drama queen!
Don't sell...lock them up properly
i'll never reach the heights of the 2nd amendment drama queens who showed up for that meeting.

let's properly lock them up. once again a small faction has given a bad name to those of us who don't go to gun shows to see people get shot.

Neil Heslin, the father of a 6-year-old boy who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, stoically faced down pro-gun activists last night.

More than 1,000 people attended a hearing before the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Monday to share their views on gun control, USA Today reported. Among them was Heslin, who held a large framed picture of himself and his son Jesse as he urged officials to consider strengthening gun laws in Connecticut.

But as he gave his emotional testimony, pleading with lawmakers to improve mental health options and to ban assault weapons like the one Adam Lanza used to murder his child and 25 other people, his speech was interrupted by dozens of audience members, The Connecticut Post reported.

let's see the wingnut dance. no way to justify vilifying the parent of a child shot dead by a Bushmaster, so your excuses should be highly entertaining.

Where do you get that 11 million number?
Give us a source.
Fifteen years ago the official government estimate was 12 million, and everyone thought that number was too low then.
How about stating the actual number in the legislation, capping all conditions to that number.
Let's see how many Democrats support that bill. ROFLMAO
No special path to citizenship. Requirements for citizenship remain unchanged.
All illegal aliens working here get a H1b work visa.
All illegal aliens not working get deported.
DO NOT PASS ANY LEGISLATION WHATSOEVER THAT DOESN'T STATE A NUMBER OF ILLEGAL ALIENS APPLICABLE, CAPPING THE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL ALIENS BEING GRANTED THE CONDITIONS OF THE BILL.
See there? Problem solved. It's not really that difficult of a problem... provided the president is actually enforcing the law.(That's a laugh....)
Now, what's wrong with that solution?
you're asking someone to give you a source?

Mr. Guess wants that that he can never supply. more like can't, but why quibble.

and about those back taxes....

Contrary to popular belief, undocumented immigrants must pay taxes through the individual taxpayer identification numbers (ITIN) and employer identification numbers (EIN) in order to work safely in the U.S.

ITIN gives undocumented immigrants an IRS identification number without an SSN to pay taxes. The premise is that no other government agency has access to the information unless they need it for criminal or tax investigation purposes.

EIN provides undocumented workers with an IRS version of an SSN for business bank accounts and tax payments with just a mailing address. In this way, undocumented immigrants pay more to social services than they receive from these services. They pay $6 billion to $7 billion in social security and $72 billion to Medicare and unemployment insurance. But they cannot receive any social security, Medicare, or unemployment benefits unless they become legal.

By paying more taxes on social security, Medicare, and unemployment insurance and not receiving any benefits, undocumented immigrants end up supporting part of America’s social welfare system.

Some interesting data Duh A Vey-
Similar island surface responses have been found by Webb and Kench (2010), who studied 27 other atoll islands in the central Pacific, using historical aerial photography and satellite images over periods ranging from 19 to 61 years, during which time interval they say that instrumental records indicated a rate of sea-level rise of 2.0 mm per year in the central Pacific. Yet in spite of this sea level rise, they too found "no evidence of large-scale reduction in island area," noting that the islands "have predominantly been persistent or expanded in area on atoll rims for the past 20 to 60 years," adding that 43% of the islands "increased in area by more than 3% with the largest increases of 30% on Betio (Tarawa atoll) and 28.3% on Funamanu (Funafuti atoll)."
Islands Rimming Pacific Atolls: Their Response to Sea Level Rise
Volume 16, Number 4. C02Science.org . 23 January 2013
(Ps: Did you know an atoll is actually often a volcano crater, usually surrounded by an island, with a lagoon, comprised of coral?)

and how about repealing the sneak across the border and pop out an SSI and Section 8 Taker and he/she automatically becomes a citizen. No other country is so generous to criminals.

and how about enforcing the existing law that says new citizens can't collect welfare, etc for five years. ObamaCare was already written to skirt that one. Amnesty means millions more added to Obamacare benefits.

why did it take him so long?
took him so long? you must be talking about an Obama from an alternate universive if you don't see that this empty suit is the most divisive president ever.

as a matter of fact, I recently was watching a PBS show and saw apes flinging feces at their enemies and thought..."hmmmm THAT LOOKS FAMILIAR. oh yeah, Obama at his 2nd Inaugural Speech."

Nothing hurts the righties more than being reminded of their neanderthal thought process, unless of course you point out their hypocrisy. Obama bent over backward when he first was elected to a do nothing Congress that was hell bent on doing nothing and that is their only accomplishment. America sees and knows, the only hope you righties had was to keep Americans dumb, kinda like we see on here daily, Warped, distortions, lies and just plain dumb. Pretty much all the Republicans have going for them.

the only bending over done by Obama in his first term was in the direction of Ahmadinejad and all the others on his World Apology Tour.

the only hope you lefties have to keep America on the path to third world status, is to keep importing more third world poor to keep Americans dumb enough to keep watching Honey Boo and voting Democrat while dependent on the state.

and that includes the campaign to promote becoming a grandmother at age 30. the Dems have been SO successful with that one.

The Real ‘60 Minutes’ Revelation

The Obama-Hillary interview signaled that we have passed an important tipping point in American politics: Democrats are now the regular guys, and conservatives are the weirdos.

....The Republicans? It’s not just the extreme ideology. Of course it’s that, but it’s more. The whole shtick is old. Where once the Middle American ear may have been soothed by that low Cheney rumble belching out its grave assessments of the world situation, today it is accosted by all those caliginous Southern accents warning of socialism and collapse, and thinks: will these people ever shut up? Georgia Congressman Paul Broun told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week that Obama “upholds … the Soviet Constitution.” On any given week, I could fill a whole column, or two, with such nuggets. Enough already.

While Obama and Clinton were speaking, so was Paul Ryan, to a conservative gathering, where he said:“There are two ways to respond to defeat: Either you can deny it, or you can learn from it. I choose to learn from it. The way I see it, our defeat is all the more reason to lay out our vision with even more specifics—and with a broader appeal.”

What he’s saying there, and throughout the speech, is that the GOP isn’t going to change its stripes a bit.“Broader appeal” means I suppose better (read: more dishonest) packaging for a bunch of reactionary policies that Americans don’t want.

Conservatives, you can call me and others like me all the names you want, and you can whine about the evil CBS all you want. But Kroft and his network were actually in touch here with the pulse of the country, which wants Obama to succeed and Hillary to go have a nice long rest (and, maybe, get ready for 2016). Meanwhile, even Roger Ailes has gotten sick of Sarah Palin. Get the picture?
