Excuse me, but you would be better of ousting Mary Bono. At least nobody will miss here. You fail to notice what Drier does for the GOP and other candidates around the country. While this is nice political scapegoating for the sake of ratings, (I know Jon & Ken and every crusade is about ratings as soon as they find something to be pissed off about) it ought to be targetting something worthwhile like MECHA or LA RAZA who are blackmailing one entire political party.

I heard John and Ken last night say that when it comes to illegal immigration issues, Dreier is the worst Republican in Congress. He's even worse than most Rats like Maxine Waters, Teddy The Swimmer, and John Effin Kerry. He deserves to be sacrificed!

One party is already under the influence of la raza etc. The point is to make sure that the other party never has the same happen. This would appear to be the only way to send a message to the GOP that they will understand.

They have not listened to any other arguement so if you threaten their jobs maybe they'll do the right thing to save their own skins.

I don't think you quiet understand. Most all in the GOP have done nothing, stood in silence, some have actually aided and abetted this coast to coast lawlessness. Year after year after year after year, not just the Democrats, but the Republicans as well have all but ignored this crisis.

It's now time for the people to make an example out of one of these politicos, so others may listen, take notice. Smoke his career. Make the example. Send the message.

Do you understand now?

Poor Jon and Ken, they keep thinking up high school pranks to get off on. They have gone too far with this one, as their logic falls apart on inspection of what the
guys in D.C. are working so hard to accomplish. (Check the WSJ editorial of 9/15.) I hate what the wetbacks have done to my state in the last 25 years. I know a lot about the illegals swamping schools and ER's and now we are broken and broke. J & K are just falling on the floor and throwing a tantrum while being hooked on getting ever larger ratings. They have assumed way too much credit for dumping Davis and now have a silly belief that they really can effect the direction of voters. IF I could change things, I would stop banks and the Post Office from wiring money out of the country, without ID verification of citizenship. If we talk endlessly about stopping the demand for illegal drugs, why not look at the supply of money going south, even if it is money from flipping burgers!? NO I.D. = No Money Order.

That is almost word for word what Gray Davis said about John and Ken. He went down to total complete disgrace. J&K were a big factor in his down fall.

high school pranks

I don't think so. The people have had enough. Make the example, send the message. Maybe other politicos will take notice.

Drier had the worst rating of the 15 So Cal Republican delegation on immigration issues. And, if you are familiar with John and Ken, then you should also know that they are targeting Democrat Joe Baca as well.

No proof of citizenship/green card = no job. No job = no money. No money = no money order. Slap a healthy fine on the employers and send them to jail for 30/60/90 days.

You sure do NOT know what's happening here in Los Angeles. If you did you would know that what Dreier is doing to us here is double-crossing us and LYING about his supposed fight against illegal immigration. Far from fighting it, he's a New World Order advocate, and does everything to give the illegals everything. Check his voting record before you make any more statements like that.

Hurray for John and Ken.!! Thank God for them. They're the only ones who are going to get things done around here, and that means "firing" some of these useless congressmen, and Dreier is FIRST on the list.

If our congressmen can be blackmailed by Mecha and LA RAZA, then they damn well deserve it. Since when did we become the door mat for Mexico?

You may want to do something about that.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to support a Bush administration plan to allow the use of Mexican identification cards to open U.S. bank accounts. Dreier voted for this. Just another example of why he is going down, like Gray Davis went down.

Re Dreier v. my comment re money orders; my intent was to
express a surer way to stop illegal immigration. sacrificing either a Dem or a Pub, by hysterically influencing voters, is only temporary - maybe one election.
Whereas, if you stop the incentive to come and then take/send the money away from our economy - we have fixed the original lure. Stopping the flow of money, by
ILLEGALs, out of our economy would help to fix the original problem, i.e., we're going broke supporting the old folks left behind in Mexico. We'd keep more money in circulation and maybe the illegals would stay home and try to fix their country.

Yeah Joe, us peoples have had enuf - ha. This one just
dis-agrees about how to fix the root of the problem
rather than throwing the baby out with the bath water.
And, there is no evidence that Drier is any worse than
any of the other J & K candidates, with regard to
closing the border. Whereas, the job J & K did
on G. Davis had real reasons for the dump - it was
about his budgets - that is, follow the money honey -
just what I want to do with the illegals.

