Odds and Ends

I ate too many tacos this weekend and my tummy hurts. Here's some news...

President Bush assures everyone that his immigration reform bill is not dead. Of course, he said the same thing about Social Security privatization in summer 2005, so take that with a grain of salt. The President must really want to provide big business with cheap, exploitable labor help immigrants to take on his crazy base like this.

Another court ruling takes on the President's detainee policies: "President George W. Bush cannot order the military to seize and indefinitely detain a Qatari national and suspected al Qaeda operative, the only person being held in the United States as an 'enemy combatant,' an appeals court ruled on Monday." Why do the courts hate America?

Moonbat Colin Powell disses his old bosses, says "I would close Guantanamo — not tomorrow, this afternoon."

Oh no, Democrats have pushed for gun control, now they will never win an election again!!11!! From the Washington Post: "Senior Democrats have reached agreement with the National Rifle Association on what could be the first federal gun-control legislation since 1994, a measure to significantly strengthen the national system that checks the backgrounds of gun buyers."

Finally, lobbyists are finding the Democratic majority much harder to maneuver.
