Pelosi Asks The Catholic Church To Embrace Immigration Reform

May 12, 2010 by  

Pelosi asks the Catholic Church to embrace immigration reformWhile speaking at the Nation’s Catholic Community conference last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pleaded with religious leaders to "instruct" their followers to support immigration reform, according to Fox News.

Pelosi, who is Catholic, told the group of sisters, priests and activists that the church will play an important in shaping the future political landscape.

"The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me … say, ‘We want you to pass immigration reform,’ and I said, I want you to speak about it from the pulpit," Pelosi told the audience.

"Some [who] oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews, and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels," she added.

Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer denied Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) request last week that she delay the implementation of the state’s new immigration law. Just a day earlier, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Refugees asked the governor to hold off on enforcing the law for one year so Congress could work on developing a federal immigration proposal.

    Pelosi is no more Catholic than Obama is a Christian! These libs try so hard to pretend to be Christians and they are far from it! How dare she stand there and demand that the priests tell their parishes how to think and what to do on any subject. The lefties are always screaming SEPARATION of Church and State so what the hell is she doing here? Talk about your mega hypocrites! If Pelosi is a true practicing Catholic then I’m a Monkey’s Uncle! I’m a Catholic and it sickens me to see her talk about my faith and drag it through the sewers like she does. What a lying BIT.. she is. What Gall!!!!!!

    • Colo43

      amen- well said and the truth!

    • OrlandoRican

      Well said. Why doesn’t Mrs. Pelosi ask the Catholic Church to step up their opposition to abortion? Let’s just pray for her. No doubt she will be re-elected. Hopefully the Republicans will gain a majority in the House and we will get a new Speaker. Hopefully!

      • http://aol Isabel Erostegui

        Nancy Pelosi should not use the religious leaders to support her crazy ideas. Mrs. Pelosi what church do you go to?

        • Time

          Isabel,
          I am sure Mrs. PigOsee attends the church of The Holy Self Importance.
          LOL…

          • kate8

            Time, that’s a good one!

            I remember her saying awhile back that her San Francisco diocese was different than the more conventional catholicism. Just being in San Francisco places them on desecrated ground.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Isabel,
          The church is supposed to teach the word of God not politics. I have said this all my life and I say it now. Church officials: Stick to the word of God not politics of the day!!!

          • Chief Castro

            Dear Joe: To quote Edmond Burke “Evil only triumphs when good men do nothing”. W have lost a lot of our freedom because we stayed out of politics, guess what politics have not stayed away trom the churches, they have tried to muffle discent by using the so called wall of separation, but when they need help to further their agenda they use anything and anybody, I spent most of my adult life opposing oppressive goverments all over the world and I be dammned if I let them take over my country without a fight!!! WAKE UP!!!

          • Lewis Munn

            However, the Word of God applies to politics as well as any other life activity.

            If politics is good, it will agree with the statements in the Bible on conduct, and if she is good her actions will be in full conformance with what Jesus said and directed.

      • AZ

        How will we get a new Speaker if she is re elected as you say? Should you not have said “not re elected.”?

        • Barb

          AZ, San Franciscans will more than likely continue to vote Pelosi in unfortunately. What we need is to have a landslide vote in November and get the majority of Conservatives in the house then Pelosi could not be speaker any longer because her party would no longer be in power! It would be a WIN, WIN situation to say the least!

          • Mike

            AZ is a conservative state, they are not going to vote a lib into office.

          • Time

            Mike – PigOsee is from Calie, not AZ.

        • Beepster

          IF, by a long shot, the Repubs gain control of the house, she will no longer be Speaker. Realizing where she’s from, there’s a 99% chance she will be re-elected. Socialists vote for socialists.

          • Stan B

            If plastic face is re-elected, I’m moving out of the USA, her, and Harry boy, and CHUCKY SHUMAR are the three biggest progessive commies, and Obumma the MUSLIN, should be tried for treason…..

        • http://aol wayne a

          she said hopefully the rep. will win back enough seats in the house,if they do she will not be the majority speaker of the house any longer,it would be a republican.

      • angel-wanna-be

        Orlandorican, thats right, God says pray for enemies first!

    • CJ

      It is beyond belief how one group (left wing) can continuously use dual standards and nobody is heard speaking against it. Although Pelosi’s act is not against the Constitution’s intended purpose of the 1st Ammendment, it slaps in the face of their interpretation. She should have just asked the church to consider giving up God and recognizing a worldly common power (her maybe) instead. Where did these people get power to silence truth and persuade people to discount common sense? How have people become so gullible?

      • Fed Up Gal in NM

        CJ,

        I agree with you. Sad to say, but many people seem to be willing to vote the devil him (or herself) in, when they think there’s something in it for them. Granted, there are exceptions…but for the most part Conservatives are typically blasted by the Left for being steadfast in their beliefs….when those criticizing the conservatives sit in the same churches and pretend while in church…then go into public with their cronies and do or say exactly opposite of what they just supposedly prayed about. The only thing that seems pretty obvious is that they must be willing to “fit in” at any and all costs. I think I would have more respect for them if they were just honest and open….regardless of whether I would agree…at least they would be honest then.

      • James

        CJ, Confusion arises from the long-time basic belief that all humans had a common origin (Adam and Eve) or the oldest know human discovered (the Black African ‘Eve’). With this common-origin belief, it’s only natural that one would want “immigration reform.” What they mean by that is the dissolution of all national borders and all racial barriers between mankind. As long as this common origin thinking prevails, further interracial mixing is inevitable.

    • Pearl Tom

      You say your are a Catholic (Christian) and then you call her a Bit….
      Interesting.

      • Lewis Munn

        You have some confusion there. Catholics and Christians are two different peoples and two different philosophies. Two different religions.

