Immigration Reform Supporters To Rally Against Obama’s Lack Of Progress

March 24, 2010 by  

Immigration reform supporters to rally against Obama's lack of progressFrustrated with President Obama’s broken promise to overhaul the immigration system within his first year in office, thousands of grassroots activists rallied at the National Mall in Washington March 21 to express their displeasure with the lack of progress concerning immigration reform.

In the face of heavy criticism from supporters of new legislation, Obama reiterated his campaign promises last week, stating that he will “do everything in [his] power” to put an immigration bill in front of Congress by the end of 2010.

The president also supported a reform outline authored by Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), which will force undocumented workers to admit they broke the law, pay back taxes and perform community service to become legal United States residents, Fox News reports. Illegal immigrants would also need to pass a background check and an English exam before being cleared to stay in the country.

However, when asked about the administration’s current priorities, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs did not mention immigration reform and indicated that nothing would get accomplished without bipartisan support, according to ABC News.

“It’s got to be more than the president wants to get something done,” he said.

    Kelly: if you have access to the decision makers up in the immigration system I would urge you to find a way to twist arm or urge the republicans to handle immigration. I think the key thing that is missing in the reform is that. Urging Obama to pass it will make him work for it but without the bipartisan support his hands might be tied. We have done a good job so far to keep him committed but I think the republicans need some major arm twisting.

    Rolando is the President really full of BS? Listen the President is doing all that he can. You know he had to divert all of his attention on the health care bill that finally got pass into law. Give him time please because now the President is going to have to waste more time in traveling around the country selling the Health Care Bill to America. The Republicans have already told lies about this bill. These Republicans (modern Pharisees) was all for it when former President Bush was running up the deficit with the senseless war in Iraq. The President have already said that his next agenda is going to tackle the immigration law. The bordors are going to have to be more secure and the illegal aliens that are already in this company something is going to have to be done. I have said enough. Therefore, Rolando Mr. Obama is not full of BS! Thank you

    • jomama

      Yes he is. Nuff said.

    • Mike In MI

      Obama is not just full of BS, he IS BS. To say that he is full of BS indicates there is more to him than what he is full of. NUH-UH. NO-O,
      N-O-O, NUH-UH. He is what he is.

        Mexico is a communist country and has been since 1932.American oil companies were invited in to develope the oil fields. When finished the the mexican government took over the developed oil fields and kicked the american companies out,laughing all the way. The trade agreements gatt and nafta should be repeeled. The drug cartels operate with impunity,supplying drugs to the mexican mafia and gangs,its members here illegally and our goverment,both parties,do little to nothing to stop the flow of illegal immigration. There are between 30 and 40 million illegal immigrants in america and all the government wants to do is provide health care and the right to vote to these cockaroaches. The problem is our government. They are terrorists of the worst kind. Worse han those of 9/11/2001.

        • American liberal

          Lock’n load?… We’ll lock and load your butt into gitmo… You fascist are nothing more than domestic terrorist like Timothy McVeigh and you belong in a cage like an animal… Most of your rightwingers aren’t even good enough to be classed as animals….you’re rightwibg nutss…. Maybe the patriot act was a good idea ..you want to act like terrorist then you can be locked up like one…

        • eyeswideopen

          sph, Mike Boehner, stated that Senator Driehaus was “a dead man” for voting for the bill, and “can’t go back to Cincinnati”. Sarah Palin has a hit list, with a bulls eye scope, stating that everyone should lock and load, there have been window broken out at Dem offices in Wichita Ks, Tucson, Az, Rochester, Ny, Niagra Falls, Ny with a Mike Vanderboegh prouding taking responsibilty for it. Senators calling one of their one a “Baby Killer”, some one cutting the gas line to a Senators brothers house by accident, they meant to get his.
          I would say that the radicals have started and they don’t care who gets hurt or dies. They want the power back and they don’t see anything wrong in violence. Sad isn’t it? They put a new spin on bad losers. Obviously they hate this country and don’t honor the history of democracy or the Constitution.

        • eyeswideopen

          cr747, did you patent that name? I have seen it on Alter net, and Newsmax many times. Did you ever consider that someone else might also have that moniker? It is interesting how easily and how ugly you people get right away,without asking nicely for an explaination of why someone is using what you assume is your name. When someone was using my name, I just nicely asked them to stop and they did. I didn’t threaten them with knowing somebody in “high places” and would find out who they were. Goodness, you are showing why everybody thinks you all are radicals and arrogrant, with a touch of entitlement in your attitudes. I do have a question, just what were you going to do when you found this person???????????

      WC,
      I don’t know if it’s BS or not but it was announced today that the bill left all the kids with (GET THIS)pre-exhisting conditions!!! such heartfelt charity!!! I’m so proud of our president…NOT!!! This is what comes from not reading a bill before you vote on it!!!!

      • Smilee

        I’ll bet you heard that on FOX, fair and balanced you know, regardless it is not true, not that you really care though

    • JC

      Obama is a liar who no intention whatsoever of reforming immigration law or policy. His boss’s, the globalists, want to tear down America.
      It doesn’t matter who is President, the endgame is the destruction of America. Until we taker back the Republic and once again enshrine the Constitution (less a couple of amendments)as the law of the land, we can expect more empty promises and carrot on a stick politics.

      • eyeswideopen

        What the Constitution isn’t good enough for you? RWA’s always want to change it, or totally suspend it for their own agenda. Too bad, as the rest of us want to keep it. The idea of letting the Conservatives write in that you must be a Christian, and only belong to their political party is sick.

        • zack

          eyes, I believe it was the democrazys that just broke the Law of the Constitution by voting YES on the health care plan that they voted on, and hid behind doors so no body else could see just how crooked they where.

