Aztlanites Demand May Day Vacation for Illegals

Just got this from my friends at Aztlan-is-coming:

Los Angeles, Alta California – March 31, 2006 – (ACN) The coalition that brought over 700,000 pro-immigrant rights marchers to Los Angeles announced yesterday that the next mass action will be “an economic and labor boycott that will paralyze the US economy”. The planned boycott, which now has international support, is to protest the racist HR4437 legislation being debated in the US Senate.

Dr. Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights (NAHR), said “We are living through very dangerous times and we must take advantage of the moment. If we just sit and wait to see what happens, everything we have accomplished so far may go to waste. That is why we must continue the struggle to once and for all defeat that racist proposal (HR4437)”.

Coalition member Roberto Reveles of “Unidos en Arizona” said that they will help host a “Summit Meeting” in Phoenix, Arizona to work out the details of the “international economic and labor boycott”. The summit will take place on April 8th and 9th. The boycott will take place on May 1 (Day of the International Solidarity of Workers) or May 5 (Cinco de Mayo). To be debated is whether a boycott beginning on May 1 and ending with a huge “fiesta” on May 5 can be sustained.

The stock market will crash! The McDonalds’ will all close! “Our” lawns will turn brown! Whatever will we do?

Real Ugly got this shot at him…

Adam and Steve are out of luck

… at least in Massachusetts, if they don’t reside there and wanna get married.

BOSTON (Reuters) – Gay couples from American states that ban same-sex marriages cannot legally be wed in Massachusetts where such unions are legal, the state’s highest court ruled on Thursday.

The ruling was made in response to a lawsuit filed by gay couples from Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, which prohibit same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts made its ruling after Republican Gov. Mitt Romney had ordered local authorities to refuse applications to be wed in Massachusetts because they resided outside of the state.

Before you gape, aghast, at this silliness, the article goes on:

The case was focused on an obscure law passed in 1913 that bars out-of-state couples from marrying in Massachusetts if their own states fail to recognize the union.

A law no doubt meant to prevent those uppity black people from marrying white folks and causing an interstate ruckus.

Please don’t pray for me

An amazingly silly new study, “the largest of it’s kind”, announced today that prayer doesn’t help. If you have heart problems, an attack, or surgery, you’re screwed no matter who is praying for you.

researchers found that having people pray for heart bypass surgery patients had no effect on their recovery. In fact, patients who knew they were being prayed for had a slightly higher rate of complications.

Researchers emphasized that their work can’t address whether God exists or answers prayers made on another’s behalf. The study can only look for an effect from prayers offered as part of the research, they said.

They also said they had no explanation for the higher complication rate in patients who knew they were being prayed for, in comparison to patients who only knew it was possible prayers were being said for them.

No word on who will be praying for the idiots that sponsored this study. Nor whether it will have any effect on their decision making process in the future.

Oh, excuse me, Iran? Something cookin’ for y’all

Here’s some food for thought for those “threat allergic” Islamofascists in Iran:

The US military plans to detonate a 700 tonne explosive charge in a test called “Divine Strake” that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said.

Tegnelia said the test was part of a US effort to develop weapons capable of destroying deeply buried bunkers housing nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.

“We have several very large penetrators we’re developing,” he told defense reporters.

“We also have — are you ready for this – a 700-tonne explosively formed charge that we’re going to be putting in a tunnel in Nevada,” he said.

“And that represents to us the largest single explosive that we could imagine doing conventionally to solve that problem,” he said.

The aim is to measure the effect of the blast on hard granite structures, he said.

He didn’t indicate whether anyone told the Iranians about what was up but:

He said the Russians have been notified of the test, which is scheduled for the first week of June at the Nevada test range.

All he wanted was to express himself…

… and perhaps help his parents win the “sue the local school district” lottery:

All 7-year-old Dallas Saenz wants to do is express his personality, but school officials in this Panhandle town have countered that the first-grader’s Mohawk hairdo is disruptive.

Highland Elementary officials sent Dallas home March 10, the day before spring break, because of the spiky cut. When classes resumed March 20, Dallas had tamed the Mohawk by combing it down.

They laughed at me,” he said.

The next day his parents allowed him to go to school with the spiked styling, but he was again ordered home.
