Get over it GOP, even without this bill white folks are going to be in the minority so catering to the racists isn't going to work anymore.

I like the comments about how it would wipe out the Republican Party. Republicans, allowing immigrants into the country isn't going to wipe out the Republican Party. The Republican Party shiatting on everyone but the most conservative of white people is going to wipe out the Republican Party.

You sound fortysevenpercenty.

But seriously, I remember when the Republicans used to at least pretend they gave a crap about the average American.  That their economic policies might look like they just benefit the rich, but just you wait, and you'll feel that trickle any minute.  Now they engage in outright obstructionism and corporate cronyism, and the fearful old whites still lap that shiat up.  Because socialized medicine will destroy America!  Just like their Medicare has.

WARNING!

Anyway, I love how some of the derpy quotes try to blame Obama for the very existence of the immigration bill. Funny I do not recall him saying much of anything about immigration during the campaign. Can't seem to find anything about him actually submitting a bill or requesting that congress take on immigration either.

3) If Republicans are opposed to what mass immigration is doing to the country demographically, ethnically, socially and politically, there are, as Reagan used to say, "simple answers, just no easy answers."

Those answers: No amnesty,



So, you point to the man that signed the original amnesty bill, then turn around and say how horrible amnesty will be.

That's just farking awesome. Watching the GOP circle the drain is the most fun I've had in a long, long time.

Immigration reform was W's big idea.  It was a good idea too, but half his party lost their shiat just thinking about more brown people.  Too bad for them, because the GOP is now the anti-immigration party.

I know, one of Bush's biggest accomplishments was closing the Hispanic vote gap between the GOP and Democrats to a few percentage points but after the debacle that was the GOP's handling of Bush's immigration plan, the gap widened and Hispanics went back to the Democrats and never looked back.

There is an unspoken assumption that all illegals would want to stay in the US after earning the money they require. I have several Mexicans in my extended family. Some have become citizens, others just want to make enough cash to return home and live comfortably.

Lets see who has or had what passports on that list:

Michelle Bachmann - USA, Suisse
Ted Cruz -- Cuba, Canada, USA anchor baby
Michelle Malkin - Phillipines, USA anchor baby

So maybe we could just hand out US Passports to people at their homes in other countries or just wait til they hit the border and get one there that day. Bonus: they'd probably become right wing nuts who hate immigrants and find employment as a FOX stringer until the market floods.

2013-06-16 10:41:10 AM
Let's say for a moment that a few of these derptastic quotes are true, and to be taken literally -- and not as fearful old white hyperbole.

Let's say that it is absolutely 100% technically correct (the best kind of correct) that this immigration bill passes, and that it isn't exaggerated political hyperbole.

Let's say that the Republic party gets wiped out entirely. And let's say it's over for the GOP forever. <b>Forever!</b>

... shouldn't they just throw in the towel, then? I mean instead of setting themselves up for contradiction should it pass... shouldn't they just quit their public positions, and quit the GOP party? I mean it isn't logical for a human being to cling onto something dead (Batman doesn't count because he's a superhero, and Ronald Reagan doesn't count because he'd be shunned and outcast in today's GOP)... so why continue supporting the GOP and their batshiat crazy right wing obstructionism and agenda?

If these right wing talking heads are absolutely serious about the country's state of welfare... and that this isn't hyperbole... should they not just give up and leave once the bill passes and move on to another job? Since according to their quotes... this is it for the GOP.

Forever. There's no coming back on this one.

... or are they just going to be pants-shiatting chickenhawks like Ted Nugent who still has yet to be dead or in prison since Obama was elected for a 2nd term...

If it is hyperbole... should not people who are absolutely serious about wanting this country fixed dismiss them out of hand entirely, considering just how wrong they've been proven?

I mean what is it like being a part of the conservative part of the political spectrum knowing that you have been on the opposing side of every social justice issue since the Southern Strategy? What is it like knowing you support things which have time and time been proven again to be morally and ethically wrong?

.. except gun control. You've won that war.

It must be frustrating to be a Republican politician. These poor white folk have to please radio and tv entertainers. The sad truth is that the entertainers are saying inflammatory stuff to increase media revenues. They don't have to think about winning elections or representing ALL of their constituents. Politicians have a constituency which is assembled solely based upon where people live. Radio and tv personalities have a constituency made up solely of people who agree with them, wherever they may be found. Really, the only way for the Republicans to have success in elections is to stop taking policy advice from media entertainers.

