It's Not My Fault!

You know, Chairman Suhayda isn't the only one who's sick and tired of hearing that.

Perhaps it's our age group.  I'm only about eight years younger than the chairman.  When I was growing up we were taught a little thing that is sadly neglected these days:  RESPONSIBILITY.  

The Oxford American Dictionary defines responsibility as:  a. being responsible.  b. an obligation.  c. accountability, blame, guilt.

What do we hear from people today?  

"It wasn't MY fault I got fired.  They wanted me to work too hard."  In other words they wanted you to do something to earn your pay and you didn't want to do it.  

"It wasn't MY fault she got pregnant.  She should have used birth control."  It takes two to tango.  Why didn't you use a condom - or at least ask her if she was on the pill?  

"It's not MY fault I'm out of work. No one will give me a job!"  Hey buddy, no one is supposed to GIVE you a job.  YOU have to go out and get one yourself.  I know decent jobs are scarce and getting scarcer, but did you even look?  Or did you spend the day sitting on the couch watching the idiot box hoping some friend would call and say they know where you can get a job?     

"It's not MY fault the country is in the sad shape it is, it's...well I don't know who's fault it is but it isn't mine!" It's ALL our faults.  WE let things get this bad.  WE didn't stand up for ourselves when it would have been easier to do so.  No.  WE buried our heads in the sand.  WE spent our time watching sweaty Negroes banging into each other while chasing a funny shaped ball around a field like a bunch of ten-year-olds.  WE spent our time drinking beer and moaning and griping but we never actually even tried to do anything about it.

What do we have to show for it?  A country where Whites will be in the minority by 2020 or 2030.  2040 at the outside.  We have a lying phony-baloney half Black president who is more interested in photo ops and playing warlord than actually making this country better.  We have a congress full of corporate stooges who prefer playing political games while the average American sees his prosperity going down la toilette.  We have a supreme court that bases its rulings on corporate wishes and political correctness rather than on what our Founding Fathers intended.  We have a government controlled by the obscenely wealthy to further THEIR agenda while the rest of us go to hell.

I'm very sorry to say that we got the America we deserve.  But it's still not too late.  If it were, I wouldn't be here knocking myself out working for the 14 Words at least 300 days a year.  I'd give up, do a little White flight the hell out of this Babylon of Races known as Southern California and go back to Salem, New Hampshire where it's still 90% White.  I'd get myself a place there, pull up the draw bridge and pray the creeping degeneration that is destroying us doesn't get that far before I die.  

Comrades, if none of us are willing to make any sacrifices at all, such as our time, effort, and money then it's all over now.  Think of this:  If just one percent - just one lousy percent of White Americans were willing to give this cause 110%, then there would be no stopping us.  One percent of White America outnumbers the Judeo-Capitalists at least 100 to one.  That's quite a force.

How to spot a wigger

Here is some helpful text I found on the internet:
1: Hat. Must be worn backwards, as a symbol of anti-conformity. Under the hat- a 'mushroom' hairstyle, or shaved head altogether. Hat must bear a sports team or a marijuana leaf.

2: Practiced sneer. Try not to laugh in the wigger's face when he flashes you his look of anger, as he's spent many hours in the mirror getting his look of disdain 'just right'. The practiced sneer may reveal a gold-capped tooth or 2, but this is optional, as many parents dont have extended dental plans which will cover their kids cosmetic dentistry.

3: Tattoos. Usually a tribute to a fallen rapper, sometimes the motto or slogan of a rap group, sometimes a pot leaf. In general, poor artwork that will be hard to explain to the grandkids (Grandpa- what's 'Thug Life'??)

4:T-shirt bearing logo of clothing company that doesnt want the wigger wearing their clothes. Like FUBU- an acronym meaning 'For Us, By Us', a black-owned company committing blatant racism by implying that the clothes they sell are for blacks only. This fact is lost on the wigger, however, as he continues to patronize this company, much to the dismay of his (rapidly depleting) dignity.

5: Gang sign of gang he's not in. Since he lives miles away from the first hint of urban blight, he can afford to throw up sets he doesnt belong to, scaring the elderly into thinking he's some kind of gangster, without fear of being killed by a real gang member for the crime of 'false-flaggin' (claiming you're down with a particular gang when you're not).

6: Gun. Usually a Crossman BB gun, just realistic enough to get wigger chicks to swoon over their fearless romeo.

7: Underwear sticking out a minimum of 6 inches above waistband. Some say it's laziness, but to a wigger, it's all about fashion. Not only do you get to show off otherwise-private underwear labels to the world, you get the added thrill of ventilation on your asscrack.

8: Jeans. Expensive. The wigger must wear pants that are a minimum of 40 full sizes over his original size. The legs should be large enough to hold the population of a 3rd world country in, and should drag across the floor freely, like the train on a wedding gown.

