A Nightmare Over

Before we all get jubilent over the impending repeal of DADT (oh, and we will), let’s also take a moment to celebrate this morning’s defeat of the preposterous DREAM Act.

With our Nation’s borders breached so frequently these days by criminals entering our Country illegally and the current Administration having the cajones to actually sue a border state for doing its job, can we pause and agree that rewarding criminals by guaranteeing their progeny legal citizenship status is a bad idea?

Just a thought before we throw our caps in the air over DADT’s repeal later this afternoon, that there are other reasons to celebrate today also.

  1. That’s good news concerning the ‘NIGHTMARE’ act.

    If we accept anyone into the United States, it should be based on each persons character, not their race. The DREAM act would have forced us to assimilate ‘foreigners’ simply because they are foreign. It doesn’t care about the character of the people that would use it.

    In spite of the obvious flaws that our immigration and naturalization service has, it is dedicated to (at least try to) initiate new members, no matter what their race, creed is. All that is required is that people be of good character.

    That DREAM act would have been a ‘pot-luck’ pick of new citizens. For every 9 honest people, we could end up with 1 murderer. Why should we risk that if there is a viable alternative?

    With DADT, there are still issues that i don’t like. While a lifestyle choice may not be any limitation to pointing a rifle and pulling a trigger, our military is still a voluntary force. It is a contract between the US government and each individual that steps forward. But with ‘Offer and Acceptance’, which is the foundation of western contract law, there is not usually an obligation to accept every offer put forward.

    Should we have to accept everyone who “volunteers for” military service?

    – Members of the Muslim Brotherhood
    – Obvious Communist sympathizers
    – People with serious medical problems (Hepatitis-C, Leprosy, Tuberculosis)
    – Irrational people (Nazi’s, Cult members, the insane)

    I think there are a few details of the reasoning for DADT that still need to be worked out. We don’t want to set a precedent that will later force us to compromise our own safety.

  2. The DREAM Act really was a nightmare. Thank God it failed. But we must be on guard for attempts to resurrect it later. Supporters of illegal immigration are as tenacious as gay rights activists.

  3. My favorites are the folks for amnesty who begin their pontification with “My parents/grandparents came to Ellis Island many years ago…”

    Yeah. They came in legally and probably would have been pissed if millions of others just showed up no questions asked.

  5. It doesn’t look good for our country. All the military officials will step down or retire from the military because of this. The war at oversea is looking so weak over there. The voters doesn’t like Obama’s foreign and military policies. It show that Obama is weak and he have a lack of inexperience and leadership. His job performance rating is not very good. Obama will lose the election in 2012 and will be a one term President.

  6. I’ve been calling it The Obscene Act, which is what it is.

    Here’s a link like minded people may enjoy. I may put it up soon as my Facebook image:

  7. I’m glad to see the DREAM Act is in a coma for now, but the only way to stop it rearing its head again is deportation of these illegal alien “kids.”

    As for DADT, I will be interested in seeing how this plays out. I have my doubts that it’s going to be a good thing, but would be very pleased to be wrong.

  9. DREAM ACT may NOT be dead (hidden in another bill)
    HR 5281

  10. I’m sorry, but going to college and learning how to binge-drink is not any kind of a public service. They make it sound like “undocumented workers” (illegal aliens) are doing us all a favor.

    It sounds more like Russian Roulette to me.

    As far as the HR 5281 goes, ‘PAY/GO’ = ‘TAX/SPEND’. Pay-Go was a lie the first time around, and it’s a lie now. Kill it!


    Another one that needs to die on the floor is the new START treaty.

    Why the hell are they in such a hurry, and if they are in a big hurry, why did they wait so long? This needs to wait until the new session in 2011 so that everyone can READ THE BILL.

  12. I would prefer that a test rollout of this policy change be tried in one branch of the service before instated throughout the entire voluntary military. We could then see what unintended consequences result as a result of this change before forcing the entire armed forces ( many of whom are currently deployed after multiple tours.) to make a big change. I am not sure the added stress of forced cultural change in combat is in anyone’s best interests including gay patriots themselves. If we start seeing activists in uniform copying the antics of the San Fran crowd then I will know this was a huge mistake… I pray that I am wrong and that this repeal is about true patriots wishing to serve openly without rubbing their beliefs in other’s faces.

  13. There are many more gay voters than illegal alien voters.

  14. There may be more gay voters than illegal voters but if they are deployed by the military, chances are that their votes won’t count at all!

  15. I found this clip of Miss Arthur’s final interview with Bea discussing her career and life in her own words. I think it’s for a show called, “Lunching with a Legend.”

    I’d hate for a full interview with Bea or the other legendary ladies in the clip to go unseen. I’d like to see if she final discusses her service in her final interview.

  16. The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pushing the DREAM act???



    by CAIR – Greater Los Angeles Chapter on Friday, December 17, 2010 at 6:07pm

    (WASHINGTON, DC, 12/17/2010) — CAIR is again calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to urge their elected representatives to support the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which may be voted on in the U.S. Senate on Saturday. The bill has already been passed in the House.

  17. Oh no!! The Obscene Act lives on!
    Time to get back to work to defeat it.

  18. My favorites are the folks for amnesty who begin their pontification with “My parents/grandparents came to Ellis Island many years ago…”

    Yeah, back when the borders were OPEN. Funny how you forgot that part, how it was dead easy to get into this country legally then.

    If it were easy to get into this country in a documented fashion, they’d be doing so. How is that so difficult to understand?

    The only reason you’d miss that point is if you believed that these people were scumbags who no matter what would skirt the law and the proper channels.

    Oh, wait…I answered my own question.

    People like you make me wish homosexuality WERE a mutable quality. Cuz really? I don’t want to share any demographic with people like you.