        Christians follow the New Testament of the Bible as necessary and sufficient to know God. Catholics put Mary, and the pope, and several other saints between man and God, contrary to Christian beliefs.

        Catholics say you pray to Mary, or a saint, but Christians pray to God Himself, not a lesser created being.

        Catholics say men, priests, can forgive sins; Christians say only God can forgive sins. Catholics usually make money for forgiving sins, while Christians say there is no charge because God does it, not men!

        Oodles more differences, but they are NOT the same and the Pope speaks for Catholics only, not for Christianity.

        Please do not confuse the two!! Note the Catholics have to have a Bible translation much later than the Christian Bible, and containing texts of less certain origin to support their faith and practices.

        Those who call the two faiths one are simply not correct.

        • libertytrain

          While I can appreciate your opinion – I must say, in all my years, I don’t recollect ever being told a Catholic has to pay money for confessing his sins — wherever did you get that fable from?

  • Barb Bokus

    Where does Nancy Pelosi get off requesting anything from the Catholic church? She is pro-abortion. Why would the Catholic church give Pelosi a forum to talk on any subject? How can they still consider her a Catholic? Lot’s of hypocrisy here.

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      Barb B,

      You’re right on target. I just hope the Catholic church does not cave in on this one.

      • libertytrain

        Fed Up – Remember, the Catholic Church is quite large and worldly and has absolutely no dependence on the US Congress, Senate or President. Whatever the dimwit broad tries to do in her own parish means nothing or if that parish goes against the Mother Church is a different matter. There have always been people everywhere, whether they are politicians, nuns, priests, whomever, that somehow have created a delusion that they are above the laws of the Church or the land – and while the land may waiver now and then, the Church, at least in my lifetime, has been pretty steadfast, i.e. priests can’t marry, abortion is wrong, etc. And I do recall she was severely chastised last year by the Bishop for her stand on abortion.

        • James

          Libertytrain, The law of the land (U.S. law) says abortion is not murder because until one is “born…in the United States” one is not a “citizen” (14th Amendment), and until one is a citizen, s/he has no rights. The Catholic position is that killing a fetus is murder, but our Supreme Court is bound by the U.S. Constitution, not the church. Pelosi is Catholic but she is bound lawfully by the U.S. Consititution which she took an oath to uphold and defend.

          • libertytrain

            I didn’t question that at all so am confused by your reply. Pelosi doesn’t have any right to attempt to use her political “clout” to attempt to “influence” the Catholic Church – whether she claims to be Catholic or not -

    • Tony

      I was born Catholic and just watching what has been happening in the church lately i believe it is conceivable they will endorse BULLosie and the rest of Oscumbo’s liberal/socialist agenda. Unfortunately.

      • libertytrain

        Tony, you are right about the some portion of the Catholic Church in the US may follow Pelosi “Doctrine” but the rest of the world or shall I say the Catholic Church as a whole has no interest in following the Pelosi “Doctrine.” We tend to forget that the US is just a small part of the whole Catholic Church.

  • Richard Nicoletti

    Nancy Pelosi is a Catholic like I’m a gorilla. She embraces nothing that the Catholic church believes. I’m not a Catholic, but I’ve taught in a Catholic school and know that the church is deadly set against abortion, which Nancy Pelosi would love to see the church change its mind about. How dare she say that she is a Catholic. Why because she is registered with a church? If I live in a garage does that make me a car? You are what you believe.

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      Richard N,

      Great analogy! She spends much of her work life in Congress, so I would say that alone makes her at least a “suspect”.

  • Ilse Spaulding

    I thought the churches were not ALLOWED to instruct their members on political matters??? The churches would lose their exemption status if they preach “political” from the pulpit!!! I hope they do and we need to be prepared to report them to the IRS!! How about that Pelosi?
    I also agree with the above statements that she is no more a Catholic than Obama is a christian. Isn’t it it interesting that he and Michelle have not attended church since the election!!

    • OrlandoRican

      Churches can instruct their members on LIBERAL political matters. This is another example of the double standard that exists in our country – LIBERAL = good; CONSERVATIVE = evil.

      • Time

        Orlando,

        Great point! Good post.

      • Ilse Spaulding

        Oh yeah, you are right. The double standard makes me physically sick! But fear not, God is still in charge here and he will bless his people if they will only turn from evil and maybe this is just the kind of thing to make people realize how wrong they have been.

      • Lewis Munn

        Churches can and many do instruct their members on what their “Book” says, as relates to life and real situations. Even Islaam!

        When you shut of religion and say keep it to the church interior, you are demanding the religions to not affect society, which is contrary to the direct orders in most religions and especially Christianity.

        It is NOT contrary to most churchianity. However, Muslims say to kill or enslave those who will not convert!

  • William Hatter

    Hopefully Pelosi will never step foot in a McDonalds, for she would surely turn into a hamburger. I suprised that she was even able to verbalize such hypocrisy without chocking. I’m am able to continue on in the middle of all this septic environment, for I am convinced GOD will have the last say, and that HE will have it soon if we stand by our convictions, and are not silent.

  • Pig Pelosi

    NO INCUMBENTS IN 2010 or 2012!!!!!!!

    PIG PELOSI IS A PRIME EXAMPLE AS TO WHY ALL INCUMBENTS MUST GO!!!!!

    Let this be a lesson to all of the newly elected. If you EVER think that you are going to be allowed to act like this perversion of the human race, then We, The people, will make certain that your tenure in office will be made as short as WE< THE PEOPLE, can make it!

    NO INCUMBENTS IN 2010 or 2012!!!!!! VOTE THEM ALL OUT!!!!!

    CAREER POLITICIANS MUST GO!!!!!!

