Conservative Hispanic group
tells GOP to avoid ‘amnesty’ label

Yahoo News, by Liz Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:mambo 5, 1/29/2013 2:08:30 PM

A conservative pro-immigration reform group has issued talking points to Republican lawmakers, telling them to avoid referring to the U.S. citizen children of illegal immigrants as "anchor babies" or calling for the construction of an "electric fence" on the border, among other things. (Snip) The memo urges lawmakers to call them "undocumented immigrants" and to avoid terms such as "aliens" or "illegals," which are seen as offensive and dehumanizing. Another phrase to avoid? "Send them all back."
Link repaired and Snip added by staff.

Comments:
Can we call them law breakers? Or should they be non abiding immigrants that should be in jail.

Yeah, let´s call it "Fairy Dust." Just call it anything to paper over what it actually is.

George Bush, in 2007, repeatedly insisted that the Kennedy-McCain plan ´´not an amnesty´´. He fooled no one.

And that´s when he lost me. Either he was stupid or a liar. In hindsight I might have even voted for Kerry (OK, probably not - but maybe Ralph Nader).

Second terms are almost always a disaster as the mistakes of the first term come to fruition.

And this group expects us to take them seriously??

Illegal immigrants and anchor babies are not the same you morons!! Although you can use both the phrases in the same sentence, illegal immigrant women come into this country to have anchor babies, who by virtue of being born in the US become "native born citizens".

Let me also remind you idiots....you can couch in whatever terms you want to use.....they are illegal because they entered without proper legal documentation.

Abide by the laws we have on the books now and they will go home by themselves, to make their country better! Open Alaskan oil drilling and put an oil pipeline on the boarder ( Cal to Texas) and the oil companies will pay for a fence to protect it!

The most disturbing sentence in this article is the first one - `conservative pro-immigration reform group`.

I prefer to call them Democrats in Training.

I know of a four word phrase --- three of the words are : Get, the, and out.

I wonder if they would be offended? Who can I contact to ask?

Rubio told the audience on Rush Limbaugh´s program that his plan was consistent with conservative principles. Schmucky Chucky Schumer and Dick Durbin are not conservatives, Mr. Rubio. Nor is amnesty for 11-20 million law-breaking residents a conservative principle -- I don´t care how much makeup you put on it. How stupid do you think we are?

It wouldn´t surprise me to find out that the Hispanic Leadership Network is a front for La Raza or Aztlan.

Yes, and burglars hate those signs that say: Keep Out and No Tresspassing; and for the same reason. They prefer to be welcome to steal.

Chicago picked as site for
Obama´s manufacturing initiative
Chicago Tribune, by Melissa Harris and Christi Parsons    Original Article
Posted By: mambo 5- 2/23/2014 12:05:21 PM     Post Reply
Chicago will be the site of a digital manufacturing institute backed by $70 million in federal money and another $250 million in private and other government funding, giving the city, once a factory town, a better chance to re-establish its credentials as a modern maker of things. The decision, to be announced officially Tuesday by President Barack Obama, was hotly anticipated by city and state officials who recognized the opportunity to jump-start high-tech manufacturing as a core component of Chicago’s economic vision.

Obama says odds of final Iran

President Obama said Saturday that he believed that the chances of a final, comprehensive nuclear agreement being struck with Iran are less than 50-50. However, Obama defended the interim deal struck between the U.S., Iran, and five other world powers last month in Geneva, saying that diplomacy had to be tested as a solution to the crisis and was the best way to prevent Tehran from acquiring automatic weapons. "If you ask me what is the likelihood that we´re able to arrive at the end state ... I wouldn´t say that it´s more than 50-50," Obama said. "But we have to try."

How affordable is the Affordable Care Act? Not very, it would seem for Washington state resident Jessica Sanford. The self-employed single mother was cited last month as an ObamaCare success story by President Obama in the Rose Garden. But according to Washington State Wire, she´s now finding out she doesn´t qualify for the tax credits she was originally told she´d get. Sanford, who told the news site she hasn´t had health insurance in 15 years, initially said she was excited by the prospect of purchasing a policy for her and her son under ObamaCare. Before ObamaCare, Sanford was getting health insurance rate

France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from Washington following fresh, "shocking" spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. The reports in French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel revealed that the National Security Agency secretly recorded tens of millions of phone calls in France and hacked into former Mexican President Felipe Calderon´s email account. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls described the revelations in Le Monde newspaper as "shocking", in an interview Monday with Europe 1 radio.

ObamaCare to shift costs of some prisoner
health coverage from states to feds
FoxNews, by Melissa Chrise    Original Article

ObamaCare may have its skeptics, but one group is decidedly optimistic -- prison inmates. "At least 50 percent of the [prison] population has symptoms of mental health disorders," said Brad Brockmann, executive director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights at Brown University. "With Medicaid expansion, we have an incredible opportunity to take care of the very neediest, the very poorest while freeing up huge amounts of money within the states through not having to provide that care in correctional settings."

Gov. actuaries say ObamaCare
will increase health care spending by $621 billion
over next 10 years

President Obama has made many promises about his signature health care plan, but one of the simplest was an assurance that it would lower national health care spending and save every family thousands of dollars. For example, in May 2009 he hailed "comprehensive health care reform -- so that we can do what I pledged to do as a candidate and save a typical family an average of $2,500 on their health care costs in the coming years." But now government actuaries have reached a different conclusion, finding that ObamaCare will actually increase health care spending by $621 billion over the next

Feds indict Obama friend Eric
Whitaker’s former chief of staff
Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Chris Fusco & Dave Mc Kinney    Original Article

A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Quinshaunta R. Golden — a onetime top aide to Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends — on bribery, theft and fraud charges, accusing her of embezzling about $433,000 in state health department funds. The money from the kickback scheme began flowing to Golden in July 2007, when Whitaker headed the Illinois Department of Public Health, and Golden was his chief of staff, the indictment alleges. It allegedly kept flowing until October 2008, by which time Golden and Whitaker had left state government

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