        • Idiots All Around Me

          seems you ONLY listen to Madcow – to bad – The upsurper Obombination Pelooser, and Reek all stuck their middle finger up to the American People by IGNORING the Constitution of the United States and our Bill of Rights, not to mention the MAJORITY of the American Citizens. You must be one of those welfare receipants – you like getting handouts at others expense (bet you are the first in line!) and can’t seem to work to support yourself (but then why should you – you get FREE handouts from Socialist/Communist living in America’s Whitehouse) – of course you like those people – you are one of them. I can see why you are so proud@

        • Smilee

          IN THE END THE COURTS WILL FORCE THESE IDIOTS TO BELIEVE THAT THEY DID NOTHING UNCONSTITUTIONAL, SAD HOW FEW ON HERE UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION THEY ALL TWIST IT TO MEAN WHAT THEY WANT IT TO MEAN, HOW MANY TIMES DO THE COURTS HAVE TO RULE AGAINST THESE GUYS BEFORE THEY GET IT,, REMEMBER ALL THOSE BIRTHER LAWSUITS WITH ALL THE CLAIMS OF UNCONSTITUTIONAL THAT HAS TURNED OUT TO BE ALL BS AND PROVES WHAT I HAVE JUST SAID.

        • eyeswideopen

          Zack, since you think you know the law, maybe you should go back to law school and learn a little more.

    • Patriotic American

      WC?!?! You actually believe that barrack hussein obama(“bho” or “BO” yeah he stinks) is ever telling the truth, being honest, or is doing what he actually believes what is best for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Then I would like to offer you a chance to buy a bridge, or perhaps a bird sanctuary. barrack hussein obama has never been honest or open about anything. He is only interested in control of the people. He is only interested in his own socialist agenda. He does not care about Christian morals and ethics. He is going to do every thing he can to destroy the free democracy and republic of the people that the United States is. The most accurate descripton of BO is to say that he is a lieing sack of pig manure.

  • Natasha

    I am sick of this. Obama is trying to get this country back on its feet and these immigrants are complaining.

    After eight (8) years of Garbage with President George W. Bust aka A***HOLE but this country into shreds, Obama is cleaning up. If they could wait, I am sure that President Obama will do something about it.

    Do you know how tough it is to be a President, especially when your country is in a mess. He worked on the Health care, (which I say, YES by the way), now he has to get more people into jobs, establish is system for education, green the planet etc.

    So this is very tough, just let the man be and have patience.

    • WC

      Amen! Thank you

    • American liberal

      Very good post…. And very correct…. Now get ready for these rightwingers to attack you for your commonsense…

      • June

        Oh pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase! You liberals are all the same! Commonsense my a–. You have none and never will. What’s not to understand about illegal? Have you not been taught right from wrong? Illegals are costing the taxpayer (maybe you don’t understand the system) a fortune. Why is it that the U.S. congress always waits until it’s out of hand before thinking about doing something. Go away illegals, I’m sick of paying for you with my hard-earned money. I think we should stick all the liberals and immigrants in their own country and get them out of here.

        • TERRY

          Amen, June!

        • Mike In MI

          Now, June,

          Don’t get so incensed about things. Who do you think you are anyway? If you’re a conservative you’re supposed to be working your tail off, daily, at some slavish job, using your body up, wearing down your brain, dragging yourelf home at the shift end, going to bed, aying 45%-50% of your wages in taxes fees and assessments and NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR PRIVILEGE OF PAYING THE WAY FOR The Am. Lib., W.C., Rolando’s relatives and Natasha’s Ner’Do Wells, and all theother little libs out there who are too dainty to lift a fungo finger.

        • Joe H.

          june,
          it’s already been over a year and he has done NOTHING TO FIX THE JOB PROBLEM!! HE HAS DONE NOTHNG TO FIX THE ECONOMY~! ALL HE HAS DONE IS PASS A BILL THAT IS GOING TO COSTEVERY TAX PAYER MORE MONEY!!!! Eight years from now these geeks will still be ranting the same old week phrase, GIVE HIM MORE TIME!!!

          • Michael J.

            JoeH,
            About a year from now, expect to hear Obiden proclaiming that Healthcare Reform has created or saved thousands of lives.

          • Joe H.

            AMEN!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            JoeH, do you read at all or just listen to Fox? http://blogs.findlaw.com/free_enterprise/2009/03/stimulus-package-for-small-business-increased-sba-backed-loans.html

            He tried to pass hr2454 repubs didn’t like it. Which would have given tax credits to companies who had green products, who hired new employees. He wanted to use the remaining tarp funds, by getting congress to repeal and rewrite language, repubs didn’t like it,.
            Hr2334 is still pending, now repubs don’t like it.
            96Billion was for jobs in the original stimulus bill.
            Passed Small Business Job Creation and Access to Capital Act of 2009
            which ran out of money on nov30,2009. That is when he proposed to use the tarp funds. He probably could have done more, if you conservatives/repubs would work with him. But you would rather sit back and complain rather than forcing your representatives to help.

            Why are you even making any comments about him concentrating on Jobs, you people should be sticking to your mantra of GOVERNMENT IS FORCE, AND STOP GOVERNMENT SPENDING, GOVERNMENT IS TOO BIG.

            Are you now saying that you want him to spend some money on the middle class??/ Shock, shock. What a surprise. Also somewhat hypocritical, but what the hay, Middle class is the deserving class, who truly needs help, not the mighty corporations who get all the subsidies, even before the bail out occurred.

        Keep posting unAmerican liberal communists…I’m hoping you loud mouthed parasites actually bring this country to the brink of destruction. Because there will be great retribution. Be sure to stand up and wave your Obama button then…

    • zack

      Natasha, I am sick of people like you forgetting that we have an idiot for president. He can not hold a light to George W Bush. At least bush wasn’t a Muslim, he was born in the United States, and had experience as a leader for being Governor of TEXAS. Obama can’t even tie his own shoes, or tie. His MOMMY-in-law does it for him on our tax money you nit-wit.

      • Hugh Jordin

        Bush was a dolt. Obama is an American, and a Christian. Get over it. The myths you believe are nonsense spread by bitter idiots who can’t believe they lost the election.

        I bet you believe that Palin is intelligent and that Glenn Beck is not hypocritical slime pandering to dullards.

        • Joe H.

