...Charlie is a fruitcake and has little to do w/ it, except spend the dividends of his brother's labor. From Wichita, home of Koch HQ; they're (well, Charlie that is) quite the talk of the town, often!
Do your own research and see the similarities and differences that exist among these three entities. The Koch Brothers are among the biggest financial backers of the extreme right. Compare the goals of the Tea Party and the John Birch Society.
emphasizing "legal" Hispanic vote. Are you implying that an illegal Hispanic vote exists? I'm shocked!!!
Anyways, both Alabama and Georgia now require employers to challenge their employees through the use of E-Verify. So if they get fouled up here or in Alabama they can always go to Mexifornia.
And a "majority of Americans"; really???? Can you cite this?
Glad you found it interesting.

Not at all. Just that some people categorize all Hispanic looking people as 'illegal'. You really seem to have a problem with 'browns' in California. Is that why you're in Georgia? More comfortable with 'blacks'? Contrary to the belief of some, the majority of Americans do not think with the same attitude of those who feel 'comfortable' in the south. One doesn't have to 'cite' anything - it is quite apparent in customs and politics what the majority of Americans feel in any given situation. Unfortunately some people who are not familiar with American history feel that 'racism' is only in the southern region of the United States. We all know that is not the truth - it's just that ignorance regarding the treatment of fellow humans was legal in the south. The south should be used as a showcase of what America has become regarding race relations. . . and Fayette County has overcome a history of plantation existence and is now an example of peaceful and respectful co-existence between ‘blacks’ and ‘whites’. Why? Because the citizens of this county do not have a great disparity in education, income, or religion. I can cite this. Also, 16% of the businesses in Fayette County are black-owned. WOW! (Very few people care – what is important to customers is quality service and product.) Just thought that was an interesting statistic.
"You really seem to have a problem with 'browns' in California. Is that why you're in Georgia? More comfortable with 'blacks'?"
Now really, is that necessary???? Do you not think that there are those of us "citizens" that just want this country to enforce its immigration laws. Can we not expressed that without dragging in the issue of the "browns"?
If I misunderstood your comment about 'Mexicalifornia', I apologize. California was part of Mexico and many of the first Californians were Mexican. It is true that illegal immigration has 'browned' California. You and I both know that they don't cross the border to 'sit'. California has benefitted from cheap Mexican and Asian labor (illegals). Many Hispanics in California have been 'citizen's' since California became a state. Laws like those proposed in Georgia put Americans who appear Hispanic at a disadvantage based on their skin color. Blacks who were 'free' experienced the same disadvantage before slavery was outlawed.
We must, because I don't see how confirming one's immigration status puts them at a disadvantage, unless they're here illegally. Oh, and Mexican & Asian laborers benefit from HAVING labor to do, something THEIR countries have failed to provide. As an added benefit, thanks to the 'Anchor Law', their spawn birthed here get to become citizens! No 'benefit' there, DM; just another opportunity to USE the USA. REPEAL THE ANCHOR LAW!
their spawn birthed here
That is disgusting! Do your words actually represent your respect for 'humans'? Or are only 'certain' people considered 'human'? Don't answer. I won't.
...as we see again if Dems don't get what they want they resort to name-calling, like Lion. I guess it's hard to swallow the majority's view when you're in the minority, even when legally voted on & enacted; throwing a fit must be genetic. I would challenge your statement that GA, AZ, "etc. are viewed by the MAJORITY of Americans". States bearing the burden of the Fed. gov't's failure to stem the flood of illegal ALIENS (not immigrants) are simply asserting their right, and need, to do what the Feds have failed to do, esp. in these hard economic times. Even many blood-sucking Mexican have ran back home in the past couple of years as the cash cow starting drying up.
I'd vote for Perry if he'd keep his promise to enter Mexico to deal w/ the gangs. Heck, I'd volunteer if he'd INVADE that POS country and make it our 51st state secure our border! La muerte en México!
La muerte en Mexico???? Now that's really encouraging to Americans who still have relatives in Mexico. Death to England? Death to Germany? Death to Italy? Come on now. How about LIFE AND FREEDOM IN THE US FOR ALL LEGAL CITIZENS!!??
