Sounds like terrorism to me. Might not be islamic, might not be bombs and beheadings, but it still sounds like terrorism.

Either do what these people want, or they’ll riot and hurt people and destroy property. Yup, that’s terrorism.

This statement reads as if Senator McCain is stepping up his campaign to win the nomination as the official Media candidate for the 2008 presidential election.

"I swear this man is just LOSIN’ IT."

Remember during one of his campaigns, he and his wife were up on the stage with Star Wars type light swords? I thought he had lost it back then. I'm beginning to think all of these politicians have lost it.

Wow. McCain’s warning us? Threatening us?

How in the world does he calculate this is going to help the situation? He implies right up front that these illegal aliens are a combustible group who cannot be trusted to refrain from rioting in the streets...AND YET- he wants them to become a permanent part of America.

WTH are he, and they, THINKING?

(A purely rhetorical question)

And your point, McPain, is?

Usually invasions are met with armed resistance except in America where we try to talk them into behaving....or give them all kinds of rights and exceptions to rules that even our own citizens don’t enjoy.

I hope that the American public will vote out those traitors in congress who are gutting this nation with “undocumented workers who do jobs Americans won’t do”!

Do they ever show any worry or any kind of concern one way or the other about us? Seems they worry a lot about them and show nothing but disdain for us.

They think of us every April 15th.

“There should be a riot alright, from everyone opposed to this amnesty crap.”

Ditto. Today’s headling: “opposition fading to immigration bill...” ... my first thought was “BS!” - I believe that’s just an out-and-out lie from the politicians, who are going to ramrod this thing through no matter WHAT the vast majority of the population wants.

Imagine 12-20 million tax evaders being protected by such reason?

Perhaps if they let the illegals in, 12 million of us ought to refuse to pay taxes. Based upon all of the pro-amnesty arguments, we’d all walk away scot free.

The difference between France and the US John is that thanks to the 2nd Amendment we don´t have to stand by and watch them burn cars, houses or businesses.

Should this bill pass the Senate we should be prepared to march on Washington and demonstrate our displeasure with their rule by Monarchy to bring some sense to the House and our wayward President. I do not want to see more foreign lawbreakers demanding entitlements and rights in this country.They show their faces again and they should be arrested and deported. How our lawmakers give in to those demands amazes me. Time for us to vacation in DC and reinvigorate ourselves with American History and be a part of it.

We have a written Constitution that should prevent us from having to demonstrate, but clearly our elected officals have abdicated their responsibility and have not enforced the law nor protected us from invasion. It is up to us to see that they do so. Time for removal of all politicians who broke their oath of office.

“[The purpose of a written constitution is] to bind up the several branches of government by certain laws, which, when they transgress, their acts shall become nullities; to render unnecessary an appeal to the people, or in other words a rebellion, on every infraction of their rights, on the peril that their acquiescence shall be construed into an intention to surrender those rights.”
— Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia [1782]

".....I don't want that in the suburbs of America.''

Trust me, John, ain't gonna happen "here in the suburbs of America."

Unlike France, we in the suburbs of America have the Second Amendment, have passed "Right to Carry" laws, and so far, have at least the propensity to dsiburse large, unruly crowds (unlike the civil servants in larger cities run by liberals) our citizens are "armed and dangerous."

Gangs of "youths" (aka Hispanic gangs who are pis**d off at being returned forcefully to Mexico) aren't going to turn our "suburbs" into a rubble of burned cars, smashed stores, and terrorized citizenry!

Is there some kind of mechanism where we can get McCain & these other idiot politicians (Bush included) out of office NOW? Clearly, they have stopped looking out for American’s interests. I feel like I’m living in a parallel universe all of a sudden!!!

Can you do it by petition? Seriously, did our forefathers give us an out if these dopes start trying to destroy our country? These guys gotta go!

'' McCain said. "They've got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can't even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don't want that in the suburbs of America."

IOW, they have a gun to our heads and we better do what they say.

We have lost the war to control our own borders and the legislation pending in Congress is the surrender document.

A lot of Mexicans marching in our streets last summer were carrying signs that glorified Osama Bin Laden. They are the enemy just as much as Al Queerda.

Too many people want to ignore this. The Mexicans are an enemy, make no mistake about it...

McInsane should be arrested for attempted blackmail on the American people......indicted, convicted and then sent to that tough prison where the offenders have to wear pink.

How "blackmail", you say?

This man has the power to incite riots through careless (actually deliberate) words and is twisted enough to use this power if the American public doesn't cave in to his blackmail demands to accept this bill.

The amnesty-supporting politicians from Bush on down are getting crazier with their words as they get more desperate.

Keep pounding away at them. Looks like resistance may NOT be futile.

McCain is, in effect, saying they’ll riot if we cut off their money. He is trying to SCARE us into supporting this abomination of a bill. Bush is trying to INSULT us into supporting it. What planet do these guys live on??? Have they forgotten that WE ARE THEIR BOSS?

They need to be fired immediately! Can we do that with a petition or something?
