Her parents must be so proud.
While the rest of the country is struggling with a real unemployment rate of +16%, the unending attacks on working class Americans in the forms of Obamacare’s coming tax hikes in 2013 and beyond and Obama issuing an unconstitutional Executive Order allowing illegal immigrants to steal American jobs by granting amnesty in the form of deferred deportation passports, I’m sure we, as Texans can all be proud of state representative Mary Gonzalez’s latest announcement that she’s decided that she is gender neutral or “pansexual” or something.
Get out of our congress, you self-servicing, pubicity-hound. Why in the world would you wait until AFTER the election to announce your self-proclaimed androgynous perversions unless you were aware of the repulsiveness of your lifestyle to the people you supposedly represent?
What, exactly, do you mean by “better” or “families,” for that matter? Does “it” think that announcing the choice to be perverse in some way actually improves the family unit? I’d like to see the study on that. Wait, don’t get any ideas. We don’t need government wasting more money we don’t have funding another useless report on such reprehensible activities.
Christian News Network reports:
Mary Gonzales, 28, who was believed to be the first openly lesbian state representative, befuddled many when she divulged the information in a recent interview with the Dallas Voice. Gonzales stated that she is not only “sexually-oriented” to both men and women, but also transgendered men and women. She explained that a pansexual is a person who does not believe in a “gender binary,” because “gender identity isn’t the defining part of my attraction.”
Gonzales said she kept the term in the closet while she ran for office and rather allowed people to classify her as a lesbian, but after beating out two challengers in the primaries and currently finding herself running unopposed by any Republican challengers, she wanted to clarify the matter.
Normally, I would not care what your activities are behind closed doors, but you, dear lady(?), since you are in position of legislative authority and have used your platform to proclaim and promote your lascivious lifestyle, force my hand to expose the activist use of your office for what it was not designed.
You have also assisted in exposing the democratic party as the association of reprobates they are. Thank you. I think.
I hope the people of El Paso remember your dishonesty and misuse of your office when it comes time for re-election.
Without defended borders, a country is nothing more than a lawless continent.
Oh, right. Just what Obama wants.
There are several new illegal immigration bills submitted by Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle and other conservatives that deserve our attention and support.
If the federal government continues to turn a blind eye to the issue, and they give every indication that they will do just that, it is left to the states to deal with. Rep. Riddle and her conservative colleagues have made the first steps, but we must encourage the entire body of lawmakers to finish the job.
One bill would require employers to verify the legal immigration status of their employees.
Another pair, HB22 would require schools to request the immigration status of each student enrolled in a Texas public school, and HB21 would require state agencies (including school districts) to calculate the cost of services to persons here illegally.
Find your Texas State Representatives and urge them to support these bills.
Peter Morrison has written an article concerning HB22 and one of it’s detractors:
The Peter Morrison Report:
Texans Deserve to Know the True Cost of Illegal Immigration
Summary of this week’s report:
Texans sent a message last November when we went to the polls, and it was loud and clear: we want real conservatives who will take a strong stand on the issues we care about. One of our biggest concerns is illegal immigration, which is overwhelming our state. Unfortunately it seems that Rep. Rob Eissler, chairman of the House Public Education Committee, has already turned his back on our concerns. He is opposed to a bill that would require public schools to check the immigration status of their students. This is not what we voted for in November. Please send a free fax to let Rob Eissler know we’re not going to put up with it.
Last November, voters went to the polls across Texas and America and sent an unmistakable message: we’ve had enough of “me too” Republicans, and we want leaders who will do more than just mouth platitudes that sound good. We want Republicans who will fight for conservative causes and principles, instead of caving in and kowtowing to liberals at the first sign of opposition. Some of our senators and representatives in Austin have let us know that they received the message loud and clear, and they’re going to work hard on behalf of the issues we care about, and there are indications that this session won’t just be business as usual. Unfortunately, others seem to have completely forgotten the conservative revolution of last November.
Rep. Debbie Riddle (R-Houston) has proposed a bill that would require all public schools to check the immigration status of all their students. This is a very sensible first step toward getting a handle on the huge illegal immigration problem in Texas. As it stands now, there are no reliable figures as to just how widespread the problem is. If Debbie Riddle’s bill becomes law, at least we would finally be able to measure just how much it costs us every year to educate the children of illegals in our public schools. This is exactly the sort of leadership conservative Texans demanded
Unfortunately it seems that not all the Republicans in Austin got the message. One of them, Rep. Rob Eissler (R-The Woodlands) is Chairman of the House Public Education Committee. Recently he gave an interview to the Texas Tribune in which he was asked about Rep. Riddle’s bill. His response to the question should anger every conservative in Texas. At first he tried to avoid answering the question. Then, not only did he say he opposes the bill, calling it a mandate, he did so in a very condescending and offensive manner. He gave the distinct impression that he wants nothing to do with those of us who are concerned about illegal immigration, and won’t be doing anything to stop it.
Rep. Eissler pointed out that under Supreme Court rulings, public schools in America have no choice but to educate the children of illegals. Under current law, that is true, but Eissler is misconstruing the point of the bill. There is nothing in it which would order or allow schools to refuse admittance to the children of illegal aliens. It would simply require them to verify citizenship status, just as they already tabulate many other statistics, such as how many children are below the poverty line, what race children are, etc. Collecting one more bit of information would hardly constitute a burden on public schools.
