Of illegals, friends and Paradise
Don’t you just love the terminology and side-stepping tactics used by liberals? With abortion … initially, “safe” “legal” and “rare.” Only in cases of incest, rape and if the life of the mother is in danger. Suddenly, after 50+ million of those incest, rape and saving the life of the mother instances (I guess it puts “rare” in a whole new perspective) it’s now “women’s health” issues.
Regarding the massive influx of illegal aliens and the suggestion by Donald Trump to deport them as quickly as possible … well … Mark Zuckerberg’s advocacy group, FWD.us says, “It’s just wrong!” “Wrong!” The groups leader continues, … “the idea we should radically restrict pathways for highly-skilled immigrants to come and stay here is – again – just wrong.” and “… but that those who would seek to represent Americans as president are falling all over themselves to support backward policies that would rip apart American families and collapse our economy.”
I’m wondering if THESE are the “highly-skilled immigrants he’s referring to, or perhaps it would be “wrong” to break up those American families who are here out of “love?”
The bottom line is we, (conservatives) cannot give into a liberal agenda or compromise with their ideas at all because there is no limit to their hypocrisy and deception. Give a little and what you get is total chaos.
Maggie (Maggie’s Notebook), Grumpy Elder (Grumpy Opinions) and I had a “talk” about the natural born citizen requirement for becoming president. (I hope I get this right) One of the main topics was Ted Cruz’s eligibility. Grumpy’s contention is that we need to follow the Constitution precisely as it is written and I have to agree with him. If we do, then Ted Cruz probably isn’t eligible to become president. Maggie believes that because Mr. Cruz’s mother was a U.S. citizen that Mr. Cruz is eligible to become president. I agree with her. Maggie pointed out that in Emer de Vattel’s Law of Nations, the mother’s citizenship isn’t considered. But the citizenship or condition of the father is what determines the citizenship of a child born to parents of differing citizenships. Maggie’s point is, why is a woman considered a lesser person than a man? Hopefully that’s not the case any more.
Personally I don’t have any problem what so ever with Ted Cruz’s citizenship, especially after the bending and twisting we had to endure with Obama’s phony documentation. I have to reiterate what Mark Levin said a few years ago regarding Obama’s birth place. Something like, “Let’s pretend Obama was born in Kenya. Do you know how long the litigation process would take? It would have to go all the way to the Supreme Court and do you think for a minute we could get five justices to remove him from office? We have more important things to do than to worry about that nonsense.” In other words, we’ll just ignore the Constitution for now because of the hassle involved with removing a foreign national from the White House. We’ll just let it ride and deal with the destruction as it comes.
This takes me to do we uphold the Constitution if it’s not a hassle or are we going to always? When Obama became president, regardless of the legality of his position I began to think that if the left, the America hating fools bent on destroying this nation, will use any means to reach their goal, why shouldn’t we, conservatives, play a little dirty to stop these freaks? Why can’t we put forth arguments such as Maggie’s to get the best people possible into positions of real power to stop the destruction? Grumpy made the excellent point that if we ignore what the Constitution says … little by little we won’t have one anymore and we’ll lose. I contend if we don’t get in the dirt with these fools we won’t have a Constitution anyway and we’ll still lose. Anyway, it’s something to think about.
Holy Moly! It looks like Trump has inspired the left to use a different tactic in dealing with illegal immigrants. The tactic is to focus on the terminology in referring to children born in the United States to illegal aliens. “Anchor babies” is a no-no now. It’s offensive. Mr. Trump isn’t going for it and will continue to use the term. Marco Rubio … not so much. His non-offensive term is “human beings” … geez, did Rubio check his manhood at the door when he got elected to public office? Debbie Was-a-Man Schultz jumped on Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” suggesting he doesn’t stand with immigrants because of it. Sigh, the pettiness of some of these folks is pathetic.
And now for a little Paradise …
