The United Shitholes of America

Bush Attacks Immigration Deal Opponents
GLYNCO, Ga. (AP) - President Bush attacked opponents of an immigration deal Tuesday, suggesting they "don't want to do what's right for America."

"The fundamental question is, will elected officials have the courage necessary to put a comprehensive immigration plan in place," Bush said against a backdrop of a huge American flag.

He described his proposal—which has been agreed to by a bipartisan group of senators—as one that "makes it more likely we can enforce our border—and at the same time uphold the great immigrant tradition of the United States of America."
No. The fundamental question is: why has our government for so long done such a poor job enforcing our borders? Followed by the second most fundamental question: why would anyone but an idiot or liar ignore that truly fundamental question? Followed by: why, after very similar promises to "enforce the border" have been made and broken over and over and over again, would anyone but an idiot/liar ever make such arguments again?
"Those determined to find fault with this bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don't like," the president said. "If you want to kill the bill, if you don't want to do what's right for America, you can pick one little aspect out of it.

"You can use it to frighten people," Bush said. "Or you can show leadership and solve this problem once and for all."

The bill would give temporary legal status to millions of unlawful immigrants, provided they came forward, paid a fine and underwent criminal background checks. To apply for a green card, they would have to pay another fine, learn English, return to their home country and wait in line.
I for one find the entire premise of the bill flawed, not some little details.

What good are new laws when existing laws go unenforced? What good are "requirements" that nobody but idiots or liars would say will actually be followed? Why would anyone but an idiot want to become a citizen when it affords no additional rights and only more responsibilities? And finally, how can a nation full of wealthy well-educated people improve itself by absorbing millions of the world's poorest, least educated people?

Who doesn't think the millions of irredentist losers this country has already absorbed are something to be frightened of? Who isn't frightened at the prospect of absorbing millions more sure to come once they get the good news that we think we have no right to refuse them? What part of any of this makes any sense?

In the "America" I used to fantasize existed the president would have recognized that the "right thing" would be to fearlessly advocate for and protect the interests of his country and its lawful residents. He would denounce subversives who put their ethnicity above the law and eject them from government. He would confront rogues who offer sanctuary to invaders. He would root out and expel the invaders.

The "America" Bush represents is obviously totally different.

He's right about one thing. The Senate plan will "solve this problem once and for all". By obliterating any remnant of the old fantasy America. Then, maybe, he and his friends can finally admit out loud that their America doesn't really have any borders. Or immigration laws. Or citizens. You see, our all-powerful overlords no longer need the antiquated notions of the nation-state. All they require are workers who will migrate and serve wherever the overlords require them.

America is dead. Welcome to Zamerica.

Well at least GWB hasnt called me a traitor for not supporting Zamericans.

"Those determined to find fault with this bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don't like"

So those of us who find the entire bill in flaw as well as the underlying principles behind the bill are what - REALLY, REALLY DETERMINED?

The bill would give temporary legal status to millions of unlawful immigrants, provided they came forward, paid a fine and underwent criminal background checks.

So let me get this straight - all the "law-abiding" (I use that VERY LOOSELY) Zamericans have to come forward, pay a fine, get anally probed, DNA and fingerprinted - the scum of the earth that are here illegally dont have to come forward and can continue to be gang bangers and "law-breakers" by hiding in the shadows. Hmmmm... sounds like a bipartisan bill ....

Well at least our Congress is working diligently to put this bill up clean for a vote...[1-108](Amendments_For_S.1348)&./temp/~bdlq0r

This Act may be cited as ``Kansas Disaster Tax Relief Assistance Act''.
Guess you really, really, have to read some of these amendments. But, that could make you more depressed.

I've read them. Hugh Hewitt's analysis sums it up well. And this is a guy whose liberal attitudes about immigration turn my stomach.

But then that's the crux of it. Look at how surprised all these "I'm ok with immigration, I'm against illegal immigration" people are. They get all tangled up in the legalese and the details. They cannot just accept that the other side is operating in bad faith. They are not being honest about what they really want, which is NO border controls WHATSOEVER.

The details don't matter! The ACLU and fellow travellers in black robes will gut any "tough" provisions. The other side knows this. They're counting on it.

The fix is in. If the Comprehensive Suicide bill doesn't pass this year it will be back again and again until it finally goes through. Because every day that goes by more immigrants come and "we can't possibly do anything about it".

It's depressing yes, and I'd love to be proved wrong by a sudden resurgence of patriotism and national pride by an outraged law-abiding citizenry. But I just don't see it happening. Too many of the citizens are completely cowed by years of multicultural politically correct moral equivalence indoctrination. They are paralyzed by the mere potential that they might be called racists for simply acting in their own self-interest.

Rumor has it that the bill could be held up in the House. Seems there is a provision that any revenue-generating bill must originate in the House. The conservative members are licking their chops of the prospects of sending this bill into committee limbo.

Nothing like inaction to stifle bad action.

You appear to believe there are rules these guys will actually abide by.
