sometimes bills should die

And we are in one of those times.

I officially announce that I have lost all hope that good legislation might come out of the immigration reform debate. Senator Feinstein had it right today yet her ammendment was killed. The compromise bill that will likely pass the Senate on Thursday is infinitely flawed and I'm beginning to hope that it completely implodes in the house.

It is as ridiculous as having laws on the books that allow for the arrest of eight-year-olds who do impulsive things with tragic results.

I'm so sick of politicians oppressing the vulnerable for their own ambitions.

Can someone please explain how this makes our country safer?

What a thought -- Feinstein getting something right. My Senator annoys the heck out of me most of the time, most recently when she voted for Hayden at CIA.

But I think you are totally right about the immigration bill lurching forward at present. I hope very much that it dies.

To some extent, I think people have to frame these issues for themselves and the politicians will eventually follow.
