O border fence, border fence! wherefore art thou border fence?
Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?

But wait, Senate rejects border fence:
Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didn’t want to delay granting illegal immigrants legal status while the fence was being built.
The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bill’s authors, voted against the fence, and two Democrats voted for it.
O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?

I got you linked up, William: ‘How About That Hispanic Assimilation…’
I posted this on the Facebook page of a group I belong to in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle area), the Puget Sound Conservative Underground: (Understand, I was once a hard core liberal – until 9/11) “Disappointing to see so many Republicans that we had hoped had a spine show themselves to be part of the problem. I used to detest Republicans for being anti- Democrat; now I can’t stand how they are nothing more than Democrat enablers. God must have both a sense of humor and irony.”
If I had it to do over, I would support Charlie Crist.
I used to be embarrassed by just one of my Senators (Nelson) before…but now…sigh….both of them are embarrassing.
If I had to do it over, I’d still pick Rubio over Crist, but I’d have been holding my nose.
It’s beginning to look like the Senate is caving in to the Amnesty Crowd and is saying, screw border security; well, that’s the practical effect of what the Gang of 8, sometimes also called Rubio’s “Crew,” is doing.
Then, the issue is what will the House do? If Boehner allows a House version to pass, then we’re screwed royally because of the Senate House Conference process for reconciling differences in their two bills. That would mean the end of America, there’s nothing left except for its burial as a free country. What happens after that will not be pleasant nor good for any of us.
My prayer then would be for me and mine to live through the hell that would bring.
I don’t understand why these fools can’t look beyond their political aspirations to gain votes from these illegal aliens and realize that knowing there will be no fence means others will flood over the border.
Dare I use the word terrorists?
Yep, agree wholeheartedly. The smell of corruption is over powering, especially for the GOP members of the Gang of 8, and yet nothing is done to remove that stench.
If this amnesty bill goes forward, the end will not be pretty yet perhaps that’s what’s necessary so that our country bottoms out so that maybe then we can cleanse our national soul.
But soft, what light through yonder window breakth?
It is the east and truth is the sun
Arise fair sun and kill the envious amnesty.
I‘m hoping there will be sword fight soon.
Two prong approach here.
1. Build the damn fence, create jobs by doing so! Umm Barry, speaking of JOBS, how is that Keystone thingy coming along?
As an aside:
Senor Rubio has just kicked his Presidential aspirations in the ass.
2. Force Mexico into U.S. Statehood. Dr. Hanson has the name already picked out, Mexifornia.
By creating Mexifornia, all auto makers that sent American jobs down Mexico way will have to pay the workers (as of this report 2010, $55 dollars an hour, versus the ALMOST $4 dollars per hour).
GM workers in Mexico earn wages and benefits of 340 pesos a day ($26.40) on average, or less than $4 an hour, said Tereso Medina, head of the union for GM’s 5,000 workers in Saltillo, a city that makes one in four Mexican autos. Ford workers in the U.S. earn about $55 an hour with benefits, compared with $50 an hour for Toyota Motor Corp.’s U.S. workers, Lewis Booth, Ford’s chief financial officer, said on a Jan. 28 conference call.
Added benefit, The U.S. can TAX the piss outta’ the Drug Cartels! Yes Hollywood AND the inner city drug lords would scream to high heaven BUT, what a God send to local professional politicians, huh? That could maybe, almost, sorta’ lower inner city crime rates. Can one imagine, Chicago, St. Louis, D.C., Philadelphia, etc. etc. with a LOW murder rate!?
Uhh, Christ on a crutch, just BUILD that Goddamn fence!
Holy Cow! An ‘aha’ moment!
Have illegals build THE fence. By gosh, if you pay them ALMOST $8 dollars an hour, ju coud ge’ mor botes 2tousan 16, Si?
Rubio believes no fence should be built and, if it were to be built, illegals should do it. When Rubio’s people talk about some Americans not being up to scratch or not wanting to work, given the animosity between the black and Hispanic communities, I’m inclined to think they’re talking about blacks.

CNN/ORC POLL: “Sixty-two percent of those questioned in the survey say that border security should be the main focus U.S. immigration policy, with 36% saying that creating an eventual path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants should be the top priority.”
The American people do NOT support this Amnesty Only approach. The rejection of the fence combined with the 25% border control effectiveness rating from the CBO could sink this bill if we raise more hell and melt the phone lines.
The duplicity and the deceitfulness of both the Administration and Congress is astounding. For years the people have insisted, “Secure the border first and then we can talk about amnesty.”
It doesn’t happen because they don’t want it to happen!
It appears that the real goal of the elite is to reduce the USA to a third world status so that we are more easily assimilated into the ONE World Government.
[…] John McCain voted against Sen. Thune’s amendment that would have required the border fence be completed before any of the amnesty stuff McCain wants […]
You are aware that “wherefore” means “why,” right?
The line “Wherefore art thou Romeo?” Does not mean “Romeo, where are you?” It means “WHY did you have to turn out to be Romeo [instead of being someone I could love without some terrible incident/aftermath]?”
So “Why art thou a border fence?” is an odd question.
You might want to loosen your hat band a bit there…
