Ethics question

Fort Davis, TX

"The public has the right to expect their elected officials to conduct themselves according to the highest ethical standards.(Willie) Gandara violated the public's trust on many levels and he is facing severe consequences as a result," U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said in a news release.

Is lobbying to appease and condone criminal behavior living to the highest ethical standards?

The circus continues!

Local Quacks, Ethics Questions and Big Money have failed again to read. This is about the efforts to correct an immigration policy that has been defective since George Bush 43 took office. He failed to make an effort to straighten things out and so did President Obama when he came into office. The master plan failed in 2009 and is going to be very contentious.

The problem is all the children brought into the United States by their parents who failed to even attempt to register and file for application for citizenship or even learn English. These children have been raised here in our schools and no nothing about Mexico except for the drug wars. Their level of living is way above any other in their own country except for the wealthy and the drug cartel members. Should they get a break? Maybe. Should their parents get a break? No! Everyone of those parents need to be forced to the back of the line, pay their fines and penalties and work their way into the legal progression of naturalization as those who started legally.
1- every person entering into the path of Citizenship should be required not only to learn English but be proficient verbally and have an ability to write English.
2- Every person should be required is physically possible to aid the United States either by joining the military or doing public service for a two year period.
3- every person should be required once the attain citizenship, to register to vote and be required to vote.

I just love how you pontificate about these issues as if you actually knew something and had a good idea! Way to go - you certainly have a lot of people fooled but don't worry, I won't give give you up.

Question how did you get to be soooo smart and know everything. If you feel you are not smart enough to answer the question that will be fine also.

Have you ever heard of the Constitution? You want to just throw that away in favor of your laws? Do you know better than the founders? Are you a left-wing commie? You have one hell of a nerve trying to impose all these ideas on others.

That way we in Texas could have a fully democratic state where the republicans and democrats would have one senate seat each. The number of Hispanic here in Texas who have the right to vote are failing their own people. They have lived here for years after obtaining citizenship and still refuse to exercise their voting rights. They are cowards to their cultures and fears.

That's all well and good but it doesn't mean that you can legislate for people to do their civic duty.

Well you really can according to the supreme court. With Obama's Affordable Health care act, If you fail to obtain health insurance you can be fined and it will be taken out of you tax return (that would mean if you had a job to have it taken out of in the first place.)So why not make it a law in the state of Texas that if you are of age to register and are not a felon or mentally defective you would have to go vote. Otherwise you would be subjected to another freedom choice of being selected to jury duty every three months. Just think, those who vote get off jury duty.