  • Ken

    What a disgrace. If this were a Republican asking the church to push their agenda from the pulpit it would be the lead story on ever network news broadcast in the country. Is Fox News now the only place we can go for the truth? I saw the clip and was disgusted. Nancy should be asking the church to pray for her soul because of her stance on abortion. Nancy, you don’t get to pick and choose the parts of the bible you want to support, just because you believe it will help get you more votes. I can’t wait to see this Wicked Witch of the West turn over her gavel and be sent packing.

    The one good thing that I believe will come from this congress and the Obama presidency is the fact that after November 2010 and November 2012 I will never have to see another Democrat controlled congress or another Democrat president running our country. That is if there is a country left after this bunch gets finished with it. We all have seen what you can do and we don’t like it.

    • Pearl Tom

        Both together have made a wonderful demonstration of what NOT to do.

        And we are working on another wonderful bad example again.

  • 45caliber

    Pelousy is a “cafeteria Catholic”. In other words, she picks and chooses which things to believe. For instance, she believes in abortion – something the Catholic Church abhors. She was even told by the Pope himself that abortion is wrong and she ignored him. How the Catholics here can even listen to her, I don’t know. Her only concern about the illegals here is getting them to be Democrat voters. She couldn’t care less about their status in their home countries and she couldn’t care less about the Americans who are out of work and begging for any kind of job to pay their bills.

    • Regina

      It’s all crazy. She wants voters but we want to protect jobs and prevent our taxes from going any higher. Once they come into the country their children have the highest drop out rate (close to 50% now) and end up on welfare further dragging down the economy. This Obama-nation is making me sick. I do not qualify for any of the billions he has spent but my hard-working tax dollars are being shoveled out faster than ever to those who refuse to work. I’m about ready to move to Canada…but the taxes there are crazy too.

  • Faithbeliever

    What happened to the separation of church and state? I guess to suit her agenda it’s okay. People in this woman’s district should realize what she really is. A hypocrite. Any church that starts to preach what this self centered politician says should lose their non-profit status due to the fact it is promoting her political agenda.

    • 63rdpatriot

      There is NO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!!!! That is a flat out lie. All the laws based on this concept are unconstitutional.That is no where in our constitution. That was written in a letter and the context of that was there was to be no state run church like England had. Our forefathers wrote and believed that or government cannot exist without God.

      • Nancy

        You are absolutely right! Our Country’s foundation was based on the Bible. In the 20′s 30′s and 40′s, our History Books were RE-WRITTEN removing our Christian principles and making $$$$ – the economy the focus of our beliefs. How on earth can you RE-WRITE HISTORY!! Again, it was accomplished by a FEW atheists! We need to fight to regain the TRUTH ….. AND KEEP “IN GOD WE TRUST” as our motto!

        Have you noticed what has happened in our schools since THEY removed God…..guns…..do ya thinks He’s mad???

        • Lewis Munn

        Seriously, our constitution says, “Freedom of religion” not “Freedom from religion.” Maybe the leftists could learn to read and actually take a peek at the constitution they say they hold so dear.

  • S.A. Hillcrest

    Wow, what more needs to be added to the denouncement of Queen Pelosi’s comments except one thing…I am not Catholic, but had the opportunity to rear my daughter with their assistance through Catholic schools and later graduate from a Catholic university. One thing I did learn is when the Sisters speak about things political, look for the twinkle in their eyes. I think inviting her to speak was an excellent set-up by the church to demonstrate her true colors. Well done, folks.

  • Cynthia Wellman

    Not only is she a disgrace to the catholic faith, she is a digrace to our nation as speaker of the house. If Washington did their job, perhaps the state of Arizona would be feeling safer today. My thought about illegal immigrants and those here legally…it is like owning a radar detector for speed tickets..if you aren’t speeding in the first place, you wouldn’t even need it . If you are legally in the states, you shouldn’t have concerns of being asked. If a police officer ever asks me for proof of US citizenship..I would thank him for caring for our nations welfare…which all people of all races & are US citizens should do.. thank him for being concern for our safety and financial welfare. Shame on Pelosi and the Obama adfministration for not supporting the states with such serious immigration concerns..and it is many now.

    • Tony

      Go girl!!

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    So where is the media on this? No outcry of separation of church and state? And the left wonders why it appears that the media is in their pocket? What an outrage!

    • Barb

      Robin, right on except they don’t appear to be in the Left’s pockets anymore the media now IS OBVIOUSLY in their pockets! Amazing how fast they sold out, sure hope they get to spend their Judas money but I doubt it, Obama will take that from them just like he’s taking everyone’s money!

      • Regina

        Well, not everyone’s money. Did you check out his bailout package when he first took office? Of $870 billion he gave $8.7 billion to planned parenthood. Funny, I didn’t realize they were such an integral part of our economy. He is paying back all his campaign supporters. It’s all a load of crap. I’m with the people who said to vote out all incumbents but the sheep of our country (and those on government assistance) will never do that.

  • http://www.zeerok.com Luis T

    Not unusual for Pelosi et all to persue the sanctuary set amongst the poor and the sheople. This is pure Saul Alinsky. The church for socialists is just a means to and end. A better example of an apostate couldn’t be more obvious, and Pelosi certainly fits that bill.

  • Paul Z.

    She is one to talk to the Catholic Church. Pelosi is pro-abortion and believes in separation of church and state, except for her political agenda, then anything goes. She is hell bent on one-party rule and socialism and using the church to attain her goal is disgusting. I go to church to pray, not to be indoctrinated.

  • horseyguy

    I am a Christian so I am wondering about seperation of Church & State We should be praying for all of them, I’m not saying that we should like what they do ” We can vote them out of office ” God know how they are so lets not call them bad name, that just make the Christian’s look bad. Praise God always. Love Jesus always.

