What I Would Have Posted About...

If I hadn't gone out for my anniversary last night.

Bush irks "the base" with this immigration digs:
Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif., head of the Immigration Reform Caucus, took offense at President Bush’s assertion that critics of a Senate immigration bill were determined to find fault with the measure by looking “at a narrow slice of it.”

“Amnesty for 12-20 million illegal immigrants isn’t a ‘narrow slice’ Mr. President, it’s the whole darn pie,” Bilbray said, in a press release.

Just the facts: The Fiscal Cost of Low-Skill Immigrants to the U.S. Taxpayer. A HUGE study done by the Heritage Foundation that SHOULD have been done by Congress before this bill was even drafted.
"Each year, families and individuals pay taxes to the government and receive back a wide variety of services and benefits. A fiscal deficit occurs when the benefits and services received by one group exceed the taxes paid. When such a deficit occurs, other groups must pay for the services and benefits of the group in deficit. Each year, govern­ment is involved in a large-scale transfer of resources between different social groups..."

Clinton espouses socialism once again: Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society:
"The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an ownership society really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."

We didn't think the possibility was still on the books, but finally a traitor is actually charged with treason.
" An American member of Al Qaeda warned President Bush to end American involvement in all Islamic lands or face an attack worse than the September 11, 2001, assault, according to a new videotape.

Wearing a white robe and a turban, Adam Yehiye Gadahn, who also goes by the name Azzam al-Amriki, said Al Qaeda would not negotiate on its demands.

"Your failure to heed our demands ... means that you and your people will ... experience things which will make you forget all about the horrors of September 11th, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and Virginia Tech," he said in the seven-minute video.

Mr. Gadahn, who has been charged in an American treason indictment with aiding Al Qaeda, spoke in English and the video carried Arabic subtitles." (source)
