Good News For Normal People!

All of the following stories are good news...unless you're a lefty ideologue. You will notice that the Boston MSM have largely ignored all of these reports.

You're shocked, I know.

** Final Purge of Al Qaeda In Iraq Underway. Major-General Mark Hertling, American commander in the north, said: “I think we’re at the irreversible point.”

** Second-Hand Smoke Will NOT Give You Lung Cancer! This is good news for normal people, even those who hate the smell of cigarettes, because less cancer is a good thing. So why does it make so many lefties mad when the research shows that "In 2003 a definitive paper on SHS and lung cancer mortality was published in the British Medical Journal. It is the largest and most detailed study ever reported. The authors studied more than 35,000 California never-smokers over a 39-year period and found no statistically significant association between exposure to SHS and lung cancer mortality."

** Big Wigs Who Hired Illegals (Finally!) Being Punished. "Two supervisors at an Iowa meatpacking plant that was raided by federal immigration agents in May were arrested and charged with encouraging people to live in the United States illegally.

Juan Carlos Guerrero-Espinoza, 35, and Martin De La Rosa-Loera, 43, were also charged Thursday with and aiding and abetting the possession and use of fraudulent identification. Guerrero-Espinoza was charged with aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft."

But wait a minute--If it's a federal crime to "encourage people to live in the US illegally" (and it is, by the way), then why is Massachusetts giving taxfunded medical care, welfare benefits and housing to crimmigrants? Is that, like, illegal and stuff?

That's why we've got to celebrate the good news when we get it.
