My country doesn’t understand me.
Whether you’re a liberal or a conservative, this bill should make you suspicious. It was negotiated behind closed doors for 3 months by George Bush and Ted Kennedy. Regardless of your political viewpoint, I know you don’t agree with both of those guys. Nobody can.
The Senate is poised to grant ammnesty to 12 million illegal aliens. If your house was on fire, would you be rebuilding while it was still burning? No, of course not. You’d put the fire out first. If your house was flooding, would you be trying to lay down new carpet? Of course not, there’s still water pouring into your house.
If illegal aliens were streaming into your country because of free schooling, free health care, and free government services, would you grant them amnesty and eventual citizenship in an effort to stop the problem? Or is it possible that free U.S. citizenship might be an incentive to come here illegally?
The bill promises that maybe someday we’ll have a secure border. Sort of like last year’s bill that promised us a fence. Before we do anything about the existing illegal aliens, don’t you think it makes sense to stop the problem from reoccurring first?
CONGRESS: SECURE OUR BORDERS *FIRST!*
What’s funny about this so far is who’s for and against the bill the first day –
Democrats for it:
Democrats against it:
Sweeney (AL-CIO President)
Republicans for it:
Republicans against it:
Straddling the Fence:
Oddly enough, Mexicans oppose the plan, too.

Perhaps we should embrace this with both arms, vote a straight socialist ticket and get it over with. Perhaps the crackup will not take so long as the Soviet Union’s did.
Perhaps it’s time to reboot the system.
Democracy should again take hold in 150 years or so.
As the Chinese say, we may be living in interesting times.
It’s almost as though Democracy is unstable. It eventually disintegrates into socialism or anarchy.
A regular Alexis d’Toqueville you are.
Perhaps herein lies the problem:
Charles Alexis Henri ClÃ©rel de Tocqueville – â€œChristianity is the companion of liberty in all its conflicts, the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its claims.â€
As CLP oft cites: The Devil is happy.
Every time I think I had a new thought, somebody had the same thought, maybe centuries earlier.
CLP is perceptive.
