Remake 'WHAT' economy ????? The two PARTY'S in DC have ruined this economy through deregulation of the banks and the lending practices adding in cheap labor. They're whores now. We need to throw the bums out of office in a coo, like Greece. People are sick and tired of being screwed. I have so many friends that lost their homes, and 401 k to crooked banks and lender's it's a disgrace. But look at Wall street. Anyone wonder why it on the rise? How much are you paying for Gas? That's speculators buying reserves to pump up the price just like they did with housing, and they are trying to do it again to naive Americans... Sad but true. The Government and Economy work for the rich only...

Turner, you are a smug, sanctimonious, stupid, but nevertheless, over-educated loudmouth buffoon. You pollute this forum with your mendacity, hyperbole and deliberate misinformation. You may think you are a kind, well-informed and well-intentioned fighter for the truth, but you are a seditious, anti-American smart ass, the kind of person who shoots off his mouth in a bar thinking everyone is behind him, but when someone finally punches you in the mouth, the whole bar breaks out in cheers.
WOW, look who has a mouth! Change you're headline to hola isabel pelame la verga!

The "reality" is we're being invaded and liberals are part of a 5th column of traitors aiding that invasion. They can be sent home.
Has anyone done a impact study on the Maximum population this country can hold,because that's where we're headed.Keep in mind the limited area we can grown crops already because of the population explosion and the limited area we can live in,plus the Water shortage we already have in some areas for crop growing and human consumption. Nothing good will come from adding millions of more immigrants to our population legal or otherwise.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and
into the sunshine of America"
May 17, 2007

President Bush Signs Secure Fence Act SPEECH:

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. Thanks. Please be seated. I'm pleased that you
all are here to witness the signature of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This
bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders
more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.

I want to thank the members of Congress for their work on this important
piece of legislation. I welcome you here to the White House. I'm looking
forward to signing this bill.

President George W. Bush signs H.R. 6061, the Secure Fence Act of 2006, in
the Roosevelt Room Thursday, Oct. 26, 2006. Pictured with the President are,
from left: Commissioner Ralph Basham of U.S. Customs and Border Protection;
Chief David Aguilar of U.S. Customs and Border Protection; Congressman Peter
King, R-N.Y.; Congressman John Boehner, R-Ohio; and Deputy Secretary Michael
Jackson of the Department of Homeland Security; and Senator Bill Frist,
R-Tenn. White House photo by Kimberlee HewittI appreciate the Vice President
joining us today. I thank the Deputy Secretary, Michael Jackson, of the
Department of Homeland Security. Rob Portman -- he happens to be the
Director of OMB. I want to thank Ralph Basham, who is the Commissioner of
the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. David Aguilar is the Chief of the
U.S. Border Patrol.

I appreciate the fact that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has joined us,
as well as House Majority Leader John Boehner. I appreciate them coming in
from their respective states as I sign this piece of legislation. I want to
thank Congressman Peter King, who's the Chairman of the Homeland Security
Committee in the House of Representatives. I appreciate you being here,
Peter.

Ours is a nation of immigrants. We're also a nation of law. Unfortunately,
the United States has not been in complete control of its borders for
decades and, therefore, illegal immigration has been on the rise. We have a
responsibility to address these challenges. We have a responsibility to
enforce our laws. We have a responsibility to secure our borders. We take
this responsibility seriously.

Earlier this year, I addressed the nation from the Oval Office. I laid out
our strategy for immigration reform. Part of that strategy begins with
securing the border. Since I took office we have more than doubled funding
for border security -- from $4.6 billion in 2001 to $10.4 billion this year.
We've increased the number of Border Patrol agents from about 9,000 to more
than 12,000, and by the end of 2008, we will have doubled the number of
Border Patrol agents during my presidency.

We've deployed thousands of National Guard members to assist the Border
Patrol. We've upgraded technology at our borders. We've added
infrastructure, including new fencing and vehicle barriers. We're adding
thousands of new beds in our detention facilities so we can continue working
to end catch and release at our southern border. During the course of my
administration we have apprehended and sent home more 6 million people
entering our country illegally. And I thank the Border Patrol for their hard
work.

It sounds like you have not been following the debate.

Nobody is trying "to import millions" of anybody.

They are already here. It is just a matter of facing reality.
