Wilbur 'Shooter' Flatch: Alright, boys, this is the last shot we got! We're gonna run the picket fence at 'em! Jimmy, you're solo right! Everett, Merle should be open on the other side of that fence! Now, boys, don't get caught watchin' the paint dry!
Today, they would just give the ball to Lebron at the top of the key and let him bull his way to the basket for a slam dunk, without the need to dribble.

Entertaining, but not basketball.

Senators gained on Thursday what they clearly see as a crucial new ally in their quest to pass an immigration measure: Bill O'Reilly.
The Fox News host announced that, after the completion of a new Senate deal on border security, he was in favor of the bill's passage.
"It is time for the USA to pass immigration reform," he said. "For years I’ve called for a more secure southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach. At least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law."
O'Reilly and Fox News have been the subject of an intense, personal lobbying campaign by members of the so-called "Gang of Eight" who are working on the immigration bill and feel that the network's support is crucial if the GOP wants its base to accept the measure . The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza recently wrote that senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and others have talked privately to O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto to get them on side.
On Thursday, O'Reilly said that he had spoken to Rubio earlier in the day.
"Senator Rubio told me on the phone today that it would be at least 13 years—13—before people in the country illegally right now could gain full legal working status, and even longer to achieve citizenship," he said.

<quoted text>I disagree with all immigration at this point with the way the O'bama economy is, and including Jeb Bush. Part of his family is hispanic, I think he holds a personal view because they came here legally and they are fine up-standing people. You can't govern from a personal ideology --this is evidenced by Barack Hussein O'bama.
I disagree with all immigration too. deport all those here illegally & their offspring.

Lets make it retroactive.

Taking OBAMACARE of Business
The supposed rationale for Obamacare was that Americans pay more for health care than any other country, and yet too many of its citizens get none at all.
On the eve of implementation, two things can now be said for certain: Health care will be more expensive than ever, and worse than ever.
This will be a disaster beyond the wildest dreams of the British NHS or any other socialized system.
The Affordable Care Act was always exclusively about destroying the private insurance risk pools making premiums prohibitively expensive while accelerating the mandate-driven fascism of the US health care system with the goal of making single-payer federal leviathan health care the only functional game in town.
With this administration, political racketeering has become the modus operandi of the entire institutional left. Obama doesn't have much of a public CV but when it comes to organizing rent seekers, looters, and thugs, he's the One!
The immigration bill is full of this same thing -- diversion of funds and responsibilities to "community organizers," labor unions, and other Democratic party interest groups.
The way the bill is written now, those private Democratic party interest groups will get to re-write the material on American government that new citizens are supposed to learn and know.
This is on top of giving the Democrats 40 million new voters over the next couple of decades.
The Affordable Care Act was never affordable nor is it about care. It is a liberal boondoggle to cement their hold on the low information voter.
Yep, handing provate insurers 30 million new clients is going to kill them.

Handing Hospitals & Doctors 30 million PAYING customers is a disaster.

Jane is dumber than the idiot who wrote the copy she stole.

They use investigation as a synonym for evolving. We will get back to you later on this topic unless we are lucky and you have forgotten about it.
