Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Dead


The immigration bill is dead, after having failed its first vote on Thursday. And this just in: the bill has now failed its second vote. It will likely be pulled completely on Friday.

And yes, that is an actual photo of a portion of the US/Mexico border fence.

P.S.
Here's a little peek at our future: the number two most popular name for boys in the United Kingdom is now Mohammad. The number one name is Jack.

P.P.S.
Also, the US border fence was completely approved 6 months ago, for a 700 mile segment. Why have only three miles been built?

I'd take a picture of the fence between US/Canada ... but there ain't one. They do have three horse mounted border patrol agents that cover from the coast to Montana though.... oh ... and a Predator.

Damn these politicians that get elected make things worse and do nothing....

ABF: in any event, it sank; now's a perfect time to reassess, come to some sort of GOP consensus and write a bill with some damned TEETH in it!

Dear ABF: As a Canadian, I'm ashamed to say that Ottawa still relies on America to do anything and everything connected to border security. One only has to look at how that TB patient was allowed to leave the airport in Montreal, for the latest example of how it appears to be a non-issue to this government.

One of the weakest parts of the border is the middle of the St. Lawrence River. The natives, on both sides of the border, continue to claim sovereignty over the water and ferry anyone/anything across for the right price.

Thanks to the U.S. Air Force and NORAD our skies, at least, are well-patrolled, and the U.S. Navy assist with patrolling our coastlines. This Canadian is truly grateful for America's help, wherever it may be.

Deborah: your thanks are well appreciated.

LMC: yeah; ain't it kinda cool that we coalesced a bit for that one?

Now if we could only get the pandering SOB in the Oval Office to actually stem the flow...

He just lost a potential 12/18 million voters, and I seriously think the delusional MORON believed the wetbacks would get here and once he gave them citizenship, they'd vote Repub...

Oh well, he IS a dumbass...

But, the bill dying a hard cold death is a good thing...

You mustn't pay too much attention to scare stories in the Times of London. It is true that here in the UK the birthrate among Muslims is much higher than the average, but Muslims still account for only 3% of the population, so for some time to come it will be quite safe for you to come here: you probably won't meet one.
