    Your governor tried similar tactics in the beginning of his term.

    Not until Friday according to the article, when the petititon is served. This is simple bargaining for something back home on immigration, but less adept than what the Senators are extracting from Reid on both sides of the aisle.

    Eisenhower had the most correct and sensible approach.

    The 70 members are petitioning for a special Republican conference meeting on the bill, a “highly unusual” move to go head-to-head with the speaker, according to Reps. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Steve King (Iowa) and Louie Gohmert (Texas), who are serving as spokespersons for the group.....
    Speaks volumes doesn't it. Members of congress need to ban together in order to speak their mind. What a mess.

    I heard about them. There were no lines here.

    Do you think the people waiting in lines were poorly educated?

    and the last attempt to curtail illegal immigration happened during his administration. Let's see now, 1952-60 was 53 to 61 years ago. Since then, the only thing that seems to pass is amnesty.

    I believe that has been insinuated by Republikans like Ryan, Romney, and FOX. You are in California, not a state being ruined into the ground as I mentioned with less opportunities to vote. Ohio has been on the cutting edge of cheat for 4 POTUSA elections.

    Please excuse my dumb ass stating (PEMDAS) in #68 which was supposed to be to you. As a retired teacher still trying to teach, replace stating with students for a better meaning of PEMDAS.

    I've tried, but failed totally to understand the above post.
    The only meaning I have for PEMDAS is a mnemonic to help remember the order of operations in algebra, but can't see how that applies here.
