    Perhaps this is the offical opening “salvo” of the second wave of the “shot heard round the world” in November 2010…The Tea Party is about to ramp up their muscle and hopefully that will spell doom for Obama and many democrats. I live in Texas and will be voting for whomever the winner of the run-off was…but in this case, a Cruz victory speaks volumes. There is a slight feeling in the air of Romney gaining strength!

      “the last gasp of old angry uninformed white guys. ” Ageism, racism, and sexism, all in half a sentence. Real piece of work there. I predict the zapper will make an appearance.

      Ever wonder why you believe you are in hell?

      The funny thing is that Burka is, also, an “old angry uninformed white guy”…he’s just the tattered remnant of the old, LBJ-Democrat establishment (RIP 1994 when W beat Richards). He’s now asserting he’s worried about the current GOP Texas establishment…which does make a little bit of sense given that if he can’t kneel down for liberal Democrats he can at least kneel down for RINOs. But Cruz isn’t a RINO…there is no place for a Burka in a Cruz-led Texas.

      The reality is that the Latino vote isn’t a minefield for the GOP but, actually, is the assurance of conservative governance long in to the 21st century. To be sure, Latinos vote heavily Democrat – but unlike past immigrant groups (for instance, the Irish), Latinos are not being nearly as uniform in their voting patterns…it took more than a century for the GOP to start making inroads in to Democrat strength among Irish-descended voters; the GOP is, as it were, already starting with about 33% of the Latino vote. And as Latinos are strongly family orientated, heavily Catholic (with a dash of Evangelical, as well) and socially conservative, they are actually ripe for GOP campaign efforts. The fact that the two of the three Latinos in the Senate come January, 2013 will be GOP speaks volumes of what is really happening (if the GOP gets lucky in New Jersey then there will only be two Latinos in the Senate as the one Democrat Latino will have been defeated). Note that there are two Latino Governors in the United States – both are Republican…and the Democrats had to reach down to a mayoralty to find an attractive Latino to speak at their convention. Latinos, I think, will soon understand that Democrat blandishments really amount to “vote for us so that we can be in charge and you can be the hewers of wood and drawers of water for the Ruling Class”.

      The really good news is that if Romney wins then he’ll have in the Senate two Latino Republican Senators who can lead the way in crafting an immigration reform which won’t be tainted by either liberal demands for amnesty or stupid-business demands for cheap labor. We can actually get an immigration reform which provides for strict border security, clears a path to citizenship and provides a rational guest-worker program. Once that is done, the only thing left is for the GOP to reap the majority Latino support which is the GOP’s by right of 80% agreement with Latino attitudes.

        Mark, why a path to citizenship? Did they come here to be citizens? No they came here to work and for a better life. People who came here to be citizens came here legally. Let them work let them have better lives but why make them citizens?

      • GMB August 1, 2012 / 10:20 am

        I agree. Giving those that came here illegally a path to citizenship is a slap in the face to all those who did so legally. It rewards those who ignored the laws of our land for committing a crime.

        Is that the message you want to send?

      • Mark Edward Noonan August 1, 2012 / 8:03 pm


        Justice and mercy – it was our failure, as citizens, to ensure that our government provided border security which de-facto invited the illegals in to the country. In simple justice, we can’t deport those who came in that way (at our de-facto invitation) and who have otherwise behaved themselves in the United States – and especially true if they’ve had children while here (that the 14th amendment needs to be modified in this regard goes without saying…but it isn’t modified today and those who were born under its current formulation have every right to citizenship). Mercy comes in with the fact that even if we can technically deport everyone who crosses illegally, neither you nor I nor anyone is about to get out the jackboots and start deporting some poor guy who works 75 hours a week as sub-minimum wage to keep his wife and children fed (the guy who is on welfare or who broke other laws is, of course, a different story.

      • Eagle Eye August 1, 2012 / 8:58 pm

        I didn’t mean to deport them, just don’t reward them with full citizenship. They can stay they can work they can have work visas but citizenship? Never. There has to be some consequence for disrespecting our country and its laws.

      • Mark Edward Noonan August 1, 2012 / 10:48 pm


        Some of these people have been here for 20 years or more – if they have fully integrated in to American society and haven’t broken any laws other than the one they broke getting in to the country, I want them to have a path to citizenship.

