TODAY NEW YORK, TOMORROW ILLINOIS? ILLEGAL ALIENS AND DRIVING PRIVILEGES

Let's see: If we let them get DL's, they might buy insurance and they'll be easier to keep track of.

Ya think a program like this might encourage both illegal immigration and illegals remaining here?

Why don't we give licenses to nine-year-olds? They could buy insurance and we could keep track of them. At least they would not be rec'ing a reward for bad behavior.

Got to give the Democrats credit. If they can't get amnesty for illegal aliens passed through the front door, why not try to sneak it in through the back door? Much like the ridiculous DREAM act with chief sponsor D Durbin (D-IL).

BORDERLINE ON TOPIC

As nearly as I can determine, this idea relative to licensing irrespective of immigration status began with Gray Davis. Ah-nold campaigned against it, then adopted it. Somewhere in the mix, Ashcroft said it seemed sensible then denied ever saying it.

This thing is bpfu, as in snafu or janafu.

So you liked the DREAM Act or you didn't like the DREAM Act?

I'm not real sure the various DREAM Act iterations have poop to do with licensing adult illegals but I'll answer the general question.

The concept of kids, who bear no responsibility for their own immigration status, being afforded access to education the same as their schoolmates appeals to me. So long as we're talking removing Federal impediments, I'm OK with that. The question of In-state tuition must still be left to the states and that was my one problem with the last iteration. It bordered on being mandatory in that regard, rather than permissive.

A streamlined Act along those lines is a pretty good idea. Rather have productive wage earners when the kids grow up that unskilled folks who have difficulty taking care of themselves and their families.

You can deconstruct any of the iterations and find objectionable things but the basic concept of treating blameless folks blamelessly seems to me to be fair and to make economic sense.

You may now unleash your talking points.

I guess everybody else out there is just thrilled with the idea of Julio being out there legally on the road, even though he's illegally in our country.

This is very creepy. Wake up, People!

Discussing the DREAM Act while guys with no identity and no reliable criminal history are given and i.d. and a precious privilege. Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.

Sheesh!

School Bus, Rural. Public transportation, Urban. Except in Illinois where we're gonna p!$$ away the olympics by dismantling one of the best combined metro public transportation systems in the U.S.

Vallas looks better in the rear view mirror.

My interpretation is she hates it but would kind of like to win NY in the General Election and knows what a volatile prima donna Eliot Spritzer is. No support from the caped crusader could put Rudy over the top.

I guess you could say that is unprincipled behavior, sort of like Rudy gay-bashing or borderline repudiating Roe v. Wade.

It was a little etherial, wasn't it?

I think the CDC Bio weapons labs of Public Schools use as a giant agar dish .....incubated itself in the form of a royal @ss kicking .


But I take blame because I have been running on empty for so long my body was worn out . Only so long one can juggle 3 giant balls of fire in the air before you get burnt .



I have to mix advil 8hrs + tylenol every 4 hours just to keep the fever in check .


The roids & anti biotics seem to be staging a counter attack and the Totally narcatic cough syrup semi helps .




But frankly this SUCKS .........




But I can blog from bed via my Crack berry curve !



I love this damn thing.



I will say the iphone is COOLER .....but this blackberry is more like a pick up and not a porsche !



You should see me walk .......I appear dead drunk because the pressure in my ears + fever has made my center of balance move to another location ........




Like 4 blocks away !