It seems likely that there is more to Eissler’s opposition than the fact that this bill would be an inexpensive mandate. Not only does he appear to be opposed to efforts to rein in illegal immigration, he also appears to want to use the very fact that schools are being swamped by illegals as an excuse to raise spending on public education. In January 2010, a Houston Chronicle article discussed the fact that around 60% of students in Texas public schools are considered “disadvantaged”, because they come from a low income family, or they don’t speak English well, or both. Obviously, this problem has been made much worse by illegal immigrants, many of whose children fall into one or both categories. The Chronicle quoted Eissler, who said the answer is spending more tax dollars to hire teachers with “more qualifications” in our public schools: “You have more and more kids that are less prepared to do well in
school. Where the expense comes in, you need teachers that have more qualifications. Maybe we need more and better professional development for our teachers.” It’s hard to understand “teachers that have more qualifications” in this context as anything other than “bilingual” teachers. Eissler admitted that his idea would mean spending more money on public schools, which would also, quite conveniently, give him even more power as Chairman of the House
Public Education Committee.
Rob Eissler’s opposition to the Riddle bill is an outrage, and we cannot allow it to pass unopposed. For far too long we’ve put up with being betrayed by RINOs and phony conservatives, and it has to stop. Liberals don’t betray their base and start voting along conservative lines when they win office. No, leftists are playing to win, and they unashamedly represent the people who put them in power. Just this past week, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who famously said that she thinks a “wise Latina” would make a better judge than a white male, spoke to a group of students at the University of Chicago law school, and she made it clear she’s strongly committed to racial quotas and other preferences. She knows who made her what she is today, and she intends to use her power to advance their agenda. Meanwhile, on our side, we’re regularly betrayed by RINO after RINO.
Conservative Texans want leaders who will fight for what we believe in, while there’s still time to make a difference. California is probably past the point of no return when it comes to being destroyed by illegal immigration, but Texas isn’t that far behind. We must act now, or we will face the same fate that California now faces, a future as a third world state. We can’t let that happen here. We need to inundate Rep. Eissler’s office with faxes and phone calls and insist that he support Debbie Riddle’s bill. We need to let him know that we’re fed up with being betrayed by the leadership in Austin when it comes to illegal immigration. He needs to decide whose team he’s on. If he’s on our team, then he’d
better start acting like it. If he’s not, and he’d rather win praise from Democrats and the media for being “open minded” and “tolerant,” then we’ll solve the problem once and for all in the 2012 primaries.
Call or fax Rep. Rob Eissler and insist that he start voting like a conservative when it comes to illegal immigration, beginning with Rep. Riddle’s bill to require public schools to verify the immigration status of all students. Tell him he needs to start opposing illegal immigration, or we’ll find someone who will in 2012.

I hope everyone has called or faxed or emailed their Senators to urge them to oppose the DREAM Act, which just yesterday passed the House of Representatives and heads to the Senate today, and the Forced Unionization bill now under debate, soon to be voted on in both houses of Congress.
As I told my Senator yesterday evening in a short email, it would be better to have these issues and other such major legislation discussed after the newly elected congress is installed. In fact, I think any Lame Duck congress should be limited to legislation which deals with funding the military or the operation of our government only.
Of course, the Democraps currently seated donâ€™t see it that way. They think since they are on the way out, why waste the opportunity to whack you once or twice more with additional laws weâ€™ll have to fight for repeal of, thus enabling, in the case of the DREAM nightmare, further painting of anyone against the DREAM Act as racist and against the poor starving under-privileged immigrants who are here lawfully (only once the amnesty bill passes). They know that once a law is in place it will be almost impossible to repeal, especially after 2 years of implementation. The same holds true for the misleadingly named â€œPublic Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act.â€ The TEA Party Republicans will have a lot on their plate to repeal in 2013. Do we need, or can we stand to pile more on that already heaping shingle? I think not.
Republicans have a lousy track record when it comes to repealing bad legislation. In fact, I canâ€™t think of very many times it has happened. Republicans by their nature are less active in dealing with repeal of bad laws. Most will just learn to live with it or in the case of the RINOâ€™s (read Progressive Republicans) be active in the enactment of such laws.
TEA Partiers, Americans, our job did not finish with this election. We just got started. We must be ever vigilant over this monster of a government that wishes US to be more and more like the failed model of Europe. If you love your country and would like to see her returned to her former glory as the beacon of freedom to the world, join with the rest your sane neighbors and call your Senators and Congresmen to oppose these destructive bills.
Congress.org has a list of who represents you.
That is all.
Another conservative lady comes to Arizona’s defense, and by doing so, America’s as well. Ruth McClung isÂ a physicist who is concerned about the direction of our country, not a career politician, concerned with lining their pockets.
…I cannot stand on the sidelines when politicians in Washington (like my opponent) are grabbing control of our personal freedoms, wrecking our economy, recklessly spending our money, and destroying America’s greatness. We need to return to limited government, personal responsibility and integrity, a strong work ethic, and opportunity for all. The American dream is to be self reliant and work to achieve the life that you want, not live off the government.
As a nation, we face many complex challenges requiring innovative solutions. My technical knowledge and expertise in scientific problem solving will be valuable in solving these problems. I will take strong, decisive stands on border security and immigration, curbing out-of-control government debt, and promoting job creation through a free market economy. I am committed to limiting our government and defending our Constitution. Working as a physicist, I understand the importance of finding the right solution instead of causing new problems. Maybe it does take a rocket scientist.