Can we discuss the "WHO" after the election? Ha. The Pols of both parties are dodging the issue, but be sure they are taking note of the voters' anger re the illegals. They will have to do serious planning and why wouldn't they?! Protection their fannies for a Mexican vote in November will be the last time that this issue will be ignored. Since the deficit is still climbing and the terriorist are said to be treking in - it won't be ignored. So letting K & J release some steam causes no harm, except to a better than average Congressman. What we can't know is how the issue works within the future financial relationship with Mexico. If every illegal left tonight, I think I'd be happy. Perhaps Mexico would go into chaos. Would the USA have to come to it's rescue to avoid riots here and the fall of their government?? So maybe you and I have only seen the tip of the berg, when it comes to understanding the whole dynamic, but I trust "W's" people as having a better handle on it than Kerry - and losing a Pub vote in Congress won't persuade the EGOS of other Congressmen that they are not also sacrificable. Is that a word?!
I remind you of the phrase about the perfect being the enemy of the good,, or something like that. J & K are
going for perfect ratings, but it is not a good thing they
are doing.

Can we discuss the "WHO" after the election?

It was a rehtorical question. You are going on about all these scenerios about money orders and I'm trying to get you to wake up; There is no one in Washington who would bother with your suggestion. There isn't even a strong wing in one party. No one will touch it, therefore we the People must make it an issue. If we roll over and placidly accept it, we are failing not only our children, but the spirit the Founders entrusted us with.

So letting K & J release some steam causes no harm, except to a better than average Congressman.

This is just steam, and then its much much more. (and I TOTALLY disagree about the "better than average" crap, Dreier is phoney and an elitist with a worse voting record on this issue then Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and Dennis Kuchinich) This will have no effect in 04, which is good. I want Bush to win, we are in a dangerous time and Kerry is a threat to national security. This WILL have an effect in the 06 Congressional race because it will be, as CA so often is, a shining example to advisors not only in SoCal, but in Colorado, North Carolina, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and on and on. I have family in Indiana, which isn't seeing the kind of invasion those states I mentioned are enduring who is so POed about this I doubt he'll vote next time. Once this election is over, you are going to see this issue come to the forefront, and J&K are going to help in that matter. I have no doubt they are doing this for their own agrandizement. I couldn't care less, I'm not anticapitalist like so many of his critics advance arguements like that, if they make money off this, I say bravo and thanks. Given John's anti social conservative rants I assure you after the sacrafice is over I won't be listening to him, but just as Bush serves my purpose even though I disagree with many things he's done, so does J&K.

J & K are going for perfect ratings, but it is not a good thing they are doing.

I think you made up such a concept as perfect ratings. Clearly their are many MANY closeminded binary Republicans who are turning OFF their show in droves, so that shoots that theory to pieces. Someone who was pandering for a broader cross section would do as so many detractors suggest, whine about the many hardships my community is enduring because of a lack of leadership, and do absolutely nothing about it.

You don't understand something, politicians represent contributors, and they fear the voters. If we give away our one small aspect of power away because we accept the never ending chant "But the Democrats are worse" we have given away our one tiny check and balance to the Cheap Labor Republican contributors. You can rationalize that those Employers know what's best long term, I will not. After Dreier is home in his pjs in 05, neither will campaign managers.

Illegal immigration will have to capture the imagination of GOP voters in California in general in this election cycle as a seminal issue for it to tank Drier in his district. His opponent is third tier without much money. The district has about a 10% GOP bias. The odds that Drier will lose are low, not impossible, but low. In part it will depend on generic GOP strength in House races, and that number has been deteriorating a bit - but again not by enough. I might note that GOP control of the House might be in some danger absent the Texas sixpack - maybe 35% without it, and 10% with it.

The human sacrifice thing might cost Drier a couple of percent. The show and the station station has influence, but it is more limited in cross conflicted situations (not much of that when it was time for Gray Davis to go against Arnold), and Drier's district has lots of middle class Asians and Hispanics who vote GOP but are not attuned to the human sacrifice message.

NO way am I saying any illegals are good for now or the future of our sovernity. What I do think is that now that the millions are here, it takes finess that J & K don't have the depth for, to work through the machanics of deporting and stopping the inflow of illegals.

I think K & J are good, even great at what they do. It's
been fun watching them 'grow up' a little, since I first
followed them around the streets in their San Diego "man in the street" stunts, during the 96 GOP convention.
They are just wrong about trying to take out a vote in
Congress that would support a Bush plan to better the
situation vs. a new Dem congresswoman - who would have to
vote with her coalition - that is if she planned on getting help from them in her next election.

Great idea, but it all ready failed in CA. As an
employer, I had to obtain and keep forms re status in an
employees' file, or face fines.
That law created in the early 90's was directed at day
laborers, but included office workers, etc.
It created a boon in the forged document biz, and not a
few employers paid some fines. It's a forgotten law now
cause it couldn't be implemented.

