(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.

GOP Invertebrates


Word is leaking that the GOP in the Senate are on the verge of agreeing to an immigration bill that has --as a concession to the GOP-- less than half of the fencing promised by law last year. White flag time on the border, and a national security and thus a political disaster.

The GOP are sending around talking points attempting to make this "compromise" defensible, but it won't and shouldn't fly. Agreeing to it takes the party down the tubes on the issue of border security --because it doesn't provide what the public understands to be border security, a very long, very high fence with a very wide gate.

This is McCain's continuing gift to the GOP, and the immigration absolutists' legacy: Lots and lots of promises and no fence worth calling a fence.

Aren't there 41 GOP senators willing to fight for border security? Apparently not. And they will see the result in their depleted coffers and diminished numbers come November '08. All they have to do is fight for border security, but they won't even do that.

But wait, as if that isn't bad enough (roughly 48 hours before the Senate decides), the Santa Fe Police Department is considering the possibility of recruiting Mexican nationals to fill vacant police jobs.

How wonderful is that?

Let me see: first, the GOP appears to settle for HALF a fence because, after all, we wouldn't want to cause a stir and muddy the waters (of the Rio Grande, apparently) -- we wouldn't want people to DISLIKE us, after all -- and then a job, where years ago when I first hired on I had to swear an oath to defend the Fornicalia Constitution and the Constitution of the United States -- a job I thought meant something, is soon to mean NOTHING because just any old biped can bop on by and be a cop. Though they're not a citizen. Though they will still funnel money back to the Old Homestead. Though they have no inculcation in the country. No immersion. And no compulsion to integrate and assimilate.

And so: Santa Fe PD is going to hire LAW BREAKERS to ENFORCE LAWS.

And the GOP is going to knuckle under to "pressure" to "get along" and "play nicely" in the political sandbox because, after all, we can't call "illegal immgrants" ILLEGAL -- oh no, that might be harsh, judgmental, and THEY MIGHT LOSE A FEW VOTES. Like illegal Mexicans are gonna vote for your GOP ass anyway, eh?

Is this someone's idea of humor? Thank God my grandmother and grandfather are dead, for they would no more recognize this country than they would the schematic of an Athlon chip.

From RedState:

Immigration Deal Would Grant Amnesty to Parents, Spouses and Children
Kennedy Wins Major Concessions From Republicans

UPDATE: Six conservative senators are demanding that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) negotiate a “full and open debate” on the immigration legislation.

Senate Democrats and Republicans are working feverishly with the White House to put the finishing touches on an immigration proposal that could be announced later today or tomorrow. The deal would give illegal aliens living in the United States amnesty, according to confidential sources. It would also allow illegal aliens to bring their parents, spouses and children into the United States.

Multiple sources on Capitol Hill with knowledge of the proposal said Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.) has been able to extract significant concessions from Republicans. The critical part of the deal is a lengthy section that spells out the provisions related to “Z” visas -- or what my sources described as the “Amnesty Title” of the bill. The “Z” visas would be broken down into three categories as follows:

Z-1 -- Illegal alien present and working in the United States up to January 1, 2007
Z-2 -- Parents and spouses of illegal aliens qualifying under the Z-1 category
Z-3 -- Children of illegal aliens qualifying under the Z-1 category

We build a fence, we build it for 700 miles, we build it now.

Repeat after me:

  • We build a fence, we build it for 700 miles, we build it now.
  • We build a fence, we build it for 700 miles, we build it now.
Message to the GOP (and I repeat for those Invertebrates who "just tuned in"):

Invertebrates is right. These slimy bastards are selling out those that they are supposed to be representing. They should all be canned and made to get real jobs. Career politicians make me want to puke.

Prediction (boy, I'm really pulling this outta Left Field!):

The GOP will fold completely on this issue. Period.

I'm thinking it really IS time for a viable Third Party with an actual CONSERVATIVE candidate.

Are the border states suffering from heat stroke??? Life used to be so simple...disobey the laws, go to jail; in the country illegally, go deported.

BZ, please trust me on this one point that America does NOT want more than 2 political parties.

Deborah: then I ask: if we are not even remotely going to be served by the Democrats (and that's a given), and apparently we shall not be served by the GOP, whom is left? Who can we ask? What other venue exists? What other channel shall we use? Who is our Conservative candidate? Who shall or, better yet, who CAN represent us?

We USED to believe it was the GOP that could best represent Conservatives, but it is clear, after having placed what faith yet exists in the GOP party, that we shall NOT be served. When we were in power we did not use it; when we are out of power we are folding on most all issues.

I ask: whom is left? What are we left to do? We have been steamrollered not only by Ted Kennedy but by our very own President Bush, who thinks this "reform" is appropos.

It is FAR from appropos, FAR from acceptable.

For those trying uphold 'human rights': where the hell are MY rights to have a Nation with my fellow citizens free of outside interference?

Because that is the most basic of the 'classical liberal' rights and those trying to espouse anything *different* need to address that they have no basis doing so. I did NOT elect foreigners and companies to determine Immigration Policy for the Nation. Anyone purporting different on the Right or the Left can go to hell.

These illegals have not only violated National Law they have broken with the Treaty on the Universal Declaration of Human rights and the very Laws of Nations to uphold said Treaties within their Nations. There is ZERO in that for violating another Nation and that is, categorically, PROHIBITED by the Universal Declaration. That is a pure and absolute infringement on my Right to have a community and Nation separate from that of other Nations.

So where are the damned supporters for MY rights in this?

They seem to be invoking Despotism and Tyranny by saying others can break that.

Remember what I said some time ago about the trendlines for Iraq going up and those for the US going down? This is what I *mean* on that score. Strange we can help other People come together to stand up and protect themselves while we are willing to lay supine and *lose* our capacity for self-government.

I see a river in our future.

Not the Rio Grande.

The Rubicon.