9: Sneakers. Dont tell the wigger that his 250 dollar sneakers are made of the same material as Kmart's 25 dollar ones- it's all about fashion, yet again, and to wear anything less than the hottest sneaker out at the moment would be akin to showing up at a black panther meeting wearing a klan hood. In case you were wondering, the wigger has no remorse over the fact that his sneakers were made in a sweatshop by an underage peon laborer who made 2 cents that entire day making the shoes that help the wigger fit in with his materialistic social circle.

10: The city. This is the wigger's preferred habitat. Ignore the fact that they mostly dwell in the suburbs, any decent, upstanding wigger will, AT MINIMUM, have a cardboard cutout of a city skyline in his suburan backyard to stand in front of while posing as a hardened tough guy.

11: They'll be white!

ANP News And Announcements

Firstly all I'll say regarding pledges is if you don't receive your copy of the White Worker and you haven't sent in your pledge for February or even sent an email to HQ saying why, don't be wondering why you didn't get it this month.

Second, our next episode of ANP Talk Shoe Radio will be tomorrow (Wednesday) February 27, at 5:00 PM PST, instead of the usual Saturday.  The reason is work schedule conflicts.  The topic will be the original 25 Point Programme of the NSDAP.  I'm sure you'll see how much more similar the ANP's program is to the NSDAP's than these "other" groups in America today.  And regarding what differences there are between our party and Hitler's, bear in mind that America's Aryans are of many nationalities where Germany's were all German/Austrian.  Add to the fact that times have changed and this is the 21st Century and not the 1920's.  Some things never change, while others do.  If we don't change with the times we'll be left in the past.

As is typical for this time of the month, sales at The Nazi Store have dropped.  Friday is the 1st and everyone is getting down to broke - including me.  But Friday is both a new month and payday.   $upport the ANP and buy one of our new DVD's or one of our other products.  Give a little, get a little.  As the Romans used to say, Quid Pro Quo (something for something if I'm not mistaken).

Need a laugh?  Enjoy!

How helpful is that, homies?

Pink stripe on NC illegal immigrant licenses eyed

By MICHAEL BIESECKER | Associated Press – Fri, Feb 22, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A new North Carolina driver's license set to be issued to some illegal immigrants has a bright pink stripe and the bold words "NO LAWFUL STATUS," raising concerns about whether the design will brand those who show it.
The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles announced last week they would begin issuing the licenses March 25 following a lengthy legal review. The Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program grants valid federal work permits to qualified applicants brought to the U.S. as children without legal authorization.
Some Republican lawmakers in the state have balked at the idea, filing a bill Thursday to bar the DMV from granting the licenses until at least June.
Cinthia Marroquin, a 22-year-old Raleigh resident awaiting approval for a DACA permit, said the longer the license issue is delayed, the longer it will take for her to get a job and drive herself to work. Even if she is able to get one, she is worried about presenting a license declaring she has "NO LAWFUL STATUS" at a police roadblock or while writing a check at the grocery store.
"A lot of us are just scared," said Marroquin, who came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was 15. "We just want to be able to get a job and drive to work. Having that license is just going to show everybody you're here illegally, just buying a beer or writing a check. You don't know how people might react."
The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina also takes issue with the designation.
"North Carolina should not be making it harder for aspiring citizens to integrate and contribute to our communities by branding them with a second-class driver's license," said ACLU attorney Raul Pinto. "There is simply no reason for officials to stigmatize people who are in the U.S. legally with an unnecessary marker that could lead to harassment, confusion, and racial profiling."
Almost from the moment President Barack Obama announced the program in June, states across the country grappled with how and whether to issue driver's licenses to those granted legal presence.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said it is up to officials in each state to make their own determination about what to do. Many states, such as Oregon and Georgia, have announced that they will grant driving privileges to those eligible.
In Arizona, where Republican Gov. Jan Brewer has pledged that DACA youths will not get driver's licenses, the state's DMV still lists federal work permits among the documents making people eligible for one.
The issue is especially politically charged in North Carolina, where current state law ordains a driver's license will be issued to anyone who holds valid federal documentation of their "legal presence" in the United States.
The office of the state's Democratic attorney general in an opinion last month said that under federal law, DACA participants have a "legal presence," even if they do not have "lawful status." Therefore, state law requires that DACA participants be granted licenses. Republican Gov. Pat McCrory's administration agreed, announcing last week the DMV would begin issuing the licenses.
That has upset many conservatives in McCrory's own party, including Rep. Mark Brody (R-Union). He is one of four freshmen legislators who introduced a bill Thursday to bar DMV from issuing licenses to DACA participants before June 15, potentially giving time to craft a permanent change to state law.
Brody said he believes strongly that the DACA program violated the U.S. Constitution because it was implemented without congressional approval. Obama said last year he was forced to take executive action by the decades-long failure of Congress to consider meaningful immigration reform.
"We need a time out," said Brody, a construction contractor. "We don't need to have the federal government dictating to us how we are supposed to issue licenses in this state. We do it, and that's a privilege we have under our Constitution."
Among the concerns raised by Brody and other bill sponsors is that illegal immigrants might use their new licenses to access social programs or register to vote, despite the bright pink markings. An extensive 2011 review of the state's 6.4 million registered voters by the N.C. Board of Elections found 12 instances were a non-citizen successfully cast a ballot.
Jose Rico, a 23-year-old Raleigh resident from Mexico who has already been issued DACA work permit, said he plans to be in line at the DMV on March 25 to get a license, even if it's pink. He will be extremely disappointed if state legislators pass a bill delaying or a denying his ability to do so.
"I don't know what's wrong with these people, why they're so afraid of people like me," said Rico, who has lived in the U.S. since he was 13. "It's so frustrating. I passed a federal background check, done everything right by the book. I'm paying taxes. I mean, we're just kids trying to go to school."
Rico, I'd like to answer your question.  We're not afraid of you.  We want you GONE.  We don't want you and your kind using our social services when you don't pay into them.  We don't want you to go to college and then compete with us for the few good jobs that are left.  And we don't want your language and culture pushing aside ours.  Your skin colour has nothing to do with it.
Comrades, IF they HAVE to give illegals licences, I like this pink strip idea.  Too bad it won't last.  Someone will sue and our liberal courts will say:  UNCONSTITUTIONAL.  Just wait and see.
The only thing we owe illegals is a one way trip back home.
The government says we can't deport them all even if we wanted.  Why not?  National Socialist Germany deported all its undesirable aliens and quite efficiently too.  There's not one single legitimate reason why we can't do likewise.
Thanks again for the story Dr. Hauptmann.

