You seem to be wasting a lot of your time telling us what you think of the proposal being made rather than telling us what you think of what the proposal actually says.
What's so productive about that?
Immigration reform is coming and if the people don't discuss alternative ideas and put pressure on their elected representatives to include those ideas in the final outcome then we are simply going to be saddled with Washington's latest version of amnesty and a path to citizenship.
Is that what you want, because that's exactly what you're going to get if we don't get busy and get invovled.
"NO" isn't an option anymore if it ever really was in the first place and right now may be our last chance to do something about it.
Ummmm I have made several post about the senate's guidelines.. I am not posting about a pipe dream just hard facts.. If I wanted to comment on a pipe dream I would ask Ralff to repost the BP officers plan..

If you are going to fiddle around, make sure you fiddle with tight lipped fiddler and not in the Oval Office.
People like you have to believe that it was great to allow Ken Starr to spend $90 million dollars to attack Clinton because no other U.S. presidents have been unfaithful to their wives.

Lilburn's groundhog calls for 6 more weeks of winter

There's good news and bad news for those of you who are ready for an early spring.

The famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow in Pennsylvania, meaning spring is right around the corner, but here in the South we have our own forecasting groundhog named Gen. Beau Lee out at the Yellow River Game Ranch in Gwinnett County.

Beau did see his shadow, meaning six more weeks of winter.

Immigration Plan Hinges on Definition of Secure Borders

Critics of illegal immigration aren't mollified by the security component in the Senate plan. "It's a gimmick," said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, who says the government has promised for decades to better track exits of visa holders and other measures. "If the government hasn't kept its old promises, how long will we have to wait for them to honor the new promises they're going to make?"

Jay ‘Baghdad Bob’ Carney says borders more secure ‘than ever in history’

Unfortunately for Carney, the Washington Times released a report on the same day he was making his historic declaration, and it showed that “the latest numbers from the U.S. Border Patrol suggest that the flow across the nation’s southwest border jumped by 9 percent last year.” More from that story:

New border security relies heavily on drones to hunt illegal immigrants

The Obama administration argues it's made huge strides on border security during its four years in office.

Illegal crossings are down dramatically from their high in the middle of the last decade.

But a recent Government Accountability Office report found that the Border Patrol still captures only about 60 percent of all estimated illegal border crossers, and found that while the number of apprehensions of illegal immigrants is down, drug seizures are up — suggesting traffic is increasing.

Arizona Border Residents Skeptical Of Latest Immigration Plans

The meeting was the first of two that Barber is holding. It followed a revealing audit from the Government Accountability Office that showed most of the U.S. Border Patrol’s resources in its busiest region, the Tucson sector, aren’t actually on the border.

Rebecca Gambler is the GAO auditor who extrapolated the numbers. "Fifty-seven percent of agent workdays are scheduled for interior zones which do not have miles on the border," she said.

In other words, last fiscal year, less than half of the hours worked by agents in the Tucson Sector were actually spent working on the border.

You seem to have a serious misconception about both why a person would attend a "technical" college and the requirements to legally immigrate to the United States.

As far as immigration, unless I'm mistaken, there is no requirement that an immigrant be able to speak English before they come here, only that they have a functional command of the language when they actually apply for citizenship.

If I'm wrong could you show me a link to a source that says different?

Smoke and mirrors that has a better chance of passing than you think.

Would it be better to get involved and put some real teeth into the legislation, or just mock it and end up with a general amnesty and not much else?

<quoted text>
I have acquired all the firearms I own through private sales and inheritance. It's not illegal to own a firearm and there are no laws requiring me to register the firearms that I own. However, I believe that the gun control legislation being proposed is a start at forcing all law abiding citizens who have a firearm to report their weapons and pay a fee or a fine.
Currently, If I sell a firearm to an acquaintance there is no law requiring me to fill out papers or run a background check on my acquaintance. He/she simply hands me what I want and I had him/her what she wants.
If the proposed legislation turns to law, I will have to comply with the same requirements as a licensed gun dealer or face fines and perhaps imprisonment. Should I follow the law, I would have to bring my merchandise and prospective customer to a licensed dealer, pay that licensed dealer a fee and hope that licensed dealer doesn't steal my customer after passing the background check.
Not only would this legislation screw private citizens wanting to sell or trade, it would also create tens of thousands of soft targets for federal agents to make a name for themselves busting private citizens who are now criminals for doing what they have been doing for centuries.
The Agency enforcing the proposed legislation would go to congress asking for thousands of new agents needed to enforce the rampant criminal activity and congress will approve the request and borrow hundreds of billions to fund it.
This proposed legislation is not about saving lives. It's all about money, power and control for the proponents and it will not stop with assault rifles and high capacity magazines. It will only lead to the end of the 2nd amendment and the beginning of tyranny.
That is exactly what I should have said to Jaxxon if he had worded his post differently to me instead of trying to back me into a corner. with rhetoric.

Rhetoric, propoganda, nonsense and paranoia, or is this more of that sarcasm that I never quite get?


We've already been hoodwinked by the government and industry when we allowed a law requiring that our cars be registered. That was a boon for big government allowing the creation of the department of motor vehicles. People who would never keep a job in the private sector because of their rudeness, arrogance and ignorance find a lifetime career as a result of the law. Of course, once they got control of that piece of private property, they are free to expand upon that control by forcing a property owner to purchase insurance thus enriching those who sell insurance. Governments are free to add additional fees based upon the value of that private property. There is really no need to register a vehicle anymore than a need to register bicycles or register a horse carriage but the government will never eliminate the law requiring license plates because the industry surrounding the law makes too much money off of it and they would never allow their representatives to take away from those laws. They will advocate adding to the law as long as they can make a buck.

That's what they are doing with gun control law. Legislating against other peoples private property. They are not against the property that they own. Just the types of guns that other people own. When enough people agree to that to pass it into law, the next group of law makers will expand upon it adding more types of guns and more paperwork rules and fees and fines. Eventually, all private citizens who own a gun will be listed in a central database and be required to purchase insurance for that right and to ensure the insurance doesn't expire, the registration will expire and more fees and taxes and photo ID's and training certificates and refresher certification and fees and taxes and fines and documentation...it's a slippery slope and a cash cow for bureaucrats and anyone in the gun control industry.
