As a Zonie, I can tell you that we are infested with Cali rejects and 3rd strikers, along with illegals. We can no longer be counted on to vote conservative. Gee...almost like it was planned that way.

Beware Texas. They are headed your way.

John McCain should engage his Pea brain before opening his alligator mouth.

John McCain has to be one of the worst examples of a Republican in my lifetime.

There are a few here in Texas acting up just to make sure the new transplants don’t feel too comfy just yet. The housing market on the north side of Austin has done a complete about face. There isn’t enough inventory for the demand! I have a friend closing on his house this week who can’t find another house to buy to move into so he has to stay in hotel. It’s insane how fast people are moving to Texas. Rick Perry needs to dial it back a notch.

Arlen Specter did the right thing. He joined the Democrats.

Of course he was still a POS, but he knew he wasn’t a Republican.

Whatever you do, just make it impossible for libs to stay there. Pass all kinds of rules and regs to make their lives impossible. Promote everything they hate. Since we share no common ground with them, it will be fairly easy.

And God whatever you do, DO NOT let them on the school boards!!!

If they can flip Texas, the outcome of any future POTUS election will never be in doubt.

With the lock on Ca, Il and NY they start the game with 104 points - Tx makes that 142 - with only 270 to win.

“Arlen Specter did the right thing. He joined the Democrats.”

The right thing? He couldn’t get re-nominated as a Republican so he really didn’t have a choice. He was originally a RAT back in the ‘50s, so he just went back to his “roots.” The other interesting thing is that he “emigrated” from his birthplace in Wichita, KS to Pennsylvania, unlike most of the liberal marxists who were born in the Northeast, and moved in a westerly direction trying to find a new “next to foul.”

What McCain and Graham have ratcheted up these past few days has been more “Wacko Bird” than anything “Tea Party” people have ever done. This is gonna backfire on those two big time.

flashback... Rand Paul, John McCain spar over NDAA ‘indefinite detention’ language Dec 2012

… “The decision by the NDAA conference committee, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to strip the National Defense Authorization Act of the amendment that protects American citizens against indefinite detention now renders the entire NDAA unconstitutional,” Sen. Paul said in a statement.

“When the government can arrest suspects without a warrant, hold them without trial, deny them access to counsel or admission of bail, we have shorn the Bill of Rights of its sanctity,” the senator continued

Also, I don’t know your laws, rules and regulations there in Texas, but if I were there and there was a house up for sale in my “hood”, get together with your like minded neighbors and walk around with your guns in full display.

Go introduce yourselves as their “potential” neighbor. Libs hate guns. If they see one, they will flee.

"Can anyone tell us how McCain got the GOP nomination other than Lieberman backed him.?"

Yes ex-snook, Democrat support for McCain is in the senate archives. Barack Obama and his campaign chair Clare McCaskill sponsored Senate Bill 2678 in February 2008. What is SB 2678? It's reference title is the ‘‘Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act’’. This is treated by the progressives, and by the less informed, as conspiracy nonsense. The term conspiracy may apply, as it does to many tactics, but it is also verifiably true. The resulting law, had the bill passed - it failed in the senate - would have had to become an amendment because only the Supreme Court may interpret provisions of the Constitution. John Conyers tried twice between 2003 and 2006 and failed to pass an amendment which would have made both Obama and McCain eligible to be president, as did Orrin Hatch, whose intention, in 2002, was to make Schwarzegger eligible, just three of some twenty eight attempts to amend the Constitution. Our legislators know the truth and the law, but both face essentially unlimited financial resources which will surely bankrupt anyone who talks. We are the drones who fund their machinations, clearly in violation of our Constitution.

After S 2678 failed Obama, Leahy, McCaskill, Clinton, Webb, and Coburn, as cosponsors sponsored a "resolution", Senate Resolution 511, in April 2008, just two months after S 2678 failed to pass. The keystone statement in SR 511 is this statement by Senator Leahy; “Because he was born to American citizens, there is no doubt in my mind that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen,” said Leahy. “I expect that this will be a unanimous resolution of the Senate.” It was unanimous, including Senator Obama, whose father was never a US citizen.

