I don' entirely disagree but you forgot to invite me for a ride in your fantasy land on a pink unicorn :-)<quoted text>
Hate? No, but wasting the sacrifice that is the taxes we pay is spitting in the face of hardworking Americans.
We spend more $ per capita than any other country on the planet, tax payer money is being wasted through fraud, abuse and corruption with the current public school system. education of children would be delegated to localities, without Federal mandates. Every child in America would receive vouchers for grade school, high school and college. They could choose any school to attend – public or private. If the private school cost more than the voucher, the family would pay the difference. Excellent schools would flourish, poor schools would be forced to improve or they would close. Teacher tenure would be eliminated. Teaching excellence would be rewarded.
The taxes collected from gas sales doesn't go to the roads. It goes into the general fund, and then some of those taxes are used for roads and infrastructure. IF it was used for the roads and bridges, we wouldn't have our bridges falling a part and our roads in such disrepair. More waste and "special" projects that pay back political investors are were our gas taxes are going.
Hunting and fishing licenses are the majority of funding source of fish and wildlife dept, those who use the outdoors, are paying for it. It's when tax payer money is used for free cell phones for the "poor", or million dollar "conference trips" to Vegas that we get a bit upset.
Illegal labor keeps WAGES low-not just in agriculture, but through out the unskilled/blue collar market. Why do you think hotel custodians in L.A no longer make 40k plus benefits a year any more?
Besides, the "cheap" illegal labor reflected in the cost of a $3 head of lettuce is also reflected in the $150 asprin pill at your local hospital thanks to the strain of illegals on our health care system.
It's not hate, it's asking everyone to actually play by the same rules and follow the same laws. But you are right, illegals are costing us more than whatever smaller benefits they may bring. The nonpartisan National Research Council found that an illegal immigrant without a high-school degree will impose a net cost on taxpayers of $89,000 over his or her lifetime. Roughly 115 Billion is what it costs us each and every year.
I'd go through the rest of your tripe, but, steaks are on the grill and it's time to kick back and relax after a hard day at work.

Ten Reasons to Dislike Romney ...
After much research, we have come up with a Top Ten list to explain the unlikablility of Romney.
Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney
1. Successful, self-made businessman.(Dad didn't give him a hand-out; he and Ann had to make it on their own)
2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life and has been FAITHFUL to her.
3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet.(How boring is that?)
4. Can't speak in a fake southern black preacher voice when necessary.
5. Puts his dog on the car as opposed to eating dogs.(As Obama did in Indonesia). Reference; http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/artic...
6. Has pots of money (made it all himself) and since nobody else in this country has any desire to have pots of money...we don't like him!
7. Has a family of great boys...none of them are in drug rehab.
8. Doesn't smoke (even in secret), drink alcohol, or do drugs (not even in college, where other people were NOT inhaling)
9. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!
(We can't relate to such an anachronism)
10. Oh yes...he's a MORMON. That horrible religion that teaches it's members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, honest, upright and MORAL!
And one more point...pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that's because he made that money ALL
BY HIMSELF...as opposed to marrying it (as in John
Kerry) or inheriting it from Dad (as in Jack, Robert & Ted Kennedy.)
We didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans. Strange.
I want to add a couple more small points that probably are not appreciated by most people.
His life history is out there and easily
accessed for everyone to read. He has NOT spent millions to hide his past and close his files.
There are many who know him from his past and can
readily respond to his history. His Social Security Card and other identification papers are easily accessed and authenticated. You can find
people who have been his life long friends and not one of them belongs to a Socialist or Communist party. All this is in stark contrast to what we now have in the White House and yet, the left would have you believe we have nothing in common with Mitt Romney?

"Sometimes when faced with problems that are confusing and troubling it is easier to think what someone tells you to think, particularly something that touches a deep and dark nerve in your nature, rather than carry the burden and ambiguity of struggling with the facts and thinking for yourself. Repeating a party line is a shorthand way of avoiding real thought. And the predators are always there to take advantage of it. They welcome trouble and often foment crisis in order to advance their agendas."
"Anyone can be misled by a clever person, and no one likes to readily admit that they have been had. It is a sign of character and maturity to realize this, and admit you were deceived, and to demand change and reform. But some people cannot do this, even when the facts of the deception are revealed. It seems as though the more incorrect that the truth shows them to be, the louder and more strident they become in shouting down and denying the reality of the situation."
and you've just busted out the atomic bomb of counterpoints with your "pink unicorn". Hope that works out well for ya

Obama and the democrats record...distort, distract and disappoint. Their bible is the Cloward and Piven Strategy. Nancy Pelosi is the Queen "B". America is fed up with these crooks. Fooled us once shame on us and we will not give them a second chance.

The Obama administration: Imploding in private?
Exclusive: Erik Rush lists BHO's liabilities even media can no longer ignore
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Romney's Mormon ancestors flee to Mexico to avoid anti polygamy laws imposed on them in 1892. Pro Vietnam War, he flees to France as a Mormon missionary to avoid military service in 1968. Mitt makes millions of dollars by exporting American jobs to China and other low wage countries. He parks his wealth in oversea banks to avoid taxes. People are told he's a patriot who should be elected President – problem is, who is gonna vote for him – the Chinese?
#42863 Jun 27, 2012
We don't give a damn Obama must go nothing but pure failure .
#42865 Jun 27, 2012
Yes, the Chinese! They know how to appreciate a job creator.
President Obama has destroyed America without having the liquidity of even one offshore account. Is that who we want destroying America? Vote Republican.
#42866 Jun 27, 2012
Ann and I knew we could count on our buds in Pikeville to see right through Obama’s failures, that they are so pure, so obvious, to make it unnecessary to document. We must defeat Obama at any cost before he fails to destroy America even more. Vote GOP.

