TKC still fights on his blog against libel suit.

Tony Botello's fighting.  After having a lawsuit filed against him by the retiring IAFF President, Louie Wright, Tony continues his apologies.  Now soliciting donations for his legal defense fund.  And he's getting his supporters... here's a link to Bottom Line Communications, run by John Landsberg.  In it, Landsberg links to the donations and also publishes this link which is part of the suit and which TKC had put on his site.  This youtube video, by an unknown producer, is critical of Wright and the action by the city to what amounted to a hostile takeover of Mast ambulance by the KCFD:

Jobless fair draws long lines in Atlanta.
Thousands of unemployed waited overnight, camping out in their business suits and office heels and braving the tormenting heat in Atlanta to stand in line for a job fair Thursday. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.ABC News Reports...

Cutback on deportations of low risk Latinos.  Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care.

The move marks a major step for President Obama, who for months has said he does not have broad categorical authority to halt deportations and said he must follow the laws as Congress has written them.

But in letters to Congress on Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she does have discretion to focus on “priorities” and that her department and the Justice Department will review all ongoing cases to see who meets the new criteria.

The Dream Act by Decree.  Obama tells the republicans to go to hell with their reindeer games about comprehensive immigration reform.


Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi may be making preparations for what is described as a "last stand" in Tripoli as a months-long NATO air campaign continues amid reports of rebel advances, according to two U.S. officials.
A second U.S. official confirmed a similar concern and said the Gadhafi plan could involve a final military offensive against civilians, launched from his last major strongholds around the Libyan capital."We believe he could be planning for a last stand," one U.S. official said.

The officials, who have knowledge of the situation on the ground, did not want to be named because of the sensitive intelligence matters.

Tripoli is under attack by rebels on three sides.


1.) Money cannot buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

2.) Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastard’s name.

3.) Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you...when they're in trouble again.

4.) Many people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.

5.) Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then neither does milk.
