    Default GOP Chair Sends Email Boasting of Voter Caging

    Wrong, Daryl.
    You see another Republican is cocky enough to send out a letter BRAGGING about voter caging!! Since this guy can’t expand his own party or force his own Party’s members to support his candidates he’s shamelessly trying to keep Democrats from voting instead. This is the stratagem of a desperate and shrinking party.

    Kris Kobach, a former counsel to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft who is currently the chairman of the Kansas GOP, sent out an email on Thur entitled “Kansas Republican Party Year in Review” in which he brags of voter caging. Blue Tide Rising has the goods:

    In Sept McClatchy detailed current Republican voter caging efforts underway in Florida and Ohio to “impede Democratic-leaning minorities from voting in 2008,” and back in July PBS NOW took a look at the Republican Party’s voter caging plan “designed to keep Democrats from voting, allegedly by targeting people based on their race and ethnicity.”

    So Daryl, please refrain from posting about Dems getting their voting lists from cemetaries when your [beloved - can do no wrong] party just stops legitimate people from voting!!! If you had half a brain, it would piss you off because, one day, they'll cage voters who were going to vote for your Republican!

    Perhaps "caging" illegal aliens (his reference), andd keeping them from voting, working etc until such time as they immigrate legally, will trim your fangs...

    It isn't changing the subject to get back to the point. Trying to invey that it was some other devious plot on the part of the GOP is a cchange of subject, suverted for your own ends. Keep it honest. besides, I thought you were against illegal immigration, or are you just hewing more closely to the party lines talking points at election time?

    Since Daryl wants the subject to be ilegal immigrants...


    ...tell us Daryl, thumbs up or thumbs down on this one:

    Candidate for US Immigration -- Report and Recommendations

    Personal History
    Applicant was born in a small town in the northern part of Israel. Neither he nor his parents are Christian, nor are they citizens of Israel. When he was a baby, his parents spent some time as refugees, returning to the area later. The family seems quiet and sober. In his early teens he ran away from his parents and was lost for a few days. He showed no interest in his family's distress when he was finally found.

    Education and Job history
    He included no educational transcripts in his application. He is mostly or completely illiterate. Now in his early thirties, he is unemployed, though he may have worked in construction in the past. He lists no job references, and is unable or unwilling to account for his activities during the last ten years or so. His considerable ability as a lay-preacher seems to be his sole significant skill, but he has
    not been ordained or studied theology. Instead he preaches a mix of scriptural fragments and personal intuition.

    Current Family Status
    He is unmarried, and has no fixed address, no savings, and few possessions. He does not speak any English, nor has he tried to learn it. His current activity as an itinerant preacher pays no salary, nor does he seem to be interested in gainful employment. He appears to be supported in a haphazard manner by people who are impressed by his preaching. He usually travels with a group of supporters, men who are also unemployed.

    Criminal History
    He has had minor run-ins with the law, but these may indicate greater potential for trouble. He has a history of disruptive, irrational behaviour, especially in church, where on one occasion he attacked the staff. Charges were not laid in this incident. He has done "faith healing", has also stolen livestock and damaged crops and trees. He has shown no regret and has not apologized for any of these incidents. He is often found loitering in parks, but also spends a good deal of time in unpopulated areas. He sometimes goes without food for long periods, and reports vivid hallucinations and hearing voices during these fasts. He drinks alcohol in moderation. He has not been known to use any illicit or prescription drugs.

    Recommendations
    The applicant speaks no English, had an unstable upbringing, has no proof of formal job training or experience, has no financial resources, and shows no interest in fitting into the community or making amends for disruptive behavior. In our opinion, he is ill-suited for immigration to the USA — in fact, we have seldom seen
    anyone less well suited. Obviously he has nothing to offer America.
    Lifted from Noni Mausa.