Regarding the Supreme Court's recent ruling on Arizona's SB1070...
"Attorney General Eric Holder said he remains concerned that Arizona police will engage in racial profiling while enforcing section 2B of SB 1070. Section 2B requires police to verify the immigration status of any person lawfully stopped on suspicion of illegal activity, OTHER THAN being in the country illegally:"
Excuse me, but isn't being in the country illegally an "illegal activity?"
In other words, you are welcome to come here illegally - bump it's citizens out of jobs, engage yourself in free gratis welfare amenities paid for by working citizens' tax dollars, just don't commit any crimes or break the law ( and we will wave your illegal entry)- and all will be well.
Come one, come all! Obama needs the voter base.

Obama: The Affirmative Action President
by Matt Patterson
(columnist - Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as
an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria
akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder,
did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into
thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's
most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?
Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered
into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores
along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer"; a brief career
as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly
devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present") ; and finally an
unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of
which was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left no academic legacy
in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator.
And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the
white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's
"spiritual mentor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's
colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian
looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected
Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz
addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal:
To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken
hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like
Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was
black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberaldom to have hung out
with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a
bit extreme, he was given a pass.
Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass -- held to a lower standard --
because of the color of his skin. Podhoretz continues:
And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so
articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all
of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and
thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?
Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama
phenomenon -- affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But
certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws
and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and
especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

(from the Washington Post, cont'd:)
Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on
the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are
not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor
performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don't care if
these minority students fail; liberals aren't around to witness the
emotional devastation and deflated self esteem resulting from the racist
policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist.
Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his
skin -- that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism,
then nothing is. And that is what America did to Obama.
True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why
would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for
Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was
good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was
told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the
Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good
enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary. What
could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time
In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications
nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool
character. Those people -- conservatives included -- ought now to be deeply
embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichÃ©s, and
that's when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is
absent he can barely think or speak at all.***Not one original idea has
ever issued from his mouth -- it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that
has failed over and over again for 100 years.*
And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and
everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited
this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise
his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But
really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for
anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?
In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the
temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.

The Congressional Black Caucus has called a members-only "emergency" meeting on Thursday to plot a "walkout strategy" ahead of the scheduled contempt vote of Attorney General Eric Holder later in the day.
The plans, detailed in an email from the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus obtained by the Alley, include circulating a letter disapproving of the vote and having lawmakers walk out of the Capitol to hold a press conference during the roll call.
The letter, a draft of which is being circulated for signatures, accuses the GOP leadership of "rushing recklessly to a contempt vote." The letter is being circulated among the Black, Hispanic, Asian and Progressive caucuses, among other.
Typical DimocRATS that refuse to see the truth. It is amazing that whites will join Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Muslims to destroy America and our freedoms.
Fast and furious was designed to strip America of its second amendment rights.
CBS has copies of emails written by gun sellers. Read them here. One said he wanted to make sure he and others were not viewed as the “bad guys” for doing as directed by the government.
An email responding to the above by a BATF supervisor assures the gun dealer there is nothing to worry about as the agency is continually monitoring the weapons.
The concerned gun seller didn’t stop there. He emailed again saying he needed to know that none of the weapons sold by him end up “south of the border or in the hands of bad guys.”
Demand Letter 3 was announced in April 2011. The National Shooting Sports Foundation is suing the ATF to stop it.
BATF often did not trace the weapons once they arrived in Mexico, and thousands of them remain at-large today. No doubt the sole goal of this lawless administration was to impose harsher gun laws and limit Second Amendment rights. Read more at Investor’s Business Daily.

CONFRONTING IRAN,“PROTECTING ISRAEL”: The Real Reason for America’s War on Syria
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is calling for an R2P humanitarian military intervention in Syria to curb the atrocities allegedly ordered by the government of president Bashar Al Assad. In a twisted logic, Clinton recognizes that while “opposition forces” are integrated by Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists, the government rather than the terrorists is held responsible, without a shred of evidence, for the ongoingmassacre of civilians.
Amply documented, these sectarian killings and atrocities are being committed by foreign mercenaries and militia which are armed and supported by the Western military alliance.
The killings are carried out quite deliberately as part of a diabolical covert operation. The enemy is then blamed for the resulting atrocities. The objective is to justify a military agenda on humanitarian grounds.
In US military jargon, it’s called a “massive casualty producing event”, the historical origins of which go back to “Operation Northwoods”, an infamous 1962 Pentagon Plan, consisting in killing civilians in the Miami Cuban community, with a view to justifying a war on Cuba.(See Michel Chossudovsky, SYRIA: Killing Innocent Civilians as part of a US Covert Op. Mobilizing Public Support for a R2P War against Syria, Global Research, May 30, 2012)
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship,and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.
The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba’s then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.”(U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba – ABC News emphasis added. This Secret Pentagon document was declassified and can be readily consulted, See Operation Northwoods, See also National Security Archive, 30 April 2001)
The objective of this sinister plan --which Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and President J. F. Kennedy-- refused to carry out, was to drum up public support for a war against Cuba:
