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.