You'll Love This!

When Comrades Rick and Gina sent this to me I just had to post it because it is so funny.  We always think of the British as so stuffy, polite, and respectable one would never think they would ever do something like this.

It seems the British sent George W. Bush a bust of Winston Churchill while he was still in office.  Recently President Obama sent it back.  On his last trip to England, the RAF flew a squadron of Harrier fighters over Obama in a "salute."  Look very closely at the photograph.  The formation spells out two words.

Is this photo real?  I don't know, but it could be.  Sending back the bust may have been taken as an insult and the RAF responded accordingly.  I don't know for certain if this is real but I sure hope so.

"Keep your so-called workers," U.S. boss tells France

PARIS (Reuters) - The CEO of a U.S. tire company has delivered a crushing summary of how some outsiders view France's work ethic in a letter saying he would have to be stupid to take over a factory whose staff only put in three hours work a day.
Titan International's Maurice "Morry" Taylor, who goes by "The Grizz" for his bear-like no-nonsense style, told France's left-wing industry minister in a letter published by Paris media that he had no interest in buying a doomed plant.
"The French workforce gets paid high wages but works only three hours. They get one hour for breaks and lunch, talk for three and work for three," Taylor wrote on February 8 in the letter in English addressed to the minister, Arnaud Montebourg.
"I told this to the French union workers to their faces. They told me that's the French way!" Taylor added in the letter, which was posted by business daily Les Echos on its website on Wednesday and which the ministry confirmed was genuine.
"How stupid do you think we are?" he asked at one point.
"Titan is going to buy a Chinese tire company or an Indian one, pay less than one Euro per hour wage and ship all the tires France needs," he said. "You can keep the so-called workers."
As the leaked letter drew outrage in France, Montebourg penned a scathing response, spelling out the reasons why France routinely ranks as a leading destination for companies to invest, beating China and India in mid-2012.
"Can I remind you that Titan, the business you run, is 20 times smaller than Michelin, the French (tire) technology leader with international influence, and 35 times less profitable," Montebourg wrote, in a two-page letter in French.
"This just shows the extent to which Titan could have learned and gained, enormously, from a presence in France."
Montebourg's letter, a copy of which was sent to Reuters, said Taylor's comments, "as extremist as they are insulting", illustrated his ignorance of France.
Union leaders also reacted furiously. CGT official Mickael Wamen said Taylor belonged more "in an asylum" than in the boardroom of a multinational and noted his views were based on a visit to a troubled plant whose operations had been cut back.
The vicious exchange made for another public knock to France's business image after verbal attacks last year by Montebourg on firms seeking to shut ailing industrial sites prompted international derision.
Combined with concern over plans for a 75-percent "millionaires' tax", Montebourg's antics drove London Mayor Boris Johnson to tell an international business audience that it seemed France was being run by left-wing revolutionaries.
Socialist President Francois Hollande may take some comfort in the view Taylor expressed of Washington: "The U.S. government is not much better than the French," he wrote, saying Western leaders were failing to halt state-subsidized Chinese exports.
The row has pitted an outspoken former anti-globalization campaigner, the loose cannon of Hollande's government, against a right-winger who revels in provocation and tough-talking.
Proud of being "The Grizz" -- his group's logo features a cartoon bear and its website opens to the roar of a grizzly -- Taylor has clashed with unions before and once suggested that a U.S. judge was "smoking dope" after a ruling against his firm.
He built up Illinois-based Titan over 23 years into a global brand in tires for tractors and other off-road machinery and ran for the White House in the 1996 Republican primary, campaigning on a pro-business ticket.
At that time, he admitted to being "abrasive" in order to "get the job done": "The politicians, they all want you to like them," he told an interviewer. "I don't care if people like me."
To Montebourg, the author of "Kill All the Lawyers and Other Ways to Fix the Government" wrote: "You're a politician so you don't want to rock the boat ... France will lose its industrial business because its government is more government."
Taylor's letter was a response to Paris having approached Titan as a possible buyer of U.S. group Goodyear's Amiens Nord factory in northern France. Montebourg told reporters earlier on Wednesday that he would put his answer in a letter.
In it, he noted the United States is the No. 1 investor in France with 4,200 U.S. subsidiaries employing nearly half a million people in the country. He said those firms appreciated French productivity and "savoir-faire" and warned that Paris would fight others which exploit cheap labor.
Montebourg has often lashed out at cheap imports of manufactured goods from low-wage countries such as China and last year told the boss of Indian steelmaker ArcelorMittal he was unwelcome in a spat over a shuttered plant in France.
Despite having per-head productivity levels that rank among the best in Europe, economists blame France's rigid hiring and firing laws for a long industrial decline that has dented exports. Many also fault the country's 35-hour work week for diminishing competitiveness with Germany.
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co's Amiens Nord plant employs 1,250 people, who have been battling demands they work more shifts or accept layoffs. The site now faces closure.
Talks last year with Titan over a possible rescue fell down after a failure to reach a deal with unions on voluntary redundancies.
Taylor accused France of being at fault. "Titan is the one with the money and the talent to produce tires. What does the crazy union have? It has the French government."
(Additional reporting by Christian Plumb and Elizabeth Pineau; Writing by Catherine Bremer; Editing by Alastair Macdonald and Giles Elgood)
What we have here is a case of greedy Judeo-Capitalists vs. Lazy Workers.  Both sides are dead wrong.  Workers should be willing to put in a full day's work for a full day's pay, and employers should be willing to pay a fair wage and proper benefits.
What shocked me is that both sides seem proud of themselves.   Morry Taylor was practically bragging that he could move his business to India and China and pay workers one Euro an hour with no benefits.   He said he doesn't want French workers - yet he'll gladly sell them his products.  Without jobs, just what are the people supposed to use to buy his products?
The workers are no better.  Three hours a day is considered full time?!  WTF!  I'd like to get in on a sweet deal like that.  The trouble is, what company could possibly stay in business putting up with those shenanigans from the workers?  
National Socialism requires employers to pay a fair wage with three weeks vacation plus three weeks paid sick leave a year.  However, employees are expected to maintain a high work ethic and put in a full days work.
With both employers and employees treating each other with fairness and respect is it any wonder that National Socialist Germany's economy (before the war) was the finest in the world?   It can happen again. If we have anything to say about it it will.  And if we can't, hopefully we will have paved the way for the next generation of  American National Socialists to continue the struggle.
Yet again, my thanks to Dr. Hauptmann for sending me this story.

