A number of years ago, McCain supported a bill that would have effectively banned gun shows.
Welcome to the club. John McCain parachutes in here, long enough to be able to tell everyone he is from a border state, then catches the next flight out. He never hesitates to tell those of us who live on the border that we don't know what we're talking about, when it comes to border issues.
Very well stated - thank you!
Kid, what do you expect? Are we supposed to love Mexico even though they encourage their own citizens to venture el norte illegally so they don’t have to take care of them or address the corruption that exists there; the country that calls us xenophobic, racist, bigots merely because we want our laws obeyed and enforced; the country that is constantly meddling in US politics via their Mexican consuls?
Why did McCain have to acknowledge Hispanic men and women have served and died for our country? Everyone knows that, yet he felt it important to point it out in this closed door meeting. Why? Because he’s pandering to the RACIAL BIASES he expected to exist in that room, and he wasn’t disappointed. Everyone should find that shameful, IMO. AMERICAN men and women have served and died for this country and they should all be honored at all times without compartmentalizing their honorable deeds to pat one race or ethnicity on the back to the exclusion of all others. It’s quite sickening if you ask me.
Thank you, anti-liberal! My condolences for your kitty.
Thanks, but it was a while back and a second has passed since. I still have one left and she's got a lot of life left in her. :^)
I haven't taken the time to work on that profile page since I first set it up, so thanks also for reminding me...
I dont believe the issue is Hispanics, the problem is ILLEGALS, ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS, the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, and other SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. Since the ILLEGALS infamous L.A. march displaying their foreign flags demanding their rights United States citizens are distrustful of any organized protest demanding anything. The situation will remain this way until our National Borders are secured and our Immigration Laws are Enforced. Our Elitist Politicians at the demand of their Elitist Political Contributors, Chamber of Commerce, and other Special Interest Groups will not allow the problem to be solved for fear of losing a dollar.
Just follow the money my friend. The “political contributors” will get their “cheap labor” and not have to furnish any “benefits” because all the “benefits” for the ILLEGALS will be furnished by the taxpayers enforced and implemented by “our politicians” and their “men”(see Johnny Satan)!!
The point is not if they are good or hardworking people, the point being they are here illegally! They do drive down our wages and take from the United States treasury for the benefit of the very few(ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS see ROBERT CAMP) who privatize the profits for themselves at the expense of the vast majority.
OH well...as I’ve said many times....McCain is not perfect...but it’s an election...2 guys running...and ones a communist. Kind of simplifies the whole thing doesn’t it?
I just ran across your thread from Malkin’s site
What’s McCain doing? Most Hispanics are going to vote for the Obamanation, not McCain.
But in any case - you're welcome!
I was thanking you for the link on this thread to your thread from Michelle's site
Double :>) :>)
: > )
Well, this thread can use the bumps!
Good news about chicagolady being on TV Mon morning!
I couldn’t agree with you more, lccat, the problem is not Hispanics - it’s illegal aliens who come from all around the world, unscrupulous employers, a government that condones law-breaking because those who can give them large contributions can make an extra buck, and special interest groups whose very existence depend on keeping a large “victimized” community to coddle and keep angry.
I completely agree with your post in its entirety.
Having said all of that and pointing out that the problem is NOT Hispanics, I must also point out that anyone who speaks out against illegal immigration is IMMEDIATELY accused of being racist against “brown-skinned Hispanics/Latinos” by....not illegal alien Chinese, Russians, Africans, Korean, etc.....but by Hispanics/Latinos. It isn’t that I am “against” Hispanics, it’s that they are always the ones to get in my face, call me a racist simply because I want our laws enforced and our borders closed, while they demand that our laws continue to be ignored for the sake of THEIR own kind. Racism is definitely a part of this issue - it just happens to exist in those groups, the most vocal of which are Hispanic/Latino, who are calling everyone else a racist.
Support Bush? The screwball "Mission Accomplished" idiot that is REALLY the traitor destroying the Republican party because he (as the case with his "Read My Lips" old man before him who somehow was able to pull a stalemate out of overwelming victory) is the nincompoop that cannot figure out how to win a war against a third-rate country. I wouldn't support Bush even if his Crawford ranch was being taken over by Mexican MS-13 youth gangs and he found himself having to pay extortion money just to live in one of the barns.
That’s because you have been kicked to the curb.
