Weekend at Bernie’s III

by JohnHuang2

As a Documented American out of the shadows, it’s so wonderful to hear that the number of arrests at the border is going up! The only bummer being the arrested are Border Patrol Agents. Maybe they can get amnesty.

The pro-amnesty set love accusing Documented Americans who oppose amnesty for Forged-Documented Americans of using the word ‘amnesty’ to ‘distort’ the ‘debate’. The amnesty ninnies, like Johnny-one-notes, crank out the same ol’ lame ‘legalization-is-not-amnesty’ agitpoop no matter how slowly and gently you explain what the phrase ‘instant legalization’ means — amnesty.
Yet, mention any problem with our current “immigration system” and their default “solution” consists of giving amnesty to 20 million illegals first. Up to one-fifth of Mexico’s population has invaded the United States — amnesty will fix it. Massive backlog of LEGAL immigration applications — amnesty for the illegals. Over 4,000 people invade America every day from Mexico — amnesty. No employer sanctions for hiring illegals — amnesty. No border enforcement — amnesty. Not enough Border Patrol agents — amnesty. Fence not built yet — amnesty. No border — amnesty. Global warming — Quick! More amnesty!
Since they can’t raise taxes (over a veto) to screw up the booming economy and stock market, liberals fear they’re running out of poor, low-skilled, ill-educated people to vote for them, which is why they can’t wait to fill their voter rolls back up with millions of amnestied illegals becoming citizens.
Just a few weeks ago, liberals tried but failed to surrender to al-Qaeda, now they want to surrender to Mexican rule. Libbies love the idea of a “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian situation, so let me go on record as loving the idea of keeping a two-state solution to the U.S.-Mexico situation. Mexico and America — two states living side-by-side in peace, with Mexico not invading the U.S. anymore.
Now we hear that ‘key senators’ have agreed on a wonderful ‘plan’ to provide a quick $4.4 billion for “border security” in exchange for moving the “Immigration Reform” bill off that big slab of ice in the morgue and onto the Senate floor. Immigration expert Lindsey Graham said “The moment the presidential signing pen meets the paper these funds will be available.” The moment Lindsey starts talking like that, you know it’s the hot flashes again — something that afflicts women her age. So sad.


As part of the ‘deal’, Republicans get a chance to offer amendments and see them go down in flames.
So, lemme get this straight: Ted Kennedy’s ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ bill already had border security, didn’t have border security, now has border security, would’ve had border security except for the money, so $4.4 billion for “border security” will be paid for by millions of illegals who come here because they have no money but can be counted on to pony up billions because these lawbreakers will suddenly discover how great obeying the law is, and, don’t worry, just because we’ve always lied about border security doesn’t mean we’re lying again this time, and, don’t worry, the fence is roughly 1,600 miles too short but you get lights and cameras and high-tech gadgetry to watch the illegals invade and, besides, high-tech gadgetry costs more than simply building a fence. Give us guest worker/Z-visas/’path to citizenship’ and — cross-our-hearts, hope to die — we’ll give you existing law! And we promise to ‘enforce’ for real this time, just as we haven’t done for decades. And Islam is a Religion of Peace.
But, showing its serious commitment to border security, Congress last Friday rejected a proposal to build an 854-mile, double fence ‘mandated’ by Congress last fall. Surprise, surprise! The fence plan was voted down, 272-149, during debate on a bill liberals say will make America really safe again. To prevent any future fence-building, House Democrats passed more than a dozen new rules, like: Fence builders must “make every effort to minimize impacts on Wildlife and natural resources; the Secretary of Homeland Security must also consult with state and local authorities on fence construction; and the Department must submit to Congress a detailed report on each segment of fence or ‘tactical infrastructure’, this to explain the fence is or isn’t better to vehicle barriers or video monitoring,” (Special Report with Brit Hume, 6/18). For those of you wondering, this is what Comprehensive Fence Reform looks like. Over 1.4 million illegals sneak across the porous border from Mexico every year — no, you wouldn’t want a fence. The House bill calls for more Border Patrol agents so they can get arrested if they act like Border Patrol agents. As part of the agency’s recruiting effort, prosecutors are jailing agents. Jose Alonso Compean and Ignacio Ramos are in the pokey for violating the precious human rights of a Mexican drug-runner’s butt by shooting it. Meanwhile, 600,000 alien criminals have yet to be deported. Alien criminals murder 4,000 Americans per year, commit 25% of the rapes and other violent crimes. These must be the good, hard-working alien darlings we keep hearing about.
But if you’re looking for the story of ‘Immigration Reform’ in a nutshell, the ‘07 Mexican Amnesty bill epitomizes it. Every few years, Congress says, ‘the system is broken, needs to be fixed,’ then passes new Comprehensive Immigration Reform to reform the previous Comprehensive Reform that failed to reform the previous Comprehensive Reform that didn’t work.