I give up - you seem to attack to win the battle of one
issue (illegals) rather than see the battle for winning
the war on lots of issues, that help this issue. By that
I mean, Drier is one of our soldiers and needed to keep
our chances of making law that hinders illegals, no matter
how small or long it takes to make the law. Politics being a give and take tug of war, we don't shoot one of our own. Of course I agree on your reasons re Bush must win, we just disagree on whether Bush needs all the Driers he can have for the broader battles to come - and whether J & K have tried to hinder that.
My belief is that politicians do not fear voters.
I believe they mostly think they can find voters who will
believe in them - to the extent that they have the money
or power (Unions, etc.) behind them.
I believe that campaign managers will believe anything
you ask them to, provided you pay them enough.

Not likely, you seem to spout the same narrowminded pep talk for R=good, D=bad in the rest of your post.

you seem to attack to win the battle of one issue (illegals) rather than see the battle for winning the war on lots of issues, that help this issue.

Its 1 seat for crying out loud. Stop being so hysterical.

By that I mean, Drier is one of our soldiers and needed to keep our chances of making law that hinders illegals,

First of all, he's not "our" and there are no "soldiers" in Congress. This illuminates your simple minded binary understanding of the American political process. Did you even look at Dreier's voting record? Not only would he not make a law hindering illegals, he has CONSISTENTLY voted against others' laws that do just that. He is an open borders, Cheap Labor Republican and he couldn't be more opposed to what is in my best interest where he to try.

Politics being a give and take tug of war, we don't shoot one of our own.

Wrong. If there is any tug of war going on, it is between the powerless average American and the elites who donate and control our government. While the GOP is the lesser of two evils and normally on "our" side, on this issue by any objective account, they are working against us. Therefore, they have to be taught a lesson in the only way they listen to, a loss of their personal power. Its only one seat, this is a pruning action of the GOP that is otherwise unchallenged because the Democrats have moved so extremely to the left they have become a permanent minority.

My belief is that politicians do not fear voters.

The hell?

I believe they mostly think they can find voters who will believe in them - to the extent that they have the money or poweraaaaaand why are they trying to find voters again? You not only are contradicting yourself, you make positively NO SENSE whatsoever. I can understand that because as you dig deeper into your position you find there is no logic in voting for Cheap Labor Republicans when the GOP has a 22 seat majority already, and you just start to rant.

I believe that campaign managers will believe anything you ask them to, provided you pay them enough.

There is no "belief" required, there are many businesses giving thousand dollar donations to every Congressman in the Southwest so the cheap labor spigot keeps flowing and no one is prosecuted for employing illegals....you wanna get together a bunch of your anti-J&K Republican "warriors" and out contribute that? Thanks for making my point. Americans have only the ballot box to protect them, and you silly binary knee jerkers aren't helping the average American.

Another thread said the turnout sucked. You guys are delusional if you think a couple of radio jock mouths are going to take out David Drier.

If you weren't concerned, you wouldn't be posting, "Deacon".

Whereas, if you stop the incentive to come and then take/send the money away from our economy - we have fixed the original lure. Stopping the flow of money, by ILLEGALs, out of our economy would help to fix the original problem, i.e., we're going broke supporting the old folks left behind in Mexico.

Even with the fire to Dreier's toes, he still voted to do exactly what you don't want: to make it easier for people to send money out of the country using matricular cards. I've defended my congressman, David Dreier, on here many, many, many times. In the primary I voted for Soto, and in the general, unless Soto comes back as a write in, I'm voting for the lady with the (D) after her name.

[...]Drier's district has lots of middle class Asians and Hispanics who vote GOP but are not attuned to the human sacrifice message.

It's Dreier. I know, it's an annoyingly hard name. Had to train myself to type it right. Wish the spell check had politician names in it. As for immigrant Asians and Hispanics, most of those in his district not only came here legally, but hate those who break the laws and come here. They're the ones who feel it most directly, from the reactions of people angry at the illegals which rubs onto them, from their kids who are threatened by the illegal gang members, from the illegal Asians who peddle the drugs, from the illegal Hispanics who drive down house values and school quality.

They're the ones who are most angry at school districts which try to teach their kids in Spanish or Mandarin whereas they use English in the home. If their attention comes to focus on Dreier for how he votes, they will flock in droves just to nail him to the wall.

We really need a second choice as a write in for the general election, and we need it now. I don't like voting for democrats, but that's my sole choice at the moment to make a difference.

David Dreier could care less if he's voted out of office. That's why he's so arrogant. At his website you'll find out that he's still in his family's business in Kansas City, Missouri. IOW he's loaded!