Flu season fuels debate over paid sick time laws

By JENNIFER PELTZ | Associated Press 

NEW YORK (AP) — Sniffling, groggy and afraid she had caught the flu, Diana Zavala dragged herself in to work anyway for a day she felt she couldn't afford to miss.
A school speech therapist who works as an independent contractor, she doesn't have paid sick days. So the mother of two reported to work and hoped for the best — and was aching, shivering and coughing by the end of the day. She stayed home the next day, then loaded up on medicine and returned to work.
"It's a balancing act" between physical health and financial well-being, she said.
An unusually early and vigorous flu season is drawing attention to a cause that has scored victories but also hit roadblocks in recent years: mandatory paid sick leave for a third of civilian workers — more than 40 million people — who don't have it.
Supporters and opponents are particularly watching New York City, where lawmakers are weighing a sick leave proposal amid a competitive mayoral race.
Pointing to a flu outbreak that the governor has called a public health emergency, dozens of doctors, nurses, lawmakers and activists — some in surgical masks — rallied Friday on the City Hall steps to call for passage of the measure, which has awaited a City Council vote for nearly three years. Two likely mayoral contenders have also pressed the point.
The flu spike is making people more aware of the argument for sick pay, said Ellen Bravo, executive director of Family Values at Work, which promotes paid sick time initiatives around the country. "There's people who say, 'OK, I get it — you don't want your server coughing on your food,'" she said.
Advocates have cast paid sick time as both a workforce issue akin to parental leave and "living wage" laws, and a public health priority.
But to some business owners, paid sick leave is an impractical and unfair burden for small operations. Critics also say the timing is bad, given the choppy economy and the hardships inflicted by Superstorm Sandy.
Michael Sinensky, an owner of seven bars and restaurants around the city, was against the sick time proposal before Sandy. And after the storm shut down four of his restaurants for days or weeks, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars that his insurers have yet to pay, "we're in survival mode."
"We're at the point, right now, where we cannot afford additional social initiatives," said Sinensky, whose roughly 500 employees switch shifts if they can't work, an arrangement that some restaurateurs say benefits workers because paid sick time wouldn't include tips.
Employees without sick days are more likely to go to work with a contagious illness, send an ill child to school or day care and use hospital emergency rooms for care, according to a 2010 survey by the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center. A 2011 study in the American Journal of Public Health estimated that a lack of sick time helped spread 5 million cases of flu-like illness during the 2009 swine flu outbreak.
To be sure, many employees entitled to sick time go to work ill anyway, out of dedication or at least a desire to project it. But the work-through-it ethic is shifting somewhat amid growing awareness about spreading sickness.
"Right now, where companies' incentives lie is butting right up against this concern over people coming into the workplace, infecting others and bringing productivity of a whole company down," said John A. Challenger, CEO of employer consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
Paid sick day requirements are often popular in polls, but only four places have them: San Francisco, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and the state of Connecticut. The specific provisions vary.
Milwaukee voters approved a sick time requirement in 2008, but the state Legislature passed a law blocking it. Philadelphia's mayor vetoed a sick leave measure in 2011; lawmakers have since instituted a sick time requirement for businesses with city contracts. Voters rejected a paid sick day measure in Denver in 2011.
