A Question for Saxby


I was at a breakfast this morning where Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson mutually loved on each other (don’t ask, don’t tell). They also heaped love on the immigration bill — basically saying it was the greatest thing ever in life, even better than sliced bread, but they would wait to decide whether to vote on it, but they sure did think the bill was great in bed, er . . . something like that.

They also — Saxby by my count 5 times — pointed out that the bill had not yet been written, though by this evening it is in final form.

So, my question — if this is the greatest bill every written, why not let us all look at it before voting on it? They’re going to file for cloture at 5 p.m. on Monday to cut debate short. Why? If it is so good, why don’t you let us have time to look it over and see just how good it is?

Oh, and one more question — Saxby, why do you value illegal aliens more than our troops? You too Johnny. Why do you guys and the President value illegal aliens more than the troops? After all, you guys are rushing to get this bill done by Memorial Day, and you’ve put the funding for our troops on hold to get this bill passed when it was only written today.

  • I do wonder if Moses would have asked for people to buy into the Ten Commandments before they had actually been written? Come on Saxby & Johnny!

  • But the bill will not be closed out this week….to be continued. And so “these are the days of our lives.”

  • “No one can find a safe way out for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result.”

    — Ludwig von Mises

    By Linda: All freedom loving Liberals and Conservatives must forge an alliance to change the course of history, as the Republican and Democrat parties are one and the same. There is no candidate getting more interest from all sides than Dr. Ron Paul for President. The American people crave for the truth and for government to be restored to the Citizens that pay the taxes.

  • Today’s sermon was on forgiveness from Matthew 18, so perhaps I should just forgive the treasonous Senators because it does not seem that they will ever work for the Citizens as they swore to do.

    I do not endorse all on this site but this photograph is what our treasonous lawmakers support. Chambliss and the whole bunch should be booted from the Senate. We can do better, and it is time for the liberty loving and Constitution loving Republicans to break away from the Neocons that are selling our Country to the highest bidders! Check out the photo, and better yet use it for your photos if you can figure out how. I suppose it is copyrighted though, but what a powerful statement!
