Ku Klux Klan Advances

According to a report by the Associated Press, the Ku Klux Klan distributed leaflets in Virginia warning "Mexico is invading the United States and soon will demand we cede the southwestern states to their control, they already wave the flag of Mexico in our faces! They are not here to assimilate, they are here to form their own nation. And unless we get busy right NOW they will succeed!"

Clearly, white supremacist groups are using the anxiety over immigration and confusion about the undocumented to advance their own reprehensible and racist agenda. What is not as clearly known is that the primary target of the white supremacists is not Joe Public, but ICE and CBP officials. What the racists really seek is training and intelligence from those within law enforcement who can be duped into assisting them (source: Stratfor, a paysite). Thankfully, FBI and others who watch over the white supremacists are on to this, but the numbers are getting so large that some may slip thru the FBI cracks.

Hot Prospects Turn Cold, Build Defenses When You Look Like A Salesperson: Here's A Checklist Of Do's And Don'ts
Trey Ryder writes "In most cases, when you act and sound like a salesperson, your prospects treat you like a salesperson. They avoid you. They don't trust you. They don't even want to talk with you. This is why I urge lawyers to avoid selling-based marketing. To increase your prospect's trust, respect and confidence, stay in the education mode because education-based marketing is the key to attracting new clients with dignity."

Dear Editor:
Your comment (ID 09/05/07) is a beautiful rhetoric statement that should be capitalized. However, it is forgotten what made this country great but the influx of immigrants to this country.

Dear Editor:
I read Roger Algase's letter (ID 09/05/07) and David Utterback's response (ID 09/06/07) and feel I ought to weigh in as a former citizen of two officially multi-lingual nations, one built on the ashes of the polyglot Habsburg empire which died on the fires stoked by linguistic disputes. America is essentially monoglot right now and tolerates non-English speakers because they do not seek to turn their foreign language skills into rent-seeking behavior at the expense of the public fisque. Even if America were foolish enough to embrace permanent conflict over languages, the elites of the nation will remain English speakers for the foreseeable future, but conflict would be the result. To pretend that polices that take that into account oppress anyone except for the class of those who would like to be anointed mediators between "their" linguistic clique and the rest of society is oppressive is as foolish adopting Communist China's or the former Soviet Union's nationalities policies, which also depended on linguistic apartheid to buy off local representatives of non-majority speakers with party posts and government positions. Perhaps Mr. Algase things multi-lingualism is like socialism - it'll work if only "the right people", coincidentally much like himself, were administering it? If one wants multi-lingualism, move to permanently daggers-drawn Belgium, or drive across the border to Quebec and be forced to learn French or live in an embattles canton of increasingly non-European "Anglos". Most of us came here to be Americans and deeply resent those putting barriers in our way.

Dear Editor:
Just what is there about the word "illegal" that you do not understand. A "lawfull nation" has become an unlawfull nation and the rule of law means nothing ie the drug smugglers and yes the entire nations if you want to call them that, south of our border do business the unlawfull way. Just remember that "Anyone that will lie to you will steal from you" . That comes from 24 years sence WW2 in my service to this country.
