no illegal immigration bashing here.

In fact today is GREAT news about Pres Bush!

check this article out as well, posted at Drudge today 6/1/07, "Bush in U-turn on global warming"

I believe he plans to invite Gore to the Whitehouse for a joint press conference.

Bush Sr. may add Gore to the Bush/Clinton Tour '08.

RIGHT ON! Unemployment rate steady, 157,000 jobs added. Unless the “birth rate” permits the babies to grow up real quick, it says to me we have 157,000 “new citizens” just in from Mexico.

BTW for those who think we bash Bush, the opposite is true - Jobs Americans don’t want to do, Vigilantes, Bigots etc. The fool is trashing US (and U.S)the base that turned the party around.

Perhaps you need to read Peggy Noonan. Ref: http://www.opinionjournal.com/columnists/pnoonan/

The European Union has argued for calculating emissions limits by agreeing to a goal of preventing a temperature rise of more than 2 degrees Celsius. But Mr Bush made no mention of tying emissions curbs to a specific temperature goal.

Robin Oakley, of Greenpeace, said Mr Bush’s gambit was “a classic spoiler” ahead of the G8, “designed to kick this issue into the long grass until he leaves office”.

This is no U Turn....it's not much of anything on Bush's part. No carbon trading, no government intervention, including India and China in any agreement, no blaming people for the global warming.....bwahahahha

I hired three new employees since April. All Americans! An African American (can’t I say black anymore?), Hispanic (third generation American) and a slightly disabled Caucasian.

Do I get some kind of brownie point for unintentional diversity?

;D!

The illegal aliens come here to work in order to supplement the income of their single mother girlfriends who are all on welfare with their anchor babies.

Of course if you did an INS sweep about 120,000 of those new employees would be deported.

I already commented on this piece of crap by Peggy Noonan and also commented on this supposed U-turn on Global Warming by President Bush. It is was not a U-turn or anything like that. It is better that we write the standards for gas emissions than have the rest of the world dictate it on us as in Kyoto, I guess with the Bush hatred on this forum people cannot even see this simple fact.

Easy answer.

The welfare queen will make more money if she does not work. There is no incentive for her to go to work let alone keep her legs closed.

I have a sinking feeling that after the bill is killed the immigration threads will slow down, you won't hear a peep from all these people and the borders will remain wide open for several more years.

Exactly!.....We should go back to the days of Commodity Assistance, pre-JFK. When only food was distributed from government larders, Flour, powdered milk, powdered eggs, peanut butter, cheese, canned meats and dried vegetables........no money, no EBT cards, no way to get money for drugs, beer, cigs or HDTV's.........

All threads lead to illegal immigration, just like all threads led to Terry Schiavo, and Elian Gonzalez before that . . . .

And the DemoSocialists want to undo all this economic progress by increasing taxes and increasing government interference with free-market capitalism. The Congressional Democrats are socialists and traitors - all of them.

It's ridiculous that the people in this country can't come up with a solution for the sake of our national security.

They think Homeland Security can just put up a fence and it won't be torn down...not by the Mexicans but by our own people!

Well, I'm done with the immigration threads friend. Going out to stock up on more amo, put a wall up around my house and invest in some security cameras. See ya.

Hoover Alert

I wonder why liberals keep balming Hoover for the great depression when FDR's big government policies were just as bad and even more disastrous than Hoover's.

FDR's economic policies LENGTHENED the Great Depression for another 7 years.

President Bush could announce he’s sending troops into Mexico and these Buchannonite assimilation trolls will complain - even though they’re the ones always calling for Bush to invade.

They conveniently never b*tched about illegals while Clinton was in office and it was just as bad then, no matter WHAT they say.

Not sure what you mean by "focused." If you are suggesting that turning a discussion of the latest (un)employment report into a discussion of illegal immigration is an example of "focused," then what does "unfocused" mean?

You may not be able to escape the truth, but first you must put forth the effort to find it.

The report is on non-farm payrolls. As summer comes, service sector and construction jobs increase.

Here is Houston the unemployment rate is 3.8% but for some odd reason the Katrina "evacuees" cannot find work. Unemployment is still a problem for Katrina evacuees in Houston yet there are 59,000 jobs in Houston that only require a high school diploma.

Unemployment still problem for Katrina evacuees

No matter how good the economy is it does not seem to effect Bush’s favorable poll numbers, nor the public’s low perception of the strength of the economy.

I totally agree, I think its a very moderate stance on Global Warming. Much too moderate for the vast majority of Enviroweenies, who are complaining today that its not nearly enough, yadda, yadda.

This whole notion that Conservativism HAS TO be Anti-GW is, frankly, stupid.
