Did you ever wonder if the reason behind the failure of the immigration legislation was a political stunt. Seeing all the people protesting it across the nation pretty much killed the whole idea. When a group of folks can organize that quickly and peacefully for the most part then they are what you would call a political land mine. No politician is going to walk through that field without losing a limb or two in the process.
Now all we have to do is get all those folks on Social Security organized and out there marching...or walking....or pushed to help save the system. Do you suppose all the nice folks at the immigration marches would mind lending a hand to get this system fixed?
