I’m crushed altura,here all this time I thought.....
It is not bogus. We have 300,000 to 400,000 anchor babies born annually in the US or about one out of every ten children born in this country. They are American citizens entitled to all of the benefits of citizenship including Medicaid, food stamps, etc. They are called anchor babies for a reason. When they reach 21 they can sponsor their parents to be here legally. And we also have birth tourism, which I am very familiar with.
I thought Rubios solution sounded reasonable.
Only to those who are not well informed about the issue, which unfortunately are most Americans. It would provide amnesty for an estimated 3 million illegal aliens and it would be a rolling amnesty.
Anchor babies already have a good case that they are citizens by virtue of being born in the USA. If it ever goes to the Supreme Court, I think they would win.
They are already winning under the status quo. They are American citizens, millions of them thru jus solis and that will not change for those already with citizenship. If Congress passes a law eliminating birthright citizenship, it will be challenged in the courts. If SCOTUS declares the law unconsitutional, then it would take a Constitutional Amendment to change it. There are only two developed countries in the world, Canada and the US, that still have birthright citizenship. Ireland was the last European country to get rid of it.
The homosexual marriage thing is a deliberate distraction.
If this country goes down the tubes, homosexual marriage will be the least of the gay community’s worries. A ;arge portion of their income comes from stuff like interior design, fashion, arts, etc. If we are all scrounging for food and fuel, no one is going to hire them for this type of stuff.
Like it or not, we are all in this together. The focus has to be on JOBS and the destruction of our economy through regulations, environmental lawsuits, prohibition on oil and gas drilling, coal mine closings, etc.
The fact that Biden started blabbing about gay marriage tells you that Obama would prefer we argue about THAT, rather than talking about how bad things are economically, and how many people are out of the work force.
About 25% of my customers at my eBay store are now foreign. They are willing to buy antiques and collectibles and pay the shipping overseas. Why? Because my stuff is a bargain to them due to the fall of the dollar. And the decline in the value of the dollar is directly due to Obama’s policies.
I thought Rubio was outstanding on Fox Sunday. He is effortlessly articulate and gives the impression that his policies are something he has thought about seriously and deeply believes in.
I think he would be an asset to the ticket but not because he would attract hispanics.
I don’t think any of the people bray mentioned would work. It would be too easy to re-quote to them all the things they said about Romney in the campaign.
Anyway, their negatives are the reason they couldn’t make it and I’m not talking just organization and money.
If Romney picks Ryan it will be a defacto endorsement of his financial plan and that wouldn’t be bad in my opinion.
But it will be interesting to see.
Oh, I respect Rubio, but not sure his honeymoon with media would last. I’m for more proven quantities I guess, like Jeb Bush to help with Florida, or Gov. John Kasich (don’t hear him mentioned by chattering class, as opposed to new Senator Rob Portman, who really is not known in Ohio - Yes, he beat the sitting Lt Governor to attain the senate seat but it was a huge anti-Obama GOP sweep AND the Lt Gov had almost no support, even in his own party. Ohio is a must win state. Kasich suffered some lumps like WI Gov Walker on public sector labor reforms. Kasich had his own TV show called “The Heartland” on Fox (2001-7). He was on Dole’s short list for VP in ‘96. He was a budget wizz in Congress (1983-2001). He has been REAL quiet. He would electrify the convention. He is also from indistrial Pittsburgh area, PA, so 2 birds with one stone (OH-PA).
To think that any of this can be managed without deep cuts in every phase of government we have is incredibly naive.
What's even worse is neither side,us or the demoncrats are able to talk about any of it since the DBM has made even the thought of budget cutting toxic for everyone who is dependent on politics for a living.
Once again that's why the slow but sure demise/death of the DBM is essential. Here in the New Media We can and will fulfill what they should have been doing all along.
You are so right about libs. They have no core values.
I am REALLY tired of sending our troops into foreign countries with no serious aim or purpose.
I don’t want to do it anymore. Nothing changes. Look at the Korean war. Someone said North Korean people are in such starvation, they eat grass.
I feel sorry for the innocent people in backward, primitive societies, but there is nothing we can achieve for them by sending troops. Nothing by sending food or money, either as their corrupt leaders manage to grab it before it gets to the people.
We need to protect ourselves and it can best be done by intelligence efforts and by bombing.
With regard to the middle east, they have three things: a horrible religion, oil and sand. We need to stop buying their oil and use our own.
WRT anchor babies, I think the Parent’s Country has a stronger case when extending their Citizenship to that baby!
(ie. if the Parents are French Citizens, then the baby is a French Citizen.)
All you say is true but it doesn’t change my premise.
I don’t think any of those things are in the minds of people who come here illegally.
they just aren’t.
Border control is the only way to stop the influx.
Why will nobody get serious about that?
Surely it’s not impossible. Oh, some would get through, but it would be a trickle compared to the flood we have now.
And Obama has no interest in stopping the flood or doing anything about illegals already here. He won’t even allow criminals to be deported. It’s crazy.
yep, the debt-Meister’s minions are going to have to distract from the glaring issue of anemic private sector economic expansion.
What is it about NE Rep. women legislators ? Kelly--at a young age of 40-45 I'd guess---has a hint of that faltering ?, weak ?, old ? vocal pattern that we hear with Sen. Snow. Odd for such a young lady, and I dont' expect it would get better, but rather more pronounced. FWIW.
Brokaw then blasted the White House Correspondents for the image they're presenting, acknowledging that the media is more impressed with celebrity than they are with the news. Correct, Tom !
Yep, too bad any Republicans went along with raising the debt-ceiling. They should have refused it, then detail the spending budget instead.
Many Cubans,if not experiencing Castro style communism first hand have been told the stories by parents, relatives and friends what to expect from communist rule and they want no part of it.They differ from the standard experience of other Hispanics.
Truth is Marco Rubio is a true American legislator first. He always puts God and country first not that he won't help Hispanics if the opportunity arises. But he won't shy away from helping anyone if the opportunity arises.One of the great characteristics about him as a potential VP he has universal appeal, IMHO. Plus charisma X 10. Sarah Palin and Rubio have the Charisma necessary to make it to the top one day.
If interest rates return to their historical norms, we will be in a world of hurt with debt servicing costs alone amounting to almost a trillion dollars a year. The politicians of both parties are afraid to tell the public how bad things really are.
One of the toughest choices Mitt will have is to go for securing a state vote,Penn, Ohio, Fla. Va. or others or go for the man.Challenging call no mater what he does.
He totally has the things you mentioned. I turned it on out of curiosity but the guy (yeah, I know he’s too young for me) just mesmerized me. I sat and watched his entire interview, neglecting my dog, neglecting making coffee ... I dunno.
He certainly has what we used to call “It.”
Whether he should be the veep choice or not I don’t know, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he is president some day.
Altura, as a Texan and supporter of Perry, do you think that needle can be threaded ? Is that the real concern of Perry/Rubio, or just deference to less expensive labor. What say you ?
Only a few employers hell bent on cheap labor at any cost would give our side a hard time other than a few rinos still worried about losing the Hispanic vote. The BS about losing the Hispanic vote over a secure border is just that.
Many Hispanics are disgusted that we don't have a more secure border.They don't want terrorists coming across any more than we do.
Biden: Osama bin Laden is dead; General Motors is alive.
[Biden paused, but still didnt get any audience reaction for that comment.]
They would trade a dead GM for a living bin Laden any day of the week.
Since when has governing or the thought of how to govern changed so much!! Its insane and few bring it up!!
