"What in the WORLD is McCain thinking???"

Don't know, but he spent whatever political capital he had left. I expect more Manchurian Candidates will be getting their phone calls. I wouldn't attempt to guess who will pop up next. The landscape is changing too fast to get a handle on the enemy's game plan, but it is certain they are well down field and getting ready to punt any day now.

In essence, this is what Senator McCain really said(paraphrased), “We cannot enforce our laws. We cannot control lawbreakers. Therefore, we should give in to them and let them have what they want so they won’t cause problems for us.”

Simply unbelievable.

Perhaps if McCain became President, he could sign a decree to setup Chicano Law in Aztlán, the same way the Danelaw was imposed on the Anglo-Saxons a thousand years ago.

Just to keep the peace he could then create the Sharia Law for enclaves of Muslims to hold them over until the birth rate will allow them to declare Dhimmitude for the rest of us. /s___

They wouldn't need McCain at that point. Ruh-roh! Relp!

I never, in my younger or adult life thought or dreamt I’d ever see the day when the POTUS and a bunch of U.S. Senators would sell the country down the river in a freakin’ heartbeat.

To say I’m stunned beyond belief is putting it mildly. To say I’m outraged is an understatement.

Now that’s the best idea you have had all day.

What if someday somebody brings together a million people...these million then denounce their citizenship and become illegal aliens...they then take over the government. It would be PC to stop them.

"Biggest fear I ever had in my life was that we would really need a revolution, and I would be too damned old to see the sights on my rifle, that has about come to pass,"

I really didn't expect things would get this bad this quickly. Six months ago I figured, not in my lifetime. Now all bets are off.

It won't surprise any day now to hear the gummint openly proclaim on nightly news:

___________________________________________

'Your "great experiment" has failed. Your next great experiment is now in progress and you will be furnished a new set of rules and regulations as soon as the burial parties have cleared the roads.

'You will have twenty-four hours to report to your nearest post office to turn in your weapons and receive your official I.D. cards and 'authority to travel' papers.

'There is an immediate need for 225,000 volunteers to begin construction of our new highway system. Volunteers will receive extra food rations and a clothing allowance which will include two pair of cheap shoes provided by our trade partners across the Pacific.'
________________________________________________

Know what you mean about the kids. Don't forget to pass on the video, "Red Dawn."

I can't guess how this is all going to play out. At this point I'm too flabbergasted to think clearly. Tomorrow, perhaps. I'm hopeful that our military will choose the right path when the SHTF.

It's been a real bummer of a week. :(

I'm in agreement with those here who think McCain's dumb statement will be taken as an invitation to the illegals and terrorists to speed up their plans.

FRegards, -- Dave

I support this President on just about everything but not this illegal immigration amnesty.

As for McCain, never liked him, never trusted him.

I always believed, thought, knew that Ted Kennedy was a sell out to American ideals and anyone who sided with him was the same. I always knew he was a murderer that got away with it but to have members of our party actually side with him on anything, astounds me.

I’m praying, and prayer does help, that this amnesty bill doesn’t pass.

Far too many of our elected officials cater to lobbies and eveyone but the american working people. And far too many of our people are clueless about any of this.

We’re either going to be a Socialist nation or an Islam nation in the near future unless the heart of this country stops it. That probably makes me a hatemonger or islamophobe in the eyes of most America, those too clueless to see what’s not only possible but actually coming. I never believed the masses were as stupid as portrayed but I’m starting to believe they are.

“I really didn’t expect things would get this bad this quickly”.


Please don’t take this wrong!

I’ve alienated a lot of “friends” over the years, trashed a 26 year marriage, and ended up damn near a hermit, simply by speaking out, and scaring people. Last thing you want to do, to be popular, is point out unpleasant things.
Most folks know something isn’t right, but as long as beer is cheap and sex comes easy, they can keep the boogieman in a little compartment, and almost forget about him. I reckon I never had any compartments in my brain. This has been coming on for decades.

I have taken a no-French-bashing pledge, since the French did the right thing by electing Sarkozy.

What McPain inadvertently pointed out was that the french have lost control BECAUSE they allowed too many immigrants with no french traditions. Also, the french lost their nerve.

Strange, isn’t it, how the RINOs & neo-cons warn us that the American people won’t stand for deporting illegal aliens (AKA: enforcing our immigration laws) but every time ICE does one of its (`catch & release’) PR employer raids, and always before some amnesty `trial-balloon’, the American public enthusiastically supports the effort?

Riots in the streets are what we're eventually going to end up with anyway, if this current Balkanization of America continues on at the pace it's been going for the last 15-20 years.

And frankly you ought to be ashamed of yourself for suggesting something like this McCain, you crazy old man.

Dittos on nudging folks out of their comfort zones. Not very rewarding, but definitely necessary. I'd rather be sailing too, but duty calls. Who knows but perhaps an off-handed quip at the right time and right place may have changed the course of history for the better. Or at least slowed down the race's pace towards self-annihilation.

Persevere.

My problem is I just don't when to shut up. ;>

Wow, John McCain says we’ll have riots — presumably angry illegals — if we don’t give Mexico everything they want — and Obama says we’ll have ‘quiet riots’ — presumably angry blacks. (Or sulky Big Easy residents, not happy with their lot in life, not enough govt. money.) McCain’s candidacy is dead. Obama’s is losing steam, and doubtless neither knows why. Hint: No voter takes kindly to being threatened.

Rewarding illegals simply leads to more threats the next time they demand something. Why should they pay attention to the rule of law when marching around yelling threats gets them what they want? McCain has lost his mind.

I am no fan of McCain’s but he is stating the obvious, what does anyone think those mass illegal marches across the US were really about?

There may well be riots if we don't pass immigration "reform". But if that is true, then riots are likely inevitable no matter what we do; the longer we wait before working to remove the invaders, the worse the riots will be when they do occur.

Thus, even if McCain is right in a small part of his statement (riots may occur), he's absolutely wrong in the conclusion he draws.
