“Hm, well, is it time for ropes and lamp-posts?”


It was years ago! The ballot box is now useless and only the emergency escape tool described by Thomas Jefferson is of any value.

It can pass the House alright. All the democrats and 18 GOP traitors can get it passed.

It’s up to Boehner, whether he declares it DOA or allows it to be voted on.

Perceived political expediency trumped virtue, wisdom and tradition.

Keep the list of names in mind and make no mistake about it don't ever forget their calculated and egoistic choice. It reveals all we need to know about the nature of our ruling class where party affiliation ultimately matters little or not at all. And sadly foretells our disunited, fragmented future.

Dear Lord hear our prayer

May the law breakers receive no amnesty in the House of Representatives, who, if they are truly representative of Americans, will reject this reward for law breaking.

My Gov is Mark Dayton. He’s politically somewhere to the drug addled Left of Chuck U Schumer.

Can’t even count on the next election cycle as the Democrat-Farm-Labor mafia up here has a lock on the voting fraud.

Nobody anywhere - not only in the Senate but here on FR - has discussed the real problem: Muslim immigrants. Those are the only people who have attacked us (btw, none of them have come through Mexico, and most of them arrived here legally, permitted and even paid for by our very own government). There was no discussion of the suitability of Muslim immigration, despite the fact that Obama has not only taken away from legal Latin American immigration to give more slots to people from “Muslim countries” and brought hundreds of thousands of them here from various parts of the globe, but that he has repeatedly announced plans to expand this.

People on FR were so distracted by their (to me, completely inexplicable) hatred of Mexicans, who are declining as an immigrant group anyway because their country is doing better and most of them actually do not want to come here, that they missed the real issues.

But maybe that’s what they deserve. The problem is that the rest of us will be subject to it too.

Neither party cares about the border. The Reps want more guest workers and the Dems want amnesty and more legal immigration. The big loser is the American worker in the short term and the country in the long term.

The idea of passing this bill in the Senate is to put the House in the position of killing it...the MSM will scream that Republicans are racist...and should the GOP pass it...it splits the party.

Win-win for the Left.

My two Idaho senators voted NIET...and I’m a little surprised considering how much influence the agriculture industry has on Idaho politics...I was pretty certain Crapo would have supportted the bill. The dairy industry is very powerful in the state.

If their "guests" don't get to them first in a home invasion.

These days the politicians that push through traitorous acts such as this, rarely have to live with the consequences. They either exempt themselves from the act they push on us, or they have amassed enough kickback money to insulate themselves. The RINOs that voted 'Yea' today have sown the seeds of their own destruction, and good riddance!

Senator Hatch has always opposed the TEA Party. Guess he likes to “hatch” up new ways to tax us.

Observation: Middle of the road “Conservatives” eventually get run over.

Was Mark Levin a MOTR Conservative, or just a friend of a sharp-dressed RINO?

TEA sippers and Z-Z Top fans want to know!

TN votes white wise about like white Utah

Maybe even higher

But on statewide races for both Senate or governor

Multiple conservatives running split the vote with no runoff

And moderate waltzes thru

Its not reflective of the populace

Its a fluke engineered by a Rove style state GOP leadership

Northerners and Kali folks are flooding in for our prosperous economy and so far we are holding up unlike say NOVA or FL or NC

Our statehouse is maybe the nations most conservative

Belle Meade GOP elites can’t rig that

Notice Wicker voted YES for the Corker amendment but NO on the final cloture vote. Now when he can send one newsletter to the libs saying he voted for the Corker amendment, and a different one to conservatives saying he voted against the entire bill.