    • 45caliber

      Separation of Church and State basically became something the STATE wants. They want any Christian out of the state’s business. It wasn’t intended to be that way originally. Our Founding Fathers insisted that good Christians should be the ones in office making decisions since they would more likely make decisions based on what is best for the country and not for themselves. But it is a convenient cry when some politician is caught with his hand in the till or in someone else’s pants. The First Amendment does not state there should be a separation of church and state as the politicians want you to think. It states that there shall not be a government church to prevent others from worshipping as they prefer.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        45caliber,
        How much separation of church and state is there when Muslims can pray in a school or state building if they wish? If there are foot baths installed in state colleges? When Muslims can wear their burkahs in school, state buildings, and even court???

      • Lewis Munn

        Absolutely.

        Soon as the government forbids worship, or directs how it may be done, or penalizes you for your religious convictions, we are on a very slippery slope.

        The Dark Ages came from having one and only one Government church.

        We seem to be headed this way; it may be the Green Church. And we worship the sun at the base of a Wind Turbine. And Science and History will be changed to fit. Orwellian style.

  • C Lee

    I keep reading everything I can about whats going on with the polititions in this country today, not protecting our boarders sideing with outsiders against its own citizens screaming about seperation of church and state then directing the church from the white house to preach propoganda to its people. Now I hear that the govt is going to take over the internet just like the commies in china did( maybe since we owe china so much money their ready to collect our souls, thats what happens when you make a deal with the devil) On top of all of this the march by this so called administration to to destroy the very fabric of our constitution is well under way. there are so many things that this band of thieves are doing I could sit here all day and still not list them all so here is my question to anyone who feels they have a solution, how are we going to save our country from those who are on the fast track to destroying it. I keep hearing examples of the destruction but no solutions to stopping it. I am retired so I have lived a fruitfull life.I have faced many things in my life many of them horiffic, and Ive never been afraid. However today I am terrified not for myself because personaly I fear nothing. But truly I fear for my four Beutifull Grandaughters who will be growing up in this to be the former democrocy known as The United States Of America. Does anyone out there have the answer?

    • Barb

      C Lee I too feel exactly as you do! I fear for my granddaughters too and my daughters! There is only one solution I fear and it isn’t pretty and I think it’s what the regime really wants from us so we have to be prepared and very careful before we begin. Hopefully you can read between the lines.

      • kate8

        Angel, they’ve been working hard at taking free speech. Just look at how political correctness has effectively silenced us on lots of issues.

        This new pick for Supreme Court – I read that she believes it’s okay to curb free speech on certain issues. This is where they are heading.

        • Save America Susie

          If that is where we are headed,God be with us! History has shown that people will only take so much. When Tyranny raises its ugly head, people rise up against it. That’s what caused the 1st American Revolution.

        • JLC

          Hi Kate8 — Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court is like hiring a kid, that has never held a steering wheel, to drive a school bus. According to all the reports that I have seen, she has NEVER had a judging assignment of any kind.

            Well, she did have an opinion…no military allowed on the HAVAD YHAD!

          • kate8

            She’s obviously an affirmative action pick. She covers several minorities in one fell swoop. And to top it off, she’s a dedicated socialist.

            The progressives have worked a long time to give overriding power to the SCOTUS. Now they’ll stack it with activists who’ll be there for a very long time. So no matter who controls Congress, they’ll be poised to strike down anything put forth by conservatives.

        Sure they have! Have you noticed who gets face time on TV? Have you noticed what stories are told on the evening news? Have you seen many Republicans shown in a good light? Did you noticed how much of the McCain coverage was limited to gossip and how much was devoted to Obama’s speeches? The media have silenced us. The media have decided that conservatives and republicans do not get to be heard. They drown us out with white noise, diversion, and Paris Hilton. The government doesn’t have to silence us when our voices are not given any coverage. We need to raise up in numbers that cannot be ignored if we want to exercise our freedom of speech.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Regina,
          Let’s not forget that McCain isn’t much cleaner than the progressives if at all. He has crossed the aisle so many times that there is a well worn path between his seat and the progressives.

      Read the Bible Carefully.

      It says, “If my people which are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, I will hear from heaven and heal their land.

      I.e. if enough sincere and active Christians humble themselves and pray for God to make our land straight and prosperous again, He will do it.

      We will also have to vote for good people, not necessarily a given party. Ask God for whom to vote, and read the platforms and the data on what the candidates have done.

      I believe God is rthe only one who cn do it, and people need to pray with pure hearts, and those who cn work at cleaning up the evil do so, God will crry out his end of the bargain.

    Obviously, the Democrats are protecting the criminals who broke our law, what part of ILLEGAL they don’t understand?. Who are these people running the country. Wow… Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats are aiding and abetting Criminals?, what about the peace loving Americans who abides the law, are you listening to us?. What is happening to the United States?. I think that’s what happen if you put an incompetent people to office. Fellow Americans, do your part on this coming November election, lets clean up the white once again. Thank you. Adios.

    Nothing this woman does surprises me anymore. I can guarantee she will not be voted out of office – she represents California – think about it. She should have been removed from office just for calling the tea party goers “racists and unamerican”. Politicians make me sick. They announced last week that one of our states congressman is stepping down because he is just worn out – well I probably would be too if I had gone into office with a networth of about $500,000 and came out with a networth of about $5,000,000 – that’s a lot of a$$ kissing and back door dealing – I would be worn out too. How does a congressman acrue that kind of wealth on their yearly salary? Makes you wonder! The entire government needs to be given a reality check!

Another don’t do as I do scenario, but do as I say. The Government is only pithing and moaning about Jan Brewer in Arizona, because, she enforced the immigration, law that the Feds, turned a blind eye to. Now the Almighty Administration wants to turnit into a BIG DEAL. It doesn’t matter when this immigration law is enforced or who enforces it, wether its NOW or a YEAR from NOW.

