U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the vocal proponent in Congress for a change in policy that would give undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as minors a chance to legalize their status, has cut off ties with two groups that have coordinated provocative protests in recent months.

Gutierrez, a Democrat from Illinois, on Monday evening issued a press release announcing that he was no longer going to work with the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) and their affiliated advocates at .

The congressman said the final straw in a series of actions by the groups that he has found unsettling was the secret recording by a NIYA representative of what was to have been a confidential discussion last week between Gutierrez and parents of immigrants who are being held in an immigrant detention center in El Paso, Tex.

"It just shows me how dangerous they are," Gutierrez said in an interview Tuesday with Fox News Latino. "How Nixonian...Why target the leading voices in the Senate and House for immigration reform?"

“That meeting was ... recorded surreptitiously by NIYA, without the knowledge of the parents, the Congressman or his staff,” Gutierrez said in a statement sent Monday night to the media.“It is unfortunate that the actions of the advocates in this case are preventing this office from being able to work with parents and family who are understandably and rightly concerned for the safety of their son or daughter.”

Ron Paul Basically Called for Armed Revolution This Week
"Jefferson obviously was a clear leader on the principle of nullification," the former Texas congressman said of the third president. "I’ve been working on the assumption that nullification is going to come. It’s going to be a de facto nullification. It’s ugly, but pretty soon things are going to get so bad that we’re just going to ignore the feds and live our own lives in our own states."
....He tore into the Constitution’s 17th Amendment. Ratified in 1913, it’s the one that allows for the direct election of U.S. senators by popular vote. "That undermined the principle importance of the states," said Paul.
He criticized the 16th Amendment, which allowed the federal income tax. After the crowd chanted "End the Fed," Paul decried the printing of more money by the Federal Reserve. "We need someone to stand up to the authoritarians," he said. "They’re dictators."
....He stressed that the constitutional "right to keep and bear arms" was not for hunting, but to allow rebellion against tyrannical governments. "The Second Amendment was not there so you could shoot rabbits," he said. "Right now today, we have a great threat to our liberties internally."
all true...

Obama's Climate Task Force Is a Treaty Trap

November 6, 2013

The usurper in Our White House has issued a new executive order (EO) that creates a global warming task force, The Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience, is a tool to implement Agenda 21, which is the blueprint for totalitarian control through the United Nations. The new task force utilizes corrupt science that comes directly from the the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that is the source of countless scandals. Obama's strategy is designed to bypass Congress (and We, the People) in order to lockdown land use and control water resources. And there are hidden UN and World Trade Organization treaties lurking in the background...

Well, I've spoken to multiple people today about this and the explanation from all of them is that in the Dolphins locker room, Richie Incognito was considered a black guy. He was accepted by the black players. He was an honorary black man."

The Kansas State women’s basketball team opens its regular season on Friday against Tennessee State and has an interesting promotion to entice fans.

According to the school’s official Twitter page, free bacon will be given to everyone in attendance, beginning an hour before tipoff. The school initially ordered 75 pounds of thick-cut bacon, it told ESPN’s Darren Rovell. But social media activity caused it to increase that amount to 300 pounds. The school told Rovell that each student will receive “a boat of bacon.”

Virginia's Blue Laws Still Prohibit Cohabitation, Oral Sex And Sex In A Car
Richmond Times-Dispatch | By A. Barton Hinkle
Posted: 02/03/2013 8:19 am EST | Updated: 02/03/2013 10:09 am EST
Only one or two centuries late, Virginia lawmakers have decided it is none of their business if unmarried couples share a roof. So the legislators are now working diligently to repeal the state's law against "lewd and lascivious cohabitation." Huzzahs all 'round for that.
But do not unclutch thy bodice yet. Virginia law is riddled with antiquated provisions meant to govern the "morals and decency" of the fair people of the commonwealth. And while the law against shacking up apparently never gets enforced, others do.
Just for starters: While it might soon be legal to live in sin, that doesn't mean you can, by gad sir, fornicate. Fornication remains forbidden under the Code of Virginia, Section 18.2-344. So keep your hands and whatnot to yourself. Especially the whatnots.
And don't even think of doing other stuff. Virginia's "crimes against Nature" statute -- Section 18.2-361 -- still prohibits oral sex. Even between married straight couples. Moreover, state lawmakers seem particularly opposed to that practice -- because in Virginia, it's a felony. Efforts to repeal that provision or even to reduce oral sex to a misdemeanor have failed repeatedly.
Also: Don't try to open a "bawdy place," which the code defines as any place "used for lewdness, assignation or prostitution." (Assignation?)
If you happen to be, say, a cab driver, you had better be careful whom you're driving where. Virginia law prohibits you to drive anybody to any place (bawdy or otherwise) if you think that person might be going for "illicit sexual intercourse."
But the law doesn't end there. If you happen to be a person who happens to know things -- such as, oh, the location of bawdy houses or other loci for the commission of illicit woo-hoo -- and you happen to impart such information to a fellow who is just passing through, then you are breaking the law. Virginia forbids divulging "any information or direction to any person with intent to enable such person to commit an act of prostitution."
Change the subject, you know what I said is true, just don't want to fess up to it, so you start another subject to get attention away from what I posted.

