Ye Ole Tar and Feathering



Sons of Liberty resorted to tar & feathers
for loyalists. A medieval punishment used as early
as 1191 under Richard III on his crusade. British
troopers used it too. In1775, the soldiers of the
47th regiment tarred and feathered a peddler who
tried to buy their guns. The Rogue's March on fife
and drum accompanied the crowd. In this picture
an Excise or Customs officer is tarred.
The Stamp Act hangs upside down on the tree.


We may need to remind our elected who elected them and who they serve.

And remember . . .

Americans work underground in coal mines under threat of cave-ins and poison gas.

Americans work as garbage men, outdoors in all kinds of weather, each man lifting several tons of stinking, leaking garbage every day.

Americans work in sewers and Americans work hundreds of feet in the air walking steel beams.

There is no job Americans won't do

Well I can see that this thread is already being heavily moderated. Maybe we are in another country already. Why the ban on criticism of Bush on here? I voted and worked for his campaign for 2 years. He is screwing us today. Yet my comments are removed?

Garbage. The truth shall set us free.

At least effectively close the border, then a large number will eventually filter back to mexico.

If the border is effectively closed, Mexicans will be even less likely to leave the country, since they can't get back.

You KNOW for a fact that I am a long time supporter and poster here at FR. The title of the thread should have remained. My comments being removed were another slap in the face. Jim...you know damn well this is selling America out. President Bush should be called Senor Bush for his actions today and pandering and catering to Mexico. If ANYTHING I am being a true conservative here.

Why the pulling of titles and posts? C'mon...let us have some free speech here.

Oh how times have changed.

Ensuring Detention and Removal of Illegal Aliens:

The Administration is committed to removing those who have entered the country illegally and to detain criminal aliens. The budget funds INS detention and deportation staff and provides resources to remove criminal and illegal aliens swiftly. The 2002 Budget provides $89 million to support an additional 1,607 average daily detention bed spaces for a total level of more than 21,000 bed spaces. INS will continue to target its efforts primarily on removing deportable aliens held in Federal, State, and local facilities to ensure that these criminal aliens are not allowed back on the street. The budget also continues funding to fully implement detention standards to ensure those detained, particularly those who have pending asylum cases, are treated fairly.

This is one of those threads that may need to be forwarded to all elected in Washington, DC, so they will see the furor and animosity the illegals issue is causing.

Numbers from www.michaelsavage.com poll [I added commas and color for readability]:


SHOULD WE LEGALIZE ILLEGAL ALIENS?
YES (826,302) 7%
NO (10,525,120) 93%

11,351,422 total votes since 12/10/03

Eventually they would go home, it would take a few years but it is doable. All you need is the military to move on the border.

We all know this Rove election year 'proposal' is never going to make it through Congress.

My guess it that Rove got antsy at that Time Magazine Jan. 4 poll that had Bush up 52-46 among likely voters..(with a =/- 4% margin of error)

The live thread pings don't usually have "editorializations" in them, that's probably why.

Besides, this thread should discuss what Bush says; there are plenty of other threads where he is being bashed.
