Corruption, Igorance, Recklessness and Arrogance

Despite some well-known political pundits claiming that the CIRA (comprehensive immigration reform act) is a civilized and well-thought-through piece of legislation, I'm not convinced.

Neither is John Derbyshire over at National Review.

When, exactly, did the U.S. people ask for this huge burden to be placed on their local services & tax base?  When did we ask our lawmakers to open the nation's doors to tens of millions of low-skilled immigrants, paying low levels of tax, and making big demands on our welfare services?  When did we insist that people who have come into our country illegally, and stolen the Social Security numbers of citizens in order to get work, be eligible for Social Security benefits based on those stolen numbers?  (Yes, that is actually in CIRA.)  And that, just as the social security funding system is heading into major crisis?  When did we ask for legal immigration numbers to be tripled?   When?

John breaks it down - a must read.

This bill is just not good for us. It is an attempt at pandering to the hispanic vote in our country because, our PollCrazy politicians see that the demographics for hispanics is arching upward over the next 50 years. Allowing a flood of unskilled labor into our country is going to cost us billions more than what we're going to benefit. The unabashed lack of courage on the floor of the senate was appalling. The following lapdogs should be voted out of office :
Akaka (D-HI)

Bayh (D-IN)
Bennett (R-UT)
Biden (D-DE)
Bingaman (D-NM)

While these senatorial bombasts hobnob at cocktail parties and swagger around in their elitist circles, Joe Workingstiff is getting the congressional Soapy Finger prostate exam. The WH hired Tony Snow as press secretary in order to try to placate the Republican rank and file. But, with Snow likening illegal immigration to a speeding ticket, the festering rage among conservatives is anything but abated.

Call or write your House congressional representative and let them know that you want no part of the Senate bill.

* Bean, Melissa L., Illinois, 8th
* Biggert, Judy, Illinois, 13th

* Davis, Danny K., Illinois, 7th
* Emanuel, Rahm, Illinois, 5th
* Evans, Lane, Illinois, 17th

* Rush, Bobby L., Illinois, 1st
* Schakowsky, Jan, Illinois, 9th

It is surreal, almost Daliesque, to see how little our government leaders actually listen to its constituents.

The Senate members enjoy a six-year protection from voter’s wrath and that makes them far less responsive to what the voters want. That does not do much for representative government. House members on the other hand are elected to two-year terms and can get bounced before the voters have time to forget their misdeeds.

We have a huge problem with turncoats holding office in both houses. I can’t understand why we can’t get rid of a lot these traitors for the simple violation of their oath of office

I wish there was a way to hold their act accountable. I also wish it could happen prior to an election. This bill has changed names many times but we know 2 major key player's are Kennedy and McClain. Read they were laughing their as$es off about it. Kennedy voiced over any senator that tried to reason for the American. Neo-Libral Commies comes to mind.

Are you aware of the high number of jobs that are being currently outsourced to other countries. One thing is sure they sent the right message to the criminal, lawbreaker, special enhanced rewards. Free, Free for all.

The Eagle took flight to parts unknown with head hung in shame.

Obama and Durbin need red cardboard dognuts sent to them in mass numbers with the words. This American Say's No Thank You! Since they keep a tradition in WASHINGTON of free coffee and dognut's for regular sit-down chat's with American Constitu's. Hey idiots were here in Ill. not in Washington. Obama voted against English as the National Lang. he couldn't make up his mind if the choice should be between two American Indian Tribes and this guy is looking at a run for Pres. like McClain! God help us all!
