Already TKC doesn't want to hear what Dead Tree Media Newsies have to say about Eric Cantor's defeat . . .


Local implications . . .

I notice very smart Kansas City Insiders reminding us that Kansas doesn't use the same open primary system so this really doesn't mean much for the Kansas slapfight . . . Despite how much newsies will be forced to write about Dr. Milton Wolf.

Moreover . . .

This recent wave of immigration that everybody hates is actually Central American . . . On the bright side, here in Kansas City we're seeing more Hondurans, folks from El Salvador and Guatemalans because this town is still a transit hub even if I-35 and the airport is really thing keeping KCMO viable.  

Local impact . . .

Have you tried a pupusa? They're fantastic and maybe the only real world implication and benefit that we can all enjoy while talking heads debate the mass migration of people that has mostly been unstoppable since theythe dawn of human history.

But most importantly . . .


Their rallies are embarrassing and they haven't elected anybody worthwhile locally. EVAR. . . . The fad might be catching steam in other parts of the nation but in KCMO the tea party remains a collection of nobodies.

If Melton Wolf ran against Kevin Yoder instead of Pat Roberts, he could have gone to Congress.

The wage-earning voters of Rep. Cantor's district apparently felt abandoned by his immigration positions that virtually ignored their anxiety about stagnant wages and high unemployment and that projected primary concern for unlawful foreign visitors and employers seeking more foreign workers.

There is a hell of a cultural difference, in my opinion between Central Americans and Mexicans.

Changed demographics have made it all but impossible for a true Conservative to win a Presidential election ever again. We could however carve out a large section of what used to be the United States and create an American homeland. That's what we should be working for. Elect Conservatives to your local councils and state legislatures, as well as to the Governor's office. This will ensure that a functioning government is in place when the split occurs. Also dump people like Cantor from the House and Senate and elect people like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz so that we have allies in the Federal government that can negotiate on our behalf with the regime.Remember that if you can't eat it, drink it, wear it, or shoot it, it may not be worth owning in the near future. It's coming and pretending it's not wont do anything but leave you unprepared.

Politicians of both parties know they have to court the Hispanic vote- but it can sure backfire it seems. But American workers that are struggling don't need anyone to vote for them- they need more pressure on companies to raise wages and the ONLY way to do that is to have a less supply of workers. Simple supply and demand. I personally like all the cheap labor from China and Mexicans here doing farm work etc - as it does reduce prices in the end. But if I was a workingclass US citizen I would be upset.

Saturating 1st world countries with 3rd world immigrants -- people who haven't been for primed advanced capitalism -- will bury this nation economically and deteriorate the already broken political system.

But where are the progressives? Where's the concern that the flood of illegal immigrants will either A) boost unemployment among blacks and Latinos B); or lower wages for disenfranchised working class people?

Moreover, we can't even provide sufficient care for our veterans ... yet President Obama is calling for $2 billion in aid for illegals?

The insanity and backwardness of multiculturalism is ending in the West before our eyes. Imagine a 1st world government busing you around the nation to a preferred destination, then providing housing and welfare to live after they helped you cross their border? How can we Americans be so stupid?

The fringe sect of the progressive electorate to whom this president panders is destroying this nation. Because the Democrats will be crushed this fall, look for historic levels of corruption from now till November (as this is Obama's last chance to push the fringe agenda).

From south Texas--

"“As a Border Patrol Agent, I can tell you as an eye witness that we are currently losing more than we are catching,” the agent claims, whose name has been withheld to protect him from retaliation.

Labeling efforts to secure the border an “ongoing crisis,” the agent points to numerous issues further adding to the fruitless task, including a lack of staffing, a lack of support from the American people and the Obama administration’s refusal to acknowledge the crisis.

Patrolling the Rio Grande Valley sector, the United States’ southernmost border with Mexico and its most porous, the agent says immigrants who evade capture are typically the most violent.

“The ones we are losing are convicted felons, aliens from special interest countries, and other high risk individuals. We are so overwhelmed and preoccupied by the flood of juveniles and family units that we cannot use our resources to catch the more serious aliens,” the agent states.

Furthermore, the agent says, under the direction of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, immigrants are being rounded up and released in largely-Hispanic populated South Texas towns, such as Brownsville and McAllen, because “fewer people will notice or care.”

“We have been doing that for months before the stories broke in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago,” reports the agent."

Except that Brat has nothing to do with the Tea Party. He didn't embrace them, got very little money from Tea Party sources and was heavy on policy instead of the usual bar stool rhetoric associated with morons like Wolf.

Dear Mr. Obama: 

I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for
 my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.
 We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into
 Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements.

 We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, 
 quotas and laws.

 I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here So, would
 mind telling your buddy, the President of Mexico , that I'm on my
 way over?

 Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking Government bureaucrats for all services I might
 need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking
 (bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American
 culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag
 poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and 

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy
 access to
 government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don't plan to
 car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn
 local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo 
 their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol
 car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put US. flag 
 on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not
 want any
 complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, 
 have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be
 extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, 
or about the
 strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I'll need income tax credits so that although I don't pay
 taxes, I'll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 
 help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican
 Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these
 for all of his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico.
I am
 sure that the
 President of Mexico won't mind returning the favor if you ask him 

Do you see how stupid this looks when you put it in writing????

Logic is dead. 

Excellence is punished. 

Mediocrity is rewarded. 

And dependency is to be revered. 

This is present day America. 

When people rob banks they go to prison. 

When they rob the taxpayer they get re-elected.

They love Mexican food but not the people who make it and serve it. Same with Chinese food.

In related news.....
A stunning 64% of Americans say the country is on the wrong track as President Obama's recent actions (too numerous to list) have sent his approval rating plunging to a mere 44% - the lowest (according to a Bloomberg poll) since his Presidency began.

Chuck, I agree. When the term "Hispanic" is used, it means Mexican. Immigration is a non-issue for Puerto Ricans since all Puerto Ricans born in PR or the US are born citizens. Cubans if they can get here are treated as asylum seekers and those born here are affluent and vote Republican.

Dennis Prager once defined a minority as: “Non-white and or non-European people who have been oppressed through history by white Europeans, except for Koreans and Cubans and they vote Republican anyway.”

Here is a dirty little secret the Media doesn't want you to know: illegal immigration is not popular with second and third generation Mexicans and first generation who came here legally.

The Democrats see Mexicans as voters and other than that, they go not care about their well being. Look how they have treated African-Americans. The worst losers in this so called immigration reform are African-Americans. Just as the worst loser in the legal abortion position of the Democrats are African-Americans since most of the abortions are preform on them. The Democratic Party is for African-Americans the party of silent genocide.

2:37 has some good points. Many people on this post have good points. Illegal immigration is not popular among legals. There is a caste system.

The Tea Party is to the United States what Pol Pot was to Cambodia.

Pol Pot decided that Cambodia's biggest problem was too many intellectuals, so he decided to get rid of them. How do you do that? Easy! Just kill, enslave or imprison everybody who wears glasses. Unfortunately, it worked really well. Pol Pot is long since dead, and Cambodia still suffers today from a huge shortage of educated people who know how to do what's needed to pull a much-abused country out of the Stone Age.

Cambodia will be a basket case for decades to come. Our Pol Pot era is only beginning.

Tea Party powerless locally?

Are you aware of a state called Kansas that's kind of just down the street? Tea Party guv, Tea Party legislature. And a hell of a yard sale in a year or two when it goes broke.

Tea bagging is just a re-branding of the republican party. A way for the extremism to try to distance itself from the failed policies of the Bush admin.