In New York, City Councilwoman Gale Brewer's proposal would require up to five paid sick days a year at businesses with at least five employees. It wouldn't include independent contractors, such as Zavala, who supports the idea nonetheless.
The idea boasts such supporters as feminist Gloria Steinem and "Sex and the City" actress Cynthia Nixon, as well as a majority of City Council members and a coalition of unions, women's groups and public health advocates. But it also faces influential opponents, including business groups, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who has virtually complete control over what matters come to a vote.
Quinn, who is expected to run for mayor, said she considers paid sick leave a worthy goal but doesn't think it would be wise to implement it in a sluggish economy. Two of her likely opponents, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Comptroller John Liu, have reiterated calls for paid sick leave in light of the flu season.
While the debate plays out, Emilio Palaguachi is recovering from the flu and looking for a job. The father of four was abruptly fired without explanation earlier this month from his job at a deli after taking a day off to go to a doctor, he said. His former employer couldn't be reached by telephone.
"I needed work," Palaguachi said after Friday's City Hall rally, but "I needed to see the doctor because I'm sick."
Associated Press writer Susan Haigh in Hartford, Conn., contributed to this report.
In National Socialist Germany, every worker had paid sick days.  Indeed people were encouraged to stay home from work if they were ill for their own good, and so as not to make their fellow workers ill.
For one third of America's workers it's no work, no pay.  Many have no choice.  They can't afford to miss work so they go in ill.  I'm lucky.  I don't get sick time either, but my work is so flexible I can take a day or two off if I have to and make it up by working a little extra when I feel better or by coming in on Saturdays.  I feel very sorry for those who simply have to deal with a pay loss and no way to make it up.  But that's how heartless the Judeo-Capitalist system is.  Employers don't care about their employees.   It's always, "I'm running a business here.  If you can't work, I can't pay you."   Or the old employer trying not to look like the bad guy routine, "The economy is so bad we're barely hanging on as it is.  I can't afford to pay you if you can't work."  Then the boss gets in his brand new Mercedes and drives home to his $500,000 home, kisses his sexy young second wife, and tells his housekeeper to make him a drink (the good stuff).
Comrades there's no two ways about it.  Judeo-Capitalism is dog-eat-dog, sink or swim.  The rich get richer by standing on the backs of the poor.  There's no bullshit way of denying it.  It's totally heartless.  The only way out is through a system that values everyone and doesn't punish one for not being financially successful.  That system is National Socialism.
In a Judeo-Capitalist system everyone who isn't rich, yet still believes he can be successful is always waiting for his ship to come in.  Too bad the wealthy have already sunk or hijacked that ship long before it could ever reach you.

Nurse sues after hospital grants dad's racial request

Feb 18, 2013   |  

 A black nurse is suing a Michigan hospital after officials there submitted to a man's request that no African-American nurses care for his newborn, according to the nurse's lawsuit. / File photo via Thinkstock
FLINT, Mich. -- An African-American nurse who is suing a Michigan hospital because she said it agreed to a man's request that no African-American nurses care for his newborn recalled Monday that she was stunned by her employer's actions.

"I didn't even know how to react," said Tonya Battle, 49, a veteran of the neonatal intensive care unit and a nearly 25-year employee of the Hurley Medical Center in Flint.

Battle's lawsuit states a note was posted on the assignment clipboard reading "No African American nurse to take care of baby," according to the eight-page complaint against the medical center.

Hurley, which according to its website was founded in 1908 and is a 443-bed teaching hospital, released a brief statement Monday, saying that it "does not comment on past or current litigation."

