A Potpourri of stuff

Been a busy week... just about everywhere. The Compromise Immigration Reform bill is being crafted as we go about, & I for one have no trust in the congressional leadership or, sadly, with Pres. Bush regarding the enforcement provisions. We were fooled in 1986, & should not be fooled again!

In my job I work with many people from different countries who are here legally. They are wonderful people. Like most, I'm not against immigration - I just want it done legally. I don't think that is too much to ask or require.

Fred Thompson has a good commentary on this bill @ I will quote the last paragraph, it puts it rather succintly to my mind:

We should scrap this “comprehensive” immigration bill and the whole debate
until the government can show the American people that we have secured the
borders -- or at least made great headway. That would give proponents of the
bill a chance to explain why putting illegals in a more favorable position than
those who play by the rules is not really amnesty.

I've opined that we may hear more dubious claims from "soldiers" coming out against the war & proclaiming the horrors wrought by our troops on innocents. A recent Seattle Times article exposes one of these, one Jesse Adam Macbeth. What he & others like him have done & will do is a travesty to our military, who I believe are the greatest fighting force ever to have been on this earth & among the best & brightest this country has.

Some justice in this world, A U.S. Navy lawyer convicted of divulging information about Guantanamo Bay detainees was sentenced to six months in prison Friday. Lt. Cmdr. Matthew M. Diaz has received 6 months in prison & will be booted from the navy. This is good, the GITMO detainees live better there than in the hellholes from which they came, & this has been demagogued to death.

No WMD in Iraq? Read this.

Former UN ambassador John Bolton really did us all proud in an interview with a sniveling BBC jackal. I would hope he finds a high level position in the Fred Thompson administration!

Keep calling, faxing, writing, & emailing your senators & representatives about this amensty bill for illegal aliens. Phil Valentine has sources that tell him they are feeling the heat, & need to feel more!
