A-M-N-E-S-T-Y, by Any Other Name....

Mark Steyn writes on the current amnesty bill....

"But, as John McCain declared, "This is what the legislative process is all about" -- and in the sense that it's a sloppily drafted bottomless pit of unintended consequences on a potentially cosmic scale whose sweeping "reforms" will inevitably require even more sweeping reforms of the reforms in a year or two's time, he's quite right. Also, as Senator McCain says, "This is what bipartisanship is all about."

I'm not a fan of "bipartisanship" for its own sake. This is a very divided political culture in which bipartisanship is all but nonexistent on everything else, starting with war and national security. So, when the political class is in lockstep bipartisan mode, that's sufficiently unusual all by itself. When it's in bipartisan mode on an issue on which the public is diametrically opposed, that looks less like bipartisanship and more like the lockstep myopia of an out-of-touch one-party state."
(Added emphasis is mine!)

Read Steyn's entire piece "Capitulation from A to Z"

It will definitely improve your eyes-open view of this BS!

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y.......That is the word, it is the fact of the deal, and how does a Congress and President carry an opposed nation of voters down this path????