...they could have those relatives living in the safe, less-drug-cartel-infested, better-governed 51st US state of New New Mexico, or maybe South Texas, or just use one of the names they already have there! We'd have a more controlled southern border, a new source of oil & minerals, and 11 million of their brethern could go back and re-populate their former homeland! We'd end the US-MX 'fence' debate, too! Imagine the boost to the US Catholic Church population! Sounds like a win for everybody!
Those cartels can THINK they're bad-ass, at least until the Apaches (hey, what a coincidence!), M1A2 Abrams, Bradley FV's, Paldin FA, and the 82nd Airborne show up - they'll scatter like cucarachas!!
You have to think outside the box sometimes; this endless back-and-forth about illegal aliens has gone on long enough, just like the murderous cartels of the uber-corrupt Mexican nation. Just a few thoughts, anyway...
ThInking outside the box is fine as long as it doesn't involve WAR! I don't feel you represent the majority of conservative thought in this country. Thanks for sharing - we know where you stand. Cucarachas were here before 'mankind'. After we follow your solution, cucarachas will still be here. Let's give Americans an opportunity to work, and let the illegals go home. No need to continue to kill anyone- and the drug cartel would not be bothered with the US if there was no market for their product.
...for less of a reason. We've been invaded by Mexicans to a much greater extent than the Japanese ever achieved, and we took THAT fight to them - an ocean away - so why not those at our back door? We eliminate the threat, then take over the drug production, legalize it, then use the revenue to pay for this and any future wars and/or social programs. The surplus of wealth generated by this revenue can be spread by the Federal government to the poor, who can in turn use it to purchase drugs. This will also produce many spoon-ready jobs in the US due to the new businesses in this now-legal market & collateral Federal departments to manage it. It will significantly improve the job market for those who want to work, and conversely provide support for those who don't. Sounds like a perfect future for America to me, that satisfies both sides of the aisle - legalizing drugs and growing the Federal gov't for the left, and growing business opportunities for the right...we just need politicians with the hutzpah to make the change - yes, we can.
Your limited knowledge is apparent. #1. There are legal Mexican and Japanese Americans in our country. We are discussing ILLEGALS - not the 'heritage' of our fellow Americans. #2. I feel your heart is in the right place, just your conscious or unconscious prejudices come out in your narrative. #3. Certain elements of the immigration law proposed by some states is based on the APPEARANCE of a human. (In the days of slavery - a 'black' person who may have been 'free', could be 'collected' by slave traders based on the color of their skin. Have a nice day.
...the illegal aliens. I'll try to be more specific for you in the future. As for the Japanese, it was a comparison to how they TRIED to invade us; the ILLEGAL Mexican aliens have achieved inroads to OUR nation the Japs never dreamed of - mainly due to Washington's failure(s)! Many LEGAL AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS of Mexican descent are as disgusted by the invaders as us more long-term immigrants who've become citizens; I would hope they would fight along side of their adopted nation during the war! As for appearances, that's really too bad - I'll show the police my DL, SS Card, whatever, if they have concerns as to my legally being here; its not hard to do, and not invasive to me - just not a problem - unless you're here illegally.
What part of the word "illegal" in "illegal alien" do you not understand. Have you been sniffing glue or .... what?
And you never did call me. C'mon kevin, give me a call and I will tell you exactly how I feel - (770)908-7383.
If you don't have the cajones to do that, then take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marchin' shoes. Shake it off. Stop complainin', stop grumblin', stop cryin'.
Each time you have passed. You will have future opportunities. You will pass. If you need attention, try Eharmony.

I am a very busy man and have much more important things to do than go to wittle kevvy's koffee klatch to meet with an obviously maladjusted, mentally unstable, self-important hack. (pun intended)
I am a very busy man and have much more important things to do
Not too busy to post your phone number in a blog! What a man!!
He's very busy trolling the bottom feeding websites searching for something someone else has posted about Obama. It's a full time job for him.
Google his phone number. It'll tell you a lot about him. Nothing you diidn't already know though.