Battle said she was working as a registered nurse in Hurley's neonatal intensive care unit Oct. 31, when a man walked into the NICU, where Battle was at an infant's bedside. He reached toward the child, according to the lawsuit filed in Genesee County (Mich.) Circuit Court last month.

"I introduced myself to him. 'Hi, I'm Tonya and I'm taking care of your baby. Can I see your (identification) band?,' " Battle said, referring to the hospital-issued identification used to identify infants' parents. "And he said in return, 'And I need to see your supervisor.' "

Perplexed by his curtness, she asked for the charge nurse, who spoke separately to the man.

When the charge nurse returned, she told Battle that the father didn't want African Americans to care for his child. Further, the charge nurse told Battle that he had rolled up his sleeve to expose what appeared to be a swastika.

"I felt like I froze," Battle said. "I just was really dumbfounded. I couldn't believe that's why he was so angry (and) that's why he was requesting my charge nurse. I think my mouth hit the floor. It was really disbelief."

The charge nurse passed the request to her supervisor, and Battle was reassigned, according to the complaint.

Even after hospital officials removed the sign that had been placed for a short time on the assignment chart, Battle and other black nurses were not assigned to care for the baby for about a month "because of their race," according to the lawsuit. Battle is seeking punitive damages for emotional stress, mental anguish, humiliation and damage to her reputation.

Battle said colleagues have told her they were surprised at the hospital's stand and they have been supportive. But she said she felt the issue was important enough to pursue the matter legally because she expected Hurley to have turned down such a request.

"What flashed in my mind is, 'What's next? A note on the water fountain that says 'No blacks?' Or a note on the bathroom that says 'No blacks'?" she said.

Larry Dubin, a law professor at University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, called the hospital's actions, if true, "morally repugnant."

"The patient's father has the right to select the hospital to treat the child. The father does not have the right to exercise control over the hospital in discrimination of its employees," he said.

The case "puts into tension two different facets of the law," said Lance Gable, an associate professor specializing in health law at Wayne State University Law School.

Patients choose their doctors, he said. Some women prefer to see female gynecologists, for example.

"But there are also laws prohibiting discrimination," he added, citing the 1964 Civil Rights Act, among others.

"The bottom line is that the law is not clear about this, although I suspect the nurse will have a pretty strong case," Gable said.

One in three doctors in a 2007 survey said they felt patients believed they got better care if they matched their doctor's race. Patients' requests were more likely to be honored if the request came from someone who was female, non-white or Muslim, according to a report on the survey written in part by a University of Michigan researcher. [Gee, surprise, surprise! - Dan.]

But just how often hospitals receive requests based on race is unclear.

Vickie Winn, a spokeswoman for Children's Hospital of Michigan, said the hospital may try to accommodate a patient's request for providers with a certain religion or gender, but a request for a doctor based on race is different, she said.

"It has come up in the past, but generally speaking, we don't accommodate that. ... We have a very diverse population, and we just don't feed into those kinds of beliefs," Winn said.

Julie Gafkay, an employment discrimination and civil rights lawyer in Frankenmuth, Mich., who is representing Battle, said medical personnel might receive such requests from time to time, but employers must guard against racial discrimination.

"I don't doubt that people have made requests like this in the past. You're not going to control the prejudices and biases of people. That's not my client's issue. The problem she has ... is that her employer of 25 years granted" the request.

She added: "We made a decision in this country that that kind of discrimination is wrong."


What we have here is a classic case of one person's rights coming into direct conflict with another's.  As Ned Flanders of "The Simpsons" would say, "That's a dilly of a pickle!"

Professor Dubin has stated that the father did not have the right to demand that no Black nurses attend his child as it's discrimination.  However, a person does have the right to decide who administers health care to him and his minor children.

Personally I think the father unnecessarily opened up a hornet's nest, but I believe he has a right to decide who cares for his child.  I just wouldn't have made an issue of it.  After all, the baby doesn't know whether the person caring for him is White or Black.

I will say that when I have gone to a clinic - be it medical or dental, I tell them at the front desk I don't want to be treated by anyone who speaks English as a second language.  The reason for that is I just don't want to deal with some doctor or dentist who sounds like he just got off the boat from India yesterday.  The accents are often difficult to understand and when I talk to a doctor I want to grasp everything he or she says, and it annoys the hell out of me to have to ask people to repeat themselves.

It will be interesting to see how this turns out.  Betcha a buck the nurse wins.  That's how it is in this sickeningly liberal society.  It always amazes me how many people think they should be able to go through their entire lives without being offended.  Maybe on Bizzaro World, but not in the real world.

Once again we have Dr. Hauptmann to thank for this story.

The Rich Are Outraged Over This Video


This video was narrated by liberal Jew actor Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant).  It's right on the money, so to speak.  However, I have one question for Ed:  How much money do you have?

My thanks to Dr. Johann Hauptmann for sending this to me.

