[After Shirl Mora James presents Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, she will hop on the Latina FREEDOM RIDE for Immigrants to Birmingham, Alabama -- then to Tampa, Florida, to protest the GOP Convention.]
The Tea Party Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio is upset with Tequila Party protesting him at his Catholic Church.
He thinks we went too far, but we didn’t. The corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio is clearly upset in this youtube video below and you can see how angry and tired he looks. Arpaio thinks the Tequila Party movement has gone too far with protesting him at the Catholic Church.
Here is our response to Sheriff Joe Arpaio … followed by the video of him complaining of our Tequila Party protest which can be seen around the 2 minute and 30 second mark.
Dear Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
Dear Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
We have not gone too far, in fact, we have done too little. I’m not certain the extent of your religious knowledge and what YOU have learned at your Church, but this I do know … My people are dying in YOUR jails.
I have personally heard you crack jokes about the mysterious deaths in your prison at a Republican meeting when I was still a member of the GOP. I left the GOP for good because of Republicans like yourself. Recall to your memory a Latino veteran of the Armed Forces who unjustly died in your jail.
For you to expect Latina women (who were born right here in the good old U.S.A) to turn a blind eye to the killings that are taking place in your jail is something we cannot and will not do.
Even though I do not attend your church, what I do know is that at one point Jesus went into the temple, threw out everyone who was selling and buying in the temple, and overturned the moneychangers’ tables and the chairs of those who sold doves.
Why did Jesus do that? Was there perversion taking place in a place of worship?
You and your ilk have made money via the private prison industry like CCA. You have benefited from the inhumane incarceration and deaths of my people. While Christ was upset with money changing at the temple, we are upset that our people are dying in YOUR jail.
We have been LEGAL and we have been exercising our freedom of expression with regard to the hatred we see taking place in Arizona that spread throughout our Nation because of politicians like you who felt it was in your best interest to demonize human beings.
Indeed we know what the Pope’s stance is on immigration, which is why we have chosen the path we are on. Again, people are dying in your jail. We will continue to protest you and we will continue to shine the light and shout from the mountain tops how you (a Catholic) are helping to make the Catholic religion look bad.
It is my understanding your background is of Italian descent lest you forget how Italian immigrants came to the United States without papers, too.
My people are indigenous to this land, and many of us are citizens of the United States, and have fought for this country since its inception. I earned my right as a Veteran of the US Armed Forces and I intend on exercising my Freedom of Expression to the fullest in order to shine the light on your inhumane approach to fellow man. And before you start accusing me of being a Democrat liberal, make no mistake: I am an Independent registered voter of Arizona who supports independent candidate Mike Stauffer for Sheriff who appears to be a good Catholic … because I happen to also believe that the Democratic opponent via Paul Penzone is just as evil as you are when I learned his wife told the Glendale Police Department that he shoved her into a doorway that caused her a head injury.

Smashing Pumpkins eloquently wrote: “Today is the greatest day I’ve ever known…”
Today is DAY ONE for DREAMErs (DREAM Act youth and children) that may apply for Deferred Action under these guidelines.
What does this translate to?
It equates to approximately 1.7 million acts of compassion offered to our youth.
According to the BLOOMBERG, “President Barack Obama’s move to stop deportations of many undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children may benefit as many as 1.7 million people age 30 and under, according to estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center.”
First we thank our Creator for allowing love and compassion to dominate, but we also want to thank President Obama, because we know this was not
Life is useless without love and compassion to fellow man and human beings.
easy to do within his first term as President of the United States. Both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush did not address immigration until their second term as President, and to this day we see Tea Party Republicans who loathe Reagan’s amnesty.
Make no mistake, there is still plenty of work as we work towards a humane legal immigration system that everybody agrees is broken. Indeed we do need to fix the broken immigration system and create a legal avenue, however, bigotry is stopping those efforts. In addition to the bigotry, we see misguided undocumented individuals protesting pro-DREAM Act Democratic Senators like Bill Nelson. In my view, DREAMers ought to be protesting those who are on the record of not supporting the DREAM, and while many of the undocumented are unable to vote, those of us who were born in the United States and are eligible to vote will support those compassionate Senators in droves.
1. We don’t attack allies.
2. In a representative democracy you have to change the minds of the population because the representative is gonna be taken out if you don’t change the minds of the population or the people (public perception) within that district. If we don’t change the population mind….we are never gonna win anything. It is fruitless to attack our allies. You attack the positions of the opposition.
Now … make no mistake … you are going to hear a different tune played by the obstructionist Tea Party people as they would rather choose to rule with the iron fist. Ironically enough, these same Tea Party people who ‘claim’ to be for small government are in support of millions and millions of dollars in foreign aid and war. In addition to the cool Billion$ we give in foreign aid, we see Republican Mitt Romney wanting to spike our defense spending by $2.1 trillion. According to CNN Money, “….compared to the Pentagon’s current budget, Romney’s plan would lead to $2.1 trillion in additional spending over the next ten years, according to an analysis conducted by Travis Sharp, a budget expert at the Center for a New American Security.”
Now let’s imagine for a moment a situation where there are no starving children in our own country?
Why are people hurting in our own country? Why do we see the hungry in our land of the free?
Shouldn’t we harness those taxpayer dollars, tell the foreign countries that we need to pause in giving them financial aid for at least a year until we get ourselves out of the rut?
What about the military defense budget? Republicans love war even though they claim to be Christian compassionate types, but why can’t we slash the military defense budget for at least one year? Aircraft fuel and bombs are expensive so why can’t we put that on hold until we help ourselves out for a year?
War mongering doesn’t make sense right now.
The Tea Party Republicans and the war mongers who don’t want to help our elderly and our own here in the United States have blood on their teeth and would rather spend billions of dollars and trillions in war than to help our own.
In my view there should never be ONE child living in the United States that should go to bed hungry.
Imagine for a moment the trillion$ we spend on war and foreign aid and applying that money to Americans for a year.
Do the math.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 311,591,917 people living in the United States and with the trillions we spend in foreign aid combined with war, imagine a lot of relief that would be given to our own here in the United States.
Yes, you read that right.Paul Ryan thinks the beliefs of roughly a quarter or better of the people in this country is essentially the same as a vile and insidious disease.
One of Mr. Ryan’s supposed benefits to the Romney ticket is his genial and affable nature, his common everyman touch. Well, as revealed tonight on The Ed Show, Mr. Congeniality considers progressivism to be “a cancer.” As originally reported way back on April 12, 2010 by Media Matters, Ryan joined Glenn Beck on his radio show to discuss the issues of the day. During their chat, Ryan expressed his desire “to indict the entire vision of progressivism.” Okay, not my bag of shit, but fine.
Then it gets hairy. Upon hearing Ryan’s vision of those that believe differently than he, Mr. Beck then refers to progressivism as “a cancer.” Alright, whatever. What does anyone expect from Glenn Beck anyway? He’s not exactly a paragon of the moderate tone. However, what happens next is pretty incredible…Ryan agrees. “Exactly,” he says. Okay, in my most generous of hearts, I can kind of see someone agreeing with the host of a very popular radio show of which they are guesting on and slipping up with that response as a sort of…I don’t know, strange politeness? So, let’s be that generous and give Ryan a pass–not really, but for the sake of argument. But wait, there’s more! As they continue their discussion, Ryan goes on to say some of the usual pap about the founders and Austrian philosophy like a good Randian disciple. Then he doubles down on the Beck statement with this comment: “…this really is a cancer.”
How the hell should any decent person feel about that? Forget progressives and liberals, who should be boiling mad, I’m talking about anyone who simply cares for the concept of diversity in our democracy. I’m talking about anyone who believes that another person has a right to believe something different from they and still be a decent human being, let alone an American. …….(Continue reading here )

