See what the man granting this pseudo pardon said about how unconstitutional it was when a former president did something similar. This is the same man that said if you like your present HC policy you can keep it and if you like your present Dr. you can keep that same Dr., PERIOD! He was opposed to gay marriage until he supported it. There will be no "boots on the ground" in Iraq on my watch he swore! His reason for this amnesty action he said is they gather our food and make our beds and they will do work Americans won't do, obviously he has a role in mind for them. He insist the granting of this temporary amnesty will result in those "coming out" paying taxes, a fine and otherwise be punished for entering the country illegally and be at the back of the line for citizenship.
How many Americans believe and trust him that has followed his actions as POTUS? Would you trust this man enough to leave the shadows where you can work for cash, stay under the radar and pay no taxes without being harassed and little risk of being deported? It will be interesting to see how many actually "come out" unless caught and forced to. If they are illegal and no one knows who they are how will those carrying out the executive order know if they have been here five years or not? What is magic about a five years requirement?
The most meaningful thing said was congress get off your behind and pass a comprehensive immigration law. He buggered that up by adding that I can sign. In other words he said let the pissing contest begin.
I wonder what would happen if the poor, sick, hungry, homeless and truly unfortunate American citizens already here were given the same consideration and attention?
H_B said...On average they pay about 6.4% of their income in state and local taxes, ITEP said.
WOW...6.4%, really, already? Why did Obama make such a big deal out of illegals he is pardoning will begin paying taxes?
alprova said....You admitted it. You didn't have to do it. You are the person who stated, "Did I just leave it as black women only?"
I did not say black women in any post I have ever made. You are a Lying S.O.S. when you say I did. I have said in the past it may be better to support abortion and pay for it with the provision that sterilization be included. It applies regardless of race and if you think black women are more prone to seek an abortion than any other race you are proving you are as ignorant as I had thought.
alprova said..Of course YOU don't. And right there is where I'm going to leave that one.
alprova, I am convinced you are one of the most prejudice people posting here although you think that your supportive comments are enough to suggest otherwise. You immediately see everything as black or white, Hispanic or citizen. Your comments and reactions like the one stating my position on abortion was only about black females and your assumption that anyone disagreeing with you must be prejudice since in your mind you aren't. Therefore, you assume anyone with a different view must be.
rickaroo said... He (MLK) was a brazen critic of capitalism and materialism.
rickaroo said...his embrace of democratic socialism
You are as full of it as Obama. WTF is democratic socialism. That is an oxymoron for sure.
You usual demeanor in this forum regarding the sterilization program you would love to found, for black women who would have "taxpayer funded" abortions, even knowing there is no such thing, betrays you.
Did I limit the proposal to black women? The number of white women seeking an abortion or that should be encouraged to have one out number blacks by far. I still think it would be a good move. I or you have no way of knowing what Dr. King would think about it. I don't think he would have found it objectionable.
inquiringmind said...Numbers do not lie, look at the numbers.
Figures don't lie but liars do figure. Today's numbers reflect those stopped and turned back at the border. The comparison is not apples to apples.
PASS A BILL!!!!
That is the only meaningful thing the man said and I do agree with that as long as it includes managing the borders. You have no idea just how many drugs are coming across and the resources committed by the Cartels to keep the flow possible. Of course you and Obama nor congress don't want to know since it may reflect on just how poorly the whole issue is being addressed.
Regarding fairM 6:23 am post. The people who today attack President Obama's every decision are of the same mindset of those who despised Dr. King.
Again, screw you. My parents actively supported him and I have always admired him. His "I have a dream speech" is the greatest ever made by those recognized in history.
Screw you Ki, I have never said one critical word about Dr. King and I never will. I resent the comparison with a prick like Obama.
Will you be surprised if less than one million of the five million "come in" for what he called temporary forgiveness of breaking the law?
How many real decisions has the man made? He seems to never have had an original thought and he displays no personal principles. Events have occurred and his handlers have him take credit while trying to shift blame and plead ignorance of unpopular events.
38% approve of this action meaning 62% do not endorse it. What is the real motivation? Could it be politically motivated?
