Time for an "Obama is like a dolphin" tag.
Oh, my...two feverish constituencies kicked to the curb in one swoop. LBGT BFF's deleted, and then, wowza! Dicky Trumka, director of all things labor, is pissed off. Beautiful.
So Leahy says he took it out because Republicans said they'd oppose the whole bill if that was left in there. A. Do we know this to be true, and B. Did Patches forget the Dems have a majority in the Senate? He could get the R's on record as opposing gayness.
CEO: I just read that as "We'd lose red state Dems if we did this, but we can't blame them."
Matthew--There is that, LOL.
Obama hasn't done anything for black folks, either. Like gays, they were one of his constituencies who would vote for him no matter what. Gotta save your money, time and effort for those who might or might not "put out" for you. You don't have to wine and dine those who are already on their backs with their legs spread.
"...and the Republicans hate the both of you!"There. I finished it for you Ann.
I wonder how closeted gay Republicans feel about this.
This is the political analog to polygamy. Blacks, gays and the unions are married to the democrats until death do us part. Indian and Mestizo Hispanics are the new wife being courted.
Ricky Martin could not be reached for comment.
Hispanics are the critical voter group, it is an existential struggle for the gop to peel away hispanic voters. The next gop prez candidate most likely will be hispanic.It is interesting to see what is happening in Cali as MexAmericans dominate Cali politics more and more. Gays are not a large voting group so dems are mainly interested in gays' campaign contributions.
Democrats are interested in doing what is Just. They do so in face of conservative Republican hatred and intolerance. This creates the political need to compromise with the hope that some progress can be made.Ann is critical of the party that is trying to make gains torward justice and equality, but never says a peep about the party that continues to obstruct and use minorities as a wedge issue with white voters.The above is very telling about what Ann really believes in her heart.
They don't make the Dems actually earn their votes (beyond talking) so if you're going to put out a load of B.S. go for the largest population. Its not like the media will call them on it.
And there are a lot more Latinos than gay people.
They do so in face of conservative Republican hatred and intolerance.Did you make that up all on your own? Is demanding that Hispanics adhere to the same immigration laws as Europeans, Africans or Asians constitute hatred and intolerance or are Democrats encouraging a special form of discrimination because they see some low hanging electoral votes that can add to their basket?
Mexico is really struggling with the drug lords, who pull the strings of many gov puppets via bribes and violence. There are cities in Mexico where the military are forced to patrol the cities in convoys of vehicles with mounted machine guns cuz they fear attacks by narco lords.As Cali turns into Mexifornia, what will stop the Mexican narco violence and corruption from flowing into Cali? How will the Cali dem party transform as MexAmericans dominate it? How will the relationship between Cali and Mexico change?
In the end Ann wants to attract and pacify her intellectually numb Althouse Hillbilly zombies and then sell them toilet paper through her Amazon portal.Yes, a pretty pathetic existence, but this is the best Ann can make of herself.
The thing is that the Democrat Party doesn't truly care about Hispanics or gays but rather pays lip service to their 'plight' solely for the sake of garnering votes. They'll toss taxpayer money their way much like liberals think dropping a five spot in a homeless guys cup and think they made a difference in their life while simultaneously congratulating themselves on their generosity.
From a recent Cali gov report:"The latest projection series indicates that the Hispanic population will be even with the number of non-Hispanic Whites by mid-2013. Early in 2014, the Hispanic population will become the plurality in California for the first time since California became a state. By 2060, both the Black and the White populations will have increased in size, but decreased in proportion to the total population. Hispanics will comprise nearly half (48 percent) of all Californians. Asians will also grow significantly in population, but only marginally relative to the total population (just over 13 percent). Asians are currently just under 13 percent. The non-Hispanic White population will decline to 30 percent from the current 39 percent and the Black population from 6 percent to 4 percent. In 2030, there will be 9.6 million Hispanics in the prime working ages of 25 to 64; Whites will have 7.2 million and Asians 3.1 million. By 2060, Hispanics will be the largest group in the working ages by a considerable margin: 12.1 million Hispanics to 7.4 million Whites and 3.2 million Asians."
So, Republicans continue to play three card race baiting/homophobic monte, but Ann can only seem to find fault with the party that tries to actually make modest advances given the shit storms that conservaties create.Got it.
Yep Colonel it's exceedingly clear that the right cares deeply for Gays and Hispanics.Gays and Hispanics will vote Republican in droves.
