I was lucky enough to be invited to join a press conference on Monday morning and meet the one and only Congressman Tom Tancredo and Jim Oberweis yesterday at the Palmer House Hilton.
For all you Immigration ping list folks out there, both were gentleman, Very approachable, very appreciative.
Jim Oberweis Rep Candidate for the Illinois Senate seat had and unusual way about himself, he is not a Politician, and said so himself. He is a businessman, for those of you who do not know he owns Oberweis Dairy. It was very refreshing to hear both of them speak.
Congressman Tancredo said it the best. What is happening in America is like the story of the frog who was put in a pot of water. The frog does not feel that anything is wrong, everything seems fine. As the water heats up little by little he has no idea that he is going to be history. The change goes unnoticed, but is fatal.
The problem with this Senate race , maybe like many others. Low voter turn out is expected. Hopefully folks will get sick of losing their jobs to Illegals who will except lower pay.And it is also a wave in Tech jobs, they are being taken over by foreign workers.
Hopefully the people of Illinois will be outraged that they are now expected to foot the bill for college education for Illegal Immigrants, which the law makers voted into law last year.
Interestingly enough one of the other Ill Senate candidates was one of the law makers who voted it in. Steve Rauschenberger Senate Candidate voted that the people of Illinois should pay for the education of Illegal aliens.
The only bone that folks keep throwing around to bash Jim Oberweis with is that he made a "Taliban statement" In a Illinois Leader Interview he explained his "Media Gone Wild" Statement......
IL: I have some questions that have been circulating, and ones to which you deserve the opportunity to respond. It goes back to this comment, the so-called Taliban comment that suggested prolifers were like the Taliban on a radio show. Did you say this?
OBERWEIS: Absolutely false. That is not what happened. That is what I was referring to earlier, when I said I started with the statement, I am prolife . . . and mentioned the Taliban as my concern about government expressing too large of a role in our lives. So, you know, Ive answered that a dozen times, or more than that.
IL: So youre saying it was pulled out of context, at a very volatile time, when it would have been interpreted as the ultimate insult. . .
OBERWEIS: I will tell you that the chain of events was started when the quote was sent to the New York Catholic League. They believed what they were told - which was not accurate. When I explained what had happened, they sent a letter back saying that they found it to be very open and forthright, characteristics that would go a long way to the U.S. Senate. Of course, those comments got printed on page 16 of the paper.
IL: Are you Catholic?
I am a Mexican American woman folks, I love America and have been paying taxes since I was 16. I realize my futher is dim. I read a statement that said it well.............
The Mexican Elite do not want to pay taxes. Do not believe the Mexican Propaganda you hear. Mexico is a wealthy country with plenty of money to build their infrastucture and educate it's people. But the Mexican Elite find it easier to export poverty to the United States and let the American Taxpayer foot the bill.
I asked my dad and he said that statement is absolutely true. Taxes are next to nothing in Mexico.
You know what they say....If you are not OUTRAGED you are not paying attention.
Got some friends or relatives in Illinois? Shake their cage, tell them to get out and vote! Tell them that Oberweis has the courage to take the "Unpopular" stand against Illegal Aliens,
The job they save maybe their own!!
I am glad that Jim Oberweis is looking out for Mexican Americans like me who are being taxed to death and who are being asked to celebrate Crimminal Activity...called Irresponsilbe Mass Immigration.
Right now I'm torn between Oberweiss and Kathuria. One things for sure, I am not voting for Ryan.
Back to supporting one of only two pro-abortion candidates in the Illinois Senate race.
Back to supporting Taliban Jim Oberweis who all of a sudden realized he wasn't a pro-abortion moderate, no, he's a pro-life conservative. Just in time for his run for US Senate!
Back to support Taliban Jim Oberweis, who all of a sudden realized he was against illegal immigration! Sure, he never cared about it before, but he looked at all the suckers that could be had and said, why not? It's not like he actually believes anything he says, so why not sucker some conservatives into supporting him?
Besides, for all his 'conservative' campaign lit, he isn't IMO.
Ryan is a member of the evil ryan clan, that is an off shoot of the daley mob.
Georgie isn't in jail today because fitzgerald has been pulled to DC to investigate the CIA leak.
Never underestimate the daley mob and its clout.
