Franklin Delano Roosevelt During the Great Depression of the 1930s, Roosevelt created the New Deal to provide relief for the unemployed, recovery of the economy, and reform of the economic system. His most famous legacies include the Social Security system and the regulation of Wall Street. His aggressive use of an active federal government reenergized the Democratic party.

Regardless of what the speakers at the Immigrations Reform rally say or do on Wednesday, the Dumocrat legislature is going to ram a more liberal agenda concerning the illegals down the throats of Oregonians, Teddy will sign it (guaranteeing more votes for the Dumocrats in the future), and there will be no liberal knothead judge to overturn it.

Right on Scottiebill! Start learning Spainish, soon to be the only Oregon state language acceptable within the state governmental departments.

One of the Bills is for ENLGISH IMMERSION in Schools with S/K as a Test pilot Program, and Dr. Rosalie Porter helped with this with over 25 years directly in this work.
I am gald that I had some input with this as this has been one of my priorities and something ALL Politicians can get behind because it is what is best for the Children.

Ballot Initative for English Immersion is also going to be at the Rally as another group is working on that with us as well and there will be enough signers to put on 2008 Ballot.
They can do the right thing now or wait until they have NO choice and voters will remember who did nothing when they had a chance.

THANK YOU to Daniel and all others, OUR voices are being heard, changes are coming that we want. Never give up, it's easy when doing the right thing.

I'm guessing that the majority of the folks who are opposed to illegal immigration probably will be at work on a friday early-afternoon... so here's a thought... Why don't they schedule a rally where people can actually come without re-arranging their whole lives!

Rick Hickey said...

Chris, I understand as the legislators set this up. They want it on a weekday when reps are in the building. We have had rally's on Saturdays also.
We did suggest the lunch hour so some in the area could stop by.

We understand that only Illegal aliens can get a paid day off to Rally.

Most important is how many call/contact legislators afterwards too ask them to vote yes on new laws.

Anybody that tells the people of America 14 million individual determinations can be made after they register within six months is crazy, especially when the criteria will be decided later.

We can't process the much smaller numbers now. It's a recipe for a cattle call, blanket amnesty.

Rep. Tom Tancredo told party activists Saturday at the Victorian Opera Company that Republicans lost control of the House and the Senate because they did not live up to Republican Party principals.

Tancredo, R-Colo., hasn't announced a run for the presidency,

One principle is to enforce the law.

And Republicans in the House did pass the fence, but now others are saying it can't be built.

Major commentaters that give an impression of being tough, are rolling over to amnesty without the guts to admit it.

Defacto amnesty is what they want to sell.

O'Reilly is a sell out.

I heard Bill O'Reilly today.
Out of one side of his mouth he was scolding anybody to buy land and live there, and out of the other side say the North American Union was a good thing. We can't trust them to live there and he wants America marrying up with Mexico via the North American union.

That movement of labor was part of it and so herecomes the tidal wave.

Tancredo has formed an exploratory committee and handed over reigns of immigration reform caucus in consideration of running for Pres.

O'Reilly has always supported a "Guest" worker program, proving that he doesn't really understand the impact or is a big biz sell out.

remember people, for over 6 years there has been talk of amnesty, it still ain't happening, 'cause we will fire 'em if they do it.

To 1150,
I appreciate your calm certainty.
I hope it is well placed; however the Democrats control Congress and with Bush in The White House there is a real chance that an amnesty bil could become law, unless vigilance, pressure, and education are constantly applied.

Committed Presidential leadership is essencial to solving the illegal alien crisis.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R,Cal.), former Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who authored the fence law is the strongest presidential candidate on illegal immigration who can win the Presidency.

Bill O'Reilly's proposal is a lot more than some "guest worker" program. 14 million "legalized" aliens all getting a idividual determination "hearing" is amnesty by another name.

How many would get citizenship?

My bet is 10 milion and possibly millions more if 17 or 18 million are already here and hundreds of thousands cross the border take advantage of the "leglization".

It would take a long time to get all those hearings done. All that time means that the open borders, amnesty crowd would put the fix in.

The political pressure to grant some form of a pathway to citizenship would be huge.

so,

10 million plus is a number I equate to amnesty.

Why does it matter? O'Reilly has been making sound and fury about illegal immigration then comes up with amnesty.

Just shows that many powerful people will sell out for amnesty and then swear it's not amnesty.

Watch out for the sell outs.