          Hugh,
          Try going to Google and type in Obama/Muslim and you will see all the little posts from all the sources that say HE said”MY MUSLIM FAITH” He also said in the case of bad times he would come down on the side of the MUSLIMS!! Perhaps you libbies are too dumb to do this so go to the library and have the librarian help you do it!!!

          • zack

            Yes Joe H, if Obama is a Christian, then I am the Prince of Wales. For crying out loud, Obama is the biggest liar, and Muslim we have in the US.

            Hands a clapping, lmao

I give you my condolences for all you have written against the ones trying to protect you, and American soil.

            I am not in Afghanistan I have been in Washington,,and that is where I am at right now..

            So if any of you see any discrepancies on something that you think I commented on,,please let me know..

            To whoever is behind this,,it is not funny at all..
            If it continues I will find out where it originated,,and who is behind it..

            I probably know who is behind this,,and where it originated from..I had a trial in Texas about a month ago with some illegal immigrants that was loaded up and took back to the border..During that week I had a voice activated recorder stolen,,some important papers,,and some very expensive equipment out of one of my carry bags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            eyes – you’ve been great with the no multiple names for quite some time now, despite what others think – - however you are right, I do question Zack or 747 – something amiss there — However, though we have agreed on a few things, most things we do not.

          • zack

            libertytrain it is me that is in Afghanistan. Supposed to be coming home in June or July. Looking forward to it. I have made comments to CR, but that is as far as i know of him

    • zack

      Natasha, aka (offensive word removed),I think you need to stop and see who got this country in this mess Obama is the guilty one for being the most ignorant president we have ever had, and I’m sure will ever have.

    • skidboot

      I know George Bush Did A hell-of a lot Better job than this yard dog leader we have now.

  • WC

    I support exactly what Dilbert is saying. President Obama is going to have to first explain to the American people that this bill is going to reduce the deficit, create jobs, and insure people who cannot afford to buy insurance. God knows that the former health care system needed fixing. I do not think arm twisting is going to make the Republicans work with the Democrats, Independents and the President. They are too busy trying to defeat this man all because of the color of his skin. I hope America learn a hard lesson from all of this that all people regardless of their color are created by God with inalienable rights. Immigration will be change! First we are going to have to stop the flow of immigrants that are coming into this country. We must make into law what are we going to do with the illegal aliens that are already here?

    • jomama

      IT’S NOT THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN. It’s the way he’s not thinking right.
      Why is it that people make a racial issue if we don’t agree with them. I see no color. I see an idiot, though.

      I totally agree with you! Liberals think money just falls out of the sky!

        That’s because they don’t have to work for it!! For most of them it does fall out of the Government skys!!!!

          That goverment sky money comes from your pocket and mine!

          • Joe H.

            I know that it’s them that don’t seem to know!!! When they find their McDonalds job puts them right at the cut off point for getting it free and they end up having to pay about 300 a month, then they’ll learn real fast!!!

      • John

        if liberals are guilty of thinking money just falls from the sky – please explain why it is that of our current 12 Trillion dollar national debt:

        When Ronald Reagan took office there was 1 trillion dollar national debt for all previous presidents.
        When Reagan left office the debt was 4 trillion
        When GH Bush left office the national debt was 5 Trillion.
        When Clinton left office the debt was 6 trillion
        When GW Bush left office the debt was 12 trillion

        Do the math – the last 3 republican presidents are responsible for
        10 trillion of the current 12 trillion national debt!!

        Now who thinks money grows on tress?

        OR put it another way..

        Reagan increased the debt by 400%
        GH Bush increased the debt by 25%
        Clinton increased the debt by 20%
        GW Bush increased the debt by 200%

        if you add and divide by number of terms:
        Republicans grow the debt by 125% PER TERM!
        Democrats 10% per term.
        It can be argued that the current administration is simply spending like republicans….

        • Ron Clarkson

          As you site numbers you read off of liberal websites & the so-called news media, who is responsible for the spending done by the Federal government? Any clue? It’s Congress, not any sitting President! As to the current excuse for a Predident, I am proud I didn’t vote for Obummer or Clinton. I have more pride in myself than many people who claim to know better. Dummycrats are by nature, Liberals. Stupid is as Stupid does. A conservative talk show host recently wrote LIBERALISM IS A DISORDER! In order for a tyrant, like we have in the White House, needs stupid people in order for that tyrant’s agenda to be completed. Kool-aid drinkers. Not sure of the term, look up Jim Jones the next time you are on the web. We need to get any person who is currently in office, to agree to 2 terma in office. After that, that person needs to join the private sector. The problem is we have people in office who will not agree to term limits.

            hows this for a liberal site – the treasury department – do your own research.

            Who has controlled the Congress since 1992?

            It is obvious you do not understand the whole Budget process.
            THE PRESIDENT tells congress what he wants to see in a budget and what he will accept.
            If congress does not fulfill the president request – he Veto’s the budget and the process starts over.

            If you believe anything that a conservative talk show host says – YOU are the one with a disorder!

            Conservative Kool-Aid drinkers seem to forget that Newt promised in 1992 that if republicans took over the house, they would give us term limits and a balanced budget amendment. What ever happened to that? Just more lies from the right

            http://zfacts.com/metaPage/lib/OMB-Historical-Table-7-1.pdf
            http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/NPGateway

            Rounding everything to the nearest 100 billion, these number represent national debt not reported deficits..

            1980 .9 trillion – Reagan
            1988 2.6 trillion
            Gain of 1.7 Trillion or almost 2x the debt of ALL presidents before him

            1988 – 1992 4 trillion national debt – GH Bush
            Gain of 2.3 Trillion

            1992- 2000 5.6 Trillion – Clinton
            Gain of 1.6 trillion

            2000-2008 10.7 trillion – GW Bush
            gain of 5.1 trillion
            But look at his last year
            2007-2008 debt went from 9.2 to 10.7 or a gain of 1.5 trillion

            2008-2009 12.3 trillion – Obama
            gain of 1.6 trillion

            Adding the number we get .9 trillion for all presidents prior to Reagan
            9.1 trillion that the republicans are responsible for
            3.2 trillion that the democrats are responsible for

            If you don’t believe me, then you give us links for the REAL numbers

          John,
          That means Obummer has spent two trillion in one year averaging that for four years, that would be Eight trillion!! Eight years would be 16 trillion!! Bush by your own numbers spent six trillion in eight years!!! Now by your own numbers Obummer is on track to spend more than all the presidents himself!!!! That two trillion doesn’t include the 950 billion this travesty of a bill will cost us and that’s if the CBO is not underestimating it!!! Anything else????

