Immigration bill will make our problems even worse

Wake up, America!

What happened to the statement, it is the economy, stupid?

We thought it couldn’t get any worse with Obamacare; we were wrong. This phony Immigration Bill S.744 is going to be the icing on the cake for legal American taxpayers.

Have you ever seen Congress work so hard for illegal aliens and not even fix the real problem of border security and overstaying visa periods?

It is time to put politics aside and vote out any and all legislators that vote for bills like these, no matter their party affiliation.

If the U.S. Constitution was taught in school, we wouldn’t be having this discussion or allowing Congress to pass 1,000-page bills. The U.S. Constitution was only 18 pages.

Private sector unions, wake up! When your healthcare and energy cost rise enough, your work is going to dry up and then you will understand.

It will be too late!

Marriage can’t be redefined by the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has no more authority to redefine marriage than I have to say that water is dry. If something is true you cannot make it false.

Marriage means the blending of two different compatible parts. There are masculine traits that women lack and there are feminine traits that men lack, blending them together is and always will be marriage. Only the marriage of a man and a woman can produce a new human being so it is obvious that society should support and celebrate the man and woman commitment as the only real marriage.

Besides procreation the joining of male and female brings balance, like I said before, each lacks an essence the other has.

So what does it do to society to say men and women are interchangeable? Because gay people cannot procreate, they have to use other means to have children. They can adopt, or a female can use a sperm donor, or a male can use a surrogate.

Imagine this:

A male couple decides that they want to have a baby. They contract with a woman to be a surrogate and provide her egg and her womb so that they can have a family.

A child is born and is raised by the male couple. One day the child wonders and asks his daddies, “Where do babies come from?”

And the daddies say that the daddies love each other so much they wanted to have a baby. So your daddies went to a doctor and the doctor got baby seeds from the daddies and planted the seeds where babies grow for 9 months. And here you are!

And the sperm-donor child is raised to believe that men are unnecessary?

Truth is truth, facts are facts, marriage will always be marriage and water is wet.
