Herman Cain's immigration plan includes moats with alligators
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain (jokingly) tells a crowd in Council Bluffs, IA that his immigration plan would include moats with alligators.
The NY Slimes are making it into something that it's not.
Apparently Liberals don't have a sense of humor.
Good moats with aligators make good neighbors. Oh, well.
There better be frickin laser beams on somebody’s heads.
No, it’s not that they don’t have a sense of humor. They want to make him look crazy, like Perot.
Sharks with frikin’ laser beams on their frikin’ heads...
And ill tempered sea bass....
Well, it is not a joking matter and if they are going to nail Rick Perry to wall regarding immigration then the same should be done to all. Get serious, what is his plan?
And the Perrywinkles are more than willing to help out.
I really do like the guy. I just wish he wasn’t so invested in that horrible 999 plan.
Its temporary to setup a smooth transition to full implementation of the FairTax. If you don’t know how the Fairtax works, READ THE BOOKS!
Don’t be as smart as Rep. Conyers.
Obviously Perry supporters don’t have a sense of humor either! :D
I get frustrated when people ask what Cain’s plan or stance is on a specific issue. I took a week out of my life and looked ALL of that crap up for myself before I threw my support in behind him. It was hard work and I examined his negatives as well as the positives. I did the same thig with Perry. (Heck, I’ve *lived* in Perry’s world for years. It didn’t take as much to get caught up.)
Anyone who discounts a candidate without doing the legwork to even know what they are disavowing isn’t serious.
Am I the only one with a Google search feature on my computer?
So what *is* Cain’s position on immigration?
Cain wants to secure the border (with many different methods in order to accommodate the assorted terrains), get out of the state’s way when they pass laws that inhibit illegal immigration and simplify and expand the programs that allow LEGAL immigration.
Close the back door. Open the front. Allow people to come in who want to participate in and contribute to our society.
If he ever talks about it he'll be ditching it...quick!
Actually, you’re graphic is 2/3rds incorrect.
Perry is also Pandering where Illegal Immigration is concerned.
And your comment “Zap & Tax” is just pure propaganda where Cain is concerned.
But this is par for the course for Perry APologists.
I have been to two of Cain’s speeches and from what I have heard of his immigration stance is the laws we have are not broke, we just need to enforce them. Take that for what it is worth. I voted for Cain in our straw poll, bought his book, had him sign it, then saw he was ABC and then read about the empowerment zones on HIS website. I cannot stand for another entitlement. Absolutely not. Will not do it. Rick Perry is definitely NOT perfect, but he is my candidate (for now).
It’s humor, stop your whining.
So what is the difference between Cain's position and Perry's?
The creation of a new entitlement of empowerment zone is not a conservative value. People are not reading his plan.
The perrywinkles like the cronyism of the current tax structure, do not wish to disturb the size and power of government with a flat tax. If any of you people are interested, Neal boortz is the author.
Don’t tell your friends here. They don’t think it is a joke. They have been defending it on another thread for hours. They are going to be mighty upset when they find out they are not getting their electric fence and Cain was only joking.
Do you have any ideal, how many oil and gas wells were drilled in the united states in 2010.??? Bet not!!
Looks like you are not getting your electric fence. It was a joke by Cain.
No. It is called lower the taxes and CUT the spending. Create more tax payers BY MAKING MORE JOBS!! Gees what a concept! This gimmicky 999 with a national sales tax and empowerment zones is sticky red tape with more rules and regulations.. What kind of forms, people and resources are going to be needed for this national sales tax?? Crazy. NO THANKS CAIN=PAIN!
Looks like you like the cronyism of a national sales tax. Please explain how that is going to be handled smoothly with LESS government. A CONSERVATIVE VALUE.
Maybe there is something wrong with me, but I rather like the moat idea :-D
Marie says its a joke. No electric fence with a moat.
No, they really don't. What they consider to be humor, normal people would consider to be course vulgarity.
Here is a snapshot of the candidate’s immigration policies.
As far as I can tell ‘unhelpful’ means that they haven’t stated or demonstrated a position.
Perry defends in-state tuition for illegals
There are differences.
Ok. The only part that is a joke is the alligator/moat part. The electric fence is for real. Google it
I don't beleive that would ever happen. Once the DC crowd has both a sales and income tax, they will never get rid of either one. The ONLY practical way to replace all our other taxes with a sales tax is to do it all at once in a single bill. Once the income tax, the tax code, and the mechanism to enforce it is gone, and we are actually running without one, then it would be fairly easy to get a consitutional ammendment to prevent a new income tax.
We'll be lucky if we ever get a chance to radically change the tax structure in this country. We better get it right the first time, because it will probably take another 100 years to do it again.
:o) The alligators would sure do a better job of securing our border than the Federal government hasw done in the past 27 years! They’d ake short work of it, too.
It is really a shame he keeps touting that stupid plan which will never even get a hearing (and doesn’t deserve one). Every time I start warming up to the guy he starts again with Revolution No 9 “number nine, number nine, number nine ...”
Now dig deep! I lost a full week of my life researching Cain before I decided to support him. It took me less than 5 minutes to answer your question for you.
And I AVOIDED all of the articles that were doing nothing more than slamming the ‘heartless’ comment or bashing in-state tuition.
You can filter through all of this stuff as well as i can and find the truth.
I am going to have to agree with you :)
Well, there’s one in my back yard, but I’ll let you count the rest.
Reagan and Kemp promoted empowerment zones (otherwise known as Enterprise zones).
If you start feeling a liitle discouraged after being bombarded with all the anti-Cain stuff being thrown out by the followers of a certain Then all you have to do is watch a video of Mr. Cain speaking like this one and the laughter makes it all feel better.
“The creation of a new entitlement of empowerment zone is not a conservative value. People are not reading his plan.”
So far, I love 999. I am concerned because there are a lot of detailed questions that we have and no answers yet.
The general principle is sound. The important thing to remember (both from the pro or against position on Cain) is that CONGRESS will ultimately be writing the final bill. Not Cain.
Cain may make suggestions, but we have no idea what’ll land on his desk.
In the end, we must ask ourselves, is 999 (in it’s purest form) a generally good or bad idea?
For better or worse, congress will be the entity who’ll hammer out the details.
I was only kidding....but I would like to see as much effective fencing built as geographically and financially feasible ....this is one of the the positions that I disagree with Gov Perry.
By tossing out the present IRS.
I lopve your tag line!
LOL, knew you did not know. You act as if we have not been drilling thousands of wells, are if well drilling was something new. It is not. Actually i would bet that 90% of the land rigs are working, with 10% getting moved to new locations.
Cain said himself that he would sign no bill that was not good for the people of the U.S.A.. He is an honorable man.