Hatman hardest hit."B-b-b-but he's my Messiah".And CEO's point is well taken. Chuckie Schumer knew he had "our Republicans" on a tight leash.Jay Retread said..."...and the Democrats spit on the both of you!"Fixed it for YOU.Democrats are interested in doing what is Just.Suuure they are.That's why they did every dishonest thing they could think of to steal the election.In the end Ann wants to attract and pacify her intellectually numb Althouse Hillbilly zombies and then sell them toilet paper through her Amazon portal.Retread has been so busy waiting for his talking points on anything, he hasn't heard there's no TP in the Lefty paradise anymore.So, Republicans continue to play three card race baiting/homophobic monte, but Ann can only seem to find fault with the party that tries to actually make modest advances given the shit storms that conservaties create.The only race-baiting here comes out of Retread and all the problems the last 20 years have been the Demos' doing.But the Lefties desperately need somebody to scream, "SQUIRRL!!!!", so we have Retread.
Yep Colonel it's exceedingly clear that the right cares deeply for Gays and Hispanics.The right doesn't think they deserve any special treatment that isn't afforded anyone else. Hispanics should follow the same immigration procedures as Africans, Asians or Europeans. It's liberals that want to bend the rules for them, solely to obtain a voting bloc, not because they actually care about them. Don't you find it ironic that liberals are actually the racists in that they are advocating for immigration reform based solely on one ethnic group?
Inga said...Yep Colonel it's exceedingly clear that the right cares deeply for Gays and Hispanics.The She Devil of the SS forgets how hard the Lefties work to keep their constituent groups in poverty and ignorance.
Gays and Hispanics will vote Republican in droves.If gays and Hispanics will vote based on what's in it for them versus what is fair and just then they will vote Democrat.
Colonel, if homosexuals and Hispanics voted their best interests, they'd vote Republican.Only people who don't want to improve their lives vote Democrat.Just look at our trolls.
There are more Latino voters than gay voters.
Sorry, but this whole thing was just part of the Dem-Repub kabuki theater to pass this ridiculous immgration bill. We're being taken for fools.But that's only because we are.

Republicans led the way in getting special treatment in illegal immigration to Freedom Loving Cubans. Democrats then pandered to non-Cuban "refugees" be they refugees from poverty, natural disasters in the 3rd World - promising to give them the cushy deal the Cuban "Freedom Lovers" - 3rd Worlders also more interesting in fleeing than fighting to improve their native land...2. Republicans pandered for special Amnesty for Jews needing visas..on grounds Jews were more special than others except Cubans. For Cubans, it was the Floridal swing vote. For 30 years, Republicans desperately wanted the Jewish vote in Florida as well...but more important than that...the tremendous Jewish clout in media and other levers of power..and access to the tremndous Jewish wealth in filling the coffers of the Party they favor.Democrats then piled on, wanting not just mass immigration of Soviet Jews and other Jews anywhere but also any Muslim or gay or Latino claiming "persecution".
Obama: I love you brownies!!! Pimpin' ain't easy.
Everything Benghazi Barry says comes with an expiration date, unless it has already expired.
The Senate "Death to America" panel voted Monday to allow illegal immigrants who get legal status to begin collecting welfare. What makes you think they'll not start granting special privileges to illegal gay immigrants?
No matter what USA laws are, Mexicans and Central Americans will continue to pour into the USA if they can make more money (by jobs, crime, or welfare) here than Mexico/Central America and aren't likely to be deported (which they aren't). Their kids who are born here will be citizens of the USA. Just discussing amnesty in congress is enough to spur tons of illegal immigration.Mexico feels that the USA stole Cali, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona from Mexico and that those states rightfully belong to Mexico. Mexicans in the USA and MexAmericans tend to have a deep emotional link to Mexico cuz it is next door so they can still visit their family in Mexico and receive visits from their family in Mexico. Many MexAmericans have hung onto their language and culture and think that Mexico is superior to the USA in many important ways (aside from the economy thing). Take in a USA vs Mexico soccer game and you will see that the vast majority of MexAmerican fans there will be cheering for Mexico. Reconquista is the Mexican term for taking back the territory (i.e. Cali, Texas, N, and Ariz) that they think rightfully belongs to them. Reconquista seems to be progressing quite well and it seems very unlikely that the USA has the political will to stop it. Reconquista does not require that those 4 states leave the USA, initially at least it would be political domination of those 4 states by Mexicans and MexAmericans, a special arrangement with Mexico for those four states, and growing autonomy for those four states from federal control.Texas and Cali have huge, world class economies so they are obvious targets. Minus the people and politics, Cali is an amazing place wrt to weather and natural beauty.In the not so long run, why would Mexicans in the USA and MexAmericans subordinate themselves to an American political party?