Rep. Phil Gingrey Offers Bill to End Chain Migration

Rep. Phil Gingrey
Rep. Phil Gingrey
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) has introduced H.R. 477 that would would eliminate the extended family visa categories (e.g., married sons and daughters of citizens, etc.), thus ending “chain migration” as recommended by the bi-partisan Barbara Jordan Commission in 1997. Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration. 
H.R. 477, which is one of NumbersUSA's top legislative priorities, would reduce the annual issuance of family-sponsored visas by more than 100,000. The impact wouldn't only be felt immediately, but would have a major impact on future immigration numbers.
"Chain migration categories multiply every mistake made in the immigration system and ultimately are responsible for more than half of all immigration," NumbersUSA President and CEO Roy Beck said. "And they cause much of illegal immigration by enticing millions of foreign citizens to believe that they eventually have a right to come to the U.S. so why not just come illegally and wait for their time."
Rep. Gingrey's bill would also eliminate the parents category, and instead, create a renewable visa class for the parents of U.S. citizens. However, the parents would not be eligible to work in the United States and a U.S. citizen son or daughter would have to provide satisfactory proof that they can financially support their immigrant parents, including proof of health care coverage while the parents are residing in the United States.
As you know, I put NO trust in systemites.  That doesn't stop me from agreeing with Gingrey that chain migration MUST end.  Mestizos are the biggest offenders in that area.  They come here (the legal ones I mean) and once they get their citizenship they sponsor family members in Mexico so they can avoid the seven year wait on the immigration list.  If you want to immigrate to the United States, if you have someone who will sponsor you and guarantee that you won't be going on welfare, you get to immigrate a whole lot sooner.
One of the problems is that Mestizos consider people relatives that we would not.  A Latino would consider their "cousin's wife's cousin's husband" to be their cousin.  Mexico recognizes the concept of a "cousin-in-law" while the United States does not.  They'll sponsor someone who is the spouse of their spouses cousin - a person not related to them in any way - even by Mexican law.
One of the things that grinds my gears most about Mestizos is they refuse to follow the old adage, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."  Many refuse to learn English simply because they don't want to be bothered.  They feel we should celebrate their holidays like Cinco de Mayo, but they don't want to celebrate ours.  They feel they should be allowed to fly the Mexican flag, yet they don't seem to think there's anything wrong with banning the American flag in Mexico (bear in mind many Americans retire in Mexico because it's cheaper to live there).  They feel it's racist to try and get English named as America's official language, yet in Mexico Spanish IS the official language and they think that's completely fair.
Comrades, it's because of immigration that we will be the minority nationwide probably by the 2020 Census.  2030 at the most.  We have to stop ALL immigration - not just illegal and chain migration - until we can restore some balance in this country.

Mobile Home Life From A Seven-Year-Old's Perspective

Being Sunday, I thought I'd lighten up instead of being serious.  As most of you know, I live in a mobile home - NOT a trailer.  A trailer can be hooked up to a pickup truck and towed.  Mine would require a semi to move it.  Anyway, I read this amusing little story the other day and being a mobile home dweller I thought it was great.

A second grader returned to school after Spring Break.  His teacher asked the entire class to write about what they did over their vacation.  This little boy wrote the following:

Over Spring Break we went to visit my grandma and grandpa.  They used to live in a regular wood house, but when my grandpa turned 65 he got to be retarded and sold his wood house and moved into a tin one in a small town with a lot of other retarded people who also live in tin houses.  It's in a very hot state called Aridzona near a city called Feenix.

People who live in the Tin House Town don't have real cars.  They all drive around in these little electric cars that don't have no doors or windshield.  The men all wear shorts and these funny shirts with pictures of palm trees on them.  They all play this funny game where they push hockey pucks with a weird sort of stick on the cement and try and get the pucks into a triangle with numbers in it at the other end.  They also play this other game where you color in numbers on a card and everyone keeps yelling "Bingo!".

I also noticed that all retarded people smell just like my grandparents.  Grandma says it cause they all use this cream called Ben's Gay to make their muscles stop hurting.  It kinda smells like mint, but not the good kind.
Grandma also says that some retarded people have to wear diapers for grownups.  I guess when you get that old you forget how to go to the bathroom right.  I just stopped wetting the bed last year.  I hope I won't start doing it again when I get to be a retarded person.

Tin House Town also has a big wall all around it.  It was too high for me to climb over and I'm a good climber.  They also have a front gate with a little glass shack.  A man who is sort of dressed like a policeman but is not a real policeman sits in it all day long and opens the gate to let people in and out.  Or maybe he's there to keep all the retarded people from leaving.  I'm not sure which.

Tin House Town also has a swimming pool.  That was fun.  But I think that when you become retarded, you forget how to swim because all the people were just standing around in the water not doing anything.  Some of them looked at me like they was mad when I dove in and made a big splash.

