The Devil is in the details. In general I could agree with Ogabe’s plan tonight, BUT the criminal background check he mentioned obviously must have holes you could take a herd of elephants through. DWIs are somewhat common and many negligent homicides are concurrent, tax evasion is a felony and again common border jumping or visa overstaying is also criminal illegalities. So how is that going to be handled? Will we go back to requiring TOEFL? What about welfare and tax fraud? If we require payment of back taxes will they even come forward? In general I would be able to support five year residents a path to citizenship, if they have clean criminal records (no arrests other than citizenship ones or very minor civil infractions, welfare or voter fraud & DWI are dealbreakers), agree to a full tax audit and set up a payment plan just as citizens do and pass TOEFL (hell, I’ll even teach a few courses) within six months,

The problem is are we going to punish those who are waiting for a legal chance, while ignoring the criminal actions of those that didn’t even apply to come legally? What about the Hb1 visas for skilled immigrants? I find it hilarious that we have to look for computer science majors overseas because our miseducation system cannot produce enough because our elementary and secondary education systems have been taken over by members of the National Socialist American Unionist Party who discourage excellence because they don’t understand or recognize behavior that doesn’t replicate their myrmidon tendencies.

Authorities destroy cameras to prevent account of raid…

When critics warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we\’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens.

RAID FILMED: Ankeny Police ‘Traumatize’ Family in IowaANKENY,

IOWA WHOTV: New information regarding the story reported Monday night regarding a search warrant that was executed at a Des Moines home, looking for about $1000 worth of items purchased with a stolen credit card. Ankeny police spokeswoman Captain Makai Echer says officers consider several factors when deciding whether to send officers similar to a SWAT team to a house to serve a warrant, or simply knock on the door.In this case, Echer says, officers looked at suspect’s criminal histories and whether there could be firearms in the home. Of the three suspects that were present in the home, one has a violent arrest record for two assaults about 13-years ago and a domestic assault.Another suspect did have a permit to carry a weapon. Echer would not comment on whether that played a role in the decision. She would also not comment on whether it was appropriate for a police officer to rip a security camera from the front of the house after officers had already entered.

There is a need to muzzle the public sector unions. They take a share of the taxpayer funds allocated to pay for public services, and then use a large part of those funds to elect the people they are supposed to “bargain with” in order o receive more of the taxpayers money. The best solution would be a federal “right to work” law that would make joining and paying dues to a union totally optional with none of that “agency fee” nonsense. Or for that matter stringent by the NRLB of the “Beck rights” found in the landmark decision Communication Workers v. Beck. Of course Obummer has appointed a guy to head the NLRB that doesn’t even believe. in the right to secret ballot, he wants his gooion friends thugs to know who voted against them. For “appropriate” reeducation no doubt.

There was a time when public service was considered a noble but lower paid calling. While benefits in the public sector were always good, public servants historically could expect to trade some level of wages in exchange for job stability. No more. Today, public sector union workers earn more than their private sector counterparts, they have far more job stability, and their benefits and pensions far outshine the average in the private sector. Looking specifically at Wisconsin, for instance, the “average Milwaukee Public School teacher will be receiving $100,005 in compensation this year – $56,500 of that is in salary, and a whopping $43,505 is in benefits.” Note that a teacher’s salary only covers a little over 9 months of employment. When adjusted for that, “teachers are among some of the most highly compensated employees in the state.” And as far as quality for the tax payer dollars spent, it is notable that, according to Juan Williams on Fox News Sunday today, the reading test scores for black children in Milwaukee are the lowest in the country.

My favorite line of the “I have a dream” speech was and is:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

I often wonder what he would think about the way it has turned out so far

Some facts (ofttimes forgotten) to remember today (FYI, I am not a Republican, I am a Libertarian):
.
– The Republican Party – the party of Abraham Lincoln – was borne in 1854 out of opposition to slavery.

– The party of Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan was, as Jeffrey Lord points out in an article at the WSJ, the Democratic Party. And Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) [was until his recent passing] the only living member of the Senate who was once a member of the KKK.

– The 13th (abolishing slavery), 14th (due process for all citizens) and 15th (voting rights cannot be restriced on the basis of race) Amendments to the Constitution were enacted by Republicans over Democratic opposition.

– The NAACP was founded in 1909 by three white Republicans who opposed the racist practices of the Democratic Party and the lynching of blacks by Democrats.

– In fairness, it was the Democrat Harry Truman who, by Executive Order 9981 issued in 1948, desegregated the military. That was a truly major development. My own belief is that the military has been the single greatest driving force of integration in this land for over half a century.

– It was Chief Justice Earl Warren, a former Republican Governor of California appointed to the Supreme Court by President Eisenhower, also a Republican, who managed to convince the other eight justices to agree to a unanimous decision in the seminal case of Brown v. Board of Education. That case was brought by the NAACP. The Court held segregation in schools unconstitutional. The fact that it was a unanimous decision that overturned precedent made it clear that no aspect of segregation would henceforth be considered constitutional.

– Republican President Ike Eisenhower played additional important roles in furthering equality in America. He “proposed to Congress the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960 and signed those acts into law. . . . They constituted the first significant civil rights acts since the 1870s.” Moreover, when the Democratic Governor of Arkansas refused to integrate schools in what became known as the “Little Rock Nine” incident, “Eisenhower placed the Arkansas National Guard under Federal control and sent Army troops to escort nine black students into an all-white public school.”

– In 1957, REPUBLICAN President Eisenhower authored a Civil Rights Bill, hoping to repair the damage done to blacks and their civil rights by Democrats for nearly a century. Passage of the bill was blocked by Senate Democrats. Lyndon Baines Johnson was the leader of the Democrats in the Senate.

– In 1959, Eisenhower authored a Voting Rights Bill, again, in an effort to undo the disenfranchisement of blacks by Democrats through poll taxes, literacy tests, and threats of violence by the KKK. And once again, passage of the bill is blocked by Senate Democrats. Lyndon Baines Johnson was the leader of the Democrats in the Senate.

– The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was championed by JFK – but it was passed with massive Republican support (over 80%) in Congress and over fierce opposition from Democrats who made repeated attempts at filibuster. Indeed, 80% of the vote opposing the Civil Rights Act came from Democrats. Women were added to the Act as a protected class by a Democrat who thought it would be a poison pill, killing the legislation. To the contrary, the Congress passed the Act without any attempt to remove the provision.

– Martin Luther King Jr. was the most well known and pivotal Civil Rights activist ever produced in America. His most famous speech, “I Had A Dream,” was an eloquent and stirring call for equality. It is below. I would highly recommend listening to it. Rev. King was, by the way, a Republican.

“Bull” Connor was not a Republican. . . .

 

An inherited anticolonialist rage against domination by Western civilization, stemming from the beliefs of Obama’s father is what drives the President. D’Souza lays it all out in his book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” which you can get for free when you order Townhall Magazine. In this mind-blowing book D’Souza explains why Obama’s economic policies are designed to intentionally make America poorer, why he welcomes a nuclear Iran, why he sees the United States as a rogue nation, and much more.

For a example of D’Sousa’s premise read “Obama’s Problem With Business” here.