        Dr. D. nay, it doesn’t fall out of trees, it goes directly to the corporations from the American hands. Haven’t you figured out that in this country it is SOCIALISM FOR THE CORPORATIONS, AND CAPITALISM FOR THE POOR?? Just do some research on the subsidies for the top 500 corporations in this country and you will agree. 2/3 of the corporations don’t pay any taxes at all due to the loopholes and how the laws have been written. 60% of our tax revenue is generated by the middle class who make 155k-386k. 64% of the jobs are from the small business’ thank goodness, as the large corporations don’t pay any taxes. Without small business we would be dead in the water.

      If you think the Health deform Bull is about keeping you healthy it could well cost you your life, slowly, painfully and all the while getting “the best health care in the world”. The medical system is being rocked by pople deserting their offices because they have backed themselves, and their patients, into a hellish hole where healing and cures are NOT accordng to the doctors’ orders. The AMA is trying, by legislative tricks, to protect their exceedingly small but exceedingly wealthy kingdom. They don’t care who supports them financially – as long as it’s you. And they don’t cif somebodies’ bodies get sacrificed – as long as its yours.

      Newer and better ways of serving up health exist in our modern era. However, Medicine and BigPharma have the money and ability to jack jaws, break knees and put heads in vices in Washington. They don’t
      care anything about you except to know someone will pay for the things they do to you. All they want to do is keep their control.

      • Ellen

        I like what you have said Mike in MI. I know a lot of Doctors, and there are a lot of doctors that belived and were proud of their professions. They fell for the stories that the AMA would help them and the pharmacuticals would back them, as long as these untruthful people were prazed and they made money on it! Who has kept cures quiet? FOR the sake of money the public has had to search and read for themselves!
        I like Senitore Shamer D-N.Y and Lindsey Graham R-S.C. and the reform outline which will force undocumented workers to admit they BROKE the LAW, PAY back-taxes and perform comunity service! Pass a background check and an ENGLISH Exam. before ANY ONE OF THEM are clearded to STAY in OUR COUNTRY! obama said he approved of this?
        SO LETS SEE if he is A MAN or in over a year just HOT AIR! He has wasted all his time on getting HIS (not the peoples) healthcare passed, tooting his own horn of greatness for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, we the people he would not even listen to, we were not his people but he felt he had the right to our freedoms, monies and our great-great grand childrens money. He has SPENT and printed up more money then ANY OTHER president, and in such a short time!
        WE NEED JOBS, Honest jobs, our own cars, homes, and most of all our FREEDOM protected! We don’t need BIG GOVERMENT spending OUR MONEY and lives away. What about the ones who have lost their jobs, homes and all that they had? Do they get a stinking fine because of the misrepresented healthcare proaganda. YES healthcare that we knew was being sadly taken advantage of! SOME of the freeloaders visited the ER periodically, and stayed in the hospital while Insurance Co. paid for their attention. BELEVING is putting one faith in something that is suppose to represent TRUTH. Over 78% OF OR Illness and disease is caused by poor nutrition and WE ARE responsible for that! It is a Whole Picture, not a political status, NOT THE COLOR of ones skin, not a religon, everyone of us have a part in our well being. Our Trust and our Faith has been slautered, we believed and trusted now we are paying the price! VOTING and taking OUR own PEOPLE that we have representing us – WE MUST GET IT BACK IN CONTROL!! Stop blaming and take up our responsibility, BEFORE its to late!

    Here is an example of pure lies and the reason there are so many illegal aliens to start with… capitalization is mine

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/06/18/AR2006061800613.html

    The Bush administration, which is VOWING TO CRACK DOWN ON U.S, COMPANIES THAT HIRE ILLEGAL WORKERS, virtually abandoned such employer sanctions before it began pushing to overhaul U.S. immigration laws last year, government statistics show.

    BETWEEN 1999 AND 2003 WORK SITE ENFORCEMENT WAS SCALED BACK BY 95 PERCENT by the Immigration and Naturalization Service,
    The number of employers prosecuted for unlawfully employing immigrants dropped from 182 in 1999 to four in 2003, and fines collected declined from $3.6 million to $212,000, according to federal statistics.

    • American liberal

      John, if you’re saying they should crack down on those that hire illegals , I totally agree… I’ve got no problem with immigration but it must be legal…

  • American liberal

    Just another issue the Bush administration shoved down the road for President Obama to deal with….in my lifetime I’ve never seen a president that had more issues to deal with right out of the gate… My biggest complaint of president Obama is that he’s spent far to much time trying to work with and appease republicans…. They’ve already said they’re only agenda was to see President Obama fail.. Which means the republicans agenda is for America to fail…. From my point of view if the republican administration had just enforced the current laws then we wouldn’t have this problem…. Any employer that hires illegals should be fined… The real fact is the republican party just wants cheap labor… If they enforced the laws on the books we would have an immigration reform problem… If they didn’t get jobs they’d leave… That might be where I differ from both partys… I’ve got no problem with legal immigration…but hiring illegals is supposed to be a crime…Americans won’t pick fruit?.. BS… Pay at least minimum wage and those jobs will be filled… Same with construction…pay at least 10 dollars an hr and citizen take those jobs…Ronald Reagan created this problem when he granted amnesty to illegals…

    • John

      Well Said.

      The Bush administration repeated the mantra that illegals fill jobs that American worker do not want. However when there actually WAS a raid to boot illegal aliens, there was a line of Americans waiting to fill those jobs.

      http://www.parapundit.com/archives/003974.html

      Republicans are for cheap labor, they do not care how many US workers they displace!

