    Received the following from one of my Senators in response to a request that he do something to secure the southern border
    After readinbg it several times, what I get out of it is, "I want to be certain that you believe I am as concerned about this as you are. Therefore, I am supporting someone else's bill to give yet more money to the countries that are causing the problem."

    Why do I not feel encouraged?

    Right there I got pissed off. This doofus can't distinguish between the legal immigration of people wanting to become Americans, and hoardes of scavengers coming here for freebies? :mad:

    I think you should fire your senator: the one you've got is twice as vague as morning fog along the coast of California.

    I am glad to know that your Senator is such a staunch supporter of ... whatever. This is the type of individual who needs to become reacquainted with making a living in the private sector.

    Hope you're being sarcastic. I don't see a joke here.

    At least we're spending energy and money on somebody's southern border.

    I write Frist all the time (every other week on average). It is all automated. His letters read exactly like that, but are half as long.

    Pure BS, he just condenses it. Personally, his leaving the Senate makes me very happy.

    I'm certain my Senate critter's letters are automated, too.

    The true magic is in the way they write these letters. They're so convoluted that they no longer have to have two letters for every topic. Now they can send the same letter to both sides of any question, and not say anything of consequence to either position.

    It's all smoke and mirrors.
