What the Republican'ts know most about representative government is the concept of free speech. Money is now free speech. The more money one has, the more free speech. If a person doesn't have enough free speech, he/she will never get the attention of any elected official.
Interesting concept Ed. Let's allow illegal aliens to stay and enjoy the benefits of citizens. If so, why bother with trivialities like citizenship at all? Why not just let anyone into this country?
I think it is a typical Obungle half measure that sounds better than it is. He also missed (yet again) an opportunity to lambast the do-nothing congress when it comes to this issue.
Emperor Obama is just pretending to be progressive on certain issues in order to con people into voting for four more years of the kill list, police repression, government secrecy, etc. Remember Obama's campaign promises from 2008? How did that work out? War criminals are running around free, whistleblowers face the most aggressive assault in U.S. history. Where was Obama during Walker's assault on Wisconsin? Too busy selling access at his fundraisers, too cowardly to stand with workers.
Ah Alfred...you want to talk about rules, and regulations, and priorities? Let's talk about how the GOP and perhaps more polticians love to look the other way whenever it suits them. Recall how they toss all the rules and oh God help us, "ooooooo reguLATIONS? oo,oh-oh," out the window whenever convenient for one of the investment scam plans. The better to casino scam your houses with, said the Wall Street Wolf, the better to run off with the AIG insurance funds and let the tax payers bail them out with, said the Wall Street Wolf, and on and on to cheap labor, outsourcing our jobs, and opening the gates to immigration for cheap labor. Phooey to anyone concerned with "rules and regulations." Thou protesteth too much....and too incompletely. Puhleeze.
Let me get this straight Ed. The governor of Michigan takes over the bankrupt city of Benton Harbor and kicks the people's duelly elected representives to the curb. You then went nuts about this for months saying how it is an affront to representive government and a abuse of power. When your President does the same thing you think it's just great. Nothing like being a big fat hypocrite Ed.
I guess we are still pretending that we are unable to secure our borders. I guess we are still pretending that U.S. small businesses don't want this source of cheap labor (and never did). My best guess is that Mr. Grassley didn't mention the fact that the current administration has deported twice as many people as the Bush administration.
I can't help but wonder what a beautifal place America would be if only the Native Americans deported all the illegal immigrants. I guess some people feel I got mine is more important than justice.
(for SW) Selective memory...you too? Still not hearing any outrage over war built for economic support or expansion, disguised as flag waving?)(now one of your great GOP senators wants to feed us the same "propaganda as other countries receive so that the American public supports any "preemptive" wars" for whatever reason they dream up), or the Great Wall Street casino housing robbery. Come on. Talk about other things that ALSO really matter and cause human death and despair..not just a glitch to your portfolio. Disgust permeates.