I love grandma and grandpa, and I did have some fun there but it was boring a lot of the time.  They don't have no computer, and they have a tiny little TV.  It was only 27 inches wide.  That was real small!   They didn't even have no cable.  Grandma says that's because retarded people don't watch a lot of TV.  I guess they don't make the kinds of shows they watched when they were little anymore.  Grandma says when she was little they listened to the radio.  I like the radio, but Grandma says it's just a bunch of noise nowadays.  I guess when you get to be retarded you don't like the same things no more.

I didn't like that place too much.  Grandpa said that when I get old and retarded I'll want to live there too.  When you get to be retarded, maybe you get crazy as well as old.  Why would anybody want to live in a Tin House in the middle of a hot desert, wear grownup diapers, just stand around in the pool, shout "Bingo", and push hockey pucks around on a stick?  I guess I'll have to wait til I get to be a retarded person to know for sure.  Maybe I'll get to live next door to them by then.

The European House of Cards is About to Collapse

By Graham Summers

The house of cards that is Europe is close to collapsing as those widely held responsible for solving the Crisis (Prime Ministers, Treasurers and ECB head Mario Draghi) have all been recently implicated in corruption scandals.
Those EU leaders who have yet to be implicated in scandals are not faring much better than their more corrupt counterparts. In France, socialist Prime Minister Francois Hollande, has proven yet again that socialism doesn't work by chasing after the wealthy and trying to grow France's public sector... when the public sector already accounts for 56% of French employment.
France was already suffering from a lack of competitiveness. Now that wealthy businesspeople are fleeing the country (meaning investment will dry up), the economy has begun to positively implode.
The first sign of this came actually came from Germany. As we noted a few months ago, Germany had prepared a working group to examine the impact of an economic collapse in France.
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has asked a panel of advisers to look into reform proposals for France, concerned that weakness in the euro zone's second largest economy could come back to haunt Germany and the broader currency bloc.
Two officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters this week that Schaeuble asked the council of economic advisers to the German government, known as the "wise men", to consider drafting a report on what France should do...
"The biggest problem at the moment in the euro zone is no longer Greece, Spain or Italy, instead it is France, because it has not undertaken anything in order to truly re-establish its competitiveness, and is even heading in the opposite direction," Feld said on Wednesday. 
"France needs labour market reforms, it is the country among euro zone countries that works the least each year, so how do you expect any results from that? Things won't work unless more efforts are made."
This German concern has proven to be well founded, as the recent spate of French economic data has been truly horrific.
Auto sales for 2012 fell 13% from those of 2011. Sales of existing homes outside of Paris fell 20% year over year for the third quarter of 2012. New home sales fell 25%. Even the high-end real estate markets are collapsing with sales for apartments in Paris that cost over €2 million collapsing an incredible 42% in 2012.
Since the EU Crisis began in 2008, France and Germany have been the two key countries backstopping the implosion. The fact that France is now facing an economic implosion does not bode well for the future of the Euro or the EU.
The other sovereign backdrop for the EU, Germany, is also experiencing an economic slowdown.
The German economy was hit hard by the euro zone crisis in the final quarter of last year, shrinking more than at any point in nearly three years as traditionally strong exports and investment slowed, the Statistics Office said on Tuesday...
Gross domestic product shrank by 0.5 percent in the final three months of 2012, the worst quarterly performance since Germany fell into a recession during the global financial crisis in 2008/2009 and only the second contraction since it ended.
The parlous fourth quarter pushed overall growth for the year down to 0.7 percent, a sharp slowdown from the 3.0 percent registered in 2011 and a post-reunification record of 4.2 percent in 2010. The 2012 figure was a tad below a Reuters consensus forecast for growth of 0.8 percent.
Thus, we find that Europe's primary political market props (EU leaders including ECB head Mario Draghi) are coming unraveled at the precise time that EU banks are showing warning signs and the most important EU economies are heading sharply south.
2013 is going to be a very interesting year for Europe.
I still say Mr. Summers is one of us and he doesn't even know it!  For one thing, he's the only financial analyst who tells the people the truth.  And the truth is Europe is a mess and we're not that far behind.
Europe is a sneak peak at what is to come in the United States.  Their globalization and multicultural policies are a dismal failure.  Despite this, our government is determined to take us down the same path to ruin.  Either they are trying to destroy us, or they are incredibly stupid.  The EU is a perfect example of "what not to do".  Yet our "wonderful" leaders want to form a sort of North American Union ala the European Union.  It's like if your neighbour tried to fix his leaky roof and failed, and you knew he failed, yet you did exactly the same thing he did when you tried to fix your leaky roof.  It's crazy.  How could you expect anything but failure.  Ever heard the Yiddish terms Schlamele and schlamazel?  A schlamele is a guy who makes a stupid suggestion and a schlamazel is the guy who listens to it.  In this case, Europe is the schlamele, and the United States is the schlamazel.  I don't want to be either.
Until this country wakes up and sees that National Socialism is the ONLY way, this entire country will be nothing more than a nation of schlamazels.
BTW, I say Mr. Summers would have made a great Reich Economics Minister.
