The explosives – […]

Guess We Need To Dump Some More Hypochondriacs!

I was in meetings all day, but I suspected the vote would not make it based on some early morning indications. I will be looking at the votes but it would seem more far left and far right folks moved to leave us in the same mess we have had for 20+ years. Well, there […]

Will The GOP Honor Representative Government?

There is a lot of speculation running out there that the immigration bill will fail its cloture vote test this morning. Clearly it will be close.

OK, ego-maniacal observations aside (that would mean the GOP had enormous leads in Congress) we also have polls and other DATA to understand what is really going on […]

Two “Optimistic” Views On The Immigration Bill

Putting aside the wails of the end of America as we know it from the Amnesty Hypochondriacs (and yes, I am so done with their caterwhalling) there are some people out there still striving for a good bill. Here is one I found at RCP with a list of additions to the bill I could […]