      • Eagle Eye August 2, 2012 / 12:07 am

        And what about the people who made the sacrifices it took to get here legally follow our laws and work for their citizenship? Pretty much a slap in the face to them. What do the lawbreakers get? How will it change their lives except to tell them and their children and grandchildren that rules don’t matter and that different rules apply to different people.

      • Mark Edward Noonan August 2, 2012 / 12:21 am


        Justice does require that we differentiate between those who came here legally and those who didn’t. The first bit of justice is that those who came illegally and are deemed worthy of being on a path to citizenship should have to wait somewhat longer, after they file for citizenship, to obtain it than those who came in legally. If its 5 years for a legal immigrant, then make it 10 years for an illegal immigrant who is now made legal. Double, also, whatever the monetary cost is (I believe that it is a substantial sum, given what I’ve heard from people who are legal immigrants). While I have no problem allowing the son of a legal immigrant to be granted citizenship after completing one year’s honorable military service, make it four years if the child is of an illegal parent. That sort of thing. First and foremost, in all immigration reform, is to secure the border…to ensure that this is the very last time we have to do this sort of thing. And that border won’t become secure until we, the people, effectively demand it.

      • Eagle Eye August 2, 2012 / 9:33 am

        So the good honest people who respect this country and its laws have to stay at home till they qualify to even come here while the lawbreakers get to live and work here all along. Citizenship is a symbolic gesture we make to the lawbreakers not because it ever mattered to them but because it lets us feel kind and compassionate. If they are not citizens even if they can still live here it sends a message that our laws do mean something. If these people ever wanted to be citizens they would have worked to become citizens, but all they wanted was what the country had to offer them without showing any respect for the country. Even being here without breaking laws is as much self interest as respect for us. A nation of laws has to have the same laws apply to everybody.

      • Amazona August 2, 2012 / 8:01 pm

        I have never understood why people think that offering citizenship to illegals is a good idea. Oh, I understand why the Left does it—it is to buy votes. But aside from that it makes no sense to me.

        People who wanted to become citizens and respected us and the process went through the process. People who just wanted to make a living, to “have a better life”, couldn’t have cared less about the process and couldn’t have had less respect for our system.

        I don’t understand how making these people citizens can in any way be a good thing for our country. For one thing, if we tighten up our borders and write good new laws and enforce all laws, this is a generational thing anyway, and within a couple of generations people will either have been born here or will have gone through the proper process.

        How does citizenship add to the quality of life for these people? How does in benefit the United States?

        And what message does it send? To me, the message is “Don’t worry about the law—just do what you want to do and be patient and play the victim and make a big enough fuss and they will cave in and change the laws so you don’t feel bad.”

        That, and “different laws for different people”.

        I have suggested a multi-part plan for immigration reform.

        1. Make new laws making it a felony to be here without proper documentation
        2. Give illegals two months (or three, or four) to register as people here without proper documentation. There is a small fine associated with this, as is appropriate given the stupidity of our laws which make it illegal to ENTER the country without papers but not so much to BE here.
        3. Upon registration each illegal gets a TEMPORARY visa allowing him or her to continue his or her life in this country while the information given on the registration is investigated. (Many who have been arrested and have fingerprints on file will leave at this point.)
        4. Any foreigner found here after the end of the registration period without proper documentation or proof of having registered is charged with a felony with mandatory jail time and then deported, NEVER TO BE ALLOWED TO RETURN. Being caught a second time would mean prison time and deportation.
        5. Those who pass the investigation, who have a clean record and a good work record and a job, can get a work visa good for, say, ten years—but the first year is probationary, depending on passing an English proficiency test and attending classes in American culture, including how to use medical clinics instead of emergency rooms, etc. At the end of the first year those who do not pass go home.
        6. This is for people already here, immediate families. It does not allow people to bring in parents, grandparents, cousins, etc.
        7. At the end of the work visa period, the applicant has two choices—apply for a green card (permanent residency) or go home.
        8. Establish something like the old Bracero program, where seasonal workers can come and go legally. This will encourage them to take families back to Mexico, as they can live so much better there on the money earned in a season here, and decrease the burden of families on our system.
        9. Make it clear that no one who has gone through this system will ever be eligible for citizenship—that we value citizenship and we do not hand it out to people who have shown such disrespect for our nation and our laws. We will be compassionate, we will understand the need to have better life and we will make that opportunity available, but citizenship is special.

