pjohnf - Gov. Quinn calls special session for comptroller election - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Quinn should butt out and let Rauner appoint an interim comptroller and decide if an election is needed or even wanted by Illinois citizens. Why waste more tax payer dollars for a special session, especially if Rauner disagrees with Quinn's stance. The earliest election would be 2016, so what's the hurry Quinn? The special session is a total waste of tax payer dollars

There are very few truly victimless crimes. If you look at Quincy, the arrests and names you see over and over again aren't usually getting picked up for smoking a joint, they're getting arrested for cooking and selling meth. Many times they're putting kids in danger, and the majority of the time they're also sucking from the public teat instead of cleaning up their act and getting…

Bud, to his credit, is one of the only board members that ever sets foot in the schools. During one of his visits, he found a book in a second grade classroom he took an interest in and asked the teacher if he could borrow it, bless his heart.

Strawman: Obama's Right--It's Time to Fix the Immigration System........

4 months, 3 weeks ago by Strawman

 

 I agree with President Obama.  I agree with Dick Durbin, Harry Reed, Nancy Pelosi and all those in Washington who say our immigration system is broken and in need of repair.  They’re right.  It’s a mess.  As it stands now ICE and the border agents aren’t being allowed to do their jobs, which has caused hardship for those coming into the country illegally.  We are endangering those we’re currently warehousing.  Human beings are being used by this country’s politicians as props.  You and I are being depicted as heartless, and in some cases racists, should we not condone the invasion of our southern border.

And today, with the news that this government is planning on getting into the Coyote business and shipping Hondurans directly to the states---with you and I paying the freight-----it’s time for a change.  A change you can believe in.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/world/americas/administration-weighs-plan-to-move-processing-of-youths-seeking-entry-to-honduras-.html?_r=0

So here goes.

Commencing NOW, grant ICE the right to apprehend and determine---on the spot—whether someone should be allowed to enter the United States of America.  If ICE won’t do it, allow the states to handle it.

Then, deport them all.  Deport anyone who enters this country illegally.  Nationality matters not.  Age is not a factor.  Family isn’t a talking point. They all go.  And we should start with those we have under lock and key.  Feed them, clothe them and send them packing.  Adios amigo!!

Strawman, that’s a totally racist view of the situation.

OK, so I’m a racist. But that’s your politically correct view.  And it's your right to feel that way.  But before you put that terrible label on me, answer a few questions---if you can.

Where does it say the American citizen should lay down and take the nonsense we’re taking now?  Where is it written you and I are responsible for the care and feeding of those breaking and entering our country? 

And we grant them rights and comfort them?  What?   It doesn’t work that way anywhere else in the world.  It sure doesn’t work that way in Mexico, does it?  Ask Sgt. Tahmooressi how he likes the Mexican hospitality.  Oh, you forgot about him.  Your last name wouldn’t be Obama, would it? 

Am I thought to be a racist if I don’t pick up the check for a family of color at McDonalds?  Am I a racist if I don’t buy groceries for a single mother of six, all shapes, sizes and color?  If your answer is no, then why am I a racist if I don’t believe we should provide rights and entry into our country for just anyone who shows up???

I’ve called the Obama regime the “get even with Whitey” administration for years now. Isn’t the most recent turn of events evidence of that?  Isn’t it obvious Mr. Obama is working a plan to “change” the color and complexion of this country?  Sure he is.  And, by working more with the thugs running the countries in Central America than his own Congress, he’s made it painfully obvious.

 More money?  Sure!  Throw money at it, remember?  The start-up figure for this new refugee plan is 47 million dollars.  But we don’t know where the money is actually going or what we get for it, do we?  It’s 47 million out of the country into the hands of----can you give me a name here?  The Barack Obama Honduran library?   Nothing new here, nothing new.

And nothing new is going happen here in America.  Not with Boehner, McConnell and that bunch “representing” us.  They’re petrified one of the networks might call them mean spirited or racist.

Oh what the hell.  Maybe we should all just stop paying taxes and let this bunch of lefties run out of money.  I’m already thought to be a racist.  What’s a little tax evasion going to hurt?
