Anatomy of a Collapse

Posted on August 11, 2010 at 1:19pm 0 Comments

Brian McGrory, Boston Globe columnist, gets it absolutely right today

while writing about Matt Amorello’s continuing fall from grace. The

column is a little too maudlin and finger-pointy for my tastes but the

main theme is dead on target: Massachusetts government is filled with

under-qualified men and women who got their positions by being

politically… Continue

Massachusetts Folly Writ Large

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 12:40pm 0 Comments

Recently, my partner at Clean Sweep asked me what I thought about this

idea: Could the whole Obamacare debacle be nothing more than trying to

solve the health care crisis exacerbated by illegal aliens filling up

the emergency rooms? I told him I thought it was an interesting idea,

it had a ring of possibility to it, and that I’d see if I could find

some data reflecting on the issue. No matter which way the data falls,

it’s an interesting question and one worth… Continue

The Buck Stops . . . Somewhere

Posted on May 24, 2010 at 9:55am 2 Comments

Harry Truman was a colorful president, to say the least. He was

definitely the sort of person that tales and legends grow from but this

one, at least, has photographic evidence: a sign boldly stating “The

buck stops here” on one side (“I’m from Missouri” reads the other) sat

prominently on his desk. Right or wrong, and people have been debating

many of his decisions since he made them, Truman was willing to take the

fallout. How often do we see that in a… Continue

Trying something new - Voting for good people

The end result is that an elected official is expected to follow the

party line, regardless of use for the constituency, or else “bad” things

will happen. I don’t know about you, but I like to look at candidates

who roughly follow my way of thinking but also having the knowledge that

he or she will put the needs and desires of his or her district before

anything else. That’s all. It’s so simple that it’s a little too

profound to be followed by modern… Continue

ALERT ALERT

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?
