    Studies say that there is a consensus that some are concerned that Obama may be an idiot.

    Remember that ‘journalism’ has evolved into making news vs reporting facts as news.

    A poll is a Prog’s way of telling you what you should think
    or passing along marching orders to the rest of the ants.
    You know … pheremones.
    (What? Yeah, or a dog whistle.)

    Polls are not news. Nothing happened. A poll not a vote unless everybody gets a vote and the vote is implemented. If it is an issue that could be voted on, and you get polling on it by politicians instead of a vote, it’s because the politicians are afraid that if they put it to an actual vote, people won’t vote as desired by the politician. And if the poll is published by some news organization, it’s because the news organization found an easy and lazy way to provide intellectual-looking wordfiller without actually being required to do any actual investigation and research.

    Member how some polls had Obama losing re-election?

    I don’t believe anything that come out of the “press” without at least 3 confirming sources that are NOT “news” outfits. They’re just making shit up now. Giving us a nice, sloppy tongue bath while our wallets are emptied.

    Led by Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, and Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, the eight lawmakers said they want to give all illegal immigrants instant legal status, to expand pathways for legal immigration and to enact more border security.

    The framework is close to the 2007 bill that collapsed after voters shut down the chamber’s switchboard with angry phone calls and 53 senators, including 15 Democrats and one independent, joined a filibuster…

    For the first time ever, there’s more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it.”

    No to Amnesty.

    That makes all laws irrelevant.

    Amnesty is genocidal to other Americans.

    Call your senator and representative.

    Senator Rubio, not a natural born citizen as Obama is not a natural born citizen, is a major FAIL on this.

    Will they legalize first and not implement the rest.
    They did that to President Reagan way back when.

    No to chain immigration. Only the person legally entered.

    And then there is still the radical Muslim situation. Ignore North Africa under Muslim Brotherhood (an ally of Hitler) control by the acts of Obama extending Islam.

    Number 6: I will not make any deals with you. I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own. I resign.

    I can’t believe that the Republicans think they can magically win over a significant share of the “Latino/Hispanic” votes by this new amnesty sham. I doubt they’ll be stupid enough not to see this a desperation move by Rubio, McCain and company. We’re about to add 12 to 24 million to our permanent welfare class.

    That was quite delightful, Merovign.
