New McCain immigration bill

If you want to see a non-serious and failure-guaranteed bill, then look at the new one from John McCain and John Kyl (courtesy of  It is a five year, $4 billion plan to do more border patrol, more fencing, more National Guard, etc.  Like the Cuba embargo, the idea is that just more will finally do the trick without wondering whether the underlying logic is flawed.

And how to pay for it?  Take away money from other unnamed sources, but specifically nothing from defense.

IN GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law, of all available unobligated funds, $4,030,000,000 in appropriated discretionary funds are rescinded.

It won't work, and from many past statements I think McCain knows that.  He and Kyl can use it as an argument for more enforcement even if it doesn't pass.  But it is also a convenient way to argue for taking away money from other projects that do work but you don't like so want to de-fund.

Thumbs up for this wonderful and amazing week !

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upholds stay on Arizona’s immigration law - This is a Great Rebuttal and Refutation of all the Legal Arguments of Arizona Republicans in favor of SB 1070 that we have heard one million times amplified in the Media and the Internet ...

According to Legal Expert Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post the game is almost over for Brewer and Pearce .... There is no way that the Supreme Court contradicts the famous and prestigious Judge John Noonan that was her teacher of law.

Jennifer Rubin knows very well all these guys Judges and Justices of the U. S. Supreme Court.

So I applaud this Friday like "Hagar the Horrible" and Fred Flintstone !

Thanks God it is Friday ....

And I say this to Republicans in Arizona :

"When you see that someone is cutting your neighbor's beard, start wetting yours" - Famous Russian Proverb of the time of Peter the Great that enjoyed shaving the Boyards ( the nobility ) to humiliate them.
