Bill Kristol tells Marco
Rubio to ´walk´ on plan

Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 5/22/2013 6:39:34 AM

The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol has some advice for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on the Senate’s immigration reform bill: Walk away. “He should walk away from it,” Kristol said Tuesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “He should say, I made a good faith effort, but you know what, this is not a piece of legislation.”The Weekly Standard editor told Ingraham that Rubio — who Kristol said he considers “a friend” — should step away from the “big government bill.” Instead, immigration reform should be dealt with issue-by-issue rather than by one comprehensive piece of “bad legislation,”

Walk away? No, he should have NEVER involved himself in this fetid piece of dugout scrapings. Too late for Marco to "walk away" now...

I´m disliking the ads during Rush´s show from Shrubio and Paul Ryan telling us we should like their new immigration plan. Enjoy your time in the sun, Shrubio. It grows shorter by the day.

#2 I agree they turn my stomach when I hear them tout how great this gang of 8 legislation will be for the country. This piece of crap legislation will be the final nail in the destruction of this country and we have these Republicans pushing for it. Not one penny to Rubio or Ryan ever. We just had a sheriff killed by a drunk illegal who had been arrested and deported for dui previously. Houston is a sanctuary city and this kind of criminal activity by illegals happens all the time. No citizenship for any illegal give them a work permit and that´s all. The border will never be secure neither party is really interested only those of us that live in border states seem to care.

I don´t usually agree with Bill Krisol on much, but this time I do.

A series of bills, starting with securing the border and letting that stand for a few years to ensure that it will be effective - is the only way to do this, if indeed we should do it at all.

I don´t feel any pressing NEED to get these people legal standing in our country. They came here illegally, we don´t owe them anything. I have to laugh at Rubio & Ryan´s commercial when they say the illegals will not qualify for federal welfare programs, we all know the dems will never let that stand, just as we all know the dems have no intention of securing the border for even a minute.

Run away, Marco, don´t just walk.

Those radio commercials with Rubio and Ryan run about 10 times per day here in central PA, and every time I hear the two politicians formerly known as princes of conservatism, I have to wonder how much money it took to entice them to ruin their careers. Obviously, there are big bucks behind the commercials too. Some very large businesses are in bed with LaRaza on this travesty.

I turn those commercials off. I don´t think your brain is right if you think a big government solution is the answer and actually believe our huge bureaucracy would be able to implement it as the law reads. Again, rewarding people for bad behavior is never a good thing.

Agree with Kristol on this one. Piece by piece. And that approach is especially possible and practical with Immigration. The word ´´Comprehensive´´ means ´´Hold on to your hats, America. You´re about to be screwed!´´

Comprehensive Obamacare, a massive train wreck...
Comprehensive Dodd-Frank, protects the big boys, kills the little guys...
ERGO: No more ´´comprehensive´´ anything!!!

Rubio persuaded himself that he could make a name for himself with this issue by pushing for enforcing border protection first. Like the Chambers of Commerce, John McCain, the labor unions, etc, he has been co-opted. Kristol is right, we need to fight against comprehensive reform and tackle the issue bit by bit, starting with enforcing the existing laws.

Any Republican who facilitates this liberal Democrat long-term strategic political initiative that is designed to eventually expand the liberal Democrat voter base in the years ahead would have to be a political moron.

This bill has core provisions that fund the very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups who are politically allied to the liberal Democrats, so that they can essentially chaperone the 11 to 20 million illegal aliens who would receive immediate amnesty, plus untold millions of their foreign relatives who would then get to come here, through a liberal Democrat created "path to citizenship" the object of which is to eventually register the vast majority of those people as Democrat voters in the years ahead.

At the same time the bill would suspend all the employer sanctions and verification requirements for 5 years. During that period employers would be able to hire new illegal aliens at will, without incurring any civil penalties. That in itself is an invitation to millions of prospective new illegal aliens to gain entry to the USA and take an American job, thus loading up the country with a new illegal alien population group which would serve as a basis for another liberal Democrat amnesty before some future election.

Sharyl Attkisson hasn’t landed yet, but there’s every reason to suppose she’s not going to finish her career in local news in Duluth. For starters, Atkinson is an accomplished reporter. But she’s also taken one of the surefire moves to help ensure her relevance – not to mention potential TV and book contracts – by criticizing the very media establishment in which she spent her career. It’s an increasingly well-traveled path: Over the course of the past two decades, a handful of journalists have left mainstream media jobs while decrying what they saw as an inherent bias in their own industry.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep.

You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Even preschoolers are getting suspended from U.S. public schools -- and they´re disproportionately black, a trend that continues up through the later grades.Data to be released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm finds that black children represent about 18 percent of children enrolled in preschool programs in schools, but almost half of the students suspended more than once. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at least one preschool child.Advocates have long said that get-tough suspension and arrest policies in schools have contributed to a "school-to-prison" pipeline that snags minority students, but much of the

For decades, rapid economic growth has been the norm for developed countries. An educated workforce, a large population boom, major technological advances, and abundant fossil fuels were the key components of growth, generating substantial and broadly distributed increases in standards of living in many countries. We have grown so used to such growth that we inevitably view it as a panacea for a host of economic ills, whether it´s a deep recession or income inequality. We now understand, however, that the postwar growth paradigm is not environmentally sustainable. We also know that the shared prosperity it once delivered is itself

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
