    Yes, I just an email stating that.

    Did you see where it will raise the number of foreign workers by three times the current number of 66,000.

    Lawn care workers, timber workers, construction workers, maid, housekeepers an stable workers.
    All these have a high unemployment, from 11% on down.
    Both of my senators voted for it.

    According to Fair
    Sen Larry Craig's Ag Jobs amnesty amendment did not get the 60 votes needed for cloture an was rejected by a vote of 53 to 45 against.
    Senator Chambliss/Kyl amendment which also would have expanded the H02A agricultural guestworker program but would not have provided current illegal aliens with a path to citizenship was rejected by a vote of 21yeas-77nays

    There still is nothing on the Mikulski-Gregg amendment , it needs 60 No votes on it too. If there are fewer than 60 votes for cloture, there is a strong sense that the amendment will be withdrawn an we will have won. NumbersUSa source.

    How much would the thermal/night vision and a parabolic microphone cost?

    I think there would be enough of us that cannot join you that could come up with the money to buy one to be used by your unit.

    I really think that commercials work the best. I know they are expensive.

    If a person could get all the anti immigration folks an organizations to come together under one roof an donate to doing this it might work. One thing about commericals, you can show them any time of the day. I really believe that would get the message out better than any other way.

    Take every thing off the tapes, people have all taken, from garbage to every thing else an condense it into a couple different commericals.

    Make sure no "garbage" is picked up the end of the month, an be sure you take the ACLU thro all of it.

    See if they will file a law suit for you guys, for your rights being ignored. If I was 10 years younger I would be there in a minute.

    The FTAA has to be signed by the end of January. If it is signed we will be made to give up some segments of our Constitution. Yes, it is a free trade agreement. I believe it also states in the trade agreement, there will be no borders between Mexico an Canada

    So we are in dangerous times, we are now an import nation,because of the outsourcing, we are now not an export nation.

    So if we go into a recession it will not be good.

    The man that plays Jesus, was raised in Mt Veronon, Wash. My Town. HIs folks still live here.
    He said, he had a protective mat on his back to take care of the whip, but several times the guys striking him missed, and he felt the whole brunt of the whip striking him. He said the pain took his breath away, he could not breathe. He dislocated his shoulder, packing the cross, which weighed 150 pounds. He took a beating doing the movie, but was glad he got the chance to portray Jesus.
    He is a devout Catholic, Mary is a Romanian Jew.

    ok this is what they said
    But even death to a bill by the deadline could lurch back to life like the villain in a scarey movie, if the right deal is struck. Any bill can be revived at any time if it is deemed necessary to implememnt the budget.{I cannot see how the id card would implement the budget} Dead bills could also be reincarnated as amendments to related measures

    All my bills are dead but my hopes are still alive, said senate minority leader Lisa Brown, D Spokane

    On the other hand many bills that survived the cutoff deadline may look alive, but they are really dead bills walking because there is no chance the other chamber will pass them.

    One example is the senate R bill to freeze the minimum wage during periods of high unemployment-fated for deep freeze in the house. Like wise the house D plan to authorize prescripton drugs purchases from Canada will meet a silent and swift death in the Senate.

    These are not my words, they are the reportors. lol

    you are so right, it was nothing at all.

    The gal was headed to Vancouver Wash, but headed to Vancouver BC instead. She said when she got to the border she knew she was wrong, but went thro and turned around, to come back into the US. That is when they found the "gernade" which has turned out to be a paper weight filled with sand, looks like a grenade. lol

    All this was in my local paper.

    According to the paper tonite, if this did not pass by 5pm, it is dead because the dead line for passing any bill in the house or senate was 5pm today.
    I did not see this bill listed in the paper, but they do not have the lastest so will have to wait and see.

    I would like to ask every one to find all the articles on immigration, illegals, go to the url, and send the whole article to every senator, rep from your area, and the President.

    I always add all the newspapers, tv stations in the cc, so all of the above can see where the article is headed. lol

    It will not do any good for one person to do it, we need numbers=lots of people.

    I just heard on the local news, out of Seattle, that if you have your income tax prepared by an accountant, ask the accountant if they send your income tax return to a company over seas, such as India to be prepared? India was the only country mentioned, but that does not mean they are sent to an other country, another plus for out sourcing. Your identity could be stolen, is what the news reporter said.
    This seams to be the normal way any more for your taxes to be done.

    She was not going into Canada, she was coming into the US.
    They found a gernade in the glove box, she was headed to Vancouver Washington. The car was her husbands, and he is in the service, so they are checking it out, but the border opened up about 1 hour after it was closed.

    Drivers licenses for illegal aliens

    Because we both live in Washington, and here in SkagitValley we are up to our necks in illegals. Just wanted to let you know the Governor signed the bill that allows the illegals to have drivers license.

    Drivers licenses for illegals.

    Sorry but the state has already passed a bill allowing illegals to have drivers license, about 3 or 4 months ago. It was a little notice in my local newspaper. Or at least I am sure that is what it meant.

    I would say it is so, mainly because I went in last week to get my drivers license renewed. There was one examiner that spoke spanish all the time, even calling out the numbers you need to get a place in line. All the Spanish speaking people went to this counter, the rest of us went to the counters that the examiner spoke English.
    I would say two thirds of the people were HIspnaic, not one word of English did I hear from them, only spanish.

    I asked the guy next to me how they could get a drivers license if they could not speak English, and he said 'if they cannot speak english they should not be able to get a drivers license.'

    At the end of the row in front of us there was a Mexican woman who turned around and gave us a dirty look, and mouthed something, like shut up. He said I am sure if you went to Mexico they would have a separate line for the english speaking. He said they are just taking the jobs our kids use to do, and I agreeded with him. They called the Mexican gals number, she got up and charged back to where we were and said " you shut up!' He looked at her and told her to shut up and sit down. They are getting bolder by the day, demanding more every day, and one of these days, they will control the whole country. But who in the heck in our government gives a big rats a--, very few see the danger of unlimited immigration, or if they do, they ignore it, hastening the globilazion of the Americas'

    ONe step at a time, every one needs to donate. I will get a check in the mail on Monday.
    If every one that has taken a stand on illegal immigration would donate we could put him over the top.

    Have you passed on the numbers fax letter, if you got it. I just got mine, and I am writing a short note on top, to make sure they understand, and to please go and send the free faxes.
    It is really strange that an email, that means little to nothing that needs to be forwarded does, but something of this magnitude will probably just sit in a lot of inboxes or deleted. Lets hope not, just going to have to wait an see.
    I had to come and get the figures for the increase in over border crossers since Bush mentioned amnesty, so am off to find it.
