    …..Thereby judiciously avoiding the electoral firing squad awaiting traitors.

    I think we should wait before snatching away their last cigarettes………

    Three cheers for the Party of Obstructionism. At one time didn’t Republicans want to do away with the filibuster? Lucky for them they didn’t follow through.

    ToddH,

    The GOP never wanted to “do away with the filibuster.” The GOP considered changing Senate Rules to prohibit filibuster of Judicial Nominees (which may have been unconstitutional anyway).

    Now, if we could only get them to oppose bring it back to the floor at all. They need to not only NOT SUPPORT it, they need to PUBLICLY OPPOSE it.

    I want to see them share what they have learned from their citizen constituency, and stand up beside Sen. Sessions and LEAD!

    Patriot,

    What you propose is anathema to their Commander and Chief and he will twist the ring he has through Saxby’s nose.

    I don’t know the details of this bill, but I just want to confirm with its opponents:

    You would rather the status quo continue for at least 2 or more years, more likely 4 or more years, than have this bill?

    I’m not trying to be argumentative, I’m just curious.

    bird,

    Why are those the only options? Why can’t I expect something better? One of the very few things that the feds should do is protect the borders. Is it too much to ask that they at least attempt to do that correctly?

  8. Rogue109 says:

    No, Bird…I don’t want the “status quo.” I want the laws already on the books to be enforced. Only then will I be open to considering amnesty. Otherwise, we’ll be back here again in a decade for the ninth time since 1986.

    We operate from a theory that if we just clamp down on the “border” and stop people from entering that everything will be OK. OK fine.

    But what about the 12 million who are already here, don’t we want to know who they are, why they are here?

    What about an even larger problem of the millions of illegal immigrants who enter the country legally, but overstay their visas? Shutting down the border will have no impact on that, either.

    “What about an even larger problem of the millions of illegal immigrants who enter the country legally, but overstay their visas?”

    Tax all wire transfers of money to Mexico and other nations with high populations of their citizens living here illegally at a rate of 50%.

    You want to see illegal immigration dry up quickly?

    Wow, for our two critters to commit to a “nay” vote on cloture this early in the game must mean that the fix is already in.

    Guess that means it’s time to get on the horn early and often to Jim Marshall.

    “I’m taking my ball and going home!”

    Hooray for getting nothing more passed and allowing more into the country, more to take jobs, more to defraud the health system, more to send kids to schools, etc. Be prepared to cover these costs even more now since nothing is being done.

    I hope the fence is built tomorrow. That way when more illegals either pay corrupt guards or even tunnel through, people will then have to face reality that something more has to be done. The news yesterday even showed a point in Laredo, TX where this fence was already built. The fence had a gate that was unmanned and unlocked. The reporter just pushed open the gate and walked right through.
