Build the Fence First!

Once again we have the U.S. government in "do something even if it is wrong" mode.

At least that is what Presidential hopeful McCain seemed to say in his comments about the "New" immigration package.

This is the first step. We can and must complete this legislation sooner rather than later. We all know that this issue can be caught up in extracurricular politics unless we move forward as quickly as opssible. This is a product of a long hard trail of negotiation, and I am sure that there are certain provisions that each of us would not agree with, but this is what the legislative process is all about, this is what bipartisanship is all about when there is a requirement for this nation and its security that transcends party lines. I am proud to have been a small part of it.

Hugh Hewitt has translated this little political diatribe for those of us who do not understand the double tounged finesse with which McCain speaks.

Deal's done. I am the guy. I made it happen. My opinion mattered, not yours. What I do in the middle of a campaign for president has nothing to do with politics. My critics are all motivated by politics. Since I have already made up my mind, no debate is necessary, so shut up. Republicans especially shut up. This is how things get done in D.C.: You roll over for Democrats. And by the way, cutting half the fence and leaving the other half subject to the whims of the anti-border security bureaucracy equals protecting national security, just like the Gang of 14 was good for the confirmation process and McCain-Feingold good for the First Amendment. So, if you didn't hear me the first time: Shut up. Sit down. I'm your nominee.

I'm John McCain and I approved of this message.

Mitt posted:

"I strongly oppose today's bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new 'Z-Visa' does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S.

"Today's Senate agreement falls short of the actions needed to both solve our country's illegal immigration problem and also strengthen our legal immigration system. Border security and a reliable employment verification system must be our first priority."

This "New" Immigration bill currently being pushed offers amnesty to 12 to 20 million people who broke the laws to get into this country. We are being told that it is not amnesty but by all definitions it is. It demands that those who came here illegally must go home for a year and then come back legally.

Yeah! Right!

The current crop of illegal aliens will not fall for that one. They most likely will cheat any which way they can (They are already lawbreakers). They will have their cousin back home verifying their compliance while they are still working at Swifts or gardening our lawns. False papers, forged documents, bribed officials etc. will be the first order of the day.

Plus this new bill cuts down the length of the fence already promised.

The wording of the complete bill has not even been finished and by the time it is 1000 pages will be produced. It has been arranged that too little time will be left for anyone to go through it and voice objections before they vote on it.

This is not a very good example of a representative government but it is typical of the current batch of "elected representatives".

prying1 sez: Our elected officials have yet to prove they have the will to enforce our current laws concerning illegal aliens. Why should we believe they will enforce this new legislation that President Bush has promised to sign?

Call 202-225-3121 and ask for the offices of Mitch McConnell, Trent Lott or Jon Kyl, the three leaders of the GOP in the upper chamber.

Hat Tip to Hugh Hewitt (and Generalissimo) for the "McCain Quote" and his work to convince Republicans (It's hopeless to convince the Dems) that this new legislation is not the answer.

Lance Cpl. Steven Chavez
Wednesday Hero Blogroll - 16 May 07 -

The following is from The Wednesday Hero Blogroll -

This Weeks Soldier Was Suggested By Cindy

Lance Cpl. Steven Chavez
Lance Cpl. Steven Chavez
20 years old from Hondo, New Mexico
2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force
March 14, 2007

Tears ran down cheeks and strong men choked back emotion as the city of Hondo, NM payed tribute to fallen Marine, Steven Chavez. LCpl. Chavez lost his life on March 14, 2007 in a non-combat incident in which he was accidentally shot.

Chavez enlisted in the Marine Cops. right after he graduated in 2005. "You pray and you pray that the day never comes, and then it does," said Novelda Chavez, Chavez's mother. "Your emotions are mixed — it’s not true, it’s a bad dream, a bad dream you never wake up from."

In a letter Chavez wrote before he was sent to Iraq, he wrote:
"First of all I would like to thank everyone for your support. When I'm home on leave and when I'm away. That is so important to me. Thank you for your kind, supporting words in your letters and for the packages I've received. Those are awesome.

I've been through some pretty hard times, in the short time I've been in the Marine Corp. None harder then what I'm about to face. Yes I'm scared; nothing is scarier than the uncertainty of what your future holds for you. I'm prepared to face whatever lies ahead.

I put my life in the hands of the Lord. And pray that He guides my fellow soldiers and I down a safe path, that He will calm our fears, and give us the strength to do the job we have been trained to do, and to do that job well.

There are many lonely nights, when you're lying in your bunk thinking of family and friends, wondering what they are doing at that very moment. Wondering what mom is cooking for supper. I can almost taste the tortillas on the griddle.

I want to say to all of you tonight, I wouldn't change one thing about my life.

I've never been more proud of the choices I made in my life than the day I graduated from basic drill instructor placed that Anchor, Globe and Eagle Pin in my hand I knew then I was a UNITED STATES MARINE!

I'm Proud to protect and serve My Country

I'm Proud to protect and serve My Community

I'm Proud to protect and serve you

Thank you so much for your Support. Keep those letters coming. Mail is a precious commodity when you're so far from Home.



These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

These Idiots Are Going To Get Us Killed!

Warner Todd Huston posted an article at his Publius Forum concerning a Wisconsin State Journal opinion piece, Time To Try Educating 'terrorists' By Kevin J. Mack.

Kevin J. Mack lives in lala land. His attitude is that we simply walk up to Islamofacsist terrorists and

"Educate them to the fact that they are being deluded. That murderers of innocents don't go straight to paradise. That asking questions is not a bad thing and that blind obedience to anyone or any group is.

Of course this flies in the face of traditional religious thinking and will take some doing."

No wonder those on the left have gotten the tag, "Moonbats".

