my feelings one way or the other. Obama is a Joke.

Imus said it best today. This Stimulus Package is going to fail and then we are going to die. Charles said; Maybe not in that order but correct.

No, No, No.... Imus is not my mainstream news, but he does not give me anything but the truth of how he feels. And usually is spot on.

So Bobbie my presentations are not good enough for you? Well just ignore them.

Don't spend six hours mixing them to give the people that do appreciate them for nothing. It is my way of giving the appreciative another avenue for the sound of the show. When that dries up well I guess I will have to spend money to listen to him.

But not till then.

Pelosi Backs Talk Radio Regulations

Sunday, March 8, 2009 6:27 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is supporting legislation that will force the Federal Communications Commission to “promote diversity” on the airwaves – a move many see as a stealth effort to regulate conservative-dominated talk radio without bringing back the controversial Fairness Doctrine.

http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/pelosi_durbin_amendment/2009/03/08/189685.html?s=al&promo_code=7BCB-1

========================================
I have said this before. Pelosi needs Botox in her tongue and let her face show the face of "DOOM". Because at this rate that is where we will be in 1 year. My opinion

Bruce

6547.05-79.89 / -1.21% Mar 09

Good Job Obama????

You are stimulating our stock market alright. You have destroyed everyone's 401K's and retirement with words of wisdom. The wisdom of a incompetent baboon. (Not racist).

Can't wait till 2012 and get this guy out of office for good. Take your swing set with you too.

bella

I believe we are observing the implementation of a liberal agenda which is going to be our downfall. It would not be so bad if it were not being done when the country is in the pits of an economic, some say, disaster. None of these things that are being done are going to improve the economy. Was it James Carville who said it's the economy stupid. Well, it is the economy, and if it goes bust, no amount of education reform or green energy or stem cell research is going to be possible because there won't a country - at least not the one we are accustomed to. A lot of the spending is hideous waste, and if not waste, things that also can wait for a better economic climate.

So we will see. People who know a lot more than I do are saying it's not working. And Jim Cramer is feeling the brunt on the liberal press and media. He is an Obama supporter, but it didn't take them but a spit second to turn on him. I just heard him give the rant that's in writing below:

http://investorshub.advfn.com/boARDS/read_msg.aspx?message_id=36137632

**split second not spit second. lol

I see that big bubble belly wants to be a bully again.

Hey Bubble Belly Brucie Boy! I am laughing at your miserable life.

Bruce

Take the money we are printing to put out this blaze of the Economic Downfall. What's backing this up?

Nothing!

It's like throwing Gasoline on a fire. Eventually it will become so out of control that nobody will be able to contain it.

Let the "Free Market" work. It does work you know. And just because this happened in the last 8 years is not the fault of President Bush, as some have said. It's the fault of every one of the leaders in the Congress, on both sides of the isle.

I am not a Donald Inks. I am a person who writes what he feels. I am not a Republican who blindly follows someone because he can speak well when reading a teleprompter. I am an independent who have seen great Democrat and Republican Presidents.

I believe the people who are elected by the people, should listen to the people. We pay their salaries. They are working for us not the other way around.

It's like saying all Muslims are bad. Untrue. But all terrorists are Muslim. That is usually true 99 percent of the time.

So not all Democrats are bad. Not all Republicans are bad. But the bad ones cause the most problems.

This President is trying to destroy us.

And Bella the stem cell thing is just another example of how he is using his slight of hand to get our eyes off the ball.

Do you know how many years it would take to develop something that could cure all the diseases or afflictions from Stem Cell research? We will all be gone by that day it helps somebody.

And attacking Rush Limbaugh or Conservative radio is another diversion.

Get with the program Barack. Our economy is in shambles because of two previous Democrat Presidents. Carter and Clinton. Not everyone is worthy or able to afford a real house. Yes we thought that this bubble we were living in would never burst. Well guess what it did and now clueless Obama thinks he can fix everything in 48 days. Not so.

Who won the race between the Turtle and the Hair or Rabbit? Not the fast one on foot or pen signing. Slow but sure did the trick. Oh, the word was Tortoise not Turtle.

Slow down and take a breath and look at the big picture. Or you shall be gone in 2012. And God I hope he is gone one way or the other.

I rest now for the next attack from the liberal posters.

Bruce

Nice try Mr. Period...

I see that big bubble belly wants to be a bully again.
