Obama Talks Immigration at 2012 State of the Union Address

Supposedly the USA needs to expand its Brain Trust, especially in the area of math and science. Yet, we have people that have grown up in this country we aren't willing to keep here and improve our Brain Trust.

The hideousness of the circumstances of these young people are completely obvious. The USA allows Visas for people to come to the USA to fill in any of the holes in our Brain Trust, but, these people are educated in the USA yet not allowed to their citizenship.


The Republican obstruction of keeping earnest young people from citizenship that love their country, the USA, is not only Anti-American, but, it makes absolutely no sense, degrades the Brain Trust of the USA and throws away the financial investment the USA has made with them.

Deportation of these people is the most Anti-American idea I have ever witnessed. It is despicable. It is nothing but OVERT and COMPELLING BIGOTRY!!!!!!

Opposing The Dream Act for any reason is bigotry.  There is no other word or any reasonable motivation to justify obstruction of this legislation!  

Given the hatred Rubio openly showed to The President at CPAC clearly indicates he is untrustworthy when it comes to race and understanding the impacts of being a minority.

Marco Rubio believes in the Dream Act, but, just not THIS Dream Act.

The Dream Act today is real.  The wishy-washy stance by Rubio endangers the future of the people served by the The Dream Act.  Why RISK trusting his politicking and sacrifice a bill ready to serve the people in most need.

There is nothing honorable about a Senator, especially a Hispanic Senator, that can't be trusted to carry out The Dream Act.  He is not willing to be Bi-Partisan.  He wants Americans to believe there is bipartisanship, but, he withholds his support of vital legislation.  

He talks out of both sides of his mouth and cannot commit to any aspect of securing the children he proclaims he wants to protect.

He is nothing but rhetorical for the purpose of politics.  He has no commitment to the people he serves, but, I am confident he has plenty of commitment to the money that funds him.  Why should Rubio commit to The Dream Act?  After all he has another five years before his next election and obstructing any such initiative could get him a nomination for the Veep slot or better.

Rubio has ambition, but, no ability to the serve the people for the sake of his ambition.

Marco Rubio's career is mostly over.

At CPAC he stated, "I don't know what the South African Constitution is, but, I do know what the USA Constitution is."

His speech was suppose to be in opposition of the President's policies.  


It's over Marco.  Over.  

Besides his arrogant bigotry of African Americans, he has lied about his immigrant status as well.  His family did not come to the USA as stated.

Now, he wants to end birth control to women.

This if from "The Florida Independent."

Mother Jones reports (click title to entry - thank you) that Sen. Marco Rubio’s legislative response to a federal decision requiring health insurers to cover contraception as a preventive service “could cut off birth control coverage for millions of women who receive it through their health plans.”
Rubio, R-Fla., introduced the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Senate Bill 2043, last month. The bill would would roll back the federal government’s mandate through the Affordable Care Act that requires health plans, beginning Aug. 1, to cover birth control without a co-payment.
One of the most vocal opponents of the decision since it was first announced, the Catholic Church, has said it will continue to fight the mandate. Bishops have even threatened legal action....

...Religious Americans, overall, support the federal decision. Polling released yesterday by the Public Religion Research Institute shows that even a majority of Catholics think employers should be required to provide health care plans that cover birth control at no cost. The survey also found that “a majority (55 percent) of Americans agree that ‘employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception and birth control at no cost.’ Four-in-ten (40 percent) disagree with this requirement.”...

Rubio has no spine to support his past views that got him elected.

Senator Marco Rubio recently delivered a compelling and emotional speech on illegal immigration at the annual Hispanic Leadership Network meeting, but Rubio may have left many in the room, and perhaps across the country wondering if this speech marked the beginning of a ‘softening’ by Rubio on this important issue.
At the very beginning of his speech, Rubio was heckeled by pro-Dream Act activists, who were there in protest of the Senators hard-line views on immigration, making the case for his continued anti-amnesty position.
During the course of his remarks, Rubio stated that there is “broad bi-partisan support for a notion that we should somehow figure a way to accommadate them (Dream Act Kids).”(VIDEO)
While Rubio has come out in opposition to the Dream Act, Rubio has always questioned what is to happen to the children who were brought here to this country illegally by their parents.
Rubio campaigned on a pro-legal immigration platform and thus far he has been staunchly against any form of amnesty for illegal immigrants, but he has hit a couple of bumps along that road that give immigration hawks cause for concern....

