This guy is an idiot (Bill Frist). I remember him standing in front of the media as they approved the largest budget in the earth's history, and had the nerve to say "there is no more fat to cut off this budget" HA! What a looser. Frist and Co. are prime examples of why the GOP is in shambles. Idiotic leadership. Terrorism is the only thing taping them together. That, and the fact that the Democratic party has been hijacked by liberal morons who have no message but to bend over and take it in the azz by all who have a hand out, or want us to convert to islam. I really feel bad for genuine democrats. Liberals like Howard Dean, Al Gore, Uncle Teddy, and John Kerry have done more to hurt the party and help the GOP than they realize. Anyhow, I've been screaming for a fence for 10 years now. The members in another forum chastized me for saying we needed one. Clearly, a fence is a must. The problem is, these clown sell-outs don't want to piss off the business's that employ illegal labor, nor the largest growing voter block in the country, Latino's. Let me make my position on illegal (important word here, ILLEGAL) immigration: it needs to stop immidiately. Build a fence, put soldiers on the border, shoot to kill. Whatever you have to do, just seal the border. Now, once you've done that, increase LEGAL immigration. I have no problem with documented foreignors coming here, working, and making a better lives for themselves. My problem is with illegal, undocumented people coming, and sucking our social services dry. Also, I am vehemently opposed to Amnesty. You cannot reward criminal behavior while punishing those who have properly respected our laws, and waited in line. http://www.washingtontimes.com/national/20060919-122133-1476r.htm Senate set to consider fence bill By Charles Hurt THE WASHINGTON TIMES September 19, 2006 The Senate, which has been the major obstacle to strict border-security legislation this year, will take up a bill this week that calls for constructing 700more miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. "It's time to secure the border with Mexico," Majority Leader Bill Frist said last night before filing the parliamentary motions to force the House-passed bill onto the Senate floor in a final effort to get a major immigration bill on the president's desk before the elections.
