Congressional Rip-off

Okay, SOMEONE was listening in when I called in to a radio show a month ago.

Illegal immigration was the topic. I called in and suggested that perhaps the only way to get anything done about illegal immigration was to make a bill that gave both sides everything they wanted so everyone could be pissed off about stuff they don't want being part of a bill that also did what they wanted. Now Congres has gone and done exactly that. It took tem 600 pages to outline what I could in 2 minutes of talking; but what else should we expect from a bunch of lawyers?

It will never pass, but it's valiant and thoroughly misguided effort.

Who says one man can't make a difference?


  • I don't know if I'd want to take credit for that mess if I were you ;-)

  • lol, credit? I do not take credit for the stupidity of others in any way. When I made that call I did it as a satire on the immigration impasse and said up front that it would piss everyone off, and I was right ;)

  • Well since politicians are basically clowns they probably jumped at any idea that was partly in jest.

    Seriously though, interesting series of events.

  • By the way, I've changed my blog's name to Counter-Friction Libertarian, so if you still have the old name in your links, you can change it if you want. The URL is the same.

  • The people have spoken. Just goes to show, when you get too many speaking at the same time, you just end up with white noise.

  • I see you've been on haitus for a while too. Time we get back in the ring?

  • How's about a little posty, just to let us know how you are?

  • Hey Dan.
    Hope you're ok.

  • Even though I think you're cool and agree with a lot of stuff you say, I would disagree with you on this for three reasons.

    1. What talk show did you call into? Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity? Or Air America? Oh yeah. Air America was shut down. (Good thing.)

    2. Who said you had a bunch of influence? You? Or Congress?

    3. You don't have any evidence to back up your claim.

    Maybe if you call into more radio shows, you will actually be listened to. Or start a blog and rant and rave about stuff...oh yeah, that's what you do.
