I feel it coming.
Congress is going to show their true selves and roll over so that the illegal immigrants and the Mexican government can scratch their fat little yellow politician bellies and tell them what good little gringos they are.
Hell and damnation.
The only good thing to come out of this, is the illegal immigration issue is going to do to Congress what the Assault Weapon Ban did to Congress in 1994. Whole bunch of Congresscritters who happily voted for the Assault Weapons Ban got tossed out on their treacherous asses at election time. Same thing's going to happen to anyone who votes in favour of illegal immigration this time around.
And, like the sodding Assault Weapons Ban, we may get rid of the traitors who stick us with bad legislation, but we'll still have that fecking bad legislation hanging around our necks. And we'll still have that simmering pot of shooting trouble down on our border.
Friends of mine are hinting heavily that I need to vote Libertarian this time around. Check me on this, but isn't "Free and open immigration" one of the main planks in the Libertarian Party platform?
Seems like we've got "free and open immigration" as it is. Matter-of-fact, I want Congress to sodding well do something about the "free and open immigration". I should vote for someone who's been proudly campaigning for "free and open immigration" since before Ham goosed the moose?
'Course, that describes most of Congress these days.
On the humor front, we had our very own protest march/boycott today. The only impact that I saw from the illegal population walking away from their jobs was a bunch of high school kids happily mowing lawns for $20 bucks each. I'm pretty sure the football team probably wouldn't mind a couple of more months of boycott so that they can build up their bank accounts before going to college.
So much for "shutting down the local economy".
Ah, well. Time for a couple of fingers of Maker's Mark over an ice cube, while watching the sun-set from the porch.
