    I just hope the GOP doesn't go off the deep end in pursuit of some perceived but non-existent mandate. Right now they're back in control of the Senate because people are unhappy with the Democrats and that is the ONLY reason.
    How many more reasons does it take! It happened in 2010 and they didn't change their MO - eventually people get tired of complaining about it and vote them out. They had two chances, and if they don't start listening, it will happen again in 2016. 3 strikes, and you know the rest of the quote.

    when the option is to pass lots of bills with no chance or no bills with no chance, at least the former lets' people know where you stand. Some of those bills are bi-partisan, as well.

    There is a precedent for this. He'll probably use the same legal basis that Ronald Reagan used for amnesty in 1985. ie: It won't just be granted, individuals will have to sign up for it. That allows the immigration and naturalization department to vet the applicants.

    I think Reagan signed a bill into law.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigr...ol_Act_of_1986
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Thanks for that link American.

    I was working closely with about 100 illegal Mexican construction workers that year. I would guess that less than one-half of them were interested in signing up for the new amnesty. The ones that wanted to sign up were thinking that they could change jobs (for more money) much easier. The general consensus for both groups was that they were simply working out-of-town. It just so happened that the work was also out-of-country.

    They had strong nationalistic ties to Mexico. They only complained that their government was too corrupt.

    They all wanted to retire in Mexico with their friends and relatives. The younger guys showed signs of home-sickness. None wanted to become Americans and stay here. It's not that they didn't like us. They were appreciative of the work that they were able to come here and do. They just all wished that there were jobs in their home towns and States in Mexico.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
