Will the illegals pay taxes during five years before they amnesty or will they enjoy food stamps and freebees paid by the 47 % working Americans? Clearly, the 8-gangster senators committee is pushing America to anarchy and chaos and allowing the flood of forty million terrorists from the Middle East and drug dealers from South America to cross the border at any time after their 'deal' and get the food stamps from Obama in return for their vote to defeat the GOP and remove Boehner from the House Speaker position. Every American know that the flood of illegal invaders from the Middle East, South America and Asia aimed at getting free checks from Obama and has nothing to do with US citizenship that nobody care for because it involves paying taxes that the invaders despise. Will the RINOs John McCain and Lindsey Graham sell America to forty million illegal invaders that will cross the border in the near future to get free Obama phone, Obama check and Obama care in return for voting for the liberal Democrats?

Democrats & Republicans working together!

A Democratic New York state senator was arrested Tuesday, along with his supposed conspirators, after allegedly paying Republicans to run on their side of the ticket for the November New York City mayoral election. Reuters reports the move comes after a years-long investigation into the scandal, brought on by a wide-open mayoral race due to current Mayor Michael Bloomberg's retirement from the office due to term limits. The numbers belie a wide-ranging bribery plot to fill the top seat in city hall.

6: The number of men charged with various misdeeds. State Sen. Malcolm Smith, the lone Democrat, supposedly paid various Republican officials to be let on the ballot.

Republicans charged are City Councilman Daniel Halloran, Queens County Republican Party Vice Chairman Vincent Tabone, Spring Valley Mayor Noramie Jasmin, Spring Valley Deputy Mayor Joseph Desmaret and Bronx County Republican Party Chairman Joseph Savino.

What Are the Challenges of Walking in Two Worlds?
Sonny Skyhawk
April 27, 2012

It is the realization that, at one time, this was only one world, and that it belonged to our people. That having been said, today we find ourselves in a complicated position. The full cost of mainstream assimilation for the American Indian has yet to be determined. Today, five hundred years later, we are still in the process of assessing what has been lost.

Collectively, we have paid a very dear price. Ours has been a culture that has relied on the oral transmission of our history and values. Our languages and have suffered tremendously, and therefore our cultures have suffered tremendously, and we find ourselves struggling to hold on to as much of both of them as possible. Obviously, we have lost almost all of our lands—what is less obvious is the lingering cost of the occupation and holocaust we have experienced remain to this very day. These haunt us in a more subtle, even subliminal, way.

Yet we have evolved and are dealing with the hand we have been dealt, so to speak. We are and remain a viable, vibrant and proud people, with the same dreams and aspirations as anyone else. Today, having retained our values and beliefs, we are doctors, lawyers and every other profession that is found in mainstream society, and we are moving ahead in many constructive ways.

We are distinctly unique from other ethnicities, simply because we are the original land holders, and because of lands ceded to the present government through sovereign recognized treaties. We are proud Americans, and have shed our blood to prove and defend this land. We continue to walk in both worlds with pride, determination and hope—hope that our future generations appreciate the price that has been paid and value what has been achieved. It has been a difficult path, no doubt, but one that we walk with the belief that we can co-exist. I truly believe that our ancestors would be proud of our ability to sustain ourselves through the challenges of change we have had to undergo in the last five hundred years

This is not shocking. Our voters are insane. They voted Barry into office, not once, but two times. The definition of insanity is when you keep doing the same stupid thing over and over again.
We need to be in therapy to try to stop the insanity.

I'm starting a new party called T.A.B.

"TAKE AMERICA BACK."

Let's use it as our Battle Cry.
Mayela

We’ve all heard the rhetoric.“We need to take America back for God!”

Why? Supposedly so we can regain some bygone level of ethics or moral standards. Supposedly, if we don’t, God will get tired of us “rebuking” God and remove God’s hand of protection from us. Supposedly so God won’t test us or judge us or something.

Yet, as Gregory A. Boyd notes in his important book The Myth of a Christian Nation: How the Quest for Political Power Is Destroying the Church, taking America BACK for God assumes we, at one time, really belonged to God, followed God, listened to God. Boyd goes on to ask, when was this glorious age in the history of the USA?

Let’s start way back. We’ve been taught that many people migrated to North America for religious freedom. So was this glorious time when some of our forebears imprisoned, tormented, and / or hanged many suspected to be witches? Is that what so many want to take us back to?

Many of our European forebears believed that God (or nature) had sanctioned “manifest destiny” for white Christians to conquer North America. So, was this special time when white aliens made and broke treaties with the Native Americans and forced them out of their homelands? Is that what so many want to take us back to?

One of the things that helped the southern states of the USA to thrive economically early on was the inexpensive labor provided by African slaves who were seen as 3/5 of a human. So, was our land glorifying God when it continued to allow and support the slave trade and the ownership of slaves? Or, was this golden age when our nation decided to take up arms against itself in the Civil War? Is that what so many want to take us back to?

Maybe the golden years were when Jim Crow laws were enforced and “separate but equal” facilities were seen as okay. Maybe it was when so many worked hard to suppress the vote of African Americans. Is that what so many want to take us back to?

Speaking of voting, for the first 144 years of our nation, women were apparently not seen as being “created equal” with “all men.” Apparently, they, prior to 1920, had not been “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” like voting. Even today, women tend to make less than men in comparable jobs. Is that what so many want to take us back to?

Was this age that many want to take us back to before there were child labor laws? Was it before workers’ compensation protected people? Was it before laws were enacted to limit the amount of hours that companies can force people to work?(I mean, who really wants to give up their weekend?)

It seems that many who want to take us back to whatever complain that politicians don’t use the words “God” or “Jesus” or “Christian” or whatever.“People are just trying to take God out of everything,” I hear again and again.

Some of these same people say that not only do we have to get back to God, we have to get back to the Constitution – and don’t you dare add anything to or take away from that near-divine document (at least in the minds of some). Some go on to say,“The phrase ‘separation of church and state’ is nowhere to be found, so don’t try to add it.”

That's a good idea. Their property should be confiscated and used to defer expenses. They aren't citizens, they shouldn't be treated like citizens.

I agree, his children can decide where they want to live but Joe broke the law. At least there's property to confiscate, to offset court, prison and transportation costs.

Why not keep your assets, dignity and self deport?

You should prove that you paid all taxes during at least the recent five years, you should prove that you do not need the Obama check, free Obama care or free food stamps for at least 10 years, you should pay fine of $5000 and will not be allowed to vote Obama during the next 10 years and after you prove that you paid all the taxes during the next 10 years. Now you can go to the back of the line for those who file for Green Card from their own country. Deal? How many illegal invaders will agree to that because they want to become US citizen and pay taxes, health care bill and student loan? Most Hispanic illegals want free Obama check for life and illegal voting Obama in return for that.
