Democrats are the roadblock
to immigration reform

San Diego – After Latino voters helped re-elect President Obama — delivering the battleground states of Nevada and Colorado, and contributing to the victories in Florida and Virginia — a consensus quickly emerged among pundits and political observers that the quid pro quo would include comprehensive immigration reform.

Food for thought anyway. Explains a bit why illegal immigration was a much bigger problem under GOP´s Bush than under BJ Clinton. The Dems natural constitutions are (or were) the lower paid workers who are threatened most by a flood of unskilled immigrants - legal or not.
In contrast for the GOP, it was always about getting cheap labor. Students of American history probably know that the political party most representing business interests at any given time in our history were the ones most likely to push for more immigration (say the Irish in the late 1800s.)

I wanted to add that now that the GOP contains so many ´Reagan Democrats´, the cheap labor branch of the GOP has to be a lot sneakier in how they go about getting their beloved cheap labor. W was pretty sneaky but not sneaky enough, Jeb would be sneakier.

When you talk to the liberal Democrats and their allies, the very liberal ethnic and immigrant immigration groups about an earned legalization program for illegal aliens who have been here "many" years, you find that they actually define that qualification as covering just about any illegal alien who "claims" to have been here for two years.

If is the same with President Obama´s administrative "DREAM" amnesty, where it was declared that only illegal aliens who graduated from a US high school and were pursuing higher education, or who served in the military were qualified, but when you look closer the real standard for that qualification is only a GED certificate that can be obtained in the Spanish language.

The Republicans would have to be nuts to go along with any liberal Democrat amnesty with a "path to citizenship" that would be designed to provide the Democrats with many millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead. If that happened, within a decade the alien population would double, as the legalized aliens brought in millions of their foreign spouses, children,foreign parents, and siblings under the family reunification provisions that are sure to be included in any liberal Democrat amnesty.

The result of all that would be long-term political suicide for the Republicans.

Dems are all about dividing people into groups, e.g., Latinos, Blacks, Gays, Women, etc. It`s all about divide and conquer. Create a `constituency` an own them. Take everyone for yourself, except `old white men`, and give them to the GOP. Eventually, that gives them most of the population and one party rule.

But with the help of the leftist media and the Stupid Party they will successfully blame it on the Republicans. A ´Palinized´ Rubio seems to be the target of choice.

Where has the expectation of personal integrity of each individual citizen gone with regard to our freedom to think, to make our own informed choices and be the responsible & accountable citizens upon which our freedom relies? We actually grew up hearing & learning about our personal responsibilities as Liberty´s participants as envisioned by the Founders who secured our precious Rights in the U.S. Constitution. These days more is speculated by pols & written about by lsm pundits about some recent sort of fractured America´s voting blocks. Who, ´fractured,´ us?!!

This is not a positive trend for the USA´s Constitutional principles conditional upon the vital importance of each individual´s PERSONAL responsibilities as a responsible human being & citizen of America the Beautiful. Is individual accountability AND responsibility being usurped this new century by fracturing, group-think lefty pols, community agitators and the eager to stir divisivness lsm? ...More´s the pity.

Who today understands and, MORE than shifty politics de jeur, cherishes the USA´s Constitutional principles regarding each individual´s personal Rights, along with each one´s individual responsibilities as a citizen of the USA, for Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness and Justice for All?

Leaders of any, ´special interest,´ group who continue seeking to divide American citizens have wrong priorities and are doing the country no good.

Basically it´s the old lib strategy of not solving the problem in order to use it to continue bashing the GOP. Nothing new here.

in the early 70´s I was talking to a city cop and fe informed me that at that time the cops were paid a bounty of $25 for every "illegal immigrant" (substituted for the now deemed derogatory term for someone whose posterior side is drippingly moist) that they apprehended and turned over to immigration for deportation. In 1972, 25 bucks was a nice piece of change for a cop making around 10 grand per year. I dare ´em to try that now.

Democrats never reform anything. The only thing Democrats do is cause the problem in the first place, Democrats only create, they never solve.

St. Lucie County canvassing board

West-Murphy race

FORT PIERCE -— A county canvassing board on Friday ordered a recount of early-voting ballots in the race between U.S. Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy, hours after a judge declined to do the same. The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board voted 2-to-1 late Friday in favor of the move in the 18th Congressional District contest, in which Murphy is the unofficial victor. A series of tabulation errors by the county has raised suspicion among West´s campaign and its supporters and appeared to motivate the board´s favorable vote.

Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they’ve persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas. Democrats haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They changed the people. More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points — the widest margin since 1984. But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate.

Sean Hannity said Thursday he has “evolved” on immigration and now supports a “pathway to citizenship.” Hannity told his radio listeners Thursday afternoon that the United States needs to “get rid of the immigration issue altogether.” “It’s simple to me to fix it,” Hannity said. “I think you control the border first. You create a pathway for those people that are here — you don’t say you’ve got to go home. And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because, you know what, it’s got to be resolved.

Speaker John Boehner said Thursday he was "confident" Republicans could agree to a comprehensive immigration bill. Boehner (R-Ohio) made the comment in an interview with ABC News released two days after President Obama's decisive reelection victory over Mitt Romney. Obama's win was fueled by Hispanic voters, who made up a larger portion of the electorate than they did four years ago and voted overwhelmingly for Obama. The president won Latino voters by 44 points, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. The defeat and those figures have triggered a round of soul-searching by

Michigan turns lights out on
proposed renewable energy mandate

Michigan voters pulled the plug on a proposed constitutional amendment that would have required Michigan's utilities to provide 25 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025. With most precincts reporting, 63 percent of voters opposed the measure.(snip)Proposal 3 represented a doubling-down on renewable energy after state legislators voted in 2008 to reach a 15 percent standard by 2015. Those backing the ballot measure claimed the new standard would not only accelerate Michigan's move away from environmentally-damaging fossil fuels, but create jobs and investment from the construction and maintenance of wind turbines.

Arkansas Republicans on Tuesday night took control of at least one chamber of the state legislature and captured all of the state's congressional seats for the first time since Reconstruction. Republicans took the majority in the state Senate and will either have a one seat majority or be tied with Democrats in the state House of Representatives, according to election returns. For decades, Arkansas has been a rare dot of Democratic blue amid Republican red across the legislatures of the South. Until Tuesday's elections, it was the only state in the South where both chambers of the legislature were controlled by Democrats.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes. The 71-year-old argued that he was happy to do the less glamorous tasks- like handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai- but only at a price. ‘When the president asked me what portfolio did I want, I said, “Base it on what you want of me to help you

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins. She quoted a 2013 tax guide in which the IRS stated: “If you find and keep property that does not belong to you that has been lost or

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
