C-Span has some replay coverage right now...
I didn't know if you had seen this particular AP article yet. I have not.
I'm so sick of the media and their usage of the labels "anti-immigrant," "anti-immigration" and "pro-immigrant."
I did not hear anyone on the Minuteman side utter any charges of racism against the counter demonstrators.
Perhaps this "reporter" has a need to portray moral equivalence.
Don't be fooled, Bush is only using the National Guard to get amnesty passed.
I'm so sick of these turds and their foolish quotes that I could puke.
"It's absolutely imperative to get amnesty for immigrants who come here. Without it, we wouldn't have the industries and economy the way we have."
Yep, the United States was an economic basket case, filled with nothing but wastrels unwilling to lift a finger, until illegal aliens crashed the border en masse, in a fit of mass altruism. /sarc
Proposals to put the Guard on the border could have been made at any time during the past six years. Why now?
You answered it.
I saw steve eichler on abc evening news.
This guy looked and sounded like Howard Dean only from the right wing.
This is not a good thing.
There should have been more supporters there with the Minutemen! What a shame, as we all sit here and complain!
"not a good thing"
I agree. As someone on FOX put it, he needs to have his medications adjusted.
You bet! They are protesting because they may lose their free ride. There are plenty volunteers to escort the bums out of here.
The American people should hold President Bush's feet to the fire.
We have laws that apply to every American citizen, we have laws that apply to everyone entering America.
There should be no confusion as to how to handle the illegal issue, just apply the laws that apply to this situation of illegals, plain, but not simple.
Follow the laws!!!!
President Bush says there is no way we can deport 12 million people. It is just can't be done.
LOL :) good one!
Bump to you two! They really have contempt for our intelligence. November will tell us if we are a paper tiger country or fighters. I prefer the latter.
Ted is great : )