Why did PROGRESSIVES need to make PERFECTLY HEALTHY 20 somethings buy insurance?

"Five percent of the population accounts for almost half (49 percent) of total health care expenses...

Half of the population spends little or nothing on health care, while 5 percent of the population spends almost half of the total amount.

The elderly (age 65 and over) made up around 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2002, but they consumed 36 percent of total U.S. personal health care expenses"

Maybe Kevorkian was onto something...

If you have courage you can read this and then have you something to think about...

"Grandma having an incentive to spend irresponsibly is not a significant part of the problem. The problem is beggars, gypsies, liars, cheats, tramps and thieves. The problem is gimmiedats.

What makes healthcare expensive is the gimmiedats, not Grandma. And proof of this is that when, as in Singapore, you continue to indulge Grandma, but you don’t indulge gimmiedats, healthcare costs a lot less.

In Britain, the NHS murders your grandmother to save money, but gives the man who thinks he is a woman a free sex change. In Singapore, they will not murder your grandmother, and will not provide a free sex change. Which place is more successful at reducing health care expenses?

If health care costs are such a problem that we need to murder people, let us murder gypsies. Saves a lot more money than murdering grandmas"

and finally this:

"If we are going kill elderly people and eight month fetuses because they are expensive and inconvenient, I have a long list of people who are a lot more expensive and less convenient."

Progressives and tattooed sluts that preach...

"Progressives take over every institution. And, having taken them over, move them ever leftwards. A tattooed lesbian slut is lefter than thou, hence holier than thou.

Removing the sacrificial sacraments from ordination is one step on the road that ends up with the tattooed lesbian slut preacher … no it does not end up with the tattooed lesbian slut preacher, for she will in turn be out flanked by something even lefter."

States have always had say so over insurance companies babe, does the office of insurance regulation ring a bell? Hah, you might have gone to school with that guy too.
And didn't even know it.
What we have here is a lack of communication.

Whenever I use the word "state" these days, I'm talking about the power elite, the inner circle, etc. Not state as in the 50 states.

But your misunderstanding was understandable. My fault.

The power elite have decided what we will have in our insurance whether we need it or want it or not.

Do you want the elite few...the power elite...the inner circle...deciding what you MUST have and make that kind of decision for you?

Over 4 million people have lost their insurance - not because THEY didn't like their plan but because THIS ADMINISTRATION didn't like their plan.

How on God's green earth can you or anyone else be okay with that?

And that number is going to continue to grow.

I can't imagine any Republican administration deciding what all Americans MUST have whether they want or need it or not and Americans losing insurance they want because a Republican administration didn't want them to have it.

After even more instances of plagiarism have come out, Rand Paul finally admitted that his office made “mistakes.” Well you certainly didn’t make any mistakes in copying stuff—you usually seem to get everything word for word. The good news is that Rand Paul’s admissions about the plagiarizing don’t seem to have been copied from anyone else. There must have been a great temptation to just go back and use whatever Joe Biden said about plagiarism back in 1988. Paul said “This is coming from haters to begin with.” Haters? Rand, you’re thinking about running for president of the United States. Your public statements shouldn’t sound like a quote from Kanye West. Wait! Maybe what Rand Paul said there WAS a quote from Kanye West! Somebody do a search of everything that’s been said about “haters” by Kanye, Li’l Kim, and Miley Cyrus .
