that lumbering beast is stirring again

DON'T HUMOR US AND FOR SURE DON'T PLAY YOUR LITTLE GAMES - WE SEE THROUGH YOU LIKE AN EMPTY GLASS

I love it when the radical elites among us have no rational response to the criticisms directed toward them. They pretend they don’t hear the criticisms and resort to the old, tired, tried and not-so-true attacks on their critics. Their opponents are ignorant, racist, sexist, hateful - they say … well, you know the drill. Look, I already had one lying politician wag his finger at me in my lifetime and I don’t take kindly to reprimand and condescension, especially when they’re not being straight with the people who put them into office. Hey! Ms. Feinstein! We’re NOT your children. You work for us.

The current uproar over the Illegal Alien Amnesty Law is a case in point. The bill was put together behind closed doors by a handful of Senators led by Edward Kennedy who has a long history in bad immigration policy. The Senate Majority Leader tried to rush it to a vote (even though the 300 plus page bill wasn’t even finished) and before any debate could be conducted. If you think the other 94 Senators who did not work on the bill actually read it, I’ve got some torn-up wetlands in Louisiana I’d like to sell you.

Through the internet and word-of-mouth, news spread quickly and people from all persuasions and political bents were justifiably outraged. They had reason too. 12-20 million illegals would be suddenly legal with a 24 hour background check supposedly to be put in place. The government doesn’t even know who these people are, do you think they’re capable of weeding out the bad guys and terrorists?

Some of the terrorists who were planning the Fort Dix attack (you may have missed that since the media didn’t think it a big deal and the New York Times buried the story on page 37) had been arrested 75 times with no red light going off. Feel safe? Maybe you should know that being a criminal, child molester, gang member does NOT disqualify any illegals from qualifying for amnesty. Oh … but this isn’t amnesty, they keep telling us.

Citizenship was to have been a key feature with illegals supposedly having to pay up to a $5000 fine, return to their country or origin to get back in line, OR simply stay indefinitely with Worker Cards and be entitled to health, education, welfare, and Social Security benefits. Do you really think they’d have to pay that fine even IF they decided to apply for citizenship? Or return to their country to get into line?

The bill promised to increase border security but they’ve promised that before too. There are so many “TRUST US” declarations that you’d have to have been born yesterday or completely mesmerized by the slick-talking snake-oil selling men and women who pass for representatives these days. Thank God there were enough people in both parties who told Harry Reid to take his vote for cloture and shove it. Debate something so serious and far-ranging, Reid admonished the Senate. Why, we can't have that! And so the bill was "temporarily" killed. And for good reasons.

But Dianne Feinstein, whose husband’s companies have made billions in military contracts while she was on the Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee without a whisper from the media that enables her, says the people who oppose this travesty of a bill are “anti-immigrant” hateful and racist.

The President is trying to breathe life back into the bill saying the status quo is not better than this bill which can be fixed. I’m against you on this one Mr. Bush. I’m firing off new e-mails to my Louisiana Senators and Representatives. Big Government is not what we put you into office for. Big Government's main purpose is to perpetuate itself and to slowly swallow everyone up into itself, creating a dependence from some, sucking the lifeblood out of others.

Big Government also proves daily that in most cases it can’t do anything right. You know that. It is a monstrous lumbering dinosaur and most of us don’t trust large animals of any kind in our backyard. Countries like Canada, France, The United Kingdom, Spain, etc. are learning that socialistic cradle-to-grave government is a failed concept that belongs buried in the last century.

The self-serving attitudes of certain politicians and political movements cannot be tolerated anymore. Our security and the integrity of this nation is at stake. Indeed the world. I’d hate to imagine a world dominated by these elitist snobs who are only interested in big government and control of you and me. Anyway, I ain’t going down without a fight.

There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him
When he's down
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
repeating the sound of the beat

The only way to curb the illegal immigration from Mexico is to have armed military on every inch of our border with orders to shoot on sight. It is not the fault of the US government that illiterate Mexican peasants cannot find work in Mexico. They should not have had so many children in the first place.

That is the difference between my ancestors and the illegal immigrants. It is not race, not religion, but literacy. My people knew how to read and write when they came here, and when they came here, not only were they so damned grateful to be here that they learned English and insisted on speaking English to their children, but they worked for themselves and were not a burden on any government.

There are a lot of very poor Americans here who need job training, health insurance, and other kinds of federal or state assistance, but do not qualify, even if they have been working their entire lives. It is not right that an illegal alien from any country, or even a legal alien who is not working legally, should be entitled to the same benefits as my parents or grandparents. They have to earn it.

Even if I decide to go to Israel, unless I am a true refugee of genocide, persecution, or pogroms, I will be asked a bazillion questions as to why I am entering the country and what can I offer their country. There is no such thing as a free lunch anywhere.

Well ... there are "free lunches" now in most developed countries but somebody else has to pay. The French, Canadians, etc. (as I mentioned) are getting tired of it. How many of those little French cars are the French ready to see flipped over and torched?

The people who support these programs like the Illegal Amnesty Bill, unfortunately, fail to see the ramifications of their actions. I'm tired of hearing them defend them in platitudes, sound bites, and tired cliches. You are right about other countries like Israel where security must be tight and laws actually enforced. Our officials are telling us WE have to follow the law but they CANT enforce them against people who have broken them to be here.

I disagree with you somewhat about patrolling the borders, although that has to be a first step. Btw, the politicians lied to us the last time about building a fence (it works in Israel) and increasing security. If it were not so easy to get work and benefits (a bank actually advertises that it will send money from illegals to their home country free of charge), illegals would not come nor stay. Temporary work visas have worked in the past. A crackdown on businesses who hire illegals and depend on the taxpayers for supplying "incentives" would help. Stopping the gravy train and securing the borders must come first. That gravy track is on a slippery slope.

We are not against immigration. We are against open borders which are a threat to security and a threat to the concept of what it means to be an American.
