From the Hill:

Senate votes 68-32 to end debate on immigration; 4 p.m. final vote

The Senate voted 68-32 Thursday to end debate on immigration legislation, clearing the way for the landmark bill to pass later in the day.

The bill’s authors fell just short of their goal to win 70 votes for the legislation but said the robust bipartisan vote creates a strong mandate for the House to act next month on the issue. Fourteen Republicans voted to end debate, and no Democrats opposed it.

The final vote will take place at 4 p.m.

Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) — the four GOP authors of the legislation — and Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Jeffery Chiesa (N.J.), Susan Collins (Maine), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Dean Heller (Nev.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) voted to end debate.

    When this goes through, a LOT of people are going to lose their jobs to these same illegal aliens.

    Because they won’t (initially) be eligible for Obama”care”, they’ll be even cheaper to hire than working-class Americans, which creates a $3000/year incentive to hire the foreigners over the citizens.

    That, and the disaster that is O’care, will start to wake people up. But it may be too late, if the Ruling Class has clapped the irons around our ankles already.

    I will donate to every one of the R or L candidates that run against these 14 people if they are running in 2014. Unfortunately both Senators from MI are far left POS Democrats, one of which is in the pocket of the Muslim bortherhood and the Shoddy Retardians.

    Vote with your bucks folks, it is still cheaper than the alternative.

    Because 1986 is soooo TOMORROW!!!

    Well, they had to find a way to kill the Tea Party, and this was the best way to do so. Frankly, I think they miscalculated.

    Also, please send prayers Caveman’s way. He has but days, if not hours. May God keep him in His loving arms. 🙁

    Again. If you were President, and you secretly harbored a desire to destroy this country, and it was obvious to you that the only way to succeed was to divide and demoralize its population; destroy its economy and provide its external enemies with the tools to finish the job, what would you have done differently than Obama since his first election?

    Aside from failing at strict federal gun control measures, I can’t think of a single thing. And he has used our own weaknesses and flawed systems against us in the process. Many call him a total failure. They fail to comprehend what is actually happening here. From Obama’s point of view, he is shockingly successful.

    The GOP faithful aren’t so good at picking their heroes:

    Chris Christie – not long ago, mentioned as a favorite for 2016
    Jeff Flake – he’s a stud and a rising star!
    Scott Brown – there were plenty of GOPers touting him as a possible presidential candidate
    Marco Rubio – not long ago, he was Christie’s ostensible running mate for 2016, though not clear who was to be P/VP
    Paul Ryan – gonna balance the budget AND save Medicare!
    John McCain – war hero!
    Mitt Romney – brilliant organizer!
    Dubya
    Rove
    etc., etc., etc.

    Each went from dream candidate/leader to some varying level of reviled in pretty short order

    True, vote with your money. But if it has an “R” after it’s name, it IS part of the problem. That party has shit all over itself running McShame, then Mittens. Two limp dick do nothings.

    Stop voting for the party, people. They do not give one shit about YOU. Until you drop them, and their base shrinks to nothing, they will continue to fuck US in the ass and laugh all the way to the bank.

    That leaves… two… TWO in 100 years.

    Calling will only annoy an intern or low-level flunky who doesn’t care anyway. Unless you can get through to someone’s LD or a similarly senior staffer, it just won’t register.

    They actually do count the calls. They also count snail mail as well. Email is generally not counted.

    Now the best way to show your displeasure is at their next “Town Meeting” deal. Pack the audience with like minded people and verbally show your displeasure. Possibly make references to rope, tree, tar, feathers. If their police escort thinks about moving on you, have all your friends stand up and stare at them.

    They actually do count the calls. They also count snail mail as well. Email is generally not counted.

    If they count the calls, things have changed drastically since the days when I worked for congressional offices. At most, if their name was entered into our system, they’d get a nice “Thank you for expressing your concern regarding Issue X. It is an issue of the highest priority. Please rest assured that Representative So-and-so is working tirelessly to make sure that every constituent receives the greatest possible protection/maximum possible benefit/whatever sort of vague feel-good thing is necessary without really requiring anything be done.” As caller ID came into use, the first thing we did was check the area code: not our state? Bye. Our state, but not our district? Bye. Then check the prefix: not our district? Bye (though one boss would have us give the correct Rep’s number). Possibly our district? Answer, and send form letter if opinion phone call. Requests for services were different and were handled by staff pretty quickly. The only opinion phone calls that mattered were the ones from people who already had the numbers for people higher up the food chain.

    Snail mail? Check the address first. Not our state? Not read. Our state, but not our district? Not read (again, one boss would deliver to correct Rep for mail that came to DC – not sure how the district office handled it). Our district? Read. Opinion letters got the same response that callers got; requests for services were routed to the appropriate staff member. Again, if yours was a valued opinion, you already had the name of someone higher up to put on your piece of mail.

    The members were pretty uniformly responsive to requests for help, but really didn’t ever care much about opinion calls/letters (which were often just form letters or scripted calls, anyway.)

    It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of our beloved friend, Caveman. My day is dim and dusty, knowing he is gone.

    Sarah Palin floats idea of leaving the Republican Party [VIDEO]
    1:55 PM 06/29/2013

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the “Freedom Party.”

    Palin suggested she is open to the idea and said that if the GOP continues to abandon its conservative principles, other would follow suit.

    “I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party,’” Palin said. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”