    • jomama

      Nobody EXCEPT Ronald Reagan has EVER dealt with the illegal immigration issue. Everyone is too afraid to say no to these criminals. We might offend them. Oh no!! Everyone just lets it slide. I think our country has some kind of secret agreement with Mexico so they can support themselves (with drug money, money sent from illegal immigrants & criminal activities) in their third world country. In other words – they (Mexico) cannot survive without the open, unguarded border. I think that if that was NOT the case – something should have been done about it by now. Just an opinion…………….you know that OUR government is corrupt, right??

      • John

        “….you know that OUR government is corrupt, right??”

        YES BOTH PARTIES!!!!!

        Both parties are for big government also, just look how much the size of government grew from 2000-2008.

        Both parties are for big government giveaways – biggest difference is who gets those giveaways. Republicans basically opened the treasury and gave away America’s future to the rich and big corporations. After watching the republicans give 6 TRILLION to their supporters, the democrats now want to try the same thing and help out their supporters.

      • eyeswideopen

        Reagan granted amnesty to 3.2 million illegals. That was the easy way out at that time, as he had caused the Savings and Loan crisis, by allowing the deregulation of the Savings and Loans, he thought they would generate some tax money and keep the minimun wage low. Funny it took us until 1999 to get that debt paid off of 128Billion and the same year the repubs passed legislation to deregulate the Wall Street Crowd by repealing the Glass-Stegal Act. Ironic isn’t it? Guess we just don’t learn.

      I have debated long whether to even bother to respond on this forum which is more like a food fight between kids…Here goes. First, you (liberals) try to tell me you wouldn’t want to pay your employees the least amount you could in order to be profitable! The fact that the Government sides with big business and facilitates keeping wages down by importing Mexican labor is the issue. Actually Mexico is exporting IT’S unemployment, which was caused partly by our products being sold cheaper than theirs, thus killing their markets and impoverishing their people. They quite naturally head where the jobs are (were). All this back-and-forth about who is guilt of wrecking the country is BS…Just do a little history research and you will find that our economy AND the economy of other countries not to mention leaders and entire government have been shaped by something called “The Committee of 300, and the Club of Rome”. these people have been manipulating everyone for nearly the last 100 years. A Dr.John Coleman has written a book a few years ago detailing most of the chronology. The title is: The conspirator’s hierarchy-the committee of 300.pdf, and is available at scribd.com, which is an e-book read or upload site. All I can say is that it WILL open you eyes ans forever banish this tit-for-tat back and forth crap I’m seeing…..Its really tiresome AND unproductive!

    There can be no reform of any kind until we control the flow of illegal aliens into this country, First the fence must be built and visa overstays effictively monitored. Until then, we continue to get a hemorrhage of hundreds of thousands, including drug smugglers, human smugglers, terrorists and criminals.

  • American liberal

    The fense idea is nonsense and a total waste of money and resources…. As long as employers are giving illegals jobs they’re gonna climb the fense or tunnel under it… To stop illegal from coming you have to eliminate the reason they come here….enforce the laws aginst hiring illegals and no silly fense is needed….of course the fense was a republican idea… They love the cheap labor force..

    • Estoban

      Don’t be ridiculous. In California, along the stretch of completed double fence, all incurssions dropped 95%. Of course it works. It just doesn’t appeal t the left wing amnesty freaks.

    This is sad…. Sheeple do not realize the scope of this reform.
    In the current bill a National ID will be imposed on all US citizens as to prove who they are.. This card will be used in conjuction with the health care, also it will be used as a purchasing tool in order to buy food.. Read Revelations people!!! I for one will chose death before a so called ID card..

    • Warrior

      Raggs,
      As big as the ID issue is, just as important if not more is amnesty for illegals. The health bill is set up to accomodate the influx of illegals obtaining amnesty.

        Yes I know this…. Amnesty is the only way to keep the usurpers in power.

    Obama and the dreamers cannot create a job, we will have more job losses, government jobs don’t count since they creat nothing , but cost tax payers. I’m still waiting for someone to tell me a government programs that has stayed on budget, and have not expanded 4 times the original cost. As of today, you dems should be pround,we rank with Zimbobwe for having become a highest rate of debt nation in one year. As to the giddyness of health care bill, why isn’t the President, Congress, their children and spouses, their staffs, and all the beltway rats all exempt from this healthcare BS? Haven’t seen or heard one jackass agree to be on this healthcare plan, also why is it not installed in 2 years if it is so good? I don’t think you can find a positive government program, of course they are all EU socialist plans. Next will be the EU vat taxes.

    • Raggs

      Simple…This is supposed to be yet another good for you bill in which in truth it will take your freedom and inslave you to the government.. And naturally the very ones making this a law will be exempt… In other words they think they are above the law since they wrote it.. obama believes he is God and he cannot be touched… Amnesty for the illegals and soon he will do away with presidental term limits.

        We definitely need to put God back into our Country.

  • Senior lady

    I wonder if all the Dems. and liberals realize that out of every dollar the US spends, 46 Cents is borrowed from China or another country. Would you run your personal finances this way? Maybe the past Senators and Reps. helped run this bill up but with the housing and banking bubbles we now ALL know we have overspent. Do we keep spending or do we slow down? The reason there was no cooperation between Reps. and Dems. on Health Care Bill was brcause the Dems. wrote the bill and would not let the Reps. in till the last min. and there were so many lies from the liberals. We have heard how bad our health care system here in the USA is so BAD!! Do you know that Canada spends over 1 million $$$$ to US hospitals every year because their system can’t handle some of these problems? Did you know that? Well no, you have listened to the lies and believed them. What other lies do you still believe. Like how much money this bill will SAVE? Do you realize each tax payer in this country would have to pay a tax bill of $110,00.00 each year to bring the budget under control? I doubt it, you liberals want the gov. to pay for everything, well, I am a tax payer and I am tired of paying your bills while you sit back and complain.