Resolutions are not actionable, and are used more like a poll of the senate. The object of both actions was John McCain, who was otherwise ineligible because he was not a natural born citizen as defined in some twenty six Supreme Court cases, one of which established the common-law definition as precedent.

The legal details have been examined exhaustively. It is a bit ironic that it was Democrat lawyers, many professors of law, who carefully examined McCain's shortcoming, that having been born on territory, The Panama Canal Zone that was not incorporated by Congress until 1937. The cleverness by Democrats was in using the famous prisoner of war whose allegiance to the US has seldom been in doubt, but whose feeling of entitlement is also well known. With McCain as Obama's opponent, Republicans knew they dare not raise the fact because Hillary was sitting eagerly in the wings.

Obama described himself as a naturalized, and never as a natural born citizen; "I was born a subject of the British Commonwealth...", and "I am a native-born citizen of the US." A "native-born" citizen implies naturalization by the 14th Amendment. Only our president must be "natural born". The terminology is so confusing that both Democrats and Republicans knew that, with the media using ridicule, Alinsky's 5th rule, and then avoiding any discussion they could silence "orginalist" objects. As Andy Stern coined, use the "politics of persuasion, and if that doesn't work, the politics of force." Democrats immediately found IRS violations to charge the only Congressman to ask, Nathan Deal, and force his resignation. After that, no one dared raise the eligibility issue. That probably explains Rubio, Jindal and Cruz. If all candidates violate Article II, it will be easier to amend the Constitution, particularly with a packed Supreme Court.

The simple fact is that the Constitution doesn't have definitions, by design. To remain eternally understood, terms used in the Constitution must be interpreted, as Chief Justice Morrison Waite explained in Minor v. Happersett, "At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens,..." These words have never been amended, and established the "common law" definition as "positive law", or "precedent. John McCain was, unfortunately, not born on our soil. Barack Obama was not only not born to citizens, his birth was governed by British law, a subject of the Crown. McCain knows all of this, and joined, perhaps even colluded with, the Democrat party to become a presidential candidate.

Sad to say, but not surprising, the likely prospects being touted by the GOP, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, and Ted Cruz are all naturalized citizens. Is this because it protects those still in government from prosecution? All three have been cagey about answering natural born citizenship questions. As long was we compare what lawyers and academicisns tell us is in Supreme Court cases, Rubio, Cruz, and Jindal might face an honest questioner (unlike Sean Hannity, whose company's largest private stockholder is Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin-Talal, who fed a fictitious definition to Cruz during a recent interview.

Amen! I have wanted to leave NY for some time now. But now this whole nanny cuomo thing has me rethinking my plans.

Perhaps I should just move upstate. I have a redneck (and I mean red) cousin who lives there. My sister and I went up for Labor Day weekend. My Aunt, his mother and her husband has a house right across the street.

He SO wanted me to by it (Uncle Harry holds the deed, and would hold the mortgage as well). He said it would be SO simple for me to buy it.

My only problem is getting a job up there. His county is one of the counties in NY that have passed resolutions to the nanny states anti 2nd amendment screw over.

Now I am rethinking my move out of NY. Why should I have to flee? Heck, there’s a cow farm right down the road. Fresh beef, a home, friendly neighbors who have your back AND tons of acreage for hunting and target practice?

Oh, and fireworks. My cousin is obsessed with them. He and the boys put on one heck of a show that weekend!

done that here inact I had one coupkle from up north looking at a house some time ago and they asked me what it was like around here.
I told them it;s nice, yes we hear shot guns going off but that;s because of hunting here all year round and the smoke fro the back yard fires is not that bad and once you get past the kids riding their ATV’s then it’s not that noisy

The looks of their faces was priceless, oh and the house a few weeks later was moved in by a family from TX and who are conservatives.

We have a couple of confederate flags flying in this neighborhood so to piss the north east liberals off or to make them have another though moving here.