    I think Pelosi knows very well what she is doing in asking this of the Catholic Church. It is just another Political play on her part in which she see’s it as a win-win situation. Pelosi is NO Christian and not even a good catholic for that matter, according to the books. If the C.C agree’s, she has found a powerful ally. If they don’t agree, then she has a platform to critisize Christianity as a whole, lumping the C.C with all Christians. I look for her to use this as a pole for making the Church appear apathethic to the issue.

    • Peter

      Just two things. 1. We don’t have enough prisons and I don’t want to feed and house illegals for 25 years. How about we re-instate chain gangs. Let them pay their own way. 2. We have to have diplomatic immunity here because we want to have our diplomats extended diplomatic immunity in other countries. Other than that, vote YES!

    • 45caliber

      There are a couple of things that should be changed. First, limit the jail time to one year for being here illegally. 25 years would require too many prisons which are expensive. But you could make the prisons like the tent prisons of Sheriff Joe in AZ. You should also stop all transfer of cash by any means to another country. You cannot end diplomatic immunity because that would mean our people would lose it in other countries. But it is SUPPOSED to be used only for diplomats so it could be changed to mean that. The border should also be secured – by the military as it is in other countries including Mexico. With orders to stop illegals from entering by any means including shooting as is done in other countries including Mexico.

      But, by and large, this is a good attempt.

    • kilrntex

      Damn, I like your way of thinking. I believe I’ll copy it and send it to everyone on my list. The lines are being drawn and it doesn’t look good for a peaceful solution. They want to keep coming without any limitations whatsoever. On the O’Reilly factor two Mexican immigration activist just kept smiling and talking trash about what the fence and guard would do to prevent the aliens from coming, which would be useless! They pretty much dare us to stop them and let me tell you one thing for sure…. WE WILL one way or another!! Ron Gouchez called for a revolution on the UCLA campus in 2007 against the “frail, racist, white people” who stole their land. Ron, we paid you in full and then some, GO HOME!! Your revolution will not be good for you. There are many Mexican-Americans who are sick of the influx, just as the frail unracist white people are. These people who talk about revolution and open borders are playing with an ugly firestorm that will consume them! Nancy Pelosi has illegals working for her for less than minimum wage, but they have good healthcare for no cost to either of them! She gives Christianity a bad name, but so do many demoncrats. It’s impossible to be a liberal and a Christian. They don’t mix. You don’t make laws to kill babies and live by the Ten Commandments at the same time. What about the separation of church and state these maggots shove down our throats? It’s ok when it suits them. I am not a racist, just a “country loving American” who wants to preserve it for our children’s children. The free rides are over.

  • DD

    Pelosi & Crew USE the very people that they claim they want to help. I would imagine that most illegals (at least the Spanish speaking ones to the south of our border) attend Catholic churches. So, of course she is going to use the Catholic church as a mouthpiece for her agenda. I am a non-denominational Christian. I need to fill my minister in on the fact that he has been given the “green light” to preach against this administrations many transgressions – “as a manifestation of our living the gospels.” Of course if he did, our church would lose their tax-free status. Maybe that is their next plan? Yes, that’s probably the END GAME – unless you preach hate (as in Rev. Wright’s church) or this administration’s agenda – we’ll have to tax church contributions.

    • angel-wanna-be

        It is sadly true that too many of our churches have been infiltrated by this progressive movement. It is in their plan to gain control, just like they’ve infiltrated the Republican party and every other institution. How tragic is it that we can no longer really trust our churches, and even more so that they would sell out. For what? Their tax-exempt status?

        Look to the ones who have given up their tax-exemption. These are the ones most likely to stay true.

      I live in the socialist state of Washington where they tax everything else. Starting this week we are taxed on some candy bars (but not all) and we are taxed on bottled water. I do not understand the inner workings of government but I do understand this: Government has gotten so big and out of control and people have sat silently by for so long that the very machine of government is taking over. I can’t imagine trying to pass meaningful, intelligent laws without all the crap riders and paybacks that have become inevitable. Really, we are paying welfare to so many illegal aliens because they have children who were born here and are therefore citizens. We pay for their doctors’ bills because they cannot afford them. We pay for translators in courtrooms when they get speeding tickets. We pay for translators when they call 911 for free medical help and free ambulance rides. Where does it stop? Can we stop it without full scale revolution? I go back to the founding fathers and their belief in God and small government….

  • OneDamnAngryAmerican

    WHY IS OUR GOVERNMENT DEVELOPING A FEDERAL IMMIGRATION REFORM!?

    Duh! Enforce the law, you morons in the HOR’s!

    So, now we tell the Catholic church that it is ok to violate the immigration laws, by hiding illegals in church basements; but, it’s not alright for priests to sodomize 3 year old boys, in those same basements!?

    Palooka (my name for nancy) is now “telling” priests what they should be doing in their pulpits!? Nice going! What happened to the seperation of church and state? Ooops, so sorry, that’s in that “perverted” document called the “Constitution,” and, as we all know, we won’t be following that document, anymore, once the population of illegals exceeeds 80%, in 2015, as predicted by the US Census!

    So, while you are at it, Palooka, while not tell the Catholic church that your “leader” is muzlim, and therefore, it, the church, must replace all icons with the likeness of Jesus on it, and replace it with the likeness of muyharmard. Afterall, in a few years, it really won’t matter much, will it!

    Also check out the US census, and you will see that muzlim is the fastest growing religion in amerika. Duh, how did that happen?

Secondly, I want all of you out there, please, be better informed,educated voters with your practices! For your sake, mine, my children and their children of the future. Our children by far will have the greatest of burdens to raise their children up with the policies and legislation being passed through at break neck speed. STOP, putting yourself, ourselves, our children and their futures at risk… by ignorant voting!!! Be an informed voter, not an knee jerk emotional reactionary voter. For it truly cost far way too much…for all of us and with our very own personal liberties and life.

