You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded.
To the question, “Why me?” the cosmos barely bothers to return the reply, “Why not?”

Los Angeles Immigration Rally Draws Thousands - New York Times

Los Angeles Immigration Rally Draws Thousands - New York Times

I cannot understand the fear of "amnesty" the right has. I cannot believe the House passed this stupidity. I hope the Senate can block it. With 5% unemployment, jobs is not the reason to keep people out... the illegals are not taking jobs away from us. Imagine the economic boom if all those hard working people could come out of the closet and really prosper. But no, the morons want to build a wall and deport everyone not here legally. It is our failed international economic policies that drove them here to begin with. The morons are afraid of amnesty, like it would cause disruption of society. Why not admit our failures, try to solve the problem instead of making it worse. I think we should forgive them being here illegally, provide amnesty as long as they all register and get a valid SSN. Contribute fully to the economy. Get driver's licenses, insurance, pay taxes fully, allow them to become citizens. That will benefit this country the most. No billions spent on a stupid, worthless wall. Bush's stupid guest worker plan is just as bad... we'll let you stay for a few years but then you have to go home... like that will work. If constraints like that are placed, no reform will work. But Bushie is just trying to find some middle worthless ground that he can appease some people with. Nothing he says anymore is worth listening to.

National Debt

They increased our credit limit to nearly $9 Trillion! I plotted our debt since 1950 and look what you get... when Republicans are in office, the debt shoots up! I got the data from the US Treasury Dept, raw data uncorrected for inflation or anything. I need to find the GNP numbers to compare with.

WASHINGTON Â? Prominent Christian conservatives warned Republicans that they must keep their campaign promises to ''core values voters'' if they seek positive results from the upcoming 2006 midterm elections. "

Very funny, who are they going to vote for instead? Democrats? Some obscure independent? I like either of those two choices... go ahead!

Very coherent writing on what it means to be pro-Choice or "pro-Life". Worth the read.

"Americans need to realize that pro-life is really just pro-birth. The Republicans' concern for mother and child is severed with the cutting of the umbilical cord."

I think the borders should be thrown open. Give everyone crossing an ID card after recording their biometrics. Labor laws should apply to all, as if they were citizens. Income and SS taxes like everyone else. Health care... I have other thoughts on that subject...