      • Mark Edward Noonan August 2, 2012 / 9:58 pm

        Eagle and Amazona,

        We invited them in – even those who were always on about illegal immigration invited them in. We, the people, failed to ensure that our government took care of the simple task of securing our border. Our fault, not the illegals. I refuse to place 100% of punishment upon 50% of the crime.

    Vulgarity calling for the removal of your post and any others that repeat it. //Moderator

    • GMB August 1, 2012 / 6:07 am

      There is a big difference between Cruz and barky. Cruz means what he says. barky is another story which any bozo should understand by now.

      As Mark said, the TEA Party is alive and well. It is time for the undocumented donkrat voter machine to have have that monkey wrench thrown into it.

      Media Matters? Really?

      The problem, creepy assclown, is that your little link, shows a picture and no DATA behind it to corroborate your dumb ASSertion. Also, the chart ends only one year after obAMATEUR begins his rule. There is nothing there to show that the doubling (in ten years – has obAMATEUR been pResident for 10 years?) was due to the obAMATEUR administration. But for mindless drones such as yourself, that simple little picture will convince you.

      AND of course, that is BEFORE, obAMATEUR CLOSED BORDER STATIONS IN FOUR STATES AND, THROUGH EXECUTIVE ORDER, decided not to enforce certain aspects of IMMIGRATION LAW which in effect grants AMNESTY.


      So, YOUR “the ALL TIME HIGHS of the Obama administration” is a LIE. The previous administration, which did build up the Border Patrol, for EIGHT YEARS has been nullified by obAMATEUR’s THREE year rule.

      He has closed stations when we need them more than ever. He has made the border more porous and even armed the drug dealers on the other side.

      Brag about those, creepy assclown.

    • bozo August 1, 2012 / 9:39 am

      Humble apology for the vulgarity. Not sure what it was, but I’ll try to keep it grade school from now on.

      Cruz wants to triple the border patrol from 20 to 60 thousand people, apparently single-handedly, according to a recent interview. Doesn’t specify how it will be paid for, though, and doesn’t seem to mind increasing the size of government payroll or reach.

      Ah, I know what it was. Sorry, I honestly have this picture in my head of TEA Partiers wearing those hats with things hanging from them, and insensitively used a term with a clear double-entendre.

      Won’t happen again.

      • Eagle Eye August 1, 2012 / 9:59 am

        Bozo no one here really needs to share your fond memories of the good times you and your little buddies shared (share?) that you remember when you see people at Tea Party gatherings with little things hanging off their hats.

        Hint: TMI. Way too much TMI.

      • GMB August 1, 2012 / 10:08 am

        I am pretty sure Mr. Cruz and thr rest of the TEA Party can find a couple hundred thousand bureaucrats occupying desks in D.C. and replace them with more useful people. Lets start off by disbanding the Education and Energy departments

        Fair enough?.

      • neocon1 August 1, 2012 / 2:39 pm

        throw in the EPA, ATF, IRS, OSHA, then we have a deal.

      • GMB August 1, 2012 / 3:49 pm

        Neo, got to start somewhere. Sooner or later all those departments that have duties not included to the feds in our Constitution will need to be ended.

        Energy and education is just a good start. Disband those two and we will plenty of money to fund the Border Patrol.

        “flush them all at once with the big Uboma”

        It would be nice to flush them all at once. However both boehner and mcconnell would have to have a spine transplant. I don’t see it happening.

    Went to Chick Fil A for lunch today. Huge line out the door, drive through traffic wrapped around the block – I didn’t have time for the 30 minute wait, so I gave some money to the nice lady in front of me and told her to buy someone lunch. Speaking with the gentleman behind me – I stated that this turnout was great to see, to which he replied “this November will be 2010 x 2” I had to agree. I don’t think liberals have any idea as to how so many people have turned against them, and their government centered societal dreams.

    By the way, this is the day that the Obama regime has mandated that Faith based, conscientious people and organizations must violate their principles and provide abortifacient insurance coverage. Just another reason, in a long line of reasons, why Obama must go!!!!

        Well, just dial up one of the many liberal-fascists on your side and have them do something nasty to the Red Cross…that’ll gin up a response, it seems.

      • bozo August 3, 2012 / 8:39 pm

        Or maybe the Red Cross should just ban gays from receiving transfusions, so the Christians might turn up by the thousands in a show of support.