    Really who does Mrs.Pelosi serve? Is it really her convictions based upon Faith or the Politics of her job? Seems to me …not the house of true Faith. When she leading her parties majority by delegating what she or they think is in “the best” deemed deciisons…by their interests towards the public’s welfare. When their not listening to their constituent’s opinion or decisions…hence the word republic. It seems to me, Washington has little regard, let alone the question of true faith.

    Can you really call yourself a Christian… which by it’s very word protects all sanctity and values of Life. Mrs. Pelosi’s, lead the march to pass this awful health care bill by taking congressmen and women,in a sense hostage locked down in long meetings with little to no time to personally contemplate, read or consult their districts representatives opinions. That very same public at large who voiced their opposition to health care reform by a definite 75% margin…to kill this bill!

    Isn’t it hypocrisy to destroy life by taking away away life? You fund the taking away of the most precious and innocent of lives to give it away to adult that can make decisions in life. Those very same adults who were never denied access into the health care system by accessing the entrance called ER. No one is ever turned by the lack of insurance by trained ER responders. They were given entrance into health care and funneled into the system to begin with. Health care wasn’t broken for that 30%. But, torte reform, insurance or big Pharma “caps” weren’t even looked at. Caps could have been taken off that to begin with. Tell me who needs protection now…for it really the life of the unborn, to the youngest to the very oldest who are being marginalized…and you call this Health Care Reform. I call it a hypocrisy. Nor is this principles of the virtues of Faith. It doesn’t even come close.

    • Save America Susie

      I agree….This HC Bill is the “NEW SLAVERY”. I just about threw up when Bo said, “Now this what change looks like”. So… Get ready for some “real change”! Not exactly the change we’d hoped for, is it?

    • Regina

      Really, you point out one of my biggest issues with the far left: They deny rights to the unborn and marginalize the elderly but they decry capital punishment as inhumane. It is said, “When and old person dies it is like a library being burned down” and “The birth of a child is God’s way of saying the world should go on.” But the innocent are not protected by the democratic party. No, they protect felons. In fact, felons in Washington state (and some of the deceased) helped Christine Gregoire into office. What does that say about government?

    Does Pelosi think her political power can influence the decisions of the Catholic Church when she so pro abortion and this is one of the Pope’s most stringent Anti Abortion Rules of Catholic Church. I was a Catholic for many year and now am not but my stance on Abortion has never wavered to this day.On that stand alone,the Church should not even talk to Pelosi,especially listen to her Political suggestions on the Immigration situation. Let her stick to her politics and the church stick to their tenets of 2000 years. Is she trying to change the Church and State Rules too as the current administration has changed everything that always has been American and now is not. Freedom is fleeting.November is coming and we as Americans have to do something about these problems when November arrives.

    • Save America Susie

      Joseph, That is what struck me also! Pelosi must be INCREDIBLY ARROGANT to think she could approach the Holy Father of the Catholic Church–The POPE–and try and talk him into changing the rule on ABORTION. That was last year’s antics by Pelosi–did you read about that?–When she had an audience with him. I am a Christian, but not Catholic, but have many Catholic friends and family members. So I know a little about it & can sympathize. She definitely needs to go to confession for that alone.The sin of PRIDE. Or maybe she has a mental disorder where she has “Delusions of Grandeur”? Just because she is the Speaker of the House for a short time doesn’t make her Queen. She has one foot on a banana peel right now (& out the door in November). Talk about Audacity!

  • Da Norseman

    What happened to the separation between Church and State? Pelosi has the nerve to “preach” all this nonsense to the Church where she has no authority. She’s no saint and very far from it! She is one of the main reasons for the downfall of this economy. While she may win in her district this November she will definitely be “dethroned” as House Speaker since her unpopularity outside her district remains extremely high, and she is becoming more and more unpopular. She and Obummer will be losing many key allies, including the rude and disgraceful Harry Reid, at the polls this November.

    With Queenie PooPoo, hypocrisy knows NO bounds. It’s safe to say that she NEVER listens to the sleazoid words that continually pour from her mouth. While it’s not likely to happen, the Pope should tell her lowness to fondle a tree or volunteer for the next NASA mission.
    Assuming that the Pope has priorities, Queenie Puker should not be very high on his list. Aside from the FACT that Queenie Pooper has NO business telling any church leader what to say or do, she seems to have as much common sense as Gore (NONE).
    I almost feel sorry for Catholics. They’ve had to endure moral crises that won’t go away, and now Queenie Plasticmug wants to throw in her half-assed opinion.
    If the folks in California would vote her sorry posterior out of office, maybe she’d have a reason to have at least one foot in the real world

This super one party majority is checkmate for them to get a 2/3 majority so they can tear down the U.S. constitution. 2/3 votes in house and senate and you can ammend or add to it(constitution). The American people need to become vocal and contact your congressmen/women in your state and senators and express to them that you will settle for nothing less than removing these illegal aliens from our country and pass legislation to punish employers of illegals up to and including jail for the C.E.O. of the company. I live in N.J. and I remember in the 80′s, Governor Tom Kean was faced with a problem of ocean dumping. it continued with medical waste washing up on beaches. He signed a law that if you are caught dumping the C.E.O. of the corporation will be arrested and charged. next summer season and the ocean was crystal clear clean. similar legislation needs to be adopted for employers of illegals. If there are no jobs and no unearned entitlements given to them most of them will go home

    I wonder how she will answer to Christ as she wants all God says not to want.My Bible says abortion is sin.homosexually is a abomination to God and she pushed that. Takes tax payers money to buy booze and party. Now shes asking Priest to sin and ask people to go and break the law..If there are Catholics that truely believe Gods word and preaches it then they must live it .She in my opinion has given their church and people a very bad name and she along with the others that support her sin should be thrown out of the church.. a sin is a sin and if you condone it its sin…All have sinned but when you put greed corruption sin and abominations and live them without repentance ,God turns you over to a reprobate.. she along with others in this administration have bcome this… mocking Christ and Gods word for and throwing His word and laws out to make their own will only get you Hell. no priest, preacher or anyone can pray you out of Hell there is only one way.. that is Christ and look how she and this administration have blasphemed The Lord..All speak of Gods love and mercy but never of His judgement and wrath….

