Rudy is a Liberal Dragon

GLENN: Right. But isn't illegal immigration a crime in and of itself?
GLENN: Aren't you saying --
GIULIANI: Glenn --
GLENN: You're protecting criminals by saying that being treated as a criminal is unfair. GIULIANI: Glenn, it's not a crime. I know that's very hard for people to understand, but it's not a federal crime.
GLENN: It's a misdemeanor but if you've been nailed, it is a crime. If you've been nailed, ship back and come back, it is a crime.
GIULIANI: Glenn, being an illegal immigrant, the 400,000 were not prosecuted for crimes by the federal government, nor could they be. I was U.S. attorney in the southern district of New York. So believe me, I know this. In fact, when you throw an immigrant out of the country, it's not a criminal proceeding. It's a civil proceeding.
GLENN: Is it --
GIULIANI: One of the things that congress wanted to do a year ago is to make it a crime, which indicates that it isn't.
GLENN: Should it be?
GIULIANI: Should it be? No, it shouldn't be because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people. We have only 2 million people in jail right now for all the crimes that are committed in the country, 2.5 million. If you were to make it a crime, you would have to take the resources of the criminal justice system and increase it by about 6. In other words, you'd have to take all the 800,000 police, and who knows how many police we would have to have.

This is not the attitude I want in a Chief Executive! There are just too many bad guys, so we just have to condone it and let them go! Have these people ever heard of working on a job until it's done? The cliche is "Rome wasn't built in a day", no kidding! First you secure the borders, then you start work on reducing the numbers of people who disregard all laws except the one that protects them just now. Come on Rudy man up, or girl up if that would help, show some spine!

Less eloquently put, when somebody tries to give you the shaft, you fight like hell, you don't bend over and drop trou, whilst deciding between strawberry or mango scented ky.

Hey... maybe we can make this wok FOR us. Like maybe a whole bunch of us (say.... the entire shooting community) should get unregistered full-autos, and we can claim "hey... there are too many of us! you have to just look the other way!"

Yeah, I know... ain't gonna happen... :(