Hustun's take on the article is:
Now, I have spent much time on this inconsequential fellow in a back water paper that no one reads, so you might be asking if I am making too much out of this? I would reply that Mack’s example isn’t, by any means, the only MSM source that exhibits such ill conceived notions as is evidenced by an article in the Seattle Times that assures us that radical Muslims see the USA as the problem for a legitimate reason, in essence giving jihadists their blessing and showing that they “understand” their hate.

I sure did want to leave a personal message for Kevin J. Mack at the site but they did not allow comments. Figures...

I commented on Warner Todd Huston's site and said the following"

I had to check this Kevin J. Mack out a bit. He has submitted a couple letters to the editor previously and I found at Archives this little ditty he wrote:

Quote - Bush described the war on terror as a "generational struggle that will continue long after you and I have turned our duties over to others."

Kind of takes him off the hook for the eventual outcome, doesn't it? He started it, somebody else can finish it.

-- Kevin J. Mack, Ashton Corners - End Quote -

This Kevin J. Mack character really proves his ignorance concerning history. Recent history at that. Of course concerning the 9-11 attacks he would say that none of the terrorists were Iraqi's hence we should not be in Iraq.

Mack's attitude is that this is Bush's war and not a worldwide war by thugs against democracy. Thugs against Kevin J. Mack. This has me wondering if he is one of those nutters that agrees with Rosie concerning explosives at the WTC. (Bush planted the bombs and fooled the terrorists into flying into the building!)

The "Hate Bush" crowd will continue to make fools of themselves and think themselves wise and all knowing but you are right in saying it gives encouragement to the terrorist thugs. The same thugs that would ululate as they hack off Kevin J. Mack's head as he tries to present the Humanist Manifesto to them.

Cary Cartter Sez:
Write in Candidate - 2008 - 14May07

The following is from The Cary Cartter for President Campaign -

Cary Cartter sez:

Everything Was Perfect ...

A man and his wife had a son. They were very proud parents, and nurtured him through his formative years. He was a perfect specimen - ten fingers and toes, all his limbs, all the right parts in the right places.

Except for one thing. The boy would not talk.

His parents tried everything they knew to get him to talk. They coaxed him, cajoled him, even consulted the specialists.

Then, one day at dinner, the boy spoke. "Pass the salt, please."

His parents were speechless. They looked at the boy, then at each other, and then back at the boy.

The father said, "Son, why haven't you spoken before now?"

The boy replied, "Up till now, everything was perfect."

Can you see the parallel to the American government? The majority of Americans have been silent - low turnouts at the polls on voting day gives witness to the fact that most Americans are/were complacent, even (dare I say it?) lazy. Well, things aren't perfect anymore.

There are minority factions who have the ears of some very high Career Politicians. The homosexual faction wants any mention of how their lifestyle is against someone's religious beliefs to be considered "hate speech" and a "thought crime." The drug culture wants their use and abuse of narcotics and controlled substances to be accepted and no longer punishable by law.

These people, instead of working to keep this country a model of a representative republic, want to have an "anything goes" attitude. Smoking dope? That's cool. Drinking and driving? No problem. Rape, assault, murder? Fully acceptable in the land of the liberal mindset. Having limits, rules, regulations, is what allows a civilization to thrive and grow. When the rules and regulations are ignored or altered to favor one group over another, then there is no longer a mindset of "All men are created equal" - there is the onset of the "victim mentality," where the individual is no longer held accountable for their own actions, but any wrong that befalls them is a direct result of events in their past; events they have no control over, and events that they will allow to control the rest of their lives.

Everything is not perfect anymore. The time has come for We the People to stand up and be heard. It's time for We the People to let the Career Politicians know that we are no longer going to allow them to rule according to how they want to fill their pocket; they need to put the United States of America back at the forefront of their dealings and negotiations.

If they can't do that, then it's time for them to be removed from their burrows and barred from politics for the rest of their lives. It's time for the Citizens to become Statesmen; for all of us who are capable and qualified to step up and run this country using common sense and strict interpretations of the founding documents. It's time for the people of this country to reclaim their birthright. It's time for everyone to be held accountable for their own actions. It's time for We the People to take responsibility for the mess we have allowed to develop.

I am campaigning to be elected President of the United States on November 4, 2008. On most states' ballots, you will need to write in my name - Cary Cartter. In a few states, specifically those that do not allow for write in candidates for the office of President, my name should appear on the ballot as an independent candidate. Either way, voting for me will not be throwing your vote away - I am a viable alternative to "None of the Above" or the "Lesser of two Evils."

A boy was told to choose between the two cotton loving bugs. He chose the smaller of the two. When asked why, he replied "I just went with the lesser of two weevils."

As President, Common Sense would be the rule, not the exception. Whining would be limited to the sound from a dog trying to get your attention. Invaders from other countries would be treated as enemy combatants, not coddled as favored guests. Armed invaders from other countries would be shot on sight. The military (both active duty, and those who need assistance after serving active duty)would be a priority at budget time. Yes, I mean VA hospitals and benefits would be taken care of before any bridges to nowhere got built.

Border Security and National Integrity would be the cornerstones of my administration. Yes, I am a Christian (actually, a Christ-follower) and I would lead with that as a background. Before anyone puts thoughts or words in my mouth - I will not advocate the establishment of a national religion. There's a rule against that, and rumors to the contrary are false.

Wake up, stand up, and let everyone know that things are no longer perfect.

If you feel you are Out of Voting Choices, then choose to Make a Difference - write in Cary Cartter for President in November 2008. Please help me get the word out.

If you would like to know more about my stand, please visit my blog. If you have any questions you would like to see addressed, or if you would like to help spread the word about my campaign, you can e-mail me here.

Thank you for stopping by, God bless you all, Wear Red on Fridays, and write in Cary Cartter for President in 2008!
