Hispanic group to GOP
congressmen: Watch your language

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cameron Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2013 9:35:46 AM

A leading GOP Hispanic group has a message for Republicans as Congress begins debate on immigration: Watch your language. The Hispanic Leadership Network, a center-right group looking to woo Latinos to the GOP, sent Republican congressmen of all stripes a list of suggested "Dos and Don´ts of Immigration Reform" Monday afternoon. The memo was obtained by The Hill. "Tone and rhetoric will be key in the days and weeks ahead as both liberals and conservatives lay out their perspectives. Please consider these tonally sensitive messaging points as you discuss immigration, regardless of your position," Hispanic Leadership Network

Very heavy sigh. Where´s the warning to the vitriolic Democrats?

GOP congressmen don´t need to watch their language. But then they don´t have the balls to fight back, either.

Message to mexicans - we will treat you exactly how you treat Americans who go across the border. Jail in filthy conditions and no attorneys but mexicans but, whoops they cannot cross the border either, we will treat mexicans the same way.
They have no laws and don´t respect ours and presume to give us instructions. Stuff it where the sun don´t shine.

Yes, tone can be a concern.

However, I truly believe the GOP needs to make this a much larger immigration issue, and look for ways to increase the legal quota to gain citizenship that will include China, Russia, England, Germany and a host of other countries looking to ingite the American economy.

The current proposal will only allow current illegals a path to gain their green card, which then can lead to applying for citizenship.
You can´t vote with a green card, and the U.S. gov´t will have a record of who has one.

Watch our language or what?
You might not vote Republican??
Hispanics voted for Obama 75:25% In fact, for the last 32 years, Hispanics have voted roughly 2/3 for Dems, 1/3 for Repubs--even for Reagan, who gave them amnesty. Even for GWB and McLame, who promised them comprehensive immigration reform.

So Hispanics are going to vote Dem anyhow, why bother to watch our language?

Get out of the USA if you don´t like our language, and I am happy you are offended.

Tell her to learn English and/or go back to where she still feels the bond; it sure ain´t America if after that long she still clings to her ancestors culture.

Sounds like something straight out of the George W/Jeb Bush playbook.

Remember what George W Bush called patriotic Americans trying to defend the borders he left open? He called those Americans "vigilantes." As if Americans have no right to have their laws enforced.

Bush knew what he was doing. He WANTED his massive underclass to take hold. Not because it would be in America´s national interest. But because it serves "global" interests. Making America more dependent and less interested in sovereignty required a shift in the population, and getting it could not have been easier. GW left the door open, and Hispanic illegals walked right in by the millions. They are poorly educated, often illiterate in their own language and partial to large families they cannot afford to support.

And here come the RINOs again, demanding our imported underclass be given a "path to citizenship." Making low information voters forever the new normal.

What could possibly go wrong?

I guess NO illegal ´alien anchor babies.´

The only Hispanics that by law that could continue to use Spanish as an official language were those living in the Gadsden Purchase covered by the Treaty of Guadalupe.[there was no discussion as to how long this would be, many thinking it was only till the generation of those living at the time passes away]

The US Colonies after the Rev War voted to make English the Official Language of the new Nation ............... by one vote over German. [such was the vehemence against the Former Mother Country]

The Constitutional Amendment currently interpreted as allowing for ´anchor babies´ into perpetuity was only intended to ensure that former slaves were given US citizenship.

You have to admit that the liberal media can easily get Stupid Party politicians to make seemingly ignorant and off the wall comments that have nothing to do with their jobs or reality. The Stupid Party lost two US Senate seats because of ignorant and off the wall comments about rape in the last election.

There is a big different between a lot of US citizens who are also Hispanics and the illegal alien population that Stupid Party politicians are too ignorant to recognize. So maybe this memo will assist them in not falling for liberal media questions to them that are designed to trick Stupid Party politicians into spontaneously uttering ignorant and off the wall comments regarding the general Hispanic population.

"Language"? How about no more "press one for English"?

#2: I think you can drop the "please" from your statement. They´re not here because we asked them to come.

#10: See #11.

#11: Bingo! No homework for you -- all week!

#10: My family´s been here a whole lot less than 300 years, but we don´t consider ourselves "German-Americans." a. We´re here, and Americans, because from the original immigrant family members to today, we want to be Americans. Oh -- and Teddy Roosevelt was right about hyphenated Americans. And while there may not literally be a hyphen in "Hispanics," there sure is in the mindset. That is, if they have room for any "American-ness" in themselves. One could well argue there is little.

#18 is correct on his Constitutional point. No such thing as birthright anchor babies both under the Constitution, and also by the ancient legal principle that a criminal may not profit from his crime[s], though I´ve never seen anyone else make that point. It´s a big one.

The article is about Hispanics.

While in rare cases [gov´t offices?] it may occur, I´ve never heard "Press 2 for Italian; press 3 for Gaelic; press 4 for Swedish; press 5 for Macedonian; press 6 for Austrian"; and so on.

Any smart company that does enough legitimate business with non-English speakers as to need a "press 2" ought to save everyone´s time and simply set up a separate phone number. DUH.

Of course, my grandfather came here as ´Stash´ and had no english, but died ´John´ who spoke no Polish.

Why don´t ´hispanics´ and blacks despise the very people who claim they are inable to do ANYTHING by themselves? Are they truly not aware that they are being called deficient by the democrats?

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
