John McCain Is A Big Fat Liar

And John Hawkins at Right Wing News absolutely has the goods on him. The money quote is:

So, with that in mind, imagine my chagrin when I saw these comments in the New York Times last night (emphasis mine).

He added: “I believe we have to secure our borders, and I think most Americans agree with that, because it’s a matter of national security. But we must enact comprehensive immigration reform. We must make it a top agenda item if we don’t do it before, and we probably won’t, a little straight talk, as of January 2009.”

Mr. McCain asked others on the panels for suggestions about how to “better mobilize American public opinion” behind the notion of comprehensive immigration reform.

Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor, without integrity, who could not have captured the Republican nomination had he run on making comprehensive immigration a top priority of his administration. Quite frankly, this is little different from George Bush, Sr. breaking his “Read my lips, no new taxes pledge,” except that Bush’s father was at least smart enough to wait until he got elected before letting all of his supporters know that he was lying to them.

And he’s going to destroy the Republican Party – which seems to be his whole purpose ever since George W. Bush cleaned his clock in 2000. Its all personal with him.

And he’s a big fat liar.

Today’s Common Sense

From Arnold Ahlert at Political Mavens:

Borders. Our borders remain as porous as ever, and the virtual fence is a high-priced, “high tech” disaster. A PC screwing of gargantuan proportions–and the American public knows it. The PC-ers think they can “finesse” this one by browbeating us with name calling (xenophobia, racism, etc.) or appeals to our “reasonableness.”

The war on terror. Only a moron–or someone who can’t see beyond his politically correct nose–could look at all the acts of terror committed before and after 9/11–and come to the conclusion that terrorism is “an exaggerated threat.” PC-ers still think we can “jaw-jaw” with suicidal maniacs who boast that their principle advantage over us is they love death while we love life. What level of atrocity it would take to blow the cobwebs out of these peoples’ brains is anyone’s guess. 3000 people exterminated in an hour-and-a-half wasn’t enough. Their threshold? 56 million people died in WWll, beginning a year after Neville Chamberlain, the historical epitome of political correctness, secured “peace in our time.” Apparently we have a long way to go.

There’s more good stuff – go read it all.

Galveston Hospital Considers Denying Healthcare to Illegals

“Painful cost-cutting measures included 381 layoffs last year, which shattered morale at the island campus and may have driven off some highly regarded staff and faculty members.”This move hit particularly close to home.

A solution isn’t very clearcut either. I have compassion, but there’s got to be limits at some point. There’s only so much UTMB can do. This problem is bigger than them. Heck…it’s bigger than Texas!

GALVESTON — The University of Texas Medical Branch is considering a policy that would deny cancer care to indigent, undocumented immigrants

Turning away undocumented cancer patients undoubtedly would pull the oldest medical school west of the Mississippi into a fierce contemporary debate about the legality and fairness of treating undocumented immigrants with tax dollars when millions of uninsured legal residents can’t afford health care.
It also will force the institution to face thorny questions about simple compassion and the limits of a physician’s duty to treat the ailing.
“Certainly it’s not a decision we’re taking lightly,” said Karen Sexton, vice president and CEO of hospitals and clinics at the medical branch.
“This is not UTMB’s problem,” Sexton said. “It’s the nation’s problem; we’re trying to do the best we can to help our physicians and others with a decision by making it not so subjective. We’re trying to put up some parameters, but it hurts my heart.”

Four Percent Success

If this wasn’t a government agency, but instead a private company, all those in charge would be fired immediately. And yet, this is twice the success these clowns had in 2006 so its great news.Pathetic

The good news is that ICE was twice as effective in 2007 than in the previous year:
Federal agents who track down fugitive illegal immigrants arrested more than 30,000 people nationally in fiscal year 2007, nearly double the previous year, officials said Tuesday. . . .
There were more than 30,408 arrests nationally in fiscal 2007, which ended Sept. 30, compared to 15,462 last year, ICE said.
The bad news is that at least half of the 10.3 million immigrants who have arrived since 2000 are illegal (about 5.6 million). That’s an average of 800,000 illegals per year.
Thus ICE is capturing less than 4 percent of the criminals coming into our country each year.
