D.A. King who promised to ignore me, seems instead to have become fixated on yours truly. Should I be honored, threatened or just amused? I do appreciate the extra readers!

Let's take it from the top. Some weeks ago, I invited Mr. King to elevate the immigration debate and refrain from using a slur many Hispanic and Latinos find offensive to describe undocumented immigrants. I thought he might be a reasonable fellow, open to constructive criticism politely delivered. 

My bad.

Mr. King is a bully with a lot to say, but a man of scant substance. While he blusters on about the evils of undocumented immigrants, the parade is passing him by. America is moving on in search of reasonable and humane solutions to the immigration problem while Mr. King shrieks "stop!".

First, the Georgia State Legislature failed to pass SB 458 in its last session. Then the president announced some 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children may stay here legally. Finally, the Supreme Court struck down most of Arizona's draconian SB 1070 except the "show me your paper provisions" that so enrages Hispanics and Latinos.

Mr. King's approach has backfired big time with the political pay-off undeniably accruing to Democrats. The crucial Hispanic-Latino voting block, once solidly GOP until the anti-immigrant dead enders like Mr. King, Jan Brewer and Joe Arpiao shooed them off, now supports President Obama over Mitt Romney by wide margins.

Mr. King, you have my sympathies, sir. It must be terribly frustrating to see your crusade become irrelevant.

Kevin, On DA's latest blog, he is crying that no one at Cobb County Board of Commissioners is listening to him. They are not alone, I rarely listen to those who screaming at passing cars.

Foley, if you ever post anything worth responding to, I will seriously respond to it. However, I am still waiting for that time.

Your asinine and childish infatuation with yourself is a source of amusement to most adults.

You have the abiiity to express ideas well. Hopefully, one of these days, you will have an idea worth expressing. In the meantime, no matter how well you express rubbish, it still comes out rubbish.

Lib, when I see a serious response, I will usually respond. Mr. Adams isn't serious. He's a Rush/Hannity/Fox-inebriated serial spammer, posting silly responses that make him look juvenile and uninformed.

Lib in cobb, Since you and Kevin are the same person, it is natural to say that you knew each other at the instant of conception, "Both" of you were conceived at the same time, since there is really only one of you.

Devlin: No, not as far back as conception. It is impossible for embryos to know anyone because they are not yet people.

Yeah, Lib in Cobb, I'm sure you and Foley go back a long way, all the way to the instant of conception I am sure.

Illegal alien is a legal term, not a racial slur. Undocumented can be used for a dog withot a pedigree, but is a contrived term for someone in the U.S. without a legal basis. D.A. King may be a bully in some other area of his life, I can't say, but in his crusade against the organized crime of illegal immigration, he has had amazing self control. when Proposition 200 passed in Arizona several years ago, nearly half the Hispanic voters supported curbing ilegal residence in Arizona. They know the problems that come with their large numbers of their countrymen.

revxil (whoever you are) - I'd love to see your support for a statement like, "How does mass immigration benefit the US Citizenry beleaguered by high unemployment, stagnant wages and shrinking middle class? It doesn't."

So you're saying 11-12 million undocumented immigrants are to blame for the economy? That's beyond absurd.

We've had the Bush tax cuts in place for so-called "job creators" for more than a decade. The GOP runs the House of Representatives. Where are the jobs?

There you have it, folks.

Kevin Foley just told you he is happy that mass immigration sabotages the interests of US Citizens.

He figures that his party can politically profit from the last 25 years of government malfeasance and dereliction duty to enforce the borders.

How does mass immigration benefit the US Citizenry beleaguered by high unemployment, stagnant wages and shrinking middle class?

It doesn't.

But, it sure helps the 1% by keeping downward pressure on wages as the supply of labor far outweighs demand.

And, it benefits partisan media hacks like Kevin Foley who harbors malevolence against US Citizens.

@anonymous: BTW, I am not a new recruit of the Kevin Foley Gang of Thinkers. Kevin and I go back so far, I can't remember how far back we go. Kevin, please tell "anonymous" how far back we go. It's really an incredible story.

@Jake: Then why has none of this come up yet? There is an ample supply of constitutional lawyers in Washington, DC.

Oh Kevin, this may work at the local marxist meetings when you are the oldest left winger, but not here. You get your sily "call the illegal aliens 'undocumented workers' so as to not hurt their feelings" rebuffed with actual facts by DA and then call DA a racist and all of Cobb bigots - then you whine that King is a "bully" while you support amnesty and Obama tearing up the constitution. The constitution is important to most of us. I love it when you make up "facts" and then run with them. Just exactly when were Hispanics all in for the GOP Kevin?

Kevin. The last thing you should bring up is "substance". Oh and Kevin: Allen West is still a proud black American.hahahahahahaha

Let's get real about Obama's completely illegal new edict in which he declared amnesty. First, it was a violation of Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S, Constitution which declares naturalization to come under the authority of Congress. It was further a violation of USC 1225 which compels law enforcement to deport those illegal aliens (yeah, I said it) captured in the U.S. So, effectively, Obama is not only violating the law, he is commanding law enforcement agencies to follow suit. What makes this all even more laughable is that O appeared on Spanish language TV and declared that he could not unilaterally declare a DREAM Act amnesty, that the system just doesn't work that way.

Kev, this all may be tongue and cheek material for you now. However, take it from a native Los Anglean who has watched illegal aliens (yep, I said it again) virtually nuke L.A. When their numbers are sufficient in your neck of the woods, even "progressive" "thinkers" such as yourself will consider ways in which you may make them part company....with extreme prejudice.

Of course, before it gets that bad, you could do something novel like stand ?for the rule of law and against The Invasion of the U.S. Wild, huh

It is well known that the GOP and King are opposed to legislation such as The Dream Act. They are also opposed to decisions made by President Obama which would grant legal status to some 800,000 people who were brought here by their parents.

King and the GOP have been barking at the moon that the undocumented immigrants don't pay taxes. The Dream Act and President Obama's recent decisions are designed exactly with that in mind. The 800,000 people who would be impacted by The Dream Act would then become taxpayers.

Which way do they want it? When the GOP and King tire of being ignorant to a very logical and inexpensive idea, will then they switch gears to advancing the war on women?

If President Obama came out in favor of oxygen, the GOP would suffocate.
