We've almost Won!

I know, I know ---- I can hear you all out there saying, "Enough already with the immigration stuff Rue!"

I apologize for being so monotone the last 8 weeks. It's just that this is an issue that I'm passionate about and, most of you are passionate about it too.

It seems that we're almost finished with all this, for now. The Open-Borders special interest groups took it on the chin today but there is another amendment vote tomorrow (Thursday) so keep sending those emails and keep calling. Durbin's office actually hung up on me today. Pinch me....I'm shocked.

I saw a quick snippet today by Mark Steyn and he sums up our government's attitude fairly well:

I agree with Stanley. There's something creepy about a political class so determined to impose a vast transformative bill cooked up backstage in metaphorically smoke-filled rooms on a nation that doesn't want it. It's an affront to republican government and quasi-European in its disdain for the citizenry. It's hard to imagine Senator Trenthorn Lotthorn as an EU Commissioner but his position on this immigration bill is basically the same as that of Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime Minister of Luxembourg and European "president", on the EU constitution. When asked what difference the referendum result in France would make, "President" Juncker replied:
If it’s a Yes, we will say ‘on we go’, and if it’s a No we will say ‘we continue’.
Same with the immigration bill. I think I say somewhere in my book that the first line of the European constitution is: "We the people agree to leave it to you the people who know better than the people." That suits the US Senate, too. They'll teach this one as a textbook definition of "bipartisanship": both parties gang up on the electorate. 


Laura Ingraham bitch slaps Allen Colmes and takes it to the hole on what we're all fighting for. Well done Miss Ingraham!

Semper fidelis!!!
