And Jeb Bush’s plan is to, at best, do nothing. He will, of course, move to give status and a pathway to citizenship to every illegal in this country. Sure, he’ll use a fig leaf of them having to learn the language, catch up on taxes, and pay a penalty. ALl of these will be waived. It’s another case of the Establishment GOP metaphorically p-ing on our legs and swearing that it’s just raining out. If he’s the nominee, he loses the base and a big share of Independents. We will then have 4 or 8 more years of progressive leadership in the White House. I’ve never seen an election where there are only two distasteful alternatives. It’s like asking you whether you want to be shot or stabbed.

If the cable companies were smart – they’re not – they would offer a la carte services. Who wants to spend upwards of $100 a month for a whole slew of channels you don’t watch and don’t want to pay for? The major networks that have cable channels force the cable companies to take a package of channels, many of which are just garbage and could not exist without being part of that package.
Tommyguns, the cable companies don't really care if they provide ala carte or not, its the content providers that care. Take a look at ESPN for example they sit in the basic tier so that means they get paid by the cable companies for every subscriber. If cable goes ala carte ESPN will loose millions not the cable companies because now only people who watch ESPN will pay for it.

I am so enjoying watching Fox News back the wrong horse in this race. They’ve taken sides instead of letting the voters choose. That’s not responsible journalism. I only kept cable TV so that I could watch Fox News. Now I don’t have to. I choose not to watch news stations who tell me how I should think instead of just giving me the news from both perspectives, conservative and liberal, and let me make up my own mind. They are rapidly becoming the conservative MSNBC or CNN. Get back to ethical journalism, and leave the one sided punditry to the other guys!
They have been doing it for YEARS, since about the time of the Casey Anthony trial.

Build the wall first. Then rigidly enforce E-verify, and fine any business who violates it $50,000 per violation for the first offense. For a second offense, the business is seized and the owners charged with a felony punishable by not less than 5 years in prison. Change the laws so that all states are required to confirm citizenship of anyone who is applying for welfare, food stamps, housing assistance, etc. If they are applying on behalf of an anchor baby, the parents get a choice. Go back to your country and leave your child here in foster care, or take the child with you when you go. The child is an American citizen and he or she has a right to stay, not the parents. Require all states, counties, cities or other political subdivisions to enforce immigration laws. If a person is stopped for an offense, and their is a reasonable suspicion that the person is here illegally, then an immediate check should be made with ICE. If they are not legally present, they are taken into custody and deportation proceedings initiated. Change the law so that anyone who is deemed deportable gets one fair hearing to demonstrate they are legally present. If they fail to do so, they get on the next plane, train or bus out of the country. No more lengthy appeals, and no more freebie lawyers at taxpayer expense. If states, counties and cities do not cooperate, all federal funding is stopped immediately, and no student may use federal rants or loans to attend any college or university there.
Maybe YOU should run for president! Makes more sense that the Coulter/Trump plan!

I wouldn’t worry too much about Trump turning off women voters Governor. You’re turning off all voters. I haven’t voted for a Democrat in nearly 40 years. Next year I will be voting for almost anyone except a GOP candidate. I don’t think I’m in the minority either. We dutifully turned out to give the GOP control of Congress, based on their promises of what they would do once elected – repeal and replace Obamacare, put a stop to the unconstitutional amnesty, stop the wasteful spending, and on and on. What we got was far different from the promises. To make matters even worse, Mitch McConnell has demonstrated that the GOP has no principle on which they are ready to go to the mats. His comment that he will not shut down the government gave up any leverage he and the GOP has in budget negotiations, including the CR that’s bound to come, and raising the debt ceiling. The GOP is no better than the Democrats. At least with the Dems you know you’re going to get screwed. With the GOP, you have to worry about being stabbed in the back. I guess that’s their version of having our backs!

Donald Trump is never going to win the nomination, never mind be elected, but he is saying things that the American public wants to hear the candidates talk about. I’m curious what a Senator is supposed to do when his or her party leader is telling lies, manipulating the system for the benefit of special interest groups, and is simply not doing what he promised when he was running for re-election. The most telling comment by Senator Cruz was that we keep electing Republicans to the Congress, but get leaders who will not do what they promised. I’m sorry Charles, but you are so out of touch with what matters to the average voter. The poll that shows 53% of the GOP base is not happy with Congress, is probably overestimating the level of support left in McConnell, Boehner and the rest of the Establishment GOP.
How do you know Trump won't get elected, who can beat him in a 1 on 1 debate? He will make every other PAID politician look like they are on the take..and they are

As the lyrics to a country song say, “You have to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.” Let the President veto the NDAA and explain to the American public why he is denying pay raises to military personnel, opening us up to hostile attacks, etc. If the Congress, acting on behalf of the will of the people – that’s surely a rare occurrence these days – says Gitmo stays open, then let the President explain why the American people are wrong and he’s right.

That’s not enough. If you want to change their policies, ALL FUNDING needs to be cut off to any state, county, city or town that bills itself as, or acts as, a sanctuary. By all funding, it should include direct funding through grants, loans, loan guarantees, contracts with state universities, even guaranteed student loans and education grants to attend any college, university or trade school in any state which does not clamp down on sanctuary cities. Let the people bring pressure to bear on their legislators, governors, mayors, etc., to change their policies.