In 1986 the ‘system was broken, needed to be fixed,’ so the pols rolled out the ‘86 Immigration Reform Act, or Amnesty Act, which promised tougher border security and workplace enforcement — both of which mysteriously failed to appear. Except for the amnesty part. One of the legislation’s biggest achievements was the ‘93 bombing of the World Trade Center. The operation’s head honcho, Mahmoud Abu Halima, came out of the shadows, got legalized as a seasonal farm worker under the act, which enabled him to travel overseas for a little ‘job training’ in places like Afghanistan, where he got trained to bomb the WTC.
Four years after the ‘86 Immigration Act, the ‘system was broken, needed to be fixed,’ so the pols rolled out the 1990 Immigration Act, which Amnestied another “160,000 spouses and minor children of aliens amnestied” under the ‘86 amnesty, (source: Numbersusa.com). Another 350,000 illegals “initially disqualified from the (1986 amnesty) because they had traveled abroad while in the U.S. illegally (now qualified) for amnesty under proposed settlements in lawsuits resulting after the 1986 amnesty,” according to Numbersusa.com.
Four years after the 1990 Immigration Act, the ‘system was broken, needed to be fixed,’ so the pols rolled out the Amnesty of 1994, designated to sunset in 1997, extended in 1997, followed by the 1997 Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA Amnesty), followed by the 1998 Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act (HRIFA Amnesty), followed by two more amnesties in 2000 (source: Numbersusa.com).
Now add to that heap the undead ‘07 Mexican Amnesty bill and the country’s on amnesty overload. Even if this corpse gets tossed to the House, all that awaits it there are embalming fluid and a burial. With polls showing the Senate bill pulling around 20%, pols flipping voters the bird or blowing them off with the usual yawn-o-rama boilerplate that the border can’t be sealed without amnesty and that we need more laws to ignore are wrapping the rope around their own necks. Sign on to amnesty and you’re doing the career dance of death if you’re in Congress from one of those marginal districts and even in run-of-the-mill ‘safe districts’ your long-term prospects could be up for grabs. Even pols trying to stay in the shadows on amnesty are finding out that ain’t the way to go either. Suits me!


And, from Pakistan, the wimpy, jelly-spined ‘Can’t-Secure-The-Border-Without-Z-Visas’ set just got another kick in the butt with that new video showing those cuddly little Muslim suicide bombers at their lovely graduation ceremony vowing to see off the West. Illegal immigration is a big deal because, six years on, 9/11 is still a big deal and whole phone book-sized ‘bipartisan’ “Comprehensive” reforms larded with amnesty poison pills won’t fit into Joe-Six-Pack’s rational version of the solution — i.e., seal the border, jail the bums hiring illegals — no matter how hard the A-list heavies pushing amnesty try to sell it.
Anyway, that’s...
Anyway, that's...
My two cents

The Lockhorns

READ: Proverbs 15:1-4

Out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. —Luke 6:45 Since 1968, the characters in the comic strip The Lockhorns have been exchanging barbs of bitter wit and marital contempt. Currently syndicated in more than 500 newspapers, the cartoon entertains millions of readers as Leroy says things like this to Loretta: “Sure we can talk now. Just don’t stand in front of the television.” Loretta, at no loss for words or jabs, is just as likely to say something like, “Sure I spend more than you make. I have confidence in you.”

While laughing, we might catch a glimpse of ourselves. Sarcasm is all too common, and far more serious than we might want to believe. Heartless sarcasm can be more harmful than physical bruises. Solomon said there are people who use words like a sword (Prov. 12:18), and that evil words can crush the spirit (15:4).

Controlling our speech isn’t easy, because the real problem is not our words but our hearts. Behind the insults, we are likely to find in ourselves an insecurity, fear, or guilt that tempts us to protect ourselves at the expense of another.

Is there an upside to abusive words? No, unless we take them as a warning that we’re not in step with Christ. In His embrace and grace, let’s not lash out at one another in an effort to protect ourselves.

Instead of hurling angry words
That wound and stir up strife,
Use words of kindness, filled with love,
That heal and nourish life. —Sper

Abusive language reveals a sinful heart.
