Useful Idiots

Nicely put!

America's Useful Idiots:

The overriding stratagem of socialism/Marxism is "the ends justify the means" -- thus, no lie is too big to tell, no promise too outrageous to promote, and no tactic out of bounds.  The overall strategy of the Obama re-election team confirms this mindset as it conducts a demagogic campaign based solely on emotional appeals to that part of the population its operatives consider "useful idiots."

I Owe Illegal Immigrants Nothing Other than Decency

I, as a US citizen, owe illegal immigrants nothing other than decency - They deserve to be treated as a human being… respectfully, with courtesy and kindness, the same as I would hope they would treat me if I were in their country.

I do not owe them a job, or access to the benefits this country provides, or for monies I work for to be distributed to them… basically, they "have no dog in the hunt" - There illegal. How can a member of any group start on equal ground when that person broke the rules/laws in the first place?

Illegal Immigrants, supports to re-create 1966 march

An excerpt:

"I deserve the same rights as anybody else, and I'm not given those rights because I am an 'undocumented'.... For those reasons I can't go to school. I can't get an actual job that I would want."

Really? You believe you deserve the same rights as someone that made sacrifices to be a legal citizen? That is fair to you?

Well if that is your definition of what is "right", fair, and somehow owed you - I am not sure I would want you as part of the society I live in! There are millions of legal immigrants that migrated here and EARNED their citizenship legally and in many cases with great sacrifice… Are you some how better them? What because you have a "harder life"… and who gets to determine that you?

GIVE ME A BREAK, I owe you nothing; however, to be part of this great country and reap the benefits you owe it plenty!

Worth Noting

I felt it was worth noting - An American holiday out in favor for a Muslim holiday...anybody got a problem with this? I reserve my comments. for now.Tyson Drops Labor Day for Muslim Holiday
SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. — Workers at the Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day but will instead be granted the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr.

Do we Trust Polls?

Speaking as an American born citizen who is married to an American citizen who gained her citizenship through proper immigration - Not by amnesty nor a blanket granting, but by hard work and devotion to her "new" country - I feel I can speak to this... What polls? How was the question presented? Did the pollster ask - Are you for making illegal immigrant, those mostly of one ethnicity, citizens over night or pardoning these illegal immigrants immediately even if they do not want to be citizens?

Did they ask that question and do you really believe that most Americans would say yes? If you do, I have a nice piece of land in the swaps of Louisiana for sale or a grand deal on part of the Brooklyn bridge!

The President, one who I voted for and would still vote for given my 2004 choices, says we need to read the bill - Well I am not sure he did... Have you? By the way, I ain't the President on this one!

Amnesty? What amnesty? Critics substitute fear for facts - Yahoo! News

Although polls show that most Americans support giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship,