    Subject: FW: Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    As a widow of a military retiree, who stood with her husband for over 20 years while he served this country (which was the greatest in the world until this Congress and President took over), I have to say I agree. Shirley

    As a retired military man that have given over twenty-seven years of my life to my country, I truly feel that what this
    Country needs most is a new amendment to the Constitution . I am recommending that we add the 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come, Jim.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Congressman, Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman. Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

    This 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES Will apply to all passed, present and future
    congressman, Senators And Representatives.
    Just think of all the money this action would save ehe tax payer!!!!

      What laws are different for congressmen or congresswomen that are different than the laws that effect you?? This is a bogus far right bullshit, why is it right now several congressmen are in jail for crimes committed while in office. Your post is all BS and will never even pass in congress much less in any state. Do something productive!!

    Senior Lady,
    Save your fingers these goofballs have probably never worked, never will so they are partying about this bill. At least, that is, till the bill is overturned, and it will be!!! then they will have to back to borrowing from mommie and daddy!!!

    • eyeswideopen

      JoeH, if they own all the business’ as you all claim, then they are the only ones working and you repubs are the lazy none paying leeches. LMAO

  • Raggs

    I wonder if ACORN will morph into a immigration control party since they are so called disbanning?… It should fit very well into thier agenda of supporting prostitution for illegal minors.

    • Dennis

      They already have.

  • Jo

    I say fight a thief on their own level. Let them get Amnesty. Then they can work, pay exorbitant taxes that the hc bill will create, we can stay home and be the blood suckers they have been. They could not make it in their own country and are so used to being trampled on that they think it is normal. Mexico is a rich country if only their wealth was redistributed and used fairly but no it is easier to destroy our way of life – why work hard if you don’t have to. Illegal’s will never understand what we as legal citizens have lost in the way of freedom and rights and that by allowing Amnesty they will never know.

    • Joe H.

      No Amnesty!! We don’t have enough jobs to go around now 30 million more competeing for the good jobs, which is exactly what they will do as soon as they are legal!!!!

  • Ellen

    On that 28th amanment, I hope that includes presidents too? One one is any better than another!

  • http://gmail Raindancer

    Acorn, will have a new name as yet to be exposed. They will have the same group running the show, and still voting Chicago style. Vote often and vote for late uncle Ruffus. Acorn or what ever new name are back to getting tax money again and are in next years budget. I still cann’t beleive the num skulls that beleive this health care is a great thing. Canadian friends have been coming down here for years, to have treatments, and think nothing about having to pay out of pocket to get treated. After you are 65, you had better not want to get cataract surgery or a hip replacement, you will wait for up to a year or more. These I still don’t see how a Dem can say that they love their country, all the fecal material that comes out their pie holes is always knocking the USA. Omoron isn’t an American he is a transplant. His college papers show he was a muslim and was an Indonesian. Of course it is a way to void our Constitution. O’moron has said the Constitution is not in the 21st century. All dems and the young iodiots that got him elected will get a rude awakening in 5=10 years. But being mush brains they will alway be socialists as they love the life style. There will not be any new meds research spending for the market, or new diseases. Health management, die by neglect!!!

    • Joe H.

      Raindancer,
      If you know anyone in Ohio, tell them to tell all they know to vote out Sherrod Brown!!! he is a staunch supporter of the healthcare bill got an answer to my E-mail I sent a week ago!!! Make these socialist thinking wasted flesh kiss their jobs good bye!!!

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest John

    1) Beware of the industrial military Complex (Dwight D.)
    2) No taxation without representation (Revolution)
    3) True transparent government ( no back-room deals)
    4) No special interest funds or campaign funds hidden due to lies told to college students and elderly about how the government will be run
    5) mandated term limits
    6) any social programs be run by independent closely monitored academic agencies non governmental controlling expenditures
    7) any politician found to be in conflict with any campaign promises made be impeached and thrown out of office no exceptions
    8) Flat tax imposed for every citizen
    9) Illegals be exported well fair recipients made to fill the jobs left open and English be mandatory
    10)Corporations that receive federal funds made to find jobs for out of work Americans
    11) Terrorist be dealt expeditiously and without the benefits of the country they terrorizing Bill of Rights
    12)Bring truth in contracting to all of our government agencies IE DOD SS, IRS, FDA, and all the other agencies.
    I think if we as a country were to impose at lest some of these we would be fine as a country and our economy would be in good shape.
    Just so you people and I refer to the left leaning ones remember The shape of the government under Carter and the only reason we had a balanced budget under your boy Clinton is we were riding high on the tech wave and all the jobs it created here in this country The right had control of the house and the senate to keep him somewhat in check. We do not have the big employment wave to create jobs and increase the tax base. So God forbid the budget now. The European countries, the Japanese and other countries are in no shape to finance our debits except the Chinese so lets not let our worthless heads of State piss them off or we will be in deep sh_t.
    Thats my story and I’m sticking with it!!!

    • Joe H.

      John,
      Really liked that #9!!!! Keep up the good work!! By the way, I liked ALL of them just nine caught real close to home here!!! I live in Ohio and just 12 miles to the east of me is a sanctuary city!!!

    • eyeswideopen

      John, best part, which you didn’t highlight enough was that the two enormus tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 totalling 1.2 trillion dollars of lost revenue is why this country is in such a mess. Long live the republicans mantra of “Cut taxes”. You people just had bad, bad timing considering we were at war. Common sense is something you need to test your reps for. In this case they failed terribly, but hey the rich did get richer, so something positive did happen.

      • Dennis

        LMFAO Your so blind

  • eddie47d

    Mexico is a rich country in many ways. It’s a beautiful country with many resources but too many of it’s land owners and corrupt politicians refuse to address the poverty issue. The richest man in the world ( Carlos Slim) lives there,so there is wealth. The resort areas are a bonanza for many and I have been throughout Mexico manytimes. What a shame that they can’t do better.

    • Earlw

      The Illegals coming across the border are Mexico’s “Negroes” or “Chinese coolies”(check your history)Or “Irish”, Mostly Indian/Mestizo/illiterate/untrained,etc. Those who have large families so as to have a modicum of “RETIREMENT” when they grow old. Mexico would rather Help them sneak into the US rather than work on equal opportunity for their own people….