Wow. So much for the so-called pro lifers on the Republican side.
What makes an outsider think he knows the situation on the border? Did he forget about how the minute men vigilantes have killed children and women in our State of Arizona?
Shame on Arizona State Sen. Lori Klein, Wurzelbacher who applauded Klein’s stance on shooting our neighbors. Anyone know which church she attends?
For Immediate Release

Arizona based National Group Blasts Tea Party Joe Plumber for Violent Remarks Against Neighbor
Phoenix, AZ — The National Tequila Party Movement is blasting Tea Party candidate Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher for suggesting vigilante shooting with our neighbors in Mexico.
In light of the Batman movie shootings, the SikhTemple Shootings and the recent Texas A & M shootings, we believe this is hardly the time to suggest more gun violence and vigilante behavior. The Culture of Violence the Tea Party gun advocates bring are dangerous to our Country. In fact, those of us who live in border states like Arizona remember how Minutemen were instrumental in the murder of Brisenia Flores, a young child who died in the presence of her own mother. The Tequila Party cannot and will not support fear-mongers. The hate climate against Latinos has increased and swept our nation due to bigotry.
Joe the Plumber is a disgrace to his Republican Party, and we intend on communicating to independent registered voters across the nation how violence is not the answer in keeping the United States ‘united.’
This is insane. Then the Republican Party wonders why Latinos are leaving the GOP in droves.
Latinos are oh too familiar with Arizona politicians who use the term “wetback” loosely when the ousted Senator Russell Pearce welcome Operation Wetback. Back when I was a Republican (I left the Party for good and registered as an Independent voter) I personally told Pearce that the term “Wetback” is derogatory. See that video here, where you can hear Pearce say that this is not a demeaning term but a great “operation”.
Wow. Then the Republican Party wonders why Latinos leave their party for good. The rhetoric is repulsive.
Now we see more Republicans/Conservatives using this term as if it is not offensive. Recently, a writer for the National Review Online via Jay Nordlinger used a derogatory slur against Latinos.
“Truth is, some conservatives lamented that he [Reagan] had indeed ‘grown’ in office. He had gone out of his way to accommodate liberals and moderates, and to accommodate the Kremlin. He was raising taxes, spending like crazy, welcoming wetbacks, pursuing arms control. One common cry from the right was, ‘None of this would be happening if Ronald Reagan were alive.’ “
I think it is safe for all of us to say that the Republican Party can no longer call themselves the “Big Tent” Party. Simply put: Nordlinger is a bigot.
In fact, let’s just call it what it really is when it comes to the bigotry-filled Tea Party members who have become obstructionists at everything the current administration stands for. They really can’t handle a half-white and half-African American President can they? Their hatred has consumed them and this is unfortunate.
Ah yes, how I do miss the days of Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neil days. How we wish we can go back to bipartisanship. It’s no wonder why more and more Americans are leaving both parties and switching their affiliation to the independent one.
As an Independent registered voter, I can assure you that I would rather have 4 more years of ObamaCare than 8 years of RomneyCare!
The GOP is dead.
