IMMIGRATION BILL DIES... [LIKE IT EVER HAD A CHANCE]

I love how the media yesterday was trumpeting the 'compromise' on immigration that was reached in the Senate.  Fox specifically couldn't stop tripping over themselves, high-fiving and backslapping over the fact that they 'broke' this 'news'.  What news?  Did every one read how complicated and convoluted this so-called compromise was?  If you are an illegal alien here for 5 years, you could apply for this...but, if you were only here for between 2 and 5 years, you had to do that.... blah, blah, blah.  Now... [big shocker] its apparantly dead.

What... did they actually think they were going to ask all these folks these questions and get truthful answers?  Come on now.  Point 1: No one was ever going to ask ALL these people.  Where would the manpower come from.  Point 2:  You think some illegal is all the sudden going to fess up that he has only been in the country for 4 1/2 year?  You gotta be kidding.

Let's face it.  This deal was a non-starter from the get go.  The only real solution for illegal immigration is to either let 'em all in, or close the door completely.  Those are the only two practical, workable, implementable solutions.  Of course, I would prefer the latter of these, but to waste time with bullsh*t, complicated "solutions" like this "compromise" is just useless...
