The news raised my ire today and I feel a rant coming on ! The Senate passed a preliminary vote in favor of the outrageous, proposed illegal alien bill. It may just be me, but, before I even consider any bill with one billion parts to it, I would pass one bill, to wit:
Build a fence along the American-Mexican border, bring all of the troops home from Iraq, re-arm and post them along said border. Once done, I'll deal with the fish in the fish bowl.
In the race for president, I'll guarantee you I won't consider: 1) Oback Obama, an upstart senator with no experience, whose middle name is Hussein and was raised as a muslim. 2) Mitt Romney, a mormon whose doctrines and ideolgies are far from mind (mine, pun intended). 3) Rudy Giuliani, whose ideas and positions shift like sands in the wind. 4) Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, who has changed from democrat to republican to independant.
All in all, the rest aren't that hot either, save Fred Thompson, who at least sounds believable. I think I'm still going to vote for Eddie Murphy.
The Pictures: A little political today (sorry 'bout that). It's called "Dress them as you will,"...., you'll see what I mean. A show of the monies involved in a recent Mexican drug bust... The "missile balloons", you'll like it...and the "usual suspects". Really ! Take a look, the "usual suspects".

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Dick Cheney and George W. Bush are having breakfast at the White House. The attractive waitress asks Cheney what he wants and he replies, "I'll have oatmeal and some fresh fruit."
"And what can I get for you, Mr. President?" George W. replies with his trademark wink and slight grin, "How about a quickie this morning?"
"Why Mr. President", the waitress exclaims, "How rude! You're starting to act like Mr. Clinton."
As the waitress storms away, Cheney leans over to Bush and says, "Mr. President, it's pronounced 'quiche'."
That's it for today, my little Nancy Drew Mystery readers. More tomorrow.
