I think you hit it on the head. They said Romney had been invited and was the only one who had declined. I don't know how much was because they're pissed that he declined after they've campaigned so hard for him or how much is because they finally realized he's not gaining any new traction and they fear Cain as you said. Either way okay by me.
And those stats will only get worse.There is so much that needs to be cleaned up in the ozero govt. it boggles the mind.
In South Fla.its almost sport to game the system,its done via the “no habla defense.”NO telling what real numbers of offenders are.
I expect that the “neighbor” is doing the same as I: Running a (very secure) wireless router, partly for the convenience of connection around the house for Grandma’s little laptop and also for visitors (like kids & grandkids) who don’t seem to be able to go without 24/7 Facebook or email feeds.
So MYOB already, or stand by for an invitation to come help me install a hardwired network both at Fish’s and our ancient establishment.
Besides, see tag:
Problem is the enviros know this as well. You can only imagine the legal minefields rat attorneys have set up for us to traverse.
Not to worry....that department and most of it’s lawyers just got written out of next year’s budget. !!
We need a pro-immigrant, low immigration policy with the following elements:
A merit based immigration system that brings in the skills and talents to keep us competitive in the global economy;
Reduced immigration levels based on need and more closely approximating 300,000 immigrants a year vice the current 1.2 million annually;
Elimination of extended chain migration, i.e., family reunification, limiting it to the nuclear family;
Enforcement of existing immigration laws to reduce the current illegal alien population and limit future illegal immigration, i.e., attrition thru enforcement. Enforcement would include: (1) ending the job magnet; (2) increasing coordination at the federal level by eliminating barriers to information sharing among agencies; (3) leveraging state and local enforcement resources; (4) fully implementing the US-VISIT Program to track and deport visa overstays; and (5) secure the border and make mandatory such programs as E-Verify and 287 [g] authority to assist employers and law enforcement in identifying illegal aliens;
Elimination of birthright citizenship and the visa lottery program;
Ensure that anyone who enters this nation illegally is not rewarded by being permitted to stay and work here; i.e., no amnesty;
Streamline the processing and adjudication of immigration cases; and
Promote pro-immigrant measures that help newcomers assimilate and embrace the values and principles of our Founders and the Constitution.
Cutting off all benefits to illegals unless they have children who are citizens?
Illegals are not entitled to federal benefits except thru their American born children. Supreme Court decisions have mandated that illegals must be admitted to K-12 education (Plyler vs Doe) and that hospital emergency rooms must treat all who enter. Many states have provided benefits knowingly to illegals, in-state tuition being one of them. The costs are enormous and growing. When you reward something, you get more of it.
I think we should seriously study all benefit programs. There is surely much waste and fraud.
That is a given. When you include the entitlement programs along with means tested welfare programs, more than two-thirds of the federal budget is spent on the redistribution of wealth. And when you consider that 42 cents of every federal dollar spent is borrowed, a lot of it from the Chinese, is it any wonder that we are the world's largest debtor nation? The entitlement programs alone represent an unfunded liability of over $60 trillion.
Seems the Gobmint already has...
I had to call the unemployment office...eventually (after several days trying) got through to an "East Indian gent" who was obviously reading from the teleprompter (video screen for those in Rio Vista).
Could be a local hire however.
So you’re not going to vote for someone who would be good for the COUNTRY, you’re going to vote for someone who would be good for YOU ?
I’m going to vote for the person who I feel will be best for our Country, regardless of how it will affect me personally. Our Country is on the line here. I will survive either way. But my Country may not.
The 14th applied to freed slaves and the children of slaves.
>>All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.<<
Actually if born to Mexican parents, they are Mexicans, which makes them subject to the laws of Mexico.
“Bears dont vote.”
Things like this can also be used by our candidates to spin back on interviewers about their failure to cover news.
That is your interpretation of the Constitution (and I agree with it) but that is not the current law as written and carried out in the real world. Birthright citizenship is the law of the land until changed. Millions in this country have received their citizenship this way.
If this bill is ever passed, there will no doubt be a a Constitutional challenge that will go to SCOTUS for resolution. If it is not upheld, then a Constitutional amendment will be necessary. Only the US and Canada have birthright citizenship in the developed world. Ireland was the last country in Europe to get rid of it and they did it by constitutional amendment.
But taxation and spending are two completely different issues, much like sports and education. So much so that there are different committees (Ways and Means, and Appropriations) for those two separate fiscal activities.
So what is your crazy uncle's tax cut plan?
So I guess that stealing bandwidth is just redistributing wealth.
*Chuckle*...maybe; "Senile Bob", Would be a better description for "old Bob"...
heck, that could be "the std.", for all the LMSM "Chattering" Class...DBM.
.--56 mpg--what will it take to get there? No mention of what it takes,small cars that kill people in wrecks, etc.all bs. This is what the admin wants us all in...
A lot of thinking people weren't buying it long before any of that happened. Those who did either flunked junior high science, or were getting paid off to lie.
The hundredths of a percent of CO2 concentration (compared to 78% of Nitrogen and 21% Oxygen) isn't enough to form a heat retaining layer at any altitude in the atmosphere.
Isn't that basic high school information?
I didn't interpret it. It's written in plain English...I just read it.
