World-Herald Writes 'Trial Briefs';
Everyone Else Calls It 'Blogging'

The Omaha World-Herald continues to resist the notion that it is joining in the digital age of disseminating timely, up-to-the-minute information on the Internet.

The newspaper's "Trial Briefs" on Omaha.com is actually a blog. Reporters Lynn Safranek and Todd Cooper are documenting developments from the courtroom of the Christopher Edwards murder trial. The items are then posted on the newspaper's website.

Previously, the World-Herald has referred to e-mails as "electronic messages" in news stories.

Well, when you're a dinosaur with a receding circulation, it's hard use all this new-fangled tecnology, let alone actually say the words, "e-mail" and "blog."

Don't worry, folks.

The "sacred cow" of the World-Herald... the masses of illegal alien invaders, will recieve nary a mention in the blog.

Meanwhile, America's working poor continues to suffer from the invasion while those higher up the socio-economic pyramid profit from the invasion.

I predict civil turmoil in the future when America's underclass strikes back at the elites.

Civil War 2?

Revolutionary War 2?

I predict we will win.

May that day of reckoning come soon.

Has anyone read this thing?

Are the reporters purposely trying to get cute? It's a MURDER trial!

People talk about the demise of newspapers. Maybe they should be focusing on the quality of reporters dishing out the news.

I would expect better from Todd Cooper.

Obbop:

Where did this entry have anything to do with your "immigration" stance? Just curious.

Obbop - time to disconnect from the internet, unplug the computer and box it up.

After that, check into the nearest hospital to confirm that diagnosis of dementia you've got going there...

You're asking a little too much of Obbop, aren't you??? That's a little too much common sense in one post for him to comprehend...

Jose Angel Gutierrez, Prof. Univ. Texas at Arlington, founder La Raza Unida Party at UC Riverside 1/1995
"The border remains a military zone. We remain a hunted people. Now you think you have a destiny to fulfill in the land that historically has been ours for forty thousand years. And we're a new Mestizo nation. And they want us to discuss civil rights. Civil rights. What law made by white men to oppress all of us of color, female and male. This is our homeland. We cannot - we will not- and we must not be made illegal in our own homeland. We are not immigrants that came from another country to another country. We are migrants, free to travel the length and breadth of the Americas because we belong here. We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It's a matter of time. The explosion is in our population."


Mario Obledo, founding member/former nat'l director of Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), former CA Sect'y Health/Welfare on Tom Leykis radio talk show
"We're going to take over all the political institutions in California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state." Caller: "You also made the statement that California is going to become a Hispanic state and if anyone doesn't like it they should leave - did you say that?" Obledo: "I did. They ought to go back to Europe."


Augustin Cebada, Information Minister of Brown Berets, militant para-military soldiers of Aztlan shouting at U.S. citizens at an Independence Day rally in Los Angeles, 7/4/96
"Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets, we're here today to show L.A., show the minority people here, the Anglo-Saxons, that we are here, the majority, we're here to stay. We do the work in this city, we take care of the spoiled brat children, we clean their offices, we pick the food, we do the manufacturing in the factories of L.A., we are the majority here and we are not going to be pushed around. We're here in Westwood, this is the fourth time we've been here in the last two months, to show white Anglo-Saxon Protestant L.A., the few of you who remain, that we are the majority, and we claim this land as ours, sit's always been ours, and we're still here, and none of the talk about deporting. If anyone's going to be deported it's going to be you! Go back to Simi Valley, you skunks! Go back to Woodland Hills! Go back to Boston! To back to the Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You're old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you, leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die. Even their own ethicists say that they should die, that they have a duty to die. They're taking up too much space, too much air. We are the majority in L.A. There's over seven million Mexicans in L.A. County alone. We are the majority. And you're going to see every day more and more of it, as we manifest as our young people grow up, graduate from high school, go on to college and start taking over this society. The vast majority of our people are under the age of 15 years old. Right now we're already controlling those elections, whether it's by violence or nonviolence. Through love of having children we're going to take over." Other demonstrators: "Raza fuerza (brown race power), this is Aztlan, this is Mexico. They're the pilgrims on our land. Go back to the Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria."


Larry Elder, L.A. radio talk show host reads a letter from one of his listeners:
"Dear Larry, I spent ten years as a cruise hostess working at sea on cruise ships all over the world, so many of my assignments were to the Mexican Riviera, going back to the destination over and over again working friendships with many of the local people working along side of us in the Mexican tourist industry. Larry, the one phrase I heard a hundred times or more was, 'When the revolution is over.' When I asked for information, always the same answer, 'When they have California back.' Young or old, it seems they grew up being taught there would be a revolution some day. Somehow they would have California back."


Much much more out there.

Kids, in 1971 I was admitted into a meeting of the Brown Beret cell of the Berkeley California area, one of few "gringos" to have been admitted to a meeting.

I was threatened at gunpoint to never repeat what I heard there. Why was I there? Because I was "rare." One of the few gringos who fought back against the local Hispanic gangs. Luckily, those were the days of feet and fists vice the gunplay of today. Today, I would have been shot dead.

Years of experience amongst the illegal horde taught me well. You isolated brainwashed locals know nothing of what is slowly creeping into your area.

But, you will learn. And, I hope you learn very well. You deserve it.

Prepare to accept your new masters you ignorant provincial politically correct buffoons.

Look at history. Every great empire eventually falls. THe barbarians are not at the gate, they are inside the realm and it is only a matter of time until what you see below our southern border is embedded here.

Hope you like it!!!!

Why don't you just start your own blog to post your "thoughts" Obbop and spare the rest of us?

Obbop just proved my point -- intelligent thought is far out of his reach.

Holy Cow, Obbop, Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin lives on! Who are you going after next?-the Scottish-Americans? Nah, it should be those dangerous Candaians. I've always suspected a plot up there to overtake us.

Maybe you should take some of that precious energy you use doing this research and put it to better use in the community. Instead of finding a problem but having no viable solution for it, use your energies for finding a humane solution for it. Perhaps, if you are so afraid of the immigrants you should move to Mexico and bring the unions to that country. Maybe this would raise the living wage there and boost the economy so the people wouldn't have to come to the US for a decent living wage.

What a narrowminded, ignorant fool you are.
