  •  Cut him some slack. His district is racist. (4+ / 0-)

    Isn't that the standard defense of Blue Dogs around here?

    I see Markos post something and find myself in accord with nearly everything he writes.  I hope he revisits the "more Democrats" thing at some point.  We should be actively working against people like this guy--and not just in primaries.

      My snark meter isn't working too well after the Meta of the past couple days.

      •  It Would Be Hilarious Snark If It Didn't Cut (2+ / 0-)

        quite so close to the bone.

        Many seemingly decent Democrats are boasting how successful Obama is in deporting the Latinos.

        The bigotry is disgusting to this gringo.

        •  How is deporting illegal aliens racist? They came (0+ / 0-)

          here illegally. They do not belong here. They are mostly Latinos because that's who they are. The Mexican border is porous.

          Over 60,000 children of Illegals are enrolled in Texas schools. Who pays for there buildings, teachers and other expenses for these kids.

          I wish we could take in everyone who wants to come here. It's just not possible.

          If we can't provide health care, proper educations, housing for citizens, how do we handle the inflow?

          I know many Dems who have never voted R, but who are very concerned about the extra expenses required to help these people. Again, it's not just because they are Latino. It's because many are un or under educated, have low paying jobs and require services that should be going to our own un and under employed.

          Sorry, we cannot afford to be Mother Teresa especially now.

          •  What Makes You Legal, Alien? (0+ / 0-)

            This is a country of immigrants.  The "illegal aliens" have, in general, better claims to ancestry in the territory of the United States than most citizens.

            Once INS moved to start deporting undocumented Irish from Boston.  When an uproar ensued, they quickly went back to deporting the despised ones.

            American citizens have been deported.  INS says it's not their fault.  People have to prove they are citizens.  How many times have you had to prove you are a citizen?  

            What's the difference between you and the Latino that has to prove he/she is a citizen?

            Now you have your answer, alien.

            BTW immigrants have always been an economic boon to this country rather than otherwise.  They have often been exploited most cruelly.  Arizona is discovering what intelligent observers have known for a very long time if they are not imbued with the xenophobia that has threatened this country from before its founding.
