Dream Act – A Chance to Pass Amnesty

The lame duck session fully intends to destroy America from within by passing the “Dream Act;” taking advantage of an overwhelming majority of Democrats in the House and Senate with a guaranteed signature from the White House. Harry Reid is determined to ram amnesty down our throats before the balance of powers is restored in January.

A statement to FoxNews.com put out by the Republican side of the Senate Judiciary Committee said all four versions have the same “fundamental” problems, but that Democrats’ approach causes unnecessary confusion. “Democrat leaders, in their rush to pass an unpopular bill during the lame-duck session, have completely bypassed the Judiciary Committee. They have introduced four separate versions of the same bill and, without any committee review, placed each and every one of them on the legislative calendar,” the statement said. “This unusual approach creates a chaotic situation, one that makes it more difficult for the public and their representatives — as well as the press — to review this deeply controversial measure.”

It occurred to me that in order to accomplish the destruction of America from within, certain elements would have to align perfectly or such monstrous attacks on our senses could not be accomplished. How often in our history has such an imbalance of powers existed?

On an unrelated subject, I watched a show on the Planets the other night in HD. I think it was on the Science Channel. The narrator explained how the launch of the Voyager’s mission was reliant on the planets being in a certain alignment in order for their gravitational fields to slingshot the spacecraft on to each successive planet.

It would be 176 years before the next planetary alignment would allow for a trip like this. As Tom Paine {former NASA Administrator and Planetary Society director} used to say – “The last time that {alignment} happened was when Thomas Jefferson was President, and he blew it.”

With that in mind, Democrats intent on granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens against the wishes of the majority of citizens have a narrow window of opportunity to pass the Dream Act. The House and Senate are populated by a strong majority capable of passing anything their hearts desire without any possible defeat by the GOP until January, when newly elected representatives will restore a balance of power to Washington. Hopefully it will be another 176 years before the planets align giving either party such a majority of power capable of passing legislation without a care for public opinion, plain and simple right or wrong. Maybe it will be said of Obama’s administration, “…and he blew it.”

Sarah, She Wolf of the GOP

William A. Jacobson over at the Legal Insurrection blog speculated earlier this week about “The Obsession With Liberals’ Obsession With Sarah Palin”:

Charles Krauthammer has lambasted the mainstream (i.e. liberal) media for its obsession with Sarah Palin.

That goes double for liberal entertainers and academics, and triple for the left-blogosphere, which is nuts-in-the-head (that’s a precise medical term in Austrian) when it comes to Palin.

But this obsession is not a one-way street.

Admit it, many of us in the right-blogosphere are obsessed with liberals’ obsession with Palin.

It didn’t start out this way. But it has developed not because of who Palin is, but who the Palin haters are.

And yes, it is liberals, much more than even conservatives, who can’t stop thinking about her; consider the numerous polls over the last year which show Palin unable to muster a majority even among Republican voters, much less the general electorate, and yet the liberal-leaning media gives Palin more ink than any other figure in America except possibly the president himself.