    I hope that the American public are as wise in November as the Brits were this week and realize that right now fiscally conservative leaders is what is needed to preserve their country. As president Obama stated after the healthcare was rammed down our throats. “We were voted in by the public and will use our majority given as we see fit despite public outcry” Time for the REAL Americans to step up and take our country back one election at a time.

    • Bigpicture

      I agree with many of these posts, that this appears to be a stand against a government that is going much too far in taking away liberties. But as I read, I see a theme developing and I wonder. I wonder if those politicians really care about illegals, or even if by granting amnesty they may have another agenda. I also think about another corporatist state in the 1930′s that found a population within its borders for its people to focus on, to hate. That population was systematically wiped out, and the hate-filled citizens were distracted from the real threat of corporate fascism and the drum beat of war. I cannot help but wonder if this amnesty argument is merely a “waving hand” intended to create hate and distraction while the other hand shreds the Constitution.

        Well, we are printing money hand-over-fist already. But few know about the history to which you allude, especially recent students in our schools.

        Just in case they saw through the smoke and mirrors of today.

  • Pam Bow

    Pelosi and Biden are Catholics in name only. You cannot truly have fundamental Catholic beliefs (or Christian for that matter) and support abortion. It’s not a manifestation of our living the gospels to support abortion or ILLEGAL immigration. Lying, cheating and stealing is not biblically condoned.

    If the catholic church listens to Pelosi thats another way to lose more of their congragation. That would mean the catholic church is for abortion and many other evil things.

    • JLC

      Rest easy, Wanda. The Catholic Church is unalterably opposed to abortion at any time, for any reason and in any way, shape or form. Church dogma is that abortion is murder! PERIOD!

      • Claire

        I would think the Catholic Church would stay out of politics. They have enough problems right now without adding politics to the mix.

        • JLC

          Claire, Yes, the Church does have problems, and is doing its best to cope with them. As a rule, the Church tries to stay free of politics, except for issues that directly concern the Church. The problem there is that certain politicians (Pelosi is a case in point) refuse to keep their noses out of Church affairs

          With respect to the issue that, I am sure, comes to a lot of minds right now, I have some personal views. As a young boy, like innumerable young Catholic boys, I served as an altar boy. I was NEVER molested by a priest, and I don’t personally know any other former altar boys who were. To my mind, this is the old story of the few bad apples in the barrel.

    • Lewis Munn

      Yes, something is very wrong, and has been longer than you think
      30-40 years ago the 3rd parties, the ones wanting reform, were being systematically undercounted, and the courts held that to be valid.

      So it continues, and the 3rd parties that wish reform can hardly get on the ballot, and are way undercounted by the crooked DemoPublican poll watchers and voting machines..

      Too bad the major parties collaborate to keep honest parties too small to matter.

      Be really nice if everybody voted for a small but honest party among the minority parties, and we had some real transformation of politics!

      Too many ways to keep the small parties tiny at election time! Maybe not legal, but effective.

  • Rita Taylor

    Nancy Pelosi should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. She may belong (in name only) to a Catholic parish but she does not embrace the church’s teachings. Any public figure who speaks out against the beliefs of the church should be excommunicated. She only makes Catholics (in general) look bad by saying she is Catholic and speaking against Catholic Doctrine. She is a hippocrit.

    • Save America Susie

      If Nancy Pelosi lived in the days of the French Revolution, she would fit right in, and could echo Marie Antoinette’s line, “Let them eat cake.” She is so out of touch with the “common people”. She also would probably not have too many days left until she got that “light headed” feeling….And then “lost her head”.

  • T. Rainey

    How dare she ask for such a thing. If the Church is going to talk about anything from the pulpit it needs to be how politians who claim to be Catholic need to fight for the rights of the unborn, Nancy Pelosi. Then the Church needs to start calling out all those politicians who are “pro-choice,” Nanci Pelosi. If they refuse to repent then they need to be dismissed as heretics and excommunicated. Do you hear us, Nanci Pelosi?

  • Hank

    Before the Healthcare debacle I was a serious Catholic. With the Church, or at least a vocal faction of Nuns in hospitals supporting the bill which obviously promoted abortion I became enormously distressed with the Church. There was some weak responses from the Conference of Bishops, but many Catholics, especially minorities who believed Health Care was endorsed by the Church. There was a lot of misinformation (all right – lying) about whether abortion was allowed within the Bill. That Pelosi (a Catholic?) and Harry Reid (Mormon?) pushed the bill so hard despite it’s Abortion issues left me shattered. I can only pray that God’s will is done eventually, despite what we are doing in our Holocaust of the unborn.

    JOE LEGAL vs. JOSE ILLEGAL

    You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”. Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California .

    Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

    Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.

    Ready? Now pay attention…

    Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

    Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200…00.

    Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.

    Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

    Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631.00.

    Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

    Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.

    Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

    Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

    Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

    Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal’s children go home.

    Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

    Do you get it, now?

    If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens You are part of the problem!

    It’s way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

    What are you waiting for? Pass it on.

    From: Edward Goelz
    Subject: : Obama Exempts Muslims from Paying for Health Insurance

    Snopes says that the wording in the healthcare bill is “religious conscience”. No specifics determined – Your call.
    God’s peace,
    Nettie

    In God We Trust

    You can check it on Snopes at http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/exemptions.asp
    I also checked this on three sights to be sure it is true and looks like it is. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY???

