The Veto

Posted by Ryan on May 1, 2007

Bush vetoed Democratic defeat in Iraq tonight and gave a speech explaining the deal to the American people.  Shrewdly using the anniversary of Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, the Dems (or “Defeatocrats” to some) wasted five days of valuable troop readiness unnecessarily in the pettiest of ways.  It’s not a “blank check,” San Fran Nan, it’s called separation of powers.  Maybe she should read the Constitution before saying what she thinks it might mean! 

I thought Bush’s speech hit the nail on the head and was not ambiguous on the deal.  Again, my consistent problem with Bush is that he never gives these speeches regularly to the American people and thereby shape the debate in his own language.  How many vetoes is this?  Two or three I think.  Stem cells, …, and this.

Immigration Crackdown

Posted by Sal on May 1, 2007

The New York Times ran a story today on how INS is cracking down by increasing the number of deportations by 20% in the last year.  The story is entitled “As Deportation Rises, Illegal Immigrants Dig In” (or, as Mrs. Sal has renamed it “Deportation Numbers up 20%…  sob stories skyrocket”.)   The story focuses on the hardship experienced by the illegals who are deported, as is typical of the Drive-By Media.  I’m actually surprised that the Times used the term “Illegal.”  Must have slipped through the copy editors. 

What is ignored in this article, and never spoken of, however, is the hardship illegal immigration causes on American workers.  Because of Illegal Immigration, working-class wages have become artificially low, and law-abiding citizens are denied jobs that they would otherwise be happy to take, because the low illegal wages given to illegal immigrants drives the wages down across the board (simple law of supply and demand). 

In related news, the pro-illegal immigration movement is holding its annual protest marches across the country today.  It is no accident that May 1 has been chosen as the date for these rallies, as May Day is a holidayof pre-Christian pagan origin that was taken by the Communist movement as a celebration of the socialist concept of labor.  It shows the true agenda of the leaders of the pro-illegal immigration movement, and how we should fight against this movement at all costs.
