    It's time for a new conservative network...

    Far, far to long overdue. Fox was the thrill up the leg for quite a few...the hope and dream, 'til they noticed that wasn't water raining down.

    Hell, it's time for an HONEST news outlet. No talking heads, details w/out bias. At least the 'net has loosened the strangle-hold over the 'news'; guess that's why it's being given away (too much THINK starting).

    >There is no such restriction in the Constitution. The power of the Pardon is absolute.

    Govt created to ensure, defend and uphold our inalienable Rights too, but we all know that not to be the case in many a moon. Try bringing up your 5th A. Rights in a ‘tax court’ or 2nd in any ‘may issue’ State, or...

    The Constitution is only cited/upheld, strictly so, when it favors those whose asses should be in Club Fed.

    Property being just one of said inalienable. Yet, I have a hard time remembering it being staunchly defended. In fact, I have a ‘pay stub’ showing how little of this Right, as they steal a goodly % to give to others and ‘save’...for ‘my benefit’ (should I live that long and they *allow*), of course.

    I haven’t seen any roving bands of Patriots removing these tyrants from office nor head from shoulders. So, call me skeptical if one wishes

    I’m inclined to think that all will suffer in this Nation, for their Stupidity in putting the Obama’s into the White House for 2 terms.

    Finance is not something the current administration knows anything about , and it shows.

    Smart money is moving off shore, and when (not,,-if) the bottom falls out..............when it gives....get out of the way because there is no bottom or Safety Net this time. We will all be long.............gone, to ever see it come back.

    Obama has been a complete disaster for the USA. Nobody rides for free. Enjoy the show, because you’ve paid a steep price for being foolish America, -it will be here, (in my opinion) ...soon!.

    Administration? The whole of GOVT doesn’t ‘understand’ economics.

    First, and foremost, the Prez. doesn’t do D!CK w/out the consent and approval of Congress (keepers of the ‘purse strings’). The ‘small govt’ (R)NC\GOPe have done *NOTHING* to suppress, let alone halt, the (illegal) run-away spending of Zero.

    “Mr. Finance”, the SotH, can’t get a ‘balanced budget’ outside of 20yrs!! Talk about kicking the can down the road (as if the road will be there in 20 yrs). 3rd rail of politics won’t EVER be touched, regardless of how unconstitutional and illegal it may be.

    Block it because of a majority? What did they BLOCK, *BEING* the majority, of Zero??

    I say, go for it. Attach the verbiage to abortions, voting, welfare, etc.: Some Rights are more inalienable that others it would seem...not as if the (R) could articulate what a ‘Right’ is to begin, let alone broach the subject [that might get People to start thinking].

    You can thank LBJ’s Great Society for initiating this malady.
    Having a black male around the house resulted in loss of benefits from his War on Poverty. To keep welfare payments, the man had to go. The alternative was for taxpayers to fund poor families forever. It’s a lose-lose situation with no end in sight.

    False dichotomy. The ‘win’ was keeping govt in its rightful place in the matter: OUT of the matter entirely.

    There is not an ‘issue’, that I can recall, ‘solved’ by govt. I can give numerous examples of the reverse.

    Oh, I said *nothing* about ignoring the obvious.

    That doesn’t mean govt gets (nor has the authority) to saddle BIZ with the attempt to clean up the mess for ‘em (while they wash their hands of the matter). And, if biz doesn’t do a ‘good enough job’, get fined out the wazoo.

    What if they just want cheap sub-contractors?

    Well, it’s a free country (or, was): Take your chance(s).

    Used to be, maybe even more-so today w/ Yelp and the like, word of mouth would be enough to shut down people thought others might wish to avoid. “Hey, guy\co X employs illegals!”.

    Let the market decide.

    Course, someone burns their house down so Paulo can work for $5\hr cheaper, I’m sure the insurance company would have some say as well...

    What is the problem with stopping ALL benefits to these illegal invaders...including allowing their children to use the schools? Do you love America or are you a hopeless naive romantic? Give them 6 months to self-deport. After that, seize their assets and arrest them for immediat6e deportation.

    ?? I think you got the wrong FRiend, I’ve been a BIG proponent to upholding the 5th\13th and ending any\all welfare/crony Capitalism.

    Hell, I think schools, and many other ‘govt services’ should return to service orientated: Those who use PAY.

    >I don’t think it should be abolished, as there are some food needy people. It should go backwards in time. Government trucks/distribution warehouse should make available basic staples, like they used to. Beans, canned pork, some of that orange cheese, rice, sugar. It shouldn’t be a luxury charge program, or worse yet, delivered straight to your welfare door.

    Yet another example of WHY we’re in the boat we’re in\lose the debate before word one. “I think we shouldn’t violate the Constitution...except in *this* instance...”. (Facepalm)

    Whom defines ‘needy’ better than those whose time\$$ is being DONATED? There’s certainly very little ‘poor’ in this country.
    How long before a ‘fixed’ system turns into the same quagmire that it is today?

    We either have a 5th\13th+, or we don’t.

    Yeah. The author gives your average, dupe on the street, way too much credit. Your current crop of college ...graduates, (LOL!!) over the last ten years, are just not all that bright and little more than angry infants; now looking for someone else to be Mommy and Daddy.

    IMO, I’m not so sure if it’s more of a perceived injustice (shape\matter\form). Just my $.02, but I think we’ll be seeing a tete-a-tete of young vs. retired when they start realizing the tax burden the GOVT is imposing upon them for the Ponzi schemes promised (and rightfully so).

    Unfort., the ‘everyone in college’ thinking just = more govt indoctrination. Real life is going to bring that into focus RIGHT QUICK.

    SO how would you deal with self-employed illegals who are not using any government services?

    I’d say that’s another unicorn (not using any taxpayer provided ‘services’) but, to answer your question: The same as I’d hope every OTHER Citizen would do. AKA: their due diligence (IE: Ask for their license and insurance, verify their references and the like).

    Now, you talking picking lettuce\tomatoes\seasonal work...

    NO! Enforce e-Verify on ALL EMPLOYERS for current and future workers, wither temporary, part-time, or full-time. No exceptions. Make it a felony for anyone, even a private citizen hiring a lawn care worker or maid, to hire an illegal alien. No jobs, no illegal aliens. Simplest, most direct solution that really costs the taxpayer nothing being making e-Verify work, simple, and be accessible to everyone.

    Sorry, no. 1) No more foisting upon the masses that which is solely the authority of govt (see: employer mandated h-care and the like). 2) As a once Free nation, I have issues requiring ‘permission’ from the govt to work\live. Making it accessible to everyone creates, yet another, large bureaucracy of sloth and ineptitude (records would never be update, let alone complete) thanks.

    As Ann, and I in the past, have said: end welfare. Not just for illegals, but any\all *ALL* welfare (we have a 5th\13th\9th\10th specifically stating why\so).

    Now, I’m ALL for the fines (firing, loss of benefits and jail) for ANYONE in *GOVT* failing to uphold the law.

    Lastly, I think we can agree upon amnesty.