Don't fall into the WEDGE trap with Speaker Boner.

I am sure Rove is gloating over the wedge issue regarding the Catholic Church OVER-REACHING. I simply can't stand by and watch this anymore.

...The decision, (click title to entry - thank you) with the main opinion written by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., was clearly one of the most important church-state rulings that the Court had issued since its 1990 ruling, in a case involving a Native American church ritual of smoking peyote.  In that case, the Court allowed the government to apply “neutral and general” laws to some religious practices, but the Chief Justice on Wednesday said that did not control the new ruling — in the case of Hosanna-Tabor Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (docket 10-553)....

The Catholic Church is playing politics again. It is just that simple. They may have unwittingly backed into it because of Murdoch's megalomania media empire Wall Street Journal's interpretation of the Hosanna-Tabor decision, but the Vatican has lawyers. So, I don't think the Catholic Church is that innocent. They are applying the recent decision by the Supreme Court as if every employee of their institutions are MINISTERS. They aren't and they are attempting to apply more pressure to the USA to come under their dominion so they can continue to extend their power over the entire of the USA faithful. I am sure it is inspired by god.

...Scarcely two weeks ago, (click here) in its Hosanna-Tabor decision upholding the right of churches to make ministerial hiring decisions, the Supreme Court unanimously and enthusiastically reaffirmed these longstanding and foundational principals of religious freedom.  The court made clear they they include the right of the religious institutions to control their internal affairs....

Archbishop Dolan is correct in that the decision gave the Catholic Church dominion over their teachers when those teachers are 'speaking the word.' However, that does not give Catholic Church INSTITUTIONS power over their employees when they are not 'speaking the word.' 

The teacher that sued the Catholic Church was out on medical leave for a substantial amount of time, when she returned she had to requalify by exposing reasons why she should be allowed to continue to teach. She refused and stood on her employee record. She was excused from her future employee so she sued. 

When she was employed by the Catholic Church she was a layman teacher. She did teach a faith based class which was 6% of her teaching responsibilities. That was her downfall. I can't imagine throwing a qualified teacher returning to her classes after a medical leave out because of a six percent teaching load, but, that is what occurred.

Ms. Perich spent most of her time teaching nonreligious subjects (click here) with about a sixth of her time on religion classes, so the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit concluded that she was not a ministerial worker and that she could sue. In overturning that decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the question could not be “resolved by a stopwatch” and that Ms. Perich’s limited teaching about religion helped qualify her as a minister.
The court’s conception of the ministerial role is more encompassing than it has been defined by state and federal appellate courts. Its sweeping deference to churches does not serve them or society wisely.
The Ministerial Exception is what this is about. The Catholic Church is overreaching and they do this. They like creating wedge issues to give them more power over people. And the GOP simply plays to it for political gains.  It is like Bradley throwing a Hail Mary at the end of the Superbowl.  If you catch it you win the game. The GOP catches the 'political implications and simply runs with it.

Introduction:  Supreme Court Case on Ministerial Exception to EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION LAW. (click here)

Discimination laws are important and I am sure the Catholic Church is comforted by the decision of the Supreme Court, however, that decision does not have implications to all their employees.  I find it hard to believe the maintenance crew in any of their hospitals is ministering to others. Those employees have a right to health care coverage as their own religious preferences deem appropriate.

Republicans love these issues as it serves as a complete distraction to their incompetency.  They pander to social issues that serve as wedge issues because they can be elected without being competent.  The 2010 elections proved that.  

Women are soft targets and somehow having babies is suppose to enslave them forever.  It isn't enough to love children they give birth to, they have to have a lot of children and give their lives up to their uterus as well as any hope for having their children receive substantial education.  The Catholic Church needs to address the impoverished status of the majority of their global populous and then demand women voluntarily be chattel to unreasonable church leadership.

It is understandable why the GOP distains education. Waste of money, especially for the distaff side of the family.  Completely.
