WASHINGTON — House conservatives criticized President Bush, accused the Senate of fouling the air, said prisoners rather than illegal farm workers should pick America's crops and denounced the use of Mexican flags by protesters Thursday in a vehement attack on legislation to liberalize U.S. immigration laws. "I say let the prisoners pick the fruits," said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California, one of more than a dozen Republicans who took turns condemning a Senate bill that offers an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants an opportunity for citizenship.

I say let the prisons pick the fruit AND let them and other illegals build the wall on the border. They can live in tent cities and put the famous pink underwear Arizona sheriff in charge.

When the Minutemen had a rally on the Capitol grounds early last month, Dana Rohrbacher and Tom Tancredo were the only two elected officials who cared enough to show up.

The problem is that Hasert is signaling that he's more than willing to literally give away the farm with the amnesty program. If the House caves on this issue, I'm done with the Republican Party on a national level.

The House is supposed to have balls. It's the House of Lords that is emasculated and has been for years.

Yet one more reason the 17th should be repealed so that once again states have a voice in something that so severely impacts them.

When the President calls Minutemen "vigilantes", you know something is seriously wrong with our government.

""The elite class in America is becoming a ruling class and they've made enough money by hiring cheap illegal labor that they think they also have some kind of a right to cheap servants to manicure their nails and their lawn, for example.
"

I like it when someone stands up to the countryclub Republicans. They wall themselves off from this mess in nice suburbs and gated communities. The rest of us have to live with it.

Haven't you heard the latest propaganda?


According to our resident FROBL's, he never said that.
