Some proggies don't think so.

This became apparent when Alex Sink, the Democratic House candidate in Florida's 13th Congressional District, said "where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?"

During a heated debate against Republican candidate David Jolly, Sink made her call for immigration reform.

"We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers, and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean out hotel rooms or do our landscaping?"

I love it when they f**k up and tell the truth.

Good news for shareholders! McCrory is still in Duke's money pockets!

I wonder how much money they'll give him when he retires from office?

"Duke: Coal ash spill won't affect bottom line

CHARLOTTE, N.C.— Duke Energy told shareholders Thursday that cleanup costs resulting from its massive coal ash spill into the Dan River won't have a material effect on the $50 billion company's bottom line.

The nation's largest electric company said in a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it had spent $15 million so far on plugging the collapsed pipe at its Eden power plant that triggered a Feb. 2 spill and polluted 70 miles of the Dan River with toxic sludge. The company has also begun the process of trying to dredge some of the spilled ash from the river.

Duke said it can't yet assess what costs may result from new laws affecting how the company handles the ash at its 33 coal ash dumps in North Carolina, or from future legal claims, litigation or environmental fines.

Duke's statement to investors came a day after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory unveiled a proposal he touted as strengthening government oversight of the state's coal ash dumps. But the governor's plan didn't address the key issue of what will happen to Duke's ash pits.

McCrory said his plan would result in the "conversion or closure" of the dumps and close legal loopholes that allowed the nation's largest electricity company to avoid cleaning up groundwater contamination leaching from unlined ash pits at 14 coal-fired power plants across the state.

All of Duke's ash pits are along the state's rivers and lakes — and the governor's plan doesn't force the company to move them.

"Gov. Scott Walker declines to commit to four-year Wisconsin term
He also hints at longer time to reach jobs goal
By Patrick Marley of the Journal Sentinel
April 16, 2014

Madison — A day after he formally announced his re-election bid, Gov. Scott Walker declined to say Wednesday whether he would serve a full four-year term if re-elected.

In comments to reporters in Madison and Milwaukee, Walker also tested the idea that he may have until the end of 2015 — rather than the beginning of that year — to meet his 2010 pledge to have the state add 250,000 jobs.

After more than three years in office, he has yet to reach the halfway point of that promise. He said he still aimed to meet it — though when wasn't clear.

The Republican governor is frequently mentioned as a potential candidate for president in 2016. If Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch were re-elected this Nov. 4 but Walker stepped down midterm, the job would go to Kleefisch until January 2019.

Asked Wednesday after speaking to the Wisconsin Hospital Association in Madison if he would commit to serving a full second term, Walker dodged the question.

"I'm committed to run for governor again," he said. "I love being governor and I'm committed to being governor going forward."

lol! Wow. So this 'donation' garnered a 'clearing' for Christie and ~$1M in fees from the people of New Jersey for a whilte washed report!

Reich wngers really know how to slither their way around!

Law firm that exonerated Chris Christie donated to Christie-led group

The law firm that cleared Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., of wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to the political group heleads, nine days before the firm's internal review of the scandal was released.

The firm, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, was hired by Christie to investigate and determine whether the governor had any involvement in planning or executing the lane closures that appear to have been ordered by his staff. Ultimately, the review concluded that the governor "had no knowledge beforehand."

On March 18, the firm donated $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association (RGA), a group that Christie chairs and done extensive fundraising for,the Bergen Record reported Wednesday.

The newspaper notes that the California office of the law firm is a regular contributor to the group and that a partner sits on an RGA leadership committee. They did not donate to the Democratic Governors Association in 2012, 2013 or 2014....."

So what happens this June if we find out the Iranians didn't do what they were told and managed to build a nuclear missile by then?
All they needed was enough time to dupe Obama and the UK without any sanctions making it more difficult. What if they were given that amount of time on a silver platter?
China and Russia could care less.
We'll find out this June if they've been good little Iranians or how far along they've come. Hope it won't be too late by then.
We desperately need a President and not a Community Organizer. He is laughed at by our enemies, despised by our friends and ignored by the intelligent.

I was watching TV earlier today when the networks interrupted regular programming for a special announcement from the Magic Negro. He began talking about the loss of lives in that South Korean ferry disaster and I thought this was proper for our President. But then suddenly he began launching into a long bullshit spiel about how Obamacare is an American success story! Where in the hell did this come from?

The Fifth Column has doubled down in its efforts to repair the disastrous image of this Presidency. Charlie Rose is once again singing the praises of the Marxist-In-Chief. Did you happen to catch Fallon tonight? I told you.....the First Cow came on again and began talking cheap street talk like some sailor's best friend.

To unsuspecting suckers, the Liberal Media is their friend. To the intelligent and street-wise, it is a dark evil of over-arching storm clouds.
