On the immigration thing.

Look, I’m not a lawyer (one of my few redeeming traits) I didn’t read the bill, cuz I’m not suicidal, and don’t wanna become suicidal, but a long time ago I came to the conclusion that whenever I hear the word “comprehensive” I know that a lot more stuff is gonna be broken on the way to fixing one thing. The few things I do know about this bill, is that they aren’t even making a real effort to fix the one thing that should be fixed. Build a friggen wall! It’s not complicated, in fact, the very first structure ever built by our caveman ancestors (sorry geico) was likely a wall, then another wall, then another wall, and another, only after that they said “hey! you know what? we need a roof.” I’m not saying build 4 walls and a roof, just 1 friggen wall, the technology has been around for a long time. Pass one bill that simply says “Hey! lets build just ONE wall?” and I’m all for it, seeing as how I know that if we have a “comprehensive wall” bill get passed, it will be 1/3 a wall, and 6 roofs with contracts distributed over some 400 constituent area’s.
Just a wall, submit it, and kill it, see how many people who vote against get elected.
Now to my point (didn’t take any time did it? :) Hugh Hewitt who is an immigration moderate had this to say, and I think it’s awesome when smart people get so riled up that they will talk like this.
