you whine and moan that the feds don't ride to your rescue every time the wind blows, but you don't want them to take over.  if you had done what you were supposed to do, you wouldn't need the feds in the first place.

never mind....i don't think this would stand up to a supreme court challange....with the current court makeup.  in a few years?  who knows.......

Amen Kathy,
When liberals start to gain control of the military we're as good as finished :'(
Peace be yours,

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907
