    You bet! And, it’s time to strike back. I suggest we start a jihad against the infid… oh, wait.

    Thomas Basile might think that the TP movement started in 2009, but that’s completely false. A Koch-funded group tried to start an *identical* movement in 2002. It didn’t take, but in 2009 it was revived.

    That Koch-funded group went on to split into two parts, both of which were very strong supporters of the 2009 version of their invention: AFP and FreedomWorks. Without the help of both groups, most people would probably have never heard of the TPers.

    There are various reasons why the TPers are toxic, and the major reason is that Americans have rejected their fringe ideas. While most Americans might call themselves fiscal cons, they don’t actually support fiscal conservatism. They reject the Randroid concepts of the TPers; “47%” is a key reason Mitt lost.

    Another reason is their Alinksy tactics: most Americans are decent people and don’t favor those who engage in personal smears, think that ranting is a argument, and so on.

    Throughout their history, the TP “patriots” have been led by those who support things like a massive legalization for illegal aliens: Armey, Koch, Rubio, Paul, Cruz, etc. etc. The TP “Patriots” send out missives calling amnesty fan Rand Paul a “hero”. While some TP groups might be OK on amnesty, the base is awfully quiet about those major groups that aren’t.

    So, with the TPers you not only get policies that most Americans reject, but now they’re in effect enabling amnesty.

    While CrazyOtto and I agree on our dislike for Erickson*, CrazyOtto is engaging in a fallacy. We don’t have to choose between Rubio’s plan (or similar) and deporting everyone. The alternative is “SelfDeport”, which is favored by the leading groups (NumbersUSA etc.) and which even Romney briefly (and half-heartedly) supported.

    Much of what Marco writes about this is on its face delusional. The only question is whether he’s actually delusional, or whether he’s just trying to deceive.

    For instance, he thinks that illegal alien criminals will “come forward” to be deported. And, that’s delusional.

    He thinks his plan will “wipe out the black market for low skilled labor”, and that too is delusional. His plan will *reward* those who’ve helped create the black market: chicken processors, growers, big banks, construction companies, etc. They’ll all be let off the hook for their past actions *and* they’ll get what they want: even more “cheap” labor (paid for by everyone else).

    If you want to do something about this, make sure as many people as possible see my extensive discussions of why his plans won’t work:

    http://24ahead.com/s/marco-rubio

    Share that page – or just the ideas on it – with as many people as you can on Facebook, Twitter, and in forums. Turn as many people as possible against Marco, and that will send a message to the rest of the GOP that they should support our current laws, not amnesty.

    “Stay tuned — this should be interesting”. That’s it? That’s all this site has to say?

    No recognition that Glenn Beck encouraged his fans to donate to the Chamber a few years ago?

    No recognition that the Chamber was as bad on this issue then as they are now?

    No recognition that one Rep. even suggested the Chamber register as a Foreign Agent due to their actions on immig.?

    And, no plan to deal with this?

    The great majority of Americans don’t want amnesty. If many of them joined together to oppose both the Chamber and the unions on this issue, the Chamber and the unions might back off.

    I don’t have the reach to do that, but Beck does. So, why doesn’t he put the national interest first and do it?

    The Red Rocks concert venue is part natural formation, part man-made.

    The man-made part was built by *FDR’s CCC*.

    Maybe for an encore, Romney can lay a wreath on Lenin’s tomb.

    Godfather1: some of the five are pretty weak, but the claim by Deval Patrick (the MA gov) is misleading, no?

    P.S. A story no one else is covering (and seem not to want to cover it) is that the DNC2012 platform includes a pro-O quote from an illegal alien:

    O has repeatedly done things like this.

    And, despite that he became a Senator and then President. A wise man might wonder why: how could he become president despite all his baggage? Then, that wise man might reassess how he opposes Obama and try to figure out how he himself has failed.

    See, this video is going to have no impact whatsoever: it’s not going to change any minds. If you want to do that, you have to find smart people to try to intellectually engage O, as I tried to do over five years ago:

    http://24ahead.com/blog/archives/006350.html

    R/w bloggers and other leaders never gave me any help with that, despite what I wanted to talk to him about being worse that the video above. In fact, I even got pushback from supposed Obama opponents when looking for help getting O asked that question. And, that’s stupid.

    Bachsman: Snopes is OK when it comes to technical matters, but not OK when it comes to politics and other controversial issues:

    http://24ahead.com/s/snopes

    I’ve left dozens of comments at MMFA over the past several years pointing out how they got things wrong. Not pointing out their partisan bias, but simply how they didn’t tell their readers the truth. I’ve only very rarely gotten any backup from others. If you want to do something about MMFA, join up and leave comments showing how they mislead their readers, and backup others who do that.

    jrook: the long-term goal is in fact to phase out incandescents. The two current alternatives have various problems. LEDs cost a lot and have a heavy manufacturing footprint. And, you almost need a hazmat suit if you break the other type. The halogens cost more, AFAIK aren’t made in the U.S., and once again they want to phase out incandescents entirely over several years.

    So, who do we blame? The Dems and the far-left are just doing what comes naturally for them. They can’t really be “blamed” because they’re just doing their jobs.

    So, who isn’t doing their jobs? Who let this situation happen in the first place.

    For the answer, look no further than the GOP and the teaparty “patriots” (or their predecessors). They helped this situation happen by allowing (in one way or another) mass immig.

    The main reason there are so many retired teachers in the first place is due to mass immig. If we weren’t basically educating millions of citizens of a foreign country we’d have fewer retired teachers, less spending on school building, and less spending overall.

    Yet, the GOP allowed this situation to build to its current state. The teaparty “patriots” have barely said a word about illegal immig. or mass immig. in general, despite it being the topic where the Dems and the far-left are weakest.

    It takes two to tango, and the GOP and the current or nascent teaparty “patriots” matched the Dems step for step.

    If you’re smart and sane and want to oppose both the far-left and the self-described “patriots” in the teaparties, help promote this plan that would have a far greater and far better impact on the U.S. than anything Beck has ever said or done:

    Reid filed to have a cloture vote about the anti-American DREAM Act amnesty on Saturday, and all this site cares about is relatively minor pork?

    The DREAMAct will not only increase social spending, it will give the free-spending Dems and the far-left even more power. Ignoring it now will increase your taxes later and will also reduce your political power.

    Let me suggest making that a higher priority than pork. For the details on the bill and what you can do, see:

    If you oppose illegal/massive immigration, the U.S. Chamber is on the other side.

    For instance, in 2006, Rep. Sensenbrenner (GOP) suggested that the Chamber should register as a foreign agent due to their strong support for illegal immigration: http://24ahead.com/n/4577

    The Chamber joined with the ACLU & the AFL-CIO to oppose enforcement: 24ahead.com/n/7267

    They got $$$ from illegal immigration profiteers due to supporting amnesty: 24ahead.com/n/7265

    They may have collaborated with the Mexican government on NAFTA trucks: 24ahead.com/n/8030

    Even more here: 24ahead.com/s/us-chamber-commerce

    Once again: if you oppose illegal/massive immigration, the Chamber is on the other side.
