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

Go To NumbersUSA To Fight Amnesty!

Seems like the Democrat-controlled Congress is up to their old tricks in trying to slam amnesty for illegal immigrants down our throats YET AGAIN! I am ashamed to say I was caught napping this time and arrived late to the party. What can I say? I'm on vacation and the weather is nice...finally. And that is just what those Congressmen are counting on.

It's so hard for us full-time, working stiffs to stay abreast of Congressional trickery such as this, which is why websites like NumbersUSA are so important. Not only do they keep you as informed as Michelle Malkin does, but they allow you to put together a FREE FAX that they will gleefully send to your Congressional Representative and your two Senators. I did so late yesterday and felt pretty proud of myself for getting involved. It was easy!

Here is the latest posting from NumbersUSA:

[Amnesty Stripped from Iraq Spending Bill But H-2B Increases Remain

(May 21) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) stripped the AgJOBS amnesty from the Iraq supplemental spending bill (H.R. 2642) last night as well as the increase in visas for employment-based permanent workers. Provisions to increase H-2B visas for unskilled seasonal workers remain in the bill.

The Senate has adjourned for the day, so please call your Senators tomorrow to tell them to remove the H-2B visa increases as well, and to keep the AgJOBS amnesty and employment-based permanent worker increases off the bill.

I also recommend the banners kit page where those of you who blog can add some nice banner links to lists of Senators and Representatives, who are trying to ruin our nation with Shamnesty.
