Immigrant group balks
at Obama reform wording

Yahoo! News, by Liz Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/14/2012 10:26:00 PM

An advocacy group for young immigrants expressed concern Wednesday after President Barack Obama, at his first press conference in months, said he would support "a pathway for legal status" for those living in the country illegally. That Obama used the phrase "legal status" instead of "citizenship" raised alarm bells for some deep in the weeds of immigration advocacy, since some more conservative immigration reformers think the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally should be given legal status but not the opportunity to become citizens. "He looked like he sidestepped around

Didn´t they get the message? You have to keep voting Democrat for 40 years, then you´ll get some crumbs. By that time you´ll forget why you are voting Democrat in the first place.

Above posters appear to think that BHO is cheating his natural constituency. Nope. He´s cheating Americans.

Sounds like: They get to stay, they get to work. They get all the modern welfare state goodies. OK, they don´t get to vote, but once they ´retire´ they likely get SS and Medicare. This sounds like a good deal to me and if I were an illegal and could figure out a way to vote - I´d vote Dem until I died and even after that.

Meanwhile low skilled blacks and whites get screwed. But who cares about them?

The Republicans should never go along with any liberal Democrat amnesty that eventually grants 12-20 million illegal aliens US voting rights. If the Republicans do that they will be handing the liberal Democrats many millions of socialist oriented foreign born voters in the coming years and committing long-term political suicide.

Any amnesty should be limited to a deferred action status with a US work permit that must be extended from time to time. If those aliens want to apply for permanent resident status they should have to meet the same requirements that legal immigrants must meet when they apply for an immigrant visa to come to he USA. That´s only fair.

These are the ingrates to whom the GOP is supposed to grovel? How many votes do you think they will grant in return for another amnesty? My guess is zero.

Oh, you mean this is going the way of Ohiowans` food stamp cuts? Wait till unemployment starts running it´s term starting en mass in December. Right before Christmas. They are already preparing a bill to extend it. Will they or won´t they? The truth will bear out in coming days. It was timed perfectly, if Romney won, to test the Republican mettle. But Obama now has no need to buy votes. It should be interesting.

NO citizenship. US laws on immigration allow the newly minted citizen to also import everyone they call family. The US population will immediately rise by 100,000,000. No doubt all will collect welfare.

Most believe there are some limitations to what he can do "with a stroke of his pen". Conferring citizenship on those who have come here illegally is one of them.

There is a process.

Was reading about Lebanon yesterday. Although they have allowed Palestinian refugees into their country, they have not given them many rights - such as property ownership. As I recall they cannot attend the country´s schools. They do not have the benefits that citizenship confers. The Christian Lebanese do not want the Muslims to take over their country and its institutions.

A college student visiting Colorado for spring break fell to his death after eating marijuana cookies in what´s believed to be the first publicized fatality linked to pot since its legalized sale in January. Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old exchange student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., had just eaten the pot-laced treats with friends last month when he became "very agitated and upset" and ran off a fourth floor hotel balcony, according to the Denver Coroner´s Office. Three of Thamba´s friends, who said it was the first time any of them had consumed marijuana, said one of them had purchased

Russia Tightens Pressure on
Ukraine With Rise in Gas Price

MOSCOW — Even as American and Russian diplomats groped toward a settlement that would halt further Russian military intervention in Ukraine, Gazprom, the Russian energy company, stepped up the economic pressure on Tuesday by sharply raising the price it charges for natural gas. Gazprom, a state-controlled gas exporter, raised the price to $385 for 1,000 cubic meters of gas, the standard measure used in gas deals in Europe, from $268, an increase of 44 percent. The price increase follows what analysts say is a long practice at Gazprom of punitive pricing for countries in the former Soviet Union and Eastern

Russia set out a series of tough conditions on Sunday night for agreeing a diplomatic solution to the crisis over its annexation of Crimea, demanding that the US and its European partners accept its proposal that ethnic Russian regions of eastern and southern Ukraine be given extensive autonomous powers independent of Kiev. Emergency talks between Sergei Lavrov, Russia´s foreign minister, and John Kerry, the US secretary of state, got under way at the Russian ambassador´s residence in Paris after a day in which tensions over Ukraine deepened appreciably. Neither man made any substantive comment before the talks began. Suggesting it

The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest rulers and a close ally of Britain, will this week oversee his country’s transition to a system of Islamic law with punishments that include flogging, the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death. The 67-year-old absolute monarch declared last year that he wanted to introduce a full sharia system in his oil-rich nation and warned critics who took to social media sites to complain that they could be prosecuted using the new laws. The decision to introduce sharia and reintroduce the death penalty has been condemned by NGOs and legal rights

Kiev, Ukraine -- Both Kiev and Washington say that Russian forces are massing in large numbers near Ukraine´s eastern border -- and that they represent a threat to Ukraine and potentially to other former Soviet states. It´s hard to pin down an exact figure, amid a welter of different views, but the U.S. and Ukraine agree the number of Russian soldiers present is rising fast. (Snip) The 30,000-plus troops on the border are "significantly more" than what is needed for the "exercises" Russia says it has been conducting, and there is no sign they are making any move to return

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country.

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Friday said Russia´s takeover of Crimea showed off its military prowess, as his defence minister reported that the Russian flag was now flying over all military sites on the Black Sea peninsula. In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War. "The recent events in Crimea were a serious test," Putin was shown on state television as saying in an echoing

And many of the participants are carrying flowers to lay at the Freedom Monument, Latvia´s symbol of national independence.

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity. The president’s speech – the format Mr. Obama has favored for delivering big messages in foreign places – came at the end of a day during which the American leader visited for the first time two pillars of trans-Atlantic relations: NATO headquarters and

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