  • Jo

    The one good thing that may come out of this is that we will know who is illegal and names will be listed.
    If Amnesty goes through, testing on their understanding of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and learning about what drove our founding fathers to take such action should be mandatory. This however must include our own children do the same since we were asleep and all this was taken out of our schools. No wonder we are in such a mess.

  • sabre’

    Almost every Democrat that originally voted NO on the obamacare, changed their vote after leaving the oval office for a private meeting or after exiting air force 1, and had just had a private meeting there!!
    Transparency??????????? More like Mafia tactics if you ask me!

    Now that obamacare has passed, he is back on the road to tell people why they want it. !!!!???????

    He has just spent the entire last 2 years on the campaign trail.
    First to GET elected.
    Next to PUSH obamacare down our throats!
    NOW to tell us how good it will feel since he got his way!

    I believe he does not want to sit in the oval office and BE a president, he only likes to go out with his tele-prompter and talk and get applause!

  • sabre’

    I believe ALL of these ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS should be out protesting EVERY DAY! They do need rights.

    JUST NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY!!!!

    • LJR

      They come here because they are too scared to do it in their own country but then they think they have the right to complain here? Go back and make your country better and quit ruining ours.

      • Joe H.

        LJR,
        They know in their own country they would be shot, disappear, or jailed for life!!! Thet are cowards tho so they demonstrate here where they know nothing will happen to them!!!!

        • Earlw

          When the economy in this country collapses, and the going REALLY gets tough. the same thing MAY start happening here, although that would be against the grain of most Americans……Desperate people may do desperate thing…………….

  • eddie47d

    I want less government but some of your lazy rantings certainly aren’t brightening up your light bulbs.Some of us middle of the roaders listen to libertarians and republicans argue that our capitalist system will fix things. Let the free enterprise system be! Well we wouldn’t have had the bank failures if these free wheelers had wathed our back sides. Instead of loading up their pockets. We wouldn’t have had the mortgage collaspe if they had been minding the store. Too many people were making too much money and our capitalist system wouldn’t step in and correct this gouging or is that gorging! You know,most of us get played like a fiddle by both sides. In the case of immigration it was the capitalist homebuilders who brought in illegals.Big farms brought in their share of cheap labor. We the American people weren’t good enough for these jobs or the capitalist system so the middle class became expendable. There are many sides to blame for the messes we get ourselves into but you all seem one sided. It’s unfortunate that business mess up when they get greedy and that government ends up stepping in. Maybe that’s not right but calling Obama a monkey and a rat,ect. only drives people away from you insane comments. Obama certainly didn’t create the immigration problem.

    • Michael J.

      Eddie47d,
      Your right, Obama didn’t create the illegal immigration problem, he’s one of them.

    • Earlw

      Capitalism in it’s pure sense would work just fine…..It’s the corrupt individuals in the capitalist system that screw it up for the rest, and yes that includes capitalists in government!

  • Raggs

    Everyone is seeing Mexicans as the only illegals… This is not true folks… How many Muslim immigrants are in this country trying to destoy it from the inside?… The radical extremist that have inflitrated this country and go under the guise of ACORN, SEIU, Planned parenthood, The Tides foundation and many others. Most of these organizations are being funded by our tax monies via obama. Naturally this is obamas plan to destroy our freedom and the constitution. Gaining votes through amnesty for the illegals is not the only agenda on the table!

    • Hugh Jordin

      LA has a huge illegal population from Israel… not just Hispanics. many of these Israelis are involved with organized crime. We need to do something about ALL illegals… let’s stop using the euphemism “undocumented” and call them what they are.

      • Michael J.

        Hugh Jordin,
        Amen to that. Let’s start at the the top, the oval office.

    • Joe H.

      Raggs,
      A few years back, the prime minister of Ireland asked Bush to “Go Easy” on the illegal Irish that are here!! That just proves what you say is true!!!

  • http://N/A Kenny

    Rolando is right on with his comment that this president is full of B/S ! It’s morons like WC that helped get this idiot elected in the first place ! This clown and his communist extremist administration primary goal is to change this country from a democracy that has survived for 234 years as our founding fathers originally set forth in the Declaration of Independence ! Now all of a sudden this is worth shelving to move to a far left extreme into socialism ! I believe nothing this fool says out of his lying mouth when he opens it ! He loves to hear himself talk and believes that his way is the only way ! Enjoy the next 8 months Obama because there’s going to be a huge backlash to this forced sham of a health care bill , democrats will be sent home in droves after the mid-term elections ( Reid , Pelosi , Stupak ) and the rest of the spineless democrats or should I say coining a new name for these spineless politicians ( democorrupts ), then we will see how much success this socialistic extremist has with a republican controlled house and senate ! Wake up America , before it’s too late !!!

    • LJR

      Kenny, I agree! And to those who blamed Bush for the past 8 years, you can’t blame him because there were mostly Democrats in office and they are the ones who made him look bad by not backing him up.

  • Boo Ewald Taylor, IL

    I don’t know where to start and I’m tired of all the unAmerican things that have been going on in DC. So I’ll not slam misinformed bloggers who don’t know what the hell they are talking about. But I must say Reagan did NOT create 3 trillion in debt, he fixed the financial mess Jimmy Carter (who knew he hated the Israelis, fooled me thought he was a nice old guy, WRONG)left behind. One thing I want to know regarding ACORN, one of those undercover videos that aired on FOX, the woman that said she had planned her husband’s murder, making it look like she had been battered and was defending herself, does anyone rememer that? Only in ACORN.

    • Hugh Jordin

      How about the reprehensible Tea Party bozos that were spitting on a Parkinson’s victim over the weekend, throwing dollar bills at him, calling him a freeloader because he supported health care reform (he was dropped from his plan when he was diagnosed)? This is American behavior?

      I bet they considered themselves good Christians, too, but it is clear that they don’t grasp the basic precepts of Jesus’ teachings.

