Will Corporatism Win Again?

Obama Discusses Immigration Reform at the White House

A full court press to push an amnesty bill through the House of Representatives will begin next week. It will be spearheaded by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a coalition of Big Business and Silicon Valley, immigration activists and liberal religious leaders.

An amnesty bill is bad for the American worker. It’s bad for the economy. It’s bad for America.

But it’s good for Big Business, which sees a pool of workers content with slave wages. It’s good for unions, which sees a pool of workers who believe in the collective and would look favorably on the opportunity to join.

A group of conservatives has vowed to withstand the pressure from the deep pockets that fund their campaigns.  Many of those are the same conservatives who took a stand to try and defund the graft-laden Obamacare bill a couple of weeks ago. And they are being targeted by the old guard of the GOP who despises any attempt to derail their money-fueled gravy train.

The question is: Will corporatism win again? If it does, America loses.

    We must do whatever it takes to stop this amnesty giveaway of America.

    Whatever we think or do, the Corporations run the show, people are irrelevant and the clock is ticking – it can be easily surmised that horrendous times are ahead and there are “Attila the Hun’s” waiting everywhere! Same old and lets start again. Keep doing the same thing and expecting blah,blah, blah…..enough already.

      We have given these “corporations” in reality the 1% ODUMBO said he wanted to TAX Carte Blanche because we elect criminals into office.

      In reality very few people actually want to work so they choose those who promise them things. Those who offer these things are first LIARS second Thieves, and third Corrupt.

      Anyone who espoused hard work and personal responsibility and hd actually worked in the private sector is a far superior a candidate than any prevaricating trial lawyer!

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

    Ho Hum, just another preconceived attact on the American People. I’m so full of myself I can’t stand it any longer. Now, I can go and play nine holes of golf before the congress caves in to my wishes again….
    In the real world their wouldn’t be any place for a scumbag like obama to hide himself and that stuffed pig he calls his wife after they leave office. ORRR, maybe the plan is for them to stay in office indefinately. That’s a great place for them to hide. Sorry hillary, after all, “what difference, at this point, does it make”. obozo has already raped the country. Their’s nothing left for you and billy boy to do….

    Obama says one of the reasons for an amnesty bill is it will fill a need for more workers. What a stupid statement to make when we have so many people out of work. This president has never been for creating more jobs, he is for creating more people collecting money for non work so they become voters for the Dems.

    • Don 2

      America already has 90-million able bodied citizens out of work, or not looking for work. All we need is another 20-30 million more mouths to feed. This is no accident, nor the result of stupidity. This is the Cloward-Piven strategy on steroids, and Obama is the Facilitator-in-Chief. This is the Road to Serfdom, and all of you useful idiot liberal/progressive/socialist trolls are coming along for the same ride. When the final curtain falls, the hardcore Communist will squash you like bugs, for you will serve no further useful purpose.

  • peter

    The gravy train keeps on rolling and whether it’s driven by the GOP or the Democrats makes no difference. Those who claim that they wish to derail it are also pulling our socks, they just want to get on it for those who already are on it, they just want to get nearer the marrow. Liars and thieves remain just that, funny how they always seem to get it right – refer to the present occupant of the WH. Why the sheer arrogance of this administration has become so acceptable is hard to understand. Obama would be considered as unemployable in most businesses. His feeble effort at running the USA has reinforced the opinions of those who considered him to be incompetent and have proven those to be correct. Now we are looking to another Clinton – may God intervene – seriously! Is there no end to our madness?

      It will end with the demise of the USA and then it will be too late. The NEA has done irreparable damage to our youth programing their minds with socialistic propaganda while dumbing them down resulting in a populace of functionally illiterate automatons. Liberals were smart to push for the 18 year old vote because young people are too impressionable and easily brainwashed. Unconsciously doing what they’re told and believing falsehoods

      “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already. What you are, you will pass on. Your descendent’s, however, now stand in the new camp. In
      a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'” – Adolf Hitler November 06, 1933 The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

      “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give youth its own education and its own upbringing.” Adolf Hitler May 01, 1937 The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

      “The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people
      will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” – Adolf Hitler

      “By means of shrewd lies unremittingly repeated, it is possible to make people believe that heaven is hell – and hell heaven. The greater the lie, the more readily it will be believed.” Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

    This is an issue you may need to rethink. I don’t believe in illegal immigration but any disruption in our food production would be a disaster.
    I drove a truck for the potato harvest. 90% of the workers were Hispanic. I don’t know if any were illegal nor do I care. They worked hard and the job got done.
    So before we take on an issue that deports millions of people that mostly work in the food production arena, let’s take some baby steps. Let’s reform the welfare and special rights that we give the illegals. No more need for Spanish speakers in the schools. No more need for publications to be duplicated in Spanish. And of course the food stamps and cheap housing issues.
    If a man wants to come into our country, work for 6 months and then take his money and go home is one issue. The other issue is the man that comes and brings his family and then starts taking advantage of our flawed welfare system.

