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

Good News on Illegal Immigration, Maybe

One of the most beneficial things Congress can do is nothing. When it comes to illegal immigration this is what they are about to do. Their most recent effort to "reform" immigration failed because it became a typical boondoggle filled with vote buying schemes. Now with the election looming they are in too much of a hurry to get something done and we the citizens are the direct beneficiaries of their urgency.

U.S. congressional leaders are giving up on broad immigration legislation that would legalize millions of illegal immigrants and instead will concentrate on border security ahead of the elections, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said on Wednesday...

"Congress will put legislation on the president's desk this fall that will strengthen our borders," House Majority Leader John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, told reporters on Tuesday.

Frist's comments drew an angry response from Sen. Edward Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat who helped write the Senate bill.

An angry response from Sen. Kennedy is good enough for me. Let's hope that the border security bill they put forward will actually address border security and not be some spineless vehicle for pork spending.

Hastert has said Republican committee chairmen next week will propose new border security measures, possibly including voter identification cards and safer Social Security cards.

Proper voter ID is essential. The Dems natural constituency is the illegal, incarcerated and the interred.
