AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 2251) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
Various News Sources and FReepers | May 22, 2007 | All of Us

Posted on 05/22/2007 4:24:18 AM PDT by Chairman_December_19th_Society

As we settle into the nighttime of despair, fret not, for the Sun will rise again!!

Good morning!!

We, here, will never forget those who died on September 11, 2001, as we seek to protect the Republic from all who will do her harm!!

Unfortunately, the latest non-amnesty amnesty bill made it passed the cloture hurdle and on to debate. This is truly a sad day for America. Crime, apparently, can pay if you wait long enough.

We must be taking lessons from the French--we appear ready to surrender to the invading illegals without firing a shot.

In that light, how about a common sense suggestion--instead of legislation that provides legal status to millions who don't even respect our laws, how about a Constitutional Amendment along the following lines:

Section 1: The provisions of this Constitution apply only to those people who were born in the sovereign territory of the United States, those who have entered the said territory through lawful means, or who are the children of those who were either born in the sovereign territory of the United States or who have entered the said territory through lawful means.

Section 2: All people who are citizens of the United States upon the enactment of this Amendment are considered to be in the United States through lawful means.

Section 3: The Congress has the authority to enact appropriate legislation to enforce this Amendment.

Section 4: This Amendment will enter into force provided that three-forths of the several states shall concur in such within seven years of passage by the Congress.

Just a thought...

For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.

Good morning to all.........sun shining and looks to be another beautiful day.

Molly, thanks for the articles......I read the one about the Democrats sending the President a no-time line war funding bill.......BUT I bet you won’t read about it in the news or the press will spin it as the Democrats doing what they need to do to support the troops. Anyone want to take that bet?

Have I told anyone ........... I hate the Press!!! (I don’t like using that word...HATE...but can’t help myself.

Good morning, the only reason the evil dems would even consider that is if they were getting something big that would promote their evil agenda’s.

Probably pass a bill to stop and prevent all border security or fences, give amnesty to aliens sneaking in illegally, allowing all the illegal aliens to be able to collect all “entitlements”without ever paying any taxes and hike taxes on LEGAL, made and born in the USA.

Welcome back and great links, Molly! I especially liked the Kagan one about winning, and Sowell’s “take” on the immigration debacle. I read on NRO’s Corner yesterday that we conservatives CAN make a difference by contacting our Congresscritters, by speaking out, and by resisting amnesty for lawbreakers.

I think the reason the immigration “deal” is so repugnant to conservatives is that it condones erosion of the laws of this country with the shallow excuse that it is “good for the economy”. Well, it can be argued that murdering old people or homeless people are “good for the economy”, too, but that doesn’t make them legal or right, and we don’t grant those criminals amnesty for their acts, which is what Sowell has been saying.

I just want a couple of our pubbie Congresscritters to have the courage to stand up and say: I was elected to uphold the laws of this great country, not to defeat them by destroying the fabric of the justice system. I oppose amnesty for criminals, whether they violate our immigration laws or any other laws in force. Every citizen in the US should want that we all play by the same rules and follow the same laws, and not exempt some people who disrespect our laws. (/wishful thinking)

Very well said, alwaysconservative.

We must fight for what is right...for our children and grandchildren's sake.

Doctors appointment this morning....when I get back, I will call my Congress critters.

Good morning, Chair, AC, all...

Great articles, Molly. Kagan’s is a keeper, for certain.

I’ll be in and out during this morning. Looks like spring is getting on toward summer here in W.NY... but we’ll probably have another one or two frosty days before June, as we did this morning.

GOOD A.M. CHAIR, ALL, FROM THE ‘GONNA RAIN’ MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST, USA!!!!

Folks, this country is in bad shape, being ‘sold out’ by the pubs, most anyhow. It has long been sold out by the dims but we expect that to happen, it is the pubs who are ‘plowing us under’, sad, sad, sad.....

SIL got the pool up and filled with water, it is a biggie too, having swimming party for the kids in crews from up north who are down here doing repairs on homes. Friday night we are going to have a shrimp boil for the crews and their kids.