Current law must be based on the English re-interpretation of the Mexican/Spanish interpretation of the Constitution.
I was thinking maybe "smelly old Bob".
that works, too....
LOL. I live in the real world. US Code says otherwise, which is why the USG issues passports to people born on our soil regardless of who the parents are (diplomats excluded.) We even have a birth tourism industry. Why do you think folks like Rep King are introducing a bill to change the law if it all it takes is a reading of the Constitution?
Exactly. Turn their own code words against them. Can't you visualize Cain being asked how he reacts to being inauthentic and comes back with, "What does authentic mean? Does it mean fail in school to avoid "acting white" so that you are prepared only to fail in the job world to avoid looking like a sell-out? And who has any right to tell ME I'm not authentically black? These people who have "led" by keeping their followers down?"
I can't wait to see it and hear it!
LOL—I love it!!
Great ideas they would make a huge difference.
UH Oh I feel a Bevis and Butthead moment coming up.....
Skate boards Rock!!!We’re gonna score Butthead!!
You know Bob, I only heard that term before on DU. In any case, it's offensive to me, frankly.
You mean RINOs, as real Republicans are conservative.
We need to reclaim our party, not shun it.
another great one as always Bray
Last time I looked, that’s USE BY PERMISSION, don’t have nothing to do with any politician’s buzzword.
What I think, Jeff, is that accusing a long-time freeper and poster on this thread, or accusing her daughter (which is worse to us mother hens) of stealing over such a petty issue is unbecoming and dangerous if the person you are accusing is Fishtalk.
Let it drop.
Newt on the sofa with Pelosi didn’t make me as mad as his undermining of Bush over Katrina.
He stampeded the Congress into passing all of that Katrina money (including the gift cards)by talking about a Gulf Coast Marshal Plan, and then when it turned out to be corrupt, wasteful, and a total boondoggle, he then got on Bush and Congress for getting the government involved.
The Pelosi thing mostly just hurt Newt. The Katrina thing caused headaches for a lot of people and contributed to the idea that Bush was incompetent over Katrina.
Mark Levin calls them Repukes.
So youre not going to vote for someone who would be good for the COUNTRY, youre going to vote for someone who would be good for YOU ?
Im going to vote for the person who I feel will be best for our Country, regardless of how it will affect me personally. Our Country is on the line here. I will survive either way. But my Country may not.
Powered by "green energy" of the "Chevy Volt" type.
FNS gave him one long campaign ad.
RINO run Fox News is still Mitt country but if he falls they are only too willing to move next door to Perryland.
Cigarette and alcohol taxes are taxes on the poor.
Shouldn’t libs be for removing those taxes?
Pray for America
Thank you mark, glad you liked it. I appreciate it.
Pray for America
I accused no one. It was hinted with tacit approval that somebody was browsing the Internet using a neighbor's wireless connection without the neighbor's permaission. I merely pointed out that IF that person was using the neighbor's connection without permission, then that is theft. What I stated is the absolute truth. But I guess I should have expected the hysterical responses I am reading.
By the way, theft is still theft even if the thief is a long time Freeper.
If you think I’m offended by that, I’m not. I don’t care who else said it, because they were right to say it.
But if you want to trade Democrat barbs, then you’ll make a great Democrat by voting what is best for you, rather than what is best for the country. Or you could just go on down to OWS and hang out with others of like mind.
Isn’t it productive to slam each other, rather than to stick to the issue? Yeah, I think so too.
Guess we’d better get a room so we can be hysterical together, eh?
Are you sure you don’t want to back Perry? If you have a few minutes, take a look at this video.
Then tell me what he was drinking.
Certainly very animated at the very least.
There are many problems with both Perry and Newt’s tax plan.
The various flat tax plans are an attempt to hijack the reform movement without actually reforming the tax code in a substantive fashion.
Both plans are what do I need to say to get votes plan rather then what do we need to do to fix the tax code plan.
Neither broaden the tax base thus leaving the current system of payers and payees in play for future political exploitation.
They keep in place the corrupt practice of playing favorites in the tax code by still granting special exemptions. This is the greatest flaw in the Flat Tax plans. They leave in the politically popular exemptions to pander to certain voter blocks. It the best example of where the Flat Tax plans are not serious attempts to address the fundamental problems in the tax code but a political gimmick designed to rejuvenate flagging campaigns.
The Flat Tax maintains the current focus on taxing income instead of consumption thus punishing the producers at the expense of the users.
It leaves in place the current ability for trust funds and the massively wealthy to avoid paying any tax by structuring their payouts in forms other then income.
It does nothing to tap the underground off the books economy.
So while the Flat Tax is an improvement over the current system, it is merely tinkering with the existing tax code while leaving in place the same corrupt, flawed foundation.
Of the various tax plans, Cains 9-9-9 is the much better plan
Seems you have more in common with OWS then you do with Freepers Bob.
I don’t think he was drunk. He looked animated, happy and enjoying himself.
I don’t want to join the dems jumping on any Republican candidate. The remarks at youtube look like that to me.
I like Cain, Bachmann and Perry. Newt, not so much, but I’m willing to forgive certain things if he mea culpa’s. Romney is my last choice.
My first choice announced she wasn’t running....
