I know this is a week or so old, but for those of you who have not seen it, I would categorieze this as “must-see” video. This is from the Hispanic Leadership Network Conference in Miami Florida on January 27th. Marco Rubio is one of those Freshmen Republicans in Washington, but his star shines bright on the horizon. I expect many good things from this man in the future, and there couldn’t be a more important time in America’s history for people of Rubio’s character to become involved in politics to help right this ship.
…when the choices that are put before us today are dangerous ones, because if we choose this path of pitting people against each other, if we buy into this notion that our economy really can’t grow fast enough for all of us to prosper so we’re going to have to somehow empower government to distribute the wealth of this country among us, we’ve chosen to become like everybody else. We’ve chosen to become like the countries that your parents and grandparents came here to get away from. And that’s a powerful message. And that’s the message that we need to deliver. And that’s the message we need to work on delivering. It’s a winning message, but it’s a difficult message to get to because the gateway issue of immigration stands in the minds of so many people who we live next to and love.
The first segment of this piece is focused on illegal immigrants who are bitching and moaning about having to pay out-of-state tuition, which is part of the construct of HB 87. They briefly interview a female illegal immigrant student who laments that college is not going to be as affordable as she’d like. Since when the hell did education become a right? And you all have the NERVE to equate your struggles with “Brown vs. Board of Education?” Seriously? The new GA law is not requiring separate schools for illegal Mexicans and whites; it’s only enforcing the dang Federal laws that already exist.
What part of “illegal” are you guys not understanding? Why do you think you have a right to anything? You’re here in the country ILLEGALLY, so why are you expecting the red carpet to be rolled out for you? Out-of-state tuition should be the LEAST of your complaints. You should be happy your asses aren’t in JAIL!
Well, now we’ve gone and done it. Georgia is joining other front-running states getting serious about criminal illegal invaders coming across the Mexican border. We now join Arizona and Utah who both have their own stringent anti-illegal immigration laws on the books.
And, as expected, we got a bit of “celebrity” outrage expressed this weekend in Atlanta. Apparently Carlos Santana has his thong in a bunch over this new law, as well as Arizona’s. He was at the Braves-Phillies game, and used this opportunity to admonish us both, saying “The people of Arizona, and the people of Atlanta, Georgia, you should be ashamed of yourselves.” Of course this event was baseball’s annual Civil Rights game, so that explains Carlos’ attendance, I guess. But we should be ashamed of ourselves why, Carlos? For trying to enforce the laws that the Federal government won’t? Do we not have the right to try and protect our own State here in Georgia, Carlos?
Here’s the breakdown of the new legislation and the dates the provisions of Georgia House Bill 87 will take effect, from the AJC:
It’s always a treat when Jon Voight visits the set of Huckabee. He tells it like it is, and his prose is always on point.
America’s mayor, Rudy Giuliani comes on, and they discuss the current state of affairs of this country under the leadership *cough* of President Obama. In short? It’s not a good outlook, and we need to make changes BEFORE 2012 if we are going to save this country.
Previously I wrote about an interesting email from the D.C.C.C., ostensibly from Nancy Pelosi herself, inviting me to enter a Sweepstakes to win the chance for me and a guest to have dinner in Los Angeles with the Speaker and President Barack Obama. I noted the irony of it was that it came just one day after U.S. District Judge, Susan Bolton, all-but-neutered Arizona’s S.B. 1070, yet the official rules say, in part:
“Sweepstakes only open to citizens of the U.S. and lawful permanent U.S. residents who are residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia…“
Well, obviously I didn’t enter the Sweepstakes, but I was quite surprised when I got a follow-up email today. The email was from a rather puzzled Jon Vogel, D.C.C.C. Executive Director. The tone seemed incredulous that I didn’t jump at the chance to try and win the dinner! From Mr. Vogel’s email:
Friend — did you see the Speaker’s email yesterday? The DCCC is offering a special opportunity to its members and top supporters for you and a guest to meet Speaker Pelosi and President Obama August 16th in Los Angeles. The deadline is quickly approaching.
