For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Here Comes The New Bill...Same As The Old Bill

Later this morning we should find out if the dreaded Immigration Bill will be killed again, or if it will move to a cloture vote. According to Sean Hannity there are some Senators who plan to vote for cloture (to end debate and allow the bill to be voted on once and for all) but then vote against the bill. The former requires 60 votes while the latter only 51. So in other words, a vote for cloture is a vote for the bill, even if the second vote on the bill itself is against it. That's Congress. Both of my senators (Oklahoma) are in line. Are yours? If not, get on the phone and apply pressure, then repeat. Please note: Congress approval ratings have sunk to the teens.