      The make conservatives look bad.

        Hugh Jordin,
        What did you think of the two SEIU goons that attacked a man selling “Don’t tread on me” T-Shirts at a Tea Party rally? Were these actions a good example of Jesus’s teachings? Check it out, click on the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTXBOgPCh9w

        The truth is that conservatives are being intentionally provoked by daily unconscienable assaults on their freedoms and their pride in an effort to produce a violent response.

        • eyeswideopen

          Michael, intentionally provoked?. Quinnipiac poll results: 88% white,
          74% Republicans. Breakdown of the tea partiers. If the dems were doing what the tea party and repubs are doing, you radicals would be all over the place trying to get pay back. Once again, you have representatives who can’t control themselves while in the House doing the peoples business. “Baby Killer” shouted to another pro-lifer? Arrogrant and demeaning.

  • LJR

    Can you tell me why we have and Immigration Dept. when they are letting anyone in? Everybody needs to come in by due process but this country does not have to accept everyone who applies. Look at Ellis Island, they turned away those who were ill and those who did not have anything unique to offer to this country. Also, we are not suppose to allow too many of one culture or of ethnic background in at a time but a certain percentage of each to be equal, making it fair for each ethnicity and as not to allow their culture to take over what our forefathers set forth for this nation.

    • LJR

      And also, no anchor babies if their parents were illegal then so are they. Those who have come here and lived off of us should be sent back with nothing. Take away their homes and their bank accounts. They came with nothing and should leave the same way. Maybe this would discourage them from comming in and make it retro-active including the ones that had amnesty if they could.

  • LJR

    Now is the time for ALL GOOD PEOPLE (PATRIOTIC AMERICANS) to come to the aid of their country! Who agrees with this? We need those who want to restore this country to its original framing. We do not need to remodel it but bring it back to its orginality!

    your comment sounds like plain old bs!, i doubt very much if this is true. i can understand the democrats wanting to start this kind of rumor to downplay the tea party, they fear the power thats starring them in the face. it this did happen and i doubt it did, it was a plant by the progressives, this is the way the communist operate.

    American Liberal: I asked you before if you are a Naturalized American but did not get an answer.

    I agree and disagree with both sides on issues. You have to keep an open mind about things. Some of the data provided in the blogs are most likely not as correct as you would think since the Federal Government has a history of bending the statistics to provide a good or bad picture, depending on what they wish to accomplish. Recent history also shows that several corporations had a problem with the truth. When your combine them together, we have the serious problems we are facing now.
    It is not a Democrat or Republican issue, it is the corrupt Congress and incompetent administrations that refused to acknowledge what was going to happen. They were warned in 2004 but dismissed the issue.

  • http://www.dunstabzugshaube-profi.de Safemoney

    I’m an American living the last 24 years in Germany and am shocked that that America would ever have a president like Obama! How can people be so blind? From Bush to Obama is like going from Bad to Worse. He may be pulling the troops out of Irak but he’s sending more to Afganistan.He passed an unbelievably health care package that the majority didn’t want
    and will cause major problems. The only thing he can do is talk. He has nothing to offer, loves perverts, is a muslim, and the constitution means nothing to him.It’s like being married to the devil!!I don’t care if he is black, green, orange or purple this guy has to be the worst president that america has ever had!!

    • Dennis

      I agree 1000%

  • Jo

    I don’t get it. Most of the jobs went to Mexico, so why do they want to come here? Could it be because they have very little rights there?

    • eyeswideopen

      Jo, you peaked my interest, so here are some facts I just read. Literacy rate is 97% they are rated 24th in world. Corruption index is 89 out of 180, They will have Universal Healthcare by 2011, they are almost there now, are fine tuning it,healthcare costs are lower and prescription drugs are cheaper. Very strong fiscal market, as they did reforms in 1994 and 2001. They have social security. There are over one million US citizens living in Mexico. It is considered the 11th largest economy in the world. They also have an immigration problem. The biggest problem they have is economic disparity of incomes. 32% of population receives 55% of income. They produce more cars than the US or Canada and are known for the high quality. Maybe they will stop coming as this country is in worse shape with our: infrastructure(highways, bridges, electric, waterways, levies,) education, energy, tax structure, manufacturing, imports, Wall Street regulations, and corrput politicians. I don’t know why they come here either. They must be the ones who can’t find work, and that is why they will take anything they can get in this country. Why do you think over a million Americans live there?

The working parts are classified as intake and exhaust systems, simple reversal operations. Will work standing on hands or feet, systems work in the up or down position, out come still the same.

  • http://none philip biggins

    Once you folks realize the truth, that big banking interests control both Democrats and Republicans alike, then you will see the reality of this, supposed, “Democracy”. That is why NONE of the promises Obama stated will be instituted, UNLESS he is directed to do so by his boss and mentor, Henry Kissinger and associated banking. He may well need the votes in the future, so immigration reform is a possibility, unfortunately. Letting people push their way into the “front of the line’ by even suggesting that illegals should be considered is rediculous and will encourage more of the same illegal activities, while penalizing those who have legally applied for citizenship. .

    Philip: Exactly. You must have experience on the inner workings of government. As I said before there are a group of people that have a strong influence on what goes down in the capitol and they are not appointed or elected officials.

    Regarding illegals: They want to give rights to people who entered this country illegally and work without due recourse yet any American citizen who has been in jail for a non-violent crime can’t find a job.
    What is wrong with this picture?

  • Mark

    Easy fix. Deport the SOBs, all of them, including their supporters. Those that won’t leave, shoot them. All the millions saved can be spent on our vets, elderly, and homeless. Including American children that are not anchor babies. If you wanna squirt’em out, squirt’em out elsewhere.

  • http://us-immigration-reform.org/ Immigrant kid

    It fits our needs perfectly the advantage of immigration reform on the country: Greater supply of unskilled workers, a younger workforce, and skilled workers in needed sectors. But there is also a disadvantage of immigration reform like Greater poverty, more educational cost, lower unskilled wage levels, and increased danger of terrorism. Thanks to the post!
