GOP Loves Guest Workers. American Workers? Not So Much

Lower-earning men are not less likely than higher-earning men to father children, but they are far less likely to marry and live with the mother. The boys raised in these disrupted homes are much more likely to get in trouble in school, and they do worse than other populations in school. The current unemployment rate is 7.7 percent nationwide but it is 11.2 percent for those with less than a high school diploma.

So what did the Republican Washington establishment do in the recent immigration negotiations? They pushed for the largest possible guest worker program with the lowest possible wages. The impact of such a guest worker program on the wages of Americans without college degrees would likely be small, but as an indication of GOP priorities it is a much larger problem. Faced with a slow-motion economic and social disaster afflicting the least educated and lowest-earning American citizens and residents, the Republicans are focusing on driving the wages for the lowest-paying jobs even lower.

Most gay marriage laws currently contain religious freedom clauses protecting churches and, in some cases, individual believers. But if such views really are morally equivalent to racism in the minds of our political class, one must expect the law eventually to treat them equivalently.

No, Tell Us What You Really Think:
Black Congressmen Let Loose On The GOP Vote Suppression

Like Jeffries, Rangel accused Republicans of trying to prevent minorities from voting. But he doesn’t believe the this strategy would ultimately yield victories for conservatives. In fact, Rangel suggested failing to embrace diversity could lead to the demise of the GOP.

“The Republican Party is on a self-destructive mission. When we got rid of the Dixiecrats, they joined the Republican Party. When we had moderate Republicans in the State of New York, they chased them out,” Rangel said.“They are prepared to destroy their country to keep their base. They know that they are going out of business. They have had their last presidential campaign as we know it, so they’re doing two things; stop people who don’t look like them from coming into the country, don’t let those who got in vote. And those people who think like we do, do all you can do in the state level to prevent them from coming to the polls.”

I'm sure you'll find a way to blame that on Obama too, but also to not give him any credit if it gets worked out.
Why would anyone blame Obama if North Korea follows through with its threats? There's going to be a lot more to worry about than Obama if Kim Sung Un is that crazy.

More than likely Obama will blame Bush though.

It's just a song, carol. I didn't write it. If you want to complain, talk to Seamus. No, nope. This is all political. I mean to see the tea party dead. One partier at a time.
You see, carol, once upon a time I minded my own business and let you crazy people go to church 5 days a week seeking absolution from God knows what. And then here's what happened: you decided you could leave the church and evangelize about all the nifty stuff you learned through prayer, and via the internet. At that point, you crossed a line. When you crossed that line you appeared in my front yard. That was a mistake, dear, for I didn't ask you to, you just sort of appeared.
I know you think you have a right to do what you do and say what you say, that's why you clowns are such dedicated constitutionalists. But here's the thing: I don't want you (pl.) in my yard and now I'm going to chase you out of it. I'm a nice guy, carol, until you cross me. I know you know this, I understand christians and capitalists. But you've suddenly appeared in my viewfinder and your endless chatter is interfering with my fishing. You should've stayed in church preaching to each other about all the silly nonsense you believe in. Fucking with my fishing was a mistake. Now you're (pl.) gonna pay.
I'm sorry, did you say something?

In yet another bad omen for what has become known as Obamacare, a new report reveals that thousands of cancer clinics across the nation are being forced to turn away Medicare patients suffering from cancer, due to the fact that the government is no longer in a position to foot their bill.

As one cancer doctor put it,“If we continued treating our Medicare patients, at this time, we’d be out of business in a week.”

The cuts went into effect on April 1, 2013 after the federal government was forced into “sequestration,” after a special committee of Congress tried but failed to reduce government spending by at least $1.2 trillion.

http://constitutionschool.com/2013/04/04/canc...

It's only just the beginning.

Now the government is hiring "navigators" to help people understand the darn thing.

In California alone, the cost to taxpayers for these navigators is in the billions.

God help us.

The people approved of racial discrimination. They were brought in line.
They'll be brought in line again on gay marriage. They have no choice. That's what this country is about. If you don't like it, find a better one.
Putting all your hopes in "majority rule" or, more precisely in this case, the tyranny of the majority - is stupid and shortsighted because the chances you will always be the majority are slim.
The majority now supports same sex marriage, so there goes your little majority argument anyway.
