Sean wanted Rubio for veep because Rubio’s a Hispanic which is pretty shallow reasoning but Sean has been against this amnesty bill.
I’m certain you’re right.
Let's keep calling, faxing emaiing until we find out what they're going to do. Burn up the lines, Praise God and pass the ammuniton!
Bachmann, Steve King, Gohmert, and Stockman look good. Maybe Rohrabacher, who threatened to remove Boehner as speaker.
People like Gowdy and Goodlatte are creating comprehensive immigration bills in the House, and I am hoping they will see the light some day, but right now I would not count on them.
I would not apologize for telling the truth. However, I will say that when we see what the pieces of the House "Comprehensive Immigration" bill have in them, people who assumed that all we have to do is kill the senate bill will pay more attention, and should become more active.
Rep. Erik Paulsen, Minnesota joins congressman Bachmann being firmly against amnesty, in fact, maybe one of the Democrat Representatives from the rural areas may be against the amnesty, I’d have to double check it.
I don't think the House immigration bill officially exists yet, but it when it does, it might have "legalization" instead of a path-to-citizenship. I think of "amnesty" as either of the above, but others have different definitions.
Is Paulsen opposed to the senate bill? To Obama's Dream Act?
Opposed to the Senate Bill, I can’t answer your 2nd question. I’m not well-versed on the topic, I’d hope he is.
Against the senate bill, bur I'm not sure he is against a path-to-citizenship. (I don't have cable any more).
If there were more Dems who might at least oppose a bad immigration bill, that would help.
I basically only listen to SH on radio fairly frequently, not on TV. Yes, he’s for “securing the border” iron-clad first and then talk of the other. Hard to say he has spoken for “path-to-citizenship”, more like one step at a time so to answer your question, perhaps if the border were indeed shut down tight, we’d move to the next issue but we basically know, almost with 99% certainty, we are not going to get a secured border.
I have seen his TV show a number of times all the same, he just repeats what he says on his show. That’s the thing with Sean, he repeats himself so much, broken record “I’ve gone down to the border and seen for myself blah, blah, blah.”
Sean had his man-crush on Marco Rubio for being vice-president, I haven’t heard him rant on Rubio for quite a while now.
They called today, asking for money to defeat Obama and his agenda. I asked “why?”. I told them that this amnesty travesty is playing right into Obama’s hands, and that there are 14 Republican senators who need to be primaried. I told him that the senate bill will change this country forever.
Our conversation went on for a while but, in short, I told him that I would be controlling my purse strings, and not the GOPe...ever again.
BUMP. No need to apologize, Lakeshark. This is the most important issue of our time. Everyone, without exception needs to be paying attention and needs to be making calls and sending e-mails. It’s the very least we can do.
We’re not rich. We can’t buy TV ads.
Conservatives can multi task.
We know we have 70 solid votes for the Constitution... there were 70 that vowed to fight this tooth and nail... now if they have been successful at bringing more on board is the question.
Keep up the pressure. Presume we can win this by acting.
I agree, and will let Sen Cornyn know also Ted Cruz, but he’s in our ball park.
OH, I’ve let Flores know we’re not for the immigration bill,and his girl took the message, but no comment. Interesting.
Melt the lines!
Stinky Harry had the gall to say yesterday that Boehner will not consider pleasing so called ‘moderates’ in his bill but will only support a bill along party lines.
This is from the jerk that shoved Obamacare down our throats strickly along party lines.
NO BILL! PERIOD!
Some links for finding your representatives
“This is from the jerk that shoved Obamacare down our throats strickly along party lines.”
Exactly! Good point!
We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to Government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the Field.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the Characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
I hope your ankle feels better soon. GOD bless you and keep fighting!!!
” Its odd, here Americans are once again having to beg their own representatives on a daily basis, to save what is left of American rule of law, our sovereignty, our freedom and common sense..
There is something very wrong with all this.”
When we have to spend our time and money, to do the job for congress?
You bet there is something wrong!
” 2,000+ posts on today’s Zimmerman thread.
And we wonder why we’re losing.......”
Sadly Lakeshark, we don’t wonder why.
” Melt the lines! “
For what it is worth, I had a conversation with a House Rep in IN (not mine). I wrote a letter to others and my arugument was well received.
You may be able to get this out better than others or know those who can.
On the substance of the bill, not to mention to ideology, what in the bill motivates any illegal alien to come forward? As I understand it, it is totally voluntary for illegals to come forward “to be counted”. Why would an illegal immigrant choose to become a citizen once the threat of being found out and deported is gone? When this bill passes, all illegals get some time off from being stressed. Further, becoming a citizen brings on all sorts of restrictions, regulations and responsibilities that they get away with not following now.
If they become citizens here’s how their lives change:
2. Loss of “In-State Tuition” in a lot of jurisdictions
3. Loss of free health care
4. Extra effort to get government assistance
5. They have to pay a bunch of fees and fines
6. They likely have to get some legal representation
After the bill is passed, the lives of all illegal immigrants gets a lot easier whether they line up to report and pay their fines or not. In fact, when coupled with Obamacare, there is better motivation to NOT become a citizen.
This should be any Reps out if they feel like there is political pressure for the RINOS.
There are people here that think Giuliani is a viable conservative candidate for president. I spit at them.
He introduces every RINO and dim as “his good friend”. Therefore he is a loser and has no judgement. I have watched his show twice and never again.
A PATRIOT AND A:
STEELY EYED MISSLEMAN!
Spoke to a argumentative little smart a$$ in Boehner’s office this morning. I told him that I had to go to work and to save the flim flam for someone else and to just put a check mark in the NO AMNESTY column.
When that phony Hannity comes on after Rudh the radio goes off.
1/Media makes noises about “immigration Bill” not passing the House
2/Lulled into a false sense of security, Joe public eases up on pressure on his/her congressman.
3/The House passes an Immigration bill with “border security” and “no amnesty”
4/Senate/House conference passes a 2700 pages monstrosity which contains:
(a)Full Amnesty, after you read the small print and/or the corresponding legal challenges that are designed to unlock the poison payload in the Bill.
(b)Massive new pork barrel spending [Murkowskism]
(c)Thousands of legal hooks to attach more Democrat/Communist front groups AKA ACORN etc funding.
(d)References in the bill to Other complex 1000 page Laws so the number of legal parasites required to interpret and pontificate upon the exact legal meaning of each malignant line is grown exponentially.
Did I miss anything?
Saw a commercial for the “uch needed” amnesty bill, and with the pictures of Boehner, Rubio, and Ryan, the text and words said that these solidly nservative conservatives support the bill.
LIV (Low Information Voters) will be fooled by that, which is exactly what they are counting on.
Conservative MY FOOT!
More brainwashing for the masses.
Lots of Boehner puff pieces going around in the MSM, like “How Boehner can Save Immigration”, etc. ,etc.
(e)includes caveats for endless pontificating over “border security” resulting in zero border security.
Point made. I will seek clarification from my esteemed Congressman.
Maybe our calls are making then back away from a "comprehensive" approach, maybe not.
Throw Mama from the Train.
I was thinking today about how Congress and the President have been ignoring the plight of our men and women in the military. They are getting hit hard with this sequester.
It doesn’t seem like anyone in Congress cares about them, just the illegals.