You are a very busy man who has been begging a "maladjusted, mentally unstable, self-important" blogger to call you.......... Nah. I think you're ashamed of your often ridiculous blogs and comments centered around a singular "I hate the President" theme.. I understand. If I had to defend half of what you say I'd never want a name placed with my face either. Your secret is safe with us. Now, I'm sure you have important stuff to get back to :-D. Match.com? Zooks? Adultfriendfinder?
Dems in panic mode as ABO wins another poll! http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article/587521/201110100805/51-... -GP
According to Rasmussen:
President Obama leads most of the current GOP hopefuls aside from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is not running, and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who he’s essentially tied with. For a complete listing of all the most current matchups, click here.
Herman Cains positive intensity is rising off the charts while Obama's heads down like an Aspen ski slope!
Obama has a billion dollars and Herman Cain has like 3 cents! Personally I have never donated before in a Presidential election but have this time and I am sure I am not alone. Watch what happens now that the independents and the rest of our center-right country start to believe Herman Cain Can Win!
I don't wish Herman Cain ill - and respect his hard work and accomplishments. . .and I applaud the Republican Party for giving his solutions credence. Remember - it's only the Republicans voting. Obama is still tied with Romney according to the last Rasmussen poll. We'll see. A lot depends on the debate tonight.
Another poll http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2011/10/12/poll-her... -GP
Debate tonight on Bloomberg at 8pm!
While Perry and Romney mud wrestle on the side of the road to the nomination Herman Cain drives by! http://americanresearchgroup.com/ -GP
In October of 2007, Guliani and Thompson were fighting it out to meet the Dems frontrunner - Clinton. Stuff happens. Gonna happen this time too.
That being said, Cain is the one candidate who will always look good in the debates because he is so genuine and usually stays away from the attack nonsense.
Robert, there are going to be a lot of early primaries, the question is can Cain keep building momentum, who knows.
On a side note a birdie told me Herman has a big surprise for Romney tonight, not sure I like that tactic, IMO he would be better served to stay away from the "mud wrestling" that is going on between Romney and Perry.
Herman Cain, America's First Black President? Time will tell. -GP
meeting with Obama about Romneycare's structure and effectiveness (or lack thereof) and Romney himself was not there. I don't think that's very important and I hope Cain stays away from that stuff. He has so far, but something gets into these people the closer they get to having power and they don't act normal.
So Belafonte says Cain was "fortunate" and "slipped through when someone blinked"--what a dirtbag--wonder how he "slipped through"??
...who give a f^*< about what Harry Belefonte thinks? I wonder what LeAnn Rimes feels about all this??!! - or Don Rickles, for that matter (although that'd probably be pretty funny!).
This mental midget also loves Castro and Chavez, thinks Bush is a terrorist, and denounced both Colin Powell and Condi Rice as "house slaves." "Dirtbag" is too nice of a word.
If Cain continues his upward spiral, do you think he will be nominated to represent the Republican Party?
The Republican Party does not want to win badly enough to break ranks with the religious right who want to prevent women from having abortions, gays from having marriages and all the other meddlesome social issues they cling to that have absolutely nothing to do with running the country. Cain has shown that he will not pay attention to the the far right, he's out to fix the country economically and that is his only focus. He also hasn't been elected to anything before and he is certainly not the next old white guy standing in line whose turn it is to be President, which is another of the Republican Party's standards. Cain's only foray into social issues was stating that he wouldn't have a Muslim in his Cabinet (nor would I), but that didn't work out very well for him.
I would bet that Cain could win every single debate and be the frontrunner in all the polls the week of the convention and the stupid Republican establishment would try to divert him to the VP slot. Of course he won't be the frontrunner by then because the big money Republicans will go after him with a vengeance as he gets into the top tier. Because of the almost constant polling that goes on, we tend to forget that the real kingmakers are the Republican (and Democrat) fund raisers, donors and party insiders who really control things. We the people will get to vote on whoever they decide to shove in front of us.
Too much truth! (And people wonder why minorities don't embrace the Republican Party)