Isn't it obvious? He's an immigrant from Kenya. The mere fact than a Kenyan immigrant can make it all the way into the presidency means that he's inspired TRILLIONS of other immigrants to come to the United States so they too can be Illegal Kenyan Presidents. But this time they want it to be legal, which is why the illegals are forcing this bill through congress!

That and the GOP was making great inroads with Hispanics when Bush was president until they started to push for stupid laws like making English the only language in the US and other laws that ostracized Hispanics.

They've done the same thing with Asians too. A socially and fiscally conservative group but all that bullcrap about Shariah law makes them feel unwelcomed so they vote Democrat.

If there is one thing the GOP is good at lately, it's failing to reach out to anyone who isn't a WASP.

The establishment GOP and their big business allies always backed immigration reform, if only for the simple reason that they wanted a ready supply of cheap labor to hold down employee costs.

o5iiawah: The 86 Amnesty bill did nothing for the GOP and this amorphous "Hispanic vote"


Correct, and the reason is simple: Hispanics that are here (as well as blacks and poor whites) want nothing to do with immigration reforms that bring more bottom-tier workers into the US. The newbies compete directly for jobs with existing legal residents and citizens.

Giving up would be a rational response, a response the post-9/11 Republican Party has shown itself completely incapable of providing.

What you're witnessing is how true tyranny forms and how atrocities are fomented. As the Republican party gets more and more desperate, it is entirely believable that they begin to take on more and more extremist anti-Latino viewpoints, and the more power they lose, the more vehement they will get. It's not going to be pretty.

2013-06-16 11:25:29 AM
You know, this could be done pretty easily, without all of this back and forth bickering:

1. Secure the borders(Yes, this actually matters, and isn't just a catchphrase, with leaky borders, and immigration plan is like tits on a fish)

2. Everyone that has been here 5+ years and can show it gets to stay(With their immediate families, no breaking up families, like sending just the kids back.). These are people who have a history here and have established a life, a place to live, a job, etc. Basically, they're already Americans, without the title.

3. Send everyone under 5 years back home, but get their names on the list for immigration so that they have an incentive to do it the legal way. Also, send home people with certain felonies on their records.

4. Streamline this immigration process so that people aren't waiting close to a decade just to start the legitimate citizenship process.

The simple fact is that we just can't send these millions of people home. There is no way to round up that many people short of a Nazi/Jew type situation. This would kill the economy. Produce would skyrocket(Just to name one thing). The money and manpower alone would bankrupt medium sized countries. Also, these people ARE doing jobs we spoiled Americans don't want. It's a fact, no matter what  Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, et al. tell you, and they're DEFINITELY not going to tek MORE jobs.

Hell, it's a better plan than Reagan's.

This is what I think is the critical piece and one of the biggest reasons people decide to risk their lives and jump over the fence instead of doing it the legal way.

If there is to be any reform done concerning immigration, the bold part has to be top priority, otherwise we're just going to have this issue again down the road.

I like it.  A bit lenient in the time frame than I would have considered, and I honestly hadn't taken into account the breakups of families.  Good catch.  I'll drop down from 7 to 5 years if you throw in passing a citizenship test being an absolute requirement for the adults on the "been here 5+ years" plan.  I wouldn't grouse at a citizenship test for citizens either.

I haven't listened to Glenn in a while, but I was listening when he said this.  The biggest thing I noticed about his show now is that it is at least 95% marketing his product, books or website or internet TV station.  Seriously, that's all he's really about now.  His job is to advertise his wares to the stupidest people in America, and he's pretty good at it.

FTA: Going back on their word, dishonoring their platform, and enraging their loyal supporters, who gave Mitt 90 percent of his votes, to pander to a segment of the electorate that gave Mitt less than 5 percent of his total votes.

Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. - Pat Buchanan

I am confused as fark. 90% loyal supporters + 5% other supporters + ???

Is the other 5% computer "error"?

You have to look at this logically and break down the pros and cons as seen by Republicans.

The Pros:
Immigration reform that is being proposed is the morally right thing to do.
It is the Christian thing to do. It is good for the American economy because it allows people to move out of the legal shadows and pay taxes on their earnings.
It removes the systematic disenfranchisement of a significant population in this country and encourages them to assimilate into the population (we are supposed to be a melting pot).

The Cons
Less than 50% of them would vote for Republicans.

Obviously we need to stop this legislation from passing. There may be many more pros that I missed but there is no possible way that they can outweigh the cons in the eyes of Republicans.