    • Cliffystones

      I agree with your ideas. Unfortunately, this isn’t what “comprehensive reform” is about. Am I correct in assuming that Congress could do nothing next week and the crops would still be harvested?

      If and when Congress does “reform” immigration, it needs to be done with natural born citizen’s concerns addressed first. The Mexican government, Meccha, LaRaza and the rest of the illegals special interest groups need to be shut completely out of the discussion. This is OUR country, and WE should decide if and when to grant amnesty, paths or anything else.

      And all you Libs, don’t get me wrong. I grew up in East LA. I understand why the vast majority of these folks come here to work. Their government could care less about them, and they just want to feed their families. But my understanding and compassion only goes so far.

        And you think our government gives two $hits in a rain barrel for the average American? If you do I have a bridge for sale.

          You are absolutely right, and I stand corrected. I find myself “putting the cart before the horse” in my previous post. In order for real “reform” to occur, we would need a group in DC that’s actually “represents” US citizens. Both naturalized and “heirloom” varieties :). And no, I’m not holding my breath.

          My Father was a Marine in WWII. His wisdom from that experience, as well as being a Missourian, has guided me well. I commend and thank you for your service.

      Given the choice to starve or harvest crops you’d have to be a liberal to choose to starve. As for your comment of no more need for Spanish speakers I couldn’t agree more. As an Immigrant I had to learn English BEFORE I was allowed entry into the US I was not of age but my parents had to demonstrate and prove self sufficiency in order to gain entry.

      I can go one better I want to see the reversal of the liberal mantra of having voters ballots printed in every imaginable language. Since the requirement to vote is being a US citizen AND the requirement for citizenship is supposedly to be proficient in English there is no need for multi language ballots unless you are endorsing voter fraud.

      We can solve illegal immigration by disallowing them access to free welfare free food stamps free medical care free education etc. Without an incentive they won’t come unless they truly want to be part of OUR society. I am from Germany I don’t regard myself as a “German American” I am an American period. The same can be (or should ) apply to other ethnic groups. You come here to live fine be an American don’t wave a foreign flag or say “in my country” If you do you are NOT an American and should return to “your country” as you don’t want to assimilate into OUR society.

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

        It would help to solve illegal immigration if Obama wouldn’t have sued states to prevent them from defending themselves from this invasion. The sad thing is, way back in the 50’s it was the Mexican Government that put pressure on Eisenhower to try to stop the illegal immigration into the US. They wanted their citizens kept in Mexico to help build the country.

        • Vis Fac

          ODUMBO hasn’t done a damn thing to save our nation from ANYTHING He put is in deeper debt, peril, and disgraced us. AND now you want to do what liberals have ALWAYS done play the BLAME Game and blame Eisenhower. You are reaching reaching deep which shows how desperate you are.

          Liberals are the ones promoting illegal immigration they do so because it is in their best interests to do so. More votes for the DUMBOCRITIC party.

          FYI I am not in the mood to but ant bridges and I have yet to see a turnip truck let alone fallen off one!!

    NO AMNESTY; NO H1Bs,

  • Chuckb

    anyone who thinks we need illegals to work our produce fields is sadly mistaken,

    The people crossing the border illegally are not looking for field work, we have ample harvesters, we always have had, Those people come in legally on green cards.

    The accumulation of illegal foreigners are made up of people from all over the world, however, the majority are from Mexico and Latin America.
    They are swamping our system, welfare, education and medical. They are mostly socialistic and are ready to vote for the Democratic party, legal or illegal.

    These Republican Politicians voting for Amnesty will be voting themselves out of office and giving the Bolsheviks control of our Nation.

      I don’t think you are correct on this one. We don’t have ample harvesters. Our young think that hard, dirty work is beneath them. In fact I’ve seen Hispanic young that have gone through our school systems,think they are above doing the work their parents came here for. That is why the constant influx of illegals: in one generation the foreigners learn to use and abuse the system to the point of becoming as spoiled and lazy as our own youth.
