I have not seen so much non-linear paroxysms from the REDS since 2008. Don't you love Bone-heads logic, "Since you did something we hate on immigration, we aren't going to do what we want to do on immigration even though we have the votes for our Constitutional duty. We are going to sit on our thumbs until we get constipated and explode just to teach everyone a lesson. Screw the Republic."
Z-fibber sez, "inq, they're not immigrants, they're illegal aliens invaders..." Well they are immigrants, you paste the adjective "illegal" in front if you like.
They are human beings just like you and I; however, you never hesitate to toss a racially-tinged comment letting us know you probably hail from Sand Mountain and think anyone but a lily-white is sub-human..
Percentage wise there is no change in immigration volume. Even the percentage covered by President Obama is almost exactly the percent " forgiven" by Bush the Younger. Immigrants strengthen the country, it is a centuries old reality.
Old Taj neds to lay off the hookah.
Oh no!! Another conspiracy theorist: zableedofisterix said...
It's obvious BO's plan is to have the flooding of country with illegal alien invaders continue."
you guys are so funny making a storm out of a teapot.
He certainly did not thumb his nose at me.
I thought Sen. (sic) Corker showed great adult behavior with his quote about President Obama being the worst president "unless lightening strikes." Great leadership the senator shows, pandering to the baseness of human behavior.
The sad thing is I know Corker. Political power is changing him.
Oh, and Z, you ought to read Mark 12:28-34, especially if you attend a Christian church.
Clay a nice cartoon, maybe a bit overreach, but certainly President Obama has reached out for equality and compassion.
Fairmon raises some legitimate questions:
" who is not now paying taxes is known then someone must know who they are and how much they would be paying to conclude there would be more tax revenue?"
Yes, all you need to do to find underpaid, under the table wages to illegal immigrants is go to a construction site, a hotel in the late morning, a vegetable farm in Southern California, or the guys doing your lawn service.
"What happens to the millions not under the umbrella of being here 5 years with a kid born here? What happens to those with a kid born here that have been here less than 5 years? Do they just stay in the shadows until the next time?"
If they get caught in something the probably face deportation, if they stay low working the fields they roll the dice. In reality, if they are parents of an American citizen, they ought to be able to stay.
"What is going to prevent multiple returns like the killer of the California policeman that came back three times, is that just chalked up to sheet happens?"
What is going to stop a couple from killing a pastor over drugs, sex or a lending hand as happened last week over near the Ringgold Tunnel, or some one raping a jogger at Findley Stadium?? Or some cross burners to show up on Sand Mountain again??
"This doesn't jive with the contention that the borders are more secure than they have ever been. Is this a politically motivated initiative? It just doesn't smell right?"
Numbers do not lie, look at the numbers.
"The justification seem to come down to it isn't our character. To deal with illegal immigrants by deporting or other action for not obeying the law is not who we are."
I guess this does not carry much weight anymore: "You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt." Ex. 22:21
"Is this executive order the comprehensive immigration law that is supposed to be forthcoming? It certainly doesn't appear to meet the criteria of being comprehensive and addressing all the issues."
So write your speaker of the house, Mr. Boehner, and ask him to bring up the immigration reform law sitting on his desk that has already passed the Senate. President Obama had to remain within the confines of the law, he did not feel he could not go further short of pardoning them all.
I dare you to use the "I" word.
