ust finished watching C-Span and the Senate just voted not to invoke cloture on the amnesty bill. There were 53 votes not to continue debate.The shocker, George Voinovich of Ohio, Republicrat, the same man who lost it on the Hannity show yesterday, voted no. My guess is that Mr. “If you vote for this bill, then it’s the end of your political career.” And I just want you to know, and I want everyone else to know: You. Do. Not. Intimidate. George Voinovich” got his ass handed to him yesterday from his constituents.
Voinovich wasn’t intimidated, he was scared. Even a pompous arrogant, and ignorant jackass like Voinovich can get the message. Though finally voting the way a Republican should, I still consider him an ignorant, pompous jackass not worthy of reelection.
Sherrod Brown, Democrat of Ohio, also voted no on cloture. Oddly enough, I received a very long and very thoughtful letter from Mr. Brown in response to a letter I had written him regarding the previous incarnation of this bill. In it he had said that if the bill remained in its current form, he ultimately could not support.
Senator Brown, you are a man of your word. Unlike Voinovich, your response to your constituent was informative and respectful. And most importantly, you kept your word. For what it is worth, my view of you has changed. Thank you.
And to Voinovich, you get no points for doing the right thing. As a Rep! ublican, you are expected to, on the big issues, to vote like a Republican. You arrogant ass.
To the members of the Coalition Against Illegal Immigration, a humble suggestion. We need to move from reaction, to setting the agenda. Minds far better than mine, need to start promoting these points, so that we the people take charge on this issue:
1. Real security on the border.
2. Employment of illegals is greatly reduced.
3. Welfare for illegals is stopped.
4. Without jobs and welfare, many illegals will leave this nation.
5. After we have secured the borders and cut off the attraction of jobs and welfare and allowed illegals to migrate back to Mexico, then we can talk about the legal status of the remaining aliens.
