Hail, Caesar!

GOP mulls end of birthright citizenship:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- House Republicans tackling illegal immigration were reported looking closely at ending birthright citizenship.

They also were discussing building a barrier along the entire U.S.-Mexican border, The Washington Times said.

Those two ideas have floated to the top of the list of possibilities to be included either in an immigration-enforcement bill later this year or in a later comprehensive immigration overhaul.

"There is a general agreement about the fact that citizenship in this country should not be bestowed on people who are the children of folks who come into this country illegally," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo.

Birthright citizenship, or what critics call "anchor babies," means that any child born on U.S. soil is granted citizenship, with exceptions for foreign diplomats.

You gotta hand it to these guys - their ambitions know no bounds. By making citizenship hereditary rather than a simple matter of birth geography, they're trying to turn us into Kuwait.

No, I take that back - not Kuwait. Imperial Rome.

Shit, first they just wanted to repeal the New Deal. Then they got cocky and decided to cancel the Renaissance. But I think they really need to think through this latest push.

I mean, if they get us back to before the birth of Christ, what will the Fundamentalist Christians do? Become Fundamentalist Apollo-ians? No, he was too enlightened - maybe Mars, or do I mean Ares?

Caught your act at Americablog. The above sounds like you've been maybe reading Lyndon LaRouche lately. As in "ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI & SEPT. 11TH, 2001 IT'S TIME TO BRING ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI TO JUSTICE"

Lyndon might be a bit barmy, but as a trusted associate says,
"May God bless Lyndon LaRouche. He may be insane, but insanity does not preclude accuracy".
