- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
In proper context, there are no "dumb" laws when states try to protect themselves, especially where the Federal Government has absconded its responsibility. Just steps towards solving real problems.
Shumer and his fellow Democrats are crap smears on the Republic.
Doesn't anybody realize an erection ( I mean election ) is just around the corner and this is all about the Hispanic vote. It doesn't really matter what the SCOTUS says. Republicans do stuff like this as well.

My point is rather clear... It's against the law to enter, live and work in this country without going through INS and aquiring permission to do so. Democrats oppose efforts to both prevent and enforce those laws... Just as they oppose efforts to prevent voter fraud and protect the integrity of the American electoral system.What is your point?
What you listed, are policy differences, not disrespect for the rule of law and enabling election fraud.
Excuse me... SB1070 helps to catch illegal aliens by allowing police to ask for proof of citizenship on traffic stops.And SB1070 in no way PREVENTS illegal immigration.
Like you didn't know what I meant.
