Show Me Your Papers

The problem with the new law in Arizona is it presumes anyone who does not speak perfect English, or anyone who had English as a second language is an immigrant and must produce papers. It DOES NOT ALLOW FOR people to have been born here in the US, from families who have been here for hundreds of years, who do not have English as their first language.

While the English first bigots will begin screaming, I live in New Mexico. We are state where many older Hispanics still do not speak English, but their families have been here forever.

Lindsey Graham on Democrat Grandstanding on Immigration

Share

“…”To the Hispanic community – if you bring a bill up now, it’s going to go down,” Graham said after the hearing. “You won’t get 40 votes because nobody can go back home and justify that the system is fixed when we know it’s not.”…” Lindsey Graham

Once again Lindsey has put himself into the cross-hairs, this time with the Dems, for simply being Lindsey and doing what is right.

Barack Obama is attempting (as usual) to subdivide the country along racial lines, trying to ratchet up Hispanic anger against the GOP to get votes in November.

Immigration, Republicans & Demigods on the Left & the Right

Share

They are at it again.

The ugly specter of immigration reform is rearing it’s nasty head.

I have several objections to hard-core immigration reform.

  1. It ignores the actual problem along the border of drug running
  2. It will doom the GOP to a minority party
  3. It is short sighted
  4. It is potentially dangerous to our national interests

Is ALIPAC’s William Gheen a Bigoted Bully & Closet White Supremacist?

Share

The extreme far right is getting downright nasty. Hugh Hewitt is now trying to decide who should and should not be a Republican. Rudy Giuliani has stepped in it by endorsing Trey Grayson over Ron Paul’s heir. Someone needs to warn Rudy that Ron Paul Bots are vile, lying pieces of human debris who are one and the same with the John Birch Society. They will do or say anything to get their way.

Spending, Leadership, Sacred Cows, Third Rails & Hating Lindsey Graham

Share

The Pink Flamingo has been following the libertarian, losertarian and far right attacks on Lindsey for some time. This is more of the connect the dots. When in doubt, trace 90% of the attacks on him back to losertarians and Ron Paul Bots.

FOX has been making mischief again:

“…So when a Fox News story Thursday cited “senior administration sources” as labeling and criticizing an expected carbon fee on the transportation sector as a Graham-sponsored 15-cent-per-gallon gas tax, the reaction from both Graham and the White House was swift.

Tea Party Problems

Share

Beware the Tea Parties:

“...Overall, three out of four tea party attendees said they were “scared about the direction” of the country and “want to send a message to both political parties.” ..”

So far Michael Medved appears to be the only rational conservative who admits that there are some serious problems within the Tea Parties, primarily with some nut cases.

According to the Politico, the group is dividing into the Palin Camp and the Ron Paul (Bot) Camp.

Is Cochise County Murder Drug Related & Sign of Things To Come?

Share

The Pink Flamingo has been following this story the way everyone else has, only I might see it a bit differently. The ONLY story you can find is how dastardly the illegal was who killed Robert Krentz. Unfortunately, THAT is not the story. The Arizona Attorney General said the murder was consistent with that of a drug cartel killing. Unfortunately the Cochise County Sheriff is not going along with the AG. The usual suspects are using their hatred of anyone Hispanic to promote immigration reform.
