The myth that conservatives who want increased immigration
enforcement are just anti-Hispanic has now been proved a lie.
Indeed, the #1 target for deportation in the United States today
isn’t Mexican, but Canadian: Justin Bieber!
That said, anyone wanting to contact their congressman to voice their
opinion on the new Ryan Amnesty Act of 2014 can call the U.S. Capitol
switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Actually, you can use this number to
call Congress on any issue, not just immigration.
This year’s Republican response to the State of the Union Address
was, once again, HORRIBLE.
And don’t give me this crud about how tough it is for anyone to
follow POTUS after his SOTU. The GOP needs to stop delivering
boring, uninspiring, cookie-cutter, inside-the-beltway speeches
prepared by “professional” speechwriters and instead try talking
like, you know, real people.
Democrats in Nevada have had a field day with the announcement that
former liberal lieutenant governor Sue Wagner left the Republican
Party because, she says, it’s shifted too far to the right.
Two things: First, Sue Wagner hasn’t been an active Nevada
Republican for over 20 years. Secondly, Wagner is so liberal she
makes Gov. Brian Sandoval (R&R-Partners) look like a Bircher.
Her departure from the GOP is neither meaningful nor a big loss.
While bending over backwards to raise a bundle of cash for R&R
Partners’ hand-picked lieutenant governor candidate, “Moderate
Mark” Hutchison, word on the street is that Gov. Brian Sandoval
(R&R Partners) has barely lifted a finger for GOP attorney general
candidate Adam Laxalt, who is running against R&R Partners’
anointed candidate in that race, Democrat Secretary of State Ross
Democrat congressional candidate Erin Bilbray’s
gang-that-couldn’t-shoot-straight campaign recently lost her
highly-regarded campaign manager, Bradley Mayer, and replaced him
with a liberal abortion rights activist with no experience as a
campaign manager and whose main claim to fame is working on a past
Nancy Pelosi campaign.
I still think the Democrats’ problem isn’t the wrong campaign
manager in this race, but the wrong candidate.
Conservative Assemblyman Ira Hansen (R-Washoe) says government
bureaucrats from the Nevada Department of Wildlife have a vendetta
against him which is behind its “filing of four misdemeanor counts
of unlawfully setting traps.” And when you look at the actual law,
it’s hard to argue his point.
It’s also another reminder: The more money you give government, the
more harassment of this sort the government is able to rain upon us
Since the Legislature has refused to act, conservative activist
Sharron Angle has filed a ballot initiative that, if approved, would
require everyone to show a photo ID before voting, just like the
photo ID you have to show before boarding a plane or cashing a check.
Makes sense. Just do it.
