Pillow talk

Well, you Chicago folks may have read my blog about the wife of Dave Kaptain, an Elgin City Council Member. She’s got serious concerns about global warming and, surprise!, it will be an agenda item post haste.

I was looking for information about a demonstration coming up in Carpentersville and I visited the LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens)* website to see if they were announcing it. And guess who their president is? Veronica Noland.

Yes, Veronica is the wife of Democrat State Senator Mike Noland. So far he’s held a public forum to seek input on giving licenses to illegals. There weren’t many citizens at the meeting who thought it was a good idea. He seemed disappointed.

After the meeting he indicated that he was leaning towards passage of the bill, but it never came up for a vote in Springfield.

We’ll just have to watch old Mike and see if the little woman has any impact on his voting record.

*If you want to know the position of LULAC regarding illegal aliens, here’s a press release from LULAC National President Rosa Rosales on June 8, 2007: “We encourage Congress and the White House to renegotiate a workable bill that unites families, protects human rights, creates an avenue for undocumented immigrants to legalize their status and allows future workers to come here legally with a pathway to permanent residency.” (From the LULAC.org website)

This is important because LULAC is sometimes regarded as moderate and supporting legal immigration only. Not so!
