Apr 2, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WLS-AM Chicago

Republican leaders have repeatedly warned party members against harsh immigration rhetoric following a dismal showing with Latino voters in November, but the message doesn't seem to have resonated with some in the GOP.

Native Legislator Ponka-We Victors Turns Tables at Immigration Hearing in Kansas
ICTMN Staff
March 22, 2013
A remark about immigration made by a Native State Representative at a hearing in the Kansas House of Representatives has attracted the attention of major media -- and yet to many Natives, it's merely the plainest of facts.
The hearing concerned the legality of offering children of illegal immigrants to pay the in-state tuition rate to attend universities and community colleges in Kansas. The Legislature was seeking to overturn a statute that has been on the books for nearly a decade -- a Topeka Capital-Journal story described the effort as an annual attempt."
Ponka-We Victors (D-Wichita), a member of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma and the Tohono O'odham Nation, and the only American Indian in the Kansas State Legislature, offered her reading of the situation to Kris Kobach, Kansas' Secretary of State.
"I think it’s funny Mr. Kobach, because when you mention illegal immigrant, I think of all of you," Victors said, prompting cheers from the gallery, described by the Capital-Journal as "heavily pro-immigrant." Rep. Arlen Siegfreid (R-Olathe) the chairman of the House Federal and State Affairs Committee, felt moved to tell the room, "Please don't do that."
The encounter takes on added significance when one considers the man Victors was addressing. Kris Kobach is known around the country as an anti-immigration hawk, and had a hand in such controversial measures as Arizona's SB 1070. As Mother Jones puts it, "if there's a controversial new anti-immigration law that's captured national attention, chances are that it has Kris Kobach's imprimatur."

"the plainest of facts." Indeed.
So what's your point?

Being a worm comes naturally, it's not something one can teach to another. We can try to teach one how not to be a worm, but the key word there is try. The major misunderstanding on these threads is the divide. Our side is not into defeat regardless of the fight. The other side turns our God-given rights on their head to support their selfish and perverted ideas, that have never worked, for an unattainable utopia. Wishing and dreaming....I dont give a shyt anymore. Anyone who, with intent, demonstates the destruction of the Constitution or our capitalist society, which has worked for 200+ years, is a traitor, tory, communist, or other, and needs to be taken out back and........

"May 29, 2012

First lady Michelle Obama told a cozy group of 400 campaign supporters in Iowa last month that the 2012 Presidential Election could come down to only a “few thousand folks.”

“I just want you to remember that in the end, this all could come down to those last few thousand people that we register to vote. It could all come down to those few thousand folks we need to help to get to the polls in November,” the first lady said.

Florida election officials were denied help by the feds to confirm citizenship status (and voter fraud) for an estimated 180,000 illegal immigrants already registered to vote in Florida.

That’s 180,000 votes in just one SWING state in an election that is going to boil down to, as Mrs. Obama said, a “few thousand votes.”

According to state records, Florida election officials have determined that massive voter fraud is taking place and that as many as 180,000 non-residents are registered to vote in the sunshine state, and it only came to the attention of state election officials early last year when the state’s DMV turned over a large data-set containing the population’s residency information. Upon sampling the data and running some preliminary checks, officials narrowed their estimate of illegally registered voters to 180,000."

April 4th 2013. You are totally full of shit. There are no 180,000 illegal voters in Florida. And by the way teabag hypocrite, Governor Scott says we don't take no stinkin' help or money from the Feds. But he's full of shit like you, because now, he wants money from the Feds.