    I had never heard the word until now—Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting.

    Word of the Day: Dhimmitude

    Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to islam.

    The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.

    How convenient. So I, Robert McClurkan, a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

    Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. “Sure, I’ll be a muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, bro?”

    I recommend sending this post to your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it – quickly.

    I did check Google on Dhimmitude and the horrific Obamacare about certain sects being exempt from his health care. Yep, you are right. What a slap in the face. Obama is a Muslim using Marxist tactics to boot. What a deadly combination.

    I had never heard the word until now—Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting.

    Fwd: Cheap Tomatoes

    THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON’T CARE.

    This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet.
    Tomatoes and Cheap Labor

    CHEAP TOMATOES?
    This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent.

    From a California school teacher – - -

    “As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:

    I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels.

    Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

    Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and a roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.

    I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.

    I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
    funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America …

    I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students, here in the country less than 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them “Putas”(whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

    Free medical, free education, free food, free day care etc., etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

    To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

    Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

    Americans, We need to wake up.

    It does, however, have everything to do with culture: It involves an American third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness” that we don’t have the will to do anything about it.

    If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know.

    CHEAP LABOR? Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about?

    Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage.

    Consumers don’t want expensive produce.

    Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.

    But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”

    Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

    He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

    He qualifies for food stamps.

    He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.

    His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.

    He requires bilingual teachers and books.

    He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.

    If they are, or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. If qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicaid. All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense.

    He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

    Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

    He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.

    Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6..00/hour left after paying their bills and his.

    Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!

    THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS OF EITHER PARTY. AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON’T DO AS THEY SAY (or what we ask?), WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM .

    Please pass this on to as many as possible. Immigration legislation is to be considered in 2010. This is important to working Americans, our economy and our American culture and heritage..

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution
    From: James Graham

    THE HEART OF OUR PROBLEMS IS OUR POLITICANS ARE MONEY HUNGRY !!!!

    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.

    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, Representatives and the President together with his/her staff; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman, Senators, Representatives, and the President together with his/her staff 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
    Presidents an their staffs , Congressman, Senators an Representatives.
    Just think of all the money this would save the tax payers!!!!!

    I think the Senators, Representatives or Congressman that comes out strongly for this will be our next President.

    HTCM USN Retired James A. Graham E-Mail address is ( jagraham@charter.net ) Please forward !!!!!!!

    Who Knew?

    I know some of these ideas are true and do work… I don’t know about them all…

    Who knew?

    Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?

    Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?

    Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They’ll clear up your stuffed nose.

    Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.
    Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.
    Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never advertised for this use.
    Honey remedy for skin blemishes… cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.
    Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.
    Easy eyeglass protection… to prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.
    Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer… if menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can’t find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.
    Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer’s Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.
    Hunt’s Tomato Paste boil cure.. cover the boil with Hunt’s Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

    Balm for broken blisters… to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic.
    Vinegar to heal bruises… soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.
    Quaker Oats for fast pain relief… it’s not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.
    If you send this to one person who doesn’t know about this, then it was worth it.
    I’m gone…!!!!

    So much for the “wall of separation” between church and state! Pelosi and Obama strike again proving their wanton disregard for the Constitution.

    Church & State …….. She is bordering on violating our Constituion and that’s a fact-friend !!!

    Talk about a ‘Nasty-Nancy’ ……… She’s it!!!

    God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconcieve. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned, from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    Illegal immigrants appeal for fairness and rights. Yet, their sight is clouded. They stole the chance for documented migrants who want to work in a authorized way. Is this justice for them?

  • Joe

    Pelosi says that the immigration reform she has in mind (which no doubt adds up to might as well abandon the borders) is a ‘manifestation of our living the gospels”.

    What an incredible hypocritical bunch of crap. She is following Obamas example of pontificating, as if he, and now she, are the moral arbiters of ‘It’s the right thing to do” for the whole world.

    Give me a break. The sooner these creepy un-American hypocritical, elitist, communist wannabes are out of office, the better off the whole free world will be.

    Question? What happens to the churches’ tax free status if they start preaching,homilizing,sermonizing on governmental issues?

  • BrendaSueBob

    Oh my goodness. Soliciting a Church to speak out against Illegal Immigration,(key:Illegal) specifically the Arizona reform. Wouldn’t that be a violation of church and government? Man woman Nancy, must you continue to prove yourself more stupid than you did the day before.
    And you solicit the one church, who is so incredibly incredible. Pedophiles, Homosexuals teaching the word of God? And so many other violations against God as well as humanity than can be listed.
    What a mockery of the word of God the Catholic Church is. And Nancy, what a mockery you continue to make of the Constitution. Your underbelliedness continues to amaze me. You are such a freaking puppet, and never have I heard you speak up for the will of the people. You are a disgrace to the American people. In the words of Michelle Obama, this is the first time, as an adult that I am proud to be an American, how do you say NOT.

  • Claire

    Pelosi’s eyes look positively dead. Scary.

    we have to fire botox face she is dangerous she is a catholic huh? one who pushed through the health care bill on abortions.if a priest says to me about immigration reform and instructs me to accept it i will walk out and never come back

  • tennhome

    Everyone is missing the incredible and potentially explosive political implications of this effort. The Catholic bishops do not have to be persuaded. This has been the Catholic agenda from the beginning. The Hispanic electorate in 1980 was 2.4 million, 5.7 million in 2000, and…with a new influx of individuals able to vote…could swell to over 14 million (see HCAPL study from Notre Dame University). The majority of Hispanic immigrants are conservative Catholics who believe that the Church should influence the State. Catholicism has increased its influence all the way to the Supreme Court (majority of Justicies are Catholic). What is next?

  • Lewis Munn

    Hmmm…think we can get the Liberal Catholics and the Activist Muslims into another war of attrition and let them prune each other back? Think it might work?
