Live Thread: Senate Amnesty Debate (CRITICAL 2ND CLOTURE VOTE TODAY!) Woo hoo!! It's DEAD!!
The U.S. Senate with Free Republic Input | June 28, 2007 | truthkeeper

Posted on 06/28/2007 6:25:57 AM PDT by truthkeeper

Here we are again my friends, hopefully for the last debate thread on this particular monstrous legislation. Proceedings are supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m. EST, with the cloture vote being taken at 10:30 a.m.

On a personal note, you've all been wonderful in your passion, vigilance, and commitment to the principles on which our country was founded. If I have to be in a foxhole, I want to be in it with you guys.

This is confusing. Sen Stevens said voting for cloture would allow the amendments to be considered, which would continue the debate.

Debate won't continue- Reid will remove the bill from consideration, effectively killing it. There are other bills the Senate needs to consider.

Does anyone know how we can jam their blackberries?

Is that a euphemism for something?


Ding, ding, ding. I think we have a winner!

Arlen Dumpster is asking senators to vote for cloture and then vote against the final bill. This was the tactic preferred by Jorge Bush’s gang in the WH.

Hopefully, senators know that the rest of us see through this nonsense.

Breaking news. NOT. Dingy Harry is speaking on the floor.

Silent Majority

Every Democrat I personally know is against this bill. Haitian immgrant, left wing feminist -- against amnesty. Christian teachers union member, against amnesty. Wealthy Jewish Democrat and mommy, against amnesty ("C" school -- Florida grading system -- two blocks from her multi-million dollar home ruined in part by kids that don't speak English). Etc. Etc.

You're probably right - could you elaborate? I probably should have mentioned that I also think that Bush's vision of an North American Union is behind this as well.

He said: vote FOR cloture then vote AGAINST the bill LATER!

I am referring to calls to credit card companies, stores, etc. You get an automatic menu of numbers to press for various things. It usually begins with whether you want English or not. And if you want English, you have to press “2”. I have been offended by that for some time.

Have you noticed how many restaurants, esp. McDonald’s, now have Spanish versions of everything? Where are the Asian versions?

Exactly. Why are asians, who actually create a lot of wealth in this country due to their dogged ambition and self reliance, be ignored.

Maybe you shouldn’t use the word “shot”. Someone might take you seriously.

On the other hand, Lord Spectre DOES look shot. Death warmed over.

No need to apologize.

Hi nic,

Welcome back.

I try to watch this mess but get gut sick now. Spectre on and I just have to leave the TV. He says that he knows that the majority of Americans are the silent majority and they are not the ones against the bill and that those speaking up are the minority. What an idiot.

Specter was born in Kansas but has been leeching (sorry, lawyering) in the hellhole of brotherly love since the mid-50’s.

The rest of the state generally dislikes him, and I doubt he will ever come out of his cubbyhole to visit again.

Liar and a bum (and those are his good qualities!)

Specter says that voting for cloture will allow the bill to be improved. LOL. The small band of “grand bargainers” bypassed the normal senate process, no committee hearings and no cost analysis, and drafted this abomination in secret. They have done everything possible to limit debate and the voices of those who oppose the bill. And now they want to pass a bill that only 26% of the American people support. Is this the US Senate or the Soviet Politburo?
