English-Speaking Only

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Tough Questions from Sen. Orrin Hatch

Isn't it true, General Hayden, that you are one of the bravest Americans ever? And that you are working tirelessly for peace and security, and Americans should be grateful for your prying hands on their personal information? In fact, and I challenge you to prove otherwise, General, shouldn't we just take your word for it, whatever "it" is, and go back to praying and buying things?

Wisdom from Sen. Pat Roberts

"I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment, the Fourth Amendment and civil liberties. But you have no civil liberties if you are dead," said Sen. Pat Roberts, expressing concern that when the rapture comes the dead will demand privacy protection. The Senator went on to explain his proposal to build a barbed-wire fence between this world and the next citing the millions of dead who are taking jobs from un-dead Americans.