George, your reasoning ability actually mirrors your acting ability. They both suck. What Justice Thomas was getting at is that nobody, absolutely nobody, can take away or give you dignity. That is something that comes from within yourself, regardless of your circumstances. You, sir, are an idiot, who seems to be trying awfully hard to be relevant, and are coming off as a moron.

Flags kill people, not the dirtbag with the gun. Cars kill people, not the drunk driver behind the wheel. Pens and pencils write hot checks, not the person wielding them. Big Macs kill people, not the Big Butt Bobbys and Berthas who wolf them down. I get it now. For awhile I was confused by the concept of personal responsibility.

The real night of the GOP suicide was when they caved on funding amnesty. Then, too, Cromnibus is bound to cost them so votes. Right now I’m in the anybody but the Republicans for the House and Senate in 2016. I figure it’s marginally better to have an enemy that you know – the Progressive Dems – than one who will pretend to be on your side, but will stab you in the back the minute the votes are counted. The GOP has sold out to special interests, the same as the Dems have. The only difference between them is which special interest groups to whom they rent their allegiance and votes! We really, really, really, need a third party.
I hear ya brother!! A vote recently for mayor had me wondering who would be best?Then heard an ad "Swetman is supported by the MS RINO party" Well I guess I will vote for the ole family of the Dixie Mafia they are more honorable esp. after the BS Cochran pulled.

So what you’re saying is that it’s more important for you to win an election than to follow the existing laws and do the right thing. The people who made the mistake of electing you thought you represented them, not the GOP, the Chamber of Commerce, or anyone else with the clout – money – to rent your loyalty and vote. Sorry Senator, but you need to retire. You’ll never be President, and I sincerely hope the good folks in the Palmetto State will see the light and send someone else to represent them in the United States Senate.

Now wouldn’t it be nice if we gave her a raise to $15 an hour instead of firing her? I mean clearly, this whole episode could ahve been avoided if we’d just mandate that ignorant employees get paid double what they’re worth or, in this case, about 100 times what this waste of good carbon molecules was earning.
you wouldn't happen to own a gun shop and firing range in Delaware would you?

What was wong with the headline? It’s not like they said there were slopes of gooks in their physical and digital armor. Why are their chins on their chest over this, getting their panties in a wad? Had to happen I guess. Seems like everybody’s on the lookout to make them feel slighted for some reason.
January 7, 2015 at 8:06pm
Well GOP, let’s see if you have the intestinal fortitude to go through with your promises to your base and those other taxpaying citizens who voted for you. Call the President’s bluff, and then take your case to the American public. We are paying attention to what you and POTUS are doing. Passing bills that POTUS threatens to veto simply sets out your priorities for the next election cycle. You’ve already screwed the pooch on amnesty by not doing what you promised – de-funding it. Time to pull your big boy pants up and get on with the people’s business.

Oh, good. Now we’ll have GM and the NSA spying on us!

It’s all over but the selection of new drapes and office furniture for the Chamber of Commerce. They have the House and Senate in their pocket, and ordinary Americans are about to get screwed again, big time.
Here are the recipients of their largess
Ever wonder how trade laws wind up costing jobs?
January 6, 2015 at 3:33pm
Way to waste money Governor. You have about two chances of being elected POTUS, slim and none. If you’re supporting amnesty and Common Core, you’ve already alienated a large, a very large, portion of the electorate. Besides, given the GOP’s funding of Obama’s amnesty, the party will be lucky to hold on to the House in 2016. The Senate will definitely turn back to Democrat control, and the White House will be in Democrat hands once again. The Establishment GOP just doesn’t get it. You are supposed to represent ordinary, tax paying, citizens, not the Chamber of Commerce, and not big business, or anyone who can rent your votes.

So it’s okay to bar blood donations from an entire group of persons, but not from another group of high risk individuals that account for the other 38% of new HIV infections. Shouldn’t we find a way to make certain that people who want to donate blood have never been with a prostitute, had sex with someone who ever used IV drugs, or is an IV drug user themselves? Just how should we go about doing that? To be 100% safe, you could just bar all blood donations, and go back to the dark ages of medicine. No matter how you slice and dice it, barring one group from donating blood, but not another group with high risk factors, is plain dumb. Here’s a possible scenario to consider. Suppose a straight man, who likes to do the nasty with his favorite IV drug using girlfriend or prostitute, gets loaded and forgets to use a condom. He gets HIV, but doesn’t know it. He goes to donate blood – he’s a regular at the blood bank – and can honestly say he’s never engaged in homosexual acts, never been an IV drug user, etc. He gives blood and infects somebody who is the recipient of his donation because they could not detect the virus at that stage. How good were your guidelines in preventing that tragedy?
sex in exchange for money or drugs makes a blood donor ineligible for 5 years.
Dude you are so far away from the guidelines it's embarrassing. Go back to huff-po.

These people should have been deported. The GOP is about to sell out the American worker and those who pay the bills. How dare these so called dreamers, who at some point in their young lives knew that they were unlawfully present in the country and consciously decided to continue to violate our laws, demand anything other than a ticket back to where their parents and they came from? My wish for the Christmas Season is that all Americans will demand that this Congress defund the DHS, and include a rider on every appropriation bill that none of the funds may be used, directly or indirectly to fund the illegal amnesty this traitor of a President has issued. They need to go a step further and make it a criminal offense for any government employee to issue social security cards or other ID documents to these people, and prohibit any state from using federal funds to provide any benefits to them.
