    Warning Will Robinson!

    Feel free to post comments, rants, or even personal attacks. It simply shows your wish for taunting if you do the latter.

    You can say anything you want here. But if you get stupid I reserve the right to point it out, call you lots of inventive names and laugh like hell.

    The Wide Awakes

    The bill HR418, that will make it harder for illegal immigrants to get drivers licenses has a clause in it.

    I will get to that in a moment. I think it is great legislation. Illigal immigrants shouldn't be here to begin with, much less driving.

    Anyway, on to the bit in the bill that I am laughing about.

    (1) IN GENERAL- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall have the authority to waive, and shall waive, all laws such Secretary, in such Secretary's sole discretion, determines necessary to ensure expeditious construction of the barriers and roads under this section.

    It goes on to state:

    (2) NO JUDICIAL REVIEW- Notwithstanding any other provision of law (statutory or nonstatutory), no court shall have jurisdiction--

    (A) to hear any cause or claim arising from any action undertaken, or any decision made, by the Secretary of Homeland Security pursuant to paragraph (1); or

    (B) to order compensatory, declaratory, injunctive, equitable, or any other relief for damage alleged to arise from any such action or decision.

    In other words the Dept of homeland security can build roads and barriers where and when they want to without judicial review or fear of lawsuits.
    Now what would the dept. of Homeland security need to build roads and barriers for? Security? Perhaps. But I think that this is what is really afoot.

    You remember Bill Clintons "No Roads Rule" where he put alot of land, and the natural resources on and in them, offlimits?

    Wave to Billy Boys "No Roads Rule" as it sinks slowly into the dust bin of history due to some of the most deviously cunning and perfectly executed political maneuvering I have ever personally seen. It is almost Machiavellian.

    Actually, I believe that Machiavelli would bow to the authors of this piece of legislation. Passing the senate is the problem now.
