Power to the People

Today was a landmark day in the USA. This day, June 28th, 2007 should go down in history. Not because this is the day that the horrible immigration bill failed, but the day that congress was forced to bend to the will of the people. This was only a small victory, but a victory nonetheless. We the people should celebrate any victory over the government. In the past, congress has bent to the will of the people, but always some minority.

Where do we go from here? “We stay the course,” as President Bush is so fond of saying. Let's continue to use this new-found power and force the government to do the things the majority of the people want. We must make the government understand that the status-quo is not going to work. It's time the government enforce the laws it was sworn to keep.

Seals Dying

This was an article published in the Washington Post in 1922. The headline was "Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt."

I guess that speaks for itself, no need to say more.

Paris Law

We now know something we have all known for years, society is separated by class. The left seeks to separate us even more. Many times class-ism is looked at as racism. No doubt some of it is, but today something happened that defined class-ism.

Today, after three days, Paris Hilton was released from jail. The police department states the reasons are “medical”. News is slowly trickling out that she would not eat, and cried constantly. Now we know what it takes to get tossed out of jail and get house arrest in a cushy mansion. Of course, I doubt Charles Manson will ever get that sentence, and nor should he.

Federal Failure

Today was a good day in America. Congress worked together to come up with a new immigration law. Today that law failed to come to vote and was sent back to committee, where most go to die. This bill will reemerge, but at least this version is effectively dead. Those for the bill claimed that it had to pass this one or to continue the status quo of doing nothing.

Those of us that have opposed this bill do so for one reason, why pass more laws when no one wants to enforce the current ones. Once the current laws are enforced, there is true effort to build the 720 miles fence that congress has already approved, and then only can we look at changing the current laws.

No doubt we need to expand the quota of immigrant workers. I doubt anyone will argue that point. The Kennedy-McCain bill did provide for that. That bill had a lot of good points. There were also many bad points. There is no need for me to go over that bill verbatim.
