Cobb nixes crackdown on
illegal immigrant hires

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Jaime Sarrio

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/27/2013 2:22:22 PM

A divided Cobb County Commission on Tuesday struck down a controversial proposal that would have imposed new regulations aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from being hired to work on taxpayer projects. The rule would have required most contractors to ask the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to inspect employment records, advise them on hiring practices and issue fines for illegal hires in serious cases.(Snip) Illegal immigration is an especially salient issue in Cobb, which in 2010 made national headlines when illegal immigrants were found to be working on the county’s new courthouse. Leaders have taken a series of steps,

Comments:
Tax dollars stimulate "migrant guest undocumented no-person-is-illegal" workers while American laborers, suffering the effects of the depression, sit idle.

Article also mentions that very few US counties have laws preventing illegal labor on taxpayer-funded projects. Why, it´s as if we want illegal aliens to be here.

How many employers that knowingly hire illegals are arrested ? They are breaking the law too by not paying taxes.

The US economic recovery is “far from complete,” new Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen told lawmakers Tuesday. Testifying in her first congressional appearance since she became the central bank’s first chairwoman, Yellen said Fed policy was likely to closely follow the course set out by her predecessor, Ben Bernanke. “I served on the committee as we formulated our current policy strategy and I strongly support that strategy,” she said.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a group of college students on Tuesday that race and gender relations are worse now than when he was a kid. Speaking at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, Thomas, the second black justice to serve on the court, lamented what he considers a society that is more ´conscious´ of racial differences than it was when he grew up in segregated Georgia in the days before — and during — the civil rights era. The conservative justice who, among other things, has written opinions supporting limits on Affirmative Action, added that

Bay Bridge´s new problem: leaks
San Francisco Chronicle, by Jaxon Van Derbeken    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 2/9/2014 1:28:14 PM     Post Reply
The just-opened eastern span of the Bay Bridge, already beset by questions about flawed welds and cracked steel rods, has a new problem: It leaks. Rainwater is dripping into the steel structure beneath the road deck on the suspension stretch of the span, which is supposed to be watertight, Caltrans said. Outside experts say that could pose a risk of corrosion on a bridge that cost $6.4 billion and is supposed to last well into the 22nd century. "That´s a problem, a big problem," said Lisa Thomas, a metallurgical engineer who studies material failure at a laboratory in Berkeley

Plainfield — Plainfield’s new mayor has shut down a program that aimed to distribute photo ID cards to the city’s immigrant community and had been supported by the previous administration. On the morning of Jan. 31, as dozens of people lined up to get cards at Angels for Action, a Latino social services agency on West Second Street, newly appointed Police Director Carl Riley showed up with a letter from Mayor Adrian Mapp effectively shuttering the program, according to the agency’s president Carmen Salavarrieta.

A fired executive from one of New Jersey’s red-light camera vendors contends in a lawsuit filed in Arizona that the company provided lavish gifts and bribes to government officials in 13 states — including New Jersey — to secure new contracts.

He did not mention specific municipalities from any of the states. Rosenberg noted in the suit that Redflex “bestowed gifts and bribes on ... officials in dozens of municipalities within, but

The Furby, an electronic robotic toy which requires children to talk to and stroke it, as well as feed and put it to sleep, was a major hit when makers Hasbro relaunched the 1990s classic last year.

Paterson – City officials are planning to borrow $1.65 million to pay nine firefighters and eight police officers for unused leave days when they retire. This would represent the fourth consecutive year in which Paterson has borrowed money to pay severance to retiring firefighters and police officers at a total cost of more than $11 million over that time. “The budget can’t support this, so you have to borrow it, which means your children end up paying for it eventually,” said Council Finance Chairman Kenneth Morris. “Paterson needs to do a better job managing these costs,” said Councilman William McKoy.

GWB scandal: Fort Lee mayor

Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, in his most extensive comments yet, said Governor Christie’s aides courted him for over two years with gifts from the Port Authority to his town — like shuttle buses, pothole repair and emergency radios — as well as a personal tours of the 9/11 Memorial in a effort to win his endorsement. But when Sokolich did not volunteer his support, he says he was punished by paralyzing traffic jams on Fort Lee’s streets leading to the George Washington Bridge that were ordered by Christie’s appointees at the Port Authority during portions of five days last September.

Politicians in northern New Jersey have long pushed for a casino at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford. But New Jersey´s senate president says if gambling is ever expanded beyond Atlantic City, the Meadowlands is no sure bet. Steve Sweeney told the Press of Atlantic City the state could opt for casinos in distressed cities like Camden, Newark or Jersey City instead of at a racetrack. He told the newspaper´s editorial board on Thursday that each of those cities could benefit from a casino. For years, the assumption has been that if New Jersey ever expanded gambling beyond Atlantic City,

California Bill Would Require
Antitheft Technology for Cellphones

A smartphone is sleek, compact and valuable, which makes it a perfect target for a thief. Californian lawmakers want to require cellphone companies to fix that problem. In the last year, officials in San Francisco and New York have pressured cellphone companies to adopt a so-called “kill switch” that would render a smartphone unusable after it was stolen, which would make it difficult for a thief to sell the device. On Friday, State Senator Mark Leno of California, a Democrat, is expected to introduce legislation requiring all smartphones and tablets sold in the state to include this kind of feature.

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring. (snip) But Obama and his Democratic Party allies seem to be gleeful about the rise of the loafer class.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a
