I always find it amazing that the conservative right demonizes illegal immigrants, complaining of how much of a parasite they are on our society, but they never mention the people/industries that hire them and make a pretty penny exploiting them.
Those who hire illegal aliens should be prosecuted, but business must have the right to demand proof of citizenship without fear of litigation.

Businesses should also be required by law to report any illegal alien job applicants to the federal government for deportation.

<quoted text> Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts had a great outreach program for women who wanted an abortion. It was called 'Romneycare'. "[Romneycare]...It explicitly provided government funding of abortion. The Massachusetts health care reform established a government funded program, Commonwealth Care, that includes coverage of abortion. Commonwealth Care was made available for free to everyone in the Bay State who was below the poverty line and subsidized participation was made available to those above the poverty line."

False hope and promises are still alive and well. Big changes come about gradually - one person at a time.
I have hope more and more blacks will leave the democratic plantation for the same reasons those leading the way have.
I also have hope more whites will do the same.
Patience. Patience.
It's amazing how you continue to make it about race.

LA State senator ‘Guillory switches parties from (Democrat to Republican) reason given ‘Guillory’ claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them What Guillory said today is as Relevant as to what Malcolm X said back in the 60s!
Malcolm X said’ quote:“Democrats uses the Black Community for their own ‘Agenda’ Blacks are still economically depress, high unemployment and still asking for their Stuff and still voting for Democrats!! Today 40 plus years later Blacks still struggling under the Leadership of Democrats!!

What are you mumbling about?
Obamacare passed as another tax. Not that the US has an obligation to provide health insurance to all. You missed a lot in that ruling including the MAIN point.
And it was still upheld son.

Obviously missed the ruling since it's still going forward.

That was another issue brought up by the group last night - how difficult it is to have the courage to break away from the democratic party - for the reasons we all know. They become marginalized like conservatives who don't fall in line and walk in lockstep.
Gee, you do realize that "PRIMARIED" has become a verb, Like Sen Luger was PRIMARIED by a tea party candidate.

when was the last time you saw a Democratic incumbent lose his seat in a primary election because he wasn't liberal enough or didn't toe the party line lock step

Yea, right. Like the head of the IRS has time to personally attend every meeting regarding the economic recovery stimulus package, offshore accounts and the targeting of taxpayers' refunds in order to collect fines from those who don't buy health coverage via Affordable Health Care for America Act.
Obama was getting things done and it is only fitting that Shulman's assistant take up the slack. I surprised, with everything that was going on, he didn't visit the White House more often.
How will the IRS collect taxes (not fines) from those who don't pay taxes and have no refunds, or insufficient refunds, from which to collect the Obamacare tax?

<quoted text>That sounds like Mitt Romney's unofficial "job' at Bain Capital long after he left the company, except Romney's 'cash poor status' obscured the excessive amount of private wealth that he hid in off-shore accounts and tax-shelters.
Romney paid taxes on all his taxable income.

Pauld Deen isn't just an "old white woman from the south" who doesn't comprehend political correctness. Ignorance is no excuse. Her claim that her use of the N-word wasn't meant to be cruel or mean doesn't excuse her behavior.
Anyone with a brain knows that, in this day and age, the use of the N-word by white people is an ethnic slur. I think she, just like Detective Mark Fuhrman, is a liar when she claims that she hasn't used the term since the '80's. Fox News also uses Mark Fuhrman as a commentator and I guarantee you Fox News will defend her blindly.
Democrats are just that way: Paula Deen campaigned and voted for O'bama. ROTFLMAO.

The term "disabled" is meaningless in today's society, completely trivialized.
gee, did you ever stop to think that just maybe there are millions of Americans out there who want a job but there are none available.

companies are sitting on the largest cash reserves in decades, demand for consumer goods are up, but they just aren't hiring. Those with jobs are asked to increase productivity and work overtime...

meanwhile salaries for CEO's, Execs and board members are at all time highs. Some CEO's are making upward of 500X what their average worker makes......while the buying power income for the middle class hasn't stagnated for the last 30 years, its actually gone down

You people are sooooo stupid. Yes, UNCLE SAM will be paying the premiums which will be far less than the staggering cost of the Emergency Room visits previously utilized by "poor folks" without insurance.

"It’s a lose, lose, lose," said Sonal Ambegaokar, a health policy lawyer at the National Immigration Law Center, which advocates for low-income immigrants. She said denying broad insurance coverage to LEGAL immigrants hurt doctors and hospitals financially, prevented patients from getting needed care and increased costs for the health system."
