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.

The oil production platform at the Sakhalin-I field in Russia,
Poor lefties try as they might, their excuses for US citizens to sublimate their lifestyle and Independence for the sake of hoaxes made up from whole cloth keeps running afoul of the truth and they wear themselves out trying to keep up playing Whack-a-Mole as actual inconvenient (to them) truths become obvious. Peak oil is still taught @ gummint (sic) indoctrination centers that get rich off gummint loans given to maleducated teenagers promising to expand their maleducation. I keep wanting to tour colleges and shout at the “Liberal Arts” majors, “It’s a cookbook!” (see here http://imdb.to/1xrNrzI)
Peak oil has been a hoax that has been around since the ’50s and was sold on the ridiculous claim taught to my generation that oil was pressed dinosaur. Well if you’ve paid any attention to anything resembling actual science (you know that actually talks about proof?), you will have noticed that the Russians have proven their abiotic theory of oil years ago, and that has led them to this: (Please read far enough to learn the estimated size of this pool of pressed dinosaur rivals the Gulf of Mexico)
Montel Williams is an American veteran, and he is particularly incensed about the scandal over veteran deaths as a result of secret waiting lists. Moreover, he was bothered by how President Obama was at West Point, yet didn’t take a moment to apologize for how his administration has dropped ball on veterans’ health.
Williams told Neil Cavuto that giving Secretary Shinseki the boot won’t really fix much. He said soldiers left the battlefield abroad only to come back to another battlefield at home, saying he is “angry” as hell because “our guys went over, they’ve left body parts, some of them never made it back, some of them are here now but their souls are still there, and we have the audacity to turn our back on them right this second.”
As for Obama’s West Point speech, Williams bewilderedly said, “The president just promised five billion dollars for terrorists around the world at West Point?! Where he could have used the day to say, ‘I’m sorry for the pain that I’ve caused you, the families, and I’m gonna fix it today!'”
He called for a “VA surge” to help these veterans, and had some tough words for the nation on how it’s gradually forgotten about veterans over the years. “Be as tired as you want,” Williams said, “but that barbecue you had on Sunday was paid for on the backs of soldiers who left body parts in the battlefield. So you have no right to forget!”

Throughout the history of the world, the average person on earth has been extremely poor: subsisting on the modern equivalent of $3 per day. This was true until 1800, at which point average wages—and standards of living—began to rise dramatically. Prof. Deirdre McCloskey explains how this tremendous increase in wealth came about. In the past 30 years alone, the number of people in the world living on less than $3 per day has been halved. The cause of the economic growth we have witnessed in the past 200 years may surprise you. It’s not exploitation, or investment. Innovation—new ideas, new inventions, materials, machinery, organizational structures—has fueled this economic boom. Prof. McCloskey explains how changes in Holland and England in the 1600s and 1700s opened the door for innovation to take off—starting the growth that continues to benefit us today.

Another lie is the bailout of the insurance companies. The way it is being played is for the populace to be against it so that the dhimmicretina can say “the people don’t want it”. Then they can refuse to honor their commitment and bankrupt the insurance companies so there will be no alternatives to government run plans. Of course the death of the insurance companies will hurt a lot of 401(k) plans and move employees to be government union members.
The same people said you can keep your plan are saying they’ll fix Obamacare. They won’t.
