I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Senate Vote Shelves Immigration Bill

Just like clockwork the Senate had to table the immigration amnesty bill because the supporters could not block attempts to amend the legislation. The usual accusations are being thrown about, but the important thing is at this time amnesty is a dead horse.

Democrats and Republicans blamed each other for the stalemate.

"It's not gone forward because there's a political advantage for Democrats not to have an immigration bill," said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa.

He said Democrats perceive a benefit in having only a GOP-written House bill that criminalizes being an illegal immigrant. That bill has prompted massive protests across the country, including a march by 500,000 people in Los Angeles last month.

Democrats blamed Republicans for insisting on amendments that would weaken a compromise that Senate leaders in both parties had celebrated Thursday.

The American people are not fooled by this nonsense. The loss of this bill gives a break of about three weeks to twist the ears of Senators. A recent Fox News/ Opinion Dynamics poll reported 80% of the American people what the border to be secured and employers fined. They are willing to put the military on the border if necessary. The common argument on coming from the supporters of amnesty is we can't round up 11 million people. The reality is we don't have to. If we dry up the sources of benefits for coming here illegally such as employment, schooling and the miscellaneous government giveaways, then the illegals will leave on their own.
