NEVER TOLERATE TYRANNY!....Conservative voices from the GRASSROOTS.

Washington has no conscience and no longer has any connection to We the People.

In the face of financial disaster, the liberal progressive democrat machine along with a few putrefying Republicans, continue to waste our hard earned tax money.


Immigration Bill Riddled with Pork

Lobbyists for resorts, au pair agencies, and the seafood industry successfully slipped special-interest perks into the Senate immigration bill, reports USA Today. And Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) successfully fought to include in the bill a $1.5 billion taxpayer-funded set aside for youth jobs programs.

The revelations are just the latest in what is shaping up to be a pork-laden immigration bill, says Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).

“You're left with a bill that's chockfull of de facto earmarks, pork-barrel spending and special interest sweeteners, a bill that increase the on-budget deficit, but fails to guarantee a border that's secure and offers only promises, which historically Congress has been very, very, very, very bad about keeping,” said Cornyn on Wednesday.

USA Today says the resort and au pair agency language will be a boon to these businesses:

The changes to the bill follow aggressive lobbying by resorts, au pair agencies and other industries that rely on the J-1 cultural-exchange visa program, which allows foreigners to enter the USA through 14 categories, ranging from interns to visiting scholars. The largest number, nearly 92,000 last year, entered as part of the summer-work travel category, federal records show. An additional 18,000 worked as camp counselors and nearly 14,000 as au pairs.

Businesses that hire these visa holders save money because they don't have to pay unemployment taxes, Medicare or Social Security. Participants must also have their own health insurance, another cost savings.

Cornyn also blasted what he calls the “Alaska seafood special”—language slipped into the bill by Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Mark Begich (D-AK) that will allow seafood processors to hire young foreign workers through a summer work travel program.

Cornyn is not alone in decrying the immigration bill’s taxpayer-funded crony giveaways to favored industries. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said the bill is so riddled with corporate concessions that it “reads like a Christmas wish list for Haliburton.”

Breitbart News reporter Matthew Boyle also reported on the bill’s inclusion of a crony capitalism casino kickback to Las Vegas casinos. Sens. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Dean Heller (R-NV) successfully inserted the language.

The Senate is expected to vote on the immigration bill as early as Thursday.

I've reached the point at which I'm tired of dodging and weaving, making excuses, whining, venting or merely hoping for solutions.

Are any of us really surprised by what's going on, and what has been going on for years?

Look, folks, the Republic has expired. While many of us hopefully cling to warm and fuzzy memories of simpler times in the distant past  when Public Virtue, the Constitution, Public Trust and Self-Reliance were honored and expected, others, like me, have come to accept that the party has been over for some time now. 

The only burning question for me now is: Just what the Hell are we going to do about it? First, we accept reality. It really is over and too far gone for an easy fix. Then, we look to the Founders for all appropriate solutions.  All the age-old, honored remedies are there for us to clearly see.

Finally, like it or not, it remains for us to act upon those remedies, all of which call for some form of genuine resistance which will necessitate some level of real self-sacrifice.

Acceptance of an irremediable problem is the first step on the road to  recovery.

God-given and Constitutional Remedies: Civil Disobedience, Nullification, Secession, Rebellion. They ALWAYS work, but only when they are rigorously and fearlessly applied. Time to step off the dime, folks. Unified and well-organized A-C-T-I-O-N going forward is our only way out.
