      We have all heard the bromide, “if you can’t dazzle ‘em with
      brilliance…baffle ‘em with b.s.!” THAT is essentially what Congress
      and figuratively the antithesis of Progress) is doing on the immigration

      If ever anyone did the right thing for the wrong reasons it was Minority
      Leader Harry Reid. His torpedoing of the agreed to compromise
      legislation both sides agreed would have gotten between 60 to 70 votes
      was a product of mean spirited myopic pettiness. Nevertheless, the
      net/net of Reid’s obfuscation was a good thing.

      Cicero is reported to have observed, "A nation can survive its fools,
      and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within…He
      rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to
      undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that
      it can no longer resist."

      Aztlan dreamquesters preach out breeding the Anglos. They hope to win
      their objective not through force of arms, but through attrition
      and population density.

      Congressman Tom Tancredo said, “Today is a good day for America. The
      Senate ? in a rare moment of clarity ? rejected its amnesty-now,
      enforcement-later approach to immigration,”

      Whoa! It was good the bill didn’t slide through. However, this was not
      ‘a rare moment of clarity.’ Clarity would have eschewed the 300
      original amendments and even the 20 or so that survived. Clarity would
      have kept it simple.

      Politics and policy seem to function like oil and water. They are
      mutually exclusive constants.

      Both partisan factions are trying (and failing) to craft a compromise
      that will appease mutually exclusive agendas…and THAT dog ain’t
      gonna hunt.

      It is impossible to pander to the Hispanic majority AND base

      GOP wimps want to accommodate the unyielding in vain hopes of stroking

      In Act I of ‘As You Like It,’ Shakespeare has Rosalind say, “Treason is
      not inherited.” No, it is not, but the environment for it is inculcated
      with traditions and loyalties anathema to an oath of citizenship.

      Not all Hispanics want open borders, amnesty and get out of jail free
      cards for illegals. Yet neither the defenders of the indefensible nor
      gutless appeasers seem capable of recognizing the empirical evidence.

      Reprehensible elected officials who are anxious to violate their oaths
      of office to accommodate a perverted ethnic pride should be charged,
      tried and sentenced for their perfidy. Likewise their unintended
      co-conspirators should meet a similar fate.

      California seems to have a disproportionate number of hypocrite oath
      breaking elected officials (Anthony Villagarosa, Joe Baca, Art Torres
      et al).

      The key point the pols willingly and anxiously flee from is the legal
      point. The operative word here is “illegal”. The offending immigrants
      are not ‘undocumented’ they are ILLEGAL. They have broken the law to
      gain access to this country. ANY program, legislation, or finesse,
      which rewards those who have broken the law with the gift of legal U.S.
      citizenship, is flat out WRONG.

      Our borders are a dysfunctional disaster…and a danger zone offering easy
      infiltration to a wide variety of ‘bad guys.’

      No one knows how many illegals there are in our country. However,
      whether it is 9-million, 14-million or more, rewarding them or
      rationalizing their crimes is wrong.

      It was wrong when Reagan did it, and it is wrong as proposed by
      legislators and the administration. Amnesty was, is and shall always be
      WRONG. It is like the schoolteacher who wants to medicate an unruly
      student with psychotropic drugs…not to help the student but to
      make their job of class control easier.

      Those legal immigrants who suffered through the ponderous process to
      attain legal citizenship are not supporters of shake and bake
      amnesty. Venial politicians who support legalization of illegals are
      largely doing so to build a base, which they can exploit for perceived
      political gain.

      Tancredo said, “If the Senate is serious about sending real security
      legislation to the President’s desk this year, it must take a different
      approach.” However, he assumes facts not even close to being in
      evidence. The Senate is not serious about security legislation.

      They are serious only about getting elected and pandering to the
      perceived wants of a specific constituency.