I am afraid that folks in this nation still do not understand the radical Muslims want to do to us in America, or do not want to realize that they want to kill us or, don’t believe they will do such a thing. We are putting this dangerous situation in the hands of the dimwitts and thay think it will not happen here, so wrong.
I am not a radical at all but I do have my rifles and pistols in my ‘shack in the back’ to defend THIS family to the death. The threat is real, very real. Read John Haggee’s book ‘Jerusalem Countdown’, it will shake you to the bone.

Cut my yard with the tractor yesterday and then cut my neighbors and have two more ‘request’ to do same. I do not mind at all, in fact I enjoy it. I do this because they work and I don’t, and because I just want to.

I am asking ALL to pray for President Bush, this man is being attacked with no let up in sight. The hatred up there is sickening, a good man being assinated by words and works of hate.

It is off to do some cleaning and declare war on the flies, they seem to be coming from 7 states to attack us, it is terrible, never seen it like this. Havn’t seen the numbers of brown widow spiders as we are having either, before you turn or pick up anything outside you look first. Yep, out b lack widow spiders are plentiful too.

All pleas try to have a good and safe day and remember, someone always has it worse than us.

Toby

I like it, Chair. I would add one more section after Section 3, reading something like this:

Section 4: The Executive Branch shall have sole authority to enforce the legislative Provisions of this Amendment, as enacted by the Congress.

Then renumber your Section 4 to Section 5.

Good Morning. Hectic pace here today.

I’m working on the Memorial Day Speech I need to have ready by Friday, so I can get myself comfortable with it.

Unfortunately, there are frequent interuptions, which makes the project difficult.

Good afternoon ..............to all.

I am back from the doctor....all is well...just getting older (which is a good thing), the doc said my aches and pains were from too much gardening....and I agreed!!

Iowa Granny, I am sure you will do great in your Memorial Day speech.

gulfcoast, I miss the usual banter on this thread too, but it is close to summertime and most of us folks love gardening, so bet lots are outside enjoying themselves.

From “Peanut Envy” by Hitchens of Slate ... FR post: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1837217/posts I highly recommend giving them a rare click to read this article in full.

“[President Carter’s] combination of naivete and cynicism—from open-mouthed shock at Leonid Brezhnev’s occupation of Afghanistan to underhanded support for Saddam in his unsleeping campaign of megalomania—had terrible consequences that are with us still. It’s hardly an exaggeration to say that every administration since has had to deal with the chaotic legacy of Carter’s mind-boggling cowardice and incompetence.”

Awesome paragraph - accurately recalling for anybody who remembers the Carter administration (during which I was in the AF) why he was so BAD a president for this country’s history, and why he is widely acknowledged as the worst president ever. For anybody who does not recall his administration, or has no clue about why he’s considered the worst, that paragraph gives them a place to start their research - and the remainder of the article helps them flesh it out a bit.

Must read - must print - must show - and, by the way, this is the type of presidency we would witness if sKerry (or Ron Paul, I believe) were to be elected.

And at the same time, I understnad the reasons for those who've chosen not to.

Some of us have active accounts on more than one web site. I find FR much easier to navigate.

I am holding my breath as to how we’ll recover. We’ve recently lost a lot of good folk. One person I am truly worried about is JRAndom. He hasn’t been seen anywhere.

2/3rds, yes, logic. I loved the way Bennett interviewed Kyl yesterday a.m. It was very clear, and directed.

Jemian, I used ...some 4 years now...to have /john's address. I'm sure it's no longer the right one. I join you in concern.

Toby, that GW nonsense on TWC makes me gag! I avoid it too, but I love to watch the rest of the weather,& since I have so many dear ones scattered over the country, it's one odd way I stay in touch!

Well, my husband is home for an early supper, then he's going back to the office, and poor me, I get to watch the Indians play the Tigers!

And speaking of Kyl, and this "immigration" bill. It's my firm belief that he's played the good soldier to have some input...some commonsense input into this bill, even if a little. He may have to bail, tho, and he made it clear that his support wasn't automatic.

Jemian, Sessions has been superb on the matter. He's for making a stand, taking the matter to the people, making the strongest possible arguments for security and enforcement of our borders...for the Law.

Senators such as he need our help, so I'll be calling for you, since you can't!
