No I will not give it a rest. As long as the Perry propogandist are Roveing around. I will not let nanny staters tell me what to do.
And I will not shrink from my statements as long as they’re true. You give it a rest, alright?!
I work at Wallyworld and we are not allowed to comment on what people do. I have written to Gov Daniels and a few others but no response.
So you’re a a Texas jingoist with blinders on. Good for you? Keep your RINO in your own borders than if you’re so proud of him.
Of course, no illegal gets a dime...let them self deport...no jobs, no government assistance...these politicians including Palin, says we can't deport 20 million illegals...they are right we can't...they can deport themselves...cut them off completely...
A rest from what, being civil?
There you go again!
Are you kidding me. I assume you must be just as concerned about the Perry acolytes with their vast array of ad hominem attacks...
Most of what we are saying is just plain comman sense, but whoever said congress had ANY comman sense?
All I know is that if something is not done about this, America is doomed, add to these freeloaders, all the unemployment checks freely givin out now, and anyone with comman sense can see what is happening. Congress just DON'T Care, they are all EVITA's.
Oh!, don't forget, get your children into an overpriced college, with overpriced Books, with a degree in whatever. There is a shovel ready job waiting, oh boy, goody goody.
I am old and disgusted with what I am seeing. "Grandpa, Tell Me Bout the Good Ole' Days", by the Judds.
We are having tax-free retail purchasing this weekend in TX.
Do you consider not charging sales tax a subsidy?
There you go again!
Some just can’t help themselves....
Currently there are 18 on the list of “Ins” for the GOP nomination.

Santorum .. Wuensche
1) Personal computer running database software.
2) Make every state dump the social security numbers attached to every food stamp, AFDC, welfare, etc. beneficiary.
3) Dump all the Social security numbers in to the database.
4) Where more than one social security numbers is used in more than one state suspend all benefits for that number.
5) Sit and wait for crooks to show up and complain. If they have ripped off the system make them pay the money back by stripping them of their assets. Cars, TV’s, etc.
Ok, when they replace the old card, they should be able to cancel it, as well as find out how much was left on the card and reissue for that amount, is that the way it is done?
That is just one of two current controversies in the 14th Amendment.
Justice Thomas completely surprised the SCOTUS when in his concurring decision in the gun rights McDonald v. Chicago decision, he wrote a brilliant 100 page thesis in defense of the “privileges or immunities” clause in section 1 of the 14th Amendment. It showed some very strategic thinking.
First of all, section 1 is under intense scrutiny right now, for its “citizenship clause”, for the reasons you mentioned. And yes, it may be changed by statute alone. However, Thomas foresaw an inherent danger, of “throwing out the baby with the bathwater”, with the potential for overturning the entire section, which he could make some considerable argument, would be a disaster.
This is because the “privileges or immunities” clause basically gives the authority to the federal government to intervene if a State decides to persecute some of its citizens by denying them their rights. And he did so, as part of McDonald, by assigning this denial to *gun* rights.
Game, set and match. A work of genius on his part.
At the time, the “privileges or immunities” clause had become ill used in legal decisions, but because of his thesis, it is again front and center and in the spotlight. That concurring decision should be in legal textbooks for the next 100 years.
And though very few other black Americans realize how essential it is to their freedom, with his concurring decision, Thomas has done them as a group more good than anyone in recent memory. Not that they will ever appreciate it.
The other big problem in the 14th Amendment, right now, as cited by the administration, is in the 4th section.
“The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned...”
Which they half-seriously suggested gave the president unlimited spending authority to pay any accrued debts, even from promises *he* made.
Fortunately, I don’t think anyone bit on that nonsense. However, this does open the door to a future, Republican, congress, nailing that particular coffin lid shut as well. Likely while they are closing that citizenship clause loophole.
This is the basis of the residency requirement.
Determination of Residence Status
A. The following persons shall be classified as Texas residents and entitled to pay resident tuition:
1. a person who:
a. graduated from a public or accredited private high school in this state or received the equivalent of a high school
diploma in this state, and
b. maintained a residence continuously in this state for
(i) the thirty-six months immediately preceding the date of graduation or receipt of the diploma equivalent, as
(ii) the 12 months preceding the census date of the academic semester in which the person enrolls in an institution
(Note: An individual who is neither a US citizen nor permanent resident must complete and submit the Affidavit).
What if Palin doesn't get in the race and Perry is the Republican nominee? Does that thought give you nightmares? Do you plan to write in Palin and let obozo sneak back in to the WH?
I’d like to see mandatory drug testing for all welfare recips.
If Home Depot [and most other other places] require it to draw a paycheck, why not “gubmint paychecks”?
You could cut welfare spending by half, immediately.
The "maybe" list is growing.
One of those women had 6 children. Where are her baby daddies? Why aren’t they providing food for their children?
FYI When Texas became one of the first states in the nation to overhaul welfare by insisting the poor work, the governor made a bold prediction.
"I believe this bill will make Texas a much better place," Gov. George W. Bush said at the June 1995 bill signing.
If issuing fewer welfare checks means better, then Texas has succeeded. But Texas' welfare-to-work success masks a growing poverty problem that, critics say, has little to do with the writing of paltry checks and much to do with the state's historical resistance to offering services to those in need.
More than a decade after Bush signed the bill into law, the number of people receiving a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, check has fallen 73 percent.
Today, fewer than 5 percent, or about 173,000 of the state's 4 million poor children and adults, receive checks, a maximum of $223 monthly for a mother and two children.
Officials appear on track to eliminate the traditional welfare check for good.
"That would be my goal," said Larry Temple, executive director of the Texas Workforce Commission, the agency tapped to move welfare recipients into the work world. "To work us out of that job, that would be a great success."
Texas has moved thousands of poor single mothers into the work force, but their average wage of $7.19 an hour isn't lifting them out of poverty. Officials say that benefits, including child care, Medicaid, federal tax credits and food stamps, help provide a safety net, but charities often have to fill the needs of these women, who represent the majority of those on welfare.
Rep. Harvey Hilderbran, a Kerrville Republican who authored the 1995 bill, said he's satisfied that lawmakers did change the culture of dependence and replace it with one that relied on work. "At this point, the reduction in welfare rolls is a resounding and unquestionable success," he said. Hilderbran blames some of the growth in poverty on illegal immigration, which is borne out by demographic trends. (Illegal immigrants cannot receive TANF funds, and very few legal ones can.
