Botching Immigration Again
National Review Online, by Gov. Bobby Jindal

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 7/10/2013 12:38:57 AM

As the son of immigrants to this country, and as a student of American history, I’m an unapologetic advocate for immigration. I believe immigration is crucial for the health and growth of our nation. That’s why it’s so troublesome to see Washington in the process of botching immigration reform for the umpteenth time. Across the country, we see the ramifications of the broken status quo. Reform is necessary for the future health of the economy and to ensure our border’s security. Business owners are sick and tired of struggling under the current system to make ends meet

If no immigrant were ever allowed to vote, would any politician care ?

Many of those here and coming here only want welfare, not jobs. How many parents of anchor babies get married and eliminate the gravy train ?

With so many foreigners hating US, why do they keep coming here ? Everyone cannot live in this country because too few work and pay taxes.

Remember how France got into such a mess ?
They wanted workers to pay into their pension fund. How´s that working out ?

I agree with Jindal that it is being botched again.

But, one thing bothers me. It seems every politian has to declare himself in favor of legal immigration. Why? Does a nation of more than 300 million need more people?

What #3 said. I would prefer a ten year hiatus on legal immigration and then clearly-demarcated criteria for quality immigrants once it resumes.

Only a dweeb would regard legalizing illegal immigration by the poorest, least productive and least educated segment of a neighboring country as productive and good for our country.

Some of you apparently didn´t read the complete article. Jindal separates "legalization", meaning a green card, naturalization, guest worker, granting a legal permit to be here, but well short of citizenship. Then he addresses citizenship in a way most of us can agree, only applying after meeting stringent requirements and with no jump ahead of those already having applied.

Former President Vicente Fox of Mexico, back during the second Bush era, used to visit the USA and propose a solution to the dilemma of Mexican irregular migrants (illegal aliens) who are working in the USA. Fox used to say that those Mexicans are happy being Mexicans and are not asking to be made US citizens, and that all they want is to be given a legal immigration status so that they can live and work in the USA with dignity, and be able to travel back and forth between Mexico and the USA. It is only the liberal Democrats who want to make them all US citizens, as they know that the vast majority of those poor and generally uneducated Mexicans can easily be made Democrat voters by promises of all sorts of new rights, "free" healthcare, and access to an expanded US social welfare network.

The most important enforcement aspect of immigration reform, before any illegal alien is granted amnesty, is an up and running effective mandatory electronic e-verify type employee verification system that employers must use when they hire anyone, unpinned by a modern high-tech social security card bearing a digitized photograph, and having instant electronic verification ability. Then employers will know that the card is not being used by an imposter, and that the card is valid. Such a system, along with effective enforcement, would keep most illegal aliens out of US jobs. Without the possibility of getting a US job, most future potential illegal aliens would not come here.

Legal immigrants improve this country and have been doing so since before we became an independent country.

I would agree with all that Gov. Bobby Jindal suggests, with just two small additional requirements.

1) Every one must refer to all persons in this country without prior permission (immigrant visa) a criminal alien...not some wishy-washy phrase to deny they are acting against the law.

2) Have every person already waiting for a visa be in this country, with no backlog in the official immigration system whatsoever before a single criminal alien is given the gift of amnesty.

Any "path to citizenship" that does not include a) starting (signing up) in their home country and/or b) serious jail time for breaking any of our laws is a form of amnesty!

11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord    Original Article

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values. Why is

Why a Sebelius Senate Run
Could Help Republicans
National Journal, by Sarah Mimms    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 6:53:38 AM     Post Reply
With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

Jeb Bush’s optimism school
Washingotn Post, by E.J. Dionne JR    Original Article

The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry
is ‘Obama’s economy’
New York Post, by Charles Gasparino    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/16/2014 11:56:10 PM     Post Reply
If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

Jeb Bush’s wife, family
issues key to 2016

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

Romney Plugs Establishment
Candidate in Key GOP Primary

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

Virginians: Before you go to the polls in November to elect a U.S. senator, there is a very real and terrifying fact you simply must know about Ed Gillespie. No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W. Bush’s White House (he did), ran the Republican National Committee (that too) and has said he was “torn” between rooting for the Redskins and the Eagles (shudder). It’s far more sinister than that. He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
